I’m From Honey Serum

About the product↙️

🌼It is categorized under the honey range products as the Honey Glow Cream but this is in the form of a thick glossy serum. Both products are perfect duo for day & night care.

🌼This serum contains 30.63% of Honey Glow Queen(Honey Complex) which has unique mixture of 7 active ingredients: honey, black bee propolis, royal jelly, bee venom, turmeric, bee pollen, and cinnamon.

🌼The nutritious serum provides rich moisture to a distressed skin, improves elasticity and prevents fine lines, and gives a brightening effect.

Ingredients Benefits

My thoughts 💭

💜Packaging ➡️ comes in a slim long attractive glass bottle with a pump dispenser

💜Smell ➡️ pleasant mild herby scent

💜Texture ➡️ dense, smooth, glossy in very light brown colour

🍯 The serum consistency is thick & feel like a primer upon application. It spreads easily and absorbed quickly.

🍯It leaves a very luxurious light, smooth, velvet soft feel and add a dazzling glow on my skin.

🍯 No greasiness after the serum is fully absorbed and keeps my skin refresh, revitalize and tighter after use.

🍯 The honey-like gooey texture adheres to my skin perfectly, providing a protective barrier as an anti bacterial. Thus, it does not cause irritation or sensitivity to my already delicate skin.

🍯 It also contains wrinkle care and whitening ingredients that rejuvenate and make my skin looks firmer, brighter and clearer.

🍯 I only need a small dab to cover my whole face as it is very concentrated. I love to use it together with the Honey Glow Cream as my night care routine. I would prefer to use it as a night care due to the humidity and warm weather in Singapore.

🍯 Highly recommended serum for those with lack of moisture and dehydrated skin as this serum has an excellent power to retain moisture.

Klairs Youthful Glow Sugar Mask

This product is purchased at a reduced price for the “Try Now Campaign” in exchange for my honest review. Thank you to #0.8L and #DearKlairs | #Wishtrend for this opportunity.

About the Product↙️
This is a low irritating and nourishing sugar mask enriched with antioxidants from grapefruit and raspberry. Grapefruit extract and kaolin soften your skin texture without irritation while shea butter, raspberry oil, and jojoba with rich nutrition leave your skin moisturized after washing off. It also contains anti-inflammatory calamine to soothe your skin. This multi-purpose low irritating wash-off mask can also work as a physical exfoliator.

Key Ingredients↙️
• Grapefruit Extract: A source of antioxidants like brightening vitamin C with additional anti-inflammatory benefits.
• Sucrose: The fine granules not only serve as a mild exfoliant, but as a humectant too, meaning that the ingredient attracts and retains moisture in the skin.
• Raspberry Seed Oil: High in powerful antioxidants like vitamin E, that protect, nourish and soothe the skin.
• Shea Butter: An intensely hydrating emollient that softens and moisturizes skin.

❌Free Of:

Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic fragrance, Artificial colors, Animal ingredients, Silicones, Alcohol, and Phthalates.

Benefits of Sugar in Skincare↙️

🍭Natural humectant it draws moisture from the environment into your skin. Applying sugar scrub to your skin helps hydrate and keep the moisture in the skin.

🍭Natural glycol acid that penetrates the skin & generates a fresh glowing skin. Great for sun damage and aging skin

🍭An excellent gentle exfoliant. It works well to slough off those dead skin cells & reveal healthy glowing skin.

🍭Sugar scrub can be a secret weapon against ingrown hairs.   Sugar scrub also discourages ingrown hairs and bumps. By using a scrub 1-3 times per week (depending on skin type) on the areas where ingrown hairs appear, you allow the hairs to protrude high above the skin and get a smoother closer shave and this prevents the hairs from curling up under the skin.

Who is it for?

Anyone experiencing dullness, dryness, or an uneven texture including sensitive skin.

My thoughts↙️

✳️Packaging ~ come in a plastic tub for 110g.

✳️Scent ~ Light natural fruity citrus smell.

✳️Colour & Texture ~ Soft light pink sherbet form with fine sugar particles which is not abrasive.

💜I highly recommend this amazing product which gives such a super soft, hydrating and glowing skin just after one wash.

💜A very mild scrub that does not strips due to its low ph balanced.

💜Doesn’t irritate my delicate skin even after leaving it on for a while.

💜Time saving for a quick scrub and mask which calm and soothes my sensitive skin

**Tested on my hubby and he is giving a thumbs 👍🏻 up from a person who does not like to do facial. His skin indeed looked glowing, supple and refreshed just after one wash.

What I like about this product↙️

💙It nourishes and hydrates as it buffs so skin isn’t left looking or feeling irritated, dry, or tight, but glowing, smooth, and bright.

💙Great as a quick scrub, a 10-minute treatment, or as a makeup-removing cleansing balm, all 3 in 1.

💙It gives a radiant complexion and improved skin texture.

How To Use ↙️

*️⃣AS A SCRUB (1-3 TIMES A WEEK):

After cleansing apply onto damp skin and massage in a circular motion. Rinse with warm water.

