Hi! Assalamualaikum. As you can tell, I am going to review a LaF Med.Secret Cream + Ceramide moisturizer. Moisturizer is the most important step in the skincare. Even I am still searching for the right moisturizer for my skin. Even though I have a dry and dehydrated skin, my skin are easily clogged, so not many moisturizer that I have tried able to give the right hydration for my skin without clogging it and caused it to breakout.

LaF
Med.Secret Cream + Ceramide | Moisturizer 

I purchased this at Guardian, I believe as of date, it is only available at Guardian. I have not seen LaF products yet at any Watson stores that I went. It is quite pricey for me actually, it cost me RM 47 for a tube which only contain 50g of the product. Furthermore, I saw many people rave about it, and skincare products expert/reviewer Iman Abdul Rahim also suggested this moisturizer and she has dry skin as well. So I bought it based on the recommendation and try it for myself.

Personal Review:
In terms of packaging, I like that it is in tube form rather than in pot/tub/jar packaging. So we don’t dip our fingers in it and keep it from any bacteria. But usually those moisturizers in tube are thicker in texture. It is also in green colours, which most of skincare products are mostly in white, but I really like colourful packaging, it will look nice on your vanity.

It claimed it is a solution for dry and sensitive skin – which is me! But I think, it does not give my skin enough hydration that I need. The cream is really thick but it absorbs quite nicely to my skin. Not sticky and after smoothing it out, my skin feels really soft and smooth. Just like wearing a silicone primer on your skin. Personally I don’t like that, and it made me feel like I’m clogging my pores. When I use it less, I feel that it is not enough for my skin, but when I use it more, I feel it is too thick to the extend it can clog my pores.



It contains ceramide which is really good ingredients, so it is good for repairing your skin barrier, if you want to treat your skin, what you need is to give your skin more hydration and repair your skin barrier first. It does not contain any fragrance as well but I like the scent! It has citrus smell which it gives you fresh feeling when you put in on. I don’t know about others' preferences on the citrus smell in their skincare products, but I do like it a lot. When I use citrus or any fruits smell products, my brain automatically register it as a good items you know – fresh, good and natural product haha but it just me.

I still have about half tube of this moisturizer, sayang lah kan, I don’t want to waste it and someitmes I still using it. Currently, I only use it once or twice per week in my night skincare routine. Because I do find that it is clogging my pores and sometimes it does irritate my skin, so I tend not to use it in my daily skincare routine. I will use this moisturizer on the days that I have super dry and need extra extra moisturizers. Before I put this moisturizer on my skin, I will slather other moisturizer first, which is lighter in texture and runny, let it sinks nicely then I will put Laf Med.Secret + Ceramide cream on top of it.


Overall opinion:
Do I like it?
Not really.

Will I re-purchase it?
No. It is quite pricey and my skin does not love it.

Do I recommend it?
Yes. To those who have dry to normal skin, but those who have drier skin type, dehydrated skin & easily clogged pores, no I don’t recommend this to you.
