Label Young – Shocking Mist (Skin & Essence; Lotion & Cream) 2in1 Multi Skin Care

image

As you know I have been posting my reviews for Label Young products and indeed I have received high hit rates from my review on their Shocking series (check out my archives!). Most of the searches are made from Vietnam, Thailand and I am grateful for readers from south east asia! Thank you!!

Alright, back to this post on Label Young Shocking Mist 1 and 2.

I have been trying out this product in the day and night for about 2 weeks now,so I think it should be a reasonable point to share what I think of this product.

About the Product
Will update this section when I manage to find out what it contains.

Using the Product
The suggested method is to spray Step 1 on the face (ie the Toner), pat in the product before spraying on Step 2 (ie the “Cream”). What I did was to spray Step 1 onto the palm of my hand before patting the product on my face for absorption. Then I will spray Step 2 onto my hand, spread it between two palms to lightly “warm” the product before i pat the product onto my skin.

The Toner looks gel-ish in the bottle but it liquidfies when it was sprayed and it was liquid once in contact with my hand. The Cream looks like a cream gel in the bottle but when it is sprayed onto my hand, its texture feels like a watery mousse. Now here’s what I find rather interesting: as you know Singapore climate has high humidity and its tropical weather all year round. I notice that unlike some of the products that I have tried previously, my perspiration seem to emerge ON TOP of the skin. Perspiration did not seem to melt the cream or push it off my face. Its as if the cream is water proof! 😁

When I apply my bareminerals foundation over my skin, the cream seems to behave like a primer and held my foundation better (of course it cannot compare with my favourite Laura Mercier primer). Even after moving around for an hour out in the hot tropical weather in Singapore, about 70% of my foundation remained in place. This is completely different from if I had used some other products where my foundation would have ran and left patches on my face.

Will I buy this again? Well the product didn’t break me out and it did seem to have the right texture for my skin. I feel rather refreshed using this product and it also seem to give decent level of hydration for my skin especially when I work in air conditioned environment most of the time. So YES! I will include this product on my repurchase list.

Where to Buy the Product
Koreadepart (EN) is my go-to place. Qoo10 is another online spot that I will grab this product. Else, check out Label Young official website!

Label Young – Shocking Serum Ampoule

Labelyoung Shocking Serum Ampoule.jpgThis is part of my Janaury 2015 Haul from Koreadepart. My Sonyu Cream is half pot by now and I thought I should start the next bottle from my latest Label Young Haul.

About the Product

From Koreadepart and Qoo10, the main ingredients are the black seed complex (black bean, black rice, black sesame) and includes base that was formed through crock fermentation process (bean fermentation extract, rice fermentation filtrate extract, green grain fermentation filtrate extract). Black beans include a lot of good ingredients, including cellulose and vitamin E to prevent spots; and anthocyanin to increase skin’s resistence and provide elasticity and vitality. Black Rice contains Anthocyanin and provides good nutrition to the skin.  Black Sesame is known as Longevity Food in China. It contains Vitamin B, Vegetable Fat to reduce dryness. Other ingredients in this product includes Argan Kernel Oil, Olive oil and Jojoba Seed Oil; as well as Galactomyces and BP.  Collectively, this all-in-one Essence + Serum + Ampoule product is supposed to deliver whitening, brightening, anti-wrinkle, tighten pores, elasticity and hydration to the skin. From the website, it does not contain Talc, Ethanol, Benzyl Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Imidazolidinylurea, Carbomer artificial pigment, Triethanolamine, Methylisothiazolinone, Petrolatum, Triclosan and Mineral Oil. The colour of the product is natural.

Using the Product

The website recommends that after normal skincare, apply proper amount on the skin (including under the eye) and then gently use the fingers to lift the skin upwards. Tap lightly thereafter to help with absorption.  I have used the product right after toning. I did not apply additional moisturizer before this product coz I felt that the product is sufficient for me in humid Singapore. My skin will still produce oil in the next 2-3 hours as per normal. I am still unsure if I will buy this item again coz I do not see visible improvement after using it for 1 week. But one thing for sure it didn’t break me out.

