Helloooo there happy faces! How are you guys doing this October? Can you believe it's fall already? It's almost Halloween!! WOohoooO I haven't decided if I should go as Daisy Duck, Snow White, or a cotton ball....
Have you guys tried cleansers and acne products and for some frustrating reason there's always little tiny bumps and ding you can never get rid of? or the whole product just doesn't work? Well that's what happened to me. Even though I can say my skin isn't a field of pimples and blemishes; I do occasionally break out around my T-zone (mostly around my nose area, chin, and a little bit between my eyebrows). If you guys don't know where the T-zone is here's an illustration
Although this isn't my picture, guilty as charge I thought she did a great job so you can get an idea (it was in Korean but I did my best to translated it in engrish.) Anyways my friend recommended trying Shiseido's pureness collection because I was tried of getting random pimples, and I feel like perhaps she might be on to something since her skin is absolutely flawless!
Anyways as we can see....actually the picture is really blurybut the Pureness Collection is all in blue so you won't be able to miss it if your searching for it at the Shiseido counter haha.
The cleanser is thick and creamy with blue micro beads, as it goes on it turns white and as you continue to lather you can start feeling a minty effect on your face, ish quite noice. It leaves your face feeling squeaky clean.
We hear some products that leave skin feeling dry is bad for your skin because its striping away all the moisture in your skin, but I think it just really depends on your skin type. Everyone is completely different so this might work for some and an epic fail for others. As for me I like it!!! It works well with my skin and if helps me fight off pimples, black/white heads, and blemishes then I have no complaints!
This is the moisturizing gel-cream I got along with the cleanser. There are two moisturizing options: 1. The one that's a pump, that one is made for more oily/mixed skin type. 2. The one in the jar (which is what I have), that one is target towards more dry skin (which is what I also have ).
I'm not sure if you guys could see it but the cream is clear. It comes on without feel sticky, just clean and fresh.
Before I would break out on my nose, like I would get a pimple and when that one starts going away two more would show up. It's really frustrating especially if you haven't seen your skin free of pimplesarrggg!!!!!
Over-all I really like the product! I don't really like to buy alot of product and try different things on my face. I like the keep my face routine simple. Morning: Cleanse, moisturize. Night: Repeat. No special stuff I need to do once or twice a week on top of my routine. But who knows maybe I'll have change of heart in the future.
