Exclusive Box – INNI Solutions by La Source

INNI by La Source - Viktoria Jean Singapore

These products are a sneakpeek into INNI’s extensive solutions range, which target age-defense, advance whitening serum, pigment corrective and AHA renewal, amongst many other skincare troubles. All products in this set have a really clean  scent – no acidic / alcoholic smells which irritates the hell out of me. I’m big on the scents, and INNI has passed the test. Here we go:

1. Hyaluronic B5 Gel | 30ml
Provides intensive hydration by binding moisture to skin tissue. Restores and hydrates all skin types without clogging pores.
Suitability: For all skin type includes acne prone skin, male and female
Retail size and price: 30ml @$104.86
Verdict: With an au-naturale ensemble, this product is super hydrating. Gel-based, it glides on smoothly and is absorbed so quickly, it is as if my skin is quenching its thirst. Leaves no residue so feel free to layer with the rest of your routine. My favourite product from this set!

2. Youthful Glow Enzyme Peel | 15ml
A nutrient-rich exfoliant that combines the enzymatic properties of papaya and pineapple with the nourishing advantages of wholesome pumpkin. Leaves skin with a soft, refined glow.
Suitability: For all skin type, male and female
Retail size and price: 15ml @$17.66 | 80ml @$94.15
Verdict: Only tried this once – the exfoliant is powerful, and the results are as though I’ve just done a peel at a facial. Slightly drying after the exfoliation. Moisturizing products used after this peel got absorbed really efficiently.

INNI by La Source - Viktoria Jean Singapore

 

3. Skin Rescue Serum | 15ml
An instant fix for tired and fatigued skin, this Vitamin C-based serum hydrates and rejuvenates, promoting overall skin balance.
Suitability: For all skin type, male and female
Retail size and price: 15ml @$57.78 | 30ml @$115.56
Verdict: This worked wonders for my tired and fatigued skin. I’ve been having some late nights, and my complexion is taking the brunt of hits. Besides needing hydration, a shot of Vitamin C helps lighten up any pigmentation from skin fatigue, and also boosts skin elasticity. Great especially if layering on right before bedtime.

This set includes item overlaps from the previous set –  Youthful Glow Enzyme Peel and the Skin Rescue Serum. I’m really in love with the white mini satchel and pretty orange ribbons! Everything about this packaging feels like I’m stepping into a spa room.

INNI by La Source - Viktoria Jean Singapore

1. Illuminating Whitening Mask | 15ml
This unique brightening mask contains sea kelp, enzymes and minerals which work together to tone and brighten dull and tired looking skin.
Suitability: For all skin types, male and female
Retail Size and Price: 15ml @$15.65 | 80ml @$83.46
Verdict: I have fair skin in general and whitening masks never managed to achieve immediately visible effects. Or this could be because I was using this after a particularly late night. This revived my late-night, sleep-deprived zombie complexion, which instead of looking lifelessly gray, has taken on a slightly brighter tone. Will definitely try this again for more visible results.

Verdict: Indeed a natural beauty superfood! This is my favourite Winter Organics product from this set because it smells good, and does wonders to my skin. After one scrub, I swear my skin glowed a little, even after an entire day in a dry air-conditioned environment. Unlike many scrubs out there, it didn’t feel rough. But don’t take this for granted, when using a scrub, always only use your third and fourth fingers so you don’t harm the top layers of your skin.

3. Chamomile Flower Extract: Anti-inflammatory and soothing, beneficial for allergy prone and sensitive skin

Verdict: Chamomile always has that calming effect. When I use this to wash my face before bed, the au-naturale floral scent soothes my skin and relaxes my mind. I found the product slightly drying because after one wash, my skin felt a little tight. Then again this could be because I have been staying in air-conditioned areas for too long periods of time.  Overall I would still use this product again! Plus it’s handy enough to carry around for my showers at the gym.

The Face Inc – Revolutionary Primer Mist

Bustling with excitement as I’m writing this – The Face Inc has just, on 1 Nov, launched its Primer Mist and I’m honoured to be able to review this!

The Face Inc Primer Mist - Viktoria Jean Singapore

Back in April, I had the pleasure of reviewing The Face Inc’s cleansing gel and active toner. I loved their lightweight texture and clear composition. And especially because it doesn’t create a layer of grease on my skin. The Primer Mist has not fallen short of expectations. It is indeed, as described on their website, a “lightweight hydration face mist that works instantly to hydrate, smooth and tighten skin in 15 seconds“. As The Face Inc suggests, the product is ideally for use before make up as a skin refresher and primer, to allow makeup to stay fresh for longer periods of time, but I spritz mine on before and after to lock in my makeup.

