Himalaya Product Review

This entry going to be Super Long...I learned my 'Chongheiness' from my ex Boss.

I am one of those lucky Caterpillars of The Butterfly Project to be invited for Himalaya - Neem Product range review at Fuwa Fuwa Bakery, The School, Jaya One, Petaling Jaya on 2nd Aug 2014. First time at The School and I reached there quite early around 9:30am and the event only start at 10:30am.

I saw many boyfriends and hubbies pushing the trollies and lifting and pulling luggage of pre loved items of famous amos , hot and spicy bloggers who were there setting up stalls call Pop Market to let go some some of their personal items.

Me the less hot and less spicy blogger was lucky enough to be invited by The Butterfly Project who gave me chance to build up my own name and try my best to brag as details and informative reviews to share with public. I treat this as my job and passion. Thank you!!! So I will try my best!!!!!

Super long intro..huh?

Himalaya is not a strange brand to me.
15 years back!!!!  Himalaya with some pharmacy used to organise those health workshop to promote their brand awareness on supplement products. Either it is a free one or with a small registration fees of RM10. Himalaya were so generous to give out shampoo and full sized supplement. I love their garlic supplement and some supplement for blood circulation.
I even introduced this brand to my parent and siblings.
Mum still using Himalaya Protein Shampoo and my last sis still using Himalaya hair cream.
I still faithfully using Himalaya body lotion.

I love Himalaya product because they use 100% herbal ingredients.

This event, specifically to introduce the NEEM range.
What is NEEM?
If in Malay, NEEM is 'DAUN SEMAMBU'.
Normally , we use NEEM leaf to reduce itchiness when we have 'Chicken Pox'.

In India, NEEM tree like a coconut tree here in Malaysia, is fully utilised in every part of the tree.
NEEM leaves, flowers,seeds,fruits,roots and even its bark have been used for treatment of inflammation,infection,fever,skin diseases and even dental disorders. ish ish useful to that extend. It doesn't stop there if garlic can be used to scare off dracula....Neem Leaves can scare away the evil spirit!!!! Cast the Casper away!!!

My split personality disorder syndrome suddenly come out.
Next life...I want to be born as NEEM TREE!!!! WTH!!!

I found fuwa fuwa the bakery. Ah! I am at the right place.
I saw few Himalayan arranging something for the event and the banner right in front of the bakery and the balloon deco too...double tripple confirmed..I am at the right place.

Dare not step in being the first blogger to enter into the event venue.
I opt to check out The School awesome toilet retard of me!

Ah! WTH!!! just walk in with hesitate phase and be the second blogger reached the event place.
I was greeted warmly by Ms Shireen.

While waiting for other Caterpillars to arrive. Me mingle with nice and lovely PR lady, from Sugar and Spice Communication, Ms Shireen and Ms Siew Woon, the Assistant Product Manager for Himalaya. Best to be the earliest is to have opportunity to snap more nice photos.

Siew Woon keep telling me that she met me before and my face are too familiar. huhuhuhuh..that because I have common 'red bean pau' face!

There is another blogger who says my 'red bean pau' face look familiar too. WTH!!! This is how the famous people feel when they are being recognize in public???
Owwhhhhh!!!! me the 'red bean pau face' feel so famous!!!! WTH!

" You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up to walk on stormy seas;

Cosmoderm Luminous A Retinol Review

In general, most people are advised to start using retinol in their mid-20s. Why do we need retinol for our skin? Well, this is because collagen and elastin production starts to slow down.
