When I go to a country and buried myself in the cornucopia of products in their drugstore aisle examining every ingredient on the list to find the next best thing, something bound to happen. On my trip to Kuala lumpur mid last year I found the Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion by chance. Again, end of last year, Kuala Lumpur unearthed something special for me: AM PM BHA Serum!

So when I write and discuss something, I expect people to take it with a grain of salt and to make an informed decision by enriching themselves with information from various sources before they actually make a decision. Don’t worry the actual post itself is not that lengthy.
