Skincare Review: The Face Shop’s Yehwadam Revitalising Serum and Snow Lotus Pearl Capsule

The Face Shop - Yehwadam - Review - Skin Care - Anti Ageing

This year’s first skin care review goes to two new products from The Face Shop that have floored me. Like I said a couple of posts ago, I would be a little more picky when it comes to what I feature on this space so as to give you guys more curated content and I think these new products are a good way to start that new policy.

So The Face Shop recently came out with a new range called Yehwadam and I was able to try their Revitalising Serum and the Snow Lotus Brightening Pearl Capsule Cream. Both are great if you’re looking into adding some oomph into your night time routine – especially on the anti-ageing department.

As somebody who often writes about beauty, I get approached to try out new products quite often. To be honest, nothing much surprises or even piques my interest these days as things tend to get a bit repetitive in the beauty scene.

There, I said it.

Quite a number of times, I’ve encountered products that seem promising but end up being gimmicky – much to my disappointment. So I end up not writing about them because they’re just a waste of time and effort.

Recently, however, I got to know of Japanese beauty company Tansan Magic. At first, I was quite reluctant due to my said experience with some gimmicky products these past few months that left me in a beauty rut. But knowing that the Japanese do beauty products  and treatments really well, I thought of giving it a go.

I was sent the Soda Spa Foam and the Sparkling Gelee – two products that you can use both on your skin and hair to make them squeaky clean and hydrated. Just two of the things I truly need on a daily basis.

A 5-Day Gastronomic Feast: Spanish Chef Jose Alonso at The Ritz-Carlton KL

Spanish food has always had a comforting vibe with dishes that are often reminiscent of meals enjoyed with family or a group of friends. Tapas, the small appetiser plates Spain is famous for, are for sharing after all.

Spanish Chef Jose Alonso is a firm believer of keeping that tradition going – even in a formal dining setting. “Fine dining is boring. It’s too quiet and you can’t complain when you don’t like something,” he quipped to a suitably amused group of reporters.

Beauty + Skin Care: The Therapy Range by The Face Shop (Review)

The Face Shop, The Therapy First Serum, The Therapy Moisture Cream, Moisturiser, Serum, Skin Care, Beauty, Review,

Hello, blog! I’ve missed you! Do you still remember your owner? ????  Goodness, I feel like such a bad mother abandoning this space just like that for a few weeks.

Life happened again. Surprise, surprise. I am notorious when it comes to spreading myself too thin and it’s my blog that usually suffers first. My apologies, blog. Mommy loves you! I’ve been away cos of all my work as a freelancer (did you read my Forbes article on Vivy Yusof yet?) and because of something exciting that my friends and I are working on. ????You guys may get news of what it is by tomorrow so do stay tuned. ????

But wait! This blogpost’s purpose is not about me making excuses! (Even though I start most of my posts with that.) It is, however, about something that’s also quite exciting as well – but we’re gonna be hopping off to the skin care department for this one. ????

I’m here today to talk about The Face Shop‘s latest offerings for people like me who are deathly afraid of premature skin ageing. I’m now in my late 20s and the big 3-o is coming in just a couple of years. Before I hit that age, I would like to be fully prepared, thank you very much! Enter – The Therapy range!

It’s The Face Shop‘s line wherein science meets nature. It uses a European formula that contains 135 hand-blended recipes that vary in botanical ingredients. You’re basically purchasing history right there.

They sent me two products to try and I’m gonna be giving you a quick lowdown on each:

Beauty + Hair: Drying Natural Curls without Losing Volume

Curls, Drying Natural Curls, Hair Dryer, Philips, Thermoprotect, Ionic, Hair Styling

Back with a new hair video! So excited to share this with you guys. 🙂 A lot of my friends use to see me often out and about with wet hair because drying takes over three hours! Who has time to wait around at home, right?

I’m sharing my quick dry process to you guys today. It takes 15 minutes tops and I’m still able to retain volume throughout the day.

The Philips Thermoprotect Ionic Hair Dryer is available in Malaysia. Check out the Philips Malaysia website for more information.

More later.

Love,
