My Skin Journey With MY Medical Aesthetics | DiscoveryPICO Laser Treatment

Hello everyone!!!! It has been a while since i visited an Aesthetic clinic. As i am on back on medication, the unpleasant side effects are back! One of the major side effect is increased oil secretion! As you know, breakouts and blackheads will come hand in hand when skin is oily.. As a result, i have to battle with patchy skin, extremely oily skin and breakouts. Although i am going for regular facial to treat acne and sensitive skin, it is still not sufficient!! Decided to seek medical help and the first doctor that came to my mind is Dr Lim (From Trinity Medical). Contacted him and realized that he has just set up his new clinic at MY Medical Aesthetics. Roughly told him about my skin condition and he suggested that i give the DiscoveryPICO laser treatment a try!

On my first appointment, a detailed consultation assessment was done by Dr Lim to understand more about my lifestyle, skin history, skin issue and condition before customizing appropriate procedures for me. Dr Lim explained that he will recommend treatments in accordance to skin condition to address and target problem areas better! I love this personal touch as skin condition will be ever-changing due to external factors and stress level.

After chatting and accessing my skin, Dr Lim said that my skin condition has improved but due to the high sebum production (Due to the medication), it has resulted in oily and congested skin. He also said that my skin is sensitive as there are red patches all over. Hence, he recommended me to undergo DiscoveryPICO Laser Treatment to reduce oil secretion, pores size, acne, post acne marks and also to improve skin brightness and texture.

Sounds good! Dr Lim also made sure that my concerns are well taken care of and also ensure that i’m comfortable with the recommended procedures before bringing me to the treatment room.

How does the DiscoveryPICO work?

Being a fast, safe, less painful and suitable for all treatment, DiscoveryPICO uses the most advanced laser technology for the treatment of larged pores, decoloration of skin, pigmented lesions, aged skin and tattoos. DiscoveryPICO represents the second generation of picosecond lasers that due to its proprietary technology, is the most innovative medical laser available today in the market. It has an Nd:YAG double-wavelength laser source emitting at both 1064nm and 532 nm. Most of the aesthetic clinics in Singapore right now are using the traditional Q-Switched lasers that break down the pigmented particles in granules.

DiscoveryPICO works in Picosecond pulses which will be absorbed by the pigmented lesions and then fragment the pigments into thin “dust”, which is easier to be eliminated by the body immune system thus more effective! DiscoveryPICO series can treat different tattoo colors, superficial and deep pigmented lesions by using Q-Switched and Photo-Thermal pulse emission modes, as an exclusive feature of this laser, with possibilities to treat aged skin effectively.

DiscoveryPICO series is indicated for the use of:

– Tattoo Removal
– Benign Pigmented lesions Removal
– Hair Lightening
– Skin Rejuvenation
– Foot Skin and Nail condition

A thin layer of carbon lotion prior treatment to enhance the absorption of the laser beam. Dr Lim told me that i might experience some purging (aka breakouts) as the laser peel will ‘push out’ impurities that are embedded deep within my pores. For my skin, Dr Lim will different settings with the DiscoveryPICO machine. The laser setting is important and the technique to do the laser also play a part to achieve good results (hence it is important to find an experienced doctor whom you can trust).

Firstly, Dr Lim used quasi long pulse 1064nm wavelength to heat up my skin to shrink pores and to reduce oil reduction. When the laser was administered on my skin, i felt heat and prickling sensation which wasn’t painful but just a little uncomfortable. The intensity increased when Dr Lim concentrated on areas whereby there was a lot of clogged pores. Still bearable!

Second pass, he used the Q-switch (nano second) to get rid of the carbon particles and death skin cells on the skin surface. The buzzing sound got louder but there wasn’t any pain or discomfort. Third pass, 1064nm wavelength (pico second) was used to even out the skin tone and reduce pigments. No pain and discomfort either! What’s good about the pico second laser pulse is that the laser is very fast and fine, leaving the skin have a pinkish tone instead of overall redness in Q-switch pulse in high setting.

