Want to look pretty but do not wish to spend time applying makeup? BB cream is the right choice!

Safi Rania Gold BB Cream


BB cream stands for Blemish Balm or Blemish Base

BB cream is a 2 in 1 beauty secret that blends skincare and cosmetic together by using high nutritional ingredients with anti-bacterial and anti-oxidation properties

BB Cream ingredients vary in different types of BB Creams.  Most of the BB cream have many plant extract derivatives. Some  include differentiated ingredients such as diamond, gold, caviar and various patented ingredients which are high in purity.


BB cream is originated in Germany. Dermatologists and surgeons prescribed it to their patients who undergone laser skin treatment to shield and regenerate the skin while providing light coverage for post-laser scars, acne and other blemishes.

The Korean celebrities and cosmetics companies then discovered the BB cream. Due to its wonderful results BB cream has spread from Korea to Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Malaysia. BB cream is now widely used in Europe and the USA.


BB cream is a the beauty product for the natural looking skin.  The 2 in 1 BB cream beautifies while healing for a healthy and youthful skin.

BB cream replaces foundation, make-up base/primer, concealer, sunscreen, whitening, wrinkle repairing properties and even a glossy shimmer.

BB cream helps to cover imperfections without clogging the pores. At the same time it even out the skin tone while nourishes  the skin. It moisturizes, rejuvenates and regenerates underneath. 

BB cream also helps to lighten under eye circles, acne scars, and pigmentation.  It add radiance to the skin without heavy mask-like effects of a foundation.  Prolonged used of it will improve the overall skin texture.  


BB cream is so easy to apply just like moisturizing cream. It   produceS a natural and flawless look instantly.

Though BB cream is high in nourishing power do not apply it directly to face after cleansing. Do not skip the daily skincare routine. After facial wash, always apply the daily skincare products such as the toner, essence and moisturize before applying BB cream. Otherwise, the skin feel tighten and dry.

To properly apply BB cream here are the following steps :

1. Get an appropriate amount of BB cream onto the back of the hand. 

2. Apply them onto your face in 5 dots to the forehead, nose, two cheeks and chin. 

3. Do not spread the BB cream by dragging it like how you would when you apply foundation! 

-  Instead, pat it gently to spread and blend it into the  skin. 

-  Continue to blend it well until it is invisible. 

-  If patting motion is too tedious, use fingertips to gently blend it with outward stroke. 

-  When you reach the eye area, gently pat the BB cream at the core part and around your eyes area. This will prevent the fine lines and wrinkles as dragging motion may strain the sensitive skin around eye area.


1.  If you do not want to look white like a clown, do not apply too much amount of BB cream. Just apply a thin layer and wait a few seconds to let the skin absorb. 

2.  Then apply more after that if needed. 

3.  For a more lasting hold, apply foundation powder at the final stage. But normally the BB cream is more than enough. If you want to reduce the shiny effect of BB cream, then you may use the loose powder.

4.  To avoid pores clogged, BB cream MUST be removed with a proper facial wash before going to bed.

Jamalul Kiram III

Esmail Kiram II

Sekurang-kurangnya 9 individu dari pelbagai keturunan telah mengaku sebagai pewaris sebenar Kesultanan Sulu termasuk Jamalul Kiram III, Esmail Kiram II dan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram.

9 individu ini bukan setakat mahu dipanggil sebagai Sultan Sulu malah telah melalui upacara penabalan dan mempunyai pengikut masing-masing. Menariknya tiada seorang pun di antara mereka mempunyai tanah jajahan atau wilayah pemerintahan sendiri.

Antara 9 individu ini Jamalul Kiram III terlibat secara langsung mengarahkan  200 orang pengikutnya yang diketuai oleh adiknya sendiri Agbimuddin Kiram menceroboh Lahad Datu, Sabah.

Kumpulan pengganas Sulu yang didakwa sebagai tentera Kesultanan Sulu itu bertanggungjawab membunuh 8 orang anggota keselamatan Malaysia dalam dua pertempuran di Lahad Datu dan Kampung Srijaya, Simunul, Sampoerna. 18 orang daripada kumpulan pengganas Sulu ini turut terbunuh.

Pengganas Sulu ini mula menceroboh Sabah sejak 9 Februari 2013 lalu. Matlamat pencerobohan ini adalah untuk menuntut hak ke atas Sabah yang didakwa milik Kesultanan Sulu. Mereka turut mendesak Kerajaan Malaysia tidak menghantar pendatang  keturunan Sulu pulang ke negara asal.

Sebenarnya Jamalul Kiram III bukan waris Kesultanan Sulu yang sah disebabkan dirinya bukanlah berasal dari darah zuriat hakiki Sultan Sulu kerana keturunan keluarga Kiram tidak lagi diterima oleh rakyatnya setelah dianggap sebagai sebagai tali barut kepada Amerika Syarikat.

