Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ PA++++

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. If you are a beauty junkies, you probably already know the fact that Asia countries produce the best sunscreen. Anyone who has tried Asian sunscreen, they will know it works much more better! Asian sunscreens tend to be lighter, more fluid, and dry more matte on the skin. They’re often hydro-alcoholic formulas, which means they use water and alcohol to lighten up the texture and increase the drying speed.

It’s important to remember that while we may love the outdoors, going to the beach and how we look with a tan, there are serious consequences when we get too much sun exposure. Overexposure to the sun breaks down your skin’s natural collagen scaffolding and damages skin at a cellular level, leading to photo-aging, sun spots, and in some cases, even cancer. This makes sunscreen an important item to protect our skin. Here’s a tips to you: Sunscreen : You Need to Know.

Cut the story short and let’s begin with the review.

Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ PA+++

Description on the back of the packaging

Scents: Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence Sunscreen has a light, pleasant, citrus scent that dissipates quickly after application.

Formulation: It comes out as a white lotion and upon application it turn to very cool and watery essence. The texture is very lightweight. Once it is spread, it dries out quickly. The finish give you a clear and natural matte finish look (not oily at all).

Ingredient list:
ingredients

Do not use if: You are sensitive to alcohol, silicone, chemical UV filters, citrus fruit extracts, or anything else in the ingredients list.

Results: The results is, I really love it!!! Before trying this product, I only use sunscreen if I’m gonna use face powder to avoid the sticky and oily feeling. I have oily T-zone, so I really doesn’t like any product that give me extra shine. But now, it’s a total change. I use sunscreen every time when I’m leaving the house (now I can have a better protection for my skin). It doesn’t give me any irritation or breakouts although it contains alcohol. This sunscreen can be the best sunscreen that I have ever used. Upon first trial, I immediately have to purchase it. It dries and absorbs faster than any other sunscreen. I can tell that your skin will feel nothing at all. Using alcohol as one of the ingredients, I’m also worrying of my skin will be drying. However, it’s really no need for that worry. My skin works fine even only using this sunscreen without a toner. If your skin are very dry (and sensitive), then I’ll recommend you at least use a moisturizer as a base. If I’m in a rush to leave the house, my only products now is this  Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence SPF50+ PA++++.

Price: The price to me is very reasonable, where can you get such a good sunscreen with SPF50+ PA++++ for less than RM50. I bought mine at local SaSa Cosmetics shop for RM35.95. Hermo are selling this product at RM30.70 (you gotta be fast, cause it’s always sold out) while Amazon are selling this at US$8.23.

Will I repurchase? Yes, I definitely will. I rate this product for 5 out of 5.

Hope you enjoy reading my post. * Wanna know what sunscreen I use for my body? Read this!!!

Reviews

piolang_24k-gold-mask_main1_2

fullsizerender-1

Packaging: The packaging is simple and classic with the color of black and gold. The Egyptian logo give the packaging a more luxurious feeling. It comes with a small plastic scoop for you to scoop out the mask.

fullsizerender-2

Scents: The Gold mask has a very nice fragrance scents. (I really love it)

fullsizerender-3

Formulation: The Gold mask consistency is think (like soaked oats/chia seed). I applied it on my face with a brush (which is more easier compared to the scoop that provided). Due to the think consistency, it takes around 15-20 minutes to dry completely for a thin layer. Although the consistency is think, it’s still runny thus the application is easy. Once it’s completely dry, just rubbing off a little on the side and then you can peel every thing out of your face. (A few practice will be needed for a professionals peel)

Results: I’m actually quite worrying to try out a wrapping/peel-off mask. Fortunately, this mask is non-irritating. During the application, you skin feel nothing but after a few minutes (when it started to dry) you can feel it’s getting tighter and tighter. After the gold mask, I can immediate notice my skin becoming more radiant and glow. It doesn’t cause any dryness to my skin. For skin tone effect, this gold mask do really does it job. To remove blackheads as it claims, I didn’t really notice about it (no any changes). For hydration, I can see my face is not drying. It does provides moisture to my skin but is not as the picture shown (not as moisture as a sheet mask). Overall, I do like this mask.

img_4324

Will I repurchase? Yes, I will. I would love to use this mask twice a weeks to boost my skin radiance.

Wanna try the Piolang 24K Gold Wrapping Mask, buy yourself an expensive and luxurious face mask at Althea Korea for Rm69 or at Amazon for US$30.89.

