Sponsored Review & Contest: Enchant, Natural Herbal Korean Cosmetics (Comments Closed)

Note: I used to put prices as a service for those who wanted to know, but I'm feeling this exposes my spendings abit too much, so I'm no longer going to put in prices. ^__^ "Dermona and Enchant products are manufactured by Jung San Bio Technology Co. Ltd in Seoul, Korea, and represents the results of thousands of years of Oriental Herbal knowledge combined with modern herbal and cosmetic technologies. Established in 1980 by Mr Seong Nyoung Kim, he was looking for a product that would help eliminate some skin ailments that his family was experiencing. Unable to find any relief through western medical practices, he was reminded of how his Korean ancestors maintained soft, healthy skin without the aid of modern science. Mr Kim thereupon began to study and travel extensively to obtain more information about traditional Oriental remedies. His efforts culmitated in the discovery of a 17th Century manuscript entitled "Encyclopedia of Oriental Medicines and Practices." In this document he found many herbal compounding formulas that specifically helped to heal and maintain healthy skin."

MF Natural Cleansing Oil

"Restoring and Balancing Nature's Intentions for the Skin

The natural ingredients efficiently remove all traces of makeup gently yet effectively as well as other types of pore clogging dirt while mainting the skin's natural sebum levels. The result is skin that is balanced, soft and comfortable.

Directions: Place 2-3 pumps of cleansing oil onto dry hands and gently massage oil onto a dry face with dry hands. Dampen hands, and emulsify oil by massagins a small amount of warm water on top of the oil. Rinse well with lukewarm water.

Main Ingredients: Apricot kennel oil, Complex active vitamins, Pine Resin oil, Camellia oil, Rice Bran oil

Net Contents: 210ml"

My Experience:

A very effective cleanser that removes all makeup including powder, eye-makeup, mascara and eyeliner. Rinses off clean. I still double-cleansed with a foaming cleanser as is my usual habit but some people might find it ok to just use this cleanser on its own. A tad less liquid than most other cleansers I've tried, the sticky consistency makes initial dry application slightly difficult, but after using water, the cleanser emulsifies efficiently making the massage process smooth and easy.

These do not take away the effectiveness of the product but I personally didn't take to the packaging, design and strong fragrance. I think it might be the smell of the Camellia that threw me off. It brings back strong memories of old ladies, I think it might be my strong personal association of the smell to my grandmother. The packaging also gives me an impression of a throw back to retro products.

MF Natural Multi BB Cream

"Soothing, Brightening and Protecting the Skin

The Natural Multiu BB (Blemish Balm) cream supplies sufficient nutrition from herbal ingredients to damaged skin caused by peeling, UV rays and other stresses and also revitalizes physiological functions. Furthermore, it has sedation, rejuvenation and spot-covering effects. The sedation effect allows for better moisture absorption from particular Korean herbal ingredients. The process rejuvenates tired sensitive skin caused by various stimulations. By using certain water proof characters from Liquid Mineral Technology and also complex herbal powders such as Lonicera flower and Coix seed, the cream not only absorbs sebum and sweat but covers skin spots naturally and maintains skin color. As result of its positive effects, BB Cream has become extremely popular in Korea and Japan as well.

Directions: For skin protection and natural-looking coverage, lightly pat a small amoutn of product over entire face in the final stage of basic skin toning. The cream is excellent for use as sun cream, makeup-base, or a foundation for natural -looking coverage.

Main Ingredients: Apricot Kernal, Mume fructus, Cypress, Pine Bud, Complex active vitamins,

Net Contents: 50ml"

My Experience:

The BB cream emerges from the tube in 2 layers, one watery and another creamy, though I was careful to shake the bottle thoroughly before pressing out the cream. However, it spread out nicely and mixed in together well upon application. The cream is on the dry side and provides a good coverage and a matte finish. Personally I prefer a glowy finish and sheer coverage, as you can see the BB cream accentuated most of my skin flaws, such as dryness, open pores (from aging) and creases. It's also abit too pink and pale for me, even though I do have slightly more pink undertones in my skin compared to most Asians. I think it'll be a good BB Cream for skin that requires good oil control and coverage.

While wearing this cream, I received alot of stares and second looks, I wonder if it's because I looked prettier than usual or is it because the cream is too light for me? LOL!!! Buahaha.
