Beauty/ Health: Ludeya Microneedles Bio-Cellulose Masks & Simply Drinks

If you remember my previous post about, you'll probably figure out that I just couldn't resist buying a few things from them! Before I could do so, I was sent these few items to try out!

Everything is precariously packed in bubble wrap, even the tiny loose masks pieces. Kudos to them for taking extra care of the products!

These were the items that I got to try out from - Simply Barley & Simply Red Bean drink and a few variety of Ludeya Microneedles Bio-cellulose masks, endorsed by Taiwan artist, Selina and beauty guru, Kevin!

Ludeya Microneedles Bio-Cellulose Masks are all the rage in Taiwan because of their unique texture and effective functions. Ludeya was established in Taiwan in 2003 by a team of elites from Korea, Japan, Europe and USA as a highly effective and authentic dermatological beauty solution. All Ludeya products consists of non-artificial colourings, fragrance, preservatives and are hypo allergenic to suit all skin types. After winning many awards and offering a huge range of trendy, technologically-advanced and high performance products, Ludeya sets out to provide affordable luxury skincare for people who demand excellence and perfect skin!

One piece of bio cellulose mask requires 21 days of fermentation at low temperatures, through a process called Bio Fermentation Skingel. The masks are derived from various algae extracts and is equivalent to 7 pieces of normal bio cellulose masks that are normally derived from coconut. One piece of Ludeya Bio Cellulose mask is 10 times more effective than a normal sheet mask! With its exclusive and patented ingredient, SEANOL that was derived from more than 10 types of algae and using Micro Needle technology, this mask helps to promote skin collagen recovery. With added botanical essential essence combined with the different Algae Polyphenol Extract as the active ingredient and polysaccharides, one can enjoy the pleasant natural botanical scent and relax while your skin is being nourished. All ingredients are clinically proven and tested to be mild and effective so it doesn't stimulate the skin.

Ludeya Microneedles Bio-Cellulose Mask - Brightening Moisturising
There are a few variants of the Ludeya mask and I set out to try a different one once a week. This black packaging Ludeya Microneedles Ludeya Bio-Cellulose mask is used to enhance skin repair, improve firmness & elasticity, hydrate the skin and unclog pores.

Unlike most sheet masks, the black variant of Ludeya mask has a cream serum!

To be honest, it's quite tedious to use this mask there are 3 layers to it - the silvery plastic layer, the mask in the centre and the blue layer that you remove after you put on the mask.

This masks feels like coconut flesh! HAHA. Bio cellulose has been known to treat burn patients and is commonly known as "artificial skin" in the medical industry because of its structure that is similar to human skin and because it completely bonds with the skin to effectively reduce skin sensitivity and deliver nutrients deep into the skin. S.H.E Selina used Ludeya Bio Cellulose Mask for 2 years before being an ambassador of the brand after seeing how well it has helped her skin to recover after the burning incident a few years back.

To use, place mask over a thoroughly cleaned face and leave it on for 10 - 15 minutes. Then, remove the mask and gently pat in the remaining serum into the skin with your fingertips. After that, proceed with your usual skincare routine to lock in the nourishing ingredients.

The mask's material is really adhesive and adheres to the face well! Nutrients can then effectively penetrate deep into the skin. It is strong, yet gentle and doesn't tear easily as well. I have a small face, so there were some excess at the side and the cutout where the mouth is supposed to be is a little small, but otherwise, it fits great! It doesn't slide off the face as easily as most face masks.

I chose to use the black Ludeya mask first because I had some scars on the side of my face from a previous facial that I did. Glad to say that the mask really helped to soothe my red skin and definitely helped in promoting the recovery of the scars!

You can get this Ludeya Microneedles Bio-Cellulose Mask - Brightening Moisturising from iQueen at RM22.90.

Ludeya Microneedles Bio-Cellulose Mask - Hydro White Moisturising
 This mask is meant for all skin types and is perfect for improving skin tone and contains triple whitening effects. The mask is similar to the black Ludeya Bio-Cellulose Mask and uses a cream-type serum as well.

Not sure if it's obvious but there is an instant whitening effect. The mask has also lightened up the acne marks on my forehead, as you can see.

