Oryn Premium Skincare Hydrabright Review

Vitamin C skin care

It has been a while ever since my last skincare review. MCO, RMCO or whatsoever. I have been staying at home most of the time. Only recently, out from home. Whether I stay at home or outside the home, I never neglect my skincare routine. I always follow a four-step regime daily without failed twice a day. 

My daily 4 steps skincare routine :

1. Cleanser

2. Toner / Serum

3. Eye Gel / Cream

4. Moisturiser

Recently, I got my hands on ORYN Premium Skincare. I heard about this brand before. ORYN skincare is well known for its 5-in-1 Hydrabright Moisturizer. This will be my first time trying it personally.

The main ingredients of ORYN Premium skincare are Vitamin C which is Orange. I bet many of us know that Vitamin C is good for the skin. Especially for those who are looking forward to having bright and radiant skin.

Let's start a daily skincare routine with ORYN together.

1st Step - OYRN Hydrabright Gentle Cleanser

Acne skin cleanser

Imagine start and end your day with refreshing sweet smells of orange. That's how I feel when trying our ORYN Premium skincare. ORYN Hydrabright Gentle Cleanser comes with a mild foam formulation.

Facial Cleanser for Blemish skin

The gel-like liquid is lightweight and you just need a little bit of water to form a foam-like before applying it to your skin.  I am not sure if you are aware of this, a cleanser with a high foam might be harsh and can cause damage to the skin barrier and eventually cause multiple skin problem. So ORYN skincare cleanser is just nice for your skin.

Best Vitamin C Cleanser

Just massage onto the skin in a circular motion before rinsing it with water. One thing I love about this cleanser is it didn't give that tight feeling after a rinse and pat dry. It leaves my skin less oily,  more supple and fresher. I feel positive about this cleanser already! 

ORYN Premium Skincare Hydrabright Gentle Cleanser contains :

* Multi-Action Vitamin C

It helps to improve the appearance of acne-prone skin. It also helps to even and brighten the skin tone.

* Niacinamide

I bet many of us known the goodness of niacinamide when it comes to pores. If you are having enlarged pores this will helps to minimize pores and reduce acne problems too. In another word give more benefit to help on damage skin.

* Hyaluronic acid + Panthenol

Helps to moisturize and prevents your skin from overdrying or breakout.

* Pentavitin + Sweet Almond Oil

Helps to increase skin hydration and strengthens skin barrier function.

A reminder to apply cleanser according to skin type.

If you have a dry and sensitive skin condition, please do not over exfoliates your skin.

For oily skin, just include double cleansing as part of your daily cleansing routine.


Other than this ORYN Premium Skincare Hydrabright Gentle cleanser is suitable for all type of skin.

2nd step - ORYN Premium skincare Hydrabright Clear Gel

dark spot Treatment

For those who have acne, whitehead and blackhead, this clear gel is highly recommended. This is not a serum or essence. ORYN Hydrabright Clear Gel is a treatment gel for the targeted skin area.

Treatment Gel

The texture is a lightweight and non-greasy gel. It easily absorbs into the skin without much works to apply it. It is specifically formulated with a highly stabilized form of Korean Multi-Action Vitamin C that helps to treat acne and blemishes. This clear and lightweight gel maintains a skin-friendly pH level that helps to reduce breakout.

Helps to control sebum production skin and minimize the appearance of pores.

* Salicylic Acid

Helps to treat acne whiteheads and blackhead at the same time, reduce redness on the skin.

* Niacinamide

It is a type of Vitamin B3 that helps to minimize pores, reduce excess sebum that causes acne and also to even skin tone.

As I mentioned earlier, this is not a serum or essence. This is more like a treatment gel. So just drop a small amount of Iryn Hydrabright Clear gel onto fingertip and apply on the targetted area such as pimple, whitehead, blackhead and dark spot. You can apply it at least 3 - 5 time a day for optimum result. Best if you can consult a physician if you are not sure.

