​Skin Philosophie by Dr. Kyla Talens

As a millennial Filipina, I suppose you would agree that maintaining good physical image in today’s society is crucial. You have every tool and application at hand that can possibly turn our photos from ordinary to something extra wonderful.


As a blogger, things have changed quite a bit for me. When I was still working, I have this constant notion to keep myself well-groomed at all times to serve as a good example to my trainees. But right now, things had to go up a notch.


For some reason, I never had the time to go to skin clinics, not because I was too busy, but because I thought I was doing okay. I mean, I use a fair number of beauty products, so maybe I was trying enough to take good care of myself, but when I got invited to Skin Philosophie’s event, I realized maybe I should try to consider paying a visit soon.


It’s not really because of vanity, but I guess there can be services that you thought you don’t need but you actually do. For example, eye rejuvenation. I never thought that my simple and random late night activities could cause my eyebags to look really bad.

I am not getting any younger, so investing on my skin and my health should probably be lifted to my top 5 priorities now.

I am so happy that I got to know Skin Philosophie and the brain behind this medical aesthetic and lifestyle solution center.

Dr. Kyla Talens, M.D., DCD, MSc

Dr. Kyla Talens, M.D., DCD, MSc who was celebrating her birthday that day is the CEO and the Chief Aesthetic Dermatologist of Skin Philosophie. Her main interest was aesthetic medicine, specifically skin and laser treatments.

She earned her degree and education from University of the Philippines, Cardiff University in the United Kingdom and Ramathibodi Hospital – Mahidol University, Thailand.

She said that she also incorporates her creative and artistic inclination into her practice. She emphasizes that, “It is of paramount importance for a doctor to have a keen eye for symmetry and proportion so that results look natural after procedures.” And I couldn’t agree more!

I had the best time discovering how Skin Philosophie can help me in my skin problems, which is why I cannot wait to have my own treatment very soon.

Boutique Clinic Concept


The services and facilities are all comfortably placed in a luxurious boutique clinic. I can’t help but admire the casual yet elegant atmosphere. The clinic firmly believes that they want to make their patients feel at ease as they undergo a very positive change in their lives.

Their portfolio of services include, scar repair, age-proofing, age reversing, acne solutions, body contouring with fat reduction, face sculpting, laser treatments, whitening, therapeutic massages, non-surgical procedures, dermal filler injections, face and body art and many more!

Affordable Luxury on Skin Care and Services

The place and location could be a little intimidating, no doubt about that. But the best news is that, while their treatment costs are not exactly that low, they are not abusively high. After all, overly cheap things cannot be trusted.

The smart patients put premium on the value of money. And it is also important to invest in one’s physical image, but there should be enough left for other finer and more significant things in life. After all, we should always spend wisely.

The Skin Bureau Pretty Political Ultimate Facial Set Review

I was really giddy to try The Skin Bureau Pretty Political Ultimate Facial Set. They come in really cute packaging, and I was so excited to try how these locally made products are perfect for girls, even for as young as 13.

I have occasional breakouts and I was hoping these would help. That’s why, I tried them for a month to see the results.

The Skin Bureau is a brand of skincare products owned by Nurse Pharmaceuticals.

  1. President Pretty Soap
  2. Beauty Queen Party Day Toner
  3. Charming Campaign Day Gel
  4. Gorgeous Allegation Night Toner
  5. Cabinet of Allure Night Cream

 

The President Pretty Soap

IMG_20170706_091621

This product gently removes dead skin cells without drying your skin. It is also an anti-oxidant soap, perfect for keeping your skin healthy.

I was really surprised with this product because they deliver really good results! My face was brighter and clearer!

Pros:

  • Brightens skin
  • Removes makeup even without using a makeup remover
  • Softens and smoothens skin
  • Blemishes looked lighter

Cons:

  • Stingy
  • Easily melts (I suggest you cut it in half to lengthen longevity)

 

Beauty Queen Party Day Toner

This toner fights acne and removes the dirt and excess oil to prevent breakouts. Actually, ever since I started using this my pimples started to decrease in number, and for some reason they sort of stopped appearing. So I can say it is really effective!

Pros:

  • Acne will considerably diminish
  • Removes excess dirt and makeup residue
  • Clears skin effectively

Cons:

  • Dries skin
  • A little prickly to breakouts (As we all call it, “tiis ganda” and “No pain, no gain!”)

 

Charming Campaign Day Gel

I like how this feels on my skin even when I am just home. It glides smoothly on the skin, and preps my face just right before I put on my makeup.

Pros:

  • Good makeup base
  • Moisturizes skin well
  • Prevents skin damage from the sun and pre-mature aging
  • Small amount is already enough for face and neck

Cons:

  • Doesn’t dry quickly
  • Reminds of me of Sebo de Macho’s smell

 

Gorgeous Allegation Night Toner

Your pores are unlogged and leaves skin texture refined and feeling smooth and fresh!

Pros:

  • Removes excess oil, dirt and makeup
  • My face feel refreshed after using this!
  • Leaves face cold and pores feels tightened

Cons:

  • A little stingy for the skin, only you have acne

Cabinet of Allure Night Cream

What I love about this is that my skin feels so moisturized, and I wake up with a very fresh aura.

Pros:

  • Moisturizes effectively
  • Smoothens skin
  • Restores Elasticity

Cons:

  • Scent can be improved

 

I have read different results from other users, so I guess it would still vary depending on  your skin’s properties and PH.

But overall, I love this beauty set! It may not be perfect on all sides, but they have given me wonderful results!

The main takeaways for this is that my blemishes faded a great deal, and I have a brighter and clearer skin! Pimples hardly appear anymore! 😀

Thank you The Skin Bureau for restoring my face’s brightness and moisture!
