[REVIEW] Teeth Whitening Solution with Whitekish Magic Charcoal

Have you ever worry about having yellow teeth? I know I have. Considering I love eating curry chicken and any dish that has turmeric in it, it would definitely leave a slight stain on my teeth to be slightly yellowish. With a worry of having yellow teeth, I found myself exploring Whitekish Magic Charcoal, a whitening, cleaning teeth, and mouth solution that uses Japanese technology. Since it claims to be a solution for whitening, tartar, bad breath, and great smile, I just had to give myself a go, thus a worthy review to write about in my blog. 


Upon receiving it, it comes in a blue and white box that looks very minimalist and clinical. Considering it uses charcoal to whiten, I found out that the active charcoal comes from the coconut shell and without the need of any chemical ingredients, it would whiten and clean your teeth and mouth by absorbing bacteria and 'food chemical' naturally. It's definitely an extra bonus if youre looking for a whitening solution that does not use chemicals. When I found out that it doesn't use chemicals, I was so happy! After all, I do believe that keeping things natural would always be the best option.

The benefits of the Whitekish Magic Charcoal is that it whitens the teeth, removes bacteria that causes bad breath, effectively removes dark tartar for smokers, neutralized the ph balance in the mouth, has no peroxide, and it can guarantee results within 1 month of usage. With that being said, as a mother who is still breastfeeding, I really had no concerns about trying this out considering that it's pretty much safe for overall whitening use that contains no harmful chemicals. 

REVIEW


Upon unboxing the product, it comes in pretty cute packaging, accompanied by its own toothbrush. The bristles of the toothbrush is super thick which I believe has a reason behind it. The Whitekish Magic Charcoal itself comes in powder form and as a first impression, I would have to highlight to be really careful when opening the lid. Since it's in fine powder form, be sure that youre not opening this with any exposure to the wind to reduce the mess. 



So, to use this, I actually took the toothbrush that was provided and just dipped it in the charcoal. Honestly, I was pretty surprised at how well the powder stuck onto the toothbrush, leaving it to collect just enough charcoal before brushing. After getting a sufficient amount, I rinsed my mouth with water first, followed by brushing my teeth with the Whitekish Magic Charcoal. I guess I would have to say that I found it amusing that my teeth became entirely black when I was brushing, but when I hear that 'squeaky clean' sound which brushing, I know that the charcoal is cleaning my teeth in every corner. 



I've been using it for two weeks now, with daily brushing using Whitekish Magic Charcoal. As a verdict, I can say that it does whiten the teeth without leaving any sensitivity to my teeth. I can't be too sure if the results are permanent for now, but I can definitely say that it does whiten the teeth after continuous usage. It retails at RM   which i would have to say that it's a little steep, but for whitening results, thats definitely cheaper than going to the dentist. Overall thoughts, im pretty satisfied with the product and it does claim what it's supposed to do. So, if youre looking for a whitening solution, you may consider the Whitekish Magic Charcoal.

[BEAUTY REVIEW] Sarah Skincare | Affordable Premium Skincare

Okay, I know I already have my favorite skincare since I've been trying out so many different types that the skincare industry has to offer. But when there's skincare that shares my name, how can I say no? Im honestly pretty flattered that there's a premium skincare brand in the market that decided to name the brand 'Sarah Skincare' as it resembles the meaning of a happy princess. Pretty sums up the meaning of my name actually, but now, I can actually explore how that meaning has been translated into the form of skincare! Without further ado, let me introduce to you Sarah Skincare. 

Sarah Skincare believes that the word Sarah perfectly matches the purpose and objective of the brand as it resembles femininity and it's a name that has been loved by Malaysians and other people around the world. Being a versatile word, Sarah Skincare is exclusively made for Malaysians by Malaysians. With that being said, this also means that it caters to skincare issues based on the country's weather aspects. Offering affordable yet premium skincare, Sarah Skincare has decided to let be very transparent with their cost in good ingredients to assure the quality of their products would assure results. Sarah Skincare currently offers 3 products namely the Anti Acne Cleansing Foam, the Acne Treatment Duo Serum, and the Enhanced Soothing Serum.

Sarah Skincare Anti Acne Cleansing Foam


Starting off with the Anti Acne Cleansing Foam, it's formulated with Papaya enzymes (a fav ingredient of mine) which is known to exfoliate, removes dead skin, and cleanses the pores thoroughly. To complement that, there's also menthol and coconut oil which helps in removing blackheads while providing the skin with hydration. To basically conclude the functions that this cleanser provides, it would be that in cleanse, exfoliates, and repairs. 


It comes in a bottle of 60ml which pumps out foam. For those who are not aware of the differences between foam and non-foam cleanser, foam cleansers are cleansers that are in a foamy lather, and this type of cleanser is well known to be ideal for removing oil, layers of makeup, and even hard to wash off sunscreen. Usually, they dry out the skin, but what makes Sarah Skincare's cleanser different would be that it hydrates after cleansing since it contains coconut oil making it a well-thought-of cleanser. Upon applying this on my skin, it glides really smooth and cleanses the skin pretty well. After patting my skin dry, my skin definitely doesn't feel oily but instead, it feels moisturizing. 

