[BEAUTY REVIEW] Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Duo | Toner & Cream

Reviewing Mamonde Floral Hydro Toner and Cream
This has been an extremely outdated post, but its better late than never. There's just so much new skincare's coming out, but I only have one face to try them all! Thus, taking me a while to finally try out the Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Duo Toner and Cream. Both the toner and cream are currently in my skin regime, and let me share with you my experiences on the range. This range was launched in mid-2017 and claims to be a skin-friendly skincare range, the Mamonde Floral Hydro Duo which is inclusive of the Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner and Floral Hydro Cream.

From Left: Multivoltine Narcissus and Dutch Master Narcissus 
Being a fan of Mamonde, honestly, I noticed that some bloggers with dry and sensitive skin are not a fan of the range. But since I have combination skin, im keeping an open mind on what I really think about it. Through Mamonde's research into harnessing the power of flowers, the botanists at Mamonde have carefully selected two types of Narcissus which showed a high content of moisturizing ingredients to develop the Floral Hydro Range - the Dutch Master and the Multivoltine. Did you know that this flower has a long blooming period of over 80 days after it blooms? (which equals to high storage of moisture!)

REVIEW - Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner (RM89)

Floral Hyrdro ampoule Toner, 150ml | RM89 
Upon first impression, im actually pretty impressed with the appearance of the bottle. The toner comes in a 150ml bottle and has a pump head which makes it easy to apply toner. It harnesses the hydration properties of the Narcissus flower through Mamonde's Ampoule Texture Technology that allows maximum moisture and provide ultra-smooth texture that absorbs well by the skin. As you flip it around, the instructions are all in Korean so it would be best for you to ask the sales girl if you're unsure of the usage. Alternatively, you can use the google translator app too!

Gel-like texture, which turns to water when in contact with the skin
Directly apply to skin or apply it on a cotton pad
After cleansing my face, I would apply the Mamonde Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner on the palm of my hands and evenly spread it out with both hands before directly applying it on my face. It has a clear gel-like texture which turns watery once applied onto the skin. I was expecting it to be sticky since it had a gel-base texture, but surprisingly it felt really smooth and lightweight on the skin. Honestly, despite it only being toner, it was very moisturizing that it keeps my skin hydrated even before wearing moisturizer.

REVIEW -  Mamonde Floral Hydro Cream (RM109)

Floral Hydro Cream, 50ml | RM109
Next up in line would be the Mamonde Floral Hydro Cream. It comes in a 50ml tub, and it has a classy feminine look that I like. Also, don't be fooled by the word cream as this is definitely not your average cream. The cream is an ultra-moisturizing cream with a lightweight moisturizing texture that locks in moisture inside the skin without leaving any stickiness. Sounds too good to be true? Let find out!

Water based cream texture
Feels VERY moisturising when applied to skin
So as im removing the concave cover, you will find another cover that protects the cream from being exposed to air. Double protection is always the best. After applying toner, I would usually use the Floral Hyrdro cream to lock up the moisture in the skin. The texture is somewhat like a waterbased cream texture, and they are not kidding when they claim to guarantee moisture for the skin! It was a little too moisturizing for my skin to be worn on a daily basis, but when your skin is extremely dehydrated, this would be your best bet!


What are my overall thoughts? (btw, this is how I look without makeup)
As a verdict, I can confirm to you that both these skincare products from the range are designed to be lightweight, smooth, and comfortable on the skin. It does locks in moisture and keeps the skin feeling fresh and hydrated throughout the day/night. Loving the Floral Hydra Ampoule Toner, but not too much of a fan for the Floral Hydro Cream. Just an honest opinion, the toner was already good enough to moisturize my combination skin, but the Floral Hydro Cream was more of an extra dosage of moisture which eventually got my skin to have pimples when used too much. If you have combination skin, I would suggest you control the application of the Floral Hydro Cream.

Skin still looks great after a month of using it
The range is amazing when it comes to hydrating, but being in Malaysia, maybe the weather doesn't work well with the product as my skin is already oily due to the humidity, and the boost in moisture may be a little too much if you're outdoors. Not saying that these products are bad, but more of its too powerful in moisture. So if you have combination skin like me, this has to be used wisely. Like, if I have a day being indoors the whole day, both products feel great on my skin! Psst, I am a huge fan of their Floral Hydro Mist! Hehe. Will be writing another review n their Floral Hydro Mist, so stay tuned! Do leave me a comment if you have any questions, and I'll try my best to get back to you. xx
