Unbelievable challenge! Moisture meter shows $30 face cream beat $228 one!
I have dehydrated sensitive skin; even in Summer, my skin is still as dry as the Sahara Desert! That's why I'm always jealous of girls who have glowing, dewy complexion. I recently tried two well-known J-beauty skincare brands since "mochi skin" is in the latest fashion. The first one is intensive moisture cream from Curel, a famous Japanese drugstore brand founded in 1999. It aims explicitly at dry and sensitive skin. I heard that Curel is the top-selling sensitive skin brand in the Japanese market. This cream can improve your skin's natural barrier function, soothe, and protect skin from dryness according to product introduction. I liked the texture, it's super lightweight, cream-like, and it glides smoothly on my skin, and doesn't even feel like you're wearing any cream on your face! It leaves my skin feeling supple, hydrated, but not with caked-on products. I would recommend to people with very very dry skin like me! The second one is the SK-II moisturizer, which costs more than $200!!! SK-II, also born in Japan, is a famous high-end skincare brand in East Asia and Southeast Asia. Like other luxury skincare brands, it is said that SK-II products are the perfect result of Japanese skin experts applying cutting-edge technology to the development of skincare products. I was trying this out for a while as a nighttime facial cream and finally decided I don't think it's working for me. It is great for keeping certain parts of my skin hydrated and dewy like my forehead and others. But my cheeks are dehydrated, and I always felt like this isn't enough. And the scent of this is just way too overpowering for me! I got the skin moisture meter from my friend, which helped me verify how the moisturizer affected my skin. The meter displays a number from 0 to 99, 0 is the lowest, and 99 is the highest humidity. A result from 0 to 40 indicates that your skin is dry and needs more moisture. You can see the first picture; the number shows that my skin's humidity is only 10.3% before applying skincare products. It increases to 14.2% 30s after I used Cruel cream, but it only rises to 10.9% after applying SK-II. No surprise, I love Curel cream more than SKII, even the last one is much expensive!

Curel Intensive Moisture Cream 🙌🏻✨
Hey guys! I’m kinda picky about my face creams, okay? I don’t really like when they feel so thick that my skin can’t breathe through it, or when they leave an oily film after. Curél - Intensive Moisture Facial Cream oh my gosh! I seriously love this. I tried it for the first time last night and I’m pretty sure that this cream has made a permanent spot in my skincare routine! The texture is almost whipped but still very creaming and it applies almost like a water gel? It’s so hard to describe but it feels so nice going on. It’s not too thick and it’s super breatheable. If you can tell from my before pictures, my skin was feeling super tired and irritated. I had sinus surgery, recently, so there’s still quite a bit of irritation going on around my nostrils and there’s a reddish bruise on the tip of my nose that’s been very dry and flaky. This moisture cream has totally knocked out the flakes, and it’s evened out my skin tone. I feel glowy! I don’t even feel like I need to apply concealer, today! My skin definitely needed that pick me up. I’m gonna continue to use this cream and I might make a progress post later on. I may even have to invest in a few more pieces of this line, because holy cow 🐮 The following is a list of benefits listed on Ulta.com: Benefits: • #1 skincare brand in Japan for sensitive skin • Award-winning bestseller in Japan • For very dry, sensitive skin • Light-as-air texture deeply hydrates • Formulated with ceramide care system • pH balanced • Fragrance-free • Colorant-free • Alcohol-free I wanna quickly add that your skin doesn’t need to be extra dry for you to use this cream. It would most definitely be beneficial for ANY skin type and I HIGHLY recommend trying it out, if you haven’t already!

