When I first started experimenting with anti-acne spot treatments, I was very confused. There were spot treatment, spot gel, blemish lotion, blemish serum, anti-acne blah blah blah. At first glance, they are all very similar, but in actuality, they all serve the same purpose in a routine at different steps, independently. Some, you can use them together. Others, are exactly the same type of product that might cause extreme dryness when used together in a routine. I still struggle with acne, but throughout the years I have sussed out what kind and what type of products work for me, and Tea Tree Oil, on its own or as a mixed medium, always work wonders for me. This Naruko Tea Tree duo have followed me on my trip to BKK and to KL and helped a great deal in  controlling my zituation!
---------------------------------
Post Blemish Corrector
- lighten post blemish marks, control sebum and soothe inflammation with key ingredients of 0.5% Salicylic Acid, Gluconolactone, Lentil Seed, Saw Palmetto, PENTAVITIN®, Tranexamic Acid, Houttuynia Cordata, Pirotone Olamine, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4 and more.
---------------------------------
Tea Tree Purifying Essential Oil
- 15% Tea Tree Oil with powerful anti-bacterial effects, combined with 2% Salicylic Acid got targeted, localized anti-acne treatment. It also helps with skin relieve, recovery and restoring with Phytoferulin® and Tamanu Oil.
---------------------------------
Here is how you can use this pair: dot the tea tree oil only on the spot or soon-to-form spot right after toner and let it dry naturally. Then, massage the corrector over spots that are on its way to healing, or inflamed areas only. Because of the high concentration of Tea Tree Oil and Salicylic Acid, I would also recommend pairing a simple and basic hydrating serum with Hyaluronic Acid before moisturizer.

The dermatologist did a fractional laser at a slightly higher setting yesterday and my skin really liked that. It reacted in a positive manner and the next step my skin does is to self-heal. This is the time to forgo the chemical exfoliants and load up on cell renewal and collagen stimulating ingredients like EGF, Collagen, Peptides, Squalane etc. Lucky for me, I have the perfect one little fella that does it all!
---------------------------------
DrGL® Skin Repair
- Powerful skin recovering and restoring serum with a whole package of Sodium Hyaluronate, Lysine, Xylitol, Cucumber, Silver Ear Mushroom Polysaccharide (TFPS), Thioctic Acid, and lipids
---------------------------------
This little gem provides powerful anti-inflammatory action to skin while improving the signs of aging and speed up wound healing. Tapping into the wonders of Plant Stem Cell, this serum goes beyond just protecting and repairing.
.
This is good, but a little pricey. So use it sparingly, or like me, just apply like a localized treatment - on freshly popped pimples (popped if you had no choice), weakened skin areas, peeling or flaking patches etc etc. I use it beneath a full face serum and after a toner. It’s lightweight, it’s scent-less, and it absorbs pretty quickly leaving no odd residue behind.

Topping up my Vitamin B3 topically with Thailand’s clinical brand, Fundamental. True to its name, the brand wants to filter out the unnecessary and offer their customers the building blocks to strengthen their skin fundament.
---------------------------------
Fundamental Niacinamide 15%
- Treatment serum with 15% Niacinamide, Gluconolactone, Hyaluronic Acid and more to help improve complexion, reduce blemishes, regulate sebum production, and signs of aging.
---------------------------------
Having used a couple of bottles already in the past, this B3 serum works really well and play nicely with other branded products (i.e. well formulated, no funny cross reactions).
.
Unfortunately, the brand does not offer international purchasing option yet, but here’s hoping they do soon because you guys really need to try some of their products!

Have you guys seen the latest drop from Neutrogena Hydro Boost™ line in SG? Let me share with you a little tidbit about this Hydro Boost™ line. Formulated with high purity Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidant-rich Olive Extract, the Hydro Boost™ line claims to help skin achieve “5 dimensions of ideal healthy skin of hydration, luminous, bouncy, firm and smooth”. Below are some key features to individual products shown.
---------------------------------
Hydro Boost™ Capsule in Serum
- Capsulated antioxidant replenishes nutrients and minerals to aid in skin recovery and strength. Suspended in Moisture Sensor Complex serum, the skin barrier is further strengthened, fortified, and effectively locks in moisture.
---------------------------------
Hydro Boost™ Water Gel Cleanser
- Refreshing gel-textured cleanser that removes makeup while supplementing skin’s moisture level. Free of soap and oil, this cleanses without disrupting the natural barrier.
---------------------------------
Hydro Boost™ Water Gel Lotion SPF50
- Moisture-rich silky lotion with Helioplex® Technology that provides powerful broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
---------------------------------
Hydro Boost™ Hydro Gel
- Award-winning moisturizer in a refreshing gel texture. Aided by Moisture Sensor Complex, this gel moisturizer hydrates the skin intensively, locking in moisture and replenishing it throughout the day.
---------------------------------
Honestly, I am so happy to see that Neutrogena Singapore is working hard to bring in products from other offices. If you are like me, keeping tabs on other countries’ launches, you’d know that there are a lot more goodies under the Hydro Boost™ line, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that SG will continue to bring in the newer releases that caters to the needs of locals.

