REVIEW ON CURE NATURAL AQUA GEL

Hi beauties,

If you have preference for gentle exfoliating products to get rid of dead skin cells and to improve the texture of your skin without using those grainy scrubs then do have a look at this skincare products from Japan.

Here is the review on the Japanese Cure Natural Aqua Gel on which it sold 1 bottle every 12 seconds.

Cure Natural Aqua Gel bottle is made from plastic and the liquid inside comes out in form of thicker clear gel water which should be applied after cleansing on a dry skin.  Cure Natural Aqua Gel is made from 90% water so it is gentle to the skin for physical exfoliation. Although some people said it doesn't work and those are just gimmicks, I do think that it helps with exfoliation especially for people who could not afford those expensive luxurious brush and too harsh to use grainy scrubs.

If you are one of those people that generally doesn't work that well with chemical peeling that dissolving skin protein with strong acids (AHA, BHA, fruits acids, glycolic acids, etc.) then one can try Cure Natural Aqua Gel which removes those dead skin gently. There is no need to apply pressure to 'peel' the skin off. I just gently move my fingers in circle and if there are dead cells, it comes out in forms of tiny balls.

My skin does look smoother, brighter and softer after using Cure Natural Aqua Gel.  However, one with skin problem such as acne should avoid using it since it can aggravate skin.  Cure Natural Aqua Gel is for cleansing the texture from some dead skin cells trap on top of the skin.  It doesn't have any fragrance, colour and preservative so one can use on your body as well.

I use it once every week. It is not recommended to use daily since it is a waste of products to keep removing the dead skin every day.

I know that peeling gel get bad reputation that it is just some sort of balls and some people are still adamant about it being useless but then rave about having sheet mask doing miracles on their skin immediately which I think both doesn't have any true unbiased scientific studies on them.  I do feel that peeling gel is probably the same as clay mask that helps to reduce sebum and clean the skin better but of course it is not a miracle. So, there is my take on peeling gel.

Overall, Cure Natural Aqua Gel is a gentle physical exfoliator to brighten the skin.  However, not recommend if you have active acne on your skin.  The Cure water treatment cream is more suitable as a gentle moisturiser for acne prone skin since it is water based.



Product retails for
Cure Natural Aqua Gel 250g.  Made in Japan.
Available in Sasa, Muse Watsons and Parkson.

GUIDE ON SHOPPING FOR ASIAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS IN MALAYSIA

Hi Asian beauty products,

Here is a shopping guide for Asian Beauty products in Malaysia.

If you are coming to Malaysia or having overlay in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia you might be interested to shop for Asian cosmetics or skincare products in Malaysia because like many people said, it is a shopping paradise because everything is cheap here.

shopping guide for Asian Beauty products in Malaysia


It isn't the same thing for us who doesn't earn much but well...

I actually put up this guide as a request so I hope that you will find this helpful.  Since I cannot afford to travel to Kuala Lumpur often because of reasons(money problem&the distance of 8 hours away),  I hope for your understanding.

If you are in Kuala Lumpur, you can actually find most of the popular drugstore places for Asian brands.  Most of shopping places are in popular shopping malls such as the Midvalley Megamall, One Utama, Paradigm, Pavilion, Suria KLCC, Sunway Pyramid.  Another shopping place are Queensbay in Penang and Suria Sabah Mall which is in Sabah.

There are information counters in all those shopping malls where one can ask for the direction for the shop. Those shopping malls opened from 10am to 10pm so shop all you want. It is just most malls are really very crowded during weekends XD so becareful with your things.



In Every shopping Malls

Daiso-Best Japanese place to shop for RM5.90(price increased).  I have been to the one in Pavillion, Midvalley(2 floor) and Sungai Wang are really big.  Konjac sponge, silicon mask, decant spray bottles, snacks are some of the stuff worth buying.


Watsons- This is Asian drugstore where you can find many varieties of Taiwanese brands, Korean and Japanese brands.  Each Watsons has different kind of brands depending on the size of that outlets.  Some of the brands are in the lowest shelves so look everywhere for them XD. They have house brand as well.  Do check the link for the list of full brands available in Watsons since there are too many of them for me to list them all down here.

However, there are some brands that are only available online such as Cosrx(only saw two of the products in there) because of the limited amount of products. There are also some brands(Canmake, Peripera, Marjolica Marjoca) that are not available online but they available in Watsons outlets.

