Beauty Talk | Hair Care Treatments You Can Do At Home

Friday, 9 June 2017

Do you know that you can give a boost to your hair to keep it shiny, healthy and strong with one of the many effective spa treatments that you can do at home? I've been giving more attention to taking care of my hair especially the recent weeks as it's getting hotter and more humid than usual.

Some of the treatments are more like a mask that is applied to the scalp and the rest of the hair while others are an oil that is rubbed into the scalp before you rinse the hair.

Honey and Milk

One of the easy applications to the hair that will leave it soft and shiny is a combination of milk and honey. Mix a tablespoon of honey and a cup of milk, applying it from the scalp to the ends of the hair. Massage the mixture well before shampooing and rinsing.

Coconut Cream

This is an application that will leave your hair smelling like a tropical beach. There is a high amount of saturated fat in coconut, which is good for repairing any damage that has been done to the hair. All you need to do is combine fresh coconut and coconut oil in a blender. Rub the mixture between the hands to get it warm before you apply it to the scalp. Massage the head for five minutes before you cover the head with a warm towel. This will create a steam treatment for the scalp and the hair. Wash with warm water, and avoid using a blow dryer as this can dry out the hair.

Strawberry Treatment

If you're looking for an aromatic treatment for the hair, then you'll want to make a strawberry mask. Mix an egg yolk and a cup of fresh strawberries in a bowl. You also want to add a tablespoon of olive oil to the mixture. Massage the paste into the scalp and the rest of the hair, rinsing after 15 minutes.

PLT Style | Summer Sunnies by Warby Parker

Monday, 24 April 2017


Already planned to go somewhere this summer? I bet you do as summertime is just around the corner. I can already see tourists flooding our city area with their shorts and t-shirts just like the rest of us here. As it's always hot and sunny in Malaysia, I'd say sunglasses aren't merely a fashion staple but also a sort of requirement (same goes with high-SPF sunscreens) while we're out in the sun.    

Review | TheFaceShop Oil Control Water Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ V205 Dark Beige

Sunday, 2 April 2017

This takes me back to 2013 when I first reviewed my first cushion makeup item, a CC Cream from the same brand. Long gone the days when I don't like coverage for my skin. 

When it comes to cushion foundation or base makeup, I always opted for items with sebum control for oily T-zone, medium to full coverage and long wear. Of course, the shade should be natural and doesn't make me look like a ghost. I don't know if 2 tone lighter than your natural skin tone is  trend for you but not moi. 



So today I'll be reviewing a cushion foundation from TheFaceShop which is the Oil Control Water Cushion that offers long-lastingness, moisture and coverage at that.

Beauty Empties | March

Friday, 31 March 2017

It's the end of the month so I guess it's time for a Empties post. I gotta admit that every time I went through my Empties bin, I felt good. I used to throw out beauty products unfinished but I've been looking forward to this post at the end of every quarter of the year. So without further ado, let's get started!


For makeup remover, I ran out of my favourite cleansing water which is the The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Water. This is probably my third bottle but I don't even know why I haven't done a review on this yet. Coming soon, I promise!

That Etude House Milky You Cleansing Foam is so gentle and I've been using it almost every morning. It's great but I'd love trying out new cleansers so I won't be buying this any time soon.

Beauty Essential | Skincare for Short Travel

Wednesday, 15 February 2017

Throughout the time I was in university, I only travel domestically from KK, Sabah to KL so it was never a necessity for me to have my toiletries and skincare items in mini sizes except the time when I traveled to Singapore for a day and I did just borrowed my best friends' stuff. LOL

For the past few months, I've been taking short trips to KL and overseas so today I wanna share with you guys my skincare essentials for a quick getaway or weekender.


I usually pack my essentials in 2 separate bags; the square toiletries bag from Innisfree Korea that I always place in my luggage and that travel pouch from Sephora that I carry in my Herschel backpack.

Fashion Haul | Charles & Keith Backpack and Wrislet

Friday, 3 February 2017

With New Year and upcoming holiday, I got some extra cash on hands so I was wondering what I should get to kick-start 2017 to motivate myself though let's be honest here. There were sale literally at every corner of the shopping malls! As I looked through my bag collection, I noticed that my purse is quite worn out so I decided to get myself a new one but of course, I just HAD to get that backpack the moment I laid my eyes on it. 


