KIN Fresh Milk For Everyone


Hello lovelies,

This time I want to share with you dairy products from KIN.

-*-




Some of you perhaps wondering what is KIN has got to do with beauty, oh babe, everything that is healthy, made you pretty for sure. We need to take care our overall health to achieve that wholesome beauty. You can always be sure that beauty is from within as well as seen from the outside. Like imagine yourself getting sick most of the time, you wont be able to go outside and do as much as those who are healthy, yet we need to expose ourself to fresh air and the delightful morning sun.

-*-





These are KIN Fresh Milk that comes in three variant, chocolate, coffee and fresh milk in original as in plain.

I don't really drink milk on daily basis, what, why? I don't feel comfortable in taking them, especially when they are on their own, mostly since it can gives me like a diarrhea. It's not severe, but it's not really convenient from time to time, especially when I'm on the go, traveling or during an event. I don't want to go to the toilet over and over again in a day. It's troublesome. So I avoided all milk at all cost... turns out, there's a different kind of milk, an A2 cows.

-*-




Let me explain the table above, it shows that nowadays the protein in the cow's milk is mostly A1, which is the type of protein that cause the stomach to feel uncomfortable while protein A2 is the type that was used to be served. Bloaty feeling and other discomfort also mostly caused by protein A1. Now, KIN Fresh Milk is the type of milk with Protein A2 and 100% pure without any addition or anything taken, hence everyone can drink KIN Fresh Milk in comfort. Including me heehee, finally I can have a taste of fresh milk again without worry.

These high class cow are the source of all KIN Fresh Milk and the reason will be getting protein A2. If you;re still curious, do check out their website and instagram account:
• Website : www.kindairy.com
• Instagram : @kindairyid
And Kin Fresh Milk is now available at  mini market / supermarket near you. Convenient right?!

