SimplySiti Skincare review!

Hello loves!  So finally today I'm going to talk about how SimplySiti saved me from the burning feeling of my sweats and how it made my skin returned to its normal condition. You can read this entry for more info. But mind you that right now my skin is not in its normal condition because of some stuff but I'm still using SimplySiti to make my skin return to normal. 
So at first I was a bit confused on which range to buy because as you know, the Clear Solution is for acne-prone skin while the New Age is for dry to dry combination skin. I wanted both since my skin is really dry at that time but I went ahead and bought the Clear Solution instead. All of my acne came back since I stopped using Azie Kosmetick (You can click the link above, I explained everything about Azie) so I was really excited to try this range. I bought the whole set except for the mask and scrub. I love the toner because it has an icy-feeling to it which is so refreshing! So I tried it for a month or two but sadly I see no results. At all! So I switched back to Azie because my mom forced me to and my skin went sensitive again and it brought along the burning feeling again! Sedih sampai nak mati :'( The burning feeling hurt a lot!
My skin was really really dry and there was redness all over, it was horrible. So I bought the New Age cleanser and toner which was on a pack deal at the time and Dermagic Beauty Moisturizer  The New Age range comes with its own moisturizer but the beauty moisturizer caught my eyes a lot more and I'm glad I picked that up because that moisturizer is the bomb diggity yo! It definitely does what it claims! It keeps my face moisturized as well as making my face looking a little bit brighter. So much love for that product! So I tried the whole thing for about a month and o m g my skin condition improved so much! There was no more redness around my face, my skin was not dry and tight, it was no longer sensitive and my sweat doesn't burn my skin anymore! That's my favourite part! Again, I don't know how that's even possible *giggles* but I'm just glad that it doesn't burn my skin anymore. Alhamdulillah!  :)

But that doesn't stop there. The New Age doesn't only hydrate my skin but also after two months of using it I noticed that my acne has decreased I usually have a lot of breakouts at one go but that time there was just around 3-5 breakouts which was amazing! I really didn't expect that the New Age can slowly cure my acne I mean I always thought that only products that are made to cure acne can only cure acne, if you know what I mean. I'm really surprised. But you know, I think I heard somewhere that when our face is really dry, our skin will produce its own oil to keep our face moisturized and oily as you know, lead to ACNE. I don't know if what I'm saying is true but I think I heard it somewhere. If its true then by using something moisturizing it will prevent your skin from producing its own oil. Hence, slowly cure your acne! But honestly, the New Age does work. Until now, I only have just 2-3 breakouts here and there but if Aunt Flow is in town then there will definitely be a lot more than that :o 

Seriously, if you're using the Clear Solution and you see no difference then maybe you should consider trying the New Age range and see how it goes. But if you have and it doesn't work for you then just keep in mind that its all about trial and error. Doesn't mean that if it works for me it will work for you too. You should try different products in order to find the right one. Don't be cheap ladies! Skincare is the most important thing ever. Note that! But the problem is now I don't know how to cure/fade away my super ugly scars! Its so annoying! I have so little acne but so many scars! And it look just like acne! If you see me without make up you will think that I have a lot of acne on my face but IT IS NOT ACNE D: I swear its not acne D: Please, if you have any tips and tricks on how to make my scars go away then please please oh please share it with me! I tried from the Clear Solution Scar Eraser to Hiruscar and even Dermatix but nothing is working :'( My friends are currently using Mederma and I can see that their scars are slowly fading away but I don't know, maybe I should try that but if you have something better like pills, collagen, traditional way or maybe facial treatment then please let me know! I really want to know :( REALLY WANT TO KNOW!!!!!!!!
Anyway, back to the topic, I'm really glad that I found SimplySiti especially the New Age range!  I wouldn't say that it changed my life like how Azie did but its somewhere around there :B And I'm so glad that my acne is slowly decreasing! Just have to find something to fade away my scars then I will be the happiest kid on earth! Can't wait to have a clear skin like before!  Wish me luck :* 

Oh and I always forgot! You can also purchase SimplySiti online if you're the type who likes to sit at home and shop like me hehe. They are doing a deal right now where you have to sign up before June 30th and get:

Berkesan ke Cathy Doll L-Glutathione Magic Cream?

Nak tahu? Jom baca! Tak nak baca? Tengok video! Heheheheasdfghjkl. 

