Ingredients:
Kaolin Clay, Coco Nucifera extract, Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate, Pineapple Fruit Powder, Honey, Coconut extract, White willow bark extract, marshmallow root extract, Organic Bergamot Essential Oil, Organic White Grapefruit Essential Oil.


Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder comes in form of a plastic bottle.  You will need to use a spatula to scoop the clay powder.  The soft greyish powder just dissolves into milk upon contact with water.  It doesn't bubble so do not apply too much water.

Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder / Ishtar Clay To Milk Cleansing Powder ingredients does look great for oily or sensitive skin with sebum that needs exfoliation.

Kaolin is great to suck sebum from skin.

The surfactant used is derived from coconut.
Disodium Lauryl Sulfosuccinate is a cleansing agent but it is not a sulfate so it is not the same as SLS.

Pineapple is great for light exfoliation while honey provide calming and antibacterial effect on the skin.

White willow bark is BHA, Marshmallow root is used to reduce the pain and swelling (inflammation) of dry skin.

Organic Bergamot is used to calm the skin and clean the skin. it is the least toxic oil of most oils.

Organic White Grapefruit is popular for exfoliating and brighten your skin. It is popular anti aging ingredients in skincare products.


When we talk about cleanser, the goal is to find a gentle cleanser that will not irritate the skin or clogged the pores. This is especially true for acne prone skin that can just get irritated from some harsh cleansing skincare products.

Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder / Ishtar Clay To Milk Cleansing Powder looks great since it has gentle ingredients that clean my skin without irritation.  My skin feels soft and moist after washing.  It has low pH of pH5-6(mix with water of pH7) which is the pH of our skin too.  The scent of clay is really very faint actually unless one use more powder than water ratio.

The powder melts into the water and coloured the water slightly greyish.  There isn't feeling of beads with this cleanser.  It helps my skin to clear up my acne faster even when I was only using the cleanser with a few of my other acne products.

As for cleansing power, I am surprised with the ability to remove even sweatproof makeup.  As for the eyes area, I use a cotton pad soak in the mixture of the powder and water.  However, it doesn't work on those sweatproof Japanese mascara.

It is sure easily to carry for travelling.  The only thing is I have to use a spatula or else I will pour too much of the powder out of the bottle.

Overall, Ishtar Cleansing Clay powder / Ishtar Clay To Milk Cleansing Powder is great low pH powder suitable for travelling, combination acne prone skin that have redness.

7 FAVOURITE INGREDIENTS FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN

Hi gorgeous,

Here is finally a post on 7 favourite ingredients for acne prone skin that I have tested and use it to help clear my skin.  I have combination (t-zone oily, normal on other place), acne prone skin that is prone to redness.

The ingredients recommended here are ingredients that I have been using and some I had used for more than 3 years.  Still, there isn't one single ingredients that work with every skin type so do your research, test it on a small part of your face for at least 3 days first and don't try everything on your face all at once.

There are some people that are allergic with tea tree, some with BHA and some with neem so do your research too😊.

Also I didn't include azealic acid, tretinoin, BHA or snail inside this. The reason being I have not tried the products to talk about it(azealic acid&tretinoin) , have not met products that work (BHA) or the ingredient is not meant to clear acne. (snail is for healing&hydration).



1.  Centella Asiatica
Centella asiatica, gotu kola, tiger grass, pennywort -7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Centella asiatica

Centella asiatica has a lot of names from gotu kola, tiger grass (the tiger heal by rolling on it), pennywort.  The component arrived from it are called Asiaticoside, Asiatic Acid, Madecassic Acid.  So, the name with Cera, madecossine probably has their star ingredient as centella asiatica.

Centella Asiatica is 2017/2018 popular ingredient for calming the skin and acne.
I like centella asiatica in high concentration as it is actually a very mild ingredient and one would probably not see the effect if the centella asiatica is not high up on the ingredient list.  Centella asiatica in topical form is to calm the redness, fasten the healing and reduce scarring.  It doesn't have antibacterial or antifungal ability so so you need to pair it up with another ingredient that can clear those acne.