Here's a bit of Pers Release to understand about KIN Fresh Milk even better


Jakarta, September 2018 – Kemajuan penelitian dan teknologi telah banyak menghadirkan terobosan yang memberikan kebaikan bagi kehidupan manusia.  Dalam beberapa tahun terakhir, pengembangan industri susu sapi perah telah menemukan sapi jenis A2 yang dipercaya dapat menghasilkan susu yang lebih baik bagi tubuh manusia.
Berdasarkan data Kementerian Pertanian tahun 2016, konsumsi susu di Indonesia saat ini masih lebih rendah dibandingkan dengan negara ASEAN lainnya. Sebagian orang melewatkan manfaat dari susu sapi segar karena merasa mual, menimbulkan diare, atau karena alergi. Sementara manfaat susu sangat penting untuk pemenuhan nutrisi. Susu mengandung nutrisi lengkap yang terdiri dari protein, lemak, dan karbohidrat sebagai sumber energi, mineral, dan vitamin untuk mendukung fungsi tubuh.
Pakar gizi, dr. Rizal Alaydrus, MSc. menjelaskan, “Gejala mual, kembung, dan/atau diare setelah mengonsumi susu terjadi karena kandungan protein beta casein A1 dalam susu yang bereaksi dengan protein pencernaan lainnya di dalam tubuh, sehingga memicu gejala yang menyerupai intoleransi terhadap laktosa, seperti ketidaknyamanan perut, flatulensi (akumulasi gas berlebih dalam perut dari usus besar), kembung, dan diare yang terjadi setelah mengonsumsi produk susu.”
Susu sapi pada umumnya memiliki kandungan protein A1 dan protein A2 dengan rasio 40% dan 60%. Awalnya sapi di seluruh dunia hanya menghasilkan protein A2 saja, namun seiring berjalannya waktu dan adanya mutasi genetik, saat ini semakin banyak sapi yang menghasilkan susu dengan kandungan protein A1.
Saat ini, susu A2 tengah mendapat perhatian dari dunia kesehatan karena potensinya dalam menjadikan susu sapi lebih baik dari segi nutrisi maupun dari segi toleransi oleh sistem pencernaan. Susu yang hanya mengandung protein A2, dipercaya lebih mudah dicerna oleh tubuh dan nutrisinya lebih mudah diserap. Sapi A2 didapat dari proses seleksi alami dengan melalui seleksi tes DNA, tanpa rekayasa genetik.
PT ABC Kogen Dairy percaya bahwa setiap orang berhak mendapatkan nutrisi terbaik dari alam, oleh karena itu PT ABC Kogen Dairy menghadirkan terobosan baru lewat KIN Fresh Milk, susu segar dari sapi A2. Untuk menjamin kualitas susu yang dihasilkan, peternakan yang dikelola oleh PT ABC Kogen Dairy hanya memelihara jenis sapi A2, yang menghasilkan susu dengan kandungan protein A2 saja. Sebagai satu-satunya peternakan sapi terintegrasi yang menghasilkan susu dari sapi A2 secara eksklusif di Indonesia, seluruh sapi di peternakan KIN menjalani proses pemeriksaan ketat, dimulai dari kualitas kesehatan, kondisi hidup, hingga pemeriksaan DNA untuk memastikan susu yang dihasilkan tidak mengandung protein A1.
Anton Budiharjo, Marketing Manager KIN menjelaskan, “Sebagian orang banyak mengalami reaksi pada tubuhnya sesaat setelah mengonsumsi susu dan menganggap hal itu adalah normal. Reaksi yang dirasakan diantaranya adalah rasa tidak nyaman di perut seperti rasa kembung, eneg, bahkan mulas. Padahal seharusnya minum susu sama seperti kita mengonsumsi minuman lain yang tidak menimbulkan respon di perut. Banyak orang menduga hal ini disebabkan karena mereka lactose intolerant, padahal bisa jadi karena tubuhnya tidak dapat mencerna protein A1 yang terdapat dalam susu.”
Tiffany Pratiwi Suwandi, Brand Manager KIN menjelaskan, “KIN Fresh Milk merupakan produk susu segar pertama di Indonesia yang berasal dari sapi A2 dan hadir sebagai pilihan yang lebih baik bagi konsumen, karena tidak menimbulkan rasa eneg atau kembung akibat minum susu. Susu dari sapi A2 ini adalah 100% susu segar, tanpa ada yang ditambahkan atau dikurangi pada kandungannya. KIN Fresh Milk hanya mengandung protein A2 yang lebih bersahabat untuk perut, sehingga lebih mudah dicerna dan diserap dalam tubuh”.
KIN Fresh Milk hadir dalam 3 rasa favorit, yaitu Full Cream, Chocolate, dan Coffee. KIN Fresh Milk juga merupakan satu-satunya produk susu yang dikemas dalam botol dengan UV light barrier untuk menjamin kualitas produk tanpa bahan pengawet.
“Dengan ragam rasa Kin Fresh Milk yang tersedia, konsumen memiliki kebebasan untuk menikmati manfaat murni dari susu sapi segar tanpa khawatir akan timbulnya rasa eneg atau kembung. Kin Fresh Milk juga hadir sebagai pilihan yang lebih sehat bagi para penggemar susu dan aman untuk dikonsumsi anak usia 2 tahun ke atas,” tutup Tiffany.

KIN Fresh Milk comes in a 200 ml bottles. It was shaped like a bottle which made the product appear different from other milk on the market. On all of the bottle (no matter what the flavor is) it is always written "Shake first before consuming", so don't forget to shake the bottle well before drinking so all the nutrients and consistency of the milk become one.

I've been trying the milk for days now and my stomach does feel different. I'm no longer afraid of the side effect that other milks do thanks to the A2 protein.

The flavor of their fresh milk is yummy, I'll share more with you the other flavors on my next post, for this one let's read about my first impression with KIN Fresh Milk.

