Review – Paula’s Choice Resist Remarkable Skin Lightening Lotion

.

.

When I was younger, I love the sun. I will go sun bathing and water skiing almost every weekend. And the best thing is that, I do not believe in sun protection. I do not wear sunscreen (I hate the oiliness) until much later in my 30s. Sadly, these stupid habits have caused serious problems in my later life – photo aging.

So as early as in my late 20s, I began to notice pigmentations below the eye areas and on the cheek areas. The pigmentation is especially obvious on my right cheek area and these sun spots are size of 4 rice grains. In order to treat these aging spots, on top of my whitening products, I have tried various non-invasive treatments like IPL, Pigment Laser and Pixel. There is no visible result from IPL and Pixel at all. Although Pigment Laser is able to help remove the sun spots (on my right cheek) initially but after months later the spots reappeared again and bigger than what they were before. I almost give up on finding ways to remove them until I came across Paula’s Choice Resist Remarkable Skin Lightening Lotion.

Before I have used this product, I never believe in skin lightening / whitening skincare products and their efficacies. Well after trying numerous whitening products, most of them can only help to create a fairer skin but not able to lighten the pigmentation. So far only Paula’s Choice Resist Remarkable Skin Lightening Lotion can do that little magic!

Achieve Flawless Skin By Removing Dead Surface Cells

..

Removal of dead cell buildup is truly the key building block toward your goal of flawless skin and AHA is one of the best ingredient to do the job.

..

..

AHAs are theorized to work by loosening the bond between dead corneum cells, dissolving part of the surface intercellular cement that holds dead epidermal cells together. This makes it easy to remove dead cells from the skin surface, which has a positive effect on many conditions :

..

The Benefits Of Removal Of Dead Cell Buildup
Using AHA & BHA

1. Removal of dead cell buildup helps to smooth the surface of dry, sun-damaged, or aging skin, improving roughness and making wrinkles appear much less deep. Result on an aging skin can become apparent in a very short period of time.

Ask Shirleen A Question – Vexed Over DermaRX Products

.

Reader’s Questions 1

I have been searching for skincare products advices and reviews online since like forever. I keep reading and reading various blogs n thank god I finally came across yours through word-of-mouth. I am very very impressed by your knowledge and your matter-of-fact, no bullshit, heartfelt and professional advices, reviews and comments (there’s so many bloggers that write rubbish and one has to do many researches to make sure they are not following someone’s advice blindly). And the best thing is you’re also Singaporean (I think? Cos you take about the sale in SG) so you can empathise with the local climate here, which has  everything to do our skin condition.

Have you heard or use products by Derma RX? I have been using them for abt 5 years now and suddenly I feel it’s super-ex to continue using them while I wonder if the products still have any effect on me (but I must say it improved my skin a lot since the 1st day I went to them). Recently I was recommended by a friend to try out Dermalogica products. I have spent lots of money over the last 5 years to improve my skin and I am skeptical to switch to a new brand like Dermalogical cos I am afraid if Dermalogical isn’t that good,what if it makes my skin worse and then all the money I spent the last 5 years will go down to drain… I am currently 33 years old so am concern about skin aging and pigmentation. Like you wrote in your blog, we can’t turn back the clock so the only way to maintain our “youth” is through skin products that are effective instead of some over-hyped, over-priced rubbish that beauty industry tries to sell you.

I only just recently heard of the book “Don’t go to a cosmetic counter without me” by Paula Begoun. I have not read it yet but I checked online about her products “Paula CHoices” and am wondering if it’s really that great.

Lastly, you have one great blog and I am so glad I came across it!
