Samadoyo Teapot with Candle Warmer S-070

Hello lovelies.

Since it is the season of giving, I'd like to share my kind of a thoughtful gift (self-requested actually, lol).

First off, I actually do not really celebrate it with gift giving. Instead, I celebrate it with food & dessert. Thank God for enabling me to feel warm, safe and have a full tummy daily. :)

A few days ago, I met Ms. E. She was super nice & friendly and look so Korean in my opinion. Anyway, she is one of the creator of this cool, chic and modernised teapot. Love the exterior and the mainpoint is the candle! I like to drink my flower tea warm and slow, thus I need a candle-like thing to maintain the pot warm. According to the feedback of customers, the candle lasts for 45mins.

Its a love at first sight for this pot, thus I bought it instantly. :)

It may be costly but it is worthy.
Why?
• top quality of borosilicate glass
• transparent & clear
• beautiful yet durable
• maintain original taste and color
very heat resistant : -40°C - 140°C
bear instant temperature change (variation of 180°C)

Package contains the lid, filter thing, glass body pot and the base of the candle holder with 6 pieces of candles.

Image credits to seller (Here)

I will be using it soon :)
(Will update my thoughts after I have used it!!)
Cannot tell you how happy when I have finally found The One pot for me!! :)

Get one even after the season of gifting. Show love to make one's day and even your own!

SKINFOOD Royal Honey Eye Cream

Hello lovelies, how are you all doing?

My eyes are totally not doing fine coz of the many accumulating reasons below. First off, I do not own much eye creams and I simply bought this last year at HK (click here if you haven't read about my massive haul last year!) coz my crow feet and all decided to appear much earlier due to my bad habits of rubbing the eyes, not committing to the ritual of using eye creams and a biological clock of an owl....hmph...

Brand: Skinfood
Item: Royal Honey Eye Cream
Content: 30ml



Function: Moisturises eye area and also anti-wrinkle effect

I have been trying this on and off for about 1-2 months....

Effectiveness: Personally do not think this product work (anti-wrinkle effect) other than providing the moisture to my delicate eye area.
Smell/texture? Mild honey scent with a creamy texture
Packaging? Easy to dispense amount but would not be user friendly in places with higher atmospheric pressure (eg. Genting Highlands etc)
Cost wise? Very affordable for only 30-50hkd for a 30ml eye cream.

Recommendation?
Will not recommend to one looking for effectiveness (anti-wrinkle effect) but it won't hurt anybody for that moisturising effect, you can give it a try if you don't mind. :)

Repurchase?
No, coz I really really wanna get rid of my dark eye circles and crow feet (I know Indeed Lab have great stuff for the eyes, but, hmm, am trying to look for a lower end eye cream that would work magic on my eyes. Lol. Maybe after a few tries and when my purse have enough, I would try Indeed Lab's product!)

Thank you for reading and have a nice day! ^^

Naruko Raw Job's Tear Supercritical CO2 Pore Minimizing & Brightening Essence

Hello lovelies, how was your December progressing?
Mine was pretty bad...maybe. But it won't stop me from meeting my friends with my kinda major breakout. 
If you have been following my Instagram (@beeleec) then you would have noticed (or not, lol) that I no longer post selfies; the latest one was a throwback pic with my sad caption of regrets. Lol.
Stay tuned for my "Probable Cause of my Breakout".
;)

Anyway, let's have a break from my eye mask reviews and focus on my Naruko Essence review this round.

Brand: Naruko
Item: Raw Job's Tear Supercritical CO2 Pore Minimizing & Brightening Essence
Content: 30ml / 1.05fl. Oz.


The box is pretty and can be folded into some kind of container. SO creative!


