DR.WU Clinical Skincare @ The Top 5 Must-Buy Products

You probably heard of DR.WU, a clinical skincare brand from Taiwan.
I heard about this brand for years, but never had a chance to understand more about it; like the brand historical starting in their lines of products, what are their specialize in, and what are their targets.
Indeed, this brand reminds my Taipei trip because it's one of the popular clinical skincare brand in Taiwan.
You can see there are many big drugstores in Taiwan such as Watsons, Sasa, and Cosmed carry this brand under their skincare range.
It was a great opportunity that I was invited to attend the launching event with DR.WU to get more insight into this brand.
If you want to know more about DR.WU, read on and I hope this post helps you! :)



DR.WU is the first brand to bring the concept of "Micro-Surgery", and also the leading medical skincare brand in Taiwan.
All it's clinical skincare products focus to create perfect skin with doctor's prescription.
The brand has over 1200 sales points in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar, United Kingdom, Canada and United States.
In 2014, DR.WU started E-Commerce sales channel in China, received investment from L Capital Asia of LVMH Group, and also went public listed on Emerging Stock Market.



DR.WU, was founded in 2003 by the renowned dermatologist Dr. Ying Chin Wu, along with his eldest son, Eric Wu.
This Father of Cosmetic Medicine has over 40 years of vast clinical experiences and extensive research on skin structure, and the brand mission is to bring non-surgical solutions in enhancing one's beauty and wellness.
By using DR.WU's technologically-advanced skincare line of high potency products for the sensitive skin, customers can take care of their skin just like having a doctor perform medical treatments at home.

Anyway, here are the best 5 products you need from DR.WU!

This best seller product is recommended by Taiwan celebrities such as Hannah Quilivan, Barbie Hsu, and Anni Yi.
It has sold more than a million bottles and still the top hydrating serum in the market.



#2 Intensive Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid 18%
DL-Mandelic Acid 18% has the advantage in chemical peeling procedures to refine skin texture, reduce fine lines, and improve skin elasticity.
This serum has sold every 15 seconds in Taiwan!



#3 Ultimate Hydrating Mask with Hyaluronic Acid
With the patented Micro-Inject Mask Technology, this mask delivers hydrating active ingredients to skin effectively.
Also, the 13K amount of hydrating serum on each mask can boost moisture immediately, and help the skin stay hydrated all day.



#4 Whitening Spot Treatment with Vitamin C+
In order to have an even skin tone with brightening and repairing effects, the exclusive essence VC-Laseryl helps to target existing dark spots and hyper-pigmentation, and also reduces pre-existing melanin by suppressing melanin synthesis.



#5 Intensive Repair Serum with Squalane
This repair serum is highly recommended by Taiwan celebrity Barbie Hsu in her book "The Beauty Queen".
The upgraded version contains high concentration of plant-derived Squalane; the unique oil-based formula helps repair and replenish skin as well as effectively reduces multiple signs of aging such as dryness, fine lines, wrinkles, loss of electricity.
I know about squalane through a Japanaese skincare brand and as far as I know this ingredient is well known for a smoother, and more radiant skin. :)



The product lines that developed under DR.WU contain high grade actives, high concentration, high efficiency, no additives, and no alcohol.
Without doubts, DR.WU products are of uncompromising quality and suitable for even the most sensitive skin!



Well, the new highlighted product development from DR.WU is the Daily Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid and Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid 18%.
The key ingredient of these serums are extracted from bitter almonds, a mild and multi functional alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) with high molecular weight.
The research proves that mild Mandelic Acid is the best choice for skin renewal treatments at home since it has high lipophilic properties and low potential for irritation.

Daily Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid @ RM109, is suitable for dry, sensitive skin.
With the breakthrough "Three Acids in Golden Ratio", a gentle formula combining Three Acids in the perfect 5:2:1 Golden Ratio of Mandelic Acid, Salicylic Acid and Pyruvic Acid penetrates deeper and faster for immediate skin regeneration.
With just one simple step, you are able to eliminate skin troubles such as:
✔ Eliminating acne and blackheads
✔ Enlarged and tough dullness
✔ Restore flawless and smooth skin.

