The past 6 months is like a pause button in between my 12th and 13th rounds of skincare as I was having episodes of food poisoning hence multiple allergic reactions therefore I had to gather set of products that I can utilise to reduce the inflammation for the first few weeks after having reactions and several more gentle, acne-fighting and skin texture-improving products that I continued on using throughout the whole period of skin recovering. Soothing, skin barrier-repairing, hydrating, moisturising, nourishing; these are the keywords that I have been focusing on and only after 6 months, I dare to say that my skin is finally back to its original condition to the point that I finally get to use my Clarisonic brush again.
I'm planning to discuss more on the sensitive skin products that I've been using so do stay tuned for that but for now, I'm going to talk about these two products that were sent to me by allyoung Malaysia that I've incorporated into my skincare routine for the past month or so; I'd say these helped me in restoring the oil-water balance especially on my T-zone area and I no longer have breakouts at the same spots at the side of my nose area but before we jump right into the products, let me just talk a little bit on this Taiwan's aesthetic skincare, Swissvita.

How to Use:
Dispense appropriate amount of product onto hands, add water and work into lather. Massage gently onto wet face, focus on the T-zone if necessary. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.
Use it daily; morning and night.
Pour an appropriate amount on cotton pad or palm, gently pat it on your face until fully absorbed. Use it daily; morning and night.
This toner has lightweight consistency and I've been using this toner as first step after cleansing step in my morning skincare routine and it does help to inhibit sebum overproduction and prevent blemishes at the same spot at both side of my nose area. It doesn't really has a scent to it; maybe a faint tea tree oil scent but I hardly noticed it. Although some of you might consider on using this toner alone for your whole facial area, I still find this toner a bit lacking in terms of moisture so I usually apply this toner just on my T-zone area and opting for more moisturising toner for my drier U-zone area.
As you can see, the box is simply designed; I'd take it as the brand intends to focus more on the product itself, them being their ultimate acne solution skincare products. Do note that these products are to be used within 6 months after opening.
There's English product descriptions at the back and side of the boxes which are nice considering the brand is originating from Taiwan.
The Expiry dates are at the bottom of the box and on the bottle and aluminium tube itself which is something I'd appreciate as I no longer hoard products packaging.
Although I don't really like the opening of the aluminium tube of the facial cleanser that much; looks like toothpaste IMHO but I'm gonna look past it as the consistency of the cleanser is creamy so it's still easy to dispense it.
The cap for the toner is considered nice as the product doesn't spill or anything. The hole isn't too big either so it's easy to control the amount of the toner itself.
I have got to say that it's been a long time since I have any product with lots of astringent in it as for the past 2 years, I'm all about hydrating, moisturising products as part of my anti-aging skincare routine but with the allergic reactions I was having that made my skin went crazy with dryness which resulted in super oily T-zone, rough flaky texture and some redness, I'm glad that I got to try these gentle, non-drying (as I would expect from lots of acne-related skincare products) and blemish-preventing products from Swissvita.
As of end of this month of November, I'm fully back to my normal to oily skin condition; now focusing more on reducing dark spots and pigmentation caused but above all, I'm indulging myself more in moisturising products as I'm about to venture in exfoliating acid toner.
Thank you so much to allyoung Malaysia and Swissvita Malaysia for sending these products to me at such a perfect timing!
