LaF Water Bomb Ampoule

ACD12274-DA51-4532-AEA6-2AD1E8BB87EB

Okay, I’ll admit it: I’ve been slacking on my skincare routine. The long work days eat into the time I have to pamper my complexion, and I’ve been tired and lazy. As a result, my skin has been drier and more irritated than usual. To minimize my skin’s discomfort, I’ve told myself that I will do at least a 4-step, bare minimum routine – cleanser, toner, serum and cream. Sheet masks that I do at work don’t count, but I’m thanking my lucky stars and the skincare gods for that blessing. ❤

Let’s start off with my skin type: I have dry combination skin that’s quite sensitive. So trying to find a product that suits all that can sometimes be a challenge. However, I’ve been reaching for a serum in particular pretty often over the last month or so, and it’s the LaF (Lost and Found) Water Bomb Ampoule. LaF is a Korean company that creates products as solutions to beauty problems, so this was perfect for solving my skin’s issues. This pretty little bottle was given to me thanks to The Butterfly Project and Mamasan Tammy Lim, and here’s how it’s fared on my skin thus far!

Okay, you caught me. I guess technically the Water Bomb Ampoule isn’t exactly a serum. It’s an ampoule, which means the product is more effective on the skin either based on the potency or the processing of the ingredients (but I still treat it like a serum, shh don’t tell anyone). It contains a mix of “safe ingredients” that my skin agrees with including aloe vera, sodium hyaluronate (derived from hyaluronic acid), betaine and allantoin to deeply hydrate my complexion while soothing away any redness I might have.

This ampoule comes with a glass dropper to perfectly dispense just the right amount for your face (how classy!), and it sits pretty at a decent 30ml. The thing that I really like about the Water Bomb Ampoule is the way it feels on my skin. It has a slightly gel-like texture when dispensed, but it immediately liquifies and absorbs into the skin. If my skin was feeling tight and dry before, this ampoule immediately soothes the tightness and gives my complexion a boost of hydration. The scent itself is also lovely: a light hint of aloe vera to really punch in that it’ll moisturize your skin!

I like layering this in between my toner and my cream by applying on a generous layer and doing a combination of both massaging and patting motions till it’s totally absorbed into my skin. The result right after is plump, super hydrated skin that I can really appreciate. The hydration lasts on my skin, especially if I top it off with a nice thick cream to seal it all in at the end. With LaF’s Water Bomb Ampoule, what you see is what you get: a product that does exactly what it claims to.

I definitely recommend this to anyone who’s looking for something that will hydrate your skin without the thrills and frills. This ampoule is great for adding onto your skincare, and will be suitable for all skin types. If you’d like to know it’s full ingredients, you can find it on COSDNA. It’s priced at RM47.++ and you can check it out for yourself here.

Sultry Brownie Look (1028 Visual Therapy Brand Review)

1028 Complete look 2

I LOVE to bake. I love everything about it: the mixing, the scooping, the whisking… I love it all (except the washing up, of course). I’m an avid baker of brownies because they’re easy to make and taste absolutely divine: chewy, melty and chocolatey with every bite (here’s the recipe I always go back to, in case you were wondering). So when the opportunity came up to create a look inspired by brownies came up, I knew I definitely had to jump onto that bandwagon ASAP!

My Fat Story: Impulse Studio Asia Experience

I know what you’re thinking: what is this girl doing talking about life things? I’m just here for the beauty stuff. I know, I know, it’s out of character for me, but I feel like this is something I feel strongly about and I’d like to talk about it a little. Let me just start by saying this: I am a fat girl. There, I’ve said it. I acknowledge it, I accept it, I am it. Continue reading “My Fat Story: Impulse Studio Asia Experience”

Mamonde: Honeysuckle First Energy Essence & Serum

mamonde-2

I know, I know: I’m a little late on the K-Beauty wagon. There, I’ve said it. I’ve never been one to indulge in the Korean culture much; I never listened to K-pop, dressed in Korean street fashion or immersed myself in Korean dramas, to say the least. The only thing I was really a fan of was their food (mmm, Korean BBQ anyone?), but something I can definitely see myself divulging into from here on out is K-Beauty. It seems Korean women (and men!) have found the answer to the everlasting conquest to flawless skin, and I find myself expanding both my knowledge and beauty arsenal with K-beauty products to join them on this journey, eager to discover what Korean beauty products can do for my skin.

Get ready to celebrate! #AltheaTurns1

Can you believe that Althea’s already been around for an entire year? Seems like just yesterday I heard about it from my friend who told me about this amazing K-Beauty site and how they ship products that are sold lower than retail price directly from Korea (which by the way, was the thing that got me into it). I’ve since bought myself a few boxes worth of stuff, and this has very quickly become my favorite way to source for Korean beauty products! I won’t lie: it can get very, very addictive. Their great shipping deal combined with the fact that they also have products that are hard to find locally really keep me coming back for more (not to mention that they have some pretty awesome products too). Back to their birthday celebration, naturally for such a great company, Althea decided to celebrate it really big for their first birthday! Continue reading “Get ready to celebrate! #AltheaTurns1”
