How To Reduce Dark Spots In 2 Weeks?


My skin problem is not just pigmentation. As I grew older day by day, hyper-pigmentation occur and eventually darken my skin tone naturally. 

Well if you are still at your youthful age, (WTH! I envy you!) don't think you can escape from dark spots and pigmentation. There are a few factors for dark spots and pigmentation hits you too. 

What cause dark spots?

The number ONE cause of dark spots is sun damage. Sun exposure itself is necessary and beneficial to our health. The harmful UV ray is our biggest enemy. When stimulated by harmful UV rays, melanocytes react by releasing melanin, which acts as a natural sunscreen. However, the sun can trigger the overproduction of melanin, causing the formation of dark spots.

Recently, I discover a solution to reduce dark spots without spending money on laser treatment.

How to reduce dark spots in 2 weeks?

Step 1 : NUViT Dermal White Brightening Spot Eraser, RM72

After cleansing applies NUViT Brightening Spot Eraser on the face and neck. Apply it in the morning and night.

NUViT Brightening Spot Eraser functions as a gentle metabolizer, melanin prevention, enhanced hydration and for soothing and calming. It's a fragrance-free liquid and has a soothing effect when touching the skin.

The texture consistency is translucent and non-sticky liquid. Easy absorption with one application.

This Brightening Spot Eraser contains :

💦 Alpaflor Gigawhite for Illuminating & luminizing

💦 Quadruple Hyaluronic Acid for Spot-reducing and keep the skin hydrated inside out.

💦 Luminosa (Palmaria Palmata Extract)  for Glowing & luminescent skin and ultra-refined skin complexion.

Step 2: NUViT Dermal White Brightening Spot Corrector, RM65

Apply Brightening Spot Corrector after the Spot Eraser step. Just apply a proper amount to the spot area or entire face in the morning only. Then follow with moisturiser and UV protection cream. Personally, I applied more on the targeted spot area for effectiveness.

NUViT Brightening Spot Corrector functions for correcting & perfecting, hydrating & protecting, glowing & translucent.

The texture is beige cream like but very easy to apply and smoothen into the skin. I like that this is fast absorption, non-sticky and lightweight texture. This is fragrance-free skincare.

Minus point because the pump up bottle took more than 30 times to pump out for the skincare to come out. huhuhuh...

This Brightening Spot Corrector contains :

💘 Alpaflor Gigawhite for brightening and even skin tone

💘 Anti-Allergy Restoring Botanical Complex to soothes, repair sensitive skin and strengthen the skin barrier.

If you notice both products contain Alpaflor Gigawhite. This is the natural radiant skin active that keeps skin at its luminous best with a unique combination of 7 precious Swiss alpine botanical extracts that are cultivated organically at high altitudes: - 

🌿 Cowslip - Anti-inflammatory;
🌿 Mallow - Soothing; 

🌿 Lady's Mantle - Antioxidant; 

🌿 Lemon Balm - Calming; 

🌿 Peppermint - Antiseptic; 

🌿 Heath Speedwell - Wound-healing; 

🌿 Yarrow - Antibacterial.

After 2 weeks apply these 2 steps into my skincare routine, I can see a significant improvement in my skin tone and the reduction of dark spots colour intensity. Ideally, for better results,you need to apply this for 2 weeks. Which I am faithfully applying until now with some hope for a positive result on my pigmentation and dark spot area.😆

If you are interested to get your hand on the NUViT Dermal White range, please visit their official website at  

NUViT products are available online too.

I am a big fan of the NUViT skincare range because they bring good skincare products that suit Asian skin.

Instantly Correct the Complexion

I won this by answering the quiz during the Taiwan Beauty Expo end of last year. I end up with 2 bottles of this. hahaha.... talk about the shortage of cream? My skincare can last for another year. I was very sceptical when reading the 'instant' word. Like...' seriously'? Is this another over-claimed item? I love Miss Hana makeup collection but trying skincare except for their mask is like the first time for me.

Since they claimed this is instant correct...then I don't need 2 weeks to try this out. Instant ma! Must work like magic. So one Sunday I was in a good mood and fed up with lovey-dovey Kdrama. I have fun playing around with Miss Hana Brightening Cream to check on their 'instant' claimed to my skin.

