Review: NEW! Yadah Skin & Body Care from Korea for the Young

by xin on September 10, 2012

Say hello to Yadah!

Yadah is a new Korean skincare who recently entered Malaysia. It claims to use natural and botanical products, specially targeted at  teenagers and young adults.

The first impression I got was : Wow, this is really young! Almost looking too young for me. It has a total of about 10 products in the range, ranging from skin care and body care such as handcream and shampoo.

The skin care is a really basic one without any treatment for the concerns. Again, young skin shouldn’t have much to deal with other than acne.

Yadah Skincare in Malaysia

Featuring a young girl named ‘Yadah’ and her pet alien called ‘Yom Yom’ (which looks like a plastic bag to me), the designs are really cute and definitely more eye catching than other fellow brands like Skinfood or Etude House.

As shown in the picture above, it’s their range of products: BB cream, hand cream, facial mists, toner, emulsion, facial wash & shampoo.

Yadah Pouches

And oh they have really cute pouches with a couple of brush slots at the side. I picked up one myself too because it was just irresistible ><

“Yadah is a range of botanical skincare products for teens and young adults formulated with natural plant extracts like essential oils, floral water, barks and traditional herbs etc. that works in perfect harmony with the skin. The gentle yet effective formulas are 100% free from artificial colouring, preservatives, mineral oil, and sulphate and do not contain animal extracts of any kind. They are most suitable for young skin as this particular age range have more tender skin that is more vulnerable to harsh chemicals.

Yadah Bubble Deep Cleanser

Price: Bubble Deep Cleanser 150ml/RM49

Gently washes away impurities and excess sebum including make-up without stripping off the skin’s natural moisture. Bubble formula deep cleanses thoroughly into the pores.

I have been using this cleanser for a while and I quite like the citrusy scent and it cleanses quite well. It can be doubled as removing light makeup. It’s dispensed into form so it saves you the hassle of lathering. However, this can be drying if you have very dry skin.

Yadah Hair Natural Shampoo

Price : Natural Shampoo 400ml/RM45 & 250ml/RM35

Helps soothe sensitive and irritated scalp. Delicately cleanses and purifies scalp without drying out the scalp leaving hair smelling naturally fresh and clean.

I am not sure how should I feel towards this shampoo. It claims to be natural, and it does feel natural. It’s a basic shampoo for normal hair without targeting concerns like greasy scalp or thinning hair.

If you have oily hair, your scalp might turn greasy after just a few hours. Therefore, I reserve this shampoo for night use or on the weekends. You will need a conditioner too.

Yadah Vitamin C Toner

Price: Vitamin Toner 80ml/RM49

Enriched with organic Opuntia Ficus to soothe and hydrate the skin. Specially formulated with orange and lemon extracts filled with vitamins to help refresh, tone and brighten the skin. Fruit extracts aid to eliminate excess sebum on the skin hence it refreshes the skin naturally.

Has a gel texture, feels cooling and refreshing upon contact with skin. Suitable for combination and oily skin. Non-comedogenic, oil-free and irritant-free.

I picked up this bottle because I quite like the gel texture. It’s a toner with orange and lemon extract, but I find it more hydrating than the regular toners. However, I am wary to use it in the day, I am not sure if it will increase the sun sensitivity. It’s definitely safe to use at night though.  They have a Vitamin Emulsion in the range which I find it to be too light for my dry skin.

Overall Thoughts:

Yadah is a range of affordable skincare/bodycare line with nothing more than RM50. It’s suitable for young skin without much concerns. It makes adorable gifts too! Unfortunately, that’s about it. Yadah doesn’t carry any anti-acne range for now, which I find it rather strange. Perhaps the Korean teens don’t have to deal with much acne. I am afraid this will not be suitable for the mature skin with concerns such fine lines and dehydration. Even I do need intensive hydration treatment at age below 30. I can’t imagine what I will have to use in the coming years.

If you need to pick up a thing or two as a gift – try the cactus mist or hand cream!

Price: Below RM50

Availability: Stage counters and selected Sasa outlets

They have bb cream? I never knew!
I’ve stopped using bb creams when I switched to organic/natural products but I kinda miss them. Just this morning, I accidentally went out without applying sunblock and I was horrified!!! So I dropped by guardian and “tested” bb creams. 😀

Then Hubby said my skin looked nice and dewy… and I realized how much I miss bb creams.

I am not huge on BB creams, but they generally do give a dewy finish instead of matte. I sometimes drop by pharmacies to test out lotions when i forget my handcreams ><

Their packaging is cute…I use the blue makeup pouch. I didn’t try this range but my friend, who is in her 30s did and she quite liked it. She was the one who reviewed it on my blog.

Ooops…actually my friend is longer in her 30s but early 40s! :p
