The Essential Skincare Routine!

Happy Saturday, friends! It’s time for my skincare routine and I like to share them with you. Ta-da! These are some of my essential skincare that I used on a regular basis while the others on waiting list.

body wash and skincare body wash and skin care

First of all, let me¬†share with you some of¬†the skin care and facial wash that I used and have started using recently for my review on my last week’s post. So, I’m going to start by¬†doing my favorite Aveeno¬† skin care products.

aveeno cleanser aveeno daily moisturizing lotion

On the bottle¬†it says, “Aveeno Ultra Calming Foaming Cleanser formulated with naturally calming Feverfew that gently cleanses and softens dry, sensitive skin. And it’s fragrant free.” It came in regular size bottle of 177 ml.

While on this big bottle, it¬†says “Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion with natural colloidal oatmeal which clinically proven to relieve dry skin and moisturizes for 24 hours”. Bottle size is bigger, it’s¬†a¬†532 ml bottle. This lotion is dermatologist recommended.

Aveeno is a new brand name for me. I started using them like a year ago. I usually use Dove or St Ives. But then I switched to Aveeno and I’m happy with the products so far.¬†Nevertheless, ¬†I’m always¬†on the hunt for different types of facial cleansers¬†from high streets to high end brands.

I have been using both of these products regulary and it keeps my dry skin moisturized both body and face.

balea scrub exfoliant dove energy glow facial cleanser

Balea scrub exfoliant is a new brand for me.¬†I haven’t heard it before.¬†Sorry for my ignorant. Anyways, while I was window shopping I came across this exfoliant which¬†was on sale¬†and so¬†I sort¬†of bought it on a whimp.¬†I simply like the packaging.¬†I had¬†it a few months ago and I like the tiny exfoliating beads when scrubbed on my face.¬†It has I believe¬†apricot and walnuty scents. I like the¬†smell now¬†after awhile. It was strong for me at first but it’s about getting used to it. The exfoliant cream is brownish in color. It does what an exfoliating scrub should do. My face looks cleaner and all the dull skins varnished. Yay!!! Oh yes, it’s recommended to use once or twice a week only.

Dove Energy Glow foaming facial cleanser for normal to dry skin in 150 ml tube. This¬†cleanser contains both ultra-fine exfoliants with 1/4 moisturizing cream. It’s like a 2 in 1 instant coffee type of function.¬†It gives skin glow and look great. I have used this in the past and it’s almost finishing as you can see from the state of the tube. It’s going to be empties¬†blog soon.

Koa biore facial wash tonymoly facial wash

You must have seen these Kao Biore and TonyMoly facial wash in my¬†previous blog. It’s in my last Sunday’s post. These two are my most recent buys¬†of facial wash todate.

Lancome royal body lotion

Last but not least is the Lancome Nutrix Royal Body intense lipid repair cream for very dry skin in 2.0 oz. I got it in a gift set given to me last Christmas.

Oh my goodness!!¬†Lancome’s¬†lotion is amazing.¬†I really love it’s awesome¬†scents and most importantly is¬†I felt the softness of my skin immediately when I applied it on. I¬†love the cushion-soft feelings on my hand¬†and it’s lightweight. The cream absorbs very quickly preventing moisture escaping (chuckle!). I will repurchase it again. It’s one of my favorite.

I hope you like reading this post as much as I like showing my skincare products with all of you ūüôā

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation|Review

Maybelline Fit me

This is one of my latest Maybelline foundation and I have been loving it so far. I like the consistency of the texture and it smells real amazing. It has sheer to medium coverage and it blends so well. I have no problem blending it and just love the soft and smooth feeling on my skin. It provides a very natural looking coverage. Once the foundation sets, I would say that it gives a semi-matte finishing or dewy finish which by the way not oily. If you have combination oily skin, then using it with Maybelline Fit Me Powder will do the trick of covering the dewy finish to matte finish.

Maybelline fit me swatch

The color swatch in 315¬†Soft Honey seems a little bit orange-y tone. I was shocked at first glance when I did the color swatch¬†but¬†once I tried it, I just love it. One¬†warning¬†is that this foundation tends to changed color once it’s on your¬†skin – due to oxidation. On my buffing brush¬†the shade is similar as¬†the¬†color swatch above and¬†it blended out amazingly. This foundation sets quite quickly. Therefore, I have to say, my vote of satisfaction for¬†this product is absolute. There are many different color shades to choose and make sure to spend some time to test the¬†shades before getting them.

The other side of the coin is that it claims to have SPF 18, but the sunscreen doesn’t seems to have an adequate¬†UVA protection for the skin. Losing some of the important ingredients¬†of making the sunscreen¬†better. Note: Shades # 330, 340, and 360 do NOT have sunscreen.

I like the glass bottle packaging but I would prefer that the top bottle opening has a pump applicator. I’m clumsy at times and tend to drop my makeup or accidentally pour out too much liquid especially when I’m in a¬†hurry.¬†But other than the lower SPF, I’m finding true love with Maybelline Fit Foundation.

My¬†2 cents of this foundation is that it has¬†excellent quality and great value for money. I might say that i’s quite close to the Makeup Forever dupe foundation. I will definitely repurchase. Love it!

I would love to know what color shades will you get?

Thanks for taking the time to read.