I quite like the packaging and its color. ^^

Main Ingredients (for full list, click here.):
Phytoferulin: made from kalanchoe spathulata extract and 10 other comcentrated organic herbal extracts certified by ECOCERT, Phytoferulin strengthens skin's defense against harmful environmental factors while revitalisimg the skin from its core.
Raw Job's Tears Oil Extract: Extracted from adlay seeay, this ingredient enhances skin hydration. Coupled with excellent antioxidant mechanism, it also prevents skin from aging and restores a youthful complexion.
Raw Job's Tears Extract: A perennial herb that can effectively hydrate, soften, and soothe the skin. Its antioxidant effect defends against UV and environmental damages and at the same time brightens your skin.
Jobs Tears (Coix Lacryma-Jobi) Water: Boosts skin metabolism, effectively maintains evened skin tone, enhance skin defence against environmental damages and soothes skin's irritation.
Gluconolactone: Mild and free of the irritation caused by alpha-hydroxy acids, helps to clear away dead skin cells and provides hydration simultaneously.
Yeast Complex B: A polysaccharide that contains yeast extract, hydrates and repairs skin to make it healthy and strong; Vitamin B1 & B6 control sebum secretionand balance skin.
Evermat: A complex that contains enantia chlorantha bark extract and oleanolic acid can inhibit 5-alpha reductase and control sebum production, to effectively reduce shine & clean, clear and minimize pores.
Snow Fungus Extract: Aka "white tree ear fungus", that is a natural moisturizer that is rich in Mucopolysaccharide and natural moisturising factors. Its moisturising power exceeds the effects of Hyaluronic Acid, promising you glowimg and hydrated skin.
Hyaluronic Acid: It is an effective moisturising agent with strong moisture absorption property. When applied on the surface of your skin, it can retain hydration and continuously moisturize your skin.
Tranexamic Acid: It is a brightening ingredient that is highly stable. Its ability to tackle melanin productio  at the source helps prevent appearance of dark spots at the skin's surface, giving you fairer, brighter skin.
Vitamin C Ethyl: It is a stabilized type of Vitamin C that brightens and evens the skin tone to prevent dullness.
Vitamin C Glucoside: With high stability, it can easily be absorbed by the skin and be broken down into pure Vitamin C. This maximizes the brightening and antioxidant effect.
Phytosphingosine: It can improve your skin condition and remove dead skin cells.

Benefits: Minimize pores and creates fair, smooth and flawless skin.

Direction: Apply generously all over face and massage for better absorption.

Skin types: All, especially for the skin with uneven complexion and visible pores.

Thoughts?
It does a good job in soothing my skin. Even skin tone and finer pores, "I Don't Know". It does moisturize my skin but Not Enough! Once it dries it does not leave a sticky feeling (maybe a super minimal stickiness for those who are sensitive?). I quite like the smell as it smells like bread crumbs / fermented barley with the mildest tinge of alcohol. Packaging is the pump dispenser kind which is hygienic and allows easy control when dispensing the essence each time. For my not-so-consistent use, this little bottle lasts me 3-4 months. I think for those who use consistently, it shall last a good 2-3 months time.

My lazy skincare routine:
Pre-cleanse > cleanser > toner > essence > moisturizer/sleeping pack

Rating: 3/5

Repurchase?
Yes. However, I will continue to look for a serum that will show more effectiveness.

I do not remember how much it was coz I ask big sis to buy for me at Taiwan itself (definitly cheaper than those sold in Malaysia!) during her last visit there. As of now, it costs RM49.50 (here).

Thank you for reading lovelies <3 <3 <3

SAVEE Eye Mask Anti-eye Bag

Hello lovelies.
Am back with another eye mask review, again.
Heard of SAVEE?

Tbh, I do not know nor have the confidence whether this brand has good reviews or not when I puchased this item last year...lol. But since it was on promotion that time (last year in the kl sentral hallway) I just grabbed a few pieces as it was only RM1 or RM2 per piece.

Background info on SAVEE:
Basically Savee is a complete beauty and cosmetic solution (from hair care to cosmetics)
For more info, visit here.

Brand: Savee
Item: Eye mask anti-eye bag
Function: Combats formation of eye bags and alleviates eye puffiness, refining eye contours for more radiant looking eyes.




Ingredients:
Aqua, Acrylates / G10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Glycerol Formal, Hyaluronic Acid, Arginine, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Aloe Vera, Leaf Extract, Propylene Glycol, Collagen, Ubiquinone, Prunis Amygdalus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extraxt, Bamboo Extract, Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwrack) Extract

Instruction:
Cleanse face. Apply mask onto eye area for 10-15minutes. Remove mask and dab remaining essence around eye area until fully absorbed. For best results, use daily.

So cool coz it is my first time trying on this cutting of eye mask but hate it when I had to ask another to take picture for me as I cannot selfie! (wanna look at how ridiculous I looked with this...hahaha....seriously, it is funny!)

Effectiveness?
Felt refreshed however there is no wow effect of the lightening of dark circles. (I can only say it if I have more to do and note down but unfortunately, I have no more of it).

Stickiness?
Slightly

Scent?
Strange. Don't know what word to use. Lol.

Mask quality?
Can hardly tear it & there is plenty of essence still after 10 minutes of application.

Rating?
2/5

Repurchase?
Not really coz I prefer dermal eye masks more (click on link for my full review, here) and there isn't much of a wow effect so...no.


