Biotherm Biopur Range : An Experiment

I must say that for the last two weeks I've a very terrible breakouts. Even tough I've advised you to not pop pimples but I just can't help it. I tried a lot of acne solution products from various brands, you just name it, it just keep coming. At first, I thought the breakouts caused by SK-II Refining because I just added it in my regime but after did a skin check at SK-II counter, OMG, I do have a lot of clogged pores for a very long time. So, SK-II Refining just helped me to remove and clean off my pores for all the "permanent" dirts & debris which used to be happily clogged my pores. Maybe that's the reason why I keep getting all the acne plus with all the pressures I received from my office works. Actually, the SK-II promoter personally asked me to stop using SK-II Refining for a while, just to monitor and identify the root cause of my acne problem but I already identified the cause. After did the skin check test at SK-II counter, I bought Body Shop Mask and gave it a try. Few days later, tadaaa... acne was everywhere but I guessed, it's not possible because it is a Tea Tree Oil Mask. So, after treated my acne, I gave Body Shop mask an another try and tadaaa... indeed, my skin is sensitive to their products.

From my experience, SK-II is good in maintaining your skin conditions but takes a lot of time to treat acne. It does slow down the acne but you just can't stop it. So, yesterday, I thought maybe it's time for me to try other product. Besides, SK-II is very expensive and they just increased the price by 10% last April. I don't think I can keep up with their price anymore. So, yesterday I bought a trial pack from Biotherm counter and it's cost me RM45.00 only. The result, so far, no new acne and less oily. Maybe I give it a try for a week and if give a better result, this could be the end of this blog.

p/s: Should I throw away all my SK-II products if Biotherm give better result?

SK-II Cellumination Series' Reviews

SecondCityStyle : "I have been using the SK-II Cellumination Essence Hydrating Serum for the last couple of weeks and all I can say! I can see why Cate Blanchett sings it's praises. My skintone is noticeably clearer and appears almost plumped. Like it has been moisturized from the inside out. I have noticed some of my sun spots (yes I used to sunbathe back in the 80's when it was cool) have totally disappeared. My husband even commented I look rested which is amazing considering I am up nights with a baby! I can't wait to see how my skin looks in the suggested 8 week time frame. Not only am I keeping this serum in my skincare routine, I can't wait to try more from the line!"

Sassydoll : "this moisturizer (SK-II Cellumination Deep Surge) is mainly for combination skin and dry skin. it may be a tad too oily for some users. i personally don't quite like it due to the oiliness. for combination skin, i will suggest for to use it at night if you are not comfortable with an oily face before makeup during the day. for those with dry skin, no harm applying twice a day!"

BeautyAnonymous : "Unlike most of the skin whitening products I have used, SK-II Cellumination Essence (Hydrating Serum) not only doesn't dry my skin, but also provides an effective skin brightening ability and long-lasting moisturization. It can be used for day and night. But I have been using it only at night for nearly a month. The serum is one of the best brightening products I have tried. I was surprised that my face was soft, moisturized with a soft glow the next morning after I first used it. In a week, it did make my face slightly more even-toned and translucent. After almost one month, not only it has lightened my sun spots on the cheek bones and my past acne scar, but also clarified, brightened the skin tone, and refined the skin texture for a more even-toned, luminous and brighter appearance."

After reading all the reviews available in the internet, now I feel like I'm going to give SK-II Cellumination Essence a try. Just did a skin check last two weeks and I do have a problem with my skin tone. Hopefully I have enough money to buy this product but do man really needs an aura?.
