Tia Amelia

'Rub a dub dub,
Thanks for the grub'
- Shen

Phew, I'm full. Mom's Vietnamese styled prawns are delishious! And she's not even Vietnamese :P Hope everyone had a good Reunion dinner.

Before the Hong Kong post, I decided to upload some pictures I've been meaning to post up. One of them being about a Made in Malaysia 'almost miracle cream' everyone's raving about. Everyone meaning the cafeteria ladies at work. After searching high and low, I finally found a seller online and happily bought it.



It took the lady ONE week to post it to me. I have absolutely no idea why I even bother to pay for express post when registered post would have been faster. Her excuse, I didn't state which product I wanted despite that it was stated clearly in my order mail.



Nevermind. So anyway, the cream promises fairer skin without peeling, lightening pigmentation, healing pimples and the sorts. Sounds too good to be true for a mere RM24.50(5ml)? You bet it is. For me anyway.

I tested this out for a good 2 weeks before deciding to call it quits. It smells a little funky in the sense that it smells like some cream you get from the hospital. Not necessarily in a good way. Smells.. plasticky?

Plasticky or not, after 2 week, this is the end result;

Bewarned!



I don't have fantastic looking skin, never did. When I was 12 years old, you probably can't find a spot in my face that doesn't have a pimple. LMAO! That's one reason, a pimple or two doesn't bother me.

Being 26 years old, my pimples have come under control and it's not a problem now but after using Tia Amelia, tiny pimples grew by the busload. It was like a rave party! It doesn't have a head for me to squeeze anything out and it was a little painful.

Despite that I was hoping my skin would adjust to it and continued on, it doesn't seem to be doing anything for me - I quited. My pigmentation never lightened anyway.

Before all the haters out there do the happy dance, know that my skin is back to normal. I know what works for me skin and to get it back under control, I use back what I was previously using.

Oh, the old Daiso Charcoal mask I bought a year or so ago broke, if you're wondering how...



Never knew it could do that, not that I mind since the mask did no shitz. It was just a black coloured mask that couldn't dry and pulling it off could make you pee in your pants type.

After effect was having a red face from all the peeling. Nothing else.

It is just RM5 though. Hee....

...

......

God dammit, I wouldn't have even paid RM2 for it!!
