Welcome to my blog!

If you are in for an adventure paired with lengthy, quirky, brutal honest thoughts then you are in the right place.

My name is Arisa and was a cosplayer for 12 years in Malaysia before settling down in Kyoto, Japan. Exploring Japan full time has been a long time dream of mine, so let's explore it together!

teinei DEEP HYDRATING CREAM “ONE" now available in Malaysia (Intro & Review)

Gather round people!

A new skincare brand from Japan is in town and you’ll definitely want it under your radar especially if you are looking for something simple yet powerful enough to do the job of multiple products without breaking the bank. I get that having an elaborate skincare routine seems to be the “IN” thing on social media (especially TikTok) these days and it’s not unusual to see one using more than 10 products on their face to achieve the dewy look (or oily, you decide lol). It’s hard to stay relevant when you don’t follow these bizarre beauty trends and not going to lie, seeing these videos just makes my wallet cry. Perfect time to use that trending reel audio “I’m broke, send donations, help out a friend” lol.

First things first, let me highlight something important I’ve learned over the years of testing and blogging about skincare.


And this is true.

I know it sounds rather oxymoronic but hear me out, this phrase isn’t only limited to skincare but it applies to other areas in life too. Sometimes we humans like to overcomplicate things just to feel like we are in control of the situation, when in reality we are just making a huge mess out it. The solution is usually right in front of us but only becomes evident when we clear out the distractions.

This may also a sign to start KONMARI-ing your vanity table ASAP lol jk!

The reason why I brought up this up is because it’s relevant to what I’ll be sharing today.

Who is teinei?

teinei is a Japanese skincare brand specially curated for Malaysians and was officially launched last October (2021). You might not have heard much about them yet as they are relatively new to the scene but that’s why we are here today to talk about them and how they’ve used Japan’s cutting edge technology to formulate a safe and trustworthy product to help combat local skin concerns caused by air pollutants, oily food and so on.   

In Japanese the word 'teinei" actually carries the meaning 'thoughtful, kind and careful'; exactly what the brand strives to deliver. The name selection couldn't be more perfect.

Embodying a minimalist approach, their signature product- DEEP HYDRATING CREAM “ONE" like its namesake is an all in one product that replaces your usual toner, moisturizer, serum, and emulsion. Promising to deliver the ultimate moisture boost your skin needs to revitalize and strengthen its epidermic layer which functions as a barrier (as you all know) from external irritants.


It is designed for sensitive and dry skin users making suitable for all skin-types, it is also free of Paraben, Ethanol, Talc, UV absorber, Mineral Oil, Sulfate, animal derived ingredients (such as pig/ cow), Synthetic dye, Synthetic perfume, and Silicone.

Ingredients List:

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, Jojoba Oil Macadamia Seed Oil Esters, Sodium Aspartate, Sodium Acetylated Hyaiuronate, Alanine, Allantoin, Arginine, Isobutyl Isostearate Isoleucine, Disodium Inosinate, Ellagic Acid, Olea Europaea(Olive)Fruit Oil, Carbomer, Disodium Guarylate, Giycosyi Trehalose, Glycine, Glyceryl Glucoside, Dipotassium Glycyrhizate, Glutamic Acid, Cocoyl Adipic Acid / trimethylolpropane Copolymer, Prunus Lannesiana Flower Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii(Shea)butter, Diglycerin, Squalane, Squalene, Salvia Officinalis(Sage)Leaf Extract, Ceramide AP, Ceramide NG, Ceramide NP, Serine, Phytosteryl / Isostearyl/ Cetyl/Stearyl / Behenyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Taurine, Tyrosine, Triisostearin, Threonine, Vailine, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Histidine HCI, Phytosterols, Phenylalanine、Phenoxyethanol, Proline, Simmondsia Chinensis(Jojoba)Seed Oil, Phytosteryl Macadamiate, Oenothera Biennis(Evening Primrose)Seed Extract, Citrus Junos Fruit Extract, Lysine HCI, Leucine, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Royal Jelly Extract, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Oryza Sativa(Rica)Lees Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin



It’s one of the most efficient way to get your skin’s hydration levels clocked in without having to layer on so many products and it delivers the same result (or even better). And who doesn’t like efficiency?

Getting everything we need done within 24 hours a day has already been proven to be a challenge, so I’ll take whatever time I can save lol.


“If you are looking for something to compliment your conscious lifestyle, look no further because teinei DEEP HYDRATING CREAM “ONE" might be the life-long companion you were searching for.”


teinei DEEP HYDRATING CREAM “ONE" has an in-between gel and cream like consistency that feels light on the skin and has an impressive absorbency rate, resulting a smooth and supple finishing. Though for some it may feel abit heavier compared to their usual gel moisturizers but rest assured that it doesn’t clog pores. As a person with dry and sensitive skin type, I’m usually wary of such claims but after using it for 2 weeks myself, it is true that it doesn’t irritate my existing delicate maskne (acne/ pimples caused by wearing face masks) condition and in fact, I’ve noticed lesser chaffing issues as the layer of cream (with sunblock on top of course) acts as a direct barrier between my skin and the mask.

This allows my acne and pimples to heal at its own pace without further irritation, this alone feels like a big win for me!

It also contains powerful natural ingredients such as:

  • Yuzu essence which helps to smoothen rough and wrinkled skin and alleviates irritation (anti-inflammatory properties).
  • Sakura essence used is sourced from Iwate prefecture; high in antioxidants, helps brightens dull and uneven skin tone by penetrating into the foundation layers to improve the skin’s turnover cycle (regeneration).
  • Fermented sake paste essence, a well-known and common ingredient used in Japanese skincare for its anti-aging properties. It’s also alcohol free!
  •  Sage relieves skin irritation and help to speed up the healing process thanks to its astringent properties.

They are included to address skin issues we face on a daily basis, making this small yet powerful jar the perfect skin companion you need as it has you covered in all areas, not to mention seasons too. Used it during winter, and it fared rather well for a 4-in-1 product, no patchy flaking issues! It’s mind-blowing because normally for those of us living in countries with 4 seasons, we tend to switch our skincare routine 2-3 times a year to match our surrounding conditions.  If you only needed one product for the rest of your life, imagine how much you would save on annual skincare expenses. The answer is A LOT!

If you are constantly on the go and the idea of having to carry around your entire skincare collection sounds rather cumbersome, this is also a sign for you to get teinei DEEP HYDRATING CREAM “ONE" and trust me it is a game changer because from having a few bottles in your toiletry pouch to only one, this give you additional luggage weight for more shopping lol.

Gotta pack smart!

Another well thought out design that went into producing this cream is that it comes with its own mini spatula, I know it doesn’t sound much or “shouldn’t it be an obvious thing to include?”  but you’ll be surprised to know how a lot of brands tend to skip out on it just to save on production cost lol. The spatula is crucial for hygiene purposes because once you dip your hand in directly, the chances of bacterial contamination is pretty high (though not obvious to the naked eye of course) and this may affect the overall performance of the product.

For those wondering how much to use, just a small amount (literally 1 cm is enough) of the cream goes a long way to provide and lock moisture in and irritants out so you can live your best life without worries. And always apply on clean skin for optimal results.