To reduce the purging effect, Dr Lim also arranged for me to undergo LED pulsed light (LPL) treatment. He used 415nm wavelength blue light to reduce acne inflammation and bacteria. What a nice touch and this is the reason why i trust Dr Lim so much as i’m always in good hands! He knows what’s the best treatment and tools for individual condition!

Everything was done in about 20 mins and i was rather surprised to see that there’s no redness or ‘raw-sensation. As there’s no downtime, you can just resume your normal duty right after the treatment. Instantly, my skin felt smoother to the touch, cleaner and skin tone is more even with improved clarity. Ahhh, the beauty of laser treatment!

Left – immediately after treatment Right – 1 hour after treatment

On the 3rd day onwards, i did experience some breakouts which i had already braced myself for as my skin is congested. Dr Lim did ask me to get an oil-free cream which helps to control breakouts which i didn’t (Stubborn me! I am going to get it during my next visit). Reminder to self not to scrimp on skincare as combination treatment with the right skin care will help achieve greater result! Despite the purging, skin is less greasy, brighter and more radiant. i also observed that my pore size has shrunk! After a week, the breakouts from purging started to clear.

Day 2 after treatment

Now it is 12 days post treatment and i felt that my skin appears to be healthier with reduce oil secretion, breakouts, less redness and more even skin texture (My post acne marks also became lighter!). The more controlled oil secretion has also results in lesser clogged pores and bumps. Overall, i felt that my skintone is brighter and so much more even (and radiant)! Even with light makeup (loose mineral foundation and blusher only), my skin still looks good and healthy! Can’t wait for the 2nd treatment next week and i will be back with more updates. Meanwhile, have a blessed week ahead! 🙂

All about the New and Improved L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Eye Essence!

L’Oréal Paris has recently launched another new and improved product from the Youth Code range, the L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Ferment Eye Essence!! To counter the slowing down of skin’s regeneration, L’Oreal Paris reinforced the formula of its best-selling Youth Code with Ferment Essence that activates youth with the renewing power of fermented seeds.

Traditionally used for food, fermentation is a process used to preserve it. The process of fermentation encourages the growth of good bacteria and other nutrients like B-vitamins, probiotics, Omega-3 fatty acids and beneficial enzymes, making the food more nutrient rich than its non-fermented state. One of my favorite fermented food has to be Kimchi! Consuming Kimchi helps to improve cardiovascular health and digestive system. Kimchi also contains loads of antioxidants, flavonoids and probiotic to aid with healing, combat ageing and strengthen the immune system.

The same process when applied to skincare, works wonders for the skin! Active ingredients are broken down to smaller molecules and better absorbed by the skin. Skin-loving nutrients like enzymes, amino acids and antioxidants are also produced in the process. Slowing metabolism is the key to aging skin. The Beauty of Fermentation!

The eye contour is often the first to show signs of aging as skin is the thinnest there. Similar to how the skin’s regeneration starts to slow down with age, the skin around our eyes suffer the same fate. When its self repairing abilities gradually weakens, fine lines, dark circles and eye bags become more visible

After the launch of the iconic Youth Code Ferment Essence in its improved formula, L’Oreal Paris now infuses the same highly concentrated ferment essence into an eye essence. Do you know that the Ferment Essence from the Youth Code range is extracted using ultrasonic extracting technique so that it stays in pure form at 98% concentration? The Youth Code Ferment Eye Essence contains 98% pure ferment essence and triple action applicator for bigger, brighter eyes. With 98% pure ferment to activate youth, eyes stays hydrated, smooth and depuffed.

The Ferment Essence innovative triple-action applicator made Youth Code Ferment Eye Essence special from many eye products in the market.

