Did you know that sebum build-up in your skin can cause your skin to become more alkaline and lead to skin problems in the long run?
Not only so, it is also a key cause of acne and spots on the skin as the sebum can aggregate with the dirt on your skin to clog your pores, causing inflammation.
If you suffer from relatively oily skin like I do, why not consider Curel’s new Sebum care series?
|Curel Sebum Care Series – Face wash, lotion and moisture gel|
What we probably did not know is that oily skin and sensitive skin often comes together, and not exclusively. This makes me realize why in the past when I used certain face washes, they may feel quite rough on the skin and causes the skin to feel tender and dry out.
This is Curel’s foaming face wash!
|Curel Sebum Care Foaming wash|
One of the best thing about foaming face washing is of course the fact that foam is lighter and it is also more airy, thus easier for the foam molecules to gently remove the sebum build-up from your skin without being too harsh on one’s skin! This foaming wash is no different: the texture is soft, light and incredibly smooth, almost like we are holding air.
This is how the bottle looks like from the inside! I am also completely partial to the pump mechanism because it means that we can retrieve amounts of the face wash without contaminating the rest, which is a key problem for germaphobes like myself when using squeeze or scoop face washes.
One of the even better things about this face wash is how the pump allows one to dispense a suitable amount of face wash depending on how hard you press: I have come across those which dispense copious amounts regardless of how lightly you press the pump. Like, com’on! My face isn’t that big!
|Information on the package!|
I have to say I am really impressed with the amount of information they put on the packaging in an attempt to educate the consumers on the need to remove sebum because of the adverse effects it can have on a person’s skin.
Whilst the instruction suggests 3-4 pumps, I think that 1 pump (and sometimes I use half) is more than enough because seriously your face is not that big, and the foam gives a relatively decent coverage.
For the Foaming Facewash, I am super impressed by how well it is able to remove oil from my face and also keep my face relatively matte, and I won’t hesitate to give it a 9/10! I deducted one point because of the relatively higher price: S$19.80 for 150ml. That makes it almost 20 dollars!
Next up, we have the sebum care lotion!
|Curel Sebum Care Lotion|
Like the face wash, the sebum care lotion comes in a pump bottle to allow one to dispense amounts in a hassle free, (relatively) drip free manner!
|I love the frosted glass look of the bottle, it looks so chic|
The texture is light, moisturizing and is absorbed almost instantly upon application. It is capable of hydrating the skin for an extended period of time, and in dry, cooler weathers, your skin will stay relatively matte, whilst in hot humid and sultry days, your skin may feel a little damp after a while.
I haven’t been a huge fan of toner ever since finishing my previous one because I find it too annoying since there hasn’t been a time whereby my toner does not drop from my hand to the floor whilst I am trying to pour them out.
Such a situation won’t happen with this one!
Can you see the streak of the lotion? It has a water like consistency and is very very easy to massage into your skin:) For this, I would give it a 10/10! Careful not to press the pump too hard or it will shoot out a stream of the lotion! ^~^”
The lotion cost S$24.90, which is another slightly high price, but it can probably last you a while since only a pump is needed for each use!
Last but not least, we have the moisturizer!
|Curel Sebum Care Moisture Gel|
|Curel Sebum Care Moisture Gel|
The texture for the moisture gel is slightly heavier, which is to be expected since the product says “gel” and not lotion and stuff, but it is still relatively smooth and not suffocating as one usually expects gel to be.
In terms of hydration, it does a fairly good job, but I think the catch is that with good hydrating qualities, it seems to also speed up the oiling process of my face! Not sure if other people experience it – it could be just me and my overactive oil glands.
Whilst I love the hydrating effects of the gel, perhaps in our local weather, it would better if we wear this when we are going to stay in an air-conditioned area for long periods (because the air tends to be drier), instead of when we are going out into the heat. I feel that the gel tends to get sticky and more uncomfortable when I am sweating, but it is excellent for use in air-conditioned rooms, or in dry winter weathers overseas.
The moisture gel costs $34.90 for 120ml, and I am guessing that the higher price means that it is going to be an effective treatment for the skin! I am so going to finish my entire bottle!
For the moisture gel, I would give it a 6/10, because I am still baffled as to why it causes my face to oil more a little quickly heh xD
There we have it! The post face-wash skin treatment set!
