New Fresh Fruity Skincare | Mary Kay Botanical Effects
Let's talk about skin care. I still remember as a high school student, I only only used cleanser as my only skin care routine. Why if you ask? Well, I didn't know what toner or moisturizer was. Sounds hard to believe right? Well if I could share with my 17 year old me and everyone else that is as confuse about skincare (but don't know who to ask), let me introduce to you my  5 Step Skin Care Routine with Mary Kay Botanical Effects.

We all know the drill, 1st - cleanse your face. But what comes next?  

With Mary Kay Botanical Effects Revamped Skin Care line, it's easy to get started plus am totally loving their new fresh packaging. There are a total of 5 products in Mary Kay Botanical Effects - Botanical Effect Gel Cleanser, Botanical Effect Exfoliating Scrub, Botanical Effect Toner, Botanical Effect Moisturizer and Botanical Effect Moisturizer Lotion SPF30.

INGREDIENT 
This Botanical Effect range are filled with Dragon Fruit extracts which is best known to be rich in antioxidants to help fight skin-damaging free radicals! It also contains fatty acids, several B-complex vitamins (which includes "anti stress vitamin" B1 (thiamin), plus B2 (riboflavin) and B3 (niacin), along with minerals like iron, calcium and phosphorous. Aloe Vera is the second key extract which gives your skin the extra boost for antioxidants that help to provide healthy skin, cell turnover, contain high vitamin E and help maintain skin's moisture barrier. Also did you notice the packaging colour matches the 2 key ingredients - dragon fruit (pink) and aloe vera (green).

PRODUCTS

BOTANICAL EFFECTS GEL CLEANSER
127 g | RM 75
Use your cleanser in the morning and night. Love the fact that it's a gel cleanser, which is more gentle to the skin as compare to foam type. If you're having dry or sensitive skin, this gel cleanser would be more suited for you. The gel cleanser cleans deeply and effectively and even dissolves all traces of oil. Which leaves your face fresh, clean and smelling sweet.


BOTANICAL EFFECTS EXFOLIATING SCRUB
88 ml | RM 75
Use your exfoliating scrub morning or night after gel cleanser 2-3 times a week. Love the lovely scent that comes along with the scrub. You can feel the fine beads in the gel gently exfoliating your skin to remove dead and dull skin. Which leaves your pores feeling free and your face feeling clean.

BOTANICAL EFFECTS TONER
147 ml | RM 75
Use your toner in the morning and night after cleansing/scrub. Apply the toner around your face and neck to remove traces of dirt. This helps to brighten up your complexion as you wipe away your dull dead skin cells along with any remaining dirt or oil. Either use a cotton pad or apply the toner on your face.

BOTANICAL EFFECTS MOISTURIZER
85 g | RM 85
My favourite part of the skin care routine. Moisturize! Use your moisturizer day and night after applying your toner. Just like how our body needs water, so does our skin! Apply the moisturizer on your face and neck. It's lightweight quick absorbing gel does not feel sticky and leave skin feeling moisturize all day long.

BOTANICAL EFFECTS MOISTURIZER LOTION SPF 30
50 ml | RM 65
Use your moisturizer lotion SPF 30 only during the day as it protects your skin from the sun. It's white creamy texture will help protect your skin from the sun along with moisturizing it. It's like a 2 in 1 deal!

Delightful Asian Fusion Winter Menu at 103 Coffee Workshop C180

Delightful Asian Fusion Winter Menu at 103 Coffee Workshop C180
Can you believe that it's already January? Any of you still having Christmas withdrawal symptoms? Especially having some wholesome Christmas dishes? Recently I went to a cafe to test out their Asian fusion winter menu. 103 Coffee Workshop C180 Cafe is located at Cheras Selatan.
One look at their cafe and you can view their contemporary minimalist themed cafe. I went during Christmas time hence the snowflakes decoration. The cafe is family friendly for meals together, I really can't understand cafes that have low tables and chairs which makes it hard to enjoy a proper meal or even coffee at times (I guess i'm too old for all the hipster furniture LOL).

There are 6 dishes for their Winter Menu, which are both a mix of western and Asian cuisines. 

Ratatouille
RM 19.90
Inspired by the French and memorable to all who watched the lovable Disney movie is the ever famous wholesome dish. Instead of the usual, this Ratatouille is served as a stew with cheese baked vegetables along with sunny side up and garlic toast!

Goma Yaki Udon
RM 15.90
Want a light meal? Well why not try having your Udon with Japanese Sesame Salad Dressing Sauce.

Orange and Smoked Duck Salad
RM 19.90
Love the thickness and tenderness of the smoked duck along with mixed green leaves, orange, cherry tomatoes, spicy wedges covered in house marmalade dressing and  orange candy.

Smoked Duck Breast Aglio Olio
RM 19.90
Spaghetti aglio olio with sliced smoked duck breast, button mushroom and arugula. Great that it wasn't oily and matched splendidly with the tomatoes, cheese and mushroom.

Thyme and Lemongrass Infused with Roast Spring Chicken
RM 32.90
Aromatic roast spring chicken with spicy wedges, mixed green and chili & pineapple jam. This ought to be my favourite dish of the bunch. Usually for Christmas there would be a Turkey to share with the entire family but with this spring chicken, you can indulge it all on your own.

Teriyaki Chicken Don
RM 16.90
If you feel like you want something familiar, then go for the standard Japanese cuisine chicken teriyaki rice bowl served with spring egg.

Aside from the unique Japanese fusion food, a cafe is never complete without coffee. Especially to up your instagram game with a latte picture while you're cafe hopping with your friends.

Strawberry Latte
RM 13.90
Strawberry ice with milk and espresso. This ought to be the first strawberry latte I have ever heard of. Love the choice of presentation along with the unique drink combination. Sweet drink to help keep you awake.

Iced Blended Mocha
14.90
It's a huge drink filled with whip cream and ice. I prefer the strawberry latte over this. Then again it could be personal preference


Flat White 
RM 11.90
Aside from that, I also got a chance to try out two kinds of hand brew coffee, which are Kenya Neri Kiamabara and Kenya Ethopia Yigacheffe Areka. Both of which have their unique taste and smell.
The dishes above are exclusively available at C180 outlet at Cheras Selatan for their winter menu, which will be available until 26th January 2017! Make sure to bring your friends and family if you're at the area!
