Meishoku Organic Rose Update
Sunday November 11, 2012
Update after using Meishoku Organic Rose Skin Conditioner toner for two weeks.
I used this toner starting two weeks ago. I replaced my usual Clinique toner with this instead each night.
I thought it was OK and gave me some benefits but it didn’t prove to be a holy grail item and I won’t be rushing out to buy it again. I think the Organic Rose Skin Conditioning Gel is better for my skin with better results.
- brightened complexion
- some skin smoothing
- some redness reduction
- less oily t-zone
- did not cause breakouts
Great rose smell and soothing sensation when applying the toner. I used cotton pads and balls to apply the toner each night. The major benefit I noticed was that it brightened my complexion from day one. It also kept my T-zone from getting as oily. I usually use 1 & half blotting papers every afternoon because of my oily T-zone. However when using this toner I barely need 1 full blotting paper. I didn’t see any drastic improvement in pore size, smoothing of skin, or moisturizing.
I wanted to post a before & after because when researching this item there weren’t many before & afters in English or Japanese. So I’ll link my before and after. It’s not pretty. No makeup, except a little shadow & mascara on the before picture, and using indirect sunlight. But you can see how a bit brighter my complexion is and also why I sink money into under eye creams, ha! Too up close & detailed – Here it is.
So not a Holy Grail item. HG would be making my skin so nice I could skip a primer and concealer! But with this I definitely still need base makeup to smooth out pores and cover dark circles and redness. Which is OK. :)
I’m just happy it didn’t give me any zits! I’ll finish the bottle but I probably won’t run out replacing it right away.
