Hello again strawberry crepes!

I believe that we're too familiar with Neutrogena brand, there's always ads on youtube, your tv and pretty sure you've seen them too in most Malaysia's drugstores. Have been hearing about how good their oil-free acne wash too, I just never tried this brand given my skin type appear to be an antonym to the acne prone skin, rather a lil bit dry.

So few weeks ago I was sent this to try out, been using this for weeks and know what. I LOVE IT. It's so different for me to love any deep cleansers, coz I always thought it might make my skin drier than it already is, as it is told to be a deep cleanser it will cleanse away everything even the moisture away and so I never give a second thought to even try. This is a shame, I should've just tried this before!

Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleanser is a facial cleanser that works thoroughly to
remove dirt, oil and dead skin cells while providing long lasting oil control and improving the appearance of your skin.

As how most of the cleanser looks like, it comes in a tube like this with a flip open cap. it's tight when you close it so you don't have to worry to bring this in your bag whenever travelling as it won't oozing out. Just squeeze a small amount on your palm and lather it up with water to use it. Now some tips to cleanse your face, many people who often have breakouts never realized it that most of them were not even born with an acne prone nor oily skin, it has something to do with the right way to cleanse your face.

A proper way of cleansing is you need to lather it up on your palms with water first to create a rich foam as it removes skin impurities that can build up in pores such as excess oil, dirt and makeup effortlessly. The richer the foam the better.

Tiny amount of this cleanser makes an abundant rich and creamy foam and it feels good after you rinse it off, the skin feels squeaky clean but not dry. 

The dermatologist-tested formula is clinically proven with oil control formula that helps in reducing the surface oil while retaining the natural moisture your skin have to keep your skin looking clear, fresh and healthy. The cleanser comes in a white color, semi-thick, and it has a mild fragrance which is good for a person with sensitive nose like me, I can't help myself to sneeze every time I use something too fragrancy. Something I notice too, the cleanser actually have a tiny beads, this is great to help with removing dead surface skin that can dry, roughen and dull your complexion without being too abrasive. I actually find this to be a multi-cleanser for all the jobs it can do. 

For the record, I have a dry skin and even so this cleanser still works just fine, it does not rip away all the moisture, and it fact every time after I wipe off my makeup, cleansing the residue of them using this cleanser makes my skin feels free of greasiness and yet I can still smile without looking like an old granny with a taut feeling skin. Speculatively, it's still not a good idea to use this in winters unless you really have an oil refinery like skin LOL.

I am not sure about others but I seldom use toner, not to mention after the use of this cleanser, I don't think I need a toner coz it makes my skin feels matte already. In the nutshell, I really love it for the negligible fragrance, long lasting coz you only need a small quantity to create enough lather to remove external impurities to the pores (non-comedogenic), and it controls the shine. One thing I do not like about it is I probably won't bring it if I were to travel in winters. I prefer to use my favourite Hada Labo if it feels to dry for me to use it because Hada Labo is very moisturising, just that it's not really efficient against makeup removing like Neutrogena.

Ingedients : Water, Sodium C14 16 Olefin Sulfonate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium C12 15 Pareth 15 Sulfonate, Salicylic Acid, Linoleamidopropyl PG Dimonium Chloride Phosphate, Disodium EDTA, Propylene Glycol, FD&C Yellow 5, FD&C Red 40, Fragrance

Would I buy this again? HELLA YES coz this is still a great cleanser to double cleanse my face on the super heavy makeup day! You can find this on both Guardian and Watsons and other drugstores or shopping malls in Malaysia like Aeon, Giant and etc. If you're looking for the brand which specilized in deep cleansing and acne this is one of the good brand out there. The price of this cleanser is only RM10.20 (NP) affordable no? xD

Hello melon buns! 

Miss me yet? heee I know I haven't been on blog for sooo long but ok staph. Today I got an interesting discovery for you guys who loves lip products. Tired of getting your lipstick stain on cups and shirts? The shade won't stay all day long and faded after having meals? Worry not, here comes the product that might make a lil bit of change to your lipstick life forever and be a lil saviour! (Lol Pinku's typical Malaysian way of attempting to go advertise) Ok leave all jokes behind, girls guys let's be serious.

