Oil Blotters no more with La Roche-Posay’s Serozinc, 1st Oil Blotter Mist~

Hello my dear readers, Blessed 2017 and may this new year be a good one for all. 🙂 Hope everyone had a fun time celebrating X’mas and New Year.. During the X’mas and New Year period, i went through a surgery which i have been putting off for a long time as i hate the recovery process. :/ But Praise God that everything went on fine and i have understanding bosses and colleagues who covered my work when i was on leave.

As you know, walking after surgery can be cumbersome and painful~ Also, there’s no way that you can wash your face and take a shower until 24-36 hours after surgery. As i have sensitive oily acne prone skin, cleaning it with wipes aren’t sufficient and i cannot wipe off often due to skin sensitivity. Luckily, i have packed La Roche-Posay’s Serozinc into my hospital bag and this Oil Blotter Mist is God-Sent to keep my skin feeling happy and oil free during my hospital stay (and also after discharge!)~

La Roche Posay’s Serozinc is the must-have Skincare Sensation around the world. This purifying, soothing and mattifying Mist was initially launched only in France, but a flood of online posts and comments from consumers in praise of this product helped drive its launch in the UK, Italy, China, Korea and now Singapore!

I’m sure La Roche-Posay is no stranger to many and i’m an avid user of some of its products – namely Effaclar Gel Purifying Foaming Gel Cleanser, Physiological Soothing Toner and now Serozinc!

Highly recommended by more than 25,000 dermatologists worldwide, La Roche-Posay offers a unique range of daily skincare developed with dermatologists to meet their standards in efficacy, tolerance and elegant texture for increased compliance. La Roche-Posay skincare products are formulated with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water designed to achieve healthy skin, more specifically the ones with sensitive skin.

The products, developed using a strict formulation charter, include minimal number of ingredients to reduce side effects and reactivity. Additionally, La Roche-Posay products undergo stringent clinical testing to guarantee effectiveness and safety, even on sensitive skin.

La Roche-Posay skincare products are formulated with La Roche-Posay thermal spring water and Serozinc is also not an exception. Power packed with three key ingredients, this French pharmacy “Must-Have’ is a purifying and soothing facial mist featuring Zinc, La Roche-Posay thermal spring water and Sodium Chloride. All of which are specially designed to target key signs of oily, blemish prone skin. Ideal for even the most sensitive skin, Serozinc contains no parabens, alcohol and perfume.

Complementing the clinically proven Effaclar Range, Serozinc helps to regulate sebum and soothe acne and inflammation. Instantly, the skin is visibly reduce of shine. With regular use, complexion becomes clearer with less breakouts and inflammations, and tightened pores. Its mattifying properties also make it a perfect makeup primer or setting mist that enables makeup to last longer. It is of no surprise why Serozinc is a HG beauty product for many worldwide!

With the formulation of each product, La Roche-Posay will work closely with healthcare professionals to meet the needs of those with sensitive skin; be it fragile, dry, reactive, or chronic acne-prone, atopic or allergic skin types. For the launch of Serozinc, the team at La Roche-Posay has contacted Dr. Lynn Chiam, a renowned Dermatologist in Singapore to discover more on skin related issues.

Q: Oil Blotters are widely used as a quick-fix solution to remove excess sebum. But what typically happens after as skin becomes oily again very quickly. What is the rationale?

A: While oil blotting papers can have a temporary effect, they have no effect on the production of sebum. You may consider using a product that can suppress the production of sebum. A product that contains zinc can help in this.

Q: On the same topic of sebum, we want to delve deeper into the domino effects of having excessive sebum production. The release of excessive pro-inflammatory cytokines, due to excess sebum secretion, can lead to inflammations. When it interacts with p.acne lipases, an enzyme released by p.acnes, hyperkeratinization occurs. This then leads to formations of new imperfections called micro comedones which can easily escalate to acne problems

A: To answer this question, i want to talk about an effective dermatological active ingredient like Zinc. Zinc has anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to reduce bacteria, p. acnes, count by inhibition of the enzymes called p.acne lipases. Another proposed mechanism is also the suppression of sebum production by its anti-androgenic activity. All these help to regulate sebum and reduce the worsening of the acne condition.

Q: What happens if you suffer from sensitive but acne prone skin? Does this make it difficult to find the right skincare products to treat acne? What should he/she look out for in the ingredient list?

