Walking into NOVUS Restaurant, where the event is to be held...

I'm so glad that the organisers bothered to put up signs so as to direct Bloggers around

So what's this event about?

GINVERA has recently launched a NEW! Green Tea product range & here's the 2 products you girls need to know abt!

#1 Whitening Marvel Gel (R) & #2 Nude Cover BB Cream (L)

What so special about it?

It's filled with...
Green Tea – Nature’s Beauty Gift

Green Tea extract is 20 times more antioxidant powerful than Vitamin C & provides superior protection from free radical damage and reduces photo-aging from UV rays.

One of the main vitamins found in Green Tea – Vitamin E is also known for its ability to help skin retain moisture and to slow down the aging process.

Also, what I fancy about it is really, the refreshing Smell. It's green-tea scented, not those creamy smell that you usually get from the other products. Upon using, it's not oily as compared to other brands. I really like how it blends in well with my skintone!

We were supposed to try it but we didn't really touch any of them!

So, we were earlybirds & they were nice enough to serve us either Tea / Coffee.

I opted for Tea w Sugar, nice combination...

263078_10150291598353665_706803664_8943594_1168856_n

So for PRODUCT INTRODUCTION: The organiser started her introductory 'presentation' with the different range of Products offered.

These below are the Green Tea WHITENING Series.

261258_10150291599878665_706803664_8943614_4314100_n
Take a closer look at those items!

Anyways, here's the 2 STARS of the day!

264853_10150291600993665_706803664_8943628_2463380_n

What are we to do with them?

Of course, to TEST them out!

SEEING IS BELIEVING.

So how to do so?
I'll show you!

First up, the Aqua Whitening Cream!

It's really less oily with perfect oil control as seen (Look at the blue sheets- the oil control sheet)

259813_10150291600668665_706803664_8943623_4636596_n

We were to do 'Before & After' Effects using a Moisture Test!

254323_10150291600768665_706803664_8943625_7310290_n

After explaining to us what we are supposed to do, she called for the waited to 'SERVE' the products. The way she said it & the literal meaning of 'Serve the Products' made me laugh. Not only me, but the whole place - Everyone was laughing in amusement when the waiter held on to the products, as if they were real food or drinks.

264383_10150291600893665_706803664_8943626_337849_n
Okay, ermmm.. Food for the Skin! SKINFOOD, YESSSA!!!

So here's my results!
The smaller the number, the dryer the skin.

Can you see my before & after results?!! Such a big jump from 22 my dryskin :( ... to 57 after using the Ginvera product (:

246928_10150291601363665_706803664_8943633_3560074_n

Next & Finally, the BB Cream
It blends in really well with skintones, not too particular about it. I remember using a BB Cream once & my face got really white like a geisha. Don't worry about this, it will look as if you didn't put any makeup on. Besides, it's Total Coverage so it's totally convenient.

263018_10150291601693665_706803664_8943639_5811147_n

Here are the things you need to have before testing...

The Moisture Stick (L) & Recording Sheet (R)

254143_10150291601158665_706803664_8943631_3133663_n

#Step 1: Use the Moisture Stick, measure the degree of moisture on your bare skin

264543_10150291601848665_706803664_8943642_1509688_n

#Step 2: Apply the BB Cream

261673_10150291602023665_706803664_8943645_6684589_n

#Step 3: Use the Moisture Stick, measure the degree of moisture on the part of skin that you apply the BB Cream on

#Step 4: Record down the before & after findings!

#Step 5: Do the same steps once more, but using another product from competitor's brand, aka Brand Y.

After you are done then...

In the midst of the noise & food, managed to snap a picture with Pretty Zi Yin!
Such a small world, when she came into the restaurant, she looked at me & sat down next to me saying I was familiar. I was quite stunned initially but after she explained she's from TP I was like Oh okayyy!(: YAY! & she turns out to be Matt's GF. haha!

264458_10150291603913665_706803664_8943679_5942671_n

While the 10 blogger's presentations were going on, food was served. I like how the food came in tiny portions. Good food are meant to be savored in small bites!

263123_10150291603218665_706803664_8943666_3178558_n

Mushroom Crisps
Love the crust of this dish! The mushrooms were fresh but the smell of this whole combination was quite overwhelming! :/ The plants were too fresh!

Dark Chocs Truffles
Nice! BUT too sinful & heaty, so I only took 1!


What a better way to end off the event than taking pics & more pics?!!
252488_10150291608623665_706803664_8943783_3960685_n
