Eucerin Aquaporin Mist Spray Review - Pamper Your Thirsty Skin with Spray of Hyaluronic Acid

Eucerin Aquaporin Mist Spray
RM21.90 (50ml) | RM45.90 (150ml)

As mentioned before, I'm a huge fans of mist spray. Face mist is now an important part of skin care routine and I'm truly in love with the cooling and refreshing sensation it gives. I always work under the sun so mist spray is my daily essential to lock in moisture as an effort to maintain young and dewy skin. I own mist spray from several brands such as Avene, a;t Fox and Uriage and I never get tired to explore more mist spray from different brands. I have been using Eucerin Aquaporin Mist Spray recently and this is an innovative mist spray that emphasizes on longer lasting hydration with hyaluronic acid.

Baby Shower Personalized Gifting Ideas with Gifts Less Ordinary

When I was a student, birthday party is the occasion that everyone looks forward the most. This is the time that we get to gather, dress up together and of course, go to shopping malls and choose presents for the birthday girl/boy. I love preparing presents for my family and friends. I truly enjoy the process of choosing the presents, hand-wrapping them in nice gift paper and finally, send the present to the person, with a handwritten card attached. The entire process is incredibly satisfying and therapeutic. However, preparing gifts can be stressful sometime, especially when you don't know what to get for the person. I still remember how I struggled in choosing the right present for Million Mar's daughter in conjunction with her 1st birthday celebration. I just don't know what to get! To be honest, I get tremendously stressful when I get the invitation to attend baby shower or baby's birthday celebration, I seriously don't know what to buy for the babies! Excuse my ignorance, I don't have much contact with babies and I feel like a total idiot whenever I am browsing through babies' products and merchandise. Imagine the awkward moment when the dress/shoes you buy for the baby is too big or too small, that somehow shows that the gifter is insincere when I am actually not. At the age of 26, many of my friends had said their vows at church and I can foresee that I will need to go through more gifting struggle in near future. I was googling for some personalized gifts for baby shower the other day and I bumped into a really awesome website that provide all sorts of personalized gifts for baby shower, everything is super cute and unique!


Gift Less Ordinary is a one-stop gifting website that focus on personalized gifting solutions and they searched far and wide for the very best products and brands to provide to the customers. They are actually a marketplace for different shops, so the products you purchase are sent directly from their wonderful Global Partners. It may be that you have ordered a number of goods from multiple partners so the delivery time for each product will vary depending upon location, item and whether personalisation is required. All delivery times are clearly displayed on the partner’s product page. 

When I'm doing online shopping, I'm worried that the shipping fee will too costly. Therefore, I'm really happy to know that Gift Less Ordinary provides FREE shipping to all Singapore addresses, yeay I love free shipping! Whether you order from one or multiple partners, shipping is always included in the price displayed, so the price you see is the price you pay. This price also covers any import charges, so you never need to worry about additional fees upon delivery, how awesome is this!

Unboxing & Review: Althea Total Brightening Box

My life is full of dilemma. I hate-hate-hate sunlight but I work under the sunlight, how ironic is this. #engineerlife When I say that I work under the sunlight, I mean I’m literally working at roof top and job site without shelter from 8am to 6pm (or even later!). I’m just another typical Chinese girl who sets fair and bright skin as ultimate life goal. I’m not being racist, I just like my skin to be fair that’s all. As fair as I seem to be, this doesn’t come easy and cheap, I put in a lot of efforts in skin care to make myself looks good. Therefore, I literally jumped from my seat when Althea launched Total Brightening Box, this is what I have been waiting for!

Eversoft Tomato Micellar Cleansing Water | Yuzu 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner

I believe that Eversoft is a skin care brand that every Malaysian girls is familiar with, we literally grow up using Clean & Clear and Eversoft products. I still remember that when I went camping with my girl friends during high school, all of us were using skin care products from these two brands, especially Eversoft's facial cleanser. Growing up from teenager to young adult, I'm exposed to more skin care brands and I'm forever seeking for products that suit my skin the best. And I, forgot to look back on the goodness that my old tubes of Eversoft's facial cleanser that once kept my face clean and fresh. I was shopping the other day and was surprised by the brand new look of Eversoft products, they look really modern now! They even came out with micellar cleansing water and I really want to try it out. 


The new Eversoft cleanser and cleansing water are perfect for quick cleansing, at affordable prices yet amazing result. I still remember how Eversoft saved me from bankrupt when I was a student because all of their products are incredibly affordable. However, Eversoft never compromises on the quality that their products do perform well at the friendly price tag.

