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 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.

FOOD REVIEW: I EAT A CARNIVOROUS PITCHER PLANT

Hi foodies,

Truly, Asia is a place with varieties of cuisine and food.  We have food that some find it hard to stomach.  Food ingredients such as sea cucumber is deemed as one of the greatest food for beauty and staying young but the looks may make some run to the nearest exit.

Today, I am eating carnivorous Pitcher plants lemang which looks more like lunch fit for Tarzan. I bought it to try for science and to show my love of Asian food 😅.  So if I don't have any new post after this, it means that I had probably died a horrifying death.  Honestly, who are not terrified after watching all those hungry gross plant eating horror movies and now eating one?????

Pitcher plant refers to species of Nepenthes and the Sarraceniaceae with about 170 species.  It is characterized by the pitfall traps which look like pitcher with a closure at the top.  It lures insects into the pitcher trap with sweet nectar and then drown the insect with the liquid which is called phytotelmata.  Yup, basically I am eating a bug trap plant.

Just like the Pokemon Victreebel and Bellsprout it is a genuinely terrifying looking thing. However, it recently became a really popular as one of the traditional dish served during Hari Raya Puasa(a festival) to replace Lemang which is a traditional food made of glutinous rice, coconut milk, salt which is cooked in a hollowed bamboo stick lined with banana leaves. It is also a food eaten by the Bidayuh in Sarawak.

I think the one I have here is the Nepenthes species. I am not sure how this one look like in reality since it would means I need to go deep into the tropical forest to hunt for one 😓😰 . That is if I am not abducted by some forest aliens or eaten by wild beasts first.

Anyway, here inside this cooked Pitcher plant glutinous rice lemang.  Hopefully this one has not become graveyard to too many insects or bugs.😰

Inside is the glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk and salt.  It is easily removed by just cutting it with a knife or I can just tear the skin out like a Hulk.

It tastes the same as glutinous rice with coconut milk wrapped with banana leaves.  If you served it to me without the pitcher plant, I won't even know that it is cooked inside this carnivorous plant.  The glutinous rice is delicious on its own and it would be even better with chicken curry. The glutinous rice is soft with smell of banana leaves.  There is no bitterness in it.  I would eat it again if I am able to find it again because it is a rare traditional food.  I do need those magic spell from Harry Potter to remove that particular strands of nightmare memories from watching too much plant eating human movies.

So, the next time you are in South East Asia and you are lucky to come across this pitcher plant glutinous rice is around, do try it out.  It is sure better than Durian which is another love of mine for those adventurous people out there.

I bought it for RM6 per pitcher plant depending on size.

Get healthy with Lynnity natural wellness and beauty supplement company.  😃  One cannot expect to have glowing beautiful skin with just placing emphasis on outwards appearance. Most of the time, skin problems such as acne actually stem from problem with the inner part of our body.  So it is important to look into what you consume as well.

With our busy life now, we don't really have the time to pay that much attention and consume enough essential nutrients for the health of our body.  So, to make up for it, we will try to include some supplement in our body.  Of course it is important to choose one using natural, safe and no synthetic preservative. I don't really like pills since it is hard so most of the supplement that eat to be part of my daily activities are powder that can be made into drinks because it is hard to bite 5 kg of different type of grains, vegetables and fruits to fulfill all the daily needs of our body.

DOES DERMAROLLING WORK? REVIEW ON DERMAROLLER BANISH ACNE SCARS KIT-XS PEN BANISHER &VITAMIN C ELIXER


Does dermaroller work? Horrifying dermaroller from Banish Acne Scars Kit-XS Pen Bainisher and vitamin C elixer for review today?

It is not news that I have acne prone skin and have been dealing with it all my life😭.  My blog is also partly one of the reason I started blogging besides practicing my English.  I know how it feels having low confidence and had tried so many acne methods including using gross stuff (don't want to think about it now)😵.

Although I don't have terrible acne scars now, I am still left with those dented scars (pits, box scars) which no topical products can help to get rid of.  I can't afford laser since I am just a poor working class person and definitely not famous enough to get free procedure treatments.

I told myself to just live with those dents until Daisy Jing from The Acne Channel offer to send me some products from the Banish line, I was so ecstatic about it😍.


I am really grateful for it is sent all over from US. Banish products are vegan and cruelty free. I am sorry it took me more than a year for this review since I really want to know how it works.

BANISH ACNE SCARS KIT-XS PEN BANISHER

So, here is the Banish Kit that I have received.

The kits come with Banisher, natural Vitamin C serum&container to disinfect your Banisher in it.


The Banish Kit contains:
-Vitamin C Serum
-Banisher (mine is the XS stamp pen)
-cleaning container
-storage bag.
- You need is isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or boiling water to clean the Banisher

Banisher: an applicator used to apply Banish's natural Vitamin C serum

M Banisher -For people who want to brighten, improve texture of their skin&reduce the appearance of blemishes. Use once every 1-2 weeks. Once every 2 week recommended for most people. Can be used on face or body.

