MOLPay CASH - Hassle-free Payment Without Online Banking

Was shopping on Hermo over the weekend and noticed they had some very awesome deals going on such as items going for 99 cents only. Now you can get RM 5 off your order too by using this code below (minimum RM 60 purchase).
RM 5 Hermo Discount Code
"HMOLPAYCASH05"

This banner on the homepage totally got my attention. With minimum purchase of RM 150, you can pick any of them for RM 0.99 only. That's right... 99 cents!! There were also a tonne of items on sale so I kinda went crazy browsing for an hour.

OMO Deals

There were a selection of OMO Deals with discounted prices like this Guerisson 9 Complex Cream going for RM 38 only omg so cheap! I still have my horse oil cream from another brand if not I'll buy this. I had my eyes on their essence though.

RM 0.99 Bestsellers

Can't believe I missed the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Mask!! URGHH~ Ended up paying full price for it. I got the CLIO Tinted Tattoo Kill Brow with free 2 tints though. Super worth it since I'm only paying RM 0.99 for 3 items?!?! Hermo, you must be crazy..
Teehee! So proud of my 99 cent purchase xD There were a lot of items I wanted to get but self control okay. I added on the April Skin Magic Snow Whitening Cream and a box of the new My Beauty Diary masks =D
Throwback to when I was in high school.. Shopping online was a real pain as I did not have online banking nor credit cards. The cash deposit machine also only accepted RM 10 notes minimum so I had to ask the seller to return my change in the parcel LOL oh memories.. Luckily now there is convenient and hassle-free MOLPay CASH so I can make easy and quick payment!

How to select MOLPay on Hermo?

Step 1: Select Manual Transfer
When your order has been created,
Step 2: Click the pink button below to Pay Online.
Step 3: Choose 7-Eleven MOLPay Cash in Payment Option. Take note of the Payable amount, Order ID & Verification Code. This will also be emailed to you. You will have 48 hours to make payment.
 Step 4: Head to your nearest 7-Eleven and give the 3 details from above to the cashier.
Step 5: Make payment in cash and collect your 2 receipts. And you're done!
For the purchase above my total was only RM 9.40 which would have been impossible to pay using a cash deposit machine since the minimum is RM 10.

Advantages of using MOLPay CASH


  • Can pay any amount, including cents
  • Not limited to RM 10, 50 100 denominations
  • No need to memorise bank account number
  • Payable at many 24 hour 7-Elevens

The Therapy First Serum RM 148.29 (130 ml)

Containing crystal particles, Thalassotherapy essential water and 3 essential oils, it assures optimum skincare results by restoring balance to skin. It enhances hydration and gives glowing, radiant skin. It's called the First Serum because it is to be applied first before all your other skincare! It works to enhance the other skincare you apply after it.

The first thing you will notice is oh my goodd! It smells amazing! So fresh and natural, I want a perfume like this! I definitely do not mind using this every day.

Right after cleansing, apply The Therapy First Serum as the first step of skincare.
The serum boosts the absorption & effectiveness of any treatments used after it.
Awesome! Now you get more from all your other skincare, may it be for oily, aging, dry or combination skin. It doesn't really matter as you can consider this a booster for any skin type.
Applying The Face Shop The Therapy First Serum
The Therapy First Serum can also be used in 3 other ways:

  • Mask - Soak cotton pad with serum and freeze before applying on face for a cooling and relaxing mask
  • Massage - After shower, pour serum on palm and gently press on the temple, cheek and behind the ear. Inhale deeply as the sandalwood oil carries relaxing properties.
  • Mist - Transfer into a spray bottle and apply onto face whenever your face needs a boost especially in air conditioned rooms or during a flight

For now, I will be pairing it with another The Face Shop product.

Enriched with minerals from the sea, this luxurious gel cream has anti-aging and hydrating properties.

How to Detect Scammers on Dating Services: Five-Step Methodology

There seems to be a bad perception about meeting people online. I don't really tell everyone but le Bf and I met online and we're together for over 5 years now.
However, the chances of meeting a scammer are, unfortunately, much higher than you imagine. A collaboration with a popular dating site in Russia created a five-step guide to detecting criminals on dating services. Be vigilant!

