7 Muslim Friendly Danmuji You Can Get Online on Shopee Malaysia!

Since my last post on Kimchi is a hit, it’s time to list another Korean side dish called Danmuji. Danmuji is a yellow pickled radish that you can always found in Kimbap. When you bite, you can taste that crispy, sweet and sour at one time. It’s a fermented vegetable where they put in vinegar and few spices to achieve that taste.

I like to match this with ramyeon too. But, usually, if you watch Korean Drama, you will see some of the characters eat the half-circle yellow radish with jjajangmyeon. I can understand why they compliment each other.

So, let’s start listing 7 Halal Korean snacks that are homemade and where you can get them online on Shopee Malaysia!

Read more of my K-Food post on this blog HERE.

1. Dalbitjib Korean Yellow Pickled Raddish

There are two types of Danmuji from Dalbitjib, which is the strips and sliced types. Both types got three options that you can choose from either 300g, 500g and 1000g.

Based on the reviews that I read, most of the reviews always mention the packaging problem. But don’t worry, they pack it diligently along with an ice pack which in the hope, you will still receive the package in good condition and can enjoy eating them!

Price: 300g at RM14.90 until 1000g at RM37.90
Postage fee: RM0.00 - RM4.60

2. MariMogo Dazzling Danmuji

MariMogo danmuji sold around 3.1k packs that consist of 150g, 450g and 1000g. It’s made from fresh vegetables and premium ingredients, which are produced daily.

Like an above store, their danmuji is vacuum packed, so some buyers experience leaking and bursting. Since it’s a fermented food and when it was moving around transition, this thing may happen. I hope that you won’t experience the problem and get frustrated.

Price: 150g at RM12 until 1000g at RM80
Postage fee: RM0.00 - RM4.60

3. Bansang Halal Danmuji

Bansang Halal Danmuji sold around 79 bottles of danmuji with 29 ratings. They only sell one type of danmuji at 400g, but it’s interesting because they also sell in sets consisting of their trial pack of danmuji, kimchi, Myulchi Bokkeum and chilli flakes.

So far, based on the review, their customers are satisfied with their fast shipping and the taste as well. I like how they sell it a bottle, and I can imagine they use quite a lot of bubble wrap to prevent it from breaking.

Price: 400g++ at RM15

4. Shin Korea Shin’s Selection Danmuji For Kimbab use

Shin Korea danmuji sell around 133 packs consisting of 200g, 500g and 1kg of danmuji. It’s 100% made in Korea, and they stated there is no Halal certified, so make sure to check with them regarding the ingredients. There are also two choices, either strips or sliced, which are mainly used for kimbap, but I can imagine myself eating it as a snack.

This store sells 100% authentic & original Korean groceries, and I love to see all the graphic they prepared to ease the purchase process for their customers. So far, 63 of them have given five stars review on this danmuji.

Price: 200g at RM7.50 until 1kg at RM30
Postage fee: RM0.00 - RM8.00

5. GotKimchi Halal Danmuji

GotKimchi danmuji sell around 3.1k packs that consist of only 500g of danmuji. They fermented it with turmeric, black peppercorn, bay leaves, water, vinegar, sugar and sea salt. But, afraid not, they mentioned that there would be no strong turmeric smell and taste.

This store sells their Muslim made product such as fresh kimchi, danmuji, tteokbokki and jajang sauce. The customers were mostly happy with the fast shipping and the packaging because they put the danmuji inside a bottle. So, double the protection. But, there is a complaint about the smell, though, but some said it tasted fine despite that.

Other than danmuji, this store also sells kimchi, pickle and kimchi paste. And so far, the customers are happy with their danmuji purchases making it 216 of them gave her five stars. Well, I might purchase this after my I finished my eating my danmuji.

Aigoo Kitchen sold around 42 packs that consisted of 170g danmuji. It’s 100% Halal, made by Muslims with their homemade brine-based in Kedah.

Other than danmuji, this store also sells kimchi, tteokbokki carbonara, jjajangmyeon, and so many more. I’ve tried these halal Korean snacks before, and they sent it in the package along with a tupperware, which I received broken. But, the danmuji arrived safely. The side dish leans towards sweet more, but it’s a good match for Korean black bean noodles.

Review: I Tried 3 Products from Alluskin for 1 month

I’ve always loved discovering new skincare brands in Malaysia. Nowadays, the quality is different, and it’s on par with the international level. I can guarantee you that by introducing you to Alluskin.