Sarah Skincare Acne Treatment Duo Serum


I never really knew that there's a specialized serum that not only targets acne but also provides brightening effects as well. The Acne Treatment Duo Serum contains Vitamin B3, Honey extract, Hops Flower Extract, Tiger's Milk Mushroom Extract, and salicylic Acid. Just to conclude the ingredients for you, it's a brightening, anti-acne, anti-aging, repairing, and skin regeneration combination of benefits. But really, I was sold when the list mentioned that they had Salicylic Acid. Salicylic Acid offers micro-exfoliation, removes the oil from the skin while minimizing pores on the skin. For those who know me, you would be aware that my main concerns have always been my pores and pigmentation. 



Honestly, among all the products that they offer, this Duo Serum has the most eye-catching packaging! It could be because it offers a double benefit serum that treats and prevents acne. It comes in a 30ml glass dropper bottle for easy application and in terms of the texture, I would have to say that it's a little thick when applying it on, but after gentle dabs on the skin, it's easily absorbs and poof, no more sticky residue! Gotta say that the feeling of serum on the skin plays a huge role in ensuring that I apply it on, and this passed the test!

Sarah Skincare Enhanced Soothing Serum


And last but not least would be the Enhanced Soothing Serum. I find this serum very versatile as it meant for soothing and repairing while providing a protective barrier for the skin to encourage the skin to repair itself. This serum contains Niacinamide, a vitamin B3 ingredient that brightens while giving anti-acne and anti-aging benefits for the skin. I have been obsessed with this ingredient lately cause it never fails to give instant results upon application. 


It comes in a 30ml dropper bottle and the serum looks a little cloudy than your typical serum. Upon application, the texture is surprisingly very light and moisturizing. Honestly, I find that this serum is an additional add-on to the Acne Treatment Duo Serum and as a replacer to cream moisturizers making it great for those who have oily combination skin like me. Im very particular with my moisturizing cream, and this is a pretty good alternative to prevent overdose sticky moisturizing on the skin. 

VERDICT


As a verdict, I would have to say that im beyond impressed with the range. Despite Sarah Skincare being new in the market, they did a pretty good job of formulating these products. I have been using this for about 2 weeks now before the review and to sum up my experience, no bad skin reactions and my skin does seem to feel smoother and pores were definitely minimized. It's good skin care to maintain the skin condition, and it's gentle enough to reduce any inflammation on the skin too. Currently, a set of three of these products are going at a promotional price of RM128 (NRP: RM183.00), and I would say that it's worth every penny. Considering its a Malaysian brand, I would say that this skincare understands Malaysian skin needs. Enough said. You have to experience it to find out for yourself. As for me, it's definitely my current go to skincare.

Home Delivered Freshly Baked Brownies by Kim Brownies Great Bake | Petaling Jaya based

Hi everyone, just because we're all home trying to stay safe, i had a hard time to satisfy my brownie cravings at home. I stumbled upon Kim Brownies Great Bake on Instagram at @kimbrowniesgreatbake and decide to give her brownies a go. Now, i had the privilege to meet the baker myself when she delivered the brownies, and I was surprised that she's doing this as a business while being a full-time housewife! Being a housewife myself, I kid you not that the amount of juggling that you have to do at home is pretty intense. Time is never really enough when youre a mother, but Kim here made it possible while doing baking as a side business to support the family. 


If youre staying in Petaling Jaya, and youre looking for a baker who bakes brownies that uses organic in a variety of choices to choose from, then Kim is the baker for you. I believe the beauty of home bakers would be that she can accommodate special requests based on your diet or requirement. Since I got a few bites of her brownies, I must say that her brownies are delicious! The thing about brownies that are in stores, they are usually extremely sweet, but Kim's brownies tasted way better with a slight bitterness of dark chocolate that balances the tastebuds enjoying both the sweetness of a brownie and the bitterness of dark chocolate. 


Upon receiving my brownies, it was nicely wrapped in a box with ribbons all over. I must say that it beats getting a box of chocolate because brownies are way better! Kim did a pretty good job in wrapping the brownies up in a box with ribbons to add a special touch to it. So if youre looking to gift the brownies to someone special, Kim has got that covered for you. Upon opening the box, I would say that the arrangement that she did for me was amazing with a mix of variety on toppings. It's so pretty that i could just stare at it all day!

What I like about her brownies would be its because it's not just ordinary brownies, but its individually customized brownies with different toppings so that you can never get bored for every bite you take. The texture of her brownies aren't the wet kind, but it's more to a dryer version of brownies, making it great to be enjoyed with tea and coffee. I enjoyed these with a cup of tea, and i absolutely love the combination. When it comes to texture, i guess it's a personal preference and I like this version more as it adds more texture to the brownies. 

In case youre wondering about the price, Kim Brownies Great Bake brownies start from RM45 onwards based on what kind of presentation that youre looking at. If it's individually added with toppings like mine, you may have to consider the amount of time that needs to be spent to prepare it. If youre looking for a plain tray of brownies, Kim offers that as well. Since they are pretty new, feel free to contact Kim personally and request anything that you have in mind, or simply just order a tray of her signature brownies. Well, keeping this post short, do check her out on IG and contact her via Whatsapp for inquiries.
