[GIVEAWAY] Claire Organics Body & Skin Care

Having struggles in looking for the right skin care products for your sensitive skin? Claire Organics is a local brand that aims to provide the best, all natural, chemical free and environmental friendly products to their customers and I can assure you that all of their products are handmade with love.  They have a wide variety of body and skin care, ranging from their best-selling soaps to essential oil. Isn't that simply awesome? I have been a user of Claire Organic since last year, tried a couple of their product and was not once disappointed thus far. Thanks to the founder Louise, who is generous enough to let me try out their latest products; the Calming Lavender Face/Body Oil and Inspire Essential Oil Roll-On Perfume.

Calming Lavender Face/Body Oil -- RM56 

This body oil is designed to tame acne-prone skin and to lock the moisture in your skin for all day hydration. It creates a plethora of skin benefits, being a stress reliever, heroic healer as well as treatment for sensitive skin. Packed with powerful stress-relieving properties, it can be used to calm aggravated skin and exhausted mind caused by stress. This makes for an excellent overall skin tonic. Besides, it possess normalizing agents that enhances new cell growth and regeneration in damaged skin and wounds. On the other hand,  Lavender oil's natural soothing and gentle astringent properties is useful in many skin-related conditions such as burns, eczema and psoriasis as it has the ability to reduce inflammation, thereby minimizing breakouts and allow healing to take place. 
Ingredients: Lavender infused Organic Virgin Olive Oil, Avocado Oil, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Lavender Oil.

How to use: Dispense 2-3 pumps per application and gently dab it on your clean face prior to putting on your sunscreen or foundation. For night use, you can apply it before your moisturizer or you can even use it alone. To use in on your body, rub a small amount between your palms and glide it over your body. Pat it onto damp skin for maximum hydration.

Verdict: When I first heard of face/body oil, I was pretty hesitant to even try it and my first reaction was "Oil on my acne-prone skin?" That sounds like a terrible idea and there was absolutely zero chance that I was going to put it on my face. Little did I know that facial oils actually reduce the appearance of fine lines and nourish your skin with intense moisture as they have a locking and protective nature. So when I was given the chance to try out this Lavender Face Oil, I started to add it in into my daily skincare regime be it day or night, and I got to say I am loving it. It can be a great replacement for moisturizing cream and body lotion!

The texture is light and it was not as greasy as I thought. The oil absorbs almost instantly and it does not leave a greasy and shiny finish after application but rather a sheer glow. And ehem we all know, glow is good (; I can feel that my face is more luminous and even after a long day, I don't find my face oily. Apart from the nourishing and ultra-moisturizing beauty benefits, I love how soothing it smells. For my body, I tried applying this body oil on mosquito bites scar that have been irritating me for months, and it works amazeballs! The scar just faded off in a day or two.

P/S: However, face oil may not work the same on all skin types so be sure to read up more and test it beforehand.

Limabelas @ The Intermark, KL

Ohai, I'm back with another fattening food post :D please read on your own risk HEH 

I have never had the chance to try out this highly raved Nyonya Laksa at Limapulo that I have been hearing since forever until they recently opened a sister restaurant, Limabelas at The Intermark last November. Since the other fat half stays nearby, I decided to drag him along for  #kevdafoodadventure. 

Pai Tee (4pcs) --- RM12.00 
We had these for appetizers and it's actually my first time having Pai Tee so, it was something new for me. A thin and crunchy pastry tart shell filled with a mixture of savory and sweet paste as well as thinly sliced vegetables and prawn; yummmmeh!

Nyonya Laksa -- RM11.80
Introducing the award winning (don't play play, I tell you) Nyonya Laksa Lemak that really lives up to its hype *cough* despite looking less attractive than how it was being promoted *cough* I was trying hard to hold my urge to savage it while taking a few shots. This is the ultimate reason why I visited Limabelas; for this bowl of flavoursome goodness topped with shredded chicken, fishcakes, fishballs, fresh cucumbers and half an egg. Took my first big slurp and boy, I got hooked onto it immediately! Yeah, I may be exaggerating a little but it was that damn freaking good! Even typing this now makes me salivates already. I can even remember the taste that lingers...okay. I need to stop right here. And the portion is pretty decent too, perfect for a quick and simple lunch. Totally recommending it! 

Ayam Berempah Set -- RM11.80
Well, you can opt for this aromatic ayam berempah set that comes with white rice, omelette and side of vegetable if you're not a big fan of laksa. The gravy was lip smacking albeit a tad greasy; the chicken on the other hand was really tender and well marinated. Another dish that I would totally recommend!

Telur Cincaluk --- RM15.00 
Something interesting on the menu that caught the other half's attention, since he was craving for it so we decided to give it a try. I was actually expecting hard boiled eggs with cincaluk but it turned out to be a cincaluk omelette *facepalm* Sadly the cincaluk wasn't evenly spread among the omelette, so some pieces tasted extra salty and I personally think it wasn't worth the price. However, this dish has a rather unique tantalizing taste.

A tad too big hearty meal for two and it sure makes my tummy happy!

Cendol --- RM3.50
A meal wouldn't be complete without dessert right? I ordered this toothsome bowl of Cendol, which is made of shaved ice drizzled with fragrant and thick Gula Malacca (yet it did not turn out too sweet) and generous amount of the cendol; well I have to say that it is one of the best I've tried in KL. Definitely a perfect ending to my meal (:

So if you feel like  indulging in good and authentic Nyonya food with reasonable price, you sure know where to head to! I'm definitely going back to try their other dishes and to get my Nyonya Laksa fix some day. You can also visit their main branch at No. 50, Jalan Doraisamy for more instagram-worthy interior, cheaper menu and even the chance to meet the Legendary Uncle John; the founder of Baba Can Cook.

P/S: In case you don't know, Nyonya Laksa are only served on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, (be sure you are there early cause I heard that it sells out fast!) while Mee Siam is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