-*-



On supermarket, they are usually sold in a cooler area, so it does taste better when served cold, but I don't mind drinking it at any temperature. But once opened do consumed it immediately so the product stays fresh. Since (like any other product) it was really fresh, so it was processed using aseptic technology that guarantee freshness and quality as long as it stays closed and sealed, haven't been exposed to open air and in the given date before expiration.

-*-


You can drink it directly from the bottle, or like me using a cup, or adding some ice cubes, or as an additional like when eating cereal, strawberry or even pudding. The texture of the milk is slightly ticker than other milk on the market, which made the milk taste more delicious than the rest, perhaps it is due to the A2 protein. And on the composition is also listed as 100% Fresh Milk, this is surely more assuring.

-*-


Details in the nutrition facts are written clearly on the bottle, from Vitamin A, D, B1, B2, B5, calcium, phosphor, magnesium, iodine, and zinc too. It is also said to make sure that the bottle is always in a cool and dry places, heat is never good for vitamins, same goes with our skincare and other food items. Fresh veggies and fruit will also goes bad faster, dryer too, when put in a hot direct sunlight.

So always keep your KIN Fresh Milk bottles on a cool places like perhaps the fridge.

-*-

The seal on the bottle will help you know that the freshness is sealed within, always remember to check upon purchasing.

I'm not the only one in my family that loves the taste and texture of KIN Fresh Milk, the kids are also drinking it, they always argue who gets the last sips. We enjoy the comfort of protein A2 from KIN Fresh Milk and I'm happy that nobody gets an upset stomach while consuming. It's an enjoyable and nutritious experience and hopefully we can boost the level of drinking high quality milk in our own family.

-*-

Thank you so much KIN Fresh Milk to come into our life, and you for reading my post, see you again on my next post ya about KIN Fresh Milk Chocolate and Coffee, yums!

The lippies covers the lips beautifully and doesn't leave a crack, velvety smooth with matte finish that last. I love how strong the pigment is but still able to create subtle tone when use gently.

The lips will stay effortlessly light like using none.

The lippies are not waterproof nor resist, but they do stays as long as you don't wipe it off with anything, nor touched anything as well.

The lips stays as it is, not drying, but not moisturizing as well.

Cleaning them is easy, use any makeup remover from micellar water to cleansing wipes, they will not stain.

The details of the products are available are available on the backside of the box. It comes in English and mostly Korean, where the brand came from.

The box is neat and the bottles are super cute, Korean cosmetics are known as a very clever brands with irresistible designs. Literally like bottles of ink.

But the consistency if not like regular ink, it was creamy and satisfying, I love how smooth and slippery it felt on the skin, but on the lips it is a bit velvety on the finish.

-*-


When wiped away, the ink does leaves some stain on the skin. This could be an advantage for those who are looking for a product that last. Like when accidentally removed the lip color while eating, the lips won't be so pale, there's still some color left behind.

I've noticed that Beautiful Coral Pink is more deeply pigmented and staining than Dry Rose Brown, on the swatches, the Dry Rose Brown is on the top of the Beautiful Coral Pink. Noticeable from the shade, where the rose is more subtle and the Coral Pink is bright and lively.

-*-

Below is me using Dry Rose Brown. The color is exquisite, delicate and I look sophisticated. Perfect for those who are working and want to appear a bit more serious while still looking so beautiful. It's a shade I can use to go to a parents teacher meeting or something like that.

They are not completely waterproof, but as mentioned above, the stain is gorgeous and made the lips looking 'always in color'.

-*-


And this is Beautiful Coral Pink below. The color brightens the whole complexion and I love how the color made me appear younger.

Both of the color can be mixed, used as gradations, and as a stained lips. Either way, just by using this two, the possibilities are 7 variations from using it alone to together.

Merz Aesthetics Launch Real Matters ID


Hello lovelies,

last week, I went to an event with Merz Aesthetic to witness the launch of Real Matters ID, an application to check the authenticity of Ultherapy machine in Indonesia.

Ultherapy itself is a treatment that gets tons of raves in the past few years and known for it's safety standard and effectiveness. So recently, many 'other companies' start developing a similar machine that for sure, can not deliver, as the real thing. And as time goes by, these machine are created to look as similar as the real thing.

