Seriously, I don't have much time commit to fitness anymore. Which I guess it's just an excuse for myself in quitting this. After all, I tried to make up my mind again, at least workout a bit on weekend.
Proudly, I did and I'm glad to have my best companion that keeps me protected from the sun - Sunplay Sport UV Lotion and Sunplay Sport UV Body Mist.

KOSE Lip Gel Magic

I am finally back with a product review after so long! 
Recently, I have come across a magical cosmetic product and I just can't wait to share with all of you. I am sure everyone of us, especially girls used to apply lipstick daily, with or without makeup, applying lipstick just add a little color on the face! It helps us to look fresh and less pale. 

Have you girls come across an awkward situation where the lipstick stains all over your food, tea cup or even clothes??
Here come the KOSE Lip Gel Magic to save us from such awkward situation!
KOSE Lip Gel Magic is known as the most powerful lipstick coating gel.

With only one single swipe, it helps:

  • creating a top coat gel that helps protecting our lipstick from fading off 
  • locking the lipstick on lips so that it lasts longer
  • moisturizing our lips and gives our lips a glossy finish
KOSE Lip Gel Magic
It comes in handy palm tube size, which is just perfect to tuck in our hand bag. The design on the packaging is pretty simple, yet clearly shows its function on lipstick via the reflection of light. Seems like a reflective coat on the lipstick.

Magic Ingredients:

  • Fluorine Coating Powder - Create a gel layer that helps preventing lipstick from migrating onto other surfaces.
  • Squalane and Hyaluronic Acid - Moisture the lips, leaving it kissably-soft
  • Super Lasting Ingredients - Prevent lipstick from smearing and smudging

Texture & Scent:
It comes in a semi-opaque gel texture, without any special scent (Fragrance free)

Direction to use
Step 1: Apply any stick-type lipstick on your lips, like usual.
Step 2: Be sure to shake the magic tube with the cap on, ensuring the gel turns semi-transparent.
Step 3: Pump a tiny amount of gel on the finger tip and swipe it over  your lips.

Obviously, the lip gel magic creates a film-like layer on the lips without drying up the lips. My lipstick turns glossy!
I have did a tiny test on the Lip Gel and the results are surprisingly significant!
It is super duber transfer-proof, leaving no mark or stain behind!

*Tiny tips:
Do not rub your lips together repeatedly or even touching them with fingers.
I really love how the Lip Gel works magically on my lips. It really does a good job in making our lipstick transfer-proof. Meanwhile, it moisturizes my lips and keeping my lipstick long lasting. 

One bad side about the Lip Gel, it's kinda troublesome to apply both lipstick and lip gel on another layer. It is not a good choice if you're in a rush. Yet, it comes in a perfect size that you can carry it and apply it anytime anywhere with just a mirror in hand.

Pantai Klebang, Melacca #BFFgoals

Finally, it's another remarkable trip that marked one of the #BFFgoals with my girl friend, Chency after our last trip to the Capsules few months back! This time, we went to the reknown desert in Melacca! It was claimed as the first desert in Malaysia and named after Pantai Klebang, as Padang Pasir Klebang.

I have to tell that, it's a whole new experience and something really different when you get to travel with your best friend, where both of you sharing the mutual interest and passion. Yeah, not every friendship begins in such easy way, they may not last either. Chency and I started our enemy-ship back in secondary school, hell yeah! We even shouted at each other publicly on social media platform. Now, we are friends for years, we blog together, film video together and we travel together!
Padang Pasir Klebang
So, back to the trip, it was something real quick and short, because I just wanna share the whole experience with you guys and wanted to get my memories recorded down in here!

Why not? It's something memorable and you are travelling with your best friend!
Just to make things clear, we both gave priority to photo shooting while travel LOL.
Depart at 8.30am in the morning from Kepong, it took us about 3 hours to reach Pantai Klebang, with the companion of heavy rain. Luckily, there wasn't any rain happening in Melacca, else the whole trip would be a total fail LOL
It was about 11.30am and we have to walked around 15 minutes to the deserted area after parking our car at the road side. It was so darn hot. OMG. Imagine that this wasn't the real desert yet.
Chency and I were discussing about the famous drama 'Journey to the West' where there's a scene that XuanZhang and his disciples making their way to the desert and volcano area. I meant how torturing to walk under the hot weather, high temperature, like walking on the heaty pot. OMO Getting sun burnt too :( 
Please be sure to put on tons of the sun screen on every single part on your body. 
Pantai Klebang
How amazing that, there was a sort of lake in the 'desert'?  Like a mirage LOL But it definitely adds a little color to the overall pale area, with some bright blue spot at the center, beside the blue sky and occean.


