Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System

Some of us might not have the budget for a Clarisonic…but, hey, what about this one?

skincare-facial-cleansing-device-anti-aging-set


For the past years, I’m sure you have witnessed the popularity of facial cleansing devices, dominated by best-selling brand Clarisonic. It took a while before beauty brands recognized the strong potential from this new beauty segment but it wasn’t too late for brands like Clinique and Olay to jump in the beauty device wagon.

While I think that Clarisonic is a worthy investment for good facial cleansing system, not everyone would have a budget of RM600+ to enjoy the benefits of a cleansing device. I wasn’t highly keen on trying out a cleansing device before but while shopping online at www.watsons.com.my, I received a free Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System (worth around RM129) together with my purchase of RM150 of selected brands. I love online shopping and I love free stuff!

This facial cleansing device set comes in Olay’s black and red box. The box set contains: 1 facial cleansing device, 1 brush head, 1 skin renewal cleanser 20ml and 2 AA batteries.

Benefits of Olay Regenerist Cleansing System:
  • Up to 4x better cleansing than cleanser alone (tested on removing makeup vs. cleanser alone)
  • Gently exfoliates
  • Delivers daily deep cleansing
  • Renewal Cleanser primes the skin for anti-aging regimen
  • Device has 2-speed control, is water-resistant and easy to hold


What results to expect:
  • Skin is instantly cleaner, feels fresher
  • Skin texture is improved and smoother with continuous use

I like that Duracell batteries are already included in this boxed set. Don’t you just hate it when you discover that you need batteries for something you just bought or received? It’s also easy to install the 2 batteries on the device. Gently rock the battery compartment (on the base) side to side while pulling to release battery cover. Then insert the 2 batteries and push back the cover. Reminder, do not mix old and new batteries.

The device has 2 rubber buttons, 1 to switch it on or off and 1 to control speed. I prefer to use basic speed versus the faster one but this will depend on your personal preference.

This set comes with 1 brush head, which is easy to snap onto the device. It is recommended to replace the brush head every 3 months. I haven’t replaced mine after more than 3 months, haha, but it still works fine and, don’t worry, the brush head is not disgusting or dirty-looking (yet).

A 20ml skin renewal cleanser is packed inside this set but you don’t necessarily need to use it together with the device. We all have our preferred cleanser so feel free to use the device with your favorite brand. I have a habit of trying new brands and products every now and then. I’ve used the Olay Cleansing Device with different brands like Garnier, Neutrogena and Shizens.

For the past 6 months, I’ve been using this device every evening to cleanse my face. Initially, I tried using it day and night but I developed a few pimples, around 2-3 (oh yes, I will count them coz I rarely get these!), so I decided to slow down and use it at night only. For someone who has not tried cleansing devices before, it probably ‘surprised’ my skin. When I limited use to once a day, the pimples stopped, yay! And the fun starts.

My skin does feel instantly cleaner, in a different way than it feels with normal deep cleansing without a device. And though it’s not Clarisonic, I’d say it does a good job in complementing my skin-cleansing regimen. So if you want to start exploring facial cleansing devices and you’re on a tight budget, the Olay Regenerist Advanced Cleansing System is good bet.


Replacement cleansing brush heads are available at www.watsons.com.my - RM29.90 for a boxed set of 2 pieces

Reebonz Makes A Perfect Hari Raya with Luxury Accessories at Friendly Prices

Look Perfectly Put Together This Hari Raya with Timeless Luxury Accessories From Reebonz

reebonz_malaysia_bags_shoes_raya_fashion

While getting ready for special occasions and events can be exciting and fun, it can also be daunting when trying to put that perfect look altogether and make it work. Many of us who will be celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri and hosting or going to numerous open houses, would have picked out the fabric and colors for each day’s ensemble, or we may have bought off-the-rack, while the rest of us are still searching, and growing increasingly frantic! It can take hours, days and weeks of searching for the right fashion picks that not only fit us nicely but also create our fashion statement and identity.

However, even the most beautifully designed and embellished designer outfit may seem unfinished if not paired with the perfect accessories be they handbags, shoes, wallets or jewellery.


Reebonz (pronounced ‘ribbons’), Asia’s trusted online shopping destination for buying and selling the widest variety of luxury brands has an amazing selection of handbags, shoes, small leather goods and jewellery to complete your look. All items sold through the Reebonz platform, both new and pre-loved are guaranteed authentic, and are often available at significant savings through the many sale events on the site.

Trends For Hari Raya Aidilfitri
Reebonz experts have curated some of the key accessories, colours, shapes and sizes for the festive season and beyond for the stylista in each of us.

The secret to successful Hari Raya accessorising is to choose timeless pieces that can be used after the festivities as well.  As a rule, traditional attire such as baju kurung, baju kebaya, jubah and abaya are best complemented by structured classic shapes, and elegant heeled footwear.

Key colors for Hari Raya include white, yellow and green (ladies, take note of these colors!) as well as classic black and shades of gold for formal dinner events.

Luxury comes in many levels and the Reebonz’ Online Price before further markdowns is always more attractive than the recommended retail price at designer boutiques. For the best value at Reebonz, stalk your favorite items for when they are at their lowest price, which could be during special sale events, at clearance or when it is the last piece available.  

Handbags Trends
Tote bags are functional and ideal for work and weekends. Choosing a structured leather tote with bold hardware can add contrast or subtly complement an outfit. For Hari Raya consider the Michael Kors Jet Set Medium Travel Multifunction Tote in Sun, the upbeat preppy look of the Sophie Hulme Mini Tote Saddle Bag, and Miuccia’s latest saffiano leather collection – Prada Saffiano Cuir Double Bag.