3rd step - ORYN Premium Skincare Hydrabright Moisturiser

Best Vitamin C Moisturiser

This becomes my favourite moisturizer now. This is the star from ORYN Premium skincare hydrabright moisturizer with the hydrating formulation. It contains Multi-Action Vitamin C from Korea with natural orange peel. 

It gives a hydra boost with Whitening complex (Glutathione + Arbutin) :

* Hyaluronic Acid

* Niacinamide

* Pentavitin

* Natural plants 

This is a no greasy and lightweight moisturizer. It provides longer hydration and restores moisturiser in your skin. It flattens away the appearance of dry lines and reduces oil secretions for a supple and refreshed skin with a soft after-feel.

Overall, I have a pleasant experience trying out Oryn Premium skincare for a week now. I kind of love this product experience. Not only it have great ingredients but also can see the visible results on my skin.

Very important note: Cleanse your face thoroughly to prevent skin from trapping dirt that can cause clogged pore or acne.

Why Is It Important to Choose Car Insurance Coverage?


Car Insurance

Owning a car comes with its responsibility. And yes, it's a big responsibility; from the payments to the upkeep, it's a lot to take on. You need to contemplate before committing yourself to buy a car is the insurance that comes with it. You might think of auto insurance as a money-wasting hassle. Just another means to sign a check and never reap any benefits, which is untrue.


Car insurance has saved a lot of people from incurring substantial financial losses when accidents occur. Car insurance protects you from bearing the financial liability that results from an accident or other unfortunate incident. Here is why it's essential to have car insurance coverage.


It's Mandatory by the Law

Third-party auto insurance is the least type of auto insurance. It provides the minimum amount of protection and is legally required in Malaysia according to the Motor Vehicle Act. This type of insurance policy covers damage or loss to the other party if you are at fault. However, there are different auto insurance types that could provide more excellent coverage to you. Since third-party auto insurance is mandatory in Malaysia, you could be subject to fines, a suspended license, high premiums, and even jail time if arrested for driving without auto insurance. This will affect your driving records and insurance premiums for years to come.


Peace of Mind And Financial Security

Aside from the fact that it's compulsory to carry any form of auto insurance in Malaysia, bearing in mind that you have that protection is hugely satisfying and comforting. When you are involved in an accident with another driver, there is always the possibility that you will end up covering the expenses if you are at fault. This is an excellent motive to invest in auto insurance, so you never have to end up bearing the financial liability of another person's injuries or damage.


Protection from the Cost of Repairs

As a car owner, you probably want to have a comprehensive policy on your car insurance coverage. While mandatory third-party policy helps pay for damage to another driver's car, it's essential to have protection for your vehicle too. For instance, what if a heavy storm or flood damages your vehicle? Comprehensive coverage may help pay for the cost of repairs or replacement. You would have to get your car fixed from your pocket without comprehensive coverage.

Final Thoughts

Having the appropriate auto insurance policy in place can go beyond performing a legal requirement. Auto insurance coverage may help protect your car, your purse, your health and even offer peace of mind. Choosing coverage that's right for your needs shouldn't have to be complicated. At FIncrew auto Insurance, we understand the crucial role that auto insurance plays in many people's lives. 


Car insurance may be mandatory by the law, but that doesn't mean it has to cost a fortune. We have provided affordable car insurance rates to people across the country to be insured and have peace of mind.

What Do I Do To Myself?

Disclaimer: This post doesn't intend to berate or even complain about certain parties. This post is merely a writer way to express her feelings towards herself. ....Yeah! That's me. I need a channel to express myself. huhuhuh

I was invited for an interview at the beginning of the MCO 3.0. I was sceptical to go all the way to KL to attend a 6pm interview. If I were talking from my personal opinion as an interviewee or even an HR. My reaction will be...My God! who arrange an interview at 6pm during fasting month for a Muslim candidate? Is this a sign of an inconsiderate employer? 

