Ume Skin Analyzer Review

Ever wander how is your skin condition? Is the skin dry or oily and izzit healthy ? Usually by knowing this, we can only determine what skin care products can help to improve our skin and have healthy skin. 

I know that my skin is very oily but don't know what's causing it. I can only check my skin condition with the skin analyzer machine at the skin care counter when I'm buying something from the counter from time to time. :( 

TODAY....HAHA..I going to introduce to you and do a simple review on a tool which I just bought..It's Ume skin analyzer. Its a small and cute tool that help me to analyse and understand my skin better anytime and anywhere. I order this tool from a clinic and bought it at RM 92. 

skin analyzer

They have two colour to select. Pink and White. I bought the pink colour one Y^^Y. 

This tool is very simple to use. With just three steps, I can directly measured and know my skin water content. With this tool, it help me to understand my skin Moisture, what is the water percentage, the Oiliness (skin type) and Roughness of my skin (dead cell thickness). One thing about this skin analyzer is that I can bring it anywhere as it's very small. Another thing is that with this tool, I can know which products help my skin. I can measure the skin before applying the product and re-measured my skin again after applying the product. 

This is my skin condition. :( As you can see, it's in terrible condition. I haven been doing my mask recently. What does this measurement tell me? It's telling me my skin is very dry with only 34% of water content and my skin is rough. This is not good!!!! RED ALERT!! Need to do more mask ..

Overall I think this beauty product it's worth to invest  :).

Review Cellnique Skin Purifying Daytime Protection 20

Hello gal ^^ Wish you all Happy New Year 2013. Its starting of a brand new year. Have you all set your goal for this year? I've set mine. By end of this year, I want to achieve flawless skin

In order to achieve 2013 goal, I've change my skincare routine. One of the item which I added to my skincare routine is Sunblock as it protect my skin from been damaged by the sunlight when I went outdoor. All the while I never use sunblock is because I think sunblock is  too oily for my skin as I have acne prone skin and felt it would congested my skin. However after I started to use Cellnique product two month ago for my acne, I get to know  that they have sunblock product as well, Skin Purifying Daytime Protection 20. I was keen to try-out but at the same time scare it might cause more breakout.

 I asked one of my friend who used this product. Her skin is also pimple prone skin. So far she haven see any breakout from using it. So I decided to give it a try. I would like to thank Cellnique for giving me this opportunity to try out their sunblock. Here's my honest review of it.

Cellnique Skin Purifying Daytime Protection 20 come with a pump head applicator which I think is quite hygienic. I've been using this product for two week before doing this review. Throughout the two week, I don't have any severe breakout.  ( which I think this is an important point for any people that have acne skin). Apart from that one thing that amaze me is it doesn't feel heavy/appear oily on my face. 

As stated inside the product description, this product is suitable for oily, acne-prone skin. Unlike normal sunblock, this product provide the below advantages which I personally felt it 's working as what it mention. 

 Kills the bacteria P.acnes that causes acne infection.  ( Acne seems less inflame during my one week application) 
• Prevents breakouts. ( No major breakout seem during two week application)
• Reduces inflammation caused by acne.
• Anti- irritant. ( Skin doesn't appear redness after application) 

Apart from these, it work as natural foundation to cover my acne mark. Although it doesn't provide full coverage but minimum enough to make my skin look natural.  It doesn't appear greyish or felt thickish. You won't felt anything on your face.  I use one pump for whole face and only apply it during daytime. 

Overall, I'm quite satisfy with this product. Above is all my personal review and experience on the product during the two week application. Will continue using it. :)

Face Lift Mask Review

Hi all...Today I’m going to review on the Kiss Japan Electric Ore Peptide Firming Duo Lifting Mask which I bought a couple of months ago..This mask is well known in Taiwan for lifting and firming. I just manage to try it out last week. This mask is suitable for all skin types.

What’s the function of this Mask?
1) With the “turning back time lifting”, it helps to firm and lift up your skin to create more 3D look.

2) Prevent your skin from aging and moisture your skin.

The packaging stated

Whitening ★★★★★
Moisturizing ★★★★
Tightening ★★★★★
Absorption ★★★★★
Fitting ★★★★★

Method of using:

Pros:1. The thing I like about this mask is it’s not so watery.
2. Skin appears smooth and pore tightens after applying.
3. Have ear-hook wrap for face and neck.
4. For the pricing of the mask, it’s not too expensive.

