Fun Review : Back To Basics Skincare (PICTURE HEAVY)

A few weeks ago, the owner of Precious Me contacted me and asked if I'd like to do a review on her skin care products.
I've been having a lot of skin problems lately, so once I read in her blog that her skin care products are natural, I decided to give it a go. :)
She generously sent me two skin care samples to try : one cleanser and one toner-and-moisturizer.
After receiving these two products, I decided to test-run it for one week to see how much changes does it make to my skin. (and I'm glad I did test-run it, coz its so much better looking now (my skin, ahem) )

My package was sent through Pos Laju (she's really generous).

When I opened up the Pos Laju plastic bag, I am really happy to find that my samples were wrapped really carefully.
The owner bubblewrapped my skin care samples with a big bubblewrap.
After removing the bubblewrap, I found these babies :
The cleanser sample is really big for a sample and can be used for more than two weeks (I'm still using it now) ; day and night use.
I received a Back To Basics 'Flower Power' 3-in-1 Facial Cleanser (15g) and a 2-in-1 Natural Moisturizer and Toner (6g).

So, I'll start with the reviews! :)

Back 2 Basics 3-in-1 Facial Cleanser in 'Flower Power'

OK, when I first saw this, I was excited.
This is as I have never used a powder cleanser before! :P
My skin is kind of sensitive so I'm actually really relieved to know that this cleanser is made from 100% natural products. Its time for sensitive skin to rejoice!

What I really loves about Precious Me is that they actually give you a clear label on your skin care products as well as directions on how to use them.

Here is the step-by-step guide on how to use this wonderful cleanser :

Step 1 : Pour a suitable amount of powder cleanser onto your palm

Step 2 : Add a few drops of water (add very little drops of water. This is to make sure you make a paste, not liquid)

Step 3 : Mix with your fingers until a paste is formed. You will get a dark brown paste.

Step 4 : Apply the paste on your face, making sure you cover every part of your face.

Step 5 : Scrub in circular motions

Step 6 : Rinse off with cold water (I like rinsing off with cold water.)

This cool cleanser can be used as a cleanser, a scrub and a face mask.
Isn't this wonderful? This product functions 3 ways and we save a lot (as we only need to use one product instead of three products).

So here are my thoughts on this cleanser, scrub and mask (all in one) :
Honestly, I have sort of given up on looking for the perfect skin care products. Having spent a lot on skin care, and trying various brands, they never seem to work on my skin. Do you know as you age, your skin needs change as well?
So when I was given a chance to try out this product, I was a little not sure if I should, as I have been facing a lot of skin problems (acne, skin peeling) and I'm scared this might hurt my skin. However, once finding out through the website that this skincare focuses on using natural ingredients, I am actually pleased as natural products do no harm to your skin unlike chemicals.

OK, enough of that. When I first opened this cleanser bottle, I could immediately smell a scent of herbs. Yes, plenty of herbs. The ingredients of
this cleansing powder are as of below :
As you can see, there are NO signs of chemical in this cleansing powder.
Do you know certain chemicals in skin care products can actually lead you to wrinkles and all signs of aging?

When I first use this product, I am very satisfied as this cleansing powder really did remove all traces of dirt and grime from my face, without stripping away its moisture. My face feels a little tight though after the first wash but with frequent use (I'm using this for almost two weeks now), my face feels good.
My pimples are visibly reduced and my skin does not peel as often anymore. My skin actually looked fairer as well! I'm actually very happy about this.

Conclusion : This 3-in-1 cleanser is surely a good buy. Not only does it contain natural ingredients (100%), it also gently cleanses and moisturises my skin. I loves how fair I look after every wash. For RM68 (50g), this cleanser is not expensive as it uses natural luxurious ingredients such as dead sea black clay.
For an introductory offer, the first 20 customers get to purchase this baby (50g) at RM50 only!
As for trial sizes, the normal price for a 15g trial size is RM25, while the first 20 customers get to purchase this for RM20 only!

Back 2 Basics 2-in-1 Moisturizer and Toner in 'Nourish Me'
This 2-in-1 baby is da bomb! ;)
I surely want more!!

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to use this cool toner and moisturizer :

Step 1 : Using the pump, pump a drop of this product onto your palm

Step 2 : Rub your palms together

Step 3 : Apply this all over your face in circular motions. Use this after cleanser.

Step 4 : Let dry and relax

So here are my thoughts on this 2-in-1 baby :
When I first use this, I was really satisfied. Not only does this product moisturize my face, my face also feels toned.
I especially liked the scent. This smells like tea tree oil and lavender. Very soothing and relaxing, if you ask me.
I also loves how convenient this thing is to use. This product comes with a pump on top so its easy to pump out the product.
The consistency of this product is a bit watery but I like it as it is. :)
After using this product, my face felt really cool as well. I like the fact that this product has a cooling effect on my face. Nice!
After almost 2 weeks of usage, I finished this product. :(
Saving up for more! :)

Here are the ingredients :

AGAIN, all 100% natural ingredients, so all you sensitive skin people, good news for you! :D

Conclusion : This 2-in-1 toner and moisturizer is surely an A+ buy.
Not only does it moisturize and tone my face, it also gives a cooling effect as well.
After almost 2 weeks of usage, my skin has less pimples and my skin is not as dry and patchy as it is anymore! :P
There are three types for this moisturizer and toner.
The one I'm using is 'Nourish Me'. This is perfect for people with dry skin.
There's also a 'Rejuvenate Me', perfect for normal/combination/mature skin.
For oily/acne prone skin, try 'Spot-less'.
Do shake the contents before use for optimum results on skin.

This baby costs RM90 for a 50g bottle. It is currently available for RM80 as an introductory price. This may be a little pricey but the ingredients are luxurious and natural.
Also, you save up a lot (as you don't need to buy two bottles of skin care ; a toner and a moisturizer, you get all that in one bottle!)
As for the trial sizes, the normal price for a 6g bottle is RM15, but it is currently available for RM12 as an introductory price.

Currently, Precious Me is selling trial sets of these two babies for RM32. You get :
1 x 15g 'Flower Power' 3-in-1 cleansing powder
1 x 6g 2-in-1 natural toner and moisturizer of your choice (Nourish Me, Rejuvenate Me, Spot-less)

As for the full size set, you can now get it at RM120 (SPECIAL OFFER PRICE!)
This set consists of :
1 x 50g 'Flower Power' 3-in-1 cleansing powder
1 x 2-in-1 natural toner and moisturizer of your choice (Nourish Me, Rejuvenate Me, Spot-less)

Personally, I'd recommend you get the full size set as trust me, you'll want more. ;)
Besides, its RM120 for like 5 products (I know, its only 2 bottles (one 3-in-1 cleanser and one 2-in-1 toner and moisturizer), but these 2 bottles can function as your cleanser, scrub, mask, toner and moisturizer! Isn't this fabulous?! Multi-tasking products are HOT!)

For more on these wonderful babies, go on to Precious Me and go Back2basics! ;)

Smile for the paparazzis! They loves your gorgeous skin!