A: Try to avoid any products that contain perfume, alcohol, preservatives or agents that might irritate the skin. Every skin is unique so you have to be patient when looking for the right product.

Q: Acne is by no means an issue reserved for teenagers. We realized that even up to adulthood, more women are suffering from imperfections, breakouts and acne. For some, teenage acne simple continues into adulthood, while others see spots appearing for the first time past the age of 25. How different is teenage acne from adult acne?

A: While is it common to get acne in puberty, up to 25% – 40% of people still suffers from adult onset acne. Unlike teenage acne which is due to surge in hormonal levels, adult acne can also be related to stress and environmental changes. For women especially, the production of androgen hormones decreases over the lifetime. Thus it is not uncommon to have acne as well as dry skin in adults. In adults, the pigmentation left behind by acne may take longer time to heal

Personally, i dislike the use of blotters as it can only remove oil temporarily and after that, my skin will turn even oilier! Moreover, the use of blotters will spread bacteria from your hands to your face which results in breakouts~ Normally i will just leave it as it is and the layer of sebum on my face can be quite unsightly. When i first held La Roche-Posay’s Serozinc in my hands, i was quite skeptical that it will work as it sounds too good to be true! However, it has been highly raved by many so i guess it will work as promised..

Serozinc has the same packaging as the Thermal Spring Water and it comes in a 150ml spray bottle. Besides being an oil blotter spray, you can also use it as a toner or to set your makeup. When i was in the hospital, i was using this in between face cleansing with wipes to help with oil control and also curb sebum production. I love how refreshing when it comes into contact with skin and it perks me up instantly. After a few sprays, i will let it dry by itself and skin felt light + the greasiness has disappeared. As it does not contains alcohol, it is safe to spray it over all over your face (including the eye area) and it does not cause any redness / stinging sensation.

Have been using Serozinc for the past 2 weeks (about 2-3 times a day) and i love how gentle it is on my sensitive skin. It leaves my skin feeling soothe and refreshed instantly. Moreover, it will ‘remove’ the heavy-ness of greasy on my skin and leave skin looking matt for long. I’m loving it!

Experiencing The Wonders Of Fermentation with L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence

Few more days to the end of 2016 and it is scary how time flies!! In just TWO more years, i will be hitting my mid 30s and the reality of ageing has already hit me hard!!!! Few years ago when i was still having bad skin (Adult acne with dilated pores and dull / patchy skin), someone told me that i don’t look my age (in a bad way) and it can be really demoralizing. Ever since then, i vowed to take good care of myself so as to slow down signs of ageing and seems like my effort has paid off! There’s really no ugly women but lazy ones so we should all pamper ourselves better. 🙂

As you know, i’m doing regular facial (once every 3 weeks) which helps to improve the condition of my skin but in between, it is as important to have a good skincare regime to take care of skin. Recently, L’Oreal Paris has sent me a product to enhance the effectiveness of my skincare regime and i’m excited to share it with you! Say goodbye to fine lines, dilated pores, dull skin, loss of skin elasticity and clarity with L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence!

img20161228130840

We are all familiar with the metabolism of our body, but how about the metabolism of our skin? When our skin’s metabolism is normal, our cells function well – damage is repaired, cells self-exfoliate and collagen production stays constant. But like all biological systems, the metabolism of our skin inevitably deteriorates as we age. It is also slowed down further by external aggressors like stress and pollution.. As a result, skin loses firmness, skin texture becomes rough, and its barrier function weakened.

img20161228130938

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. Thanks to the ultrasonic extracting technique, the ferment Essence is extracted in the pure form at 98% concentration and infused in the improved Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence.

img20161228131019

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. Ahhh, the beauty of Fermentation!

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 Ferment Essence makes use of the renewing power of the fermented seeds to stimulate skin metabolism. Extracted at 98% purity, it is highly concentrated to accelerate the skin’s self renewal for bouncy radiant skin.

img20161228131223

Other Key Ingredients of the L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence include:

  1. Papain, a natural enzyme derived from papayas and pineapples that helps to mildly exfoliate the skin’s surface of accumulated dead cells
  2. Adenosine, a powerful anti-aging active, helps reinforce and re-organize the dermis, thus visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles

Results have shown that with 1 drop of  L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence, skin feels smooth and soft instantly. In one week, skin texture is improved and more refined. In 1 month, skin regains youthfulness and radiance. In addition, 85% women agree skin is smoother and more radiant in 1 week!