Sultan Jamalul Kiram II (1884-1936) - Sultan Sulu terakhir dari keturunan keluarga Kiram di Jolo - telah memberi restu kepada Amerika Syarikat untuk membunuh seramai 4,000 orang Sulu dari keluarga Datu dan Syarif Tausug di Bud Bagsak dan Bud Dahu tahun 1906.

Semenjak peristiwa pembunuhan itu rata-rata orang Tausuq  menentang Sultan mereka dan tidak lagi mengiktiraf mana-mana keturunan keluarga Kiram untuk memimpin mereka.

* Tausuq bermakna orang Sulu

Tau = orang
sug  = singkatan perkataan suluq (Sulu)

 Sultan of Sulu, Al-marhum Sultan Moh. Jamalul Kiram II

Unfortunately he has no offspring of his own. He passed on his authority to his youngest brother Al-marhum Sultan Mawallil Wasit Kiram (1936).

Al-marhum Sultan Mawallil Wasit Kiram was Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram's great grandfather and Al-marhum Sultan Moh. Jamalul Kiram II was his great grand uncle.

Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram is the grandson of the 33rd Sultan of Sulu, Al-marhum Sultan Moh. Esmail E. Kiram I (1950-1973)
Al-marhum Sultan Moh. Esmail E. Kiram I has granted authority to Philippine government under the administration of President Diosdado Macapagal on 12th of September 1962 and of President Ferdinand Marcos in 1969.

Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram's mother Dayang-Dayang Farida Tan-Kiram was the first wife of his father.
Half tausug and half Chinese, she was commonly known as the Princess of Sulu.

His father's second wife is Dayang-Dayang Merriam Tanglao-Kiram, commonly known as the Princess of the South.
Al-marhum Sultan Moh. Mahakuttah A. Kiram, 34th Sultan of Sulu had seven children:

1. Dayang-Dayang Zuharra T.Kiram
2. Dayang-Dayang Dinwasa T. Kiram Delos Santos
3. Raja Muda Muedzul Lail Tan Kiram
4. Datu Yldon Tan Kiram
5. Dayang-Dayang Nur Mahal T. Kiram
6. Dayang-Dayang Ayesha T. Kiram
7. Dayang-Dayang Tanya Rowena T. Kiram -Tahil
Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram is married with H.M. Dayang-Dayang Mellany S. Kiram. They have seven children.

1. Raja Muda Moh. Ehsn S. Kiram
2. Datu Nizamuddin S. Kiram
3. Dayang-Dayang Rahela S. Kiram
4. Datu Jihad S. Kiram
5. Datu Mujahid S. Kiram
6. Dayang-Dayang Redha S. Kiram
7. Datu Mahakuttah S. Kiram
Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram studied Islam in Lahore, Pakistan (1995-1996). He got a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from AE College, Zamboanga. He also served the local community as a government official. At present he is involved as a civil society leader in the Province of Sulu which opposes the US-RP Balikatan Exercises of the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA).
Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram was born in Jolo. Jolo was once the capital of a maritime empire that traded with the great  Empire of China and with other kingdoms in Southeast Asia. 

As Raja Muda of Sulu, the Sultanate is Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram birthright. There is a sacred bond between the Sultan and his people, the Rayaat, that is handed down from generation to generation between the royal family and trusted people who live in Sabah and in the Sulu Archipelago.

The Sulu Archipelago includes Palawan, Sabah, Zamboanga Peninsula, Basilan, Tawi-Tawi, the Sprately islands and the Balambagan group of islands.  Historically it was part of  Nusantara. According to oral history and traditions, Sulu has been independent and sovereign centuries before the birth of the Republic of Philippines. Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram's ancestors contracted treaties with powerful nations and defended Sulu rights to freedom in traditional way of life against invaders.

But from the start of the Philippine Republic which lumped Sulu with the rest of the islands under the name Philippine Archipelago, Sulu has experienced devastation, death and downfall.

The Macaski Judgment over the Sabah issue in 1939 was a blow to the Sulu Sultanate. Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram's grandfather, Sultan Moh. Esmail E. Kiram I was one of the recipients of that judgment. The Macaski settlement divided Sulu into divisions

Sabah became a private property and the heirs of the Sultan were divided among themselves. One group wanted Sabah for sale while another group wanted to take it back. 

When Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram's  grandfather, Sultan Moh. Esmail E. Kiram I, granted authority to the Philippine government through Pres. Diosdado Macapagal and Pres. Ferdinand Marcos, it was with the hope that the Philippine government would become a caretaker of the domain of the Sulu Sultanate to help the Muslims in this archipelago. This transfer of sovereign authority carried with these obligations and agreements.

As Sulu political power is declined, the unity of the Tausug people in the whole archipelago also has weakened. The economic life of the whole region was brought to the lowest level. Then came the Muslim rebellion and the civil war in 1974 that devastated the whole Sulu. Hundreds of thousands innocent people died.
In 1974 Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram's  father was installed as the Sultan of Sulu. His father's twelve year reign started the slow but steady recovery of Sulu people

However after his death (February 16, 1986) there were several claimants made by pretenders (royals and non-royals) to the title of Sultan.
