Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ Review

Introducing my current favorite sunblock_ Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essence sunblock with SPF50+! Grabbed it from Watsons during sale for about RM28 per tube of 50g.

mah new sunblock~

Simple, clean packaging!

I'm so glad it comes with SPF50+ 'cuz I just don't trust sunblock with SPF30+ and below. Not with the scorching hot weather here in Malaysia and I tend to get sunburn really easily...,(>A<,)

back of tube~

Dubbed the No.1 Sunblock brand in Japan, the sunblock pride itself for its 'water-like' sensation and promises 'non sticky & non greasy' residue on the skin and 'keeps skin fresh, moist and  protected'.

Here's a more detailed description of the sunblock~

Sunblock application

light yellowish-green colored cream~

The cream feels cold to the touch which is totally refreshing!

creamy with slightly grainy texture

Unlike all my previous sunblocks, except for the SexyGirl one, this one absorbs really quick into the skin and best of all, it doesn't leave any sticky feeling on your arms and face! Here's how it looks on the back of my hand after a little massaging_total grease free!

no greasy stains!

It does, however, leave this mild, sweet scent on my skin which last for at most 4 hours or less~Also, my skin really does feel more soft after a couple of usage ♥ Unfortunately, this sunblock isn't waterproof and definitely isn't suitable for outdoor activities that's gonna leave you sweaty and such. But I've got no problem with this since I need it mostly for indoor use only~

My rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

I'd definitely get another one after finishing this one~! I really do hope they have this sunblock in a larger packaging..

Mori Girl Inspiration

Just a couple of days ago, I was browsing through heels at and find a number of gyaru-worthy heels, mori girl style which I'm so lusting after♥~! For those who're unfamiliar with the term, mori girl, or Forest girl is a sort of Japanese gal style that focuses on earthly color tones or forest-y hues. More on that some other time, gotta check out these hot heels first!

Btw, I wanted to be a little creative and try my hands editing them but got lazy and am too tired. So I'm just leaving them as they are, half-edited (>x<)

#1 Leopard print multi-strap, RM149.00 from The Fashion Barrage

#2 Alberto Wedge, RM171.90 from Sandals R

#3 McQueen Heels, RM289.95 from Zoom

#4 Espadrille Wedges, RM150.90 from NYC

*All from

I'm so in love with all of them, especially the MacQueen heels with ruffles details! But really, if I have all the money in the world, I'd get them all!! What do you think? Seen any you like here?

ViVi Malaysia premiere issue!

Went to One Utama two days ago and while I was checking out the magazine stand, spotted ViVi Malaysia premiere issue! What's more, it's in English too!!


There's even Ray issue Malaysia&Singapore edition in English!

Grabbed my own copy of the ViVi June issue. I wish I have spotted it sooner, it's almost the end of the month already.

Here's some snapshot from pages of the magazine~ It's a lil' unclear since I took it with the lousy camera of mine. Didn't have the scanner around... ||,(>.<,)|||

[caption id="attachment_2224" align="aligncenter" width="640"] guess who's on blogger spotlight?[/caption]

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Japanese magazine for their endless fashion picks! I can never get bored looking at them over and over again. I wish I can have them all!!


Makeup tutorial~

They're even local entertainment news/events featured in the magazine. Here's one featuring the maids and butlers from Ateliar Royale and MMK Cafe in the then upcoming AFA MY '12! And even a shot of Kaname ♥

OMG~! I'm looking forward for the upcoming issue. Guess I won't have to wait long. Teehee~ (>v</)

Neogence ACE Renewal & Repairing Mask Review

Had the time to sit back and put on a mask last weekend (>v</)

Decided to use Neogence ACE Liposome Renewal and Repairing Mask last night. Got these two when I first got myself the Neogence ACE mini set.


just took it out from the fridge

The packaging is a lil' bulky since there're 3 layers of sheets in there. I'm guessing the white plastic layer is used to keep the moisture of the mask in placed and the blue sheet is to maintain the shape of the mask, else it'll stick together. The mask layer itself is really thin!
One mask, 3 layers! (,O.o,)[/caption]

Direction of use:

(1) Leave mask in fridge for at least 30 minutes-1 hour before using. You can leave it there for a couple of hours too! <-- My new routine before applying masks these days 'cuz I just love how it felt on my skin

(2) Peel off the white plastic layer

(3) Position mask on face then peel off the blue layer

(4) Leave mask on for 15-20 minutes before peeling it off

(5) Leave excess unwashed or simply massage them until they're completely absorbed

This is how the mask looked like after I removed it after 20 minutes~

The 3rd layer. Noticed how thin it is!

I like how the mask fits perfectly on my face_something I'm really fussy about when getting sheet masks_ and best of all, it STAYS! No slipping off though there's just a little too much residue left after I took it off. I think my pores are a little smaller after my second Neogence Ace mask, it's really worth it!

