Hada Labo Review

Today I am going to review Hada Labo - whitening range and also hydrating range. I had done some research prior getting the product and noticed some good review from other bloggers and decided to try the sample pack. You can get it from Watson around RM26+- cannot remember exactly but I remembered there was a promotion recently. (click on the picture to enlarge)

Hydrating Range Review

 The sample pack came with cleanser (12g), toner (30ml) and lotion milk (30ml), packing is simple and cute.


Description behind the box, if you notice on the top right corner, its says - fragrance free, colorant free, mineral free and alcohol free. You can read the description of each item from the picture - basically this range is emphasizing on hydrating your skin and lock in the moisture in your skin. Notice on the directions that - you need not use a cotton pad - but you need to pour some of the toner/lotion on your palm and gently apply and pat onto your face until absorb. 


Verdict:
I love the cleanser, my face feels moist, clean, smooth and matte. The second step is to put on the toner, it absorb onto my skin after tapping few times and my skin feels hydrate - I love it. The third step is putting on the lotion, I don't really like the lotion as it leave a shiny finish on my skin, probably only good to use at night time for myself. When you purchase - please see carefully as the packing for the toner and moisturizing milk is quite similar.

Rating for Hada Labo Hydrating range
Cleanser: 5/5
Toner: 5/5
Moisturizing Milk: 2/5



Whitening Range Review


The sample pack came with cleanser (12g), toner (30ml) and lotion (30ml), packing is simple and cute. 


Description behind the box, ONE DROP LIGHTS UP YOUR SKIN. You can read the description of each item from the picture - basically this range is emphasizing on WHITENING your skin and lock in long lasting moisture in your skin. Notice on the directions that - you need not use a cotton pad - but you need to pour some of the toner/lotion on your palm and gently apply and pat onto your face until absorb. 




Verdict:
The cleanser is not as good as the hydrating range. The toner is easily absorb onto skin but the effect need to use long run to see the whitening effect and reduction of dark spot. The whitening milk is also giving my face a shiny finish which I don't like, but I think it's good to use at night time, as it's when our skin actively rejuvenating.

Rating for Hada Labo Whitening range
Cleanser: 3/5
Toner: ?/5 (not sure yet - need to use in long run to see result of reducing dark spot)
Moisturizing Milk: 2/5 (don't like shiny finish)

Have you use this product before? please share your thoughts. 


Prayer of the day



LORD, the God of my salvation, I call out by day; 
at night I cry aloud in your presence. 
Let my prayer come before you; 
incline your ear to my cry.
Psalm 88:2-3

Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies.
 Psalms 103:1-4
“God, you care deeply for broken-hearted people.  This is a promise you make: You are close.  We pray for all those who are crippled by broken relationships. God, heal broken hearts.  We cannot fix our own wounds.  But you can. You are a mender of broken hearts.  We ask for this miracle, in the name of Jesus.”

Himalaya AyurSlim Review: 1st Week

I just purchased AyurSlim about a week ago, (It's about RM60 plus at Watson for one month supply 2 boxes x 60 capsules) and will be continuing the review until I finish the the one month supply package. Before purchasing this I have been googling the review from others and some says it is effective and some not, but I am eager to give it a try anyway to see if it works on me.

Description on the box:
Limits Fat production and reduces cravings for sugar.
The Ayurslim regimen consists of 2 capsules to be taken twice a day, 15mins after breakfast and dinner. After achieving the desired weight loss, you may reduce capsule intake to a maintenance dosage of 1 capsule twice a day. 

Recommendation for best result:
Ayurslim should be taken along with a reduce calorie diet, complemented with 20mins of moderate physical activity 3-4 times a week.


  • eat small frequent meal. Dinner should be the smallest meal.
  • Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily
  • Increase the amount of fresh fruit, vege and juices in your diet
  • Cut down on sweets, colas, fried food, butter, potato chips, cheese and high fat food.
  • Help Ayurslim to help you. While you should start seeing results after 4-6 weeks, allow at least three months for full benefits. 
  • With Ayurslim, you will well on your way to getting slim the safe herbal way. 
Verdict:
I just wanted to say that I feel good taking this regimen so far. I will write an update review again in a few weeks time.

Update: 22 July 2012
After one month, my weight is still the same, I don't think this product is working if you don't compliment it with exercise and eating less and as the product claims sometimes takes 3 months to start seeing result. My personal opinion is if you are the lazy type and doesn't like to diet, don't waste your money to buy this product.

Update: 21 April 2013

If you follow my blog you will know that I recently purchased the Ayurslim plus SG, read here if you are interested to know the details. I initially thought that this product is with improved formula. It is the same except they have one extra bottle of capsule called SG which you need to compliment with Ayurslim capsule. SG stands for Shuddha Guggulu, if you google it you will find that this herb is well known for effective weight loss and fat burning agent, regulate metabolism and lowering cholesterol/ I tried it for one week and have to quit after that due to the side effect - the SG made my body heaty to the point like having a fever.

Clinique BB Cream Review


I love BB cream because of the multi-benefits such as moisturize, SPF, anti aging and also able cover minor flaws on my face. Clinique is a well known brand world wide and since they have came out with BB cream as well, without doubt I purchased one and try it out to see if it is any better than other brand out there.

Description on the Clinique BB Cream tube - front:
  • Age defense BB Cream
  • SPF 30/PA+++
  • Base protect/anti aging
Description on the back:
  • Allergy tested
  • 100% fragrance free
  •  Dermatologist tested
  • Formulated for Asian skins
  • Perfecting cream conceals, hydrates, helps prevent premature signs of aging with UVA/UVB protection. Optics instantly help reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. 
  • Special ingredients help defend against environmental aggressors and soothe skin. Long wearing, oil control formula works beautifully under foundation, or alone. Skin feel soft and smooth. Looks brighter, perfected. Apply daily all over face.
Verdict: 

The texture of the cream is just nice, not too thick or watery. No fragrant and can be easily applied on skin. What I like about this BB Cream is that it can cover the minor discoloration on my skin and the SPF 30, so I don't need to wear another sun screen cream unless going outdoor for long hours. My skin feels smooth, hydrates and soft, it doesn't feel oily at all. Very nice and worth buying for the price as can use up to 3 months plus for me.  :)

Verdict:

The texture is light like foam and as you can see from one of the picture above it's watery and provide minimum coverage, unable to cover dark spot as mentioned in the above description on provide coverage for minor flaw on face. Pores are however still visible and the color is too tan and yellowish for me. Not suitable for me unfortunately due to the color, I didn't manage to test it before purchase due to no tester provided - wasted almost RM60.

Rate 1/5 I will not be repurchase for sure too bad :(..
