[REVIEW] Zahara Breatheable Nail Polish - Halal and Wudhu Friendly!


Hi guys!

I would like to thank Zahara Cosmetics (Insta : @lovefromzahara) for sending these oxygen nail polish a.k.a water permeable nail polish to me💅. It is a wudhu-friendly nail polish that I'm very excited to try and I knew these nail polishes got viral back then but I never really try one.

They send me "Blush Crush" which is a candy pink in color and "Simply Covered" which is nude in color, kinda your-nails-but-better 😉







My application is kinda....emm...



I lovvvee this kind of remover since it is easy to use! Just dip to remove!


I did a week of testing with both colors and surprisingly got tons of compliments on how pretty it looks despite the not-so-great application by me since I raaareely wear nail polish.

In terms of wearability, I'd say this is comfortable to wear. I had problems with non-breatheable nail polish since it feels suffocated on my nails but with the thin coats I did with this, it does feels light on hand. I suggest a light coat or about one of two coats to let your nails breathe and wudhu can go through. It's halal too so you don't have to remove it to perform your solat.

It's not a peel-off nail polish that you'd see a lot in the market nowadays and you need a nail polish remover to remove it. Luckily Zahara carries a remover and I tried and it removes the nail polish effortlessly with the dip-to-remove remover style.

These nail polishes are FREE from Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor which these ingredients can cause cancer, birth defects, allergies, and poisonous to health. How crazy to think that a lot of nail polish have these! 😱

The colors are pigmented and it dries really fast once you put them on so try to apply as fast as you can before it gets tacky and for a clean coat. 

By far, "Simply Covered" is my favourite because it really doesn't seem like you wear one but still want to look gorg in class 😆
"Blush Crush" would be nice for a fun outing I'd say 😊

Get yours from Zahara Cosmetics,

[REVIEW] Secret Key Tattoo Eyebrow Tint Pack


Hello~

Today, I'll be reviewing this eyebrow tint from Secret Key. It is one of the peel off tint that you might have seen around Kbeauty community and it is also my first time trying this peel off trend. I don't know why but I'm not that interested before but now I do..haha

So, in short, I saw this on althea.kr and I needed a new eyebrow pencil, then coincidentally came across this and thought why not? that's how the story goes.

I bought this for RM on althea.kr, make sure to check them out!



Soft brush tip.

I know there isn't a lot of pictures here but I have a great demo of it in a video that I posted on my instagram and I'll link it here so you can watch it.

A video posted by Mizu (@ashihana) on


My verdict:

1) Long lasting
On my instagram, I said that the tint will disappear after one wash and yes it does. I did try of using it just for half an hour as well as 1-2 hours testing on me and I find that the longer to leave it to dry on your eyebrow, the better color outcome as well as it won't wash out easily when you clean your face. If you did leave it for hours, the next time you wash your face, there still would be traces left.
The tint won't budge nor disappear as long as you don't wash that part of eyebrow.

2) Color
I chose cafe latte color which is a light toffee brown color and it does came out like the ad photos they shown. This color would be awkward on me without an extra help of the same color browcara since my hair is black. By the way, I do love the color on me, just personal preference.

3) Smell
There isn't much smell to it once you peel it off and the wet liquid certainly smells a bit like glue but I don't think it would bother anyone since it wasn't that strong.

4) Easy peel off
My brows is a little on the bushy side, certainly not really full but the hair is long so that's why it is hard to control. I find it is easier to peel off if you leave it for 1-2 hours but if you don't want to wait for that long, the liquid would still be a little wet and making it a little hard to peel. 

Overall, I like it and would repurchase it again :)

[REVIEW] Son&Park Beauty Water 500ml


Hey guys!

Today I'll be sharing my review for this all-time raved Beauty Water from Son&Park.
I bought this from althea.kr for about RM175 for 500ml (the biggest one they had!) and they are eligible for free shipping since orders above RM99, you'll get free shipping. That's s super deal right?! And to add, I also got a free Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence in one of their event which you'll get one free item of your choice. I actually wanted to buy the combo, Beauty Water and Beauty Gel but sadly the Beauty Gel is out of stock that time so I chose the Benton instead. Both are great deal anyway since I'd love to try either one.

