Beauty: F.Cup Rich Cookies (Strawberry)

I'll admit, I have a tiny physique so it's no surprise that I'm always labelled as 'flat-chested' by my friends. But that's ok, I'm still awesome!! Hahahaha. I also admit that I've hoped for a fuller bust just because it can make me look better in certain clothes. This is quite a sensitive topic to talk about, but it's nothing to be ashamed about since all girls have boobs right? Thank goodness there are solutions out there for flat-chested girls like me to enhance that certain area.

I've heard a lot about these F.Cup Rich Cookies, but have yet to try them. Seems like SaSa Malaysia read my mind and sent me a box to try! Thank you!

F.Cup Rich Cookies are the new and improved version of ordinary F.Cup Cookies. F.Cup Cookies are helping women everywhere to look and feel more feminine. It is a hot-selling product in Japan, Taiwan and Singapore and has sold 4.5 million boxes up to date! F.Cup Cookies are highly recommended by celebrities and beauty talk shows. The active ingredient Pueraria Mirifica not only helps with breast enlargement and healthier menstruation, it also helps to keep your hair and skin healthier. There have even been reports of reduced acne, relieves menopausal symptoms, increases circulation and vaginal secretion, and also reduces stress and aging. The new F.Cup Rich Cookies contains 2x more Pueraria Mirifica so apparently you get double the results? :p 

Consume one piece of cookie a day and drink plenty of water, as it absorbs water, swells and gives a feeling of satiety. Something to take note of is not to consume F.Cup Rich Cookies during pregnancy, breastfeeding or menstruation. Do not eat also if you are allergic to any of the ingredients. I got the F.Cup Rich Cookies in Strawberry flavour. Results may differ according to each individual as some can see results in as fast as 3 weeks. This is not a dependent medication and once you've reached your desired results, you may stop. It is advisable not to consume the cookies for more than 2 months. Fret not, there are no side effects of consuming F.Cup Rich Cookies as they are approved by Japan's Ministry of Health and KKM as a Non-hazardous Health Food.

There are 15 cookies in one box, wrapped in plain silver wrapper. As I understand, this is unlike the old version of F.Cup Cookies which had chocolate and strawberry flavours in printed wrapper.


This is how the cookie looks like, just like a long, plain cookie. The black bits are actually pieces of dried strawberry! I wouldn't say it's the tastiest cookies in the world, but it's bearable. The texture is soft, but a little dry and crumbly. It is not overly sweet, which I like, and I do consume one every morning as my breakfast.

I've been consuming F.Cup Cookies for about 2 weeks now and guess what? There is actually a 2cm increase in my bust size! Of course it's not that obvious but it's still something! My bust is also significantly firmer now, even without exercise. The only downside is that it's quite pricey at RM118 per box. If not, I would definitely buy another box to stock up! Oh wells. 

You can purchase the F.Cup Rich Cookies from all SaSa outlets nationwide. Follow SaSa Malaysia for more deals and promotions!

Beauty: Mee Cosmetics Brightly Sharp Eyeliner

I am an eyeliner-hoarder. I love eyeliners, and I love to collect them and try out which one works best one me. Heh. So I was really excited when I go the chance to try out Mee Cosmetics Brightly Sharp Eyeliner from Essential Beauty House which won the Cleo Best Liquid Eyeliner 2014 Award!

Always appreciate a prettily packaged product!

Mee Cosmetics is a brand from Thailand but the Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is made in Korea. Well, we know how great Korean beauty products are, so I had high expectations about this! The product has also been featured in various magazines. Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is a new innovative automatic liquid eyeliner. It has a smudge-proof and waterproof formula, dries quickly, long-lasting for 24 hours and is easy to remove with makeup remover. Currently, the Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is only available in the shade Black.

The Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is a simple pen type liquid eyeliner, just the way I like it. It is very lightweight and perfect for carrying around. One thing I noticed abut the eyeliener is that it has a ball inside which is meant to be shaken before you use the eyeliner.

