Perfect hair with Aki Hair Studio

I have been going to Aki Hair Studio for the past 3 years. Their  service along with their styling is nothing short of perfect. One of the main problems is that I myself don't spend the time to do treatments and maintenance. Can you imagine that my Japanese stylist - Eiji San has to remind me to come? And finally I did to basically do everything to my hair! As my hair had blacks growing half out already, a colour was needed but I wanted to go lighter without bleaching as my hair was too dry. A hair treatment was then done using natural ingredients from Viege Meticulous handling by Daphne I love the smell of the treatment consisting of vegetables and fruits Japanese green tea...

Yehwadam White Ginseng Collagen Pearl Capsule Cream

Yehwadam White Ginseng Collagen Pearl capsule cream from The Face Shop is a cream I say that has pearls in it! From the packaging towards the usage, you will love the entire experience. It came in this beautiful box Just look at that packaging, it gives the luxurious feel doesn't it? A closer look from the packaging to the pearls inside From the beauty of the outside to the experience of using it. My excited face opening it I always like creams that don't feel like creams, and this is exactly it! Smooth and non-stick texture. You may scoop up a pearl and squeeze it with the spoon or even mix it with your foundation Then dab it onto key areas of your face. As it's meant for dry...

Review: Mederma PM Overnight cream to reduce scarring

Some of you may have noticed because you have messaged me on this before, I have a scarring problem. My surgical wounds became keloids ! I was searching high and low for a scar removal cream but none worked. Mederma was recommended to me after my first surgery by my surgeon when hypertropic scars started forming. It's usually recommended to reduce the appearance of scars resulting from surgery(like me), injury, burns, and even acne to make them softer, smoother, and less noticeable. The ones I've tried before didn't work though possibly because I wasn't consistent enough. And then I found the first overnight cream to reduce scarring by Mederma and have decided to write a review on it for others who have...

Nutrition for my skin – Oskia London by Caliata Beauty

Our skin which is the largest organ in our body is just like any part of our body. It needs TLC which means it needs nutrients, vitamins, and supplements to restore and renew cells. Oskia London which is a bio-active nutritional skincare is now in Malaysia! Caliata is a beauty website that sources nature-inspired, effective skincare from Europe and USA cult brands and brings it here to Malaysia!! Yay! That's how I found out about Oskia London and how they manage to restore glowing skin through bio-active nutrients. I am constantly afraid to put European products on my skin because I feel it doesn't suit Asian skin, but it wasn't the case with brands from Caliata. Since trying Oskia London out starting from it's...

Natural Products for your hair and scalp – Viege at Aki Hair Studio

Do you experience oily scalp as you grow older or is it due to the Malaysian heat? When I was staying in the hospital for 18 days during my surgeries, I started having oily hair and scalp. Since then, I've been trying to solve it and  found a solution recently. To my delight, it was made of all types of vegetables and natural. Contrary to what we believe, oily scalp actually produces dandruff for us which is what I experienced. I would be really embarrassed because at that point of time, not only was I super thin due to the colostomy bag, but my hair was flaking!! You guys would know that I head to Aki Hair studio when it comes...

Do your bit for charity – The Therapy First Serum by The Face Shop

The Face Shop has just relaunched their Therapy First Serum which is pretty much a miraculous product! Not only have they relaunched it, but with a good cause attached to it. You can be a beauty and support on a cause on top of that too *wink* . I'm all onboard this because the aim for the cause is to raise cancer awareness as any purchase of the bottle of The Therapy First Serum (RM148.29), RM15 will be donated to a cancer organization AND you get another The Therapy First Serum! What this means is that it's Buy ONE, get the 2nd one FREE, you will get a pouch(pic below), and part of the proceeds(RM15) goes to support a cancer...

Quality gel nails at Yu Academie Salon

When it comes to doing my nails, I've never wanted gel nails after ONE bad experience with it which caused my nails to be brittle. However, after meeting Yuki-san from Yu Aacademie salon, my perceptio on gel nails has changed. I am more than happy to do gel nails on both my hands and feet because of the Japanese technology to remove and apply it so it doesn't hurt your nails. Once you walk into their premises, you will feel like you are definitely in  Japanese nail salon because everything is so pretty! We were greeted with pretty cupcakes and mochis flown in from Japan While you are doing your nails there, you can also enjoy the beverages available such as green tea...

Improving our skin through traditional herbs – Yehwadam

Happy Chinese New Year to all celebrating! Hope all of you had a good break and tons of festive celebration and food. As for me, I have been stuffing myself silly, and giving out the red packets ( ang pow) for the first time in my life as I am a newlywed :) During this time, I have also been experimenting a little with my some traditional beauty products which consists of three main ingredients - herbs, plants, and flowers (Yewahdam). I've always wondered how the Korean women have such smooth and fair skin, and even started applying masks three times a week which did improve my skin tone and texture. However, I am STILL trying to achieve that dewy, vibrant...

Christian Dior make-over

Well, I wouldn't call it a total make-over, but it my face did look different that I drew tons of stares on a Monday afternoon at Mid Valley!!!! One of the things that I am afraid of trying is skincare, and beauty products as I have sensitive skin. That's why I am a stickler for the same brand when it comes to cosmetics, especially my foundation and concealer. I was recently invite to do a make-over by a regional make-up maestro of Christian Dior, and try their products. Although I was hesitant, I loved the brand from their couture, to their lip glosses. I kept thinking, how bad could it be? Perhaps I break out for 1 week at most?!?! And guess...
