Resulting in a healthy, glowing skin J

How To Use It?

I could go on and on in writing on how to use this baby, but for your convenience, I’ve filmed a how-to video on this :D

It is really easy to use. In summary:

Skin Moisture Check Mode
1.     Turn the device on by holding onto the ON/OFF Button.
2.     Press the MODE(M) Button TWICE.
3.     Press the TIME(T) Button ONCE.
4.     Place the device onto your cheeks; keep it there until you hear the BEEP sound.
5.     Record your readings

Next, based on your moisture levels, massage your face with the Ultrasonic side of the device, in conjunction with any GEL-BASED PRODUCT to your face. This will help increase the absorption of the products. To switch to the Skin Massaging Mode:
1.     Turn the device on by holding onto the ON/OFF Button.
2.     Press the TIME(T) Button according to the time needed based on your moisture levels.
3.     Adjust the intensity using the ARROW Keys.
4.     Massage in a circular motion all over your face until the device BEEPS.

My Initial Thoughts:

I always thought my skin was properly moisturized, albeit slightly dry, but I never felt that it would be a below average range (less than 40% is DRY). So, the device really did give me a WAKE UP CALL as to how dehydrated my face is.

Being in Malaysia, the humid weather can often make people think that “Oh, my face is so oily all the time, I shouldn’t need to use moisturizer” OR “See the shine on my face? I’m very moisturized puh-leasee” But, that is SO NOT THE CASE!

The reason for the shine on your face, apart from the humidity, can also be caused due to your skin being dehydrated. When your skin feels dry, the brain automatically tells your skin to produce more “oil” to combat that dryness, hence the OILY FACE. If you are not moisturizing your face properly, imbalances can occur and will cause your skin to be too oily and excess build up will eventually lead to skin imperfections.

The key to healthy, glowing skin is…..HYDRATION!

So, the Bijouna Skin Moisture Checker clearly displayed my initial moisture levels and it came up with a 34% (THAT’S VERY LOW!!)

I then used the Ultrasonic Mode to massage my face, together with the Rosy Moisture Gel for about 6-8minutes (as recommended based on my moisture levels).  After the massage, I checked my moisture levels again and my moisture levels increased and I did feel that my skin became smoother and more supple. It even had that nice glow! Just watch the video to see the Before and After J I have ZERO MAKEUP on my face! (just eyebrows lol)

My Final Thoughts:

After using this religiously, ONCE A WEEK (you can use this everyday, I’m just a very lazy person :P) my skin has shown signs of being a healthy, moisturized skin.

I have a natural glow, even without using highlighters on my face.

My skin is very moisturized, and I do not look OILY by the end of the day.

My moisture levels are very regulated and controlled, in other words, it’s BALANCED.

I am super thankful for having this device given to me by Clariancy. They have an extensive range of the most awesome products to help you achieve healthier skin! Do check out their website for many more products and devices.

Good things are meant to be shared :D Happy Shopping!