#1 Check her profile page

Scammers have rather recognisable personal pages. You will rarely find any meaningful information aside from location, age, and body measurements (which are often close to perfection). You see, decent girls that look for husbands and mates on dating sites fill out their pages properly to multiply their chances of finding the right man (moreover, their personalities are always felt in things they say on the profile page). Scammers’ profiles look empty and average.

#2 Inspect her photographs diligently

Most scammers use photos they find on random sites. They often depict models of just beautiful girls. Since these photos are downloaded, they have, in most cases, low resolution and bad quality. They also lack personality and look like… well, like what they really are – random images from random photoshoots. If you feel suspicious about a girl, you can use Google Images to search if this photo is used elsewhere. If you find her photos used in numerous dating profiles with different names, you know something's wrong.

#3 What about your conversations?

Scammers use the same communicative patterns. They are initiative, emotional, intrusive, and not selective. In fact, they often used pre-written messages they just send inserting your name in the context. Sad confessions about poor and terribly ill relatives in the second hour of you texting is a sure sign of a scammer.

#4 Are feelings escalating quickly?

Scammers text with many people simultaneously – they don’t have enough time to focus their attention on one person per time. Therefore, they do their best to intensify conversations and build emotional attachment as soon as possible. Logically, no person would suddenly say they love you after knowing you for 2 days.
Love at first sight?
Naww.. Let's be realistic here.

#5 Check informational mismatches

Every scammer has his or her legend, which they repeat every time they find a new victim. Not all of them are thoughtful enough (fortunately) to create a perfect plot. If you notice any mismatches or obvious lies (like different cities on the profile page and in messages), start being cautious.

[Beauty] White Formula Moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid Range Review

Hyaluronic Acid in skincare is not new but White Formula uses 3 types of patented hyaluronic acid in their Moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid range. They've been featured in TV shows and crowned with several awards too. I'm a sucker for moisturising products so I HAD to try these out.
Some points to note about this range:

  • no fragrances
  • no alcohol
  • no colorants
  • non-irritating, making it suitable for sensitive skin

Step 1: White Formula Super Moist Facial Foam with Hyaluronic Acid (RM 29.90/120 g)

When I saw the name I LOLed because how moisturising could a facial wash possibly be? A certain moisturising facial wash by another brand did not feel moisturising at all. I certainly needed to try this out.

To my surprise, it is super creamy and creates a thick foam which is super nice to wash your face with! My skin doesn't feel dried out at all despite me using it with a facial brush. I also love the scent~~

Step 2: White Formula Super Moist Light Toner with Hyaluronic Acid (RM 49.90/290 ml)

This toner can be used with or without a cotton pad. I prefer with a cotton pad as it removes any dirt that I missed. It refreshes and cools down my skin after a hot day. It also stimulates collagen regeneration and comes in another rich version for normal to dry skin. IMO this toner is more of an Asian lotion - it does feel slightly tacky and hydrating.

I placed the cotton on my hand while photographing and I swear that specific spot turned fairer! Couldn't capture it in photos though.

Step 3: White Formula Super Moist Lotion with Hyaluronic Acid (RM 29.90/120 g)

Contains marine collagen which exhibits high water-binding properties and can be easily absorbed by skin to facilitate hydration, replace lost moisture and enhance skin elasticity while stimulating collagen regeneration.
Even though it claims to be non-sticky, it does leave a slight tackiness and sheen which may give you bright glowing skin if applied under makeup. Do I recommend this for oily skin? No.

Step 4: White Formula Super Moist Gel with Hyaluronic Acid (RM 61.90/50 g)

Apart from the 3 patented Hyaluronic Acid, it also contains ceramide and Moist24 for long-lasting moisture up to 24 hours.
After the toner and lotion which gave me slightly sticky skin, this light gel feels great. Honestly I already felt very adequately hydrated after the lotion which is why I do not really understand why I still need to add on another layer of gel. I guess I'll use a tiny bit of each then. You can also apply a thick layer of the gel as a night mask.

Step 5: White Formula Super Moist Essence with Hyaluronic Acid (RM 62.90/40 ml)

After you're done with the gel, apply 1 pump of the essence for that extra boost of moisture.
It's moderately watery but still able to keep its shape. Absorbs pretty well and feels comfortable on skin.
Overall, I'm quite pleased with this brand and range. It manages to keep my combinations skin hydrated but also not super oily by midday.
You can purchase White Formula products from mycare.com.my.