It comes with a slim brush which is great for slim and sharp lines. The intense black colour can emphasise your eyes to make them stand out. After using, remember to close the cap tightly and keep away from sunlight and heat to avoid the eyeliner from drying out.

I performed a few simple tests on my hand before trying it out on my eyes to see if the eyeliner lives up to its name. As it's a liquid eyeliner, the formula does run a little and settle into the fine lines of my hand. The eyeliner is proven to be waterproof as it doesn't run when in contact with water. But once it has come into contact with water, it smudges more easily, which got me quite disappointed. Lastly, I used my PureViVi Cleansing Lotion and one swipe is enough to remove the eyeliner completely!

Shake the eyeliner slightly before use to get an even application. Apply it along the lash line, wait for it to try and apply more layers if you prefer your eyeliner to be blacker and thicker.

How the eyeliner looks after drawing my usual cat-eye, slightly winged liner. 


I had the eyeliner on for about 10 hours that day, and I cried a little cos we were out watching a movie. Haha. After 10 hours, the eyeliner has faded and isn't as sharp anymore, but considering that it still stayed on after crying, the remaining results is quite impressive!

As I have slightly oily lids, it is difficult to find an eyeliner that won't smudge. Unfortunately, the Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner did smudge a little on the edge of my eye after I rubbed it lightly.

Again, removal is a breeze and I only need to wipe once with my makeup remover wipe to get the product right off.

I like that the Mee Brightly Sharp Eyeliner is so light and space-saving so I always carry it out in my makeup pouch nowadays to do light touch-ups.  I always appreciate fine-tip pen liners as I find that it is easier to build up. It's a good eyeliner to use if you're a beginner at makeup. Sadly, it isn't as smudge-proof as it claims to be but I would recommend it for the colour payoff is amazing for just one layer and it is easy to draw and control. This can even be an alternative for my current favourite eyeliner, the Maybelline Hypersharp Liner Laser Precision. The price is also very affordable at less than RM50 as the quality is comparable to higher-end branded eyeliners out there.

You can find the Mee Cosmetics Brightly Sharp Eyeliner at Essential Beauty House Malaysia HERE for only RM39.90

Moody

Everytime it's late at night, I just feel a certain wave of sadness hit me. This is the best time to write it all out. It might be because of the stress of finding a job - my parents have really been going at me for that. It might be because I have so much work to do that I can hardly breathe. It might be the fact that my camera lens is spoiled because of my stupidity and carelessness. It might also be because I haven't seen my bf in two weeks because he's so busy with uni, despite both of us being in JB. It might be because... Idk, I'm just... sad.

2015 hasn't been awesomely kind so far. Despite not having a full-time job, I'm still working, ok. I'm working part-time for a local magazine and I have meetings and reviews to attend too. I have copywriting to do for some companies. I have blog posts to rush. I've been so busy that I feel as if I can hardly breathe. I feel so useless and unproductive. I'm living just to look forward to the end of each week. I frag myself out of bed each morning, refusing to face the new day ahead. I don't want to wake up late and tired everyday, but the night time is the only time my scumbag brain is productive and decides to do real work. -_-

Now that my camera is down, it makes me feel so unproductive. I feel that photos taken with my iPhone 5S just would not make the cut to keep the consistency of my blog posts :( I need my camera back ASAP but at the same time, I'll need to work harder to earn more money to pay for the lens.. Sigh.. My birthday is in a week, anyone wanna donate angpao? Haha.

I have sooo many unfinished tasks, sometimes I don't understand why also. It's like I can't even find time to do the vital things, like applying for a job. Have to do trivial stuff like altering my clothes, pack my room, renew my driving license, sync my phone etc and all these takes up so much time, I just.. cannot. What ever happened to my "resolution" to be more organised... Sigh. 


