Happy new year everyone. I will start this year with a post on my night time skin care regime.
I will start with makeup wipes. I bought this in Daiso. Daiso has so many different type of makeup wipes and I will eventually try them all. For $2 I start with this wipes. It kind of remind me of wet tissues. It is really wet, so if you use this in air con room, it’s really nice and cooling. The wetness is good for removing makeup including waterproof mascara. I really like that, unlike wet tissues. It comes in 30 sheet per box, really nice for a monthly wipes.
Then I will wash my face with Cle De Peau Creme Demaquillante, which is basically a cleansing cream. I really like it. It removes makeup really well. If I forgot to use the wipes, I will just use this and it removes my makeup just as well. This doesn’t hurt my eyes, so it’s really good to get rid of waterproof mascara. It leaves my skin soft without needing to use actual cleanser.
After brushing my teeth and stuff, I will use Nuxe Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals to tone my skin. This smells amazing. The rose is not that strong, but rather lovely. It feels nice on the face. Very gentle and refreshing.
I will use Nuxe 24h Soothing and Moisturizing Cream next if I am super tired. But most of the time I will use this after eye cream. This moisturizer is indeed very soothing. It has this scent that calm you. At first I don’t really like it, but eventually I fell in love. It is thick but blend really easily. I like that. It’s not overly oily on the face, and it’s great for night time as when I wake up, my face will be really refresh. The moisture is all absorb into the skin.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair was my night serum. The first time I use this, I woke up with a super awesome glowing skin. It lasted only a day as the next day my skin is back to normal. And eventually I started breaking out around the forehead and cheek. After much analysis I figured this was the culprit. True enough. Though it was only a sample, I felt I had to finish it. So I just use it once a week. Except on that first day, I don’t think I see a difference with my skin. So this is a no for me, but I know many people love it. Oh the scent is also quite off putting. Exactly of herbal scent, the unpleasant kind.
Estée Lauder Re-nutria Eye Creme is used after serum. This is really rich and only a tiny amount is needed each time. I was frustrated with my black under eye, I used to lather this on. I then found out milia was growing. Upon research I found out that I used too much eye cream. And so I found that this is a really good rich eye cream. This is 15ml and will last forever, but the lifespan of eye cream is 6 months and its in a container so better follow that guideline.
So cleanse, tone, serum and moisturize, the next step is to use mask. Those sheet masks at least.
I had been using Sexy Look Intensive Firming Duo Lifting. As you can see, the hole for the eye is rather tiny. At least the right one is. It is extremely uncomfortable. I don’t have a problem with the blue one. And all the masks in the box is the same. So maybe I got a bad box or it’s like that. This mask is moisturizing even though I only leave it on for awhile, not the full 15 minutes. So that’s about it.
After the mask, I will use acne cream if I have spots and lastly I will apply a lip balm.
