Carousell Scammer

I've been doing online shopping for years now, and I count myself to be quite lucky as I never encountered any scammers before. Until finaly the day came for me to meet one, lol πŸ˜‚

For the past year, I've met a lot of fellow perfume enthusiast on Carousell, as I love looking out for discontinued perfumes and perfumes with older formulations. Sometimes if I'm lucky, I even stumbled upon these treasures for a fraction of it's price.

During Chinese New Year, while scrolling down the Carousell app, I stumbled upon a seller who supposedly are trying to sell off all her perfume collection as she's going to move house soon, there's a few items that I was quite interested in but I decided to just get 1 for the moment. Seeing that the seller has a few good ratings, I didn't worry much and proceed to make the payment to her.

Fast forward a few days later, I try to trace the tracking number that she gave me, only to find that it can't be traced on Pos Laju system. I was sick during that time so I was a bit more worried about my headache and fever rather than the tracking number, lol.

A day or two later, I browse through my Carousell app only to find that the seller's account has been suspended, it seems someone has reported her.


I decided to do one thing that I should have done earlier, google image search her listing picture, lol. Btw, this is a good website if you're using your mobile phone to do reverse image search instead of a desktop computer.


Guess what, I found out most of her pictures were stolen from accounts on instagram and from perfume seller websites🀦

The left one is the scammer's listing on Carousell and the right one is the original post from other's instagram post.







That's only 4 of her listings and there's actually a whole lot more😦 Usually I'm a bit more wary and careful of sellers on Carousell but I suppose doing online shopping while having a fever is never a good idea, since my mind is a little less sharp than usual, lol.

I didn't lose much but I felt the urge to share this experience, just to keep others from falling victim to her again, and what better way than to share this on the net, rather than engaging in an expletive-laden exchange with her, which to me, is a waste of time, since I detest drama and everything that disrupt my inner peace, lol.

Below is her info that she sent me on Carousell. If you ever stumbled upon this name, do be careful and to always remember to do reverse search image on the item pictures πŸ”Ž


Carousell Account :

Name : Nur Sri Marlia Omar

Public Bank : 4790242625

There's a lot of online scammers so before making any payments online, it's good to check out if there is any report on the seller's bank account, which you can easily check from the website below :

Scammers do have the habit of using their wife, husband, parents, siblings bank accounts when they noticed there is a report on them, so there is a high chance you won't find their bank accounts listed on the above website. Whatever the case maybe, do be wary of scammers before there's a lot of them these days, even those you wouldn't have suspected.

Feminae Argan Oil - Face, Neck & Decolette Cream

Last december, I luckily won this jar of Feminae Argan Oil - Face, Neck & Decolette Cream from their facebook giveaway. Prior to this, I'd never try out any products from Feminae, and I'm not too familiar with their products, I do however know that they're made by an Italian company in the city of Carpi, Modena.


π…πžπ¦π’π§πšπž π€π«π πšπ§ 𝐎𝐒π₯ - π…πšπœπž, 𝐍𝐞𝐜𝐀 & πƒπžπœπ¨π₯𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞 π‚π«πžπšπ¦

Description :
Argan Oil, also known as Liquid Gold is naturally rich in essential fatty acids and natural vitamins and antioxidants. It works in synergie with this cream to create a rich and deeply absorbent emulsion. Thanks to the presence of Argan oil, face muscle tone improves, counteracting skin aging signs and making skin smoother and velvety.

Instruction :
Apply on your face,neck and decollete, then massage it until its complete absorbtion.


Feminae Argan Oil - Face, Neck & Decolette Cream came in a sturdy glass bottle, it also came with a mini spatula which is perfect for me because I never really like scooping out cream straight from the jar with my fingers,  because everytime you dip your fingers into your jar of creams, you're introducing bacteria into them, which over time changes the pH of the formula,  potentially making them less effective. 


The cream has a smooth, velvety texture which feels quite cooling on skin. 


It has a very pleasing citrusy, vanilla like scent which I love. It's a mild scent that doesn't feel too overwhelming at all.


The cream absorbs wonderfully into skin, leaving them feeling soft like silk, with a hint of the citrusy vanilla scent. It doesn't feel thick nor heavy on my combination skin, and it doesn't leave my skin greasy at all. It seems to work well in hydrating my skin without causing any break outs.


I used this mainly at night as I prefer using essence and serums on my face during the day. I do however enjoy applying this on my neck on both day and night as it seems to work in lessening out my neck wrinkles. I've been giving extra attentions to my neck lately as this area often shows signs of aging faster than your face, lol.


Overall I do love using this as part of my anti aging skincare routine, it's probably the best anti aging cream I'd tried so far and I'm super glad it seems to work well on my skin.

SilkyGirl Matte Junkie Lip Cream

Matte lipsticks are the best. Not only do they stay visibly long on the lips, they also keep you free from having to constantly re-apply lipstick throughout the day.


Matte Junkie Lip Cream in 01 Retro and 11 Terracotta are a few of my favourites from the brand SilkyGirl. They've been my go to lipsticks for a while now and I've purchased a few of these with the same colours everytime I visit Watsons or Guardians. When I love something, I stick to it for a long, long time, lol.


Liquid formula that dries to a matte finish, the texture is neither thick nor lightweight, and I do find it to be quite comfortable once it dries on the lips. Once it settles, the colour doesn't buldge, and it doesn't look patchy at all, though I do noticed the pigmentation is a little opaque, and you'll need a few swipes to get the perfect blend of colour.


01 Retro is a nude rosy colour, My Lips But Better kind of colour. I tend to avoid nude colours but this one seems to fit me right and doesn't make me look too washed out.


11 Terrracota is a brick, brown colour which reminds me a lot of 90s style lipstick. This is a very flattering colour especially on warm, tan skin.


I used to have dry lips but ever since I diligently apply lip balm every night before bed time, I don't suffer from cracked lips anymore. If you love wearing matte lipstick, it's crucial to keep your lips soft and smooth as most of the time, matte lip colours tends to accentuate dry lines, which results in less than smooth looking finish.

So far, my nightly routine has saved me from dry lips and I'm thankful for that because I love wearing these matte lip colours 😊
