REVIEW ON SWANICOCO A.C CONTROL CARE EMULSION

Hi,

Swanicoco A. C control care emulsion is a line made for trouble skin which means acne prone skin type. I was mostly interested in this A.C line from Swanicoco because ... Yes, you got me. I have acne prone skin much to my dismay when I already over 30 years old.  Here, I thought that I will be over that pimply rebellious phase so that I can use whatever on my face and will not break out from it.  Nope, fat hopes.  I still do breakout whenever I have dairy, whenever I am in stress or just when my skin feels like it.

So, when I was lucky enough to try Swanicoco which is a popular brand in Korea itself, I was really excited about it.  I had review the Swanicoco A.C control tea tree essence and Swanicoco A.C control care skin toner separately.

Ingredients: (provided by Swanicoco)

Swanicoco A. C control care emulsion has a really nice pretty packaging with well thought design to keep the products intact even during shipping.  The heavy transparent glass bottle has a pump which I like. It is just that it is heavy during travel so one probably have to decant into smaller plastic bottle.

The ingredients list is longer than the Swanicoco A.C Control toner and also the A.C Control essence which I have been using along for my skincare routine. It also has similar ingredients with the toner and essence.  The other ingredients added are for added hydration and for the moisturising effect.  Still do check the ingredeints list because some people do not really work well with the Cetearyl Olivate/Sorbitan Olivate (olive oil), jojoba oil, sodium hyaluronate or the vitamin E.  There is ceramide 3 which is actually great to moisturise the skin and is not in the toner and essence.  My skin do like the plant ingredients such as neem, grapefruit, Scutellaria Baicalensis, peony and soybean ferment. The second ingredient Zinc Sulfate is one of my favourite ingredients that help with healing acne.  The main ingredients is tea tree leaf water which is gentle to the skin.


Swanicoco A. C control care emulsion is an opaque white light lotion which goes on really smooth and absorb without stickness really fast even in place that has high humidity. It has slight tea tree smell but the smell disappeared fast as well.  It is enough to moisturise the skin on the oily area of my face but I do need to use more on my other drier areas.  If you have dry skin, then this might be too light.  It didn't clog my skin and won't mess with your makeup if you use one since it doesn't have silicone in it. I don't think using this alone will make your acne disappeared since it is just a moisturiser.

Overall, Swanicoco A. C control care emulsion is a nice light moisturiser for acne prone, combination or oily skin type and for those that do not have problem with any of the above ingredients.

REVIEW ON WECOMED MAGIC WATER

Hi Beauties,

This year I have been lucky to be able to try out so many beauty products and the weirder the products, the more interested I am in.  I was excited when I saw the word 'magic' and with magic it better be good if not magically turning me into some mermaid ๐Ÿ˜‚ .

So, here is another review on a skincare product from Wecomed, Wecomed Magic Water.

Ingredients:

Just like the Wecomed magic makeup remover which I had reviewed, Wecomed Magic Water has the same mist nozzle which is easy to use and secure. The mist came out really fine as it does not leave traces of water on my face ๐Ÿ˜

The bottle design is just the colour that light and it represent water which is the first ingredients inside the mist.

Wecomed Magic Water does not contains paraben and are made from natural ingredients.

I think the interesting ingredients which does not contain just water but other dryness and calming ingredients such as snail, green tea, rosemary,hyaluronic acid and other plant ingredients. Do check out the ingredient list that I provide above ๐Ÿ˜Š

I place the Wecomed Magic Water in room temperature of 35 celcius and when I used it to mist my face, the mist came out feeling cooling and the feeling does last a few minutes compare to just using water which disappeared upon contact with skin.  It does immediately provide relief to reduce the heat and redness on my face.  I use it to spray it a few times to hydrate my skin and when I am so tired and busy that I just couldn't go through the 6 steps of my skincare routine.

It doesn't clogged my skin and doesn't really have any noticeable scent to it since there is no fragrance in it.  Having it in a mist form is really convenient as the mist doesn't disrupt my makeup or needs me to touch my face with my dirty fingers.

Overall, Wecomed Magic Water is certainly not magic but it is magic when your skin is irritated and the first emergency product could be using this Wecomed Magic Water to cool down your skin and prevent further itchness and skin irritation.

