Facial puffiness 101 | 360° Medi Skin V-Lift Phyto Stem Cell Spray Review

Beauty treatment at home is the way to go! Due to the current Pandemic, it's always wise to cut down non essential trips away from home. 

But this is no excuse to neglect skincare.

What is V lift?

V lifting is an aesthetic treatment that tightens skin to reduce puffiness and lightens wrinkles. I have previously tried nose threading using polydioxanone (PDO) fine threads. Read my experience in this post. It's a fast, effective and safe procedure under trained hands. The thread can also be inserted to create V shaped face. But now it's possible to do needleness V lifting! All in the comfort of your home.

What causes facial puffiness?

Facial puffiness is caused by water or salt retention under the skin. This can happen when the blood vessels are leaky; or when body cannot excrete excessive water or salt from the body. Or when the lymphatic and/or blood drainage is blocked.

Before spraying.

In healthy people, this can happen if one has too much salt, sleep deprivation (like me during my oncalls), alcohol, PMS and hot showers.

Besides that, people with certain health conditions can have puffy face such as
1. Allergies with angioedema
2. Kidney problems
3. Heart failure
4. Liver failure
5. Severe malnutrition with low protein in blood
6. Thyroid problems

Read more about facial puffiness here at Women Health Mag.

What can we do to lessen facial puffiness?

Drink up! Water of course. Make sure you have at least 1.5L to 2L of plain water a day. Have enough sleep. Exercise and be active. Remove makeups completely before sleeping. Cut down alcohol and salt. Or try V-lift treatments for more immediate and lasting results. I have recently tried 360° Medi Skin Instant V-Lift Phyto Stem Cell Spray as a quick fix at home.

360° Medi Skin Instant V-Lift Phyto Stem Cell Spray

This spray contains stem cells derived from plants to provide durable lifting and firming effect to the skin which helps to alleviate puffiness, round cheeks and uneven facial contour. The product is the much sought after V-shaped instagrammable face!

How to use?

This stem cell spray contains a potent concoction of botanical goodness. Just spray the face and neck twice a day after cleansing at about 4inch distance. It can also be used around the eyes. Just make sure you closed your eyes before spraying. Then gently tap and pat the solution after 10 seconds to facilitate absorption.

The effect is visible almost immediately. It's really magical and incredible. There's no injection involved and very minimal side effects as the content of the spray is natural.

The main ingredients are

1. Apple Stem Cells: It contains strong anti-ageing and rejuvenating properties

2. Acetyl hexapeptide-8 : This helps to tighten the skin and reduce appearance of fine lines.

3. Caffeine: I love my coffee! This reduces puffiness and make sure the skin is supple without cellulite.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

360° Medi Skin Instant V-Lift Phyto Stem Cell Spray is a convenient and effective therapy to create supple and photogenic face instantly. It's not invasive and safe for daily use. So I suggest ladies who think they have tried everything else besides aesthetic treatments can use the stem cell spray to help with facial puffiness. Everyday is an instagrammable look!

Remedy for Dry Hands | Sensenique Natural Body Wash Review

Hand washing is becoming ever important nowadays. As a healthcare worker, I see many patients a day. We practise 5 moments of hand hygiene to avoid transmitting germs between patients and ourselves.

 As we run out of commercial alcohol based handrub, the pharmacy has no choice but to DIY hand rub. The result is dry skin with contact dermatitis. My skin started to become tight, inflamed and flaky. It's very uncomfortable and I have lost sleep because of the itchiness. This is called irritant contact dermatitis.

The mainstay of treatment remains removing the source of irritation. But I can't reach a tap and wash my hands constantly! So I have started to use my own moisturizing Hand Sanitiser. Besides avoiding the offending chemical, it's very important to use the correct products to repair and rehydrate the dry hands. 

I am very happy to receive Sensenique Natural Body Wash. They are proudly made in Malaysia and has won the Best Body Wash- Local Brand (Reader's Choice) under Her Beauty Awards 2019. I use them as hand soap.  Time to pamper my hands and to support the local industry during lockdown.

Sensenique Natural is made of 98% organic ingredients and abide to the Ecocert - which is an international organization that produces the standard for environmental friendly and organic certification. As the ingredients are gentle, plant based yet potent, it's suitable for all skin types. It can be used in children older than 1 year of age and is definitely suitable for the elderly with thin and dry skin.