-*-


To answer the concerns of the customers, Merz Aesthetic launch the app where anyone can easily and freely check.

Before we go there, let me remind you a bit about Ultherapy.

-*-



Hanya dengan menggunakan Ulthera® System yang asli, Ultherapy® adalah
prosedur non-bedah yang menggunakan gelombang ultrasound mikro yang
difokuskan (Micro-Focused Ultrasound) untuk merangsang reaksi alami
penyembuhan tubuh dalam proses pengangkatan dan pengencangan kulit
secara non-invasif.
Dengan menggunakan teknologi ultrasound, untuk pertama kalinya, Dokter
dapat melihat dan melakukan terapi terhadap lapisan terdalam kulit – yang
biasa diterapi pada prosedur bedah kosmetik – tanpa harus melakukan
tindakan apapun pada lapisan permukaan kulit.

The Non-invasive Lift

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive procedure FDA-cleared to lift skin on the neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now also FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the décolletage, Ultherapy can help you achieve a fresher look from your brow to your chest!

Focused Ultrasound. No Surgery.

Ultherapy harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used throughout the medical field for more than 50 years—and Ultherapy has been established as effective in clinical studies* and in over a million treatments worldwide.
Ultherapy relies on ultrasound therapy to deliver its collagen-boosting treatment. It also incorporates traditional ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to see the layers of tissue they are treating, ensuring the treatment energy is delivered to where it will be most beneficial.

-*-

- dr. Olivia Ong - Dokter Ahli Estetika Non-Bedah dari Jakarta Aesthetic Clinic (JAC)

-*-



Above is the actual machine of Ultherapy, noticed the designs, shape and stickers too. There's also upgrades in the tip of the handle, nevertheless, whether late or current model, it can be checked using the app.

Does the app beneficial to non customer? Not really, the sole purpose of the app is for the customer to check the authenticity of the machine they are using, so there's a terms and conditions. The benefit of the event in announcing the app is for customer only.

-*-


In the event, we are also shown the effectiveness of the treatment and how the treatment progress over the months in repairing by continuously stimulating the collagen.

And the effect last for years, the client can regularly repeat the treatment on yearly basis not just to keep the condition by keep improving the firmness and stability of the collagen and by product, the skin.

-*-




 Pada alat Ultherapy palsu, energi dikirimkan pada tingkat dan kedalaman yang
tidak konsisten, sehingga membahayakan pasien.
Energi ultrasound yang dikirimkan terlalu tinggi/intens dan terlalu dekat dengan
permukaan kulit dapat menyebabkan luka bakar pada area yang seharusnya
dirawat.
• Energi yang dihantarkan secara tidak presisi – terlalu rendah atau tidak ada sama
sekali – dapat memberikan hasil yang kurang diinginkan atau tidak ada hasil sama
sekali.


Ultherapy ASLI menggunakan real-time
visualisasi ke dalam lapisan kulit. Ketika alat
digerakkan pada wajah pasien, maka
pencitraan ultrasound akan ikut bergerak.
Hati-hati dengan Ultherapy palsu yang
menggunakan gambar tidak bergerak, atau
video yang diputar berulang-ulang.
Ultherapy ASLI dapat juga dibedakan dengan
perbedaan yang mencolok dari ada atau tidak
adanya Segel Keaslian (Amplify II
Software) di sisi kanan bawah dari layar
alatnya.

-*-



And, if the machine is authentic, the app will give you the details as shown above.

Since the treatment is now being raved so much by many Indonesian, it is a reassuring to know we are taken care. The cost of Ultherapy itself is definitely not cheap and a great alternate than going under the knife, hence for me personally, I'll start saving some money to enjoy the treatment for myself in the future.

-*-



Thank you so much Merz Aesthetics for having me in the event, hope to see you all again soon!