img20161228131217

The L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence has a sturdy glass container packaging with a pump applicator which makes application hygienic. Normally, about 2-3 gentle squeeze will obtain the right amount to cover my entire face & neck area.

img20161228131304 img20161228131342

Will use this Pre-Essence after the use of toner to prep my skin in the morning & evening before applying serum and moisturizer. The Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence has a pleasant citrus scent and it is extremely light weight. It gets absorbed into my skin instantly without being too heavy or greasy on the skin. Hence, i can layer on serum and moisturizer as per normal without worrying that it will choke my pores. The Pre-Essence also keeps my skin soothe and it leaves my skin ‘light’ and refreshed instantly. As you know, i’m always facing sensitive and dehydrated skin. This is why i have to use both serum and moisturizer to combat these two skin problems. With the Pre-Essence, i observed that it helps my serum and moisturizer get absorbed quicker. My skin also feels less tight and stays hydrated for a longer period~ I also observed that my face don’t get as red as before. 🙂

img20161228131400 img20161228131502

L’Oreal Paris Youth Code Ferment Pre-Essence is suitable for all ages – look forward to soft and bouncy skin for the 20s, clear and radiant skin for the 30s and firm and smooth skin for the 40s

All about Seatree and its Steam Emulsification Technique

Recently, M.O.S.S (S) Pte Ltd had sent me some items from a Korean brand  (Seatree) that they had just introduced into the market. If you adore eye-catching and cute artistic illustrations, you will sure love the product packaging from Seatree. Harnessing only the freshest raw ingredients from Mother Nature into the wide range of product types, Seatree was the talk of the town when they launched the brand in Korea with products adorning uber cute and artistic illustrations hand drawn by international and domestic artists (like Julia Grigorieva, Shin Hilda, Oh Sol Gil and Kim Hyo Jung). These colorful and artistically designed products were released as limited edition and were sold out quickly. Another main attractive point about Seatree is the adoption of the ‘Steam Emulsification Technique’ in some of its best-selling products.

‘Steam Emulsification Technique’ is using the extremely high temperature of steam during the manufacturing process to produce an emulsion. This unique technique is applied to level off the active component in order to harness the nutrients and maximize their benefits when incorporating into end products. As such, products will provide effective, absorbing and beneficial results. Seatree carries an affordable full face and body care line that caters to everyone. It includes sensitive /hydrating/ whitening/ antioxidant skin care range, hair care, body care, facial cleansing and color cosmetics.

img20161203175055

M.O.S.S (S) Pte Ltd has specially prepared some skincare and bodycare products for me to try. 

Seatree Collagen Jelly Cleansing Foam is an effective and non-stripping facial foam in a unique jelly texture to deliver a refreshing wash everytime. Harnessing the anti-aging power of Marine Collagen from deep-sea, it provides protective benefit by forming a barrier that also act as a support for elasticity. Benefits of marine collagen also includes hydration, antioxidant, skin repairing and delaying signs of aging. Like many Korean brands which emphasis on hydrating, Seatree is also not an exception. The Collagen Jelly Cleansing Foam promotes hydrating, soothing and strengthening with Sodium Hyaluronate, Green Tea Water, Aloe Vera and floral + botanical extracts.

img20161203175123 img20161203175136

The Seatree Collagen Jelly Cleansing Foam has a brownish transparent honey-like texture which works into very fine foam to cleanse skin gently. It does not contain fragrance which will not irritate my sensitive skin. During cleansing, it doesn’t cause any stinging sensation and after cleansing, skin does not feels tight. A big plus point is that it cleanse well but yet stays gentle on skin. Currently, my husband is sharing this cleansing foam as me and he loves it as well.

Under Seatree’s facial range includes the Mask series. I was given 2 different type of Masks and they are Steam Essence Mask Sheet and Snail 100 Mask Sheet to try!

img20161203175159

Steam Essence Mask Sheet is a moisturizing mask that contains Shea Butter and Sodium Hyaluronate to keep skin in a moist and smooth condition. It further equalizes the balance of the skin oil and moisture level in order to promote glossiness and forming a protective file to maintain skin’s health. Do you know that Shea Butter is very hydrating and has great regenerating ability? Shea butter also has antioxidant and anti inflammation effects. Suitable even for sensitive skin, the steam essense mask is mild and gentle and can be used everyday.

