Review : All New Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating Range

When is the last time you check the suitability of skincare before you go ahead to purchase one set for your skin?
I remember those days, I tend to use brightening skincare then later on change to anti-wrinkle. With too many skincare brands and many claimed goodness to the skin, one may end up to keep on changing skincare just like me.
This will cause skin conditions. Not sure about you but for me, the ageing and environment factor takes the toll to my skin. I noticed my skin becomes red and gets irritated very easily. This leads to uneven tone and texture. Those days, I used brightening skincare for my uneven skin tone but end up causing dry skin along the way. From then on, I was very careful in selecting my skincare.

Have you heard or tried Hada Labo skincare range before?

I personally love Had Labo because of the good quality product and it does as what it claimed. I love the hydrating series.

Recently, Hada Labo launched the All-New Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating Range, which was just in time since my existing skincare is out. I have tried All-New Hada Labo+Sensitive Hydrating range for two weeks now.

1. Hada Labo+Sensitive Hydrating Face Wash (100g)

2. Hada Labo+Sensitive Hydrating Lotion (170ml)

3. Hada Labo+Sensitive Hydrating Milk (90ml)

4. Hada Labo+Sensitive Hydrating Cream (50g)

SOOTHE REDNESS - Contains Alpha Bisabolol and Gingerol to calm as well as soothe irritation and redness on the skin.

I noticed one of the ingredients in Hada Labo+Sensitive Hydrating Range is Hyaluronic Acid which is a signature ingredient for Hydrating series. Hyaluronic Acid penetrates deep into the skin to intensely hydrate and restore skin's moisture.  I don't even need to worry since this range is pH balanced and free from fragrance, colourant, alcohol and mineral oil.

Texture: Creamy and thick. Just use a little bit to make it last longer.

Review : Anna Sui 5x Miniature Collection

This is the result of my duty-free shopping spree on air during my recent trip. hehehe...
What you expect, it is too bored in a low-cost carrier 6 hours flight journey...I end up going on a shopping spree to fill up my boringness. Anna Sui is not even my favourite perfume, to begin with. I was eyeing for my all-time favourite perfume Elizabeth Arden,  Estee Lauder and Kenzo

But hey...all I can afford is taking the low-cost carrier which leaves you with not many choices of selection. 

One thing attracted me to Anna Sui Miniature collection is for its vibrant box colour. It's my favourite colour purple. Sucker, right? Impulsive purchase to begin with. huhuhuh

Back home...did the unboxing of the new miniature collection with hope the fragrance smells is to my liking. High hope..you know!

OMG! the pouch is sooooo...beautiful. So colourful, full of flowery embroidery and feminine like. I am loving my impulsive purchase already. I can use this pouch to replace my almost belong to the museum pouch. Do you believe it? I have been using the same pouch for almost 6 years already? Deserve replacement! Convince myself this is a good buy. WTH!

Jeng! Jeng! slide out the beautiful miniature. Loving the design of the unique miniature perfume bottles.
This box contains of 5 x 5ml Eau De Toilette. 
For the benefit of those who don't know about the different between Eau De Parfum and Eau De Toilette :

* Eau De Parfum is a stronger perfume compare to an Eau De Toilette since its use a higher concentration of oils.

So it is safe to conclude the difference between an Eau De Parfum and an Eau De Toilette is the amount of 'juice' or perfume concentrate mixed with alcohol.

Anna Sui 5 x Miniature Collection smells so so so so sweetttttttt!!!! Love this light and lovely smells of this Anna Sui collections. 

It came with 5 variants and all smell sweet scents and brings pleasure to my nose. No regrets! I am not a fragrance expert to describes the smell in details. I will try to make it as simple as possible to describe this to avoid any misleading descriptions.

Anna Sui Fantasia Eau de Toilette comes with a unicorn bottle cap. Its smells woodsy and with some floral hints. 

Anna Sui La Vie de Boheme which comes with a lavender based concoction with hints of pear and red berries sweet smells. Ahhhh...so over the moon with this smells.

