[Sponsored] Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask
Remember how I've blogged about Amethystory twice before?
Well, well, guess who just launched a new product?

That's right, it's none other than amethystory! [Pretty darn obvious...]

This new product is the...

Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask [SGD $18.90/60g]

The Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask builds upon the natural goodness of premium yogurt with the additional special blend of Amethyst, Tranexamic acid, Hyaluronic acid, Bio Energy Fluid, Ginseng and Olive Oil. Your skin becomes instantly brighter, feels more moisturized and soft. With regular use, a fairer and more even skin tone will give you a natural radiant glow from within.

What's so great about all these ingredients, you say?

  • Amethyst - Enhances skin rejuvenation & cell growth, promotes the synthesis of collagen and efficient detoxification enhancing circulation, promote anti-oxidation and skin cell regeneration. 
  • Tranexamic Acid - Effective in counteracting melanin growth to fight dark spots and lighten complexion 
  • Hyaluronic Acid - Provides intense hydration & retains water in your skin 
  • Bio-Energy Fluid - Contains ample minerals and trace mineral elements to nourish skin 
  • Yogurt - Naturally formed Lactic Acid and enzymes help to hydrate and soothe the skin, equipped with natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, works as a natural moisturizer

The product claims to :
  • Intensively nourishes and rejuvenates skin, for a soft and smooth complexion.
  • Has excellent whitening and brightening of skin, giving a naturally fair and radiant complexion. 
  • Deeply hydrates and locks in moisture, for supple and healthy looking skin.
  • Help to keep skin refreshed and cool.
  • Has a non-greasy formula for easy and deep absorption into skin.

Time for me to put these claims to a test and try it out!
Usage directions are simple. After cleansing, gently massage an adequate amount onto the entire face. Leave the mask on for around 15 -30 minutes to allow the nutrients to be absorbed into the skin. Then rinse off thoroughly.

I used this for a good three days before my butter fingers strucked and I dropped the whole tub on the floor... 
Anyhow, I really liked what it did to my skin! Instantly after rinse, I could see a significant brightening and whitening effect, making my skin look more radiant. My skin felt more supple, proving that the hydrating effect was performing up to standard. The product left my skin feeling smoother after the rinse. While the product was being applied and left on my face, I did not feel much discomfort as it was not greasy. Oh yes, the smell is quite strong but I was fine with that as I actually liked the smell. 

You have to remember to wash the mask off after putting it on for 15-30 minutes as this is not a leave on and go to sleep mask!
I will rate this product an 8.5/10, given the economical price and ability to perform up to all the claims well. My favourite definitely has to be the fact that my skin looked so much more radiant after doing the mask!

Give your face a well deserved treat, literally. The Amethystory Mineral Yogurt Mask can be found in Guardian, Watsons and all leading supermarkets & pharmacies. Don't forget to "like" Amethystory's facebook page for their latest updates and promotions!


[Sponsored] Amethystory Beautiful Skin Search 2012
Remember my post about Amethystory when it was first launched about 6 months ago? [I've hyper-linked it so take a read if you don't!]
I've received the same products from Amethystory via TheSampleStore again!

Refresh your memory a little?
First step to clean and beautiful skin is definitely cleansing; use Amethystory
Mineral Bubble Facial Wash [SGD $14.90/160ml]
^ I really like the scent of this bubble wash! I've finished my bottle some time
ago so I am really glad to receive another one! It cleans well without stripping
my skin of it's moisture; definitely recommend this! The pump mechanism 
dispenses the product in the form of foam; foam can better cleanse your face
as it is able to penetrate deeper into your skin!

After cleansing, dry your face and prepare to exfoliate with the Amethystory
Mineral Gel [SGD $24.90/150ml]. 
^ I'm very lazy when it comes to exfoliating my skin [*hides in shame*]
I'm about 4/5 done with the previous bottle they sent me so this new bottle
arrived at the right time too! I like it when I see all the dead skin gathering
[albeit gross but...] and see how my skin glow after rinsing my face with water!
Definitely recommend this as it exfoliates well; do take note that the product
is quite runny so dispense with care!