About Alluskin

Alluskin was founded in 2019 by a former medical doctor, Dr Nurul A’in binti Sa’ari. The brand first started with Alluskin Purifying Cleanser (also known as APC), a glycolic acid cleanser that works, setting a benchmark of how AHA cleanser should be in the market. So far, more than 50,000 units of cleansers have sold online, and it’s still counting!

They have given birth to three more products: Alluskin Hydrating Toner, Lightbulb Serum, and Barrier Cream. But, in this blog post, I’m going to review only the cleanser, toner and serum. Thank you, Najla, for sending this over in 2020! Now, let’s start~

Disclaimer: 
Whether it's gifted, sponsored or bought with my own money, I will only ever give you my honest review. 
As an independent lifestyle blogger, I will get a small percentage commission, 
if you purchase through referral or affiliate links on every post – at no additional cost to you.

Alluskin Purifying Cleanser

The APC contains 5% Glycolic Acid, which is good for hyperpigmentation and makes your pores look smaller. It also contains Witch Hazel and Allantoin, which combine to perfect acne-prone and problematic skin. This cleanser is free from alcohol, fragrance and essential oil.

Lili thoughts:

It’s the second time that I have experienced less foam cleanser. Last time it was with ORYN Skincare which makes me use to it already. It doesn’t have any prominent fragrance, which I’m okay with as long it brings results to my skin. Since the cleanser aims to combat acne, tiny bumps, dullness and rough skin texture, I can feel that my skin is smoother than before. I still haven’t seen that it help me to combat dullness yet, but it does make my skin feel plumpy after using it.

Alluskin Hydrating Toner

Alluskin Hydrating Toner (also known as AHT) is a toner without alcohol that aims to give an immediate sensation of freshness, deep hydration while balancing oil production. It will also soothe your irritated skin and minimise pore appearances. The toner contains Allantoin, Castor Oil, Witch Hazel and Rosa Damascena that can fight bacteria that cause acne, and it’s alcohol-free.

Lili thoughts:

This 30ml toner is not enough for one month. This bottle only lasts me around two weeks with me using twice a day, either by spray directly onto the face or on a cotton pad to wipe all the dirt. Again, it doesn’t have fragrance, but I don’t mind because it controls my sebum production, especially for me, on the nose and chin area.

Alluskin Lightbulb Serum

Alluskin Lightbulb Serum (also known as ALS) is a lightweight gel serum that contains Arbutin, Vitamin C, Glutathione and Rosemary. Tons of powerhouse ingredients inside this bottle will help lighten dark spots, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity, and calm irritated skin. This serum is free from alcohol, fragrance and essential oil.

Lili thoughts:

ALS absorb into your skin quickly and doesn’t feel sticky even though it contains Vitamin C. I love this because it helps clear out the acne and balance the skin’s natural oil production. I noticed my skin produced less sebaceous filament, which always collected on the typical nose and chin area. But, I still need to clean it weekly, so this serum, in a way, help me to control it.

I can guarantee you this is not just hype. This skincare brand surprisingly works well on my skin. But, if you are a person who loves fragrance, you might not use to this because it does not have scents. Again, as long the products work, I don’t mind about that tiny things.  My skin produced tons of sebum, and when I see the before and after photos, I would like to repurchase without a doubt. If you want to try them, you can get your hand on the all-in-one trial kit consisting of all of their products.

Why Hollaface 5% Niacinamide Serum is Better Than 10% Niacinamide?

Niacinamide is one of the skincare ingredients that people are hyping until now! This ingredient has been in the market for a while now. You can find topical products either in the form of a serum, cream, gel and even toner.

Aside from that, I want to tap on something that you might not know. Can you have a bad reaction to niacinamide when the concentration is more than 5%? Let’s find out here!

What is Niacinamide and its Benefits?

Niacinamide (aka nicotinamide or vitamin B3) and Niacin (aka nicotinic acid) are heterocyclic aromatic compounds that function in cosmetics primarily as hair and skin conditioning agents. It’s an excellent moisturiser that helps lock in moisture and prevents Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL).  There are few benefits that you have to know about this MVP ingredient, such as:

⦿ It helps to increase the production of ceramide for your skin barrier,
⦿ Niacinamide helps to minimise pore appreance,
⦿ Anti-acne and anti-inflammatory, which can reduce redness and skin irritation,
⦿ It treats hyperpigmentation, where research shows 5% niacinamide helps lighten dark spots by inhibiting melanin production and enhancing collagen production,
⦿ Protects from sun damage: by rebuilding healthy skin cells and protecting them from damaging UV rays,
⦿ Anti-ageing. By strengthening the skin barrier and boosting collagen production, the skin can repair and rebuild itself while minimising fine lines and wrinkles.

