About The Blogger

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over a decade now. I work full-time in my dream company while juggling love, life, this cute blog and a blogger's community called The Butterfly Project. People often tell me that I'm a wonder woman, but in reality - if it's something you love, you can do wonders.

When I'm not wondering, I'll be on my computer searching for the next fountain of youth or hunting down a fantastic deal. I'm also a shopaholic, wanderluster, spa enthusiast and proud hipster who loves planning special occasions and surprises for her loved ones.

    how do I spend my weekends?

    I just came back from Bangkok and the trip was sure tiring. For 3 days 2 nights, I was basically hunting down street food with my fiance (it was more of trying to keep him occupied so he won't complain about my need to visit the shopping malls like Malaysia don't have any). From Pratunam to Khao San Road to the upper hill sides of Bangkok, food was everywhere. My legs hurt from walking so much! Not to mention my face was suffering from the constant exposure to the hot Bangkok weather. When I came back, I could see my skin flaking and getting white dry patches from the travel stress. Thank goodness my Luxola De-stress Kit arrived in time! I opened it up to find a face mask and a candle. The two perfect combination of a quickie skin rescue while bathing in the therapeutic scents of sweet smelling lychee flowers.

    A face mask is a blissful way to wake up a tired face and in a few minutes whiles it's working its magic can provide welcome 'time out" from a pressured life. 
    what's in my De-stress Kit?

    In my Luxola De-stress Kit, I was given two "GOLD" products from Australia. A face mask from a brand that I have never heard before so I was really eager to try this since it won the Harper’s Bazaar Beauty Hot 100 2012 award. The face mask is from the brand Alpha-H and the one thing that caught my attention was the name of the product - Liquid Gold Smoothing & Perfecting Mask. Immediately I picture gold cream mask!

    Alpha-H, the award winning face mask

    powerful fast acting dual performance mask

    The packaging looks pretty simple but as always the simplest looking products are usually luxury products with attention to details. For the award winning salon resurfacing mask, I read that it is a powerful mask that should be used once a week only at home. It uses 15% Glycolic Acid to exfoliates dead surface cells, a mini peel to leave the complexion visible more supple, dewy and radiant.
    • 15% Glycolic Acid exfoliates dead surface cells
    • Manuka Honey, Lavender and Vitamin E work to hydrate and plump the fresh new cells

    DIRECTIONS: Dampen face and apply cleanser. Massage over the entire face, avoiding the eye and lip areas, and remove with a warm damp face cloth.

    MOR Emporium Candle Lychee Flower

    The next product, is not new to me! I got to know about MOR candles from Luxola.com last year when they first launch in Malaysia. My first purchase from Luxola is the famed pink beauty blender that was seen in Glee, used by Kurt. I fell in love with the exquisite Emporium Candle housed in a luxurious glass topped with 24 carat gold decorations. When I unbox the de-stress kit, the heavenly scent of sweet smelling lychee flowers, ripe berries, soft powdery florals and a slight hint of Green Forest Woods filled the air! The perfect product for a sensory journey at home.
    • Soy Wax for a cleaner longer burn
    • 100 % cotton, lead free wick
    • Candle burn time up to 40 hours
    • 24 carat gold decal
    • Candle presented in a stunning glass vessel
    • Excellent scent throw

    P.S: The Lychee Flower is always out of stock on Luxola and on Mor website! It's really one of the best selling scents from the MOR Emporium Scented Candles collection.

    do I look more relax after 10mins?

    When I used the Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing & Perfecting Mask 100ml RM198.50, I was disappointed it wasn't in liquid gold (haha who am I kidding right, gold cream Liquid Gold actually means the anti-aging range for Alpha-H) but surprised that as powerful as it claims to be, the product gave me an instant lustrous silky soft after wash! The all too familiar scent of Kaolin, a clay used in deep cleansing masks was a tad dry for my dry face after the silkiness passed. It's awesome for those with oily skin. Since the product warns that it uses Alpha-Hydroxy Acid, a mild tingling sensation may be experience (I did experience this on my cheeks! but the tingling sensation went away after a few mins). I don't recommend sensitive skin users to put this cream mask on for too long. Overall, this is a deep cleansing mask to be used after cleansing your face to remove dead skin cells, sebum, dirt that would leave your face feeling clean and brighter. The dryness was played down thanks to the moisturizing ingredients - Manuka Honey, Lavender and Vitamin E which helps to plumped up and hydrate the new skin cells.

    The MOR Emporium Candle Lychee Flower 184g RM131.50, as exquisite looks will never fail to make you feel your money's worth. This candle burns up to 40 hours thanks to its soy wax, burnt on a 100% cotton lead free wick. The sweet smelling lychee flower was fragrant as it is and gave out a light scent during burning. Watching the candle light flickers while listening to the relaxing beach sounds from AROMA for beautiful mind and body, music on youtube made me feel like I was on a luxury spa beach getaway.

    All you need to de-stress is 10minutes with the right music, a scented candle and a face mask that would do wonders for you in a short time. The Luxola De-stressing Kit products is available on Luxola.com/my should you be interested in them.