Sensenique Natural Body Wash does not contain harsh chemicals such as SLS, SLES, ALS, Coco betaine and cocamidopropyl betaine. These are ingredients frequently added to beauty products but can become source of causing skin irritation and inflammation. Read more about each of them on EWG.

Besides that, Sensenique contains hydrating ingredients like argan oil and aloe vera. These two plants also soothe inflamed skin due to the cooling effect.

Sensenique Natural Body Wash comes with 2 varieties-- 

1.  Ginger and Orange -Ginger root has antiaging and rejuvenating properties. Orange essential oil, on the other hand, improves complexion and is rich in vitamin A and C.
2. Peppermint and Lime- Peppermint oil cleanses the skin and helps to combat acne. Lime essential oil is very refreshing, is rich in antioxidants and definitely helps with pigmentation.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

I love the citrusy and refreshing scent of Sensenique Natural body wash. After washing my hands, they felt moisturised and smooth. The price is slightly on the high side since only premium blend of essential oils are used. Those who love essential oils should definitely try it out. If you have never tried using essential oils, Sensenique could change you.

How to care for your hair during lockdown| Marvel by Melix Hair Care Series Review

This Covid 19 era calls for social distancing and Malaysia is already in the 7th week of Movement Control Order. Spending more time at home with the hair saloon closed means that I need all the more reasons to pamper myself. I have chopped off half of my hair on my own as it's really a hassle to dry them up as I have to shower a lot these days in and out of work.

A photo of me straight after I cut my hair. What do you think?

I'm still working full-time as a general physician, just spending more time at home as a mother, teacher to my 2 boys, cook and cleaner. Lol. To keep my sanity in check, I have gotten the Marvel Spring Shower hair care series by Melix!

I have already been using Melix body care series and am really in love with the floral scent. Read here to find out how I DIY home spa.

So to recreate a hair saloon at home--
1. Ask dear hubby and mommy to babysit for 1hour.
2. Infuse some lavender essential oil.
3. Put on some relaxing spa music using my phone.
4. Shampoo my hair with Marvel Spring Shower Shampoo.
5. Massage the scalp thoroughly for 10 minutes.
6. Rinse my hair.
7. Apply Marvel hair conditioner on the scalp.
8. Relax and meditate for 10 minutes.
9. Rinse again.
10. Pat the hair dry to reduce frizz.
11. Spray Marvel Apple Stem Cell tonic to the scalp.
12. Spray Marvel Antidandruff Spray to the scalp.
13. Dry and style.
14. Done!

Now let's analyse what makes the Marvel series so marvellous for our hair!

Marvel Spring Shower Hair Shampoo

The main ingredients are:
- Hydrolyzed wheat protein which protects and repairs the hair to reduce breakage and makes the hair soft.
- Avocado oil nourishes the hair and reduce dandruff
- Calendula flower extract works as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory to calm irritated scalp

Marvel Spring Shower Hair Conditioner

The conditioner is made of a wonderful concoction of the following:
- Macadamia seed oil hydrates, tames and strengthens the mane
- Jojoba seed oil tones and moisturize the scalp
- Camomile flower extract soothes the scalp

Marvel Spring Shower Apple Stem Cell Tonic

-Apple Stem Cell improves the longevity and vitality of scalp cells.
-Peppermint Essential Oil cools and soothes the inflamed scalp.
-Algae extract purifies the hair follicles and stimulates hair growth.

Marvel Spring Shower Anti-dandruff Spray

-Jasmine flower extract calms the irritated scalp.
- Tea tree oil is not only good in relieving acne but also reducing scalp inflammation.
- Safflower seed oil is anti-aging and rids the scalp of dandruff effectively.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

I have been battling with oily scalp, dandruff and thinning hair even more so after delivering 2 energetic boys. I'm so happy that I have finally found affordable hair products that really tailor to my hair problems.

I'm not exaggerating that I can actually achieve an after hair saloon look easily with the products.
You can easily see how many natural yet powerful plant based ingredients are in Marvel Spring Shower Hair Care series. I love the floral scent that lingers long after a pampering session. Most importantly, I have noticed less oily scalp, a huge improvement in dandruff issues as well as thicker and shinier hair which is less prone to breaking.

Collagen supplementation- Is it the new fountain of youth? | Go Shine Botanical Beverage Review

Being a lady, I am conscious about my appearance and how fast wrinkles and crow feet have become part of my face in the past decade. Half of my hair thickness is gone due to hormonal changes after delivering my boys. How I miss my carefree student face with no blemish and supple skin. Besides investing in beauty products, what about collagen supplementation? Is it the panacea?

