Unboxing: Michael Todd True Organics ✿

Hello loves! ❤ This is going to be an unboxing post of this highly raved brand, Michael Todd True Organics! I waited for this parcel to reach me for over 6 months because of the lousy service of the person who's in charge of buying this for me. Pfft. At first I thought she was lying or it was a fraud. I tried to reach her and even asked for my money back but she never responded. Whatever it is, I'm just thankful that this parcel reached me! Next time I'm just going to purchase directly from the website. It's okay to pay a few extra charges. At least you're 100% sure it is not a scam. 

Michael Todd True Organics was built out of respect for quality craftsmanship, a love of things organic and most of all the desire to make caring for your skin an experience to look forward to. Our products are a combination of science and nature developed and made in the United States with certified organic ingredients, without added water and free of parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrance or artificial color. The result is an unsurpassed skin care experience that enhances and protects the skin for years to come. So you know just what you're getting, we state on each product the percentage of certified organically grown plants and fruits used and if it is vegan. Michael Todd has never participated in animal testing. 

Doesn't it remind you of Toy Story? Ahehe.

Carol Priest Damask Rose Series Skincare Review #p2

Hello loves!  Moving on to part 2 shall we? Haven't read part 1? Read it now, here! Hehe. So the next product is Carol Priest Damask Rose Toner. Now this product's surprisingly good! No wait, awesome!! At first I was hesitant to try because my doctor said I don't really need to use any toner because my skin is super (and the audience says, 'we know, we know, sensitive!') sensitive. But of course when someone told me I cannot do or try something I will surely do the exact opposite hehe who does that too? *virtual high five*

This toner is not like any other. And why did I say that? Because it removes all traces of makeup, dirt, impurities and dead cells tremendously and shockingly well! I was literally shocked by the result appeared on my cotton pad. Even when I'm not wearing makeup or anything, something still appears on the cotton pad. Amazing! Clinique 3 step toner pun tak macamtu tau :O

Damask Rose Toner (1 sachet, 3g) RM139 for 100ml
An exceptionally mild and hydrating toner to help restore moisture and improve skin texture. The damask rose species Rosa damascena has been carefully selected for its deep sweet tenacious rosy perfume and tonifying properties. For sensitive, dry and mature skin types.

Active Ingredients:
Distilled Water (Aqua), Rosa Damascena Flower Oil.

User guide:
Apply morning and night. Use it alone or after cleansing. Use it to freshen up at any time of day or whenever skin feels dry. Spray onto the face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Saturate a cotton pad with about 5ml of toner. Gently apply to a cleansed, damp face and neck. Can also be applied with a spritz atomiser. No need to towel dry.

Precaution: Not suitable for pregnant woman. 

Probably THE best toner I've ever tried, hands freaking down! Super gentle, doesn't irritate my skin at all, has a pleasant scent, removes absolutely everything off my face and lastly, moisturizing! In love with this toner!  

Expensive :/

Like I said, probably THE best toner ever! Looove everything about it! I would honestly consider in purchasing it in the near future

Carol Priest Damask Rose Series Skincare Review #p1

Hello loves!  Have you ever heard of the brand Carol Priest before? I know right, when you heard "Priest" you will be like "Oh my gloss, haram!" but fret not, its just their brand name honey! Honestly I never heard of this brand before but that's the fun part about being a beauty blogger, trying new things! That's my hobby too - discovering and trying new things! It brings so much joy *dancing* *dubdabdubdab* *techno* LOL. I received three 3 steps skincare from my favourite beauty website HiShop Malaysia: Rose & Almond Oil Cleansing Cream, Damask Rose Toner and Rosa Damascena Intensive Serum - Intensive and Organic. I will do the review one by one so that it won't be such a long post ;)

About Carol Priest
Carol Priest Natural Cosmetics began in 1991 as a small New Zealand family company, specializing in the formulation, manufacture and marketing of herbal skin care products. To ensure they remain fresh and retain their beneficial properties each product is hand prepared in small batches. This small scale production means they can be flexible and innovative, offering the latest developments in natural skin care as they become available. 

Each product contains a unique and simple blend of proven botanicals. No mineral oils are used. Instead, oils and emulsifiers extracted from plants act as carriers for the principal ingredients. All colours are derived from natural sources. Synthetic fragrances, responsible for most allergic skin reactions, have been replaced with the subtle, natural fragrances of unadulterated essential oils. It is this careful selection of the purest ingredients that ensures a natural and professional range of skincare products, unrivalled for freshness, quality and impressive results.

Rose & Almond Oil Cleansing Cream (1 sachet 3g) RM75 for 15g | RM129 for 50g 
A traditional rose, almond oil and beeswax water-rinseable cleanser. It effectively and gently emulsifies lipstick, eye, face and neck make-up and impurities. Contains pure essential oil of rose centifolia, which has soothing and cooling qualities, promoting a clear complexion. For normal and combination skin types. 

Active Ingredients:
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Oil.

User guide:
To benefit fully from any further care your skin must first be clean and free from all traces of impurities. Make a warm compress using a clean wash cloth. and apply firmly to the face and neck areas for a few minutes. This soaking helps the aromatic essential oils and plant oils dissolve and soften skin waste. Apply a small quantity of cleanser to your face and neck and massage using small circular motions with enough water to produce a creamy lather. Remove the emulsion using a warm damp wash cloth. Rinse the last traces by splashing warm water over your face and neck. Finish with a cold compress. No need to towel dry. For very dry skin remove all traces of make-up and impurities with the Relaxing Facial and Body Massage Oil. Rinse. 

Precaution: Not suitable for pregnant woman.

Never tried cleanser in a cream form before and I liked it! Its very gentle, would recommend it to those with sensitive skin. It cleans my face well and it lathers up pretty well too. Not really that hard to work with as the texture is smooth and creamy, and easy to blend!

The cream is super thick so it's kind of hard to rinse it off your face. I have to rinse my face with warm water a couple of times! Such a hard work!
Overall, I really like this cream cleanser. It cleans my face well and its super gentle to my sensitive skin!

Sleek i-Divine Ultra Matte V1 Palette Review

Hello loves! Remember my last post about Sleek Primer Palette? If you don't you can read it here! Well that day I bought two Sleek's Eye Shadow Palettes. The other one is this i-Divine Ultra Matte Volume 1. There's Volume 1 and 2 but Volume 1 is more colourful. Like I said last time, I'm sort of tired of always purchasing neutral shadows (eventho I recently bought Naked Palette) so I wanted something colourful in my collection. So again, it was a 30% flash sale for 3 hours and you know I just gotta join :p

If it’s bold and brilliant brights you’re after then this palette is for you. These super creamy and highly pigmented mineral based eye shadows are incredibly smooth in texture, making them easily blendable and perfect for contouring the eyes. The classic matte black is also ideal for lining your upper lid, while the vibrant shades add a daring pop of colour to eyes. 

Price: RM44.00

Likes: Crazy pigmented, the colours are bright and lovely, glides on smoothly, matte! always a plus :D, and so easy to work with! ❤ I would totally recommend this palette to anyone who is searching for a cheap yet high-quality vibrant colours that is compact and travel-friendly. You will not be disappointed with the colour pay off, I promise! I wore this palette to the Luau Party few days ago if you happened to see me! hehe

Dislikes: None!
