Moisturization secret for dry＆sensitive skin
I thought I was good at making choices, but when it came to picking up appropriate products for my dry and sensitive skin (24), I got lost being overwhelmed by numerous products in the market. I once got advertised by SAs, friends, advertisements, TV commercials, etc., and bought plenty of products. After lots of trials over my skin, I finally found this routine below safe, secure, and effectively nourishing, which is what I am going to elaborate on. FILORGA - NCTF-Essence Supreme Regenerating Lotion Essence This lotion is good at moisturizing, for it contains the ingredient hyaluronic acid. It is under the famous series of Filorga and uses water sensors, AQUA-MX technology. I usually apply it after cleanser. The texture is lightweight, and it does not feel oily at all (on this point it prevails as 5％ of all the lotions that I have used, especially much better than Lancome Tonique Confort) I guess this is why my face hardly gets irritated since I quit other and changed into this one. Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Capsules Advanced Each bottle contains 90 capsules, and they should be used within a day, better instantly after opening one. It is not lightweight, but I can accept it as it actively strengthens my skin’s moisture barrier. It is biodegradable, fragrance, and preservative-free, which dramatically reduces the chances of getting allergic or being troubled by eczema, acne, or other problems for my sensitive skin. I recommend to use it at night before sleep, and it will reveal a look full of radiance the other day. la prairie - Skin Caviar Luxe Cream It is of high price comparatively, but it is worth every penny you pay. I was advertised aggressively by one of my friends who shares the same skin type. I try this for two years, and it gives my face a silky look. It is instrumental in eliminating the feeling of tightness on my face. I love this, and these two years, my face gets more and more radiance. This combination of products has been used for six months. All are nourishing and moisturizing enough for dry skin without triggering any skin problems. Recommend them to you, but make sure you try samples before buying them.

Perfect Oil products for autumn,winter seasons!!!
An absolute godsend for dry, flaky skin. My skin is a combination of dry and oily and it's also sensitive, it works really perfectly on my face. These are an absolute godsend. I can't believe I've never tried these before. These are 100% worth the price. Excellent for hypersensitive skin. I have some eczema and Rosacea on my face and this completely soothes it, moisturized, and a little brightens. Just use it for a week, the problems have been alleviated. Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Capsules Advanced This product is a wonderful moisturizer and though expensive, it's worth the cost. I moisturize with these ceramide oil capsules every night after cleansing my face. It's expensive but worth the results. I've been using this product along with the ceramide cream for over 20 days. (Glides on my skin like a dream) Really leaves my skin soft and smooth. I've found it's also effective in removing wrinkles and whitening, and plz don't forget to massage your face well，it will make it work better on your face. This order arrived within days. I enjoy using these capsules from EA although I find them sometimes difficult to twist open with my arthritic hands. I usually cut the tip off and use one two or three times, I don’t feel that the whole capsule needs to be used at once to get the same results. (if u have oily skin). But I adore the way just taking one whole capsule before I go to bed, （I use it on myself, all over my face, neck, and lips as my night treatment, then massage), then will wake up to wholesome beautiful very hydrated and non-greasy skin at all! HABA - Squalane ll Compare to the other Haba Oil, it also makes my skin feel so smooth! A lot of others say it’s oily and initially, it is; however, if you just wait a minute or two, it soaks into your skin leaving it soft and smooth. (Using every time before putting my face cream on and makeup.) By contrast，I prefer to use it on my neck，it could help ease my necklines. (EA one is really versatile) Really moisturizes my skin very well, not too oily. Both of them, all perfect oily products for the autumn, and winter seasons. Highly Recommend.
