What do you do when Hada Labo released two different gel close at the same time? You do THE BATTLE OF THE HADA LABO GEL of course! 😀 . Rather than the usual one by one product talk-through and making your life harder referring to different pages on which gel to get, I thought why not combine two of the gel and show you what is the difference? This way you will get a clearer idea on which gel to get that is suitable for your skin need 😉
Having a smaller, V-shape face is every Asian girl’s dream. Not just slimmer face but a shaper feature, bigger eyes, and fairer complexion too. We just want what we don’t have 😉 . Typically, Asian women has more and larger face pocket compared to Caucasian. Don’t ask me why. I want to know why too LOL. I started my Clarins journey because I was under Hyperthyroidism medication and the meds gave me extreme water retention which resulted in puffiness. A client of mine told me she uses Clarins Shaping Facial Lift and the rest is history. I purchased and repurchased over 30 bottles to date. So when it comes to combating puffiness and to give Asian women a smaller face, Clarins is the expert.
Just when I scrapped out the last bit of my old Clarins Advanced Extra-Firming Neck Cream, tossed the empty tub to the dustbin, the NEW Clarins Extra-Firming Neck Anti-Wrinkle Rejuvenating Cream arrived my doorstep two months ago.
I wished I was told about the importance of taking care of the neck, just as the face. I came from a family where no one uses any skincare. I learnt about taking care of my face only after I started working. However at that time neck care is basically non-existance. Just like face care, I learnt it the hard way. It was a 9-5 desk job with monitor placement underneath the table (you know, the kind of table that the banks are into a few years ago?) that gave me two harsh lines on the neck that got me thinking about neck care.
If you search hard enough, you will know that there aren’t many neck cream available. There are a few from higher end brand and they are usually on the higher price side. Yes you can drag your usual skincare down to the neck, but for someone who has two distinctive deep lines, it is not enough nor does it do anything.
If you think that SK-II’s best anti-aging skincare invention is the STEMPOWER, you are partially right because SK-II has upgraded its Stempower technology to the latest innovation. The new SK-II R.N.A. POWER Radical New Age Essence and Cream are SK-II’s best essence and cream developed to date.
The concept behind R.N.A. POWER range is the signature ingredient which we all know SK-II for; Pitera™ together with R.N.A. (Radical New Age) Complex. Together, both the key ingredients targets the multi-controller of firmness in order to achieve lengthwise firmness and crosswise firmness. It is done so by rejuvenating skin cells and by promoting structural protein synthesis in every cell on all layers of the skin.
Fans of Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming range would be delighted to know that Hada Labo recently improvised the whole anti-aging range by adding in exclusive cutting-edge technology known as the Insta-3D Moisture-Lock Technology into the formula. It is a combination of 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid – 3D Hyaluronic Acid, Nano Hyaluronic Acid, Super Hyaluronic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid that linked together to form a 3D moisture net that works by deeply moisturizing the skin and wrapping the skin in order to lock-in moisture for continuous hydration.
I have here with me the Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion. Although I have no fine lines or any signs of aging at the moment, honestly at my age I would prefer this over Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion. People say, prevention is always better than cure 😀
The whole Retinol Lifting + Firming range consists of five products namely Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion, Retinol Lifting + Firming Milk, Retinol Lifting + Firming Essence, Retinol Lifting + Firming Cream and Retinol Lifting + Firming Mask. Hada Labo products are known for it’s iconic moisturizing factor so what’s so special about the new upgraded range eh? The 3D Hyaluronic Acid that I’ve mentioned above is Hada Labo’s latest discovery to lock-in moisture for even longer time. As a result, skin stays soft, supple and smooth for a longer period.
Just as excited as I am when I was invited to the media launch and preview of the NEW Clarins Shaping Facial Lift Total V Contouring Serum, I’m excited now that I’m finally able to share this new launch out after keeping it a secret for a month and a half 🙂 Just a little introduction on how I got into blogging and what makes me started using skin care. I was diagnosed with a serious condition of Hyperthyroidism and I was put on lots of medication to control all the hyper metabolism inside my body. What I didn’t know is that my body was not used to the intruder (the meds) and I put on weight as my body was adjusting itself back to normal. The medication also gave me puffy face and water retention was building up on my face as well. One day I saw how slim my client’s face was and I ask her if she went on a diet. She told me about Clarins and strongly recommend it to me but she did warn me about the price. So yes, Clarins Shaping Facial Lift was the reason why I started using skin care. It was my first Clarins purchase and I have repurchased nearly 20 bottles since then. Shaping Facial Lift was specially created for Asian women and Clarins was the first to offer the world the one and only refining serum back in 1999 after studies shown that the most leading concern for Asian women is the need to achieve a more refined and sharper feature. Thanks to Clarins for listening and taking the plunge to come out with a product that is now the No. 1 contouring serum in Asia.
