So last month, I was invited to PHYSIOGEL blogger gathering. Have you ever heard about PHYSIOGEL brand before? I was actually never heard about this brand, but I remember passing through some drugstores and saw this product.
After being invited, of course I'm trying to find out by myself and it turns out that PHYSIOGEL is famous among dermatologist and often prescribed for those who experience dry, sensitive skin.
There were also some fellow beauty bloggers there! So, the gathering is to educate us as bloggers about the features and benefits of PHYSIOGEL. The talkshow was quite informative and I learnt a lot about skin from it.
Besides talkshow, bloggers can also do skin check. My skin's moisture level (back of my hand) was 35.5% and after using PHYSIOGEL lotion, my moisture level arose to 65.6%!!! Wow!
Anyway, for your information, the normal moisture level should be at least 40%. So if you have less than 40% of moisture, you'd better take care of it!
After the event, I brought home two products from PHYSIOGEL: PHYSIOGEL Cleanser and PHYSIOGEL Lotion. So, let's review!
PHYSIOGEL Cleanser Review
PHYSIOGEL Cleanser is a hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic soap-free cleanser that cleanses, soothes and softens without drying the skin. Its non-greasy formula does not contain animal fats, providing a gentle cleansing and maintenance of the skin's natural pH balance.
PHYSIOGEL Cleanser is a low-foam formula that cleanses thoroughly with or without water.
This cleanser can be applied for face and body. I love the multifunction feature, LOL. All-in-one always win my heart.
Moreover, it is soap-free, non-comedogenic (won't clog our pores), suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones, and it can be used for babies (hello, mommies).
Ah, one more thing: it can be used both with and without water! See how it makes my (lazy) life so easy?
The texture itself is like gels and runny. It has no scent at all which I like (because I have sensitive nose).
Directions of Use
With water: Apply a liberal amount of PHYSIOGEL Cleanser to skin. Massage gently in a circular motion. Rinse with water.
Without water (for delicate skin): Apply a liberal amount of PHYSIOGEL Cleanser to skin. Massage gently in a circular motion. Remove excess with a soft tissue or cotton wool.
I actually always use it with water. I apply it to several spots and massage my whole face gently.
Then in the end rinse it with water.
I know that it has no brightening function, but it turns out every time I wash my face with this cleanser, my face is brighter. Maybe because it completely cleanse my face deep into pores! So this cleanser is very recommended.
I myself has combination skin. My skin is not that sensitive, but I have acne prone skin though. So far, since the formula is so gentle and not harsh, I can see small improvement on my face as I don't breakout as much as it usually does.
PHYSIOGEL Lotion Review
PHYSIOGEL Lotion is a hypoallergenic, moisturising lotion that provides physiological lipids in the Derma Membrane Structure (DMS) - a structure similar to the skin, hence, revitalising dry skin.
Physiological lipids are natural and essential components of normal healthy skin. And yes, PHYSIOGEL Lotion comes with physiological lipids to protect and restore healthy skin.
