Hey,

I've tried this one peeling gel from another Korean beauty brand called Onsaemeein, got it from Althea like few weeks back but I only have time to complete this post now. I think I have enough posts on this blog that talked about Althea, the holy website that sells K-beauty products you ever need from head to toe with a bargain prices. Like few months back, they have launched their app on google playstore too to make your purchase more convenient and easier. If you're following me on Instagram I guess you've seen my shout out post for that in the while back.

Plus to some people who have no idea what to buy, you can have Althea's Beauty Boxes too where they include your products of preference with their highly variable boxes ranging from as low as RM90 that comes with around 5-6 products inside, now talk about mega bargain lol. Alright time to read about what I like about this peeling gel here. Most peeling gels does not come as affordable and it's really important to have one peeling gel at home girls, trust me it makes a lot of difference to your skin. Now keep on reading.


First of all I like how it was packaged. Look at it, doesn't it looks like a real yogurt. If you have small kids don't put this around or they might grab it thinking this is a food lol
The scent is very inviting and delectable too. As you can see it comes with a small spoon for scooping too, really handy.

Open up, and this is how it looks like inside. A jar full of yogurt peeling gel, the gel is translucent white in the form, half solid (not runny at all), does not have any beads and again I really lost to its scent lol!

The chronology of how this peeling gel works.

From right : 

  1. I scooped out a fair amount of the peeling gel onto the back of my hand. 
  2. Rub it until the gel gradually evolves to watery consistency and then there will be tiny white lumps appeared as you keep rubbing gently (those convinced to be dead skins which was peeled off during the rubbing with the aid of active ingredients from this gel)
  3. A clean rinsed off skin of the back of my hand after the peeling. I can honestly say it felt so good, like a new skin has just reborn lol (mind not a little bit flush, my skin easily turn red whenever I did peeling, that's really normal)

I am an avid user of peeling gels, I normally use my peeling gel from Cure, it's Natural Aqua Peeling Gel that comes in tall bottle with pump (you can find this in Sasa). Using a peeling gel at least twice a week is really encouraged as it can removes your dead skin and assist a lot in your skin renewal, this prevents you from having a dry, flaky and premature aging skin. 

This yogurt peeling gel contains Microcrystalline cellulose as an anti-caking and scrub agent, Goat milk extract to moisturize and condition the skin, Chamaecyparis obtusa leaf extract to improve the skin tone and protect the skin, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root extract which works as natural preservative, Papaya extract as another safe peeling agent that condition the skin at the same time and Yogurt extract to enhance the elasticity of the skin.

The difference of this peeling gel with the one from Cure brand (Japanese) is this works a lot more faster than the latter, as Cure's needs the gel to settle on the skin for a while until it evolves to water and only then you can start rubbing. For this Onsaemeein Yogurt Peeling Gel, you can just slap it on and start rubbing and the visible dead skin will comes off immediately, it's very time saving. I still like the one from Cure because they are super gentle but this Yogurt Peeling Gel is the second fave of mine too, especially if I'm lack of time to wait. 

It's gentle enough too even for the dry skin type like mine. I have like 2 bottles of Cure's Natural Aqua Peeling Gels at the moment, and this one so that's make it 3. If you ask me will I buy it again, of course I will because the price is really affordable compared to Cure's, drop your jaw now coz it's only less than RM30!! Here where you can buy it. If you're travelling this is travel-wise to bring around as the size is fairly compact. 

If you have some free time let's take your time scrolling down through Althea's website, the prices are huge deals, even if you're a student it won't bites you too much as most of the beauty products there are drop dead affordable and there's an array of them you can choose from, everything you need from head to toe is a one stop to find there!



Talk to you guys again on my next post!

Hey,

I hope all of you are doing just well. Around 2 weeks ago Neutrogena sent me this box containing of 3 products from them to try out. I have always been an old school in skin regime, I don't normally walk out from my regular skin care brands I'm using which means I stick to one or two products I am comfortable with for years without the second thought of moving on if I find that they're really reliable to depend on like Hada Labo, B.liv and Kose, mostly Japanese and Asian brands.

From Left : Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser | Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam | Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub

As I have a dry skin (sometimes can be really dry that it sucks) Neutrogena has let me try out the hydrating line including both the foaming cleanser and makeup remover&cleanser, as well as the daily scrub for blackhead as I tend to experience a clogged pores too because I am an avid makeup user, I will at least use one or two drops of foundation on daily basis even if I'm feeling like not wearing the other makeup on.

