REVIEW ON SRB STABILIZED RICE BRAN ENZYME POWDER WASH

Hi beautiful,

Today is a review on the Korean, SRB Stabilized Rice Bran Enzyme Powder Wash which has quickly become some of my favourite cleansers because of their gentle ability to clean the skin and calm irritated skin. 😍

It is a cleanser created based on the ancient beauty secret of lady from the court using water from washing rice.😍 So if you love rice products, do check out why I would suggest this cleanser especially for those constantly travelling to other places.

Honestly I like rice water but I am just too lazy to keep those water inside the fridge and make a mess of myself each time I need to use rice water to wash my face and having to eat rice daily just for the rice water.  Having SRB Stabilized Rice Bran Enzyme Powder Wash  sure makes my life easier while I still enjoy the benefits of washing my face with rice water.

SRB Stabilized Rice Bran Enzyme Powder Wash

Suggested Use:
1.  Add about 1 gram of product to your palm.
2.  Then, add a small amount of water to your hand.
3.  Rub your hands together until it foam into soft foam.
4.  Apply to skin and massage using circular motions.
5.  Rinse with water.

Ingredients:
Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Pollen Extract, Allantoin, Collagen, Betaine, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Sorbitol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Asocorbyl Palmitate, Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA, Papain, Fragrance


SRB Stabilized Rice Bran Enzyme Powder Wash comes in a simple light white bottle.  The opening is pretty big so be careful not to our too much.

SRB Stabilized Rice Bran Enzyme Powder Wash is yellowish grainy powdery but upon water, it will dissolves itself. Rubbing it with palm will foam it up so one doesn't have to use a lot.  The foam is really soft and lush.  It removes light and sweat proof makeup too.  One might need more powder to remove those oil sweat proof makeup.
It has the pH of 5.5 after adding water of pH7.  The light scent of rice and the foam is very soft, gentle, non irritating and calming on my skin.

The ingredients are pretty interesting.  It doesn't have ultraviolet absorber, synthetic colouring, mineral oil, paraben, pH regulator, harsh surfactant or animal ingredients.  The surfactant use is a mild one which also common in baby soap and so it is gentle for everyday usage.

The other ingredients presented inside are grapefruit seed, pollen extract, allantoin, collagen, betaine, aloe vera, sorbitol, vitamin C, papaya enzyme are for calming, light exfoliation, and hydrating during the cleansing process.

Although a cleanser doesn't do much,  it is important to find one that clean the skin without irritation so finding a good one will help the skin in the long run.  The ingredients presented doesn't strip the skin off and damage the moisture so I do think SRB Stabilized Rice Bran Enzyme Powder Wash is a great cleanser.

I usually don't like foam cleanser but this is different because it is just so mild but cleanses well without feeling strip of moisture.

Overall, SRB Stabilized Rice Bran Enzyme Powder Wash is a gentle mild cleanser, low pH of 5.5, easy for travelling(it is in powder form), love rice and suitable for any skin type.

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

Hi beautiful,

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.

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.

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.

Today is a review on Ishtar Cleansing Clay which has low pH and comes from a cruelty free brand.
Ishtar also gives back to charity, contains no SLS, no mineral oil and no paraben.  It is also a brand from United Kingdom with affordable price.

Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder / Ishtar Clay To Milk Cleansing Powder is a cleanser for combination (oily t zone and normal at other area), redness and acne prone skin.  So if you have the same skin type as I do, do check this review.

Ingredients:
Kaolin Clay, Coco Nucifera extract, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Pineapple Fruit Powder, Honey, Coconut extract, White willow bark extract, marshmallow root extract, Organic Bergamot Essential Oil, Organic White Grapefruit Essential Oil.


Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder comes in form of a plastic bottle.  You will need to use a spatula to scoop the clay powder.  The soft greyish powder just dissolves into milk upon contact with water.  It doesn't bubble so do not apply too much water.

Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder / Ishtar Clay To Milk Cleansing Powder ingredients does look great for oily or sensitive skin with sebum that needs exfoliation.

