It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Q10 Effector

December 2nd, 2017 · Nobody Surrendered

Another skincare product from Korea, It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Q10 Effector. Was attracted to price and the packaging. Less than RM30(can be purchased from Hermo or Althea), it’s quite cheap for 30ml serum in glass bottle with dropper pipette.

It claims that this serum is fast acting and can intensely hydrates your skin and rebuild its depleting collagen and elastin level. Coenzyme Q10 is suitable for dull, rough and aging skin.

It gave me random tiny breakouts however the effect was quite good as my skin felt hydrated, oiliness reduced after a long day. It’s a love-hate relationship. In fact, I just need half pump for my face, one pump was too much. I used this on its own at night. There are tiny yellow beads in there which will melt into your skin on application. The smell of the serum wasn’t too strong, not fragrance free for sure.

Will I buy it again? With the breakouts I got from using it even though it’s random, I will give it a pass.

Julie’s The Best of You 2017

November 9th, 2017 · Nobody Surrendered

Everyone has their own story. Be it bad or good, big or small, it will indirectly impacting someone’s life. We are living in a community where everyone is a part of the ecosystem whether you like it or not. At times, we feel down, we feel that the whole world is against us, we feel hopeless, and all the negative feelings but there are people who are living a life worst than us. We live to learn from people around us, that’s life.

Learn to appreciate, slow down, acknowledge, celebrate and share. To bring the best out of you and those around you. Julie’s(yes… The biscuit manufacturer) has launched the Best of You Movement in May 2014. The social awareness movement is to celebrate everyday heroes. What is your story? Do you have one? Would you like to share? If yes, just drop by the-best-of-you.com

If you would like to see more, read more, know more about this social movement, head over to Vivacity Megamall from 16th-19th November for the first ever The Best of You exhibition in East Malaysia. Get inspired by the stories of appreciation, love, triumph, hopes and dreams from people of all walks of life, in one space! MYFM DJ Winson will also have a session sharing his story on 19th Nov, Sun from 3-4pm.

There are two workshops for you to join and the slot is limited.
1. Special Art Jamming Workshop conducted specially by abstract artist, David Chew.

Left to third right are the people who had shared their story with us. They are Allison, Amy, and Wan.

Allison and Amy are best friends of different race. In West Malaysia, this is uncommon and their story had touched people’s heart. In Sarawak, we might see it as normal, nothing special. Having best friends of different races and hanging out together is just part of our lives but it means a lot for those who are not used to see this kind of friendship.

Wan had to get his foot amputated to set himself free. He suffered from childhood sickness that caused him to not able to enjoy a normal childhood. Now, he is living an active lifestyle even with a prosthetic leg. He can swim with one leg too!

One the right, it’s the founder and consultant, Mr. Sai Tzy Horng.

Last but not least, don’t forget your date with The Best of You at Vivacity next week.

P/S: This last photo is not staged, just snap and go. I only realized when I prepared it for this post. Pretty cool.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy 24K Gold Snail Cleansing Foam

October 25th, 2017 · Nobody Surrendered

While I’m away… A post from yours truly ;p I’m not sure when will the next post come… Soooooo busy!

I was sourcing for new facial cleanser to try after I ran out of Taiwan Magnolia Facial Cleansing. Instead of going to Watsons or Guardian, I went online to look for it, trying my luck in Althea. Too many to choose and I ended up buying Elizavecca Milky Piggy 24K Gold Snail Cleansing Foam because it is big in size and only cost RM25!! No harm trying, price is so affordable. If not suitable, I’ll just use it on my body hahaha…

It came all the way from Korea. The packaging is very unique! Not your normal box but in the shape gold bar. How cute?!?! Even the tube is gold in colour.

It claims that the cleanser consists of snail filtrate (1000ppm) which can sooth and protect your skin from environment harm and gold (10ppm) which is able to provide moisture and brighten your skin. I’ll just take it as it *LOL*

The smell isn’t too bad at first. However, when I lathered it up, there’s some “fishy” smell but still bearable. Now, I got used to the smell already. Been using it for almost 3 months.

The texture of the cleansing form is quite dense, you only need a little and it foams up very well. The bubbles are so fine and rich. I let the bubbles do the cleaning and massaging by very lightly massage it on my face instead of applying too much pressure. Sometimes I’ll leave it for a little longer then I rinsed it off. I’m blown away by the effect. No tout feeling, no dry skin. The face felt so clean, supple, and smooth. Once in a while, I will use it on my body too.

I highly recommend this cleanser. Shouldn’t be a problem to those having dry and/or sensitive skin (I guess…) as I don’t suffer any red patches or itchiness from using it.

October 15th, 2017 · Nobody Surrendered

Oppsss… This sure is taking a long time to come out. I’m sure many Kuchingites know this place already. It’s located at 7th mile area, can be seen at the roadside, a white colonial like building.

It won’t be a lengthy post, photos will able to tell more stories. Whatever posted here were taken back in June 2017. If I’m not mistaken, there are more new exhibits being introduced now.

Entrance fee(fee as of June 2017):
Foreinger: Adult – RM29, Child – RM25
Local(with mykad): Adult – RM19, Child – RM15
Children below 3 years old, FOC

We spent about 2 hours there. Each exhibit is coupled with descriptions. Hence, it’s very educational aside from being fun.

Of all, the food section was my favourite. Really love how the food were created. So real!

Fun? It’s a family friendly place to visit. Do visit it if you have time.
