The company has kindly send me 3 products and 2 samples which are: Soothe and splash, 2 samples of drench me, off with those heads and glow and shine. I'm seriously loving the packaging of the products. It looks simple but nice. It's English so everybody is able to read it too. The descriptions as well as ingredients are stated at the back of each packaging. How clear do you want it to be?
REVIEW - SOOTHE AND SPLASH
Soothe and Splash is an anti-sensitive & anti-dryness moisturizer which should be perfect for my dry skin. It claims to calm the skin and melt away those unsightly signs of sensitivity. It contains soothing and hydrating ingredients and it repairs the skin barrier, strengthens skin cells and seals-in much-needed moisture. In this bottle there is 45ml of product in it, which isn't a lot. It's sold for $39 at their shop (link to product), quite expensive huh? Thankfully you only need 2-3 pea sized drops per usage, so a little goes a long way!
I'm loving the packaging of this product, it's made of plastic and it has a pump which makes it easy for me to get the product out. I've been trying this product out for 3 weeks and I'm totally in love with the texture! This product feels moist on the skin, it's lightweight and great after you've just cleansed your face. It also has a lovely cooling effect which calms the skin! It blends easily, it does smell a bit chemical but it isn't too overwhelming (but i do always prefer scentless products). After application, it felt slightly sticky but this feeling went away after a few seconds. Overall it's a nice product which calms and hydrates the skin. However, it didn't do much on my flakey spots so don't expect that it will go away after using this product.
HOW TO USE
Use Soothe & Splash 2 – 3 times daily to calm and replenish the skin.
1. Pump 2-3 pea-sized drops of Soothe & Splash onto your palm.
2. Gently apply onto your cleansed face and neck using circular motions until fully absorbed.
This product is white, after spreading, it becomes translucent.
INGREDIENTS SOOTHE AND SPLASH
REVIEW - DRENCH ME
I received two samples of their moisturizing cleanser - drench me. According to their description it's suitable for all skintypes. It claims to remove impurities from your face while keeping your skin moist. It contains seaweed, aloe vera and green tea extracts which will keep your skin hydrated. The full size product contains 130ml and it's sold for $25 on their website (link to product).
Drench me is a liquid, weightless gel cleanser. It smells like flowers - it has the same scent as the glow and shine mask. This scent is a bit overwhelming, so i don't think that everybody would like it. I tried this cleanser out for 1 week and i'm quite satisfied with it. My skin felt smooth and soft after I washed my face with it. It didn't dry my skin out at all and it didn't feel tight as well! However, it won't thoroughly remove make up, especially not waterproof make up, so you should use a different product for that ^_-.
HOW TO USE
1. Use Drench Me daily, morning and night.
2. Pump 1 to 2 pea-sized drops onto your wet palm and lather with water.
3. Apply over your face and neck in up and outwards circular motions.
4. Rinse well with lots of water.
It's a translucent face wash.

REVIEW - OFF WITH THOSE HEADS
This is a bleakhead sebum gel which is suitable for oily skin types who has stubborn black- and whiteheads. No need to squeeze it out anymore! This light cooling serum promises to easily remove those in just 14 days of daily application. It keeps excessive oil secretion under control while preventing future irritation and breakouts. This product contains 15ml of product and is sold for $39 (link to product). Wow, so expensive, but let me tell you if it's worth it or not....
Also this product has a pump which is very easy to use. This sebum gel has a chemical scent to it, just like soothe and splash. When I applied this on my t-zone area it felt very cooling which i like. It also felt moist when I rinsed the product off. I tried this product out for longer than 14 days and I can say that it did remove some of my whiteheads, but not my blackheads. Such a pity that it didn't remove much. I'm quite disappointed though since I had read great reviews about this serum. Too bad that it didn't work on me.
HOW TO USE
1. Use Off With Those Heads daily, morning and night.
2. Pump 2-3 pea-sized drops of Off With Those Heads onto your palm.
3. Apply on T-zone areas, or areas with blackheads and whiteheads.
It has a gel-type consistency.
INGREDIENTS OFF WITH THOSE HEADS
REVIEW - GLOW AND SHINE MASK
Glow and Shine deeply cleanses, polishes and moisturizes your skin. It also lightens and brightens the dull and uneven skin tone and brings out the inner glow and shine - that is what they claim. There is 50ml of product in it and it is sold for $29 on their website (link to product).
The glow and shine mask comes in a small squeeze tube which is great. The mask has a floral scent which is a bit overwhelming, so not everybody would like it. The mask is easy to blend and it had a bit of a cooling effect while I had this mask on. My face felt super soft, smooth and fresh after rinsing. A little bit of brightening effect was visible. However, after using this product for 2 weeks I still can't see any whitening and lightening effect. It claims to fade scars but i couldn't see any difference on my dark spots. On their website they say that it should be suitable for all skin types, but I wouldn't recommend this to people with sensitive skin, some might think that the micro beads are a bit too harsh.
It's a white mask with small micro beats for exfoliation. It has a creamy formula.
INGREDIENTS GLOW AND SHINE
