REVIEW ON SKIN1004 MADAGASCAR CENTELLA-ASIATICA 100 AMPOULE

Hi beautifuls ❤ ,

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella-Asiatica 100 Ampoule products have been blowing up on social media in Korea for soothing acne prone skin and I just have to get it.  I was excited and have been using it for about a month along with some other products.  I think by now, most reader would know that I have been loving centella asiatica products since few years ago and they work really well on my acne prone sensitive skin without burning my skin. 

Centella asiatica is also a plant that is found in South East Asia and in Madagascar which you can actually eat it too.  It is safe even for pregnant mothers since it is herbs used post child birth to speed up healing during confinement.

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella-Asiatica 100 Ampoule

Skin type: All skin types
How to use: Apply a couple of drops evenly onto the skin and gently tap in for better absorption.

Key Ingredients:
Asiaticoside 30% - Improves the water-to-oil balance of the skin
Asiactic acid 30%- Strengthens the skin's barrier and has antioxidant effects for anti-aging
Madecassic acid 40%- Repairs damaged skin and evens out scar tissue

Centella Asiatica extract 100%



Skin1004 Madagascar Centella-Asiatica 100 Ampoule comes in a frosted bottle with dropper in it.  

For the ingredients, there is only one ingredient with the three component of centella asiatica in it. I don’t think there is preservative but the product seems fine even when I don’t place it inside the fridge. Centella asiatica has the ability to speed up healing and protect skin from damage.

The liquid is slightly yellowish  with slight viscosity to it. There is a faint plant scent but it is not prolong. I have been using it for a month with a week with just this ampoule alone and the other weeks with other products. This is a multi uses products. I have use it as mist, sheet mask and also layering it as toner.

Skin1004 Madagascar Centella-Asiatica 100 Ampoule absorbs into my skin fast without stickiness or residue if you pat it onto your skin. I find that it is a gentle skincare products that helps with healing my skin when I pick my skin, reduce redness from the hot weather and breakouts. It does work on healing whiteheads but not on acne prevention, I don’t see it actually since I still breakout in cystic acne when I eat dairy and high sugary food. I think this is a products that speed up healing, hydrate the skin reduce acne damage, reduce red scars and dark scars. I use it with my neem powder and the centella powder which works really great together.

Overall, Skin1004 Madagascar Centella-Asiatica 100 Ampoule is a great gentle product for speeding up healing, reduce acne damage, reduce redness and hydrate the skin well for any skin type.

REVIEW ON iUNIK BLACK SNAIL RESTORE SERUM

Hi Snail lovers,

Snails is an ingredient popularised by the Korean beauty industry that I don't need any introduction on this magical or gross! to some  😰

It was a hype ingredient that stay in trends through all the fast moving Kbeauty world.  The In ingredients for unique Korean skincare product, quicken the healing of acne scars, hydrating to dry acne prone skin type and for those with damaged skin barrier.

This is a review on iUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum with the snail ingredient as the first ingredient.

​INGREDIENTS:
Snail Secretion Filtrate, Centella Asiatica Leaf Water, Methylpropanediol, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Glycereth-26,Water, 1,2-Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Saccharomyces/Viscum Album (Mistletoe) Ferment Extract, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Laminaria Japonica Extract,Glycine Soja (Soybean) Seed Extract,Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Extract, Solanum Melongena (Eggplant) Fruit Extract, Saccharomyces/Imperata Cylindrica Root Ferment Extract, Caprylyl Glycol,Butylene Glycol,Allantoin,Centella Asia Tica Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Artemisia Vulgaris Extract,Vaccinum Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract,Rosa Canina Fruit oil,Carbomer,Arginine, Pentylene Glycol, Adenosine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Xanthan Gum, Aspalathus Linearis Extract

iUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum comes in a glass dropper style 50ml bottle which is really classy and at the price of USD 15.49 I do think it is very affordable.

Let's talk about the ingredients, there is no artificial fragrant or colouring and focus more on effective ingredients.
The star ingredient which is snail is the first ingredient in their list of ingredients which ensure that you get what you pay for.  They use centella asiatica leaf water to help with the calming and healing.

There are many ferments and plant extract which helps with healing, hydration, calming and brightening.  Ingredients such as Blueberry, rice, licorice, gingko extract and rosehip are great to help with wrinkles and healing the skin. I do think their ingredients are great for this serum.

