Origins Sensory Therapy Peace of Mind  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in

Origins Says:
On-the-spot relief

When the world closes in on you and your head feels a size too small, apply just two dabs of Origins mind-clearing formula on the back of your neck, temples and earlobes. You'll feel a tingling sensation as pressure, tension and tightness begin to melt away.
Best for all skin types

How to use: 
Place three small dabs on fingertips. Take a deep breath to experience Peace of Mind®'s stress relieving aromas. 

Massage into the back of neck, earlobes, and temples (closer to the hairline than to eyes.)

Foxy Frangipani Says:
Nett Wt: 15ml
Texture: Cream
Scent: Peppermint
Colour: White 

One of Origins' bestseller item. It does smell good and refreshing.
Once applied onto skin, it gives a cooling sensation.

Doesn't last long though. Easy to carry around, but I rarely do as I like to carry my bag light.

It is nice to have one, but not a necessity. Nothing too special about this.
I think this is comparable to "minyak angin"; only much more expensive.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Exfoliator  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

The Body Shop Says:
Creamy facial scrub that gently exfoliates and removes excess oils, helping to control blemishes to leave the skin smooth. 

Made with ground tea tree leaves, beeswax, and pro-vitamin B5 deep cleanse and condition for clearer, softer skin.

Foxy Frangipani Says:
Nett Wt: 100ml
Texture: Cream with granules
Scent: Strong tea tree
Colour: Green
Price: RM42 (for 2pcs)
Made in: UK

I bought this during one of The Body Shop sale. Last minute score :)
And I'm so glad I got these!

The granules are coarse enough for a good scrub, yet not abrasive to the skin. I love the smell of tea tree oil (I'm a fan). After each scrub, my skin feels smooth and clean; but can be a little drying if not followed by toner / moisturizer.

I use this every other day, instead of twice a week as advised ;)
Some nights, I leave this on a few mins longer as a mask. It does a great job in keeping zits at bay.

Definitely will repurchase, only if they still produce this...

Lakme K.THERAPY Active Prevention Shampoo  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in

Lakme Says:
Revitalising shampoo which prevents hair loss. 
Provides energy and vigour to devitalised hair.

Foxy Frangipani Says:
Nett Wt: 250ml
Texture: Cream
Scent: Fresh
Colour: White

Pictured here is the old packaging. Bought this from Shins when I was suffering quite bad hair loss. This resided in my gym bag so I only used it about 3 times a week.

Lathers very well, scent was pleasant.
Does a decent job in cleansing my scalp, but not drying.

Didn't notice any obvious improvement in terms of preventing hair loss; but since it is no longer a problem for me I guess it helped a little.

No plans of repurchasing this as I already found my HG Shampoo :)

L'Oreal De-maq Expert Cashmere Milk Expert Make-Up Remover  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

Loreal Says:
L'Oreal Paris Dermo-Expertise; De-maq Expert Cashmere Milk Complete Make-up Remover is ideal for women who find water too harsh on their skin. It achieves maximum cleansing for the face and eyes while restoring skin's moisture levels. 

The soft formula is two times more concentrated in active cleansing and nourishing ingredients than a classic cleansing milk.

Foxy Frangipani Says:
Nett Wt: 100ml
Texture: Cream
Scent: Sweet milk
Colour: White
Price: RM10 (I got this at a warehouse sale) I think RP is RM27

I don't quite like this as I feel it leaves behind an oily layer on my skin after rinsing it off. A little too rich for my liking. I prefer the Elixir Concentrate.

In terms of cleansing power, it does an okay job in removing light foundation. However for eye makeup - it tends to blur my vision, hence my dislike for this.

Watson’s Exfoliating Body Wash Kiwi Extract

Watson Says:

Foxy Frangipani Says:

Nett Wt: 400ml
Texture: Runny jelly with fine beads
Scent: Fresh fruity
Colour: Green

When this went on sale, I paid RM8.90 for 2.
Nice for everyday polish, but I find the beads not coarse enough for a proper scrub. Not bad for light exfoliation. But not quite for the pits, knees and elbows.

On wet skin, it feels too slippery, on dry skin it does not feel good either.
Just damp skin would be ideal. Similar to the Orange Extract one.

Smell is refreshing, and it washes off easily. The Husband uses this regularly, he seems to love this. I prefer scrubs from The Body Shop.