Here are some quick Q&A session that I bet everyone of you will be asking.

How to get there?
Actually it isn't hard to look for the 'desert' at Pantai Klebang, where you just have to waze [Pantai Klebang Melacca] and it will lead you right down to Klebang beach. The desert is just right beside the beach.

Where to Park?
With no choice, but you have to park your car near the grassy lane or beside the road, as you are not permitted to drive in.

How long should you walk?
Around 10-15 minutes to reach the desert hill.

What is the best time to visit?
Early in the morning, around 8am to 10am. Suggested to visit in cloudy day else you gonna injured from sun burn.
Evening, around 4.30pm to 6pm. There isn't any road lighting in the deserted area and it will completely dark when the sun sets.

What to bring?
Umbrella, Water, Hair Tie and Sunblock (for girls), Food (if you gonna stay long for shoot)

Any entrance fee?
No. It's absolutely free.

What to wear?
Whatever you like but please be reminded to gear in your comfy sport shoes, as you gonna walk a mile on the road that filled with stones and then dunes. Anyhow, your shoes will be filled with sand.

Beside the deserted area, there's a so called photogenic place that work best for photo shoot, a view with overgrown thatch and grass that looks exactly like the Korean-ish pictures on Instagram.
Imitating the Korean LOL
It took us about 3 hours to get the photo shoot session done LOL. Then we headed down to the town for some food and of course we would never miss that street shoot again haha!
BFF Goals
That's all about our one day trip. Definitely remarkable but then it makes me pause for my thought of travelling to the real desert LOL
Can I bear with the hot weather? As well as getting tan skin?

Btw, both of us were in our favorite bags, shades and watches from Bonia. You may shop all of them at by coding my name [AMELIEYAP] to get 10% off!

Do feel free to drop me some comment or any questions, I'll be glad to answer you!

Getting Bright Fair Skin with NanoWhite

I bet everyone of us, especially girls has heard about a saying in chinese "一白遮三丑", which mean fair skin tend to cover up a hundred flaws. It used to describe a woman who is always considered to be beautiful as long as she is fair regardless on any other facial flaws.

Beside developing a habit of putting on sun screen daily, a proper skincare regime is essential too. Here's my secret to bright fair skin and yes! Good things come in three! 
In this post, I am going to share about these triple treats from Nanowhite that helps keeping my skin fair, smooth and glowy.
These range of products are packed with a 'Nano Skin-happy' technology that helps open up our pores for better absorption, where the nano molecules are 1000 times finer for deeper penetration to the skin, allowing the instant penetration of Omega White-C, effectively being absorbed and lighten the skin quickly!

Let's get started with the 3 wonder steps and get into the products one by one!

Step 1 : Exfoliate
First of all, be sure to exfoliate our skin weekly with NanoWhite Skin Renewing Aqua Gel. It helps to remove blackheads and dead skin cells on our skin, keeping our skin fresh and silky smooth. 

Price & Size:
RM44.90 | 140ml
The NanoWhite Skin Renewing Aqua Gel comes in a transparent gel texture, which is much dilute and comes with no scent, as it is free from alcohol, coloring and fragrance.
 Pump a tiny amount of the gel on fingertips and gently massage it on your skin in circular motions.
Within seconds, you may see those grey-ish 'dead skins' appearing. Somehow look like the eraser bits LOL
Personally, I would prefer exfoliating gel over any exfoliating scrub that contains granules, as the gel type is much more gentle and non-abrasive to the skin. During the massage moment, there isn't any pain or inflammation feeling on my skin.

Step 2 : Mask
The next step will be treating our skin with NanoWhite Intensive Brightening Mask. Enriched with Grapefruits extract and Sodium Hyaluronate, it helps provide our skin with a boost of moisture and illumination.

Price & Size:
RM8.90 per piece
Apply the mask on face and chill for a good 15 minutes.
It comes with a refreshing scent which is kinda similar to those citrus fruits. Unlike the previous whitening mask that I have used, this mask doesn't cause any inflammation feeling to my skin. Instead, I feel my skin is instant hydrated as well as brighter!

Step 3 : Moist
As a final touch, do apply NanoWhite Double Action Whitening Gel-Cream that helps in ensure the maximum efficacy of delivery of doubled whitening effect, while keeping the skin moisture and smooth. At the same time, minimize the appearance of dark spots.
The Double Action Whitening Gel-Cream comes in a gel, creamy texture, which is much concentrated and heavy.  It contains unique capsules which consists of Vitamin E and C to helps maximizing the brightening effect and combat against oxidation.

