Althea Korea Haul : Innisfree & Laneige


Hi guys! Today I'll be sharing with you about my latest haul with Althea Korea.

Althea Korea is the latest Malaysia online shopping sites featuring Korean beauty products. It is based in Korea but basically it was targeting mostly Malaysian. However, shipping is international! So to those who lived outside Malaysia, you also have chance to shop with Athea except that you have to convert the price to your preferable currency yourself.

It arrives to me in this pink package! How cute is that?

I love the details of this box, never gonna throw it out ;P



Take a look closely, there's no shipping charge because every RM150 spent, you got free shipping!

Every product is packaged individually in bubble wraps with Althea stickers!

The first item! I've been wanting this for so long and because it is expensive so I wanted to swatch on the counter first before buying but since Althea sells it for a cheaper price, I just HAVE to get it!lol

I know this serum was raved everywhere and I haven't got chance to try this out because always distracted with newer released and finally I have it!yeay~

Bought these two just for fun, lol but it was RM5 each, so why not? It's CHEAP!

I'm a part of the Beta Testers for Althea website and we were given RM150 each to spend on the site before the launch (July 1st) and I'm so excited yet so confuse which to buy coz I want all of them! But I finally made decision to buy all above 4 items after a week, haha

Althea's website is so simple and had the modern touch to it. You can simply navigate to any sections listed which they had broken down to makeup, skincare, cleanser, pack & mask, whitening and new arrivals.

As far as I know, the payment system available for now is Paypal but I think they're currently in the process of adding bank transfer as one of the payment, which is would be easier for me as well.

They offered a quite reasonable price! I've tried adding the same items on testerkorea added with k-packet shipping options and althea definitely offered a cheaper price! The reason I tried it with K-packet instead of normal Korean Registered Mail is because althea offered pretty similar delivery to K-Packet which I got my parcel exactly in 5 days after I ordered. How fast is that?! And compared to K-Packet which will take over by Pos Malaysia after it entered Malaysia, the service that althea used was either using Ta.Q.Bin or Skynet after it entered Malaysia which from my experience with Skynet, they take care of my parcel carefully and even called me before the delivery (though they called in the morning and delivered it in the evening =.=)

One exciting note is when you shop with althea, they will sent your orders in the above Althea Box! I'm super happy that they put much thoughts in that because who wouldn't be happy to received a well packaged parcel right? They even wrapped each products individually with bubble wraps and althea stickers on each as well as pink paper to protect the product. The box is also bubble wrap to protect the shape :D

For now, there is only a few products in the website which is the top picks and bestseller products. Hopefully they'll take request later coz I'm definitely going back to purchase more!

Current promotion, Every RM100 spent, you can get free shipping! Use this code ATA150 for RM20 off RM150 order!

Thank you for reading, I shall review all of these soon!

[REVIEW] ephyra Skin Bar [Before & After] Part.2


If you think you're having a deja-vu, I would want to clarify that this is my second part of my review for this skin bar. You're welcome to read the first part here. I would also do bilingual language review today so just pray I can do it?haha

Assalamualaikum, untuk review kali ni Mizu akan tulis dalam dua bahasa sebab kebanyakan pengguna ephyra berasal dari Malaysia jadi mungkin ini akan membantu sedikit sebanyak. Ini merupakan review kedua Mizu untuk ephyra skin bar ni. Bagi yang ingin membaca bahagian 1, boleh tekan link ni untuk pergi ke post pertama.



Since it's launched, ephyra skin bar have been receiving a lot of positive feedback from its user and that's including me [as you can see in the part.1 post] because it's cheap (RM39) per bar and it can be used all over the body.

Selepas pelancaran sabun ephyra ni, ramai pengguna telah memberi feedback yang sangat positif dan itu termasuklah Mizu sendiri. [boleh tengok review tu di link tadi]. Harga sabun ephyra ini sangat berpatutan iaitu RM39 dan ia boleh digunakan pada seluruh badan.








From the two pictures above, you can see clearly on how much my skin has improved by using this skin bar. I don't have a strict skincare routine so based on that I can see on how much this soap has impacted my skin.

Daripada dua gambar di atas, memang jelas sangat yang sabun ephyra ni memang sangat membantu kulit Mizu  untuk pulih. Mizu tiada skincare routine yang sangat ketat jadi bila perubahan macam ni berlaku dekat kulit Mizu sendiri, memang nampak sangat kesannya.

What I love about this soap is that it smells really good and the ingredients used is very skin friendly. It instantly cleaned my skin from the oil and dirt and leave my pores tight after each wash. As you might know, my skin is acne-prone and oily so this soap has been a major help to keep away those nasty things on my face.

Apa yang membuatkan Mizu suka sangat dengan sabun ini adalah sebab penggunaan bahan-bahan di dalam sabun ni yang tidak membahayakan kulit selain daripada baunya yang sangat harum. Kulit Mizu sangat berminyak dan mudah berjerawat jadi sabun ni memang telah banyak membantu Mizu untuk mengelak dari jerawat-jerawat baru timbul dan juga mengurangkan pengeluaran minyak yang boleh menyebabkan jerawat dan blackhead/whitehead.