Foxy Frangipani Says:

Nett Wt: 30ml
Texture: Thick lotion
Scent: Plastic!
Colour: Light beige
Price: I think RM89.90 (but I bought this at a much lower price)

Sigh, another product that I'm happy to toss! Total waste of money :(
What really puts me off was the smell! Strong plastic smell, I really dislike it!

What was worse.. it did nothing to shrink pore size. Easy to spread and apply, but difficult to live with the smell, though it did not last long. But still...
And look at the long list of ingredients. @_@

Even a slight help in the oil control department won't make me repurchase this..

Enough said - toss!

Scent: A little citrusy
Made in: US

This is part of the birthday gifts from Burt's Bees. I took it along for my Taiwan trip. On most days except for the day I took my wedding pictures, I wasn't wearing any makeup. Just usual skincare and sunscreen. So I guess this is good enough to melt the dirt.

Unfortunately I didn't love this cleansing cream. It gave me a cooling, tingling sensation each use - in a way I didn't like. Felt a little burning sensation on my upper lip (nope, I did not shave nor have any blemishes there).

This didn't lather at all. But as cream, I didn't expect it to lather anyway. It felt quite drying on my oily combination skin... yet I didn't feel it was enough to really clean my skin; and would follow up with foam cleanser.

Its a shame.. I find that Burt's Bees facial products don't quite work for me..
The probably good thing is that, it is 98.8% natural?

I forgot how much was this serum.. probably about RM100-ish?
Don't have much to say about this, as I wasn't impressed.

Watery in texture, 2 drops are not enough for me. I usually use 4-6 to cover my neck as well. Absorption was pretty good. But I don't find this moisturizing, nor did I detect any radiance on my skin.

My skin condition remained the same throughout the use.. not worse, not better. I'm just glad I finished the bottle..

I use this as a day time serum. Didn't detect any scent. Seems that it contains alcohol, but it doesn't sting nor cause any irritation to my skin.

Spreads easily, and absorbs pretty quick. Leaves a cooling feel.
Okay for light hydration, my skin does not feel tight at the end of the day.

However it does not reduce pore size. It does plump up the skin and give a nice healthy glow. Nothing significant for those over 30s, I think.

Is Vichy Bidding Us Farewell?  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

After being "absent" from the Internet scene for almost two months (there was the wedding, then the honeymoon, and then the failed internet connection which resulted in me cancelling the service); this piece of news is a shocker (like a welcome back boo-yah Vichy is leaving!)

I mean like, realllly? Why? 
Vichy is a brand that I don't dislike (except the price maybe, I have to admit, they are not too expensive though). I've tried a couple of their products so far, and I quite like them. There was always a wish list - I'll get them once I finish something (fat chance hah!) / when there is a sale going on (10-20% is no fun) etc.

Never really get to do a big haul. Now they are leaving?
Best part is, things are going at Buy 1 Free 1 now! It is true! News was that by March next year, they'll be kapoofed for good. But check their shelves now - I think they'd be gone by Christmas!

Most of the shelves are almost empty, and some left are single unit only. You don't get to buy at 50% off.
No luck at Queensbay. But the pharmacist was really nice, she called Gurney to see if they have what I want, and reserved a set for me :)

I really only wanted Bi-White Reveal Double Corrective Whitening Emulsion. When I entered Watsons and Guardian, look at what I came out with >_<

I am trying to console myself - it is Xmas, it is ok to pamper myself, bonus is near, Heck, just buy and make myself happy. The Husband wasn't helping either.. he actually got me into buying the sunscreen and the Liftactiv (for him!!) :P

~ Purete Thermale 3 in 1 One Step Cleanser RM64.90
~ Bi-White Reveal Double Corrective Whitening Emulsion RM109
~ Normaderm Night Anti Imperfection + Rejuvenating Care RM49
~ UV Pro Secure SPF 50 PA+++ (Anti Dullness and Evening Effect)
~ Liftactiv CxP RM149
~ Aqualia Thermal  Fortifying and Soothing 24Hr Hydrating Care

All 12 for about RM500++. I guess it isn't too bad eh? :D

** Out of curiousity I did asked if she knows why are they pulling out from Malaysia. Seems that there was some conflict with the importer. That could possibly mean, some months later, some other importer might just bring Vichy back to Malaysia. So bye Vichy; for now. Come back soon!

Sabai-arom Jasmine & Aloe Vera Face Mask  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

Sabai-arom Says:
(for all skin types)

Don`t you love how fresh you feel after a catnap? Don`t you want your complexion to mirror such heavenly freshness, too? We do – that`s why we concocted this purely natural recipe for you.