Ceramides and pre-makeup face base
Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base I discovered this product from the many Instagram stories of Lorna Luxe, she’s an English beauty and style content creator who loves to do get-ready-with-me type of Instagram stories on a daily basis. She featured Bobbi Brown face base on her stories so I swiped up to know how much it is, then I did a bit of research about the product. It is expensive for a primer but it did not take me long to decide that I needed this product in my life, so I bought it and never did I once feel regret about purchasing this cream. Here’s why. My skin is dry combination; most of the time it’s dry, leaving my cheeks and my forehead feeling tight. I particularly hate it when I have to apply foundation and my skin is just not feeling it. When I tried on this product, it directly moisturized my face, and plus, I love the scent. It smells a bit lemony and fresh, which I love. I try to stay away from products with fragrance cause I have sensitive skin but this doesn’t really give me redness or any sort of inflammation. The product goes on smooth, and glides easily even on the driest areas of my skin, which is my chin and forehead. I like the feeling of my foundation against my skin after every use of this luxurious primer. I won’t even call it just a primer cause it feels like a moisturizer for me that lets all the makeup products glide on very easily and seamlessly on your face. I love love love this product, and even if it is expensive, it’s something that I will continue buying. Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum While I’m not so into ceramides and anti-aging products, especially when they come in capsule form that I have to tear apart so I can put the product on my face, I took a flyer on this one. And mind you, it’s a very very expensive try. I think, though, that the capsule form is ideal for traveling. I discovered it through my sister, who, 4 years younger than me, is such an advocate of anti-aging products. So when she went out of the country early this year, I asked her to buy me a bottle at the airport cause I can’t justify the post-tax price tag of this product. I’ve been using it for months now but I admit, I don’t use it on a daily basis cause I like to have a rotation of my skincare products in my routine. I particularly noticed the dark circles under my eyes vanishing little by little. I don’t have eye bags but I tend to have dark undereye circles that become especially dark when I don’t get enough sleep or when I eat too much chocolates and chips. A week after using this, I noticed that the skin around my eyes appeared brighter so that made me happy knowing I didn’t waste my money on this product. My skin looked and felt plumper as well. I think it was the ceramides working their magic. I like to use it before my moisturizer, kind of like a serum. It glides on smoothly and does a good job of moisturizing and plumping my skin. Will I purchase again? If someone can buy for me duty-free, it’s definitely a yes!
Game Changer!😍😍 Repair Skin Barrier? Anti-Aging? All You Need Is..
I have mature-dry skin which is neither sensitive nor acne-prone. I have no visible pores or acne marks, so my main skin care concern is repairing my skin barrier and anti-aging. The following products are the ones I like the most this year. And I highly highly recommend these to people who have similar concerns. The Ginza Creamy Cleansing Foam I insisted on and only ever used amino acid-based cleansing foams until I started trying the Ginza cleansing foam. With the benefits of a soap-based cleansing foam, it cleanses well and can even remove sunscreen and concealer. It creates a soft and rich foam that washes off easily. Yet, at the same time, it's mild and not irritating at all, just like an amino acid cleansing foam, and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Guerlain Orchidée Impériale The Toner As a high-performance toner, although it also has a slightly thick texture, it is quickly absorbed and doesn't irritate the skin. Moisturizing and quite long-lasting, it keeps your skin fully hydrated while enhancing the absorption of your following skin care products. FILORGA - NCTF-Essence Supreme Regenerating Lotion Essence It has a light pink, thicker texture which is suitable for dry skin. I usually pour some directly onto my palm and it's easily absorbed by the skin. It's moisturizing and non-greasy and keeps the skin super hydrated. You can also use it as a water essence and it can be considered a drugstore alternative of the Orchidée toner. SKINCEUTICALS - Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier Serum This serum helps to amplify the skin's hyaluronic acid levels. Besides the main ingredient, proxylane, it also contains 3 types of hyaluronic acid, 0.2% purple rice extract and 2% licorice root extract. Its main feature is skin firming and anti-aging. It has a thick texture and is very moisturizing,leaving your skin smooth and complexion brightened after use. It is non-irritating and can also be used around the eyes.

