Cheaper Alternatives to Guierang Sanitary Pads Review: Artemisia Foot SPA, Sofy Extra Dry and Extra Slim 0.1 Pads


It's been a while since I share my thoughts on Guierang sanitary pads. I loved Guierang a lot, as they use the herbal ingredient artemisia (or Chinese mugwort) as one of the ingredients in their products. However, the cost of getting these Guierang pads is also a lot higher compared to those local brands. As Gmarket raises its shipping fees recently, it is no longer practical to import Guierang from Korea as well. So in my today's review, I'm gonna share with you guys some cheaper alternatives to these Guierang artemisia care.

Review: Some By Mi Miracle Cleansing Bar and Miracle Serum


Suddenly, you see Some by Mi Miracle Toner almost everywhere. Everyone seems to be raving about it, or selling it on the Instagram, Qoo10 and Shopee. So, as the saying goes, curiosity kills a cat, my wallet is bleeding now as I couldn’t resist the temptation to get my husband a bottle of the Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum and its associated Cleansing Bar.

Now, let’s jump to the review right away!


Review: Belif Rose Gemma Concentrate Oil



I tried to keep the best for the last, until the moment where I forgot about it totally up to a point where it is near expiry. So here it is the very precious and beautiful Belif Rose Gemma Concentration Oil that I kept until I almost forgot about using it!



I bought this at Belif road show in 2017. It was not pre-planned but I couldn’t resist the scent and beautiful packaging of this little baby so I was lured to bring home one. It is not cheap though. Each retails for RM260 for only 30ml. It has a shorter shelf life of only one year.

My Lifestyle Story and A Review on IKEA Istad Recyclable Plastic Bags


I think I will post a bit less on skincare items now, and maybe add in some insights and thoughts on lifestyle-related items, as my preferences and thoughts change as I “age”. I have moved on from a super skincare junkie, to someone who focuses more on quality and performance. I try to listen more to my skin, as well as my internal health.

Today, I want to talk about these babies I curated and loved from IKEA. Let’s dive right in if you are curious too!

Review: iUnik Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner, Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum and Centella Calming Gel Cream


I am in the pursuit of minimalist lifestyle recently, and coincidentally iUNIK happens to send me their products which are also very much based on the idea of minimalism. Now let’s present the minimalism skincare iUNIK, which attempts to pursue skin happiness through the simplest packaging and ingredients, without being overwhelmed by fancy ingredients and colourful designs.

iUNIK sent me three products to try out, all of them picked and chose by me:

iUNIK Vitamin Hyaluronic Acid Vitalizing Toner
iUNIK Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum
iUNIK Centella Calming Gel Cream

Let’s look at them one by one.

Review: Acwell Aqua Clinity Cream


I got this Acwell Aqua Clinity Cream a while ago when Althea launched the brand on its website. I loved the Acwell Bubble-Free pH Balancing Cleanser a lot, and thinks that it is one of the best soothing cleansers that I ever used, so I am pretty excited to give this a try!

Review: Dr. Wu Intensive Hydrating Essence Toner With Hyaluronic Acid


I used to say that there isn't much difference between Dr. Wu Hydrating Toner and Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion, but not anymore now. Dr. Wu changes my thought on its Hyaluronic Acid completely after my last visit to Taiwan in May. Now, I think this Intensive Hydrating Essence Toner With Hyaluronic Acid definitely deserves more attention that it does! And I would say that it is worth the extra amount of money you are paying for, compared to Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion!

Comparison Review of 9 Jayjun Masks that I Tried


I was on Jayjun mask mood lately. I guess I tried out at least 9 different Jayjun masks recently so I thought of doing a comparison review on all the Jayjun masks that I've tried. This will also serve as a useful guide for all of you who want to give these highly-raved Jayjun masks a try but is unsure of where to start.

Let's begin with our review below:

Review: Primera Wild Seed Firming Water, Emulsion, Cream and Eye Cream


Today I wanna talk about my thoughts on these Wild Seed Firming line from Primera. This is more like a texture review because frankly speaking miniatures don't give me enough trial period to reap the full benefits from anti-aging and skin firming products. Primera launched this several months ago, and the serum last two months, so I wanna share my views on them with all of you here who are interested to purchase.

The products that I'm gonna be sharing are:

  • Wild Seed Firming Water
  • Wild Seed Firming Emulsion
  • Wild Seed Firming Cream
  • Wild Seed Firming Eye Cream


Review: CNP Laboratory Mugener Deep Soothing Pack


I talked about CNP Laboratory in my previous review here, so now I am gonna talk about the other CNP Laboratory product that The Face Shop Malaysia sent me several months ago. I apologize for not being able to share about it earlier, but that also gives me longer testing period to fully gauge the benefits of this product. Now let’s begin with our review!

Review: IOPE Hyaluronic Special Gift Set



I am really happy to receive these Hyaluronic skincare products from IOPE when I purchased its Bio Essence Intensive Conditioning. I always wanted to try out its Hyaluronic line, due to the packaging, as well as the brand's reputation, so the time has now come for me to give these blue babies a try!

