The Body Yogurt Launch Event in Kuala Lumpur

Last month on April 25, The Body Shop introduced their new product launch called the Body Yogurt and it was such a lovely event to be present in. Truthfully, I felt as if I walked straight into a fruit paradise. The Body Shop revolutionised body moisturising by introducing the body butter products but how often do you hear about a body yogurt? They just stepped up their game level! And I was thrilled for this launch.

This is my second blogger event with The Body Shop and as always I am warmly greeted by their amazing bunch of dedicated staff and event organisers. Huge shout-out to Cherish for inviting me over!

The Body Shop as we all know by now is a brand that supports 100% vegan range of body care products and today’s launch is about the new release body yogurt. As I was briefed, this body yogurt is a lightweight body lotion that provides up to 48 hours hydration to our skin and it absorbs within 15 seconds! Yeah, you heard that right. Within 15 seconds alright.

It comes in 5 ‘flavor’ – Almond Milk, British Rose, Strawberry, Moringa and special edition Banana. Let’s talk about the texture of this product, it looks like a yogurt for sure but in a non-greasy, non-sticky, no-tackiness and light weight base formula. Get yours here.



Each yogurt is made with community trade organic (I will explain them as you read) therefore taking Almond Milk as an example, it is suitable for sensitive skin and this is no false claim. I have been using it for a month now for my super sensitive skin, it gives my skin a healthy glow with no irritation.

There was a ‘pamper‘ session to indulge in the pleasure of hand massage by trained therapist using their very own body yogurt and oh my! It does quickly absorbs onto our skin leaving us smell like a fruity flower. During the massage, I was briefed that the Body Yogurt are best used on damp skin and more appropriately right after we shower because the hyaluronic acid and glycerin will help attract and seal in the moisture to our skin. Now, that makes sense.

The Body Shop Newsletter:

Body Yogurts are all made with Community Trade organic almond milk sourced from Mañán in Alicante, Spain. The Body Shop have worked with Mañán since 2016. They provide stability for the cooperative of local, small-scale farmers who extract our almond milk, using low-intensity farming methods. They use broken nuts that aren’t sold for food and turn unwanted almond husks into compost to help minimise waste.

The Moringa, British Rose and Banana Body Yogurts are also enriched with their own Community Trade ingredients – which are exciting new additions to The Body Shop’s unique Community Trade programme.

The Body Shop Community Trade Moringa extract comes from Rwanda, Community Trade English Rose essence from Herefordshire, and Community Trade organic Banana puree is from Ecuador.

My personal fav! The Almond Milk Body Yogurt – Smeellsss too good!

There were too many fun game booth placed for each of us and it was a fun-filled evening, chatting away with The Body Shop staff and I was blown away with their product knowledge so next time you pop into their outlet make sure to take full advantage and ask away for advice! They are trained.

Once again, I truly enjoyed the event and thank you The Body Shop Malaysia for the wonderful gifts and goodies bags.LRM_EXPORT_20180425_233556

The key important message of the event is to emphasise on banning animal cruelty. The Body Shop has always believed in beauty without cruelty and has been campaigning for many years now to make a change. Together with Cruelty Free International, they are the first global cosmetics company to campaign against animal testing.

You can do your part in signing in their petition. Let’s take a stand to finally ban cosmetic testing on animals everywhere today!

The Roots of Strength Launch – A Body Shop Blogger Event

Last Thursday, I was invited for The Body Shop event in One Utama Shopping Centre. This event is in conjunction with the Chinese New Year & Valentine’s Day celebration, the show stopper of the day is the launching of The Roots of Strength & The Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss sweet fragrances.

The very first impression when I entered The Body Shop outlet was festivity! Every corner was decorated with Chinese New Year decorations and the theme blended well with Valentine’s Day hence it was a mix of bright pink and red color. All of The Body Shop staff and event coordinators were beautifully dressed in cheongsam (a traditional Chinese dress). The Chinese people has a very interesting culture in Malaysia and it is believed that the color red symbolizes good fortune and joy.

With Valentine around the corner, it was a great way to showcase their new Japanese Cherry Blossom Strawberry Kiss sweet fragrance! Don’t we all know that pink is the color of universal love of oneself and of others.