Collagen is a very important structure-- if you like, like a scaffold for the body. It makes up 75% of the dry weight of our skin which allows the skin to look plump and radiant. Collagen is also rich in amino acids which is needed for tendon, bone, joint, nail and hair health. Consuming collagen really brings beauty inside out as proven by a few recent research in 2014 and 2019.

I do believe that proper collagen supplementation can delay signs of ageing. This is because our body break down collagen faster than producing it as we age. Injecting collagen under the skin does not last long, can be painful and difficult to absorb and may cause allergic reactions. Consuming collagen, on the other hand, has very few side effects. Not only is it great to improve skin condition, collagen supplementation has also shown promising results in accelerating wound healing, improving lean mass and alleviating joint pain. Read more about collagen supplementation on WebMD.

The quality of the supplement is of utmost importance. Go Shine by Max Health Malaysia is one of the trusted collagen beverage brand in the market. It is formulated in Japan and Switzerland. Always look out for HACCP, GMP and MESTi approved products to ensure it does not contain any traces of heavy metal. Certified by the Ministry of Health Malaysia,  Go Shine Botanical Beverage is definitely safe for consumption in healthy individuals. To my muslim friends, Go Shine is a halal product.

The other active ingredients include:

Rice Ceramide- whitens, hydrate and moisturise skin
Sakura- rich in antioxidant/anti-ageing, promotes collagen production
Vitamin C-boost collagen production, hasten healthy skin cell turnover
White Cucurmin- potent anti-oxidant, UV protection, soothes inflamed skin
Melon Extract- rich in Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD) a poweful antioxidant, stress reliever
L-cysteine- Whitens skin by enhancing the production of glutathione, anti-oxidant
Vitamin E- Strong antioxidant, absorbs harmful UVB
Apple Stem Cell- maintain longevity of skin stem cells

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

Any healthy person with no chronic illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure, heart/kidney/liver failure may try collagen supplement with no ill effect. Avoid if you are expecting or lactating as well because no research has been done in this group of ladies as it is unethical to put both mothers and babies at risk. I have personally experienced the difference in collagen supplementation and will continue to consume high quality collagen such as Go Shine.

Aromatherapy at home | Eucapro skin cleansing products review

Everyone would love their homes to smell good. But I simply can't bear the scent of most synthetic air fresheners. They make my head spin and stomach churn. But the scent of natural essential oils has served me well for years. I first noticed the usefulness of natural aromatherapy during my first pregnancy. Even though I did not have severe morning sickness, I couldn't smell cooking and did have my fair share of nausea. Keeping some essential oils handy for sniffing was useful and safe during pregnancy.

Eucapro has started producing odor removal and disinfecting sprays for a while now. More information about their household products in my previous post here. And we are so excited to introduce you all to Eucapro's shower products range!

What's so unique about Eucapro?

Eucapro products are formulated in Australia mainly using eucalyptus oil. They are

1. Cruelty free
2. Vegan friendly
3. Organic, natural and safe
4. High quality yet affordable
total ingredients (including water and salt) must be organic

The following harmful ingredients are not used in Eucapro products:

1. No parabens- may lead to fertility issues and cancer 

2. No propylene glycol- risk children to breathing and immunity problems 

3. No sulphates (including sodium lauryl/laureth sulphate)- harsh and irritating to the skin

4. No cocamidopropyl betaine- may cause allergies and contact dermatitis

5. No artificial or unnecessary fragrances/colours- may worsen eczema

6.. No synthetic detergents (eg, cocamide DEA/MEA)-may cause cancer

7. No petrochemicals (eg, petrolatum, polysorbates, PEG)- may cause cancer
Potential role as carcinogens, concern over long-term effects on the skin

8. No mineral oils (a.k.a. paraffinum liquidum)- Toxic if ingested, also a skin irritant and allergen with links to cancer

9. No lanolin- toxic if ingested

10. No chlorinated water- irritates and dehydrates skin

11No phthalates - cause allergies and can be harmful to developing foetus

Eucapro Baby Moisturising Bath & Wash
Eucapro Baby Shampoo

These 2 baby products also feature eucalyptus, aloe vera and rosemary oils. Baby Yi has really sensitive skin which tends to become irritated and inflamed especially on his face, neck and private areas even when we wipe off his saliva and change his diapers frequently. It tends to worsen when he is down with a cold. 

