Sorry to hear about your battle with acne. If you haven't seen a doctor or dermatologist, do try to see one as they can help to diagnose the cause of your acne and prescribe the right medication or skincare regime for you. Currently, I am using La Roche Posay Effaclar K to help prevent skin clogs and it seems to help.

For cleanser, you should try to find a gentle cleanser that does not irritate your skin. I like Ren's Rosa Centifolia or Mayblossom Cleansing Gel as these cleanse without stripping the skin. You can find Ren at Escentials in Tangs.

For toner, I like Paula's Choice CLEAR Targeted Acne Relief Toner, which contains salicylic acid. This can be ordered online in Singapore. Paula's Choice products get quite positive reviews by people dealing with acne, so perhaps you can check out her moisturisers as well.

Some of my friends have had good experiences with Vichy's anti-acne skincare, so you may wish to check that out as well. Do try to avoid products that contain alcohol, which is dehydrating, and many essential oils, as these can be potential irritants.

The girls at the Laduree counter told me of the new face products, and I'm soooo looking forward to trying them out. I've tired the Fluid Foundation and I really liked it. Have you had the opportunity to try any of the base makeup?

Not yet, I'm looking forward to checking out the counter when I visit Japan in September. Between this and Addiction, my wallet is going to suffer heavy damage!
