Beauty Keeper - skincare review

Received some Beauty Keepers (pun intended) recently just in time for the lunar new year. Beauty Keeper originated from Taiwan and is a platform specially made for people to pick various highly-raved beauty brands and products all from one place.

Beauty Keeper offers premium items, but keep them at affordable pricing by getting products directly from the manufacturers.

Here are a few which I think are worth mentioning! :)

MM/DA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser $52

I'm glad to be introduced to this acid-free and antibiotic-free skincare brand used by dermatologists for oily and sensitive skin. This cleanser serves to achieve maximum oil-water balancing during cleansing. Its exclusive formula that is filled with liposome via advanced technology absorbs oxygen and forms rich lather without any rubbing required! Meanwhile, it also delivers oxygen to our skin that way.

I applied a thin layer above my lips..

The cleanser absorbs oxygen and oxygenates the skin within a minute!

Aurelia Aurita Moisture JellyToner

Researched and produced by Evemed Medical Laboratory, the newest smart technology combines natural ingredients adding ultra-aquatic system to stimulate the skin for better absorption. The toner soothes and softens the skin, while flushing out the pores and minimizing their appearances. The Aurelia aurita collagen maintains a natural protective layer to lock in moisture, repairing dull and aging skin and regaining radiance and transparency.

Bravura Essence Mask

These masks aims to whiten and moisturize the skin - simply apply for 15 minutes to say goodbye to dark skin spots and say hello to bright and even-looking skin!
The refined wood pulp facial mask fits the face gently and almost perfectly. Infused with Arbutin and Tranexamic acid, this mask brightens the skin, promoting a porcelain skin tone.

Luxola - Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care Review

Was happy to receive Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care Regime Set from Luxola recently! Had just been pondering whether to try Clinique products when I was in the US few months ago, cos the prices are slightly cheaper over there. So imagine my excitement in receiving the Clinique skincare set! :)

Clinique partnered with practicing physicians—clinicians—to pioneer the first-ever dermatologist-developed skin care system, Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care Regime: Cleanse with Facial Soap, exfoliate with Clarifying Lotion, moisturize with Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion or Gel. All skins enjoy new transparency, clarity, life from just 3 products, 3 minutes, twice a day.

At Clinique a product is allergy tested 12 times on 600 people; if even one of those 7,200 applications incites an allergic reaction, Clinique will reformulate. All eye products are also ophthalmologist tested.

Read Luxola's e-magazine for more details on Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care Regime Set!


Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care Regime Set consist of Facial Soap, Clarifying Lotion, and Moistuizing Lotion.
I have the set for Type 2 skin which is suitable for normal / combination skin types.

Liquid Facial Soap

Use twice a day, morning and night.

The facial soap is light and lathers easily with water. It doesn't feel drying on any part of my skin at all - which is especially important for non-oily areas like below the cheeks, the jaw, neck, area near the lips, and such. My skin doesn't feel tight after cleansing, but still effectively clean and soft to touch as I swipe my finger across. The facial soap has just a very, very, very faint scent, which is acceptable to someone like me who doesn't like scented products.

Clarifying Lotion

Use twice a day, morning and night.

This works like an exfoliating toner lotion, that should be used with a cotton ball / cotton pad and sweeped over face and neck. It has an exfoliating effect per claim, clearing away deep-trapped dirt or dead cell flakes, which makes my skin appear smooth and slightly glowing right after use. This lotion contains alcohol, just to highlight, but it doesn't dry out my skin or irritates it like some products containing alcohol. Skin is still dewy after the Step 1 Cleanser and Step 2 Lotion :) Just take note to avoid the eye area when using the lotion as the eye area is more sensitive. 

Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion+

The final step in Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care Regime is this moisture "drink" developed by Clinique's dermatologists to maintain optimal moisture balance for very dry skins, or skins dry in the cheeks, comfortable to oily in the T-zone. With a new complex, this formula aims to strengthen the skin's own moisture barrier by 54%. As more moisture stays in., the skin will feel soft and springy.

I love this lotion the most out of the collection because it makes my skin feels really good. This moisturizing lotion is absorbed rather easily into my skin and smells nice. And, most importantly, I can see how it plumps up my skin (not obvious in photos though no photo comparisons) by keeping it hydrated!

Thanks so much to Luxola again for letting me have the chance to try out Clinique's 3-Step Skin Care Set!

One of the attraction for the event was Leela's Fine Chocolates.

Check out their unique Lunar New Year flavors such as Mandarin Ganache Chocolate and Pineapple Tarts Milk/White Chocolate! Absolutely love their signature sea salt caramel chocolate that oozes out fragrant, liquid salted caramel once you bite into it

Even something for the man ;)

Not only were we pampered with fine chocolates, there were also macarons from Hediard Cafe which are so irresistible! I believe I've found a new favourite 

(Mia secretly counted how many I ate T.T Only errrrrr 4? not a lot mah? hor? :X)

After the snacks and drinks, we had Bill, founder of Hat of Cain introduced us to their signature Panama hats and how to wear it correctly!
