Review: Mirae Aromatherapy Mask - Soothing


The best thing about visiting Taiwan, especially for a skincare lover like me, is how many Watson’s and Cosmed you are seeing all over the streets. You will be showered in sheet masks, skincare and many other beauty products when you shop in Taiwan. No joke, it is seriously that abundant.

And what attracts me about this Mirae Aromatherapy Mask is the aromatherapy claim. Mirae is a relatively new Taiwanese skincare brand. They are more popular for their 8-minutes mask. Their popularity even surpasses My Beauty Diary masks in the recent months based on my observation. This Aromatherapy is their latest collection, which features scented sheet mask for therapeutic purposes. The one we have here is the purple one with lavender extract for additional soothing benefits.


Review: Make P:rem Moisturizing Oil Sheet Mask


I bought this Make P:rem Moisturizing Oil Sheet Mask from Althea, along with many other “medium-priced” sheet masks a while ago. Sometimes, it is better to use one of these, than 3 of the “cheap-priced” ones, as there is an actual difference between both masks. For that reason, I have stopped falling for RM1 masks that I see in shopping malls or night market, as you don’t know what goes onto your skin with something that cheap.


Anyhow, back to this Make P:rem Moisturizing Oil Sheet Mask. This is essentially a serum-type sheet mask blended with facial oils to intensely hydrate and nourish your skin. This is one of the first oil masks I am having, and I am really curious to see how well it will work on my skin.


中文特辑(品牌故事):分享我对碧研菲Belif产品的使用心得(2/2)



这是上次所发表的Belif产品的使用心得的下篇。

坦白说,我自己也不清楚我为什么会那么迷恋Belif这个牌子。Belif在台湾也很受欢迎,很多部落格都说这是平价的高端品牌。对于我来说,这个牌子的性价比完胜高端的欧美产品,比Kiehl’s更加适合亚洲肌肤。

你在Kiehl’s的很多产品可以看到欧美的影子,例如他的化妆水大多含有较高浓度的酒精成分,质地与功效也与欧美国家的“astringent toner”相似,
属于二次清洁、收缩毛孔的产品。在Belif,化妆水完全与清洁沾不上边,他完全是针对不同肌肤推出的不同质地的精华水。

Kiehl’s的卸妆产品也没有Belif的来得多,Belif在Kiehl’s推出卸妆油之前就已经有针对不同肌肤所推出的卸妆水、卸妆乳液和卸妆油。Belif的产品也相对保湿,质地会比Kiehl’s大部分产品来得滋润,更适合中干性肌肤使用。Kiehl’s家的产品大多使用paraben这个较有争议性的防腐剂,而在Belif你只看到phenoxyethanol,没有paraben的影子。

综合以上的因素,我个人会比较喜欢Belif。不是说Kiehl’s不好,只是belif更适合我吧。

Gmarket Haul August 2018 Review: I Received a "Love Letter" from the Custom!


I shop less and less nowadays. I used to buy from Qoo10, 11 Street, Shopee, and Gmarket a lot but now I am cutting back on my shopping spree and only focuses on things that I truly need. Sometimes, I may buy things I want just out of curiosity, but I will open that right after receiving it for immediate gratification, instead of keeping it on my shelf and regret it later when the initial urge has passed. You can see how controlling I’m now that I only shop from Gmarket after months of skincare “no-buy”. And these are things I need and have been eyeing for sometimes. 

Let’s have a look at these gorgeous products~

Review: Yadah Oh My Sun Protection Milk SPF50+ PA++++ 50ml, A Hypoallergic, No White Cast and Safe Mineral Sunscreen for Babies and Pregnant Women!


I am obsessed with the thought of finding the perfect sunscreen, after my horrible experience with many sunscreens. I cannot miss the chance of trying out new sunscreens that many people rave about. I know Krave Beauty has just launched one, Missha also recently revamped their sunscreen lines, but nothing excites me more than this minimalist “zero white cast physical sunscreen” that Yadah sent me two months ago. You can see that I raved about it on my Instagram. I used it almost every day despite my busy schedule and I am planning to get myself a backup after I finished this, soon.


中文特辑(14):2018年7月空瓶分享和爱用品心得推荐


7月份是很忙的一个月份,我忙着注册、搬家等等,还有各种工作上的琐事。搬家时候,我还送了很多护肤品给亲戚朋友们,所以很多用着、用完甚至没用过的护肤品都被分散安置。这个月的空瓶记的东西会比较少,各种小样的空瓶也没有留着。如果你在我Instagram看到我分享某样东西,可是迟迟不见我分享的,也可以留言询问我的使用感受,我有看到会尽量回答。

好,废话不多说,马上开始我们7月份的空空赏!