Ludeya Microneedles Bio-Cellulose Mask - Rejuvenating Moisturising
The pink variant of Ludeya mask helps to provide optimum hydration, repair dry skin problems and keep the skin soft, supple and moisturised for long hours. 

Unlike the other two masks, the pink Ludeya mask uses the usual liquid serum.

The pink Ludeya mask feels extra moisturising on the skin. It felt slightly sticky after use, but after patting it into the skin, my skin feels more hydrated and fresh.

You can get this Ludeya Microneedles Bio-Cellulose Mask - Rejuvenating Moisturising from iQueen at RM22.90.

Final thoughts? I find this Ludeya Microneedles Bio-Cellulose Mask range very useful for people with dry skin that flakes frequently, like me.  The masks doesn't stimulate my sensitive skin and I'm really impressed by how cool the bio cellulose feels and sticks to my skin. The masks have a pleasant smell and it's really interesting to use a cream-serum mask instead of regular ones. I even applied the excess serum like moisturiser or serum on my limbs after each use. Each mask doesn't have much of a difference to me and the price point is quite high, seeing as it's only one sheet per box. Other than that, I would highly recommend this mask for people with severe skin problems!

You can these Ludeya Microneedles Bio-cellulose Mask for RM22.90 each at iQueen, and there are other colours available for various uses. This range is the most affordable and is currently at 15% discount at only RM19.57, with a FREE Ludeya 2 Step Mask with each purchase! 

They say beauty comes from within, so it's important that we take care of our health before that radiance shows on the outside. Simply Drinks is an all-natural drink that can keep you young and provide vitality & effective body care from inside out. It has been said to have awesome metabolic effect! There are three natural guarantees with this product - zero detectable pesticide, zero heavy metals and zero detectable preservatives. With no colouring, flavour, fragrance, seasoning or antioxidants, being sugar-free and ultra-low calorie, this drink is the perfect addition to your everyday consumption for better health.

There are 15 sachets in a box. One small sachet a day is all you need. Each sachet is small, making it easy to carry around and is a delicious way to improve drinks such as plain water, milk, juice, anything you can think of!

The instructions are pretty straightforward. Just pour the contents of the sachet and mix it with some water. Stir well and consume.

Simply Red Bean Drink
Simply Red Bean Drink is made of natural organic red bean that were naturally extracted in its concentrated form. There are no pesticide and no additives whatsoever. Red bean is said to eliminate edema, promote metabolism, enrich the blood, relieve menstrual pain and improve PMS, detoxify and gives you a natural rosy, glowing complexion. With heightened metabolism, it can effetively reduce water retention, enhance body stimulation and effectively reduce weight

Simply Barley Drink
Simply Barley Drink is made from natural organic barley, which is known for its whitening effect. Not only does it have similar features as the red bean drink to help lose weight, it helps you to achieve flawless translucent skin, moisturise the skin and eliminate edema. Barley is said to contain high amounts of Vitamin C to help you effectively whiten skin from top to toe and lighten dark spots.

The tiny bits of red bean and barley residue shows just how natural the drinks are. As both drinks are not added with any sugar, they taste fairly plain with mild hints of red bean or barley.The good thing is, it is also versatile so you can add it to your favourite drink, even Milo, coffee or tea! You can have it served hot or cold, any way you like!

My thoughts after trying out both drinks is that the flavour isn't the most appealing. It basically tastes like water with mild smell and taste of red bean or barley. To make it more bearable, I sometimes add it to my fruit juices or add just a little bit of sugar. I personally prefer the taste of the red bean drink more as it's really light and refreshing. I'd love the barley drink more if it had real bits of barley in it like those we usually cook though :p As I don't drink the two drinks consistently nor do I need to lose weight or whiten my skin, I would say the drinks are more suitable for me as a health booster. It's also a good way to make me drink more water. Heh. Of course, if you take it regularly and for a long time, the effects might be more obvious. 

You can get these Simply Red Bean and Barley Drinks from iQueen at RM29.00! There are only a few items left in stock, so be fast!