Renewal Serum with Mandelic Acid 18% @ RM149, is designed for normal, combination or oily skin.
This intensive renewal serum is the top-seller of DR.WU, which contains 18% Mandelic Acid to penetrate the deepest layers of skin, and give the best 5 major affects:
✔ Cell metabolism
✔ Pore cleansing
✔ Blackhead removal
✔ Whitening & brightening
✔ Anti-wrinkle lifting & tightening



A special good tip from DR.WU for you!
In order to maintain a clear and flawless complexion, it's important to have basic cleansing with a gentle renewal skincare to remove dead and old cells while improving cell metabolism.
If not, the accumulation of old and dead skin cells on our skin not only makes us look dull, it also gives us acne and blackhead problems.
No matter how much you apply the skincare products or how good the products are, the absorption will not be effective as well.
Besides, whether you have dry skin or oily skin, hydration is the key towards a healthy skin, regardless of the skin type. 
For example, oily skin is caused by the imbalance of oil and moisture, with externally skin is oily but dry inside; hence it is a must to use moisturizer to keep it balanced! 


The range of DR.WU's products are sold at selected Watsons store and Watsons online at www.watsons.com,my.

TOP’s ‘Pass It On’ Community Campaign Exceed Expectations!

How do you get rid of the clothes that you don't want or don't need any longer?
I usually donate them, or give them to someone else.
I think whatever you do, it is better than throwing them into the trash.
Give yourself a big applause if you are voluntarily to give away because giving to those who need or have less is not only benefited to the communities, it's also environmentally friendly as well.
Just like how the Top's "Pass It On" Community Campaign used their breakthrough technology to revive, refresh, and renew clothes which brought a bigger issue of supporting and empowering communities!





In March, TOP, the No. 1 detergent brand in Malaysia, introduced the TOP "Pass It On" community campaign, with the mission of collecting 2,000 pre-loved and gently used clothing items to be micro-cleaned before gifted them to 30 different Malaysian community organizations.
It's proud to say that "Pass It On" campaign has been overwhelmingly positive and exceeded expectations from the communities!





The campaign started from 7th March till 18th May 2017 in the Klang Valley, Kuala Terengganu, Penang, Johor, Sarawak, and Sabah.
It is believed to be the biggest and successful activity in Malaysia, which involved thousands of pre-loved clothes collected from the nationwide, sorted, laundered professionally with TOP Micro-Clean Tech detergent, then finally packed each items before distributed by the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development to those who can benefit from them.





It is surprising that the TOP "Pass It On" Campaign has a collection of 5,046 quality pre-loved clothes throughout the campaign activity.
The Minister of Women, Family & Community Development, Dato' Sri Rohani Abdul Karim officiated the grand finale of the campaign which included the handover of some of these "micro cleaned"clothing items to representatives from 5 different Klang Valley community organizations at Mydin Mall USJ.
YB Dato' Sri explained that this is the type of private-public-people campaign that the Ministry of Women, Family and Community Development wants to achieve by helping more people, while building awareness among the public that there is much that they can contribute that is of benefit.



TOP, is the Number 1 detergent brand Malaysia.
The brand is famous with it's Anti-Malodour expert, and now added the new Micro-Clean Tech with Anti-Sebum technology to it's arsenal.
This new technology that all developed by Lion Corporation Japan, helps to remove visible, and invisible stains for hygienically clean living.



The TOP and it's R&D team found out that the cause of invisible stains as sebum, the body oil that is naturally secreted by our bodies.
Sebum also present with sweat, and we produce more of it especially in the hot and humid climates such as Malaysia.
It can be trapped in fibre cores, though it is unseen from the surface.
The trapped sebum molecules are not easy to remove with ordinary detergents; however it can be nutrient source for bacteria and the breakdown of these molecules can result in unpleasant colour.


