  1. THE MAL;GEM REVIEW !!!

    Yes, indeed, the malgem series is so new that the reviews available are most in Korean. So, I am going to do one to let you have some idea about the series. Basically, the series is about these six different products; they make up the simple step of toner, moisturize, and last the emulsion.

    The two toners are the Skin Malgem Smoother and Skin Malgem Fresh.

    Skin Malgem Smoother

    The Skin Malgem Smoother contains fruit acids that help in exfoliate your skin. ( I said helped in exfoliating, not help to exfoliate !)

    I personally have read reviews about people saying that the product does not help them to exfoliate their skin. The reason why is because they did not do it in the right way. There are two way of using the product. Since the product helps to exfoliate the skin, I do not recommend users to use it right after cleansing/ washing of the face. Instead use it after you remove your makeup, and then wash/ cleanse your face. This can help you to make full use of the product’s exfoliating factor. You can also use it as a normal toner if you want.

    If you are using it right after you remove your makeup, please remember to use an exfoliating cotton pad. ( If you don’t have it, well, etude house does sell it.) The product has its exfoliating properties, but you can expect it the exfoliate you skin, without you removing the dead skin. Anyway, I have used this product, it was given to me by my friend, I can say that this product does make my skin feel softer and I feel that it does help in reduce blemishes too. I used have a habit of washing my face in the afternoon in school, to get rid of the oil on my face. But now with this product, I just simply use it as a face mist, spray it on my face, then use the rough side of the exfoliating cotton pad to remove the oil and impurities ! EASY !!!

    (I have not got the Skin Malgem Fresh)

    The next is the moisturizing and hydrating step. There are 3 products; the moist, deep moist and the essential.

    Skin Malgem Moist and Deep Moist

    There are not many differences between Moist and Deep Moist.

    Differences

    1) The Moist is in a transparent serum-like form; The Deep Moist is in a milky, watery emulsion form. This being said, the Deep Moist is more moisturizing because it is richer and it leaves a very thin moisture film on your face after application. Some say that the Moist is somewhat similar to Hada Labo. But, personally I feel that there is a slight difference; the Moist gives you a very instant result and also it absorbs faster than the Hada Labo toner.

    Similarities

    I think they both have those almost same ingredients, especially hyaluronic acid that is a well- known hydrating reagent.

    Skin Malgem Essential

    Among all, this is my FAVOURITE product. This product is a very interesting product; it is a citrus-oil base toner-form solution. This oil-based product gives skin some shine and luster by leaving a moisturizing glossy layer on skin minus the greasiness. Why oil-base, you may ask. Oil base products are proven to be absorbed better and faster by our skin; the oil base property of this product ensures the product to be absorbed faster and penetrate into the skin deeper. Also you may ask if you have oily skin or dry skin, should you be using this product. For dry skin; All the more you should use. For oily skin; an unexpected answer, YES!

    People who have oily skin; the reason for your oily skin is because your face does have enough moisture and to protect itself, the skin will secret more oil than it should to help build up a barrier. But the oil that it secret will trap impurities and dirt as it is not just oily but also greasy. (Oily and sticky) In contrast, this product helps to build up a non-greasy oil barrier for use skin and at the same time, it also has hydrating and brightening properties.

    I personally have also been using this product. I can say that I am most satisfied with this product, because this product is help me to control oil secretion of my skin and also it really helps to brighten up my skin. I am not really sure about the ingredients, but I believe it should be olive oil, chamomile extract, and orange essential oil. Anyways, I really love this product. Shake it well and then pat it on your face. Do not use cotton pad to apply in on your face, the essential oil will wasted!

    I will get my emulsion soon and do a review soon …

    • Hi. i love ur review! it was exactly what i was searching for.. you should start a blog or if you already have one, would you mind linking me
      also, i was wondering if you have received ur emulsion and could do a review on it
      it would be much appreciated. thank you!

    • I’m still kind of confused. With the differences in function each of them has, does it mean we need to have some of these products and use it in sequence (ex: smoother+deep moist+emulsion since I have dry skin) or just pick one that suits our skin the most?

  3. Hello ! Thank you so much for sharing ! (; (:
    Hmm may i ask you for the Skin malgem “smoother” if i use normal cotton pad is it ok?
    And I have “smoother” and “moist” products with me. Do I use both at the same time? Like for example. apply “smoother” after that apply moist on it ?

    Last doubt, can i use the “smoother” to pour into the “pain” mask and put it on my face?

    Regards,
    Peggy (seahpq@hotmail.com)

    • Hello Peggy =)

      For the smoother, it is okay to use any kind of cotton pad, even cotton balls, if you prefer.
      As for both “smoother” and “moist”, you can use both as well, depending on your skin needs. ^^
      And yeah! you can pour the product onto a plain mask and apply it onto face.

      Facial products are quite there to cater to different skin types/needs, thus it is absolutely fine to match different products for individual use. =)

      Hope the above information helps!

      Thank you!

