A few days ago, I received a package I’ve been anxiously waiting for. My Dermagist Ultimate Acne Clarifying System has arrived!
After some miscommunication, I finally received the set. Since I’m an international/Malaysian blogger, I don’t get products from the US sent to me for reviews so it was a surprise that Dermagist would make that exception for me. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Based on comments from their facebook and also their testimonials, I’ve been looking forward to receiving and trying out the products since I do have some acne problems lately due to stress and I’ve been suffering with severe acne scar on my face since forever. Yes, you don’t see it in the pictures, thanks to the almighty Photoshop but I’ve been hoping for a product that could truly help. Could this be it?
At first, I thought this company was a big scam since I do receive offers in my emails which seemed legit but then they stopped replying to me or just never responded back to my emails. Some canceled their deal without even letting me know. I really despise that and piss me off to no end. But glad to say that Dermagist is not a scam, phew The person I talked to was very nice.
So anyways. Back to the product.
It took quite a while to arrive because if you can read on the box, there’s a ‘detained by custom’ stamped on it. But glad they safely arrived to me shortly after.
So when I opened the box, I saw the brochure for Dermagist products, the instruction on how to use the system, the invoice and of course the products.
I was surprised that I received the whole Dermagist Ultimate Acne Clarifying System instead of just the scar fading cream. So THANK YOU VERY MUCH again to Dermagist. You have no idea how happy I am. And I’m also happy that the products arrived in good condition.
So here’s my set of Dermagist Ultimate Clarifying System. The set includes:
- Dermagist Detoxifying Cleanser with Resveratrol
- Dermagist Clarifying Cream with Resveratrol
- Dermagist Acne Scar Fading Cream with Acai Berry Extract
Resveratrol and Acai Berry are two very good ingredients that are well known. You can click on the links to find out more on the products. Basically, the cleanser and cream helps you control and clear up your acne while the scar fading cream targets the acne scar.
According to the website, the acne scar cream “targets the improvement of bumps, holes, and uneven texture of acne scars, while soothing discoloration, redness and bruising with Collaxyl®, Rosa Mosqueta, Glycolic Acid, Acai Berry, Niacinamide, Asafetida and Resveratrol“.
I have yet to see a product that actually mentions they’re targeting bumps, holes and uneven texture of acne scars. Usually it’s just for minor scars such as discoloration which is not even scar, they’re called blemishes. If you have depressed scars then you know that the chance to have even smooth skin is practically almost none. So could this product actually helps the skin textures?
As of tonight, I will be starting the system and will be monitoring for improvements for a week or so. Since I don’t have acne anymore (except blemishes) so I think I can start with the scar cream together.
I will write another review of the progress within a week or so, so be sure to come back for the result!

The Dermagist Ultimate Acne Clarifying System Set cost USD$119.99 instead of $199.97! And they do ship internationally.

My order from MakeUpMania has arrived today!
They followed my instruction to put ‘FRAGILE‘ on it, which is good The box arrived in perfect condition. I was scared to order at first since this is my first time ordering from them but since they have the cheapest option for shipping, I decided to gamble and order anyway.
It was surprisingly fast! The shipping cost USD$9.99 using USPS First Class International Mail and shipped from Denver, Colorado. Now from all the orders I had with amazon.om, normal standard international shipping usually would take 2 weeks. So I didn’t expect this order would come in less than a week. I have been searching for a place to buy Ben Nye Neutral Set Colorless Face Powder for a long time. I’m running out of the powder so I’ve been desperate.
This powder, to me, is THE BEST setting powder ever. If you don’t know Ben Nye, it’s a brand that focus on special effects and theatrical makeup so of course when you perform under harsh lights, you would get all sweaty. The best thing about this setting powder is that it has antiperspirant. It protects your makeup from melting when you sweat! I have had makeups on for a whole day and before I found out about this powder, my makeup would melt and become cakey and shit. Since I have oily face, it gets worse. This powder helps my makeup to stay on without melting from the sweat. It’s the best thing ever.