XS Pen Stamp-This is if you have active acne to spot treat any problem areas. Use around active pimples.
Use once every 2 weeks if you have sensitive skin, or once a week for best results. Best when combined with Vitamin C Serum.

Do not use Banisher over Active Acne.  Avoid sun exposure while using the Banisher.
Do not use when on Accutane. Consult with your dermatologist before use if you are using a prescription based acne cream or medication.


Banisher is actually a dermaroller.  It works by creating micro channels in your skin which causes skin to repair itself and build new collagen fibers and when combined with the serum; it helps reduce scarring, wrinkles, and depletion of collagen in skin. It can help fade acne scars without resorting to laser treatment. Even if you do not have acne scars, the micro channels also let your skincare products absorb much deeper into skin to increase their effectiveness.

Review:  The titanium needles are actually very fine, well made and it doesn't cause me any pain.  I do like that I can use Banish XS pen stamp around my acne scars and not on the acne itself.  This avoid puncturing the acne or cause inflammation.  The scars heals better and doesn't leave any dented scars when I use this XS stamp right after the pimples pop.  I think it is good to prevent those dented scars or keloid scars which normally happens after the pimples disappeared.  It is not for huge dented scars but works better for new scars and prevent additional acne scars.  It does help with my skin texture to be more smooth since it helps the skin to absorb serum after that.

About:

-Reduce the appearance of age spots

-Relieves dry skin

This serum is:
-Vegan
-Paraben Free
-Natural
-No Preservatives

Directions: Apply 2-4 drops daily and pat onto clean skin. Best when used after the Banisher. Store in a dark cool area. 

Shelf life: 6 months Volume: 15 ml

Ingredients: 
Glycerin, 99.9% Pure Grade L-Ascorbic (Vitamin C) acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Certified Organic Filet of Aloe Vera), hamamelis virginiana extract (made from Certified Organic Witch Hazel) Ferulic Acid, Tocopherol (Vitamin E),Rosa Centifolia (Rose) Flower Water, Rosehip Oil, Grapefruit Seed Extract, citric acid.



Review: The dark glass bottle helps prevent oxidation.  Banish Vitamin C Serum has slight texture of gel.  It has the smell of rose.  I am actually allergic to the combination of rose with witch hazel but since the formulation of the ingredients is not high, it just cause me little feeling of itch. I only use it sparingly and each time of 2 to 4 drops.  It doesn't seems to absorb because the weather here has humidity of 90%.  Banish Vitamin C serum helps my skin to be smoother, nicely hydrated. less red and generally better.  The effect doesn't come instantly but after a month of usage.  It doesn't prevent acne but it works for acne scars, the skin texture and the tone of the skin.  The vitamin C is stable since 2 months passed and the vitamin C is still clear in colour =).

**Make sure you use a sunscreen and put Vitamin C serum in the fridge to lengthen the shelf life.

BANISH ACNE SCARS KIT-XS PEN BANISHER &VITAMIN C ELIXER
Banish Acne Scars Kit



Overall, I would say this Banish Acne Scars Kit is not a miracle for those looking for a One Day Miracle or get rid of acne forever without looking into your lifestyle and food😍.  I do like it that it helps to prevent acne scars, reduce existing acne scars, reduce my redness, make my skin smoother and helps with healing.  Moreover, their products are vegans, cruelty free and organic which is I think what most people are looking into.
It is just that you do need to have a clear expectation on not relying just on topical products for acne solution.  You do need to use a few products such as cleanser, sunscreen and a moisturiser to get rid of acne, protect your skin and not to undo the goodness of this Banish Acne vitamin C serum.


Product retails for,
The Starter Cleanser USD29
Vitamin C serum 15ml at USD 49
Pen Stamp USD49
Banish Kit USD75 (pen stamp+15ml vitamin C serum)

It leaves a slight glowing look if you pat it well into the skin.  Make sure to pat the cream well onto the skin unless you enjoy the 'wet' look on the skin.  The floral scent doesn't last that long on the skin since it disappeared once it dries up.  It does moisturise my skin and keep it hydrated without feeling greasy for more than eight hours.

As for the cooling feeling, it really depends on the temperature of your skin. I have tried it when my skin is flushing red so I can feel the slight cooling feeling for a few seconds.  There is no cooling feeling when my skin is on the normal temperature.

I think the huge jar can last me some time. I am just a bit lazy when it comes in jar since I have to decant it into another smaller jar for fear of contamination.

Overall, Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream is a nice gel moisturiser that is able to seal in all the products onto your skin so it works really great as night cream for combination or oily skin type.  It is also a nice addition of fermented, moisturising and is water based moisturiser.  Just do not expect this to get rid of acne since there isn't any 'strong' acne buster ingredients in there.
