About The Blogger

My name is Tammy Lim and I am an award winning blogger from Top 10 Malaysia Magazine and Cleo Malaysia Magazine. I have been blogging since 2008 and I am also the founder of a local Malaysian beauty & lifestyle community called The Butterfly Project. People often tell me that I'm a wonder woman, but in reality - if it's something you love, you can do wonders.

When I'm not wondering, I'll be on my computer searching for the next fountain of youth or hunting down a fantastic deal. I'm also a shopaholic, wanderluster, spa enthusiast and proud hipster who loves planning special occasions and surprises for her loved ones.

    invited to the exclusive preview of the newest brands in town

    Last month Shiseido Malaysia invited me & my friends to a private preview of the latest brands set to launch in Malaysia. They are the long awaited Senka Skincare and Ma Cherie haircare products along with ZA Cosmetics latest cosmetic collection. The event was held at Shiseido's office (near Ikea). It was the first time they organize such an event, so we were thrilled to be there having tea with pink cupcakes and pink sparkling juice!

    I'm so happy to be here, thanks Shiseido!

    The preview session took nearly 3 hours and Shiseido's trainer gave us introduction to each brand and their product collection, including what's the best :D to try! We drank and eat while listening to her. There was hands on session as well trying the products from all three brands. Fun!!! I wish they have more workshops like these where we can try first hand the products.

    SENKA Skincare offers a range of basic essentials skincare products like cleansers made of oil, water or foam and the famous Hoshitsu Lotion (moisturizing lotion) at an affordable price.

    MA CHERIE formulated with champagne, honey and other moisturizing ingredients, provides a range of hair products including shampoo, conditioner, treatment, mist, fragrance and oil. Their packaging and concept makes you feel like a dolly princess.

    ZA Cosmetics a brand not new in Malaysia but what's new is the launch of their pore less skin and attractive eyes collection featuring the new Killer Volume waterproof mascara, Perfect Fit 2 way foundation and concealer.

    After the workshop we brought back some of the best selling products from each brand to review and so far I am loving the Senka Perfect Whip and Hoshitsu Lotion!

      1. it's no crime to wear slippers! u look great okie :D

        but reiko i hate her for being so tall, need to sit on her next time for pic session

    3. Replies
      1. the Senka cleansing line is really good, u must try Choi Yen

    4. is it possible to make the foam as dense as they did there at home? coz i have never been able to get that consistency :(

      1. it is possible but so far, I'm trying to recreate the foam ball using my palm and folding technique (which fails). Guess the bowl and the brush still works to create the density needed, with the right amount of water.