On top of all, thank you sooo much to Kosé for thinking about me and sent me this Lip Gel Magic to let me try it! I instantly fell in love for its cute and chibi (means tiny in Japanese) packaging! It's simple but sleek and it makes it easy for a girl who loves makeup like me to carry it around in a handbag and makeup pouch. Speaking of woes of wearing lipsticks, many will agree if I say 95% of your lipsticks often budge as the day progresses or by a few hours of wearing and they have a propensity to leave a mark on your belongings, and I just hate the fact that sometimes my hair or hijab would flow and touch my lips and when I'm trying to pull them away from my face the lipstick stain (the non-matte ones) will be dragged across my face, ugh that's just doesn't look so cool okay.

Comes in a tube like this, it helps with the application as it only allows you to press only a small amount from it. Careful tho, this scentless liquid gel is rather runny or you'll have to mourn on the wasted product rofl!

Not to mention Kosé did sent me this to try too, Esprique in OR 292 and I swear to universe the shade is fudging pretty and the packaging is very elegant and classy!
Orange or red hues really suit me the best in the terms of lipsticks or lip colors.

Trying out the color on my lips, I added a lil bit of shimmering pigments, the shade is absolutely gorgeous!

As you may expected from most of the beauty bloggers like myself that like an honest review, no reviews will be done without a prior experiment so I tested this on the back of my hand, one with Kosé Lip Gel Magic coat and one without.

Experiment : 

From right :

  1. One swipe of Esprique lipcolor in OR 292 with a drop of Kosé Lip Gel Magic coat and one without. 
  2. One lipcolor is covered with Kosé Lip Gel Magic and one without
  3. I tried to drag the stain to see how much it would stay on both. The one with the Kosé Lip Gel Magic coat shows only a lil budge while the one without, budging like mad.

Lip Gel Magic is Kosé's most powerful lipstick coating gel, and it is told that with just one single swipe this maximum-strength lipstick top coat gel protects the lip color from fading even after drinking, eating and even - gasp! - snog...ging? LOL I'm just joking //slapped. This semi-opaque, fragrance-free translucid gel works with any of your favorite stick-typed lipsticks. As it locks the color of the lipstick it also makes it last longer. The moisturisation it provides enable your pout to look healthy and stay perfectly defined all day long.

Verdict :

It's true that it holds the color of your lipstick, however when I applied it on the lips, I would say it won't give you a 100% transfer-proof effect. It does helps with 60% from getting it smudged. It does extends the life of your lipstick shade as it is becoming less smudgy, but it's still can be transferred to your mug and shirt. I still do like it coz it feels very moisturized when I put it on, besides prolonging your lipcolor's shades.

You can find this from Kosé's beauty counters Malaysia-wide and they are only priced at around RM55 each. For more info you can kindly visit them here :

I hope this post is useful for you guys. Not to forget thank you Kosé once again for the thoughtful gift! The vintage-ish evening tea set is very beautiful!

Sore ja!

Hey my buttermilk scones! 

Did you guys went to that Klang Parade Cosplay Party 2016? if you did how was it? Honestly I enjoyed the whole event a lot coz this was my first time watching a cosplay competition this close and live, I really admired those cosplayer's efforts, creativity and courage to stand on the stage and feed our Sunday at Klang Parade with their best shows!

Technically, Cosplay Party 2016 was compiled together with A Frozen Wonderland, held at the LG floor of Klang Parade and happened for 2 days, I only came on the second day which was the last day for the event, on Sunday.

Event: A Frozen Wonderland + Cosplay Party 2016
Date: 4 December 2016
Time: 11:00am

Pretty judges, Reina, Suannie and Venus doing their works.
Even from a side view they still looked amazing, oh *swoon~

Before coming up with their skits and performances, the 27 participants were called out one by one to walk on the stage first for the character portrayal and that is necessary for the winner's criteria. I was too enjoying their walks and shows so I did't get to capture more pictures but these are some that I managed to take, and sorry if some of them are blurry, too bright or too dimmed. It was because of the ever changing lighting of the stage area (wonderland~ LOL)

 I really like the way he portrayed his cosplay character, so fierce!

