[SPONSORED] Products from Harmony Life

Hello ~ Today I came to introduce some products I received from Harmony Life back in May. I was contacted by them via email if I was interested to try out some of their products. I scrolled through their site and saw three interesting products and asked for those. I thought they would send me like one or two but they sent me SIX FULL SIZED products ! How great is that?

I received the products after one or two weeks or so. It was a rainy day and the packaging had gotten some damage during the shipping. One of the products had opened and leaked a bit so the whole box smelled very strongly and was wet partly because of it, partly because of the rain. Before I could take any photos I had to wash all of the products under running water. Aren't you curious to see what I got?

INSTITUT CLAUDE Bell RIZ-RICE Foaming Rice Cleanser (200 ml)

I know that rice is used in many Korean skincare products so I wasn't scared to ask for this duo. It's always a hit or miss when trying out new skincare products. I've been using this duo pretty much everyday ever since I opened them in the middle of June or so. I've now used about half of this cleanser. This is a soap-free cleansing foam and it STINGS A LOT when it gets into my eyes. Which happens to me a lot even though I keep my eyes closed when using this ://

It has a pretty strong, "rich, old woman" like scent to it. I can't describe the scent any better. The scent lingers on my face even after rinsing and toner. Now that I've reached the half point, the product is pretty difficult to squeeze out of the bottle. The bottle is quite hard plastic and I have to use all my strength to get the product out. I wish this was in a pump type bottle. The product has a 6M in it so I have few months left to finish the product until I have to throw this away.

INCI: Aqua (Water), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, PEG-7-Glyceryl Cocoate, Glycerin, Sodium Trideceth Sulfate, Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Cocoamide Mea, Sodium Chloride, Methylisothiazolinone, Glycol Distearate, Laureth-4, Cocoamidopropyl Betaine, PEG-150 Pentaerythrityl Tetrastearate, PEG-6 Caprilyc/Capric Glycerides, Hydrolized Rice Protein, Parfum, Citric Acid, Propylene Glycol, 5-Bromo-5-Nitro-1, 3-Dioxane

INSTITUT CLAUDE Bell RIZ-RICE Rice Toner (200 ml)

Every time I use the cleanser I also use the toner. I've almost finished the toner. When I received this it had leaked a bit as you can see in the picture above. I think my skin has gotten a bit better from what it was before I started using this duo. But then again, I can't say it's 100% because of these. This toner is supposed to even and shrink the pores as well as purify and mattify the skin. I can't really say it has done those but it definitely has brightened up my skin a bit. This one also has similar scent to the cleanser. This one also has the 6M in it.

INCI: Aqua (Water), Propylene Glycol, Hamamelis Virginiana Extract, Glycerin, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Oryza Sativa Starch, Parfum, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Bencyl Salicylate

INSTITUT CLAUDE Bell Masque Douceur Cucumber Smooth Mask (150 ml)

I know cucumber is used a lot in masks and cucumber itself can be used as a mask too so I wasn't too scared to try this one either. The mask is supposed to cleanse gently, absorb impurities and moisturize for a softer skin. This can be used for 12 months after opening. So far I have only tried this once so I can't speak much about it. I don't think it did anything special to my face. This one also has a really strong scent. The scent isn't that bad and reminds me of lemon.

INCI: Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Carbomer, Cucumis Sativus Fruit Extract, Polysorbate-20, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Triethanolamine, Parfum, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid, CI 19140, CI 42051, Sodium Sulfate, Benzyl Alcohol, Benzyl Salicylate, Citral, Linalool, Limonene

The products above are the ones I asked and below are the three other products I got. I haven't tried any of them yet so I can't say how they works. I will just write the names, how they're supposed to work and INCI lists.

INSTITUT CLAUDE Bell Hair Bell Shampoo & Conditioner (250 ml)

This shampoo and conditioner are supposed to promote hair growth by 123%. Sounds too good to be true. This duo is supposed to use on the scalp only (also the conditioner!). You're supposed to use them in every 2-3 days and let them both sit on your scalp for 3-4 minutes before rinsing. I have so many shampoos opened so there's no space in our shower... I will test these someday (when there's an empty lot in the shower) and I might write about these later if anyone is interested. Anyone?

INCI (Shampoo): Aqua (Water), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Cocamide Dea, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Hydrolyzed Keratin, Ovum Shell Powder, Alcohol, DL-Camphor, Methylisothiazolinone, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Pyridoxine HCL, Parfum, Citric Acid, Carboxymethyl Chitin, Propylene Glycol, 5-Bromo-5-Nitro-1, Nitro-1, 3-Dioxane, C.I. 42090, Linalool, Benzyl Salicylate, Amyl Cinnamal

INSTITUT CLAUDE Bell Hair Bell Gentle Hair Mask Intense Nutrition (500 ml)

This huge hair mask is supposed to make hair smoother, more flexible and easier to handle, moisturize intensively as well as promote hair growth. This is supposed to be used after the shampoo and conditioner to a towel dry hair. Leave on for 3-5 minutes and then rinse off thoroughly to avoid the mask from weighing the hair down.

INCI: Aqua (Water), Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Alcohol, Paraffinum Liquidium, Benzyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter (Shea Butter), Behentrimonium Chloride, Ceteareth-20, Cetrimonium Chloride, Quaternium-91, Cetrimonium Merhosulfate, Parfum, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Dehydroacetic Acid, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Sodium Dehydroacetate, CI15985, CI19140, Sodium Sulfate, Linalool, Amyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Salicylate, Benzyl Benzoate, Geraniol, Citronellol, Coumarin, Butyl Phenyl Methyl Propional


While I was scrolling their site I noticed that the site is written in somewhat weird yet understandable Finnish. I was a bit skeptical at first because of that and my first thought was that the company has something shady going on or something. The company is located in Lithuania and they mainly do business in Scandinavian and Baltic countries. They have a different version of the site for each country; NorwayLatviaLithuaniaEstonia and Denmark for example. I don't understand any of the languages so I can't say if they're also written poorly. Someone tell me?

That's all for this time. I decided to publish this one now to get this one done. I wasn't told to write about the products but I wanted to write about them anyways. The k-pop post will be done in few days so wait for that :) Bye for now ~