A little bit on the brand itself, Neutrogena is among the top dermatologist recommended skincare brands, always makes a difference because Neutrogena uniquely combines proven science with the expertise and insights gained from consumers, dermatologists, and skin experts, to create effective, yet gentle products. Neutrogena is known for its wide array of skin health-focused products starting from cleansers, hydration serum and masks to sun protection lotions.

Neutrogena is an American brands, that is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. According to product advertising at their website, Neutrogena products are distributed in more than 70 countries. Neutrogena was founded in 1930 by Emanuel Stolaroff, and was originally a cosmetics company named Natone. It is now part of the United States-based Johnson & Johnson conglomerate, which bought the independent company in 1994.


The march of 2017 kicked off with this worldwide premium skincare brand announced the Academy Award-winning actress, activist for women’s cancer research and Goodwill Ambassador of UN Women, Nicole Kidman as its latest Global Brand Ambassador.

According to Cory Price, General Manager of Neutrogena at Johnson & Johnson US, “Nicole embodies the true spirit of the women that we are committed to everyday. Their passion, strength and focus are what makes Neutrogena women so special. Nicole will help us encourage women to embrace their beauty through the lens of skin health and empower women to see what’s possible with Neutrogena”.

In Malaysia, Neutrogena Deep Clean offers a wide range of cleansers and make up removers that addresses different skin concerns.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam (RM44.90, 142mL)

First and foremost, no skin care routine is approved without started by the makeup removal first. Neutrogena knows what the women's skins need. I am convinced that even if you cleanses your face thoroughly however without the makeup being removed first it is futile. I've stopped using my conventional cleansers and skin care products in order to test the eficacy of these Neutrogena products.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Cleansing Oil To Foam takes form in a lightweight gel, not really oil like the name and once you slather it on your full face makeup, as you rub it on it turns into a whitish gel with a sticky consistency. That's how you use it, then gradually add a little bit of water as you rub it all over the face and it will take form into a relatively massive foam based on the amount you used.  From the picture above, the transparent bottle clearly gives you the idea of how the gel looks like once you pump it on your palm. It is crystal clear and very lightweight, not heavily scented and I really feel comfortable to use this to cleanse my makeup off.

The only downside is it's not that potent enough to strip off your makeup 100%-ly, I found that there were still a little bit of the residues of eye makeup left (eye makeup can be quite stubborn tho). I like the packaging very much, the transparent bottle allows me to see how much amount is left inside with the short nozzle build which is really convenient. However if you're going to bring this in your luggage for travel, I suggest that you wash the nozzle's mouth under a running water first every time after pumping out the gel and tap the the excess water off as the diluted excess gel from the nozzle's mouth (caused by the water) might drip downwards leaving an uncomfortable feelings when you touch the bottle, slippery, soapy and what not. Overall, I mark this product to be really helpful to me and I like it very much.

 Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser (RM18.70, 100g )

Frankly speak, I began to feel really comfortable and compatible with this foaming cleanser, lightly scented as well as the ability to create a massive bouncy foam without stripping away the moisture that could transform my skin into an anhydrous desert. I like anything that creates an abundant foam and bubbles, it suggests me the thought that it cleanses better than the least bubbles could. Pale green in color, lighter than the color of Shrek (???), this cream foaming cleanser comes in a tube packaging. The cap is very tight, what a relief coz you can definitely bring this along in your backpack without the traces of leaking from the tube. 

 Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub  (RM23.70, 100g)

Comes in a yellowish iridescent color with a golden beads and tiny granules.

I don't dislike this blackhead daily scrub, just that I don't think it helps much with my problem, if you live in a country with winter I don't think this is suitable for you either if you have a dry skin, Using it like once a week is fine, it is good just that it does not cope that much with my clogged pores problem which can be horrendous at times based on the weather and my daily activities (especially on my forehead and T-zone area). This blackhead scrub doubles as a cleanser too, lather it up with water and gently rub the bubbles across your face to cleanse, with the beads mixed together it helps to brush away the blackheads and dirts which outstand on your skin surface, as well as the dead skin cells. This is still a good product for people with oily and acne prone skin. Overall, my best companions of the past weeks are the hydrating foaming cleanser and the hydrating oil to foam cleanser, they're definitely my faves and I am very contented of the result it gave to my skin.



I am an average girl who hates to take selfies most of the time (welp) but I am very satisfied with how my skin turned out after using them consistently so here you go one of my aesthetic shots under the bliss of sun to show you my new improved skin, almost naked from all them heavy foundations. If you wonder what might work the best for your skin, why wait, give 'em a go now and see what a miraculous things they can do to your skin just like mine. //winks

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!
