Nature Republic EXO Nature & Hand Cream (Honey)

0.8L (Point Eight Liter) is a type of global social commerce where you can experience the products you love before you buy them, from anywhere around the world. There's been tons of giveaway on facebook & instagram by 0.8L from different countries including Malaysia, which I'd recently won this limited edition Nature Republic EXO Nature & Hand Cream in Honey.


For those who are a big fan of EXO, seeing their favourite idol face on the packaging of a hand cream would probably made them want to purchase this. There's even signature on it, so this can be considered as collectables too since they're limited edition, lol.


This hand cream comes in a 30ml tube, it's mini size packaging makes it easy to fit inside my small handbag. It has a sturdy packaging, with a screw on lid, so this will not spill easily inside your bag.


Nature Republic EXO Nature & Hand Cream has a thick, creamy, buttery texture that works really well in keeping my skin soft and well moisturized. Though it might seem a little heavy & thick, it actually absorbs fast into my skin without leaving any filmy sticky feeling.


The first thing I'd noticed after trying this on is it's sweet honey scent! It smells sweet & powdery, not too overpowering at all. For those who are not too fond of heavy floral & fruity scent, this may just be the perfect hand cream for you!

This limited edition Nature Republic EXO Nature & Hand Cream are sold in a set box which comprises 6 different flavour of hand cream. If you're interested in this, do check out your nearest Nature Republic store or you can even get from online store ^.^

The Burger Bakar Borneo, Alam Mesra

The Burger Bakar Borneo located at Alam Mesra is a restaurant that serves grilled burgers besides serving a variety of Asian & Western cuisines.

We arrived at Alam Mesra around 8pm and immediately noticed how quiet it is during night time. It was a stark contrast to the hectic day we'd usually experienced.

The Burger Bakar Borneo has a really cozy vibe to it. I really love their retro, old school deco. It has an inviting, laid back ambience.


After browsing throught their extensive menu, we decided to order these...

Beef Burger Bakar with Cheesy Wedges & Fries

Their beef burger is simply delicious! It's super juicy & tender.


Watermelon for Dessert



Fried Rice with Sunny Side Up Egg & Cheesy Chicken Burger Bakar

I didn't know this  menu comes with a burger patty. I'd just randomly said chicken when the waiter ask me what's my choice of meat, lolz. Usually I'm not a fan of chicken burger as they taste a bit bland compared to beef burger, but this chicken patty did taste a little different. It's tender, flavourful & the cheesy mayo sauce makes it even better.

However I didn't love their fried rice. It taste a little bit bland to me.


Mango Juice & Kedondong Juice

Instead of ordering soda, we decided to try out these flavourful Mango Juice & Kedondong Juice, which turned out to be milkshakes instead of the usual blended juice. 


If you love hanging out in a restaurant with a cozy ambience or if you're a big burger fan, do check out The Burger Bakar Borneo at Alam Mesra !

The Chubs Grill, Karamunsing Capital

It's been a while since I last visited The Chubs Grill at Karamunsing Capital. Last saturday, me & Irene decided to have our lunch there since we're both craving for some lamb chops. But unfortunately lamb chops are only available for booking 3 days prior our visit, lolz.


So instead of having lamb chops for lunch, we have these delicious porky dish instead.

Pork Meatball Pizza, with super crispy crust and extra load of cheese on top of it. The pork meatballs are really tender and there's a generous amount of toppings for the pizza.


The Chubs Grill's Grilled Pork Belly is super delicious! It's super juicy and tender and has a mouth watering aroma. Yummy!


Iced Blended Mango Juice. Tasty & refreshing!


Sour Plum Juice. The usual taste of Kit Chai Ping, a wonderful thirst quencher! lol


Overall this is a great restaurant to visit if you love western style cuisine and a pork lover!

Innisfree Volcanic Range

Favful is a virtual beauty advisory platform that allows users to make reviews on various kinds of beauty care, thus providing all the information there is in choosing the perfect skincare. In return of writing an honest review on this site, users are able to accumulate points which can be use to redeem various kinds of beauty products.

