This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_20200916_1124456015821281273617139.jpg

Hello lovelies…

Please be honest with me, ladies…how much do you care about your hair? As much as you care about you facial skin?

Well…I was!

I mean…why bother? I wore hijab to schools and till this current 8 to 5 job, I wear hijab to work.

I was born with a quite thick straight hair (I’m blessed). But somehow…my hair was dull, frizzy and coarse. Due to my negligence, my hair’s getting damaged and what worst could happened…they started falling out rampantly as I get older.

And until at this certain point, I started seeking out for help on preventing me from getting bald. I started eating healthy foods and distressed myself from works and life and most importantly…get enough sleep.

Yup…it works!

And to deal with my damaged and unmanageable hair, I started investing on a good hair care products. My look out for shampoos and conditioners which are free from Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), paraben and gluten. My preference is Verb Products brand, of course! (I did even blog about it before. Click here to read.)

As to top up my hair care routine, I pampered them with a hair mask. Yes, girls…hair needs to wear mask too!

So, I indulged myself into this multiple award wining Coco and Eve: Like A Virgin Hair Masque…which I never regret!

This hair masque is build in 5-in-1 formula that helps to repair my hair from inside-out. It:

  1. Revives dry and damaged hair caused by styling, heat, dyes and the environment;
  2. Restores hair to its pure state like it used to be;
  3. Repairs hair from the inside and out;
  4. Conditions from root to tip; and
  5. Tames frizz and split ends.

Each 212 ml hair masque contains:

Aqua (water), cetearyl alcohol, cocos nucifera (coconut) fruit extract, dimethicone, behentrimonium chloride, parfum, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, sodium benzoate, ficus carica (fig) fruit extract, argania spinosa (argan) kernel oil, shea butter ethyl esters, caryocar brasiliense fruit oil, ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, hydrolyzed linseed extract, leuconostoc/radish root ferment filtrate, phenoxyethanol, cetrimonium chloride,potassium sorbate, ethylhexylglycerin, selaginella lepidophylla extract, saccharomyces/silicon ferment, saccharomyces/iron ferment, saccharomyces/magnesium ferment, saccharomyces/copper ferment, saccharomyces/zinc ferment, tocopherol, lactobacillus ferment, benzyl alcohol, benzyl salicylate, coumarin, limonene, linalool.

As you can see from the list, the key ingredients for this are:

  • Coconut: Add shines to the hair. It also strengthen and repair the hair by preventing hair breakage and split ends;
  • Fig: moisturise and help detangle the hair;
  • Shea butter: moisturise and help detangle the hair;
  • Lin seed: improves the gloss and texture; and

And they proudly declare their hair masque are:

Phthalate Free

This a simple tutorial on applying the masque:

My verdict: This is a savior to my damaged hair. This masque is a bit pricey, i.e MYR 180 (USD 43.58) compared to any other drugstore hair masques you could find in local store, but it worth every Ringgit! I started seeing result right after my first use. The results are getting better and better after several usage.

My! Oh! My!

I couldn’t imagine how amazing my hair would be after a month of usage! Probably as silky smooth as the mulberry silk 😉

The masque has a pleasant subtle sweet coconutty fragrance which isn’t overpowering. It lingered until my next wash. The texture is thick and creamy and has a good level of slip. It easily distributed throughout my hair with the help from the tangle tamer brush which was provided in the package. I’m over satisfied with this purchase and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product to you, girls…if you want to stay away from hair misery.

Gifts from God

Hello lovelies…

Alhamdulillah…I could say that God has sprinkled some luck potion on me. This month I was blessed with prizes and gifts from unexpected ways!

I joined a few online contests and I went to a few events lately and to my disbelief, I won most of them.

I won Laneige’s Sleeping masks online contests, I won a Fossil’s purse during the Eh! Magazine x Fossil workshop and I won a Victoria Sloane’s handbag during the Ms.Read x Women:Girls Fashion That Fits All workshop.

This could be my best month of year 2019.

Thank You, Allah!

Butterfly Project’s Health x Wellness Workshop 2019

Hello lovelies…

To those who are following me on my Instagram, you girls already know that I went to The Spa and Gym at Hilton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur a few weeks ago (August 17th, 2019) for the Butterfly Project’s Health x Wellness Workshop. Well…if you haven’t followed my IG yet, maybe you should for my impromptu live feeds.

Hohoho…

farahpinkladydotcom_Butterfly_Project_Health x Wellness_Workshop

There were 30 bloggers/vloggers a.k.a influencers participating in the workshop. We have formed into three (3) groups and there were three (3)  mind blowing sessions for us to complete.

The workshop began with a welcoming speech by Miss Tammy Lim, the founder of the Butterfly Project Organization.

The warming up session conducted by the trainer from The Spa & Gym came right after the speech. We completed the exercise eventhough some of us were not wearing sports attire (including me).

farahpinkladydotcom_Butterfly_Project_Health x Wellness_Workshop_4

As the exercise session ended, we moved according to our groups.