The Face Inc Primer Mist - Viktoria Jean SingaporeThe Face Inc Primer Mist - Viktoria Jean SingaporeRetailing at SGD68, the primer mist comes with a travel-sized spritz bottle and 2 refills (3x15ml). Shaped like a lipstick, the bottle is slim and small enough to slip into the pocket of my jeans, and even the smallest of purses, for all-day hydration on-the-go. Perhaps I’ve just found the perfect alternative to Vichy’s Eau Thermale, which I used to never leave home without.

To open, the blue top cap is easily slipped off, and a nozzle is revealed by twisting the bottom half of the spritz.

The Face Inc Primer Mist - Viktoria Jean Singapore

The Face Inc Primer Mist - Viktoria Jean Singapore

Directions for use: Hold bottle 8 to 10 inches away from desired area and spray gently. Wait a few seconds before dabbing dry, and proceed with regular make-ip application. Can be used any time of day!

I tested this out first by first spritzing onto my hand – the liquid is clear,  but not completely watery (see first picture below). After spreading out the product evenly, absorbance rate was pretty fast. Within 15 – 30 seconds it was completely absorbed into my skin (see second picture below).The Face Inc Primer Mist - Viktoria Jean Singapore

The Face Inc Primer Mist - Viktoria Jean Singapore

After application, a cool sensation persists. Zero grease/residue was left behind so it looks as though I didn’t apply any product at all and that I feel was the best quality of this primer mist. Fragrance-wise there were no distinctive smells at all, so it doesn’t irritate at all when you spritz close to your eyes or nose.

I brought this out to the gym this morning. Post-shower, this doubled really effectively as both toner and moisturizer, and even as a makeup setting spritz! Seriously given this super convenient design, even without learning about the product, I’m already sold. Just take my money already. Loving this sleek blue hydrating primer mist so much, that I’m just so glad it comes with refills.

BlackBox SG – ProActiv+

No.1 acne treatment system Proactiv® has developed a more advanced Proactiv+ – an all-new acne-care system, now gentler and more effective than before. Completely reformulated from the ground up, Proactiv+ integrates Proactiv’s Smart Target Technology to deliver active ingredients directly into the pores to fight off breakouts.

Proactiv Japan Skincare - Blackbox SG [Viktoria Jean]

Proactiv+ is a medicated acne care treatment featuring a 3-step regimen and salicylic acid. This exclusive set comes with a handy quick start guide (albeit in Japanese), and is now available at BlackBox SG. Psst… don’t forget to apply my code ‘BBXJEAN10‘ for further 10% discount off your entire purchase! ♥

I’m hosting a giveaway for Proactiv+’s Skin Refining Mask at my instagram, and am announcing the results for this tomorrow (Sunday, 25 Sep!) Simply comment to stand a chance to win.

Now moving onto my reviews.

Proactiv+ 3-Step Core System Kit Exclusive set

The exclusive set comes in a convenient box, which opens up into a pretty turquoise interior, in which the 3-step regime is laid out cleanly. Though formulated to last 30 days, I believe this will last more than 2 months.

1. Proactiv+ Skin smoothing cleanser

Proactiv Japan Skincare - Blackbox SG [Viktoria Jean] 11

 

“Gentle exfoliating beads remove dead skin cells and excess oil. Contains an active ingredients salicylic acid. Kills acne-causing bacteria and helps to improve acne-causing bacteria and helps improve acne-prone skin. Smooth-textured agent thoroughly cleanses your skin.”
Retail Price: 60g, $29.90

Verdict: The texture felt too clean and even to be an exfoliator, but as it thins out against the skin, I could feel the small exfoliating beads working to smoothen out and remove my dead skin cells. Could feel and see the difference – though it’s good to remember not to rub too hard! Especially if you have bumpy acne. I’m in love with the clean, indiscernible, scent.

To use, apply appropriate amount (one tea spoon) of product to damp skin, then gently massage avoiding the eye area and lips, and rinse thoroughly with warm water.

