HiShop Beauty Ambassador

I am very excited to join as a HiShop Beauty Ambassador!! Have you heard of HiShop?? All beauty junkies out there like me surely must have come across this awesome online beauty and cosmetics store. HiShop(pronounced as hai-shop) is an online store where they only carry Genuine Products and believe that beauty should be made accessible for everyone-anytime and anywhere!

I received a lovely welcome pack from the HiShop team where they handpicked each product! Very thoughtful =)

Quite a spacious pink box there!! It really stands out among all the plain boxes in my room hehe
Already loving the package *laughs*

Here's what's inside!

Firstly, not only a treat for me but for you readers as well =)
Get 8% off all your purchase with MilkADeal before 31st May 2013.
So readers, browse through any deals that you like and at checkout point, key in 'MAD0513'
This code is valid for multiple transactions!

Next is a sample of Nature&Co Pure White Lotion Light and

And as I said, HiShop handpicked each item and they must have read that my skin is breaking out these days due to my stressful schedule and it's so sweet of them to put in this Snail Street AC Trouble Mask!

It is a premium skincare facial mask which is ideal to heal acne problems. Yay! Would do a review on this mask in a later post.

For now, I'm gushing over this Yadah Natural Body Lotion =))
I have introduced Yadah brand before in a previous post but have not tried their body lotion.
Yadah is a range of natural skincare products formulated with plant extracts and 100% free from artificial colourings, preservatives, mineral oil, sulphate and parabens. 

First of all, HiShop protected this product so carefully! It was tightly wrapped with bubble wrap notwithstanding that it has another plastic wrapper wrapping the lotion already. 
Good quality control for no leakage or breakage!

The first thing I realised after unwrapping it, is the scent! 
It has a strong tangerine orange scent which is wonderful. But when I saw the product description, it contains 
shea butter, Korean pasque flower, pigweed, green purslane and Japanese pepper fruit but no mention of any tangerine orange scent or some sort. So I'm not sure whether my sense of smell is accurate or not *laughs* Nevertheless, it smells sooo good!!! 

It is a white cream and quite thick but non greasy.

Since it's quite thick, it takes a few more rubs to absorb into the skin but it absorbed rather quickly. 
Further, it's moisturising and makes skin feel supple.
If you're worried whether the scent is overpowering, don't fret because after application, the scent will subside and it just have a slight tangerine smell lingering all day.

You can find all above products at HiShop and their website is very user friendly and very easy to navigate. They have really good sale offers as well and they deliver for free nationwide for purchases above RM50. 

On top of that, HiShop is giving away RM20 off for any purchases above RM100 to all you readers. Just key in the discount code 'LOVEHISHOP' and this code expires on 30th June 2013.

Also, if you do not want to miss any exclusive offers, subscribe now to Hishop's newsletters.

Besides that, you can show them your support by liking HiShop Facebook page.

Thank you so much Hishop <3

Kate Eyeshadow DB in BR- 2

I got this eyeshadow from Vanity Trove's April edition and this is one product from the trove which I absolutely love!

Each Kate Eyeshadow DB boosts a palette with two shades that can be used individually or mixed. A third colour can be created by mixing the two shades for a beautiful gradation! It comes in 8 different hues. Mine is BR-2 which is brown and very light pink.

Kate eyeshadow DB by Kanebo.

Colour BR-2. Made in Japan.

The packaging looks classy, no?

2 individual colours and the borderless part for gradation.

Brown and very light pink for base.

Swatches. Look at how shimmery the colours are! 

I'm not one of a very heavy makeup person so the light neutral colours are just perfect for me.
Lighter shade for the base and darker colour on top.
However, somehow brown-ish colours make me look a bit pale...

So, eyeliner is a must! It's my number one Must-Have!

Pair it with eyebrow pencil, mascara, blusher, gloss and that's a finished look!

Lovin it! =)

Kate Eyeshadow DB retails for RM49(1.6g each)

Gwyneth Paltrow got a bit daring when she wore this sheer dress by Antonio Berardi at the Iron Man 3 premiere! Look at this 40 year old mom! She's sexy and she knows it!

I don't think she's wearing any undergarments *gasp*

Only she could pull this look off without looking trashy! So graceful!

TT mask- Instantaneous Brightening Cooling Mask

Thanks to Butterfly Project and Plusizekitten, I received my package of masks from Timeless Truth(TT) mask!!

3 instantaneous brightening cooling mask for bloggers' review and 1 Q10 caviar nourishing mask from Plusizekitten Easter giveaway. On top of that, TT mask added two discount vouchers! YAY!

I'll be reviewing the cooling masks!

First of all, I've heard many rave reviews about TT masks! It made me so impatient to try on their masks too and see what I've been missing. This is my first time by the way trying out any mask by Timeless Truth.

Besides that, it came at a perfect timing seeing that the weather these days is crazy!! I'm sweating buckets without air cond! Further, with my stressful schedule, I just needed some pampering with a cooling mask on. A few minutes of relaxation time is a luxury these days for me!

TT Instantaneous Brightening Cooling Mask.

