Meishoku Organic Rose Items
Recently finished off a jar of my Mary & Mary Skin Conditioner Gel and am switching to Meishoku Organic Rose Moisturizer! Yesstyle started carry the organic rose brand and I’ve had pretty good results from their other products in the past. No break outs. So I’m hoping it’ll be the same with the moisturizing cream. I’ll be using it as my night cream :)
I also received the Moisture Lotion and Moisture Emulsion from Yesstyle and will start using once I’m sure the moisturizing cream doesn’t break me out. This way I’ll know if I do break out which item might be causing it. :)
Meishoku Organic Rose Update
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.
