Miacare review (plus giveaways!)

Who has gone through adolescence without a single pimple?
Even if you are one of those with the smoothest skin around, I'm sure there's sure a zit that pops out every once in awhile. I know I went through adolescence with acne problem >.< Even up to now, I still have zits that pop out during that time of the month.

 Though pimples are only temporary, the mere sight of them scattered all over your face is really unpleasant. Acne isn’t just skin deep. Acnes are actually signs of inflammation under the skin. Acnes develop when hormones fluctuate, wrong inventory of certain food we eat, alcohol intake, irregular bowel movements and when you are under extreme stress.

But, not to worry because Miacare has introduced a range of Ultra-thin, stick-on pimple patches designed to effectively combat visible blemishes effortlessly. Miacare is wholly owned by the BenQ Group. "mia", in Italian means my, and care means caring, hence miacare gives meaning to the caring and being a guardian to the user, and that has to be all day, all year.

Using a two-fold method, the patch heal pimples without scarring whilst concealing it. Suitable for all skin types, featuring 3 types of patches:

Day 12 - (thinnest for day use) RM10.05
Night 12 - (for maximum pus absorption for night) RM10.30
Day & Night 18 (for whole day total pimple care) RM14.50

Today, I'll be reviewing Miacare Day & Night Acne Patch!

Give complete protection to troubled skin with Acne Patch Day & Night (18 patches), which brings the benefits of both Day (9 patches) and Night (9 patches), all in a pack. Keep skin free from environmental harm during the day, and provide for an intensive healing regime throughout the night for 24hr care. A must have first-aid beauty essential for sudden break outs! Never get caught off guard or worry about zits be it day or night!

The mission of miacare is to resolve concerns effectively with professional, smart and special designed product, bringing confidence and joy into life.

Made from 100% medical grade hydrocolloid dressing used by medical professionals to heal wounds, the acne patch naturally absorbs pus to reduce inflammation and promote a quick drying out of the pimple to reveal skin clearing effects in just 72 hours. Doubling up as a barrier against bacteria contamination from the external environment, the pimple is also thoroughly concealed with an improved ultra-thin technology (the patch centre is thick to increase pus absorption, and patch surrounding is thin to make the patch becomes invisible) that sticks like a second skin for high invisibility. Further, with an UV-Prevention technology, the patch can absorb more than 95% of harmful UV ray. The patches prevent potential acne pigmentation from forming to maintain a flawless complexion.

Highly absorbent and ultra-thin (0.015cm), the Acne Patch Day is made to be inconspicuous for day use. The thinnest patch of the range adheres exactly to the contours of the pimple and matches any skin tone, making it almost unnoticeable. Applicable to be worn under makeup due to the patch being ultra-thin, it guards the inflamed area from chemicals in makeup. This ensures that the skin is given the right environment to heal, free from irritants and bacteria for relieved skin at the end of the day.

Use the Acne Patch Night (0.018cm) to continue your battle with stubborn zits even while resting at night. With a thicker hydrocolloid dressing designed for an accelerated absorption of pus throughout the night, the patch adheres firmly to the skin to prevent it from falling off through tosses and turns.It allows for a fast, overnight remedy where clear and trouble-free complexion is just a sleep’s throw away.

1. Cleanse hands and acne area thoroughly. Dry well before application to create a clean environment

2. For best results, it is recommended to be used on acne with pus

3. Replace with a new patch once current patch turns white in colour as it indicates that pus has been absorbed from the acne.

4. Alternatively, change the patch after using it for more than 12 hours

So, I have this zit which doesn't seem to go off even after 2 weeks. When I pinch it, the pus comes out and when I thought it'll heal, it comes back -.- 

So, I got the help of Miacare acne patch for this stubborn zit.
After cleansing the affected area, remove half of the acne patch and attach the first half to the acne and then remove the other half to release the paper.

Gently press the patch for 3-5 seconds for better adhesion and invisibility.


It's the skin colour and invisible. Use the acne patch before applying makeup.

After makeup, you can barely see any patch on my skin.

It's like you've not put any sticky patch on the skin hehe

Just let it work its miracle while you're out the whole day!

