Skin Saviors!I’ve been babying my skin a few months after I’ve had the most massive breakout of my life. I stopped all skincare products and just used glycolic soap and the Avene Thermal Spring Water spray for two weeks or so. It didn’t stop the acne so I knew I had to put my first line of defense which I found in Effaclar Duo (European Version). When the acne finally calmed down, my skin was left ravaged — dull, uneven and filled with acne blemishes I’m left itching to treat ASAP. This post will just be an overview of each product because I still want to post individual reviews. It’s just that I’ve been receiving a lot of queries regarding my skincare routine on my ASK.FM account so I decided to make an entry about it already. La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo. This was such a major skincare savior because in a week’s time of using it generously all over my face, it miraculously stopped the acne from multiplying exponentially. I was off to Boracay for a wedding a week or so after I started using this and even before I left Manila, I was almost cystic acne-free! I couldn’t believe it, either but this worked very well on my skin. I used this almost excessively day and night – it’s been two months and I still have 1/3 left of the tube. I don’t use this anymore now that my acne has subsided, but I do use it when I feel like another onslaught is about to ensue. SK-II Facial Wash. I also switched from using my 5% Glycolic Soap to this, because I felt that it may be dehydrating my skin already causing overproduction of oil leading to more breakouts. I can’t say that this facial wash has reduced my acne, but it definitely has contributed to calming my skin down further. It doesn’t leave my face tight or squeaky, but more moisturized and smooth as compared to when I was using the glycolic soap. I only have this in sample sizes and I’ve gone through two of them already. Thinking of repurchasing this, but not sure about that yet (plus I can’t really get hold of it easily here!). Bobbi Brown Advanced Brightening Serum*. This is my ultimate dull & uneven skin savior at the moment. Guys, I’ve never been this excited to share skincare results because I never really see visible, astounding ones. HOWEVER, THIS SERUM. I’ve only been using this for three weeks but I can safely say that my skin texture is at its best since the start of this year. I’m a skeptic when it comes to luxury skincare (oftentimes they are ‘watered down’ so as not to induce irritation on sensitive skin so efficacy is slow and sometimes barely visible) but with this skincare range, I’ve been converted. I’ll elaborate more about this and its ingredients on its individual entry but I must share – I’ve experienced micropeeling from this serum since I started using it until two and a half weeks into it. The biggest tell-tale that it has transformed my skin? My sister and mother asked me on separate occasions what foundation I was using when I was actually barefaced and only had lipstick on. This evened out my skintone so fast that even my dark circles have lightened as well. UGH. I want a backup, now! Bobbi Brown Hydrating Intense Night Cream*. I’ve been slathering this on and off while using the serum because I want to see the full effects of the serum alone. So yes, I’m not as religious in putting this on as I was the Brightening Serum. On nights I use this though (which is 2-3x a week max), I do experience plumper and more moisturized skin in the morning, like baby soft skin that I can’t help not touching. I told myself I must use this more religiously though because I’m afraid of over-exfoliating from the serum which may cause breakouts from dehydrated skin all over again *knock on wood!*.
That’s it – just a short overview on the skincare products that make me the happy acne-free girl I once was back then! What are your skincare saviors when you experience acne? Do share below!