Centella asiatica is great for those that cannot use any sort of strong actives since most actives can burn the skin leaving it more prone to breakouts and sensitivity.  One can wear it during the day since it doesn't have intoxication report.  The plants itself can be consumed ☺ (I drank it fresh without sugar before for science but I would not recommend it- my stomach flip itself 😣. It is better cooked or in smoothies)

Centella asiatica has been one of the to go ingredients when my skin is raw and red from the acne breakouts and testing of products.

Recommendation:
iunik tea tree relief serum
Chica Y Chico Tota 3.0
ALIVE:LAB Centella Dressing Powder



2. Neem


Neem-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Neem


Neem is one of the ingredients that works for my skin.  Neem is not for pregnant or breastfeeding mother since it has some sort of birth control ability in it.  It works for people with hormonal acne and also for fungal acne. Combine it with some other ingredients, it just clear up the fungal acne that otherwise just stay and spread on my face.
I prefer the powder form since it doesn't have the stinky smell of the neem oil.  I consume the powder if I have no time to apply it on my face. The powder can be consumed since it is from the leaves. Don't consume the neem oil because it is poisonous.
If you have hormonal acne, neem is great to help regulate the hormone and acne. It is a natural birth control in the past. As for male, it is best not to consume it but use it topically.

Recommendation: Himalaya Neem powder
                              Himalaya Purifying Neem Face Wash (for combination skin)



3. Ginger& turmeric
Ginger-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Ginger

Ginger is great as a tea item and for food to deal with cold and inflammation.  Drinking ginger tea with a little turmeric help with acne and to warm up the body.  Some people find that their skin clear up with turmeric mask but be careful as it can dye your skin yellow and you will look weird.
For female, drink it on your monthly to help to warm up your body to reduce those cramps.

However, avoid ginger if you are having sore throat or migraine because of the heat.

Recommendation: Vicco turmeric cream



4. Mandelic Acid (AHA)


Mandelic acid-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Mandelic acid

Mandelic acid is one type of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA).  It is made from bitter almonds.  It is recommended for acne prone because it is anti bacterial, the weakest exfoliating acid if you count by the exact percentage of concentration, increase skin cell turnover rate and gently removing dead skin cells.

Mandelic acid that is 5%- to 10% is made for daily use on every skin type.  It is best to use it daily at night to exfoliate the skin and accelerate the skin healing process at night.

Mandelic acid that is 20% is strong and should only be use twice or thrice in a month since you need a lot of healing time after that.  Remember to use hydrating product after the 20% mandelic acid else the skin can burn.  Don't combine it with other strong AHA, BHA, retinol or vitamin C on the same day as that is risking your skin to damage skin.

If you wanted AHA for your acne prone, try a mandelic acid first before trying other AHA because most people report back that it is easier to use mandelic acid and many see results of smaller pores, cleanser pores and lesser acne after they start using mandelic acid.

Recommendation:
By Wishtrend Mandelic Acid 5% Skin Prep Water


5. Tea tree

Tea tree( Melaleuca alternifolia) -7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Tea tree( Melaleuca alternifolia) 

Tea tree
( Melaleuca alternifolia) is a popular ingredients in topical products for acne prone skin.  It is a common ingredients found in products for oily and combination skin.  Do not apply pure essential oil on the skin because it will burn the skin, trigger the skin to produce more oil and cause more irritation to the acne.  Now, tea tree water appears more in combination with other ingredients to calm the skin and be more gentle on the skin. Essence and serum that is made for acne usually use tea tree water to provide the benefits of antiseptic and gentle at the same time.

There are some people that develop allergic to tea tree products but then not everyone does.  Tea tree oil product is antiseptic and antibacterial but then it doesn't work for fungal acne or hormonal acne.

Tea tree oil is not for consumption as it is toxic so only use it for external application.  Sheet mask containing low amount of tea tree oil is great to calm the skin and treat the skin.

Recommendation: Naruko tea tree night gelly
                              Thursday Plantation tea tree oil (do not use it directly undiluted)
                              Aiken tea tree oil (local brand)


6. Green Tea

Green tea (camellia sinensis)-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Green tea (camellia sinensis)

Green tea (camellia sinensis) is also one of my favourite ingredients for drinking since warm Japanese sencha always calm my skin. It is also one of cheapest ingredients for DIY sheet mask with compressed mask from Daiso.  However, it is not recommended to drink it for during the time of the month especially if you tend to have stomach cramp since it is 'cooling' .  Avoid green tea if you are someone with low iron since green tea reduce the ability to absorb iron.

