skincare review: EUCERIN

Hello readers ( i wonder if there is any)..

Being busy lately. This is the usual relationship between me and the blog. sekejap2 ada.sekejap2 takde.

ikut mood la. nk post ke tak ke (suka hati kau je) ...

 Therefore I should be thinking to change my blog name to : IWRITEWHENIFEELIKE. hahaha

joking.maybe i should make it longer.ok. whatever.

back to the topic.

ahaa.. I've done a post on Biotherm which i really222 like and effective for my skin. As I said before, quite pricey for a student like me. kena ikat perut for kulit cantik.. Sorry. I do care more about my perut than face.haha

So.. I've been using Eucerin skin products like 1 month. (I could not remember when) Maybe more than 1 month. The things that I am using now is:

1) Eucerin Dermopurifyer Cleanser
2) Eucerin Dermopurifyer Toner
3) Eucerin Dermopurifyer Scrub ( dont know the real name, and to go and find it out, quite lazy, SORRY misses)

and for moisturizer I decided to the pharmacist (the one that I story about in the last post) recommendation that is Neutrogena Hyroboost Gel.

The verdict:

1) Eucerin Dermopurifyer Cleanser : Used in the morning and night. Really nice. Give you the cleanliness you need. Cleanse off foundation (Sendayu Tinggi Mousse Foundation), loose powder (Sendayu Tinggi Professional Make up) and compact powder (Body shop, cannot remember the name, but its silver in colour with black at the bottom, round in shape and no refill) quite well. Maybe because I dont wear them like overly on the face and touch up all the time :P It also leaves your skin soft. Me likey.

2) Eucerin Dermopurifyer Toner: Wear it each time I cleaned my face in the morning and night. I really dont like the texture. Sticky. Feel like putting a layer of oily lotion on your face. But it is not oily like putting on a cream or what. It doesnt make your skin feel fresh. I think its because of the content containg PEG (polyethylene glycol). and from I learnt in the FYP lab during my diploma, it is used in a liquid that is used to be apply on windscreen of the car, to avoid blur of the screen  during raining) . Some more, in my company where I do intern, they produce Polyethyelene (without the gycol) it is a substance used to produce plastic products. So, can you imagine how is the feeling of wearing the toner. Feel like your face is covered with something. I DONT LIKE IT!

3) Eucerin Dermopurifyer Scrub : Used to use it every night as per suggestion by the pharmacist ( and I believed her as she has a flawless skin, untung la). But now has used it like 2 days once. Because I dont want to it like making my skin thinner or what. But to be emphasized that the texture of the beads, are not that big, so I think it is suitable for daily usage. and the result, it indeed reduces the tiny2 jerawat pasir or bintik2 on my forehead. Reduces my blackhead. Leave your skin softtttttttttttttt..

Next would the Neutrogena Hydroboost Gel: Trying this because I want to like eliminate the excess oil on my face. and tadaaaaaa~ the result would be. How am I going to say this. I do like the non-greasy, the lightness, the fragrance. I do feel as if my skin is now moisturized. Leave you skin supple and soft.  

BUT!!! I am still having problems with the small2 jerawat ( jerawat pasir org pggl) on my forehead. It's like reduced a lot, then it came back. and could not fight the oily part of my face especially forehead. I think oiliness on my nose and cheek reduces like a lil. My pores still large. But less blackheads or whiteheads.
It may be due to the oily, mcm pakai plastic toner. or the Moisturizer making my face oily. or the moisture is not sufficient. because I am now working in an air cond office. Then go the site, like super hot. So, maybe the moisture is stripped off.and some more the plant is by the sea. So. maybe need a super moisturized moisturizer. 

OVERALL VERDICT: EUCERIN would recommend for sensitive skin, or oily skin or just removed from acne skin. As for me, it doesn't irritates my skin. NEUTROGENA, also suitable for oily skin.As for me, it maybe due to the environment or food I take that makes my skin still oily. or the moisturizing effect it just not enough for my kind of environement.

I may have decided to try Nutox Oxyfusion Toner or Mist or Astringent. and maybe a night cream. Because,  I dont think my current toner is helping in improving my skin condition. and, a night cream, because I already have a day cream. Or to decide to buy a cream with sun block.hermm.. will decide it later. Need to check the budget first.. ^.^

Pray for the successfullness of my quest for the suitable products. :)

Note: kenapa tulis post panjang lebar boleh.Tapi nak buat report internship sepatah habuk idea pon tak keluar. You are in trouble missy.

