[Review] The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Makeup Remover For Eye & Lip

Yesterday night I emptied my eye & lip makeup remover from The Face Shop and realized that I never share my thoughts on this one before.
I chose this one because I heard good reviews about this rice water series from The Face Shop. I always use an eye & lip makeup remover by the way before doing my double cleansing at night since I always feel that the cleansing oil or balm could not cleanse the eyeliner and mascara perfectly.

PACKAGING

The makeup remover comes in light pink plastic bottle with a black cap. The bottle’s design and size is really handy and perfect for travelling.

TEXTURE & SCENT

It has two to three layers of texture inside from watery, oily and milky textures so we need to shake this first before use.
There is a light fragrance which is pleasant even for my sensitive nose.

CLAIMS

This two-phase, dual-action makeup remover gently removes makeup from the eyes and lips. Formulated with Rice Extract, it leaves skin feeling moisturized.

MY OPINION

It effectively removes makeup, but for waterproof eyeliner and mascara, I need to hold the wet cotton pad for seconds before wiping it off.
What I like from this remover is that it doesn’t leave an oily residue cast after use like any other eye makeup remover I’ve tried before.
Overall I love and satisfied with this remover. I will definitely put this on my favourite.

REPURCHASE?

Yes I would definitely repurchase this one.

[Review] Purito Defence Barrier pH Cleanser

This is my second Purito purchase after the Comfy Water Sun Block. I bought this because, first, I’ve been really curious of Purito and want to try their products more and more. Second, because it stated pH cleanser.

PACKAGING

It comes in a white plastik tube. Like most of Purito product, the packaging design is also simple and clean.

SCENT & TEXTURE

IMG_20200712_170103
It has a clear gel texture for all skin type, but since they stated it is a pH neutral, so I assumed it will be perfect for people with sensitive skin.
This product does not contain artificial fragrance but there are stong medicinal scent.

CLAIMS

It claims to be a mild product with a pH of 5.5, the skin most comfortable pH for skin health which provide rich moisturizing and cleansing experience.
They stated that they strong points are excellent cleansing, comfortable and refreshing with minimal foaming that protects the skin barier, made from safe ingredients, and ensure rapid relief of skin dryness and deep moisturizing.

MY OPINION

It is a gentle cleanser that doesn’t strip my skin at all. But since it is a gentle cleanser, I dont really feel that this one takes away dust pretty good. When I use toner after even the double cleansing, I still find dirt or dust left on my cotton pad.
As for scent, I don’t really like the medicinal scent. I am getting used to it now, but still don’t like the smell.

REPURCHASE?

Overall, I like this cleanser, but I don’t think I will repurchase it solely because of the scent, but the rest is okay for me.

[Review] Olivarrier Skin Barrier Dual Moist Comfort Cream

I did not really pay attention on this brand before, but one day I really need a light but provide deep moist cream. I searched for recommendation online and get to know this Olivarrier Dual Moist Cream.
Currently I’m using it on rotation with some other creams. Here are my thoughts on this cream.

PACKAGING

PicsArt_07-04-10.29.25
This cream come with a tall and slim plastic tube. Nothing special from the packaging, but I do really like their slim and compact design, also how they keep the packaging design simple with only use two tone colours of white and grey.

SCENT & TEXTURE

PicsArt_07-04-10.34.06
This cream contains expert ratio of both moisture and oil to keep skin perfectly hydrated and balanced.
It said the lightweight texture is fresh like a gel, but provides deep and long-lasting moisture like a heavy cream.
It also an unscented cream which is a really plus point for me.

CLAIMS

It claimed to have relieve dryness and restore elasticity and helps soothe stressed skin.

MY OPINION

For me the cream works like the claims. It provides long lasting moisture. Even after I wash my face with water before prayer, the moisture is still there.
For those with a dry, combination and sensitive skin, the cream would be perfect.
The fact that it does not have any scent is a really big plus points.
I need to apply it by patting it on my face and makes sure your prior skincare (toner, essence or serum) are fully absorbed before you put this, because it leaves white cast if you put it on a damp skin.

REPURCHASE?

I don’t think so. This is a good product, but I need to find another cream that will sattisfied me more.

[Review] Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Borabit Ampoule

Hello, it’s been months since my last post. I’ve been busy preparing the hotel for upcoming holiday but here I am today reviewing one of most possitive reviewed K-Beauty products out there : Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Borabit Ampoule.

