Dr. Ci:Labo

I'm currently using Dr. Ci:Labo skincare as it is the only one that doesn't use preservatives. Due to the presence of cancer in my family, I've decided to avoid preservatives such as parabens in my cosmetics and skincare.

I use it's Aqua Collagen Super Moisture Gel and Everbright Sunscreen (SPF 30). I love the Super Moisture Gel because it moisturises, nourishes, brightens and acts as a base for make-up or you can just use it on its own. It's non-greasy so I don't have to worry about oily skin anymore. My skin just feels really clean and soft. The only downside is it's price, at RM124 for a small jar, it's quite pricy for me. The sunscreen also costs RM124 for a small tube, but it does last for a couple of months. However it leaves a whitish tinge on your face, I think it's due to the titanium dioxide. All in all a good skincare line.

I'm still looking for a cheaper skincare line that doesn't contain parabens though. Working freelance means I don't make that much and with prices of everything going up, I definitely need to cut down here and there.

Out of the frying pan, into the fire

Malaysia seems doomed. We manage to get rid of an ineffective 'flip-flop' Prime Minister, and what do we end up with? A more corrupt regime the way I see it. With Najib at the helm, and Mat Taib, Ali Rustam or Muhyiddin as deputy, the people of Malaysia are going to suffer. They are going to further rape and destroy the country, suck the coffers dry and enrich their families and cronies.

It's disgusting to see these politicians jostling for the post of Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister as if it's their god given right. Especially when we don't even want them. Najib, too tainted. Ali Rustam, corrupt to the core. Mat Taib, urghh, don't even want to go there. Muhyiddin, just the same. It's just too embarassing to have any one of them as a community leader, what more a leader of our country. The people should be given a choice as to whom they want as Prime Minister and Deputy. The decision SHOULD NOT be left to just one racist party.

It is so sad to see that we have such a dearth of good, decent politicians. The decent ones are stepped on, threatened or just thrown into ISA for no good reason.

God help Malaysia and it's people.
