Skin Update II: Tretinoin Retacnyl 0.25

Monday, January 21, 2013
so its been like 2 to 3 weeks since ive posted my first retacnyl experience,and i almost..i repeat almost stop using this cream,but ive told myself that i need to see its full effect on my skin,at that time,im seeing that my skins not getting any better btw,namely;cystic acne on the lower part of my cheeks,reddish face,micropeeling..so yeah,im definitely on the purging stage..

262697_498107243567881_1536675401_n_zpse06e7bf6 photo 262697_498107243567881_1536675401_n_zpse06e7bf6-1_zpsdcc6e709.jpg

 photo 548696_498107260234546_319059908_n_zpsea07b6de.jpg
and this..irritated skin,cystic are more inflamed.

 photo DSCN5889_zpsf1242bdc.jpg
jan 01 2013,pimples brewing underneath my skin..and it feels sore.but there is some improvement dont you think?

my skin is still far from okay,and i still need to wear a tinted moisturizer or a bb cream whenever i need to meet up with someone(im trying to stay away from foundations)

HOW I USE IT/frequency:
pea size amount,on my first few weeks i use this every night,but then decided to use it every other day,ive noticed that my skin is able to tolerate it that way,less redness,no peeling but i still have the cystic pimples popping out.

recent shot: Jan 19 2013

 photo DSCN6718_zpsd3733e52.jpg
see what i mean..those red ones near my jaw are deep ones..but my skin isnt as red as it used to.

 im on my 8th week mark...and ive heard that purging takes up to 5 -6 months! so this Tube right here..this so called Tretinoin is not for the weak willed..lucky are those who doesn't go through the purging process but id like to expect the worst anyways =D

still im in search for the best skin regimen for my skin..i do have a few staples though!THE SEARCH IS STILL ON!

Mario Badescu Drying Cream

Wednesday, January 16, 2013
its been how long since i posted my mario badescu purchase,i guess a month or so,and ive been using it almost everyday (yeah it sucks,that means i have nasty pimples on my face for that long) ,
DSCN4105

According to mariobadescu.com
BENEFITS:Acne cream that conceals! Drying Cream is an effective treatment to dry up small under the surface bumps and pimples. Just a few dabs smoothed on the erupted areas prevent pimples from getting larger and spreading out of control. Aloe rich cream conceals and heals erupted pimples.

HOW TO USE: Apply sparingly on pimples by dabbing with fingertip until cream blends into the skin. Best when applied after moisturizer, before make-up.

INGREDIENTS: Deionized Water, Zinc Oxide,Aloe, Beeswax,Cetyl Alcohol,Lemon Extract,Colloidal Sulfur,Ervol,Octyl Palmitate,Ichthammol,Polysorbate 80, Titanium Dioxide,Polyglycerylmethacrylate (and) Propylene Glycol

and its good for ALL SKINTYPES..


sorry for the icky shot.=D
Photobucket

now before i go on with the review,let me tell you a little something about my skin:
ive been breaking out for almost half a year or so,sudden break out at my age,my bet is its because of my Hormones,ADULT ACNE is such a nuisance,its very persistent,so scarring is something to look forward to,last year i have a very tough skin,now i have SENSITIVE still OILY skin,the break outs that i get is more cystic ,i have whiteheads(which sucks because they tend to flare up),papules(which then turns to a cyst),I have Fair/Medium Skintone NC 20, so the slightest discoloration is already a problem.

How i use it:
i only use it at night,i tried using it as a concealer however its too light for my skin plus the consistency is a little weird for that purpose, so what i do is i get a cotton tip/Qtip dip it on the cap and spot treat my acne.

Does it Work?
well on the first week,i was amazed on how well it works on my skin(whiteheads and blackheads),after a day i can see them surfacing without getting inflamed,however after the 3 week mark...it doesnt work as great as it used to,it only made the surrounding area peel but it didnt do anything on my bumps,before that i stopped using it for a week just to let my skin rest,and after that it didnt deliver the same result on my skin,
 I still use this on my pustules,as long as i can see a tiny head i apply it,it minimizes the time of recovery,makes them surface a lot faster, i find that they work best if the pimple has a head, black heads,to make it short clogged pores,as the product claims to be effective on small under the surface Bumps,but on my cystic ones,those deep seated pimples it doesn't work that well...