After using Eucapro, we realise his skin is much more moisturised and smooth. Eucalyptus and aloe vera soothe his itchy inflamed skin down very well. The tear free formula is a must for all the baby products I use.

Eucapro Family Body Wash- eucalyptus or lavender

Eucalyptus oil has antibacterial properties with effective yet gentle cleansing actions. The lavender version, on the other hand, leaves a long lasting scent on the skin after shower. Both lavender and eucalyptus calm eczematous skin and relieve itch. Mr husband works as a surgeon so he needs to perform surgical hand scrubs- resulting in dry and cracked skin, particularly on his hands. He loves how cooling and soothing the body wash.

Eucapro Moisturized Hand Wash and Family Hair Shampoo

I don't have ezcema but frequent hand washing and the need of using alcohol hand rubs dehydrate my skin. It becomes dry and itchy. After using Eucapro handwash, I'm able to clean my hands and keep them moisturised at all times. Unlike many handwash soaps which strips my hands from moisture and wash away my skincare products. The hair shampoo contains Rosemary, Peppermint, Tea Tree, Olive Oil, and Eucalyptus Oil. This unique blend of essential oils hydrate the scalp and protect the hair from damage due to intense hair styling or coloring. I did not even have to use hair conditioner anymore. This simplifies my hair cleansing regime and there's no more bad hair day!

Eucapro offers such a great range of family skincare products which hydrate the skin and  it's great for sensitive skin. Want to know more? Official links as follow:

The secret to health and age reversal | Ageversal by Dr Wu Product Review

I have been getting comments that I look about 10 years younger than my actual age.  Many do not believe that I'm already a mother of two and a general physician. What's my secret?

The first and foremost tip is lead a healthy lifestyle. I cannot stress how important it is to have 2 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables each meal, replace high calorie and sugar loaded beverages with 1.5L plain water a day. Do aerobic exercise for at least 30mins every 2 to 3 days. I quit taking the lift for almost a year now and take stairs up to the 8th floor a few times each day. I have never smoked and say no to alcohol for 4 years already. I also try to make sure I get at least 7 hours of sleep every night,  even though it's usually fragmented as my young children are not sleeping through the night.

Besides that,  good anti-ageing skincare products are extremely important. My favorite product now is none other than Dr Wu's Ageversal series. I rarely go for facial treatments because I just do not have the time to sit for hours in the saloon without needing to attend to my work or family. Instead,  I often steal an hour off during the day to pamper myself.

Ageversal Intensive Repairing Serum with Squalane

Serum is a concentrated concoction of active ingredients designed to tackle certain skin issues such as dehydrated skin. It's often oil like but can be lotion like. Only a few drops are needed each application. Use serum after cleansing and toning. In many ways, the term essence is used interchangeably with serum.

This Ageversal Serum is a multipurpose essence oil and is required only in a single drop. It can be used on its own directly onto a rough and dehydrated skin area for a quick fix. When added to any current moisturiser or serum, it acts to enhance the function whether to boost hydration or repair ageing skin. Ever find it difficult to get an even application of liquid foundation? Add a drop of Ageversal Serum into the foundation and it will no longer be cakey! It can also be used  to smoothen rough skin, as a treatment oil for dry twice a day for the best results.

Squalane oil is produced naturally by our skin which makes up to 12% of total skin surface at birth. That's why baby skin is so soft and smooth. It can also be found in olives,  rice bran and wheat germ. Squalane oil penetrates deep into the skin to provide hydration right at the cellular level, balances sebum production, soothes inflamed skin and promotes collagen production.

Other ingredients include -

L22 Lipid Complex contains plant derived oils that similate the skin surface including Macadamia Seed Oil , Argan Oil and Olive Oil.

Juvenessence is a patented active ingredient that targets Progerin (an age accelerating protein) to improve skin firmness and elasticity.

Lupinus Albus Seed Extract has great antioxidant and emolient properties.

Dunaliella Salina Extract is a type of microalgae found in sea salt fields which is a powerhouse of carotenoid production (aka a potent antioxidant).

In a nutshell, it's a plant derived squalane with essence oils which is lightweight but able to achieve intensive skin repair!

Ageversal Multipeptides Anti-aging Ampoule

Ampoules, on the other hand,  are meant to save the day. When I have a full day ahead but need to appear my best,  I will use ampoules to "supercharge" my skin. It contains even higher concentrations of active ingredients than in serum. Use ampoules before applying serum or essence. Ageversal ampoules are designed for twice a day use.

