POTBOY X FAVE | Free Online Grocery Delivery

Offline Cashless Shopping anyone?
Waddup guys! Having a busy lifestyle, it gets a little hard to plan your day ahead, especially when there are groceries to accomplish. Don't get me wrong, I still love grocery shopping cause I find it therapeutic to plan on what to buy, picking ingredients which leads to your menu, the things that you want to do at home for the week, and more! But let's be honest, sometimes we get too busy that we don't have time to do groceries, which then leads you in a delay of chores and things to do at home, am I right? Now, what if I told you there's someone you can depend on to get the job done?

The delivery bikes
Dettols offer for the day
Has anyone treid the lowest sugar carbonated isotonic drink by 100plus?
Pokka was there too giving you offers you wouldn't want to miss
Even the parents are in it with diapers by Kao
Earlier this month, I attended the Potboy Groceries online-to-offline groceries sale, which happens to be the first of its kind in Malaysia. Since the event was around the area I stayed in, I've decided to just make my way to see what this online-to-offline grocery thing is all about. It was throughout three-days in which I've only made time to visit on the last day over lunchtime and boy I got hooked till evening. So the idea of Potboy is that you are now able to make payment via Favepay, a mobile payment application to give you a cashless/cardless experience.

Just look at that, CHEAP STUFF!
A dream for maggi lovers
What made me went crazy while I was there were the prices. Like legit, the prices of the items that I normally buy is so much cheaper! It took me a lot of resistance not to buy most of the things that I saw, but I'll just break it down to you on what I got. Participating brands included Sofy, Milo, Dettol, 100 Plus, Coca-cola, Maggi, Soyfresh and more. I swear I tried to control myself, but I think I managed to bring something home almost each store present. At an insane irresistible price, it was pretty hard to decline the offer.

OH look, for each RM20 spent, you get a token to redeem a prize!
Here are what the tokens look like during that day
The highlight of it all was that I got to enjoy my cashless/cardless experience of shopping using only my phone to scan on the items that I want. I am a Favepay user since earlier this year, but with this collaboration with Potboy, they've taken Favepay to a whole new level of convenience. It's honestly slightly scary as you don't see the money going out, but trust me, imagine life without the need to bring anything else other than your phone? Sounds like a pretty easy life to me!

Took on the challenge to shove Pedas Giler Mi Goreng down my throat (failed!)
The fear in my eyes are real
Aftery 2 bites, i gave up. haha
Congrats to the winner who snagged RM1111 cash on the spot
Oh, and since I was there, they were having this spicy Maggi noodle challenge which I can't believe I signed up for. HAHA. I've only joined for the fun of it, but I think I had fun even though I only got myself 2 bites the noodles cause it was just too spicy. Boohoo. The Maggi actually tasted good, just that im not a fan of the burning sensation on my tough. Im a weakling! There were about 40 people who tried to snag the grand prize of RM1111 for just eating a bowl of noodle, so hands down to the winner who managed to be the fastest to finish a bowl of the spicy Maggi noodle.

Red Chef noodles! My fav was this spicy shrimp prawn soap noodle
And just look at all those cartons I brought back home
And this sums up the stuff I purchased during the offline sale. 
With up to 75% off on famous brands, I literally brought back cartons of the things that I like. CAUSE IT WAS SO CHEAP! From planning to just browse through, to filling my whole car boot with goods, I'd say every penny spent was worth it! I have no regrets on my purchases and im actually hoping that they have the same even online to offline setting when im in need of stock. HAHA. But yeah, im looking forward to Potboy Groceries to get my groceries done on an average basis. So if you want to be a part of the online grocery shopping evolution too, be sure to download FAVE and checkout Potboy Groceries.

This Particular range features ingredients such as Willowbark Nerolight Ceramide 123 and EP white giving you healthy skin while reducing dark spots. Now you know what pure beauty offers, Let’s get into details on the products.

SERUM | Illuminating Urban Shield | RM59.90


Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Serum
After cleansing your face and applying toner, the next step would usually be to apply serum if you want to give your skin that extra glow. The Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Serum has a special ingredient, nerolight that helps to decrease dark spots, as it evens the skin tone. That's not all! It also has nutrients that would repair damaged skin and defend it against pollutants. To me, serums are usually enhancers for the skin, but this serum repairs AND enhance the skin condition making it a valuable skincare product!

