Affordable Facial Wash for Sensitive Skin: Hada Labo+



If you suffer from sensitive skin, things can get really tricky with the skincare you choose. There are so many contributing factors to our skin condition - allergies, diet, lifestyle, ingredients-suitability, etc. And finding suitable skincare can be a difficult task, especially when you don’t know what is the underlying factor of your sensitive skin condition.

In my case, I have a periodical sensitive skin. It depends on the environment I’m in. If the weather is hot for more than two weeks, that’s when I start to get some inflammation under my pores. It is so annoying and painful.

End of last year, Gucci brought the beauty line into Malaysia market and hence we have a stand-alone Gucci Beauty in KLCC. More about the store below.
