[REVIEW] UltraMoist Pro-Collagen Hygroscopic Moisturizer | All-in-one Moisturizer Before After Results

Reviewing the BEST moisturiser ever!
Hey guys, if you have been following my social platforms (via FB and Instagram), you might have realized that I have been raving on the UltraMoist Pro-Collagen Hygroscopic Moisturiser by Orique ever since I got my hands on it! And since I got you guys wondering about what makes this moisturizer amazing, in this blog post I'll be sharing with you about the benefits and results of the UltraMoist Pro-Collagen Hygroscopic Moisturiser.

Everyday problem

The solution to your problem lies in this box
So here's the deal. Being in my mid-twenties, 26, to be specific, I realized that my face is getting less bouncy, dries faster, looks dull and basically, it just looks tired all the time. And gad, if I go to a skin specialist, they would give me a list of products that I would need to improve my skin condition. Not only that I need to spend more, but it also means that I would need more time with my skin regime. MADNESS! I'll be honest that I like my skincare routine to be minimal, and this is why I was so happy when I found out about the UltraMoist Pro-Collagen Hygroscopic Moisturiser.

Presenting UltraMoist

The box and the product
The UltraMoist Pro-Collagen Hygroscopic Moisturiser is a moisturizer that lifts, firms, rejuvenates, whitens and moisturizes the skin, and with that being in 1 product, I am sold on the whole idea of it!  Instead of following the compulsory 5 step of cleansing > toner > serum > cream > moisturiser, i can cut the step to 3 steps by cleansing > toner > moisturise (all in one). And being a sucker for all things that save time with twice the benefit, I appreciate products such as the UltraMoist as it provides tons of benefits in just one product.


Descriptions on the packaging
Now proceeding to the review, from the first impression of the box, I'd have to say that it looks very clinical which I have no doubt that it's definitely a safe product to use on the skin. And if you get a closer look of the product, it claims to be a natural product series, using 100% natural active ingredients which features quick absorption, dermatologically tested, non-sticky formula, paraben free, hormone free, alcohol-free, fragrance-free and is pH Balanced. Like, period, WOW. But to be honest, the non-sticky formula caught my attention, cause if it feels good on the skin, I don't mind applying it all day.

Comes in a pump bottle that gurantees hygiene.
And when you take the product out of the box, you will find the product in a pump bottle which is a little something different for a moisturizer. I mean, you gotta agree with me when I say that moisturizers are usually in a tub casing, but with this, I believe that the product is 'cleaner', in a sense that it's not exposed to unnecessary germs. With this baby, you can say bye bye to making sure that your spatula is clean before scooping the moisturizer out of a tub case moisturizer. Like, finally, im happy that there's a moisturizer that comes in a pump bottle to keep the product clean, and less contaminated.

Two pumps is all you need
The texture of the waterbased moisturiser
I usually use about 2 pumps each time to apply it on my neck and my face, and I realized that the moisturizer smells kinda sweet despite being fragrance-free. Im assuming its because its the honey bee venom ingredient that makes it smell amazing! In terms of texture, it has this waterbased texture that I love, and as you spread it over your face and neck, you would realize that it has this soothing effect, that your skin would quickly consume without any doubt. My theory is that when skincare is well absorbed by the skin, it means that your skin approves. hehe.

Results after 3 weeks

Before using UltraMoist (can you see red spots on my skin?)
After 3 weeks of constant usage
So, I've been using it for about 4 weeks now, and I am surprised with the results. I've been constantly using this after cleansing and toner, twice a day, and I realized that other than it soothes my acne problems, it also makes my skin feels hydrated, bouncy and firm. I also noticed that it kinda gave my skin a glowy finish by making my skin look brighter. Not to forget that I can tell that my skin looks so much happier thanks to the multi-action hydration and moisturizer formula that regenerates and penetrates into skin layer to repair, and improve the skin's condition.


