(Review) ALL Skin Care Babies from The Butterfly Project 4th Birthday Bash

Hello lovelies,
the first part of the review goes into skin care.

To me, taking care of your skin is the most important step.
I would go for complete routine if possible but when laziness strike,
there is at least four steps I must follow.

 My simple routine of:
PreCleanse-Cleanse-Tone-Moisturize
or
PreCleanse-Cleanse-Serum-Sleeping mask

I try to remember using eye cream and sunscreen.

What is your routine like?
Comment below and share with me ok? :)

I love make up too but I don't wear make up all the time and it is a hassle when I do not have enough time or during off days. SO, it is best to have good skin!

Any one who are blessed with good skin will be as confident as they are with or without make up.
Hope I will be one, one day. ^^

Before I proceed with my personal review, I would like you to know my current skin type.
I have dry to combination skin.
May be sensitive some what, some times.
Acne currently focusing around my T-zone.
I also have severe dark eye circles and fine lines.
Uneven skin tone.

Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist in Narcissus   (RM49)

I was interested to know what Narcissus means so I googled.
Apparently it is daffodil which symbolizes happiness, rebirth & new beginnings

Narcissus is extracted in an eco-friendly manner. They ensure the purest form is extracted with the least damage. A Narcissus molecule is so small that it is able to penetrate deeply & is easily absorbed into dehydrated skin cells. In addition, hormone Dormin (extracted from bulbous root) helps in optimizing moisture capacity in dehydrated skin cells.


Brand: Mamonde
Item: Hydro Mist
Content: 120ml
Origin: Korea
Skin Types: Dry (or when your skin heats up)
Rating: 4/5

Ingredients:
Water, Glycerin, Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract, Narcissus Jonquilla Extract, Disodium EDTA, Menthoxypropanediol, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance

Directions:
Apply on bare skin or over make up as desired. For best results, hold bottle at arm's length and lightly mist over face. The mist can be used anytime throughout the day to refresh and re-hydrate skin.

"Tried this on 20/05/2017 night and more on days I remember to use.
Still using it today and am loving it at times when I feel hot and dry-ish."

Pros:
Super fine mist.
Cooling on skin.
Mild floral scent.
No allergic reaction.
No sticky or oily feeling.
Face feels plump/moisturized.
Can be used before or after you make up. Great moisturizing agent.
Acts as a coolant (Great for those in air-conditioned room, after workout or under the sun).

Cons:
All good but if it comes in a smaller bottle then it'll be great especially on travel or hike!

Overall:
The mist is super fine and I was wow!! It's different compared to Evian and Avene thermal spring water! It falls on the skin very lightly. The light floral smell makes me feel relaxed. Glad the smell is not overpowering. Upon tapping for absorption my fingers are somewhat sticky. But with my non-sticky fingers I touched my face and it is NOT sticky. Near to no oily feeling but sis was saying it's oily for her skin after a whole day of work. It does a great job in keeping my skin moisturized and cooling.

Neesya Cleansing Set   (RM39)
Revives Dull Skin

Brand: Neesya
Item: Cleansing Set
Content: 100ml x2
Origin: Malaysia.
Skin Types: All
Rating: 3/5

"Tried both on 23/05/2017 noon. 
Continued using cleanser religiously till 5th June 2017 (both on 5th June). Exactly 14 days of usage before review."


Direction:

Step 1: Enzymatic Refiner Scrub (100ml)
Use 1-2 times a week for optimum brightening effect (I used once a week)
Smooth an even layer onto cleansed, dry skin. Apply a thick layer over stubborn dark spots. Massage lightly in circular motion for about 30 seconds and leave on for another 3 minutes. Before rinsing off, wet your fingers and gently massage to softer. Rinse thoroughly.
*Enhances the appearance of skin clarity, evens skin tone, & promotes radiance
*Papain enzyme gently yet effectively lifts away lifeless skin cell to reveal brighter, smoother complexion and encourages cell renewal
*Silver Vine Extract & Alpha-Melight ® complements the exfoliation process with skin brightening effects
*Pro-Vitamin B & aloe extract restore hydration for the glowing skin


Step 2: Gel Cleanser (100ml)

Use daily, day & night
Squeeze a peanut sized amount of gel cleanser and mix it with a little water. Lightly massage onto damp face and neck while avoiding the eyes. Rinse thoroughly. Dry with towel and follow up with your toner, essence, and moisturiser.
*Silver Vine Extract & Alpha-Melight ® helps in skin brightening and whitening
*Hamamelis, Aloe & Vitamin B5 hydrate and soften skin


Pros:
Skin is smooth and soft.
Both does brightened my face.

Cons:
The only thing I dislike is the smell that lingers.

Overall (Step 1 & 2):
The Enzymatic Refiner Scrub, I think it does make my skin more even slightly and brighter. It is somewhat drying especially around my acne area (today was my nose tip with an angry pimple).
Gel Cleanser does not feel drying as it is gel type and does not really bubble up. However, a moisturizer is definitely needed for my dry and combination face after the cleansing step. Nonetheless, my face is obviously soft and slightly brightened! Not sure about my fine lines tho coz it say it contains AcquacellTM that helps in reducing fine lines. The only con for me is the smell of the cleanser. It smells like peeled garlic or what that lingers on my hands for quite some time.

Left is my pre-cleansed face.
Right is still with make up.

Pros:
Cleanse effectively with enough amount.
Nice citrusy orange-y scent (Similar to Skineye Blackhead pore serum)
No allergic reaction.

Cons:
If over-soaked cotton pad, then it kinda stings the eye I don't know why.


Overall:
Smells orange-y. Since it has 5-in-1 function, I like how it cleanses effectively with my make up without drying my face. Face that day of primer, foundation, setting powder, mascara, and eyeliner. Only 3 cotton pad to remove my dirt and makeup. However one cotton pad I over-poured thus it does stings my eyes upon removal of mascara.

This was taken on 27th May 2017 - night.
My forehead may have tiny bumps but no angry/erupting ones.

Thoughts:
It is a cooling and refreshing gel matte look. The unique formula transforms in water droplets when applied on skin. It has citrusy-lemony scent and is quickly absorbed into the skin. My face feels hydrated. I really really wanna say I love it but, I am currently breaking out more on my forehead.
2 weeks later, you can see one angry pimple. There!!
I am treating my acne with Mamonde products.
Will share in a separate post.

Different people have different effect.
I breakout doesn't mean you will too.
My friend love it and does not breakout from using it.

Sorry for appearing in my most natural look - the "after shower and then mask-ing face". Lol.
Top row- Before mask-ing.
Bottom row- After mask-ing.
I don't know why the color difference but it was taken in the same room and same lighting.
Although I may look more "tanned" after but in real life, my skin looks much brighter (not dull anymore!) And hydrated! Still soft too even after I cleansed it with water. ^^

Thoughts:
Soft waffled sheet is made of cotton.
I rarely have mask sheet of this material and it is nice.
Sheet isn't easily tear.
Its smell is very familiar but I cannot explain to you coz I cannot think of the right word yet.
However, it doesn't really bother me and does not linger.
There are plenty of serum still left in packet.
Fitting is okay but not that great especially around my lips.


Upon removal, I don't know if its me not being patient enough, but I tapped for soo long. Still, the greasiness ain't sinking in. So I went and wash it off. Still, my face is smooth and radiant! ^^

Is it suppose to be like that?
Do comment below & thanks for reading till the end.
