Famous cheesecake from The Tokyo Restaurant, Lot 10 review

6 May 2018

Hello kawans!! Have you heard of the rumoured 'Best Cheesecake in KL'? I keep seeing all the food pages recommending this and my friends have been posting about this super delicious cheesecake on their instagrams too! So for a very long while, I've been eager to try this famous 6th Avenue Cheesecake from The Tokyo Restaurant (located inside Isetan, Lot 10) and a few days back, I finally did it!! 

I was in the area to check out the Chanel pop-up Coco Game Center with the bestie and after that we decided to do some shopping at Pavilion! It's been awhile since the last time both of us actually had time to shop, so I guess that day was our #TreatYoSelf day? Didn't get anything from Chanel though, still recovering my bank account sobs.

The Tokyo Restaurant is located on the 4th floor of Lot 10 Shopping Center nestled inside Isetan. We don't visit Lot 10 that often(my first time stepping into Lot 10 summore!!) so it took us awhile to find the place. Upon finding it I immediately took a liking to the interior of this place. 

As we approached the restaurant entrance, the staff asked if we're here for dinner or just desserts. We got there around dinner time so if you plan to have dinner there as well, the staffs will take you to a table inside the restaurant. If you're only there for desserts you will be seated at this seating area in front of their restaurant instead. We were lucky enough to get one of the more comfy soft chairs so while we savoured our cake, we got to take a rest from all the walking!

The 6th Avenue Cheesecake~

After approximately 5-10minutes wait, our cheesecake is served! From first glance, it looked basic. However upon taste, I think I've ascended to heaven HAHA! Just kidding ahaha! The cheesecake was very rich and moist, it tasted very cheesy. If you're a fan of slightly strong cheeses, you'll absolutely love this slice of cheesecake. However if you're not into strong cheeses you might not enjoy this as much as others? Paired together with their cheesecake is a generous amount of whipped cream. 

To be honest, I enjoyed the whipped cream more than the cheesecake haha. The whipped cream has a slightly strong milky taste that I absolutely love! The sweetness for me was perfect but I know that to some people, their whipped cream might be a little too sweet for their liking. It all comes down to personal preference. It could just be me but their whipped cream tasted almost like the cream layer on top of Koi's Macchiato drinks!!

Overall I personally think this slice of Cheesecake is really worth trying. It costs RM20/slice but for the quality it offers along with the 'fancy-ish' ambiance you'll be dining at, it's 100% worth it! Been quite some time since I've last came across cakes that I actually enjoy, so I'm definitely revisiting this place once I lose some of those calories T_T 

Kiamsap tip!! If you plan to order any drinks, you might want to order anything other than regular iced green tea(RM10)! Most of their drinks like coffee/juices are priced around RM14-RM18 so you may want to order those instead! We did not see how much they charge for green tea prior to ordering, so don't make the same mistake as us unless you're really craving for regular iced green tea hahaha! If you die die want iced green tea but you're also feeling kiamsiap, after your cheesecake you can walk back to Pavilion for Ippudo. They serve green tea for RM3!

That's all for my review! 100% recommend trying this! If you've tried their savoury food do let me know if they're any good! I wouldn't mind making a second visit to have their cheesecake and maybe try some of their mains too hehe!

Btw, I noticed it's been awhile since I've last written something casual like this and now that I've cleared off my schedule slightly(kind of...), expect more quick and fun reads here! When I'm feeling like it I'll also continue on my Australia travelogue from last year huhu! Thanks so much for reading and follow my instagram @yumizo_ for more current updates! I know I haven't been updating my IG very consistently but I'll try my best to post more!! I do however update my insta-stories pretty frequent aahhaa!

See you soon and until next time!!

New menu at Morganfield's Malaysia - Best pork sausage I've had in Malaysia?

4 May 2018

Hey everyone! It is time for another food review to grace this blog. This time round I have a quick and porky review to share with ya'll because Morganfield's Malaysia just launched 40 new menu items and I got to try quite a few of it! Before I hop into the review, thank you Racheal for the invitation! Y'know afternoon she jio me go makan durian seafood then night time she jio me for ribs leh omg!! 感恩~

Back to Morganfield's! Whenever people talk about the best place in town for some tender and juicy pork ribs, Morganfield's will always be on the list. There are 27 Morganfield's restaurants worldwide and 16 in Malaysia, the one we visited for dinner was Morganfield's Pavilion KL. Easily accessible via MRT!

