The New Improved R.N.A. Power by SK-II

Being avid fan of SK-II I have tried their most popular moisturiser for the longest time.
However at the time I started realising and religiously using their range of anti-aging line, it was starting from their Signature range.

Then couple of years down they upgraded to Stempower. I remember receiving this range back in 2013 and was loving the new improved formula. Read review here.

In 2015, they yet again launched a new formula for this range and it is called the R.N.A. Power. I was a little sceptical, being a creature of habit, I don't often welcome changes, especially with skincare products that I have used and liked.

SK-II R.N.A. Power

When I received a lovely box of the latest R.N.A. Power and R.N.A Power Essence from SK-II, I was both a little anxious and excited.

I decided to try it out immediately.

and WOW was I wowed.

My first impression was the R.N.A. Power has oilier texture than both the Stempower and the Signature, which I didn't mind since I do use face oil. The cream was absorbed fairly fast and it seemed to 'set' on my skin.

After 10 minutes, my face has never felt smoother! Like a moisturising protection layer has literally set on top of my skin. The essence has a similar protection layer effect but compare between skins with just the moisturiser and the essence, I could feel the essence provides a thinner layer. Both products give off a hint of refreshing green tea scent.

Verdict: Very moisturising. Amazing after-effect result. I feel their anti-aging product is, finally, really suited to age range 30 and above. Not a fan of green tea scent but the fragrance was mild so it didn't bother me. Overall, I'm impressed.

Good job SK-II.

Paired the moisturiser with the SK-II R.N.A. Power Essence to improve texture of skin and reduces visibility of pores.

Minimalist Watches - ZOOM

Zoom minimalist watch
Pure 7140 by ZOOM

I wasn't specifically looking for a watch but I was adopting a new style in fashion and this watch came at the right time.

I was introduced to the new range of ZOOM watches. A watch brand from Stockholm, Sweden - the capital of minimalism (in my opinion).

ZOOM concept portrays the urban style and living attitude. Each design comes with a story and a concept. For example on my favourite watch Pure 7140 (as shown in photo above), quoted from the booklet:

" ...the whole timepiece was formed by non symmetrical figures, however, through the designers' brilliant placement, Pure 7140 presents a balanced visual look. The features are two different sizes small eyes on the up and down, one's for 24 hours while the other's for seconds. The bigger one on the bottom suitably balances the look on the dial. And dedicated lines present indxes and outline for small eyes, wish to show a sense of purity. What else, the place for crown was moved into 2 o'clock and the case was designed by shrinking way to reduce the thick feel. "

The other interesting piece is the Muse 7100 (as shown below) where the idea is to change the way one reads time. The multi-function quartz movement on this watch creates a different coniguration of hands, with the hour, minute and second hands separately sown on the dial. With hour hand (showing 24 hours) at the top, minute hand in the main middle, and second hand at the bottom.

Price range for each piece is RM600-1000 inclusive of GST. And each design comes in single or multiple colors.

Zoom watches are available in all Time Galarie outlets in Malaysia.

Is minimalist style your thing? Which is your favourite design?
