It’s the time of month for me and with all the hormone changes, I’ve been suffering from an acne outbreak, especially on my forehead and chin area. It took a while for me to recover from the cystic acne and I’m so glad that they have subsided. Lately, to counter the redness and post-acne scars, I’ve been indulging in a facial spa ritual with two products from Exuviance – Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish and Bionic Oxygen Facial Masque.
I’m sure most people are new to Exuviance since it’s not an over-the-counter brand you encounter in Sephora or the drugstores. Exuviance is an advanced skincare line developed by the NeoStrata Company for beauty salons. Utilising the uniquely formulated hydroxy acid technologies like Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) and Lactobionic Acid, these powerful ingredients are incorporated into the skincare line to enhance and correct the skin’s renewal process.
PROMO CODE AT THE END, DON’T MISS OUT!
Have inflamed skin? Or redness from irritation/acne? Sadly, that describes my skin on most days. I wasn’t born with the luxury of having good, flawless skin. In fact, I suffered from major acne woes during my secondary school days. Thankfully, with proper skincare steps and with age, they have subsided though I still get to see a cluster of them once almost every month during days when my period approaches, and it’s still annoying.
Also, recently, I encountered an allergic reaction while using a skincare product which turned the skin beside my nose areas red and itchy. I thought, what better way to test out the Exuviance Anti Redness Calming Serum than the combination of acne/allergy? It was definitely a risky choice to make but I wanted to go ahead to see if it lives up to its name!
The serum comes in a dark, forest green bottle, which I definitely didn’t expect because most skincare products come in lightly-coloured packaging to portray that “gentle and fresh” image. Besides, over the years of my encounter with skincare products, I have taken a strong liking to products that come with pumps, evidently, due to hygiene and ease of dispense. Hence, seeing that the serum has a pump head, I was quite delighted. No more messy pouring out of products on the hand!
