Jurlique's New Nutri-Define Restorative Hydrating Emulsion

Jurlique has just added a latest addition to their Nutri-Define range. Introducing, the Nutri-Define Restorative Hydrating Emulsion. It is perfect for hydration with its luxurious yet lightweight texture that is an alternative to Jurlique's bestselling Nutri-Define Multi-Correcting Day Cream which was launched in 2014.

Nutri-Define Restorative Hydrating Emulsion (50ml) @ RM415
Similar with the rest of the products under Nutri-Define range, the Restorative Hydrating Emulsion is also infused with Biosome5 liposomal technology to targets advanced signs of ageing to help skin feel redefined, revitalised and replenished, leaving your complexion beautifully matte and looking radiant.
Super light weight and absorbs easily on to my skin.

Nutri-Define Multi-Correcting Day Cream
This multi-correcting day cream is slightly heavier in terms of texture compared to the Restorative Hydrating Emulsion. This is great for those who prefer a slightly "heavier texture) for that extra moisture. 

In Malaysia, we could use either one, but in Australia, it's recommended to use both as the climate there is dryer.

Jurlique's ultimate anti-ageing skin care is a scientific breakthrough. This complete Nutri-Define set with Biosome5 targets the advanced signs of ageing including deep lines and wrinkles, sagging and uneven skin texture. The 5 anti-ageing active ingredients that drive the entire Nutri-Define range are Horseradish, Rosemary, Peppermint, Mulberry and Glycogen.

Mentholatum introduces LIP FONDUE

Lip Essence+ Lip Balm+ Lip Mask

Let your lips indulge in a bountiful supply of moisture when you apply the 3-in-1 Lip Fondue, an ultra-nourishing lip balm with high moisturizing performance that gives you 3-in-1 benefits in one single stick. Now with just a glide, you can transform dull-looking lips into gorgeous, moisture-looking ones with natural shine.

The Mentholatum all new Lip Fondue, which comes in two variants, namely the Aurora 3D Pearl Lip Fondue and the Cassis Rose Lip Fondue provides your lip with the following 3-in-1 function:

·         Lip Essence - Enriched with Royal Jelly extract, Honey and Olive Oil that deeply penetrates into the skin layers of your lips to replenish moisture for a firmer appearance.

·         Lip Balm – Enhanced with unique super soft formulation to provide lips with intense     and long lasting moisture.

·         Lip Gloss/Lip Mask- Formulated and enhanced with 3D particles, the Aurora 3D Pearl Lip Fondue can be served as a “lip gloss”. The 3D pearl is twinkling in response to the light to produce a more 3 dimensional lips. On the other hand, the Cassis Rose Lip Fondue can be used overnight as a “leave-on mask” to help moisturise and nourish your lip, keeping it hydrated throughout the night. 

Apart from that, the Aurora 3D Pearl Lip Fondue and the Cassis Rose Lip Fondue also come with sun protection formula that helps protect the lips from UV rays. Both variants are specially designed with dial lock tubes to allow for an easy control of the lip balm at all times. Alternatively, you can apply it on bare lips or on top of a lipstick. To obtain optimised results when using the all-new Lip Fondue, apply 2-3 layers onto lips when needed. 

CP's Tried and Tested Verdict:

Cassis Rose Lip Fondue 

It smells like candy and heavenly. It's colourless but high in gloss. After applying a layer on my lips, I find that it is high on moisture, glides on easily and helps protect and nourish my lips. Word of caution when turning or twisting the content of the lipbalm out. Do not twist vigorously. Do it slowly. Bit by bit because.....I realized once you have twisted the tube out you cannot turn it back in! It only moves in one direction (from left to right). When you try and twist it back it won't go back in. So please twist gently. This applies for both.

Aurora 3D Pearl Lip Fondue
The scent is not as strong and has similar effect that's high in gloss. As you can see from the picture below, it is formulated with some 3D effect filled with fine shimmery gold-dust-like ingredients. It feels like a protective layer over my lips and I love this! Sometimes too tired of using lip balm and lip gloss, this is a great alternative for those looking to try something new.

