For Beloved One Extreme Hydration [Review]

Taiwan's top selling skincare Brand For Beloved One, recently launched a new range of products for Dry and Sensitive skin "Extreme Hydration" in Sephora Singapore.

Everyone no matters what skintype we are.....  we all NEED moisturizing products. Because, our dermis contains 80% of water. The water normally decreases in subcutaneous layer, and it can even be as low as only 15% of water left. Therefore, moisturizer your skin is something you shall never neglect!
This is also the reason why I love moisturizing/hydrating products... because when your skin is hydrated, it solved about 80% of skin problems! Pores, oilyness, sagging, radiance and ects...
So I'm always open to try all types and brands of hydrating products ^_^

Here my thoughts on the toner::
Have been using this for about 6weeks... and I use a cotton pad with this toner
  • Toner feel very watery
  • Not sticky nor oily
  • Very refreshing and soothing on the skin
  • Doesn't cause any break-out
  • No skin irritation
  • The toner doesn't feel too harsh nor drying on the skin
  • Skin feel supple and moist after patting the cotton pad(soak up with this toner) all over my face.
    (I have combination dry skin now.. so harsh/strong toner tend to sting my face abit)
I have no complains with this toner.. So mild that I can lightly run the cotton pad over my eye lids and doesn't cause any irritation. Toner work really well with their serum and moisturizer. (I tried it with other moisturizer and it work pretty good too).

My thoughts on the For Beloved One Extreme Hydration Moisture Surge Cream
Although this look like a gel cream but it doesn't feel like a gel nor cream at all! It feel more like a very lightweight non greasy mousse!!! Once I spread this on my face(skin).. it melts into liquid form (watery) and it absorbed into the skin very well and fast. (Super love the texture of this cream)
  • Very moist mousse like texture
  • non sticky nor oily
  • Skin doesn't look oily or anything after applying the cream
    (it look like I just pat dry my face after cleansing) Good for those who don't like to feel anything on the face
  • Hydrating level was pretty decent... but if you have dry and tight skin, it's best to use the serum before the moisturizer as it boost up the hydrating level.  (I tried it both way and I prefer the extra step of using the serum)
  • Doesn't cause any skin irritation
  • No breaking-out
  • Skin feel smooth and soft. It last till the next day
  • Skin doesn't feel too drying the next day
    (however, if I use the moisturizer without the serum.. it will feel abit dry/tight around my chin)
  • This cream made skin feel supple and smooth
A simple skincare products that keep skin refresh and hydrated. 
With hydrated skin, skin look dewy, radiance and feel supple.
For me, normally I finished up a jar/tube of moisturizer in about 4-6weeks (depending on the size). And I always changed my skincares products. (normally I stick to hydrating/anti aging/collagen ranges - because I know my skin won't get irritated easily with hydrating products)
For Beloved One is available in Sephora Singapore
