Review & Benefits of CC Cream Oil-Free with SPF50 | Hansaegee Nature

Hello Assalamualaikum!

Wowwww.. It's been so freaking longgggg since I write anything in the blog! 

I am back writing just to share with you a new product that I have just been introduced to!

I'm kinda still traumatized with my experience with a brand that caused irritation to my facial skin and it lead to my first Tribunal Court case guys!! *shaking my head as I typed this*. I will definitely share this story once I've organized my thought and fully ready.. 

Anywaysssss.. I assure you this product I am about to talk about is worth to be shared! hehe.

I have been incorporating this product in my day skincare routine as sunscreen for 2 weeks. The last step in the routine and the most satisfying I would say! 


Let me give some more brief explanation on the background of the product first.
So, this product is a Korean skincare distributed by Hansaegee Nature - a Korean skincare brand based from Malaysia.

I have reviewed 1 other product from them which is the ALOE AC CLEAN BUBBLE CLEANSER.

So, this is product I am going to talk more about is CC cream with SPF50+ PA+++ which claimed to be a tri-functional cosmetic - Whitening & Anti-wrinkle & SPF50+, PA+++ - that does complexion control, brightening and sunscreen effect.

You can go to this page from Hansaegee Nature itself  to see what it says about this product: https://hansaegee.com/shop/skin-care/gold-nano-cc-cream/s-recover-cc-cream.html

I am not going to write more of what Hansaegee Nature has to say about this product but more of my experience. Rest assured that this is my honest say okay. heee. 

First thing first, I cannot restrain myself from talking about the packaging. I'm a very visual person. haha. I really like the white and gold colour combination. The tube is sleek for a regular size of 50ml.  However, I find it a little bit hard to press the cream out of the tube especially with left hand that has less force. Which implies that it's very sturdy and the cream also has quite a thick consistency to begin with.

Note that this is not like a typical CC cream. At least I never tried a CC cream like this. The bigggg difference is, it is a white cream CC cream! No hassle to find the right shade for you because it is one that fits for all! hehe.


If you look very closely into the cream, you can see that this cream is infused with teeny-tiny particles of brown, black and orange-y. I put it on a piece of tissue paper and witness how this combination turned into a nice skin colour! Cannot really see on the skin though but I guess this is how the skin can look nicely brighten without looking grey or ashy.


The cream is thick but as you applied, it feels very lightweight. It's not oily at all.
Applying it on a bare skin would leave a soften skin, moisturized but with powdery finishing.
Buttt, if you apply it on top of moisturizer, it gives a glowing finishing. I like how it act as my makeup base.


I would say this CC cream is more of a skincare than a makeup. The coverage is on the light to sheer side and not buildable. Therefore, it is perfect for those who likes light make up. Like staying at home now for MCO, but still want to look good hehe.

Excuse my post-extraction face. I really gotta show you how it looked on me on bare face:-
  I applied few drops of face oil and look how the lighting captured my face!

Lastly, the thing that I want to highlight is the ingredients in this product. I am currently learning more of skincare ingredients and I like to properly organize my skincare routine in terms of ingredients to avoid problems like over-exfoliation which I encountered not too long ago. It's pretty complicated so let me try to share my skincare ingredients learning curve with you guys when I have the time yaaa. hee.

Not everything need to be taken note of but anyway, basically, some common ingredients need to take note on are:-
  1. No Paraben, No Sulfate
  2. Titanium Dioxide - which is the mineral sunscreen used and it sit on top of your skin and reflect UV rays away from your body so be sure to double cleanse this in the evening.
  3. Octocrylene - which is the chemical suncreen which absorbs into the skin and dissipates the UV rays through a chemical reaction. It can sometime cause irritation and discomfort, especially for children with sensitive skin.
  4. Niacinamide - is a great ingredient that possess anti-aging properties. It's one of my favourite ingredients in a skincare. It helps with fine lines, dark spots and pores.
  5. Fragrance - is a downside because it could cause irritation too for sensitive skin. But so far my skin managed. To be honest, I am pretty suprised to see this considering that there's hardly any that I could smell except that it smell like a typical cream. The portion must be so little so it shouldn't be a concern.


I have actually posted a video on my instagram (and it becomes an igtv because it's longer than 1minute - I just have a lot to show in the video XD ) on how I applied it and how it looked on my skin. Please watch it if you haven't!! hehe. https://www.instagram.com/p/B_FNyfQFdKd/


That should be all I have to say today about this new product that I tried. Give it a try too if you're curious! hehe.

