Thank you Mentholatum Botanics for this freebies! As I promised, here's to the products review..!! :)
I am so not picky about face wash; as long as the it do well at cleaning the face. That's why I tend to go for drugstore products instead of the higher-ends. And that's what making Botanics products are so cool! They are cheap products yet they are so good, chemical-free, provides your facial skin with so many benefits!
Hydra Whitening Wash with Arbutin and Agave
Boy, it's very tricky to describe the scent of this one! haha. it's not a very unique scent, though. almost like a typical soap scent, yes, almost, but is a very soft and subtle fragrant; neither floral nor fruity. okay i give up haha.
thick and creamy. it's very foamy too. I only put like very little (half of the amount showed in the picture), mix a little water and it foams up and is enough to cover my whole face.
It leaves your face feeling super clean and fresh but is quite drying and tight especially for a very dry skin like mine T_T
Moisturizing & Brightening Wash with Rosehip Oil
If you're roses fan, you're going to love it even more!! It's the true rose smell! You can really tell it's a natural scent. It's like smelling the roses in the garden; a very subtle heavenly scent! I love it!!
this one, has a quite thin and gel-like texture. Very foamy too!
Leaving face feeling so soft and thoroughly cleansed. I was expecting it to leave a moisturizing feel, but it's rather dry than that. But good thing is that it doesn't make my skin feel so tight.
Oil & Blemish Control Foaming Wash with Tea Tree and Ylang Ylang
spa-like scent. The scent that makes sure feel rest assured that it can help you out with all the annoying and frustrating blemishes, you know what I mean?! haha!
The fact that foam is pump straight out of the bottle makes me feel like a child again! So exciting! hehe. The foam is very fine and it can be easily put onto the skin.
Apart from the tea tree scent, the after-effect feel is just like how it is with the pump wash above :)
Brightening and Firming Facial Sheet Mask with Rosehip Oil
it's always good to get the mummy feeling when putting on sheet mask after a longggggg day at work!!
smell almost like medicinal herb which I found slightly odd but it is somehow relaxing for treating the face.
a typical sheet mask soaked in a slimy serum/essences. packed generously with extra essences to be pat even more after the 15 minutes time putting on the mask. you can never complain to that! hehe
adhered well to the skin. cooling, hydrating and brightening effect can easily be felt and seen after the 15minutes. not feeling super moisturized afterwards which I feel is because it's been absorbed really well into the skin!!
That's all for today.
Thanks for reading!
Until next time!
