Bag of Love-Go, Girl, Go! November Edition

This is the second time I subscribed Bag of Love. They always attracted me to subscribed their bag with teaser and hints in their facebook. I am not really a fans of bag but this time, I subscribed it because they announced that there will be a Panasonic product in the bag. I search in Panasonic website for possible item to include in the bag. My wild guess will be tweezer, eyelashes curler or electronic toothbrush.





At first I thought most probably it will be eyelashes curler because it is closer to a beauty item. Guess what's inside the bag?!







It is a electronic toothbrush!!!!! I was thrill when I saw this!!! My sister is studying dental now and she keep emphasize how good is a electronic toothbrush. She actually bought one herself!






I would say Bag of Love is becoming more and more impressive for me. I always keep an eye on their facebook and wait for their teaser. I admit it is really fun and exciting!







Panasonic Pocket Doltz Toothbrush (FULL SIZE)
RM 99


This is totally worth it for every penny I spent on this month bag! As I say above I was thrill to see this. I never thought I will get a electronic toothbrush and I can't wait to try it out! The down side is that it need battery to work. I would prefer the one which is chargeable one but never mind! I am still very hype up to get this and I don't care what other product I am going to get in the bag!!

Updates: I just found out there is various colour for this electronic toothbrush including black and orange! Well... I am damn happy to get silver colour!!! Not a fans of orange colour and black don't look good on the toothbrush as well! hahaha...







Clarins Double Serum
RM 280 for 30ml


I used to work in Clarins during my holidays so I know how good Clarins products are. They included 7 days trial of serum and also a little secret after the last pack. There is a redemption card at the back where we can get free skin consultation and also 2 pieces of gift set worth RM 60.








Elizabeth Arden Red Door Aura EDT
RM 275 for 100ml


It is a sample vial and a voucher for coming Christmas set. I am really particular in perfume and this have floral and woody scent as the same time.





Dove Hair Therapy Hair Fall Rescue Shampoo (FULL SIZE)
RM 4.40 for 90ml
Dove Hair Therapy Hair Fall Rescue Conditioner (FULL SIZE)
RM 4.40 for 80ml


My biggest problem for hair is hair fall. I am so happy to get this 2 products as I have never tried their shampoo range before. I only use Dove body bath before. My hair fall problem is really the biggest headache. My hair fall every second and minutes. Luckily I have thick hair gene so my hair is still very thick despite my serious hair fall problem and I have tonnes of baby hair.





Lastly, a full size of Olay Regenerist Revitalising Serum for 50ml from which I won from the contest organised by Bag of Love!








I do think the did a great job in having contest and interacting their subscribers. I am really attract to this found out we get updates and teaser from their facebook. It is very interesting to see how they interact. They have contest every month after sending out that month's bag. The products for giveaway usually related to the product in last bag, which from a sample size product, you may have the chance to get a full size product.

I started to like Bag of Love very much. There is possibility I might start subscribe Bag of Love constantly in future. They have 3 full sizes products this month including a electronic toothbrush worth RM 99!!! How rare for a beauty bag to do this with only RM 39.90 for a month subscription! Although subscribing a beauty box/bag is not about full size, but who don't want full size product?!


p/s: whoever want the Levi's bag or missed this month's bag may ask from me. I don't think I'll use the bag. Just that you need to bare the postage fee. I'll give it to you for free!






MIVVA beauty box November 2013 Edition- BFF sleepover kit

MIVVA box has been very impressive so far. I have subscribed since last February without missing any month. This month's theme will be BFF sleepover kit.





There are 5 items in this month's box and MIVVA has back to their signature--a little surprise gift this month.




Product included:
Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream
Neula 5 in 1 Oil Control Face Lotion (FULL SIZE)
Facial Essence Collagen Mask (FULL SIZE)
Stage Nail Colour (FULL SIZE)
ONL Dermost Moistay Cream





Antipodes Joyful Hand & Body Cream
RM 149 for 120ml


Antipodes cream has been very good actually. It does not have sticky feeling after applying it like any other hand and body cream product. I like it very much as I don't like product that make my hands feel sticky after applying it. It also has a pleasant smell and rich texture. They also included a RM 20 gift voucher for Antipodes products.





Neula 5 in 1 Oil Control Face Lotion (FULL SIZE)
RM 22.90 for 30ml


I wasn't expecting this as few days before MIVVA post out the beauty box, they had a teaser on their facebook and instagram. From the photo, obviously there will be a tube cleanser and I was expecting that. I am very happy to received the face lotion instead of cleanser. I have lots of cleanser waiting me to use it up.

I tried this product soon after I received it as it claims to give moisturize without greasiness. 5 in 1 as in anti-pimple, oil control, pores minimizer, rejuvenate and soothes. Pimples, pores and oily face are always my main concern as I have combination skin type. My face tends to get oily very frequent.

Out of my surprise, after using it for 1 week, I found that it is very effective, especially in day time. I experiment it in a week. Every morning after face wash and routine skin care, I'll apply Neula Oil Control Face Lotion before sunscreen. Then I'll apply my make up. Usually my make up only last until noon, which is around 12pm and it started to melt and I will feel oiliness on my face, even though I am using a foundation claimed to be matte for 24 hours. After using this face lotion, my make up will hold up to 3-4pm. My face don't oiled up so fast now. I am so happy!!

