Product Review: My Thoughts on Epionce Renewal Facial Lotion

Sunday, June 24, 2012

     Yay! I'm thinking of having another giveaway on my 100th follower. Thank you so much for the support! More product reviews on organic skin care and random stuffs are in line so watch out for it. For the mean time, I will just make a short review about  Epionce. This product came from the birthday blog sale giveaway that I joined last January. I already finished the Epionce Renewal Facial Lotion and it's just a sample size (15ml) which has around 30% product left on the tube when I received. I wasn't able to see if the product helped me in renewing the surface of my skin. My skin condition: Oily T-zones, large pores, dark marks from pimples and freckles on both cheeks.
WHO IT'S FORIdeal for all skin types, especially combination-oily and aging, who want comfortable, smooth skin.

Meadowfoam and Flax Seed Complex is anti-inflammatory. Apple Fruit Extract lightens and brightens. Rose Hip, Safflower, and Avocado Complex softens and smooths.

HOW TO USE ITAfter cleansing, massage gently into skin until product is full absorbed. Use both morning and night. Apply 1-3 times daily or as needed.

product info taken from:
  • The product has this scent that I cannot describe but I can tolerate it.
  • A pea size is enough to spread over my entire face.
  • It's sticky and leaves my face with a shine that looks like I just rubbed a baby oil on my face.
  • Since this is just a sample product, I wasn't able to gauge the effect on my skin.
  • I use this every night for two weeks and gave me a glow on my face the next day. 
  • No product information, again this is a sample product.
  • Will probably not purchase a full-sized one, I know this type of facial lotion is expensive.

     But I'm happy that I bought this so now I know what's the feeling of using expensive face creams. I'm not ready to splurge, maybe in the near future where I need to invest on anti-aging creams, serums, etc. 

     What's the most expensive skin care product you've tried? Share!

Good Times!~


Product Review: Dove Intensive Moisturizing Cream

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

     Last month, my mom gave me a tub of this moisturizer and I'm very eager to use it because my legs tend to become dry during cold months. I told myself that this product will work wonders with my dry skin because Dove is known as the moisturizing product from their ads and it also claims to be gentle on skin. Many of us have known Dove since our childhood days. I still remember when my relatives abroad brought different variants of Dove soaps and lotions as "pasalubong".
Dove Intensive Moisturizing Cream
Dove Intensive Cream for complete daily skin care
The intensive cream from Dove offfers rich care and a pleasant feel on the skin during and after application. It combines nourishing ingredients and a generous dose of active moisturizer.
Dove Intensive-Cream- for soft and cared for skin. Especially suitable for very dry skin areas.
size: 150ml

price: free

place bought: Saudi Arabia

ingredients: Water, Petrolatum, Praffinum Liquidum, Glyceri, Stearic Acid, Glycol Stearate, Triethanolamine, Glyceryl Stearate, Cera Microcristallina, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearamide Amp, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Carbomer,Disodium EDTA, Perfume, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Pentaerylthrityl, Tetra-Di-T-Butyl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Dilauryl Thiodiproportionate, Alpha- Isomethyl Ionone, Butylphenyl Methylpropional Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclo Hexene Carboxaldehyde, Limonene, Linalool, CI 77891
Dove Intensive Moisturizing Cream
product well sealed with foil
Dove Intensive Moisturizing Cream
texture is creamy and thick

What I like:
  • The tub is cute, actually i like the color of this better than Nivea creams, well-sealed and has manufacturing and expiry date on the side.
  • The smell is not overpowering, smells like Dove soap- white variant.
  • The texture is creamy and thick, a little goes a long way.
  • Has English translation since it came from Middle East.
What I don't like:
  • Unhygienic since it's in a tub.
  • Very moisturizing that it will make your skin oily if you use more than what it is intended.
  • Poor absorption of the product, takes more than 5 minutes in my case.
  • Can be very greasy if applied in the morning.
Will I repurchase?No, I like Glysolid more better than this.

     I give this a 3/5 rating. I think this product suits people with very dry skin. A little amount should be use in dry areas like elbows, knees, heels and hands because the product can get very sticky and greasy. Use a spatula when scooping out the product from the tub to avoid contamination.

     Do you use moisturizing products like Dove on dry skin?What other products can you recommend?

Good Times!~
