Halls XS Honey-Lemon New Variant Candy

Recently I tried the Halls XS Honey-Lemon candy and fell in love with it. It's Halls XS new variant sugar free candy. It's mini in size and mighty in freshness! Its packaging is small and can fit into my pocket easily. I can carry it in my handbag and bring it everywhere I go.


This small sugar free candy has a unique hard-boiled candy shape. When I put one in my mouth, I can feel the intense cooling sensation with the honey lemon instant freshness taste. The cooling intensity is not too intense, even my daughter loves to eat it too.


Hall XS has 4 flavors:
1.     Mentho-Lyptus (blue color) is the one with the most cooling intensity.
2.     Lime (green color) has the cool lime taste
3.     Watermelon (red color) which is the sweetest among the four variants
4.     Honey Lemon (yellow color) which is my favorite flavor.

You can get yours at 7 Eleven, 99 Speedmart, Tesco, Giant, Aeon, Aeon Big, Mydin, The Store, Petronas, Shell, Petron and BHP. If you haven't tried them, you should get yours soon.

Facial Experience at Beauté Library, MyTown Shopping Centre

A few days ago, I went to Beauté Library at MyTOWN Shopping Centre to enjoy the Beauté Floral Essential Hydrating Enriching Facial Treatment worth RM880 (150minutes). This was my first time I went to MyTOWN Shopping Centre and there were ample parking lots. Beauté Library is located on 2nd floor on the same row as Parkson.



The friendly staffs greeted me the moment I went it. The staff showed me to a consultation room to fill up a form about my skin type, skin care concerns and details about myself such as whether I have any allergies and the number of hours I sleep,....etc. They said I have acne scars and uneven skin tone problems. I also have oil seeds on my face.



The clean and comfortable consultation room.

After our short discussion and the beautician's advice on how to improve my skin, I was asked to change my clothes in another room where the facial treatment would be done. This room was very cozy and comfortable with soft music playing in the background. The room was very hygienic and clean. It made me feel very comfortable and relaxed.


Beauté Floral Essential Hydrating Enriching Treatment  

Step 1      -    Double Cleanse 
Step 2      -    Scrub             
Step 3      -    Steam         
Step 4     -     Light Extraction           
Step 5     -     Ginseng gel + machine           
Step 6     -     Face and shoulder massage           
Step 7     -     Rose mask     

The beautician started by letting me to smell some really nice floral fragrance, then cleansed my face followed by scrub. She told me all their products are from France.


The beautician used steam on my face for about 15 minutes. I almost fell asleep because it was very comfortable.  

Steam on my face for about 15 minutes.

Next, the beautician did some light extraction on my face to get rid of blackheads and acnes. The beautician later applied ginseng gel and used a machine with purple light which had a cold sensation on my face for moisturizing my skin. Even though it was very cold, I felt very comfortable. 


The next step was the face and shoulder massage which was what I needed after a long day's work. She was very experienced and could massage very well. The last step was the rose mask. I was told to close my eyes at all times while I had the rose mask on. This step took about 20 minutes. There was a cool and moisturized feeling on my face while doing this.


After the facial treatment my face felt softer, more moisturized and more radiant . There were no red marks after the extractions. I am satisfied and had a very good experience here because of the friendly and experienced beauticians. The place was clean and hygienic and most importantly the products were very good and from France.

The left photo was taken before my facial treament and the right photo was taken right after my facial treatment. Both photos were taken without any filters. My face looks more moisturized, brighter and cleaner after the Beauté Floral Essential Hydrating Enriching Facial Treatment.
