Changing Skin Care Routine is Tiresome!

4:09 PM

You have been warned. Lol. 

Salam and hello!

Why is it that I feel like posting up horrified faces to start my blog post lately? Hahaha.

As mentioned of the title, I changed my skin care routine again. Because of my previous effort kind of failed on me again hahahahaha. I ended up having dry skin top part near of my cheeks, near to the nose (covering with BB cream made it obvious -_- ), with acne scars on my lower part of the cheeks, visible pores on my cheeks and nose as well. I am actually going back and forth on posting my bare face with no make up just to show how it is but nahhh. Wait until I get the result I desire for my face I suppose. Haha.

First off, I no longer use Eskinol with anti-acne meds as it does nothing, other than drying my face up, making my scars red and pores visible. So after cleansing my face, I am now using this.

Product : Cellbone Pure Hyaluronic Acid Gel

Description : Pure Hyaluronic Acid provides hydration and binds moisture to the skin. The pure Hyaluronic Acid gel contains a high potency sodium Hyaluronic acid made from a microbial fermentation. Hyaluronic Acid binds vital moisture to skin to feel supple and smooth.
  • Restores skin hydration and moisture
  • Recaptures skin natural elasticity
  • Suitable to all skin types
Direction : Apply 2 to 3 drops on a clean, dry skin twice daily. Use after Cellbone Vitamin C Serum or Skin Rejuvenation Peel and follow with your favorite moisturiser.

Ingredients : Water, Sodium Hyaluronate

Size : 1 oz

Price : RM 100

To revive the inner layer of my skin, reason why my acne scars won't go away. And hydrates my face the whole day! No more dry feeling :)
People inject them into their body with these, as I heard from some >.<" not a very good idea for me. 

Secondly, my moisturiser changed too. No longer using Follow Me Mattifying Moisturiser because... I don't remember really. Maybe because I used the Cathy Doll Water Splash Essence instead? Hmmm. Yea if you are wondering, it looks somewhat like this:

Product : Cathy Doll Water Splash Essence

Price : Different prices by different sellers

Review : My personal short review on this, is that it only gives the whitening effect short-term. Not long term :) so you still have to find other alternatives to brighten your skin.

So now I am currently using this (thou I still use the Water Splash Essence after moisturiser).

Product : Suiskin's AquaQuench Total Moisturiser

Description : An intensive moisturizing soothing moisturizer that adds brightness and sheen to dull and dry skin resulting from insufficient moisture.

The deep-sea water and gigawhite complex penetrates deep into the skin to keep the skin moisturized. It also inhibits the activity of tyrosinase to prevent excess melanin synthesis. Lipid nano-water provides perfect moisturization by supplying the skin with effective lipids and cell-activating substances.

Nano cubosome marine water comfortably wraps around sensitive skin while lightening even the dark depth of the skin to leave the skin moisturized and bright. Enhances the soothing and whitening power to start anew the prime conditions of your skin.

Size : 70 ml

Price : RM 100++

Reason? I lack of hydration 8D I am trying to drink a lot of water per day but I tend to forget sometimes ^^; so this is to hydrate my skin and brighten my dull skin as well. And not to mention its brightened a little bit, I don't really need WSE now :)

Ah, I didn't mention any toners in between did I? They're still the same, just that I added on an extra toner lol.

Product : Cathy Doll Snow White -1c Ice Jelly Dancing Toner Spray

Price : Different prices by different sellers

Review : It feels cool once the cotton ball touches your skin hahaha. Loving the smell too :3 Supposely toners are to minimise pores but my pores are just too "glam" to handle. Hahahahaha.

May work on other people, I am still on the road to search for the perfect one :(

And now, the pore visibility. Despite using pore masks, I can't seem to take out the ones under the inner epidermis layer -____- that seems to be my current problem for now.

Planning to get these sooner or later.

Product : Suiskin Potency Pore Eraser

Description : This pore eraser instantly removes blackheads, whiteheads and impurities inside the pores to leave the skin smooth and compact. Regular application will prevent the pores from widening and stimulate the pore collagen to enhance the elasticity of the pores and constrict them gradually. Natural tannin substance from witch hazel and Castanea crenata will instantly constrict the pores and reduce their size.

Size : 50 ml

Estimated Price : RM 136

Product : Suiskin Pore Minimizer Spot

Description : Contained tannin natural substances including witch-hazel, chestnut skin etc give immediate astringent effects to shrink pores. Bio substances to effectively care elasticity and pores have an effect on the corium tissues around pores expanded due to decrease in elasticity to help to synthesize collagen and increase elasticity. Through purification of sebum production, cares pores relaxed due to excess excretion and balances oil and moisture to keep skin healthy.

Size : 15 ml

Estimated Price : RM ??

These two must be paired up to give the most effects. Hahaha. I don't really read reviews by other products, sometimes I just go for it.

I love this skin care, but it is quite pricey ):

And in an effort to make my skin better, am also using this.

Product : ePure Membranous Jelly Masque

Description : Developed by the renowned Dr Yulong Moy from the USA, ePure Membranous Jelly Masque is the first-of-its-kind facial mask with ACF (Active Cellular Factor), formulated for intense hydration, increasing the skin moisture by 30% - 50%. It works to restore and balance the skin by removing impurities like blackheads/whiteheads effectively and instantaneously. It also inhibits melanin synthesis, which lightens pigmentation, balances uneven skin tone and leaves your skin brighter and supple with dewy fresh vibrance.

Size : 30 ml x 6 pack, 250ml for jar

Estimated Price : RM 89.90 (6 packs), RM 129.90 (jar)

Review : As soon as it touches the skin, felt so cold. Haha. Love the weird gel texture :p does brighten up my skin after use, if used more often the blackhead will perishhhh. Hehe.

What else. Oh. Current supplement.

Product : Live-well Time-C 500 with Rose Hips

Description : Live-well Time-C 500 with Rose Hips contains vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, a water-soluble vitamin found in citrus fruits and green vegetables. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation. Vitamin C is a vital co-factor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.

Size : 60 or 150 tablets

Price : RM 60 (promotion price)

Direction : 1 tablet before breakfast, 1 tablet before sleep. Drink 3 - 4 litres of water per day.

Review : My pores did get smaller, and my acne scars improved. Just my lack of water intake makes it rather slow to give results. But my brother consumed this, and his face got wayyyy better. Envious! Haha.

Product : Emilay Whitening

Description : Details here because it's quite long ^^;

Size : 60 soft gel tablets

Price : Varies between seller, be careful of fakes!

Direction : 1 tablet morning, 1 tablet night. Drink 3 - 4 litres of water per day.

Review : Still too early to say :) Only ate this for less than a week, after changing from the Vitamin C~

And that wraps my post for today! Gosh. Sorry if its so damn long x: it became somewhat a review hahaha.

Til then, blurbers <3

  1. One shouldn't use whitening products if you still have active acne as it will make it worse. I used to have bad acne too so i understand your woes. I always use the aspirin mask&tomato mask to get rid of scars.

    1. Yea, I am aware of that too, that's why there are some products I no longer use because of that which I did not mention here (or else it'll be a longer post!).

      Ah, aspirin & tomato mask. That's a good suggestion. I did plan to get some until I finished up my other masks first >.< thanks for the suggestion dear :D