Can I have a bad reaction to niacinamide?

It turns out it’s possible that you can have a bad reaction to niacinamide. I know, I’m shocked too! But, how can our beloved ingredient give a poor response to our skin?

According to Dr Rachel Ho, Medical Director of La Clinic:

“Most likely an allergic reaction or hypersensitivity—which can occur if the concentration of niacinamide is too high”. And to be fair to Niacinamide, “a skincare product is more than the sum of all its ingredients—sometimes a bad reaction to a skincare product may be due to another ingredient in the product”.

Her advice is to choose niacinamide products containing a concentration of 4% to 5%, which is enough to get all the benefits above. If it exceeds that, it may cause a stinging and burning sensation, redness and your skin will become more sensitive. The higher the percentage, doesn’t mean it’s better. Anywho, use products that contained around 4% to 5%, kapish?

Hollaface Pore Clarifying Brightening Serum Aqa's Note

Product recommendation:

Since we are on the same page regarding the concentration, I would like to recommend one brand that I’ve tried before called Hollaface. Right after I tried their Refreshing Facial Cleanser, the Malaysian local brand developed other excellent skincare products, and one of them contained 5% niacinamide, called Hollaface Pore-Clarifying Brightening Serum.

The Pore-Clarifying Brightening Serum is a gentle yet effective niacinamide serum that delivers visible results on all skin types (#GentleFormulationForAll)! It’s also free from fragrance, oil, silicon and fungal acne safe.

I’ve tried it on my skin before, and the serum absorbed pretty quickly. Since it’s free from fragrance, you won’t smell anything at all. Well, as long it can regulate my sebum production on my nose and clarify my congested skin, I mind the no fragrance part.

Hollaface Pore Clarifying Brightening Serum Aqa's Note
The Hollaface Pore Clarifying Brightening Serum is very lightweight and absorbed quickly.

What People Are Saying About Hollaface 5% Niacinamide Serum

I’ve been raving about their cleanser the moment I used it, and I do not doubt their serum as well. But let’s get real here and make sure that I’m not just all talk. I’ve checked the Shopee store and read all the Hollaface review (product rating) areas from one to five stars, and I’ve compiled legit feedbacks about the Hollaface 5% Niacinamide Serum. If you have more questions about it, ask them away because I assure you the staffs are friendly!

Review: I Tried 3 Products from ORYN Skincare for 1 month

If you think of orange, you will think of ORYN.

ORYN is a skincare brand that emphasises orange or vitamin C. They’re the Vitamin C skincare expert! The best part of all, it’s a local brand, #SapotLokal.

All the ingredients are of the best quality, which experienced chemists formulated. Some of the elements and technology are imported from Switzerland and Korea. They also have approval from the Malaysia Ministry of Health, and it’s free from SLS/SLES, Mercury, Hydroquinone, Triclosan and other dangerous chemicals.

Vitamin C is very in right now because since we are working from home (WFH), using this ingredient-based product can help minimise damage from blue light. So, besides the brightening effect, reducing the appearance of acne, that function is something to look forward to.

ORYN Skincare Cleanser

ORYN HydraBright Cleanser

ORYN cleanser is formulated to help to clean, hydrate and brighten up your skin. Their low foam formulation is designed to maintain the skin moisture level. Some critical ingredients are multi-action vitamin c, hyaluronic acid, panthenol, niacinamide, pentavitin and sweet almond oil.

Lili thoughts:

When I squeeze 2 pumps of the cleanser, the smell of orange fills in my bathroom. It’s nice and refreshing. Although it’s awkward with less foam, I find the thick and gel type of cleanser makes my skin feel soft and moisturising. The aftereffect is good, but it takes time for me to get used to it because I was so used to foamy cleanser.

Lili thoughts:

I’m amazed by this product, to sums it up – it’s tiny but mighty. If you see before and after the photo below, you noticed tons of whitehead, sebaceous filament, and blackhead on my nose area, and it’s all almost gone!

