AFC Japan LipoDOWN 2 – My First Slimming Softgel

 

Recently, I was invited to review a new slimming supplement from AFC Japan. And I was given two different slimming supplements to choose from – LipoDOWN 2 or ActiveSLIM. This new slimming range is 100% natural and safe fat burning formulas.

AFC LipoDOWN 2 targets sedentary lifestyles with little exercise, helping to maximize fat burning round the clock for effective fat loss, inch loss and weight loss.

AFC ActiveSLIM targets active lifestyles who want to boost fat burning efficacy and shed stubborn flabbiness during workouts for slimmer body, improved body definition and shape.

Since I’m not an active person and I hardly exercise anyway, I eventually decided to review the LipoDOWN 2. It is recommended for those with :

  • Excess stubborn fat on multiple body areas
  • Sedentary lifestyle with little exercise

 

Product Claims

LipoDOWN 2, a new improved formula developed by Nihon Preventive Medical Laboratory Japan, is enhanced with 200% more fat burning prowess than LipoDOWN. It is particularly helpful for those with sedentary lifestyles and is clinically proven to work at the cellular level to shrink massive fat cells and increase fat metabolism for maximum fat burning round the clock.

Review – Yves Saint Laurent Top Secrets UV Shield High Protection UV Skincare SPF 50 PA++++

 

Do you know sun damage is the No.1 cause of premature skin aging? Even with low-intensity exposure to UV rays but in a long-term, it will still cause significant aging of the skin eventually.

Nevertheless, sunscreen is ultimately the most important skincare product I can’t leave without whether I’m in or out of home. And it is absolutely necessary during the timing from 10am to 4pm, even on a cloudy day.

Yves Saint Laurent Beaute Top Secrets UV Shield High Protection UV Skincare SPF 50 PA++++

Recently, I was being introduced to a new sunscreen by Yves Saint Laurent and what got me excited about this product is the PA++++! It is the Yves Saint Laurent Top Secrets UV Shield High Protection UV Skincare SPF 50 PA++++. It is a new addition to its Top Secrets collection and was launched in April 2013.

Kiehl’s Introduced Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream and Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream

 

Now in mid-40s, apart from pigmentation; wrinkles and loss of elasticity are other signs of aging I’ve been trying hard to fight off in the recent years. Though wrinkle is a common sign of aging but I actually could have minimized the look of wrinkles if I have taken good care of my skin when I was younger. I applied nothing at night, not even a moisturizer and I did not apply any sunscreen in the day too until I was in my early 30s.

I first noticed mild fine lines on my forehead and lower eyelid areas during my late 20s. It didn’t bother me much at that time and without realizing it, these fine lines (on my forehead) eventually turned into wrinkles after I reached my late 30s. Hence I will strongly advise you to start an anti-aging regimen if you have not. It’s never too late to start one even if you’re only in your early 20s. Here’s something for you!

Perricone MD Blue Plasma, a Daily No-Peel Peel

 

Perricone MD Blue Plasma

Perricone MD, a cosmeceuticals brand founded by Dr. Nicholas Perricone in 1997, has recently launched a daily no-peel peel product and it is the new BLUE PLASMA. This non-acidic daily peel for brightening and radiance, is scientifically formulated to deliver the benefits of a more traditional peel, without the side effects.

For years, Dr. Perricone has warned against the use of harsh chemical peels and abrasive exfoliators as methods to unveil new skin surface. Whether administered in spas, doctor’s offices, or purchased over the counter, their effects are not potentially damaging short term, but can impact skin’s long-term health. In addition, traditional peels can be acidic and work by “assaulting” the skin surface to get results. They essentially burn the skin off, attacking both dead and healthy skin cells, that often leads to redness, irritation and sensitivity. Scrub-like exfoliators create micro-tears on the surface, making skin more thin or fragile over time.

Upon spending years researching alternatives that deliver the same surface benefits without causing damage or irritation to the skin, Dr. Perricone created BLUE PLASMA.
