Mother's Day Special - Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Mask & Kinohimitsu Bird's Nest Drink

Salam everyone!
Welcome May, welcome to my heart ❤ May is not only my birthday month but it's also the month where we celebrate and appreciate the sacrifices and love of our mother. This is the month where people usually pamper and treat their mothers more than usual. We had a family dinner last Sunday where we celebrated my brothers' beloved birthday, my birthday in advance and also Mother's Day! since it's the first Sunday of May. But I wanted to do something more of her as she seem tense lately, so I threw her a facial party! *Warning; long post!*

My Umi is a facial fanatic but she usually prefers wearing mask after sauna (we have a sauna room at home) but since she's busy sewing curtains, it was an exception. I let her relax with Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Sheet Mask to refresh her energy. This sheet mask in particular is made to hydrate irritated and dehydrated skin. Made from 100% pure organic cotton, each sheet contains half a bottle of soothing essence which makes it suitable for sensitive skin as well. It will leave the skin feeling smooth, refreshed and moisturized. 

While chit-chatting and relaxing over our soothing mask, me and Umi shared a bottle of Kinohimitsu Bird's Nest drink. It was our first time trying a bird nest drink. 1 box contains 6 bottles. Made from 100% genuine high quality bird’s nest with America Ginseng, White Fungus and Rock Sugar, it's rich in Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) and precious nutrients. With every mouthful of the Bird’s Nest, it brings you the gift of beauty and health such as relieving fatigue and supporting respiratory health while promoting youthful, radiant and smooth complexion. 

It also helps to boost immune system and increase resistance to external environmental stress with high glycoprotein content and growth factors. I can't describe the taste but to me it's not sweet nor sour nor bitter LOL. But it's actually not bad once you've tried one. I got really fascinated by the drink. You can see what's inside and what you're about to drink. You have to shake well before drinking and once opened, you gotta drink immediately; chilled or warmed. 

After 25 minutes, it's time to remove our masks. With the balance essence on the mask, Umi rubbed it all over her body. Nope, she doesn't like to waste things haha. I usually just rub it all over my neck. The skin seriously feel soft and supple. It really does hydrate the skin. My skin was loving it till the next morning. Nothing but love for the mask tho! Glad Umi enjoyed our session together. Nothing beats her love. 

Soothing mask ingredients: Water, Sodium hyaluronate, Butylene glycol, Peg-60 hydrogenated castor oil, Dimethyl sulfone, Betaine, Natto gum, Disodium edta, Centella asiatica extract, Glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) root extract, Carbomer, Arginine, Chlorphenesin, Tocopheryl acetate, Panthenol, Luffa cylindrica fruit/leaf/stem extract, Althaea rosea flower extract, Aloe barbadensis leaf extract, Fragrance, Portulaca oleracea extract, Lysine hcl, Proline, Sodium ascorbyl phosphate, Acetyl methionine, Theanine, Apium graveolens (celery) extract, Brassica oleracea capitata (cabbage) leaf extract, Brassica oleracea italica (broccoli) extract, Brassica rapa (turnip) leaf extract, Daucus carota sativa (carrot) root extract, Oryza sativa (rice) bran extract, Solanum lycopersicum (tomato) fruit/leaf/stem extract

Klairs products are really good! Never disappoint. I blogged about one of their famous products before, here. Same goes to Kinohimitsu. Malaysian No #1 beauty drink I must say? It was nice to pamper my mom and drinking healthy drink together for a change 

So what's your treat for your mother this year?

Review: Nour Ain Beauty Care UV Foundation

Salam everyone!
Previously, I've blogged about the Nour Ain Beauty Care Skincare (Read it here(except for the their Multi V cream) and their UV Foundation is worth reviewing considering how in love I am with it and how good it is, really. Sadly, I don't remember using their UV Foundation when I first tried the brand, 2 years ago. So rugi past Izzah! It's really good. Perfect for everyday or when you're feeling lazy or just want to look glam without looking cakey or having that thick-mask-feeling. 

It's 10gm worth of product. You can buy separately for RM30 or try their trial skincare set for RM54. It comes in one shade, pink - which gives a brightening effect to your skin + a subtle glow. It's made of natural ingredients with whitening formulations and acts as a sunblock too. It claims to make the skin supple, glowy, smooth and fair naturally. It's safe to use for all skin types and non-drying at all. I wouldn't say that it's moisturizing but it certainly non-drying HAHA. 

