Korea Cettua skincare range review



Good day ladies! 
today I'm gonna review on this series of Cettua ~!

The Premium quality with low price !

CETTUA is designed by high quality products and represent the separated product lines through the pattern image and colors.

CETTUA is targeted to the teenager and young generation. In this inspiration, Cettua slogans were made to ‘Clean & Simple’ and
‘More Beautiful’ These slogans are expressed Cettua products Lines.
'Clean & Simple' line is designed by pretty & charming pattern. 


'More Beautiful' line is designed by nobleness pattern. 
I believe most of us have been seeing this products everywhere from pharmacy Malaysia , 


this is old packaging.

and today! they had a brand renewal of all their packaging design! 
came with more series of products and interesting functions ! 


Where you can purchase Cettua products :
-Aeon Wellness 
-Caring Pharmacy

Or
Online 

-Lazada


-Goldencorner Face's book Page ,


You may enlarge it to see the details of the catalog :)
They have a lot of interesting new masks !


look at the mask series! packaging so cute so pastel and every mask came with a 'mirror' , 
it said's 'check your skin here' but I assume that's just a decoration and creative way to let users play with ^_^ 

Total 6 types 
-Pore Control Facial Mask -RM9.90 for 2pcs
-Hydrating Facial Mask -RM9.90 for 2 pcs
-AC Clear Facial Mask -RM9.90 for 2 pcs
-Brightening Facial Mask - RM9.90 for 2 pcs
-Anti-Redness Mask - RM9.90 for 2 pcs 
-Anti-Aging Facial Mask  - RM9.90 for 2 pcs 

I need them all !
 Especially anti-redness , pore control and Hydrating mask 

so here's mine. hahahaha! kinda intertaining :p

Not always can see anti red-ness facial mask in the market, kinda rare though, 
and my face always red on cheek and nose, so I decided to try this, 
so here is the result after 20minutes, it does reduce my redness and overall skin tone is even :) 
I think Anti-Redness and Brightening mask is really suitable who going to attend a big event, 
such as wedding dinner, company event . It'll instantly give you brightening and clam down your skin.   



Silky and clear nose strip charcoal 6pcs for RM9.90

it actually managed to pull out some of my stubborn blackheads too. 
Remember to apply toner after nose strip :D

Here is some interesting patch which I don't see much from market too, 
Hot Body design patch - 6 sachets for  RM59.90
and 
Leg Relax Patch 2 patches for RM8.90 

I've tried the hot body design patch , just stick to the place that you concerned , 
for some part no matter how we exercise also can't get rid of the fats , this should do the trick, 
for uppermost delivery of active ingredients , leave the patch for minimum 4 hours to 8 hours maximum :)

as for leg relax patch is suitable for people who have sore/tired leg after a while day of wearing high heels .
a MUST have item to relax and provide soothing comfort for the tired legs, herbal oils will revitalise your skin while menthol and camphor will cool and reduce swollen areas. 



Half Moon Firming Eye Patch 5 pairs for 18.90

and 

Half Moon Brightening Eye Patch 5 pairs for 23.90

it contains DPHP help to reduce and control fine lines around your eye areas, DPHP makes your dry skin feel moisturise , It can be use for eye, cheek and even forehead ! 


Overall the packaging is simple yet cute and most importantly price is very reasonable too, 
after the new packaging I think is much more nicer and attractive :) 

Hope you like my review! 

Love,

Murad Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo REVIEW

Hi ladies! 
How's your weekdays! Weekend is coming Don't worry :P
After so many skin care review I never wrote any good products for blackheads and pores. 
So today here it is ! 
I know a lot of you are waiting for me to review blackheads products,
Thanks to Murad Malaysia concern about my skin care and send me this awesome stuffs. 
I believe every women in Malaysia have blackheads and pores problem, 
due to the haze, humid hot weather !

so let's get started! 

Murad Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo 
A two-step blackhead and pore clearing treatment, featuring Oxidation Reversal Complex, formulated to help reduce the recurrence of blackheads and seal pores for the ultimate protection against pore-clogging impurities.

Retail price : RM268 
where can you get it ? 
You can visit any Sephora outlet to purchase Murad products :) 
OR 
you can online purchase it ! 

Murad Malaysia Facebook Page 

-Extracts stubborn impurities from deep within pores 
-reduces the formation of blackheads by an average of 58% 

THE BENEFITS
Fast-acting 2-step treatment helps reduce blackheads and seal pores for the ultimate protection against pore-clogging impurities.


HOW TO USE
Use Blackhead & Pore Clearing Duo 2-3 times per week as needed.



