Nivea Fruity Shine Balm

I had considered this lip balm to be reviewed after a week of using it but instead I waited for a year to do so. The pictures inserted looked clean and new as I shoot them before they get unpleasant and ugly. Without rambling too much, I'll be reviewing the Nivea Fruity Shine lip balm in Strawberry flavour.


Packaging: Even though there's nothing extravaganza or unique about the casing and design printed, but the plastic container is in pretty good quality and sturdy. It's easy to twist up and down the product (which is a major issue sometimes). The most important thing about a lip balm is the closure of its cap. The cap clicks to seal the product in place and it locks perfectly without loosing itself from the container, considering the price tag.

Product: Easy to find in any drugstore. There are tiny, fine glitters in the lip balm but the glitters are not visible after application. I love that this balm is tinted as well. The flavour that I have is strawberry, which represents red colour. The colour of the products runs true to its packaging. For other flavour like cherry, the packaging is in dark red colour, and the product is in dark red as well. It works well as a lip balm in moisturising the lips. Even when I have crack lips, this lip balm does the job to smoothen my lips. I mean its not the best or super long lasting lip balm in locking my lips moisture, but it does help in concealing my crack lips for a period of time. Constant reapplication will maximise the effectiveness of the lip balm (if you desperately need to cure your lips asap). It also gives a slight tint of colour to my lips. Especially in the morning, my lips are pale. This balm brings some colour to my lips and it looks natural on my lips. This product also taste like strawberry as stated. 

Country of Origin: Germany

Quantity: I apply this balm almost everyday before school. It lasted almost a year now and it's still halfway through. In my opinion, this product is worth the price. 

Longevity: Last for an hour depending on the usage. If there's no contact with food and water, it probably lasts about an hour. If not, it will fade once you eat or drink. I recommend to reapply after every food or drink, especially if you have chap lips. 

I highly recommend Nivea's lip balm because of the effectiveness to cure crack lips and the price range is for everyone. This is one of the best drugstore lip balm I've used so far.

March/April Photo Diary | 2017

This is the time of the month where I document and share a little snippets of my life and moments that I hope to look back and have fun counting all the blessings in the future. Have a blessed weekend! ;)

This section is pretty self-explanatory. I apologise in advance for my weird thumb pose LOL

We all know I love sushi so here's a picture to dedicate my love for them <3

My sis's dough-nut picks (from left to right- pumpkin seeds, tiramisu, green tea).

Baked this vegan lemon cake and they taste amazing although I'll have to improve my baking skills (excuse the burnt but not-so-burnt base with *tears of joy emoji in a 'WHAT??!?' context*).

Spent some time with college friends over a lunch to catch up with them :)

Ugly thumb with tastiest cheese snacks- I mean I'm milk intolerant but this is too good to pass it up (guilt).

Yet another weird thumb with my favourite hong kong cake. They're the best steam cake imo (stepping up the internet slang game).

An apple pie (one of my favesssss desert) from John's Pie. The pastry is soft and the apple sauce filling glides and melts smoothly in the mouth.

King's Curry
My friend persuaded me to try the best cheese nun (again I cannot pass this up) in town. Although you can't see the gooey, melting effect of the cheese and butter in the picture, but they are super stretchy like pizzas. They taste bomb.

Interior's Inspiration
Don't ever ask me to leave a furniture shop asap. I love visiting furniture shop to touch everything I possibly can (not those glassy ones, of course), appreciating their beauty and imagine how I can decorate a room... ignore my imagination HAHA

Fashion Inspiration from Mango
The Spring/Summer 2017 collection is beautifully designed. I love most of the details on each pieces from this season especially the floral patterns and here's a few that I snap for inspo.

John's Pie 
The food here is real good. I never taste any western food that are extraordinary until I ordered the meals at this place. The dishes are more than just pepper sauce and fish and chips, they served roasted and baked meals. The food is reasonably priced as the portion (between RM10-RM20 per dish). However, the drinks are pricier which I don't think it's worth it. My mom even talked to the owner and she said that the food served in the cafe used only herbs and natural ingredients- without additives flavours. If you want to get a healthy dish, this place is for you.

I had been dealing with stress and anxiety for the past 2 weeks due to my assignments. I was the kind of girl who strived hard to achieve good outcome so to not to disappoint my family, especially my parents who had worked hard to send me for higher education. I never want to let anyone down, basically. I wasn't dealing my work really well because of people that cooperated less with me- or maybe I was just not doing well enough. Perhaps I was putting too much trust on a person that I barely knew. I didn't understand how some people can use their inefficiency to ruin other's hard work. Lesson of the day: If possible, do everything you can by yourself because some people are just going to destroy it and you looses out, not them. I realised I understand Ed Sheeran's song, Save Myself better now. Moving on to the outfit portion of this post, I wore this look to college except for the hat, choker, sunglasses and purse. I was glad that I found this wrap skirt from my mom's wardrobe. I love the fit of it and I styled it into a sporty, festival look.

Wearing: Cheetah kid's t-shirt, Mahuis choker, Cotton On hat
