Product Review : Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream

Thank you Natta Cosme for introducing this all purpose skin cream to me! I was quite curious when I noticed the word ‘Magic’ printed on the packaging.


However I believed this must be something good and effective, by reading the numbers of positive reviews done by these celebrities. (refer attachments below)

em_html_plugs.jpg (JPEG Image, 806 × 17575 pixels) - Mozilla Firefox 8292013 13954 PMThis Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream sounds pretty convincing isn’t it?

Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream, the People’s Choice, is a phenomenal healing balm with legendary powers due to its unique mixture of all natural ingredients derived only from living plants and organisms. Egyptian Magic All-Purpose Skin Cream, The People’s Choice, has been on the market since August 1991 with a solid track record, a loyal word of mouth following, and twice the healing power for half the price of conventional skin creams.

IMG_7226Alright…let me briefly name the ingredients. Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream contains olive oil, bees wax, honey, bee pollen, royal jelly, bee propolis. Product of United States, a small compact container complete with natural ingredients, no additives, preservatives, fragrances, chemicals or parabens. All these ingredients have good moisturizing effect.

IMG_7224Some frequently asked questions that you may want to know. (source from

What can I use Egyptian Magic Skin Cream for?

The real question is, what can’t you use it for? We’ve been making Egyptian Magic for over twenty years, and our loyal customers keep surprising us with new creative uses. Egyptian Magic is one jar that contains a face cream, an eye gel, a hair masque, burn and wound relief, a baby cream, a shaving balm and anything else you can think of! We’ve even heard from veterinarians who use it on horses after surgery. If you think you’ve got a unique use, head over to our facebook or twitter and let everyone know about it!

How should I apply Egyptian Magic?

Because Egyptian Magic is a solidified, oil-based product, you will see the best results if you soften it by warming it up before applying it. Take a small amount and rub it in your hands until it softens and turns into oil, then gently apply to your skin. A little Egyptian Magic goes a long way. If you are applying to your hair, warm it up and then gently rub it into the ends of your hair. You can also apply it to your hair and scalp as a hair mask. Just let it sit for an hour or more, and then wash it out with shampoo. Dab it on your face to highlight your cheekbones with a natural glow, or apply under your eyes to help with dark circles and dehydrated tissue. Gently apply over wet skin after a shower or bath for all-over hydration.

Is Egyptian Magic safe to use on my baby?

Egyptian Magic is completely safe to use on babies and infants. We’ve heard from mothers who use Egyptian Magic for diaper rash, stretch marks, and cracked nipples. However, as with any skin care product, please consult your pediatrician before use.

I’ve heard that Egyptian Magic can treat eczema? Is that true?

Every day, we hear from customers who seen incredible results using Egyptian Magic on their eczema, psoriasis and other skin ailments. Egyptian Magic is not a medicine and we make no medical claims for the product. But we encourage you to read some of the testimonials on our website. We also offer a 100% money back guarantee so you can try Egyptian Magic risk free and see how it works for you.

Does Egyptian Magic work on acne?

There is a lot of debate about whether to use oil-based or oil-free products on acne. A popular belief is that using oil-based products on your skin causes your body to stop producing oils, and results in smooth, clear skin. The testimonials from our customers indicate that Egyptian Magic is very effective in treating acne and some acne scarring, but we do not claim that Egyptian Magic is a treatment for acne.


IMG_7230Do you know Vaseline?? The smell and texture is nearly similar. Because its fragrance free, so do not expect it to have any fruity or rosy smell. LOL! Its also abit greasy, that is why it works well as a moisturizing cream.

I’ve tested and also witness the result on me during this few situations.

Situation 1 : When I was cooking or precisely frying; some hot oil accidentally pop on my hand. Not alot, but it turned red. Without hesitation, I quickly applied a small amount of Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream. Surprisingly it soothes the pain. I continue applying it for few rounds, it recovers the following day.

Situation 2 : My toe nails look so dry and unhealthy. So I tried applying a layer of Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream on my toe nails. The next day, my toe nails look revive.

