Annyeong Sweeties How are you today? I feel so good today because I'm going to share something good and useful to all of you. I think most of you already know that I'm probably one of the biggest beauty junkies here. You know how much I love about Japan and their cosmetic products but at the same time I also curious about how to get a dewy and healthy looking skin. When I think about dewy looking skin, it always refer to the Korean skincare products. Why? Because Koreans are quite famous with those dewy and youthful looking skin.

So this is the reason why I wanted to try this new range of Yehwadam products so badly. I believe it's good to own a dewy skin by applying the correct skincare product rather than putting lots of makeup just to cover your dull and unhealthy skin. Am I right?

I tried two of this product from the same range for more than a week and I'm satisfied with the after-use skin. This is the reason why it takes extra time for me to review and conclude everything for you guys on my blog. If you really into those Korean looking skin then don't missed this review. Are you ready for this?? Let's get started!

The Yehwadam Revitalizing Serum & Snow Lotus Brightening Pearl Capsule Cream

Here's the little secret to achieve a soft and lustrous + dewy skin. The Yehwadam revitalising serum and the super famous snow lotus brightening pearl capsule cream from The Face Shop!


#What is Yehwadam? |
Here is the meaning of Yehwadam in Korean: 
  • Yeh (Herbs & Plants) 
  • Wa (Flower) 
  • Dam (Story) 
All of this representative the Korean traditional herb line that can benefit our skin from inside out and it also delivers the essense of Korean traditional beauty regimen uses 3 kinds of natural ingredients which is herbs, plants and flowers. Interesting right!! Also, it is using natural ingredients that formulated with Korean traditional herbs and flowers extracts found in Korea’s cleanest and pristines areas such as Ginseng from Gyeongbuk Province, Safflower from Sancheong Jirisan mountain and Goji Berry from Chungnam Province. 


Snow Lotus Brightening Pearl Capsule Cream |
Big thanks to this snow lotus brightening pearl capsule cream that instantly brighten my skin to achieve those Korean looking skin. This is the one that recommended by me! I tried the ginseng one before but this one is more on brightening effect. So if you prefer something that can instantly brighten your skin then this might be your favourite too.

This cream has an instant brightening tone-up effect because it contains the glowing white pearls and at the same time it's an anti-wrinkle product as well. Love its special double care effects with real pearl-like capsules that deliver skin brightening in just few seconds.

Other than the tone-up effects, it also has the oriental herbal essence that hydrates the skin as well as keep our skin moisture all day long with a lovely peach scent. I guess the scent reminds me of my favourite drink that I tried few days ago. Hehe!

Can you imagine how amazing it is!! Thumbs up for the tone-up pearls and it absorb into the skin smoothly and easily. The only thing is just this product require you to massage a little bit before it absorb into our skin. 

 The magic pearl that help to tone-up your skin!

One thing I love about this product is I can easily blend it with any of my makeup product (Just take 1-2 pearl and mix it with your foundation) or just simply add into your daily skincare product. 

Else you can apply it after your normal skin care product! There are multi-ways to use it. Nice right?!!


Yehwadam Revitalizing Serum |
So this is the one of the star product that catch everyone's eye! I noticed this from their Korean ambassador and when I get it I was like OMG!! The packaging itself is so pretty and look super luxury.

 So pretty!

For extra youthful, dewy and fresh looking skin, let me introduce this Yehwadam Revitalizing Serum that help to firm up your skin and provides you a healthy and vibrant skin finish. At the same time improve your skin complexion day by day with a anti-aging effect that suitable for people who is same age like me (20-30 age group).

For people who love to achieve glowing and good radiance skin you can try the whole range of Yehwadam product because it has high nutrition concentrate helps to revitalize and re-energize skin. There are 3 main ingredients that I would love to share with all of you:-

1. Korean Ginseng (skin revitalization)
2. Safflower (improve skin tone and complexion)
3. Goji Berry (helps to control skin cell aging to create natural glow)

Love its glue alike texture! It's so light and can be used on daily basis. I use it both morning and night after my cleanser.   

Although it's glue alike texture but it really leaves a smooth residue without feeling sticky. Did i mention that it also contain 2 extra ingredients: Lotus Flower Extract (skin soothing effect) & Honeysuckle Flower Extract (removes puffy and red areas on the face).  

