3:25 PM 0
Was invited to an event last month to learn about 10 step Korean skincare regime by Muse by Watsons using brand/products from Muse beauty store which most of it from CLIV (Cosmeceutical solution Laboratories for 4th skincare) and Cremorlab brand.
Shall intro a little bit about the brand; Muse is a Beauty Premium Store by Watsons, it have 12 exclusive skincare brands and cosmetic products for both women and men in store. Muse not only selling products but having professional beauty consultants, qualified skin specialists and well-trained nail colour service assistants all under one roof to help you and get yourself done for you sweet dates.

CLIV; It pronouns as CL4, not C-Lift all this while I thought it is C-lift till they pronouns it on the event day. hahahah! CL4 is a professional medicial & aesthetic brand where provides a professional skin care customized for each skin type thought the products in 4 stages. From Cleansing to Moisturizing to Ativation and Protection.

Cremorlab; is nature's gift of science. Rich in mineral, high concentration of vanadium and gremanium. T.E.N.(Termal water therapy, Eco energy and Natural nourishment) gives clear, translucent skin and enchance firmness. The name of Cremorlab represent the golden ratio between nature and science.

Come back to the events, it held at Sunway where Muse located. We got our chances to explore the Beauty store and get ourselves skin analysis and makeover by the professional artist. The interior of Muse is really warm and comfortable, the make up table is really pretty with the chandelier on top of it. You can find skincare products, cosmetic, nails products and perfumes. Ladies don't bring your man there cause you will be spending really really really long time to finish looking and buying inside.

They even prepare light refreshment for all the bloggers and this not all they even buy every bloggers Starbucks!! But I didn't order mine cause I don't drink Starbucks cause too sweet plus fat to consume too much sugar and I don't drink coffee.

The pretty model and the make up artist (Rene) will be demo-ing how to stay pretty with 10 steps.

Step 1 - Remove you makeup/Pre-cleanse

"Double cleansing" is encourage to do it for daily, which mean even without make up we should learn to cleanse with make up remover or deep cleansing oil before we go into real cleansing. This step not only for removing or clean make up on our face but it clean away all the dirty with is hidden in our pore.

Recommended products: CLIV Mediskin Cleasing Lotion / CLIV Cleansing Oil

Step 2 - The Cleanse

On the second half of double cleansing will be using mild cream or foaming cleanser depending on type of skin. Korean women usually massage the face gently to increase circulation whichs bring out brighter complexion, I believe most of the women do the same while cleansing but remember not to hurt your skin so do it gently.

Recommended : Cremorlab Foaming Cleanser & Ibling Sonic Pore Face Cleanser set

Step 3 - The Exfoliator

Facial scrub to remove dead skin cells, do it once a week. Focus on areas like visible pores and blackheads on the nose, remember never go rough on your skin. Care it like how you care your baby or your Bf.

Recommended : DHC Facial Scrub / Cremorlab 02 Energizing Mask

Rene showing us the vibration/movement of the Ibling Sonic Pore Face Cleanser in the water, it really quiet and doesn't look like it is on. Prove no harsh abrasive and it is gentle to our skin.

Step 4 - The Refresher

Toner is to balance and restore your skin's pH to allow better Penetration for the nest step, Toning also helps tighten pores.

Recommended : Cremorlab Essence Tonic

Step 5 - The Essence

Essence is the most important step of  Korean skin regimen. Essence is a nourishing liquid concentrate the enchances skin's cellular renewal process, leading to an increase in elasticity, firmness and brighter complexion. Apply product to a cotton and tap to skin. Normally I will skip step 5 and straight to step 9 and also skip step 10 too, due to laziness this explain why my skin is so terrible.

Recommended : Cremorlab Mineral Treatment Essence

Step 6 - The Ampoule

Ampoule is a concentrated active ingredients with smallers molecules for deeper penertration. It works like a treatment to combats skin problems as signs of ageing, pigmentation, excessive oil production and more.

Recommended : CLIV Mediclear Healer Ampoule / CLIV Revitalizing C I2PL Corrector Ampoule.

Step 7 - The Sheet Mask

Do sheet mask care twice a week or more if you have dry skin, this really helped on of my gf who once have terrible skin problem and she started to be really hardworking on doind sheet mask almost every night before sleep and her skin got better now.

The secret to sheet masks; They force your skin to absorb the nutrients and moisture intensity before the product has a chance to evaporate.

Recommended : CLIV sheet masks ( You can get it at Muse by Watsons, they have different type of nutrient for different type of skin and needs.)

Step 8 - The Eye Cream

Eys area are very thin and fragile as to compared to our facial skin, this is why we need to be extra gentle. It is more prones to lines, wrinkles and dehydration. Gently tap products around entire eye to keep area moisturised.

Recommended : Cremorlab Wrinkles Off Eye Cream.

Step 9 - The Moiosturizer

Replemish your skin's hydration and lock it with lightweight emulsion. Use fingertips lightly massages product into face and neck to promote healthy blood circulation.

Recommended : Cremorlab Fresh Water Gel / CLIV Mediclear Cream.

Step 10 - The Night Cream

Final step, apply night cream help lock goodness of serum or ampoule while adding moisture and firming effect. Option use a sleeping pack which is jelly-like texture packed with moisture and many nourishing benefits, leave skin velvety soft and well-hydrated from inside out.

For day time you can skip this step or replace it with sunblock/BB cream before going out.

Recommended : Cremorlab Enriched moisture / CLIV Active Resurgence Wine Capsule Gel / AM+PM 10 Peptide Firming Night Gelly.

