QUENCH YOUR SKIN'S THIRST WITH HADA LABO WHITENING WATER GEL RANGE

If your skin feels it needs some hydration boost, why not try out the new Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel? The hydrating power of the Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel provides your skin with 3x Brightening Benefits and intense moisturization, leaving your skin looking visibly bright, radiant and moisturised all day long.  



Infused with multiple intensive brightening ingredients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B3 and Carnosine, the Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel promises you a luminous, fair and translucent skin with natural radiance through 3 of its brightening actions below:

1.    Anti-Redness – The Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel is enhanced with Vitamin C to help rebalance uneven skin, leaving skin perfectly luminous and translucent with natural radiance.

2.    Anti-Dark Spots – The Vitamin B3 contained in the Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel helps boost radiance and at the same time enhance skin fairness.

3.    Anti-Dullness – Carnosine, an anti-aging substance aids in the process of reawakening dull looking skin and improving yellowish skin tone for a more luminous and radiant complexion.  

Formulated using the High Performance Penetrating and Deep Moisturizing (HPP&M) Technology, the Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel is infused with 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which include Large size, Medium size, Super and Nano HA that deeply penetrate into skin layers to hydrate and lock in moisture in the skin. In addition, the specially designed Aqua Oil Volume Matrix Technology - a 3D moisturizing system also helps to form a moisture protecting shield on the skin surface, thus keeping skin perfectly hydrated at all times.

 Its watery effect is light in texture and absorbs quickly into my skin

The Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel gives you an ultralight, watery-feel gel texture that is sure to quench skin in an instant surge, leaving you a “breathable” skin feel. It is pH balanced, free of fragrance and mineral oil.  To obtain a double brightening power effect, use it together with the newly improved Hada Labo Whitening Essence that contains high purity Arbutin to help relief visible redness and reduce visible dark spots, which in turn boosts the results in skin brightening in just 4 weeks.    

For optimum results, use together with the Hada Labo Whitening Essence.




Retails at RM 69.90 for the Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel and RM 74.00 for the Hada Labo Whitening Essence, both products are available at all leading pharmacies in Malaysia starting September 2016.

FOLLOW ME CARES

FOLLOW ME BUY & DONATE CAMPAIGN 2016
RAISE FUNDS FOR RUMAH CARING OLD FOLKS HOME

Follow Me, a brand under Tohtonku Sdn Bhd has launched the Follow Me Buy & Donate Campaign 2016 that is currently ongoing from 20 October 2016 until 30 November 2016 to help raise funds for Rumah Caring Old Folks Home.

 Located in Kajang, Selangor, this non-profit old folks home, caters not only to citizens aged between 50 years to 95 years, but it also shelters wheel chair bound old folks who require special needs and attention.

According to Wendy Yap, Founder of Persatuan Rumah Caring Kajang, the home has been grappling with the rising cost of operations and provisions in the last few years. Apart from the daily basic household needs, nursing service and cost of health supplies are also increasing.

“The average cost of running the home is about RM14,000 a month. We are left feeling helpless at times without financial aid. Therefore, we are really grateful to receive donations from corporate and individual donors,” said founder, Wendy Yap.

Through this campaign, Follow Me hopes to raise funds through the sale of any of its Follow Me products, where with every RM10 spent on Follow Me products, RM1 will be donated to the Follow Me Buy & Donate Campaign fund. The funding will be used to help fund the household expenditure of the Rumah Caring Old Folks Home.


“We are indeed moved by the fact that despite of the funding issues and uncertainties that looms over the shelter; this has never been taken as an excuse to compromise on the love and care the old folks deserve. As a well-established home grown brand in Malaysia, we feel compelled to do our bit to contribute back to the society. I sincerely hope that this campaign would garner support from the public and together we can help raise funds to provide better nursing, health and logistic care to the old folks and disabilities here in Rumah Caring Kajang,” said Jessky Hah, Product Manager of Follow Me.     


The public who would like to support this campaign can head to any Tesco retail outlets in Malaysia to purchase their preferred Follow Me products. Follow Me products ranged from haircare, skincare to body care.

Your support is very much needed for the association to continue serving the community.

Mix, the new snacking haven

I am so excited to share a new place I discovered recently which opened its doors in SS2 in the last few weeks. 
Psst...I didn't even know this shop existed until they open in my neighbourhood! 
It's a snacking haven with snacks from Thailand, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea all in one place! You don't even have to travel to these countries to get your hands on these snacks.  I have been to a few of these kind of shops in Malaysia but I find this place simply awesome because some of the unique snacks are not found in other Japanese or Korean Convenience store. It certainly lives up to the expectations (and their brand name, MIX) with a great MIX of famous snacks from around these countries.
Here's why!
The mother of all Kit Kats! I have been looking all over Malaysia for this! Sake flavoured Kit Kat which is not easily found in most Japanese Snack Convenience stores in Malaysia. I have been to the Japanese snack convenient outlets in Tropicana City Mall, Damen and even Tokyo Street, Pavilion and this was not even sold there. The common ones I have seen are green tea. Talk about being different!
The other highly recommended snack (more like a biscuit) from Japan is this! This is rather famous and tastes great! A must buy and a must try too! Tak payah lah terbang ke Jepun pun boleh rasa sekarang.  Another great product is the Kororo UHA Japanese Gummy Candy. It pops in your mouth and I just love to roll it in my mouth. The common flavours found here is the muscat (green grape) and it's hard to find the Melon flavoured ones in Malaysia. I have been hunting high and low for this brand. Last I saw Family Mart carried this brand but it was all sold out. The promo price of the Muscat variant is unbelievable at less than RM6  a pack! Other places I have seen it sells between RM7-8. A great place to stock up your snacks and at the same time try something new.
I even bought the rose peach candy which i find rather interesting.
I also raided their fridge for some cute looking drinks.
My gf recommended these coffee from Taiwan. Tastes good. Not too sweet.

These are just mineral water but their bottle is so captivating. More interesting drinks from other countries. You may recognise some of these if you travel a lot!
Other interesting product finds come in cute packaging like these.
Fans of Jagabee look no further for you can easily find it here!

Beautiful Bottles. I am mesmerised. Are you?

Special limited edition Hello Kitty tins from Taiwan. I love the way the products are displayed with a little flag indicating product originates from where.

Such a cute packaging for egg biscuits
