An Indulging Facial Experience That Radiates From Within: Cle De Peau BEAUTE

cdp facial Lounge6cdp facial Lounge4cdp facial Lounge3Opulence, Light, Radiance, Luxury – these are the magical words that come to mind when one hears the name Cle De Peau BEAUTE. A prestige line of skincare and make up products that debuted globally in 1999, Cle De Peau BEAUTE is committed in delivering excellence in all its products through state-of-the-art formulations. The brand name is synonymous to creating ultimate sophistication and luxury. Cle De Peau BEAUTE in French, means “key to beautiful skin” is going for that RADIANCE that will BECOME YOU, ultimately.

cdp pavilion outlet1cdp facial Lounge1cdp facial roomI was extremely fortunate to be given the opportunity to experience, first hand, a facial that promises ultimate comfort and maximum pampering. Pavilion was where I was heading on a Thursday afternoon. Upon arrival, the open space of Cle De Peau BEAUTE boutique was an inviting one. I was immediately mesmerized by the signature “le creme” (star product of the facial) being displayed on the wall, the colour theme of blue and creamy white almost transported me to a different world, a space that I could feel relaxed and unwind altogether. The facial room is sparingly designed to showcase pictures of Cle De Peau BEAUTE’s brand ambassador, the beautiful actress singer, Amanda Seyfried. Her beauty captures me and I was secretly wishing that I could have half the radiance she exudes after my facial, I would be more than happy already *_^

cdp facial room2A lovely young lady came in, her name is Pearly, she will be my beauty and facial consultant for the day. The moment her hands touched my face, I was lulled into the blissful world of facial comfort. With very gentle fingers and strokes, she meticulously removed all my make-up before starting with my proper facial.

cdp facial products1cdp facial products2I had the scrub, the cleansing, and the mask done. Everything feels very rich in texture, smooth and at times light and airy, but very clean after each step. I touched my face and almost couldn’t believe the subtleness of it and how it felt, almost bouncy a little, and very dewy and moisturized (I LIKE!).

cdp skincareWhile waiting for the mask to dry away (though not tightened, as this is a peel-off mask), Pearly explained, she even gave me a real good hand massage with the rich body cream. I also had a good shoulder rub and a special facial massage technique that improves my facial blood circulation (am pretty sure). Everything was done by hand, no machine was used. I felt like I was in heaven and almost dozed off along the process. If there were soothing music being played in the facial room, even better. Like icing on the cake, Pearly also applied the luxurious Intensive Eye Contour Cream (with its exclusively made platinum massager that comes with the cream) on my eyes to reduce puffiness, fight against dark circles, wrinkles and brighten the eyes area.

cdp facial Lounge2cdp facial PearlyAfter the facial, I was given a cup of aromatic tea to wind down and relax. I enjoyed my facial, tremendously and couldn’t have asked for more. I love for a fact that Cle De Peau BEAUTE is committed to protecting the earth by reducing deforestation through the use of bagasse paper in all its product packaging, Bagasse paper is a non-wood paper that contains bagasse fiber, a natural by-product from the process of sugarcane milling. What an awesome idea! They also believe in participating in the fair trade of the business and are supportive of this social movement.

cdp facial room1I had a 60 minutes Soin de Beaute intensive treatment facial massage. How can you enjoy the pampering offered by Cle De Peau BEAUTE? Very simple. All Cle De Peau BEAUTE facials are complimentary. This is how:

1. Soin de Beaute Intensive Facial (60 mins) worth RM300 – With a minimum purchase of RM600 Cle De Peau BEAUTE products. Choose from Cle De Peau BEAUTE brightening, anti-ageing or clarifying products + hand massage + eye cream massage

2. The Radiance Emanates From Within Facial (45 mins) worth RM250 – With a minimum purchase of RM450 Cle De Peau BEAUTE products. Star product “La Creme” will be used for firmness, radiance and fine texture + eye treament + hand massage

3. Masque de Beaute Relaxing Facial Massage (30 mins) worth RM150 – With a minimum purchase of RM350 Cle De Peau BEAUTE products. Restore skin hydration with this moisturizing facial with sheet masks. Skin is de-stressed (this facial does not include a complimentary relaxing hand massage)

cdp facial products5Each facial has different functions but it would be nice to try them all, don’t you think? Definitely must try, if you have not. I did walk away, after the facial, feeling all pampered and revitalized, but most of all, rubbed off that little RADIANCE that has BECOME part of ME, all thanks to Pearly (and Chery) and the awesome line of products (thanks for the lovely gifts). I will share more about Cle De Peau BEAUTE MAKE UP in my up-and-coming post. Stay tuned.