Shopping via Lazada Malaysia App & Pay by MOLPay/MOLPay Cash

If you don't already know, Lazada Malaysia has launched their very own mobile app and you can now enjoy the shopping spree over your smartphone. Groceries, electronic gadgets, men & ladies fashion, beauty products and household products, they are all just a click away. I don't know about you, but I'm personally very thrilled to know that Lazada Malaysia has launched their mobile app. I spend a lot of time on commuting so I'm delighted to know that I can shop on Lazada Malaysia anytime, anywhere. This also means that I won't miss out any of the good deals and crazy promotions! You can download Lazada Malaysia app from App Store / Google Play store, I just downloaded mine over the last weekend and had fun exploring the app. To my surprise, Lazada Malaysia app is actually very user-friendly, easy to use and I have not experienced any bugs or app crashing issue so far.

Summer Is Here! Let's Have A Mangotella Spree at Caffe Bene, City Square JB

Living in a tropical country lying on the Equator, we basically do not get the chance to enjoy the change of seasons. All we have is hot and humid weather all year long, which provides us with concrete reason to enjoy more bingsu. Recently, Caffe Bene Malaysia has launched their summer seasonal menu themed "Mangotella", a menu combining sweet refreshing mango and rich indulgent Nutella.


Beware, this is a photo-heavy post that is going to make you drool! 

I was really excited to try the Mangotella series dessert out because I'm a hardcore mango lover. If you happen to find this review a little biased, I can assure you that yes this is a biased review because I'm already in love with the dessert even before I dig them in. Tell me who can resist a big bowl of mango bingsu drizzled with rich Nutella?

Libresse Let's Get Real Launch with Adibah Noor

Everyone has blind spots. We all go about doing things everyday out of habit and accepting things as they are without being aware if they are REAL or NOT. There’s your friend who exclaims, “Well, I don’t remember seeing this restaurant – and I have driven through here like a million times!” Or the colleague who believes that she is “on top of things” when she has clearly missed out on a few spelling errors in a document after the 15th draft. Then, there are the sanitary pad ads with girls wearing white, laughing and dancing, skipping around with joy – but, have you ever wondered how realistic these behaviours are when women are having their period? 

The hardest thing about blind spots is that we don’t even realize that we have them…until someone points them out for us. So, how ARE “blind spots” on these ads impacting us?

众多怪梦中的其中一小个

昨天晚上做了个很可怕的梦。

我推开门,步入一间黑漆漆的房间。中间有盏刺眼的日光灯,就像电影里常见的梦境现场。躲在黑暗角落里的,都是我曾经非常熟悉的朋友和亲人。他们一看见我,一个个都涌上前来说“我们等你等了好久,你终于来了”。

“什么?你们为什么等我?我们都在这里做什么?”

没有人回答我。

“他们说你是被杀死的,可是却一直找不到凶手,也没有证据,什么都没有。所以你真的是被杀死的吗?是谁杀了你?他为什么杀你?你死后都去了哪里啊?怎么那么久才过来?我们等你等了好几十年呢!”

“什么?我死了?!”

“早就死了啊!26岁时就死了,尸体是在森林里被发现的,警察都说是被谋杀的。所以是真的吗?你当年真的被杀了吗?”

我很努力很努力地回想,但不管怎么想,脑袋里的最后一块记忆就是一个再平凡不过的上班周日。我还记得我特别早关灯睡觉,睡前还从阳台收了衣服。我怎么就这样死了呢?怎么会死在森林呢?是谁杀了我?怎么可以死在26岁呢?我什么都还没做啊!我死了之后爸爸妈妈一定很伤心,而且我还要是被杀死的,他们一定很难过,养得那么大的女儿就这样没了。我越想越难过,一边想就一边掉眼泪。

“所以你们也和我一样,都死了吗?可是为什么你们全都没变老,你们的样子还是很年轻啊!” 我尝试厘清思绪,心里偷偷希望这只是一场梦,或是场恶作剧。

“因为你的记忆只到26岁啊,所以你看到的我们就是60年前的样子。我们当然都死了,不然在这里干嘛?”

后来我就只是不停地哭,真的太难过了,一想到来不及孝顺的爸爸妈妈我就觉得受不了,眼泪一直掉个不停。哭着哭着,就从梦中惊醒过来。

还好只是个梦,真的幸好只是梦而已。非常感恩,感谢所有看不见的力量让我还健康平安地活着。我从小就有很多奇怪的顾虑和隐忧。每次睡得太深太沉,我就会感到害怕,害怕睡着睡着我就醒不来了;害怕万一夜里发生什么事我也无力防抗,来不及逃生。可最近我偏偏睡得格外沉,夜半的大雨都没办法让我醒过来,所以我才会做这样的梦吗?婆婆和外婆都是在梦里离开人世的,以前我觉得那是个美好的离开方式,但后来又觉得这样无预警地离开非常不公平,好像还没做好准备就得离开了。但生命这种事从来都不在我们的掌控之内,所以想做的事情就要去执行、想要表达的感受就不要隐藏。对人对事都要尽自己的全力,不要留遗憾,不要总是到了最后才说“要是当时我这样这样那该有多好”,因为任何时候都有可能是最后的时分。上班之后我总是觉得累,有时候会变得懒散且容易将就妥协,或许这个梦是个启示,想要告诉我这样混混沌沌地过日子是不行的。好吧我知道了,也被这个梦给吓死了,接下来的日子我会好好生活,努力在每个角色上尽力做到最好。

