Skincare routine for sensitive-dry skin
List of my skin care routine at night for sensitive and dry skin.
Optimal Tolerance Micellar Water pH 5.5 & Panthenol
Perfect, removes all makeup but doesn't irritate the skin.
🌼𝒦ℯ𝓎 𝒾𝓃ℊ𝓇ℯ𝒹𝒾ℯ𝓃𝓉𝓈: This got a whopping 77.78% Gaomi (rice) extract. It also has niacinamide and rice bran extract. Rice extract is known for its rich antioxidant compounds, including Vit E, ferulic acid and oryzanol. The bran on the other hand contains moisturizing polysaccharides, omega fatty acids, and a lot of nutrients. All of these work synergistically to brighten your complexion, make it look more radiant, supple and younger looking. 🌼ℱℴ𝓇𝓂𝓊𝓁𝒶𝓉𝒾ℴ𝓃: What caught my attention was its 2 distinct product densities. The first layer is watery, the other layer is more of like an emulsion. So you need to shake it first before using. 🌼𝒜𝓅𝓅𝓁𝒾𝒸𝒶𝓉𝒾ℴ𝓃: After cleansing, I take a few drops at the palm of my hand and massage them well across my face. This has a very watery milk consistency. Very lightweight and easily absorbed by my skin. 🌼𝒞ℴ𝒾𝓃: Php1200 for 150ml, which is perhaps a little pricey compared to other k-beauty toners. But if you have a room in your budget, I would say it's a worthwhile product. 🌼𝒱ℯ𝓇𝒹𝒾𝒸𝓉: I think I've found the one. This is so perfect for my oily-combo skin! I have been using this consistently for ~3weeks, day & night. What I love about this is I can layer it bec it's very lightweight and fast absorbing (I love layering my toners & essences) it didn't make my skin feel greasy at all. And you can already see the instant glow right after application! I haven't seen any significant improvement on my pimple marks though (need to use it more to see), but the overall complexion of your skin will really improve. So if you're after the instant brightening effect and you have the budget, go for it!

Dive-in Low-Molecular Hyaluronic Acid Serum
I received this product for free from Picky and Torriden in exchange for my honest review. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Price: Around $20 for 50 ml Packaging: Clear plastic bottle with a dropper Key Ingredients: Glycerin, Combination of 5 different weights of Hyaluronic Acid (Hydrating & Moisturizing) Panthenol (Vit B5), Allantoin, Madecassoside (Calming) Malachite Extract among other flower and root extracts (Antioxidants) What I liked: Viscous, gel like texture that has a nice slip on the skin Spreads and absorbs well and does not feel tacky Gives an intense boost of hydration to the skin Gentle and helps to calm irritated skin Can be paired with anything and everything Gorgeous pastel blue color that is due to the Malachite extract This is a really nice, lightweight serum that will suit all skin types. If you're looking for a boost of hydration, this is a really good option. The texture is enjoyable and it has no fragrance or artificial/added colors so it should suit even the most sensitive skin. I've been using it everyday in the AM and PM as my first serum after applying my toner(s). It absorbs really well and does not feel tacky or sticky. It's 50ml so it will last quite a long time as well. I generally don't advocate for stand alone HA serums as it is found in so many(practically all) products already but if you're looking for a hydrating, calming, skin-barrier repairing serum, this is a great option.
Acne Pimple Master Patch
I feel like I'm hiding in a cave for just trying this last week 🤣 (my first pimple patch) Idk where I get the impression that this does not work, and I never bothered to look for this. But last week, I decided to try this because I'm having a stubborn acnes around my forehead. And impressed and surprised that it sucked out gunk out of my pimple. It does work! It is pimple-size friendly and do not descriminate lol, big or small, this pimple patch has the size for it 💜
Madagascar Centella Hyalu-Cica Water-Fit Sun Serum SPF50+ PA++++
I received this product from @go.picky & @skin1004_korea for my honest review. SKIN1004 - Madagascar Centella Hyalu-Cica Water-Fit Sun Serum SPF50 PA++++ - 50ml is a Hyaluronic Acid & Madagascar Centella Asiatica combo spf. The texture is very lightweight & somewhat watery💧. Extremely easy to blend with no white cast, no greasy aftermath, & a dewy supple finish. The super star 🌟 duo, hyal-cica provides ample mositure along with calming & soothing effects. This combo combined with the serums other properties including 7 types of sprout extracts like root & cocoa. Also, niacinamide & adenosine which all together leaves the skin bright, bouncy, tight, protected, & of course hydrated. No harmful ingredients included which supports our ecosystem & reefs. A huge 🥰 in my book! It has a slight fresh scent but this dissaptes almost immediately. Great for sensitive skin & does not sting the eyes. This spf does wonders ✨️ from protecting & supporting our skin to protecting & supporting our environment. This is a big COOL 😎 for me & a new addition to my top 5 spfs! Worth the try for sure!!!
