Review: Hada Labo Air BB Cream

Hello~! I'm back with a new review~ This time it's yet another Hada Labo product. I'm in love with this brand I tell you!

Finding the right foundation or bb cream has always been a problem for me. I had the Revlon's PhotoReady that turned out very orange-y and then another Dr. Young's BB Cream that gives off grey-ish tone that makes me look like the walking dead. I hate shopping for foundation! But still, partly having the curiosity of a beauty blogger, partly desperation to get a flawless look, I decided to give Hada Labo Air BB Cream a try.

And I don't know if it's luck or what, just when I had decided to purchase one, I received one for free!! Thank you, kamisama!

So I've been using it for a weeks now, and here's what I can conclude about this BB Cream: BEST base makeup I ever had!ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ

Tell you why soon~

Hada Labo Air BB Cream
This BB Cream is available at RM55.90 for a 40g tube and available in two shades: Ivory Beige and Natural Beige. I received the one in Ivory Beige, which is somewhat a tone darker than the other.

Here's the swatch ↓

matched so well with my skin tone!

This is what it looks like compare to my Revlon's and Dr Young's.

Dr Young's one totally out. Sure, I picked up the wrong shade last time(there's 2 and I got the lighter one). Still, I wouldn't  back to trying Dr Young's 'cuz I find the BB creams have really grey tone! The Revlon's one appears very similar to the Hada Labo's but I find it has weird orange-y tone...

What I love about the Hada Labo one is how it blends so well with my skin tone after a little bit more dabbing!

But that's not all. This Hada Labo Air BB Cream also prides itself for working on 10-in-1 function including SPF50+PA++~! YAYY to that!

Here are the 10 functions:

From providing a flawless coverage to sun protection to hydrating and even anti-aging properties, this BB cream has it all! Saves you a lot of time from applying all those products separately.

As for the texture, it is really light on the skin and it has super lasting coverage that stays for hours thanks to the Silicone Elastomer Blend formulated into this BB Cream. Also with low irritation and free of fragrance, mineral oil and alcohol.

Alrighty, here's the before(

HadaLabo Air BB Cream Review before&after
So, I find it works really well in covering pores giving an amazing, almost smooth overall. I say almost because it only conceals the small ones better. You can see from the photo above, some of the larger pores aren't well concealed...

For scars, the coverage is somewhat medium too. It does cover up the redness of scars but I have to dab in another layer or two (I'm somewhat considering laser treatment for smoother skin on a long run hahaha)

My conclusion?

I love this Hada Labo Air BB Cream a lot because it does gives a much radiant complexion~! With the amazing 9 other functions to boot, this one's another keeper!

Tourist in my own country: Kuala Lumpur

I think it's been
close toa month since I last blogged, apologize for the unannounced hiatus m(_ _)m

Past weeks has been crazy, to put it simply. So many things have been bogging my mind and occupying most of my time so much that I didn't have the mood to blog. JLPT's just 5-6 weeks to go and I'm trying to cram up as much lessons into my head.

However, while I was away, it seems my readers have not abandoned me and I am very grateful for the supportヽ(;▽;)ノArigatou~!!

The past 2 weeks, I had more time on my hand but I had been occupied with travelling. Mostly I was at the heart of Kuala Lumpur and the places around it for work-related purposes. I usually have some me-time after that and kinda took my time to explore the surroundings. Here's just a part of the places I've been. Photos nao~

Walah~ This is KL Tower ↓

Took a short walk from the spot I took this pic via the walkway heading to Bukit Bintang_one of the biggest shopping hub in KL.

You'll find lots of shopping centres(like 5?) within walking distance from one another and they're tones of amazing restaurants and kopitiams with great stall food around here! Totally a tourist attraction spot.

This photo is taken from in front of Pavillion Mall~

Parkamaya at Fahrenheit88 Mall_the Parkamaya signboards give the place a Tokyo-feely!

I've got to admit I've never really been here much despite having been to Bukit Bintang many times. Found a couple of nice boutiques here that I used to frequent back in Damansara~

The first H&M store in Malaysia which was launched a few months back↓ You can see the monorail at the background, that was where I was heading to.

On the way there's this super unique, oriental-like shop with loads of signboards. Love it~! (It's a restaurant,  btw)

I wanted to stay around and show you more amazing places like around this area but the crazy hot weather started to make me feel unwell I decided to head home and take a rest. I got very low tolerance to heat (@.@'')

Last photo neway. View from inside the monorail leaving the Bukit Bintang station~

Next up will be my long-delayed Hada Labo review post hahaha. Okei, me bad if I've made some of you wait (T__T )

Thank YOU again for reading my blog~!

See you in just a bit~!ヾ(Ov≤)ノ
