Current skincare favorites

It might look like I bought a lot of products and threw my money off the window, but rest assured, most of them are cheap samples that I bought to test out lol.

Let’s jump straight into the contents!

The popular Laneige cream skin toner

People were raving about this toner for the longest time and I had to get my hands on them to try it out. Luckily, they had a mini version so I opted for that since I’m not sure if this will break out my skin or not. I bought mines from Yesstyle.

So far testing it, my skin has not reacted badly, and I must say that this product really lives up to its expectations! The consistency is really watery, but it feels very nourishing and hydrating on the skin. This product will be perfect for spring/fall/winter time since it adds extra hydration. I have yet to try this during summer so I will add more contents when that time comes.

Pony Effect’s Everlasting Cushion Foundation

I always see people reviewing Pony Effect’s products on Youtube but I never got to try one myself since the website I usually shop at doesn’t carry my shade and I’ve always perceived the price tag as being super expensive.

One day I browsed through Yesstyle and realized that they don’t have shade #03 as well. 🙁 My current cushion was also running out at that time so I thought, why not just give it a try? There was only Nude Beige (#02) left in stock, so I tried that. Only then I realized that the price tag was high since it came with an extra refill! When the product came, I tried it out immediately, and surprisingly, it fit my skin tone! The finish was also really smooth with medium coverage and the longevity was quite good since I didn’t need to touch up until 6 hours later. Overall impressed! Will definitely repurchase this one.

Clio Kill Cover Glow Cushion in #4 Ginger

You can tell from the image that I didn’t really use this cushion since it has accumulated dust lol. I bought this before I discovered the Pony Effect cushion because the ‘glow’ trend was really big back then. However, I realized that I could only use this in winter since it’s super dewy and oily even during spring! My makeup would look so disgusting after several hours and it just offed me from using it ever again.

It’s quite unfortunate, but I guess I just need to wait for winter to come and see how it goes.

Rose skincare from Aromatica

Back to skincare. To be honest … I don’t even know why I purchased these things lol. There was a 40% discount for skincare that contains rose ingredients and these products from Aromatica was on sale because of that. Now, I’ve mentioned before that I’m a sucker for discount sales, so… Yeah… You get it. Moreover, I checked reviews for these two products and most people gave them high ratings. However, I haven’t given them a try yet since I’m trying to finish up my Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum and Pyunkang Yul toner lol. That aside, the packaging is glass! I’m sold.

That’s it for my random skincare and makeup post! Hope you enjoy the randomness as well lol.

  1. You take such great care of your skin! I could never take the time to research or even buy all those things. I do want to try to take better care of my face, but I don’t even know where to start. I need to find a good face wash that doesn’t cause break-outs. All the ones I’ve tried so far causes me to have pimples after using them. Sigh. Anyways, I’m glad you were able to find the correct color for your skin as well. Nothing is more annoying to get something that doesn’t match your skin tone.

    1. It’s never too late to start a skincare routine! I’m not really familiar with the western beauty products, but if you’re seeking for asian beauty products, then Stylekorean or Yesstyle is a great start to shop from! You can also follow skincareaddiction in Reddit. They have lots of information regarding skincare there!

  2. I’ll have to check them out then! I know it’s going to be a trying type of process until I find the right facial soap. I have done some research, but I been so busy. 😥 The toddler keeps me occupied 24/7. Well, not all that time, but during the whole day.