Price & Size:
RM39.90 | 40ml
Even though the texture is creamy and concentrate, surprisingly it penetrates into the skin swiftly, leaving the skin with dewy glow finish. 
During the first application, there is slight needle-like pain on the face. I wonder if my skin is real dry/sensitive or any other reasons. But there's no more pain sensation feeling after the second application.
I guess the before and after pictures said it all. My skin turns so much fairer, brighter and glowy after using the products! I really need these range of products badly after my trip to Pantai Klebang, Melacca LOL I turned so much tan! 
I must tell that most of the whitening products tend to be drying, however these Nanowhite range doesn't, it helps boosting the skin moisture! Yet, there is some cons after using the products, where the skin turns slightly greasy after hours. 

That's all for the triple treats!

WANT TO KNOW The Secret To Every Woman's SMILE?

If you guys have been keeping up with my previous posts regarding on my personal life sharing, I guess it doesn't seems like a big matter for me to bring up some intimate talk in this post.

Since we are all adults, I believe that SEX is a no strange word to all of us. As a sexual being, sex is part of our life, an absolute healthy and natural activity, where most of us enjoy. A satisfied sex life contributes to both physical and mental health. For instance, the feeling of love, mood boost, stress relief, as well as fostering the bond between partners. 

However, we don't need a partner to enjoy great sex

Here it goes to the topic of self-pleasuring.
"If we enjoy sexual activities without a partner, we understand and love ourselves enough to give and receive sexual satisfaction to ourselves. Yes, it's quite acceptable, healthy, in fact, to masturbate" - American Sexual Health Association

We take charge of our own orgasm and sexual pleasure!
No one knows us better but our-self. Don't be shy and start exploring! It's normal as there are no rules nor right ways to achieve sexual pleasure as long as you're doing no harm to anyone else. And, you're just finding out what turns you on, to reach the big 'O'. 
Smile Makers Collections
I was so so so excited when I was given an opportunity by Smile Makers, where I am going to own my very first toy!
Smile Maker, is actually inspired by the belief that beauty starts with a smile. Smiling inside out, and nothing is more gorgeous than that. 
The Smile Makers Collection comes with 4 variants of personal massagers, resembling 4 different characters and personalities.

My first impression when I received the items, was like "OMG, how can the vibrators so cute and pastel!" Yeap! Smile Makers personal massagers are feminine, friendly and fun, with pastel colors and fun shapes, that gives you different pleasure.

Now, let's meet them one by one!
The Fireman
THE FIREMAN - A clitoral vibrator that features an intense nose, exhilarating tip and 'soft flames' for extra sensation.
The Frenchman
 THE FRENCHMAN - An oral-sex vibrator that inspired by a French Kiss, resembling a tongue to symbolise linguistic skills, which is super flexible and soft.
The Millionaire
 THE MILLIONAIRE - A classic bullet vibrator that perfectly crafted to mimic sexual intercourse, just the right thing for woman who enjoys both clitoral and vaginal stimulation.
The Tennis Coach
THE TENNIS COACH - A gentle G-spot vibrator for woman who is curious, wanting to explore their sensations. 
 All theSmile Makers Personal Massagers are
  • made of super smooth, cryogenically polished silicone
  •  completely body safe and phthalate free
  • 100% waterproof 
  • quiet-est (minimal sound that less than 40 Mb)
  • comes with 4 speeds and 1 pulsation mode 
  • operated by only one AAA battery (up to 4 hours of fun)
Overall, I love the cute color tone and design of Smile Makers personal massagers as they are real feminine and fun! Super soft and velvet. Besides, they are safe to use, waterproof (shower-friendly and easy to be cleaned) as well travel friendly! These personal massagers are not necessarily for masturbation usage, but couple toys too!
Among the collection, I prefer The Fireman most, it comes with a rousing flame tip that gets all the girls heaty and arouse!

I think it's absolutely normal for us girls to explore our own body, reaching a better understanding of our own sexual needs and responsibilities. With or without a partner, we are in charge of our own sexual pleasure. Self-pleasuring makes us feel confidence, younger and beautiful, as well as leading to a healthy life.
Let's start smiling.

Getting drunk in Japan Sake Skincare | Kiku-Masamune

Do you guys know that 1st of October has been officially known as the World Sake Day? Tom Inoue quoted that Sake Day was made to commemorate the culture and joy in making and drinking Sake, in order to pass down the sake traditions and rituals from one generations to another. 

In conjunction of the World Sake Day, the secret of sake has been revealed, when one of the ancient beauty rituals has been discovered, where geishas used to have the habit of soaking in sake bath for a good 30 minutes. This ritual resulting with geishas' bright and refreshing dewy skin. 

