Naruko Narcissus Foaming Wash 1

 .

I hope you didn’t get bored with my Naruko reviews because I have more Naruko reviews to come, or may be, I will get uninspired and bored to write Naruko review first (“ b). In fact, my room was stuffed with Naruko products when I decided to cut down my budget on skin care this year due to my other financial plans. As a skin care veteran, neither I will comprise the skin care quality.

 .

Naruko Narcissus Foaming Wash 6

 .

This is the Narcissus New formula ( Normal – Dry Skin types ) in 2012. Besides this Totol Defense AA foaming Wash marketed as gentle cleanser, Narcissus DNA Repair Foaming Wash is another cream cleanser from the Narcissus series, which claimed strengthening skin self-defense against environment stress and revitalize skin energy. Just my left brain had reacted better against fancy marketing words, all I want for cleanser is gentleness, hence I get this basic formula.

Naruko Narcissus Foaming Wash 3

 .

The white mousy content is very alike with other Naruko cream cleansers despite the different fragrances, all suitable for normal – dry skin.

 .

Naruko Narcissus Foaming Wash 4

 .

Naruko claimed this new formula will foam up better than previous formula, so I was expecting bubbly wash actually. The fact is, non-well-foaming is the nature of amino acid surfactants (eg Sodium Lauroyl Glutamate & Sodium Lauroyl Oat Amino Acids). Every time I have to use more amount (1.5-3cm) in order to generate “sufficient” foam for acquiring sensation pleasure. Even though with such generous amount, the foaming process was still under my initial expectation. To be frank, this deters me from re-purchasing though I like the gentleness. Unless I will be diligent using foaming sponge/net, then it will be easier to lather.

Cleansing Test

(Shimmering lipstick and pencil eyeliner)

Naruko Narcissus Foaming Wash 5

 .

It irritates if the foam contacted with eyes accidentally but overall it has very mild citrus scent, mild foaming and mild cleansing power. Probably too gentle to certain people. I liked this cleanser didn’t make my skin feeling dry after using cleansing oil. If you are looking for a foam wash that can cleanse stronger, I hope my simple test here will save your money. If you are expecting very mild cleanse for all skin types, I think this is fine.

 . 

Although it seemed to be “useless” in cleansing, I would still consider to re-purchase Naruko Rose cleanser for dry skin if can’t find better option, especially for morning facial wash. From my rating, clearly my first preference will be Rose scent, follow by Narcissus then Magnolia last. Did they improve my skin? My answer is prevention is better than cure. This Naruko Narcissus Total Defense AA Foaming Wash is selling at RM29/120ml online – Naruko Malaysia.

NRK Perfecting Elixir 1

.

NRK (NARUKO) is another sub-brand of Naruko, meaning essential, basic, multi-functional and simplificative skin care. NRK Rosehip Perfecting Elixir contains 99.95% of natural extracted Rosehip oil, rich in essential fatty acids and Vitamin C to treat skin dryness, photo-aging, scarring and cracked cuticle.

 .

NRK Perfecting Elixir 2

 ..

Though I adore the benefits of Rose hip oil, the “fishy” scent is the fatal flaw to me. The ambivalence solved if the oil can blend with nice scented essential oil, diluting the unpleasant odour while embracing the full goodies of rosehip oil.  Does it sound perfect and ideal?

.

NRK Perfecting Elixir 3

. .

That was what I assumed when I purchased this NRK Rosehip Perfecting Elixir. Not only my early-mature skin was yelling for nourishing remedy, I had a pimple and it left an unsightly scar on my face. Instantaneously I recalled a wonderful experience of how rosehip oil healed a scar and soothed skin dryness. (read Renew Rosehip oil review here)

.

NRK Perfecting Elixir 5

.

The fact is the signature golden oil still has slight “fishy” odour after opened for few days but less intense compared to Renew 100% Rosehip oil. Anyhow this is good enough for me that I can use the oil more willingly. It worked wonderful to relieve dryness but it did not get fair chance to lighten the acne scar completely due to an incident, resulting the acne scar still slightly visible after using the oil for nearly 2 weeks. Nevertheless, I would say the scar pigmentation improved better than Whoo whitening cream but not effective as Renew Rose hip oil.

