Face TimeSaturday, June 22, 2013
I was supposed to publish this post yesterday but I wasn't able to due to internet problems. I don't know if it's because of the rain or it was just too slow yesterday. Anyway, these are my latest hauls of beauty products and some I use to take care of my skin.
Mentholatum Acnes Medicated Foaming Wash
My first time to try this product was when we had a sleepover at my friend's house. It was very soothing and just perfect for my very sensitive skin. So when my friend went to Taiwan, I asked her to get me one because it's not available here in the Philippines (not that I know of). I used it in the morning and at night, and happy with the result because during that time I was still having break outs due to stress or hormonal changes. It prevented my break outs because it is anti-bacterial and has a deep cleansing effect. That's why I was so happy when my older sister got me another bottle when she went to Singapore. She told me that it was a best-seller there and also in Japan. Here are some of the reasons why I think it is perfect for those who have very sensitive skin like me:
- Anti-bacterial: Contains Isopropyl Methyphenol (o-Cymen-5-ol) which penetrates deep into pores to fight against bacteria and helps prevent pimples.
- Soothing: Helps to soothe skin.
- Low-irritation: Low-irritating and suitable for sensitive and blemish prone skin.
- Deep Cleansing: Removes excess sebum, dirt & impurities. It also unclogs pores and reduces blemishes.
- Moisture retention: Contains Vitamin C with moisture retention, leaving your skin soft and moisturized after wash.
Shiseido Sea Breeze Natural+Aid for the Skin Antiseptic
After washing my face, I apply this on my face using a cotton to clean my face of excess dirt that a facial wash cannot remove on its own. It is very refreshing to the face and do not have a sting. It's cool effect is just perfect to soothe my skin. It is a very popular product from Japan and widely use for skin care. Moreover, it is use for:
- Preventing skin trouble
- Whole body massage
- After sports
- Repairing skin from sunburn
- After shaving skin
- Refreshing your skin
- Removing oil from skin
- After removing makeup
- After taking a bath or having a shower (source)
Remember when I went to the Majolica Majorca event last year (see this post)? After the event, I knew I had to get myself some of their products and try them on. Fortunately, my mom will attend a wedding and asked me what make-up to buy. I told her to get these since, again, it was perfect for our skin. She wouldn't believe me at first that I have to tell her it's under Shiseido and that had to do it. She said yes!
Majolica Majorca Skin Lingerie Pore Cover
It serves as a primer to help your make-up last longer and what I really love about this is that it covers your pores. Seriously, I'm not kidding! Apply a pea-size of this on your forehead, chin, cheeks and T-zone, and you'll look poreless. If not, it minimizes the pores. Perfect for close-up pictures! It also helps in protecting your pores from clogging due to all the dirt, sebum, etc. Skin Lingerie it is! Plus, it has SPF20 to protect your face from the sun.
Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Case II in Gold
Since we also bought their powder foundation (seen below), we have to get this compact case which is really beautiful and elegant. It is available in gold or in rose gold. The powder is also refillable so you don't need to get another case for each purchase!
Majolica Majorca Skin Remaker Pore Cover in B020
This is again another favorite of mine. Same with the Skin Lingerie Pore Cover, this also minimizes or totally covers pores. It also lasts longer, doesn't feel heavy and cake-y in the long run, and prevents oiliness. Plus, it is non-comedogenic which prevents breakouts and clogging pores. I've tried a lot of powders and foundations before, and end up having a few breakouts which I really hate since it means that the products I'm using are not good for my skin. So far, this has been the best one I used. Another is that it has SPF18 to protect your skin from the sun.
I got this from my aunt and been using it since. I would love to experiment on it some more. Maybe soon. I just love the packaging. It's pretty, don't you think?
Majolica Majorca Lash King
Finally, I got my hands on this! Hello to having fuller and longer lashes! It's true! Just apply lightly and voila! Your lashes will look longer and you don't need to use fake eyelashes. It really brightens up the eyes and gives life to it.
Majolica Majorca Popping Shower Powder
Because Majolica Majorca has a promo with their Lash King product, if you buy one, you'll get a freebie. You get to pick some amazing prizes that are mostly not available in their stores. We got this one and it really smells so good!
What products do you guys use on your face? :)
