Shopping in Hong Kong, you are definitely not spoiled for choices. I went into my local drugstore last week to get a face scrub. My goodness, in front of me was a ton of face scrubs, korean brands, Japanese brands, western brands and local brands, etc.

I couldn't quite decide on which one to get but in the end, I picked one based on its price. I went for one by Formula 10.0.6, their one smooth operator pore cleaning face scrub with Zinc, Oat and Pumice.

I've never heard of this brand before and after a little research on the brand, it's originally from Australia, created by a chemist 1933. 

I was just looking for a simple and no fuss face scrub. This is one for you if you are also looking for the same thing.

I like that the "scrub" isn't too huge or rough, but it still manages to exfoliate my skin. It doesn't leave my skin feeling dry afterwards which is also key for my skin, too.

Have you ever come across this brand? What did you try before?

Quick Life Update

Hello World! It's been a good few weeks since I wrote anything here. First thing first, sorry about that!

So, where have we been? We packed all of our belongings, more precisely our lives in London all the way to Hong Kong last week. 

Since Mr Holiday is still developing his career in HK so we have no choice but to follow. Hopefully we are more settled down in the next few years before another big move, who knows!

Since we came back, it's been unpacking and trying to get baby Lear's biological clock reset again, namely the horrible baby jetlag! I can report back that with much help from fellow mommy friends, Lear is back on some form of routine, he's started to sleep through the night in the past 2 nights so I'm hoping he's recovering and learnt day and night again! 

Highlight of the week was Mr Holiday and I brought baby Lear to his first playgroup. It's a fantastic one, mainly attended by the expat community in HK, was glad to hear a few familiar accents! 

Meanwhile we are just taking our times to settle down so when we have done so, normal beauty postings will be resumed!

Have a lovely weekend!
