Abidis – Locion Equilibriante sin Alcohol (Balancing Lotion with no Alcohol)

wp-1486092221476.jpgOkay this is a product that I must talk about. Its Abidis Locion Equilibriante (Abidis Balancing Lotion). It has no Alcohol and aims to hydrate the skin while you tone it.

About the Product

I was told by my beautician at Face Essensuals that Abidis is a Spanish brand and they usually produce their products in small quantities. This particular product is a Balancing Lotion that is suitable for combination skin or oily skin. It has a minty flora scent and the skin feels hydrated when the lotion is applied (but not hydrated enough to be used on its own). When the watery Lotion drys out, you will feel a very thin coat on your skin that seems to seal in the moisture. You can use any moisturizer on top of this Lotion. The Lotion is bluish green in colour (I have used up the bottle in the picture) and is very watery, often leaving a mild cooling sensation after you apply for a few seconds.

Using the Product

Currently, I am using this Lotion together with my Physiogel Calming Relief Face Cream. The Lotion is not drying and beats the other Toners  or Lotions from the japanese or korean off the rack products. It did improve my skin hydration in the day and helped me stave away from acne due to dry or dehydrated skin. At night, I use another Abidis product on top of the above (less is more) to boost healing and recovery of my skin. I hope to share it with you soon.

Where to Purchase the Item

I bought this from my beautician, Face Essensuals, located at Midpoint Orchard along Orchard Road. You will not find this product on the shelves and will have to purchase through salons or main distributor for this product. The photo of the product in the picture is the old packaging and retails at S$56 a bottle. Please call Serina at Face Essensuals to order your bottle as stock is usually limited to ensure freshness.

Abidis – Peeling A

Abidis Peeling A.jpgAbidis Cosmetica is one of the brands under Laboratorios Ximart, which is located in ArrigorriagaI, in the province of Bizkaia, in the north of Spain. Laboratorios Ximart has been doing business for six decades, producing and distributing cosmetics, and hairdressing and personal hygiene products which are sold in twenty five countries in several continents.

My beautician / aesthetician from Face Essensuals recommended me to Abidis Peeling A to improve the clarity of my skin which clogs easily. The product ingredients can be found from the image that I’ve included in this post on the left.

Using the Product

This product is for cleansing and peeling, and it can only be used on dry skin. The product is white and dense, and the texture feels like the Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque but more moist.  Apply the product thinly on dry skin and leave it to dry. I leave it on for 3-5 mins usually to benefit from some mild peeling effect to help exfoliate my skin. Given my combination skin condition, my aesthetician recommended that I use this product in the morning, before I prepare for work. I can then wash off the product like a cleanser before I moisturize and put make up on my skin. One can leave the product on till it dries. After I washed off the product, I find my skin hydrated and smooth! After the 3 steps, I find my foundation adhere better on my skin! I also do not experience any over sensitive skin or redness on my skin. Another point to take note is that this product can only be used 2-3 times a week but not every day.

Where to Buy the Product

You can purchase this mild peeling product from Face Essensuals in Singapore, or from online shop Ayurin.

Will I restock this product – probably because this product is pricey! Its about S$125 a tube though a tube can last for a long time.