If you do not have such problem, green tea has antioxidant to help with skin acne caused by eating too much heat food or lack of sleep.

However, it is a gentle ingredients mostly for calming.  So, it is nice to use green tea as face mask or look for products with high concentration of green tea.

Recommendation: Japanese green tea
                              Isn tree green tea toner
                              TonyMoly The Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Cream (sorry have not try this one)
                              Nacific Fresh Green tea seed serum (the original name is Natural Pacific) (wish to                                                                                                try this one soon 🙏 )


7.  Mugwort
Mugwort-7 Favourite Ingredients For Acne Prone Skin
Mugwort

Mugwort is know as Artemisia vulgaris or an ingredients which looks like weed. It is usually cooked or eaten as a dish for female cramp since it provides heat to the body.  If one find that their stomach area becomes cold, then this is a good dish to eat.

There is a scent to it so it is also used to repel insect and moth.  In skincare, it is anti inflammatory, antiviral and insecticidal.  

It is not recommended if one have hypertension since it increased more blood flow and frequency of migraine.  Digesting the oil is not recommended as it is toxic in the long term.

Recommendation: Hanyul Artemisia fresh calming water (hope to try this one soon🙏)




Some of the first bottle are sent for review with no obligation, I bought the other skincare products myself. However, the opinions expressed here are my own and honest as always.

CRAMP SAVIOR: REVIEW ON PEOPLEPIE HERB WARM PACK / MEDI HEALLY THE THERAPIST HERBAL WARM PACK

Hi beautiful,

Korean cosmetics came a lot with a lot innovative products including for your monthly cramps.  Introducing a Korean products for female that has to deal with the monthly cramps. I know that not everyone has that kind of problem but for people who has to deal with it every month, I just want to say that I understand your pain.

Sometimes, the pain is just intense that I just unable to do anything but of course I can't call in sick for this kind of stuff.  Anyway, introduce to you this herbal warm pack that helps to alleviate the monthly problem.

Here is a review of Peoplepie Herb Warm Pack.

Peoplepie Herb Warm Pack comes in a box with three pieces inside.  It is the most sold items in Olive Young it seems. I understand since I need a special warm pack like these too and it is a never ending problem for cramps.

The pack is made from good cotton that is comfortable to place on the stomach.  Inside is the herbs which is made from rose, lavender, clary sage, fennel and ylang ylang.  The packet stick is not that strong so make sure to wear something that hold the packet.

It said that it is 53 celcius heating which can burn on the skin. Honestly, I just place it on my stomach and did not burn myself.  I think it is because my stomach temperature drop so much that it is basically ice cold. That also explain why my cramp is bad because the blood flow is not that well.  It lasted on me for about 4 hours. I think it will last longer if your stomach is not as cold as mine.  I do like the herbal scent that calm my sense and lessen the pain.

Peoplepie Herb Warm Pack does warm up my stomach area and lessen the pain. Price is really affordable too.  It is also easy to use since you just tear the plastic to get that cotton warm pack and stick on your underwear.  I mean who has that energy to go and boil hot warm water to do the heat pack on the stomach?  This is much easier especially for those on the go.

Overall, Peoplepie Herb Warm Pack helps with cramp by warming up the stomach area and since it is made from herbs, it is also great for people who prefer natural products.  I am happy that warm pack like this exist now to make my life easier.  Peoplepie also has those waist warm pack for waist area.

REVIEW ON iUNIK TEA TREE RELIEF SERUM

Hi gorgeous 😃,

I am sure you know that I am all about acne prone skincare products since I acne prone skin. Do you understand my pain of some people giving you unsolicited advise when they never have acne before? Oh, if only we could outgrown that acne phase just by using ONLY water. If only skincare is that easy 😶😔.

I have been using this Korean serum for more than a month, iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum.  This is a gentle and a plant based serum to treat acne and for even dry skin type.

iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum comes in a glass dropper style 50ml bottle. For the price of USD15.49, I think it is really affordable for the ingredients in it.  The green colour comes from the ingredients and it has not synthetic colouring or fragrance in it.

