Sparkle with Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask!

Being an Althea Angels, i am so excited to be theirĀ beauty ambassador for all the K-beauty awesomeness that Althea have to offer. Recently, Althea has sent me a sparkling product for review and i am so excited to share my review with all~ But before that, let me refresh your memory about Althea!

In June 2015, Althea was founded to bridge authentic K-beauty to SEAsians. Despite the increasing popularity of K-beauty items in the world, there was not a one-stop shopping destination where every and anyone in the world could enjoy authentic K-beauty products at a reasonable price, just as Korean consumers do in Korea. Althea innovates the cross border distribution channel to connect K-beauty suppliers directly with SEA consumers. Althea offers comprehensive K-beauty selections at the lowest price to our consumers and strives to become the gateway to the world, most favored by K-beauty suppliers.

What i love about shopping on Althea is that they carry a lot of brands and the website is so easy to navigate. Moreover, prices are competitive, products are authentic and delivery is fast (Do you know that there will be free shipping if your purchases are above $29?)! I have always love Althea’s secure packaging so that you are rest assure that products without damage šŸ™‚

I have received theĀ Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask for review which will give my skin the royal treatment! This innovative peel-off mask pack contains 99% 24k real gold to exfoliate dead skin cells, brighten and improve the elasticity of the skin, giving my skin a youthful glow worthy of a princess. It’s also made with moisturizing ingredients that prevent flaky dry skin, so I’ll be left with supple, smooth skin. Ready to go for gold? I’m sure is!

Do you know that gold mask therapy is popular ingredient in aesthetic treatments to improve pore and skin tone? Not only that, the gold molecules helps with anti-aging to lift and firm skin. It also helps to calm skin, improve skin texture and radiance! Likewise, theĀ Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask promises to purify, improve transparency,Ā exfoliate, life, brighten, moisturizing and nourishes the skin!

Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask is suitable for all skin types and it contains real 24k gold to hydrate, nourishes, purifies andĀ exfoliates the skin for a smooth complexion.

Key Ingredients:

24k GoldĀ – purifies the skin and improves circulation

Snail extractĀ – moisturizes and encourages the regeneration of skin cells to lighten scars and smoothen the skin

Seaweed extractĀ – rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental pollutants

Benefits of theĀ Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask:

  • Reduce signs of aging like fine lines, wrinklesĀ and pores
  • Firming, Soothing and Calming of Skin
  • Deeply moisturize skin and helps with renewal of cells
  • Improve skin radiance and skin tone
  • Exfoliation of skin thus promoting skin purification, brightness and reduce black heads

Ā TheĀ Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask comes in a classy black and gold 80ml tub with a protective layer to keep the mask fresh and hygienic. Inside, it containsĀ a plastic spatulaĀ to ease application of mask and also keep the mask germs free.

My husband saw the mask and was quite interested to try it out. Since his T-zone is full of black heads, i shall put the Gold Wrapping Mask to good use. Upon opening the mask, you will see a layer of transparent gel on top. Just mix it well with the spatula provided and it is ready to be applied onto the skin. Personally, i find it easier to scoop the mask onto the face and then use the fingers to spread it evenly.

TheĀ Gold Wrapping Mask has a thick yet runny consistency (reminds me of milk shake!) and it shimmers! So pretty!Ā Due to the thick consistency, it took about 15-20 mins for the mask to dry before i can peel it off. Will recommend that you apply a thin layer first and then slowly build the layer. Also, try not to apply too much product as it will take forever to dry~ My husband said that there’s a cooling sensation when i applied the mask on and he finds it refreshing! Once the mask is dry and ready to be peeled off, it will feel taut. Before you peel it off, you can test to see if it is dry and just rub the mask on the side and the mask can be peeled off easily (No pain!)

After removing the mask, the black head on my husband’s nose area reduced! In addition, his skin is brighter, smoother and more hydrated! The acne on his cheek area also healed faster than before. The only downside about this mask is that the application is a little troublesome but other than that, it works so well!! Best of all, the mask is really affordable and one tub will go a long way! Try it for yourself today. šŸ™‚

Caring For Sensitive Acne Prone Skin with Klarity!

