Favourites: Skincare Products

SKII Facial Treatment Mask: This mask is my favourite! Its a tad expensive for weekly use so I save it for when I really need it. Its great to use when you have an important event coming up and you use it three days in a row to really make your skin glow. I also use it when I have really bad flare ups or when my skin feels dehydrated. Its a really wet type of mask so you can use the residue you get on your hands and apply it to your neck. Leave it on for 15-20mins and your skin will thank you:)

SKII Facial Treatment Essence: At first I thought it wasn't really doing anything to my skin. But when I had a bad breakout, I used this after I washed my face -just pat it on with your fingers, and it works by calming my skin down and my skin feels smoother and looks clearer by the next day. After long term use, I find that my skin is less oily and less flaky. The girls from the store said to use cotton pads to apply but I feel that its a waste of the product. I put some in my palm and use my fingers to pat it onto my face.

Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil: I love this cleanser! I already did a previous post on it so feel free to read that! I am using White Recovery EX version and its meant to fade away spots etc.

Philosophy Purity Made Simple Cleanser: This is the most gentle cleanser and it dissolves oil, dirt and even makeup. It doesn't have a strong smell and it feels really nice on your skin and doesn't irritate the eyes or leave your skin feeling tight afterwards. I use this in the morning.

More Philosophy products....I love this brand!

Philosophy Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash: This is a cleanser/scrub with microbeads (feels like very fine sand) and I use this in the shower when my skins feels extra rough. It has instant resurfacing benefits and its very mild to use.

Philosophy Microdelivery Peel: Its a set of two products and I use this once a week to really give my skin a good exfoliation. It really makes your skin super smooth and helps to clear my skin. Once you start, you can't stop! First you apply the resurfacing crystals (the yellow paste) and massage-not rub-into your skin concentrating around your nose and chin. Wash and dry your hands. Next, apply the activating gel over the crystals and you feel a warm sensation and some foaming effect. Leave it on for a few minutes and rinse off. Volia! Skin as smooth as silk!

Philosophy Hope in a Jar moisturiser: This is a creamy but not oily moisturiser and it feels nice and light on your skin. It helps to reduce wrinkles, skin discolouration, rough texture and fights dehydration all in one! My fiance likes it too:)

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion: This is my saviour when I feel a huge pimple starting to grow under my skin. I put this on straight away to stop it in its tracks! It is very a strong formulation so just a small dab will do. And make sure you don't shake the solution. Use a clean cotton bud each time you use it to avoid it getting contaminated.

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm: I don't like to use this as a makeup primer but I love it as a mask. If my skin feel dry after a shower, I put a thick layer of this on and it makes my skin feel soft and instantly brighter. I dont rinse it off, I leave it on and go to bed with it.

Dr Brandt Lineless Eye Cream: Very nice hydrating & light eye cream that quickly absorbs into your skin. I apply to my eye orbital bone area. (I hope that's the correct term)

I haven't tried any of your skin care items listed above. They're a bit too expensive for my pocket, but right now I've been using Laneige and Beautymaker. But it's great that they're all working for you. You do have a lovely skin :)
