[REVIEW] Puras Essential Oils | Dragon's Blood Antioxidant Skincare

Dragon's Blood Antioxidant Skincare by Puras

Hey friends! Today I'll be sharing a little obsession that I've been having lately. Being a mother and all, I tend to lean towards drug-free alternatives, especially when it comes to skincare and mental health. When I found that Puras provided just that, I was instantly hooked on what they have to offer. I had the privilege to meet the founder herself at their store in Bangsar Village, and I was uplift by her story of how Puras started. Started off with the need for a natural remedy for self-treatment, and then it grew into a non-carcinogenic and non-toxic approach in formulating natural healing products. If you have a stressful lifestyle and you would want to skip the pills, be sure to check out what Puras Essential Oils has to offer.

Just some of the different kinds of essential oils offered

Available in different sizes as well

Before you think that Puras offers only Essential Oils, let me clarify to you that it does not mean that they only offer Essential Oils, but also formulations of roll-ons, body care, and skincare as well that revolves around the natural healing benefits of essential oils. I've been an advocate on essential oils myself, and I found that Puras offers more than what I need when it comes to the variety of products that they have. Trust me, you can just walk into the store and tell them if youre emotionally stress, or if your house is infested with ants, they have the thing just for you to make your troubles go away. 

Presenting to you the Dragon's Blood Skincare

Essential oils have been known to be the natural treatment during the traditional days and have been preferred by many when it comes to maintaining good health. But today, essential oils have grown into an innovative industry especially during this time of era, and they can be implemented in your household as an anti-bacterial spray to catering to your skincare needs. Talking about skincare, today im sharing with you an exciting discovery I found about Dragon's Blood. Other than the name being very ancient, this Dragon Blood is actually a miracle healing tree found in Socotra, Yemen, and has been known to be the queen of the forest for its endless healing benefits.

Its sap is harvested from the Croton Lechleri tree and contains a broad range of naturally-occurring compounds, many of which have been wellstudied. The sap is rich in protective antioxidantsphenols with 2.8mil ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value. Due to these compounds, the Dragon's blood sap helps to protect the cells of the skin and prevents sun damage. The sap also contains a group of compounds called proanthocyanidins,the lattice-like main protein that makes up much of our tissues. Additionally, Dragon's blood contains taspine, a known skin cells healing agent. This is why Dragon's blood is so widely used on problematic skin conditions of all kinds with great success. Puras actually offers Dragons Blood Skincare and I just had to find out myself on how good it is.

DRAGON BLOOD ANTI-AGING ANTIOXIDANT SKINCARE

Brought this whole set home, and i couldn't wait to review it.

The range of skincare that Puras offers for this would be a face wash, an antioxidant moisturizer, an antioxidant cream, and an antioxidant sleeping mask. Starting off with their face wash, the Dragon's Blood Anti-Aging Face Wash claims that it cleanses impurities while enveloping the skin with silky smoothness. I actually gave this a go, and I am beyond impressed with the after cleansing effect! It may sound a little too good to be true but after washing my face with this cleanser, my skin seemed to be a tone lighter at the very least. The logic behind this? I believe it removed my dead skin pretty well without drying out the skin, but instead, it hydrates the skin, leaving it to be cleansed and freshly hydrated. Period, the best cleanser I've reviewed this year!

Dragon's Blood Face Wash

Gel-like texture and doesn't foam up like usual cleansers do. 

The experience of after cleansing would be that i do sense that my skin looks brighter after cleansing

To complement the cleanser, it's recommended that you apply the Dragon's Blood Moisturizer which is high in antioxidants and anti-aging properties. Infused with Chamomile and Geranium Essential Oil, not only that it smells relaxing, but it also improves skin elasticity, reduces wrinkles, while leaving your skin feeling soft and supple as well. The texture is smooth of the cream is lightweight and smooth, and upon application, it glides smoothly onto the skin without leaving any sticky residue. Just the kind of moisturizer I need. 

Dragon's Blood Moisturizer

Dragon's Blood Cream

Both offer moisturizing results, but the cream has a thicker consistency compared to the moisturizer

Alternatively, if you have dry skin, or in need of some extra hydration, I would recommend you to get the Dragon's Blood Cream instead. The cream has a thicker moisturizing texture in comparison to the Dragon's Blood Moisturizer, and other than providing hydration, this is a great cream to reduce pigmentation and to also diminish signs of aging. Since i have oily-combination skin, i usually apply this when im most of the time indoors, as it does a pretty good job in keeping my skin well hydrated throughout the day. 

Dragon's Blood Sleeping Mask

Has a gooey like texture, to be left on the skin overnight for maximum results

It may feel a little sticky upon application, but it slowly dries up without drying the skin. 

