Take Care of Your Skin
Woot, it pays to take care of your skin! I'm pleased to announce my skin is in good condition! *happy dance* I was at the Kanebo counter yesterday and did the machine skin analysis again. All in tip top condition. :D My skin is normalised and even the melanine is now low, whereas a few months ago, my skin was on the dry side, with slightly oily t-zone and melanine was high! Proud to say my skin firmness, skin tone, elasticity, etc. are all good too. SA pronounced my skin, "Very GOOD!" I was actually at the Kanebo counter at BHG today to take advantage of the 20% discount they were having. I wanted to get a more moisturising/hydrating cream for night use. The SA recommended that I should use Impress IC instead of Impress. Because my skin isn't too dry and doesn't show signs of aging yet, Impress would be too rich for me. I decided on the Impress IC whitening cream. Almost got the entire range because I was quite impressed with it. The texture is gorgeous - light yet hydrating and I could see immediate brightening effects on the parts where the product was tested on my skin. However I controlled myself and only got this and the Impress PT Essence (for pores). Impress PT Essence is sold out, but I purchased one at the 20% discount and the SA will call me when the stocks come in. Good service, huh? *grin* The SA also gave me samples to try. That's all the skincare/beauty spending ,I'm allowed for this month. (That's what I told myself, see if I keep to it! :p) Hehe. I'm thinking that in the next few posts, I'll show you what I have been using (like what Fuz and some other bloggers have been doing). I didn't have baaaaaad skin to begin with as I have been taking care of my skin and I think I have good enough skin for my age and condition (I have hyper-reactive/sensitive skin), but the machine says it's better now! On hindsight, I need to "strategise" where and when to get my skin care. If I can buy my skincare at 20% discount during sales, it's a big savings isn't it? Think about this: Impress IC Cream retails at S$170 without discount. It retails for 10,000 yen/S$147 (before tax) in Japan. With a 20% discount, it's a big savings of S$34. Reviews coming up soon. I've not forgotten. :D I've sold some stuff (thanks!) and added new stuff into the Make Up section. © Copyright. All rights reserved.