Hi loves! So today I have an interesting product that I want to share to the world. I've been trying this product out for two months now. What product? Well read the title! It's the Cathy Doll L-Glutathione Magic Cream! 
Whaaaaaat? What the heck is that? Well honey, this is a MAGIC CREAM! So how is it magic? I don't know :p But I do know that it whitens up my hand in just two days! But actually, the cream works because of the Glutathione. If you constantly take or in this case apply glutathione all over your body, your skin will become whiter and brighter. If you apply it on your face, it will lightens up your scars, treat your existing pimples, and you will look 5-10x younger than your age! Interesting right? It works to clear the body of free radicals and toxins that can lead to serious skin problems. Eg: Hyperpigmentation, melasma and sun spots. It also makes your skin stay supple, smooth, fresh and radiant, nourishes your skin and enhance healing of wounds. Glutathione is an antioxidant made from Cysteine, Glutamic and Glycine (three kinds of Amino Acid) that's normally produce by our body to combat air pollution, chemicals, food and drinks, and other things that can ruin our body cells. OMG :O
This is a whitening and pore tightening cream. It has UV A/B/C protection as well as SPF130 PA+++ (sorry in the video I said SPF 20-40 lol). It's a really cool product because you don't have to wear two different products at once, ie: Whitening cream and sunblock. Just wear this cream and you are good to go! This cream is waterproof and the texture is really thick so it's a bit hard to remove it especially if you're going to take your Wudu'. I normally wash my hand with a shower gel for 2-3x and sometimes I would just scrub my hand to make sure that it is fully gone. But you can also use cleansing wipes to remove it if you're out and about. 
I've only tested this cream on my left hand so far and my left hand is much more whiter than before even without applying the cream! I'm so happy! At first I was a bit skeptical because there are a lot of korean products/whitening products out there but after seeing some reviews, I decided to try it myself. And I'm glad I did! Like I said I've been trying it out for two months now and I'm really pleased with the result! And I know you can put it on your face too but I don't want to take the challenge haha mostly because well you know, my skin is pretty bad (with the rashes, dryness, acne and all) so I don't want to take the risk. Though I really do want to see if this cream will make my scars go away but nahh I would rather just have them on my face then risking it. So this is my hands:
Yay whiter looking hand! Hehe can't wait to use it on my right hand and be whiter whiter whiter! :p Interested in buying it? Check this Facebook! Total price is rm30 including postage (rm5 postage) which is by far the cheapest price (at least to me)! But if you found any site that's selling it for a cheaper price then definitely let me know alright! And lastly, don't forget to watch my video if you want to see a better look at my hands before and after. Thank you!   

P/s: How do you like my new font? Or the previous one is better?

Till then.

My new found love: Essense Cosmetics!

Hello loves  How are you guys doing? G-g-gooood? You see those three girls up there? Aren't they pretty? I admire the right one, I think she's the prettiest! What do you guys think? :B You know, I can't believe that all this while I've been ignoring this superbly amazing brand, Essense! I mean, it's really amazing! I've came across this brand at Watson probably like a gazillion times and not once have I ever think to like, buy them. So stupid of me! Thank god I finally came to my senses and bought a few things. Hehe. The products are unbelievably cheap! But that doesn't mean that the products are crap, no sir. The price range is more or less the same as the Silky Girl but I would probably buy a lot more of the Essense products just because the products are more eye catching and maybe (in my opinion) 5x better than Silky Girl. I've tried Silky Girl before and guuuuurl, I. AM. NOT. IMPRESS *snap. It's really affordable and the packaging is sooooo cute! Have you seen the mascaras? Adohrable 

So this is the things that I managed to get my dirty hands on. Can only buy three at that time because I was short on money :( but I will definitely come back for more! Hoho. So the first thing that I bought was the Blush brush (rm13.90). I always wanted a new blush brush because I've been using the old one for years so its a pretty good time to invest in a new brush. A new cheap brush! A new PINK cheap brush! Hahaha so obsessed with the colour! So pretty am I right? The brush is thin and not so fluffy looking but its soft! And the size is just nice if I want to carry it in my bag or something. 