And this little bottle of 1.75oz or 49gm lasted me 1 1/2 years! It only cost USD$4.
I was surprised when I opened the box. They wrapped my stuff in this zebra pattern paper. It’s SO CUTE. I love it.
Amazon.com should learn how to protect items from MakeUpMania! It had 2 bubble pockets so double protection, PLUS they wrapped my powder bottle with bubble wrap so A+ on protection.
Yay finally have my face powder. I’ve been worried that I couldn’t buy one in time before mine runs out. I also ordered 24 pieces sponge wedges. It’s hard to find this wedge here. All local supermarkets and even beauty stores would carry the normal square sponge. This one has soft texture too. Love it. Both arrived in perfect condition. Overall I’m very happy with MakeUpMania and my order. Will definitely order again from them provided that they’re still in business.
What A Lazy Day.
I think I’m having PMS. I’ve been feeling down this past few days, and also my mood keeps changing. Been really tight financially too.. that’s not a good thing. Been thinking of opening an online shop to sell things. It’s gonna be a lot of hard work and money and time. I’m thinking about selling stuff like shirts, computer stuff, cute stuff… etc.
Heard of cafepress? It’s an online store where you can make and buy shirts.They have awesome shirts design. They have this really unique and cool breast cancer awareness merchandise and as a woman, it’s something that we should fear and be aware of. I fear of getting any type of cancer.. but this is the main because it affects a woman’s most precious asset – the boobs. So to support that, cafepress has shirts to support the cause.
Some are simple and nice but some are just cute and funny. I have one in particular that I wish to get – if only I had money.
Haha it’s pink on black and it has a cute skull! It’s so me. Plus the wording is funny – “TOUCH YOUR TATA’S“. Haha. If a guy sees this, and misunderstood it, they would try to touch some tata’s when it’s actually to support breast cancer awareness. But don’t get comfortable guys, because this cancer is not for women only. Guys can have breast cancer too though it’s rare. So guys should be aware of this too.
So yeah, shirts can help create awareness. You can make a change in someone’s life, directly or indirectly.
I think it’s about time I get my wisdom tooth on the right side of my mouth extracted.
But I’m scared of pain. I’m scared that it’ll damage the nerve as it’s an impacted tooth.
My dentist told me years ago that if it doesn’t bother me, I shouldn’t bother it. If I need to get it out, I’d need to be referred to the pro.
That scared the crap out of me.
One thing about going to the specialist is that, it will cost money. Don’t talk to me about government dental clinic because they don’t give a damn about your pain and all they wanna do is just extract that damn thing and be done with it. I’m still traumatized remembering mom’s teeth that she extracted when I was young. She pulled quite a few of her teeth and her gum wouldn’t stop bleeding for days. Then I saw my maid got her tooth extracted. It wouldn’t stop bleeding either! She was in so much pain.
I don’t have money to go to specialist. There’s one specialist in KL that I wanna go to. I don’t have any dental plan either that could help. This bites. Last month I found that my wisdom tooth is rotting or something. If I don’t act fast, I’m scared it will do a bigger damage to the other molar if it hasn’t already done some damage. I just need to find some time to go to KL for a checkup and see what the dentist said.
I keep going into a short hiatus.
I’ve been extremely busy trying to do 1001 things. I’ve taken an interest in baking lately and I’ve been making lots of cupcakes! Mmm good cupcakes. I will post some pictures when I’m not being lazy. It’s actually 8 am now and I have been up all night and I seriously need a little bit of sleep so I’m gonna make this fast.
I’m waiting for my order from amazon.com to arrive. I hate expedited shipping. Also, before, I could track my package but this time I can’t. One thing I really wanna get is the zumba exhilarate DVD. the trailer looks awesome! This look like it could be the best zumba dvd! I miss doing zumba. I can’t do any dance whatsoever in front of my TV area because it’s currently using a mat. I need carpet or else I’ll slip and prolly break a bone.
Check out the zumba promo – it looks awesome! I love the club-like setting.
