Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water: All-round cleansing water with molecule finer than water for Nano cleansing

On the day I drove to Penang, I received an email from Dr. Jart+ informing me that there is a new product in the market and if I would like to try it out. But, I thought Dermaclear Micro Water was launched not long after my first encounter with the product back in August 2014? A few days after I came back to KL, I realized I had forgotten to reply the email and I’ve exceeded the product collection date lol. I’m glad I’m still able to get a bottle to try out because this might just be the product that changed my whole perception and acceptance on the whole cleansing water craze.

Getting back to as why Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water was only brought in now and not last year. Well, Dr. Jart+ told me that the time I had my first hand on the product (August 2014) was just a preview on new product line-up. It is only April 2015 that Dr. Jart+ brought the product into Malaysia and sell it officially 🙂

A’kin Rose & Geranium Pure Facial Creamy Cleanser & Toner: A 3-in-1 product to remove makeup, cleanse and tone

As a part of my journey into a more natural skin care products, I thought it only make sense if I were to use equally natural product to remove my makeup as well. I have the perfect product for quite a few months now. Recently I’ve been trying out this A’kin Rose & Geranium Pure Facial Creamy Cleanser & Toner, a best seller in the A’kin range to remove my face makeup as well as to cleanse and tone at the same time.

Antipodes Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser: A pretty decent gel cleanser for everyday use that smells good too

I probably have no sane idea how this Antipodes Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser review will turn out because when I’m typing all this out, I’m high on flu, sore throat and fever medication. Oh yes, it’s a deadly combination of sickness. I spent the whole of Saturday and Sunday on bed covered with two blankets, a jacket and fleece socks on. Let’s hope this review turns out fine *fingers crossed*

I still remember that I got this cleanser right before Chinese New Year this year. It has been sitting in my beauty stash for months before I took it out to use two months ago. For some reason I took a longer time to determine if I like an all natural product or not as to compare with other skin care range. That is because on my skin, natural product takes a longer time to work.

Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash: A foaming gel cleanser for normal to oily skin type. Perfect for double cleansing as well

This is by far the toughest review I ever need to type out. No, not because the product is bad or whatsoever but my skin is in a state where everything is a-okay for me. That explains the delay in posting up the review by July. I told myself today that no matter what, I got to tell you about Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash.

Kiehl's Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash
True story – everytime I step into a Kiehl’s store, I tend to stand in front of Calendula Herbal Toner for a very long time, grabbing the bottle, tilting the bottle upside down numerous times, admiring the floating Marigold flower petals. Did you know that the Marigold flower petals are all hand-picked and placed into each and every bottle by hand? It’s just so pretty. The prettiest and unique toner I’ve ever seen. It is also because of the iconic Calendula Herbal Toner that Kiehl’s came out with Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash, a gentle and paraben-free face wash for normal to oily skin type, which makes a great pair to the toner.

Oxy Oil Control Charcoal Face Wash: Prolonging the oil-free state of the face for a little bit longer

Interestingly, when I attended one beauty sharing session last year, one of the attendee said that her face oils up very fast. She commented that every time after she wash her face, not even half an hour later she can feel a layer of sebum forming and that irks her a lot. I think what this girl experienced is pretty normal even for normal skin, unless you are the one that stays in air-conditioned room 24/7. Perhaps what this girl need is the new Oxy Oil Control Charcoal Face Wash.

Oxy Oil Control Charcoal Face Wash
Oil Control Charcoal Face Wash is Oxy’s latest family member that is formulated with Pharmaceutical Grade Charcoal from Japan. Charcoal have always remain as the biggest mystery and it has been an unsung hero, until of late. It is now widely known for it’s various benefits especially in the beauty industry. The charcoal added will act as an effective agent to clean pores, absorb excess oil as well as to purify skin so that skin will stay clear and shine-free. The same activated charcoal ingredient also act as a magnet on the skin to suck, capture and lift all the dirt, impurities from environmental pollution and excess oil.
