my current beauty routine~

Haro~!ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ノ I'm back and this time I want to share with you all my daily beauty/body care products that I'm using now!

Most of the brands that I'm using are the ones you can find from Watsons, Guardian or SaSa and usually the ones at affordable price range. As much as I want to investing on branded skin care/beauty products, I find most of the drugstore brands sufficient for my current needs. Also, now there are so many options to choose from in Watsons/Guardian/SaSa alone! On top of that, besides being occupied, I'm also a bit lazy *ahem* to do extra wtf

Just to clarify, ALL these are NOT SPONSORED and I bought them for my personal use. I'm not paid to write this post but am simply sharing what I'm obsessing over right now.

Let's get started!

♥ Naturals by Watsons' Olive Shower Cream

♥ Naturals by Watsons' Marula Oil Body Lotion

♥ Nivea Instant White Firming Body Serum with SPF 33

♥ Bio Oil

First up are the current stuff I'm using for bath and body care~! I find myself very into scents lately, so I'm getting a bit more particular with by body wash scent yayyy (ღˇ◡ˇ)~♥ I bought the Naturals by Watsons' Olive Shower Cream which scent I'm loving! I find the whole olive range smells really good!!

Since I'm just starting to pay a lil' extra attention, I also got the body lotion, though from the Marula Oil range. (More about these Naturals by Watson range in another review post!) This is my night body lotion whereas during the day, I'm using Nivea Instant White Firming Body Serum as it comes with sun protection and SPF 33++

The Bio Oil is actually something I've stuffed in my drawer for a bit but decided put it to good use in my attempt to get rid of the scar on my knees. I went humpty dumpt-ied and had a great fall FML (T▽T) That was weeks ago but the scars aren't going away easily because my itchy fingers had to just scrape off the scabs instead of letting them fall off when they heal naturally *roll eyes* I'm still waiting for it to work its magic..

♥ Loreal's Extraordinary Oil

♥ Dove's Intense Day Repair Cream

For my hair, I'm at my 2nd bottle of both Loreal Keratin Smooth 72-H Shampoo and Conditioner. Again, loving the scent but they're definitely not solution to my hair fall problem which I'm facing for months now! I just figure out my hormones condition could be a cause but I'm still crossing my finger I can find something to fix it...  And yes, I'm still at the same tub of VS Sassoon's Intense Hair Mask. I'm only doing the intense mask once a week now so it seems like it will take a while to finish this one LOL

As for the Loreal's Extraordinary Hair Oil and Dove's Intense Day Repair Cream, I don't use them together but simply alternate between them just to keep my frizzy hair under control.

♥ Dr G's A-Clear Foam Cleanser

Now, into the more crucial part_ facial skin care! ヽ(*´∀`*)ノ✶゚ฺ

I am using Dr G's A-Clear Foam Cleanser, something I decided to try just recently to replace my usual Avene's Cleanance Gel. I simply wanted to experiment on something different and I've heard raving reviews on this brand. So far, so good but because I'm still on trial phase, so maybe a while before I will be reviewing this in detail. I actually have another cleanser, the Tamago Hada AHA+BHA Cleanser which I forgot to include in the photo *smack forehead* I'm treating it as a facial exfoliator because I find it works really good in that department. Unfortunately for the same reason, I don't find it suitable for everyday use as it gives me breakout because the texture is simply too rough on the skin. I'm using this twice per week at most!

After drying my face, I applied my all-time favorite HadaLabo's SHA Lotion which is super hydrating _ 2 thumbs up_ and which assists in better absorption of the serum and moisturizer in the next step! A very recent addition is the Bio-essence Snail Secretion Repair Serum which I splurged on because I was pretty impressed with the result from using Bio-essence snail masks. It was on 40% off too! ☆-(≥vO) v

I usually just finish it off with Senka Hoshitsu Moisturizer which I'm crediting for giving me a more lifted, V-shaped chin! Definitely another personal favorite product of mine! And one of the key ingredient? Allow me to quote the young Flemming Prescott from the movie 'The Age of Adaline' _"made from the royal jelly of the queen bee".

(Though, fact: honey bees in general, regardless of roles, secretes royal jelly. Still, good stuff!)

Once in a while, I use Avene's Thermal Spring Water. I'm on my last bottle but I'm considering to stock up as I find I need this more now. I notice the prolonged haze is giving my forehead odd little bumps! It has always been clear so I freaked out when I first spotted them. After I sprayed with this spring mist, the bumps receded so I concluded they are caused by the pollutants in the air.. Damn you, haze! Speaking of Avene's products by the way, if you are looking for pimple cream try Avene's Triacneal, this one works like magic!

Bio-Essence Snail Secretion Repair Mask

♥ BLiv's Stem Cell Revival Mask

Watsons range Masks

♥ Guardian's Jeju range face mask

♥ Beauty Talk whitening mask

Finally, on facial masks~! I actually don't have time to do double masking _deep pore cleansing mask followed by sheet masks_ and have reduced my mask routine to merely once a week (>д<) But that only means it is important for me to choose the right mask to target my skin issues.

One of the mask I am super OBSESSING over is the Bio-Essence's Snail Secretion Repair Masks which I swear does wonders to my skin! Super duper good stuff here. They are pricey at about RM8.90 per sheet but I stock them during sales for about RM4-6ish each. Such a bummer they are not selling this in a box set, I would definitely prefer it that way...

Besides that, I also always buying Bliv Masks, especially the ones that highlights on skin repairing and rejuvenation. Not forgetting Watsons' Masks too of course!
