After Calendula Herbal Extract Toner won number 4 of 2013 customer favorites among ten Kiehl’s fabulous products, Kiehl’s launches another seriously good Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash this year. Carry on the benefit of calendula flower power, Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash is paraben-free, and very gentle to skin.

 queenie_chamber_kiehl's_calendula_02A

After knowing goodness of calendula flower extract, Kiehl’s chemists have relied the power of selected ingredients to balance their highly effective yet gentle formulation. If you want to achieve healthy looking skin, begins with respecting the skin barrier. Harsh cleansers such as alkaline based ones can damage the skin barrier. Once there are tiny cracks in the skin barrier, it increases the possibility of irritation and allergies. When cleansing the face, using a soap-free formula is an integral part of maintaining the skin barrier function.

Kiehl’s carefully selected an amino acid-based surfactant to cleanse deeply. When you watch my video (above), you can notice a small amount of  Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash able to form rich foam, cleanse not only dirt and oil, but also makeup like eyeliner and lipcolor away. Calendula Flower Extract able to sooth my skin, and Glycerin, for its ability to pull moisture from the air to replenish and help keep my skin hydrated.

Kiehl’s since 1851, the brand who confident very their high reputation products. They encourage you walk in their store to try their products, ensure you walk out with some complimentary samples. They didn’t invest budget in fancy advertisement, but giving out samples for let customer try. Even a 30 days refundable satisfaction guarantee, if you are seriously not happy with what you have bought. Yet I’m here to tell you YOUR SKIN WOULDN’T LET YOU DO SO, BECAUSE YOUR SKIN ALREADY FALL IN LOVE WITH KIEHL’S.

For some reason women don’t want a child because of running out of shape. Saggy bum and loose tummy are bonus after birth of Lauren I admit. No pain no gain, there ain’t no shortcut other than workout! I believe mom’s life is extremely busy especially for those who need to work. Workout? I bet most of mom will tell me NO TIME! Neither do I, I didn’t hire nanny, I’m a breastfeeding mom, I need to cook sometimes and I need to work too… After whole day schedule I’m totally exhausted. Instead of squeeze out some time (mostly failed), I try to fit some simple workout into my lifestyle.

I found out SQUAT, a simple exercise that able to builds muscles in entire body. In fact, when squat done properly, it’s so intense that they trigger the release of testosterone and human growth hormone in our body. Overall, squat improves both upper and lower body strength. Ladies would love to hear this: Gaining muscles will burn additional fats. Let’s hurray for this! Needless to say, squat tone our backside, abs and entire body!

Hence I squat when brushing my teeth,
I squat when pumping my breast milk (a bit crazy I know),
I squat while waiting for water to boil,
I squat during make up…

Instead of squeeze out some ten minute that rarely happen, why don’t I just fit in the exercise into daily basic routine?Every woman want that shape back after gave birth but it never happen within finger click. It takes time, and I have to say again THERE IS NO SHORTCUT. What people see me QUEENIE YOU NEVER CHANGE AFTER BIRTH OF LAUREN, outsider will never knows how much effort I put on my diet and workout. Ladies, lets work it out together for a better figure! We all can make it.

20140607_123016AI’m wearing Uniqlo Lifewear Camisole and Reebok training trouser for my comfy home workout session.

Why I choose Uniqlo Airism Lifewear?

MY BODY DOESN’T HEAT DURING WORKOUT.
Airism is a revolution technology that releases heat quickly from our body. Garments made with cupro, a kind of breathable fiber that comes from cotton linter. This is totally a breakthrough achievement made in collaboration with Asahi Kasei and Toray.

I DO NOT SMELL THAT BAD AFTER WORKOUT.
Airism is made from special kind of fabric processing ensures the source of odors, such as perspiration, is adsorbed and neutralized. At least I’m not that smelly when I hug Lauren.

I LOVE THE SMOOTH AND SILKY TOUCH
The stretchable fabric pleasant me with its hug. The soft and smooth garment is so comfy till I forgot I’m wearing something sometimes.Oops..