Amazing Cream & Disappoint Cream
I have dry skin with an increasing demand for anti-aging functions. I have tried multiple products, some solve dryness and relieve wrinkles or expression lines on the face while others not. Out of all those products, I choose three face creams to share and rank them accordingly: 1.La Prairie Luxe Cream la prairie - Skin Caviar Luxe Cream Just as its name indicates, this cream is rich in caviar which is a rare ingredient for skin care because of its relatively high price. ＄550 for one, it provides the utmost concentration, utmost hydration and firming action never achieved in a La Prairie cosmetic moisturizer. I rank it first for the following reasons: It instantly gives my look a radiant and notably softer once applied. This kills almost 99％ creams of other brands which usually take longer to absorb and take effect; It does correct my tone, resulting in a silken smoothness delightedly felt; within months, my skin literally glows and I find it reinforces the skin’s vitality and maintains it in a good condition. 2.Casmara Longevity Recovery Cream This is not sold individually. Actually it is a cream applied before and after the use of the peel-off mask. Casmara is a renowned Spanish brand that wins its popularity among all beauty centers around Valencia, a metropolitan in Spain. I bought it in a drugstore when I took my vacation in Valencia and immediately tried it at the hotel. The longevity cream is applied before the mask to protect the skin from too much rubbing. It functions as a lock-in helper to strengthen the moisturizing after the mask. I love this but unfortunately, it has to be bought along with the Casmara mask, otherwise, I will buy more. 3. Valmont Prime 24 Prime 24 Hour VALMONT - Prime 24 Hour This one is really not worth the hype. From ingredients, texture to function neither stands out. I really cannot figure out why it became so popular overnight. Maybe it is the concept it sells to the customers that it provides tier-1 quality because it is a Sweden brand which means security, good quality, and luxury. But don’t get fooled by this. If you have ＄150 to invest in your beauty, you’ll definitely find something much better.
Are These Creams Worth The HYPE? My answer is...
I usually buy high-end products that can deal with more than one skin problem. For example, I am 24 with dry skin, so moisturizing products with the anti-aging functions will cater to my taste. And I buy two versatile products and only to find the less priced one with better effect. I’m here to share my view on those two hyped creams that I have been used to. La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream la prairie - Skin Caviar Luxe Cream It is of high price comparatively but it is worth every penny you pay. I was advertised aggressively by one of my friends who shares the same skin type. I try this for 2 years and it gives my face a silky look. I am amazed by how it eliminates the feeling of tightness on my face. I love this and these two years my tone becomes more even and I get more radiance on my face. I believe that many critics may say this product is not worth the price, but for me, it really systematically changes my skin condition. I feel less tight and dry even without using this product and wrinkles seem to be less visible. I believe La Prairie has tried its best to provide what it can to customers within its capability. Filorga hyaluronic cream FILORGA - Hydra Filler MAT Cream FILORGA - Lift-Structure Ultra-Lifting Cream The story between me and Filorga seems like a coincidence. I searched online one day for an effective moisturizing ingredient and bumped into this brand and its technological NCEF line. Hyaluronic acid is the spirit of these two creams I have constantly been using. The overall experience of using this brand exceeds 98％ of similar products: lightweight, easy to absorb, and postpone aging. It does not add radiance by evening your tone, it gives you a fresh look by plumping your face, making it look like full of collagen. (The difference between the two creams lies in its focus, with hydra-filler mat more on moisturizing and lift-structure more on anti-aging) The prices for those three products seem above average, with ＄550,＄60 and＄90 respectively. Overall, I believe every product is popular for one reason. Many of hyped products can stand the test of time and win overwhelming good feedback as the two mentioned in the passage.
wrinkles go away
I’m always one to be open to trying new products to see how they can benefit my skin. If it doesn’t work, I simply move onto the next product. If I ever come across something that works extremely well, I’ll add it to my list of must haves and will usually not steer away from that product unless I happen to stumble across a better working product. ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Limited Edition ESTĒE LAUDER - Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Crème For my skin care routine to keep my skin hydrated, I’ve consistently been using Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night repair and their Revitalizing Supreme+. These two have worked great in keeping my skin hydrated which helps keep my dry skin away and whenever my skin is more hydrated, I look younger. These two also have great anti-aging affects on your skin, and you can really see the difference after a few applications. Your lines and wrinkles start to disappear after a few application, that along with the more hydrated skin really makes your skin feel amazing. The Revitalizing Supreme+ creme is non-acnegenic, so it doesn’t clog my pores and helps me reduce my acne. This works great with the advanced night repair because that serum is oil free. I’ve always had acne prone skin, so using these two has helped my acne and even helped reduce breakouts. I highly recommend these two products if you have acne prone skin, dry skin, or have dehydration. These two products go hand in hand and will work wonders for anyone with similar skin issues as me. Results may not show right away, but constant application will show great results!