Another than that, this soap also have made my skin much brighter than it used to be. The weather in Malaysia is really hot nowadays and it's quite hard to maintain a lighter skin and I'm glad that this soap can also brighten the skin with the Gluthathione ingredient.

Selain itu, kulit Mizu juga telah banyak berubah dari segi kecerahannya. Sangat susah nak maintain warna kulit supaya jadi cerah sentiasa disebabkan cuaca Malaysia yang sangat panas. Jadi, dengan adanya sabun ephyra yang juga mempunyai bahan Gluthathione untuk mencerahkan kulit, Mizu dapat maintain kulit untuk jadi cerah walaupun dalam cuaca yang panas.

I really recommend for you to try this soap because I had no breakout nor itchiness while using this and it certainly have made my skin brighter. It also can be used through out the body.

Mizu sangat rekomen sabun ni terutamanya yang mempunyai masalah kulit yang sama dengan Mizu. Setakat ini, Mizu memang tiada masalah dengan peggunaan sabun ni. Harga pun sangat berpatutan dan satu biji sabun boleh bertahan selama 3 minggu hingga satu bulan mengikut cara penggunaan.


ephyra had recently launched a "selfie" contest, before & after photo on instagram. Do follow them to join! I myself not excluded to join for sure since my phone broke the other day *sigh* finger crossing!

ephyra sekarang ni sedang membuat kontes "selfie" before & after dekat instagram dan hadiahnya ialah iPhone6! Anda semua memang digalakkan untuk menyertai kontes yang sangat mudah ni. Hanya upload gamba selfie di instagram dan hastag ephyra. Kontest berakhir pada 31 July 2015.

[REVIEW] FINE JAPAN Love Nail - Instant Nail Applique


 HiShop sent me this nail file sticker to be try out. If you're familiar with FINE JAPAN, they are quite popular with the collagen powder and supplement powder.

This is my first ever trying a nail sticker so pardon me if it looks bad..haha










I know there is something wrong with this picture, however I can't control it..haha
Anyway, this is the step-by-step of applying the stickers. Step 3, I already applied the top coat sticker on top.



This nail sticker is created in terms that it performs as good as you get your nails done in salon. This set consists of 1x20 file of fancy sticker and 2x20 files of clear nail sticker, which is also named as the top coat. There is also a pink sand paper file and a bamboo stick in this set.

This is my first time doing this and it took me about 1 hour to do my left nails.haha but the instructions are easy to follow and they're all easy to handle.

There are quite chemical, nail polish smell to it and the glue of each sticker is pretty strong. I find that the stick is especially helpful is arranging the sticker and stick it onto the nail.

This nail sticker is waterproof. The description says that it can be remove by the nail remover but I doubt that because I can just peel it off. Maybe the excess the glue won't be remove that easily so I really recommend rubbing an olive oil or any other oil that you can find to remove the excess glue.

The finish is quite adorable to me especially the girly and cutesy design. I think they do have more design to this. One thing that might be or might not be a little let down is that the top coat looks a little bit fake to act as top coat when you view it nearer but it looks fine from afar.

Overall, I really recommend this nail set to anyone of you that don't want to wait for drying time or messy nail polish paint on the nail.

I rate this :

All thanks to HiShop for sending me this wonderful product!

[REVIEW] Bawang Ladies Hair Fall Control Set


You probably always seen the Bawang shampoo advertisement that featured in Jackie Chan. This time the brand released a set of hair care special for ladies. The set came in a full red package with yellow-gold details making it looks luxurious! This set is special for ladies who have hair fall problem like me.

Type : Hair Fall Care
Price : RM69.90 (Now on discount, RM62.91)





Ingredients list for Shampoo.

Ingredients list for Conditioner.

Also came with user guide.



I have only heard about Bawang shampoo on TV that always had Jackie Chan in it but that shampoo is mainly targeting male(?) I think and the brand now released this special hair fall care set for ladies which looks more appealing with the red packaging, the opposite of the black package shampoo that Jackie Chan promoted.

First and foremost, I was really excited about the scent and it didn't disappoint me. It is almost similar to Herbal Essences smell but milder.

I always neglected my hair but thankfully I don't have much problem with my hair except for the hair fall. I notice that I have quite frequent hair fall these days and I think it was caused by the stress. Well, it can't be help to not to be stress out so that's why this kind of shampoo exist to help.

The shampoo is light, almost watery in texture and lather up pretty well with only a tiny squeeze. I didn't have problem with the shampoo because it performs well to my hair. It doesn't dry out my strands of hair and it clean well.

The problem lies with the conditioner. It is like a thick paste in texture and is just more than enough for my short hair. I'm not sure what's the cause but the conditioner will harden up my hair after a while. I also realized that it dry out my hair and it looks a bit puffed up (not sure if this what they called volume up, haha) but I didn't like that very much but as I said the "volume up" criteria might be appealing to some of you.

On the positive side, it does lessen up the amount of my hair fall. Honestly my hair fall wasn't critical but at least this hair care does their job :D
