When it comes to soy milk, I guess most of the milk drinker hasn't try any soy milk before or have narrow perception towards soy milk. Even soy milk drinkers face the difficulties of getting soy milk at grocery stores because we don't have lots of options in the current market and it's kinda sad to be honest.

I gotta be honest, I'm the former type of consumer. As one of the luckier ones that has no lactose intolerance issue, I always choose milk before soy. I have ZERO knowledge about soy milk and even though I never try them before, I always have the misconception of soy milk will either taste weird or bland. In my imagination, there is absolutely nothing interesting about soy milk. That's not true.

Being invited to NH SOY exclusive launch by Watson is seriously a LIFE CHANGING experience. When I say life changing, I mean every word I said (or typed in this case). Who knew soy milk could taste so delicious and milky as well as addictive like a cup of yummilicious bubble milk tea that at the same time, provide wholesome goodness to my body and health!

Thanks to this opportunity, I get to try my very first cup of NH SOY drink and am now hooked on this wholesome goodness beverage. A cup of soy milk contains tons of protein that our body needs to build and repair body tissues as well as a type of essential nutrient for both kids and adult. Free from cholesterol and lactose, taking in 25g of soy protein can help lower body cholesterol, increase body's dietary fibre intake without worrying anything about saturated fat.

When more and more consumers are jumping on the bandwagon of healthier protein source intake, I too wish to increase my health in overall when it comes to food and beverages as well as the health of my family member. NH SOY uses ONLY Ecocert organic certified peeled soybeans combined with organic Chia seeds, Basil seeds and purple sweet potato then created two special soy drinks that this market needs badly: NH SOY Seeds and NH SOY Purple.

As an healthier daily beverage option, these benefits can be found in both NH SOY Seeds and NH SOY Purple drinks:
  • rich in Omega Fatty 3 Acids
  • High in minerals and fibre
  • Great source of Vitamin B and C
  • High antioxidants
  • NO artificial flavorings, colourings and preservatives

These goodness aside, NH SOY drinks can be prepares in less than 1 minute! Simply pour THREE scoops of NH SOY powder into room temperature/cold water (strictly no hot water as it will destroy the nutrient of protein itself), shake it and voila! Simpler than ABC or any fuss of preparing yourself a breakfast meal! Totally suits someone who is always on the go and lazy busy as me lolololol. 

Aside from drinking NH SOY drinks just like that, you can level up your soy drink game and make some NH SOY desserts such as ice blended soy drink or soy yogurt! There are live demo on stage during the event of how to prepare simple desserts that satisfy both cravings and nutrients to body using NH SOY drink series. I feel like I can make those too!

Other desserts you can make with NH Soy powder!

When I first took a sip of NH SOY Seeds I was like: what sorcery is in this cup of beverage??? What did I just drink that is so delicious and to my heart's content! I can never stress enough how delicious the drink is that I drank a few cups of NH SOY Seeds and NH SOY Purple right at the event itself! 

As mentioned earlier, NH SOY Seeds has Chia seeds and Basil seeds in it, making the drink itself crunchier than your usual soy milk. It's really like drinking a cup of bubble milk tea, except it is wayyyyyyyyyyy more healthier than that. And the beautiful pastel purple coloured NH SOY Purple that got its colour naturally from purple sweet potato tasted more subtle and smooth, provides nutrient for everyone all day long!

NH SOY drinks are suitable for anyone even breastfeeding mothers and suitable to consumer any time of the day (sounds like I just found the perfect beverage of my life as I always craving for supper). Drink it daily to get daily dose of proteins, nourishment that improves digestive system as well as healthier condition of heart, eyes, bones and muscles!

Get these nutrient-packed NH SOY Seeds and NH SOY Purple exclusively at Watson near you or all hail internet, you can get them deliver to your doorsteps (FREE DELIVERY for purchase over RM100) with just a few clicks on Watson Online Store and mobile app.

