[REVIEW] NUTOX Renewing Treatment | Skincare Empties Malaysia

Here's my November 2017 Nutox Skincare Empties
Hi guys, it has been a while since I've last done a skincare review and this time I'm featuring the newly launched NUTOX Renewing Treatment. I have been using this for over a month now and the results are amazing (i can bet on it!). If you're here to find out on a NUTOX Renewing Treatment Review to find out about the results, then you have come to the right place. Scroll away to find out more!

The NUTOX Renewing Treatment Range
The NUTOX Renewing Treatment was recently launched somewhere in mid-2017, and I finally gave it a chance to test out on how effective it is. The range comes in 3 products namely, the Renewing Treatment Lotion, The Renewing Treatment Essence and the Renewing Treatment Cream each having its own purpose to basically renew your skin. The best part of all is that its perfect for all skin types! Which pretty much means you can never go wrong with these babies. So here's the breakdown.

Renewing Treatment Lotion

NUTOX Renewing Treatment Lotion
The Renewing Treatment Lotion basically comes in a bottle of 150ml with the purpose to Renew your Skin. The lotion has been developed with LumiNes to buff and lift away dead cells and impurities from the face, for a glowy complexion. It claims to give a new life to your skin by renewing your skin almost effortlessly. This retails at RM59.90

I like to apply my toner on a cotton pad cause im messy when its hands on (true story)
Pour an adequate amount of lotion onto a cotton pad or to the palm of your hands, then gently pat your skin until the lotion is roughly absorbed. To be applied twice daily after cleansing. I must admit that I love its lightweight formulation that's unlike your average toner. Surprisingly this toner was moisturizing and it really refreshes the skin each time after application. Great to closed up those stubborn pores!

Renewing Treatment Essence

NUTOX Renewing Treatment Essence
After the toner, next would be the Nutox Renewing Treatment Essence. The Essence comes in a cute 30ml pump glass bottle (so fancy) for easy control of essence. It functions to Restore the skin by deeply moisturizing the skin while repairing the texture of the skin. It also claims to make your skin look more beautiful and radiates a youthful glow. This retails at RM79.90 per bottle.

I like to apply it in a 5 point method
The essence is to be used after applying the Renewing Treatment Lotion. I usually would use a peasized amount of essence and massage an adequate amount onto my face until the essence penetrates completely. Its also best to apply this once a day and once at night on a cleansed face and neck before moisturizing. Despite it being an essence, I must say that I love how well the formulation is absorbed by my skin without leaving any sticky residue. Shocked and surprised, but I have to say after about 2 weeks of using this, my skin looks like its glowing.

Renewing Treatment Cream

NUTOX Renewing Treatment Cream
The last step after essence would be to apply the Renewing Treatment Cream. The cream is to radiate the skin so that you can maintain the glow that you already have. The NUTOX Renewing Treatment Cream is formulated with LumiNes to smoothen the skin while providing nourishment deep within the skin to keep your skin radiant for a long time. It comes in a glass jar with 30ml of radiating cream. This retails at RM49.90.

To be applied evenly onto face.
This being the last step of my skincare routine, I personally like to use a spatula so that I don't spoil the product by contaminating the content. Apply a generous amount onto face and massage gently. I like to apply this to my face and neck and occasionally, when my skin is extremely dry, I like to also use this as a night mask for extra moisturizing. To be honest, you might think I'm overreacting, but really, this has to be one of the best cream I've tried!

After 1 month

Before and after results after 1 month
Here's a comparison of a before and after shot of the results. I have been out in the sun a lot as my job requires me to constantly visit an island where the sun rays are way stronger than the ones in the city, thus I had hopes that with the Nutox Renewing Treatment range would help me get my 'glow' back. And from the looks of it, I must say that I'm satisfied with the results. Like for reals, can you even see the difference? This photo was not at all edited, and I see that my acne was almost gone, pores seem to be minimised, and most importantly, it evens out my skin tone!


Here's proof of my empties!
As a verdict, after using the whole skincare set for about a month on my combination skin type, I would have to say it works like a charm on me. If you're looking to find a way to renewing your skin from all the madness your skin had to go through, I would definitely suggest you to try the Nutox Renewing Treatment range to renew your skin with a simple skincare regime. What can I say? I love the whole set! Minimal skincare with easy steps, its 100% idiot proof even for skincare beginners.

