Review: Innisfree Mineral Moisture Foundation SPF34 PA++

This is not a sponsored post

Hey guys! I'm back with a review on one of Innisfree's product which is the Mineral Moisture Foundation.
I've been sleeping really late recently (I'm not exaggerating. I slept at 4-5am most of them time. Don't ask me what I did. I thought that during the holidays I would sleep early since my skin condition was already really bad due to staying up really late studying for the first semester's exam. But NOOOO... I wasted my entire semester break. I didn't get enough rest at all. Really regretted it :/)

To take opportunity of this situation, I decided to do a review on this foundation to show you guys a better result of the product. Just a warning before you continue read this post, my skin condition is really really bad. Sorry if I scared you guys. Haha! I did not edit any pimples out - I rarely edit pictures except for the colours.

Product Information:
Product Brand: Innisfree
Product Name: Mineral Moisture Foundation (SPF34 PA++)
Type: W2 (Warm colour tone, Natural Beige)
Made In: Korea
Size: 30 mL

Claims to provide:
1. Deep moisture
2. Perfect coverage
3. Perfect fit


It has a very watery texture and it gives a dewy skin finish.

Are you ready for my current face condition :O :O :O?!

Bare face - after my normal morning skincare routine. It's so scary isn't it :O

This is the amount that I used for my face which is about half a pump.

I usually blend the foundation with Innisfree Make up Air Magic Puff because it gives a better application and it reduces the flakiness around dry areas of your skin. 

Besides that, it is also easier to spread the product as it is watery and spread really well.

It gives a light coverage. The pimples are not that visible in real life compared to the pictures. This is because I had bad bedroom lighting and lamp with creates shadows. You can also build up the coverage by dabbing a second layer of foundation. (I only had one layer of foundation)

And to finish off, complete the rest of the make up and do your hair :)

What Do I Think?
  • It gives a dewy finish which is what I'm always looking for in BB Creams/ Foundations/ CC Creams. Don't you just love Korean celebrities dewy and soft skin!
  • Even though it gives a dewy skin effect, it is more hydrating and less oily compared to many other BB Creams/ Foundations. I realised that my skin is less oily at the end of the day after using this.
  • This foundation is quite long lasting - rarely smudge and transfer after applying. 
  • It also does not cake!
  • It contains quite a high SPF - SPF34 and PA ++. However, do not skip your sunscreen! It is very important to protect your skin under the sun!
  • This product comes with a pump which is really convenient and more hygienic. 
  • Innisfree products are well known due to their natural products as well as their eco-friendly packaging (In this Mineral Moisture Foundation, it contains Jeju green tea). It's really nice to know that the make up that you use don't contain a lot of chemicals as it could cause harm to your face permanently. 
  • It is very affordable.

  • It only gives a light coverage - it may not be enough for people with very severe acne. However, you can build up the coverage by apply two layers of foundation.
  • Do bear in mind though, if you apply too much, your face may appear white or pink. Apply little by little, do not go overboard :)
  • It does, to some extend, enhance some parts of your dry/ flaky skin, but as mentioned before, you can avoid this by using a sponge or brush. What you can also do is put on primer before hand or moisturize your face. I find that my base make up goes on really well after using sunscreen!
  • It has quite a strong smell, but it didn't bothered me too much.
Overall, I love this product and I would repurchase this product as it is quite affordable. I think it would be better when my acne are cleared (which means less coverage is needed). The most important this for me is that this foundation does not cake! I really hate it when it foundations or BB cream cake!

Alright that's it from me!

Hopefully my skin will heal faster!

Anyways, I also hope you guys find this post somewhat informative and has helped you!
Take care and I will be back with other posts :)

Pawpaw Cafe

I'm so sorry for such a long absence! Been really busy with exams and assignments and finally I get to rest today. Looking back at these pictures, I really miss going out for breakfast with these lovely people (even though I see them all the time). Hopefully we are able to do this again soon, when everyone is free! 

That week, more people joined us since they were free too!

What should I eat? Stress.

Choosing what to eat is always the stressful part. Everything just sounds so delish!

Really love the environment at Paw Paw Cafe. Its clean, simple and not too busy. They also had a big window that was open for people to sit next too.

My Coffee Latte and Sam's Chai Latte (as usual)

Cold Latte

Vanilla Milk Shake

I believe that they were searching for something for the girls to see. We are not that anti-social =P

Sam Sam!

"Enjoying" our companny... Haha!

Toast served with Jam

Ngaw, I love this photo of both of them! 

Braised Mushroom Brushchetta

How desperate Josh is to take a photo with me. Okay la. I take one with you. *kidding kidding*

We also ordered fries since some of us were still a little bit hungry.

