I am desert dry skin in autumn and winter, no ingredients has more important than glycerin. If a product has glycerin in the top 3 of the ingredient list, I would definitely like to put it in my pocket. Kiehls ultra facial cream and Guerlain abeille royale youth watery oil are two of my favorite products that their main ingredients contain glycerol. I have did a lot researches before buying Guerlain and read many negative comments. Many people think it is low cost performance, the main ingredients of this anti-aging oil is water and glycerol. The active ingredients are only vitamin E and royal jelly. It’s not worth the price of $95 for 30ml. however, some people around me still recommended it to me. So I decided to buy one to try. For now, I have been using the second bottle. I have to say it has ranked no.1 in my hydrating product list. Although the texture is oil, you do not feel greasy. On the contrary, using it can make you feel fresh. Every time when I use it, I totally enjoy in it. GUERLAIN - Bee Glow Youth Moisturizer
Kiehls ultra facial cream, the price is $18, 28ml and is composed of glycerol and squalane. No other moisturizing essence,only these two ingredients. Kiehls also uses natural plant oils, such as avocado oil, olive oil, almond oil to replace some classic moisturizing ingredients. It’s understandable that Kiehls advocates the natural way to enhance skin. Among these two moisturizing ingredients, glycerol ranks first. This makes this cream more hydrating. It has become an indispensable product for me in winter. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream
However, both of products have disadvantages. For Guerlain, if you don’t have such a big need for moisturizing, you don’t need to by this product. The high price performs at the effect of anti-aging, but the performance at this filed is very general. Only when I use it for an ordinary moisturizer, the effect can be satisfied. So after using this oil, I still use the essence again. And for Kiehls, although the capacity of 28ml is similar to thre guerlain, it is not durable. I ran out of one in a month and half. Whether it's Kiehls or Guerlain, I will buy back. Especially in winter, both products are essential. Except Kiehls and Guerlain, Lancome tonique confort, Lancome hydra zen, Fresh rose face mask are all products contain lots of glycerol that I have used. This ingredient can ensure your face present more smooth and hydrating.

Product Mentioned
My P.M Routine 👇🏻
I am combination dry skin, moisturizing has been set in the chief need. When I close to 30 years old, except moisturizing product, anti-aging products are also necessary. P.M sisley - BLACK ROSE CREAM MASK SHISEIDO - Eudermine Revitalizing Essence sisley - Ecological Compound The biggest difference between A.M and P.M is using the Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask. This mask features anti-aging and moisturizing. I use it for 3 times a week. The texture is cream and presents the light pink color. It gives off a smell of rose, very exclusive flavour. After cleaning up, to apply a thick layer on your skin, and wait for more than ten or twenty minutes to wash off. After washing off, you can obviously feel that your skin is smooth and brighten. It can clean the pores and make your skin glow. After cleaning the mask completely, I am going to apply Shiseido Eudermine. I have bought-back this toner for many times. If you are dry skin, I recommend you to go to buy it quickly! It can keep your skin in a newly-born condition! Collocation with Sisley ecological compound,the function of anti-aging and moisturizing are all covered by this routine. A.M SHISEIDO - Eudermine Revitalizing Essence GUERLAIN - Bee Glow Youth Moisturizer In the daytime, in addition to not applying Sisley black rose cream mask, I will replace Sisley Ecological Compound with Guerlain abeille royale youth watery oil, which is more hydrated than the previous one from my experience. Only ensure that the skin is moist enough, the foundation and subsequent cosmetics can help you skin present the best condition. Sisley Ecological Compound is for all skin types, and the Guerlain abeille royale youth watery oil is more suitable for dry skin people! In addition to season change, I will change my routine. Any other periods I have been using this routine for over three years.

My routine for coming spring❤️
My skin is dry in autumn and winter, and mixed in summer. The main skin concerns are acne marks and scars. So every time I do the skin care, the most concerned is how to do well in moisturizing and how to fade acne marks. My routine usually first use cleansing cream, then toner and cream, the last essence. Following I will share my personal routine. It has been spring recently, so the skin is not so dry as the winter, so I changed my cleansing foam to the Estee lauder. The name is super-pomegranate radiant energy cleansing foam. This kind of facial cleanser is very durable, and can cover the whole face with a little squeeze at a time. Its bubble is very rich, I use it with Luna face cleanser. After foaming, gently massage the whole face with the cleanser. Then wash the water with clean water. Your skin will feel fine and smooth, even brightening up. ESTĒE LAUDER - Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy 2-in-1 Cleansing Foam But it should be noted that this product is especially suitable for people with oily skin. For dry skin, it is best to use it only in spring and summer. Because of its powerful cleaning effect, if it is used in the case of particularly dry skin, it may cause skin sensitivity and redness. The next step is to use SK-II facial treatment essence. I'm a big fan of this essence. I've been using it in all seasons. Although it is essence, I have always used it as lotions. After cleansing the face, pour out a little on the cotton pad, pat the skin gently, it is very easy to be absorbed by skin. It can help skin lock moisture, and can add other functional essence. SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) After using SK-II essence, I will use Guerlain abeille royale youth watery oil. This step is the key to my moisturizing. The rich glycerin ingredients in the oil make my skin very moist. Finally, I use La Mer the concentrate to solve the acne mark problem of the skin. Its function is to smooth the redness of the skin and promote the self-healing of the skin. It is more suitable for season change or acne scar removal, there is not much need to use every day. But it does a good job on fade acne marks and scars. Generally, the newly born red acne can be faded after one night's application. GUERLAIN - Bee Glow Youth Moisturizer LA MER - The Concentrate I usually use this routine all year round. The biggest difference is that I may change the parts of facial cleanser and moisturizer. But for SK-II and La Mer, I will not change. I've been doing this for about three years before making up in the morning and skin care at night.

