CLIV, is not called “CLIV” well that’s what I thought it is … You can laugh at me no problem… In actually it is pronounced as CL4 (Cosmeceutical Solution Laboratories 4th Skincare), a professional Medical & Aesthetic Brand that provides a professional skin care customized for each skin type through the product in 4 stages. The 4 steps are Cleansing, Moisturizing, Activation & protection. CL4 upgraded from this 4kinds of traditional skincare which helps to manage healthy skin through customized 4-Step skincare.


Cremorlab is nature’s gift of science. Rich in minerals, including a high concentration of vanadium and germanium. T.E.N. gives clear, translucent skin and enhances firmness. The name Cremorlab represents a golden ratio between nature & science.


Step 1 : Remove Make Up/ Pre-cleanse

The first step which is the first half of the famous Double Cleanse method. Not only popular in Korea but around the world beauty gurus and beauty therapist uses this method to thoroughly remove all makeup, dirt and impurities deep inside the pores. Always begin by removing eye makeup and followed by lip using a gentle makeup remover. It’s crucial to use the correct eye and lip makeup remover so it’s does irritate your eyes and effectively melt away those waterproof mascara and eyeliner. Next is to use a cleansing oil for the face to draw out impurities within the pores. Important, make sure you emulsified the oil on your face before rinsing off if not the oil will stick on your face and build up over time which may clog your pore or will results in oil seed forming on your face. You can also opt for oil free face makeup remover like micellar water or any water based makeup remover if you worry the oil will remained on your face.

Step 2 : The Cleanse

The second half of the Double Cleanse method is to further cleanse the face using a mild cream cleanser or facial foam like how Korean Women do. Korean Women will usually massage the face gently to increase circulation which bring out brighter complexion. This step will remove away all the excess traces of makeup or dirt on the surface of the skin.

Step 3 : The Exfoliator

Your skin need a good exfoliating at least once a week to remove dead skin cells. Focus on the trouble areas like visible pores and blackheads on the nose!!!

Step 4 : The Refresher

Refresh and balance your face PH level using toner to allow better absorption on the next skincare step, essence. Toning also helps to tighten pores.

Step 5 : The Essence

Applying essence is often regarded as the most important step of the Korean Skincare Regimen. Essence is a nourishing liquid concentrate that enhances the skin’s cellular renewal process, leading to an increase in elasticity and firmness, as well as brighter complexion. Pour the essence onto a cotton pad and gently tap onto skin.

Step 6 : The Ampoule

Ampoule contain concentrated active ingredients with smaller molecules for a deeper penetration to target specific skin concerns. It works wonder like a treatment to combat skin problems such as sign of ageing, pigmentation, excessive oil production and etc with a faster and more effective results when used together with a complete regime.

Step 7 : The Sheet Mask

Ahh my favourite step among all and sheet mask is so convenient to use….Use them twice a week or more if your skin need more hydration. The sheet mask are soaked in nutritious ingredients which are then absorbed into the skin. Do you know that sheet mask will force your skin to absorbs the nutrients and moisture intensively before the product evaporate? Now you know!

Step 8 : The Eye Cream

Skin around our eyes are very thin and fragile as compared to our facial skin, hence it require gentle care. Eye are more prone to lines, wrinkles and dehydration.  Gently tap the eye cream or eye gel (depend on your preference and skin type) on your eyes using ring finger and gentle massage them on to your eyes from inner corner of your eyes toward temple of your head.  This is the step I am most lazy to do….. Guess now I have to be more determined to massage those cream on my eyes!

Step 9 : The Moisturiser
Now replenish your skin’s hydration and lock it in with a light weight emulsion. I have combination skin so I love gel moisturiser… It’s up to you to choose your preferable moisturiser type. Use your fingertips to lightly massage the product into your face and neck to promote blood circulation.

CLIV Mediclear Cream, RM 180 for 70g

Step 10 : The Night Cream

Finally lock the goodness of the serum or ampoules while adding moisture and firming effect (for anti-ageing range) using a night cream. Another option is using the sleeping pack, a jelly-like texture packed with moisture and many nourishing benefits, leaving the skin velvety soft and well-hydrated from the inside out.
For day time skip this step and replace with sunblock or BB cream before stepping out…

After all the 10 step, your skin should look dewy and glowing just like your Korean actress or popstar!!

“ Question: Do you follow all these 10 steps? Which is the step that you hate or always skip?”

For me I always skip eye cream and sunblock…Why because they leave my skin feeling sticky but I am trying to put on everyday!!! :-p