I was greeted with ginseng and ginger tea, butter biscuits, macaroons, strawberry fruit and yummy cakes. It was like a perfect evening hi-tea with too much of goody sweetness. The table was beautifully arranged and what I adore the most is each of the staff had a warm smile that made me felt comfortable throughout the event.


In the beginning of the event, I was talked through by Cherryl about their new products, ‘The Roots of Strength‘ and the goodness it gives to our skin. It was fascinating to know that this product is enriched with 3 root extracts: Ginger from Madagascar, Ginseng from China and Ruscus from Europe and Community Trade Soy Oil from Brazil. Best part of all this product is formulated without mineral oil, paraffin and silicone. They come in 3 combo of firming shaping essence lotion, serum and cream.

There was also a mini pamper therapy session for all guests to enjoy a quick hand massage using their very own hand creme. It was also quite insightful for me because I learnt how to massage my hands the correct way. The time just goes far too quickly and before I left, I was gifted a bag filled with their products and this came in as a surprise. Couldn’t be more happier to receive this bag of surprise and be part of this celebration!


Thank you The Body Shop for having me with you!

Finding Paradise – Phi Phi Island

This is the second series of my Thailand blog post! 

IMG_3208.JPGI went to Phuket recently and ever since I got back, I have been flooded with questions about my trip. Which are the best beaches in Phuket? How is the food in Phuket? Is it a good idea to plan a holiday in Phuket?

So I thought why not spread some good travel karma and share my Phuket travel while it’s still fresh in my mind. Here’s a recap of my trip including scenic attractions and restaurants with reviews, suggestions and most importantly, prices!!  I had a super time exploring Thailand, especially Phuket and it’s surrounding Island.

The cheapest and most reliable way to get from Phuket/Krabi to Phi Phi is by ferry. The journey takes about two hours from the place to Phi Phi Islands. There is specific schedule of timing of the ferries between Rassada Pier in Phuket and Tonsai Pier in Phi Phi, hence that varies. Therefore it is better to ask in the hotel you stay so they may help you with ferry schedule timing.

The main departure/arrival port in Phuket is the Rassada Pier, located in Phuket Town. The price is about 500 baht for a one-way ticket.

Tonsai Pier at Phi Phi Island

Tonsai Pier, situated in the center of Tonsai Bay, north of of Phi Phi Don. It’s the island’s main pier and the busiest, with ferries arriving from Phuket, Krabi and Lanta. Solidly built and so scenic with its surrounding hilly landscape. On arrival, there’s a small 20 baht entry fee to the island (known as the island tax), and you’ll be met by a bunch of merchants holding up banners for tours and hotels.


Tonsai Pier
The island was destroyed by Tsunami in 2004, the island has been rebuilt and developed to an even greater extent than before.

For my first Thailand trip, especially as a woman traveler, I think it was a great decision that I stayed in Bayview Resort – Krabi Province. It was safe, the people were friendly and it is a mini town by the island.

I stayed in Ko Phi Phi, or it’s rather known as Phi Phi Island. It is one of the most talked about places in Southeast Asia, with its natural beauty and reputation for good times putting it firmly on the tourist trail. The beauty of the island is unparalleled, even in a region of the world renowned for its stunning destinations. Limestone cliffs (as you can see in the picture I snapped!), turquoise waters, white sand beaches and miles of trackless forest make Phi Phi a perfect tropical island.

The Body Shop Skin Defence SPF 50 PA ++++

The sun in Phi Phi is very strong and so you’ll need to constantly apply sunscreen (at least SPF 50 PA++++) if you don’t want your skin to burn. I used my ever trusty friend, The Body Shop skin defence multi protection essence.

From the resort where I lived, the resort had many activities to offer some includes rock climbing, fishing, diving, snorkeling, island hopping and cliff jumping. As for me, I choose to do island hoping because I wanted to see the places that was once a brutal victim of the Tsunami back in 2004. I was overwhelmed by the work of God and the work of nature. How much the Island had reconstructed from that on fateful day.

The great journey
The moment you step out of your comfort zone, you’ll experience the unseen beauty of life.


My one weeks on Koh Phi Phi Island were incredibly relaxing and enjoyable but more importantly, I managed to get a lot of experience.

Thailand, I love your sights!  Phi Phi was definitely the right decision.
