Wrinkle Stop


I just turned 35 last September and suddenly I have become concerned with my skin. I started visiting my new dermatologist on a regular basis to address some skin problems. I have a very oily skin. I thought if I wash my face as often as I can, it will be good for my skin. Oh, I know it's not right. But I love the feeling of a newly washed face. Lately, I noticed that my skin is now oily and at the same time dry.

My dermatologist advised me to stop my toner. Continue with the Cetaphil Soap and moisturizer and limit washing my face to only twice a day. I was using the Quick and Clean line from The Face Shop. When I visited the store recently, a new product was introduced to me. The Wrinkle Stop  Abyssine line. 

I only bought the Wrinkle Stop Abyssine Emulsion. According to the label, Abyssine is a survival molecule harvested from microorganisms that inhabits in hydrothermal vents (huh.. scary?!) in the deep sea of the Galapagos Islands 3,000 meters deep from the water's surface. I really do not know how these molecules will help my skin.  But I've read from the website that the Wrinkle Stop Abyssine Emulsion is suggested for the revitalization and nourishment of the skin. It is an emulsion that helps in the prevention of wrinkles, gives moisture and gets rid of dead skin cells. I was hoping that they have a smaller size but it only comes in a 130ml bottle. I have been using this for a month now and so far, I am happy with the result. The emulsion also does not feel heavy on the skin. I tried the Arsainte Eco-Therapy Vitalist Serum, after a while my face feels so sticky. Good thing I just got it as a freebie.

I also got myself the Herb Day Lip and Eye Makeup Remover. I use this to remove my waterproof mascara, eyeliner and lipstick. Although this does not remove all traces of  eye makeup, I still need to clean my eyes with Maybelline Make Up Remover Eye & Lip, then clean my face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and lastly, wash my face with Dove White Beauty Bar. Somehow my problem with bringing the moisture back has already been addressed. I'll be visiting my dermatologist again two weeks from now for my facial. Next problem to address, the pores!

Another item I bought is Face it Designing Cake Eyebrow. I've been wanting to learn how to fix my not so defined brows. I'm not sure if this product is good. I am still not getting the effect I want. But for now, I think it's more of my lack of skill to fix my eyebrows.