The 98% Pure Ferment Essence makes use of the renewing power of the fermented seeds to activate youth by boosting skin’s renewal and strengthening the skin’s natural barrier. Drop after drop, the skin around the eye contour feels smoother, firmer, more hydrated, more luminous and less puffy

Next, the innovative triple-action applicator helps to rejuvenate the eye contour, lighten dark circles, depuff eye bags and fade fine lines. The applicator is designed with Triple Beads and the strainless steel massage beads allow for point to point massage around the eye contour to smooth fine lines. The stainless steel also works to cool the eye area by 3 degree to create a relaxing sensation and reduce puffiness around the eye contour. Not only that, the elastic applicator flexes up to 15 degree to that it applies pressure delicately with ease.

I really like how easy it is to apply this eye product with the innovative triple-action applicator. The Youth Code Ferment Eye Essence is packaged in a classy and sturdy glass container and with each dip, it dispense the right amount of product with each dip.  The eye essence is fragrance-free and the texture is liquid (but not watery so you need not worry about application being messy). It is very light and it gets absorbed instantly. I really LOVE how my eye area felt soothing and refreshing due to the applicator. Another plus point is that the applicator helps to massage tired eyes gently. There’s no adverse reactions like stinging sensation, itchiness, oil seeds and itchiness during / after application. After using it for one week plus, i felt that my under eye area appears to be more hydrated, smoother and less patchy.. As such, it looks more supple and brighter. Been sleeping late recently and hence my dark eye circles are still there! It does seems to reduce puffiness so i don’t look tired and fatigued. Overall, i have enjoyed using the Youth Code Ferment Eye Essence and will highly recommend it if you are looking for an affordable yet effective eye product.

Will end the post on how you can achieve bigger, brighter eyes with an eye massage routine using the The Youth Code Ferment Eye Essence:

Lighten Dark Circles: Massage in small circular motions under the eye to boost absorption

Depuff Eye Bags:  Apply slight pressure three times on the following 6 points to relieve fatigue around the eyes

Fade Fine Lines: Massage the undereyes and along the crows feet area as depicted to soften fine lines

The L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Range retails at $38.90 and is available at all leading Watsons, Guardian, Unity Stores and Major Super / Hyper Markets.

MY SKIN JOURNEY WITH ANNABELLE SKIN | Aventurine Stress Release Treatment

Hello everyone, it has been months since my last skin update. I’m still going to Annabelle Skin religiously every month and during the last visit, i have tried the new Aventurine Stress Release Treatment that incorporates the product from the renewed »BioClassica« line.

Founded in 1994, Annabelle Skin aims to serve as the trusted skin and body care companion to its clients as they go through different stages in life by providing quality treatments, effective results and personalized service. Annabelle Skin strongly believes that everyone’s skin condition is unique. Each skin and body treatment will be customized accordingly with the combination of skillful manual methods with advanced scientific beauty technology, using high quality products made with natural ingredients from Europe to produce the best and most effective results.

Not sure if you realized but Annabelle Salon has also underwent a makeover recently! I’m loving the clean and chic modern english deco and furnishing!! As usual, everyone at Annabelle Skin are friendly and will put you at ease when you enter the salon.. So unlike the past whereby i will tend to feel stress whenever i go for my facial at a salon (that i shall not name) as they will never fail to hard-sell their products / treatments top-up. Over at Annabelle Skin, i will always walk out stress-free with happy and healthy skin!!

Dr.Belter Cosmetic has recently launched its renewed »BioClassica« line that addresses premature ageing for every gender and skin type. Award Winning Dr.Belter Cosmetic is a professional beauty care with natural and effective products made from selected, high-grade raw materials. Originating from Germany, the brand’s treatment range consists of 11 care lines for the optimal and methodical care of every skin type and age group.  Dr.Belter Cosmetic is inspired by the fascinating diversity of nature and constantly transfers this into new active substance formulations, using precious domestic and exotic botanicals. A special quality feature is the mineral and silicone oil-free basis of all skincare preparations which consist of 95-100 % natural ingredients.

