New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink

new moon inner radiance collagen
I believe almost everyone heard of the brand ‘New Moon’ from their popular health products such as Essence of Chicken & Bird’s Nest.

During exam periods, my parents would often buy boxes of Essence of Chicken for my brother and me to take before school. I must admit, the taste isn’t very yummy but it really did help to keep me alert and less restless especially when my exams were in the morning.

New Moon has launched their latest product, ‘New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink’. The first collagen drink to be formulated and manufactured in Japan with one of the highest collagen content at 13,000mg with active whitening Properties! It’s also certified radiation free..

A few other bloggers and I were involved in some research & development process for New Moon’s Inner Radiance Collagen Drink last year.

We were given a skin analysis and a few cups of different flavoured collagen drink to taste test. At the end of our tasting, we got to pick our favourite flavour and was also given 1 month supply of collagen drink to try and see if there’s any improvement to our skin.

A month later, we had our after skin analysis and also got to choose the packaging design for the New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink!

Here are my results:

Before                        After 1 month
Elasticity 36               Elasticity 36

Collagen 25             Collagen 51

Moisture 41               Moisture 51

As seen, my Collagen level increased more than 50%. My skin did brighten up and also my pores seems smaller around the nose (not too sure if it’s the collagen drink though).

Moisture wise, I have always made sure my face is not dehydrated as dehydration leads to flaky skin, oily face and more pimples!  Applying moisturiser daily does maintain the skin moisture. As for those who hates the feeling of having a layer of moisturiser on top your face. A bottle of New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink helps to boost skin hydration as well!

My skin Elasticity remained the same throughout my one month trial. Perhaps the elasticity of my face needs  a longer time to see improvements. However, everyone has benefitted differently from the collagen drink. For me, my collagen increases the most. While a fellow blogger Ju Ann’s Elasticity went from 15 to a whooping 41 and another fellow blogger Claire’s Moisture level went from 23 to 57!!

I used to think, why bother spending so much on beauty health products, I’m still young and my face seems alright. A few years down the road and I started to notice my face more. Large Pores, Pigmentations, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dull skin and pimples! All on my face.. Bamb! I’m anxious, insecure and became very conscious about my look.

I did try other collagen products previously and they work pretty fine for me. It’s just that I really hate that fishy AND milky taste. The combination is just so wrong and also it was in powder form so after a few days of ‘making’ it. I was just lazy to go thru all that hassle. Lastly, it’s not very cheap and doesn’t have anti aging/whitening properties. Who doesn’t want a better product right?

I’m only 22 and I have wrinkles? Gosh. My dark circles and eye bags are inherited so that couldn’t be saved unless I go for regular laser treatments which I obviously can’t afford. Oh well. Got to save those that can be saved then.

So what makes New Moon Inner Radiance Collagen Drink so different from other Collagen Products in the Market?

1. It’s ready to drink straight from the bottle, chilled or at room temp.

2. It has one of the highest collagen content at 13,000mg!

3. It promotes whitening with Glutathione.

4. Has Anti Aging properties from Maqui Berries (firms, renew and brightens)

5. Tropical Fruits taste, no fishy smell!

6. Formulated, Manufactured and Packed in Japan

7. Certified radiation free!

Glutathione is naturally presented and needed by the body. It should be present in each and every cell in the body. It plays a vital role in detoxifying our cells, removing heavy metals, toxins and free radicals. All of which can damage our cells and significantly damage the quality of our cells, including skin cells. Glutathione can help to improve the health of every cell in the body, particularly apparent in the skin, hair and nails. Giving people a radiant glow which is caused by healthy cells and reduced toxicity in the body. Age spots can also be minimized and prevented by enhancing Glutathione levels in the body.

Maqui Berry has the highest anti-oxidant properties based on ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity is a method of measuring antioxidant capacities in biological samples in vitro) value.

“Antioxidant compounds, such as the anthocyanins found in fresh maqui berries and maqui powder made from the dried berries, help protect your body from the toxic effects of free radicals, unstable atoms that are generated by things like cigarette smoke and pollution. Free radicals can cause DNA damage that can lead to age-related diseases and health problems.”

Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment at Headline Hairdressing

I tried bleaching my hair on my own using cheap hair bleach bought online which ends up causing my hair to be crispy and super fizzy.

During my first visit to Headlines hair dressing. Jerry my hair stylist, wanted to fix my hair thru Mucota Dyna Argon Oil Hair Treatment.

However, I wanted to get my hair dyed for the new year. So this second visit, I’m back to give my hair some pampering!

What is Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment?

dyna argan oil treatment

Originating from Japan, Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Hair Treatment helps to improve fizzy hair situations. Leaving hair soft, light and naturally straight.

-There’s 100% no formaldehyde, a cancer causing substance commonly found in most hair straighteners.

-It is also Ammonia free & completely safe for pregnant mummies to be!

-It is made mainly from Argan Oil, Omega-3, Omega-6, Jojoba, Castor, Honey, Shea Butter & Collagen.

Benefits of Argan Oil is known throughout history!
It so rich and nourishing that it treats anything from skin infections to beauty regimes.
argan oil

“ One of the main reasons that argan oil is so healing, is that it is rich with vitamin A and vitamin E. However, argan oil is also packed with anti-oxidants, Omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. Research shows that when applied to skin, it eases inflammation while moisturizing the skin.

When applied externally, trocopherol from the vitamin E, helps to boost cell production while promoting healthy skin and hair. This is why cosmetic companies are including it in their high-end anti-aging, hair, and skin care products.”

Benefits of Jojoba & Castor Oil
-increase hair cell growth
– deeply conditions and moisturises like argan oil
-makes hair look fuller and shinier

No doubt my hair needs the treatment real bad.

here’s a before picture of my hair

before2

Look at my ends
before ends

Super frizzy, crispy ends, split ends, curls from clipping my hair most of the time.
I swear I did not purposely make my hair look so crappy. It was like this naturally, that’s why I clipped my hair most of the time and also because Jo tends to pull my hair when he’s younger so it sort of became a habit for me.

The whole treatment took about 3hours for me on a weekday though.

There’s basically 3 main parts of the treatment:

1st part
A hair wash to remove all the excess oil excreted & to apply the step 1 Dyna cream.
Leave it on for 30mins.

2nd part
Wash and blow
after, using a flat iron to seal the nourishment from the treatment cream deep into the cuticles.

3rd part
Apply after treatment cream, leave it on for another 20mins to further moisturise the hair.

Wash and blow

Another final round of flat ironing.

There you have it, a smooth, super light and naturally straight yet not too flat hair.

after2

It has been slightly over 2 weeks since I had this treatment & my hair is still soft, tangle-free! Best of all, I didn’t even bother to blow dry/ comb my hair all the time!

after3

I honestly highly recommend this Mucota Dyna Argan Oil Treatment.
It’s good to pamper your hair once in awhile.

For those who wishes to try this treatment after all that reading, Great News for you!

Domino’s all new Golden Chicken Tenders

Ah super late back-blog..

I’ve been super occupied with my son. He just started school and have yet to adapt. Now both Josaeus and I have separation anxiety!! :'(

So back to topic.
I was invited by my babe Jerlinda for another round of Domino’s Food Tasting event last month.

DOMINO’S GOLDEN CHICKEN
Deliciously baked chicken tenders covered in different sauces and cheese!

These Golden Chicken Tenders are new on the menu!

4 different flavors to choose from:

Golden Mexican Chicken
Oven baked spicy chicken tenders covered in salsa sauce,pineapples,green capsicums,olives and cherry tomatoes

Golden Mediterranean Chicken
Oven baked chicken tenders covered in Napolitana sauce,cherry tomatoes, olives and feta cheese

Golden Outback Chicken
Oven baked chicken tenders covered in BBQ sauce, olives, green and red capsicums

Golden Italian Chicken
Oven baked spicy chicken tenders covered in Pesto sauce,pineapples,tomatoes and mozzarella cheese

‘I personally prefer the outback chicken tenders as i love BBQ sauces and also capsicum. I don’t usually take olive BUT I love domino’s olive!’ The chicken tenders are oven baked so it’s healthier and of course less oil. Not over or under baked leaving the chicken tenders “tender” and not too dry.
