Smoother, brighter skin with Dermagold

It’s been quite awhile since I’ve written. In between helping my girl prepare for her year-end exams and vetting testimonials, three out of four of us were actually down with HFMD, which eventually caused my girl to miss one of her Chinese papers. Same paper she missed last semester – which means she has no Chinese results for the entire year! Amazingly, she’s still recommended to do Higher Chinese again next year… haha..

Now that we’ve gotten all of that out of the way, here’s my late review of Dermagold’s award-winning Purifying Scrub. It works best with the Brightening Revitaliser (BR) so they kindly sent both over for review.

I love scrubs because they leave the skin feeling so smooth and soft, but unlike others, Dermagold’s Purifying Scrub actually has a lasting effect for me the next morning.

I think this might have to do with using the Brightening Revitaliser together with the scrub. So basically, cleanse and wash your face, then use the scrub. Before washing away the scrub, apply and massage in the BR, then wash your face.

A little of the Brightening Revitaliser goes a long way!

Here’s a video tutorial of the routine:

As with other products by Dermagold, such as Miracle C+ and Skin Elixir which I have previously reviewed, the products are all formulated for even the most sensitive skin so I have no qualms about trying these out.

How the products work

The scrub is mild and gentle, containing tiny particles of crystalline salts and grainy ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) found in natural plant oils such as seabuckthorn, jojoba oil and shea butter.

The plant oils enhance skin penetration – the oils are absorbed into the skin’s pores, dissolving the excessive sebum and loosening blackheads, resulting in deeper pore cleansing compared to other scrubs.

The Purifying Scrub activates in response to the BR. The fruit acids in the BR work with the plant oils in the scrub, dissolving the ‘bonds’ between the dead skin cells on your face to speed up skin renewal, leaving your skin looking clearer, smoother, and brighter. Use once or twice a week.

My thoughts

As mentioned earlier in the post, I find that my skin is still smooth and supple the next morning after using the purifying scrub and BR the night before. Make-up glides on more easily too. I feel that my skin feels smoother and even softer, but because I’m quite tanned, I don’t quite see myself looking fairer. 😀

I find myself looking forward to using the scrub each week, and I secretly wish it can be used more often; but I’m aware that I should not over-exfoliate, even if the product is awesome.

If you’re wondering what to get for yourself or someone close to you for Christmas, I highly recommend Dermagold’s Purifying Scrub and Brightening Revitaliser!

Getting a restful sleep while getting ready for our new home

These few weeks have been challenging for both my hubby and I. On top of the craziness at home where the kids took turns to fall sick over six weeks and me getting injured, we sold our current place and bought a new one!

Total madness, right? All in six weeks. Haha.

That means major decisions one after another, followed by loads of planning, scouting around for interior designers (we’ve decided on one!), googling for ideas, scouring Pinterest late into the night and basically just getting ready for our third home together.

Getting a new place is both exhilarating and stressful at the same time, and we haven’t really been able to get a restful sleep. That’s all part of the package of getting a new home, and after getting past the most stressful parts of selling and buying, and the stars aligning for us for that to take place smoothly together, now it’s the time to stress over the renovation plans.

Last week, in the midst of a combination of Taobao and Pinterest madness, European Bedding sent over their Heveya  100% Pure Organic Latex Pillows for us. I think it’s a sign for us to take a rest, y’think?

We didn’t think it would make a huge difference honestly. I mean a pillow’s a pillow, right? That’s before we used the pillows of course.

After the best sleep ever in weeks, we have to come to the conclusion that not all pillows are created equal.

In fact, in the course of almost 11 years of marriage, we’ve tried many types of pillows. From normal pillows, contour pillows, Korean pillows, buckwheat pillows, to latex pillows, you name it, we have probably tried it. My hubby had some chronic neck pain so we’ve seriously tried many types of pillows, and he has gone pillow-less, and also tried just sleeping with a towel rolled under his neck on top of our pillow adventures.

You can’t really blame us for being skeptical about pillows after all we’ve been through. Yet, to our surprise, the soft Hevaya latex pillow supported our heads so well, the effect the next day was just amazing. We slept through the night (such bliss), and woke up feeling refreshed after 7 hours of sleep.

Unlike the fluffy pillows that flatten over time and usage, the 100% organic latex pillow’s natural elasticity will continue to provide excellent support night after night.

The Heveya latex pillows have an open cell structure and are designed with ventilation holes. This ensures good ventilation and moisture regulation for a comfortable sleeping temperature.

What’s more, the natural organic latex pillows are the perfect solution for people prone to allergies as they are naturally anti-microbial and dust mite resistant. No chemicals added!

The Heveya latex pillow also comes with a soft and luxurious bamboo cover which is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It comes with a zipper for easy unzipping and cleaning experience for better hygiene. Bamboo is a natural eco-friendly fabric which keeps the head and neck dry and cool.

We are really pleased with our new pillows and I honestly never thought that pillows could make such a big difference to sleep quality. No neck pains, stiff necks. Just restful sleep, waking up feeling refreshed. Now that’s quality sleep.

Give it a try at European Bedding’s showroom at Eng Hoon Street. They carry latex mattresses as well if you’re looking for mattresses. For the month of September 2017, they are giving away 2 latex pillows with every mattress purchased.
