(Sponsored Review) Neogence’s Extremely Off-Heads Serum

Hello everyone! I hope the week has been kind to you.. ūüôā

For me, it has been a rough week as i have¬†injured¬†my wrist and fell sick yesterday. Only¬†positive¬†thing that has brightened up my week will be improved skin condition on my jawlines.. This is due to the fact that for the past 10 days, i have used Aloe Vera Mask once every 2 days and applied Neogence’s Extremely Off-Heads Serum¬†2X daily.¬†To recap, SASA has sent me this product a few months back and Neogence’s Extremely Off-Heads Serum¬†is the special care product in the Pore Solution Series..¬†

Extremely off-heads serum

The EXTREMELY OFF-HEADS SERUM (15ml) contains a unique pore purifying formula which will clean and remove acne.. Together with complex acid to dissolve acne and witch hazel extract as a form of astringent, this serum will double up to control oil and control sebum excretion.

1

Main ingredients used in this serum will be Glycacid, Mandelic Acid, AC. Net, Evermat and Watch Hazel Leaf Extract. This special combination of fruit acid will penetrate deep into pores to ‘soften and dissolve’ imperfections like dead skin cells, acne, pimples and clogged pores. At the same time, it will help to reduce sebum production, improve skin’s texture and close up pores.

2

Because it contains fruit acid, the serum is contained in a glass bottle so you might have to extra careful during handling.. The dropper makes application easy and more¬†hygienic¬†. As mentioned, I’m using this serum two times a day.. In the morning, I’ll only apply it on pimples and acne before applying my moisturizer.. At night, i’ll apply 2 drops to my chin and jawline area.. I did not apply moisturizer on my chin / jawline area as i don’t want to pile too much products on these sensitive areas.

3

The serum has a sweet minty scent and it feels a little¬†slimy to the touch…Due to the gel-ish texture, i feel that it is quite thick as it leaves behind a sticky film.. To prevent this, just massage the serum onto your skin in a circular motion¬†until the serum is fully absorbed..

4

Before using this product, I’m worried that it will be too harsh on skin as it contains fruit acid… However, the serum¬†doesn’t irritate my skin and it did not cause any peeling or stinging sensation (Despite¬†not applying¬†moisturizer)¬†… After application, skin looks softer and calmer…

5

After 10 days of usage, I’m pleased to announced these improvements:

1) The serum did a great job purifying my skin and ‘drawing out’ the white head and pus from my¬†inflamed¬†pimples / acne.. Because of this, the healing process is greatly reduced as I’m able to extract out the gunk so as to dry up my problem¬†areas. Again, it is not recommended to squeeze your pimples / acne but i just can’t help it.. ūüėõ

2) Because the serum helps to soften and removes dead skin cells, i find that the texture of my skin on the jawline areas appear to be more even and less dull.. Personally, i like the soothing sensation it has on my skin after application (perhaps this is due to the watch Hazel?)

3) The amount of acne and pimples have reduced after usage..  Skin on jawline feels less bumpy and existing pimples / acne are also less red and swollen . However, do not over apply as it might be too rich for your skin.. Once, i ended up with some breakouts on my chin area as i applied too much serum on it..

I’ll recommend this serum if you think that your current pimple cream isn’t doing much to dry up your imperfections… After using this serum, i have creased the use of pimple cream on my jawline area as this serum does a better healing job!

If you are interested in buying any¬†Neogence’s products, it is available exclusively in all SASA outlets...

Take care everyone! ūüėÄ

(Sponsored Review) Zap Zap Skin’s Imperfections with Neogence’s Pore Solution Series

Oh no!!! I really hate bad skin days!! Since one week ago, my period has gone haywire due to stress and hence the hormonal¬†imbalance has caused me to suffer from another bad bout of jaw-line breakouts.. Please don’t judge me after seeing the picture below ūüė¶

Disgusting i know.. ūüė¶

It’s not that my monthly facial and daily facial products doesn’t work but i¬†just can’t control the way my body wanna react.. To combat this, I have to incorporate more products into my skin care routine in order to deal with the existing pimples and also to control the condition… Few months ago, SASA¬†has sent me 3 products which will deliver pores solution.. Did not have a chance to blog about it until now as i¬†was busy with work, wedding preparation etc.. My¬†apologizes!

Back to the New Pore Solutions, this product range is the¬†latest¬†collection in the Neogence’s¬†family to target acne and pores issues.. According to statistics, ¬†it has been found that acne and pimples are the biggest skin care concerns of Asian women..¬†¬†Because we are living in the tropics, weather tends to be hot and humid so skin will become oily and pore¬†blockages will occur as a result.. Overtime, cornification takes place thus resulting in facial problems like heads or¬†acne.

To improve Oily Sheen Problem and to deliver Zero-Pore Skin, Neogence (the renowned lab-dermatological brand) has launched a brand new Pore Solution Series dedicated to improve the skin and remove oily sheen problem.. The Pore Solution Series targets to recuperating sebum, controlling germs, dissolving heads, and rebuilding pores. In addition, it will control sebum excretion and resolve cornification problem, and at the same time improving pore conditions.

Neogence Laboratory (which composed of a R&D team of dermatologists, bio-medical doctors and professional pharmacists) has found out that excess oil / serum blockages will produce larger pores.. When the skin secretes too much sebum, it will blocks the areas around the hair follicles. Overtime when it mixes with old horniness and dirt, pore clogging will worsen thus forming whiteheads / blackheads. When our skin is unable to excrete sebum successfully, pores will be enlarged and loses elasticity.. As a result, troublesome skin problems like acne, pock marks, and even pus pocks will result.

Neogence Pore Solution Series¬†has four main functions to address the above concerns by ‘Effectively recuperating sebum, controlling germs, dissolving acne, and rebuilding pores’.. The four functions will relieve skin problems like clogged pores, acne, pimples, enlarged pores and oily skin.

1

The four functions will control sebum excretion which completely resolve horniness problems. While it improves skin conditions,  they will also serve to moisten and sooth skin with its oil-free formula.

The ingredients which supports the four functions include (extracted from the press-kit):

Active Ingredient: SEBARYL (TM), EVERMAT (TM)

‘Recuperating sebum: effective oil-controlled formula, deeply constrain 5őĪ-reductase’s validity, reducing the activity of the sebaceous gland, in order to keep oil levels controlled over time.’

Active Ingredient : GLYCACID, MANDELIC ACID, EVERMAT (TM)

‘Dissolving heads: an oil-soluble and water-soluble complex acid which can soften horniness¬†rapidly, accelerate excretion of old horniness; can also effectively dissolve blocked heads.’

Active Ingredient : O-CYMEN-5OL

‘Controlling Germs: a regulating extract to control germs in order to continuously narrow pores; a regulating antibiotic to prevent¬†acne¬†and pimples.’

Active Ingredient : LARICYL¬ģ, WITCH HAZEL EXTRACT

Rebuilding pores: helping enlarged pores to recover their elasticity; strengthening and tightening enlarged pores.’

After clinical laboratory testing(tested over a four-week period),  it is tested and proven that the skin conditions have been addressed significantly.
