September Routine with FYN Professional

Here comes another post-exam blog post to complain on how much my skin was dreading me - be it the dark complexion and the huge lots of blackhead beads protruding on my nose and chin. Even if you're getting enough rest during exams, it's inevitable to say that you spend lesser time in caring about how you look during your exams. 

Most of the time even during exams, I tend to put a little extra effort to put on a little something just so that I don't look dead during exams. Like how my friend would say, to "boost" your confidence a little by putting makeup because you feel better during exams. The logic behind it is legit real hahaha. 

So, just in time for me to try out FYN Professional products while I was at it! Thank you for the test that I was able to hold with the products that I have received. :)

What I've got :


Radiance Enhancing Set - RM79
(Includes Radiance Enhancing Cream + Radiance Enhancing Cleanser)

F.Y.N Professional MicroFiber Face Towel in Pink - RM28

EXTRA INFORMATION : FYN Professional's products are formulated without paraben, artificial colouring and fragrances. For more information, you can check it out on their website (HERE)

So this is how my routine starts.

          #Step 1          

When I get back from uni or even when I'm going off to uni, I'll wipe my face clean with FYN's Professional MicroFiber Face Towel first to remove excessive makeup or dirt on my face. Even when you did not apply any makeup, your skin is prone to have dirt and dust sticking on your face. No harm cleaning. PLUS, your skin will feel so refreshed after.


What I'll do is to wet the towel with lukewarm water, then start wiping off the makeup on face in circular motion and upwards. If you're having thick makeup, I would suggest to wipe your face with remover for those that are waterproof (for instance, matte lipstick / liquid eyeliner) then you can start wiping your face entirely.
Also - if you're worried that it might not remove all your makeup, you can check it by removing again with makeup remover. So far, I've been wearing light makeup and it did removed entirely. So it depends on how much makeup you put on. :)

          #Step 2          

After we're done cleaning our face, it's time for a mandatory double-cleanse. Steps are easy, just lather with water and wash your face. Then rinse it off with lukewarm water.


The texture is gel like, and I've never seen a facial wash that is yellow hahaha. The scent is mild, perfect if you do not like overwhelming scented facial wash.


          #Step 3          
Wipe face clean with face towel after Step 2, then it's time to protect our skin. I was told that the Radiance Enhancing Cream was okay to be applied straight after cleansing, with or without toner. But I am used to my routine therefore, I did use my own toner before applying on the Radiance Enhancing Cream.


Because the cream is very mattifying for me as I have dry skin, so its best to have a layer of toner absorbed on the skin before settling the cream in.



I loveeeeeee this Radiance Enhancing Cream as it definitely saved me on days where I am too lazy to wear any makeup out, this does as what it has been told to do - enhance and provide radiance on skin. Somehow it's a little too whitening at the beginning, but after it sets it looks alright on the skin. :) I prefer to use this in the day than night.

So this is what that has saved me from my usual dull skin. Thank you FYN Professional for this!

Jonlivia - Unisex Phiro Back Support

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Part Two of Jonlivia's products. Previously I have reviewed their products on their Long Active Hot Pants and also Slimmer Shirt Shaper which you can read it from here. While this part, it is going to be solely on the Phiro Back Support. 

The main reason why I'm keeping this as Part Two because I have a lot to say about this product, and my condition that I would like to share that relates to Phiro Back Support and how did it helped me physically. 




//My Condition// 
If you know my personally or noticed the way I walk ( :O ) , you'll notice that I hunch really badly. I guess most people would've noticed it because it's really obvious. Sometimes when I try to pose for pictures, I would unknowingly hunch and it would look really horrible. Here are some of the examples. 
Then the photographer, whoever that is have to tell me to stand straight then I'll feel bad because they had to take more pictures for me. Thank you friends for your patience T-T Some even said I walk like a zombie (lol whut)
I think the major reason why I hunch is because I sit down very often and I find myself changing positions the way I sit down, causing me to hunch even more. Time after time, my hunching became worse and now it's causing me more than just hunching. Sometimes, when I stand up too long, it'll tend to hurt too.


//Why is it REALLY bad to hunch?// 
Other than looking bad in pictures, it's hurting me physically. 

1. If I sit down too long, my back will start to hurt really bad even when I tried to sit up straight. My back will not get used to it then it'll hurt like crazy and I need counterpain almost everyday to massage and ease the pain. 
2. When I go to gym and do some warm ups, YES JUST WARMING UP that involves my back, it'll hurt and I'll go crying on the floor and my friends would just stare not knowing what to say nor how to help ;_; because it's my personal problem. I can't even do some warm ups because my back can't handle them.. 
3. It's really not comfortable to sit for too long, even though I have to sometimes. I can't even sit on the floor for too long because I'll hunch unknowingly, then I'll have problem number 1 arising again. 