Dermal Anti-Wrinkle Eye Patch

Hello lovelies!
Yes, talking about my eyes tho I do not apply much eye creams. The least I do for my eyes is to have this patches at least once a week (I know it is very lazy, but, I repent!). I quite fancy this brand and thus if you are into Korean skin care products, I guess you might have heard of DERMAL :)

I got this product via an online site (koreadepart.com) with my sisters. It was wayyyy back in 2014 and that was how long I have delayed in writing this post. That time, it was only USD1.95 for 5 pairs. So I shared with sis.

Not my image. I got it from here as I threw mine away and later only realized that I have not take a pic of it.

The package says that it is an "Advanced Anti-Aging Eye Care System" offering moisture, overall protection for the delicate eye area, wrinkle care and brightening.

Instruction?
After cleansing, apply the eye patch on eye area for 20-30 minutes

Till this day, I am still very amazed at the size of the eye patch. (No, I am not complaining!) ^^

Scent?
Mild, citrusy/flowery
Quite liking it.

Stickiness?
Not at all when it dries up (drying time is quite short upon tapping motion). There is quite some essence if you still wanna apply it to other areas of your neck and body area.

Effectivity?
No immediate effect for eleminating wrinkle and brighten the dark circles (it did brighten a little after 2nd or 3rd use). I do feel more moisturised in my eye area! :)

Repurchase?
Yes, coz I simply love its scent and the moisturising factor. Also, continuous use for it can slightly brighten my eye area on my 2nd or 3rd usage. :)

Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash

I have quite some hauls and as of lately I realized that I did not stock sufficient facial cleansers.

I quickly got a gel cleanser from Himalaya coz someone commented on my sister's blog saying that this gel cleanser from Himalaya is great, even for sensitive skin.
There were positive and neutral reviews about it. So far that I have read, there were no reported bad review about it.

Brand: Himalaya Herbals
Item: Purifying Neem Face Wash
Content: 50ml


Ingredients:
*free from paraben, SLS/SLES, phthalates

Function: cleanses and purifies for clear, problem-free skin.

Thoughts?
It cleanse okay, maybe coz I was not used to gel kinda cleansers (even Cetaphil gel cleanser makes me weird although I have read quite many positive reviews of how great it works on their skin). As a long term user (2 to 3 months time, I think), I grew to like it. And maybe love it. Lol. It is gentle on skin and doesn't strip my skin's natural oil (coz no squeaky clean feel to my current combination skin) & it does not break me out...however it does not prevent future acne to not pop out (for my case). Hmph. Scent is of mild herbal scent and it does not bother me at all.

Repurchase? Would purchase it again, but I would first try other cleansers coz this ain't cheap when there is no promotion for it. ^^

For more info, you can visit this blogger here, she does not recommend to beauties with dry skin.

Good day and thank you for reading!
:)

My Eyes Feel Naked!!

Hello lovelies.
How are you all doing?

I cannot believe I am back this early to already update you guys about my removal process of my eye lash extensions.

*cry a thousand river*

Its only a mere 10 days and I got to remove it.

Here is a picture for me to admire my Once Upon A Time -- Lush Lashes by Pink Passion.


If you haven't read up my first ever experience of Eye Lash Extension, here you go! ^^

I did it on the 16th October 2015 at Pink Passion.

Touch up was on the 18th October 2015 at Pink Paassion.

Removal process was on the 26th October 2015 at Beautilogy Wellness World.

*a few hours before I found Beautilogy Wellness World*

1.03am - *rub eyes* Felt loose lashes. Went to the mirror. Flipped them lashes and noticed loose ends. Pulled some out and omfg, I cannot stand it. I started pulling out some of it and realized what I did was toooooooooooo unforgivable. Quickly made myself to sleep telling myself that I can go to Pink Passion for the removal ASAP.

9.30am - Woke up to only realize Pink Passion do not open on Mondays (this is my assumption coz the last time I called, they say they do not open on Mondays, if I recall correctly that is).

2.10pm - Quickly then I send sis back and google up salon that remove/apply eye lash extensions in Taipan area (coz I was near there). Two names came up but I wasn't familiar with any of them. Circled and circled around it. Finally saw Beautilogy Wellness World.

Removal was actually RM10 cheaper at Beautilogy (RM40) compared to Pink Passion(RM50 or RM60). I however do think that Pink Passion would do a better removal job than Beautilogy did. Just my gut feeling.

Removal process:
- applied some cotton pad with a kind of liquid to soften the glue used on the lash extensions
- wait
- use calipers to remove the extensions
- apply smtg on the lashes (I think it is serum) which gives a warm (and irritated on the other eye) but bearable sensation. As she wipes it off, the warm feeling subsides and I can open my eyes with no problem. I don't know why or if it is what it is but I felt that the staff might have used a shaver or some sort to help remove the extensions from the real lashes coz the extensions was not originally done by them thus the removal process may be harder for her. Idk. Just another assumption.

