SKINFOOD Royal Honey Launch - Queens of Our Hearts

SKINFOODians are probably aware of the sweet surprises we’ve been springing on the public since May! We don’t think many people missed our SKINFOOD Royal Honey Launch, but just in case, here’s a little summary of what we were up to.

Last month we were in fahrenheit88, promoting the latest addition to the SKINFOOD Malaysia family: the Royal Honey Line. Honey has been known since ancient times as a powerful, natural beauty aid, and this skincare line is no exception. Enriched with pure royal black honey and royal jelly, Royal Honey products promote skin rejuvenation and radiance, while replenishing and locking in skin moisture for up to 48 hours.

The Royal Honey Line launch also saw a very special guest: Miss Moon Jong-Min, SKINFOOD Korea’s very own professional makeup artist! She currently oversees the makeup channels for SKINFOOD Malaysia, HK, China, Indonesia, Brunei, Singapore and Jakarta. Ms. Moon was on hand to share her knowledge and skills through the makeup workshops we held during the launch. A small handful of lucky SKINFOODians on Facebook won the chance to participate in these workshops, and some even brought their mothers along too. Just in time for Mother's Day!

Along with the workshops and fantastic products on offer, attendees also got to enjoy event-exclusive GWP packages, and those who bought RM250 and above of SKINFOOD products got to enjoy makeovers from Ms Moon and the SKINFOOD makeup team, with photoshoots by Cite (M) Sdn Bhd for recruitment into the Ray Girl, ViVi Star, Mina Missy and Queen Model searches. Perhaps we’ll see a lovely SKINFOODian within their respective pages soon!

The SKINFOOD Malaysia team loves the Royal Honey Line so much, you can count on lots more chances to get a hold of it all through June, too. When you purchase RM150 or above of SKINFOOD merchandise at your favourite SKINFOOD outlet, you’ll get a pure Honey Jar of tropical wildflower honey. Purchase RM250 and above of SKINFOOD merchandise to get a Royal Honey Premier Kit! The offer, of course, is valid while stocks last.

You'll find more photos of our Royal Honey Launch in our Facebook albums! To keep up with SKINFOOD’s next events, promotions and beauty tips, make sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Stay beautiful, everyone! :)

SKINFOOD Love Stories Contest - A Cruise To Remember

Back in February we ran the SKINFOOD Love Stories Contest, where we asked SKINFOODians to send in their best true love, sweet love and first love stories. Allysha Tong sent in a tale which went like this:
One Valentine’s Day years ago, hubby’s car broke down. We were still dating then and I was  really upset as I had looked forward to a romantic dinner together. Even worse, it was raining, the roads were jammed and we were running late! 
Sometimes life does imitate art. Like a scene from a romantic Korean drama, hubby pushed the car out of traffic’s way and dashed into a hawker center nearby. He chatted up a stall operator and amazingly managed to ‘rent’ a bike!
Everything happened so fast that I was still in a daze as we weaved our way through the crawling traffic and reached the restaurant, albeit completely dripping wet.  I looked foolish with heels, nice dress and all! The flabbergasted waiters were hesitant but after some ‘explaining’, they allowed us in. 
Everyone stared; but I was SO touched with his loving devotion. That was the sweetest Valentine’s ever. Right there and then I knew HE’s the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. 
Nowadays whenever tensions start to brew, hubby often asks cheekily whether I need a ‘romantic bike ride through the rain’ to calm down. That always has us laughing and getting all lovey-dovey again!
Allysha's story won her, among other things, a Dinner By The Cruise for two, courtesy of Mines Cruise. She and her husband got to enjoy to a romantic, private 4-course dinner while cruising slowly around the lake.

Congratulations, Allysha--and this time, we're sure you got to stay nice and dry!

A lovely couple enjoy the evening view

We're also very thankful to Mines Cruise for sponsoring this lovely couple! As well as romantic dates, The Dinner By The Cruise also caters to large parties, celebrations and other events. If you'd like to book them for your next do, just call 603.8942.1818 (8.30am – 5.30pm) or 603.89458860 (11.00am – 10.00pm). And leave them some love at their Facebook page,

Come To Our Tea Party!

