I have been doing this routine for about a year now and i've been happy with my skin.
These are skin care products that i use both morning & night:
1. Cleanser/Face wash: Murad Clarifying Cleanser
2. Face Scrub: Kiehl's Epidermal Re-Texturizing Micro-Dermabrasion
I've been using this face wash for about a year, immediately i can see a difference. At that time, i was struggling with acne, this face wash helps get rid of it. Murad products in Indonesia is quite pricy, but i wouldn't mind spending a bit more on skin care. Especially, knowing it made changes in skin. Highly recommend for people that is struggling with acne.
I don't use scrub every single day, i only use it at least twice a week. Scrub is great to get rid of any dead skin on your face and smoothen you skin. I usually use scrub before i apply face mask. I personally love this scrub because of the how small the beads are. I feel that with the small beads it really scrubs your skin. This product leaves my skin feeling very smooth. Recommend this product if you're looking for a new scrub. Actually have just finished the product, need to purchase a new one!
3. Toner: Clinique Clarifying Lotion
4. Acne treatment: Clinique Spot Treatment Gel
5. Moisturizer: Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream
After i wash my face, i continue with a toner, i use Clinique's Clarifying Lotion. This helps to take of any makeup residue or dirt on my face that the face wash didn't pick up. I don't know why but i can't skip this step.
Following with that usually i use a spot treatment on areas where needed. I use Clinique's Spot Treatment Gel. This is the only product that has help me with my acne. I tried a few, but this gives quicker result than any other spot treatment that i have ever used.
Last step is moisturizing, i use Kiehl's Facial Cream. I really love this product, i love how it makes my skin feels and the consistency of this product is really good, not to thick or to thin. It gives the right amount of moisture for my skin. I have normal skin type, sometimes i get dry patches around my face. This helps prevent that. Also after i wash my face, my face feels really tight, this product helps getting rid of that feeling.
This product is also works very well under makeup, since it sinks in to the skin quite quick and in my opinion my makeup looks better when my skin is moisturized.
6. Face mask:
These are two of my favorite face masks.
The first one is the Soap & Glory's The Fab Pore Facial Peel. I prefer using this before any event or special occasion where i want my skin to look at its best. Because this product gives instant result to my skin. It leaves my skin feeling very soft and clean, which is what i want. As it suggest on the back of the packaging, you can leave this mask for 5 minutes for a quick cleanse or 15 minutes for deep cleanse. Either way, i feel that this just gives the best result for my skin.
The second face mask is Origins' Clear Improvements, this is a charcoal mask. Charcoal mask is actually very popular. I love this product for deep cleanse, usually i use this one a week to really clean my face. Like some mask it gives a tingling sensation, so if you don't like that feeling, you might not like this product. But i really don't mind it, because i feel like i know that the product is doing something.
7. Make-up remover:
I use quite a lot of makeup when i go out. These are my favorite products to take them off.
I really love Bioderma, haven't found a product that can take off my make up as well as Bioderma. Bioderma will take most of the makeup off. But Bioderma doesn't really take waterproof makeup, such as mascara or eyeliner. Also, i really like how this product feels on my face, because it really feels like water, even though i do still wash my face with soap afterwards.
On days where i wear waterproof eye makeup, i will use Sephora's waterproof eye makeup remover. Best one i have tried so far. I have gone through so many of this. It is just really easy to take them off and doesn't sting your eyes.
Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation has become a must-haves for me. I bought this foundation last year and been wearing it since.
This foundation claims to last until 15-hours, with medium - buildable coverage and natural - semi matte finish. I use this foundation on a daily basis and i can see that this foundation does last on my skin. The coverage on this foundation is amazing, i can hide any imperfections such as acne or any discoloration on my skin with one layer. The finish on this foundation is amazing and doesn't feel heavy on the skin!
Incase you're wondering, i'm using the shade 3W2 - Cashew.
This is Anastasia DipBrow Pomade, love this product ever since i got it. Everyone is raving about this product, didn't really grab my attention at first. When I finally got my hands on this product I finally understands. I use the color dark brown.
This product has the same concept as a gel liner. This product is waterproof, no smudging or sliding and it's highly-pigmented. For people out there that loves their eyebrows on fleek, this product is for you!
It might take time for you to get used to using this product. But it's worth the try.
I know this product is everyone's favorite. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle.
What i love about this product is because i can use it on day to day basis with a light layer or build it up for special occasions.
Also, this product can be use for any skin color. I've used this product on fair skin, even on me (medium skin) it looks beautiful.
Personally i love highlighting and strobing is a big trend right now. Even though, i dont think strobing has took over contouring. It's a different thing.
Best mascara ever!
This is a Korean product, Salon De Cara Roll Brush mascara by Clio. I have to say Korean knows make up.
This mascara provides length and volume just what i want. It does not clump, it actually coast all of the lashes. Keep in mind this product is waterproof.
This mascara's formula at first can be a bit wet. But, after a few uses and the formula start to dry a little it works just fine. Actually gives a better result.
We all know mac has the best lipstick and lipliner. These are 2 of my favorite lipstick, Russian Red and Taupe, and Spice lipliner.
Mac's Russian Red is the perfect red in my opinion. It compliments my skin tone at least, but i've seen people with different skin tone using this lipstick and it looks really good on them. Mac's Taupe is the best nude for my skin tone. I have to say finding the right nude for my skin tone can be a challenge, since most nude washes me out. But this color does not and it is the perfect color.
After seeing Kylie Jenner bringing the 90's look back, everyone been on the hunt for their perfect mauve-ish, brown-ish, nude lipstick color. For me Mac's lipliner in Spice is the perfect one. I use this lipliner almost everyday when i dont feel like using color on my lips.
NYX Matte Bronzer hands down best drugstore bronzer. The color might be warm so keep that in mind. But if you have medium skin tone you might like this product. As you can see i really love this product, i hit pan on it and that's rare for me. Because i really love trying new products, that i forgot on some products and never able to finish it.
This product gives the perfect warmth to the skin without looking to muddy or chalky. And very easy to blend!
After trying different eye shadow pallete, i have to say this is my favorite, Stila's In The Light Pallete.
The range of color in the product is amazing, there are few cool tones and warm tones. Plus they have matte black and brown, which is a must for me!
For travelling this is what i prefer bringing. Not just the range of color, but also the pallete is self is very thin which is very easy to travel with.
