It felt like Christmas morning when I opened this huge Watsons Beauty Box filled with the best Skin Wonders. I must admit though, I got a tiny bit overwhelmed when I saw all its contents. A part of me wanted to open everything and slap them all on my face and body at the same time. (LOL. That would’ve been a pretty sight.) So to spare you from feeling the same way I did, I pulled myself together, tried the products one by one and came up with my top five skin wonders I think you guys will love.
Before anything else, let me show you the contenders first. As you can see, it’s not an easy feat picking out just five skin wonders out of all of these amazing products. But I did, just for you.
Pick no. 1: Quick FX Pimple Eraser. Pimples are my worst enemies so I’m always on the look out for miracle products like this one. Quick FX Pimple Eraser contains salicylic acid that helps prevent and treat acne and clear out blemishes and dark spots. It also has glycolic acid that rejuvenates and evens out skin tone and clears pores by removing dead skin cells. I usually just apply this at night, on the evil, evil pimple and the next day, my pimple is visibly smaller and dried up.
Pick No. 2: Purederm Spot Reducer Gel Patches. I used to hoard pimple patches when I was a teenager so I know this kind of product well. I use it on really swollen pimples. (You know, the kind that has a life of its own.) I leave the patch on overnight for a couple of nights and poof, my pimple doesn’t look so angry anymore. The secret here is its specially formulated hydrogel treatment that contains salicylic acid. The patches reduce the appearance of pimples without irritation by penetrating its magic where you need it most.
Pick No. 3: Quick FX No-Shine Mattifier. For those of you who have combination or oily skin, this one is for you. It’s a light moisturizer that helps you achieve flawless-looking skin while maintaining a smooth matte finish. Use it like a primer before applying your make up. You don’t have to apply it all over your face. You can just put it on areas you need to mattify like the T-zone. If pores or fine lines reappear during the day, just re-apply this over your makeup and blend.
Pick No. 4: Purederm Collagen Eye Zone Mask. I always work late so these come in handy whenever my eyes need an instant pick-me-upper. It’s an intensive eye care treatment moistened with rich collagen, Vitamin E and green tea extract to help restore moisture and elasticity under your eyes. It helps reduce eye puffiness too. Ladies, better start using these. You don’t want any signs of aging or stress showing now, do you?
Pick No. 5: Purederm Snail Cell Illuminating Multi-Step Treatment. There are a lot of facial masks that use snail extracts but what sets this one apart is that it’s a 2-step treatment. First step is to apply an even layer of the cell-illuminating ampoule to brighten and even out one’s skin tone and facilitate easier absorption of the active ingredients on the mask. Then second step is to place the snail mask on to your face for 20 minutes. It’s important to note that the snail mask is actually 3D and not flat so it covers your entire face, even the facial ridges and jaw line. After peeling the mask off, your skin will feel refreshed, bright and smoother!