And these are the three (3) mind, body and spirit sessions we joined accordingly:

  1. The Self-Care Session by Minc.Care;
  2. Vegan Beauty Mask Workshop by Naturally Handmade; and
  3. Aromatherapy Oil-blending Workshop by Plant Origins.

The Self-Care Session by Minc.Care

Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/minc.care/

It was a counseling session coached by the founder of Mic.Care, Miss Minnie Chang. Miss Minnie Chang is currently pursuing her Masters degree in Counseling with the background of Bachelor degree in Psychology.

During the session, we discussed on every obstacles that we had. Bear in mind, Miss Minnie Chang is not the the person to solve every issue we discussed, but she guided and initiated us to voice up our perspective on every issues we discussed. The individual is the one who decides which is the best solution for her problem(s).

Later that I learned from the session that everybody in this world has their own problem. The problem varies from every sort of factors. It could be family, relationship, love, career, studies, health, etc. These problems could bring stress, depression and in the worst case scenario, some people choose to end up their life just to get away from all her/his problem(s). 

Seek for a good listener and a good secret keeper that would listen to all your struggle. It’s okay if she/he couldn’t even solve your problem, but trust me…it would lessen your burden after sharing it. I feel so thankful for who I am today that I am always surrounded by good concern people.

Thank you, God!

The second session I attended was the DIY clay mask conducted by Miss Bavani Gopala Krishnan, the founder of Naturally Handmade.

There were so many jars of clay and superfoods for us to mix depending on our skin conditions. Each of them has their own benefits to our skin. As for my sensitive skin, I combined rhassoul clay with tangerine and pomegranate. These are the benefits of my DIY clay mask:

  • Rhassoul clay: It has a mildly abrasive texture that makes it great for exfoliating those dead cells from the surface of the skin to leave it soft and silky. It is suitable for sensitive skin;
  • Tangerine powder: It works as antioxidants that fight from skin damaged and it is enriched with Vitamin C. It brighten our skin and removes oil and bacteria; and
  • Calendula powder: It has antiseptic properties, which are helpful for treating wounds and preventing acne. The extract stimulates collagen production and moistens our skin.

Aromatherapy Oil-blending Workshop by Dashindra Siva, Signature Market

Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/signaturemarket/

This is the last session of the day. This session is presented by Miss Dashindra Siva. She seemed to be familiar among us as she is one of the community members.

She taught us the art of blending essential oils. Like the clays, each oil has its own benefit. These essential oils could definitely influence your mood. For example, lavender oil is the one you should look for if you need to feel calm and relax.

I mixed lavender with rose geranium and grapefruit hoping that I would feel romantically calm and fresh.

The good thing about the essential oils from the Plant Origin is that they are 100% natural and plant-based with a growing variety of scents ranging from floral and citrusy to woody. So, fret not…this oils wouldn’t poison you.

In summary, the event was fun and very informative. Kudos to the organizer to successfully handle the workshop like a pro! Thank you for having me in such a memorable workshop like this. I hope there will be more interesting workshops coming up in the future.

Althea A’Bloom Moisturizing Watermelon Sheet Mask

Hello lovelies…

I read so many reviews on the Althea A’Bloom Moisturizing Watermelon mask sheet from Althea Angels. The reviews are all too good to be true which lead curiosity in me on how effective this product could be.

And so…I purchased the masks during the 10+10 mask promotion thru the Althea website.

This mask is claimed to pack a punch of hydration and moisturization for a juicy chok chok skin that bounce. It has the power of deep hydration with a concentrated charge of ampoule essence. Each sheet contains 25g of essence that instantly fuels up & locks moisture by building soft moisture film on the skin surface.

This mask is suitable for all skin types. It is slightly acidic which helps to rebalance the pH level that has been damaged by the washing or peeling process. This eco-friendly mask sheet is made from natural eucalyptus tree. The texture is soft and and thin yet it won’t easily torn. It sits perfectly on to the skin like a second skin.

The key ingredients of this mask are Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Fruit Extract which is well known for water nourishment to the skin and Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract that helps for calming. The other active ingredients are:

  1. Moisturizing: Trehalose, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sodium Hyaluronate;
  2. Calming: Ocimum Basilicum (Basil); and
  3. Anti microbial: Acmella Oleracea Extractea Extract.

Every application leaves an intense hydration and cooling sensation to my skin. I noticed a few changes on my skin after several usages. My skin is getting slightly brighter and glowing. The mask scent is mild and very relaxing. It is the best to be used at night after you had a stressful day.

The A’Bloom fruits sheet mask is at retail for RM 2 (USD 0.48) and it comes in other fragrances too, which are:

  • Avocado: anti-aging;
  • Lemon: skin brightening and even skintone; and
  • Peach: anti-blemish and calming redness.
