Review: FRUDIA Korean Pore Control Skincare Series

Hi, beauties! Are you a fruit lover? I mean, how many portions of fruits do you take daily? People who do not have enough fruits may not be able to enjoy good skin complexion, therefore FRUDIA, a new Korean brand under Welcos is born!

Don’t take enough fruits? No worries! FRUDIA is a professional fruity cosmetic brand, delivering nutrients of fruits directly to the skin for healthier skin.

Well, we do see fruit-based skincare in the marketplace but what makes FRUDIA different is the “fruity formula” by Welcos – using only fruit juice, 100% extracted with R VITA W™ – stabilized with the optimum mixing ratio, in order to deliver the essence and anti-oxidative energy of the fruit effectively to the skin.

Do you believe that beauty comes from fruits? FRUDIA does!

Hence, this “Fruit Therapy Skincare” suitable for ladies from 20s to 30s, especially those who experience fatigued skin due to stress and noxious environment, and milde enough for sensitive skin. 

I saw FRUDIA products for the first time when I was in Watsons store, and I was already attracted to the premium yet cute packaging.

Currently, FRUDIA has 4 special skin care lines but I only saw 3 in Watsons:
 Blueberry moisture line: Provides moisture with extract from blueberries of clean Jeju.
 Tangerine vitamin glow line: Helps in whitening care with vitamin C and flavonoid ingredient in tangerine.
 Green grape pore line: For pore & sebum care as tannin of green grape cares skin to be smooth.
 Pomegranate moisturizing and elastic line: Provides deep moisture and nutrition with polyphenol, the anti-oxidative ingredient of pomegranate.

Instead of going for my usual hydrating skincare range, this time I opt for a change because I need something to treat my open pores condition very badly...

So I have gotten this 4-step Green Grape Pore Control skincare to try out:-
Toner, Serum, Cream, Sheet Mask

Green Grape Pore Control Toner (195ml) @ RM69.00

FRUDIA’s waterless formula allows each product to be richly composed of organic fruit-derived extracts. For example, the toner contains 89% green grape extracts – extremely rich in antioxidants!

How to make the pores smaller? Keep them clean! The formula helps remove pore clogging buildup, by sloughing off dead skin cells.

How To Use: 
Apply toner on cleansed face and tap for absorption.

You can use both the palms or cotton pad. If using a cotton pad, make sure it's well saturated with the toner.

Texture: ★★★☆☆
It is a "watery" type of toner - too dilute for me, but nevertheless I'm glad that it does not leave the skin sticky.

Feeling: ★★★★☆
After using, the skin feels refreshed. And it leaves the skin feeling much softer too.

Result: ★★★★☆
As much as it helps to target the pores, this toner is actually quite hydrating.
No sticky residue or whatsoever; Just a simple, fuss-free toner to aid pore clogging issues.

Scent: ★★★★☆
Rich in fruity sweetness. It tastes "delicious" for the skin.

Green Grape Pore Control Serum (50g) @ RM103.00

The serum is more skewed towards combating oily skin and large pores issue. Containing 81% green grape extracts instead of water, it is crafted with skin-revitalizing tannoids that visibly mattify pores while smoothing outer skin complexion. Suitable for all skin types. 

How To Use: 
Apply adequate amount gently onto face twice a day.

Texture: ★★★
Extremely lightweight gel-like serum that is very easy to spread around skin.

Feeling: ★★★★☆
It soothes and hydrates my irritated skin. Love the natural, gentle and soft skin feeling it brings!

Result: ★★★☆☆
For my skin which has lots of open pores, the serum is able to "smooth out" my skin, creating a matte skin surface.

Scent: ★★
Very fresh green grape flavour - Rich yet not overpowering.

Green Grape Pore Control Cream (55g) @ RM96.00

Formulated with 81% green grape extract, this super-charged cream reduces the appearance of pores while tannoids moisturize and brighten for smooth and soft skin. Even oily skin needs hydration, therefore this lightweight option is ideal to boost moisture while making pores appear teeny tiny. 

How To Use: 
Apply a dime-size amount of moisturizer to your skin in light circular motions until absorbed.

Texture: ★★★☆☆
The texture and color are very different here! It appears to be "matte" with
translucent, creamy consistency. Equally easy to spread around the skin too.

Feeling: ★★★★☆
On the skin, it feels like a "protective layer" that coats the skin with loads of moisture.
And it does not feel heavy at all - being a "cream", I am surprised by its feather-light feel on the skin.

Result: ★★★★☆
It works great as a protective moisturizing barrier because of its smooth texture that blends between the pores of the skin easily. Definitely not something heavy for those problematic skin - Hence, it is ideal as the last step of my daily skincare regime.

Scent: ★★★★
Perhaps it is thicker than the toner and serum, hence the scent is richer too -- Sweet and refreshing in fresh grape aroma.

Green Grape Pore Control Mask @ RM12 per piece

Lastly, for special care item like the sheet mask, I don’t use it on a daily basis but as regular as possible, because this natural botanical sheet mask is rich a refreshing 81% green grape extracts and moisturizing tannoids to minimize the appearance of pores and help firm skin.

How To Use: 
After cleansing and toning, apply the sheet mask for 10-20 minutes. 
Then remove the mask, and gently pat the remaining serum until fully absorbed. 

You can also apply a moisturizer after that to seal all the great ingredients from your sheet mask
into your skin. Recommended to use this mask every night.

Texture: ★★★
I love the thick, high quality material of the mask sheet that wouldn't tear easily.
Very high adherence on the skin and just the right size / cutting for Asian face.

Feeling: ★★★☆
The skin feels plump and moisturized after using this mask, but it leaves behind some sort of stickiness
and therefore I personally prefer rinsing with water after doing mask.

Result: ★★★
Instantaneous cooling and calming effects to the skin. But for the benefits of pore reduction and
skin firming, I probably need to use it more often in a long term in order to see visible result.

Scent: ★★★★☆
Rich in fruity aroma! I feel like having some grapes now.



Verdict:
1. I love how the entire range is composed of supercharged skincare with waterless formulas and organic fruit-derived extracts to deliver natural goodness to the skin without being overly rich for oily/sensitive skin.
2. The straightforward concept, antioxidant-rich formula and lovely premium packaging are the key reasons why you should try Frudia products. 
3. Must-try item: Green Grape Pore Control Cream

FRUDIA skincare products are currently available in most of Watsons stores nationwide.