Situation 3 : I started to use Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream as my night cream after my face cleansing. I took a small amount and rub on my palms before patting it on my face. I woke up the next morning looking radiant and my face looks less dull. It really works better than some of my facial mask.

Magic CreamOther than that; it can also use as make up remover. I tested using a waterproof eyeliner. Swipe a small amount of Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream on to that particular area. I use a  piece of facial cotton to gently wipe off.

I would say this multipurpose cream is really good especially when you are traveling. It works like a first aid cream. All in one. As sunscreen, moisturizer, healing balm also as make up remover. Of course these are for external use only!! Now I’ll make sure I have this on hand when I travel. Next; I’m gonna try it for stretch marks 😉

Product Price : RM79.90 (59ml)

Product Review : NARUKO NRK Cat Eyes Mask Set

2013-05-27 18.55.40

When I have eye bags, panda eyes (dark eye circle) due to lack of sleep or often sleep late, I know its time to do something with my eyes. Other than paying attention to our face most of the time… sometimes we may have neglected our eyes. Alright…its never too late do work on it.

When age comes into consideration, fine lines and anti-aging does matters.

Naruko Eye Mask
Very cute packaging.

Naruko Vitamin K Up-All-Night Eye Mask improves dark circles and eye circulation while providing long-lasting moisture.  The fragile capillaries surrounding the eye area often allow blood to leak into the skin, which causes under-eye circles. The use of Vitamin K puts an end to this seepage by controlling blood clotting. Plus it helps to lighten melanin that makes circles appear more prominent.

2013-05-08 23.57.32Thin and cotton like sheet mask for both eyes. The eye sheet mask is soaking wet with transparent essence. Its not sticky. While the extra essence which left in the sachet…I use it to apply over my elbows and knees. No wastage. 😉

2013-07-019Kindly read the instruction at the back of the sachet. It will be so uncool if you place the eye mask on the wrong direction. LOL! Because the mask was so wet….it kinda slip down slightly below my eyes.

Directions: After cleansing, apply eye mask with the pointy side placed near the inner corner of the eyes. Smooth evenly and wait for 15-20 minutes. Remove mask and continue with usual skincare routine.


  • Whitens
  • Brightens
  • Increases Circulation
  • Moisturizes

Verdict : No irritation. No strong fragrance smell. Which is a good thing. Cos I really hate mask with strong fragrance smell. However other than feeling hydrated and moisturized, it doesn’t show much improvement on my dark eye circle during first usage. (Maybe my dark eye circle was quite bad T_T).

Naruko Eye Mask1
Purrrr….really cute packaging too.

Naruko Peptide Purrty Kitty-Eye Lifting Eye Mask fortifies the elasticity and firmness of the eye area while helping to diminish fine lines. This eye mask was formulated to naturally plump out existing wrinkles and prevent new ones with the use of peptides. Peptides have the ability to stimulate collagen production, thus creating a firmer and more rejuvenated appearance.

2013-07-08 22.31.24Naruko Peptide Purrty Kitty-Eye Lifting Eye Mask comes with ear loop. Its much secure and firm having ear loop. Just like a hanger. And now…do I look like a catwoman? hehe…. Erm..pls. don’t tell me you sees Ninja Turtle in me. tsk….


Directions: After cleansing, secure ear loop of eye mask behind ears. Then smooth mask evenly around eyes and wait for 15-20 minutes. Remove mask and continue with usual skincare routine.


  • Anti-Wrinkle
  • Increases Elastin
  • Firms
  • Rejuvenates

Verdict : No irritation. No strong fragrance smell too. Which is a good thing. I somehow felt Naruko Peptide Purrty Kitty-Eye Lifting Eye Mask works on me. Leaving me with firmer and brighter eye. Because of its design… it not just nourishes my under eye but also my upper eye as well.

My advise: Please use it regularly in order to maintain the good skin. Same goes to everything..If you find it workable and suits you, its better to use them consistently to see a better effect.

Naruko Cat Eyes Mask Set consists of (1x) Naruko Peptide Purrty Kitty-Eye Lifting Eye Mask and (1x) Naruko Vitamin K Up-All-Night Eye Mask are now priced at RM6.50 (limited time offer)

MIVVA Box June 2013 – Colourific

Its already month of July….so fast. But now only I’m reviewing about MIVVA Box June 2013. Blame it on the lazy bug lor….hehe….

