Is Your Face Sun-protected?

This is me under a super hot sun! Can you recognize me? 
I want sun protection!
This is another another photo of me when I'm driving. Yes, even in my own car! 
I want sun protection!
Do you know, the UV rays can also penetrate glass and are reflected from surfaces such as windows, water and even sand. 
 OMG! :O
Therefore, being indoors, in the city and especially outdoors, we have NO EXCUSE to neglect our daily sun protection routine! For me, is a MUST to apply a protective weapon on my face!

This is my powerful weapon to protect my complexion from the damaging UV rays!
 The new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 !
The new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 is  now formulated with AvoTriplex® Technology to give better, longer-lasting protection!
Back to the reason why I need sun protection. Actually not only me, all the ladies and gentlemen also need to protect your delicate complexion from this damaging UV rays!
  • Premature Aging! Caused by the sun’s UVA rays when its penetrate the skin
  • Skin become darken and burn, combine to break down the structure of our skin leaving it dull and lacking in elasticity, all these caused by the UVB rays.
  • Over the years, sun-damage becomes more apparent in the form of deeper wrinkles around oureyes and mouth as well as uneven pigmentation, which appears as Age Spots! :O
The new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 comes in 60ml light green and dark blue tube. The new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 is:
  • formulated for everyday lightweight
  • lasting wear
  • It is enriched with botanical extracts of tamarind, cotton and stevia. Hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested
  • Banana Boat products are Sun-Tested, Sun-Proven® protection against the sun’s rays. 
About the ingredients and the Banana Boat’s AvoTriplex® Technology.

The Banana Boat’s AvoTriplex® Technology combines:
1.) Avobenzone
  • a powerful absorber of UVA rays which cause long-term skin damage. 
  • UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin’s dermis and hypodermis layers to cause long-term harm to the skin.
2.) UVB absorbers
  • to protect against the burning effects of the sun. 
  • Without proper protection, UVB rays penetrate the skin’s epidermis layer, causing it to burn within minutes, depending on your skin type.
3.) A photo-stabilizing agent
  • to maintain longer-lasting sun protection without breaking down so easily.
My review for the new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50:
I have been using the new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 for about 14 days. It has light creamy texture. When I apply on my face and neck, it's not greasy or sticky at all! It doesn't feel heavy on my face and one good thing about this sunblock is it's high SPF protection! This can give a longer protection to my face! The new Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 blends perfectly with my liquid foundation and it actually help to hold my makeup.  

The Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 (60ml) is available at RM32.90 at all chain pharmacies, retail stores and hypermarkets.

Pesta Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade 2012 @Sunway Pyramid

Mid-Autumn Festival or Mooncake Festival or Lantern Festival already over but I still can't get enough of the delicious mooncakes and the colourful "tanglung"' lanterns. This is my 2nd year joining Sunway Pyramid's Mid-Autumn Festival celebration. The RAYA Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade 2011 @Sunway Pyramid was my blogpost for last year's celebration. Marching into the Moonlit Night, Pesta Tanglung 1Malaysia Parade resounds the spirit of 1Malaysia.
At about 7pm, the crowd began to gather @Blue Entrance of Sunway Pyramid.
People from different cultural background and races came together to join this celebration.

For this Fall/Winter 2012, GUESS introduces a new fashion forward collection that combines stylish prints with rich textures for women and men. The collection delivers new and innovative denim styles and ready-to-wear in a bold color palette.
The women’s collection pops with an assortment of on-trend prints, deep hues, and a wide range of textures that are perfect for the season. Exotic snow leopard prints stand out and are offered in the form of silky blazers, chiffon blouses, rouched dresses, and miniskirts. Jewel tones enrich this collection, with bright teal and hunter green skinny jeans, plum cocktail dresses, and magenta floral printed tops and dresses.
Denim styles provide a fresh approach to classic designs including leopard jacquard, rich floral prints, dip-dyed ombre jeans and treated denim that appears like vintage suede in a variety of earth tones.

For men’s the collection exudes a vintage Americana feel, with rugged denim pieces combined with traditional plaid. Distressed leather bomber jackets in soft beiges and black help to complete the rustic look. Knit cardigans with oversized shawl collars in a range of grays add to the effortless, relaxed look, perfect for the cooler temperatures of fall. Distinctive textures can also be seen in the men’s line with rich coated denim, velvet suede like jeans, and chunky cable knit sweaters.
The exclusive, limited edition Tiësto Capsule Collection took center stage on the runway.
 The 22 piece line is inspired by the growing power of electronic music and the lifestyle surrounding it in today’s pop culture. The highly anticipated collection drew inspiration from electronic music and dance culture.
Included in the offering are skinny-fit jeans, graphic print tees which feature reminiscent of digital light shows and video projections of a Tiësto performance, leather jackets and coated twill jackets that add an edgy sexiness using moto-jacket details. This all comes detailed and trimmed with the custom GUESS/ Tiësto logo in black and electric blue.