If you don't know me, then you probably should know that other than my Baju Kurung for office wear, I only wear blacks. Tops, bottoms, scarves, accessories, and most importantly, bags. I do have other colours for clothes but I preferably wear blacks to almost everywhere I go other than my workplace and of course, weddings.

Out With My Girls #2


First, the outfit. When it comes to outerwear. I love plaid shirts paired with plain t-shirt and a pair of damaged jeans. It's simple and just perfect for hanging out. To add a little edge to it, I choose Timberland boots. From malling to street photography, these boots just do it all. 

For accessories, I think a simple black watch and glasses can match the whole outfit plus those nail polishes! I'm loving the formulation, really!

To carry all my necessities, I think a sling bag is enough plus I'll be just carrying a small camera, card holder and my phone (of course, some makeup items) but I guess it'll do. A small pom pom keychain adds a cute element to it. 

For makeup, I opted for high coverage foundation so Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation and for point makeup, I want dark eyeshadows hence Urban Decay Naked Smoky with Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita that last all day long. 

Of course, my final piece would be a Starbucks tumbler. I'm still looking for that black-coloured one though. 

Until next time!

Review | Sakura Kokoro Halal Japanese Skincare

Sunday, 29 January 2017


The only time I had the chance trying out Japanese skincare was when I was so curious about why Jun Ji Hyun replaced Park Han Byul as the ambassador of Hado Labo skincare and I ended up buying trial kit for its most known moisturising line. Today, I have the opportunity to share with you guys about this line of skincare which is also from Japan, Sakura Kokoro Halal Skincare by H&N Cosmetics, carried by Ippin.com.my

About Sakura Kokoro:
H&N Cosmetic's halal skincare products are easy to use and gentle on the skin, aiming not only for Muslim women, but also for local Japanese and for those who have sensitive skin. Its packaging is lightweight and easy to take with you wherever you go.

Sakura Kokoro skincare contains natural ingredients including Yoshino cherry tree leaf extract, lactic acid bacilli and fermented soy milk, grape vine extract, and damask rose flower extract, with ability to lighten the skin and improve skin appearance to promote beautiful skin.

There are 4 products comprising this skincare line and I'm going to share with you guys 3 of them which includes the facial cleanser, moisturiser, and BB Cream. I've been on easy 3-step skincare in the morning for the past few months so getting into this line of skincare is truly easy.

Review | Melati Halal Japanese Skincare

Friday, 27 January 2017

Makeup removers are among those products that ran like water. Well, at least to me, it kinda is as I can somewhat stretch my facial cleansers as I use different products according to my mood and I have separate cleansers for morning and evening but during weekdays where I usually wear wakeup to work, I tend to use one makeup remover throughout the month. 

I recently got this makeup remover from Ippin.com.my to try so I'll be sharing with you guys my thoughts on this very product. 


First, let me talk a little bit about this Melati Halal Japanese skincare line. Melati is a skincare line that is specialising in makeup removal, moisturising and sun protection products. The brand combines high quality Japanese cosmetic products with Islamic principles. 

Product Description:

This gel contains extract from coix lacryma-jobi ma-yuen seed (Adlay Coix seed) and Prunus lannesiana (a kind of cherry blossom), which has been well-known and loved since ancient times, for its effect to smooth, refine, and tone skin, prevent dark spots resulted from sun exposure, and moisturise skin. Continuous use of Melati skin care products to maintain natural, healthy, glowing skin.

Blogger Mail | Melati and Sakura Kokoro | HALAL Japanese Skincare

Wednesday, 25 January 2017

Previously, I talked about an online shopping site that is based in Tokyo, Japan that not only offering variable products ranging from Japanese food, fashion and of course, Japanese beauty products but also simple ordering process and effortless shipping all the way from Japan. No worry on authenticities of the products as Ippin.com.my are monitoring their merchants closely and providing direct customer services. 

Around last month, I received a package from them which contains Japanese skincare and makeup items so today I'm going to share with you guys these items as shown below so without further adieu, let's get right into it!


First thing first, let's talk about the shipping process. I received the package in exactly 9 days including weekends after I was notified about the shipment. 9 days is quite fast considering they're merely using Japan Post Express Mail Service. As of right now, they don't give their customer to select their choice of delivery and it's quite understandable as if you've been to the site, different products have different allocated time for shipping and some of them even comes with Free Shipping. 

The items came in that sturdy regular box and each item was bubble-wrapped separately and there are layers of bubble wrapper that line the inner of the box for more protection.

Now, let's go to good stuffs the store sent me.
