Sep 29, 2014

Olla everyone!

How’s your day today? Hope everything is great at your end. Today I would like to share with you a review about this FLAT TOP Foundation Brush by Colours Cosmetic which are officially launched today.. yes today!! Last couple of weeks, I received this Reviewer’s Edition that look like the picture below, cute huh?

Let’s have a closer look of this Flat Top Foundation Brush. Honestly, I cant have enough number of make-up brush. Sturdy cosmetics brushes are the key tool in applying your makeup. If you apply to much you will look like a clown and if you apply to little you will look pale and sickly. I personally feel that in order to have that flawless look, the correct application brush makes all the difference in the world!

FYI, this FLAT TOP Foundation Brush by Colours Cosmetic is a synthetic brush. Before I go further, let me share with you the difference between natural brushes and synthetic brushes.

Natural Brushes are made from animal hair. The bristles are usually goat hair, pony hair, badger, squirrel, etc. Each type of hair comes in various quality ranges. Natural are usually hand-shaped and glued. They range from being silky soft to rough and scratchy. This just depends on the quality of the bristles. Natural brushes do have a tendency to shed somewhat, depending upon the quality. No judging here, but I would personally support synthetic brush over natural brush due to my support towards animal friendly products.

On the other hand, synthetic Brushes are made using synthetic materials. These also range from cheap and rough-feeling to super nice, soft and silky bristles. Synthetic brushes do not have a tendency to shed, since they are synthetic, the bristles tend to melt into the ferrule, and "stick" together better. Which is a great plus point for this brush. Since it is 100% cruelty free product. If you are a Muslim like me, you don’t even have to worry what type of “fur” they are using as it is synthetic bristle. Basically, the choice is yours whether you like to use natural brushes or synthetic brushes.

There are several brushes out there in the market place and it can be confusing as to which one is right for you. Some brushes are very important for ease of application. Others are out there just to have you buy yet another brush to add to your collection and in the end you find yourself saying "Why did I buy this one?" I recommend that you keep your brushes separate from different minerals, example-foundation brush only used for your foundation minerals, veil brush only for your veil, bronzer brush only for bronzers, etc. This way you never have the wrong mineral on your brush, example-what if you are going to apply your foundation and you have blush on the brush now you have blush all over your face and who wants that????

I like how cute this Flat top brush is, not too big and not too long so can easily slot into my travel make up bag. Great thanks to its palm-size feature. The glossy wood handle make the brush look classy too? It reminds me of sigma brushes. For RM55 a piece this is totally worth way more than the cost. There are so many brushes out there which cost a fortune if you want top notch quality brushes. TRUST me on this.

If you have only few makeup tools in your kit, make sure this FLAT TOP Foundation Brush is one of them. They do much more than just look cute on your vanity! Guess what? Today is your lucky day! Thanks to Colours Cosmetic, each one of you will be able to enjoy 15% off, no matter how many times/pieces you or your friends or your mum or your aunty or your neighbour purchases. You can use my coupon code here.

GLAMGLOW Before and After REVIEW

Sep 22, 2014


20140921_111808

olla everyone!

This time around, I am back with a very popular product review. Non other than GLAMGLOW. I personally found that the name explain the product very specifically. If you love roaming around the internet to satisfy your lust over beauty products, then GLAMGLOW would be a very familiar name to you. This awesome product is currently raved by beauty bloggers, vloggers as well as celebrities..

Currently there are 5 different range offered by GLAMGLOW to cater all of your skin need and concern. Ranging from SUPERMUD™ CLEARING TREATMENT, YOUTHMUD™ TINGLEXFOLIATE, THIRSTYMUD™ HYDRATING TREATMENT, BRIGHTMUD™ EYE TREATMENT and their latest baby the POWERMUD™ DUALCLEANSE.

As for today, I am going to share with you about my experience using the YOUTHMUD™ TINGLEXFOLIATE and THIRSTYMUD™ HYDRATING TREATMENT. Before I start sharing about my experience, maybe I share more about the history of this award winning product. Yesss… check out how many awards this one of a kind mask received. Impressing huh?

  glamglow

 

GLAMGLOW® was founded in 2010 by Glenn & Shannon Dellimore. It all started when they are just chilling at home and one of their actor friends were sharing that he could not find a product that made his skin instantly camera ready, instantly reducing pores, instantly dealing with sun damage, instantly dealing with fine lines, instantly producing a noticeable glow that would last for days.

This became a topic of conversation with Glenn & Shannon Dellimore and the other three actors at the house. To cut the story shot, Glenn & Shannon Dellimore came out with this “magic mud” after doing lots of testing and formulation. Who know with the sincere intention to helping a friend the product became a hit and now almost all beauty lovers including celebrities who have access to almost all the products under the sun, swear by its effectiveness.

