Haruharu- fermentation technology skincare

Before the invention of refrigerators, Korea developed and adapted fermentation techniques that enable food to be kept over a long period of time. In the past, medicines and cosmetics used by women at the royal chambers adopted the same method. With the growing trend of natural and traditions of the past, more cosmetics products are created using traditional ways for its established reputation of safe, non-invasive and harmless method.

Attended a beauty workshop by Haruharu which was very informative.

Over the years, one of the latest trend in skincare is fermented beauty products. The concept, originated from Korea basically involves fermentation of natural plant based ingredients such as ginseng, tea, flowers and herbs. Developed by Korea's top notch natural fermentation experts of OK Bio Lab, Haruharu debuts Malaysia with the Wonder Skincare series and Haruharu Prologue mask series that are formulated to suit the lifestyle of users and to address the common signs of dull tone, aging and dry skin problems that most women have.

Haruharu Wonder skincare series.

The fermentation technology adopted in Haruharu helps to lessen surface tension, breaks down the molecular structure of ingredients which makes the nutrients more concentrated to allowing better in-depth and rapid absorption into cells. Besides, this method also produces excellent moisture absorption from natural emulsifying agent that helps retain moisture and smooth texture of the products.

Haruharu also uses the patented natural liposome technology. Natural liposome is a patented biotechnological delivery system that transfers active ingredients that allows in-depth penetration into cells for better absorption.

Each Product series comes with a mask and a cream:

Wonder Maqui Berry Anti-Oxidant Cream
Infused with extract of fermented Maqui Berry for anti-aging and skin regeneration. Maqui Berry's antioxidant index is 400 times higher than any other berries. It activates vascular cells and has excellent skin regeneration function and antibacterial antioxidant effect. More on Maqui Berry below in the Prologue masks.

Wonder Honey Green Reparative Cream
Contains extract of fermented Green tea with Honey, Schizandra Chinensis Fruits Extract that functions as anti inflammatory, anti aging and skin regeneration and hydration agents.

Wonder Honey Green Aqua Bomb Cream
The Aqua Bomb cream is gel like and very hydrating. In fact, I think this is my favourite among all!

Wonder Honey Green Brilliant Cream
Brilliant as its name suggest, it has green tea and honey extracts for skin brightening, minimize wrinkles and hydration.

I realised after testing out all the creams, all of them absorbs very fast into skin and it's like you have not added any cream on face after 30 seconds. No sticky feeling whatsoever. Even when my hand has tried, tested and piled on creams after creams, it does not have a thick and sticky feeling. I was very amazed and very suitable for my oily skin =)

There is no day and night cream concept. As there are four different types of cream, you can also use 2 creams to mix at the same time or 1 cream in the day and another in the night depending on your skin's needs. They won't 'fight' with each other. The above travel size tube is RM59.00 each. Super convenient to just drop it in your bag while travelling for a quick fix =)

It also comes in a big coffee cup size of 90g for RM139.00. The Wonder series caters to mid 20-30s age group individuals and the Haruharu Wonder mask comes in an inspired take-away coffee cup design because most people drink coffee daily. The coffee cup symbolises their 'Daily life' motif. It is a brand aimed to coincide with the user's lifestyle. 

As mentioned, each cream series has their own mask.
It costs RM10.90 per mask sheet.

Tried the honey Green Aqua Bomb mask.

It has Moso Bamboo charcoal powder in the mask sheet which is environmental friendly. This one and the Honey Green Brilliant one has charcoal powder. I felt my skin super moisturised after that which is true to its name of Aqua Bomb. And good for Halloween too, no? Haha 

I even did an experiment at home using a piece of bread. This experiment was inspired during the beauty workshop. 

I spreaded Haruharu Wonder Honey Green Brilliant cream on one half side of the bread...

...and then with Brand X on the other half. 

Thereafter, I toasted the bread. 

The result!
I tore a bit of the side of the part with Wonder cream to mark it. As you can see, the one with the Wonder cream did not burn and was not brown. The other half with Brand X as you can see was brownish burnt. Which means to say that the Wonder cream protected the bread's surface even under scorching heat. 

The behind part was totally burnt without cream LOL Amazing right? Seeing how the cream protected the bread's surface gave me confidence that it can protect my skin too =)

Another series in the HaruHaru skincare is the Prologue Mask series. Super cute mask series with superhero pictures. 

 RM12.90 per mask sheet
Haruharu the superhero fighting away skin problems hehe

Incorporating world-class and environmental friendly technology infused with world's top 5 super food, the king of super berry from the Chilean Alpine as listed by The Telegraph UK in year 2017, Maqui Berry together with fermented honey and green tea extracts, the Haruharu skincare series complete these formulations that improves up to 8 times of the original ingredient's benefit. Alpine environment is the worst environment for all wild life. Only the Maqui Berry survived the heavy snowfall, cold wind and temperature differences up to 33 degrees Celsius. Hence why Maqui Berry is used in the Haruharu series.

It includes:

Maqui Berry Lifting Mask- 
Contains fermented Maqui Berry with antioxidants, reducing wrinkles and firming functions.

Maqui Berry Brightening Mask- 
Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, brightening skin and uneven skin colour for makeup

Maqui Berry Soothing Mask- 
Infused with fermented Maqui Berry for sensitive skin and wrinkles

Maqui Berry Moisture Mask- 
Best for dry, flaky, wrinkles, dull skin and revitalizes skin for a younger and fresher look.

Each sheet contains a bottle of ampoule (25ml). The mask is also made of ultra microfibre sheet, 100 times thinner than a strand of hair. It holds tight to all skin surface including tiny curves as you can see how the mask hugs one of the male blogger's face when testing out the mask hehe.

The Haruharu skincare product series are now available for sale in various SENHENG outlets such as in Pandan Jaya, SS2, USJ Taipan, Kepong, Bukit Tinggi and Setia Alam and coming soon in 2019 at selected Watsons store nationwide. Why SenHeng you may ask. We were surprised too when we found it that it's sold in SenHeng outlets. It is also part of their motif of 'Daily life' just like the coffee cup design. Naturally, we users shop for daily necessities in SenHeng and the brand wants to cater to those to provide them with a skincare solution in SenHeng. Cool right?
