Hermo Malaysia 612 Sales: How I spent a lot unknowingly


Hermo 612 4th Anniversary, you are invited! That's the special invitation card I got for being a Platinum Member.

At some point, I realize that I never actually write about my experience shopping at Hermo. Not once! And that is odd for me since my first online beauty haul was from Hermo. How could I not be sharing about them?

And then this 4th anniversary sales thing kicked in, which was a perfect timing to remind me to do this now or never haul review finally on Hermo! Let's get started.

So what is Hermo? Basically, Hermo is a cosmetic and personal care online shopping retailer based in Johor. They provide a buy 2 free shipping service to local Malaysians and is also shipping to Singapore. They are known for next day delivery, responsive customer service, buy 2 free shipping rule and wide selection. They are probably the number 1 Asian cosmetic online retailer in Malaysia I would say! Now even more local brands are joining their site.

woah, everything packed in nice bubble wraps

Review: Hada Labo Air Aqua UV Day Emulsion SPF50/PA+++


If you are someone with sensitive and normal-to-dry skin, yet needs light-weighted, wide spectrum sun protection, then this will be the perfect candidate for you.

The Air Aqua UV line was released when Hada Labo upgraded their formula and varied their products according to skin types. So this one also came out with a moist version for drier skin and a fresh one for oilier skin. I have normal skin on the drier site so I chose this, but I think the fresh one will serve me well as well.

Perfect x Simple: Overview and Ingredients Analysis of 16 Hada Labo products I used


Actually, I have been thinking of writing this overview for quite some time already. But since I’d done a few comparison reviews on the brand, I thought I might as well devoted my time onto some other brands or products.

Now I think it is finally the time for me to gather all thoughts and information I have on 18 Hada Labo products I’d tried in the past 5 years (2011-2015). This overview will include general information, ingredients analysis and my personal opinions on each and every Hada Labo products I’d used in the past.

Hope you like it!

My skin condition:
Normal with oily nose areas and dry forehead. Prone to sun spots and have genetic freckles. Fair to medium complexion.

My environment:

2011-2013 – cold and dry autumn-winter weather, clean air and water
2013-2015 – hot and humid summer-round season, polluted air

About Hada Labo



Hada Labo holds the philosophy of “perfect x simple” ingredients and formulations to bring the best results to skin. “Pure”, “simple” and “baby” are words I will use to describe Hada Labo. This brand eliminates unnecessary additives, colourant, fragrance and mineral oil that will cause burden to the skin. Even the packaging is very simple and practical. It is mostly odorless, except for its arbutin whitening line with some fragrance oil added inside. It is not paraben-free, but do keep in mind that paraben actually exists naturally and is not necessary evil or as bad as many might have thought. Paraben is also used in popular skincare brands like Kiehl’s and Cetaphil.

Review: Lirikos Marine Triple Treatment


Actually, I don't really know much about Lirikos. There hasn't been a lot of information on it. Not a lot of people are talking about it as well. I learned about its existence through a Korean vlogger Liah Too, and then came across a Chinese-speaking vlogger raving about Lirikos product as the Korean's LaMer. So, I was really intrigued and ended up buying this Marine Triple Treatment.


Review: Belif Numero 10 Essence


Everyone who follows my blog knows that I love Belif products, especially their Aqua Bomb. It is one of the best moisturizers I've ever used, and I am willing to pay that amount of money for all the refreshing, cooling and healing sensations I got from that little jar of fountain.

Today, I'm gonna be sharing another Belif products that I kinda enjoy, although not to the point of becoming my holygrail yet - the Belif Numero 10 Essence.

Review: A.H.C Private Real Eye Cream for Face (Season 3)


I decided to write about this eye cream first, before my tonnes other reviews because... honestly I don't really find a lot of comprehensive reviews on this particular product. There was a lot of marketing gimmicks on this. A lot of people are raving about how expensive this was in Korea, and how great the brand itself actually is. I am not saying that any of those claims are untrue, because I don't really get to the ground and interview Koreans right? So, today's review is going to be about sharing my honest 2 cents with this popular eye product.

Review: It's Skin Prestige Serum D'escargot (and the eye serum)


I'd learned through failures and frustration that good deals don't just come free. This It's Skin Prestige Serum definitely adds to that count. When I first bought it, I thought oh wow what a bargain, much cheaper than the cream with an eye serum attached. I even wanted to forgo the cream to get this, which luckily I didn't. There must a reason why this serum is way cheaper than the cream and still has an eye serum that comes with it. And there is.

Review: It's Skin Prestige Creme D'escargot


Today I'm going to talk about this highly-requested, long overdue snail cream from It's Skin. Actually, I don't know why it took me so long to write this review. I actually drafted it some time earlier but hadn't got the chance to refine and edit my draft. I'd been using the product for over a year or so now, and its trial kit much earlier. I would say that this was one of the early time product I used and would still continue to use now.

Comparison Review: Goodal Phytorain Murumuru Seed Hydra Serum vs. Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum


Today's review is about comparing these two cute little round bottle serum from Innisfree and Goodal. I think all of us are familiar with Innisfree serum, or the "3-seconds green bottole" where you use within 3 seconds after cleansing your face. This is the best-selling item in Innisfree, and has been raved and reviewed by tonnes of bloggers and vloggers. The lesser known one here is the Goodal Phytorain Murumuru Hydra Serum.

Review: Mamonde Rose Water Bubble Cleansing Foam


I just finished this cleansing foam yesterday so I thought of sharing it with you guys before I just threw it asides in my old cabinet and totally forgot about reviewing it until months and months later.

Review: Innisfree Whitening Pore Eye Cream


Today we're gonna talk about this best-selling eye cream I got from Innisfree Sunway Pyramid. Actually I was looking for the Eco Science Eye Cream, which was an award-winning eye cream in 2013. However, the Store Advisor there recommended me this instead, claiming that it has more functions in it like whitening, moisturizing, nourishing, and fine lines reducing (wrinkles care). This is also labelled their best-selling items in store. Finally, I'm convinced and brought this home. Let's see what it does to my eyes area!
