More and more brands are coming up an all-in-one product and Hada Labo is one of them. The latest addition to the brand’s wide array of Hyaluronic Acid based skincare is the Whitening Cooling Gel Lotion, a multifunction 5-in-1 lotion that functions as a lotion, mask, essence, astringent, and emulsion.

Dr. Jart+ V7 Toning Light: Instantly brighten complexion and lighten acne marks faster than other cream

Rumour has it that everyone in Korea is getting a hand on this amazing instant whitening Dr-Jart+ V7 Toning Light cream. It’s not a surprise to me as Asians are very much into the whitening or brightening and so am I 🙂 . As much as I like to bronze my face when I do my makeup, however I’m not willing to let go of having a fairer skin.

Dr-Jart+ V7 Toning Light
As I shared in my recent Beauty Tips: How To Lighten Acne Marks, you would have guessed that I absolutely like love this Dr-Jart+ V7 Toning Light. Everything about this product is sturdy. The jar is made from heavy duty glass and the cap is made from heavy duty plastic with brand name and product description embossed all over the top. The fact that everything is in a simple packaging and white makes my world better.

Estée Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening: Say goodbye to dull skin and hello brighter even-toned skin!

I’ve been secretly using the full range of the NEW Estée Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening for months now. I’ve also secretly wean off from using acne mark gel and a few other skin care brand/range to the basic anti-aging and brightening skin care regime. Recently I received lots of compliment that I have good skin although personally I hated the large pores and acne marks. I was told by a BA during a makeover session that good skin to them is all about the skin texture refinement, radiance and healthy skin. According to them, I have plump, bouncy skin, glowing complexion and I don’t have pimples or wrinkles. I was secretly giggling because I was using a brand that is not theirs 😛

Last year I trial CyberWhite HD range and it gave me fantastic result. You can click on this link for the review. This year, Estée Lauder came out with a whole new Crescent White and I get to try the whole range!

Estee Lauder Crescent White
Despite my professed love for CyberWhite HD and how it totally changed my brightening skin care routine, there are many who doesn’t quite like the range as much as I do due to the slippery texture and scent. I personally have no issue with that and I managed to work around it but for those who are not happy with those issues, well good news! Estée Lauder heard you and your feedback because I find that this new Crescent White is the improvised formulation of CyberWhite HD, if not better. Whatever you complaint before are rectified through this Crescent White range.

Estée Lauder Review: Skin Care Skin Care - Whitening

Bringing my daily skin care regimen to a whole new level with Estée Lauder CyberWhite HD Advanced Spot Correcting Essence and 2014 Newest Addition, Advanced Brightening Moisture Creme

I have not mention before that my low self esteem when it comes to my face is acne marks. I was born and raised in a conservative environment and taking care of the skin is definitely out of the picture. My mum never use any skin care before all her life. The only makeup she own and applied before on her face is on her wedding day. It’s a good thing that both my parents are born with good skin. Growing up I don’t have any skin problem, that was until secondary school. I’ve read and I was told about puberty and how the skin changes but never in my life I would foresee breakout happening to me. All I remember was my breakout wasn’t cystic acne type. Thinking back to the old days, I was thankful that I was only strike with normal acne breakout. Even so no one ever told me not to squeeze those acne, no one told me not to touch my face with my fingers and no one told me to try this product or that product to minimise acne. My brother inherited all the fair, smooth and good skin from my mum while I inherited a more rough skin appearance from my dad. So my brother still look good during his puberty time and I look like a total smush. I then discovered the wonder of 2-way foundation and secretly apply it onto my face for the last 2-years of secondary school. The foundation covered all the acne marks and I wasn’t feeling that low self esteem as I did before.

Although my complexion can be considered as fair, however I never say no to whitening or brightening products to lighten acne marks that still follows me to date. Lately I’ve been quite athletic in the “whitening Olympic” season, trying out different whitening products then I ask myself…what’s next? Time to go HD 🙂

Estee Lauder CyberWhite HD 1
Back in 2012 I bought myself a few CyberWhite products to use. Then in 2013 Estée Lauder launched CyberWhite HD range. This range was inspired after Estée Lauder Research, a brand that has over 25 years of expertise in brightening found that exposure to pollution, in addition to UV, can trigger a response that leads to an excess production of melanin.

Clarins Event Review: Skin Care Skin Care - Hydrating Skin Care - Whitening

Clarins New White Plus Total Luminescent Day and Night Duo, a complete hydrating brightening action that optimize millions of “micro-mirrors” in every layer of the skin to reflect light

The beginning of 2014 is also a brand new beginning for Clarins whitening range whereas the brand recently has completed it’s reformulation of White Plus HP to White Plus Total Luminescent. Not sure if you are aware but last year Clarins starting to embark onto this new breakthrough technology by reformulating all of their whitening products except for Whitening Repairing Night Cream. Now the new range is complete.

Contrary to Caucasian living in a much more colder climate than Asian where we are constantly exposed to sunny and hot weather all year round. It only make sense that Asian women often long for a translucent and fairer complexion that is also smooth and even skin tone at the same time. Clarins understand that need and is now emphasising more on achieving a brighter and luminescent skin.

Clarins New White Plus Total Luminescent Day and Night Duo 1
Research done by Clarins shows that it’s breakthrough technology reveals that the skin is made up of millions of “micro-mirrors” that have the ability to reflect light. With this research result on hand, Clarins New White Plus Total Luminescent range is infused with unique “Trans Luminescent Complex” to revive skin’s micro-mirrors, ability to achieve ultimate translucency, even, fair and healthy looking rosy luminescent complexion.

Review: Hada Labo New Face Wash Launched With 3 Variants – Hydra & Whitening, Deep Clean & Pore Refining and Deep Clean & Blemish Control Face Wash

What attract me to Hada Labo shelf in the drugstore is the packaging. I’m a fan of the color white especially when it comes to beauty related stuff, just like the blog layout. I thought it looked clean :D. Another distinctive attraction of the brand Hada Labo is all the Japanese writing on the front tube of the bottle or tube. It’s like a mystery as I can’t read Japanese but somehow attracted to it. The Japs make good skin care and makeup don’t you think so? 😉

Asian skin type and need are unique and different due to the climate and environment surrounding. Hada Labo recognized these differences and came up with different types of cleanser previously for example Moisturizing Face Wash, es Foaming Wash, AHA/BHA Cleansing and Whitening Face Wash. Just last month Hada Labo launched three new face wash products, and so I was sent these Hada Labo New Face Wash to try out. Maybe Hada Labo sense that I was running out of cleanser eh?

Hada Labo New Face Wash 1
Just the other day I was telling my friends over Facebook that I wash my face three times a day and my friend said it’s too much. I disagree, because I have oily skin and my three times of washing only include morning after waking up, double cleanse after removing makeup and just before I go to sleep. These three times are the main face washing that I can’t skip, or I’ll end up with a face that I could even fried up an egg lol.
