In microbiology, we were taught to switch our body care products (or at least, the formulations) every once in a while, to prevent bacterial resistance. I thought bacteria was he only enemy here, but my oh my, I was wrong.
I had just run out of my Etude House Baking Powder B.B Deep Pore Cleansing Foam when I decided to grab a bottle of Céleteque Hydration Facial Wash. It’s my third wash with the product just a fea minutes ago, and goodness, my skin has never looked so dry and blotchy! It looked worse than it did during my kojic acid days, and to think that it sayd hydration right on the bottle.
Yes, I have visible pores, it’s something I’m working on. What I’m trying to show is the redness here. I was in a bathroom with yellowish light, and no effects on the photo were made.
The blotchy redness was most noticeable on my cheeks. My nose exhibited a bit, but to a far less extent. It somehow irritated the angles of my lips, exhibiting something that looked a lot like angular cheilitis, but that was quickky remedied by lip balm.
This is me just whining, basically. After all, I was pissed!
Okay, this is just frustrating. I won’t throw the bottle away just yet, as this may just be my skin being shocked or something by the new wash. I was really expecting this to moisturize my skin, but it ended up drying it out and making it look blotchy and ugly. If things don’t improve in the next few days, I’m seriously going for Etude House Happy Tea Time.
I try not to be so optimistic, or to have expectations too high. It’s just that I wish products would actually deliver their claims. It’s only fair, isn’t it?
