My Shaklee Before and After Pictures

Hi y’all !
Assalamu’alaikum. :)

Hope everyone is doing a-ok. :)
I have deliberated for quite some time to share these pictures with all of you because the before pictures are a bit embarrassing.
But I thought that since there has been improvement and it’s obviously a positive thing, I definitely should share them !

First and foremost, I would like to state that I have never had flawless skin and even now, it is not completely flawless.
A little history – I started breaking out in high school all the way through university. I have used benzoyl peroxide gel, adapalene gel and topical antibiotics for my acne.
In 2008, the doctor I saw in HKL when I went for my pre-employment medical check-up prescribed a 4-months course of oral antibiotics for me.
I did not even complain about my complexion, so that’s how bad my acne was ! Sob sob.

I know how it feels to not want to go out and the let whole world see how ugly my skin was. I had very low self-esteem and I was always self conscious and sort of depressed because how my complexion looked like. :(

Alhamdulillah, the oral antibiotics did help to clear up my skin but I still had acne scars, both dark and pitted ones which are more prominent on the right side of my face.
That’s why I have gotten used to showing the left side of my face when I pose for photos. Haha.

Presenting, the transformation of the right side of my face !

As you can see, that was how my right cheek looked like back in 2006 – red, pimply and scarring was obvious.
In 2012, I had less pimples but my scars were still very much obvious. I just started consuming Shaklee products that year.
And the most recent photo in 2015 was taken a couple of days ago. Can you see the difference ?
Alhamdulillah ! :)

The 2006 photo was taken using my Canon digital camera, the 2012 one using my Samsung Galaxy S2 (and you can still see the scars so clearly !) and the 2015 photo was taken with my Note 3.

Here’s another photo:
shaklee before and after

How I looked in 2008 compared to how I look now. Can you see spots, scars and red inflamed skin in the 2008 photo – even on my left cheek ?

Alhamdulillah, Shaklee products (only with Allah’s grace of course !) has helped improve my skin tremendously. I do occasionally get zits these days but they are definitely not as bad as before.

I have also managed to lose some weight and maintain it with the help of Shaklee products and some exercise.
I have been battling with weight issues for as long as I can remember. I think I was at my heaviest during my diploma days – my weight once reached 60 kgs. My weight dropped to about 46 -48 kgs after a bad breakup but I gained all of it back after that. Haha.

I was 52 kgs when I got married and 54 kgs before I got pregnant.

Of course, I ballooned during and after pregnancy ! I gained a whopping 16kgs which means I was 70 kgs before I delivered Khayla.
After giving birth, my weight plateaued at 57 -58kgs and I struggled to lose that excess 4-5 kgs.

I have managed to bring my weight down to about 52- 53 kgs now. Look how chubby I was 2 years ago !

Alhamdulillah, I am so grateful Allah has led me to Shaklee and I love how it has helped improve my life. :)

Of course, you can contact me if you need free personal advice and consultation (unless you’ve already bought you Shaklee supplements from someone else, then you should seek advice from that person, hehe).

Fun fact: Mr Sunshine got to know me back in late 2007 when I was all pimply and chubby, haha. I love you Sunshine ! :*

Ok bye !

The Importance of Vitamin C

I am sure most of us already know the importance of vitamin C, kan ?

Well, I am here to elaborate on it anyway. Hehe.

Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of our body. It is used to form an important protein used to make skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels, heal wounds and form scar tissue, repair and maintain cartilage, bones, and teeth.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is also one of many antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients that block some of the damage caused by free radicals.

Vitamin C is one of many antioxidants. Antioxidants are nutrients that block some of the damage caused by free radicals.

  • Free radicals are made when your body breaks down food or when you are exposed to tobacco smoke or radiation.
  • The buildup of free radicals over time is largely responsible for the aging process.
  • Free radicals may play a role in cancer, heart disease, and conditions like arthritis.

For many years, vitamin C has  been a popular remedy for the common cold.

Too little vitamin C can lead to signs and symptoms of deficiency, including:

  • Anemia
  • Bleeding gums
  • Decreased ability to fight infection
  • Decreased wound-healing rate
  • Dry and splitting hair
  • Easy bruising
  • Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums)
  • Nosebleeds
  • Possible weight gain because of slowed metabolism
  • Rough, dry, scaly skin
  • Swollen and painful joints
  • Weakened tooth enamel

A severe form of vitamin C deficiency is known as scurvy, which mainly affects older, malnourished adults.

However, our body is not able to make vitamin C on its own, and it does not store vitamin C. Therefore it is important to include plenty of vitamin C-containing foods in our daily diet. (Source)

My favourite vitamin C supplement is of course Shaklee’s Sustained Release Vita C !