Since secondary school days, i have been battling with acne. In order to fight against acne, i have been undergoing plenty of aesthetic treatments and medications that resulted in bad sensitive skin. MyĀ sensitive skin will turn very weak due to poor resilience which brings about other skin issues like increased sebum secretion and breakouts! I have been going for regular facial which put acne breakouts in control~ However, sensitive oily skin is not something that is easy to treat so in between facial, i have to maintain it with products~ Recently, Klarity has sent me some products which will address acne prone sensitive skin.

Klarity (Founded by Karine Estelle Cheong) is halal certified functional skin care brand (MFDS Korea Approved) which aims to fulfill beauty needs with professionalism. It conveys the value of its brand by only providing clients with high-quality products. Klarity believes that youthful healthy skin requires daily commitment of superior formulations. Teaming up with a group of dermatologists from Korea, the brand meticulously yield a harmonious blend of medical grade ingredients and cosmetic science with nature to make consumers look and feel good.Ā The products are manufactured in Korea using France and Swiss technology. Klarityā€™s philosophy is to provide functional skin care solutions with no down time, non-invasive and skin friendly ingredients ā€“ no paraben.Ā Tested and Proven~

First product that i will be touching on will be the Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion whichĀ helps to restore skin’s beauty with at least one tone lighter whitening effect instantaneously. The lotion is enriched with diamond powder, giving you the instant glow after application. Also enriched with wild rosehip extract, which is a source of powerful antioxidant, it helps to prolong skin youthfulness.

With sun screen factor SPF30/PA++, Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion protects the skin from harmful UV rays, preventing photo-aging and dark spots. This 11-in-1 multi functions CC lotion is light on skin and colorant free. The non-sticky and non-oily formula leaves skin smoother and hydrated.

Benefits of theĀ Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion:

1. The first CC cream with no colorant!
2. Waterproof, stay naturally fair no matter rain or shine.
3. Helps to reduce acnes, lightens acne marks, soothes itchiness, and lightens scar marks.

Have tried the Lasertox CC Miracle White Lotion previously and here’s my thoughts on it. The CC lotion has a white creamy texture that will turn into a watery film once you have spread it! It is easy to blend and light-weighted.. Thereā€™s a slight ā€˜grapeā€™ scent which smells pleasant and the lotion does not weight down skin after application.

As this is a non-tinted CC lotion, i donā€™t expect it to have any coverage at all. It also does not cover redness well but it helps in even and brightens my dull skin. Also, it provides the skin with a matt finish and does not feel sticky at all! Oil control is very good as well as it keeps my oily skin matt for a reasonable amount of time. Overall, i feel that this CC lotion works better as a brightening light-weighted sunscreen. Most important of all, it is suitable for acne-prone skin as it does not clog pores nor does it cause breakouts~

Color contrast (Picture on centre and on the right) : Left is without CC lotion and Right is with CC lotion

Next, i will be reviewing one of the newly launched product – Klarity Acne Control Ampoule which targets people with acne prone oily skin.Ā The Klarity Revival Bespoke Acne Care Ampoule containsĀ  Willow Bark (Salix Alba) extract which accounts for anti-inflammatory properties that reduces redness, scars, acne, pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and skin damage. Through eliminating impurities such as redness, blotchiness and soothing skin irritation, a fresh, radiant and velvety complexion is made possible.

Key Benefits of theĀ Klarity Acne Control Ampoule includes:

– Eliminates impurities
– Anti-inflammatory
– Soothes skin irritations
– Reduces redness
– Repairs skin damages

If you have sensitive acne prone skin like mine, Klarity Acne Control Ampoule is a non-invasive functional skincare which is safe for daily use. Thanks to Klarity’s ampouleĀ technology, this multi-functional product is non-invasive and made ofĀ natural and active ingredientsĀ  to deliver instantaneousĀ results. Key ingredients includes Willow Bark (Salix Alba),Ā Rose Extract and Chamomile which has anti-inflammatory benefits. With each use, it helps to reduce redness, calms irritated skin and relieve swollen skin.

