#WeekendRecap: Avacado toast in Beans Brothers!!

Since I've signed up for the next Powerlifting meet, I had to start eating clean (but obviously I failed many times because my self control is weeeakkk af lol)

Just last week, me and my bee decided to go for a 'clean cheat meal'. I've been thinking about Avocado these days and I know Bean Brothers have the perfect Avocado menu to satisfy my cravings! For all you guys who don't know, their menu is super yummy.

Till today, I'm still thinking about their burger with blue cheese! It may sound 'eww' but, I swear to God the combination of meat and blue cheese is all you need to hit 'that spot'. (Sadly I did not take a photo of it last time, and for sure I will come and hunt it down again after my Meet)

Beautifully crafted Avocado Toast with Quinoa and Salad on side. So Clean and Yums.

 Somehow, my bee always pick the wrong choices. I've been telling him that the burger here is oh so damn good and surprisingly really healthy and clean (If you change the fries for salads) but he never listen to me anyway ):

He got the Big Bro! (Big Breakfast) Not really a good choice for someone who's cutting hahaha.

We pretty much just had out brunch, took lots of ootd's and finally did my product shoot for Melvita! (Like finallyyyy)

My post for Melvita here!


I will not spam my ootd's but here's one for you!

#Beauty: INSTANT RESULT FACIAL TREATMENT with Mary Cohr

If you see me up close in person, my face is at the worst state ever. Blackheads on my nose are so obvious, my complexion is just all dark and patchy, white heads black heads every yadah yadah. Can't even comprehend this situation, I haven't got time for any facials since 6 months?!

Fortunately, I got invited by Mary Cohr Malaysia to review on their latest treatment: Catio Vital Youth Treatment with device (worth RM319). Best highlight on this review is that it visibly & instantly (not even joking) rejuvenates the skin by stimulating cellular activity. PLUS, It's Personalized based on your beauty goal!! When I meant personalized, it's really personalised from every corner. Let me explain in a bit.


Guys, I mean girls, please jump with joy now because this treatment does not need the painful extraction and your pores will be taken care inside out and yes, it will be clear and clean. 

This also means, we don't need to suffer a burning red, scar'ed face and putting on makeup right after the facial is not a problem!! #Amen

HOW IT WORKS? 
Just to briefly remind you about biology, our skin's cellular activity diminishes over time especially moving towards the 30's. Without proper love and care you may look older in a shorter span of time. #truthissad This is why, Mary Cohr invented the CatioVital Youth Treatment to save your young and bouncy skin. 

CatioVital Youth Treatment involves:
Thermal Energy with Heating Mask
Higher temperatures increases cellular activity. The heat will eliminate excess sebum and toxins from the skin! 

Molecular Energy with Dynamic Ionisation
I know the words sounds complicated but this part of the treatment allow and improves penetration and optimal effectiveness of the active ingredients contain in the Serum Gels. This two (I call them) rods is super soothing as it move around the face! Almost took a nap too. 

Massage using Essential Oils
Adapted to the different skin conditions, Essential Oils releases beneficial properties and beauty-enhancing energy deep within the skin.

I mentioned earlier that this facial is fully personalised based on your skin concerns and needs. Mary Cohr have a wide range of products that will definitely suit your skin needs from Normal Skin, Dry Skin, Oily Skin, Anti Ageing, Nourishing, Moisturising, Purifying, Double Youth and more!

This facial treatment focuses on every part of your face, from my experience, my eyes, nose and other areas of my face had different needs and I was given different serums to nourish different areas. I haven't seen any facials that does this! 

CatioVital Youth Treatment offers 7 Options base on your skin condition and beauty goal:

1. Anti-Ageing
2. Anti-Wrinkle
3. Gentle Moisturisation
4. Gentle Nourishment
5. Purity
6. Brightening
7. Sun Preparation/ Repair
 (What? You can even fix your sunburns or prep your skin before going under the sun! #WIN)

Unfortunately, the products above is only available for beauty saloons to carry out facials but they also have similar products (just in different packaging) for your own home care!


Here they are! I super love how gentle the ingredients are to the skin. There's no doubt it is fragrance free, light and easy to use! They gave me some products to bring home and I'm super loving it.


Final Verdict:
The treatment was amazingggg. It was only an hour but I am super happy and pleased overall, not just my complexion but also how supple and clean my skin feels. My dark spots were instantly lighter and my face was like a baby's butt?!?! haha

Definitely recommend this to you females out there who needs a good pamper facial right now! In fact, you can do this facial because any events so your makeup will go on smoothly and nicely. #Tips

 If you would love to do a CatioVital Youth Treatment with Mary Cohr, you can contact

#Beauty: Roses for your beauty regime

Roses are red, Violets are blue. 
I'm in love with pink, you should too. 


Bio Chem (from Taiwan) is out with an upgraded face wash that will complete every girls dream of roses. You want roses for Valentines, you want it in your tea? Now you can have it on your face too, and the fragrance will linger! ps, THE PACKAGING IS PINK. I'm in looveee

Damascena Rose whitening wash 

This product with added vitamin B12 and uses Damascus rose water to bring a pleasant atmosphere with sweet aroma; it is as if you amble into a Bulgarian rose garden. 

