Hada Labo AHA + BHA Face Wash: Does Your Face Need Acne Control or Oil Control?

Hada Labo AHA+BHA Face Wash
Oh wow. I’ve been sitting on this draft for hours and yet I have not type anything down lol 😛

So, Hada Labo brought out two new AHA + BHA face wash and I got it a few months back. I have been desperately trying to used up my every other face wash so that I can open one of the Hada Labo AHA + BHA Face Wash to try. To be honest I have not tried their AHA + BHA cleanser before so you can understand why I’m so intrigued, especially when I have been receiving DMs on the Instagram on the difference between these two.

The Hada Labo AHA + BHA Face Wash comes in two variants – AHA + BHA Acne Control Face Wash and AHA + BHA Oil Control Face Wash. First thing first, both of the variants are formulated with the same Triple Anti-Pollution Formula to purify and protect the skin from environmental pollution. This is done by reducing the particles ability to adhere to the skin and also to form a protective barrier on the skin to shield against pollution damages. Then these face wash are formulated with Double Action Exfoliating Formula, whereas AHA (Glycolic Acid) and BHA (Salicylic Acid) in the formulation helped to soften skin, remove dead skin cells and restore its natural radiance overall.

NYX Butter Gloss is My Secret to Revive Dry, Uncomfortable Lipstick

NYX Butter Gloss 1
I was going through my lipstick drawers and I kept looking at these NYX Butter Gloss, which I bought a few years ago for one sole purpose. Yeap. The one and only lip gloss that I used, like, love and still using 🙂 . I still remember a few years ago when NYX arrived Sephora. It was so exclusive and limited that every single day all the NYX counter would be swamped with girls. I literally have to snuck one arm in between waists to grab something. IT WAS INSANE. There was two product that was all hyped up back then. The NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, which I hate and this NYX Butter Gloss.

Butter Gloss is a lip gloss that is said to be super hydrating and not sticky. Did someone said not sticky? I’m in! But that’s not all what people say about Butter Gloss. The reason why I bought a lip gloss (rare case) was because I read about how this Butter Gloss works like a charm as lipstick topper, especially on dry lipstick. So I went on a hunt for Créme Brulee. That’s the shade that errrbody was raving for. I have to hunt for it because it was sold out everywhere. Whenever Sephora restock them, it was sold out again.

Breena Beauty Blending Pearl Changed My Perception on Using Beauty Sponge for Base Makeup

Breena Beauty Blending Pearl 1
I wasn’t supposed to have a post up today, but Breena Beauty’s last delivery is today and Breena Beauty Blending Pearl introduction price of RM30 is ending this 23rd June so I thought I better put this up before you girls kill me 😛

Breena Beauty, the brainchild of fellow beauty blogger friend Sabrina Tajudin need no introduction. Everybody know Breena Beauty and my friend over here 😀 . Her recent launch kinda got everyone of us excited as she launched a beauty sponge named Blending Pearl. Now, I have a friend at Kota Kinabalu Sabah who bought the Blending Pearl, tagged me in a post and one of her friend/follower on Instagram commented that this is a copy of beauty blender. I shot that comment down because this may be a beauty sponge, it is so much different than beauty blender. Yes the concept is the same but if you have used both you will know that they are both different in so many ways.

Want a Foundation That Gives a Radiant Complexion? Try the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Anti-Fatigue Concealer. But, there’s a catch

Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Anti-Fatigue Concealer
Now that everyone has posted up their review on the NEW Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation and Anti-Fatigue Concealer, it’s time for me to post mine. Yes, this delayed review is on purpose as I do not want to saturate the beauty blogging scene with what everyone is doing. I like to do things a little bit different than others 🙂

Now, the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is not a stranger to all of us. Everyone I know LOVE IT. I have the older version, which I had forgotten to do a comparison against the new one *face palm*. To be honest, I am not into the older Healthy Mix Foundation, which explains why you never heard me talk about it or review about it. But I could not put a finger to why I don’t like it, until I tried the NEW Healthy Mix Foundation. That’s when the imaginary light bulb in my head lights up!

I’ll Look Passed the Bulky Squarish Softlips Cube For I Like the Lip Balm Inside

Softlips Cube 1
Remember there was one point of time I had so many lip balm sent over that it was too overwhelming? Not anymore 😛

I always appreciate lip balm sent over my way because I rely heavily on lip balm on day to day basis. When I had an allergy on my lips last year, clear moisturizing lip balm was all I used. I keep a tube on my work table so I can reapply constantly to keep my dry lips moisturize and I always, ALWAYS apply lip balm as I do my makeup so that lipstick goes on smoother.

Let me be honest. When Softlips Cube landed on my desk, I was not too impressed. I do not like the squarish bulky packaging at first glance. Maybe it is just me because all my handbag are so small and sometimes I can’t even fit a lipstick in. To bring Softlips Cube out and about is out of the question no thanks to its packaging. Cute, yes. Convenient? Not for me. But on my desk, it is just perfect as it sits nicely without tumbling down. The cube design is said to resemble ice cubes so that you look snazzy when applying lip balm. Seriously? lol

The Long-Awaited Wish to Own A Rainbow Highlighter Came True with Essence Prismatic Rainbow Glow Highlighter

Essence Exit To Explore Collection 1
I am not a fan of Essence Cosmetics. I once bought a dried up gel eyeliner from them, confronted them and they refuse to do anything with it and even pushed the blame to me. And so I brought my money elsewhere, over to Catrice. As you know, I AM A HUGE FAN OF CATRICE. Yeah I know the principal brands are from the same company. But not in Malaysia. I prefer to spend my money on something I know good and worth the money and that is definitely not Essence. I have been quite good with not buying anything from Essence until today. I saw someone posted a photo of the Exit To Explore collection AND the Prismatic Rainbow Glow Highlighter yesterday and that is how I broke my no-Essence shopping ban.