Thanks for reading!
Until next post ya!
Happy fasting, Ramadhan Kareem!
XOXO

Planning for Amaan Arjuna's 1st Birthday Celebration



I just couldn’t find the right time to just sit and write in the blog anymore!! Too occupied. It took me forever to finish this entry. Amaan’s 2nd birthday is coming next month and mommy’s been party planning and it’s worth sharing with my readers. Practically the same tips can be applied every year.

Amaan's first year passed by in a blink of eyes.

So blessed to have the chance to celebrate good days with him.








Let's get to the party planninggggg!!!

FYI, Amaan's 1st birthday celebration was included with the Aqiqah ceremony.


Budget

Let’s be realistic here. Everything needs money nowadays. A successful party planning is to plan within your budget. Allocate a sum of money that you can afford to spend for the party. Then work from there.


Guests

From the budget, you can already estimate how many pax you can invite to celebrate the happy day together. The more the merrier, of course, but only few pax of direct family members is not any less meaningful.


Venue

From the number of pax, you should be able to imagine what kind of venue is suitable to accommodate all. Home or restaurant or a hall would be the options of venue for the birthday celebration. Of course, you need to take budget into account here. Other than your home, you will need to pay for rent okay. For example, a pax of 100 people cannot fit a simple KFC restaurant, right? Or maybe can? Haha. Do your study. I don’t know :P

I chose to do at my mum's house in Melaka. Mainly because of the families and relatives to be invited over. Then to accommodate about 100 pax, I needed to find tent with the tables and chairs.

Time

To me, it’s more appropriate to invite people over for lunch or dinner. Not in between.


Main Food

From the point above, you will need to prepare a proper main food. The simplest option is a nasi ayam or nasi tomato that will never go wrong. Hehe.

Then also for the Aqiqah we had grill lamb! I guess this was the star food of the day haha. I took a package from @ajmalagrofarm for the lamb and side  dishes as well as a jelly drink as dessert. The bomb  dot com. that was really good. even to date, i still remember how good they were!







Theme

Visual part is my favourite part. Hehe. Decide the theme for the party! The simplest theme would be a colour theme. But it wouldn’t be fun for a kid’s birthday party to be just colour themed, it should include a cartoon character too!

For Amaan's party, I chose Pinkfong Baby Shark Theme - Amaan's obsession. Theme colour was blue. So, everything else revolves around this two things. Including our outfits.

Wondering what Amaan's 2nd birthday's theme.. stay tuned! haha






Candy/Dessert Buffet

I consider this candy/dessert buffet as a photo booth too. It’s a space where you can take the right birthday photos. This category, comes with a few subs.

First, you need to decide whether you want to DIY or you will need other people to do it for you. There’s plenty of services out there nowadays! It’s only a matter of time and moneyyyy huhu. Then, decide what’s the size you need. From the size, you need to estimate what will you need to be on the table, what dessert, how many of them, and of course, needs to be within your budget.

What would a birthday celebration like without birthday cake?! To follow the theme, I needed a customized cake of course. A Pinkfong baby shark cake from ig @sofyabakery. Ordered all the way from KL, traveled back to Melaka. I didn't get to find a satisfying bakers to get my preferred cake in Melaka at that time. Perhaps, I wasn't searching enough because I didn't have much time and I was in KL most of the time.

Other than the cake, I have polka dots apams from @apampolkadotnomei,
pavlova, cupcakes, and cheese tart from @faraally. So yummyyyyyyy

















Decorations

This only applies if you DIY the above category. Balloons, frames, backdrop, the party kit etc.
Table clothes are fabrics I bought from Nagoya Textiles.

For the balloons, there are so many different kind, I was the last to know haha. Balloons arch, pillars, garland etc. I only knew the balloons which I blow or the helium balloons. So of course I would get the helium ones. Easy to work with to decorate (and easy to be given away to kids if they want- which is most of them -_-“ haha). I bought them from a balloon store and ask for delivery at my house on the day of the party.

I decided to go for banner as the background. Customized by @aryanacandybuffet - Made the whole look look a lot more fun and cheerful for the party.

You will also need different kinds of stands and trays for the birthday cakes and dessert, obviously.

Other than that, I put blue flowers in vase and wood letter AA (stands for Amaan Arjuna , if you don’t already know haha) from Kaison, baby photos in frames from Ikea, and Amaan’s 1st year sum up photos frame which I bought in Shopee as well as canisters which I found exist in my house for no reason :P













To many many more years to come. Aminnnn. 
Happy Birthday my baby <3






















Thanks for reading!
Until next time!
XOXO
