Mochi tells you that there are some ways of getting rid of your acnes/pimples:
1. Sing the acne-away song:

From the notes given to me by Mentholatum, acne and pimples are caused by excess sebum and personally I think dirt and germs plays a small role too.
Sebum (rhymes with Kibum) is the oily substance that is naturally discharged from the oil glands of the skin. So the more sebum you have, the higher the chances of you getting acne.
(But there is a good news: people with oily face are harder to get wrinkles. How cool is that huh? Oil can be washed away but wrinkles cannot, yeah? So what is with a bit of oil when you are wrinkle free?)
But the problem comes when you have so much OIL on your face that you look like you just buttered your face, or when you look like you just survived an oil spill……
|Sorry to the poor model for this…|
So today I am going to review 2 products that may help you with all your oil-spill and volcanic eruptions!!
- Acnes Creamy Wash
- Acnes Sealing Jell
Acnes Creamy Wash
As the name of the wash suggests, it is really creamy and smooth on application and the best thing is that it smells really really fantastic! There is this light, sweet smell that reminds me of some sweet that I cannot recall. To me, the smell of a product is the most important, because who wants to be putting nasty smelling or weird smelling things on your face?
After washing, skin feels very clean and freed from oil, though there is this very slight taut feeling which I personally don’t mind. In fact, I like my skin feeling taut after washes because it makes my skin feel clean! Weird huh? That sort of explain why I don’t really like gel face washes that makes my skin feel slippery after washes because I cannot tell whether that slippery feeling is unwashed soap suds OR it is meant to be like that. This creamy wash suits my taste completely.
Anyway, the creamy wash is supposed to do the following:
One of the above stated functions that it performs very well is to help sooth redness and skin irritation caused my acne. On my first day of using, this red bumpy patch on my cheekbone felt good, like not dehydrated but soft and comfortable. I also think that it helps to prevent the aggravation of pimples well because the few pimples that were about to swell on my face did not swell up, and in fact, the “heads” of the pimple fell off on the fourth day after using WITHOUT actually erupting. How cool is that huh?
So here is a summary of how this creamy wash is like:
Smell: Mild sweet scent that is pleasant and not too strong. (it makes me drool, I don’t know why)
Texture: Smooth, slightly thick and sticky consistency that is pleasant to touch.
After-wash: Clean, non-oily, pores feel breathable, a slightly taut feeling that is not uncomfortable.
Acne-cure: Prevented aggravation of developing pimples, causing the “head” to fall off quickly.
