Magic Jelly by L'Overa Review

Hello guys,

magic jelly; magic jelly lovera; aloe vera product; aloe vera; magic jelly review; magic jelly harga; magic jelly beli


Aloe Vera or known as Lidah Buaya in Malay has many beneficial properties for the skin. My first memory of this plant actually came from my childhood which when I was in primary school. My school has a garden that have Aloe Vera plant and being kids, a lot of fellow students like to snap the the plant and play with the clear jelly like substance in it. But of course I didn't do that because I was a model student *cough cough*. My point is that I'm already aware of the benefit of this plant when I was younger and I always look forward to products that use Aloe Vera as its ingredient.

Anyway, I was given this Magic Jelly product to try out from the @squarepaperbax instashop. After trying for about two weeks I've got to say that I'm pleasantly happy about it. What set this product apart from other Aloe Vera based product is that it also uses Cucumber as the main ingredient.

My first impression of it is the nice scent. I love products with scent that I like because it makes me a bit more 'rajin' to put it on everyday. It comes as a clear jelly like substances that does not feels too sticky on the skin. This product is made of 100% natural and halal ingredients, contains no paraben or artificial colouring which also makes it great.

High End Beauty Products Wishlist 2015


 Hey guys :)

I can't deny my obsession with beauty products especially makeups. As of 2014 I managed to get myself some high end (read: pricey) products that I've been dying to have. And of course my favourite from last year purchase is the Naked 3 palette! This 2015, I want to share a few other products that I have in mind to try out. I hope I'll be able to get everything in the list by the end of 2015. So wish me luck!

must have makeup for beauty junkie


1. NARS Blush in Orgasm 

The price for one blush does make me stop to think for quite sometimes now. But I decided that this year I'm going to get myself one. It has such pretty shade that makes all the rave about it is undeniably understandable.

2. Guerlain Meteorites Light Revealing Pearls of Powder 

All the reviews I read so far are positive. This is probably one thing that I'll find hard to decide whether to buy or not. The price is too high for a 25g product. But gosh, have you tried to swatch it on your hand? It just gorgeous!

3.  Too Face Chocolate Bar Palette

So far, I've been staying in 'safe zone' shade the most and I guess I just can't deny my love for it. I've been eyeing for it every time I went to Sephora. I just love how pigmented it is.

4. GlamGlow Supermud or Thirstymud

After trying out the sample, I just can't deny how great this product is. It's almost magical. No wonder it comes with such a high price tag. I guess I need to budget carefully so I won't end up eating cucumber everyday after buying it. LOL, just kidding! 

5. Benefit Majorette Blush

I am such a softie towards coral shade blush. Thinking carefully, most of my blushes collection are mostly in the shade that is more toward coral rather than pink or red. I think it complements my skin tone well. And since Malaysia is sunny all year, that's definitely a colour that won't be out of style.

6. A MAC Lipstick

I know a MAC lipstick is a must have in the beauty junkie stash. I've been going to MAC counters to swatch some shades but seriously with all the selection, I need some time to find my perfect one. But yeah, it is definitely going into my lipstick drawer this year ;D

7. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

I've heard lots of rave on this product and my friends even recommend it to me. I think it's time to try it because I've been getting such a bad dark circles that some concealer don't really work.

8. Naked On The Run Palette

I'm having a hard time to decide if this will actually worth my money. I'm not really a lip gloss person so I might not like the lip gloss that comes with it. But the shades for the eyeshadow are so pretty. I'm still weighing the pros and cons but I might as well add this to the list for now. Hahaha!

It would be impossible to get everything in a blink unless I suddenly get a inheritance from a distant family ;P *in my dreams*. But yeah, I'm going to slowly save my money to get those babies. Well, I'm pretty sure my list will grow more in months to come since I'm a beauty junkie after all. Do you have any particular high end product that you love to bits? Share them with me!

How Do You Pamper Yourself?


Hey guys!

image source: dreamtravelspots

So did you had a great time last weekend? What did you do? Well, I don't get to do fun stuffs much since I have a lot of work to do.  But I decided to give myself a short pampering session at the comfort of my home.

How do you usually pamper yourself? For me, I just recreate the best relaxation time for myself. My room filled with lit scented candle, wearing a face mask after a refreshing bath is just perfect for me. I sometimes make 'DIY' facial when I feel like it. My pampering session is never the same every time depending on how busy I am on that time. But for me, nothing feels better than taking a long bath and then laying on my bed reading novel while waiting for all the goodness from the mask to soak into my skin. And lastly, I will apply my favourite Clinique Even Better Essence Lotion which I'm in love with. That thing is such a miracle worker you know!

Speaking of novel, currently I'm trying to finish up my Tina Fey's biography Bossypants. I've been trying to finish it for quite awhile now but I haven't get to yet*blame my busy job*. It's really a fun read. I usually read them on my commute back from work, but these days I feel like sleeping even on when I'm taking the train. I guess I'm too exhausted these days. That's why a short pampering session is a great way for me to pick up my pace again.

