My Experience with Carbon Therapy at Clinic MF [REVIEW]

Welcoming place, with relaxing ambiance
A while ago, I had my first experience with Carbon therapy at
Clinic MF aka Marie France Clinic at The Boulevard, Mid Valley.

About + Q-SWITCH LASER

FDA-approved, Q-SWITCH LASER is among the most advanced laser technology that cleanses out embedded dead cells , which includes both superficial and deep hyper-pigmented conditions.
Beneficial Key Results includes:
                  ❤ Speed up skin renewal process
                  ❤ Minimize pores, refine lines and brighten skin tones
                  ❤ Effectively treats various types of pigmentation
                       eg: aging spots, melasma and vascular lesions
                  ❤ Tattoo Removal


Starting off with a friendly getting-to-know-you interview session with the consultant
Every individual has different skin needs and this interview is where the right treatment is decided and explanation is being made. I appreciate this session because they do not just look at your skin condition but also on your lifestyle habits, hormonal cycle and rule out other potential health problems that you might be having.

Next, they cleansed my face thoroughly before Carbon Therapy. This is important to remove all impurities on the skin and pores for a cleaner outcome.
Duration: 15-20 minutes

Applying the Carbon followed by some serious work in the next picture.

Oh god, need some S.O.S. chin tuck here orz.
You can see the lazer being applied against the carbon with a hand-held vacumn hovering closely to remove any carbon residual .
Duration: 15-20 minutes
Mask time
There are a few things that you should take note of after the procedure.

                         ♡  DO NOT perform suntan/ Tanning beds
                         ♡  DO NOT apply scrub/ exfoliation procedures for the next 2 weeks
                         ♡  DO NOT apply toner for the first 3days
Completing it with moisturizer and sunscreen
Duration: 20-25 minutes

Always remember to keep your skin well hydrated and protected with skin sheild lotions or gel; indoor and oudoor!

Having said this is my first experience with laser, I was pretty nervous throughout this Carbon Therapy. The entire process was relatively quite fast with (thankfully) no hiccups in between, although I would say the laser part is something that you will need to get used to. It wasn't the painful kind of sharp zap; just mild discomfort when it touches sensitive areas such as the nose, lips and surrounding eyes area. Otherwise, you will just feel slight tingling sensation on the rest of the face. The laser on carbon smell reminded  me of something being barbecued *hahaha*.
I really appreciate the way the therapist comforted me by explaining the things she was about to do and constantly reminding me to BREATH instead of holding my breath (I was nervous, ohkay XD).

The Hydrogel Mask that was applied after the therapy was so cool and soothing that takes away all the stress. Almost heavenly.

It was said that the skin will become slighly dry after the therapy but mine was alright as this actually controls the oil production. It wasn't dry but the perfect skin condition for me. How great would it be is my skin condition was like this forever > < Besides that, you can also resume all daily activities immediately, including wearing cosmetics and normal facial (minus the microdermalabrasion products).

I would say at the end of the therapy, everything is worth it as my open pores becomes so much refined (especially those around my nose areas) and the effect lasted me more than 3 weeks. Given the opportunity, I would definitely come back for a better skin outcome.
Please take all my hearts ❤  ❤ 

Thank you Marie France Clinic and Dr Felicia for the delightful service.

Get bubbly with Bliv O2 Bubbly Bright oxygenating mask [REVIEW]

I am a huge fan of b.liv and their absolute matte facemask is my favourite among all the other beauty ritual (seriously, you have to try it if you got the chance). They have recently launched a new product, the b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright oxygenating mask and today, I am sharing my thoughts on it.

About b.liv
Pronounced as "believe", b.liv was established in 2009 and dereived from a Cosmaceutical brand. b.liv was created to cater to a strong demand for an easy-to-use and affordable personal skin care regime for the youths of today.

Upon uncapping the the b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright container, you will find a inner lid that prevents oxygenation of the mask and a  little spatula to scoop the mask content.

See the red beads? Those are exfoliator beads.
b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright works by purifying + exfoliating + brightening; All in just 1 tube. How the koreans maintained their soft youthful skin was mainly with rice water, which is highly moisturizing and keeps the skin glowing. By infusing oxygen into the skin, it optimizises the absorption of skincare products and revives dull skin.