One thing I learn in life is to never say never. I wasn't a big fan of cleansing balm, especially after my friend pass me this super hit cleansing balm from Korea that she claims "everyone is using it in Korea and I love it myself too." Hence I tried it and nope, didn't like it. To be honest, I hate it.

And so I thought all cleansing balm are ought to be like that, feels like a greasy film covering each and every of my pores and clogging them with the balm. And that point, I told myself I'm never gonna use any cleansing balm in my life, until I met DUO from Japan, then I had to eat my own words because I'm loving it.

Combining nature, science and beauty, DUO has been awarded with Monde Selection Gold & Silver Awards in these years ( Monde Selection certifies the quality of consumer products with its unique quality awards. Each product is evaluated individually by a Jury of experts ) and also awarded 1st prize in @Cosme website, although not many of us in Malaysia heard of DUO, but it has an astounding sales result which sold more than 10 millions jars since year 2010.

10 freaking million jars! You know those best selling clothes or shoes in Japan are often sold around 2000 - 3000 pieces, hence 10 million jars of these sold really certifies its quality as well as credibility among Japanese users. I am a true believer of math especially when it comes to cosmetics and beauty products, and users rating speaks louder than words hence I'm gonna try DUO The Cleansing Balm in clear and share with you my review. 

I brought this jar of cleansing balm along with me to a short trip recently and I was amazed by it! Because of its 5-in-1 cleansing power, I managed to pack lightly for that trip because I don't need to bring another cleanser for double cleansing anymore. DUO Cleansing Balm suits everyone especially those who has a hectic schedule and needs more time to rest. Its cleansing power combines both makeup removing and cleansing in one. 

How exactly? With its smaller-than-pores nano matrix structure technology, DUO Cleansing Balm "melts" away makeups, dirts and sebum that clogged pores as well as cleanse whatever residue that's left on the skin, leaving skin clean, smooth and moisturised. 

  • KERATIN-CARE (dead skin cells removal) 

Aside from these 5-in-1 functions, DUO Cleansing Balm contains also 31 types of serum ingredients for ageing care as well, which formed the "Treatment" function. Contains 24 kinds of plant extracts, vitamin C, nano collagen, nano hyaluronic acid, nano ceramide etc, these serum ingredients penetrates into skin while cleansing and massaging, giving skin nutrients and moisture.

Simple design on the jar, sturdy and easy to carry around, bringing this jar of cleansing balm while I travel will be mess free guarantee because I don't have to worry it will spilled over inside my bag or luggage. With a small spatula clicked on the lid, scooping out DUO's cleansing balm is easy and hygienic. 

Just one spoon of DUO Cleansing Balm to melt away all my skin problems

And everybody knows the foundation of beauty and skincare is to do proper cleansing each and everyday. Regardless with or without makeup, our skin deserves a proper cleansing every night due to the dead skin cells and environment pollutants that clogged our pores.

Here's to show how easy it is to remove waterproof eyeliner and matter lipstick with DUO's Cleansing Balm:

Makeup on skin

Scoop the balm out using the small spatula that comes in every jar

As you can see, the microparticles start to dissolve when in contact with skin and melts into watery oil form

As you slowly massage the balm on top of them makeup, the balm changes into a smaller-than-pores particles 100nm hence it's can easily remove dirts that's on the surface of skin as well as inside the pores

Just 10-15seconds of massage, it dissolves the waterproof eyeliner as well as matte red lipstick

After this, just rinse with water thoroughly and pat dry! And one thing that amazes me when I was massaging and rinsing off is DUO's cleansing balm doesn't sting my eyes at all! I can easily remove all my waterproof eyeliners and mascaras without the fear of it stinging my eyes. It's also a gentle product for eyelash extensions users.

After pat dry, I can feel a moisturised but tighten pores feeling almost immediately. No greasy feeling, no fragrant, nothing! Just pure clean and smooth skin waiting to be pampered with my next skincare regime. And There are 3 different types of DUO Cleansing Balm available to suits everyones skin's need:
  • The Cleansing Balm (moisturises skin)
  • The Cleansing Balm Clear ( Tighten pores - the one I'm using)
  • The Cleansing Balm White (Whitening)

Why don't you join with me and embark on this powerful cleansing balm journey as well and see how DUO change the way you cleanse your face as well as the improvement on skin!

