Quest for Skincare Products Part 2

While I was reading reviews for both Bio Essence Tanaka White and Tri Action Aqua Boost ranges, I came across a 'disturbing' facts.

Methylparaben. I remember seeing Baby Iqbal's wash "paraben free" so when I saw a post highlighting the existence of methylparaben in the day cream I was panicked surprise. To know the dangers of this paraben will lead to, scared me even more!

  • The articles that highlight the existence of Methylparaben in Bio Essence Tanaka White day cream [here
  • The 15 Harmful Cosmetic Ingredients [here]
  • The 10 Toxic Ingredients to Avoid [here
  • The Dangers of Methylparaben [here]
  • 'Paraben Free': Should You Care [here]
  • Parabens : What are they, and are they really that bad? [here

After I found that out, I checked every products I owned for their ingredients. I am aware that a high level of paraben will only lead to the diseases mentioned but we probably have been using products containing parabens for most of our life and maybe in every single product we use. Scaryy!!!

So now I am DETERMINED to use skincare products which does not have any paraben it in. This will includes my body wash, shampoo, lotion, deodorant and etc. Hopefully I can find the alternative. IF my information here is wrong, please let me know.

Anyway, I have decided to try Bio Essence Tanaka White series (only their facial wash stilll contain methylparaben which means I still need to find another facial wash). All of the Tri Action Aqua Boost range contain methylparaben. Sadly. The new Bird's Nest facial wash does not contain paraben but it's a whitening. I'm not sure if I want to try it.

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…