I’m From Honey 🍯 Glow Cream

*This product is purchased at a reduced price for the “Try Now Campaign” in exchange for my honest review. Thank you to 0.8L and I’m From | Wishtrend for this opportunity to be part of this event.

Product Story ⬇️

This cream contains 30.63% of Honey Glow Queen(Honey Complex) which is our unique mixture of 7 active ingredients: honey, black bee propolis, royal jelly, bee venom, turmeric, bee pollen, and cinnamon.

Claims ⬇️

🍯 provides rich moisture to your distressed skin

🍯 improve elasticity and fine lines

🍯 brightens dull, uneven skin tone

🍯 absorbed deeply into the skin and strengthen the skin barrier while balancing the water-oil ratio of the skin

Most bee products have an impressive quantity of antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other anti-inflammatory compounds. For example, raw honey and royal jelly is known to promote skin regeneration by improve collagen production, and stimulating the skin fibers that give structure to skin.

Some facts on ⬇️

🥞Royal jelly contains vital nutrients for the health of the skin, including flavonoids, nucleic acid, decanoic acid, enzymes, steroidal hormones, along with vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, acetyl-choline and zinc.

Royal jelly is fantastic stuff for getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines, it is one of the few natural substances to contain collagen. It also has good amounts of lecithin, vitamins A, B-complex, C, D, and E, which are key building nutrients for skin elasticity

🥞Propolis is one of the most powerful natural antibiotics on the planet. It is great for inhibiting the overgrowth of infectious and inflammatory pathogens on the skin’s microbiome; a primary cause of skin problems.

🥞Bee pollen contains very rejuvenating nutrients like carotenoids, flavonoids and phytosterols, which promote cellular regeneration. Studies reveal that bee pollen consumption can improve skin tone and appearance. It is also rich in sulfur, a key component for the production of collagen and healthy skin. Furthermore, bee pollen has strong immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory effects, which shortens healing time and support the immune system in regenerating the skin, which is especially helpful for wounds, cuts and scars.

🥞Bee Venom stimulates facial muscles for a natural anti-aging effect by smoothing and firming out fine lines and wrinkles. It takes around 10,000 bee stings to make just 1 gram of bee venom, which makes bee venomalmost seven times more valuable than gold!

Bee venom improves skin collagen levels in several different ways. Clinical trials have found that it increases collagen protein synthesis – the process that creates collagen fibres – by encouraging the growth of new skin cells. It also speeds up the recovery of damaged skin cells, generating even more skin cells.

🧡6 Benefits of Turmeric↙️

1. Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties 

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits, turmeric can work wonders on condition-riddled skin. It can also help reduce redness from blemishes and calm skin conditions like eczema and rosacea. 

2. Fight off acne 

Turmeric is excellent for acne because it is a natural antiseptic and helps to keep bacteria from spreading. It’s especially effective when combined with apple cider vinegar which has astringent properties, meaning it plays the same role as your average toner.

3. Reduces dark circles 

“Since turmeric is a proven anti-inflammatory and lightening agent, it’s perfect for alleviating this kind of concern,” says Courtney Chiusano, founder of Courtney Chiusano Skincare in Los Angeles, California. “It also stimulates circulation, which can help reduce puffiness and under-eye darkness caused by poor circulation.” 

4. Protect against sun damage & aging 

Research presented at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) 68th Annual Meeting shows that a moisturizing cream containing turmeric had the ability to improve the appearance of fine lines and brown spots caused by sun damage. 

It also helps prevent loss of skin elasticity due to long term UV exposure.

5. Reduce appearance of stretch marks 

Turmeric has the antioxidative power to penetrate and improve the function of the skin membrane cells, which will help prevent and treat stretch marks. Experts recommend making your own stretch mark-healing paste with one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, one teaspoon of turmeric and a squeeze of a wedge of a lemon (about one-eighth of the fruit). Rub this mixture onto the affected areas twice a day.

6. Soothe dry skin

Turmeric can deeply hydrate and revitalize skin while alleviating symptoms of dryness. It naturally speeds up the process of removing dead skin cells to reveal healthy and soft skin, and protects the skin cells from further damage.

🧡Benefits of Cinnamon↙️

Apart from spicing up your lattes and imparting fragrance to pulao, cinnamon is a great skincare ingredient. The flavourful spice has been known for its medicinal properties since ages and has been used as an anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing ingredient by incorporate the wonderful cinnamon in your beauty regimen to get flawless skin.

🧡Cinnamon and honey for acne removal
The anti-inflammatory property of cinnamon combined with anti-microbial property of honey makes this combination great for acne removal. Mix 1 tablespoon of cinnamon powder with 2-3 teaspoon of honey to form a paste. Apply this mix on the face covering acne and pimples. Wash it off with lukewarm water after 10 minutes.

My thoughts 💭

Package▶️ Stored in a very luxurious glass bottle to keep the cream fresh for longer.