🌙 Secret to My PM Supple Skin! 🌙
I have combination skin so my t-zone is in the range of normal to oily skin and I have dry skin on my cheeks. My skin tone is warm ivory with a slight reddish discoloration in my cheeks 🧐I also have some freckles (sun spots) across my cheeks and my nose bridge (which bother me!). I also have very sensitive skin so I am alwyas cautious with new products or else my skin will becom super red and peel! 😭 Unlike my am routine (in previous post!), my pm routine is pretty constant and I only change one product in the fall/winter and sping/summer. The products that I use are double cleaners (if needed but I'll only include my second cleanser in this post), facial spray, skin conditioner (toner), two types of different serums and a moisturizer. All of the products that I have included in this review have been reviewed by me before so feel free to go read my previous posts to get all the specifics of the prodcut and how it worked for me! The second cleanser I use is theGlossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser to gently cleanse and refersh my skin. I use this as a second cleanser since it is sooo gentle and I feel like it is just good for prepping my skin for my skincare and it doesn't strip my skin of its oils 👌🏻. The next step is theMARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater I love this product! It has a fragrant smell, the formula is fabulous, and even though it provides such great hydration, my pores don't feel clogged after using it! Another reason why I like this product is because it does not cause irritation or breakouts on my sensitive and combination skin. It also provides great hydration for both face and hair so its extremly versatile. I then use thenaturie - Hatomugi Skin Conditioner which provides enough moisture despite its liquid consistency since it includes hatomugi essence which is rich in vitamins 💊 amino acids and protein. The three musts for tight healthy skin! The next product I use isThe Ordinary - ''Buffet'' This serum because it is good for dryness and I feel like I suffer from dryness more than oiliness. This produt is good for pretty much all types of skin: normal, oily, combination, dry, and most importantly, sensitive skin! Not only does this product help with drynes, it also claims to help with fine lines, wrinkles, dullness, and uneven texture. I've been using this product for about 2 weeks and I feel like its pretty good so far. I like how there is no fragrance and absorbs into my skin pretty well and preps my skin for the next step. Brightening serum and moisturizer. I mix theNeutrogena - Bright Boost Illuminating Serum wtih theCurél - Moisture Facial Milk . The illuninating serum leaves my skin feeling soft and suple with a slight glow ✨ to it but it doesn't really help with my dark spot (still use it thought to finish it). The facial milk is fragrance free and also alcohol free so it doesn’t irritate the skin at all! With only a few pumps my skin feels soft and hydrated 💧.

we love good skin days 😊
I just wanted to make a quick post because my skin was surprisingly good today! I’ve been struggling with my skin for a few months so it was nice to finally have a day when I felt good about my skin. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been adjusting the products I use and the way I layer to minimize pilling and to reduce stickiness. Today I used these products in this order: 1) LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! I will do a product review soon! 2) PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser I tried taking this out of my routine for a bit and I just re-added it to remove some loose skin after I cleansed. 3) Curél - Moisture Facial Lotion Enrich I mix 2 pumps of this with one drop of pure vegetable glycerine and put it on my damp face. 4) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I’m not sure this has really been working for me but I recently bought THE inkey LIST - Niacinamide Oil Control Serumso I’m excited to see if I will get results. I usually use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 before the niacinamide serum, but it’s been a little sticky for me lately so I just use it at night. 5) I use my prescription-strength Azelaic Acid. I love this for my hyperpigmentation and redness! 6) The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG 7) CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion This is such a perfect, light moisturizer for both day and night! 8) I finish it off with my FAVORITE sunscreen dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ I mixed this with a drop of tea tree oil and spread it all over my face and neck. Tea tree oil is key for me! It surprisingly gives me a nice glow and helps reduce redness. Again, I’m still playing around with my skincare routine, so sometimes I’ll throw some of these products into my routine: dear, klairs - Fundamental Watery Oil Drop , The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil , CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream , andThe Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 .

❌ removing this from my routine
I recently posted my night routine with PAULA'S CHOICE - Pore-Reducing Toner in it, but I have since decided to remove it from my skincare routines. I wanted to like this because it has all the good ingredients that are supposed to help oily, acne-prone skin, but it did disappoint. I didn’t break out from it but I definitely didn’t see a difference in my skin. When I was using this toner, my skin felt very tacky and sticky by the end of my skincare routine. I would spend the day with a this tackiness sitting on my face. It wasn’t fun. After I stopped using it, however, I actually found that the other products I’ve been using were more easily absorbed into my skin. I have since replaced the Paula’s Choice toner with Curél - Moisture Facial Lotion Enrich , which seemed to work for my skin before, so I’ll keep you all updated on how I feel about that! Maybe once my skin is a little more balanced, I’ll try the Paula’s Choice toner again, but for now, it’s out!

