Naruko Apple Seed Series Review

Sponsored Post

Anyeong~

I have been using Naruko Apple Seed Series (specially to target dark spots) for 5 months, I am using the complete range except for the facial cleanser. If you read my post on Naruko before, this product is parabean free, natural ingredients based and affordable. Beware that all Naruko products have authentic sticker that you can scratch and it will reveal a code that you can match from their website. I have been sponsored 5 products and had posted the review for all three products. You can read those reviews by browsing under label Naruko. 

Above 5 products I been using for 5 months

Naruko Apple series from left:

  1. Sheet Mask 
  2. Lotion
  3. Serum
  4. Moisturizer
  5. Night Gelly

I also will write review on the Naruko apple seed eye serum and BB cream soon, which I use along with above products. Overall I am satisfied with the performance of the apple series range, this series brightened my skin tone and improve the appearance of dark spots became lightened. However did the dark spots did not diminish. As you know dark spots only can lighten not diminish completely, unless you go for laser. So this product quite effective. The only thing down side of this product I found is that it is not moisturizing enough if you have dry skin. So you need to use better moisturizer to compliment with this product. 

I will buy this product again especially the Serum and Night Gelly. Have you tried Naruko products?

Yadah Vitamin Toner Review & Yadah Vitamin Emulsion Review

Sponsored Post

Anyeong~

I posted three Yadah products review earlier, these are all sponsored by Yadah and another two reviews today are about the Vitamin Toner and Vitamin emulsion.

Above products which sponsored by Yadah, I reviewed the Anti Bubble Cleanser, Collagen Ampoule and Brightening Ampoule


The packing with pump

The description behind in Korean

Close up on the description and ingredients

As I written on my previous posts regarding Yadah products, Yadah concept mainly using natural ingredients and the prices also affordable. 

Yadah Vitamin Toner RM49.00 for 80ml
Yadah Vitamin Emulsion RM49.00 for 80ml 
Available from www.yadahskincare.com or Sasa
Origin from Korea

Both content clear fluids which is not oily at all, have a very refreshing scent and easily absorb by skin. However the emulsion is not moisturizing enough for my skin so need to apply separate moisturizer. However I think this product is suitable for young skin like teenagers. 

What I like about this two products:
  • Natural ingredients
  • Non oily, refreshing and easily absorb by skin
  • Refreshing scent
  • Convenient pump
What I don't like about this two products:
  • Emulsion not moisturizing enough
I recommend this product for teenagers and young adults.

Nivea in Shower Intensive Skin Conditioner Review

Anyeong~

Did you notice the Nivea in Shower Intensive Skin Conditioner advertisement on TV lately? I believe Nivea brings us the 1st rinse off body lotion. In fact two in five people don't apply lotion as indicated by the result in a research done in Europe, this is due to most people do not have the time to wait for the lotion to dry off and the sticky feeling is uncomfortable especially in our hot and humid weather in Malaysia. As soon I noticed there is Nivea came out with this genius idea call in shower body lotion conditioner I went out to hunt for one and pleasantly surprise it only cost RM16.90 at Guardian, quite affordable right? Got two types, the white bottle one is for normal skin and the blue one for dry skin, I bought the blue one for my dry skin.


White bottle one as above, picture from venusbuzz since I don't have the photo for the white bottle



Bought the blue bottle with Almond Oil


Description on the bottle

Ingredients
A thoughtful caution message from Nivea on the lotion might cause slippery floor. So be careful yea! Wash off any residue on the floor after usage.

The Cap

Content white lotion like consistency


The scent is like typical Nivea lotion, as the description on the picture above, after shower gel and rinse off, rub on this lotion and rinse off. This is faster than applying lotion, great for modern women that leading a busy and hectic life; a quick fix solution to keep their skin moist and supple.

My 1st time with Nivea's rinse off body lotion I am quite skeptical and worried that this lotion might be oily since it has almond oil, however after rinsing the lotion off, it was like you just done rubbing lotion on your whole body and not oily at all. After drying my body, I immediately noticed my skin is softer, moist and supple.

What I LIKE about NIVEA in Shower Intensive Skin Conditioner
  • Quick fix to lotion my skin
  • Keep skin moist, supple and soft


What I DON'T LIKE about NIVEA in Shower Intensive Skin Conditioner

  • No convenient pump
  • The moisturizing effect don't last throughout the day.

Yadah Brightening Ampoule Review

Sponsored Post

Anyeong~

Yay! Here is another review from Yadah product (origin from Korea), it's called Yadah brightening ampoule. I am a fan of Yadah mainly due to their products based on natural ingredients, parabean free and affordable.

Product Profile
Product Name: Yadah Brightening Ampoule
Origin: Korea
Content: 30ml
Price: RM65.00
Available: www.yadahskincare.com or sasa




I have been using this product for one and a half month now. Description on the packing this product highly enriched with vitamins and other herb extracts to control pigmentation. keep face clear and bright, improve skin troubles. 




The packing in the bottle with pump which is hygienic, one pump is enough to cover my whole face, the scent is refreshing and nice, the clear  serum easily absorb into skin, not oily at all. It is important to use a brightening serum that control melanin production especially if you live in a hot weather environment. This is the main reason why I like this product, prevention is always better the cure. If you ask whether this product lighten dark spots, I would say usually if you aim to lighten dark spots, you need to use any given product at least 3 months to see the result, as usually skin renewal takes about 28 days per circle. Thus visible result usually need to wait longer especially dark spots. 

What I like about this product:
  • Based on natural ingredients, parabean free
  • Light, easily absorb by skin and non oily
  • Control melanin production thus prevent dark spots

What I don't like about this product:
  • None at the moment

Happy new year 2014! This is my very first post in 2014 and this post will rundown 2013 best beauty products. These are the best my most loved products of the last 12 months in random order.




Best hydrating mask, but I didn't use as sleeping mask due to  mask sticking on my pillow, just rub on thick layer on skin for few hours while resting at home will hydrate skin really well. Affordable RM50.90 for 50ml and gel base, awesome!



Best soapless cleanser RM56.05 for 200ml it makes skin matte, supple and bright. Suitable for oily or acne prone skin.



This is the best bubble cleanser ever! Love it, it makes my skin feel super clean and also supple at the same time. Further more it is parabean free and based on natural ingredients. RM69 for 150ml must try this product if you haven't. 



This is another quality product from Yadah which based on natural ingredients, moisture skin and provide collagen to skin, prevention is definitely better than cure. RM65 for 30ml, I am already into my second bottle now. 



This is the best cleanser & mask product ever! Only RM29 for 120ml I have no complain. So love this product definitely will re-purchase after finishing this tube. Also based on natural ingredients and parabean free.  

There you have it, I can't believe only 5 star products for 2013 list. Look forward for 2014. More reviews coming soon. Anyeong~
