Review: Za-Cosmetics Perfect Solution Line (Toner and Moisturizer)

I have tried several skincare products from different brands but I always go back to the skincare products of Za-Cosmetics. Their product lines do not come with a hefty price tag as compared to high-end brands. Nevertheless, their products are really effective on taking care of my skin. I have previously shared with you my reviews on the Za-Cosmetics Total Hydration Bundle. For today, I will share with you why I am so loving their Za-Cosmetics Perfect Solution line.

What is so special about this line? It has the INTENSIVE TRIANGLE TECHNOLOGY which is the key for having a youthful and glowing skin. For more information, here is a description of the Perfect Solution line (printed on the box of the products):

Here are the products included in the Za-Cosmetics Perfect Solution line that I am currently using:

  • Za-Cosmetics Perfect Solution Cleansing Foam
  • Za-Cosmetics Perfect Solution Toner
  • Za-Cosmetics Perfect Solution Moisturizer

Review: Za-Cosmetics Total Hydration Fresh Lucent Toner

Caring for your skin is very important. You might not follow a very demanding routine but at least you need to get to incorporate the three basic steps of skincare:

  2. TONE

Why is it important to use a skin toner? It serves as your last line of defense against dirt and other impurities and your light step to moisturizing your skin making it ready for the skin treatments you would need to use. The makeup remover and facial cleanser you use may be good in removing all the dirt in your skin but there are instances that they still leave slight traces of makeup and your toner would do the job in removing them. Also, a toner hydrates your skin since double cleansing (the use of makeup remover and cleanser) might strip away the moisture in your skin.

I have already shared with you in my previous posts what products I am currently using for the “CLEANSE” and “MOISTURIZE” steps. I am using the Etude House Happy Essential Foam Vitamin C as my cleanser and the Nivea Baby Smoothy Cream as my moisturizer. What’s missing? The “TONE” step, of course. For that step, I would like to introduce to you my Za-Cosmetics Total Hydration Fresh Lucent Toner.

Product Description (printed on the packaging of the product):

This skin lotion hydrates skin to impart a look of clarified radiance.
Light and refreshing texture
For skin that tends to feel sticky

Product Description (taken from the Za-Cosmetics website):

Instantly hydrates skin to impart a look of healthy radiance and a vibrant glow.

Makeup and Skincare Purchases: Nivea, Za-Cosmetics, PAC and Majolica Majorca plus Freebies plus Makeup Hand-me-down from my Mom

Hi! I have another post of my new purchases for today. However, this post will not be just about my recent purchases. As you read in the title of this post, I also have freebies and makeup hand-me-down from my mom. Let’s start! 😀

First part: My Makeup and Skincare Purchases

nivea, za-cosmetics, majolica majorca and pac products

Beauty bloggers say that before putting on makeup, you should moisturize. This is a very important step that up to now, I am not yet putting into practice. Eeek! Sorry… Haha! 😛 So, I finally bought a moisturizer. For Nivea, I got the Smoothy Cream from their Nivea Baby skincare line.

I am lucky that I got the last stock when I tried to look for this at the baby section in SM Makati. The sales assistant told me that this is a really good product and that this is their bestseller for the Nivea brand. Well, I guess that’s true because based on what I read from other beauty blogs, they also have a hard time looking for this. It is always out of stock. By the way, you might be thinking why this is included in my post. It is a product for babies. Yes, it is! However, I read from several beauty blogs that this is an affordable yet an effective moisturizer. So, I got this one for now. 😀

For Za-Cosmetics, I got the True White Plus Liquid FoundationTotal Hydration Fresh Lucent Toner and Deep Cleansing Oil. I have been planning to get a liquid foundation for a month now. Finally, I got one. Yey! For the toner, it is another add-up into my skincare routine since cleansetone and moisturize are the basic steps for a clean and clear skin. So now, I think I’m on the right track. 😀 For the cleansing oil, yes, another makeup remover. Let’s see if this is a good one.
