Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence
What It IsPacked with hyaluronic acid, this essence deeply hydrates skin for long-lasting moisture. This lightweight gel formula replenishes the skin barrier from within for plumper, smoother skin.
The result to an effective skin care routine!
A year ago, I started being lazy and was not following my skin care routine. To give a little background about me, I’m a nurse who does shift work, so on days where I come off from a night shift, I would shower and only rinsed my face with water without using a cleanser. I then would apply my night cream and go to sleep. Fast forward, I started developing this tiny little bumps all over my face, occasional break out, hyperpigmentation and uneven texture. I would exfoliate at times but became inconsistent with it so It didn’t really clear up my skin. Back in March of this year, I became more frustrated as it was taking longer for me to clear up my skin and these tiny little bumps kept coming back (no they were not fungal acne as they were bigger in size and reddened)so I decided to change up my skin care products and made up a routine similar to the ones I see on my social media platform. SKIN TYPE Normal- Dry Combination Skin, Sensitive Morning Routine - Gentle Cleanser CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin - Vit C pura d'or - 20% Vitamin C Serum - Niacinamide The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% - HA depending on my mood. I use different kinds . HADALABO - Gokujyun Premium Lotion or COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence - Moisturizer if I feel like my face needs extra hydration otherwise I would skip this part CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin or LA ROCHE-POSAY - Lipikar Balm AP + Body Cream - SUNSCREEN!! LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 or LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer UV SPF 30 NIGHT ROUTINE - Double Cleanse heimish - Heimish All Clean Balm or The Ordinary - Squalane Cleanser followed by CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin - Toner COSRX - AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner or PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator - If I am not using any of the toners mentioned above, then I would use this The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA On the nights I use retinol, I don’t use any chemical exfoliants at all PAULA'S CHOICE - Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment, 30ml - Moisturizer CeraVe - Moisturizing Cream For Normal To Dry Skin -Facial Oil The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane or DERMA•E - Rejuvenating Sage & Lavender Face Oil This was my routine for 4 months. And now of course I’ve changed up few things in my routine. All of these products helped cleared up my skin issues. As you can see, my face is looking much better!!

Mix & match: retinol + HA 💦
Retinol can be quite drying and irritating when you’re first getting on it so it’s important to have the right products to prevent some of that dryness. My favorite to counteract the irritation from retinol is hyaluronic acid, I love to use an essence because it’s light enough so that the retinol can still penetrate through and helps skin retain moisture to help with retinol-induced dryness. This duo is amazing! The COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence is just an incredible product that I’ve mentioned time and time again. It just works and lasts forever, I apply it after spritzing my face with the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha these three just work wonders together. Now the star of this trio is the SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum I love it because even tho it isn’t prescription strength it’s effective and does wonder for skin. I think it’s great if you’re in your late 20’s and starting to get into preventive anti-aging skincare.

One last TikTok foundation hack tested 💪🏼
I have yet another foundation hack I found on TikTok. Originally posted by @chrisellelim, a beauty & fashion influencer I really love. The hack consists of mixing your favorite serum with your foundation for an extra dewy finish and glowy complexion all day. I tried it with my favorite COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence and the MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Shameless Youthful-Look 24H Foundation SPF 25 which is a bit drying on me so I thought it would be perfect to use for this. The essence turned my foundation into a serum like base, make sure you’re using a water based foundation if you’re going to use a water based serum so that it won’t separate! I’m so happy with the final look! I think my skin looks so fresh and the glow did last for hours after first applying it. Very easy and actually works!

