Giveaway + Product Review: AMMELTZ YOKO YOKO Heat Patch for Menstrual Pain

Menstrual cramps, also known as dysmenorrhea or menstrual pains are periods in which a woman has crampy lower abdominal pain. I have been suffering the menstrual pains since my early teens, from slight discomfort to severe pain. :(
My menstrual pain normally lasts for about 24hours and the pain is usually at its worst on the first day of menstruation. This menstrual pain causes me absent from work, events , school (during school time) and other activities.
I have tried numerous remedies such:
  • eating dark chocolate
  • drinking warm water
  • reduce caffeine intake by not drinking my favourite coffee
  • increase calcium intake by drinking milk
and others. All these remedies didn't really help to reduce the pain. I even take pain killer to reduce the pain if the first day of menstruation during my school and uni exams.

Last month, I was introduced to a new product ~ AMMELTZ YOKO YOKO Heat Patch for Menstrual Pain
The AMMELTZ YOKO YOKO Heat Patch for Menstrual Pain is a new product from Kobayashi Pharmaceutical, one of the major pharmaceutical company in Japan established in 19th century running their business for over 120 years.

  • Odorless so that it can be used in any occasion

The AMMELTZ YOKO YOKO Heat Patch for Menstrual Pain comes in a small size with the measurement: 14cm x 7cm. It is odorless and I can use it during my work and attending events. 
The ingredients for the  AMMELTZ YOKO YOKO Heat Patch for Menstrual Pain are Iron Powder, Water, Activated Carbon, vermiculite, salt, super absorbent polymer.

 How does this heat patch works?
Heat therapy targets pain at its root cause as it helps improve blood circulation. By warming the affected area, the volume of blood flow increases and it produces vasodilation, which increases the supply of oxygen and removal of metabolic waste, leading to better healing and reduced pain.

I have been using this product since February and it is effective to relieve my menstrual pain. This heat patch provides heat therapy which can improve blood circulation and reduce my menstrual pain symptoms. It has a safe temperature which is 40°C and warming effect last for 8 hours. Moreover, it is convenient, effective, safe and non-medicinal. :)
Direction for use:
1.) Before I apply the  AMMELTZ YOKO YOKO Heat Patch for Menstrual Pain on my targeted area, I make sure the my skin is dry and clean. 
2.) I open the sachet to take out the heat patch.

 
3.) I gently peel away the protective film on the back of the heat patch.
4.) Apply adhesive side of the heat patch to the skin over the painful area.
5.) After use, slowly peel off the heat patch. Do not use the product for more than 8 hours in a day. Each patch is for single use.

During the application of the AMMELTZ YOKO YOKO Heat Patch for Menstrual Pain, the painful area feeling warm and it helps to relieve my menstrual pain. I used in the morning before leaving my house to work. I also carry another pack of heat patch in my handbag during my menstruation. It is small, thin and odorless.

BelleWave ClearWave Range (Product Review & Giveaway)

I wish I had clear and flawless skin but I don't. Enlarged pores, blackheads and pimples can be seen on my face. :( 
Few weeks ago, I have received the BelleWave ClearWave Range and a from BelleWave Malaysia for review purpose. I have been using this range of products for about three weeks and it's time for me to share with you my experience using them.
BelleWave has been in Malaysia for 15 years and they are salon exclusive products. BelleWave products is a Swiss made products free from mineral oil and its botanical based with NO animal testing.

The Bellewave’s ClearWave is a fine selection of problem-solving essentials targeted at banishing blemished complexions. Curb overactive sebaceous glands without drying out skin.
Powerful concentrates of rigorously selected ingredients help maintain the hydrolipidic mantel of skin while whisking away pore-clogging impurities, and reducing and controlling excessive shine. The result: Purified and tightened pores, and healthy skin that glows enviously.

The five products I was using for the past 3 weeks:
1.) BelleWave ClearWave Deep Cleansing Milk
2.) BelleWave ClearWave De-Bac Washing Foam
3.) BelleWave ClearWave De-Bac Astringent Lotion
4.)BelleWave ClearWave  Comedone Repair Activist
5.)BelleWave  Sunwave UV Extra DNA De-Tox UV Block

My daily beauty routine for day and night:
(eye care and night moisturizer were not shown in the below flowchart)
1.) ClearWave Deep Cleansing Milk (200ml, RM168)
 
My 1st beauty step is to remove make-up or sunblock by using this non-drying cleansing milk. This deep cleansing milk helps balance the hydrolipidic mantel of skin whilst removing pore-clogging impurities, oil and make-up. It also works to clear and prevent blemishes. Moisturizing and toning, it imparts freshness and comfort to the epidermis.It's suitable for combination & oily / blemish-prone skin.
This cleansing milk contains the following active ingredients:
Fomes Officinalis (Mushroom) Extract: Being an astringent, it enhances skin's tone and firmness greatly. Apart from its moisturizing activities, it also has a cutaneous pore-tightening effect, minimizing the visible appearance of skin suffering from excess sebum secretions.

