IG Spot: Kwai Chai Hong Illuminating Shadows Installation

Had to explore KL's own artistic Insta-worthy spot Kwai Chai Hong when I saw this new Illuminating Shadows installation go up!

When the sunlight hits the holographic pieces, they cast a mesmerizing rainbow on the ground creating a mosaic of pink, blue, purple, green and yellow. What a perfect opportunity to take photos! At night, the area is lit up with powerful spotlights to give a different vibe.

Decided to go all out and dressed up in a matchy matchy cheongsam for this! Personally, I think cheongsams are too pretty to be worn only during Chinese New Year!

Tip: Bring a bigger prop like an umbrella to block out other people in the background and to fill in any empty space.

Vii Nutrition Sakura Collagen and Microalgae Supplement Review

I turned 30 in May. A huge reminder to myself: self-care is important!

Did you know? We start losing collagen at 25! And it's not just for beauty - benefits of collagen include better heart health, faster injury recovery, helps skin ailments, protein deficiency and more.

I was sent these 2 products that will make me feel better inside and out.

Vii Nutrition Sakura Collagen (SC+) review

Vii Nutrition Sakura Collagen (SC+)

Key ingredients of Vii Nutrition Sakura Collagen:

  • Patented sakura extract from Japan
  • VERISOL collagen peptide from Germany (this one's uniquely formulated for skin health!)
  • TetraSOD marine microalgae from Spain (for skin immunity and renewal)
  • Japanese Yuzu Seed Extract
  • Roselle Extract

Benefits of Vii Nutrition Sakura Collagen

SC+ combines 3 patented ingredients and 2 natural extracts to give you brighter, firmer skin with reduced wrinkles. It also promises to improve the skin barrier and skin moisture retention.

Vii Nutrition Sakura Collagen (SC+) in sachet form

Omg look at that pretty colour! Just mix 1 sachet daily into a cup of room temperature water. Very very convenient compared to tubs because you can drink this on the go. Btw, despite what most brands claim, you CAN taste the collagen taste in them. I normally add a bit of ice to make it more delectable. It's almost like a berry drink?

Vii Nutrition Microalgae+ (MA+)

Vii Nutrition MA+ is made from TetraSOD® found in microalgae; it is a natural source of antioxidants, oils, proteins and vitamins straight from the ocean!

Primary vs Secondary Antioxidants

Touted as the first step of healthy ageing, I did ask them what makes MA+ different from other anti-oxidant products in the market.

I was surprised to know that there are 2 types of antioxidants: Vitamin A, Vitamin C etc are all secondary antioxidants. There are only 3 types of primary antioxidants - SOD, CAT and GPX which are what they have in MA+. These are 1,000,000x better at killing free radicals, and in time enhancing our immune system!

Benefits of Vii Nutrition MA+:

  • Improved absorption efficiency
  • Extract in powder form is easy to consume
  • Contains 76 macro- and trace minerals including zinc, magnesium, calcium, iron and more!

Vii Nutrition Microalgae+ (MA+) Sachet review

Unlike the Sakura Collagen, Vii Nutrition MA+ one can be eaten straight out of the sachet without any water. It's a very fine powder that melts almost instantly!

Vii Nutrition Microalgae+ (MA+) review
I take both of these in the mornings before I start work - just gulp down the whole cup so I can make my coffee 😂 I've only been consuming them for about 2 weeks so I'm gonna be honest, I can't see physical change but health is what's inside anyway!

Triumph’s Fit Smart Bra Wins Prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award

Did you know? Triumph's Fit Smart bra has been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Award at this year’s Red Dot Product Design Awards. And it's not even the first time they've won a Red Dot award as the Magic Wire Bra was previously awarded the Best of the Best 2015 award.

Triumph’s Fit Smart Bra Wins Prestigious Red Dot Product Design Award
The Red Dot Award Product Design dates back as far as 1955 and recognises the best products for a given year so this speaks volumes about Triumph's quality.

