Uriage Depiderm Depigmenting Skincare

My previous post reflects of my frustration on a particular de-pigmenting product which sadly did not work well on me...which is why I'm blogging on another depigmenting product just to make myself feel better ahahaha....

Introducing my favourite post-acne dark spot treatment product:-


Description of the product:-


Intensive Care depigmentation. Anti-brown spots. Face, Hands, Cleavage.
Depiderm, intensive treatment helps to eliminate brown spots associated with disorders of pigmentation and prevents their appearance through the synergy of its assets.

Active anti-radical and soothing properties associated with the Uriage Thermal Water complement its actions in fighting against the mediators stimulating melanogenesis. Finally, the AHA and BHA promote exfoliation of celliules l├ępiderme of the most pigmented.


 Well to translate in simple terms, what Depiderm does is combat pigmentation and dark spots on the face and body. With AHA and BHA present, these are the main chemicals that help to exfoliate the skin, thus gently helping to reduce dark spots.

FINDINGS?

Been using this for 2 years....and it definitely helps....although don't expect it to work on a speed of light la..obviously....but the moment you put it on, skin feels immediately soft....

A word of caution
It says on the packaging: Do not apply on "Broke Skin". Meaning: Do Not Apply On Acne That You Just Picked...It stings quite a bit and may result the blemish to be worst...let the post acne mark dry first and heal before you apply. This is not an acne cream/treatment like Oxy, but more to treating the POST-BLEMISH spots left behind...Just be careful when you handle products with AHA and BHA...

By the way, there is another Depiderm Cream with UV protection, so perhaps if you'd like to try, this could be another version that might tickle your fancy~



Note: Sadly, only available at Guardian KLCC and Ampang Park. Susahnya.....Thank goodness I work in the vincinity....

Updated: Nano White Intensive De-Pigmentor

Updates: After 3 days...haven't seen any improvements to the scabs on my cheeks....The scabs do dry up...but that's just what they do....I was wishing for more dramatic improvement...I guess it was a letdown...sigh......

Spots, spots and more spots! - Nano white intensive depigmentor

Indefinitely how many times you keep on telling yourself to NOT PICK your zits, tangan yang menggatal itu tetap menggatal juga, no matter what. So yesterday, i successfully managed to transform 3 small whiteheads into 3 scabs on my left cheek. Argggggghhhhh!!!! Thank god wedding's over!

Anyway, I find myself yet again surfing through strawberrynet.com through a spot cream. However, bear in mind, going through researches made me realize that not all spot creams work for pigmentation, dark spots and acne marks all at the same time. I suppose that's why they're called 'targeted treatments?' ponder ponder....

Coming back to my findings....wow, mahal sungguh all these spot creams! Can range up to 200 bucks for a small tube! Whoa... Could get a pretty decent moisturizer for that price!

I used to depend on Uriage's Depiderm De-pigmenting cream to combat those scabs, but recently, Guardian Klcc is the only place yg I boleh cari this cream....and yet Guardian pulak ugh under construction... Lagilah frust...

So yesterday, I find myself tagging along my seniors to Ampang Park, since they wanted to scout for Baju raya, I masuk Guardian(u can see now that Guardian is one of my favorite lepak places....then I saw this.....


And I bought it!

Ahhahahah...so random kan? But it did say it was mainly targeted to treat acne marks... So with a reasonable price of RM40++, I grabbed it.

After 2 days of using it, my scabs are drying pretty fast. But it does stung a little bit....

Wait for the results ya? And PICTURES!!! Jeng jeng jeng.....