What I like and find interesting is the simple ingredients consisting of Tea Tree Leaf Water 67%, Centella Asiatica Leaf Water 19.5% and the other 13.5 % are extract from plants and preservative.

There are butylene Gylcol, niacinamide, Broccoli extract, alfalfa extract, cabbage extract, wheat germ extract, rapeseed, radish seed, allantoin, beta glucan, adenosine, Ethylhexylglycerin and sodium copper chlorophyllin.

Sodium copper chlorophyllin is to reduce odor since not every plant smells like sugar and flowers  since this product does not contain any added synthetic fragrance.  It is a safe ingredients that had been using for a long time.

I like the short and simple ingredients. Still do check the ingredients list since there can be some people who are allergic to ingredients in it.

iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum is for calming the skin and to treat the acne at the same time. It does not dry my skin at all even when I only apply this serum as the last step since my place is at 35 Celcius (93 F) and humidity that is at least 92%.

Tea tree water is not the same as tea tree oil as it could be a steam distilled fraction from the leaves or is the left over after the tea tree oil is distilled from the plant.  It contains part of the tea tree plant that are soluble in water and usually has a similar smell to the essential oil.  So technicality no tea tree oil, but comes from the tea tree plant.  In other words, tea water is much gentler that tea tree oil because tea tree oil usually will cause burn if it goes undiluted on the skin.

Terpinen-4-ol is a terpene that has an antibacterial and antifungal effect which is an active ingredient of tea tree oil.  The water-soluble fraction identified as terpinen-4-ol, α-terpineol, and 1,8-cineol.  Terpinen-4-ol was able to diminish the production of TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-8, IL-10, and prostaglandin E2 by lipopolysaccharide-activated monocytes.

It means that it is a potential antioxidant.  Tree Leaf Water 67% with Centella Asiatica Leaf Water 19.5% and other ingredients to soothe the skin irritation, whack the pimples into submission and then corn it with healing wound ingredients such as vitamin E, adenosine (for proper healing with no scars), anti-irritating and stimulate growth of healthy tissue.

Beta glucan, Broccoli, alfalfa, cabbage contains great antioxidants like vitamin A, C, and E work to support health function of immune cells and boost immune system.  Our skin do absorb some product of what we put on our skin so serum does help the skin to heal faster.

iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum is a great nice gentle serum.  The serum is unscented and it is a very watery liquid. It absorb almost immediately upon application on my skin.  It is not drying at all given that I use it twice a day.  My pimples actually get really tiny the next day and disappeared the day after. As for underground pimples, the one you can feel painful but there is no head to press, it does flatten them out and some immediately come up to a head the next day.  I think it must be the high percentage of all the great ingredients put into this bottle of serum.

I actually stop using all my other acne products to try it for two days and the effect is still wonderfully fast and gentle.  Given that the bottle is 50ml, I think it is a great deal and I myself would recommend it for someone who could not deal with strong BHA, AHA or just wanted something that they can use daily, show fast result but being gentle at the same time.

Overall, iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum is a great acne prone serum for all skin types.  The simple short ingredients make it great for even sensitive skin like mine.  Currently, it is one of my staple product for acne.

REVIEW ON SKIN AND LAB DR.SPOT CLEAR DON'T TOUCH TROUBLE

Hi beautiful,

Today is Skin and Lab Dr.Spot Clear Don't Touch Trouble made by Korean dermatologist laboratory.

This an acne spot treatment that I had drag the review to this day because I bought it and don't really have all the time to review everything.  I had already finished this tube before writing this review to confirm my opinion on it.  Besides, I must have caught some laziness symptom that I am unable to write much these few months.

So, here is the review on Skin and Lab Dr.Spot Clear Don't Touch Trouble.

Skin and Lab Dr.Spot Clear Don't Touch Trouble
Skin and Lab Dr.Spot Clear Don't Touch Trouble comes in a tube which is easy to dispense the product.  The light yellowish gel smell of fresh leaves.  The gel absorb easily into my skin easily.  It does dry my skin.

