[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

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] Round Lab 1025 Dokdo Toner

This is a new brand in the K-Beauty market that has gotten noticed and won several awards, that’s why I decided to try this one. So let me start to give my thoughts on this.

PACKAGING

It comes in a 200 ml clear plastic bottle with a flip cap and it has such a clean and simple packaging design. I really love this kind of packaging.

TEXTURE & SCENT

It has a watery texture which soak right into the skin without any noticeable fragrance. It is moisturizing enough to prep your skin for other products to layer on top of.

CLAIMS

The 1095 Dokdo toner is claimed to helps exfoliate and moisturize skin for healthy, dewy skin with comforts.

MY OPINION

After 4 months trying this product, I can say that it gives very good amount of moisture to my skin. This product also good for those with sensitive skin (like me).
It is a watery refreshing toner which does not leave any stickiness to your skin.
I am really in love with this toner and I will put this one into my favourite toner list.

REPURCHASE?

I will definitely repurchase and keep this on my skincare stash even while I am trying another toner. I even recommend this product for those of you with normal, combination and sensitive skin. You should at least give it a try.

[Review] Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Toner

Oh my God, it’s been two years since my last post and time really flies. I had so much things to handle and could not dedicated my time for doing a full skincare review, but I still doing my mini reviews on Instagram.
So I guess I will start my review with this Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Toner.
I always want to try this toner back then when I saw this in almost every K-beauty lover. But there are lots of other products I also want to try and I promised myself to only focus on one product for each skincare category.
Now, after I finished my so loved Round Lab Dokdo Toner, I decided to try this and here my thoughts on Acwell Licorice pH Balancing Cleansing Toner.

PACKAGING

IMG_20200703_231551
It comes in a brown plastic bottle with a flip on cap. I like their simple and slim bottle (most toner came with a big bottle).

SCENT & TEXTURE

It has a very watery consistency like any other toners. It also has a herbalish scent which I don’t really like.

CLAIMS

It claimed to be effectively balance your skin, add extra dose of luminosity to your complexion, help calm and reduce pigmentation (incl. acne scars and dark spots), also helps the rest of the products in your routine absorb better.

MY OPINION

From all of those claims, I feel like this toner indeed did a good job on balancing my skin and also give some kind of glowing factor. I don’t really know about reduce acne scars and dark spots since I don’t have any. And yes it helps rest of my skincare absorb better.
In conclusion no wonder this toner considered to be one of the best K-Beauty toner. They did a good job in delivering all of their claim.

REPURCHASE?

I won’t repurchase since I don’t really like the scent.

[Review] Neogen Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick

Hi, now I will review Neogen Real Fresh Green Tea Cleansing Stick. I choose this product because I was looking for a more solid and travel friendly cleanser and come up with this product.

I bought this for IDr 150.000 (USD 11.5) from one of local online shop via Instagram. Here are my review about this product.

I think the basic concept of this product is a travel friendly cleanser with a very deep cleansing result so you can skip a double cleansing method. Also worked as a gentle exfoliator with the green tea crush inside this cleansing stick.

IMPRESSION & OPINION

My first impression of the packaging is compact and travel friendly and it matches my searching criteria for a cleanser. Solid cleansing stick with a green transparent plastic container. I won’t be worried this product will spill.

The moment i read the direction of use, honestly I find it a bit awkward to apply the stick directly to my damp face. I think it is less hygienic. 

For a unscented skincare lover, I don’t like the strong scent of this cleansing stick.

Another annoying thing is it sting my eyes whenever I use this product, so I have to make sure I have been clean it completely with water before I open my eyes.

After using this product I feel my skin is very tight and I should directly apply a face mist, beauty water or hydrating toner after to maintain my skin moisture.

PROS & CONS

Pros : price relatively affordable, shape and packaging is travel friendly.

Cons : too strong scent to the point I annoyed with it, it makes my skin tight after using it, sting my eyes.

OVERALL RATING

🌟🌟🌟 (3/5)

REPURCHASE?

Nope. Too much cons for me, so I will try another cleanser.

[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.

My Daily Skin Care Routine

I’m going to share my daily skin care routine. I’m not a beauty expert, so what I’m going to do is just sharing and hope the post could help you.
I am one of those people who believe that maintain your skin since early age is very important.
I tend to be so loyal to one brand if I do really find the significant result in my skin using that product. I have been using Clinique since my first step to enter college (around year 2000) because it could make my acne prone skin turn into a very fine skin 😘,  and I continued to use it for 10 years. But after that I feel like my skin is getting used to it and didn’t get any great impact anymore, even my skin tend to dry and cracks. I do some research online and some people wrote that you couldn’t use the same skin care for a very long time.
Then I started to search for another skin care brand and nothing matched my skin. Either I had a red rash or just dry and cracked skin. One day, my good friend recommend me to try Laneige. Since I live in a full day aircon environment (office, car, house) then I gave it a try for the Laneige Water Bank Series and I loved it. So I continue to use it up until now (but I stil use some other brand that I already find matches my skin really well)
Here are my daily skin care routine :
Morning skin care routine :
  1. I wash my face with Laneige Foam Cleanser Moisture
  2. I continue to use Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner. The texture is quite similar with toner for those whose more familiar with western skin care.
  3. Laneige Water Bank Essence_EX
  4. Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream_EX. Laneige also having the gel variant but since my skin tend to be drier, so i choose the cream type.
  5. Shiseido SPF 30 Sun Block
 
For night skin routine is almost the same with the morning one, but I only take the sunblock out and add the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX to the list, apply it after cream.
Well, those are the basic skin care I daily put on my skin. Every skin is different so the skin care product also varies due to your skin type. I have a normal to dry skin but oily in my T-Zone.
Here is the snap of the skin care product I have mentioned above.
