Skin care basics

I often get some emails from my readers asking my skincare routine and the products I use. I've been meaning to make a dedicated vanity post for a long time but only this time I managed to take some pictures of them.

Here are the beauty products that I cannot live without :)

I have a very dry/sensitive skin so my major concern is how to keep my skin hydrated at all times. After switching from one brand to another (like Khiel's, Shisheido, Lancome, and SK-II), my mom introduced me to Sulwhasoo a few years ago and ever since I've been an orthodox fan of Sulwhasoo.

I use their basic line in an order of 
1. deep cleaning oil followed by Khiel's gentle forming cleanser
2. balancing water + serum (I alternate first care serum and brightening serum)
3. facial oil followed by balancing emulsion
4. hydrating cream (during the winter time)

They've been working really good with my skin and I think it'd work for you as well if you have a very dry to somewhat combination skin type. I usually buy them in bulk whenever I go to Korea (it's a little bit cheaper at duty free) but you can also get their products from Bergdorf Goodman Sulwhasoo boutique (available both online and offline store). In fact, a sales person there is really helpful and offers great promotions like a free skincare massage session or some goodies upon your purchase.

As for the makeup, I don't believe in heavy duty one so I rarely use any kind of foundations or powders. What I do is to usually apply this amazing tinted moisturizing balm from Bobbie Brown and cover some trouble spots with a light concealer. This tinted balm is just so great that I can't even count how many of them I consumed over the last 5 years. It is not as heavy as foundation but it evens out skin tone without getting it dry and gives such natural glow. Now, I sound like a Sephora sales person but seriously it's worth every penny.

After applying tinted moisturizing balm, I put some lip products on both my cheeks and lips because I am not fond of powder type blushers. And why bother wasting money on buying lipstick and blush separately? Here are some of my lip stains that I brought with me to LA (as you can see, I'm really into pop pink these days!)

Hopefully, this helps many of you who've asked me about my skincare routine :)
Night night!

  11. i love skincare posts, you make me want to try the tinted moisture balm. can you tell me what shade yours is so i can go out and get one? think i have similiar skintone and hate regular foundation

  12. First of all, I am a huge fan of your skin care reviews. I have tried this lipstick and I am absolutely blown away by its shade and texture. It doesn't feel dry on my lips.

  13. Thanks for sharing your skin care rituals. I love my skin and I always pamper it with natural and efficient products. I also use She body butter to make my skin supple and soft. I take vitamin E and C to supplement my skin and health. By the way, I love BB cream too. I think you should use it. It's perfect in concealing impurities.
