- Cleanser: The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser, Mark That's Deep Puriying Cleanser (my skin has improved a lot using this, unfortunately I almost finish this one up and I should try finding other alternatives since it's very hard to get here)
- Toner: ROC Purif AC toner (it leaves my skin feeling sticky)
- Moisturizer: ROC Purif AC Soothing Reparator (I find it a lil bit too greasy to use with the bb creams although it is a GOOD moisturizer)
Thanks to Modzy for suggesting this brand for me! It's definitely worth to try out. For my Indonesian friends and readers, if you're still searching for a fairly cheap alternative skincare line, you should consider trying this. It's clearly not as cheap as products like Clean and Clear, Pond's, or Viva cosmetics that you can find in any supermarket but it definitely has something more to offer.
This skincare line was actually formulated by Indonesian dermatologists, so at least we know it's safe to use and it should be suitable for women living in the humid Indonesia. Yay!
Now, I can only give you very brief reviews since I only have tried them once, but I will sure update my opinion on them maybe after 3 weeks from now. Here you go...
Rp 34.000/ 100 ml
It comes off gel-like in texture (which I love) and it doesn't lather a lot. I like it that way because otherwise, I'd feel like it's too soapy. I don't like soapy cleansers as they tend to make my skin feel tight after washing (cough*POND'S*cough!). This DOESN'T leave my face feeling tight at all. And it cleanses well too, I'm amazed! :D
Additional goodnesses: It contains vitamin E and it's pH balanced.
Rp 30.300/ 125 ml
The packaging is such a turn off, but the product is OK. First of all, it doesn't sting! I'm happy because usually, cheap toners sting so bad. It leaves no sticky feeling too, so I'm amazed. However, I'm not too keen on the smell: it's a bit too perfume-y for me. It's stated at the back of the packaging that this toner will freshen your skin and control oil, but what surprised me most is that it contains seaweed extract. Yum!
Boo~ it's tiny for the price! And they should come up with something better regarding the packaging because as you could see, I should dip my finger in the container to get the product. Yuck. But other than that, this moisturizer is good! It's light and it won't leave your skin looking shiny or greasy. It also gets absorbed into my skin faster than my ROC soothing reparator (my current moisturizer) which is great, because I'm all about saving time to do my daily makeup routine. Hehe. And the best part is I found my skin felt supple after using this moisturizer. It's just great! I'd definitely use this daily before applying my bb cream. I will now use my ROC moisturizer at night.
That's it ladies! Oh and if you're wondering where to get this product, I believe you could easily find it in drugstores such as Century, Guardian, or Watson. I got mine at the Guardian drugstore.
Thanks for reading!
