Neogence ACE Revitalizing and Renewing Review

Finally, as promised, a review for this set. Well, just a lil' intro about how I was introduced to this range. I actually just got my pimples cured about 6 weeks ago(this is after my 2 trips to Dr Ting's Clinic!)  and was looking for beauty products to clear the scars from the really hideous breakout. Then I happened to come across SASA's customer testimonial, posted on their FB here and the result was like too good to be true but I was like


and decided to give it a shot. LOL.

Ok, I'll skip the part on the product intro. It's gonna make this blog so frigging long. You can read it from Sasa's blog or Neogence website.

Now let's get into the review part!

STEP 1: Deep cleansing

Kick starting my beauty regime with this:

[caption id="attachment_1398" align="aligncenter" width="490"] Fluffy ball of mousse~[/caption]
That's around 2-3 squeeze there. I usually pumped out twice and then put wash face and neck and massaging them in circular motion. I love how soft it feels on my skin! And I tell you, they don't call this step deep cleansing for nothing. Did a lil' experiment here:

[caption id="attachment_1406" align="aligncenter" width="490"] Step 3: Repeat step 2 and observe result. See da tiny residues left by the bb cream? Now just wash off with water and walah! Conclusion: behold the power of this mousse! Oh la lah~[/caption]
That should explain how well this mousse cleans! but I wouldn't advice you to just wash off your makeup this way. Preferably use a make up remover. LOL.Dry face with towel and you're ready for the next step!

Rating for this  mousse out of 5: ♥♥♥♥♥ oh yeah!*dance*

STEP 2: Water replenishment using ACE Intensive Whitening Lotion(30ml)

[caption id="attachment_1353" align="aligncenter" width="490"] clear liquid~[/caption]
It is and odourless, clear toner that feels somewhat refreshing to the skin. I usually use more than this(photo above) and dab it onto my face and neck~ This bottle can last up to 4-6 weeks. This is one step you shouldn't be missing since they help absorbs the other ingredients better.

Rating out of 5: ♥♥♥♥

STEP 3: Water Lock-In

[caption id="attachment_1415" align="aligncenter" width="490"] Creamy gel texture~[/caption]
This one's suppose to hydrate, brighten skin and even has anti-aging factors.  Love the sweet scent! You're suppose to use a proper amount and then spread it slowly since they take time to absorb. I wouldn't recommend using too much, maybe a little less than a 10 cent coin since there's just always some left unabsorbed into the skin.

Rating out of 5: ♥♥♥♥

STEP 4: Tips. Special Care with ACE Revitalizing Eye Serum(3ml)

This eye serum has some sorta weird scent which I didn't really like it but I'm not entirely bothered by it.  Though I kinda don't like the packaging in a tube since the content leaks a lil' sometimes so it gets pretty messy at the cap part. As for the results, I sometime find this serum to be working pretty well in hiding my eye bags but not completely removing them, well at least not with my zombie lifestyle. My rating for this eye serum: ♥♥♥

STEP 5: Tips. Pre Make-up Skin Care

[caption id="attachment_1420" align="aligncenter" width="490"] Ace Pore Concealing and Revitalizing Base Gel(ml)[/caption]

[caption id="attachment_1408" align="aligncenter" width="490"] Creamy feel~[/caption]
Most of the time I skip this part since I don't put on makeup much, but yeah, just trying it out. I didn't see much difference after putting it on. It's suppose to make pores look smaller but mine just look the same anyway. I'm guessing it did, however even out the skin so that when you apply makeup, they'll look more even.

Rating: ♥♥ since (1) Don't use this often and (2)I don't fancy the container. It's so hard to squeeze the content out! WTH!


And my conclusion? I absolutely LOVE this range! Especially the cleanser. I'm planning to use it for a while longer. Some of the very obvious observable results after using this set for a month includes fairer skin with healthier pinkish glow and a much more hydrated skin. In fact, these days I find my skin less oilier! Which is freaking awesome since my face don't appear 'shiny' or disgustingly oily(,>.<,) on photos anymore♥
Gotta apologize for not reviewing about the serum here since I wouldn't want to review something I haven't gotten the results yet. I've been using the serum for 1 week now together with this set but haven't seen much improvement so far.

I think it's because I mess up the steps a bit. For the past week, I've been using the serum after step 3, which I just realized is wrong since I'm suppose to apply them after step 2. Yeah, I'm this noob to this sorta stuff. Gahhhh~ So another review in a week or two for the ACE Neogence serum? Chow~!

~~~♠UPDATE ♠~~~

So I've been using ACE Neogence cleansing mousse+revitalizing hydrating fluid religiously for 2 months now and I just can't say how much I love them!! I realized I haven't gotten a single breakout ever since! Previously, one or two annoying zits usually pop up when I didn't get much sleep. But during the past weeks, with my zombie lifestyle, I have yet to notice any pimples breaking out. Amazing stuff! Totally swearing my loyalty to this brand ♥
