As most of you know I'm quite busy at the moment, so sorry for the lack of updates, but I'm still around!
I've been waiting to write an update of my previous Japanese skincare products entry
, but just didn't find the time to do so.SK-II (Max Factor):
When I went to Hokkaido this summer vacation - and it was raining most of the time - I had a lot of time for shopping (too much
) and I ended up buying a SK-II trial set.
I've heard about SK-II's Facial Treatment Essence
on Youtube and ever since then wanted to try it.
The trial pack with an additional 20% discount on that day (yay!) was cheaper than the essence alone .... although saying "cheap" doesn't cut it. SK-II products are one of the most expensive skincare products in the world
. (o__o'') ....
Anyway, whenever I use a beauty product somebody recommended and claimed to have seen changes, I usually never see any on my own skin.
Sometimes I like the product simply because of its texture, smell etc. .... but I can't remember ever using anything where even stupid ol' me could see a difference.
This time I could ... like immediately!
My skin looks smoother, more radiant and just feels much better overall.
But let me first tell you what's so special about the SK-II products.( Read more...Collapse )
After using the products for about 1.5 weeks I stumbled upon a SK-II counter in my local shopping mall. They have a tool called "magic ring
" which they use to analyze your skin. It's completely free of charge, so I figured, why not try it!
I was a bit afraid to be honest. I'll turn 34
in a few months and I've already first fine lines / wrinkles around my eyes
and I can see more are coming through around my mouth as well. (T______T) ...................
Plus .... I know that I've committed so many skincare sins
without knowing until recently .... so I was expecting a really bad result!
I also saw that some beauty gurus who blogged about their "magic ring" experience got pretty bad results as well
. So, I thought ... if those people who know so much about how to keep your skin healthy and young have already such bad results, I don't wanna see mine ......
After scanning my skin, that's what appeared on the screen:( Read more...Collapse )
Ok, that's it for now. I'll keep you updated.
I might go to do another "magic ring" analysis next month to see if there's any improvement. Would be funny if my skin condition got worse after using their products for a while.