Texture:
i feel something gritty,but their really small and the product still has a Creamy consistency,but nothing like a concealer though

Smell-
SULFUR! doesnt smell good,my husband hates it,i dont like it,but my nose got used to the smell.
size-
Php 795.00 for 14ml

Packaging-
white plastic tub/pot,yes you have to dip something in...i use q tips

Availability-
Got this at Rustans essences.

Great for:

it says Good for all skintypes,but if you're on a drier side try not to apply this everyday,as ive mentioned it dries up the top layer of my pimples and the surrounding area as well;
those who have whiteheads black heads(congested pores)

Maybelline 24 Hr Color Tattoo-Bold Gold and Too Cool

Monday, January 14, 2013
As most of you guys know i love using eyeshadow bases,creams,mouse etc,and of course it has to withstand my oily lids.Ive been curious with maybelline's color tattoo for the longest time now cause a lot of beauty gurus are comparing it to Mac's Paint Pots,and so i asked my MIL to look for a few shades just to test it for myself

Photobucket
looks just like your regular gel liner

Photobucket
here are the shades too cool(top) and Bold Gold(bottom) taken without a flash

Photobucket
with flash.

Photobucket
here's the swatch taken with a flash.

Photobucket
Bold Gold on my eyes.

Thoughts:
in terms of how long they last...well,for a Drugstore Brand they are above average,ive worn this without a primer by itself and it lasted,i think its 5 hours hours without creasing,we just went out for a movie.

Color Pay Off..the shades that i got both have great pigmentation,and they transfer quite well.

If im going to compare them to my Paintpots yes they are both long lasting,however in formulation,i think they're not the same,Mac PP are a lot lighter and creamier when applied compared to Maybelline Color Tattoo,atleast the ones that i got,and ive noticed that once they were left untouched (maybellines) they form,its like the top part are drying so it solidify,but you can still use them just work your fingers in and warm it up,but that doesnt happen to my Mac PP.


Texture:
Creamy,but as ive mentioned they do have this tendency to form,sort of like the top part is drying,that happens when i dont use them that much.

Smell-
N/A

size-
0.14oz 4 g

Packaging-
clear glass type twist cap packaging.

Availability-
Rite Aid( where my MIL bought it)

Flawless Acne Facial Treatment Experience

Saturday, January 05, 2013
i shouldve posted this one a few days back but since i cant find a good way to put my photos together i guess im gonna have to do it the old way..

Photobucket
when i first went inside flawless i was like."ooh so cute.Pinks" ,they have a lot of clients/patients waiting to get pampered and beautified including me...as ive mentioned on my previous post i was supposed to get their advance acne control facial but it was already their cut off for facials that night so instead i opted for their KI aka cortisone shots...then i came back the next morning for my facial but just decided to avail their basic acne control facial.

as i remembered:(not in chronological order)

  • they will massage your face with a foaming facial soap,
  • they'll place their hands on top of your face for you to smell the aromatic oil
  • face steaming,then the mittens a little massage on the hands and shoulders
  • a mask then laser.

my face after the treatment:

DSCN4868_zpscd943726
right after the facial treatment..my face is full of red spots,i just used my iphones camera so its a bit blurry but you can definitely see the bumps and stuff.

DSCN4869_zpsd9e95ba1
right side

Photobucket
2nd day-the redness has mellowed down but i can feel some spots forming into deep whiteheads..uh oh.

Photobucket
3rd day- i can still feel the sting whenever i wash my face,and some red spots are still on sight.

Photobucket
right side.

Photobucket
4th day-the clusters on top of my cheekbones started to reddened and it now has 2 pimples.

Photobucket
left sides looking good though.

so final conclusion:
the process-it was soo relaxing..face massage,the warm mittens is good but not that relaxing for me,but i did like the 3-5 minutes of massage on the hands and shoulders,

The PRICKING-it was painful.i have high pain tolerance mind you,goodnesss!! ive gone through labor when i gave birth and i didnt shed a tear! but i cant seem to figure it out why this made me cry,good thing that my eyes were covered with gauzes,hehe but kidding aside,yes it was indeed Painful compared to my previous ones,however as long as i get a good result in the end,i wouldnt mind a few minutes of pain..maybe.... lol.