REVIEW ON SWANICOCO A.C CONTROL TEA TREE ESSENCE

Hi,

What are popular in Korea is not known outside Korea because of lack of marketing. One of such brand is Swanicoco. If you check out the Naver, then you will notice that Swanicoco is a wonderful Korean brand that received a lot of good reviews from Korean beauty enthusiasts.

What I have today is the Swanicoco A.C control tea tree essence.  This is an essence for sensitive, acne prone skin and suitable for even dry skin type that could not use stronger stuff such as tretinoin or 1% BHA or 10% glycolic acid.


Swanicoco

Swanicoco is a Korean natural skincare line that prides itself for its patented raw component and nano fermented formulations, using natural extracts in replace of harmful components. All formulations use latest ingredients such as Astraxan, snail secretions, rice fermentation, human oligopeptides, fermented cell cultures of ginseng & hydrolyzed collagen.  Sung Chunsun started making simple homemade products grew into a large international company helping many people with skin sensitivity.

Swanicoco is against animal testing, natural, Eco-cert certified and using organic ingredients.


Swanicoco A.C Control tea tree essence comes in beautiful green and white design.  The box is also very well made with a sturdy paper box inside to avoid the plastic transparent bottle from too much movement.  I like that it comes in a dropper form too. I think it is great that Swanicoco even put a lot of thought into the packaging up to the aesthetic value and functional value of their product

The bottle is made from a beautiful glass bottle with a dropper which is great to control the amount of product.

Swanicoco A.C Control tea tree essence comes in a transparent liquid and there isn't any smell to it even when I bring it so close to my nose. The liquid spread into my skin really easily and absorb into my skin really well. I do love the texture as it doesn't burn and I can use it with my other spot treatment without any problem.  I can use it at night as well during the day.

Swanicoco A.C Control tea tree essence has short ingredients list and I think there ingredients in there are really great for calming acne prone skin and hydrating it at the same time without being too much.

As for the ingredients list, there are many beneficial ingredients for acne prone skin.  Looking for the ingredient list, it has great ingredients.

Zinc sulfate is great for acne prone skin which is always deficient in zinc. Besides, zinc can help the skin to heal.  Plants ingredients such as Centella asiatica help to calm the skin. Sea buck thorn contains palmitoleic acid which nourish and heal wounds on acne prone skin. Peony is a traditional herbs used to calm the skin  heat, removes toxin and provide antioxidant on the skin. Allantoin is an effective skin soothing since it is anti-inflammatory while also is an emollient.  Trehalose is a type of sugar found in plants, fungi and invertebrate animals and is used as moisturizer.

I have been using Swanicoco A.C Control tea tree essence along with Swanicoco A.C Control emulsion and also the A.C Control skin toner. I really do like it because it is really gentle, does not irritate, help to keep my skin clear, reduce redness on my skin, doesn't clogged my skin and reduce the oil production on my skin while keeping my other area hydrated. My skin type surely has changed to be less oilier on my T-zone.  I don't even need to blot my skin anymore.  Although it contains tea tree oil, it had never even once burnt my skin no matter how much or how many times I apply it on my skin which is really amazing.

Swanicoco A.C Control tea tree essence would be a great start for someone dealing with light to medium acne prone skin and is not ready for all the strong prescription products that can scar the skin without the usage knowledge.  Swanicoco A.C Control tea tree essence is of pH 5.5.  Healthy skin pH is around 5.5 so having a product of that pH is great to keep the skin slightly acidic and acne controlled.

Overall, Swanicoco A.C Control tea tree essence is another gentle mild option as skin spot treatment for mild to moderate acne prone skin.  One can use it every day and extra application doesn't cause the skin to peel or irritated.  However, if you have serious acne, this might be too mild.

REVIEW ON BY WISHTREND MANDELIC ACID 5% SKIN PREP WATER

Hi Beautiful,

I have acne prone skin and have been dealing with acne for more than 15 years ago so I am in for any skincare products to get rid of acne. My acne is not as bad as before but then as usual, my skin is fickle and it can't never be 100% at its best all the time.  Besides, now that I am after 30 years old,  I had to add in 'wrinkles and aging' as my skin concern.

So recently I have been trying By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water and it has been a month since I tried it so here is a review on it.  If you only want to get a product for your acne prone skin from Wishtrend, I would highly recommend this cause I am waiting for sale to stock up on this product myself.

