Type Kirsh is a special fashion items made with collaboration with Kirsh, a women's apparel brand that represents young people with new observation and creation.

Abib Hand Creme Type Kirsh Fragrant Tube comes in a minimalistic white box complete with printing in silver colours which is really beautiful.

The Kirsh scent is of white iris and cold spicy.  There are scent of gaillac and cedarwood which is refreshing delicate.  To me it smells like fresh spicy clothes from laundry.

The ingredients such as sweet almond oil, coconut oil, macadamia seed oil, shea butter, purslane, moringa pterygosperma seed oil, vitamin E, ceramide NP and glycerin are really great for for healing, hydrating and moisturising dry skin especially during winter or rough hands.

The packaging of the hand cream is really very pretty and fashionable 😍.  The aluminium tube comes in a hygiene for with a chick bright pink.  The opening is just nice and it is sealed off at first so you can break it with the cap before start using it.

The opaque cream comes out as a very light soft cream that absorbs fast into the skin. It doesn't leave the hands sticky which is nice.  The hands are lightly scented with refreshing scent.

Overall, Abib Hand Creme Type Kirsh Fragrant Tube is a nice hydrating hand cream suitable as fashion items, gift and for protecting the hands leaving it soft and hydrated.

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,

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 Smoothing Exfoliating Powder
The Herb Farm Rejuvenating Facial Toning Mist
The Herb Farm Nourishing Rose Face Cream

The Herb Farm is founded in 1993 by Herbalist Lynn Kirkland, who is the pioneer of natural skincare industry.  The products are developed by the founder using traditional herbal knowledge and the latest innovations with 100% natural products in rural New Zealand, using own organically grown herbs for the most authentic, ethical and true-to-nature skincare products.

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.

From the left: The Herb Farm Nourishing Rose Face Cream(pink) The Herb Farm Smoothing Exfoliating Powder πŸ’– (light green)

2. The Herb Farm Smoothing Exfoliating Powder πŸ’– (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.

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.

7 FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN

Hi gorgeous,

Here is finally a post on 7 favourite ingredients for acne prone skin that I have tested and use it to help clear my skin.  I have combination (t-zone oily, normal on other place), acne prone skin that is prone to redness.

The ingredients recommended here are ingredients that I have been using and some I had used for more than 3 years.  Still, there isn't one single ingredients that work with every skin type so do your research, test it on a small part of your face for at least 3 days first and don't try everything on your face all at once.

There are some people that are allergic with tea tree, some with BHA and some with neem so do your research too😊.

Also I didn't include azealic acid, tretinoin, BHA or snail inside this. The reason being I have not tried the products to talk about it(azealic acid&tretinoin) , have not met products that work (BHA) or the ingredient is not meant to clear acne. (snail is for healing&hydration).



1.  Centella Asiatica
Centella asiatica, gotu kola, tiger grass, pennywort -7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Centella asiatica

Centella asiatica has a lot of names from gotu kola, tiger grass (the tiger heal by rolling on it), pennywort.  The component arrived from it are called Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid.  So, the name with Cera, madecossine probably has their star ingredient as centella asiatica.

Centella Asiatica is 2017/2018 popular ingredient for calming the skin and acne.
I like centella asiatica in high concentration as it is actually a very mild ingredient and one would probably not see the effect if the centella asiatica is not high up on the ingredient list.  Centella asiatica in topical form is to calm the redness, fasten the healing and reduce scarring.  It doesn't have antibacterial or antifungal ability so so you need to pair it up with another ingredient that can clear those acne.

Centella asiatica is great for those that cannot use any sort of strong actives since most actives can burn the skin leaving it more prone to breakouts and sensitivity.  One can wear it during the day since it doesn't have intoxication report.  The plants itself can be consumed ☺ (I drank it fresh without sugar before for science but I would not recommend it- my stomach flip itself 😣. It is better cooked or in smoothies)

Centella asiatica has been one of the to go ingredients when my skin is raw and red from the acne breakouts and testing of products.

Recommendation:
iunik tea tree relief serum
Chica Y Chico Tota 3.0
ALIVE:LAB Centella Dressing Powder



2. Neem


Neem-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Neem


Neem is one of the ingredients that works for my skin.  Neem is not for pregnant or breastfeeding mother since it has some sort of birth control ability in it.  It works for people with hormonal acne and also for fungal acne. Combine it with some other ingredients, it just clear up the fungal acne that otherwise just stay and spread on my face.
I prefer the powder form since it doesn't have the stinky smell of the neem oil.  I consume the powder if I have no time to apply it on my face. The powder can be consumed since it is from the leaves. Don't consume the neem oil because it is poisonous.
If you have hormonal acne, neem is great to help regulate the hormone and acne. It is a natural birth control in the past. As for male, it is best not to consume it but use it topically.

