Review: Nuxe Nuxellence Jeunesse - Youth and Radiance Revealing Fluid

Age is an issue of mind over matter, if you don't mind, it doesn't matter. But skin aging is a matter of body, soul and spirit. If your skin looks dull and tired, then it is unhealthy and unable to respond well towards skincare. Time to rejuvenate the skin! 

Recently I found NUXE, a Parisian brand from SASA Malaysia, it's Nuxellence Jeunesse which means Nuxe Excellence Youthfulness in French. Certain anti-aging products may be too strong for my 'young' skin, but this NUXE product is mild and suits all ages. 

What is Nuxellence Jeunesse?

It's NUXE's No.1 face care product in France, and the world's first youth and
radiance revealing fluid using natural floral ingredients and innovative formula. 

How Does Nuxellence Jeunesse Work?

In the heart of our skin, mitochondria supply the cells with the energy to function properly. As we age, the function of the mitochondria deteriorates and the cells de-charge themselves daily. So Nuxellence Jeunesse mainly uses active ingredients in 3 types of flowers (Passionflower, Anchusa, Poppy), to help repairs mitochondrial DNA to reveal the skin’s youth and radiance. 

Passionflower, Anchusa and Poppy increase 43% repair of damaged mitochondrial DNA.

NUXE also incorporates an exclusive 10 patents to enhance the performance 
of its best patented active ingredients to produce Nuxellence Jeunesse:

Calendula Petals, Araucaria Seeds, natural-original Hyaluronic Acid and Galanga Leaves 
help diminish and smoothen wrinkles and fine lines, and restore the plumpness of the skin.

Maca Root, Olive Leaves and Cocoa Cells help restore the skin's youthful radiance.

Nuxellence Jeunesse may not be too fancy-looking, but it comes in a solid metallic pump bottle 
which is able to protect the fluid from heat and also withstand strong forces.

One thing I love about the product is its packaging. You have to turn the cap anti-clockwise and the 
opening of the pump will show. This prevents leakage and I'm able to bring it around for travel.

The fluid has a light texture, pretty close to an emulsion that  leaves the skin infinitely soft and velvety.
Its fondant and slightly pinkish tone blends well with the skin too.

As an essential daily skincare for ladies, it can be used in the morning and night for those with normal skin and combination skin, or under a cream to pamper the dry to very dry skin. Simply put 1 to 2 pumps on your palm, heat it in your hands and apply it over your face and neck. A little can go a long way, so one 50ml can last up to months!

Its removable pump system only needs to be pressed ONCE to deliver sufficient amount for the whole face! 

The instantaneous effect I can see is a smoother, more supple skin. It feels as if it moisturizes my skin, and enhance the radiance in it. After a month of using it, wrinkles and fine lines should be reduced greatly. For my skin, it gives a more even complexion and now the skin is more plump. 

Another feature I love about the product is its delicate fragrance which is infused with subtle Linseed Flower, Lily of the Valley, Heliptrope, Mandarin and Necatrine notes. The soothing fragrance is light and feminine with soft lovely floral notes.

NUXE products are: 

☑ Eco-friendly! Only uses natural active ingredients
☑ No mineral oils, coloring agents and animal-origin ingredients
☑ Free from paraben and preservatives
☑ Suitable for all ages and all skin types

NUXE Nuxellence Jeunesse is exclusively available at all SASA outlets in Malaysia.

Cornery, The Popcorn Gallery @ Low Yat Plaza, KL

If you ask me what kind of food can be so popular and timeless over the decades, the first thing that comes into my mind is popcorn. Look at the long queue everytime you go for a movie, it seems like popcorn is a must-have movie companion. But recently popcorn has gone beyond that; It's time to experience a whole new world of endless possibilities...

Recently landed on Malaysia is Cornery, the popcorn gallery which offers an ultimate customer experience where you not only taste the popcorn, but also see, hear and smell it by yourself.

Originated from Singapore, Cornery is one of the popcorn connoisseurs to provide quality, gourmet popcorns to Universal Studios Singapore, Marina Bay Sands theatres and TGV cinemas in Singapore.

