Sponsored Ad: Go bouncy with foam!


Photobucket

Sorry! Have been very very busy with internship lately! First week of intern and I am already holding mini projects! I shall blog about it in a seperate blog post though ^^ Anyway, I received the new Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash the other day for a review! So while I was reading up the product.. here are some facts which I found out about cleansing :

1. Cleansing is the most stressful yet most important step out of all skin care steps!
2. Pre-mature wrinkles, loss of bounciness in skin are a result of stress caused
by cleansing and application of toner & moisturiser.

And so I heard Japanese ladies always try to reduce the stress at every skin care steps.. (why so hardworking one!!)

Japanese girls’ habits:

Cleanser
- Foaming Net to create quality foam to cushion stress
- Limits actual cleansing to 1 min.

Toner
- Instead of harsh wiping motion with cotton pad, they use patting motion instead.

Moisturizer
- Use the middle and fourth finger (the weakest out of all) to pat moisturiser in.
- Fingers always move in an outward motion

And I've never even bothered to lather my facial cleanser into a foam first.. hahahaha. And hence I found out that foam is the secret behind effective, gentle cleansing!!

Japanese ladies puts a lot of effort (2-3x the time of cleansing) to generate consistent
smooth fluffy foam (with foaming net but I dont know where to find this in Sg :P ) Purpose of doing so is because with finer bubbles, you would be able to clean better AND cushion the cleansing stress from hand on face !!

Hence.. an ideal foam should be

1.Consistent
2.Dense and don’t drip even
when flipped upside down
3.Smooth and bouncy
4.Very small bubbles


But to be truthful... you and I both know that it is not easy to achieve it at all. LOL. I always just used facial cleansing gel, lather it with some water and just wash my face. thats it! Likewise for many lazy / busy singaporeans like us... we have our concerns.

1. The effort taken to lather gel cleanser into foam.
(and think about how much cleanser would have dripped off your hand by then)
2. It is a boring process!
3. Even if you do manage to create foam...
it is often thin foam that does not cover face well
4. PLUS, after all that rubbing, you will only be left with a bit on your hand. :(

Hence Biore has now combined all the Japanese girls' secret into just one bottle!! The Biore Marshmallow Facial Whip Wash is now available in Singapore!! With just a pump you can create quality facial foam!

Compare the results of hand lathering!!
Biore's foam still remains thick and spongey even after I lathered a lot! :D

Directions: Place the bottle on a flat surface, and pump an appropriate amount of foam onto palm and massage onto wet face! One bottle alone can give u 150 pumps.. and I use about 1-2 pumps per usage! so it will probably last me between 1 to 2 months!

What's good about the cleansing ability is that the ultra fine foam is made up of bubbles that are smaller than pores! :O (200 micron) In other words, the cleanser can clean much better as they are so fine they can clean up the dirt effectively on your face. Moreover its collagen enriched! Collagen always moisturizes hence you are not leaving your skin dry and tight after cleansing!

And the foam stays there in place all the while~

Plus, Biore's Marshmallow Facial Whip Wash can maintain its density and shape under pressure better than other competitors! It has the *boing boing* texture lol!! And in other words, it can also help us effectively reduce the pressure we are apply on our face when we cleanse it!

So spongey!! And it bounces back!

Hehe! What I like about this product is that it is soooo convenient!! I do not have to lather anymore because it's instant hahahaha! And I tried washing half my face with Biore's Marshmallow Wash and the other with a gel cleanser. And it really feels different!! The side which I used a gel cleanser is clean,.. but if I compare to the other side which I used the marshmallow wash, I can still feel that there is still a bit of oiliness to half of my face T_T

And texture wise it does not drip or anything.. which means I wont be wasting any foam while I lather on my face and after lathering it on my face, it becomes nice and thick yet spongey at the same time.

And of course the packaging too! Its baby pink and white ahhhhhhh so cute! And I really dig the clip on the bottle. Every soap / shampoo should come with them!

But one thing that could be improved on could be the fragrance? ^^ Because right now the fragrance of the after-wash is mehhhh normal, or does it smells of collagen? I am actually fine with the fragrance, and it doesnt really bothers me. But if it could comes with a floral scent or something it would be a plus point!!
