As-salamu alaykum and hello everyone ♡. If you have been following me in my Instagram you may have know that recently me and my Butterfly friends went to Langkawi for some awesome mission! I will blog about it later tomorrow about that trip introduction of Paul Penders and first of all I want to give an insight of the Paul Penders Skincare that we get to try hand in hand in front of the founder it self!
This is Paul, the Founder of Paul Penders who have live in Malaysia for over 10 years. He is also a Muslim. He decided to stay in Langkawi because he has found that our country are beautiful and have lots of good ingredients he can do a research for his skincare and makeup items. Paul is an active environmentalist and avid animal rights activist to his beliefs into his skincare and cosmetics. All of Paul Penders product are strictly contains "no chemicals" and "no animal testing" that were started with shampoos and later with more products such as skincare. He is indeed an animal lover! We sat inside his awesome office with an ocean view. We sat in circle and Paul began to give a little introduction on his products. How lucky we are to get a face to face interview with the founder!
We started out the session with the skincare introduction. First we were given this "skin profile" checklist. Also we were given a set of skincare products that suits our skin. Later we get to test out each of the skincare product on the back of our hand. Before the skincare routine start, we jot down our current moisture level. I will be showing the before and after in below demonstration.
After testing out the skincare range, we get to try this best seller product from Paul Penders! It is the Intensive Clarifying Therapy (ICT). This mask is unique because you get to use it after you mix both product together before you apply it. Let me give you a little brief about this mask. It claims to clarifies your skin and helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles and also promotes the skin's natural elastin, collagen production and helps to reverse premature signs of aging. It also will give your skin clarified immediately! It contains LevensESSENTIE Gold® (a mixture of 22 certified organically grown herbs + essential oils that is naturally derived from sunflowers, antioxidants and vitamins A and E. Both men & women can use this mask! Wohoo!
1. First pour the herbal powder into a bowl. Approximately 2 scoops or eyeball it. If you are sharing with you friends (sharing is caring!) pour a bit more okay.
2. After that make sure to close the lid afterwards tightly to keep its freshness.
3. Now add exactly 3/4 scoop of ICT II (Fortified Liquid) into mixing bowl.
4. Now strip it up! The texture should be like a paste.
5. Now that is my current skin moisture, before applying anything. 31.0.
6. Now apply it on to your skin.
7. Now bro fist! This is optional tho.
8. Wait till its a bit dry. You don't need to wait till its fully dry, to this state you can rinse it off. I love how it gives me this cooling sensation!
9. Now moisture level check! From 31.0 to 58.2! Wow! Need I say more? My skin also feels so good and plumpy! I love this mask!
