Clearer Skin In Two Weeks With New Eucerin ProACNE Soution A.I. Clearing Treatment

I always had acne problems since I was a teenager and even until today, I have breakouts once in a while. I have tried using different types of products but these products have left me with dryer and more irritated skin. Recently, I was given the opportunity to try the new and improved Eucerin ProACNE Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment and I could see a tremendous difference in just 14 days.

I use this at night after thoroughly cleansing my face. I applied a small pea size amount and massaged it on my face. On day 1 when I tried this, I could feel some stinging pain on my acnes for a few seconds. After day 1, there was no more stinging pain whenever I applied this on my face. Here are 2 photos of me on Day 1.

There were a few new acnes on my right jaw line.

A big new acne on my left fore head and also on the bottom of my left side of my lips.

Eucerin ProACNE Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment nourishes and moisturizes skin while clearing up breakouts in a gentle way. This product is tested to effectively unclog pores, reduce blemishes and protect skin against moisture loss. I really liked this product because my skin does not feel dry and I was satisfied with the results after 14 days usage. My skin appearance has improved and the dark post-acne marks were reduced. 

Day 14 of usage - acne flatten but still have slight visible acne scars on my right jaw line. 

Formulated with potent active ingredients, Eucerin ProACNE Solution A.I. Clearing Treatment reduces comedonal acne in only two weeks without drying out skin. Its formula soothes irritation for smooth and healthy skin with:

  • Licochalcone A,  a highly effective anti-inflammatory to soothe irritations and helps reduce redness;
  • Dexpanthenol, derived from vitamin B5, which is a powerful humectant that binds water to the skin, helping to make skin more resilient and less sensitive to environmental triggers.

If you have acne problems, you should try this new and improved moisturizer for acne prone skin and take up the 14 days acne clear challenge in 2 simple steps.

1. Snap a photo of your skin on Day 1 and again on Day 14 after 14 days of usage.

My Scaling and Polishing Experience at Dentessence Dental Clinic

Many people including me are very afraid to visit the dentist because we are worried of the pain from extraction of teeth or filling of teeth. Many people also worry about the high cost seeing the dentist. Some people would rather queue for 1 to 2 hours at the government clinic to get cheap dental treatments. However, at government clinics, you will not be able to do scaling or polishing of teeth and when you go for normal check up, they can only do 1 specific treatment each time. For example, if you have 3 teeth which needs filling, you will need to visit them three times. 

Recently I visited Dentessence Dental Clinic which is located at Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya for teeth scaling and polishing because I have not done these procedures for many years and have lots of plaque build up on my teeth. Parking here was not easy to find but I was lucky to find one in front of the dental clinic. If you have problem finding parking, you can park at the multi-storey car park behind the clinic.

When I entered Dentessence Dental Clinic, I was greeted by the friendly staff. The waiting area was comfortable and clean.

Waiting area

Dr. Ahbirami Supramaniam greeted me and chatted with me. She was very friendly and nice. She did a teeth check up and noticed that my left front tooth was thinning. She asked if I grind my teeth during my sleep. I was not sure about this until I asked my husband who confirmed I do grind my teeth. Teeth guard can be used but it might not be suitable for everyone who grinds their teeth. This is because some people have sleep apnea which causes difficulty in breathing. These people need to grind their teeth to push their jaw forward allowing air for them to breathe. Customized teeth guard is suitable for people without sleep apnea.

Scaling process

Dr. Ahbirami was very gentle when she did the scaling and polishing of my teeth. She noticed that I had more plaque on my left side of my teeth and she knew I use my right side of my teeth to chew my food more often. She said chewing food is a natural cleaning process. Now I will try to remember to use both sides of my teeth to chew food. The scaling process took about 15 to 20 minutes. 

Here's a video of my scaling experience.

After the scaling process, she did my teeth polishing using some mint gel. This was very fast and it took about 5 minutes. After I rinsed my mouth and saw my cleaner teeth, I was satisfied. 

