Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner

The Butterfly Project collaborated with Natta Cosme to bring us bloggers the opportunity to review Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Toner. Lucky me, I was one of the lucky chosen ones to receive the toner to try it out myself!

However, a slight mishap happened.

Butterfly Project's FB page posted how our parcel will look like.
Saw that Natta Cosme box, with the toner and some goodies?

But this was how mine looked like -.-
Just a package with a toner.

I emailed Natta Cosme about it and according to them, Natta Cosme would usually deliver all their parcels in a box and that somehow something must have went wrong. They got back to me pretty fast and promised to deliver another package with the rest of my missing goodies.

One day later, I received another package and this time all the goodies were in it.
It's a shame that I couldn't receive the Natta Cosme's lace box though. Was actually looking forward to that.
But anyhow....

Here's the complete package!

Kind of them to include a 'sorry' rose for my mishap!

 Some card information for us.

A very unique 'capsule' which acts like a fortune cookie.

What's in it?

Yeap, I think that's right because cotton pad can be used to remove impurities which our cleanser couldn't clean entirely.

Here's the cotton pads in a pretty package!

The Lily Bell Lilian Cotton.

But here's the star of the package!

A full size 355ml Thayers Toner.

The toner is so clear that you can see what's written behind the front sticker!

Thayers Witch Hazel with Aloe Vera Formula Astringents and Alcohol-Free Toner contains natural treatments that cleanses, tones and soothes your skin. Witch Hazel is made of non-distilled extract from the Witch Hazel shrub maintaining the highest levels of therapeutic tannins. 
These natural elixirs have been a fixture in medicine cabinets for generations.

Witch Hazel helps to tighten pores and to smooth and beautify skin without drying.

-Propylene Glycol-Free
-Un-Distilled Witch Hazel(with all the beneficial natural tannins)

Now, let's put it to test.

It is covered so make sure to peel off the foil.

Wet the cotton pad with the toner. 
Just a few drops is fine.

Gently pat on face till clean.
It smells like rose and my mom that came near me asked me what product I was using that smells so nice ^^

You will realise the cotton pad will turn a bit brownish due to the residual dirt that was not cleansed properly.
I also realised that my face felt a bit of a warm sensation after application. Not sure why because it is alcohol free but probably the water contact on skin. It's probably a feeling that it is working its magic on me =)

One thing to be careful of is that since the toner is watery, try not to squeeze so hard when pouring on the cotton pad. It's a bit runny, so just a slight tilt will do.

After application, my skin felt refreshed and doubly cleansed!
355ml toner costs RM 55.
But Natta Cosme is now selling it at a discounted price of RM45!

And the package contained a sample...

What is your choice of product after toner?
Hmm...to be the next project *excited*

Natta Cosme is an online shop which sells many beauty products!
You should check them out. Their service is efficient and they carry quite a number of brands.
Readers, if you purchase above RM50, key in 'LOVEBT' for an RM5 discount. (valid til 15/1/2014)

Thank you Natta Cosme!
And of course, not forgetting the ever exciting Butterfly Project which comes up with awesome projects every now and then =)

120 hours

How's 97 emails on my first day of work? LMAO!

Sooo yes, I think I clocked in an average of 50 hours in my first week, spent 12 hours on the road in a week with rush hour jam, skipped lunches, have very late dinners, spent more money on my parking than my own food, been introduced to so many people that I'm starting to jumble up all of their names or forgetting them all, waking up late all the time(cannot wake up!) and running through the whole of KL finding buildings, places and people. All that in one week! Yes, 5 working days. It's a wonder how much things you can do in 120 hours!

But yeah, do not underestimate a human's capability. Because what happened above was just a gist of what is to come. Others have gone through worst. I shall brace myself.

What I need after a hard day's work? Coming back to unconditional love, a warm shower and enough sleep would totally make the entire day soo much better! hehe

Body Perfect Bust Enhancing Treatment

I'm back at Body Perfect, Sunway Pyramid! Body Perfect has very friendly beauty therapists and when you're there, you're known on a first name basis. When I walked in, I was immediately greeted by name and I felt very welcomed and at home. 

This time it's for my complimentary Cientifico-RF Bust Enhancing Treatment.
Received this during the Breast Cancer Awareness event.
In conjunction with Pink October, Body Perfect wants us to care for our bust!

Of all the body treatments I ever went to, bust treatment is by far my most daring hehe
It's because well, you need to strip half naked for them to do the treatment *closes eyes*
But, it's okay-lah, all girls there only. What I have, they also have hehe
But, if you're the extremely shy type, then hmmm maybe you might want to think twice =)

Changed into a silky navy robe which was so comfy!

Given a pouch as well to put my phone.
It's not that I can't live without it, but important calls were incoming that day and I just had to!
Also, my apologies to the beauty therapist for a short halt during the session as I had an incoming call >.<

Given lemongrass tea which was thirst quenching!

