For the majority of the day, I admit that I addicted to social media, especially on Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram.
I’d remember the first time my Facebook account was created. My friend helps me by creating one for me using her computer. That’s an exciting moment of my life. I don’t own a computer or laptop. I admit that I hate cyber cafe, so there’s only few times I forced myself to go to cyber cafe just to on my Facebook.
Oftentimes, after school, I’ll go to my friend’s house just to log in to Facebook to check any notifications I got, my friends updated instead of study for improving my gred on the subjects that I weak on it. My parents and her parents felt worry (more to inconvenience) with my actions and told me to control myself and focused on school.
When I’m not going to her house to on my Facebook, I felt myself getting anxiety over it. It made me feel upset and I was so distracted by it that it took time away from my studying. Until now, if any social media is down, I’ll feel like what I felt before, I took a step back and and thought to myself, this is how addicting social media can be.
I enjoy taking pictures. I love meeting new and inspirational people. It’s exciting! Especially for us introverts. Others love do that too. You take your order and when the food arrived, and yeah you know.
But it can take over your mind, especially when you read something distressing written about you. It’s easy to get bogged down by the number of likes you have on a post or how many people commented on something really special that you wrote and decided to share with the world.
Sometimes I thought what if I’m not created my Facebook account at the first place?
Maybe I could focus on my studies and get a better results. Maybe. Just maybe.
I started using skincare product from this famous Japan brand, Hada Labo by bought Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion as my chemical exfoliate.
I bought this lotion on October 2018, exactly, it’s last year but I just made the review for it. This lotion it not a typical lotion as we know because Japanese people call a toner as ‘lotion’ so don’t be confused. Not a regular toner too. It is a chemical exfoliate toner.
First, because I really want to try chemical exfoliate because I’d never used it before and a lot of people out there said chemical exfoliate is better than physical exfoliate. But as you know, chemical exfoliate divided into two, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA). You can refers here what’s this.
My skin type is combination, and I want to have a clear skin by get rid of the dullness, whiteheads, blackheads, acne scars, my uneven skin tone. Not forget about clogged pores. So I got confused which one I should use. I don’t want to use both AHA and BHA because it quite pricey for me 😌.
WHAT’S IT CLAIMS☀Added with Gluconic Acid to gently soften skin leaving skin feeling fresh, smooth and soft.
☀Helps to tighten pores, prevent clogged pores and breakouts.☀Mild exfoliation to polish away dullness and helps brighten and even out skin tone.☀Helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and improves skin elasticity and firmness☀Effectively hydrates and moisturizes skin providing a natural radiant and beautiful matte skin.
☀Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.
☀Free of fragrances, alcohol, colorant and mineral oil.
The 170g Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion comes in a classic and simple transparent plasticsqueezy bottle, so it’s really easy to use, sanitary and very transportable.
TEXTURE / COLOR / SCENT :
This lotion have a texture like a mineral water or maybe a little bit thicker than water. I found it quite sticky when I pour over my hand, but as it was a chemical exfoliate, of course I used it with facial cotton on my face.
As it claims, it free from colorant, so of course it colorless but I think it scent similar to a glue. Totally smell like glue. But I don’t think it will be a problem for me. I don’t know about you, maybe you’ll think it’s quite annoying.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH MILD PEELING LOTION :
Now let’s get to know my experience as a beginner to chemical exfoliate by using this toner.
I started using it once a week, nothing happened to my skin which is made me thinking ‘Oh it’s good’. Then I decided to used twice a week. That is when the nightmarishly come to me.
I’m already go through purging when use it. On my jawline. It not that bad. Typically, I’ll happily squishing my pimples like old times and absolutely got a scars on my face. My mom also asked me why I have a lot of small pimples on my jawline. I just stayed quiet.
Just to let you know that when I started using Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion, my skincare routine is not strong enough so that why I had purging when I use it. That times I only started using sunscreen not even a month, that’s it.
I decided to stop using it for a while to build up my skincare routine. Alhamdulillah everything going good for me. There’s no more annoying small pimples and I guess I can say I love this lotion.
WHAT’S I LIKE ABOUT THIS LOTION :
Make my skin feels smooth and fresh
Not experience any redness, irritation, sunburn or over-exfoliate
Affordable. 170ml for RM60 is not bad at all because it can stand almost 4 or 5 months depends on the usage.
Thank you so much for stopping by. What’s your current chemical exfoliate? Let me know in the comment below.
I know everyone has their own favorite idols, singers, writers, Instagrammers, football players and so on. So do us, bloggers. If you are not even a blogger, you’re still have your own favorite bloggers, we, as a blogger also spend our free time to read any new articles from our favorite blogs too.
Although I’m trying hard to consistently update my blog as much as I can while struggling with writer’s block but then I realized that I seems to have overlooked something important. I felt my blog didn’t have enough content about my favourite products, books or anything in between. I’ve created this new segment, call it ‘Mija’s Pick’ to reprovision for this.
As March 2019 already here, concertedly, I want to share with you my favorite beauty blogs as a starting of the segment.
First of all, I really love this girl. She really knows how to make me stay on her blog reading all of the makeup review (and also skincare review) because you know, how much I suck when it comes to makeup thingies. So, her blog is my lifesaver ❤.
Next *clear throat* I think, no, I SHOULD call her beauty guru because of her blog with a great content she wrote on her blog I know what it is AHA, BHA and all vitamin in the skincare. All those things I have zero knowledge of it. Not forget to mention, she ALWAYS share tips and tricks about skincare and also her skincare routine.
Let’s me be honest, I like this blog content and if I was a teacher and need to give it a mark of the blog design, I’m sure will give it A+++. But now let’s focus on the blog content.
Sabrina really an inspiring person. She has her own brand called Breena Beauty but at same time she’s be able to manage her blog, sharing her reviews and whatnot with her readers.
Eventually, just in case anyone is thinking why I follow and read those blogs although most of them are writing about same category, beauty. Why I’m not read only one or two blogs? Why I need to read more than two blogs about beauty?
First, because for me myself, beauty is awesomeness of subject to read and explore cause it worth it. Plus with my love into reading and to increase my knowledge about skincare, I know I need to read more than enough.
Second, keep in your mind that not all of people passionate about beauty industry. Simply, some of them have a little bit or zero knowledge about it (just like me before) so, we need help from them, beauty bloggers, who have tons of knowledge about hair, makeup, skincare or whatnot.
So, whoever is curious about skincare or need to read a review, as a referral about any products before buy it. Just to get clear whether ‘this one suit on me or not’, I hope this post help you. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram (@mijablur) !
