Skin Watchers Ceramizing Essence Toner [Reformulated, New Packaging]: A Review

Late last year, I got a lot of Skin Watchers products. Yoon, the brains behind the brand, has been seeing my reviews of his products and contacted me to offer to send some more products to try as a thank you. I am very grateful because I love how he formulates with minimal fragrance and almost no silicones. So, please expect my upcoming reviews to be about Skin Watchers products.

First up is the Ceramizing Essence Toner. I have a review of the old formulation (Skin Watchers Ceramizing Essence Toner: A Review). TL;DR: I did not like the old formulation, mainly because of the scent.

CLAIMS: Skin Watchers Ceramizing Essence Toner contains 30ml of essence that locks moisture in. Free from parabens, mineral oil, benzophenone, and artificial color, this product contains various organic ingredients such as lavendar water and aloe vera leaf juice powder. Using hyaluronic acid, ceramide, squalane, glycerin, and macadamia seed oil, this product deeply moisturizes your skin. Use it together with Ceramizing Cream for optimum results.

INGREDIENTS: Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Squalane, C14-22 Alcohols, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Ceramide, Sodium Hyaluronate, Butylene Glycol, Impatiens Balsamina Flower Extract, Rosa Multiflora Fruit Extract, Lepidium Meyenii Root Extract, Aureobasidium Pullulans Ferment, Opuntia Ficus-Indica Stem Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Undaria Pinnatifida Extract, Coptis Japonica Root Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glyceryl Stearate, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Arginine, Allantoin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Betaine, Dimethicone, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Ethylhexylglycerin, Chlorphenesin, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil

Mesoestetic Ultimate W+ Whitening Foam and Essence: A Review

A month ago, Caroline from Eiskin Laboratories got in touch with me and offered to send me a couple of products from Mesoestetic for a brand collaboration, in exchange for a review.

Mesoestetic is a brand from Spain which develops a large variety of topical products for anti-aging and professional treatment for over-all skin care.

They sent over two products from the Ultimate W+ Whitening line which I will be reviewing both in this post. Of course I was excited, I needed help in fading acne marks.
