Happy Friday! It's time for yet another skincare review from me.. Well, do bear with me ya cos like any other girl, I love and strive to have good skin and I'm giving another new product a try!
HiShop always takes extra care in wrapping and delivering their products, even if it's just a small bottle like this. :)
Introducing.... The RA8 Refreshing Cleanser! RA8 is a natural and safe anti-aging product made in Malaysia. RA8 skincare products are manufactured in accordance to the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and approved by the National Pharmaceutical Control Bureau. Marine-elements in the products have been scientifically proven to enhance collagen synthesis, stimulate skin cells renewal and contains antioxidant properties. It also has skin lightening effect, provides UV protection, preserve skin's health and maintain youthfulness.
I received the travel-sized 50ml cleanser from the RA8 starter kit and is lightweight and mini enough to carry around. The bottle also comes with a pump nozzle which I like! However, I have to comment that I really dislike the bottle design because it is quite unstable and the screw cap and nozzle actually comes apart quite easily -.- I've spilled the contents so many times, so wasted!
The cleanser is a clearless, scentless liquid. The ingredients used are mainly patented marine-based bioactive essence.
Directions to use:
Welcome to my bathroom. Lol. The lighting is quite bad here so do forgive me for the dull photos. I've already tried to edit it as best as I could.
Pour/ pump a small amount of the cleanser onto your wet palm.
Work into a rich, creamy lather. Actually, it hardly foams at all idk why it's stated "rich and creamy" lol.
Apply on damp skin and massage gently. It's a very neutral cleanser as it doesn't foam up much.
Rinse thoroughly and wipe your face with facial cotton or a towel.
Ahh, nice clean face! I love that feeling.
The usual cleanser that I use is also a clear, neutral one like this so I have no problem with the cleanser not foaming up much. Some people think that cleansers like these does not clean well but I beg to differ. I've used this cleanser for about 2 weeks now and it really cleans oily skin thoroughly, without leaving any sticky feeling. I can't continue using it anymore because as I said, the contents have spilled so many times that the bottle is almost empty now -_-
What I dislike is that the cleanser doesn't remove makeup well but then again, it did not state that it has that function. Also, the cleanser tends to dry out my skin so I have to ensure I hydrate my skin after washing.
The results are good, but not fantastic. I don't think I'll be repurchasing this product anytime soon. Sad, I was really hoping it'll be amazing since it's a home-grown brand.. Of course, the skin brightening and youth preserving results are not so obvious due to it being an anti-aging product which is not suitable for my skin..
The RA8 Refreshing Cleanser, Regenerative Serum and Renewal Skin Creme which can be found in the starter kit have been proven safe and effective with no animal testing. In 4 weeks, it claims to increase skin hydration, brightness, clarity and firmness. You can get the RA8 Starter Kit here for RM118.
