Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for March 15th, 2011


I received these three samples when I purchased Neogence skin care from Sasa beauty store. Since the samples only lasted for few applications, I thought to combine these very brief reviews into one post. (Click the pictures to enlarge)


 Neogence Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Oil-Control Water Gel  (NT800/50ml)

This is suitable to anyone that preferring lightweight moisturizer for balanced skin. The emulsion has slippery consistency and imparts a little bit cooling sensation on skin. It was easily to absorb and leaving skin moist and non-greasy. No detectable scent, comfortable wearing for sensitive skin and enough for oily to normal skin types. I quite liked this honestly.


Ingredients of Neogence Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Oil-Control Water Gel:

Aqua, Olea Europaea Fruit Oil, Glycosyl Trehalose, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Butylene Glycol, Cetyl PEG/PPG-15/15 Butyl Ether Dimethicone, Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sodium Chloride, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Niacinamide, Hydrolyzed Yeast Extract, Aesculus Hippocastanum Extract, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Panthenol, Propylene Glycol, Zinc Gluconate, Caffeine, Biotin, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Mannitol, Sodium Citrate, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-15, Tremella Fuciformis Sporocarp Extract, Chlorphenesin, Methylisothiazolinone.



Neogence C+ Quick Lifting Whitening Eye Gel (NT800/15ml)

This eye gel has hint of yellowish tone, I was not sure the original colour though. The ingredient list looked fairly impressive with several anti-aging ingredients included but practically I did not like the gel texture. First, the eye gel was feeling slippery and was actually quite messy to apply. Secondly and most importantly, it did not smooth out the fine line instantly, even my hydrating essence or Neogence C+ Whitening Serum did much better in this aspect. This probably suitable to those are looking lightweight eye gel with preventive purpose.


Ingredients of Neogence C+ Quick Lifting Whitening Eye Gel:

Aqua, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid (1.0%), Hyaluronic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Dipeptide-2, Copper Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-5, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Ubiquinone, Sodium Citrate, Citric Acid, Sodium Bicarbonate, Xantham Gum, Disodium Sebacate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, Sclerotium Gum, Fragrance, Methylisothiazolinone, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Disodium EDTA, Methylparaben.



Neogence Whitening UV Protection Makeup Base SPF42 PA++ (NT550/30ml)

This formulated with Titanium Dioxide, Octyl Methoxycinnamate and Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate (DHHB) to against UV rays. In addition, it also included ingredients of whitening, soothing and anti-oxidization. The content was beige-tinted but it has very sheer coverage. The light texture was very spreadable and easily settled on skin, non-greasy yet hydrating. I had tried this twice together with powder foundation in humid weather, it did not control sebum that my face shined after few hours. Nevertheless, I had no irritation with this and in fact I think this was fairly nice to wear and its was not comedogenic too. This should be enough as sunscreen on Good-Skin day and may be, just touch up with loose powder to control oily shine of T-zone.

Nevertheless, I encountered the uneven application as shown on above picture. Most likely because I applied this makeup base before the  Neogence Neogence C+ Quick Lifting Whitening Eye Gel had been fully dried on skin.
