Just this week, I had one of the most interesting beauty experiences I’ve ever had and I just had to share it with you as soon as I possibly could, not because I had to (I was specifically told that I didn’t have to blog about this if I didn’t want to but hey, who tells me what to blog or not to blog about eh? icon razz Go on an olfactory Fragrance Journey with Chanel at their Espace Parfum at KLCC ) but because you too can experience it for yourself! It’s not like a special blogger-only privilege and I know there are those amongst you who enjoy perfumes as well, or maybe just want to learn a little more like I did icon smile Go on an olfactory Fragrance Journey with Chanel at their Espace Parfum at KLCC

What I did was go on a 3 hour Fragrance Journey with Chanel at their Espace Parfum boutique at Suria KLCC and I was enthralled. Ok, it’s not really a 3 hour journey. It was 3 hours for me because I kept interrupting and making strange statements like “It smells like a salad!” (Les Exclusifs Bel Respiro) that I’m sure quite exasperated Fragrance Specialist, Gwen Chew who was my fragrance guide. Sorry, Gwen icon biggrin Go on an olfactory Fragrance Journey with Chanel at their Espace Parfum at KLCC

If you weren’t already aware (and I wasn’t), Chanel has a standalone fragrance boutique, Espace Parfum, at KLCC just outside of Parkson. In this store you will find all 56 Chanel perfumes available to date, including the Les Exclusifs range, which is only available here at this store.

It is also here that you can take an olfactory fragrance journey with the in-house Chanel Fragrance Specialist, who can help you pick YOUR Chanel scent or if you are like me, a Chanel fragrance virgin, take you through and see what you might like. The result can be very surprising (it was for me) and if you enjoy fragrances, a very insightful and interesting time, learning about fragrance, Coco Chanel and the influences behind each scent.

A while ago, I told you about the Neal’s Yard Remedies Rejuvenating Frankincense Facial oil and how much I really liked it, and still do. I love the scent and how relaxing it is and how lovely it makes my skin feel. So, when I put the Frankincense Intense Cream to the test, I expected to fall in love with it too.

This is an anti-aging cream made of natural and organic ingredients, as with everything from Neal’s Yard Remedies and was launched late last year. Housed in a lovely deep blue glass jar, the otherwise plainly labelled Frankincense Intense cream uses as its key ingredients, Frankincense which has anti-inflammatory properties and helps even out fine lines and wrinkles, and Gardenia stem cells to help boost the production of collagen in the skin.

As the name and function implies, this one’s targeted at those who have such concerns, which would be those of a more mature skin type. It isn’t to say that you couldn’t use it in your 20’s, although you might not derive the best results from it. But how did I like it?

A few months ago, when RMK launched their new eye shadow brushes, I picked one out of the bunch to try, because it was interesting and because I don’t see brushes like this very often.

It is the RMK Eye Shadow Brush C, which doesn’t tell us very much does it? icon biggrin Exploring the multiple versatile uses of the RMK Eyeshadow Brush C

The Brush C is fairly short in length, but a comfortable length for most of us because when you try to get close to the mirror for detailed work, it’s useful not having the long handle bumping against the mirror. The bristles are natural hair and are 100% goat hair.

What made this brush interesting is because is angled to fit the contours of the eye and face better, but it is a round brush, with an angled flat top that reminds me of a slightly looser foundation brush like this. I asked the visiting RMK Makeup Artist how it was to be used, and he showed me that it was useful for applying strong or pigmented colours because it blends it out so it doesn’t look too strong on skin and picks up product well.

Last week, we were discussing whether we washed our faces after going for a facial and I was quite gratified that so many of us do the same thing i.e. wash our faces when we get home. Among the most interesting discussions however, I noticed how many of us take an evening shower, which necessitates us washing our faces. And as usual, the curious cat in me perked up.

shower ampm Your Say: Do you shower in the morning or evening or both?

I started wondering if most of you showered in the mornings or in the evenings, or perhaps even both?

Here where it’s so hot and humid all the time, it’s tempting to shower not only twice, but maybe even three times a day! I know of people who do. So, how about you? Are you a morning showerer, evening showerer or perhaps twice a day? icon biggrin Your Say: Do you shower in the morning or evening or both?
