July 2018 Facial Products Empties

Last week, I emptied all these skin care products, so happen I cleared them all at the same time! My skin care regime is quite a simple one _ these days I try to stick to just cleanser, toner and moisturizer but occasionally includes serums.

Mostly, this is because I'm trying to be a minimalist when it comes to my lifestyle and so my goal now is to empty my skin care, body care and hair care products before purchasing new ones. While I know these days 8 to 10 (or more!) steps regime are all the hype, I don't want to fall into the trap of needing to purchase so many products and over-usage of products can sometimes lead to oil cysts forming on skin, yikes! Apart from that, I don't even have the luxury of time to do extra or even apply masks these days so I really don't need all the extra stuff! *sigh*

At least not for now until signs of aging starts to show up hahaha. Crossing my fingers that won't happen too soon!

Back to the topic, here are the 4 items from my skin care products' recent empties. Photo taken just a few days before they're completely used up!

#1 SK-II Treatment Clear Lotion & SK-II Facial Treatment Essence These are two of my ultimate favorites! For those with combination skin like me, these really do a great job in stripping away oil, dirt and dead cells from your face! 

If you think cleansing is enough, wait until you use the essence! I still find brownish dirts, which really is dead cells on my facial cotton puff after wiping my face. While using these, I also find noticeable smoother skin. Unfortunately, to maintain the result, you have to use SK-II products continuously. Read my my past SK-II review where I answered several questions to help you decide if SK-II is for you. If you have more questions, just include them in the comment box and I will try to provide my opinion.

#2 Innisfree Bija Trouble face wash This is one of my favorite cleanser from Innisfree, aside from the olive cleanser because I find it deep cleanse my skin thoroughly without being overly harsh! Would definitely recommend them to y'all!

#3 Innisfree Perfect 9 Repair Skin a moisturizer which according to the website contains "Jeju's 9 anti-aging elixir complex containing 9 active extracts to fight the 9 signs of aging" which is dryness, wrinkles, flakiness, darkening, blemishes, enlarged pored and reduced skin elasticity. This is one of Innisfree higher-end range. While using this, I didn't noticed any huge change to my skin which means I am taking that my skin isn't too old yet hahahha! I still have breakouts but that could be my stress hormones or just my thyroid wrecking my hormones balance. Not a super amazing product but not a bad one either. It's just a good enough kind of moisturizer.


As for my new beauty regime, I was deciding on Skin Food's Royal Honey Essential Queen range's lotion simply because I love skin care products incorporating royal jelly as part of the ingredients. I remember at one point I used to be so obsessed with a Japanese facial lotion containing this royal jelly but I don't know why they stopped selling it here in Kuala Lumpur. I kept going around to look for it!

After lots of contemplations, I decided to choose Hada Labo's latest premium lotions range as part of my new beauty routine. Hada Labo has been expanding their range and I was surprised to find out there are so many types now! This has been on my want-to-try beauty product for a while now so now is the perfect opportunity!

By the way, I reviewed the Hada Labo's Super Hyaluronic Acid (SHA) lotion years ago and love how moisturizing it is so I really hope the premium range doesn't disappoint! In fact, I've used Hada Labo for years before deciding to experiment on other skin care brands. Follow me on my blog to check out my new beauty regime in my next post!