 I'm uncertain of her character but I heard they called her "Facebook girl" lol

 Kaori from Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso! 

 Kaito Senbonzakura

 Chun Li from Street Fighter

 I'm not a fan of Pokemon but this Moon was so energetic 
and she herself looked really identical to the series' character!

 Mermaid Melody! She looked shooo cute and her voice too!

 Deadpool lol! He was so hilarious, as expected from Deadpool!

 This one was Kamen Rider

 Hahahaha, Kougoro Mouri, I seriously can't stand his Kougoro's laugh, sounded legit I kid not LOL
He did so well too for the character! Congrats for winning the first place!

 She's my buddy, did so well eventho this was her first time!
Good job Ayame sama!

 I really like this guy, Jinyi. Throw him both female or male character, 
he can pull them off well still no matter what! His enthusiasm is something to be inspired!

 Aya...I love her elaborated costume!

 France from Hetalia!

 I don't really watch Fairy Tail, but she's definitely one brave and daring girl. This is Uru from Fairy Tail!

Kiritoooo~ and the cosplayer is kind and nice too. He's my friend Andy lol 

Lol Franky from One Piece (MY FAVE SERIES), no nipple lights from Franky but he's still awesome haha

Some participants performing on stage, some did singing, some did dancing and also skit. 
Regardless, they were all so creative and energetic!

Most of the cosplayers who joined the competition and performed are my friends and I was really looking forward and happy to see them on the stage, they looked so energetic and so into it. I burst out loud too at the skit by Aizaki (Kougoro Mouri), that was definitely the most interesting and amusing performance and no wonder he won the first place. Following are the winners for Klang Parade Cosplay Party 2016 and congrats to everyone!

This is the first large scale Christmas event at Klang Parade, with a chosen theme of Frozen Wonderland this year in hopes of evoking a fairy-tale-esque setting. This is also the first time Klang Parade brought in a sliding rink into the mall for the chlidren, and expecting it to be a real hit with them since this is a completely new attraction brought into the mall. Meanwhile, Cosplay Party was brought back due to popular demand. The previous cosplay party attracted a large volume of participants donned in fantastic costumes and it brought happiness to people who visited the mall too, taking photos around with the awesome and friendly cosplayers.

As Christmas is a time of giving, some very special guests were invited with the good intention for the community in the morning prior to Cosplay Party :

Ms. Yap Su-Yin, CEO of Tan Chin Tuan Foundation
Dato Richard Ong, Council Member of Tan Sri Tan Foundation
June Lim, Malaysian Country Head for ARA Asset Management Limited
Mr Yazman Yuhana, Communications & Fundraising Manager from Yayasan Chow Kit
Madam Julia from The Pure Life Society

They gave some speeches before handing a donation of a big amount to both Yayasan Chow Kit and Pure Life Society. These communities are here for the kids and orphans who are in need. Yayasan Chow Kit and The Pure Life Society are both recipients of a RM10,000 donation by the Tan Sri Tan Foundation, who is working closely with ARA Asset Management Limited (the owners of this mall) to spread more Christmas cheer to those in need.

On the other hand, I met some new friends too! xD

 With my youthful blogger fellows, (from left) May, Jacqueline, and Wendy. Nice meeting you guys and I did't know May is a cosplayer too LOL, see you later on CF again May! ^^

We missed each other countless times on cons haha and finally I met her last Sunday! 

  Happiest guy of the day LOL, coz he got to see his Nozomi after hunting for LL cosplayers since he arrived. Unfortunately I've stopped my LL cosplay. He's also a blogger and a youtuber.
Check out his YT channel here if you like! ^^

Thanks for keeping my stuff lol, and thanks for the Zen bookmark!

>////< Reina! I started to like her after I saw her Freyja cosplay from ALO (SAO)!
And she looked exactly like her cosplay photos! - I'm a shit next to her lol (mind not the photobomber behind)

Thank you so much for inviting me as part of the media, despite of having some pressure of my current final weeks of my studies (coz it's almost the end of my semester so it's normal), I got to enjoy a lil bit and my last Sunday was definitely a productive one (LOL).