.

NRK Perfecting Elixir 4

 .

The incident… well, I made the same mistake twice and I think I had learned enough from the lesson.  I packed this oil in my cosmetics bag, boarded the flight with half bottle full, then landed with an “empty” bottle. This similarly happened to my Renew Rosehip oil as well in the past. Such a painful to see the amazing oil disappeared in the bottle almost completely. Yes, the air pressure caused the oil leaking… cannot help myself to rant the poor packaging. I would never brought this type of packaging for trip again…totally wasteful….

I normally packed only the cannot-leave-without cosmetics for light travel so you know how much a face oil meant to me. Rosehip oil is a fantastic oil and it should be deserving an “Excellent” rating. However, I did not because… for Renew Rosehip Oil, I downgraded the rating due to its odour; for this NRK Rosehip Oil, the rating degraded due to its effectiveness. It costs RM26.10/10ml via online purchase, good small amount to be used up within 3 months after opened, smell slightly better than pure one, can be used on day and night… but I will go for other oil because of packaging issue.

Naruko Magnolia BF Cream Wash 1

.

I have dehydrated skin. Finally I have liberty not to sleep in air-conditioned room, because I have dehydrated skin. Probably I was now living in more humid Malaysia, perhaps sleeping in non-air conditioned room helped to minimize dehydration, I found my skin became less problematic nowadays. Less skin sensitivity, and less drying thus skin hardly has uncomfortably tightness and stingy sensation anymore.

.

Naruko Magnolia BF Cream Wash 2

.

Apart from environment factors, cleansing is one of my very important steps in skin care. I like concept of amino acid surfactant so I intended to try more cleanser from Naruko. Since I purchased Naruko product online, I didn’t get chance to examine the ingredient list before purchase, I simply trusted the marketing words and assumed the same for all their cleansers.

.

Naruko Magnolia BF Cream Wash 3

.

This seemed like a good foaming cleanser because it has additional soap-based surfactants also. Somehow I was disappointed of it foaming power later. Of course it foamed slightly better than amino acid surfactant, caused squeaky clean feeling when using more amount (roughly 1.5 – 2cm) that led to drier skin, but rather mild feeling when I used less amount (< 1cm) that I felt the skin wasn’t cleanse thoroughly.

Naruko Magnolia BF Cream Wash 4

.

May be this is a little more creamy, apparently the mousy fluffy texture has no much difference with other Naruko facial cream cleansers. It has mild floral fragrance of Naruko Magnolia collection. However, I apologize for no Cleansing Test for this review. The cleanser deteriorated and had been tossed before I can take a cleansing test and show you some pictures here.

.

Naruko Magnolia BF Cream Wash 5

.

I wanted to perform the Cleansing Test when it still has 10% left in tube. Guess the cleanser didn’t close tightly? The fragrance changed weirdly when I left the cleanser unattended in bath room for 2 weeks. Nevertheless, you can still refer to other Naruko cream cleanser (Rose or Narcissus) reviews for some general idea. I believe this has similar mild cleansing power too.

.

Naruko Magnolia BF Cream Wash 6

.

Overall this is not my favorite so I’m unlikely to buy another tube. It has same pricing with Hydrating Rose and Age-Defense Narcissus cleansers hence I thought RM29/120ml has more value for Firming & Brightening Magnolia… just the outcome wasn’t as expected. Firming & Brightening? Sorry, I didn’t notice the result either.

Naruko eye gelly2

I was pleased with the lovely aroma of Naruko Rose & Snow Fungus series and willing to try more products from the series. I also purchased Magnolia Brightening Night Eye Gelly, hence I was using both eye gels concurrently. When I was dissatisfied with the hydrating result of Rose series, I switched to this Magnolia eye jelly.

.

At the time of reviewing these products, the Taiwan Magnolia Brightening series has been upgraded with additional Peptides ingredients and named under EX series.

.