Hada Labo, Naruko, My Beauty Diary, My scheming, Himalaya neem products, Mediheal Line friend, Dr.Check Hydrocolloid, Miacare hydrocolloid acne patches, Ellips for hair, Mandom Bifesta cleansing water, Coni beauty jelly mask, Leaders sheet mask, Sexy look sheet mask, Lovemore sheet masks, Kinohitmisu health products, Liese hair products, Moist Diane Japanese hair product, Mediheal sheet masks, Freshel are some of the products that you can check it out. As for makeup,  Koji Dolly Wink, Kiss Me, Canmake, Ma Cherie, Senka, Tsubaki, Peripera lip ink and Clio are some of the brands.


Guardian-This is another popular drugstore that has a lot of brands that are exclusive to them.  So, always do go into Guardian to check and compare the prices with Watsons for that extra saving XD.
They also have their own house brands.

List of all their exclusive brands HERE
Cathy Dolls(Thailand brand), Berrisom, Aiken tea tree oil(dupe of Body Shop), Garden of Eden (facial oils), Dr.Morita, Lakme, K Palette, Dejavu, Canmake, Biore, Sunplay, Hello Kitty, Forencos 7 day masks, Japan Gals, Hada Labo.

Kailijumei jelly lipstick, Choonee, Mentholatum(lip balm), Paladio and etc.

Himalaya Herbal Healthcare- this is a quiet shop which feels really healthy and so mostly people are afraid to walk in.  However, I said to walk in and find that Neem capsules and some of the Aryuvedic herbs which are available in their outlets and not in Watsons outlets or Guardian outlets.  However, one might have to ask a few outlets as it is always sold out.  I like their Neem mask pack and their Neem cleanser.

Sasa Malaysia- one of the biggest Sasa is in Midvalley so here you can find a lot of products as well.  Mediheal, Dr.Young, Dr. Wu, Haruhada, Shills, Kikumasamune, Oozoo, Pupa, Koji, JayJun, Canmake, Kiss Me, Koji Dolly Wink, Kose, Dejavu, B'Liv, Darkness, Son&Park etc

* You could click on the main words to go into the website of the malls. Then, click on the beauty and wellness to look into the shops that you would like to check out.


The Saem Malaysia outlets are in only in Kuching and Miri Sarawak. You can find it in famous online shopping Hermo.MY
Always21-an affordable Korean brand for students. Here is for list of outlets if interested. Also not transport friendly.




I think this is all for the guide.  Enjoy your shopping in Malaysia and let me know if there are any questions.  There are some other shopping malls within walking distance near Pavillion such as Lot10, Sungai Wang and Times Square which you can check them out as well. The structure in Sungai Wang is confusing and there isn't much to shop in there so not mentioning it here. Many of the shops in Times Square are available in Pavillion so I guess it is pointless to make you walk 20 minutes over to that malls XD.


I am not paid for this guide and not affiliated with them.  As of today, there are some companies that did not reply to my request for list of brands in their shop so I couldn't accurately list out everything.

The opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.

😍 Canmake Transparent Finish Powder comes in Pearl Natural and Pearl Lavender.  The one I have here is the Pearl Lavender which explain the Lavender colour.

Of course the light sturdy plastic packaging is the center of the beautiful princess appearance that strikes my heart.

It comes with a mirror and the sponge is soft.  It easier to use brush for easier application but the sponge will do as well.  The powder is really fine and soft.  It doesn't contain fragrance so it is good if you doesn't like fragrance makeup product.

Canmake Transparent Finish Powder does contain gold flecks that provide slight brightening but not to the point that looking like a disco ball and you will only notice the gold fleck if you are 1cm away from my face. From far, it is just a nice translucence skin.  The powder feels soft to touch and does keep the face matte for 8 hours. It doesn't break me out or cause me clogged my pores, easily wash off using my normal cleanser and it is not waterproof.

However, it will crease if applied too many times(more than 5 times) on the skin so ease up on the amount of powder use.

Overall, Canmake Transparent Finish Powder is a pretty good oil control for face, affordable price and for you who just want to tone down the oily sleek of skin that some foundation or BB cream makes.



Product retails for
Canmake Transparent Finish Powder RM63.90
Made in Japan.

