L'Oreal Derma Genesis Pore Minimizing Smoother

I'm now blogging at  Do drop by and visit :)

Check it out! L'Oreal Derma Genesis Pore Minimizing Smoother. Okay, I am not sure if there's a hype out there about this product, but I'm going to write a review on it.

Just some background info. My skin hasn't been all that great. Although I am fair, I feel that my skin is dull, lacks that glow. And, having tried Loreal products in the past and finding that my skin is not suitable for it, I've stopped for year.

Recently, a friend of mine gave me this bottle of Pore Minimizing Smoother to try. So I thought, why not? And that was almost one month ago. I figured I really need to do a review on this because girls, I AM EXCITED over it.

Like I said, my skin is dull. When I used it the first time, my first reaction was like, oh, it's not oily. Nor does it makes your skin feel sticky (I hate those sticky feeling.. urgh). And after that, when I look in the mirror, I saw that my skin looks slightly brighter and glowy on my cheeks. I didnt think too much about it as I was happy that my skin did not give me that tingly feeling when the product doesn't suit me, and I thought, oh okay, looks like I might be able to use this product then.

As I continue to use it, I realised that my skin is no longer that dull. It does look brighter and I love the pinkish glow on my cheeks. It is very natural and when you touch your skin, you will feel that it's smoother.

My friend shared with me that it's because it uses Hyaluronic Acid, which has anti aging elements in it. What I found out about this ingredient is that it helps to repair our skin which has been exposed to the many elements out there. And this is what happens to our skin when we are exposed to too many elements:

"When skin is excessively exposed to UVB rays, it becomes inflamed (sunburn) and the cells in the dermis stop producing as much hyaluronan, and increase the rate of its degradation." from Wiki.

Although it is slightly pricier counter products, I figured that if it works well for me, I might want to buy the whole range of their products! hehe...

Oh by the way, I know right now we love the idea of instant results.  But like any other products, I do believe that it will take a few months before results could be seen.  So in this case, I am going to be sticking to this products for about three months (as per advice by a friend) to see how the results would be like.

And whilst I'm writing this, my skin is clear from any make up or even moisturiser, and I do see that my cheeks are rosy pink =)  Don't you just love this product!
