Review: St. Ives Fresh Skin Moisturising Olive Scrub

When I told my best friend that my concern was my visible blackheads around my nose, she told me to scrub my face. I have not use any scrub for a long time so I googled for a good scrub and found out about St. Ives Apricot Scrub. However, I could not find it here but I saw St. Ives Fresh Skin Moisturising Olive Scrub at Hua Ho Manggis cost $8.10 and bought it anyway :P

The best thing about this scrub is that it is formulated without parabens and phthalates. Awesome! The texture of this scrub is creamy with big granules (as in you can feel the little particles). Some might feel its a little harsh on their skin but I'm ok with it. I only put about 1cm at the tip of my finger then rub it onto the center of my face outwards for a few minutes and then rinse with water.

I have been using this scrub for two months now, at least twice a week or more because I usually use it when Im having my shower. I know that scrubs are usually to be use two to three times a week depending on your skin as it could be a little bit drying. I also know that some gentle scrub can be use daily. As for mine, it is too moisturising that I can actually use it daily or to remove my make up. So far, I can see that my blackheads is less visible now. Wee! :D

Will I repurchase this again? Maybe no. This is a good product but I want to try other scrub before sticking to the same one. :P


  1. I never really try out any St Ives' products, I might try next time I'm running out of scrubs, which is impossible for the next 4-5 months, hee.

    1. That's so true! Scrubs took a long time to finish. I've used mine for 2 months and it hasnt reach even half of the tube! --'

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…
