Scent: Tea tree
Nett Wt: 500ml
I first got to know about BioValley from reading blogs. I thought, natural yo - good choice! It was readily available in Tesco, and selected Guardians too. Really, at RM17.90 for 500ml? Such a deal.
I'm really happy with this shampoo, it clears those nasty white flakes without frying up my locks. Unfortunately, I get those unwelcomed dandies whenever I'm in immense stress. And my job is mostly stressful, le sigh again!
Although without SLS, it foams just as well. I like the crisp tea tree scent, smells clean :) This bottle lasts me months, as I don't use it daily.
... because I couldn't find this in the market anymore *sobs*
Not in Guardian.
Not in Tesco.
Not in any of the toiletries aisles of any malls.
I'm going to miss this after the last 15% bids farewell. *pouts*
Colour: Very light beige
Scent: Delicious cocoa!

Whenever I plan for a holiday I always hope for a hotel bathroom with a tub. I love a hot relaxing soak after a day of endless walking.
I usually come back with aching feet and sore back from extreme shopping lol. A hot soak would just melt the tension away..
I bought a couple of different variant from Daiso sometime ago.. and now that I'm in KL for a short trip; it is about time to try them out.
Tonight - Wild Rose. Pour the sachet into running water. I find one sachet didn't do much in a tub of water so I used 2. Ooh.. bright pink water. Smells floral... not exactly rose but nice though.
I soaked for about 20mins with a face mask on and after that find some slippery feel on my skin. And the dry skin on my heels started to peel off; revealing soft skin. Leaves a mild lingering sweet scent after. Love it!
A pack of 3 sachets costs RM5 and I am looking forward to try another tomorrow :)
Xmas is a month away, but I couldn't resist this treat. Not when it can be mine for RM 33 :)
I'm particularly interested in the Evening Primrose Eye Cream. 10ml is almost full size and totally worth it.
The other 4 x 20ml are:
- Pomegranate White Tea Facial Cleanser
- Pomegranate Scrub
- Pomegranate Mask
- Pomegranate Cream-Gel
I skipped a lot of workout as all I wanted was to lie down and sleep. Went to doctors and they have no idea what was causing this tiredness :S
Needless to say, I have also been abandoning my skincare routine. The most diligent of me was to wash my face at the end of each day. On most days, I skip serums and cream... and; sunscreen too (!!!!) I know, *screams*
Its amazing that after months of abandonment, my skin did not turn 30 years older. Signs of tiredness yes, but everything else remains pretty much the same. Most probably due to healthy food intake..
Anyway, during my down times, I have been reading up alot on articles related to health. I find below quite interesting, and do-able. For me; at a slow pace.
Next rub the face, the eyes, the forehead with your fingers and breathe fast ten times. By this exercise the face will start glowing with an attraction.
After this rub the skin of the whole face, starting from the chin to the fore-head. Keep breathing deeply. By this exercise the wrinkles on the face shall vanish and it shall acquire a healthy look.
Repeat this exercise three times.
FOR PROMINENT; WELL SHAPED BREASTS
After you are able to perform the second exercise as well, try to bend forward so as to touch the floor with the palms of your hands.
The feet should remain firmly on the ground. Then come back to the starting position and turn to your right. Repeat ten times.
Your thighs should be parallel to the ground and the back should be erect. Try to remain in this position for 3 minutes. This posture is similar to "Horse Trance" which is also practised by the martial arts experts.
Colour: Very light pink
Scent: Mild powdery
Nett Wt: 150ml
Price: definitely below RM20
Moisturises - yes too. Didn't feel dry or tight.
Gives nutrition to skin - hmmm I don't know. Is cleansing cream supposed to nourish??
Hmm again all description is in Korean..
Foxy Frangipani Says:
Scent: Really like aloe!
Price: Less than RM20 (I always lookout for items at similar price range)
Texture: White, yoghurt like cream
..and similar to the Avocado Cleansing Cream, I bought this
because of its fresh scent! I love green juice by the way, and anything similar gives me the thought of being healthy (weird I know).
I used this together with the cleansing cream, and these quickly became my favourite combo. I did mention that the cleansing cream does not leave behind a film on my skin. However I have a habit of double cleansing in the evening.
This is very easy to work up a lather, best used with a washing net (I read somewhere it isn't a good idea to directly slather the cleanser onto skin)! When it is really fluffy in foam, its such a joy to use. When thoroughly rinsed off, it left my skin feeling really clean, but not tight.
Lasted me a couple of months and I thought I've thoroughly squeezed it out. But when I cut the tube up, I still have about a week or so usage.
What is not to love? :)
All description is in Korean, hmm but I remember the sales assistant told in its very moisturising.
Foxy Frangipani Says:
Scent: Like fresh green juice
Price: Less than RM20
Texture: White, cream
I bought this because I was in a Baviphat store and couldn't make up my mind on what to get. Also I fell in love with the fresh scent. It reminds me of avocado juice I had in one of the Vietnamese restaurant in KL.
Great decision actually. Because I looked forward to using this each evening.
Yep, am very attracted to the avocado smell. But also because it cleanses well. BB cream, foundations melt when I massage this on, lightly. The cream texture is quite light and it emulsifies ok. No thin film and my face felt ok after rinsing, not tight. I guess it really does moisturize and nourish.
The Body Shop Says:
This effective daily hand cream cares for nails as well as hands and contains two manicurist’s essentials: sweet almond oil and panthenol. Moisturizing Conditions nails Sweet almond scent
How to Use:
Squeeze onto palms and massage into hands and nails as often as required. This is step three of the Almond hand care regime: a complete cleanse, target, moisturise and treat range.
Foxy Frangipani Says:
Scent: Mildly sweet
Price: This was a gift
Texture: White, cream
This was a surprise gift from a friend at work. He just knew what to get for a lady! Hehe. This 30ml tube last about 4 months - because I alternate with my Crabtree hand cream too.
I like that it is non sticky. I wash my hand like 8 times a day at work, and must massage cream on after each wash. Does not make me icky about using the keyboard after the cream. Hands are comfy with this cream too, it does keep dryness at bay. Feels supple.
Now the thing with the scent.. it is not bad, but its not my favourite scent. Smells sweet, if anymore would appear plasticky.. like super sweet vanilla.
The packaging in foil makes it easier for me to use all of the product. Simply roll it with a pen, no wastage! :)