Anna Sui Secret Wish bottle comes with a fragrance of garden full of roses. OMG! for those who know me... I love the smells of roses. I love rich of this bottle aroma.

Anna Sui Lucky Wish which brings you the scents of citrus and floral fragrance. Totally refreshing smells.

Anna Sui Fantasia Mermaid seems to smell more like floral and fruity and makes this as one of my favourites. Lovely smell.

Since my readers are all luckier than me, I recommended you to go to the Air Asia duty-free online store and redeem it with your big points to get this deliver to your onboard seat for next vacation.

I am not so lucky since I failed to pre-book this online due 'bloody system glitch for too long which the useless customer service unable to helps and blame it to my internet connection. WTH! Yes!!! I cursed them big time due to that! Hope not so bad luck due to my bad mouthed to them.. huhuhuh

You will curse them like me too if you were me since I tried to make purchase almost every day for 2 weeks before my flight date. Always failed to make the payment and then hang to that page like forever. Its the same error every day for two weeks. I cleared the cache, cookies or whatsoever. Use my phone, my tablet, office laptop, my pc and all same error. My fault meh?

The customer service performance is totally hopeless, big time.... I would say. I keep wishing that fellow who attended to my inquiries have insomnia like the rest of his/ her life. Served you right! Don't do your work properly.

Review : Face Republic Super Screen Sun Gel

I bought this out of my frustration because the sunscreen which I was eyeing for many months still has no sign of dropping the price. Who will pay more than hundreds for a tube of sunscreen? Huh! So full of themselves to price that high for just a sunscreen?  I was at Guardian pharmacy and notice Face Republic Super Screen Sun Gel SPF 50+ tester. Awesome! can even try this out before buying. At least this is one humble brand who is generous enough to let the buyer try out before making the decision to purchase.

I fall in love when I read a gel type. Wow! my style... and when the first drop hit my skin... I was like...this is it! I ladle it into my skin and amaze of the lightweight, non-greasy and it quickly disappears into my skin. Best of all no white cast left on my skin.

I was glad to make a decision to check this out. I heard this product is the Face Republic best selling. Indeed this is a good try if you are looking for some good protection at the same time gives you perfect lightweight texture gel sunscreen. Despite the milkier appearance, this gel is easily spread out on skin compared to other sunscreens I have tried before.

I love the hints of  citrus smells from this product and most of all it not sticky and quite addicting to apply this more and more. huhuhuh

It left my skin hydrated, look refresh and healthier too. This is coming with me on my next birthday travel.

Travel China : Guide Geo National Park and Wetlands, Xining

Another 1.5 hours drive away from Xining City, the driver which I hired for a day drove me to this awesome National Geopark which located at Guide. Guide is a small Tibetan city near south of Xining. 

Its another scenic view throughout the journey. 

Ahigong National Geopark

My first stop was at the Guide National Geological Park Ashogong Peak Scenic Area. It was a cultural scenic spot with Danxia landform as the main natural landscape and earth culture. I paid 100 yuan entrance fees. 

It was a guided tour. Obviously in Mandarin. The first stop was the museum. So I just read the English description even though not that many English here. But still, enjoy the findings and surrounding this place. 

Together with others, the tour guide took the visitors on the electric car further into the national geopark. Yup! by foot may not be possible since the place is super huge and someplace might be dangerous to walk alone.

I really enjoy the view here. Ther wildflowers is awesome beautiful here.

The place looks dry and I have a feeling like in the cowboy movie scene without a horse on site. hehehe

Beautiful and colourful landform here and I would say nothing new since our country has this too. But over here kind of commercialize and also the landform looks like colourful alps. 

I spend almost one hour and a half here and my next destination which is suppose to be good view left me with a disappointment.

Yellow River Scenic Area

The unique of this place is the origin of the 3 rivers (Yellow, Yangtze and Mekong). I manage to visit the start of the Yellow River. Which is not even yellow. The water was super clear here.