Dining in Kuala Lumpur | Presenting Wow KL!
Introducing Kuala Lumpur's Newest Experience that would be a must place a visit for tourist from all around the world, including Malaysians! Here at MATIC, the Malaysian Tourism Centre is one of the convenient tourist centers if you're in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Here lies the famous bistro is formerly known as Saloma Bistro, but now has been upgraded to be the Arts Restaurant and Sports Bistro as it has been taken over by a new management, WOW KL! Wowing tourist as a must-visit destination, if you're looking for a dinner or an informative place to chill in Kuala Lumpur with a cultural show, scroll away to find out.

What is WOW KL!? 
You might be wondering what WOW KL is all about? WOW is a paraphrase of Wau, which in the Malay language, is a euphemism for a kite synonymous with Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur is recognized by the travel-orientated media as one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities in the world, and now has an icon in WOW KL! that apparently has the most-visited destination in Malaysia that is loved by many travelers from all around the world. Thus, all you need to do is to prepare yourself to be entertained by what WOW KL! has to offer.

Sports Bistro Weekend gigs
An infamous Saloma bistro lies in within the gates of MATIC, is now known as the Sports Bistro where you can chill out and relax as you enjoy watching sports all-day in an open breezy lounge complete with a long bar, giant screen and live music. I was told that they have live music being played every night, performed by different bands daily making it the perfect location for those who wish to enjoy the night with some great music.

The Arts Restaurant Hall
The highlight of it all I would say has to be the Arts Restaurant. What makes this Arts Restaurant special would its because they provide you dinner with a cultural show. If you're a frequent traveler, you would know that its a must to visit a cultural show no matter what country you're in, and in Kuala Lumpur, WOW KL! has got that covered for you. At the restaurant, they'll serve you a wide array of variety featuring a buffet spread of Malaysian & International Cuisines.

Cold Cuts as appetisers
Fresh 'Roti Canai' dough
One of the few salads served 
Cakoi being made right before your eyes, a.k.a Chinese Fried Churros
From appetizers to desserts, you will definitely be filled with delicious food and whats even better would be that you'll be able to see some of your food being prepared right before your eyes. For appetizers, they serve a wide selection of salad, cold meat and fermented fruits (also known as 'jeruk' in Malaysia). You'll also get the chance to enjoy a juicy roll of Kebab, meat being slowly roasted over a rotating spit. They also have 'cakoi', some kind of Chinese fried churros, that will be fried fresh for you to enjoy. Hehe.

Roasted Lamb, my favourite!
Chinese Pau 
Chicken Stew
Kebab Rolls
Going towards the mains, you can start off with mushroom soup as a starter then move towards having spaghetti, roasted lamb, fried chicken, beef rendang just to name a few. But if you're reading this to find out what is worth it, I would have to say that the lamb steals the show! Also, not to forget that their array of local dishes as well to 'wow' your taste buds. Hehe. Having dinner at Arts Restaurant really gives you the opportunity to get a preview of the flavors of Malaysia.

Freshlly cut dragon fruit
One of the many few delicious cakes being served at the Arts Restaurant
And those with sweet tooths, you can look forward to their dessert section where they'll have at least 4 types of fruits being served, local pastries and desserts, cakes, ice cream and even the classical Malaysian dessert, 'ais kacang ABC', an ice shaved dessert served with corn, jelly, sweet syrup and more. I really loved their selection of small pastries that I myself find it hard to find in Malaysia.  A great way for you to explore the sweet delicacies that Malaysia has to offer.

Ethnic Cultural performances.
Malay cultural wedding traditions being presented on stage
Some friendly volunteers who were willing to make their holiday a memorable one!!
Once we finished dinner at the Arts Restaurant, you can relax, eat and enjoy the culture show, which starts at 8.30pm, filled with multi-ethnic dances, sketches and witness how a traditional Malay wedding is done. They may also request for volunteers at times, so be sure to join in the fun while you're there. Here you will be entertained by the different cultural performances that Malaysia has to offer and not to forget that you'll also be given a chance to take pictures with the performers as well. A chance not to be missed!

