Its the weekend tomorrow! Doesn’t time just FLY by?
It was just last weekend that I played host to relatives from overseas who wanted to shop till they dropped. I think they did because I certainly did! I think they had fun though – I had a great time staying up till late chatting to one of my favorite aunts I had not seen in years.
As we head into the weekend, here are 2 new and upcoming products to whet your appetite.
SunPlay Skin Aqua UV Face Cream and Face Gel Sunscreen
These new sunscreens by SunPlay look very promising. I was not much impressed by the previous SunPlay sunscreens that promised SPF of the hundreds. However, the new Skin Aqua UV Face Cream of SPF50 PA+++ and Skin Aqua Face Fel of SPF25 PA++ look promising, based on the ingredients.
They contain Zinc Oxide as one of their main ingredients, which is what caught my eye most. We all know that Zinc Oxide is one of the best physical blockers for UVB and UVA so to have it in a product that’s affordable and easily accessible is promising. Reviews will come as I try them out. I’d like to see if the Zinc Oxide will leave a white cast on my skin as they did with my other sunscreen.
L’oreal White Perfect Rosy Whitening Radiance Boosting Double Essence – RM62.90
This is a new product debuting in May 2009. The new L’oreal Rosy Radiance Boosting Double Essence is packaged like the other double essences and contains tourmaline to promote whitening and a rosy look to the skin.
This new essence feels light and has a really cute pink and white color. It is supposed to reduce the yellow tones of the skin and reflect a pinker rosier outlook. We need a rosy outlook in these troubled financial times don’t we? 😉 I don’t know how that will work or how effective it will be, so we’ll have to see as time goes by.
What are your weekend plans?
So how was your week? Do you have any plans for the weekend?
I’m thinking of picking up a cardigan from Zara and maybe tea with a friend or maybe even squeeze in a visit to a friend’s baby – hopefully he’ll be in a better mood to see me this time instead of bawling his head off 🙂
Wait a min… I thought I was supposed to have a more relaxing weekend?! haha…
Happy weekend and stay beautiful!

looking forward to see your l’oreal essence review. 🙂 but for some reasons, almost all of the l’oreal products break me out. it works pretty good for my mom though.
this sun im heading to tropicana city mall body bar to meet yuan! woohooo excited i am
Sometimes, some product formulations just don’t work for some people. I’m really curious about the L’oreal essence too! I’ll be sure to update. Oh yeah I read about Yuan visiting body bar. Have fun!
Oh PB, I can’t wait for this!! Cos I’m going to beach next weekend, and been thinking what sunblock to buy this time. Wait for you ya 😀
I’m not sure if the review will come in time for your beach holiday! I just got the sunscreen yesterday LOL…
Us being working women! Will definitely enjoy weekend doing more stuffs! LOL I will be going out on a date with my hubby on Saturday, probably try out a new restaurant and rest and do my nails on sunday lol 🙂
Sounds like you have a nice relaxing weekend all planned! Enjoy the weekend.
Hi PB, may I know where do you get the SunPlay Skin Aqua and how much of them? I bought 4 bots of this in JP, and already finished them. Wanted to get them desperately. Thanks.
They are available at Guardian and Watsons and if I’m not mistaken the price is RM29.90 for the SPF25 and RM39.90 for the SPF50 or thereabouts – they’re that good huh? 🙂
yes, they are good, i am using SFP25 on my body, don feel sticky and oily at all after fully penetrated. THANKS.
Aweseome! Thanks! 🙂
Ohh PB,i know what u mean..it was just like yesterday that I entered college and now I’m a working gal..;)
I’m off to a shopping breeze this weekend too…so pray my credit card doesn’t burst, hehe! Have a great weekend PB!
Isn’t it fun being a working gal?! 😀 Shopping sounds like loads of fun – boost the economy yes? 😉 Enjoy the weekend.
i also got the UV gel! but weird, i din see the milk! I need to go get them 😛
where did u see them? 😀
and just my opinion, the gel doesn’t leave a white cast 🙂 and it’s pretty nice to use, tho oil control is close to nothing (not like it promised), but hm, i think it didn’t really help to make my foundie oxidize slower, in fact i feel like it made my foundie look uglier… >_<
need more time to test!
They are available at Guardian and Watsons. I just tried the milk one today. Its decent – not too liquid like the other Sunplay sunscreens. Nice to hear your thoughts on it. Did they promise oil control? I did not see that but I’ll be monitoring it. Thanks
oh!~ I can’t wait for your review on sunplay!~ L’oreal double essence seems nice…but quite hesitant to get it. lol. L’oreal products tend to break me out. =(
Soon I promise! 🙂 Already started the testing period. Sorry to hear that about L’oreal. I’ve heard it happen often – perhaps its the fragrance in the product?
Looking forward to the Sunplay review. Sunplay fan here 🙂
Coming up soon! Preliminary views are pretty positive though 🙂
