    USE IT OR LOSE IT: SECRET KEY starting treatment essence ROSE EDITION review

    USE IT OR LOSE IT: SECRET KEY starting treatment essence ROSE EDITION review

    More for First Time Essence that is being popularized by SK II, if you know about Galactomyces (Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate) or Pitera, this essence also contain the ingredients. The ingredients makes every essence to use the term ‘First Treatment Essence’ and Secret Key decided to use another wording called ‘Starting Treatment’, it just play out of English wording.

    I have also reviewed MISSHA First Treatment Essence that you can read below:

    Galactomyces (Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate) or Pitera is certain yeast that being fermented and believe can be use as anti aging, and skin nourishing magic liquid, however this ingredients is not yet proven from scientific view to be able to deliver that benefit to the skin, except from Parent company of SK II (PG company) that made a confirmation about this ingredients could potentially help skin cause Pitera contain lots of moisturizer that could help to reduce skin damage. They also found that the ingredients could help to increase hyaluronan and have anti oxidant effects.

    ABOUT THE PRODUCT

    There is no specific explanation nor do I found any website of Secret Key but the retail website that sell this product. If you located in Singapore, you can buy this product on Shopee app. This is the ROSE EDITION. There is the original one but I covered on this article just only the ROSE EDITION. There is no fragrance in ROSE edition, that’s good.

    The brands claimed that the essence have this benefit, as stated below:

    • Wrinkle improvement
    • Refine skin tone
    • Whitening
    • Elasticity
    • Soothing skin
    • Hydration
    • Oil control
    • Exfoliation
    • Boosting
    • Takes care of sensitive skin.
    • Reduce inflammation and redness
    • Can be use in acne prone skin

    INGREDIENTS

    Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate, Dipropylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Glycerin, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Acorus Gramineus Root/Stem Extract, Perilla Ocymoides Leaf Extract, Rosa Centifolia Flower Water, Adenosine.

    HOW TO USE

    Use after C serum and hyaluronic acid, never forget to wash your face before applying your skincare routine. You can always add up more essence, if you feel this is not enough.

    Product packaging

    The box is made of thick that appear to me as a good quality. The packaging appear to me as having a feel of high end brands. The bottle made of thick glass that is quite heavy and will scatter, if you drop it. I think they use this kind of bottle because they want to sustain the ingredients performance since exposure it’s not advisable when skincare brands try to develop essence using pitera. The rose edition has roses emblem into the bottle in gold color, love it!

    The liquid is clear bright and not sticky at all, however, the fermentation ingredients can be feel once it touched your skin. There is a cooling feels when I apply to my skin. This is probably the part where calming redness and inflammation work. It absorbed so quickly into my dry skin, also I am loving the fact that this has no fragrance involves. To be honest, it’s so rare to find K-beauty without fragrance these days.

    FINAL THOUGHT

    This essence actually works better than MISSHA First Treatment Essence. It tightens my skin elastic helps, help brighten my skin, smooth my skin and also reduce the appearance of small pimples around my cheek. I have not suffered from any skin breakout from the first time I use until you read this post because I still using this product. However, my skin condition is dry, dehydrated, sensitive with adult acne – using this essence alone is not helping with my skin, so I added another essence from HADA LABO premium essence. However, if you have oily to a normal skin condition, I guess using this alone is enough. You can always add more essence if you feel less.

    PITERA – I don’t believe this ingredient even thou it is already proven by PG scientific result, yet none of the other brands really use this particular ingredient. I feel that Secret Key may also use other ingredients that work alongside to help Pitera achieve its result because these ingredients alone are not helping as I try Missha Time Revolution essence. To believe that fermented ingredients will bring good results is not my style as a beauty reviewer to believe such as marketing gimmick but if it is proven for certain product such as Secret Key, I will believe that this product only that deliver such as good result using fermented ingredients, I may have tested the other product all over again to prove it.

    Update as 7 June 2019: I supply at home 3 bottle of this essence. I freaking love it.

    “I test Secret Key that use PITERA and Secret Key deliver a good result for my skin.I believe that any kind of product that use PITERA or fermented ingredients is good

    This is applicable for my review.

    Tips:

    You need to use the essence alongside with your other skincare around your neck toward your breast area because that area will be exposed more to the environment without us noticing it, especially if you like to use V neck or bikini.