My favorite skincare products at the moment
Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cleanser Our face requires more delicate care, so it is important to remember that specific products for this region bring smoother substances in the formula. I love Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser because its gentle formula is packed with natural nutrients coming from Avocado Oil, Apricot Kernels, and Squalane all of which help to keep our skin healthy, clean, and moisturized without over-drying or stripping it. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream Sometimes the weather can be pretty harsh on our skin, and if you have dry skin like me, then you know how important it is to have a facial cream incorporated into your skincare routine. I started using Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream a couple of weeks ago, and almost immediately I could see the difference. Over the last couple of weeks, my skin has become much softener, smoother, and I haven't noticed any dry spots on my chicks anymore. Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution I also love Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment and their Corrective Dark Spot Solution. I confess that I had never used any eye cream or dark spots treatments before, but I am so glad I incorporated these into my skincare. I love that Kiehl's eye treatment is non-greasy, and does not irritate my eyes. It does a great job of keeping my eyes hydrated, and it has helped me to reduce my dark circles as well. Now the Corrective Dark Spot Solution is also a great skincare product. This serum has helped me reduce post-acne marks, which is a great deal for me! I love that it has been tested on all ethnicities and is suitable for all skin types. Keep in mind that your skincare routine does not need to be boring, and makes you feel as if it is an obligation. For example, I love to do my skincare while enjoying a nice cup of coffee in the morning, and at night I do it while I watch my favorite cartoons. Take it easy, and if you forget to do it one day, or even a couple of days, please don't go hard on yourself.

How do I keep my skin like this👩🏻
The second picture is taken with natural daylight,no makeup or filter added. The first picture is my daily routine. I have to be honest that I'm born with pretty good skin. I rarely have acne problems. But my skin is very dry and sensitive. I'm also allergic to ultra violet so my skin is very easy to be damaged by the sun. Therefore, my main focuses are always hydration and anti-sensitivity. I use different sunscreen products but I think the best way is still avoiding the sun in physical ways. Ever seen a Chinese girl with an umbrella on a sunny day? That’s me🙂 Here is my routine— Morning: Milk MAKEUP - Watermelon Brightening Face Mask I use this product first after washing my face. It helps me lighten my skin and feel refreshed. I generally love both milk mask sticks I have. #Winona - Natural Skin Care Anti-Redness Lotion[products]#[FiveStars] This is a Chinese brand that focuses on sensitive skins. I really love their products and this lotion ( it is actually more of a toner) is my favorite. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream I apply this both at day and night. I love how it can easily be absorbed into my skin and creates this natural glow on my face. Also I can still apply makeups on this. Night: Milk MAKEUP - Matcha Detoxifying Face Mask This mask stick is very easy to apply and so soothing. I enjoy using it after a long day. This product helps me with my redness and I talked more about it in another post. I use this twice a week. KORRES - Hydra Biome Probiotic Superdose Face Mask With Real Greek Yoghurt I also talked about this in another post. It is perfect for hydrating and correcting your skin. It does sting when you first apply it on though. I use this twice a week. Avène - Soothing Moisture Mask I use this occasionally when I feel that my skin is a little damaged or irritated. Avène’s products are really good for soothing you skin. If you have sensitive skin like me, their products can be your top choices. The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' I use this at the end of the routine and wear this to sleep. It is sticky so it’s not suitable for daytime. But I can really feel that my skin is taken good care of by this product. More tips: • Wash you face gently after staring at screens for a long time • Use some facial mist every time you feel dry on your skin • Don’t use masks too much! A lot of masks are not good when you use them everyday. • EAT MORE FRUIT! This is very important for your total health including your skin health. Snack on blueberries or an apple instead of chips! • Use more sunscreen if you are going out. • Even if you don’t have dry skin, you still always need hydration!

3 Fancy Face Creams
3 Fancy Face Creams
I got several real fancy face creams from my friends as b-day gifts. Shout out to my FAVORITE PEOPLE! 🙌Anyway, I have used a couple. And here are my thoughts. LA MER - LA MER Moisturizing Cream It has a thicker and heavier texture, so normally I will start using it late September for fall and winter use. It's deeply hydrating and nourishing while both soothing and calming. Lancôme Absolue Day Cream Valueset I've used a Lancôme Absolue series eye cream before a few years ago and it's still my favorite eye cream until now, so I have a really good impression of the Absolue series. It has a buttery texture, spreads easily, and is refreshing on the skin. Applying your sunscreen and foundation after using this day cream will leave your skin looking radiant. Being a functional facial cream, it's truly amazing to see how it's absorbed by the skin so easily and how refreshing it is! ARgENTUM - La potion infinie Restorative Day and Night Cream  I use this facial cream in spring and summer. It has a yogurt-like texture. You have to rub it between your palms for a bit longer before massaging it onto your face or else it doesn't absorb well. It's refreshing and it mattifies the skin. It's more suitable for summer use because it's not moisturizing enough for winter.

