First impression : look normal & I dint expect much honestly. 
BUT ... BUT ... BUT ...
It's totally over my expectation from the first try on my face. 
 I couldn't stop using it now
 and I am using it EVERYDAY. 
I've using it for the whole month, me and my family can see a huge change of my skin. 
I've been changing and using all different skincare brands and this definitely gonna be  in my top 3 list .
  why say so? 

packaging is very simple, I hope they can make the packaging more attractive.



First I'm gonna review is 

Skin Essentials
Eye & Lip Makeup Remover (100ml)
RM49

The Neesya Eye & Lip Makeup Remover is a gentle, bi-phase Makeup Remover. It is specially formulated for 3 key actions: 
Whisks off stubborn, waterproof make-up without rubbing or aggravating the delicate eye contour and lip area 
Helps prevent anti-aging with Sunflower Oil, Vit A, C, E, and Pro-vitamin B5 
Conditions and hydrates the skin 

Unlike other & lip makeup removers which just strip off everything - sometime a little too harshly - this gentle but effective makeup remover leaves the eyes area perfectly clean and soothed.
This gentle, bi-phase Make-Up Remover is specifically designed to whisk off stubborn, waterproof make-up without rubbing or aggravating the delicate eye contour and lip area. Enriched with Sunflower Oil for anti-aging benefits of Vit A,C and E. Pro-vitamin B5, conditions and hydrates the skin leaving the eye area perfectly clean and soothed.

My thoughts about NEESYA Eye&Lip makeup remover 
It does remove my make up easily but for those waterproof & long lasting products does require few swipes , overall is good just that I hope they have another type of make up remover which is without oil and instantly remove all make up at once so I won't need to carry 2 different type of make up remover :) 

Pros
- just 1 swipe all my foundation, eyeliner, eyebrow pencil are totally gone.

Cons
-waterproof mascara and ysl long lasting lip stain need double or triple swipes only managed to take off. 
- need double cleanse to remove the oils away 



LumiScience°®
Illuminating Essence (65ml)
RM129

My thoughts about Nessya Illuminating essence : 
This is the BEST essence I've ever used ! Even better then SK II If you ask me. 
It just prefect for my combination -oily skin ! I apply every morning and night , every next morning I can feel my skin is getting better & better . 

PROS 
-SUPER awesome awesome awesome result 
- absorb into skin very fast 
- skin tone more even 
- gave me radiance

CONS

- kinda sticky in the first few minutes

Lumi°®
Brightening Enzymatic Refiner (75ml)
RM69

An effective leave-on exfoliant enhances the appearance of skin clarity, even tone and radiance. Formulated with papain, this gentle enzyme efficiently lifts away lifeless skin cells to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion and encourage cell renewal. Extract of Silver Vine Extract and AlphaMelight™ complement the exfoliation process with skin brightening effects, while Pro-Vitamin B and aloe extract restore hydration to help skin regain its glowing vitality. 

How To Use
Smooth an even layer of over cleansed, dry skin. Ensure even coverage over the face and neck. Apply a thicker layer over stubborn dark spots. Massage lightly in a circular motion for about 30 seconds and leave on for another 3 minutes. Before rinsing off, wet your fingers and gently massage to soften. Rinse thoroughly. Use 1 – 2 times a week for optimum brightening effects.

My thoughts about Brightening Enzymatic Refiner 
I've never use a refiner before, mostly in the market are selling scrubs , but for thin skin people like me 
if use scrubs is too harsh , so I barely use any scrubs. But this refiner is something very similar to scrub and very very gentle to my skin,the feelings is just like apply a layer of mask and massage gently for about 30 minutes leave on for 5-10 minutes , use a wet cotton and remove the refiner, lastly rinse off. 

PROS 
-giving the same effect as scrub ,but this is WAY more gentle .

