Skin Life Foaming Facial Wash & Face Lotion Review

cow style

I'm always amazed how Japanese people's skin look so smooth and flawless. I don't know if it's Jakarta's humid weather or it's my skin but breaking out is nothing new for me. Even though I always use the same makeup routine everyday, and even I use hypoallergenic products. My biggest concern, aside of my oily T zone, is definitely my acne prone skin. Ever since my terrible breakout early this year, I've been taking care of my face really diligently every night before bed. My skin condition is getting better, but I still get acne at least once or twice a month. I really hate it when pimples show up on my nose especially. And then I was introduced to Cow Style.

COW BRAND is a long seller brand in Japan with a history of over 100 years. COW STYLE signifies daily life with peace of mind through Cow Brand products with the catch phrase "Life with Cow Brand Soap", and provides a lifestyle based on Japan quality (ease, safety, good quality) and Japan taste (material, scent, texture). One of the secrets of their quality products is the everlasting commitment to the soap-kettle saponification method, a soap-making technique that requires a lot of time and care, but rewards them with natural moisturizing factors that cannot be achieved otherwise.

They have many soap, hair products and cleansing products, but one of their well known product series is Skin Life Medicated Acne Care. I get to try two of the Skin Life products, which are its Foaming Facial Wash and Face Lotion that's especially meant for people with oily and acne prone skin. I've been using these 2 products for the past month religiously and now let me share the reviews with you.

Step 1. Skin Life Foaming Facial Wash

This facial wash is 200 gr and a little goes a long way. As you can see it's pretty bulky. The description on the packaging is all in Japanese but there's an english/Indonesian description on the wrap.

Best thing is: it comes in a pump dispenser! It's hygienic and easy to dispense the product. The sticker says it's oil free, and I failed to decipher the kanji but the big yellow words is  ニビキケア pimple care. So yes this facial wash is supposed to treat pimples and keep your face oil free.

This is one full pump. You can see the milky foam. Even without water, you get the foam on your palm.

All you have to do is spread it all over your face gently. No need to scrub and rub it roughly. And then rinse your face with lukewarm water. Afterwards, the face feels fresh, soft, and moisturized. Once rinsed, wipe your face dry with towel.

Step 2. Skin Life Face Lotion

The 150ml face lotion is in liquid form. It's my favorite product out of the two. It works like a toner and used after the foaming facial wash. The main ingredients are hyaluronic acid, fruit acid, and lemon extract. Hyaluronic acid is known to prevent the effect of aging, and also to heal wounds and burns, also as a moisturizer. I can smell the fruity scent when I pour the liquid on cotton pad. It smells like fresh citrus. 

You can either use cotton pad to apply on your face, or use your fingers and pat your face. I usually use the cotton pad as I like feeling the lotion on my skin, especially my acne. It has slight cooling sensation, and no it doesn't burn my acne when applied.

- Remove dead skin
- Brighten the skin
- Keep skin soft and moist
- Clean and slightly tighten pores
- Oil free
- Less acne

- Only available in selected stores
- Result isn't immediately


As I've been using these products religiously for a month, I can say that they help my skin to be have less acne than normally. It heals acne a bit faster, but doesn't fully make acne disappear overnight. The foaming facial wash makes my skin feel so soft while the lotion moisturize my skin, making it fresh while caring for my acne. All in all, the combination of these two products have made my skin better. I get less acne now, I just need to apply it daily, gently, and patiently. These 2 products have made it to my daily cleansing routine everyday. 

You can get Skin Life products at Guardian drugstores, GrandLucky, Papaya, and Yogya for reasonable price. Aside from Skin Life, Cow Style also have other products you might want to try like Bouncia (moisturizing body soap), Milky Body Soap, Shizen Gokochi Facial Soap (facial soap that removes dead skin and whiteheads), Additive Free Series (for people with delicate skin), and also QP Baby Care Series (baby soap, shampoo, and lotion). Follow their facebook and twitter for more information.
