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?
 
Source
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

Willow Tree Bistro @ Desa Seri Hartamas


Over the weekend, Joe and I were invited by Foodz to a food review at Willow Tree Bistro at Desa Seri Hartamas.
 
 
 
 
The restaurant is owned by a very friendly Korean lady, Gina Chun, who used to own a boutique at Bangsar Shopping Centre. You'll be able to spot some of the collections she's selling at the side of the restaurant.

It took us some time to locate the restaurant, as it's not located by the main road. For those of you who know where Souled Out in Hartamas is, the restaurant is located at the corner of the row of shops exactly behind Souled Out.

Homemade bread
The kitchen is led by Chef Hadi, a Moroccan chef who has been working London and brought the Mediterranean feel to his British influenced menu.