    VERDICT

    This product is:

    HADA LABO Facial Essence review

    HADA LABO Facial Essence review

    Hi Skincare junkies, I’m so excited to share with you about skincare products that I have been using it for a long time and finished almost 2 bottles and planned to continue using it. This is facial essences from Hada Labo, and I purchased it on Singapore Drugstore. The essence on this article as below:

    • Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion

    • Hada Labo Alpha Gokuyjun 

    • Hada Labo Primer Essence

    I listed from low to high level of moisturizer and hydration. For some of you who may not know this brand yet, this is a drugstore brand from Japan. I was digging their product for almost 2 months, to use for my own personal use and for this article, since I have been really attracted to drugstore products lately. I done research towards their ingredients, some products I feel is underrated such as this facial essences, I believe that many of you probably don’t have the ideas that drugstore skincare products can be as good or even better than high-end brands.

    Facial essences contain ingredients that are pro skin benefit. no alcohol nor fragrances contained inside, therefore I purchased it and test the facial essences in accordance to what my skin needs. Let’s go through one by one:

    HADA LABO HYDRATING LOTION

    The hydrating lotion contains a low level of moisturizer that could work for those who have normal, combination and oily skin. The lotion is a clear, watery form and contains lots of hyaluronic acids. Upon using this product, my skin doesn’t suffer from any kind of breakout or any particular problem at all. This facial essence alone can’t help dry skin like mine in supplying hydration or even moisturizer. Therefore I need to add more layer of essence and face cream.

    How to use it:

    Use it after face wash and before the face cream

    Ingredients:

    Please see on the image below. Kindly note that ingredients may be different on different countries.

    HADA LABO ALPHA GOKUYJUN

    This facial essence is milky form, which comes in a perfect balance of moisturizer, for those who having combination skin, you may want to take a look at this facial essence if hydration lotion (above) not enough to supply you with moisturizer in the dry area of your skin. If you notice the ingredients listed below which contain more collagen and soothing ingredients. I use sheet mask fro Gokuyjun Alpha about 5 boxes already and it is working perfectly with my skin and I guess itis my HG sheet mask. I never purchased any other sheet mask up till now, after using it.

    Hada Labo Alpha Gokujun Sheet Mask

    How to use:

    Use after facial wash, you can be added this essence for more layer of moisturizer. I wrote last time in Skincare 12 layer challenge

    that adding a layer from facial essence is like creating a layer of protection for skin, it works to provide skin with moisturizer before using face cream, which is important because our skin absorbs water form of skincare quicker than cream type. Besides our skin contains water that contributes to dehydration that led to dry skin and skin breakout.

    Ingredients:

    Please see on the image below. Kindly note that ingredients may be different on different countries.

    HADA LABO PRIMER ESSENCE

    The facial essence that contains lots of moisturizers. I use this and added gokuyjun lotion for the second layer before face cream. This facial essence is perfect for those who have dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. I try the gel sheet mask for this series but it seems like they need to produce a nicer gel because the lips part is too wider and the gel mask itself is slippery, but the essence is really good for skin. The gel mask is pricey than sheet mask, I will advise you to buy Alpha sheet mask than the gel sheet mask because the essence is similar and the sheet mask is better in design than the gel mask. The price is 1 box sheet mask for 1 gel mask. it’s very pricey. I don’t suffer from skin purging, skin breaks out or makeup pilling using this facial essence. This one is my HG

    Up till now, you probably realize that this article is a positive review. I could say that because this product is really good and I still use it, I wrote this article to share with you who want to find a good facial essence that doesn’t cost much. This facial essence costs less than SGD 25.00 and for a bottle, I could use about 1.5 months with a usage of 2 times a days. I feel that the price and quality are matches, or I could conclude that the price is cheaper compared to the quality which is better. I think this facial essence is quite underrated in Singapore since the brands didn’t use influencers much to advert the product. why would a brand use influencer if the product is way too good?

    I don’t rate products because choosing facial essence is actually depending on the level of moisturizer that our skin needs, so it will be very bias for me to even give ratings to it, but do try to take a look this product on drugstore.

    USE IT or LOSE IT: MISSHA TIME REVOLUTION THE FIRST TREATMENT ESSENCE INTENSIVE MOIST Review

    USE IT or LOSE IT: MISSHA TIME REVOLUTION THE FIRST TREATMENT ESSENCE INTENSIVE MOIST Review

    Missha Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence from Korea, similar to SK-II and actually rumoured to be the dupes of SK-II since both using Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate or known as Pitera. the one that invented the uses of fermented yeast ingredients is SK-II Japan, and P&G lab fermented ingredients.

