Some of you may remember reading about Ah Yuan Soap on my blog a few years ago. They are a range of organic handmade soap originating from Taiwan. It was a very good range of soaps, for various uses although some people did say they weren’t used to the strong herbal smells. I personally liked them!
The brand is quite niche and a few years back, when I heard that there was going to be a skincare range, I was quite interested. Well, the day is here!
I had the opportunity to sample some of the key products from the skincare line in generous sample sizes and I must say, I was quite surprised that I liked it!
There are 3 lines available for different types of skin:-
- Alpina Speciosa – Dry and ageing skin – anti-aging
- Momoridca – Normal skin and brightening
- Bidens Pilosa – Combination to oily skin
True to Ah Yuan’s philosophy, the products are natural and herbal based. Even the names of the ranges are the latin names of plants which extracts form the base of the skincare range. I tried a couple of products from the Alpina Speciosa range for dry and ageing skin (ahem! moi :P). The Alpina Speciosa is a member of the ginger family, as I discovered later, which explains the spicy, peppery unmistakable smell of ginger in the products haha!
The Ah Yuan skincare products come in very sleek packaging if the samples are anything to go by! Sleek plain white tubes, with simple black writing. Very zen. Very Asian 😀
It is very pleasant, and I liked the textures. I’ll just run through them quickly, and tell you a little about each of the products I sampled so you have an idea of this new natural and organic skincare brand in the market