It's my first time dining at their Pavilion branch and I'm really liking the rustic vibe this place has to offer. 

Here's the Thursday dinner crowd! Although Morganfield's Pavilion has a pretty decent number of seating capacity available, if you want to guarantee yourself a table, just give them a ring to make a reservation :)

If anyone tells you pigs don't fly, please direct them to Morganfield's!

Other than their famous sticky bones, Morganfield's is also a place many would visit for a drink[s]. They're open until 1A.M. so if you're craving for a rack of ribs and some beer on the side, here's a place to add to your list.

[ The food ]
The mouthwatering moment is finally here!! Out of their 40 new menu items we got to try 1 salad, 3 appetizers, 5 mains and 1 'special dessert'! This dessert is very special as it usually falls under the appetizers category! Keep on reading to find out what it is *wink wink*

01. Porky Salad - RM28.90

A bowl of salad with a whole bed of roasted pork belly waiting for me to dig in? Now that's a bowl of greens I'll say yes to anytime! The pork belly meat was juicy and tender while the skin was nice and crispy. Underneath all that siew yuk are some crunchy pork lard, an assortment of greens, cucumber, avocado, cherry tomatoes, and some almond flakes and sesame seeds for some extra crunch and flavour. I can't have a salad without a good dressing so for their Porky Salad, it's meant to be tossed with a tasty spicy soy vinaigrette. On the side there are also some prawn crackers you could eat it with! 

I've always find roasted pork belly salads delicious hahaha! No matter where I go, if this is on the menu, it's something my family would order on the centre! I really like how they've paired this salad with this vinaigrette too, despite being a spicy soy vinaigrette I think the spiciness was still bearable for someone like me that isn't that good with spicy food haha!

02. Mussels Kilpatrick - RM24.99

What came next was this plate of mussels prepared in Kilpatrick style. While Oyster Kilpatrick was something I've heard of when I was in Melbourne but never got to try, Mussels Kilpatrick was something new to me. Surprisingly, I really loved it!! This dish features a plate of 6 mussels sauteed with smoked bacon & sweet sour tomato sauce topped with cherry tomatoes. If you love seafood and tomato based dishes, I'm sure you'll enjoy this yummy appetizer.

03. Sticky Wings  (Fiery Habanero, Golden Egg Crunch, and Honey Soy) - RM22.90

Morganfield's may be famous for their sticky bones but their sticky wings are also pretty good! Morganfield's Sticky Wings are deep fried chicken wings marinated & tossed in their homemade sauce. Currently there are 3 choices of homemade sauce to choose from - Fiery Habanero, Golden Egg Crunch and Honey Soy. 

Honey Soy has always been my go-to chicken wing favour. Morganfield's take on their Honey Soy Sticky Wings feature a savory combination of honey, soy, and vinegar topped with some almond flakes. No comment on this, I've always enjoyed honey soy wings and Morganfield's nailed it pretty well!

Their Fiery Habanero Sticky Wings feature a play of flavours using sweet peppercorn and honey. Although fiery is in the name I personally didn't find it too spicy either. Tasted great and I couldn't pick a favourite between this and honey soy!

Their Golden Egg Crunch Sticky Wings is basically salted egg flavoured fried chicken wings with fragrant curry leaves. I had more than enough salted egg yolk in the afternoon and since I'm not a big fan of salted egg in the first place, I made a pass on this.

04. Seafood Chowder - RM16.90

If you typically enjoy a creamy bowl of seafood chowder, you'll love this. Asides of assorted fresh seafood, you can also expect corn kernels, potatoes, seaweed, and carrots. Because there's seaweed in this seafood chowder, drinking this made me feel like this is seafood chowder has a  Japanese twist to it? Personally I don't mind this twist at all since it's a charm that sets it apart from all the other seafood chowders I've had in the past and I actually enjoyed this seafood chowder!

05. Citrus Mojito Baby Back - RM69.90

The mains are finally here! First up is none other than a delicious rack of Baby Back ribs. The one we had is their Citrus Mojito Baby Back served along with 2 sides of your choice but we chose Mac & Cheese + flat chips. These ribs are slow cooked in the oven, then finished on the grill. The apple scent in it was pretty faint but it paired with the ribs pretty well. For a finishing touch, chunks of freshly diced green apples, lime and mint leaves covered the top of this yummy goodness!