2. Proactiv+ Pore Targeting Treatment

Proactiv Japan Skincare - Blackbox SG [Viktoria Jean] 10

“Integrated with the New “Smart Target™ Technology”. It is a serum with active ingredients to help prevent acne. A gentle lightweight gel texture adds moisture to the skin. Helps improve the skin’s texture to ensure a supple appearance.”
Retail Price: 30g, $20

Verdict: The light serum gets absorbed quickly, and can be applied with heavier creams like sunblock and liquid foundation. A light tingling sensation follows after application, and I like that it only has a light, clean fragrance. Formulated as a pore tightening treatment, I felt that it was better as a acne-smoothing serum.

To be used after Step 1 (Skin Smoothing Cleanser). Apply appropriate amount (pearl size) of product, then gently smooth over entire face avoiding the eye area without rubbing and allow to fully absorb.

3. Proactiv+ Skin Brightening Hydrator

Proactiv Japan Skincare - Blackbox SG [Viktoria Jean] 9

“Moisture-rich texture containing Vitamin C derivative and botanical ingredients. Protects skin from dryness. Prevents new acne from forming and smoothens skin. Adds complexion and helps make transparent skin.”
Retail Price: 30g, $29.90

Verdict: Skin feels moisturised upon application, though when used on top of the Pore Targeting Treatment, the product takes a while to get absorbed and leaves a layer of residue. Meantime, I’ve been using this together with sunblock and BB cream. After a week of use, my skin appears brighter!

To be used after Step 2 (Pore Targeting Treatment) or a toner fully absorbed, apply appropriate amount (pearl size) of product. Gently smooth over entire face
avoiding the eye area without rubbing and allow to fully absorb.

[FREE] Proactiv Refining Mask 

When you purchase the exclusive box set, this product comes completely free!

 

Proactiv Japan Skincare - Blackbox SG [Viktoria Jean] 7

“Proactiv® Refining Mask provides pampering that an oily, pimple-prone and sensitive skin needs. The facial mask acts as an acne treatment skin care product as it contains elements such as sulphur (a proven acne-fighting ingredient) that effectively fights acne causing bacteria. The active ingredient in it absorbs excess oil, reduces the appearance of pore size, pacifies redness and improves the skin texture. It also works well on stubborn blackheads and whiteheads. Regular application of this facial mask will give your skin a smooth and radiant effect.”
Retail Price: 28g, $20.50

Verdict: I have enlarged pores on my nose and certain parts of the T-zone. After a week of regular use, it gets easier to cover up those pores with makeup. Wouldn’t lie as to say that my pores are completely diminished from sight. I do love the clean fragrance of this refining mask, and would definitely use this on a longer-term basis for more effective results.

Proactiv Japan Skincare - Blackbox SG [Viktoria Jean] 8

Overall Verdict: As with most Japanese cosmetics, this Japan-formulated series give off a clean, refreshing vibe. It is an affordable off-the-shelf pharmaceutical brand, and I’ll definitely replenish the products that I find useful after I’ve used up this 30-day supply. For all my readers, I do hope you’ll give this a shot!

BlackBox SG – Dr Young Skincare

Hello! Haven’t updated in a long while, but I’m still alive!

Got my hands on a bunch of skincare products from Dr Young Skincare, and had the luxury of pampering my skin with goods from their latest launch. They deserve a good long review. Thank you BlackBox SG!

More exclusive Dr Young skincare sets are available at BlackBox SG. Psst… don’t forget to apply my code ‘BBXJEAN10‘ for further 10% discount off your entire purchase! ♥

Exclusive Box 1 – Dr. Young Acne-Prone & Oily Skin (Dark Skin Base)

Targeted at troubled skin, these products focus on soothing inflamed skin, and covering up your flaws. Though generally I don’t have acne problems, I have worked these wonders into my skincare regime to soothe the occasional breakout. Limited sets are now available at $32.90/box (U.P $76.60)! Link to purchase: at BlackBox SG

Dr Young Skincare BlackBox SG 2

What’s in it:

1. AC Out Spot Toner With Herb Complex | 120ml
Contains green and white tea that protect skin, with additional 5 herbs that prevent spread of irritated spots and control sebum excretion.  Green Tea & White Tea prevents skin damage while Tea Tree Oil, Salicylic Acid and Triclosn soothe irritated areas.
Retail Price: 120ml, $36.90

Verdict: Slightly watery, with zero alcoholic scent. Faint scent of tea tree oil in the liquid, which I loooove. Used this on my seasonal, hormonal breakouts (ladies, y’all know what I mean) and the toner soothed my angry red spots – making them calm down and fade away way faster than they usually do. Advise not to skip the cotton pad during application due to extremely runny liquid. (Then again, I hate viscous toners.)

