I will soon write reviews for a few awesome Naruko skincare products which I am using over 3 months now. Before I go into individual review for those products, I figured it would be a good start to have a post to introduce Naruko skincare. Naruko is:

This is Niu-Er, the mandarin character above quoted from Niu-Er saying:
 "The result from the bottle is far more important than the packaging; and the inner layer of skin is far more important than that of the outer appearance"

  • Niu-Er spent 20 years studying & researching skincare ingredients and 7 years developing product, as a result Naruko was born. 
  • In his home country Taiwan, he appeared in countless TV programs. Everyone refers him as "Beauty King"
  • The name Niu-Er has been voted #5 on 2006 Taiwan Yahoo top 10 shopping brands, surpassing well known international brands such as SONY and APPLE.

Neogence C+ Brightening Renewal Gel Mask Review

Sponsored Post

I received this mask from Neogence a few months back and have been using this mask lately. Of all type of mask, my favorite would be gel type of mask, I found gel mask achieve better result in moisturizing skin, refreshing and leave skin supple. As simple intro of this product below:

Product Profile

Name: Neogence C+ Brightening Renewal Gel Mask
Price: USD45  for 150ml
Made in: Taiwan
Available at: Sasa and other beauty outlets

The packing

The main function of this mask is whitening. Description about this mask: 
The mask is concentrated treatment composite 3 in 1 brightening formula. This formulated mask soaks into skin to awaken its radiance, it repair and whiten skin. The Hyaluronic acid + chamomile extract moisturize and energize skin. It can intensively irrigate and improve brightness skin. The ingredients mainly  composite of Dermawhite complex which can whiten skin, Complex Vitamin C that deters the formation of melanin, Hyaluronic acid + chamomile which moisturizes, soothe and energizes skin. 

With safety seal

This product is from their whitening range C+, from this range they also have the whitening lotion, eye gel and sheet mask etc. 

The gel mask in clear white color

The direction and ingredients stated on the packing

How to use this mask?
After cleansing face, apply as thick layer on face, then rinse off after 15-20 minutes.
This mask can be used as overnight mask as well, just apply a thick layer evenly on face after skin care routine before bed, then rinse in the morning. 
I prefer to use after cleansing as it gets a bit messy to use as overnight mask. 

My experience:
My skin looks brighter after using this mask but the brightness does not last long - the obvious brightness only last for a few hours; I believe need to continuously and diligently use for long term result. I believe whitening take time to stay, thus as long as you are diligent in keeping the skin care routine you will see the result. Skin feels moist and supple. The scent is light which is good, I really hate strong scented skin care products. I rate this mask 4/5.

What I like about this mask:
  • Brighten dull skin
  • Deeply moisturizing and sooth skin, leaving it supple and soft
What I don't like about this mask:
  • Kinda expensive

Avene Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Creme Review

I purchased Avene Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Creme during promotion two months ago in SASA. Original price RM89.00, SASA was having 10-15% discount at that time. Avene is a well known formulated specially for sensitive skin. The two things that attractive about this product are its hydrating skin and having SPF at the same time. 

The packing

RM89.00 (40ml)

Description on the packing


The cream is light and in white

This is a day cream with SPF 20 and oil free, great for oily skin. I don't see parabean in the ingredients so it is a plus point. The scent is the same as other avene products. 

What I like about this product:
  • SPF 20
  • Oil free
  • Hydrating skin
  • Matte finish
  • Made for sensitive skin

What I don't like about this product:
  • Quite pricey - only 40ml
  • In white thus did not provide coverage for minor flaws unlike BB cream

Overall this is a good day cream especially when you just hanging out indoor and don't need high SPF coverage which usually oilier.

30ml in bottle packing

Yadah Collagen Ampoule cost around RM65.00 (30ml). Last about 3 months, depends on how much and how often you use. I use it twice daily after toner. You can buy this from

Included with dropper, the serum is in clear color

The scent of this collagen ampoule is really refreshing and relaxing, I don't know how to describe it but it is really soothing. The consistency of the serum is not too thick nor too thin, just nice and easily absorb by skin. Before using this, I have visible fine lines between my eyebrows and also laugh lines. After using this ampoule, it is still there but less visible and my skin also slightly firmer. Mainly I use this product to prevent skin aging, as they says prevention is better than cure. 

What I like about this product:
  • Nice scent
  • Natural ingredients
  • Fine lines less visible
  • Firmer skin
  • Not oily, easily absorb by skin
  • Prevent skin aging

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

Overall this is a good aging prevention serum, I rate this item 5/5. This is one of my 2013 favorites.
