Shopping Haul

So last month, I was in KL for a short weekend break…. The parents didn’t know until I was at the doorsteps…. Hahaha! In fact, here’s a funny story…. I called the house phone to get someone to open the door….

Sister: hello?

Me: eh P, open the door….

Sister: oh ok…. *puts down the phone*

I thought to myself…. Um that’s it? You’re not gonna ask who was that in the line? So after a while, I saw my whole family at the door…. I waved vigorously and screamed “Surprise!!”

Later I found out the 2nd half of what happened after my sister put down the phone….

Dad: who was on the phone?

Sister: err, I don’t know…. A girl just asked me to open the door….


That was why the whole family was at the door…. ==”

That aside, after saving up for so long in this small town, all hell broke loose…. I went out on a mini shopping spree with the boyfie…. @@ so in this post, I’m gonna share with you what I bought…. ^^

Snail Street Cream Review

Remember my on-going complain of a surface-of-the-moon facial skin? So some time back, I bought this Snail Street Cream from

20130508_195021aPicture of the cream from my old blog~~

Here’s what the website claims….


Improves elasticity, firmness, density & texture of the skin

When cream is applied to fibroblasts (cells that synthesis collagen), it enhances the proliferation & functional capability of these cells

Keeps skin soft & helps heal troubled or acne skin

Helps regenerate damaged skin & prevent dryness

Brightens skin, soften wrinkles & treats fine lines

Softens scars and smoothes stretch marks

I didn’t review about it because the website says that “For most skin conditions, it may take anytime between 1 to 4 months of daily use (twice a day) of Snail Cream to see visible results” so I decided to give the product its fair share of use to avoid bias….


Snail Secretion Filtrate, Xanthan Gum, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol , Glycosyl Trehalose, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Methylparaben , Disodium EDTA, Adenosine, Phenoxyethanol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Batyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Lecithin, Sorbitan Stearate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Lanolin , Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Propylparaben , Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Diethylhexyl Carbonate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Dimethiconol, Fragrance, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Titanium Dioxide, Arbutin

The short version of my verdict? Some yea, some nay…. Let’s look at it in more detail….

Nature & Co. Vital Purity Lift Mask Review

So previously I mentioned about buying some beauty items from, and we could choose some free samples to come along with our purchases….

Try to spot the mask inside my box! 😀


 Few weeks (or was it months? hahaha!) back, I tried the Nature & Co. Vital Purity Lift Mask and I must say, I’m quite fond of that mask…. 🙂 Nature & Co. is under the umbrella of 1 of Japan’s cosmetic giant Kosé, running an organic line…

With a small sample pack like this, and also a small face (chey, self-praise), I managed to use the mask 4 times! This is such a huge bargain compared to many sample packs which I have tried before, they only give enough for 1 or 2 applications…. How can a consumer determined if your product is good for them and it is worth buying if they have only tried once? Right? Right?

Ok, so back to the Vital Purity Lift Mask… It is a clay mask, so when you apply it on your face, it hardens after awhile…. It would have been better if there was some sort of brochure or instructions coming together with the mask though, especially for people who are exposed to this mask for the 1st time…. I was wondering if it was a wash-off or peel off mask! Blur me…. Hahahahahaha….

Here’s how the consistency looks like when squeezed from the sachet… it’s not too thick, glides onto the skin quite easily because of it’s rather thin consistency…. But you’ll need to layer it properly to have a good coverage…

Oh! Another important point why a brochure is needed is so that the product can be introduced…. Just by looking at the sachet, I was wondering what will it do to my face? Or what ingredient does it contain? This is important for people with allergies…. Despite internet being readily available, many girls become like small children when they receive free gifts, especially beauty products! So we tend to become over-excited that we want to try it out ASAP…. XD

So I ended up using it before searching the internet about it…. :p Well, in a way, you don’t know what to expect from a product, and your expectations won’t be that high…. Lazy+busy me only searched about this mask AFTER I finished the whole packet…. Hahaha….

They claim to be able to tightens pores and smoothens skin texture (not sure if my pores were tightened, but I do feel a firmer skin after washing off the mask), the mask also has this cool-feeling when applying it, even when it is in room temperature…. Imagine if it was stored in a fridge…. Xb

According to HiShop’s website, the mask is to be left on for 5 minutes before washing off, but I like to leave my mask on longer, at the same time doing other chores/work…. I actually left mine on for like 15-20 minutes, and the cool sensation stayed…. yay! Good to use during hot weather….

Here’s how it looks on your skin.… But oops! I forgot to take a before and after pics.… :p

Another thing I like about this mask is that it does not have too strong a perfume/fragrant smell, instead it has a herb-ish kind of smell…. too much of fragrance is not good for our skin…. And unlike other clay masks which I have tried (not that I’ve tried a lot tho), it was easy to wash off, no rubbing required! Just continuously splash your face with cold water and it will slowly rinse the mask off, leaving a soft & supple skin… 😀

Will I buy this mask? Oh yes! But after I have finished the tonnes of other masks I have on my table currently…. Or else I’ll just end up hording more masks… :O but if there are any kind-hearted people, I don’t mind a wonderful gift… :p It costs RM88.90 in for a 140ml and it comes in a jar…. A mask in a jar is something I’m not very fond of, but sadly most masks I used come in a jar…. >.<

Have you tried this mask? Are you also a mask freak like me? What other masks have you tried that works for you as it claims? Do share below at the comments…. 🙂

Skinfood Goldkiwi Hydrating Mask Review

Hello dear readers! Today, I’m gonna talk about a mask which I really loved & went to buy after using the sample pack for the first time! It’s the Skinfood Goldkiwi Hydrating Mask….

It comes in this small jelly-like packaging, probably to avoid it from too much environmental exposure…. So once you’re done with one, then only you open another…. Continue reading

of Snails and Secretions…. :p

I’ve been meaning to blog about this for a long time…. To be exact, almost a month! Well, I’ve got solid reasons…. Please do forgive me…. Few weeks back, my friend’s car got broken into and 4 of our bags were stolen…. Making matters worse, my purse was in my bag! Which means my identity card, driver’s license, money, bank card & student id are now all GONE!! Imagine the trauma I had to go through…. But my friend had it worse; her car was damaged too in addition to a missing purse!

Nanowhite Polishing Exfoliator Review

*confession bear* I have never been regular & hardworking in keeping my skin clean during my teenage years…. Also because I had really bad acne during that time, I had no motivation to maintain my skin as I was really low in self esteem (even till now) that didn’t felt the need to do something about it….

Now as I have passed that hormonal blooming stage, 2-3 years later, my skin no longer breakout that badly, only the occasional stress or hormone related zits…. However, I have been left with many acne scars & the most annoying, hard to get rid blackheads! They’re like black pepper sprinkled over my nose! >.<

A surprise box?

There comes a time where you girls have been bffs for many years and when the yearly question of what to get for her birthday arrives, you go nuts thinking what to get for her…. @@ because you got basically everything from purse to bags, t-shirts to dress throughout those years….

That question was running through my mind last month as my bff’s birthday is near and I had no idea what to get, time to find or access to shopping malls to get her present! Adding to the bad situation was that I won’t be around again this year as I’m studying outstation….
