Product Review: Shills Bio-Active Stem Cell Combat Eye Treatment

I received a small sample of the Shills Bio-Active Stem Cell Combat Eye Treatment and have been using it for 2 weeks now.

Product Desciption:
Prevent and reduce wrinkles & fine lines
Repair the damage caused by free radicals from the environment

How to use:
Apply the cream on eye area with light tapping motions

What I like:
1. The texture is creamy but not oily
2. Easily absorbed
3. Fine lines around the eye area appears less visible

What can be improved:
Shills can consider changing the product packaging into a tube form for hygenic reason.

Other than that, I think this is a good daily eye cream. It does not make your face powder look cakey.

Product Review: Shills Instant Pink Lips Pack

Shills Instant Pink Lips Pack is an interesting products for those who are interested to tint their lips an lightens their areolas. In the pack, there are 2 tubes. One contains a whitish liquid and the other contains a pinkish liquid.

The white liquid helps to lighten the lip colour. Some smokers may have darken lips and can try using this to lighten their lips. A better way is to quit smoking. It is tough but it is not impossible with strong will power. We will not go further with the discussion here.

I have tried both the colors and like the pink one better mainly because I do not have dark lips, thankfully.

My lips turned slightly pink lips after 5 to 10 mins
This product is suitable for those who have pale lip color and do not want to use lipstick. This is an option for you. 

The formula of Shills lip pack is safe for consumption. So, there is no worry that you swallow them together with yoru food and drinks.

So, if you like to have a natural pinkish lips, you can visit Shills outlet and find out more about this product.

Anosa Fit Patch

Anosa Fit Patch is a slimming patch that is made in Taiwan. Anosa slimming patch is also an anti-cellulite patch. It can be fitted on your tummy, back of your thighs for slimming the areas.

L-Carnitine, Caffeine, Evening Primrose oil, Borage oil, Raspberry extract, Warmact, Collagen, Water, Glycerin, Polysorbate 80, Sodium Polyacrylate, Polyvinyl Alcohol

Size: 10 cm x 14 cm

I have tried using Anosa Fit Patch on my tummy area. It is very easy to use. You just need to remove the plastic film from the patch and stick the pink colored surface to your skin. After around 5 to 10 mins, you will feel a warm sensation. It is not a burning sensation but just warm. After a while you will be adjusted to the warm sensation.

I cannot testify whether the slim patch can burn away the excess fat because I just tried one time. I used it at night before sleeping and peel it off the next morning. There is no irritation on my skin despite the long hours of use. However, each person’s skin is different. Therefore, it is safer for you to do a patch test before using it. You can cut a small corner and stick it to your skin and test the patch.

You can purchase Anosa Fit Patch at all Shills outlet.

Hope you will try it.

Sakae Sushi launches first iPad ordering system in Malaysia

During the Shills Meet Blogger Event, we were invited to Sakae Sushi Berjaya Times Square to view the iPad ordering system. I think it is a cool idea by Sakae Sushi. 

The iPad Ordering System was first introduced in Sakae Sushi the Curve, Berjaya Times Square and Sunway Pyramid to improve customer experience and handle complex orders efficiently and accurately.

I personally think that the iPad ordering system will provide customers a whole new dining experience. Feels like living in the space age yea. No more waiving to the waitress to take order. Simply browse through the iPad for your favourite dish and voila! the order is served in a while.

Look at the tantalising treats for us.

I even took a picture with Froggy the cute mascot!

So what are you waiting for, why not you head down to Sakae Sushi and experience the iPad ordering system.
If you want to know what Jess thinks about Sakae Sushi iPad ordering system, check it here.

Thanks for reading.

Product Review: Jane Iredale PureMatte Finish Powder

Dear Friends

I have been using this Jane Iredale Pure MatteFinish Powder for a while and would like to share with you my thoughts.

I first heard about Jane Iredale from a blogger in Netherland and the name intrigues me. I thought the name Jane Iredale sounds sophisticated and elegant. I still think that way today. I often imagine Jane Iredale as a beautiful lady, someone who looks like Audrey Hepburn of My Fair Lady!

Early this year I attended a workshop and received a RM100 voucher to redeem any products from Jane Iredale. I was overjoyed. 

I topped up with RM59 and redeemed myself the Jane Iredale PureMatte Finish Powder and immediately start using it. Now I am half way through as I can see the pan now. 

 Love the insignia, I took this pic before I started using the product

Love the elegant casing!

Ingredients List

What do I like about Jane Iredale PureMatte Finish Powder?
1. It is very suitable for oily skin (like myself) as it controls oil for about 3-4 hrs before you need to reach for your blotting paper
2. It gives a very matte finish and does not clog my pores
3. The packaging is so elegant (but a bit heavy). It has a magnetic casing and the refill is available at RM100.
4. No Paraben

What do I dislike?
1. It is a translucent powder, therefore don't expect any good coverage. I normally use it after my skincare.(I do not use any liquid foundation). For those who use liquid foundation, this will be perfect.
2. I think it is rather pricy but in this case the price comes with quality but it is not necessary so all the time. 

Price: 9.9g for RM159 (if I remember correctly)

Product Details (obtained from
Specially formulated to help those who want to avoid shine. Use under or over mineral powders.

  • No oil, talc, FD&C dyes or synthetic preservatives
  • Highly absorbent rice starch
  • Will not clog pores or dry the skin

My Rating:
Product packaging: 5/5
Oil Control : 4.5/5
Price: 3/5
Quality & safe ingredients: 4/5 (it contains Dimethicone, a type of silicon which can irritate some super sensitive skin but I am fine with it)

Will I repurchase? Maybe, when I have the budget.

Have you tried any of Jane Iredale's product before? Do share and have a happy week ahead.

Product Review: Skin Food and Etude House Sheet Mask

Dear Readers and friends

Lately I have been quite busy and lazy. Therefore, there is a lack of post. I have been wanting to do a small giveaway but have not decided how the giveaway should be like. It will be a simple one I promise. So stay tune.

Meanwhile, I will do a review on 2 types of sheet masks which I have tried. Personally, I am not a fan of sheet mask. I think that they are less effective than conventional mask in a jar or tube. That's just me. You may not agree with me but that's ok.

Skin Food White Chocolate Mask Sheet (RM8.60 for 20ml)

Product Promise: Mask with cocoa extracts provide elasticity to the skin

Instruction: Leave on face for 10 to 15 mins, massage in any excess liquid

What I like:
1. Smell of chocolate is very comforting and nice

What I dislike:
1. The shape of the mask sheet does not fit my face well. (you can see the pic below)
2. There is not much liquid (maybe the liquid evaporated as I kept the mask for too long about 9 months or so)

Note: The ingredients are in Korean, therefore I can't comment.

I look so funny here. The mask is ill fitting

Etude House Pomegranate Sheet Mask (23ml - price unavailable as I received this free from my other purchase)

Product Promise: Essence mask contains pomegranate additives that nourishes the complexion. Tension fit design for improved facial adhesion and comfort 

Instruction: Leave on face for 20 to 30 mins, recommend to use every 2 to 3 days for maximum efficacy, massage remaining solution into skin

What I like: 
1. The fresh fruity smell
2. contains Ginkgo biloba leaf extract, other roots and leaf extract, squalene
3. contains more liquid
4. The mask sheet has a better fit

What I dislike: contains alcohol and other chemicals like methylparaben
The Etude House mask fits better

What brand of sheet mask do you recommend? Any favourite brand? Thanks for sharing.
