(Review) Radiant Rosy Complexion with the NEW Mamonde All Stay Foundation

Hello loves, it has been awhile since I have been testing this foundation out!
Honestly, I do not really wear foundation unless a formal occasion is calling for it.
I have been loving the Mamonde cushion foundation so far and I hope this NEW Mamonde All Stay Foundation will be my new best friend.

A quick overview on what I think about them for my dry to combination skin with slight sensitivity.
Please note that you really need to have a good skin base to enjoy this product fully!
Packaging: 5/5
Texture: 4/5
Scent: 5/5
Coverage: 3/5
Lasting Power: 4/5

Packaging: I personally love love love the slim, tube packaging. It allows easy dispensing and is definitely travel-friendly.

Texture: It is of a more liquid-y, runny texture than I have imagined.
Scent: I love the rose scent that is not overwhelming at all!
Coverage and Lasting Power: Application is easy. However you need to spread fast as I find that it dries a tad faster so blending will be slightly difficult. It can easily cover up my redness around my nose and acne marks however it does not camouflage/hide my flaws (scars, spots and dark circles) perfectly. Concealer is still needed. However, it'd be perfect for days where I wanna appear with an almost perfect canvas yet still look natural enough. I am glad it did not oxidize like it claimed. However as a dry skin user, it does crease especially on my under eye area. I will advise to really hydrate your skin well before using this foundation if you too have a dry skin like mine! I think it will work better for those with oily skin type.
The without foundation face is really uneven. Redness at nose area and acne are more obvious. Even the yellow pus is ewww! Dark circles are also more serious looking and acne marks are standing tall XD

(First Impression) Some By Mi AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Series

Hello loves, how was your October?

I have received this parcel thanks to the recommendation of blogger friend Aiin. It was a parcel I highly anticipated as I have seen the rave at Youtube, my Instagram feed, stylekorean site and more! I still remember watching the video- it was amazing to see how magical the toner in clearing one's troubled skin in a span of 1 month! I was intrigued but never took the leap. I am super glad to receive it and finally gave it a try after taking dozens of flatlays ^^

About Some By Mi:
Some By Mi believes natural beauty deserves attention. The brand takes its name from the Korean word "mi" which means "beauty", and proudly manufactures all its product in Korea. Some By Mi offers a wide range of skin care and make up essentials. One of the best selling item is the AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner (from YesStyle).


First Impressions
The below impression is based on my 3 days experience so it won't cover too much details. AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle series have this clean green packaging - I like it! Its not the flimsy packaging but of quality, sturdy material. All is well-packed and came in excellent condition. ^^

Korean Beauty Luxury gave us 4 samples. So generous. For more k-beauty products, do check them out below! ^^

The AHA (Removes impurities & dry flakes from skin surface), BHA (Exfoliates pores, removing clogged impurities and sebum), and PHA (Stops losing moisture from skin, dissolving dead skin cells) work as effective exfoliators leaving skin cleaner and more radiant than before.
For: Pore care, Brightening and Moisturizing.
*made of skin friendly ingredients*

AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cleansing Bar   (RM70  /  106g)
Effective exfoliator reveals clean & radiant skin.

The soap is carefully packed in 2 plastic layers. I personally would cut the bar in maybe 4 pieces before I use them so it won't be such a waste. To my surprise, actually its ok to not cut too as they don't dissolve super fast if you store them well!
Notable Ingredients:
All natural - AHA/BHA/PHA/Niacinamide 2%, 20 kinds of natural plant extracts, and real tea tree 10,000 PPM
Used ECOCERT1cerified organic oil (Olive Oil, Argan Oil), natural surfactants and hardener.
Lather and massage whole face gently.
Nicely wrapped soap in green color with the word 'Miracle' printed on top. Conveniently comes with a bubble maker net.
It has a leafy noticeable tea tree scent.
It foams up easily using the bubbling net. It feels thick and soft.
Skin Feels:
A little lathering goes a long way. After rinsing, my face feels clean but not tight or dry! <3 The only thing to complain is that I wish I can secure my bar soap in the net for good as its more convenient in my opinion.

AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Toner   (RM75  /  150ml)
Works as effective daily exfoliator revealing clear, radiant, baby soft skin in just 30 days! Its low pH makes it suitable for sensitive, dry & oily skin.

Well-sealed. Personally loving the texture and sensation of it!
Notable Ingredients:
All natural - AHA/BHA/PHA/Niacinamide 2% and real tea tree 10,000 PPM
After cleansing, take an appropriate amount on a cotton pad, wipe it off along with the texture of the skin, and let it absorb lightly. Use morning and night.
Sturdy transparent green plastic bottle. Toner can be dispensed easily without worrying of spillage.
Strong tea tree scent from bottle and gets milder after some time of application.
Watery clear solution
Skin Feels:
It feels cooling on the skin, thus soothing my skin in this hot Malaysia weather. It absorbs into my skin very quickly. No tackiness after full absorption.

AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Serum   (RM98  /  50ml)
Centella Asiatica Extract of 14.5% and Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) water aids in skin soothing  and skin turnovers for smooth, hydrated skin. AHA, BHA, & PHA helps to remove dead skin cells more effectively, revealing clean & radiant skin.

Must shake before use! The first few uses I did not notice the layer of oil and serum. Once you shaken it you will notice the slight oil layer that dries down to minimal tackiness and your goodness is pretty much sealed! ^^ My skin loves it.

Notable Ingredients:
All natural - AHA/BHA/PHA/Centella 14.5% and real tea tree 10,000 PPM
Apply at the serum/essence routine. Take 3-4 drops and gently massage all over face. Remember to shake bottle enough to mix oil and serum!
Sturdy transparent green dropper bottle for hygienic dispensing of serum.
Strong citrus-y scent that is refreshing and gets milder after some time of application.
Clear runny serum with a hint of green color.
Skin Feels:
The first few times of usage, I did not shake the serum before usage. The serum layer feels so light as if I am applying some orange juice on my face and they quickly sink into my skin. After doing the shaking motion before usage, I realize 2-3 drops is sufficient in giving the moisture while sealing some of the goodness in my skin. After a while, it leaves very minimal tackiness= more like dewy skin. Great for my dryyy skin ^^

AHA BHA PHA 30 Days Miracle Cream   (RM118  RM80  /  50ml)
Skin soothing solution for never-going-away skin troubles. 4 Cica Care (Asiatic Acid, Asiaticoside, Madecasic Acid, Madecasoside) was added to Centella Asiatica, known to cure even tiger's scar, for strengthen weakened skin barrier and improve troubled skin.

Sturdy jar and surprisingly I am enjoying the moisturizer too! ^^

Gently apply and tap to improve absorption.
Notable Ingredients:
All natural - AHA/BHA/PHA/Centella 70% and real tea tree 10,000 PPM
Sturdy transparent green tub.  (It'd be great if there is a spatula included in it!)
 Citrus-y yogut-like scent.
White gel cream that has the slightest hint of green. It spreads like gel and is quickly absorbed into my dryyy skin.
Skin Feels:
Its the lighter creams that I love! I would apply more on days where I feel my skin are drier. Scent is not noticeable after its fully absorbed leaving no tackiness! However I think it gives me a glass skin effect. When worn under make up it gives a healthy glow from the inside, making me look more healthy. Initial wear of cream does give a dewy texture but not the gross oily film texture. *hopefully you get what I am trying to say* XD

*ratings here are not accurate as I will be updating after 1 month usage with before-after comparison pic!*
