#Hair: I found a solution to get rid of my dandruff + Itchy scalp! C.Michael Revitalise Dandruff Control Shampoo, Regenerate Scalp Serum & Intense Repair Masque Review.

I am super duper extravelighiraojdfoad excited to share this post because I finally solve my long taaaaime hair issue, the nightmare called Hair Dandruff & Itchy Scalp.
Can't wait to share with you all that have the same issue!
YASSS

Happy until can cry guys. *Need drama abit*


Totally went all out matching with the products lol.

 C.Michael asked me about my hair concern. 
'Other than dry damage hair, I have scalp issue called dandruff, which is annoying AF.'
^Literally what I said.^

So about 2 months ago, they have picked 3 products for me and I've been happily using it till today!!
(Look out for a discount code at end of the post ya!)


From left to right: 
C. Michael Intense Repair Masque: Acts as a hair mask/conditioner. Use after shampoo.
C.Michael Regenerate Scalp Serum: Sprayed on scalp for scalp care.
C.Michael Revitalise Dandruff Control Shampoo: Shampoo to get rid of itchy and dandruff hair!

If I never cared about silicone and all those cheap shitz that damages the hair, I could have fix my hair issue with just Head & Shoulders or even Sunsilk since it's everywhere and so fregging cheap but NOPE & NEVER because I don't want to end up with a broom hair. All those commercials that show you how these cheap shampoo's will make your hair silky smooth.. Those are just bullshit temporary okay. Internally, your hair cells die.

This is why I usually try to invest in my hair products. My hair memang went through lots of bleaching and coloring so giving it extra care and thought while choosing the right products, my hair will definitely thank me.

 C.Michael products contains no silicone and definitely contains ingredients that will boost the condition of the hair. (Exactly what I am looking for in a hair product)


C.Michael Revitalise Dandruff Control Shampoo

About this product:
Apple Stem cell combined with Piroctone Olamine that helps reduces flaking, itchiness and soothes inflamed scalp. An anti-bacterial and anti-fungal property to cure fungal activity on the scalp.

You have noooo ideaaa how excited I am to use this product when I first got it. I'm like 'Fudge yessss, I can finally solve my dandruff issueeee!' I'm so sick of waking up in the middle of the night scratching my head off.  The scratching was so severe and serious causing my scalp to be red and sensitive. It was really a FML time.

Just to clarify, I only wash my hair once every 2 days , reason is to maintain my hair color. Even so, (from my own research) it is not healthy to wash hair too often because maintaining natural hair oils are important.

My verdict after using it for 2 months
If you haven't knew, anti dandruff shampoo's are usually cooling to soothe inflamed scalp. Which also means, dyed hair does not go well with cooling shampoos because hair dye falls easily in contact with cooling products. However, I am surprise that this shampoo, even though it is anti-dandruff it is not overwhelming cooling (like the Head & Shoulders punya that lebih lebih on it's cooling-ness) which is great for my colored hair! This shampoo lather power will probably fall at 7 out of 10. It doesn't lather much but so far, I'm really cool with it because my hair is short. For girls with long hair, you might need to use slightly more product if you're planning to lather all the way to your hair ends.

Overall, I'm super happy with this shampoo because it cleanses my scalp clean and now I rarely get itchy scalp and dandruff flakes!


C. Michael Intense Repair Masque

About this product:
A dual action formula where it  combines the benefits of a conditioner and treatment and reduces hair loss. An intense repair hair masque that protects the hair follicles and scalp, a combination of minerals that keeps moisture locked in to the hair.It also helps clear of off excessive build-up dead cells.

This product pretty much helps to boost nutrients and soften my damage and dry hair. This is the first time I ever heard of a conditioner/masque that could be use on scalp as well. It's definitely amazing that it benefits the scalp however I'm not quite a fan of it being used on scalp because from my own experience, the squeaky clean effect from the shampoo just dissapears, and my scalp get's a little itchy after. You get what I mean?

My verdict after using it for 2 months:
I really love how it gives my hair a nutrient and silky smooth boost after! It even smells great! It actually smells like Sunsilk's conditioner, but the consistency is different, this is way much watery. I'm guessing it's because they do not have silicone in it. But of course, it works better than Sunsilk duh!


