Curtain Call: NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop

Hey guys! Happy Friday! Today’s post is on a product I got from my ipsy September 2017 Glam Bag. Here’s my thoughts on the NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop.

NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop

What I love about this product? It is described with the following on their website: “A unique oil drop texture that combines the hydrating effects of oil and moisturizing effects of an ampoule in a one-of-a-kind formula containing precious white truffle. This serum improves dark dull skin tone while giving a glow to skin. The result? You will see a hydrated, bright, and glowing looking skin. Its hypoallergenic formula is perfect for all skin type including sensitive skin.” The product itself is golden yellow in color and is clear. It has a subtle glowing effect when applied onto my face. The feeling left on my face when applied is not greasy at all. I use a generous drop (or 2!) of this and spread it all over my face with my fingers. I use this as my step 4 in the Korean 10-step skin routine I started a little while ago (my nightly routine is now up to 9 steps every night). It is so light that I keep on layering stuff onto my face with no issues on how my face feels with it. To me, there is a scent to it but it’s so light that I honestly don’t even know how to describe it. My husband sniffed it and said he can’t really smell anything, so this is a definite win in my book! I’ve used this product for at least 2 whole months and I love how light it is while making my face feel so soft and supple.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing at all! I am now trying another facial serum as I ran out of this a few weeks ago and let me tell you, this is so much better.

NEOGEN Dermalogy Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser

Hey guys! Today’s post is on a product I got from my close friend Renu. She was sent this to try it out and stuff but it didn’t work out for her. While the product seems that it works well, she found it to be too drying for her skin. She passed it onto me and here are my thoughts on the NEOGEN Dermalogy Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser.

NEOGEN Dermalogy Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser

What I love about this product? Everything from the pump bottle to the green colored packaging to the scent — it’s all very appealing to me. I was wary about trying out a new facial cleanser but since my friend found it too drying, it might be perfect for me since I think I have oilier skin than her. The first 2 times I tried it, I could see what she meant about it being on the drying side. It cleans my skin very well, stripping almost ALL of the oils from my face. While I love it, I do agree with her that it’s on the drying side. BUT! I started the Korean 10-step skin routine (mine’s more like 8 steps really) and the first step is using an oil based facial cleanser. The cleansing oil I’ve been using is DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. While it doesn’t leave my face with a lot of oil, I could still feel some left over on my face. Enter the NEOGEN Dermalogy Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser for step 2 and it is PERFECT for it! It cleans and strips away whatever is left over after using the cleansing oil. My face is ready then for the next step (facial toner). The way I apply this is to use one pump’s worth of foam and spread it over my dry (or close to dry) face. I rub in or massage it in as much as I can and wet my fingers to add water to it on my face. I find that I have better control this way than a few other ways I’ve tried to use this product.

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing other than accessibility probably. The price is a bit higher than most generic cleansers but it lasts a long time and it’s worth the price.

ipsy September 2017 Glam Bag

I know, I know…it’s October already! But I already took the pictures a while back and rather have them go to waste I’ll just make a quick post about it. Here’s what I got in my ipsy September 2017 Glam Bag.

ipsy September 2017 Glam Bag

The bag itself is pretty different from what I’ve come to expect from ipsy for years. I like how it’s edgy. First item that caught my eye is the NEOGEN Dermalogy White Truffle Serum in Oil Drop. I love trying out new facial serums. This is on my next to try as soon as I free up a spot for it in my facial care regimen. Next is Ciaté London Wonderwand Mascara. The shade I got this in is called Black Magic. I think this is the only shade this particular product item comes in for now though. Then we have the Smashbox Cosmetics Photo Finish Radiance Primer. I don’t use primer much but I do testing with it to compare how it fares with other primers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It’s just a “thing” of mine. Next we have the The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Rejuvenating Face Cream. I’m finishing up something from Philosophy right now and I’ll make sure this is next or the one after the next face cream I use. Last up is Dirty Little Secret Cosmetics Lip Gloss. The shade I got this in is Nude Beach. I got too many lip stuff open so I’ll add this to my gifting pile. It’s a nice shimmery shade with a gold duochrome flash.

Overall, pretty good. There’s a lot of stuff I will be using in this month’s bag.
