Amara Sanctuary of Beauty & Wellness

Amara, located in the heart of the busy Sri Petaling is a beauty haven for women! 
Their beauty therapists are a class above the rest, a haven where your beauty and relaxation needs will be well taken care of.  It has 2 floors and a huge cozy place for all your beauty needs. 

They provide beauty services such as warm oil massage, spa manicure & pedicure, facial, slimming, you name it!


From the moment I opened the doors into Amara, I was delighted at the huge place which was so comfortable and cozy.


The mani pedi place is also huge and it can accommodate a few people at one time.

The chairs were so comfy and everything was hygienic and clean, which is the most important to me.

My nails have been left abandoned for a few months as I did not have the time to care for it.
So, I decided to have my spa manicure and pedicure to beautify my hands and legs.

First of, pampering my hands first:

Scrub and massage. The beauty therapist was experienced and handled my hands with care.

Thereafter, lotion application and heat wrap therapy for the moisture to seep into skin.

Nails time!
Buff the nails for a square shape.

Cuticle pusher.

Cuticle removal.

Polish application.

Decided to be girly and went for pink!

In the meantime, my legs were soaked.

Then scrubbed and massaged.

Callous removal.

Lotion application and heat wrap therapy to moisturise skin.

Cuticle removal.

Polish application.

Finally, the end results:


Beautiful nails!
So pretty, can't stop admiring them hehe

It was so relaxing and I fell asleep at some point during the session especially with the soothing music in the background.
My hands and legs were smooth and moisturised and any dirt surrounding the skin has been scrubbed and cleaned. The beauty therapists were soft and gentle and were not rough. I can tell that the therapists were experienced and it made the session all the more relaxing.

Do take advantage of their August promotion with only RM138 for classic manicure with gel colour, nail art as well as classic pedicure!

Serywn travel kit- for everyone and anyone (plus giveaways!)

Skincare are just so expensive these days!
And sometimes, brands do not have a smaller bottle to sample so we have no choice but to buy the full sized product only to find out later that it's not suitable for our skin ='(
Hundreds and hundreds of bucks are wasted just to try out the products and ended up wasting 3/4 of the solution because of skin allergies etc

Introducing Serywn skincare which is not only at the same level with brands like SK II, La Mer, Estee Lauder etc, but with a fraction of price AND you can try out their travel kit to first test whether it's suitable for your skin.

This handy travel kit is so convenient for travel and it comes with a beautiful pouch so you can just grab n' go!

Serywn tackles 7 major skin problems mainly:

a) Dry skin
b) Pores
c) Skin dullness
d) Fine lines
e) Uneven Skin Tone
f) Sensitive Skin
g) Speckle

Serywn is made in Taiwan and is made of deep sea minerals so be sure to know that it's FREE from:
-Preservatives
-Paraffin Oil
-Alcohol

The main ingredients of Serywn products are:

 a) Deep sea water(extracted from 600m below ocean level) 
-Extracted from deep ocean water at 600m below ocean surface which is pure and uncontaminated. Deep Ocean is rich in natural sea minerals and trace elements, containing magnesium, calcium and potassium.

b) Maifanite Stone Extract(commonly known as healing stone) 
-Maifanite stone is very porous and contain high micro nutrient elements. That makes it readily absorb impurities contained in the water and able to balance the radical ions. It regulates skin metabolism effectively and improves skin moisture

c) Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract
-It has the inhibitory effect on the activity of Tyrosine which causes the black pigmentation in skin

d) Humulus Lupulus Extract
-This ancient herbal plant contains high natural preservative qualities and gives optimum moisturising effect for a radiant complexion

The travel kit comes with 5 bottles of skincare together with a mask.

Let's go through step by step on how to use Serywn skincare travel kit:

Firstly is of course to deep cleanse our skin with the Moisturising Cleansing Gel, 20ml

What I love about Serywn is not only the effectiveness but also the little things.
They specially made a small tube to cover the opening so that the solution doesn't pour when you travel and it is intact in the bottle!

It is a transparent liquid which lathers into a soft creamy foam to effectively deep cleanse pores inside-out removing dirt and other impurities.

Gently lather an appropriate amount of cleanser on moistened palm and apply on damp face and neck.
After cleansing and massaging face, it leaves skin moist, clean and fresh!