Cle De Peau BEAUTE facials are available at Parkson Pavilion (03.2141.9968) and Isetan KLCC (03.2164.6096). Check out the Radiance Becomes You video featuring Amanda Seyfried below. I just love how her natural beauty just radiates from within, the sparkles on her eye lids capture and reflect the light, effortlessly. A look that I love! Very exquisite. More on this Japanese with a touch of French brand here.

As always, stay luminous and RADIANT, always *_^

The House of Spirit

From HOME Journal Magazine Hong Kong (February 2012)

From HOME Journal Magazine Hong Kong (February 2012)

No, I am not talking about CONJURING *_^  I am looking at the home of Florence Lopez, an antique dealer who has such great taste in terms of home styling. In Saint-Germain-des-Pres, this home exhibits elegance, modernity with a touch of humour all at once, according to the HOME Journal February 2012 issue (Yes, I like back dated magazines!). According to her, furniture and works of art – provided they are quality pieces – have a heart and are living beings, almost like people (hence the title above for the article, I guess).

This chic Parisian apartment, situated in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, is located on the top floor of a building from the 18th century. Glazed and hyper luminous, it served for a long time as the atelier of a sculptor. (no wonder that creative space and bold colours). It’s definitely a space where you can let your creative juice flow! Home Journal is an inspirational interior designing magazine. More here.

Want A Bite of My Lipsticks?

make up wish listelegant glam in dark blue

Make-up changes everything – your appearance, your look and your mood for the day. A woman can never have enough of make-up. Having said that, I believe in make-up that looks more natural than anything else, but I also love to put on a bold red lip, once in a while (depending on occasions). There are those times when you buy a certain item and it just sits there for ages, crying out lonely voices to you, but there are times when some items which you will keep going back for, again and again. I guess make-up is supposed to be fun (like style). Better not be too serious about it *_^

Above is my wish list for the time being. Would love to try out some of the items here.

1. Immaculate liquid powder foundation by Hourglass. So much rave about this product. Love the fact that it is free of harmful chemicals and it is anti-aging and has skincare benefits too! Here for more.

2. Signature Real Complete Blending Primer by Missha. Saw some videos on this and it makes the skin glow. Not too sure if it will work on combination skin like mine? Here for more. If you are a big fan of Korean brands, here is a good place to start.

3. F80 Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki Brush by Sigma. I have been wanting to try out a stippling brush. Perhaps this is one I can start off with? Here for more

4. Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder by Chanel. Tried on one of these previously at a counter, the texture and finishing seems quite nice, though I am not a big fan of powder myself. Here for more.

5. Luminizing Face Enhancer by Cle De Peau. Alternatively, I wouldn’t mind trying this luminizing powder. Don’t you just love the bling bling eye-catching casing? Here for more.

6. Marvelous Moxie Lipstick by Bare Minerals. Love the fact that it’s all natural and chemical free. Here for more.

7. Pastille Cremes Lipsticks from Bite. Now this I would LOVE to have one as they look so luxurious in terms of texture and very pigmented as well. The fact that they are made of food grade colouring, really make them much more appealing to me, and sounds yummilicious too! (We ingest so much of lipstick, they should be SAFE, I feel. Here for more.

natural facesred lip looks

Well, no matter what look we choose, be it all natural no-make-up make up look, or a glam up red lip look (or anything in between), GIRLS just want to have FUN, don’t you agree? Do let me know if any of you have tried one of these products, and tell me what you all think?

Just have fun with your make-up *_^