C.Michael Regenerate Scalp Serum

About this product:
A generating scalp serum that uses complex of natural extracts of fruit and apple stemcell. Formulated to help stimulate healthy hair growth while producing stronger hair.

I've heard of  the goodness of scalp serums but never really had the chance to use them. Apparently, scalp serums are good for those with sensitive scalp. So glad to be given this to test it out if it really works!

My verdict after using it for 2 months:
Honestly, It was pretty troubling to use this product all over my scalp since I had to section my hair here and there. So, I did it the 'cheating' way where I only spritz it on areas that were itchy or constantly having itch issues. I use them on slightly damp hair after shower, or whenever I get that itch and it totally works! Once sprayed, it really minty and soothes the itchy scalp. Best of all, it nourishes my sensitive scalp!

Final Verdict:

I'm actually really please with these products because from this experience, I really felt a big difference compared to when I was not using them.

My scalp used to hurt so much even when just bleaching half an inch away from my roots however recently I just went for a hair makeover and my scalp wasn't burning during the bleaching process!

I'm definitely scratching way much lesser now and rarely get dandruff unless I never wash my hair for 3 days straight.

With my real and honest review, I definitely recommend this to you girls who have itchy scalp/ dandruff problems!

#Beauty: I just tried the most $$ Facial that Rehydrates and removes my skin blemishes! - Beauté Library

Hello Friends!
 Today I'll be sharing with you all a facial I've recently tried with Beauté Library. From my title, I know you might be wondering how much it is.. I'll let you know at the end okayy? So, read up till the end to know more ;)


As you might already know, one of my forever skin concern is the bad acne scars along and under my jawlines. My skin is never close to perfect. I have bumpy skin and my blackheads on my nose is super difficult to remove. I put a lot of effort into my skin care these days but I rarely make appointments to facials.

Speaking of my skin care routine, I've been trying products that work best for my current skin condition, I will definitely update you on it once everything goes well!

So, recently I got invited to review a facial called the
 Beauté Floral Essential Collagen Facial Treatment.
Say you have bad blemishes (dark acne scars) like mine, probably dry or combination skin like mine, or just a dull and bad condition skin like mine (especially when there's no makeup)... this facial is totally for you.

Watch my experience  down Beaute Library's flagship beauty center at Desa Park City for this exact facial!

 Did I mention, the products used are full on natural that are specially formulated for
Asian skin?? It's packed with extract from plants and flowers, totally gentle on all skin types. Plus, all treatments that are customized according to your need. 




The Beauté Floral Essential Collagen Facial Treatment took about two and a half hour. Overall (I keep saying word this in my vlog lolol), I really liked how soothing and gentle the products are. No tingly feeling at all! Quality is totally there.

Here's are the rough steps of the facial: 

Massage --> anti-inflammatory chamomile double cleanse --> Freshen up with a pineapple scrub that gently exfoliates your skin --> Extraction/removes signs of blackheads and acne -->  followed by a cell-frozen technology which helps to penetrate deep into your skin and rebuild the skin structure --> Customized mask --> Finishing off with serum &  moisturizer

Each treatment ends with a customized floral mask that includes specialized ingredients and floral essence to balance out sebum production and revitalize dry and oily skin. Woohoo!


Okay, I know it sounds damn atas and all because it's true, my facial is worth RM880. Such a BOMB to your wallet isn't it. But yo friends, my face so nice after the facial!!

Good news is, first trial treatment is only at RM188!!  It's like way way cheaper and definitely worth it to give it a try! Take some time off, care for your skin alright?

#Hair: Turning Ash Blue with Hoyu Professional at AM&PM Hair Saloon

Hello Everyone! I'm back with another hair colour review post after almost a decade! I'm pretty sure many of you (my friends) are super duper interested to read my hair reviews because I change my hair colour so freaking often and probably wonder if my hair is as dry as dead grass. Just to let you know, nope, my hair is still alive and just fine and lovely. lol


^ LOVELY HAIR^

For your information about my frequent hair colour change, I do not have a saloon or hairdresser that I always go to. In fact, all these years I have been hopping around various saloons. I should probably do a short summary review of the saloons I have been so you can pick the one you feel most suited for you if you're planning to get a hair makeover. (Maybe a post in the near future! Look forward okay?!)