With my regular cleaning on the area using the skin gritting method, I don’t have to worry about strawberry nose anymore. Please take note that only apply to trouble areas because I can assure you that one bottle will not be enough.

Lili thoughts:

The texture is very thick for me, and I would advise you to use it at night if you don’t like thick gel-cream during the day. I experienced skin pilling quite often with this moisturiser, and it’s frustrating. So, I try to cut with layering and wait for it to absorb before applying other products. It seems to work a bit.

Reverie Touch | Green Tea & Rosy Glow Rubber Mask

Welcome back to #SapotLokal corner, where I introduced you to Malaysian brands, and it’s time to bring the spa to your own home with Reverie Touch!

About Reverie Touch

Made in Malaysia and formulated in Korea, we get the best of both worlds packed with premium ingredients for the Reverie Touch rubber mask (also known as modelling mask). They ensure to give you a moisturising, refreshing and pleasant mask experiences which I will talk about that more for two types of rubber mask – Green Tea & Rosy Glow.

About Green Tea & Rosy Glow

If someone asks me which one that I prefer, both masks have different functions.

Green Tea is rich in anti-oxidants which can minimise signs of ageing. It can also reduce excess sebum, which great for open pores like mine, and it can fights acne and breakouts.

While the benefits of Rosy Glow Mask is to soothe skin irritation, give a brightening effect, act as gentle astringent (less oily appearance) and ease sunburns.

The main ingredients for both of the masks are

  • Hyaluronic Acid (lightweight & fast absorbing)
  • Allantoin (improves skin dullness)
  • Licorice Root Extract (fix uneven skin tone)
  • Purslane (promotes anti-ageing)
  • Algin (helps to smoothen & soften skin texture).

How to use:

Things you need to prepare are a sachet of Reverie mask, bowl, spatula, water or toner of your choice (optional).

First, open a sachet and put everything in a bowl (one pack is enough for the whole face). Second, pour in 20ml of water, filtered water would be the best option, and you can also put a few drops of your brightening/hydrating toner to help boost mask effects. Then mix it well!

Please apply the mask immediately since it will harden quickly. Please leave it to dry from 15 to 20 minute. Peel it off and clean the residue by washing or used toner. Then, don’t forget to continue with the rest of your skincare routine!

Lili thoughts:

I know about the rubber mask existence. Therefore, I always wondered how different is the process and how quickly I can see the results. It doesn’t disappoint.

I don’t see the mixing part as a hassle, as it takes some time to get the right consistency. For me, it’s pretty satisfying to do it. Since Reverie provides instruction, I’m sure if it is not the first try, the second one would be great.

The consistency needs to look like toothpaste but a bit runny, so it will be easy to put on the face before it hardens. I did the double masking to put the Green Tea on my T-zone while the rest with Rosy Glow. If you want to see my result, scroll until you reach the last photo.

Once it touches your face, you can feel a cooling sensation, and it’s calming. The calmness enhances when you put on the candle and relax on the bed. You are bringing the spa to your own home, which is a great couple activity too.

In another Sapot Lokal series where I compiled a local business owner that you can support in Malaysia! This time is about a staple Korean cuisine called Kimchi.

If I’m not mistaken, in every Korean household, Kimchi will always be there, and it’s fun to know that they have a specific fridge to store it too. It’s fun to get to know about other culture!

1. Penguin Taste Kimchi

There are 3 types of Kimchi that Penguin Taste sells: Napa Cabbage Kimchi, Cube Radish Kimchi and Vegan & Vegetarian Kimchi.

So far there is one thousand 5 stars review, and you can see the Kimchi arrived in good condition. About the taste, the customers said that the classic kimchi taste vinegary and it was a bit sweet for vegan & vegetarian kimchi. After reading 8 pages of review, I can’t found how to describe the cube radish kimchi on the 5 stars page.

2. Oppa Kimchi

Oppa Kimchi’s homemade cabbage kimchi is specially handmade by Korean OPPA with 50 years traditional recipe from his mom.

I’ve tried this before, and it’s sour which is good to make kimchi jigae or kimchi jeon (pancake). It got a balance to it, quiet vinegary too, but it’s how Kimchi will taste like in Korea. I will repurchase if I want to make those two dishes.

By the way, their Kimchi got no preservative and MSG.

Price: RM15 (300g), RM19 (500g) and RM28 (1kg)
