Last time I get the chance to review Lazy Sunday Box and share with you how much i love the box so much here. I was so in love with it and again, received a box of un-pore-gettable box from Althea! Yeay! Double yeay as i think they notice about my skin problems that is why i was getting this opportunity lol Do you know that open pores and acne are something related to each other? 

Why i love Althea?

Before i share with you what i got from Althea, let me tell you why i love Althea so much. Monthly, they provided two type of beauty box with specific themes. The price was super duper affordable with some high quality korean beauty full sized products (you could save a lot of money by purchasing this box, trust me). I prefer to buy them in boxes rather than individually, that is why i keep the notifications from Althea on all the time ( I also downloaded their apps in my phone and it was on my first page lol)

Althea Un-pore-gettable Box

This box contain 7 awesome products with some freebies in it. The overall price should be RM 417.00 (if you purchase each items individually, but with this box you just need to spend RM 127). See how much you could save from it. Here are the list of items:

Star product of this box, Dear, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner. Totally excited to try this. hehe Been keeping an eye on it for a long time. Definitely will buy bigger size later. This small toner contains only 30ml (a size suitable for trial). 

How to use it; After cleansing, apply on clean face. Gently pat using your palm until fully absorbed. Rate: 5/5.

Personal Review: White clear toner, Soft and supple skin after usage. Love it. Rate 5/5.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask, i have been wanting it all this while. This tub contains 100ml which last 9 months after opened. The goodness of it are; it helps to tightens pores, removes excessive sebum, exfoliating dead skin cells, offers deep cleansing, enhance skin tone and also provide cooling effects. 

How to use it; after cleansing apply skin toner to refine skin. Apply clay mask and leave it for 10 minutes, wash off using lukewarm water.

Personal Review: Cooling, easy to apply and easy to remove, skin felt so much cleaner and soft than before. Rate should be 5/5.

Common Labs Mild Peeling Finger Pad, this mild exfoliator could help to remove any excessive sebum or dead cells, enable your skin to absorb all the good ingredients from your skincare routine.

Personal Review: Good result, i could see yellowish or dirt coming out from my face on the pads. Rate 4/5.

Personal Review: My skin felt so much better after using it, moist and supple. Rate 4/5.

Rire All Kill Pore Tightening Ice Stick. I got open pores problem especially on my cheek to nose area. Usually i use ice cube to close my pores before i start my makeup. Now i can only use this awesome ice stick to cover all my open pores (however it is not permanent)

How to use it; slightly place it on your face, roll over using your fingers so that it absorbs into your skin.

Personal review; Pore tightens at the moment i using it, easy to apply but a bit unhygienic ( i dont know, should i just roll it on my face or use some other tools to make sure it is clean?) Rate 3/5.

Laneige Powder Fit Cushion #23 Sand. The best product in this box for me, i really love it. The colour suits with my skin, and covers my flaws very well. Easy to apply and pleasant smell. Also contains spf 50!

How to use it; dab to your skin using the sponge. 

Personal Review; Love love love it! Covers my flaws very well. I should just give it a rate of 5/5.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Care Sample Kit. This small sample kit comes handy when i travel. I dont need to bring lot of skincare products with it. However, i rarely use it because it is too cute for me to use lol

In this box, i also received some freebies such as Mamonde and Boom De Ah Dah face mask, Klairs Gentle Black Deep Cleansing Oil, Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum, Iope Derma Trouble Cleansing Foam, Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum, CP-1 Premium Slik Ampoule,  and Madagascar Centella Asiatica Cream Samples. ( I havent use them yet though)

Then, i just touch up my eyebrows, natural cheeks using Saemul Blush Stick which i get from previous box of Althea and also Matte Junkie code 06 Darling. I love this Un-pore-gettable box and would suggest you to try it to but unfortunately this box is sooo affordable and worth buying causing it to be already sold out (don't worry new box coming up next). 