10 types of multipeptides (including di-,  tri-, tetra-, penta -, hexa-,  octapeptides) in this ampoule at 10 times higher concentration signal the skin cells to produce collagen. The hyaluronic acid in the ampoule also directly improves skin firmness and youthfulness.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

Pampering my face using the ampoule with a slightly viscous texture 

Working in a highly stressful environment,  I really need good skincare products like Ageversal to delay and also reverse certain signs of ageing, particularly sagging skin,  crow feet,  wrinkles and fine lines. Ageversal is a well researched product created by Dr Ying Chin Wu with 40 years of vast clinical experiences and extensive research on skin structure, and a formula based on doctor’s prescription, in order to bring high quality skincare treatments to our homes without needing to go through the needles or spend long hours in the clinics.

I love the instant boost of hydration and the ability to lift the skin, as well as smoothening and softening it. Ageversal is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin as it is made of natural ingredients with no harsh chemicals such as alcohol, parabens and preservatives. It delivers a pleasant floral scent which doubles as an aromatherapy for the face.

Interested to get your own? It's available at Sasa Malaysia outlets!

Supplement towards good health| Second Life Review

Liver is a very important internal organ that removes harmful toxin from the body,  maintains adequate blood sugar level and produces proteins that are essential for good immunity and the body's own ability to heal itself. Bad lifestyle habits such as being sedentary,  poor and unhealthy dietary choices (especially heavy alcohol consumption) as well as highly stressed lifestyle can result in fatty liver and eventually scarring and failure of the liver. Those who have diabetes and high blood pressure are even more susceptible to this.

Second Life

Second Life as a liver tonic

Research has shown the benefit of consuming milk thistle for those with fatty liver. In fact,  our local expert Prof Dr Chan from UMMC advocates this as it contains this active ingredient called sillymarin which can also be used in cases where the liver fails suddenly due to ingestion of toxic wild mushroom. Containing Dukung Anak, a traditional herb with phenolics, lignans and xylans, liver and kidney protective effects are possible. Read more about Dukung Anak here.

Watch this YouTube video for the scientific paper published by Prof Dr Chan.

Second Life as a skincare supplement.

Marine based collagen is proven to be a great skin food. Since natural collagen production dwindles with age,  supplementation helps to make skin supple and elastic. Marine based collagen is of the highest quality and the easiest to absorb. However it's not suitable for those who are allergic to seafood. Read more about collagen supplementation here in my previous post.

Second Life in promoting digestive health and  replenishing nutrition

Many people eat out because they have no time to prepare their own meals.  As a result,  we often consume high calorie food with excessive carbohydrates and fat content which is often lacking in essential nutrients and fibre. This in turn lead to lack of energy and weight gain, as well as indigestion and constipation. As Second Life contains inulin ( a type of dietary fiber called fructan), it helps to relieve bloatedness and regulate our bowel movements. It is also rich in vitamin B, C, D, calcium,  folate, magnesium and zinc.

The sweetness of the supplements comes from isomalt which is a sugar alcohol that tastes sweet without raising blood sugar levels. Isomalt is also tooth friendly. The flavor is further enhanced by using Torula yeast extract which gives the umami factor without the harmful effect of MSG.

How to take Second Life?

Simply open a sachet and pour the powder directly into the mouth. It tastes sweet with the fragrance of mango. A sachet a day will do because excessive isomalt may cause diarrhoea instead. Consume lots of water after that to wash down the supplement.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

Second Life is a convenient supplement with multiple benefits in terms of liver protection, digestive and skin health. Supplements may have no harm and us as doctors can help by monitoring your blood and urine tests if you want to try any supplements. However,  it's always wise to consult your doctors first before starting any supplements. Avoid if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or taking any prescription medications in fear of interactions.

Shaping eyebrows made easy | Andmetics Brow Wax Strips Review

As long as I remember,  I have fairly messy and bushy eyebrows. I started trimming and tweezing but the hairs grow back within a week and usually there will still be many fine hairs being left behind. It is also easy to overtrim the brows resulting in very thin, sometimes assymetrical and artificial looking brows.

Andmetics Brow Wax Strips have made shaping eyebrows so much easier and time saving. All brows will now have the ideal two third up and a third down ratio! The strips already shaped and are ready for use. They are so thin that I can easily bring them and wax my brows anywhere and anytime. Yet another trick to lighten my ever growing luggage size!  (the only downside of traveling with my children)

How to use it?
Watch this official video. I find the model a bit distracting though haha.