This is my first purchase of beauty box from MIVVA. Most of the time I read positive reviews about their beauty box. When I received a newsletter from MIVVA on the sneak peek of this particular month’s content, I got tempted and I told myself I must get it! I knew its gonna be more make up products than skincare products.

When I received the parcel, I was excited to check out the content.

Contained 4 items in a box.

June Box’s Theme : Colourific. Something to do with colors.

A product description card to give us some information about each product.

I like the mini black rose packaging. Looking chic and cute! Initially I got scared when I saw the color shade is so red. I’ve never use such red tone for my lip before. Surprisingly the outcome is not as bad as I thought. The color look natural on my lip. And it has a glossy finishes.

Product Review : Facial Sheet Mask by Naruko

Hooray…today I’m going to do a review on a new series of facial sheet mask by Naruko. Do you like sheet masks?

NARUKO Brand Story - Mozilla Firefox 5312013 45640 PM

For Naruko fans…do you agree with the above?

IMG_6963When do you actually apply a facial sheet mask? I applied my facial sheet mask after exfoliating (facial scrub). Why do I need exfoliating? To remove dead skin cells and also blackheads. This way eventually show a better result.

Cleanse → Exfoliate → Facial Mask.

Pick a mask that meets your necessity. For example if you want to emphasize on Moisturizing, Anti-Aging, Firming, Whitening or Pore Refining.

A. HA Hydro-Lock Moisturizing Mask


HA Hydro-Lock Moisturizing Mask emphasized on moisturizing.

2013-05-07 23.29.35The sheet mask is quite thin and rich with serum. Best to store your masks in a cool place.

2013-05-07 23.33.13It fits my *fat face ^_^… Feeling cooling and had a relaxing facial mask session 😉

en_nrk_mandarin_orange_and_pineapple_pore_refining_mask_big-001How to apply a sheet mask. Leave it on your face for around 15-20 minutes. While waiting, I can watch my tv drama series 😉

The sheet mask in the sachet is soaking with generous amount of serum. I did not waste or threw it away…instead, I applied it on my shoulders and knees.

Naruko Sheet Mask3I felt my skin much smoother and softer.

Price : RM5.90 RM3.00

B. Q10 Age-Defying Brightening Mask


Q10 Age-Defying Brightening Mask emphasized on Anti-Aging, improve skin dullness.

Naruko Sheet Mask1Instantly brighter and fairer skin. Also softer and smoother skin.

C. Mandarin Orange & Pineapple Pore Refining Mask

en_nrk_mandarin_orange_and_pineapple_pore_refining_mask_bigMandarin Orange & Pineapple Pore Refining Mask minimizes pores and controls sebum secretion, delivering bright and smooth skin.

Naruko Sheet MaskPerhaps my pores aren’t that big. So the result was barely visible.

Price : RM5.90 RM3.00

D. Arbutin Intense Brightening Mask

Naruko-Arbutin-Intense-Brightening-Mask-1Arbutin Intense Brightening Mask emphasized on brightening and soothing.

E. VC Brightening & Deep Hydrating Mask


VC Brightening & Deep Hydrating Mask emphasized on Brightening and Anti-Aging.

Price : RM5.90 RM3.00

Verdict : These masks helped to improve the complexion, making it clearer and brighter looking!  Face masks have deep cleansing and conditioning action on the skin, are great in refreshing tired skin or soothe troubled skin. You can use it daily…but I’m just using for may be twice a week. Hehe….I admit..sometimes I am lazy. LOL! However my preferred choice would be A) HA Hydro-Lock Moisturizing Mask and B) Q10 Age-Defying Brightening Mask. They showed significant result on me.

Product Review : Shiseido Aquair Deep Moist Shampoo & Conditioner

Hair dyes, perming, straightening with much chemical ingredients often damage our hair. In resultant; dry and dull looking hair.

