Daily: Aim for Better Health with Diamond Coral Alkaline Water

Our body is our vessel. We need to ensure that our health is optimum for our body to function at its peak. But with our hectic day to day lifestyle, we tend to neglect our health. Well, there is now a simple way to maintain our health; with Diamond Coral Alkaline Water. Diamond is a trusted brand and has served more than 1 million customers over the years. Since I was young, my mum has always emphasize to us the importance of drinking water. Adults require about 8-10 cups of water per day while children is approximately 3-5 cups daily. But, even if we drink enough water, have you ever stop to think if the water we're consuming is clean and good for the body?

Drinking alkaline water is ideal for the body as health scientists have discovered that many illnesses arise due to the acidic nature of the body. So, consuming Diamond Coral Alkaline Water will neutralise the acidity and improve health in the long run.

I've recently tried out the Diamond Coral Alkaline Water filter at home as I have heard many good recommendations about it. Personally, after trying it for some time now, I've noticed several health benefits. Firstly, I noticed that my headaches are less frequent these days and I feel much lighter as a whole. I used to get a lot of headaches in the past, and this was due to my acidic physique it seems. I find that this water is beneficial for me as I've noticed that I have stopped getting mouth ulcers after starting to consume the Diamond Coral Alkaline Water. This may sound funny, but I really like the taste of alkaline water, as I find that it doesn't have the overwhelming mineral taste.

The Diamond Coral Alkaline Water comes with 6 filters!

As a beauty junkie, I was ecstatic when I heard that you could utilise this alkaline water as a mask or just as a facial spray to brighten up your complexion. Well, I don't have much wrinkles or laugh lines, but I do have some areas of uneven skin tone. 

So, I have been religiously using the Diamond Coral Alkaline Water as a facial spray and I've noticed that my skin tone is more even now, just after 1 week. It is a good idea to use this facial spray on a hot day when you want to freshen yourself up after a long day.

With all these benefits of Diamond Coral Alkaline Water, I'd recommend that every household purchase this particular water filter to keep your health in tip top condition.

Daily: Bausch & Lomb Soflens Daily Disposable Review

To have the freedom of looking and feeling great while enjoying what you're doing is amazing! I loathe wearing glasses, it's definitely not trendy and makes me look so much older than I actually am. This is why I have always resorted to wearing lens on a daily basis. Recently, I've tried out the Bausch & Lomb Soflens Daily Disposable which boasts on its UNIFIT comfort design, just for the perfect fit. Previously, I've encountered a situation with another contact lens brand, where I rubbed my eyes a little too hard and my lens just fell out without me realizing. Therefore, when I heard about the UNIFIT comfort design on the Bausch & Lomb Soflens Daily Disposable, I know I definitely have to give it a try.

Plus, Bausch & Lomb is an established brand certified and recommended by eye care professionals. It is a reliable and safe brand for usage. Your eyes are the windows to your soul, so it is important to ensure that your eyes are healthy, even with usage of contact lens.

The lens come in a box of 5 pair (10 contact lenses) and they are disposable daily. Personally, I prefer to wear daily lenses as it is more hygienic that way. 

I really enjoyed my experience with the Bausch & Lomb Soflens Daily Disposable because I find that I could wear them from morning till night without experiencing any discomfort and redness as well. It is suitable to wear at night, under low light condition as the lenses have the High Definition Optics technology which gives you clear and crisp vision during night time. It is made using the Hilafilcon B material with the Comfort Moist technology to ensure comfort all day by keeping your eyes moist. 

The lens is thin and visibly tinted. Therefore, it looks natural even when I wear it. Well, I would say, it almost feels and looks like I'm not even wearing any lens. 

For those first timers who plan to try out the Bausch & Lomb Soflens Daily Disposable, here are some tips of how to have a safe experience with your contact lenses.

  • Before starting, always wash your hands with mild soap to ensure that they are clean before handling the lenses.
  • When removing the lenses from the packaging, always rinse it with some saline solution first before inserting in your eye.
  • Place your lens on your index fingertip and ensure that it is a bowl shaped, just like in the picture above.
  • Pull down your lower lid with your middle finger of the same hand you have the lenses on.
  • Use the fingers of the other hand to lift your upper lid.
  • Ensure that you are looking straight ahead, as you insert the lenses.
  • Close your eyes once the lens is in and it will move to the center by itself.
  • To remove lens, similarly, look straight ahead and use both thumb and index finger to gently pinch the lens out.


If you experience some form of discomfort, you can remove the lens and clean it with a multi-purpose solution, as shown in the video. Always remember to clean the lens from center outwards.

