Random Beauty Haul

Assalamualaikum / Hi,

I bought a few kinda things since December up to January. February i'm supposed to sit still at home since i'm nearing my due date, but still had to go out and get a hair cut before baby arrives. Anyway let's start.

Had a day out with the sis and went to checkout Festival Mall in Setapak. At the same time i had to shop for my first International Beauty Swap (which i will write in another post later). Had some unused vouchers from Worthy Books Ladies Edition and decided to drop by the Mask Slim outlet. After grabbing a few TT Mask for my beauty swap partner and myself (yes i had an excuse b'coz i was running out of mask, no kid). Decided to drop by Sasa and shop for a makeup remover. The very pleasant Sales Assistant was recommending me some other brand, but since my budget was around RM30 i couldn't afford the brand that she was promoting. 

She than suggested this makeup remover under Sasatinnie brand. They had two types one was rose and the other was chamomile. I decided to take the chamomile and i'm not sure if you can see, but the mixture in the bottle is actually separated in two, you have to shake the bottle prior to using it.

- Enriched with Chamomile Extract, this gentle remover cleanses away makeup and dirts while purifies skin without clogging pores. It's unique biphasic formula can be rinsed off easily which leaves skin supple and non-tacky - 

As you can see it's pretty obvious that the first swipe is not enough to remove the waterproof makeup. The fact is i have to keep wiping off my waterproof makeup a few times before it's totally cleared off my face, well mostly my eye area.

The item cost less than RM30 for a 180ml bottle, but i don't recommend purchasing this, b'coz it does leave a stinging feel especially if you're removing makeup around the eye area. Might look around and try out other brands. If you have any recommendation please do leave it in the comment box below.

Next thing that i purchased and tried out is this 2 in 1 Innovative Ampoule and Super Mask Treatment. I've heard of masks like this before but never tried it before. So when i saw this in Guardian at a promotional price of RM 13.88 for 2pcs (if i can remember), i decided to give it a try. I chose Double Intensive Whitening & Double Intensive Hydration (1 sheet in each packet + with 3ml ampoule).


This is how the ampoule looks like (excuse the distracting background). 

Double Intensive Whitening
- 3ml Brightening Serum
- 1 super fit absorption with use of Japan Cupra Mask Sheet

Contains 12 Korean herbal ingredients. Brightens and evens skin tone for a radiant complexion.

Double Intensive Hydration
- 3ml Brightening Serum
- 1 super fit absorption with use of Japan Cupra Mask Sheet

Contains 12 Korean herbal ingredients. Hydrates and softens the skin while promoting skin renewal. 

Though this is not the kind of mask i normally used (which by the way is TT Mask) but i decided to give this a try. And alhamdulillah, it works well with my skin. It's always nice trying out new brands and new methods. For eg for this mask, the first step is applying the ampoule all over the face. 2nd step is when you put the mask on and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. The ampoule is more of a watery texture, it reminds me of the Hado Labo product, whereby you just apply and keep tapping the face until the ampoule is half absorb, and than later layering the face sheet mask on.
And b'coz the item was already in the fridge, it leaves a cool feeling through out the whole time. I just massaged the residue that's left after removing the face mask to complete the whole regime. ^_^
Will i recommend this product, oh yes... especially when it's selling at a promotional price. I'm still not sure what's the retail price, will have to drop by Guardian again to check it out. 

Next product is the EOS Lip Balm in Summer Fruit. I found out about this item when Sabrina from did a review on it on her blog. Yes this is not the normal lip balm as you can see, it looks more like a lychee or rambutan without the hair of course... hahaha. 

Anyway i was so intrigue by it, i decided to give the FB page a visit. Yup she did leave the link on her blog and it's Beautiful Beauty Buys - Malaysia (FB). They have items ranging from Bath Body Works (BBW), EOS lip balms and etc. Some items are available in stock, while others are pre-order. 

Coincidence there was an opening for a pre-order in December 2013 and i decided to jump into the bandwagon. The ETA was sometime around Early-Mid January 2014, the item cost RM 28 including postage. 

Back in the US there are 8 different flavors to choose, but for BBB they only have 5 flavors available.

So if you ladies are interested in purchasing this product, which i know most of you will be tempted too, you can check out Beautiful Beauty Buys - Malaysia

*Verdict: Love, love, love the product not just b'coz it's cute and compact, but it also has a yummy scent and taste. You just feel like licking your lips all the time, but than it won't serve it's purpose which is to moisturize the lips, right. So In Shaa Allah in future if i have more funds, i'll purchase more which of course will be in other flavors. Coz it might take a while before it finishes. ;)

Ellips Hair Vitamin - Hair Treatment

Purchased this in Guardian with the lil sis, it was around RM 14 for 2 boxes. So we decided to share, she took one box and i took one box. It's pretty easy to use, just open the capsule and squeeze the product from the capsule. The scent is nice and it leaves the hair feeling moisturize. Would definitely purchase it again.

So that's about it for now, i have loads of pending post. Due to the lil angel i have now, all blog post are delayed. Will try to find some time to finish it up, so till than

Assalamualaikum ^_^

Kak Mel, please buy Bifesta Cleansing Water je lepas ni, takyah tukar dah. this is the most awesome makeup remover other than Biore wipes, a HG product. it doesnt sting my eyes as far as i can remember, and it has a few variants according to your skin type. the price is below rm30, the bottle is huge and it has a pump. for me RM20+ might sound expensive for a makeup remover but cheap inefficient makeup removers wont make our skin any better, so better invest in a good product. i'm on my third bottle now, i simply cant think of anything better than Bifesta :) you can get it at watsons and also sasa. Illy has personally reviewed it too on her blog! Sab pun kata dia suka Bifesta. But Kak Mel can try Pixy Gentle & Moist Cleansing Lotion as well, a bit cheaper (sesuai dgn poket student macam Mieza, hehe) but tak banyak mcm Bifesta. It works well too, beli kat Watsons juga. I hope this helps!

Asallamualaikum Mieza,

Actually post ni dah lama nak post tapi hari ni baru sempat. Anyway mel dah beli Pixy punya makeup remover, sbb ingat lagi yg both Sabrina Tajuddin & Sabrina N. Azmi ada review item tersebut. Definitely love Bifesta b'coz i had a mini one from Vanity Trove when they were still under their HQ in Singapore, somehow i didn't know where to get it, until recently when they started advertising on TV that i knew Sasa carried that brand. Now that you mentioned Watson i have to go check it out, but most probably in the bigger outlets only, small outlets mesti xde. Even the Pixy masa pegi outlet Guardian nearby my house dah habis, pergi kat Watson pun botol kecik je ada. But since using it, i've been loving it very gentle to the eyes.
