Yours truly was among some of the members of the Butterfly Project Malaysia, spearheaded by the lovely Tammy Lim who were at the 1Utama to check out something new in the market....

Upon arriving there yours truly was immediately attracted to the lovely decorations with the products at the booth and there was even a little area to make your own tea from dried flowers and herbs.. 

How unique and ingenious... It surely was interesting for my daughter and me checking out all the interesting dried flowers and herbs...

Anyway.... well, being inspired by the goodness of nature from the earth, Mentholatum has created a brand new facial care series called the BOTANICS. This offers ladies like you and me not only the best skincare results but at a very affordable price.  

BOTANICS selects the best ingredients with the highest quality natural herbal essences from flowers and herbs to give us the best experience which only nature can produce. Each herb and flower were carefully selected based on their unique properties to offer outstanding results. 

The BOTANICS introduces four  products namely the face wash in a tube, foaming face wash, pump face wash and sheet masks to offer consumers a relaxing and natural experience the way nature intended.

 Each of these range includes a variety of offerings to suit various skin conditions. 


I for one just love all those dried flowers, herbs and potpourri scattered all around the place....

Anyway, the Face Wash tube comes in 4 variants namely Hydra Whitening, Pore Refining, Deep Cleansing and Hydrating; the Pump Wash comes in 2 variants namely Deep Clean and Moisturising & Brightening, the Foaming Wash comes in 2 variants namely Oil & Blemish Control and Whitening

The sheet mask is packed in a very pretty package kinda resembling a jar... There are 5 variants for this, namely the Aloe Vera Hydrating Facial Mask, Pomegranate Anti-Oxidant Facial Mask, Rosemary Pore Refining Facial Mask, Rosehip Oil Brightening Facial Mask and Lavender for Soothing Facial Mask.

Ok, let me share and tell you more about these products individually.......

And.... here are the dried flowers and herbs... it sure was interesting checking them out and choosing our own ingredients to make our own tea out of these...

I chose Osmantus, as I have heard so much about this and how this was quite a popular flower to add in cakes and desserts in ancient China, as well as Peach Flower, Chrysanthemum and some Apple Flower.... as a result, my tea was super fragrant with some natural sweetness from the Stevia leaves I added in...