ESTĒE LAUDER-Advanced Night Repair Limited Edition
Products for sensitive skin
My skin is so sensitive and it always goes red spontaneously. To repair and protect my skin, I have tried thousands of treatments. Among all of these products, I find that Elizabeth Arden and HELENA RUBINSTEIN together with LAMER do work. Now, I would like to share them with you. Elizabeth Arden RETINOL Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum As we know, Elizabeth Arden is famous for its Golden Capsules Serum, which is named as Daily Youth Restoring Serum. If you would like to try Elizabeth Arden to repair your sensitive skin, then please buy RETINOL Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum. Believe it or not, the latter one would give you a better experience since it has as strong repairing power as the golden one with a less greasy texture. Personally, I always use it after cleanser and I can easily find that it can reduce skin redness to a large extent. HELENA RUBINSTEIN POWERCELL SKINMUNITY cream I have used HELENA RUBINSTEIN POWERCELL SKINMUNITY cream for more than three years, and I love it so much. What fascinates me most is its pleasant scent with its suitable texture, which is not so thick but moist. I usually apply it to the sensitive area and it is quite effective in relieving and soothing the skin. LAMER moisturizing cream I have used LAMER moisturizing cream for more than five years, and I can say that it is the most brilliant skincare product I have ever used. It is really helpful in soothing and hydrating the skin. There is no exaggeration to say that it can heal most of the skin problems. If you are worried about the skin dryness, please use it. If you are annoyed by the skin redness, please use it. If you are irritated by the acne marks, please use it since it contributes to fading them. Unlike another cream which can be applied on the face directly, you have to warm LAMER cream for a few seconds between the fingers until it becomes translucent, then press gently into the skin. Although the method of application is a little bit complicated, the effectiveness of LAMER cream would let you ignore this tiny shortcoming. Conclusion For me, I always change the order of applying skincare products due to the skin condition. But most of the time, I would use Elizabeth Arden Serum as an introduction of follow-up skincare products and I would choose HR cream in the daytime while applying LAMER in night. I recommend these three products enthusiastically since each of them would never let you down.
LA MER-LA MER Moisturizing Cream
Sensitive Skin? Don't Worry! I Discovered The Best Routine!
I have sensitive skin which often causes flaky skin and skin redness. However, ever since I found a skin care routine that suits me, my skin condition has stabilized. You can try this out if you also have sensitive skin. LA MER - The Treatment Lotion I always use this lotion after cleansing. It is said to contain 99% serum plus 1% water, and 3 to 4 drops of it is enough for the entire face. It is suitable for oily, dry, and sensitive skin as it's really moisturizing and refreshing, leaving your skin feeling really soft and delicate. CLARINS - Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate At first, I bought this double serum when I saw a blogger I like using it. Its two-phase formula is quite moisturizing and is suitable for all skin types. It contains lots of anti-oxidant ingredients, glycerin and other moisturizing ingredients. It forms anoil film on your face when first applied but it's soon fully absorbed. Lancôme Blanc Expert Melanolyser Integral Whiteness Spot Eraser Although this spot eraser is considered a whitening serum, it's suitable for sensitive skin as well. However, I don't apply it to my entire face, only on dull spots and it really brightens the skin. A white creamy texture, it is scent-free, non-greasy, can be easily absorbed, and can also be used as a moisturizing lotion. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration This is a savior for dry-sensitive skin as it not only repairs the skin barrier of sensitive skin, it also keeps skin moisturized. Emulsify and apply it to reduce redness during allergy flares. It is considered a drugstore alternative of La Mer by many bloggers.

