Himalaya Neem Face Pack and St Ives Mineral Clay Firming Mask

Today I am going to introduce 2 types of masks available from the drugstores/local pharmacies.

The first one is Himalaya Neem Face Pack.
This mask is a clarifying mask for oily and and acne prone skin.

The product description and ingredients:

One of my models who tried the mask.

Rating for Scent:3/5
Rating for Product Texture:3/5
Rating for Product Packaging: 3/5
Rating for Product Effectiveness: 4/5
Price: RM20 ++ for 150ml
Do I recommend this to you: Yes, because it clears the skin of acne


The second mask is St Ives Mineral Clay Firming Mask.
This mask claims to be a deep cleasing mask suitable for oily skin.

The product description and ingredients:

My model who tried this mask:

Rating for Scent:3/5
Rating for Product Texture:3/5
Rating for Product Packaging: 3/5
Rating for Product Effectiveness/Coverage: 2/5
Price: RM16.90 for 134g
Do I recommend this to you: No, because it does not deliver its promise, no firming effect at all, I do not feel that my skin is deeply cleansed after using this mask. However, I would recommend you Origins Out of trouble mask for deep cleansing.

Have you tried any of these masks before? Thanks for sharing.

Trip to Guilin, China (part 1)

Dear Friends,

I just came back from Guilin , China on 23 Apr 2010.

Here are some pictures.

In a park in Guilin, China

Moon Hill

Stalagmite in the cave

We came out from the cave

Traditional Fishing Method - using local duck. The fisherman tied a string on the duck's neck and let the duck go for a swim. Notice the duck's bulging throat - there is a fish inside. See the next picture.

When the duck caught the fish, it cannot swallow, the picture below shows the fisherman removing the fish from the duck's throat.

The traditional farming method - using water buffalo.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Will put up more pictures another time. Has anyone been to Guilin, China?

Fruit Juice Recipe for Health

It is good if you can drink fruit and vegetable juice as often as you can, preferably in the morning on empty stomach.

If you want to ensure that your fruits and vege are free from pesticides, you have to soak it in a vege wash. You just need 30 ml of this home made vege wash for a basin of water. Soak for 40 mins.

Note: I made this vege wash using fruit skin and brown sugar. The mixture is fermented for 3 months prior to using.

Today I used apple, beet root, celery, carrot and orange.

This is what I get:

This combination can be changed according to your liking.

Stay healthy!

Estee Lauder Gossip Girl Makeover Event

On 10 Apr 2010, I went for a one to one makeup event organized by Estee Lauder. 


I was attended by a young and skillful makeup artist, Erich Yap. He shared with me how to create the smokey eye look for monolid and I am happy with the end result.

Although no liquid foundation / powder were used (due to time constraint), the effect is still good. The makeup artist only used some concealer around my eye area. I added the loose powder when I reached home.

Hi Lovelies,

How is everyone doing?
Today's look is the earth tone look. I hope u like it.

Eye products used are shown below:

I apply the darker shade at the outer corner of the eye first.
I use clear mascara on lazy days like today - it eases the cleaning but not much impact though

How do u like this look?