    This essence uses fermented ingredients. The essence is so popular in social media that makes me feel so curious about the effectiveness of the essences. I decided to purchase at Shopee Singapore App

    PRODUCT INFORMATION

    Size: 150 ml

    Price: S$ 23.00

    Where do I buy? Shopee Singapore

    What is this product type? Fermneted Essence (see ingredientts)

    How to use:

    For the first step in your daily skincare routine
    After washing your face, get appropriate amount onto cotton puff [Premium Silk-feel Cotton Puff] or hands.
    Pat lightly onto skin until completely absorbed.
    Follow with lotion, serum, eye cream, and cream.
    *When using a cleansing toner, apply the toner first before the First Treatment Essence


    Ingredients:

    Contains 80% Fermented Yeast Extract
    Extracted from fission yeast, which has a similar structure to the multiplication of human cells, this fermented yeast extract is skin-friendly and has similar components to NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor) to help improve the foundation of skin through moisturizing, firming, and balancing.

    Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Bigida Ferment Lysate, Propanediol, Niacinamide, Polyquaternium-51, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Betaine, Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract, Pirper Methysticum Leaf/Root/Stem Extract, Beta vulgaris (Beet) Root extract, Phellodendron Amurense Bark Extract, Cassia Alata Leaf Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Pentylene Glycol, Water, Trehalose, Disodium EDTA, Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Adenosine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Raffinose, Tromethamine, Acetic Acid, Lactic Acid, 1, 2-Hexanediol, Caprytyl Glycol, Hexapeptide-9 Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate


    PRODUCT OUTLOOK

    Made from a perfect quality of plastic glass bottle. Rotate the cap to use. This is quite heavy and not suitable to bring during travel, you must seal the cap and put it in the bubble wrap or plastic.


    REVIEW:

    To my hope, this essence led me to feel disappointed. It is quite costly yet have no effect at all. If you happened to do some check about Pitera or other fermented ingredients benefits,  such as benefit:

    • Firm skin by supporting collagen production
    • Brighten skin to more healthy skin
    • Moist and hydrate skin
    • Heal post acne scar
    • Act as anti ageing

    This is the major benefit when it comes to skincare that uses fermented ingredients. This essence doesn’t cover any of that benefit.

    According to the site that this essence is for:

    • Those with temperamental skin
    • Those with a dull complexion
    • Those seeking a clearer, cleaner complexion and more moisturized skin

    The brand also claims that using this essence can increase the rate of absorption of the skin to reap the benefit of other skincare. That doesn’t happen at all. The benefit that they claimed is nonetheless just a gimmick claim.

    Not even my post acne scars heal, and it does not soothe or even brighten my skin complexion. Most of the benefit mentioned above doesn’t happened in my skin. I have wasted my money on purchasing this essence.

    The essence feels like regular water that I pour around my skin. It doesn’t even have the effect in firming or tightens my skin as fermented skincare should have done. I try about a month, and I don’t see any visible result at all.

    The irony is MISSHA Time Revolution using Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate that actually being used in SK-II essence but doesn’t bring the same outcome. I assume that the formulation may have been the problem, since it is tricky to use fermented ingredients that none of other skincare dare to use because the performance or outcome may not be as dramatic as most of us hear or read online. Such as brand that still doesn’t take any step to use fermented is the classic and popular brand Clinique.

    In the past years, Clinique has been formulating ingredients over and over again, while bringing the new packaging and new benefit for the market, but have not yet heard they are going to use fermented ingredients.

    There are many new indie brands in Korea that sell fermented essence that work and deliver similar performance to SK-II. It is abslutely not MISSHA TIME REVOLUTION.

    USE IT or LOSE IT: BELIF THE TRUE DECOCTION Firming Essence

    USE IT or LOSE IT: BELIF THE TRUE DECOCTION Firming Essence

    The form you are trying to view has been unpublished.

    BELIF is korean famous beauty brand that deliver exceptional skincare that is not only price but good quality as well. This article is talking about facial essence and the image above is a sample product that Belif store assistant give it to me during my purchase in the store, which is smaller in size but no different in product packaging. I have recently stop using Belif  The True Cream Aqua bomb and Moisturizing bomb.

    The essence are very price in my opinion with S$ 80.00 for the actual bottle. The other essence that I have reviewed is line rescue essence and also part of The True Decoction. The sample provide me for 7 days 2 times application usage. The sample itself has been a great advantages for me to provide review.

