Yup I'm holding a Givenchy lipgloss, loving it at the moment because it shimmers and taste soooo good lol
Blogging in Malaysia this 2010 year has been a great eye opener. Lots of active bloggers around town and it is great to share all those enthusiasm on skincare and makeup. My SO thought I was the weird one, because of the constant online reading about beauty blogs, but apparently now he realise I am NORMAL lol
Last week, I was invited to be one of the panel to test out an amazing new product by Origins. It is all very hush hush, so I can't really say much about this new product yet, but all will be reveal in due time, as it will be launch world wide in February/March 2011! So I got to keep mumps about this, as I've signed a kinda 'silence' contract.
Anyway, I want to share a cute story before I go into reviewing Origins Skin Rejuvenating Moisturiser.
My SO was kinda feeling concern for me when I told him I was going to a skincare workshop at MidValley on a Saturday afternoon. He felt sometimes things are not that 'too good to be true' and might be something dodgy (we aussies love this word, don't we, to describe something fishy hehe).
SO : Did you pay any money for the workshop?
Elle : Nope, it's an invite, ok.
SO : Your sis going? Anyone I've met going?
Elle : Not that I know of, coz the attendance were not made public to me.
SO : Why is it in this office building in MidValley and not those public cosmetic counters?
Elle : I don't know either.
Usually, stellarvixen would go with me on these kind of events or tammy@miu would meet up there with me. I was curious too, why wasn't they going? Anyhoo, SO accompanied me all the way up to the workshop doorstep, and only willing to leave the floor when he saw it's the real thingy. Actually, I don't like it when he comes along with me to the malls, because he get bored waiting for me and that made me feel really really guilty arghhh I don't like to make him wait and I don't like to be rush >.<
So that's the cute story ^^ kind of irrelevant lol
Origins are actually a sub company of Estee Lauder (I didn't know that, too). Of course, they are also other brands under their belt.
The setting was really nice and posh. Good food, good people, I was all smiles!
The area was decorated really nice, with white cloth over the table and chairs, abit like a wedding reception. Every sitting has our names and folders with info on this new product. Now I know why I was asked to be a panel of testers. I heard from other bloggers that present, was because we are above 30 years old! So the others were underage LOL Age is just a number, I don't really care. In fact, I am extremely glad and happy that I went to meet up with Origins team, as I really learn alot of things from them, about preventing aging and knowledge of our skin.
Well, we are to use this new product together with our suited moisturiser for 4 weeks. Therefore, I am here to review only on Origins Make A Difference Skin Rejuvenating Moisturiser.
This is for combination/oily skin, and that's me. For 50ml, this bottle looks super generous. I reckon it is price RM170, but I am not too sure. Moisturiser are abit pricey but definitely less expensive than a serum.
- Texture: Quite light, I can't be greedy slapping these on my face. Just a tiny amount, it easily spread all over my face.
- Fragrance: Undetectable. So it's good.
- Absorbency: Not that instant.
Like: Very generous amount for a 50ml bottle, I reckon can last me 2 months! No fragrance and it is all organic ^^
Don't like: Packaging, because I like pumps moisturiser because it is more sanitise to use. I need to get a spatula to scoop this, as I don't trust my hands to be completely clean. But then bottles like this, means no wastage.
I feel my face is more oily after using this for 4 days. At night, after putting it on around 8pm, my face is an oil pan by 11pm. Hmm I do hope it does the job of hydration by the end of the week. I am not giving this up!
Okidoki, I going to chomp on my 'tong yun', will show you pics of it in my next post.
Merry Christmas and if I don't see you, Happy New Year!
