I’m Thankful for the Morning Glow
ESSENCE: SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) I’ve been using this for years, I get it when I’m at a layover in Hong Kong or Korea so I get it significantly cheaper. However have I noticed anything? No. Nothing bad, nothing good. It is basically fermented rice for over $200. I have found so many dupes I’d like to try! NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essenceor MISSHA - Time Revolution The First Treatment Essence Rx I are said to be better products for a fraction of the price so I will be buying when I run out!!! Fermented ingredients are wonderful for brightens, refining pores, hydration, improving texture, and is full of beneficial enzymes and peptides VITAMIN C: MAELOVE - Glow Maker Everyone needs vitamin c, and this is very reasonably priced, has a great formulation with vitamin E and ferulic acid, non sticky, and just disappears into the skin. TIP: Put in the refrigerator. I found that oxidising is just the nature of ascorbic acid, so this will prolong the life of your product! CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream I thought this would be too heavy, especially in the daytime. Nope! You can apply a little or a lot, it has Ceramides and totally does the job of moisturising and protecting that skin barrier, especially if you exfoliate a lot or use tretinoin. Do buy the one with the pump though! Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Liquid Sunblock Broad Spectrum SPF 70 I love this because it’s super lightweight and rubs in so quickly! It does not pill, and I’m all for inexpensive sunscreen because you need A LOT. Ignore influencers who use a “pea size amount”. Not for sunscreen!!!! Slather it on!! Great sunscreens from Neutrogena are also Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Sunscreen SPF 50 and Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 55 . Dying dying dying to try PURITO - Centella Green Level Safe Sun!!! ✨✨Keep glowing!!✨✨

My Simple Ritual: Update
Well... since I’ve been MIA for almost 9 months, I figured it was time to post an updated skincare routine! Quarantine, esthiology school, and the political climate have brought major changes into my life, thought process, and my skincare routine. Practically everything has changed in my ritual, except for one product (my tried-and-true Foreo). Some are revisits to products that I’ve used before but I wanted to give second chances, and some are brand new interests! Before we start, let me say that, in the future, there will be in-depth reviews of each product listed. Let’s get started: Cleanse 🧼: This has become a 2-part process for me. I’ve been using the BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Antioxidant Cleansing Oil and the OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser in order to double cleanse. I used to think that double cleansing was too much for my sensitive skin, but that has proven to be false. I love these 2 products a lot! Especially the Ole Henriksen cleanser. I’ve used the Biossance cleansing oil in the past, and just decided to give it another try. I like it, but I just can’t justify the price (hence the 3 stars). Nothing wrong with it though! It does it’s job. Exfoliate ✨: To help aid in exfoliation and deliver a powerful cleanse, I’ve been using theFOREO - LUNA mini 2 with my water-based cleanser. I don’t think this little guy is going anywhere anytime soon! This is a powerful tool that’s definitely worth the investment! Treat 🧪: Reunited and it feels SO good! Here comes 2 more products that I’ve tried in the past and still love. Here we have the SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) and the DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream . I love the simplicity of the essence and how potent and hydrating it is. I honestly wish I would’ve bought a bigger bottle, but I didn’t know if I, or my skin, would love it. But here we are, regretful. The retinol from Drunk Elephant has reached cult status, and for good reason. Moisturize 💦: The ALGENIST - Advanced Anti-Aging Repairing Oil has won over my heart and soul! This product is non-comedogenic AND has a very light form of retinol in it. Y’all know how much I adore a good facial oil to seal in everything. Protect 🕶: No one, and I mean no one, can argue that SPF is the most important topical product. The Supergoop! - Zincscreen 100% Mineral Lotion SPF 40 PA+++ seems to have been sent straight from heaven. I’m glad I found my way back to this product. This works way better for me than the Krave Beauty sunscreen, for sure. And it’s tinted! Needless to say, my skin is GLOWING greater than the pits of hell thanks to these products. And, as an esthetician, that’s important to me. I loved my old ritual, but I wanted more enhancement. I simply felt like there was better out there. I feel like a new soul.