To give your skin more love when the body rest, the Dragon's Blood Sleeping Mask is just the sleeping mask you need. To be applied once a week, it provides intense antioxidants and anti-aging benefits while you sleep throughout the night. Formulated with Dragon's Blood, Sea Cucumber and Apple Stem Cells, these ingredients would help the skin rejuvenate and recover, in result giving the skin a well-rested appearance the next morning. I tried this out, and my oh my, I woke up feeling like my skin just got out of a facial treatment. If your skin is having a bad day, you have my word when i say that this sleeping mask would do just the trick! 

Puras Store in Bangsar Village

Testers are available in stores for you to try before purchasing

As a verdict, I would have to say that despite the hefty price tag, I emphasize that every penny spent is worth it! The formulations to create these products are the real deal without going around the bush, and most importantly, give actual results. I love the idea that with this skincare, it completes my skin needs in hydrating, moisturizing, repairing, age-defying and brightening, making it the one complete skincare that i need. Being a mother now, i tend to lean toward natural choices of skincare that does not use preservatives and chemicals, and the Dragon's Blood Skincare pretty much fits the bill. If you want to get a feel of their products, you can always head on over to their store in Bangsar Village to have first-hand experience, and the rest is history. Trust me, you would not regret. Feel free to also check out other products that Puras has to offer by heading over to their social sites below.

With over 70 products now available on Shopee, Melvita has a wide variety of organic beauty products ranging from face care to body and hair care as well as personal hygiene.

Melvita was founded in 1983 in the heart of Ardeche, France. The goal was to bring natural and organic ingredients, together with the essences of life, to beauty consumers. The one same formula of organic plant oils, floral water and honey continues till today, with the brand offering over 180 products to its strong following of users. 

 

By expanding its presence on Shopee, Melvita hopes to reach the millions of customers on the e-commerce platform as it continues to create awareness of the benefits of organic products that are gentle not only to the skin, but also the environment. Apart from Melvita’s webstore, opening a store on Shopee offers an additional touchpoint for the beauty brand’s online-first customers, giving them more options of getting the products without having to leave home especially in the current situation that the country is in. 

 

Melvita is best known for its Organic Argan Oil, Rose Extraordinary Water and Organic Rose Floral Water that encourage the balance of oil and water on the skin to cater to the different skin concerns.

[REVIEW] Eat Sushi | Affordable Fresh Sushi In Kota Damansara


Hi everyone! Im back with another food review and this time, I'll be sharing with you about Eat Sushi that is located at Sunway Giza Kota Damansara. Been craving for sushi for a while now, then I stumbled upon Eat Sushi and I was so happy to find that their prices are affordable and the place looks really cozy too! I did some research, and if youre wondering where Eat Sushi came from, they actually started in Australia in 2009. With 6 branches in Australia, the outlet located at Sunway Giza Mall would be their first outlet in Malaysia! 



Eat Sushi offers a variety of different traditional Japanese dishes and has incorporated elements of Australia and Japan flavors into their recipe to create a unique gastronomic experience to each bite you take. Being a regular sushi eater and for someone who takes sushi seriously, i found eat sushi to be different than any sushi i've eaten. They may not be entirely Japanese, but the twist of Australian taste buds does ass a twist to your regular sushi. Yums! 

Unagi Rainbow Maki

Tempura Sushi

Egg Rainbow Maki

For starters, if youre planning your first visit to Eat Sushi, here are some signature dishes that you can't miss out on when you visit. Their top 3 sushi rolls would be the Unagi Rainbow Maki that contains cream cheese that adds a twist to the regular traditional unagi maki, the Grill Salmon Rainbow Maki that contains a special sauce to make it taste a little sour, and the Tempura Sushi that offers entirely fried maki. Alternatively, if these don't tempt your tastebuds yet, you may also consider ordering the Avocado Rainbow Maki, Grill Hotate Rainbow that contains grilled scallop, or the Egg Rainbow Maki that offers an egg layering that adds flavor to the maki. 




Other than their signature dishes, there are also other sushi plates that you can select from the sushi belt that ranges between RM2.80, RM3.80, and RM4.80. I found that the sushi that they offer were really affordable without substituting the quality. The options had some pretty good selections too, offering something for anyone who visits. I exceptionally loved the Lobster salad sushi and their classic sashimi the most. But of course, that doesn't mean thats all that they have to offer. 



As a verdict, I must say that Eat Sushi uses fresh and high-quality ingredients to serve to their customers. The location offers an event space as well for group gatherings, making it a great location to dine in and enjoy sushi with friends, colleagues, and family members as well. I would have to say that Eat Sushi offers a really good selection and you have to try it out at least once to know how unique their sushi's are. To my muslim friends, they are Muslim friendly and not offering any alcohol in-store, so you can dine with ease as you enjoy a good plate of sushi. Passing by Kota Damansara anytime soon? Be sure to drop by Eat Sushi today!