Hello lil fairies!

My fave shopping site called Althea is finally 1 y/o! It feels just about yesterday they were here! An array of Korean brands on the website is expanding larger too compared to the first day they raised their curtains up! Ok I smell an overly burned pocket suddenly lol

Althea is originated from South Korea and firstly launched in Malaysia on the last year, followed by the others southeast asia countries like Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia.

Last month, Althea threw an awesome birthday party celebrating their 1st anniversary ever! I'm so glad that I was invited along to their happening birthday party held at RUANG, Subang. Let's look what they got on their very first birthday event!

Saengil Chukahamnida Althea!

The beauties that welcomed us at the registration counter.

Althea birthday cake in the middle of pinkish ambience! 

If you've always thought that beauty products looks delectable, now is the right time where you can eat them LOL (They were made out of icing sugars)

Althea turns 1 and counting! 

Die high sugar level me!
The cookies were soo cute, a bit sayang to dig in lol

The bingsu bar, the taste was not bad and it cooled down the body especially in this humid weather.

4 variants of Kimbap and they satisfied the lil tummy! 

The environment of the birthday event of Althea outside the activity hall. 

This was my first time trying out a soda drink with cotton candy, it tasted so good and sweet, the fizzing sound they made when I threw the cotton candy in was somehow addictive haha

Arisa senpaiii OMG finally met her in real life! I love to read her blog for the trendy Japanese-related stuff and I always follow her cosplay updates be it on her new costume or etc. She is one of my inspirations besides Tammy and the rest.

Am sure she is much more older than me but she looks young as always! Would love to learn about her secret lol
Was nice meeting you again Carol!

Is there any lipsticks this big exist in this world? I might interested to purchase LOL

Dee OMG it has been so long! Glad to know you are doing all well, and he always rocks the diva look! 

I spent the whole day talking to this lovely girl, Nicole. Looking forward to see you again on the future events!

It's time to cut the cake, by Frank Kang, our cutest Althea CEO in the house! Oh and he sang us a song, I didn't know he can actually sing! I posted a video on my IG so if you'd like to see what's going on the event in a brief just check out my IG okayy

Caught this moment when the humble Frank kindly handed Althea balloon to one of the fellow bloggers for the balloon popping session for the lucky draw! He said there's something in the balloon prepared for us! 

Ready to see what's inside? Ok POP!

Lordd, I got a free It's My Cushion Set cushion case! and It's in the pink color (forgot to take a photo of it and I left it in Trg already, my bad) Thanks for the lil surprise Frank! Thanks for all the lucky draw sponsors too, It's My, WondeRuci and Aromatica for all the surprises!

I don't mind to die and getting buried in this box full of cosmetics haha!

Kamsahamnida for everything Frank! What a very down to earth and friendly CEO he is! Glad to have met with you again!  

My big biig biiiiigest inspiration on this journey, thank you so much for always being so inspiring and helpful to the noob me Tammy!

Kak Naniii, looked amazing and bubbly as always!

I got a print of the wefie in the Althea box full of cosmetics from Glitz & Glam Studio Booth! Will keep this as one of the sweet memories in 2016 of my life. Let us all get buried in this box lol 

If nobody noticed me I think I've already ran away with the cake LOL
The cake was so pretty, I swear!

The party was soooo adorable, everything and everyone were wrapped in pink color!
I met the other blogger friends, Kak Ella, Juneci, Reiko, Mira, Anis, Sydney, Lee yan, and etc as well alas I truly forgot to have a selfies with them lol anyway it was nice to see them around after such a long time!

Everyone invited were given a special 150 pts to shop on Althea website too, that was the biggest sursprise of the whole event!! I got mine as well, why oh why Althea just can't stop from engraving smiles on beauty lover's faces!

Thanks for the special invite Althea, It was fun spending half of my day with Althea and the bloggers. For you guys who loves indulging yourselves in Korean cosmetics and beauty products, don't miss out shopping on Althea Malaysia. For Singaporean, Indonesian and Filipinos, they have a specially designed website just for you so do check this fave Korean beauty shopping site of mine out!
