Skincare Staples #01

My skincare products have revamped this year. I opted for cheaper products, comparing between the dupes and also, saved a lot!

I learned that cleanser didnt have to be so expensive, as it always leaves the skin with some makeup residues. Also, I chose to buy a toner for better skincare routine. Here are few skincare items I've been using few days ago (the cleanser) and some are months back.

1. St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub, RM19.90
After my Lancome face scrub finished its last content, I was a bit stressed out. I dont want to spend too much on scrub, it cant be used daily. So, I asked for some opinions and a lot of them said I should try St Ives Scrub. I know it is quite popular, St Ives even won Allure right? I am sold! 

2. The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam, RM42
This cleanser was an impulse purchase. I wanted to buy the spot corrector for my brother and I remembered I ran out of cleanser (last time was Fresh Soy Face Cleanser, that one was very expensive I must say!). Used it a few days and it's a so-so product. It actually feels like NanoWhite cleanser.

3. Biotherm Aquasource Instant Hydrating Toning Lotion, RM99
The last time I used a toner was probably 4 years ago, it was Clinique Clarifying Lotion Twice A Day Exfoliator 2. I cant seem to remember how I experienced it actually, but I guess it did nothing significant, so I stopped using it. This toner is like my skin saver! It really did wipe away ALL the dirts that cleanser slips. You can see yellowish-brown dirt on cotton pads! I highly recommend this for dry combination to normal skin type.

4. Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream, RM116
I've been wanting to try this moisturizer ever since I tried the sample. It is so lightweight and absorbs into my skin instantly! It feels great, doesnt leave my skin feeling oily and gives me enough hydration. I really like the almost no scent (as per usual of Kiehl's products) of the moisturizer. 

*El Nino is no joke! So drink a lot of water everyone!