Hope you enjoy reading my post.

A Complete Guide to Mascara Wands & Their Benefits

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Hope everyone of you have a nice day ahead. 🙂 Are you guys just like me? Any shape of the mascara wands doesn’t matter for me, as long as it’s a mascara that I can apply on my eye lashes. But, there is just too many types of mascara in the market!

There was a time when the shape of your mascara wand didn’t mean a thing. Straight and narrow, that was the way. Now we’re seeing spoolie shapes that feature curves and cones, spikes, push-up wings, and even cup-shaped bristles—each of which delivers a unique lash effect from curling and volumizing, to lengthening, multiplying and even clumping, if that’s what you’re into.

I read an article from Makeup.com and is all about types of mascara. That article has given me a very useful tips that I would like to share.

So, if you’re re-thinking your mascara choices, read on to see if you’re using the right wand for the lashes of your dreams.

2311-mdc-mascaratips-aguidetodifferentspoolie-cover_v2

A new trend in town, Twiggy-esque spider lashes has been making regular appearance on runways, social feeds, and celeb’s faces. If serious drama is your cup of tea, the Spider Spike Brush works to sweep on the bold volume and maximum length, while the tapered tips is used for applying mascara to your corners.

Mega volume. Mega plush. That’s what we like to hear when someone  is describing your eyelashes. And with a Flexor Brush this full and plump, you can expect every single lash to be coated with mascara for mega volume, thickness and body. BOOM!!!

The winged lashes, look for a winged wand! The exclusive “Push Up” winged brush sweep lashes to thee side, while lifting and plumping from thee roots for a voluminous, winged arch. So, you can bat your lashes without worrying about your falsies coming off.

Doll-like lashes without a lash curler – is it really possible? The custom C-curl brush lifts each lash for the perfect curl and thickness without the perpetual worry of pinching off your lashes.

Sometimes a gal  just wanted a well-defined lashes with zero-clumps. For natural long-looking lashes, this “Wiper” brush deliver the perfect amount of formula to each lash without clumps, bumps or undesirable lumps!

And on and opposite note, sometimes you just want to unleash chaotic, clumpy lashes when the occasions call for it. A teaser brush such as this one has the same effect on your lashes as a testing brush for your hair. we mean BIG volume, plump, purposefully unorganized lashes. Call us a hot mess. We’ll take it as a compliment.

Uhm, who doesn’t want lots and lots (and lots) of lashes? The unique, heart-shaped brush reached each and every lashes to multiply impact. Get ready for those “WOW, are those your real lashes?” comments.

This spoolie does for your lashes what stilettos does for your legs – elongates! The Grip & Extended Brush grasps each lash and extend for every angle for 70% longer looking lashes. Well we’ll continue to wish for longer legs, lashes will also do.

Which wand work best for your lashes needs?

Share your favorite mascara and spoolie shape in the comments below! I’ll go for a try too!!!

Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Today I’ll be sharing Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion. I get this product as a free gift from the FEMALE Magazine October issue. *Although I get this lotion as a free gift, but all opinion are based on me.

img_4290

Do you know that even when you try to protect skin by staying in the shade, you may still be exposed to up to half of the sun’s UV rays. That is why you need a daily lotion with SPF. Finding a right day lotion with SPF is not an easy job, I have tried a few and it’s disappointing. But let me tell you, this Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion is different!

vaseline-1

This Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion is enriched with micro droplets of Vaseline Jelly that has been perfected for the past 146years, Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ helps restore damaged skin from deep within to reveal fairer skin. Not only this, it is specially formulated with SPF24 PA++ to give all protection even under harsh sun against UVA,UVA1, UVA2, UVB  rays that cause skin darkening and damage. It also contains Vitamin B3 that actively help lighten your skin, to reveal fairer, healthier-looking skin overtime.

vaseline

Before I try Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion, I hate using any sunblock or lotion during the day to protect my skin. I hate the strong smell of sunblock whereby everyone that near me then to get the scents too. Besides, I always need to be travel around. Using a body lotion gives me a greasy feeling especially after I sweat. So, I always choose to not use any and thinking that walk or hide under a shade will keep me safe from the sun. However, this is wrong!!! The shade only protects your skin from the direct rays of the sun, but UV rays are reflected off various surface – such as sidewalks, pavements, and sand. Even under the shade your skin may be exposed to up to 50% of the sun’s UV rays, leading to darkening and damage.

I started to use the Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion at the end of September until now (almost two weeks). I really love how the finishing results can give to me.

