Hiya! Just thought of sharing my current skincare routine as I find that it’s working good for me. Little to no breakouts and skin is smooth; which I attribute to a few particular products that I will introduce to you. I got to this current routine as I was trying out several products for their promised results and found out that even though they are from different brands, they do not clash with each other (phew!), so I continued.

The Face Inc Cleansing Gel & Active Toner

A good way to prep the face for absorption of the goodies coming next is to thoroughly cleanse the skin of impurities and dirt. I find that these two products from The Face Inc are not bad, in terms of leaving the skin feeling refreshed and clean. There are many types of cleansers and for my combination skin type, cleansing gel is ideal as compared to cleansing foam/oil/cream/powder. If you find that your cleanser is not working very well for you, perhaps it’s time to switch to a different type!

The Face Inc Cleansing Gel has mild exfoliating properties as well, so there is no need to add a scrub in the routine. It helps to balance the skin’s pH, softens and conditions the skin as well. It smells nice like green tea.

The Face Inc Active Toner is alcohol-free, and contains AHAs to help remove the top layer of dead skin cells to stimulate regeneration. I find that this toner is effective in helping to smooth the skin and lift excess dirt off the skin.

You’ll be surprised, The Face Inc is an online skin consultation service that suggests the exact products that will best suit your skin concerns. This saves us ladies the headache of figuring out which products to use, especially when what we feel we need may not always be the one we do need.

Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel

I have been using this daily morning and night for about close to a year. I fell in love with its results and have been faithful since. It helps to keep my eye area moisturized and soft. Even though I cannot prevent the onset of wrinkles, I think without this product, the situation would be worse.

Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution

Another one of my faithful exploits, it is pretty effective in brightening my skin tone rapidly. Meaning, after I’ve spent a day out in the sun, this beauty treat helps to clarify and brightens my skin with a potent complex of activated Vit C, White Birch and Peony. It eases discolourations, for example like my chin area where the skin tone is not very even.

What I like about it is that it can be used as a spot corrector, or on the whole face for an overall effect. I usually use this in the day and switch it for the Midnight Recovery Concentrate at night.

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate

 This is the newest incomer to my skincare routine, but I am LOVIN’ it so much. After using this at night, it has become obvious to me that my skin exudes a warm glow when I wake up. It is simply something that you cannot not notice; no wonder it’s dubbed an elixir. Haha this is definitely a keeper for the night routine. I shall get the retail size once my sample size runs out.

This lightweight, readily-absorbed elixir effectively restores skin’s healthy appearance overnight, resulting in smoother, more radiant complexion by morning.

La Roche Posay Effaclar DUO+

This product is described as corrective unclogging care, anti-imperfections, anti-marks.  Which I find it so so true. All I have to do is apply a thin layer onto my pimple bump, and the next morning, the bump would have either subsided or disappeared. It is super effective.

I also apply a thin layer over my nose, chin and forehead to prevent clogging so that pimples have little chance of developing at all. It melts away blackheads so that when I have to do minor extraction, I do not need to squeeze excessively that leave marks on my skin. It works as a preventive measure, and also a cure. I am also planning to get the retail size after I’m done with the sample.

Yup so that’s a roundup of my current skincare routine. If you are looking to brighten your skin, you can check this article with a roundup of the best whitening products and tips!
