AXA 110 Cancer Care - Let's start fighting

Image
One of the most, yes most difficult sickness to handle is cancer, be it any type of cancer. Cancer is not always fatal as I've seen or heard stories of whole lot of them who have successfully survived cancer due to early detection or so but I've also heard enough about those who have lost their life fighting cancer.  

Its not easy fighting for cancer as it involves emotions, care and a whole lot of expenses. Most of the cancer treatments are expensive but its of course nothing compared to our previous life. And the most toughest part is emotions. You should be caring and understanding to cancer patients as they are going through the most toughest phase of their life and added with the heavy treatments and pain that they undergo.

I came across a person who have fought her life fighting from cancer. She had to undergo so much of treatments and most of her days were spend in the hospital. She fought and fought and the family was so much in pain too not being able to help her. She p…

Uriage's Moisturising Refreshing Cream Gel

Image
Have you ever come across Uriage brand? Uriage's head office is based in Paris while the production site is set up at the source of the thermal water. Uriage provides a full range of hypoallergenic products formulated with Uriage Thermal Water. 

I was lucky enough to try the Moisturising Refreshing Cream Gel which is suitable for normal to combination type of skin. Now this is great as I have a combination skin and I always look for a gel type of cream so that it can penetrate well to my skin. I have been using this cream gel for a few months now and wondering why I'm loving it that it deserves a write up?


Well first of all, I like the light feel of the cream gel. It's very light and which means an application of this cream gel is just flawless. It also has a matifying agent which simply means that it reduces shine on my skin. Wow! Isn't that simply great? This means every time I apply them, I immediately have an oil free skin. Applying them is so simply. All you have…

Imedeen Classic - Added Definition

Image
I've been pretty occupied this few months, with having more than one engagements to work on and with having clients out of Malaysia, life was just all about..yes ALL about work and only work. Added I got attacked by bad cough as well. While i may forget to talk my cough mixtures on time, there's one thing that I never forget to have daily. What is this you wonder?

Yea, it's my new addition to my daily routine recently. The ever famous 'Imedeen Classic'. For those of you who followed my blog will know that I recently added 'Imedeen Classic' to my daily diet. All I need to do is just to have 2 tablets a day of the miracle 'Imedeen Classic' pill and tadaaa you're supposed to have enhanced skin quality.



Now did this really work? Sometimes skin quality is something hard to be showed on a photograph or to be tested. However, how if you walk to a skincare boutique to get some products and the sales assistant tells you that your skin is good and you only …

The Lilac Box's Cult Box #1

By now most of you would know how crazy I am over beauty boxes and how I try to get most of them. So recently when The Lilac Box guys announced about their first Cult Box, I quickly subscribed and eagerly waited for the box.  

Now are you like me and want to know what was in the first Cult Box of The Lilac Box? Here you go...



Eugene Perma Nourishing Hair Bath
I was first confused on what was the use of this product, on if it was a shampoo or a conditioner but now i know, its a shampoo. It helps to detangle the hair and leaving it both soft and shiny. Now thats what any girl wants right. 

Eugene Perma Nourishing Mask
This mask is said to nourish the hair fibre deep down and be able to protect your hair from the UV rays. Additionally also helps to strenghten your hair and keep it soft and shiny as always. The mask has the color of a slight pink and it immediately caught my eye and the smell is so divine. 



Mistral Verbena Shower Gel
This shower gel is enriched with natural healing chamomile, al…

Image
As we are nearing the 'holiday' month of November and December, all you can actually think of is holidays and pure relaxation and wonderful travelling. Am I right? Well at least Im super excited as I'll be going to the amazing Siem Reap this coming November to visit the magnificent Angkor Wat. 

Now wondering why is she suddenly talking about travelling and holidays? Well that's because the Bag of Love just understood our desires and came out with the exact themed bag. Now i can bring this with me to Siem Reap? :-) Alright alright, enough of Siem Reap and lets get to the bag and what's in the bag this time around.


