EONIQ | CUSTOMISED YOUR OWN WATCH

Anyone who knows me would know how much I love watches. Downside about it is that, sometimes, I really love a particular design, but feel that it’s not worth to buy it because of the mechanics/how it’s made and the whole package. ANOTHER reason why, it’s too common. You’re bound to bump into a friend or even a stranger with the same watch. Well, I don’t mind if it’s a good watch, that means someone knows the quality and have the same liking as me. Nothing wrong with that.

But what if, you had a ONE-OF-A-KIND watch? Everybody loves limited edition – a unique, one in a million kind.

I stumbled upon instagram on a brand called EONIQ – a start up fashion brand started by three friends in Hong Kong led by Quinn Lai.

I knew immediately, this was the perfect gift.

It was pretty easy to work on.

You can create your watch on your laptop/desktop, tablet or even your mobile phone. BUT of course if you want to upload a file for engraving, best to do it on laptop/desktop.

When I first saw this, I was a little skeptical tbh. I know everyone would.

p/s. spot the watch at the end. LOL

I contemplated, searched and looked up at them for a really long time. And decided what could go bad? Everything’s clean and pretty good on social media.

Few reasons why I went ahead with it.

1. It’s a custom-made watch. Meaning it’s limited edition/one in a million (okay, not even one in a million, it’s ONE in the world) kind of watch. Anyone who has the same watch/design, would be a copycat. 

2. With that, it’s a very strong personal statement and a very meaningful gift that people who value it would really appreciate it. 

3. It’s a mechanical watch – the Miyota 8 series movement which is the legendary 21 jewel powering some of the most robust watches including the drive and pilot watches. Mechanical watches right now are highly overpriced with a good quality/brand and would at least cost RM2.5k for a good one. 

4. The watch is entirely hand assemmbled and checked by a single watchmaker, with the proper tradition way of watchmaking (HOW COOL IS THAT??) 

Asides that, the all-time-famous Daniel Wellington where 8/10 would own have owned one, doesn’t allow you to customise it, AND, it’s an analog quartz watch. Which retails now roughly at RM800. When DW came into the whole Social Media sphere, I was excited. I loved the clean, sleek minimal yet classy design. But I was in a hunt for something sentimental, something more personal, and EONIQ came to me. Not literally to me, but their ads on Instagram appeared on my feed.

SO,

Took me 5 days to decide and design the watch, and another 4 weeks to arrived to me. (that’s a very loooong time)

– Creating the watch was easy, steps were given and everything was in a single page. 

– The difficult part was the finalise and select the final design to check-out with because EVERYTHING LOOKS SO GOOD! 

– Customer service via email and Facebook were really quick, responsive and helpful with my queries. (I needed it within 4 weeks and they were able to send it to me even though the website states it would take about 5-6 weeks) 

When it finally arrived, I couldn’t be any happier. I was really satisfied with the finishing, how it turned out to me, the rose gold rims and the brown leather strap.

DocLab HA Face Ampoule

Face Ampoules are now getting much more popular and more brands are coming in. Before this, ampoules were highly used in the makeup artist industry because of the instant and long-lasting effect it creates. As the trend follows, ampules aren’t just available to salons and MUA but anyone from home too. It creates a great skin base or once a week treatment just like a face mask. I’ve been given a chance to try out a new set of face ampoules by DocLab which is voted as Korea’s No 1 face ampoules – DocLab HA Face Ampoule
DocLab HA Face Ampoule apparently claims to boost skin moisture and provide deep hydration with their Hyaluronic Acid technology. ALSO, with Collagen and Ginseng Extract as their active ingredients, these face ampoule are able to restore skin suppleness, elasticity, retextures skin and making your skin smooth as well as protect your skin from harmful chemicals and pollutants.
Face Ampoule are known as small airtight products that are filled with concentrated high active ingredients, they usually come in sizes like 5ml/10ml but sold in boxes so you get maybe about 30ml-50ml depending how many face ampoule are in a box.
What are the benefits of using DocLab’s Hyaluronic Acid Face Ampoule?
– Makeup last longer
– Skin is more hydrated
– Controls sebum, balance your skin PH (Hence oily/dry/combo/normal skin wouldn’t be a problem)
– Repairs skin (anti-wrinkles & Hyper-pigmentation)
– Skin is more radiant and supple.
How to use the DocLab’s Hyaluronic Acid Face Ampoules?
Day: Cleanse -> Tone -> Ampoule -> Moisturiser -> Sunblock -> Makeup
Night: Cleanse -> Tone -> Ampoule -> Night Cream
Treatment: Cleanse -> Tone -> Ampoule -> Mask -> Moisturiser
My thoughts on it:
When I opened the box and took out the first face ampoule, I was a little confused and unsure of how to open the face ampoule. It was then I realised I had to slowly tilt the tip to one side and push it down. There is a rubber seal/quality seal inside which is sealed up air-tight so even though it was a little confused with the packaging I think it’s a good one as it’s packed nicely ensuring quality will be remained in there. Also, once you’ve opened it, you can’t close it back, therefore you know it’s a legit quality seal.
This face ampoule has a very light watery texture, in fact, it felt like water and I was very afraid of spilling it. Lesson learnt; pour it on my palm not the back of my hand. Took me a while to figure out how to apply it as it is so watery, so in the end, i placed it on my palm and dabbed it onto my face like how i would use any of my treatment essence (Ex: SKII, EL Micro Essence Lotion, Missha Treatment Lotion, etc…) With this, the product is pat directly onto my face and I would also ensure it’s not placed onto only one spot or dripping everywhere. Unlike serum which usually has a thicker, much more concentrated texture, this is watery and you just need to get a hang of it.
I love how it doesn’t have a sticky feeling to it like certain sheet mask or serum. It’s not heavy and doesn’t irritate your skin. HA is known for deep hydration and most HA products are very sticky, so I was really surprised with this as well.
I was worried at first, as I suffer from Rosecea and with the high heat during this month, my face has been flaring and acting up. I hesitated and wanted to push this till the redness has gone away but after two weeks I realised that I could give this a shot to see how it works on sensitive skin as well. How did it go? It did not flare up my skin but i wake up with a morning with no redness. Then again the minute the heat comes in, the redness starts again (but this can’t be changed)
Would I recommend it? 
Yes.