Dr Young Toner AC Spot Out

2. 2P Pearl Brightening Balm SPF35 PA++ | 30ml
Hydrating soothing B.B. cream without stickiness but light adhesiveness that makes dark/tanned skin much brighter, healthier. Provides fresh feeling on your skin all day long.
Shade:  dark skin color base
Retail Price: 30ml, $27.90

Verdict: Unfortunately the BB Cream was of a darker tone and didn’t suit mine. Will be giving this away to a tanner friend. Any takers?

Dr Young BB Cream Skincare BlackBox SG

3. Refreshing Spring Showers Mask (Damyang Bamboo) | 2pcs
Contains refreshing bamboo extracts from Damyang, which are rich in mineral and Portulaca Oleracea Extract. Also contains Flavonoid from Adansonia Digitata Leaf Extract, and Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract which soothes sensitive skin.
Retail Price: Per sheet (20ml), $5.90

Verdict: Left mine in the fridge before application so as to ‘ice’ my pores – the cooling effect doubled the shiokness of this mask. Bamboo extracts in any facial product almost never go wrong. The cooling and soothing effects were good – although I was left with a slightly heavy residual essence on my skin. I actually do prefer some other varieties in another Dr Young face masks set (below).

Do make sure that the BB Cream suits your skin tone! There are two available in the selection. All in all, a very good selection of products for a targeted purpose.

Exclusive Box 2 – Dr. Young Face Mask Set (Citrus, Bamboo, Ginseng)

You know how some facemasks can never adhere comfortably to your face, or annoyingly leave a thick sheen of grease after? In my opinion a good facemask should fit ‘like a glove’, with minimal slipping, and leave little to no residue.

Dr Young’s exclusive sheet masks set comes with 5x citrus, bamboo and ginseng-enhanced face masks, which in my opinion ranks above the usual drugstore variety. The texture of its sheets are even finer than some of my favourite Taiwanese brands (My Beauty Diary included), though not as soft or pliable. At $22.90/pack (U.P $54) for 15 sheets, this set is practically a steal. Link to purchase this set: at BlackBox SG

Dr Young Skincare - Blackbox SG

Dr Young Masks Korea

What’s in it:

1. Clear & Glowing Sky Mask (Jeju Citrus) 
Boasts the brightening effect of tangerine from Jeju Island, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage site, and White Flower Complex (Jasmine, Rose, Lilium candidum, Freesia Refracta, Leontopodium alpinum, Iris Versicolor Extract) to improve your skin tone and complexion. Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract and hyaluronic acid provides deep moisture to skin.
Retail Price: Per sheet (20ml) @$5.90, 5pcs/set @$18

Verdict: I’m biased towards product with tangy, citrusy scents, as it enhances the clean, refreshing effect. After a couple of use, skin seems lighter and brighter from within. Great as a boost to the pre-bed ritual.


2. Refreshing Spring Showers Mask (Damyang Bamboo) Contains refreshing bamboo extracts from Damyang, which are rich in mineral and Portulaca Oleracea Extract. Also contains Flavonoid from Adansonia Digitata Leaf Extract, and Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract which soothes sensitive skin.
Retail Price: Per sheet (20ml) @$5.90, 5pcs/set @$18

Verdict: As mentioned, the slightly heavy residue could be better. I’ve tested some lighter bamboo facemasks.

Dr Young Skincare set Blackbox SG masks

3. Nourishing Rain on Dry Skin Mask (Geumsan Ginseng) 

Saponin, which is the main ingredient of ginseng from Geumsan, ChungCheongnam-do, provides elasticity and nutrition to skin. Additionally, Medicinal Herb Complex (Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Sophora Angustifolia Root Extract, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract, Prunus Persica (Peach) Leaf Extract, Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract) and Shea Butter extracts fill up skin with deep moisture and nutrition and wrap it up, which leads to healthy and glorious skin.
Retail Price: Per sheet (20ml) @$5.90, 5pcs/set @$18

Verdict: The ginseng mask is by far my favourite – after 20 minutes my face feels truly ‘prepped’ for other products in my routine. This was lighter than most ginseng masks (or masks claiming to boast the skin-loving properties of ginseng), and the aftereffect was less oily than most. The moisturized feeling lasted for about 4 hours before my face started greasing up. And that was good enough for me. Was able to layer on some sunblock after using this, and not feel that there was too much on my face.

