Review: Make P:rem Blue Ray Sun Gel SPF50+ PA++++


I talked about the orange-cap Make P:rem Capsule Sun Gel already, so now I am gonna focus on its sister product the blue-cap Make P:rem Blue Ray Sun Gel!

Actually I was planning to buy only the orange one, but I bought the blue one as well as I was looking for a sunscreen that will mitigate the impact of my bright office environment. Those bright light is putting a toll on my skin I am convinced, after reading description and reviews of this Blue Ray Sun Gel that it can help.

Let’s see how I feel after using it for several months now!

Review: Blithe Soothing & Healing Green Tea Patting Splash Mask


Actually this review should come earlier. I have already been using and loving this since May this year, but hadn't been talking about it until now. Those who follow my blog should have heard of Blithe. I raved about its Chaga Tundra Pressed Serum. Although I am less impressed by the Velvet Yam Pressed Serum and the Vital Treatment 5 Energy Roots Essence, but my love towards Blithe remains unchanged. It is a good brand that deserves more attention. So today I'm gonna bring your attention to another product from Blithe that again, many have raved about, that I think you would be interested in trying!

I bought this during Sephora Member Day sales early this year. I never thought of buying it at first because I am not exactly sure what can it do for my skin. I have many other chemical exfoliants that I don't think this in-shower, quick-remedy thing will work. It just so happened that I received two splash mask samples from my last Blithe haul that I got to try it out for myself. It was a love at first sight. I can see my skin looking clearer, brighter and fresher from that one treatment. Next day, I quickly went to Sephora (and it happened to be Sephora Member Sales, how lucky am I?) and got myself the Green Tea flavour.


Review: Innisfree Extreme UV Protection Gel Lotion 60 SPF50+ PA+++ (Water Based)


I'm not sure what my feeling truly is towards sunscreen. I don't like to wear sunscreen (and makeup, too). I don't like having that extra layer of "something" on my face. But I have this urge of trying out new sunscreen whenever they are launched. I'm not sure why. Maybe I am still trying to find my perfect sunscreen - a sunscreen that doesn't feel like sunscreen at all.

I bought the Innisfree Extreme UV Protection Gel Lotion 60 Water Base from Innisfree Malaysia several months ago. It was not cheap at RM 69, if compared to local brands. Now Innisfree upgraded its packaging again so this sunscreen looks a little difference than it was but the content was similar. It was launched during the summer time so I guess the "60" in its label was trying to imply that this has an SPF of 60. Now lets take a look at this Innisfree sunscreen!

Review: Acwell Bubble-Free pH Balancing Cleanser


I just finished my last drop of this ultra gentle, non-foaming, low pH cleanser from Acwell this morning! That was quick because I alternated between 3 cleansers and I still managed to finish this within 3.5 months! That actually reminded me how fast I can go through non-foaming cleanser like these, even though its content (150ml) is the same as other foaming cleanser.

Acwell Bubble-Free pH Balancing Cleanser is not new to many of us. Many vloggers and bloggers have talked and raved about it, so I didn't want to go into too many details about it. I am pretty sure you can find those elsewhere.

I got my Acwell Bubble-Free pH Balancing Cleanser from Althea about 6 months ago when they first launched Acwell. This product was a gift for the purchase of any Acwell products so I just couldn't miss that opportunity. I grabbed the Acwell cream and some other products and received this cleanser for free. Currently it is selling at RM 80+ at Althea.

Review: Innisfree Truecare Cica Intensive Balm


Cica is getting more and more popular now. Many brands are coming up with their own cica products. Initially I was not attracted to cica because I don't really have acne concern. But ever since I shifted job and slept an hour less everyday, I am prone to getting breakouts especially on both side of my cheek. They show up as closed comedones that will not go away no matter how hard I try. Eventually I had to convince myself to finally commit into an acne-calming treatment, which is how I found this Innisfree Cica Intensive Balm.

I bought the Innisfree Cica Intensive Balm when I just got off from Cosrx and wanted to try something different. Make P:rem hasn't come out with a cica cream yet and I was not attracted to tea tree, bija, and other acne-calming treatment. Cica sounds interesting and gentle enough, so I decided to give it a try!

Let's read on to find out more about my experience using Innisfree Cica Intensive Balm for close to 6 months below!

Review: Loveisderma B12+ Mandelic Acid Gelly Masque


I was sent several Loveisderma products for review a few months ago, this Mandelic Acid Gelly Masque was one of them. I thought they were gonna send me the hyaluronic acid one and was quite happy that they actually sent me the Mandelic Acid one. Mandelic Acid is an AHA with blackhead clearing properties so it actually works like a BHA too. And the fact that it is oil-soluble makes it suitable for combination and oily skin too. No wonder Mandelic Acid has quickly become one of the favourite ingredients in the beauty industry! I loved my Dr. Wu 18% Mandelic Acid Serum and I was pretty excited to see how this masque will work for my skin!

Review: Tomaru Pure White Blossom Brightening Toner, Essence and Soulful Morning Drop Power Cream Aqua Pump


For those of you who don't know, the same company that owned THE FACE SHOP in Malaysia recently expanded its line and opened up its first multi-brand stores in Malaysia known as Nature Smart. It carried brands like THE FACE SHOP, Beyond, CNP Laboratory, Tomaru, Dear Packer and many more, all under the umbrella company of LG Household & Healthcare in Korea!

Currently they are only available in Kuching but West Malaysian fans can get a hand on these innovative products from THE FACE SHOP e-store as well as Hermo!


In today's review, I'm gonna talk about three products I received from Nature Smart (aka THE FACE SHOP) about 4 weeks ago. They are from a new brand called Tomaru that harnesses essences of natural resources from the purest and most uncivilized lands in Korea:




  • Tomaru Pure White Blossom Brightening Toner
  • Tomaru Pure White Blossom Brightening Essence
  • Tomaru Soulful Morning Drop Power Cream Aqua Pump


  • Let's read on to find out more below!

    Review: Polatam Water Gel Extra Force Brightening Mask


    Polatam mask is a real treat! It carries a faint floral-herbal scent that reminds me of Crabtree & Evelyn stores. The kind of smell you get from natural, hand-made fragrance soaps or body lotion. I can dare say that my 20 minutes with it on is a feast for my skin and soul.


    I purchased my Polatam masks from Kurator, a local kbeauty curator that carries many products available on Glow Recipe. Polatam is one of their curation. So far the brand owner only produces sheet mask (and a cream recently) but based on my positive experience with their masks, I'm hoping that they will come out with more skincare products in the near future!


    Review: Common Labs Ggultamin C Real Jet Mask


    I have been seeing this mask flowing around on social media so I knew I had to get a hand on one. I bought all three flavours from Althea Korea last month, with some given to my mom. The one I am using today is the Vitamin C Ggultamin C Real Jet Mask. I saw a lot of dark spots emerging around the my right cheek so I wanted to get a quick fix which was why I chose the vitamin C flavour.