Wow I sounded like an ahma, but that's how I lived having hunchback. The problems are more than just that three I mentioned. Plus, if I stay hunchback this way, it's gonna take a toll on me when I grow older. Then I'll live with my back REALLY hunched. Like a few grannies that I met, physically unable to do alot of things because it'll hurt really bad. :(
And how do I feel better? The only way is to lie down on the bed straight, let the pain sets in feel the comfort after, of finally having a support to my back. It'll hurt to lie down at first, but that's the only time my back is really straight.. :(

Therefore, I really thought I should give it a try to Phiro Back Support. Plus, I really loved the Hot Pants that they have which you can see the reviews here

//First Impression on the Phiro Back Support//
It looks promising as the back part has some sort of material to straighten your back, which I love. After trying to put it on for the first time, I really liked it! The difference before you wear and after is visible and instant. I like how it keeps me sitting straight the whole time, as I have a really bad habit of having my legs folded, at some really weird positions that is going to cause more problems for my back because bad posture. So I feel more disciplined with this.

//How to Wear//
(watch the GIFs :D)



1. Put on the Jonlivia Phiro Back Support and extend the wide waist band and pull down and below waist and attach the wide waist band.



2. Extend the smaller adjuster and pull until the tightness is suitable for you and attach the smaller adjuster then you're good to go!

Or you can watch it from here :




 //Results// 

For the 1st-2nd week 
For the first two weeks of trying the Phiro Back, I felt more disciplined. Because most of the time I was on my laptop and I had to sit a lot. So for the first two hours of me sitting down, I would wear this on to support to my back and to "remind" myself that I have to sit straight and so my legs won't misbehave and putting myself in a bad posture. After two hours of wearing, I would be very conscious that I have to sit straight but let's say if I start to hunch again, I would wear it again for like a good 30 minutes to 1 hour as the recommended time is30 minutes a day (but I always go more than that because more is more :p).

I do feel a tinge of pain on my back at times, but it's fine because at least I know it is somehow "straightening" my back for me. I really love how it supports my back really nice and I feel really comfortable whenever I wear it. I was told that it would also keep my tummy in lol. The only down part is that it will make my back sweat. 

I didn't see much changes on my back, but it really did help me to be more conscious when I walk that I'll try not to hunch. Sometimes my bag is too heavy that I tend to slouch sometimes.

For the 3rd-4th week
I did stop a few days because I wasn't home for the whole day but I would wear it when I can. It requires discipline when you wear this Phiro Back Support and you'll see improvement. Slow, but there's definitely a difference. There are days that I did not wear, I tend to slouch too. Then I'll have my friends to remind me not to slouch.

I may have relied on this support alot that without it I would slack a little. But it's all about the consistency of using it. After awhile I did use it and when wear it when I'm exercising. Doing back exercises while wearing the back support will enhance the improvement on your back even better.For me, I can see that my back is getting straighter a little. I might still hunch alot but there is improvement that I can see it for myself. So I will wear it more consistently to see better results.

After all, this product requires consistency and discipline. You'll have to keep wearing it until you get the result that you want.

//Where to Purchase//

Till then, E.

BLAB Lens [CHARIS] Review

Hello everyone!
As we all know how different coloured lenses would make us look compared to our normal lenses. It just brightens up the make up that we apply so much better and take us all to a whole new level. However, it is really tough to find comfortable and nice lenses especially for dry and sensitive eyes like mine, I need to give special attention when it comes to choosing the perfect lenses for me.

(Forgive my very gross grown out nails oops)

Very mocha honey colour-ish for real XD

I’m on the hunt of coloured lenses and just in time, I have my hands on the BLAB lenses and I would love to share my genuine review about them! I got these from Charis in the colour Honey Moccha. 

//First Impression
I love the packaging but I really don’t see why only one instead of two in a packaging. However, It gives a really nice classy feeling and I DO love the packaging, don’t get me wrong! I know how coloured lenses usually comes in bottle form and I honestly prefer in this normal lenses packaging because it’s easier to open also to dispose after.

This is how it looks like. I was told that brown lenses will make the eyes more natural rather than black, which is why I got myself the colour Honey Moccha.