Thanks for reading, i hope you enjoy reading my upside down english slang lol! ❤

7 Punca Jerawat Paling 'Obvious'


Sejak akhir-akhir ni, ramai yang whatsapp Mellya pasal jerawat. Eh Mellya pun ada masalah jerawat jugak haha but sometimes usually before period atau bila Mellya "malas". Banyak je product untuk jerawat dekat luar sana tu, cuma kita kena rajin cari product yang sesuai dengan kulit kita. Ada yang complain dah cuba pelbagai jenis product tapi hasil masih sama. Jangan salahkan product je, salahkan diri juga, adakah cara penggunaan kita tu dah betul and product tu sesuai dengan jenis kulit sekarang? Hal tu maybe boleh dikongsikan di entry akan akan datang but this time Mellya nak share 7 punca jerawat paling 'obvious'.


Bacteria dekat phone boleh jadi punca jerawat. So jangan lupa lap phone korang tu selalu.
Solution: Standby wet tissue or tissue untuk lap phone korang.

Touching face

Tangan tu suka sangat pegang muka kan. haha Tangan tu bersih sangat ke?
Solution: Standby hand sanitizer untuk memastikan tangan korang bebas bacteria.

Lack of sleep 

Lack of sleep = stress resultnya bertambah lah jerawat naik. 
Solution: Pastikan tidur mencukupi. 

Beauty Routine

Sikap malas boleh jadi punca jerawat. Dahla malas pastu skincare tu sesuai tak dengan jenis kulit korang? Mampu tak untuk treat masalah yang korang hadapi sekarang?
Solution: Skin testing before purchasing any skincare products. Jangan malas or skip beauty routine. Cuba contohi masyarakat Korea ni. 

Your prescription

Ubat-ubatan seperti steroid dan lain-lain boleh menyebabkan jerawat. Masalah hormon juga, jadi dapatkan ubat atau supplement yang bersesuaian sahaja.
Solution: Dapatkan bantuan pakar untuk decide supplement yang sesuai dan tak merbahayakan kulit.

Too much chocolate or dairy products

Makan chocolate secara berlebihan boleh menyebabkan jerawat. Jadi elak makan or minum produk tenusu secara berlebihan. 
Solution: Jaga pantang haha


Peluh juga boleh menyebabkan jerawat. Bila berpeluh mesti korang rasa malas gila kan nak jaga muka. eh time ni la wajib jaga, bacteria tengah banyak tu
Solution: Keringkan peluh then proceed dengan skincare routine korang. 

7 punca jerawat paling 'obvious' dah dikenalpasti. So? Good luck hehe ❤

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm Review


Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm ni Mellya beli melalui Althea, entry pertama Althea boleh baca di sini. Semuanya disebabkan oleh terpengaruh dan sekadar nak cukupkan barang untuk dapat free shipping. haha 

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm 

Okay product Korea ni actually dalam box, tapi box tu entah dekat mana Mellya simpan. Haha cari-cari tak jumpa. So dapat tunjuk balm nya jelaa box xda. Tapi kalau nak tunjuk pun, penat je... sebab tulisannya dalam bahasa Korea. Bukannya kita faham pun kan hahaha Harga satu ni supposed to be RM 30 but dekat Althea kita boleh dapat cuma RM 21 je. Murah kan? tapi ada jugak orang cakap dekat Hermo lagi murah? hahaha so korang check jela sendiri ye?

Every tub ada 30g. Expiry date 12 months after opened. Boleh check dekat bawah tub ni. It was claimed that this balm consist of jeju volcanic scoria, yang mampu mencairkan and menyerap sebum atau kotoran yang menyumbat liang pori tanpa menggunakan proses extraction. So let see if it works.

Sepanjang Mellya guna, yes boleh lah nak cakap semua keluar tak, but the one on the surface, hilang or came out together with the balm. haha Here are my opinion:

  • Light consistency and a bit oily bila cair atas kulit. 
  • Senang juga nak sapu sebab bila gosok dekat muka baru dia melt. 
  • Not sticky.
  • Succeed dissolved blackheads and whiteheads on the surface.

Cara penggunaan: Sapu pada kawasan blackhead atau whitehead, gosok dan urut selama beberapa minit. Lama-lama pun tak pa, then cuci dengan air suam or cleanser. 

  • A little bit unhygienic sebab dia tak provide scoop or anything untuk digunakan. 
  • Dont expect your blackhead/whitehead to be gone in the first try, might takes couple times baru dissapear.
  • Bau wax tak berapa nak best and greasy.
  • Not efficient for deep pores cleansing.

