My poor hair was badly tangled due to dryness of Siberian wind I experience in Busan. I was so worried that I have to shave my hair due to terrible hair I have. isk isk isk

At the same time was so amaze with Busan woman who have nice hair. At least theirs look nice and not tangled like mine.

I went into the Nature Republic for some face mask purchase. At the same time ask the sales girl to introduce me something for the tangled and dried hair. I told her my seaweed hair are soon turning into dried pollack hair and she laugh at me and said cannot be ...cannot be..this is hair not seaweed!

Of course la...I just joking to you la woman....haissshhh!!!!

Where is your sense of humor???

Walked out from the shop with this Argan Oil Hair Essence from Nature Republic. I don't know how much they sell here in Malaysia but I gotten mine at KRW18,000 for 60ml.

IMA totally love the smells of this oil.
Don't know how to describe but pleasant sweet smells unlike that Rose Hip Oil.

What IMA know Argan oil is famous for hair! Thats it! Very limited knowledge on this.
Then when reached Malaysia and did some research has many benefits too.

 1. Skin Moisturiser - helps to hydrate and soften skin because this oil is also high contain of vitamin E and fatty acid. Its absorb easily and not greasy. You can use for face and body like lotion.

2. Hair conditioner - famous for hair because it proven to make hair softer, silkier and shinier. It helps to tame the frizzy hair like mine.

3. Sleek and Shine Styling - since it has ability to tame frizz and give shine, argan oil also commonly used as styling agent. Use it after your blow dry hair.

4. Anti Aging - instead of rosehip oil which is less pleasant smells. Let us use Argan oil which give skin a youthful glow and reduce the visibility of wrinkles. Its anti oxidant effect makes argan oil the ideal anti aging products. Massage few drops into your face and neck before go to bed.

5. Dry Skin conditions - people who suffering dry skin or conditions like eczema which can leave skin raw , flaky and itchy can use argan oil too. It helps prevent dryness and also soothe skin.

6. Acne - since this oil promote healing and soothing and moreover this oil are non greasy. Acne is cause by oily skin. Argan none greasy and helps to balance skin by providing natural moisture. It heal damanged skin cells and reduce inflammation.
7. Foot , Hand and Nail Treatment - try massaging few drops of argan oil into cuticles , hands and feet before go to bed each night. It helps for crack feet and dry nails.

8. Lip moisturiser - rub few drops to dry lip as lip balm and be sure to wipe off any excess. It helps your lips to stay plump, soft and supple.

Magic Oil indeed!!!

All This… In One Bottle

The best thing about argan oil is that is can be safely used in its pure form and doesn’t need to be bought as an ingredient in lotions, conditioners and moisturizers. One bottle of argan oil is extremely versatile and can be used for all these benefits. This miracle oil will change the way you live your life.

Benefit of Nature Republic Argan Essential Deep Care Oil Essense :

* Water nutrition - Essense of intensive care for damaged hair

* Argan oil - Since it also contains evening primrose oil, camellia oil, rosehip oil, silk powder and other spices so this Essence helps to Moisture hair, gives more nutrition and soften hair. 

How to use Nature Republic Argan Oil Hair Essence?

- Use it after shampoo dried hair.
- Take small amount and massage on the dried and tangled hair!

11th October 2014, Saturday

From wet market to dry market and since many attractions are just walking distance nearby, I end up at this most busy shopping street BIFF Square.

Still wanna know how to take subway to BIFF Market????

- Take subway line 1 (orange color)
- Stop at Jagalchi station
- Then take exit no. 7 and walk about 5 minutes.

Haishhhh you won't lost here since too many people walking towards the same place. If lost just asked le.... donno how to ask? Just point le...that is how I travel!

What is BIFF Square?

BIFF square is a film festival place to celebrate Busan International Film Festival which is one of the biggest film festivals in Asia. It takes place during autumn every year.

Yup! IMA was there during that time.

IMA don't really come here for shopping. I came here just to taste the famous Hotteuk opposite Busan Theater. Serious so famous like at tripadvisor suggested to come here and try this famous hotteuk. The line was very long to buy this Hotteuk! So damn laku!!!! Sure rich one this seller!
Mother collected the money from the people and she has 3 Sons. One son take care of the dough ,then one frying the dough and the last one take care of the distribution.

My opinion????
Overrated Hotteuk!
I love the Ajumma Hotteuk at Gamcheon Culture Village. Ajumma...I miss your Hotteuk!!!

Main attraction, this streets full of fashion wear , cosmetics and chic cafe. Who loves shopping????? You will go crazy if you reach this place! Everywhere salesssssss!!!! Events happening on your left right front back and around you....whoaaaaaa!!!!!

Walked painful leg from Gamcheon Culture Village still not heal yet. I am here...I need to walk while I am still here....yeah greedy mode again!

I saw this Ajumma selling the goguma aka sweet potato. If don't buy regret forever...I bought it for KRW3,000 aka RM10 one bag. WTH!!!!
So bloody hurt my teeth....huhuhuhuhuh...why? why? why I wasted my RM10 for this hard goguma???? Lesson learn????

My leg so damn hurt!!!! I can't really walk anymore!
I actually tour the whole BIFF Square and also Gwangbok - ro Fashion street too. That fashion street really full of brand name and imported clothing line. This is another haven for shoppers who love 20% - 30% discounts.

I head down to subway station and who knows down there another shopping area. I love window shopping so I still walk one round there to satisfy my greediness to make my trip worth it!

huhuhhuhuh... reached hotel room and soaked my feet in warm water...huhuhuhuh suffer!!!!

Next is my adventure during my 40th birthday on 12th Oct 2014.

Painful and satisfying adventure!!!! WTH!

Happy Monday everyone!!!!
I wish a happy working day ahead for all!

I wanted to post my Busan and Jeju trip entry but my mind keep telling me I am also a beauty blogger so need to balance up my entry.

Two months back I attended Melvita beauty workshop and totally in love with this organic brand. I gotten myself this Rose Hip Oil to cure my over dried skin. I used to hate the smells of Rose Hip Oil, but its all gone since this oil totally benefited my skin.

There are many benefits of Rose Hips oil :

* Reduce stretch marks and can helps toward weight loss if massage daily with this oil
* Softens the appearance of blemishes and make complexion more radiant
* Great soothing after -sun
* Recommended for very dry skin (not recommended for skin with tendency towards acne)

Why IMA choose Melvita?
* First cold -pressing organic oil
* Colorant and preservative free

Melvita Rose Hips oil is made from seed of Chilean Wild Rose and this oil is rich in essential fatty acids and helps nourishes and regenerates even the most delicate and lifeless skin.

I used almost quarter bottle of this oil for two months. The result really helps towards my over dried skin. Oh well....IMA ageing factor really make skin drying up! Gotta do something before it get more worst and to prevent botox! WTH!

I wanna age in style so????? Slowing down the process is very crucial for me.

How I use Rose Hip Oil?
- Use it on after clean face, toning and moisturise skin at night before sleep.
- I squeeze 20 sen size of oil on palm then squeeze both hand like you are warming up and pat on face.
- Yup! a lil bit unpleasant smells and if you have hubby or bf sleep next to you....hehehehe they may not like it . IMA don't need to bother of all this....wink win wink
Tomorrow will be the entry for Busan : BIFF Square Shopping Street!

p.s : Special Request from Mummy Dearie for me to put website and price for Melvita Rose Hip Oil and where to purchase.

You can purchase from Melvita website online shopping for 50ml cost you RM148/- bottle.