It contains high snail secretion filtrate so it has some viscosity to it.  It is not sticky, absorb fast into the skin and provide moisture at the same time. I can forgo my thicker moisturiser on days the weather is too hot and humid.  It does help to heal my skin from redness and when I picked on my acne.

Snails is great for healing and for moisturising when the hype exploded 5 years ago.  The rave has not end since snail is still one of the ingredients love by many for the healing ability.  With the high competitive cosmetics in Korea, it has to be something good for it to stay this long.

You can also use this UNIK Black Snail Restore Serum on cuts to fasten the healing process.  One can use it to hydrate and heal skin from over exfoliation too.

While some people may think that snail ingredient is for anti aging, that is not true since snails mucin is mainly for soothing, hydrate the skin without being too heavy and protecting the skin from further damage.

However, there are some people who cannot use snails so do test it on a small part of your face first or behind your ears for a day.

Overall, iUNIK Black Snail Restore Serum is recommended for people who love snail ingredients, dry acne prone skin type and to deal with redness. I personally do think that this serum is great for hydration and soothing ability.  Big bottle with affordable price too.

Always21 Nature Refresh Mask Sheet – Acai Berry, Grapefruit , Gold Kiwi, Pomegranate, Green Apple.  Each of the mask has the same ingredients except for their Star ingredient. If their Star ingredient is grapefruit, then grapefruit extract is in written with the amount(ppm) of what they put inside.

Always21 Nature Refresh Mask Sheet fit is alright. It has wider width.  The material is cottony, does not tear up easily and of medium thickness. There are extra essence inside the package which is enough to apply to your neck or just pour it to the sheet mask when it is slightly drier.  The essence is a transparent liquid which does absorb and dry easily after masking.  There are extra liquid so one can prolong the time of the sheet masking session.

The scent depends on which variant you are using. It does have some synthetic fragrance that can be strong to some and stays during the masking time. The scent does disappeared once the essence on the face dries up. Green Apple has artificial scent of apple, pomegranate smells like cough syrup, acai berry smells like those bubblegum grapes, grapefruit smells like citrus grapefruit scent and gold kiwi smells like cough syrup.

Always21 Nature Refresh Mask Sheet doesn't irritate my skin. It does temporarily brighten and moisturise which also mean you do need to do sheet mask daily to maintain the hydration and brightness.

Overall, Always21 Nature Refresh Mask Sheet – Acai Berry, Grapefruit , Gold Kiwi, Pomegranate, Green Apple is a nice affordable sheet mask for every day sheet mask or just weekly mask.

REVIEW ON THE HERB FARM NORMAL (INCLUDING SENSITIVE) SKINCARE MINIS

Hi beautiful,

Today I am introducing The Herb Farm that is a 100% natural handcrafted in New Zealand.

When my skin got irritated by a cleanser I was testing 😢,  I had to go back to some of my usual products and The Herb Farm Normal(including sensitive) skincare minis to reduce the irritation and break outs.

Here is review on this kit which can last 2-3 weeks.
The Herb Farm Softening Rose Cream Cleanser

The Herb Farm Normal(including sensitive) skincare minis is a travel kit to soften and protect, normal and sensitive skin.  Inside is a four-step skin care system.

1. The Herb Farm Softening Rose Cream Cleanser
2. The Herb Smoothing Exfoliating Powder
3. The Herb Farm Rejuvenating Facial Toning Mist
4. The Herb Nourishing Rose Face Cream


1. The Herb Farm Softening Rose Cream Cleanser
The Herb Farm Softening Rose Cream Cleanser
The Herb Farm Softening Rose Cream Cleanser

A beautiful light and luxurious cleansing cream to effectively remove impurities and nourish your skin. Gently removes makeup including mascara.  Provides the perfect balance of natural oils to cleanse, nourish, and soften normal skin.

Usage: Gently massage two to three pumps onto damp skin and rinse off with warm water.
Ingredients:
Purified Water (Aqua), Glycerin (Vegetable Glycerin), Prunus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Organic Shea Butter), Glyceryl Stearate, Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Alkanna Tinctoria Root (Alkanet) in Prunus (Sweet Almond) Oil, Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Anisate, Rosa Damascena Absolute Oil, Citric Acid

Review: The Herb Farm Softening Rose Cream Cleanser smell amazing of rose. It does remove makeup and mascara.  The pH of the cleanser is at 5.5 which is great for sensitive skin.  The skin does feel hydrated even if I do not apply anything afterwards as it hydrating and does not make the skin feels dry after rinsing my water with water.  The ingredients are made up by a lot of oil that is to prevent evaporation of water that tends to happen with dry skin type or during summer.  I use it in the morning to lightly wash my skin since I can't just use water even when my skin was irritated.

