Morning routine

April 22, 2007

I admit, I’ve been buying new products recently, and even my evening skin care routine has changed significantly. However, the basics are still there.

1. Cleanse with Bliss Fabulous Foaming cleanser. This removes any oil/dirt/grime and even leaves my face with minimal shine even after a couple of hours. I tried this last night, and was surprised to see that my skin was not as oily as before after a couple of hours. Also, this doens’t leave that awful tight skin feeling.

2. Tone with Clarins Toning Lotion or SK-II Facial Clear Lotion.

3. Ole Henriksen Truth serum. Not oily at all, and completely fantastic smelling.

4. SK-II Facial Clear Solution or Dermalogica Oil Control Lotion depending on what my skin feels at that point in time. Actually, I use Dermalogica’s Oil Control Lotion when I’ve got zits ‘cos it helps to prevent zits and kills them with the ingredients it has in them. The SK-II Facial Clear Solution is for days when my skin feels a little parched.

5. Kiehl’s Sodium PCA Moisturizer used only on my neck + collar bones to rehydrate the skin there.

6. Kiehl’s Abyssine Eye Cream or Bobbi Brown Hydrating eye cream. I can’t stress enough on the importance of eye cream. Prevention is better than (trying to) cure.

7. Clarins UV PLUS SPF40. You’ve heard me enough about ranting on about sunscreen.

After this, I just apply whatever concealer (Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage) on where is needed.

Share with me your morning beauty routine too!

Bliss – Multi Task Mask

April 21, 2007


5 different masks: Brightening, breakouts, exfoliating, lifting and soothing. While the result is superb, the mixing of the powder into a mask is such an annoying thing to do. The lady said that it’s good if you to put on a serum under the mask. So I put on the Ole Henriksen Truth Serum and left it to dry. Then, you basically take about half a table spoon of the powder, add in water until it’s a bit gloopy and spreadable. Use your own judgement on this. You slather everything on, and keep on slathering on until you see more of the grey stuff than your face. It’s going to be dripping all over, so do it over the sink with your head tilted back. Then, kick back until the mask literally rubberizes. Nudge the mask and throw the rubberized crap into the bin. Wash off any crap stuck around your hairline, and you’ve got perfect skin. Follow with toner and then a moisturizer. Perfecto skin!

Ole Henriksen – Truth serum collagen booster

April 21, 2007


I’m a sucker for anything that promises perfect skin. This skin booster has Vitamin C Complex 10% that is calming, healing and collagen strengthening. Anti-oxidants such as Green Tea Extract and Rosehip extract fight off environment aggressors. Hydrating ingredients such as Sodium Hyaluronate penetrate deep into the inner layers of the skin. It also has Licorice extract that even out pigmentation and Grapefruit+Orange extract for purifying and brightening. What I love about this serum is that it calms down sensitive skins and is both a preventive and corrective product. Very highly recommended as it left me with super soft and super bright skin!