In this set, we have:

  • IOPE Hyaluronic Softener 15ml
  • IOPE Hyaluronic Emulsion 15ml
  • IOPE Hyaluronic Serum 7ml
  • IOPE Hyaluronic Eye Serum 3ml
  • IOPE Hyaluronic Cream 7ml

Review: Neogence Sonic Facial Lifting Massager 音波美顏導入儀(小臉神器)


I think every woman needs at least one facial lifting massager in their skincare journey. My mom got herself Laneige Time Freeze Face-Fit Roller last year. She said that it made her skin firmer and younger. I was intrigued, but still decided to wait until May this year when I go to Taiwan, because I was already eyeing this Facial Lifting Massager from Neogence.

Let's look at my thoughts on the product after using it for several months now!

Review: Whamisa Organic Flowers Peeling Finger Mitt


I got this as a Gift with Purchase from my earlier Althea haul. I also bought the Whamisa Organic Flowers Olive Mist as well but found it to be quite rich for my liking. It also stings my skin a little everytime I apply so I think my skin isn't doing very well with Whamisa products. I wanted to give Whamisa a last try by trying out this newly released Organic Flowers Peeling Finger Mitt, which is essentially an exfoliating pad from the brand. Let's see if it changes my thoughts on Whamisa then!


Althea Angels Haul Review: Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50+ PA++++ and Petal Velvet Powder in Translucent, Warm Beige and Pink Lavender


It's sunscreen season! After Yadah came out with their hypoallergic, super gentle Sun Milk, now we have this beautiful Petal Velvet Sunaway delicately made by Yadah for all its fans! After the very successful experiences with Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxers, I am really curious to try out their newly curated and formulated Petal Velvet Sunaway sunscreen. And I am lucky to receive this as one of the Althea Angels so that I can share my first impression here with you guys!

In addition to the Petal Velvet Sunaway, Althea also sends us three makeup powders that look so adorable! Join me in my first impression reviews below:

  • Althea Petal Velvet Sunaway SPF50+ PA++++ 55ml
  • Althea Petal Velvet Powder 3g #Translucent
  • Althea Petal Velvet Powder 3g #23 Warm Beige
  • Althea Petal Velvet Powder 3g #Pink Lavender (Limited Edition)

Review: Neogen Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick


Cleansing sticks were really popular back then. It started with SU:M37 Miracle Rose Cleansing Stick. Belif came out with a Chamomile version when its sister brand SU:M37's cleansing stick is selling well. Then Neogen was quick to catch the trend.

I have tried both SU:M37 and Belif and were really unimpressed, so I didn't have high expectation on Neogen either. I just wanted to finish it earlier as it is near expiry.

Surprisingly, I am now totally in love with this green tea scented, gentle and effective facial cleanser! After using it for 2 months now, I can dare say that it is my favourite among all the SU:M37, Belif and Neogen cleansing sticks that I have tried!

Review: Primera Micellar 5.5 Cleansing Water


I am quite particular about cleansing water. Cleansing water is something that I use quite frequently, almost everyday especially during the weekdays. I have tried so many brands but many were quite disappointing. I sit in the office for at least 8 hours a day so my skin turns oily and uncomfortable in the noon time. It is not practical to use a cleanser in the office. So I am always on the look out for cleansing water that can solve my problems. I don't need a cleansing water to be super effective at taking off my makeup. As long as it is gentle and hydrating enough, and can take off dirt and sebum well, then I will be good with it.

So far, from all the cleansing waters that I have tried, only Son & Park lives up to my expectation. Even Son & Park sometimes feels sticky on the skin so I am curious to see how will this super gentle Primera does on my skin!

Review: SU:M37˚ Secret Essence



I love treatment essence, first essence or watery essence, whatever you call it. These are watery products with the properties of a toner but the efficacy of serum. They are essentially the best of both worlds. I also did a comparison review of 16 different treatment essences from different brands earlier, which give me a better idea of how essences are supposed to be. Normally I will use an essence for a good 2 months in isolation without using other products to test its results, which I did for this SU:M37 Secret Essence. Read on to find out more below!

Review: Jayjun Anti-Dust Whitening Mask


My skin looks dull yesterday so I tried this Jayjun Anti-Dust Whitening Mask out. I bought this quite some times ago. This is already my third piece so I have a better thought on it now.

Basically, the Jayjun Anti-Dust Whitening Mask is one of the brand's new products, after it became popular over the years. This one came out as the customers are more aware of pollution issue and its impacts on our skin's health. I reviewed the green "Anti Dust Therapy Mask" before, and this is its sibling "Anti Dust Whitening Mask".

Review: Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack - Rose & Calamine Wash-off Pack


I bought the Innisfree Capsule Recipe Pack - Rose & Calamine Wash-off Pack when it was first launched earlier this year, but always didn't get to use it because I don't have a lot of skin sensitive issue. Sometimes I buy things that interest me, that I think I will need, which may only happen a few months or even a year later! Anyhow, I have always been a fan of Innisfree capsule masks ever since I ventured into Kbeauty. These capsule packs give me amazing memories. They are small, cheap and come with many flavours, so you get to try out many fancy ingredients with the minimum amount of money spent. It is a great product for product junkee like me. Now after the GST is gone, these capsules are priced at only RM9 each, which is a great news for skincare lover like meeee!