Kaolin is great to suck sebum from skin.

The surfactant used is derived from coconut.
Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate is a cleansing agent but it is not a sulfate so it is not the same as SLS.

Pineapple is great for light exfoliation while honey provide calming and antibacterial effect on the skin.

White willow bark is BHA, Marshmallow root is used to reduce the pain and swelling (inflammation) of dry skin.

Organic Bergamot is used to calm the skin and clean the skin. it is the least toxic oil of most oils.

Organic White Grapefruit is popular for exfoliating and brighten your skin. It is popular anti aging ingredients in skincare products.


When we talk about cleanser, the goal is to find a gentle cleanser that will not irritate the skin or clogged the pores. This is especially true for acne prone skin that can just get irritated from some harsh cleansing skincare products.

Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder / Ishtar Clay To Milk Cleansing Powder looks great since it has gentle ingredients that clean my skin without irritation.  My skin feels soft and moist after washing.  It has low pH of pH5-6(mix with water of pH7) which is the pH of our skin too.  The scent of clay is really very faint actually unless one use more powder than water ratio.

The powder melts into the water and coloured the water slightly greyish.  There isn't feeling of beads with this cleanser.  It helps my skin to clear up my acne faster even when I was only using the cleanser with a few of my other acne products.

As for cleansing power, I am surprised with the ability to remove even sweatproof makeup.  As for the eyes area, I use a cotton pad soak in the mixture of the powder and water.  However, it doesn't work on those sweatproof Japanese mascara.

It is sure easily to carry for travelling.  The only thing is I have to use a spatula or else I will pour too much of the powder out of the bottle.

Overall, Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder / Ishtar Clay To Milk Cleansing Powder is great low pH powder suitable for travelling, combination acne prone skin that have redness.

Does this Countour Cleanser really make the face sharp and make the face look smaller?  Jump to the end of the review.

Ingredients:
Glycerin,Water, Myristic Acid, Stearic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Palmitic Acid, Lauric Acid, PEG-32, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Lactose, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Polyquaternium-67, Sodium Chloride, Disodium EDTA, Menthol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Polyquaternium-7, Fructooligosaccharides, Saccharide Hydrolysate, Pullulan,1,2-Hexanediol,Tocopheryl Acetate, Mesembryanthemum Crystallinum Extract,Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Acetate, Butylene Glycol, Lippia Citriodora Leaf Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance


Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser comes without a box but it is wrap in plastic.  The frozen looking plastic tube allows one to see the amount of product inside.  It has white looking paste and one needs very little to foam up a lot of cleanser. I could also feel the micro capsules which breaks when mix with water.

There is a light powdery scent in the cleanser. The toner and the cream also has the same scent.  The cleanser does last a long time because one need very little.


As for the ingredients, the glycerin does help in making the cleanser not drying comparing to the usual foam cleanser.  It uses derivatives of coconut oil and palm oil as cleanser ingredients in it.  There are surfactant for foaming cleanser presented so do check it out.  Potassium hydroxide can be irritating to some skin type.
I do feel the cool feeling which is because of the menthol inside the cleanser.
Some ingredients such as lactose, vitamin E, ice plant extract, lemon are to lessen the drying effect of foam cleanser.
As for the micro capsules feeling and the exfoliating feeling, it might because of the Microcrystalline Cellulose and salt presented in the cleanser.

It is called contour cleanser for reduces swelling for a defined face shape and improving blood circulation.  Skin does feel clean and it does remove even the felt eyeliner that I have drawn on as seen from the photos.  The cleanser has a pH of 7-8.  I can't really use it much because my skin apparently doesn't really like foam cleanser and synthetic fragrance.  My skin gets irritated from a lot of foam cleansers nowadays.

I don't really like Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser for my skin type.

Overall, Althea Bare Essentials Contour Cleanser is suitable for people who love foam cleanser, don't mind fragrance and doesn't have skin that is easily irritated like mine.