2. The Herb Farm Smoothing Exfoliating Powder 💖 (15ml)

A deeply exfoliating powder to promote a fresh, radiant, and polished complexion.  Dead skin cells are buffed away.

Usage: Place a small amount of powder in the palm of your hand& two to three pumps of cleanser and mix. Massage into cleansed damp skin over the face and neck.  Rinse off with warm water.

Ingredients:
Oryza Sativa (Brown Rice) Powder, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Seed Meal, Linum Usitatissimum (Golden Flax/Linseed) Meal, Pumice Powder, Zeolite Powder, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Powder, Hordeum Vulgare Leaf (Barley) Powder, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Powder


Review: I use this once a week.  This is my favourite out of all the products as this is the dupe of the famous rice powder brand.  The texture is very soft after mix with water and my skin looks really good and better each time I use this powder.  It smells like rice and it is green from the natural colour of kiwi.

I do love the ingredients inside this product and one of it is the zeolite powder which absorb toxins, free radicals, and ions from the skin while helping maintain correct pH levels.  The rice powder, linseed, barley, kiwi and apple assist in brightening the skin and gently remove the outer dead skin without irritating the skin.


3. The Herb Farm Rejuvenating Facial Toning Mist (20ml)

A light facial mist to tone, hydrate your skin after cleansing and throughout the day.
Effectively rehydrates and refreshes your skin and make-up when spritzed throughout the day.

Usage: Spritz onto the skin after cleansing to hydrate and tone your skin, or use throughout the day to refresh your skin and make-up.
Ingredients:
Purified Water (Aqua), Glycerin (Vegetable Glycerin), Centella Asiatica (Gotu Kola) Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Absolute Oil

Review:  Surprisingly I did not get rash although there is rose in it.  I think it is probably the ingredients used are well formulated or of high quality.  I do like this toner that is gentle, pH of 5, hydrate the skin and make my skin soft.  It also has my favourite ingredients- the panax ginseng which is one of the high end ingredients for anti aging and also centella asiatica that heal the damaged skin.

It smells of rose.  I am not sure about the real big full size bottle but you do need to use a cotton pad with this travel version since it spray out water and not fine mist to your face.

If you are one that love to spray your skin with mist, buy a hydrating toner with a good ingredient like this one instead of just water because a toner can keep the skin hydrated better and cool down the skin.



4. The Herb Farm Nourishing Rose Face Cream (15g)

A beautiful face cream to nourish and protect your skin, providing hydration throughout the day.
Helps improve your skin's elasticity to give a youthful complexion.
Works with your skin's natural oils to leave it nourished, softened, and protected from the elements.



Usage: Gently massage a small amount of cream into your face and neck after cleansing and toning. Use in the morning and night.
Ingredients:
Aqua (Purified Water), Prunus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Glycerin (Vegetable Glycerin), Glyceryl Stearate ,Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Alkanna Tinctoria Root (Alkanet) in Prunus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Organic Shea Butter), Sodium Levulinate, Sodium Anisate, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Powder 200x, Rosa Damascena (Rose) Absolute Oil, Citric Acid

Review: This rose face cream is another product that smell of rose.  It has a lots of natural ingredients that is for hydrating and moisturising dry skin or normal skin type.  The pink colouring is from the high rose oil in it which is really nice and pretty.  The cream is very smooth, soft and goes on the skin well without making it sticky.  It makes my skin soft and it is wonderful at the dry part of my face. It doesn't irritate my skin or cause more clogged pores.


_______________________________________________________________________________

All the bottles and jar in this kit are made from heavy dark glass which is really nice and the products are filled to the brim.

The Herb Farm Normal(including sensitive) skincare minis is a really nice starter kit for even young skin type considering that it is 100% natural.  If I have to choose my favourite from four of the product, I would suggest the The Herb Farm Smoothing Exfoliating Powder and The Herb Farm Rejuvenating Facial Toning Mist.  Both of them are suitable for acne prone skin and make a difference to my skin.  The toner has simple and nice ingredients that keep my skin soft for the lazy me.

Overall, The Herb Farm Normal(including sensitive) skincare minis is great for normal, dry and sensitive skin type.  It also does help to reduce irritation, healing it and hydrate my skin without causing more injuries to my acne prone skin.  Love the simple and 100% natural skincare ingredients in their products.
