SHOO SHOO, BOREDOM
For those of you who do not know, I am from Malaysia and Malaysia is currently under a Movement Control Order (MCO) due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I have been lazing at, I mean working from home for almost three weeks now and haven’t left home since the MCO started. If you are like me, and you are looking for something to ease the boredom, why not take a look at this new essence from By Wishtrend that I just recently discovered?
It has always been my number one goal to look for a good skincare product that can multitask and actually works on my sensitive skin. So when I hear that this Quad Active Boosting Essence contains some amazing active ingredients that have anti-inflammatory, anti-pollution and anti-bacterial effects, I have immediately decided to give it a try. Won’t want to miss the chance of finding a great multitasker, will I?
Just like its name, this By Wishtrend Quad Active Boosting Essence contains four different active ingredients that are very beneficial to the skin:
To be honest, the first thing about this Quad Active Boosting Essence that I noticed was not its ingredient list but its elegant bottle design. Topped with a golden cap, its yellow transparent bottle had at first led me to think that the essence is yellow in colour. In fact, the essence is colourless and has no smell at all (or at least I can’t detect any haha). If you take note of its ingredient list, you can see that it does not contain any fragrance which explains why (and is wonderful)!
Thanks to its watery texture, the essence can also be used as a toner. In the morning when I am rushing for time, I will skip the toner step and use this directly as it actually absorbs much faster than my toner and is more lightweight than my other essence. At night, I will follow the recommended steps by putting on my toner first before I follow up with the boosting essence.
What I like most about this essence is that it is not oily or sticky at all after it has been fully absorbed by the skin. We all know how it uncomfortable it can get when a product dries down to a sticky or oily finish! Because of that, you can also layer this boosting essence and use it as a serum too without having to worry that it will suffocate the skin. *Winks*
Despite containing 10% of BHA, it never tingles when I use it. To test it out, I even put a little on the tiny wound on my finger and I felt nothing at all! So if this is the first time you try incorporating acid in your skincare regime or even if you have just popped a pimple, you can still use it without worrying that it might sting. I guess that has to do with its soothing ingredients, eh?
Thanks to this, my skin texture is a little smoother now and my skin looks like it’s very well-moisturised. If you ask me, I think this Quad Active Boosting Essence is definitely worth a try. Besides, just looking at the ingredient list would be enough to get anyone to jump on board, not to mention its beautiful packaging that would definitely brighten up your vanity table!