Curel VS. Dove, Guess who wins?
Cosmetics products are one of the most popular items to shop in Japan among tourists. Some of affordable products have great value for the price. Among a variety of Japanese skin care products, today, I’d like to compare 2 amazing face cleansing products sold in Japan. Both can be found at drugstores or supermarkets in Japan with inexpensive prices. Curél - Foaming Facial Wash and Dove Cleansing Mousse Rich and delicate foam: Curél Foaming Wash>Dove Cleansing Mousse -Observe the foam of the Curél foaming wash on your palm and you can see that it's rich, delicate, soft and silky. -Observe the foam of the Dove cleansing mousse on your palm. It's also quite soft and silky, but you can see some large bubbles around the edges. Cleansing power: Curél = Dove I applied some lipstick on the back of my hand to test the cleansing ability of these two products. -The Curél foaming wash washed it off in one minute without leaving any traces of lipstick. -The Dove cleaning mousse also had the same effect. Both the 2 products work on me, leaving my skin clean and gentle. 10/10 would RECOMMEND!!!

Skincare products for allergy-prone skin-Round 1
I have combination-dry skin in spring and summer, and dry skin in fall and winter. I also have allergy-prone skin with bumps. Let me share some skin care products that I've used before. Facial Cleanser: Curél - Foaming Facial Wash It's a low pH face cleanser that protects the skin's moisture barrier while soothing dry-sensitive skin. It creates a dense foamy lather which cleanses well enough for me when I don't wear makeup during my allergy flares. Avène - Tolérance Extrême Cleansing Lotion It's alcohol-free, preservative-free, and scent-free. It has a soft texture which spreads easily and I can apply just a little amount to my entire face. After that, I'll use a tissue soaked in Avène Thermal Spring Water to wipe off any leftover lotion. I normally use this cleansing lotion when I have severe allergies.  Toner: HABA Pure Roots G-Lotion It stabilizes the skin if we use it regularly. I will always use G-lotion as a base before using other toners. Facial Cream: Avène - Tolérance Extrême Cream It's alcohol-free and scent-free. I will apply a thick layer of this cream on my face whenever I have a severe allergy.

My Face Cream Awards
My Face Cream Awards
Although I don't have extremely dry skin, I cannot live without face cream in my daily skin care routine. My skin is sensitive, but thank God my skin is not that sensitive. My overall requirement for face cream is soothing the skin, moisturizing and repairing my skin barrier. I've tried many different face cream products. But there are only three products I really like to use. Thanks for their excellent performance and today I want to have an award ceremony for these three products. 🏆Best Skin Relief Award🏆: My skin may have redness due to changes of the weather, and sometimes a little itchy rash may appears . Whenever I encounter these minor problems, I will use this LA MER - LA MER Moisturizing Cream cream. Rub it in the palm of my hand for a while, apply on my face, a little can go a long way! Use it before sleep, and my skin looks better after waking up the next day. 🏆Best Moisturizing Award🏆: This Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream from Kielh’s really does the best job on hydrating my skin! I apply it in the morning and my face will not feel dry or dehydrated all day long. Squalin and ceramide ingredients are really good for dry skin problems! 🏆Best Price Award🏆: This $28 Curél - Intensive Moisture Facial Cream is just so cost-effective! Curel is a brand from Japan, and most products owned by this brand are in very good prices. I want to say that J beauty is not lost to the popular K beauty now! If you are interested in brands from other countries, try it out!

