Hellooooow everyone! I know I have been gone for a long a** time and I apologize, but I am back with my second post about a review for the Gizi Secret of Seaweed products. If you have sensitive skin, you might want to read about these products right here. I have three products to review; they are the Daily Natural Lightening Foam, Daily Nutrition Cream with SPF 18, and the Daily Nutrition Cream. You can check out their website right here . You can buy these products in Super Indo, Kimia Farma, Tip Top, Dan+Dan, Borma Toserba, Mirota Kampus, Pamelia Supermarket, and Alfamart in the Jawa and Bali region.
Their website, and social media handles in case y’all wanna get in on them:

So, before I go into details about these products one by one, let us look at the delivery and the packaging. These products were securely bubble wrapped, which I think was nice. It came in with a bag that has the logo on it, and an artwork. The bag looked like those earth friendly kind of bags that you could recycle.
This here is the backside of the bag and the bottom picture is the sides of the bag

As for the packaging of the nutrition creams and the daily natural lightening foam
The green and yellow nutrition creams have the same packaging only different colors and description. Also the yellow one has “18 SPF” written on the front side of the box whereas the green one does not.
The Daily Natural Lightening Foam did not come in a box; it just came as it is on the picture.
I was also given a brochure that has information about these products.
In case you were lazy to read all of text on the brochure, let me help break it down for you into small points. So these products claim to be made from seven authentic Indonesian traditional herbs, which are Rumput Laut, Beras, Bligo, Kedelai, Lidah Buaya, Jeruk Nipis, and Pepaya. Each of these herbs has their own purposes.
Rumput Laut helps to really hydrate the skin, rich in vitamin and minerals, and prevents aging naturally.
Rice helps protects the skin from harmful UV rays
Bligo helps prevent acne and reduces inflammation from acne
Kedelai prevents aging and spotting on the skin
Lidah Buaya Hydrates, brightens and cools the skin
Jeruk Nipis natural antioxidant that prevents premature aging
Pepaya Helps exfoliates dead skin cells, smoothens and brightens the skin.
These products are made with the first of Indonesia’s Nano Technology that makes it easier for the skin to absorb the nutrition from these products naturally and effectively.
Alright, let’s move on to the product reviews. I am going to start with The Daily Natural Lightening Foam.
To be honest, I was afraid to try these products out because I know that I have sensitive skin and I can’t just switch products just like that because it might cause my skin to break out. But after knowing the seven herbs that are inside these products, I decided to give it a try because their descriptions and purposes are exactly what my skin needs. I have acne prone combination skin, and I get redness around my face, mostly around my chin area. I do have lots of tiny spots as well and my skin tends to get dry. Unlike the moisturizers, this foam face wash only has 5 of the traditional herbs inside it. It contains 50ml of product.
Price: 25.000 IDR
Texture: This product is like a mousse, it feels light, airy and soft, even when you apply it on your skin.
How to use: I wet my hands first and squeeze a pea size amount of the product into the palm of my hands and rub it until it starts to foam. Then I go ahead and use it all over my face, and around my neck. A medium amount of foam appears, not too much and it felt soft and nice. After I finish messaging my face with it, I rinse off with water.
Results: On the first day (I have used these products for 6 days) after I finished washing my face, my face did not feel dry at all, but as the day goes by as I continue to use it, every time I finish washing my face with it, my face gets slightly dry. It is common with any kinds of foam face wash. Besides the slight dryness, my skin does feel clean and refreshed. Another good thing is that I did not break out by using this product. I did not feel anything funny on my face and usually a couple of pustule acne would appear around my chin and I was expecting a farm load of them in the morning when I woke up, but miraculously there were just a tiny few, only around 2 or 3 which means I did not get any kind of new or weird reaction to my skin J CAN I GET AN AMEN?! xD AMEN!
So the score for this face wash is… *drum roll please*
On to the second product! Super Cream Daily Nutrition Cream (yellow version)
This daily nutrition cream is a moisturizer. It has UV protection, it brightens and smooth out the skin. You might be wondering; what is the difference between the yellow and green moisturizer. Well, the yellow one claims to have a newer formula and is packed with SPF 18, whereas the green one does not contain SPF. The yellow one is specifically made to be used when you are about to go outdoors or as a day cream. It contains 18gr of product.