Great thanks to The Butterfly Project, Luxasia and Sephora Malaysia for giving me the opportunity to try out this product for review. I am over the moon and sun, as I am actually very interested to have a close encounter with this magic mud. Last month, I was invited to join the Product sharing session for Thirsty Mud at Sephora Sunway Piramid. Just incase you wanna check out about what happening during the event, you may do so by clicking the video footage that I did below.

It was such a fun and informative session, great thanks for extending the invite.

Method People Against Dirty

Sep 18, 2014

 

 

Olla everyone!

Sometime, I really wish that I have a super power that allow me to clean my house by snapping my finger.. Zap zap.. done.. Apart from that, I also secretly wish I have a nice voice like Snow White that I can just sing and suddenly rabbits and birds appears to help do my chores. Hahaha..

Now that I have a 4 months old baby with me, most of my time are occupied with her. Like my center of universe just switched. I don’t even have time to sleep let alone clean. Anyway, I would to share with you 4 new products that help me to “kaw tim” my house!

Check out my new “helper” in the house. Starting from the left, we have the Method Glass + Surface, Method All Purpose, Method AntiBac Toilet and the last one on the right is the Method Bathroom cleaner.

Great thanks to the new plant-based powergreen™ technology eliminates dirt, dust and pesky handprints – no streaks or chemical stank. This baby is a gem when it comes to clean windows. Streak free and best part of all it is AMMONIA FREE. Now that I have a baby I am trying to be extra careful to avoid having intense chemical stuff in my house. Baby is still new to the world, so just want her to have a strong immune system before expose to all the nasty stuff. With the powergreen™ technology, it will be the least of my concern.

Did I mention that this product leave an invigorating aroma of cool, crisp peppermint accented by a refreshing fusion of eucalyptus leaves and icy wild mint is a breath of fresh air.

Next we have this multi purpose cleaner! It does smell like cucumber mannnnnn…. I am like seriously? Cleaning household porducts that smell like cucumber? This is awesome! Its cleaners, derived from corn + coconut , break down dirt naturally, so every spray leaves nothing behind but a fresh scent + gleaming clean. Knock out dirt with the power of plants. Like all the other product carried by Method this is also very “green” friendly.

 

image

Then we have something to make our toilet bowl super clean minus all the toxic chemical. This stuff is great, amazed by the cleaning power! Instead of using harmful chemicals, Method incorporate citric acid, remember lemon? hehe.. All of the products carried by Method also packed into 100% recycled plastic bottle and were never tested on animals. So it is cruelty free as well Smile

 

image

A Non-Toxic Plant-Based Soap Scum Buster! I personally find cleaning more enjoyable when you don't have to hold your breath. Really one… sometime cannot tahan the chemical smell from cleaning product.. please tell me I am not the only one.

The plant-based formula dissolves soap scum + pesky stains, so you do less scrubbing.  Less scrubbing = more time for fun. Plus, this baby comes with eucalyptus mint smell.. Just refreshing and suits the bathroom.

There you go, I hope you found this blogpost helpful. To all the mummies or daddies out there, apa lagi? The range are affordable in my opinion. Considering all the chemical you get to eliminate from your house plus the effectiveness.

method all purpose cleaner 828ml rm 13.80

Antibacterial toilet bowl cleaner 709ml rm 18.80

Baby Spa at Giggling Jellyfish Baby Spa

Sep 15, 2014

image

Apparently, spa is not only for adult! Now we have baby spa in town to cater babies… yippie yeay! Yesterday, I got the chance to bring my beloved baby Sofea to experience her first spa treatment. Obviously, I am very excited! 

Baby spa is more than just a comforting experience, it is a groundbreaking developmental technique, which offers numerous physical and emotional benefits for neonates and young babies. Hydrotherapy (flotation and exercise in water) supports mental and physical development so essential to your baby’s ability to move with control, and act with purpose on land.The more your baby can use his/her brain and muscles, the stronger they will grow. At Baby Spa, your baby will find the freedom and space he/she needs to progress and, most importantly, have fun as they learn at their own pace.

Allow me to share my experience bring my baby to Giggling Jellyfish Baby Spa. This beautiful spa is located at A-3A-10 Ativo Plaza, Jalan PJU 9/1 Persiaran Perdana, Bandar Sri Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This shop operate daily from 10am till 7pm. Before I share about my baby’s spa session, I would like to give you a round tour of the spa!