The ingredients are of all natural extract that calm the skin and suitable for someone looking for plant based acne spot treatment.  The ingredients are plant based such as Sophora Extract, Portulaca Extract, Dryopteris Crassirhizoma Nakai Extract, Plantain Extract, Akane Extract which is my opinion are just too gentle and more suitable for very mild acne and dry skin type.  It doesn't have any 'actives' or strong ingredients that can exfoliate the skin.

For me, it only work for whiteheads, calm redness and get rid of the red acne marks.  However, it is not effective for moderate acne, cystic acne, blackheads or fungal acne.  Those other type of acne needs something much more stronger than this gentle calming spot treatment.  The great thing about this Skin and Lab Dr.Spot Clear Don't Touch Trouble is that you can apply a lot of it on your skin without worrying that your face will turn red or burn your skin out of it.

If you have more than just whiteheads, I think you would probably need other stronger acne treatment products than just relying on this Skin and Lab Dr.Spot Clear Don't Touch Trouble. You can use it alone but I think you won't see much result compare to combining with an exfoliating toner or serum.

Overall, Skin and Lab Dr.Spot Clear Don't Touch Trouble is suitable for someone with very mild acne, loving plant ingredients, dry skin, redness and cannot use any stronger actives.

REVIEW ON COSRX CLEAR FIT MASTER PATCH VS COSRX ACNE PIMPLE MASTER PATCH

Hi gorgeous,

Cosrx is a popular Korean brand for people dealing with acne and skin texture. Many swear by the effectiveness of Cosrx products.  Cosrx acne pimple master patch is one of the popular items to draw out the exudate, keep the area moist and clean.

Cosrx recently came out with Cosrx clear fit master patch which is the newer version of their most famous Cosrx acne pimple master patch. I got them from a lucky draw 😄 (so happy) .
Here is a review and comparison between Cosrx clear fit master patch and Cosrx acne pimple master patch.

a)The size of the pimple patches:
Cosrx clear fit master patch 18 patches (10mm X 18ea) . the medium size of the Cosrx acne pimple patch.

Cosrx acne pimple master patch 24 patches ( 7mm X 10ea + 10mm X 5ea +12mm X 9ea)


In terms of the pimple patches, there is only one size for the clear fit while the acne pimple has three size. So, it is kind of wasteful for someone that like to pick small size for their zits.

from left: Cosrx acne pimple master patch, Cosrx clear fit master patch

b)The look and build:

Clear fit-almost invisible and slightly raised in the middle of the patch. The white paper which the pimple patch is on is cut in half so that you can peel the paper, to reveal half of the pimple patches in which you can take with your finger. no scent.

Acne pimple- yellowish visible flat patch. the paper in which the patches are on is not cut so you have to peel the acne pimple using a tweezer. no scent.

Clear fit is invisible so you can wear it during the day.  The Acne pimple is still visible on my korean 22 skin colour actually but it will look invisible for those with darker tone. Also it is hard to cover with makeup too compare to the clear fit.

Clear fit doesn't come off the skin when the patch is full since the exudate fluid is contained in the middle. Acne pimple with the flat surface comes off easier when it is full with the exudate fluid. So, one will always need to check if it is full.

from top: Cosrx clear fit master patch. Cosrx acne pimple master patch


c) Function
Clear fit- suck up exudate (exudate is fluid from wound)
Acne pimple- suck up exudate

In term of ingredients, both has the same ingredients in the same sequence. No ingredients for treating acne. Pimple patches are not for preventing acne or rid of acne.  It doesn't work to clear up your skin if use alone.  Use it more as something to prevent infection.

Both of the clear fit and acne pimple function the same to me. It only works on whiteheads and not for cystic acne or those pesky underground acne.  The main function is to suck up the exudate fluid from the whiteheads.  So, when the water got sucked up by those patches, your pimple sure does look flat.  It is good to have for whiteheads to quicken the healing time and to prevent inflammation. Applying pimple patches on top my acne does prevent me from the feeling of picking the hell out of those pimples that keep showing its redness to me.



Overall, Cosrx clear fit master patch and Cosrx acne pimple master patch are both nice acne patches to prevent further inflammation of the acne or whiteheads. I prefer invisible clear fit since I can wear it to work and also under makeup without people asking what I am using.  It is just that one size makes it hard. It is waste to use the middle size for smaller pimples or there won't be size for big pimples that pass the size of the medium 10mm patches.
