Review: AFC Cho Beauty Inner Cleanse System

How Clean Are You Inside? Are your intestines aging faster than you are??

If you experience any of the above 3 symptoms, your intestines are aging faster than you are.. and you may need to change your eating habits, incorporate a more healthy lifestyle, exercise regularly and/or consume some health supplements that can help to cleanse and detox our bodies from within...

Introducing AFC Cho Beauty.....

AFC Cho Beauty is a health and beauty supplement that contains an advanced culture of patented heat-treated FK-23 and highly stable Bifidus Bacteria to cleanse and eliminate harmful toxins for a renewed sense of wellness.

Directions of use:

Content: 135g (4.5g x 30 sachets)

Price: $74.90 

My experience trying the product:

Upon opening the box... I was greeted with 30 individual sachets of AFC Cho Beauty.

Each sachet contains 4.5g of product. ( I really like the idea that the product comes in these handy individual sachets which is so convenient and easy to consume!)

There are 2 ways to consume Cho Beauty. I will be showing you the "Mix with Water" method...  Just need a glass of water (150-200ml), a spoon and of course a sachet of Cho Beauty..

^When I added a sachet of Cho Beauty into a glass of water (at room temperature) ..

After stirring the powder well in water, I got a glass of Cho Beauty drink... Although it is stated as grapefruit flavour, I find that it tasted more like orange to me.. The above Cho Beauty drink tasted like a diluted orange drink, the taste is still acceptable to me though. (of course, you can add the sachet of Cho Beauty into your fruit juice or honey water according to your preference)

Ok, I mentioned that there are 2 ways to consume Cho Beauty. I also tried another method, that is by pouring the powder of sachet slowly directly into my mouth and following by drinking water. I have to say consuming Cho Beauty this way gives a different taste as compared to diluting it in a glass of plain water. While the latter gives a diluted orange taste, the former gives a stronger sweet-sour orange taste. 

(One word of caution, please do not pour the whole sachet directly into your mouth in one shot.. sure will choke, do it in small mouthful, drink water in between and enjoy the nice orangish after-taste!)

I alternate between these 2 methods depending on my mood/situation. If I see any bottle of water around me during the time I want to consume Cho Beauty, I will just use the "pour into my mouth" method ..faster and I do not have to use a cup.

For the past 2 weeks, I have been taking 2 sachets everyday. 1 sachet in the morning and 1 sachet at night, on an empty stomach, and I do experience smoother bowel movement. I used to go to toilet once a week, but now my constipation problem has greatly improved, and I now find myself experiencing very smooth defecation on almost every alternate day.  Plus NO diarrhoea effect!

My digestive system has improved and my stomach is not so bloated as before. My big tummy is still present but its now slightly flatter, I guess regular defecation helps! One of my main concerns is to improve my current problematic complexion, and I am happy that Cho Beauty has helped prevent new acne outbreaks. My pimples are now in the healing process. 

Good health begins with our intestines, Cho Beauty Inner Cleanse System is an all-natural solution to flush accumulated waste for a true sense of well-being.

Price: 120ml ($6), 300ml ($13)

Directions of use:

Remember to rinse again on both sides of the contact lens before wearing your lenses:

Some of the contact lens-related eye infections is due to poor hygiene or/and improper cleansing, handling and storing of contact lenses, that is why it is very important to adhere to the cleansing regimen with three simple steps, no matter what brand of multi-purpose disinfecting solution you are using.

The rub and rinse regimen with multi-purpose disinfecting solution effectively kills 90% of bacteria and fungi while disinfecting the lenses by soaking them helps to removes any residual microorganism
  1. Rubbing – Using a suitable multi-purpose disinfecting solution (MPDS) , place contact lens on the palm and rub both sides of the lens from the centre to the edges gently with your index finger.
  2. Disinfecting/Soaking – Soak your lenses in fresh disinfecting solution for at least 6 hours. Lens case should be cleaned after use and replaced every 1 – 3 months.
  3. Rinsing – Rinse the lens with fresh disinfecting solution before wearing to refresh the lens surface and remove any traces of debris.


Prior to trying out RevitaLens Ocutec Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution, I have been using Bausch & Lomb daily lens cleaner for sensitive eyes follow by Solo Care Aqua All-In-One Solution. I just feel double cleansing will make lens cleaner and also bring longer comfort when I am wearing my lenses. Ok, to test out the effectiveness of RevitaLens Ocutec Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution which claims to deliver high-quality disinfection and comfort for the user, I just use it alone following the steps indicated on the packaging (as shown in the pictures above).  I can literally see the debris being removed when I rub gently on both sides of the lenses, now I do not have to go through the hassle to use two products to clean my lenses when one single product does the job perfectly ~  I do feel that it provides more comfort all day long, even when I wear my lenses for more than 8 hours almost every day. Superior disinfection, comfort and convenience all in a bottle with RevitaLens Ocutec Multi-Purpose Disinfecting Solution
RevitaLens OcuTec™ Multi-purpose Disinfecting Solution is available at leading optical and pharmacy outlets.

Try RevitaLens OcuTec Multi-purpose Disinfecting Solution today and experience the comfort of wearing perfectly cleansed contact lenses every morning till the night.. I can assure that you will love it as much as I do!

Now let me show you more about the product and tell you how it is like....

AFC Green Beauty comes in individual sachets (30 sachets in each box), very convenient and handy to carry a few sachets in our bags. We can prepare a beauty drink anytime anywhere.

It is mentioned that Green Beauty dissolves easily in hot or cold water .. I shall put that to test..normally powder do not dissolve well in cold water, no matter how well you stir the mixture..

When I poured cold water into my glass, I think most of the powder had already dissolved. I just merely stirred the mixture for 2-3 seconds..Green Beauty powder just dissolves that easily in cold water without any clumps floating .. and there is no residue of the powder at the base of the glass.. Amazing! 

What do you think this beauty juice will taste like by looking at these pictures? Green Tea taste? Not really a green tea! I drink green tea almost everyday but this does not taste like any green tea.. A hard to describe taste actually..It can be tasteless at one sip, but taste sweet at my next sip.. In fact, after drinking so many glasses- both hot/cold green beauty drinks, I still cannot think of any drink/ingredient that is similar to the taste of Green Beauty..A unique taste of its own! 

For those of you who know me or have been reading my blog would know that I have pretty horrible constipation problems for years.. and Green Beauty drinks really helps aid my constipation, inducing smooth bowel movement. After taking Green Beauty drink every night before I go to bed for the past 3 weeks, I go to the toilet for defecation almost every day. I did not experience any stomach pain nor diarrhoea effect! And I can feel my complexion more radiant these days. Guess the dual-action formula in Green beauty helps, in the way of detoxifying my body and nourishing my skin at the same time. Happy me!

Besides making a beauty drink with AFC Green Beauty with hot/cold water, milk, honey or even soy milk, we can also use AFC Green Beauty to make delicious desserts - simply mix 1 sachet of green beauty with warm soy milk/milk to make a cup of Green Juice Latte, add green beauty into your yoghurt/vanilla ice cream for a healthy sweet treat, or try a simple yet refreshing crystal green jelly with this recipe:-
