Pros 

  1. I love how it feels so light on my skin!
  2. Definitely non-sticky
  3. Bottle is made of plastic, so less accident-prone.
  4. Free of fragrances (bad thing? but might be good in the sense that lesser chemicals are added), mineral oil, alcohol and colourant

Cons

  1. Personally prefer to apply using cotton pads than hands/fingers (just a personal preference!)

Other than that, this Hada Labo Whitening Lotion with Nano Formula is great!

Beauty Reviews – Sasatine Aloe & Olive Mask and SkinBiotics

Photo 29-03-2013 01 59 57 PM

 

Remember I blogged about trying out Skinbotics just about a week or so ago?

10 days into trying it out, I have to say that I am utterly disappointed in it.

Despite the ravings which you would come across by googling, I might just be the first to rant about it.

I wouldn’t say that Reactiv 01 doesn’t prove itself to be effective in terms of lightening your skin and to promote better skin complexion and radiance, but ever since I’ve been consuming it, I have had breakouts.

Why am I 99.9999% sure that the breakouts were/are caused by Skinbotics?

  1. I know I have done up an entry post about face mapping with regards to the acne locations on your face and its meaning, and I have experienced breakouts at zone 2 (in between my brows), zone 9 (on my right cheek) and zone 12 (on my chin) and not really zone 7 (nose – but inside my nostrils!). 
  2. I may be blessed with quite a good skin complexion and with the understanding of my own skin, I do know that I don’t breakout except when it’s nearing that time of the month due to hormonal changes.
  3. I have not used ‘new’ products which might attribute to this cause.
  4. I do not have sensitive skin or any known skin allergy, so I don’t usually breakout when experimenting with new products.
  5. I have been breaking out ever since the consumption of Skinbotics.
  6. It might due to stress, I will not rule out this factor since my exams are just next month and I’m cramping for it. But usually, I do not breakout consistently even when under stress.
  7. I will try and see if it’s really the cause by stopping my consumption for the time being. But it might not be 100% accurate because the time of the month is nearing (P*Log reminded me) and I’m still quite stressed out by exams. This also explains that I am only 99.9999% certain that the breakouts were caused by Skinbotics Reactiv 01.

***

Because I was breaking out and still am, I’ve decided to cast aside my laziness and slap a mask on it. Because Aloe Vera has soothing and calming properties on red skin, I decided to slap on any Aloe vera mask I could find at home. This also served as a reminder that I should stock up other brands of aloe vera mask should this current mask from Sasatine not work, because I’ve never trusted house brands.

Pros :

  • Skin looked brighter instantly
  • Quite well-hydrated
  • Didn’t cause extra oiliness the next morning (I usually wake up to a slightly oily skin the next day)
  • Contained lots of essence to lather and massage on your face and neck after mask removal
  • Might have helped to calm down 1 of my breakouts – but might be due to the pimple cream I applied (I’m using Mentholatum).

Cons :

  • Sheet mask is made of poor quality. Tore it even were mere slight strength. TWICE.

Overall rating :

3 stars

I think it’s still acceptable and since I’m on tight budget (due to overspending on shopping =x) and I still have tons of other masks lying around, I’ll stick to this for the time being when I need to calm my skin down.

Beauty Reviews – Heme Rose 24hr Hydrating Detox White Night Jelly

Product Size : 50ml

Product Description : This moisture rich night jelly is specially formulated to instantly hydrate skin. It also improves the skin’s ability to retain water overnight for a more intense treatment and repair. It will let one wake up the next morning with brighter and smoother skin.

How to use?

Apply onto face and gently massage in a circular motion as the last step of your skin care routine. Do not rinse. Apply 2 to 3 times a week.

As stated, I applied over my face after mositurising it. Again, I’d skipped the application of the cream step because it would be too much stuffs applied on my face…

Comparing this night gel to the Laneige one, the latter actually results in oilier skin when I wake up in the morning. However, comparing on their functions, I would choose this over Laneige too as well because it’s a 2-in-1 night gel which promotes hydration as well as whitening of the skin, whereas Laneige only helps to hydrate the skin. I felt that my skin was a tad brighter after washing. So imma recommend this product over the Laneige one, plus it’s waaaay cheaper too! Available at convenience stores at $18.90 but got mine at a discount of $14.18! 🙂