Check out and Facebook of Bausch & Lomb MY for more details on the lenses.

Great news to all Disney lipbalm fans! The LipIce Tinted Lipbalm has a brand new look and comes in a cute, convenient tube. I really don't like having chapped lips, so this is a lifesaver for me. The black and pink design definitely give it a young and vibrant feel!

Beauty: Mist Eyebrow Embroidery @ Luminous Beauty Parlour, Desa Park City

It's been almost a year plus since I last had my eyebrow embroidery done. It was honestly getting a bit tedious as I haven't been drawing in my eyebrows since then. But, eyebrow embroideries usually lasts for that amount of time anyway, before you have to get a new one done. So, I was on the lookout for a place which does the Mist Eyebrow Embroidery technique as I've heard that this is the latest technology. There is less pain for this method and of course, that was what attracted me at first. 

I decided to try it out at the newly opened Luminous Beauty Parlour @ Desa Park City. The place was exceptionally beautiful for a beauty salon in my opinion. It was well lit and decorated in white hues.

Well, for girls, this is an ideal place to take some OOTDs too! And, they do provide manicure services at the salon as well.

The beautician have to first draw the outline and shape of the brows before beginning on the embroidery. If you've done it previously, she will usually just follow back the similar shape.

After determining and drawing the right shape, some numbing cream will be applied to the brows area. Even though this method isn't as painful as the usual 6D embroidery, it is best to apply the numbing cream as everyone have different pain tolerance.

She then begins the embroidery from the tail of the brow, all the way to the front. This process takes approximately 10-20 minutes per brow. I find that she was very precise and put great care in ensuring that I was comfortable throughout the procedure.

A close up shot of the brows

After the embroidery, I had to apply this healing gel to improve the color absorption of the brows for 7 days. It is a colourless and odourless gel which dries out pretty quickly, so everytime I washed my face, it was advisable for me to reapply.

Thank you for such a great job on the brows, absolutely love it as it is very natural looking. I've listed the pros and cons below for those who are concerned.

- Less pain
- No downtime
- Natural looking

- None

This is what my brows look like after 7 days and I'm quite satisfied with the result :)

Great news for those who wanna try it out! There is a promotion and it's only RM 380 for a Mist Eyebrow Embroidery session.

Daily: Celebrating One Million Ultherapy Treatment Worldwide!

Merz Aesthetics announced today that Ultherapy® is celebrating the milestone achievement of providing one million treatments globally.  Since its global launch in 2008, the non-invasive ultrasound device has become a game-changer in physician offices worldwide by using the body’s own regenerative response to gently and naturally stimulate collagen growth. This revolutionary treatment is the only U.S FDA-cleared non-invasive skin-lift for neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now Authentic Ultherapy™ is also U.S FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the d├ęcolletage.

This treatment can be utilised on the face and neck area, especially for those who are concerned over their eye bags. Due to frequent Sun exposure, the UV rays have the potential to reduce the elasticity of our skin and increase pigmentation on our face. 

Ultherapy® is frequently requested in my office because it’s non-invasive, naturally stimulates collagen growth, and provides visible results. Because of this, the treatment has become a favorite among my patients, so it is no surprise that it has reached such a remarkable milestone,” states Dr Cheok Jia Rhong, Aesthetic Medicine Practitioner (LCP Holder). “Not only does the treatment deliver these incredible benefits, it also requires little to no downtime, allowing those treated with Ultherapy® to quickly get back to their everyday routines.”

Making the treatment even more popular among physicians, Ultherapy®’s proprietary DeepSEE™ ultrasound imaging allows physicians to see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure energy is deposited where it will be most beneficial.  This unique technology is supported by more than 50 clinical studies, more than 60 published, peer reviewed papers, and over 100 patents worldwide.

“We’re extremely proud to be celebrating this milestone of treating one million patients with Ultherapy® on a global scale,” said Philip Burchard, Chief Executive Officer, Merz Pharma. “Ultherapy® continues to lead in the category due to its breakthrough, award-winning innovation, our dedicated physicians, and consistent patient satisfaction. We look forward to celebrating the next million treatments.”

The best part of this treatment is it utilises microfocal ultrasound which targets 3 layer of the skin and there is absolutely NO DOWNTIME! For natural results which can last up to 1 year with just a single session, it is highly recommended to try out this treatment.

Merz Malaysia will be celebrating the physicians who played a role in the success of Ultherapy’s® 1 Million Treatment achievement worldwide.
