How I wished Physiogel could also do that for my face!
Yes, my poor, terrible face! I've been suffering a horrible case of acne since middle of last year and I'm having it treated. But while my acne is slowly but surely going away, the treatment has been harsh on my face, leaving my skin raw, flaky, stinging and red. My face has just been a painful part of me! Check out these photos:
|Pus-filled pimples scattered all over my cheeks.|
|Not visible in these photos but my skin was flaking off all over my face, especially around my nose.|
I'm so brave huhu. I'm so panget!
Enter Physiogel Face Calming Relief cream—Physiogel’s first entry into face care. Physiogel knew I was already a fan of their body lotion so they asked if I was willing to give their new face products a try. To be honest, I was reluctant. My face was already a painful mess. I was afraid of using a new product, especially when I saw that it was formulated for dry and sensitive skin. My skin was oily! But Physiogel assured me that their product will still be good for me. So, okay, I gave it a try.
I'm so happy I did!!!

Upon first application, my face immediately felt soothed, calmed, comforted. It no longer felt raw and painful. With each use, the redness faded, the flaking skin was smoothed away, the pimples—yes, my pimples!—were lessened. I know I'm undergoing acne treatment but I really believe its efficacy was made faster and more effective by Physiogel Face Calming Relief cream.
I've been doing this acne treatment since November and I already knew that my skin flares up again a week or two after my facials. It was an ongoing thing, you know? I had to keep coming back to the clinic to manage the acne. But when I started using Physiogel Face Calming Relief cream, there were no more flare ups!!! Not only did my pimples die off faster, no pimples reappeared!
Nakakaiyak siya sa sobrang saya ko. Grabe lang!
Anyway, I'm still pimply but here's a side-by-side comparison with Day 1 so you can see that there's been a visible improvement:
|Dry patches gone. Pimples lessened.|
|Flakiness on cheeks and around corners of eyes and nose gone.|
|Pimples drying up.|
I had to watermark these pics because I didn't want other brands to use them!
I'm so happy! I'll give you an update in a few days so you can see what two weeks of Physiogel Face Calming Relief cream has done to my face. So exciting!
The Calming Relief Face Cream comes in two formulations. I used the regular for my 14-day challenge, but for those with extra dry skin, I recommend you try out the rich cream. The regular variant is Php 800 while the rich variant is Php 850. The Physiogel Calming Relief range is available at Mercury Drug and Watsons.
