[REVIEW] SecretKey Prestige Ampoule

Hi guys!
Miss my rant? - I bet you don't..haha XD

Since I don't have anything to do although I'm in my exam month, but since I just finished my Mandarin paper this morning, I felt I want to do a new post. Plus, the next paper will be on next week's Friday ( how long is that?)

Talking about the previous post, have you read it? Sorry if it kinds of freak you out. I was freaking out when I saw the pictures all is fine now, no worries. That happens on February when I took the treatment :D

You know how much I was like a skincare freak since the end of last year? I'm kind of strive for a better skin instead of hiding it under my make up. But as much as I want a clear skin, there's a limit to that. I can't erase enough my past acne scars - the hole-like one. 

Anyway, onto the review. This serum was bought in January or February - I don't remember because it was too long and I have finished it for sometime. 

Can't get enough with the gold pattern :D

See how runny it is?

My skincare feels empty without serum or ampoule because I much preferred them more than cream because most creams are too thick or too moisturising for my skin. That'll eventually breaks me out no matter how good or expensive the cream is.

So I saw this serum was selling cheap on so I bought it alongside the cream. To think that previously I thought these won't work unless I used the cream as well. It proved that I'm wrong because the cream don't work for me at all. That will be reviewed later.

Since the cream doesn't work for me, I just used this ampoule alone and omg, it really works on controlling my redness from my active pimples. Sometimes, not all active pimples are bumpy, they're just red for no reason. I have no picture to prove but I really do love the effects of this ampoule on me.

It is not sticky, it's very light and absorbs really fast. Just like a lot of snail essence, the texture is a bit gooey but not that much, it is almost unnoticeable. It is just to show that the ampoule is really from snail mucus extract.

This ampoule is dual functional product. It claims that it will give whitening and wrinkle improvement. Honestly said, from all my experience will snail products - none of them really gives a noticeable result in wrinkle improvements including this one. Not sure if my skin doesn't have much wrinkles to begin with, only the one under my eyes are severe because of sleep. The eye part is kinda tough. Not many products could improve dark circles or wrinkles under eyes.

Another function is whitening and this product really nailed it! I could see my skin is so much brighter the next morning because I notice that even my lighter bb or foundation doesn't look much different with my skin. It means that the colour blends well with me - so that's why I never said that I will throw away the cream that is lighter than my skin.

There're no breakouts or problems while I'm still using this. I'm completely satisfied with this ampoule. I would love to repurchase but my skincare collection is just too much and I just found a new HG recently which is better than this serum. I would love to re-purchase once more if I'm kind of broke out coz this is pretty affordable for a good results :)

Thank you for reading.

Mediviron UOA Clinic "Fractional CO2 Laser" Experience Part.2

If you haven’t read Part 1 of my review on Fractional CO2 Laser, click here.

Here, I will be showing you the progress on my face after a week, and after two months following the treatment. 


As you can see in the picture, there was a “net pattern” all over my face in the days after my first treatment session. I have to admit that my face looked bad, and I had to wear a face mask to hide it. The doctor said it was okay to wear make-up after treatment, as long as the product does not contain acid. But I still thought it was quite inconvenient as the makeup may look botched because of my rough skin. So I opted to go make-up free for about two weeks. I only wore sunblock, as Dr Lashela advised me to not go under the sun for too long, and to always wear moisturiser and sunblock for protection.  This is to protect my skin from further burning and pain.

The red dots were actually my pimples, which turned even redder after the treatment. You can see bruises on my chin as a result of the needle-like treatment that was part of the process.  

Despite the rough texture of my skin, I felt no pain on the second day. However, the net pattern was very obvious, and there were bruises on some parts of my face.


On day 5, the net pattern on my face was becoming less obvious. As you can see, my skin has gotten a lot brighter now, and I have started to wear eye makeup.

The skin on my chin was starting to peel, which meant I was going to have new skin soon. The peeling process is a must because it helps to replace my rough skin with new smooth skin.

I was advised not to peel the skin off myself, as it is going to interrupt the healing process. Just let the peelings fall off by itself. 

Other than that, the redness of my pimples has also started to fade. However, the treatment does not get rid of active pimples or acne. The treatment’s main purpose is to help smoothen out wrinkles and scars. I opted for the treatment because I wanted to smoothen out my acne scars.


On the 8th day after I went for the treatment, the net pattern across my face has disappeared almost entirely. I didn’t even realise that the peeling has come off, because I did not notice any peelings other that what occurred on the 5th day.

I did not experience any pain throughout the past week, despite being warned earlier by Doctor Lashela. I guess I have tough skin…lol

You can see that my skin has gotten better and my acne scars are less obvious. I still get pimples every now and then, but they usually just go away by themselves. I was not allowed to wear any skincare that contained harsh chemicals or acid, so I depended on Rosken moisturiser, which I bought at Watson’s. It is mild and did not contain any harsh chemicals.

I also used Biore milk sunblock. It is light and is absorbed quickly. For cleansing, I used Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser because it was recommended by many doctors as a mild cleanser for sensitive skin.

My skin was looking bright and the depth of my scars has decreased. I am happy with the results. I can wear my foundation by now, and people have said that my skin has improved a lot since Day 1. The bruises have disappeared almost completely as well. 


