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.

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