Best Anti-Aging Moisturizer from Japan – Availab
Since I have lived in Asia for many years before, Korean and Japanese skin care brands have always been one of my favorites products to have on the vanity counter. Their formulas are extra gentle and suitable for my sensitive skin. One of my favorite top brands is SK-II, a homegrown Japanese brand known for its “Miracle Water” or a trademarked fermented yeast ingredient call Pitera. I have combination skin, meaning my skin is dry and sometimes experience flakes on the cheeks, while oil and shine appears on other areas, especially on the forehead, nose and chin. As I am also over 30 years old now, I am incorporating anti-aging products in my skincare regime. One of the best products I have using right now is the SK-II R.N.A.POWER Radical New Age Moisturizer. SK-II - R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream The rich moisturizer is a nourishing complex of pitera with hydrolyzed soy and yeast extracts to make skin firm and radiant from within. I love how the silky texture is perfect for both cold and hot climates, resulting in no sticky residue when applied under make-up. Other ingredients in the mix such as RNArchitect Complex and Niacinamide, a type of vitamin B3 complex, also helps with gettig a more even skin tone and complexion. I usually apply this luxurious cream after traveling and flying to soothe my parched skin. I have also noticed that a week is all it takes for this cream to work its magic in the skin! I can definitely see a noticable glow and smoother texture. To use, take a pearl-sized amount of cream and dot onto forehead, cheeks and chin. Massage evenly over face and neck in outward and upward strokes. Gently press and pat with your palms until completely absorbed. For the price tag of US$235 for a 80ml (2.7oz) jar, it can be quite expensive for a twice-a-day cream, so I use this sparingly in the evening about four times a week although the cream can be used twice a day. Tip: order the cream on SK-II website now and also receive a complimentary one sheet of SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, a 30ml bottle of Facial Treatment Clear Lotion, and a 2.5ml jar of SK-II R.N.A.POWER Cream.

People Told Me Olay Is A Dupe To SKII And I Found...😶😶😶
I'm 23 years old and I recently felt that my skin was losing elasticity, so I decided that it's time for me to tackle premature aging by trying a tightening facial cream. I followed the herd and bought the very popular OLAY - Regenerist Micro Sculpting Cream which is known as a cheaper alternative of SK-II - R.N.A. Power Radical New Age Cream. I have friends that told me that this is the worst facial cream they've ever used, but I didn't believe them until I used it myself and felt utterly disappointed. It has an uneven texture and although it's scented, it smells cheap and gives the impression of being loaded with preservatives. It is also hard to spread and tends to spread unevenly. I happened to pass by SK-II's counter one day and tried the SK-II R.N.A. POWER Radical New Age, which was a way better product upon comparison. SK-II R.N.A. POWER Radical New Age has a really even texture, spreads easily, and is very moisturizing. I can feel my skin becoming softer and more tender. I bought it straightaway after the beauty assistant tried it on me. SK-II R.N.A. POWER Radical New Age managed to maintain the stability of my sensitive skin even during season change, with my skin redness and rash nowhere to be seen. Instead, it left my skin with a translucent glow. So I don't recommend cheaping out on good skincare products with their affordable alternatives which will never offer the same results. Do you know any dupes for SK-II? How do you like Olay? Comment here!🥰🥰