The »BioClassica« line consists of 10 new products that promises effective and tailored skincare with visible results. It also supports concepts of green, fair and sustainable consumption – perfect for the ecoconscious and discerning. Based on Dr.Belter Cosmetic’s trademark GreenTec Concept, the »BioClassica« range is uniquely developed with an organic and vegan focus, and is free from raw ingredients such as mineral oil, silicone oil, parabens, PEG, palm oil and animal ingredients. Its research and development team has derived innovative formulas to combine aspects of organic plants with high-tech pro-medical active ingredients. The end result – natural biological products for beauty lovers.

»BioClassica« products are also mindfully formulated to counteract ageing, incorporating patented active ingredients like vegan silk-proteins, Glucolift Complex and hyaluronic acid. By supporting the skin’s vital functions, these elements keep the skin happy and healthy, allowing beauty lovers to safeguard their youthful glow.

As i have sensitive acne prone skin, Mandy (My beautician) has customized the Aventurine Stress Release Treatment for me which also consist of Carbon Detox.  This 90 mins treatment brings positive energy to the client through the massage with Aventurine Gemstone Massage Wands. With the incorporation of the BioClassica line products with vegan silk protein and golden seaweeds, it boost hydration and smoothens skin complexion. Lastly, Carbon detox frees the skin from toxin and increase skin renewal.

The facial treatment started off with Skin cleansing with »BioClassica« Velvety Cream Cleanser  and »BioClassica« Fresh Blossomy Tensum. Velvety Cream Cleanser is a gentle cleansing milk that contains precious botanical extracts, soothing complex and vegan silk protein that gently free the skin of makeup and impurities. Texture is creamy and this cleaner is good for people with sensitve skin as it does not foam (Hence not drying). After washing it away, my skin feels soft, velvety and clean. Fresh Blossomy Tensum is a fresh face tonic that regulates the pH-value of the skin to support its acid protective barrier. It comes with natural moisturising factors, sea algae and Baobab-Hibiscus complex that help to protect the skin’s DNA against UV rays. It also comprises anti-inflammatory properties that combats hyperpigmentation. In addition, the product also effectively regulates the activity of sebaceous glands to help prevent clogging and formation of blackheads. This toner has a gentle formulation and it doesn’t sting skin during application. Skin instantly feels fresh and refined upon each application.

As i have sensitive skin, the use of scrub is not recommended. Instead, Mandy removed my dead skin cell and soften my skin with »intensa« Enzyme Cream Peeling (combines high quality base from vegetable oils, soothing agents and a wonderfully fresh scent). It was left on my skin for 10-15 minutes while cold stream was blown to soften and hydrate my skin. Personally, i love the Enzyme Cream Peeling and even purchased it so that i can use it at home. This product helps with deep cleaning, dissolves epidermal horn cells enzymatically, promotes skin renewal, detoxifying. By using it every 3 days, it helps to refine pores and keep skin smooth and even.

Skin is smoother, softer and more even after using Enzyme Cream Peeling

On dry and cleansed skin, Mandy performed the Dr.Belter Silk Scarf Ritual on my skin. Through the Silk Scarf massage, a piece of silk is made tangible to skin with polishing motion. This ritual is said to promotes healing and promotes better penetration of ingredients into skin.. Therapeutic indeed!

Next, No. 11 Caviar-Oligomer Ampoule (a restorative ampoule that contains all biomolecules life needs; promotes biological cellular growth and enhances blood circulation) was then applied on my skin and neck. I have always love the ampoule range from Dr.Belter and they won’t sting my sensitive skin. A mixture of mask was applied after the ampoule- »intensa« Oceanica – silver detox algae mask (this mask is pleasantly and mildly stimulating during application, and its detox action – oligo-mineral concentrate binds toxins on the skin) & »Sensi-bel« Couperosis Mask (The scientific product formula with precious plant extracts soothes the skin, supports vessel elasticity, while protecting the skin from environmental influences and premature aging). While waiting for the ampoule and mask to work its magic, Mandy did the Dr.Belter Acupressure massage with Aventurine Gemstone Massage Wands to promote skin detoxification and reduce water retention.