Apart from moisturizing Aloe Vera, long used by Thais to soothe tired and sore skin, we added the blissful scent of Jasmine. Thais find the smell of this tiny white flower both relxing and reviving.

In order to take advantage of its sensory benefits, our ancestors sprinkled Jasmine flowers in their bath and drinking water, even today many people hang fresh garlands on the rear – view mirrors in their cars for the same purpose.

Try our clay mask and witness your face come alive with a fresh, healthy glow – didn`t think it was possible to literally glow, did you? And in less time than your catnap, too.

How to stay pretty:
Apply an even layer onto your clean damp face, avoiding the eye contour. Leave this effective recipe on for 3 to 5 minutes for the nutrients to fully penetrate your skin. Wipe and rinse off.

Foxy Says:
Net: 100g
Price: Roughly about 419 Baht
Texture: Cream 
Scent: Very sweet comforting, like cream with nice hint of jasmine.
Made in: Thailand

What I like most about this is its scent!! Gorgeous jasmine but not overpowering. (I am tempted to try all things Jasmine).

Plus points: doesn't cause breakouts for my skin. Hydrating properties are good. I usually use this in the shower. After cleansing my face, slather on a thick layer and then proceed with shower / scrub routine. About 3-5 mins after that, I rinse off with cold water. 

Easy to remove, does not leave oily residue (dries to clay).

There is nothing I dislike about this, however this is not a miracle product ;)
It does a great job in hydrating plus smells awesome, that's about all.

Foxy Frangipani Says:

Nett Wt: 180g
Color: White
Price: n/a

I'll be first to admit that I pay the least attention to hair care all the while. Even when I suffered hair loss due to work stress some years back, my diligence is still not comparable to skincare.

So on normal circumstances, I wouldn't be spending on hair treatments.
Just that I got this for free hehehe. It is part of the Goodie Bag items, complimentary from The Hotel where my wedding was held.

It was only on my wedding day that I realized just how much hairspray was needed to hold the little up do. Lets just put it this way - never in my entire life have I had to use so much hairspray. It held my mane in place for a good 16 hours! And that means, washing it off was a real real pain!

And I thought that was it... then I flew to Taipei to have my wedding shots taken. Another round of hairspray attack. This time it was worse, as I had 6 different styles. When I washed my hair that night, all I could think off was OMG OMG OMG... another round of hair loss?! I promise I'll be good!

(The Husband commented that my hair looked dry - I've always have oily scalp! So that was bad news)

Then I became so grateful this was gifted to me hehehehe. Because after just one use, I couldn't stop touching my hair :) I'm still not diligent enough to use it daily (I don't think I'll ever come to that level, also I didn't want super oily hair); but twice a week seems  pretty awesome for me.

After shampoo I use about the size of 2 peas and massage into my hair, avoiding the scalp. I leave it anywhere from 3-10 mins, depending on how much time I have in the shower. Even 3 mins did wonders for me.

Rinse with cold water, and air-dry. Hair looks much healthier, glossy even.
Best of all, I don't have to worry about dry hair (I wash my hair daily, sometimes with deep cleansing shampoo).

Definitely opportunity for re-purchase :)

Elizabeth Arden Sheer White Restoring Night Cream  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

Donkey years ago (2009 heee) I got this during the Loreal Warehouse. I was excited trying out this night cream for about 1-2 weeks until... until I started to really dislike it. Then I passed it to my mom and forgot about this product.

Why now? Because the box is still lying around my desk... and I seriously needed to spring clean (again) haha.

Anyway, this cream was lightly fragranced, like flowery powder. Which I quite like. Texture wise, light cream. It is supposed to be lightweight. So first week was ok.. probably my skin was adjusting to new product.

But ughh no. Turns out too heavy for my skin. Totally clogged my skin and gave me bumps. And adding to the discomfort was the o-i-l-y film it left on my face :(

So no firming property, no brightening effect and certainly no radiant skin for me.

But my mom loved it. Her skin really appeared fresh and dewy, and only very little were used each time.

Price: RM62
Texture: Light Cream
Nett Wt: 50ml

Kiss Me Sunkiller Baby Milk SPF38+ PA+++

Another sunscreen from Kiss Me which I really like. There is really nothing that I dislike about this sunscreen. It is as good as Kose's; and I love that it is so affordable, at RM29.90! Add a little patience for sale, and I could probably get another 10-15% off!

Came in plastic tube with screw top, does not leak. Small enough to pop it into handbag for those who prefer to re-apply midday.

No white cast! :D Like like like!

