The weather has been terrible for the past month, with the haze, less or sometimes no rain at all :( and now water rationing may end only at the end of the year?! I hate this dry month. I wish it ends faster as my skin is now more dry than usual :( And you know, face is very important for me when Im out and about as dry skins makes me age faster and being in the late 20s is not helping!!! NO WRINKLES ALLOWED!
I just recently discover this NEW breakthrough product by Clinique which is called Even Better Essence Lotion which contains NMF Complex which unlocks skin's moisture potential so that your skin is instantly hydrated with long term improvement in moisturization.
Ive been using this product for a week now. The texture is soft and luminous and totally fragrance free. First thing that I notice after applying it right away is how my face was instanly brighten, soften and more radiance. It has a slight glow into it. I really hope this product will help me lighten my acne scars abit. Most important right now is hydration due to the weather. It is said that you can see results in just 4 weeks!
Just wakeup no makeup face with bed head :p

ALL PICTURES ARE NOT EDITTED!
If you really dont believe, you can go to the CLINIQUE counter and ask for sample first, try it straight on your face, you can immediately feel the change. Yeah, go to a shopping mall without makeup once in a while is OK/WORTHIED :) if you want to find a good product, right?
If you are already wearing makeup, ask the promoter girl to help you cleanse your face at the cheek or forehead area just to test, then apply makeup again later
For me, knowing the ingrdients is really important. You must know what you are going to apply to your face and what it helps to do. Here are some of the ingredients used for this new breakthrough product :
Citrullus Vulgaris (Watermelon) Extract, Pyrus Malus Fruit (Apple) Extract, Lens Esculenta (Lentil) Extract and Sodium PCA: this NMF Complex helps skin maintain optimal hydration, leaving skin plump and supple.
Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract: for improved moisturization.
Pyrus Malus (Apple) Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis (Root) Extract, and Cucumis Sativas (Cucumber) Extract: rich in antioxidants, this botanical blend of well-known brighteners help to improve skin’s clarity and radiance.
Ergothioneine and Artemia Extract: restores brightness and luminosity to skin.
Sucrose and Caffeine: known for their calming and soothing benefits, these ingredients help to reduce the effects of skin irritation due to stress or stimuli.
Cladosiphon Okamuranus Extract and Algae Extract: these algae extracts have been shown to provide exceptional calming and soothing benefits.
Tamarindus Indica Seed Extract: derived from the fruit of the tropical tamarind tree, this polysaccharide has been used in many cultures for its medicinal and anti-inflammatory properties.
For my daily regimen, I use it twice daily after cleansing, just pour it in to your palm around 2.5cm in diameter and just gently pat it around your face and not forgetting your neck as well and try avoiding the eyes area. You can follow with moisturizer and Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector for a better and faster results.
You know how our skin, being asian is more sensitive and susceptible to irritation and dehydration due to our skin physiolody as we were born with thinner skin barrier, with this product specifically formulated by Clinique for Asian skins to instantly hydrate, imporves skin texture, brightens and restores skin's luminosity. What a steal right? Also what I like about it that it has anti-irritation agents to calm and soothe our skin in this horrible weather! And therefore moisture is retained. In just 2 weeks you can see a healthy radiance and in 4 weeks, it will regulate the skin's texture and hello to a softer and smoother new skin!