Feel free to develop your own verdicts. With the haze returning, it’s even more crucial to give your skin some lovin’. On most days, I begin my evening skincare regime with facemasking – this step in the ritual is just really important to me, and increasingly so with bad air conditions.

The Face Inc BlackBox SG Giveaway

Read on for a sneak peek of this exclsive set. Unwrapping this took a little longer, because I never want to ruin these boxes.

The Face Inc Cleansing Gel Active Toner

I was really fascinated by the product’s absolute clarity. Transparent cleansers are not very common, or perhaps I’ve been using way too many products with  intensive lather.

The Face Inc Blackbox SingaporeThe Face Inc Blackbox Singapore

1. The Face Inc Cleansing Gel | 50ml

Marketed as a proprietary cleansing formulation that hydrates and tones all skin types. The clear gel feels cool to the touch when applied, with a faint fragrance attributed to the gel’s cucumber extract component, that acts as a skin conditioning and softening agent. The cleanser even has mild exfoliating properties, but for that property you still need an additional exfoliator.

The sodium chloride ingredient acts as a natural astringent and antiseptic agent, absorbing moisture, firming the skin and balancing the skin’s pH level. I don’t have to worry about acidity wrecking havoc on my skin.

Retail Size and Price: 50ml, $22

The Face Inc Cleansing Gel

2. The Face Inc Active Toner | 50ml

This alcohol-free toner contains AHAs for an enhanced cleansing process. Components like Citric and Lactic Acids remove dead skin cells to reduce wrinkles, discoloration and roughness, to reveal a radiant skin. Although toners are typically applied with cotton pads, I tend to skip the whole cotton-pads thing, since a lot of the product gets wasted and soaked into the applicator anyway.

I love the tingly feeling upon application of this clear, colourless fluid. There’s even a faint fragrance that lingers after!

BlackBox SG – Formula 10.0.6 Review

I first noticed Formula 10.0.6 on a Priceline Pharmacy shelf in Brisbane because the brand’s bold words and bright perky packaging were hard to miss. I’m really ecstatic to try this oft-heard of skincare brand that has been around for 83 years. Thank you BlackBoxSG for allowing me to review FORMULA 10.0.6!

Psst… don’t forget to apply my code ‘BBXJEAN10‘ at checkout for 10% discount off your entire purchase! ♥

So the products I got to test were:
☆ Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer (75ML)
☆ Three Times Sublime 3-In-1 Blackhead Wash+Scrub+Mask (100ML)

☆ Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask
☆ Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask
☆ No Time To Shine Oil Absorbing Mud Mask


Seriously Shine Free Mattifying Oil-Free Moisturizer
This matte-finish moisturizer contains guarana and Vitamin B3 to keep skin smooth and shine-free all day. The energising Guarana extract recharges tired skin while the combination of Vitamin B3 and Salicylic Acid helps prevent excess oil secretion, leaving a seriously shine-free complexion. This all-new formulation is derived from a predecessor, the Aloe Vera and Bamboo Mattifying Moisturizer.

I first noticed the product’s interesting fragrance – I still can’t put a finger on what it smells like! A pleasant mix of aloe vera and eucalyptus?  With a touch of tea tree, so altogether a pleasant, clean scent. The product has a a thin consistency for people who dislike thick viscous formulae. When applied, I felt a slight stinging sensation all over the areas in contact with the cream. The stinging sensation stopped after the cream was fully absorbed into my skin within 2 minutes. The mattifying effect lasted on my skin for approximately 4 hours after application, before my face naturally became oily.


True to its mattifying properties, the cream is fast-drying and leaves no sticky residues. Under my usual sunscreen and foundation, I used this as an oil-control base to keep my shine in check. For a long time after application, the pleasant scent remained on my skin!

