First Impression: Flawless White Plus Cream

I’m dealing with lots of hyperpigmentation. Flawless’ resident doctor recommended their White Plus Cream to lighten spots. She knows I have contact dermatitis. She said it’s difficult to cure my acne because of it. I agree with her. She only recommends superficial products like this which is risky for my condition. Total amount of products she recommended was 15k pesos. Oh hell naw. I wont spend that amount on anything I’m not confident with. I checked and felt skeptical because of the ingredients. I still bought one because it’s the most affordable in the list and I also have dry patches that need moisturizing.

I used this for 3 days as spot treatment for dry patches and dark spots. It effectively moisturized dry areas. It’s a thick cream so you’ll only need a small amount. Once absorbed, it doesnt look oily. It’s more like dewy. My skin feel so soft when I used this. The packaging is sturdy and can be brought while you’re travelling.

Unfortunately, it triggered my contact dermatitis. I have rashes on sensitive areas mainly on the cheeks. It must be the lactic acid, emulsifying wax, peppermint extract or the fragrance…. Which reminds me of what a grandma would use. It feels a bit heavy. It’s not for commuting or other activities that involves sweating. This is ideal for night time on dry and mature skin. Its dewy finish makes skin look healthy. You can get this in their clinics and some SM Department Stores.

Review: Flawless Pimple Injection

Good evening. This is another clinic service review. This is my quick remedy for cystic acne. I do not like to put spot treatment creams/gels anymore for those big ones because it will take forever before they’ll go away.

Im used to injections since I was a kid, but not for the face. I had my first pimple injection when I was in 2nd year college. I think that was 2013. I saw how convenient it was. You dont have to let the cystic acne stay for a week+ anymore! 🙂

What to expect:
-Pricking and extraction of acne if it’s not in the skin.
-A little pain
-Acne will subside a few hours after.
-Acne will be gone completely in 24 hours or 2 days max.

Here’s my before & after:

Left- before the treatment ; Right- 2 days after

Pros:
– Available at all Flawless clinics
– The dermatologist was very nice and accommodating, had it done at SM Makati
– Quick solution
– Cystic acne will be gone after 1 or 2 days tops, for me.
– This one didn’t cause deep acne scar/pit.

Cons:
– Pricey compared before (new price is 150 pesos, old price was 100 pesos)
– Might cause deep scar IF applied too much (all pimple injections are like that, not just in this clinic)

I like how it works on me since I get occasional breakouts that are huge. If you are used to needles, then there’s no problem for you to try this one. My dermatologist at Makati Med Plaza also has this service for 100 pesos. But, their clinic’s cutoff is 6pm. If you cant make it and have this done at later time, I suggest your book an appointment at Flawless because their cutoff is 8pm. 🙂

Skin Update: Facials & Pimple Injection

Good evening! I have a confession to make… I didn’t go to school for 2 days (first Thursday and Friday of 2013) because I’m lacking confidence again. It’s just that some of my classmates really notice everything. I’m afraid they would insult me. 😦

I wanna say sorry because I didn’t post any picture of my skin condition now.

You all know that my face broke out real bad. I had my facial at Dermstrata last Thursday. It was my first time to have a facial at a different spa/clinic. It removed the pimples but it left some ugly things.  Ice pick scars and dark spots are left now. The icepick scars are deep & dark. :(. I never experienced that from my first ever facial spa, Suay Skin. I’m used to facials and pricking. The Suay Skin employee did a good job because everytime I had a facial, she pricked too but I swear, it did not leave any deep scarring like that. Maybe the Dermstrata employee has “heavy hands”.
