Hey everyone! I am back with another one of my informative product review blog posts just to keep you guys updated with the products that I am currently using as of the moment. If you have been a follower of my blog up to this very moment, you would know that I have posted a skin care routine way back in December of 2013. Well, inevitably as time goes by, we have to somehow upgrade and use a different product or variations of that same brand of product. So as for this blog, I am going to share with you a quick review on Eskinol’s Pimple Fighting Facial Deep Cleanser with Dermaclear Formula. So let’s start, shall we? 🙂

Based on my previous blog, I have shared with you about the other type of Eskinol Product that I was using. It was the Eskinol Classic White Facial Deep Cleanser that I love to death now after using it for 2-3 months already. I mean, that product literally removes all the dirt in your face. Its that good, I swear. That’s why I had to repurchase and repurchase until I landed on this other version which includes that Pimple Fighting action I was looking for. As you know, I have been battling out with acne for the longest time ever since I went on a weight loss program. I will not go into detail with that anymore and just link my Updated Skin Care Routine blog down below in order for you to have an idea what I am talking about. 🙂


Going back, I will now list down the unthinkable benefits that this product has as claimed by the company:

  • Removes deep seated dirt, excess oil and makeup with Micro-cleanse Anti-bacterial Formula
  • Dries up pimples in as early as 3 days* with Dermeaclear Formula which contains Salicylic Acid and Tea Tree Extracts
  • With Vitamin B3 to lighten Pimple Marks. *Based On Clinical Tests

Given all that is listed above, I will now give you a little background on what Salicylic Acid, Tea Tree Extract and Vitamin B3 is all about.

Salicylic Acid

According to Helen Allen (2012), “Salicylic acid is used for a number of different skin conditions caused by thickened, hard skin, such as warts, psoriasis, scaly skin conditions, and some nail infections. It is a keratolytic, which means that it works by softening the outer layer of your skin allowing it to loosen and shed”.

Furthermore she stated that, “Salicylic acid is applied directly to the area of skin affected. There are a number of different formulations and strengths of salicylic acid available which can be purchased at pharmacies, or may be prescribed for you by your doctor. Which preparation is suitable for you will depend upon the type of skin condition you have, and the area of your body which is affected.”

For more details, please check out her post by clicking the link below:

Tea Tree Extract

According to Cathy Wong (2013), “Tea tree oil is an essential oil obtained by steam distillation of the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, a plant native to Australia.” Furthermore, Wong (2013) stated that, Tea tree oil contains a constituent called terpinen-4-ol that is thought to be responsible for most of tea tree oil’s antimicrobial activity. Because tea tree oil can kill bacteria, applying topical tea tree oil to acne lesions has been thought to destroyPropionibacterium acnes, the skin-dwelling bacteria that is involved in the development of acne”.

For more details, please check out her post by clicking the link below:

Vitamin B3

According to Asian Spa Product (n.d.),”Commonly known as Vitamin B3, Niacinamide at 2% has been shown to reduce water loss in the skin and retain fatty acid levels (younger, plumper, firmer skin). It has also been proven at high concentrations (between 3-4%) to be a very effective acne reducer. Vitamin B3 is also an excellent skin lightening agent that works by disrupting the transfer of melanosome from the melanocyte to the keratinocyte.”

So now that you have a background on what this product contains, I think this product probably is a must have in your beauty essentials kit. Why so? its because the 75ml bottle that I have on hand is relatively below Php 40 at any Mercury Drugstore making it relatively cheap as compared to other facial cleansers. However, the benefits are as awesome as a branded one, based on what is listed above. I mean, personally after using the product after washing my face, I see how all of the dirt comes off so well with just one cotton ball. Conversely, I have also mentioned in the previous blog that I  I do wash my face again after letting it sit for 10 mins because I want to have a cleaner face before applying any other product. Nonetheless, I saw that after like a week of using this product, my acne marks were really lightening up and I don’t have that much pimples anymore. That’s why I really love it. Hands down, its amazing. (NOT A SPONSORED OPINION, OKAY?) 🙂

So I hope that you find this blog post as informative as possible. If you have anymore questions or what not, feel free to comment down below. I will again accept them once I log into my blog and respond to them as well (of course). So there, if you find that this product simply does not work for you or it has done some adverse effects on your skin, you can opt not to purchase it. I am just sharing this because it has helped me a lot with my skin condition. It is really all up to you to find out what product works well for your skin type. 🙂 Well, good luck with that and I hope to make another blog post as soon as possible! Take care and God bless you always! 🙂

Hey everyone! I am back with another quick blog post for all of you and its my 2013 updated skin care routine. You know I have battled with acne problems ever since I started my diet. I actually had a lot of pimples when I started shifting to a new and better lifestyle, and that would be none other than fitness. I know its a bit odd for some to see that one gets acne when he or she switches to a new lifestyle, but this does happen. Why? Well, in my case, its because my food intake was totally different from what I used to eat when I started dieting down to how I look like now. I won’t really go into details with my fitness story because I plan to post a different blog post on that.

As for this blog, I really plan on making a review on the products listed below so that you’ll have an insight as to when I use them, how the consistency of these products feel on your skin and stuff like that. So let’s start? 🙂


  • Garnier Pure Active Multi-Action Scrub


The Garnier Multi-Action Scrub, as claimed by the company aims to fight the 6 signs of acne as read in the product label and description at the back. It has that Anti-Imperfections Relapse formula that was tested on Acne-Prone Skin. This Anti-Imperfection Relapse technology targets white heads and pimples in a span of one week, as clinically tested on 50 subjects in 5 weeks. Perhaps, this is what makes this product worth your money. The current price of this product at Savemore is about Php 91 since it increased due to inflation, economically speaking.

