My thoughts on some of Ole Henriksen’s best-selling products. ( First pic) This is my second jar, and nope…I didn’t finish the first one. I bought my first jar as part of a promotion pack, included together were The Truth Serum and Sheer Transformation Cream. I finished The Truth Serum way faster than the other 2, and somehow I decided to give away the products to my aunt. Few months later, my aunt came over and I was suprised to see her skin -smooth, flawless, healthy-looking and wrinkle-free (my aunt is 51) . She also looked radiant and glowy. I asked her what did she use and she replied , “well, the ones that you gave me, I think the night gel is great.” How come it didn’t work that well on me? I must say I didnt give it much time , and besides, because it stung my skin a little, I didnt use it as often. But seriously I was truly amazed by the results my aunt had that the next thing I knew, I was at Sephora.

Microdermabrasion by Dr.Brandt

11 Feb

I have been lazy with facials the past few months. And, although most women view facials as a way of relaxing and pampering oneself, I just cant get my lazy bum to agree. I used to get it done at ‘Regime’ (they use Dermalogica products) , a beauty spa 10 minutes from my house but of late, I find that having it at home is way more fun ( and besides, they always play incredibly slow songs, it’s pretty boring). Anyway, I took a package previously (it’s always cheaper than a single treatment) as recommended by the beautician based on my concerns, so I had a microdermabrasion done for brightening purpose. I must say that it worked because the next day when I got to work, my nurses complimented on my glowing skin. I was elated but that didn’t last long because I soon had breakouts which I could only blame the procedure for. So, from then onwards, I only had normal facials because my skin couldn’t tolerate microdermabrasion.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure that uses mechanical medium to remove the outermost layer of the skin. Well, in other words, it’s like having a machine to do the scrubbing of the face for you. As we age, the rate of skin’s turnover slows down and dead cells build up on the skin’s surface. While exfoliating at home helps, this procedure uses crystals and therefore has better result. This procedure is helpful in treating discoloration, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles and dullness.

Vaseline

8 Feb

Petroleum jelly or Petrolatum is commercially known as Vaseline in the beauty world. Petroleum and beauty, haha…doesn’t seem quite right there, does it? I mean, seriously, if the ‘Fossil Feul Theory’ is true, then all these while I’ve been putting remnants of dead dinasours on my lips!!
