Products I use just to wash my face.


I am not a beauty junkie neither do I change my products often but growing older I feel the need to taking care of my own skin.

A little bit about my face. I don't have good skin. I have open pores, various scars from my childhood of just being rough- popping acne thinking it didn't matter - combination skin. I never had a skin care regime until like 2 years ago and I am in my late 20s!

So here is the products I use just to wash my face:

1. Peter Thomas Roth

Anti Ageing Cleansing Gel ( which I only use at night) + Blemish Buffing Beads For Face and Body (once a week only)

My mom actually introduced me to PTR two years ago and they are on my skin care products list ever since. Their face wash has actually recovered my skin from my horrible teenage hood / adulthood phase. Originally started with PTR acne cleanser and POOF all my acne cleared since!

3.  Innisfree

My sister and I went to Seoul a couple years back and it was by far one of the best trips we have went on together. She is a beauty junkie unlike me and she wanted to get a product from Innisfree and I was bought into the idea of having all my beauty ingredients from Jeju Island. LOL.

Their Apple Juicy Cleansing Oil is a product I use if I do wear makeup. But let me tell you.. UNLESS you have perfect skin and whatever you use - your skin is perfect anyway.. I don't recommend this product.

Don't get me wrong. It didn't give me breakout/ made my skin dry / clogged up.It just didn't do anything. So, not recommended by me.

2.  Etude AC Clean Up Daily Cleansing Foam

I was originally using the La Mer Cleansing Foam and it quickly became one of my "empties" but the price point was just too unbearable for me so I was going around the shopping mall one day passing by the Etude pop up shop. I love Etude from my trip to Seoul  and I think what got me interested in their brand was when one of their sales girls just telling me how good this product was for my face. I am one of those consumers where by if you try to sell me something and tell me a story which I could related to - I'M SOLD!

So back to the cleanser. Obviously it is no match for the La Mer but I just love the smell on this cleanser. After washing my face, it actually doesn't feel like stripping my skin just like the La Mer and feels moisturised until the day after! So I am using this cleanser for now and so far, I love it.

4. DHC Cleansing Oil

So, since I was using the not- recommended Innisfree cleansing oil, I decided to look up reviews of best cleansing oil when I was in Japan. The number one product that came up was the DHC Cleansing Oil and let me tell you.. it is ah maaaaaaay zinnnnng.

It just washes everything off and feels super moisturised after that. Feels good after washing my face with it. I don't know how to describe it to you without over selling the product. You just have to buy it!

That's all I have for now! Next would be the products I use just to hydrate my face!
