The truth is, I am lucky to have a good skin since I was born. (only that my skin will easily get sunburned if I didn't cover my face with sunblock and I will automatically looks like a niggar..hohoh =p). Alhamdulillah. Thanks a looottt to my mum who bought and provided me with a good skincare product since I was in form 4. And I never failed to repurchase their sunblock product since then. As far as I remember, I only have acne problem during my high school year, form 3- form 4 I guess. And it wasn't really serious..just small pimples on forehead and normal stuff for a teenage girl. o_O
Past few months, I guess 3 months ago, I suddenly notice that pores around my nose became visible. So, I went googling to search about suitable product to buy. Basically I found nothing *sad* but I found a product that has great reviews. Everyone is like talking about that product saying that it is the best product ever, just type the name of the product and lotsaa nice reviews about it popping out. It is a compact powder which gives a best result on make up with a very reasonable price. It is said that even artist, make-up artist, mak andam, pak andam, mak ayam, bapak ayam, anak ayam also use it and it is one of ppl's recommended items as it gives a result like branded make up products.
Therefore, I think why don't I give it a try since lotsa people telling how good this product is and it's cheap sumore. It's time for me to get prettier with a new compact powder.. yeayy! (that is what i was thinking at that time after getting boring using Silkygirl or Maybelline compact powder all the time since high school and what more, the one that I purchased were always the cheapest one among all *aiyoo-so-kedekut*). I were then right away went to Guardian and purchased the product. I went home happily as I bought a new make up with an imagination that I will become prettier. Kihkih.
Tadaaa.. this is the so called popular compact powder in Msia. HeHe. The price is below RM20
Okay, the story is actually begin here~~~ After using it for a while, 3/4 small pimples came visited my face. I guess it wass because of the environment factor, from dust specifically that caused it. So, I think it will go away after some time as usual. And I found that, that compact powder does not really cover my pores. I went to Guardian again, to find something that can cover my pores, like a primer (couldn't find it there) or maybe a foundation (I never purchased any real foundation). After looking around, I saw a new packaging of the same compact powder that I had purchased before. It's gold in color and looks like it is an upgraded version. So I end up buying the refill one because it's cheaperrr of course. (Why am I purchasing the same product after all? Me myself don't know why this happen, maybe because I had been brainwashed by reading those fantastic reviews of that product back then). I still believe that this product will help me to look better!!
It looks glamour and like a branded product isn't it? I like the new packaging. The price is around RM10.
Time passed then I realized that I get facial rashes..Macam ada ruam-ruam kecil di muka tu..I was kinda shock because that was my first time having that kind of thing on my face. I thought it will go away later on but I was wrong. Haih. The rashes then became pimples. It attacked all over my face. I already changed and also purchasing other products to reduce the problem. But it stays the same and suddenly I realized that the only thing that I didn't stop using is..............the compact powder!! I went googling right away using the keywords like "pixy compact powder menyebabkan jerawat (caused pimples)" . Then this one thread came out and I read every single thing on that thread and I came into a conclusion that, the cause of my problem is that compact powder. Silly me, only realizes about it after months! Looks like I was really being brainwashed. It has to be noted that, only really few unlucky people having this problem with the product.
Most of people on the thread still saying that the product work best on them and be careful while purchasing because the problem might came from fake/expired product. They mentioned that if purchasing at Guardian or Watson, then it is genuine. The thing is, I bought it at Guardian and the manufactured date was the same year I purchased it. To conclude, the product really does not go well with my skin. My skin have to suffer from this allergy. Poor me ='( . This is what we call, "salah pilih ouh!" Hehehe.
Right now I've stop using it and no more pimples coming out but still I have to wait for the scars to vanish! My older brother said that my facial skin looks like I'm having a chicken pox. What the..........In conclusion, always think negative first when you buy new products. When you think negatively bout it, then it makes you more aware and you will be able to detect if the product doesn't suits you. If it gives you good results, then you can continue using it. =)
I want to stress that, our skin reaction towards any product is different from other people. Even though I have baddd experience with pixy, most of other people enjoy using it. So, you can try purchase this product as it is cheap but the smart way is that you can buy the refill pack first because it's way cheaper. Hehe. Then, always give attention to your skin from day to day. If nothing happen to your bare face, then you have nothing to worry about!
p/s : I'm still hoping my skin will go back as before ASAP. Acne scars, please go away!! God, please give me my beautiful and flawless skin back. Amin. *praying*
another p/s: I already found a product that will reduce pore size. Will share with you later. =D
