Happy Valentine's Day! ♥

♫ 冯允谦 - 我好想你

Aaaahhh, the day when you can almost literally see hearts floating around all over the place.

Valentine's Day is here again, and while I won't be presented with a huge bouquet of overpriced roses and a romantic candlelit dinner, I'm still dressing up my nails and planning a cute outfit to have a good evening with my friends. :)

I'm calling this the Valentine's Day Pink Bunnies manicure. (✿◠‿◠)

The bunny glitters are from Etude House's Sweet Idea Bunny Nails set, nail sticker (mid) is from Bloop, and the nail polishes used include those from Dolly Wink, Bloop, Model's Own, Sephora and Daiso.

Happy Valentine's Day! ♥
It doesn't matter if you're happily taken, or single and available; all you need is love, right? ;)

Review: Chu Lip Lip Balm in Arabian, Floral Shower (Purple)

♫ 林俊傑 - 手心的薔薇

Tulip? No, it's Chu Lip! ( ˘ ³˘)♥

With the new Chu Lip, applying lip balm is fun, unique and amazingly kawaii! Mentholatum's latest offering is not only functional and cute, it's also a play on words - 'chu' チュッ means kiss in Japanese, and is the perfect description of this quirky cute lip balm which perfectly kisses your lips. Add to that its fun dome-shaped design and sweet pastel colours, and you'll never forget to apply your lip balm!

Papulex™ Anti-Blemish Gel for Localized Spots

♫ Ed Sheeran - Thinking Out Loud

Have you heard of this brand called Papulex? Prior to its arrival on my doorstep, I had never heard of it, so I did a little bit of Googling and found out a bit more about this brand and their products. Papulex is a dermocosmetic range that focuses on improving skin's appearance, reduce breakouts and pimples, while ensuring skin appears healthy and revitalised, using its unique Power of 3 triple-action formulation.

There are a number of things that can cause acne:
  • Inflammation
  • Acne-causing bacteria
  • Excess oil
  • Blocked pores
The Papulex™ Power of 3 is clinically proven to optimize acne management. Its unique triple-action formula tackles the 3 main root causes of acne (bacteria, sebum, and inflammation of acne), and includes
  1. EU Patented ABA Technology - Reduces acne-causing bacteria
    The ABA (Anti-Bacterial Adhesive substance) technology is unique to Papulex™, and works as a barrier to stop bacteria from attaching to skin cells, at the same time blocking them to reduce infection. 
  2. Nicotinamide - Controls inflammation and calms breakouts
    Early treatment of inflammatory pimples may significantly reduce acne mark and scar risk. Nicotinamide/Niacinamide is a natural molecule derived from Vitamin B3, and has anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce skin inflammation.
  3. Zinc PCA - Reduces skin oiliness and shine
    Zinc is a well-known ingredient used in reducing sebum production. In Papulex products, zinc is combined with L-PCA, which is produced naturally in the body to regulate sebum production without causing skin dryness.

Papulex™ has recently introduced its anti-blemish Papulex™ Gel, a transparent gel that provides intensive anti-blemish skincare for localized spots on face and other small areas on the skin. Fragrance-free and paraben-free, the Papulex™ Gel is suitable for night and day use. It is also non-photosensitizing, meaning that it helps to prevent damage from sunlight/UV rays on the skin.

The gel has a lightweight consistency, and applies clear on the skin. A tiny dot is sufficient for most acne/blemish spots, so you don't have to worry about using it up too quickly. Although it is stated as fragrance-free, it does have a barely detectable, slightly... medical scent. Doesn't affect the gel's functions or bother me in any way, but I figured it needs a small mention. :)

The Papulex™ Gel (40ml) is made in France, and retails at RM52.80. Available at all local and leading pharmacies, as well as selected clinics nationwide.

For optimum acne-management results, the Papulex™ Gel can be used alongside other Papulex™ range of products:
  • Papulex™ Moussant Soap-Free Cleansing Gel (150ml), RM72.50
  • Papulex™ Oil-Free Cream (40ml), RM65.00
  • Papulex™ Lotion (125ml), RM90.00