Speaking of jobs, the jobscope and job market in JB is really so small! It's hard to find something that pays well and most importantly, makes me happy. I am really reluctant to get a job and just work for the sake of working. I know I'm going to be unhappy. My parents are not helping to ease the stress and have been nagging me to find a job. It's not that I'm not trying, it's just that it's SO hard to find. I've tried looking for Singapore companies, but it's even harder because most require prior work experiences. I'm trying, I'm crying, but I know it's all useless. I'm still young, there are so many things I wanna see, so many things I wanna do... But I guess that's life, and I don't have a choice right? Shall continue looking, and pray for a miracle to come my way. 


Please let me get my life back in order.

CNY Cookies for Sale! (JB Area)

The last two days, I helped out my aunt to bake CNY Cookies to sell. I decided to blog about it and who knows, some of you might be interested to purchase the cookies?

I've loved my aunt's baked goods since I was a kid. She bakes cookies for CNY, cakes for our birthdays, or just randomly tries out new recipes for bread, cakes and other baked goods. Just my luck to live just one street away from her :p I especially love her pineapple tarts and cheese log for Chinese New Year but this year, she'll only be baking these butter cookies and peanut cookies (no photos, sorry)! Still darn yummy, imo.

Selling for RM23 per canister.








Fresh from the oven!

 We spent about 4 hours to bake these. It's 100% pure creamy butter cookies, using kampung eggs somemore! ;p 100% homemade and 100% fresh, because we always believe that commercialised cookies aren't as healthy for you and not as yummy because they don't usually use natural ingredients. Which explains why those cookies have a longer shelf-life right? That's why I'm always a firm believer of trying out home-baked goods.

If you're interested in getting these butter cookies or peanut cookies, do PM me on Facebook or email me at carinn.tan93@gmail.com to place your orders. You can also order your birthday cakes from my aunt too! Like her page The Baking Sisters to keep updated and check out her past creations :)

In the meantime, Happy Chinese New Year in advance! I'm so excitedddd, are you? :D

Cheers,
Carinn

Bath & Body: NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner

Happy Sunday!

So recently, NIVEA has been super generous and sent me a huge box of NIVEA products. NIVEA has always been one of the most well-known and trusted brands in skincare, so you can imagine my surprise when I opened the box! I'm guessing I don't have to buy anymore lotions, shower cream, hand cream, moisturiser or in-shower conditioners anymore this year? Thank you NIVEA, for the generosity!

Sooo many goodies right! <3 I'm thinking of doing a giveaway, what do you think? ;)


The good (or bad) news is, I don't have to review ALL the items given (unless you want me to..). I'm only going to be talking about these NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioners which seems to be the rage lately. Well for this review, we'll be doing things a little bit different as I won't be the one that will test out these In-Shower Skin Conditioners but instead, I got my SISTER to review them for you! Cool, huh?

There are 3 main variants of NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioners - the regular In-Shower Skin Conditioner, In-Shower Whitening Skin Conditioner and In-Shower Intensive Skin Conditioner. There is also a newly added In-Shower Smooth Milk Skin Conditioner which I got my sis to try out for fun as well, just to give you a more comprehensive review. 

The NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner is a revolutionary and convenient way to moisturise the skin while in the shower. Nowadays, everyone's lifes are more hectic and we are always looking for solutions that are on-the-go. Both men and women love this product for it is an efficient solution to keeping your skin fully-hydrated and silky smooth. I for one, am lazy to use a body lotion every night, so the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditoner is my next best bet! No wonder so many stars like Erin Malek, Nadia Heng and Emily Quak can't stop talking about their love for this product!

NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner has been scientifically proven and dermatologically tested to deliver more moisture to the skin than normal shower gels with moisturising benefits. You might be wondering how can this product be effective if you have to wash it off immediately? When you're in the shower, it's the best time to moisturise as the skin is wet so the pores open up, making it the best time for skin to absorb nourishment easily. The unique formula of NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditoner is activated by water to fully moisturise and repair the skin. You will have to rin se off any excess product to avoid unpleasant residues (there will be no harmful effects if left on, but it feels abit sticky). 


NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner (for Normal Skin)
Truth be told, I've been using this regular NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner for awhile now. It promises a silky, soft water-like looking skin everyday. It is specially formulated for normal skin and is enriched with Sea Minerals to help keep the skin hydrated. I really love this as it is convenient and deeply replenishes moisture to my skin, hopefully my sister likes this too!

Price:
RM 16.90 (250ml)
RM 22.90 (400ml)

NIVEA In-Shower Whitening Skin Conditioner (for Dull Skin)
This particular one is great for people with dull skin who are looking to instantly brighten up their skin. This formula is enriched with 50x more Vitamin C, derived from Camu Camu, which is known for its natural antioxidant and skin lightening properties.

Price:
RM 18.90 (250ml)
RM 24.90 (400ml)

NIVEA In-Shower Intensive Skin Conditioner (for Dry Skin)
This is a life saviour for people with dry skin. It is enriched with rich nourishing Almond Oil for that extra smooth, silky touch.

Price:
RM 16.90 (250ml)
RM 22.90 (400ml)

NIVEA In-Shower Smooth Milk Skin Conditioner (for Dry Skin)
For irresistably smooth skin, it is advised for people with dry and sensitive skin to try out this new In-Shower Conditioner that is enriched with Shea Butter. Not only does it smell good, the smoothness is undeniable!

Each NIVEA In-Shower Conditioner bottle has the same open-top and squeeze tube. They come in two sizes - 250ml (which is more convenient for travelling IMO) and 400ml.

It looks and feel just like a normal lotion, right? But this whitish cream actually has a unique water-activated formula that is designed to be used and rinsed off in the shower. It has been tested and proven that the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner significantly increases hydration for more than 24 hours after a single application. 

The results are almost instanteneous - you can feel your skin becoming more moisturised and silky soft right after you wash it off.

To use the NIVEA In-Shower Conditioner, all you have to do is cleanse with shower gel, wash it off, the followed by the In-Shower Conditioner while in the shower. Apply it like you would usually apply shower gel then immediately rinse it off thoroughly. No waiting time is required and you can get dressed immediately after that! It is best to use NIVEA In-Shower Conditioner after your shower gel as it is not a 2-in-1 product and does not contain any cleansing property. 

So here are a few simple questions that I asked my sis regarding her experience using NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner for the past few weeks.

What do you think about NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner?
It's a very easy and fast method of getting one to apply lotion or conditioner on the skin as I tend to forget to do so. Even if I'm in a rush, there is always time to spare to use this skin conditioner as the effects is so fast! Right after rinsing off you can feel that your skin is fully-treated already. NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner is really unique and effective!

How do you feel after using the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner?
My skin feels softer and smoother after each use. I do not feel any itchiness and my skin feels moisturised all day!

Which variant of NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner did you like the most and why?
My favourite would be the NIVEA In-Shower Intensive Skin Conditioner. It's more potent compared to the regular and whitening one, and it also smells the best!

Is there anyting you disliked about the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner?
Sometimes when I don't wash it off properly, it leaves some sticky and greasy residue behind which is quite uncomfortable. I feel the NIVEA In-Shower Smooth Milk Skin Conditioner doesn't suit me as much, as it feels blotchy on the skin after use.

Would you use it daily and recommend the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner to your friends?
Yes, I have been using it everyday and will continue to do so. If any of my friends ask me, of course I'll introduce it to them!

If you're like us and the millions of other women who love the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner, join us in the latest "I LOVE NIVEA In-Shower Body Lotion" campaign and invite more Malaysians to be part of this revolution. More people needs to be aware that they can maximise their time and revolutionise showering altogether! Go to this app on NIVEA's Facebook page to declare your love for this breakthrough innovation!