Let me share my hair type:-

Dyed, long, thick, coarse,  frizzy and dry. I heard people said frequently drying your hair with a hair dryer eventually damage your hair. I’ve also avoided that. Yet my hair is still frizzy. I often need to apply some hair serum before leaving home, to keep my hair look neater. I’ve tried several shampoo brands which can be easily purchase from drugstore. But yet to meet any near to perfect.

Recently I was introduced to Shiseido Aquair Deep Moist Shampoo & Conditioner. I hope this new haircare from Shiseido able to restore my hair. Although its not really that serious yet, but I do not wish to spend big bucks doing treatments in a hair saloon.

Bag of Love : April Edition

I chose to continue subscribing Bag of Love for April Edition because I was quite satisfied with their Debut Bag.

However there was a hiccup for this month’s bag. Let me explain further…


I happily received my parcel and opened it. After opening the parcel and removing the bag out ..I noticed the bag was dripping. I received a drenched bag 😦

I PM-ed Mimi; the founder for Bag of Love informing her about my drenched bag together with a photo attached. Mimi felt bad and apologized on the matter. She informed to send me another new bag with all the contents. I received another new on bag the following day with proper protection to the ‘leaking culprit’. Its okay Mimi….you’ve sent me another new bag and I’m happy enough 😉


April was Earth Month. matches the Earth Month theme, Bag of Love has came up with this made of bleach-free canvas and the little Bag of Love tag (inside) is of recycled non-woven material.

PS: Mimi…I am borrowing your idea to photograph this bag on the bed green grass ^_^

bag of love

One of the reason why I like Bag of Love…because they will reveal a sneak peek on the participating brands for each month. So, if you like it..then you subscribe it. That’s what I did…I’ll usually wait for the sneak peek before subscribing on that particular month. HAHA!


Mimi (the cartoon character) has changed her dress to green to match the theme; The Green Bag. So, lets go green for this post! 😉


A short summary about the content. Simple and easy to read.


Due to overwhelming response from the previous bag, this month’s bag came with another brush from definite. Oh yay…another brush added to my collection. Moreover its from definite!

Defite Contour Brush, Full Size – RM88

Use on the face to apply, blend or contour powder products.


This was the ‘leaking culprit’! LOL! The scent smells like one of my essential oil. Calm and soothing. Above size is 50ml.

The Body Shop Quiet Night Dreamy Pillow & Body Mist, 100ml – RM59

Spray onto the body, pillow or sheets before bedtime.


Not really familiar with this brand. This is the first time I’m experiencing it. It seems Phyto products are the pioneers and leaders in therapeutic care for hair through plants. Ohh…that’s very natural isn’t it? It comes in an aluminum bottle. Runny texture..smell isn’t too strong either. Above size is 50ml

Phytojoba Intense Hydrating Shampoo, 200ml – RM88


Okay…this brand is new to me too..Now I sounded so ‘katak dibawah tempurung’ LOL! Formulated on the basis of DECLÉOR’S iconic ingredient, Neroli, and combining five ingenious plants. I like the scent. It smells nice. However I felt its abit tad oily for my skin.

Decleor Hydra Floral Moisturizing Cream, 50ml – RM271

Apply in the morning and evening to cleansed face and neck.


I am a fan of BB creams. I don’t mind having more than 1. hehe….

Creamy texture. Very natural shade. Well, for the coverage I’ll just rate 3/5.

Nuxe Brightening BB Cream SPF30/PA+++, 30ml – RM120

Dot a pea-sized amount on forehead, nose, chin and cheeks then blend the cream gently.


A handy sample pack. Very rich texture. It does smells abit like butter. Suitable for dry skin.

Burt’s Bee Richly Replenishing Cocoa & Cupuacu Butters Body Lotion, 170ml – RM62.80

Apply liberally to body as needed.


Includes a Decleor facial voucher. Luckily only one. Because I hardly use these vouchers.

Verdict : This is their second bag. I am still satisfied with my goods. What makes me like Bag of Love. Mainly because of the bag (different designs for every month), and the content…worth more than what I’m paying.