Review

Packaging: The packaging is very simple. It comes in a plastic milky pink bottle with an open-close lid. The one I got is in 100ml, a travel-friendly size that I can carry in my bag. Do not need to worry about the products leakage, because the lid is strong enough to hold the lotion.

img_4285

Some information are attached at the back of the bottle.

Ingredients: WATER, ETHYLHEXYL SALICYLATE, GLYCERIN, STEARIC ACID, PHENYLBENZIMIDAZOLE SULFONIC ACID, GLYCOL STEARATE (AND) STEARAMIDE AMP, PEG-100 STEARATE, BUTYL METHOXYDIBENZOYLMETHANE, DIMETHICONE, OCTOCRYLENE, PHENOXYETHANOL, GLYCERYL STEARATE, POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE, CAPRYLYL GLYCOL, CARBOMER, CETYL ALCOHOL, PETROLATUM, NIACINAMIDE, XANTHAN GUM, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, DISODIUM EDTA, BHT, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, SODIUM ASCORBYL PHOSPHATE, PERFUME, BENZYL SALICYLATE, BUTYLPHENYL METHYLPROPIONAL, CITRONELLOL, GERNIOL, HEXYL CINNAMAL, LIMONENE, LINALOOL.

How to use: Use twice a day for best results. Apply thoroughly to avoid product rubbing off on clothes. I’ll suggest to apply the lotion at least 30 minutes before you leave the house. This is to ensure that the product is fully absorbs into the skin. A pea size amount is enough for one hand.

Scents: It has a very light flowery scents. The scents is not too strong, but can stays for a couple of hours.

Formulation: The lotion is in white color but do not need to worry for it to be transfer on your clothes. It’s very lightweight and the consistency of the lotion is just nice. So, it can absorbed into the skin really quick. I really love the non-greasy and non-sticky feeling that this lotion leaves on my skin. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and soft all-day. It also not like any night-time lotion that leaves you a slippery layer. Since the products only stated to restore and protect skin fairness, so I do not expected for any lightening to happen on my skin tone. *There  is another Vaseline SPF lightening lotion, for those who is expected for a skin tone lightening you may try that out. 

PROS:

  • Non sticky, non greasy
  • Gets absorbed in the skin quickly
  • Comes with SPF 24, PA++ and Vitamin B3
  • Travel friendly
  • Affordable

CONS:

  • Not waterproof
  • No ‘skin lightening’ process

Will I repurchase? Yes, I will. I like how it can protect my skin under the hot sun without giving me any uneasiness.

Wanna try the Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 PA++ Lotion, buy yourself a FEMALE Magazine October issue for first try. If you really like it after a try, get this product at any drugstore like Watsons and Guardian.

Bedtime Yoga! Relaxing Yoga poses for better sleep

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. Do you guys have the same problems like me? Difficult to fall into sleep at night…. It’s always my headache at night. Sleep is very important for us. I know it’s time for me to go to bed, but I just can’t. I feel so tired and sleepy during the day, while during the night I’m just like an active owl.

I have tried counting the sheep (it just getting me bored but not sleepy), drink some tea to relax, listening to bedtime music…. Sadly, none of it works. Some of the tricks do make me sleep, but definitely not a good sleep. Until recently, I read an article from Popsugar.com about 9 Relaxing Stretches You Can Do in Bed. The results… Is a WOW!!! My mind and body is way more relax and I get to walk into my dreamland so easily. I get a full solid sleep every night. 

I decided to share all the yoga poses with you guys! *Original article are from Popsugar.com 

None of the yoga or stretch poses need you to do it on your yoga mat. Here are nine stretches you can do in your pajamas and your bed — either before you go to sleep or once your alarm goes off — or both! Do all nine if you have time, or just pick a few. Either way, you’ll feel more relaxed, whether you’re heading to the land of nod or waking with the sun.

  • Spinal Twist

spinal-twist-Lie on your back in the middle of your bed. Bend both knees into the chest, and then cross them over to the left side of your body. You can even let your knees hang slightly over the edge of the bed for a deeper stretch.

-Extend your arms in T position, and gaze to the right.

-Stay like this for 30 seconds or more, feeling your spine lengthen and twist. You may even hear some cracks.

-Use your abs to lift your knees back to center, and repeat on the other side

  • Knee to Chest Back Stretch

knee-chest-back-stretch-Lie on your back with your legs extended.

