Well, I’ve written the ingredients list from the sachet info. U can judge by urself I guess. Fragrance and preservatives, yes, I’m not the fan of those. Even it’s paraben and phenoxyethanol free (well I did not see both of them in the list), this still contains 1,2- HEXANEDIOL as 13th in the list.

It’s free from 5 harsh ingredients such as : mineral oil, paraben, benzophenone, artificial colorant, and animal origin ingredients. Sounds good eh..

This is the sachet I owned
Sorry the sample sachet picture is already torn
(U can click for zooming)

I got this sample as freebie when I purchased The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Moisture Toner. The Face Shop official counter in here (Surabaya) is considered generous in giving free sample compared to other Korean counter such as Etude and Skinfood. I never received any sample when I shopped at Etude and Skinfood official counter.

The texture is white lotion. It’s hydrating but not overly rich. But I doubt that it will be suitable for oily skin coz little too moist I guess. I my self have oily combination skin and this one is still okay for me. But I only used it at night coz I’m afraid it’ll be greasy for day application.
It gives my skin hydration. I woke up and my skin felt hydrated in the morning after using this product at night. 

The texture is still considered lightweight, but it takes little time to absorb into my skin.
A note for this product. This may not for u whose skin is on sensitive or acne prone mode. I have tried to use it when my skin at sensitive mode and I felt bit stinging on some parts of my face and also bit redness.

For me, one sachet is enough for 4- 5 times usage. In my case a little is enough for my entire face.
This product is fragranced. Well, the smell is quite noticeable I guess. Even it’s kinda refreshing one but I don’t like perfumed skincare.

Skin Benefit :
- Give my skin hydration
- feels refreshing

Buy the full version? No. I don’t think that this really suits my skin. I need something that can clear up my skin complexion, I did not find it in this product. I also did not like fragranced skincare.

If U here, leave comments please, let me know what’s ur opinion^^
Thank U for reading my review
