Hello I'm back from my cave. Well, kinda.

Just wanna let my fellow readers know that I'm uhh.. still alive. Well it's been over a month since my last blog post. My new record but #notproud. This is so annoying, dead blogs I mean.

Sooo, I just came back from my cave in Antarctica. No, seriously, can you imagine - it's been so long since I last start-up my personal computer that it's now full of dust and new updates? Hahahahahahaha. Like using a grandpa OS.

Also, 233 unread emails. Uhh, I can't even.

Too much unnecessary subscribed mails and missed out a number or media mails. Sorry PRs, I did not ignore your emails on purpose. I've created a new email for good - Couldn't be bothered to delete emails one by one. :(

I've came to a point in life where I figured out that complaining about not-enough-time is really pointless. Sometimes, we just gotta make time for the things we enjoy doing, man. I cannot afford to waste time on things that aren't worth it anymore.

Anyway, blogging mojo need a release. I have so much to share! Just checked my blog stats, there's still people reading my blog. #impathetic (T________T) I don't know to feel happy or guilty, but I'm thankful, really.

Also, it's my favourite month! I'm so happy I'm turning 23! There's this overwhelming joy in me knowing that I'm progressing well in life, bench-marking some highschool/uni friends around me HAHAHAHAAHAHHAHAA I'm not sorry if you feel offended.  So here's a happy picture of me (while I'm processing the rest for my upcoming blog-posts) taken when I was in Osaka, Japan last few weeks. Lots of pictures to filter, updates soon!

Okay, till next time. Cos I need my 8-hour sleep. *giggles*

Shine from every angle with #mytsubaki

To be honest, I'm not a person who takes care of my hair very well. I don't go for hair treatments consistently, I don't use much hair products, and I don't buy high-end shampoos. 

But I have to admit, I did a lot of fun things with my hair, which are all very damaging. My hair was dyed a lot of times, expose to heat all the time, blow dried it every morning, temporary perms and etc etc. And after all these while, I don't use conditioner or any hair mask.

SUPER CRAZY DRY UGLY HAIR with black roots

It came to my realization that this has to be stopped! Why I can spend so much on skincare and makeup but not my hair? Actually all I need to do is to take action to achieve a goal, instead of wishing about it. 

Ok quick fun fact here. #DIDYOUKNOW that the loss of hair shininess is due to UV? The loss of melanin created holes that causes irregular reflection and loss of shine on hair!

So recently I've decided to invest more on my hair (in a cost-effective way). My hair is no longer blonde lol! Think I started to fall in love with black. Yeap, Some of the things I've done for the past 3 months included :

1. Dyed my hair back to black. 
2. Always use conditioner and hair mask(treatment) after shampoo.
3. Wash hair on alternate days (this one, a bit hard la sometimes)
4. Better to use cold water to wash hair (as long as water's not too hot)
5. After washing hair, better to let it dry naturally than blow dry. (this one also a bit hard)

Anyway, who doesn't want healthy hair that shines from every angle right? All it take is just to follow the simple 3-step regimen : Shampoo, condition, and treat!

Another thing to consider is to use products that contain good ingredients for the hair. This is called choosing premium products for your hair. It doesn't necessarily has to be overly expensive. :)


Just like this new gem I found, thanks to TSUBAKI Malaysia, I get to have soft and shiny hair from every angle again! 

If you haven already know, TSUBAKI is a premium hair care product made in Japan, and it promises shine from inside out. That's because of it's main ingredient - Camellia oil which has been responsible for the classic, legendary beauty of Japanese hair for centuries in Japan. 

TSUBAKI offers a wide range of product which includes : 

1. Shining (for Normal & dull hair)
2. Damage care (for Dry & damage hair)
3. Head Spa (for Scalp care)

These red ones that I have with me are the SHINING range. I have to say, I super love it's packaging! Doesn't it look like a perfect gift for your loved ones too? Red symbolizes romantic love okay!lol. Okay, jokes aside, the packaging really does look premium. 

