Product Review: Eskinol Spot-less White Facial Deep Cleanser With Pure Calamansi Extracts

Saturday, March 09, 2013

     Hi, hi hi! I'm back with another review. I told you in my previous post that I wanted to share new products on my skin care regimen and makeup stash that I'm currently using. So let's start with this toner/cleanser. I'm sure you've seen this product a lot of times and I presume a member or two in the family have tried this. This product has been around if I'm not mistaken since my childhood days and I remember seeing my mother using this before and after washing her face. If you're thinking this toner is classic, yes it is. 

     Eskinol is classic and very effective that's why until now it's still here unlike other brands being discontinued in the market. When I saw that Janet of Journey on Beauty made a comprehensive review of all Eskinol variants, I'm convinced that the quality of this product has been tested through times and if this is re-formulated I'm sure that the new formulation is way better and improved with added features. I'm so happy that I've got a chance to try this toner because my skin loves it. Read more and see why I repurchased the bigger bottle of this product.

     Eskinol provides products which are specifically formulated for the Filipina skin. Its range of products is known to effectively solve oily skin problems and pimples!

     Eskinol Facial Deep Cleansers contain Micro-cleanse Anti-Bacterial Formula that removes pimple-causing dirt left from washing with soap. It also removes excess oil and make-up to make your skin truly clean. Use Eskinol Facial Deep Cleanser and avoid pimples and other skin problems from coming back

R- I emptied the small bottle in a month's time.
L- Currently using this 135ml bottle every other day.
~Removes deep-seated dirt, excess oil, and makeup with micro-cleanse anti-bacterial formula
~With pure Calamansi extracts known to whiten skin
~With vitamin C derivatives to help lighten dark spots in as early as 1 week for an even skin tone

size: 4.6 fl.oz. /135ml

price: 49.75 php(Around $1.20+)

place bought: Watsons Health and Beauty Store, Sm Fairview

instructions for use: Moisten a piece of cotton and apply on face and neck. Repeat until no trace of dirt is seen on the cotton. Use anytime and anywhere to get a truly clean skin.

ingredients: Water, Alcohol Denat., Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Perfume, Citrus Microcarpa (Calamansi) Extract, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Menthol, CI 47005

What I like:
  • The price- cheapest among the toners that I've tried.
  • My skin feels squeaky clean after use.
  • There is a cooling sensation and  just a little sting
  • Able to cleanse deep-seated dirt and heavy makeup.
  • Leaves skin matte and oil-free.
  • Wide selection of toners for different skin needs.
  • Lightened some dark spots after 2 weeks of every other day use.

What I don't like:
  • Caused dryness on some parts of my skin.

Will I repurchase? Yes because truly soap is not enough to cleanse that deep-seated dirt. 

     I give this a 4.75/5 rating. Other than the faint alcohol smell and the dryness, I really liked seeing my face squeaky clean after using this product. I noticed some of my pimple marks have lightened. I'm not saying that this product alone made those blemishes lighter, applying this every other day somehow helped those unsightly dark spots appear less visible. I'm also giddy to try other variants of Eskinol but methinks I need to use this continuously if I really want to see maximum results and if it will make pimple marks vanish after long-term use.

     Have you tried Eskinol? What's your favorite variant? Thanks for sharing! Happy weekend

Good Times!~

Skin Care Hauls+ My First Zalora Purchase

Thursday, August 30, 2012

     How's everyone? I miss you guys! :D Finally I'm back to regular programming after being MIA. I'm already getting used to my father's situation and I'm very thankful to those who prayed for me and my dad. Thank you Lord for giving us patience and strength to cope with the obstacles that we're facing now.