It is hard to have a clean and clear complexion if you do not do the basics right. By basics, I meant your cleansing step. Cleansing is so important and after adopting the ‘double cleansing’ method, my skin has never felt cleaner without the barrier feeling wrecked.
---------------------------------
Celimax Derma Nature Fresh Blackhead Jojoba Cleansing Oil
- a light cleansing oil with a slight viscous texture to it. With a blend of 7 botanical oils (Meadowfoam, Jojoba, Sunflower, Sweet Almond, Olive, Grape Seed, Apricot), Green Tea and others, this easy cleansing oil removes all traces of makeup and daily grime quickly and efficiently.
---------------------------------
Okay, just let me put this out there first - in the description it says that it “effectively dissolves blackheads”. To my observation, I did not really see any reduction, or changes to my blackheads. To further challenge it, I decided to use those peel-off nose pack on my nose for  a couple of times a week all while using this cleansing oil as a first cleanse daily. Now I can conclude that this cleansing oil, most definitely due to the inherent qualities from the carefully selected botanical oils, it does offer a degree of prevention with its cleaning power. If you already have visible blackheads, you are definitely going to want to get them removed first to then truly benefit from this cleansing oil IMO.
.
The texture of the cleansing oil belongs to the slightly thicker than water type and because that, I tend to pump 3~4 pumps for use. It does emulsify with water and that is what I do after massaging and melting off the base products and then do a second cleanse. Definitely not a disappointing product to use!

If you want the deep cleansing, pore refining and acne-fighting effects of charcoal clay mask but not the slight drying aftermath, the charcoal mask 2.0 from Origins is worth investing*!
---------------------------------
Clear Improvement™ Charcoal Honey Mask
- the same wonderful deep pore cleansing and acne-fighting Bamboo Charcoal and clay mask now with added Golden Wildflower, fermented Honey, Caffeine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Glycerin, Trehalose and more. This help to deep cleanse while nourishing and conditioning the skin.
---------------------------------
Here’s the thing. The charcoal mask 2.0 contains multiple essential oils which may prove bothersome for some, so do counter check the ingredient list to be sure. Aside from this, well, the mask offers the same great pore purifying and refining results its 1.0 sibling does with additional skin softening and healing qualities. .
I am also happy to learn that the honey Origins used is harvested using methods that keep bees safe and healthy (taken from their website). Comparing 2.0 to 1.0, pick the latter for a more intensive treatment and the former for regular maintenance/conditioning. By the way, did you guys know that the brand recently launched an oil-free charcoal moisturizer with 1% Salicylic Acid for blemish-prone skin? Have you tried it yet?

Eyes, windows to our soul. Or at least one way where I am going to channel my charm to you. Look into my eyes....but not the dark circles below it, not the little creases when I smile, and definitely not the redness when I rub my eyes.
.
Does the above sounds like what you are dealing with? Ha! You are not alone. Here we have the newest addition to the Vichy (pronounce as: Vee-shee) Minéral 89 range. To re-emphasize, the 89 in the name refers to the inclusion of a whopping 89% of Vichy Thermal Mineralizing Water. This precious ingredient houses 15 natural minerals to strengthen and revitalize the skin naturally and safely.
.
The addition to the NEW Minéral Eye Contour Repairing Concentrate is addition of Caffeine (brightening, tightening, anti-inflammatory), Chlorella (antioxidant), Adenosine (anti-aging/wrinkle), and Shea Butter (intense moisture). Anyhoo, I have yet to try this but the lightweight gel texture is very alluring!

