Manuka Ville - Manuka Honey UMF 15+

Manuka Ville Manuka Honey UMF 15+ 500g RM 159.00
( Group Deal promotion price RM 79, 2nd bottle RM 121 )

Earlier this week, I've shared about the benefits of manuka honey for both skin and health. In hopes to heal my irritable bowel syndrome, I managed to purchase these two bottle of manuka honey through a group deal a few months back.

I am a bit sceptical on dealing with any promotions on group deals site. However, to my surprise, the process was pretty easy with no hiccups. I was extremely pleased too with the customer service from Manuka Ville as they personally send my purchases right to my doorstep!  Not only that, dealing with them is a breeze ( they are very pleasant and friendly too ) and they are quick to respond to any questions pertaining to the promotion or their products. I praised them because these kind of customer services is a rare find in Malaysia!

It is my first time I heard of Manuka Ville, so I did a little background check on them before I made the purchase. Surprisingly, they are from an established background.

Benefits of Manuka Honey for Skin and Health

I have heard of manuka honey many, many years ago but didn't really invest in it. One of the main reasons is, it comes with a high price tag per bottle. I am so used to buying honey that cost me less than MYR 10 and honestly, I don't see myself buying manuka honey because..well..honey is honey right? 

Last few months ago, I found myself purchasing this because my doctor advised me that consuming manuka honey will help me in my irritable bowel syndrome. Moreover, I managed to get a good deal via deal mates and why not...just give it a try. It was my first time ever buying from those group deals sites and to my surprise, it was pretty simple and thank God, the distributor was very nice and helpful. I will talk more about this in my next post.

As I begin to do more research on manuka honey, I was surprised that it has so many benefits. Manuka honey is a special type of honey that is derived from a particular floral source in New Zealand, that has been found to have extraordinary healing properties. It has been used successfully to cure...

Seasonal Skin Changes

Picture source from web

How many of us believe that we would still experience the seasonal changes ( Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter ) even though we live in a tropical country like Malaysia?

I don't know how far this is true but I was rather intrigued by this when someone pointed out this to me a few years ago. I didn't really think about that until recently, I see a few changes on my skin. At this time, it is a period of transition from autumn to winter, where the air tends to be drier. I noticed that my skin, overall, feels much drier and rather dull than in the month of May-July. Funny isn't it? 

I am not sure if the cause is due to the seasonal changes or not. All I know is that I need to concentrate on hydration at this period. My skin regime is basically the same as updated in the month of October except that I incorporate my lotion mask back to my skin care regime. And boy, it does help!

Do you clean your hairbrush often?

Image taken from source

How many of us clean our hairbrushes often? If some do, do you clean them weekly? Yearly? Or once every 2 years?

Unfortunately, I am not brought up with the habit of cleaning my brush often. In 'those' days, I would usually resort to purchase a new one once my brush is a little wear off. Not very environmentally friendly, isn't it? And not wise either, I may add.

I have with me my old faithful Vidal Sasson brush, which I have been using for 10 years and has travelled with me wherever I go. Surprisingly, it is still in very, very good condition...despite that I haven't clean it since I bought it. I do, occasionally clear any hair remnants from my brush and rinse it off with water, but that's about it.*Sheepish smile* I am ashamed to have committed a serious offence, in the unhygienic category.

Review: Burt's Bees Citrus & Ginger Root Body Wash

Burt's Bees Citrus & Ginger Root Body Wash 350ml RM 55.90

Burt's Bees in Malaysia have this recycling program that runs on every 31st of the month, where you can get 20% discount on the next purchase with every empty bottle returned. I like that they have this program because it encourages on recycling and also...I get a discount! :)

I purchased this when I ran out of my favourite Baby Bees Body Wash and the promoter also promises that all my 'daki-daki' ( accumulated dead skin ) will be washed off by this. Sounds very exaggerated, isn't it? Now let's put this to a test and see if it works, just like the promoter said, shall we?

How to Use It

Review: Marie Veronique Skin Lightening Vitamin C Supplement ( New Formula )

MVO Skin Lightening Vitamin C Supplement 50 capsules USD 60

I was given a sample of this during my first haul of MVO products. I tried it and...I liked it!! I quickly purchase this in full size in my next haul and to my surprise, they have reformulated this as many users have a hard time getting the Vitamin C to dissolve easily.

According to MVO, this new Vitamin C supplements contain the same ingredients but are ground finer, are grit free, and completely dissolve into the serums to provide a seamless application providing the highest quality and freshest delivery of Vitamin C.

Now, on to my reviews...

Yoghurt with Bedak Sejuk ( Cooling Rice Powder ) Mask

Those who read my blog regularly knows that I have this love affair with yoghurt mask. I have been consistantly using this as my mask and it has become a staple mask for me. My skin has reaped great benefits from it, both in moisturization and evening out my skin tone too.

On the other hand, I love the benefits of rice powder as well. I have read some site that recommended adding rice powder to yoghurt as it claims to reduce wrinkles, blemishes and helps in brightening. So I have decided to amped up my yoghurt mask with my bedak sejuk pastilles.

Organic/ Natural Makeup with Lisa Eldridge

In my previous post, I mentioned that my makeup items have been stacking up, right? Well, confession time. In the past weeks, I've invested in some lipsticks, eye shadows and even cream blushes. Wanna know the reason?

Yes, I have been hooked to watching Lisa Eldridge videos and she is truly amazing! Her makeup techniques are so effortless and at the same time, looking natural too. In this post, I am sharing a video which she did on using organic/ natural makeup.

Which part of your body do you spend the most on?

Image source from digitalpicturezone.com

I post this question because of late, I realised that I've been spending quite a significant amount on money ever since I started blogging and paying more attention to beauty products. I seldom go on an impulsive buying spree but still....it has taken a slight toll on my credit card. Sigh! I then start to re-examine and try to see which part that I spend the most on.

The answer is...
