I’ve finally stopped breaking out – right now I’ve pared down to the basics as the doctor has recommended – Cleanser, Retinoid Cream, Moisturizer and since this routine has worked for me for about a month plus (I’m just left with scars to  clear!), I reckon it’s a good time I look for products to introduce into my skincare regime! Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 1.18.26 pm Korean skincare has been quickly becoming the choice for many – I mean, which Korean star have you seen with bad skin?! Even the boys’ faces are immaculate. Just a few weeks ago I was at a party and this girl was telling me about how she loves Korean skincare and uses mainly Korean skincare! And yes, her face was flawless even without make up. Dr. Young Skincare is the product of a group of 5 doctors’ advice – a mix of dermatologists, plastic surgeons – made to fortify and protect your skin from external environment damages. Their skincare contains NO animal origins / mineral oil, LOW preservatives, chemicals surfactants, artificial colorants and are HIGH in organic ingredients, botanical oil and natural water! It was first developed in 2008, and has been in Singapore since 2011 – Dr. Young currently has 5 main product lines to suit everyone’s needs: Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 1.17.20 pm And here are the products I’ve picked to try out from their range!

{ AC OUT CLEANSING FOAM CREAM }

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA This fine foaming wash is formulated with Green & White Tea Extracts, and a mixture of 5 herb extracts such as:

  1. Glycyrrhiza Inflata Root Extract (aka Licorice, which whitens)
  2. Sophora Angustifolia Root Extract (reduces pigmentation activities)
  3. Artemisia Vulgaris Extract (anti-irritatant and anti-oxidant)
  4. Acorus Calamus Root Extract (anti-inflammatory)
  5. & Cnidium Officinale Root Extract (anti-inflammatory, skin regeneration)
Sealed for freshness!

Sealed for freshness!

The facial cream foams up pretty easily, and there wasn’t a discernable scent in this. It’s not overly drying but still gives you a clean feel – Or maybe I’ve been too used to my glycolic cleanser, it almost feels too clean for me. Nevertheless, looking at the ingredients it contains, it doesn’t look like a bad facial wash at all with all its anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant ingredients and may turn out to be good for you if you have occasional spots.

$31.90 SGD for 150ml | Tip: Rinse with lukewarm water and pat your face with cold water to give tension to your skin as a last step! 

{ DEEP CLEARING CLAY MASK }

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA This mask has to be my favorite product of all! Unlike other clay masks which tend to sting a little, this deep clearing mask is actually quite soothing and doesnt irritate my skin – plus it doesn’t have too strong of a fragrance or smell! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA When it comes to masks, I prefer using a brush for more even application as compared to fingers – it’s also less messy this way to me! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Let it sit for about 3-5 mins – allow the Ghassoul Clay (also known as Rhassoul, a clay mined from Morocco which softens skin, reduces sebum secretion and removes dead skin cells) and Dr. Young’s Phyto-Astringent (complex of Witch Hazel, Calendula and Ivy Extracts) to work their magic on your skin before washing it all off with lukewarm water before it dries up! My skin felt pretty nice and soft after using this and there was no irritation (redness, soreness etc) after washing it off – it’s a keeper! I love masking now since I’ve done vision correction surgery and can mask whenever~

$37.90 SGD for 65g | Tip: Apply Pore Tightening Serum on face after Clay Mask application to wholly remove pores and sebum.

{ BAMBOO BLOOMING BOOSTER }

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA An energizer serum that feels a lot like water, the Bamboo Blooming Booster is in the Special Care line and is oe of Dr. Young’s best selling products! It has anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant effects on the skin with ingredients like Prunus mume extract & Phytoncide, while Fermentation extracts (Fucogel 1000 & Koji Gastrodia Elata Blume Ferment) provides protection and hydration for the skin so that your next step of skincare will be absorbed easily. The Prunus Mume extract also aids cell renewal rates!

I use one full dropper for each application!

It doesn’t feel sticky at all – almost like water! I use one full dropper for each application.

$66.90 SGD for 50ml | Tip: Use Bamboo Blooming Booster in the morning and Pore Tightening Serum in the evening or vice versa to get better effect!

 

{ ANTI-PORE PORE ERASER BALM }

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA This tiny pot of pore eraser balm contains Swiss Alpine Herb & Witch Hazel Extracts, which controls sebum and tightens up pores – a little dollop (bean sized) is more than sufficient, and it keeps your skin soft, moist and matte all day long! I apply this to my nose and cheek area where my enlarged pores and oily parts of my face are to smoothen out the face and make sure that they stay matte longer, before I pat on powder. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA I don’t usually use powder foundation because of my open pores – powder only serves to accentuate these pores even more which isn’t a pleasing sight. Dr. Young’s Anti Pore Pore Eraser Balm covers up all these little holes and creates a perfect, smooth canvas for my powder foundation! dr-young-anti-pore-eraser-balm-before-after Tried it on my hand first – It even conceals a bit of redness, so if your skintone is largely okay and you wish to use less make up, just apply sunblock + the eraser balm and you’re good to go! Then I tried it on my face – without the balm + powder, and with the balm + powder – the results were immediately obvious – the balm smoothened out all the little indentations on my skin and made my face silky smooth to the touch! dr-young-ant-pore-eraser-balm-before-after-powder

$40.90 SGD for 15g | Tip: Use it alone as base, or as a primer under your regular foundation if you need more coverage!

{ AC OUT SPOT STOP SERUM}

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The AC Out Spot stOp Serum comes in a handy size for you to stow away in your bag for emergencies (sometimes I wake up to a zit but have to rush out… that’s when!) and it can even be applied over make up!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It comes in a clear form, and there is an instant cooling effect upon application. It also seems to leave a coating over it (it’s more of a feeling your skin gets than to the touch) as it claims and I like it pretty much! These days my pimples are making lesser appearances, and they also heal faster, but it feels quite shiok to use this on zits anyway ; p It also contains Salicylic acid which as we all know, is often used to treat acne.

$37.90 SGD for 15ml
