My Ensogo Experience (and initial Hiruscar impressions)

2:04 PM

This is the first post I'll be making exclusively from my phone. (Even the photos are taken with my iPhone.) It doubles as practice for when I go to Bangkok without a laptop. :) Also, all but two of these photos were run through a vintage filter on Snapseed. I'll probably regret doing this, but for now I'm liking the effect.

A few months ago I heard about Hiruscar. Just my luck, Ensogo was running a deal where you could get two tubes for the price of one. This was the first time I was going to avail of a deal from Ensogo, and it was a pickup one at that.

On a Thursday afternoon, I set off for Global City. After getting a little lost, I found the W Building where the Ensogo office is located. I guess a lot of people pick their items up because the guard at bag check immediately asked me if I was there for Ensogo. He then directed me to reception, where I registered and left an ID.

After getting off on the 2nd floor I saw this shiny office with the Ensogo logo. This is NOT where you claim items. To the right of the office is a small storage/waiting area with fluorescent lighting.

THIS is the Claims office. Notice the teeny sign telling you to get a number. There is no device that displays the current number being served, so you have to pay attention each time they call out.

I couldn't help noticing the list of Not Available items. I overheard two customers were wondering why their item was not available, when they had purchased a voucher for it.

The waiting area has several computer swivel chairs where you can sit. A medium-sized flatscreen TV is mounted on the wall. During my stay, a lot of seats were free and Iron Man 2 was showing on the TV. All good. :D

Not everyone's pickup experience has been so pleasant. I suppose it varies with the deals they offer at certain times (maybe a lot are pickup-only), as well as with the day of the week. Here are:

Tips for Ensogo Pick-ups

  1. Call beforehand to confirm that your item is in stock. I don't understand how it can happen when the items are pre-paid, but they do run out of stock.
  2. Don't forget to bring your voucher! I almost did. :D
  3. DON'T go on a Friday afternoon. Based on Lia's experience, it's the worst time to go.

Twenty minutes after entering the building, I walked out with these. I chose the 5g tubes vs. the 20g tubes for portability, since it's supposed to be applied 3-4 times a day. So I have one at home and another in my bag. I might give the others as gifts.

Hiruscar is a hypoallergenic non-greasy gel that helps lighten, smoothen and soften scars on both the face and the body. With its quick absorption rate, application is fast, hassle-free, and is ideal for all skin types. It has 6 power-ingredients that penetrate into your skin and helps improve and reduce scar visibility.
  1. MPS (Mucoplysaccharide Polysulphate): Increases skin cells ability to retain moisture, that helps soften and smoothen existing scars
  2. Allium Cepa: (onions!) Reduces and prevents protruding skin or excess skin
  3. Aloe Vera: Promote wound healing and adds moisture to the skin
  4. Vitamin B: Adjusts skin tone and dissipates black marks
  5. Vitamin E: Excellent moisturuze and anti-oxidant
  6. Allantoin: Speeds up peeling process and adds more moisture
Working together, the power of these 6 molecules in Hiruscar, has been clinically proven to show scar improvement in 93% of the test subjects. Scars caused by pimples, surgery, burns and a myriad of other types of scars were significantly less visible and skin appeared clearer in just 12 weeks.

Hiruscar provides an effective solution to both new and matured scars. Continual application for 4-6 months, 3-4 times daily will help scars to appear less visible, smoother and softer.

DISCLAIMER: Results may vary depending on type of scar and product application


Product information on the box...


And on the tubes. I received sealed boxes and tubes. *thumbs up* I think these were discounted because of the nearing expiration date. But with such frequent application, I'll probably consume them by then.

Initial Impressions

The gel is clear and non-sticky. It's absorbed into the skin fairly quickly. There's a rosy perfumey scent that I found pleasant in the beginning, but now I find quite pungent and slightly irritating. Not a deal breaker though.

I've been using Hiruscar for about 3 weeks. At first I was very compliant, but now I apply it only once or twice a day. My bad! No big changes yet, but I do notice that my scar (of 1 year) is lightening in color and is becoming softer to touch. Then again, it might just be the natural repair process. I'll get back to you after 4 months.

Hiruscar is available in Mercury Drug, Watsons, and South Star Drug at:
Php319 for 5g tube
Php 852 for 20g