    This is a very good quality essence with really creamy feeling that my skin love, the firming essence can help to tighten my skin and plumping my skin a little bit. Upon using the product I feel like my skin got ‘wake up call’ and producing more collagen, with the help of PIXI Glow Tonic, both product has given exceptional performance in my dry, sensitive and acne prone skin.

    No skin purging, break out and allergic occurred

    During the 7 days. I love it. It absorb really quick into my skin. The pumping bottle make the essence effect last longer. My skin can absorb all the benefit. If you have no ideas, the applicator of skincare determine if the skincare nutrition is going to be long lasting or not. for example, if its jar applicator, chances are 70% going to last but most people who know about skincare will probably avoid buying jar applicator for their face cream but toothpaste, because the cream doesn’t expose to direct sunlight and outdoor, while jar exposing every cream contain in the applicator itself.

    What is this product?

    It is a firming energy essence contains natural herbal ingredients that help to tighten and firm sagging skin. This is good for users in the early 30s who start to feel lack of firmness and sagging facial line. This is formulated by Herbal Collagen Peptide to help collagen synthesis and skin immunity yet to increase the inner skin firmness up to 90%.

    No Addition of Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Animal-origin ingredients.

    How to use:

    After applying toner, pump two to three times in your palm and apply gently over the face, moving along the skin surface.

    Size: 50 ml

    Price: S$ 80.00

    Ingredients: 

    There is no indication of ingredients that I can find on the bottle packaging nor on internet but they claimed they only use herbal ingredients as below.

    • Herbal  ingredient : Bistorta, Silverweed , Mullein
    • Hub Collagen Peptides ™ and the root directory koksyeon Formula ™ as a product containing an anti-wrinkle functional essence that trimmed the skin elasticity and wrinkles elastic taengtaenghan formulation that smoothly while purging the skin problems by increasing the elastic energy of the skin root directory koksyeon formula is enriched by the efficacy of herbal ingredients to de-koksyeon (decoction) extraction 300 years of tradition in superior efficacy in this carefully selected herbal skin Edinburgh Royal Botanic Garden.
    • It helps improve skin wrinkles.

    MORE….

    What is the different between firming and anti aging?

    Firming skincare using same ingredients with anti -aging but anti – aging have added more ingredient, meaning more chemical ingredients to slow down the process of aging skin. You can only slow down by giving more moisturizer but you cannot prevent your skin in aging. This is why older people tend to care more about their eating habit, lifestyle and also skincare. There is people who going to gym but have sagging and wrinkle in their skin.

    There are lots of speculation into anti aging and firming skincare, which I highly tell you that the different is the ingredients which is less or more ingredients, in this case is chemical . Some brands will give more alcohol into the skincare which provide you with the impression of ‘tight skin’, when you actually just experiment the dry of the cream itself, this is happened for those firming skincare.

    Anti-aging skincare, will boost more moisturizer into your skin, leaving you feel at ease. More moist less wrinkles, that is for sure. The main reason people get wrinkles easily is because they are not using proper skincare that contain more moisturizer, even if you have oily skin, you still need to use face cream in gel type form because oil is not moisturizer.


    PRODUCT OUTLOOK

    Plastic bottle with pump applicator, no box provided for me. The cream is white in color. Absorb quite slow since it is really creamy.

    The image below is the sample size.

    As promised last week on Cosrx Advanced Snail Mucin Essence 96

    USE IT or LOOSE IT: COSRX ADVANCED SNAIL 96 Mucin Power Essence review

    that I will review Belif The True Decoction Line Wrinkle essence. This essence is super expensive yet it does deliver a good quality essence that I always looking for. As you may know by now, my skin is dry and it can turn to very dry depending on the weather and what kind of skincare sequence/product that I use at that current time.

    Therefore, I often needed essence that will bring more moisturizer without blocking my pores. The problem having dry and acne prone skin is if I use moisturizer product too much it will block my pores and if I not using more moisturizer, the skin will be very dry, and it will peel off eventually.

    I already try out skincare product that will match my skin. I have to be careful while using the product and even makes ingredients list of what ingredients that will give my skin benefit and what to avoid, by making this blog that allowed me to share with you, who happened to have the same skin condition and same problem.


    ABOUT

    This essential contain Herb Saponin that extracted from wild yam, which can helps to build outer skin barrier to smooth out facial line, and volumize skin. The formula is free from Phenoxyethanol, uses Olive wax instead of beeswas which contain moisturizing effects with Vitamin E. No Addition of Mineral oil, Synthetic fragrance, Synthetic dyes, Synthetic preservatives, Animal-origin ingredients.
     How to use: After using toner, pump out 2-3 times, apply gently massaging along the skin surface.