CONS 
- no? everything is good about this refiner : D


Lumi°®
Brightening Overnight Mask (75ml)
RM99

An intensive overnight treatment mask formulated with Silver Vine Extract and AlphaMelight™. Contains concentrated dose of brightening complex to help diminish skin discoloration, revitalise complexion and restore skin hydration while you rest. Recharges tired skin with essential moisture and anti-oxidants to help skin regain it suppleness, vitality and youthful glow.

My thoughts about NEESYA Brightening overnight mask
one of the BEST sleeping mask! For people who lazy like me, especially tired from work, just apply a thick layer and jump to the bed ! 

PROS 
-convenient ! 
-giving me a brightening , hydration and smooth skin every morning.
-It dint leave any oily or sticky feels after 1 or 2 hours. 

CONS
- slightly sticky on the first 1 or 2 hours .

my fully naked face without any photoshop (add watermark only) & make up camera touch up. 
totally original naked face. 



Me with my recent favorite skin care NEESYA . 
This is really a good brand , everything is beyond my expectation , I'm really glad Malaysia can produce this awesome brand. I'm going to get it from The Mines counter after I finish the whole set !
-from the bottom of my heart-

Hope you like my review!

Love,
ValerieYan

REVIEW - Poreless acne fighter natural mask by THE CANDY SKIN

Hi ladies! 

Today I'm gonna review on this cute pore less acne fighter natural mask by 
The Candy Skin ! 

RM49.90 

Recently my hormone changed and my skin conditions is getting better and better , 
but still redness & pores is still the same, redness is due to my face skin is very thin and pores is due to last time have any knowledge on skin care so my pores getting bigger & bigger : / 

still looking for products to make my pores smaller ,
here I received this Natural mask from my friend,  one of the founder of TheCandySkin ,
the mask came with a super cute pink packaging, it just like a dessert! 


Product Story 
Natural mask is a great idea helps tighten pores, firmer and smoothen skin, as well as reduce acne, acne scars, redness and less breakouts . The clay powder is naturally found and organically mined from ancient deposits deep within the atlas mountains . This extraordinary mineral-rich clay is extracted n large clods, then it gets washed, sun-dried and micronised into a smooth powder. 

*came with a spoon! so cute!!! * 

A great mask is an integral part to any good skincare routine. Face masks help to rejuvenate , detoxify , draw out impurities, accelerate cell renewal, righten, hydrate , smooth and soften skin. With regular use, face masks leave skin glowing and looking its best. Thecandyskin formulated this great natural face max, filled with high-quality ingredients to get the job done. 

the powder is really really fine & smell is just like a natural herbs , 


Ready all the tools you need :
-mask bowl , brush , purifying water / toner 
OR Thecandyskin Rosey Dream mist to have a great effect.  

Scoop 2 or 3 spoons for mask. You may adjust the amount of the size you need. 



*Professional skincare tips : 
IF you have dry skin, add a tablespoon honey or moisturiser, stir well.
IF you have oily skin, you may add a few more drops of lemon instead. 

For me I will use my toner to replace tap water and mix with the powder, it helps smoothen my skin! 


Stir and mix well then put on your face. Leace it for 10-15min, 
spray some mist if you want the mask stay longer. 


After applying this mask, your face will become tighten, amazing whitened, pore less, good oil balancing. It is great to match with their brightening serum. 


Bonus tips : 
after deep cleansing mask you can use cotton pad soak with your toner and leave it for the area that you concern for 10minutes OR apply another sheet of moisturise mask , 
this step will helps your skin more radiant and moisturise !
This is what I'm always do after deep cleansing mask, very Effective ! 
Try it and you'll love it for sure!  


after the mask redness reduced and gave me a very refreshing feels , as for pores tighten I don't think so fast can see the result yet, maybe need to apply few more times :) 


Looking for natural poreless & acne mask you can try this :) 
suitable for pregnant & sensitive skin too! Because it is very gentle and using all natural ingredient . 

Hope you like my review! 

Love,
ValerieYan
