STARTER KIT: Help, Is That A Wrinkle?

Wanna hear a secret? Here’s the one myth skincare people don’t debunk. Anti-aging doesn’t actually reverse aging. I know. Shock and horror. The only thing anti-aging products can actually do is prevent you from aging further, not reverse it. That being said, preventative measures (like masks, and such) are much more feasible than fixing any existing damage – see preventative Botox as an example. It’s recommended that one begins an anti-aging regime at the age of 25 (or earlier, if you’re a smoker/heavy user of any substances) but most people disregard that, and only start once the first wrinkle...

WomenFest 2017: An Experience

Right, it’s the first week of November which means that Pink October is over. Don’t stop fighting the good fight (against breast cancer). That being said, the MATRADE building over on Jalan Duta played host last weekend to WomenFest – a shopping and lifestyle festival aimed at women, and the first of its kind in Malaysia. With over 100 local brands featured, it was certainly An Experience (capitals required). I consider myself pretty good with conventions and festivals. Earlier this year, I attended Good Vibes Festival up in Genting Highlands – which was definitely a first for me. I’ve...

Awesome Makeup Sales And Launches That I Can’t Afford

Every time a new product launches, I want to treat myself but my wallet has the stony-eyed glare of a disapproving parent while my bank account screams at me. Can I justify this?