Review: Medi Heally Herbal Eye Patch


I have a lot of faith in Medi Heally products, especially after my positive experiences with its Waist Warm Pack (for ovulation) and Herb Warm Pack (for menstruation). Hence, I am intrigued to try it out when they launched this innovative Eye on Pack, or Herb Eye Pack for your eyes!

Frankly speaking, I don’t know why Althea calls it “Eye on Pack”, maybe it is borrowing from the popular song “Eyes on Me”? The Herb Eye Pack retails for RM28/5 packs at Althea. Kao Megurhythm Hot Steam Eye Mask retails for RM22/5 packs at various AEON and Watson’s though so Kao is RM6 cheaper than Medi Heally. Let’s see if Medi Heally worth the higher price tag!

Review: CNP Laboratory Perfection Energy Kit


CNP Laboratory has been around for quite some times in Malaysia. I saw them available at Watson's and major kbeauty retailers, but never really got to try out one of their products. Thanks to The Face Shop, I now get to try out one of these scientific-back, dermatologist tested and gently formulated goodies from Korea!


The Perfection Energy Kit that they sent me is a collection of various CNP Laboratory's best-selling products. The main call here is skin brightening effect, where they try to achieve a fairer and brighter complexion and skin tone with the vitamin C packed ingredients in all these products.




I tested all for a good three months and so, and here are my thoughts on each of the product below:

Review: Yuripibu Kakadu Spot Essence


I was on shopping spree when I purchased this Kakadu Spot Essence. By right I should be getting only the Artichoke Power Essence, but I went on to buy this Spot Essence too, although I already got three brightening serums (Kiehl’s, Laneige and Leegeeham) sitting on my table. I guess that a common mistake that all women do, from time to time.


So back to this Kakadu Spot Essence. I couldn’t find a lot of information on this Essence, because all information available is in Korean. I need to do my own researching and ingredients translating if I were to understand more about it. So basically, the Kakadu Spot Essence is a skin brightening serum made of vitamin C enriched Kakadu plum extract. It has a golden ratio of skin brightening formula, made of 60% Kakadu plum extract and 20% perennial extract.

Review: Hyggee All-In-One H2 Soap


Hyggee was really popular with its All-In-One Essence so this brand and its hydrogen-instilled soap caught my attention when it was opened for review on Charis Website. I wanted to see how good is Hyggee and whether it lives up to all its hypes over the Instagram. Here are my thoughts on the H2 Soap after using it for a good two months now.

Hyggee recommends that you use this H2 Soap when you have dry, dull and sensitive skin. Dry skin will benefit more from this product than oilier skin.


Althea Angels Box Haul Review and New Althea Mask Launch in Collaboration with Get it Beauty!


It's been quite a while since I last blogged so I want to throw in a quick beauty "haul" review with you guys here.

Althea has been generous enough to send me their latest creation or curation with Get it Beauty, a popular Korean beauty drama show. I didn't have high expectations on the new products when I received them, but they turned out to be surprisingly good!

Let's have a look at all the goodies packed in this Althea Angels box!

Review: Innisfree My Hair Recipe Anti Dandruff Shampoo for Dandruff Scalp


I have no idea why I cannot find this on Innisfree Malaysia's official website. Only the calming and refreshing ones are available on the website. Nonetheless, here it is my thought on this recent addition to Innisfree's hair care line. I always love Innisfree products, having tried out at least 100 over Innisfree products, but frankly speaking I have not tried out one of their hair shampoos. But this latest My Hair Recipe line (with the brown packaging for scalp care) really caught my attention so I quickly bought one home after I finished my Lador Triple 3x Natural Shampoo.

It is hard for me to compare this to my other anti-dandruff shampoo because my dandruff problem is nearly cured after I used the Nizora Anti-Dandruff Shampoo I bought from the pharmacy.

I didn't want to return to other over-the-counter shampoos since my scalp is still quite sensitive and I don't want to risk having all the flakiness back again so I am sticking to this shampoo. Below are my thoughts after using the shampoo for a good 3 months now.

中文特辑(品牌故事):分享我对碧研菲Belif产品的使用心得


我对Belif这个牌子的爱,已经可以说是众所周知。

Belif大大小小的产品我都已经尝遍摸尽了,不管是质地偏油腻,还是清爽如水的,我都试过,也大力推广给让身边的人。

不少朋友听到我对Belif的爱,对这个牌子都很感兴趣,不过苦于我的部落格都是以英文书写,而身边的朋友们都不看英文部落格,所以我就特别为这个牌子写了一个中文版的使用心得。

希望大家喜欢!