-Gently bend your left knee into your chest. Clasp your hands in front of your shin and gently pull down to increase the stretch. Release any tension in your shoulders and neck.

-Keep your right leg relaxed in a comfortable position.

-Hold for 30 seconds and then repeat with the right knee bent.

  • Reclining Hamstring Stretch

reclining-hamstring-stretch-Lie on your back. Raise your left leg as high as you can, keeping your pelvis flat on the ground. Hold your lower thigh and encourage the leg to move toward your head. Flex your bottom foot to stretch your calf too.

-Hold for 30 seconds, then switch sides.

  • Lying Side Quad Stretch

lying-side-quad-stretch-Lie on your left side. Bend your left elbow and prop your head up with your left hand.

-Bend your right knee and hold on to the top of your foot with your right hand. Pull your heel toward your bum. If you find it tough to balance, bend your bottom knee as well.

-Hold for 30 seconds, pressing your hips slightly forward to increase the stretch in the front of your thigh.

-Release the stretch, roll over onto your right side and stretch your left quad.

  • Half Happy Baby

half-happy-baby-Lie on your back with your legs extended.

-Gently bend your left knee and hold on to the sole of your foot with both hands. Gently press your knee toward the bed so it’s next to your torso and just below your shoulder. Your back and head should remain resting on the bed.

-Keep your right leg relaxed in a comfortable position.

-Hold for 30 seconds and then repeat with the right leg.

  • Happy Baby

happy-baby-Lie on your back, bend both knees and hold on to the outside edges of your feet.

-Gently use your arm muscles to pull your knees toward the floor beside your chest. Relax your shoulders and your head, staying here for 30 seconds.

  • Cobra

cobra-Roll over onto your belly and extend your arms out in front of you. If you’re tall, you can hang your feet over the end of the bed.

-Keeping your legs and pelvis grounded, slowly begin to walk your hands toward your chest. As your torso lifts off the bed, keep a slight bend in your elbows. Walk your hands in until you feel a nice stretch in your abs. Relax your shoulders away from your ears and lengthen your neck. If it feels OK, lower your head back between your shoulder blades, and you’ll feel a nice stretch in your chest and neck.

-Stay here for 30 seconds and then lower your torso back to the bed.

  • Butterfly

butterfly-Sit with both knees bent, soles of the feet touching.

-Fold forward as far as you want, resting the hands on your ankles or on the bed in front of your feet.

-Enjoy this stretch for 30 seconds.

  • Upside-Down Relaxation

fi110105fttim003-Sit facing a wall (or your headboard) with your butt about 6 inches away from it.

-Lie back and extend your legs up the wall.

-If this is too intense a stretch for your hamstrings, slide your butt farther away from the wall.

-If it’s not enough, scoot closer.

-Let your arms rest by your sides, palms facing up, and breathe gently, feeling the stretch in the backs of your legs.

Now, try the poses and get yourself a good sleep!

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. As usual, it’s product review times again. Today I wanna share the second eye patch that I have used with you guys. It’s the Petitfee–Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eyepatch.

If you are unsure about the brand Petitfee, no worries, just click into their official website and have a look. Or you can read my review on Petitfee – Gold & EGF Eye & Spot Patch where I have explain a little about it.

The previous review about the Gold & EGF Eye & Spot Patch are mainly to reduce the dark eye circles. While for this Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eyepatch are mainly to reduce the eye bag and wrinkles. Of course, all the problems mentioned (dark eye circles, wrinkles and eye bag) are girls headache.

Now, lets us start the review and see how well the Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eyepatch can be!!!

Petitfee – Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eyepatch

black-pearl-and-gold1

You might be wondering why they choose to use black pearl and gold? This is because pearl having high level of amino acid and minerals helps circumstation, while gold ingredients purifies skin and helps keep the bright tone. What make this product a winner is the highly densed essence of nutrients. It contains green tea, wormwood, citron, cucumber, grapefruit seed and other various of plants is condensed in this essence provide moisture and nutrition deep into the skin which helps improve the skin around the eyes area. Mist type out of natural gel ingredients can be used for body care after melt it with warm water.

Review

This Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eyepatch are recommended for people who want to reduce the wrinkles around eye area, concern with dark eye circle, want to have a moisture skin and increase skin vitality. Of course, we want all of it!

