Laneige Experience

I am 'addicted' to my quest in finding the right skincare products. New obsession! Erkkk

I think it was last week (before I decided to try Bio Essence Tanaka White range) that I went to Laneige at The Mall looking clueless to find skincare products.

The nice SA told me that I could have a mini facial to see which of their range will suits me best. She even checked the moisture level of my face - eyes was normal 50+%, cheeks was very dry 10+% and lip area was dry 30+%. Made me even more keen on finding products that can hydrate and moisturise my face. Hence I finally made my decision to try Bio Essence Tanaka White range.

L-R: Water Bank Eye Gel Cream, Gel type cleanser, Water Bank Essence, Balancing Emulsion Moisture and Power Essential Skin Refiner (like toner) and all of the above cost $247.90 

So yesterday I went for their mini facial. They checked again my face moisture level - eyes was normal 60+%, cheeks was normal 60+% and lips was dry 30+%. The percentages have improved just after using almost one week the Bio Essence Tanaka White range. Weee! :D

I definitely love the feel of my skin after the facial and my face moisture level all went to above 80%!! However looking at the price tags for 5 basic products they recommended to use made me think twice triple. Husband even calculated that if I have to buy their products twice a year and I have about 45 years to live (according to Brunei's average life span) it's going to cost me about $20,000 excluding the other 'necessities'. *lol* Sweet! ;p

But I'm not gna lie. I was sold! Especially on their Laneige Water Bank Essence. I'm going to get that next. And the Laneige Balancing Emulsion Moisture. Oh have to get the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX too. I love the scent and how fresh I feel after using them. Owh so in love! *stop!* Ok, for now those are in my list ;)

    1. Which one Wina? The experience kena check or their products? Hehe.. I have yet to try their products. If ikut experience, the products seems to be okay. Tpi byk steps sja compared to Bio Essence cleanse-tone-moisturise (day or night cream). Laneige ada two extra steps - pre-moisturise and essence (and eye gel when needed).

  2. Your reviews are tempting me *lol* Need to sleep over this dulu before I made up my mind. Pasal once I set my mind to start caring for my skin, nothing can stop me. That'll lead to another branch of cash flowing out the savings hahaha. Fuh fuh fuh!! Relax.. Clear the leather head dulu *lol*

    1. Haha you can try their trial kit dulu. My SA told me that they have two trial kits left last week! If you dont want to spend so much then Bio Essence is enough ;) Mesti try dulu which one you prefer hehe

  3. I am using Laneige Water Bank Essence and I love it! It doesn't break out on my skin and it doesn't make it my skin even oilier. But unfortunately, the price was steep. I got mine in Korea, half price cheaper than the one retailed in Brunei. xD

Now we know

Yesterday after work, I told Dear Husband that I want to go to Yayasan to look at Dr Ding's opening times. I could've called but I want to try our luck as well in case the clinic still opens.
When we arrived around 6pm, we went straight to the clinic and I took a picture of their opening times. And guess what? The clinic will be open at 7pm! I was excited and nervous at the same time.

We waited for almost an hour and had our ultrasound - witnessed by Dear husband and baby Iqbal. And we finally can confirm the gender for our baby! I'm so excited and happy but my EDD and baby's weight worrying me. I definitely need to eat more! :(

Let me introduce to you, Baby A. 😍

Designer Bag Wish List

I have this list wandering in my mind for a while now and somehow it bothers me. Lol! Might as well do a post about it right? I don't think it differs a lot from my previous list though.

1. Chanel Classic Flap - medium, caviar, black with GHW This couldn't get anymore classic that the bag itself. Although I have been liking the Mini version of it more recently. With the price difference and the capacity, it seems like the mini one gets another point from me.

Also, I have been considering to get the WOC. I must say, getting a WOC is trickier. Other Designer brands have this too - I have been eyeing on the YSL one. I know Gucci and Dior have WOC too. Different price point but the capacity are almost the same for each. It's either to go with the Designer name or the price. What would you do?
Chanel WOC or YSL WOC?
2. Louis Vuitton Alma BB - preferably in navy or red
Yes yes, I know I already have one in the PM size which means that this purchase will only be justifiable if I sel…

Review: Bio Essence Tanaka White Range

As I have mentioned before, Bio Essence Tanaka White range was recommended by my best friend who is currently using it. Since we have the same skin type, this range should works on me as well. I finally bought the starter kit from Hua Ho cost $8.35 which includes facial wash, toner, day and night cream, a sample of essence and a piece of sheet mask.

Our night cream has finished and we have stopped using this range, currently trying out laneige. So, after using Bio Essence Tanaka White range for 2.5 weeks, I can see that my skin have improved. My skin moisture level improved just after one week using it. I can see that my face is smoother and radiant. My dark spots lighten and blackheads become less visible. I like this range as it is simple to use, just cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are sufficient for someone who does not like to apply a lot of products on their face.

Gentle Cleansing foam. When I first started using this wash, it was too drying for my face. I didn't feel m…
