🤜🏻🤛🏻Kiehl's vs. Fresh, Guess Which Face Cream Is Better?
My skin switches from being combination-dry to oily, acne-prone every summer, so face cream is very important to me. Recently I've tried two face creams and one of them is empty. I'm going to tell you which one you should try. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream Its oil-free formulation is quite refreshing. It has a transparent gel-like texture and it smells a bit like glue, but I haven't noticed its moisturizing effect. One to two hours after applying it, it dehydrates my skin which makes my skin shine even more on the surface, so it's really frustrating. I now only use it as a primer. I find it to be quite useless, so I won't repurchase it. fresh - Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer I found this to be my true love after buying a small jar of it to try last year! It is moisturizing but doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy, which is perfect for those with combination-dry skin! It can be used in spring, summer and fall, but it might not be moisturizing enough for winter use. Compared to my previous Snail White Concentrate Facial Cream which has a strong perfume fragrance, Fresh's facial cream has a light cucumber and lotus scent which I love, so I immediately purchased the standard size. As a basic moisturizing face cream, I think the Fresh lotus facial cream performs really well, so I will definitely repurchase it. Have you tried either of them before? Let me know 🥰

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.

My skincare routine
A little background on my skin: I have struggled with acne seen I was a teenager. I wouldn’t call it severe but it’s definitely persistent... I don’t go a single day without at least a couple pimples. I have combo skin, oily on my forehead and cheeks but super dry and flaky around my nose/mouth/ chin area. I also constantly have little bumps on my face that don’t really get red or turn into whiteheads and am thinking it could be fungal acne?! I wanted to develop a skincare routine that would help with acne and textural irregularities, even my skin tone and shrink my pores, and if possible give me glowing skin! So here it is! Let me know what you guys think! PM (daily): CLEANSE: I double cleanse starting with removing my makeup using LUSH - Ultrabland . It’s good at removing makeup but it is super thick and hard to get off so once I’m done with this tub I will probably try a different makeup removing cleanser. I then go in with either the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser or CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin I keep one in the shower and one by my sink so whichever one is handy is the one I use. TONE: toner isn’t a necessary part of a skincare routine but I like the way Kiehl's - Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner feels and it’s Hyram approved so I figure it can’t be doing any harm. TREAT: I have used a prescription retinol (tretinoin) for the past year or so. Helps with acne and signs of aging. I then use The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 to hydrate my skin. I used to use this in the morning but I don’t love the way it feels under my makeup. MOISTURIZE: I use CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion which is great for hydration but even though it’s targeted for oily skin I feel like my skin is super oily after... so I might switch back to using Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream which feels really cool and calming on the skin and doesn’t leave me oily. AM(daily): Cleanse with one of the two cera ve cleansers listed above. Tone with the same toner. TREAT: I use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and I absolutely love it. It has helped with controlling my oil production and it has so many other amazing benefits. If I’m feeling dry I will use Kiehl's - Hydro Plumping Re-Texturizing Serum Concentrate which has glycerin to lock water in. I will then moisturize with CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 . I will then use The Ordinary - High-Adherence Silicone Primer as a base for my makeup. Once a week (Sunday) I use The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque . My skin feels so smooth after. 3 times a week in the morning I use The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA for mild exfoliation. Thoughts?

How to choose a moisturizer for combination skin ❓
Boohoo! Having combination skin makes lots of things get tricky, for example, choosing ur moisturizers. As a girl with super oily T zone and dry cheeks, it's quite hard to find a good moisturizer which hydrates my skin well without leaving me a greasy look. Luckily, I finally figure out a way to pick your best moisturizer buddy. Ready for it? Here're the things you need to consider: Get a lightweight or oil-free formula. This kind of formula won't give you a heavy feeling of your T zone or cause any acne. Even though it might be insufficient to hydrate your cheeks but you can always apply face oils to eliminate dry patches. Focus on ingredients. Natural humectants are always ideal for us combination poor little things, as they are non-comedogenic and soothing. Remember to avoid scented moisturizers. The fragrance inside often irritates your dry area. If you don't know the exact ingredient list, just choose the moisturizers for sensitive skin!⚠ Personally, I find GinZing™ Oil-Free Energy-Boosting Moisturizer and Kiehl' s Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream work well for me. They are both gel-based and hydrating with a lightweight formula that won't clog your pores on your nose. That's how my way to pick a good moisturizer for my combination skin! Follow that and grab your best hydrating buddy xoxo!

Skin Care Routine for Dry Skin
I have dry sensitive skin with a thin cuticle layer. I don't have any serious skin problems, so my main concern is only moisture retention. Today, I'm going to share with you my skin care routine.😊 This Clarins facial cleanserCLARINS - Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Shea Butter with shea butter is for dry sensitive skin. This is already my second tube. It smells good and leaves my skin squeaky clean and silky with no tightness at all. Those with sensitive skin can use it without irritation. This toning lotion is also from Clarins.CLARINS - Toning Lotion for Dry/Normal Skin It smells good and is developed specially for dry sensitive skin. It is also alcohol-free so even those with irritated skin can use it.😉 The Clarins Day Cream CLARINS - Extra–Firming Day Cream All Skin Types is better suited for dry skin and not recommended for combination-oily skin. I haven't had issues with skin peeling after using it and it also has brightening and anti-wrinkle effects. I use it interchangeably with Kiehl's Ultra Facial CreamKiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream. I really love Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream.Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream My skin felt so smooth after applying it and even my friends complimented me on my brighter skin. Many have said that they got milia after they used the Kiehl's avocado eye creamKiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado, but I didn't have that issue. The application is very important. Make sure that you don't wipe it on. Just dab it on after you warm it between your fingers and don't apply too much each time.👍

Day 6: My Skin Journey
Last night’s routine: Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Eye Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream This morning’s routine: Cetaphil - Extra Gentle Daily Scrub Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Toner Kiehl's - Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution Neutrogena - On-the-Spot Acne Treatment Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream ** I started to get persistent itchy red dots on my chest, back and arms a few days ago and I think it’s caused by the Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30which is soy based. Never happened to be before! I have no known allergies. I’ve switched to a different moisturizer to see if that makes a difference.
