Wear a fruity floral scent on a first date or the next time you take the kids out for a trip.

Citrus scents are a common favorite among fragrance manufacturers because they’re so versatile. Using tones from orange, lemon, and other citrus fruits, these fragrances are a daily delight, suitable for a variety of occasions. Awaken your senses by spritzing yourself with the scent inspired by Neroli Portofino from Copycat Fragrances which leverages bold citrus top notes to make you feel extra energetic throughout the day.


Oceanic scents encapsulate the sea, the mountains, and the fresh air that envelopes these kinds of locations.

Use Lace Closure for Extensions to Enhance Your Hair

When you are contemplating buying extensions online shops one thing that you ought to consider is when you're designed to attach them. There are numerous options, for example weaving within the extensions through braids or fusing these to the guidelines of the hair. Regardless of what the technique, the primary objective is perfect for the attachment to become as natural-searching as you possibly can.

Among the best options is by using a lace closure. A closure is a bit of cloth, either lace or silk, which has hair mounted on it. It's installed by putting over hair weave once it has been made by braiding into cornrows. It's guaranteed by a number of methods, like taping or sewing in. There are many advantages to using closures to connect extensions for your natural hair.

Among the primary advantages of choosing lace closures would be that the closure supplies a amount of protection for the hair. Keep in mind that your original hair are really hidden through the lace mesh area of the closure. Which means that styling elements or efforts won't damage natural hair. There isn't any possibility of hair getting brittle or thin. If you've lately reduce your hair and wish to provide an opportunity to grow unhindered, using closures is the best option.

Regular extensions have to be combined with your natural hair. What this means is you'll need to bother about the way your styling products will affect your extensions as well as your real human hair. For instance, you will possibly not consider blow-drying as being an issue for the natural hair, however your extensions might not react well to excessive heat. Another example could be dyeing.

Make Up Review I Put The Rimmel London BB Cream To The Test

Lets talk about impulsive purchase of makeup and skincare items.  How many of you have been through the same situation?  You enter  Watsons and suddenly you have the pressure of purchasing something because you just don't feel right to leave the store empty handed. That's me the whole time. In this case my impulsive purchase is a Rimmel London BB Cream

Original purpose for the visit was to see what new products they have on store and the price.  But I just could not leave without buying anything, so I decide to get the BB Cream because my previous one has run out and its about time I get a new one.  Well, not really.  I haven't been using BB Cream for so long and the previous one I had was ages ago.

So if you are just starting to wear makeup and wanted to try something basic beginning with a BB Cream, this is the one. Lets put the Rimmel London BB Cream to the test and I will let you know what I think.  Before that, it only cost less than RM20. 

What is a BB Cream (Beauty Balm)?.

 BB Cream also known as Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm is an all in one cosmetic product with added skin care benefits which also provides sunblock.  BB Cream was originated in in German by a Christine Schrammek a dermatologist in the 1960s. 

Rimmel London BB Cream Description
Promotes 9-in-1 results : Primes, Moisturizes, Minimizes Pores, Conceal, Covers, Smoothes, Mattifies, Brighten and help protect the skin.
Lightweight Formula to give a flawless and 100% natural finish.  Contains SPF15. 

Benefits of the BB Cream
1. Helps to minimize the appearance of pores
2. Covers and conceals any imperfections for an even skin tone
3. All day comfort for the skin
4. Primes, brightens and mattifies the skin 

Lets proceed to see how the products and the swatch looks like. 


The shade is Light/Medium 

Beginning with fresh and clean bare face, I applied toner, lotion and brightening essence.  Proper skincare routine can make a difference to your skin condition. No thick make up is needed when your skin is already a good canvas. Too much make up can clogged up pores, makes your face more oily and worsen your acne. If you are having issues with your skin, please audit your skincare routine and work from there.  

How to Apply the BB Cream. 

The texture of the BB Cream is not thick and it is lightweight, take a few drops of the BB cream and make a dots on your face.  Using fingers or brush apply the cream all over the face.  I prefer to use my hand rather than brush when applying BB Cream.  The heat from your fingers will help the products to be absorbed to the skin.  Below is the half with and without the BB Cream for your comparison. 
Let me tell you, with and without the BB Cream you cant really see much of a difference in skin shade. It is exactly how I wanted.  The BB Cream does a good job in enhancing the skin to make it look better and fresh.  The light/ medium shade matches my original skinNow if you want something thicker with fuller coverage I recommend applying a full coverage foundation.
 What I have on the face is only the Rimmel London BB Cream, no blusher or other face products.  Am I liking it? YES. ABSOLUTELY. 

Checking again on my BB Cream at 6:00pm, around 70% of the BB creams were still there on my face. I was outdoor the whole time painting some doors. Imagine being out at noon and doing some work that makes you sweat, and at the end of the day you still has 70% of the products on your face.  To me, its already good enough. Heat and sweat does wears off the BB Cream and I bet it would have stayed longer if I was in an air conditioned room or being indoors.  

As a conclusion,  in my opinion the Rimmel BB Cream would works well for :

1.  Students who wanted to wear something light to class and to get ready fast. 
2. Working adults, but you might need to reapply after sometime.  Touch up is required because it does not offers full coverage. 
3.  Anyone with budget under RM25 to find a good BB Cream.  This is it!. 

Considering the price of the BB Cream I would say I am quite impressed with how well the product works.  Obviously it doesnt stays up to 24hours but with the price that I am paying it is worth the money I spend. I have been using this daily whenever I am going out if for few hours.  
Will I purchase again? Yes. 

So let me know what you think of the BB Cream and suggest other products that you want me to review in the comment section below.