Nothing much I can do here since the place was flooded the day before. Apparently the water level overflow to the main road and left all the dirt and sand on the river bank. However, it was a good visit to see the clear water yellow river since the one I saw at Lanzhou near Zhongshan bridge was super yellowish water. Interesting nature discovery here.

Along the way here, I pass by a huge Longyazia Dam. I don't stop here since my next itinerary may require more time.

Huanghe Qing Wetland Parks

I visited this wetland on the way back to Xining City. I was the best decision. 

I paid 60 yuan entrance fees and then another 40 yuan for an electric car tour. The place was super huge and the view of the wetland was super awesome.

Its a great place for photography too. I saw many wedding shoots here.

Too bad they don't rent a normal bicycle here. They only have a tricycle or tandem bicycle. That is why I opted for an electric car which is a wise choice. I keep waving to those couples who were with sweat riding the bicycle. hahaha.. don't skip this wetland park if you are near Guide area. This place is super worth it for an afternoon walk.

I love my colourful journey and really glad to come this far.

Travel China : A Day At Qinghai Lake and Tibetan Plateau

It was supposed to be a highlight of my journey to Xining, I was not so sure why I feel this place a bit overrated for me since the travel from the City kind of almost 2.5 hours. I hired a private driver which I found from TripAdvisor even before flying to Lanzhou. Everything was pre-booked and the journey started at 7am. The old man with a gold sedan car came to fetch me. He doesn't even speak a word of English. I booked an English speaking driver. It makes a lot of difference since the price paid was for English and I received only Chinese. Haihhhh... compare to the driver whom I met the day before this trip he even offered to bring me to Qinghai Lake at almost half of the price I paid. aihhhh...too late to cancel though!

I decided to just accept and try to enjoy myself throughout the journey.

The journey kind of scenic and with yellow rapeseed flower everywhere and at some of the grassland, I can see some Yaks having a feast.
Toilet break kind of very challenging throughout the journey. I experience the worst toilet on the way to Qinghai Lake and hold on to my pee on the way back. Just because my first toilet break stop kind of horror and it still haunts me with lots of treasure discovery. WTH! 

Before reach to Qinghai Lake, the driver stops at the Tibetan Plateau. I love the green grassland at this place. The wildflowers here are so beautiful and pleasing to my eyes. Since this place is managed by Tibetan Autonomy, I can learn some of the Tibetan Cultures here. 

For those who love to ride the animal can try on Yaks or horse. I am against animal riding...so just take some photos and say 'Hi'. hehehe

I finally, reached to Qinghai Lake area and there are so many people here. The driver shows me the place to buy the entrance ticket and then told me he will come to pick me up in 3 hours time at the same place he drops me. 

It was drizzling rain so I end up rent a bicycle instead of walking. You can rent the electric bike there too. I was really glad to rent a bike. The place was super huge to go on foot.

Even though it was raining, I still able to enjoy the view. Along the way, grab some meal because the weather was super cold so a hot bowl of Beef Noodles and refreshing yoghurt drink was a good treat.

Other than cycling and enjoying the view there is not many activities here unless you are into water sports.

Love the flowers here. If you are into the cafe, can drop by to some cafe nearby but the price will be super tourist price. huhuhuh

No need to stop at the roadside, here also can enjoy taking a photo in the rapeseed flower fields. A beautiful scenic place which I think that Instagrammer would love this place.

If you have time can stop at the salt lake or can even combine this with Guide National Park trip but I separated the trip to enjoy more time at one place.

For those who prepare to go Qinghai Lake be prepared for a 2.5 hours to drive away from Xining City and pack some food for a picnic here. That will make your trip more fun. Like I said the view throughout the journey kind of scenic with some yellow rapeseed flowers fields and herd of yaks along the way.

If you ask me about Qinghai Lake itself...boring to me. I only enjoy the flowers field around rather than Qinghai Lake. huhuhuh...