Carinn x OOTD: Keepin' it Neutral ft. LoveBag LoveBag

So my camera is officially down and now I'll have to live for two months or so, until I save up enough to pay for new lenses :( To make myself feel better, I get up and dress up because a day out with loved ones always cheers me up. Pretty things make me happy, just like this Prada-inspired Tote/ Sling Bag in Silver Pink from LoveBag LoveBag! If you're planning on getting a new bag, stay tuned till the end as I have a special discount code just for you!

You've probably seen me carrying this a lot in my recent Instagram posts. I love the name 'silver pink' but the bag is more of a nude-pink colour. The material is amazing, but it is a little on the heavy-side and is slightly large on petite me. Carrying a big bag has its benefits too. You can carry more things in your bag and the fact that the bag can be worn on the arm or as a sling bag is an added bonus! Neutral colours match everything but so as to not overpower the lovely design of the bag, I went for a more corporate look with the blazer while sporting a casual white tee underneath. The outfit may seem blah, so I added a bit of gold to make it stand out. Now you're ready for comfy yet stylish day out!

If you'd like to see more, you can view my previous Carinn x OOTD post here :)

If you're thinking of getting a new bag for Valentines' Day or CNY, you can use my discount code LB4CARINN to get 10% off your purchases. Knowing that many of you will be doing last minute shopping for CNY, the discount code has been graciously extended till 18th February 2015! Rejoice! Don't forget to tag @lovebaglovebag and #lovebaglovebag to share your looks, I'd love to see which bag(s) you chose! :D

Girl Talk: F.Cup Rich Cookies (Strawberry)

I'll admit, I have a tiny physique so it's no surprise that I'm always labelled as 'flat-chested' by my friends. But that's ok, I'm still awesome!! Hahahaha. I also admit that I've hoped for a fuller bust just because it can make me look better in certain clothes. This is quite a sensitive topic to talk about, but it's nothing to be ashamed about since all girls have boobs right? Thank goodness there are solutions out there for flat-chested girls like me to enhance that certain area.

I've heard a lot about these F.Cup Rich Cookies, but have yet to try them. Seems like SaSa Malaysia read my mind and sent me a box to try! Thank you!

F.Cup Rich Cookies are the new and improved version of ordinary F.Cup Cookies. F.Cup Cookies are helping women everywhere to look and feel more feminine. It is a hot-selling product in Japan, Taiwan and Singapore and has sold 4.5 million boxes up to date! F.Cup Cookies are highly recommended by celebrities and beauty talk shows. The active ingredient Pueraria Mirifica not only helps with breast enlargement and healthier menstruation, it also helps to keep your hair and skin healthier. There have even been reports of reduced acne, relieves menopausal symptoms, increases circulation and vaginal secretion, and also reduces stress and aging. The new F.Cup Rich Cookies contains 2x more Pueraria Mirifica so apparently you get double the results? :p 

Consume one piece of cookie a day and drink plenty of water, as it absorbs water, swells and gives a feeling of satiety. Something to take note of is not to consume F.Cup Rich Cookies during pregnancy, breastfeeding or menstruation. Do not eat also if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. I got the F.Cup Rich Cookies in Strawberry flavour. Results may differ according to each individual as some can see results in as fast as 3 weeks. This is not a dependent medication and once you've reached your desired results, you may stop. It is advisable not to consume the cookies for more than 2 months. Fret not, there are no side effects of consuming F.Cup Rich Cookies as they are approved by Japan's Ministry of Health and KKM as a Non-hazardous Health Food.

There are 15 cookies in one box, wrapped in plain silver wrapper. As I understand, this is unlike the old version of F.Cup Cookies which had chocolate and strawberry flavours in printed wrapper.

This is how the cookie looks like, just like a long, plain cookie. The black bits are actually pieces of dried strawberry! I wouldn't say it's the tastiest cookies in the world, but it's bearable. The texture is soft, but a little dry and crumbly. It is not overly sweet, which I like, and I do consume one every morning as my breakfast.

