Yadah Pure Green 3-Step Moisture Care: Oily skin is well-hydrated, water & oil level is balanced, keeping sebum under control

There are some products that work so well on the first one or two application that makes me just wanna shout to the whole world about it but not this time. This time I make sure I really REALLY really test the whole range out properly and under different circumstances. You know, just want to make sure it wasn’t any false alarm 🙂

You guys, after years of searching…I finally found the perfect moisturizing skin care range that works for my oily skin condition. Like I said, I took my sweet time testing the NEW Yadah Pure Green 3-Step Moisture Care out just to confirm that this is it. Thus the delay in the review.

Yadah Pure Green
Simplicity is what I’m into right now. Yadah Pure Green 3-Step Moisture Care is a simple 3-step skin care regime that nourishes the skin with nutrients from Royal Jelly, one of nature’s most powerful nutrients to help regenerate skin cells and lock in moisture for up to 24 hours. I know most moisturizing or hydrating skin care claim the same if not similar but I can totally attest to the claim. Pure Green range is formulated with rich antioxidants to restore strength, suppleness and healthy radiance to dry skin. Remember I always said that when the skin is well-hydrated, the more resilient it is to environmental aggressors and skin problem.

Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion: Anti-aging toner with intense hydration? Interesting!

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 😀

Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion
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.

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Series: How I combat acne attack using less than five products

People say as you get older your skin gets drier. I am the other way round. Oily skin can get a little bit annoying at times but nonetheless I felt blessed because I don’t have fine lines or wrinkles on my face. It’s either that or this, right?

At my age now I shouldn’t still have oily skin or a skin that is prone to breakout. If you remember not long ago I have shared with you my current skincare routine using a full anti-aging skin care range that I find might be too rich for my oily super oily skin that it gave me a few new pimples every day? I was in luck because not long after my review was posted up, my long expected Thursday Plantation Tea Tree skin care series parcel arrived my doorstep. I badly needed these products to turn my skin around.

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree
Nope, you did not read the title wrongly. I did received five Thursday Plantation Tea Tree skin care products, which I find by just using three products from the brand helped to solve my acne problem. I’m not going to review all five products by sequence, i.e cleanser > toner > gel but instead I’m going to tell you my favourite product from Tea Tree series down to my least favourite. Since there’s going to be five products and you can already foresee how long this review is going to, I don’t think I’ll go too technical like the usual review. Just straight to the point like and dislike 🙂 . Ready? Let’s start.

Review: Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion, One Double Agent Product with Two Benefits

Hada Labo is known to me as a brand that utilise hyaluronic acid to achieve a bouncy, healthy and hydrated skin. I think they are the first brand who make applying lotion aka toner using palm application famous with their star product, Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion. Ever since then Hada Labo came out with various skin care that cater to different skin type.

Just recently Hada Labo released a brand new product that are targeted for combination and oily skin type. Right down my alley 🙂 . The Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion that is. I’m guessing this year it’s all about the lotion craze eh?

Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion 1
The bottle is simple yet clean looking and yet sturdy packaging although it’s made from plastic. Mind you it doesn’t feel plasticky at all. It is the same bottle design with Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion, which I like a lot. It comes in a flip-cap instead of a screw-cap. The convenient of it gives me a slight push to be more diligent in using it. Afterall, it’s hassle-free. No reason to be lazy 😛

All-NEW Asia Exclusive Estée Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion – First Impression, User Experience and Final Thoughts

I bet you have already know, read or even tried the all-new Estée Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion by now 🙂 . It is not a secret that Estée Lauder will be launching a brand new revolutionary product following a few series of teaser on their official Facebook page since the beginning of 2014. I too leaked a picture on my Instagram too, oppss! 😀 . I’ve been using Estée Lauder Micro Essence for a good full month now, plus the product was officially launched on the 15th January 2014 and stocks are already stock up at all Estée Lauder counters nationwide. It is only fair that you read on and digest it throughout the weekend before dashing out of the house to the nearest counter. Trust me, it’s going to be a good one. *Hint: I have a Before and After comparison picture*

Estee Lauder Micro Essence 1
Before I start, you might want to note that this is Asia exclusive only product. The idea, development, testing and proven result of this Micro Essence are all based on Asian women’s skin care needs. Plus we Asian just love a brighter and fairer skin don’t we 🙂

A lot of people are confuse with Estée Lauder Micro Essence. Honestly I was too at the beginning. Is it a toner? Is it a pre-serum? Softener? Or Essence? Let’s make things simple for you. Micro Essence is a treatment lotion aka essence-in-lotion. In Asia, lotion is also another word for toner. According to Estée Lauder, Micro Essence is the first-of-its-kind “essence-in-lotion” that strengthens skin’s foundation with micro power to reveal a translucent, “angelic glow” from within. Micro-Nutrient Bio-Ferment is then invented which was inspired by the strength and resilience of extremophiles, nature’s “Ultimate Survivors” that works by activating the skin’s multiple pro-youth functions and help to reset skin’s look. I often talk about the importance of skin’s ability to reset all cell counters to ZERO in order to boost the youthfulness process in epidermis. Micro Essence work in a similar way too. Prolonged use of Estée Lauder Micro Essence will help to strengthen skin barrier making it more resistant toward all signs of aging.