 

baby spa malaysia price

Check out this beautiful pool. I was informed that this baby spa is available to be enjoyed by babies up to 3 years old toddler. It is also nice to know that the water are change daily to maintain cleanliness. The therapist assigned to baby Sofea on that day is Muna. She explained that the water temperature is controlled to be luke warm just nice for baby’s body temperature. I like how they input cute floats as well as colourful balls to aid baby’s stimulation process.

image

This is the private room in Giggling Jellyfish baby spa. Beautiful right? One the special feature of this room, apart from the privacy it offer is that parents able to jump in and join the fun during baby spa session. It is also good for muslim mummies who want to have some intimate moment with her baby. The lighting and the sound in the room is just sooooo pleasing to the soul.  In the room, there is also a relaxing chair if you decide to take a quick break in between..before continuing your session.

 

image

Guess what area is this? This is the “lepak area”. hahaha… pandai2 only I simply bagi nama. Anyway, at this area you can use it to watch tv or just hang out while waiting for your baby while she/he is enjoying their session.

This cosy section section over here is the breastfeeding section. I like how they cater this as it makes breastfeeding mum live wayyy easier. Speaking from experience, Sofea is a small eater. She drinks for a short period and tend to get hungry fast plus also thanks to the structure of breastmilk which are way easier to digest. This room makes my personal experience better since I can just go to this room to full fill my baby’s “susu time” need. There you go, hope you get the overview of the shop’s layout.

This is Muna. She is the lady I mentioned earlier. She helps to take care of Sofea during the whole session.Stages of the spa for a baby not much different from the spa for adults, but everything are given to the portions and functions tailored to the needs of the baby. Baby Spa is also important to detect early abnormalities of the body because the baby cannot complain to his parents when the body feels pain or sprain. By doing a spa, the baby's body will be "improved" sense of relaxation as well as a convenient and good for the development of his soul. Generally, a spa for the infant consists of swimming, bathing, and massage.

Before the treatment started, baby’s temperature will be taken as per above picture. This is to ensure baby is not having fever. Babies who are having cold or cough also will not be encourage to proceed with baby spa. Please make sure that your baby is in healthy condition before you bring them to enjoy a spa treatment. I like how this baby spa use this type of device to capture baby’s temperature. I personally think that it is more hygienic compare to those other devices where you need to put under baby’s tongue and armpit.

image

Right after Sofea’s temperature is taken, Muna hold her and bring her around to make her comfortable with the new atmosphere while allowing some time for bonding. Then, after few minutes she took her to the exercise area to warm up baby’s body. 

Check out Sofea’s picture below. She is giggling all the way during the exercise and warm up session.

image

Once done, Muna help to change Sofea’s diaper to the swimming diaper and dont worry about the sizes as it is adjustable on the side. I bring a green coloured baby’s swimwear and decide to bring it to baby spa as well. If you do have a baby’s swimwear you can bring it as well Smile  Then again it is non compulsory to do so.

When swimming, a baby will be trained motor movements due to foot and his body will be twitching, but will also prevent respiratory distress. While in the bath, the baby will do relaxation as most kids today have higher stress levels. Remember, when your baby is swimming or bathing, water used should not be too hot as it can make the peripheral blood vessels dilated which reduce blood flow to the heart.

Each of the five senses is a doorway to your baby’s mind. Your baby can hear your voice, feel your touch, smell your scent, and taste anything you put in his mouth. While baby’s vision may be one of the least developed senses at birth, visual input during the early months may have the most profound effect on baby’s developing nervous system. What exactly does this mean? Why is visual stimulation so important for a baby? How can you as a parent or caregiver best stimulate your newborn’s visual senses?

At birth, the nerve cells in baby’s brain are disorganized and not well connected. While baby grows, the brain receives input from all five senses. This input causes nerve cells to multiply and form a multitude of connections with other nerve cells. This is why visual stimulation is so crucial. For example, if a baby is kept blindfolded the visual center in his brain would never develop, the optic nerve would shrivel up, and baby would never develop vision. On the other hand, if you provide continuous visual input into baby’s eyes, the retina thrives, the optic nerve grows, and the visual part of baby’s brain thrives and develops by leaps and bounds.

Infant-development experts believe that the first years of a child's life are a prime time for learning, but sometimes it may be hard to think of new ways to stimulate your baby. Which is why bay spa session is great for your baby. It helps to trigger all his/her senses and will help to make your baby smarter!

While infant massage on relaxation in addition to providing benefits will also help improve digestion and facilitate blood circulation to the baby. Generally, the baby often experience digestive problems when breastfeeding. With this massage, digestive problems called colic or bloating because the colon will be resolved will work as well as digestion.

As for how much it cost, check out below. anyway currently they are having opening promotion, where when you buy 1 (swim + massage) you get free 2 more session. I found it super worth it.
