And I think I so have. With two products, that is. =P
I feel a little bad about not being able to do the tag (due to the circumstance I was in when I saw it... screaming editor and approaching deadline does not bode well for photo-taking), so I'm going to make it up by sharing with you dear loverly readers a picture of me totally bare faced.
Which is pretty equivalent to having to take a pic of me on the spot, right?
So read on if you wanna know which two products have reached HG status for me. And oh, if (and only if) you wanna see me sans makeup. *tee hee*
So here you go. The two products I can not live without now:
~H20+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment
You can click here for Kahani's review of it. I really love this stuff. And while I'm not going to do another full blown review, I'd just like to add my two cent's worth on this product. I only use it during the night, and it works like a charm. Like Kahani, I wake up to perfectly moisturised and happy skin, so my makeup applies so much better without the flaky skin. It also seems to have calmed my skin down a lot, and I'm just glad my skin loves this stuff.
b.liv (by celniq) Pro Sebum Gel
Again, not a complete review, but this has been my day gel which I apply before I even slap on sunscreen. Just one pump is more than sufficient for my entire face. It says on the bottle that it's a "Superstar gel that eliminates white and blackheads incredibly", and that you're suppose to apply to your T-zone. I apply mine to my entire face though. Seems to work well enough.
I don't know about its sebum controlling powers, my face still needs a blot up once or twice depending on how hot the day is and how long I'm at work for. I'm not really plagued by blackheads either, although I do know I have some whiteheads.
Anyways, after using both these products together in my daily skincare routine for close to two months now, I am really, REALLY happy and impressed with the results. And boy, am I glad I found this a few months before my wedding. My skin can sure use all the help it can get.
So, take a look at the piccies and you tell me if you see a difference. =P
Then: This photo was taken in January, before I started with these two products in my daily routine. I had spot pimples, and my chin was a particular problem area which had a tendency to flare up easily. Especially at that time of the month.
Now: This photo was taken a few days back, right before I hit the sack, hence the baggy T and all. Sans makeup girls (and of course, the flash helped a lot). The only thing I had on was eye gel, Face Oasis and Papaw ointment on my lips. I can never do without lipbalm. =P
After about two months, you can see it's still not a perfect canvas. You can still see the scars from previous massive pimples but overall I think my skin's improved heaps (save the growing eyebags). My skin feels supple and plumped, and the texture has improved greatly too. I don't even bother with concealer for work these days. Just my ZA two-way and foundation's done. =)
And the BEST part is, during Aunty Annie's visit didn't last month, it didn't even cause a single breakout. Nada. Zilch. (Oh dear, I am so hoping I'm not jinxing myself with this statement!) How cool is that?
So, I hope this has more than re-payed the tag. =P
Have a good weekend darlings!
