Kleenex : Power of Scent

I love receiving surprise gifts. Who doesn’t right? Alas I don’t receive good surprises often enough so when this box came thru my door from Kleenex, I was a happy lady and couldn’t wait to open and see what it contains.

And it smell good! Yes, you read right. It gave out a good scent! :p

Came with a lovely bow tied to it

What a pleasant find. The first I noticed is that I receive a stem of rose made from tissue. As a craft lover, this is really interesting but I need to find where that lovely scent is coming from….

Aahh… this is the new range from Kleenex where tissues are scented. The two scents that is available now is Cherry Blossom and Rose Essential Oil.  As this is not my first time encountering scented tissues, I am glad that it is available now in Malaysia.

I remember lugging my packets of scented tissues from Hong Kong back home when I was on holiday. Yeah I bought tissues… who would have guessed that! Tissues instead of other souveniers LOL!!!
So back to this Kleenex new range of scented tissues. There’s research that supports the link between fragrance and well-being, as the sense of smell is one of the most direct ways people interact with their surroundings. Do you agree?

I agree for each time I stepped into a spa or a surrounding that has pleasant fragrance, I find that my mood and spirit is lifted up immediately. Even at home I on my diffuser to uplift everyone’s mood. Fragrance I find also gives a calming mood.

Floral scents in particular cultivate a happier, more optimistic outlook and this can have a positive effect on how people interact with others.  With Kleenex now introducing infused rose essential oils or cherry blossom fragrance into its first Kleenex 3-Ply Scented Facial Tissues, one can be sure that you will feel delighted and uplifted using it.

The good news is, you can request for a sample of this brand-new Kleenex 3-Ply Scented Tissues at http://powerofscent.kleenex.com.my. Besides that, join and share your uplifting messages on social media by using the hashtag #KleenexPowerofScent

What do you think you can do with scented tissues to uplift someone’s mood :

  1. Use it when you’re all tired. I’m sure it will give you an instant perk me up.
  2. Use it to cover your nose and inhale as you walk thru areas that you know has unpleasant smell or someone happened to let out a “whoosh” in the cinema seat next to you (wokay! too detailed but you get my drift…) How I wish I have this during the haze period. I would have use it to cover my nose when I walked to the car  park.
  3. DIY something out of it!

I created carnations out of it. Since the tissues are all white, I dab a bit of colour to it so that it stands out.  What do you think of my outcome?

I must say that I enjoyed how soft and lovely the fragrance is. It calmed me down when I wanted to separate the petals (plys) faster.  It is good that it came scented as crafting this became a calm affair!

Now don’t forget to go and get yourself a free sample and try out!

Alcon FRESHLOOK ColourBlends

Have you ever been curious about coloured contact lenses?  They say curiosity kills the cat and it killed me! hehehe….. I took a deep breath and decided to try Alcon’s FreshLook ColourBlends contact lenses on and see how it looked like on me 😛

It really “eye-catching” ain’t it even on brochure those sparking shimmering eyes batting at you. So my curiosity told me to go for something more subtle so that I don’t scare those around me when they look at me in the eyes.

FreshLook ColorBlends contact lens range by Ciba Vision, which is currently known as Alcon Vision Care

Amidst a choice 12 colours available, I opted for the Gray.  My natural eye color is brown thus I wonder how does the gray has it effect on my natural eye colour.

Aish the pics turn out blur when I enlarge the eye area thus one look you see it more like black but I can assure you it’s brown, that’s my natural eye colour.

Spot any difference now? Scroll up and back down a bit to spot the difference.  Yeah yeah, immediate difference with the FreshLook ColourBlends in Gray.  My right eye seemed lighter in shade and bigger now heh….

And now both eyes are with FreshLook ColourBlends in Gray.  Ain’t my “not alive” eyes suddenly became “very much alive” now, best part I love that it made my eyes looked sparkler and bigger!!

Are you curious already to give it a try?  Some facts about Alcon FreshLook ColourBlends :

  • Contain a 3-in-1 Colour Technology; meaning it blends 3 colours into one to create the most natural, subtle eye colour change

  • From the diagram above, you notice that it contains a unique starburst pattern which blends the coloured ring seamlessly into the iris

This is how my pair of FreshLook ColourBlends in Gray looks like.  A real beauty on its own.