Where to Buy the Product

From the usual places – Koreadepart and Labelyoung.com. Some vendors on Qoo10 SG carries it as well.

Label Young – Shocking Cleansing (5-in-1 Perfect Care)

wpid-20150118_163108.jpg The Label Young Shocking Cleansing is a 5-in-1 skin cleansing “gel” that can be used all over the body. It is light and appears to have a light scent.

About the Product

According to my favourite korean online shop, Koreadepart, this product is good for face washing (including make up removal), shampoo, body wash, hand and food wash. It contains lemon oil, coconut oil, olive oil green tea extract, honey, propolis extract, shea butter, aloe vera and menthol.  The plus of this product is to maintain moisture after washing.  Accordingly, as with many of Label Young skin care products, it does not contain 16 additives namely, parabens, ethanol, carborner, mineral oil, phenoxyethanol, triethanolamine, triclosan, paraffins PEG-based, sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sufate, BH Oh, benzyl alcohol, imidazolidinyl urea, petrolatum, and chlorobutanol.

Using the Product

I have used this product for facial cleansing and found that it is relatively mild, and tends to leave a thin film on your skin after rinsing. Not sure if this has to do with the moisture retention but this feeling reminds me very much of how it feels after using Dove shower cream. I didn’t experience outbreak, and I didn’t find the product particularly hydrating, and I am doubtful that I can use this for removing makeup, perhaps more for second cleanse. Another observation is that this product does not foam up as much as my usual Perfect Whip Foam, so those of you who are foam lovers like me, will find that this is rather ‘flat’.

To be honest, I am not totally impressed by this multi-use cleanser. I still prefer my current cleansing products that gives me a squeaky clean feel. Those of you who prefer something milder, I think this is still worth considering.

Where to Buy the Product

For those of you who would like to try out this product, Koreadepart and Label Young websites are the places to go do. Qoo10 is also a possible place to find (though I did not find many suppliers who carry this item).

For those of you who’d used this product, do share with me your experience by posting your comment below!

Label Young – Shocking Cream Pore Ver. (aka Panku Cream)

image
Shocking Cream Pore Version

The Label Young Shocking Pore Cream is the other Label Young Pore series product that I have yet to review. This Shocking Pore Cream is to be used together with the Panku Skin and Lotion, which aims to tighten and hydrate the pores as well as deliver whitening and anti-aging effects.

About the Product
The Label Young Shocking Pore Cream reminds me of thick clear gel. The purpose of this cream was to tighten and even up the pores, as in the case of using a primer to “flatten” the gaps created by the open pores so that the skin looks smooth and glowing.  It also works well in hydrating the skin. Compared to the Shocking Skin and Lotion, the Shocking Pore Cream seems to do better at hydration, if I need to choose the most effective of the two.

From the Koreadepart website, the the Shocking Pore Cream’s main ingredients are Bentonite (containing more than 60 kinds of natural minerals, kaolin, ECOCERT organic ingredients, soybean fermentation extract. This product is also, from Koreadepart, recommended for those with big pores or pores with blackheads.  I didnt find significant changes to my pores but the hydration seems to be the more satisfying outcome.

Using the Product
It was recommended that one applies the Shocking Pore Cream right after the Panku Skin and Lotion, or to chill the gel in the fridge before applying on the face as a mask. I have been reminded about my pores clogging easily so did not try to use the Shocking Pore Cream as a mask (seals up the pores). However I did use it like a cream that enhance the hydration of the Panku Skin and Lotion. I only use a small pea size at a time and warm it in my hand before I spread it on my face.

After using the Label young Pore Series for almost a month, I like the Panku Skin and Lotion, but find that it is not moisturizing enough when I am in an airconditioned or low humidity environment. The Shocking Pore Cream helps to improve hydration by acting as an additional layer to seal in moisture. No outbreaks so far.