今天就这样,希望今晚能有个美梦。



Love,

Uriage Eau Thermale French Skincare: Thermale Water, Micellaire Thermale Water & Crème Lavante


It has been a really long while since I last received pretty hot pink boxes from HiShop. One important feature that stands HiShop out of the other online beauty stores is that it carries many beauty brands that are unavailable in Malaysia. Recently, HiShop has added Uriage to the wide range of beauty brands that they offer.


Since its creation in 1992, the Uriage brand has been meeting the needs of sensitive skin thanks to its internationally renowned dermatological expertise. I have tried thermal water, micellaire thermale water & cleanser from Uriage, let's scroll down and read my verdicts on these products.

Althea Vitamin Box: When Happiness Only Costs Me $39

Hello guys! I'm extraordinarily excited to compose this post because guess what, I got myself an Althea beauty box, like finally! I have been eyeing on Althea's value-for-money curated beauty box since their launch back in October 2016 but unfortunately, it seems like I'm always a little slower than the other customers because the boxes are forever out of stock when I check my cart out. Can you imagine my frustration? These unbelievably cheap beauty boxes come in limited quantity so they are selling like hot cakes, only the fast fingers can bring them home. When I received newsletter from Althea regarding the launch of Vitamin Box, I told myself that I need to get this box after so many times of failure in checking my cart out, my determination is unprecedentedly strong!

And yea, I'm now a proud owner of Althea Vitamin Box! *fireworks*

The Plant Base: Nature Solution Hydrating Bamboo Water & Nature Solution Skin Essence

I'm a huge fans of Korean beauty products because they are affordable and they work well on Asians' skin. There are so many Korean beauty brands out in the market and I never get tired and bored trying them out. Established brands such as Laneige, Etude House, Innisfree, Skin Food and The Face Shop never let me down, and at the same time, new brands never fail to surprise me. I have seen The Plant Base products at Watson outlet and I thought their skin care range is interesting. Further studying the products, I found that it's a skin care brand from Korea! I'm going to give them a try, I told myself. 


Bamboo water? I was immediately attracted! Despite being an irrational consumer who emphasizes on aesthetic pleasure, I love how simple and clinical-looking the product packaging is, it somehow gives me reassurance that the product is safe, natural and organic. Well, this is exactly what The Plant Base promises their customers.


The Plant Base insists only hypoallergenic and high performance products formulated with only natural plants and certified organic ingredients. They have been doing a wonderful job in exploring and utilizing the skin care benefits in natural plants.

陪我走过无数路的一双鞋


今年大扫除的最大壮举:我终于狠下心肠,把这双陪我走过无数日子的帆布鞋给丢了。


不舍得啊~


这双百搭耐穿又时尚的帆布鞋陪了我很久,没错的话是大学1st year那年买的,整整六年了!偶尔会穿它去上课,在KL乱走的时候也穿它,尤其是去Bukit Bintang那带逛街时肯定会穿上它,有follow我照片的朋友应该都见过这双帆布鞋。


后来也穿着它去了韩国和台湾。
一个人在韩国和台湾的日子,我常望着脚上的这双鞋发呆
看着它慢慢开始出现裂痕、裂缝,雪白的鞋带也渐渐变得肮脏

说到望地上这事,我不管是走路还是等待时都喜欢望着地上
不是大家想象中没自信之类的,就纯粹是个习惯
所以常常会错过擦肩的熟人


这啊,简直就是陪我上山下海的战鞋,很有革命情感的你知道吗?尤其是一个人在韩国台湾的日子,常常都觉得有这双鞋真好,好耐穿。当它真的坏得不能再穿的时候,我还硬是把它收在鞋橱里,不舍得把它给丢掉。等过了一段日子,我做好要丢弃它的心理准备后,才依依不舍地把它送进垃圾桶里。


鞋子你看,平时忙得没时间发文的我竟然抽空为你写了一篇小短文,谢谢你这些年无私的服务,我真的好喜欢你啊!