Get better skin with UltraMoist Pro-Collagen Hygroscopic Moisturizer
As a verdict, I would have to say that it really helps improve my skin condition by providing natural collagen that encourages elastin formation for smoother younger looking skin. Despite it being my first time hearing about UltraMoist, I can guarantee that this moisturizer would firm, lift, brighten and nourish your skin without leaving your skin feeling uncomfortable. The results say it all, and I can't emphasize to you on how much I truly love it. I would really recommend this to you if you're looking for an ultimate moisturizer that gives you all the nutrients that your skin needs by getting yourself a bottle of the UltraMoist Pro-Collagen Hygroscopic Moisturiser. You're definitely missing out if you havent tried this yet.

[TRAVEL] Exploring Ripley's Believe It Or Not | Resort World Genting

Made it to the Ripleys Believe It or Not Odditorium
I swear you guys when I heard that Ripley's Believe It Or Not is opening at Resort World Genting, I can't help but mark my calendar to make sure that I make time to visit. I remember growing up watching their TV shows about insane unbelievable facts and also my visits when I travel overseas. And to finally know that they are available in Malaysia, I secretly screamed like a little girl. Being a fan of  Ripley's Believe It Or Not is an opportunity not to be missed. Since its still very new, and I cant find much sneak peaks on what  Ripley's Believe It Or Not in Genting has to offer, I decided to do a little sneak peek for you guys to get a preview before entering.

What is  Ripley's Believe It Or Not?

Time to explore the Believe It or Not in Genting Highlands
A little introduction if you haven't heard about  Ripley's Believe It Or Not (how can you even not hear about  Ripley's Believe It Or Not?!), as of 2018, the collection is a compilation of nearly 100 years of collection, collected by Robert Ripley and his corporate heirs. With over 250,000 pieces gathered and assembled by Ripley himself on his many travels around the world, the staff today continues to add new pieces to the collection almost daily to maintain his legacy. And trust me, the artifacts and information that he left are mindblowing.

Sneak Peek

The first thing you see when you enter (minus the upsidedown pram)
The one-armed paper hanger
Now, here's a little sneak peak of what  Ripley's Believe It Or Not in Resort World Genting has to offer. Recently opened earlier this year in 2018, you will find a variety of different artifacts in different sections. The collection has been split into science & Biology, History & Culture, Art & Design, and of course a collection of his personal journals. I cannot imagine how much effort it took for him to collect all this data, but im glad that you can at least see a portion of it at the  Ripley's Believe It Or Not in Resort World Genting. YAY!

Trash shadow art, what do you really see?
Art made out of purely toast
The Girner in lifesize
Here are some examples of the things I found, like this trash shadow art. Like, to me it looks like a pile of trash, but when you look closer at this pile of random plastic toys, do you see a cat or two mice? I see both! They also exhibit toast art as a whole masterpiece by a French dude, and I ain't kidding that there's this statue of The Girner, where he has an ability to swallow his nose. I know its pretty random facts, but that what you have to go through when you're there.

Explore all the things you would see in space
More exploration areas
Presenting the amazon Collection
The Tibetan Human Bone Flute
Believe it or not, this is an actual mummified hand
Next would be a section filled with Science and Biology where you'll find artifacts which managed to travel from space back to earth. Walk deeper and find yourself in the Amazon Collection where you'll find all things history and culture. Here I found pretty cool stuff like a Tibetan Human Bone Flute and a mummified hand from Egypt! Now that is savage. Who would even dare to take anything that its dead? A part of me hopes that it's not real, but if it is real, I hope it's not cursed. haha.