I don’t know if you you can see it in the picture above, but this product has blue micro beads in it that I am guessing will be the Anti-Imperfection Relapse technology. When this product is applied on the skin, you can instantly feel the micro beads rubbing through your skin as the product is lathered. It lathers on instantly, even on a pea-sized amount. In my experience of using this product, I can instantly see changes in a span of one week because my pimples have slowly been disappearing. I can’t say its all because of this product alone, but when you use it on a daily basis, especially after a workout or a long day, its really helpful. Why so? Its because it cleanses your face deeply, thus removing all the dirt from the outside world. I know the way I have described it sounds kind of shallow, but that’s really my take on the product. So there, I guess you just have to try it yourself so you can have a feel of how it works. And if it doesn’t work for you, you could always use a different one or consult your dermatologist as to why your skin responds that way. I won’t claim that this product works for all the people who have acne prone skin because we all have different skin types, but if asked if I would recommend it, I guess its really up to you as to whether you’ll take the risk or not. You’ll never know until you try.

  • Eskinol Classic White Facial Deep Cleanser


As weird as this sounds, my boyfriend actually recommended me this product. However, he actually used it with Dalacin-C, an anti-biotic capsule consisting of Clindamycin which is made to treat serious internal bacterial infections. In my case, I didn’t anymore place the Dalacin-C Capsule inside because I don’t want to risk my face to anymore infections. Why? Its because some capsules are not to be placed directly on the skin even though they are for the same purpose. The consistency in some creams with the same drug would not be the same with mixing that particular drug on a different kind of chemical. This may generate a great effect on some skin types, but not all. The probability that this can damage another one’s skin is relatively high, so I don’t really suggest that you take the risk. Unless of course, you’re a risk seeker, so you’ll probably end up trying. However, if you’re a risk averse (people that want to be sure in their actions), I don’t think this is advisable at all. Some drugs are placed inside a capsule for a reason, and so you really have to talk to a pharmacist or a doctor before you put this on your skin. Well, that’s just my say on that, but if you have used this with Dalacin-C, then more power to you because it helped a lot with your acne condition.

The following are the benefits of the product, as claimed by the company:

  • Removes deep seated dirt, excess oil and makeup with Micro-Cleanse Anti-bacterial Formula
  • Whitens with continued use
  • Controls oil for hours (Removes excess oil, based on clinical test)

Moving on, the consistency of this product is like any other facial cleanser. It has that kind of cooling effect that soothes your skin. I personally use this product when after I wash my face because it helps remove the excess makeup I am wearing, and it soothes my skin after a long and hard day. However, I do wash my face again after letting it sit for 10 mins because I want to have a cleaner face before I apply the next product listed down below. I find that it helps clean my face some more, and prepares it for the last product I am using. The price of this facial cleanser is about Php 50 at Mercury Drugstore. Its relatively cheap for a facial cleanser, but it does perform well. Again, I don’t really suggest that after you read this blog, you go ahead and buy all the products listed down below because we again, all have different skin types and texture. That’s why its best to find a product that soothes your skin right. Nonetheless, if you want to take the risk, then go ahead. If it doesn’t work for you, you always have the option to try another product. Its really all up to you. 

  • Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream

Garnier Multi-Action Scrub

The last and final product I am using would be the Garnier Light Complete Multi-Action Whitening Cream which costs roughly around Php 28 at SM Hypermarket. I have to check back with you again about the price because I haven’t checked it again this time.

This product actually has a lot of benefits as claimed by the company, as  listed on its packaging, and it reads as such:

  • Extra UV Protection
  • Measurable Fairness
  • Fades Darks Spots
  • Smoothens Skin
  • Evens Skin Tone
  • Glowing Skin
  • SPF 17 (Anti-UVB)
  • PA++ ( Anti-UVA)
  • Three Potent Ingredients:
  1. Snowpine White Source – 10 X more efficient than Vitamin-C to help remove dullness and fade out dark spots.
  2. Micro-smoothing Agent – with gentle exfoliating action to smoothen skin texture. The formula helps minimize pores
  3. Pure Lemmon Essene – with ultimate anti-oxidant efficacy to boost healthy glow. With SPF 17/PA++ to protect your skin from UVA and UVB

With all that listed above, I was pretty much convinced by the power of this product because it really helped with my acne condition. I actually use this product before going to bed and before I put on my makeup. Why? I put this on before I sleep because I find that it helps fade away my acne scars over time. As for the makeup part, I find that it helps blend my foundation in easily and that it serves as my moisturizer and sunscreen. So for a pretty cheap prized product, I am pretty much sold by its benefits as listed above. Again, I don’t recommend that you do what I do in terms of skin care routine and the like, but what I do recommend is that if you have the courage to try it, then do so. I would always remind you that there is no harm in trying, but its always best to consult your dermatologist or see to it that your skin is capable enough of handling the chemical content of each product as listed above.

Well, that’s all for now. I hope you liked this blog post. I am sorry for making it super long. I really had a lot to say about the products. I’m sorry for that. Anyway, if these products did work for you, then more power to you. If not, then it’s alright. There is no harm done in trying. Besides, there are a million other products out there that would be good for your skin. So that’s it. Thank you  for reading and to God be all the glory. Advanced Happy and Merry Christmas to all of you! ❤
