[Beauty] Seri Emas Facial Soap

Hello, my lovely readers! Today I would like to share with you my thoughts on facial soap.
 
Before I start my review, I would like to thank Seri Emas International for providing me the opportunity to review their product.
 
So, let's look at the soap...


Seri Emas Facial Soap is a 100% handmade soap, produced locally and it's halal. It consist 50% honey, with a combination of natural herbs, cinnamon, coconut oil, turmeric and pomegranate extract. Seri Emas claimed the soap was suitable for oily, sensitive, and acne skin; and you will be able to see the results after 7 days of using the facial soap.
 
 
Due to the pomegranate extract in the facial soap, it was red in colour with some "black spot". The size is smaller than the usual soap, and it's handy. It's easy to lather too, and a little of the foam goes a long way.
 
Unfortunately, the facial soap has a typical unpleasant scent of soap. I was expecting some honey or pomegranate scent, but none. Also, after rinsing off the foam, I felt some tightness to my skin. I have sensitive and combination skin, and I felt that the soap is too drying for my skin. After trying out the soap for couple of times, I could still feel the tightness every time I rinsed off the foam. I don't really see much result on my face, apart that I felt it's less dull after using the soap.
 
My Verdict
I felt the soap is more suitable for people with oily skin. So, if you have oily skin and have no issues with the "soapy" scent, you may want to consider this facial soap.

Plus Bazaar @ POP, Jaya One


Source
Recently, I got invited by to a very special bazaar held in POP, Jaya One - Plus Bazaar by Fat is Fab.
 
Fat if Fab, or FIF, is a non-profit community group that promotes self-confidence through self-image. The group was founded by like-minded people, who wanted to educate the public on the wrong perceptions of being a plus size. At the same time, they wanted to encourage people who are overweight, shouldn't be ashamed of their looks, but instead embrace it proudly.
 
Though I'm not a plus size myself, but I find there were hardly any bazaars or shopping malls cater for plus size consumers; and this always make me frown. Hence, I was excited when I came across this bazaar. They are the first and only bazaar with plus size as the theme, and managed to gather quite a few local entrepreneurs - ranging from clothes to food, all under one roof for this 2 days bazaar.
 
Though I was busy going from stalls to stalls to explore some goodies, I managed to snap some photos.

REALASH: Eyelash Enhancer

Source
Do you ever wish to have such long and pretty natural eyelashes? Being an Asian myself, I understand how difficult it is for us to be "blessed" with such eyelashes naturally. Hence, ever since young, I always envy people with long, thick and curl eyelashes.
 
Since I do not have such pretty lashes, mascara became a very essential part of my makeup routine. Unfortunately, we all know that by constantly curling our eyelashes and applying mascara is actually harming our lashes; and if we do not remove the mascara thoroughly, it will do even more harm to our eyelashes. Tough, huh? >.<
 
No worry! REALASH has come to the rescue!!
 
 
Thanks to TUT Diet Supplements, I was given the product to test out their eyelash enhancer. REALASH - the world's best eyelash enhancer from France, that has took the cosmetic world by storm and highly recommended by demanding bloggers! It's able to give you that dream celebrity look - luxuriously thick eyelashes, lengthened and seductively curved to the MAX. Sounds amazing, doesn't it?

I did some research of REALASH and got excited when I read on their results. It seems like it's just the solution that I've been searching for years.
 
How Does REALASH Work?
Typically, our lashes need 30 days to grow and most of the times, our mature eyelashes fall before the new ones are fully grown. REALASH helps the eyelashes to grow faster and stronger.
 
It is 100% safe as they use substances that work synergistically to protect our delicate skin around the eyes:
  • Natural mango and papaya fruit extracts
  • Bitter orange flowers extract
  • Sabal palm leaves extract
  • Horsetail, flax and calamus extracts - great sources of Vitamins E and C!
Worry that the product might not suit you? REALASH is intended for all women and is recommended to ladies whose eyelashes are short or weak by nature, even for sensitive eyes.
 
 
It comes in a size of 3ml and can be used up to approximately 4-5 months. The tip of the brush is moderately soft and thin, and the application is super easy:
  1. Gently remove your makeup carefully and thoroughly
  2. Apply REALASH EYELASH ENHANCER on your upper eyelid as if you are putting on eyeliner. NOTE: ONLY upper eyelid!
  3. Voila! You are done
To really try out the product, I've took some photos before I started my treatment - with and without mascara.
 

I'll be doing another post on my results after trying out the product for a month. Fingers cross and hope that I'll achieve those luxuriously thick and long curly eyelashes! *wink*
 
Price: RM 169
Size: 3ml
