REVIEW ON KLAIRS SUPPLE PREPARATION FACIAL UNSCENTED TONER VS KLAIRS SUPPLE PREPARATION FACIAL TONER

Hi beautiful,

Klairs has been gaining popularity with their Korean skincare products and one of their most popular product is the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner which has changed my mine about not using toner in my skincare routine.

Since I do have both of the toner, today I am doing a review and comparison on both of the toner . Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Unscented Toner vs Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner .

I bought the regular toner myself since I have been liking it and the unscented one is sent to me for review.

The before is taken nearer so it might look like my pores are biggerπŸ˜‚.  My skin is hydrated but it is not that tiny in that second photos.

Both of the toner has the stable vitamin C (antioxidant) in it so it does help to brighten the skin in the long run usage.

Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Unscented Toner is easier for me to use when my skin gets clogged and was breaking out from other products I was trying.  I mix it with some of other powdered products to soothe my skin and clear up the area.  I was also using the toner just as moisturiser with layering 3 layers of it in the morning which works out great too.  I live in hot humid area and have combination skin so a short routine in the morning keeps my skin happy especially when I am rushing in the morning.  It doesn't break me out.  It is also possible to use it with compressed mask mix with some of the centella powder and tea tree serum for hydrated and clearer skin.


As for the Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner, use it if your skin love essential oils that is presented inside this toner.  Not every skin is the same since some skin likes essential oils.  I find both of the toner equally hydrating.  However, the original toner might not be suitable if you are breaking out or purging from some other actives or you are using those actives.


Overall, Klairs Supple Preparation Facial Unscented Toner is a great hydrating toner for skin that doesn't like essential oils, love layering hydrating products or just for simple toner compressed mask.  I do like to use as toner mask which helps with soothing, balancing out the water and oil on my skin.

REVIEW ON ALTHEA BARE ESSENTIALS PRIMER WATER

Hi beautiful,

Althea which is the popular online K-Beauty shop has launched their own product called the Bare Essentials.  This new skincare line is called Bare Essentials for the short Korean routine that has been picking up trend since 2017 in South Korea.  Honestly, who has all the time for the 10 skincare steps?

All the other steps are just additional and nice great skin is the base for makeup.  So, here is the review on Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water.

Check out the review to see if this is the cheaper dupe of the famous Korean 'SP' water.

Both a hydrating toner and a primer in one, the Primer Water contains patented dewdrop technology (Macro Fluidic Dispersion technology) that gently fills the gaps between pores and allows hydration to penetrate deep within the layers of the skin. Made with Snow Lotus extracts, this skincare heavy hitter has an incredibly smooth and silky texture that enhances the skin’s natural glow, leaving you with the perfect canvas.

Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water
- Hydrates and preps the layers of the skin
- “Dewdrops” soften and improve suppleness
- Primer that smooths out unevenness

How to use: Pour out a small amount and gently patting in for better absorption.


Ingredients:
Water, Propanediol, Diphenylsiloxy Phenyl Trimethicone, Alcohol,1,2-Hexanediol, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Tromethamine, Betaine, Fructooligosaccharides, Saccharide Hydrolysate, Xanthan Gum, Ethylhexylglycerin, Pullulan, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Saussurea Involucrata Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Origanum Vulgare Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Sclerotium Gum, Agar, Polysorbate 20, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance



Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water comes in fancy frosted looking plastic bottle. I do like the minimalistic simple white box and bottle.    You can squeeze the bottle to make the product comes out easier.  The opening is also just suitable to dispense the toner.  The cap is the aluminium screw type which is great because it won't comes loose during travelling with your toner.

Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water has water as the first ingredients, there are solvents, emulsifier, plant extract and fragrance.  There isn't any coloring. Do check out if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.  Chia seed, centella asiatica, sugar, sage, German chamomile, rosemary, lavender, oregano, thyme and agar.  These plants ingredients are chosen for the calming, anti inflammatory and hydrating abilities.

Prebiotic sugars as in Fructooligosaccharides to heal and soothe skin conditions.

The scent is powdery floral scent.  The scent does become faint after 30minutes but it is still there (2 hours and above) but if one apply it a few layers the scent can be strong.  I am used to unscented and Korean medicinal scent so I am not really liking floral scent.  I do know that there are people who loves strong floral scent in their skincare though.

The texture comes out as viscous watery liquid.  It does absorbs fast into the skin and makes the skin hydrated as well as soft without the sticky feeling.

It is a hydrating toner with pH5-6 of so it is not a exfoliating toner.  One can also use it with compressed mask if you like hydrating milky mask.  It is also hydrating enough for the 7skin methods.

After using it for 3 weeks, I think it is a nice hydrating primer toner which is great especially for skin that tend to flakes during makeup.  It doesn't irritate the existing acne but it does not clear it up so I guess it is okay.

Overall,  Althea Bare Essentials Primer Water is nice hydrating toner for makeup, dry to normal skin type, doesn't have problem with the ingredients. It is not a toner for treating acne.

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.

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 πŸ˜‚ .

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

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 😍

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 😊

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.
