[Beauty] Cadeau Anti Hair Loss Shampoo Review

Are you suffering from hair loss like me? My hair has gone through numerous colours, bleaching, rebonding, and perming.. making it weaker now. I have tried many hairfall shampoos in the past but from experience, many drugstore brands don't really help with hair fall or stop working after a while.

I was then introduced to Cadeau and decided to try it after reading some positive reviews online.
Cadeau Anti Hair Loss range
This Cadeau Anti Hair Loss Shampoo is meant for treated and coloured hair - perfect!
Cadeau Anti Hair Loss Shampoo Review
Quality packaging with proper nozzle and sturdy bottles.
Cadeau Anti Hair Loss Shampoo bottle
For my hair length I need 3 pumps of the Cadeau Anti Hair Loss Shampoo. It lathers really well and effectively removes dirt and sebum from my scalp. I don't get buildup that clogs my scalp too. Even though it cleans well, my hair is strangely very soft?!

Does thin hair still need conditioner? Yes! It is important to find a conditioner that does not weigh your hair down - Cadeau Advanced Revitalizing Hair Conditioner is a good choice. Hair remains fluffy and soft especially when paired with the shampoo. It replaces vitamins and essential oils that our hair and scalp lost during the process of shampooing.
Cadeau Anti Hair Loss Shampoo, Conditioner & Serum
Twice a day, spray your scalp with the Cadeau Advanced Hair Growth Tonic. It is specially formulated to help nourish and strengthen hair follicles, reduce hair fall and promote growth of new hair.

The spray produces a mist that is easier to control than pouring liquid in your scalp. Massage it in and feel how the cooling sensation relaxes your mind.

For days when I feel my hair needs a little pick me up, I apply a little Cadeau Advanced Crystal Repair Hair Serum. It is formulated with silicone, ceramides and amino acids to make your hair smooth, frizz-free and shiny! Only a small amount is needed and it won't make your hair look oily nor heavy.

After using the range for a month, does it work to reduce hair fall? To be reallll honest, it's almost impossible to justify as a different amount of hair is collected everyday. Overall, I do feel like there is less hair fall and I see baby hair growing. It will take months to really make a difference as my hair continues to grow out. Meanwhile, I'm enjoying the benefits:
  • Super soooooft hair
  • Smells really good without the overpowering artificial-smelling perfume from my last shampoo
  • No more itchy sensitive scalp from drugstore shampoo
  • Less buildup on scalp (related to point above)

The Cadeau shampoo and range are also available in travel sizes!! I'm so sick of using hotel products that kill my hair. I will be bringing these along on my next trip!

[Food] Top Moodmojee Drinks to Try and Where to Get Them!

Anchor Food Professionals has recently launched a range of Moodmojee beverages that are not only yum yum but are pretty enough for the Gram too!
Let's start with my ultimate favourite - Tangy Brew!! Rich cold brew coffee mixed with the tangy freshness of orange which explodes in your mouth followed by its satisfying mixture of cream and cheese foam. Super super gooooddd!! It was the perfect balance.
Moodmojee Tangy Brew
For all the chocolate lovers, a drink to tingle the taste buds with the unlikely pairing of Yuzu and chocolate. The tangy Yuzu puree tempers the rich chocolate in the cooling Yuzu Chocolate Surprise. The Yuzu taste wasn't very strong but I enjoyed the crushed salt lemon cooling candy on the rim!
Moodmojee Yuzu Chocolate Surprise
The Pom & Grey Twist is one of the prettier beverages with its pretty pink hue. The flavoured cheese tea is a refreshing concoction of mood-boosting Early Grey tea mixed with pomegranate syrup, topped with a generous layer of chocolate cream.
Moodmojee Pom & Grey Twist
This one right here is a Malaysian favourite that’s both whimsy and decadent – Kayanika Fusion – layers of sweet and creamy with traditional kaya, gula melaka, pulut and red beans.. all topped with a crunchy toast! The presentation makes it Insta-worthy as well.
Moodmojee Kayanika Fusion
Another one for the coffee lovers! The White Chocoffee stands tall and proud like a shake with a crown of whipped cream. This sure-winner is a dreamy blend of white coffee mixed generously with delicious chocolate and peanut butter - creating a drink that can be quite filling.
Moodmojee White Chocoffee
If you're into sweet drinks with a zing, try the Lemon Mint Meringue - a rich lemon mint vanilla ice blended, topped with fresh meringue and slices of candied lemon and orange, it's a feast to both the eyes and mouth.
Moodmojee Lemon Mint Meringue
These beverages were conceptualised and created by Anchor Food Professionals chefs to showcase the delicious possibilities of dairy in beverages, bringing a sip of global trends to Malaysian consumers.
So rich and creamy.. Show me your milk moustache!
Tee-hee! These super-sized ones were just for the launch but wouldn't mind a large glass of the Tangy Brew!

What Makes a Good Website - Simple Guide for Beginners

Okay, you have your company and brand ready. Now you want to get your website up but what's all this gibberish your website guy is telling you? Is it even English? Let's get a basic understanding of websites.

Domain Name

This is basically the link/URL/name of your website that goes.. www.yourbrand.com
Ideally, it should be as short as possible, easy to say/remember and doesn't sound like another brand name.

