We’ve touted our love for 3Lab products previously and recently we got to spend some time with founder of this skincare series, Erica Chung. Read on to see why she’d like to marry a Chinese man and why when she wore her first big investment purchase, people asked her if she was in the button business.
EC: I travel so much and cross so many time zones that an easy, essential skin care regimen is extremely important. The three products that I must have with me are Super H Serum, M Cream and our new Super Eye Treatment. The Super H Serum and M Cream keep my skin hydrated, replenished and rejuvenated. And the Super Eye Treatment helps with all my eye concerns that can develop while I'm traveling like puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles.
HKFG: What’s your favourite thing about HK?
EC: My favorite thing about Hong Kong is that it makes me feel at home being in Asia. I always feel welcome and comfortable. I love the great Chinese food and it's easy to communicate because so many people there speak English. And, of course, it is such a beautiful, colorful city filled with interesting sites, shops and friendly people.
HKFG: What’s your secret ambition?
EC: My hope is to build 3LAB to be a long lasting legacy, providing people around the globe with a skin care line that delivers healthy, clear and youthful skin.
HKFG: What was your first big investment purchase?
EC: My Moschino jacket with hundreds of buttons. People kept asking me if I was in the button business when I was wearing it.
HKFG: what you would wish for if a genie came out of a lamp to grant u 3 wishes
EC: 1) That I could speak all the languages in the world so I can communicate with people in all the countries I visit.
2) That I could provide people in underdeveloped countries with the products for healthy skin and bring a smile and a bit of beauty to each of their lives.
3) Marry a Chinese man. I understand that they cook, do the grocery shopping, handle all the domestic duties AND take care of the finances.
HKFG: What’s your secret-weapon beauty product
EC: My Perfect Mask from 3LAB. It works miracles on your skin before going out or after the harsh days. It is especially great for traveling to revive my skin after a long flight.
HKFG: What’s your worst nightmare?
EC: Going out without wearing sun protection on my skin
HKFG: What’s the last thing you think about before going to sleep?
EC: I am one of those people who's mind is always racing. Especially when I am in a creative mode and in the process of developing new products. When my head hits the pillow I am often thinking about what could be the next great beauty innovation we can introduce.