I'll definitely buy this product myself after I finished up this bottle. It is so affordable as it is only RM 22.90 and it is effective. I do wish their BB cream have the same effect as well.




Facial Essence Collagen Mask (FULL SIZE)
RM 198.80 for 8 sheets


Honestly, I have never heard of this brand before. I used it on the day I received it. I think it just have the same effect as any other mask. I do feel a bit expensive for a collagen mask.




Stage Nail Colour (FULL SIZE)
RM 35 for 11ml


I got the nail colour No. 12 which was the same as what I bought from Stage a year back. Such a coincident that MIVVA gave me the same colour. My old one has dried up and it just arrived at the right time! I like the colour and intensity but I wish it can dry up faster.




ONL Dermost Moistay Cream
RM 144.90 for 60ml
ONL Dermost Moistay Fresh Gel Cream
RM 144.90 for 60ml


I haven't try on this and hopefully it is suitable for my skin type. Hope that it won't become oily after I use it. I might try Gel Cream first as it is more suitable for my oily skin.





And finally, the little gift from MIVVA team! They included a bath loofah, which I wanted to buy for quite some time yet I am lazy to get it. So happy cause they are like mind reader and know what I need at the right time. That is why I like MIVVA the most compare to any other beauty box/bag.





Sometimes I do thought of trying other beauty box and stop subscribing MIVVA box because I am still a student and have limited fund for extra stuff. So I sometime fall into dilemma in choosing which to subscribe. However, I still think MIVVA is the best. Seem like they have less interaction in facebook with their subscribers. I do wish if they announce when they deliver their parcel so that I am able to expect when the parcel reach my home. I also do wish to have some teaser or mystery hint of product included in the box before they send it out. This is just my little suggestion of making the beauty box better than others.

MIVVA beauty box October 2013 Edition- Snow White

Mirror mirror on my hand, who is the fairest in the land?


This month MIVVA beauty box theme is 'Snow White'. However, I do find this month content is the most bored among all these months that I have subscribed. Honestly, I do feel disappointed. Because it seem like they are just being careless of this month's items.





There are 5 items in the box. There is no special gift from MIVVA team this month unlike previous month, they don't fail to give a little surprise from themselves and not included in the product description.





Product included:
Beautymate Birdnests & Lilium Candidum Firming Rejuvenate Nano Mask (FULL SIZE)
Hydra 24 Creacked Heel Cream
Unico Pearl Scar Cream
Secretleaf Argan Hydrating Cleanser (FULL SIZE)
ONL Ecopure White Balance Skin Toner and Emulsion






Beautymate Birdnests & Lilium Candidum Firming Rejuvenate Nano Mask (FULL SIZE)
RM 49.90 for 7pcs

3rd mask from Beautymate in MIVVA box. It is very moisturizing and feel so soft after using it.





Hydra 24 Cracked Heel Cream
RM 23.90 for 50g

Lucky me that I don't have cracked heel. I will give this to whoever who wants it!





Unico Pearl Scar Cream
RM 198.80 for 15g

I am actually very happy to get this scar cream. But I don't know how to use it because there is no instruction on using it. Should it be use as skin care or make up? Because of the texture, the skin tend to become very white after using it. Kinda like foundation instead. It feel weird to use as skin care. So... I haven't use it because I don't know how to use.







Secretleaf Argan Hydrating Cleanser (FULL SIZE)
RM 21.90 for 95ml

I like this full size cleanser! I got the Secretleaf Pure Oil Series 01 in MIVVA beauty box March 2013 edition and finish the whole bottle of cleanser last month! So great to have this. This is why I like MIVVA beauty box. They seem like know what I need.





ONL Ecopure White Balance Skin Toner and Emulsion
RM 89.90 for 120 ml
ONL Oceaniq 3d Antiwrinkle Total Solution CC
RM 149.90 for 35 ml

Lastly, another Ecopure product.





This month's MIVVA box is a little disappointing. I think they need to keep it up since there is more and more other beauty box and beauty bags around. Introduce more interesting product and decrease the frequency of keep repeating same brand again and again. They lost their signature this month of giving extra gift in their box like previously. They keep advertise about the ePure Jelly Mask in their facebook but they didn't include it in this month box so it's kinda contraindicate a bit for me. They should give us try then we might buy it from their sales last week. After all, they are still my top choice of subscribing a beauty box because of the full size products included in the beauty box.

September birthday girl celebration

I celebrated my birthday with my Melaka friends on the end of September. They actually treat me and Jl as both of us are September birthday girl. Since I am craving for Korean Food so I say I wanted to eat it and they decided to go to Daorae.


Daorae is not so stingy about their side dishes. They will just top up whenever we ask for it and doesn't really count how many they gave us unlike some other restaurant. We enjoy really much. So full after having it! Thank you very much to my friends who treat us this great meal! @christine + jeslyn + lichen


















Group photo is so outdated so we take video instead!
