Advert: Introducing Maxbeauty & LA FAÔN Samples Review

Ohai~! (●⌒∇⌒●/) In this post, I'll be introducing Maxbeauty_ a multi-national one-stop beauty retailer founded in Hong Kong in 2011 and is now operating in Malaysia.


This beauty retailer is offering a mix of international and exclusive brands to cater for BOTH men and women. The products range from makeup, fragrances, body, skin and hair care.

Here's the list of brands available in Maxbeauty at the moment:


Maxbeauty carries a number of top Korean brands so if you're a fan of Korean beauty products or cosmetics, good for you!

Personally, I've been dying to try Ciracle's Vitamin Source C-20 that is rated the #1 Top Seller in Korea with 25 000 bottles sold every day in Korea!! I first heard of them from sometime last year and had my eyes set on it. I'm glad they're now available in Malaysia♡


By the way, I happen to receive some samples of LA FAÔN and Avenue of Beauty so I'm just going to do a quick review on all the LA FAÔN samples in this post. I tested them out yesterday.

Here's one brand that's designed with love for every woman who yearns for eternal youth.

These days its not impossible to want to look 25-30 at 55(my newfound my life goal LOL). It all comes down to putting extra efforts in your daily skin care routine. For this, LA FAÔN wants to make skin care fun, enjoyable and most importantly, effective.

With that, the LA FAÔN range is made from the finest ingredients to enhance effectiveness. LA FAÔN created the exclusive formula called the ECODEW that works as a highly effective moisturizer, anti-wrinkle, comfort and repair, renew and activate treatments. This is to target ALL kinds of skin aging problem.

Besides that, the range also include 4 key ingredients:


Now let's take a look at the products it has to offer~! (ps, I did not include the list of ingredients and their different actions on the skin in this post 'cuz I'm only doing a run through on the products. I do cover their general benefits though.)

STEP 1: Dramatic Face Cleanser

Dramatic Face Cleanser

First up, LA FAÔN Dramatic Cleanser that is formulated so that it's suitable even for the most sensitive skin. The cleanser helps to remove old cells to bring back healthier and firmer skin.



I find the cleanser consistency is that of a smooth satin-like cream. It's feels soft and gentle on the skin and has a sweet odor that isn't overpowering.

STEP 2: Potent Radiant Emulsion

Potent Radiant Emulsion

I then proceed with this Potent Radiant Emulsion that claims to accelerate the skin's natural renewing process. This toner works by:

 ◊ Waking up & clarifies dull, tired and stressed complexion

◊ Chasing away shadows and captures light to give skin a bright, radiant glow


Like many other toner, it's appearance is that of a clear liquid with a mild sweet scent.

STEP 3: Instant Lifting Serum

Instant Lifting Serum

I continue by patting the Instant Lifting Serum onto my face. This serum targets to bring back skin's natural moisture besides

◊  minimizing the appearance of wrinkles 

◊ accelerates skin's natural renewal process


The serum is a yellowish translucent liquid that feels slightly sticky when applied. It didn't take long to be absorbed into the skin.

STEP 4: Vitalizing Shaping Cream

Vitalizing Shaping Cream

The LA FAÔN shaping cream works by minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. It is designed to

◊ Empower to replenish itself to take time off your face

◊ Gives a more radiant, even supple, youthful looking skin


The cream comes in a thick but light texture that absorbs fast into the skin.

Somehow, I find both the Instant Lifting Serum and Vitalizing Shaping Cream has a peculiar scent that I didn't like about them. (And yes, ALL the product from LA FAÔN range are scented.)

STEP 5: BB Base Blemish Balm Cream

BB Base Blemish Balm Cream

Lastly, I applied the BB Cream on my face and neck. This BB cream promises to give a flawless, long-lasting and perfect complexion to the skin by

◊ Visibly blurs line, wrinkles and imperfections while skin feels completely bare

◊ Triple protection against direct sunlight, free radicals and pollution

◊ Satin finish


Here's something in the LA FAÔN range that I have to rave! Initially, I find that the BB cream lighter than my skin tone and might not suit me but how wrong I was.

After just a little blending in, it brightens up my complexion without making a huge contrast. The result was satin-ish, dolly like and it truly felt 'bare' on the skin_like it wasn't even there!ヾ(@O▽O@)ノ

The cream is light and mildly fragrant. Also, it doesn't have a grey tone_a common problem I find among Korean brand BB Creams. On the down side, the coverage goes as far as to even out skin tone and minimizing pores. It doesn't do much for covering up pimples or redness caused by them. Still, it's my favorite item in the range.

Here's a photo taken after the entire LA FAÔN routine (◡‿◡✿)


Just realize my pendant got tangled up... (>A<'') Btw, just so you know, I retouched my photo to get rid of some redness and pimples itselflah. My skin's not perfect. (How I wish tho~!)
