Hazeline Snow Moisturising Cream (雪花糕)

Quick post:

Hazeline Snow Moisturising Cream (雪花糕)<--- Is this the Chinese translation? Omg my Chinese quite cui so don't blame me if I got the 'gao' part wrong.



I think many of you (Singaporeans at least) will have heard or used this before!
It is like some super old beauty product lol. I bet your grandmothers/ mothers would have a container of this on hand for sunburns, mosquito bites, cuts, burns, etc.




After awhile, a white cast will form of your skin, giving a powdery look. I didn't swatch it though. Sorry!

This product is very similar to those 'Snow White' creams Korean brands have been touting about recently. My friend purchased a container (50ml) at 9.90 SGD, mine is a 250ml jar of olden-day goodness, and comes at 3.50 SGD hehehe.

It helps with unsightly acne scars, dry skin, acne, sunburns, mosquito bites, cuts, burns, etc.
I usually use it as a sleeping mask and when I wake up, my skin will not be as oily because the layer of powder absorbs the excess oil. I only have to wash my face with water and I'm set to go!
Sometimes I use this as a foundation layer (make sure you apply in advance and blend well, as it will leave a white cast).

The smell is either something you like very much or hate to the core. I kinda like it, but some people tell me it smells like roses and vintagey old things. Vintage is so in now, right? I don't get why they hate it hahaha.

Unfortunately, you can't get this in Singapore anymore due to panic buying last year. Apparently the company wanted to recall the remaining batches because of some texture complaints (some sod probably left their container out uncovered, I bet) so you can only get the whitening one now.

I got mine from Brunei, and I believe they still sell them in Malaysia too. If all else fails, try drugstore.com/ ebay/ amazon or drive to Johor to get them or something? :)
I'm getting my mum to get me ten containers of this the next time she goes overseas hahaha.

Loves: Refreshing feeling, whitish effect
Hates: For some people, the smell might be an issue. Occasionally irritating as the powder will flake off if you apply a thick layer
Pricing: 3.00-5.00 SGD.... any more than that and you have been scammed!
