Before I turned 25, my mom was like, “Winnie, everything is going to change. You better take care of your skin.” Since following Ceci’s blog about Korean products and going on a shopping trip with her… I have come to a skin care routine. Taking your skin is the best way to keep looking like a 12 year old 🙌 .
I slowly gone from a 2 step process (wash & tone) to a multi-step process. This are the current products I use and I’ll update this page as I change it up!
1. Makeup remover – Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser (green cap)
4.5 Sheet mask (once a week). I have a bag full of sheet masks of the Etude House I Need You Mask, Nature Republic Real Mask Sheet, and I’m eyeing these next once my stash runs out: Tony Moly I’m Real Skin Care Facial Mask.
3. Eye cream
Makeup remover / cleanser
- Garner Micellar Water (red cap, non-waterproof removal) – while this product is super easy to use by squirting onto a cotton pad… it doesn’t really remove eye makeup well. I leave it on top of my eye for a few seconds and brush to the side. It claims you don’t need to do any harsh rubbing but it’s needed to remove completely. I skipped a night of my Clarisonic use and opted for this instead (since I did not workout that day) and it was unable to remove my makeup as I still saw my BB cream color when I used another cotton round for toner. This product is best for a morning clean.
- Burt’s Bees Bark & Chamomile Deep Cleansing Cream. This cleanser was surprisingly cool and minty. It really gets you in the sleeping mode. Not a lot of suds so it’s much easier to wash off (but I love suds cause it tricks me to think I am cleaner, haha)
- Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3 (pink bottle) – this toner was not as stinging, but it still had that feeling. It was a good run but I rather use a toner that also moisturizes in addition to leveling my pH.
