Nivea – Intensive Moisture Body Milk

collage_20160320100130312_20160320100228754.jpgEveryone who goes to drugstore will know Nivea. It is known for its pots and pots of oh-so-luscious-and-creamy moisturising creams, and you just know that your skin will feel well hydrated once you slather on one of those pots.  If I ran out of body creams, Nivea will be the first brand that comes into my mind.

I first bought it for my mom who was warded in the hospital. The air in the room seems to be drying, and I noticed that my mom (who was already on drips) had wrinkly dry skin on her arms. So I bought one small bottle for her to slather on after her shower. The skin on her arms did seem to look and feel more hydrated so I decided to use it on myself too.

You see, the skin on my legs do feel quite dry and if I do not work it out (also known as sitting-around-and-binge-watching-TV at home), the skin oils do not seem to surface and I will experience dry and itchy skin the next day. So as a precaution, I will slather on body creams to hydrate the skin before I leave the house. However, the creams tend to take time to “dry out”, so I needed something quick. So when I started using Nivea Intensive Moisture Body Milk, it does seem to solve my problem. It was fast drying (sinks into my skin in seconds!) and I do not feel the annoying dry itch on my legs.

This is definitely my go to product but do remember not to keep it when the scent is gone or smells “wierd”. It just means the product has gone bad. 🙂

Are you a regular user of Nivea? What do you think of this product?

Dr. Wu – Intensive Acnecur Spot Treatment with BHA

Dr Wu Intesive Acnecur Spot Treatment with BHA.jpgFirst let me apologise for the blur image of the product on the left. 🙂 As you can see I’m clearly not that good in the photography department (HAHAHA!!) Anyway, here’s my other Dr. Wu product that I absolutely love – for my acne of course. I had previously blogged about the Dr. Wu Mandelic Acid product that helps to remove dead skin cells without causing irritation to my sensitive skin. this is yet another product that I would recommend to those who want to treat their pimples and pus-oozing acnes (okay I’m being too graphic).

About the Product

From the Dr Wu website in Singapore, it states that this is an award winning product. It goes on to say that “DR.WU’s unique ACNECUR formula is clinically proven to clear up blemishes and also visibly reduce blemish marks. This revolutionary blemish treatment contains a blemish-fighting complex, Bio-Sulfur and Salicylic Acid, to reduce and prevent acne problems in all stages and also helps existing pimples and acne disappear quickly. It also contains high potency Niacinamide (B3) and Tranexamic Acid to even out skin tone and visibly reduce marks left behind by blemishes.”  The benefits of the main ingredients are as follows:

Niacinamide (B3): Its anti-inflammatory properties help to soothe the skin and promote skin rejuvenation.

Sulphur: A vital mineral that is a natural antiseptic with healing and anti-inflammatory properties.

Tranexamic Acid: A whitening ingredient known to prevent spots and blemishes.

Salicylic Acid: An effective acne treatment ingredient that helps to clear and prevent pimples.

The key ingredients in the product are: Niacinamide, Sulfur, Tranexamic Acid, Salicylic Acid,
Target: Oily and Acne Prone Skin

Using The Product

I usually will apply this product in small quantities on the inflammed pimple or pus-filled acne. This product will not work well with acne that is just severely inflammed and has no sign of pus coming out. The product will dry out the pus and it will come off by itself when you wash your face etc. There is no need to use our itchy fingers to peel it off. Remember, peeling it off means scars!! This product is safe if you apply 1-3 times a day (ie morning, noon and night) but so far, I’ve only applied it at night coz I do not want to dry out my acne too much. It contains BHA so please wear sunscreen if you are applying this in the day time.

Where to Buy the Product

In Singapore, you can by this product from Watsons. Or buy them when you’re in Taiwan!