Klarity Acne control Ampoule is available inĀ 5ml and 18ml and you can use it as a Spot Treatment (it clears pimples and acne in just a few days) and you can also use it on bug bites to reduce swell and itchness

How to use:

Apply 2-3 drops of the ampoules on your face, avoiding eye area, as sleeping mask in your skincare routine, use it as makeup base, add it into your makeup cushion or foundation for additional skincare benefits or form your own mask combination as in our Revival Bespoke Mask Kit!

Klarity Acne Control Ampoule has a frosted glass container packaging with an awesome pump applicator which makes application fuss-free and hygienic.Ā  What’s awesome about the applicator is that i don’t have to squeeze on the applicator in order to get the ampoule~ Will only need to unscrew the applicator from the bottle and the right amount of ampoule will be picked up in the process~

I’m using theĀ Klarity Acne Control Ampoule on my nose and as a spot treatment on my pimples. The AC ampoule is fragrance-free and it has a fluid consistency so it gets absorbed well by the skin and not leave behind any stickness~ Hence, your makeup will not be patchy if you use this as a spot treatment. Do you know that the AC Ampoule is multi-functional so it can be used as a sleeping mask, makeup base and you can alsoĀ add it into your makeup cushion or foundation for additional skincare benefits. The AC ampoule is mild on my sensitive skin and it does not cause any stinging sensation and redness after application. Instead, it helps to calm down the redness of my pimples so i will wake up to ‘not-so angry’ pimples. After using the AC Control Ampoule, i have observed lesser blackheads on my nose area and pimples will be ‘flatten’ in 2- 3 days! Amazing!!!!!!! Will highly recommend this to anyone who wants to combat spots on their face which works effectively but yet stay mild on skin.

Clean skin is the first important step to flawless acne-free skin and the best thing you can do is to deep-cleanse skin from time to time. It is important to use effective products that will remove all dust, excessive sebum, impurities and make-up which contributes to skin problems (like clogged pores, acne and sensitivity). The Klarity O2 Mud Acacia Duo Cleanse and Acne Care MaskĀ is a highly effective mask specifically formulated for skin in need for deep cleansing, repair, balancing and nutrient hydration. O2 Mud Acacia will also be theĀ best acne care for people with oily skin and frequent outbreaks for clear, baby smooth skin!

Revolutionize your cleansing and mask regime with O2 Mud Acacia as upon application, this unique mask changes into oxygen foam. Gentle yet high performing, this mask is specially formulated for the best soothing, healing and skin repair efficiency. Utilizing acacia extracts, its rich anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties facilitates the best environment for skin repair against skin damage caused by environmental factors. Skin appears significantly clearer, moisturized and smoother with each use. As a result, the skin will be well regulated for sebum related skin concerns while remaining hydrated for youthful and rosy radiant complexion.

Klarity O2 Mud Acacia Duo Cleanse and Acne Care Mask has 4-in-1 functions and you can use it as a cleanser, makeup remover, gentle exfoliator and treatment mask. Mild enough for daily usage and all skin types, it has deep cleansing ability and removes dirt, oil, makeup, and other impurities on your skin.

How to use:

Step 1:Ā  Apply Oxymud with spatula provided

Step 2: Spread the product evenly with fingersĀ cleansed and dry face, avoiding eye and mouth areas

Step 3: Leave on the product and watch the oxygenating process!Ā Leave on for 10-15 minutes and wash off with water

What’s special about the O2 Mud is that it will transform to oxygen foam upon application. After a few minutes, the oxygen bubbles helps to push out the dirt trapped in the pores, ensuring pores are deeply cleanse without the need for any harsh scrubbing.

As the improved upgrade from the Oxy Mud series, the 02 Mud series is now better, faster and foamier.Ā Ā While conventional cleansers only cleanse, the 02 MUD Acacia Duo also exfoliates for brighter skin, deep cleanses to reduce product build-up, removes makeup as well as nourishing skin as a treatment mask.

Below lie a few hero ingredients:

Acacia (Robinia Pseudoacacia) Extract ā€“ Soothes, Heals, and Firms

A natural gum consisting of the hardened sap of the Acacia Tree, this extract is anti-inflammatory, fights free radicals to reduce skin damages while soothing to calm and promote restoration for the best skin repair. The super-firming effect it has to provide instant lifting and skin plumping in supporting the skinā€™s natural collagen and elastin fibers is definitely a bonus.