Again, I use this almost everyday especially for my night skin care routine. After toner, I’ll apply this eye patch and then follow by the others. Same like the Gold & EGF Eye & Spot Patch, it’s very cooling and soothing. I feel relaxed when putting this eye patch on.The eye patches is very hydrating and moisture with a lot of essence in it. Once opening, it’s recommended to use within two months. It contains 60 patches, for everyday-use in a month you can finish it. It’s recommended to use within two months because it contains high level of essence (you can feel it’s dripping out). If it’s store more than two months, you can feel the dryness of it.

However, this patches do give me a slight sting feeling like the Gold & EGF Eye & Spot Patch as well. Luckily, it’s doesn’t bring any irritation or sensitivity issues. I believe because the under eye area can be very tender and soft, so when the patches are cool it reacts that way.

For the scent, again it’s same like the Gold & EGF Eye & Spot Patch. It has a very strong floral scent(which some of you may not like it) but it’s not that strong until it can cause you to sneeze. It’s a hydrogel eye patches, so it’s a thick gel like texture. The shape for this is slightly bigger compare to the other one. So, it can cover a bigger area.

Will I repurchase? Yes, I will. Although the results is not so obvious but I find that it helps to relax my tired eyes. The price of it is very reasonable, so i think I’ll take the pay for it.

Wanna try the  Petitfee – Black Pearl & Gold Hydrogel Eyepatch, buy it at Hermo for RM29.00 or at Amazon for US$10.25.

Hope you enjoy reading my post.

This makeup setting spray is very lightweight. You can really feel it’s fast absorbing properties. Of course, most important it holds the makeup all day long just as it stated. It doesn’t give me any oily or sticky feeling. I feel that my makeup can really last long and just sitting in place. I have tried using it on a busy day (whereby I have to walk around under the hot sun) with heavy makeup, and the results is my makeup stays well and not smudge at all  (I do have a little touch up). Overall results is satisfying!!! I like to use it for special occasion or when I know I’m gonna walk around with a heavy makeup. Otherwise, I will still use the MAKE UP FOR EVER Mist & Fix Setting Spray for daily use due to the pretty hefty price-tag of this setting spray. The makeup staying power by using this Urban Decay setting spray definitely can beat the Makeup For Ever. Some even say that it’s sweat and waterproof. It’s suitable for all skin types, but if your skin are very (I mean super duper dry) dry then you should try the Chill Cooling & Hydrating Makeup Setting Spray.

I’ll rate this products a 5 stars out of 5.

Hope you enjoy reading.

How To: Pick the Right Tool to Apply Foundation

HOW TO: PICK THE RIGHT TOOL TO APPLY FOUNDATION

Jess 101 beautyland

Hello everyone, recently I have came across an article about  How To: Pick the Right Tool to Apply Foundation from Makeup.com. I find that the article is very interesting and informative. Thus, I decided to share with you girls.

*Main article has been edited and retained information are from Makeup.comhow-to-pick-the-right-foundation-tool-bopOne of the questions that will pop up every time when we apply foundation is, whether we should use our fingers, a brush, or a sponge to apply foundation. My answer? All three methods work, as long as you know how and when to use each technique. Here are some guidelines to get you started.

How To: Pick the Right Tool to Apply Foundation

Hello everyone, recently I have came across an article about  How To: Pick the Right Tool to Apply Foundation from Makeup.com. I find that the article is very interesting and informative. Thus, I decided to share with you girls.

*Main article has been edited and retained information are from Makeup.comhow-to-pick-the-right-foundation-tool-bopOne of the questions that will pop up every time when we apply foundation is, whether we should use our fingers, a brush, or a sponge to apply foundation. My answer? All three methods work, as long as you know how and when to use each technique. Here are some guidelines to get you started.

Brush

A foundation brush should be used when applying liquid foundation to the face. A brush will give you a flawless finish without wasting a lot of your product, and it also blends much more evenly than your fingers will. While you can apply liquid foundation with your fingers, you’ll end up spending more time blending, and usually the results won’t match up to a brush’s ability to smooth and perfect. Invest in a quality foundation brush and wash it regularly. This will increase the longevity of the brush and make the most of your money!

Sponge

The Beauty Blender Sponge is one of my favorite tools for blending foundation and concealer on the skin. This is a great tool to use after you have applied foundation to your face, but want to make sure all areas are buffed to perfection. It also has a tip point that makes blending around the nose and eyes extremely easy if your brush didn’t quite get to those areas. The sponges that you want to avoid using for application are the white triangular shaped ones. These actually absorb the foundation immediately, causing you to use more. Utilizing a sponge to help blend instead of applying the product will give you much better results.