Teeth polishing process

Here's a video of my teeth polishing process.

Happy to get my teeth scaling and polishing done after so many years. It is recommended to visit the dentist twice a year but I have not been doing that. It is also recommended to use soft toothbrush instead of the medium or hard toothbrush so that the brush would not hurt our gums. 

I was here with my five year old son and the dentist did a check up for him too. She later gave him some stickers which made him very happy. My son told me he is not afraid of seeing the dentist and I am glad he liked his first dental checkup. Thank you Dr. Ahbirami.

If you are staying in Klang Valley and want to visit a dentist, you can make an appointment with Dr. Ahbirami. You can visit their FACEBOOK or INSTAGRAM for more information.

Aladdin and the Magic Lamp Show at Resorts World Genting

A whole new world will be brought to life as the Aladdin and The Magic Lamp production takes over the Genting International Showroom stage at Resorts World Genting this month. Combining a live cast with state-of-the-art 3D holographic projections, the production by China’s DT Kids Theatre will amaze and astound audiences with a spectacular show of the classic Arabian Nights tale of a poor tailor’s apprentice who discovers a magic lamp and the genie contained inside. 

There are also interactions with audiences such as asking the hidden number using mathematical solutions to unlock the door to the hidden treasures. Children love these interactions very much. A funny one was Aladdin asking audiences to find his stinking socks where he wanted to hide the magic lamp.

With its expertise in crafting cutting-edge technological stage marvels, China’s DT Kids Theatre (part of the larger DT Kids multimedia group) has the pedigree to enrapture children between the ages of 4 to 12. The troupe focuses on bringing classic fairy tales to animated glory, with popular and long-running productions such as Finding The Wizard of Oz, Snow White, Pinnochio and Adventures of the Monkey King: The Golden Hooped Rod, which was staged in Resorts World Genting last year. 

Aladdin and The Magic Lamp was developed by DT Kids Theatre in 2015, premiering at the Shanghai Zendai Himalayas Art Centre. Produced by DT Kids Theatre chief director Zhang Yi and choreographed by Mic Thompson, a Disney dance production veteran that has shared the stage with Michael Jackson and Jennifer Lopez, the show is a visual tour de force. Zhao Zi Fu, actor and host and Yin Shi, with multiple musicals under her belt front the cast as Aladdin and Jasmine, respectively. Actors are aided by 3D projections that accompany their actions, from Aladdin hurtling away from a giant rolling fire boulder to the evil magician summoning colossal spears of sand to bringing the genie to wise-cracking life. Set to a script by screenwriter Yin Heng and music by Wang Lingyun, the 65-minute English-language with Chinese subtitles production is one that must be seen in person to fully appreciate. 

Aladdin and The Magic Lamp begins its run at Genting International Showroom on March 9, 2018, playing until 25 March, 2018. The show plays daily at 8.30pm Monday to Saturday, with a 4pm matinee show on Saturdays. On Sundays, there is a single 5pm showing, with an additional 2pm show on March 11, 2018 only. Tickets are priced at RM86 (PS1), RM116 (PS2) and RM156 (VIP), with a 10% discount applicable for Genting Rewards Members. An additional processing fee of RM4 applies to all ticket purchases.

For this coming school holidays, it would be great to plan a trip to Resorts World Genting because there are lots of exciting things and new attractions for children and adults. You can read more about these new attractions from my previous 2 posts : Ripley's Believe It or Not and Jurassic Research Center and Alive Museum, Zombie Outbreak and The Play TIme Video Games Park

A very special experience, Back to Jurassic will be held at Level 1 of Sky Atrium from 9 March to 1 April with an animatronic dinosaur and huge dinosaur display, dino kiddie ride and even a Human Raptor cosplay lined up specially for the March school holidays. Children can also have a superb time colouring with the egg painting activities and dinosaur shirt colouring activities. I brought my parents and children for 2 days 1 night visit to see the new attractions here and everyone enjoyed themselves very much.
