"A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, a woman cannot live without skin care product."

How flowers inspire Mamonde?
The flower a sign of beauty and a symbol of grace is also magical with its ability to speak to the soul in a way which words cannot express. The blossoming flower, its colour and pleasant scent emits a natural inherent vitality and surging energy that lifts the mood and comforts the heart. But there's much more to this extraordinary plant.

Amore Pacific Research Institute discovered the close relation between flowers and a women's beauty. Advanced research was then carried out on various flowers from the root to its stem and petals to discover the amazing power and energy that the flowers possess.
Finding reveal that flowers contain moisturising and skin nourishing ingredients that not only provide nourishment to the skin but also moisture and balance oil production to maintain a vibrant skin.
Years of research concluded with the inception of a unique innovation and formulation that use floral extraction to re-invent beauty. Amore Pacific named its innovation Mamonde, a brand that inspired feminine beauty with flowers through its flower science technology. 

Mamonde brings women's beauty into a bloom by instilling the wisdom of nature found in the flowers' vitality into their products. It aspires to provide skincare solutions for every women so that they may radiate in blossoming beauty.

Mamonde's products are formulates with various types of flowers;
  • Vitalizing
    The Honeysuckle and the Evening Primrose both have amazing vitalizing properties that help maintain healthy skin. The Honeysuckle is an absorbent plant with its ability to absorb nutrition from barren soil to deliver nutrients fast to vital parts of its plant. Similarly for the skin, the Honeysuckle delivers nutrients found in the flower to the skin for a smoother and firmer skin that is vitalized from within. Another floral plant with amazing vitalizing property is the Evening Primrose. It contains high concentration of fatty acid and other nutrients that is essential to improve cell structure and skin elasticity.

  • Moisturing & Hydrating
    Mamonde uses Demask Rose (Rose Water), Hibicus, Narcissus and Peach Blossoms in its hydrating and moisturising range. 
    The Rose water is extracted with super-high pressure to preserve its amazing properties of soothing and moisturising the skin. The Hibiscus, Narcissus and Peach Blossom on the other hand, contain natural hydrators and ceramide that offers flawless hydration. The Narcissus offers excellent moisturising benefits of up to 24 hours.

  • Anti-aging
    The Camelia is a resilient plant that thrives in a wide range of weather conditions even through winter. Its resilient 
    and other therapeutic properties help protect the skin from free radical damage and reduce the signs of aging for a youthful-lookling skin.

  • Cleansing & Exfoliation
    The Lotus Flower has the ability to cleanse and purify while providing antioxidant protection. It contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids that help exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, allowing younger cells to rise to the surface of the skin to restore a youthful look.

  • Brightening
    The Magnolia, an ancient type of flower which has been around for more than 100 million years, has numerous medicinal values. 
    It also has an excellent effect in skin whitening and post-inflammatory pigmentation inhibition. The Water Lily is another plant with amazing benefits to the skin which include brightening the complexion as well as soothing irritated skin.

  • Pore Care & Oil Balancing
    The Heartleaf Houttuynia and Sage are prefect for regulating sebum production and especially for the oily skin. 
    Extracts of the Heartleaf Hottuynia also helps tighten the pores that have enlarged and that have lost resilience. It offers instant contraction and it is also cooling to the skin.

Mamonde's makeup series 

With K-beauty that is trending now, we have been introduced to so many products in our skincare regime that are supposed to work hand in hand to deliver the best results for the skin. However, there are times when these products are not easily absorbed due to our skin conditions and other factors. Therefore, a booster comes in handy in times like these. Introducing Mamonde’s newly upgraded First Energy Essence and First Energy Serum - where it acts primarily as a booster to uplift your skin, giving you an overall healthier and suppler looking appearance.

Formulated with the Floral Biotics Technology, both the Mamonde First Energy Essence and First Energy Serum have recently been upgraded with the antioxidant Lactobacillus that is extracted from the Honeysuckle flowers. The Lactobacillus is blended together with the 1-year-old fermented “Flower Vinegar” to provide the skin with greater synergy effect, thus enhancing anti-oxidative activities beneath the skin. Besides that, the plant-derived Lactobacillus also helps to promote skin’s immunity, leaving your skin less susceptible and more resilient to external aggression.

Mamonde’s First Energy Essence and First Energy Serum should be used as the first-step in your skincare regime after cleanser and skin softener. Both the essence and serum contain Honeysuckle’s “Flower Vinegar” Complex which ensures optimal skincare results and are therefore essential to obtain beautiful radiant skin. Mamonde’s First Energy Essence (150ml) is a water type booster that gives you a refreshing feel upon application on the skin and is suitable for users with combination to oily skin while the First Energy Serum (100ml) is an emulsion type booster that provides nourishing and soothing effect to those with dry skin.

