Review: 100% Pure products!

Hello loves! Vegan products have always been something that I wanted to try but never did. At least I think I didn't. I can't remember trying out any vegan products before. So here here to the first one! And the products I have for you today are the 100% Pure Brightening Scrub + Mask, Purify Facial Cleanser + Mask (Acne Care) and Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream

About 100% Pure:
"The absolute most healthy, the most pure line of nourishing personal care made with the highest quality ingredients. Free of any harmful toxins that are common in other cosmetics - because our skin absorbs. Just as birth control patches and nicotine patches deliver the medication topically, whatever we apply on our skin gets absorbed which is why all 100% Pure formulas are free of harmful toxins that are commonly in other cosmetics. 100% Pure’s mission is to create the healthiest cosmetics made with the highest quality ingredients.100% Pure creates healthy products for our body and also for the environment. Our corporate offices are run by 100% solar energy, our company is 100% electric and our pure, biodegradable formulas are packaged with post consumer recycled plastic, glass, soda cans, paper and printed with biodegradable non toxic vegetable ink. 100% Pure loves animals - we are completely cruelty free and charitable towards animal welfare."

Brightening Scrub + Mask 
A 2 in 1 facial mask and scrub that nourishes and rejuvenate the skin while the perfectly round jojoba beads gently exfoliant the skin buffing away dullness, bumps and dead skin cells. The Brightening range was formulated specifically to enliven dull looking complexion to make it more vibrant, healthy and glowing. Using all natural and gentle ingredients for the brightening effect like bearberry, kojic acid, sake, fruit acids, licorice, vitamin c, lemon juice and strawberries instead of harsh chemical skin lighteners.

My first impression was that the beads look kind of weird LOL. It's very light and gentle that it doesn't irritate my skin at all. It smells like candy and citrus-y. The beads wasn't harsh at all, in fact, it's very mild. To use it, just apply it like a normal mask first for about 6-8 minutes. Then, wet your face and gently massage the product into skin using small circular motion to slough off dead skin. 

Purity Cleanser + Mask 
The Purity range is formulated specifically to give you a clear complexion and to protect against future breakouts. Detoxifying essential oils kill the acne causing bacteria while nourishing seaweeds and purifying herbs protect against future breakouts. Acnegenic skin is raw and sensitive and needs skincare that is non pore clogging, gentle and effective. This deeply detoxifying yet, gentle facial cleanser will wash away makeup and impurities while leaving your complexion fresh and purified. 

A cleanser with the same concept as an oil-based makeup remover except you leave it on for a few minutes instead of massaging your face to break off the makeup. But afterwards, the same concept will apply. You will have to wet your hands and gently massage your face till the mask becomes like a milky texture and there you have it, your cleanser! 

Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
A concentrated eye cream with potent anti-aging vitamins, antioxidants, and nourishing rosehip oil made with 100% pure, natural ingredients. This anti-inflammatory, caffeine rich green tea and coffee de-puffs eye cream reduces swelling while increasing circulation to alleviate and brighten dark circles in 4 weeks but of course, results may vary from person to person. I actually noticed the results way faster than that which amazes me so much since any eye cream and I don't really work well together. 

Brightening Mask + Scrub 118ml | RM99 
I used it once a week until it's all gone. The scent was really divine. The scrub wasn't that harsh, like I said, it's very mild but it got the job done. I didn't feel any irritation at all which was such a plus point otherwise it will take me a week to recover + it's made from natural ingredients. My skin felt soft after every usage. I just love it. Though it doesn't give an instant brightening effect, I did notice it during the third time around.   

Purify Facial Cleanser + Mask (Acne Care) 118ml | RM99 
First, let me just say that it smelt so good! It had a minty/cooling effect which gave me some sort of relaxing and soothing feel. I love the mud to milky-texture cleanser sort of way. It did leave my skin feeling fresh and purified and not to mention soft and smooth! Unfortunately, I didn't have any active breakout during my usage but it could also mean that the product really helped to prevent it. And also, it reduced the redness on my face.

Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream 15ml (RM60) | 30ml (RM90) 
One of the best eye cream I've ever tried, honestly. As mentioned, I have trouble with most eye creams because of my sensitiveness. But this eye cream is so gentle and it doesn't sting at all. Right away after the first night, I noticed that my undereyes were brighter. After continious usage, my puffiness was slowly reduced considering my sleeping pattern is messed up, still, and the dark circles were getting brighter and brighter. It smoothens my fine lines too!

Review: E.V.E ALL-IN-1 Bar

Hello loves! ❤ Yet another facial soap that I've also been loving for the past month - E.V.E (Elegant, Vogue, Energetic) All-in-1 Bar Soap. Like I mentioned in my previous facial soap review (here), I'm not into facial soap but there's something about the two facial soaps that got me on board. 