img20161203175212

The Snail 100 Mask Sheet is a reparative mask with 100mg of pure snail secretion filtrate to provide skin with moisture and nutrients, strengthening it against external stress and damages. Snail secretion is a colourless substance packed with skin-beneficial nutrients sich as Hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein, proteoglycan, antimicrobial and copper peptides. it is commonly used in cosmetics to provide hydration, increase suppleness, improve hyper-pigmentations and aids in the recovery of wound.

img20161203175223

Have tried the Steam Essence Mask Sheet few days back and i love how well the mask fits!  The Cotton sheet of the mask is strong and sturdy so i can use it with ease without worrying that it will tear..Due to the good fit, the mask is able to adhere to my skin better to maximize absorption of nutrients. The mask contains a good amount of essence and there’s  no fragrance which i prefer/ There’s no stinging sensation during mask application and it soothed my skin during application. Upon removal of mask, it doesn’t leave my skin red and there’s no need to rinse my face as essence from the mask does not leave sticky aftermath. After using the mask, my skin is less tight and skin is brighter and more dewy looking..

img20161203225013

The final item which i am featuring will make a great Christmas Present. Seatree Steam Hand Butter Cream (housed in a pretty container) is a nutritional hand cream made specially for people with dry and rough skin on their hands. Harnessing the nutrients from Botanical Butters (Mango and Sea Butter) using the ‘Steam Emulsification Technique’, the moisturizing effect can be fully maximized. The hand cream has a rich butter cream texture but with a quick absorbing formula that leave hands moist, soft and without stickiness.

img20161203175233 img20161203175251

Active ingredients of Seatree Steam Hand Butter Cream [Pineapple Mango]:

Shea Butter: Known as vegetable fat, Shea Butter has no allergic reaction and is commonly used for sensitive, atopic, and rough skin due to it capability to promote anti-aging, moisture retention and skin elasticity. Due to its exceptional moisturizing ability, it is a rich source of nutrients and supplies intensive moisture into the skin while forming a protective barrier to lock in the moisture

Mango Butter: Extracted from ripe mangoes in tropical region, Mango Butter has the ability to promote skin flexibility and protect it from sunlight. A rich source of Vitamin A and Keratin, both of which protects the skin from harmful external aggressors and is regarded as an exceptional cosmetic ingredient

Pineapple Extract: Contains a protease called ‘Bromelain’ which is an excellent exfoliant to promote skin turnover and renewal. Naturally rich in Vitamin C to brighten up skin complexion

Mango Extract: Rich in Vitamin A and C, Mango Extract can naturally alleviate freckles and facial blemishes, while providing sufficient nutrients to keep skin moist and healthy

img20161203175625

I have to say the Seatree Steam Hand Butter Cream’s packaging is extremely pretty! I’m going to clean and keep this container after i have finished the hand cream. Upon opening the lid, i’m greeted by the fruity scent of Mango and Pineapple (i like!). Personally, the skin on my hands is extremely dry as i will tend to over-wash my hands. Hence, i have to deal with painful cracked skin on my hands if i do not use hand cream~ The Seatree Steam Hand Butter Cream has a thick creamy texture so a small amount will suffice. Despite its rich texture, the hand butter cream gets absorbed instantly without leaving any greasy / sticky film. It leaves my dry skin hydrated and smooth to the touch. Love it and this is for you if you have dry skin like mine and you prefer a non-greasy hand cream! 🙂

After camping on both websites as i cannot make up my mind which to try, i have shortlisted 2 items from respective websites. From VēDO, i have selected a ‘Peach Vibrating Egg’ and ‘Frisky’ from OhhhBunny. Once i have placed my order, items were sent promptly from Hong Kong via registered post in a discreet package (Transit time is about 9 days).

img20161204155659

‘Frisky’ from OhhhBunny is a vibrating ring designed for dual use so that your partner never feels jealous of your bunny love. Designed to help the gentleman to stay harder longer, while the vibrating ears massage the lady’s clitoris with every sensual move.

img20161204160105

Features:

Powerful motors
5 vibration modes
One button easy control™
Extremely quiet
Velvety smooth silicone
Splash proof – suitable for shower
Rechargeable (USB cable included)
Running time 2 hour

Height: 8cm, Inner diameter: 3cm

new-folder16

Each ‘Frisky’ comes with a ‘Bunny Ring’, USB charging cable, Bunny travel bag and Manual. I like the fact that the Bunny Ring is chargeable and it doesn’t runs on batteries which can be troublesome (as i have to remove it when not using it to prevent any oil seepage). Frisky Bunny can operate for 2 hours when it’s fully charged.