My quick (aka lazy) AM routine ☀️
This is a super curated, quick skincare routine I’ve been doing lately. After years of testing different products I think I finally have a clear idea of my skin truly thrives on. I have combination, dehydrated skin and I tend to get uneven texture on my cheeks. I’ve found a more minimal approach with the amount of products I use seems to work best for me, these are the products I’m using: COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence This is my favorite essence ever, it leaves my skin looking plump and hydrated, I use this day and night and it seriously lasts forever. CosRx can do no wrong. I have a more detailed review already posted on my feed! PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum I seriously cant recommend this enough, niacinamide is one of my favorite ingredients in skincare and I love this because it’s so good to treat unwanted texture. I kid you not, I noticed a difference in my skin texture and tone in like a week. Its a bit pricey but I would definitely repurchase. GOOD MOLECULES - Silicone-Free Priming Moisturizer WOW. This is a new favorite, I absolutely adore this moisturizer! It’s so good, it has many skin loving ingredients and it blurs the appearance of pores but it’s not heavy at all. My makeup wears beautifully over it and it’s only $14! Gifted, but all opinions are my own. SUNDAY RILEY - C.E.O. Glow Vitamin C + Turmeric Face Oil I just started using this oil again and I have to say I have a new found love for it, I’m not sure if it’s the mix of this and the Good Molecules primer moisturizer but it is seriously beautiful. It brightens my complexion almost instantly! It’s a great product but a bit pricey so maybe I’ll look for a dupe! And of course I seal it all in with a generous dose of SPF, I’ll make a post of my favorites soon!

K-beauty Skincare Product
COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence CosRX is a very popular Korean skincare brand in America! I recently picked up their Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence in October and haven’t been able to put it down since (~2.5 months). It is composed of only 7 pure ingredients and is formulated to replenish the skin barrier from within for plumper, smoother skin. It contains hyaluronic acid, which deeply hydrated skin for long-lasting moisture. The target concern of this product (and an essence, in general) is to improve hydration. The consistency of this product is a liquid that easily and quickly absorbs into the skin and has no detectable fragrance. Whenever I started using essences, I felt like they were just an unnecessary step in my skincare routine and were a waste of time and money. However, once I finished up my samples, I noticed a difference in my skin and the way my other products absorbed! This product is always raved about, so I wanted to try it. Since using this, my skin has been not as dry as it usually gets in the winter, helps my other products go on and absorb better, and barely takes any time at all. I love spraying a face mist on before using this so that the hyaluronic acid absorbs better (with skin wet). I have noticed a significant improvement in the dryness of my skin since using this product! I would recommend this because it is a great quality essence, is a good price, and is really easy to use! It also takes no time to spray the face mist, wait a couple seconds, then apply this and the results are almost immediate in the relief and hydration it brings to my skin. After using this product, I will always have an essence (probably this one, but like to try out new products) in my routine! I would recommend this product to anyone looking to add hydration to their routine or make their other products sink in better! Price: $22 for 3.38 ounces Rating: 5/5

Cᴏsʀx - AHA 7 Wʜɪᴛᴇʜᴇᴀᴅs Pᴏᴡᴇʀ Lɪϙᴜɪᴅ
This COSRX - AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid is what I am also using in my Korean skincare routine. I apply/use my Cosrx Aha every third day. AHA is like my toner, I apply this liquid using my fingers, I have applied this using the cotton pad but I think is just a waste. I have tried applying it with my hand patting it, Using the cotton pads and my hand It just feels like not much product is getting on my skin, so the best way for me is just pumping a little bit of liquid at the time on my 2 fingers and then applying section by section on my face, for me this is more effective and I can actually feel the product on my skin and I'm also not wasting it. I have used AHA 3 times in this 2 weeks period of using, I have seen changes in my skin of brightness, my white heads on my chin is slowly going too. I'll probably see more changes when I've used the whole bottle 😄. It's very gentle on my sensitive skin which is excellent. How I use my AHA step When I use my AHA I actually also don't use the COSRX - One Step Moisture Up Pad because it's feels like I'm just wiping off the product (I'm probably not) but is just me, so from AHA I skip the pad (I use the pad the next day) and use my COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence then the next step from there. So that's how I use my COSRX - AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid works perfectly fine on my dry sensitive skin. If you are using this product please share your experience so far? My skin type Dry/Sensitive Ingredients Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycolic Acid, Niacinamide, Sodium Hydroxide, 1,2-Hexanediol, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol 📍Melbourne Australia Kindly, JPEREZ 💛