Overall, really loved the environment and they also provided good customer service. The food weren't too bad and their sourdough was so so delish!

Elixir Coffee

Hey guys! I'm back with a food post! I'm sorry for the lack of updates! I have so many posts that is overdue but do give me some time! I will try my best to arrange my time properly since I've been very busy with a lot of things recently. Anyways, back to this post!

Recently, I'm really loving Fridays because don't have uni (or rather, I start uni/work late depending on my timetable). Since some of my friends also have a break from uni/start uni late on Fridays, we decided to hang out for breakfast or brunch every now and then. 

We decided to have brunch at Elixir Coffee since my brother mentioned that their coffee isn't too bad. 

Love the art work!

Chai Latte
Chai Latte isn't my cup of tea :/ I don't hate it but I also don't love it. It's probably because I don't really like cinnamon. 

I got myself a cup of latte :)

Second brother also got himself a cup of latte

Cold Drip Coffee

C.B.L.T (Chicken, Baconm Lecctuce & Tomato with Honey Mayo)

Eldest brother enjoying his C.B.L.T.

Haloumi Stack
This dish was not too bad! I really love the grilled zucchini, mushroom, pumpkin and Haloumi cheese! (If you know me, I don't really eat cheese. But I really love Haloumi cheese! The flavour isn't as strong as Cheddar cheese. Learning how to eat new things everyday!) I don't really like the tomato and aubergine but this is mainly due to me not enjoying eating them. Haha.

Eggs Benedict with Streaky Bacon
This dish was simple but delicious! One thing though, both me and Sam don't like to eat Rocket (a type of vegetable).

Open Chicken Sandwich
For me, the chicken was a little bit dry :/

Overall, I thought that it was a nice place to have breakfast/brunch. The environment was very clean and the the staff members were friendly. Furthermore, the coffee as well as the food are affordable! They were reasonable cheaper compared to other cafes.

Anyways, I'm going off now! Gotta get ready for uni. As mentioned before, I have a couple more posts that I am still updating! So do wait for it. 

Love ya!

Penang & KL Trip 2014

 I am finally blogging about my Penang and KL trip with a couple of my friends at the beginning of this year. I am really really sorry for the lack of update guys :(
Day 1
Everyone was so tired because we had to wake up early to catch our first flight to Kuala Lumpur. Despite that, all of us were very excited to travel together! 

Waiting for the bus in front of Penang airport. I must say, I was pretty satisfied with the bus service in Penang. It is so much better than what we all expected since the bus service in my hometown is really poor.

On the way to our hotel. Pretty excited! :)

After checking in Georgetown City Hotel, we went around to find for food cause we were hungry! 
Rojak with fruits

BBQ Pork with Rice

After lunch, we headed to Gurney Paragon Shopping for shopping.
Trying on clothes.

Ngawww :) 

Check out the view from Chocolate Passion!

Passion Molten Cake

Brownie Chocolate Pizza - Half

Smokie Hot Chocolate

This was the design on their napkin. Haha.

After that we continue shopping in another mall called Gurney Plaza. We didn't really bough anything except for a polo t-shirt from Body Glove. 


With Hannah

The durian puffs that we never got to taste because we totally forgotten about it. We left it in the fridge till the day we checked out. Haha!

That night we decided to have dinner somewhere close to our hotel since we were all tired and it was getting late. So, we decided to have dinner at one of the most well-known places in Penang, Gurney Drive. Gurney Drive is very famous for having a wide variety of food choices as there are a lot of hawker stores in the area.
We were really fortunate to be able to get a table for ourselves without waiting for a long time.

The dishes that we ordered that night.

Day 2
Woke up in the morning and got ready to cycle around Georgetown to see some famous street arts and eat some delicious delicacies.  

I forgot what they were called! Sorry :(

Renting bicycles!
Oh, and also, thank you Tommy for bringing us around Georgetown for the entire day! :D 

All three of us are wearing the same polo t-shirt that we bought the previous day! :B 

First stop!

If you look at this picture closely, you can see that there is actually a painting on the walls of the house. Unfortunately, the it started to fade.

Esther: "What on earth are you guys doing?"

Time for more street paintings! For your information, most of these street arts are painted by a Lithuanian-born artist, Ernest Zacharevic. I've only seen these pictures on Facebook so it was an exciting experience to finally see these paintings real life. 


There are a lot of places that rent bikes for around RM10 (for a normal bicycle) so it's pretty convenient. Most of them would also supply you with maps for you to travel around.

Happy Rae Rae! 

They're bullying me :(

This is one of my favourite picture taken with Rae! Love this photo! It's also my current desktop background!

Everyone taking a rest while taking photos.

This is one of the many welded irons that I took a photo off. I didn't get to take many pictures of these. 

