My review on Beaute Pacifique, a Cosmeceuticals brand from Denmark

Last month I was invited to visit Beaute Pacifique , a Danish Cosmeceuticals brand in Robinsons, The Gardens Mall. One may asked me what is the meaning of Cosmeceuticals?

Cosmeceuticals are advanced skin care products that combine cosmetics with pharmaceuticals. They do not just improve the surface appearance of skin, like cosmetics do, but actually improve the biological function in the deeper levels of the skin using active ingredients. Often the active ingredients in cosmeceuticals have undergone clinical tests to prove that they actually work, rather than just masking conditions superficially. Cosmeceuticals are becoming more and more sought after in the skin care world, as there is far more substance behind their claims to improve skin.

I met up with Tilde who is from their Denmark HQ for a skin scan with their uniquely patented Ultrasound DermaScan™ machine. It is said to be the most advanced skin analysis machine in the world of cosmetics at present. The Ultrasound DermaScan™ machine is able to track the changes within the skin from the surface across the entire depth of about 30-mm deep using the very safe ultrasound technology. It reveals the skin’s condition, collagen structure and dermal fiber density.

Sounds really cool right, it's my first time coming across a skincare brand using ultrasound machine to scan our skin! I think this ultrasound dermascan works like how those doctor used to scan pregnant woman just that this scan about 30mm deep.... if its safe to use on pregnant ladies definitely it is really safe to scan on our skin!
Tilde scan on my right side of my face because she said Malaysian drivers are right hand driver hence the right side of the face is exposed more to the sun. When Tilde shown the result to me, I was quite sad with my skin check result. She said that the collagen on my right side of my skin is losing hydration & collagen due to constante sun exposure.

See lah how old is my skin according to the chart here.

Tilde shared with me that Beaute Pacifique was established in 1997, when Engineers Flemming K. Christensen and Gunnar Svendsen patented a system to deliver Vitamin A Esters deep into the dermis. Their extensive knowledge in the anatomy and physiology of the skin lead them to build a wide range of cosmetic products what as many beneficial properties as possible. They also started Cortex Technology which develops and produces advanced medical electronic equipment with the latest technologies for skin diagnostics. Their deep knowledge and passion lead to the creation of Beaute Pacifique.

In total Beaute Pacifique consists of 38 products within the category of dermacosmetic or cosmeceuticals. Dermacosmetic means beauty care which always fulfils the cosmetic (directive) but the effect is close to the border between cosmetics and medical remedies. Beaute Pacifique products are designed for the face and the body and are suitable for both both young and mature skin. Beaute Pacifique's A-vitamin products reduce age degeneration, sun damage and stretch marks. 

Tilde then recommended me a full range of Beaute Pacifique products that are suitable to treat my skin and I have used it for about a month for now. 

Beaute Pacifique Cleansing Foam (150ml for RM186) is designed for all skin types to cleanse without causing irritation or drying the skin. Fast working, water activated foam cleanser. It helps clear clogged pores to leave skin smooth and radiant. Suitable for both male and female skin, it may be used as a one-step cleanser both morning and night. Key ingredients include the gentle deep cleansing agents of potassium stearate, potassium myristate and potassium palmitate. Other ingredients include tridecyl stearate, tridecyl trimellitate and dipentaerythrityl.

Review :  I was advised to use a pea size of this cleanser. Though this is a cleansing foam but the product does not really foam up a lot. My face feels clean & soft after cleansing. I like how it does not dry out my face. 

Beaute Pacifique Enriched Toner (200ml for RM 186) for Dry Skin is a light, alcohol-free toner with an enriched, crèmey texture. Ideal for dry and sensitive skin, it cleanses while adding moisture to leave the skin softer and smoother. Key ingredients include glycerine to easily penetrate the epidermis for intense moisture and aloe barbadensis leaf juice powder to soothe and heal.

Review : I put the toner on the cotton pad before I apply all over the face. I could see the texture is quite thick however it does not leave my face greasy but quite soft & fresh. I was told this toner can be applied at eyes area too and works as eye mask too (by just putting toner on the cotton pad & rest it on our eyes) because there is no alcohol in this toner. It comes with strong fruity scent and I suspect its peach (looking at the ingredient) and might be a too heavy for some people.

Beaute Pacifique Defy Damage Skin Repair Lotion is an extra potent anti-ageing treatment; combining Vitamins A, C, E and Ursolic acid to fight wrinkles and sun damage and leave skin silky and soft. The formula also contains refirming extracts to reduce the visible appearance of facial blood vessels seen as facial redness. A light-textured serum, that suits all skin types and can be used on male or female skin. Key ingredients include squalane to restore youth, lemon extract to stimulate collagen synthesis, sodium ursolate and sodium oleanoate to rejuvenate ageing skin, tocopheryl acetate to protect from free radicals and retinal palmitate to deeply penetrate and stimulate the skin.

Review: This is a serum that comes in light yellow colour. The first thing I notice is the strong scent (very similar to the toner earlier on). The texture is really light and absorbs really fast into my skin. I barely can feel it is there anymore after a few seconds except for the scent which fades after a while. I felt that my laughing lines and fine lines stop going deeper which I am happy for it :)

Beauté Pacifique Oil-Free Moisturizer (40ml for RM270) features a light texture to give a matte effect. It works to minimise shine while providing a good make-up base that leaves skin soft and well conditioned. Ideal for both male and female skin, it is particularly good for younger skins requiring moisture without an oily residue. Key ingredients include aloe barbadensis leaf juice powder to soothe and heal, squalane to soften skin and restore youth, tocopheryl acetate to protect against free radicals and hydrolysed collagen and hyaluronic acid to build an invisible shield of moisture.

