FEBRUARY 2021 SKINCARE HAUL

Since I lost my permanent job and do freelance gigs from last year, I admit that I downgraded on my skincare purchases. I’m only picky on pricing, though, not quality!

Sharing you my skincare purchase this month. 

GOODAL APPLE AHA CLEARING AMPOULE
It’s hard to find skincare products without Butylene Glycol (I believe this trigger my comedones), let alone an ampoule or serum. So when I found one, I decided to purchase it even though this one contains fragrance at the very last ingredients’ list. I bought this fungal acne safe ampoule on a market place, from a South Korea’s seller for IDR 225K for 30ml. 

MENTHOLATUM ACNES DERMA CARE ANTI-BLEMISH ESSENCE
Stumbled upon this while doing my quick grocery shopping at local mall near my house. Priced at IDR 72K for a 20ml, I believe we shouldn’t apply as its’ name. I wonder why they named it ‘Essence’ while they also recommend to apply this as spot treatment. It contains vitamin C for brightening purpose but it was made for sensitive and acne prone skin. Interesting, right?

MENTHOLATUM ACNES DERMA CARE GENTLE CLEANSER
Currently they only have two products on this Derma Care line, so I decided why not. Priced at IDR 62K for a 120gr, it’s a pH balanced cleanser with two kinds of alcohol in the ingredients’ list (Cetyl and Cetearyl Alcohol). But, they also include the right stuffs, like Aloe and Salicylic Acid, alongside their hero ingredient, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid). Unfortunately, this cleanser still contains one ingredient that might trigger Fungal Acne, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate.