A component of the product -Aloe Barbaden Leaf Juice – is chock-full of vitamins, minerals, cell-detoxifying acids, and also anti-inflammatory ingredients like salicylic acid. Often described as the ‘life-force of aloe vera’, the extract helps to shrink pores and sooth acne flare-ups, while nourishing to avoid over-drying sensation. I learnt this while googling the product ingredients to find out what was contributing to that incredible fragrance.
Three Times Sublime 3-In-1 Blackhead Wash+Scrub+Mask (100ML)

Three Times Sublime was first launched in 2012. The product annihilates blackheads and clears up your skin by simultaneously removing excess oil, unclogging pores and eliminating dark blemishes. It’s 3-in-1 formula which acts as a foaming wash, exfoliating scrub and mud mask for the complete complexion overhaul.

I wasn’t expecting such a thick scrub with that many jojoba beads, but thankfully the product worked well and didn’t feel scratchy on my skin. The product smells au naturale and fantastic thanks to its Pink Grapefruit and Pomegranate formula. For 15 minutes, with the product on my face, there was zero irritation. Just a small tip: leave your Three Times Sublime in the refrigerator before application for an amazing cooling effect!

Being an ultimate time-saver, the product is ideal for the busy socialite…and basically anyone who wishes to save time on skincare. Pink Grapefruit, a subtropical citrus fruit with an invigorating and uplifting fragrance to boost your mood, is one of the ingredients, along with  Jojoba beads to exfoliate dead skin cell, leaving your skin super smooth and blemish-free.

Directions to application: Apply to freshly cleansed and dried skin. Apply a thin coating over face and neck, avoiding eye area and allow mask to dry for 10-15 minutes. Dampen face and neck and massage gently until skin feels clean and smooth. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat skin dry. For best results use three times per week on alternative days.

Mud Masks
☆ Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask
☆ Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask
☆ No Time To Shine Oil Absorbing Mud Mask

I managed to test all 3 mud mask trial kits. Formula 10.0.6’s Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask was my absolute favourite – the product smells refreshingly warm (I love the fragrance!) with its sea-salt, bergamot and orange combination. There was a heating sensation which tingled my skin which I didn’t find unbearable at all. In fact, that’s when you know the product is working its magic.

The Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask is beige-pinkish in colour, and completely opaque. The cream glided onto my skin with easy finger application. The hard part comes when getting the product off! After leaving the product on for 15 minutes, the layer dries and hardens, making it harder to remove. Just a tip: use warm water and a soft washcloth (which I usually do for all liquid face masks).

I noticed significant difference from ‘pre mud-masking’ to ‘post mud-masking’ – my skin was visibly brighter and my pores weren’t as visible. I can even forgive the slight drying effect that comes with the detoxification process, because my face felt thoroughly cleansed of all the impurities from makeup and accumulated sun damage. For just 10-15 minutes of your time every week, the effect can be amazing. This is great for anyone feeling as though your skin can hardly breathe from the amount of makeup you’re putting on everyday. Loved this product so much that I’m planning to get a full-sized tube of Deep Down Detox!

Directions to application: Apply to freshly cleansed and dried skin. Apply a thin coating over face and neck, avoiding eye area. Allow mask to dry for 10-15 minutes then rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat skin dry. Use 1-3 times per week.

No Time To Shine Oil Absorbing Mud Mask is one of those face masks that works perfectly after a day out in the sun. The product consists largely of sea kelp and calendula – a little flower that packs a reputation for healing, soothing and antiseptic qualities. Sea Kelp normalizes the skins moisture content and helps heal blemishes due to antibacterial qualities. Concerns over sun damages are allayed at the end of the day when this mud mask helped soothe my skin. Despite its oil-absorbing claims, the product does not dry out the skin. I’m particular about product fragrances, and this one has an herbal deep-sea scent which I love!

Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask  clarifies the skin by eliminating impurities and clearing blocked pores. With the help of Strawberry, Yarrow and Rosemary, Pores Be Pure works to provide your skin with instant complexion perfection. The product is packed with antioxidants, which in any case is great for your skin and health in general. I found this product mediocre, and didn’t detect significant skin-clarifying results on my first usage. Perhaps I just need to use this a couple more times for that to show. Nonetheless, there is a mildly sweet scent to this product which matches the pink packaging and girly strawberries content.

All in all the mud masks are great value-for-money in terms of face masks. I do greatly recommend the Deep Down Detox!

BlackBox SG – Therapeutic Dermatologic Formula (TDF) Skincare Review

This beautiful trio arrived in the mail sometime ago. Thank you BlackBox SG for allowing me to review this classic TDF set!

Therapeutic Dermatologic Formula (TDF) is a respected name in the field of aesthetic dermatology hence I was super psyched to test out skincare products endorsed by many medical derma-professionals.

