Since i didn’t get to go to Japan (sob), i find myself seeking solace in flipping through Japanese magazines in Kinokuniya pretending i’m in a bookstore in Osaka, or playing pachinko on my android pretending i’m in an arcade center in Shibuya, or go to Sasa with Aud to buy Japanese make up products pretending we’re in Don Quihote, or just looking at random Japanese words. I also downloaded Kanji Test for primary school students on my phone -_-.
Or getting new range of Japanese skin care product and pretending i’m using it during my Sakura trip that i canceled (sob).
Was invited to Hada Labo’s new product launch, which is the skin care brand that i started using a year ago during my trip to Nagoya.
That’s my host family’s beautiful front porch.
It is since then also my favorite skin care brand that is super awesome at the motestestest affordable prices. It’s hard to imagine something so value for money is as good as, if not better than some of the high end skin care brands from cosmetic counters.
8 girl bloggers who were invited to Hada Labo’s new product launch!
And did you realize we’re wearing the same top!!!! #alwayshappens
Hada Labo Retinol range.
You can recognize this new range in their whole new fiery red packaging!
why the day’s dresscode is Perfect White X Simple dash of Red.
Mine was on the skirt
Cindy and i
The new Retinol range has 5 products that not only hydrates your skin, but also has firming and lifting effects, perfect for people who are concerned about aging. *ahem ahem *looks around self consciously
So happy! I was quite satisfied with the previous range because it works well on hydration, but i still wanted something that as anti-aging effect *accepts truth of life. Now this is perfect for me! And it’s so affordable i don’t have to feel kiamsiap when i use other products, always use very little amount then feels heartache when i use it on the neck. Now i can apply to my whole body HAHAHA.
Doing a moisture test on my hand. This is before.
And after i apply just one drop of Hada Labo Lifting and Firming Lotion.
Just like the previous product, it has a sticky effect on your skin, which comes from the Super Hyaluronic Acid that locks all the moisture in your skin. You just need a small amount and gently pat it until it is all absorbed.
This is the complete set of products i brought home!
Everything is in Japanese so you probably can’t read HAHAHA. #trollface.jpg
But there’s English info printed on the box la, though you probably take longer time shopping than me hehe.
Here’s a brief review of the product!
This is the new hero! The most popular lotion that i use as a toner after cleansing my face. It doesn’t contain alcohol so there’s zero irritation. It is also very light, but the hydration stays through one whole night it’s amazing.
This is the essense! It’s to be used after the lotion. Sometimes i skip this because i am too lazy. But the magic of this is that it not only smoothes the surface but also penetrates deeply into the skin. Sometimes i even use it as a quick fix for my cakey make-up after a long day, it’s almost like a wrinkle filler, you can see you skin becoming smoother and less fine lines!
This is the milk, not to be confused with the lotion because the bottle is quite similar. But it is milky color white the lotion is clear. It has a velvety feeling to it, and it is the perfect ending to your beauty routine right before you sleep. It keeps the moisture locked in and you feel hydrated all the way till the next day.
This is the cream for people who likes an even richer texture. If the milk is… milk, well this is like cream cheese. It’s thicker and extremely nourishing. I’d totally bring this for my winter travels.
Last it is the mask. I have been using Hada Labo’s mask and i must say it’s a god sent for lazy people like me. Some days when you come home after crazy partying or events and you’re too lazy to repeat the whole skin care nonsense, i just put this on for 10 minutes and pat the remaining essence until all is absorbed. And when you wake up the next day it’s the best feeling ever.
After using this new range for about two weeks, i think it’s even more hydrating than the previous ones i’m using. Seriously my skin feels like it’s swimming in jello all the time *doink doink. Plus the bonus is that with the new formula, it reduces fine lines too! Need not spend extra money to buy those wrinkle fillers!
I think i have just found the perfect Mother’s Day gift. And the price range is only from RM49.90 to RM75.90. You can get them exclusively from Guardian.
Oohhh I’ve heard about this brand, but I’ve never used it! I heard the toner was good 😀 What product in the range do you use? Do they also have like a facial wash thinger/moisturizer? I’m really clueless about this 😀
Btw, you look as pretty as ever! 🙂 I love your skin as well 😀
they do! they have new exfoliator as well. and also mist spray. Now i use everything that i blogged above 😛
A perfect gift from mummy! Stay young forever 😀
FROM ALSO CAN!!! I DONT MIND!!!!!!
Ya saw the ad for this product before. the “doink doink” effect really makes ppl tempted to try. After reading your post, I think I’m going to get them cos my face is sagging…(from babyface to grandma face)
yea i remember the commercial very clearly too!
Hey I find it confusing because some of their products are made in china while some are made in japan….
huh, the one i got says made in japan wor.
#14, your eyelid look like mini indon thousand-layer cake 😯
Is this line of skincare only for dry-skin ppl? Can people with oily skin also use this? 🙁
im sure it’s for all skin type!
I love your beautiful blog, i love you look tsyle and your make up style!!
But you have a lot of thins like shoes, clothes, make up..can you make a tour of your room to see as how you can organaise all this things, please? (i don’t know what i mean..)
Kumiko from Italy

I use cetamagrocol cream
Very cheap works even better than all that girly stuff
and Im a 47 year old straight man who has used his girl friends/ mothers creams and arrived at this point
E45 is also good as is vaseline, I used to use that in the army, most soldiers do
It keeps your skin safe from the rain but also stops your thighs from chaffing on long walks(you also rub it into the crack of your buttocks)
May I also reccomend Miller Harris perfumes
im happy with my hadalabo thx!
Hyaluronic Acid is so good for your skin! I’ve always been tempted to try out hada labo’s products!!
nao u can!! 😈
I like pic #16 😈 Less is more!
I just saw the products last week and was thinking to wait for reviews first and voila~!
but shed me some light, lotion and milk, which one is ‘the moisturiser’.
lotion = toner, milk = moisturiser?
use both for better results, or either 1 (maybe one for oily face, one for normal/dry skin)?
Hi Cheesie, can I know e brand of e white watch u were wearing? It’s very beautiful! Thanks!
nice and red.. they should have the product released earlier man. cny ahahahah!!

I don’t know if this brand is available in the US but I’m sure it’s sold online somewhere! Also want to know if routine is the same for oily/dry skin?

Cheesy what contact lens are you using in the last picture? #17. SOO GORGEOUS <3
Im using SKII now and it’s super awesome to! But the price tag is ridiculous. 🙁 Might try this instead. Thanks for the super awesome review!

I think you resemble Kourtney Kardashian in pic #2! Cuteness!!
Wow the product launch looks like so much fun!! I wonder if there will ever be one in my tiny old town >.<
Btw your contacts in the last photo look amazing! Which one is it?
ちょっとCheeserland久しぶり。I’m going to Japan in three weeks. 😀 It will be interesting to see how it has changed. Still need to make it to Malaysia. 😉
Hey cheesie! 🙂 this may sound weird but how tall are you? Around 165??
Fun post with much good advice for the ladies.
Being a gentleman of advanced age, compared to you, I also take care to moisturize.
Sure I have lines, but most are finer than men who never took advantage of any basic skin care.
BTW, Cheesie’s face looks fantastic. Any signs of aging are not seen in any photos.
Then again most women under 30 are likely to have the best skin of their lives.
Cheesis, you are quite the beauty!
You look like Amanda Seyfried wtf!!
how is that possible wtf
Me thinks Cheesis looks nothing like Amanda. Cheesie is prettier.
Dear Ms Cheesie,
I would like to know do these products suitable for people who have serious skin problem
as in they have pimples and blackheads…
