SILKYGIRL-Unleash Your Confident

Hello everyone,

New Year's Eve is coming soon and here I am writing a post since this holiday I'm going nowhere and stick by for a home renovation =^__^= There's tons needed to be done and remember there's an exciting event last week with SILKYGIRL.

I know the brand since 4 or maybe 5 years ago when I still live in Singapore and this affordable brand always bring modesty in their product's image. A "girl next door" ambassador with a fresh look, suitable for daily look, light and I think it was made for those whose young in age and at heart too.

The event is held on a Friday night at Mega Kuningan area, yes, I hear you, it's a mad traffic on Friday night and finally, I reached after 3 hours on the road.

The event just begin to warm up, media and beauty bloggers are ready to become a part of SILKYGIRL campaign on Magic Pink Lip Balm. However, an introduction was made with all the products given. Each table are equipped with a box of SILKYGIRL's cosmetics.

I'm ready to play with mine but dinner time has arrived and all the quests are enjoying the meal given with sweet desserts too.

Soon after the MC and Ms. Annisa (SILKYGIRL) greeted us and the event started with trying on the products right in front of each of us.

The bloggers are eager and amongst the first to try.

While we were 'playing' with the beauty products,
Ms.Gutawa appeared and share her testimonials of how she uses and loves Magic Pink Lip Balm. She uses it in London where she get her education now.

I'll share with you my review on the next posts and the press releases as well of Magic Pink Lip Balm.

From the ingredients, testimonial, and experiences in using the Magic Pink Lip Balm and the rest of the products given. The ones that in the box, let's open it shall we?


Eyeshadow palette, BB Cream, Eyeliner in pencil and gel, 2-way foundation and lipstick. And later on we were given the Magic Pink Lip Balm to bring home.


I'm using Moisture Rich Lipcolor No.25 Hot

Details from

The lipstick feels so smooth and easy to be used. Providing the lips moisture and a color that not so bold.


The eyeshadow in No.5 Smokey Charm swatches.

It includes an interesting selection of pigment-rich eye shadows from classic neutrals to bright funky colors – you can create any look that you desire The Blockbuster Color Palette is sure to guarantee you eyes-cellent performance.


Magic BB Cream

Magic BB Cream is an all-in-one product that acts as a moisturizer, makeup base, concealer and foundation that comes with sun protection and lightening properties. Contains Hyaluronic Acid to prevent fine lines and Vitamin E Derivatives to fight against free radicals. With its Brightening Powder, skin will appear brighter through continuous use of the cream. The result – skin that looks like it’s been reborn. SPF 25 / PA++.

The BB Cream only comes in 2 shades and I find the lightest one to be a bit too dark for my face. But, I'll test on the coverage, staying power and comfort, later on.

The eyeliner pencil, mine is in 08.Frosty Silver and it can be used as an eyeshadow as well. Just draw them and smudge accordingly to the outer side of the lids.
I've used it as an eyeliner for the inner corner of the eyes and all the way down. Leave the outer corner with dark liner for an appearance of bigger eye. The eyeliner does have staying power but not waterproof.

So soft and smooth, these kohl liners will not tug or drag at the eyelids. It can even double-up as an eye shadow. Available in 10 funky shades.

Pantene Nature Care Conditioner Smoothness & Life

Hi everyone,

I'm here with another product from Pantene. Lately, I've been checking out their stuffs since it seems like they more items with better ingredients, shampoo with no silicone and conditioner with no paraben.

One more thing, I've checked their new website and the information provided is pretty neat, just go directly to the products tab, since the front page seems to have a bit of a problem nowadays.

Details from Pantene Indonesia:
Dirancang untuk menutrisi dan melindungi rambut agar lebih halus, lembut, ringan bebas terurai tanpa membuatnya lepek karena bahan-bahan berlebih. Diperkaya dengan vitamin Pro-V dan bahan-bahan dari tumbuhan seperti Aloe Vera, Calendula dan essens Jahe. Tak mengandung Paraben.
Langkah 2: Melembabkan

Beside the product details there's also a how to use page which gives illustration. This is another bonus point that educate consumer in using their product accordingly. I see it as an effort from the company to help us ^__^

Now, the review from me.

