Today I would like to share with all this skincare kit I took with me when I went on holiday.
It’s Mamonde skin care sample kit.
I have never used any Mamonde products so when I saw this kit, I definitely had to get it. Mamonde is a Korean brand which is pretty affordable and more aimed for people in their 20’s and older.
Perfect for my age range
This sample kit contains 3 products and is normally a freebie but you can still buy it on Ebay for around 5USD.
This contains a cleansing foam, first essence and a toner.
This is definitely the perfect size to try out the products for at least 2 weeks straight, and it’s the perfect travel size.
I also like that each product comes in a vibrant colour so you’ll recognize each one.
The first essence
The first energy essence is honeysuckle really smells of honey, but it’s not sweet and I really like it.
This is watery essence and it’s quickly absorbed by the skin.
I really do feel that this helps the skin get ready for the next step. As it’s absorbed quickly, my skin was not sticky and felt soft and matte.
I think you could even be very liberal with this first essence and your skin would still not be sticky. Once applied the scent of honey disappears.
This toner is made of rose water and when you open it, the smell of roses will definitely hit you. But again it’s not overbearing at all.
I did not see or feel anything special with this toner, except the scent. I honestly skipped this one a lot, but when I used it my skin felt nice. I used this on a cotton pad and it removed additional sebum and other dirt remaining.
This is a watery toner, you could apply it with your hands and dab it on or on a cotton pad.
The cleansing foam
This was the product I most wanted to try. I read so many people loving this and Mr “papua new guinea”, a.k.a. Go Gyung Pyo, was in the ad ☺ so this must be good.
This cleansing foam comes in a creamy consistency and again smells wonderfully fresh.
Let me say I loved this one. It felt soft on the skin and did not dry me out, not even the corners of my mouth.
The foam made tiny bubble which was very fine and lathered quite easily, and there was also no pulling effect.
I’m really happy I brought this kit with me in San Fran.
The first essence and cleansing foam will be going on my “to buy full size” list, once I’m done with my products I have on stand by.
For the toner, it’s ok but still a pretty good product.
Thanks to this kit, I discovered Mamonde like scented products but they do it right so I’m not complaining.
Mamonde has really nice products so I keep my eye on this brand as I really liked using these.
Have you tried Mamonde, do you have any recommendation? Do let me know.
See you soon!