BeautyofJoseon Dynasty Cream �
BeautyofJoseon Dynasty Cream 💕 This cream lasted for 4 months and I was using this alternately with my Cosrx Snail All-In-One cream. This cream has a thick sticky honey-like consistency and for some reason it didn’t bother me. I love the scent, I thought it was relaxing. I’d use this mostly at night and on days where I feel a little extra when it comes to hydrating my skin. It targets signs of aging and it brightens the complexion as well! My skin didn’t feel heavy or greasy when I was using this and I could tell my skin was really absorbing all the goooodz. 😆 I even brought this with me despite its ‘not-so-travel-friendly’ packaging haha. Suuper perfect for the cold/winter days. I recently broke my Benton Fermentation Eye cream and I had transferred it to the Dynasty Cream jar haha! Would probably buy again but only if it’s on sale.. 😅 ✨ 4.3/5

Budget products under 💰40 👀
Budget products under 💰40 👀
KORA - Balancing Rose Mist I love giving myself a budget because I tend to go overboard with make up purchases if I do not give myself a budget. With make up, because of how quickly we go through them, they can add up really quickly. I’ve since learned to shop on a budget and am always on the lookout for great deals. Two products that I love under $40, is Kora Organics’s Balancing Rose Mist and Philosophy’s Renewed Hope in a Jar. These two are great products that help resolve dryness in your skin. I for one have always had dry skin issues and am always open to trying new products that would help me relieve my dryness. philosophy - Renewed Hope In A Jar Dry Philosophy’s moisturizing cream does wonders for my skin. It has a nice fruity smell and the cream isn’t too thick which makes it feel nicer on your skin. Thicker creams tend to steer me away because of how heavy it feels on your skin after application, so this cream being not too thick is very nice. Kora’s mist is a very nice refresher to refresh your skin throughout the day. Gently spray on your face can keep your skin hydrated and refresh your entire mood. The cool mist on your face makes you feel very good, so not only is your skin getting hydrated, but you can also feel the hydration. Both of these being under $40, is definitely a plus and helps keep it available for anyone who is working on a budget. There are definitely more expensive alternatives that may work better, but for the price, these definitely get the job done!

Creme de La Mer has been on my bucket list since I could remember. I thought I was going to die before I was able to use it. Luckily, my prayers were answered and I was sent LA MER - LA MER Moisturizing Cream to try. Product bio: Creme de La Mer is a luxury cream packed with an antioxidant lime tea and the Miracle Broth™ that is made to soothe, moisturize and hydrate. Warm the cream between your fingers until it is clear, then press it into your skin. It works best for drier skin. (It was the first La Mer product.) I did enjoy the process of using the cream. It feels luxurious, but I am not sure if it is because I know how much it costs. It does hydrate my skin well and leaves a satin-like feeling. I have been using it for about two weeks and I do like how it moisturizes my skin. I would give it four stars and recommend it, but I can’t because of the hefty price tag. Specs • Sephora.com: $90 (0.5 oz./15 mL)-$335 (2 oz./60 mL) • La Mer.com: $90 (0.5 oz./15 mL)-$2400 (16.5 oz./488 mL)

I’m not sure how I don’t have
I’m not sure how I don’t have a post dedicated to goodsciencebeauty yet! The 001-PU cream has been a constant in my morning routine everyday for months now. The main ingredients are Willow Bark and Amino Acids, and of course their trademark Good Silicon. I love that it helps against skin damage caused from pollution, especially living in the city. The 003-HY has been recently introduced into my routine daily now for almost a month. This one keeps my dry skin hydrated all day and I’m loving it! The main ingredients here are Hyaluronic Acid, Marine Omega-3, and of course their Good Silicon.

Is Korres worth trying? My answer is...
Is Korres worth trying? My answer is...
Lately I just bought two Korres products for basic hydrating and antioxidant purposes.  Korres Wild Rose oil KORRES - Wild Rose Brightening Absolute-Oil This facial oil is very interesting. It has good fluidity and is not as slippery as most ordinary facial oil. It has a faint rose scent. The thick layer of dried rose petals at the bottom of the transparent bottle makes it so beautiful. It's not oily on face but it's not absorbed very easily, also not very moisturizing. Korres Wild Rose Sauvage KORRES - Wild Rose Vitamin C Brightening 24H Moisturiser This smells like the wild rose facial oil. It has a relatively watery texture and is not very heavy. This cream is differentiated by skin type. Although I've bought the one for neutral-dry skin, I think it's not moisturizing enough. However, it may be because the oil content is relatively low and there's a little SPF in it. It also has quite a decent antioxidant effect. Overall, neither is moisturizing enough for dry skin to use, especially in winter. But still, worth a try.