Unlike other herbal line, Yehwadam is more on a light floral scent and I think it's more suitable for the younger age like me. So relaxing and refreshing!  
Yehwadam Revitalizing range consist of: Toner, serum, cream, eye cream & serum

I think for the best after-use experience, it's best to use the serum with its full range of Yehwadam product. So I guess it's the end of this product review. Hope this can help you to achieve a nice radiance and dewy Korean looking skin. If you ever tried other product in the range please let me know how was it~ Maybe I should get the whole range next time I visit to The Face Shop!! Hehe That's all for today. Love, xoxo.

【BEAUTY】Review: Look Dewy with The Face Shop Yehwadam Revitalizing Serum & Brightening Pearl Capsule Cream

February 24, 2017

Hello Sweethearts is me again and today I'm going to blog about some of my winter outfits ideas. Basically here's what I wore during my Gifu Trip in Japan few days ago and I still can't believe I'm back in KL now. lol So, for those who plan to visit to Japan this coming week I guess this is still useful for you and for those who plan for you sakura trip in coming March & April, this can be useful as well except you can wear less inner heat tech or without gloves / winter scarfs.


#ChanwonTips |
Here's some tips before I start with my winter outfits ideas & OOTD details. I received lots of questions about how I keep myself warm or how can I wear so less during winter. Actually I wear quite thick just how I style it was diff. Here's what you need to survive and live happily when it's under -8 degree. (Mostly morning & night is cooler then the whole afternoon is between -1 ~ 3 degree Celsius) 

#1 Go get yourself some extra warm heat tech top. I got mine from @uniqlo and I bought the extra heat tech top & the turtle neck one in Japan. Depend on you but I normally wear 3 heat tech top as my inner top lol. Also my leggings is from uniqlo too. It's legging pants which are heat tech as well lol

#2 Remember to bring gloves because this is the most important thing to wear during the winter so you can keep yourself warm and play with your phone (remember buy those glove can touch screen one) Without glove, your hand will be really pain and sometime if it can be so pain until you can't press your phone and camera.

#3 Thick & fluffy scarf + jacket. No joke this is an extra coverage for your body. Better to get a jacket that will keep you warm. Or if you dont want to buy new jacket then you can layer your outfit to keep you warm.

#4 Purchase some hot pads I got mine from Japan convenient store and just placed it on your pocket so when your hand is really cold you can just put your hand into your jacket's pocket.

#5 No heel pls! Wear something that cover your leg & able to walk on the snow! Boots with socks so you can easily walking on the snow or light weight sport shoe. Remember to bring extra socks because during winter time when you walk around the road or if it's snowing, your sock will become wet and smelly.

#6 Wear a hoodie jacket / hat so when it's heavy snow or wind, you can use it to cover your head + your hair won't get wet easily.

So normally to keep myself warm, I'm wearing 2-3 layers of heat tech top & 2 layers bottom (heat tech leggings and normal pants) with high boots together with hoodie jacket + glove + scarf. To be honest, Winter here in Japan is not really scary unless the temperature is negative and strong / heavy wind! Hope this is useful for you and let me show you some of my Winter OOTD that I wore during my previous trip.


#OOTD (1): Denim x Culottes |
Since I'm in Japan, my first look must be inspired by the Japanese style and match the old village town in Hida, Gifu Prefecture. So I decided to add on some accessories like beret and scarf. The whole look match this place so much and I love how it turns out to be so lovely and cozy. It's so warm although it's just a denim outer but my 2 layer heat tech top were enough for my body.

#OOTD (2): Red riding hood x Blue |
This is also one of the top-rating outfit because most of you commented this on my instagram's photo. So I guess you guys can combine both of the dark wine red / maroon color with a navy blue outfit. These two color look really pretty and eye catching when it's together. Especially when you are going to take lots photo with the white & pure snow. Really stand out from others. Am I right?

It's so hard to get a maroon color scarf!! But look...I found it @Uniqlo Malaysia and it's just RM79! Almost cry when I found it because I was searching it for quite some time but still can't get something that is thick and cozy enough to keep me warm in winter and this the uniqlo one is 2 way scarf. You can use it as a scarf or a body blanket to cover the top part of your body too.

