Back to EHA

Hello! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ I thought of taking a break from my Montigo series to talk a little about beauty.

I’m sure you have seen me announcing on Instagram that I’ve gone back to EHA for monthly treatments again. It’s been 2 months now and I’ve been very happy with the results as always!

I also picked up some blemish gels which I thought deserve credit! (☆^ー^☆)

First up, Clindoxyl’s Once Daily Gel by Stiefel.

If you find Clindoxyl familiar, that’s because I’ve talked about it in my previous posts. I’m bringing it up again because this little gem is now bigger and costs only $2 more!  ︵ ǝʌol 

I don’t find the gel any more different, so am guessing Stiefel only did a repacking. Glad it works the same! As the saying goes, “Do not fix what’s not broken.” ( •ॢ◡-ॢ)-♡ A huge beauty pet peeve is seeing an absolute favourite item being discontinued or reinvented with new ingredients that aren’t suitable.

The Once Daily Gel is still as effective and its texture stays the same. It glides on the skin well, so it’s useful for affected areas.

The only thing I have to remember is to not over-apply or my skin will start peeling.

Next on the list is Galderma’s Epiduo gel.

Dr Tam recommended me this new kid on the block. In fact, it’s under his influence that I’ve become a fan of Galderma!

The substance is very similar to that of Clindoxyl’s. However, it comes in a much smaller tube and it doesn’t seem to work as quickly as Clindoxyl. The upside though, is that I never experience my skin peeling if I apply too much. A smaller tube also means I am more mindful with using it sparingly.

What I do not like about Epiduo is that it costs as much as Clindoxyl yet isn’t as effective. The size too is a huge discrepancy. Maybe I’m missing something here, but honestly, I expected more from Galderma.

Last but not least, EHA’s 24-hour sunscreen.

Unique because unlike conventional sunscreens, this doesn’t have an SPF label. Instead, it claims to give 24-hour protection. Interestingly enough, that is the norm for sunscreens in Australia!

Australia is known for having the most harmful UV rays because of the thinning ozone layer surrounding it. Therefore, 24-hour sunscreens are very popular in pharmacies. Very comforting to know since Singapore is not that far away from Australia… Plus the sun here is Hercules-strong! ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ

Gonna be sticking to these products for the long run. There are some I can live without or substitute, like the facial foam and toner, but I have yet to find a better pimple solution and sunscreen outside EHA.

Looking forward to my next appointment! Can’t wait to lie on the heated bed again! (๑॔˃̶ॢ◟◞ ˂̶ॢ๑॓)♡