JAFRA Long Wear Creme Blush and Liquid Matte Lipstick

Hello lovelies,

How is everyone? I hope things are well and we can all have fun with some makeup.

These babies are from Jafra, they are Long Wear Creme Blush in Mauve shade and Liquid Matte Lipstick in Soft Kiss shade.

The box are all in black and white details, clear and simple message of the products.

I got mine from @emcosmeticindo (Instagram).

-*-


Let's start by reviewing the cream blush.

The product is as it is, a creamy blush that feels comfortable on the skin. The packaging looks like a powder container, usually cream blush comes in a pot. You can simply use a brush, sponge or fingers in using the product.

There's three available shade Peach, Peony, and on this post, Mauve for Rp.158.000.

-*-




As seen in the images, it was pretty pigmented and the color can be bold from the single swipe. Blending it was easy, finger, blush, or sponge, any form will do. And as the form is cream, use it on a wet makeup, before applying any powder. So I'm using liquid foundation, concealer and then this cream with some highlights gel and stick contour.

I'm blending them all (on designated areas) using beauty blender and they'll make my skin appeared like above.

I must say, I can't never go without blush on, it's a must have, must use, must be on the cheeks as it add radiance, tone and live up the mood. I always feels like the blush made me prettier heehee.

Last step is seal everything using a finishing powder. This step helps everything underneath stays put on its place and looking more naturally flawless. The cream blush does last for hours and hours without going away.

The blush is pretty bold in color with demi shine finish. Build-able from the lightest shade to dramatic by layering. Easy to be used, smooth and I have never experience any allergic nor discomfort in using it. I don't smell any distinct scent when using it as well.

-*-


Details from Jafra official website:

JAFRA Beauty The ultra silky sheer shine of Long Wear Crème Blush creates a look that can be subtle or bold. Vitamins A, C & E plus JAFRA's exclusive Ceramide Triple Complex provide antioxidant benefits and weightless, oil-free moisture.

Caprylic, Isononyl isononanoate, Phenyl trimethicone, Ethylhexyl palmitate, Hydrogenated polyisobutene, Bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2, Microcrystalline wax, Bis-stearyl dimethicone, Polyethylene, Beeswax, Dimethicone, Polysilicone-11, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Aluminum starch octenylsuccinate, Lauroyl lysine, Silica, Polysilicone-11, Laureth-12, Methyl methacrylate crosspolymer, Squalane, Kaolin, CI 77891, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 15850, Mica, Glycine soja seed extract, Ceramide 3, Allantoin, PEG-8, Tocopherol, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Ascorbic Acid, Citric Acid

-*-



Next is their Liquid Matte Lipstick, I know I know there's tons of liquid matte nowadays and you must be wondering why should I choose this one, the things is the shade is one of the reason. Their undertone is neutral to fair skin, hence it is suitable for most skin tone without looking dark. Somehow it's brightening.

There's around 6 shades and each cost Rp.199.000, so in terms of price, it is still in the mid range.

The product comes in a tube, like most liquid lipstick, and dries up pretty fast without giving my lips uncomfortable crackings. The formula have a sweet vanilla cupcake kinda aroma, which is not my favorite, but when it's dry, the scent wears off almost instantly, hence I have no complain.

The color is as it is, when you see the clear packaging, it shows what's inside. The other 5 shade are varied from bright red, deep red, slightly orange, and pinks.

They do last quite good on the lips, as long as I don't eat anything oily, it'll stay. That means, cleaning the liquid matte require cleansing oil to easily break the particles and wiped them off with a cotton.

-*-


Details from Jafra official website:

Comfortably wear the matte lip trend with moisturizing matte lip color that won't dry out lips. The ultra-smooth liquid formula allows for easy application and provides full-coverage color in of-the-moment shades

Ethylhexyl palmitate, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Propylene Carbonate, Isododecane, isononyl isononanoate, ci 77891, Diisostearyl Malate, isododecane, Isohexadecane, hydrogenated polycyclopentadiene, Isododecane, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, CI 15850, polymethylsilsesquioxane, Polyethylene, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, kaolin, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499, parfum, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Benzoate, ricinus communis seed oil, Saccharin, CI 19140, helianthus annuus seed oil, rosmarinus officinalis leaf extract

Regarding the moisturizing effect, I think it's not really significant when I'm using it. It's not terribly drying but it's not really moisturizing as well in terms of like using a balm or some sort since the finish product is still in very much matte.

