Rose Water Talk

I could never imagine beautiful Rose can be an ingredient for skin care products.  I was attracted by this Ingredient when i first learned products with Rose and I could not wait to try the Rose Water series from Grinif.  Rose is such a beautiful creature with great scant, I am also a “rose” person just like many of you.  I remember one of my sisters (I have 4 elder sisters by the way) used to make her own dried flowers at home when I was little.  I used to help her along the way so i learned how to by then, they are very easy to make indeed.   It is a real natural air fresher after all.

Interesting Ingredient: Gingseng

Ginseng is a well-known  rare phenomenon with curing purposes in the Asia Market and Korea is one of the leading production countries.  Many elders or people with health problem such as cancer, choose to take Ginseng as an internal treatment for a healthy life, in another word, regimen .

Believe it or not, Korean had developed to put Ginseng onto facec to pamper skin :O.  I tried to use Ginseng skin care a while after i got addicted to Korean skin care but stopped using them as the ginseng scent totally turned me off (only a personal thing).   I will update again later if i can finally accept that in the future, for now, only a ginseng mask with less scent is acceptable. 😛

Pearl was my mother favorite jewelry and she told me a lot of pearl formation stories.  I do not remember all but i do know where Pearl comes from.  Pearl will form from Oyster /Mussels/Clam with the purpose of a protection layer when irritation occur.  Layers of glossy liquid called Nacre, a kind of mineral substance, will be coated layers by layers mixed with grain of sand until a beautiful Pearl created.  This process sounded easy but it can take from years to years. (from 2 years up to 20 years) – this is why Pearl is so expensive.
