Review – DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil & DHC Pore Essence

.

Just a while ago, I was delighted to receive a hand delivery from Watsons Singapore and it contains a couple of beauty products that I’m actually quite curious to try out.

Here’s a peek of what I have received – DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil, DHC Pore Essence, SuperDrug Swiss Apple Overnight Skin Renewal Serum, Watsons Bamboo Vinegar & Milk Exfoliating Foot Mask, Avalon Organics Biotin B-Complex Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner. These products are exclusively available at selected Watsons stores in Singapore. (read below for store locators)

So let me start with the ones that interest me most, the newly launched DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil and DHC Pore Essence.

.

DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil – S$37.50 / 150ml

Due to the popular demand of the bestselling botanical DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, DHC has specially created a milder version DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil that helps to effectively remove dirt and impurities while maintaining skin’s moisture levels.

It is formulated with natural Lavender Essential Oil, Plural Amino Acid and Moringa Seed.

It is believed that skin problems such as clogged pores and skin irritation can occur if makeup and impurities are not properly removed, which I fully agree with it! DHC Deep Cleansing Oil solves this problem without stripping off your natural moisture.

This new mild cleansing oil actually contains 2 types of cleansing contents – regular cleansing ingredients and gemini amphiphilic cleansing ingredients. While regular cleansing ingredients contain water and oil dissolvable contents, gemini cleansing ingredients are oil in water emulsions. This helps the latter fulfill both “powerful cleansing” and moisture effect” simultaneously by enabling both oil and water contents to merge together.

In addition, this revolutionary formula disperses oil into ultra fine emulsion, causing makeup and impurities to rise to the surface while preventing re-absorption.

Hence, it is claimed that even the thickest makeup can be removed easily. I decided to do a test to see if the claim is true. Yes, this mild cleansing oil actually removes the permanent makeup effortlessly.

DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil – S$37.50

Due to the popular demand of DHC Deep Cleansing Oil, Watsons has once again specially brought in DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil, a milder version that effectively removes dirt and impurities.

Proper cleansing is one of the most important step for a healthy-looking skin. Do you know that skin problems such as clogged pores and skin irritation can occur if make-up and impurities are not properly removed?

The newest DHC Mild Touch Cleansing Oil, enriched with natural Lavender Essential Oil, is claimed to solve this problem while maintaining skin’s moisture levels.

It contains two types of cleansing contents — regular cleansing ingredients and gemini amphiphilic cleansing ingredients. While regular cleansing ingredients contain water and oil dissolvable contents, gemini cleansing ingredients are oil in water emulsions. This helps the latter fulfill both “powerful cleansing” and “moisture effect” simultaneously by enabling both oil and water contents to merge together.

Furthermore, this revolutionary formula disperses oil into ultra fine emulsion, causing makeup and impurities to rise to the surface while preventing re-absorption. It guarantees that even the thickest make-up can be removed easily!

It is also formulated with hydrating ingredients such as Plural Amino Acid and Moringa Seed that help strengthens skin’s functions for a fresh and hydrated complexion.

Best Review Vitamin C Serum

 

 

Cellex-C Advanced-C Serum

Product claims : This formulation contains 17.5% vitamin C in a com- bination of free form and hydro- lyzed ascorbic acid to maximize visible benefits to the skin in the shortest possible time.

 

 

DDF C3 Plus Serum

Product claims : An extra light, tri-complex Vitamin C serum synerg- istically formulated with penta- peptide (Matrixyl) to maximize visible improvement of fine lines, wrinkles and loss of skin tone and firmness. Helps increase the production of collagen for a more lifted facial contour. Provides preventative as well as restorative results.

 

 

DHC Vitamin C Essence

Product claims : Our most concentrated antioxidant treat- ment yet utilizes vitamin C to strengthen skin by boosting its natural defenses. Research shows that antioxidants, such as vitamin C, are perhaps the most effective ingredients in minimizing the visible signs of age. Vitamin C Essence has excellent penetrating power and is packaged in a special drop tube to help you target the areas that need it most and minimize waste. Use it any time to help protect skin against the destructive elements that cause visible aging.

 

 

La Roche-Posay Biomedic Potent-C 10.5 Concentrate

Product claims : This intensive wrinkle corrector significantly reduces facial fine lines and wrinkles. Improves dull looking skin and uneven texture.

 

 

 

MD Skincare by Dr. Dennis Gross Hydra-Pure Vitamin C Serum

Product claims : Promotes optimal skin function with a high per- formance complex of Vitamin C. This nourishing serum contains three forms of Vitamin C to provide maximum efficacy. Vitamin C works in the lipid-soluble and water-soluble layers of the skin so this potent and effective serum has been created to deliver the appropriate form of Vitamin C to each layer of the skin. Vitamin C is singled out as the most potent anti-aging ingredient, requiring its own formula with multiple forms of Vitamin C to provide maximum benefits to the skin without irritation.

 

Why do we need Vitamin C serum?

Vitamin C serum helps to make fresh collagen and elastin in the skin. It addresses the appearance of the lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, and loss of firmness and elasticity that occur with aging. The ultimate goal in skin care is to encourage the skin’s own collagen-producing machinery and stimulate collagen repair.

Things to note

Vitamin C serum is a skin-stimulating products usually may leave your skin somewhat irritated, especially initially. All you need to do is to seal up the skin with feel good moisturizer.

If you still encounter irritation after two weeks, STOP using the product immediately.
