Catrice Contouring Palette 020 Warm Harmony


I also bought this one from guardian, it's a contouring palette RM21.51 only. The darker shade is a bit too dark for me, can blend to suits with face powder.

2. Touch fingertips of both hands together.
3. Massage serum over face and neck, starting at the center, outward.

My thoughts:
Skin look smoother and younger looking by morning. Liquid is best to pat for better absorb by skin. Use generous amount for better result. Good for anti-aging and anti-wrinkle. It's a good product for hydrate skin as well. Overall a good product if you looking for anti-aging and anti-winkle product. It's better to prevent than repair right. I rate this product 4 over 5 star. Still not impressed enough to rate this product 5 star.

Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate Review

This is a review for Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate. I think Kiehl's came up with the morning version of concentrate due to the popularity of the midnight oil which is one of customers favorite. Below is the product profile:

Product Profile
Product Name: Kiehl's Daily Reviving Concentrate
Origin: USA
Content: 30ml
Price: RM243
Available: Kiehl's Outlet

Lightweight facial oil that keeps skin looking radiant all day
  • Strengthens skin’s defenses against daily aggressors to keep skin youthful and radiant-looking all day
  • Provides antioxidant protection with a powerful blend of naturally-derived oils, including Ginger Root, Sunflower and Tamanu, to help skin feel fresh and look energized morning to night
  • Paraben free, 100% natural origin, Mineral oil free, Non-comedogenic, Non-acnegenic

How to Apply:
-Lightly pat several drops all over face in upward circular motion, avoiding the immediate eye area. Use every morning, after appropriate concentrated serum and before appropriate moisturizer and daily sun protection.


  • Tamanu Botanical Oil helps to reduce the appearance of daily damage as well as replenish and soothe skin; sourced from the nut of the fruit of the Tamanu tree, which is indigenous to French Polynesia.
  • Sunflower Botanical Oil helps to strengthen skin’s barrier; also known to improve skin smoothness, texture and hydration.
  • Ginger Root Essential Oil helps defend skin from free radicals and environmental aggressors with antioxidant protection.

My thoughts:
Light weight, not greasy. Need to pat till absorb properly by skin before applying other skin care otherwise will glide and slight difficult to blend other skin care on skin, since I always rushing to apply it happens, and if I am on the rush, I just skip this concentrate. Haven't been impressed by this so far, I think just complimentary product instead of essential. Since it is also expensive I rate this product 3 over 5. I will not be re-purchasing.

Squalane (Perhydrosqualene or perhydrosqualene vegetal)
A signature Kiehl’s ingredient, Squalane is a botanical lipid that is similar in molecular structure to natural skin lipids. It has an exceptional affinity to skin, and because it’s easily absorbed, Squalane helps restore skin’s natural moisture balance to keep it extra soft and supple.

My thoughts:
At first I tried the sample given and really impressed with the visible appearance of my skin in the morning. Skin look bright, glowy and hydrated. Purchased the full size bottle but the result isn't as good as the sample. Still a good facial oil compare to other brands. Will not be rating this since the full size is not as good quality as the sample - a little disappointing. 

Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel Review


This is a review for Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel. I bought this product due to credit given for facial package. Below is the product profile:

Product Profile
Product Name: Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel
Origin: USA

Content: 250ml
Price: RM197
Available: Dermalogica
Note: 500ml is RM286 

Description on the leaflet:
Soap free. foaming gel cleanses all skin conditions. Refreshing lather throroughly removes impurities without disturbing the skin's natural moisture balance. Calming Balm Mint and Lavender extracts soothe skin, while natural Quillaja Saponaria gently foams away toxins and debris. Formulated without artificial fragrances or colors.

Gently lather a small amount of gel on moistened hands and apply to dampened face and throat. Rinse with warm water and repeat for professional cleansing results. Follow with Multi-Active toner and recommended Moisturizer. For maximum result compliment with other dermalogica products recommended by skin therapist.

My Thoughts:
Face feels clean without drying after using. The gel is clear and without color. Quiet good since not drying but rather expensive. The foam is not that rich since it's soapless. However this product is not impressive enough to attract me to re-purchase, will not be repurchase again. Price is expensive and performance is just regular. Just another cleanser, will not be rating this.