I use the conditioner just like the instruction and it feels different. Start from the texture, most Pantene conditioner is silky, smooth and white. Slippery to the touch. The Nature Care Conditioner is yellowish, creamy and doesn't feels as slippery as the others (Conditioners from Pantene). The feeling on the hair is also like that, not as slippery as the rest of Pantene's Conditioner I know, the scent is milder, the texture is a bit rougher, conditioned the hair in a gentler way, suitable for normal hair or those who are looking for a lightweight protection. For a chemically damaged hair like me won't find it enough, I need a heavy duty conditioner that fixed, deeply moisturized and give back the hair strength.

The packaging is simple and nice, with accents of "natural environment". I think the conditioner comes in different sizes.

Overall, it's a conditioner for normal hair with no paraben and easy on the wallet. Use it after shampooing and don't let it touch the scalp or hair near the roots.

XL Professionnel Spa Hair Mask Regenerating

Hello girls,

Recently since I'm home a lot for the holiday and love to pamper myself =^__^= I'm trying thing item which I haven't try before, after using it for a month comes a thought to make a review.

Details from

Perawatan yang kaya akan conditioner dengan Collagen untuk memberikan perlindungan pada rambut berwarna dari akar hingga ujung rambut. Menjaga keindahan warna rambut agar tetap berkilau.
Mengatasi rambut bercabang dan kusut setelah treatment. Rambut lebih terawat, indah, elastis, lembut, halus dan mudah diatur.

Details from the packaging:

Shampoo hair and towel dry. Apply evenly to hair, gently working through to ends. Leave for 10-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly and style.


The hair mask texture is somewhat gooey, like a mixture of lotion, cream and soft jellies. The white cream smells a bit like white musk, a flowery and like powdery too, definitely not overwhelming. I use it after deep cleansing the hair strands and put the mask onto the hair (avoiding the scalp). Massage gently and comb the hair using fingers. Cover the masked hair using shower caps for 10-15 minutes. Then rinse everything off with clean water (warm/hot water is not needed). When rinsing the hair does feel silkier and smoother with less tangled. The scent last for 2-3 hours but the hair does feel softer until the next wash. However, the product won't be suitable enough for the hair that chemically over-processed. Dry, slightly damaged, and colored will find it useful for the less tangles and soft feeling but wont fixed the hair structure and filled in the coarse hair strands. But hey, for around Rp. 60.000 the product does what it cost.

Sexy Look Extra Brightening Duo Lifting Mask

Hi sexy laydeeeh!

Sexy Look is back with more masks, and this time it's not just about a brighter look but lifted up too.

A purple hue and seems so plain too, hmm, the box design's doesn't impress me at all. I wish it was fancier like the Moisturizing Black Cotton Mask.

Behind is the product details and on the side there's the instruction with images too.

Gently pull out from the packaging and put on both of your ears and feel the mask being pulled to each sides, leaving less wrinkle and then put the lower mask all the way so the double chin are all tucked in heehee, and securely put the holes on the ears again and voila!
A mask that can be used with a secure fastened sides and give that lifting boost as well.

These are the details from the press release and below are my pictures using it.

The most unique thing about the mask is how tight it can be by pulling the loop holes, so it provide better smoothness and less lines after the mask, however, the upper lips are covered with the mask while the area below the lower lips are exposed. So, if you happen to have a face structured as the mask, you might find it easy to fit in, while others? Don't.

Now the effect of the mask,

from the good quality of the mask my skin feel hydrated and does have a lifting effect, especially from the lower part that hooked on the ears. There is a brightening effect too, although not visible during photo shoots. I like the fact that the mask is gentle enough for my sensitive cheeks and the tight fittings gives me freedom to move around unlike other conventional facial paper mask. Will I use it again? Definitely! I like a mask that unique in terms of shape, gentle to the skin, and give less lines (from the after mask effect), hydrating and help pulled up my double chins ^__--

Mario Badescu Cellufirm Drops

Hi everyone!

Wow, this is the last item I have from Luxola at the moment and yes, it's another one from Mario Badescu.

Details from

Firm, tighten and smooth aging skin with this daily or overnight serum that is safe for all over the face and eye area. Plumping Collagen and Elastin, moisture retaining Hyaluronic Acid, antioxidant Vitamin E and mineral rich Seaweed Extract are the active ingredients that preserve the skin’s tone, moisture levels and elasticity.

How to Use: After cleansing and toning apply 4-5 drops on face and neck. Safe for eye area. Follow with moisturizer or night cream. May be used twice daily.

Beauty Tip: Apply twice daily under eye cream for firming and moisturizing results.
Ingredients: Collagen, Seamollient, Retinyl Palmitate, Hyaluronic Acid, Hydrolyzed Elastin, Tocopherol,Hydrolyzed Glycosaminoglycans,Dermonectin, Bladderwrack Extract,Imidazolidinyl Urea, Filagrinol,RNA,Herbal Extract

I've been using this serum for a while, and from the smell, texture and feeling on the skin is wonderful. Let's start the review of this green creamy gel like lotion from the herbal scent that's fresh and easy to the nose, to the oh-so-light felling on the skin and probably that's why the serum can be used for the eye's area as well.

I feel the hydrating effect almost instantly and it gives my skin like a silky effect with the feeling of elastic as in bouncy. I find the serum suitable for twice a day usage and I used it with varieties of brands of pre-serum, moisturizer, toner, etc. During the day when I like to keep things light and not oily the serum works well as when at night when I'm pairing it with a very hydrating moisturizer to stay all night long. For me, it works both ways ^__^ another bonus point? Can be use for the neck too.

Kate Wide Edge Eyes by Kanebo

Hi everyone,

from my recent trip to Japan, I bought these goodies from Kate. I've been a fan of Kate's eye shadows for the amazing sparkling effect since 5 years ago and for me they are among the first that keep giving sparks to the eyes in the vividly natural way possible.

Nowadays, there are many other brands and variety as well, we have plenty of choices in getting our eyes dazzling.

Mine is in PU-1. I love how easy and simple the product is, blending has never become easier and the fine texture of the powder makes it worth every penny to purchase. The look changed into wider eyes but still in the softness and delicate tones of Japanese makeup.

Here is my look from yesterday's event with Boss. The dark shade can easily gives me a smokey eyes, the white base is super fine and soft, suitable as a base before everything else and as a highlighter for the nose, the purple is a hue that so delicate and definitely no color block here, and the beige, light brown and cream is the complements for everything else and make a wonderful harmony.

I rarely use a primer prior using eyeshadow and with Kate Wide Edge Eyes? I don't feel the need to.

Naris Excentia Face Up Day and Night Cream

Hello ladies,

as soon as I turned 30, I know that my skin will slowly changed, not necessarily means for the less than before but there are some differences in texture, hydration level, ability to adapt and growth. In return, the skin doesn't create as much oil as before but I'm still in need of hydration and creams that provide lifting effect.

Naris, a brand from Japan has a range called Excentia made for those conditions mention above, these are the details:
Age :30 – 40
Menyamarkan dan memperlambat timbulnya tanda-tanda penuaan.
Bercak hitam
Kulit kering, kasar dan kusam
Keriput, kerut dan kendur
Pori membesar
Warna kulit tidak merata

I have received the Day and Night Cream months and months ago and now, after a series of trying, observing, and exploring, here are my thoughts.

Excentia Face Up Day Creme

Pelembab untuk membantu menyamarkan dan memperlambat tanda-tanda penuaan. Merawat
kelembaban dan kesehatan kulit di siang hari. Bebas pewarna dan pengharum.
Cara pakai:
Gunakan pada wajah yang sudah bersih. Ambil krem secukupnya dengan ujung jari yang bersih. Usapkan dengan lembut dan merata keseluruh wajah.

Bahan aktif
(untuk Day & Night Creme):
• Collagen
Protein alami bagi kulit yang dapat menahan air sehingga kulit tetap lembab.
Membantu proses regenerasi sel kulit yang dapat mengurangi kulit kusamdan keriput.
• Ekstrak Horse Chestnut: memperbaiki elastisitas kulit, membuat kulit kencang dan lentur.
• Vitamin A:
membantu mengecilkan pori-pori.
meluruhkan sel kulit mati. Proses regenerasi sel kulit ini membantu mengurangi keriput /kulit
menipiskan bercak hitam.

The day cream is lighter than the night, feels 'easier' on the skin while the night cream feels heavier. The cream even thou' they doesn't have fragrance, the smell is still very good and fragrant. Like really fragrant that I doubt the word free from fragrant.

The cream is like a marriage between lotion and cream, feel luxurious on the skin and feels a bit sticky when applied but they'll melt on the skin,left only a bit stickiness after a minute or so (heehee, still sticky but not that sticky).  The skin will feel an instant suppleness, lifting, firming, hydrated and I'm a fan of this bouncy effect on the skin. Then after around 5 minutes the stickiness is gone, later on the cream somehow like creating a film and feels watery on the skin. A bit glossy/shiny at the finishing, which I think some people would prefer covering up with some loose powder for a matte effect. But if ones prefer a healthy glow, no need to cover it with makeup. Let the skin gets the credit by looking vibrant. 

Excentia Face Up Night Creme

Pelembab untuk membantu menyamarkan dan memperlambat tanda-tanda penuaan. Merawat
kelembaban dan kesehatan kulit pada saat istirahat di malam hari. Bebas pewarna dan
Cara pakai:
Gunakan pada wajah yang sudah bersih. Ambil krem secukupnya dengan ujung jari yang bersih. Usapkan dengan lembut dan merata ke seluruh wajah.

The night cream, like mentioned above it's a heavier version from the day cream. Same texture, scent and color (white). Yet on the skin I can feel it being richer. It makes the skin stays hydrated and moist all night long and waking up with no oily or grease left, but when put on there are some greasy feeling. Not overly greasy, let's say 3 out of 5. Like a healthy glow but when your spouse kisses you on the cheek, he'll complain about the 'rich' feeling.

Overall, both products gives the skin moisturizing and hydrating effect, feels richer (the night cream does richer than the day), feels a bit sticky (the night cream again feels stickier), fragrant, white and a mix between lotion and cream, looks like there are some very tiny sparkling particles at the cream, long lasting (like up to 8 hours), gives the skin a lifting and firming effect, also healthier look, moist, supple and bouncier. Suitable for those with dry skin and looks dull, since the cream will provide moisture and the 'shines' will provide a perkier looking skin.  The product definitely suitable for those whose already in the range of 30's and won't be suitable for those below. Since usually younger skin still have enough moisture and oils plus collagen too. The creams will feels too much on them, in fact, too heavy as well. So, they are definitely made for the one in their 30's up to 40's.
For me, the cream is perfect for 'at home' usage heehee, When I'm going out, I'll prefer a lighter cream so the makeup stays intact better.

I will give the products to my mom now and tests observe the result for those above 50

All product details are from the Official Press Release.

ZAP's New Treatment

Hi everybody,

last week I was invited by ZAP to promote the new Beauty Center.

The location is still in the same place as ZAP hair removal, which is at Woltermonginsidi, Kebayoran Baru. With a cafe right below and free wifi, those who wait for our treatment can happily assist us and enjoy a nice meal . . . and I hope someday they'll make it a non-smoking area, as it is inside an air-con room.

When I'm arrived the event already started, I blamed the traffic that day. The beautiful doctor is explaining about the treatments, how it works, and how to make it possible. The Q&A's also run so well, the audience is excited and seems eager to know more. Who doesn't?! The Photo Facial, Pore & Wrinkle Reduction, all sounds so interesting and too good to be true. Say good bye to dark spots, large pores and wrinkle never sounds easier.