We’re launching a fantastic new product line in Malaysia very soon--the Good Afternoon BB Creams, with five distinct make-up effects and five varieties of beautifying teas that not only conceal blemishes, but also reduce them from within. Normal BB cream tends to be heavy and tacky, but our unique, superlight formulas contain blooming and oil-controlling powder for long-lasting coverage without that sticky feeling. Plus, every formula is rated SPF 20 PA+ and above to protect your skin when the heat is on!

In conjunction with this launch, we’re hosting a BB Cream Afternoon Tea party for a select few SKINFOODians and their guests! We’ll be at Harrods KLCC on Friday, 24 February, from 3 pm onwards, treating them with a special SKINFOOD goodie bag tailored to their skin needs, makeup tips and discussions, and--of course--some refreshing afternoon tea.

SKINFOOD Malaysia has left two places spare just for Facebook fans, so this is your chance to join in. We’ve left a password on our Facebook page, and the first two commenters to comment on this post with the correct password will be invited to the BB Cream Afternoon Tea Party. Both lucky fans will also be able to bring one guest of their choosing with them to the party! (Also remember to leave a valid email address in your comment, or we won’t be able to send you your invitation--and the questionnaire to customise the goodie bag for you and your guest.)

The password is out there on Facebook, and we look forward to seeing who will join us at our delightful tea party!

Dreaming of a Chocolaty Christmas!

We probably all have our little secret cravings, yes? In times of stress, some people will start craving salt, starch, spice--or even sweets. When I'm up to my ears in work, I start craving chocolate. Badly.

Instead of nibbling on something dark, rich and milky, I decided some information would be a nice distraction.

A few sweet facts about chocolate:
  • Chocolate is made from cacao beans. Cacao flowers and pods grow straight out of the tree trunk! The tree itself has the scientific name of Theobroma--which means 'food of the gods'.
  • The Mayans used cacao beans as currency--some people even tried to counterfeit them by carving little clay beans.
  • In early times, fermented, dried cocoa beans were ground and mixed with hot water, spices and flowers, and then frothed between two containers. (Sounds a bit like Milo tarik…)
  • Way back when, it was a drink for the rich--the Aztec King Montezuma was said to drink 50 cups of it a day!
  • When the Western world discovered chocolate, it was considered a health food and medicine. It was prescribed for fevers, to cool the body, aid digestion and relieve pain.
  • The first milk chocolate bar was invented in 1875, by Daniel Peter and Henry Nestle. They added condensed milk to solid chocolate, and voila! White chocolate is white because it doesn't contain any actual cocoa solids--just the cocoa butter. 
  • We know now that cocoa has anti-inflammatory properties, and it's a great antioxidant, which eliminates free radicals from the body. Weight for weight, dark chocolate has more than 5 times the antioxidants of blueberries!
There's also another type of chocolate to indulge in that absolutely won't affect your weight.

SkinFood's Choco Smoky Makeup Line

We've just introduced a brand new makeup line in our Malaysian stores, and this is it! The Choco Smoky Makeup Line is a softer, smokier and sweeter alternative to harsh, dark eye makeup--but just as dramatic. Deep, chocolaty shades will enhance your natural beauty, while the cocoa in every product minimizes skin irritation while moisturizing and protecting your skin. You'll love how it just melts onto the skin and lasts for as long as you need it to.

(In this case, chocolate's really a girl's best friend.)

Start off with the four-colour Eye Palette (RM73.90), which contains three eye shades and one eyeliner for perfect smoky lids. Then match it with our delicious Volume Mascara (RM42.90), which curls, coats and lengthens lashes without clumping--or our Eyebrow Jam (RM31.90), for brows that resist sweat, water, oil and smudging. Enhance the look further with one of our four nude shades of Lip Color (RM31.90), with natural wax, mango butter and coconut oil for shine, not stickiness! Finish off the whole look with out Nail Kit (RM31.90)--three delicious that make nail gradients easy to achieve, even for beginners at home. It's a look delicious enough to eat!

You can get the whole Choco Smoky Line for RM212.50 at your nearest friendly Skinfood Outlet--it's the perfect last-minute indulgent gift for Christmas, for friends, or just because. Since when have we ever needed reasons for chocolate? ;)