Hmm not a must. Rasanya satu tub ni pun tak pasti bila nak habis haha sebab Mellya suka something yang cepat nampak effect. It is effective untuk blackhead yang dekat surface, bukan yang deep down in the pores. However, worth trying. Boleh lah nak try.Yang penting rajin pakai. hehehe 

Dah cuba? Korang pakai okay tak? ❤

*Disclaimer: This is my personal opinion and humble review based on my experience. I am not paid for this review and I spent my own money on this product. Result may be vary depends on your skin conditions. I am not liable for any problems that might arise from trying out the product I review here.

Bukan Senang Jadi Dewasa


Dulu masa kecik, masa sekolah... rasa tak sabar nak jadi dewasa. Nak masuk universiti... nak cari kerja... nak ada banyak duit... nak beli apa yang selama ni teringin nak beli.. nak kawin... nak ada anak dan seterusnya lah! haha  Tapi sekarang bila dah dewasa, rasa macam nak patah balik masa ke zaman innocent, zaman tak ada masalah dalam fikiran, nak minta apa pun dapat, tak payah nak fikir or cari jalan untuk dapatkan sesuatu. Hari-hari penat pergi sekolah and kelas tuisyen je kan. haha

Kenapa Mellya kata bukan senang nak jadi dewasa? 

Perkara pertama bagi Mellya ialah rasa tanggungjawab. Tanggungjawab pada diri, pada parents, adik-beradik dan keluarga. Ya, tanggungjawab sebagai seorang anak, seorang kakak terutamanya. Sekarang dah hampir 6 bulan Mellya kerja dekat hotel, gaji pun tak seberapa. Nak tolong keluarga pun tak berapa nak mampu. Baru lah Mellya sedar susah jadi dewasa.

Berdikari. Susahnya jadi dewasa, kita terpaksa belajar berdikari. Mellya bersyukur sebab dapat parents yang tak nak anak dia tinggal jauh-jauh, hidup susah. Biarlah anak tinggal dekat, kerja biasa-biasa sementara tunggu kerjaya yang betul-betul stabil. Masa awal-awal tu, Mellya agak kecewa sebab parents tak bagi merantau, tapi bila difikirkan kerjaya tak menentu, gaji yang tidak tentu cukup untuk support sewa rumah, transport dan makan minum, ada betulnya bila permulaan ni tinggal di rumah je dulu. Tapi kadang tu terdetik juga rasa macam membebankan parents 😂

Fikir untuk masa depan. Dulu dapat duit belanja je, ada lah benda nak dibeli. Membazir ke arah yang tak sepatutnya. Bila dah dewasa ni baru sedar, wang ringgit tu penting. Tanpa benda ni apa pun tak boleh. Tak kan masih nak mengharapkan duit parents kan? Susahnya jadi seorang yang dewasa, kena belajar menyimpan untuk masa depan. 

Berusaha untuk ke arah yang lebih baik. Bila dah dewasa ni, kena pandai mencari jalan untuk majukan diri. Tak boleh harapkan parents dan family sangat dah (Berdikari). Bukan senang nak cari peluang, peluang tak datang bergolek, tanpa usaha. 

Bagi mereka yang ingat jadi dewasa tu mudah, fikir-fikirkan lah ye. Ini bukan luahan dewasa yang sudah kahwin, kalau dah berkahwin lagi besar tanggungjawabnya kan? heheh Korang macam mana?  Macam mana korang sesuaikan diri? ❤

St Ives Oatmeal Scrub and Mask Review


Previously, Mellya memang dah pernah cuba St Ives Apricot Scrub but rasa macam kasar sangat pula untuk kulit muka Mellya, then I found this one dekat Guardian. Masa tu ada sale, cuma RM 15 untuk every 170g scrub + mask.

St Ives Oatmeal Scrub and Mask

2-in-1 derma-tested alert! 