Scent▶️ Very light natural sweet fragrance and don’t have very heavy honey smell.

Texture▶️ Beige White, thick, silky, buttery like soft cream.

💕I always prefer to use cream texture for the night routine due to the humid and warm weather in Singapore. I can say that the Honey Glow Cream is my perfect night cream, very hydrating, moisturizing and has all the nourishing ingredients to repair my skin while I sleep during the night.

💕Best of all it doesn’t feel sticky or oily after use. Spread easily and melt instantly into my skin though the consistency is thick.

💖I am loving my “golden beauty oil” since the day I started using it on 10 Feb this year. I have been constantly adding it to my daily skincare products and it feels so divine on your skin, not heavy or oily after application with other skincare products. It is light enough to use even during the day.

💖I love mixing this oil together with my water essence or Benton Aloe BHA toner to create a light facial massage oil. It helps my Amethyst Jade Roller glide smoothly onto my skin and without friction. The oil sink in almost immediately without heavy residue. It goes very well with both essence and toner.

💖It gives a luminous sheen on the skin with a healthy glow. Skin feels dewy, supple and refreshed.

💖There is no irritation or sensitivity on my skin after using it with multiple skincare products. It also relieves itchiness and reduces redness instantly on my affected skin.

💖It helps to tame my unruly waves and keeps my hair revitalised, lustrous and manageable from root to tip. Awesome as a leave on hair treatment without greasiness.

💖Nourishes my dry hands perfectly when it is used together with my hand cream. My hands felt smoother, softer with lesser fine lines. It also prevent dryness around my cuticles. Even my husband loves using it around the cracked skin areas on both his hands.  He loves the comforting after feel and it does a great job repairing and healing his cracked skin on his hands naturally.

💖 It deeply hydrates my dry lip and keeps my lip soft and plump.

My Favourite Tips⤵️

💟Apply 1~2 drops of carrot oil in a carrier oil of your choice such as jojoba oil for a facial massage oil blend . For lighter mixture you may use just a mist and the oil for a relaxing face or body massage.

💟Add a few drops to your favourite all purpose skin cream, body lotion and hand cream to soothe wrinkles, dry irritated skin and stretch marks.

💟Used as a hair conditioning by mixing a few drops to your shampoo for nourishing your scalp and to prevent hair loss.

💟 Use often for a deep hydration treatment to dry cuticles.

🥕Provide Deep Hydration without oily residue.

About Snail Secretion Filtrate⬇️

Snail slime (or its cosmetic name, snail filtrate) is packed with nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein, proteoglycans, and antimicrobial and copper peptides, all of which are commonly used in beauty products and proven to be beneficial for the skin.

Benefits of Snail Slime ⬇️

🍀Contains hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein, proteoglycans, and antimicrobial and copper peptides, all of which fight against premature aging. These nutrients help protect a snail’s skin from damage, infection, dryness, and UV rays; and they do the same for human skin, too.

🍀Contains fibrinolytic enzymes that promote the oxygenation of skin cells, which helps to repair damaged tissues. These enzymes also enhance nutrition. What’s more, snail filtrate contains glycolic acid, a natural exfoliant which helps remove dead skin cells and encourages cell renewal. This fades scars as well as fine lines and wrinkles.

🍀Kills acne-causing bacteria that live on your skin’s surface. The result is clearer skin with consistent use.

🍀An amazing exfoliant which removes dead skin cells and stimulates cell renewal. This evens out your complexion and diminishes the appearance of fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles. Its exfoliating properties are attributed to the natural collagen, elastin, and glycolic acid found in it.

🍀Contains allantoin, a natural substance which promotes cell renewal and the reconstruction of damaged tissues.

🍀Provides your skin with potent quantities of vitamins A and E, as well as copper peptides, zinc, iron, and manganese.

My thoughts/experiences⬇️

This sheet mask is scented with a strong alcohol smell which is not to my liking. However, the mask is soaked with thick watery transparent essence which drips a little and very moisturizing. It stopped dripping when I put it on my face. It did not sting or irritate after leaving it for about 15-20mins. I did a test by applying some Benton Let’s Carrot Multi Oil on my face before overlay the sheet mask for a deeper hydration. My so called “beauty oil” creates a protective barrier, separating the alcohol from further penetrating to my face from the sheet mask. Hence, I don’t experience any irritation or redness on my face which normally I do if in contact with heavy alcohol ingredients used on its own.

After peeling it off, I smoothed most of the excess of the essence onto my face from the sheet mask pack to let it fully absorbed and followed by my favorite Benton Aloe & Propolis Soothing Gel. The last routine is to massage my face with my Amethyst Facial Roller, my most loved tool to ease all the facial tensions and eventually drove away my tiredness. I truly felt so good after this final step. However, I won’t be purchasing it coz of the strong alcohol and fragrance dispersed by the sheet mask. If you are not sensitive to scent and alcohol you may give this snail filtration mask a try 🤠🤠
