BE.ST Organic Beauty Review | More Foam = Less Dirt

I used to have really bad break outs on my face, and although it has improved over the years, my complexion has always been substandard. I tend to have oily T zone and sometimes working in the kitchen as a baker really escalates the issue, causing me to have pimples and black/white heads. Having bad complexion dampens my confidence issue and I sometimes rely on concealer to cover up the acne on my face. But this only solves the surface of the problem, and in fact made my break out worse most of the time. But BE.ST Organic facial products have really made a huge positive impact on my facial complexion. And I'm not saying this because the products are sponsored, I have actually been using their products for the past half a year as a legit customer.

I'm currently only using a few of their full series - Balance Cleansing Jelly, Cleansing Milk and Organic Bulgaria RoseOtto Hydrosol.

The most common cause of breakout is usually due to not washing your face thoroughly. The dirt on your face will usually cause bacteria to grow, pimples just keep appearing, and they spread... such horror.

BE.ST Organic Ylang Ylang Oat Balance Cleansing Jelly helps to remove impurities and oil from my face, without compromising on hydration. I have previously tried out other brands of facial cleanser, while they are quite effective in removing oil, the after effect made my skin felt really dry.

Usage: Apply an appropriate amount on your fingers, mix it with a small amount of water and rub it with both hands to generate bubbles and foam.

The trick to maximize the effective use is to actually create as much foam as you can (the more the merrier). And it actually makes washing my face a fun thing to do because I like to do silly things like challenging myself in creating more foam than before. Let's just say that it's not purely for the fun because I really do see the difference, and I feel so much more refreshed after the cleanse.

You can watch my video to see how I created the foam and massage it on my face. I have my eyes and lips make up on in this video but I removed my BB cream before cleansing my face.

Before you think that this product is absolutely magical in removing ALL acne. No, it doesnt.

But it really helps to speed up the process of acne recovery, as I have mentioned earlier, the cleansing step is really important, in fact the most. I'm really impressed with its effectiveness.

If you want to be a little more kiasu and have deeper cleansing, I suggest you use the Cleansing Milk Foam before the Balance Cleansing Jelly. It has a milky texture that dissolves purities, oil and any excess foundation left on your face (Removing make up can be so dreadful at times) Taking this little extra step makes a huge difference!

I also tried out the Revitalize Essence (Argan Oil and Rose Geranium), which helps in hydrating and moisturizing your skin. The main purpose of this product is to help against aging and fine lines, and is perhaps more suited for people who are concerned with their aging skin. The product is generally easy to use with a dropper. A bottle of 25 ml would probably last me the entire shelf life of this product as only a tiny drop is required for full application. Personally, I don't prefer using oil based products as I tend to have oily T zone.

The Bulgaria Rose Otto Hydrosol is my life-saver when it comes to red and sensitive skin, especially after my bath. No matter how much I try not to have my face in contact with hot water when I bathe, my skin still tends to react and there will be red spots and slight rashes. I usually spray this on my face to soothe my skin and reduce any acne inflammation and of course enjoy the extra benefits that comes along in this bottle - hydration. 

It's also a plus point that the product is made from organic ingredients. Many of the beauty products in the market have harsh chemicals that may create an allergic reaction to sensitive skin. Even if it doesn't show, it may still be potentially affecting your skin.

I'm so glad that BE.ST Organic has given me an opportunity to improve my complexion, and thank you for sending me all these beauty products to review. Stay tuned for my blog posts if you are interested to find out more about this brand!
