Beauty Review: Skin Soul Natural Volume Attack Mascara

Thanks to Skinsoul for the beauty product, now I have one more mascara to add into my beauty collection. Before anything let me has a brief introduction about the brand Skin Soul.

Skin Soul is a Malaysian brand, developed by it's founder Dr Joaane Au Yong. The products of Skin Soul's are aim to suit to even the most sensitive skin ever, hence Skin Soul products is

1. 100% Paraben free and lead free. 
An ingredient Ashitaba replace the role of Paraben in perservative. Ashitaba 明日葉 also create a stable microbe-resistant formula safe for the most sensitive skin. I searched online, Ashitaba has wholesome level of Vitamin B12, and Chalconoid, a natural phenol has shown anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti- bacteria and anti-tumor properties. 

2. Only most organic sources of Ashitaba are selected

3. The aqua use in their product is the Swiss Glacial Water. 
Swiss Glacial water is one of the natural source of mineral water, hydrating and has many other positive effect on our skin.

4. Skin Soul Aesthetic Cosmetics
is free from mineral oils and animal derived ingredients. Each of the products was formulated in different countries. Like the mascara today was formulated in Italy.


Now, talking about the Mascara, what make this so special from any other mascara is that it could help to promote the growth of your eye lashes!

How the mascara help to promote the growth of eye lashes?
Natural Mulberry Extract in the mascara help to boost the immune system, and it can increase the performance of kidney and liver detox, anti-oxidants , accerelate healing and so on. The theory of mulberry helps to lengthen the eye lashes in a way it promote the metabolism hence it rejuvenates hair folliciles, promote hair growth and prevents hair fall.

Alright, now let's see my results after 10 days of using Skin Soul Natural Volume Attack Mascara =D

I purposely apply mascara to my right eyelashes after 3 days my left eye applied. This is because I can see the difference myself without looking into the photos 10 days before and after. 

On my third day, I feel the effect is quite dramatic, (you might couldn't see it here, I observe into mirror almost every night ler.Also avoiding the technical error like taken with different angle). Scaring later after 10 days , my left eyes is would be inbalance with right eye, so I started to apply to both my eye after 3 days. 

So, here you can obviously see that my left eyelashes is longer a bit than my right eyelashes. 

 Right eye: After 9 days of mascara application. My eyelashes has lengthen about 30% - 50%. certain spot like eye lashes near the pilca semilunaris only grow 30% because it's  the place that I always ignore when I am in rush. So you can really see the dramatic effect on the middle part of eyelashes.

 Left eye : Previously, the root of eye lashes is think and only thin as the eyelashes curve outward, but now my eyelashes was growing, lengthening, volumizing. The biggest difference that this happen is I found it easier to reach the root of eye lashes , and I can apply the mascara more evenly since the lengthening of my eyelashes.


I learnt that some of those with long eyelashes hardly see the difference. But those with normal length of eyelash like me can sense the difference. Initially I can feel the dramatic difference, but as time passes by, I guess my eyelashes is become longer so could hardly sense the different. Also, because I believe that the mulberry extract will helps in growing my eyelashes, so I apply the mascara from the root of eyelashes, and curve outward. Apply this everyday, you can see the difference 3-5 days later. =D

SS2 Restoran Loong Seng Dim Sum

 Prety or not? My camera really did a good job.

Talking about the past raya weekend. Usually our family went to travel during raya. This time my parents came to KL because I was having internship there. We stayed in hotel nearby, Hotel 99. And the next morning, we have our breakfast here. A good place to have some dim sum in SS2 area. Overall, the food was delicious, I not sure about the price, because we were not given a receipt upon paying then.

 It was a Saturday morning. and what draw us here is the amount of crowd. The amount of people was too much, not only several tables were lining up on the roadside, some of the big group still have to wait, and it has first floor space for dining too.

 I actually quite like this food heater, It contain the flaky crispy egg tart!  Egg tart available at Rm 1.80 for 1.

 Wu Kok (Deep fried Yam Puff) with flavour peas and minced pork inside.  Rm 2 per pieces.

Most of the food here, were priced at RM 3.80 for a mini metal plate.

 Nom Nom Nom Nom Nom~~~ Since there was too much people at the ground floor, we were placed at the first floor. I feel like eating at the ground floor is better, because you get to eat the fresh from overn food, like the first floor.

The waiter will come with a huge ratten basket of dim sum for you to choose. Which it might not be the entire range of food. =(

 Their pan fried raddish cake, sesame ball were all perfectly make. Though it's fresh from oven. Serving hot as well.