Today’s featured post is all about the products texture. I handpicked 3 products from DrGL® and them being summer-ready is the only criteria because Singapore is summer-only.
---------------------------------
DrGL® Skin Repair | $118/10ml
- Intensive treatment serum for repairing, restoring, revitalizing, protecting and providing a dynamic damage recovery action.
---------------------------------
DrGL® Restore Gel Mask | $68/100ml
- Slight bluish tinted mutli-use gel fortified with antioxidant, Guaiazulene (from Chamomile), which provides powerful anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and soothing benefits. These in addition to the botanical formula for quick soothing and healing effects. Doubles up as mask, moisturizer, and shaving gel.
---------------------------------
DrGL® Sun Protection Mist | $88/80ml
- Sun protection in a quick-drying, non-oily formula. Equipped with a ‘wide area dispersal’ nozzle for an even distribution of product. Botanical extracts help defense against damages while offering hydration simultaneously.
---------------------------------
Okay guys, the tissue test in my SPF video? It is to demonstrate how fine the mist disperses. Like, if it’s the normal nozzle, you can bet there’d be splatter pattern. Instead, the surface is just....moist - not even soaking wet! Also, that Skin Repair thingie is like liquid elixir. The whole product concept and claim. Just ask all the users who left their 5-star reviews and repurchase this rather...pricey product. I believe that is a real testament to the efficacy of a product.
.
I will be testing these newbies for a while and will return with a blog post detailing my experience so keep a lookout for when the post is up.

If Alice had to remove the Mad Hatter’s makeup, what would she have used? I bet she’d cleverly formulate a micellar water and blended in the oils of Sunflower, Rosemary and Lavender that she freshly hand picked in the garden of the Wonderland!
.
I have been using the NEW Bifesta Dual Phase Pore Clear Micellar Water daily as a morning cleanser and am enjoying it very much! Although it is indicated as a non-rinse formula, I will still recommend that you splash off with tap water. Yes, this dual phase micellar water is a makeup remover. Yes, it can remove waterproof makeup (see product texture test video, Slide 2). Yes, there are botanical oils in there. Yes, it takes away daily dirt, grime, and makeup effortlessly. Yes, it leaves the skin feeling moist and comfortable.
.
This dual phase micellar water is really a delight to use as a makeup remover (sunscreen, primer, foundation, powder - my case), and even perfectly as a morning ‘wash’ to remove those dried up pimple cream and freshen up the skin. Habitually, I splash my face with lukewarm immediately after, before continuing with my morning routine.

Let’s have a look at the texture of both personalized serums customized for me by Alche{me}, a Singapore-founded and based skincare brand.
---------------------------------
Ryan’s Personalized Serum
- an ultra light textured serum that provides dedicated treatment to all 5 priorities identified: Acne/Oil Control, Acne Scarring, Anti-Ageing/In-Depth Hydration, Radiance, and Pores.
- Key ingredients include: Iris Root, Vitamin A Palmitate, Zinc Sulfate, Centella Asiatica, Ginseng Root, Bakuchiol, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Wheat Seed Ceramide
---------------------------------
Ryan’s Personalized Eye Serum
- a delightfully lightweight eye serum that provides dedicated treatment to all 4 priorities identified: Dark Circles, Anti-Ageing, Tonicity, In-Depth Hydration/Moisturizing.
- Key Ingredients include: Atlas Cedar, Persian Silk Tree, Darutoside, Bakuchiol, Ginseng Root, Hyaluronic Acid, Japanese Camellia Seed Oil, Allantoin
---------------------------------
Alche{me} gave the option to choose the texture and fragrance of the face serum at the end of the questionnaire. I picked “ultra light” and “with fragrance” for mine. And as you can observe from this texture video, both serums are exceptionally lightweight and does sinks into the skin pretty neatly. The one thing that you cannot tell is how DELICIOUS the face serum smells like. It smells like a glass of freshly poured cucumber cocktail (or mocktail for those of us who don’t drink).
.
Another highlight for me after looking through the notes is their use of a current trendy ingredient: Babchi Seeds (Bakuchiol). This is what is touted as the Retinol alternative. Heavily referenced in the Ayurveda practice, this herb has been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years for a wide range of benefits. In modern cosmeceuticals, this herb is highly acclaimed for being able to deliver everything Retinol, a gold standard for complete anti-aging benefits, can offer but without its associated downside. Cool! Excited!