It's the time of the year again where hectic schedule and preparation during the day time and countless party are going on at night. In case you didn't look at the calendar lately, it's the end of November and that can only mean one thing -

It's Christmas season!

I always try to keep my skin looking radiant and spotless even with all those crazy schedules that keep occupying my time, and I definitely need something that is effective, no down time and doesn't cost a hole in my bank account. After hearing all my friends and online reviews boast about how good Murad skincare is, I'm thankful I have the opportunity to try their Christmas set:

Founded by Howard Murad, M.D., F.A.A.D., he is a board certified dermatologist, trained pharmacist, associate clinical professor of medicine at U.C.L.A., and a physician who specializes in both inclusive health and dermatology. He's an expert on skin ageing and products of Murad are widely used by facial centres and consumers themselves.

It's easy to differentiate the usage of each products targeting skin issues just by looking at their colour-coded packaging:
  • Blue - Blemish and acne control
  • Orange - Whitening and spot correction
  • Purple - Moisturizing
  • Green - Anti-aging
And of course, with Dr Howard Murad's expertise in anti-aging, green series in Murad skincare is the most popular skincare series and received enormous amount of good reviews both online and offline. 

But I'm here to talk about my favourite skincare ingredients - Vitamin C! Which is the main ingredients for Murad's Vibrant Vibes Christmas set products a.k.a Pigmentation Power Couple: Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum and Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 with PA+++. 

Packed inside a beautiful, iridescent-coloured box, these clinical strength and clinically proven effective that visibly reduce dark spots and brighten up my skin products are just what my skin need for most of the time seeing that I live in a tropical country and loves going outdoor and travel. 

I would love to highlight my love for the Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum that has lighten some of the dark spots on my skin that forms over time ever since I did some laser peeling treatment last year. As my skin layer renews, I knew its barrier has turn fragile and even though I did apply sunscreen on my face, but it seems the fate of dark spots forming is inevitable. Honestly I'm a tiny-bit regret about the laser treatment but hey, here's Murad come for the rescue!

I've been enjoying my skin being taken of by this Pigmentation Power Duo and saw some visible changes on my skin since 3 weeks ago! It has lighten my dark spots here and there, lighten some wrinkles and fine lines as well as brighten up my skin and I'm very happy with my skin condition these days!

Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum:

The first thing that came into my mind when I'm applying this spot correcting serum is Dr. Murad's favourite quote about skincare "Make your heart happy and your skin will glow". The hint of tangy orange from this serum sparks joy to my skin and mind as I'm a huge fan of sweet orange aroma. I love a good fruity scent on my skincare products.

airless pump packaging, mess free!

Aside of its delightful scent, it's lightweight, easily absorbed, non-greasy and oh my I already can felt the differences since the first time I apply this serum on my skin. This serum incorporates well with my other skincare regime and I felt my skin has been smoother, dark spots less visible ever since. I know it's the effect of rich anti-oxidants Vitamin C and Oligopeptides that's been helping my skin tone to even out and brings out the glow from inside.

liquid-gel like texture, easy to smoothen out on skin

Here's how I use this product:
Cleanse - Toning - Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum - Moisturizer 

Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 with PA+++

It ain't a good skincare routine if shielding out those UVA and UVB rays aren't in your plan. One of the main cause of skin ageing and dark pigmentation forming are because of harmful sun rays. Of course, with our polluted environment, the needs of forming a protective barrier for our skin is so much more important than the nutrients we keep feeding our skin. Hence Murad's Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 with PA+++ comes to rescue.

long nozzle tube packaging, easy to estimate the amount being squeeze from the tube

This is not a sunscreen, but it's a defensive and powerful barrier that shields our skin from anything that causes harm to our skin. This patented skin lotion contains Vitamin C, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract and SPF, as well as Skin Repair System that improves skin's firmness, elasticity and vibrance. There's absolutely no harm in applying more protective layers on skin isn't?

creamy but surprisingly lightweight and smooth, easily absorbed into skin with semi-matte finishing!