I've been consuming F.Cup Cookies for about 2 weeks now and guess what? There is actually a 2cm increase in my bust size! Of course it's not that obvious but it's still something! My bust is also significantly firmer now, even without exercise. What I do realise also is that I've been producing more discharge that has a slight odour? This doesn't happen after I stop consuming the product so that could be a side-effect. Be warned that because these are hormones that you are consuming, you may start to see changes to other parts of your body like for me, I've had breakouts on my forehead so I advice you to increase your liquid intake if you're planning to consume these cookies. Do note that results differ for everyone as I have some friends who claim that these have no effect on them while others may experience weight gain. The other downside is that it's quite pricey at RM118 per box. If not, I would definitely buy another box to stock up! Oh wells. 

You can purchase the F.Cup Rich Cookies from all SaSa outlets nationwide. Follow SaSa Malaysia for more deals and promotions!

Everytime it's late at night, I just feel a certain wave of sadness hit me. This is the best time to write it all out. It might be because of the stress of finding a job - my parents have really been going at me for that. It might be because I have so much work to do that I can hardly breathe. It might be the fact that my camera lens is spoiled because of my stupidity and carelessness. It might also be because I haven't seen my bf in two weeks because he's so busy with uni, despite both of us being in JB. It might be because... Idk, I'm just... sad.

2015 hasn't been awesomely kind so far. Despite not having a full-time job, I'm still working, ok. I'm working part-time for a local magazine and I have meetings and reviews to attend too. I have copywriting to do for some companies. I have blog posts to rush. I've been so busy that I feel as if I can hardly breathe. I feel so useless and unproductive. I'm living just to look forward to the end of each week. I frag myself out of bed each morning, refusing to face the new day ahead. I don't want to wake up late and tired everyday, but the night time is the only time my scumbag brain is productive and decides to do real work. -_-

Now that my camera is down, it makes me feel so unproductive. I feel that photos taken with my iPhone 5S just would not make the cut to keep the consistency of my blog posts :( I need my camera back ASAP but at the same time, I'll need to work harder to earn more money to pay for the lens.. Sigh.. My birthday is in a week, anyone wanna donate angpao? Haha.

I have sooo many unfinished tasks, sometimes I don't understand why also. It's like I can't even find time to do the vital things, like applying for a job. Have to do trivial stuff like altering my clothes, pack my room, renew my driving license, sync my phone etc and all these takes up so much time, I just.. cannot. What ever happened to my "resolution" to be more organised... Sigh. 

Speaking of jobs, the jobscope and job market in JB is really so small! It's hard to find something that pays well and most importantly, makes me happy. I am really reluctant to get a job and just work for the sake of working. I know I'm going to be unhappy. My parents are not helping to ease the stress and have been nagging me to find a job. It's not that I'm not trying, it's just that it's SO hard to find. I've tried looking for Singapore companies, but it's even harder because most require prior work experiences. I'm trying, I'm crying, but I know it's all useless. I'm still young, there are so many things I wanna see, so many things I wanna do... But I guess that's life, and I don't have a choice right? Shall continue looking, and pray for a miracle to come my way. 

Please let me get my life back in order.

CNY Cookies for Sale! (JB Area)

The last two days, I helped out my aunt to bake CNY Cookies to sell. I decided to blog about it and who knows, some of you might be interested to purchase the cookies?

I've loved my aunt's baked goods since I was a kid. She bakes cookies for CNY, cakes for our birthdays, or just randomly tries out new recipes for bread, cakes and other baked goods. Just my luck to live just one street away from her :p I especially love her pineapple tarts and cheese log for Chinese New Year but this year, she'll only be baking these butter cookies and peanut cookies (no photos, sorry)! Still darn yummy, imo.

Selling for RM23 per canister.

Fresh from the oven!

 We spent about 4 hours to bake these. It's 100% pure creamy butter cookies, using kampung eggs somemore! ;p 100% homemade and 100% fresh, because we always believe that commercialised cookies aren't as healthy for you and not as yummy because they don't usually use natural ingredients. Which explains why those cookies have a longer shelf-life right? That's why I'm always a firm believer of trying out home-baked goods.

If you're interested in getting these butter cookies or peanut cookies, do PM me on Facebook or email me at to place your orders. You can also order your birthday cakes from my aunt too! 

In the meantime, Happy Chinese New Year in advance! I'm so excitedddd, are you? :D
