Sponsored: Hada Labo!

Salam alaikum!

I'm sure its no secret that the most popular steps when it comes to taking care of your skin is to cleanse, tone and moisturise. Personally, I often skip the toner and moisturiser because...guilty as charged, I'm lazy. I get home, remove my make up, cleanse my face, that's all. Off I go to zzzzz hehe. No surprise there that I have quite dry skin which is especially made obvious when I put on powder T.T

Koreans are known to slap on all sorts of essence, moisturizer, masks and eye cream on their faces before going to sleep. Its no wonder they're famously known for their flawless skin. How I wish I'm as hardworking as them when it comes to taking care of my skin. Sigh.

But anyways, for the past week, I've been hardworking ok! I've been putting on the Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion everyday before going to sleep and a teensy bit of their Super Hyaluronic Acid Moist Eye Cream. Truthfully, I loveeee Hada Labo's products ever since I bought my first bottle before leaving for China last year. I knew the weather was going to be crazy cold and my skin would go flaky dry so I applied their Hydrating Milk every single day. The thing about Hada Labo products that I love the most is that a little goes a long way. Also, their products are unscented so I'm not irritated by over flowery or perfume-ish scents.

The new product is an improved version of their previous Hydrating Lotion. It is able to penetrate areas deep deep deep within your skin cos of its "Nano"- sized molecule. Not only that, your skin is able to absorb it better! The clear, watery- like liquid is the same as the previous one though so no changes in the form of the hydrating lotion. I love that it does not leave an oily residue because I'm definitely not a fan of anything that makes my face look oily, no matter how you claim you're moisturising! Haha!

Another product that I was sent is the SHA Moist Eye Cream ($21.90 from Watsons). I generally stay away from all sorts of eye cream because I used to apply it and I realised after some time, milia seeds began to form on my eyelids! Rich eye creams tend to cause milia seeds because its too rich to be absorbed and clogs your sweat ducts. The most irritating thing about milia seeds, there is no way you can get rid of them :( So, to be honest, I was quite skeptical about this product at first.

As you girls know, the skin around our eyes are really sensitive. Rub too much? Wrinkles. Not enough sleep? Eyebags. I also read that the best way to apply eye cream is to use your ring finger because it gives the least amount of pressure as compared to your other fingers (: Not sure how true that is, but you can google it up!

So anyways, this eye cream is very very very light! I'm very careful about how much I use and only apply a tiny pea-sized amount! So far, so good. I check everyday for milia seeds and so far, alhamdulillah, none! However, its still too early to see the improvements it has made but I do hope that with continuous regular usage, the skin around my eye area will be brighter, smoother and well-hydrated (:
