Something New: L’Oreal Revitalift White Day Cream SPF18.

L'Oreal Revitalift Day Cream SPF 18

My mom has loved L’Oreal Revitalift ever since I let her try the Double Lifting Cream for the face, and I’m sure she’s gonna be excited as soon as she finds out this new addition to the Revitalift line–L’Oreal Revitalift White Day Cream with SPF 18.

This is L’Oreal’s first anti-aging product with whitening benefits. It claims to target wrinkles and firmness while prevents skin darkening and age spots. Thanks to its Pro-Retinol A which stimulates cell renewal to reduce wrinkles, and Vitamin B3 that inhibits the melanin transfer to cells correcting and fighting against dark spots.

What’s  actually amazing with this skin care product is that it’s fortified with SPF18 which protects the skin from harmful UV rays.

Skin is moisturized immediately, leaving a smooth and brighter, more luminous complexion. After 4 weeks, it claims that you can already see a huge glowing difference into your skin.

I took a pea size of this pearly smooth cream, and it easily melts into the skin upon application without the sticky or greasy feel.

My mom claims that Revitalift works for her. It really moisturizes her skin, leaving a radiant glow to it. Well, how can I question her with the way she looks (she’s currently in her mid-40s)?

Skin Care Love: Obagi Nu Derm.

Obagi Nu Derm Kit

I have always been curious about Obagi products ever since my best friend I introduced them to me years ago. She used to go to Belo Medical Group for her skincare woes, and that’s how she discovered Obagi. Amidst researching about the brand, I’ve stumbled upon lots of raves—from common people to celebrities. So, I surmised that this product seems to work, perhaps because it claims to work on the cellular level. However, the steep price tag forced my desire (as well as my wallet) to take a backseat.

I have been frustrated with my skin since time immemorial, mainly because of zits, zits and more zits—not to mention, the dullness and the visible pores. I have taken and applied various medications courtesy of my dermatologist, and I am so glad that my skin is in almost tip-top shape. Well, I still get a nasty dot here and there, but it’s not something as horrible as before I visited a skin doctor.

Come Obagi’s 11th Anniversary in the Philippines, I attended the event sans hesitation. It didn’t fail me, of course! I have learned so much more about the product, particularly on the technical side of how it actually works. What’s lovelier is that I get to try Obagi Nu Derm products, which I still religiously use alongside with my Shiseido Pureness skincare kit.

So, here’s some of Obagi Nu Derm products that I’ve tried:

Obagi Nu Derm Kit + Gift Card

Thus, this perfect gift comes with a Php 5,000 gift card. I used it to buy Obagi Foaming Gel for oily skin. I also used it to try the Obagi Nu Derm facial, which I enjoyed a lot! (more…)



Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Challenge Days 10-12

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery ConcentrateI tried pushing my luck further by using Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate alone. And so, starting from Day 10, I was using the concentrate alone every night sans the acne meds. I got lucky on the first night. My skin was still soft and supple, and didn’t break out to boot. 😀

Unfortunately, my endeavor wasn’t fruitful enough coz my face broke out a bit into these tiny pesky zits on the following days (10 and 12). Well, maybe I pushed way too hard. I wasn’t sleeping well during the past few days as my insomnia struck hard again. 🙁

So, starting Day 13, I’ll be using Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate together with my anti-acne topical meds. I still have around 2 days to go to finish my 15-day challenge.

I’ll also try getting a good night’s sleep again. Hence, it’ll involve adjusting my body clock perpendicular to my normal time zone. For those who are insomniacs like me, I know it’s really difficult and crazy[!] considering that I’m only taking a placebo (natural medicine). So again, wish me luck! 🙂

On the last day of the challenge, I will sum up  all the yays and nays I experienced using this product for two consecutive weeks. I will also announce the mechanics on how you can get your own Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate bottle. Hint: it has something to do with the same challenge. 😉
