ESKINOL: Back to Basics

Friday, May 10, 2013

Aside from a mini reunion with some of my closest blog friends, spent Wednesday night with Honey and Ava  at the Lorenzo's Way BHS for the Eskinol Event.

Parang reunion talaga! :) Before Honey left for Kuwait / Family, the three of us were together din! 

The Eskinol event started with the "Cotton Ball Test"! The Eskinol ladies demonstrated to us how a cotton ball + Eskinol can remove deep seated dirt that soap cannot. With its micro-cleanse anti bacterial formula, it will surely leave your skin thoroughly cleansed!

Audience participation! ;p They tested Eskinol's cleansing ability kahit sa hand lang! ;p

Anyway, I entitled this post "Back to Basics" dahil narealize ko lang how I tried all sorts of facial wash, cleansers, and other products since blogging started to boom (for features/reviews). I am not sure if it's a good thing to experiment while trying to figure out the best facial products for you, but at the same time, medyo harmful din sha. Never had breakouts during my teen years, at ngayon lang talaga! Either hormonal yan (paka emo ko kasi, hahaha) or due to too-much facial product experimentation (hehe), so now I decided to just go back to the basics: Eskinol as toner / astringent!

From fruity "flavors", Eskinol's recent overhaul involved changing the names, specifying the target use / skin concern for each Eskinol variant. My favorite is the Pimple Fighting Facial Deep Cleanser!

Other Eskinol variants:
1. Eskinol Classic Whitening Facial Deep Cleanser (Clear)
2. Eskinol Classic Whitening with Grains Facial Deep Cleanser
3. Ekinol Pimple Fighting Deep Cleanser
4. Eskinol Papaya Smooth White Facial Deep Cleanser
5. Eskinol Spotless White Facial Deep Cleanser
6. Eskinol Oil Control Facial Deep Cleanser
7. Eskinol Refreshing Facial Deep Cleanser
8. Eskinol Ice Pore Facial Deep Cleanser
SRP: 75mL PhP 29.50, 135mL PhP 46.00, 225mL PhP 66.50

An interesting trivia I learned that night: What is the difference between deep cleansers, toners and astringents?
A: Both toners and deep cleansers are used after washing, to remove deep-seated dirt (especially those that cannot be removed by washing alone). Toners also have less alcohol content than deep cleansers.
Astringents, also known as exfoliants, are used to visibly peel off the top layer of your skin.

Q: At what age can I start using the Eskinol Facial Deep Cleanser?
A: You can start using the Eskinol Facial Deep Cleanser as early as 11 years old!

Meanwhile...I also won the Q&A game! Yehey! Got 2 California Nail Spa GCs! ;D Woot!
