Review: PurpleTale 5 Steps to Lovely Skin (Sponsored Product)

Today is the last day of the month, and how befitting it is for me to talk about the last product from PurpleTale on the blog today. I have already talked and reviewed their Smooth Transition BB Cream and the pair of moisturizers (Plot Twist Restorative Cream & Long Story Short All-in-One Cream), all that is left is their best-seller, 5 Steps to Lovely Skin!

Personal take : I was told that this 5 Steps kit was one of the best selling product of PurpleTale and after trying it, I can understand why. Except for the foam cleanser which I do not like because of its higher pH level, I really enjoyed using the rest of the “steps”.

The foam cleanser lathers up easily and rinses off just as effortlessly. Because of its slightly higher pH level, I know I had to moisturize the skin immediately. This is where the treatment ampoule comes in! The very soothing, very gel-liquidy, very fragrant, transparent ampoule that seemingly gets soaked up into the skin so very quickly. The ampoule leaves a “moist film” on the skin, signalling the time for the bio-cellulose mask application.

I had a love & hate relationship with the mask. Ahhh…the mask! Okay, you know, after applying ampoule, and you lay on the mask, your skin really feels it is getting hydrated and pampered. BUT BUT BUT…the mask sheet is too small for my big round face and left part of my forehead exposed. Thank goodness for the hydrating “moist film” the ampoule created, or I swear the higher pH level of the foam cleanser is going to cause my forehead to feel tight!

Some 20 mins later, the mask is removed and you will find that your skin is suitably moist and shiny. I then followed up with the moisturizing cream (Ode to Hydration Facial Cream). A thick, buttery cream that smoothed over the contour, though I realized for the amount of cream in the pack given, it was enough for 3 applications! Naturally, I squeezed out all and had to suffer the consequence of tissuing bits of it off and spending a little more effort to make sure all of the night cream got absorbed completely. Arrgh, my bad! I also did the same for the neck cream that followed, but instead, I massaged the excess all over my arms. That worked out nicely in the end.

In conclusion, I adored everything about this 5 steps except for the foam cleanser and the size of the bio-cellulose mask. I especially LOVE the treatment ampoule and the synergy effect it had with the Ode to Hydration Cream because my post-acne marks were less red the morning after (must be the Centella asiatica extract). I also appreciated the inclusion of the neck cream because like I mentioned earlier, you hardly see a neck cream included in a travel-ready kit like this 5 steps does.

Will i recommend it? : Yes, consider this the next time you are packing for a vacation
