Did you know? The Major cause of bad morning breath occurs while you are asleep because rapid bacterial growth during the night may be the cause of bad breath when you wake up. Sounds scary right?

 

Hermo: Beauty Collection

Not to worry. Just a month ago I got a lovely package from Hermo sent by Skynet. My delivery was packed in a bubble wrap & so the little gal in me starts to pop all my stress away, what an amusement :D

 

Dr.Barman’s + Dentiste

First Day: Got it on the 18th of March via delivery which makes me a user to this toothpaste+brush for a month. First Impression when I open the cap is that I saw hygienic pump from Germany. It has the super strong mint+clove taste that reminds me of a oral freshener that I don’t fancy when I was a kid. I just have to press & the toothpaste will pumped out, I feel guilty as I used to try to put back some over due toothpaste which is not very hygiene so now I can’t do that any more :x As usual, I spit out some blood stain due to my weak gums.

 

Dr. Barman’s Special Brush 2

I was given extra soft brush which is the best for my weak gums. Special 2 brushes 3 surfaces at the same time: front/back teeth+gums around the teeth. So I can spend less time watching my morning look at the mirror while making sure I get a fresh breath in the morning :p I never like to brush my gums as I hate it whenever i spit blood but this brush feels like a good massage to my gums :)

 

Dentiste Plus White NightTime Toothpaste Pump

Dentiste’ Plus White Nighttime Toothpaste have 14 natural extracts, xylitol, CDX (cyclodextrin complex), silica complex & stable vitamin C. I would highly recommend if you have little time for daily oral care, pregnant, diabetic, patients with respiratory problem, lack of rest due to stress of work, need a confident boost, smokers & coffee drinkers.

Dr. Barman’s Special Brush 2 are more suitable for ladies as Dr. Barman’s Special Brush 1 is designed with slightly bigger head size for men. Dr. Barman’s toothbrush is made in Norway – Patents world-wide. It believes to provide you with healthier gums from less bleeding. Bristles has more contact with tooth surfaces & correctly angled to clean along the gum line & remove 20% more plaque.

 

End of 1 Month Journey

What I like about this product:
> Super strong Mint + Clove flavour like freshener
> Hygienic pump
> NO bubbly bubbles
> Brush front/back teeth + gums at the same time
> Brush was extra soft on gum

What I don’t like about this product:
> Bad breath only reduced if you brush on tongue as well
> NO whitening effect (still have yellowish teeth)

Dentiste’ Plus White Nighttime Toothpaste 120g Pump is selling @ RM23.00 (online RM18.00) while Dr Barman’s Special Brush is selling @ RM29.90 (online RM24.00). Check out the WEBSITE for special rates & other beauty products. Do check out their FACEBOOK PAGE: Hermo for the latest update.

Review: bag of Love

*Click square photo for direct link to Instagram/Facebook

Thank you The Butterfly Project for giving me the chance to review Jan14 Bag of love. What is that??? Gosh, so many stuff how can I get myself to done trying everything in time? Mamasan said test all in one night kakaka but that never happen Never try never know right? Let’s go!

 

Lot’s of Love <3

Inside my bag of love there are Wella Professional Enrich Moisturizing Shampoo & Treatment, RM30 cash voucher for Strip: Ministry of Waxing, King of Mask All-in-One Collagen Mask, Uber Men Whitening Hydra Gel Cleansing + Toner Effect, Alqvimia Body Sculptor Oil, Anti-Cellulite Body Oil, Shape Reducer Body Oil, Etude House Wonder Pore After Sun Special Set & RM20 cash voucher for mylens.com.my (not in next photo).

 

New Year, New You!

Wella Professional Enrich Moisturizing Shampoo 250ml, RM55
If you are not familiar with the condition of my hair in 2013, you may check out my collection HERE. I became very particular with my hair products & I love this shampoo. It eliminates oil/dirt out from my scarp/hair but at the same time didn’t dry out my bleached hair. Highly recommend for damaged hair that needs enrich moisturizing.

Wella Professional Enrich Moisturizing Treatment 150ml, RM58
This will be my least favourite hair treatment product. This statement is based on 3 usage with increasing amount used on my each hair wash session. I think the existing conditioners in my bathroom can do a better job :/

Strip: Ministry of Waxing RM30 Cash Voucher
Haven’t get the chance to try out the RM30 voucher as there’s no outlet located near Klang area. But based on my experience as guinea pig model back in Singapore, I had mixed results done by different students so I hope my next visit as a client in Malaysia will be way better in terms of sensitive reaction after some of my treatments.

King of Mask All-In-One Collagen Mask RM5.90
I actually had problem peeling/biting the packaging so I had to surrender to the scissors’ help to unlock my very first collagen mask. Upon applying to my face I actually enjoyed the weird woody root smell. I can’t tell how good is this mask with a single usage but with the slight skin irritation after 20 minutes on my face is consider a good record in my list for my typical 30 minutes mask session.