To finish the facial, a Nourishing mask was applied! Mandy used the »intensa« Shake it! and Carbon D-tox Mask that contains alginate, active charcoal, detox complex with ivy and sunflower. This mask helps to moisturizes the skin and absorbs toxins from the skin’s surface.  The Carbon D-tox Mask is so far my favorite mask from the Dr. Belter range. It helps to draws out the impurities on my skin and skin felt extremely refreshed during application.

At the end of the facial treatment, BioClassica Fresh Blossomy Tensum, AquaSilk Serum and AquaSilk 24 was applied onto my skin.

The AquaSilk Serum is a hydro-active booster contains hyaluronic acid, vegan silk peptides and Glucolift matrix complex to instantly hydrate, regenerate, and tone tired skin. The advanced Cytorepair Peptide enhances cellular communication which accelerates the skin’s repair process. Skin will appear visibly firmer and more refined over time.

AquaSilk 24 contains hyaluronic acid, vegan silk peptides and anti-ageing factors to deliver maximum hydration for visibly smooth, plump and radiant skin. This is a product designed for users transitioning from youth care to active care, as it prevents the formation of expression wrinkles and loss of firmness in skin texture.

Both the AquaSilk Serum and AquaSilk 24 have light texture and it gets absorbed into my skin quickly without leaving behind greasiness and stickiness. Picture below was taken straight after facial. I have observed that my skin tone is more even, brighter and less red. Skin is less tight and there’s an after facial glow.

The  Aventurine Stress Release Treatment is a highly relaxing facial treatment as it doesn’t involve extractions (No pain! hehe!). Overall, i felt that the treatment leaves skin smooth, hydrated and reduce skin sensitivity. Skin tone has improved significantly in radiance / evenness and skin does not feel as oily. I always like it that oil secretion will reduce after facial so i just have to use more hydrating products to maintain it. This is how my skin looks 3 days post facial and my makeup goes on more smoothly and is less patchy.

The Aventurine Stress Release Treatment is available at SGD 238 and is suitable for all skin types; even sensitive and slightly dry skin, or skin with slightly blemishes

Ceramiracle First Light Ushers In The Second Coming Of Baby Soft Skin

Babies!!! I’m so crazy over them and yearning for one soon! Praying hard that God will bless us with one soon. 🙂 Meanwhile, i will just ‘molest’ my friends’ babies~ Baby smooth skin is another thing that i have always wish for. Do you know why babies have such soft and smooth skin?

In 2003, the Skin Sciences Institute of Cincinati Children’s Hospital Medical Center released a study on why infants, in spite of soaking in the womb’s watery surroundings for months, have near-perfect skin soon after birth. The answer is Vernix Caseosa – the thick, white waxy substance that coats babies for weeks before they are born. In addition, being sheltered in the womb protects their skin from any friction, damage, or sun exposure.

Recently, Ceramiracle has developed First Light THE SERUM that mimic the benefits of the vernix, created to usher in the second coming of baby soft skin. If you are new to the brand, Ceramiracle is an award-winning nutricosmetics brand based in the Santa Monica, California (USA) and specializes in anti-aging skincare solutions. This award-winning nutricosmetics specialist uses natural ingredients to create innovative ingestible and topical anti-aging skincare solution.

Inspired by a newborn’s beauty secret, First Light THE SERUM mimic the benefits of the vernix in strengthening the skin’s natural barrier and sealing in moisture to keep skin hydrated, resilient and youthful.

THE SERUM contains >99% natural ingredients, >95% active ingredients and is fortified with botanical extracts of Wakame cell culture, White lupin seed and Phytoceramides that combines synergistically to mimic the intense hydration and skin nourishing properties of the vernix. It also rejuvenate skin and restore it to baby softness smoothness. Lastly, it instantly revitalize and freshen up complexion.

An anti-aging essence suitable for all skin types,a few drops will instantly revitalize your skin, freshen and smooth your complexion. Use it on its own or with a moisturizer for firmer, radiant, toned and younger looking skin.