Punica Granatum Fruit Extract ā€“ Micro-circulates, Antioxidant and Anti-inflammatory

Commonly known as Pomegranate, this helps to renew cells by stimulating the proliferation to nurture new and even skin tones through enhancing micro-circulation. Skin is kept firm by its compounds of ellagic acid that helps to break down collagen while extending the life of the skinā€™s structural integrity and elasticity.

Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract ā€“ Moisture, Regenerates and Antioxidant

This protein-rich extract is more commonly known as the superfood acai. Rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9, it retains skin moisture and regenerates skin. Capable of producing compounds called anthocyanins, skin is protected from environmental damages as well as fighting free radical damages during inflammatory processes.

Bentonite ā€“ Detoxes, Heals, and Exfoliates

Formed from volcanic ash, the clay is made from minerals such as iron, sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium that gives a negative electric charge to absorb and remove oil and other impurities from the skin. Apart from healing, it also exfoliates by removing dead cells, unclogging dirt and oil in pores while stimulating cell regeneration.

Kaolin ā€“ Exfoliates, Cleanses, and Controls

Named after the Kao-ling mountain in China where this clay has been mined for centuries, Kaolin exfoliates and cleanses dead skin cells from the skin by clearing pores as well as soaking up excess moisture without causing flakiness. This clay also controls oil production and shine in its absorbency.

So honored to be able to try theĀ Klarity O2 Mud Acacia Duo Cleanse and Acne Care Mask before it is launched! The O2 Mud Acacia comes in a chic container with a seal on top to prevent the mask from oxidizing. When i opened up the seal, there’s small bubbles as the mask contains oxygen!! TheĀ O2 Mud Acacia also comes with reusableĀ lid and spatula so that product remains fresh and hygienic.

The O2 MudĀ Acacia has a sweet pleasant scent and it has a creamy consistency~ When applied on, it gives a soothing and cooling sensation which i LOVEEEE! It spreads onto my skin smoothly and i will recommend that you smear the mud (While the mask is bubbling) to allow oxygen to be released fully. Very soon after application the O2 Mud will transform into a fluffy layer of oxygen foam and there is a slight ting-ling sensation during the process. It is recommended to leave it on for 10-15 mins to allow the oxygen bubbles to deep cleanse the pores~ My skin feels light and i love the soothing sensation while waiting for the oxygen foam to work its magic.

It is very easy to wash off the O2 Mud and after removal, i was so surprised that my skin felt so much smoother! My skin has always been rough to the touch as it is dehydrated and after using the O2 mask, it is instantly hydrated. Another obvious difference is that my skin became cleaner, brighter and more radiant (See that glow in the ‘After’ picture)! Next morning, i woke up to less greasy and calmer skin. Major LOVE!

Bio-Oil – How It Saved My Dry Skin.

Hello everyoneeeeeeeeeeeeee!! How are you?? It has been a long time since my last update so i hope i am not forgotten.. hahahaha!! Anyway, i just came back from a pilgrimage trip to Israel and it is indeed aĀ life-changing experience where i get to see the Bible come alive! I felt that the trip strengthen my faith and relationship with God as i get to learn more things about Daddy God! Personally my favorite spot is the Garden Tomb where Jesus was buried and he has risen victoriously for us! With God in the centre, we also did a holy communion and renewal of marriage vow at the Garden Tomb which is so meaningful! Here’s a snippets of my the 11 days in the Holy Land, Enjoy!

As it was winter in Israel,Ā the dry and cold weather made my skin dry and itchy.. Especially the skin on my hands as i had to wash them many times throughout the day. Thank God that before the trip, Access Communication sent me a bottle for Bio-Oil which helped relieve my dry skin!

Bio Oil is a specialist skin care oil highly effective for numerous other skin concerns including scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, ageing and dehydrated skin. Its hydrating properties has been found to aid in skin renewal, as well as protecting against free radical damage at the same time. In addition, Bio-Oil can help to soothe and condition dry skin, on the face and body, nourish dry cuticle and even tame fly-away. This is one multi-purpose oil that will protect you from top to toe during travel (So that you can travel light!)