🦁🦁🦁 Let’s have a look at the texture of both personalized serums customized for me by Alche{me}, a Singapore-founded and based skincare brand. --------------------------------- Ryan’s Personalized Serum - an ultra light textured serum that provides dedicated treatment to all 5 priorities identified: Acne/Oil Control, Acne Scarring, Anti-Ageing/In-Depth Hydration, Radiance, and Pores. - Key ingredients include: Iris Root, Vitamin A Palmitate, Zinc Sulfate, Centella Asiatica, Ginseng Root, Bakuchiol, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Wheat Seed Ceramide --------------------------------- Ryan’s Personalized Eye Serum - a delightfully lightweight eye serum that provides dedicated treatment to all 4 priorities identified: Dark Circles, Anti-Ageing, Tonicity, In-Depth Hydration/Moisturizing. - Key Ingredients include: Atlas Cedar, Persian Silk Tree, Darutoside, Bakuchiol, Ginseng Root, Hyaluronic Acid, Japanese Camellia Seed Oil, Allantoin --------------------------------- Alche{me} gave the option to choose the texture and fragrance of the face serum at the end of the questionnaire. I picked “ultra light” and “with fragrance” for mine. And as you can observe from this texture video, both serums are exceptionally lightweight and does sinks into the skin pretty neatly. The one thing that you cannot tell is how DELICIOUS the face serum smells like. It smells like a glass of freshly poured cucumber cocktail (or mocktail for those of us who don’t drink). . Another highlight for me after looking through the notes is their use of a current trendy ingredient: Babchi Seeds (Bakuchiol). This is what is touted as the Retinol alternative. Heavily referenced in the Ayurveda practice, this herb has been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years for a wide range of benefits. In modern cosmeceuticals, this herb is highly acclaimed for being able to deliver everything Retinol, a gold standard for complete anti-aging benefits, can offer but without its associated downside. Cool! Excited! —— #AlchemeSkincare #AlchemeSG #ProductTextureTest #PersonalizedSkincare

Do you know what’s better than receiving new skincare to use? If your answer is customized, bespoke skincare, you are absolutely right! No, I don’t just mean having your name on the product. Rather, having both your name AND formula tweaked to address your top skin issues and concerns. Very neat right? Today’s #theLIONunbox episode features alche{me}, a Singapore based and founded skincare brand that do just that - personalized treatment serums for face, and for eye.
.
For personalization, all you have to do is answer a questionnaire on Alche{me} website and the algorithm will take care of the rest for you. Upon completion, you will also gain insights with suggestions, recommendations and a summary of your skin based on the questionnaire. Intrigued? So was I! Anyhoo, product texture test video coming right up tomorrow so stay tuned!

Happy Saturday you guys, it’s a beautiful day to go out and do whatever makes you happy! And that means hot Coconut Mocha, extra extra toasty bagel, drugstore shopping, brainless movie, and scrumptious, hearty hotpot dinner for me. It’s my way of recharging, but first, skincare. Starting it with this beautiful bi-phase hydration and radiance booster!

This surprise drop could not have arrived at a better time! I was just sharing with you guys on my IG story about the two spots on my left cheek I accidentally ‘disturbed’. I applied my trusty anti-bac gel last night but I wished I had something a little more...all in one (eg. anti-bac, anti-inflammatory, scar and mark prevention). Perhaps something like what I am unboxing to today.
.
The use of micro-needles to deliver active ingredients into localized spot is somewhat of a novel idea. We have already seen skin patches in recent months that comes embedded with micro-needles for a variety of effects (acne, skin lifting) and such products have been pretty well received with good response and pick up rate.
.
With the introduction of products that harness the effective delivery system of micro-needles such as this TISHA AC7 Spot Serum, topical anti-acne and anti-mark game has just risen to another level! I am going to start testing this micro-needle serum tonight and I will keep you guys posted. Thank you @tisha.ac7sg and @absoluteprsg for hooking me up with this innovative product!

What a beauty. What. A. Beauty! This bi-phase product is one of the two newest launch from a relatively new K-beauty brand, Gilla8 Skin Lab.
---------------------------------
Dual Super Power Radiance Essence Booster
- a bi-phase, all rounded essence that provides whitening, brightening, anti-wrinkle, antioxidant, and nourishing benefits. Containing a plethora of skin-benefiting ingredients including Niacinamide, Arbutin, Vitamin C, and more.
---------------------------------
The ingredient list looks to be a fine one with the exception of fragrances including Citronellol and Getaniol. If you have very sensitive skin, or reactive skin towards such fragrance, this product may not be too suitable for you. However, if you are okay with such fragrance and have an acne prone skin, the inclusion of those botanical oils will be beneficial to your case - one of two reasons I am comfortable with using this. The other reason being the triple treat of proven whitening effects from Niacinamide, Arbutin and Ascorbic Acid (low percentage, less staining chance).
.
This is, in my opinion, a nice complementary product to the drying effects of acne creams and medications, but I would use it sparingly and definitely only at night in my case. Either way, this is a beautiful product through and through.
