Korean Skincare Review: Now and After Products

February 27, 2021 Phantasm Darkstar 0 Comment(s)

It's been weeks when I first received these Now and After products that were sent by Celeb.ph official for me to review.

Sharing my review:
MADECASSOSIDE WHITENING TONER
Pros:
It has no artificial fragrance and it is non-drying. It contains 4% Niacinamide which is safe for sensitive skin or for those who are new to niacinamide. It has hyaluronic acid which is a good humectant that can keep your skin moisturized. It also contains tea tree which is known for its anti-acne properties.
Cons:
I don't see much dirt on my cotton when I use this. For me, a good toner does well in removing impurities and traces of dirt on my skin. This product is advertised as a whitening toner, so you might need another toner if you want some really deep cleansing.

NOW AND AFTER NIACINAMIDE 10% WITH ASTAXANTHIN
Pros:
A small drop goes a long way. I didn't get any breakout or purging when I started using this, although, my skin is already used to 10% niacinamide so I guess this is a factor to consider.
Cons:
I didn't like the odor. It reminds me of salmon. Probably because of the astaxanthin.
Neutral:
The astaxanthin looks like fish roe that bursts as you massage it onto your skin.
MADECASSOSIDE 3X WHITENING CREAM
Pros:
It's lightweight and very easy to apply. It uses natural ingredients. Aside from whitening properties, it is also an anti-wrinkle and skin repair cream.
Cons:
It gives a dewy look after applying. I think this cream aims to give you that glass skin look, which is famous among Koreans. It does look great if you have blemish-free skin, but for people like me who have acne and acne scars, it makes me look haggard instead. I would consider using this at night, but not in the morning before wearing makeup.
Neutral:
It has a mild citrusy scent.
What I noticed about all these products are the natural ingredients that they contain. All are whitening—they all contain niacinamide, while the serum and cream both have glutathione. The combined use of these three will surely yield whitening results.
