Beauty: Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner (Beauty Keeper)


Well spent almost half of Sunday posting about my gifts from Beauty Keeper through the  Sample Store seeders campaign.


You could read my intro post HERE and my post for  MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser HERE.

So let us start my adventure with  Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner.

Got these info from the Beauty Keeper website



Magic Words for an almost 44 YO lady like me???
  • Natural Ingredients
  • Soothes and soften the skin
  • Minimize pores appearance
  • Skin repairing 
Oh I must say how pretty the bottle is and yes it's full size (125ml)


The bottle is blue so dont worry, the product is actually transparent.



Disclaimer: my face hahahahahah.

Before and it was after using the MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser


Ok now time to slap some of the toner.

Directions (from the box)

What I actually did.. 
1. Full 2 pump on my palms and dotted it unto my face then as in gently sweep it over my face
2. Full 2 pump on my palms and then rubbed my hands and I gently patted my hands over my face.

It actually was absorbed quite quickly onto my face unlike other toners wherein I need to fan my face hahahahaha. It didn't left my skin dry which I was surprised usually those quick dry toners will leave my face dry.


Left my skin smooth and soft, I was actually thinking of skipping all the other skin routines hahahah but nope can not do hahahahha 44 year old remember.

Applying the rest of my skin care... Essence, moisturizers was a breeze and the surprising part I didn't left me feeling oily.

I've been using the Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner and MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser 2 days now, I didn't had any breakouts so far (Yeheey!!!) and although there's no obvious apparent improvement on my skin. I did like how it felt after using it.

I love that Beauty Keeper sent me a full size product, which means I could update this occasionally until I finish it. and see what difference it could make on my old and getting older skin hahahahha.

Beauty: MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser (Beauty Keeper)


On my previous post I introduced the 2 products that Sample Store sent me through their Beauty Keeper Campaign. You could read it HERE.

Since the post about the products are going to be lengthy decided to split them up which means 3 posts hahahahahah. I really should stop posting several topics in one seating...oh we

Anyways... I received MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser and as said on my previous post I did go the the Beauty Keeper website to find more about the product but I cant seem to find it.

Did some googling and manage to find some and the box did came with a leaflet so here is my kinda 1st impression.

I've been using MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser for 2 days now.

Let's talk about it.

Packaging...





They say that This is a breakthrough face cleanser that bubbles up by itself when exposed to air, and gently whisks away makeup and skin impurities without any hand rubbing. It contains ingredients to reduce acne, and increase hydration and softness. Soap-free and rich in amino acids, this cleanser is so gentle that it will not strip the skin of its essential moisture.

and it does come with a leaflet to let you know more about the product, here is a bigger and hopefully clearer, needed to cropped out the Chinese writings.  


wordy right hahahahaha,,,magic words for a soon to be 44 year old lady, and I will not rant about how I didn't listen to my late moms advice in skin care hahahahaha.
  • reduces major causes of acne
  • increase in dermal hydration and softness of skin
  • repairs skin and restores balance
  • minimizing pores
Now lets test it out....

It does come in a pump bottle. The product is liquidy, almost transparent.


Upon rubbing


Directions:
Use twice daily in the morning and evening.
No hand rubbing needed. Clean quickly in 30 seconds and rinse off with warm water.

Be warned...my face is coming up hahahahaha...all these pictures are taken on the same night that I received the products.

Before still with some residue of BB cream


Needed to do my pre-clensing ritual...cleansing oil I am using the NEUTROGENA Neutrogena Deep Clean Cleansing Oil got it also from Sample Store



After Oil cleansing...not sure if there is a difference hahahahaha


Usually washing my face with a cleanser is the last step of my shower routine but that night I did it first.. here it goes..

I dispensed half a pump on my palm and rub it on my hands for a few seconds and applied it to my face and of course I gently...emphasize gently ok...in ciruclar motions..it did foam up continued it for the next 30 seconds and washed it off. 

A little amount can go a long way.. after doing this I went back to my old routing of cleansing my face as the last step of my shower... it does foam enough that you could spread it onto your neck, chest and even arms...all the goodness can be shared hahahahah.

There's a bit of fragrance it didn't bother me, it's like a refreshing and cleaning smell..ready don't know how to describe it, it's pleasant for me.





Pat it dry..


I like how it made my skin feel...it didn't dry up my skin..I did feel that it was clean hahahaha and it did made it feel smooth and soft...like its ready to go for the next step of your skin care routine.

I've been using the MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser 2 days now, I didn't had any breakouts so far (Yeheey!!!) and although there's no obvious apparent improvement on my skin. I did like how it felt after using it.

I am not sure about Taiwanese Beauty products so kinda excited to try these products. 

Let's open the box now.



Well, I received the following items

Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner and MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser


I immediately tried both items the same night, so this post could be considered as a first impression kinda thingy. As of this writing I've been using the products for 2 days hahahahahha.

Ok Belles, writing halfway when I realized that this post will be long and who wants to read a super long post right. Anyways decided to split this post up, for the kinda first impressions please click the name of the product and if I remember I will put another link below the post.

Disclaimer....please please excuse my face hahahahah had a bad sunburned a couple of weeks back :-(

So let's start...

MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser

This is a breakthrough face cleanser that bubbles up by itself when exposed to air, and gently whisks away makeup and skin impurities without any hand rubbing. It contains ingredients to reduce acne, and increase hydration and softness. Soap-free and rich in amino acids, this cleanser is so gentle that it will not strip the skin of its essential moisture.


The packaging...



It did came with a leaflet where it explains about the product


Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner

This toner soothes and softens the skin while flushes out the pores and helps to minimizes their appearance. It is a pure toner which is easily absorbed into the skin and naturally and smells groovy too. It also contains a natural protective layer to lock in moisture, repairs dull and ageing skin, making it feel moisturized and protected.


and the pretty packaging


Usually when Sample Store sends in samples of the product that I need to review after paying for the shipping fee, it comes in a sample size but these 2 products from Beauty Keeper are full sizes. So guess how long that it will last, I will definitely update the reviews on a weekly basis until I finish these products.

BTW, I did go to the Beauty Keeper website to find out more info about the products, as of writting I could only find the Aurelia Aurita QQseries Moisture Jelly Toner. I am not sure why I can't the MD/AA Jiao Pulsed Mask Foaming Face Cleanser. 

Ok now I need to move on to reviewing the products, here are the links if your interested