Sorry for the assumptions I brought along the way but what I can tell you with confidence is that:
1- let your lashes rest for about 1-3 or 4 weeks as you like.
2- while letting them rest, do APPLY LASH SERUMS. It helps to moisturise and lengthen the lashes.
3- you can have another lash extension done as fast as 1 week of break

I am secretly looking forward to the one-by-one lash extensions.
The one I did at Pink Passion was wonderful, but coz it's a branch sticking onto each individual lashes and then glued together, when I pull them a section falls out instead of one lashes falling.

Thoughts of a first timer and not a frequent falsies wearer, I personally find it:
1- Hard to discipline myself in not pulling or touching them during my sleep (I am not fully aware of what I do when I am in my deep sleep hey).
2- I get irritated when I see loose ends, thus I kinda flip n flap around it.
3- I don't know how one dries the lash when swimming coz I cannot. It just gets into my eyes. I need to pat the lashes against my towel then only I can open my eyes with ease.

Pro is that:
1- I know how inside the lashes can be done so that I will not feel irritated.
2- Definitely love the instant lush lashes

Please share with me on your thoughts regarding one-by-one and also the branches on each individual lashes, if you know what i mean. Would be glad to hear from you lovelies!! ^^

Also, comment me if you would like me to review the lash extensions at Beautilogy Wellness World. ;)

Thank you for reading :)

Life as a Waitress

I have never worked for so hard like I ever did before.

I am not poor nor am I super rich. But I am in general feeling contented with what I have.

Of course I did imagine what I could have done more and some lists of things that I hoped to achieve in a certain time.

I have been helping around a restaurant for about 2 weeks. The shop is officially opened on 20th September 2015, which is like the 5th day of the shop operating.

Guess what? Day 1 was just smooth coz there were 2 ppl preparing water, 1 cashier, around 2 ppl taking orders and another 2 at the kitchen.

The madness started on Day 2. Only 4 ppl operating the whole place. I take all orders and getting payment when the clients call. While most of the time two other person from the back would come help me with water and serving of rice, food and etc.

Day 4 & 5 was better coz there was extra 2-3 ppl helping around.

God.

Now only I realized sleeping for long hours and being able to eat 5 meals a week (especially eating maggie) is a luxury.

Never have I realized eating maggie to be a luxury...but... lol.

Also, being a waitress taking order and settle payment, I also have to check the account at the end of the day. Thus, lesser hours of sleep and I don't eat much the whole day till I get home. Talking about going to the toilet. It is 0. Not a chance will you be seeing me going to the toilet unless it involves washing my hands and also to check on my hair.

Arrrrghhh

I quit

I quit

I quit

This job just sucks the life out of me.
No fun. No me-time. No time to blog. No time to dress up and etc.

Not gonna continue the list as it goes on and on.

Anyone else feel the same like i do as a waitress in an understaffed place?
:/


[Sorry for ranting but hey, I have learnt a lot (good and bad) and all that makes me a better and stronger person. Thank god that I am out of it, for now. May all of us look back at the end of the day and count the little blessings in life. You may never know if those ridiculous moments and etc may bring laughter and smile to your face when you recall / talk about it! ^^ ]

Review: Rich Natural Lash Extensions at Pink Passion

Disclaimer: This review is not a sponsored review. Everything is paid by myself and all comments are honest. Beware of the vain selfies too!! (most of them are not edited while some of them had filters of beauty effect. I do apologize if any of my selfies scared you)    :)


Hello beautiful! How are you all doing?
I was quite busy with work thus am less active in blogging.
I do miss blogging, but yeah, will try to be more active in it for this coming month and so on. ^^
Was sooo excited to share with you this news!
(After 5 days later)
I finally had the chance to try out my first ever eyelash extension at Pink Passion Signature Salon.

"You cannot miss a color like that!" - just like what Ms. Leona wrote in her blog. This was what I kept in my mind when searching for the place blindly and only trusting my GPS.
One question I ask myself before deciding to get this extension is, "Why extend one when you can actually change different kind of eyelashes (or not at all) according to your mood / event?" My answer is, "I am lazy but I wanna achieve that natural no-make-up make up look."

Personally I have never tried wearing fake eyelashes myself. I did wear them though, with the help of others for wedding occasions or school occasions.
I do not really like the feeling of eyelashes that are about to fall off.
Felt that once and I just wanna hide my head in a hole.
After that, I never want to wear them.
However, I have this not-so-guilty pleasure- I buy fake eyelashes (5 pairs) once in a blue moon and then keep them under my drawer. They just looked so pretty. So I had to.

