Review: Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser

mood: random
song: circle of life

Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Cleanser comes in a standard squeeze tube. The texture of this more to a whipped formula as it oppose to being a foaming cleanser. It works to dissolves dirt an impurities  while boosting cell turnover.

 The texture of the cleanser.
After my first try, my skin was left with a clean, soft and smooth surface. Not to forget with their rose scent which made me felt super refreshed and calm every time using it.

How to use: Take an appropriate amount and gently spread it over your face. 

The Scent: It has a relaxing rose fragrance that will make you feel as if you are in an aromatherapy spa. 

The Texture: It is a whipped type product that can easily be spread on skin. 

This is one of the few cleansers I have that does not cleanse my face harshly. It is highly recommended to those who are looking for a good cleanser for their delicate dry skin like mine.

Repurchasing: Maybe. Because it is kind of costly for a cleanser to me.

Glow Hotel Penang

mood: random
song: the day we find love (911)

Glow Hotel is located at the heart of Georgetown. An interior's filled with bright colors and pop-arts to summarize the design of this hotel.

The lobby was filled with vibrant color as I stepped in.

This is a Superior Double Room, with 21-sqm, 32" LED TV and a mini bar with complimentary water, electronic safe box, gym, Airport/ Port Transfer Service (with charge), laundry & dry cleaning service (with charge) as well as swimming pool and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi internet access in every room.

A welcome gift ;)

As you can see, everything in this hotel is filled with vibrant colored items ;)

 Complimentary Breakfast for Hotel Guests
The buffet breakfast was a wide spread of mixed Asian and Western cuisine.

The salad bar

Cereal bar

Overall, I find the GLOW Hotel is pretty reasonable with it's convenient location in the middle of Georgetown. The only downside is that it has limited parking spaces in the hotel and also around that area. I would have to drive around that area for five times to get myself a parking space.

Do check out their room rates HERE as they have 4 types of room:

Review: LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask

mood: random
song:little steps

Everheard of the term "BEAUTY SLEEP"? Because, just a few weeks ago, I was introduced to this new LANEIGE Water Sleeping Mask.
This is my very first time experiencing a skin care product that promotes better sleep. First off, this mask i formulated with the latest SLEEP-TOX and MOISTURE-WRAP technology. So this mask not only deliver moisture to the skin but also detox and purifies the skin to offer revitalized and brighter skin. It also contains SLEEPTSCENT technology which will help one fall asleep faster meanwhile making our skin looks better the next day ;)

But, I decided to gave it a try in the end.

So this Water Sleeping Mask by LANEIGE is believed to:
1. Purifies skin during sleep with their SLEEP-TOX technology by keeping our skin in it's optimum condition.
2. The dense beta-glucan moisturizing shield "MOISTURE WRAP" helps skin retain moisture throughout the night.
3. It contains some skin-soothing agents that are gentle on sleeping skin which will help skin to recover overnight.
4. Their aromatic SLEEPSCENT specially developed for Laneige Water Sleeping Mask will allows skin to relax and rest while boosting its ability to regenerate.

I dare to say that this has worked wonders for my skin. I slathered it onto my entire face every-night generously like you would spread butter on toast. *hahaha*
I find this product absorbs pretty quickly in within 5 minutes of application, not sure whether it was because of my super dry skin texture that made it so thirsty. The best part is that it doesn't remain wet and sticky as I would not want it to stained all over my bed-sheets at night.


How to use: Take an appropriate amount and gently spread it over your face. Then go to sleep after the product has been fully absorbed. Wash it off the next morning once you woke up.

The Scent: It has a relaxing fragrance that will fades off over time, so don't worry about overwhelming scent.

The Texture: It is a gel type product that is super lightweight and can easily be spread on skin.

Besides, I got mine from Althea Malaysia for only RM77 and I have to say it is superbly worth it.

Repurchasing: DEFINITELY YES!

Review : Peter Thomas Roth Rose Cucumber Gel Mask

mood: random
song: suki kirai (Rin&Ren)

I  know that a lot of you beauty junkies have already tried this Cucumber Gel Mask from Peter Thomas Roth. So this is one of the mask in the MASK-A-HOLIC KIT set. To be honest, I have some mixed opinions about this one. It pretty gave the same effect as the Rose Stem Cell Mask but just a little less effective on me.

So, this mask claimed to be an "extreme detoxifying hydrator" and the gel helps to soothe, hydrate and detoxify dry, irritated skin with botanical extracts of cucumber, papaya, chamomile, pineapple, orange, lemon and etc...
To me that is a pretty big statement that was claimed by them. So, as usual.. I gave it a try.
AND this is how i feel..
It does hydrate yes as it feels pretty refreshing and soothing. Besides, it did sinks in fast leaving a cooling feeling.

Apparently, this mask is created for treating under eye puffiness and it kinda work on me after a few applications, I noticed that my eye bags and dark circles got a little lighten. And the good news is, you can sleep in this mask by applying a thin layer on and rinse it off the next morning. 

Honestly, I felt that this mask is seriously overpriced for what it does. Because, you can fairly get other hydrating mask in the market with a lower price compared to this one. One of the reason I actually bought the entire set was partially because of this mask but sadly it is the most disappointing one.