Where to Buy the Product
As with all the Label young Products, you can purchase the Shocking Pore Cream via:

1) Koreadepart
2) Qoo10
3) Label Young Official Website

Label Young – Shocking Oil

Label Young Shocking Oil
Oil that does not feel like oil

My Label Young Shocking Oil only has a third of the bottle left so I think I should provide my review on this product to those of you who are still thinking whether to grab this product or not.

About the Product
The uniqueness of the Label Young Shocking Oil is that this product does not feel like the oils you see in the market. Yup you heard me! It does not feel like oil but more like dense gel that becomes watery when it comes into contact with your hands. However, it delivers similar levels of moisture just as how other oils would. The product is light yellow clear liquid with tiny red, blue and yellow beads that breaks open to deliver vitamin A (moisture and nutrients), vitamin C (tighten pores and increase pore resilience) and vitamin E (keratin and ringworm CARE) respectively. Its always a surprise what colour beads are discharged from the bottle each time I pour out the contents from the bottle.

According to the product publicity, the product can be used to moisturize your hair ends, and to moisturize dry patches of skin on the body, and mixed with your bb creams to create a dewy effect.

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, 1.2 Hexanediol, Sodium Hyaluronatte, Beta-glucan, Lemon Oil, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Argan Oil, Avocado Oil, Magnolia Liliflora Bud Extract, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Lactose, Cellulose, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Jojobar Ester, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Carbomer, Spice, Disodium EDTA (source: Q-trading @ Qoo10)

Free from 20 Additives : Parabens, Ethanol, Benzophenone, Steroids, Artificial Colours, Alcohol, Phenoxyethanol, Sulphate, Acid Sikrik Saline, Triclosan, Benzyl Alcohol, DM Hydantoin, Methyl Isobutyl non Jolly Teeth, Mineral Oil, Quaternium-15, Phenyl Salicylate, Dia Jolie Attend Urea, Inorganic Sulfate, Chlorobutanol, Propionic Acid. (Source: Koreadepart)

How to Use the Product
I have combination skin that is oily inside but mildly dry on the surface. I have also mentioned in my earlier post that I am a proponent for use of facial oils.

With Label Young Shocking Oil, I usually pour a bean size (size of 10c coin, or abt 1cm in diameter), spread it between my palms to break the beads and to warm before I apply it directly on my skin with light massaging strokes. The skin does not feel sticky after application, and I also did not experience any outbreaks after a few days of use.  There will be days when I get a little lazy and decide to apply the oil directly on my face instead of applying it after toner. Both methods worked for me. On using the product with other toners, I have used Albion Skin Conditioner in place of Label Young Shocking Toner with no side effects or outbreaks. Overall, I continue to receive the hydration from this product for 3 to 4 hours in humid environment. However, if you are working in dry, low humidity or airconditioned environment, I would recommend to follow on with one of the Label Young Shocking Creams or a light hydrating moisturizer for added layer of hydration.

I have not tried this on my hair ends but I did try to use it to hydrate dry patches on my body. No irritations experience. I must say this is quite a good product if you need a quick surge of moisture, especially on days where you feel the skin is dry or flaky.

According to the sites selling this product, you can mix the Label Young Shocking Oil with your BB Creams to create a dewy effect.

Where to Buy the Product
In my earlier posts, I have recommended a few places where you can purchase this product – online. They are:

1) Koreadepart – this online shop carries multiple brands of korean skin care products. I have had a recent Label Young haul from here.

2) Qoo10 – Search for “label young” or “labelyoung” and you should find a few vendors carrying their product range. This is not a new product so it should not be difficult to find it on Qoo10.

3) Label Young Official Online Shop (Korean) – If you can understand Korean, this is the site for you regardless of where you are. They have the most up to date Label Young product ranges on this site.

Have you tried this product? If so, do share with me what you think of this oil! 🙂

Update: Label Young has recently released Shocking Oil ver 2. I would love to try and give my review after I have gone through my recent Label Young Haul from Koreadepart! 😉

Label Young – Panku Skin & Lotion, aka 2 in 1 Special Pore Care (Shocking Skin & Lotion)

wpid-20141228_221825.jpgI am so excited that many of you out there have been reading up on my blog post for Label Young product. I wish to thank you all for the support and it is your support that encouraged me to go on to try its other Label Young products – which by far, is one of the most economical (and paraben free) skincare product that I’ve used yet does not give me outbreaks or other skin care problems.

