Botani Acne Rescue Cream - Oh Please Save Me Skin!!

I've always had this thing with Organic products. Though... they are always great to use but never gave any miracles. See that Organic shop in the shopping mall? I probably have a membership there... Garner the fact that either I applied for the membership or bought too many products at one go.... LOL... 2012 New Year Resolution.... THIS ONE HOARDER HABIT has SERIOUSLY got to GO!!!

Okay, so this time, the TNS (The Natural Source in Midvalley) shop was too tempting to resists going in. That's when it took me tops 5 minutes to decide on another skincare range - Botani Skin Rescue Kit.

You know... I haven't even heard of this brand until now (2 weeks later of using the Botani Acne Rescue Cream from their product line) Seems like I don't even need to do much reviews on this. The amount of claims that this is an AWESOME product is massive!!! Look at the reviews and the BEFORE-AFTER pics (oooh my....) from these lengluis....

Conclusion PROS:
  • Works in gradually killing off bacterial acne (tiny bumps that's starting to turn huge will just slowly DISAPPEAR... muahahahahaa)
  • Does not dry the skin and its pretty nice to use (even thought the scent is umm... rather interesting)
  • Anything that helps the skin... is a PRO
Conclusion CONS:
  • Seems like the shelf life of this product is pretty short... Hopefully it does not turn ineffective before at least 2 months is up
  • This WILL NOT get rid of acne caused by internal factors. It will help maintain it at a... ummm... acceptable size... lol... but... Your acne will stay till you do something about your DIET... See my post on Lemon Juice and Apple Detox

When Concealers Easily Wears Off... Get Shu Uemura Pro Gel Concealer!!


You know those work-days where lengluis spend long hours ##WORKING## and there's just no time for touch ups?? So just how did those lengluis manage to hide the HUGE red acne? I mean... there's gotta be acne somewhere!!! lol....

Hohohohoho... They were probably using... Shu Uemura Pro Gel Concealer!!! Why does iwannabelenglui say that? See her reasoning below:


  • This concealer has STAYING POWER
  • It's does not cake, and covers seamlessly even for lengluis who lacks make-up-blending skills
  • Get the right shade and it'll work for the under-eye dark circle too!
  • Does not irritate the acne (But of-course you'll need to use a good make up remover at the end of the day)
  • Waterproof and smudge proof huhuhuhu... for the long hours...
  • Keep your hands clean and just dab on from the tiny jar
  • RM85 for a minuscule 5g jar? ITS STILL MUCH LOVED!!! 
  • (considering the regular breakouts from good food) lol....

First Step To Say Begone Body Acne!! - Hexagon Shower Filter

So umm, remember the post on Coway Water Softener? huhuhu.... iwannabelengui ended up not getting that because she trialled the water softener for a short period of time and... got the brilliant idea that... the first step to getting rid of body acne should be just a simple water filter! Okay, so maybe Uncle Google helped a little there... lol.... Get rid of the rust that you don't see and chlorine that would end up being bad for you lengluis in the long run.

And being true to her words, iwannabelenglui stuck by the shower filter (Hexagon Shower Filter to be precise) for several months already. Conclusion = OH-FOR-GODS-SAKE.... go get yourself a shower filter! If spending like RM100 or less for a simple filter that would last you 6 months without cartridge replacement means making so much of a difference to the skin, think about when you spend hundreds on your oh-miracle-skincare.

Go wrap a white cloth around your shower head and run the water through several minutes. If you see the cloth turning yellowish brown, baby, it's time you invest in a shower filter. It doesn't matter what brand you choose, just get a reasonably good one that lasts.

Conclusion for Hexagon Shower Filter:

  • Seriously? No more chlorine taste or smell
  • LOL... I really don't see the rust any-ways but yes... the back-acne reduced
  • When you shower, it feels good... Like showering in drinking water...   
  • Money-well-spent....  muahahahahhaha...
  • Reason for getting this brand? 'Cos its easily available and replacement cartridges are sold everywhere (cosway markets them)