These are the products in the trio (from left to right):

☆ Non-Drying Cleansing Lotion (100ml)
☆ Age Defense PA+++ UVA/UVB SPF 50+ Sunscreen (50g)
☆ Light Textured Moisturizer (50g)

Now let’s test them out!

Non-Drying Cleansing Lotion (100ml)

TDF’s Non-Drying Lotion is part of a series designed for dry, dehydrated skin. This cleanser is specially formulated to thoroughly cleanse delicate sensitive skin without irritation, and at the same time protect the skin’s natural moisture barrier. The product doesn’t lather before or after contact with water (hence the thickness), which makes the cream slightly difficult to wash off at first.

I discovered that with a little finger scrubbing, my skin can be thoroughly cleansed and oil-free after washing with the product, without feeling as though all moisture has been sucked from it. When I needed a little bit more help removing makeup residues on my eyelids and lashes, this soft cleanser did the job for me. Kudos!

I’m always experimenting with new cleansers, but was surprised by the creamy, thick texture of TDF’s Non-Drying Lotion. Didn’t trust that it could wash my face well, but it surprisingly did!

Age Defense PA+++ UVA/UVB SPF 50+ Sunscreen (50g)

TDF’s Age Defense PA+++ UVA/UVB SPF50+ Sunscreen is clinically proven to protect our skin from sunburns, skin darkening and future photo damage. This high performance sunscreen provides maximum blockage against age-inducing UVA and harmful UVB rays with PA+++ rating and ultra microfine zinc oxide.

I love how the product delivers its non-whitening, non-oily and fragrance free promise, which is something I dislike about most sunscreens. It is also enriched with the powerful antioxidant CoQ10 for maximum sun protection.


Will show you how the product looks like upon application! In the second (unfiltered) photo is how my skin looks 2 minutes after rubbing the sunscreen in. There’s zero coverage, but definitely forms a visible, thin sheer layer.

  

After a short wait, my skin is neither oily nor sticky. Re-application is definitely necessary for sea sports and outdoor activities, as the product wears off like all sunscreens do. I discovered that this also works perfectly as makeup base on thin coverage days.

In Singapore’s tropical climate, sun damage causes a lot of pre-mature skin aging. Hence this layer of protection is crucial to maintaining  youthful skin. As part of TDF’s Age Defense Line, there are also products in the series complementing this sunscreen for anybody who’s afraid of getting sunspots!

Light Textured Moisturizer (50g)

TDF’s Light Textured Moisturizer is a sheer, lightweight fragrance-free formula that can be used alone or double up as your makeup base or primer. The cream formula has a quick-drying nature, and does not leave much oily residue. It locks in moisture and prevents further moisture loss, thereby improving skin texture and overall clarity.

I’m picky about the kind of moisturisers I use. This moisturizer doesn’t get absorbed as quickly or completely as I would have liked, but it’s definitely a great value-for-money over-the-counter product!

When applied to my skin, in 2 quick minutes the formula was almost fully absorbed by my skin, leaving behind a smooth exterior, and minimal stickiness. In a few hours, when applied alone, I find my skin producing less oils than usual, possibly as my skin was well-moisturized. I personally use this over one of my trusted skin serums for added moisture.


I’m glad that these products, though full-sized, are also convenient for travelling. Even better, they come in tester-sizes at BlackBox SG’s online store! Apply my code ‘BBXJEAN10‘ at checkout for 10% discount off your entire purchase!

Out of these 3 products, I grew to rely a lot on TDF’s Sunscreen, so much so I’m applying it on a daily basis.

Antioxidant. Helps maintain healthy arteries and a healthy cardiovascular system. Reduces the oxidation of LDL cholesterol. Supports cellular energy production. Natural source.

Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in the body and plays an essential role in the production of energy in all cells. As such it is important for the health of virtually all human tissues and organs. The heart is one of the most active tissues in the body, and requires an adequate supply of CoQ10. CoQ10 assists in maintaining heart health, in particular heart muscle function. The body’s ability to synthesise CoQ10 declines with age and with exercise. CoQ10 inhibits the oxidation of LDL-cholesterol. Cholesterol is very susceptible to free radical damage, which leads to the formation of a toxic derivative called oxidised LDL-cholesterol. It is currently understood that LDL-cholesterol may be harmful to the body after it has become oxidised.
