REVIEW: SECRET KEY STARTING TREATMENT ESSENCE ROSE EDITION

Thanks Secret Key Indonesia and Sociolla for sending me this special edition for an honest review.

Love the luxurious frosted glass bottle and rose gold cap.
It comes with a sealed cap

Before I start doing the review, do you know that you can use essence (not just toner) for 7 skin method (you know, that 7 layers of toner). But, of course you have to choose essence with water-like consistency. This layers well (because it’s light) and you can always build up the moisture level by adding layers up until 7. Or you can do a simple mini facial by soaking it with a thin cotton pad, leave it for three minutes for soothing purpose.

This treatment essence claims to moisturize, brighten, good for sebum control, clearer skin and improve skin elasticity. It’s also free of 10 harmful factors, with added Rose Flower Water (great for dry skin).

SPOT THE DIFFERENCE: BEFORE & AFTER STE

Please note that it contains 94% of Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (identified as Fungal Acne trigger on skincarisma.com)

Go get this if you:

  • Have dry and dehydrated skin
  • Have no problem with fungal acne
  • Don’t mind with mild yeast-like scent (like most of fermented skincare products)
  • Like minimal ingredients list (this only contains 9 ingredients)
  • Like moisturized and instant radiant effect on skin
  • Want an affordable essence that can prep your skin in a gentle way

And make sure you get the original Secret Key by shopping at Sociolla, here (good news, they’re having Payday Promo all 30% off).

REVIEW: SECRET KEY SNOW WHITE

Thanks Sociolla and Secret Key Indonesia for sending me this PR Kit for honest review.

SNOW WHITE MILKY PACK

It supposed to be a wash-off facial mask. The thick texture is so opaquely white, frankly I can’t imagine applying this on my face, but I will use it for darker parts on my body, like knees and stuffs.

So, you are supposed to apply this on clean, dry skin, and leave it on for two to three minutes, then rinse (without soap). When rinsing, it felt like trying to get rid of SPF with only water. So yes, the whitening effect is quite impressive, but honestly this product confused me.

SNOW WHITE CREAM

Contains stearic acid so might not be safe for fungal acne. But this is a very nice moisturizing and brightening face cream to actually brighten up skin tone (also contains niacinamide as one of their ingredients). They claimed that it’s also an ‘all-in-one base cream’ so we can skip BB Cream, makeup base and moisturizer.

Lightly scented, the texture inside the jar packaging looks intimidatingly opaque white. But, when applied, there’s when the magic happens. It immediately melted into clear lotion texture when rubbed, absorb nicely and gave a smooth effect (from the silicone as one of their ingredients).

I’d love this cream if it’s fungal-acne safe.

SNOW WHITE SPOT GEL

Unlike the previous two, this comes in a gel texture. If you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll know I have soft spot for gel texture because of my sensitive fungal-acne prone skin. So, no wonder I like this mild and light gel.

However, this is not safe for fungal acne because it contains PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil.

As the name stated, it is a spot gel and they recommend to use this on small areas which need brightening, like armpits, elbows, knees and bikini lines.
