2B Alternative Into Arm & Body

Stepping into the second quarter of 2014, everything just got double-loaded. Shopping needs doubled, work-load doubled (minus the pay ㅠ_ㅠ), and the number on the scale. NO! It did not double. But, have gotten up *sigh*.

Correct me if I’m wrong, being slender and slim is the life-long pursuit of the (self-conscious) female majority! And sadly enough, I am one of the majority. Which resulted in the 101 search of (fastest, most effective and permenant) ways to keep the weight limit in-check.

There are 1001 product in the market, just like one that I’ve used before. And here I am with yet another one – 2B Alternative Into Arm & Body. The brand has been in the market for quite some years (mainly in Hong Kong) and they have Tavia Yeung (杨怡) and Nancy Wu (胡定欣) as their faces.

Let’s get to work the product. 2B Alternative Into Arm & Body 100ml

The gel:

Gel is a little too sticky to my liking.

Usage & Tips 2B Alternative Into Arm & Body

As a very “scientific” person, what caught my eyes is the active ingredient named Acetyl Hexapeptide-3 (AH3), or better known with their commercialized name – Argireline®. Argireline® is a form of anti-aging ingredient (think anti-wrinkle). However, the efficacy is aomewhat arguable as the ingredient inhibits the reactions that cause muscles to move or contract, which in a way stop your muscle from contraction(?). By which translates into causing muscle to sag(?). However, Dr Oz did suggest its use (as part of the ingfredients of) for fine lines reduction, replacing Botox.

You can check out the texture and some personal opinions on the product in my very first embrassingly-awkward-self-editted video (I had fun editting tho, put in extra effort for BTS ^_~).

愛,離開得總是太倉促。

錯的人.2

人們常說〝唉… 遇上了錯的人。〞

其實,你只是厭倦了包容與妥協;你只是遇到了,你沒有辦法繼續包容疼愛的人。

My 60 Seconds Valentine

It’s been a while since I last did a review. Thought of doing a video but was too lazy (Haa!).

Well, Valentine’s day might’ve been gone but it’s never too late for the TLC (for yourself, that is!). Here’s a review of my new found beauty verdict (though, it has been dancing at the back of my mind for a year or so). Let’s run some background before we start:
I’ve been struggling with a mild sensitive skin for a year. It happened overnight (literally) where I woke up with itch and red swollen patches. I started my rescue and soon discovered there’s little moisturizer which I could use. On and off, I tried some new stuff, but they all fixed me with a new appointment with my skin doctor. So, I gave up and rely only on bio-serum and baby oil. Occasionally (those monthly occasion, you know what I mean), I’ll have zits and breakouts. Aside from these, I have nothing to complain about my skin condition (but deep inside, I know it can be improved! pº_ºq).

This babe I’m about to introduce, was stumbled upon due to the industry I’m working in (it’s pretty impossible for someone not-so-skincare-fanatic like me to actually discover a high-end skincare machine as such). It’s pretty pricy to start with, so I was thinking maybe I’ll get it for one of the occasion (the real occasion, eg: my birthday or Christmas) real soon. The reasons I’m calling it a babe are:
1) It’s (baby) PINK!
2) It’s a Valentine’s present.
3) It’s from Mas Ter (my babe *prick*~~~).

Okay, let’s get down to work.

What I’ve got here is a Mia 2.

Brush head (l). Spinning 300 rounds per sec (r).

I’m gonna simply go through the routine, you can read the features and stuff on their site.

image

Wet the brush head (and your face) and pump one droplet of facial cleanser into the centre loop. Usually, I’ll rub it to foam a little before I put it on my face.

image

Place it on your skin, do not press. With gentle circulating motion, go over your face. It’ll be 20s on the forehead, 20s over your nose and chin and 10s on each cheek. There’s a indicator beep for each section’s timing (sequence as per mentioned), so no worries of losing track of time.

1 minute and you’re done!
Wash your brush thoroughly after each use. It’s water-proof, so go on run it over running shower/tap.

Here’s goes the before (l) after (r). Pardon the light setting.

Pores are visibly NOT so visible. LOL. Effortlessly *dang*!

Here’s myself with brow and blush, even Moon’s in love!

Clarisonic is actually dubbed the acne clearing system (by me. I remember reading testimonial that it actually helps reduce acne and the skin sensitivity, too). For me myself (result varies from individual to individual!), aside from the reduce of visible pores, I have not been experiencing breakouts. Even before, during and/or after monthly occasion. Would say it’s a definite worthy investment.

Side note on caring of Clarisonic:
1) Brush head is replaceable, so no worries of worn out (and you have to buy a new machine pfft!)
2) It is suggested to replace brush head every 3 months (with the amount *kaching* saved for more [useless] skin care product, I think you can buy 2 [brush] heads every 3 months).

In case you wonder, here’s my facial cleanser.
