My Skin Care Routine
Hey everyone! Today I'm gonna show you the products that I use to take care of my skin, and how often I use them and stuff. I've been meaning to post my skin care routine for the longest time and it's only now that I've gotten around to doing it. Soooooo, here goes!
Here are the products I use regularly.
So as you can see, I don't use a lot of skin care products. I just use the "basic" stuff. And also, I think I have to mention this - back when I was still in late elementary to early high school, I had a LOT of pimples. I was really insecure about my skin back then. Then my mom made me use Perla to wash my face. Sounds crazy, I know, but it really did work! Well, it did for me, at least. I'm sparing you the whole chemistry-ish explanation on why Perla did wonders for my skin. Then my face started to clear up. That's when I started using Pond's facial washes. I'M A POND'S BABY. I think I've tried almost every variant available. Haha. My favorite one back then was the one with the menthol beads... you know the one with Carla Grasa in the commercial? Yeah, that's one super refreshing facial wash! Aside from the facial washes, I also started using Pond's toners. And yes, I've also tried all variants (I think), even those not for my skin tone. But now I know better. Hihi.
Now, let's talk about the products one by one :)
1. Pond's Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam
I really really like this one. It cleanses my face well and I always feel refreshed after every use. This is my fourth tube, I think. I use this every morning and every night after removing my makeup or before going to bed.
2. St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub
This is the first facial scrub I've ever used and I'm liking it so far. Some say that this scrub is a little bit harsh on their face but for me, it's just right. Yeah, my face is thick like that. LOL. I use this 2-3 times a week.
3. Pond's Oil Control Pore Conditioning Toner
I used to use the whitening variant but I'm not so into whitening products anymore so I settled for the variant that's actually for my skin tone.
4. Myra Daily Sun Protect Facial Moisturizer
I've posted a review of this product already and you can read that *here.* I use this after toning only when I'm going out in the sun. At night or during days I'm just bumming around the house, I use the another moisturizer.
5. Myra Facial Moisturizer
This is the other moisturizer I was talking about. I use this every night and it's perfect for that especially since it doesn't have SPF. It works as nicely on me as the Sun Protect one. The consistency is a bit different, though.
6. Lip Ice Sheer Color Changeable Lip Conditioner
I love this product. It smells really good! And it works really nicely, too. Keeps my lips moisturized and leaves a hint of color, perfect for errand days.
I use another lip conditioner under my lippies, one that doesn't leave a tint. It's the Chap Ice Lip Conditioner. I don't know if it's my favorite lip balm but it's the one I have right now.
7. Etude House Lip & Eye Remover
I use this to remove my makeup. This is my second bottle. That's how much I like it. It can take off most of my eye makeup and doesn't sting my eyes.
8. Pond's Perfect Care Cold Cream
Then I use this to remove my face makeup. I don't use heavy-duty makeup anyway, so this cream is enough.
9. Purederm Nose Pore Strips and iWhite Korea Nose Pack
I have to say, Purederm nose strips are the best pore strips I've used so far. I've tried the Pond's and the Bench pore strips but I'm liking the Purederm ones the most.
And when I'm out-of-stock of the Purederm strips, I use the iWhite nose pack which is also good and more inexpensive, too. I was really excited to know that they sell this product in tubes instead of sachets now. :)
10. Vaseline Healthy White Skin Lightening Lotion
And finally, this isn't a "face" product but it's for the skin still. I'm not particular when it comes to lotions. Actually this was just given to me by my friend. It's a huge bottle and I've been using it for months now. :)
So those are the products I use regularly. They're not much but they do the job :)
Oh, and by the way, a few weeks ago, Kingking of 25,000 Megawatt-Smile gave me the Top 10 award. This was actually what drove me to post my skin care routine once and for all. Thanks, dear!
