Best SPF i’ve used this 2020! #KEEP COOL - Sooth
best thing I learned when i started seeking for skincare advise through internet is the importance of SPF. I have tried a lot, i mean it, a lot in the market from base make up with little to no spf (yikes!) tinted, heavily casted, sticky, chemical, physical. I always say if im gonna break my no buy, it’d be spf. i aswell always choose sunscreen if i get a chance to select what i wanna try & review from a brand. My search may be over for the best spf out there. Im currently using @keepcool_global Bamboo Soothe Essence SPF 50+ PA ++++KEEP COOL - Soothe Bamboo Sun Essence SPF50+ & she.is.good. . here’s why: no whitecast, doesn’t feel heavy, not sticky at all, easy to spread, doesn’t pile, reapplication isn’t a problem too even on top of make up. its like an emulsion, texture wise & tube packaging is perfect choice for that. it also doesn’t cling on hair, beard (the bearded husband approved this too), i also like the fact that this didnt make me oily throughout the day. i’ve had my fairshare of spf that did that. another important thing for me is the fact that this is oh so gentle even on my eye area. if you’re like me who likes putting spf on lids & undereye even on lips, you’ll like this one. . . This is a Chemical SPF that blocks UVA & UVB rays @keepcool_official used these UV filters for their Sun Essence. — Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate, high UVA protection and high photostability — Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine broad-spectrum covers the whole UVB and UVA range . . your girl did some research lol thank you @incidecoder, i got the info there cant fit it all here so if you wanna dig further, you can check the website — This contains 40% of Bamboo water it hydrates and soothes skin, there’s also cica extract coz we need all things soothing, 7 folds of HA, were all about hydration too while protecting our skin from UV rays, 3% B-Circadin™ it protects skin from blue light & has a powerful anti-fatigue effect (more info: about B-Circadin www.clariant.com) its also reef/coral safe, alcohol, essential oil & fragrance free . You can check @stylekorean_global @cosmetic_jolse @yesstyle @kmall24_official if you wanna try it. retails for 20-25 usd, check the site coupons/offers or use your friend’s code!

Tea Party with Drunt Elephant “The Littles”
Afternoon tea party with @drunkelephant The Littles™ ☕️ . . Took a break from my usual K-skincare routine to test this highly praised kit~ made everything easy as 1,2,3! . . I start my morning routine with Beste Jelly Cleanser this has a gel texture that lathers thinly and leaves the skin soft to touch. then I mix 1. 🍊C-Firma: beautifully formulated anti oxidant serum with L-Ascorbic & Ferulic Acids, Pumpkin Ferment Extract & Sodium Hyaluronate ; 2. 🍍B-Hydra: an ultra hydrating serum packed with pineapple ceramide & pro-vit B5 3. 🍃 Protini: a protein moisturizer comprised of peptides, amino acids & Pygmy water lily then I take my time on applying, gently massaging C-Tango multivitamin eye cream: texture is oh so dreamy, buttery, melts beautifully, absorbs well and leaves the skin around my eyes feeling silky and moisturized. Has 8-peptides, five forms of vitamin C & cucumber extract. Dream team am I right? Finishing it with the most important part of my am routine: Sunscreen. I use the Umbra Tinte Physical Sunscreen (SPF30) this gives me a sunkissed glow that I love so much! It has a tan-like tint in it and I couldn’t be more glad that it suits my skin so well. This beauty subtly covers my acne marks, blemishes. A great base too. It’s like I’m glowing from within and I’m living for that :) . . My pm routine is almost the same: i use my oil based cleanser, followed by Beste, tone, mix 1. 🧪 TLC Framboos Serum (2-3x a week; as a spot treatment): this is formulated with Glycolic,Lactic,Tartaric, Citric, Salicylic Acids blended with Raspberry Extract & horse Chestnut, 2.

Kbeauty & Drugstore make up
I’d say Kbeauty should be getting much love from western countries too. Most of them are honestly so good and affordable. They also have the cutest packaging always. My picks for Kbeauty are from too cool for school - Artclass by Rodin Shading some from Etude House, lots of Mamonde Lippies and blushes. If I were to choose from Drugstore brands, I’d always pick up wet n wild - MegaGlo Highlighting Powder this baby retails for less than 10usd and I everything I want from a highlighter. Could apply it anywhere I want! Second is a RIMMEL - Natural Bronzer Waterproof Bronzing Powder SPF 15 the pan is big and it’s honestly the same shades as the famous benefit - Hoola Bronzer Bash Value Set which btw is a good on the go shader but I’ll choose Rimmel over it beck I could get 5 pcs of rimmel bronzer and gift my friends than getting my self 1 tiny benefit bronzer that lasts abt 3 mos max

The hype made me buy this—-
The “Instagram/influencers made me buy this” SON & PARK - Beauty Water beauty water 💧 this was all over my feed when I first started this account. It said to be used as a : . • Cleansing water/ makeup remover — I use it at AM and rinse it off with water. At night, I use it before or after oil/balm cleanser, sometimes after second cleanser just so I’m sure skin’s all clean specially my hairline, neck & ear area. I then apply my toner using a cotton pad. . • Toner, Mist — I can’t bring myself to use it as a toner or mist in between my routine or anytime I want to reapply my sunscreen because it contains hefty amount of EOs, I don’t feel comfortable leaving it on my face Experience: this gives an instant soft, slightly moisturize skin as if I’ve applied a viscous toner. Refreshing, feels cool on skin, takes off dirt,dead skincells, light make up (aka sunscreen, blush, eye make up but not so good with waterproof mascara and liptint stain), doesn’t sting. I did not have any irritation using this as I always wash it off. Didnt see any significant effect on skin too. . . I wanna love it coz she isn’t cheap, loved by many, full size bottle is 350 ml would be great if I could actually use it as a toner/mist, the packaging is ‘instagrammable’ but couldn’t give my full love coz of EOs. It does contain rose water & witch hazel tho plus papaya extract that is good for gentle exfoliation. This cute famous beauty water is something I don’t really need in my routine but I enjoy the short term effect. Fancy stuff, looks good on my vanity. Will not repurchase. Still glad I’ve tried it. If you wanna give this a try & got some extra $$, I think it’s better to get the 60ml bottle first and just see if you can use it even after double cleansing. #sonandpark #sonandparkbeautywater #beautywater

Has a hint of citrus scent that can be too much for those who are scent-sitive but i like my skincare with refreshing scent in it (sue me lol) Materials of these pads are really good. Remains in its shape even after I’m done swiping my whole face. There is a mini transparent plastic tweezer which you can use to pick the pads.

Dear Klairs, Gentle Black Sugar Polish This became an essential in my weekly skincare routine/exfoliation! I was skeptical to use this as I have used Honey & Sugar Wash Off Mask from different brand and it didn’t work for me though they claimed it supposed to be moisturising & gentle. Also, the scent of that brand was a bit strong for my liking. Knowing Klairs is a SoKo brand that focuses on gentle yet effective on all skin types specially those with sensitive skin, made me bought this physical scrub. Plus points are they are cruelty free, no parabens, no alcohol and artificial coloring. I actually prefer chemical exfoliators than physical ones but I tend to overused it (guilty 🙋🏻♀️) I need to educate myself more about acids. I use it after washing my face with low PH cleanser or hydrating cleanser. I mix a few drops of witch hazel and water and focus on my t-zone. It is not harsh and the granules melts away while scrubbing in circular motion leaving a honey like consistency. Result: instant glow, pores are less visible, baby soft skin, dry patches are gone, no irritation and my favorite is when I proceed with toner, there’s no residue on my cotton pad and sometimes, I can see my blackheads ready to come out and leave my forehead. Final thoughts: I am still not knowledgeable enough with Exfoliators and would love to try different kinds. I love this and even have a back up of this along with other physical exfoliator from diff brands. I’d love to explore more on exfoliators. I think clay masks are good for acne prone/sensitive skin so when I feel like Sugar Scrub is too harsh for me, I switch to Clay mask or even hydrating mask/pack (aloe & rose gel) and sheet masks.
dear, klairs-Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish
〰️ How satisfying it is to open up new skincare and use it for the very first time. Will do that tonight! . 〰️ I always prefer Cleansing Water than balm or oil. The only cleansing balm and oil I tried were trial sizes (Trilogy, Innisfree Olive, Klairs) which I enjoy using as I can actually see how it helps lifting up the impurities, make up and dust my face collected through out the day. . 〰️ I have been eyeing banilaco cleansing balm original for a while now because it’s loved by many and the reviews are mostly all positive. Aaaand, ermmm, also because it’s pink. 🌸 Hi new baby, pretty please, work on me.🧚🏼♀️
