HABA Squa Facial Foam review

Anyone heard of Haba skincare or tried before their skincare, health and hair care products?
HABA is the acronym for "Health Aid Beauty Aid" which means assisting health and beauty. HABA products do not contain any ingredients such as paraben, flavors, mineral oil, chemically synthesized tar colorings, or petrochemical surfactants that may become a burden to the skin or cause an allergic reaction.

Haba first shop is located at Ngee Ann City #B2-13A. Actually I have noticed Haba shop quite long time ago but this is the first time I am trying Haba skincare product and I have chosen its popular Haba Squa Facial Foam as my first step of daily skincare regime.

First of all, let us know more about Haba Squa Facial Foam:

SQUA FACIAL FOAM(100g) - smooth, rich lather of this foaming face wash effectively removes dead skin cells, excessive oils and impurities. Contains Squalane and Silk Powder to leave skin feeling moisturized and refreshed.
Anyone know what is Squalane and Silk Powder? How does it helps to improve our skin??

Squalane is a natural moisturizer inherent to human body. The secretion of it by the body decreases with age and excessive washing. HABA has developed Squalane refined to the maximum of 99.9% purity.

Silk Powder: Powdered fiber obtained from silkworm cocoons. It is rich in proteins such as sericin and fibroin, which enhances the smoothness of skin.
Directions: Wet the face, and take approx. 5-cent coin size of Squa Facial Foam to the palm of the hand. Add a small amount of water and lather thoroughly. Alternatively you can use a foaming net which quickly and easily creates a rich lather with any of HABA's facial washes.^_^
After adding some water, I use my bare hands to lather HABA Squa facial foam which is firm and fine-textured, enough to cover my entire face.

To start off my daily skincare regime, cleansing is the first step and plays an important role =) HABA Squa Facial Foam not only it gently cleanse and it also polish away accumulated dirt, impurities thoroughly without stripping off skin's natural moisture. I love how my skin feels clean, fresh and moisturised after one use. Is definitely a good cleanser to use daily after a long, tiring day at work! Will recommend HABA Squa Facial foam to my all friends and relatives ^_^

HABA Squa Facial Foam is selling at $41.00 at HABA shops (please find the location here)

Lippy Girl review

Many people might be the first time hearing Lippy Girl cosmetics. Me too! when I heard about this brand from my friend. To me, it is always good to know new brands and find the products that suit you the most as everyone has different needs!

Lippy Girl products are naturally Organic, vegetarian, animal friendly for a gorgeously mesmerizing You. 100% Paraben Free.

LippyGirl Lipsticks and accessories are 100% Bee-Free and Vegan ♥♥♥ 100% Gluten Free.

Lippy Girl Makeup was founded by Darcey Diehl.  Darcey is working mother from Vancouver BC.  After her 1st pregnancy, Darcey began to evaluate the foods she consumed, becoming a think-a-tarian and watching carefully what she put in her body.  During her second pregnancy Darcey extended this to what she put on her body, and began to investigate the cosmetic products available to her.  Frustrated with the limited availability of products which are organic, animal friendly and earth friendly, Darcey launched Lippy Cosmetics

I have received 4 Lippy Girl products for my review:
  • 3 Vegocentric Organic Vegan Lipsticks
  • 1 Extra Virgin Lip Gloss
Range of Vegocentric Organic Vegan Lipsticks colours:

This premium line of amazing lipsticks are made with organic and wildcrafted, natural oils and waxes and only natural mineral pigments.  100% vegan, bee-free, gluten free and chemical free!  These lippies are made with certified organic Castor Seed Oil, Jojoba seed oil, Carnauba Wax, and Shea Butter for the smoothest, creamiest finish, and super pigmented with natural minerals. Vegocentrics are moisturing and long lasting, and will not bleed!

Plus, Vegocentric Lippies come in a bigger and better size of 5grams, and 100% recyclable aluminum tubes!

Vegocentric lipsticks are simply the best vegan lipsticks available with no bees products or polybutene/petroleum. 
The 3 Vegocentric Organic Vegan Lipsticks I have chosen:
Trying them on:
Guess which one is my favourite? Or do you know which one are suitable for what kind of occasion?

Personally my favourite Lippy Girl Vegocentric Organic Vegan Lipstick is Diggity-Yam, the creamy peachy colour lipstick give a natural rosy look and it does not dry my lips. It is perfect for everyday usage and helps to enhance & brighten up my smile ^_^ I used it before going to work/ girls weekend day out!
I love these girly shades Lippy Girl lipsticks.
Coral Me create bold and dramatic look, suitable for attending a night date/clubbing while Ski Bunny - soft beige pink colour gives your lips a natural moisturised look =) suitable for daily usage too!
When using Extra Virgin Lip Gloss, it ultra-moisturising smooth gel helps to soften & condition and give a glow to my dry chapped lips. Now they look plump and kissable. Thanks Lippy Girl!
