Innisfree Haul: It's Real Squeeze Masks & Eco Nail Color PRO Review

Happy Holidays, people!

Taking the chance to post yet another review~ I was planning on writing other reviews first but decided to skip them and get straight to introducing some of the products I've gotten from Innisfee just last month (*^○^*)

Innisfree has just open its third branch in Malaysia at Pavillion just weeks ago. There are other two branches are based in Petaling Jaya, if I'm not mistaken though getting to those places are not really convenient for me so I haven't shopped at Innisfree before. Having heard tons about this brand, I decided I must drop by to check out their products.

Ended up buying some stuff yayyy (*^o^*)v

me & my Innisfree haul

My first purchases from Innisfree is the Innisfree It's Real Squeeze masks which retails at RM4 per sheet and the Eco Nail Color PRO nail polish in #133, priced at RM10 per bottle.

Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Masks & Eco Nail Color PRO

So far, for the masks, I have tried the Green Tea, Bija and pomegranate masks and love how moisturizing they are! On a scale of 10 for their moisturizing level, I'm definitely goving the full score!

Apart from that, I didn't notice any other significant results. Also, for a mask that claims to be 'real squeeze', the scents tell otherwise... Nevertheless, I would definitely restocked on these because the masks sheets are thin and comfortable, the kind I like.

For the nail polish, I opted for a pearly tone, a shade I don't have among my collection of nail polish yet.

Innisfree Eco Nail Color PRO #133Super love the pearly white color (^∇^)~♡ I actually wanted to wear it for my company's coming Christmas celebration which was last week but had no nail polish remover to clean the colors I've tested fml (=___=)

I noticed that Innisfree has quite a selection of pretty nail polishes. Check them out↓

Tried several colors and found a milk coffee color I likeyy~~♡

Innisfree's Nail Color

The photo isn't doing it any justice but IMO the real deal is of a very elegant color that is suitable to be worn for classy functions at the same time super otona and Mode so suitable for work. I've tried several pastel brown shades from The Face Shop and other brands but they didn't give off the same feeling, if you know what I mean.

Love it lots though I didn't buy it because I have another almost similar shade from OPI.

Since it was the opening month, with my purchase, I received an Innisfree membership card and samples from their Best Loved Collection which includes Innisfree's Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask, The Green Tea Seed Serum and Orchid Enriched Cream.

I have tried them all and especially love their clay mask and serum.

The former because my skin and pores feel tight afterwards. It has a super thick texture and it took me quite some effort to dig them out with my fingers. Still, thanks to the texture, I find it really easy to spread onto my face evenly and not having to worry about it dripping off my face. While waiting for it to dry off, I could feel the cooling effect.

Innisfree's The Green Tea Seed Serum

Super love the serum because of the sweet scent! (which is not the sickening type, I don't know how to describe..)

Innisfree's Orchid Enriched Cream

Compare to the serum, the scent is pretty mild.

To be fair, I wouldn't comment much about the effectiveness of the serum and the cream because I think it may require longer period of application before any results are visible. I would definitely want to purchase them to try them out nevertheless. Well, next time surely!

Post Laser Treatment at Ting Skin Specialist (Part 2)

Sorry it took me awhile to follow up on this post. Last week have been pretty eventful for me with all the year end and early Christmas celebrations going on.

Anyway, it has been over 2 months since I last did a laser on my face at Ting Skin Specialist. During the period, I received quite a number of questions about the result, which I will be sharing with you in this post.

Here's the most recent photo of le me taken last weekend #NoEditOne

I wouldn't say I'm 100 percent satisfied because some scars are still quite visible (they are the reason why I wanted to do the laser in the first place). Same goes to my pores though they do appear smaller.

The most significant difference after undergoing the laser surgery would be my skin  appears very much smoother now. The skin area which previously had large, depression scars seems to have regenerated and are those marks that appears lighter in color compare to my normal skin tone.

