my new (and not-so-new) skin staples...

Clinelle Purifying Toner

my HG toner...I've used up 3 bottles already and surprisingly, it still works for me. my skin has this weird habit of messing up once it gets immune

PONDS White Beauty detox (lotion type)

weeks ago, I tried the yellow/gold one and found out that it works great as a moisturizer. I was scared that I might breakout but I didn't. So now I decided to give this pink variant a try and let's see. I've been using the moisturizer from Lancome Blanc Expert for quite a while now and I am no longer seeing results. Probably this is a great time to switch.

PONDS Flawless White Spots Blocking Serum and Mosbeau Cream
(ain't it obvious? I'm not into whitening...LOL!)

if you've been a reader of my blog since I started, you know that I suffered from nasty adult acne some 4-5 years ago and it left me with lots of pimple scars...and I mean, a LOT! I've tried a lot but nothing worked. until I gave in and bought Obagi. only then I was able to get rid of scars, you can check out my post here.

my skin still breaks out from time to time, depending on the season (i usually get problematic during -BER months) and when I get too experimental with other skin care brands. i honestly think I never learned my lesson..hahaha. so yes, I still get pimples and then get scarred after.

Obagi/Lancome aren't cheap, and I don't think it wouldn't hurt to find a cheaper alternative
. Since I am already using the cold cream from PONDS (which is by the way my HG makeup remover as of the moment), and now trying out their moisturizer, I also decided to consider checking out their reformulated Spots Blocking Serum. Yes, I am being experimental again but I am trying to be positive...hehee! I've been using them for almost a week now and so far, so good.

and the Mosbeau cream? I am seeing great results from my continuous Laser Hair Removal from Flawless and since I am no longer using razors, I think now is the best time to deal with my post-shaving traumas before.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed and let's hope that these new products in my regimen would work for me. I'll keep you updated!

If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.............................................................
