Review: Japan Gals Vitamin C + Nano Collagen Mask

If you have followed my Instagram and Facebook closely, you might still remembered that I have taken up a 30 days mask challenge with the Japan Gals Vitamin C + Nano Collagen mask. This is a new product I have found in the market and I want to see how well does it work on my skin. I always have confident in Japanese product especially beauty products. Just look at all the Japanese girls! They have the flawless fair skin which I would die for.

Japan Gals Vitamin C + Nano Collagen Mask contains Vitamin C derivative which is the Magnesium ascorbyl phosphate that act as antioxidant and hydrolyzed collagen, the moisturizing ingredient, to keep the skin moisturized. The packaging is pretty eye-catching in bright orange. 
So I am going to unbox it.
What I get inside is this big packet which has 30 pieces of mask inside. I find it very convenient for me to use at home as there is a zip lock to seal the packet everytime I take one piece of mask out. Instead of using the usual paper mask which is 1 piece in 1 packaging, I think this is more eco-friendly and save place for my dustbin wtf. 

There are instructions at the back. It is all in Japanese but you can always read the instruction on the outer box in English. It is really simple to use. I place this packet on my dressing table, so I won't forget to use it everyday. If you like more cooling effect, you can store it in the cooler box/fridge. 

 What I like about the product is the cotton mask's quality. It uses Japan Cotton and is Pure Cotton with no fragrance, no colorant and no mineral oil. It is thin enough so the essence will be absorbed into the skin easily. And the best thing is the shape of the mask.

To use the product is as simple as ABC. 
1. Wash your face, and apply the mask into skin.
2. You may turn the eye mask down and attach it to tje under eye-areas like the photo shown below.
I am not sure if I am the only one who always cant place the mask nicely on my face. It is usually too big or is not flexible enough to fit my face shape. But this Japan Gals VC + NanoC mask fits our Asian Face very well. Usually around the mouth area I always cant cover it all. But as you can see above, this mask has a wide cover shape for around mouth. It fits perfectly around the nose too. 

The cotton mask is in bigger sized so don't worry about the side of your skin is not covered! I really like how it fits our face nicely.

 3. Or you may close your eyes and cover the upper eyelids with mask.
It comes with the double eye treatment so your face is well-covered! 

4. Leave the mask on for about 5-10 minutes. Afterthat, remove the mask, then follow with daily skin care procedures.


 Disclaimer: I am using it everyday after I put on toner/lotion before I sleep on a clean face. After putting the mask for around 5 minutes, I remove it and pat the excess into skin. I will put the mask on my neck for about 2 minutes as neck needs delicate care too. It is then followed by my usual skincare routine. I also went for facial in the 3rd week of the challenge so skin appeared more scars at the last photo.

Left: 
Day one of using the mask. My skin was really dry and have pores problem

Middle: 
After using the mask for about 2 weeks. This is actually one of my happiest time. Skin is smooth and moisturised, pores surprisingly smaller too.

Right: 
My skin right now. Skin appeared more scars due to facial last week which poke and squeeze all over my face but the beautician did praise me for improved moisturised skin condition woohoo *successkid.jpg

Photo taken with Samsung NX Mini with no beauty mode/filter/editing.

Went to Malaysia's Clothes Buffet last Sunday and that place is crazily hot. I feel like myself is melting but my make up still stays very well! In the photo I only put on eyeliner, mascara and thin layer of BB cushion. No longer putting on thick make up because I am getting more confident in minimal make up ;)

Verdict: I wouldn't say it works like miracle. But it does help my skin to look more suppled as you can witnessed in the photo above. My skin is no longer dry like before and pores actually smaller in size too. Now my make up stays longer than before due to moisturised skin!You will be amazed at how a moisturised skin will make you feel and look better :)

You can get the Japan Gals Vitamin C + Nano Collagen Mask at selected Guardian stores. It is only priced at RM65 for 30 pieces of mask inside. Do share with me what do you think about the mask after using it. Waiting forward to it!

Samsung NX Mini Marathon


Had such a fun day last Saturday during Samsung NX Mini Marathon with another 29 bloggers! And hence the most efficient post ever hahaha try to spot me in the photo if you can!

