Also infused with Hyaluronic Acid, this special formulation provides the skin with intense hydration that plumps up and brightens the skin, resulting in healthier looking skin.

If you are looking for even, trasnlucent complexion that is glowy, well hydrated and reduced visible dark spots then you should use this Hada Labo Premium Whitening range consistently! Over time, your skin cells are healthier and more plumped and light reflects off them more evenly. This improved range is also fragrance-free, colorants-free, alcohol-free, and does not contain mineral oil and free animal derivatives - which make it suitable for all skin types.

MY Review:

After 3 weeks of almost consistent usage of  the Premium Whitening Lotion (Rich) and Premium Whitening Water Gel I love the result that I am seeing. I am considering to get the serum and mask too if I have more free time as I want to see less visible dark spots. So far I see the overall brightening and hydration of my skin. So when using this I tried including oils at night but I think it makes the texture not too great ( I don't know how to describe it. Its like some part of my face dried down "plastic-y" --- so I don't use oils with it) so I include water-based serums ; no oils so the dried down texture will be normal.

Premium Whitening Lotion (Rich)  /  RM69  /  170ml

Function:
Triple Brightening formula (of Niacinamideα-Arbutin, and Vitamin C) - Reawakens dull skin and evens out skin tone.
2 types of Hyaluronic Acid - Strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier and deeply hydrates skin.
Seaweed Extract - Effective anti-oxidant that protects the skin from damage while keeping it healthy.

Scent & Texture:
No scent. Pours out in rich, milky texture.

Thoughts:
I am surprised that it dries down matte, and once all absorbed is not sticky. Skin feels hydrated too. It is definitely suitable for dry and sensitive skin as I am these ^^ After 3 weeks of almost consistent usage with the Water Gel, my skin is definitely more luminous and supple. Dark spot still need more time to fade. May need to add other steps like their serum and mask for the dark spots to fade faster.

Premium Whitening Water Gel  /  RM73.20  /  50g

Function:
Triple Brightening formula (of Niacinamideα-Arbutin, and Vitamin C) - Reawakens dull skin and evens out skin tone.
3D moisturising Hyaluronic Acid - forms a layer of moisture on the skin acts as a retention barrier to keep it hydrated.
Botanical Extracts - Control excess sebum & refine pores.

Scent & Texture:
No scent. Ultra lightweight milky gel texture. Skin feels very breathable.

Thoughts:
It is indeed ultra light like its name. Love that it dries down abit dewy. Once all absorbed, it is not sticky at all while leaving my skin hydrated. It is definitely suitable for dry and sensitive skin as I am these ^^ After 3 weeks of almost consistent usage pairing with the rich toner, my skin is definitely more luminous and supple. Dark spot still need more time to fade. May need to add other steps like their serum and mask for the dark spots to fade faster.

(Review) New FABER-CASTELL’S SMOOTHEST GEL PEN – FAST GEL Z TAKES WRITING EXPERIENCE TO NEW PEAKS

In engineering the Fast Gel Z, Faber-Castell developed a new and innovative precision tip that is paired with ultra low viscosity ink that results in an unrivalled smooth writing performance. This innovative combination results in the Fast Gel Z pen delivering the smoothest writing performance compared to the many pens in the market.

"Faber-Castell always strives to produce innovative products that cater to the demands and needs of consumers.