Noticed the Outer Starburst, Primary Colour and Inner Starburst? 😀

Bigger sparkler eyes. Inset : enlarged and noticed the colour?

So what does this means to my curiosity?

  1. First it felt comfortable, I don’t feel as tho I’m wearing any contact lenses at all.  Thus moisture is sufficient for me. I wore it for 8 hours.
  2. Easy to put on and take off.  I didn’t have any struggle with the lenses.
  3. Vision was crystal clear.  With the 3-in-1 Colour Technology of Outer Starburst, Primary Colour and Inner Starburst, I didn’t see any shadow whatsoever during my time wearing it.
  4. Love how it enhances my eyes to be bigger and sparkler. From the picture above my usual “sepet” eyes became bigger 😛
  5. Love the reaction when a friend look closer and directly into your eyes and say “Hey, you seem different today.  Your eyes your eyes….. and it became a subject on its own 😛
  6. Definite an “eye puller” and a great “accessory” to have during functions, events and dinner.

12 colours to choose from for naturally beautiful dark or light eyes.  I’m definitely keeping a few on hand for that special occasion!  It’s catered for those with or without vision correction.  The RRP is RM84.00. Look out for it at your usual eye care professional during your next shopping trip.

Bag of Love Jan 2014 New Year, New You

It’s been quite sometime since I last had my  hands on a Beauty Bag. Thus I could not contain my excitement when I had my hands on Bag of Love January 2014 edition of New Year, New You!

It got BIGGER!! A bag that I can use daily to carry my stuff or my kids stuff 😀

Spot the cute girl?  It somehow reminds me of strawberry cupcake!  Oohh well, bottomline is it’s a durable plus cute bag to carry 😛

Now what about the contents? It was heavy compared to the usual beauty bags I have. So here’s a snap shot of what’s inside.

Did you spot full size products? Excited already…  Now let’s find out more on the individual items.

First up is Etude House Wonder Pore After Sun Special Set.  It’s full sized!! whoppee whee….  It’s a 7 in 1 Total Pore Solution which balance your skin, deep cleanse pores, controls your sebum while moisturises inside out of your skin.

from left to right : Wonder Pore Freshner, Wonder Pore Clay Clear (to use once a week) and Moistfull Aloe Soothing Gel

I’m familiar with Wella and have used their products before thus I was happy to see in the bag, it contains Wella Professional Enrich Moisturizing Shampoo and Moisturizing Treatment.

Just the perfect size for me to bring while I’m travelling.  Hey when one travels, one also needs to keep up to one’s beauty regime.  Do you agree? 😛

Then I had a surprised!  I know that Bag of Love had a men’s edition but I was surprised it’s included in this bag.  Here’s Uber Men Whitening Hydra Gel Cleanser + Toner Effect.  I need to add that this is another full sized product!

Hah!! now I can pass this on to my hubby and say “look there’s a product for you as well, ain’t it worth it purchasing Bag of Love” hiks hiks hiks hiks….

I’m waiting for my hubby to try this as he uses cleanser but not toner so am curious to find out how good is this coz it comes with Toner Effect.

These 3 precious bottle came wrap tightly in bubble wrap.  It consist of Alqvimia Body Sculptor Oil, Anti-Cellulite Body Oil and Shape Reducer Body Oil.  All 3 sounds very appealing to me, I need to rid my cellulite, shape and scluptor my body 😛

Never say NO to mask.  It’s important that you have a mask session each week to keep your skin supple and fresh.  Especially in such hazy days, it’s important to have your mask routine.

King of Mask All-In-One Collagen Mask will moisture and nourish your skin giving you that radiant look. Love the additional essence for me to apply on my neck.  Don’t forget your neck area ladies. It’s important to keep that part moisturise as well.

And so these are all the items in Bag of Love January New Year, New You edition.

Bag of Love has changed their subscription from monthly to bi-monthly effective March.  So now instead of receiving Bag of Love every month, you will get it in every 2 months.  The next bag will be delivered mid of April for the Mar/Apr edition.  Best of all, the price remains unchanged at RM39.90 per bag.  How cool is this?

To add on, every purchase from you, Bag of Love will reserve RM1 into the Bag of Love fund.  At the end of each month, the collected fund will go to the underprivileged where you together with Bag of Love will decided which body the funds goes too.