//Close up

//Review
I definitely LOVE this so much! I put it on eye test for a day and I really love it. I’ve never had a coloured lenses so comfortable before and I really loved it. I wished that it’s with my power so I can wear this out.
It looks really natural on me. I don’t always go for a bold look so I don’t need crazy colours. This is just PERFECT as I will be wearing this to uni if there’s power on it. I’ll choose the one with power next time.

//Will I purchase it again?
Definitely, I love how it wears and it is SUPER comfortable. I have really drying eyes and I need to be specially attentive when it comes to lenses as I have issues with them before. Nevertheless, I would definitely purchase this again in time to come and I would rate this a ten. J

//Where to Purchase?
This is from Charis, and you can purchase it from the link here
They will the product from Korea and it’s authentic for sure. You can also read more about it from the link above. There are also other colours for you to choose from.

Also, do check out my shop @ https://hicharis.net/edlynheng for other products there too! 

Thank you for reading this and I hope you enjoyed it!

Keeping Up with Jonlivia - Long Active Hotpants (w/ pocket) & Slimming Shirt Shaper

Today I thought I would like to share some of the two products that I recently been needing to have, which is a hot pants, and also something to make me look slimmer in tighter shirt (at least by a little) which is the Slimming Shirt Shaper that I received. 

The products arrived just in time because I needed that motivation to exercise. No kidding, most of friends have been telling me and reminded me that I have grown fatter. T^T I guess it's obvious since most of them told me that. Some friends would go "Nah, you look better fatter" Lies. 
I did grew fatter because I've been on a really unhealthy diet, and I stopped gym for quite some time now because one semester after another, there are more work piling up and therefore... (more excuses piling up as well)

//Long Active Hotpants 

This semester, I have finally build up my motivation to resume to the 'healthier' lifestyle and having the long active hotpants with me now definitely aids up to my gym routine. Here's why :

It is made with Neoprene Fabric - hence letting you sweat even more than you usually do

One reason why it is recommended that you wear neoprene and exercise because it helps to increase its significant effectiveness due to the quality that will be able to elevate the body temperature to promote fat-burning even more compared to usual jogging pants. 


Tried and tested : I did not expect much from this material - because I assumed that it's all the same and now I get why it is called "hot pants". I like the material because it’s soft and really comfortable to wear. But the down part about the material is that it tends to be thicker hence I look fatter. I would honestly say that this is my personal problem that I need to work out more in this pants so I can see the difference from time to time.


Despite the word “hot pants”, it doesn’t mean that it literally burns when you wear it but it helps you to sweat even more than you realizing it. As it is neoprene material a.k.a synthetic base, the sweat cannot absorb into the pants. I did not know about it at first so I had a shock when I realized I was sweating a little crazier than usual. However, the down side of this material that I had a hard time washing the material because it does not absorb water hence making it hard to absorb anything at all. After a several washes I got the hang of it to handwash it and let it dry naturally. Be reminded that this hotpants is strictly not allowed to be washed in the washing machine. You won’t want to destroy your delicate pants J





PLUS! There's an inner pocket which is really convenient. It's enough for me to put my house keys in instead of holding it in my hands while I run/put cash :)
How to Wash : It's actually very simple but just make sure that YOU DO NOT WANT TO PUT IT INTO THE WASHING MACHINE. It is going to spoil because it is really delicate. What I usually do is i rinse it with warm water and hand wash it. :) It'll dry off in a day after hanging. 

Where To Purchase : Get it for RM188 @ www.JONLIVIA.com and they are always having promo.
Click HERE for the direct link this pants :) 

//Woman Slimming Shirt Shaper 

I don't really have the habit of wearing tight-fitting clothes but when I do, this would help me out alot lol. It's really tiring to suck in your bulging tummy out all the time while you're wearing a tight dress/shirt, so this slimming shirt shaper will help you settle all these hassle and bonus part - gives you a curvy hour glass figure instantly due to the shaper's design.

Other than giving you the shape + sucking all your tummy fats, at the same time it does its job to burn those excessive fats around your tummy. It has self-heating effect eventhough it has a breathable material. It is uniquely design to firm panels while trim and tighten the stomach area.

It has very breathable material, and also it is stretchable. Some shaper tend to be more stiff as they really want you to get the shape but it's gonna take a toll on your body as it will be really uncomfortable. The difference on Jonlivia's Slimming Shirt is that they are very detailed in terms of the lining and quality, so they are wearable for long hours while they have self-heat ability for comfort and slimming effect. 

