Skin Care Routine: January 2016


I'll be sharing with you my latest skincare routine and what I've been using since last year. There are a few "special care" products which I didn't include here such as products that I use for exfoliation, moisturizing, sun blocks, body care, makeup removers et cetera. Let me know if you want a post for those! These are just the products that I use on an everyday basis and so, they've become the "basic" essentials for me that I have to bring even if I'm going on a trip.


At the end of my day, my routine starts with removing makeup. My makeup removers aren't in this post but you can click here for the products I've used. I usually use Bifesta when I'm lazy or Banila Co when I have a lot of makeup on. I use Makeup Eraser when I'm traveling for a few days.

When my makeup is removed, I use the Safeguard Derma Sense facial wash for acne prone skin. You can see the review here. I've repurchased this a lot of times already and the bigger bottle is getting harder to find. I also suggested this to some of you guys and I'm glad to know that it also worked for you :)

After washing my face, I use the iWhite Korea Aqua moisturizer to bring back moisture in my skin. (Click here for the review) I love that the Safeguard facial wash doesn't dry my skin out but I also like the feeling of hydration and the cooling effect this moisturizer has.

For treating acne, I use the Pasjel Cherry Tender Night Cream (Click here for the review) or Purveyor of the Lush (Click here for the review). I've been using Pasjel last year but I ran out and I wasn't able to find the product because the store I bought it from moved. For the meantime, I used Purveyor of the Lush which is also designed for oily, acne-prone and blemished skin. Which is more effective? I would say both are equally good. Pasjel comes as a cream while Purveyor of the Lush comes as an oil. Both dry out my pimples with no peeling effect experienced. They both heal the skin and not just dry it out, so don't expect overnight results okay? Probably a few days to a week, depending on the condition of your acne.

As of now, I use Pasjel on weekdays. And on the weekends, I use Purveyor of the Lush -- or vice versa, it just depends on my mood. But using Purveyor of the Lush on a weekend just makes me feel like it's the weekend because it's pamper time. Haha.

Last for my night routine would be eye cream. My under-eye area is almost always dry and the QUICKFX Eye Lift Cream helps moisturize it. Not only does it help soothe my dry under-eyes, it also helps prevent dark circles. Click here for the review.

Meanwhile, my morning routine starts something like this. Safeguard facial wash, and then I use the iWhite Korea Aqua moisturizer, then QUICKFX eye cream to moisturize the under-eyes. I actually have a Smashbox under-eye primer but I really prefer the eye lift cream. Then I'll go with face primer and so on.

Hmmm. I believe that's about it. That's just some of the products that's always in rotation. Hope this post helps!