Here's how I use this product:
Cleanse - Toning - Serum - Moisturizer - Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 with PA+++ - Sunscreen - Makeup

Just 3 weeks apart, my skin appears brighter, smoother, and I can already see the dark spot on my cheeks being less visible. Vitamin C products such as this Christmas set from Murad is your best friend if you'r looking for something that helps you even out skin tone as well as looking younger and brighter!

Look great and feel great this Christmas like how I do with Murad's Vibrant Vibes Christmas set! Priced at RM498 and you'll get one set of Rapid Age Spot Correcting Serum (30ml) and Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF30 with PA+++ (50ml) in a beautiful box. It's gonna be a sparkly, radiant Christmas for both you and your skin!

When it comes to aesthetic, honestly, I don't know but can't stop having a mixed feeling about it. I don't have much knowledge about aesthetic procedures before my previous laser treatment and I'm extremely low tolerant to pain, but my recent visit to LACO Aesthetic Clinic has changed my perspectives on aesthetic and beauty treatment procedures.

So the common perception of aesthetic procedures (or known as cosmetic surgery), majority will have the wrong impression of pain, unprofessional suggestion, surgery gone wrong and irresponsible beautician. All these can come to an end if you consult and had procedures done at proper, licensed clinic like LACO!

Located at major townships like Kepong and Puchong, I went to the branch at Kepong and was amazed by my lack of consciousness which LACO stood tall and is just one junction away from the main road Jln Kepong! (Seeing that I always dine around Kepong area but I never realise LACO was so near to me all along!)

Greeted by friendly and pretty (everyone who works in this clinic looks amazingly pretty!) staff of LACO, tea was served and I was waiting for my turn to see the doctor at this cozy waiting corner:

It didn't took long for the doctor's assistant to greet me at the waiting area. I was prep with all the info that I should know about the procedure that I'm opting for that day: Derma Shine. It's a beauty treatment that uses Autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma (A-PRP) & Hyaluronic Acid (HA) that helps your skin regenerate and fight signs of ageing, unwanted wrinkles, tear throughs and scars. 

And since I'm low in pain tolerance, my main concern of this treatment was: Will it be painful? And how long the effect of this treatment will last? The doctor's assistant patiently comfort me with her professionalism and also teach me the right concept about beauty treatment. I will share more about this later on. 

So if you're like me: modern woman with super hectic work schedule and can only visit aesthetic clinic with your daily makeup on after working hours, fret not because before each and every treatment, aesthetician will help to clean your skin thoroughly and it's like a relaxing facial session! I think I calmed down a lot during this facial cleaning stage and it preps me emotionally for the next stage!

While I was enjoying my "facial session", doctor assistant already started the procedure of Derma Shine and withdrew a small amount of blood from my arm. This blood taking process have to strictly conduct under a hygienic environment and with sterile tools only, hence it is a must to visit a proper aesthetic clinic like LACO! (felt like I didn't stress much enough about the importance of a legit aesthetic clinic!)

I wasn't afraid at all during the blood taking process because I'm the weird kid of stare at the whole process when I was a kid. As if it was not enough, I went to see the blood taking process of my classmate as well. The whole process was a breeze and it kinda amazed me my blood spilled out in s  gush! If you're afraid of blood, you might wanna skip the next clip lol.

Why blood taking you ask? It's because the treatment procedure requires the Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma from our own blood, mix it with non-crosslinked Hyaluronic Acid and apply the mixture into our skin. Basically the side effects is very low and limited since the blood platelet comes from within our body hence this treatment didn't cause me any side effects nor discomfort. Did I mention it's zero downtime as well? You can go anywhere and eat anything without any concern right after the treatment!

