Helloooo! Finally reviewing the Papulex range which I’ve been using for the past 2 – 3 months. This is not a sponsored post (I paid for these products) and I’m only sharing them cause these are great products which I feel you should know about!
Papulex was recommended to me by Dr Kan from Trinity Medical and I’m so glad she did!
If you’re not aware, I suffer from Rosacea (read here). It has gotten much better under the care of my doctors at Trinity Medical. When I got started on these products, I have sensitive, dehydrated skin with breakouts.
My cleanser for the past few years have been Bioderma (a wipe off, non-rinse cleanser) because it’s the only thing that does not irritate or dehydrate my skin. But was wiping with micellar water really clean enough? It wasn’t. My breakouts kept recurring, and I noticed especially so after wearing bb cream/foundation.
Dr Kan put me on two papulex products:
1) Papulex Moussant Soap Free Cleansing Gel 150ml
2) Papulex Oil-Free cream 40ml
Papulex Moussant Soap Free Cleansing Gel 150ml
- Helps reduce imperfections while cleansing the skin gently with its soap-free formula
- Helps reduce the appearance of blemishes while keeping skin feeling smooth and fresh
- Gentle and ideal for daily acne care for sensitive skin
This cleanser comes in a light green colour, and it’s texture is rich and thick. Not sure why it’s a soap free cleanser when it still foams up though. I squeeze a little from the packaging and lather it up in my palms before massaging it onto my skin for a good 1-2 minutes.
I was really apprehensive about using a facial foam for the first time in like years, all cause previous experiences with facial foams leave my skin feeling dry, taut and peeling. BUT, this cleanser does not!
And that’s something worth mentioning coming from someone who has really sensitive and dehydrated skin. My skin feels more supple after cleansing and it’s not so red after cleansing anymore.
Papulex Oil-Free cream 40ml
I have never loved moisturisers. In fact, I only used to put moisturiser on when my skin is peeling cause…. any time I put it on, they break me out!
When I squeezed some moisturiser out of the tub, I was shocked to see that it’s a thick white cream. I thought “Die already lah, confirm breakout after using one” but was suprised yet again when applying that it has a really light consistency. It does not feel oily AT ALL despite looking thick and oily. It’s really an oil-free cream that suits my dehydrated skin, by adding moisture and not oil.
A little goes a long way and a tube will last me about two months with everyday use.
The combination of these two products works awesomely together, with the cleanser moisturising and deep-cleansing my skin, while the oil-free cream delivers moisture without the oiliness that may cause breakouts.
My skin has never looked better in years and as their tagline says “Love your skin again”, I’m happy to see my skin improving.
I believe in having a good routine at home. It’s much more effective than using the wrong products everyday and going for treatment (like facials / lasers) every month. Will keep on using these and hopefully, see a difference in a few more months :)
If you’re keen, I got my Papulex products at Trinity Medical.
