10 Weirdest Asian Beauty Products You Need To Checkout ASAP!

Published

on

I don’t know if you know this, but with each passing day; Asian beauty products keep going more viral and viral that even celebrities have taken up to it! However, amongst those products, there are some really crazy ones that will most definitely bring out the skeptic in you.

1. Bigan Beauty Face Expander

This is a cheek training product that claims to tighten your skin and prevent it from sagging. The “muzzle” thing is made from silicon, so that it won’t hurt your face, not so sure about that. This product promises firmer, younger looking skin. P.S. It’s probably a bad idea to buy anything that has the words “Face Expander” on it.

2. Besolbo – Royal Salmon Egg Return CreamI know this looks ideal for sushi lovers and I very much believe that if I actually did get my hands on one of those little containers, I would definitely test their edibility. However, what we didn’t know is that apparently, salmon eggs can help fix a lot of skin problems, including: acne, roughness and dark spots. The product promises to keep your skin hydrated and moisturized. It also promises to regulate nutrition production in order to further improve your skin condition in general. But the real question is: Will you eat them or use them on your face, son?

3. Bubble Masks


Yes, this is the same skincare mask that you’ve been seeing on your instagram for some time now! Bubble masks are the latest beauty trend that Korea has graced us with. It’s safe to say that these masks have totally gone viral! Apparently the mask is a really good pore cleaning product. The reason why it bubbles up that way is that the ingredients of your mask react with the oxygen in your skin to really penetrate that skin of yours and give it a proper cleanse. But anyway, I’m pretty sure everyone’s using it because it’s a damn trend and it makes you look like Dumbo.

4. Holika Holika – Pig Collagen Jelly Gel Mask


No. Nope. There’s no way in hell this pig jell-o thing is touching my face. This mask is made from pig skin. oink oink. Apparently, though, pig collagen is a lot like human collagen, in that it can really really keep your skin super healthy. It keeps your skin tight, hydrated and gets rid of fine lines, leaving you with soft and luminous skin.

5. Eyebrow Tint

Pretty positive that this is a really bad idea that will leave me looking like Beetlejuice’s girlfriend. I mean, yeah, this obviously lasts longer than normal eyebrow pencils, gels and pomades but, still, I’d go for the classic way of filling my brows in. And I don’t know about you, but the above photo isn’t at all encouraging either. Those eyebrows look orange, mate. they’re effing orange.

6. Enprani – Dear by Fondant Cheese Foundation

Nope, you ain’t dreamin’, kid. This face foundation is, indeed, made of CHEESE. And not just that, Enprani also make cheese compact powders and cheese face cream (melted cheese and Bounce cheese). This cheese foundation is SPF 30. The makers of the product state “Rich nutrition cheese ingredients provide moisture, blemish free coverage of the skin”. I am addicted to cheese, man but I wouldn’t waste it on my face.

7. Etude House – Cherry Lip Gel Patch


And yet another instagram trend that went so viral, Emma Stone herself posted a photo in her collagen lip patch while getting ready for the Golden Globes. This cute as hell lip mask promises to give you lips just like those of K-pop and K-drama stars. The product promises to diminish your dead skin cells and generate new healthy ones. The patch promises to fix your chapped lips using its cherry extracts to keep your lips soft and pink. It also leaves a layer of soft moisture film on your lips to protect it from damage.

8. Face Waver Exercise Mask

While this mask definitely looks like something out of 1974’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it promises to stretch your face so hard, your wrinkles will vanish. The mask supposedly works on tightening your skin and strengthening your facial muscles, resulting in a younger looking you.

9. RIRe Lip Powders


Those lip powders turn into liquid once you set them on their lips. The product aims to keep your lips hydrated and moisturized all day while giving your lips just the amount of color tint it needs. I would try this one only because I think that the concept is so cool!

10. Skin Food Gold Caviar Toner


I already feel fancy AF just looking at it! This product contains gold flakes and Russian Caviar that both promise to nourish and moisturize your skin to the max. I would most deff use this! How fun would it be to apply gold particles to my skin like an insanely rich fortune heiress??? I’ll take one!

Published

By

Saudi Health Minister Tawfiq Al-Rabiah announced on Monday that Saudi Arabia will procure the vaccine for Covid-19 once its safety is confirmed and its effectiveness proved.

He added that several studies are currently in place in different countries and that health authorities are up to date with the progress. Moreover, the recovery rate from the virus has risen to 96% in the Kingdom.

The minister says that this decline in the number of the cases is thank to the “commitment to health precautions.”

“I also thank my fellow health practitioners for their wonderful efforts,” Al-Rabiah added.

“We (all) are in one boat, and the failure of some affects everyone, so we must work together” to check the spread of the virus.

He also advised people who show any symptoms of COVID-19 to visit Tetamman (rest assured) clinics.

“Appointments can be made through the ministry’s Sehaty app, and anyone who has any questions or wants to consult a doctor can call 937,” the minister said.

He also stressed on the importance of maintaining social distance and the needed precautionary measures.

Health Authorities in the Kingdom Set to Participate in Trials of Covid-19 Vaccines

Published

King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC) is set to participate in advanced trials of a couple of vaccines for COVID-19. 

Around 40 vaccines are showing potential and are currently being tested on humans. Nine of these vaccines are at an advanced stage, whereas their effectiveness are being evaluated.

The center is ready to work along with with the Kingdom’s Ministry of Health and the Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA) and take part in the tests of one or two of the nine vaccines that are currently in the third phase of clinical trials.

Dr. Naif Al-Harbi, the head of KAIMRC’s drug-development unit, told Al-Ekhbariya TV news channel that they expect to have hold of nine vaccines, all of which are in the third stage of clinical trials.

“Approval or disapproval of any drug normally follows the third stage of its clinical trials, which is the last stage,” he added. “Since the pandemic, KAIMRC has been in continuous contact with a number of drug companies in four countries (that are developing vaccines).” Al-Harbi said.

“We examine the drugs and make sure they have caused no side effects when tested on humans, or that they just caused insignificant side effects,” said Al-Harbi. “We also look into the manufacturing company’s profile to ensure it follows the standards of the good manufacturing practices, and that the company’s products are consistently produced and controlled according to quality standards.”

We’re wishing for the best and for a vaccine to be developed, so our lives can go back to normal.

The Kingdom has launched a number of clinics that they have named ‘Tataman’ for patients who are having coronavirus symptoms but are not yet diagnosed with the virus.

These new facilities, identified in English as “Fever Clinics” in a Ministry of Health tweet, will operate 24/7.

“In the interest of the health of all those on the land of our dear homeland, we launched today “tataman” [reassurance] clinics that are dedicated to people who experience symptoms of coronavirus, such as high fever, and will expand during the next two days,” Saudi Health Minister Tawfiq Al-Rabiah said in the tweet.

The clinics have started operations in six cities in Saudi Arabia, and the ministry said that it’s planning on expanding the clinics’ branches across the rest of the Kingdom’s provinces later on.

So far, the 31 clinics are currently open in the cities of Riyadh, Al-Ahsa, Qassim, Jeddah, Makkah and Madinah.
