Can I be as fair as Snow White?

Assalamualaikum, Selamat Sejahtera and Hello!

Goshhhh when is the last time I've update my blog? I am terribly sorry as since I get into university, my life has been like a ship trying to sail during thunderstorm. You can imagine I suppose.

Anyway, today I want to share with you a review on the Nano White skin care. Have you heard about it? If you don't, WHYYYYY?! It's like all over the place. haha! Few months back, my sister gave me this product to test and review. Since I'm in need of new range skin care, I grab the chance to try it. But I grab the chance in the wrong time because when I changed to this range, my skin was super sensitive and dry. It was so dry that my skin became flaky! So, when changing to this range, it became worst. Why? Because this range concentrates on the tone of the skin. Of course I want to be fair like Snow White but I can't because I need to concentrate on treating my dry skin first before I use products for fair.

Anyhow, let's get know better about the products I've tested

Awakening Snow Wash 100g
Awakening Snow Wash is actually the cleansing wash. It claims that this contains HappyDermalogy and nano-technology to bright up the skin. When I saw the word Glycerin as the second ingredient, I sigh a relief. Because my skin is dry and I need something that can keep my face moist.

What I like: The smell! It smells fresh and nice.
What I dislike: The after effect. It said that after washing, we feel cool and not tight. But for me, I felt very tight. That is when I realised they Glycerin didn't do much in my face TT___TT

Refining Treatment Toner 200ml

"This treatment toner tightens and refines pores. It is power-packed with Happy Dermalogy, nano technology, Omega White-C, Allantoin, Orange extract, Lemon extract and Bilberry extract to balance and work as an astringent, minimizing pores and removing excess oil without drying the skin."

Truthfully, I actually do not really like this toner because it makes my skin super duper dry. If you have sensitive skin, I suggest you to not wear this toner as it can get worse. But on the other hand, based on the ingredients, if you have small pimples it will actually help to clean it as this toner has Witch Hazel. Which is really good! But whyyyy it doesn't work with my skin T_T

What I like: None.. >,<
What I dislike: How it feels on my skin after I apply it

Cell Moist Whitenor 40ml
I LOVE THIS MOISTURISER! Okay I know that the last two products does not work for me, but this one work perfectly fine with me. When I apply on my face, it does not feel oily like certain moisturiser which I hate. You know when it is not oily but you feel very moisturise, it makes wearing make-up so easy. I recommend this moisturiser for every skin type.

What I dislike: Somehow the smell as it quite strong

Well basically, I think this range is actually good for people who have normal to oily skin. Since I had dry skin, changing to this range was not really a good idea. Currently, I am treating my dry skin. Once my skin goes back to normal, I would definitely try this range again!

A day in Hammam Spa

Assalamualaikum, Selamat Sejahtera and Hello!

It's been a while I know. Anyway,recently, my mother and I decided to go to Hammam Spa which is located in Publika. After hearing that my cousins had a very great treatment there, we were excited about it.

So,what is Hammam?

According to my brother, Hammam in arabic means bathroom or more precise, bath house. It is also known as the Turkish Bath. That's what in the pamphlet said. This Hammam is inspired by the Morrocoon theme spa. Everything inside is very Morrocan :D

We were lucky because they had a promotion for Christmas. (Note: they didn't pay me for this post....though it would be awesome if they did!)

RM265 for Hammam and Gomage with Aromatic Massage. Usually it would cost RM315. This promotion last until 5th of January 2014. Be sure to CALL them and make an appointment because they're always full.

So let's start our journey in Hammam

Credit : Hammam Spa Facebook
We started with changing our clothes into well, disposal panties and bra. Then met with our therapists. They are from Morroco!Nice! They don't really speak English but they do speak French and Arabic.

After meeting them, they led us into a bath house like in the picture above. It is quite similar to a sauna or steam room but in this room they control the humidity by only 20%. Firstly, they washed us using warm water. You know like how mother bathing their children, it's quite similar. I feel like a baby.LoL! After that, they asked us to lay down on the side and applied black soap which made from olive, all over our body. After 10 minutes, they rinsed us and led us to another room, Gommage

In Gommage, we we asked they lay down on a marble slab. Then they scrub us using kind of course glove. It was a bit painful for me since I've never tried it but heyy beauty is pain baby. The scrub is from neck to toe. Every single corner of our body. And by all, I mean ALL. please understand that. How embarrassing!! my therapist only can laughed at me ==' After finished scrubbing, I can see al my dead skin cells all over the marble slab..euwwwwwwwww. Then, they washed us again and applied henna and then rinsed. Nadia, y therapist told me that they would only use the scrubbing glover once. So she cut the glove in front of me to show about it. It's good that they keep it hygenic.

