I’m sooo excited to share my current favorite moisturizer. I’ve always dream of a clear, healthy and glowy skin and as I aged I always worry on how my skin will look years from now. I started to invest on skin care products on my early 20s because my goal is to wear less make up on a daily basis.
I recently bought a new moisturizer from Alive:Lab and been using it for 10 days straight to see if the product works.
Active:Lab Multi Ice Milk
I’m not really familiar with Alive:Lab, I just discover them last month while I was browsing the best seller section of Althea.kr and fell in love with its cute packaging and label. Alive:Lab believes that perfect skin is essential that is why they been continuously studying cosmetic for ten years and developing products based on natural ingredients that has excellent skin improving effects.

I did a little research before I bought the product. Hope it can help you decide if this product is right for you.
- Glacier Water – is rich in minerals that protects our skin from free radicals. There is actually a trend in European beauty products that I think started last year? (Maybe? correct me if I’m wrong haha! I’m not really sure) A lot of their skin care products contain glacier water, some even sell it as a drinking water saying that its the real fountain of youth. A friend of mine introduce me to glacier water earlier this year she’s been using a gel type moisturizer and micellar water that contains glacier water but since I have no idea how to get or where to buy European skin care products, I was so happy that this product has it.
- Milk Extract – I really love products that contain milk because milk can naturally restore moisture to dry skin. I love using salt scrub with milk and I sometimes washes my face in the morning with warm milk. Milk is also great for calming irritated and sensitive skin.
- Milk Protein Extract – when I was searching for the products ingredients, this one catches my attention. Why? Because milk protein in skin care can give a lot of benefits. One is it can soothes irritated skin so this product is good if you have sensitive skin. Rich in protein because of amino acid content and it locks in moisture and hydrates really well so this product is good if you’ll use it on any season.
- Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green Tea) – is an anti-aging ingredient that contains a lot of antioxidant that is great for skin care. Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract or green tea extract can also improve sun damaged skin.
This is one of the product that is simple and catchy at the same time. girls love cute packaging and like me it’s always a plus point. The box is simple and has that label is written in large (cute) font. The color combination of the product’s packaging is great because it’s kinda like a mini milk box (remember when you were a child and your mom always pack you a lunch box with juice and milk box inside). The bottle is not the squeezeable (is this a word? hahaha) type of container (It’s like solid hard plastic container)( so its really hard to get the product out and I had to shake the bottle really hard. (like a ketchup bottle lol)
Consistency and Scent:
The bottle contains 125ml of the product, it has that watery gel like consistency that is easier for skin to absorb the product. As for the scent, well it didn’t smell like anything I imagine. Actually, it smells nothing like milk or sweet vanilla though It has that slight scent that is similar to products that has a common PH substance.
How to use:
Like how you normally use your moisturizer. What I do is I apply the product after cleansing and toning, I use this as my last step on my routine. I sometimes apply a second layer of this ice milk moisturizer but who can blame me lol.
The packaging is simple and cute but it would be better if they change the bottle into a tub or a squeezable bottle for easy consumption. I like that it has mild scent almost nothing at all and my skin can easily absorb the product. The product is light and easy to spread all over my face. I’ve been suffering from a bad allergy (allergic reaction caused by dust) for a week now and this product helps calm the redness on my cheeks and neck area.
This product didn’t gave me breakouts and my face feels as smooth as a baby’s bottom. My skin is really hydrated and didn’t expect it to be this good! Now I know why I found this at the best seller section.
