Thanks to Patyka Indonesia for having me last week at the launch of their new range: CLEAN, HYDRA & PURE.
At the launch, I surely learned a lot about this skincare certified organic brand from Paris.
- The first product from this brand is HUILE ABSOLUE, which created way back in 1922. The formulas haven’t changed since.
- Currently, it took them 3 to 5 years to develop one product.
- All of their products have ECOCERT Certification since 2002, and became the first cosmetics brand in the world to be awarded Ecocert organic certification.
- Most of their products are vegan (because some of them still use bees wax) and they do not test on animals.
- Only botanical actives not grown in France are sought somewhere in the world, but all of their products are fully manufactured in France, including their unique box packaging.
- Last but not least, these new range will be more affordable and dedicated for more wider age group from 20 years up.
And of course, we came home with their PR Kit. Mostly contains PURE range, which I chose because of my oily skin problem. So, let’s begin the review, shall we?
It’s one of their CLEAN range, which actually consists of 3 items: cleansing oil, cleansing foam, and toner. Basically, it’s a basic cleansing routine range.
CLAIM: eliminate impurities and particles of pollution accumulated during the day. Deeply cleanses for a radiant and smooth skin.
THE ‘WOW’ INGREDIENTS: Aloe Vera (for its’ moisturizing purpose) and Moringa (highly detoxifying).
PROS: Yesssss!!!! It’s safe for Fungal Acne and it’s soap-free.
CONS: Still contains fragrance
THOUGHTS: I love this, seriously. It caught my attention at the launch event, because unlike any other facial foam that I’ve tried, this glides so luxurious and beautifully on skin. It’s still foamy even though it’s soap free, but the cloudy foam didn’t pull on that disappearing act on your skin (if you know what I mean). Yes that cloud of foam feels so wonderful on my skin. Highly recommended, guys!
One of their PURE range, dedicated for combination to oily skin.
CLAIM: Remove all impurities and excess sebum. Rebalance and smooth the skin. Imperfections are reduced and pores are tightened.
THE ‘WOW’ INGREDIENTS: Organic Mint Floral Water (it’s a natural astringent), Prebiotics from natural sugar, and (they had me at this) Botanical Salicylic Acid. So, they use vegetable salicylic acid, extracted from Wintergreen.
PROS: Another Fungal Acne safe product (yeay!)
CONS: Alcohol and Fragrance
THOUGHTS: Even though it’s fragranced, I found the scent really pleasing. It does smell like mint water, very refreshing to sort of waking up my skin in the morning.
Also from their PURE range. It is a moisturizer, by the way.
CLAIM: Regulates the production of sebum throughout the day and mattifies the skin without drying it.
THE ‘WOW’ INGREDIENTS: Burdock Root Organic (sebum regulating), Prebiotics from natural sugars (promote the growth of the microbial flora which protects the skin) & Natural Silica Powder (absorbs excess sebum)
PROS: Well, it is a mattifying moisturizer. What’s not to love?
CONS: Not safe for Fungal Acne because it contains Jojoba Seed Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil. And it has alcohol and fragrance.
THOUGHTS: Textured like light gel and smells wonderful. And unlike most mattifying moisturizer which contain silicone, this one does not have any. They use natural silica powder to absorb excess sebum and shine, and to create that soft but not overpower matte.
Last but not least from the PURE range.
CLAIM: Absorbs excess sebum and cleanses the pores. Unclogs pores without drying the skin.
THE ‘WOW’ INGREDIENTS: Plant-derived Charcoal (sanitize skin and regulates the sebum production), Green Clay (as decongestant), and Zinc (cleanses and purifies).
PROS: It is a wash-off mask (leave it for 10 minutes) or use it for spot treatment (for night time use only).
CONS: Not safe for Fungal Acne and has fragrance.
THOUGHTS: First, I use this as spot treatment. It didn’t budge throughout my sleep, until I took them off in the morning. Of course, it didn’t heal acne overnight. But, I found this work well on almost there pimples. So when you found that spots, put this overnight and they wouldn’t be aggravated acnes.
