On April 19th 09, I was invited over to the Imedeen Beautique at Takashimaya for an Imedeen event where several other female bloggers and myself were selected to give Imedeen a go for 3 months. Details about that can be found HERE.
3 months later on the 18th of July 09, we went back for an update, to do another dema-scan to see the condition of our skin and if it has improved from our initial scan.
My results came out quite obvious *Don't know why I look so pale & fair in this picture though - perhaps it was the lighting. I don't use face powder but why do I look like I'm glowing* anyway... I can feel the difference too! Results were not obvious in the first month so thus they say you have to do a 90 day cycle to really see results and results I did see!
If scientific proof was necessary, my scan *left* was my previous one in April.. the red specs showing the amount of collagen and moisture I had in my skin. Pretty bad! And my scan *right* was what I did last week! Alot of difference eh?
Overall, I began to notice significant differences once the second month came about.. I forgot about my nightly moisturiser one evening and a couple of days after too but realised at the end of that week that I didn't even need my nightly moisturiser anymore!
My forehead cleared up TREMENDOUSLY! It has been clear n smooth without much of a breakout since I've started the Imedeen cycle! Elbows, knees and heels also have soften... my general appearance of skin on my arms & legs also have taken on a different kind of texture.. somewhat of a slightly more velvety feel...
I don't see much against the crows feet or wrinkles that I have but my face doesn't feel tight and stretched or even overly oily. Generally feels quite balanced. And the best part was this realisation which came to me one night when my girlfriend Shelly highlighted it to me... *Okay.. so girl talk here... *
I mentioned that my boobs seemed to look a little more perkier lately and was wondering if it was the chest/shoulder exercises that I have been doing that helped to pump up the muscle in the area to make it so. And she mentioned that maybe it could be the effects of the collagen that Imedeen helped to boost my skin tone.. and as women who have had children, been pregnant, breastfed or just of old age with big breasts like me - Saggy boobs are definitely a concern.
Those few millimetres of lift can make such a difference between a sad looking chest and a perky and cheerful looking one... so with that realisation.. it was all so worth it just for this reason alone.
With this checkup... Maureen Law, lady boss of Imedeen, graciously provided us with another 1 month supply of Imedeen and I will continue this till it is completed. I will really miss taking Imedeen seeing the kind of results that it has shown so far and perhaps I would consider it personally to make it a regular & worthwhile investment for my skin once this is cycle is over in August.