Thank god to the creator of eyelash extensions and its durable eyelash glue, now I can have beautiful fluttery lashes and caption my pic like this: "I woke up LIKE THIS!" :D


Before I start, I would like to thank Leona for her blog posts whereby her reader gets to use the voucher WITHOUT printing it!

I would also like to thank Tammy mamasan for recommending me to try my first eyelash extension at Pink Passion. ^^

Here I am sitting at the reception place...so pink. Just like its name.

Just chilling and feeling nervous at the same time.

Luckily the staff who attended me was friendly.

The conversation went on as follows:

Q: "Have you ever tried eyelash extensions?"
A: "No. First time."

Q: "Can I see your side view?"
*turn to the side with glasses on*

Q: "Then I cannot make a longer set of lashes for you as it will touch your glasses."
A: "Okay."

Q: "There is two choice for you since you do not make up that often (natural looking lashes). One is like a fan type (longer in centre ie. 10mm and shorter at both ends ie. 8mm) and another is like cat eye (longer at ends only).
A: "Fan type then since more natural, horr."

*lie down*

*tape on eyelid, stick eyelashes one by one*

Q: "You actually have long lashes."
A: "But it is straight.." 
>.<"

....
...
....
...

Tadaaaaa... (gonna spam you with my pics of vain selfies!)

I feel like my lashes have just turned over a new leaf. Lol. I know I am mean to say this to my lashes but...umm...oh well, no choice. It is a fact and look at me! I feel beautiful instantly (sorry for being so vain, but every girl has the right to being vain! Don't stop her!) without the need of make up, oh, and also a little cheat of "beauty effect" in my camera. Lol.

Even with me wearing the glasses, you can see the obvious thicker and longer lashes screaming for attention.! (this effect is more obvious from the up-close view)
Left vs. Right. Though she commented it was originally long, still, the difference is VERY obvious.

Some angle may not be that obvious in length but the thickness makes it seem like I wore eyeliner... <3

Lemme end this post with my most preferred selfie of the day,
What do you think? Pretty right? If you would like to be effortlessly pretty , save that voucher below and quote my name! This is my bare face selfie with "beauty effect" coz of my super severe dark eye circle.
As for the touch up, I was reminded to redeem it for free WITHIN ONE WEEK after my extension was done (if you forgot and wanted to do touch up after that one week, rugi-lah you, coz' it won't be free anymore). Do Not Forget!!

Oh, here is the voucher, just screen capture or flash it & quote my name to get 65% off your FIRST eye lash extension done at Pink Passion. ^^

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Progress of the lashes
(& vain selfies!)

day 2 (17102015)

day 3 (18102015)
This happened.
X.X
Actually horr, I think it is my fault coz I do somehow recall a slight pain when I was sleeping dead during my semi-deep sleep.

And this is how I look (front chunk of one of the eye is missing)
OMG. Quickly made an appointment, luckily there are free slot at 4pm.
My eyes were also slightly irritated.

Feeling more refreshed after the touch up.

On 19th October I attended a wedding dinner (just in time, phew!),
looks natural horr?though my skin is imperfect, I think I look alright.

On 21st this is how my lashes look...
Actually, the front chunk of one of the eyes was missing again. So I kinda pulled my other side of the extension that was also already loose. I know my action of pulling isn't advisable but, to look pretty, I just had to. Honestly, my inner ends were very prone to be loose Idk why. Do you guys experience this? I already started using my Bioderma cleansing water coz they say CANNOT CANNOT use OIL based product.
That is all for now. Will update again when it falls and when I remove them.

Oh, for the removal of eyelashes, you actually need to pay RM50 or RM60.
After my calculation, it is actually worthy!! WHY?
(don't forget about all the costs of eyeliner and mascaras!!!)
For the extension done with the voucher, it costs RM88 (np is RM258!!).
In Leona's post, she did mention that "BUY 1 Free 1" refers to the touch up. And that touch ups normally cost up to RM160.
So, it is a DEAL, right?

Think no more and reserve a slot now girls!!
Save the voucher and quote my name to experience your first ever eyelash extension (Rich Natural Lash Extensions) done at Pink Passion, BEFORE NOVEMBER 30th!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you still need to consider, let me tell you what I think about these lash extensions,

Pro:
No more rubbing of eyes
Thus, less wrinkle formation
More awake eyes 
Bigger looking eyes
Sexy looking eyes (depends on the kind of eyelashes applied!)
Time to get ready is reduced by A Lot!
Also save cost on mascaras & eyeliners!!

Cons:
It may be weird for first 2 days (but you'll get used to it)
Cannot rub eyes anymore (my love-hate relationship)
Cannot use my cream removers that I got from my HK haul (nvm, can use after I remove 'em lashes)
It's temporary (3-4 weeks max!, so gotta become less appealing again...)