06. Southwest Chicken B.L.T - RM32.90

If you fancy some chicken on your visit, this is their Southwest Chicken B.L.T. burger. It has a boneless chicken thigh marinated with a special blend of seasoning topped with some pork bacon strips. I mean, who says no to bacon anyways? Love the crunch this burger has to offer but if you'd ask me, I'd prefer to have the marinate a little stronger in flavour. Served along with it are some thick cut fries and coleslaw.

07. Sizzling Rib-Eye - RM69.90

This may look a little messy but I guarantee you it's a yummy plate of steak. The choice of meat used are top choice non-frozen Australian rib eye. Have this grilled to your preferred 'doneness' and have it smothered in their homemade creamy mushroom gravy. This dish is served with tasty and sweet caramelized onions, red skin mashed potato, sliced eringil mushrooms and garden veggies.

08. Smokin' Duck Pasta - RM29.90

If you're looking for some carbs, Morganfield's also has a selection of pastas available. Here we have here is their Smokin' Duck Pasta. Topped with sliced smoked duck breast, this pasta is tossed with pork lard (wow), sugar peas, chopped onions, tomatoes & garlic. Found this very cute because a slice of garlic bread was served on the side haha!

09. Captain's Catch Mini Platter (for 2pax) - RM102.90

Saved my favourite main ever for the last!! This platter features a rack of half slab spare ribs (choose either Hickory BBQ/Garlicky BBQ/Smoked Peppercorn/Asian Charred/Rib Rub) and is served with beer battered White Perch Fish Fillets, Spicy Devil sausage, Herby Hog sausage, garden salad and french fries. 

By the way, I've been looking for a place that serves pork sausage as good as the one I had at a cafe in Singapore for a really long time and I'm so happy to finally discover this Spicy Devil sausage at Morganfield's. It's savoury with a tiny hint of sweetness in it, not very spicy and so far after so many pork sausages I've tried, I think this is the closest to the one I really miss from Singapore T.T Thank goodness they offer a pork sausage platter on their menu!

10. Roasted Pork Belly - RM22.90

So after 5 mains, I told you we had a "special dessert" that is from the appetizers category right? This happened when we were asked if we were full yet and Kellaw decided to order "Porky Salad without the salad" hahaha a.k.a a plate of Roasted Pork Belly for RM22.90!

We all agreed that if there was one thing our stomach had space for after all the food you saw above was more of some of that good roasted pork belly we had earlier. Lucky for us Morganfield's actually does serve roasted pork belly on it's own! Their roasted pork belly is served their homemade Garlic Aioli sauce along with some refreshing cucumber and cherry tomatoes.

[ Drinks ]

11. Southern Fruit Tea (Mango) - RM16.90

Can't eat so much and not drink anything right? Part of their 40 new menu items is their Southern Fruit Tea. This tall glass is filled to the top with with chilled tea infused with fresh fruits and natural fruits syrup. For a final touch, this drink is topped with a scoop of natural fruit sorbet. Choices available are green apple, mango, raspberry, passionfruit, kalamansi, and lychee.

12. Sizzling Mango Iced Tea - RM14.90

Although this isn't new, I've decided to include it in this post because how often do you find a chili in your drink?? This drink features mango puree, spicy mango syrup, spicy jelly in chilled tea. Don't worry so much about the spicy word in this drink. Not sure is it that my tolerance for spiciness has magically improved but this drink does have a fizzy sizzling feel but it really wasn't all that spicy. I actually liked this drink as I'd occasionally steal a few sips of this from my bf. Order this even if it's just for it's aesthetics, you won't regret it!

Morganfield's has quite a few promotions available, click here to see all promotions available. Two promotions that has caught my interest in particular is their "Birthday 1 year free spare ribs" and also their "Oinkingly top value set lunches"! Allow me to briefly explain it here, for full details do read it up via the link above ya.

Birthday 1 year free spare ribs
If you can't think of where to celebrate your birthday, you might want to consider Morganfield's. Gather all your friends and family, spend a minimum of RM500 on your birthday(3 days before & 3 days after also applicable) and you will be entitled to redeem 1 half slab pork ribs per month for 1 year! So if you're planning to make use of this promo, remember to make a reservation first and read the TnC on their website!