     This is another overdue post but I know it's worth sharing since I'm adding a new skin care product to my regimen. If you follow me on twitter, I mentioned in my tweets weeks ago that I'm suffering from acne breakouts. Maybe it's because of stress or some hormonal changes in my body. I didn't changed my skin care routine for more than months now so I really don't know the culprit behind those red and nasty zits. I'm tired of just letting it go- my pimple per se. I usually ignore a pimple or two before but they left my face with dark spots/marks. So I decided to look for a budget friendly pimple spot treatment to lessen irritation and post acne marks. After reading reviews and comparing one product from another, I decided to gave these zit zappers a try plus I restocked on Maybelline Make Up Remover (Eye and Lip) and Purederm Make Up Cleansing Tissues.
Celeteque Acne Solutions Acne Spot Corrector Gel
Maybelline Make Up Remover Eye and Lip
Quick FX Pimple Eraser
Purederm Makeup Cleansing Tissues
     Maybe you're already familiar with Celeteque's Acne Solution line and I guess most of you have tried this pimple treatment. I will say my thoughts about this zit zapper soon. If you're wondering what Quick FX Pimple Eraser is, then wait for my review :D This pimple eraser promises to lighten pimple marks and prevent new pimples from popping up. Been using this for a week now and haven't seen any drastic changes on the intensity of the pigmentation. I will update you guys once I've seen some lightening on my dark spots. 

     Anyhoo, Yay to my first Zalora purchase!!! My eyes are glued on this loafers months ago but quite hesitant to buy this online because I'm afraid that it won't give me a nice fit. I'm not sure if I'm a size 8 or 9 which always happens when I'm buying a new pair of shoes on the store itself.

     Sooo happy with my first purchase! Will definitely buy my next pair at Zalora again :D Another outfit post soon?! Thanks for visiting my blog dearies! Don't forget to join my 1st Year Anniversary Giveaway here:

Product Review: Nivea Visage Soft Facial Cleansing Wipes

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

     Sorry for the lack of post. After watching Breaking Dawn, Edward Cullen doesn't stop swirling on my mind so I forgot that I have to review some products that I purchased a week ago. 

     On to the review, this facial wipes is just a substitute to my favorite Neutrogena facial wipes that I've been using more than a year now. The SA said that Neutrogena is always out of stock these past few days. I have no choice, I ran out of facial wipes so I have to buy Nivea instead. This wipes can be used for face, neck and eyes. You can see on the upper left portion of the packaging the word INNOVATION meaning new soft fleece with intensively cleaning micro-sponges and because of this I'm sold.

     The new generation of Nivea Visage Soft Facial Cleansing Wipes with intensively cleansing micro sponges guarantee an extraordinary thorough yet mild cleansing. Effect: Thoroughly  remove all traces of make-up, purify and tone the skin in one step. Alcohol free, the new soft fleece wipes are also suitable for sensitive skin. Result: Deeply purified, your skin looks fresh and clean.  It feels soft and smooth. For every skin type/Ophthalmologically tested, skin compatability, Dermatologically approved

     By the way, I tested this for a week and I used this for removing my BB ream, eyebrow powder and eyeliner on my face.

Eyeliner on the upper left corner, BBcream on the middle, lipstick stain on the lower left . Sorry for the blurry pic.
size: 25 wipes

price: 52 php (Around $1.20)

place bought: Tickles, Trinoma

direction for use: pull out one wipe and gently cleanse face and eyes with the micro-sponge fleece. carefully re-seal the pack label after use.

What I like:
  • Soft to use and take off most of my makeup.
  • I only use 1 sheet for my entire face.
  • I can also use this in removing my eyeliner.
  • No irritation or breakouts or whatsoever.
  • It has a light powdery scent that is not overpowering.
  • Manufacturing and expiry date is printed on the packaging.
  • Affordable for a 25 pcs. wipes compared to other brands.
What I don't like:
  • There is no English translation in the Arabic text at the back of the package.
  • There is no product ingredients.
  • Not easily accessible, I need to go to Trinoma to buy this and it's a bit far away from where I live.
  • I need to wipe my eyelids more than three times to remove my eyeliner so I use baby oil first so I can swipe it only once.
Will I repurchase?Maybe Yes, If my favorite Neutrogena facial wipes is still OOS. 

     I give this 3.75/5 rating. As for removing dirt and makeup in my face this does the job but you still need to use facial wash to remove traces of makeup. Using this wipes is just an extra step so that your sure you cleanse your face thoroughly then follow your cleanse-tone-moisturize routine before hitting the sack. 

     Do you use facial wipes before washing you face? What brand do you use?

Good Times!~
