Early Xmas Treat  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in

Xmas is a month away,  but I couldn't resist this treat. Not when it can be mine for RM 33 :)

I'm particularly interested in the Evening Primrose Eye Cream. 10ml is almost full size and totally worth it.

The other 4 x 20ml are:
- Pomegranate White Tea Facial Cleanser
- Pomegranate Scrub
- Pomegranate Mask
- Pomegranate Cream-Gel

Yoga - For Beauty

Had been sick for quite a long time, about 2-3 months of feeling weak now. Probably caused by lack of rest, also my low BP had always made me lethargic..

I skipped a lot of workout as all I wanted was to lie down and sleep. Went to doctors and they have no idea what was causing this tiredness :S

Needless to say, I have also been abandoning my skincare routine. The most diligent of me was to wash my face at the end of each day. On most days, I skip serums and cream... and; sunscreen too (!!!!) I know, *screams*

Its amazing that after months of abandonment, my skin did not turn 30 years  older. Signs of tiredness yes, but everything else remains pretty much the same. Most probably due to healthy food intake..

Anyway, during my down times, I have been reading up alot on articles related to health. I find below quite interesting, and do-able. For me; at a slow pace.
Sharing this out and also for my own reference :)

Through the following Asana the facial skin becomes soft, wrinkle free, and starts glowing with radiance. The black circles under the eyes vanish and the cheeks become pink. The face is filled with a magnetic attraction.
Stand straight and move your feet apart, about one foot. First cover your face with your palms and breathe fast and deep, ten times.

Next rub the face, the eyes, the forehead with your fingers and breathe fast ten times. By this exercise the face will start glowing with an attraction.

After this rub the skin of the whole face, starting from the chin to the fore-head. Keep breathing deeply. By this exercise the wrinkles on the face shall vanish and it shall acquire a healthy look.

By performing the following Aasan a corpulent neck can be given a beautiful shape and all the wrinkles on it shall disappear.
Place your feet firmly on the ground. Keep your body erect and without moving your shoulders try to turn your neck to the left as much as you can. Then move the neck to the right. Repeat this exercise ten times.
Next turn the neck to the right with a jerk ten times; then to the left, also ten times. After this turn your face up and your head backwards and then bend it forwards, trying to touch the chest with your chin.

Repeat this exercise three times.
Through these exercises your neck shall become rid of extra fat and will become shapely.

Well formed breasts add to the beauty of a woman. Through this exercise the breasts can be moulded into an attractive shape.
Stand straight and move your feet about one foot apart. Place your hands on your waist and inhale as deeply as you can and then exhale forcefully. Repeat this breathing exercise at least sixty times.
By performing this exercise regularly, within a week the breasts start becoming prominent and gain a well moulded shape.

Through this exercise the extra fat of the stomach gets dissolved. Women who have gained weight due to over-eating and pregnancy can try these exercises.
Stand straight with the feet placed about one foot apart. Then bend forward and touch your toes with your fingertips, without bending your knees. You may not succeed in performing this exercise in the first attempt but try to bend as much as you can and in a few days you shall be able to touch your toes. One should remember not to bend the knees.
When you succeed in performing this exercise, next try to touch your left toe with your right hand & your right toe with the left hand without bending the knees.

After you are able to perform the second exercise as well, try to bend forward so as to touch the floor with the palms of your hands.
Through this exercise all fat around the stomach region disappears.

Until the waist of a woman is slim; free from excess fat, all her beauty seems to be in vain. Through this Asana the waist can be given an attractive shape.
Place the feet about one foot apart and spread the hands sideways in the level of the shoulders, parallel to the ground. Then turn your upper torso to the left from your waist upwards, so that you can easily look behind.

The feet should remain firmly on the ground. Then come back to the starting position and turn to your right. Repeat ten times.
In the next step turn to your left with a jerk and then to your right. Repeat twenty times.
Then place the hands on the waist and bend forwards so that your face touches your thighs. Repeat twenty times.
Thus by performing these exercises, your waist shall become free of all excess fat and will become beautiful; shapely.

The thighs should neither be too fat and nor should they be too slim. By this exercise the thighs, gain a well proportioned shape.
Stand straight and spread your hands forward parallel to the ground. Then bend your knees and go into a posture as if you are sitting on a chair.

Your thighs should be parallel to the ground and the back should be erect. Try to remain in this position for 3 minutes. This posture is similar to "Horse Trance" which is also practised by the martial arts experts.
After performing this exercise for a few days, carry it out eight to ten times daily. Through this exercise your thighs shall get rid of excess fat and will gain a well proportioned shape.

This is a very important but simple exercise which the texts on Yoga have called the Shavasan.
Lie down on the floor without moving any limb. Leave your body loose and close your eyes. Then try to free the mind of all thoughts, worries and tensions.
This Aasan should be performed for fifteen minutes daily. One shall attain peace of mind and tranquility through it.
By performing all the Aasans one not only gains a beautiful attractive face but also a well balanced physique.

Nature Republic Waiting of 6 Years Red Ginseng Cleansing Cream  

Posted by: Foxy Frangipani in ,

Okay, this is a long and weird name for a product. Don't remember if I got this from my Korea trip or the local outlet during sales..

Texture: Cream
Colour: Very light pink
Scent: Mild powdery
Nett Wt: 150ml
Price: definitely below RM20

I use up cleansing cream way faster than cleansing oil; this tube lasted me about 2 months. I love the creamy texture but don't leave an oily residue. Not overly rich.

Whether or not I wear BB Cream during the day, I would still use this as first step in cleansing. It emulsifies just the way I like it upon massage with water. Easily rinses off.

Melts away makeup - yes, beautifully.
Moisturises - yes too. Didn't feel dry or tight.
Gives nutrition to skin - hmmm I don't know. Is cleansing cream supposed to nourish??

I wouldn't mind buying again; but I just notice that mineral oil is listed first.. hmm maybe not then.