Let's get to the point of the post now.

This time around, I'm invited to review on a new hair dye that recently drop in Malaysia, professionally done by a saloon in Klang.

Here's a little 
'Come With Me' Vlog & Review
on my little trip over AM&PM Hair Saloon for this makeover!

Totally awkward cause I never really speak in front of a camera other than posing,
  but i'm learning ok!
 PLEASE WATCH and appreciate my effort please hahahhaha.


Okay, if my blabberrishh is annoying or just impossible to understand, below is a clearer, written down information about what's going on.

Hoyu Professional Hair Dye

I recently got invited to review a hair colour/dye that recently arrived in Malaysia. This brand that recently launch here is called HOYU PROFESSIONAL and apparently have been a well established brand in Japan for more than 110 years. Since it's been around for more than 100 years, it should be doing some amazing innovations right?!

Hoyu, is a premier hair coloring company that aspires to bring healthy, radiant and vibrant fun colours to our lives! Best thing is that this product was somehow made longer lasting than any other hair dyes! Well, I just dyed it a few days back and I will definitely update you all on the colour after a few more washes. (Better check out my Instastory for an update okay!?

So far, the dye leaves a good soft and healthy radiant and shine on my hair. It took about 20 minutes (pretty fast processing time) to set into my hair. I'm also pleased that the pre-lightening was pleasant as well! According to the hairstylist, the pre-lightening was mixed with another product similar to Olaplex and Strongbond (I have once stated about the importance of this product during bleaching in my previous posts) that reduces the damage on the hair during bleach. I'm not too educated about this product much but from what I know is that it is a product from MoltoBene and all I can say from experience is that it's actually goddamn amazing.

Well, to be honest I did tell the hairdresser to not touch my scalp while bleaching my roots but usually even at this cause, it should sting my head too (from experience). But somewhat somehow, there weren't any burning and uncomfortable sensation!!! Totally AMAZING. I am so happy that my scalp is not burnt.. first time ever FYI.

AM & PM Hair Saloon

Speaking of the bleaching process earlier, I would say their technique for hair bleaching is actually damn good lor. First of all, I told them to not touch my scalp and they really listened! For the first time ever, my scalp was never in contact with bleach during pre-lightening but then, the end result was surprisingly neat,clean and good! There weren't even any black roots visible wtf! 

From my experience, I would say that this saloon is pretty good to go if you're up for a normal,wearable hair colour change. If you're looking for super vibrant 'hot pink' colours or if you're looking for a high fashion, one colour here and another colour there this that, then I don't think this will be a suitable place lol. All in all, I would say their technique in hair colouring is not 10/10 but maybe a 8/10! Definitely still worth to go to because trust me, I've been to worst!

I think this pretty much sum up my review for my hair change this round!


 Last emo selfie for ya'all xoxo

#Fashion & Travel: Cameron Highlands Lookbook featuring Bee

Just about a month back I was in Cameron Highlands! As usual, trying to perk this little trip up by making it look amazing, as though I actually traveled overseas in my Insta story, as well in pictures.

#Fashion: KITTIE YIYI FALL WINTER 2017 LAUNCH

 Full of Attitude.

Me. Kittie. Lumi

Well oh well! Kittie Yiyi is now back with another quirky but even more ready-to-wear collection. 

Inspired by the 50's, where American rock and roll was adopted by feisty females called the Teddy Girls. These girls were so cool back then, nothing sweet and fancy, just 帅 literally.

Mostly loose fitted (as usual), straight cut and easy to wear, the prints used are always so symbolic and adorable! This time round, Kittie herself picked the chicken as a print element as she relates them as cheeky, happy and free running. 

Well, I totally love all z looks! But here's a photo wall of the lookbook from the launch! Since I as PR'ing there and then, everyone thought that the collection is in fact more wearable compared to the previous.


The launch pretty much is free and easy, you can simply pick up your favourite item and just put it on for pictures!


Here we have amazing paintings painted by Alexandrea Yeo aka @d3rdsex (lol).. and the new Fall Winter 2017 collections! 


Here with Kittie herself. (aka my lao ban, and I wish my lao gong)


Totally into this jacket and coat. Even Lumi superrr dupperr lovesss itttt.


