Skincare Review: Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

This will be a short review as it's basically a first impression of a brand that I recently got to try, Soap and Glory. Nisa and Angela has been raving about this in one of our chat session and since I was in KK Imago Sephora and found a travel-size of this item near a cashier for I think RM33? It's a bit expensive for a travel-sized body scrub but I was there for a shopping spree, why the heck not.

Sorry for the blurred shot, I didn't realize it because I was batch editing it and when I found out, I already put the scrub in the bathroom.

This stuff contains shea butter, peach seed and sea salt which is good for your skin. It tastes salty and soapy so don't try to eat it! LOL, yes I did taste it, but that will be the first and last time, only because it smells amazing, I wish there's a perfume version of this scent.

When I scrub, I usually like to scrub my whole body, I scrub once a week, with this 50ml, I manage to use up 1/2 of the product for my whole body and kinda sad about it as I don't have an easy access to repurchase this, but I really love how abrasive it is. some says it's too gentle but I find it abrasive and the sea salt really help scrubs off any dead skin that might reside, leaving behind not a raw, scrubbed-off skin but a very moisturized and soft supple skin, I think with the help of shea butter.

Will I repurchase? Yes but only for a once in a while thing, because this stuff is expensive and I usually buy the Indonesian brands that costs me less than $5

Beauty Buys: Memories for KK Raya Trip

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I went and had a holiday trip to KK a few weeks back, on the first day of Raya if I want to be more precise, we went there for 9 days just to get away from the Raya Aidilfitri celebration. I know it's weird but it is kinda refreshing tho not celebrating Raya and just have a relaxing shopping holiday. At first, the plan was to go to KL and Singapore, but due to some complications, we went to KK instead.

I spent a lot on shopping for makeups and apparels, I'm not posting my haul on the apparels I bought cuz let's face it, I'm too lazy to post about fashion, lol! So anyways, I went to Sephora, Bath & Body Works and Daiso for this haul.

Don't get me started on Daiso, I am pretty much in love with Daiso ever since I step foot into it, I bought a lot of stuffs there and am only posting the beauty-related stuff that I bought, I went there almost everyday of my trip!

Daiso Focus Gel Eyeliner in Lame Black- I think this is the only makeup item I bought for this haul, I'm still doing trials on this product so keep a lookout on the review.

Daiso Cleansing Water - I haven't try out that much micellar water yet, due to the lack of resources, why Brunei, why. However, I'm just going to give this a mini review since I know I won't be able to round up an in-depth review of some of the products that I hauled. So, I think you can pass cleansing water, you won't be missing out on anything, it's not that impressive, it does remove 70% of your makeup but it doesn't effectively remove waterproof mascaras. Also, I expect cleansing water to have no alcohol ingredient whatsoever, but this does and somehow it broke me out, ggrr. So now am using this to remove all my hand swatches and makeup residues from my hands whenever I apply makeup.

Daiso Detergent for Puff and Sponge - Nisa introduced me to this detergent and I'm glad that I bought this and I'm disappointed in myself of not buying a few more of this, cuz this is such an awesome brush and sponge cleaner, I usually clean my brushes with shampoos but I always never seem to be able to remove the brown stains by foundations from the brush and when I used this, AWESOME! I'd definitely will ask my friend to buy this for me!

Daiso Hand Cream in Rose -  I love rose scents and I forgot to bring my hand cream along, so this somehow is a nice and cheap thing to try, I think it's more moisturizing than my GVC hand cream! Also, it smells AWESOME!

Daiso Fragrance Body Mist with Hyaluronic Acid in Peach - This is a repurchase for me, I really love this scent for a little pick-me-up, I didn't just repurchase 1 bottle, I went ahead and bought 4 bottles, that's how much in love I am with this body mist!

Daiso Silicone Pot Mat - Nisa, again, recommended me to buy this piece of silicone mat found in the kitchen section of Daiso. I loved it, it really helps to clean the brush along with the detergent, it's a perfect combination!

I was a bit overwhelmed by the Bath & Body Works store, I really didn't know what to choose and what to buy, so I decided that I'll just go on ahead and try out their anti-bacterial hand gels in Fresh Lavender, Paris Amour and Lush Bamboo Waterfall, they smell amazing from the testers that they have, I haven't opened them up because I'm trying to finish up my current hand gel from Simphor Pharma Skincare, which is a local skincare brand, if that's appropriate because so far I only see them selling the hand gels, but hopefully they'll branch out to other skincare items, I am all about supporting local brands.

I went to Sephora as well, my god, if only I don't have a time limit to shopping, I'd definitely indulge myself to a little one-on-one with every brand booth they have. LOL. But anyways, I came with a wishlist. I bought some stuffs on my wishlist and some are just on impulse.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation Gel in Dark Beige - I bought this at a Watson, I think, in Suria shopping complex, I really love this! So lightweight, review coming up soon.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup Foundation in 2W2 Rattan - This is my first Estee Lauder product, it's not the most expensive makeup I've ever bought, its basically RM153 or BND55 (currency rate I used is RM2.75) I'm still on the fence whether I really like this foundation or is it just a so-so but however review will come up soon.

Sephora Teint Infusion Foundation in 25 Beige - Bought another foundation to review, I have the other foundation, the Brightening and Hydrating teint, I wasn't disappointed with it so I decided to just go on ahead with the purchase.

Tarte How Sweet It is Deluxe Lip and Cheek Set - I am in love with Tarte as a brand, although I don't have a lot of products from them but I really do adore their packaging, I still however find their items to be a little expensive, I love their blushes but I just can't get myself around to buy with a BND40-something a pop, so I decided to buy the sample set, only because I really want a Tarte blush. Review will come soon!