Oinkingly Top Value Set Lunch
This promotion is pretty direct, and pretty worth it for those interested to try Morganfield's for a cheaper price. Here's their set lunch menu :)

That is all for my review on some of Morganfield's Malaysia's new menu! Thanks for reading and I hope you guys are as hungry as I am writing this! Also, thank you Aunty Lilly and Uncle Hong for pinjam-ing me your LED light haha!

Althea's Bare Essentials 3-step skincare review on acne prone combination to dry skin

1 May 2018

Hi kawans! A couple weeks back I received a box of products from Althea but I've yet to share what is in it with you guys. I know it's a little late but the wait is finally over!! I've been testing these products for a few weeks and I'm now ready to share my thoughts on Althea's first ever skincare line - Bare Essentials. 

In case you've never heard of it, Althea Korea started out as an online e-commerce store selling authentic Korean beauty products including brands like Laneige, 3CE, Peri pera etc. Last year they surprised everyone with their first ever beauty product - the Petal Velvet Powder, and just last month they've released the Bare Essentials skincare line. After all, before you hop into makeup, skincare always comes first!

After being blown away by Althea's Petal Velvet Powder, I guess you can say I have pretty high expectations for their Bare Essentials skincare line. This line consists of 3 products namely Bare Essentials' Contour Cleanser, Primer Water, and Fixer Cream. In hopes of promoting minimalism, these products are formulated to match the benefits of the infamous 10-step Korean Skincare routine while targeting 3 essential skincare needs - cleanse, tone, and moisturize at the same time minimizing the whole skincare routine to just 3 simple steps.

Full disclosure here, I have combination-dry skin with acne concerns(especially on the side of my face/cheeks & chin area) so I'll be addressing my review based on these areas as well. If you share similar skin concerns, make sure to keep on reading until the end to find out whether or not if this range is suitable for you! As this is probably the first time I'm reviewing a full range of skincare products in one posting, let me explain my current skincare routine along with how I've 'tested' these products as well.

[Current Skincare Routine]
My skincare routine usually goes like this: cleanser, toner, facial sheet mask (less than 5 times a month/every day if my skin feels horrible LOL), serum(twice a week), moisturizer, then sleeping mask. I don't have a fixed skincare routine but these are generally my all time needs.

[How I 'tested' Althea's Bare Essentials line]

Whenever I try a range of new products, I would feel the need to test the products individually first. Same goes for Althea's Bare Essentials, I've tested the products individually first before switching my entire skincare routine to just these three products together.(in case any of these products don't work for me, I'd know which didn't) Meaning I would first switch my usual cleanser to the Bare Essentials' Contour Cleanser while maintaining the rest of my usual skincare products. Two-three days later repeat this for the Primer Water and Fixer Cream.

After testing how the products feel/work individually with my usual products, the final step was to cut everything out and embrace the minimalism with Bare Essentials. Now that we're clear with my skin condition/usual skincare routine, it's time to ACTUALLY get into the review.

[Review Starts Here!!! Cleanse > Tone > Moisturize!]

Step 1: Cleanse with Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser 150g/5.29 oz - RM23

The first step would be to wash your face with Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser. This is a foam cleanser containing key ingredients like Ice plant and Lemon Verbena Leaf. The Ice plant ingredient is meant to hydrate and calm the redness on your skin while the Lemon Verbena Leaf has a strong detox effect. It is said to help soften and smoothen skin, calm and reduce acne, also to ease puffiness, and swelling.

As the name 'Contour Cleanser' suggests, the cleanser is said to remove impurities while improving blood circulation for a V-Shape face!

Now let's talk a little about the packaging. If you're into 'minimalist aesthetics' basically the 'Muji style', this has to be your cup of tea. I personally find myself liking both simple packaging and fancy luxurious ones but since we're promoting minimalism, this packaging definitely fits the bill for basic and clean.

You will only need this much product or less for each wash. When it comes to foam/milk cleansers, a little goes a long way. As for the scent, I'm not sure how to describe how the fragrance smells like, it is a little strong for my liking but I don't hate it either. I guess you could say I feel pretty neutral towards the scent of this cleanser?

