Toning Your Skin with MalunggayMonday, August 19, 2013
Ok herbal cosmetic lovers! Are you ready for Moringa-O's Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner?
|Moringa-O Malunggay Herbal Facial Toner 100ml (PhP 89.75)|
"Malunggay leaves are an excellent source of vitamin A and B, and minerals such as calcium and iron. It is even an excellent source of protein, being higher than the amino acid pattern of Food and Agriculture Organization-reference protein, yet contains very low fat and carbohydrates. The leaves are incomparable as a source of the sulfur-containing amino acids methionine and cystine, often the natural minerals humans lack.
Due to its high vitamins A, C, and E, which are very potent antioxidants, malunggay is a very good quencher of unstable free radicals that can react with and damage molecules that cause aging. Antioxidants reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. They also prevent the onset of various chronic diseases like arthritis, cancer, and heart and kidney diseases."
The label basically explains it all. Yes, Olive Oil is great for moisturizing the skin too! So imagine the benefits when two of natures great ingredients are combined!
I not even going to pretend that I know everything there is to know about eading labels but basically I just Google ingredients I am not familiar with and then weigh it from there.
So, the ultimate test! I used this on myself for 3 days. Once in the morning before moisturizing, and once again at night after cleansing my skin.
The truth is, I couldn't use it longer than 3 days because I couldn't stand the strong fragrance. I am impressed with how great it cleanses and tones the skin (my pores actually became less obxious!) with just a little product, but I just found the product too fragrant. It lingers for a while too that's why I didn't use it for too long.
Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while would know that I really don't like strong smelling cosmetics. The product smells of sweet green tea. Like those handwashes or massage oils that smell too fragrant? Like that.
If smell is something that doesn't bother you easily, then I would recommend this toner! It really cleanses well, leaving your skin fresh and feeling clean.
Have you tried this toner? What do/did you think of it? Share with me!