Trick your eyes or your brain?
More galleries to explore
Is that donald trump on a cockroach?
Chill back and relax as you read little descriptions written everywhere around the hall
Met Avelino, the Cuban Eye Popper
Get all the luck you can get in the luckies room in the world
Here's Haziq posing with a horse made entirely out of licence plates
Don't worry,  Ripley's Believe It Or Not didn't forget fun facts for the kids. The Art & Design section would be a favorite for the kids as its nothing too complex to understand. Hehe. Here you can enjoy the Ripleys Theater where you can take a moment to see crazy stunts that are unbelievable or play around with illusional tricks to see which part of your brain is working more? With so many things to see, you'll find your way to the luckiest room in the world. I felt like all my luck was honestly from that room where you'll find all things lucky, like the Buddha, horseshoes, and penny being turned into art.

And thats just 10% of what they have to offer, you gotta be here to withness it all in person.
The price list to visit the attractions
And there you have it! I wish I could show you more, but I would be spoiling all the fun for you if I do. Hehe. So, what are you waiting for? If you are clueless on what to do with the family or looking to spice up your boring weekend, just take a trip to Resort World Genting to give yourself a break from the serious weekdays you've been having. Also, it's not too shabby to level up on your knowledge on getting to know more things that your colleagues right? Hehe. Sara xx

[BEAUTY] 3INA in Resort World Genting

Made my way to 3INA in Resort World Genting
Can you believe it, it's already March when it literally felt as if we were just celebrating the New Years? There are always new things to explore to welcome the New Years, and this time I finally got the time to discover 3INA while I was at Resort World Genting last month. I have been hearing so much hype about 3INA from my blogger pals, and finally being able to get my hands on the products, here are basically my thoughts on it. Scroll to find out more!

Here's what the shop looks like
A little introduction on 3INA, you might wonder how do you pronounce 3INA? The first time I heard about it, I was thinking that it could be 'Trina', Three-NA, but I was wrong. It's actually pronounced as Mee-Nah. 3INA portrays itself as a brand that is playful, built on confident aesthetics, and with a commitment to deliver premium quality at an affordable price. And being present at the store, literally, their prices are jawdropping reasonable for the quality that they offer.

Just look at all those shades available
They even have nailpolish too!
And yep, if you think your makeup drawer has all the shades, well think again
Other than having a HUGE variety of colors, products, and cosmetics, I am impressed that some shades that they offer are the shades that I've never seen before in my life! The colors they offer can be strong, subtle, eye-catching and it creates positive movements of exclusiveness of an individual. Like if you check out the images I took while I was there, I would have to say that the range is pretty impressive. Even if it's your first time walking into their store/kiosk, you will definitely find something to take back home. You have been warned!

Loving the fact that theres mirrors here, everywhere!
Here's the look a makeup artist gave me. Sortta of a cool tone kindda look
I even managed to get myself a makeover while I was there. Their in-house makeup artist was nice enough to give me a whole new look, and trust me, the look that they created was something I thought I would never go for. But still, it was pretty fun to explore potential possibilities of looks that I can start experimenting with, instead of staying in my safe shades. From a flirty look, it only took her 10 minutes to give me a whole new look with cool tones. What do you guys think?

Whats a costmetic store visit without swatches. Loving the strong pigmentations!
Heres what their essential lipstick looks like
Lip pencil with applicator anyonw?
They even have pigmented lipgloss too!
What I noticed about 3INA is that they do not go for one-size-fits-all, but instead go for something that is more detailed to suit your specific beauty needs. Now, this is what I call the real variety of beauty. The brand changes the perspective of how we look at beauty, breaking commercial tradition, by celebrating individuality, diversity, and self-expression with bolder colors (if you seek for something unique and different). I was shocked to find Electric blue eyeliners and mascara being available in stores. That's definitely a whole new level of beauty to play around with.

In case you forget to bring your mask during your holidays, fret not as you can get them from 3INA
Makeup brushes are available too
Just half the shades that are available in store
It doesn't matter if you seek for a simple daily range of makeup, or if you're up to be more expressive in beauty, 3INA guarantees to have something for you! The highlight of it all would be that 3INA products are entirely guilt-free! Ingredients are ethically sourced, vegan wherever possible, cruelty and paraben free wrapped in recyclable materials. Less guilt, more options! What is there to complain about 3INA? I just visited the store once, and managed to bring some products back home to play around with! Would you like to see what I got? Hehe.