Both the products retail at RM119 each and can be purchased at Mamonde’s first Beauty Counter in AEON Bandar Utama.

I am glad to have Mamonde and excited that Mamonde will be launching their first outlet at 1Utama Shopping, Bandar Utama soon. Can't wait to welcome them and test their products right now. To know more about Mamonde, please visit their website here.

Thank you <3

Hello my followers, have you heard about probiotic skin care products? 
Wondering what is probiotics? Interesting? Curious? Let me to tell you more about it. 
Well, probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially to your digestive system. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes diseases. But our body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotic are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. For example Yakult, same goes to probiotics skin care product.
Rane Chin and me
First of all, I would like to thank Esse Organic Skincare for inviting me to their launching at Ashey's restaurant, Bangsar and congratulations to them on the First Probiotics Skin Care in the world.
Esse Organic Skincare has produced certified organic products for the salon and spa industry for the last 10 years and the range is now exported to more than 20 countries around the world.
Esse has evolved rapidly over the last few years to keep pace with scientific advances in the way that skin is understood.

The discoveries of the Human Micro-biome Project have revolutionised Esse’s views on skincare. The Project found that there are 10 microbes for every human cell in the human body, and as a result we have reconceptualised the skin as an ecosystem that is at its healthiest when resident microbial populations are robust and diverse.
The majority of skin disorders can now be linked to disruptions in the skin microbiome and accelerated ageing is no exception.
Esse has explored new ways to optimise the health of the skin microbiome to reduce the rate at which your skin ages.
Esse uses a multi-dimensional approach to optimise the microbiome on the skin. This includes pH, preservation, essential fatty acid balance, and the use of the purest certified organic ingredients. With strong basics in place, the formulations are suitable for the true microbiome game changers: the pre and probiotics.

In the new Esse Plus line, prebiotics are used to selectively feed beneficial microbes at the expense of potentially pathogenic ones. This gives you a diverse and stable skin microbiome that results in improved barrier function and moisture retention.
Live probiotics and probiotic extracts actively shape the microbial populations in and on the skin. This optimises skin health and slows the ageing process, resulting in firmer, fuller skin and a strong anti-wrinkle effect.

Every few decades, a scientific discovery is made that changes the way that we see ourselves and the world around us. The latest discoveries made by the Human Microbiome Project have remodeled Esse’s approach to skincare.
Our new Probiotic Serum is the first skincare product in the world to contain live probiotic microbes - 50 million live probiotics per drop and 1 billion per ml. As the Serum touches your face, live probiotic microbes are activated by the moisture on your skin, complementing your natural microbial diversity and creating the ideal microbiome to slow the ageing process.
Esse Probiotics Serum is the first product in skincare that is genuinely alive. This product contains one billion live probiotics microbes per milliliter and there isn't another brand in the world that can match this claim.
The advance is genetic sequencing over the last 10 years have allowed scientists to distinguish human DNA from that of other organisms. This has led to the finding that there are 10 microbes for every human cell in your body. 

Optimum skin health is dependent on the presence of trillions of microbes living on, and in, your skin. Esse has developed products that maintain an optimal balance of microbes to slow the ageing process. We aim to create an environment on the skin that favours the growth of beneficial microbes so that they can out-compete pro-ageing species.
To do this, we use probiotics to selectively feed good microbes, and have broken new ground with this serum by including probiotic microbes that actively change the microbial populations on the skin.
Esse Probiotic Serum contains more than one billion live probiotic microbes per milliliter. We have identified a spectrum of probiotic species that are integral to skin health and incorporated them into this revolutionary formulation.
The probiotic microbes are activated on application by contact with water on the skin. Once active, they equip the skin to rectify imbalances and strengthen barrier function for a firmer, more resilient, and radiant skin.
Academic research shows that live topically-applied probiotics have demonstrated efficacy in treating acne, eczema, and even extreme burn victims, and new studies are published almost every week.
This serum is suitable for all skin types and by creating biological equilibrium, it is effective for skin showing any form of stress.
Esse is not the first company to claim the use of probiotics in skincare but other claims revolve around the inclusion of extracts of bacterial cultures. This product is the first to use live probiotics that actively colonise and re-shape microbial populations on the skin.
Your skin is an ecosystem … a mix of human cells and microbes in delicate balance. Ecosystems respond poorly to chemical pollution. Esse Probiotic Serum is 100% natural with more than 90% certified organic ingredients. It contains no chemical residues.