👌3 Steps - Rush Morning Skincare
I feel like I’m always in a hurry every week day morning. Can morning skincare be simple and effective? While I am rushing for everything, I really don’t have much time for skincare. After a year of finding the most effective way, here is my 3 step morning skincare routine that I found most simple and effective. The first step obviously, is to clean the skin. Some people just wake up and rinse their face. If you really have good skincare routine the night before and you don’t feel like you need to. I am a combination dry, and I always wake up with an oily and dull face. I have to use cleanser in the morning for removing those natural oil. If you are like me, I suggest you try a cleanser with actives in it. ESTĒE LAUDER - Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Foam Cleanser/Purifying Mask Some of the ingredients that it contains are like Myristic Acid, Glycerin, Behenic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, that can effectively removes impurities without drying, leaving skin smooth. I like it is making my skin fresh and soft in the morning. Next is a toner. SK-II - Facial Treatment Clear Lotion Toner This toner is very gentle. For my morning routine, I try to find something that is not too heavy but still moisturizing for my skin. It was really moisturizing and my skin became smooth. This one really brightened my complexion and reduced redness, and my skin felt plump and hydrated. Normally at this step my skin is already damp and soft, I still go with a moisturizer for extra hydration. ESTĒE LAUDER - Revitalizing Supreme Light+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme Oil-Free Since I will be wearing makeup and stay inside with air conditioning running all day, I want a cream that helps to prevent dehydration. I just put a bit in my hands, rub my hands together to melt it, and gently pad it into my face and neck. By rubbing and padding, you can feel it absorbs quickly and does not leave a layer at the skin at all. You can also add sunscreen after this step prevent from UV damage. And this is my simple and effective 3 step morning routing. It saves a lot of time for me in the morning and still keep my skin moisturized throughout the day.

Please critique my skincare routine!
Disclaimer: very new to this app, not exactly sure if i’m doing this right 😂 I was hoping that a kind soul could give me some feedback on my skincare routine! I’m not sure whether or not to add or remove any of these, so any help is much appreciated! Step 1: To cleanse, I use the Murad - Clarifying Cleanser ! On days I wear makeup, I do a double cleanse adding sulfur soap since it’s much gentler on the skin. I do one cleanse in the morning, and two at night. This process sometimes does leave my skin feeling a bit dry, especially after a double cleanse, but on their own, have worked wonders for treating my pesky mask acne :) Step 2: I use the SK-II - Facial Treatment Clear Lotion Toner I dab it on a soft face towel and use it on my T zone, as well as any acne spots I have. I absolutely looove this product and have definitely seen results as described, other than my minor breakouts here and there Step 3: I use the SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) For this, I do a couple shakes and pat all over my face. I’ve read a lot of mixed reviews about this product, and whether or not it’s just a gimmick, but since using this product, I have rarely had excessively dry or oily skin, and it has definitely evened out my skin tone, and (before covid/mask wearing) minimized pores! Step 3: (Alternate) I couldn’t find product information on here, but now and then I will use the Ambre Blends Skin Tonic. This is a local Midwest company that started as a fragrance line that I have been wearing for years! I tried the skin tonic when they first released during a time when my skin was extremely dry and flaky. It gave me soooo much hydration and the smell is absolutely amazing! However, it wasn’t so great at keeping my breakouts to a minimum, and I haven’t been able to tell which ingredients caused that. They pride themselves on natural ingredients and I included a slide of the contents of the bottle! Step 4: For under eye serum, I use L'OCCITANE - Immortelle Divine Eye Cream I have extremely dark circles, and I decided to give this a try and it definitely has reduced them a bit! It’s a very soothing and light cream, but I do wish it showed better results! I do this entire routine twice a day, and so far it has seemed to work out for me! I still go through periods of oily skin, and lately with having to wear a mask all the time, my pores have appeared a lot larger :( I also have a constant battle with maskne, but I do occasionally use acne patches ( Rael - Miracle Ratch ) The last slide also shows the product I use when I do an occasional face mask. I try to keep this to a minimum, at least 2-3 times a month. I’ve never had better results than the ELEMIS - Papaya Enzyme Peel !

