It’s been a while, hasn’t it, since it happened?
Even so, I still get emails and messages asking about my skincare regime, almost every day. I took this long to share my skincare regime with you guys because I wanted to make sure these products really were effective in the long run. I was worried that my skin would get sick of these products, you know, like how skincare products used to cease effectiveness on my skin after a while.
Let me highlight first hand that this is not a paid advertorial, I paid for all of Dr Joyce Lim’s products with my own money. The stupid facial salon refused to compensate me a single cent for all that I’ve had to fork out to get my skin to what it is today (I tell you, they are so ngeow they refused to reimburse my taxi fare).
I cannot believe it has been 10 (WHAT!) months since that infamous facial episode. All these products prescribed by my dermatologist have worked wonders for my skin, as you can probably tell from pictures posted on my Instagram (@bunbunmakeuptips).
This picture was taken in August 2013, about 3 months post-Ms Barnacles. I can’t believe my skin managed to bounce back – correction: improved so much and be better than before – in such a short period. I think I looked pretty damn good! HAHAHA!!!! XD I swear the only editing done to this photo was resizing and adding of my watermark.
Don’t be fooled by my makeup (I’ll share with you my favorite face makeup in a while! :)) and flattering, natural lighting in this photo which make me appear like I have flawless skin. I DON’T. Sometimes my skin has a mind of its own and creates an artwork of dubious-looking spots on its canvas.
But sometimes is better than all the time and having spots is better than having pus! Be grateful in every small way and you’ll live happier!
So I’m grateful that even though the irresponsible salon left me to die, I found a very good dermatologist who not only cured me, she made my skin better than before.
It has come to my attention that some unethical beauty brands (why so many out there, seriously!) have used my face, without permission, to promote their products, claiming that their products are the reason for my recovery. PFFFT! Some even go to the extent of showing a side-by-side comparison of before and after photos.
Before using their products = my face AFTER the terrible facial
After using their products = my face BEFORE the terrible facial
So please be VERY careful if you see my face being used to endorse products. Unless I have personally mentioned it on my blog and social media channels, I AM NOT ASSOCIATED TO THAT BRAND. Thank you to those who have alerted me, I tried to ask those brands to take the pictures down but unethical people will do anything to cheat your money.
To finally answer your questions, here is my skincare regime. I tried my best to look up on the proper medical terms, so don’t be so hard on me if I say something wrong k!