This is all about the 10 step of Korean skincare regime, how many step you really did?! For products prices do check it out at Muse by Watsons, they have more range and prodcuts for you to choose.

Why Miam Miam!?

10:59 AM 2
Me and my girlfriends are quite randombitches which we will just randomly out for dinner on a random date, so here one out of our want-to-eat list, Miam Miam ; A French Japanese Artisanal Cafe, Crafted with Japanese Precision and Embodying French Perfection. They first open in Penang and then came into KL, One Utama.

Anyway, Im gonna write my own opinion and my very own review, it will not be a good one because I don't really had a very great dinner as I expected. This is their shop unique interior and comfortable, this is the only marks gaining thing I could say.

They have a very big menu, menu design look great and the foods inside really tempting so I was expecting for superb delicious foods to be serve. I just love fonts, am trying to express how much I love their menu design.

Table with forks knife spoon, we were seated next to the kitchen so we can actually see what happen inside and the chef fighting to finish all dishes. No ears picking or gold digger in the kitchen nor butt scratches, clean. 

The crowd and environment; full house and most of the customers are family. We could see the waiter/waitress walk here and there serving foods cleaning up table serving in new customers and restless worker.

We didn't order any beverage due to their price are a bit pricey and they serve free drinking water. Foods come first selfie come later! SO HUNGRY!! Rule #1 of blogging never blog foods post when you're hungry. ==

#1 - Riz Au Curry

It look so nice but just so so, is like cheese baked rice with curry, the ingredient inside is really simple brocolli, eggs and hotdog for RM26.80. I think it doesn't worth to pay RM26.80 for this, I prefer paying it to KG for their cheese baked rice than this.

#2 - Riz Noir

Their foods just look so good and only by looking it make you drooling around but not really good as what I read from online review. This quite salty and  really oily, the rice taste like normal fried rice which you can eat at hawker centre for Rm5-8. But the prawns and squids consider big and it have 2-3pieces each in this small pot/bowl. You can see how oily it is from the picture, the rice shine! LOL

This cost us ; RM28.80

#3 - Souffle De Nuage

If you plan to eat this please be patient it might take sometime to prepare it, by the time this came 3 of us already half full. This is one of the high expectation to us, we expect it to surprise us after what we ate 2 of the Riz dish. It might look big but actually it not that big portion, everything is come in small but quite filling.

The look did surprise us but not the taste, this is salted souffle the outer baked part quite nice but inside not much people can accept it I'm fine with it but not my girls. Underneath the foam are fried rice same so so with very very normal ingredient like hotdog and it is quite salty and oily as well. This cost us RM28.80 and we are too full to finish it up.

Even Im full I will never leave foods on my plate I will try to finish it unless it taste like trash can, Idontlikefoodswasting. We share 3 dishes and 2 desserts, we are extremely full and couldn't finish the last meal and dessert leave some unsettle. After the meal we couldn't rest before we get out dessert, the waiter just rushed the dessert to us together with the 3rd plate and making our dessert melted after we done eating out main.
A picture before we done our main and right after the staff put on our table, fyi we didnt request to serve it yet and due to it is in a mall so they close time is same as the mall. If so why do they have to ask us do the dessert serve after or before the meal since you don't even allow us time to rest. We know that you're going to close but at least we still have like 30minutes more before closing.

I went to a lot of cafe restaurant and eat till they close but none of them will be like this they will wait us patiently and clean up other thing. They will not purposely rush us or pressure us, for the billing one I can understand but rushing us while we're eating no.

#4 - Apple Gradola Pancake

Seriously nothing to shout about, the pancake not soft it is somehow hard like bread skin or harder. The yogurt/sorbet ice-cream melted very fast due to they served us while we haven done eating our main. The only eatable was the apple, opss you dont need to cook apple for this dessert! *cold-joke

This ice-cream apple on break skin cost us; RM19.80

#5 - Matcha Souffle

This obvious is a souffle nothing shout about it, cause it is cold not hot when we start to eat. We dont like it maybe just not our kind of foods. The outer part is ok ok so so inner part is soft really soft like baby foods. FYI we didn't finish the dessert because already full and not really nice. We just expected too much from here and Overrated food review.

This spongy dessert; RM16.80, I guess the boss is a superstitious Chinese boss because all the price is 80cents and not 90cents. hahahah

This how the Souffle look like after we wanna start eating. So remember to digging once it served.

And the bill came in total damage RM140.40 with service charge and taxes. Three person Three meals and Two desserts cause us hundred plus not worty at all the food and the service not as expected, prices are quite expensive probably cause located in a Mall.

I will not come for second time like serious, their foods disappoint me. RM140 we could go for Korean BBQ for 4-5 people.

Miam Mian located inside One Utama Mall or 1U Mall, near TGIF very easy to see.

Selfie after dinner, let's compare!! Photo capture using TR Casio;

Capture using ZR Casio with flash; What do you think!?
After dinner three ladies went for some light drink and it is my first time going bar with only ladies without and guy with us! LOL. This is no longer my type of life, I used to go club till 5am last time and now 12am is my max and I feel sleepy at 10-11pm. I was once called by all my friends Clubbing Queen or the un-drunk queen or tanker, because I club almost every week once or twice and I could drink anything and not getting my drunk or vomit or I shall said no one even saw me really drunk even my best girlfriend who always drink with me didnt see before and I will not let her see so. HAHAHAHA

As I remember I had a hangover was my 21st birthday and I just vomitted a bit and sleep, no chaos or anything happen I can still say goodbye to every friends, hug them, send them away and still remember what happen. LOL!
