[LAUNCH] Systema 0.02mm Pre Teen Toothbrush

The launch of Systema 0.02mm Pre Teen Toothbrush
I remember recalling my childhood where baby toothbrushes were too small for me by the time i reach 8 years old. And since i gave the adult toothbrush a go, i realized that it was little bit too big for my teeth, which eventually left me feeling confused with which toothbrush i should use. And what i remember most would be feeling the pain each time i brush my teeth with the adult toothbrush. But that has all changed, thanks to Systema who did a research on pre-teens preferences on toothbrushes.

Group photo with the VIP's and special guest
Pre-teens, aged between 8 to 12 years old, are the most vulnerable, since they have to face rapid changes physically, cognitively, emotionally, and socially, as they begin to search for their own identity, independence and acceptance in society. And i think we all know that its during our pre-teen days is when we start to become more self-conscious of our physical appearance. Lets go with the asian stereotype where most of us are brought up to excel in academic and extra curricular activities, but never really enough on oral care.

The official launch ceremony
Not everyone has the privilege to be thought about oral care needs and practices. Thus here im sharing to you that its a crucial stage of mixed dentition (milk teeth giving way to permanent teeth), gums are tender, making brushing more painful, and usually parents are unaware of this problem. As pre-teens outgrown their kiddy toothbrush, they are given adult toothbrushes which results to improper brushing and they suffer from silent dental problems such as bleeding, painful gum, cavities and bad breath.

So now, the Systema, the No. 1 toothbrush brand in Japan is introducing an innovative solution with its latest product, Systema Pre Teen 0.02mm toothbrush that has been designed for pre-teens, especially for those who are 8 to 12 years old. The launch was held at SK Taman Megah today, and the launch was witness by over 300 students and teachers. We also had the popular cast from Geng UPSR, Hud, Adnan, Dina and Mei Yee who presented a skit that highlights the many common oral care problems faced by tweens in real life. Also not to forget that we were also entertained by the choral speaking performance with the team from SK Taman Megah during the launch.

[LAUNCH] Batiste Dry Shampoo Now Available in Malaysia

The full range of Batisté
I've been aware of Batiste when I visited Australia a few years back because of its attractive packaging, and frankly speaking, I was a little confused when I found out that this Batiste is actually dry shampoo. And if this is your first time hearing about dry shampoo, you would pretty much be like me. Confused, lost and simply asking yourself, why would I need dry shampoo? After fully understanding the purpose of dry shampoo, it can actually come in pretty handy to those who have oily scalp. Ever heard of the baby powder over hair trick to make it less flat? Well, with Batiste, you wouldn't need to use that trick anymore. Hehe

UK's No. 1 Dry Shampoo
Models presenting Batisté Dry Shampoo

Launched exclusively at Guardian, Batiste is a classic dry shampoo that instantly refreshes your hair between washes, leaving it clean, fresh and full of body and texture. Another way to look at dry shampoo would be that its body spray, but for your hair.

[REVIEW] Lip Fondue | Lip essence + Lip Balm + Lip Mask

Lip Fondue Review
I've heard of chocolate Fondue before, but this happens to be my first time hearing about Lip Fondue by Mentholatum. *Adds shocked face here*. From the packaging itself, it claims to be a 3-in-1 Lip Fondue that gives your 3-in-1 benefits in one single stick. It's crazy how with just a glide you can now transform dull-looking lips into gorgeous, moisture-looking ones with a natural shine. I FEEL LIKE IM IN THE FUTURE. Screw those typical lip balms, and say hello to these lip balms of the future.

Available in Aurora 3D Pearl
And in Cassis Rose
The Mentholatum all-new Lip Fondue by Mentholatum which launched in September last year comes in two variants, namely the Aurora 3D Pearl Lip Fondue and the Cassis Rose Lip Fondue which both provides your lips with the 3-in-1 function as a lip essence, lip balm, and lip gloss/mask. The Lip Fondue is enriched with Royal Jelly extract, Honey, and Olive Oil that deeply penetrates into the skin layers of your lips to replenish moisture for a firmer appearance making it the perfect lip essence. And not to forget that it still functions as a lip balm, by providing lips with intense and long-lasting moisture too!

Some information on the Lip Fondue
It even comes with a seal!  And im assuming that the Japanese words are warning to not turn too much. 
Comes in a dial lock tube
But honestly, I think what makes this the ideal lip fondue would be because it's formulated and enhanced with 3D particles, featuring the Aurora 3D Pearl Lip Fondue that can be served as a "lip gloss". The 3D pearl is twinkling in response to the light to produce more 3-dimensional lips. The Cassis Rose Lip Fondue, on the other hand, can be used as an overnight "leave-on mask" to help moisturize and nourish your lip while keeping it hydrated throughout the night making it the perfect beauty remedy for those who love wearing matte liquids on your lips.

Aurora 3D Pearl for a glossy finish, Cassie Rose for Repair
This is me wearing the Cassie Rose // Super moisturizing too!
Both the Lip Fondue variants also come with sun protection formula that helps protect the lips from UV rays too. I also found out a cool feature on it too! It has been specially designed with dial lock tubes to allow an easy control of the lip balm at all times, and that's by far my first time seeing such a cool intervention (told you that it's the lip balm of the future). Hehe. Alternatively, you can also apply it on bare lips or on top of your lipstick, and if you're trying to optimize the results, it would be recommended to apply 2-3 layers onto lips when needed.

