Current Skincare: Rosy


The current lineup! I like this crew better than the last because it's more hydrating and noticeably ROSE heavy! 

Nuxe Comforting Cleansing Milk (New) - Testing this and challenging myself to finish this before it expires in January! Will use it morning and evening. Backstory: I got this on sale for 60% off at Beauty Bar because it has 2 months left before it expires!

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Gentle Cleansing Foam - An old favorite. I only need half a pump of the foam as my second cleanser.

B.Liv Deep Impact (PR Sample sent by @bliv for review) - Been using this about 2-3 times a week behind the scenes for the past two weeks. Review coming soon!

Naruko Rose Aqua Cubic Hydrating EX (New) - Had this for almost two months but just testing it out now. Loving it in its first few uses.

CosRx Galactomyces 95 Whitening Power Essence - Another mainstay.

Nature Republic Rose Ampoule (New) - My very first Korean Ampoule. This one isn't a popular ampoule but it had good reviews and was fairly affordable. I wanted to try out ampoules without spending so much because I have yet to get used to them. I also thought it fitting to get the Rose variant from Nature Republic because it's the one for deep moisturization and wrinkle smoothing.

Dr. Belmeur Daily Repair Hydrating Moisturizer - This is probably the best moisturizer I have discovered this year! Our tube is almost running out because Hub can't get enough either!

Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Rosewater Mask - A favorite versatile mask I also discovered this year. Nice as a sleeping mask or a wash-off hydrating mask in the morning.

La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I. - for some pimples that have been sprouting out of nowhere. Probably dairy-connected again...I've been naughty.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Eye Cream - This is new. It replaced the Derma E eye cream I recently finished. So far so good but I'm not WOWed. Might look for other eye creams to compare.


So happy with this routine because it smells so good! My previous routine left my skin looking fatigued but then I knew it was bound to happen in my Finish-Off challenge. The previous routine did not work well together but I feel this one does! Again, I have combination-dry sensitive skin that easily gets dehydrated. For me to keep it hydrated, I have to layer very light hydrating textures or else I am prone to clogging. Rose is remarkably light and moisturizing which is why I love it for repairing and hydrating my skin gently. 

Update: After a week into this routine, my skin is looking and feeling plump and healthy again! There is a glow and less fine lines (which show when my skin is fatigued). Combined with more water intake and more sleep, my skin is looking waaay better than it did last month!