You may have already known many popcorn outlets in Malaysia, but what makes Cornery different from others is the open-concept kitchen that allows you to watch popcorns being made right before your eyes. Here you can sample, pick and watch how to make your favourite popcorns!

Great ingredients make great tasting food, that's why Cornery uses only United States grown premium popcorn kernels.

The first step of making popcorn is to insert popcorn kernels into the air popper, and allow it to expand. Yes you can make microwave popcorn / oil-popped popcorn, but Cornery chooses hot-air-popped corn because it is lower in calories, cleaner and healthier!

All the kernels are evenly popped, and in fact the sizes are pretty standard too. 
I manage to grab a handful of the unflavoured popcorns, and they are chewy and smell good. 

I love the concept of knowing what I'm getting. It's my first time experiencing the making of Cornery's bestselling flavour, Butterscotch Popcorn. Brown sugar and butter are left to boil, and once the concoction is ready, simply pour in the popcorns and stir them well. 

The manual stirring process is pretty tedious as you need to continuously stir the mixture with extra effort, so that they will be evenly coated with butterscotch and will not clump together. Now I understand why the popcorns from cinemas are sometimes too bland or overflavoured sometimes due to automated stirring.

I didn't know that Cornery popcorns are all handmade until I put my hands on the making! And I love seeing the pools of mini popcorns that exude strong delicious aroma that fills the entire space. 

Look at the cute babies! They're just so beautiful =)

In terms of size, color and flavor, the quality is pretty consistent for separate batches of popcorns. Besides butterscotch, it comes in an extensive variety of new, fun and unconventional gourmet popcorn flavours. To date, Cornery has the widest variety – over 22 flavours – ranging from original to candied as well as savoury, which includes the unique Asian flavours: Tom Yum, Curry, Wasabi, Tandoori Chicken, Kimchi and Seaweed.

However, for Cornery Malaysia, they begin their venture with 12 popular flavours, and today I get to sample 7 of the crowd's favourites. Besides Butterscotch that tops my favourite list, what comes second is the Peanut flavour that appears surprisingly moist and rich than what I've expected! 

Others served in-store are Caramel, Black Sesame, Banana, Green Tea and Grape Soda. Another noteworthy flavour is Chocolate, because of its robust flavour from the Dark Chocolate that does not taste cloying at all. Banana is a welcome change from the range of fruity flavours too. 

Well, my advice is, sample all you want before deciding which flavour to buy! 

Cornery's gourmet popcorn is packed fresh upon order, because they know how disappointed you'd feel with pre-packed popcorn that turns stale. The airtight zipper and double sealing on its specially designed packaging  can keep the product fresh and crispy for 2 - 3 weeks, even in humid tropical climate!

(From left to right) It comes in 3 sizes:
Large Pack (2500ml) @ RM20 
Regular Pack (1100ml) @ RM10 
Grab Pack (700ml) @ RM7  

Cornery Malaysia's first concept store is currently located next to Low Yat Plaza food court, 
and you can notice the outlet from the roadside along Jalan Bulan. 

If you're staying in Setapak, Cornery is coming nearer to you by the end of September 2013!
Drop by at KL Festival City mall and enjoy various opening promotions!

For the whole month of October, you can grab yummy popcorns at a fraction of the original price.
Grab the Grab Pack (N/P: RM7) in Cornery KL Festival City at only RM2!
Note: Daily promo starts at 2pm onwards for first 20 customers.

See you there @ Cornery KL Festival City on 29 September 2013!

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear Are Now In Malaysia

The latest additions to Samsung Galaxy's family has just landed in Malaysia this morning. This time it is not just an introduction of a new phone, Samsung has excited the world with the first generation of smart timepiece- a Samsung Galaxy Gear, that currently works best with the most-anticipated Samsung Galaxy Note 3

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9000 and Galaxy Gear grand launch in Malaysia 
allowed me to have a quick hands-on with the phone and watch.