The Advanced Hydrating Toner, 20ml is important in our skincare daily routine.

Just drop some onto palm and...

...dab onto face so that it penetrates into skin immediately.
This advanced hydrating toner effectively keeps the skin soothed, calmed and balances the skin's moisture level. It also prepares skin for better absorption of the benefits of the other Serywn products.

Next is Advanced Activating Concentrate, 6ml
This is a concentrated essence that penetrates quickly and deeply to build the skin's resistance by filling it with moisture and to brighten skin leaving skin brighter and luminous.

It contains 2-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid which is Vitamin C derivative, and can penetrate into skin more effectively and metabolised into ascorbic acid(Vitamin C), which is an antioxidant to increase the synthesis of collagen. 

Apply over cleansed and toned face and neck using light, upward movement.

Now, my favourite!
This Moisturising Hydrating Cream is so suitable for my oily skin and the humid climate.

Just press some onto palm...

...and dab it all over the face to refresh and soothe face leaving skin feeling soft and elastic! This moisturiser seals the retains moisture in the upper layers of the skin (epidermis layer). It creates a barrier on your skin that keeps oils from escaping and outside harmful elements from entering that causes skin dryness and irritation.

The Advanced Protective Cream, 6gm acts as a sunblock and designed specially for sensitive skin

The left side was applied with the Advanced Protective Cream while the right is bare.
As you can see, it gives skin a moisturised luminous glow while guarding skin against UVA and UVB radiation.

Lastly, the best seller and most recommended Serywn product!
This mask is as good as an SKII mask. Trust me, I have tried both before.

This hydrating firming mask improves dry and rough skin in just 15 minutes! It is enriched with repairing essences to leave skin supple, moisturised and have that 'boink' 'boink' skin elasticity hehe 

Pampering time!
This mask is the ultimate 'magic' solution for me.

Close up.
Before Serywn skincare and the mask, my skin was dull and rough.
After cleansing, toning and masking, in just half an hour, my skin immediately became brighter and glowing ^_^
I absolutely love this mask and a great shoutout to Serywn mask because you MUST absolutely try it for yourself =)

The only downside- the travel kit is too small for me haha...I had to repurchase in full sized products especially the mask!!

This skincare kit is of the most natural, harmless and non toxic skincare set I have used as it has no harmful chemical contents. Serywn is produced from ingredients of high permeability that can easily penetrate the skin lining into the inner layers. This gives skin better repairing results. 

With Noxious-Ingredients-Free (NIF) technique of production, Serywn pampers you with a soft, healthier and more radiant skin. It also reduces the chances of allergic reaction to skin and provide a superb skincare solution. Using this biotechnology technique, natural plant extracts undergo natural decomposition to produce the high-tech preservative, which contain no harmful toxics like chemical preservative(patrabens), DEHP, paraffin oil, alcohol or heavy metal elements. It rebuilds epidermis layers, rejuvenates and provides a perfect skin protection system.

Don't take my word for it. Just see it for yourself:

This user, Sean Choi used Serywn for 1 month or so and the results speak for itself. His acne prone skin has cleared up and his skin no longer have bad breakouts. If you see him in real life, you'll agree when I say he radiates because he does! Serywn really cleared up his skin and everyone around him are just impressed with the results ^_^

Another user, Felicia Tan had very visible acnes, scars and skin discolouration before this. But after constant usage of Serywn products for a year, just look at her 'After' pictures. Her skin cleared up, her skin tone is more even, and no more visible scarring. Amazing right?

Her testimonial:

"I have very sensitive skin ever since I was young, combined with an active and outdoor lifestyle, I always grew up with constant pimples and acne problems on my face. Have tried many pharmacy brands and even salon brands but the results are only temporary and when that time of the month comes, I would still have to suffer acne breakouts. I tried Serywn for at least 6 months consistently and saw proper results and safe to say that after 1 year, my skin complexion is totally different. My pimples and acnes have drastically reduced and scars and skin discolouration is now barely visible. Also, my pores are much smaller. Now, I don't have to use such heavy concealer to conceal any imperfections."

All individual product in the travel kit are also sold individually in their own full sized product. If you feel your skin connects more to one product better than the other, you can always re-purchase your favourite product in full size. Serywn has a wide range of products for different purposes and in fact they have in total 11 different types of skincare products, but for starters, this travel kit is highly recommended for first users!
