Manyo Factory Galactomy Clearskin Toner – AHA/BHA Exfoliation Toner Yep…another toner 😅 Galactomy clearskin toner with galactomyces extract gently cleanses and moisturizes the skin, prevents skin dryness, fights inflammation and blackheads, tightens pores, improves skin tone, making it bright and fresh. I quite like this toner because I have dry skin but still get occasional breakouts and this has helped control those without drying out my skin which happens with a lot of products I have tried. Manyo Factory has a lot of great skincare products and is available through Amazon Prime. Their prices are very affordable – this runs under $19 and often is on sale for less and has a coupon. Would recommend for anyone that has combo to oily skin. A little more in-depth info if you are interested…AHA acids renew the skin and treat gently even the sensitive, dry and aged skin, moisturizing, toning and improving its condition. BHA acids are recommended for oily skin prone to acne and comedones. In addition, BHA acids have a keratolytic and antiseptic effect on the skin, prevent bacteria growth and have an anti-inflammatory effect. Galactomyces contains large amounts of vitamins A, B and P as well as calcium, iron, zinc, iodine, folic acid. Galactomyces intensively moisturizes skin, increases its immunity and protects skin cells from exposure to UV rays accelerates the synthesis of collagen and glycoproteins, thereby improving the protective mechanisms of the skin. The skin becomes elastic and tight.

Gilla8 Dual Super Power Radiance Cream PRODUCT INFO: A brightening cream that helps correct pigmentation boost luminosity to reveal beautifully radiant, even toned skin. A highly-potent, fast-absorbing pink colored cream infused with Niacinamide, Arbutin and 5% of Alpha bisabolol to fight the look of dark spots, and wrinkles, while instantly boost luminosity, and visibly firm skin, revealing a luminous, smoother-looking complexion. In blue part, Adenosine and Hyaluronic-acid delivers intense hydration and promotes moisture retention, increasing elasticity for visibly improved lift and tone, while tiger grass calms and reduces redness. This powerful yet mild cream is ideal for all skin types, especially aging skin showing signs of dark spots, sensitivity and dullness. It is dermatologist tested and all ingredients are EWG green grade (safe for pregnant women). MY THOUGHTS: Unfortunately, I could never get the blue side to pump out. Only the pink product came out. I wish each section had a separate pump, so I could control the ratio of tone up cream and moisturizer for myself. It’s a great concept but needs some rethinking on the mechanics.
Camiane The Perfect Wedding Mask PRODUCT INFO: Keratin to lifting moisturizing all-in-one care Whitening wrinkle dual functionality Made in KOREA. Removes unwanted dead skin cells and impurities of the skin! Instantly clear and bright skin after removal. The transparent film-type peeling pack dries and tightens the skin. The increased pore + Wrinkle Lifting Care drooping at the same time! 100% natural microfiber with excellent adhesion and skin friendly. A sheet mask containing a triple low molecular weight and a polymer having different sizes of triple hyaluronic acid. MY THOUGHTS: Absolutely gorgeous packaging! I love how the peel off serum is in a little jewel packet. I did find it apply to use but a little tedious to remove where I applied too thin. It exfoliates and preps the skin for makeup application and is perfect to use before any special occasion or party, but I wouldn’t probably use it for regular use just because of cost. I found it on Amazon for $68.99 which is a really high price in my opinion for a mask, but it comes in a 5 pack and it is considered to be more of a high-end luxury skin care item. I probably won’t repurchase due to price.
Elizavecca Moisture Hyaluronic Acid Memory Cream The product contains 50% of hyaluronic acid, which secures moisture in the skin. Improves skin’s elasticity. MY THOUGHTS: This is such a cool cream. You remove what you need and the remaining cream in the jar returns to its original shape as if you never dipped in. It has a jelly like texture. When used, it forms a protective layer on my skin keeping it soft and moisturized. It is not tacky feeling. It has a light floral scent. Probably my favorite product I have tried from Elizavecca. I loved the way it gave me a healthy glow and eliminated my dryness.

Jungle Botanics - The Ecru Clay Soap PRODUCT INFO: The Jungle Botanics, The Ecru Clay Soap is a handcrafted bold yet delicate soap that is formulated with Amazonian clay. With its rich ingredients and creamy lather helps to remove residues, impurities, clarify pores and control sebum secretion. Also included is a multi-use linen pad to use as a soap holder or as a cleansing pad. As it absorbs excess oil, it controls sebum secretion and clarify pores. Also, with its frothy, rich foam it dissolves unwanted oil and helps minimize the look of pores. Formulated with 17.5% Kaolin clay, The Ecru Clay Soap contains 10 times the amount of clay than conventional soaps. Also made with Jojoba Oil (helps control sebum production, moisturizes, antibacterial and antioxidant), Olive Oil (rich in vitamins, moisturizes and fights bacteria), Grape Seed Oil (Moisturizer and Antioxidant) and Centella Asiatica Extract (anti-inflammatory). MY THOUGHTS: This is a good-sized bar that comes with a linen pouch that can be used to store the soap. I hang mine in my shower and use there after using an oil cleanser. I found that it is too drying if used alone as a cleanser. It produces a rich lather. Would I buy again? Probably not – only because I’m not a fan of bar soaps. And it is $24 which seems like a high price for a cleansing bar.
