Of course my blog wouldn’t be the same without reviews of some of my current favorite skincare products. I mean, that’s the whole reason why I came up with this blog in the first place! 😂
I know it’s been a while but here I am with a review (FINALLY) of some of the products I’ve been using for my evening skincare routine!
If you guys have noticed, the weather has been crazy these past few days! There are times when it’s too hot or when it’s too cold – it’s just been very “on & off” lately and so I’ve been adjusting my skincare routine A LOT to compensate for this crazy weather!!! BUT I’ve finally come up with a SOLID skincare routine that’s been going great so far and so I want to share with you guys some of the products that make it awesome!
For this blog post, I will be reviewing the STARS of my night time skincare routine!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️
1. Heimish Cleansing Balm
I’ve been getting really oily during the day time (cause of the weather) and it’s been making me feel absolutely icky and dirty – I just don’t like the feeling of having too much oil on my face. BUT this cleanser gets rid of all my worries because once I use it, my face feels squeaky clean AND hydrated at the same time.
Just a note though – it’s consistency is a bit more watery compared to that of Clean it Zero and so it may be a bit messier and may be a hassle for you guys but I personally like it because it makes it easier to lather all over my face!
To be honest, instead of repurchasing my nth (I’ve lost count) tub of Banila Co, I think I’ll be buying another tub of Heimish Cleansing Balm!!! It’s THAT good!
I bought this from the Skin Curator!!! Check out their instagram here!
2. DearKlairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner
The DearKlairs Supple Preparation Facial Toner is gentle yet effective! I love how it’s filled with natural ingredients instead of chemical ones. I especially love that it contains Centella Asiatica! I have just made a discovery that Centella Asiatica works wonders for my skin!!! It calms down my irritated skin especially when I’m beginning to get bad breakouts. Tbh, I consider it a good thing and bad thing that I discovered this because now I am hooked on buying all kinds of products with this ingredient 😅
((I ACTUALLY just bought the DearKlairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream and so stay tuned for a review very soon!!! 😉))
Anyway, this toner has been doing wonders for my skin! My skin doesn’t get all red like it used to and instead appears to be more calm! Plus my dry patches seem to be healing faster. I personally recommend this toner for those of you who have super sensitive skin (just like me) cause this definitely helps with that! Swear!
I bought this from Dara Beauty Market on Instagram! You can buy other Korean Beauty Products from there! Check it out!!!
3. Kiehl’s Breakout Control Blemish Treatment Facial Lotion
I’ve been looking for a product to help prevent breakouts BUT is safe to use everyday. Strong products like that nowadays tend to dry your skin, just like my Benzoyl Peroxide Cream that I still use BUT ONLY for trouble spots and not for everyday use!
At this time, I was looking around Kiehl’s and I saw this – it had me at “BREAKOUT CONTROL”! After reading about it, I was convinced to buy it right away BUT I wasn’t 100% sure if it would work for me and so I settled for 3 samples. And guess what? I used them all up AND LOVED IT. That’s when I said – “I need to buy the full-sized product!!!!!”
This lotion has definitely been keeping my bad breakouts at bay! Yeah, I did get the occasional zit here and there but not as bad as before. And you know what makes this product even better??? IT DOES NOT DRY UP MY SKIN. It doesn’t!!! (Maybe it’s cause I have oily skin but the thing is I do get dry patches and so the fact that I can use this without my skin drying up says something.)
ALSO, this lotion is very thin – I only use a pea-sized amount and after I apply it, my face doesn’t feel greasy. As a matter a fact, when I use it, it doesn’t feel like I’ve applied anything!
One iffy thing I would say though about this product is that it has a strong smell. It’s kinda like a strong herbal smell and so I’m not sure if some of you will like it but personally, I don’t mind it at all because it doesn’t linger.
I would recommend this product for those of you who have oily/combination skin. Not sure about those of you with dry skin cause daily use might not work for you! Use with caution 🙂
4. Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream
I know, I know. I have a lot of moisturizers. But the thing is, I use them on different days. They’re the easiest to switch around! And I switch them around depending on the condition of my skin or the weather! The weather plays a big part when it comes to skincare. Some days, the heat makes us oily, on other days, the cold makes our skin dry. That’s why I’m always prepared for anything! Rain or shine, my moisturizers got me covered!
Recently though, I’ve been having problems with my combination skin. My t-zone would be oily BUT I would have dry patches on other parts of my face which really annoyed me. And the moisturizer I was using at that time made my t-zone oilier and made my dry patches more apparent!!!!! Talk about double blehhh. And so I needed to find a cream that would not “overmoisturize” my t-zone but at the same time hydrate my dry patches. And so I researched again and I found this wonderful product!!!!
This cream does exactly what I need it to do. It leaves my look NOT TO dewy and at the same time, it fixed my dry patches!!!! Plus this is another product that works to calm down my skin. After putting it on, I don’t feel greasy or heavy, I feel light and hydrated. My skin feels plump and looks just the right amount of dewy which is THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD.
For all you oily people with the same problem as me, this might be the cream for you! Warning: it’s pricey and the smell is strong BUT for me, the results it gives makes it all worth it!
I got this from BeautyMNL! Check it out here! Love love ❤