For my pampering session last weekend, I decided to try the products I received in the Butterfly Project Beauty Box last December. Let see what I have to say about them ;)

nature republic snail solution hydrogel mask
1. Hydraluron Moisture Boosting Mask

This is the first thing I tried from the beauty box as I've never used this mask before. The name Hydraluron sounds so moisturizing to me too. Well, as I'm fighting dryness these days a great mask like this will definitely be my best friend. I like that it doesn't feels sticky on my face afterwards, some masks tend to do that you know. I feel refreshing after using it and my skin looks brighter and glowing.

Probability repurchase: 9.5/10

2. Nature Republic Snail Solution Hydrogel Mask Sheet
 
Nature Republic masks is something I frequently use so I was just delighted to see this mask sheet in my beauty box. Who doesn't like Korean beauty masks especially with gorgeous EXO boys on the packaging? Lol, just kidding ! The reason why I love this mask is not because D.O or Chanyeol is on it, but because it just feels great on my skin. Snail solution is something commonly found on Korean mask products. A little bit of reading thought me that snail slime can help in stimulating collagen production to help repair sign of anti aging, and it also help to reduce premature aging in skin.

Probability repurchase: 9.5/10


always 21 aloe vera mist
3.  Always 21 Aloe Vera Soothing Gel Mist

Although this brand is quite foreign to me as I've never came across it before, I was quite excited when I first saw it. I just love face mist especially when it comes in small size! That's just great for me to bring everywhere. My skin tend to get quite dry under air conditioner so it's just great to help me maintain the moisture. I've always like Aloe Vera based products too especially with its refreshing scent.

Probability repurchase: 8.0/10

 

loccitane hand cream
4. L'Occitane Hand Cream

Before this, I used to really hate hand cream. It felt sticky on my hand and doesn't feel comfortable at all. But since last year, I've found some amazing hand creams that makes me utterly in love with this product. This is my first time L'Occitane hand cream and I'm glad it doesn't fails me. It smells so great, doesn't feel sticky on my hand and what's more is the fact that it got such a pretty packaging just pleases me ;)

Probability repurchase: 8.0/10

 

matrix biolage shampoo
5. Matrix Biolage Colorlast Shampoo

This shampoo is actually intended for people who colour their hair, but the scent makes me want to try it. I like the consistency of the product ,and how it leave my hair feels soft afterwards. I might  pickup another one from this range that is suitable for my hair type.

Probability repurchase: 8.5/10

There are also some other products that I love to use during my pampering session. For example Annie's Way Arbutin + Hyaluronic jelly mask that is my all time favourite! You can read my review about it HERE. Do you have any particular mask that you love too? Please share with me so I can try them too :)

P/s: The products mentioned in this post is sponsored except for the Clinique Essence Lotion and Annie's Way Jelly Mask. This is my review to outline my personal thoughts on the products.

Top Favourite TV Series 2014


 Hey guys :D

Last year I spent lots of time watching American TV Series which is a major shocker to me because I don't usually follow them as much as I did in 2014. The only series that I watched every episode till the end is Ugly Betty and Without A Trace. I wonder if its because my taste towards television shows has changed? Or maybe it broaden a bit more? One thing for sure, I've been looking forward to new episodes every week and I would like to share my top favourite here. 

The funny thing is, I don't even follow the most hyped shows like Orange is The New Black, or Game of Thrones. I guess I am more interested in light romance series, or a more geeky-techy-FBI-kind of stuffs. Game of Thrones is especially too much for my brain to process especially its overwhelmingly too much skin exposure ;P .

Thus this brings us to my top favourite series in 2014 which in no particular order;

1. Scorpion

What I love about this show is not just the techy-stuffs it has. But the fact that it has the perfect balance of seriousness, comedy, romance. The character development of this series is amazing. I suggest you to try this one out. It also get a second season which proves how well loved this series is. And yeah, I think this opening is enough to sum up what this series is all about ;D

"My name is Walter O'Brien. I have the fourth highest IQ ever recorded: 197. Einstein's was 160. When I was 11, the FBI arrested me for hacking NASA to get their blueprints for my bedroom wall. Now I run a team of geniuses, tackling worldwide threats only we can solve. Toby's our behaviorist. Sylvester's a human calculator. Happy, a mechanical prodigy. Agent Cabe Gallo's our government handler. And Paige? Well, Paige isn't like us. She's normal and translates the world for us while we help her understand her genius son. Together, we are Scorpion."


2. Selfie

Although this series even got cancelled by ABC, Hulu was kind enough to finish the remaining episode for us fans.I don't get why ABC dropped the series even when the fans were adamantly rebutting and even signed petition to make it stay. Anyhow no matter what people say, I love this series so much; probably as close to my love for The Ugly Betty. I love the chemistry between Eliza and Henry. You can read my previous post on Top 5 Reasons Why I Love Selfie.


3. Forever

I've taken an unexpected liking to this series when one day I was browsing around and decided to watch the first episode. It's a about a Dr. Henry Morgan, a medical examiner who also help the police to solve cases. He has secret in which he is immortal. He's so brilliant in solving cases, and I like the twist in the storyline. I want to say more but I'm afraid I'll give away spoiler. But in short, yeah, I recommend this series for you guys to try.


Well, I do watch other TV series like Elementary and Sherlock. But what I'm suggesting above are the series first aired in 2014 ;) Please let me know other series you're loving these days so I can check it out too!