Recommendation: Himalaya Neem powder
                              Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash (for combination skin)



3. Ginger& turmeric
Ginger-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Ginger

Ginger is great as a tea item and for food to deal with cold and inflammation.  Drinking ginger tea with a little turmeric help with acne and to warm up the body.  Some people find that their skin clear up with turmeric mask but be careful as it can dye your skin yellow and you will look weird.
For female, drink it on your monthly to help to warm up your body to reduce those cramps.

However, avoid ginger if you are having sore throat or migraine because of the heat.

Recommendation: Vicco turmeric cream



4. Mandelic Acid (AHA)


Mandelic acid-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Mandelic acid

Mandelic acid is one type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA).  It is made from bitter almonds.  It is recommended for acne prone because it is anti bacterial, the weakest exfoliating acid if you count by the exact percentage of concentration, increase skin cell turnover rate and gently removing dead skin cells.

Mandelic acid that is 5%- to 10% is made for daily use on every skin type.  It is best to use it daily at night to exfoliate the skin and accelerate the skin healing process at night.

Mandelic acid that is 20% is strong and should only be use twice or thrice in a month since you need a lot of healing time after that.  Remember to use hydrating product after the 20% mandelic acid else the skin can burn.  Don't combine it with other strong AHA, BHA, retinol or vitamin C on the same day as that is risking your skin to damage skin.

If you wanted AHA for your acne prone, try a mandelic acid first before trying other AHA because most people report back that it is easier to use mandelic acid and many see results of smaller pores, cleanser pores and lesser acne after they start using mandelic acid.

Recommendation:
By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water


5. Tea tree

Tea tree( Melaleuca alternifolia) -7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Tea tree( Melaleuca alternifolia) 

Tea tree
( Melaleuca alternifolia) is a popular ingredients in topical products for acne prone skin.  It is a common ingredients found in products for oily and combination skin.  Do not apply pure essential oil on the skin because it will burn the skin, trigger the skin to produce more oil and cause more irritation to the acne.  Now, tea tree water appears more in combination with other ingredients to calm the skin and be more gentle on the skin. Essence and serum that is made for acne usually use tea tree water to provide the benefits of antiseptic and gentle at the same time.

There are some people that develop allergic to tea tree products but then not everyone does.  Tea tree oil product is antiseptic and antibacterial but then it doesn't work for fungal acne or hormonal acne.

Tea tree oil is not for consumption as it is toxic so only use it for external application.  Sheet mask containing low amount of tea tree oil is great to calm the skin and treat the skin.

Recommendation: Naruko tea tree night gelly
                              Thursday Plantation tea tree oil (do not use it directly undiluted)
                              Aiken tea tree oil (local brand)


6. Green Tea

Green tea (camellia sinensis)-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Green tea (camellia sinensis)

Green tea (camellia sinensis) is also one of my favourite ingredients for drinking since warm Japanese sencha always calm my skin. It is also one of cheapest ingredients for DIY sheet mask with compressed mask from Daiso.  However, it is not recommended to drink it for during the time of the month especially if you tend to have stomach cramp since it is 'cooling' .  Avoid green tea if you are someone with low iron since green tea reduce the ability to absorb iron.

If you do not have such problem, green tea has antioxidant to help with skin acne caused by eating too much heat food or lack of sleep.

However, it is a gentle ingredients mostly for calming.  So, it is nice to use green tea as face mask or look for products with high concentration of green tea.

Recommendation: Japanese green tea
                              Isn tree green tea toner
                              TonyMoly The Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Cream (sorry have not try this one)
                              Nacific Fresh Green tea seed serum (the original name is Natural Pacific) (wish to                                                                                                try this one soon πŸ™ )


7.  Mugwort
Mugwort-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Mugwort

Mugwort is know as Artemisia vulgaris or an ingredients which looks like weed. It is usually cooked or eaten as a dish for female cramp since it provides heat to the body.  If one find that their stomach area becomes cold, then this is a good dish to eat.

There is a scent to it so it is also used to repel insect and moth.  In skincare, it is anti inflammatory, antiviral and insecticidal.  

It is not recommended if one have hypertension since it increased more blood flow and frequency of migraine.  Digesting the oil is not recommended as it is toxic in the long term.

Recommendation: Hanyul Artemisia fresh calming water (hope to try this one soonπŸ™)




Some of the first bottle are sent for review with no obligation, I bought the other skincare products myself. However, the opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.