Miss Hana Brightening Cream - 30ml made in Taiwan

Product claimed :

  • Skin Whitening and Lightening
  • Instantly correct the complexion
  • Make skin hydrating

Some of the key ingredients in Miss Hana Brightening Cream are :

  • Tranexamic Acid
  • B3
  • Flower Extract

Miss Hana Brightening Cream texture kind of not so easily absorb into the skin. At least on my skin. I need to smooth it out for a while to get it even and better result. The effect was good on the skin though. Love the fact it really does good instant brightening effect to the skin.

As you see in the photo my hand skin colour always darker than the rest of my body. I tested it onto my hand for this review.

See? I purposely didn't apply it on my fingers just to show the difference. The upper part of my hand instantly brighter than fingers part after applying Miss Hana Brightening Cream. It turns out the cream blend well to match up to my face skin colour with my hand. Lovelight Rose extract smells in this cream. It does make your skin moisturizing after long use.

How I recommend to apply Miss Hana Brightening Cream?

Apply a small amount of cream and massage gently onto face. If you don't want to look like Chinese Opera singer, don't use too much for first time user.  As I mentioned it take quite some time to even out this cream on my face. So just patiently massage this cream and the result won't disappoint you! Just look me, it brightens up my skin naturally. It really does what it says by instantly brightening.

Healthy Hand and Nail with Senteurs du Sud

A few years back Argan Oil has been widely used for smooth, silky and healthy hair. Well...that's all I know. Argan Oil gives benefit for hair. Never occur to my mind it beneficial for skin too. hehehe...I need to read more than. 

I read somewhere the main reason Argan oil is healing is because of it is rich with Vitamin A and E. It also packs with antioxidants, Omega 6 Fatty Acid and loneic acid. If apply onto skin it will help to ease inflammation while moisturizing the skin. Now many cosmetics company include Argan oil in high-end anti-ageing, hair and skin care. 

Last few weeks Zash Cosmetics sent over one small tube of Senteurs du Sud Hand and Nail Cream and also few sachets of face cream...haih!

I normally super lazy to even apply lotion to other parts of my skin. Having to try out Hand cream really make me super duper lazy. I tried it anyway on and off because sometimes I totally have forgotten about it.

Tried this hand and nail cream for a week. I won't do a review like any other bloggers who will see the effect after a week trial. Maybe the product is magical for their skin.. I am just a normal person so my skin will not see any effect after I use it for a week. But I still can't review it after many months since the brand will be harping on me. haih!

All I can write here is my experience with this product. Senteurs du Sud Hand and Nail Cream reached me in 50ml tube. They do have the 100ml tube for this too. 

Senteurs du Sud Hand and Nail Cream claimed :

"Enriched with argan oil and honey extract, the hand cream protects, nourishes and regenerates epidermis. It preserves hands youth and softness. Argan oil combined to lemon essential oil strengthens and protects nails. "

My experience applying Senteurs du Sud Hand and Nail Cream :

* Texture - very creamy and a bit sticky at first but it will quickly absorb into the skin.
* Smells - at first I mistook it smells kind of like Almond milk with a zest of citrus sense but I was wrong its a combination of argan oil, honey extract and lemon essential oil. It gives a refreshing smell and awakens the cells of your skin.
* I applied it twice daily and kind of feel it helps to moisturize my hand and my nail feel less dry too.

My takes for Senteurs du Sud hand and nail cream?

I will use in the long run to heal my dry skin. Since I am going through the aging process my nail brittle a lot too. Argan oil as main ingredients to this product really provides healing to dry skin. It does provide softness too.

Senteurs du Sud proudly sent over their face cream in sachet (sample size) for me to write a review. Honestly speaking I really don't favour sample size in sachet form because it will get messy. First of all, we don't open the sachet and finish it off at one go. My face not that big to apply all the cream from the sachet. Second I have to throw it away even after one use because I am afraid it will expose to germs if I leave it opened the pack. Is it that expensive to give the blogger the tube or bottle one for review in exchange? If they give me the small bottle or tube I am happier because can bring for travelling plus it more hygienic.

