Hi guys! As you know I’m quite obsessed with my skincare and I constantly switch it up depending on my skin’s condition and needs as well as on the current season. Believe me – I tried a lot of products in the last years; from drugstore, to high end, natural cosmetic to K-Beauty. Finally I can say, which brands work best for me and I want to share them with you today!
PS: I’ll have a few discount codes for these products, so if you’re interested in trying them as well, keep reading until the end of this post.
Step #1: Cleanser
I tried a lot in the past. Oil Cleansers, Foam Cleansers…basically every kind that’s out there. But in the end I always came back to the Korean Brand Innisfree. Its Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam is a bestseller for a reason!
The cleanser is formulated with Jeju volcanic clusters, which help to remove oil and cleanse the pores. I used it when I had troubled skin but also stick to it while my skin is pretty clear at the moment.
Step #2: Toner
Not going to lie – my favorite skincare products are facial toners. I don’t know why, but I just love to use them (and again, I tried a LOT). Also I think facial toners are quite important within your skincare routine (at least I get the feeling that they are, haha).
At the moment I use the Beauty Water by the Korean brand Son & Park. It’s a super mild and refreshing toner, that’s perfect for the summer time. It smells heavenly like lavender, tea tree, peppermint and rose flower and leaves your skin fresh and moisturized. Just put it on a cotton pad and gently apply it to your face. Also it’s one of the products that I re-bought during my trip to Seoul and that means a lot with all the other new and innovative beauty products that are around there!
Step #3: Serum & Facial Oil
In the beginning of 2019 I started to work for a natural cosmetics brand called OLIVEDA, so I had a lot of time to test out their products and they became favorites of mine quickly. Especially the F06 Facial Serum combined with the F63 Facial Oil is one of my holy grails by now!
OLIVEDA is a natural cosmetics brand and is known for replacing the 70% water part in cosmetic products with the leaf elixir of the olive tree. This elixir let the tree live up until 4000 years – so the perfect anti-aging ingredient!
I especially swear on the F06 Facial Serum – there isn’t a serum out there that gives my skin this perfect glow! Already after using it for a few weeks, it helped me getting rid of red spots and irregularities.
When I want that extra shine, I combine the F06 Serum with the F63 Facial Oil. These products go perfectly together (this combo / set is called the “Love Duo“). You can mix them on the back of your hand and then gently apply it to your face.
Normally the OLIVEDA products are quite pricey (worth it of course!), but the Summer Sale just started and you can get exclusive 35% off the entire range with MANASUN for a limited time only (20/6/19 – 30/6/19).
Step #4: Face Cream & Eye Cream
When it comes to Facial Cream I use different products in the morning and in the evening. Again, I like to switch up my facial creams depending on the weather or season. In the summertime I prefer a lighter cream during the day time and use a “heavier” in the evening.
My current eye cream is the Jeju Orchid Eye Cream by Innisfree. I actually got it during my trip to Seoul and now I can’t get enough of this! It soaks in immediately and leaves the sensitive area around the eyes smooth and moisturized. No wrinkles in sight!
A.M: Moistfull Collagen Water Jelly Cream by Etude House
A super light facial cream on a gel base – perfect for moisture, but not too heavy. It also kind of cools down your skin, which makes your pores appear smaller (and who doesn’t want that?!).
P.M: F07 Anti-Aging Facial Cream by OLIVEDA
In the evening my skin needs a richer moisturizer so I like to use the F07 Anti-Aging Facial Cream by OLIVEDA. Don’t let the name fool you – you can also use the “Anti-Aging” cream even if you’re under 30, because OLIVEDA products work preventive (and not when it’s already too late, right?).
The cream has a super rich texture and I use it before going to bed – so it can soak in during the night. I wake up super refreshed and glowing like a goddess, haha.
Step #5: Lip Products (Scrub & Mask)
Sometimes we forget how important lip care is! So the last step of my routine is based around the lips. I usually do this step only in the evening before going to bed.
I use a lip scrub for example the Velour Lip Scrub by Jeffree Star Cosmetics – the brand is not that important, I also loved to use some from Lush as well! But: use a lip scrub based on sugar, so you get that light peeling effect.
But now on to my holy grail when it comes to lip products: the Lip Sleeping Mask by Laneige! You can put on a great amount before going to sleep and wake up with full and smooth lips.