Price: 40.000 IDR
Texture: similar to the Daily Natural Lightening Foam. It is a mousse like texture, almost whipped cream or shaving cream like. The scent is pleasant, nothing too strong. Smells kind of like Johnson’s baby powder.
How to use: After washing your face with the facial foam, apply this onto your face and spread it evenly.
Application: When you rub the product into your skin, it flakes off and groups into tiny itty bitty pieces. Seeing that I wanted to blend it even more by rubbing it again but it just made it even flakier. The more you rub, the flakier it gets. Patting the product onto your face is a better way to apply it. It doesn’t get flaky when you pat, but because of this it takes more time to spread and blend the product.
Results: It takes a while to blend, and it leaves a slightly white cast onto your skin and sits on fine lines of the face but after a little while it all disappears and blends with your skin. Besides the weird application, it actually felt really good and really hydrated! It doesn’t feel sticky or tacky. I tried this out from morning at 9.32 AM; until night and my skin had no negative reactions at all J it felt hydrated all day.
Last but not least, Super Cream Daily Nutrition Cream (green version)
This guy right here works as a general, anytime type of moisturizer. You can apply it day or night, whichever your little heart desires. Use this before the yellow one if you want to double it up. It does not contain SPF unlike the yellow one though. (The packaging is a bit weird, leaving the logo of the sun there when it does not contain SPF. Maybe it stands for the UV protection but it just looks like as if the designer simply erased the “SPF 18” text from the yellow one and just changed the colors to green. You could also use this as a base for your face powder, as it says in the description on the website.
Texture: This one is the different one out of all 3. It is more of a liquidy creamy form. It has a white mixed with a tiny bit of pale yellow color. This time it was very easy to blend, no flakes whatsoever.
How to use: Same as the yellow moisturizer, use it after you have washed your face.
Results: Blended out so well. Feels slightly stickier on the skin when you first applied but the feeling disappears as it dries and blends into your skin. My skin felt a tiny bit of a burning/irritating sensation after I applied it (maybe because I had touched or scratched my face too much that day) my chin also felt a bit tingly which scared the crap out of me because usually when my chin or skin feels that tingly slightly itchy feeling inside, it is a sign that hell is about to break loose (yes, pustule acne breakout). But, again miraculously, at the end of the day nothing happened just like the rest of the products! I think this product would just make the parts of the skin that has already been scratched or irritated/sensitive in the first place kerasa sedikit perih di awal-awal setelah pemakaian. I think it is kind of like when you apply alcohol to a scratch/wound to clean it but afterwards it doesn’t hurt anymore (I don’t know If I’m making sense or not, sorry lol). Does it hydrate? Yes it does hydrate; my face does feel kenyal or plump but I had to re-apply again because the hydration didn’t last too long for my face. It felt hydrated but made my skin that kind of slightly stiff but hydrated feel.
So all in all, let’s go back to the checklist
-Prevents acne? Yes, not many pustules on my face/chin anymore
-Reduce inflammation? Yes, well my chin doesn’t easily feel as irritated or red as it would on a daily basis.
-Cooling agent? Yes, I can feel it 50% on all products
-Brightens face and reduce spots? Have not seen results yet, baru pakai hampir seminggu
-Hydrates for a long time? For the yellow one; yes.
In conclusion I would say that these products are ALRIGHT J . Not “wow I need this!!”, but not bad as well. If you are looking for more affordable and natural made products for sensitive skin, or for any skin, this might work for you. Other review I guess would be about the design of the packaging. If I were to see this at a store, I wouldn’t be interested; I don’t even think it would catch my eye. The logo of this brand looks like the logo of the supermarket “Giant”. Most Indonesian products lack on the design and even though the actual product is good, if the design is “meh”, not many people are going to buy it. This was a fun experiment though; I do plan on using this for a while longer J
That is it for my 2nd post, thank you all for reading and visiting! Much meggy love! ❤