Ingredients: Ethylnexyl Methoxycinnamate, Propylene Glycol, Peg Stearate, Clclomethicone, Titanium Dioxide, Laurert7, Methyldibrono Glutaronitrile.

It smells divine and lightweight and easy to blend. It gives a sheer to light coverage and certainly not build-able. I see it more as a tinted moisturizer than a foundation. It lightens up the scars and almost covers them up fully. It does feel sticky/tacky. You can use it as a primer if you wish to use a foundation after. I normally just conceal any areas that needed a bit extra coverage. You can see how good of a coverage it gives me. I even use this for a night out makeup and I look flawless! Well not to puji diri lah kan aherher. 

It serious lasts long and believe it or not, it's sweat-proof! I once washed my car in the middle of the Afternoon and I was sweaty af like my whole face was crying. Once done, I chilled for a few minutes and pat dry my face with a tissue and my foundation seriously looked untouched. If ada pun, tak noticeable pun. Just touch up powder sikit, and I look fresh balik. And that's why I love it so much. Perfect for me. And because of this, my makeup routine jadi 15 minutes je every morning instead of 45 minutes-1.5 hours. The only thing I dislike is that it makes my nose oily sangat. But the glowy part, I loike. 

Nour Ain, use it to be believe it! (Ceh, cam kena sponsor pula hahahahaha)

Review: Nour Ain Beauty Care Skincare Full Set

Salam everyone!
HI! I'm back hehe. I know, it's a bit shocking of me to try local skincare of my own accord. Especially given my past experience with local skincare, Azie Kosmetik (read it here). I have tried Nour Ain before, roughly around 2 years ago but my skin was at its worst so I stopped and started consuming Accutane. If you have severe acne problem, you can do some research on Accutane and consult your local doctors on it. It's good! 

But because one of my BFFs is an avid user and strong believer (HAHA HI MEDINA :P) of Nour Ain and she's fairer than me now, I got inspired to try it once again. She also managed to influence her housemates to try this brand too. Her skin shows so much improvement so tadaa! here I am now hehe. Been using it for a month now and a month is enough for me to document my thoughts and reviews. Gituu~

 Trial Set 3 in 1 - RM 54
UV Foundation - RM30      |      Night Cream - RM40       |       Toner - RM30      |       Vita - C Serum - RM22 (10ml)   RM66 (30ml)
I started with the trial set; consisting of Beauty Soap (60gm full size), UV Foundation (10gm full size) and Night Cream (5gm deluxe size). But the Night Cream only lasted me for 1 week++ so I bought the full size after that. For the soap, I cut it into smaller pieces and store it in my Clinique Soap Case from my previous Clinique Soap. 

My skincare regime: I wash my face 2x a day with the Beauty Soap using my clarisonic. Then I either air-dry my face or pat it dry with a tissue. Once dry, I spray the toner evenly and pat it into my skin. For Morning, I continue my regime with Clindamycin Cream just around acne area before putting on Sunblock. I know the UV Foundation is also a sunblock in disguise but I have major trust issues with products claiming to have sunblock in it (ie: moisturizer, bb cream, etc). Only then I apply the UV Foundation. For Night, after toner, I apply the Vita-C Serum and pat in into my skin as well. I wait for it to absorb before spreading B.Liv Off With Those Heads (here) around my nose and chin. And lastly, I spread the Night Cream all over my face. 

Honestly, I've never been more eager to clean my face each day as I love how clean it is. I saw improvement around Day 5 of using it. My skin is improving a lot and to see it changing positively right before me is just, Alhamdulillah :') I can now face the public with no makeup! hehe. My acne has reduced tremendously. Not that I have a lot when I started but it pops out lesser than usual inc during period. My skin becomes so smooth now, a tad fair and my scars are fading bit by bit. My skin is still oily and my pores are a bit enlarged and more visible now OMG. But everything smells nice and calming. My skin loves it so much! A must try! I even got my sister to try it too. SO IN LOVE WITH THIS BRAND! P/s: Will review the UV Foundation soon!
