About 4 days ago I posted a video of my reveal of the package I got from Skin and Beyond by Beautederm. They are the Beautederm Skin Line distributor based in Butuan City, Philippines. My friend, Ms. Sylvia Sanchez, the Brand Ambassador for Beautederm, hooked me with Ms. Agnes Gogo, the proprietor of Skin and Beyond by Beautederm.
Now, I’ve been using my Beautederm products for 3 days and what can I say so far?
- I am beginning to feel a little bit of the prickly sensation around the skin of my nose, but this is to be expected they say. The brochure says this is the toner starting to work on your skin. But otherwise, no adverse effects whatsoever on my skin. No itching, no drying, no rashes – a good sign.
- The creams are not sticky and my skin absorbs them with no problems at all. It didn’t take much wait time for the absorption to happen.
- There is no strong scent, which is actually good because I get sneezy and irritated with very strong perfumes and odors.
- I can feel a little tightening of my skin, which for me means that the skincare ingredients are holding on to my skin. That’s something I like.
So far, so good.
I was doing videos of my skin care for the past 2 days to chronicle my skin improvements, but the videos didn’t pass my standards so I’m planning on doing a better one. So instead of giving you all a video update, let me just tell you what was in the package I got and what else I found out about the products.
I ordered their Premium Set. This is good for 4 months. The Premium Set includes:
- Two (2) 150g Papaine Soap
- 120ml Day & Night Toner
- Day Cream – 50g
- First Night Cream (1) – 50g
- Second Night Cream (2) – 50g
- Third Night Cream (3) – 50g
I also ordered these skin care products to supplement the main set:
- Back to Bare makeup remover. I know that I do full make-ups often so I need a good make-up remover.
- Facial Wash with pump. I wanted to augment the papaine soap with a facial wash because I’ve been habitually doing a duo-cleaning even back when I was doing my korean skin care routine.
- CC Cream in beige. The CC cream is to make sure that my foundation won’t clash with my other Beautederm lineup ingredients.
- Bleaching Lotion. I am almost out of the papaya lotion I bought the last I was home in the Philippines.
- Undereye Whitening Cream. The skin under my eye is something I worry about a lot that’s why I bought the undereye cream.
Just in case, people would ask, I ordered extra 3 Regular Sets (1 Papaine Soap, 60ml Day & Night Toner, 20g each of the 4 creams) and 5 Trial Sets (1 Papaine Soap, 60ml Day & Night Toner, 10gm each of the 4 creams).
So what really made the cut for me?
Beautederm is FDA Philippines-approved. Which means, it passed the scrutiny, analysis and tests of medical and laboratory experts to say that it is safe and pure to use and its production is regulated by an official agency of the Philippine Government. This to me is the most important thing. I wouldn’t want to use anything that was just made in an outhouse somewhere in the middle of China. I have to be sure that the government backs the ingredients used by the product.
Secondly, I have seen many testimonials on the net from independent bloggers and users. I spent almost one whole afternoon just watching youtube videos and reading blogs about it. There are some who have been using the product for some time now and they attested to the big improvements on their skin. If you have that much voluntary testimonies how can you not believe? Plus, the biggest of all endorsers is of course, Sylvia. I definitely am getting more convinced. (But where can I find this product here in the US?)
The one that really brought it home, tho, was my new friend, Lourdes. Lourdes, or Des as we call her, and I are part of a small dance group invited to perform in parties. When I first met her I’ve already noticed her skin. She didn’t wear that much make up, in fact during dance rehearsals, you can see that she wears none at all. But her face was glowing, her cheeks were pinkish and she has no blemishes wherever. One night after practice we ended up chatting. I had to ask her what gives? She revealed that her secret was Beautederm.
Beautederm? In my head I was thinking “so Beautederm does this??? So the product works???” My skin care routine can’t even give me that extra-shiny glowy skin. I know people say I don’t look my age and I don’t have that much wrinkles, thanks to my old skin care, but it never gave me that glow which I sought after so much.
Talking with Des that same night I also mentioned that “the” Sylvia Sanchez has been telling me about these products. Des instructed me to go back to her and ask if there was a way I can distribute the products here in Maryland because there are women who are wondering where to buy Beautederm (btw, she gets hers from California). And the rest of the story you already know.
And so I’m really hopeful about this product. In fact, I have to admit my expectations are high. In hindsight, I have a feeling I won’t be disappointed. I know that my skin is not what it used to be. I am, admittedly, in my middle age and the elasticity and suppleness of my skin is not what it used to be. The wrinkles are starting to creep in, I am aware of that. But I refused to have those yet! The 50s are the new 30s I heard a celebrity say. So I am not giving in to aging just yet. And you shouldn’t either.
So keep in touch with me. I have more wonderful blog entries about skin care for all of you, my dear 50-something sisters! Stay tuned. And until my next entry, keep safe!