Why Not Save Your Monry💰💰 Dupe Alert🚔 for Expensive Essence!
Since I have sensitive skin, I always spend a lot on essence for my daily skincare. I used to use Lancome Advanced Genifique Youth Activating ConcentrateLANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum until I found L’OREAL Youth Code Ferment Pre-essence L'ORÉAL - Youth Code Serum Intense Daily Treatment After I used both products, I think L’OREAL could be the dupe alert of Lancome.  Since both products are from the L'Oréal Group, the ingredients are from the same place. As for the effect, they have the same effects of brightening skin tone, moisturizing, and repairing. As for the quality, they are both very refreshing and Lancome is a little more sticky. As for the malleability, both of them are easy to absorb. However, L’OREAL is really cheap, which is US$45.00 for 30ml, compared to about US$100.00 for 1 ounce. So if you have skin need of brightening and repairing, I really recommend L’OREAL. But I have to say that Lancome is better to refine pores, moisturize, and moisturize.  Another dupe I recommend is OLAY SPOT FADING TREATMENT OLAY - ProX Spot Fading Treatment For Even Tonewhich can be dupe alert for SKⅡ aura essence SK-II - GenOptics Aura Essence Serum. Because I have some acne marks, I usually use skin products for whitening and acne removal. They both have effects of brightening and whitening because they both have nicotinamide. However, the price of SKⅡis almost six times expensive of OLAY(OLAY- about 30 USD for 40ml, SKⅡaura essence- about 200USD for 50ml). And since SKⅡ has the composition of the picture, it’s more gentle while whitening. As a college student, I think OLAY is a better choice if you have the plan to use it for a long time. There are two dupe products I found these days, if you have the same skin- sensitive and have a need for whitening, maybe you should have a try of these two dupe essence.

Olay VS SKII?Does affordable skin care work?
As a student, sometimes I don't have enough living expenses to choose expensive skincare products. Sometimes I choose a cheaper alternative. This time I'm going to talk about some of the things you care about about how to whiten our skin. The product I want to compare is Olay and SkII, which are very popular online. The price of Olay is about $30, and the capacity of one bottle is 30 ml. The price of SK2 is about $125, which is also 20 milliliters. My skin is yellow because I often stay up late.SK2 has a thick texture. It's not easy to push. Olay, on the other hand, has a transparent texture, which is easier to push away, and absorbs about the same amount the next day. As we all know, the main ingredient of whitening is nicotinamide essence. According to the data, the nicotinamide essence in Olay is twice as high as that in Sk2. The ingredients in both products are: Sepitonic M33,AA2G. But Sk2 also features blemishes, which are more suitable for women over 25.So for the Student Party, I personally think Olay is a cost-effective choice. Finally I want to say my skin quality, my skin quality is mixed oil skin, generally speaking, will not apply a lot of essence fluid, sometimes very stuffy or burst acne. Since the use of Olay, there has been a visible whitening. The essence is not stuffy on the face, can be absorbed by the skin very well. If the skin is sensitive, it can be used in the offline counter, because there are many people who are allergic to nicotinamide. Nicotinamide has a desalting effect on new sunspots, but it may take longer to desalinate spots and acne marks with long pigmentation.

Holy grails! My secret weapons to deal with emergency!!!
There is no superhero in our life to save us, but I believe we all have one or two secret products that can act as heroes to save us from a skin emergency. What I love to share are these two products that have already rescued me for so many times, from meetings to interviews.  Nothing is perfect, but this Out of Trouble Mask ORIGINS - Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask to Rescue Problem Skinis perfect for me, and it is super timesaving when I have some dead skins to clean or need to fight inflammation or pimples. This mask contains camphor, zinc oxide, and salicylic acid to calm skin, absorb excess oil, and unclog pores. It is especially good for people with combination/oily skin like me, and what I do is just to apply to T-zone and areas that are really rough and flaky, wait for 8 minutes, and wash off using makeup pads. The smell is like camphor ball, but I kinda like it, and the price of it is very nice to my wallet as well. Highly recommend this one to you. Another skincare hero saved me from an emergency is this SK-II face mask.SK-II - Pitera Facial Treatment Mask To be honest, I was shocked by its price but all of my friends recommended this to me, and I have to say that it is worth the praise. It is weird to say but it smells like spit, but the effect is amazing. I put it on after cleansing my face, and wait for 15 minutes, take it off and gently massage the rest essence on the face, then a light moisturizer.  My face is never this bright and hydrated! And my pores also get smaller as well, which is something I would never expect from a sheet mask. I know some people will say the price is beyond the budget. But if you have the chance to try it, or with some really important events coming up, these amazing stuff will not let you down!