TOP would like to thanks to all the support and trust from their consumers by trusting TOP's Micro-Clean Tech detergent to renew and refresh their pre-loved clothing before it is gifted to the next user.
Many of the new user of the pre-loved items have shared their happiness at finding that they are almost as good as new, looking, feeling and smelling clean!
Like TOP said: "As always it isn't clean, until it's mirco-clean!"
Check out the TOP Micro-Clean tech with anti-sebum technology at all retailers in Malaysia, or find out more at www.southernlion.com.my.

Jiufen九份 and Shifen十分 @ Let's Go To Taipei

Yeah! Another post for Let's go to Taipei!
This time I will bring you around the Jiufen九份 and Shifen十分!
We spent the whole day at both places by hiring a private driver and car.
It costs us about TWD4500, which is about RM645 for like 9 hours drive.
It sounded pretty reasonable after sharing between 6 of us.
Ya, it's always less expensive if you are traveling in a small group because you have more people to split the costs with.
The driver picked us up at our apartment according to our preference time at 9am, and then sent us back to the final destination we wanted to.
If you do not have any special plans, the driver can advice you some places to go.
But since we all have been to Taipei before, we started our first destination at Jiufen (the driver was actually planned to stop us at Yehliu 野柳),



Say you are ready with us! #yea





The journey took about 1 hour plus from our apartment.
I think we arrived before 11am.
The whole street of Jiufen was jam packed with people, mainly tourists like us.
Not very nice to walk because the weather was quite warm on that day itself too.



People everywhere!
At few points, I was barely walked in a straight line and sometimes I felt like we were on a standstill packed. :(





Jiufen is a place with many incredible Taiwan snacks and food.
Once you get there, you just can't stop eating from one stall to another one.
Our first stop was the famous Taro and Sweet Potato Balls, which located near the beginning of the street.



It's a must try in Jiufen, because the taro balls are full of yam flavour.
The balls were soft, chewy, and it has "QQ" in texture! :)
Oh ya! Not to forget the balls are served with sweet red bean soup too!



Anyone like winter-melon tea?
#lol Believe me not?! The big winter-melon is real one!



My Kay baby!



Food in Jiufen made us happy! :D





Aison bought the Deep Fried Squid.
If you love squid, then you will love it like we do!





I can see grilled mushroom everywhere in Taipei!
This is the Grilled King Mushroom.











Not only eating, and shopping in Jiufen, this is also a great place to take nice and nostalgic photos!
It is easy to find the best easily accessible photo spots at here.
Even a simple background with a vintage folding steel door. #hehe
Anyway, it's very nice to see all these old buildings and houses are good preserved till now. 



Grilled Sea Snails caught our attention!
It was cooked over the charcoals, and served with chili sauce.
The taste is very fresh and sweet, and the texture is very bouncy  too!
Don't forget to give it a try when you are there!



Ah Lan Hakka Glutinous Rice Cake, sells traditional hand-made rice cakes.
There are many fillings available such as salted vegetables, red bean, green bean, and yam.
To be honest, I have no idea how to enjoy these kind of rice cakes, because the taste is sooooo strange for me.



My Stella baby!



Aison wanna try his luck in Taipei.
He was lucky because he won one packed juice drink! #happykid
Well, I guess it's better than nothing; Stella tried her luck 2 times, and she didn't win anything! #lol





Jiufen is located at the mountain area.
It's worth to have a stop after a long walk to enjoy the natural view and fresh air.
We popped into Jiufen Teahouse 九份茶坊, which is the first tea house established in Jiufen.
The indoor interior is covered with wooden antique furniture, as well as different types of teapots and ceramics.







We enjoyed our time at the outdoor tea house with great chatting and laughing.
I remember we ended up chatting without a pause and stayed there for almost 2 hours. #haha
The most interesting topic was "where should we go next"!



The tea house has a minimum spending requirement, so we got two different types of tea.
I can't remember the name of the tea we ordered, obviously I am not the one who made the decision. #lol
Though it is slightly expensive, it's worth with the tea quality and atmosphere.
The waitress demonstrated the tea making for us, and also explained to us the use of every tools and also where the tea leaves itself.