Out of these two if I can select only one, I would go for the Cassis Rose Lip Fondue as I love the light tinge of sweet smelling candies.

Priced at RM17.90 each, they will be available exclusively at all Guardian Pharmacies in Malaysia.

My Birthday Celebration at Morganfield's and IPC

I am happy I have a group of childhood friends that stayed close to each other even after school days. Some of us have known each other since our primary and secondary school days and our friendship is tested through time. We still celebrate each other's birthdays and find time to catch up although some are busy with their families. I am forever grateful that we're still all meeting and updating each other on our lives. We may not be able to see each other as often as before and some with children coming into the picture, picking a gathering place that is not too over crowded and convenient for kids is a task. In the past we love hanging out at major shopping malls in PJ like 1 Utama. But now with children in the pciture, we prefer somewhere quieter with lesser crowds and child friendly.

This year, I chose to celebrate my birthday with my group of close friends at Morganfield's 

Let me share with you, dear readers, this awesome deal from Morganfields Malaysia which I feel is under-promoted. You will get 1 Year of free sponsored ribs (valued at about RM50 for half slab) x 12 months. You will indeed get back your returns. Untung already. But this deal comes with two criteria. 

In short, the two criterias to meet in order to get the free 1 year ribs are as follow:
1) You will have to throw a feast with at least RM500 spending 
2) and this applies only on your actual birthday or a day before of after your actual birthday (read the fine prints below). They will need your IC to verify.

At the end of the day you the Birthday girl or boy will be given a card like this.
So starting the month after your birthday month, the birthday boy or girl will be able to claim a half slab each month. Note that this card is not transferable and IC is needed for verification. Only the birthday boy or girl can claim. So what am I gonna do with 12x of ribs feast every month? I bring different friends to enjoy it with me!
Here's a hint for that extra savings. You can download the app called offpeak or simply surf to make your bookings in advance. You will get a 20% discount (depending on time and date). This helped me saved almost RM145.00 from this meal. If not, it's RM 729.60. I also met the minimum criteria of at least RM500 spending, hence I got my free ribs for a year! Yay!
More details on offpeak in their facebook page.
You can download the Offpeak app too and enjoy great savings.

Here are some shots taken during my birthday party with my awesome group of friends.
Cute children celebrating my birthday with me. It's so fun to be surrounded by children.
Children running around and enjoying themselves

The platter that we shared. I tell you... It's HUGE!

Another huge platter.
It's great to catch up as everyone knows everyone. I combined two childhood group of friends and some have not met for quite some time.

Morganfields was generous enough to present me with this ice-cream waffle for my birthday.
Once this waffle ice cream arrived, I was surrounded by the children who couldn't resist the so called "birthday cake"

I also brought along two "THE ENTERTAINER" voucher books which was sponsored to me to share with my group of friends. Note the book on the table. Everyone was tearing out vouchers like crazy....The Entertainer voucher offers discounts for Buy 1 Free 1 at selected restaurants and spas. More details at their website

Sharing The Entertainer book. This was taken earlier at the Teh Tarik Place when we had breakfast earlier before Morganfields' lunch. See how happy everyone was with the voucher book.

Friends busy finding their preferred vouchers.
So we went out on my actual birthday and happens to be a Sunday. Just great! Everyone was able to meet up. I went on my rounds to claim some freebies valid only on my actual birthday date. I had drinks sponsored by Juiceworks and Boost Juice. That day we had so much juices minum sampai wanna .......(fill in the blanks here) 

Sharing my juices with my girlfriends.

Then we had a little bit of fun. As a contest freak, I tend to maximise everything. Planned this activity for my dear friends to take a photo for Wah Chan Photo contest. at Ikano Power Centre.
Later I helped each of them to enter. And guess what!!! Luck was on my side. Two of us (me and a gf won for week 2. At least my efforts are not wasted. 
OK! The contest is still on going. Join via the Wah Chan's Facebook link above.
Here are some crazy shots with props that we took.

My winning entry shot!
I felt I fully maximised my day! It was tiring but worth it! Thank you to all my friends who have made my day special. This will indeed be one memorable birthday.
