Dr Ci Labo : Skin check in Tokyo

October 15, 2018

Can I just say…it’s been ages since I blogged! I’m gonna make an effort to update my space more often and I’ve already planned a couple of posts to blog about so do stick around.

I recently paid a visit to my favourite city (any guesses?) for some sashimi, sushi and skincare with the amazing Dr.Ci:Labo (DCL) team. It was a very fruitful trip because I learnt a lot about my skin condition through the Skin Equation analysis, and how I can improve my skin’s health with some of DCL’s best-selling products! Before I go into the specifics, here’s a short video of my entire trip!

I also got some free time to roam around the ever so enchanting Tokyo!

Quick question! How many of you know your exact skin condition? Cos I always thought mine was quite good until…

Here are the results from my Skin Equation! 

I never knew my moisture levels were so low cos my skin looks pretty hydrated on the surface! Really need to work on moisturizing more! The skin around my eye area is still quite healthy but everywhere else is less than ideal. Thankfully, I was able to meet DCL brand founder Doctor Shirono, who explained which products suit my skin best!

Here’s a little background on DCL! DCL believes that the secret to achieving beautiful skin is by aiding its ability to heal. All DCL products are meticulously formulated with naturally-derived ingredients, providing your skin with just what it needs. 

The Skin Equation experience represents Dr.Ci:Labo’s innovative approach to skincare by assessing pairing cutting-edge dermatological mobile technology with professional beauty advisory services. Every individual’s skin has a unique mix of six dimensions that define both skin health and beauty – hydration, firmness, defence, renewal, brightening and radiance. The Skin Equation helps assess these six dimensions, creating a complete and harmonious skincare regimen that unique addresses each individual’s skin needs and goals. 

Here are some of the skincare products I’ve tried and tested for myself! 

P.S. I like the results I’m seeing!

Enrich-Lift 3D Serum

Enrich-Lift 3D Serum is Dr.Ci:Labo’s latest innovation, a dual-formula serum that combines two unique essences – Golden Enrich Lift Essence Cream and Deep Moisture Gel – to enhance the skin’s firmness, radiance and elasticity. The serum is packaged in a unique two-layer structure, encapsulating Golden Enrich Lift Essence Cream in a golden helix swirl and an outer layer of Deep Moisture Gel.

The airless pump keeps the dual-formula fresh and seamlessly combines both layers with a simple push, delivering an expertly blended serum that is lightweight and non-sticky for optimal skin absorption. 

Coming soon to Singapore! 

Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift EX

I use this during my travels especially on planes cos it’s able to give my skin the ultimate hydration it needs in harsh conditions. 

The gel was recently reformulated to include Permeable Fermented Collagen, a unique ingredient that combines 5 types of collagen to moisturize, smoothen and lift the skin.

UV Protect Spray 100

I also use this on the go over my make up to protect my skin against UV rays and environmental stress! I can’t emphasize how important sunblock is and daily usage goes a long way in keeping your skin looking less aged.

Throughout my entire stay in Tokyo (which was about a week), I infused DCL into my skincare regime and I really saw a difference – makeup application was much easier than before as my skin was less dry after using the Enrich Lift 3D Serum and Aqua Collagen Gel Enrich Lift! I also really like the light consistency of both products! 

Thank you DCL for aiding my skin and feeding me with good food!

Had a little me-time before heading to our farewell dinner!

It’s really important to understand your skin’s condition so you can start fixing the root of the problem, especially as you get older. The Skin Equation is available exclusively at the Dr.Ci:Labo flagship store at Ion Basement 3 free-of-charge, so make sure you get your skin checked soon (:

Till then,
Sophia Chong