Senteurs du Sud Face Cream claimed :

Daily care specially designed for sensible and dehydrated skins, the face cream enriched in argan oil, olive oil, grape seed oil and shea butter. With an unctuous and comfortable texture , it nourishes, repairs and restructures the epidermis owing to its anti-free radical effect; the skin recovers tonicity, suppleness and freshness.

My experience applying Senteurs du Sud Face Cream :

I tried Senteurs du Sud face Cream twice during my trip to Labuan. I don't really like the smells and the first feeling after applying this cream. But surprisingly love how my skin does not oily after wake up from sleep. It keeps my skin well moist but not oily throughout the night. I give this face cream two thumbs up! For those who look out for luxurious feel can give this a try.

Will I personally purchase Senteurs du Sud organic skincare range?

Oh! yes....this is one good quality product. You don't have to pay more for such high-end skincare.

About Senteurs du Sud brand 

Tagline : Simply bio , totally ethic, deeply south

Most of Senteurs du Sud products is incorporate organic Argan oil to its range. Every product of the range is certified by Ecocert and Cosmebio. Senteurs du Sud is made from France.

Brighten Dull Skin with Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Foaming Cleanser

Recently, I was invited to join Neutrogena Beauty Squad. I was sent Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Foaming Cleanser as a 'Welcome Gift'. 

Neutrogena is not a new brand name at all. I grew up looking up to my first sister using this brand. So when I first started working , I purchase Neutrogena as my skin care brand. Those day their cleanse is not in foam form but in oil and in the plastic bottle.

Receiving this is sort of refresh back my memory on how my skin care routine begin.

If I am not mistaken for foam cleanser range has 3 variants :

* Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser
* Deep Clean Hyrating Foaming Cleanser
* Deep Clean Brightening Foaming Cleanser

Not sure about the other 2 cleanser , since the one reached me is Deep Clean Brightening Foaming Cleanser has rich and creamy texture. The color is in light beige.

I started using this cleanser since my existing cleanser finished. Just in time! I kind of love the sweet pleasant mild mulberry scents. 

Neutrogena claims that Deep Clean Brightening Foaming Cleanser will gives 2x Brightening power. No doubt if you include this in beauty regime twice a day in longer period. Why I said that? Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Foaming Cleanser has mulberry extract as part of ingredients and this ingredient are clinically proven has whitening vitamin properties in it.

How do I feel after using this in merely one week? 

I feel my skin cleaner and refreshing after one wash. Yes it helps to remove dirt and make up residue. Easy absorption of essence and moisturizer. As brightening effect...I guess need to use this longer to see the effect! So far no skin reaction to my skin.

For your information this cleanser are oil free, dermatologist tested and also non-comedogenic and best you can get this at many well know pharmacy too. Very convenient! As for price....this one at affordable range.

Best-Suited Skincare for Women in 30s

While in 20s we are enjoying our best time in life experimenting some new trendy hairstyles and colors and some of us may be the fashionista while enjoying dating as many possible to get various choice for long term partnership. Flowers are blooming at this age. Who did all this? Sounds like a movie. huh?

Then here come the 30s where all this time things in life will get more serious. Regardless your work , lifestyle and even overall life. 30s women supposed to be in control over life and even relationships. Work is on track with some savings in bank and enjoying the more stable life. Sounds like happy ending...huh?

Natural sometimes can be cruel. Like people always says...nothing last forever. Your youthful slowly faded with age and this is the fact. When you in 30s you can feel your body, skin and looks change. Its not a good change can't smiles to often due to deep wrinkles will began to emerge and faint lines around your eyes will slowly turn into full blown crow feet. I would say....this...been there and still there. Still trying my best to slowdown the whole process of aging. This is the time where we always find excuses to purchase more and more beauty products. WTH!

What kind of beauty products should women in 30s buy? answer this question ,we need to identify the key problems of women in 30s are facing. 

* Fine lines
* Wrinkles
* Loss of skin elasticity
* Collagen

Which product I use during my 30s? See all those blue bottles below? be honest I tried most of it before. I myself a hardcore fan of Hada Labo because of the key ingredient in their products which is Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is important to your skin. Even though this already and naturally in our skin but due to aging process and also our lifestyle this important nutrients in skin slow diminish and the process of producing it slower than time needs.

I was excited when Hada Labo invite me to showcase the new improved lifting and firming range to awaken skin's youthfulness at Roof Top Bar , KL Trillion.

