Alpha Hydrox Souffle 12%

Thursday, December 27, 2012
Warning Picture Heavy:this is one of the products that i used on my first flare up.

Its just recently that ive been introduced with chemical exfoliants,i never had the very famous chemical peels..YET.. cause i thought that my sensitive skin might not like them,i cant find any local AHA/BHA based cream,so i decided to search some brands from US...
DSCN0983
that's where i found this..the Alpha Hydrox Brand..its available locally(if not from ULTA you can find them online)from the US...

i didnt order it from their site though but they do have a great deal online,buy a second one for only 1.99$ ..i dont know if its still running or not,you can just go and check their site

comes in a tub,i cant put my finger on its packaging,it looks like a glass but feels a little plastic-y,i purchased it last july 24

Photobucket
the product itself is quite thick,but very easy to blend.

this is where i started: btw in conjunction with this im also using other acne treatments and spot corrector so thats another thing to consider.

June-so even before i started using the AHA my skin looks much better than before,thanks to Kiehls Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution(click here)

How i use it:
every night for the first few weeks,then i started using it every other day,alternating it with kiehls dark spot solution,a small amount will do,since its very creamy,for my giant face a pea size will do just fine.

Does it Work:
Yes it did,before i purchased this i made my research,about Glycolic Products and whatnots,this is my first ever skincare that has glycolic in it,and im glad i got it,it did help lighten my dark purplish marks,its not an overnight miracle cream,so it took a while for me to see some changes,plus it didnt irritate my skin,usually my skin reacts to almost anything now that im a sensitive skin Convert which sucks! but this didnt gave me those itchy bumps.I admit its always a risk to try new products specially if your acne prone with sensitive skin,cause most likely my skin will react in a bad way making things worst,glad this is not one of those times.

Tretinoin Preview:Retacnyl 0.025

Sunday, December 23, 2012
Good day ladies and Gents,ive been documenting my skin's ups and downs for the last few weeks,and for this log im going to start with my Tretinoin Journey,last 2 weeks ago i told the dermatologist that i wanted to minimize my clogged pores,having PCOS my hormones are out of balance,and going out of whack for the past months,so ive been getting a lot of clogged pores that soon turns into a deep cyst...Anyway let me show you how my skin looks prior to Retacnyl

Photobucket
Before going on tretinoin...just had a cortisone shot on 4 cystic pimples and a facial hence it looks rather nice  and clean on photos,but when i taut my skin,that's when they appear,


Photobucket
1 week mark-my skin feels soft and the texture looks so SMOOTH!well that's given when your using tretinoin,it'll definitely change the skins texture,its an anti wrinkle cream AFAIK

Photobucket
about 1 week and 3 days
you can see how red my skin is,and those deep dents are from the cortison shot that i got before,also on my left cheek there seems to be a deep cyst forming..DUM DUM DUM>!

2nd week mark..(left cheek)
other than that deep cyst,the whitehead next to it also turned..but im glad that it came to a head..its soooo hard to treat DEEP cystic pimples.

Photobucket
and my right cheek,its a different story...2 cystic pimples suddenly popped up and my marks are much redder than before.

will continue this log soon,need to buy batteries for my camera first

My Flawless Beauty Transformation

Sunday, December 16, 2012
Its just recently when i discovered Flawless... before,whenever i pass through their clinic,the pink sign came to me as FLAMES,i remembered maybe they based it on the FLAMES movie waay back 1997,since they have that crooked way of lining the letters( or its just me) =D,not until i got in for a facial and while i was laying on my pink bed,with this big FLAWLESS sign on top of me,so while i was in pain(facials for me are painful!but worth it tiis ganda moment) i was like..oohh,i see..So enough about first encounters..
Photobucket

    I have a lot of treatments on my list that i havent got the chance to try yet,like i was contemplating wether to get a PowerPeel or Chemical Peel ,i want to be the next ad girl for Nano Power Peel!with ALL that slight arched back flawless shoulder and glowing skin.RAWR~!
Photobucket
in the end i opted for their Salicylic Peel (more on to that soon)

 But the thing is,there's this voices at the back of my head..*schizo mode* its that Ive heard a lot of good raves about how radiant their skin looks and how smooth it feels at the same time,with Flawless' Body Scrub and Bleach Treatment,i noticed that ive been neglecting the skin on my body for quite a long time and been only focusing on my face,making it look a lot fairer than my body,so with that being said i would definitely want to try the Body Scrub W/ Bleach treatment to even out my Totem Face,and to bring back that glow that i once had..well when i was 13-15-16 years old,wouldnt that be awesome,a Mom with a teenage skin !

Photobucket
Feel at home lang si Ate? hehe. colorful flawless product shelves.

Happy National Flawless Month!




Will make a seperate review about my Salicylic acid peel Treatment from them,its just that i still have to buy batteries for my Camera=D

compared to etude house this is definitely better in terms of color range and how well it closely gave me the color that is shown on the box,but my hair is much softer after using the conditioner of etude =D.