I always want to try this product long long ago but gathering all the possitive and negative review of it then come up with the decision to give it a try.

PACKAGING

It is dark purple pipette glass bottle packed in a dark purple box. The packaging colour and design is giving an exclusive impression even though I am not a fan of dark purple color.

SCENT & TEXTURE

It is a light consistency with light brown with no significant scent make it easy to layered with another products.

WHAT IT CLAIMS?

Anti aging serum to brighten and smooth aging skin.

MY OPINION

I have a hight expectation on this product since lots of possitive feedbacks about this, but up until I finished the bottle, I don’t really find any significant result on this.

The plus point is the lightweight consistency, while for brightening effect I dont really see any result. Indeed it smoothen my face a little but only I use this twice a day for morning and evening skincare routine while they called it a night repair.

REPURCHASE?

No. I will try another product since I am sure there are products with better performance and affordable price out there.

[Review] SKINFOOD Bitter Green Clay to Foam

Today I’m going to review one of the best cleanser I’ve been using : Skinfood Bitter Green Clay to Foam. For me my best ranking cleanser should be at first does not stripped my face. That is the most important for me.

So let’s get started.

PACKAGING

I’m in love with the color of their packaging once I saw it online and make a rush decision to give it a try. The green color feels relaxing for me. It reflects the ingredients of the foam, which is contains of 5 main ingredients : wheat sprout, kale, celery, broccoli, and cabbage as mentioned on their packaging.

I bought this online from a local online shop and get a IDR 150.000 price (USD 11.5).

ABOUT THE PRODUCT

As I search on the internet, SKINFOOD’S Bitter Green Clay to Foam contains Amazonian clay to absorb pore-clogging impurities. It said to be quicker than a mask and more thorough than a foaming cleanser. 

TEXTURE & SCENT

The texture more like a clay mask. But it turns into bubbles after we put some water.

I like how it smell so refreshing with a proper amount of scent so it doesn’t bother me as an unscented skincare lover.

MY OPINION

There are several possitive points I give to this product. I like how Korean product (including this one) could provide you a good quality with a very affordable price. This cleanser clearly does no strip my face and I give a very high point for this. Even though there’s a slight scent it does not bother at all. As a second cleanser after a cleansing oil, I feel that this product have a good cleansing task. My skin feels very soft after I apply this product. It feels lightweight, non greasy and soothing. 

I try to search for the cons or the negative point but I could not find one. So I’m going to skip.

RATING

🌟🌟🌟🌟 (4.5/5)

REPURCHASE?

Yes definitely. 

[Review] Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream

Hi! Welcome to mamihika.com. I would like to review one of famous Korean skincare product : Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream. I just tried this product now because I was very loyal to one US skincare brand I’ve been using since year 2000 in the point I don’t want to try another skincare product. But since the last 5 years I start to open my heart for other brands and products. Some was a hit and some was a miss. 

I was interested in trying this product because some of beauty blog site recommend this product as one of the best Korean skincare cream. There are lots of possitive reviews about this product, so I give it a try. I bought this product for IDR 205.000 (USD 16) in a local online shop. Here is my review on Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream.

FIRST IMPRESSION

Amber glass jar with black cap covered with an orange metallic box as its packaging. I don’t really like the box since it makes the product look cheap. But I find the amber glass jar makes the product looks expensive. For those who like to travel or having an active kids like me, this is quite troublesome.

I don’t really pay attention on every ingredients of my skincare so I also won’t discuss it detail here. I just know from my browsing activity about this product before decided to buy it that it contains 92% snail extracts. Imagining part of snail touch my skin is a little bit awkward at first. But since I try not to imagine anything and just try it, I find it normal now.

This product has been said hydrates, helps improve the appearance of fine lines, and helps reduce the appearance of acne scarring and blemishes. Ideal for oily and acne-prone to combination skin types.

MY THOUGHTS

I like how light the texture is (more like milky gel than cream). This product is unscented and it is definitely an added value for me.

But the cons are : i did’t see a significant impact in my skin, even after two weeks of usage, I feel my skin tend to be dryer. I have stop and reapllied it, but the same thing occurs. My skin got drier.

I think you need to add another hydrating cream after you apply this product 

RATING

🌟🌟🌟 (3/5)

REPURCHASE?

Nope. I definitely going to try another product that feels more suitable for my skin.
