I was surprised to see the inside, in a glance, the texture looks like honey! ^^ It even has a nice citrusy scent, which I like. When I lather it with water, it immediately turn into a foam.

The result:
After using this, my skin felt moist, as if it’s being moisturized. It takes oil away without drying, me likey.. ^^ I feel fresh and clean, and my face feels plumpy and bouncy!
Also, since it’s paraben (preservatives) free, I can rest assured that’s it’s natural and safe for my skin. Cleansing my face is much more exciting when I know that it’s full with all the good ingredients above. Open-mouthed smile

The sample of Epiderme Matte Gel

The inside.

The texture is almost similar like the cleansing gel, still looks like honey, hehe. But it’s in gel form and lighter. The scent is is citrusy and a bit woody to me. When it’s spread on my face, it’s absorbed to my skin quickly and leaving it matte-soft.
When I used this, my skin feels calmer and healthier. The sebum control is also good, after using it my skin is oil free longer than it’s usually was. Me satisfied! ^^

Here’s the inside.

mask

First of all, when I try on any beauty product, the first thing I usually do is to sniff it. When I sniffed this mask, it smells a bit salty, like there’s a bit of sea feeling in it.  Maybe because it contains Sea Buckthorn Extract and Seanamin®SU (Complex of marine brown and red algae) so no wonder it smelled like the sea, hehe..
The texture as you can see above is thick and creamy gel, but in fact it’s light on the skin.  It’s quick to absorb and after a while (30s to 1 min), there’s a tingling minty sensation on my face. I can feel the mask is working, hehe.
The result after using this for 30 minutes, I can’t really see it straight away after washing my face with water. But, after I leave it overnight (I used this mask before sleep), when I woke up the next morning, I was stunned to see my face looked brighter and I have glowing complexion! When I applied my office makeup in the morning, my makeup glides on easily. Wowww.. ^o^

Conclusion:
I think all Epiderme products have great combination of natural ingredients, benefit the skin and organic, that’s a plus point. I’m really liking Epiderme products and hoping to see more of them in the future, so please open a counter here in Indonesia? hehe.. ^^
Thank you very much to Epiderme who has sent me the samples, I’m really happy about the result of the products..

Alrighty, see you on the next post! ^^