Some descriptions on the product
Cream like texture, lightweight, and well absorbed by the skin
I gave the serum a pump, and I honestly love how the texture feels. It may look like cream, but as you gently apply it to your face, you would notice that the formulation is well absorbed by the skin after a few seconds. Now, we all know that after applying Serum, the next step should be to lock the serum in by applying moisturizer! But if you want to give your skin an extra boost, scroll down to find out what you can use before applying moisturizer.

ESSENCE |  Illuminating Urban Shield | RM69.90


Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Essence
After applying serum, if you need an extra boost in repairs and protection, you should really consider getting the Illuminating Urban Shield Capsule Essence. This has to be the STAR PRODUCT within the entire range, as it has been designed to have a technology to help activate the capsules within the bottle just before application. Now, I bet whats running in your mind now would be "whats the difference between Essence and Serum? Serum enhances the skin, whereas essence is more like an extra dosage to add some 'kick' to your recovery process. This essence has been designed to reduce dark spots, and not to forget that it also contains special pearlized capsules to give your skin a more luminous look.

Product descriptions
The capsules break when applied
You can either use this to replace your serum OR include this in your skin regime after applying the serum. But if you're not planning to get both, then, I'll clarify to you that the Essence is a must have! So to use, all you need to do is to pump 2 times and gently massage into skin until its fully absorbed. This has a very watery texture once it evenly spread out, and I love it!  Because this contains special capsule in the product, I find that it's very exciting to apply it to my skin. Hehe

MOISTURISERS | Illuminating Urban Shield

Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Water Gel | RM55.90
Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Cream | RM59.90
Now, ironically, Pure Beauty offers 2 different types of moisturizes to suit different people, who have different skin types. The moisturizers that Pure Beauty offers are namely, Illuminating Urban Shield Water Gel and the Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Cream. Having combination skin, I would have to say that my favorite is the Illuminating Urban Shield Water Gel. From the name itself, you might have guessed that it's water based. Believe it or not, that moisturizing feel that it gave me was really satisfying as its lightweight, while keeping my skin hydrated and moisturized.

The texture of the  Illuminating Urban Shield Water Gel
The texture of the Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Cream
Based on a personal preference, I prefer using the Illuminating Urban Shield Water Gel on a daily basis, but for specific moisturizing treatments, I'd definitely go for the illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Cream for an extra boost while im sleeping. It really depends on your preference as both have the key function to moisturize the skin. The water gel is lighter in comparison to the radiance cream, and to me, the cream is like an added skincare benefit to pamper the skin when your skin needs some love and attention.

SUN PROTECTOR |  Illuminating Urban Shield | RM49.90


Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Sun Protector
Their Sun Protector, the Illuminating Urban Shield Sun Protector SPF 50+ PA++++ has been formulated with Nerolight, which has been specially derived from Organic Star Lily to decrease dark spots. Guys, if you haven't been including sun-block in your daily skincare regime, it's about time you put more attention on preventing your skin from being attacked by UV rays. Also, what if I told you that sun-protector is the key to anti-aging?

Descriptions on the product
Looks like sunblock, feels lighter than your usual sunblock
Since I managed to get my hands on the actual product, it came in like those tube containers where you just squeeze out the content just before applying it to your face. Usually not a fan of sunblock, but this is acceptable as it doesn't have that sunblock smell, and it feels very lightweight on the skin. I've tested it out, and im loving how it doesn't leave that patchy white layer on your skin once applied.  Also, it keeps your skin moisturized throughout the day, with SPF50+ PA++++ benefits too!