One thing that I love with Bag of Love is the different type of bag that they surprise us with every month. It's something that I eagerly wait to know every month. See, do you like the bag below? It's a transparent bag and it's spacious. You can surely put in your travel sized products in it and bring it with you.

Now, lets see what products they …

My Imedeen Classic Journey..

Image
Every now and then I tend to wonder, how do you stay younger than your age. With the current lifestyle that we all have which is pretty stressful for most of us and we rarely enjoy the goodness of life and this automatically makes us even more aged.

This definitely triggered me to find for a product that I can incorporate in my daily diet to help me looking young and radiant as always with soft and smooth skin. I've always heard about Imedeen as it has been in the market for so many years and I've also heard that it works it's magic. However, never got the chance to try them. But i've finally got to try them. Yeay!!

For those of you who have limited knowledge about this product,Imedeen Classic is the original skin perfecting formula featuring the exclusive Biomarine Complexworking to nourish and improve skin from within. Taking just two tablets a day will enhance skin quality and optimise moisture levels in just 3 months. Now this is great because I have 3 months supply …

Esmeria Organics - Prickly Pear Range

Image
Quite sometime back, I received this particular travel sized product through Wonderbox subscription. I kept thinking if I should give it a try as it's an organic skincare. Well since it's something unique and I also got something that suits my skin (yes! it was for normal to combination skin), I immediately dived into trying this new range 'Prickly Pear Facial Travel Set'.

This travel set came with the following product:
i) Balancing Cleansing Gel
ii) Balancing Toner
iii) Moisturiser


Let's look at the product one by one.

Prickly Pear Balancing Cleansing Gel
It contained mild sugar and amino acid derived cleansing agents to remove dirt and pollution while the Alphine Willowherb and Mexican Prickly Pear in it regulates sebum secretion and at the same time soothes and protects against any environmental stress factors. This is the first step where you need to cleanse using this gel. The texture is slightly different that other skincare, as it's more liquid based, bu…

Fall asleep with The Body Shop's Deep Sleep

Image
With the current lifestyle that we all have, stress has become something so usual and most of us go through that. And stress then just disturbs our sleep. Now well not only stress disturbs our sleep but sometimes our minds just end up wondering around when it supposed to rest. Wondering why am I talking about sleep now?

Having a good night sleep is really important for any individual. It helps to recover your body after a long day at work, gets your mind to rest and of course sleep is also important for a healthy body and mind, and body includes skin right. I've also had problem sleeping at night and it feels worst when I need to wake up pretty early the next morning. People say, try counting the sheeps and you'll fall asleep. Haha, it never works.



But I was pretty lucky when I bumped into The Body Shop's Deep Sleep Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist. This mist is made of jujube date extract, camomile and blended essential oils. This quick drying mist allows you to have a good …

Winning Babor with Thelilacbox

Image
How do you feel when you actually win something? Super excited and happy right? And that's the same feeling so matter how big or small the win could be. One fine day, I just tried my luck by participating in a online facebook content organised by 'thelilacbox'. All you had to do was to complete a slogan of 'Babor makes me confident because...". Now what's the price? Its a hamper of products from Babor, Babor High Skin Refiner set worth RM 899.

So without wasting much time and with my little creativity, I wrote the following  slogan. Babor makes me confident because it's all about making women '[B]old, [A]dmirable, [B]eautiful, [O]n-top-of-the-world, [R]adiant.

I anxiously wanted for the results and guess what, I was one of the 5 lucky winners to win the contest. Yahooo!!! Wanna see what I won? Just have a glimpse below :-)

I have yet to try them but will surely do and keep you posted on my experience.
Thank you 'thelilacbox' for the wonderful o…

WonderBox May 2013 Edition

Image
It's been a while that i've updated the blog due to some really busy period. Apologies ladies for not updating the blog with the wonderful products that I received. Anyway without further due, lets dive in to the WonderBox Malaysia's May 2013 edition.