-*-


So there you go, a beauty products from Jafra that are easily and comfortably used, perfect for daily or special occasion plus practical too. The Long Wear Cream Blush can be used for all skin area, like as a eyeshadow, lippies, as well as cheeks. It is a great makeup for a one tone look.

The Liquid Matte is pretty comfortable too and long lasting (as long there's no oil in touch).

Do try these babies, especially the cream blush, I do highly recommend it.

Otsuka Jelly Collagen C Placenta C Hyaluronic Acid C

Hello lovelies,

I can't believe after all these years and so many boxes of jellies I bought every time I visited Japan, I didn't make any review, not even once. I always asked by many people what kind of beauty supplement I consume in daily basis, and it's always these, Otsuka Jelly or perhaps some even know it (now) as Earth Jelly.

-*-




The products come in three variants, each of them is different, the only similarity is that it's in sachet, individually wrapped on a box for a month. There's pink, orange and blue, what are those? Let's see one by one.

-*-






The orange one is placenta jelly, comes in mango flavor. The pink one is collagen, with mangosteen extract (oh wow mangosteen is a real hit in Japan too) with fish collagen, and the blue one is hyaluronic acid that taste like pear or they said it themselves, French taste.

-*-



These are the appearance of the jellies in sachet, so they are so easy to consume, just one per day, that's why they sell them in boxes packaging. 1 box contain 31 jellies. Since they are supplement, taking them in the long run are the one that made the differences. So, if you can't committed yourself in consuming them on daily basis for months and months, I don't think you can get the optimum benefit.

-*-



Let's begin with the pink one, which is collagen, this is the first type I consume since years and years ago, I think it's around 2012. The jellies are sold in beauty shops like Matsumoto and other drug store all over Japan. I think the price is around 2000 Yen gives and take, I think I got mine around 1800 Yen.

-*-



Next is the Placenta Jelly in mango flavor, please by all means, click on any image if you want to read all the details including the ingredients of the jellies. The pink one is fish collagen while the orange yellow one is from pig. So there you go, those who can't eat pig or perhaps pure vegetarian, I can only say, sorry.

-*-




Last but not least, here are the last one of their variant, in blue, like the perfect resemblance to hydration since it is hyaluronic acid, for hydrating the skin in general.

-*-

So if you noticed that all the supplements have C it means that they all contain Vitamin C, the amount might be differ one to another but they all have.

I think the company is very good in making these jellies, they have created trend, a way to eat beauty supplement simpler than any other brand (like Meiji with their collagen powder, or most brand with pills), these jelly is way more fun to consume and perfect for traveling too. I took one per day and just by counting the sachet as per days of traveling and I'm good to go. They don't need special packaging, fit to the slimmest purse and easy to be opened.

-*-





Look how delicious they look, the jellies are irresistible. There's differences in texture too, the berries which is collagen (pink) is the one that more like agar, not as fragile as agar, still in jelly consistency, but slightly like agar, breakable. While the yellow (placenta) and blue one (hyaluronic acid) is a much more former in texture, and I think the hyaluronic acid is the firmest of them all, I can wiggle it as much as I want and it wont break. And yes, I do love to play with my food, that's why I know.

-*-



Regarding the taste,

The blue one is the freshest one with a sweet pear flavor, I don't really relate the feeling like French taste as describe by the brand. More like something that taste good and easy to consume, even my kids are loving it, not that I want to give them but the texture and appearance of the jelly made them really want to try.

And this variant have mild sweetness, while mango (yellow) is the sweetest of them all.