This is the first beauty event I attended in year 2017. Seriously, no joke since 2017 started I never expect that I will be super busy and decline those who invited me. Sorry more important than pleasure at this moment. 

The dress code for that day was White with tinge of red. Gosh!!! do you believe this is my first time wearing white after I finished my high school. All this while my wardrobe look more like grim reaper than angel or princess. WTH!

It was a light drizzle day. But the view and the atmosphere here is superb! Since mingling around with people totally not my cup of tea. So I end up enjoying the breath taking view alone while waiting for the event. 

Well... my introvert moment doesn't last for long. Angie the savior came to save my lonely and awkward moment and Thank God she was also invited. At least I have somebody to chat and laugh that day. Totally glad to see her that day. 

The presentation of Hada Labo's new improved lifting and firming range was done with simple demonstration.

Just tie rubber band on 4 chopsticks to form into square. Tie it firmly! Then try to push and pull the shape. That shows how firm your skin are when you are young. Firm and Elastic! Then untie one of the rubber band from the chopsticks. It lose open right? Everything like almost fall off? Thats shows how your skin sagging over the years due to lack of important nutrients like Collagen and Elastin in your skin while aging. 

The new and improved Hada Labo range has 2 key ingredients :

1. Hydrolized Elastin

2. Hydrolized Collagen

These 2 ingredients works together at cell level to create skin strength , firmness and shape. The Elastin and Collagen are both essential to maintain skin firmness and elasticity. 

This range also infused with Elasgrow and Fermented Soymilk, an exclusive ingredients to boost collagen and elastin production that helps improve skin density, firmness and elasticity to keep skin visibly tighter, firmer and more lifted.

Hada Labo doesn't stop there....this new improved range is also upgraded with 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid to help deeply hydrate skin from the surface to the inner skin layers. for significantly soft, smooth and supple skin. It also contains powerful anti oxidants properties to fight against the damaging effects of free radical.

These are some of the Hada Labo lifting and firming range :

Lifting and Firming Lotion - Rich (RP : RM67.50)

Use this twice daily after cleansing. Gently pat this lotion onto face and let it absorbed.
It will awaken skin ad drives moisture deep into inner skin. To keep it short it helps to ready your skin to absorb whatever nutrients your are putting on next. 

Lifting & Firming Milk Lotion (RP : RM67.50)

Applied twice daily before lotion / essence application . Gently pat on to the face and let it absorbed.This helps to restore youthful radiance and luminosity , leaving skin smoother and visibly firmer. 

Lifting & Firming Essence (RP : RM89.90)

For best results , apply after Hada Labo lifting and firming lotion. This essence is highly formulated with high performance penetrating and deep moisturizing (HPP&M) Technology which has active deliver system to drive moisture deep into skin to fully hydrate skin from the surface to the inner skin layers. 

Lifting & Firming Wrinkle Care Cream (RP : RM74.90)

Use this twice daily after moituring. Just dab onto wrinkle prone areas such as forehead, eyes and lip area.  If you use this regularly the lines will look finer and smoother and helps to renewed skin texture and more youthful.
Lifting and Firming Cream (RP: RM78.00)

Use this after applying lotion / essence. Just take sufficient amount and apply evenly on the face and don't forget your next area too. 

Lifting and Firming Mask (RP : RM52.90)

Use this twice a week. I can tell you this mask is super because you can see the result the very next day. You will feel your skin instantly revitalized, lifted and smoother. The serum soaked mask enriched with anti aging ingredients to deeply hydrate the skin and restore the skin's youthful vitality. 

With this..I hope you don't confuse with Hada Labo products again ya. Just like me previously. Since the writing mainly in Japanese it really confuse me what to what. hehehehe...

Hada Labo brought to you by Mentholatum a well known company with 99 years of history. Hada Labo uses the finest , purest and highly effective ingredients to provide you with ultimate result of beautiful skin.

If you are in 30s, its time for your to be more thorough in your beauty regime. Only use skin care suit to your skin. Ladies keep your skin properly moisturized!

I am not 30s but in 40s.

Tip :

Key of cleansing is not to rub the cleanser for too long. Try to finish the cleansing process as quickly as possible. If you are massaging your face after cleansing..just tap it with finger tips not to rub it!
