MBD Strawberry Yogurt Amino Acid Cleanser

I know, I know, my blog is almost dead but hey, I am still surviving, despite I've caught the mister going out with another girl behind me. Days of tears and unhappiness have passed or at least I guess those days have to be put behind, else, I'll never advance. We shall talk about this in another entry.

Anyway, reviews and thoughts are still ongoing, it's just that I can't find the time to do since I've been really caught up with lotsa things lately. I'm gonna review the infamous My Beauty Diary Strawberry Amino Acid Cleanser today.

As far as I've announced few weeks back, I've been having really dry skin, especially on my usually-oily t-zone and also expression lines that the skin on those areas started peeling off on it's own. Scary, right? Well, thanks to the best artificial weather in the whole wide word - air-conditioner.

Aside from that, my complexion has also became dull due to insufficient sleep and water intake. Oh, geez, I've been busy, you see... not that I'm slacking off from blogging and also personal and private life but yeah, that was how horrible my skin was.

So, after much contemplation and hesitation, I came to accept I do have combination instead of oily skin because oily skin doesn't peel off on it's own, you see? Hence, I changed my skincare routine and also products.

I was very skeptical over this cleanser in the beginning because you know, I'm that kinda realistic girl that refuses to believe anything cute will work because cuteness is only for presentation purpose.

After using this for the past 3 weeks, hey... my skin has gotten better!

This cleanser is something you should try if you love scooping ice-cream because yeah, the concept is taking from ice-cream scoops.

Basically, a scoop will be included so that you can do the scooping thingy on your own. The smell isn't very strong and that's a minus point for me because I love cleansers with strong scents. I don't know why, it's just me, I guess. It smells of strawberry yogurt, obviously and not overwhelmingly strong.

On the whole, you don't even need to scoop out a lot of product to get foam and best part, not extremely foamy, which is good.

After 3 weeks, oh hey, my skin has really gotten better! Miracle does happen! Hahaha!

~ I can haz clear skin again ~

Picture taken without makeup, okay, so, please don't judge me. Hahaha... I know my dark circles are terrible but what can I do, right?

If you're interested and you don't have oily to combination skin like mine, they have Aloe cleanser, which is green in packaging for dry skin.

Gentle to the skin and no overwhelmingly strong smell for some of you. Easily found in local drugstores. Cute, of course.

Scoops! I hate scooping things because it's so inconvenient! If it could be in tube form, it'd be great.

I shall definitely stick to this cleanser for I don't know how long but hopefully they'll have ongoing discount for this product.

Ah.. Don't like the packaging and also the price is abit too much for me =/ *kiamsiap*

Ah, Isabel, sorry for the late reply. I've been really busy with lotsa things lately.

Yeah, RM39.90 is a bit hefty for a facial cleanser but if it does help maintaining my skin's youthfulness and also condition, I mean, splurging once a while is okay. Hahaha. I guess girls are famous for that excuse, right?

Ailise said...

Not entirely sure how this works... but you're right, weak smell and weird packaging. (I don't understand the scooping concept, haha). But was it really worth repurchasing?

Angel Valerie said...

Hi Ailise, I guess those are the plus points that really make me wanna repurchase that product but the set back is that, I hate scooping products out. So... if I am too lazy and hating to scoop out the products, I don't think I will repurchase this cleanser.