Picture taken when Rae was cycling. 

Stopping for some street food and drinks! 

Egg tarts!

Yup, we cycled really safely... We even created a couple of  small accidents... Haha!

We then decided to head over to the Penang Road Famous TeoChew Chendul to cool ourselves down after long hours of cycling.

Don't you love my fabulous hair C: 

I don't understand the rave about this Chendul. Honestly speaking, I just thought that it tasted normal, just like any other Chendul. Well, that's just my opinion.

After Chendul we went to try a very famous Kueh Teow on Siam Road. We arrived slightly early as the hawker stall only opens at 3pm. But thank God that we were not only able to rest but also have tables to eat our food later on! When its close to 3pm, the cafe was already jam packed!

Cycling around Georgetown drained all of our energy. 

Esther's Durian White Coffee which tasted not bad.

Photo credit to my brother, Amos. I just love this photo so much so I decided to share this photo with you guys :) (No, Amos did not travel with us. He went a week earlier than us)

Image credit: Amos Wong
Look at the number of people waiting for the Kueh Teow!

Looks normal but the taste is just amazing! Definitely worth the wait.

Initially, we wanted to have a look at the beach. While we were on our way, it started pouring! :( So we had to stop somewhere to wait for the rain to stop. So, we decided to have a rest in the hotel nearby.
Pictures that were taken in the hotel can never ever ever be posted online. Haha! Right Rachel ;) ?

Haha, Tommy!

Next stop!
Line Clear! Yes.. food again! Hmmm...

Nasi Kandar
This was delicious! I would really recommend you to try Nasi Kandar if you do get the chance to go to Penang!

They always say that food taste better when you eat using your hand.

Sih Koh Soup with add on White Fungus

Chicken feet

Kueh Chap
Kimberley Street is very famous of their Kueh Chap! This was really delicious!

Esther and her pig head. Haha!

Lok Lok

My legs muscle were so sore that night! In addition, my knees started to hurt (happens occasionally) which makes me not able to even stand properly! I ate painkiller, applied vicks and also stick on patch. That was hillarious. It was the first time I've felt such pain. We were all worried that our muscles would be so sore that we had to cancel our trip to the theme park the next day. The good thing was that we didn't really gain weight because we were burning it off the entire day! Hehe :)

If you are planning to go to Penang to see these street arts, here is a link to a map that would guide your journey!
Hope this helps you guys! :) It shows the location of each arts. The street arts are located near each other and they are all located in Georgetown!

Day 3
But thank God! We were still able to go to the theme park!

Unfortunately, we didn't bring our cameras in. Therefore, I couldn't  show you what it was like inside. If you like challenges, this is a place to go! Since schools started, there were less people there which makes queuing up much quicker.

Everyone that went! :D

I still can't get over how funny think picture looks! Haha :')

Expensive Moochi! Haha! They were yummy, especially the mango ones.

Day 4
Everyone was tired so we slept in for a little bit.

Rachel and Hannah went out to buy some stuff and came brought us some dimsum for breakfast!
Aren't this buns cute!! Thank you Rae Rae and Hannah! :D

After checking out, we went to Queensbay Mall for a while to do some shopping before going to the airport.

Decorations outside the mall since Chinese New Year was just around the corner.

Ikan Panggang + Nasi Kunyit

After doing some shopping in Queensbay Mall, we rushed to the airport by bus. It was so packed but luckily we were able to squeeze through and make it on time.

Of course, Instagram... Haha!

Day 1

Breakfast at Ipoh Town

It was nice shopping in Times Square since there are many clothing stores. The only thing that I dislike about shopping in Times Square (or many other malls in KL) is that you are not allowed to try on clothes. I regretted buying some of the dressed, but the rest aren't too bad.

Shopping in Pavillion on the other hand, is different. This is a mall that sells branded products (more high class), hence, you are able to try on clothes.

Chinese New Year decorations!

Ngaw, aren't we cute :P

Mango Desserts!

That night we went for one of Malaysia's top buffet, Jogoya!
Look at all of the food! Yumm!

Rae Rae is satisfied. Haha!

Besides Rae, its seems like Vincent is delighted too! Haha!


Digging in!

Thank you Edison for giving us a ride around and also accompanying us to Jogoya! 

"Each of every piece of cake please"
Ps, these cake was shared among all of us!  

Before ending this post, I wanna thank my best friend, Rae Rae for planning this trip! 辛苦你了。。I really enjoyed this trip meeting new friends as well as getting to know others better! Thank you so much! :) Hope that we would have more opportunities to travel together! I'm sure we will ;)

That's it from me guys! Hope that you guys enjoyed this post!

Images are from both my camera and Rachel's.