Talking from the point of an employer who is in the upper hand at this worsens the economic situation, I would rather use my Boss busy schedule than a candidate preference. See? There is always a reason for something right? Trying my best to rationalize. hahaha

As a candidate who accepted such an invitation, she or he should have realized the company working styles from the way the employer handle the interview. So don't dream to have a work balanced lifestyle when you accepted such a job. eheh! Am I in the position to be choosy now?

On the bright side, after went thru MCO 1.0, then MCO 2.0, this is an opportunity not to be missed. I adhere and push myself all the way to KL. I Brave the MRT finding my way to the place after cave myself from the outside world for almost one year plus.

Everything was so foreign to me. I am lucky my touch n go card still hasn't expired yet. 

I was late for the interview because I lost my way miserably. Damn! I would rate myself as 3/10 for taking public transport skill. But I bet it would be worst if I drive that day. Finding parking isn't my skill too. muahahaha

When I reached the interview place, I don't recall, I ever apologize for my unintended lateness. Ish ..ish ...ish...when you are too nervous you tend to forget everything. I was sweating like hell too due to walking far. Damn! staying at home too long. 

I was welcomed by 5 gentlemen in a not so big meeting room. A bit overwhelmed for me to face too many humans out of sudden after a long time hiding in my house. 4 of them didn't wear a face mask and only the big boss wear it. Thumbs up to the boss for adhering to the SOP. As for the rest...mmmmmm....hard to say. Put yourself in their shoes, I would be suffocated to death if you ask me to wear a mask while working all day long. But of course, on another side, they may danger each other too for not following the SOP.

Anyway, back for the interview...during the 1st and 2nd interview, they were looking at me as an Office Manager position but broke the news to the title to the Investment Compliance position. Lucky, I was wearing the face mask. hahahaha...Whoever knows me will understand my non-ability to hide my expression in any situation. hahaha...Gosh!

I have done the compliance position before but more towards HR and Finance statutory compliance. If you are talking about investment compliance it will be something foreign too. I am not afraid to accept the new challenge but this age? I am not very sure with myself to have such ability like the 20s and 30s me. Oh, my dear 40s me? What do I do with you?

I admitted that I am a workaholic but not sure if my capacity like my previous young me. Argh! I don't even want to congratulate myself at this stage. Let me say congratulation to myself once I pass the 6 months. Why bother to celebrate early when I am doubting myself this much, right? Gosh! Do I still have that endurance skills? Goodness gracious, Rina is in negative mode again.

Then as usual people may ask a personal question such as marital status. I am single! Ting!!!!! Jackpot! From the typical Asian point of view, a single woman especially in the 40s, they are someone who doesn't need personal time. They can work anytime. Work late is no problem. You can call them to work Saturday and Sunday. In conclusion, this poor single female employer will rot and devote herself to the company. Really? Yes! this is the real truth in any Asian company. Being single don't have a responsibility and no life. WTH!

You can say anything you want to counter my above view. I would say, get real people. Don't just talk! When you are in the can shut your mouth and accept what offer as it is.

Yes. they did mention working late and weekend too during the interview. I don't speak for myself at all during the interview. Why? I am not in the position to do so. I am not a person who openly negotiate and fight for my right. Fighting for right is not a norm in Asian culture. If I am too vocal it will be a nonsense fighting from my end. When we are in the situation take it or leave it, why make too much noise. Just face it!

Anyway, I was unemployed for more than one year now. I could live my early retirement life frugally and still comfortable. But seriously, retired before 50 years old? I think God will call me faster. I feel useless every day without a career. Those people who wrote an article about retire young, you just need a hobby. WTH! Nonsense. Every day with your hobby? My God! I have done that for more than one year now. I am so'jelak' with my hobby.WTH! For satisfaction sake, I need a job to lead a normal life. At least, could bring back my self-esteem and confidence. I am not even myself for staying home and do what I like for one year plus. I need a new challenge to continue my life. So, challenge accepted!