What is the price? (all inclusive postage)

Monthly – RM39.90/ month

Quarterly – RM119.70 (for 3 months)

Annually – RM478.80 (for 12 months and get the following 1 month for free)

Product Review : NARUKO Lip Repairing & Soothing Lip Balm

Ladies….what are the must have items in you handbag?

For me, my handbag gotto have my wallet, handphone, tissue, face powder and also not forgetting lip balm! Lip balm has became part of my essential. I’ll make sure I carry a lip balm when I go out. I have few of them and I actually place it in different bags so that I won’t forget to carry along when I switches handbags. The reason why I did that is because I’m quite forgetful at times. LOL!


I was introduced to Naruko‘s lip balm. A popular brand from Taiwan. It comes in a set of 2. (Lip Repairing & Soothing Lip Balm).


Both ingredients are printed at the back of its package.

2013-05-08 18.32.14

Just like any other lip balms…it comes in a convenient stick. *easy to carry*

I felt that lip balm is important especially when you spend long hours in an air-cond room. It able to keep our lip moist. You know what…I have this really bad habit. When my lip is dry, I’ll tend to peel. *itchy fingers*


(A) NRK Vitamin ACE Ageless Lip Balm

[ Description ]
Improves fine lines and signs of aging for the lips using vitamin A,C,and E.

(Fine lines and signs of aging often occur when you are expose under the sun)

[ Ingredients ]
Polyisobutene, Caprylic /Capric Triglyceride,Ethylhexyl Palmitate,Squalane,Lanolin,Petrolatum,Ozokerite,Polyethylene,Beeswax,Jojoba Oil,Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, Oilve Oil, Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil, Citrus Medica Limonum, Peppermint,Tocopheryl Acetate,Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate,Retinyl Palmitate, Cl 19140, Cl 15985

(B) NRK HA Intense Hydrating Lip Balm

[ Description ]
Relieves dryness for the lips by providing and locking in moisture.

(Our lip often dry when we stay in air-cond room for long hours, also dehydrated can be the cause of dryness)

[ Ingredients ]
Polyisobutene,Ozokerite,Polyethylene,Beeswax,Jojoba Oil,Crambe Abyssinica Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Rosa Rubiginosa Seed Oil, Peppermint, Fragance,PEG-8 Isostearate,Titanium Dioxide,Sodium Hyaluronate.


So, the above is a photo of before and after application. In result; moist, glossy and plump lip. The texture, not too thick nor creamy. But just nice to have a nice coat to keep my lip moist.

Like : Jojoba oil is one of the listed ingredient. Which I like most. Although it contain peppermint, but it is not strong..very minimal. Does not have fragrant scent, more like natural flavors. My lip look healthier with these lip balms.

Dislike : I wish they could combine both effect of hydrating and anti-aging into 1.

Price : RM12.90/set of 2 through Natta Cosme.

New to “Bag of Love”~Debut Bag

Recently there are a numbers of Beauty Boxes available for subscription. They all come with a minimal monthly subscription fee. But what you get in box would be quite mysterious. You will only know the content after you unbox it. *I like surprises*

Hence, Bag of Love is doing the same thing. The main difference is that the contents are placed in a bag rather than a box. Bag of Love is something new to me. It arrived since March and therefore they had this bag call “Debut Bag”.

This is my first subscription. I actually got attracted by the bag when they posted a teaser photo of the bag on their Facebook page. I thought if someone would to put effort on the look of its bag, I assumed the content wouldn’t be disappointing too.

Received my parcel within a week after purchase. My box was in a good condition. So, I can recycle it for other usage. Many complained about their rip off or dented box after opening the parcel. Probably they need to change the courier service. However I wouldn’t bother much about the ripping off box…as long as the bag and content inside are in good condition. Right?

This is the look of the bag which I’ve mentioned above. I can use the bag to keep my make up stuffs or storing my skincare products when I go for travel. Look alike Victoria Secret’s color. *LIKE*

All 5 products are nicely placed in a bubble wrap for better protection.

As promised; “With a subscription, you get a beautiful bag of 5 deluxe sample-size beauty products – ranging from hair care to skincare, body care, make up, nails and fragrances – delivered to your doorstep monthly so you get to sample the products before buying it. “

A thank you card together with cute Mi Mi from Bag of Love. At the back of this card, its the brief explanation on each product in the bag.