Love,

Korean Skin Care Review: Gobdigoun

Happy Chinese New Year! How's your new year holiday? I had a splendid one with a lot of food and great moments with the loved ones. During this joyous festive season, I have tried out a new range of skin care from Gobdigoun


Gobdigoun Skin Care Range
Water Balloon Aqua Mask, Placenta Power Mask, Crocodile Oil Hand Cream, Placenta Power Ageing Corrector Eye Cream and Placenta Power Aging Corrector Soap Bar-Wrinkle Care

Thanks to the strong and powerful Hallyu wave, Korean skin care brands are springing up like mushrooms after the rain. There are so many new brands and products being launched in the market every season but it seems like everyone is able to catch with latest trend effortlessly. Not many of us from Malaysia and Singapore has come across with Gobdigoun, so do I. This is my very first try on Gobdigoun skin care range and apparently they are gems, the hidden one. I was sent a box of Gobdigoun skin care products and I was amazed by the luxurious, opulent and elegant packaging of their products. Let's have a closer look at the packaging.

Swissvita Serum Review: Mandelic Acid Perfect Ratio Complex Serum, Micrite 3D All Use Anti-Spot Serum & Micrite 3D All Use Whitening Serum

Swissvita Serum

I learnt about Swissvita Eye Cream from Jennifer and its special aluminium sealed tube design piqued my interest towards this brand. As fas as I concern, aluminium sealed tube is a very popular packaging for medication and adhesive products due to its excellent ability in preventing product contamination. I have seen all sorts of packaging for skin care and beauty products, but not an aluminium sealed tube. So after reading Jennifer's review on Swissvita eye cream, I googled and learnt more about this brand and found that Swissvita is a brand focusing on aesthetic medicine. They sell a wide varieties of skin care products and what excites me the most is that all of their products are very reasonably priced! I tried 3 of their serums which are Mandelic Acid Perfect Ratio Complex Serum, Micrite 3D All Use Anti-Spot Serum & Micrite 3D All Use Whitening Serum respectively.

Swissvita Mandelic Acid Perfect Ratio Complex Serum
RM 110/50mL

Can you believe that a 50mL bottle of Swissvita Mandelic Acid Perfect Ratio Complex Serum is only sold at RM110? What a steal! Its RRP is RM190 but they're having special promotion now so you get to buy this Mandelic Acid at an unbelievably cheap price.

健康零食-低温风干果干


我们家是零食大军,家里永远都有一堆冰淇淋、薯片、巧克力、饼干以及糖果的库存。绝对不是在开玩笑,我妈妈还会定时添货,确保我们无时无刻都有零食解馋。(其实因为她是家里最喜欢吃零食的人所以都很主动地去买哈哈哈,但自从我开始自己赚钱之后我很对零食库存做出了很大的贡献>.<)什么乱七八糟的零食我们都吃,便宜的贵的外国的本地的,反正就是买不停吃不停就对了。唯一不曾尝试过的就是健康的零食。写到这里我自己也忍不住笑了一笑,这世上会有健康的零食吗?之前我也认为零食都没多少营养价值。是有健康的饼干啦,但健康的薯片啊巧克力啊要去哪里找?去年在Garden Ritz吃阿根廷炭烤料理时机缘巧合接触到自家手工制作的低温风干果干,觉得非常特别,所以今天就来和大家分享啦~


夹炼链带的包装设计十分方便,收纳保存都不是问题。我尝试了4种果干,左边起是苹果、granola、梨子和香蕉。这些果干都来自Unparalleled Grace,由一位妈妈亲手洗切水果并以低温风干。注意哦,是风干而不是烘干。由于低温风干并不涉及加热,因此能够保留高达96%的营养成份。低温风干的制程繁复且耗时,所以老板娘都不接急单,也不囤货,所有的果干都是在收到订单后才开始制作的。标榜着无防腐剂、无色素、无味精,这些果干不是健康的零食是什么?

Let's Pop in Some Magi Planet Popcorn!

Chinese New Year is just around the corner, how time flies! I thought I just unboxed my Christmas presents and it's CNY now? Oh noooo! I spent all my weekends in January in different shopping malls to get myself some CNY clothes and of course, CNY goodies such as cookies, decorations, flowers, bakwa (chinese dried meat) and hampers. Pineapple tarts, peanut cookies, kuih kapit, love letters and almond cookies, oh these evil cookies are calling for me! This year, we added some extraordinary CNY snacks to our table: Magi Planet Popcorn


I think these should be enough to serve our guests? Or not?

Clinelle Pure Swiss Hydra Calm Serum


Today we are going to talk about serum! I always have 2 bottles of serum with me, with one serving for whitening purpose and another one for hydrating effect. I personally find serum the best way to give a boost to my tired skin, especially when I need to attend important meetings or appointments the next day. There are several criteria that I will pay attention to when choosing serum: viscosity, effectiveness and of course, affordability. I do not want my serum to be too watery or too sticky. There was a time that I tried out a watery serum because I thought such consistency will facilitate in the absorbance of the product by skin but all I got was a whole mess. It is so hard to get the right amount of serum in one pump and I really hate it when the serum accidentally drips onto my dressing table. It's so wasteful and dirty. Ever since then, I become really particular when choosing the right serum - it mustn't be watery!