Annecy Innocent White Brightening Bubble Mask

Hello Lovelies, it has been quite some time and here I am back with another skincare review.

Any of you heard of Annecy before?
I got it from my HK trip last year.
Big sis tried and tested the sample which amazes us so we quickly got it without a second thought (and also because I have never own a bubble mask before, lol).

This is the packaging. Simple and neat. The cap is slightly dirty due to the nature of the nozzle.

Brand: Mannings (known as Guardian in Malaysia)
Line: Annecy
Item: Brightening bubble mask
Content: 50ml
Claims: 500x hydration, whitening in 14 days
Cost: around HKD49.90 or HKD59.90

"Pale and Clear Skin All In One"

*Soft foamy texture, whitens skin and clears blackheads
*Exfoliates dead skin cells, brightens and nourishes dull and uneven skin tones
*Minimizes pores and clears skin

See the foam? It actually increases over time and decreases after that.

Directions for use:
Dispense desired amount onto palms.
Apply on cleansed face and gently massage until bubbles are formed.
After 10 - 15 minutes, rinse well with water or cleanser.
Due to product nature, it is normal that small amount of bubbles will form at the nozzle after use.

Key Ingredients:
*Double Hyaluronic Acid creates a moisturising barrier and penetrates deep into skin, hydrating your skin from inside out
*Arbutin reduces melanin formation and helps lighten spots and whiten skin after 14 consecutive days
*Black tea enzyme brighten skin, leaving it with a rosy, healthy inner glow
*Luxurious natural black pearl extract from Tahiti enhances skin rejuvenation, turning back the clock
(FREE from GMO products or mineral oil)

Just being vain and pose while trying this bubble mask for the first time

First Experience:
So COOL! It bubbles up and I feel like I turned into a white ELMO.
After rinsing it off it was, O M G. Skin was feeling tight and dry.
Honestly, I was feeling scared to try the second time.
So sad that this product doesn't suit my skin.
The claim of being hydrating is not at all seen in my skin. Needless to say, claims like whitening and removal of blackheads are not seen upon first use.

Rating:
2/5

Repurchase?
Sad to say, NO, my skin just do not work with the product

Recommendation:
Probably oily skin user as I currently have a combination skin of normal to dry skin with slightly oily T zone (I already experienced tightness and dryness, so if you have a similar skin like mine, I would not recommend you to try it!!)

Review: MDM 3D Breast Enhancement

Hello lovelies. The topic today might be a little awkward but yeah, I have been trying several products for breast enhancement. Never did I try those that require me to eat it. If you are into consumption kinda stuff, there is this blog that talks about F Cup Cookies!

Let's jump right into this new product I tried 4 months back. FYI, I got it from a seller I saw on Facebook. Her name is Loke Mei Yan.

Got it for RM180 inclusive of postage fees.

Payment made on              : 27/05/2015 (Wednesday)
She received payment on  : 28/05/2015 (Thursday)
Item posted on                   : 29/05/2015 (Friday)
Item reached door step on : 01/06/2015 (Monday)

Quite a nice seller and fast shipping, thank you!

The box is carefully wrapped in sealed clear plastic. Once it is teared open, I can already smell something sweet but not overwhelming.

Products received are in good condition. It comes with a pamphlet that tells you about the product (eg. who should use it, contents, how to use and etc)

Great start for JUNE ^^

Pamphlet's How To:
First apply Firming Massage Cream, massage 5-10 minutes.
Then directly apply Breast Cream, massage 5-20 minutes.

**However, bottle says differently, so I shall trail and error and settle with the one of my convenience**

My How To:
Start with Firming Massage Cream (smaller bottle) first. In the morning I used two pumps for each breast and massage till dry. At night, I used four pumps for each breast and massage till dry. Moving on to the Breast Cream (larger tube), a little goes a long way. Initially I did not know and pressed a two big 50 cents size or more. But it was sooooo tiring that my arms are sore. Lol. So, I think one 50 cents size is enough. for each breast. Also massage till try.  ^^
P.S. Do not over massage 'coz tiny stuff will form like when you are rubbing for dead skins, if you know what I mean.

Left: M.D.M. Firming Massage Cream 100ml
Right: M.D.M. Breast Cream 180ml

The Firming Massage Cream is pure herbal extract (Pueraria Mirifica, Plant Estrogen, Soy Isoflavones and Deoxymiroestrol), flavour with a slightly Chinese medicinal smell.
The Beast Cream helps in whitening, pink, tender and elastic as well as nourish your breast and nipples with Evenimg Primrose, Macadamia Oil. Olive Oil, Ginseng and other fruit goodness.


