Curél Sebum Care

Do you know that excess sebum can aggravate skin sensitivity?

A lot of people who have both conditions – skin sensitivity and oily skin tend to place more emphasis on choosing products that help with their skin sensitivity.

This is not enough. Excess sebum generated will deteriorate as skin gets more alkaline, turning into irritants to cause flare-ups within the skin layers.

Hence it is important to choose products that effectively control skin sensitivity while reducing sebum secretion from the source.

Curél, Japan’s No. 1 brand for sensitive Asian skin, introduces a new skincare range specially formulated for sensitive and oily or combination skin types. The Curél Sebum Care range - comprising a Foaming Wash, Lotion and Moisture Gel - offers the skincare essentials to properly manage both skin sensitivity and sebum secretion.

Use the Curél Sebum Care range, after makeup removal, is in this sequence:
  1. Foaming Wash 
  2. Lotion 
  3. Moisture Gel

Benefits of using Curél Sebum Care range:

  • Every day after usage, skin will be kept in matt condition for 8 hours.
  • In 4 weeks, skin sensitivity and excess sebum will be under control.
  • Strengthen skin barrier function to protect skin against external irritants. Protects and replenishes ceramide, an essential component of skin, for a more resilient barrier 
  • Oil and acne control. Regulate sebum secretion at the source.

  3. Lotion takes slightly more time to absorb. To aid absorption, pat clean hand on face repeatedly.

Curel Sebum Care Moisture Gel $34.90/120ml

Liquid based gel spreads easily for speedy absorption into deeper layers of skin without leaving skin sticky.

My Review on Curél Sebum Care range

Two full pumps from the Curél Sebum Care Foaming Wash and applied it directly on my wet face. I like the texture of the foaming wash. The foam feels as if it's really washing off the dirt and oil while massaging my face with it. After washing off the foam with water, I can feel the matte texture of my face.

Next is to apply the Curél Sebum Care Lotion after drying off. Pumped about two pumps of the lotion and patted on my face. It is a clear, transparent liquid. It feels lightweight upon application, hence the clean feel from the wash is still there.

Lastly, I applied the Curél Sebum Care Moisture Gel. The gel is milky coloured. The gel immediately hydrated my face, giving my face the moisture it needs for the rest of the day.

My first application was done last night. And to my amazement, when I woke up this morning, my face still feels matte and my face was not oily at all. I like how my face feels this morning.

Let me try this for another 13 days to get the effect of the Curél Sebum Care range.

[Updated: 13 July 2014]
After trying out so many kinds/brands of basic face care (wash, toner, moisturiser), I feel that the Curél Sebum Care range is very suitable for my skin type. This range of products had greatly improved my oily yet dry complexion that has been going on for a while, that has caused me frequent outbreaks and blocked pores. I like how I wake up to a non oily face, and after a day out, my face does not feel like I have just came out of some oily cook house.

Curél Sebum Care range is available at selected Guardian and Watson’s stores from 16 June. For more

Kaohsiung : Fo Guang Shan 佛光山

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After a much complicated directions online on how to get to the Fo Guang Shan 佛光山, we decided to take the KRT to Zuoying Station and then take the bus, 哈佛快線. Exit the Zuoying KRT Station and wait at Bus Platform 2 for the 哈佛快線 to come. There is a time schedule for the bus to arrive. Each bus trip cost NTD70 per person. You can use the iPass to tap in and out for the journey.

Alternatively, based on online reviews, you can take bus 8010/8011 at 高雄客运. It is just opposite our hotel and behind 国光客运. However, it is not recommended by the staff there as it is a much longer time and distance, that's why she recommended us to take the 哈佛快線 at Zuoying.

Here's the bus. We waited quite some time as we were early.

Here's the bus schedule.

We have reached Fo Guang Shan 佛光山. A little overwhelmed by the map. It's a huge place. And since it's on a hill, there are alot of slopes and stairs. Just thinking about it make my knees go weak.…

Kaohsiung : Food and more food

Besides eating at Night Markets, we also went to some recommended places online and on TV. These places are not that near from the KRT and need some working out on feet.

BO 雪球餅乾咖啡館 BO Schneebälle Cafe 新光三越高雄左營店3F | Shin Kong Mitsukoshi (Zuoying) level 3

We had accidentally went past this cafe in Zuoying Shin Kong Mitsukoshi 星光三越. The hubby saw a TV show recommending this special biscuit ball where you need to hammer it to eat in smaller pieces. We tried it as it was quite fun. We had the chocolate flavoured one.

The huge wooden hammer in shop to break the biscuit ball into pieces.

I think we hammered too much... Haha the ball became overly small pieces. It's delicious.

You can buy as gifts. If I remember correctly, three balls into one container.

I am pretty regretful that I did not buy more to bring home. I like the taste of it a lot. And I am missing it so much. Ahh.. Delicious.

Kaohsiung : Cijin Island 旗津島

PS: This will be a long post with many photos.

After visiting The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and the Takao Railway Museum 打狗鐵道故事館 in the morning, our following itinerary was to head to the Cijin Island 旗津島. By the way, if we were able to travel around on bicycles, it would be much easier. So, do rent a bicycle to travel around if you are able to cycle. Especially for The Pier-2 Art Center 駁二藝術特區 and on Cijin Island 旗津島.

About 10-15 minutes walk from the Orange line KRT station, Sizihwan Station 西子灣站 (O1), you will be able to reach the ferry terminal. Follow the signs (鼓山渡轮站) on the lamp posts to get to the ferry terminal.

 The ferry also ferries passengers travelling with bicycles and motorcycles. For us, without any cycles, it costs NTD15 per person per trip. You can pay in cash or iPass.

The ferry ride is only about 5 to 10 minutes. Cijin Island 旗津島 is just opposite, separated by the waters. The ferry terminal looks nicer on the island.

There's a temple on the island. Cihhou Godde…
