Currently On-My-Face Skincare Routine | Day & Night #1

hey hey! 
sharing a little on my current daily skincare routine, because I have emptied out my moisturizer and its time for a reveal and decision making to try out new set or to repurchase?

I used to be a lazy bum when it comes to skincare routine, ehem. I love sheet masks and I make sure I buy good cleansers. but when it comes to my after cleansing skincare - truth to be told, I am still looking for the best one yet and have just started being super religiously applying last year Q3 on and off of 2018 and really stick to it as a habit in 2019 - time to really catch up. Hoping from skincare brands to another, I can finally reveal, the skincare line that I felt, deemed worthy for a repurchase until I find a good recommendation. 

My Skin Type : Overall Dry / Combination on T-Zones / Pigmentation
No-nos : Sticky after feels/ Creamy Textures 

yeap, if you're reading this, you'd probably be like.. uh but dry skins need the creams for hydration - but if I don't like the creamy after feel. how? well, too bad? but I have found some acceptable texture that makes me smile whenever I smother my face with it! 

here's the reveal! 

Cleanser - it's Skin Cleansing Foam- currently trying out the brand cause the fambam bought tons during our trip to Busan last year. Cleanses the face - okay. don't feel the wow effect for any repurchase yet. Honestly, I alternate days for morning washes with regular water rinse and cleanser wash so it won't be so dry.

Toner / Essence - The Body Shop - Vitamin E Essence Boost - super love this Essence Boost its like  ultimate favourite and must have for both my day and night skincare routine. Smells amazing too! 1 Bottle actually lasts quite long even for daily usage. so the price was worth it. I am down to my last few uses!

Essense/Ampoule - it's Skin VC Boost - I can use this Vitamin C on my day routine as researches said it doesn't go well is AHA/BHAs which was mainly my night routine. The booster was a bestseller for it's Skin's line. so far, i did noticed a decrease in my pigmentation, although not sure if it was because of my Body Shop Vitamin E Gel Moisture combo which I ran out earlier in January. But I got my second purchase! so we shall see if it really reduces pigmentation in a long run! honestly loe how affordable it is.


Moisturizer - Palmer's Skin Success Eventone Fade Cream Regular Day - because most of the time my concerns are my pigmentation. Heard much about the Palmer's brand. So far, noticed its suppose to be for oily skin type. The texture is quite creamy but it has a sketchy feel to my skin whenever applied. However, no breakouts or anything. so I'll continue using the tub.

Sunblock - Api'eu Waterlock - Been religiously putting on sunblock everyday now. because the regrets for my face have never felt so deep because I never liked to use sunblock because of the sticky texture. Ever since I finished my Vella Sun Essences, I couldn't find it anywhere to buy anymore. So I went back to being a complaining kid on sunblocks. Recently finished my Etude House Sunprise, but Api'eu's was quite acceptable during my Busan trip - so again, I bought a few to stock up.

Final - Althea Velvet Petal - The final step will have to be the velvety finish because after the sunblock, my face is usually dewy and sticky. So its a must for one light layer of the loose powder. it helps keep everything in take for the day too! You can read up a detail review for this holy grail final touch at the Althea Velvet Petal post!

I hardly uses any additional makeups - honestly its pretty bare. I use eyeliners and eyebrow linings with mild lip tinting/lipstick on an everyday basis.


night routine, i go all out. which i used to be not much of a fan. but as we age, gotta really work on the maintenance. I am more lenient for sticky after-feel for night routine, because as much as i don't really like it, its still needed for my dry skin type.

Makeup Remover - Clean It Zero Original - yesss! i finished off my Silky Girl Gel Makeup remover. so it was finally time to use this super raved balm. Honestly, i didn't really like the feeling in the beginning because it felt super oily and uncomfortable as it melts my makeup off. people even say it works as a cleanser directly. I was dumbfounded because I honestly did not really like the put-on feel to it. BUT! with a rinse after this it is more acceptable. So i alternate with my cleanser now so it won't be too harsh on my skin. This baby works super good removing all ugly stuffs from the face even though it did not felt like it. A more detailed review coming up soon!

Cleanser - Za Wash - As mentioned, i like my face squeaky clean. but just found out recently if i over wash it would make it dry. so now, I try to alternate my cleansers because i have's Clean It Zero. unless i felt extra oily and sweaty that day, then I'd go for an extra cleanse.

Toner - Cosrx AHA/BHA Toner - been hearing alot of good feedbacks for this toner range and decided to try it out! SUPER LOVE the fact that it comes in A SPRAY instead of the usual drip out style. easily used and i think saves so much because i can control the amount that goes on the face.
+ The Body Shop Essence Boost after 20mins layering

** Sheet Masks - Random Sheet Masks I have purchased to give my face the pampering boost.

Essence - Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence - has been one of the must buy for the brand, so i gave it a go! it has a thick texture and smells like sugar water to be really honest, mild one. being 96% Snail secretion, I find it nothing near disgusting at all. so it was okayy, as for results - my skin did really feels more healthier, but just don't expect drastics changes.

Moisturizer - Cosrx Power Repair Hydration Cream - blogged about it in details, you can read out it. it's at its tip of emptying right now.  i will be on a hunt for a hydrating moisturizer again.

Add-ons - ID.AZ Firming Sleeping Pack - for the final fix to get my V-shape and burn fats for my double chin, i end it with the firming sleeping mask that i've reviewed earlier that i received from Butterfly Project. It's running low too! so far has quite an impressive effect to the face after a months usage. totally helped with my double chin cause i used it on my focused double chin area and jawline.


I am no expert in skincare, and I don't have the perfect face. But other than my dark spots that i'm working on, I am safe to say I am happy with current Skincare routine! Every products have its own detailed first impression and review. feel free to check them out individually at the link of their respective product name. :)

Feel free to suggest some of your recommendations of Must-Haves on your face! and maybe some add-ons to mine as I notice people actually put in Essences for morning routines?
so I can switch around and find my holy grail.

until next magical day,
