Althea Beauty Box | The Romantic Date Box

5.17.2017

Hello! Despite last post's rant, I'm here with something new to share! It's the Althea's Romantic Date Box, which consists good quality products in full size! I've been using ALL the products for the past two weeks and am here to give you my thoughts on them. To be honest, even when I'm not on a date, I'll use all of them



What's in the box:

1. Real Fresh Rose Petal Moisture Mask
NATURE REPUBLIC
"I'm so in love with this. It is the perfect pre-makeup mask that I've been seeking for ages! Slap this on before putting makeup for baby soft skin, then your foundation will glide on seamlessly!"



2. Face Mix Primer Color Cushion #lavender
TONY MOLY 
"Lavender color is known to brighten the skin. I tap this on my highest point of my face such as cheek bone, nose bridge and forehead to give a natural glow before putting on my usual BB cushion foundation. I skip highlighting when using this because it gives the feel that I'm glowing from inside! Same like how you're glowing from within when in love!" 


3. Sugarball Cushion Cheek Color #4
ATRIAUM
"I finally found a cheek color that I love and use everyday! It's pigmented yet you can control how much you want it to show by using the cushion. UGH I'M OBSESSED! I've been loving that pigmented cheek flush lately. Apply generously because cheek color tend to fade first. Also, it's a cream formula so don't worry about cakey makeup!"



4. Magic Long Long Lash Mascara
HOPE GIRL 
"Living up to the name, it really does make my lash long long! It's not heavy at all so I don't feel tired after wearing it. This is a great one for those who likes natural lengthened lashes instead of those spidery ones. The only this is that it takes some time to dry, but good thing, it doesn't dry out too quickly in the tube!"


5. Matte Lip #Josephine
CHIYA Y CHICO
"My lips but better, in a cooler red brownish tone. Mad love how it sits on my lips! What can I say, easy to reapply and tiny enough to keep in my clutch for a night date!"


6. Perfume in Hand Cream #CherryBlossom
CALMIA
"Keeping those hands moisturized so he would hold my hands more! Nah, he'll still hold them even if they are wrinkly, but I don't want that so, here's a light weight hand cream to keep in your purse!"


7. Nail Laquer #Shower 
WITH SHYAN
"I did my nails to show you how it looks like on my hands :P It's a gorgeous ocean blue color with a ashy grey tone. I don't usually apply nail polish because I have no patience on waiting. But this dries super fast and is so easy to apply! (did my laundry right after it dries and it didn't budge)"


8. Mangowhite Body Mist 
IT'S SKIN 
"This became my must-have item in my gym bag too. It's smells amazing! (I'm such a sucker for things that smells good) But this is boyfriend-approved! He loved it too! I like spraying it on my hair for the scent to linger a little longer since it's a body mist. Ok spray more!"


That's it! Althea came out with a lot of different beauty boxes recently which all of them are amazing! If you are someone like me where you're always scared to try new products, try getting these boxes. They make great gifts too!

Struggles

5.11.2017

Hey. My blog has been quiet lately and I'm not gonna lie or give excuses. I've been feeling a little down lately by the huge events that's coming up. I'm excited to what's ahead of me but at the same time, I'm drained by the worries, which is getting unhealthy. 

I love this space. This is my space. Everything I post here is absolutely what I stand by, including paid posts and collaboration with brands. However, it's still an exhausting activity. I kinda drag myself to write posts, and especially when brands reach out to me (some where I'm not too familiar with), I feel like blogging is an obligation. 

With that said, I feel like I'm struggling to be a good blogger while maintaining my full-time job. hah. oh not forgetting to spend time with people I love and care about. Losing the passion to blog is one of last thing I want to happen. That's why here's a detox post/period. 

First, I'm gonna still do reviews. But in a casual and light-hearted way. So I'm gonna post more on Instagram (follow come come! @minniechangg). Next, vlogging. I do find it easier for me to talk about certain thoughts in video form, so head over to that corner too (Youtube ID @minniechang). 


Moving to Ipoh has been amazing. Shifting to dance/fitness as a full-time job is great. But I still miss KL. The pace and the vibe. The opportunities. 

I'm moving back soon. Probably in August. That's another thing I'm worrying. 
It's ok everyone. 
Everything happens for a reason. 
Everything is going fine.

My Favorite Night Routine ft KAO Megrhythm

4.21.2017







So you think singing lullaby is enough to set a good night sleep for me? It doesn't work that way. Here's how I picture a perfect night setup: 

First, my favorite rose scent needs to be set. While that happens, I like to move on to my whole night skincare routine, probably watch a few vlogs while doing so. Then smuggled in my softest blankie and pillows, I like to read a little in my comfiest (and cutest) pyjama set. When the eyelids are gradually dropping, I'll go do my latest favorite night routine: putting on a steam eye mask for a good night sleep. Last but not least, having someone to think of, and kiss goodnight to :3


ah now you ask what's a steam eye mask?
HERE YOU GO. 




The Kao Megrhythm is a health and beauty product from Japan. I'm familiar with KAO because I've been using their Biore makeup remover and sunscreen for the longest time, and never knew they came up with this new thing! 

So, what it does is that it has a self-warming technology that acts as a steam eye mask. The warmth is not too intense but gives a really good "massaging" effect once it's on. By far my favorite scent is Fresh Rose because, well, I'm digging this scent lately :P I've been using it every once a week, especially when I have my contact lenses on or I've been working on the computer for a long day. Oh, I'll definitely pack this along on long car/plane rides too because it doubles as eye mask! 

If you do have difficulty in sleeping (which I do on some days), you may get this at your nearest Aeon Wellness or Watsons for RM23 per box (with 5 pieces in it). 

Or you prefer online shopping, here's where you can get them! It will be available from 24th April onwards:
