from the recent event with ASTALIFT, I brought home a set and try them recently. Due to it's nature I can only give a review of 1 week max, so consider this post as first impression ^__^
In Japan, there are many samples sold in the marketplace. Varieties of brands are offering travel sizes as a tool for customer to try before purchasing a full size item. Now, I see ASTALIFT also selling this minis on their counter, the price is around Rp.150.000.
There are 6 items in the set and a details plus brochure is included. So anyone could just read the details plus there's a how to guide as well. From massaging technique to printed information. All of them in Japanese but the photos are quite clear showing how to's. The amount of product needed in each step also shown. Wow! Japan are very precised in details for sure.
Start with a cleansing gel to remove all the makeup. Gently melt the gel on the palm before massaging the face with it.
It was wonderful, I love the Damask Rose scent, the texture of the gel. Watch out don't let the gel get into the eyes, it sting. I use the gel to clean waterproof mascara which perhaps eye makeup remover will be better for the sensitive eye area.
Still, on the skin, the gel feels really good and thoroughly clean everything it touches.
All those makeup are gone (incl. the waterproof mascara with a bit of the gel get into the eyes, my bad) and dissolving themselves in the gel. I add a bit of water to emulsify and then rinse everything off. Move on to step 2.
The cleansing foam or Moisture Foam in ASTALIFT world. This creamy lathery cleanser are so easy to bubbles up. Creating a fine white foam abundantly. Always lather a cleansing foam before touching the face, so it's the bubbles that cleanse.
Just like the cleansing gel, massage the foam onto the skin until every side, angle and in between are foamed. Once rinse the face feel clean . . . like almost squeaky clean, like the limit between really clean to overly striping the moisture completely off from the skin. I enjoy double cleansing so much that I keep repeating step 1 and 2 with or without makeup on.
Then, come the unique part. The Jelly.
Details from www.astalift.com.sg:
The epitome of all ASTALIFT's products - Jelly Aquarysta, is a unique anti-ageing phenomenon for every woman.
The uniquely named Aquarysta is derived from AQUA and CRYSTAL, which symbolises the light as water texture of the clear jelly, and the crystal-clear, moisturised skin it brings.
It is the first product to be used right after cleansing / washing in your daily skincare regime, and before lotion and emulsion.
This extraordinary revolutionary skincare formula targets visible signs of premature ageing: dark spots, lines and dull skin, delivering visibly younger, more luminous and 'replumped' skin.
|Key Ingredients: ||Size |
The unique texture of something that really similar to jelly or jell-o. On the skin the jelly will melt and distribution process become easier. The skin receives the jelly as well as a pleasing step on skincare routine. At first I thought it would be a sticky experience, it's not, somehow the formula just goes into the skin without any inconvenience traces. What's left on the skin is hydration and plumpness.
The bright orange is an enticing addition to the product, the team from ASTALIFT assured me not to worry, as the orange/red color will not stain the skin ^__^
Continue with lotion. The orange colored water is a delight to the skin, I use my hand to distribute the lotion (not cotton) and gently tap them over and add some pressure using the palm to some parts where the palm fit the area. Making sure to help absorption of the nourishing ingredients.
Step 5 is the essence.
Formulated with high concentrations of nano-Astaxanthin, nano-Lycopene, highly-permeable Resveratrol, Royal Jelly, skin firming Elastin and Collagen to effectively deliver anti-ageing goodness deep into the skin.
Use regularly to feel the bounce and suppleness on skin. See your skin return with vigour and enjoy luminescent skin.
- highly-permeable Resveratrol
- Royal Jelly
- Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate
- Damask Rose
A product that wins awards and one of the star product in the series. The texture is also unique, almost like an unset jelly. So cute and the skin accept them as it was their own. In fact, I think all products in ASTALIFT are penetrated easily into the skin. All of their texture feels so light but packed with a whole lotta goodness for the ageing skin. But without any feeling of overwhelming nor too much.
The last step would be the cream. The one that seals the whole moisture and nutrients from the outside world. Making sure the products applied before can stay intact on the skin, absorbed and enjoyed.
This is the cream, milky orange in color and rich in texture. I use it by dividing the cream into several spots on the face. Then, gently massage the cream on the skin with small circular motion.
The moisture stay with me all day long, I use them twice a day, in the morning after a shower and at night after cleaning the face or after a shower as well. The 6 steps might feel a bit much for some who haven't got used to it, but for me, it all took less than 3 minutes. I try to do it slower, since actually each step need time and proper massaging technique.
Overall, I think the set is quite convenient. It comes with all the product in the series where needed (complete set) and suitable for those who want to try before they make any purchasing. I know some other brand provide free samples, but usually the packaging is not as neat as ASTALIFT. The set gives me some ideas of the products, which are:
1. All of them is light in texture but none feel sticky on the skin.
2. The whole 6 steps doesn't overwhelmed my skin.
3. The brochure inside the box is nicely done, but I wish it comes in English or Bahasa for customer in Indonesia.
4. A great way to introduce the skin to the whole set in full size.
5. Love the naturally derived scent of Damask Rose in the range.
6. So far no allergy reaction nor undesired effect. Usually products contain collagen triggers acne on my skin.
7. I like the natural colors of the products (team ASTALIFT assured us it was not colored, but naturally from the ingredients).
8. I like the high technology behind these products which help the product penetrated better and faster on the skin with nanotechnology. You may read the details here: http://www.astalift.com.sg/the-brands/astalift/astalift-technology.html
And with all those reasons, I want to try the full size products and other collection from ASTALIFT.
Thank you ASTALIFT Indonesia.