Note: I know it can be quite addictive to rub those little dead skin off and 
feel exceptionally clean, but try to do this just twice a week; we don't want 
to over exfoliate! Just exfoliate at the right intervals to ensure better 
absorption of our skincare products.

Next, apply some Mineral Aqua Whitening Enhancer [SGD $19.90/150ml]
^ You will be surprised how long a bottle last you! I know we are supposed to
take care of our neck area too but like I said, lazy girl here, therefore I only
apply it on my face and after 6 months, I still have over half a bottle left!
[That's why the new bottle in the picture is still unopened] Of course, I haven't
been faithfully applying it twice daily too, but still, I can safely estimate a bottle
will last you at least 3 months! I'm not entirely sure how toners should work
but it does not break me out and it gets absorbed fairly quick [a little over a
minute] so I have no complains for this product.

Now, why am I talking about these products again?
That's because 6 months down from when Amethystory first launched, it is 
now searching for someone to be their "face" of the brand!
That's right, you have the chance of fronting their brand! [Imagine, your face
will be EVERYWHERE!]

As stated above, if you think you have what it takes, send in your particulars

view and 1 full length photo] to
If you think you have a friend with beautiful skin and deserve a shot at this,
you can send in her particulars too!

[Sponsored] Pretty with purple; My Amethystory
So recently, I've been sick.
Pretty bad condition too!
When you are sick, the last thing you will bother about is skincare.
True story, trust me.

I was feeling so stressed about my bad skin after I recovered because I had
fever & migraine so bad for 4 days that I didn't wash my face!
Was just lying on my bed in agony and .... Okay, I'm digressing.

In conclusion, I looked like crap.

So I thought, this is the perfect time to try out the new releases from
Why called Amethystory?
That's because the products in this line all contains Amethyst.
Yes, that's the purple gem we are talking about!

Did you know that Amethyst can:
1. Healing properties [helps improve skin complexion & skin tone]
2. Produces small, detectable magnetic field & emits beneficial far infrared 
radiation and negative ions which promote blood circulation, promote anti
oxidation and rejuvenate skin cell [for smoother & more supple skin]
3. Provide an energizing skin effect [for a more radiant and youthful look]

A new brand in the market but fret not;
Creditability is 101% there as it is under Ginvera!
I was sent 3 products to try by TheSampleStore

1. Amethystory Mineral Bubble Face Wash [SGD $14.90/ 160ml]

2. Amethystory Mineral Aqua Gel [SGD $24.90/ 150ml]

3. Amethystory Mineral Aqua Whitening Enhancer [SGD $19.90/ 150ml]

So here's how bad my skin condition was
^ Dull, dead, breaking out.

Chronological order, shall we?
Step 1, cleanse face with bubble wash!

I love using foam to wash my face!
I know I'm slow but ever since I learnt about the "pump for foam" products,
I got lazy at making my own foam with a foaming net ^^;;

Remove the little plastic stopper

& pump it from the bottle! [I used about 2 pumps]

Slap [no, not literally] it on your face!

Here's how my skin looks after cleansing!
Fresh and clean :3

Visual Easy Rating for Amethystory Mineral Bubble

Product Volume : 160ml per bottle

Product Texture: Foam

Cleansing Power: 8/10 - One of the reasons why I prefer using foam facial 
wash is because they are able to penetrate deeper into our skin, cleaning it 
more thoroughly!

Scent: 7.5/10 - I'm not a huge fan of scented products but the scent for this
is actually quite nice!

Packaging: 8.5/10 - I love how conveniently the foam comes out from the
pump! Still very amazed by the invention of such pumps, kekeke.

After-feel : 8.5/10 - I did not experience any slight tightness, whatsoever
after rinsing my face and drying it. I am guessing the hyaluronic acid inside is
keeping my skin supple and retaining moisture for me :3

Availability: 9/10 - It can be found in Watsons, and I'm sure there's a Watsons
near you somewhere, 'nuff said.

Price: 8/10 - Only SGD $14.90 for a bottle with 160ml
 of product. I will yes it is
considerably pocket friendly!

Repurchase: Yes. It is not very expensive, easy to use and not to forget how
it leaves my skin so clean! [Smells good too!]

