Thankful to SuiSui for giving me the chance to try these products from Day Mellow which I was luckily chosen in their Review Event. They’ve sent me three products namely: Amazon Belief Deep Clay Cleansing Foam, Amazon Belief ± Zero Balancing Peeling Pad and Amazon Belief Protection Andirova Sunblock SPF 50+ PA ++++

Its rich foam absorbs and washes away impurities and fine dust leaving skin clean and clear.

Orange peel oil, Lemon peel oil, Bergamot oil, Lavender oil, Basil oil, Pelargonium Graveolens flower oil and Alcohol
Packaging – tube type packaging
Volume – 150ml
Scent – smells like a typical drugstore cleanser
Texture – opaque white, thick and creamy turns into a foamy one
I tested this cleanser for five days straight (night time routine) to see how it’ll work for me sadly I didn’t liked this cause it made me breakout. This is your typical rich and foamy cleanser, the scent is a bit strong too. I don’t really like that it’s too stripping and drying for my combination skin, it’s a high pH cleanser and test in between 8-9. After using this constantly my skin felt tight and dry and lacks moisture and suppleness too. Though I think it cleanses my skin and remove all the dirt and grimes I don’t like the squeaky clean feeling it gives after every wash. It contains some essential oils too which I tend to be mindful coz my skin has been acting negatively with essential oils just recently.

Packaging – flip top tub packaging (no tweezers)
Volume – 70 pads (175ml)
Scent – fresh and lemony
Texture – has smooth and embossed side
My Experience: This peeling pad aims to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and helps with textured skin. It has two sides smooth and embossed side and has a good amount of essence too. According to studies PHA is gentle and safe for everyday use and suitable for sensitive skin. Tried using this during my night routine, it smells citrusy and felt a bit tingly as for my experience. I’m still skeptical to use this coz this product is loaded with potential irritants. Yes you read it right it has essential oils, which we all know it can be sensitizing. Too bad my skin cannot tolerate essential oils in my routine knowing it has more than one in the ingredient list. I think I’ve used this maximum of five times only, I don’t wanna risk as my skin is very sensitive at the moment so I can’t really tell if it’s effective or not. But for my point of view you can use this maybe maximum of twice a week and be sure that you’re not sensitive with essential oils and always patch test your product.

⚠️ Orange peel oil (can cause photosensitivity)
Packaging – spout pouch
Volume – 20ml
Scent – orangey
Texture – white and lightweight lotion like texture
My Experience: This is a chemical sunscreen which protects you from harmful UVA and UVB rays. I’ve used this sunblock daily in my morning routine. What I like about this is its really lightweight and leaves no tackiness at all. It has high sun protection too, knowing its a broad spectrum sunscreen. It feels nice on my skin, very moisturizing and gives a dewy finish. The only drawback is that it contains orange peel oil, a type of essential oil can be be very sensitizing and its photosensitive too. As I said I am mindful of essential oils so after testing it for about a week I decided not to use this anymore coz I don’t wanna take the risk and cause more harm with my irritated skin.
Overall thoughts and experience: I am quite disappointed that few brand still uses essential oils in their skincare products. As much as possible I want to limit using products with essential oils. Yes they can be pleasing with our sensorial experience as it smells good however using products with fragrance can cause more harm to our skin in the long run.
