  • Epiderme Hydration Replenish Starter Kit Review


    new kid on the block

    I received a Hydration Replenish Starter Kit (worth RM219) from Epiderme. It was a hand held size box with 4 travel size skincare items in it. On the cover of the box, the words optimum result in 3 weeks caught my attention. A starter kit that promises you optimum results in just 3 weeks of usage? interesting and challenging eh. Granted I have never heard of Epiderme before so I did a bit of searching online. Their website www.epidermeskin.com is under construction but their facebook is active. I do hope their website is available soon for us to read, there's not much information at their facebook but I did find out one good thing about Epiderme products is that they are all Paraben Free.
    Parabens are a class of chemicals widely used as preservatives in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. Parabens are effective preservatives in many types of formulas. These compounds, and their salts, are used primarily for their bactericidal and fungicidal properties. They can be found in shampoos, commercial moisturizersshaving gelspersonal lubricantstopical / parenteral pharmaceuticals, spray tanning solution, makeup,[1] and toothpaste. They are also used as food additives. - source wikipedia
    Professional skin care solution for skin perfectionist

    Brief introduction about the brand, Epiderme comes from USA and the brand has dedicated itself to the pursuit of creating innovative products by utilizing the latest and most effective in scientific 'green', organic, safe and natural ingredients and technologies that provide a perfect skin care solution. Combining Science + Beauty + Trust they promote optimum results to ever skin perfectionist.

    The Hydration Replenish Starter Kit contains 4 travel size products:
    • Hydration Cleansing milk 30ml
    • CPR Ocean Serum 10ml
    • Intensive Hyaluronic Moisturizer 15ml
    • CPR Ocean Mask 15ml

    how does it look like?

    Among these, the Intensive Hyaluronic Moisturizer is the most wanted product says Epiderme. It's a power moisturizer that protects and hydrates the skin 24/7. Formulated to lubricate and prevent trans-epidermal water loss and encourages skin's natural film forming and minimizes water loss caused by free radicals. Main ingredients are Sodium Hyaluronate, Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide and Frutooligosaccharides.

    Miu says: Smells like botanical plant ocean extract. Creamy, fast absorption but leaves a film like layer on skin and fingers. 

    How to use?
    Apply twice daily, morning and evening and avoid the eye area

    loving the milk cleanser! super soft after

    As usual a starter kit without a cleanser is no starter kit at all. Introducing the Hydration Cleansing Milk, a creamy thick milk texture product that gently removes make up. Rich and concentrated to improve skin extracellular matrix repair and reduces skin inflammatory damage. I have sensitive skin and cleansing milk is one of the best cleansers for my type of skin. Main ingredients are Yogurt Extract.

    Miu Says: You would think this is a moisturizer! but it's not. During application it feels like you're massaging cream onto your face and there's a film like layer on your face which disappears after wash, leaving your face soft!

    How to use?
    With tepid water lather between palms. Massage over face and throat. Pat skin fry. Use twice daily.

    anti-aging CPR Ocean Serum

    Next I was really happy that the starter kit came with a serum called CPR Ocean Serum. Formulated with 11 marine actives, this powerful serumcombination is to protect against UVA/UVB damage, combat free radicals, soothe skin inflammation, protect against MMPi (Matrix Metalloproteinase Inhibition), combat wrinkles and visible brighten the skin. It enhances ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) and cell turnover, plus promotes skin moisture and skin elasticity. 

    Main ingredients are Venuceane, Glycosaminolycans, Antarcticine Kepadelie, Undaria Pinnatifida (Wakame) Extract, Algowhite, Aldavine, Pephactive, Heliogard, Abyssine and Chondrus Crispus.

    Miu Says: Liquid texture but sticky upon application. Great for beauty sleep to repair your skin at night.

    How to use?
    Apply twice daily, morning and evening on whole face. Avoid eye area.


    Another favorite hobby of mine is to put on a face mask twice weekly. Hence the CPR Ocean Mask hit my quota for the week. What's CPR Ocean Mask? It's a powerful ultra calming treatment mask which can be worn after a treatment to calm and infuse the skin with anti-aging benefits. Enriched with algae which is proven for their impressive triggers of strengthening skin, firming skin and improving skin tone. Phycocyanins decreases inflammation of the skin. It is combined with blue-green algae which gives CPR OCean Mask its subtle, cue hue. Texture glue like substance (see pic no drip) that smells a bit weird (like ocean + algae). 

    Main ingredients are Algae Extract, Sea Buckthorn Extract, Seanamin SU, Spirulina Platensis.

    Miu Says: OMG? I felt this cooling sensation on my face after applying the mask! It's even more intense when you start washing your face. Feels like the ice cold sea water splashing on your face! Firms but is drying on my face. Use moisturizer asap.

    How to use?
    Apply think layer around face. There will be a cool sensation. Avoid eye area. Leave mask on for 15-20mins and rinse off with lukewarm water.

    I hope my review open your eyes on Epiderme and how their products are like. They are new in Malaysia and they have promotions and contests done on their Facebook. Do join to find out more information about Epiderme. The starter kit is not enough for more than a week's use. These are just a bird's eye view on what the products are like based on my first trial experience. I have sensitive skin around my cheeks and dry/combi skin type.


    1. Hi! do you any other organic brand like epiderme in malaysia? I mean with their own website and all.

    2. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and
      gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and
      screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
      ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