Containing breakthrough ingredients PurCellin Oil, Vitamins A & E, Calendula, Lavender, Rosemary and Chamomile Oil, this multi purpose problem-solution specialist skincare oil can also be used to improve the appearance of pigmentation marks and blemishes. No wonder it is the No.1 Selling Scar and Scar Mark Product in 23 countries, including Singapore

Originated and manufactured in South Africa, this Bio-Oil was launched in 1987 and has grown to become the global leader in this segment over the last 28 years. Globally, Bio-Oil has won more than 222 skincare awards. Bio-Oil is the product most recommended by doctors and pharmacists around the world for scars and stretch marks issues.

This multi purpose oil is clinically researched to be effective and safe for face and body. If you are concerned that it is too heavy / rich to apply it on your face, not to worry! Bio-Oil is also suitable for sensitive skin and has been independently tested and proven to be non comedogenic, which means it will not cause acne or spots. Even though Bio-Oil is an oil, it is known as dry oil which means it is rapidly absorbed into skin without leaving a greasy residue, this will not cause breakout.

Bio Oil successfully combines the well documented benefits of two important skincare disciplines ā€“ Natural plant oils, used for centuries to enhance the skinā€™s condition + vitamins to promote healthy skin. What is unique to Bio-Oil is the Purecellion oil (a breakthrough ingredient) which reduces the consistency of Bio Oil, making it a light and easily absorbed dry oil that rapidly absorbed into the skin without leaving an oily residue. Bio Oil also contains formulation of Vitamins A and E, moisturising natural plant oils ā€“ Lavender, Calendula, Rosemary and Chamomile to feed your skin with what it needs!

While Bio-Oil has been synonymous linked with pregnant mummies and is well-known to be a solution for stretch marks and scars, it is so much more than that. Enriched with Vitamins A and E, and Lavender, Calendula, Rosemary and Chamomile essential oils, Bio-Oil is a multi-tasking skincare solution, suitable for everyone in the family.

1. For busy mums:
Bio-Oil is a fuss-free moisturiser that helps keep the complexion soft, supple and youthful. With its antioxidant-rich formula, it protects skin against free radical damages while ensuring that it stays even-toned and radiant.

2. For busy dads:
Bio-Oil is the perfect pre- and post-shave buddy. A few drops of Bio-Oil before shaving softens the skin to prevent razor burns while a few drops after helps nourish and hydrate freshly shaven skin.

3. For the kiddos:
With kids, whether big or small, bumps, bruises, cuts and falls are a common occurrence. So, the next time, your child gets injured, apply a little Bio-Oil (but never on an open wound or broken skin), to prevent or reduce the appearance of scarring.

4. For everyone:
Bio-Oil also works as a great all-over hydrator
ā€¢ After shower, while skin is still slightly damp, apply Bio-Oil all over the body for velvety-soft skin. The inclusion of PurCellinTM oil contributes to Bio-Oilā€™s lightweight texture, helping it absorb quickly and easily so the skin feels comfortable.

Itā€™s easy to see why making Bio-Oil a staple in your home benefits everyone.

Do you know that Bio-Oil has a new look in 2018! Taking a more cosmeceutical and clinical appearance approach. the new packaging for Bio-Oil reflects the product’s simplicity and efficacy from the get-go. Where once the ingredients and skincare benefits were found on a pack leaflets, they are now written on the carton and the bottle , taking the centre stage. In short, this easy to access essential information makes it easier for consumers to discover and understand the product at first glance. In addition, the new packaging is now a tamper-proof carton with a new logo, lending modernity to the product’s look and feel without changing the original formulation.

As mentioned, i had extremely dry skin when i was in Israel. It was dry to the extend that it cracked (Ouch!). Thank God that i had Bio-Oil with me which helps to hydrate my skin which really help! After reapplying it throughout the day, i was glad that the skin on my hands stopped cracking and started to heal. Not to mention, Bio-Oil smells nice andĀ it’s not too greasy and it’s absorbent. Someone on my tour bus also had very dry skin and i passed her my bottle of Bio-Oil to try. She also agreed that it is hydrating and isn’t as greasy as what she thought! šŸ™‚

Bio-Oil is available in three sizes at all leading pharmacies, selected departmental stores and hospitals island wide. Bio-Oil retail prices in Singapore:
