Dr. Ci:Labo Pore White Peel and Moisture-Collagen-Eye
Posted December 2, 2010on:
Again, I am sharing brief reviews of sample testing in this post. Since I used them for less than a week, please take the review for superficial reference only.
Dr. Ci:Labo Pore White Peel (SGD85/80ml)
According to Dr.Ci:labo website, Pore White Peel combines citric acids and lactic acids to remove excess build up of keratin on your skin epidermis. As you massage this gel onto your face it envelops your skin to lift off and remove keratin and dirt that does not come off with regular face washing. By removing layers of dead skin, you refresh your face and allow its normal cycle to continue unimpeded. Vitamin A and P for improving your skin’s tone, vitamin H for preventing roughness, together with VC-IP* (oil-soluble vitamin C derivative) improves your skin’s tone and to make your pores less noticeable in long term use.
The citrus scent is fairly strong like lemon flavoured floor cleanser but still tolerable. Apply to clean and dry skin in evening, avoid eye area. Take an appropriate amount and gently massage onto dry skin in circular motion until you see the white stuff peeling up. Rinse well with clean water then.
My skin did feel slippery smooth immediately after exfoliating, just temporary. Although this is hydrating and comfortable to use, but when I tried this in consecutive two days, my skin tends to be easily irritated, so I do believe it exfoliates. As per product instruction, it should be use 2~3 times a week. Since I only used it 3 times, I can not comment further of its effectiveness.

Dr. Ci Labo Moisture-Collagen-Eye (SGD75/15g)
This is creamy but non-heavy, and it takes a short while to absorb into skin, works well under makeup too. As I just tried it for a week, I would be able to comment about its moisturizing factor only. To summarize, if you are not fuzzy about fine line, this is sufficient; if you have very dry skin under eyes and intend to hide the fine line all the time, this is insufficient.