According to Sake Talk, Sake has significant beauty benefits where it helps boosting the skin's moisture, gently exfoliate the dead skin, as well as whitening and anti-aging properties. 
Yeap! We are now bringing the ancient ritual back to life and infusing the sake beauty benefits into this skin care range -- Kiku-Masamune.

FYI, the brewing of Sake involves the fermentation of steam-cooked rice, which consists of hundred of nutrients like amino acids, vitamins, kojic acid and esters.
Kikuma-Samune, it is a company founded in 1659 by a Famous Japan Sake Brewer and now they are bringing the Sake brewing method into this range of skincare products -- Kiku-Masamune, which I will be sharing my very own experience with you guys in this post and we will be going step by step.

Step 1: Cleanse

Be sure to double cleanse our face all the time! Remove light makeup or any impurities on the skin with Kiku-Masamune Skin Care Cleansing. The main ingredients on this product is placenta extract, rice extract and arbutin. Beside using it as a makeup remover, it can be used to remove sunscreen on body too. 

Size & Price:
200g | RM42.90
It comes in a white gel texture which is so light and easy to be spread on the skin. 

I love using gel/balm remover to remove my daily light makeup and sunblock, as it needs not require any cotton or harsh action, where the impurities can be easily removed just using fingers. Surprisingly, this gel remover doesn't cause any irritation or inflammable feelings on my skin. It effectively removes make up and impurities on my skin while maintaining its moisture level. This remover is only applicable for face only, avoid contact with eyes. 

Step 2: Wash
Followed by another cleansing step, will be cleansing our face with Kiku-Masamune Skin Care Wash. It claims to remove sebum deep in the pores, smoothen the skin without leaving the skin feeling tighten.

Size & Price:
It comes in white creamy texture which later turns into white dense foam after lathering with water.
To be honest, I am not a fans of foam facial cleanser, which I have been mentioning over and over again in my blog. Same goes to this. Even though this cleanser cleanses my face well, it leaves a 'film' kinda layer on my skin. My skin feels slimy and I don't really like the overall feeling when I am rinsing off the foam with water. However, it's good as it doesn't leave my skin feeling dry and tight! In contrast, my skin feels hydrated and supple!

Moreover, this product can be used as a full body wash! Multi-usage!

Step 3: Tone
After all, it's time to tone our skin with Kiku-Masamune Skin Lotion.

Size & Price:
500ml | RM42.90
The lotion comes in a dilute liquid texture, like the usual toner.
If you're going for something super moisture, opt for Kiku-Masamune Skin Care Lotion High Moist.

Size & Price:
500ml | RM49.90
It comes in a dilute liquid texture, yet it is much concentrated compare to the normal skin care lotion in Kiku-Masamune range. 
I love the high moist lotion most among this range. Both lotion penetrates into the skin swiftly within seconds, without leaving the skin feeling greasy and sticky. Instantly, I can feel the moist in my skin, which is so refreshing with a hint of sake scent!

Step 4: Treat
Lastly, never forget to treat your skin with KiKu-Masamune Skin Care Emulsion! This product claims to hydrate, soothe, smooth and brighten the skin, while protecting the skin barrier against free radical damages and moisture loss.

Size & Price:
380ml | RM49.90
It comes in a lightweight white milky texture, slightly dilute.
I love how this emulsion works on my skin as it can be easily and quickly absorb into my skin, leaves no stickiness and greasiness. After application, I can feel my skin turns so much brighter, dewy and moisturized!
Besides, it can be used as a body lotion where you can apply anywhere on your dry skin, like elbow and knee.

Overall thoughts
I have read up some blog reviews online where few of the writers have stated that they have been suffering from breakouts right after using the Kiku Masamune range. Yet, there are still writers that loving this product range as they are highly-moisturized.

On my own view, most of the products from this range has a strong sake scent, which doesn't seem comfort to me. It smells like medicine LOL. However, all the products work amazingly on my skin! There isn't any breakouts neither acne on my skin, instead I feel my skin is so much hydrated and bright in complexion!
I should say that all kind of skin care is very much depending on our skin type. The Kiku-Masamune range is slightly acidic (acid pH balance), yet it comes with no mineral oil and color additives.
Last but not least, the price range is absolutely worthy with such huge bottle/volume of product!
If you're a fans of sake, you should never missed this products range! Indulge in the sake scent and get drunk now!

For more information, please feel free to check out Kiku-Masamune products range at Selected AEON Wellness and SaSa stores.