Skin sharing

Oh ye. harini nak buat double post.hihih..

Biasalah perempuan.. badan kena jaga, kesihatan kena jaga, kulit muka & badan kena jaga.

Kat muka especially. Lagilah kena jaga kan.

So, today I would to do some sharing. On skin. I'll put it in point forms. Sonang nak baca kan. :)

My skin type (Jenis Kulit Saya) : 

  • Oily in the T-Zone and nose (berminyak di T-zone dan hidung). Lately oily on the cheek also (Kebelakangan ni, berminyak di kawasan pipi)
  • Just recovered from severe acne. left now is some pimple near the chin and jawline. and tiny2 zits on the forehead. (baru shj sembuh drp jerawat yg teruk.yg tinggal skrg cuma jerawat2 sekitar dagu dan rahang.juga jerawat2 kecil di dahi)
  • Very large pores. (Liang roma yg sgt besar)
  • Blackheads
  • Sensitive skin. Sensitive to sweat and hot environment ( the sun)

Facial/ Skin care that I'm currently using:

  • Facial cleanser 
 Night: Eucerin Dermo Purifyer Scrub
Morning: Biotherm Purefect Skin Cleanser 

  • Toner. Used it in the morning only. and when necessary at night.
Biotherm Purefect Skin Toner

  • Moisturizer. Used it in the morning after application of the toner. and on bare, cleaned face in the night
Biotherm Purefect Skin Hydrating Gel

So far, all this range I've used did reduced the occurence of new pimple/acne. The scrub reduces blackhead and tiny zits on the forehead. However, my is still quite oily.

Referred to a pharmacist in Guardian, AEON Station 18, Ipoh, she said that sometimes oily face maybe due to dehydrated skin (done some searching, indeed its true). Therefore the skin will generate more oil to replace the moisture. This maybe due to the environment (working by the sea) where the moisture is stripped off. 

I really love the Biotherm range especially the cleanser, really cleaned my face and give refreshing and clean smell (although, fragrance could be an irritant). But, due to lack of budget, I'm planning to change to another range that is cheaper. Currently I'm only using the trial pack version. It should be enough for a week. But, it still last for 2 weeks or more.

In the mean time, I've just started to used yogurt + cucumber face mask. I do this because I am suffering from sunburn. HAHAHA. yeah.. I've went to the site for a project and stayed there all day long for 2 days. and tadaaaa.. My face all red alreadyyy.. Wore the mask just now. As soon I woke up. hehe. (Forget to even wash my face first). Will do a review on it soon. After a week of using the mask. To see whether it could bring my burned skin to its original color or even better. ngeeeee~

See ya!`

VCO and acaiberry

YES. this is not the usual me. the one whom resist to take supplement or whatever they call it to help to reduce weight or anything.

but.. hey. i think i to give it a try. so..sesudah sampainya both of the supplements today. i will be start taking acaiberry from tomorrow and onwards.

for vco, i've taken it for a month ago, but need to stop for awhile due to lack of budget. ahakz.

some review for VCO. the VCO im taking is from Catalyst. I've heard of it from my friend longgggg time ago. but didnt believe it will be working and i assumed that was just another health food promoted through Facebook. but it is actually not.

VCO is consumed as supplement food. good for your skin. as it has anti-bacterial function. a lot of other benefits. im consuming this for healthier skin. tapi kalau dapat lain2 faedah. alhamdulillah.

i didnt hesitate to take this supplement because it is 100% virgin coconut oil. u know that things would not get wrong because it  is 100% vegetable oil i would say. but im not sure if it has side effects if we have health problems or anything. that need to seek for doctors advices.

so far the effects that i get:

1) less oily face
2) sistem kumbahan lebih baik
3)liang roma lebih kecil
4)jerawat ssh naik
5) kurang rasa cepat lapar
6)membantu mengurangkan berat ( i guess)

so..this time taking the new supplement.acaiberry. a powerful antioxidant.also good for the skin. and as a supplement to lose weight. but im a bit sceptical on this one because it is not 100% acaiberry extract. only 42%. other ingredients such as, chitosan, green tea..and others.. so.....wish me luck.

hope it doesnt give any side effects.

see u in the next post.revealing maybe the effect of the supplements. see yaa