The Husband recently was in Jakarta for a couple of days, for work. Guess what? I gave him an additional task - shopping list! :P
I spent quite some time to find out whats hot in Indonesia.. and funny, when I did that last year, I couldn't seem to find any (maybe wrong keyword). This time round, I found many Indonesian blogs!
I gave The Husband quite a long list, but unfortunately the outlet he went to did not have all the stuffs I want..(ahh I missed some of the masks by Martha Tilaar)
Anyway, he came back with the above goodies, despite his super tight schedules *happy!*
See the Hello Kitty tubes?
They are the Vivelle range of body lotions. The 2 tubs are Vivelle body scrubs (I'm curious to try the Lemongrass ones)
The remaining items are from Martha Tilaar:-
- Shimmering powder (this is the trigger to start a shopping list)
- Firming creams for the tums and girls
- Oils for massages
Now, for a good date to start using them :D
Enhance whitening for bright and beautiful skin...
For a clearer, smoother, more radiant complexion. This concentrated, easily absorbed essence has been specially formulated to revitalise skin and moisturize for 24 hours.
A little facial everyday..
For best results, use day and night as part of your daily routine.
Suitable for all skin types.
Scent: Fresh floral
Price: Boots sales, about 250 baht
I like the packaging, solid in a glass bottle with a pump. Not heavy me thinks.
The smell is really refreshing. I only use this at night so far, and am on my way finishing it.
Its gel texture is easy to spread on, but I find some sticky feel if I apply this in a rush. And it would sting on "freshly" picked skin - so no picking on blackheads / pimples prior to using this.
Comes the real problem..
I don't know if it works for me hahaha. I think my skin still looks the same. Not any fairer for long, not any darker either.
Having said that, lately I have been skipping sunscreen a few times a week :P
After finishing the recent Sunkiller, I've been more cautious in trying out other sunscreens because I do not want to be surprised in the morning with white cast, just 5 mins before I rush out the house. Worse, I even walked out for lunch without an umbrella! (need to change need to change)
So I guess in a way, not getting any darker is great?
Anyway, I have decided to use this serum prior to applying a mask (any type).
I find it works better this way. I do find fairer, plumped skin after removing the mask. So I'll just leave this for the masking ritual then.
Don't think I'll repurchase this, not bad, but not excellent either..
Foxy Frangipani Says:
Hmm I threw away the packaging and now left with no product description..
This is one of the many sunscreen I've tried and really like.
... because it allows me to be lazy. Totally skipping BB Creams or foundations.
Its tinted runny texture is a dream to smooth on; leaving no white cast or oily residue. My skin was behaving all the time.
Not leaving a white cast is a big deal for me as I am always rushing in the morning, hence not liking the idea of spending extra minutes to blend.
Also the 30ml size is good for travel. Won't spill, but more because of the SPF50+. And of course the multi tasking giving me a great finish. Minimal steps, great pictures!
Also, the price is very affordable. At below RM30, this occassionally goes on sale at Watsons.

Foxy Frangipani Says:
This is easily the most luxurious (read: expensive) scrub I own so far... and let me go straight to the point - I LOVE THIS STUFF!
Ok, first the scent is just heavenly. One whiff and I am relaxed. So calming and soothing..
The scrub texture is great for an all over scrub; however I don't fancy scrub with oil for the pits.. There are lots of lavender buds, when crushed, release more calming fragrance. Nice!
This rinses well and I like using this on damp skin. After shower with this srub, my skin feels velvety and always puts me in a great mood. Fantastic for those moody tough days...
As usual, I got this when the collection was launched, I don't remember the price anymore. However much I love this, I doubt I'll repurchase as I'm not keen in paying a bomb for wash-offs. *I wonder if they still sell this.. I have not been to a Crabtree store since my last handcreams purchase*

Crabtree products are like a luxury for me. I will never be able to justify paying the full price for their products. But come Christmas and whenever they have new products launching (damn, they have alot of launchings per year), is my haul time. Prices then seems ok, not for the frugals but occassionaly splurge is fine.
I love this body polisher!
For the texture, just the way I like it. Coarse enough to feel a good buff, my skin looks healthy after each use. Very smooth to touch, perfect to follow up with lotion. I tend to like coarser texture so I could use it on my feet too..
And the scent... oh just heavenly. Very citrusy and refreshing. Makes me feel very pampered.
It doesn't leave oily residue and is very easy to rinse off. The 200g tube lasted me about a couple of months. I use this everyday, on some days, more to cover the entire body.
One gripe though about the cap. It needs to be kept at the drier areas of the bathroom. If it gets wet, some yellowish build up would appear inside - gross. Other than that - perfect!