The second thing is the Stage Eyeshadow and Concealer Base (rm13.90). Same price with the brush. Now, this eyeshadow base might just be my favourite one. Want to know why? Because it works just as great as the high end ones! Just as great as the Benefit Stay Don't Stray to be exact. I did some comparison between the two - applied one on my right eye and one on the other, but before that I want to tell you that I have a very oily eyelids (yes, everything about me is oily) and surprisingly, I see no difference. At all. My eyeshadow doesn't crease, it last longer and the colours appear vibrant on both eyes. I mean of course it does its Benefit but Essense? Now, that's just amazing! Stay Don't Stray costs around rm100 and I  stage only going to cost you rm13.90 and it works just as great thats just o m g I'm getting excited like;
Hahahahaha! And the last thing that bought and this is my favourite which is the Lip Liner (rm4.90). The lip liner is the jackpot! I mean really! Hehe at least for me :p Its so cheap, not that short (I hate those brands who sells short lip liners for an expensive price) and its crazy pigmented! The other day I bought NYX Retractable Lip Liner for idk maybe rm12+ or was it rm19+? I can't remember but that lip liner is a piece of crap. It doesn't glide on smoothly and the product itself is not smooth. I tried to line my whole lips with it to see how it goes and nope, not buying it again. Thats why I'm so excited with Essense Lip Liner! So pigmented, so smooth, its just ah-mah-zing! I'm so excited to try other products from Essense! I'm thinking of trying their blush, concealer and mascara next time around. Or maybe next Tuesday? HAHA!

But I didn't stop there! The reason why I was short on money because I bought some other things. I bought the Everyday Minerals brushes (11 pieces for rm85) from LivingSocial, Olay Moisturizing Lotion (rm34.90) and Olay Day Cream SPF 15 (rm29.90). Hihi. It was on sale and I needed a new moisturizer so why not? :P This is my first time using Olay so I will totally make a review on it. Probably about two months from now. Hehe so excited to try! And for the brush, its so so so so so soft! Can't believe how soft it is! I'm always a little worried when it comes to buying brushes online because we can't feel how soft it is so I'm totally amazed on how soft these brushes are! If you see the deal on LivingSocial then go buy it. Worth your money!

Till then.

My experience and review with Azie Kosmetik [Before and After]

I have an acne-prone skin which unfortunately, runs in the family. But sadly, my acne came a little bit too late than the rest of my siblings. They all had and have them around Form 1 while mine came around Form 4. And let me tell you, it was like someone had cut the wrong wire somewhere around my body and I woke up one day with a face full of acne. It was bad! My skin surface was in a really bad shape. It was (more or less) like the surface of the moon. And my face went all red! It was really bad I tell you. I had to bear with those bad acne for almost a year! I wasn't really into skincare and all that sorts at the time and the only cleanser that I used was Clearasil Face Scrub. It didn't really do much. Then I tried Oxy. I bought everything from Oxy but it didn't do that much either. Then around Form 5, my skin was sort of back to normal. I mean, there was still a lot of acne but it wasn't as bad as before and my skin's surface wasn't like the moon anymore LOL. But it was still bad.. Then after school was over I started using Clinique's 3 step. My skin was doing pretty good for the first 3-4 months but then it just stayed the same. But I still use it whenever my skin is feeling dry. So then I changed to the Blemish range but sadly (Again? I know..), it does pretty much nothing to my skin :(

After I've found Groupon, I bought a voucher at the New York Skin Solution. I was a bit naive and was too excited because of the cheap price! LOL. Went for a facial there and they scanned my skin and gave me a consultation. They said that my skin's really sensitive. They talked me into buying their skincare and said that they're going to give me another free facial if I buy them. RM500 for a set of four + a free facial. I was excited so I bought the skincare BUT after I've done the free facial, they try to talk me into buying a full package for RM3k. I was like "WOI GILA?!" Haha. They pushed me into buying the package but I strongly said no. Then they said something that made me regret buying the skincare. They said that the skincare does nothing but reducing the redness on my skin and that it only heal the surface, not the inside of the skin. WHAAAAAAAAAAT? If I knew that from the start, I wouldn't have bought it in the first place -.- 

Anyway, long story short, during Aidilfitri last year, my cousin introduced me to Azie Kosmetik. She has an acne-prone skin too but after using Azie, all of her acne disappeared and her face became whiter! My other cousin has also been using it too so I figured, why not? I want a clear skin too! I went to the Anggerik Boutique at Kompleks PKNS Shah Alam and bought the full set. Went through a peeling process for about a week and it made my skin really dry and flaky. It was horrible but then it's all good! Hehe. Azie Kosmetik has a really complicated skincare process. There's 10 products all together for day and night. There's two cleanser, two toners, moisture gel for in between toners, three night creams, daydream and sunblock. I normally spent a good 10-15 minutes to apply everything (well mostly because I'm a slow mover :p). After awhile I noticed that my skin had gotten better and my scars seem to fade away which was really exciting! Even my friends noticed that my skin had gotten better and whiter. For the first time after Form 4, I had only around 6-7 zits around my face which was ah-meh-zing! 

