Photoshop my imperfections, please!

After experimenting with a few skincare products for blemished skin, i think i finally found the one truly MATTE day moisturizer in Eucerin's newly renamed range for acne-prone skin, ie. EUCERIN DERMO PURIFYER Cream Gel! Trust me, i have tried VICHY's NORMADERM Hydracare (day moisturizer), it's actually my favourite still coz it has a very fresh smell, spreads on very nicely, absorbs fast too....just that it's not as matte as Eucerin's, that's all. Plus, there's another downside to it, make it's 2.5x more expensive than Eucerin's, and at the moment, it's sold out in all the Guardian's here in Kuching!

The even more fabulous thing about this Eucerin DermoPURIFYER Cream Gel (RM48.90 before 10% discount @Guardian's now) is that even after i sweated so terribly, my cheeks stay matte! No kidding! This is a first, i tell least for me!

Pssstt!!! The thing i wished Eucerin would have done differently was to have their products PARABENS-FREE :( But at the moment i think i'd need to own a normal skin before worrying about those BENs :P, well, till somebody comes up with a range of skincare like this range minus the parabens!

You see, me and Sis#2 (aka have this shiny skin with pore issue, and we truly hate moisturizers that make our face look like we covered it with clingwrap!!! So right now, i am just too happy to have found a day moisturizer that stays matte and i think it's really helping with my currently crazy blemished skin too!

And becoz this is Eucerin's newly renamed range (this range was named differently previously), they are now having a promotion, where you can buy this DermoPURIFYER Cover Stick (for pimples obviously) at 50% with any purchase of the DermoPURIFYER range. Original price for this stick is RM48.90 as well, pretty pricey for something lidat i must admit, but well, i got 1 to try since i can buy it at half price!

Just yesterday as I was doing my morning routine of washing, toning, moisturizing with the cream gel, i then used this Cover Stick on my's actually kinda fun...LOL! Sure it doesn't match my skintone to the T, but at least it's NOT PIMPLES that I am seeing in the mirror, u get what i mean??? So, the more i 'color', the more i imagined how great it would be for all women to have a magic 'photoshopy' stick (or WAND), then i could just color color color, or should i say cover cover cover my dark circles, the fine lines under my eyes......u get the flow.... :P Thankfully, before i used that cover stick to colour my entire face, i starting laughing at myself in my head.....imagining my sis' reaction when she reads this.....!!! Coz i am pretty darn sure she would definitely 'understand' the temptation that i had! haha...

Oh btw, i just got the cleanser and toner from this DermoPURIFYER range too! Both are priced at RM34.90 each. I really gotta try it u skin has been behaving crazily the past few mths, breaking out in whiteheads and pimples.....but it's improving.....PHEW!!!

(And, to know how positive i am about this? I was actually asking myself, what happens after my skin is OK again??? Do i continue to use this range? or what?...hmmm....i think i still have plenty of time to consider that WHEN my skin really turns back normal, rite?!)

***Added on 11th September 2009:
I personally feel that the Cover Stick is not effective enough....pimples (mine) do not dry out even after 2 days' applications, I guess the active ingredients are not substantial to dry pimples out?
(Just thought I'd share this update in case anybody's searching hi n low for a cover stick that won't waste their $$$)