It claims to: Relax and indulge in the aroma while washing it off your face / removing makeup. Precious Damascus rose extract is used to nourish the skin with effects of cleansing / makeup removal / moisturizing / whitening / nourishing all in one. 

I've been using mousse/foam facial wash for the longest time so using a product like this is not new to me. However if you do not know, you are in for some fun! 

Press pump to get an appropriate amount of mousse/foam to hands.

Then just wash your face as usual. Like how you normally do lol. duh

It's been a week since I've used it on my face. I love how the scent of roses is so dominant. However, my face is super squeaky clean, like literally the 'squeak squeak' sound is there after I wash it off. It's not a bad thing but I'm usually very afraid to use products that leaves my skin so squeaky for a long term because it may be too drying after a while. 

Removing makeup, does it really work?!

I have not tried it on my face with a full on makeup because my routine is to always remove it first then only cleanse.

So... I did a test! 
Here I have my eyeliner(not so waterproof)  and my concealer (by Makeupforever)

Pumping out a right amount of foam, I then wash it in a circular motion while massaging it. 

and.. here's the result!
The eyeliner is completely removed but there are still some residue left from the concealer. It's still amazing how it actually washed off so much of the products! Usually most product doesn't. 

Anyway, it's always always always better to remove makeup before cleansing face. The double cleansing is a need!

If you would like to know further about this pretty little product, click here to find out more! 


And, They are having a Buy 1 Free 1 promo right now for only RM92.07!! (you save 54%)

You can also check out their online store here or even their Facebook for more range of products! 
If you're obsess with roses, this is totally for you!

#Beauty: Brighten Dark Spots with just one step!

Back when I was still studying in high school, acne was my number 1 concern and also the only problem that wrecked my whole confidence down the drain. Whenever there's a eruption, I'll instantly squeeze them out thinking it will just go away the day after. Obviously that's not the case, I'm left with dark scars which would take a long while to disappear or just never. 

Can't believe I finally said this but I've found a solution to my embarrassing scars. 

 
Taiwan made product, Swissvita believes in natural beauty. Of course, these days most products aims to nurture and cure our own skin instead of covering them in layers of makeup. The key ingredient used is AC-11®,  a safe, plant-based, water-soluble plant extract that can only be found in the Amazon Rainforest and clinically proven to repair your DNA,  reduce skin damage from the sun and daily life activities as well as double the production of Collagen 3. Also, helping you achieve younger looking skin, reducing the appearance of dark spots and fine lines.


 This magical product is called, Swissvita Micrite 3D All use Anti-Spot Serum. It had won the Oscar beauty award for whitening and spot reducing and also rated 5 star review on Amazon. 

Packaging is very Medical-ish but the great thing is that it's aluminum sealed to prevent the risk of contamination! 


Paraben-free, Alcohol Free and Fragrance free, the product is  not oily  and light weighted which is definitely suitable for all skin types! 

I'm usually cautious when I try new products on my face. Because it is my first time using this, I test it out on a problematic spot I had recently and these are the results. Ps, excuse how disgusting my pores look close up haha


In fact it did lighten up my dark spot! I wouldn't say it was an instant effect but it took about 10 days for it to be lighten to the bottom picture.

If you guys have any problematic spots, you could surely give this a try! 
You can purchase it here for only RM130 !

#Beauty: ENHANCE YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY IN 9 STEPS

Okay. So I admit I always envy those with flawless skin. Especially those girls who still looks good even with the slight-less make up. How do you even do this?! #TeachmeSenpai
Well, lucky me I just got the secret recipe to that  baby  smooth  butt.

Shizens recently approached me to try out their new collection that promotes natural beauty while nurturing your skin from the inside out. For a busy but honestly just lazy person like me, their new collection is so simple and easy to use! It took me 2 minutes to complete my skin care and 8 minutes to apply make up. #howbouthat

The highlight of this collection will be this wonderful skin regenerating ingredient called
Ceramide III.

Shizens Visage Collection


There are 3 skin care and 6 make up products in total of this new collection.Their products are manufactured from both Korea and Japan.

I've been using this product for about 2 weeks now and it has been magical journey! My skin definitely has a healthier glow and overall improvement. Of course, I wish my skin will be as perfect as a Korean's but our weather won't do and hey, it has only been 2 weeks! haha

Here are the vital skin cares.

Key to a Healthy Skin


The Time Resistance Essence is an anti-aging essence which includes the Ceramide III makes sure to keep skin firm, toned, brighten, nourished and moisturized deep within. It strengthens and supports the renewal of our skin yet forms an effective barrier against moisture loss.

What is smooth and supple without moisture?

To double the power to a healthy skin, this Time Resistance Night Cream will lock in the essence. I recommend using this during the day too because with the lack of moisture in your skin, you might get complications like dry skin or even acne.

Even up skin tone + a pinch of lifting!

The Ultimate Potent promotes a smooth and youthful appearance instantly. Obviously, how can we miss a step like this? This product can be used to set make up or even to complete the final step of skin care routine.

