Hey lovers of Yuan Soaps (阿原肥皂), the Taiwanese natural brand now has a line of skin care products comprising three range of toners, serums, moisturizers, and sheet masks for different skin conditions. Because I like the brand quite a bit, I agreed to sample their products for a quick review. Quick because this review isn’t indepth as I didn’t use the products long enough. So I can’t be telling you how well they perform but I can still tell you something about their texture and scent, their ingredients and how I feel about them.
I received these complimentary facial cleansers from Botáni and I have to say, “I’m loving them!” I had expected them to be fine products because of my prior experience with the brand but both these two cleansers did more than fine. They totally hit the right note with my nose! And anything that scores points with my nose scores points with me because my olfactory neurons totally rule my head!
The Apivita Express Beauty Mask With Sea Lavender came in timely, just when I was feeling a need for a hydration boost. I usually rely on my DIY masks but this time, I was particularly intrigued with the sea lavender. I know lavender but what exactly is sea lavender? Well, just as the name suggests, it’s a marine plant that thrives on the beach with a host of anti-aging benefits for the skin.
These are the second set of products I’m using from Fancl. The first was the new Fancl Anti-Aging Care range and as reviewed, I did like them and so I agreed to trying other products and I was sent these. I was a bit surprised to receive two different mask packs but I realized that they both serve different functions. The Fancl Pore Cleansing Pack is a deep pore cleansing mask while the Fancl Skin Renewal Pack is a newer product that is formulated with Royal Jelly Essence to renew skin.
