Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for September 16th, 2011


This stuff is actually belonging to my SO but I also used it from time to time (“b). To my surprise, I found it quite pleasant to use. My tube of Kiehl’s Mirco-Dermabrasion is nearly finished, and I was thinking to buy a gentle & natural facial scrub next that can be used more frequently; in the mid of searching a natural facial scrub, I just feel free and open to any facial scrub that available to be grabbed in my bathroom.



It has fluffy texture and the scrub particles are very small and less abrasive, even my non-irritated sensitive skin can tolerate the scrub several times a week. In addition, it did not dry out my skin after wash. However, I do not notice any improvement to pores sizes.  



Most L’Oreal skin care has very strong fragrance but this one is mild and pleasant. Hmn… I did not get the chance to examine the full ingredient list when I got my SO to purchase this (he trusted my opinion in skincare) as THB210/100ml was the only amount that he was willing to pay for a facial scrub. The full ingredient list was fully covered by a security sticker and technically we cannot remove the product security sticker before we paid for it, hence no guilty I introduced him a facial scrub with SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate) ya? The truth is, there is no concrete evidence to date had proven SLES is harmful thus it is still widely acceptable by many cosmetics chemists, dermatologists and consumers. Anyhow, personally I will still give this product a miss if I know it contains SLES.

While I felt this is gentle for the sensitive skin, I was surprised to witness it has mild cleansing power in reality. From the above simple testing, the shimmering lipstick still largely remained after 15 seconds scrubbing with this L’Oreal Derma Genesis Pore Minimising Smoother. Yes, why do we need strong detergent for delicate skin? We are not crocodile. Glad to know some brands are working to improve their budget-line product and I know L’Oreal is not alone.