The texture is like creamy type with a bit of little scrubs in it. 
No weird smell , no artificial perfume smell as well :D

I know! I know I look silly here , haha
so I just applied on my T zone area , and my jaw area. 
No need to be very thick , just make sure cover the whole area will do. 
Remember! apply when your face is totally dry! 


Apply generously to areas prone to blackheads, Leave on for up to 10 minutes . Add warm water and gently massage into skin to exfoliate. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. 

After 1 week 
you can see my nose smoother and the whiteheads / blackheads reduced a lot! 
I din't realize untill I put this two pictures compared together. 
That's amazing! 

Step 2 ! Pore Refining Sealer 

the texture is light and creamy , It does gave me a minty fresh sensation. 

Immediately following use of blackhead remover, apply a thin layer to entire face . To help prevent future blackheads, apply a second layer 12 hours after initial treatment.
Follow with a moisturiser after each application.  



After 2 weeks (total 5 apply's ) 
My nose ! is shinning! It still with a bit of blackheads somehow, 
but i'm already very satisfied with the result after 2 weeks, 
Best of all my pores is smaller ,  honestly I like the pore sealer very very much. 
It really gave me a tighten feels after each application. 
Yes my nose is much cleaner now, but it doesn't mean I can stop using it now,
you still have to maintain it :) 

Goods
-effective 
-professional packaging
-clear instruction manual 
-easy to use 

the only things I wish Murad can improve this product is ...I hope the this set came with a mini small spatular for us , for hygiene purpose :D 



Hope you like my review! 
Say good bye to stubborn blackheads now! 

Love,
ValerieYan

Hi pretties! 
How's your weekend!

A big parcel arrived my for step with pretty & classy wrapping

Both of them actually very well known in Korea , 
and best of all, they are using natural ingredient in every product , continually strive  for the finest possible formulations with superior efficacy and optimum benefits . 
such as ginseng, and various botanical extracts. 
You can actually smell some ginseng or traditional herbs .

.
Sunway Pyramid UGB store. 
Just opposite Full House

the packaging they using is very luxury & classy feels, 
I think this is great to send it as a gift for lover/best friends or your mother! 

One of the best seller ! 
UGB Peeling gel
100ML 
RM 145 


Formulated with ginseng extract, natural cellulose and oriental herbs, Peeling Gel softly lifts away dead skin cells that will leave skin glowing with its exfoliating peel. It accelerates blood circulation and enhances the delivery with it's the delivery of physiologically active ingredients deep into the skin. Utilising protease technology,  a unique blend of plant-based enzymes combined with the skin's free protein and amino acids, peeling gel helps prevent moisture loss by enhancing the skin's protective barrier for a smooth, glowing complexion.


'Peeling Gel' , I thought is some mask after apply on your face and let it settle down for few mins and peel it off . Haha but I was wrong! 
Peeling gel here as in something like scrub, but this scrub is the finest that I've ever seen. 
when I apply on my hand/face it I can barely feels the super tiny little 'scrubs' 

How to use :
-Spread some amount over the cleaned face (avoid eyes & lip zone). Gently massage with your fingertips in circular movement. Specially massage on T zone. Rinse off with warm water. 
Twice a week. 
This product is great for sensitive skin, because this peeling gel (scrub) is really really mild and gentle. you wouldn't feel any pain or uncomfortable after use it.
for 100ML can use really really long, maybe at least half a year?
Because you only use once or twice a week with very small amount. 
Unless you share it with your families :)

The result is very obvious isn't it!
my hand instantly fairer and smoother !!
( you can enlarge picture and see the difference )

LYCOZ Overnight Bio-Cellulose mask
RM29.90 per sheet. 
25g each
Made up of refreshing cellulose from fermented coconut water (YES, COCONUT WATER lol ) , 
this unique gel mask is able to effectively deliver beneficial botanicals that keep skin hydrated longer . Safe and gentle to your complexion , it's nano-sized fibers conform closely to your face and have superior water retention ability . The absorption power is 10 times much stronger compared to general pulp material, to enhance skin vitality and ensure skin moisturising effect.  




Direction of us 
Apply mask with eyes and lips as the centre for the upper face and lower face each. 
wear for 30-40 minutes and relax~ 
Tips from me* 
I'll use mask every time after hot shower before sleep at around 8pm, your pores are all open and it will absorb much faster too! After cleanser > UGB peeling gel/ serum > Bio- Cellulose mask .
after that you can use your moisturiser and go to bed ! 
Guarantee you can feel a big different after a good night sleep ! 

TIPS! 
I'll use the left overs essence from the mask to apply on my neck and hands. 
don't waste a single drop! LOL 

Last Step! 
UGB Aqua Cream!!!!
This cream is INCREDIBLE !!! MAGIC ! 
RM145
