The Plant Base AC Clear & Time Stop Skincare Review

The Plant Base skincare range

A big thanks to StyleKorean and The Plant Base for letting me try out the products mentioned in this blog as part of Try Me, Review Me.

The Plant Base is a cruelty-free Korean skincare brand that focuses on natural ingredients. These products use Plant Extracted Water rather than refined water. The set is best suited to those with combination and oily skin types, as it helps to clean oily skin while moisturising the dry inner skin.

The Plant Base have a number of patent ingredients that they use in their products, some of which can be found in this skincare set.

The Plant Base AC Clear Skincare

The Plant Base Clear Magic Foam A1+

The AC Clear Magic Foam A1+ is a cleansing foam that gently cleanses irritated skin with a soft and rich lather. It is suited to troubled skin, and combination/oily skin types. It helps to relieve skin, control sebum and improve skin concerns.

Ingredients

  • 44% Centella asiatica leaf extract – soothes skin irritation
  • Salicylic acid – removes dead skin cells

3x natural patent ingredients:

  • Natural Protector – made using fermented soybean, willow and portulaca olearcea for sebum control
  • Inflax – made from persimmon leaf, licorice, opuntia coccinel lifera and morus alba bark extract for soothing
  • Phyto-Oligo – made from aloe and hollyhock root extract for moisturising and soothing

My Experience With the AC Clear Magic Foam A1+

The foam is more like a cream foam, as it doesn’t get too bubbly, which I prefer. It cleans my face nicely, and it doesn’t cause me any irritation. The cleanser makes my skin so soft and clear.

After using, my skin feels clean, without being too stripped of natural oils. I choose to use this one in the morning or as my second cleanser. I wouldn’t use this one alone in the evening if I was wearing makeup, as it isn’t suited to using on the eyes.

AC Clear Toner

The Plant Base AC Clear Pure N Skin Cica Toner

The AC Clear Pure N Skin Cica Toner is for oily and combination skin. It improves skin texture, controls excessive sebum production, and balances pH level.

It is a calming toner that minimises irritation and soothes skin redness.

My Experience With the AC Clear Pure N Skin Cica Toner

The toner is gentle to use, with a mild, fresh and natural scent. The toner makes my skin very soft. My skin feels so much smoother after using and my skin tone looks more even.

Time stop ampoule

The Plant Base Time Stop Collagen Ampoule

The Time Stop Collagen Ampoule is a revitalising ampoule that deeply nourishes the skin and helps to restore balance. This ampoule can be mixed with essence or cream, or used on its own.

Ingredients

  • 76% Hericium Erinaceum (mushroom) extract base – revitalises and recharges skin
  • Notable ingredients include: Morus alba bark extract, opuntia coccinellifera fruit extract, licorice root extract, centella asiatica extract, aloe leaf extract.

My Experience With the Time Stop Collagen Ampoule

The Time Stop Collagen Ampoule sinks in quite quickly and doesn’t leave any stickiness. After using, my skin feels smooth and soft. It has a natural scent, which is pleasant.

The dropper makes it easier to take the right amount of product without directly touching it. It is very easy to apply, and a little goes a long way.

Within seconds, my skin feels softer and the ampoule is fully absorbed, so my skin doesn’t feel wet or sticky.

Time Stop eye cream and ampoule

The Plant Base Time Stop Peptide Eye Cream

The Time Stop Peptide Eye Cream is a revitalising eye product that helps to firm and brighten the skin around the eyes. It protects skin from harmful components and provides vitality to weakened skin. The cream contains Damask rose and honey to prevent the signs of ageing.

Ingredients

  • Rose damascena flower extract 36% – purifying, nourishing, improving skin texture
  • Honey extracts 10%
  • Peptide 10% – improves skin texture and condition
  • Plant extracts base

3x Natural patent ingredients

  • Inflax made from persimmon leaf, licorice, opuntia coccinel lifera and morus alba bark extract for soothing
  • Multi lamellar emulsion – strengthens skin barrier, helps the product to be absorbed, provides long-lasting moisture
  • AQPI – peptide that delivers deep moisture

My Experience With the Time Stop Peptide Eye Cream

The eye cream doesn’t really have a distinguishable scent – there’s a slight hint of aroma from the ingredients, but it’s very mild.

It comes out as a light, yellow cream, but applies as a more clear and watery consistency. The eye cream leaves the skin you apply it to a bit shiny for a while, but this does go away as it is absorbed. It didn’t irritate my eyes, and I also used the cream on my neck area too, as the product mentioned it’s potential for use on the entire face.

AC Clear skincare

The Plant Base AC Clear Magic Cica Cream

The Magic Cica Cream is an anti-blemish cream that helps to soothe irritation, balance imperfections and repair the skin barrier.

Ingredients

  • 55% centella asiatica leaf extract, green tea powder and patent ingredients rebuild and firm skin structure.

3x natural patent ingredients

  • Natural protector made using fermented soybean, willow and portulaca olearcea for sebum control
  • Inflax made from persimmon leaf, licorice, opuntia coccinel lifera and morus alba bark extract for soothing
  • Neoendorphin a patent ingredient for wound healing and regenerating cells

My Experience with the Magic Cica Cream

The cica cream comes out as a thick cream, but despite the thickness, the cica cream sinks in quickly, and isn’t greasy or noticeable on the skin.

The cica cream smells like tea tree, which is one of the ingredients in the cream.

This one is probably my favourite product from the collection, it has done absolute wonders for my skin in terms of clearing it up and removing blemishes. I had a bunch of spots and blemishes before I started using this and I think this cream was the one that helped clear it up the most.

The Plant Base AC Clear Moisture Pure N Cream

The Pure N Cream moisturiser is soothing and calming, keeping skin fresh and moisturised all day. It is suitable for oily and sensitive skin, as it is a light watery-gel cream that balances moisturisation.

It is a vegan cream that has not been tested on animals.

Ingredients

  • 76% centella Asiatica leaf extract to soothe skin irritation.

2x natural patent ingredients:

  • Natural protector made using fermented soybean, willow and portulaca olearcea for sebum control
  • Inflax made from persimmon leaf, licorice, opuntia coccinel lifera and morus alba bark extract for soothing

My Experience With the AC Clear Moisture Pure N Cream

The moisturiser has a natural plant scent from the ingredients within, but it’s not too strong. It is soothing to apply, with a light and fresh feel.

Out of all the products, the moisture cream takes the longest to absorb and there is still a light tackiness on the skin a few minutes after applying. It leaves my skin a little shinier than I’d like, but it’s more of a healthy glow than looking greasy!
