It’s Skin – Power 10 Formula Essence and Hanaka Charcoal Mask Review

Hermo.my is another good online shopping website for you to purchase cosmetic and beauty products. I was introduced to this online shopping website by my ex-colleague. With her helps, i bought 3 bottles of It’s skin power 10 formula essences and hanaka charcoal pores reduce facial mask.

It’s Skin – Power 10 Formula Essence

I have been using the essences everyday for a month.
It’s Skin – Power 10 Formula PO Effector for oil control and to tighten pores but it didn’t work well on my skin. My skin is still oily and pores are big and visible. The essence is thick, it takes a little time to get absorbed by the skin.

It’s Skin – Power 10 Formula VE Effector for radiant and reduce red marks. Works well on my face, moisturizing and the red marks after acne is disappearing.

It’s Skin – Power 10 Formula GF Effector for hydration and moisturizing. Another good essence from It’s skin. GF effector is quite watery and moisture, it absorbs really quickly and is not sticky.

I have been using this Hanaka charcoal mask once a week together with Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. I use Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque to draw out the impurities from my pores first, rinse with warm water and then apply Hanaka charcoal mask to rinse away blackheads and shrink enlarged pores. Blackhead is getting lesser and the enlarged pores on my nose have shrunk down a little.

I bought all these products with discount during Hermo.my 2 years anniversary sales. Cheap and effective facial products. Happynya.

Iherb Haul- Online order from Malaysia

This is my second purchase from iherb. I managed to save a lot of money from the first purchase due to first timer discount code and discount from above $60 order.

This time, I bought few bottles of my daily supplements and cosmetic from ELF. I made the purchase on May 24, 2014, and iherb took a few days to process my order. My parcel went to few countries before it arrived to Malaysia. I received my parcel on June 02, 2014. Safe and sound. But the invoice is missing, so I guess custom opened my parcel and took the invoice. All of my products are in good conditions and no open box trace.

ELF- Summer Color Nail Polish

I bought one makeup kit at only 5 dollars! 3 dollars for the face powder brush, 3 dollars for earth brown tone eyeshadows and another 3 dollars for the gorgeous summer color nail polish!

I am happy with my purchase from iherbs, the eyelash curler from ELF is cheap and nice to use. The brown eyeshadows is too dark for my eyes but i use it for my eyebrow shaping now. The brush is ok and I like the nail polish very much!

See! See! The color is so nice! Bright and easy to apply.

How to return Zalora products?

Today is 11th June 2014, my bank account will go to zero in 1 more week, my salary is all gone and I left Rm200 to survive through this month.

Enough of the sadness, I bought these from Zalora.

I bought a basic dress, a pair of ballerina and a mng tee.

But too bad, the ballerina size is too small for my feet and the mng tee is too big even for a M size! So, i need to return these 2 products back to Zalora.

First, fill in the reason why you want to return the products on the invoice.

Then put back the products into the Zalora box. If you purchase only clothes, you will get a plastic parcel bag from Zalora. But sometimes, they might forget to put it in your parcel. In that case, you need to buy the parcel bag from Poslaju or put the return products inside a box and buy the cheapest brown paper, the price should be below Rm1. 1 long paper roll, same size as mahjong paper. Wrap the box with the brown paper and bring to Pos office. Remember to put the invoice inside the box too.

Repack! Fill in the details on the poslaju slip.

Bring to pos office > Get a number > Wait till your turn > Tell the officer you want to return Zalora > You will be asked to fill in a pink form with Zalora address and your signature > Wait the officer processing your parcel > Get the copy of the poslaju slip > Go back/ go home > Wait 2-5 days ( depends your location) for Zalora to process your returns. > Get back store credits > Buy again!

That’s it, easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Hopefully, there will be a discount code for me to do next purchase. I really like the shoes, but I need to get 1 size bigger. I bought the shoes with 15% discount and Zalora will only return the price after discount as store credits.

ps: You are welcome to use this code to get 15% off from your order.

It’s time for Zalora again!

I think i am addicted to Zalora. I’ve browsing through their website almost everyday to check for new items/ discounted goodies. Behold, below is my new haul form Zalora this month.

Scuba Tux Blazer by River Island

Scuba Tux Blazer by River Island

I’ve been working for 2 years plus and still do not have a proper blazer so this is my first blazer and i like it. At first, i wanted to buy Mango Blazer because it was on sales! 30% off for the blazer, but i missed the sale time. So, i browse through again to get another one. When i saw this lovely piece was on 40% sales, without a second thought, i put this in my cart.

 Short Sleeved 2in1 Floral Dress  by Kei and Kori

Short Sleeved 2in1 Floral Dress by Kei and Kori

I thought this is a fake 2 pieces dress but it is real 2 pieces, combo of a dress and a knitted tops. I like the flora dress, it’s very cute and match well with the tops.

I am happy the blazer can goes well with most of the dresses in my wardrobe.

Perforated Lace Up Oxford  by Ezra

Perforated Lace Up Oxford by Ezra

I love this pair of shoes. It’s very comfy, do not have to wear socks and looks great with dresses.

I’ve made a return for a dress that is out of my expectation last 2 weeks and I am very pleased that Zalora responded my request promptly and suggested to return me with money but not store credits. The belt that comes along with the dress was stuck together and i don’t really like the dress after trying it out.

I am impressed with the after sale service because i do not know any other online or offline retail shops that offer this kind of service. I don’t like, i return it and get back same amount of store credit so i can get other stuff.

ps: I would like to thank Ms Chew, Ms Sharifah & Ms Nurdyana for using the code.

Luxola Malaysia Review

I came across to Luxola because I accidentally click on the ad sense when browsing some websites. I thought Luxola is similar to asos.com which requires credit card or paypal to make purchase and wait for few weeks to get the items. But you can make the purchase with your visa debit card and Luxola do ships parcel to Malaysia! Besides, you can enjoy free shipping if you purchase more than Rm40. This is the cheapest minimum purchase i ever encounter to get free shipping.

Luxola carries many brands, mostly western brands and haven’t make it in Asian market yet.

I was skeptical at first but i was convinced by the professionalism of the website. Clean and simple layout, easy browsing, clear description, good resolution images and professional payment system.

There are vegan and halal logo too if you are concern in this matter. This is the first time i saw beauty product website has halal or vegan label too.

I like to check reviews before making any purchase, Luxola has a review section to let you check on the review. Don’t worry, the review is genuinely written by buyers because Luxola offers rewards for the reviewer no matter the review is good or bad. * Updated @ 13/6/2014 – I would like to clarify > I found out that luxola didn’t actually publish all the good or bad product reviews. I did wrote my honest experiences with few of the products ( not those kind or praise words ) and luxola didn’t publish my reviews. You can google the review of the product you want to buy first, do not rely on the reviews written on luxola.

Choose your items, go to cart page, think twice before making payment.

I’ve have been checking out on the website even though I do not need anything. In the end…. I made my first purchase in Luxola.

Luxola Shopping Experience

Luxola Shopping Experience

I bought 1 lip balm which looks like a lip treatment for me and 1 bottle of rose-hip & hibiscus facial serum. Parcel arrived after 1 working day and was delivered from Singapore. Very fast shipping.

Both of the products work fine and relatively cheap. I am happy to test new products. Now, i am adding something i do not need to my cart again.