Macam Yes! #haha



#lol #lol This shows that every girls have a different way of posing. 
 

Fresh guava juice, do you like it?! :)



Hey Genius!
That's my pineapple, hey!
 



We ended the Jiufen Old Street at another entrance.
I think it's good for us that we didn't start our journey at here, because look at the long staircase behind me!; I think this is much challenging and required more steps to climb.



From the entrance we came out, we took a short walk from the mountains and houses that built along the mountain side to meet our driver.
Though it was quite a long, it was a lovely walk for us to enjoy the quietness with the natural beauty.



Here comes the end of Jiufen trip.
I have to say we all enjoyed Jiufen a lot, especially the local Taiwanese food along the whole narrow street.
Though the streets are not easy to walk with the crowds, and also under the hot weather, it was still great memories and experiences in our trip.
Other than that, the natural view of scenery and lively environment in this attraction are also the best to enjoy.
I am sure I will come back again!





We stopped by at the Houtong Cat Village 猴硐貓村, since the village is along our way to Shifen十分.
It said that there are many cats left in here, but unfortunately we didn't see that many when we were there.
If not mistaken, we only met less than 5 cats at the entire village.
Anyway, I have a phobia of cats, so less cats are definitely BEST for me; but if you are a cat lover, I am afraid you might feel disappointed after that.
I would suggest to spend more time at either Jiufen or Shifen rather than this Cat Village.





Jingan Suspension Brdge 静安桥 is one of the unique feature before we walked to the Shifen Waterfall 十分大瀑布
The bridge is not very long but it is long enough for me because I have minor acrophobia.





To get to the Shifen Waterfall, you need to prepare some walking exercises as the whole journey needs to walk through some natural views, peaceful woods, and hilly terrains.
So eat more and burn more calories after that! #haha



Lemon Aiyu Jelly 爱玉冰 is my most favourite drink! #slurpslurp



Also the finger food Grilled Sausage too! #yumyumyum



The Shifen Waterfall itself is beautiful.
The entry is free of charge, but there were too many tourist along the fenced edge of the waterfall.
People everywhere again!



It's not easy to squeeze yourself to get a proper picture with the waterfall.
Kay tried few times, and I think this is the best shot after all! #thankyoukay



So we got ourself a welfie instead. #hehe



The waterfall has a closing time at 530pm, so we actually didn't really spend a lot of time in front of the waterfall.
Anyway, we ended the Shifen Waterfall trip with our happy welfie face! #welfieface







I wanted to visit Shifen Old Street 十分老街 ever since I knew about this attraction from the social postings.
The place sounds great, especially you can make your wishes and release the wishes to the sky.
I think I just enjoy making wishes, though it might not come true lol. #haha



Sky lanterns come in different colours and each colour represents different meaning and wishes.
For example, red for health, purple for education, yellow for health, and green for success.
The paper lantern is too big for one person, unless you have many wishes you want to make.
The 6 of us shared 2 lanterns together.







Women's wishes VS Men's wishes!
Wishes from men are really funny if you understand what they mean. #rofl 



The shop not only sell you the sky lanterns, they also will help you to take pictures while you lift up and release the lantern.
They are very professional as they guide you a step-by-step to assist your posing.
Don't worry that you will miss out any memories, because the photographer will shoot you with different posing with the lantern.





好朋友一起放天灯,愿望一定会成真! #好耶



Bring all my wishes to heaven and pray my wishes come true!
Becareful when you release the lantern to the sky, because the train will come to you at anytime. :p



Best friend?
Nah! We are the best bestieeeeee! :)



I enjoyed here very much, and I think this is the best highlight of the trip.
The atmosphere was so happy, and the most excited moment is to see the colourful lanterns slowly fly up to the sky.
I was completely a happy kid with big laugh while enjoying every moments there!



That's all about our trip in Jiufen and Shifen.
Looking back all the pictures make me smile and remind me all our happy good times together.
Hope you all enjoyed reading this long post, and thanks for finish it till end! #appreciateit
