(First Impression) Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Light Cream

10th May 2018 marks a historical moment!
It is a very meaningful moment and is something I never thought I would live to see or tell. This is the moment where all races unite for one aim-
"A better future achieved through peace and democracy!"
This is a story I would love to tell to my future kids and my godson :)

Many of us are proud to call ourselves, "Saya anak Malaysia!"

Weather is super hot and as a dry-combination skin type, I am always searching for good moisturizers that will keep me hydrated while running errands! As a Malaysian, who wouldn't know what our national flower, the Hibiscus is?

I have collage snippets of Hibiscus I took from Mr. Google ^^
Do you know that it actually contains a lot of healthy and beauty benefits?
I do not know that and went to MR. Google for help:
(+) Hibiscus tea helps in lowering blood pressure, bad cholesterol, & also body mass index (BMI).
(+) Hibiscus is nicknamed "Botox Plant" as it helps in exfoliating, firming and lifting for the skin.
(+) Hibiscus is a source for AHAs that helps in increasing moisture content in the skin.

Mamonde has incorporated our national flower into its NEW Advanced Moisture Ceramide range!
Today I will be focusing in only one of the product and its the Moisture Light Cream ^^
  
Mamonde always has beautiful packaging. This is the Mamonde Moisture Ceramide Light Cream.

WHY Ceramide? 
I pity our skin barrier coz they are damaging day by day with various external stressors as well as the chemicals that I have been applying throughout my journey of reviewing various skincare and makeup products on my face. The key to improving damaged skin barrier would be the common skin moisturizer and oil. It may not be enough so we will need ceramide that makes up 50% of the lipid  in skin layer that functions to supply ample moisture to the outer layer of the skin and eventually protect us from the various external stressors.

Sounds like a beneficial moisturizer to dry skin type user! ^^

Let's welcome a moisturizer like no other, a moisturizer that contains double the natural moisturizing agent found in Hibiscus to retain moisture inside the skin and its high concentraion of ceramide (it was exclusively developed for 20 years)  helps build a double layered moisture barrier on the skin surface to prevent the skin's moisture loss. Moreover, its soft and tight texture will definitely aid in better absorption upon application, plumping your skin instantly for a healthy glow! ^^

Claimed Benefits of Mamonde Ceramide Range:
(+) Doubled the content of Hibiscus extracts to enhance activation of the skin's moisture factor, thus reinforcing and strengthening skin's moisture barrier.
(+) Double-Moisture Barrier Technology to intensify the protective layer of the skin, thus preventing and limiting the inflow of harmful substances while ensuring that the skin is always moisturized and hydrated.
(+) The Lipid Networking System creates a smooth formula that allows the ceramide to adhere to the skin with its structure similar to the skin.

It easily sinks in and dry down to a fresh finish!

After a week of usage, this are what I think. I love the light texture.