St Ives Oatmeal Scrub and Mask ni ada dua purpose tau, boleh pakai sebagai scrub (exfoliate sel mati kat kulit kita ni) and juga sebagai mask (melembapkan). Kalau mengikut scale yang St Ives dah provide dekat belakang bottle St Ives ni, yang ni untuk category gentle, means lembut untuk kulit. For your info, scrub + mask St Ives Oatmeal ni sesuai dipakai 3-4 kali seminggu tanpa mengeringkan kulit. 100% kandungan natural:

  • Oatmeal
  • Walnut shell powder
  • Honey extract
  • 2-in-1 Face Scrub & Mask. 
  • Softens skin and smoothes away dryness
  • Instantly reveals skin’s natural radiance
  • Made with 100% natural exfoliants like walnut shell powder
  • Low exfoliation scrub factor level
  • Hypoallergenic & Paraben free
  • Dermatologist tested & non-comedogenic (meaning it doesn’t block your pores)

Bau sedap macam nak makan and yes berbaloi, boleh pakai sebagai scrub and also mask. Pakai daily pun tak rasa muka kering, shouldn't be a problem if nak pakai daily. Skin rasa lebih hydrated and smooth after usage. The beads memang tak menyakitkan kulit. Harga pun murah je.

Basahkan muka dengan air. Picit and gosok seluruh muka, bilas. Kalau nak jadikan sebagai mask, biarkan 5 hingga 7 minit.

Setakat ni bagi Mellya belum ada consequences nya, ketara pros je. haha conclusion nya, memang okaylah, suitable for combination skin macam Mellya.

Kat mana nak beli? Kat Watsons, Guardian, and lain-lain pharmacy pun ada jual. Cuma harga je different sikit kot. Senang je nak cari product St Ives ni.

As a scrub: 4.9/5, as mask: 4/5. Rating terbaik bulan ni hehe Mellya memang suka try beauty products ni. Lepas ni nak try apa pulak ye.. Korang pakai scrub apa? Nak try jugak huhu ❤

Produk Skincare Pilihan - Sendayu Tinggi


Previously, Mellya ada post up few entries mengenai produk skincare Sendayu Tinggi. This entry is not a biased entry, i just share what i love and currently used from this local brand ( Makeup pun mostly from this brand, sebab harga dia murah and quality pun okay). So, there are two skincare range yang Sendayu Tinggi dah keluarkan, I already tried both and dah mix, used them until now. 

During skin breakout, I usually use Acne Set only. Tapi bila dah kulit makin okay sekarang, i started to mix both skincare range. Ini antara product Sendayu Tinggi yang masih Mellya pakai setiap hari;

Brightening Series Cleanser
Gentle to your skin, even you tak cuci muka dengan makeup remover pun tak apa. This cleanser cleanse deep to your skin. And sangat melembutkan kulit. You can see the changes in 2 weeks. 

Scar Toner 
Scar toner ni memang best. Dah guna maybe dalam 7 bottle? Parut memang makin hilang but makan masa. Dont expect pakai sebotol hilang terus. haha Each bottle ada lebih kurang 60ml. Kalau jenis jimat cermat 2 months boleh tahan lagi. Cara guna tuang pada kapas and sapu pada area parut jerawat pagi dan malam.

Brightening Series Hyaluronic Acid Serum
Seriously important untuk menegangkan kulit. It helps to tighten your pores and skin, reduce wrinkles and etc. Use it after toner and before moisturiser. 

Brightening Series Moisturiser (water based)
Perfect moisturiser for those yang ada masalah kulit kering, berminyak pun boleh sebab dia sejenis water based yang sangat cepat meresap ke dalam kulit. 

Pearl Cream
This is also a must buy, must try product. For those yang ingin hilangkan parut and whiten your face naturally, face cream ni paling sesuai. However, tak suitable for those with oily skin, boleh nak pakai but you will need to reduce the amount and use setting powder to "matte" your face. You can also read my review here >> Sendayu Tinggi Pearl Cream Review

Acne Cream
This one is the best among the best, dalam Sendayu Tinggi. Untuk mereka yang ada masalah pori besar, this is the best solution for you. Just sapu pada waktu malam, pada area parut atau area pori besar. Perubahan boleh tengok dalam masa sebulan. Seriously, memang pori makin mengecil. This one i haven't review yet. 