Shaklee Vitamin C

It is a great source of all-natural vitamin C which is delivered hour after hour using a proprietary, all-natural delivery system that slowly releases vitamin C. :)

I will write on why Shaklee’s vitamin C is the best (in my opinion lah !) soon, ok ?
Until then, stay healthy everyone ! :)

The Story of the Identical Twins & Shaklee


Hello all.
Good morning ! :)

Today I wanted to share an amazing story of identical twins, Mary and her sister.

Below is a picture of them when they were 4.
Shaklee Twins

And now this is a picture of them at age 69.
Can you guess which one used Shaklee products ?

Shaklee Twins

Isn’t it obvious ? :)
Amazing that these twins can look years apart !

Mary and her sister are identical twins. Mary Anderson from Evansville, Indiana has been a regular user of the entire line of Shaklee products for over 20 years.
On the other hand, Mary’s sister rarely uses Shaklee products, preferring to use products made by other companies.

Even though they were born with the same genetic code, Mary has more energy, feels better, looks younger and is healthier than her non-Shaklee twin sister. Mary has “unbounded energy” at age 69. Mary is very active with her church and does volunteer work. She is President of her local Republican Women’s Organization.

Everyone thinks this mother of 4 and grandmother of 6 teenagers is younger than 69 !

This just goes to show that what we put in our bodies can really make a difference.

This also goes to show how important supplementing is, in the long term.
Some of you might have been taking Shaklee supplements for 2 months or even 2 years and you might think that you do not feel any difference. But trust me, they are helping you from the inside !

So, if you are interested in taking the best products on the market to supplement your diet, gimme a buzz. :)

How Vivix Compares to other Superfruit Products

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri everyone !
Maaf Zahir & Batin. I know I said that I am sad to see Ramadhan go in one of my previous posts, but that doesn’t mean I am not happy to celebrate Raya ! I’ll post more on my Raya in my next post, InshaAllah.

Since today is the last day for Shaklee’s July 2014 Vivix Promotion, I would like to share with ya’ll a diagram of comparison which was done between Vivix and other ‘superfruit products’.

Well, it is pretty obvious which one is the best ! Hehe.

If you’re wondering whether Vivix is a just another juice beverage, NO IT’S NOT !

It is an exclusive, concentrated liquid anti-aging dietary supplement that delivers the purest form of resveratrol and a highly potent polyphenol extract created from the only grape in nature with an extra chromosome. This unique blend of polyphenols includes ingredients that have been shown in laboratory studies to fight key mechanisms of cellular aging. Laboratory studies have shown that the polyphenols in Vivix have the potential to increase your lifespan and your health span (your quality of life as you age), plus they significantly reduce markers of inflammation.


One teaspoon of Vivix delivers the equivalent amount of resveratrol found in 100 glasses of red wine !

Vivix is definitely an amazing, AMAZING breakthrough !

Resveratrol in Vivix, an Anti-Aging Powerhouse

Resveratrol, is a powerful, antioxidant phenol that is found in grapes. The highest concentrations are found in red wine, but purple grape juice, the skin of young unripe red grapes, and grape seeds also have significant amounts. It’s also found in small amounts in peanuts. Resveratrol has been shown to have anti-aging effects and to boost athletic performance (in mice, rats and primates)

VIVIX = A unique botanical blend of Polyganum cuspidatum, Muscadine grape, European elderberry and Purple carrot which are rich in Polyphenol nutrients that help to keep you at optimal health.
The key ingredients are found to be 10X more powerful than Resveratrol alone and all you need is one teaspoon per day.

In 2006, investigators at Harvard Medical School and the National Institute of Aging found that mice treated with RESVERATROL lived longer, more active, healthier lives–despite being fed a high-fat, high-calorie diet.

In 2011, a clinical study published in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism showed that key ingredients in Vivix blocked a key marker of biological stress response after the consumption of a high-fat fast food breakfast totaling 930 calories


In June 2014, researchers found that RESVERATROL prevented arterial stiffening and inflammation in monkeys on a high fat, high sugar diet. It also reduced fatty build up and calcification of the arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis.

If that isn’t enough,results from a laboratory study at a leading university showed that key ingredients in Vivix inhibited the formation of Age proteins, which may result in cellular damage. See image below:

vivix age protein

Wait, there’s more !

A laboratory study at a leading university showed that key ingredients in Vivix significantly increased mitochondria— the cellular power plants that produce energy.


AND (yes I’m not done yet, hehe)..

Laboratory studies even showed that key Vivix ingredients help protect against DNA damage, supporting DNA replication for healthy cell function.


Just to refresh your memory, all the above is the FOUR KEY MECHANISMS at the cellular level which Vivix® ingredients positively impacts.

You wouldn’t want your cells to give up on you, wouldn’t you ? :)
