Recently IN2IT was so kind to send me few products for me to try out since I am a Makeup Junkie!
Don’t worry, my reviews are always honest and unbiased regardless of which company sent me. Please read my Terms&Conditions for more information.
IN2IT is a popular Malaysian drugstore brand so it’s very affordable and the quality is no doubt one of the best as far as drugstore brands are concerned.
I have the twin blush in 02 ALLURE.
The left is dusty pink while the right is a cool pink with blue undertones. These twin blushes are very rich and pigmented so use a light hand when applying. Build it up slowly because it can be too much if you over apply. I use tapping motion by slowing tap on my cheekbones. Swipping will be a bit too much for me.
These blushes has very fine powder so it’s not chalky or anything like that. It won’t look cakey too! And they contain honey and Vitamin E for that extra moisture to your cheeks without melting away.
It also came with a small blusher blush. I do like it because they are very soft and doesn’t feel stiff. It’s a good quality brush so I’ll keep it for touch ups if I need too.
ALLURE has fine shimmers and pearl for a healthy glow.
I wear them for quite sometime and they did not irritate or cause breakouts on my cheeks. My cheeks definitely approved of these twin blushes because I’m proned to breakouts especially on the cheeks and this did not do that.
These blushes are waterproof so they can withstand sweat, rain and excess sebum.
It lasts a long time, like 12 hours or more before I take it off at the end of the day.
IN2IT WATERPROOF TWIN BLUSH IN BIT 02 ALLURE is a great one to have especially for makeup beginners and makeup junkies that just love a great blusher. It’s so affordable as well so I’m going to collect them all as they do have quite a few choices to choose from at Watsons / Guardian.
I highly recommend you to try it, give it a swipe the next time you visit the drugstore!
I received RA8 starter kit to try. The starter kit includes:
☆REFRESHING SKIN CLEANSER
☆RENEWAL SKIN CREME
What you get in this starter kit?
1 x RA8 Refreshing Cleanser (50ml),
1 x RA8 Renewal Skin Crème (15gm),
1 x RA8 Regenerative Serum (5ml).
This RA8 starter kit last me for more than a month and I personally think it’s adequate to test out it’s full potential.
Refreshing Skin Cleanser contains lemon extracts as well as aquamarine extract to brighten and clarify the skin. Lemon extracts contains L-Absorbic acid, which is (also known as Vitamin C). This serves as a remover a dead skin cells which clog pores, leading to acne breakouts. This also encourages the development of new fresh skin cells, not affected by acne. In addition to having exfoliating properties, lemon extract is nature’s best astringent – removing excess oil from skin which decreases future breakouts. Lemon extract is also a natural disinfectant. Bacteria is the cause of acne – which is an infection which uses acne. The natural properties of the lemon extract fight the acne bacteria infection on your skin cells.
Renewal Skin Crème is a lightweight, non greasy renewal cream that acts as a moisturiser. Apply after cleanse and tone. This renewal skin crème slough off the dead skin cells revealing clearer and brighter skin tones. It also has a light refreshing floral scent.
Regeneration Serum is a potent serum that stimulates the regeneration of skin cells to make skin smooth and supple! It contains lemon extracts as well as natural moisturiser like Jojoba oil to seal everything in after you apply. Use this serum alone at night or under RA8 skin renewal creme.
This is the results on my skin after 1 month.
My skin is much brighter and clearer without any problems like irritation or breakouts.
I’m very happy with the results I get after trying out RA8 starter kit skincare. I highly recommend it if you have dull sallow skin and pigmentation problems as it can help to fade my stubborn post acne marks.
RA8 starter kit retails for Rm98 at http://www.ra8.com.my

I got mine from Annie’s Way Malaysia Gallery.
They uses natural herbs extracts to formulate these Hydro Gel Eye and Spot Patches such as these amazing natural extracts:
Carrageenan commonly referred to as Irish Moss, this species of Red Algae grows abundantly along the rocky, Atlantic coasts of North America and Europe. It is made up of many mineral nutrients. Irish Moss serves as a thickening agent, as well as a skin softener. It can be used to treat inflamed tissues.
Konjac Root Powder Contains Natural Anti-Oxidants and Minerals which are Beneficial for our skin. It deeply cleanses skin pores to remove excess oil, Blackheads, Dead Skin Cells and Dirt by gently and effectively exfoliates skin resulting in smoother and softer skin texture. It also nourishes and Hydrates Skin and balances pH Level of skin (which is important in keeping your skin blemish-free!) Given their naturally alkaline pH levels and gentle exfoliating action, the Konjac root powder are very effective in removing the grime and dirt on your skin and smoothing out your skin around the eyes’ texture even without the use of any cleansers, scrubs or exfoliants!
Sodium hyaluronate has a smaller molecular size as HYALURONIC Acid (making it especially penetrative), and is able to hold more water than any other natural substance—up to 1,000 times its weight in water!
Thanks to these to attributes, when applied topically to the skin it can reach deep down into the dermis to combine with, maintain and attract water. It also promotes skin/blood microcirculation and nutrient absorption, and helps maintain normal metabolism. Thanks to its super-sized hydrating properties, sodium hyaluronate will result in smoother, softer skin with decreased wrinkles and an all-around fuller appearance.
I have used up half of KBS HYDRO GEL EYE AND SPOT PATCH and I really love it because I noticed after used, my fine lines are plumped up hence less visible lines can be seen especially when I smile! And it hydrates my dry undereyes like nobody’s business. My eyes are really dry and can be red sometimes due to dryness but KBS HYDRO GEL EYE AND SPOT PATCHES helps to reduce dryness and redness.
KBS HYDRO GEL EYE AND SPOT PATCHES helps to curb undereyes dryness really well. I just have to put it on for 20 minutes at least before I proceed to do my makeup in the mornings.
I can’t say much about what it can do for wrinkles as I don’t have yet so my guess is, it can hydrates and plump up those areas as well.
As for dark circles, KBS HYDRO GEL EYE AND SPOT PATCH didn’t do much because my dark circles are genetics. I have dark circles since I was young and people always say I looked tired when the truth is, I’m not!
KBS HYDRO GEL EYE AND SPOT PATCH are awesome to rehydrate and plump up my dry undereyes. I will definitely repurchase it once I run out because it’s not greasy after used and the leftover essence absorbed quickly into the skin. Most importantly, it didn’t irritate or cause allergic reaction and in fact it helped my eye allergies to subside.
Besides using on your eyes, you can use it on your laugh lines as well so that they are well hydrated and less visible when you talk or smile. Long term usage of KBS HYDRO GEL EYE AND SPOT PATCH can help to diminish, soothe your skin.
KBS HYDRO GEL EYE AND SPOT PATCH retails for Rm129.90 at Annie’s Way Malaysia Gallery.
