Introducing Miacare - Bringing confidence and joy into life.

Last week, I was invited to attend the meet & greet session of Miacare at Cafe Barbera in Bangsar. Miacare is wholly owned by BenQ Group. BenQ is usually associated with technology and electronic, but over the recent years they have expanded their line of business and Miacare is under the BenQ Materials Corp. that focuses on healthcare products.

"mia", in Italian means my, and care means caring and guardian, hence miacare gives meaning to the caring and being a guardian to the user, and that has to be all day, all year. The mission of miacare is to resolve concerns effectively with professional, smart and special designed product, bringing confidence and joy into life, create healthy and bring miracles to beauty.

Miacare provides skin care products and contact lens to our brand users. All the products are developed by Taiwan R&D team with specialization in material science and healthcare knowledge, and produced by certified ISO 13485 factory.

Models posing with MiaCare Acne Patch. We had to guess from a certain distance to see which model is wearing the MiaCare Acne Patch. Of course being the short-sighted me, I did not guess correctly.

Ms Joyce, introducing BenQ & Miacare to us. Darren, an optometrist who explained to us on the importance of maintaining a healthy eyes and also benefits of using the correct contact lenses. 

Besides that, dermatologist Dr. Kartini shared with us on the causes of acne and how to treat it. Pimples have been the all-time problem of adolescent, teenager, and even adults. And though pimples are only temporary, the mere sight of them scattered all over your face is really unpleasant. Acne isn’t just skin deep. Deep cystic eruptions, the ACNE are actually signs of inflammation under the skin. ACNE are develop when:
  • Hormones fluctuate
  • Wrong inventory of certain food we eat
  • Alcohol intake
  • Irregular bowel movement
  • Under extreme stress
The reason can be endless! Which is why sometime we can get acne even after 40 years old! Check out what products Miacare has below to tackle acne issues.

Miacare Acne Patch

Available at Watsons, Guardian & Sasa. A range of ultra-thin, stick-on pimple patches designed to effectively combat visible blemishes effortlessly. Using a two-fold method, the patch heals the zit without scarring whilst concealing it.

The range is suitable for all skin types and features three types of patches which is Day 12 (0.015cm thinnest for day use - RM10.05), Night 12 (0.018cm for maximum pus absorption for night - RM10.30) and Day & Night 18 (for whole day total timple care - RM14.50).

Made from 100% medical grade hydrocolloid dressing used by medical professionals to heal wounds, the acne patch naturally absorbs pus to reduce inflammation and promote a quick drying out of the pimple to reveal skin clearing effects in just 72 hours.

With an UV-Prevention technology, the patch can absorb more than 95% of harmful UV ray. The patches prevent potential acne pigmentation from forming to maintain a flawless complexion.

Applicable to be worn under makeup due to the patch being ultra-thin, it guards the inflamed area from chemicals in makeup. This ensures that the skin is given the right environment to heal, free from irritants and bacteria for relieved skin at the end of the day.

With patented anti-acne ingredients and natural plant extracts, it is effective to clear acne, improve acne scar, clean blocked skin pore and for whitening. It is designed as a roll-pen design, which is easy carry for the brand user.

This feature enhances all-day wearing comfort and promoting long term eye health.

[Review] Sudio Earphones

 photo DSC_8477-2.jpg
Sudio - an earphone brand originating from Sweden. The name Sudio came about when one of the founders spotted musician Phil Collins in New York having problems with his headphone. Similar to the frustration most headphone users are having, the founder couldn't offer any better solution at that moment to Phil and could only utter out his sentiments which were: "trust me I know the feeling". The name sudio is an homage to Phil Collins song Sussudio.

I was very fortunate to receive a pair of TVÅ earphones from Sudio which was delivered to me all the way from Sweden! Sudio has two products which is Klang, specially for Apple products and the TVÅ which is suitable for all smartphones & tablets. Check out what's inside the box!

 photo DSC_8483-2.jpg
Packaged nicely in a box, it comes with an owner's manual, 1 year warranty card and a quick start guide. The boxes are designed in a minimal yet elegant way. 

 photo DSC_8487-2.jpg
Inside the packaging also comes with a genuine leather carrying case which is a plus point as I get to keep my earphones neatly into the casing without any worry of damaging the earphones. Embossed with Sudio's logo, the gold button definitely adds sophistication to the casing.

 photo DSC_8491-2.jpg
Not forgetting the TVÅ earphones which is packed nicely into the box and comes with a metal clip which is very useful to clip the wire onto your outfit if you don't want the wires to swing around when you are on the move. Most importantly, you can also reach out to your earphones easily when it is clipped onto the outfit. 

 photo DSC_8501-2.jpg
TVÅ is Swedish for number "two" which represents the synergy between  bass and treble. The earphones allow air to enter the ear  channel for those who prefer the spatial experience. It comes in four colours which is brown, orange, black and white. I went with the white as it is the colour that easily compliments the outfit no matter what colour or pattern. Also, I fell in love with the gold details on the earphones. Its timeless elegant design is suitable for every day and every event.

Sudio earphones are mostly handmade for most part of the production process as they value the importance of craftmanship.

 photo DSC_8495-2.jpg
What's different about the TVÅ is that the plug is L-shaped, which is designed to fit perfectly into the pocket. Compared to those vertical/straight up plugs that most of my earphones have, the L-shaped plug does not poke me whenever I sit down.

It also has an extremely light weight construction, making the earphones easy and comfortable to wear. The earphones, despite it being light weight, drives a powerful 14.2mm dynamic driver which is perfectly tuned for music lovers.

 photo DSC_8497-2.jpg
This is the one button that serves as a multipurpose remote for you to:
  • Play & pause music (1 click)
  • Answer & reject phone call (1 click - but when rejecting a phone call, you'll need to hold onto the button longer)
  • Skip to next music (2 clicks)
  • Skip to previous music (3 clicks)
Behind the button is also a mic for you to speak through during a phone call :)

 photo DSC_0036-2.jpg
I've been using the earphones for over a month now and I am still in love with it! The quality of the sound is really good where the bass and treble is well balanced and I could go on listening to music for hours and be absorbed into my own little world. I brought it along with me during my Taiwan trip and used it to listen to some music before I go to sleep. The clarity of the sound helps me soak up all the lovely music and relax further.

 photo DSC_0049-2.jpg
TVÅ retails at RM149 for is really value for money if you ask me. The design & quality is great and it's fashionable too! I also don't have to worry about the cords tangling and bring it where ever I go as TVÅ is made of flat anti-tangle cord.

Sudio provides FREE worldwide shipping when you purchase through their website at http://www.sudio.se/en/store. So hurry over now! Also, here is a special discount code for you! Just key in Lichuen15 upon your checkout to receive 15% off your purchase :)
