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!
