Deepsea Water-Facial Mist

Salam People,

It's F.R.I.D.A.Y and weekend is here.....guess most of us will be on long holidays (X'mas and New Year) unfortunately I'm NOT :-( *Cuti dah habis daa...* :P.

While enjoying your long holidays, our skin needs to hydrate and besides that ensuring to drink at least 2 litre of fluids, this wonderful product from Shu Uemura is a great assistance to our skin hydration!

Deepsea water they called it is taken from the depth of the ocean where sunlight does not reach, at 200 meters. Completely free of artificial color, natural aromatic extracts are then added to become lightly scented mists that rejuvenate and hydrate the skin, hair and body.

You can use it anytime! For me--I usually use it before my make up routine after I put on my moisturizer. Also, I use it when I have finished my make up as it takes away cakeyness and gives it a glow.

Eight herbal aromas provide refreshing feel to energize the skin, but my all time favourite is MINT :-). Others like Lavender, Bergamot, Chamomile, Hamamelis, Rose, Rosemary and also available in Fragance Free ;-)

Shu Uemura Deepsea Water Facial Mist

My favourite - MINT :D

Enjoy your weekend people and Happy Holidays!....Until to you again!

Let's talk about HAIR & SCALP CARE

Salam People,

It came across my mind to share some hair products that I have been using as admittedly I have an oily and sensative scalp. If I wrongly selected a Shampoo....that is IT--small flakes will start to grow and my scalp start to feel itchy.

You just name it ALL the shampoo with dandruff control agent-ALL I've used it but still problem persists. Finally by chance I got to know about Lactacyd cleansing liquid.

Lactacyd is a cleansing liquid with milk extract. With a PH of 3.5 it helps to control the natural acidity of our skin. It can be used for face, body and also as a shampoo. It is also can be used for the most sensative skin including the skin of a NEWBORN baby!

I've used this when my scalp condition was bad at that point of time but it healed tremendously after few washes :-). can also be used as an intimate wash and it safer than an ordinary feminine hygiene wash as mentioned above it maintain our natural skin acidity. **Even doc recommended it too**

BTW, This is NOT LACTACYD FEMININE HYGIENE wash-this is a CLEANSING LIQUID (The stripes on the bottle is GREEN & BLUE-NOT blue & red.) Don't get mistaken ya! :D

I've recommended to a colleague of mine who had dry sensative scalp and it really works for him! :D

For now and mantainance-I'm currently using Body Shop Ginger Shampoo. Love it as it is natural and minimal hair loss compared to others ;-).

To know more about Body Shop Ginger Shampoo you may view -

Until to you again....Oh Ya! To ALL friends and acquintances who will be celebrating christmas....HO HO HO....MERRY CHRISTMAS! and be safe on the road.

Foundation Primer or some may called it as Under Base

Salam People,

How are you doing? Everybody must be very busy preparing for school re-open-shopping on school stuff, books, shoes, uniforms and etc. While others who is still young, single and vibrant-end of year means holidays? or time to clear off their leaves but still layparking with friends-outing, shopping, clubbing and etc :-)

Whatever your year end activities are-for ladies....make up is MUST! We want to LOOK GOOD aren't we? I would love to share some tips on make up, especially before you put on your foundation to make it stay and looking flawless.

Before I'm introduce to the world of professional make up artist-I do NOT know what is Foundation Primer or Underbase? For me previously - 2 simple steps for face make up - Foundation and powder :P before I put on my lipstick, blusher, eyeliner and some mascara.

Now-I am sharing the benefits and importance of why we have to use foundation primer or some may called it as underbase.

Foundation Primer (I called it) is a lightweight, creamy gel meant to be used prior to foundation, creating an invisible layer that acts as a buffer to outside elements. This helps to smoothen your foundation application and some foundation primer will assist to enhance your dull skin and indirectly your skin will glow and brighten up!

There are many foundation primer out there-most of the major cosmetics brand will carry at least 1 but most will carry more i.e MAC, Shu Uemura, Laura Mercier, RMK, Bobbi Brown and etc. Foundation primer comes in many colours and ranges i.e your skin tone & skin texture (skin tone-dull, dark - skin texture-oily, dry)

As for me I have tried most of the foundation primer (MOST but NOT ALL, still shopping around and if anyone has anything to share-feel free to share as I love gathering information and learn from others too) and I'm sharing the best so far I've used (This is my personal preference-some other make up artists may have their own preference too :D)

RMK - Polish base

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer MUA friends heard that make up forever foundation primer is GOOD too! Any comments? :-)

Until to ALL of you again....

There she is...ready to go! She chose our traditional kebaya to be different and definitely a billion dollar lady! ;-)

My thank you(s) to Hazlin and family for the warmth welcome and the trust. I'm so happy to know too that Hazlin is bouncing back again after her back illness and she is really looking forward to attend this dinner. Wishing her well and may Allah bless her with good health-Amin.
