ANYOHASEYO! Oh wait, it should be KONICHIWA instead! Or maybe both since konjac is a potato cultivated as food in Japan and Korea. I first learned that the Japanese have been using the konjac vegetable as a beauty treatment for their delicate skin because it is an alkaline and is loaded with goodness. But funnily, when I was introduced to the konjac sponges, it was the Korea ones that were recommended to me. Anyhow, it doesn’t matter because I’ve got both covered here – konjac sponges from Korea and Japan!
Marie Veronique Organics recently launched Cleanser. According to the company, this is a gentle but effective cleanser that removes dirt, oil, sunscreen and makeup without harsh or irritating sudsing agents and naturally soothes and softens the skin with green tea, aloe vera, and jojoba oil. I received a complimentary bottle for review and was eager to try it because of what it promises. But does it leave up to its claims?
I was recently introduced to Luzern, a range of cosmecutical grade products said to use Bio-Swiss certified organic botanicals and medical-grade nutrients. Luzern contains an average of 80% advance cosmeceutical actives, eight times more than regular brands. So for those who want natural and organic products that have proven efficacy, this range might get your attention.
Early last month, I was sent a couple of products from Morcare in UK. This is a line of cosmetics that are formulated with naturally derived ingredients, and made with a strong focus on social responsibility where special care is given to the origin, the cultivation, the method of collection of the raw materials for the further processing. All Morcare products are made to be free of chemical preservatives, PEG, mineral oil, synthetic additives, GMO, and fragrance. In addition, they are not tested on animals and the formulations are said to be non-comedogenic.