A few weeks back, I'd redeemed these 2 products from Innisfree Volcanic Skincare range.


Jeju Volcanic Black Head Balm Out

Description :
1. Clears the nose free of blackheads.
The balm melts as you roll it onto the skin, and dissolves the blackheads, clearing your skin.

2. Washable-melting type
The washable-type balm makes it easy to use, with fresh finish for oily skin.

3. Jeju volcanic cluster with strong sebum absorption
This precious nature oriented Jeju volcanic clusters are stronger than technology and red clay in skin clearing from the pores.


I'd always had some problems getting rid of those pesky whiteheads and blackheads on my face, especially on my nose region. Everytime I thought I'd gotten rid of them for good, they always comes back, lol. So I need an intensive skincare routine that will help me to combat this problem.


This looks a lot like the makeup balm that I'd used before in covering up my pores. It's milky white and feels very oily. I have combination skin which tends to become oily at times, massaging oil on oily skin seems to be a bad idea, but this actually helps in melting off some of my blackheads. 

After massaging this a few minutes on my face and cleansing off my face, I'd noticed lesser blackheads on my nose, though some of the stubborn blackheads remains. If you're not a big fan of using pore strips, do give this a try as it works gentler on skin, the only downside is you'll need to massage this for more than 5 minutes to see it's magic on your skin.


Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask

1. Wash away pore-clogging impurities with Jeju volcanic scoria!
2. Volcanic scoria is a pure, and fairly rare, ingredient formed from lava as it cools after a volcanic eruption.
3. It has a powerful sebum-absorbing capacity and washes away impurities while moisturizing skin, leaving it cleaner and healthier than ever before.


This is the latest addition to the widely popular Jeju Volcanic skin care range. It contains Jeju volcanic scoria, which works in  geting rid of all the sebum, gunks and dirts on our skin. It comes with a pump dispenser which makes it more hygienic than Volcanic Pore Clay Mask which comes in a jar. 

The texture of this mask is quite light and creamy, it doesn't take too long for it to dry on my skin. Usually I'd apply it for 10-15 minutes on my skin before rinsing it off. Overall it works really well in getting rid of all the oily-ness of my skin, some of my whiteheads were gone too. I was expecting this to be quite drying on my skin, but instead it feels more softer and moisturized.. So if you're in need of a deep purifying mask and feels that clay mask leaves your skin a bit too dry, do try this instead!

LOVEISDERMA Skincare

A month ago, I received these lovely LOVEISDERMA skincare products from a friend who was abroad in Taiwan. I was quite interested in testing these out as prior to this, I'd always had some positive experience trying out Taiwanese skincare. After 4 weeks of trying out LOVEISDERMA products, here's an honest review on a few of their bestseller  ^.^

LOVEISDERMA Hydramax Serum

Description :

This moisture-enhancing gel incorporates high concentration of hyaluronic acid (the body's natural hydrator) and vitamin B5 that can be readily absorbed.  It increases moisture retention and hydration to the skin with a lifting, firming, and tightening effect. Replenishes nutrients the skin needs to feel smooth and appear younger, while it maintains an essential moisture-level barrier against the environment. Hyaluronic Acid binds moisture to the skin and helps it retain moisture. Pantothenic Acid strengthens the skin and heals damaged tissue. Your skin will feel visibly softer and toned. Ideal for all skin types.


LOVEISDERMA Hydramax Serum  provides hydration without adding any greasiness to the skin. I love the packaging for this serum, the glass bottle with the dropper makes it easier to estimate how much I was going to use for my whole face and neck.


This serum has a watery texture, it absorbs fast into my skin and I didn't need to wait too long before applying my sunblock. It keeps my skin feeling smooth and hydrated, without any tingly dryness effect. Overall I love how this serum keeps my skin feeling hydrated without adding any oiliness to my combination skin.
 

Another plus side is this serum doesn't caused any flare ups on my sensitive skin. My skin appears much healthier after 4 weeks of trying this out.