    PRODUCT OUTLOOK

    The product is on sample size. The essence liquid color is light yellow.


    VERDICT

    I am in love with this product, however, the price is very expensive, which cost me S$ 80.00, and I think it’s not worth it since Clinique facial essence does give me enough moisturizer even thou, it is not as good as belif. I’m still looking for the seller that sell at a cheaper price, I will keep you posted on the new blog post of ‘shopping cheap branded skincare’ or you can subscribe to my blog to receive the article first hand. the form is available on the top.

    USE IT or LOSE IT: COSRX ADVANCED SNAIL 96 Mucin Power Essence review

    The form you are trying to view has been unpublished.

    Hi guys, welcome to another review of the facial essence. This time is Korean skincare brand that just recently reaches out to Singapore market which is Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. Before it available in Watson Singapore, I purchased it in a second-hand bottle on carousell app.

    If you are located in the area where the shopee app is available, I located in Singapore. I often go to this app and purchase beauty product. The seller on this app sells at a cheaper price. I purchased it in S$20.00, Watson sell about S$25.00+

    The product is shipped directly from Korea, which is why the seller at a cheaper price. So far my experience purchasing on this app is 100% trustable.

    While trying out Cosrx nail Essence 96, I find out that my skin likes it very much. There is no problem occur at all. This facial essence, I believe is formulated with a lightweight formula that will absorb quickly into my dry skin. This gives my skin smooth and hydrates my skin. I found myself rarely use sheet mask since I use this essence. I purchased my 2nd bottle. However, if I want to compare it with Clinique Even Better Essence or Belif line wrinkle essence, I will still choose belief. Since my skin is dry to very dry, this Cosrx can only work as clenching the thirst temporary, therefore I often use it twice and alongside with 2 layer of moisturiser like I often do. Unless, if I use occlusive, that will definitely work fine.

    My skincare sequence will be divided by:

    Facial wash, C serum, B hydration serum, Cosrx Snail Advanced Snail Essence 96, 2 layers of moisturiser, face oil serum.

    or,

    Facial wash, C serum, B hydration serum, Cosrx Advanced Snail Essence 96, 2 layer of moisturizer/Cicapair from Dr. Jart +, Occlusive Oil Balm from Dr. Jart+ and face oil.

    Above skincare sequence doesn’t block my pores, this is why I explain to you. In case, you need some insight on ‘how-to’ trick skincare sequence.

    This snail essence to me is a good product and solve my dry skin. However, if you really want something that is more moisturizing, you should try to check belif line wrinkle essence or firming essence, both products will give you enough moisturizer without the need to use it twice. Yet, if you have a dry skin or undergo acne treatment, you should think about to use Occlusive, face oils and Cicapair – because these 3 skincare products will reproduce your skin moist, especially for those who undergo acne treatment. Your skin will become very dry after the treatment.

    If you happened to be so aware of skin problem when using this product, try asking for sample. I don’t know if Watson have it but for Belif product, you can go to the store and ask for a sample. the review will be available next week.

    USE IT or LOSE IT: CLINIQUE EVEN BETTER ESSENCE LOTION Review

    USE IT or LOSE IT: CLINIQUE EVEN BETTER ESSENCE LOTION Review

    Product Update

    date: 1 September 2018

    I just find out that Clinique decided to stop this product and changes into another product with similar ingredients. I have still no ideas the reason why they wanted to change but my assumption is the brand want to stay relevant in beauty community ever since there are lots of indie brands that overflowing and catching up to high-end brands.

    It’s common for Clinique to every now and then doing this type of marketing things, remember Bronze Goddess heat wave highlighter, after became limited edition, Clinique decided to sell the highlighter in different packaging and pattern printing. Of course, people who are brand crave will buy so but nowadays, people tend to stick to their gut and without being invincible just eating up all the marketing strategy that brands are doing. Another product replacement is Clinique Moisture Surge to Clinique 72 hour auto replenishing hydrator, I haven’t yet use the product but planning too since I love moisture surge but they no longer available therefore I was planning to just give 72 hour hydrator a tryout.

    Imo, Clinique really need to get into a meeting with all the department and implement new strategy or else, they will lose up to the game. People can spot it easily. I and my team decided to email Clinique and asked them, the reason they want to reinvent the product. Let’s see how they gonna say about it and will update on this article, Should you wanna know the reason, feel free to subscribe to the newsletter.