With Kendra 女神. She's wearing the green jacket and I'm wearing the super super duupperrr comfy chicken soup sweater. 


More posy posy photos of me in that comfy thing!! 


This one the colour super bomb. Hoodie checkered jacket. 


Super love that the colour so pop! 


Not forgetting a photo with my Muaachii that came all the way from Penang.

#Beauty: SUGAO is now in Malaysia!

I have heard so many good things about Sugao products since earlier of the year. Sugao originated from Japan and this is one of the products that aims for light and natural makeup instead of caking. 
One of the most exciting products I really wanted to try was the loose powder! My makeup artist friends really brag about the amaaazzingg-ness of the powder and I'm so excited to finally get my hands on them! Plus, they are in pink and the fonts made it cuter! 

 SUGAO do not have a wide range of products but they focused on these 4 products which are the CC cream, Lip tint, Cheek cream and Loose Powder.

The highlight product here is the Air Fit CC Cream.


From my experience, CC creams are usually pretty oily and runny, sometimes leaving an unpleasant grease on my face. However, this unique CC Cream has an Air Fit breathable formula, and as you can see in the image I've taken, it has a fluffy souffle-like texture! Totally didn't expect from a CC cream. They have 3 selection of CC cream to pick from which are Smooth, Moist and Pink Bright. I've received the one in Pink Bright. It may look pretty dry but nope, it's actually pretty hydrating. It just finishes off fluffy and powdery/velvety which means finishing off the cream with powder is not necessary. I have combination skin and it works pretty well! I'm sure it would work great on oily skin too but I'm not too sure about dry skin. 

 One of the best thing about this CC Cream is that it's like a 2 in one cream which includes color correcting and blurring visible pores which means it acts as a primer too! Amazingggg. On the side note, this CC Cream does not have any coverage, which is pretty sad because I have a lot's of dark spots so I have to cover them up with concealer separately.  

2-in-1 Cheek & Lip 


 I received mine in Active Orange. As swatched above, you can see that it's a nice shade of sunset orange. The texture itself is really easy to work with and definitely light and fluffy as well! 


Once blended, it's actually a really nice flush of orange, super duper natural too. I usually like to top it up with a powder blush to make the colour more intense but leaving it alone leaves a nice colour on the face!


Here's the little flush cheeks with this cheek cream. Definitely not heavy but very very light even though the colour is so vibrant before blending.

As for using it for the lips, I really don't see any colour on my lips... perhaps my lips are the same shade? haha (ps. lips on picture above is not using the cheek and lip cream)

Chiffon Powder 


The packaging so simple but somehow it seriously just melts my heart! So adorable I want to bring it everywhere and just take it out to touch up my oily face anytime and  everytime haha


Oil-absorbing for a shine free face, it diffuses light and brightens skin. As you can see above, the loose powder is super duper fine. It's so fine that when my brush picks it up, the powder just flies away because it's so light and fine! But gosh, the feeling is amazing on my face. You won't feel it cakey at all. Ps. a fluffy puff is included as well!

Lip Tint


I have mix feelings for these tints that's because I generally like having a pop of colour on my lips instead of having it natural. This tints definitely feels different than any other tints I've tried. It's watery liquid texture creates translucent plump lips with a tint of natural color, kind of like leaving a swatch of jelly on the lip. 


Top: Juicy Red
Bottom: Sweet Pink 

Earlier I said I have mix feelings because of the Juicy Red tint. I was expecting a more red,RED but instead it looks more like a tangy orange when swatched. But as you can see, it's definitely very watery which will make your lips feel weightless and comfortable. Totally for those that hates the eeky feeling of lipsticks on the lips like me. (But I grew to get use to it actually lol)


The tint will not dry on it's own so I left it on for about 30 seconds+ and wipe off with a tissue. Like what Sugao is aiming for, it's very natural and weightless.

Here is how it is swatched on my lips


 #Juicy Red

I'm really not into this red, it's not boom enough for me haha.


#Sweet Pink

On the other hand, this sweet pink is actually really nice! It's like jelly on the lips and leave a subtle hint of pink in real life. Somehow it looks more vibrant in pictures ! 


Dear Sugao, my makeup natural enough bo?


Throwback to Sugao event few weeks back! Super Pink, I SUPERRR Like!
