For my first K-beauty review of 2017, I am going to start off with two skincare products from a K-beauty brand called B-Lab which are the B-Lab I Am Sorry Just Cleansing Peeling Gel & B-Lab I Am Sorry I Am Just Cleansing Water. What quirky names right? They totally managed to pique my interest when I first saw them on the website. With a very simple design, I could just imagine how Instagram-worthy this range would be.
Repurchase value: 4.5/5
This cleansing water contains ingredients such 92% Aloe Barbadensis (aloe water) extract and Melissa Officinalis (lemon balm) extract that are well known for their low irritation and calming properties. It's definitely gentle on my skin as I don't get that stinging sensation I had experienced with some other cleansing water. It removes makeup effectively even for the waterproof, smudge proof type. The only thing that bothers me is the scent. I don't know why but it just smells like coconut water (despite not having any coconut ingredient in it). Unfortunately, I am not a big fan of coconut scent in my skincare so that is kind of a turn off.
These days, people are starting to choose products that are more eco-friendly and contains natural ingredients and these B-Lab I'm Sorry Cleansing Water and Peeling Gel are certified with Eco-cert which makes them a great option to consider. It retails for RM17 (100ml) and RM52 (500ml) on Althea.
Repurchase value: 4/5 (cause the scent is not my fav, but if you love coconut scent go for it!)
