Welcome to the Magnum Pleasure Palace

Attended a exclusive Magnum event last night at Mandarin Orchard Presidential Suite for the launch of the Magnum Double Caramel.

Trying out the ice-cream!! It was sweet, really really sweet, and the chocalate coat kinda balance out abit of the "OH MY GOSH" sweetness from the Caramel. It's really yummy, but too much sweet made my throat funny, lolx... next time, going to share this with my sister, she love caramel!!

After 2 bites(I wanna show the thick coat of Caramel in between the chocalate and vanilla...  "FAIL"! lolx
It should look somethings like this(look at the pic below)

With Iris, Kas and Sara... enjoying a night filled with sweet sweet magnum.

Took this pic from Kas ^__^

Sweet stuff....

DJ booth was coated with "fake" chocalate bars...

And the spin/turn table...

Everythings in the suite were sweet... (The bedroom was filled with chocalate scent...)

The bathroom... "sweet" hunky sexy dude!!!! (Check out his abs!) ice-cream for our eyes!!

Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Care

[This is just an information entry - review will be up once I tried it out for a period of time]
[Disclaimer: Products were provided by Vichy]
Last week, pop by L'oreal Office for a small session on Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Care workshop. Just a brief meetup to introduce the new and improved product.

Comparing the both version..

The new version have the tri-circles on the top left side of the box/bottle.

Personally, I haven't tried any Vichy products before this small session... am pretty excited to try them out since I heard alot of good reviews on them. (Oh, and I also can't compare both old and new version of the hydrating Anti-imperfection care)
According to the release, the new and improved Vichy Normaderm Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Care is more hydrating and more effective on reducing blemishes.
Number 1 - Anti-Imperfection

The combination of 3 different acids to target different layers of skin for better results.

Number 2: Mattifying and Number 3 : 24Hrs Hydration

the texture..

When I tried both at the back of my hand. The older version was more creamy.. but blended out nicely and have a satin matte finishing feel. Where the New version was more watery and moist. Same as the old version, blended out nicely to a satin matte finishing feel. (I have not try this yet. Cos, I'm slowly switching my skincare routine.)

They provided us with 3 products to try it out.
Purifying Cleansing Gel, Imperfection-Prone Skin lotion and the New Tri-Activ Anti-Imperfection Care.

During the session, they also talked about the New Night Anti-Imperfection + Rejuvenating Care. A 24hrs hydrating gel-cream and Sophia mentioned about the Pore essence.

I'm SOLD by the description on both products and got them the next day (thankfully Guardian having 20% discount - but not on the new products; Night Cream-gel).

Anyway, I'm a sucker for anything soothing, hydrating and pores related. Lolx (mentioned about this purchase in this entry)

OK.. now I can't wait to slowly add in all products mentioned to my skincare regime.