Review : This moisturiser comes in blue colour gel-ish texture with the same scent I mentioned earlier on. The moisturizer absorb soon after I dab it on my face. Though this is an oil-free moisturizer which gives a matte finishing, surprisingly this moisturizer is good enough to keep my face hydrated through out the day. I like how this can works as makeup base too . I do feel that this moisturizer is only good to use at the day time and a little drying for night time as I sleep in air condition room. For people with oily skin, I think it would be suitable for day & night time use.

Beaute Pacifique Super3 Booster (100ml for RM546) is based on their patented formulation, containing three different forms of Vitamin A to repair and rejuvenate the skin's collagen and elastin fibre structure. Strengthens the skin to full dermal dept. It works to reinforce the skin's elastic properties, making the skin less transparent and helps repair sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks. It can also be effective for the treatment of thin skin, for example on the back of the hands and for dry and brittle nails. Key ingredients include squalane to restore youth, retinal palmitate to synthesise lost collagen fibres and retinal acetate to rebuild and repair sun damaged and aged skin.

Review : This night cream is said to be their best seller in Beaute Pacifique. This yellow cream is thick in texture and I was advised to used this alone without serum at night. It was very moisturizing until the morning when I woke up, I felt my face feeling soft & supple (even though I used really little). And on those days where I had few pimples on my face (as it's time of the month) this cream seems to sooth the pimples and those wound heals quickly than before. I then realised this cream contains Propolis that fights active pimples and prevents the formation of scars. Thought I quite like this, my pocket isn't loving it heft price tag. But I do believe this huge tube of 100ml could last for very long as I need o use very little only.

Beaute Pacifique GelCoat-C Dry Air Comfort (40ml for RM321) is a super potent post treatment and anti-age serum that locks in moisture and reactivates underlying skin with specially selected vitamins and powerful antioxidants. Great for all skin types, GelCoat-C promotes collagen formation, building skin that's stronger, plumper and more elastic. Key ingredients include Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (a form of Vitamin C) to strengthen the epidermis, Rooibos antioxidants to prevent free radicals from breaking down important skin fats, and Hyaluronic Acid to penetrate deeply and add moisture.

Review : If apply nail polish we have a top coat, this GelCoat-C Dry Air Coat is the top coat for our skincare as it has to be applied after all those lotion, serum & cream. Not only it works like a sealer in my opinion where it would locks all the goodness & moisture that we had applied but this also is an instant moisture booster itself where we can apply anytime we have feeling of dryness (for eg during flights). It comes in crystal blue gel-lish texture where I can spread over my face quickly within minutes. I did a testing a while ago where I apply one side of my face with this product and another one without and go to sleep. I do realized the side of my face that I applied GelCoat-C Dry Air Comfort feel smoother. 

Beauté Pacifique Instant Hydrating Mask (100ml for RM 243) recovers lost moisture in dull, dry skin. It features moisture-retaining ingredients to hold skin hydration and form a water-retaining barrier. Vitamin A derivatives work to reduce fine lines and the signs of ageing whilst optimising moisture levels.

Review : It comes in yellow cream and I only need to apply a thin layer all over my face for 10 mins. I can see that my face was really smooth & it feel comfortable after I washed off. And it can works like sleeping mask too. I applied this 2-3 times a week, well this is my favourite product :)

Beauté Pacifique X-tra Dry Skin Fix (120ml for RM 243) is a concentrated moisturizing and repairing crème that helps to maintain a high level of moisture throughout the day. It is reactivated by contact with water to maintain constant hydration. Can be applied at anywhere on

Review : I read that this is specifically designed to care for skin with extreme dryness and I did not think my face need this hence I applied on my my heels as it was peeling and from what I see the peeling seems to stop and it got better. I remembered Tilde told me that I could apply this as lip balm and I must say this is works really well as lip balm as it kept my lip moisture for hours. This is not ain't going to be your normal lip balm because this contains Vitamin A that will helps to reduce fine lines and signs of aging. I also pass this cream to my sister who has serious eczema problem, she feel that the products does keep her skin more moisture.

After a month of so using the above Beaute Pacifique products, I think their products does keep my face hydrated than before and my skin is glowing ( I think also because I have been consuming Imedeen since August) and I went back to Beaute Pacifique counter in Robinsons, The Gardens Mall to do the Ultrasound DermaScan again to see if there is improvement under my skin!

I was so so surprised to see the result! Huge improvement from a month ago! My skin structure is back to normal (i.e to what it supposed to be for my age). The white top layer is epidermis, collagen fibers ( green and other bright colours) are getting tighter and visibly more after a month of continuous using. Even though I do not see dramatic changes on my appearance, but I was glad to know the products was working well under my skin! Happy! 

Overall, Beaute Pacifique products are pricey but very little amount is needed most of the time, so one tube can last for quite long! Do note that all their products contains perfume (which was manufactured exclusively for them). The perfume manufactured according to the  European Cosmetics Directives regulations and Beaute Pacifique did not include the 26 allergy suspected substances is not in their perfume. Besides skincare, Beaute Pacifique also carriess body care & hair care products. Would highly recommend you guys to check out the Instant Hydrating Mask!