Effectiveness?
I tried the product for almost 30 days consecutively. After about 10-14 days I feel that my breast are firmer but regarding the increasing of size.....hmm....just maybe a 1 cm. It then will not increase anymore. I did not ask the seller further coz I just think that I should just let my breast be what it is as naturally as possible, for now. The seller also told me that in order to maintain the result one would need to use the product for 2 months time.

Repurchase?
Maybe after my first pregnancy (very very long time from now, lol) because I think that the massage and cream routine does help my blood circulation and probably rectify my saggy breasts after giving birth. And people says that most boobs will increase in size after pregnancy. As for now, I will just love my petite boobs :)

Review: SKINLITE Exfoliating Foot Mask

Before I say anything , I would like to clarify that this mask has already expired when I tried it. Lets see if it still works or not! ^^

Please ignore my stubbornness in trying something that has already expired!
Is it just me? Anyone else curios about its effectiveness? ^^




Introduction:
SKINLITE Exfoliating Foot Mask is a foot exfoliant plus treatment filled in a pair of wearable mask sheets. Put on the mask as you would your socks. It removes all calluses over time, visibly smoothing your feet within 2 weeks. Papaya, lemon, apple, orange, and other natural botanical extracts remove calluses while Chamomile extract calms freshly exfoliated skin.
*product is from Korea*

Content:
20ml of two treatment masks sheet

How to use:
(A short pictorial & Detailed 5 Steps Instructions as below)

This is how it looks like

Just cut along the dotted line

Slip your feet in between the inner layers of moisture

It kinda still bothers me when I walk in it. Lol. But no choice, 'coz I just had to do some stuff while waiting for the time to pass ^^

1) Using scissors cut open the package along the dotted line.
2) Thoroughly cleanse your feet and wear the masks.
3) Remove after 60 to 90 minutes and rinse off with water.
4) Calluses start peeling off in 4 to 7 days after use.
5) Nearly all calluses will be removed in a further 3 to 5 days depending on their thickness. Do not use a callus remover or pick on calluses when they start peeling off.

Cautions:
1) Avoid using on eczema, injured, irritated or sunburned skin.
2) Stop using and ask a doctor if
-skin becomes red, swollen, itchy during use
-above symptoms persists after use
3) Before use, apply a small amount on skin for signs of allergic reactions.
4) This product is exclusively for use on feet. Do not use other than indicated on this label.
5) This product contains propylene glycol. Do not use if you are sensitive or allergic to the substance.
6) Keep out of eyes. If eye contact, rinse with water.
7) Avoid storing under direct sunlight or high&low temperature. Keep away from the reach of children.

Ingredients:
Alcohol, Water (Aqua), Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Isopropyl Alcohol, Urea, Glycolic Acid, Betaine, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Fruit Extract, Triclosan, Salicylic Acid, Menthol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance (Parfum)

Pros:
By day2 there is already slight peeling but not that much. It does what it says about the calluses. Peeling gotta be removed "manually" when I rub both my feet on one another alternately. Still good but to what I was told of the non-expired effect, it peels automatically !!

Cons:
Coz it is expired the smell is eww. Like lemon air freshener that's been placed for too long
It removes my nail polish abit. >.<

**Fyi, only do this foot mask when you foot nails do not have any nail polish (i do not know about gel polishes though)**

Repurchase:
Maybe. Since I have not tried the non-expired ones truly. But. I am still very very afraid of the peeling and ugliness during the process. Lol.

Product Empties #2

Disclaimer: All items below were purchased by myself and whatever I wrote was based on the reaction of my skin to the product. Everyone's skin may react differently, so do try the product if you want and if you dare to. :) My current skin condition is of combination and dry skin with a slightly oily T zone.
  • Makeup Remover

Neutrogena Deep Clean Makeup Cleansing Water (200ml)


I cannot tell you how much I love water base makeup remover though I do not apply make up as consistently as I would have. It is really effective when it comes to remove the dirt at the pores of my face after the whole day outside and leaving my skin feeling refreshed and moisturised. Not oily at all too. The downside for me is that i dislike the smell. It smells like a mix of candy + naphthalene solution. But, my brother is okay with the smell.
Repurchase: No. Will try out other cleansing water in the market with bearable scent for me. ^^

CYBER COLORS Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (59ml)


Love how it easily removes my make up, even the waterproof ones.
Repurchase: yes.

