Clarins Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate - Power Duo In a Bottle

Some items are a keeper.

Some items goes into the waste bin.

And some? They don't really fit in any of the categories.

Means: great addition, great to have... but unnecessary.

So you decide where this goes in your skin care regime ya?

The story of how this serum came into possession was not a pleasant one. On a fine day, mum came to visit me near my office for a friday outing. And during the lunch, she asked me on what sorta moisturiser and cream that she needed to buy since the current one that she's using isn't helping much.

"Jom jom kita pi Clarins tengok"

So we went to the Clarins boutique @ XXX mall, where we were greeted by the Skin Consultants.

Honestly, I didn't really like the SA's there: super pushy, kiasu, and looked at you in some manner as if "you can't afford this... and you have zero knowldege on skin care"

My eyes gazed upon the serum; latest addition in the anti-aging family. When I reached for the sample and wanted to try and squeeze the contents onto my palm, the SA quickly grabbed the bottle from my hand. "errr...let me demonstrate how to use it."

Sheesh.. forgive me, but I believe that's pretty rude to be grabbing something from a customer's hand, isn't it?" Further more, its not as if I'm shaking the bottle to death!

Anyway, here's how it looks:

When you pump out the content, both serums with be dispensed. Mix and warm both your palms and spread it all over your face and massage thoroughly.

Ok.. feels good.

But... I hate the SA, seriously. She was pushing mum to pick up the anti - aging moisturiser priced at RM400!!! and even though mum didn't want to get it.. they still immediately placed the moisturiser on the counter. And I told mum "tak payah la amik moisturiser tu... main letak je.. even though ckp xnak"..

But mum being nice, picked it up anyway...

Grr... marahnya...

updates on the results? saya sebulan lagi....

A little supplement won't hurt.... or will it??? - BEUTSKIN ESSENCE: RAHSIA KECANTIKAN ADIRA

I must admit that sometimes, I get swayed by effective MLM marketing gimmicks. Why? cuz they are always so tempting.


In a conversation with my office collegues, I learnt about this product. Yes... the infamous BEUTSKIN ESSENCE... the crowning jewel that had received rave reviews by many people... who claimed that the miracle in the capsule has truly helped them in giving them the perfect skin that they dreamed of.

The product claims to:
- Makes ur super fair
- Improves blood circulation
- Improves skin's glow and reduce acne scars

The product ambassador was actually ADIRA.. who pretty much started the whole whitening rave:-

Ntah betul ntah tak that she's actually using Beutskin 100% (what i mean is X CUCUK vit c, glutathione and all those crap....I wonder)

Anyway, other celebrities who actually swear on the effectiveness of the product as the likes of Lisa Surihani and Scha AL-Yahya.

Still not impressed?

Anyway... Don't laugh at me...but I did fall for the marketing gimmick (cuz I needed to correct a few scars on my cheeks.

The results? After a few months of consumption:


Infact, gave me bumps on my cheeks... of which pretty much looked like a really bad case of rashes.

Now back to normal, safe, sensitive skin care.

Sedeh yang teramat....
