Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair & Pure Color Envy Matte

The term “Beauty Sleep” has a new and significant meaning in the modern days.

With the increasingly stressful lifestyle, many women, young and old alike are suffering from sleep deprivation. As much as we hate to admit, there is a strong correlation between a good night’s sleep and beautiful skin.

In 1982, Estée Lauder first launched its Night Repair. It was a revolutionary moment in skincare history during which the importance of night being the best time for skin repair was first emphasized. For the past 30 years, the world-renowned brand has continued to revolutionize night repair until to date, their “Little Brown Bottle” became one of the best-selling and best-performing products in Estée Lauder’s history.

Originally, the Night Repair was the first serum ever created in 1982 and the first skincare product to use Hyaluronic Acid. The texture, formula and technology of the Night Repair have remained unique ever since. Today, the new Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II has 25+ patents and patents pending worldwide.

The skin repair products has proven to be effective, Estée Lauder sold over 4.7 million bottles in a year globally!

How to use this amazing product:
1. Apply a drop on each fingertip of one hand.
2. Touch fingertips of both hands together.
3. Massage serum over face and neck, starting at the centre outward.

Stick to this nightly ritual, and sooner or later you will find your skin condition smoother, younger and more radiant.

Meanwhile, check out this Pure Color Envy Matte Sculpting Lipstick from Estée Lauder.

Creamy, matte, intense and pout-provoking.

With merely one stroke, it saturates lips with undeniably daring matte colour!

I am using the crème matte lipstick in Neon Azalea colour. Other colour available:

MHB's 5th Anniversary ft. Cotton On

MHB turned 5 in November 2016! Thanks to Eight Gourmets Gala (EGG), we had a wonderful afternoon tea session to celebrate this significant day.

 Theme of the day: pink and white which happened to be MHB's symbolic colour.

3-tier afternoon tea set! 
We indulged ourselves in the generous serving of food and cider. 

Much joy and laughter with the beautiful girls all these years.

Kerastase 3-Step Haircare Ritual

I am no stranger when it comes to Kerastase products. Growing up with a hairdresser relative, I have been introduced to Kerastase since I was a teen. There was a point of time when my hair got severely damaged after dyeing and perming (everyone must had been through that rebellious teenage stage!). These days, I can safely proclaim that most days are good hair days ^^

For weakened and damaged hair (such as spit ends, loss of elasticity, brittle hair with different lengths), I would strongly recommend Kerastase’s Resistance series (packaging in light green).

Introducing the 3-step hair care treatment:

Step 1: Bathe
Repairing Reconstructing Shampoo – RM90

Apply the repairing reconstructing shampoo to damp hair, emulsify, massage and rinse.

The pro-keratin and ceramid help to rebuild and strengthen the hair fiber from the inside.

Step 2: Treat
2 options under this step. Personally, I would use the masque only on once or twice basis.

Repairing Anti-breakage Cream – RM100
Repairing Reconstructing Masque – RM145

Apply to washed and towel-dried hair. Massage onto lengths and ends. Leave in for 1-2 minutes (cream)/ 5 minutes (masque). Emulsify and rinse thoroughly.

The products are well-known for their regenerating power.

Step 3: Texturize
Resurfacing Reinforcing Milk – RM94

This is a leave-in product that requires no rinsing. Apply to washed and towel-dried hair. Massage onto lengths and ends before you proceed to blowdry.

It protects the hair from heat up to 180 degree Celsius and makes blow-dry 2x faster. Definitely the last but not the least important step!

Good news: you may now purchase a set of Kerastase 3-step haircare ritual from any Kerastase Authorized Salons in Malaysia and claim a free Kerastase Texturizer!

Thank you Kerastase for the fantastic box of hair care goodies!
