Truly Loving Company: Promise Me

Post for a good cause.



Truly Loving Company (TLC) is back with Season 2 of the Promise Me campaign. I missed out last year's campaign. This year, 12 corporations and institutions come together to fulfill 12 golden wishes from charity organisations and I'm supporting Nuffnang's Pledge to raise funds and help Rumah Aman replace their 15 year-old electricity wiring and lightning breaker system.

What is TLC?
Truly Loving Company produces personal and household products including bath & body products, kitchen cleaners, floor cleaners, bathroom cleaners, which you can find in major supermarkets and grocery stores. When we buy TLC products, we're actually contributing to charity because 100% of the company's dividends are split between 5 charity partners they are affiliated with.

I've tried TLC's body scrub once, unsure if I got it for free or bought it during my Jog For Hope at Taylor's last year. I'm not gonna lie, it smells heavenly! I really loved it alot.

About Rumah Aman
Rumah Aman is an orphanage located in Shah Alam, with complete facilities to care for poor boys who are orphaned or from need families. The home started in 2005 and currently houses 30 boys of various ages. They are provided with education, clothing, food and shelter. Their mission is to give the best to the children.


An urgent upgrade needed for the wiring in Rumah Aman as their old wiring is quite susceptible to power outages during storms and the lighting has previously caused damage to the property before. The upgrade from the current 2 phase electrical wiring system to a 3 phase one will cost an estimated RM20,000.

Lancome Paris Visionnaire (LR2412 4%) Advanced Skin Corrector

French luxury beauty brand's latest innovation,

VISIONNAIRE [LR 2412 4%]
Advanced Skin Corrector
Skincare Ahead of its Time

A global skincare solution based on a unique molecule inspired by the botanic world's ability to repair itself.


I love how Visionnaire was made to 'Mimic' the self-healing process that plants naturally have in their system. We were taught that plants produce a 'signal-molecule' called Jasmonic acid. This activates the healing of the damaged tissues, and also serves to make them more resistant!


The problem is that there are so many types of Jasmonic acid but Lancome found one that is closest fit to our human system where then, it is developed in to Visionnaire LR 2412 for us to apply. The Visionnaire molecule behaves similarly like a 'signal-molecule' in our skin to set off chain reaction in all layes to repair, regenerate and strengthen skin tissues. 

Visionnaire molecule has the ability to 'self-propel' or diffuse through all strata of the skin - from skin surface to epidermis and dermis! 



This product have been tested on different complexions of Caucasian, Afro-American, Hispanic/Latino skin types and Asian. They used the product for 4 to 6 weeks and results varies with different ethnic group but they have 100% success of visible skin improvement for all. Especially Asian skin when it comes to skin pores, scars and marks.


Apparently the results were so convincing that two out of three of these women decided to postpone their cosmetic procedure.


All the participants got the opportunity to try the new line with a little pampering session by their facial experts. It was awesome!


First, they clean my skin first with their famous Lancome make-up remover.



Not to forget the Visionnaire Pre-Correcting Advanced Lotion


Then they used the Genifique Youth Activator, another star product of Lancome launched in 2009.





Dot the Advanced Skin Corrector on your face.


Oppsss Don't forget the neck!


Then dot the Pre-Correcting Advanced Emulsion


Massage face!!


This massage is to help activate the ingredient while using Visionnaire which will contribute in better result. Just pinch and pull upwards, even on your forehead. :)


PINCH & PULL!

I loved the short facial offered, relaxing and the product smells really really really really really.... good! It's so refreshing, motivates me to do my facial routine everyday :D

The next day, I really do see results in smaller pores. I just need to get rid some of my bigger bumps on my forehead. I'm very angry with my last skincare product, made my skin so bumpy. :( I can't wait to go for my facial and get rid of it and start using this visionnaire to correct my uneven skin tone, scars and visible pores.





I first knew about this product was from an overseas youtube guru. She have some good reviews about it too!

I linked her video here :)

Kudos!

Modelling Agenda: Some latest pictures

Update on Acuvue Advance Plus

Finally! Managed to get sometime to blog again! I've been caught up with assignments and emceeing event. Three emcee-ing in one week + classes and other events + assignment due! I didn't even have time to prepare. 

I am here to update you on my trial for the New Acuvue Advance Plus Bi-weekly Contact Lenses. You can check out the launch blog post here


I picked the best consultation and collection place on earth! I chose to have it at Look Good Optics in Bayu Tinggi Klang. This guy (forgot the name) he is a certify specialist, I know because of his certs hung behind his counter. He is one very nice eye doctor! 

He gave me a full eye check up which includes me finding out that I have a very curvy/steep eye balls! I should be wearing a contact lenses with a Base Curve of 8.3 for a better fit for my eyes. Commonly most contact lenses are made with BC 8.6/8.7 as this is the general public's BC. I am special case :D!


The eye doctor explained to me every single details and I freaking asked loads of questions. 

So I got one pair of trial lenses and wore them faithfully for the entire 2 weeks. I'm like a crazy mad woman stretch the lens to their maximum capacity, I'm so evil that they hardly get much rest to soak comfortably in the solutions. 

Usually I wakes up at 5.30am and prepare for Uni. Rush Rush Rush....
The contacts are easily wore and remove throughout the 2 weeks. 

8am-8pm classes + events + lepaking with friends + catnap on the table in Uni + some sports. 
If you think that's it, you're wrong. 

8pm onwards events + date nights + assignments craze rush!
I usually sleep about 12am. Of course not all the time I wear my contacts till 12am. 

In general, I would say that I wear my contacts on average for at least 11 hours daily. 

For one and half weeks, the contacts have served me very well! It felt really comfortable like I had perfect eyes without needing to wear any lenses. 

It only started to feel a bit dry after about 10-11 days of full comfort but the dry-ness only kicks in after about 9 hours of wearing (which means almost at the end of the day).

At the end of my last day of wearing them, I was pretty sad that I had to let them go already. :( It was a really good lens for long hours user like me. I guess I will just have to repurchase them because good quality lenses are important for the best of our eyes as we only have one pair of them. 

NO MORE Glasses for me! Chris Tan, I think you need to get contacts already!

Yuber review: Rimmel 60 seconds Coralicious.

Another review with Yuberactive

This is a super duper late review.

This time, Yuber sent me this fabulous nail colour by Rimmel London. I really love this colour, it is a red with a coral undertone. VERY PRETTY!


What is so special about this polish?
It claims that with it's new brush shape (express brush), it is a ONE Second application.

As you can see in the picture below that it has a flat and wide brush applicator. So far, this is my first time seeing this technology. I personally felt that it is kinda cool.


So I tried it out and well, sorry to say that you can't paint a perfect layer within a second. Though, the express brush applicator does help in getting the polish evenly painted with less strokes. Thus, speeds up the application process. However, it can get a little weird for the first time users as there is only two ways to apply this polish as compared to the traditional rounded brush where you can use any sides.

It finish off glossy which I am really thankful for as sometimes we really don't have time to wait for it to dry to slap on the top coat for the shiny effect. It doesn't completely dry after 60 minutes but it ready for you to be able to do other simple chores.

Pretty good polish overall. It chips off after 3-4 days which is not quite bad. Worth buying :)
