Za - Empower Your Style with Za Men

Introducing Za's new line of skincare for men called Za Men!
Za is known to be a brand that provides makeup and skincare for women hence I was baffled when I was invited to their event at TGV Indulge, 1 Utama.
Nevertheless, I was assured that it's an event for both male and female alike and so I obliged in a break from the hectic workplace to have a slow and relaxed day.

When I arrived, I was still a little confused as to whether or not it's a girly event thing because everything that I saw in there were women's makeup and skincare on display. Although even if it is, this may not be the first time I attended an event catered for female, but usually, I would be with my bunch of beauty aficionado friends and that sets me at ease while this one, well, I'm going on my own and unsure if they'll be there. Coupled with the fact that they weren't able to reveal to me just yet, it made me doubted as I cautiously enter with equally puzzled eyes on me. LOL.

So then I was told that at the moment, on display, it's Za's latest Autumn/Winter 2014 range of women's makeup and skincare.
This includes the Perfect Solution Youth Whitening Serum (RM59.90):
Which is used after applying toner but before moisturizer and contains Yuzu extract and marine collagen for firming. (Available in September 2014)

Za Perfect Fit Liquid Foundation (RM37.90):
Which is a water based foundation that's 100% oil free and is 8-hour lasting for translucent finish. (Available in October 2014).

And Za Gel Eyeliner (RM26.90):
Which is available in Real Black color and Deep Brown and is able to last for 24 hours. (Available in October 2014).

Later on, the event started with the introduction of the products ala movie theater style and a testing session. I was however, relieved to see a fellow familiar face in the midst which I could say hi too without feeling too conscious of myself.

As soon as they're done detailing on the various women's product, they surprised the audience by introducing a new line from Za for Men with the tagline, Empower your Style:
Present along for the launch of Za Men were celebrity friends William San and Jeffrey Cheng while the MC was Patricia K.

When the presentation on the products were said and done, we headed back to the lounge area to find the men's skincare line was setup:
Along with the Ultimate Recharge Deep Cleansing Scrub, there's also the Ultimate Matte Purifying Oil Control Cleanser and the Ultimate Moist Deep Cleansing Gel all priced at RM16.90 each for the 100g tubes.

On top of the cleansers, there are also moisturizers released:
With the Ultimate Recharge Energizing Gel Moisturizer and the Ultimate Matte Purifying Oil Control Gel in 50g tubes for the price of RM26.90

All of the Za Men products are scheduled to be available on October 2014 at selected Watsons store nationwide.

So I got myself the Ultimate Recharge Deep Cleansing Scrub and the Ultimate Recharge Energizing Gel Moisturizer to try out.
When I first looked at the product, I was a little scared on applying it.
This is because of the word 'Energizing' which it mentions that it's great for people who has tired looking skin in working late nights and stuff and it will energize you from morning till throughout the day. Why this word scares me is because I have a skincare product years ago that claims exactly that and whenever I apply it, it gives me a headache. And so, I contemplated hard before opting to try it out.

The scrub is a mud scrub cleanser that contains "Energy Capsules":
Energy capsules contains energy supplying components which are Vitamin C + Vitamin E to the skin. The scrub has an earthy tone color to it and at first, applying the scrub on the skin felt like nothing but seconds later, you can feel a little heat from it which I guess that's the energizing effect and a lasting cooling after effect when it's washed off.

Next, after cleansing and shaving, I tried out the Ultimate Recharge Energizing Gel Moisturizer:
As expected, the moisturizer which contains Royal Jelly extracts has a transparent yellow color. It also contains Taurine, Hyaluronic Acid Complex and the Energy Capsule that's in the scrub I have too which these are the energizing agents. Unlike the scrub, the moisturizer immediately takes effect on the skin where I feel to a certain extend the refreshing feeling coming from it. It may at first feel to me like there's a layer on top of my skin but it quickly dissipates and the feeling is not apparent anymore. And most importantly, it doesn't give me a headache using it. Well, it does energize me to a slight extent but I'd rather not exhibit it. LOL. And after just a few days of using, everytime I look at my office restroom mirror, it does give my skin a more vibrant and radiant look.

Well, overall I would say that it's effects do work as what they say they do on me and I'm happy that they shared it with me.