E.V.E All-in-1 Bar is one of the best facial soap I've tried so far. Handcrafted with natural glycerin combined with Austrian Deep Moor and Actived PhytoCellTec Swiss Apple Stem Cells plus Hydrating Algae Extract and Virgin Coconut Oil to create a unique multi-function bar for daily care of skin helping you to recapture the beautiful look and feel of younger & healthier skin. It's 100% plant-based and doesn't contain 'surfactants' which dries the skin nor does it contain talcum or been tested on animals. 

Benefits of E.V.E All-in-1 Bar; Restores your natural radiance, smooths skin, lighten scars and help reduces acne, eliminate dark circle and white/blackheads, and helps to close your pores. 

How to use; Slice the bar soap in whatever size you prefer. I cut them in 4 slices and store 1 slice in a small container. Make the soap lather before massaging on your face. Mind you that it has a strong smell but don't worry, it smells SEDAP! 

It's been almost 3 weeks that I've been using it. And I will keep on using it as I really like it. In 3 days, I noticed that my face was getting brighter. I felt fresh and my skin was getting smooth. The best thing I noticed was my scars were getting lighter after a week. In terms of reducing acne, it doesn't help that much but I'm happy about the scars though :D

Review: NovExpert 2 in 1 Expert Exfoliator Mask & Scrub

Hello loves! I have been a fan of NovExpert ever since I tried their Anti-Aging Eye Contour (here) and it worked for me. This time I'm trying their 2 in 1 Mask & Scrub. I love everything mask does not matter if it is sheet mask, gel mask, etc I just love them. But scrub on the other hand, I'm not really fond of. But since it is also a mask, let's see if I will enjoy it!

There are 3 steps in the Expert Radiance Programme and Step 1 is the Expert Exfoliator Mask & Scrub. Step 2 is the Vitamin C Serum and Step 3 is the Peeling Night Cream. The 2 in 1 Expert Exfoliator Mask & Scrub will deeply removes any dead skin from the surface of your skin to deep within too. Superb! A gentle key ingredient of Jojoba micro-spheres, Bamboo Silica, and Apricot Kernel powder complete the peeling process which leaves skin feeling super soft and smooth. The Lemon and Orange extracts will boost micro-circulation for an incomparable healthy radiant and vibrant glow. 

It has been expertly designed by Doctor Colletta, tested under dermatologist control, guaranteed hypoallergenic and 100% natural origin, in transforming skin from dull to radiant with the powerful 2-in-1 product that gives a new meaning to exfoliation. Main benefits of the products are exfoliation and nourishment. It is suitable for any skin type and ideal for those with dull complexion, skin slackening and fatigue. 

Tbh, I was a little bit agitated when I first pumped out the product. The particles look big for someone with a sensitive skin. But aside from looking so delicious, it also has a delicious citrus scent to it so I put on my brave panties (like I even have one but if I do, a G-sting maybe? lol) and apply it on my face. How to apply it? Apply as a mask for up to 8 minutes (6-8 minutes for oily skin with imperfections, 4-6 minutes for combo to normal, 3-5 minutes for dry skin) to loosen dead skin cells and remove impurities before gently massage in circular motion for 1-2 minutes for the key ingredients to complete the peeling process and leaves your skin smooth. Use once or twice a week.

Likes: I'm always a fan of something that smells delicious especially things that I feel like I can just eat them. When I first applied the product, I did not feel any irritation or some sort and I took it as a sign that it is safe for sensitive skin. It does gives you clean, soft and smooth skin after you wash it off. It also brightens your skin after a couple of usage.

Dislikes: The particles are a wee bit harsh for my liking though it does not irritate at all. I have to be extra careful on the areas where it is extra sensitive like my cheeks. And it is also a bit drying so it’s best to slap on some moisturizer to rehydrate skin after removing all those dead skin cells.

Overall: It is not something that I would repurchase. I would love if the particles were not that big but gentler. But I do like the fact that it is a good exfoliator and it cleanses my well, removes all the dead skin and leaves my skin feeling soft. However, it is a bit drying for my skin so it is important to apply moisturizer afterward. And do note that it is not recommended to those with super dry skin.

I miss blogging...

Hello loves! Finally, back to my blogging world. I feel like I haven't blogged for over a decade. Here's a little story; last semester was so hectic, probably the most stressful semester ever. Probably because of the Research Proposal and the subjects were hard too. My degree is finally coming to an end after all these years. I still have my practicum + thesis paper next semester and that's it. No more examinations, no more classes, no more cutting classes, assignments, etc. Aaa that's the life. Well of course, if I pass the exams lah kan have to wait for the results :s

Seriously couldn't find the time to blog at all. Thankfully there wasn't much products and events. Now that it's semester break, I might just have the time to blog. Might lah. Still have a lot of things to do and I have to improve my language as I will be teaching secondary school students next year. Yup, going to be a teacher! But I will tell you this, I have so many things to share with all of you. December may be #NoShapeDecember but for me, it's #NoSaveDecember! Since it's been so stressful, I shop a lot. So can't wait to share that! Till then...