Foam start bubbling shortly after application on the skin
How to Use b.liv O2 Bubbly Bright mask?
1. Clean your face before applying a thin layer of the O2 Bubbly Bright mask.
2. Leave on for 5-10 minutes, bubbly foam will appear.
3. Massage once more for deeper cleansing.
4. Rinse with lukewarm water and proceed with remaining skin care steps.

More bubbling

[ R E V I E W ]

The texture of the mask was similar to gel. I kind of like their runny texture for easy application over the skin yet not drippy. The bubbles start forming shortly and it's ticklish yet fun to watch yourself  slowly turning into a evil witch! Muahahaha!
Although I couldn't put my finger on what kind of scent, it is actually very mild and rather natural. The exfoliating beads feels really soft and disintegrate at the lightest pressure that means it's not too harsh for the skin and is only meant for light exfoliation.
Please ignore the wide forehead XD
I do not see much of brightening of my skin (maybe I am already fair myself *ahem ahem* or the acne marks are too angry to be subtle >< ) but one thing I like about this O2 Bubbly Bright is it works really well in moisturizing my skin. After washing the mask off, the heart patch area on my cheeks feels really soft and supple as compared to the rest of the face! I also did not feel any skin tightness that usually means overstripping of the skin hydration.

If there is one thing I could change, I definately hope this facemask comes in a pump bottle rather than a tube. Although I kept the inner lid closed tight after using it, not quite sure how it happens but some of the content still will leak out. When that happens, opening the inner lid can gets rather messy and slippery to pry open. Nevertheless, this is a good facemask that is worth investing in.

The O2 Bubbly Bright cost RM99 for 50g and is available at all Sasa and selected Watsons outlets as well as online stores (Hermo, 11street, Lazada & Zalora)

Althea Korea's Petal Velvet Powder [REVIEW]

To all Althea fans, Here's something new!
Althea Korea has finally released it's FIRST beauty product

Juneci Wonderland Review Althea Petal Velvet Powder

This baby arrived early August and was named Althea Petal Velvet Powder
The reason behind her name?

Do you know Korea's national flower is called Mugunghwa aka Althea?
It is actually a hibiscus syriacus species, which is the same as our national flower!

Juneci Wonderland Review Althea Petal Velvet Powder

Althea Petal Velvet Powder is made from none other than the Althea flower, one of the most resilient flowers that contains natural antioxidants to protect the skin barrier from dehydration and premature aging. It also sheilds that skin from UV radiations from the sun. As only natural ingredients is used in the Althea Petal Velvet Powder, it is suitable for all skin types.

The 4 main properties of Althea Petal Velvet Powder includes:
1. Makeup setting & long wearing
2. Micro-fine particles & soft, smooth texture
3. Natural & cruelty-free ingredients
4. Sebum control & pore blurring

Juneci Wonderland Review Althea Petal Velvet Powder
Here is a little seal that needs to be remove before use

[ R E V I E W ]

When I first open the tube, the first thing that impressed me was the floral fragrant. It has the exact smell of a hibiscus which is a nice exchange to the usual powdery smell.

If I thought I knew loose powder well, I was wrong. The texture of the Althea Petal Velvet Powder is so much finer than those I have used before (you would normally be able to feel the fine powder grains with your finger tip).  However, this translucent powder felt very smooth on the skin and due to the finer texture, the powder was able to stay longer on the skin. It lasted me about 6hours indoor (could be longer but I have combination skin).

I supposed the blurring effect works only on those normal skin; it didn't manage to blur out any obvious acne scars I had but helped a little on those open pores. Living in a humid country left us sticky and sweaty by half of the day; Althea Petal Velvet Powder leaves a matte look that looks fresh until it's time to blot and touch up (TBH I hate looking shiny like a mirror, blot and touch up is my beauty ritual).

Weighing at 3g, the amount is lesser compared to other brands but again, looking at the price we are paying for it; Less is definitely more.

Juneci Wonderland Althea Petal Velvet Powder

The mini Althea box will make a good addition to the Althea Box collection.
Plus, it comes with a cute fluffy facepuff

Juneci Wonderland Althea Petal Velvet Powder
At only RM16, I find the price is really reasonable as compared to other loose powder k-beauty products (usually cost more than RM30). As this is @AltheaKorea's first product launch, I shall be looking forward to more affordable natural and cruelty-free beauty products from them