Stila Smudge Pot in Black - This is an impulse purchase as I really didn't imagine myself buying this, but I was desperate to find a nice and exceptional gel eyeliners, hence the impulse purchase, I did however compare this with one of the MUFE gel eyeliners and decided that Stila's smudge pot is more pigmented than MUFE's

NYX Tinted Brow Mascara in Espresso - I am always on a lookout for brow products and I think brow mascaras are easier to use for barely there makeups or on days which you don't want to wear makeup that much but still want to make an effort. I do wanna try lighter colors of this in hopes that it'll be able lighten my brows a little and fill them up with lighter brow products.

Soap and Glory Flake Away Body Scrub - Everybody always raves about Soap and Glory, I wasn't really interested in this brand but Nisa and Angela actually mentioned about how they really like this product, I saw this near the cashier, a nice deluxe sample and I was like, it won't hurt to try a sample size but usually I liked to purchase a big tub because I run out of body scrubs so easily, but review will come soon InshaAllah.

So that's it for my haul, which product do you want me to review first? :)

Make-up Review: Makeup Academy Pro-Base Argan Plush Concealers

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

Back with another review for the concealers I bought from MUA. MUA and I, we go long back, they're basically the first brand that I bought internationally before I dare to buy other makeup brand, I always go back to their website because seriously, good quality makeup for good price is not something I usually pass.

This is their new concealers from their Pro Base range, I seriously can't remember how much I bought them for but it should be less than BND8! Yepp, they're that cheap.

You know what I had in mind when I ordered this, this would be perfect for cream contouring since they are creamy concealers and I thought the 2 shades I chose were basically lighter/darker than my skintone. I bought the shades Natural and Almond, Almond being the beige shade while Natural is a straight up a few shades lighter than my skintone.

Almost is basically a little bit more yellow-toned than I would have like, still a color that matches me for which, I used this to hide my blemishes., but I was able to make it work by setting it with a normal powder instead of translucent product. From the color that the online catalog showed, it seems to be a bit darker and I wanted to use this as a contour cream stick but unfortunately no. 

Natural, however, has a lighter neutral tone and this is perfect for concealing my dark circles and under eye puffiness, also perfect for that non-shimmery highlighting.

Both this product has a very creamy and slippery at the same time, so this product does need a little bit of setting powder, once set this doesn't budge until your foundation starts to break up, so if you have a long-wearing foundation that works for you, this will perform as well as your foundation. I like that they are retractable but I really hate that since they are so creamy, the product is bound to fall of if you open it upside down. I've done this so many times that I almost give up on using this, sometimes.

They do mention that they contain argan oil which has amazing moisturizing properties, so this does not dry out the skin to where you apply this to, also may have been one of the major contributors of why it is so creamy and slippery.

Skincare Review : Good Virtues Co Glowing & Goodness Brightening Day Cream

Assalamualaikum pretty ladies!

I'm going to introduce you to an almost perfect moisturizer-slash-primer from the Good Virtues Co skincare range. I actually was able to obtain all but one from the skincare range which is their CC cream, I'm still on the fence on purchasing their CC cream as Nisah from thebeautyandfrogs is kind enough to give me a small sample of her CC cream. I find them to be very slippery.

But let's move on to the review for this day cream, shall we?

Let's just stop for a moment and indulge into how beautiful their packaging is, I think at the price point their selling, I bought it at a promotional price $7.90, I haven't went to the nearest Hua Ho to see the price different but I'd assume that it won't be so far off from the promotional price.

As you can see, it comes in a pump bottle form which I like but I really hate the overall packaging as this will be a pain to open up if I want to scoop up the leftovers when it's finished.

It's a lightweight cream when applied, it feels like your face is drinking up the cream, I just don't know how to  explain it but this here is perfect for normal to oily skin. I'm not sure if dry skin would be able to use it because to me this product is hydrating but not too hydrating at the same time. Sensitive skin would also be able to use this, inshaAllah, as there's no harmful ingredients and all products are infused with black seed oil or "habbatus sauda". You do find a note of the habbatus sauda in there with a nice floral powdery scent in there as well, it's not overpowering, it really is a pleasant scent.

I used this as a moisturizing primer for my foundations that has no SPF since this contains SPF30, in terms of longevity I did wear this from 8AM to 11PM every single day during my stint as a promoter for the ASEAN Consumer Fair, I do like the fact that I didn't get oily, I hardly need a touch up when wearing this over my makeup, it really is a very great moisturizer. Although by around 8PM-ish, I did start to get a little bit shiny but not greasy just a little glow showing up on my T-Zone, this says so much because although I am currently have normal-combination skin, I do get a little oily after 7-8 hours. Even without setting my makeup (you do need to make sure that your makeup is not the type to slide off) this helps make sure my makeup is going to stay put for a very long time.

Albeit the great performance of increasing my makeup longevity, if your face do sweat, i.e. you're out and about but not in an air-conditioned environment, it does cut off a few hours of the longevity, so I usually suggest to use this when you know you are going to be in air-conditioned environment the whole day.

On another note, this does brighten my dull skin after a prolong use, however, this day cream is basically for brightening, it does not help any breakouts you might already have, it doesn't calm any raging pimples, but I know for sure that it is good enough not to make your scarring worse than it usually is.

This is pretty much a repurchase for me, although I won't use this for when I know that I'll stay at home because I still have my Rosken serum to go through.
