Dove Blogger Event @ The Food Studio

Awesome beauty product + healthy foods = The best combo to stay beautiful! Yours truly attended a very interesting Dove event that we're not there to learn and get to know the new Dove product but also learn to cook and prepare 3 simple healthy meals on the last Saturday.

Please forgive our "sleepy" look and puffy eyes here because we need to woke up early on the Saturday for this special event! *wink* After all, we going to learn more about staying beauty! 

New Dove Body Wash with NutriumMoisture
It's all about the new range of Dove - New Dove Body Wash with NutriumMoisture - which nourishes better than milk. The new Dove Body Wash contains a patented formula with NutriumMoisturetechnology which is a unique blend of moisturising and nourishing ingredients that replenish nutrients back into the skin. The New Dove Body Wash with NutriumMoisture are available at all leading pharmacies, hypermarkets and supermarket for RM22.90 (1L) and also RM5.90 in 200ml for certain type of body washes.

Our morning was brightened up by lovely host, Chermaine with her wonderful speech to greet all of us on that morning. 

Tanya Teng (Brand Manager)
John Goh (R&D Deploy Manager. Home & Personal Care and R&D Site Leader)
It was then followed by product introduction briefing by Tanya Teng (Brand Manager for Skin Cleansing at Unilever (M) Sdn Bhd) and John Goh (R&D Deploy Manager, Home & Personal Care and R&D Site Leader at Unilever (M) Sdn Bhd). 

Tanya Teng - Dove has continuously led innovations in the skin care industry and the introduction of  NutriumMoisturetechnology continuous that tradition. We are thrilled our extensive research and testing has allowed us to be the first brand to minimize lipid damage with a liquid cleanser in order to provide long-term beauty benefits that strengthen and smooth skin.

John Goh - The new technology delivers hydration for skin barrier components and processes to help skin remain healthy and beautiful in the long-term when used daily. This technology represents an important change in the body cleansing paradigm. Body wash products have only tried to mask dry skin damage rather than effectively address it. By targeting skin directly where damage occurs (within the surface layer),  NutriumMoisturetechnology helps build a foundation for the stratum corneum to become stronger and the skin smoother.

They also conducted a mini experiment to prove that the New Dove Body Wash with NutriumMoisture nourishes better than milk. You would be surprised with it! 

Awesome Kitchen @ The Food Studio
Chef Paul
I don't cook and the both Uni and I was worried about the next session - cooking! Thank God that we were divided into groups and our amazing group were in charged in preparing dessert. Chef Paul started with briefing on what we are going to cook and luckily, he were there all the time to assist and guide us throughout the cooking session. 

The experience one!
Less experience one
Our amazing group consists of 5 awesome people with 3 of them who were better in cooking and us (Uni and I) who not so good in cooking? We divided our task brilliantly and the both of us managed to escape from holding the knife. :p

So, I was in charge in stirring the milk mixed with pandan milk which I thought pretty easy of all. Boy, I was wrong. It took forever to boiled. Worst part, I didn't even know how to switch on that electric stove until the Chef came and he was speechless with me. I know, but he said that he can see I have passion in cooking! Seems like he know how I wish to learn cooking badly too. :p

All of us there were so in love with how it tasted like, the texture of the salmon was tender and soft and enjoyed the bed of awesome mashed potatoes!

Dessert: Pandan Pannacotta with mangoes
Last but not least, our dessert - Pandan Pannacotta with Mangoes! Look at how it was nicely done and decorated. According to Chef Paul, it was great! Too bad that I could not enjoy this as much as I wish, and that also thanks to me being lactose intolerant. As you can see, it's pretty simple to prepare all the healthy and yummylicious dishes! You should try it at home too. :D