img20161204160315

The charging status will display through the bunny’s beautiful LED signal. Red led lights indicates that Frisky Bunny is being charged. Green led lights indicates Frisky Bunny is fully charged and ready for use. To charge, just slide the cable’s DC jack into the charging hole of Frisky Bunny (which is located near to the on/off button. It will take up to 3 hours to fully charge your bunny.

img20161204173955

The Frisky Bunny has five hopping, ear twitching, body shaking, toe curling vibration modes, enabling you to unlock all your sexual desires. Frisky Bunny fits right in my hands and i cannot stop fondling its silky and smooth texture. Made from high quality medical grade silicone, it doesn’t compromise on health and safety! Frisky Bunny is also splash proof which means you can wash your clean your bunny before and after each use with a soft cloth, antibacterial soap and warm water. You can also use it in the shower but take care not to fully submerge the entire bunny into water

img20161204173657

Frisky Bunny come with a one touch button control at the side. With a single touch, control all your favorite toe curling modes. To use it, press the Power Button to turn it on and press the Power Button again to change vibration mode. To turn it off, just hold the Power Button for 1 second. Personally, we will recommend to slip the ring on before arousal if not it is impossible to put it on. Personally, i love the pulsation mode while the husband prefers the normal vibration mode. The one button control makes it very easy for us to alternate between the 2 preferred modes. The motor is also powerful but the vibration sound can be on the louder side if you switch it on a higher speed. Overall, it has been a pleasure using the Frisky Bunny as it hits all the right places. 🙂

new-folder15

Next up, i have chosen a ‘Peach Vibrating Egg’  from VēDO which is a Kegel Ball! Kegel balls,  are small weighted devices that can help strengthen a woman’s vaginal and pelvic floor muscles. Strong pelvic floor muscles help prevent urinary and fecal incontinence especially after pregnancy and Childbirth. Kegels helps to tone pelvic floor muscles and kegel exercise involves repeative action of holding your urine and letting go.. You also make use of devices to increase resistance to increase challenges which in turns better tone your muscles. Strong Pelvic Floor muscles not only prevent urinary incontinence but it also helps to improve your bedroom life. 🙂

img20161211174405

VēDO ‘Peach Vibrating Egg’ delivers discreet and deeply gratifying sensations. This remote-controlled egg allows you to change any of the 10 vibration modes with a touch of a button. Designed to provide you with pleasurable vibrations while building and toning pelvic muscles. The team behind VēDO has designed the Peach Vibrating Egg in such a way that it is well-designed, pliable and durable. Because users have to insert it into their most delicate area, the Peach Vibrating Egg is made of high quality silicone with a seamless finish so it doesn’t compromises on health/safety. Moreover, it is certified by the International testing laboratory
which means quality isn’t comprised! Device is light weight and waterproof with sound reduction system. It also comes with multiple vibration mode which suits different needs and preferences.

Now with the remote control activated, you can now switch between vibration mode. To turn off toy vibration, press and hold remote control button for 5 seconds. To turn off both remote control and toy, press and hold ON/OFF button on toy for 5 seconds.

img20161211174556 img20161211174619

The VēDO Peach Vibrating Egg has a velvetly smooth silicon texture which will make insection easy. It has the right amount of weight which will create that sufficient amount of resistance when you do your kegel exercise. Like what it promises, it has discrete quiet vibration.. As i have just recovered from mild yeast infection (main culprit is the overuse of Pantyliner!), i will start on Kegel exercise with the VēDO Peach Vibrating Egg then. Looking forward to it as a friend told me that it works wonders for her as compared to kegel exercise without any devices. 🙂 Personally, i felt that my pelvic muscles are less toned as before after pregnancy so i’m hoping that Kegel Exercise will help improve it.

Before i tell you more on my experience, i would like to share that one of my reader visited Annabelle Skin recently and she’s very pleased! This is what she has to say:

“First visit they can help to remove my GIANT oil clot near my nose area. I went to other places they always tell me I need to do laser or some other procedure to remove it but at Annabelle Skin they just remove it like normal extraction. Most importantly is they don’t hard sell during my facial. Everything is discussed after I’m done with my facial. Because they managed to remove my oil clots and I’m also looking for a good facial place, I decided to get a package from them. Really thanks to you for recommending this salon”

Dear reader (No worries, i won’t disclose your name!), you’re welcome and i’m happy that you also love Annabelle Skin as much as i do. 🙂

As mentioned, i went to Annabelle Skin lamenting that my skin is sensitive with bumps! Mandy  (My Beautician) took a look and told me not to worry as she will be able to ‘fix’ it immediately with the SlimLight Lymphatic Lifting Treatment. She told me she will focus on skin healing / detox and i will be able to see immediate results! Sounds really good and i know that i’m always in good hands!