For those who are not familiar with the effects of Hyaluronic Acid in their skincare, Hyaluronic Acid works in keeping skin plump, hydrated and younger looking. So if you're still looking for that precious fountain of youth, do give this a try!



LOVEISDERMA UV Shield SPF 50

Description :

Long-wearing and broad-spectrum sunscreen provides a high level of protection against the burning and aging effects of UVA and UVB rays. Ultra-light and fast-absorbing sunscreen is formulated with both Vitamin E and green tea to nourish skin and prevent brown spots from forming. Apply cream liberally all over exposed areas at least 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply as often as needed. Ideal for all skin types.  


I have always love wearing sunblock, it's one of my beauty regime that I never skip. My skin are prone to freckles and pigmentation, so I really do need to apply sunblock to keep them at bay. 


This product contains Titanium Dioxide, which is famous for causing white cast effect on skin. But this creamy sunblock does nothing of that sort, it comes in nude colour that makes my skin looks flawless and evenly smooth.



Before & after using LOVEISDERMA UV Shield SPF 50


This also works really well as a makeup base. Not only does this protects my skin from harmful UVA/UVB sun rays, it also gives my uneven skin a healthy glow.



LOVEISDERMA B5 hydraboost Gelly Masque
  
Description :

This gel-based masque is enhanced with a unique complex containing most effective hydrators which helps increase skin's hydration level and retain its natural protective barrier to prevent moisture loss. Ideal for use on a variety of skin types which included dry, dehydrated, aging and stressed skin.

How To Use :

Evenly apply a thick layer (approximately 5mm thick) to cleansed skin, avoid contact with eyes and lips. Leave for 20-30 minutes, and then remove excess gel with a spatula and wash off remaining.


This gel-based masque came in a huge 500g sized container. It has it's own spatula for scopping out the gelly masque. It feels cool and refreshing on my skin upon usage. After clearing and rinsing off the excess masque using the spatula, I immediately noticed a brighter, softer & bouncier skin. 


If you're suffering from dry skin, this will benefit your skin greatly as it keeps skin hydration to an optimum level. Even though I have combination skin, my nose region are prone to dryness, but now it no longer feels rough to the touch and I no longer see any skin peeling off around my nose.   



LOVEISDERMA Deep Hydrating Bio Cellulose Mask

Description :

Bio cellulose and premium grade sheet mask retains as much as 100x its dry weight in moisture, treating skin to a generous shower of nutrients and conditioners that hydrate and tone for a silky smooth complexion with dramatically improved texture.

For those who prefer an easier, less fussier way of treating their skin anytime, anywhere. LOVEISDERMA Deep Hydrating Bio Cellulose Mask is the perfect mask for you. It's convenient and less messier. It's main uses are maintaining healthy skin structure and appearance, including preventing moisture loss, restoring smoothness, reducing inflammation, and enhancing skin firmness.


If you're in need of a hydration boost, this is the perfect mask for you. It's gentle on my skin and I didn't experience any redness nor skin irritation after applying this mask.The only thing it left me was soft, bouncier, dewy looking skin ^.^



LOVEISDERMA Intensive A.I

Description :

LOVEISDERMA A.I has created the Skin Support System specifically for your type of skin. Every treatment is Doctor-formulated, highly researched and people-tested for effectiveness.


This cream came with a pump dispenser, which made it more hygienic and easier to use. It's creamy texture doesn't feel oily at all, it's quite light weight and absorbs fast into my skin.



I rarely suffers from redness, unless I stay too long in the sun, but it does feel gentle on my skin. My sensitive skin doesn't suffer any itchiness and dryness after trying this for a while, which tend to happen whenever I encounter skincare that doesn't suit my skin.

 
 
For those who suffers from Rosacea, finding the perfect skincare that are suitable can be quite a challenge. Since this product is made for treating flare-ups, redness and blotchiness, it's definitely worth a try if you're still looking for skincare that treats these annoying skin woes.