Naruko eye gelly1-1

Rose & Snow Fungus range is enriched with Phytoferulin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Vitamin B5, Snow fungus, Demaveil, Ceramide, Vitamin A, amino, essential oils. The hydrating result was good, skin felt softer next morning but did nothing much to pores. I applied thick layer when skin was very dehydrated, on the other hand, a thin layer would be just enough when weather was humid.

I also asked a sample of the Night Gelly due to curiosity…… I understood they were different literally, however I wondered was there any significant difference between eye jelly and night jelly despite they are aiming different areas.

I like the night gelly to be my eye cream but Oops…  the foundation caked badly

Naruko Eye sleeping mask -peel

.

Apparently I couldn’t distinguish them. They have similar gel consistency which I wasn’t savvy enough to tell their thickness…and they also smelt identically. I used the eye jelly as facial sleeping mask too and that worked fine for my skin. Wait, it did cause few clog pores when I applied an extremely thick layer but that only happened once a while, hence I guess my skin wasn’t congested badly that can still tolerate the suffocating gel film nightly.

This was first time I got to agree with other regarding the great result of sleeping mask. I wasn’t impressed with Laneige sleeping mask before, however I had better result with Naruko sleeping mask which I attributed the credit to thicker gel film of Naruko sleeping mask.

Overall Rose & Snow Fungus Classic Hydrating Night Eye Gelly is passable in my opinion after I compared it with Naruko Taiwan Magnolia Brightening and Firming Night Eye Gelly. The main point is … if you purely ask for hydrating, perhaps with additional aromatics rose therapy.

Naruko eye gelly1

Magnolia Brightening and Firming is all-in-one collection targeting early mature skin. It claims to help lessening wrinkles, dullness and slackening dry skin. It contains Phytoferullin, plant extracts, Magnolia extracts, Hyaluronic Acid, Arbutin and Vitamin C.

I personally more pleased with aroma of Rose series, however, I found Magnolia series suited my aging skin better. Magnolia has slightly richer consistency than Rose Eye Gelly, thus it able to iron out my eye wrinkles much better, also great for facial sleeping mask too. My thirsty skin turned into moist and firm stage with just few nights! For that practical yet vital reason, my skin was preferred wearing Magnolia rather than Rose though my nose loved Rose more.

Not only happy with the exceptional moisturizing result, the affordable price also important. Another goody is, I think it contains “better” ingredient compared to Rose’s eye jelly because the Magnolia eye jelly turned slightly yellowish after a period (picture attached below), whereas the Rose eye jelly maintained its original colour under the same storage condition. In my understanding, only natural ingredient will get rotting easily and only active ingredient has real anti-aging value.

Thanks Naruko for keeping the prices affordable. I’m now sleeping mask convert and I actually purchased few sleeping masks (not eye jelly) from Naruko again. Sleeping mask (50ml) has bigger volume than eye jelly (30ml), guess it might be working as good as eye jelly but with lower price? Well, I can tell after I try the sleeping masks in next few months.

.

.

My T-zone can be very oily while my U-zone can be very dry, so I thought of using specific product for different zones was smart approach? Indeed, specific zone care is encouraged by many beauty experts but I guess I had no luck with the product I tried – Tea tree Oil Out Balancing serum.

 .

Naruko has complete Tea Tree product range for acne-prone and oily combination skin. After using 2 bottles of this serum, honestly I was quite disappointed of its claim despite the ingredient list looked impressive. Cosmetics ads promote perfect theory but result truly varied for different skin type and affected by various factors. Nevertheless, though I found it under-delivered but I was still LOOKING FORWARD to using it every day.

 .

 .

The serum is in gel consistency and it felt fairly slippery while spreading on skin. It has cool minty sensation upon application and skin would be slightly tacky until the serum fully dried on skin. It is refreshing, hydrating and absorbed by skin quickly.

 .

 .

I used this serum diligently everyday on oily T-zone, my T-zone still shined and oily after few hours. I could not justify whether the oiliness was reduced after using this serum but the result definitely unimpressed.

 .