Fingers

The best time to use your fingers is when applying light tinted moisturizers or BB creams. Since this texture is almost like a moisturizer, the finish is extremely natural, making it easy to achieve an even skin tone by hand. The most important thing to remember when using your fingers is to make sure they are clean! Wash your hands before every application to avoid spreading oil, dirt, and germs to your face.

How do you like to apply your foundation?

Japan Horse Oil (Bahyu) Lip Balm

Hello everyone, hope you have a nice day. Today I’m gonna review to you the Japan Horse Oil (Bahyu) Lip Balm from my Japan Beauty Haul post.

In my Japan Beauty Haul post, I have already explain what  exactly horse oil products’ are. Over here, I’ll just add a few more information about the Horse Oil.

Info from previous post: 

Horse oil (BAHYU) is oil obtained from horse fat just like other animal oil such as lard from pig fat or lanolin from sheep wool. It is 100% natural and additive free. For centuries in Japan BAHYU has been widely known as a home remedy for burns, dry skin, cuts, chapped skin and hemorrhoids. BAHYU has been used safely without a doctor’s prescription, as it can be used in food and there are no side effects. Traditional Chinese medicines also recommend using BAHYU to treat eczema and acne.

Are horses slaughtered only to obtain the oil? No. Horse oil is obtained from horses that are slaughtered for food. Traditionally Japanese people have a custom of eating horse meat. Fats from the horse meat are used to produce BAHYU. They DO NOT slaughter horses only to obtain the horse oil.

Do they use racing horses to obtain the oil? No. Racing horses are not used for BAHYU. Only horses that are raised for food are used for the oil. Horse meat is monitored by Public Health Department to meet safety standards and fats from the edible horse meat are used to obtain the oil. 

*All product from horse oil are not classified as cruelty-free.

Benefits of Horse Oil
  • known for its healing properties and highly moisturizing capabilities
  • helps strengthen and regenerating the moisture barrier of the skin, preventing dry skin
  • composition of the fatty acids in horse oil are fairly similar to human oil (sebum) and therefore, it can penetrate more quickly into your skin
According to a Japanese article  “馬油による皮膚の保湿効果の検討” published in Nishinihon Journal of Dermatology, Vol. 66; No 6; pp. 621-624 (2004).
” The Moisturising effect on the skin of horse oil that resembles the fatty acid composition of human sebum and contains a large amount of linoleic acid was investigated. Horse oil applied to seven healthy females was shown to increase water and oil content in the horny layer. Examinations of the fatty acid compositions of the oil remaining on the surface of the skin two hours after the application revealed a clear decrease in linoleic acid content. The increase in water and oil content in the skin due to local application of horse oil was an important contribution to the structure of the skin to maintain its function as a barrier, mainly as a result of absorption of linoleic acid by the skin. These findings indicate that horse oil as a preparation for external use is suitable for maintaining the health and moisture of skin through per-cutaneous administration.”

Since I can’t understand Japanese, so I can’t tell what’s written on the description (If you do understand please tell me too… thanks 🙂For simply understanding, it’s stated that the product is free of fragrances, parabens, mineral oil and dyes. Besides, it also stated that it’s made out of 99.9% of natural ingredients.

Review

The first things that I wanna mention is the smell. Although it’s made out of horse oil, but it doesn’t give any smell or scent of horse (oil). So, don’t be afraid to give it a try. It doesn’t show off any color, just like a normal lip balm. I have very sensitive and dry lip. Thank god that this product doesn’t cause me to have any irritation. It moisturized my dry and chapped  lip really well. By applying it a few times in a day, I can see a big difference for my chapped lip. The texture of the lip balm is very moisturizing but it’s not waxy. I doesn’t like any lip products that give me a waxy feeling. I can say that I like the texture of this lip balm. It doesn’t contains any SPF in it. But it’s okay for me, because I’ll always apply another layer of my lipstick after this lip balm. I always own a lip balm that without SPF for me to use at night. This lip balm works best at night or in a cold condition due to its high moisturizing properties. The packaging is very simple.

If you are travelling to Japan, I will recommend you to give the horse oil products a try. The price of it is also not that expensive.

Due to the communication problems, I’ll suggest you to show the pharmacist or sales person picture of the products that you want.  You can fully trust the products that recommend by the pharmacist in Japan. I have personally try a few medication products from them and it does really works and solved my problems. 

Hope you enjoy reading my post.