My tips to an all-day glowy makeup!
We all love perfect look with a flawless makeup over our skin, but that usually comes with a bunch of products and so many steps to follow, not to mention the time spend every day on this. Actually, a great makeup with a high coverage does not require that many steps and here are some of my easy tips to create a glowy, healthy everyday look.   My face is in combination state and can be very dry sometimes. After cleansing my skin, what I do is to immediately put on a hydrating mask for a few minutes. I choose sheet mask if I have some important events since it provides deeper hydration. But on a daily base, I usually use a gel mask and it is easy to apply and wash off. The one I am using is the Rose Stem Mask from Peter Thomas Roth, a very high-tech brand and I really love this the quenching and hydrating feeling on my face.    After that, I apply my regular serum and sunscreen. What I want to mention is that when season changes, my face gets really dry and sensitive, and I started to use this Bobbi Brown moisturiser and it feels smells so good and does not make my face angry at all. It is so important for me now as a perfect makeup base and I use it every day to avoid crease and dryness. My face also looks brighter after using it because it has vitamin C and E to fight oxidants and pollutants.    The last tip I want to share is very easy and I think many people are already doing this: use hydrating spray on sponge. I like to use my spray on face whenever I need some water to quench my dry skin. The sponge absorbs some spray and mixes with the foundation to make the look more hydrating and adhering, and the makeup lasts longer.   These are some of my tips I like to share with you and please let me know if you have some different makeup secrets to create a flawless look!

My 2020 Top eye product🥇🥇🥇
SK-II - R.N.A. POWER Anti-Aging Eye Cream This is overall a great eye cream that isn’t overpriced. I do love how rejuvenated my eyes look and feel after waking up! It might not get rid of my under eye bags but it definitely keeps my under eye area supple and moisturized. It is the eye cream that leaves your under eyes feeling super moisturized and hydrated. My concealer was also staying very choppy because my under eyes were so dry. This eye cream I like to use it the most during supper. It has a cool effect. It’s creamy and moisturizing. Additionally It soaks in great. This is highly recommended for combinations and oily skin. Kiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado It might be too heavy for hot summer days but I love it so much in the winter! If you have dry skin you will adore this! A little goes a long way. One thing I love about this product is that it leaves under-eye skin feeling strengthened and replenished. Additionally, it diminishes the appearance of fine lines. It is super hydrating but without messing up your makeup. I do love the texture of it. Silky and smooth application, feels amazing I do skip a couple of days in between uses of this eye cream. My skin is softer, brighter, and visibly refreshed in the morning. However, I have to say that it is so heavy that daily use is almost too much. At first, it is very creamy but after you rub it, it becomes watering. ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix It's my holy grail eye cream, and it really works. I've always had sleeping problems and occasionally stay late because of work. This eye cream has helped me a lot with my dark circles, and fine lines. This is one of the must have products in my cosmetic bag. This is the eye concentrate I use all seasons through out the year. I have very sensitive eyelids, I have had many eye creams as they are irritating to my sensitive eyes. This doesn't bother me or give me rash or milias. And I feel comfortable wearing it both during the day and at night before sleep. Amazing product! What's your fav eye product? Pls let me know👇

If You Have Never Used These Products, Go Get Them Now! 👉👉
I have combo dry skin during spring and summer, and combo oil skin during fall and winter. I have a little bit acne. My biggest skincare concern is aging. After using so many skincare products in my life, I have listed a couple of my favorite products of all-time, and some products I will never ever use again. This is the first part of this long list, so the following products are my FAV. If you have the same skin type&concerns, don't hesitate! Just Buy Them! 💕💕💕💕 SK-II - R.N.A. POWER Anti-Aging Eye Cream It is good for girls above 25 who want to life up and firm their skin around the eyes. It is creamy, easy to spread out and be absorbed. You can use it both in the morning and at night.  Helena Rubinstein Powercell Youth Grafter - The Eye Care This is the second one I bought. It ensured the health and stability of the skin around my eyes. I use it at night, and I normally massage my skin until the eye cream has been fully absorbed.  CLARINS - Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate I use it in the morning and at night. It can be absorbed easily. I think it is great for all skin types. It is not sticky at all. It helps to improve the later absorption of facial creams. This is my go-to serum during seasonal changes. I got pimples when my skin was unstable under huge pressures from work. But my pimples got so much better after I used up a bottle of this serum.  LANCÔME - Advanced Génifique Youth Activating Serum Comparing to the eye serum in this product line, this face serum works way better. My skin got significantly smoother than it used to be. This texture is like egg white, so very light and easy to be absorbed.  Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil It can remove your makeup completely. Definitely a MUST-BUY cleansing oil. I love this product forever. And I will consistently stock up on. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm For combo skin, cleansing balm is definitely the 1st choice. Comparing to the other cleaning balms, this is the most refreshing one. And it can remove even the toughest makeup! Have you tried these babes before? Let me know 🥰