Make up products
I am very very very berry excited to share their new makeup range with you guys!
To remind you again, Shizens main goal is to look as Natural possible. Stating the obvious, the range of colours are pretty neutral, inspired by the Korean makeup! Yes, Perfect for an everyday look too.

Foundation


It caught me off guard when I saw the foundation was not liquid but stick. I was really hoping it was liquid but oh well, stick works too! The Natural Pore Nutrient Foundation Pro is imparted with Vitamin E, light weight, sheer and silky. The best thing about this product is it is against fine lines and pore imperfection! WHICH ALSO MEANS NO CREASES YAS. However, I would recommend this to those with dry skin. It will be overwhelmingly moisturizing for those with oily or combination skin.

Liquid Foundation Enhancement

I know, you're like what? Foundation Enhancement? What you talking bout gurl.
The Aqua Pore Perfection serve to do some natural shading (that is if you pick a darker shade) and retain moisture of skin while reflecting the damages from UVB ray. I did not want to use it as a contour product because their darkest shade will pretty much blend into my own skin tone. They only had 3 shades. So I just use it as a glow kit or maybe even as a normal foundation.

Foundation Brush


SUPER LOVE the brush that came with the Foundation. It's mini, compact and and the brush is spreads the foundation smoothly!

Eyeshadow


I am absolutely happy with their Hue-Duo Eyeshadow in Mocha Glow even though it's just two simple colours because it's so compact, yet is my exact go to colour and easy to use! Hellooo, Orange and brown is the in thing for Korean makeup look ya know :P

Eyeliner


I AM SPEECHLESS. Their cushion liquid eyeliner absolutely blew my mind.
I have heard of BB cushion but NOT eyeliner cushion. It's super adorable and clever! The cushion sponge allows the comprised brush to fully saturate in rich and highly pigmented liquid eyeliner for smooth and even application. Now we don't need to dip into our pot of thick gel eyeliner mess and get uneven application/ ruining the brush.

Matte Lips

The Smack Lips is STUNNING. AMAZING. I LOVE IT. It's matte and actually damn long lasting! Not even kidding. Enriched with coconut oil and sunflower butter, it's does not crack your lips! Can't even beat Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid or Colourpop. I picked a brighter colour, Orange Tango because duh, I want to be as bright as the sun. Juuust kidding, the colour is super pretty.



So, Did I manage to make you fall in love with their new collection?

Because Shizens is having an introductory offer called the Visage Essential which includes:

Smack Lips- Plum Wine
Smack Lips- Orange Tango
Aqua Eyeliner - Black
Aqua Eyeliner- Brown
Hue-Duo Eyeshadow- Mocha Glow
Shizens Professional brush set (6 brushes)

#WeekendRecap: Terracotta Cafe and Boutique with my girls

*Not Sponsored*
What a lovely Sunday for a good o' brunch with my fellow blogger sisters ❤️️


Terracotta Cafe and Boutique is located in Tropicana Avenue,1st floor. Opens daily 10am to 12 midnight. This place is really new, the parking wasn't straight forward anddd there weren't any directory to where this cafe was located! But on the bright side, at least this cafe left me with positive vibes.😊

You'll see why in snippets of my little insta story below!

video

Pretty interior and best of all..
video
ALL THE Dream catchers every girl wishes for !

Yes gals, the interior is so good that it's mandatory to have a picture with this backdrop.


Of course it isn't just the interior that's amazing.. the food and beverages looks amazing too!

Yass, all 7 colours on your table.

Food was okay for me. I really liked the Nasi Lemak Biru best but the chicken was pathetically small lol.

They are especially famous for their colour changing tea and their Unicorn tears (dessert)

video
This is called, Butterfly Pea Tea. PEA NOT PEE. My first glance at the menu, i'm like BUTTERFLY PEE? LOL

Doesn't this feels a little nostalgic? Like going back to chemistry class back in high school? However, this tea doesn't taste any special. Coming from the 3 of us, we thought it just tasted just like water. They gave us lemon and honey so it should taste like honey lemon water after mixing it together with the blue tea.

And also another special beverage called ' ONE NIGHT STAND', calling out those lonely girls out there.. lol

Also mixed with the Butterfly Pea Tea, this one at least tasted better but no happening chemistry because it's just one night stand. *geddit geddit? HAHAHA*

And for the finale we got ourself the Unicorn Teardrop.

video
Excuse my imagination tho... doesn't it really look like boob implantations??

HAHAHA jokes aside..

It taste kind of like those rubbery jellies we usually eat in buffets or parties. I really liked it since I looove jellies. They actually came with Coconut milk on the side but it doesn't go well to my taste. According to them, they have 7 different colours of Unicorn Teardrops every season. I'm not sure how long does one season takes, but look out for it!

Final Verdict: The food is good and creative, ambience is lovely! Did I mention they have a boutique at the corner of the cafe too?
I totally recommend to those who wants to chill out with your best friends, take photos and eat pretty food or needs a little retail therapy!

Totally instaworthy to visit!