 Aubergine stuff with fish cake. 

I am a porridge person, their porridge were not bad too. With salted egg , century egg, minced pork and other. Their rice is boil to real smooth texture. Remind me the rich and mushy porridge from KTZ in SS2 as well. 

 It's enjoying to have a chill Longan Tou Fu Fa while having hot dim sum as well. This dessert is pleasantly sweet, available at Rm 3.80 per bowl.

 Now, there is another choice of place for breakfast in PJ area. Definitely , I will not come here alone. Perhaps going with a brunch of friends? And this restaurant open until 2.30pm (3.30pm on Sat & Sun), so it's a good news even if you wake up late too. Came even make a lunch here.

Ban Sabuy Chainam, Like A VIP in Amphawa Homestay overlooking River Meklong

This homestay is for Thai Residents only. 

10 moo.2 rongheap Bangkontee Samut Songkhram 75120, Amphawa, Amphawa (Samut Songkhram), Thailand 

Booked through Agoda

A continue post from my Bangkok trip Day 1. 

We stayed in Amphawa district,  in the Province of Samut Songkhram. We stayed here because we were going to the floating market right after this. That would be our first attraction in Bangkok-HUahin  (BHV) vacation.  

This post would be dedicated to the most wonderful accomodation during our BHV. Our accomodation for the first night is a homestay named Ban Sabuy Chainam. This homestay is for Thai Residents only by the way. 

Fish eye lens given from my friend!! 

The bed itself is a bit hard, but the blanket is soft and fluffy. Overall, it's a pleasant slumber the night before. 

 Not only it's a vintage wooden house (that help to mediate the extreme temperature), our homestay overlook the River Meklong.

 Bathroom is simple, new and functional. Water heater working well.

Room equipped with TV, Fridge, Table and chair. Wardrobe and mirror. It's a simple room anyway. But the best thing is we have the entire house by our own!

Say hi to River Meklong!! DO you realise there is one small river branches in the middle of the picture. It is where Bang Noi floating market held every weekend. (Click the pic to enlarge see it)

 The morning view from our room.

Night view is equally mesmerizing , extra breezy and relax.

 The outlook of our room, just look like those in beach. I told you , the facility here is quite comprehensive. Wifi is working fast as well.

The homestay itself has an extended deck, that is big big plus point! And the deck is so clean, you can see any of the dirt or dust on the wooden plank. 

 The outlook of our homestay. Wooden, Vintage. Breath-taking.

 And I soon understand why the deck is so clean. I guess is there is someone who mop the floor everyday. The owner really always maintain the homestay at tip-top condition. In term of facilities, cleaniness, functionality , and all these really satisfied us. That the fatigue of us of the previous night travelling the whole day was fully recovered after the good night slumber

The living room which we obviously didnt use it. Cause we need to go floating market soon after our breakfast. 

Talking about the breakfast, our stay here come with breakfast too! It's not an ordinary breakfast, but a superb breakfast by the local. 

Our breakfast is delicious pork belly soup and rice. A soup rice with a lot of lovely condiments. that each of the condiments is best complement the meal. 
 the boss really thinking for her guest. Because even from a small napkin that is layered on the food to maintain the hygience that prompt me appreciate from the bottom of my heart.

 Where we have our breakfast.

 We were not only have the superb soup rice for our breakfast, we have bread, and some hot beverage like yao cha gui , coffee, chocolate drink too.

But we didnt' eat the bread lar, the soup is everything , and we can have bread in Malaysia too. 

 I was so happy for everything, I kept taking photos only. An impromptuos good mood flying high...

 A really really bless to eat great breakfast in family members overlooking such pretty landscape. (too bad there were still 2 of other not here)

Pork Varieties in Old School in The School Jaya One.

Old School serving Pork Varieties here. Not only that the setting of the ambience is Old School, that evoked the nostalgia of Malaysian. Here,  I like to describe this restaurant in childhood Nostalgic tone......

School bell rang , and Class started. Omg I better sneak in quitely, before teacher saw me, else I would be punished for the late coming. 

 My school is Old School, located in The School, Jaya One. I like to come here, because  it has air cond. So far it's the only school in Malaysia that serving delicious Pork dishes.(no offence to my muslim friends, but I appreciate the diversity of culture here in Malaysia) Not one dish, or 2 dishes, but basically everything here has pork.

 When I was young, this was I got to school every day #truestory. Usually, I am not the girl who is ready in the queue, but the one running behind, except that I was in pony tail.