$22 Vs. $75! Dupe Or Nope?🤔🤔🤔
SK-II - Facial Treatment Cleanserand Olay White Radiance Cellscience Cleanser. Both are amino acid cleansing foams with great reviews for being gentle and sensitive skin friendly. First thing, I have combination and sensitive skin. SK-II - Facial Treatment Cleanser$75 for 109ml It's quite expensive for me 😑😑 It has a lubricating texture just like butter and a pleasant faint rose scent. It doesn't irritate the skin and it has a lightweight and soft texture, but it doesn't lather well. It's sensitive skin friendly and doesn't cause any irritation. You need to use quite a bit of it but it leaves the skin feeling refreshed and not at all dry after it's washed off without leaving any residue. It cleanses just moderately, with the eyeliners only partially removed. I usually use it as a morning cleanser. I will not repurchase this because of the steep price. It's quite easy to find a much more affordable alternative. For example- Olay White Radiance Cellscience Cleanser-$21.74 for 120g It's cheap and worth its price. I really like it. It has a soft creamy texture but it doesn't lather well. It's gentle, not irritable and sensitive skin friendly! It leaves the skin refreshed, squeaky clean and not at all dry, but subsequent skincare products are required. It cleanses just moderately, so it's also suitable for morning cleansing. It's very affordable and the experience is worth more than the price. I've been enjoying using it the whole summer. However, it cleanses just moderately, so I personally think that it's more suitable for morning cleansing, starting the day gently without irritation. Needless to sayt, SK-II is a good cleanser. But it's not worth buying at such a high price. Whats your thoughts on the 2 products, Share with me!

My Cleanser Awards
I have acne prone combination skin, so I really need cleansers that leave skin very clean and not overly drying.  1. SK-II - Facial Treatment Cleanser ,  $75 for 109 ml I'd like to use the product as AM cleanser because skin does not feel clean as compared to other cleansers. It is not suitable for oil skin. I will not repurchase it only if it's on sale. 2. LA MER - LA MER The Cleansing Foam, $85 for 125ml It's my holy grail cleanser! It makes my skin feel clean without the tightness feeling. A little bit goes a long way. The only downside is the price.  If you want to invest in a high end cleanser this one is definitely worth your money. 3. ESTĒE LAUDER - Nutritious Super-Pomegranate Radiant Energy 2-in-1 Cleansing Foam, $30 for 125ml It can also work as scrub.  It created a deeply cleansing lather and washed clean. But I felt a little dry recently. Maybe it works better for oil skin. 4. CHANEL La Mousse Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream-To-Foam, $45 for 150ml Pink for combination skin and blue for dry skin.It builds a nice lather and it lasts a long time as a little goes a long way. But the La mer one is more moisturizing.  5. REN CLEAN SKINCARE - ClearCalm 3 Clarifying Clay CleanserREN Clarifying clay cleanser, $32 for 150ml It really impressed me!  It doesn't foam up but it leaves my face clean and smooth.  When massaging into your skin it feels warm moisturizing.It does help clean pores and banish acne scars. Worth trying if you suffer from oily or blemish-prone skin. 6. CLARINS - Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed for Normal/Combination Skin Types,$25 for 140ml This felt so nice on my skin and lathered up into a nice foam. A little gose a long way and it leaves my face squeaky clean. The only thing is that it makes me feel a little dried out. 7. fresh - Soy Face Cleansing Milk, $15 for 50ml It’s my go to. Removes makeup and mascara with small amount. However, if you have dry skin at all it really dries it out. 8. Dr. Hauschka - Dr.Hauschka Cleansing Cream,$23 for 50ml My skin feels supple and hydrated and it does leave an oily film that is melting in as you pat your skin dry.You are supposed to mix the paste with water and press into your skin. I aways feel that it leaves my pore super in the morning after using it last night.

