Review: MAMONDE Floral Hydro Narcissus Intense Hydrating Skincare

It takes me a while to truly believe in the natural beautifying power of flowers, especially after trying out a lot of botanical-based skincare products which don’t really work wonder like how they claim to be. But one brand which I have trusted since the first day it came into Malaysia in 2016 is Mamonde, the popular Korean brand which has always been known for inspiring beauty with flowers.

Mamonde’s current skincare solution is all revolving around the blossoms for different needs of the skin:
❤ Revitalizing Honeysuckle series
❤ Moisturizing Hibiscus series
❤ Hydrating Narcissus series
❤ Cleansing Lotus Flower series
❤ Anti-aging Camellia series



For dry skin like me, certainly the Narcissus series is my first choice for its hydrating power. A symbol of happiness and beauty, Narcissus flower, or more commonly known as daffodils, has been cultivated since the ancient Roman days for its healing benefits.

Do you know that Narcissus is one of the rare plant species that survives the harshest winter?
All thanks to its strong moisture storage power and excellent moisture circulation ability!

That's how Mamonde found an ingenious use for the Narcissus bulb in the improved Mamonde Floral Hydro Line.


Mamonde Floral Hydro Line functions to moisturize the skin, preventing it from drying after washing.
It consists of the all-new products in the line:
1. Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner
2. Floral Hydro Emulsion
3. Floral Hydro Eye Gel Cream
4. Floral Hydro Cream

Among the 4 items, I only try the 2 Star Products: (1) Ampoule Toner; and (2) Cream.


Step 1: Floral Hydro Ampoule Toner (150ml) @ RM89


Do you realise that washing the face will reduce the skin's natural moisture? That's why I will never skip using Toner after cleansing. But this “Ampoule Toner” is more unique in some ways, and I am satisfied that it works way better than the ordinary toners out there.

Texture: ★☆
The ampoule texture feels like a liquid-filled bubble but when it touches the skin,
it transforms into water. Easily spreadable and quickly absorbed by the skin.

Key Benefit: Deep Moisturization
Compared to the previous Floral Hydro Skin Softener, the Ampoule Toner
increases the skin moisture level by 226% - approximately 2.8 times more moisturization.

Feel: ★☆
It feels richly moist, soothing and not irritable on my sensitive skin. No more feeling dry / tight after washing the face! 

Result: ★☆
A thin and clear moisture layer is formed onto skin Then it disappears quickly
as the skin instantly absorbs it and locks in moisture. Love the dewy glow finish too!

What I like: ★☆
The simple yet effective application makes the Ampoule Toner ideal for an everyday ampoule-infused hydration.

Step 2: Floral Hydro Emulsion (150ml) @ RM89
Provides dual hydration and finishes the skin with a fresh, hydrated glow.

Step 3: Floral Hydro Eye Gel Cream (20ml) @ RM99
Gives the delicate skin below the eye area with rich moisture, thanks to its
91% moisturizing properties and a small amount of silicone (9%).

Step 4: Floral Hydro Cream (50ml) @ RM109

When I first heard about facial "cream", it gives me some uneasy feeling as I would think of the usual thick creamy texture and potential sticky residue on the skin. To my surprise, this Floral Hydro Cream is totally different from what I thought! 

Texture: 
It feels like water gel on the skin; So light and easy to spread onto skin.
Similar to the Ampoule Toner, it turns into water and quickly disappears once it touches the skin.

Key Benefit: Double Matrix Moisture Locking
An improved version of moisturizing cream featuring a light texture and strong moisturizing benefits.

Feel: ★☆
Love that deeply nourishing and cooling sensations!


Result: ★☆
It feels refreshing on skin with a slightly cooling sensation and no stickiness at all.
Skin becomes supple on the surface and deeply hydrated from within.


What I Like: ★☆
It works great for locking-in moisture to the skin for long-lasting hydration. Application wise,
it is pretty versatile – It can be used as daily moisturizer and hydrating sleeping mask at night.


Verdict:
1. Don’t belittle the floral hydro hydrating power of the narcissus bulb; The improved Narcissus series now has deeper hydration, faster absorption and better moisture replenishment.
2. If you need a long-lasting and sustainable moisture boost to your dehydrated and sensitive skin, this is probably what you’re looking for.
