The Essential Skincare Routine!

Happy Saturday, friends! It’s time for my skincare routine and I like to share them with you. Ta-da! These are some of my essential skincare that I used on a regular basis while the others on waiting list.

body wash and skincare body wash and skin care

First of all, let me share with you some of the skin care and facial wash that I used and have started using recently for my review on my last week’s post. So, I’m going to start by doing my favorite Aveeno  skin care products.

aveeno cleanser aveeno daily moisturizing lotion

On the bottle it says, “Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser formulated with naturally calming Feverfew that gently cleanses and softens dry, sensitive skin. And it’s fragrant free.” It came in regular size bottle of 177 ml.

While on this big bottle, it says “Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion with natural colloidal oatmeal which clinically proven to relieve dry skin and moisturizes for 24 hours”. Bottle size is bigger, it’s a 532 ml bottle. This lotion is dermatologist recommended.

Aveeno is a new brand name for me. I started using them like a year ago. I usually use Dove or St Ives. But then I switched to Aveeno and I’m happy with the products so far. Nevertheless,  I’m always on the hunt for different types of facial cleansers from high streets to high end brands.

I have been using both of these products regulary and it keeps my dry skin moisturized both body and face.

balea scrub exfoliant dove energy glow facial cleanser

Balea scrub exfoliant is a new brand for me. I haven’t heard it before. Sorry for my ignorant. Anyways, while I was window shopping I came across this exfoliant which was on sale and so I sort of bought it on a whimp. I simply like the packaging. I had it a few months ago and I like the tiny exfoliating beads when scrubbed on my face. It has I believe apricot and walnuty scents. I like the smell now after awhile. It was strong for me at first but it’s about getting used to it. The exfoliant cream is brownish in color. It does what an exfoliating scrub should do. My face looks cleaner and all the dull skins varnished. Yay!!! Oh yes, it’s recommended to use once or twice a week only.

Dove Energy Glow foaming facial cleanser for normal to dry skin in 150 ml tube. This cleanser contains both ultra-fine exfoliants with 1/4 moisturizing cream. It’s like a 2 in 1 instant coffee type of function. It gives skin glow and look great. I have used this in the past and it’s almost finishing as you can see from the state of the tube. It’s going to be empties blog soon.

Koa biore facial wash tonymoly facial wash

You must have seen these Kao Biore and TonyMoly facial wash in my previous blog. It’s in my last Sunday’s post. These two are my most recent buys of facial wash todate.

Lancome royal body lotion

Last but not least is the Lancome Nutrix Royal Body intense lipid repair cream for very dry skin in 2.0 oz. I got it in a gift set given to me last Christmas.

Oh my goodness!! Lancome’s lotion is amazing. I really love it’s awesome scents and most importantly is I felt the softness of my skin immediately when I applied it on. I love the cushion-soft feelings on my hand and it’s lightweight. The cream absorbs very quickly preventing moisture escaping (chuckle!). I will repurchase it again. It’s one of my favorite.

I hope you like reading this post as much as I like showing my skincare products with all of you 🙂

Don’t be Dirty! Skincare Biore & TonyMoly Face Cleanser

Okay, you’re not going to believe where I picked up this Biore Ultra Moisturising Face Wash? At one of the local Asian grocery store (C&T). Oh wow!!!! They even have TonyMoly face wash from Korea which obviously I must get (chuckle!!!). This may sound crazy and yes, I actually bought these cleansers while   grocery shopping. I came back and check where it can be found, it seems that some drugstores, C&C canada online and Sephora have them.

In case you wanted to know if I used facial cleanser. Well, I still have my usual Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser which I have been using for months. At the same time, I thought of trying something new.  I’ve heard of Kao Biore before but with TonyMoly, just recently through some beauty bloggers. TonyMoly is a popular brand in Korea and has makeup products too. Very cute and impressive packaging. Their makeup products are on a higher price.

Bioré Skin Care Facial Foam Rich Moisture (net wt: 130g)

Oh my gosh!!!! the sweet floral smells were so awesome. It’s so soothing and reminds me of the soap or body lotion in the hotel while I was in Japan like 1/2 decade ago. Flash back, I remembered using Kao Biore skincare product when I was a teenager but then somehow I just stop using them. Can’t remember why but I guess later, I started using other brands likes Clinique and Estee Lauder as skincare products.

Since I stumbled on my memory lane, I wanted to try it again today and to share my thoughts on what I think of this Facial Foam by Biore. Oh yes, for those of you whose is not so familiar, it is a Japanese brand started  since 1887. To know more I’ll link down below.

On the website it says :- Bioré Skin Care Facial Foam Rich Moisture for dry skin. The smooth and lubricating foam easy to apply to the skin  and completely washes off the dirt and leaving the skin moisturized and soft. Verification of the effects with a touch by fingertips and palm. Adopted SPT (skin cleaning technology)” on. Can clean off the dirt to protect the moisture of the skin.

Impressed with their claims, I  have to tried it,  so I did. The first thing that I noticed was the sweet floral scents. It’s smells so good. With this foam all I need is just one tiny squeeze and is sufficient to wash the whole face. I noticed after rinsing, it instantly trapped the moisture and gives  just the exact cleanliness feeling, you know what I mean, right? For me, I just feel that it’s super clean to the point that it makes my skin feels dry-ish.

Frankly speaking, my face definitely does looked cleaner and lighter but not brighter. My thoughts is that it is a good product and has been in the market globally for century. I might start using it once my Aveeno’s foaming cleanser runs out.

TonyMoly Cream Dew Aloe Foam Cleanser ~ Moist & Soothe (net wt: 6.33 fl oz)

Most of us know that aloe vera has quite an incredible medicinal plant which is full of nutritional benefits. These are a bit of info about aloe vera. Thought it might be helpful.

Because of aloe’s well-known healing properties for the skin, aloe is one of the primary compounds used in the cosmetic industry. It is a known to healing wounds and is great for applying topically to burns, abrasions, psoriasis and even to bug bites. Aloe is an emollient, helping to soften and soothe the skin. It helps supply oxygen to the skin cells, increasing the strength and synthesis of skin tissue and induces improved blood flow to the skin through capillary dilation.

I tried everything before giving my review. So, this morning I woke up and tried this wonderful aloe dewy foam cleanser. Wow…. it’s amazing! I like the smell of the aloe vera and with a small amount of the foam/cream it really cleaned my face very well. My face feels shinny because it’s so clean but not a dull clean. It’s value for money since a small amount goes a long way. I paid $5.99 for this tube. I also like the simple packaging. There were five different type of skincare cleanser. I chose moist and soothe in aloe. Different ingredients used for different types of skincare.