Hot toner🤘🏻
Erno Laszlo Erno Laszlo Hydraphel Skin Supplyment always out of stock... I seldom saw a brand of toner can be as hot as it. This brand is said to be Monroe's favorite at past time. Let me talk about the feeling of using! I'm combination dry skin, moisturizing is my most important function. This toner is highly recommended by my sister. At that time, in order to make me believe how good this toner is, she gave me one :) The texture is very special, like silk and a little sticky, but it can be well absorbed by skin. I usually apply it after cleaning, and then apply the essence. With this toner as a base, the essence is better absorbed. Even if you apply a lot of it, you won't feel oily or any uncomfortable feeling. SK-II facial treatment essence I've probably used at least 7 bottles. So it has been a very long period to use this product. The main function is to maintain stability of skin. Although this product is called essence, it is actually a toner containing essence. The official expresses that it is more suitable for oil and acne skin, but I think it is also a very good product for my dry skin! Otherwise I won't use it so long. When I apply it, especially on the two sides of the nose and chin, where there are many horniness and the pores. Pressing many times to make the skin fully absorbed, and your skin will really get better after long-term use! To be honest, other products of SK-II family are not easy for me to use! Other products in SK-II family are too nutritious for me. Only the SK-II facial treatment essence can match my skin... So no matter how hyped other products are, I won't try to buy them. In short, these two kinds of toner are very useful products. I haven't used Erno Laszlo for a long time, so I can't give a precise suggestion. I can only say that this product is not bad, you can try to buy it. In addition, I really use SK-II for a long time, so I am very responsible to tell you guys that this product has a good performance in maintaining skin stability, reducing acne marks and moisturizing your skin.

Only one product can get “YES”😟
My skin type is dry combination with acne skin, acne marks are left by the adolescence. Blain and pore bulky skin is the most serious problem! Products with hydrating and acne treatment is my first needs when I buy skin care products. I will introduce two products which I have tried before. I hope I can help people to avoid mine field. YES! Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque Kiehl's - Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask The texture is more close to transparent jelly,and is suitable to all skin types. This product can help acne anti-inflammatory, especially red acne can get effective improvement. It has high Concentration of Calendula essence. After using it before you go to bed, Abnormal skin condition can be relieved the next day morning. But there's a problem with this product. The amount of preservative added in it is a little large. There is a slight pinch for people whose skin cuticle is thin. In addition, before using this mask, you need to use hydrating lotion or toner first. If you use it under a dry skin condition, you will also feel tingling. NO! SKII R.N.A.POWER Radical New Age SK-II - R.N.A. POWER Anti-Aging Face Cream I've tried this product three times, and each time I get pimples the next day! It is the kind of big acne that can squeeze out white particles. First of all, this product contains Niacinamide. If you are not a tolerable skin, this product is easy to make you have acne and allergies. I have introduced in my previous post how to use Niacinamide ingredient correctly. If you are interested, you can have a look. Secondly, the nutritional content of this product is too high. For my skin, there is a little over nutrition. The skin absorbs too much and blocks the pores. Actually, the best way I've found in recent years to keep my skin in good condition is to avoid eating sweet food! Try to eat less desserts, run more and exercise more. It's really better than any skin care product!

Reviews

Awhile ago, I decided to jump
Awhile ago, I decided to jump on the hype and bought the skii Piteria Essence 💛Claims:Brighter glow, prevent spots, less visible wrinkles, smoother texture, and suppler skin. 💛Ingredients:Piteria -A bio-ingredient containing over 50 micro-nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and organic acids to condition skin's natural functions 🌸Thoughts: I expected that if I spend more than $150 on one product, the product should live up to the expectations that they claim. There are so many people who love this product and swear that it is the Holy grail. To me.. nothing! It doesn’t do anything for me. The scent is a little weird as well. The texture is very light. 💛🌸💛🌸💛🌸 huxley Secret of Sahara Oil Essence 🌸Claims: A concentrated brightening essence with ingredients that protect skin from polluted environments and stress. It delivers a refined, bright, and radiant look. 💛Ingredients: Cactus Extract / Prickly Pear Seed Oil- Moisturizes skin / Antioxidant Niacinamide - Brightens skinOdeetoxTM Inhibits melanin / Antioxidant / Anti-pollution Glutathione Improves skin tone / Detoxifies skin Bisabolol-Brightens / soothes skin 🌸Thoughts: This has a texture of a serum or an ampoule rather than an essence. It has a very strong fresh floral scent. The scent is very pretty but it lingers for a long time. That’s is a no no for me, since I dislike strong scent on my skincare products. I didn’t like this essence because I don’t see any difference in my skin texture after using it for two weeks. I am going to continue to try this for a little longer; if I don’t see anything, I will stop.

Two things I absolutely cannot life without is my SKII facial treatment Essence I’ve been using since I was 18 & the Laniege lip sleeping mask. Skii facial treatment Essence is a little bit on the pricey side but in my opinion worth every dollar. It has visually soften the texture on my face, help with fullness and reduces my pores! I used the Laneige sleeping mask, for the day and night time. It’s a formula that just works and keeps your lips hydrated all day!

Over a month in the making, he
Over a month in the making, here are my final thoughts on the SK-II facial essence… PRODUCT: SK-II Facial Treatment Essence STATUS: It’s a no from me. PRICE: $225 CAD / $179 USD SIZE: 160 mL WHERE: Sephora I have been using this essence every evening for 32 consecutive days. Immediately after cleansing, I would pour a dime sized amount into my palm, press my palms together and then pat the essence onto my face. After that, I would continue on with my various PM regimes. The scent is somewhere between musty towels and dirty dishwater. Which would be fine with me if it were effective but, as far as results go, I saw none. I honestly cannot credit a single change in my skin to this product. I loved the story behind SK-II but was disappointed by the (lack of) results. Maybe if I were soaking in the essence all day long (as was the case with the sake factory workers) it would have had an impact on my skin. I’d love to stick it in a spray bottle and test misting my face frequently throughout the day but, given the price, I won’t be trying that anytime soon.

$70 vs $235 who is the winner
$70 vs $235 who is the winner
CHANEL HYDRA BEAUTY NUTRITION-For Dry Skin $70 As the title of the cream, it is great for dry skin type. The cream is from a Chanel skincare line called HYDRA BEAUTY. Researching reveals the power of its iconic flower, the camellia, and its exclusive ultra-hydrating active ingredient, which is Camellia Alba PFA. This is the key active ingredient helps skin restore and maintain optimal moisture levels in the cells. The texture of the nutrition is really soft and creamy, it helps my skin to be smooth and not cakey. I think the nutrition is a good choice for spring and summer time. The package come with an applier, a cute white flat spoon. Using the applier to get the amount of cream, it is cleaner than use fingers to get cream. Easy to apply and easy to absorpt. SK-II R.N.A Power Anti-Aging Face Cream 80ml $235 I got this cream from my mom. She gave me the small pack and asked me to try if I like it. The best-selling anti-aging cream restores skin suppleness and elasticity with intense hydrating. Suppler skin, less visible wrinkles and smoother texture are the three key effects. I really feel that my skin became firmness, smooth and hydrating. With these great effects, the texture of the cream is not heavy. Lightweight with soft and velvety texture is easily absorbed by the skin. After I apply the cream, the cream melts into my skin. It works for every season, summer or winter. After I used for few days, I could feel that my skin was so smooth. It helps my makeup would not look caky anytime. The magic is that the cream not only gives enough moisture, also gives the skin a fresh and non-sticky feeling. I already finished the cream, love it so much! For this competition, SK II wins! Recommend to all skin type.