 Love this so much!! OMG OMG

#OOTD (3): Neutral Pink Lover |
Pastel is one of my favourite color so this time i decided to brought the pink long jacket that I bought from Korea last year. I named this outfit as Neutral pink lover because the pink is really soft , pinkish and lovely to pair it with the zara scarf that I bought in Malaysia.

Since my hair is really thin and flat during the next morning because of the snow. I decided to tie half of it up into a mini bun. Another Japanese girl wannabe hairstyle tips!  At first I thought this zara scarf is just so so but end up it really match it well with most of my outfit and thicker than the Uniqlo one. If you not sure what color to get for your scarf to match with your outfit...most probably it's safe to go for white , grey or light color.


#OOTD (4): Back to school look |
This is another navy blue jacket that I bought in Japan. Look alike like a school uniform jacket hahaha! So I called it as back to school look lol. Since I spent the last few days in Tokyo area (not too cold) I decided to keep my scarf back to my luggage and wear only one layer of heat tech + top and jacket only. 

I love longer jacket because it makes the whole outfit look more chio. If short jacket like this I normally just wear a leggings or jeans to match it.


#OOTD (5): Boyfriend look x White denim |
Lazy to put on makeup during the last day of your trip? Then go with something easy and bigger size. I bought this jacket from taiwan ShiDa night market. It's damn cheap!! Just RM60 only omg!! Since it's the last day or my trip I didn't have much time to put on make up and remove it before my flight. So, I just wear something that has bigger size like this boy friend white denim. 

Still so cold in the morning so I just randomly put on the scarf and after that I just put it back into my luggage before my flight. So here's some of the #OOTDchanwon photos that I took during my Gifu , Japan trip. Thanks for your time! Enjoy reading~ That's all for today. Love, xoxo.

#OOTD: Winter Outfits Ideas | Winter OOTD in Japan

February 23, 2017

Hello Sweeties! Since it's almost the beginning of Sakura blossom (Hanami) season in Japan, I guess it's time to blog about some nice spot for you to plan or include in your Japan's travel itinerary. I added this to my previous To-do things & Must go places in Tokyo (click here). So, if you interested to take 1 day off from the busy city Tokyo to visit Mt.Fuji, then keep this information nicely or note/ write it down on your itinerary plan.

Lake Kawaguchiko (河口湖) is really easy to access with train and direct bus connected to Tokyo. The view and scenery was super duper breathtaking during the sakura blossom season and the autumn colors around the first half of November. It's unforgettable and I'm so lucky because the weather was super duper good during the time we visited to Lake Kawaguchiko. So remember to check the weather before planning your one day trip from Tokyo to Lake Kawaguchiko because if the weather is bad then you can't really spot the Mt.Fuji from here. Also, when it's too much of clouds Mt.Fuji might not be visible too.

It's also known as one of the Fuji five lakes that lie at the foot of Mt. Fuji. The reason why I picked Lake Kawaguchiko was because it has various seasonal activities, including onsen hot springs, events, and hiking, throughout the year. It's one of the best place to see Mt.Fuji! So if you ask for my recommendation then this is definitely my answers! 


How to go / access |
It's super duper easy to come here. You can come here by train or direct bus to Kawaguchiko Station. It's about 10 minutes by foot from the station only. Just use google map app to check the location and the amount of time taken to be here. Should be around 2 hours++ but less than 3 hours from Shinjuku or other Tokyo area. Also, if you travel with a group of friends or family you can think of renting a private car to enjoy the whole day at this amazing place.

#ChanwonTipsClick here or the link above to know more detail about the time table and area of the direct bus & other transportation method.


So back to the topic here's some of the photo I took during my visit to Lake Kawagushiko:- 

 Look at this!! The Mt.Fuji was super duper clear!

 So pretty and peaceful! love the combination of pink sakura + blue sky!

 I guess the best time to be here is during spring and autumn season. Imagine the color changing during each diff season here!!! It must be so beautiful.

We just walk around , enjoy the breathtaking view for 1-2 hours then we realise the clouds block the view of Mt.Fuji. So remember to come earlier and check the weather report or click at the link here to know more information about the weather and new activities around the lake.

 An ice cream a day!

 All of us!!


 So many photo-worthy spot! HAHAHAAH

We spent all of our afternoon here and took our lunch around the lake too. Our favourite soba of course :p So if you are still planning for your trip remember to include this in your itinerary and hope this is useful for you. Enjoy and have a nice trip <3