My rating out of 5: ♥♥♥♥

ps, Neogence Ace Renewal & Repairing mask is available in all SaSa outlets at RM9.90 each

Maybelline Makeup Remover - Eye&Lip

Here's my new makeup remover I got especially to remove eye makeup. Remember I did complaint about my Biore one 'cuz it gets into my eyes too often? Went to Watsons and grabbed this Maybelline Makeup Remover for Eye&Lip (40ml) for less tha RM10.

Maybelline Makeup Remover Eye&Lip

Shake well before use~

What I like about this product is how gentle it is to the eyes and lip and it does work to remove makeup well but it isn't one of the best makeup remover I've ever gotten.

I find it doesn't remove my waterproof mascara efficiently as it claims. It takes more than just several wipes to get them off. Alternatively, dabbing some remover onto a facial cotton and leaving it in contact with the makeup. This will take a while though. Also, you got to shake it really often 'cuz the solution tend to break off really fast.

My rating: ♥♥♥

AFA MY '12

Feels like ages since I last blogged! Been caught up with work and horrible traffic I spent most time after work sleeping off the weariness from driving. Traffic's so bad a 25 minutes drive can stretched up to an hour! Gosh...

Anyway, here's what I've been up last weekend~

Attended Anime Festival Asia Malaysia at PWTC onday 2 of the event! My first anime event after finals! Been missing out on a whole lot others in the past 2 months (T^T) So here's photos from the event. There aren't much photos since I left early that day since I was feeling unwell and I also filtered out some photos which are too blurry...

[caption id="attachment_2157" align="aligncenter" width="498"] on the way towards the hall[/caption]

Moekana deck on display!

Definitely can't miss out the cosplayers! Just a handful of photos here tho... too lazy to upload all...

This one's taken at the stage area. Couldn't take much photos since it was too dark (>A<)

Was at the hall watching the performances for the Regional Cosplay Competition. Gave up on taking photos since the quality isn't good and just lie back to enjoy the show. Great stuff!

Hung out at the Malaysia Vocaloid Party booth~ Supporting my M.V.P. buddies who's making their debut appearance at AFA MY '12!

Was resting and helping out at the MVP booth when suddenly the crowd lining up to go into the cafes went wild. Didn't take long to guess what's all the ruckus about. Kaname was there!! So glad I'm like fun size I could squeeze in to see him though on tip toes(>v</)♥

Best shot I could get of Kaname but it's still a lil' shaky... I've got one shot where Kaname was looking directly into the camera but it was just too shaky with the crowd pushing and everything. What a waste. Sadness to the max... (,TAT,)

Other cool stuff at AFA MY '12. Videos source from youtube:

Watsons Mid Year SALE!

Watsons' having a mid year sale right now!! Saw this on their FB page last night and I just had to drop by the nearest Watsons outlet after doing some grocery shopping today~

Grabbed two items here~

Maybelline eye and lip makeup remover and Biore UV Aqua rich SPF50+

Got myself this Maybelline makeup remover since my Biore one totally isn't suitable to remove eye makeup.  ESPECIALLY when I wanna play around with my mascara and eye shadows, I'd need to remove them often and I need something that doesn't sting my eyes all the time! You can read about my Biore Cleansing Oil here.

I wanted to grab KATE liquid eyeliner too but they weren't available in the outlet here *sigh*

And oh~! I found two items that caught my attention!!

The first is this super cute Hello Kitty mascara! Check out the packaging. So cute and pink and there's even polka dots and ribbons~! I somewhat want it because of the uber cute packaging XP but decided I didn't need it yet. Maybe next time~

Maybelline's having a Hello Kitty Glam Up Makeup Contest too!


Hello Kitty Glam Up Makeup Contest[/caption]Here's another thing that caught my attention_ FreshLight hair dye! Yessie~ Watsons' now carrying this cute Schwarzkopf Fresh Light hair dyes in creme type and foam type. They're using Blythe dolls to model their range of dyes.

Schwarzkopf Fresh Light hair dyes in creme and foam kinds!

Colors I like from the Light Foam Coloration range

yummy color~

orange-y brown color

And something I like from the Light Creme Coloration range, my favorite one from the entire range too!


lovely apricot color~

Don't you think the colors are just so adorable? I'm considering getting it since I somewhat love foam type of dyes since they're oh-so-convenient. I had previously tried the Liese Bubble Hair dye and totally loving it so this one's probably worth trying too. Still can't decide between the Juicy Apricot or Sweet Apricot. So happen to want to dye my hair to something orangey brown ♥ What do you think?

Anyway, if you're interested in this dyes too, you can check out the rest of the colors available in their lineup