Alright, I won’t keep the suspense any longer. I present to you my review on the Label Young Panku Skin & Lotion, also known as 2 in 1 Special Pore Care (Shocking Skin and Lotion)!

About the Product

This product claims to be an all-in-one product that “Soothes skin gently and provide rich moisture and nutrition.” It aims to “treat pores from inner skin without the use of ethanol”. The “rich moisture and nutrition refreshes the skin by providing it with a glow” and it “controls oil from the sebum and shields the skin from impurities and dust. Its moisture shield also enables better moisture absorption. (Disclaimer: the above description is paraphrased from Koreandepart website where product description could have been translated directly from its original korean description) Now, we need to be clear that the word “tighten” is relative and depends on the size condition of one’s pores and yes, this product’s key ingredients are “bentonite (containing more than 60 kinds of natural minerals), kaolin, ECOCERT organic ingredients, blueberry extract, lemon extract and lime”. The koreandepart website wrote that this product does not contain the following additives, namely: Parabens, ethanol, mineral oil, triclosan, phenoxyethanol, benzyl alcohol, artificial colours, triethanolamine, petrolatum, imidazolidinyl urea.

However, I discovered that this product has dimenthicon that usually gives a relatively smooth feel after you apply on your skin. I have mentioned previously that products with dimenthicon did not work well for me. Now why did I went ahead to try this? Its you, my readers! Nothing gained without trying, right? 😉

This product has a very soft and somewhat flora / citrus scent (oh, and I so love it), and is dispensed in the form of emulsion (i.e. slightly dense white milk in a simple bottle – see picture on the right). My feedback for Label Young is perhaps, a squeezable bottle can be used because it is indeed quite challenging to get the product out given its texture. A pump could also have done the job.

Based on the instructions on used of this product, it said that this lotion can be used on its own without its accompanying gel cream from the same product family (and yes! I am going to blog about it when I use it for a while longer)

Using this Product

I have been using this product for about 2 weeks now. I didn’t break out after using it and I find the scent rather refreshing and welcoming. I have combination skin which is oily under the skin and dry on the surface. After using this product for the period, the oil does seem to surface later and lesser then it normally would but it won’t be as effective if you are having one of those days where your face just produce a lot of oil due to hormones etc.

After washing my face, I will use just a 10cent size (about 10mm in diameter for a dollup) and warm it in my palm before applying / spreading with both hands on my face. I will try to pat lightly using the warm palms to help with absorption into my skin. This is only if I am going to be out and about in the humid tropical weather. When I am at work (air-conditioned) or at night, I will layer on (thinly) the Panku Gel Cream on my face to increase the hydration. Note: I did not need to apply additional toner before I use this Lotion.

After using the the product, I feel that my skin (esp on my cheeks) are very smooth. I did have some whiteheads popping out since I’ve started using it (this could be due to hydration that plumps up the inner walls of the pores and forces the loose whiteheads out). I can’t really attest much about the pore size as my large pores have been there for a long time.

Where to Buy this Product

As mentioned in my previous blog post, this product is not sold over the counters in Myeong Dong or in Singapore. I had to scour the internet to look for the vendors who bring in the products. Couple of places you can get hold of this product:

1) Qoo10 – search for “label young” and the website should cough up a few vendors that carry the brand.

2) Koreadepart – Oh yes, this is a good place to get your label young products. They do have discounts from time to time and I recently bought some of the other label young products at below USD10 each. However, do not that international shipping is only free if you chock up USD200 worth of purchases. This site does carry a lot of other popular Korean brands, so plan your purchases!

3) Label Young website – I had provided this link in my earlier Label Young product post, and I did notice that it had received a number of clicks. As mentioned previously, this site is in Korean and it could only be shipping within Korea. Best to get your native korean friends to help you with the orders. 🙂

So are you ready to share with me your experiences with the Label Young products?
