Hellooooooo! I am back with another post!!! I was actually supposed to post this yesterday but my schedule has been crazy with rehearsals, gigs & all so I only got to post it now 😅
ANYWAY, so many people have been asking me about my current skincare routine and it’s funny cause that was one of the reasons why I started this blog in the first place. Apparently Instagram has a character count??? And sooo, I couldn’t share my skincare routine on Instagram (cause it’s too damn long hahaha) I had to find another way. And I ended up making a full blown blog because of it.
My skincare routine blog post has been receiving a lot of views and comments and so I wanted to post another one which is the updated version because I made a few changes and added/replaced/took out some. And so here it is! Again if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to leave a comment! I will get back to you as soon as I can! 🙂
For this post I used the emojis, 🌞 &🌛! The sun means I use it in the morning, the moon means I use it in the evening and if both are present, that means I use them both morning and evening!
1. CLEANSING BALM (Banila Co.) 🌛
FAVE BALM FOREVER. Like I super love this!!! This is already my fourth tub! So as you can see I love it so much ❤️ I use this every night even when I don’t wear that much makeup because it helps get rid of the impurities and dirt on my skin so that my pores do not get clogged and cause acne! For me, this is a NEED in any skincare routine and so go and buy one now!
2. EXFOLIATOR (Cure) 🌛
This is my go-to exfoliator! At first it may not seem like one because it doesn’t have any beads or grains but once you rub it on your DRY face, you’ll see the magic happen! It ends up taking off all your dead and dry skin! And it’s makes no mess at all! It’s a bit pricey but it’s a huge bottle! It’ll surely last you a few months since you’re only supposed to exfoliate at least 2-3 times a week.
3. CLEANSER (COSRX pH Cleanser) 🌞
So far, this is one of the best cleansers I have ever tried. It’s so gentle yet it really cleans my skin! It takes out all the dirt and impurities! Plus, it even works as a great make-up remover. Whenever I use this to take off make-up, it doesn’t need much! This is my go-to cleanser because after I use, my face always feels squeaky clean!
4. CLEANSER (COSRX Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser) 🌛
Another one of my go-to cleansers! I use this one at night only. Unlike other exfoliating cleansers, this one does not dry up my skin! What’s a plus is that it has Salicylic Acid and so it’s great for those prone to acne! And don’t worry cause it works for sensitive skin too. I have sensitive skin and have been using this every night but it never irritated my skin or caused it to peel. That’s saying something!
5. TONER (COSRX AHA BHA Toner) 🌞🌛
By far one of the best toners out there! It is so gentle on my skin! Would definitely recommend this to those of you who have sensitive skin. It doesn’t have much of a scent and it doesn’t sting my skin at all when I apply it. What I also like about this toner is that it makes it easier for me to apply my Vitamin C and chemical exfoliators because it normalizes the pH level of my skin which is what is needed to apply the following products!
6. VITAMIN C (Klairs) 🌛
I tried C21 before but oh was it strong! It didn’t do anything for my sensitive skin except make it even more sensitive. Tbh, it ended up doing more harm than good and so I decided to research for a more gentle vitamin c serum and this is what I found! It’s not too strong and so you won’t see the results right away but you WILL see them. It just takes time! I’d rather take my time than use a stronger product that could do more damage to my skin.
7. DARK SPOT CORRECTOR (Kiehls) 🌛
This is new in my skincare routine. I got this a few weeks back and I have been using it with my vitamin c BUT I only use this for specific areas like for my scars and dark spots. I decided to use this in conjuction with my Klairs Vitamin C because I felt like this specific areas needed an extra push. I use them together and so far they have both been working great for me!
8. AHA / BHA (COSRX) 🌛
I’ve been using BHA but I recently added my AHA. I wanted to try AHA because I wanted to see its effect on my whiteheads. I don’t use it everyday because I feel like that would be too much for my skin. I use it around 3 times a week or more if needed. I’d say it’s been working well for me but a bit of a warning, the smell is pretty unpleasant. And so if you’re sensitive to scents, I suggest you don’t buy it. The BHA on the other hand works well for me! It prevents pimples which I really like plus there is no scent at all and so that’s a plus!
9. ESSENCE (LJH Tea Tree Essence) 🌞🌛
This is another addition to my skincare routine! I really liked my Snail Essence from COSRX but I just wanted to try out another one that could target specifically my oiliness and acne. And so I researched and researched and I found this! I heard this has been working great for those with sensitive skin and I’m glad I decided to try it out because I have been loving it! It really helps calm my skin down especially the redness of my skin. It’s pretty affordable and accessible and so go ahead and buy one!
10. EMULSION (COSRX Natural BHA Emulsion) 🌞🌛
Been using this since the start and I still love it! It’s not just a moisturizer, it also works to make my skin glow as well as “mattify” it. I like using this because it’s very gentle and it really refines my skin texture – making it more smooth and plump! Some people find this unecessary but I’ve had this since the start of my skincare routine and I don’t think I’ll ever let it go!
11. MOISTURIZER (COSRX Honey Ceramide Full Moisture Cream) 🌞🌛
My fave moisturizer ❤ I really love this moisturizer! It is not too heavy, not too light. I have combination skin and so I’m sometimes oily and I have some dry patches and so this moisturizer is perfect for me. I use only a little bit in the morning though and more at night so that I don’t get too oily during the day. This really helps get rid of my dry patches so ugh lifesaver.
12. EYE CREAM (Skinfood Salmon Eye Cream) 🌞🌛
BEST EYE CREAM EVER. I already told you guys before that I have been looking for an eye cream that would help with my “dry” under eyes. And so far, this has been my fave!!! It took me a while to find this one but once I tried it, I instantly saw the difference! The skin under my eyes were no longer dry! Even when I applied concealer! Before my fine lines would be really seen and it looked really bad but thanks to this eye cream, that rarely happens! I apply this every morning and night!
13. SLEEPING PACK (Etude House Sleeping Pack) 🌛
I have been using this sleeping pack since the time I first formed my skincare routine. I was kinda afraid at first that this would make me breakout cause I know Etude House is known for really scented essences and masks but this one doesn’t really have a scent and it’s very gentle on my skin! Plus every time I wake up, my skin always feels hydrated! I’ve had this since last year and there’s still so much product left! So it’s definitely worth the price!
14. SPOT TREATMENT (Mario Badescu Drying Lotion) 🌛
I recently got this but it has already made it to the top of my list. I really wanted to find a strong spot treatment for my acne and so I researched about several brands but I liked this one and it’s now available in Rustans and so I bought it! On my first day of using it, I already noticed the difference! It really shrunk my pimple and dried them out! They were almost gone overnight! Definitely a keeper!
15. ACNE PATCHES (A’pieu Nonco Medicated Acne Patches)🌛
One of my trusty medicated acne patches!!! Whenever I put it on a spot, the next day it’s almost gone! It really works!!! I already wrote a more extensive review on this before so check it out here! 🙂
16. SUNBLOCK (COSRX Aloe Vera SPF) 🌞
My trusty sunblock! Idk what I would do without this sunblock!!!! I used to not wear sunblock because I didn’t like how it clogged my pores and I hated the sticky feeling but I knew I still needed to wear and so I researched for one that would be super light and that wouldn’t cause me to break out. I saw the great reviews of this product and so I bought it and wow it’s amazing!!!!! I never leave the house without it! It actually makes me love putting on sunblock! Which is a big thing for me. If you want a sunblock that doesn’t give you that sticky heavy feeling, this one is for you!