They are all suitable for daily use. You can find them easily in your nearest supermarkets.  



Hair mask (Treatment)

Notice how you have to open it from bottom? Super creative packaging isn't it.

This is how the mask's texture look like.

The fragrance? It is decent and fresh, and I like it that way. Because I don't like shampoo that smell too sweet. Oh, and why I love it most? Because it promises shine from inside out. (Note : some shampoo only make your hair shine on the outside.)

Internal Shininess promised, thanks to Melanin Reparative Ingredients like Arginine. (Arginine repairs melanin hole to allow light to penetrate hair shaft and to be reflected evenly, resulting in a lustrous, glorious hair.)

External Shininess promised, thank to Camellia Oil which comes with shine sensor mechanism.

I tried it, and needless to say, it's really very effective. I let my hair dry naturally after showering at the end of the day, minimizing the heat for my hair, remember!

When it comes to hair mask, I will always massage my hair many many times, and leave it on for about 5 minutes. Cos that's what my previous hairstylist told me! Like that only the hair can absorb the wonderful ingredients. 


I'm still using TSUBAKI now and I can't wait to see my hair's continuous improvement!

Try it and let me know the results! 

Psst, they all come in super affordable prices :
Tsubaki Shining Shampoo 550ml (RM 38.90)
Tsubaki Shining Conditioner 550ml (RM 38.90)
Tsubaki Shining Shampoo 220ml (RM 18.90)
Tsubaki Shining Conditioner 220ml (RM 18.90)
Tsubaki Shining Hair Mask (Rm 44.90)

Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating & Brightening Foaming Cleansers

Hello bunnies! Long taim no see. *send lots of love and heart to your screen*

Skincare topic today k? winkwink

If you don't know yet, I'm quite a big fan of Neutrogena. My favourite is the HydroBoost series, specifically the HydroBoost Water Gel (which is not in the picture because I've yet to stock up T__T )

ANYWAYYYY that's not the point of today's post. I have greater news to share! *Drumrolls* Did anyone know yet? 

Neutrogena launched two amazing new products! 

Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser and Deep Clean Brightening Foaming Cleanser 

Look, that's a duo benefit for a healthy radiant skin. Now it is much easier to have BRIGHT and HYDRATED skin at the same time, don't you think?

Clinically tested to be able to achieve 99% deep clean effect and 2X more power in brightening and hydrating. 

Not really the most glam photo for this one but anyway first impression, I personally like how the cleanser's creamy lather reflects the colour of the packaging. So beautiful isn't it! 

First off, let's look at Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating Foaming Cleanser. 

It claims that it's enriched with water mineral complex, hence the 2X moisture boost which helps in long lasting oil control. Perfect for me who have oily skin! I can imagine the creamy lather goes deep down into my face pores to help dissolve dirt, oil, and makeup! 

See, blueish creamy lather. So dreamy! Ok so I tried it and I love it because after washing my face, my skin don't feel tingly and dry at all. I know how usually foam cleanser make skin feel really tight but this one really promises hydration. Skin is clean but still boink boink. *giggles*

After I rinse my face with water, instantly felt like..... 

Yeap. Ok. 


So, if you know me long enough, you'll know I'm crazy about whitening products too. Yes please, anything that can make me fairer. Best if it's instant. Hahaha!

I also love pink. So this Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening Foaming Cleanser's packaging actually gave me quite a good first impression.

It claims to have 2X brightening power for cleaner, fairer, and more radiant skin with every wash. Keyword : WITH EVERY WASH. Wow! And the rich creamy lather also helps removes dirt and skin dulling residue of make-up, sun-block and BB creams. Well I wear BB cream/makeup almost everyday, definitely need this. 

Tried it on my hand, and yeap, it does work wonder. 

Disclaimer : This experiment's pictures were taken with the same camera setting, and no editing other than the numbering and my watermark. :D

See see, it really did get brighter isn't it? 


This Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening and Hydrating foaming cleanser is available at all Guardian and Watsons store at only RM 20.90 each. 

Try it and let me know how it works for you! :D
