Review: Marine Elements™ Body Wash & Body Lotion

I was introduced to a brand that is natural and drug-free recently - Marine Elements™. Their body care products is suitable for people of all ages, including babies, with sensitive skin, to improve dry and itchy skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis, by new exfoliation and skin regeneration technology.
It helps relieve itching; reduce redness and supports the regeneration of fresh cells.
Marine Elements™ uses patented technology in the form of Zonase X™, an active ingredient which contains natural proteins and enzymes derived from the pure and protected marine sources of Norway. These proteins and enzymes are scientifically proven to gently exfoliate the dead cells from the skin, allowing natural regeneration of the skin and also relieving inflammation.

Zonase X™ has been extensively researched and developed in cooperation with Norwegian Universities. It is the latest innovation combining marine technology and skincare science. It works in 3 ways to improve the appearance of the skin:
1.    It breaks down the connections between the dead skin cells on the outer layer of the skin. The dead cells then are naturally detached.
2.    It allows other active ingredients to transport moisture and nutrition to the deeper layers of the skin creating a moisturizing effect.
3.    It elevates healthy cells to the surface of the skin thus creating a rejuvenating effect and strengthens the natural protective barrier on the skin.

The products have been specially formulated to moisturize, calm and smooth the skin, whilst leaving a protective barrier against the elements. They are all hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive skin. 

Moreover, Marine Elements™ body care products is Soap-Free; pH balanced for the Skin; 
  • Extra mild and moisturising; Hypoallergenic; SLS-Free; Paraben-Free and Dermatologically Tested.

Since it sounds pretty promising, I have given it a try on my younger daughter. She was having bad eczema since early this year. :(

No More Touch-Ups with Maybelline New York’s White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder SPF34 PA+++

So you have read my previous post about Maybelline New York’s latest products. Today I'd like to share my review on them.
I am born with oily combination skin, hence I need something that’s really good to maintain a matte face throughout the day. Maybelline White Superfresh Cake Powder SPF34 PA+++ has done a good job in this; my face is fresh and matte for a whole day. 
I no longer need touch-ups during the day. My pores don’t get clogged up either with its lightweight formula.
The application is easy, using the puff application that comes with it, apply White Superfresh Long Lasting UV Cake Powder SPF34 PA+++ all over face. 
Skin whitens up and feels fresher with a lasting matte texture.
I'm using #02 Nude Beige shade

I like it’s white packaging, which is simple and sleek. The big mirror is also something that I like. What made it even better is the pocket friendly price; it only cost RM23.90 and RM11.90 for refills.