Uber Men Whitening Hydra Gel Cleanser Full Size RM11.90
It eliminates dirts & oil, it comes along with a toner effect. Best used after work out session as you don’t have to bring your toner along :p Too bad that I’m still single as I would definitely enjoy the manly after shave perfume fragrance from this cleanser ^_^

Body Sculptor Oil 150ml RM370
Anti-Cellulite Body Oil 150ml RM290
Shape Reducer Body Oil 150ml RM290
These Alqvimia products are not cheap but not really the items that I would use everyday. The Body Sculptor Oil were meant to prevent excess weight & liquid retention while tone the skin but I only use it when I had hard time going to bed, the lemongrass smell works better than lavender (for me). The Anti-Cellulite Body Oil drives me crazy as I don’t fancy the smell that reminds me of nuts :( Shape Reducer Body Oil had this lemon + other unfamiliar smells. I guess it suppose to help me reduce my weight as well?

Etude House Wonder Poer After Sun Special Set
(Full size product range from RM69.90-79.90)
These 7 in 1 total pore solution might be what I need for my rough pores =.= Wonder Pore Clay Clear appeared in ash mud colour, it feels like having cake cream on your face for 15-20 minutes. After rinse I feel my face becomes smoother & smells fresh. I personally find the Wonder Pore Freshner a little too sticky for a toner but enjoyed the green apple fragrance. The Moistfull Aloe Smoothing Gel looks like sanitizer when you squeeze it out make you think oh no, typical aloe vera is attacking. Luckily there’s no smell from this product & I enjoyed the moist level on my skin.

MyLens.com.my RM20 Cash Voucher
Who wants to get themselves a few boxes of contact lens? I had 2 RM10 cash voucher but you need to have a minimum purchase in order to have the rebate so it’s not really my thing. Ask me if you’re interested to use my vouchers :)

Sorry, there’s no selfie or more up close shoot of the products. I’m not your typical beauty blogger, just a lucky tomboy having the privileged to try out some mysterious beauty products. If you personally ask me, I think I’m getting a little too much stuff to use so I don’t think I would be interested to get more surprises till I’m done with the stuff I had with me. But if you find my beauty adventure is fun & would like to it a try you can check out their FACEBOOK page for the latest updates :D

P/S: Mamasan asked if my nick Coconut comes from the size of my coconuts =.=

The Apartment: Skindulgence, Your Better Than Milk Routine

*Click square photo for direct link to Instagram/Facebook

Thank you The Butterfly Project for having me in my very first appearance among your beauty bloggers community. It’s been years since my last visit to The Curve, kinna miss the Top 200 selection during Project Superstar year 2 & 3…

 

Early Bird Gets the Best Seat

Attending Dove’s event deffinately need to dress up according to their white/dark blue colour theme ;) Glad to met Jennie, my hometown gal again. Guess last night I wasn’t dateless after all :p

 

Dove Body Wash Demo

Decided to give it a try. The level of moisture on my left had was 66.6%, after using full cream milk it went up to 69.8%. The level of moisture on my right hand was slight lower at 64.4%, after using Dove body wash it went extremely moist @ 71.1%. Guess it’s really better than MILK! Totoro, you are so wrong about milk :p I have to admit I love to wash/sanitize my hand whenever I had is the reason my hand is way moister than most gals that enjoys using moisturizing products :x I might get to love myself better by try Dove’s latest product on my dry feet in the future ^_^

 

Preparing our own Salad

If you did noticed my previous photo it was written Group A Kitchen: Eat Right! Jennie & I was so happy cause we’re such a typical oink oink hehehe Turns out we had to prepare out own healthy meal. We learnt to prepare two dish which are Broccoli Chicken Salad & Japanese Saba with Mushroom. Since dinner is served after the event by The Apartment we got to bring our little creation back home & eat right :D

 

Shower Time :D

Guess after all the tiring time it’s time for me to stay active by trying everything out. Love the flavouring of the salads due to the mixed ingredient, but the Japanese Saba is somewhat too oily for my liking. Dove Beauty Nourishing (dark blue) has the very milky smell, eliminates body odor better if you stay indoor without using deodorant, a good shower freshen up your morning ;) Dove Gentle Exfoliating (light blue) has mild smell if you don’t fancy milk smell, it has this little beads that gives your skin a gentle scrub, I prefer to use this at night before I go off to bed Z.Z

Hey, come a little closer. I heard that next month onwards Dove will be having an Instagram contest. You can win yourself a RM100 hamper weekly & 10 lucky winners will have an awesome 3D2N trip to Krabi! Do wait up for my next update or check out their Facebook Page.
