Review: Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask, Instant Hydration, Brightness & Reduces Skin Oiliness The Next Day

I’m here again with another sheet mask review of Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask and if you follow me long enough, I always love to use sheet mask!

Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask

‘5 Tea complex tighten pores agaisnt sagging skin and helps control sebum secretion. It leaves skin clear and smooth. Papaya fruit extract restores oily skin to clear and fresh skin.’

Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask Front & Back

This is how it looks like for the front and back of the mask pack. A simple one sheet mask pack.

Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask Description

As most of the description is printed in Korean, in the middle of the back of the pack has English sharing the benefits of the mask, directions to use and ingredients. Fortunately, the mask does not contain Paraben, fragrance, pigment or alcohol which I believe this mask will be suitable for sensitive skin unless you are sensitive to selective ingredients.

Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask Kink

The kink at the top sides of the mask is made useful to open the pack and opening the mask pack is definitely an ease.

Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask Inside

Such moistful mask sitting in the pack and I noticed that this mask look slightly yellowish as compared to the ones I have tried.

Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask How To

Like many other mask, it is very easy to use this mask. Just follow these steps,

  1. Ensure skin is cleansed and pat dry.
  2. Gently remove the mask from it’s pack.
  3. Unfold the mask carefully and applied it over the face.
  4. Leave the mask for 20 – 30 minutes, remove and massage the leftover essence.

Cettua Pore Control Facial Mask Before & After

Before and after using the mask, the result shows brighter skin tone and greater skin hydration.

Above all…

The mask seems like it does nothing at all than brighten and moisturized my skin right after removing it. My pores remained at it’s size but the next day my skin is noticeably less oily. On my usual routine of blotting is where I noticed it. Therefore, I would say that this mask helps in reducing skin oiliness and I’m only using this one time where shallows the chance of me witnessing pore size reduction. Maybe it could in long term usage. I would recommend this for combination to oily skin types.

Empro Cosmetics BonBrow, Touch Up After A Month

Last month I went for Empro Bonbrow and a month later, I went for a touch up session which I definitely need it because my brows look way too natural from what I have expected. From my purchase, I am entitled with a free touch up session.

The process goes the same as how I had described it in my previous post. I’m so glad to meet my artist again, May as she is very patient to hear what I want to archive for me brows. Since the outcome turned out so natural, I did share with her I want my brows look even thicker and flatter. Basically, like the current trending Korean brows. This would be able to shorten my oblong face shape.

Empro Bonbrow Touch Up

This is how it looks like after the touch up. It looks really thick like Shin Chan which I didn’t mind because I know I will go through the process of peeling and the brow shape would shrink.

Empro Bonbrow Touch Up After Peel

After a week, this is how it looks like. Definitely this looks so much better and from this photo, the shade may look uneven but it’s quite alright in real. I do notice where my left brow seem to be higher than the right and it’s some area are not quite filled at the top part of my brows. The front of the brows seems shorter, slightly more further from my nose bridge.

I did share my concern to May on what if I am still not happy with my brows. She mentioned where I could come back a month later to get them fixed without charges. I think I would need to look out for her again to fix my left brow.

Empro Bonbrow Touch Up - Traclyn & May Yong

This is May Yong, where I promised in my previous post that I would get a photo with her. She is the Senior Artist as well as Assistant Supervisor of Empro Mid Valley. She is highly recommended for her service, patience and experience. Feel free to look out for her if you would like to get your brows done.

Dr Ko Beauty Transformation: PDO Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission

As my beauty journey continues for non abrasive treatment, I started again with Dr Ko Clinic and I did Fractional Co2 Laser with Subcission. I continue this journey also with Dr Ko of another treatment of PDO Threadlift, Silicio and Subcission.

All these treatments may sound scary, let me just enlighten you with the definitions. Subcission is an injection where I have explained in previous post.

PDO Threadlift

PDO thread lift is one of the most safe and effective methods to do so, non-surgically. This procedure is most commonly done for the face, while it is also extremely effective in breast and neck lifting and firming, as well as arms, thighs, tummy, calves and buttock tightening and elevation.

Silicio

Silicio is an organic silicon which is water soluble. It increases the synthesis of collagen and elastic fibres, therefore helps with regeneration of epidermis and dermic cells.

Dr Ko Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission Local Anesthetic

About a month ago, I have undergone this treatment and my previous doctor has been transferred. My current doctor would be Dr Lee Yan Han. Before starting on the treatment, numbing cream was applied for 40 minutes. Local anesthetic was injected on the middle of both of my cheeks. I definitely could feel the immediate swell where the medication goes under my skin and you could witness it through the series of my photos in this post.

Dr Ko Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission Left Cheek

First procedure would be PDO threadlift. Honestly speaking, I could not feel a single thing not even for the threadlift to go under my skin at all. The local anesthetic definitely did it’s job. Dr Lee did show me  those the unopened sterile pack of needles before  proceeding to the procedure. How it works is where Dr Lee injects onto my skin and gently remove it. There is a white tab over the needle that puts a stop for the thread while removing the needle for it to stay under the skin.

Dr Ko Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission Right Cheek

Dr Lee was very attentive to keep checking with me from time to time if I’m doing good. My face was so numb that I could not feel my nose, I was indeed worrying if I am breathing where I chose to breathe from my mouth in the next procedure. Threadlift could also be use to raise nose bridge which I get to know on the day itself which I am pretty much interested with it.

Dr Ko Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission Subcission

Here is the subcission where Dr Lee is injecting directly to my depressed scars most of the time. Subcission helps to assist to reduce the depth of the scars.

Dr Ko Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission Silicio

At the very end, I had undergone silicio where Dr Lee reminded this injection could be painful. She kid me not about this because it was quite painful that I kept questioning myself when Dr Lee would stop injecting anymore. The needle is slightly thicker and medication gives a light tingling sensation. It may sound like I had so many injections and I am fine, my face was a little swollen.

Dr Ko Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission Before & After 1 Month

Here is a comparison before undergoing this procedures and a month later. I love how the threadlift gives the volume over my face which is something I would normally look for. My skin look much more radiant and rosy than before. As for the scars, they are slightly less visible as to compare but they are not entirely gone yet.

Dr Ko Threadlift, Silicio, Subcission Before & After 2 Months

After 2 months, my skin has remained smooth and radiant but seem to loose its plumpness as it can be seen from the sides of my nose.

Unfortunately, I believe one of the injections left me some red mark scars over my cheeks and I have shared this with Dr Lee. She called me immediately the next day to seek for photos and to check on my skin condition severity. Additional cream and medication was sent to me in order to improve my skin. She also shared this may be caused by my skin dryness which I do face it most of the time after my laser. Kudos for your prompt action Dr Lee and team.

Just to share with you, the prices of the procedures I have done.

  • Fractional CO2 & Subcision – MYR1800
  • PDO Thread lift – MYR1800 (subject to area, to raise nose bridge, starts from RM2500 onwards)
  • Silicio Organico – MYR1800

I will continue my beauty adventure with Dr. Ko and please stay tuned as I have more to share of my next treatment. Meanwhile, do share your support to Dr. Ko Skin Specialist Centre by liking their Facebook below.
