Inspired by nature, perfected by science: Watsons' Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant

10 June 2013

I can lie to myself all I want, but it's true that I have reached the point when I have to start using anti-aging products. Prevention is better than cure, knowing is winning half the battle, blah blah blah, so I just have to suck it in and beef up my skin care routine.

One of the perks of my job is getting access to new releases in the market and last week, I got my hands on the Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant line by Watsons. I am excited to try this because I really loved the Pure Beauty UV White Sun Protection Compact I got two years ago. Too bad that when I hit the pan and tried to replenish my stash, I couldn't find it anywhere anymore! I hope that won't be the case for this new line of skin care products when I use them and find that they're actually good for me.

Without further ado, let me present to you Watsons' Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant line (that's quite a mouthful, huh?):

Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant
Exfoliating Gel, 2-in-1 Foam Cleanser, Toner, Serum, and Night Cream
Everyone everywhere has labored to find the elusive Fountain of Youth, and many have remained unsuccessful, until now. In their quest for that healthy vibrant look, Watsons, a leading retailer of cosmetics and related beauty solutions, recognizes the need for an answer to skin aging. Pomegranate Antioxidant, the newest addition to Pure Beauty, draws on the power of science and nature to halt the process right in its tracks. Dermatologically tested, the Pomegranate Antioxidant range suits all skin types, conveying youthful radiance with every bottle.
This line boasts of its "hero" ingredients Radicare (powerful antioxidant from Switzerland that delivers antioxidation and anti-ageing properties by neutralizing and preventing free radicals), Pomegranate (powerful antioxidant from South Korea that has collagen reserves that reduce wrinkles, make skin supple, and enable skin to soak up essential moisturizers and help skin to retain moisture), and natural EcoCert ingredients sourced globally like organic Hamamelis water, organic apricot kernel oil, organic sunflower oil, and organic lemon balm water. It also has Bulgarian rose water that has an uplifting scent, gently cleanses and tones for all skin types, and provides calming effect in acne and sunburns.

Everyone's familiar with the three basic steps of skin care which are Cleanse, Tone, and Moisturize. Here are the products from the Pure Beauty Pomegranate Antioxidant line that you can use for each step:

Step 1 - CLEANSE
Pomegranate Antioxidant 2-in-1 Foam Cleanser
SRP: P249
It functions as a cleanser and a quick mask; it removes pore-clogging impurities and detoxifies irritants while purifying and nourishing your skin.

As a daily cleanser: Day and night, apply a small amount to face with wet fingertips, gently massage using circular movement, then rinse off thoroughly with warm water.
As a purifying mask: Apply a thin layer evenly over entire face (avoid lip and eye area), wait for 5 minutes and rinse off thoroughly with warm water. Use 2-3 times a week.

Pomegranate Antioxidant Exfoliating Gel
SRP: P489
It provides skin exfoliation with visible brightening effects. Its unique formulation provides powerful yet sensitive and gentle exfoliation that smoothens, revives, and brightens the skin without drying it out.

Use appropriate amount and carefully massage onto the face to remove dead skin cells. Rinse off with warm water thoroughly. Use 1-2 times a week.

Step 2 - TONE
Pomegranate Antioxidant Toner
SRP: P349
Its unique blend of active natural ingredients provides you with nature’s concentrated powers of renewal to brighten and tighten your skin, leaving it soft and radiant, day after day.

Use day and night after Pomegranate Antioxidant 2-in-1 Foam Cleanser. Apply a small amount to cotton pad and gently smooth over the entire face.

Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum
SRP: P399
Its concentrated formula stimulates anti-ageing and anti-oxidation effects while simultaneously providing nutritional and brightening effects.

Use day and night on cleansed face after Pomegranate Anti-oxidant Toner. Apply a small amount and massage onto entire face and down to the neck area.

Pomegranate Antioxidant Night Cream
SRP: P399
Its nutrient rich formula activates your skin cells to repair, renew, and recharge as you sleep.

Use night time on cleansed and toned face, after Pomegranate Anti-oxidant Serum. Apply an adequate amount onto entire face and massage gently into skin.

The blurb says this line is ideal for all skin types and best suits young customers striving for healthy and radiant skin and with higher risk of premature aging (for example, people living in big cities with pollution problems or those with stressful jobs). Hmm, looks like something for me, then. ;)

I have started using everything last night and I'm crossing my fingers they don't break me out. I will share my "findings" after a couple of weeks so watch out for that! In the meantime, you can visit Watsons stores or SM Beauty branches to check this line out. Have a great week ahead, everyone, and don't forget to check out my Palette Pursuit giveaway!
