10 Weirdest Asian Beauty Products You Need To Checkout ASAP!



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!

U.K. Becomes First Country to Approve Pfizer/ BioNTech Vaccine




The United Kingdom became the first country today to formally approve both Pfizer and BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, something that is considered as a huge milestone in the battle against the virus.

The UK had ordered 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine, and it will be rolled out from early next week. The quantity is enough for just under a third of the population as two shots of the jab are needed per person to provide immunity.

It is said that this will be just enough for health workers and the elderly, as they come at the top of the priority list.

The doses will be rolled out as quickly as they can be made by Pfizer in Belgium, Mr Hancock said, with the first load next week and then “several millions” throughout December.

“For so long we’ve been saying that if a vaccine is developed, then things will get better in 2021, and now we can say when this vaccine is rolled out things will get better,” British Health Secretary Matt Hancock told the BBC.

This is has given us much hope, as it will pave the way towards the vaccination.

Pharmaceutical company ‘Pharco’ to Locally Manufacture the Covid-19 Vaccine




Pharmaceutical company ‘Pharco’ is planning on locally manufacturing the novel Covid-19 vaccine, with the aim of exporting it to Africa, head of the firm, Sherin Helmy announced on Monday.

“We have been working on finding more than one alternative for anti-Covid-19 vaccines in Egypt since the outbreak of the pandemic so we can negotiate the price later. If the coronavirus wave exacerbated, the wealthy countries will be the most demanding and competing over the vaccines. Hence, it was important for Egypt to diversify the sources of treatments between China and Russia,” Helmy told Youm7.

She also explained that around 70% of drugs that are used in Africa are imported, which costs a lot of the hard currency. This brings the need for agreements with African nations to establish pharmaceutical plants on their own territories.

So far, the company has 7 pharmaceutical plants in Egypt, one of then is near the Egyptian-Japanese University in Alexandria.

The company has already succeeded in manufacturing the drugs used in treating Hepatitis C, which helped in treating millions of patients.

It has also established the first factory in Egypt for locally manufacturing raw pharmaceutical materials.

Egypt Secures a Share From the Covid-19 Vaccine




Hope rose when pharmaceutical giant Pfizer announced that its Covid-19 vaccine has shown great effectiveness even better than what experts predicted and with such great news, Egypt officials came to assure the public that Egypt will be among the first countries to get its hand on the vaccine once approved.

Gehan Al-Assal, deputy head of the Health Ministry’s Scientific Committee to Combat Coronavirus, said that once the vaccine is fully approved, Egypt will be one of the first countries to get the vaccine after passing the third phase of Covid-19 testing.

“Pfizer has to demonstrate the vaccine’s effectiveness on patients, its side effects, and its impact on patients with chronic underlying conditions,” said Al-Assal.

So far, the vaccine has been approved by the World Health Organization, but it’s still waiting for approval from the US Food and Drug Administration. After getting the FDA’s approval in a few days, Egypt will receive a share from the vaccine right away.

“The government has contracted for 30 million doses to be delivered as a first batch,” said Megahed. He noted, however, that it is still too early to determine what kind of vaccine Egypt will use. “The Chinese vaccine has been tried now on more than 45,000 Egyptian volunteers and the results are promising,” Khaled Megahed, official spokesman to the Ministry of Health said.

Also worth mentioning is that according to Minister Hala Zayed, Egypt also reserved 30% from Oxford’s vaccine. She also added that there is no shortage in the medicines that help in fighting off the virus.

Egypt has participated in two clinical trials for Covid-19 vaccines and established are 61 labs for PCR testing for travelers.

So far, everything looks promising and we hope that a vaccine can soon end this fright once and for all.