-*-


The orange yellow one, which is mango flavor, has no scent or feeling like eating placenta whatsoever (thank goodness), so I don't feel any weirdness in consuming, like eating a jelly, mango jelly that is.

Like said above this one is the sweetest of them all and don't think of it like a regular jelly that taste super sweet, but comparing between these three, in moderation, the sweetness is still mild.

-*-



And the collagen, the pink one with berries, it have that sweet and sour flavors like eating berries. This one is red, juicy, and kinda like berry jam.

I've been consuming this variant the longest, perhaps they are one of the reason my skin is looking better and healthier. It may not make me appear younger, but delays aging as they are antioxidant too.

There are pros and cons whether the supplement (any supplement) for the skin really can made differences on the skin since the metabolism and absorption are differ one to another and it may not even reach the skin (the nutrition).

However, there are many people in Japan who appear so much younger than they actual age and claim to consume these beauty supplement for years, so I guess, in the end, they do help, when taken correctly, in the right dose over the period of time and with healthy lifestyle.

-*-




Like using skincare on daily basis, the effects are gained afters continually using it on daily basis and when used properly, I personally believe, these beauty supplement are similar. Hence, never stop taking care of yourself using any means possible with the correct attitude and healthy diets, habit and overall happiness. We all know, a happy heart is a key to perfect health.

Thank you for reading my post, see you again soon.

Alovivi Premium Mask

Hello lovelies,

who doesn't love face mask, they become a huge hits everywhere simply because they worked! The essence or serum inside a mask is doubled, tripled to even 10 times more than regular serum and the absorption increases as well. We leave a mask on our face for 15-20 minutes and some mask can be up to 30 minutes too which make the product have ample time to goes beyond what normal skincare do, especially if we massage the skin after the mask is taken off.

Alovivi comes with a Premium Mask (dressed in pink) that promises results within each use.

I'm using the mask on a cleaned skin, after using toner and serum, now this is optional (the serum) you can clean and use toner before the mask or add a serum after toner, as it increases the nourishing and moist value as my skin is pretty dry.

But as it is, the mask works great.

High moisture retention mask.
Proteoglycan with high moisturising power, ceramide for preparing texture, fullerene for conditioning the skin and moisturising, luxurious moisturising with repairing agent EGF.
Lamellar liquid crystal structure beauty essence has the same structure as human skin. The face mask paper stretches smoothly and quickly and penetrates deeply into every corner of the skin.

What is "Lamellar liquid crystal structure"?
Lamellar liquid crystal structure is a liquid crystal structure like Mille-feuille in which moisture and oil are alternately stacked in thin layers. Our skin is composed of several layers of overlapping layers, but the part forming a structure similar to the intercellular lipid of the skin is called "lamellar structure".
Combination of luxurious beauty ingredients specialised for moisturising and skin conditioning.
· Proteoglycan (
a compound consisting of a protein bonded to glycosaminoglycan groups, present especially in connective tissue.)
· Aloe Vera
· Hyaluronic Acid
· Collagen
· Fullerene
· Ceramide
· EGF

The mask is rather big for my face, so those with normal or bigger face feature can rest assure it will fit. The mask is so thick and juicy, I love the fact that it contains ceramide, the ingredient is well known in keeping the skin moist. Lack of ceramide made the skin dry. This mask promote nourishment and hydration since we all know that's what aloe vera and hyaluronic acid do. While Fullerene  is unknown for me (some say it is a controversial ingredient in skincare) and EGF means epidermal growth factor.

So, considering the ingredients, I think it is best to use it once a while and not everyday on daily basis. It's the fullerene alone is the one that concern me, still since the effect is still not really certain, I think it's best to stay safe than sorry, nevertheless I sure they already went through some procedure and calculation on delivering safe product for the market.

After using the mask, the skin become so moist, and the softening effect also very much enjoyed by me, using moisturizer afterwards to seal the moist in also helps in making the condition last longer. I love how dewy my skin has become.
