28 Dec TOMARU Soulful Morning Drop Range Review

Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I blogged and as I’m typing this, I just realised how much I miss the sound of my keyboards click clacking away. Mind you, I’m a bit rusty but I just had to share this with you!

What the fork is Tomaru?

“TO”(towards) + “MARU”(top). TOMARU means creating a high beauty standard. TOMARU encapsulates all the goodness of Korea by using indigenous plants grown in the pristine environment of Korea’s provinces. TOMARU uses 6 native ingredients as a base for its skincare and the special ingredient that completes the formula will be stated on the product’s packaging, including the province of where it was harvested from.

TOMARU merges modern technology with traditional Korean guru recipe to produce a wide range of skincare that is gentle yet potent. Tomaru logo is spelt in English on top and stylized Korean characters at the bottom. Hand symbol represents the ‘power of local herb ingredients from Korea’. The capital letter “L” on the wrist means ‘Local’. The brand uses only very precious ingredients from Korea and processes those ingredients in their freshest condition in Korea right after harvest.” – Extracted from https://www.thefaceshop.com.my/tomaru

These are the 6 main ingredients that the brand uses:


Tomaru: Soulful Morning Drop

Fresh Toner

This is a mild toner that soothes face and controls the sebum level- basically the perfect toner for oily and acne prone skin! It is free from Mineral oil, Paraben, Phenoxyethanol, Synthesized organic pigments. However, it does have a slight scent to it which I don’t mind. You can either apply it with a cotton pad, or pat it onto your face if you feel like you need extra hydration. A bottle of 200ml retails for RM115.

Pro tip: Be sure to try it on a patch of skin on the inner, lower arm. Rub it in and allow it to dry on the skin. Do not wash that area of the skin for at least 24 hours and watch for signs of a reaction.

Power Essence

After toner, apply Tomaru’s Soulful Morning Drop Power Essence. This essence moisturises your skin and strengthens skin barrier over time. It’s not as watery as the toner but not as creamy as your typical moisturiser. Again, this has a light scent. I use about 2 pumps because your girl has got a lot to cover (big cheeks probs). It absorbs into the skin super fast. Is my skin thirsty or the product is super concentrated so it just naturally sinks into my skin? This 50ml bottle retails for RM185.

Power Cream Aqua Pump

As soon as I saw the word Aqua, I knew my dry skin would enjoy this. It’s super lightweight (perfect for the day in Malaysia’s weather), and even though it’s supposed to be for oilier skin type, after applying the essence earlier, it’s sufficient for my dry skin.

The naturally fermented Polysaccharide Polymer provides instant hydrating effects, cools down and soothe irritated skin. This 50ml tub retails for RM155.



Tofu Like Soft Cream Mask

THIS IS MY FAVOURITE PRODUCT FROM THE ENTIRE RANGE. Now that I’ve taken that out from my system, I can tell you why I enjoy this the most!

This is a special leave on mask that has tofu consistency texture with soy bean protein that helps to make skin complexion bright and clear. I keep it in the fridge and use a brush to apply it onto the face as my final skin care regime at night, then I got to sleep with the thin layer applied onto my face (avoiding eye area). You can wash it off as per usual when you wakeup in the morning. It really feels like tofu you guys which was freaky at first but my skin got used to it.

After a long day out wearing makeup, it’s nice to come home to this. The coolness from putting it in the fridge tightens pores, and it is so refreshing and satisfying to apply! The intensive nutrition from Soybeans helps to create clearer, brighter and tighter skin over time. This retails for RM90 for 100ml.


Dear Packer

Madagascar Clay Mask

I also got the opportunity to try out a clay mask that cleans pores with Masonioany component, a traditional skin care method from women in Madagascar. This ingredient helps to clear out your pores, yet keeps face moisturised at the same time. This product is free from tar dyes, artificial fragrances, parabens and mineral oils. It’s a hypoallergenic product which is meant for people with sensitive skin! I like how it mildly cleanses to remove impurities and excessive sebum caused by harmful external factors like dust, makeup etc.

I notice that it brightens the complexion too! After cleansing, spread a thick layer onto your face avoiding the eye and mouth area. I use a brush to apply this. Let it rest for about 10 minutes, go on Instagram or YouTube while waiting. Once the timer is up, wash off with lukewarm water or a clean face towel. 50g of product retails for RM120.