1) Before the toner, gently wipe and pat the product on your face using a cotton pad.
2) Limit the use of this product depending on your skin type. (For sensitive skin, we recommend 2-3 times a week)

The bottle is plastic so do not leave it under the sun or inside the car for it to melt.  I can actually the amount of product inside the bottle which is great. I actually use cotton pad for this toner because I just like to wipe my face off all those death cells.  The opening is great to get enough products without spilling it out which is nice.

By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water does not have any smell to it but if you still want a smell, it is like very faint plastic scent.  It is very watery and absorb fast into the skin.  There is a tart feeling which is a characteristic of acid.

If you are like me, (I have acne prone skin forever) then you might understand that I am more interest in product that gives me fast result without those irritation.  I have been trying many BHA and AHA skincare products in the past if you do check out my blog history.

Mandelic acid is actually extracted from bitter almond. So it is not really for those with nut allergic or allergic to almond.  Mandelic acid is one of the many types of AHA.  For examples, glycolic acid, acetic acid (TCA), lactic acid, malic acid, citric acid etc.  The strongest AHA that is able to penetrate the skin deeper is glycolic.  It can work faster but also cause a lot of irritation so not everyone can use it.  When your skin is red and raw from the over exfoliation, your skin actually does not heal well and it reject majority of the products that you normally can use on daily basis. In some people the skin retaliate by breaking out more.  So, strong AHAs are usually only done as peel in skin clinic where there is professional to do it in a sterile environment. Of course that comes with a price to pay and your skin peeling for a week.

For skincare products at home, mandelic acid is a great AHA because it is the weakest AHAs among all but has the ability to exfoliate the skin, anti-inflammatory and also antibacterial.  However, 20% of mandelic acid can be too much for everyday use so mandelic acid around 5% to 10% is ideal for most acne prone skin type.

By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water has about 5% mandelic acid which is gentle actually.  Besides, the amount of mandelic acid is suspended in water which makes the penetration not too deep into the skin.  Other ingredients are added for hydration, soothing, retain moisture and to brighten the skin.  Mandelic acid with just water is going to  be very drying so ingredients such as Beta-Glucan, Panthenol, Licorice Root Extract, Sweet Almond Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Centella Asiatica Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Sorbitol, Arginine (amino acid), and Hydrolyzed Collagen.

The other ingredients (Dimethyl Sulfone, Chlorphenesin, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin) are mostly preservative and to control the texture of the product.  There is a interesting ingredient in this which is Sodium Citrate which is use to increase the pH of the product. I think this is the reason that this product pH is at 4-5 which is the best for AHA to work.

If you are into the current trend of low pH thing, then you would know that products should of be certain pH for something to work bla bla bla ... .  I have a post HERE talking about that if you are interested on it.  However, too low and your skin is going to burn.  Acid that has pH more than 7 is useless.

By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water makes the skin smooth, brighten the skin, exfoliate the skin for other skincare products to get absorbed better, gentle, heal the acne scars, makes the pores cleaner and keep the skin clearer.  If you have those underground acne, it does bring the acne up to the surface faster.  It does sting for a few seconds if you have open wound so do not pick on your acne.

I would recommend to use it only at night and few times in a week. Also avoid using other BHA, AHA or retinol when you are using this Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water since you can easily over exfoliate and make your face red and breakout more.  If your skin can tolerate stronger stuff, you can add a weaker BHA with it. If you want to use retinol or those strong tretinoin, avoid using it on the same day.

I use this toner four times a week with my other calming and gentle skincare products.  it does not make my acne worse or cause more acne. On the first three days, I could feel that my skin becomes smoother.  The acne and pimples I have become gradually smaller and get rid of the red acne marks faster.
Currently, I don't own or use any strong actives since I prefer gentle approach towards treating acne.  This toner won't be able to make dented or 'holes' type of scars disappeared from the skin if that is what you think to get for.

Overall, By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water is a great gentle AHA toner for treating acne and skin texture issues.  If you have dry sensitive skin, it is best to use it twice a week and with a lot of calming moisturising products.  For combination skin like me, I find it okay to use everyday if you do not use any other strong actives. Also use sunscreen when using this products cause you do not want to undo everything.
