My skincare Journey with The DRx clinic

 Have you heard of The DRx clinic? When I was 16, I started breaking out.. not really that bad but there are parts where my acne can't stop breaking out especially my forehead and right cheek!!!! I got really frustrated, I have seen like 2 different clinics to solved this issues, but apparently my main issues were clogged pores and inflamed acne! Both of these clinic didn't solved 50% of my acne however the products doesn't really suit my face and causes my face to clogged even more pores, I really really started worrying and hate myself whenever I see the mirror! Who doesn't want to own a flawless skin!?!?! I'm not blessed with flawless skin which I admit it.

I have yet gone for second consultations, which means I will be updating more about my skins conditions with The DRx clinic! Whatever I have a post here regarding on my journey with them will all be in the real experience and non-biased review. Fret not because my whole review will be honest. So, this afternoon I had an appointment at 12 pm with Dr Tan Huiyan and here's a picture we took together! :D

(if you're wondering why my face seems to be flawless it's all because of soft skin mode, and I look completely crap here, but it's ok.. LOL)

Yup, this is Dr Hui Yan! Glad to meet her, she's really friendly!!! Anyway for those would like to know about Dr Tan Hui Yan,  here it is. "she graduated with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree and subsequently attained her Masters of Medicine in Family Medicine from the National University of Singapore. She is a firm believer that treatment should be tailored to suit each individual patient, and that early prevention coupled with a customized maintenance regime is the key to healthy glowing skin. Always dedicated to providing the best for her patients, she continues to update herself by attending numerous international conferences and workshops. Outside of work, she is an avid reader, traveller and animal lover. She cherishes the time spent with her loved ones and can often be found enjoying nature walks over the weekends." (drxclinic) 

Let's move on with this update, so Dr. Hui Yan has customized the skincare regime for me! Yup, so let me bring you to have a mini tour around in DRx clinic! :)
You can see how clean, simple and classy setting once you enter the clinic! I really love how the interior design settings, it really gives customers a clean aesthetic clinic/lab view.
Greetings to you from the counter friendly nurses and that's where you'll be registering your own particulars!

You can see the another counter over there, that's where you'll be collecting your products and make your payment! ^^

Around 2mins of waiting, they called up my name and off I go to meet Dr Hui Yan for the first time!
While waiting for Dr Hui Yan to diagnosed my skin conditions, its quite sad because my face had gone worst back, yes I recently started breaking out REAL CRAZY!!!!! I don't know why but probably because I didn't watch my diet upon what Joycelyn said and yes, I realized that I have  intake lots of  dairy products. *Do try avoid Dairy products because they causes acne*  So Dr Hui Yan briefed about my current skin conditions and decided to put me in the same skincare regime from what Dr Angela prescribed me as mentioned earlier on since there's no bad side effects.

The consultations took about less than 15mins? 
While waiting for my products to be ready, snapping away and looking at the brochures...

Besides the payment counter, there's lots of brochures for you to read while waiting! Get to know more about their treatments and DRx! (behind the frills curtain, it is an area for photo taking of your skin conditions as to keep track the improvement when you come for second consultations)

Sleek and clean design of their makeup area, so for ladies who are insecure to leave the clinic with bare face, DRx has a room just for makeup!!! So don't worry!

Waiting area for further treatments!
Their new extension area for more treatments!!! I was told that last time they do not have this extension area.

Heading over to their Medispa, just next beside the DRx clinic
When you first step in the Medispa area, that's how it looks! 
After waiting at the counter, customers will be brought to their own spa treatments room!

After done touring, went back to the next door to collect my products! :D 
All the products I've received today (adding on one foaming cleanser)

The prices are placed at the right-hand side of the payment counter, all prices of the products will include 7% of GST. I will do an explanation of my products below!

The total products I have received! The prices I will state accordingly.

Foaming cleanser 
Just pour a small 10cents size of the foaming cleanser and its more than enough for my whole face! I love how the cleanser smell!!! This cleanser is a hydrating cleanser for all skin types that contains optimal concentrations of Marine Algae extracts that gently exfoliates for a soothing and refreshing wash and also natural cleansing and toning, balancing the pH level of the skin! 

The toner is an alcohol-free fluid with Glycolic and Salicylic acid (kill pimple) to enhance the cleansing process, it contains Allantoin which helps restore the moisture to the skin and leaving the skin feeling revitalized and supple. Toner is really important because it DOUBLE CLEANSE your face! (prime stage)

Comedone Formula
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT! Miracle product, I remember when I first used it, I can really tell the difference!!! Like what I've mentioned earlier, one of my concerns was black and whiteheads but with this, 90% of my problems are solved and the remaining dirt trapped inside needs to be extract out! This product is award winning product for reducing appearance of comedones. It contains botanical extracts which work to reduce the appearance of comedones.

Blemish Formula
Another product I'm loving it! Blemish formula helps to reduce the occurrence of break-outs, it is an all-natural formulations to control and reduce the occurrence of blemishes and break-outs without any adverse side effects. After using, my nose and forehead is less oily. YES I have oily T-zone.... :-( and yes my acne did reduced, I can see the difference from my first consultation photos!

Lipsomal sunscreen (SPF 30+)
Do you know that before leaving house, it is REALLY REALLY important to put on sunscreen? As to protect yourself from harmful UV rays! You can never miss this step in your morning skincare regime! This sunscreen is an advanced water and sweat resistant formulation made from essential ingredients. Protection against harmful UVA I, UVA II/ UVB exposure. With this, I need not worry about getting tan and having my skins fighting against the harmful UV rays! :D

Last but not least, the one that cures your angry pimples
Blemish Gel
I remember my first consultation, they prescribed me Acne Spot Lotion so apparently they ran out of ASL and replaced Blemish Gel for the cure of my Acne! So go away you angry pimples! It's my first time trying out this and I will not write any review for this yet, do stay tune for the next update on my third consultations with DRx!

Oh wait... present to you, my Anti-Blemish Masks 
I love masks!!!! The refreshing feeling after putting it on. This is an intensive corrective masks for oily, congested and blemish-prone skin, what it does? It removes the excess oil, exfoliate and cleanses pores, clears comedones and helps to control further break-outs and blemishes! After using, I honestly felt that it did lighten my blemishes. ;)

(I do not know how much is my pills but to my assumptions, it cost approx 400-500 for all my products? For those who wants to know the average range of the price, actually it all depends on your skin conditions!)

So far so good using their products and taking the pill! Don't worry, I will keep track and take a photo of my current skin conditions (bad skin *cries*) and after using the products for a month. Do stay tune for my next update with DRx after Christmas! Can't wait to achieve flawless skin upon looking at how good is Dr Hui Yan skin condition!!!! *envy* 

A big THANK YOU to DRx for the miracle products! 
Like I said, my whole review and journey with DRx will be honest and justified with results. :)