With many promotions and comfortable spaces, I move on to the second floor to try on the treatments. I'm trying the one for the eyes.

Eyes? Yes, the Pore & Wrinkle Reduction is available for overall full face or just the eyes.

Below is the price list:

You may click any images to see it in larger view.

Now, as I enter the room, it was comfy and I must say, I'm a bit afraid, afraid that it might be painful. I see those machines and somehow got chicken out.

But I assured you the treatment is unlike those facial treatments in some places where pain is one of the key ingredients, here, the beauty treatments are comfortable and fast. Yes, very fast! In terms of treatment time and showing result.

From the machines for body, they also have a skin analizer, I get to know my skin's age, wrinkles, lines, dark spots and other condition as well.

Now, let's see the result of my eye treatment, shall we?!

A 10 minutes process has reduced fine lines at my eyes, visibly seen under the eyes but not the eye bags. The treatment start with cleaning the eyes, put a lubricant and massage the area with a metal thingy, 5 minutes per eye and done! Very fast right?! Now, I must say when using a contact lenses it is best to remove it first before the treatment so it wont keep being pressed. I feel discomfort when the metal thingy run on top of the eye balls.

And after the eyes are treated, ZAP kindly gave me a treatment for the tummy, since I have a lot of stretchmarks and the skin are sagging (so no image ya, I'm too embarrass to show anyone), the treatment is 40 minutes and it was comfortable. After the treatment, the skin does appears smoother and softer but since only the skin (not the muscle) so overall the area is still 'going down'. So I need another treatment and ZAP will also caters the need of slimming ^0^ hooray!

Stay tune for more news regarding ZAP!

Skin Inc Age-Revival Stem Cell Serum

Hello ladies,

yesterday I've shared an awesome product from Skin Inc (click ME!) which gives an instant result on the skin, now this product is different, not completely the contrary, just not as instant as the Pure Snow White Mask.


Details from the Press Release:

Once Upon An Apple
Three apples changed the world, they say.
Eve ate one, another fell on Newton’s head,
and Steven Jobs built the third.
Now, Skin Inc has perfected the fourth.
And packed it into the world’s best
anti-ageing salve.

From the Tree of Knowledge to the Fountain of Youth, here’s one
more compelling reason to bite into the forbidden fruit.
Skincare experts have discovered a rare and endangered
Japanese species of apple that helps to protect the longevity of skin
cells by maintaining its self-renewal capacity at a DNA level. And
Skin Inc has bottled this miraculous ingredient into the revolutionary
Skin Inc Age-Revival Stem Cell Serum.

The New Apple Care
Marking a new era in anti-ageing skincare, this product moves
beyond dousing skin in active ingredients to literally re-programme
skin at a DNA level to fight ageing on its own. That’s right, at the
core of Skin Inc Age-Revival Stem Cell Serum is an advanced apple
stem cell technology that energises skin to generate new tissues
faster, fend off UV damage, and preserve its vitality for longer.
That said, don’t go creating your own DIY apple masks from the
grocer’s just yet. The key ingredient in this super age-defence
serum is Malus Domestica, a rare and endangered species of apple
which dates back to the mid-18th century when the seedling plant
was first discovered to possess an incredible ability to remain in
pristine condition without shriveling when stored away for extended
periods of time.

To tap into such astounding self-preservation abilities, Skin Inc
cultivated this apple through a Plant Cell Culture Technology in the
most advanced laboratories of Japan, and encapsulated it to
enhance absorption into the deeper layers of skin. The result: a
stem cell serum that imbues skin with the self-recovery and self regeneration
prowess of the ‘forbidden fruit’.

Nature Meets Science
Apple stem cells are not the only anti-ageing actives in this powerpacked
serum. In fact, Skin Inc Age-Revival Stem Cell Serum
marries nature’s finest bounty with high-tech anti-ageing
ingredients, including:

TOMATO AND GRAPE EXTRACTS: Super-antioxidants that fight
degeneration and soothe inflammation.

ARGAN TREE EXTRACT: Plumps skin with essential fatty acids
and resists oxidation more effectively than olive oil. It is traditionally
used to treat skin diseases, and is hard to find outside its region of
production as it is sold as a luxury item.

HERB EXTRACTS: Aid in brightening and evening out skin tone
SOY ISOFLAVONES: Regenerate and replenish estrogen, an
important female hormone that stimulates metabolism and cell
growth for a thicker epidermis, and tauter, smoother and more
luminous skin.

COLLAGEN: Refines skin for finer pores and smoother skin texture.
HYALURONIC ACID: Amps up the moisture factor for hydrated and
bouncy skin.

7 Times More Potent
Skin Inc Age-Revival Stem Cell Serum is formulated with one of the
highest percentages of active ingredients in any skincare serum –
7 times the percentage found in most popular anti-ageing serums.*
Use it daily as a 4-week intensive anti-ageing programme or as a
booster serum to power up your customised Skin Inc My Daily Dose
Serum, and banish fine lines, pigmentation, pores and saggy skin.
After cleansing, simply pump this sleek silver serum applicator once
and roll over lines, wrinkles and other areas of concern. Massage
into skin gently and follow with Skin Inc My Daily Dose Serum for
perfectly airbrushed skin.

True story. For the first time in modern history, the latest lifechanging
Apple is not a phone. No offence, Steve Jobs.
*Based on the market average of popular anti-ageing products.


This is my four week treatments, separated in four tubes for freshness and these small pre-serums hopefully going to make a differences for my skin, for the better.

I know for sure Stem Cell is a hit 'ingredient' at the moment. Almost all brands has come up with skincare with Stem Cell. So there's a lot of options out there, just make sure to choose the one that suits the skin's need and effective as well.


The packaging is neat but when if you're staying abroad and taking them on a baggage, remember to put some papers or tissue on the spaces so they wont collide and stays 'standing up' on their own places.
I've been using the pre-serum for almost a week now, so I'm still in week one bottle. The pre-serum is used on a cleaned and toned skin and right before serum. So, a serum is still needed after using the Age-Revival Stem Cell Serum. After the serum? A moisturizer of course.


I pumped once, just like the instructions, then roll the metal ball on places that I think need some refining, revitalizing, re-plumping, regenerating, re-smoothing, and let's just say, looks younger, healthier and better.

There's some tiny white dots that easily gone when massaged into the skin and there's no feeling of sensitivity, allergy reactions, discomfort or whatsoever on the skin. It doesn't feel anything actually. So, it was just like putting some light soft watery gelatin made out of pure H20. Usually anti aging products are well known for being heavy, so rich and yes, sticky on the skin. This one is oh-so-not ^__^

I'll keep you updated every week, so stay tune ya!

Here's my update (4 weeks usage),

Each tube last 1 week plus instead of 1 week flat.

Every week the skin gain elasticity and firming action. I look the differences between week 1 and week 4 to be quite amazing. Finer lines are disappearing and deeper lines to be less visible. The main attraction is definitely the reducing of wrinkles.

4 weeks of using Skin Inc Age-Revival Stem Cell Serum is able to bring me back 2-3 years ago in terms of younger skin (of course all other skincare need to be use along as well, so far I've been using various brands with this pre-serum). The skin bounce back in time, feel and looks firmer as well.

Must try! A fresh pre-serum that's also give skin a fresher younger looking skin with less lines and wrinkles.

Skin Inc is
currently available in Singapore, Spain, Vietnam, Brunei, Dubai, Lithuania and Hong Kong

Pure Snow White+ Mask

Hello ladies!

Facial masks are one of the items that I use on weekly basis. A good facial masks are filled with concentrate of superios, wonderful, juicy and sometime spectacular ingredients that will gives the skin an instant effect.

Pure Snow White+ Mask from Skin Inc, is one of them.