I realised after wearing it out the whole day, the patch became white with the acne pus and after using it at night while I sleep, the next day my acne healed thereafter with no scarring ^_^ 
So finally, I don't need to be annoyed with that stubborn zit LOL

NOW, It's GIVEAWAY time!

I have three Miacare Acne Patch for Day (3 patches) trial packs...

...and 3 Miacare Watsons voucher.

Kindly email me at with the title "Miacare Giveaway" and provide your Name and Address and I will post one trial pack and one voucher to the first 3 readers who email me =)

Thank you Miacare for curing my stubborn zit!! <3

Muffinbeauty x Bourjois

I believe most of you have heard of Makeupalley or Birchbox especially when it comes to beauty product reviews. Now let me introduce Asian first beauty review social platform- MuffinBeauty! MuffinBeauty is the first beauty review community targeting Asian women. People are increasingly looking up online reviews at TripAdvisor or any other similar websites before deciding on which hotel to stay. And MuffinBeauty is like a beauty version of TripAdvisor in Asia. A platform where everyone shares information and makes neutral reviews about beauty products.

There is a Muffin Beauty Club set up especially for beauty enthusiasts and bloggers who share reviews in their own social media sites actively. With only minimum 10 reviews written in MuffinBeauty, you already have a ticket to join this club and a member can access the redemption page in order to receive products for making reviews. This is how the team rewards review contributors. You stand higher chances to receive products for review if we constantly share about genuine and useful reviews to the community.

I am invited to join the MBC by the Muffin team and there it goes my first beauty box! I will be reviewing Bourjois products today. Bourjois is a make up brand from Paris, France. They have recently launched some new products in Malaysia and I'm excited to try!

Bourjois is famous for their mascaras. 

Introducing the seductive push up mascara- Bourjois Volume Glamour Effet Push Up Mascara in Black Waterproof.

The mascara captures each lashes perfectly for a perfect curve.

It adds allure to eyes by adding extra coats on outer lashes.


This Push Up Volume Waterproof Mascara gives the ‘Push Up’ effect for intense volume, irresistible curves and length in alluring black

It contains a formula that shapes the lashes and a brush with coating fibres for volume that’s 11 times more breathtaking!

This tireless mascara stays in place perfectly whatever the activity. It is long lasting and can even last for the entire day! Yup, it lasts up to 24 hours! The texture is non sticky and really lifts up the lashes for a big eye effect. It is lightweight and does not weigh down the lashes even after wearing for the entire day. It doesn’t smudge as well after a day full of activities and proves that it is definitely waterproof.

And let me tell you this true life story haha...Remember I was eating the spicy wings in Frontera until I cried my eyes out? Luckily that night, I was wearing Bourjois mascara and I was so worried when I started crying that it will start smudging. Guess what? My mascara stayed perfectly in place with not a single smudge! Besides, I was already wearing for more than 12 hours and after the crying, my mascara still stayed in place even past midnight. Truly a long lasting mascara this one! <3

After an awesome try with the Volume Glamour Effet Push Up Mascara, I was now excited to try Bourjois’ very first fresh-effect blush!

Bourjois Aqua Blush in 03 Pink Twice.
This seems like a cream blush without the creamy/sticky texture.
In fact, since I have oily skin, I stayed away from cream blushers because it will just make my skin oily looking. But, I am now a convert! This ultra-fluid gel is as refreshing as a sorbet and gives your complexion amazing radiance.

Just one dollop...

And there you have a shiny but matte texture of pink blush on the skin <3
The fluid texture is fantastic to brighten up the skin for an unbelievable freshness.
An extra point is that it smells sweet and nice.

 Apply a small amount to the cheek using the finger. 

 Spread using a circular motion to bring out the colour.

The color is a radiant pink and it freshens up the cheeks!
It gives a light sweet tint on the cheek but sometimes one dollop is not enough. Probably enough for a sunny day out but I always apply 2 dollops on each cheek for work and 2 ½ to 3 dollops for dinner.

The best part is that the colour becomes one with your skin, without leaving a mark! It blends really well into the skin as the texture is not sticky but matte. 

A dream for the skin, perfectly light and natural. It is also long lasting and proven to last for 12 hours.

