Battle of impurities!

Dr Ting's acne prescription for me. Clockwise: Pills, Toner, Cleanser (red), pimple gel and spot-on liquid (holding)

It's been 9 days since my first visit to Dr Ting's, my face is doing MUCH better since my January breakout. A couple of days ago, there's a new bump about to erupt on my chin, but with the help of Dr Ting's spot liquid and a bit help from The Body Shop's Tea Tree oil (great for pre-acne), Mr Bump won't stand a chance! It's getting smaller now :)

UPDATES
A few comments on Dr Ting's prescription:
Pills: It's ok. Just swallow. I just have to remind myself to eat it twice a day.
Toner: Not like other toner. I only wear one drop at effected area cos its one heck of a strong alcohol based liquid and its very dry. I'm using my other toner before sleep to balance my skin.
Pimple gel: Often get confused of the usage with moisturizer. It's very light, so i just swipe it through my pimpley part of the face.
Spot-on liquid: I dab a little drop on that Mr Bump and it dries him down. Careful not to lick it...erm, only idiot like me would likely to do so. T_T

Pimple buster = DONE, now pimple scar operation = ACTIVATING MISSION!

I've been reading a lot of success story on Colonial Dames's vitamin E oil and decided to give it a go. Even a good friend of mine is using vitamin E to heal some scars from her face. Vitamin E is measured by the IU's, the higher the IU the better (so they say). The highest for Colonial Dames's range is 30,000. So yesterday, after a few weeks of research, I decided to hit the Midvalley's Guardian to grab a bottle.

Luckily in Guardian this time around, they're having some sale on certain items including Colonial Dames. It's 15% off and they even have tester for it which is erm, a good thing and if only I can see the results real time there, haha, that would be awesome. But hey, better than nothing right?

I tried on their 17,500 IU vitamin E oil on the back of my hand....it feels icky. Somehow I'm not sure it's a good idea to put on more icky stuff than my already existing face oil :p

Then I found something better and its also from Colonial Dames, but specifically for Scar Care. Excellent! I bought it on 15% off for RM 59.41. It's more of a light cream base and it doesn't leave an icky feeling like oil does. It leaves a soft and nice feeling to the face. The direction sez to use it 4 times a day on a new scar to achieve desired results for 8 weeks and pre-existing scar will be for 3 to 6 months recovery. Will update this post for results soon!

Here's one review I found in Amazon,
"Very good for removing scars. I had chicken pox as an adult and needed something to help the scars heal quickly. This product speed up the process and progress is noticeable. At first I felt a burning and very itchy sensation on the applied areas, but it's the initial reaction and after the first couple of days it went away"
Colonial Dames Scar Care contains Vitamin E

I've been using The Body Shop's Vitamin E Intense Moisturizer on my scar for a couple of months, but I didn't really see much difference. However, I do like to wearing under my eye bag and the fine lines under my eyes. I'm only 25, but I think it's good to start early when it comes to moisturizing.


Colonial Dames or Palmer's? Far right bottle is how the Scar Care packaging look like

Impulsive shopping! I also bought this set (comes with extra small bottle) for RM 29.88 only!

My additional 'crazy' beauty regime COMING SOON!

  2. The first time altogether with the med (photo attached in the blog) are RM150. Quite cheap for first time consultation actually. According to my friend, for the follow up treatment/prescription, the payment is like cheaper than the first one. I'll go back again next week for follow up. Will let you know ;)

  6. LOL! It doesn't work for me. How severe is your scars by the way. If it's just a mild, dark spot, that will fade gradually within 3 months with the right exfoliation. Don't worry too much, skin will eventually renew :)

  8. Hi Ezra. Not that severe actually. It's just dots from the acne. I've probably used this (the scare care serum) for 2 months and I didn't see any results. Maybe the normal vitamin E works better? Which Colonial Dames product did you use for your scar?

  9. so bottom line, does colonia dames scar care with vitamin E not work??

    I have pretty mild acne scars. Most are light, although some are much darker. I want to get rid of my acne scars before i graduation in a month or atleast before college in 4 months.

    I've been applying lemon and tomato juices to my face and they seem to be working, but very slowly. I also heard potatoe juice works. Please HELP me. I really need it!! PLZ! Thx.