The Contour Cleanser also contains Micro Capsules. These Micro capsules would pop and dissolve when in contact with water making it a better and more environmental-friendly gentle exfoliator for our skin. 

Told you a little goes a long way

Trying to achieve that V-Shape face because every time my bestie sees me she'll tell me my face got rounder HAHAHA

Overall thoughts Althea's Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser:

This being a foam cleanser does feel a little drying for me on my 'dry skin days'. Since I have combination-dry skin, this will not be an everyday cleanser for me but most likely I would use this only once or twice a week since I like how the micro capsules exfoliates my face. On the positive side, this cleanser did not give me any breakouts. While it did not give me any breakouts I do not think it has improved my acne either. I would say though, in terms of foam cleansers, this is by far the least drying one I've ever used.

For the "contour" part of this, I've been using this cleanser for 2 weeks(?) consecutively and I don't see any difference in my face shape but I guess this might seem more effective/obvious if you have puffy face moments in the morning? My face is just round from all the food I've been consuming so I guess a V-shape face for me is gonna take a little bit more effort to achieve than just washing my face! As for the price, I'll say it's a fair price to pay considering the part where it's not as drying as most foam cleansers out in the market.

In conclusion, I would rate this contour cleanser a 7/10. Price is affordable and it is a least drying foam cleanser. Would not recommend to those with dry skin but for people with normal-oily skin, go for it!

Step 2: Tone with Bare Essentials Primer Water 200ml - RM43

The next step is to tone your face using their Primer Water. This is said to work as a toner and a primer at the same time. Their Primer Water is formulated using patented dewdrop technology which is suppose to revitalize your skin and provide immediate and effective moisture. It also claims to improve suppleness by gently filling the gaps between pores and the skin(primer effect here?). This product also contains an ingredient called Snow Lotus which is said to have brightening energy, fixing dark spots on the skin, along with anti-aging properties.

I like how they've kinda debossed the Althea logo onto the lid. Admit it, a debossed logo is always 10x classier than a printed on one.

The way the bottle is designed really allows you to control how much product you want to dispense. If you tilt the bottle without squeezing, the product would come out drop by drop, when you squeeze it then it'll just...flow out quicker? (Is that even the proper way to describe this haha)

The consistency of this product is really interesting. It's nothing like any toning water I've ever seen but at the same time it's not like any gel primer either?? I'd say the consistency is somewhere in between water and gel, kinda reminded me of the 'almost-gel like' hand sanitizers as well.

Overall thoughts on Althea's Bare Essentials Primer Water:

First things first, I absolutely LOVE the scent of this Primer Water. It smells very light and refreshing, kinda reminds me of green tea products too! As for how it feels on my skin, I'm really liking it as well! I could tell that this Primer Water really does hydrate and leave a softer touch to my skin. Despite having a thicker consistency, my skin was able to absorb the product pretty quickly.

By the way, in terms of application, possibly because of it's consistency, rather than using a cotton pad like my current toner, I prefer to just pour a small amount of this Primer Water on my palm then applying it straight onto my face. This way it'll last me longer and I get to spend less money on toners!

Moving on, let's talk about how well this 'Primer water' works as a primer. My preference for face primers are exactly what Benefit's Porefessional could achieve, a matte, smooth, and minimized pores canvas. Althea's Bare Essentials Primer Water acts more like a hydrating primer instead. This is because it leaves a very soft sheen on my face, doesn't seem to minimize the appearance of my pores, nor does it turn my face matte. It DOES however hydrate my skin and smoothen it slightly at the same time!

Initially when I heard that this is a toner + primer, I was worried if it would clog my pores and cause me to breakout but none of that happened. I got no new breakouts from using it and it has even made my skin feel nicer to touch!

Last but not least, because of how affordable this is and because it has dual functionality (toner + primer), I'd rate this a solid 8.5/10 great product! 100% on my repurchase list!!

Step 3: Moisturize with Bare Essentials Fixer Cream 50g/1.76oz - RM50

The final step to Althea's Bare Essentials 3-step minimalist skincare routine would be moisturize! This is their Fixer Cream, in other words it's also the 'moisturizer' in the Bare Essentials range. Sometimes I wonder why can't Korean products just use straightforward terms like moisturizer T.T? Anyways, this Fixer Cream claims to keep your skin hydrated for up to 24 hours! It contains ingredients like Trehalose, Baobab Tree, and Wild Green Tea. 

