Quest for Skincare Products Part 1

All these while I have only been using Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid face wash (claimed to have twice the moisture retention capacity. Not sure what this is though!). I use it once or twice a day, depending if I do not fall asleep with Baby Iqbal while nursing him. As I have mentioned before, it cleans my light make up very well and does not dry my skin.

I have been looking a moisturiser for my face when my sister recommended me to use Skin79 Snail Nutrition BB Cream. I like this cream because it gives a dewy look however after few hours, my T-zone will start to look oily. Seems like the cream has no oil control (should it or not? Hmm)

So now I am on a quest on finding a full range of skincare products that will help me to improve my skin. Especially when I realised the blackheads and pores on my nose are getting visible and I hate it! Been using the Biore strips and it does not work especially on the sides of my nose. ;(

Been talking and exchanging knowledge with my best friends about this. One of them suggested me to use Bio Essence Tanaka White products range. She said it works well on her skin and since we kinda have a similar skin type, it MIGHT going to work for me too!

While checking the Bio Essence site and after reading, Hydra Spa range attracted me more just because it hydrates, protects and nourishes skin which I prefer instead of whitening. Went to Hua Ho to check, they do not have Hydra Spa instead Tri Action Aqua Boost which I suppose is similar.

After much deliberation and thinking, reading reviews, comparing pros and cons - not that I am a beauty products expert. So between Bio Essence Tri Action Aqua Boost and Tanaka white, I have finally decided to try ???

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…
