[WORKSHOP + REVIEW + VLOG] Dettol pH Balance Shower Gel

Bonjour After couples of food review, it's time to come back with #Beauty review! It's never too late to pamper your skin. However, beside of the beauty care, we shall concentrate on our health as well. When I talk about a brand which can make our skin healthier, what come to your mind? For me, my mind always pop out with Dettol.

Yes. I was invited to attend their Dettol pH Balance Shower Gel Event @ Boulevard Hotel.

Hubert explained detailed to us what is ph balance and the importance of it.

In our daily life, we are easily to get exposure to germs, dirt and pollution especially in today's world. For instance, when I'm having lunch at public place, we touch the dirty table / chairs. Or, when I'm swimming in a swimming pool which consist of chlorine. We all knew it will definitely harmful for our skin.

Moreover, if you are a mother, your role as the family protector you will always strive to ensure that your family is germ free all the time. Everytime you came back home from the outside, just use Dettol to clean your hand or shower in order to stay germ free and healthy. =)

They also showed us what was the difference between the rose petals sinking with Dettol and Brand X for 3 hours / 6 hours / 9 hours. As you can guys can see, the rose petal sinking with Brand X was slightly turning black while the rose petal sinking with Dettol still looks very beautiful. Imagine our skin = rose petal, I guess you able to get what I'm trying to say right sweeties?  =) 

So, you guys must be wondering, why is pH balance so essential? Fyi, the balance between acidity and alkalinity in your body is referred to as pH, or potential of hydrogen. Different factors can influence whether your blood has too much or too little acid, including food and the health of your organs to filter carbon dioxide from your body. Achieving pH balance is a complex process that occurs within your body, but you can help regulate it with healthy habits.

The Acid Mantle (natural skin barrier)

✿ A very fine, slightly acidic invisible film on your skin, which protects your skin
 Protects the skin from bacteria, viruses, contaminants
✿ Naturally secreted by the skin
✿ Healthy pH: (4.5 to 6.2)
✿ Germs and contaminants are neutralised by the skin’s acid mantle
✿ Keeps the skin: healthy, soft and supple, free from dryness, cracks and abrasions
✿ Prevents growth of bad bacteria, enhances good bacteria

Cause of stress, inflammation, infection

✿ Central heating or Air conditioning
✿ Environmental changes: UV rays, Exhaust fumes, Pollutants, Dust, haze, heat
✿ Oxidants
✿ Harmful microorganisms such as germs and bacteria

Caring for your Acid Mantle

Must haves :
✿ Cleansing (with a slightly acidic cleanser) & moisturise for healthy skin
✿ Antibacterial Protection for germ free skin

Optional :
✿ Sun-Protection
✿ Treat the damage – wrinkles, pigmentation others
✿ Treat your skin gently

Then, they demonstrate to us what's the different between Brand X and Dettol on our skin.

Wet tissue for us to clean the dirt.

Ta-da!! The colourful series of Dettol pH Balance Shower Gel

Dettol now has a new pH balanced formula that not only protects your skin from germs and bacteria but also helps retain skin moisture, preserving the natural barrier of your skin

You can notice the pH balance result between Brand X and Dettol. 

pH is a measure of the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution. Solutions with a pH less than 7 are said to be acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic or alkaline. Pure water has a pH very close to 7.

Basically the ph testing showed that Dettol is in a healthy level which consist of acid that human needs. It can protect our skin with germ-free and moisture. On the other hand, the Brand X consider more into alkaline level which is unhealthy for our skin. It might cause dry, damage on our skin.

Lesson learnt, the pen need to clean up with dry tissue.

My favourite would be the radiance one. The fragrance was so good. Nicole beside me by the way.

They also arranges us the breakfast and lunch buffet for us as well. Thank you for the lovely treats and goodies. =)

I started using since I was 2 or something? My parents always bought Dettol's liquid handwash back home and advise here always wash our hand before eating or when just came back from outside. Since I was a kid, I always thought this kind of healthy handwash for sure will have the medicine smell or something. However, after I started using the body wash, my worries been solved. =) My skin also getting smoother and moisture.