REVIEW ON KIKU MASAMUNE JAPANESE SAKE BREWING SKIN CARE WASH FOAM

Hi Sake filtrate lover,

I am sorry for this lateness in reviewing products from this Japanese's sake brewery, Kikumasamune.  All the products from Kiku masamune contains ferments so for those who are into affordable Japanese skincare products here is the review for the foam cleanser contains sake filtrate.  Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin Care Wash Foam.

Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin Care Wash Foam

Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin Care Wash Foam does foams a lot with a pea size products.  It has a PH of 8 which is high.  It sure cleanses the skin too well that I feel that my skin is tight.  The product come up from the tube in forms of emulsion so it is easy to squeeze too much if one is not careful.  It does remove all the other makeup including waterproof makeup which I guess is the reason for its high PH.  Higher PH cleanses better but also harsher on the skin.

Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin Care Wash Foam contains vitamin E, sake filtrate, horse placenta proteinm foaming agents and cleansing agents.  As with all the other Kikumasamune products, this smells like rice ferment smells but it can smell like banana or bubblegum to others.

Overall, Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin Care Wash Foam is more suitable for someone with lower skin PH (males), oily skin type,  too lazy for double cleansing at night, doesn't mind the horse placenta ingredient in it, love ferments and like foam cleanser.

I prefer the Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel.

*contains horse placenta

Product retails for
Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin Care Wash Foam 200g RM39.90.  A available in Aeon Welness Midvalley or in Sunway Pyramid, Sasa and in Amazon

For more information, please visit official Kikumasamune website. Product is sent for my consideration. However, the opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.

REVIEW ON KIKU MASAMUNE JAPANESE SAKE BREWING SKIN CARE CLEANSING GEL

Hi Kiku masamune lover,

Kiku masamune are famous for the which is Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care Lotion(high moist) for the hydrating properties, giant size and ferments.

If there is another product from the Kiku masamune that I like from the all the other 5 products that I have tried is this Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel.

Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel

Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel contains sake filtrate, arbutin, horse protein, parabens and some other cleansing agents.  The cleanser comes up as opaque pink gel which doesn't foam at all. I do need to use a little more compare to Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin Care Wash Foam to avoid tugging my skin. The gel is smooth and is like jelly which is nice.

Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel has PH of 5-6 which I had checked with my lousy PH paper XD .  I use it as my morning cleanser since it is gentle and does leave my skin hydrated.  It smells like a gentle bubblegum to me but some other may think differently of the scent.

It comes a huge tube, affordable price and gentle on the skin.  Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel doesn't removed makeup that well so use an oil cleanser or micellar water or makeup remover before this cleanser.

Overall, I think Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel is a great morning low PH cleanser for every skin type, loves ferment, no allergic to the ingredients listed and prefer gel cleanser.

I just wish that they will remove the animal ingredient from it.  I feel bad for using it each time T_T . I don't know how many of you out there share the same sentiment as I am.


I prefer this Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel over the Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin Care Wash Foam .  However, you might different opinion.


*contains horse placenta

Product retails for
Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care cleansing gel 200g RM42.90.   available in Aeon Welness Midvalley or in Sunway Pyramid, Sasa or Amazon. also available in Amazon (US reader)

Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care Lotion comes in a giant bottle of 500ml for about USD12 which is really affordable considering that it has sake filtrate in it.  The ingredients are shorter compare to the high moist one and it does have alchohol denat and added another paraben in it. It doesn't have malititol, methyl gluceth-10, hydroxyethylcellulose, phenoxyethanol, hydrogenated castor oil and no ceramide in it. The reason for the less moisturising effect.


The lotion comes out watery and it has the same signature smells of sake.  It get absorbs into the skin or evaporated into the air really fast as well compare to the high moist one without leaving any traces.  I think this is good for someone that hates feeling anything on the face for more that a few seconds.  It isn't as hydrating as the high moist one but it does have the silky feeling when I touch my skin with my hands.

Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care Lotion also has the same irritating pump which just spray out in any direction it wants.  It is affordable cheap toner that works great as mist for setting makeup, spray into oily hair and cooling mist in the hot weather.  Personally it will works great for someone with oily skin type in high humidity places.

Overall, Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care Lotion is more for oily skin type, during summer, high humidity that cause problems for products to absorb, hates waiting for products to absorb into the skin, no problem with ferments and animal ingredient in it.

As for preference, Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care Lotion and Kiku masamune Japanese Sake Brewing Skin care Lotion(high moist) are both toners that I like to use depending on the weather and my skin condition.
