Salmon Bright Facial Cream by MUKU [review]

Hello everyone~ ^____^
Lately I've got another chance to try a skincare product from Thailand, and that's Salmon Bright Facial Cream by MUKU. After tested and tried for around 2-3 weeks, finally I have proper words to write~
When you read this post, I'm currently in Bali for Vacation XD I would like to say Happy Eid Mubarak 1435 H to all my friends and readers who celebrate it ^.^

So without further ado, let's jump to the main topic~

Salmon Bright Facial Cream by MUKU

It has pretty similar packaging with KISS Whitening Cream *_* It comes in vacuum-pump jar with quite sturdy plastic material, designed with nice gold and bright blue color combination. Bright blue fish scales are printed nicely on the outer surface jar. Its box also designed with blue patterned color :) Maybe next time I will make a comparison post of this Salmon Bright & KISS ^^
Content: 15ml

Packagingnya mirip abis sama KISS Whitening Cream yang udah pernah kureview sebelumnya *_* Produk ini juga didesain dengan bentuk botol vakum dengan bahan plastik yang cukup tebal. Kombinasi warna emas dan biru mudanya cantik sekalii. Ada motif sisik ikan warna birunya juga. Box nya juga didesain dengan warna biru bermotif :) Mungkin lain kali aku akan bikin postingan tentang perbandingan Salmon Bright dan KISS ^^

This Salmon Bright's box is slightly larger than KISS 15ml's box, but they exactly has same jar size.
Kotaknya Salmon Bright ini sedikit lebih besar daripada kotaknya KISS, tapi ukuran botolnya sama persis dengan botol KISS yang 15ml

Like I said before, it comes in vacuum-pump jar which is pretty hygienic. You only need to open the white rubber seal and press gently to obtain the cream ^___^ There's no direct contact!
Seperti yang udah aku bilang diatas, tutup botolnya ini pake sistem pompa vakum yang higienis banget. Kalian hanya perlu membuka segel karetnya pada tengah-tengahnya dan memencet area putih secara perlahan untuk mendapatkan creamnya. Jadi ngga ada kontak langsung dengan krim di dalamnya ^__^

Don't worry, you still can open the middle compartment of the packaging to see the leftover cream inside~
Tapi jangan khawatir, kalian bisa membuka packaging bagian tengahnya untuk melihat seberapa banyak sisa krim di dalamnya :)

Color & Scent
Color of the cream itself is very light blue, with a hint of turquoise tint :)
It scents nice, yet not overwhelming. My BF said that its scent reminds him with shampoo scent :p LOL.

Krimnya berwarna biru muda yang terang banget, dengan sedikit warna turquoise :) Wanginya enak tapi ga berlebihan. Pacarku bilang wanginya mirip sama wangi sampo ;p hahaha

Salmon Bright Facial Cream by MUKU

It has light texture, could be spreadable easily, not thick nor sticky :D
It doesn't gives shiny or greasy effect after application~

teksturnya ringan, gampang dibaurkan, ngga kental ataupun lengket :D
Ngga ada efek berminyak / mengkilap juga setelah penggunaan

PS: I found many typos here, LOL x_x 
I tried this product on my own skin and BF's skin for whole 2 weeks. Yes, it brightens my skin tone a bit, but unfortunately it doesn't really gives significant result to my BF's tanned skin T_T
Yes, it's quite moisturizing but I have to apply it quite thick for better absorption (it means the product will runs out faster, LOL)

Aku nyobain produk ini ke kulitku dan ke kulit pacarku selama 2 minggu. Yes, hasilnya sih produk ini berhasil sedikit mencerahkan kulitku, tapi sayangnya belum ada hasil yang signifikan ke kulit pacarku yang kebanyakan berjemur ini T_T Produk ini juga cukup melembabkan sih, tapi aku perlu mengoleskannya cukup banyak supaya lebih menyerap di kulit dan jadi lembab (yang artinya produknya akan lebih cepat habis, huaaa)

is he the one who named MUKU? Aku curiga modelnya itu istrinya sendiri :p *sok tau* haha

What it claims and my personal results:

• Anti-aging (neutral - takes a long time to test it)
• Skin moisture, reduce dry skin (yes)
• Skin lightening (not really - takes a long time to test it)
• Improvement of flecks, wrinkles (not really)
• Refines facial pores and a grow to your skin (no significant result)
• Improve skin elasticity and thickness (yes)
• Enhances skin texture (yes)

you might wonder why I wore same clothes in 2 weeks.. it was my pajamas, LOL XD

Does it works? It brightens my skin tone little bit, reduces dryness on my skin and kinda makes my T-zone less oily. It does good job as morning moisturizer, but not moist enough for night cream.

Ngefek kah? Produk ini berhasil untuk sedikit mencerahkan kulit ku, mengurangi kekeringan di kulit dan mengurangi minyak di area T-zone ku. Cukup oke untuk pelembab pagi, tapi kurang melembabkan sebagai krim malam.

sorry for the annoying watermark, I reupload this photo because someone (or more) has stolen my photo & cropped my watermark :/ so inappropriate!
sorry for exposing your pores, babe! >_< LOL

Does it works? There's no significant result in brightening factor. His pores also still quite visible. The good news is, his skin texture is slightly improved XD FYI, he has normal-combination skin type,

Since he's bad at paying attention to his before-after skin condition and unable to gives proper testimony for my review research, I only can observe from outer appearance of his skin '___' (I wonder why most of men can't be at least have some awareness in taking care of their skin x_x I have to remind him every night and morning, to always apply his skincare products, LOL)

Ngefek kah? Belum ada hasil yang signifikan dalam hal mencerahkan kulit si dia >_< Apa mungkin karena dia pakenya terlalu tipis jadi progressnya lebih lama ya? Pori-porinya juga masih keliatan. Tapi kabar baiknya sih tekstur kulitnya sedikit membaik dan sedikit keliatan lebih "terawat" XD Oh iya, jenis kulitnya itu normal kombinasi..

Karena pacarku ini kurang perhatian sama kondisi kulitnya, lumayan susah kalo harus menjadikannya kelinci percobaan skincare ku hehehehe.. Soalnya aku harus rajin-rajin ngingetin dia pagi dan malem supaya ngga lupa pake '___'

Salmon Bright Facial Cream by MUKU

Pros (+)
+ Brightens my skin little bit
+ Quite moisturizing
+ Nice packaging
+ Help to repair skin texture 
+ Doesn't break out my skin

Sedikit mencerahkan kulitku, cukup melembabkan, packagingnya bagus, membantu untuk memulihkan kondisi kulit, dan ngga bikin bruntusan.

Cons (-)
- Does nothing with large pores
- Need a long time use to see the brightening effect
- We should apply it quite thick, so it will absorbs better into our skin (it means the cream will runs out faster)
- Quite pricey

ngga ngefek untuk pori-pori besar, butuh waktu yang cukup lama untuk melihat hasil yang signifikan, krimnya bakal lebih cepet habis kalo kita mengoleskannya agak tebal, harganya lumayan mahal.


I think this cream will works best for everyone who has normal & oily skin type. If you have dry skin, you might need another lotion/cream to complement this Salmon Bright (because IMHO it's not moist enough as night cream). If you want to brighten your skin tone, don't forget to use this cream regularly (and thickly) to see the significant result :)

Thank you for reading guys! ^_^
Hopefully this review is helpful!
Happy holiday everyoneeee