  • Toner

Haruhada Collagen (500ml)


Purchased at Sasa for RM39.90. It is affordable for its quantity and price however I was stuck with it for quite some time before I am able to try out new toners out in the market. >.<" Also, I do not like it that much as I do not think that it provides me sufficient moisture. It also leaves the slightly sticky feeling.
Repurchase: No. Will try out other products ^^

  • Serum

AMPM Skincare Super Triple HA Serum  (30ml)


Big love for the product. It absorbs into my skin quite fast and improves the moisture level of my skin as I do not need to apply as much product onto my face as compared to that on the first day of using the product. No sticky feeling too! It has a light scent (I have written a full review here).
Repurchase: YES!

Syn-ake Power 10 Formula (30ml)


Lasts 3-4 months of usage, about the same for AMPM Skincare Super Triple HA Serum. I love this product too as it helps to reduce the frequency of acne popping out. It leaves my skin moisturised especially when I went to China at a 10 degrees Celsius (in the mountain area). It also have this slight perfum-ish smell which I am okay with it. ^^
Repurchase: Yes. Probably will try out others of the same line too.

  • Moisturiser

Neutrogena Oil-free Moisture for combination skin (118ml)


Super love the product as I used it to massage my face. Totally emptied the product & would recommend it if you don't mind the slight sticky feeling. It did not break me out at all.
Repurchase: Yes. Still would like to discover more moisturisers out there!  .

FRUIT OF THE EARTH Aloe Vera 100% Gel (170g)


I dare not use this on my wound as my sister said it stings her when she applied on her sun burnt skin. I have tried to apply on my peeled skin too and it did sting me. So I guess there's some content of alcohol or something in there though it says on the packaging that there is "No Alcohol".
Repurchase: NO. Did not even finish it.

  • Mist

My Beauty Diary Rose & White Peony Brightening Mist (60ml)


Bought in 2012. Love the smell definitely BUT I do not think it brightens my skin at all but maybe a little moisturised.
Repurchase: No.

AVENE Thermal Spring Water (50g)


Scentless & no alcohol. Super love its calming properties especially for calming itchy skin and reduce redness. Also use it for setting my make up when I feel like moisturising my skin for a bit. ^^
Repurchase: Yes.

  • Eye care

NARUKO Marjoram & Lavender Brightening Eye Cream EX (15g)


I got this as a birthday self-request gift from my dear siblings. Just can say that I really do not like it. I think it increased the number of oil seeds at my eye bag area. >.<"
Repurchase: No.

  • Night Jelly

NARUKO Taiwan Magnolia Brightening & Firming Night Gelly EX (with spatula) (15ml)


Totally not for my skin as it stings me after 5 minutes of application. I do not really like the smell too as it is like a mix of parfum-ish and natural lemongrass-like smell...maybe magnolia smells like that? lol. Absorption into skin was quite fast but it does leave a sticky feeling which is a big no-no for me.
Repurchase: No.

Etude House HA Facial Cleanser

Hello lovelies, this week I would like to share on a cleanser that I have tried and tested for like 1 or 2 months plus... This post has been sitting in my draft for quite some time.

Let's jump right in ^^

Ta-daaa

Photo credits to my big sister coz I cannot find mine at the moment.
Anyway, this is a cream type of cleanser that is easy to lather. ^^ BUT, continuing reading below to know what we think ^^

Why buy?
It was on some BUY 1 FREE 1 promotion when we walked pass the store while shopping in Palm Mall, Seremban. Plus it says Hyaluronic Acid on the packaging which means it should provide enough moisture for my slightly dry skin (only from time to time I will have dry skin, lol).

Progress on usage?
It was good for the first week when using it. Skin feels so clean and the smell is nice, slightly tight as the time progress tho. Cannot really describe it but it was refreshing and not overwhelming :)
So I have decided to continue with it.
After a month plus or two of almost continuous usage of this product, my face has become rather dry. There were bumps like thing and yes I don't understand why....it is not supposed to be dry right since there is HA in it.... ×.×

My nose, cheeks, & lips are more frequently dry and patchy.

So yeah, it is now sitting somewhere on the desk collecting dust.

Pros:
Nice refreshing smell
Easy to lather
Easy to control amount required

Cons:
Drying for my skin
Too large thus not travel friendly
It is not easily lathered when I have already dispensed a small amount into travel friendly jars. >.< or did I use too less thus I cannot lather it like how I did effortlessly when dispensing it right from the tube?

Repurchase:
No. It is not hydrating enough for my skin. Just found one facial cleanser that I have been enjoying this one month plus ^^

Suitable for who?
Maybe oily skin? I don't know. Coz' as a combination skin like mine is already drying, and my sister with dry skin..some more la terrible (This is her experience of using it, here) !! If you would like to try this product, go ahead, 'coz what don't work for our skin may work for you! Good luck dearies! ^^

Please share with me your experience when using this Etude House HA Facial Cleanser ^^

Have a good day ;)
