VMV Hypoallergenics Vacation Kit Review9:56:00 AM
A few of weeks ago, I decided to buy the VMV Hypoallergenics Vacation Kit while I was perusing through some items at Zalora PH. I needed to get myself some summer essentials in preparation for our team summer outing to Bantayan Island. The whole kit was priced at only Php735 pesos, so I figured it's probably worth a try, I needed it anyway.
We went to Mayet Beach Resort in Bantayan Island for two days, where the heat was almost unbearable but the beach was just beautiful, calm, and clear, so it was still worth the trip. Amidst the scorching heat and humid weather on the island, the VMV Hypollergenics Vacation Kit proved to be very useful during our short stay.
Experience: I've only used this twice during my short time at the beach. It is very mild and gentle but does a great job of cleansing both my face and body. My face felt clean, fresh and well hydrated. It doesn't feel dry all. I had a bit of makeup on when I first used the VMV Hypoallergenics Essence Skin Saving Clark Wash to see how well it cleans. I then swiped a non-alcohol based toner on my face and was glad to see very little trace of makeup on the cotton pad.
I didn't use it on my hair since this wash is fragrance-free. I prefer my hair to smell good. hehe It produces little to no bubbles when I massage it on my face. The consistency and texture actually reminds me of the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser which I use daily for my both my little boys. But the skin saving clark wash has more of a gel-like feel to it.
Verdict: I would highly recommend this for those with sensitive skin as it is an awesome multipurpose cleanser which is mild enough for babies as well. However, I feel that it does the same thing as the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser, so I won't be repurchasing this.
VMV Hypoallergenics ID Monolaurin Gel - is packed with a unique, skin-safe, coconut-derived antibacterial, monolaurin which has four uses:
- Treatment for bacne and sweat acne.
- Treatment for other forms of acne on the face, chest, back, arms, posterior, thighs, etc.
- Disinfects skin.
- Works as a mattifier to control shine and keep skin feeling cool and fresh.
Experience: I used the monolaurin gel on a couple of pimples that I had during our stay. I applied at least twice a day on affected areas. I noticed that the bumps did not get much bigger. Though it didn't dry out overnight, it all dried out on the second day of use. I continued to apply the VMV Hypoallergenics id Monolaurin Gel on my face when I came back home and it has definitely helped shrink all of the pimples on my face.
The gel is fragrance-free and it does not sting. Also, I really enjoyed the cooling sensation I get whenever I apply this gel all over my face.
Verdict: I didn't notice if it indeed control shine on my face especially the t-zone area, but this works great as treatment for any form of acne with continued use. Would I repurchase? Maybe. This 50ml bottle will probably last me a while since I only need a pea-sized amount to treat existing pimples.
Overall, the VMV Hypoallergenics Vacation Kit was worth every penny. Their products are of high quality and perfect for my sensitive skin. Also, I felt that this kit is a good way to out different products from the brand. Definitely, Hollie Approved!
