SP: OLAY AquAction Long-lasting Hydration Gel

12:50 PM


Last month I received another OLAY product for review. This time, it is from the new OLAY AquAction line-up which is now available in all leading pharmacies since November 2013.

The OLAY AquAction range is powered by the breakthrough HydraLock technology to deliver a new standard of hydration- for us women to get "Pump-pump" bouncy skin! ;)
Pump-pump bouncy skin is achieved when skin cells are well-hydrated and attain a full, rounded shape, giving skin a firm and elastic touch.

This new range is to deliver 12-hour non-stop hydration so skin is kept hydrated longer.
That is all for a brief background introduction. Now for the product itself!
The jar contains so much goodness for the skin. At 50g, it is full to the brim of the gel. The silver cap is easy to twist. The jar fits into my palm nicely. It's a hard type of glass. And I am bias towards blue; I love this blue so much! *cough Okay, back to review.
Upon opening the cap, there is a white lid before we get to see the gel in it. I have a bad impression of this lid. See the small jutting out holder? Try lifting that up. At first, this lid stuck to the cap. Maybe because of the gel sipping through the small gaps around the lid. Then when it unstuck, I had a difficult time to take the lid of the jar. So, whenever I twist the cap, I made sure it was done with the lid stuck on. :P Oh, some of the gel were on the under side of the lid.
The gel is in a semi liquid state. It is not too watery that it runs of my finger. As you can see, it is in light blue.

Jar blue, now gel also light blue. This product just might be my most favourite for spoiling me with my favourite colour!
First, I will test it on my hand. My hand has rough skin; very lazy to use lotion.
See the part where it shines? That's the gel. And around it? Dry skin.
I have been using it for 1 month now. Here's my verdict:
The jar has one fault- that lid with the crazy small holder. But I understand it is because of the flat cap. As long as the lid is stuck to the cap upon opening, then I am fine with it. 
The gel itself is actually sticky with minimal smell. The sticky feeling is like applying lotion. At first, I didn't like the stickiness and the absorption is not fast enough for me. But waking up in the morning, my skin felt better. When I used it during the day, my skin didn't feel dry, instead it was hydrated well.

Rating: 4 stars (if the lid is changed, then maybe a 4 1/2 stars)

SP: Mediviron UOA Part II

9:00 AM


Remember my post about Mediviron UOA? Well, here is the continuation! There is also another treatment to review.

On Monday, 10 February 2014, I went to Mediviron UOA for my previous treatment. I met the doctor and she asked me how I feel, is there any discomfort or do I see any improvement.

The doctor is 'reviewing' my face. :P

Honestly I noticed that the part near my jaw looked slimmer. It looked 'up'. I can't describe properly with words; here's a picture to explain what I mean.

The difference is the chin area. However, Botox treatment takes a longer time to see the result.

After the review, the doctor said I can proceed to Venus Freeze.

What is Venus Freeze?

Venus Freeze treatments are non-invasive and painless fat loss and body lifting treatments.

Venus Freeze utilizes (MP)2 technology, namely Magnetic Pulse Therapy and Multi Polar Radiofrequency. This technology corrects a variety of biological phenomena that causes skin aging.

For this, they cleaned my face and applied a gel on my cheeks, avoiding the area which was injected with Botox.
Putting cleanser on my face to get rid of the dirt and germs and make my face so clean.

Drying my face to prepare for the treatment.

Applying the gel for the Venus Freeze treatment.

This is the gel and used so that the treatment is more effective.

One word I can tell you about Venus Freeze: Hot.

The temperature started at around 35 degrees Celcius. 
First doing my right cheek.

Then to me left cheek. You can see that my right cheek was red already from the heat.

She is doing it in circular movements.

BUT you can ask them to lower the temperature. I went to as low as 26 degrees Celcius. That is the lowest allowed or the treatment won't be effective.

My red cheeks. Like I just went to a gym session.

After the treatment, they applied a sunscreen on my face. I learnt that sunscreen need to reapply after 3 hours because after that, actually we are exposed to the Sun.

Here is my face after one week. Sorry for the breakouts there.
Any difference?

For me, YES.