Cons:1. For me, the mask size is a bit small for me as I can’t hook the mask to my ear. My face is too big T.T. I think most of the people should be able to hook it to the ears.

2. After applying for 15 minutes and wash it off, I didn’t really see any lifting effect as mention by the mask. Maybe it’s because I use it for one time only. Not sure it will create a lifting effect if I continue using the mask for one month.

Review : Shu uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil

Its time to review on the Shu uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil. I got this sample last month on one of the Shu uemura sampling event. I choose the Fresh pore clarifying gentle cleansing oil to try out because I have oily combination skin. Been trying it out for one weeks..I have to say I like the product so much. I use it as night cleanser and makeup remover. It does it work well by deep cleansing my pores and clearly remove my makeup without drying my face. Some people might still feel it’s oily even though we rise off and will perform another cleansing using normal cleanser. For me, I didn’t perform double cleanse as I think it’s sufficient enough to clean out the dirt on my face and after rising off, my face feel smooth and refreshing due to its sakuna extract scent…I feel that it has the calming element inside it as its really calm me down and help me to refresh myself after a long hectic days.

Shu uemura Fresh Pore Clarifying Gentle Cleansing Oil helps to:
1) Wash away enlarge pores concern by minimizing the pores

2) Effectively remove makeup and impurities

3) Eliminate excessive sebum and smoothen the skin surface.

It comes with two sizes: 150 ml (RM99) and 459ml (RM260)

Reducing Pimples and Acne using Eskinol

How to successfully reduce the redness of your pimples in three days? Well..Today I will introduce to you a product name ESKINOL which mixed with Dalacin C. Dalacin C contain active ingredient clindamycin hydrochloride which is an antibiotic medicine. I’m not sure whether anyone of you heard about this cleanser but it has been with me for four years when I fighting over my acnes. I’ve severe acnes problems in my high school and that time I didn’t know anything about skin care. Some of relatives or friends saw my acnes problem introduce a few products and ask me to go for dermatologist, but it didn’t help much.

FINALLY one of my friends introduced me a product name ESKINOL. I heard about the product long time ago but never try it out. WHY? Well first…it’s because the pricing of this product is really cheap costing only RM 7 225ml (which make you think that this must some sort of lousy product) and second it’s only selling at some local old cheap drugstore. So finally I give it a try. I went to the pharmancy to buy one bottle and mixed it with Dalacin C..Surprisingly this product really work well for me…I never have any severe acne since I started using it and it has become one of my MUST-HAVE item. Now I use it as toner and only when I have pimples. It helps to reduce the redness and clear out the pimples in a very short time.

There are 6 type of ESKINOL and all have different roles:

1) Papaya Naturals – enriched with natural skin lightening properties of real papaya and thoroughly removes dirt and excess oil.

2) Avocado Naturals – enriched with vitamins A and E which help to maintain skins moisture

3) Lemon - enriched with lemon essence oil which remove unwanted dirt and oil.

4) Cucumber Naturals – contain real cucumber ingredients for a naturally cool and refreshed skin

5) Calamansi - Helps to whiten skin and prevent pimples

6) Classic Whitening – effectively deep cleanses your skin to whiten your skins.

In order for it to be really effective, REMEMBER to mixed the product with Dalacin C which can be bought at any pharmacy store. This product original doesn’t have any Dalacin C in it. 1 bottle of 225ml Eskinol can mix with 300mgs Dalacin C.

Method of using it:

1) Apply it on a cotton pad and wipe on the affect area only. Used it after cleaning your face. Suggested not to apply anything after applying it.

2) Used it on during day and night if the acnes or pimples are severe. Reduce using after pimples started to clear out.

Hope the information above help those having acne and pimples problems.

Get Rid of Blackhead

Most of us which includes men are having blackhead problem nowadays especially at the nose area and we tend to ignore it thinking no one would notice it from far away. Imaging that on a perfect romantic date, everything went well, you and your date are about to kiss.

Suddenly she or he stop because they can’t help noticing the “obvious” blackhead on your nose and feel gross about it. NOW at this moment, you will definitely feel embarrass and blame yourself for not taking these blackhead seriously.