Overall Rating: 8/10

Step 2, Exfoliate!
I'm gonna be using this darling!

That's right, it's the Mineral Aqua Gel!

Once again, remove the stopper!

& pump it!

Texture was more watery than I expect.

It works freaking well!
I left it on my palm for about 15 seconds before rubbing it and here's what I 
got [be warned....]:

But the watery texture made me think about how am I gonna get that on my face without it rolling around in my palm first, so....
^ Yes, I just pumped it on my face *insert stupid expression here*

But it still works this way okay!
Here's after exfoliating!

Visual Easy Rating for Amethystory Mineral Aqua Gel:

Product Volume : 150ml per bottle

Product Texture: Watery, Gel-like

Exfoliating Power: 8.5/10 - From the above pictures, you can see how much
dead skin it collected! *hides in shame* I thought that the texture of product
will mean that it is less efficient but thankfully it did not!

Scent: 0/10 - Don't get my rating wrong! This simply means that there is 
no smell so I can't give any rating as to whether I liked it or not! 

Packaging: 8/10 - Sleek and slim, easy to hold! Not to mention it is purple in
colour, I like it!

After-feel : 8.5/10 - I did not experience discomfort nor did I break out. Skin
felt really smooth after exfoliation!

Availability: 9/10 - It can be found in Watsons, and I'm sure there's a Watsons
near you somewhere, 'nuff said.

Price: 7/10 - While the price tag of SGD $24.90 does not sound very 
expensive [considering how you only exfoliate about 3 - 4 times a week, thus
a bottle should last pretty darn long]. I did take into consideration of other
similar products in the market which cost slightly lesser, thus the rating. This
doesn't mean it is not worth or expensive yo!

Repurchase: Maybe. It is not very expensive, a bottle can last me pretty long
so I can't be sure if during this period of time I will not be tempted to try
another brand/ any new launches that might come up!

Overall Rating: 8/10

Finally, here comes the Mineral Aqua Whitening Enhancer!

This product actually acts like a toner, helps in absorption of your other
skincare products [on top of hydration and whitening]!
Get some product on a cotton pad

About this amount will do~ Then dab it on your face!
[I prefer to dab/pat it on my face, you can use your fingers and do it in
circular motion too, whichever you are more comfortable with (: ]

Finally, here's how my skin look like!

Visual Easy Rating for Amethystory Mineral Bubble

Product Volume : 150ml per bottle

Product Texture: Liquid, slightly tacky

Product Power: 8/10 - Okay firstly, sorry for the weird heading. I didn't
quite know what heading to put for this ^^;; Reason being, it says to
hydrate and enhance the absorption of other skincare products, but it
is used at the "toner" step and acts like one. Tell me how am I supposed to
give a title man! Anyway, when I used this product, my cotton actually turned
a little dirty, so I guess it does work like a toner to a certain extent and with
more dirt out of the way, all other skincare product definitely can be absorbed
with more ease.

Scent: 7/10 - While it smelt similar to the bubble wash from the same range,
it is slightly milder.

Packaging: 7/10 - I thought the amount of product was just right and thus
the packaging managed to remain slim. The only complain I had was that
it was a little hard to get the product out from the little opening onto my

Absorption : 8/10 - The product was absorbed fairly quickly by my skin, much
to my surprise since it felt kinda tacky.

Availability: 9/10 - It can be found in Watsons, and I'm sure there's a Watsons
near you somewhere, 'nuff said.

Price: 8/10 - SGD $19.90 for a bottle with 150ml of product, pretty much 
around the "market price" for drugstore. Affordable so I am not complaining.

Repurchase: Maybe - While I really liked how much more dirt it removed even
after I cleansed my face so well, the tacky feeling is one point that put me
off the idea of repurchasing, very slightly but yes, it does affect me. If it was
less tacky, I will definitely repurchase with no hesitation so if you are not
a person who is too concerned with texture [to be honest, the tacky feeling
is really very very little, I'm just overly OCD about such things...], I will put 2
hands up and tell you to go for it! My odds of repurchasing to not is 80 : 20.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10