But after 7 months of using Azie Kosmetik, my skin became super duper sensitive to the point where I can't even bear my own sweats! I'm not really into sports but about three months ago, I played badminton for a few times and my sweats just burnt the hell out of my skin! I don't know if that's even possible but it did! My whole face went really red because of the burning and it hurt so bad! I tried applying different brand of moisturizer but the burning feeling won't go away. It happened every time I sweat. So I switched to SimplySiti for awhile and surprisingly, my skin condition improved! Like a lot! It wasn't that sensitive anymore, it wasn't dry and my sweats didn't burn my skin! But the problem was, my acne and my acne scars came back! Well it did came back when I stop facial but this time, it came back with its own entourage! My goodness! My mom told me to switch back to Azie so I did and again, my skin became super duper sensitive! And on top of that, the burning feeling came back again too! It was horrible!! So now I'm left with this horrible face just like back in High School :( So I went back to using SimplySiti (which I will do another entry on it) and now my skin is perfectly fine (except for the rashes) and it seems like my acne has slowly decreasing in number but my scars haven't fade away even a bit! I'm so frustrated but I'm just thankful that my skin is back to not being super duper sensitive and shiz. I mean I can still live with scars because there's always foundation to cover it up but a super duper sensitive skin? No thank you. 

To those who are planning on trying Azie Kosmetik, you might need to think twice on that. Yes, you will feel so darn good when your skin is all cleared up but are you willing to undergo those painful burning feeling, super dry skin, flakiness, tightness and ridiculous looking redness all over your face? And are you willing to go outside and let the world see your bad skin condition? You know, I've been there and let me just say that I came home everyday crying so darn hard inside of my heart. I live with my friends and I'm embarrass to cry in front of them so I just cry so hard either inside of my heart or in the shower. Sometimes I even cry whenever I see my face in the mirror. And I'm even crying right now. Thats just how bad my skin was so I don't want it to happen to any of you. But if you've tried it and it works, like still works then I'm so envy for you! But I've encountered a few people and the same thing happened to them too. But the choice is all yours. It was a great product when it worked but haih, what a shame. WHAT. A. SHAME.

So this is my face before and after with and without make-up. But again, my skin is not like the after picture anymore. Scroll done and you will see my current face. What a shame, I know but enjoy! (Click it to compare)

Till then.

Everyday foundation routine using Bio Rich Series/Review

Have you ever heard of Bio.Rich Series N-hance Beauty Cream (with SPF 25)? I know a lot of people don't. But I'm here to introduce you to this awesome BB cream/Day cream/Sun block. Yes, its 3 in 1! Cool huh? I bought this product at a boutique (and also a spa) called Anggerik Boutique at Kompleks PKNS Shah Alam. Came there to buy Azie Kosmetik sunblock but the lady introduced me to this product instead. She said that it works better. So I gave it a try and I loved it! And this is my second cream already hihi.
This is the texture of the cream. Its a bit creamy and a bit liquidy (lol) at the same time. It comes in one colour and one colour fits all skin tones. I tried it on my friend before and this cream came off a little fair on her skin but it sank to her natural skin colour after awhile. Its just like the Skin79 BB cream. It has a light to medium coverage and its suitable for all skin types. It has more coverage than the Skin79. For those with oily skin like me, I suggest you pair it with a good powder because it can get a little bit sticky on your face and it will make your skin look all shiny and shizz. For an extra coverage, pair it with MAC Skinfinish natural. That is what I use!
So this is my hideous face before and after using this amazing BB cream. Well, I won't call it THAAAAT amazing but its my favourite BB cream since its a day cream and a sunblock all in one! It gives a flawless effect to your face and it does covers up most of my imperfections including my rashes too! I mean for a BB cream, that's amazing! Though it's not the best BB cream but for the prize, W.O.W! There was this one time my Indian friend asked me what product am I using and she said that it looked good on my face :> Hehe. I tried searching the product online but I couldn't find one. And I only know one place that sells this and its the boutique that I mentioned above. So if any of you wanna try this product then let me know and I would love to buy it for you (on your behalf lah kan, not for free :p) and send it to you. Tu pun if you want to try lah because I really don't know where to buy this product other than the boutique so.. Hm.

I made a video using this BB cream and you can go watch it if you want. I use this BB cream almost everyday and I tend to grab this even more than my other foundations because its very light and it gives pretty much the same coverage. It doesn't make me feel like I have a lot of things going on, on my face and that's always a plus! Anyway, this is the products that I used in the video and of course, tak sah kalau tak ada gambar gedik :p kuikui.

And this is my video, hope you guys enjoy!
Till then.
