MAKE PREM Review: Why We Adore It
MAKE P:REM's gentle formula with the use of EWG-rated ingredients caught our eyes when we first came across this brand.
MAKE P:REM products are all about effective, functional and safe ingredients. Their best selling MAKE PREM Safe Me line is specially formulated to match skin’s pH level of 5.5, which maintains skin's health while strengthening moisture barrier. In addition, they have recently developed other skincare lines like MAKE PREM Hydrate Me which is an ultra hydrating and skin plumping skincare line; Pure Biome which is their newest cleansing line formulated with fermented rice extract; Comfort Me which is their collection of mask sheets.
What fascinated us most is the use of EWG-rated ingredients in every make prem Australia range products. This benefits all skin types, especially for super sensitive and irritated skin, making us feel safe about what we are putting onto our skin. Environmental Working Group (EWG) has established the safety rating of ingredients, rating from 0-10 based on the results of research on 250 million ingredients. Make Prem ingredients stand between grade 0-2, which make them completely safe to use on sensitive skin, how impressive is that?
With Make Prem being a pioneer of clean Korean beauty that uses safe ingredients for all skin types, you may wonder is make prem cruelty free? You will be delighted to know that they are cruelty-free! Now before you get too excited to try this brand, lets us break it down for you. We have personally tested them, tried them and love them – and here’s why.
Mild Cleansing keeps your skin moisturised
As we mentioned above, the gentle and safe formula with EWG’s green-rated ingredients, is what makes Make Prem special. With that being said, their Safe Me. Relief Green Cleansing Water uses EWG’s green-rated ingredients with 82% natural ingredients to gently yet effectively remove makeup and impurities from skin.
Interestingly, unlike other cleansers with clear and water-like colors, this cleansing water comes with a natural green color. Now, don’t you worry – as it is the natural color extracted from Neem tree which is very effective in soothing and calming skin, especially for relieving sensitivity and irritation.
Alternatively, you can opt for MAKE PREM Pure Biome Cleansing Water which is made with fermented rice extract rich in probiotics, and PHA is added for gentle exfoliation effects. This gentle, yet effective cleansing water melts away makeup and impurities from the skin while unclogging pores to reveal smooth complexion.
Double Cleanse with a creamy, foamy cleanser
Don’t miss out your second step of cleansing as it is possible that there is still some makeup residue left behind from your first cleansing step. That’s why double cleansing is important in terms of keeping your skin well cleansed and healthy.
We followed up our cleansing regime by using MAKE PREM Safe Me Relief Moisture Cleansing Foam. This award-winning foamy cleanser creates bubbles that have a milk-colored, creamy texture that feels soft on skin. The abundant micro fine foam felt soft on our skin, which helps remove all the residues and impurities without stripping our skin. It also has a very soothing effect after washing off and helped restore moisture to skin.
When our skin is feeling a little oilier or when annoying blackheads start to show, we like to switch things up and use MAKE PREM Pure Biome Deep Cleansing Foam. This new facial cleanser provides a deeper cleanse of the skin while rebalancing oil-water levels without leaving any feeling of tightness after washing. The creamy texture glides on smoothly to gently lift away impurities and excess sebum, leaving behind a fresh and clarified finish!
Tone it up and prep your skin
If you have been a Make Prem Australia loyalist, you would have noticed that MAKE PREM Safe Me. Relief Essence Toner comes in a larger size than its predecessor. This alcohol-free, vegan facial toner is weakly acidic with a pH 5.5 which is similar to our skin’s pH level. Not only does it help increase moisture by over 400%, it is packed with skin calming properties to soothe and repair damaged skin barrier.
Feel safe of what you’re putting on your skin
Moving on, we plumped up our skin moisture with MAKE PREM Hydrate Me and MAKE PREM Safe Me Relief Watery line. These ultra hydrating, refreshing skincare line is made with Opuntia Ficus-Indica Root extract, otherwise known as prickly pears which has high water content. The addition of this ingredient into Make Prem hydrate me line provides your skin with an abundance of refreshing, lightweight moisture and instant soothing effects. You can think of it as having a refreshing drink for your skin! Perfect for the warmer months, but you can also use it all year long thanks to its long lasting hydration.
After toning, we applied MAKE P:REM Safe Me Relief Watery Ampoule, and followed with Safe Me Relief Watery Cream. The gel-like texture instantly absorbed into the skin and felt comfortable even underneath makeup to keep the skin plump and fresh! If you are looking for additional anti-aging benefits, try MAKE PREM Hydrate Me Micro Tension Cream which boosts skin elasticity to firm up tired-looking complexion.
In need of additional moisture?
Sometimes, our skin just refuses to cooperate and needs extra TLC. Apply two to three drops of this hypoallergenic, hydrating Safe Me. Relief Moisture Green Ampoule after your essence to help fortify skin barrier and enhance moisture level. Made with only 18 EWG green-rated ingredients, this soothing ampoule avoids using unnecessary ingredients that could cause irritation and damage to skin. It contains green propolis to provide all skin-benefits such as antioxidant properties, improving skin condition and texture, boosting skin moisture and strengthen skin’s natural barrier.
