Ah. The memory is still clear to me. Three months ago, I joined Skin Dewi Organic Skincare Workshop. Not wanting to have any expectations, actually leaving me home with all the priceless experience and new knowledge. The workshop made me feel like I’m still in the same world, but in a different dimension. Stepping into a whole new level. Refreshing and stimulating, yet still familiar.
One of two most asked questions I receive often is how to get rid of acne. The other being how to fade the spots they leave behind. Acne is a bitch to begin with. It’s most people’s biggest nemesis in terms of skin problem. I don’t think there’s anyone out there who wants to have any. It doesn’t matter whether a person only have one or the whole skin is covered with them. Dealing with acne is a tough work, even continuous to many.
It’s not just about skincare, because it can only do so much. It comes down greatly to our genes, lifestyle and environment. There are potent treatments like Roaccutane for severe cases and I have seen some gruesome side effects from it – this I would only recommend if you have problem that’s rooted internally. Otherwise, sticking to topical treatment and taking great care of our health are the best bet.
This post though, will cover the topical treatment that I have tried, specifically for spot treating.
I’m very happy to announce that The Fruit Compote is finally self-hosted and I’m excited for what’s to come! I hope that this move will allow me to do more great things for the growth of the blog even more.
With the move, there is a slight change, in terms of subscription. Here’s the detail:
- For those of you who have subscribed via email and Bloglovin previously, no worries, you will still be getting email notifications when a new post is published.
- However, for those of you who follow me via WordPress, you’ll have to renew and subscribe via email in the new blog.
If you aren’t one of the above and want to stay updated with my future posts, I encourage you to hit the Subscribe button on the side bar (or bottom, if you open this via mobile)!
Thank you everyone for the continuous support that have brought The Fruit Compote to where it is now. Without you, this is not possible.
Check out the new revamped TheFruitCompote.com and let me know what you think! 😀
I’m aware that it has taken me this long to review this product. I’ve used it for nearly two years and mentioned it often in my blog and Instagram. Even with the multiple requests, I failed to deliver. I think it’s because I want people to try this product with no expectations or reservations. It was a beautiful discovery on my part and I wish for others to experience the same.
Or maybe, it’s the other way around. Sometimes I feel selfish not wanting to share great gems because in several occasions, the product went sold out and I wasn’t able to have a back up LOL. Well, sharing has its pros and cons. That being said, ultimately, I’m most happiest when I can help others 🙂
Here you go, it’s time to put it down, digitally. May I present, Leahlani Champagne Serum.
When it comes to skincare, I have a soft spot for multi-functional products that offer versatility in terms of formula and usage. Products like these don’t just give me a run for my money, but also add plus points in the experience department.
We tend to like masks as a once-a-week (or more) treatment because they usually give instant results that we can enjoy the next morning, or throughout the day, depending on when we use it. I’ve started on mixing different masks for quite a while now to elevate the function or simply creating an even more pleasant routine.
Odacité SYNERGIE Beauty Masque is one of those masks.
I can’t tell you enough there were butterflies in my stomach that Wednesday morning. It oddly reminded me of day one at a new school. These little jitters. New environment. Meeting new faces. I kept telling myself “you’ll be fine, you’ll be alright”. One thing for sure though, I can’t wait for the class to start.
It’s worth noting that I intentionally didn’t read the Skin Dewi workshop module beforehand. I didn’t know the details of what we’re going to do in the next 3 days. All I knew that it’s going to be about organic skincare formulation. It was a deliberate and wise decision on my end because I wanted to start with a clean slate. No prejudgments. I didn’t want to fill my head with certain expectations or assumptions. Coming in with an open mind had indeed served me well throughout the course.
I am actually conflicted whether or not I should tell you what we did in the workshop. I feel like I might be giving you too many spoilers. But I’ll throw breadcrumbs here and there 😉
Not too long ago, I was beginning to feel that my routine (in general) has started to get stagnant and it tickles me slowly but sure. Work is consuming my mental health more than ever (FYI, The Fruit Compote is my channel to de-stress). Beauty world-wise, I’m, as always, ecstatic that I’m discovering more and more new brands with different perspectives and approaches coming into the market. I’m delighted that even more local brands are popping out one after another, though I have some reservations about the redundancy in terms of product offerings. Regardless, full support here for the effort. But some days, it seemingly feels like it’s just another day at work, so to say.
It’s not that I’m not thankful or excited of the launches. Believe me I do, most likely more than ordinary consumers. I would still have lemmings and wishlist here and there. But I don’t think I can escape this little knock in my consciousness, not for longer. In the back of my mind, it started to dawn on me that no matter what it is, the level of suspense is more less the same. Some highs and some lows. And that’s pretty much it. I almost have seen it before. However, let me get this straight. It’s not the offerings, it’s me.
I need a refreshment. A change.
