Garnier Marula Oil Rant Simple

My First Severe Skin Allergy + A Bit of Rambling

2 weeks ago on a Friday I decided to try a BB cream that is highly raved from almost every corner in the world. Been reading so many good review on this so I finally got it. I had bought this 2 weeks earlier and I think it’s time to put this to a test and do a review on it. I put this on around 8am and just before I step out for lunch I had a slight itch and burning sensation on my forehead. I thought I was just feeling hot so I didn’t pay much attention to it. After lunch I took a look in the mirror and I can see that my forehead swell up a bit and the texture is uneven. I guess that’s what people called as “bee hive” which will only happen if you have allergy. I am fortunate to have the type of skin that I can slap on anything so I have not had this before and I was clueless. By the time I got off work I couldn’t stand the increasing itch on my face. After I reached home and removed my makeup my mum commented that I was looking pink. By night time I can see that I turned to red and my face is slightly hot when I touch it. Then I knew something is not right. I didn’t apply any skin care that night. But my face was so itchy that I applied Clinique Moisture Surge on because the gel cools my face down. I couldn’t sleep properly that night as it started to get painful. I remember waking up at 3am to look at the mirror. I guess I was hoping that everything will be okay after a sleep but I was wrong. I was still quite red as before and this time my face is swollen. The next morning I woke up with burning hot, maroon color, itchy and painful face. When I looked into the mirror I was horrified. My entire face was so burning red and I was a few tone darker. My face swelled up quite a lot too. I looked like I had severe sun burn. By 9am I rushed to the nearest skin specialist clinic bringing along the said BB cream. Doctor confirmed that I had severe skin allergy and it’s quite bad judging from the fact that I only had the BB cream in less than 9 hours. I was so worried that it’s going to be a permanent damage as my neighbor had the same thing too and it’s permanent for her. Doctor said it is not but will take a longer time to recover so I need to bear going out with this face for some time. I kept asking the doctor if it’s going to be permanent for several more time before leaving the clinic. I was prescribed with anti-itch med for morning and a different one for night as well as a face cream. The culprit? It’s the famous Garnier BB Cream. Hell yeah.

Asience Canmake Garnier Ginvera Majolica Majorca Sasa Watsons

Drugstore & Sasa Mini Haul

*** Pls ignore the terrible image which is taken from my BB as my digicam is spoilt 🙁

Anyway, went on some drugstore & Sasa shopping spree yesterday with mummy.

First stop is Watson’s. Been searching for some lipgloss and I find that Majorlica Majorca’s Honey Pump Gloss Neo is the perfect lil size for me. The tube is not too big and not too small. Perfect size for people who’s “hangat-hangat tahi ayam” like me lol.

Got this in PK247. Although it look darn pinkish but I love how it came out nude on the lips.
Name: Majorlica Majorca Honey Pump Gloss Neo (PK247)
Price: RM17.91 after discount 
My thought: ABSOLUTELY loving this! Its not sticky at all and stays on for hours. I love how it turns to nude pink when applied although it looks very pink from the outside. It looks like it contains some shimmer but not noticable after applied. Weird. Will definately bought another colour. Maybe the beige neutral colour?

Asience came out with a new type of hair product range which is for normal to oily scalp, hair that is prone to tagling and lacks volume. So I decided to try it.
Name: Asience Nature Smooth Shampoo
Price: RM14.90 

My thought: Not so keen with the scent. I still prefer the scent from Deep Nourishing line.

Was looking for some cheap & good facial cleanser and this was on a promo; buy 2nd item for 50% discount. How can I resist this. It’s darn cheap. Mum agrees too.
Name: Garnier Aqua Defence Moisturizing Cleansing Foam
Price: RM10.90 for 1st tube, RM5.45 for 2nd tube 

My thought: Its good in removing dirt and oil from my face. Smells like Bath & Body Works in Cucumber Melon. Cheap, affordable & good!

My usual shower scrub was on promo too!

Name: Ginvera SPA Massaging Shower Scrub (Green Tea)
Price: RM10.43 
My thought: Good for back acne. Won’t write much on this as I reviewed this before at my previous blog. Will post it out here soon.
After all of that, we went to next door which Sasa is. Been wanting to get Canmake eyeshadow badly as theirs is the most shimmering of all I ever seen hehe. As soon as we got in, one of the sales girl was quarrelling with the store supervisor. It was bad & humiliating till the sales girl who was serving me feels bad and ashame. Mum obviously was in shock of all that lol. Me on the other hand pretending nothing happen and continue to choose the eyeshadow. I was previously in retail operation so all this isn’t a big deal for me. But I still think that no matter what, they are not suppose to quarrel in front of customers.

Anyway, was thinking to get blue shadows. Then changed my mind to earthy neutral colour. Then decided to get this with a light pinkish peach instead. I’m so indecisive.
Name: Canmake Eye Nuance (#22)
Price: RM31.35 after 15% discount from RM36.90
My thought: Looks very shimmery and gorgeous. Kinda disappointed as it turns to very light nude colour if applied with eyeshadow brush :(. I re-dab the light pink using my finger and looks at least a bit of pink. Well, at least it doesn’t give me puffy eyes. The dark colour is very pigmented but not shimmery. Hmmm weird. I actually was thinking to sell this off & get another colour! *lol*