Cant wait to pamper my lips with Lip Fondue
As a verdict, I would say that these are the must-have lip balms at home, especially when your lips can be extra dry at times. I sadly had to a face a day of chapped lips before deciding to try this out, and within less than 24 hours, my lips were perfectly moisturized. The Lip Fondue is a life savior I tell you. Upon application, it does have this layering that might bug if you don't like the sticky feel, but if you are facing serious dry lips, this would me the answers to your moisturizing needs. hehe. The Lip Fondue is priced at RM17.90 each and they are now exclusively available at all guardian pharmacies in Malaysia. Do leave me a comment below to share me your thoughts or if you have any question on it as I would love to spill out the details for you ;)

Hermo X MolPay Cash Shopping Experience

Hermo X MolPay Cash
Hey guys, I'm here writing to share with you about my shopping experience on Hermo via Molpay Cash! We all know that Hermo is one of the biggest beauty sites in Malaysia that sells all your beauty needs in a click of a button. And whats even better? They now have MolPay Cash as a payment option, which makes it super convenient to shop when it comes to making payment. What does this mean? It means that if you have no credit/visa card, NO PROBLEM, just opt to pay via Molpay Cash for a quick and hassle free payment method.


So if youre unfamiliar with Molpay cash, well let me tell you a thing or two about Molpay CashMolpay Cash is basically is a payment option for those who are concern with safety or unable to pay by card. And with MolPay Cash, it enables you to pay to a secured store and reports your payment instantly once payment has been made. If they had this system during my student days, i would be the happiest girl with all the beauty products i need. (Because back then, i didn't exactly have a card nor trusted payment via deposit machine to secure the payment).


So the first step is pretty simple for any shopaholic to follow, shop and pick the items that you want to buy by adding it to your cart. And in my case, I decided to purchase the Sleek MakeUp Eyeshadow Palette in Original, the Pony MemeBox Shine Easy Glam Eyeshadow Palette, and the Face Shop Daily Perfumed Hand Cream. FYI, did you know that for every purchase of 2 items, you are entitled to free shipping? Thats why we all love hermo! *wink


My Cart Summary
My Shopping cart
Total payable amount
Once you're happy with your selected items, hover to the top right will have a tab 'My Cart' and it will show you a summary of your selected items that you are purchasing. Easy no? Click check out, and it will lead you to a new page of a summary of your purchases for double confirmation with the total amount to be paid at the bottom of the page. Once you have no second thoughts of purchasing more items, click 'Check out Now'.


Select Credit/Debit Card payment option
Select Payment Option > Select 7Eleven
Now for the important part! How do i get to the Molpay Cash payment selection? Hermo may require you to select a payment option but fret not if you don't see the word Molpay Cash! What i did was that i selected the credit/debit payment option, and it lead me to another secure online payment page. On the Secured payment page, click the payment options, then select 7Eleven.

MolPay Cash X 7Eleven Payment option (Logo)
Confirmation of payment option
Once selecting the 7Eleven payment option, it will then change your payment option and be sure that you see the molpay cash and 7Eleven logo (refer to above) to be sure that you've selected the right payment option. If you're satisfied with the total amount payable, click 'proceed' and it will confirm your payment option and record it to Hermo's database. A bar code and reference number is then generated for you to proceed with payment.


Cash Payment receipt sent to email
Now for the fun part! You will also receive an email stating your cash payment receipt to be paid. In my case, i didnt exactly have time to print it out, so i went hunting for a 7Eleven that provides the Molpay Cash service and just showed my email to the cashier. BE VERY SURE that the 7Eleven that youre heading to has the MolPay Cash logo to avoid disappointments as not all 7Elevens have this service apparently. I personally had to go to THREE 7Eleven's to get my payment done as some did not have the service, and the other one told me that the system was down. But not to worry, Hermo gave me 48 hours to complete my payment so i had enough time to stop by 7Eleven to make payment.


Receipts to confirm that youve paid
Order Confirmation via Email
And once you've made your way to 7Eleven and made your payment, 7 Eleven will issue you a MOL-MOLPAY receipt and a 7Eleven Receipt. So do expect to get 2 receipts to confirm that you've made payment. I was actually amazed that just after making my payment, i received an email stating that my payment has been approved by Hermo! YAY! (Refer to receipt time 9:30pm and email received time 9:30pm). I have to say that i feel safer paying this way knowing that my payment has been electronically received and guaranteed by Hermo instantly.


Parcel arrived!
And youre DONE! Sit back, relax and wait for your parcel to arrive. Its that simple! And its amazing how fast this parcel arrives. I completed my payment on a Thursday night, and got my parcel sent over to my door step on a Saturday morning. That really made my day, so thank you Hermo for getting my parcel ready in such a short time! For live updates, follow me on Instagram at @alizasara to keep up with me. As a summary of my experience, i have to say that its great to know that MolPay Cash exist! It saves me the worry of using my card details, and also suitable for those who prefer making cash payments instead of cards purchases. Super easy, convenient and hassle free if you ask me!
