OMG, Its been so long since my last post. I know I know my bad. Do forgive me… Workload has been pile out and on weekends I just want to lie down and do absolutely nothing.. You know sometimes we just wanna have ample time to rest and do nothing.. But fret not I am back now and I just cant wait to share with you guys more product that I encountered and tried for the past few weeks… Wait for it.
In this post I am excited to share with you on new brand that just make their way to Watson Malaysia with a collaboration with The Butterfly Project. This product is from Japan and its called PIKA PIKA. When the Watson spoke person was asking the audience what is PIKA PIKA means? I immediately blurred “Pikachu”.. I know right, PIKACHU always says PIKA PIKA and actually, PIKA PIKA means SPARKLING! see see the connection? I know I never thought of that too.
So why this brand are called PIKA PIKA? Well, PIKA PIKA is well known for their Deep Cleansing range that contains natural fruit extract, AHA and BHA to help dissolve dead skin and impurities in clogged pores. Their product also contains mineral and whitening complex to help purify dead skin and absorb excess oil.
So when your skin is clean from all the impurities, hence you would achieve PIKA PIKA skin condition!! Sparkling Skin Condition!! lol
PIKA PIKA brings in 3 types of product at Watson Malaysia:-
1/ Sparkling Bright Fruity Cleansing Liquid 190 ml – RM79
2/ Sparkling Bright Peel Off Mask 80 mg – RM49
3/ Sparkling Bright Hot & Cold Cleansing Gel 35g – RM39
At the event, we were challenged for “No Mirror Makeup Challenged” and using only “Waterproof” type makeup. This is to defeat PIKA PIKA cleansing liquid that is claimed to be able to remove all types of makeup including waterproof effortlessly.
As a makeup junkie myself that has been wearing makeup 2/3 of my age, trust me, applying makeup with no mirror is totally a challenge. I cant event draw my eyeliner straight!!! I totally salute those of you that can put their makeup effortlessly without mirror and still rock your look!!!
With our horribly makeup on, we got the chance to try out all their three products starts with the Sparkling Bright Fruity Cleansing Liquid. This product contains natural fruit extract, AHA and BHA. This product would helps to dissolve dead skin and impurities in clogged pores. This product also makes the makeup to be removed easily in the shower.
At the event, we were given a bowl of water. After wet the face a bit with water, pressed three pumps of the product on the palm and lather and spread them all the over the face. To my surprise, all the makeup on my face just sweep off like magic. This product has very strong fruity scent which I am not that fan off. Whilst lathering the product all over my face I accidentally tasted the product and it tasted bitter. Do not eat it guys.. not nice..
Next product that we tried was Sparkling Bright Hot & Cool Cleansing Gel. The thermal effect would helps to enlarge pores for removing blackheads and dirt. The menthol helps to soothe the skin and shrink pores. This product would helps to purify dead skin and absorbs excess oil. This product has double function: cleansing + repairing.
After the cleansing, we squeezed approximately 50 cents size and apply it to the T zone area. First applied it, I felt a bit of warm sensation on my skin. Apparently, this warm sensation was due to the product was activated to cleansed the pores and tighten it. Once the area becomes cooler, it is a sign that the pores has tighten and to rinse the residue. This product has a bit of rosy scent. This product reminds me a lot of NUXE Rose Micellar cleansing water.
Next product is the Sparkling Bright Peel Off Mask. This product helps to purify dead skin and absorbs excess oil. This product contains ARBUTIN to helps inhibit dark spots and freckles and prevent skin aging. Besides, this product would revive the dull skin in such a short period of time.
This product is made of white clay and it smell nice too. Due to the limitation of time, we just applied this product at the back of hand and wait until it totally dry before we are able to peel it off and rinse out the remaining residue. I noticed right away the condition of the back of my hand, it is more smooth and a bit brighten as compared to the other hand.
I always enjoy any cleanser that has double cleansing ability that is able to remove my makeup instantly. So I do enjoy the Sparkling Bright Fruity Cleansing Liquid. However, I noticed that this product caused bit of dryness to my skin after the cleansing especially at my cheek and forehead area (I have a combination skin). Besides that the strong fruity scent is not really my cup of tea. Hence, if you are not a fan of fruity scent, this product might not for you.
As for the price point, I would say this range is at medium range. The most expensive from this range is the liquid cleanser itself i.e RM79 but you will get 190ml amount of product. We each were given a bottle of this product to try at home. I used this product almost everyday especially on the day I have a heavy makeup on and I do agree that this product removed all my makeup effortlessly.
Before we head back home, we were given a special treat from the host, at Forêt Blanc with their varieties of house dessert specialty and their signature Unicorn dessert. I actually more of a Mermaid team but who can resist such a cute Unicorn ice-cream. I was one of the happy and excited Butterfly there. LOL…