The runny texture allowed me to spread the product comfortably to cover my entire face and neck. Did not make my skin oily.

It did last me about 3 months or so. Did not cause me breakouts or gave me irritation. Would repurchase this without hesitation.

Kiehl's Says:
Inspired by our original, beloved Ultra Facial Moisturizer, this 24-hour, light-textured daily hydrator leaves skin comfortable and visibly well-balanced, particularly in harsh weather conditions. 

Our formula is made with Antarcticine–a Glycoprotein extracted from microorganisms sourced from sea glaciers and notable for an ability to protect skin from cold temperatures–as well as Imperata Cylindrica, a plant indigenous to the Australian desert which possesses superb water retention properties in dry conditions. 

Our unique combination of ingredients helps reduce moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air. With continuous water replenishment throughout the day, skin is smooth, healthy-looking, and "moisture-even."

Kiehl’s was honored to lend support and protection from the elements to the heroic team of the “Greenland First Ascent” expedition. The six explorers completed the first-ever ascent of Greenland’s ice covered peaks on May 30th 2005.
Foxy Frangipani Says:

Texture: Cream, light
Scent: None
Nett Wt: 50ml
Color: White
Price: RM100

Can I just sum it up as - I really really like this one!?
Because it made my skin feels like it had a good drink of water. Nicely plumped up. I mostly used it as a day cream.

Rubbed between my palms to warm it up a little. And then spread onto my face and neck. Even with the harsh air cond and scorching hot sun, my skin did not feel tight. I did find it a bit oily if I did not top up with loose powder in the morning.

What I didn't really like:
- It comes in a jar! I'm not in favour of dipping my fingers in or washing my spatula before and after each scoop! Boo..

- Price tag? Hmmm well RM100 isn't thaaaat bad, but any cheaper won't hurt haha.

Daiso Compression Socks  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

2 weeks ago, while I was in KL for my books haul; I stopped by Daiso at One Utama to check out whats newer than those in Penang.

Hmm compression socks for RM5?! I had to try this!
I mostly wear this at night for about 4 hours, removing them just before bedtime. The size M-L fits just nice, snug but not too tight it becomes painful.

I don't know about the increase in blood circulation or other health benefits. But what I do realize when I check myself out at the mirror ( yes I do that often... you know you do it too :P ), my calves look lean and not bloatish (if you know what I mean).

So yay! This is a winner for me :D

What are Compression Socks?
WiseGeek Says:

Compression socks are specialized hosiery items designed to provide extra support and increase blood circulation. The main purpose of compression socks is to provide graduated pressure on the lower leg and foot. 

The key to understanding compression socks lies in their graduated pressure application. Throughout an average day, the body pumps blood to all of the extremities as equally as it can. Gravity, however, often causes blood to pool in the lower legs and feet, causing circulatory problems such as edema, phlebitis and thrombosis. 

At the very least, all of this blood pooling can cause fatigue and leg cramps. Elevating the legs and feet may alleviate the pain temporarily, but it often returns after a few hours of constant standing or walking.

This is where the use of compression socks can be extremely beneficial. Compression socks use stronger elastics such as rubber or spandex to create significant pressure on the legs, ankles and feet. By compressing the surface veins, arteries and muscles, the circulating blood is forced through narrower channels. 

The arterial pressure is increased, causing more blood to return to the heart and less blood to pool in the feet. Compression socks are tightest at the ankles, gradually become less constrictive towards the knees. The soles of compression socks may be heavily padded for better shock absorption.

The Body Shop Wild Cherry Body Scrub

Foxy Frangipani Says:
Texture: Jam like, with seed and tiny granules
Scent: Deep sweet cherries
Nett Wt: 200ml
Color: Raspberry
Price: RM59.90 (I got this at 70% off)
Made in: UK

One of my first few uses, I felt a lil confused. This scrub has a very deep sweet smell. Almost like cough syrup. But after a few more uses, I thought it smelled rather pleasant! Left my skin lightly scented after each shower.

For less than RM20 (sale) I'd say I'd be re-purchasing this. For full price? Nah, not really.

Its tiny granules (crushed walnut shell) with kiwi seeds, did a great job as a scrub. On damp skin, I use a plastic ice cream spoon to scoop some product; and then rub lightly on my skin. Not to be used on face.

As a deodorant / anti-perspirant user, scrubbing the pits daily is a must for me. I dislike the rubbery residue when using anti-perspirant. And this scrub did a fabulous job in removing those residues.

The Body Shop Says:
