Sunplay Skin Aqua Uv Watery Essence SPF50+

I’m back with another product review which is a sunscreen. My last review is about a moisturizer lotion from Olay brand, you can read the review Olay Moisturising Lotion Review. I never wrote any specific review of sunscreen before though I’m already used a few bottles of sunscreen like Biore and Aiken (all time favorite sunscreen), because I quite not good enough to write about a sunscreen. But whatever it is, today I encourage myself to write about Sunplay Skin Aqua Uv Watery Essence SPF50+.

Bought this sunscreen during Guardian All Skincare Brands 40%, this Sunplay Skin Aqua UV Watery Essence retails for RM40.00 and it contains about 50ml of sunscreen. But I got it around RM32.00 as I can remember, more cheaper than the original price :-]

My Experience With The Sunscreen :
As you can see above, this Sunplay sunscreen comes with drop-dead gorgeous light blue color packaging and has a white twisted cap. Simple and beautiful packaging, actually.

Nothing important to me than the texture and finishing of the product including this Sunplay Skin Aqua Uv Watery Essence SPF50+. Don’t ever expected this sunscreen will have a watery texture as the name, despite the fact that the named, this sunscreen have a gel-like texture. Thumb up to Sunplay with this spreads easily sunscreen which makes me happier to use it.

Before purchase, I’ve made sure to testing on my hands. With the yellow-ish in color, it doesn’t matter at all as long as it’s not leaving any whitecast on and without any weird smell from the sunscreen, I’m happily purchased and bring it home then put them on my face. With the lighter texture than Biore Aqua Rich, which is why I liked it so much when I first tried it. It absorbs fast and doesn’t make my skin feels greasy, with no whitecast detected, plus it hydrates well.

But, here we go, I noticed that when I applied for the second layer, it started pilling. I don’t know how to stop it from pilling so it makes me feel frustrated and angry at the same time. Not forget to mention about when I tried to put on makeup after sunscreen, it’s totally quite not good. It mentions that goes on smooth under makeup but I think BIG NO NO NO. It’s doesn’t go very well under makeup, for sure.

So, there’s it is, my review. I hope you will read it fine and if you have any questions regarding to the sunscreen, feel free to contact me.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH THIS PRODUCT :

It doesn’t break me out and I’m sure how much you guys know how the feelings when you got a moisturizer that suits your skin very well. My skin type is combination/normal, for your information. It absorbs right into the skin and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling. I’m hardly to get a right moisturizer for my skin, some of them made my face feels greasy and some of them really does nothing which makes me displeased.

It’s claims to 100% fragrance and color-free but I think there’s still have a fragrance in this moisturizer, not so heavy ones just a nice one. But I still continue using it since my skin can tolerable with fragrance, but if your skin sensitive to the fragrance, please avoid it.

I bet some of you may know that there’s a lot of good moisturizer out there, contains good ingredients with the affordable price (some of them quite expensive) but not so hygienic. I mean by not so hygienic is they’re in there jar. I prefer moisturizer in the tube or bottle, so this one got my attention.

  • Contains paraben

So, there is it. I hope you’re get a kick out of this Olay Moisturising Lotion review. If you are in need to get a new moisturizer to make sure your skin soft, please buy it. You can get it here.

Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion

Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion. A Mild exfoliation leaving skin soft & smooth

Does it? Read on.

I started using skincare product from this famous Japan brand, Hada Labo by bought Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion as my chemical exfoliate.

I bought this lotion on October 2018, exactly, it’s last year but I just made the review for it. This lotion it not a typical lotion as we know because Japanese people call a toner as ‘lotion’ so don’t be confused. Not a regular toner too. It is a chemical exfoliate toner.

Why I bought it? I always on twitter and follow @twt_kecantikann (follow them https://twitter.com/twt_kecantikann) and then, I don’t remember who asked Kak Iman Abdul Rahim through Twitter about this lotion and I excited about it.

First, because I really want to try chemical exfoliate because I’d never used it before and a lot of people out there said chemical exfoliate is better than physical exfoliate. But as you know, chemical exfoliate divided into two, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) and Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA). You can refers here what’s this.

My skin type is combination, and I want to have a clear skin by get rid of the dullness, whiteheads, blackheads, acne scars, my uneven skin tone. Not forget about clogged pores. So I got confused which one I should use. I don’t want to use both AHA and BHA because it quite pricey for me 😌.

PACKAGING :

The 170g Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion comes in a classic and simple transparent plastic squeezy bottle, so it’s really easy to use, sanitary and very transportable.

TEXTURE / COLOR / SCENT :

This lotion have a texture like a mineral water or maybe a little bit thicker than water. I found it quite sticky when I pour over my hand, but as it was a chemical exfoliate, of course I used it with facial cotton on my face.

As it claims, it free from colorant, so of course it colorless but I think it scent similar to a glue. Totally smell like glue. But I don’t think it will be a problem for me. I don’t know about you, maybe you’ll think it’s quite annoying.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH MILD PEELING LOTION :

Now let’s get to know my experience as a beginner to chemical exfoliate by using this toner.

I started using it once a week, nothing happened to my skin which is made me thinking ‘Oh it’s good’. Then I decided to used twice a week. That is when the nightmarishly come to me.

I’m already go through purging when use it. On my jawline. It not that bad. Typically, I’ll happily squishing my pimples like old times and absolutely got a scars on my face. My mom also asked me why I have a lot of small pimples on my jawline. I just stayed quiet.

Just to let you know that when I started using Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion, my skincare routine is not strong enough so that why I had purging when I use it. That times I only started using sunscreen not even a month, that’s it.

I decided to stop using it for a while to build up my skincare routine. Alhamdulillah everything going good for me. There’s no more annoying small pimples and I guess I can say I love this lotion.

WHAT’S I LIKE ABOUT THIS LOTION :

  • Make my skin feels smooth and fresh
  • Not experience any redness, irritation, sunburn or over-exfoliate
  • Affordable. 170ml for RM60 is not bad at all because it can stand almost 4 or 5 months depends on the usage.

Thank you so much for stopping by. What’s your current chemical exfoliate? Let me know in the comment below.

My experience with Simple Soothing Facial Toner

I decided to bought this toner after reading good reviews about it. A lot of skincare junkies talk goods about the toner so I just went to Guardian with my brother and purchased it after spend few minutes in Guardian store.Got it around RM16.00 (normal price is around RM18.00) for 200ml.

First I really love the packaging of the toner that’s comes in plastic bottle. I’m scared to purchase any skincare products that comes in with the glass jar or bottle because I am so clumsy and scared it will be crushed. Of course when it comes with glass bottle or jar, it’s looks fancy and like a high end brand but I’ll be never give a try. So, that’s good point of the product from Simple.

When I tried it on my face whether use it with cotton pad or just use my hands, there’s nothing bad happened to my skin, no burning sensation, doesn’t make my skin drying, and the most important thing is non-sticky which is good enough. I hate those toner with sticky effect when we apply on my face, really turn me off.

This toner come with fragrance free, so if you are can’t stand with fragrance or sensitive to the fragrance, this toner is for you. I don’t mind if the toner or any skincare I used come with any scent because my skin doesn’t have any problems with the scent. No itching or redness no nothing. I’m so grateful for that.

Will I repurchase? Maybe nope.

Freeman Facial Polishing Charcoal + Black Sugar

Freeman Facial Polishing Charcoal & Black Sugar Gel Mask + Scrub is one of the mask from Freeman, well-known brand in Malaysia. Before this, I also wrote a review about Freeman mask too ( link in bottom of the post, kindly check it out). I randomly purchased this one at Guardian store without reading any reviews of the product from beauty bloggers. 

For your information, at the moment I wrote this post, I’ve been using this product twice a week for four months now, and almost done with it, heck maybe I’ll buy another mask + scrub from Freeman again (but I don’t know which one to choose, there’s a lot of them!) or maybe I’ll use chemical exfoliator. I’m ready to give you my assumption. So let’s see if it lived up to the hype!

