This is a very special post by far. I’m really excited to be collaborating with a Korean skincare brand which I’ve been raving quite a bit over at my Instagram feed. First of, I want to say a big thank you to Laneige Canada for this amazing collaboration.

I wanted to share with you a current favorites post focusing all on Korean skincare. I’ve been getting lots of compliments about my skin lately so I thought I would go ahead and share some of those things with you.

#Laneige Water bank essence

I’ve added a couple of cool stuff to my evening skincare routine to not only give myself a little bit of that TLC but also to really improve the appearance of my skin because as the weather gets colder and dryer, I noticed that my skin has been looking dryer than usual. The tightness of my skin wasn’t as tight as it used to be. Hmm…

I know that I need to be working a little harder to maintain things so this is a Laneige Water Bank Essence and it claims to work for all skin types.

In case you’re wondering how this stuff works, in summary this luxurious formula delivers around-the-clock hydration and protection for a supple and silky skin. I’ve been trying out for a week now and I’m quite pleased with the result on my skin appearance. My skin looks so much brighter and radiant, not to mention more hydrated.

Water Bank Moisture Cream is a rich and creamy moisturized cream that retains long lasting moisture for your skin. It works as a barrier to help retain the optimal moisture levels. Since using these products by Laneige, I’ve noticed a positive different in my skin. It’s super nourishing and works hard to soothe any rough areas.

When using this cream, I like to apply a decent layer to my face and neck after the essence and serum. It’s creamy and exceptionally hydrating. So, definitely give this one a go!

I’ve always wanted to try out the Water Bank Eye Gel and my dream came true when I saw this in my mailbox. Yes!!! I was so excited that I get to trying it out and love it to bits. I’ve been using it every night and I kid you not, it’s the best eye gel I’ve tried by far.

Keep your eyes peeled! Best eye gel cream that I’ve been coveting lately. The lightweight texture and cooling effect is like no other. Gone are the days of my tired and pouty eyes when eye gel come to the rescue. I’m not saying it for the sake of saying but it actually works so well for my tired eyes. I highly recommend it!

Water bank mask by Laneige

I’m obsessed with this Water Bank Soothing Gel Mask. It’s my first time trying out a gel mask from this brand, I’m completely in awe by how smooth and baby soft my skin feels after. I noticed that 30 minutes later my skin feels absolutely hydrated and soft the entire day. It’s really cooling and relaxing when it touches my skin. There’s a lot of products in the individual pack and I use the leftover gel to apply them on my neck and chest area. I’m not about to waste any drop of this precious gel. I love how the material hugged closely to my face contour without slipping off, it’s definitely not like those other brands I’ve tried before.

It’s really impressive! If you’re intrigued by how amazing this sheet mask is definitely give it a try, I’m absolutely sure you’ll love it just as much as I do. This comes in a pack of 5 sheets for $31.00. It’s a splurge but so worth it!

For the ultimate indulgence for authentic beautiful skin, you got to experience them yourself. These would make a wonderful gift for your loved ones. All products mentioned is available at Sephora worldwide.

So, here’s some of the inside scoop of my current skincare favorites and I like to switch up the products that I use every now and then.

Drugstore Mini Haul|Aveeno First Impression

 

Hey everyone! The past weekend shopping involves a stop to my local drugstore to pick up a few skincare products to try out for you guys. I was tempted to go all the way out but reminded myself that I’ve way too many skincare products, and I opted for just two products that I actually need right now.

Aveeno Brand Spotlight skincare

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I’m obsessed with pretty much every Aveeno product new or old. I’m at that age where taking care of my skin is no longer an option but a necessity. I’ve been loving their products since day one of my blogging days and none has yet to disappoint. It’s safe for me to say that Aveeno is an amazing drugstore brand when it comes to being affordable and convenient.

Long story short, I picked up Aveeno Makeup Removing Cleanser and their Fresh Essentials Daily Exfoliating Scrub which I’ve been so excited to try out.

This is the only one that was sent to me previously by some sort of a pr package but the other two items I got them from the drugstore. And it’s the Targeted Tone Corrector to helps even tone and fade the dark spots. I’m thankful to be sent this product and thrilled to try out.

Tone corrector aveeno posivitely radiant

I’d have to say that I’m quite surprised with the formula of this corrector. I was expecting it to be a little thicker in consistency to other products that I’ve tried but this one is  just right. It’s a thin cream that dries up fast which is good since you’re supposed to use it in addition to the moisturizer and other makeup stuff. It has a natural and mild scents that’s not irritating nor too overwhelming. I find it pleasant and quite like it to be honest.

It says on the packaging to apply directly to areas with uneven tone and dark spots twice a day before your moisturizer.

There’s a particular uneven skin tone on my left cheek that I want it gone. So, I’m going to continue testing it out and update you guys with the development in another 2-3 weeks.

Aveeno makeup removing cleanser

My current favorite go to Makeup Removing Cleanser has to be the Aveeno Positively Radiant for smooth and soft skin. The soy extract works incredibly well to remove makeup and cleans my skin while keeping it radiant.

Trust me, this cleanser is gentle and it cleans all the makeup and residues right away leaving skin smooth and soft. Just look at this insanely glorious foaming happening here. My skin is screaming with joy right now.

For the purpose of this first impression review, I did my makeup early in the morning and then use this makeup remover to cleanse my entire face and it works so well. I’m pleasantly surprised on how effective it cleans and make my skin feels so fresh and not drying at all. My skin feels really good, I mean it feels great!

Don’t take my word for it, you gotta try it. It’s really that good!

Aveeno exfoliating scrub

I was looking for an exfoliator that’s more natural and I really like this daily scrub. The mini beads are quite subtle and gentle that it’s hardly noticeable compares to other brands that I’ve tried in the past. It says on the packaging that it’s for daily exfoliating but I’m going to stick with my routine of 2-3 times a week.

One thing to remember is that this is a exfoliating scrub and not a cleanser so don’t expect it to foam or lather. I’ve had no break outs or dryness while using this. I can immediately notice the difference on my skin tone after I exfoliate and rinsed. My skin looks brighter and feels so smooth. It feels like a layer of protection covering them.

Scrub Aveeno fresh essentials

I love the amazing scents and the mild texture is just so relaxing while leaving my skin feeling fresh, clean and smooth. The scents doesn’t bother me at all because I love a good fresh and clean smell after cleaning. I’m not overly concerned with scented skincare when it comes to all natural ingredients used in making of these products. I’m not telling you this is good or bad, you’ve to decide it for yourself. All I’m saying is that it has a  fragrance, a little on the strong side so if you’re sensitive to that then this may not be for you. But if you’re like me and love a nice scented southernwood plants than you’re going to like this one.

This really met all my expectations and I’m excited to try more stuff from Aveeno. You can find all the products I mentioned here at your local drugstores or nearby Walmart.