BENEFITS
– Instantly Hydrates
– Antioxidant Properties
– Smoother & Softer Skin
– Reduce Wrinkles
– Clearer & Brighter Skin

Packed First Light THE SERUM in my luggage during my August trip to Chiangmai and i have been using it religiously everyday since! My skin will always go haywire whenever i travel but after adding in the serum, there wasn’t any skin flaking (which is a common problem when i travel). There’s a few ways to use the serum and you can choose to:

For Regular Use – Apply 3 – 5 drops to cleansed skin and gently massage to infuse over entire face. Alternatively, mix droplets to moisturizer and apply as directed.

For Intensive Treatment – Apply half a dropperful to entire face and gently massage to allow serum to infuse

First Light THE SERUM comes in a classy silver ceramic packaging with a one click pump applicator which allows convenient and hygienic application. Will apply this serum before the use of moistuizer in the morning. 2 clicks of the applicator will collect the right amount of serum to cover my entire face and neck area. It is recommended to warm the serum on your palm first before application but i personally prefer to apply it directly on my skin. THE SERUM has a watery phytosqualane based texture and upon application, skin will feel oily and has a slight sheen at first (like what you see below). But once it gets absorbed by my skin (IMO, very fast!), the shine and oiliness is gone. You don’t have to wait long before the application of moisturizer. If you have oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin like mine, there’s isn’t a need to worry that it will clog your pores. In fact, i am experiencing healthier skin with less breakouts ever since i incorporated this serum into my skin care regime. I will attribute that to better hydrated skin due to First Light THE SERUM which kept skin issues at bay! Besides well-hydrated clearer skin, i also observed calmer and more even skin tone. Skin is also more radiant, smoother and softer to the touch.

Ceramiracle First Light THE SERUM retails at $129/30ml and is available online and also at all Robinsons stores – The Heeren, Raffles City and Jem.

Dual Anti-Aging Efficacy with Revitalift Laser X 3 Anti-Aging Double Serum

Couple of months ago, i was sharing that L’Oreal Paris has tailor-made anti-aging solutions to target the specific skin issues faced at different ages. Do you know what you have to start to prevent skin ageing at the age of 25? I know, the truth hurts! From the age of 25, the skin’s natural protective barrier starts to weaken and signs of aging start to appear. Coupled with stress, poor diet and late nights, your basic hydration regime might not be sufficient to combat premature aging.

For the 25+, L’Oreal Paris recommends the use of the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X 3 range to combat against Premature aging!  Revitalift Laser X 3  is formulated for the young skin and this range promises to bring about visible efficacy of skin quality transformation. It targets lines, pores and skin roughness.

Revitalift Laser X 3 mimics the effects of a laser treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle.. After years of intensive research, L’Oreal Paris laboratories came out with this anti-aging skincare inspired by dermatological procedures. This skincare range contains concentrated powerful anti-aging active Pro-Xylane to provide triple action (Resurface, Correct Wrinkles & Replump) to improve skin’s quality.. This range contains 3% highly concentrated Pro-Xylane and it is proven to be able to correct wrinkles,  reduces fine lines, reduce pores visibility, increase skin smoothness and re-plump skin to increase elasticity.

Pro-Xylane is a naturally-derived ingredient from the beech wood plant. By penetrating the extra-cellular matrix that supports skin structure, Pro-Xylane can restore skin’s overall health and suppleness

Photo from Google Image

When it was launched in 2013, Revitalift Laser X 3 was the 1st anti-aging skincare range that was inspired by Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology for skin quality transformation. In 2017, a new innovation known as the Revitalift Laser X 3 Anti-Aging Double Serum is formulated to reduce emerging signs of aging like fine lines, enlarged pores and skin roughness. At the same time, it also strengthens the skin barrier and replenish lost nutrients in order to prevent future signs of aging.