My chin isn't as horizontal as before. Previously, before the Venus Freeze treatment, my chin looked a bit different than before Botox treatment. A bit because that treatment takes a longer time to see the effect. With Venus Freeze, I noticed that my cheeks looked smaller and not as puffy as previously. I usually get the above face if I suck in my cheeks. :P

I have another appointment with the doctor to review my face and whether I am happy with the result. After the Venus Freeze, I am happy that my cheeks don't look chubby. Baby fat? Had it for a long time already; I want to look older even if for a few years.

I will update after the appointment. :)

Being 23

11:54 PM


This author is now 23 and no driving license yet. :P

Anyway, I love my birthday cake this year as it is not spoil by any poking candles or ugly words in cream. I saw how my 9yo brother's cake and didn't like the way the shop did the wording so yeah, no thanks, skip the wording please, the way you do is terrible. 

Lazy to transfer the picture from phone to here, so birthday cake, click here. If you want to, no force.

Well, got my birthday wishes from Facebook inbox which is my preferred way instead of people spamming my wall. >.<

I also received wishes from Instagram, text messages, Whatsapp (my sister spammed with emoticons =.=") and an unexpected call. Thank you.

Actually, when my family sang the birthday song, I got this really embarrassing feeling. It's like I am happy but also shy at the same time, wondering am I not too old to still hear this birthday song? :P

I wonder how long will we get to do this special ritual of us: getting a cake, blowing candles (sorry, this year I skipped to save the beauty of the cake) and singing the birthday song?

Oh, tonight, I am feeling really happy and grateful.

It's a secret and well, it's nothing big really but it made me really, really happy. xD

That one special day

5:00 AM


Actually had an early lunch celebration for this date, on 30 Jan Quite a surprise for me because normally it's family and ordinary. Like a cake and candles and the song. 

But yeah, the lunch was special in way.

Because I had my first glass of red wine. Ah, it was just a glass and let's hear the whole story first okay before anyone rant me...

So, I was asked out to lunch, identity shall not be disclosed as we are strictly friends. Yes, we are. Period. Why do some people think a guy and a lady, both being single, equals to being a couple? Ah, I digress.

Well, he asked me to choose a restaurant for lunch. My pick. And females being females, I was wondering what to eat. :P

I picked Japanese but Rakuzen was closed. So we went into a fusion Japanese restaurant. If I remembered correctly the type of food served there.

Sorry no pictures of interior. Pretty lazy and I am not really a food blogger. I just took one picture of the art something that encased a bulb. It was quite big and round so I took a picture of it and uploaded to Instagram. You can scroll to Instagram for the pictures I am going to mention in the rest of this post. Super lazy cheat one.

I ordered a kid's meal which had art decoration in it. Super cute max!! You can click on the link to see what I mean. :P

I nearly ended up not eating the 'head' though. I felt so cruel so I closed my eyes and 'disfigured' it first just to make the 'head' not be a head anymore. But... a piece of art gone. T.T

Okay, about the first glass of red wine.

The orange juice was also my drink, a set meal with the kid's meal actually. So, I had two drinks that time. 

At first, the wine tasted so bitter and I didn't like it much. xD

Then he finished his lunch and I was still eating the head AND I still had the wine to finish. I didn't finish drinking it though, left it to at least 1/3 of the glass. By then, I was feeling giggly already. Which actually means I may cannot tolerate wine much. :P

After that, wanted to get waffles but the place was closed so back we went to the same restaurant for desserts.I asked for a fruit tart this time and finished it in record time. It tasted so good!

Then I wanted to drink coffee before going back. It's Vanilla Latte in a tall cup. I asked for a small size, turned out tall is the smallest size. :P

Now is the interesting part. 

Maybe because the red wine is a first for me and I was kind of eating much that time, so my stomach did it's menace on me. Urgently, I asked where the toilet is.

And I went to puke.

Yeah, I puked after eating all those great food. Award eh?

But after that, I felt better and was not giggly anymore. A silver lining from the puke maybe...

When this post is publish, I just want to say, that day was great, it was fun and need I stress it again, we are just friends. If I repeat myself again, I swear that I better wear a headband that says my heart is locked away in some deep dungeon guarded by barb wire and poisonous gas and some great scaly green dragon lizard patrolling the surrounding...

Oh. Sorry but being asked just irritates me a lot. Like a lot lot.

Happy Birthday to me. Officially 23 and don't have a driving license YET.