Too many water!! They kept rinsing and rinsing us. My mother said she felt like a dead person. What she meant was, in Islam,if someone died, you need to wash her or him. My mother said it was practically the same =________=

After all those washing and scrubbing, they dried our body(yesss. they did. isn't like a baby?!) the led us to a resting place where they served us mint tea. After 10minutes of relaxing, we head off to massage. The massage is conducted by Malaysian so it's a bit comfortable to talk to them. They used argan oil for the massage. After 2Hours and 15minutes, our session finished.

I found this treatment was quite interesting because it's different from lulur. But I have to say that is not that relaxing as I thought it would be. The massage is relaxing but not the gommage. Well, I can't feel that relax when someone scrub all over. But my skin feels super soft after that!!

Praha from Holika Holika

Assalamualaikum , Selamat Sejahtera and Hello!
Just some quick review from the latest toner I bought from Holika Holika

This is Praha Blossom Essence.Remember I bought Bulgarian Rose before?This is nothing like that.I hate this product.Sorry to say, it just does not work as I expected in to be.

1)It dries my skin
2)I have dry spots
3)My skin tone becomes very uneven
4)The smell is nothing like jasmine (the salesgirl said it made up from jasmine..bleghhh)

It is so sad that this product is actually intended to moisturize face.When it does not work as I expected it to be I was like "The Fishhh"

Thank God I bought this when Holika Holika was having a sale.So instead of RM70++ , I ot it for RM30++. Now,I'm back with Herbaline.Herbaline is my rescuer!

DIY:How To Look Brighter For Hari Raya

Assalamualaikum , Selamat Sejahtera and Hello!

Today I'm going to share a DIY scrub that I have been loving this year.All you need is Green Tea.

That is the only ingredient you need.I usually use Boh Green Tea.The one with tea bag.Follow these steps for a brighter skin!

1)Brew your green tea
2)Enjoy your tea
3)Take out the tea bag and let it cool
4)Cleanse you face but do not pat it dry
5)Rip the tea bag and take out the green tea leaves
6)Start scrubbing!!

Make sure that you do not aggressively scrub your face.Do it in circular motion and using a light pressure.And of course avoid eye and lip area.After about 1 or 2 minutes of scrubbing,rinse away and you can feel that your skin feels ultra smooth and trust me,brighter.I did not notice it at first but people around me starts to tell me that my skin looks brighter every time I used this scrub.

One more tip,I like to wear facial mask after scrubbing.Any kind of brightening mask will help.

Did you know that green tea has a lot benefits.It help to lose weight,lower the blood pressure,anti-depression and many more!!That is why I love green tea!Start to drink green tea tonight okay?

Good luck and Selamat Hari Raya!

All About Brow

Assalamualaikum , Selamat Sejahtera and Hello!

Happy fasting to all muslims!Do lots of deed in this holy month of Ramadhan okay? ^^
Anyway,I actually wanted to post this last weekend.But,my grandmother passed away.I was absolutely in a sad mood last weekend.Despite all of this happening,I want talk about brow

Starting from this year I starting to do my brow almost everyday. It's weird because before this, I don't know how to do or draw or whatever you call it. Seriously I don't know how I end up doing it everyday. Everyday means everytime I went out. On normal day-like going to classes- I would wear bb cream,mascara and did my brow because somehow I think it 'complete' my look. Sounds weird.haha! I think because my tail of brow is almost none =='

So today,I'm going to review on 2 brow product

The first product is Cyber Colors 24 hr Eyebrow Pen in 02 Dark Brown

 First thing i like about this brow pencil is that,it came with a spooley(?). Next the pencil is angle-shaped so it is easier to draw.The colour is really dark but not close to black. To me , I think the colour is okay for people wearing hijjab. But lighter colour won't harm anyone.Right?Despite the name 24h , it doesn't last that long. I noticed that it only last for about 6 hours. Sometimes I need to re-apply

Second product is M.A.C Brow Set in Beguile

Seriously, I don't know what got into my mind that I've decided to buy M.A.C . The brand is expensive >.< anyway,I like that when I apply this on my eyebrow,it lightens my eyebrow. Usually, i would apply this after I did my brow using the cyber colors. It also made my eyebrow stay put. It has some sort of gold shimmer in it, but it does not make it looks weird. A very nice colour indeed. One thing, it does not stay long as I hope it would.

This is only using the cyber color . I didn't use the M.A.C because...the picture is nowhere to be found when I transfer into my lappy TT______________TT  

p/s:I need to learn how to do a perfect eyebrow!!!