In spite of showing “zero” effect for my oily T-zone, its awaking scent was the only point I still enjoyed using it. If you have tried Naruko product, you probably would agree some of their products smell natural-liked, not over-powering, very soothing and calming. The fresh scent dissipated quickly and it will not interfere with other aromatherapy product. This is also the only point that comforts my guilty to splurge on this.

What is your mood when you washing face every morning?

 

Every morning I try to complete all the necessary routines in 30 mins, which makeup takes longest time … ~ 10 mins. Therefore I don’t really “enjoy” my morning face wash, as long as the cleanser removes skin oiliness of the T-zone.

 

Besides Naruko, Taiwan NiuEr’s am+pm range is specially developed for office ladies, who talk about high efficiency, spend most of their time in air-conditioned office, enduring stress at work and only rely on skin care routine every AM & PM. The am+pm brand aims to go beyond the boundaries and allows the product continued taking care of the skin during working hours.

 

 

This concept is nothing new, I assumed this is the common expectation of everyone? For instance, I use a Vitamin C product in morning I do expect it protects my skin all day long; I use a sleeping mask before bedtime I do expect the mask keeps my skin moist throughout the night. Though I admit the assumption might not be always true in reality, many factors are taking into account.

 

 

Instant foaming cleanser is convenient and fulfills the concept of “Efficiency”. One pump is sufficient in morning as it worked well to remove excess skin oiliness, furthermore our skin normally isn’t “polluted” in clean bedroom that needs deep cleansing. In evening, I used two pumps for more thorough cleanse, at least I felt more secure in this way.

 

 

Happy Everyday Flash Foam Wash has citrus smell and I was delighted with the mousy foam to be frankly. Unfortunately I forgot whether it irritates eye or not because I used this 3 months ago without note the point for this review. The cleansing power is very straight forward as shown in below testing pictures, it is rather mild that worked fine for my sensitive skin.

※※※※※※   Cleansing Test   ※※※※※※

(with waterproof shinning lipstick and waterproof mascara)

 

 

Although I didn’t try many from am+pm range but noticeably the range is emphasizing on Dermo-Cosmetics. Using solid and proven ingredients like Vitamin A, B5, C… in higher concentration instead of botanic philosophy of Naruko. The price range of am+pm is also higher than Naruko. Happy Everyday Flash Foam Wash retails at discounted price RM40.50/120ml in Malaysia online Naruko shop.

If not it contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) and parabens, personally I would grade it Excellent and willing to re-purchase. Overall the ingredient list doesn’t look cheap compared to high-end foaming cleanser, much affordable and it’s pleasant to use. It should last 1-2 months usage for two applications per day.

Rating:        Good. May buy again.

 

 

 

I was flattered when a woman in supermarket complimented my smooth & fair skin recently, which probed basic skin care would be enough to maintain good skin. Protect against UVs, exfoliation, balanced diets, exercise and using moisturizer when skin is dry.

I hardly use body moisturizer nowadays since weather here is humid and I don’t sleep in air-conditioned room now. This body butter worked fine while I was in Bangkok but found it rather rich in all-year humid climate of Malaysia that it just sat on skin and never sank in properly.

Nevertheless, this was the product I had been using frequently when I was in Thailand. Strictly speaking it was not excited me but surely something that I felt worth of penny, ideally for slightly dry skin in mild weather.

It smells mild, vanilla-like, sweet and powdery. It is non-greasy, non-irritating and inexpensive.  It retails THB150/200g normally, always on promotion for sure.

I am on the third jar of this. Many months ago, I had a small patch of skin rash on my leg, which triggered by certain foods that I allergy to (assumed). The skin rash healed slowly and no longer felt itchy after I reduced/stopped eating those foods but the skin texture looked a little bit plate-like and the skin tone appeared darker too. During the period, I had tried natural AA body butter, aromatherapy body massage oils and this Boots body butter on the area, obviously the AA body butter improved the skin texture best in my case. That would not be difficult to judge, ingredient make a difference.

Would I buy again? Frankly, may be. I continued searching for better one …
