I used Amonche African Black soap from Barenaturals a long time ago. Haha. Nung una okay yung soap sakin. Pero napansin ko nung paubos na soap ko, bigla na lang nagkaroon ako ng malaking pimples. Nonetheless I continued using the soap tutal paubos na din hoping na matatanggal, pero hindi. So I stopped using it. Naging mahapdi na din kase para sakin yung paggamit ng soap.
Cyleina Black Pearl did nothing remarkable on my face. Parang wala man nagbago, as far as I can remember. Tapos eh after paggamit ko feeling ko madumi pa din face ko, so I stopped using it on my face at sa katawan ko na lang ginamit. Nakakaputi, oo, pero magastos din lalo na hindi pa naman siya binebenta sa Watsons nun and I had to buy online.
Cyleina tomato soap gave me pimples. Hindi ko alam bakit hindi ko hiyang pero I stopped using it nung after 2 weeks eh hindi pa din natanggal pimples ko at lalo pang dumami.
I never tried kojie-san kojic soap on my face kase takot ako sa mga nabasa kong feedbacks. However I tried Kate Jones Kojic soap before (hindi pa sikat ang kojic soap nun) and I loved it kase it whitened my face without the major peeling.
Just lately, mga 3 months before, I tried Mestiza soap on my face too, pero hindi ko siya hiyang sa face kase my face didn't feel clean and nagkapimples din ako and parang super nagdry face ko. So I stopped using it. BUT I used Mestiza soap as my HG body soap. Nakakaputi without the peeling and moisturized ang skin.
Ay oo nga pala before I tried Mestiza I tried Shulammite carrot soap too pero pareho lang ng effect ng Mestiza kaya tinigil ko din nun.
My younger sister is only 15 but she has lots of acne, as in yung malaki. So we went to the dermatologist and he recommended benzoyl peroxide 5% solution, clindamycin toner, and hypoallergenic soap. Kaso yung mga ito nabibili lang sa clinic niya. Sila na kase yung nagformulate nun. Though one good thing is that their products are cheaper compared to the products other dermatologists have. (I can buy you these products if you want and ship it if you badly want to try it.)
My face is not clear too. When I was younger there was a time na tadtad ako ng malaking pimples, which caused pimple marks on my cheeks. Now buti na lang at tumutubo na lang ang big pimples kapag magkakaperiod lang. Tapos all throughout wala naman tumutubo.
Just recently I had this one big pimple and I just applied the benzoyl peroxide 5% solution on the pimple and the next day it's flat already and hindi na masakit. So I guess it works.
Also, I've been using Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Foam for more than a year already kase my face always felt clean and moisturized after using it and hindi ako nagkapimples nung ginamit ko yun.
Actually before ang dami kong gamit sa face ko, kase nga naghahanap ako ng product na okay sa face ko. Right now ang tanging routine ko ay ito:
Morning and Night:
-Wash face with Etude House Baking Powder Cleansing Foam
-Apply Human Heart Nature Sunflower Oil all over the face
-Use Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay mask
Ayan lang. Mga more than 1 month ko pa lang gamit yung HHN Sunflower Oil. I've read interesting reviews kasi na it lightens pimple marks. Eh yun talaga gusto ko maachieve without having to resort to diamond peeling kase wala akong time. As of now wala pang major improvements with regards to the lightening of the pimple marks pero I noticed na naging super smooth face ko.
Yung Innisfree mask naman magandang gamitin kase your face feels a lot cleaner after using it. And smoother as well.
Sabi nung derma samin ng kapatid ko, even without resorting to peeling, nagpapalit naman yung balat talaga, yun nga lang medyo matagal. I'm still waiting for my skin to renew, or something like that kase ayoko din gumastos ng malaki for this.
Ayan lang. Hope I somehow helped. Sorry mahabang post at unorganized ang thoughts ko. Haha.