Curel vs Freeplus Face Wash! Which One is Better for DRY Skin?
Curel vs Freeplus Face Wash! Which One is Better for DRY Skin?
My friend recommended me these two products a long time ago, and I have been using them for a while. I am mostly staying at home these days. So I think it might be good to write about my face washes. Curél - Foaming Facial Wash It dispenses a foamy and delicate lather. It leaves a moisturizing, dewy and comfortable feeling after cleansing with no tightness at all. Even if you don't apply moisturizing lotion immediately afterwards, your skin won't feel dry. Of course, Curél focuses their products on dry and sensitive skin, but it's suitable for all skin types. It has a gentle texture and so is suitable for morning use. I will repurchase this after I finish my facial cleanser at home. Freeplus Mild Moisture Soap Both the Freeplus Mild Moisture Soap and Freeplus Mild Soap (100g) generate fine bubbles. What I like about this moisture soap is that it's really long lasting. I am a heavy user and it lasted me seven to eight months, but it's not convenient to carry around as the bottle is too big. I will repurchase this product.

I’ve struggled with acne since 6th grade ! Help
I’ve struggled with acne since 6th grade ! Help
I’ve struggled with acne since I was in 6th grade. Having acne really took a toll on me, I became insecure and withdraw from everyone. Over the years I stopped being insecure of my acne but when people made comments regarding acne as a whole I do become self conscious. I wanted 2020 to be the year where I finally get my skin back but unfortunately nothing has worked. I struggle with texture,very oily skin and breakouts as well as dark spots. For the past year I’ve been using CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser Glycolic Acid Toner from the Ordinary and Jojoba Oil as my moisturizer. I’ve recently began looking into fungal acne and from what they say I feel like I have fungal acne because of my texture. I’ve recently incoperated Nizoral - Anti Dandruff Shampoo to tackle the fungal acne but I see a small to no difference. I stopped using the jojoba oil recently and replaced it with the Curél - Severely Dry Skin Lotion Curel Ultra Healing Lotion . Please help. Nothing has worked. Thank You :)

I use this with my vitamin c Serum in the morning and at night, but I think it makes my face too greasy in the morning. I love the product and it does do a great job with hydrating my face. Curél - Dry Skin Therapy Hydra Silk Moisturizer As a hand cream.. I absolutely love this in the winter!!! So smooth and not greasy at all(just on my face apparently lol)

Sensitive Skin Must Haves & Holy Grails!
If you have sensitive skin, nothing is more important than moisturizing to soothe, hydrate, and restore skin's dry, compromised barrier.💦💦 I've tries lots of moisturizers and found the 2 that work well with the affordable price tag👍🏼👍🏼 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations The B5 cream is used to restore sensitive skin and maintain its balance. I didn't really know how to use it at first, and using it on and off showed no results. It also has a thick consistency so I didn't like it very much. It wasn't until autumn that I started seriously applying a thick layer of it every night when I had a allergy flare on my entire face. After a few days, the redness on my face subdued and my chapped skin resulting from having a thin cuticle layer also improved a lot. But please pay attention to the expiry date of B5. It only lasts for 6 months after opening. Curél - Intensive Moisture Facial Cream This is a night cream I'll use when I don't have many skin issues and don't need any allergy repair (since B5 is very thick and feels sticky on my face after applying it). Although my impression towards facial creams is that they're not very refreshing on the face, Curél doesn't seem at all sticky after you gently pat it on.

My Go-to Facial Moisturizers for Spring/Summer
My Go-to Facial Moisturizers for Spring/Summer
LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Ultra Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin The cream texure is suitable for dry skin while the Ultra Fluide is suitable for oily skin. It feels like there's a very thin layer of oil covering my face after applying it, and my skin feels soft and comfortable after waking up the next day. When you're having skin allergies, it's best to use fewer skincare products and apply only basic moisturizing and anti-allergy products. The ingredients of this product are also very safe. It is preservative-free, fragrance-free, colorant-free, alcohol-free and lanolin-free. You can consider this product if you have seasonal allergies. Curél - Intensive Moisture Facial Cream I love how soft this product feels. After I use it at night, it doesn't make my face oily the next morning. It's very moisturizing and is definitely more suitable for summer use. Curél's ingredients are also very mild and it's unscented.