Trehalose is used to help retain moisture in the skin, Baobab Tree is rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C which promotes collagen formation. This helps to achieve a glowing skin and prevent wrinkles too! Another key ingredient, wild green tea too is rich in antioxidants, has anti-aging properties and is said to treat oily skin as well!

Okay so fun fact: I couldn't open the lid for this fixer cream no matter what. My mom and sister couldn't either so thankfully Yhang came over the next day and opened it for me ahaha! In this case I guess I would say I love the packaging design but it was just so hard to open T.T

After using this for 2 weeks straight, there's still this much product left.

This is all you need or even less. Don't take any more than this unless you plan to cover your neck as well.

It's a rich and heavy moisturizer so I recommend to use only a small amount. If you are used to lightweight gel moisturizers, you would either have to take some time to get used to this or you might just not like this product at all. It has a pleasant calming lavender scent to it which I really like. One thing I didn't like is that it leaves a slightly sticky and oily feeling on my skin. Although it's bearable, I'd like it better if it just dries to nothing. 

Overall thoughts on Bare Essentials Fixer Cream:

After using this for two weeks consecutively, I personally still prefer a lighter moisturizer. Because of it's consistency and formula I really advice to use only a TINY amount. I noticed that if I applied too much, my face would feel super oily. If I use only a tiny bit, the oily feeling would still be there but a much tolerable one. It's a heavy moisturizer so now I only apply a small amount of it at night before going to bed. Practice this and the next morning you would wake up with a healthy glow. 

In terms of acne, I did wake up with a fresh pimple if I applied too much of it. Which is also part of why I advice to use only a tiny amount. When applying the small and right amount, I won't get any new acne :) TRICK HERE IS....less is crucial! It's really hard to explain how the human skin works, a product could work and not work for you depending on the amount you apply haih. 

Lastly, I'm rating this a 5/10 because I didn't like how heavy it felt and how if I apply too much by accident, my face turns very oily and I'd wake up with a pimple.(don't worry, just 1 new pop up that's all) Price is really affordable and considering how small of an amount I have to use each time, it will take me forever to finish using this. Love the calming lavender scent. Overall it's a decent product but would personally only recommend this to those with very dry skin without acne concerns!

[Final thoughts on Althea's Bare Essentials Skincare line]

I think Bare Essentials has delivered a few of what it has promised. Not only is their packaging embracing the beauty of simplicity, it is pretty thoughtful for easily confused consumers too! Behind the products, it actually tells you which product to use first saving people like me all the googling trouble. Speaking about packaging, the frosted glass look actually elevates the classiness of these products compared to cheap glossy plastic looking ones. Really appreciate that! 

Next would be the price, the Bare Essentials series is really affordable and I do think you really get what you pay for, if not even more. I would recommend the cleanser only to people with normal/oily skin, for combination-dry skin like mine, I would advise against this. Even though you could alternate it with a gel cleanser, I personally would just avoid foam cleansers. If you really like the milky feeling, try a milk cleanser and alternate it with a gel cleanser instead. For the Primer water, 100% recommend to all skin types as a toner or hydrating primer!! As for the Bare Essentials Fixer Cream, I would only recommend this to people with dry skin. Even though I have combination-dry skin, I'll probably pass on this just because I prefer something lighter. Both cleanser and Primer Water are very acne prone skin friendly but the Fixer Cream on the other hand might give you a pimple or two if you apply too much of it. (at least that's from my personal experience la)

Last but not least, despite this being a 3-step skincare routine, I think in the future when I continue using these products while alternating the cleanser, I would still add a step 4 to it which is my Laneige water sleeping mask and occasional facial sheet masks haha! Also for my acne prone skin kakis do take note that while most of this range is suitable for us, you'd still have to include your usual acne care treatments like tea tree oil etc! I may have acne but I try my best to just drink more water and keep my stress management better now haha. Occasionally I'd use a tea tree mask though!

Thank you so much for reading until the end, if you've decide to skip until the end, just read my 'final thoughts' ba. By the way, Althea is currently having a promotion!! For those interested to try the entire Bare Essentials skincare series, if you purchase the entire set, you will be entitled to a 10% off discount and you will also be receiving a free beauty mirror!
