Skin Care Products

Another mommy's post. Last night my family (including my parents and siblings) went to The Mall after we had our sungkai.

So I went to MISSHA to check out their lip gloss. I might be going to write about this soon, Insya Allah. I was asking about their new Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail products then the super nice lady told me that my face does not need this. "Your face is ok", she said. You only need to maintain she continued. I would suggest you to use Time Revolution First Treatment Essence to make your skin firm and moisturise. This lady reads my mind! I am looking for something for my face.

Recently, I tried Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream as recommended by my sister. She is currently using Vital Orange BB cream and BB Cleanser O2 too as she has more blemish than I am. I don't have problem with blemishes actually because it usually clears completely from my face in few weeks. So far, I'm liking this cream on my face. No more dry skin as Dear Husband put it.

Ok back to MISSHA. As I was saying, the nice SA was introducing to me the Time Revolution First Treatment Essence and Night Repair ampoule. She mentioned that the essence is similar to SK-II Facial Essence except for their lower price tags. She tested on my hand and yes, I like how it feels. She kindly gave me sample to try. I was sold! :DD

I really want to try this product except it's not in my budget for this month. Anyway if you would like to give this a try, they have a special set of Time Revolution First Treatment Essence 150 ml + 30ml and Night Repair 50ml + 10ml cost $185.90. We can also buy individually at $92.90 each. Looking at how little we need to apply to our face twice (morning and night) daily, I think a bottle of First Treatment Essence can last for 3-6 months. It's definitely a bargain right?

All this while, I only use cleanser facial wash daily. Before I used Nivea O2 but its so hard to get it so we changed to Hada Labo from Guardian. Btw, Hada Labo cleanses BB cream and make ups as effective as BB cleanser that my sister is using and its quarter the price she paid. I don't know why but lately I care about my skin more than usual.

Is it time for me to start using the Essence? Hmm.. So what do you use for your skin care products? Any other products you'd like to recommend?


  1. to tell you the truth. langsung inda ku paham what with the BB cream, blemish, essence, moisturizer and the list goes on and on and on hehe

    banar Ef, i use nothing on my face. banar pulang nada problem, tapi its dry.. especially Ramadhan ani. dehydrated. lols. any recommendation? aku karit pulang kan belanja untuk this stuff LOLs

    also, here you are!!!! hahaha! been wondering what happened to you 'mommyhood blog' sekali liat arah my 'Referrers' ada extrapetitemom. the bell rang when i read & super-impose the url to you hehe ;p

    1. haha I didn't understand it too at first. I had to ask my younger sister who know about this more than I do! :p

      BB cream is Blemish Balm cream. Like Skin79 its moisturizing, improve wrinkles, whitening, etc. More like a base before you put on make up (ie foundation) but this is more beneficial than foundation. And you can wear them without make up too! ;) Youtube ia! Byk tu org punya reviews..

      Aku pun karit to spend on these beauty products! Haha.. Yth selalu pakai facial wash saja but since ermm rajin kan jaga skin recently haha.. The good thing about this BB cream, if the bottle above (yg Snail) my sister-in-law cakap can last up to 6 months! Inda lah every month membeli hehe..

      I only bought smaller bottle cost $31.90. We'll see la how long this will last hehe.. I only use it if kan jln & rajin kan make up and on routine every night before sleep, if masa siang kita selalu ambil wudhu kan. So far, my skin improve and inda lgi dry banar :)

  2. btw, since you're still a SAHM atm.. why don't you buat Homemade Baby Food business and sell them online through here or FB. i think for career mommies out there yang care for what their babies makan, this idea will be an option for them to lessen the 'list' of stuff to worry.

    1. Btw, just so you know.. Since we love to watch Korean dramas :p Haha the actresses pakai these bb cream to get the natural "no makeup" look. You realise kan kalau liat the drama drg mcm nada pakai make up.. So yea this is what they use :)

      And about selling the baby food, Ive thought about it ganya belum pro masak bubur! Some babies like it smooth bnr and mcm Iqbal inda, he likes a bit lumpy since he started eating walaupun belum ada gigi. Haha

    2. iakah?? yes yes I like how the korean look in the dramas, natural looking ;p

      btw facial wash what do you recommend? been trying some once in a while and langsung inda ngam to my skin. makin karing ada pulang in most cases. and moisturizer too please~

      haha alum begigi sudah belabih mau lumpy foods ;p

    3. Apa saja you have tried before? I've recently use Hada Labo atu and it's seems okay for my skin. as for moisturizer, hmm I dont know what to recommend. *Sorry!* Try Skin79 atu, since your skin mcm my skin try the mini Snail. Im not sure abt the price though. :)

    4. talked to my sister and she told me NOT to use the cream during nighttime. Bcos mlm our pores open and the cream will block it. hmm.. I need to ask the SA if we can use the essence instead for mlm hehe..

    5. bwoh! handal jua your sister ani. banyak ia tau hehe. i can't remember apa saja I've tried before but I remember this one yg pakai green apple essence for facial wash. kancang and karing kulit ulihnya.

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.

1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.

Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
