DRX Product Review

Hi guys sorry for the delay on the blogpost, I wanted to wait till my next appointment to get the price list of all the items before I blogged about them.
So, I recently went back for my 3rd consultation and was prescribed 3 new products to lighten my scars.Will be reviewing them separately together with my thoughts on my 3rd month journey.

DRX Clinic is located at,
302 Orchard Road, 16th Floor
Tong Building (next to Paragon Shopping Centre)
Singapore 238862

Outside Tong Building, you will be able to see an ice cream cart and an army of pigeons at the front. lol
On the ground floor of Tong Building, you will be able to spot a Rolex boutique.

To fix an appointment with them you can contact them at, 
Tel : (65) – 6733 1555
Fax (65) – 6733 2983

Mon to Fri : 10am to 8pm | Sat : 10am to 5pm
Closed on Sun & PH

There is a $50 consultation charge per visit. However, when mentioned a certain blogger name while booking an appointment, you will be able to waive off 1-3 times consultation chargers. I managed to waive off 3 consultation charges and saved $150! 

So let's move on to the review!

Pictures below will include a close up on the products and also the price of it.( Prices are inclusive of GST)

Foaming Cleanser, $42.80
If you have sensitive lips, you do have to be careful around your mouth area. My lips was kinda irritated by it.

Milk Cleanser, $48.15
I would recommend using an oil cleanser to deep cleanse your skin instead of using a milk cleanser. During the day, oil,dirt and make up gets clogged in your pores. Therefore using an oil cleanser will not only reach deeper into your pores but prevent clogged pores as well :)

Toner, $42.80
This toner acts as a double cleanse and also a gentle exfoliant. However I still need to use a separate scrub every week to thoroughly exfoliate my skin. 

Comedone Formula, $78.11
As you can seen I'm almost out of my CF. The colour of the product is actually yellowish in colour and it has a weird chinese herbal scent to it. I usually get blackheads around my nose and will monitor if there are any improvements.

Max C, $169.06
Woa, I did not know that this was so pricey till I looked up the pricing on it. I suppose if this helps in anti-aging and collagen production it is worth the splurge right? However, I will not really see the effectiveness of it till I'm older. Oh well, will continue to use it around my eye area as well to see if it helps with the appearance of fine lines.

Blemish Formula, $74.90
Some part of my skin dried out from this, however this really does the job. I'm only using this in the day now.

Acne Spot Lotion, $26.50
If I do notice that a pimple is starting to develop, I'll use this and the next morning the pimple has either flattened or, it has started to dried out. This product really shortens the development process of pimples! For bigger pimples, usually it would take more than a week for it to recover but now, it only takes around 3 days! 

Non-Tinted Sunscreen, $62.06
As mentioned in the video, the Non-Tinted Sunscreen is suited for sensitive skin as it is a physcial sunscreen. With the main ingredients consisting of Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide.
The cons of it would be, it is a thicker consistency and often leaves a white cast on the face. 

The other sunscreen available in the market is known as chemical sunscreen. It is usually colourless and odourless. However, chemical filters tend to be more irritating to the skin and some may cause skin allergies as well.
However there are many controversies about physical and chemical sunscreens, questioning if they actually do protect the skin against harmful rays or does it in fact worsen it.That, I will not touch on today's topic. But if you are interested to know more, feel free to google it :)

Anti-Blemish Mask, $59.92
For the price that I'm paying for, I guess I will not be repurchasing this mask as I do not feel that it does any additional improvements to my skin. 

My Final thoughts on the products compared to my previous skincare line, Dermalogica, at Aster Spring.

Pricing: Both skincare lines are priced around the same, however some DRX products are slightly cheaper.

Effectiveness: I've seen a difference in 2 weeks while previously my skin condition was not cured even while receiving treatment.

Professionalism: DRX Clinic has certified skin doctors with experiences and knowledge. However, Aster Spring only has beauty consultants and may not have received the relevant education  and when analysing my skin, they may give inaccurate information. ( As mentioned in my previous video, according to them I had sensitive skin)

I will continue to use DRX products and will update on my visits every month. However I'm not too sure if I have to visit Dr Angela in the long run as I feel that my skin has stabilized. Have booked an appointment next Monday for facial at DRX and I'm really excited to try it out! Will keep you guys posted as well :)

Thank you for reading! Till next time xoxo