1. Each pack comes with 2 sticky wax strips
2. Separate the strips.
3. Stick the wax underneath the brow.
4. Leave the strip for 2 minutes.
5. Remove the strip in a quick pull.
6. Admire the hair removed!
7. Wipe the area clean to remove waxy residues.

This is how messy my brow looked like before waxing. Lots of flimsy baby hairs underneath.

After 2 minutes,  the brow looked much neater. I must say the wax strips managed to remove most of the unsightly hairs. Unlike most waxing products,  Antmetics was relatively painless. Gentle yet effective.

There are also wax strips for upper lips and the area above the nose bridge (in between the eye brows). Just all the spots I need to remove annoying facial hairs from.

Other waxing tips :
1. Before first use,  perform a sensitivity test 24 hours prior by sticking a strip on the upper inner arm.

2. Make sure skin is dry, clean and free from makeup and facial products before use.

3. Avoid waxing after a hot bath.

4. Avoid contact with the eyes and under eyelids.

5. Avoid sunbathing a day after waxing.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

I love how uniform my brows look now without having to worry about fine hairs underneath the brow. As the strips remove hairs from their follicles, it takes about 4 weeks to grow back. That saves me so much brow trimming time and effort! The sticky residue can be removed  easily by gently wiping the area using cleansing wipes.  It gives an instant visible result for my brows.

Where to get Andmetics brow wax strips?

Available at Hermo, Andmetics brow wax strips can also be purchased online from Shopee,  Lazada or Zalora.

Eumora moor facial bar review

We have been extremely busy. Organising course after course; speaking in various meetings,  preparing for Jasper Lodge Kuantan; juggling our full-time doctoring job while caring for 2 young children. These stresses put a toll on my skin,  making it dull and acne prone. Therefore, I'm so excited to try Eumora Moor Facial Bar!

What is Austrian Heilmoor mud?

The use of moor for it's beautifying effect started since ancient Rome and Egypt. Imagine herbs, plants and flowers permanently submerged under water or underground for thousands of years. After the ripening process in the unique environment without oxygen,  moor is produced. Interestingly,  the therapeutic effects of the plants are still retained in moor which creates the main active ingredient in Eumora Facial Bar-suitable for all skin types with a hypoallergenic property.

 It contains all minerals except iodine. The ability to adsorb pollutants and pathogens allows the skin to be cleansed inside out. Moor helps to rebuild the skin into thicker and denser layers so to smoothen wrinkles and reduce skin sagging.  Eumora sources its moor from the highest quality European moor. 

What is Hydration Microalgae Factor (Hma)?

Similar to the structure of collagen,  Hma is derived from Microalgae (Haematococcus P. and Chlorella S) cultivated in fresh water lakes. This hydrates the skin very well while helping to maintain skin elasticity and suppleness. Hma is also suitable for those with sensitive skin in all types of climate. Also rich in vitamin B, it strengthens the skin's natural protective barrier function. As collagen production dwindles with age, external sources like this is essential for anti-ageing properties.

All ingredients used in this facial bar is naturally derived with no harsh chemicals such as paraben, alcohol and SLS. No artificial coloring or fragrance added. Besides that,  it also follows GMP and is Halal certified, vegan friendly and not tested on animals.

How to use Eumora Moor facial bar?

1. Lather a generous amount.
2. Apply onto wet face.
3. Leave on for at least 3 minutes.
4. Rinse off with cold water.

Just a good tip- lather using wet hands instead of running it under water for the bar to last longer. It's about RM75 a bar after all!

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

Using Eumora moor facial bar is like applying a clay mask everyday.  I love how it pampers my skin,  providing it with a boost in hydration and nutrients. As its pH is neutral, it doesn't sting when applied. It helps to relieve these skin problems such as eczema, acne,  uneven skin tone, pigmentation, dark circles and wrinkles.

It is truly a one size fits all skin remedy. One can omit toning, exfoliating and facial with Eumora! Moisturising may be necessary for those with dry skin though. This simplifies my skincare regime so much. It works as good as a needleless face lift!

Facial soap is definitely the new trend now! Grab your own Eumora moor facial bar today. Each packet comes with 4 travel sized facialbar. But the price is a bit steep. Worth spending for youthful skin though I would say.