 I am so glad to hand on Samsung's slimmest and lightest interchangeable-lens camera to-date ! The stylish design and portable of NX Mini SMART Camera has amazing image quality as it has 20.5MP BSI CMOS Sensor. Find out why I love this camera more below.
I have been using Samsung's NX200 since 1 and half year ago till now, and I am really loving it. But as it is a semi pro camera, it is a little big than usual compact camera. I have been wanted to get a smaller camera but I don't want to sacrifice the image quality. Been searching for so long and I finally found the one, the Samsung NX Mini. Perfect for a casual outing, party, or just anywhere. And guess what's the best part!

IT HAS A FLIP SCREEN!!!!! Girls, scream all you want. THIS IS THE CAMERA YOU ALL MUST GET. MUST. You don't need any filter/editing, you will just look so good naturally. Alright I will talk about how perfect is it for people like me who just love selfie so much in the other post. But first, let me take a selfie! 

What girls do when we meet together? Take all the selfie/wefie!!

To be honest my skin not so smooth one. But with this camera, I can have the perfect smooth skin <3 p="">

 Eh where was I again? Oh yea the NX Mini Marathon.
All 30 of us gathered in Nu Sentral then we take train to Plaza Seni. It feels like a graduation trip! So fun and excited :D
We were grouped into several groups and we have our mission to achieve. For my group, we have to find and take photos of food.

But first, let me take a selfie hehehehe

Just when we were leaving the train station, look what is tempting me. I really like curry puff! The typical Malaysian breakfast: Kuih, Curry Puff and Nasi Lemak

This nice guy was having his durian and we were like Sir can we take a photo of you? Then all of us selfie with him and the durian also hahaha he must be feeling like a star at that time



Been diligently taking photos of food and I can't control myself anymore. 

Die die must take a selfie with food hahaha


We then walked towards the Petaling Street, where all the nice food hidden. 


 The NX Mini take good photos effortlessly. Just a quick snap and it is all clear in details. Make people who suck in  taking artistic nice photo like me also can take pro photo like this hahaha #MacamYes

Bak gua! People busy working I busy selfie-ing hahaha

 This uncle so cute I tell you. I was asking: 'Uncle can I take photo of your food ar?' Then uncle said: 'Okok can. Go on TV one ar? Come take photo of me also' then he posed to the camera haha so sporting ar uncle!


I was really excited throughout the event! While I was taking this jumpshot photo, the guy accidentally photobombed me. And he asked if I want to take photo with him lol. Btw I like how this NX Mini can take clear photo although the object is moving!

After about an hour of walking around Plaza Seni area, we then headed to Avenue K for lunch. There was a photography competition  for us bloggers, and the prize is a Samsung NX Mini! And the winner get to choose the colour that he/she wants. Samsung NX Mini available in 5 colours: white,pink, mint green, brown and black. I am in love with the Mint Green NX Mini!!!
Guess who is the winner? is KIfli! Congrats! His photo is really good and he definitely deserves it.

Review: La Belle Skincare

A short update today. Here is a review I did for La Belle Skincare some time ago thanks to A Shopaholic's Den. Read the full article here :)

La Belle Skincare might be a little bit new for some of you, and I am glad to find out this brand from La Belle Paris Skin Care as I can say this is one of the life-changing skincare!
SAMSUNG CSC
As I have pretty sensitive skin type, I have always been careful with the selection of skincare. I did try other brands and honestly the results were not satisfactory. What I like about La Belle Skincare is the use of natural ingredients in the products. I always prefer to have natural ingredients to put on my skin as I wasn’t sure if my skin could adapt to the chemical products well
Ampoules
La Belle Skincare are mainly extracted and formulated from best of natural ingredients with an advancement in stem cell research that has an effective absorption right into our inner skin cells. Here are some of my favourites:
20140104_185119 (1)
Ampoules! Ladies, do you know ampoules are essentially important for our skin? It works just like essence, but I will say it is far more effective than that. It uses only finest botanical extracts, vitamins, enzymes and combining with advance research and technology to achieve desired skin result. I have tested on 5 different types of ampoules which is the Fair Make Up Ampoules, Eye luxe Ampoules, Vitamin C Ampoules, Sooth Hydrating Ampoules, 24K Gold Leaf Essences.
