What Is Cosmeceutical? Does Cosmeceutical Differ From Any Other Cosmetics?

.

.

Cosmeceuticals are essentially cosmetics, have been shown to demonstrate potential benefits for skin rejuvenation. They are called cosmeceutricals because even though they are cosmetics they do show some mild activity similar to that of a pharmaceutical cream so, Cosmetic + Pharmaceutical = Cosmeceutical.

But some doctors believe that Cosmeceuticals fall into the gray area between a product with no active ingredients (like plain old mineral oil) and a prescription drug that must be regulated by the FDA.

The term ‘Cosmeceutical’ is used by many skin-care companies, especially for products sold or endorsed by dermatologists, to give the impression that the products have more effective or more biologically active ingredients that just ordinary cosmetics. As more and more doctors get into selling or endorsing skin-care products, you will hear more and more about cosmeceuticals.

Bawang’s 1st Natural Herbal Shampoo – Are They Safe To Use?

.

Last Friday, I’ve attended the BAWANG Shampoo Bloggers Discussion Session to discuss the recent saga on the counterfeit and ingredient issues and at the same time to preview their newly launched shampoo Royal Wind è¿½å³° and the spokesman is Faye Wong!

BAWANG, claimed to be the #1 natural herbal shampoo, has hit Singapore a few years ago and has since been very popular with heavy advertisements and their first spokesman was Jacky Chan. Many of you may have this perception that Bawang is designed for consumers who are 40s and above. But in fact, it is targeted for all age groups including young women with permed/bonding/colored hair.

How I Prevent My Skincare Products From Losing Their Efficacies

.

When it comes to efficacy of skincare product, packaging plays an important role here. Although there are many good skincare products in the market but unfortunately most of them are not able to score high ratings due to the poor packaging. When a skincare product is packed in a jar, frequent opening of the jar and exposure to the air and light will cause the nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants in the cream to break down, deteriorate and lose the efficacy.

.

This kind of packaging means that the air- and light-sensitive ingredients will become ineffective within a short period of time after the container is opened. Not to be surprised, some of the products that are displayed on the cosmetic shelves have in fact lost the efficacy even before you start using them. One of the best packaging is the airtight opaque plumping bottle.

Review – Benefit You’re Bluffing!
To Be Discontinued In Singapore?

.

.

I was briefing introduced to Benefit You’re Bluffing! during the recent Benefit Brow Bar Event. Before the discovery, it never cross my mind that it is vital to create a concealer for skin redness as I feel that a usual concealer or a color primer will able to do the task too. But after some testing and researching on coverage products for redness, I realized I was wrong after all.

I have lately been troubled with rosacea and typical signed of rosacea are patchy areas of red, tiny red bumps or the visibility of small blood vessels on my face. Almost every other day, I will suffer from abounding red bumps or red blood vessels on my nose, chin and cheek areas. The red bumps are especially annoying and they are usually VERY itchy as well.

Frankly, I’m not too sure what is the cause for these redness but I believe they can be due to rosacea, skin sensitivity, bacteria, dryness or the skin-irritant ingredients that contain in my skincare products.

I have tried using the Makeup For Ever High Definition Primer in green which is said to help neutralize the redness but the result is disappointing. This green primer can only minimal reduce the overall redness by 30% but it cannot conceal the red bumps at all!

Although the Benefit Erase Paste is slightly better than the green primer but it doesn’t cover the redness that well.

Review – Estee Lauder Soft Clean Silky Hydrating Lotion

..

I have came across Estee Lauder Soft Clean Silky Hydrating Lotion at one of the beauty review site and it is reviewed as one of the “BEST TONER” in the market. So to give it a benefit of the doubt, I decided to give it a try and to see if it is what it has claimed to be.

For the last couple of years, I have never stopped searching for a good toner. I have tried and tested numerous toners but I finally realized that it is so hard to find a suitable toner for my skin type – rosacea and sensitive skin.
