New Bio-essence Royal Jelly + ATP Shape V Series

Firm your skin with Bio-essence The Royal Jelly + ATP Shape V Face Series. This series of products has been blended with Bio Energy Fluid, Bio Mineral Amino Acid Essence, royal jelly, ATP and herbal extracts to boost skin metabolism and lift sagging skin. It also improves microcirculation to renew, repair and restore the skin’s suppleness, radiance and firmness.

I was delighted when local skincare brand Bio-essence sent me 3 products from its new Royal Jelly + ATP Shape V series for review. I had seen its TV advertisement several times (you can also view it above) and was curious about this new range of products as it contain ingredients which are really good for our skin. My mum and i have tried Bio-essence's popular Bird’s Nest Nutri-Collagen & Whitening series when there was a 30% discount at Watsons and we love using its cleanser and sleeping mask.

The Royal Jelly + ATP Shape V Face series creates a feminine charm by giving skin a royal and luxurious treat that restores youth and lifts and firms skin at the same time to reveal a V-shaped facial contour. This new range contains Adenosine Tri-phosphate (ATP) which helps to supply and communicate energy to skin cells like a continuous current, improving micro-circulation effectively to renew and repair skin.

What really attracted me to this new range is its star ingredient - precious Royal Jelly that is highly beneficial for our skin. Royal Jelly is a thick, extremely nutritious milky-white, creamy liquid specially secreted by worker nurse bees. It is a highly beneficial ingredient that Queen bees feed exclusively on. It’s no wonder Queen bees live 40 times longer than worker bees - proof that Royal Jelly is a superior anti-aging ingredient and i can't wait to introduce this new range to my mum.

My Review

1) Deep Exfoliating Gel

Deep exfoliating gel helps to remove the dead skin cells on our face so that our skin can absorb skincare products easily. Even though it is gentle enough for daily use i prefer to use it about 1-2 times a week. I tried it twice and am happy to report that it does not irritate or makes my skin feels dry after usage. My skin feels clean and smoother. It is supposed to help in lightening pimple scars but i have not seen any results yet. 

2) Radiant Youth Essence with Royal Jelly & ATP

I was really impressed with the radiant youth essence which gives me instant results! My hands have been really dry recently from all the washings i have to do for my baby's feeding equipments and i read from the instructions that this product can also be used on the face, hands and legs. I applied the radiant youth essence on my right hand and it did feel oily initially but blended in easily after i lightly massage the essence in a circular motion. I asked hubby to feel both hands without telling him where i applied the product and he noticed immediately that my right hand feels softer and smoother! I'm going to apply this regularly on my hand. 

I also tried it on my face after cleansing and toning and it makes my face feel oily initially but the oily feeling disappear after awhile and my skin feels well moisturized and soft instantly! This product should be helpful for ladies with dry skin problems and those who works or sleeps in an air-conditioned room as it really helps to nourish and keep the skin well hydrated.

3) Face Lifting Cream with Royal Jelly & ATP

The face lifting cream claims to slim down the face by reducing water retention and by lifting the contours of the face. It even comes with a measuring tape but i have not seen any slimming result yet after applying it once but i like that the cream is not oily and does not irritate my skin. My skin feels soft and supple after i apply the cream and it makes a really good moisturizer. I hope to see a  slimmer and v-shaped face with continuous use of the product ;)

Review Of Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash

Screen Shot 2013-05-25 at 10.12.41 AM

I have been wanting to try out Japanese drugstore brand Biore's star product -  Marshmallow Whip facial wash for a long time after reading wonderful reviews about it online. I was happy to accept the sponsorship of a bottle of its facial wash from Biore for review. What attracts me to the product is its skin Purifying Technology and ultra fine foam which helps users to prevent excessive pulling and tugging during cleansing. Thanks Elfaine for sending me the Marshmallow facial wash regular (for normal and combination skin) in a lovely package.

This is another quality drugstore brand product that i super love after just one time of using it!!! It is made in Japan and i love that it provides ultra fine foam instantly with just 1 pump. I can save time on lathering compared to normal facial cleanser and this is really helpful when i'm busy taking care of my baby boy and still trying to maintain my usual skincare routine. I also enjoy the feel of the fluffy foam on my skin while cleansing.

Review of MENTHOLATUM Deep Moist


Another useful drugstore brand beauty product that i would like to share with readers of my blog is the Mentholatum ultra hydrating lip balm with hyaluronic acid which is made in Japan. I used to be a lip balm user but switched to using Ettusais lip essence several years ago as i love that it helps to keep my lip well moisturized and glossy looking without the need to apply a separate lip gloss when i go out. I always have a tube in my makeup pouch whenever i'm outside. I received a tube of MENTHOLATUM ultra hydrating lip balm for review recently and decided to give lip balm a try again last week. Read on for more information about the product and my review.

More information about the product

Photo 11-5-13 12 11 37 PM

For those who are not familiar with this product, Deep Moist was launched in 2008 in Japan and has seen tremendous success and popularity there. It quickly became top selling lip balms in Japan’s lip care market. This strengthened Mentholatum Lip Balm Brand leadership as the #1 Top Selling Lip Balm brand in Japan* (2006 to 2009). 

The success of Deep Moist is due to 2 main factors, its premium hydrating ingredients at value pricing, and its elegant, ergonomic packaging designThe key moisturizing ingredients in Deep Moist lip balms are Hyaluronic Acid, a premium ingredient that forms a smooth, moisture locking shield for softer, smoother lips. It can hold 1000X its weight in water, or 6 litres of water with just 1g. Shea Butter heals the skin, and gives a soft, pleasant texture to the lip balm. Jojoba Oil gives pro-longed, whole day hydration to the lips.

My Review

Photo 11-5-13 12 12 33 PM

I bought several tubes of Mentholatum lip balm while i was in Tokyo years ago and it was really effective in helping my lip to stay well moisturized. I gave the lip balm a try again last week and am happy to share that it is still as effective at keeping my lip well moisturized and i usually reapply after every few hours. I  love that it is fragrance free and does not feel sticky or oily on my lip. Application is really easy due to its design and i like its simple and lightweight packaging. It is also much cheaper than my Ettusais lip essence and i would most likely repurchase it again so that i can use it at home :) Do give it a try too and give your lips some pampering ;) You can find the product at Watsons stores.