Laminaria Saccharina Algae Extract: Normalizes the sebaceous secretion flow.

Panthenol (Provitamin B5): Has protective and moisturizing actions. It helps restore and maintain natural skin moisture, leaving skin feeling velvety and smooth.

Rosemary Essential Oil: With toning, anti-oxidizing, antiseptic and purifying virtues.

Peppermint Essential Oil: With refreshing and toning properties.
The ClearWave Deep Cleansing Milk comes in a pump bottle and it make the user easy to dispense the cleansing milk. The texture is smooth easy to massage on my face and neck to remove my make-up and impurities.
Every evening, I apply the ClearWave Deep Cleansing Milk on pre-moistened skin of face and neck. Lightly massage to remove make-up and impurities. Next, rinse with a soft sponge soaked with lukewarm water.



2.)  ClearWave De-Bac Washing Foam (200ml, RM168)
The ClearWave De-Bac Washing Foam is my 2nd step to clean my skin. This ultra-fresh washing foam gently cleanses and lifts away the pore-clogging impurities and oil of skin. It also helps normalize the sebaceous secretion flow, which assists in staving off the formation of blemish spots. It imparts clearness and freshness to the epidermis.

It has a pleasant smell and does not foam much when used. It is refreshing and leaving my skin feeling smooth after used. Every morning and evening, I used two pumps of this washing foam on my pre-moistened skin of face and neck. Lightly massage to remove impurities. Rinse with lukewarm water. 

3.)  ClearWave De-Bac Astringent Lotion (200ml, RM168)
The 3rd step of my beauty step is toning, applying the ClearWave De-Bac Astringent Lotion. This lightly-textured antibacterial astringent lotion gently whisks away pore-clogging impurities and oil that can lead to imperfections. It reduces the formation of blackheads and blemish spots, tightens the pores, and soothes and moisturizes the epidermis. Skin is refreshed and clean, yet feels dewy and comfortable.

Peppermint Essential Oil: An aromacological fragrance with toning, refreshing and soothing features.
Panthenol (Provitamin B5): Promotes healing. Has protective and moisturizing actions. It helps restore and maintain natural skin moisture, leaving the skin feeling velvety and smooth.

Once again this astringent lotion comes in an user friendly pump. I really like this lotion. The ClearWave De-Bac Astringent Lotion helps to soothe and reduce my pimples inflammation. Every morning and evening, I soak a cotton pad with lotion and smoothen over cleansed skin of face. Pat dry and follow with day or night skin treatment.

This is my favourite product in this range! The ClearWave  Comedone Repair Activist is a first-of-its-kind treatment for comedones, commonly known as blackheads and whiteheads —effortlessly dislodges blockages and impurities. An unsurpassed concoction developed from extensive research, it contains unique ingredients with an exclusive biological re-equilibrating agent that balances cutaneous disorders typical of oily and problem skins.

This light treatment serum instantly reduced my enlarged pores and make them appear smaller. After using for about a week, the blackheads look less visible and my skin appear smoother. My skin become less oily and shiny. My pimples scars also become less visible.
How I apply this product?

Soak a cotton pad with lotion and smoothen over cleansed skin of face (especially on T-zone, targeted area such as nose, cheek and chin or acne area) every morning and evening. Pat dry. Follow with my usual day and night skin treatment.

It gonna be a fun family day at Sunway Lagoon on 22 March 2015! 
The Walk & Hunt In the Wild event will be held @Sunway Lagoon, Asia’s one stop fun destination!
 
The Walk & Hunt In the Wild event is a walkathon combined treasure hunt at the newly refurbished Wildlife Park!  
 

Happening on the same day, the unique two-in-one event will  see public members of all ages take part in an energetic morning walk around Sunway Lagoon, followed by an exciting wildlife-themed treasure hunt challenge together with their respective teams, consisting of 4to 6 members each and it  is encouraged to have at least one child in each participating team. 
Held for the very first time in Malaysia, the event aims to educate the public about the wildlife as well as to promote togetherness among their friends and family members, as they go through a host of activities and challenges throughout the first half of the day.
The road map for this fun event.

As Malaysia’s premier theme park, we are excited to be the first to host such an event with two unique activities that promote the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle as well as unity among fellow Malaysians. Here at Sunway Lagoon, the fun never stops.

Through Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Learning Programme, this event will enhance the participants’ knowledge on wildlife, as they are required to complete tasks around the Wildlife Park in order to complete the challenge. Once the event concludes, participants would then have the privilege to enjoy the theme park for the rest of the day,” he added.

Sunway Lagoon’s Wildlife Park is Malaysia’s first fully interactive as well as educational parkwhich is home to more than 150 species of  exotic animals with more than 80 species-specific exhibits of exotic, small and friendly animals, a diverse range of birds, fishes, reptilesand mammals.
