Mamonde Rose Water Soothing Gel

Annyeong Haseyo 🙋
Hey guys, been away for a while. I’m back to do a review about this moisturizer gel from Korean brand called Mamonde (* mamongdeu ;))

I bought this from my friend around October last year. It cost me around 10 dollars for 300ml.
The concept is similar with the Aloe Vera Gel or Snail Gel version from other brands.

Pink rose, I was gonna say the meaning of it, but unfortunately I don’t know, hahaha. I only know Red Rose for love, Yellow Rose for friendship (correct me if I’m wrong).

The packaging is made of plastic but it’s quite sturdy, without inner lid.
I think it’s also multi purpose gel, I’m not really sure since it’s all written in Korean (I can read Hangul but I don’t speak Korean).

It has rose scent, not too strong and not too soft.
Texture, not too thick and not too watery, it’s moving when I tilt it.
But, one suggestion for you guys, do not put your gel type moisturizer in a hot room temperature.
I put it inside my cupboard but I don’t know why somehow the temperature inside it is as hot as my room (while I’m going out for a day). In my room at my house in different city is not like this, eventho the room’s temperature os hot, but not inside my cupboard.
The result is, the heat change the gel’s texture. Now, it’s getting more watery and smells a bit different than before.

Anyway, for the gel itself, it doesn’t feel sticky that long. It’s easy to absorb, I usually use it on my face, and around belly+chest.
For my dry skin, it’s not moisturizing enough if I use it alone. I layer this with other moisturizer to get a better hydration.

It’s also a good product for burnt skin, I mean like sunburnt or splashed by hot oil while frying, because it’s soothe the skin, reduce inflammation as a first aid.
Not bad for 10 dollars multi purpose gel.

That’s all for my quick review.
Hope you guys find it useful.
Thanks for reading.

The Saem Snail Snoothing Gel

Hello everyone. It’s time for skin care review. I’ve been loving moisturizer gel lately, eventho I’m still not letting go of moisturizer cream. I got this product in Sogo for IDR 149K, it’s a Korean brand named The Saem.

Usually soothing gel like this mostly from aloe vera extract, but this is from snail extract, as I remember the name of the snail “thing” is called Galactomyces.

Here’s the look of it (I don’t like the snail picture on it though).

Packaging :
It’s a bulky 300ml container, it’s quite cheap for that much amount of product. It is made of quite thick plastic, with dark brown color, it’s still a see-through packaging, so you can see how much the product’s left without opening it.

Texture :
Gel texture, transparent, light fresh smell, easy to spread and absorb (especially if you keep on patting the product on your skin, it absorb faster).

Perform :
It doesn’t leave a sticky feeling, quite moisturizing as a base before makeup, you can double layer the product for more hydration.

This size able to last around 4-5 months for me. I use it everyday in the morning and night.

Overall this is a good alternatives for skincare routine considering the jumbo size, eventho it’s not convenient for travel, but you can always use a smaller jar for travelling, and this bulky size for at-home-use only.

That’s all for my review, hope you guys find it usefull.
Thanks for reading.
