Review – Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Essence

During the recent mega sale conducted by Watsons (a durgstore common in Singapore), I picked up the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Essence to try. I’ve always heard good reviews about it but was hesitant to try because I saw that it contained Meadowfoam Seed Oil or Limnanthes alba oil (I’ve noticed that products containing this ingredient tends to clog my pores terribly even though … Read More Review – Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Essence

Review – Shiseido Anessa Perfect UV Sunscreen Aqua Booster SPF 50+ PA ++++

I must admit that when it comes to beauty and skincare products, I’ve got a roving eye. I’m always on the constant lookout for the latest products with interesting ingredients or textures. I guess that’s why my cupboard is full of unopened products. I’ve only got one face and a limited amount of space to slather all of them at once.
