Lets Celebrate 70 Years of Healthy Skin with Cetaphil

It’s Cetaphil’s 70th anniversary and to celebrate this momentous occasion, they are giving away 70 Cetaphil hampers to 70 happy Malaysians worth a whopping RM270 each!

Cetaphil was invented in 1947 by a pioneering pharmacist in Texas. Its first product, the “Cetaphil Cleansing Lotion”, now known as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser still uses the very same formula! Over the years, Cetaphil has expanded their products to Malaysians including Cleansers & Moisturisers for the entire family (Cetaphil) and for children under 2-year-old (Cetaphil Baby), Sun Protection (Cetaphil Daylong) and also a specialized skincare range for eczema-prone skin (Cetaphil Restoraderm).

As you have already know, Cetaphil is one of the most loved products in my family. I love the Cetaphil’s simple philosophy of achieving healthier skin with just two steps: Cleanse and Moisturise.

Our everyday starts and ends with cleansing using the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, followed by the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. They’re great for both face and body, hypoallergenic and dermatologist recommended. Personally, even Liam’s paediatrician recommended Cetaphil to us.

I am happy to collaborate with Cetaphil to gift these hampers to a few of Malaysian readers and all you have to do is to:

Tell me your skin story and how can Cetaphil help in my comment section.

Each hamper contains the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, Cetaphil Moist Lotion and other products too. The most engaging and authentic stories will win a Cetaphil hamper with all the products you need before the year 2017 wraps up! Remember to leave an active email address so I could get in touch with you.

Thank you Cetaphil for making everybody’s skins healthier, softer and gorgeous since 1947. To find out more about Cetaphil, click to

The choice is Cetaphil for us.

I am so happy to be writing about this because it’s a very familiar brand in my household. When Liam was born, we knew straightaway what kind of cleanser we were going to get for his daily baths – Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.

# – Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.

This is because even before Liam, I was already using the Gentle Skin Cleanser and I absolutely LOVE it! Its soap-free formulation is cleansing, calming and very comforting to the skin.  Since it’s fragrance-free, it doesn’t clog pores and is suitable for all skin types…even very sensitive skin such as a baby’s. Even Liam’s paediatrician recommended it!

# – Liam’s favourite too. He loves the pump bottle design and always insist on helping me dispense the cleanser during his showers.

True to its name, the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser is that gentle that it can be used on the face and it’s my go-to cleanser after make-up removal. All you need is a little pump for the face and a couple more for the body.

# – A little bit goes a long way.

I also absolutely adore its Moisturizing Cream! Definitely one of the most effectively moisturising creams I’ve ever used. I’m a stay-at-home mum so my hands are always in contact with water and Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream definitely helps keep my hands soft and supple. Just apply a little dollop to the hands after washing and drying…voila, luxurious, supple palms and fingers.

# – Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream.

Don’t forget the elbows and legs, of course. I love how quickly it absorbs onto the skin, leaving my skin supple, smooth but not greasy. With extra-strength emollients and humectants, the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream binds water to the skin and prevents moisture loss.

# – Byebye scaly, dry pins.

It contains sweet almond oil so it has this very pleasant Amaretto-ish smell despite being fragrance-free. Unsurprisingly, it’s suitable for all skin types so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Last but not least, I highly recommend Cetaphil’s UVA/UVB Defense – a very high sun protection lotion with SPF 50+/UVA 28. You can use it on both face and body but I use it mainly on my face. At my age, I can’t afford to get sun spots so this is my must-have product. Best of all, it’s fragrance-free and hypoallergenic. I put a layer of the Cetaphil’s UVA/UVB Defense on my face after my regular cleansing and moisturising steps.

# – I love how light it feels on the skin and that it doesn’t leave a chalky residue on the skin after application.

I am pleased that Cetaphil not only completes my skincare routine but it’s also suitable for my entire family. Whether it’s Liam’s delicate young skin, my husband’s manly hide or my 33 going on 16 (ahem) face, Cetaphil works for all of us.

Here’s to healthier and lovelier skin with Cetaphil.

Kim x Prego: Recipe for Jolly Spaghetti Pizza Muffins

Trying to get the kids to eat to no avail? Well, here’s a recipe that would catch their attention – a “muffin” made out of pasta…that is also a pizza! Even the adults would be intrigued :)

With Prego sauces, this dish can be whipped up in more or less 30 minutes and it is as easy as 1,2,3!
Behold….the recipe for my Jolly Spaghetti Pizza Muffins!

Ingredients for 12 Jolly Spaghetti Pizza Muffins :

3 eggs
1 350gm jar of Prego Traditional Pasta Sauce
1 300gm can of Prego Mushroom Alfredo Sauce
250gm of Prego Spaghetti (half a packet)

Without further ado…

1. First of all, boil all the eggs for 7 minutes. Then drain and allow to cool.

2. Next, boil water and cook 250gm of Prego Spaghetti for 12 minutes.

3. While the pasta is cooking, grease the muffin tin with a little bit of olive oil.

4. After pasta’s cooked, drain them. Leave them in the strainer for a couple of minutes to allow most of the water to drain off.

5. Now, open the can of Prego Mushrom Alredo sauce. The smell of delicious mushroom is fabulous!

6. Pour 3/4 of a can into the drained pasta.

7. Mix well. I used my hands cause I could make sure that every bit of pasta got coated in the sauce.

8. Next, divide the pasta into all the muffin tin holes.

9. Bake in preheated oven of 220c for 15 minutes.

10. While waiting for the pasta to bake, quarter all the eggs.

11. After 15 minutes in the oven, your pasta pizza crusts are now done!

12. Time to open the jar of Prego Traditional Pasta Sauce.

13. Spoon a dollop of Traditional Pasta Sauce over each pasta crust.

14. Then top off with a wedge of egg. If you don’t want to use eggs, you can also use tuna or chicken.

15. Remember the can of Mushroom Alfredo sauce earlier? Well, spoon it over the egg, baby.

16. What a glorious sight…but it’s not done yet.

17. Stick it under the grill for 5 minutes just for the Mushroom Alfredo sauce to bubble up.

18. Now, these babies are ready to be devoured!

19. Crunchy, tart and creamy all at the same time. A smorgasbord of delicious textures.

There’s something for everybody from Prego.

Canned sauces that are great for travel. Also handy if there were a zombie apocalypse – can eat and also throw at them )

A good variety of pasta.

Buon appetito!