However, it is advisable to only wear it 2 times a day for 1-2 hours each. 
How to Wash : Hand wash with warm water, but usually I'll just use normal lukewarm water.
Where to Purchase : Get it for RM122 from their retail price RM200 which is really good bargain
Click HERE to direct you to the Slimming Shirt Shaper. :)


These came in for some time now and I have wearing them to try them out. I hereby apologize for the uber late review which I feel really bad about. However, there will be a Part Two which I'm currently preparing on their product, solely talking about the Phiro Back Support for those who hunch alot (me) that will be perfect for you! I will be linking it down below once it's done :D

Thank you for taking your time to read this and I hope you enjoy it!

Glam Eyes with Barbie Eyesland Lenses!

I've only recalled myself wearing transparent lenses because even that, I had to be really careful with choosing the correct lenses for my eyes as I had history with a couple of brands before - And one even gave me corneal abrasion (simplified : it cut my eyeball). After that, I finally found the perfect lenses that did not give me discomfort but I've always wanted to try out lenses with colours despite the trauma :( 

Barbie Eyesland's lenses came in just in time for me because I didn't wanna try out colours that are too crazy (yet) and neither do I wanna buy lenses that are too wide, eventhough they do have the range from 14mm to 16mm :) Also, my eyes are really sensitive and dry so I can verdict if it's really suitable for dry eyes. Envy people with perfect eyes that is okay with any lenses T-T


 // Ordering Process
Ordering was so FREAKING EASY and they make sure to send you notifications on payments, done and tracking of your parcel. If you would like to know how to order, just click here and they'll show you the steps on how to purchase - really love how detailed and informative they are.

I actually wanted to add a "How to Order" steps but it has been clearly answered on their website, it's really that simple!

After payment, I've received the bill in my email, notification on Faceook Messenger and email as well to track my parcel with the tracking number. Super efficient, all happened in less than 12 hours!

In less than three days, I've already received my lenses even though they mentioned it's gonna take three days. 

// Box Opening

I love packaging like these because I like keeping boxes for other stashes huehuehue. Plus, I'm a sucker for pretty packaging so look at how princess-y the packaging of the lenses are! Not only that, they gave me three oreo-looking lens cases. Feeling really spoilt T-T (I buy transparent one also no free gifts like this lor) and also free candies :P

I got myself three pairs in three different colours - Oh My Pearl GREY, Oh My Soul GREY, Oh My Baby CHOCO

1. Oh My Baby Choco

Close shot.


This is the colour that I would wear out to uni/anyway all the time because it looks really natural even under sunlight. This would go well with light/heavy makeup plus in my opinion, I think it did make my eyes look clearer in a way!


2. Oh My Pearl Grey

Close shot. 
(At first I was wondering, why is this even called grey? It's brown what lol! K lah I don't understand the magic k) 


Something I would go for if I'm dressing up slightly better to uni (Because I usually just look sloppy and I'm too lazy to dress up) or even if I don't, I think this would look just fine. It looks really natural under the sunlight but it'll most probably be obvious in different angles. As you can see from the second picture is with lighting (indoors) and there's an obvious grey but still looking natural.  

3. Oh My Soul Grey

When I first opened and placed these lenses I went "OMG THE COLOURS SO PRETTYYYY" I don't think I have ever purchased lenses that has so many colours. I'm amused by coloured lens lol. 

I don't even have to go under the sunlight to show how intense and obvious the colour is!
This is my favourite among the three pairs mainly because it's my first time wearing such an obvious colour but I don't think so I will be wearing it out/ to uni unless I'm going for events haha. However, this will only look flattering on me if I have my full face makeup on, if not it's going to make my eyes bags and dark circles more appealing (eg : picture above) Neverthless, I still love this colour the most because it's really prettyyy!

// Verdict
I opened all of them the night before I tried them on, so I soaked them in the solution for one day. 
Be noted that my eyes are REALLY sensitive and dry. So verdict only comes from me may not be the same for you. 

Comfort Level : 8/10
Drying : A little (but alright after eye drop)
Discomfort : No

I won't say it's 100% comfortable for me because my eyes are more sensitive compared but if you know your eyes well enough and you think you are fine with any lenses, you are good to go! I would still purchase them in future because I really loveeee the colours and I would go back for more after I'm done with these three pairs :) Having a 8/10 is enough for my eyes because I hardly ever gotten lenses that are suitable for me.

