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.

About:

-Reduce the appearance of age spots
-Reduce Appearance of Wrinkles

-Firms and brightens the appearance of skin

This serum is:
-Vegan
-Paraben Free
-Natural
-No Preservatives

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.


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

REVIEW ON ALIVE:LAB MULTI ICE CREAM

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.

ALIVE:LAB Multi ICE Cream

Description:
Cool down the skin heated by troubles and UV rays.  Heat from skin troubles may cool down thanks to this Cream!
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 HELLO SKIN JUMISO WATER SPLASH MASK SHEET

Hi,

Sheet masks has become popular with famous celebrities and beauty influencers attested to using one sheet mask per day for the fast immediate hydration of the skin and also sheet masks have appeared as the essential items to use before makeup even on runaway.

Recently Korean brand,  Hello Skin Jumiso has become popular in Instagram for the very cute and pretty packaging.  So here is a review on this Hello Skin Jumiso Water Splash Mask sheet.

Hello Skin Jumiso Water Splash Mask sheet has a cute packaging and a box consist of 5 sheet masks. It has a golden seal at the top of the box.  There are five variants to the mask and the one I got is the one for hydration which is great for dry skin type and for over exfoliated skin.

Their sheet made are cupra sheet made from 100% cotton and is the thinnest sheet mask at the moment. It really felt soft like silk.  There is a mesh sheet with handle to avoid the sheet mask get torn off.

Ingredients wise, the first ingredient is water, followed by glycerin.  There is beta glucan, some plant extracts (xylitol,laminaria japonica etc) , marine ingredients such as algae and spirulina, vitamin E, allatioin, arginie. castor oil, ceramide, shea butter and few hyaluronic acids.  Brightening and healing ingredients such as vitamin C and niacinamide, Most of the ingredients are gearing towards hydration and moisturising for drier skin type.

Hello Skin Jumiso Water Splash Mask sheet does have scent that is typical of men's products. I don't mind the scent since I do use products marketing for male.  The scent does persist until the sheet mask dries off.  I am not sure about what others think but I don't think the scent is strong at all but if you are the one that prefer floral, fruity kind of smell marketed for women then this might not be the scent you are looking for.

I find that the fit of the mask is great because I have something that finally covers my jaw line.  The sheet mask adhere to my skin even being that thin and the essence is actually slightly gelish milky which is interesting.  It doesn't drip down to my neck even when the sheet mask is thin showing the ability to hold essence.  There is extra essence which I use to apply on my leg. Honestly, one need to use more than just one sheet mask to see the obvious effect on the skin.  I use three of the sheet masks from the box to confirm my views on it.  I really find that it helps my skin to hydrate and heal my skin when it is irritated without clogging my pores.  Not sure about brightening since most sheet mask brighten my skin slightly.

Overall, Hello Skin Jumiso Water Splash Mask is affordable, nice interesting ingredients, comes with a really cute beautiful packaging, keep my skin hydrated, heal it and if you don't mind the scent. Hopefully Hello Skin Jumiso will do something to the fragrance because most people dislike such scent,

So rice is even part of beauty regime since ancient time and it was especially popular for washing the face with rice water from the third wash.  Sorry, I don't do that because I am just too lazy😔

COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask Is a really popular sleeping mask because it contains 65% of Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract and because of its affordability.  The ingredients are basically moisturising but it does have Cetearyl Alcohol, silicone, palm oil and olive oil that can be too heavy for some people😶. (combination or oily skin type)

It doesn't have any strong smell which is good. It does smells like rice water if you get what I mean. COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask is smooth and feels really light which is nice. Unfortunately, it clogged my pores like it did with my forehead(I rarely breakouts on my forehead). I had tried it more than 5months so I am pretty sure it is this one.

I find that it is excellent to help dry patches around my mouth and on my body.  However, it just doesn't play well if I applied in the morning or on a hot humid day😡. It caused my face to be oily and also clogged.   It is great to seal in all the skincare products that I use😍 provided that I use it during cold days(27 celcius is consider cold here😆) and apply very little.  For dry mature skin without sensitivity to oil palm or clogging problem, COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask will works better😍.

Remember to keep inside the fridge because in a humid place like South East Asia as the oil can separate and it will spoil really fast because the plastic jar is exposed to the air.  Cosrx had the tube for Christmas.  I don't know if they are thinking of making the tube for long term as I don't get reply from them.  I heard having COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask in tube will avoid spoiling from happening.

Overall, COSRX Ultimate Nourishing Rice Overnight Spa Mask is a great sleeping mask or moisturiser for dry skin type, during winter and if you don't get irritated to any of the ingredients(specially the palm oil or the olive oil in it).