I'm sure you're wondering why am I still taking the photo of the box. Well, simply because it's tied with a BLUE ribbon. And blue is one of my favourite color. It looks really good right. The box itself was heavy and of course I was really curious to see what was in it.


Yes, below are all the products that was in the box. It was of course a good amount of products with a really reasonable size. Sumhow, a lot of the stuff in the box were blue in color. Was it some blue fever or something? Haha, alright ignore that please. Lets zoom in and see what they have. 


Neutrogena Hydro Boast Mask (2 sachets)
It's clinically proven to boost skin moisture level 14 times and prevent moisture loss. It holds 25% more Hydro Boost …

Vanity Trove March - Temptress Seduction

Image
This is the second box from Vanity Trove Malaysia and the hopes were certainly high from a lot of them out there too. And yes it included me too. I was waiting anxiously to know what's the content this time and how it would seduce me, yes right with the theme 'Temptress Seduction'. So what they has this time and did they make the mark? Judge it yourself :-)




1) Asian Potion - Blooming Ginger Body Lotion

"Said to be made from natural flowers, fruits and plant essences and helps to make your skin feel moisturised and firm. This is the perfect skin quencher that provides you with a deep inner calmness after a long day"

There was also a 10% discount voucher from Asian Potion.
I love lotions and always welcome beauty boxes which includes any sort of lotions. So this is also my favourite.



2) Timeless Truth - TT Orchid Extract Whitening Mask.
"It's said to be made from orchid, purple peril and chamomile extracts and will help you whiten, brighten and moisturise …

Wonderbox February Edition - Hot Red!

Image
oOo No, i have beauty boxes filling up the space and I've not done any reviews yet.  So which was is gonna hit the blog first? Erm, I think it should be the one that first arrived right. And it's also one of my favourite? Why? Because they always arrive on time for me (well used too unlike this round) and the way the ribbon is tied and lastly the small details that they like to include (eg. the flowers that they have included this time around). Somehow this round, I believe that I was in the second group of shipping as I got my box way later than others. And by the time I got it, it was not a surprise anymore as a lot of them starting posting up the photos out there. I guess this company sends their boxes in stages.


Anyway, that aside, beauty boxes never fails to make me happy when I get to open them. So what do they have stored this time around? See below ladies.. Yes, this box was filled till the very top :-)




Time to given a much closer look..

Di Palomo Tuscan Rose Hand & Nail Cream

Image
The one thing that I never, yes I repeat, I never leave home without is my hand creams I must say. You'll be wondering why hand creams? I can say that I have dry hands and applying hand creams allows my hand to feel soft and the moisture in the creams makes your hand just feel so nice. So do I have a specific hand cream that I use? The answer is No. My theory is simple. Why don't I just use various brands out there and see how it feels and plus lets try the different scents out there. Life is boring if you just stick to one right.


Recently, I was introduced with Di Palomo's Enriching Hand & Nail Cream which I found in the Vanity Trove box and I immediately started using them. Di Palomo is a brand from England, inspired by Italy. And they have more than hand creams, means they also produce perfumes and bath & shower products (yes, how I wish i get to try all their bath & shower products. Yes you're right, I go crazy of them).

The Hand & Nail Cream that I…

Vanity Trove Malaysia - *Debut Box* It's All About Love

Image
Vanity Trove is not something new in Malaysia as Malaysian subscribers have been getting their boxes shipped from Singapore all these while. Of course the down side of this was that we often get coupons that are only applicable at Singapore and the events are organised in Singapore and which means we Malaysian subscribers were not able to attend them. However, we got a good news recently when they actually launched Vanity Trove Malaysia. This means we get to attend functions that Vanity Trove organises in Malaysia and what's more amazing is that we can now use the coupon that's in the trove. Vanity Trove Malaysia's debut box was the February 2013 box themed 'It's all about Love'.

Something different about Vanity Trove Malaysia was that they actually used a different courier service other than GDex, which is Kangaroo Worldwide Express Courier. Vanity Trove Malaysia's box is exactly similar to the trove that was shipped from Singapore previously (yes the drawe…
