products used in daily skin care regime
So many products! From left to right: Cremorlab T.E.N. Cleansing Gel Oil, Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser, Mizon AHA & BHA Toner, SK-II Facial Essence Treatment, Indeed Labs Hydraluron Serum, AHA Liquid Gold, Mizon All-In-One Snail Repair Cream, Dermalogica Intensive Eye Repair (in front).

I start off with the Cremorlab T.E.N. Cleansing Gel Oil as my first cleanser. Then, I use Sunday Riley’s Ceramic Slip Cleanser as my second cleanser. I then tone with the Mizon AHA & BHA Toner, followed by an all over application of the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. As I am waiting for the essence to absorb, I pat on Indeed Lab’s Hydraluron serum on my eyelids and underneath my eyes. Immediately after that, I dab Dermalogica’s Intensive Eye Repair on to the same areas around my eyes. Every other night, I then swipe Alpha-H’s Liquid Gold all over my face as my last step. On alternate nights, I end with Mizon’s All-In-One Snail Repair Cream instead (and would have exfoliated with Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant after the two cleansing steps and before the toner).

nakanit – Current Regimen (Oct 2016) – from left to right (back row): Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, Rodan + Fields Acne Treatment Sulfur Cleanser, Yon-Ka Invigorating Mist, Cremorlab Mineral Treatment Essence, Aromatica Sea Daffodil Aqua Gel Cream, Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30; front row: Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum, Cerave Eye Repair Cream

My current regimen does not include an oil-based cleanser (melbatee and I will explore the merits of double cleansing at a later post, stay tuned!). I use Rodan + Fields’ Acne Treatment Sulfur Cleanser as a spot cleanser for just my nose, and Fresh’s Soy Face Cleanser for the rest of my face. After rinsing off the cleansers, I follow with a few spritzes of Yon-Ka Invigorating Mist, and then pat on Cremorlab Mineral Treatment Essence. I then apply Jurlique Herbal Recovery Advanced Serum¬†and Cerave Eye Repair Cream (I don’t apply my serums in a specific order. As long as it gets on my face, I’m happy). I finish things off with Aromatica Sea Daffodil Aqua Gel Cream for nighttime or Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion for daytime.

I don’t use masks regularly. I try to use one every month at least, but it depends on my feeling and what my needs are that day. Check out our reviews of the products we use and have used!