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this review. :)

Makan with Loved Ones - Fanpekka Cafe by SDS (Mother's Day Special)

I am so happy that I'm finally up with another food review because most of the time whenever there's food review, I get to meet up with my favourite Ma Cherie girls and it's been a long time since we met. It's a nice feeling whenever you are able to devour yummy food with your friends :')

If you are from JB, I guess you've already visited the new Aeon Jusco Tebrau City which I absolutely LOVE because it changed so much!!! T-T I hardly visit JB anymore since I'm mostly up in KL but having so much changes makes me wanna return to JB even more hahahahaa #hypocrite 


A mini Ma Cherie reunion among us and meet up with new blogger friends! :D
(We tried to mimic A-Li's expression but we just look possessed hahahaha)

Oh look, how much you've changed :'D
Looking crowded because everyone's registering for their bookings for Mother's Day celebration!
I stumbled upon Fanpekka the first time I visited Jusco after renovation and it's the only SDS with Fanpekka and it's in Jusco and I really love how it turned out! This SDS looks entirely different from the rest, which I love. The colour blue makes the entire looking very soothing to dine in heh heh. 

Okayokay back to the topic. Hahaha so I went for food review with my girls, SDS is having Mother's Day set - which you can bring your mom and your entire family for a treat! (Test test for you okay so read on) And if you're planning to bring your mom for a treat, I believe this is gonna be perfect! 


 Thank you for leaving a seat for me! Hehehe (I forgot to bring the card back to paste on my journal T-T) The garlic bread is awesome btw, especially with the mushroom sauce provided ;) And when this happens, of course you need to take some typical flatlay rightt HAHAHA or probably it's just me. 

Huge huge fan of flower tea! I love the flowery tea taste but then again if you wish to have it sweet, they even prepared honey for you to add in. :D Only RM8.90 for this and it's refillable!! If I'm correct, there's Rose tea, Very Berry-Berry tea and also Classic Flower tea, which is this. 

And it's time for the main course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

FAMILY PLATTER 
@ RM49.90 for members (RM59.90 for non members)

 
When they placed this on the table the first thing that I screamed for was the SOUP!!! If you know me well enough, or if you went to a food review with soup with me.. You know how much I love chicken soup LOL, or any soup at all.  (Spot Carinn from the gif :p) 



This is the FAMILY PLATTER @ RM59.90 for non-members while for members it's RM49.90 for 3-4pax. On top it's the Herbal Chicken Soup (which i gaodim most of it because it was so good heh heh) 
While the sides, there are Stir Fried Dried Chili Clam (1) , Shrimp Scrambled Egg (2), Mongolian Fish (3) and Broccoli and Cauliflower Mix Vege (4) with 4 white rice served with the platter. This is perfect because you know how this could eliminate the hassle for moms to cook homecooked dishes when this can make do for it! 

After that, we had a piece of cake each to try out one of cake in the menu. Which I believe this is called Heart of Love. Promise last few pieces of cake k I know I have to go on diet lol. But how to when it's chocolate + cake. This is so yummy!

 Well of course, they have various types of cakes for you to choose - if you wanna order a cake for Mother's Day, or any occasion at all, they have it for you. You can even customize to print your pictures on the cake's chocolate piece if you preorder them. Picture above one of the few cakes that are on the list and on display are Mother's Day and also Father's Day series so if you wish to order for both of your parents, you can do so! :)


Saw some of the other tables customized their cake with their own picture printings on top - which is pretty cool. I've always wanted something like this on my cake since young. While our table, we did not customize anything while the rest did and we were like "Eh look at their cake?!?!?!" LOL #thejakungang Such a beautiful cake isn't it? :'D 

On that day itself, mummies were given flowers from their children to express their gratitude throughout these years. Some even burst into tears. So sorry that I got too carried away with the main course - this was a mini surprise that started it all. :) They were all given a mini present by SDS too!

Us in return, thank you SDS for inviting us to experience all these! Other than these yummy food, we made new friends + mini gathering and also witnessed some really happy times among the same space. (Plus, I REALLY REALLY loved the soup!) 

With A-Li again!

:D 

Oh and for you people who are visiting Jusco/Fanpekka...

Take a picture with A-Li whenever you see him walking around and post em selfies up on SDS' Facebook page (which I will them down below) and you get a chance to win Fanpekka Family One Day Admission Pass (2 Adult 2 Children) PLUS SDS Fun Dining Session worth RM250 per family! Since Father's Day is coming soon in June, why not have it a go? Plus A-Li is so cute. :D (Still couldn't have his expression even after gazillion tries)

I really hope you get to enjoy these with your family. 
Happy Mother's Day and Happy Father's Day in advance! 
[They'll be serving the Family Platter from 1st May to 30th June 2017]