Time to create a look with 3INA
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my humble blog, and don't be afraid to hit me up if you would like to see more on 3INA in reviews, makeup tutorials, and even my must-haves! I haven't gotten the time to try out my purchases yet, but I really can't wait to try it out! Hehe. For more information on 3INA, you can check out their official links below. If you've tired 3INA and loved it too, do share me your favorites in the comment below. Would love to know about your 3INA must-haves too. hehe. That's all for now.

TTYL, Sara xx

[TRAVEL] Selfie your way to the Alive Museum at the Sky Avenue at Resort World Genting

Time to explore the Alive Museum!
Love taking photos? Well, you're in luck as the Alive Museum is now available at level 4 Sky Avenue in Genting Highlands. If you love art and taking tons of photos, you would definitely love the Alive Museum. By visiting the Alive Museum, you'll get to see art come to life, and also be a part of the art that has been exclusively painted by artists from South Korea. WOW! Visiting Genting is always a fun experience, and this time I'll be sharing about what you'll find during your visit at the Alive Museum.

Have you ever held a koi this big before?
You might be wondering what to expect when you're walking through the Alive Museum right? Well, you're in luck cause I'll be sharing with you the photos that I managed to take while I was there. I would have to say that you can spend roughly an hour taking photos in this Museum, so be sure to get your batteries ready for an exciting time to take good photos to trick your friends and family! As much as I would love to include the entire album, im gonna only feature my favorite places in this blog post, starting off with this picture with the koi fish! hehe.

This might be a failed attempt. (knees too far) 
But at least I passed riding a pegasus.
Walking through the maze, you'll be amazed at all the places that you can start exploring to take pictures. Roughly I would say that you would spend a good 1 hour in the Alive Museum as you make all these artworks come to life. I was actually really fascinated when I got a chance to be swept off Superman's arms and also got a chance to ride a pegasus! If only I was wearing something more magical, this photo opt would be perfect! So if you're planning to visit for some 3D live photo shoots, be sure to be prepared to wear something comfy.

Have you ever been stuck in a bottle?
Or maybe stand on the cliff with your best friend?
Why not go skiing with polar bears
You can also impose to be as if you're deserted on a deserted island, or stand on the edge with your best friend as you try to save the penguins. Hehe. I personally like the winter-themed area more its filled with cute adorable winter animals like polar bear's and penguins to keep you in company. I managed to take a really cute shot with a polar bear going ice skiing with me. And since I wore a sweater, I think my outfit was about right to get in theme with the photos taken. hehe.

Haziq saying hi from outer space
Trying to figure out which species to abduct next 
So whats the plan Captain Haziq?
I guess which sh*t happens, it happens
And as you walk deeper into the maze, you'll somehow find yourself exploring the outer space. This has to be one of my favorite places within the Alive Museum. The photo opts here are pretty huge, and from the photos, I've taken, I'd say that it looks legit enough that it looks like its taken as if you're in outer space. Snap a photo with an alien or get into a spacecraft with your space team and take tons of memories to share with your friends and family.

Here we have wonder woman, superman and ironman bowing down to the new hero
Being an ambassador for Malaysia in Korea
Mandatory photo at the Namsan Tower
And just to end our little visit, the last section covers feels of Korea and superheroes. Above you'll find a photo of Haziq looking like a superhero, and all the heroes bowing down to his amazing strengths. hehe. Not to forget that he also became a Malaysian ambassador visiting Korea too. hehe. We ended our photo with a memorable heart by the Korean Namsan tower, near the love locks area. Haven't been to Korea together, but I guess this would do. hehe. Well, that's all for now. I hope you enjoyed reading my little preview of the Alive Museum in Sky Avenue, Resort World Genting. Till my next post. xx
