KO Skin Specialist ♡ (pt. II)
As you may know by now, I've been using Dr Ko Skincare products for a while now.
I've been seeing changes in the texture and quality for my skin and I am quite happy with it! I've been told that I am looking more radiant and relaxed.
The founder of Dr.Ko Skin Specialist – Dr Ko Chung Beng, spent 17 years in UK and obtained his specialist qualifications prior to his return to Malaysia in 1994. He headed the Dermatology Department of Seremban Hospital until 1997, then founded the KO Skin Specialist which has since been providing a comprehensive range of in-depth services from dermatology to cosmetic surgery.
When he first started out on his own in 1997, KO Skin Specialist was just a little clinic in Klang, located on the first floor of a shop lot. However the effectiveness of his prescriptions soon spread and today, that little clinic is now the headquarters for the 26 clinics of KO Skin Specialist centres across Malaysia!
KO Skin Specialist now has their very own formulation of skincare products which are formulated by their team of professionals to combat signs of aging, acne and other skin problems. The centres also offer the most complete range of laser therapy equipment in Asia. No longer just a Malaysian brand, KO Skin Specialist has a branch in Xiamen, China, and will be opening more branches in the future! How’s that for a Malaysian success story?
Dr.Ko Skin Specialist has four (4) skincare ranges namely – DermaxClinicare, KO Dermaceutical, KO Series, and eKo.
The range of products I received to try out. I have oily combination skin.
My skin is quite dull and pale at times, with slight blotches too.
So I was stoked to see the new changes in my skin!
Here goes :
Dermax Bio Firming Eye Essence 8 15ml
This gel textured eye essence with dipeptide-2, trehalose and hyaluronic acid hydrates my eyes while reducing fine lines. It's great for preventing wrinkles as women, when you've passed a certain age, to prevent lines from appearing.
All I have to do is apply the essence in a circular movement from outer corner towards inner corner and gently dab until fully absorbed.
KO Dermacare Perfect Brightening Cream 30g
Pricey but I love this! Combining mandelic acid, kojic acid and tranexamic acid to brighten the skin gently and also safely. It resolves pigmentation problems such as freckles, sun spots and melasma which I have due to the tanning I always do haha.
After cleansing and toning, I apply a tiny amount over pigmented areas and then continue with moisturizer. This wonder cream contains mandelic acid, kojic acid, tranexamic acid, chamomile extract.
KO Dermaceutical Perfect Wake-up Eye 28 30g
This is a cream base with a lamellar structure that mimics the composition of human skin. It smoothes out wrinkles, decreases dark circles and puffiness which is great for me as I stare and work from the computer almost 24/7, plus with all the late nights I have to deal with.
Just by gently applying it around my eye area using my index finger (best finger to use for eye creams as there's less pressure and you wont be dragging your skin). It can be used on age lines across forehead and neck area too! I use it twice daily.
It contains shea butter, sacha inchi oil, vitamin E, ash tree bark extract.
Ko Dermacare Vitality Purifying Essence I 30ml
This essence reduces skin imperfections while balances sebum production for a clear and refined complexion. It is great for acne-prone skin. And I only use this when neccessary.
The great thing about this essence is that it is alcohol free and it boosts the efficiency of your moisturiser plus controls the sebum production.
KO Dermaceutical Perfect Sago Hydrogel Mask 5pcs/box
This face mask is 100% natural bio-gel, free from chemicals, preservatives and toxicities! It removes dead skin cells and brightens skin tone, it helps with blackhead removals too. It's subtle enough that you can use daily, even after facial treatment or to help with sunburns!
Dermax Bio Perform Cleanser 1 120ml
This cleanser is great for normal & combination skin.
All you have to do is wet your face and neck, pump adequate amount of cleanser on palm and massage in circular motions, rinse with water thoroughly. I use it twice daily, day and night.
Dermax Bio Comedone Essence 12 30ml
This essence contains lemon fruit water, horse chestnut bark extract, licorice root extract, rosemary leaf extract and wild yam root extract which helps control sebum production.
Perform usual cleansing and toning, and then apply it on your T-zone and comedone affected areas, and then proceed with moisturizer.
KO Dermaceutical Perfect Radiance Toner 21 120ml
As mentioned before, this is an alcohol free toner formulated with plant extracts to sooth the skin while inhibiting melanin production. The long-term usage transforms my dull, tired skin into a brighter and luminous complexion! It also gives my skin an instant freshness at any time of the day and I can even set my make up with it! Or refresh my face any time of the day, as it is free from alcohol, colorant and preservatives!
This toner contains cactus pear extract, trehalose, centifolia rose extract, witch hazel extract, cucumber extract, orange flower water, raspberry fruit water, lavender essential oil.
Ko Dermacare Aqua Hydrating Moisturizer I 60g
This is an invigorating water-based moisturizer that drenches your skin in a veil of tranquility. Which I use after all the other essence and after the toner too. It calms skin irritation while replenishing moisture level which is great as it is for acne-prone and oily skin.
All you need to do is apply a pea sized amount over your face.