Details from the Press Release:

Pure Snow White+ Mask –
Unveil Perfect Fairness in 10 Minutes
14 February (Singapore) – Get a glowing complexion in less time than it takes for a catnap? Ensure poreless skin?
Achieve an air-brushed finish with just a dollop of foundation? The bright promises of Skin Inc’s Pure Snow White+ Mask are no fiction, but the alchemy of more than 16 potent ingredients from the world’s first skin cocktail bar.
The technology may be mind-boggling, but the premise is simple. For snow white skin, the secret is to draw out skin darkening melanin, prevent further pigmentation and reflect maximum light.

Think of this as a whitening ‘force field’
When a thin layer of this mask is slathered over skin, a field of positive ions form over the skin that pulls negatively charged melanin ions from deep within the skin to its surface. This unique ion attraction technology neutralises negative ions, purges skin-darkening melanin, and gives you instantly brighter and more translucent skin after just one application.

A beauty paradox
Fact: Your body actually produces unsightly pigmentation to protect your skin, not to harm it. While you are basking in the sun, your skin signals the body to trigger the action of an enzyme called tyrosinase, which helps it to produce melanin cells to shield your skin from UV rays.
Scutellaria Baicalensis, an extract from the root of a plant from the mint family, present in the Pure Snow White+ Mask can regulate the actions of this spot-forming enzyme, while preventing general skin darkening and sunburns. In fact, just one per cent of this potent potion can control 100 per cent of tyrosinase production. This preemptive approach to whitening prevents pigmentation from forming in the first place, and saves you from expensive lasers in the foreseeable future.
Another important complexion brightener is licorice root extract, which also inhibits tyrosinase and melanin production, giving you glowing skin that’s a few shades lighter after just one month of use.

Banish pores instantly
Scutellaria Baicalensis is also a powerful astringent, known to shrink pore size after one application, revealing flawless baby soft skin!

A fundamental whitening truth
Which brings us to a simple law of physics: The more light that is reflected from skin, the brighter it appears. Pure Snow White+ Mask not only minimizes pores with Scutellaria Baicalensis, it moisturises and plumps skin with Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Natto Gum, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract and Hyaluronic Acid for a smooth, even surface so that light bounces off perfectly.
It also improves the light-reflecting quality of skin by absorbing and lightening melanin with a cocktail of ingredients such as Magnesium, Chorella Vulgaris extract and Aluminium Silicate, and reflects UV rays with YTitanium. The result: the beautiful, soft glow of healthy skin that no makeup can duplicate.

Turn back the clock with these youth generators
Like all Skin Inc products, the Pure Snow White+ Mask also multi-tasks to address all your skin needs
simultaneously. Its rich cocktail of super ingredients such as Chlorella Vulgaris Extract, an algae extract choc a bloc with carotenoids, and amino acids prevent photo-ageing and provide the building blocks of proteins that form each collagen unit within the skin.
Other key youth generators include Panax Ginseng Root Extract, which minimises fine lines and wrinkles, as well as minerals and herbal extracts to rev up blood circulation, collagen production and rejuvenation for a youthful glow.
For intensive SOS, use twice a week for 28 days to achieve noticeable brightening and the lightening of unsightly age spots, scars and sun spots.

After cleansing, simply apply the mask on the face for 10 minutes, and remove with warm water. You may feel a slight tingling sensation due to the ionisation process. Remove mask if further irritation occurs.

A one-time application will reap you these benefits:
1. Whiter and more translucent skin.
2. Visible decrease in pore size. Studies in Japan have shown results of decreased pore size by up to 50 per cent.
3. A perfect canvas for makeup application.

Use it weekly for a month, and see:
1. Renewed skin and improved skin condition
2. Greatly reduced pigmentation, as brighter, translucent skin is revealed.
3. A reduction in pigmentation formation.
4. Smoother skin, and improvements to acne-plagued skin.
5. Reduced sebum production and increased moisture levels.
From mid-March, Skin Inc Pure Snow White+ Mask will retail for $268 at all Skin Inc
concept and specialty stores.