Acne Balm
Sapu cuma bila ada jerawat je. For now, I cant find any other solution for my acne, jadi this is the most, or paling best yang setakat ni Mellya jumpa. So, this is a must purchase, setiap kali habis memang beli.. lagi and lagi. You can read my previous review >> Sendayu Tinggi Acne Balm Review

Actually, Mellya bukan pakai product Sendayu Tinggi je, there's a few other brand that i currently using, memandangkan this post is a tribute to Sendayu Tinggi, so i just shared my Sendayu Tinggi skincare products. Mehmeh hehe Maybe i should share other products that i used? Anyway, Thanks for reading ❤

Rutin Penjagaan Kulit dan Diet Sihat Masyarakat Korea Untuk Kulit Cantik dan Sihat


Masyarakat Korea seringkali menjadi sebutan dalam kalangan wanita-wanita segenap dunia disebabkan oleh kecantikan dan kesihatan kulit wajah mereka yang tidak dapat dinafikan. Kebanyakan beauty guru's sendiri juga telah mencadangkan dan mempraktikan 10 langkah penjagaan kulit masyarakat Korea untuk mendapatkan kulit yang cantik dan sihat seperti wanita Korea. Selain daripada itu, masyarakat Korea juga mengamalkan diet sihat yang sememangnya membantu mengekalkan keremajaan kulit mereka!

10 langkah ajaib penjagaan kulit harian masyarakat Korea !

Cleansing Water atau Cleansing Oil

Dua bahan ini berfungsi untuk membersihkan wajah daripada sisa makeup. Masyarakat Korea sangat mementingkan konsep double cleansing, ( iaitu dua cucian, menggunakan cleansing water/oil dan seterusnya pembersih wajah). Keliru nak pilih cleansing water atau cleansing oil untuk kulit? Baca sini.

Foaming Cleanser/Pembersih Wajah

Selepas menanggalkan makeup menggunakan cleansing oil/water, adalah lebih baik untuk mencuci wajah daripada sisa yang tertinggal menggunakan cleanser yang sesuai dengan jenis kulit.


Pastikan korang scrub wajah sekurang-kurangnya 3 kali seminggu untuk mengelakkan daripada pori tersumbat. Selain itu, ia juga berfungsi untuk menanggalkan sisa kotoran, sel kulit mati dan sisa makeup yang terperangkap didalam liang pori.


Pilih toner yang bersesuaian dengan wajah untuk stabilkan atau mengembalikan pH kulit korang.

Essence dan Serum

Sebelum serum, gunakan essence (lebih ringan, kurang pekat sesuai untuk merawat kulit dan mengembalikan sel kulit) terlebih dahulu. Ia juga membantu untuk melembapkan kulit. Serum kandungan lebih thick membantu untuk mengecilkan pori, mengurangkan kemerahan pada kulit, mengurangkan kedutan dan juga merawat jerawat. 


Gunakan mask sekurang-kurangnya 2 kali seminggu selama 15 minit. Ia membantu untuk melembapkan dan menegangkan kulit. 

Krim Mata 

Penting untuk melindungi kawasan paling sensitif pada wajah. Mengurangkan lingkaran gelap bawah mata dan sembap.

Krim Muka atau Pelembap, SPF

Krim muka, pelembap dan SPF untuk maintain kelembapan kulit, dan melindungi daripada sinaran UV. Kulit terlalu kering boleh menyebabkan jerawat.

Bukan je dari segi penjagaan kulit, diet pun orang Korea jaga tau ! Antara hidangan yang orang Korea suka makan ialah:


 "Kimchi is a fermented Korean dish made of cabbage and seasoned with garlic, sugar, hot pepper and salt."

Kebaikan: Mengandungi lactic acid, lactobacillus (bacteria sebagus bacteria dalam yogurt yang baik untuk digestive system), vitamin C dan beta carotene yang baik untuk skin elasticity, mengurangkan jerawat, melambatkan penuaan dan melembapkan kulit. 


"Barley tea, or boricha, as Koreans call it, is made by adding roasted barley to water and bringing it to a boil."

Kebaikan: Mengandungi antioxidant yang boleh melambatkan proses penuaan. Menghalang gigi rosak dan mulut berbau.

Seaweed Soup

"It's made by soaking seaweed in beef or seafood stock, and seasoned with soy sauce, salt, garlic and sesame oil. "

Kebaikan: Kandungan Omega 3 yang sangat baik untuk kulit.

Banyak sebenarnya tips orang Korea ni. Diorang dari kecil lagi dah diasuh and dididik untuk jaga penampilan diorang. Harap-harap lepas cuba tips ni muka I flawless macam orang Korea. haha ❤
