Eid Mubarak

While everybody was busy preparing for Eid Mubarak, I am here resting trying to recover. The waether was really hot these days but I'm not surprised by it. I'm a little bit unwell and in pain however I'm better now. Thank goodness we're not allowed to go anywhere this year. Yes, I really am grateful actually. We got to stay home which means we can just rest and spend more time at home. Isn't that great? 

How to Calm Down?


How to calm down? | I've been wanting to write this for quite some time and left it in the draft for so many months. I'm sure some of us know how anxiety feels and there will also be those who don't really know what anxiety really is. My anxiety hits me hard and I had a hard time doing my usual routines. It affects a lot of things.

My Scheming Blackhead Removal from Watson review

My Scheming Blackhead Removal from Watson review | I found this Blackhead Removal at Watson a few weeks ago and decided to try it. It was way before the Movement Restriction starts so don't get me wrong. I don't go out much except for when it is necessary for grocery shopping and buying what I need.

Since the Movement Control Order enforcement starts, I haven't properly given proper care for my skin. The only thing I did was cleaning it with cleanser and applying moisturizer. My pores are crying and the blackheads, as well as whiteheads, are screaming trying to get out. That's when I realized an operation is needed, and My Scheming Blackhead Removal came to the rescue


Packaging & Directions

First of all, I really love black and the fact that the packaging is black was the reason I decided to put it into my Watson shopping cart and it causes me like RM9+(if I'm not mistaken). This was the only one available as I am aware that there's another one in a box called my scheming blackhead removal activated carbon set but it's not available at the store at the time. I saw a lot of people reviewing them.  Plus I rarely use them, so this one is just enough to try on. 

For those who are unfamiliar with how to apply it, there will always be a step by step instruction given on the packaging

Effectiveness

My scheming blackhead removal was quite effective as it pulls out a lot of my blackheads and whiteheads on my nose. It did a good job cleaning up my pores. Since I haven't properly taken good care of my pores, it seems to be a bit messy and it was not fun touching skin while cleaning my face. It doesn't felt smooth at all. You know how that feels right. 

As far as I'm concern, there weren't lots of blackhead removal that actually move me and get me excited with the result. Maybe my method was wrong or it was the product that wasn't worth trying. There's one in mind that I'm accustomed to but I haven't got the time (forgot, actually) to review it. Maybe I'll review that one later. 

I don't have much problem with my pores but once in a while, it does get on my nerves. It will really help if you use it after you've showered or taken a bath before applying it so that your pores are wide open. Still, I think that in order for this to really clear out your pores you will either have to have really clogged pores or get the application process spot on.  

I apologize if the picture is grossing you out but here is a picture of the gunk that came out of my pores. It's pretty satisfying to see this coming out from your pores. 





Pros

  • I think it's affordable for something as effective as this. 
  • Removes the blackhead
  • Smoother skin

Cons

  • I don't like the smell
  • Although it removes the blackheads smaller ones are harder to be removed.
  • You can only use once

Conclusions and honest thoughts on my scheming blackheads removal


All in all, apart from the smell I am satisfied with the result. I think it's a pretty good product. You can't expect a perfect result from it since our skin is very unique and special in its own way. The result we wanted doesn't always come in one go. It involves a lot of effort and trials. Maybe with frequent use, you'll get a better result. 

I wasn't expecting it to remove completely everything as it takes more than that to do so. I am not disappointed but rather glad that at least there are little changes to it. My nose feels smooth after one application. I don't really follow the instructions given as I am well aware of what to do with it when it comes to blackhead remover. It's basically the same process. But if you're unsure you can always refer the instructions at the back of the packaging. 

I always like the fact that this kind of product came with a pore tightening serum as it is very important to close up your pores after clearing up the gunk out of them. Some may not provide it but my choice would be the ones with pore opener (blackhead emerges mask) and pore tightening serum to complete the steps. 

Less is more and I don't regret trying it. Plus, I've already got myself another pack of My Scheming Blackhead Removal for my next use. 

Where to get My Scheming Blackhead Removal

I've never really checked it at other stores but you can definitely get this one from Watson. 

What say you? Would you try it? 

Here's an extra request.

If you're an online shopper and love shopping through Shopee, feel free to click and shop using my link. I'll be grateful if you do so. SHOP HERE okay. *wink

Simple Nutella Milkshake Recipe

Simple Nutella milkshake recipe | For the last couple of weeks I've been craving for something sweet to drink. I know this Nutella milkshake has been going around viral for quite a while but I haven't had the chance to try it. Rarely had a Nutella at home, that's why.


Since, I bought Nutella a few weeks ago and now it's almost finished I decided to try the Nutella milkshake with only Nutella and milk. I go as minimal as I can and use whatever I have. The main reason was I don't want to waste every little bit of Nutella that was left inside. You know how expensive it is.


I rarely drink milkshake now since I decided to cut my sugar intake for health purpose. But once in a while would be okay right. 

I've been thinking of trying so many interesting and simple recipe for drinks but I don't have much ingredients to start with. Not gonna go out just to buy those ingredients since we're restricted from going out and I need to save some money to survive. I'm not obsessed with Nutella but I suddenly have this thought of trying to do something with the Nutella. 

To my surprise it sure taste amazing. Never thought of trying to put anything into it since I'm afraid it would taste weird but maybe a scoop of vanilla ice cream would do next time.


Ingredients for my simple Nutella milkshake will be only these two
  • Nutella 
  • Milk
Instructions
  1. For the Nutella, it is up to you to use how many tbsp but as for me, I'm using all that is left inside the jar. 
  2. Since I don't have any fresh milk, I used powdered milk (Ensure Gold). Yep that would do. Heat up the milk before you put it inside the jar. 
  3. Now all you need is Nutella jar. Put the milk inside the container and shake it. 
  4. Nutella milkshake is all done. Have a sip. You'll be surprised of how good it taste. 

Yup it's very little since I was just in an experimenting mood. Please imagine me wearing a white coat and a big glasses while shaking the milkshake haha. I'm a bit scared to try at first but you'll never get anything from being scared all the time. I'm glad I tried. Next time, I'll try with fresh milk.