Freeman Facial Polishing Charcoal & Black Sugar Gel Mask + Scrub RM24.90 for 175ml.

Ingredient List:
Sucrose, Propylene Glycol, Carbon*, Kaolin, Musa Sapientum (Banana) Fruit Extract , Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Extract, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Psidium Guajava (Guava) Fruit Extract, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus (Lemongrass) Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Maranta Arundinacea Root (Arrowroot) Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Santalum Album (Sandalwood) Extract. Macrocystis Pyrifera (Giant Brown Seaweed) Extract. Nasturtium Officinale (Watercress) Extract. Aleurites Moluccana (Kukui)  Extract. Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Carbomer, Fragrance (Parfum), Iron Oxide (CI 177491).
*Activated Charcoal

First of all, when I bought this mask plus scrub, I can’t denies the happy feeling like ‘this time is gel mask plus scrub, let’s give it a try, my dear face’. At the same time, I admit that the thought of what might happen scared me, thinking about whether active charcoal will give effect on my skin because I never used any skincare products which includes active charcoal in their products. 

The purpose of the product is like it said on the tube :

Polution…debris…it’s a wonder skin can breathe! This unique mask and scrub works double time to detox skin. First, naturally purifying Activated Charcoal helps absorb oil and impurities without over-drying. The, Black Sugar helps exfoliate away dulling skin cells for softness and clarity. Perfect for all skin types.

The packaging is sooo great. This charcoal and black sugar mask and scrub comes in dark grey tube (it’s not so black one as I see). However, I still interested in buying and trying it out. Dark color really good at making me buying them. Why? Because I love dark color more than the light one. Credit to the tube packaging. Consequently I honestly passionate about tube packaging whether it moisturizers or clay masks or scrubs. Easy to keep, to-go  and does not require so much space.

Freeman Facial Polishing Mask Charcoal & Black Sugar

Texture and consistency : By looking at the photos above, you can see that this product looks more like facial scrub than mask although it said gel mask and scrub. It’s thick, but not so thick. Once I started to applying it on my face, after few seconds, it will be thinner absolutely because of the black sugar. Not to forget to mention about the warming sensation at the time you put it on your face. I didn’t read the instructions carefully, and I just put it on my dry face like I used Apple Cider Vinegar Clay Mask + Scrub and there we go. I felt like my face burning up, and then as quickly as possible rinse it with water. For the second time, I have to make sure to damp my face first before applying it to reduce the warming sensation. 

Ease of use and removal : Because it is a gel mask plus sugar, I found that it quite hard to apply on my face. It simply does not spread evenly like clay mask, and I have to use quite a lot of them because of the reason. Meanwhile, after waiting like five minutes, when it comes to the scrubbing my face and rinse, I found out that it is very easy as well, because the black sugar start to dissolved by the time  I finished with the exfoliation. For your information, there’s no bubbles like Apple Cider Vinegar when I washed out my face after scrubbing.

Exfoliation : As it mention as a gel mask plus scrub, of course I need to say something about the exfoliation. First, when I scrubbed my face, there’s no greasy, sticky or oil feeling at all. In fact, my skin feels clean, smooth and fresh. 

Fragrance : As I thought, this product smells sugary-sweet which is not too strong and not too light, also with some herbal smell (check on ingredients list above). I love those herbs smell and it’s not bothering me a bit during application. Fragrance in the two last ingredients list, if you can’t stand with fragrance or your skin sensitive to it, this mask and scrub is not for you. 

Will not repuchase it because of I can’t stand with the warming sensation although I love how it leaving my skin clean & smooth.

To sum up, this Charcoal + Black Sugar Gel Mask + Scrub is one of the best drugstore physical exfoliators I’ve tested in quite some time. I haven’t had any breakouts due to this product in the few months that I’ve been using it which is a good thing,
