[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 :

[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

[REVIEW] Victoria Lanolin-Agg-Tval Eggwhite Facial Care Soap


Sweden's Eggwhite Facial Soap has been a part of healthy caring for the skin in Sweden for generations. Originally prepared by Swedish women at home, an eggwhite facial was a weekly tradition to maintain pure and glowing skin. With extracts from plants as cleansing ingredients and added goat milk, the Eggwhite Facial Soap helps to maintain your skin in soft conditions. Suitable for use in the morning as face soap as well as face pack in the evening, the wide usage of this product is convenient and suitable for everyone.

There are a few benefits of this soap that is to shrink pores/ tighten pores, sebum control and moisturize the skin.

Price : RM120 for 3pcs (Now on discount, RM79 for 3pcs!)
Origin : Made in Sweden
Net Weight : 50g x 3
Purchase here : Egg White Soap








HiShop sent me a bar of this soap to try out and this is my first time, I ever heard about this soap. However, it said that this soap has been popular for so long especially in Sweden and many people are loving this.

The soap is packaged in a simple blue paper box and the soap is a little bit yellow in color. However, though this is an egg white soap, it doesn't smell like an egg at all (which is good, of course) but it rather smells rose(?) to me. Some may find it a little bit too strong but I'm liking it because the scent kinda stay on the face.

This egg soap is special because it can be used as a mask, which is you lather up the soap with water and apply to the skin. Wait until 5 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water or just water. This method actually is similar with the normal white egg which is it rips of the impurities on the face. However, this isn't slimy kinda texture, it's just like the other soap.

The foam disappear fast so work fast. The soap can be used to substitute normal cleanser but some others find it to be too dry to be used daily. I've used this for several times but it doesn't dry me out that much as claim by the others review (maybe I didn't lather much I guess) and it does leave me skin brighter and clean.

The soap also claims that it will leave the skin looks glowy but I'm not so sure if I did see it however as I said, it leaves the skin clean after washing.

I didn't have any breakout or itchiness after using it so I had no complain for that.

Overall, I recommend this for you to try. Check the ingredients first if you have sensitive skin.

[REVIEW] Thayers Witch Hazel Alchol-free Toner


Hi guys! I'm done with today's registration for a new semester in college, well it was short and I got nothing left to do until this Sunday so I'm thinking of blogging. 

I get a request to review this toner from Thayers that I got from HiShop, which is not sponsored and I'm buying it by my own because I want to try these toners. I was surprised when it arrives to me, the toner was actually big in size!

I knew that the Rose type is quite popular but I choose Lavender and Cucumber because the description says that the Lavender type is good for problem skin and the Cucumber is good to freshen up the skin. I basically need that and I'll probably try the Rose next time. If you're not keen of any of these fragrance, they also have the original witch hazel.





These toners from Thayers arealcohol-free, paraben-free, pthalate-free, moisturizes and cleanses which is everything that you might looking for in a toner. I was bought by these descriptions and seen tons of good reviews about these toners.

I would like to point out the smell over all. I'm not familiar with the witch hazel plant since it was not available in my country but based on my searches, it seems to be a plant with many benefits and most likely to be safe when applies to the skin. I was startled by the bad smell of it when I first used the toner. I thought it was expired but found out that because it was un-distilled witch hazel, the smell of the plant is stronger, which is the real smell of witch hazel. It smelled kind of old grandma powder or something..haha BUT it gradually grow on me and I'm no longer bothered much by the smell now. Maybe the slight Lavender/ Cucumber fragrance made the smell better.

Out of two, my most favourite is the Lavender, maybe because of the Lavender smells really good. I like on how these toners moisturize my skin enough after the skin tight from all the face washing. Although I said it gives moisture but you mustn't skipped all the next steps of moisturizing.

The toner is just the most toners out there which is watery and absorbs really fast on the skin and will dry in no time. I would say that it does a great job in calming the skin. I had red patches on the face and it really calms my skin especially after washing my face.

Overall, this is a good toner to try out. I think this could be a great mist too in case you're not bothered by the smell of course.

I rate this :
-minus a star because of the smell.

Thank you for reading :)

[REVIEW] Cloud 9 Blanc de Whitening Cream


Hi guys! Today is my last day at home and I'm pretty sad, I seriously don't want to start a new semester and back to study again after a month break T_T

But I'm still excited to blog today and I'll be reviewing this Cloud 9 Whitening cream that has been featured in Get It Beauty, 2 years back I think?

The brand also released the serum under the same line but it was a bit pricey for me to get it on my haul last time so I didn't buy it ;(







The content should be 90% full of the jar but since I've already used a part of it so it left this much.

The texture is really like a pudding, it looks crumbly but it spread like water.




Not sure if you notice, but my hand were brighter after I blended it out and there is a little bit of glow too.

I didn't follow every episode of Get It Beauty but I stumble upon the video about this cream before I made my haul and I just fell in love right away. Basically, they gave a box of this cream as well as capsicum to a few testers to see whether their skin made an improvement in decreasing in melanin after a while. The testers are all succeed in the test which the staff used a specific machine to test that. However, I didn't consume capsicum since I'm not a fan nor I had the proper machine to test out my skin.

Have you heard about the instant whitening product which is the Snow White Milky Pack? If you do then this cream gave the same effect of instant whitening to the skin and a little bit of glow except that you don't have to wash the cream after you applied it on. 

I like the instant whitening so much that I usually go out just with the cream on and people still asked what type of cream that I used because it looked great. Another plus point is that the cream won't leave a white residue even if I'm sweating. Usually this type of cream would smears off while sweating and leave an ugly white residue on the face but this is not.

I also love the fresh fragrance. Not too sure if it is flowery or else but it sure smells good :)

If you ask, did my skin became whiter? I'm still not too sure about that because I don't use this regularly but what I do notice is even after I washed off the cream, my skin still look bright and fresh.

Another great thing about that the cream is that its a great base to my makeup. I tried several times by putting this cream before I apply primer or just straight to foundation and it made my makeup sets in pretty well, extending the hours that my foundation will start to cake up. 

The only negative about this is this doesn't provide moisture. It absorbs really fast on the skin and would dry off like nothing have been applied to the skin. So if you're under the dry skin category, you will need a proper moisturizer that will avoid your skin of becoming too dry. For an oily skin like me, I still feel that it was a bit too dry but it doesn't bother me much after a while.

Overall, I'm in love with this cream. The instant brightening that it gives really make my whole complexion different from the usual dull skin.

I rate this:
