DOES DERMAROLLING WORK? REVIEW ON DERMAROLLER BANISH ACNE SCARS KIT-XS PEN BANISHER &VITAMIN C ELIXER


Does dermaroller work? Horrifying dermaroller from Banish Acne Scars Kit-XS Pen Bainisher and vitamin C elixer for review today?

It is not news that I have acne prone skin and have been dealing with it all my life😭.  My blog is also partly one of the reason I started blogging besides practicing my English.  I know how it feels having low confidence and had tried so many acne methods including using gross stuff (don't want to think about it now)😡.

Although I don't have terrible acne scars now, I am still left with those dented scars (pits, box scars) which no topical products can help to get rid of.  I can't afford laser since I am just a poor working class person and definitely not famous enough to get free procedure treatments.

I told myself to just live with those dents until Daisy Jing from The Acne Channel offer to send me some products from the Banish line, I was so ecstatic about it😍.


I am really grateful for it is sent all over from US. Banish products are vegan and cruelty free. I am sorry it took me more than a year for this review since I really want to know how it works.

So, here is the Banish Kit that I have received.

The kits come with Banisher, natural Vitamin C serum&container to disinfect your Banisher in it.


The Banish Kit contains:
-Vitamin C Serum
-Banisher (mine is the XS stamp pen)
-cleaning container
-storage bag.
- You need is isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or boiling water to clean the Banisher

Banisher: an applicator used to apply Banish's natural Vitamin C serum

M Banisher -For people who want to brighten, improve texture of their skin&reduce the appearance of blemishes. Use once every 1-2 weeks. Once every 2 week recommended for most people. Can be used on face or body.

XS Pen Stamp-This is if you have active acne to spot treat any problem areas. Use around active pimples.
Use once every 2 weeks if you have sensitive skin, or once a week for best results. Best when combined with Vitamin C Serum.

Do not use Banisher over Active Acne.  Avoid sun exposure while using the Banisher.
Do not use when on Accutane. Consult with your dermatologist before use if you are using a prescription based acne cream or medication.


Banisher is actually a dermaroller.  It works by creating micro channels in your skin which causes skin to repair itself and build new collagen fibers and when combined with the serum; it helps reduce scarring, wrinkles, and depletion of collagen in skin. It can help fade acne scars without resorting to laser treatment. Even if you do not have acne scars, the micro channels also let your skincare products absorb much deeper into skin to increase their effectiveness.

Review:  The titanium needles are actually very fine, well made and it doesn't cause me any pain.  I do like that I can use Banish XS pen stamp around my acne scars and not on the acne itself.  This avoid puncturing the acne or cause inflammation.  The scars heals better and doesn't leave any dented scars when I use this XS stamp right after the pimples pop.  I think it is good to prevent those dented scars or keloid scars which normally happens after the pimples disappeared.  It is not for huge dented scars but works better for new scars and prevent additional acne scars.  It does help with my skin texture to be more smooth since it helps the skin to absorb serum after that.

Directions: Apply 2-4 drops daily and pat onto clean skin. Best when used after the Banisher. Store in a dark cool area. 

Shelf life: 6 months Volume: 15 ml

Ingredients: 
Glycerin, 99.9% Pure Grade L-Ascorbic (Vitamin C) acid, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Certified Organic Filet of Aloe Vera), hamamelis virginiana extract (made from Certified Organic Witch Hazel) Ferulic Acid, Tocopherol (Vitamin E),Rosa Centifolia (Rose) Flower Water, Rosehip Oil, Grapefruit Seed Extract, citric acid.



Review: The dark glass bottle helps prevent oxidation.  Banish Vitamin C Serum has slight texture of gel.  It has the smell of rose.  I am actually allergic to the combination of rose with witch hazel but since the formulation of the ingredients is not high, it just cause me little feeling of itch. I only use it sparingly and each time of 2 to 4 drops.  It doesn't seems to absorb because the weather here has humidity of 90%.  Banish Vitamin C serum helps my skin to be smoother, nicely hydrated. less red and generally better.  The effect doesn't come instantly but after a month of usage.  It doesn't prevent acne but it works for acne scars, the skin texture and the tone of the skin.  The vitamin C is stable since 2 months passed and the vitamin C is still clear in colour =).

**Make sure you use a sunscreen and put Vitamin C serum in the fridge to lengthen the shelf life.

Banish Acne Scars Kit



Overall, I would say this Banish Acne Scars Kit is not a miracle for those looking for a One Day Miracle or get rid of acne forever without looking into your lifestyle and food😍.  I do like it that it helps to prevent acne scars, reduce existing acne scars, reduce my redness, make my skin smoother and helps with healing.  Moreover, their products are vegans, cruelty free and organic which is I think what most people are looking into.
It is just that you do need to have a clear expectation on not relying just on topical products for acne solution.  You do need to use a few products such as cleanser, sunscreen and a moisturiser to get rid of acne, protect your skin and not to undo the goodness of this Banish Acne vitamin C serum.

The Starter Cleanser USD29
Vitamin C serum 15ml at USD 49
Pen Stamp USD49
Banish Kit USD75 (pen stamp+15ml vitamin C serum)

FOOD REVIEW ON JAPANESE NESTLE KIT KAT STRAWBERRY CHEESE CAKE FLAVOR (YOKOHAMA EDITION)

Hi food lovers,

If one go to Japan, 😊 one of the souvenir to bring home is all the unique Kit Kats.  There are many types of Kit Kat which include flavours such as mochi, soya sauce, sake, bake cheese, bake sweet potatoes, azuki beans and etc.

There are some flavours which is found only in certain prefectures which means it is really hard to find.  I was so excited when I got this Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) because it is food and chocolates.

Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) comes in a really pretty paper box.  Everything is written in Japanese.  There are 12 bite size bars inside the box.

The 12 bars are in plastic papers because it actually melted when I got it and luckily I could put it inside the fridge.  It also means that they use good chocolate since cheap chocolate don't melt with room temperature in my country (30 celcius) .  The size of bar is smaller than my Asian female palm so don't expect it to be large since I have small hands.  It just look huge on the photo.  There is the shape of the brand but it melted off so I don't know what on the chocolate bar.

Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) has the exterior of white chocolate. The interior wafer is the one made of strawberry flavour which is sweeter than the exterior white chocolate.  I think the combination really work out well since the sweetness is balance out since I don't really like anything too sweet but this is great.  Another thing, if you hate strawberry flavour then this is not for you.

There is also the QR behind the box which you can use to check out the other new flavours or for more information which is really great.

Overall, I do like Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) which is really a nice treat since it is something different than the Kit Kat we have here in Malaysia.  There is Sake flavour for those that love sake πŸ˜….




Product retails for
Nestle Kit Kat Strawbery Cheese Cake flavor (Yokohama edition) 850 yen

Hi,

Looking for a fermented Korean brand gel moisturiser for oily skin or for summer?

How about having a look at my review on this Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream?

Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream is not the food ice cream but the name just makes you think it is one right?  It is a gel moisturiser made for oily skin type or for the hot season when most moisturiser just feel too heavy on the skin. I have been loving their ALIVE:Lab Centella Dressing Powder which is a great skincare item.


A little about the company: Alive Lab was established to realize all of our dream - making clean, healthy and bright skin. We do our best to protect sensitive and pure skin using natural, but powerful ingredients.

It controls heat of skin thanks to its Canadian Glacail Milk.
You can use it with Centella and Lemon Powder.
It makes your skin moist and healthy as it is formulated with Galactomyces.

Usage suggestion:
After washing face, after toner and apply it gently according to the skin texture.

Active Ingredients:
Canadian glacial milk : skin cooling
Galactomyces ferment filtrate : skin nourishment

Ingredients:
Glacial water, Glycerin, Dipropylene glycol, Beta-Glucan, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Niacinamide, 1,2-Hexanediol, vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, Polyacrylate-13, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Squalane, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Arginine, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/ VP Copolymer, Allantoin, Xanthan Gum, Adenosine, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Hydrogenated lecithin, Octyldodecanol, Capryl glycol, Purified Water, Green Tea, Galactomise fermented filtrate, Perfume



Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream has really nice packaging. It also comes with a spatula to take the product out from the jar.  Inside the jar is a thin plastic lid which explains the reason that it can't hold the spatula.


The beneficial ingredients are:

Polyacrylate-13 with the ability to absorb as much as 200 to 300 times its mass in water so your skin gets all the hydration it needs.  Beta glucan is used for dermatitis, eczema, wrinkles, bedsores, wounds, burns, diabetic ulcers, and radiation burns.

Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (GFF) which is a popular fermented ingredient is used as a moisturizing agent in cosmetics. It is provides antioxidant effects in human skin cells.  

Allantoin skin-soothing and skin-conditioning agent

Squalane is a popular great ingredients that moisturise the skin but it isn't clogging/

Niacinamide is already a popular ingredients known for brightening and helping the skin with healing.

Hydrogenated lecithin is a skin restoring ingredient which helps to reduce flakes and restore suppleness.


Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream contains ferments such as beta glucan and Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate (GFF) so if you have fungal acne, it is not recommended.


Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream has the texture of a light gel which melts into watery liquid upon application on the skin and doesn't sting or irritate my skin. It leaves a slight glowing look if you pat it well into the skin.  Make sure to pat the cream well onto the skin unless you enjoy the 'wet' look on the skin.  The floral scent doesn't last that long on the skin since it disappeared once it dries up.  It does moisturise my skin and keep it hydrated without feeling greasy for more than eight hours.

As for the cooling feeling, it really depends on the temperature of your skin. I have tried it when my skin is flushing red so I can feel the slight cooling feeling for a few seconds.  There is no cooling feeling when my skin is on the normal temperature.

I think the huge jar can last me some time. I am just a bit lazy when it comes in jar since I have to decant it into another smaller jar for fear of contamination.

Overall, Alive:Lab Multi Ice Cream is a nice gel moisturiser that is able to seal in all the products onto your skin so it works really great as night cream for combination or oily skin type.  It is also a nice addition of fermented, moisturising and is water based moisturiser.  Just do not expect this to get rid of acne since there isn't any 'strong' acne buster ingredients in there.


Product retails for
Alivelab Multi Ice Cream moisturiser 100ml USD16
Made in Korea.

REVIEW ON RESTAURANT AH SO BAH KUT TEH, KLANG, SELANGOR (NON HALAL)

Hi,

Today is food adventure in Klang 😊 . This is a non Halal place meaning that it serves pork.  Bah Kut Teh is a Malaysian Chinese dish that is really popular and only available in Malaysia.  So, Klang which is a district in Selangor is the most popular place for Bah Kut Teh.

So, here is a restaurant that serves Bah Kut Teh but of course this place is not the popular one that appears in travel books and television.  It is just a restaurant that I happened to just stop because I was lost for breakfast before going somewhere.

Restaurant Ah So Bah Kut Teh, Klang, Selangor, Malaysia.

Chinese tea

Ah So Bah Kut Teh, Klang, Selangor, Malaysia has  a simple interior.  One can see the kitchen and all the others tables once you have seated there. The round tables are made for Chinese that tend to come with a big families.  You can either choose to have individual drinks or Chinese tea. I chose Chinese tea because you can refill the hot water later.  The tea 'Tie Guan Yin'(mandarin) is those really cheap loose tea which isn't that good.

Bah Kut Teh comes in either dry or wet one. I prefer soupy stuff.  Bah Kut Teh is actually pork cooked in Herbal soup.  Eating it is to give more vigor and provide more revitalizing effect to the body that needs a lot of energy to work. It used to be food for people working as labourers in the harbour since you need to carry all those heavy stuff and work really hard.

Now, we eat it as part of giving more nourishment to the body.  This Bah Kut Teh comes with pork, some tofu skin and salad.  One do need to mention the parts that you want or do not want. I obviously do not eat the small or big intestine so I usually mentioned that I do not want it else your Bah Kut Teh is going to come with it.  The soup is a little more watery and tone down with probably less herbs.  The pork isn't particular delicious, soft or seasoned.  It isn't tender but I think it could be better if given more cooking time.  The amount of the ingredients VS the price are just okay which is not cheap nor too expensive.

This restaurant serves their Bah Kut Teh with the Yau char kuey or You Tiao Char Koi. Char Koi is the flour stick which is like the Chinese Donut.  People from Hong Kong usually eat it with porridge.  In Malaysia, the Chinese like to eat it with the Bah Kut Teh.  It was okay. It is not particular soft or particular crunchy.

As for the rice, they use lower quality of rice since I don't think there is particular fragrant smell coming from it and the grains are not that pretty.  It would be better if one can provide better medium grade rice that could entice their patrons to eat more than a simple one just to fill in their stomach.

Customer service is okay since I could speak Chinese.  They are really fast at picking order but your orders come after 30 minutes of waiting which is kind of slow for me.

Overall, it is just an okay place to eat Bah Kut Teh. I am not hating or loving it.


The rice, chinese tea, Bah Kut Teh(for two person) and the char koi cost RM50.  I think the price must have surely increased now with things increasing already.