1. Use after face cleansing.
2. Adjust mask to align the center of the mask with the center of the skin contours positioning openings for eyes and mouth.
3. Remove mask after 15-20 minutes.
4. Gently massage the remaining essence into skin. Post cleansing is not needed.
5. Apply skincare products thereafter to lock in moisture.

It contains STAY-C 50, m-Tranexamic Acid, Calendula, Menthol, Hyaluronic Acid, DI Water.

When you first take out the mask, be careful to let the excess essence drip inside the packet(it's filled with so much essence and so concentrated!) or else you'll have dripping essence on the floor and it'll be wasted. The excess essence can be used for your neck, skin or  body!

It has a plastic layer on top of the face mask. 

Just peel it off and the face mask is the exact proportion to your face!

Great fit and translucent so that you won't really scare people away if someone happens to come into your room =p

Masking time is a short napping time for me hehe

Yes, I added my own cooling cucumber mask pad and hugged my teddy and dreamt away for half an hour =)

The first instant I touched the mask, I felt woah soo cooling! And when it touched my face, it has that icy cool mint feeling which is soo therapeutic! It's such a stress reliever and a break from the scorching hot weather.

So, wana see the effect of this instantaneous brightening cooling mask? It is after all, following the name, supposed to have an instant effect!

My skin has been dehydrated mainly due to lack of rest and sleep lately. So in the 'before' picture, you can see it is dry and my huge pores are visible *bangs head* However, after putting on the mask, my skin is so much more moisturised, pores less visible and brightened! YAY! Loving the mask which is not only fun to put on due to the cooling minty effect but repairs my skin at the same time! Further, the essence absorbed rather quickly.

The next day, I wanted to 'up' the cooling effect and decided to put the mask in the fridge for awhile before putting it on. First thing, 'WOAH! Brain freeze!' Haha I felt like my face is on top of a mountain somewhere *laughs* But it's temporary and after that it's the usual cooling minty feeling! Also, after putting in the fridge, the mask is less 'drippy' from the concentrated essence.

Two days in a row putting on the TT mask and my face seem brighter, clearer and pores not so visible. The best part is the oil control. My face did not feel oily at all after taking out the mask. It's moisturised and oil free for the whole day.

Retails for RM8 for one mask, which is so reasonable for a great mask!
You can buy it online HERE

For more info, visit www.ttmask.my or TT Facebook page

Do support TT mask at the upcoming International Beauty Expo event from 18th to 21st May, 2013 at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre at Booth number 2003 and 2005.

When depression sets in...

You know how on some days when you just can't get up because it's just too depressing to face the world??
When all you want to do is curl up in bed with your fluffy pillow?
You just want to sleep and that no one should disturb you?

Well, I'm sure some of us had those days before. When 'things to do' list is as high as a mountain and that 24 hours is not enough in a day, when everything you do is not right and nothing seems right anymore. Technically, it's probably dysthymia, a low-grade chronic level of unhappiness, but sometimes all these could lead to deep pit depression.

You know what? To not let it fall too deep, just take a moment, tell yourself, 'I have half an hour to be depressed! Half an hour to grumble about how unfair the world is, it just sucks to live here, yada yada yada' and then half an hour later, snap out of it, get up and get on with things because life has to go on!

Half an hour. It's all you need. Life shouldn't be a bout of depression.

Esmeria hair and body care range trial set

I have introduced Esmeria Organics recently in my Esmeria post.
I've got to say I'm loving organic products more and more these days due to its mildness which is perfect for my skin!

I'm currently using the hair and body care trial set which is about to finish soon *sad*

The Prickly Pear Protective shower gel and body lotion for normal skin.

Gentle amino acid and sugar derived cleansers combined with Aloe Vera leave skin feeling clean, calm and hydrated.

Contains Jojoba oils, Sunflower oils, Shea butter and Rosehip oils.

With the combination of both, my skin didn't feel dry. The shower gel lathers well without needing much amount. The body lotion is not too concentrated which is why I love it and not sticky yet leaving my skin supple and moisturised! Both are also mildly scented which have a lingering scent!

Shower gel retails at RM29.90 for 250ml
Body lotion retails at RM35.90 for 150ml

Next, the Butterfly Bush & Aloe Vera Frequent Use Shampoo and Conditioner for Normal Hair.

Featured in Cleo's Beauty Hall of Fame 2011, the frequent shampoo has Swiss mountain water and Aloe Vera to soothe and hydrate the scalp and Alpine Butterfly Bush and Common Thyme to moisturise and provide anti-oxidants.

Contains Jojoba oil and Shea butter for nourishment and gloss.

It's a mild shampoo and conditioner once again which is perfect for a frequent shampoo user. The shampoo lathers well with a great mild scent and cleanses scalp without the harsh chemicals and the conditioner makes hair soft and clean. I love that after all the chemicals my hair is subjected to, it's given some pampering with natural products.

Shampoo retails at RM39.90 for 250ml
Conditioner retails at RM39.90 for 150ml

Overall, if you're into non chemical products and are strong in your ethical and environmental standards, and love organic ingredients such as herbs, oils, plants, etc, you'll love all the products above.