Now after two months, my skin is much smoother and more radiant, and there have been no after-effects from the treatment. I have less dark scars on my cheek too. I am very happy with the treatment, and I really got the best service while I was there, considering that it was sponsored.  
Thank you Mediviron UOA Clinic and thank you Doctor Lashela.

Mediviron UOA Clinic "Fractional CO2 Laser" Experience Part.1

Hi there! 

Sorry for lack of posts (as usual). I only just found time to write about my experience with Mediviron UOA Clinic from last February.  

As part of the Mediviron UOA Clinic Beauty Programme, I was given the opportunity to undergo treatment at their clinic for free! I was offered a list of treatment options to choose from and it took me a week to make up my mind. It was after sharing my skin problems with a consultant at the clinic that I decided to go for this treatment called "Fractional CO2 Laser".

A little info about Fractional CO2 Laser treatment:
"Fractional laser skin treatment is a technology that successfully corrects dermatological and cosmetic skin conditions, with increased comfort and minimal post-treatment pain and care. Fractional CO2 laser skin treatments give excellent results for skin resurfacing and when correcting skin conditions including scars, uneven, dull skin and fine lines" - quoted from here.

I went for the Fractional CO2 laser treatment, as it was recommended for my skin-type. I had hole-like scars from acne in the past, so I was hoping that the skin resurfacing effects from the treatment would help improve my skin texture.

We arranged for an appointment date. Next thing I knew, I was in their KL clinic all the way from Perak. :)

The exterior of the clinic.

Right after I confirmed my appointment at the counter, I was asked to wait as Dr. Lashela, my doctor for the day, was still meeting with another patient.

I was sitting on the opposite at the sofa in the waiting room. 

After a few minutes, I was asked to enter Dr. Lashela’s office. She wasn’t there when I went in, so I “selfied” for a bit…haha!

After a while, she came and greeted me. Then, she examined my skin and said that my skin wasn’t that bad after all. I told her maybe my make-up hid my bad skin, so she asked me to wipe off some of the make-up on my cheeks.

After looking at my bare cheeks, Dr. Lashela commented that I have deep acne scars that created the illusion of dark scars.

She told me that the Fractional CO2 laser treatment would help lessen the depth of my scars and explained a little more about the treatment procedure, and how it works before going ahead with it. 

Me and Dr. Lashela on the right.

During the consultation with Dr. Lashela, she provided a thorough explanation of the consequences and after-effects of the treatment I will be going through.

Some of the effects that she mentioned:
1 – My skin will feel rough for about a week or two depending on my skin’s healing properties.
2 – I will experience a burning sensation for about a week because my skin is in the middle of healing.
3 – There will be net-like pattern on my face due to the laser treatment for about a week and it will later peel off by itself.
4 – I will experience pain during treatment because a needle-like machine will be used.

After learning about the after-effects of the treatment, I continued to go ahead with the procedure as agreed. You can read more about it here.

They applied numbing cream on my face.

After the last consultation, they proceeded with my treatment. They applied numbing cream all over my face before treatment began and my face started to feel really numb after a while.  In my photos above, I didn’t even know if I was smiling or not because I couldn’t feel anything.

After that, they led me to the treatment room. While one of the staffs removed my make-up, a few other staffs came in to adjust the lighting of the room and they kept talking to me. I was a bit shy at first, but I was happy to see so many people in the room…

In the meantime, I was asked on how I started my blog and what my profession is. Most of them were shocked to hear that I was still a student. I guess maybe because I look mature? Cause I get that a lot from people.

The ever-glorious fractional laser machine.

I was shown the machine that will be used for my treatment. They said it is a really expensive machine. I wonder how much it costs...

One of staff removing my makeup traces but she kindly left my eye makeup intact...fufu

Finally, my treatment started after they cleansed my skin.

There were three steps in the process. First, it was the fractional laser, which left a net-like pattern on my skin. I thought it would be painful, but actually it was not. There was only a slight “electric” sensation. Everyone in the room was surprised when I said it was not as painful as I expected. The laser treatment lasted for roughly 10 minutes.

Next, the doctor used a needle-like machine. This was the most painful step of all. They only used the needle on small parts on my face, but I felt a sharp piercing. I think it was because my numbing cream was starting to wear out by then, that’s why it felt like it was the most painful. Thank God it didn’t last as long as I expected. The doctor even showed me the blood that resulted from the treatment. Surprisingly, I felt no fear at all. Sometimes, you need to feel the pain to look pretty, right?

For the third and last step for the treatment process, they covered my eyes with an eye mask for LED light treatment. I was left in the room under the LED light for about 15 minutes and I almost fell asleep…kkk. During the 15 minutes, there were times when the LED light felt a little too hot. I’m not sure if the heat came from the light, or if I was left with a burning sensation from step two of the process.

Here is the picture of my face as the result of the treatment. On the day of the treatment, the net pattern did not appear too obvious on me. I took this picture on the next day after treatment.

After the treatment was done, I travelled home with a face-mask because my face looked so red and swollen. However, I did not experience much pain after the treatment. However, I was told this depended on the person receiving the treatment.

Selfie before going home. Just look at my red face >_<

Part.2 will be coming next! Stay tune for the after-results.