Back to my new career, I would expect a hectic and no personal me time. Nothing to complain about that. It's my fault for not speaking up during the interview. I am not a Gen'Y who are more vocal and think that they deserve everything their way with the feeling of self-entitled. I am just a Gen-X who just want to continue living on this earth because I am not good enough to face God so soon. In order to live in this world, I need to work as a normal people to earn a living. Because I feel more confident living like that.

Note to me. Rina! be brave and try your best! You can do this for you to stay alive.

To be honest, I am so nervous and feel like losing myself. I guess...too long in the comfort zone. My friend told me to go out more and see more human and live like a normal human. At least to get rid of my extreme introverted personality or I will end up totally shutting myself from the world.

To my future employer, I am just an ordinary woman. My CV looks like I was a workaholic but that doesn't mean I neglect my personal time. I am pleading to give me time to breathe and clear my mind at least one day a week. I will try my best to devote my remaining 40s to your company. If I manage to reach 50 while working for you, that will be an achievement for both of us. Manse!!! Manse!!! (suddenly speak Korean, hahahaha)

Back up plan, if this doesn't work out well. I will just retire as I am doing before this. I will live frugally to ensure my self-sustainable funds. You all think, I rich person, ah?  It's a hard-earned, blood tears savings with lots of sacrifices. isk isk isk...

Reached home around 8:35pm that night. I barely broke my whole day fasting. I don't even have an appetite to even eat or drink. I tried to sleep early but couldn't sleep a wink because my feet keep cramping really bad due to walking too far out of sudden. Super painful night! Haih! 

I am so worried about my back pain coming back again. Dear God, please give me strength and good health. Thank you!

To my Government, who are struggling to manage the country... Don't be lunatic that the unemployment rate is dropping. There are many unemployed like myself. You are focusing in the Graduate section but you tend to not doing anything for the mid-aged experienced people like me. Your upgrading skills program doesn't give us money to survive. Your 'Bantuan Prihatin' don't even reach a good taxpayer like me. Why? Because you assume, a good and consistent taxpayer is a rich person. Amin!!!! Keep continuing with your 'good job' in assuming. Way to go! Just be prepared to be answerable to God in judgement day.

Which Covid-19 Vaccines Should I take?


I am not sure about you but personally, feel confused about the many types of vaccines available. It's not that we are spoiled with choices. It just a matter of what good and suitable for our body. I bet many of us want the best for ourselves and our family. Do you know that the concept now is to take as it is or wait for your turn again? 

When the Malaysian Government announced on the AstraZeneca vaccines will be a giveaway on a voluntary basis, I was sceptical. I can't make the decision at all. While all my family members snatch out the opportunities, here I am still unable to make my own decision. I just can't decide on this at all. Why? Lack of knowledge and so ignorant on getting to know what is what. At least, I want to know where is the origin of this vaccine and the success rate of the trial and much more information needed. Another consideration needed is whether this is suitable for an Asian body since we live in different climates and so on. Did I think too much? Urgh! this is tough for me.

Only now, I have the urge to get to know it further. As far as my knowledge capacity which I gathered the information from my 'google magic work'. I wanted to list it down here for the sake of my personal reference and if my list here benefits others, it will be good too.

Source of information from WIKI

Like I mentioned in earlier this post, this entry is for the sake of my own personal reference since I am personally confused with too many vaccines name. I don't know when will my time to get the vaccines. If the time comes, I can make a better decision on whether to take it or wait for another one.

As for the list of vaccine for covid 19 in Malaysia now, are :

1. Pfizer- BioNtech - origin US

2. AstraZeneca - origin UK

3. Sinovac - origin China

4. CanSino Biologics - origin China

5. Sputnik V - origin Russia

The list may be updated by now. 

I still need to study more about the vaccine types. The terms are too science for me.