TOP GLOW-GETTERS - For visibly fairer skin
Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate – otherwise known as licorice root extract, this is a nature’s whitener. By inhibiting the skin’s tyrosinase and melanin production, it visibly brightens skin, while restoring skin suppleness and soothing irritation to boot.
Ascorbyl Glucoside – a stable form of Vitamin C and an antioxidant that inhibits the synthesis of melanin.
Morus Alba Root Extract – has anti-inflammatory and whitening effects.
Y-Titanium Dioxide – a colourant that reflects UV rays to give an instant whitening visual effect.

Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract – has strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, hydrating and soothing properties to balance out skin tone, for an even glow.
ANTI-AGEING AGENTS - To turn back the clock
Chlorella Vulgaris Extract – an algae extract that has powerful anti-ageing benefits due to its rich source of carotenoids (a family of nutrients that protect skin from the harmful effects of UV rays). It is also loaded with amino acids (eg, lysine, proline, glycine and alanin) that are essential building blocks of proteins and constitute each individual collagen unit.
Panax Ginseng Root Extract – balances sebum production and helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles in mature skin. Rich in Vitamin B, this antioxidant also regenerates, moisturises and refreshes skin.
Hydroxyapatite – a mineral found naturally in teeth and bones, boosts the gradual in-growth of collagen into soft tissue to firm and tone skin.
Equisetum Arvense Extract – an herbal extract that boosts circulation and the rejuvenation of connective tissues to firm and tone skin.
Pueraria Lobata Root Extract – a powerful anti-inflammatory that calms skin, and improves microcirculation and skin’s natural immunity.

PORE MINIMISERS - To dramatically reduce pore size
Scutellaria Baicalensis – an extract from the root of Koganebana, a plant from the mint family, this flavonoid has astringent, anti-inflammation, anti-allergy and antibacterial properties. It absorbs UV rays, reduces pore size, prevents oxidation and forestalls ageing.

HYDRATING HEROES - For an even and dewy complexion
Natto Gum - protects the skin with a thin layer of film to stem water loss from skin’s surface, and also effectively penetrates deep to hydrate the skin.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract – derived from the aloe vera plant, this brings relief to irritated, inflamed or sensitive skin, and moisturises dry skin to treat flakiness.
Hyaluronic Acid – this moisture magnet holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Creates a protective barrier around skin and stimulates collagen repair.
Sodium Hyaluronate – replenishes lost moisture and rebalances skin’s hydration levels.

Fabulous isn't it?! When I was first introduced to the product I can't help but wonder and honestly, in awe. I've tried their Collagen Mask before and for sure I know it was top notch, so I believe this product will gives amazing result as well.

The texture is unique, like a marriage between jello, double cream, clay, agar, jelly, and pudding. It was gooey, smooth, soft, and firm at the same time. Heehee 【ツ】 I would love to play with the texture alone.

Scent? Hmm, somewhat scent-less and like a soft-faint clay like scent, which is kinda like nothing. I use it on a clean skin and just scoop the mask with the spatula given, and swipe it over the skin. The masks will easily spread over, like margarine.
I don't feel any tingling sensation on my face but felt a bit on the back of my hand (some leftovers that I spread over). I waited more than 10 minutes (like maybe 15). On the back of my hand when it's just a thin layers the masks are dried up, while on the face (maybe I use too much?) doesn't feel as dry as the one on the hand.

Rinse everything with lukewarm water and using a konjac sponge to help out. The skin feels soft, smooth, supple and moisturized.

Below is my before, during and after images (after just one usage).

Visibly fairer looking skin, less redness = less irritation, less visible pores and it's all just 15 minutes away

No dryness, no feeling of the skin being pulled, stretch or any other form of discomfort.

On the back of my hand (below images) where the before is my right hand and the after is my left hand, the result also the same. Fairer skin, no dullness and the skin does appears younger than the right. Less wrinkles and fine lines.

This is a very remarkable result and as I keep using the masks twice a week, I will keep you updated of my skin's condition after a month.
