INFO PRODUCT 
Blog Label:
Brand : Cowstyle Skin LiFE
Name : Cowstyle Skin LiFE Cleansing Foam & Face Lotion
Made in: Japan

     Before we start talking about each product im going to review, i'm going to tell you guys a little about Cowstyle brand, in case you're not familiar with it. Im just gonna quote it from the website (http://www.cow-style.co.id) :

"COW BRAND is a long seller brand in Japan with a history of over 100 years. COW STYLE signifies daily life with peace of mind through Cow Brand products with the catch phrase "Life with Cow Brand Soap", and provides a lifestyle based on Japan quality (ease, safety, good quality) and Japan taste (material, scent, texture).

      The Japanese culture has been synonymous with perseverance, humility and exemplary work ethos. For this reason, the Japanese believe in the old saying ‘Work as slow but at a steady pace as the cow’. This is where the origin of the Cow Brand philosophy comes from. 

      To us, our cow symbol means more than just a trademark. The cow never moves backwards and will only march forward with great energy and perseverance. It is also gentle and docile, yet vibrant in nature – making it pleasant and likable to all. For all these reasons, we believe that the cow is a true reflection of our work philosophy. And with this philosophy in mind, we aim to continuously move forward and satisfy the ever-changing needs of our customers by delivering innovative, yet superior quality health and beauty products. 

     One of the secrets of our quality products is our everlasting commitment to the soap-kettle saponification method, a soap-making technique that requires a lot of time and care, but rewards us with natural moisturizing factors that cannot be achieved otherwise. Therefore, in celebration of our centennial year in 2009, we revealed a new basic principle ‘Everlasting gentleness and tenderness’ in order to commemorate our long-lasting commitment and heritage over the history of Cow Brand.

Things may change, but our philosophy, tradition and commitment will always, always stay the same."


     So yes, it's from Japan and it sells so many skin products. One of Cowstyle product line is Skin LiFe, which is an acne care series. Skin Life Product preserves the skin-face moisture by the solid and smooth foam. Make your skin clean, soft and keep it moist, improve your skin texture better and make the pores smaller and free from any acne. Remove the dead skin around the clogged pores of the oil gland and make the skin's getting brighter and also Oil free Allergy tested (though it has passed the non comedogenic test and allergy test, some people still have a chance to get acne and allergy problems).

     It has a few products actually which are; cleansing foam, face lotion, facial foam, and foaming facial wash. Each have different purpose and the ones im going to review today, that i've been using for more than 1 month, are the Cleansing Foam and Face Lotion.


PACKAGING & USAGE
     As i love each of the product differently, im going to make a separate rating as well, just to make it easier.

1. SkinLife Cleansing Foam
Content: 120gr
Price: IDR 57k (around $5)
Price based on stores in Indonesia.
  • Effectively removes acne-causing dirt from make-up, blackhead and excess sebum. 
  • Double wash is not necessary 
  • Contains “fruit acid” for moisturizing the skin. 
  • Fresh peach scent


     The packaging is simple with combination of yellow and red color tube. It has this flip cap, so it's pretty much easy to open and close. It's quite big and i can use it for more than 1 month (twice a day at least and about 2cm pasta of this cleansing foam each usage).

How to use:
Apply facial wash on palm and gently wash with good foam. Don’t scrub! Rinse well with water or lukewarm water.

Ingredients:
Myristic Acids, Water, Glycerin, Potassium Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Potassium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Lauric Acid, Ethyl Stearate, Behenic Acid, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Malic Acid, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Fragrance, Triclosan, Citric Acid, Titanium Dioxide.


     This is the cleansing foam pasta, it's pretty thick, but you can make big foam out of it! You can make it into foam by rubbing the cleansing foam pasta on your hand, or you can use body bath net (whatever you call it) to make even bigger foam and super super soft foamy foam <3

     Me my self prefer making it a big foam, because it's so comfy when it touch my annoying acne hehehe (Tia from utotia.net teach me to do this). The effect is also better when i make it as a big foamy foam because it's so soft it doesnt irritate my acne and make acne better. It maybe make your skin having a bit pulled feeling, but after that it doesn't dry the skin, so i still like it.

     Even though it says to clear out acne, unfortunately my acne is not the one that easier to get rid of (im think it is because of stress/hormonal thingy). But it does make some of them better, even though like usual, a new one appear again *sigh*. Even though it doesnt really clear my face like crystal clear, i still think it has some good effect on my skin, so im still using this cleansing foam until now (and give a rest for my last cleansing face soap because i think my skin is easily get bored with a product).

     I'm planning to get my self another tube of this Skin LiFE cleansing foam because i'm quite happy with the result even though i can't say my skin is clear (the acne keep coming back and i frankly tired of it hahaha), but i know it helps with some of the acne. Oh this one is also good for cleaning makeup, but to be sure i always double cleanse. But i notice the makeup leftover is way cleaner when using this.

Pro:
+ smells nice
+ can make a realllyyy big and soft foamy foam!
+ easy to use
+ quite good with acne even it doesnt really get rid all of my acne
+ good for cleaning makeup leftover
+ big tube, means plenty for use and last more than a month hehe

Cons:
- nothing really bugging me yet except the tight skin feeling after washing it

Overall Rating: 4/5


2. SkinLife Face Lotion
Content: 150ml
Price: IDR 68k (around $6)
Price based on stores in Indonesia.
  • Acne care face lotion. Need to use after face-wash! 
  • Active ingredients of “hyaluronic acid”, “fruit acid” and “lemon extract” freshly moisturize the skin and leave the skin smooth without acne. 
  • Fragrance free


     The packaging also quite simple with clear plastic bottle and red cap. Nothing so special about it. The cap is flip but secure enough that the lotion is not leaking at all.

How to use:
Apply lotion on palm or cotton and spread on the entire face gently. The lotion freshly moisturizes and leaves the skin smooth without acne.

Ingredients:
Water, Alcohol, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Dipropylene Glycol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Juice Extract, Malic Acid, Sodium Malate, o-Cymen-5-Ol, Methylparaben.


     This is the lotion, it's almost like water consistency and really easy to absorb to the skin. Literally just like water, but with a nice smell hahaha. Even though it actually quite good drying the acne, i dont like the result it gave my skin; dry. Yes, my skin, especially near the acne is quite dry and i dont like it. I kinda hope it actually moisturize my face, but somehow it doesnt. Maybe it doesn't really suite me somehow. So i only use it for about 2 weeks and after that i prefer not using this due to the drying thing.

Pro:
+ light
+ easy to use
+ easy to absorb
+ doesnt really leave a bugging feeling
+ can dry the acne

Cons:
- a bit drying my face somehow :(

Overall Rating: 3/5


OVERALL REVIEW

     Yes, i do like the cleansing foam because it do good on my annoying acne skin, but unfortunately i don't really like the face lotion. At first i thought it gonna moisturize my face, but because it drying the acne, it also makes my skin dry and not moist. Well, it's not that dry though, but even though im using the face lotion to dry my acne, i will make sure i add another moisturizer cream to make my skin moist.
     So for this moment i'll continue using both (even though i only use the face lotion once everyday and not twice). But in the end i guess i will buy another tube of the cleansing foam as mine is already running low, but i won't buy the face lotion because it unfortunately doesn't really suit my skin needs.