Did you know? 
SPF relates to how long it takes to get burnt when you're under the sun
PA relates to Protection grade, where the more (+), the higher the protection

Took a few moments to test out the products at home, and i am legit in love!
Got my prevention stash to keep my skin protected.
Now if you're an outdoor city girl like me, and you are looking to reduce dark spots as you even out your skin tone, you should really try out the Illuminating Urban Shield Radiance Range to shield your skin from the harsh everyday pollutants and UV rays. The range is now available at all Watsons stores nationwide, and the range aims to provide the latest technology to enrich your skin's natural glow, protecting you from daily pollution. With this range, I have no worries with dust and dirt that invigorates the skin, and I can feel carefree while being outdoors knowing that the Pure Beauty's Illuminating Protective Skincare Range will effectively protect my skin, decrease dark spots, strengthens the skin barrier and shield the skin from harmful elements.

Reviewing the BH T100 Semi Plug & Run Treadmill


Reviewing the T100 Semi Plug & Run Treadmill
Honestly speaking, I noticed that more Malaysians are looking to have a better fitter lifestyle, physically, and mentally. Being a fitness junkie, I take a lot of effort to at least make some time to exercise at least 1-2 times a week. If you have time to drop by a convenient store to buy junk food, you'd definitely have time to run around the park for about 20-30 minutes. But living in a modern world, I understand that time and the gym fees are one of the factors that you decide not to work out.

Did you know that BH Fitness is the No 1 in Europe since 1909?
I believe the MOST convenient way to work out would be to have your own mini gym at home.... okay, maybe not the entire gym, but possibly one equipment that can keep you busy when you have the time. The main question that usually pops in a persons head when thinking about getting home gym equipment is always the struggle between space and versatility. I notice that dumbells are a favorite equipment at home, but my personal choice would be to get yourself a treadmill! I grew up with a treadmill at home, thus I know how convenient it is to have it at home.

Easy control panels with speed, program, mode and speed buttons
Now, im pretty sure the minute I said treadmill at home, your head would be telling you that it would take up so much space! Well, good news! I recently found a treadmill that is currently on my wishlist, the BH T100 Semi Plug & Run Treadmill. Beistegui Hermanos (BH) is Europe's No 1 brand with 100 years of innovation offering full home and commercial fitness equipment, and one of it would be the this Semi Plug & Run hassle-free installation design.

WHAT ARE THE FEATURES? 

The overall look of the BH T100 Semi Plug & Run Treadmill
Easy to fold and save space
And if you ever need to use it again, just push this lever and you'll be ready to run!
The BH T100 Semi Plug & Run Treadmill has a safety system design that makes running more relaxing and safer to suit your needs at home. Designed with a special Arc-shape stand post, the T100 owns the widest standposts, making the treadmill structure firmer and safer. It also has a round rectangular base of steel, designed to distribute pressure to enhance safety. One of my favorite features of it would be that it can be easily folded when you need the space at home. With its SDS System II, the treadmill descends at a slow speed by just pressing the foot pedal.

Loving the anti-slip side footrest
Manual inclination controller. Giving you up to 3 different levels to choose from.
How do you like the MP3 dual stereo speakers? Listen to music while you run!
Moreover, unlike most treadmills, the BH T100 Semi Plug & Run Treadmill has a special feature of inclining the treadmill manually. Offering up to 3 inclination levels, you'll definitely have an interesting workout while at home. Im the kind of gym-junkie who likes to listen to music, so what if I told you that the T100 offers you an MP3 Dual stereo speakers? YEP! Means the treadmill has build in speakers to motivate you to run even further. LOVE THIS FEATURE cause I can play my Spotify playlist while running. With quick-key controls and fingertip controls, it almost feels like you have one of the most high-tech treadmills that can be placed at home without worrying about the space consumption!

HOW DO I USE IT? 


Since the treadmill has an anti-slip side footrest, I have no worry doing my intense run training sessions at home. With BH's unique cushion shock absorbing system, I also find that the BH T100 Semi Plug & Run Treadmill is really comfortable to do different types of workouts (Refer to the video for the treadmill workouts that I usually like to do. Trust me when I say that treadmills are one of my must-have fitness equipment at home, cause you can do so many types of workouts on a treadmill. Designed to be a Semi Plug & Run Treadmill, it guarantees you only 90 seconds to set it up, and you're ready to run!

VERDICT

As a verdict, I'd have to say that this is currently my favorite home treadmills that saves time and space which requires minimal effort to set it up, to give you an enjoyable workout each time!
