Review: Master The Cleanse With Senka | Clozette

Do you know that the average human attention span is a mere eight seconds? With an attention span shorter than that of a goldfish, it’s no wonder we demand things in a click, a snap, and a tap. The bad news is that our budding demand for practically everything is in overdrive, but the good news is that skincare is catching up on our need for speed. It’s not often we associate quick and easy with good quality, but with Japanese skincare brand Senka, it seems like speed and quality can be in perfect sync.


Read on as I give two of Senka’s bestsellers a test run – and find out how you can give them a try too!



With its entire facial cleansing and makeup remover series made out of two key ingredients, Senka is bringing intense hydration to a whole new level. Its naturally derived Silk Essence combines Sericin and Hydrolyzed Silk to extensively moisturise while forming a layer of protection over your skin barrier to fight external radicals.

That’s not all for an additional boost of moisturising effect! We all know that Hyaluronic Acid is a strong hydrating agent, but with the Double Hyaluronic Acid Compound – which combines two kinds of Hyaluronic Acid – this new formulation is designed to drench your skin with potent moisturising power.

With four SKUs each to the facial cleansing and makeup remover range, you’ll be sure to find the best match to your skincare needs. Here’s my take on Senka’s bestsellers, the Perfect Watery Oil and Perfect Whip!

Senka Perfect Watery Oil



If you’re looking for a heavy-duty makeup remover that can wipe away waterproof or heavy makeup, the Perfect Watery Oil boasts the strongest cleansing power among the series. Made with a new formulation that contains sebum/keratin plug melting ingredient, it dispenses a watery gel-like texture that works to dissolve makeup while it stays gentle on the skin.

The good thing about the Perfect Watery Oil is that it neither dries skin out, nor does it leave a greasy texture as the makeup pigments are massaged away. After cleansing with water, the skin remains refreshed and clean without that taut, rubbery feel. You can use the product with wet or dry hands, but of course, always make sure that your hands are clean before you start your skincare routine!


Senka Perfect Whip



Touted as the No.1 Cleanser in Japan, the Perfect Whip is a deep cleansing facial foam that is suitable for daily use. Together with the makeup remover, they are known as double cleansing, a popular skincare method coined by the Japanese and adopted by women worldwide. With just a 20-cent coin amount, the Perfect Whip lathers up to a generous amount of foam that is rich and dense – and there is good reason behind this.

All thanks to the two key moisture-binding ingredients, the product leaves the skin clarified and smooth to the touch, making the Perfect Whip an effortless yet hardworking daily cleansing ace. Because of its fine texture and light density, the tiny bubbles can effectively penetrate deeper into hard-reaching pores for a more thorough cleanse. The superfine foam also sits well on the skin without dripping off, a minor concern but a major plus point against inconvenience! To add on to the experience, it gives off a sweet fruity-floral scent (think Apple, Berry, Rose and Lily of the Valley!) that soothes the senses while it pampers the skin.

When it comes to product marketing, let’s be honest, Koreans do it best. Just look at how Innisfree did it by creating a web drama collaboration with OnStyle which feature its products, beauty trends, and tips!

Besides the gorgeous actors and beauty information, Beautiology 101 also introduced some interesting new products from Innisfree, such as their changeable colourful cushion cases through their campaign, called “Made By Me, My Cushion”. These cushion cases are great for switching up your compacts depending on your outfit and mood.

If you happen to be travelling in Seoul and want to customise your cushion foundation cases from Innisfree, then drop by their #MyCushion ATM! It’s a pop-up store at Garosu-gil, Seoul where you can instantly switch your case to a fun and cute design! But you have to hurry, because the pop-up will only be there till the end of June!

If you’re more of an eyeliner lover, though, then you’ll be glad to know that Beautiolgy 101 also introduced Innisfree’s Always New Auto Liner – an eyeliner with a sharpener inside its cap, so you can get a sharp tip every time you use it!

And because Innisfree understands that a sharp eyeliner tip is crucial to create a perfect line, they also thought about giving makeup lovers and pros a lot of colour options by releasing 20 different shades to suit everyone’s liner needs!

By perfectly combining “drama” and “beauty” in one show, learning how to use Innisfree’s products has never been more fun or easy. And since Beautiology 101 just finished airing, you can now marathon the entire 10-episode season and pick up more beauty tips and tricks here!

Whether it be domestic or international flights, there are restrictions when it comes to carrying liquids. That's why travelling with your favourite fragrance can be an inconvenience in a lot of ways; from not meeting the allowable amount on board to worrying about the fact that the bottle might break or leak inside your luggage. 

Still, that doesn't mean you should forget about smelling fresh and fab as you head out exploring new sights. Get those packing bags ready with our travel tips on how to pack your favourite scents!

--------------------------

Sock it up



If you absolutely have to pack a whole bottle of perfume in your check-in luggage, make sure it's secure and does not break during the flight. So stuff it inside a stretchy pair of thick socks; and make sure it stays in place by sandwich-ing it between your clothes. That way, your perfume will be well cushioned to withstand travel.
Go for a stylish, yet compact and functional container



The scent is just one of the things we love about our perfume. The other thing we love? The packaging. We have to admit that one of the things we also consider when purchasing most of our beauty products is its aesthetic. But if the bottle is too big for travel and you don't want to risk breaking it during transit, then the Travalo Classic is the way to go!

Slim and sleek, this new atomizer might just be the secret must-have item that perfume lovers should get their hands on. Each comes with a patented Genie-S system that allows users to easily “pump to refill” their favourite scents. This unique system refills the atomizer in seconds without any spills or exposure to air, making it the perfect travel companion.


Feel free to be 'clingy'



Worried about your perfume bottles leaking during the flight? Uncap the bottle and wrap a thick layer of saran wrap over the opening. Make sure that the saran wrap is flat and perfectly sealed on all sides before replacing the cap on the bottle. That will ensure that your perfume bottles remain leak-free throughout the flight!


Maximise the mist your perfume spray produces



Sometimes, it's so easy to go overboard and spray way too much perfume all over ourselves. The result: running out of perfume before the end of the trip. To prevent this, we turn to Perfume Pod!

This minimalistic perfume container may seem tiny, but the 5mL it carries goes a long way. With its controlled nozzle, it can deliver up to 60 to 85 sprays. That's more than enough to keep you smelling great throughout your trip!
