[REVIEW] Farmasi Colour Cosmetic (FCC) SkinTrends Oily & Combination skin range

The latest SkinTrends Oily and Combination skin range
In Malaysia, I've been asked about certified HALAL skincare's and makeup, by fans and readers, so good news! Farmasi Colour Cosmetics (FCC) is now available in Malaysia flew all the way from Istanbul to provide Halal Cosmetics and Skin Care. The brand has been in Malaysia for a while now, but in this blog post, I'll be talking more about their latest skincare range, SkinTrends.

Presenting FCC's latest product range
I'll be honest that I've only heard about Farmasi Colour Cosmetics Malaysia earlier this year, and I got really excited to be given the chance to review their latest range, the SkinTrends. The SkinTrends range are available in 3 ranges to suit different skin types, which varies from normal skin, dry and sensitive skin and oily and combination skin.  I have to say that I love products that are designed to suit specific skin types as it usually results to better skin complexion.

How do you determine your skin type?
Here's how to determine your skin type. I would highly recommend you to know your skin first in order to purchase the right range to suit your skin type. And in you have oily and combination skin, then we're in the same boat! I have serious oily problems around my T-zone and of course, my open pores can be a hassle to take care of. So since I've determined my skin type, its time for the review!

The Oily Combination skin Range by SkinTrends
I was given the Farmasi Colour Cosmetic (FCC) SkinTrends Oily & Combination range to try where Acai Berry is the main ingredient. Did you know that Acai Berry has become a leading trend for diet, health supplements, for beauty and skin care? With the latest technology of European scientist with acai impact, its makes it suitable for all ages. The range comes in the form of a purifying gel, purifying tonic and a daily cream which I will further review in this blog post. As a first impression, I like how the ranges are all colour coded and that it looks very neat when I display it on my bathroom shelf. Now, it's review time!

SkinTrends Purifying Gel for oily & combination skin

Purifying Gel for oily and combination skin
Information available at the back. 
First, up would be the SkinTrends Purifying Gel for oily & combination skin. It claims to deep cleanse, removes oil and energizes skin while leaving the skin feeling purified and mattified. I'm glad that range has been dermatologically tested making it safe to use without any worries. If you're wondering, there are also instructions at the back in Turkish, English, Russian and Ukranian. Ingredients are also stated so that you can go through it if you're allergic. Another thing I would highlight would be that I love that it also states that it has a 12 months lifespan once you've open the product, ensuring that you only use the product when it's in its best condition.

The texture of the purifying gel is like liquid gel
Once in contact with water
Giving my skin a 2-minute massage. hehe
The texture of the purifying gel was very liquid-like, so it's very easy for the content to slide out. I'll just warn you to be careful when trying to pore out the gel to your palms to avoid wastage. hehe. This is the first step of the skin care that removes impurities, makeup residue, and excess sebum without drying the skin. It won't really foam as much, but it does produce really small bubbles because of its gel-typed formula. After washing, I realize that my pores felt tighter and that my face felt squeaky clean!

SkinTrends Purifying Tonic for oily and combination skin

Purifying Tonic by SkinTrends 
Information and instructions at the back
Once you have cleansed your face with the purifying gel, next would be to apply the SkinTrends Purifying Tonic for oily and combination skin. Applying the toner would be optional (depending on your skin condition) but it would be recommended that you use this for a more intensive result that tightens your pores.The toner removes impurities, tones skin, tighten pores and mattifies.

Apply on a cotton pad
And gently smooth on surface of the skin
I'll be honest that the toner was slightly strong for me, so I wasn't using it on a daily basis. I would advise using this only when your skin is extra oily, but otherwise, you can use it 2-3 times a week like I did. The texture was like watery, and the solution was transparent. If your pores are open, this product would really do the job to tighten pores. I used a cotton pad to apply the toner, and while applying on my skin, it does leave your skin feeling fresh, but for the first few seconds, you might feel a slight sting cause I think my skin may be a little sensitive to the product.

SkinTrends Daily Cream spf15 for oily and combination skin

The Daily Cream for oily and combination skin by SkinTrends
And the last step to complete the FCC skincare regime would be to apply the SkinTrends Daily Cream spf15 for oily and combination skin. It states that its high in antioxidant and cellular metabolism that expresses hydration to the skin. Personally, I've been using this cream daily and really helps to keep my skin moisturized without making my skin look oily. (If you have oily skin, you'll get what I mean)

The texture is cream like
Applying it on my face
After spreading the daily cream on my face. 
The texture itself looks and feels like cream, but upon application, it felt really moisturizing. I was expecting it to be sticky, but surprisingly it wasn't sticky at all. Although, I'll just let you know that it will turn your skin oily after about 6 hours, but it's not as bad as like regular days before I started using this skincare. It has been developed specially to provide sebum balance and mattifies the skin while protecting the skin with spf15. With that statement I approve that it does the job well and just to add on, I think the acai berry is doing a good job to make my appearance glow, no?

Security Seal

Security Seal
Security Seal
Security Seal
Not that it matters that much, but to me, I believe that quality products are usually sealed. This prevents you from buying products that have been exposed to oxygen and contamination. So to guarantee that your products are new, be sure to always check the security seal. I admire the efforts that they've put to sustain the quality of their products for their customers.

The price of the FCC SkinTrend products
And there you have it! Farmasi Colour Cosmetic (FCC) SkinTrend came all the way from Turkey to provide halal skincare ranges to Malaysia. Despite looking a little clinical, the products work like a charm. The price is reasonable and I would recommend you to try this out if you're looking for products that have results.

  22. While the quantity of restorative items in the business sector is in the thousands, there are entirely a modest bunch of corrective equations. The motivation behind this article is to convey to light these recipes by naming them and highlighting their capacities. I will likewise touch on how some of them are set aside a few minutes to utilize them.

I don't have deep dark secrets, but there are definite reasons why I have been fortunate to be considered very youthful looking, also I followhttp://www.thedermreport.com/tepezcohuite-cream-review/