Each and every clinic will have different application method of the mixed A-PRP & HA, LACO is using the BellaVita injector that each and every injection can be measured and adjust. With its patented needles, hence my skin was applied with aesthetic all over to avoid any discomfort caused to me while the Derma Shine procedure is on going. 

The staffs and doctor's assistant were very kind and gentle they keep ensuring me that it's gonna be a painless procedure and they really make sure that my face feel very very numb before they start the injection procedure. I'm felt so thankful to have met people who fulfilled my needs and assured me over and over again when they notice my insecurities. I guess this is what makes a service stands out from the rest - assurance, understanding, kind and gentle.

After waited for an hour and the anesthetic really numbed my face, the separation of my blood components by centrifugation also completed at the same time. 

A-PRP and HA mix, the activation of my skin's regeneration

Last round of sterilisation and we're ready to go!

Honestly, I was super nervous until the first punch was done and then I was like: wow! Totally no feeling at all! I think the numb cream really works! If I were to give this sensation a scale from 0 to 10, giving birth will be 10, laser treatment is somewhat from 7 to 8 and I would say this Derma Shine treatment scaled from 0 - 2 depends on certain area of facial feature. 

My appointed doctor helps me target more on my acne scars area and injected quite a few times on the same spot. The reason of faster skin cells regeneration of Derma Shine treatment is because of the combining hydrating effect of HA with my own concentrated platelets.

The deeper layers these mixture goes, the more it stimulates growth and activate the process of skin regeneration. My doctor focus a lot on my concerned areas such as cheeks due to my acne scars and during the process, she gave me a mirror and I can see the immediate glow from skin after she injected the A-PRP+HA mix!

 already can see my skin is glowing 

Almost there!

I was told that some aesthetician they use needle to inject these into patient's skin, and I only can imagine how uneven it's gonna be. With the injector that LACO clinic uses, it minimises the loss of my precious concentrated platelets as well as the expensive Hyaluronic Acid. Doctor can expect measurable, detailed result as well hence it's for the benefit of both doctor and patients. 

Last but not least....

doctor squeeze the A-PRP+HA mix till the last drop! Maximise the usage!

Here's the comparison photos of before - during - after, be amazed and blinded by the glow of my skin!

Before - after the application of numb cream

During - image taken right after the injection

After - Can you see the glow from within my skin! 

Seriously, the immediate differences I saw in these 3 photos amazes me! This is the stunning result of Derma Shine treatment: it strengthens facial ligaments and increased the hydration and luminosity of skin appearance as well as boost natural skin regeneration.

One treatment like mine can last for 3 months and its effectiveness can be prolong if you're doing Derma Shine treatment for long term because it improves skin's appearance and skin's regeneration. Without concern of side effects, this is one treatment I'll recommend to my friends and family.

After the injection was finished and clean up a bit, LACO strengthens the Derma Shine's effectiveness with some light therapy. It is proven to heal skin and improves skin condition with the power of light as each light wave will target certain skin conditions and heals them.

Green light - to soothes and calm skin's condition, very much needed after the treatment

Red light - improves blood circulation and help skin cells regenerates in a faster pace

It was a breezy procedure: eyes well-covered and you can literally become a sleeping beauty during this light therapy. This is the first time I learnt about light therapy and know the effects of different lighting targets different skin conditions. Guess we get to learn new things everyday huh!

Last but not least, my "facial session" came to a full circle when they apply Vitamin U soothing mask on my skin. I love its cooling effect and it really calms my skin and the redness due to Derma Shine treatment immediately reduced!

I think I dozed off and had a short beauty sleep during this mask session, waking up to a smoother, luminous skin that my face felt like a light bulb! No exaggeration at all, my friends whom I met up for dinner right after the treatment say that my face glows! 

This is the Vitamin U essence soothing mask and thanks LACO for this gift!

Here's some closer look of my skin condition after the Derma Shine treatment:

It's been a week since the treatment and I love how my skin looks and feel! My facial feature looks brighter and hydrated! Thank you LACO Aesthetic Clinic for delivering such professional skill and I never more happier looking at mirror these days!
