My few forays into organic skincare has been a bit of a touch and go. Many were not easily available in Malaysia and I only found so-so results from using them. It must be because I don’t have very very sensitive skin. In fact my skin can be pretty hardy considering the torture I put it through sometimes, in my mad scientist experiments and product testing. Not tested on animals but on me! That should be my tagline eh? haha…

Anyway, I purchased a travel set of Mukti’s skincare from Bodybar Natural Skincare to test to see if I liked them enough to switch over. The set consisted of a gentle facial cleanser, mist toner and a balancing cream. Having been using the Mukti skincare range exclusively at night for a month or so, I think I’m ready with my view on the products.

Mukti Botanicals Organic Skincare

Mukti Botanicals is a line of organic skincare from Australia that uses ingredients that are certified organic by the Australian Government. According to the pledge at Mukti’s website, they state that they “only utilise the purest & highest grade certified organic and natural ingredients, therefore, a little of our product goes a long way.”

I cannot vouch for their organic certification, but I can vouch for a little going a long way. I really like the Mukti Rosehip Eye gel (product not packaging) and I can safely say that a little goes a long way.

I hope everyone had a good break during the Chinese New Year holidays. I certainly did! Traffic was a little crazy coming back to KL yesterday but with careful and patient driving, it didn’t end up too bad.

When I went back to my hometown to spend Chinese New Year with my family this year, I took home a set of travel brushes from Momo Minerals that I’d purchased from Singapore through the help of a lovely friend. You meet the nicest people online, I swear! I first read about Momo Minerals’ brushes from Vivawoman.

Momo minerals brush set

The set is very dinky and travel friendly, even coming in its own slim pouch that has a zippered compartment for storing some small makeup items or tissue. Its just a little larger than a lipgloss and not much thicker or bulkier and I really liked that.

The brushes have very short handles and very soft synthetic bristles. I was a little concerned about the usability of the powder and blush brushes. They felt a little too soft and I was worried that the small head of the blush brush might result in clown cheeks.

Lancome new Oscillation Mascara – prelaunch sale

More than half a year after I first wrote about Lancome’s new Oscillation mascara (the vibrating one) Malaysia is getting it, but only in April 2009. If you can’t wait you can be one of the lucky 400 persons to purchase this at the pre launch sales only at KLCC Isetan.

I recently tested this one – you can’t really see the oscillation but you can feel the buzz. Plus can you say visibly thick and long lashes? Yes, it works – to a degree.
