Naruko review part II

It’s been over 2 weeks since I first started using the Naruko skincare. Out of the 10 items, I didn’t use the mousse facial cleaner, morning toner and moisturiser. I skipped those because I’m still trying to finish up my Hada Labo moisturizing toner and my Olay morning moisturiser.

So for the morning, it’s still my usual stuffs but for my night regime, it’s Naruko’s mousse facial cleanser, ZA oil cleanser (if I’m not dead tired) Naruko facewash, followed by the night toner, night moisturiser (if I’m still not dead tired) and then either the Rose or Lavender sleeping mask.


How am I liking it?

I’m not liking it, I’m loving it! I thought I was dreaming but I realized that my pores shrunk and my face is much more hydrated than it has been in a long time. I noted my pores but was wondering if it could be because of other factors but when my colleagues commented on how her pores shrunk, I knew why. Of course nothing is perfect, there was somethings we didn’t like as well.

Things we dislike about the BB creams besides it being extremely sheer is the NO SPF part other than that is A-okay. The sleeping mask also tends to be very sticky. If you slap it on and go to bed, and if you’re like me who lay a towel on my pillow, you’ll wake up with your face and the towel stuck together. Nyahaha!

My colleague mentioned then I should pat my face like what I do for my Hada Labo toner. Pat it like no tomorrow and it shouldn’t be that sticky. Found out that, yea that works too. I’m definitely going to continue on with the products whether it makes my towel stick to my face or not cause I’m seeing results with it.

Since we ordered straight from their website, it cost us a lot less despite shipping being like RM60 each. We calculated that even with the extra RM60, it was cheaper than what others were selling. Only problem is the shipping (EMS) has decided to raise their price according to my colleague to about RM90 per person now. We decided that we’ll just get whoever who’s going to Taiwan to get it for us the next time.


I can’t say much for the whitening part as I usually take no notice of how ‘brighter’ my skin is. I only take notice when it’s not. Not to mention, Elisa has told me that she has yet to see me with dull skin.


Apologies for the lack of photos, will post them up later.

*waves* Hey Ash! =) I have not heard of the Naruko brand but I am happy to hear that you are loving it! I heart your pretty purple blingy nails *^_^* I just started using the Hada Labo toner and moisturizer. Truth be told, I don't always slap myself silly like you're supposed to when using the toner. I guess I should. ;)

indeed! That's v creative with the glitter nails! I duno if i can carry such colours on me!

Btw u r asking about doing laski n wearing contacts?

Yes Nt everyone is suitable to wear contacts after lasik because the curvature of your eye has somewhat changed.

What I'm wearing now is just daily cosmetic lenses from Focusdailies & it can only last 1/2 a day (for my case) anything more than that it becomes dry as prune.

I also have to b careful not to wear it too often so as to protect my eyes from minimum infection/bacteria or WORSE of All CHRONIC DRYNESS.

I guess these are the points whereby u can watchout for.

my lips are small too! i just learned to draw outside my natural lines a bit haha. i used to scream at anything reddish or pinkish on my lips - i could only wear 1 lipstick growing up it was so sad. i guess now if i'm crazy enough i can fake wearing such bright reds.

you should try it for photographs sometime :D i think it would be an interesting look that goes well with your pale skin!

Your EOTD posts are super useful for poor folks with monolids like myself! So hard to find eye make up guides that dont involve words like "shade until your crease". My crease doesnt exist dammit.

Keep it up :)