With its dual efficacy in anti-aging that corrects first signs of aging and prevents future signs of aging, it is no wonder that 70% of women agree it is better than the leading 300€ anti-aging cream (Based on results on a UK Sequential Blind Use Test with 150 women over 4 weeks). 
Revitalift Laser X 3 Anti-Aging Double Serum is made and directly imported from the USA, Singapore is one of the first Asian countries to launch this latest serum! Lucky us! 🙂

Revitalift Laser X 3 Anti-Aging Double Serum combines two highly concentrated ingredients (6% Pro-Xylane and 2% Vitamin C) that combine at the last moment upon dispensing for dual anti-aging efficacy. Developed after 14 years of research and 30 patents by L’Oréal Paris Laboratories, Pro-Xylane is the key ingredient in the range that penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to correct first signs of aging like fine lines, enlarged pores and skin roughness. Vitamin C has anti-oxidant effects which boost collagen and protects the skin from daily aggressors that can cause aging. It acts on the surface of the skin to strengthen the skin barrier and replenish lost nutrients that prevent future signs of aging.

This formula has been dermatologically tested to be suitable for sensitive skin and visible results will be seen in just 3 days.

Day 1: Skin is revitalized with moisture. Skin feels softer, smoother and more supple
Day 2: Skin feels noticeably firmer and looks more elastic
Day 3: Skin texture is resurfaced for visible radiance and luminosity
In 1 week: Fine lines and wrinkles appear noticeably smoothed

Because i have sensitive and oily skin which trigger acne and redness if i don’t take good care of them, Mandy (my beautician) will always remind me to improve on skin hydration!! One can never underestimate the importance of hydration as many skin problems will surface when skin being dehydrated.. When skin lacks moisture, it will turn dry and cause irritation (Hence the sensitive skin). When skin is dry, it causes more oil / Sebum to be produced so as to protect the skin (Body’s natural reaction and hence the oily skin + outbreaks). When skin is dehydrated, it will weaken the skin’s natural protective so signs of aging will also appear on top of the previous skin problems mentioned!

Nowadays, i will adhere to a strict skincare regime which focuses on hydration (which will also in turn prevent premature aging) and i’m definitely seeing tremendous results~ After cleansing and toning, i will use a serum religiously before applying my moisturizer. Do you know that serum is made up of small molecules and hence it will penetrate deeper into the skin’s layer which better delivers active ingredients into your skin? Likewise, the Revitalift Laser X 3 Anti-Aging Double Serum which combines two highly concentrated ingredients (6% Pro-Xylane and 2% Vitamin C) will penetrate deeper into skin to correct first signs of aging and prevent future signs of aging.

The Revitalift Laser X 3 Anti-Aging Double Serum comes in a dual-barrel pump bottle that will dispense two types of active ingredients (6% Pro-Xylane and 2% Vitamin C) at the same time. Personally, i will mix both up first before applying it onto my face.

Texture wise, both types of the gel cream are non-oily and it get absorbed into my skin rapidly leaving behind soft and matt skin. There’s the Revitalift Laser X 3’s signature floral scent associated with its other products for this serum and that’s another thing which i like for this range! It smells really good!! During application, there’s no stinging sensation (My sensitive skin is ok with it) and i love the fact how the serum left my face matt-looking. Immediately, my parched skin is well moisturized and soft to the touch~ Overall skin tone is also more even and calmer~ As it gets absorbed quickly, i can follow-up with my moisturizer soon.. Next morning, there’s no skin tightness and skin looks very supple. After using it for a week, my skin isn’t as oily and sensitive as before. Skin texture is also more refined and radiant. Looks like it is working very well to guard and strengthen my skin barrier 🙂

With both the Revitalift Laser X 3 Day Cream and Anti-Aging Double Serum Double Serum working hand in hand to provide double-action anti-aging efficacy, I can say bye-bye to premature skin aging!

The new Revitalift Laser X 3 Anti-Aging Double Serum Double Serum retails for $49.90, and is available at all leading Watsons, Guardian, major super/ hyper markets and beauty marts. For more information and updates, please visit L’Oreal Paris’s Website  or Facebook