Dimension: 151.2 x 79.2 x 8.3 mm (168g)

Fiddling with the new gadgets, I am impressed that Note 3 is only 8.3mm thick (1.1mm thinner than Note 2), at the same time being smaller and lighter yet the 5.7 inches super AMOLED touch screen is larger than the preceding generation with only 5.5 inches.

I was comparing my Galaxy Note 2 (on left) with the latest Note 3 (on right). 
I love the way the Galaxy Note 3 appears sleeker with a larger screen display.

Unlike Note 2 which is more prone to fingerprints, the back cover of Samsung Galaxy Note 3
 features a textured leather, which enables a better comfort of gripping. 

The improved S Pen is another great improvement in Note 3. Once the S Pen is pulled out, the Air Command appears on screen to give you options to draw and doodle around, but also place apps (more than one) on parts of the screen while you're browsing the app drawer, homescreen, browser, etc. The S Pen is now a genuine multitasking tool. 

All thanks to its high-capacity 3,200mAh battery and Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) powerful Quad-core 2.3 GHz processor, Note 3 is now faster, last for long hours and therefore truly a device for multitasking. Incorporated with a robust 3GB RAM and the latest in LTE technologies through its CAT4 Carrier Aggregation, the GALAXY Note 3 delivers significant speed and power for everyday usage. 

Samsung KNOX Privacy Safeguard

For a secure mobile experience, the GALAXY Note 3 comes with enhanced privacy and security protection provided by Samsung KNOX where you can store security-sensitive applications and data inside a protected "container" with no worries for data leakage. 

Afraid of losing your smart phone? No worries, Note 3 now has an  improved Find My Mobile feature that allows people to disable the phone when it is stolen or lost, and then remotely track or erase the data from their lost or stolen devices.

Samsung also introduces the GALAXY Lifestyle Rewards where you can enjoy different content and services with free trials, discounts and complimentary offers. Some of the exclusive rewards include TM WiFi, Dropbox, Evernote, MPHOnline, The Star and more.

Another spec I find it very important is the 13MP rear camera with Smart Stabilization and high CRI LED flash. I've experienced how awesome the pictures I took during concerts using Galaxy S4, now Note 3 has even better capability to produce sharp, vivid images including under low light and moving-object condition.

Galaxy Note 3 is available in 3 colours: Jet Black, Classic White and Blush Pink.
Aww, pink is such a sweet colour that is simply irresistible for ladies! 
Colorify your Galaxy Note 3 with the metallic back covers!

...or with the colorful S View Cover!

Samsung has successfully linked technology with fashion, with the introduction of the Galaxy Gear Smart Watch which works as a companion device for Galaxy phones via Bluetooth, although initially it will only pair with the Note 3. Updates would be available soon so that it would allow the watch to pair with Galaxy S3, S4 and Note 2.
The Gear has a 1.63-inch, 320x320-pixel super AMOLED screen surrounded by a metal frame and comes with a 1.9-megapixel camera that can take photos and videos, and then automatically retrievable on your paired phone. 

A phone app called Gear Manager is used to control everything on the Gear.
The Gear's battery is not as powerful but able to last for a day, 
with a dedicated charging dock to charge the Gear. 

The Gear allows you get notifications from your phone, as well as answer calls, control music and access to over 60 compatible apps. For instance, it has a built-in "find my phone" feature (which causes your Galaxy phone to play music) and an auto lock that will lock a phone when the Gear is more than 1.5m away.

Some of the Apps that can be used on your Smart Watch, Galaxy Gear.

It is available in Jet Black, Mocha Gray, Wild Orange,
Rose Gold, Lime Green and Oatmeal Beige.

...bringing you to the next level of technology from a smart pocket device to a truly wearable technology.

Models were showcasing the Galaxy Note 3 and Gear. I love how the minimalist design of the watch 
that suits both men and women in their everyday use- be it for work or casual wear.

Ultimately, I feel that Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear are the must-have devices 
to make everyday task easier and more enjoyable to complete!

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy Gear retails at RM2,199 and RM999 respectively,
do check them out  at major Samsung outlets from 25 September 2013 onwards!
