Skincare routine (updated) - lots of new loves

14 August 2012

Hi petals! Finally got to blog about my new skincare routine! A lot has changed and only 1 product ever so remained faithful. If you're interested with my old skin care routine, check out  this Post.

Disclaimer: these products were personally purchased and not sponsored. Also these work on my skin type and needs. Please research or get properly assessed by professional before purchasing any of these items :) it may work for me but not for you.

I have a few concerns now that I am in my 30s. One of which is dryness on certain parts of my face. Also my age is starting to show (ie fine lines) and also skin pigmentation (ie freckles).

FYI, I have combination-oily skin. Oily on the T-zone and normal to dry on the cheeks.  

Here are the products that keep me younger looking ;-)

 From L-R: Garnier Skin Perfector (Medium); Estee Lauder DayWear Sheer Tint; REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask; TrilogyVital Moisturising Cream w/ SPF15; Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil; Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1; Trilogy Cream Cleanser; Trilogy Eye Contour Cream.


Trilogy Vital Face Moisturising Cream - my daily moisturiser and usually worn under foundation. I fell inlove with this product over 2months ago and I haven't had the urge to look for a new one. It's very moisturising and has been doing a great job this very dry winter.

Garnier Skin Miracle Perfector - is my go-to moisturiser on lazy days when I dont want to pile shiz on my face, say weekends when running the errands. It does everything you want it to do - protects, hydrates and primes your skin.

Estee Lauder DayWear Sheer Tint - this is initially my BFF in summer. Like Garnier, I use this when I am lazy to put makeup on but still have that decent "face" as if I woke up looking like a million dollars - er, ok maybe not a million dollar but you get what I mean. This gives a matte finish, great for summer when my skin tend to be oilier than usual.

Facial Cleansers
Trilogy Vital Moisturing Cream - removes my makeup and dirt (after using a makeup wipes) and just keeps the skin hydrated even after cleansing.
Neutrogena Rapid Clear 2-in-1 - my forever and most loyal blemish fighter cleanser. I've been using this product for years now and I know that they keep on improving the formula becuase it never fails to do the job for me. I use this 2x a week or more frequent if I have some stubborn (hormonal) blemishes. This can be too drying to other people so consider yourself warned :)

Eye Cream

Trilogy Eye Contour Cream - I am still trying to love this product. I mean I like it and I think it is a good eye cream and it does the job but I am yet to find THE Holygrail of all eye creams that hopefully won't break my bank. So far this product keeps my under eye hyrdrated and as for finelines, I haven't really seen much difference. This will do for now.

Home-facial Products
REN Glycolic Radiance Renewal Mask - this is one of my new favourites. I used to go for facials back when I used to get 50% off from Ella Bache and I used to go for the Glycolic Peel. I do have congested skin around the nose and chin area where my blemishes usually come out and glycolic peel cleared that out. This does the job in the comfort of my own home. I use this 1x a week and leave on my skin for 10mins then rinse. I will do a separate post for this one, promise.

Secret Weapon Trilogy Organic Rosehip Oil - I cannot say enough good things about this baby. When I put this on at night, I wake up to a baby soft skin :) I LOVE it so much. It really made an improvement to my skin's texture. It keeps my skin hydrated and balanced and heals my blemishes (when I pick them - some nasty habits). The only problem is the scent but hey if you think about the bigger picture - younger looking skin then scent is a minor thing for me.

SO there it is my new skin care routine. Hope you find this post helpful. Any questions, please leave a comment :)
what is your latest skin care routine?