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid Review

This is a review for Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid, below is the product profile:

Product Profile
Product Name: Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid
Origin: Korea
Content: 150ml
Price: RM205
Available: Sephora

This is the description of the product as per Dr. Jart Website:

What it is:
A powerful serum to moisturize the skin.

What it is formulated to do:
This liquid skin saver plumps and seals dull, dry skin for all day moisture. The serum acts as a liquid cushion that strengthens and protects skin barrier from chronic water loss with the power of ceramides. It transforms rough and dehydrated skin into a hydrated, healthy glow.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
This product has been dermatologist tested.

Suggested Usage:
-Apply serum over cleansed skin morning and night.
-Follow with Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream

-Ceramide 3: Provides time-release moisture.
-Licorice Root Extract: Soothes and provides anti-redness properties.
-Portulaca Oleracea and Aloe Vera: Calm irritated skin and hydrate.
-Panthenol: Alleviates and softens skin.

My thoughts:
When apply the liquid on skin, it's better to pad to let the skin to help absorb it better. This is to be used as serum to moisturized skin but it is recommended to use this product along with the Dr. Jart product which called Ceramidin Cream RM239, it's packaging it's like in a tooth paste tube. I use this alone without the cream and it's not that effective for me. I will not re-purchase, it's really expensive in total RM 444 to use this product to achieve the result as said by it (RM205 plus RM239). Wow, I can buy a really good moisturizer with this price. I cannot rate this product since I didn't use the full range as recommended.

Today review is one of Goodal's bestseller products called Goodal Silky Plus Soothing Gel Cream, their other best seller is Super Seed Oil Plus Skin Mist - I did the review - to view click here

As per their product info what so special about this Gel Cream are:
Its made of 7 types of fermented super seeds for moisture protection meaning the skin instantly forms a protective barrier to hold moisture in.  The 7 super seeds ingredients are:

Sunflower Oil - revitalizing
Jojoba Oil - strengthen hydration
Camellia Oil - maintains moisture
Green Tea Seeds Oil - brightens
Argan Oil - elasticity care
Olive Oil - calm sensitive skin
Macadamia Oil - nourishes

The product claims to be fresh, non-sticky and non-oily, aims for quick absorption to skin with soft finish, the firming effect of oil also claims to be anti-wrinkle plus repair skin; it aims to hydrate and brightens skin as well. To be used as last step of skin care routine, to be spread to entire face and neck. The texture is light and easy to apply and absorb by skin.

Product Profile
Product Name: Goodal Silky Plus Soothing Gel Cream Review
Origin: Korea
Content: 50ml
Price: RM88.80

My thoughts:
The smell of this product is so refreshing, it's smells like combination of lemon, green tea... hard to describe but truly soothing and relaxing smell. The texture is velvety and gel like, easy to spread on skin and it glides, absorb easily and hydrating, non-oily and non-sticky. As you can see, I almost finishing the product, it's a good product to add on top of other daily moisturizer product. As for the brightening effect is very little, probably need a longer time to see the result. Overall a very good product to keep your skin hydrated and fresh looking. I will probably buy again when they have promotion price.

Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream Review


This review is for Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream, which is a moisturizer. Got this from a facial package voucher and it cost RM365 per tube of 100ml. Description on the tube stated it's a medium weight moisturizer to balance combination/dry skin. Contained lecithin and aloe gel to nourish while extracts of mallow, cucumber and arnica soothe and hydrate skin - helping to restore suppleness and tone. Antioxidant grape seed extract plus vitamin C and E help shield skin from environments assaults. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens.

Product Profile
Product Name: Dermalogica Skin Smoothing Cream
Origin: USA
Content: 100ml
Price: RM365
Available: Dermalogica outlets

Description on the tube

White color light weight cream

What I think about the product after finishing one tube? Quite decent moisturizer, but still not moisturizing enough for dry skin. For this price, I expected more but turn out cheaper moisturizer also can perform the same, with the same selling point of natural ingredients. I will not be re-purchasing. This is just another expensive product with high end branding. Not worth it.

The smell of this mist is like refreshing essential oil, it's smells light and calming. After finishing one bottle of this mist, I did noticed it moisturized my skin well but not sure about the brightening effect, probably very slight change only. Overall this is a very good face mist. I rate this product 4 over 5 stars because it's quiet expensive.