Triumph’s Fit Smart bra has been developed to physically mould and adapt to women’s individual bodies and the fluctuations they encounter. Its special fabric, secret support system and 4D engineering gives women support and lift, whilst offering the ultimate feeling of comfort as it is literally ‘shaped by them’.

Products from 60 countries were evaluated by roughly 50 international jurors for their design quality and degree of innovation. These specialists in their own fields scrutinised the products entered in the competition in a process that spanned several days and were guided by assessment criteria such as the product’s formal quality, ergonomics and longevity.

Sian Thomas, Global Head of Creative Design at Triumph comments,

We are incredibly proud and honoured that our Fit Smart bra has been awarded the Red Dot seal of quality. We are a company that prides itself on producing high quality design that provides superior fit and support for all women, regardless of their shape or cup size."

"This award-winning product has revolutionised the lingerie market in its ability to adapt to women’s individual body shapes, offering unparalleled levels of comfort that Triumph has become known for and we’re honoured for the recognition awarded to us by the Red Dot Design Award judging panel”.

On the laureates, Professor Dr. Peter Zec, the founder and CEO of Red Dot comments, “The winners of the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2021 were particularly impressive this year. The design of their products is excellent, in terms of both the aesthetic and the functionality. It’s not easy to prevail in such a strong field of competitors and to win over our jury. Consequently, I want to congratulate the laureates very sincerely on their success”.

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser (RM34/150ml)

If you have dry skin like me, it's better to use a gentle cleanser to avoid stripping your face of its natural oils. After all, a cleanser's job is to clean your skin prepping it for the skincare to follow.

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser Review Threebs
It has a very fresh tea tree scent which is great for mornings although I'm not sure why it's specifically for mornings? I use this twice a day without a problem since I double cleanse in the evening anyway.

I was pleasantly surprised that despite having a gel texture, the COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser lathers up very well! There is no 'film' texture after, and my face feels soft and supple after. I have no complaints. Definitely a good try for dry and sensitive skin at just RM34 a tube.

Dr. Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution (RM13/pc)

Facial masks are great for a quick pick-me-up or just as weekly maintenance. Especially after an exfoliating routine, I like to soothe my skin with a hydrating mask like this Dr. Jart+ Vital Hydra Solution mask.

"It contains aquaxyl and xylitol to enhance moisture retention and strengthen the skin's barrier by preventing water loss. Oligo-hyaluronic acid and algae extract supports long-lasting moisturization and supports natural collagen synthesis to keep your skin looking and feeling hydrated and completely refreshed."

Threebs Dr Jart Soothing Hydra Solution mask review
The sheet itself is made with fine cellulose fibre which assists the active ingredients to penetrate deeper into skin. It's very comfortable to use as it's really thin and soft, fitting my face very well. The serum is not very thick so I feel comfortable just massaging it in without needing to rinse. It also has a very nice scent which I guess smells kinda fruity, berry-ly?

COSRX Acne Pimple Master ADF Hydrocolloid Dressing (RM13.50/24pcs)

You've probably heard of the wonders of hydrocolloid patches for acne by now but have you tried them? It's supposed to suck out all the gunk from our pimple and seal it off from bacteria. You can stick one on for up to 24 hours and watch your pimple become flatter and less red!

Thank you Threebs for sending the COSRX Acne Pimple Master ADF Hydrocolloid Dressing but unfortunately I do not have any pimples to test them on?  I was however pretty amazed that the pack contained 3 patch sizes! Choose between 7mm, 10mm or 12mm based on how big your pimple is.

Threebs COSRX Acne Pimple Master ADF Hydrocolloid Dressing Review

Does not come with a tweezer so had to borrow from another brand. I prefer using tweezers as it's cleaner and much easier to apply. You can definitely wear these out because they're so thin and natural! Can you spot it beside my finger??