    • Hello sweetie,

      Firstly thank you for reading the review. It is great that you have both the smoother and moist. The smoother helps to exfoliate your skin. Removing the dead skin helps to allow your skin to be permeable for quick absorption. It’s good that you help the both. It is not a must to use the exfoliate cotton pad. But is best to… thank you so much :)

  4. Hi what is the correct or best method to use the emulsion? By patting on or using a cotton pad? I just purchase the ‘Essential’ and ‘Emulsion’ online and I received it this morning and I am very excited to try it out. Thanks!

    • Hello Leanne,

      It will have to depend on the texture of the products.
      If the emulsion is runny like water, then it is better to pour onto cotton pad;
      if it is thick in texture, then you can just use patting motion for application.

      Hope the above information helps! =)

      Thank you!

  5. Hi! I just drop by at sm megamall to purchase wonder pore freshner unfortunately it wasn’t available. But I saw this skin malgeum thing
    I don’t really understand because lots of varieties to choose from.
    Do I need to buy all of them? Or just pick one. I really don’t know. Hahahaha please help me I have an oily nose and blackheads. But dry face. Thank you and god bless (((:

  6. hello again! hehehe! been an avid fan of your blog. keep on asking… can i use skin malgem fresh along with wonder pore freshener? thanks again…

  7. So, i was wondering. My skin’s oily and the occasional pimples but i would say that my skin’s not smooth. So, do you think i should use (and is it okay) fresh, smoother and essential? Or is emulsion better?

  8. Hello Patricia,

    it is better to use smoother, then fresh, and lastly emulsion. Only the emulsion is a moisturizer. So sorry for the lack of info here, as each person has their own different skin type, thus what works for one may not work for the rest. =)

    It is better to try out the texture etc from the retail shop before deciding on which ones to purchase.

    Thank you!

  9. Hi, I have acne problems and my skin is oily skin type, I have smoother, emulsion, deep moist in hand, I wonder which is the toner, moisturizer and etc. From the information above stated that Fresh and Smoother are both toner, but I saw that they can be use in the same time. Besides, the 6 products in the series is prepared for different skin type or any skin will do?

    • Hey babe,

      First and foremost, thank you for reading my review. Yes, i did said that the smoother and fresh are toners. They are name as the toner because they do a better as toner for after washing of face.
      When we finish washing our face, we use need toners the clean of the extra impurities that are still on our face. These two does a better job. one helps to freshen you up and one helps to exfoliate.

      Since you have three of the products, i will make a mini routine for you.

      Firstly, wash your face.

      Second, use the smoother toner and it has exfoliating properties that help to remove dead skins and impurities.

      Thirdly, use the moist one. this should be better absorbed, as the skin is free of impurities !!!

      Lastly, to lock up everything time, use the emulsion. Make sure youdo some massages to allow the emulsion to be absorbed …

      If you are thinking of getting one more, i encourage you to get the essential one. it is combination skin !!! i am currently using it … I think you will also enjoy it !!!

      Seonh yeon !!!!

  10. Hello Michelle,

    I am not sure if the products are made solely for different skin types, or you can use them in any way you like. However, it is recommended that you use according to your skin needs. =)

    As for the toner, both “fresh” and “smoother” are toners. The “All in one emulsion” is a much more concentrated emulsion, that contains all 3 types of moisturizers in it: essence, cream and basic moisturizer. It is for those with really dry skin.

    Please note that, you need a toner before applying moisturizer. This is because, after you cleansed your face, your skin PH value will be affected. When this happens, your skin will not absorb moisture that well. Toner will help to balance back the PH value, maximizing the effect of moisturizer. ^^

    Hope the above info helps!

  11. Hi :) I have some acne problem and I guess its because I didn’t pay much attention to my skin. so my friend recommended skin malgem to me. and I would like to try these products. By reading the reviews and comments, I would go with smoother, fresh and the last one is confusing me, essential or emulsion is better? because my doctor advises me to use a non-oily moisturizer. Thanks for sharing.

    • If your skin has alot of pimple but it’s due to oily skin then I suggest you use the moist or the deep moist. And if you have dry skin or very dry skin then you should use the essential, the last one. I hope you don’t mind for the late late reply . :)

  12. Annyeong! I have dry/very dry skin. What is the best set to use for my skin? And I’m Black, are there any lightening agents? Is it safe for my skin tone?

    • I don’t think they have any brightening toner. But it is important that you have a radiant and glowly skin. So hydrating your skin is very important. Also good hydration of skin can also enhance any whitening products effects. :)

  13. hey, I have a combination skin type, and i confused to choose smoother or fresh product, can you help me to choose? :) hehehe

  14. Heylo , just wondering so i have this 3 products, Fresh as the toner , Deep moist as the moisturizer and what is the role of skin essential here? and can i just like spray the malgem on my face without using cotton pad, and is it a must to wash your face first before spraying it on? cause my face tend to get very oily and dry in school but i’ll not have time to wash it. so i was wondering if i can just spray the Fresh and Deep moist on. :)

  15. Hi, do you know if the products contain alcohol ? I have super sensitive skin and but really want a toner, preferably wonder pore freshner but I believe it contains alcohol, do you have a review or info on this one?

  16. hello, i am new to EH…and i am confused rite here.. i do not know what is my skin type..hmm actually when i am outdoor my face is oily at T zone..but other parts are normal (not oily and dry) then what skin malgem u can suggest for me? :-)
