I got this sample while on lunch from work and it came with a really nice green/orange bag. Re exfoliate rules, I am one person sitting on the fence. Some say you need to exfoliate often especially when you are not young as yesterday and your metabolism slows. Other theory also include you do not need to exfoliate as they are ruining the normal cycle of your skin regeneration....blablabla. I give up when I got this!
When I open this Kate Somerville one......I found it is GREEN haha. It is a bit of surprise but it is quite effective in a way. The bead forms are tiny and it works! My skin is smooth after wash and there was no sign of reddness. While on the GREEN side I was trying to figure out why it is green but it seems it only say it contains enzymes of papaya and pineapple........so I really had no idea. I would certainly get a real size one. On the brand, I had heard about it via online bloggers community and it only recently on board in Hong Kong. Some very good marketing hey!
I am always dehydrated. You know the feeling of reddness and open pores, most people would say your skin is such and such and such. Therefore, I am such a fan for masks..........not paper masks tho! I always luved Eve Lom.......I was lemming over their sunscreen at some point. Anywho I was given this sample while I was buying lipsticks at Joyce Beauty. With winter in town, it is a must try right! So I had used this three times over 1.5 weeks and it really helps to cool down the reddness and close up my pore. I used it along with rose water to enhance the moisturising effect deep into my skin! The best thing for lazy gal, use it after toner and you can go to bed till next morning....no fuss no hassle no stickiness! YAY! The bonus is makeup glides on much better the next day! WHAM!