The facial treatment started off with cleansing. As i did not have any makeup on, Mandy went straight into normal skin cleansing  with the use of Bio-Classica Velvety Cream Cleanser followed by Bio-Classica Sensi-Fresh Blossomy Tensumc to remove remaining residues. Next, intensa Soft Peeling was applied to get rid of impurities and dead skin cell. This product obtained a 2nd Prize at Beauty Forum, a beauty product rating contest by consumers in Germany. It contains aloe vera and anti-irritation complex with liquorice root extract. It exfoliates dead skin cell while caring for the skin’s comfort and hydration.

After steaming my face with cold steam, it is time for extraction! Over at Annabelle Skin, they do not promote squeezing to decongest pores. Extraction is done using a special extraction tool from Switzerland together with special technique to remove blackheads & clogged sebum. As a result, it is not as painful and red as compared to conventional extraction. This time, Mandy spent more time in extraction as i have many bumps and oil clogs this time. At the end of extraction, finally got my smooth skin back! As you can see, my skin still stays calm (not many red spots) even after an intensive extraction session!

After extraction, Mandy sterilized my skin with a high frequency machine to kill bacteria on the skin’s surface.. After which, she applied Dr Belter’s No. 7 Aloe Vera that has anti-inflammatory, anti-irritation, stimulate epithelium growth properties. A layer of intensa Hyaluronic Factor 5 – aquasilk hydroboost mask was applied onto my skin before the Cell activation with Beauty Equipment starts. The mask contains 5 factors to replenish hyaluronic acid for moisture-binding effects, including free and encapsulated form of HA to be stored in the layers of the skin and boosts the skin’s own HA production. This mask will also protect the skin from cellular stress and free radicals.

I have to say that the SlimLight Beauty Equipment is awesome! This equipment will
carry out lymphatic drainage and light therapy to activate lymph flow and reduce facial puffiness. The LED light helps to calm the skin and give the skin a more even color tone. It also enhances a V-shape contour effect. All i felt was vacuuming sensation and there’s no pain / discomfort. You can scroll down to see the instant results that i had after the treatment. 🙂

Immediate Result #1: Skin is instantly toned and lifted! Mandy worked on one side of my face first so that i can do a comparison. Picture on the left was taken before treatment and Picture on the right shows that the right side of my face is more lifted! The skin on the right side of my skin is also firmer and more bouncy!

Lifting and Firming effect!

Immediate Result #2: Brighter and Calmer skin. When Mandy passed me the mirror when she was done with the treatment, the first reaction i had was ‘ Wah, my skin is so bright now!’. Due to my spectacles, i had 2 obvious red marks on the bridge of my nose. After the treatment, the red marks are also gone! I’m very impressed!

At the end of the treatment, my skin is further pampered witah single application face mask infused with bioMatrix made of collagen fibres & Aloe Vera. This mask will treat irritations and provide intensive repair treatment making it suitable for damaged, irritated skin. Upon application, skin felt soothed and relaxed instantly.  Before Mandy left the room, she told me to use a richer moisturizer so to prevent oil clogs from forming. When i saw my post facial skin, i’m delighted to see that it is so much brighter and less patchy. There’s completely no trace of bumps and skin felt so smooth to the touch! 🙂

Like every facial, there will be mild purging (small pimples with pus) which is common as the facial + extraction will ‘push’ skin impurities embedded within pores to the surface. However, the amount of plunging reduced significantly with each facial i does. This means the condition of my skin is improving tremendously! After facial, i’m really enjoying instant results like that Mandy has promised.. Skin tone has improved significantly in terms of texture, sensitivity and skin does not feel as oily.  I have been applying richer moisturizer as per Mandy’s advice and i really do observe improvements. After 3 weeks, my skin stays 90% bump free and smoother. It is also less red and sensitive! Don’t know if you observe it but my pore size has also reduced significantly after all the facial treatment and care from Annabelle Skin. So glad that i don’t have to subject my skin to any laser treatment to achieve the same result:)
