IVC Testing Room: New Skin & Hair Care Products

Many have asked me to do a skin care routine, but that's hard for me to do, because I hardly stick to a specific routine. For months, I was using only La Roche Posay Effaclar, but I'm a commitment-phobe when it comes to cosmetics (sometimes relationships, too). Nowadays I'm googling skin and hair care products more than makeup. I want to discover new products and sample everything that's raved-about by at least 5 beauty bloggers. So every now & then I will do little posts to let you know what I'm using.

Vichy Normaderm Anti-Aging Anti-imperfection & Anti-wrinkle Resurfacing Care with Glycolic acid + LHA + Vitamin C ~ It claims to target pimples and wrinkles at the same time. Let's see *fingers crossed*

Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution ~ Makeup remover for sensitive skin. It looks like water. Very excited to try this much-raved about product. I got the smallest bottle first to try, it's also available in bigger bottles.

Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Energising Daily Face Wash with Vitamin C & Ginseng ~ It's nice and gentle. Doesn't lather much.

VO5 Give Me Texture Tousled Style Spray ~ Spray on onto dry hair and lift, scrunch and twist. It does turn hair into a wavy beach style, but I don't like that it makes my hair feel crunchy. I've given it to the man.

Herbal Essences Bee Strong Strengthening Cream with Honey & Apricot Essences (For Damaged Hair) ~ I've used it only a couple times so far. It is like a moisturizer for my very dry hair tips... but I'm not sure if it's great.

TRESemmé Split Remedy Split Mend Intense Recovery Masque ~ Whenever I use this, the ends of my become more frizzy and a nightmare to comb through.

*I ordered Vichy & Bioderma products online from Escentuals.com, so I got that nail filer free.

If you want me to bring any particular skin & hair product into the  Testing Room , let me know. This is THE YEAR OF SKIN & HAIR! Hola!

  2. Hi Cynthia,
    I have oily combination skin and would love to know about a good product that refines large pores. I had tried Estee Lauder Idealist and loved it but its astronomical price is a big turnoff. Can you suggest something affordable?
    BTW have you tried out Yves Rocher Skin Care products? They have some amazing masks, serums and moisturizers.

    1. I have not tried any of their skin care products, but I was very intrigued once. Might give them a try now :)

      Vichy Normaderm has a Pore Refiner, but I don't know how it is. La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo also minimizes pores.

  6. Split Remedy did the same thing to my hair too. I took it with me on a holiday and applied it in the place unfortunately and had to wash hair asap on landing lol. It's weird that it completely defies the purpose of taming split ends?!

    1. It did?! Here I thought I'm too quick to criticize Shifs...you've cleared all doubt :D I was shocked too, since it's for split ends!

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