I was given a prior consultation before the start of the treatment.
Since I had not undergone any surgery or what not before and everything was fine, I then proceeded to have my bust measured *ehem*

But my therapist was pretty professional. She did not in any way make me feel uncomfortable. I suppose, she has done this many many times before and there's nothing awkward for her. It's actually not my first time doing a bust treatment so I was a bit braver this time around hehe

This Cientifico-RF Bust Enhancing Treatment uses radio frequency and is to firm and restore the volume of skin structures for fuller, rounder and firmer breasts. It builds collagen, stimulates metabolism and circulation and enhances blood and lymph circulation. Most importantly, it is natural and non invasive!

The treatment just uses a hot metal plate to massage the bust area and the underarm area which are where most of our lymph nodes are located. The therapist will massage the front area and also the back so that there are no fat residue(the spare tyres you see when you wear bra)

A clay mask followed thereafter. The clay mask will harden which is to shape and firm the bust and it's quite warm as well to improve circulation. Overall, it was a pretty pleasant and relaxing experience. The experience I had before elsewhere was pretty invasive with the machine hurting me causing redness. However, at Body Perfect, they like it the natural, non invasive and a painless experience =))

Results after one try? Well, of course nothing so prominent. But I did feel a certain firmness which means it had improved my skin's elasticity to prevent ageing. Besides that, all the massage around the bust area will definitely improve my blood and lymph circulation. But I'm most happy that it was a rather relaxing experience. So, ladies, really nothing to be shy about =)

The Cientifico-RF Bust Enhancing Treatment is worth RM420 but call up Body Perfect for promotions!

I'm very much into colour blocking these days. You know how office wears are? They can be quite monotonous but we could totally mix it up with colour blocking.

Diane Kruger is spotted wearing a colour blocking Prabal Gurung gown. The fitted bodice with a flare structured skirt fits her perfectly! Coupled with that white shoes, it doesn't look too monotonous with just black and white as a splash of red added the right colour balance to this look!

Escape Plan

If you are a fan of the series Prison Break starring Wentworth Miller, you might like this movie!
And of course, if you're an old timer and a fan of two blockbuster stars, Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, you must watch this movie.

Ray Breslin(Stallone) is an expert in breaking out of prisons. He has broken out of 14 prisons and owns a security firm to make sure prisons are escape proof. However, his latest assignment landed him in big trouble. The prison he was supposed to break out from was far beyond his usual assignments. But not to worry, he had his friend (Schwarzenegger) to help him out. Together they hatched a plan to escape free.

It was quite an entertaining movie. A lot of planning and action and some humour here and there. That two old men could still fight in action scenes, running, climbing; stuffs that sometimes we youngsters find it hard to do LMAO!

Of course, it's no where near prison break because this is only a 2 hour movie. But still, it was worth a watch!

My rating: 3 and a half stars

Malu Wilz

Malu Wilz is a German brand that has been in Malaysia for quite some time, but you probably haven't heard of it because it's not sold off the counter. It is sold exclusively for professional beauty salons and beauty institutes.

An event was held to introduce Malu Wilz to the media. It was divided into two sessions. The first was about make up while the second was about skincare.

They have a wide make up range!

Gorgeous colour palette!

Ms Claudia, the Managing Director of Malu Wilz for about 10 years gave us an insight about the brand.
Malu Wilz has a full range of skin care and colour cosmetics. 
The brand's HQ is situated in Munich, Germany.
In the international market, Malu Wilz has 30 over partners worldwide.

Their latest cosmetic range is the Pastel Garden!

Very pretty, pastel girly collection =)
It represents the colour of flowers! Spring make up!!


Malu Wilz's trainer and seminar director, Ms Jutta was the make up artist for the day. She demonstrated the use of the products and the techniques in applying them.

Then there was a catwalk presentation.
All the models were made up using Malu Wilz's makeup products.
It was the highlight of the event with quite an elaborate presentation.

My favourite among all! Very sweet look ^^

All five models were made up differently from bridal to morning makeup to night party look.
Nonetheless, all were gorgeous!

We had a tea break in between and came back for the second session.

We were introduced to the skincare range and the newest active ingredient- Hyaluronic Max3
The Max3 effect is created by three different active hyaluronic acids based on the latest research. It quenches your skin's thirst leaving it toned and fresh right away. These hydrating ingredients support the skin's natural water reservoir.

The Hyaluronic Max3 ampoule improves the appearance of the skin in just a few minutes. Specially encapsulated hyaluronic acid penetrates deep into the skin, where it stays for up to 12 hours, delivering moisture right where it needed.

It is quite dense but easily absorbed into the skin, leaving skin silky smooth.
Smells great as well and does not leave a sticky feeling.
Since it is concentrated, it is best used in the evening/night before sleep.
This actually acts like a pre serum, so it must be coupled with a cream.

The Max3 effect range has two types of cream which are Cream Soft and Cream Rich.
They provide long lasting moisture to the skin.
The combination of both the cream and the ampoule really left my hands feeling velvety and soft immediately =)

The beauty flash spray also contains the active ingredient of Hyaluronic Max3.
It acts as a setting spray or for skincare and can be used as a single product by itself.
It contains avocado oil. The oil phase of this two-phase spray moisturises the skin leaving it soft and supple.

It is watery and just pat on your skin leaving it to dry.

Malu Wilz have their very own skincare mask as well!
They have everything a girl needs!