Dr Morita Face Mask – Hyaluronic Acid Essence

Face mask is something that I use once every two days. That is almost 3-4 times per week. It’s just a quick and easy way to re-hydrate and rejuvenate my skin the quick, easy and efficient way. This would also mean that I’ve gone through a whole lot of different brands of face mask and there’s bound to have good and bad ones. Now i introduce you – Dr Morita Face Mask

Almost four years ago, I came across this brand in Singapore and I tried one of their face mask which was really good. But over the years, I’ve never really seen it in Malaysia and I go through so many face mask that it did not really come across my mind until recently I’ve been spotting it in Guardian Malaysia and friends have been talking about it. So when Dr. Morita approached for a review, I couldn’t say no.

My all time favourite would be the Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask (The Blue One). This goes into my #monthlyFavourites as well as #HolyGrail

Dr Morita also has a starter pack that comes with

  • Narcissus Whitening Essence Ultra Slim Facial Mask
  • Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Essence Mask
  • Collagen Repair Essence Mask.

 

 
The packaging on a first impression looks the same as any other face mask but what’s really good about it is that their face mask sheets are made of Tencel Silk cotton mask, a man-made fiber that allows all the essence and active ingredients to be absorbs and to the skin and not only that, it doesn’t feel tacky, sticky, hard, and dry after applying it for 10-20 minutes.
Packed and sealed nicely
They aren’t many sheet face mask with really good quality. One that isn’t harsh that irritates the skin or the ones that dries out quick.
The few problems that I face mostly with other brands sheet mask are; (something that i define bad)
  1. Cotton sheets are too dry/Face Mask dries up and stiffens after 15 minutes.
  2. Face Mask are either too dry or too “drenched” and ends up either NOTHING being absorbed onto the skin or essenve/water dripping everywhere
  3. Face mask sliding down my face or not fitting well.


but with Dr. Morita face mask, not only it’s drenched with the right amount, it doesn’t leave essence dripping down my chin or face. The face mask is quite a good size fitting without it sliding down my face as well. Not only that, after 15-20 minutes, it’s not dry and I can still easily remove and put it on my neck/hands and leg for a hand-me-down mini pampering mask session.

So, i’ve tried the few Dr Morita mask for the past two weeks, and I have to say, my skin has become brighter, clearer, smoother and much more moisturising.
Due to the whole El-Nino and the heat that this country is facing. My rosecea has been flaring up really bad. #noJoke and I shall talk/share about it one day.
But, let me show you a before after photo of my left chin to show you the effects.
Throughout my entire skincare routine for both day and night HAVE been the same with the same products that i’ve been rotating throughout the month and the ONLY thing i’ve changed and added is the Dr Morita face mask.

 

Right before this, I’ve been having de-hydrated dry sensitive with Rosacea flaring up which can be quite annoying. Moisturisers, Face Oils and Serums were not enough to re-hydrate my skin. So i’ve put it to a test with Dr Morita Face Mask to see how it reacts with sensitive skin.

I’m SERIOUS! If you look at this photo and the “BEFORE” photo, you can actually see the dry skin patches that are now no longer around thanks to Dr Morita Face Mask. I think my pictures have shown much more than my words can describe. Those who knows me will know that I always say no matter skin type you have, in whatever weather you are in, be in dry, oily or combination – hydration is always important. Just because you have oily skin doesn’t mean you skin your moisturisers or you can ignore hydration and just because you have normal skin doesn’t mean you can ignore. Prevention is better than cure remember?

Kononnya, Dr Morita Face Mask the number 1 Best Selling Facial Sheet mask in Hong Kong & Taiwan. And as of right now, there are 13 series of facial sheet mask & 2 watery cream (sleeping mask) in Malaysia & it’s exclusively in Guardian nationwide.

If your’e looking for face mask, need a quick fix or you’re travelling. Or even just going to Guardian, Grab yourself a box and try our some of Dr Morita Face Mask! They are available in Guardian Malaysia Nationwide (only exclusive in Guardian).