Aqua Blush:
-boosts your skin’s freshness,
-brightens up the complexion,
- gives you a touch of colour with purity, radiance and a healthy glow

I'm a big fan of blushers because even just on bare skin, with pink cheeks, it can give your face some colour without looking pale. Now, even better, I'm sold on this Aqua Blush!

Come and join the Muffin Beauty Club where you get to redeem new products from merchants, beauty vouchers and shopping coupons and invitation to beauty workshops and events occasionally. See you in the community =)

September eats

September is definitely the month I ate the most! And September is not even done yet -_-
I think in this month alone, I have gained at least 2 kgs by all the eatings!

I'm just going to go on random on the yummylicious food I had for the the past 3 weeks.

Had wine tasting at Neroteca, Bukit Ceylon and my oh my, this is the BEST meat platter I have ever tasted in my life! The meats were soft and a bit salty and sliced to perfection.

Went to Signature by the Hill and it was such a gastronomic experience!  

The famous Watermelon slushie. It was really refreshing and the alcohol taste was not overpowering!

Chiken Tika for starters. The sauce was to die for and blended well with the chicken!

Lamb shank with mashed potato and asparagus- cooked to perfection.

Best. Burger. Ever. (Sorry that the picture is bad)
In my life, I have always said Ramly burger is the best even after trying so many other types of burgers in restaurants. Now, I can say I really tried the best Wagyu burger in my life! The meat patty was delicious and coupled up with the Foie Gras and cheese, it tasted SOOOOO Good!!! No chilli sauce needed, no nothing. The burger eaten by itself is fantastic by itself. I will want to come back for this burger.

Moving on to desserts.
I really love Inside Scoop waffles and ice cream <3
To date, I went to Inside Scoop 3 times in 2 months LOL

Charcoal waffle.

All their ice creams have unique taste and I really love the cozy environment. Will definitely be back for more times hehe.

I'm also in love with A Pie Thing.
Been there twice in 3 months!

I love the Mashed Potato they add on top of the pies and the Nutella Pie with ice cream was awesome!

Went back again for the Salted Caramel Cheese Pie.
This really tickled my taste bud with the sweet and salty taste.

Will also be back for more pies hehe

Moving on to Chinese food. Went to Klang the other day and had Bak Kut Teh.

You can't be in Klang and not have this.

Also, there's this Pork Noodle shop in SS15 Subang that people queue for 50 minutes just for a bowl of Pork Noodle -_-

I waited 20 minutes for this. I will not wait longer for another bowl haha. It was good though and the soup was really tasty.
Back to more food exploration!

The Cafe BBQ Chicken at One City Skypark, USJ.
This Pane Mushroom Chicken Soup is one of a kind. You could eat the bread and drink the soup altogether. 2 in one. Me likey hehe

Went for a friend's wedding in Kluang, Johor and managed to try out the famous Kluang Station coffee shop. Very old school and it's somewhere I could definitely go daily for breakfast.

Next is Mexican Food at Frontera Sol of Mexico, Jaya One. 

Chicken Fajitas.

Platter for appetizers.

We ordered way too much and it was one of the memorable gastronomic experience.

Let me warn you about the chicken wings. We ordered the spiciest of all spicy wings ever and we were crying the whole night because it was just TOO spicy LMAO!! It was definitely the highlight of the night and Mexico's level of spicyness is just unbelivable. I also cannot believe they fry chilis to be eaten >.< The fried Jalapeno with the spicy wings with bell peppers made it a very spicy night HAHA

Another highlight of this month is definitely the seafood I ate in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
It was my first trip to Sabah and the best seafood I have ever eaten.

Welcome restaurant is famous and serve the best seafood dishes. The crabs, prawns, fish etc were wiped out! It was super finger licking good,

I even tried snails and it actually doesn't taste bad. Very surprising and I quite like it.

More seafood on a cold platter. Squid, oysters, prawns, sashimi and abalone. I hope I don't have high cholesterol LOL

You see Sabah's prawn! H-U-G-E!
The abalones were huge too! Everything comes in XL sizes haha 

I truly had a fantastic eating time this month. It's time so shed the weight hehe
But oh wait, I have another 2 weddings coming up this coming weeks.

Is is an auspicious time of the year? Nevermind, at least it's treating my tummy well. Only not so well for my weight haha