Mi Mi also promised each and every month, she will come up with a different bag design. I guess…that is why they are named ‘Bag of Love’. You know what….I like bags…no matter how many I have. LOL!

There are more………….RM30 Gift Voucher on Murad products and also a complimentary movie pass to watch “The Host” which will be screening on beginning of April.

Murad Vitalic Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser, 150ml, RM148

Use 2 pumps on damp face. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Here, I got a deluxe size of 50ml. This cleanser came at the right time! As I am about to replenish my finishing cleanser. I’ve heard alot of good reviews about Murad. Now I get to experience it!

Revlon Professional Color Sublime Treatment, 200ml, RM88

How to use: Coat hair from roots to tips after shampooing. Leave on for 5 minutes then rinse.

Lunasol Skin Fusing Powder Foundation SPF20/PA++, 10.5g, RM140

Comes in 6 shades. I usually choose liquid foundation over powder foundation. That is because powder foundation often gave me this powdery or uneven face. However there is an exception to Lunasol Skin Fusing Powder Foundation by Kanebo. It able to control my T-zone area which often oily, shin free look for long hours. I applied 2 layers for a better coverage. Furthermore the powder texture is very smooth.

Definite Face Blending Brush, RM98

How to use:For a great finishing touch, sweep a loose powder over face with this brush.

WOW! I am so happy to actually receive a full size brush from the well known Definite Cosmetic! It is a good quality brush. Swipe over your face and you can actually feel that its very soft and not rough at all.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire EDT, 50ml, RM248

A sample size of EDT by Guerlain. The bottle is quite nice hor…

This is an EDT. So, do not expect the smell will last long hours. But I do like the scent of it. Not too strong and very lady like scent.

Conclusion : This is my first time experiencing brands like Kanebo, Murad, Benefit and Guerlain. For just paying RM39.90, but I am getting content worth more than RM100 and I get to try all these popular brands. I’m quite satisfied with the debut bag. I wish Bag of Love could remain its quality assurance and bring us more good brands. Especially on giving out deluxe or full sizes. 😉

What is the price? (all inclusive postage)

Monthly – RM39.90/ month

Quarterly – RM119.70 (for 3 months)

Annually – RM478.80 (for 12 months and get the following 1 month for free)

Product Review : Yadah Skincare

Introducing Yadah, a new skincare brand from Korea arrived in Malaysia.

Korea is well known for skincare.

Korean gals are so pweetee… I want to look pweeteee with beautiful radiant skin too…. *envy*

girls-generation-1011-hd7Look how pweetee they are… (Girls Generation).

Yadah-and-Yom-Yom-BioLet me introduce you to Yadah and her alien pet Yom Yom. Such adorable characters use for the brand. I must admit that I often fall for nice or cute packaging. In this case…they had successfully attracted me! haha….

brandstoryWhat I like about Yadah is that, they are using natural ingredients. Which is good comparing to some strong chemical products.

20130309_170130I decided to purchase their Starter Kit [Vitamin Range] from Hermo to sample it myself. The starter kit is priced at RM25. Consist of:-

1.  2*Vitamin Emulsion (trial size) (8ml)

Anti-wrinkle, anti-oxidant, brightening, UV sun protection, moisturising, sebum control, and the best part of all, it comes in pink and yellow undertones for natural-looking skin coverage.

Above I’m using “Light Beige”. I feel that their BB cream blends well on my skin, it gave me the natural look. Moreover its not too creamy, your face won’t look so oily.


YADAH Cleansing Nose Pack
10pcs  for RM19

1) Lightly wet your nose. Then remove the adhesive strip.

2) Place it over your nose and wait for 15-20 minutes.

3) Peel off strip when times up. Ouch…I felt quite pain while peeling it leh…Ermm…are those tiny strands on the strip are my blackheads? Not really visible. I think Biore’s nose pack is more effective ^_^

Verdict : Yadah provides an affordable skincare range. I think I will purchase the full size of BB Cream and also the Vitamin Emulsion.