Good Website Hosting

Hosting is the space you're renting to place your website or you could say it's like renting a store space in a shopping mall. Make sure your hosting is sufficient, fast and reliable. You wouldn't want users to open your website and be greeted with a big white page with the words 'Bandwidth Exceeded' on it! This would be equivalent to the shopping mall being closed.

There are tonnes of web hosts out there so take your time looking through and comparing them. You can see some of the web hosts that Wordpress recommends or take a look at this list where WHSR recommends the 8 best web hosting companies for Malaysia/Singapore websites.

Fast Loading Speed

With technology advancement, people start getting things they want faster, and they also start getting very impatient.. A popular store should rent a bigger shop space (hosting) to accommodate the number of customers and also products (website content). Web hosting has a significant impact on the page load speed but it is only one of the factors. Removing unnecessary elements and optimising images for web use before uploading them will greatly reduce the loading time.

Mobile-friendly Responsive Design

In this day and age, your website really should be mobile-friendly already as most visitors are using their phones to access your site. Websites that are not mobile-friendly are also penalised by Google and their ranking on the search engine giant becomes lower.
The design on a responsive website 'moves' depending on your screen size which are loosely categorised into: computer, tablet and mobile phone. The aim here is to make your website look good on ALL 3.

Provide Value in Your Content

Many brands make the mistake of only writing what they want to write. Below is part of an actual conversation I had with a client:
"I paid for this website so I should put all the information I can."
Yes, I understand where you're coming from but I call this brand narcissism. Stop talking about yourself. Instead, try telling your audience how your brand/product can improve their lives.
❌ We sell movie tickets and have been awarded with Best Innovation Award.
✅ Buy your tickets online in advance to ensure you get the seats you want!

Call to Action

What do you want a user to do at your website? What is your ultimate goal?
  1. Sign up for my course
  2. Go to my e-store
  3. Provide their contact number
Whatever your goal is, make it easy to access with the least number of clicks possible. This doesn't mean making a flashing pop up appear immediately when visitors open your page though - place it strategically!

Get a Copywriter & Designer

If you want to make your brand look professional, invest a little more to get a good copywriter and design. This potent combination can express your brand message faster and effectively.

Add a Blog Section

What is a blog and why do you need it? No, it is not a space for you to dump event photos and newspaper scans. Read up on the purpose of a blog and how you can use it.

8 Ways to SAVE Money During SGshop 11.11 Sale

The most anticipated shopping event of the year is here! Now now.. I've had my share of buying through Taobao agents so let me share some tips on how to maximise your savings!
The platform here is SGshop, which basically helps you make purchases from different sellers on Taobao, consolidates all your orders into one or two parcels then ships it to your house. You can pay with RM and the listing is also in English which is great for bananas like me =D Now this #20181111, #SGshop is having the #1111TreasureHunt with lots of promos you can take advantage of:

1) “SHIOK!” Membership + 100% Rebate

Date: 1–30 November 2018
When you're buying a large quantity of items or bigger items such as furniture or even shoes (they come in shoe boxes), they will be merged into an even bigger parcel. Bigger items can result in a surprisingly heftier International Shipping Fee. To keep shipping fee lower, I recommend subscribing to SHIOK! Membership:
  • 30% Discount on International Shipping Fee for parcel heavier than 3kg
  • No maximum cap, unlimited times
  • Priority order handled ahead of others
“SHIOK!” Membership costs RM18.80 (1 month) or RM188.00 (1 year) BUT you get 100% rebate (in the form of SGreward) for each friend you refer to sign up during this promo period.

2) Pre-order your 11.11 Discounted Items

Date: 1–10 November 2018
Things really go crazy during 11.11 and items sell out so FAST! Stay safe and pre-order the things you really want before 11.11. As an incentive, SGshop is offering 50% discount on service charge for “Buy-For-Me” and “SmartShop” pre-orders.

3) Buy 1 Get 1 Free Flash Sale

Date: 1 November 2018, 3-5 pm only
For just 2 hours, get 2 items for the price of 1! Limited to “Buy-for-me” orders below RM50 only and you must add "Flash sale" in the product page remark to notify them. Take note you will need to pay shipping fee for the free item as well.

4) Money Money Come

Date: 2–10 November 2018
Try to purchase during this period as you will get cashback in the form of SGrewards! Every RM 1 spent on purchase order, service charge or international shipping fee during this period = 1 SGreward Shard. 20 SGreward Shards can be converted to RM 1 SGreward later.

5) Lucky Red Packet

Date: 6–7 November 2018
For 2 days, go to the game page “Grab Your Lucky Red Packet!” and play the game to win prizes (RM10, RM5 and RM2 SGreward). It is free to play and you can play unlimited times.

6) Spin the Lucky Slot

Date: 8–10 November 2018
Spin the Lucky Slot game to win SGreward, Cash Voucher and Discount Code. Make sure to login everyday as you get 3 tries per day.

7) Massive Discounts & FREE Service Charge on 11.11

Date: 11 November 2018
Obviously, this is THE DAY with massive discounts! You will also get 100% Discount (free) on Service Charge. Applicable to "Buy-For-Me" and “SmartShop” only.

8) FREE Service Charge

Date: 12-15 November 2018
Even after 11.11 is over, you will still enjoy FREE Service Charge for Buy-For-Me & Smartshop in case you missed any items.
