When Estée Lauder first launched their Night Repair in 1982, they were the first cosmetic company to use a pharmacy-inspired brown bottle to reinforce the product’s serious skin care sentiment. The iconic “little brown bottle” with the apothecary dropper would go on to become a staple in many women’s cosmetics cabinets all around the world.

The original Night Repair formula was the first serum ever created, and the first skincare product to use Hyaluronic Acid. Everything about the original Night Repair formula was unique – the texture, the formula, the technology – and remains so to this very day

The new Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II formula has 25+ patents and patents-pending worldwide, making it so revolutionary, it is patented until 2021.

Today, the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (ANR) is one of the best-selling, best-performing products in Estée Lauder history, with ANR being Estée Lauder’s number one repair serum, with approximately 9 bottles of ANR are sold every minute.

The Sally Hansen “Royal Splendor” Miracle Gel™ Collection introduces three (3) new monarch-magnificent shades to the Miracle Gel™ lineup. Sally Hansen Miracle Gel™ will keep your manicure looking majestic with up to 14 days of colour and shine. The revolutionary, #1 zero light gel manicure system has seven (7) new hues in its “Royal Splendor” collection. 

The “Royal Splendor” collection features three new regal shades:

  • Regal Rosé Wine and dine — or let them eat cake — in a sparkling pale peony
  • Off with her Red! Hold court with this vibrant, true red
  • Prince Char-mint A refreshingly Versailles-worthy pale verdant hue

When applied over the Miracle Gel™ shades, the Miracle Gel™ Top Coat volumizes as it protects, making it more chip-resistant than regular nail polish. Once applied, this gel top coat provides a high-gloss finish and mirror shine – providing the look of a gel manicure at home, without the trip to a salon.

Miracle Gel’s two-step application is super-simple:

  1. First, apply two thin coats of Miracle Gel™ colour to clean, bare nails.
  2. Then, apply one coat of the Miracle Gel™ Top Coat.

Natural light cures the polish, yielding a manicure that resembles a UV / LED cured gel polish. It removes easily with regular nail polish remover.

The new Miracle Gel™ “Royal Splendor” shades comes with the Recommended Retail Price of RM36.90 and are available from December 2016 onwards at selected Watsons, Guardian, Sasa Malaysia, Caring and Parkson.

Carlsberg’s Chinese New Year 2016 Media Launch Gala Dinner

[Event]

 

Ruyi & Lyn in Bangsar Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur played host to the Carlsberg Chinese New Year 2016 media and partners gala dinner on 8 January 2016. Carlsberg, a beer brand that strives to deliver the finest in everything it does, Carlsberg celebrates the Lunar New Year 2016 by naming it as “Probably The Best Year” (20一流–堪称最佳新年) – playing on the Mandarin and Cantonese pronunciation of the number ‘16’ [Yī Liú] with the Chinese character “一流”, which refers to excellence, top notch or simply the best.

“Chinese New Year is a festive period that runs through our veins at Carlsberg Malaysia,” Henrik Juel Andersen, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia said in his opening address.  “Our flagship brand Carlsberg took inspiration from our marketing campaign of ‘If Carlsberg did…” which was launched in 2015.  We reimagined if Carlsberg did Chinese New Year, it would probably be the best year, as superior as Carlsberg, probably the best beer in the world. Smartly crowning year 2016 as “Probably The Best Year” it is!” Andersen shared.

To mark the launch of Carlsberg’s Chinese New Year campaign, Carlsberg unveiled a seven-tier limited edition festive cans structure packaged to create a one-of-a kind Carlsberg Auspicious Bamboo (pictured on the left)

The special Carlsberg Auspicious Bamboo is 10 feet height and 8 feet wide, and even dispenses Carlsberg brews, making me wish that I had one at home. Each of the seven tiers carried a symbolic meaning, starting with ‘best of Friendship’ as the foundation, ‘best in Business’,  ‘best of Luck, ‘best in festive Bonus, ‘best of Health, ‘best of Fortune” and finally topped by ‘Probably The Best Year 2016’ at the peak of the Carlsberg Auspicious Bamboo.

The Chinese bamboo signifies an object that stands tall, unwavering, infinitely progressing and developing, yet able to withstand strong winds by being flexible and deeply rooted in the ground. Carlsberg believes that like the bamboo, an organisation of person with a strong state of mind, but yet is versatile in different situations, will allow them to enjoy the journey as well as the destination.

So what’s in store for you this Chinese New Year?

Bringing to life the CNY campaign tagline – “Probably The Best Year” (20一流), Carlsberg, for the first time ever launched seven limited edition designs with the seven icons across its cans and big bottles available nationwide during this festive period. Something nice for collectors and perhaps also a meaningful way to share a drink which bestows best wishes to family and friends.

Consumers can also strike a ‘big fortune’ with Carlsberg’s nationwide promotion running from now until 29 February 2016, whereby consumers who collect four crown corks are entitled to redeem RM2 Magnum Voucher and stand a chance to win Magnum Jackpot or redeem Jolly Shandy, depending on location.