Located just right opposite Malaysia's Tourism Centre (MATIC)
Alternatively, you can consider visiting MATIC, to chill out and pop into the Sports Bistro, located just outside the Arts Restaurant. The Sports Bistro is an all-day open lounge that has a long bar, giant screen and if you're there at night, you'd be lucky enough to enjoy live music by different bands each night. If you think the night is still young after the cultural show ends, you can always grab some drinks and make friends as you enjoy the Kuala Lumpur Breeze before heading back. Don't forget to plan your day ahead and enjoy your time in Kuala Lumpur. For more information on WOW KL!, I've listed their social media accounts below. Ttfn xx

[FOOD] Sukiya's Volcano Chili Fair | Exclusive Ramen Recipe

Sukiya Presents, Tokyo Ramen bowls in Malaysia
To all foodies, I have an exciting announcement to make. If you love adventure (and Japanese food), Sukiya has something really exciting coming on the 27th of November 2017, the Volcano Chili Fair! Sukiya is Japan's No.1 Gyudon chain restaurant offering delicious Gyudon at affordable prices, and now has 4 restaurants in Malaysia! What makes Sukiya awesome is the fact that Sukiya follows Halal regulations so that Muslim guest can dine without a worry. YAY! Now, let's get into detail with Sukiya's Volcano Chili Fair!!

Sukiya Tokyo Bowls & Noodles now available in Malaysia
The interior layout at Sukiya in Sunway Velocity Mall
This promotion is exclusively available in Malaysia, and what makes this promotion exciting is because it combines Japanese and Spices which creates a rare infusion! The chef has decided to get messy in the kitchen by creating a sauce that is super spicy to suit local Malaysian taste buds. I was also told that this has been prepared to be the most spiciest Gyudon that you'll ever taste, so if you love your food to be spicy, this is the time to head on over to Sukiya to enjoy a bowl of spicy gyudon or ramen. The 3 main dishes featuring in the Volcano Chili Fair would namely be, Volcano Chili Gyudon, Volcano Chili Ramen, Volcano Chili Katsu Ramen.

Volcano Chili Gyudon

Volcano Chili Gyudon, RM10.40 (S), RM12.40 (M), RM14.40 (L)
Thie Volcano Chili Gyudon features the classic Japanese rice, topped with beef, cooked in their signature volcano chili sauce. The special 'paste' in this dish surprisingly is tasty, and it does add a zest to the dish compared to the other delicious gyudon dishes. I wouldn't say that it's too spicy as its almost similar to our nasi lemak 'sambal'. Thus, if you're slightly less daring, this would be a great start to begin your quest at Sukiya's Volcano Chili Fair.  It comes in 3 sizes, thus you can start small if you're not daring enough, but if you have a big appetite for spicy food, just skip the norms and go BIG!

Volcano Chili Ramen

Volcano Chili Ramen, RM12.40

Just look at those red chili slices
Next would be the Volcano Chili Ramen. The Volcano Chili Ramen is served with sliced chicken on the side, with sprouts on the side which I must say gave an interesting texture in every bite. If you're not used to spicy food, you have been warned that this might just burn your tongue with spicy goodness. I'm not a fan of spicy food, but this dish kinda changed my perception towards spicy dishes. So if you're tempted to go spicy for the love of ramen, this is definitely worth to try.

Volcano Chili Katsu Ramen

Volcano Chili Katsu Ramen, RM16.40 
Just look at the juicy katsu chicken!
And last but not least would be the Volcano Chili Katsu Ramen. This dish is similar to the Volcano Chili Ramen, just that it features katsu chicken in its dish. Katsu is more like Japanese fried chicken which has been cut into slices to be enjoyed with this dish. I personally think that this is one of my favorite dish among the 3 dishes because the katsu chicken compliments the Volcano Chili soup really well. (Also because when im enjoying the spicy dish, the Chicken katsu kindda helps tone down the spiciness on my tongue). Hehe.

Enjoying my Volcano Chicken Katsu Ramen at Sukiya
Have you figured out which is your favorite? 
As a conclusion, if you love Japanese food, and spicy food, this would definitely be a must try! I was told that the campaign would start from 27th November 2017 and will be running for 2 months. So yes, its for a limited period only. After getting a bowl of volcano chili dishes to myself, I would definitely come back for more next week! Hehe.  I love the idea that Sukiya is preparing a dish that would be loved by Malaysian with a twist of authentic Japanese food being featured. So what are you waiting for? Start planning a visit to your nearest Sukiya outlet before the promotion ends! xx
