Beauty Boo Hoos (pt 3)

Hello, lovelies~ I was gonna post this on Wednesday, but since I haven't finished writing it, I didn't schedule it. However, the universe decided to 'kill' my internet connection, so I was left without the net for nearly three days.

Thank the heavens for the internet being 'alive' again today, so I am going to share some beauty products that didn't work for my skin. 

1. The Body Shop Instablur 5-Action Perfector
I have reviewed the Instablur on my blog post a week ago. It slightly reduces the appearance of my pores in photos, but if you were to see me in person, you can still see the pores. I broke out using this primer because it contains Vitamin E, which my skin can't stand.

2. KATE Mineral BB Gel Cream
This product has also been reviewed on my blog, you can read more about KATE Mineral BB Gel Cream here. I love the light to medium coverage and lightweight feel on my face. It is a suitable BB cream for everyday, but I didn't like the oil control and how it broke me out because of the isopropyl alcohol.

3. Avene Cleanance Exfoliating Absorbing Mask
Avene is a famous brand from France that is known for its thermal spring water mist. I love that mist that I'm always on the look out for promotions. However, I am not a fan of this wash off mask. It reminds me of the Skinfood mask, but this one stings my face after I applied it to my face.

When I wash it off, I was left with even redness all over my face. Thanks to hydrocortisone, I fixed that problem in a jiffy.

4. Bioderma Sebium Cleansing Gel
A face cleanser from Bioderma, which I have also reviewed on my blog. Although it cleans my face effortlessly, it broke me out badly on my forehead and cheeks. Maybe due to the fragrance.

5. Garnier Duo Clean Whitening + Smoothing
The latest cleanser from Garnier that has two colors on the cleansing foam happen to trigger acne on my face. I think it could be due to the myristic acid content. Excuse my super sensitive skin.

Have you tried any of the products listed above? Tell me how it works on your skin. I would love to hear your experience with each and every one of them. Thanks for reading and until then, I'll see you later~

  1. OMG ci you're so detail, you even know which ingredient that broke you out O_O

    1. Iya, Vee, soalnya kan udah nyoba skincare sekitar 2 tahun dan setiap kali ada yang bikin jerawat ditelaah kandungannya apa dan disearch di google mana yang berpotensi untuk bikin jerawat. Setelah puluhan kali nyoba, akhirnya ada gambaran bahan mana yang ga cocok di aku. :)