Daily routine for sensitive oily skin in summer
In summer, my skin is normal to oily with a bit of breakouts all on my cheeks which are a mix of hormonal and I guess bacterial breakouts (if that’s what you call it?). I’ve been using these two products for over 2 months now and I’ve noticed significant reduction in my pores and acne, and inflammation/redness. I also always find when I wake up that my skin is very well hydrated without it feeling greasy. 1. fresh Louth Youth Preserve face cream with super 7 complex Love this moisturizer. I first got it years ago from Sephora as a small free gift. It is very light and has the most pleasant and soothing smell. Smells like light cucumber fresh out of the spa! It does not irritate me at all around the eye area, like other moisturizers can. It keeps my skin feeling soft and healthy. I would totally recommend trying this! This high-potency face cream delivers unstoppable moisture for soft, supple skin with a lightweight texture and spa-like scent. Powered by antioxidant lotus root extract and vitamin E in fresh’s super 7 complex, it fights the first signs of aging and creates a perfectly smooth canvas for makeup. 2. The Ordinary 100% organic cold-pressed rose hip seed oil This formulation uses 100 percent pure rosehip seed oil— rich in linoleic acid, linolenic acid, and pro-vitamin A—that is both cold-pressed and organic. This oil has been shown to reduce signs of photo-aging and many other skin conditions. This product is vegan, cruelty-free, cold-pressed, organic, and formulated without water, alcohol, silicone, nuts, and gluten. Rose Hip Seed Oil is completely unrefined and imparts a natural scent partly due to its high omega fatty acid content. This scent is not an indication of rancidity. Rose Hip Seed Oil that does not have a scent is refined and offers reduced benefits. It comes in UV-protective packaging.
💓1+1>2? You may use the combo in the wrong way....💓
I have very dry skin and so when I saw a lot of bloggers recommending using LA MER - The Treatment Lotionwithsisley - Ecological Compound for better results, I purchased the combo. It felt just average when I first used them and Sisley even caused acne breakouts, so I stopped using them. However, after a while, I found the correct way of using them: La Mer The Treatment Lotion smells great, has a very runny consistency, and is absorbed easily by the skin. I always apply it twice, first warming it in between my palms and gently pressing it onto my skin, then pouring a few drops onto my palm and gently patting it onto my skin. 3 to 4 drops are enough for the whole face. It's moisturizing, maintains the balance of my skin, and also repairs it. I'll definitely repurchase it! Sisley Ecological Compound has a more refreshing texture. Applying directly on the skin may cause acne breakouts, so normally I'll warm and emulsify it between my palms, then gently press it onto the skin. I haven't had any acne breakouts since then and the result is not only great but also long-lasting. It goes perfectly with La Mer The Treatment Lotion! The moisturizing effect can be maximized usingESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex in between them. This is an awesome combination for dry skin. If you have your fav combo, share with me! If you have any questions or suggestions hmu 😘💖‼️

Use skincare product-wise! Use the different product in the morning and at night – for oily or combination skin
The AM skincare routine aims at protection, while the PM skincare routine aims at refreshing and restoration. Use different products for a different purpose! I have combination skin with T area oil while other areas normal. To avoid acne, blackheads, and coarse pores, I am supposed to focus on hydrating, so I adapt my skincare routine for the different time slots. Here goes my daily skin routine: #AM# ORIGINS - Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream From my experience, in the daytime, the skin may get oily after movement or because of the temperature. Unlike the PM cream, this one is a gel texture. It feels comfortable and balanced once you put it on the face, and you could absorb the cream easily after a little massage. The key ingredients include imperata cylindrica’s roots (desert plant extract) and glacial glycoprotein (derived from sea glacier), both provide immediate and lasting hydration. #PM# LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum If your age is 25+, this award-winning (over 170) serum is a must! Although the selling point of the serum is anti-aging, you can not ignore the other effects. After a month, I feel that my skin gets smoother. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream I use Ultra Facial Cream cream at night which contains squalane, and the creamy texture helps the skin build a barrier and keep moisture. I tried the routine for over two years. The greasy problem improved a lot, and now I rarely suffered from it. It is vital to stick to the routine unless you are allergic. The skin condition got significantly better after three months. Furthermore, keep a healthy lifestyle also helps to improve skin condition.
