    [Review] Kracie – Hadabisei Clear Lotion

    Ever since I went to Niu er talk last year and get to know something call Clear Lotion and this is when I started to love and rely on it. I have been using that clear lotion since then and that’s the only item I cannot live without. I would admit that initially when I saw this clear lotion, I do have some negative though on this product. I feel it is a similar item from Kose which too have a clear lotion which has the same function too.

    ● Sooth your skin from UV and dry skin caused by accumulation of dead skin.
    ● Contains softening ingredient: W fruit acid – Includes Lemon extract, grapefruit extract that can bring radiant to your skin.
    ● Contains Moisturising ingredient: Glucosamine – excellent moisturising effect that smoothen out skin and cleanse your pores.
    ● Contains Hydrating ingredient: Green Tea Essence – prevent skin from stickiness and make your makeup last longer.
    ● Mildly forumlated with No fragrance, no color, no oil, no alcohol for sensitive skin

    Where and How Much?
    It can be found in most Guardian Store. (I have seen it at Northpoint, NEX and Paragoon) and the retail price for this product is S$23.90.

    My Review
    When I first used it, I was surprised as it is nothing like the Kose Clear lotion. It feel much gentler and very much like a light texture lotion. The best part is it can also exfoliate my skin gently. I do not see my skin become one shade lighter but my skin do feel brighter after I use it. At times when I am lazy, I do use this lotion as a toner too. I can lightly hydrate my skin without feeling sticky. It also leave my skin smooth after application and I love it. However, after the clear lotion, there is still a need to apply moisturizer. As for my pores, I find it clean and I do not need to use exfoliating gel like twice a week. I guess throughly exfoliating can be done every once in 2 weeks.

    I added this picture to show the dirt from my skin daily.

    However, I do not like their bottle. I mis-pressed it a few times and I would really hope that there is some cap over the pump to prevent possible accident. In addition, since it is mild I sometimes feel that my dirty skin is not totally cleaned. I guess it must be due to my reliance to the alcohol in the Kose Clear lotion.

    I did a review video for the clear lotion too as I did not find anything at youtube while doing some research. Please forgive me for my poor English.

    [NEW] Kracie 肌美精 (Hadabisei) Skincare Range

    Goosh!~ I am late for this post. I am supposed to post it latest by yesterday. I am quite fed up with my work so I went for a short getaway at JB. I sort of gotten too tired after I come back that I fall asleep after bathing with my wet hair…

    Honestly, when I was asked to review on this product, I went to google about this brand or any review on Hadabisei and there is almost not much info. Hence, I wondered how many people actually know this brand. I then decide to post a photo on my blog and facebook. One of my friends, Sheena actually guess it right. I am actually surprise to someone know this brand.

    This is the first time I got an invite to review item. I know previously I also used Vichy for a month but it was for a contest last time. Eternity gave me a full size to try on for a month and write true review on the product. I actually have already tried it when I am blogging this and I would say they are better than I expected it to be. So do stay tune to my blog for more updates on this product~

    Kracie is actually from Kanebo previously. In Japan, they actually manufacture a lot of products from hair product to food and also to drug store product. In Singapore, you can see Ichikami Hair Products, Epilat Hair Removal products and of course Hadabisei. (I remember seeing Navie few months back)

    Kracie Hadabisei Clear Lotion and White lotion with Free cotton

    Hadabisei Clear lotion – Gently remove dead skin from your skin.

    Hadabisei White lotion – Enhance the brightness of your skin after usage.


    The clear lotion (on the left) comes with a pump and the white lotion (on the right) has a opening for pouring.
    Something I would like to really appreciate is the free cotton pads. They are not those cheap cotton pad as they comes with 2 surface and the rough that can be used to exfoliate your skin. This will work perfect with the clear lotion. I am a believer of buying good cotton pad. Really special thanks to them~

    I will be blogging clear lotion this coming Saturday and the white lotion will be the next Saturday. For the last week, I will be doing a comparison on my skin before and after the usage.

    [Review] Cyber Colors – Eco Bb Aqua Balm with Spf30 Pa++ (Natural)

    I actually got this sample from The Sample Store since January 2011. I was excited to try since this sample given is in full size initially. However, after taking some shots with my camera, I decide to procrastinate on the review on this BB cream. The reason is because the shade looks kinda of dark. I am not not fair looking lady but even for me I feel it is dark. I got the Natural Shade which is the darker shade.

    This BB cream come with only 2 shades, Natural and Ivory. I redeem the natural shade as I strongly believe I do not belong the the fair group. I also find the 2 shade seems a bit little shades to offer. However, on the other hand, I suddenly remembered that this is a BB cream. It is not supposed to have shade in the first place… 😛

    The packaging. I quite like their “Cyber Colors” Silver prints on the box. It is reflective too.

    In case u wonder if they are “clearing” stock. Nope! The expiry date is up to June 2013

    Usage Direction and Ingredient list @ the back of the box.

    It comes with a free sponge for application. However, I did not use the sponge during the review. I use my ELF Foundation brush for the application.

    I wonder why is the sticker not stick properly. 🙂

    It comes with a mirror too. See the shade is dark right?

    For those who can’t see from the previous photo. This is the shade that scares me off.


    My face without any form of foundation. I am sorry I look very in a shock. I know my face looks kinda of dark and dull.


    My favourite way to compare and see what this BB cream do to me. To my surprise it doesn’t look dark on my skin. It looks even lighter than my original skintone.


    This is me with only BB cream on my face. I love the effect, it looks like I have flawless.

    Full Description
    Cyber Colors ECO BB Aqua Balm SPF 30 PA++ (RRP: $29.90) moisturizes and brightens your skin with eco marrubium and deep sea minerals. The velvety, closely adhesive, fine and delicate balm is both a make-up and a skincare product. While hydrating and moisturizing the skin, it provides excellent concealing effect. By applying a thin layer you can conceal blemishes. It evens skin tone and leaves dull complexion brightened again.

    Eco marrubium is an anti-oxidizing and anti-inflammatory ingredient. Precious deep sea minerals give concealing, anti-aging, whitening, and clarifying and detoxifying effects, and supplement nutrients.

    1. Take an appropriate amount by using a puff to glide across balm.
    2. Apply evenly onto skin.
    3. Finish with your regular powder for more coverage.

    Where To Buy
    Sasa outlets

    My Review
    I did not expect that I will love this BB cream. I have been using BB cream even before it was launched in Singapore. I bought BRTC Jasmine BB cream from Korea Gmarket. I was the spree organiser then and one of my all time spree-er introduce me. From then on, I love it… I was quite fair at that point of time when I was schooling. I am currently work field base hence I got a tan skintone. I do not hate it but it makes most BB cream too fair for me. I have been searching BB cream since then and the only one that I can match my skintone is the skin79 one. In terms of shade, this BB cream makes me very satisfied and pleased with the result.

    I applied the BB cream with brushes instead of sponge as I feel that sponge will take up more BB cream needed for usage and the BB cream will finish faster this way. I would say the first application was quite alright. I do not feel oily and it is easy to apply too. It does feel a bit sticky initially but after some blending with finger, the sticky feeling will be gone. In terms of coverage, I would say it does medium coverage. It can cover redness in my skin but it doesn’t cover black eye bags. Somehow I feel it enhance my skin’s natural glow. My skin looks brighter but not shimmery with oil kind of brightness.

    The only sad thing was this BB cream doesn’t come with oil control. My oily combination skin become shinny after 2 hours and I have to blot off the excess oil.

    Overall, I would still recommend this product ladies my normal tan skin.