Here's a little info that you might want to know about this product;
  1. A multitasking toner and cleansing water that creates a clean base for any skin care and makeup that follows. 
  2. The Beauty Water is not just a cleanser, it also has mild exfoliation abilities with willow bark and papaya extract to help sweep away dead skin cells, revealing brighter skin tone and smoother texture. Lavender water, rose water, and orange fruit extract impart a subtle hydration so your skin can be prepped to absorb the next skin care steps, while adding in a bit of moisture.
  3. Beauty Water can be used in the morning to create the perfect canvas for makeup application, midday as a refresher and night after cleansing to whisk away remaining impurities. For normal, oily, dry, and combinations skin types. Beauty Water has a pH of 4.5, effectively resetting the skin's natural pH after cleansing. - source Sokoglam.


I tried to darken the words written on the box since they're so light in color.

Hope you can see them :)


Not my favourite type of packaging since it is easy to spill.


I just want to refer it as a toner (although it is a multitasking product). I uses a lot of toner on my skincare routine and I feel like it is the first product that I want them to penetrate my skin after all the face cleansing to refresh it back and give it some moisture before putting more skincare on top.

The first time I uses this is without cotton pad since I always dislike cotton pad because it soaks too much liquid and waste the product. So the first time I probably a little excited and put on a lot of it on my face and there's a little white foam residue can be seen, which is later disappears. This is kind of white foam usually gives an extra moisture and this time it definitely does!I actually had no idea since I really thought that this will be a normal plain toner..(I admit that I actually didn't read any of the information before buying this, I'm buying it coz everyone says that it's good).

The second time I tried it with a cotton pad (since I've read all the information for this second try and cotton pad is said to be important) and it does soak the product but lesser than I would normally use without cotton pad. Since it has an abundant moisture, the cotton pad itself doesn't dry in itself and it was enough to give my skin moisture that I want. 

It is says that the Beauty Water will remove impurities or any residue makeup that wasn't cleanse thoroughly. By reading this I really thought it's not gonna change anything since I trust my cleansing oil and my cleansing routine to clean all the nasty stuff. My first try with cotton pad I actually didn't spot any difference, like if there's any residue or whatsoever but then after like a few tries, I do realizes that sometimes the cotton pad will change color from white to a veryyyyyyy subtle yellow, which is almost unnoticeable if I didn't really look through so I guess it does remove all the remaining nasty stuff that I can't reach while cleansing.

Since then, the Beauty Water has been my number one trusted product and I uses it pretty much every time I wash my face. I religiously applying this toner with cotton pad whenever I wash my face. An important time that I always use this is when I wanted to go to bed. I don't really want to go through all the cleansing again since I did with daily night bath time around 7 p.m but I had to apply "before-bed-time-skincare" around 12 a.m so I always uses this toner to clean all the sebum on face before applying more skincare.

Some things that I wanted to point out while using this, I don't have any redness appeared after applying this or I think it does tone down the redness I got from cleansing (it's a normal thing coz after my skincare done, I got redness too but it'll fade away). It also doesn't break me out nor irritate my skin which is a plus thing for me because sometimes some product can make some areas on my face itchy and I hated it. Brightening? I'm not so sure about this. Lastly, it also doesn't dry out the skin or tightens them.

To those who might be concern about the ingredients, yes, it has all the paraben that you might afraid of as well the alcohol denat. I know some of my friends were sensitive to these ingredients so watch out for that before buying it.

Oh one last thing, it says that there is lavender water in it but I definitely detect the rose smell stronger in it. It also has a sweet-like scent to it which I really love. 

Overall, I'm recommending this toner if you love multitasking product. Grab the smaller version 340ml or a sample( which I'm not sure where you can get this little sample) to try since this is worth the raved everyone was talking about on the internet.