How does blackhead form? Well blackhead is a plug of sebum will clog at our skin pores and turn black when oxidized after leaving for quite some times. After a long period of time, blackhead can actually lead to pimples growth. According to the skin expert, blackhead is the first stage of acne/pimples forming before the bacteria occupy the pores of our skin. Therefore it’s important to clean out /remove out the blackhead before they develop to pimples. Some people think those blackheads are more common for those with oily skin. It’s true..But from my opinion, for the blackheads that grow on oily skin are sometimes easier to remove compare to dry skin. I myself is oily and combination skin. It’s easy for me to remove my blackheads that grow on my nose by simply using blackhead extractor. My sister even question me a lot of times asking me how I remove my blackhead. My husband has dry skin and he has a LOTS of blackhead on his nose and it’s very hard to remove even with extractor.

Below are a few methods that can be used to remove the blackhead on nose:

1) Remove the blackhead using a blackhead extractor. It’s encourage remove the blackhead after taking your warm bath or place slightly warm towel on your nose for approximately 5 – 10 min to soften the blackheads. DO NOT uses your hand directly to extract out the blackhead as it can cause infection and do remember to clean and disinfect your extractor after using.

2) Using Egg White as a natural ingredient. Some people can’t stand the smell of the egg white. You can try to add some honey and a bit of lemon juice to egg white that has been beaten foamy. Apply the ingredient to a small piece of normal oil control film paper and softly place the paper on your nose and press a little. After that wait for it to dry and slightly pull the paper from bottom up. Use both of your hand to hold each side of the paper while removing. Do this once a week.

Currently we have a lot of skin care product in market which can help to control or prevent blackhead or whitehead. Here’s a list of the suggested product that be used :

a) Shiseido The Skincare Purifying Mask - it’s a rise off facial mask that helps to absorb sebum and impurities while minimizing pores.

b) Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliator Cream – this exfoliator gently lifts of dead cells and deeply cleanses pores. It’s suitable for sensitive skin as well.

c) Clinique Pore Minimizer Refining Serum – it keeps pores clears of dead skin cells and help to tighten pore walls.

Feel free to drop comment and share out more suggestion ^^

It's time to review on the SkinFood Peach Sake Toner. I just bought these a few weeks ago and been trying it for a while...i can't really remember the price of the toner...but they give me two samples ( SkinFood Argania Sebum Control Ampoule & SkinFood Peach Sake Pore Serum) to try out. As my skin is combination Oily, i will mostly focus on moisturing and controlling the greasiness.

This toner is make from "sake" traditional Japanese wine brewed with rigidly with selected rice, peach extract with vitamin A and C. I like the scent of it. It's really refreshing and sweet. Especially early in the morning when you apply it, you will feel refreshing.
I usually apply it at morning before going to work. It really help controlling the oil and my face feel less oily in the afternoon time. For better result, you can go with the SkinFood Peach Sake pore serum. You won't regret trying this. ^^

Today I just tried on the Dioscoreae Rhizoma Japanese Cornel Mask from The Faceshop. The function of this mask is to provide hydration and cell regeneration. The main ingredient consists of Dioscorease Rhizoma and Japanese Cornel. Though it's make from chinese medicine herbs, it doesn't have any strong smell of the herbs rather it smell pretty relaxing. Try to put it in the refrigerator before applying. It has cooling effect. The imperial herb mask come with 5 different type which is Flow mask sheet, Qi (Energy) Mask Sheet, Spirit Mask Sheet, Yang Mask Sheet and Ying Mask sheet. Each have different functions. There're sequence you need to follow for better effect. I bought five of these masks. You need to apply the Ying Mask Sheet first.

The Faceshop White Tree Vita Force Serum ~~

I purchase these for about one month from The Faceshop..I was looking for whitening cream to reduce the appearance of my scar..They introduce White Tree Vita Force Serum and White Three Vita Force Eye Serum.
I like the scent pretty much..its smell natural and nice especially when you put in on early morning, you'll feel refreshing. I'm not sure about the function of it as i haven see much changes on my skin except a few pimples popping out..T.T This would be more recommended for those who have normal skin type..It meant to brightens, clarifies, hydrates, and evens out skin tone.
As for the Eye serum, it work fine for me..it's oil-free and not creamy..I'm not sure about others eye cream/serum, this doesn't create any excessive oil spot around the eyes area..It helps to hydrates and revitalizes eye areas to reduce dark circle while protecting against environments.
Overall rating would be: ♥♥♥ out of five.