This, I'm satisfied. Least I'm seeing result for the pain that I had to go through. Editing photos are faster too because I have less pores/scars to Photoshop off my face wth lol.

I'm considering round 2 of laser after consulting the dermatologist again. Perhaps I should inquire if they are offering any other laser treatment particularly any that targets the scar directly...

Alrighty, will keep you posted if I do~!

first visit to number76

Dropped by No.7 Mid Valley branch for a haircut yesterday~!

Finally get to try them out. Been wanting to do so in forever and finally got a chance because unlike the previous place I was staying, my place now doesn't have any saloons nearby which gives me good excuse to go there LOL

I made a last minute appointment so there was only a slot at 7pm.. So late wth (>a<) On the brighter side, they're open until 10pm so if you're busy during the day, you can drop by in the evening.

My stylist that day, Emily helped me trimmed my hair and bangs. There was another dude I don't know what's his name who helped wash my hair as I requested for the Tansan Sparkling Scalp Wash. After washing he showed me the residues from my scalp and I freaked out.

This here.

Number76 Tansan Sparkling Scalp Wash

Freaking disgusting.

I have been having really oily scalp which seems to have gotten worse sometime early this year to the extend that my bangs always appear oily. So that explains why there are so much icky things on my head wtf ( XoX )

So I guess it was a good idea to do the Tansan because it helps clean the scalp. My hair do feel oil-free afterwards and today as well! I checked with the dude on how often can/must one do the Tansan and he recommended every 2-4 weeks.

(Update Jan 4th, 2016) It's been over two weeks since I did the Tansan service and it's awesome I tell you! My hair has been less oily! Before, it was very obvious when my hair becomes oily because it shows on my bangs :/ Totally recommended to do Number76's Tansan (and perhaps the other scalp treatments) if you have oily hair.

Because my hair is super oily, Emily advised me to do scalp treatment at home so I guess I need to start hunting at the hair care aisle in pharmacies.

This is my hair right after the haircut~

after haircut & tansan service at Number76

My hair today~~~


To be honest, I still look like the usual me wtf. Hmmmm... kinda super bored with my forever-the-same hairstyle...

I just learned that members can get their bangs trimmed for free! Yessss~~ Those with bangs will get it. It's a pain to wait till you wanna trim BOTH your bangs and hair. That's what I usually do anywaylah because my previous stylist will charge me RM10 just to trim 1.5cm off my bangs (=____=)

Aside from that, haircut for children under five FOC too (^o^/) #dunnowhythisalsoimexcited #justhappyforyouparentswithchildrenunderfive

Gifts from Number76 on my first visit_a planner, two RM10 vouchers and a membership card~~♡

another new chapter of my life

It was a busy month last month. I resigned, moved and started working in another company in that order and boy, the whole thing was overwhelming.

The change is welcoming though now I’m still trying to adapt to my new routine so some things related to blogging like my OOTDs post, or even going for round two of laser surgery may be my second priority, I don’t know.

To make the whole moving process easier, I hired a mover and both my siblings were there to help which I’m really grateful for. Also, I’m glad I’ve been minimalizing my stuff (Read more about it here and here){link & link} so packing was a bit easier.

Moving day~

i moved, again!

My things are still in boxes, in the luggage, everywhere and all so they’re driving me nuts because I need to dig them up when I want to use them then put them back because I still don’t have enough space on my own*rolls eyes* Even my work desk is littered with foodstuff and utensils (I haven’t got an extra cupboard to place them) so trying to study is a headache…

I probably need to get some utensils and start cooking again because food here in my new place is rather pricey and unbalanced. I’ve been lacking of greens and one time, I had maggi for dinner four times in a week (T___T) Feeling so frigging unhealthy!

On the brighter side, there are lotsa stuff I like about my new place, the whole getting out of usual routine and my new workplace.

Things may get a bit hectic in a while as I’m still trying to get use to well, everything though I will still try to blog whenever I can.

Wish me luck~!