至于那些对belif还不太熟悉的中文读者们,belif其实是一个韩国牌子,不过他应用英国一个草药专家Napiers的配方,所改良研发出来的护肤品系列。他的诉求是全天然草本配方,以传统草药熬煮方式制成,特别适合敏感性皮肤。不管是我、我妈妈还是我敏感性肌肤的好友都很喜欢这个牌子。

它的价格和Kiehl's不相上下,大部分产品都在RM100-250之间,不过我个人认为买多的话belif比较划算些,因为他有买RM350-RM50,以及扣完再送小样的优惠,有时候还会有会员价打八折,所以综合这些我还是偏爱belif这个牌子。

由于产品偏多,我将会分成两个部分讲解我对belif的心得,这个部分是关于洁面乳、卸妆产品、化妆水、精华类产品的部分,而写一辑则会分享关于保湿乳、保湿霜、面膜、防晒以及其他的身体产品。

希望你们会喜欢这次的特辑!

Review: Make P:rem Peel Me Radiance Peeling Serum


I love Dr. Wu Mandelic Acid 18% Serum. It does a good job kicking out all the dullness and whiteheads on my skin, and sometimes the blackheads too. But Dr. Wu can be quite harsh on the skin sometimes. So I was tempted to buy the Make P:rem Radiance Peeling Serum when Glow Recipe featured it as their September 2017’s Glow Gamechanger. Let’s see how it works compared to Dr. Wu!

Review: Dr. Wu Intensive Whitening Serum with Vitamin C+


This is my second marriage to the Dr. Wu Intensive Whitening Serum with Vitamin C+, after my first in 2014. Dr. Wu reformulated this product in 2016 hence this should be the upgraded formula of the previous one that doesn’t work for me. I have tried Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, Laneige White Dew Ampoule Essence and The Ordinary Arbutin 2%, so I am sure I can have a better idea on this whitening serum now than 4 years back. I bought this when I visited Taiwan in May 2018 for wedding photoshoot. I was gonna get the For the Beloved One whitening line before the beautician stopped me and recommended me this instead. So I took her advice and decided to give this a second try. I have seen good results after using it days and nights for some 2 months now, which is why I am pretty excited to share it with you guys.


Review: Belif Prime Infusion Repair Program Ampoule


Do you know that one of the best things in life is to be given things you love and you end up loving it? Everyone knows I am a Belifian. I love Belif products and make many people around me falling for it as well. I collect Belif products like stamp. Recently Belif came out with this amazing Prime Infusion Repair Program Ampoule Set that I knew I just can't miss but the price is really killing me, so you can tell how happy am I when I am gifted this a few months ago. It took me a good while to test the products out, and have my husband and my mom trying them out as well. And now, I am ready to share my two cents worth!


Just something worth mentioning though. Belif changes their Brand Manager recently so their promotional activities are a bit different. You can see more freebies and gift with purchases recently. She really knows what customers want!


The Belif family is expanding.


One of the best kits you can get from Belif at great prices.


Countless GwP and fun activities!

Review: Yuri Pibu Artichoke Power Toner


Frankly speaking, I bought this because I was super in love with the Essence. I wanted to try this toner out badly, so that I can double up the pores-minimizing and anti-oxidizing effects of the Essence. Besides, who is not interested in a toner that claims to do all the firming, brightening and tightening effects for your skin? And since it is meant for big pores, I also gave it to my mom who has pores concern, and she enjoys this just as much as I do. Below are our thoughts on the toner after using it for about several months now.

Review: Helloskin Jumiso Water Splash Mask


I must admit that I buy this Helloskin mask because of the packaging. It looks like something young ladies will like. Besides, I am a fan of cupro sheet mask. My Polatam serves me well so I’m expecting the same from Helloskin. Below are my thoughts on the product.

Review: Jayjun Anti-Dust Therapy Mask



I bought this Jayjun Anti-Dust Therapy Mask from SASA once it became available. I guess pollution has really become a thing in our daily life now. Many skincare products are formulated to mitigate the negative impacts of air pollutants. For instance, the cilantro orange cooling pack from Kiehl’s, the anti-pollution bubble mask from Belif, and the cleansing water made of Himalayan salt from Blithe. Jayjun joins the poll by launching two anti-pollution masks, one is the “Anti-Dust Whitening Mask” with skin brightening effect, and the other one is “Anti-Dust Therapy Mask” with skin repairing and anti-wrinkles benefits.

Review: A'pieu Clean Up Herb Source Cleansing Water, Deep Cleansing Oil Tissue and Mineral Cau-Marine Lip & Eye Remover


Actually, this review should come earlier because these are actually products I bought from Gmarket about 2 years back. I ventured into the brand in 2016, trying out things like its highly raved sunscreen and eyes & lips remover. I also bought the cleansing water and oil issue, but since I got many cleansing water lining up in the past 2 years, I only got to try it out now. Late is better than never, lemme share with you guys my thoughts on these A'pieu makeup removing cleansing products!
