SWIPE LEFT to see my skin transformation after using these four products from SK-II for 28 days! . I started this challenge myself as I was really curious as to how effective were these four products and whether it was all worth the money. . 🌼(Before)Day 1: My skin was clogged with a few active breakouts and a lot of redness around my cheeks. My skin was not at its best condition as I just came back from a month worth of travelling in humid countries! . 🌼(After)Day 28: My skin is definitely a lot better! My skin is now smoother with little to no clogged pores, overall brighter & even complexion. Some pigmentations are still there but I know it will eventually fade away with patience. . . πŸ“Can I give credits 100% to these four products? Of course not! But using these four products definitely gave me positive results and did not cause any skin issues to me. Just always remember that it takes more than just applying products topically. I did eat way healthier these few weeks and exercise a lot more. Plus, I was using different products for my morning routines and I used masks occationally. The most important thing was that I definitely reduced picking on my face - my worst habit. . . I enjoyed all four but my favourite would definitely be the SK-II treatment essence and SK-II Genoptics Aura Essence. I still have a good amount of each products and will be using them continuously! *secretly I am happy that I have completed this challenge as I am now not restricted to just these four products every night - I like to use different products based on how my skin feels* . πŸ’‘Now the most important question : was it worth the hefty price? Although I did see positive results from these four products, I must say no- it is not really worth it simply because I know there are plenty more affordable skincare products in the market that could deliver similar results. I bought them during the Sephora sales mainly to feed my curiosity towards SK-II *I was also desperate to fade my acne scars. But if you are willing to spend more, I definitely recommend trying out their treatment essence and Genoptics aura essence first! . Will write up a more in-depth review for each productsβ™₯️
Day 13 #skinemmies2018 🌞 SPF @apieu_cosmetics Madecassoside Sun Cream . Key ingredient : Centella Asiatica Leaf Water & Madecassoside . I am almost done with this product and already ordered a new tube ! I own a couple of different sun creams and this is one of them that I would keep reaching for as it has such good ingredient lists. It contains no harmful ingredients and it is packed with centella asiatica (40%) which greatly helps soothe and repair the skin barrier - making it really suitable for acne prone and sensitive skin 😊 it comes in a 40gram tube that makes it travel friendly. This sunscreen does not leave any white cast and it leaves the skin feeling moisturised! Perfect for winter as it only has an SPF of 39 , PA++. During summer I tend to reach for a sunscreen with SPF 50 , PA+++ instead 🌞 . Price : Β£7.80 on @yesstyle πŸ˜„ .

Day 11 #skinemmies2018 πŸ’•Treatment What is a product that really helped treat your skin?! . . @larocheposayuki Cicaplast Baume B5 soothing repairing balm . I basically use this as a moisturizer, sleeping mask and spot treatment πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜Š . I find it hard to pick a single product for this category as I use a good amount of facial products to help treat my skin. I feel to treat the skin really takes way more than just applying skincare products. . But the main reason why I pick this particular product is that whenever I feel my skin is not at its best (going to breakout/redness/dry/freshly popped pimple) and I am looking for something simple and nourishing, I will always use this product! . I always use this as the last step of my skincare routine. On days that I would love to have an extra moisture, I will apply a thicker layer. I also use this as a spot treatment on a freshly popped pimple or to calm down a newly surfaced acne. I love how moisturising it feels on my skin πŸ’• . . Price : Β£4.87 for 40mls (so affordable!!) . . . . #skincarediet #skincareblogger #abcommunity #abskincare #larocheposay #balm #moisturiser #cicaplastbaumeb5 #cicapair #medecassoside #skinrepair #calmingskin #skincareregime #skincareproducts #skincareaddict #skincarejunkie #skincaretips #skinlovers
Day 9 #skinemmies2018 πŸ™ŒMultitasker πŸ’¦#hadalabo hydrating lotion . Key ingredient : hyaluronic acid . Few ways I love using this product πŸ’§As a gentle cleanse by applying generous amount on a piece of cotton in the morning to wipe away any possible impurities built up during sleep πŸ’§Use it as a hydrating toner by just applying one layer πŸ’§Layer them 3 to 7 times for a hydrating boost (so hydrating that I skip my moisturizer after this sometimes and go straight into sunscreen!) πŸ’§Apply generous amount on a few thin piece of cotton to use it as a quick hydrating mask . . Love how it has a watery consistency, feels light on the skin and hydrates the skin really well too! It's also so affordable πŸ‘Œ . #skincarediet #skincareblogger #skincareregime #skincareaddict #skincaretips #japaneseskincare #hadalabojapan #hydratinglotion #hydrating #lotions #abcommunity #abskincare #skinlovers #skincarereview #multitasker
Day 7 #skinemmies2018 πŸ”§Beauty tools . A ceramic massage tool (gua sha) tool that I bought from @yesstyle for around Β£4.90 😊 . Let me just say I don't use this often on my face but when I do, I usually use it with an oilier product or after a mask where there's a lot of essence left.*never massage on dry face!* For example, I do use this tool with my Klairs vitamin C serum as I find it a little oily and takes time to absorb, so I thought why not use this time to massage my face too πŸ˜› Massaging the face increases circulation and helps to absorb the products better. Most of the time I use it to massage my calves hehπŸ‘£ . I did recently bought a beauty tool (an electronic one) from #yesstyle can't wait to receive my package !!! πŸ™ˆ .

Day 6 of #skinemmies2018 exfoliator πŸ”Ή@pixibeauty Glow Tonic Key ingredient : 5% Glycolic Acid . What time did you go to bed last night ? I slept around 11.30pm πŸ™ˆ .

Day 4 #skinemmies2018 : Brand My pick @cosrx πŸ’• What is your favourite brand ?😊 . It all started with their pimple patches and then I continued to try at least 70% of their products! I have been using their products constantly since 3 years ago where I was really struggling with acne and clogged pores.

It's affordable price point kept me going back to them too. . β™₯️ Really loved it and will repurchase πŸ’• I like it but would like to try other products instead ! πŸ’” Below expectations/ did not work well with my skin .

Day 3 of #skinemmies2018 πŸ’¦Face mist . @avene_uki AvΓ¨ne Thermal Spring Water Stay . πŸ“ As I don't use a towel to dry my face after washing my face&showering (to reduce bacteria transfer and to prevent further moisture lost), I simply love using this face mist to close up the pores and to calm the skin down. I usually let it sink in while I brush my teeth 😁 not a 100% nessecary step but there's just something about face mists that feels so relaxing β™₯️ . Bought this from @bootsuk for Β£13 (300ml) . Discovered this fun November skincare challenge #skinemmies2018 hosted by both @antiagingamber and @morethanjustskin , support !!!😊β™₯️ . #skincareblogger #skincareregime #skincare #facemist #skincareproducts #calmingskincare #instaskincare #skincareaddict #abcommunity #iloveskincare #skincarechallenge #novemberskincarechallenge #asianskincare
A quick snap with my current favourite moisturizer πŸ’§ . πŸ“Έ Oil-free Moisturising Lotion with Birch Sap by @cosrx . Key ingredient : Birch Sap (70.8%) which is known for its anti-inflammatory and hydrating effects . Been using this moisturizer every morning for almost a month now! I honestly love the texture of the product as it moisturises my skin without feeling there's something on it. I don't think that this product is moisturising enough to be used just by itself during the winter months though, so I usually layer a hydrating serum before using this lotion. . I can't say I have noticed any reduced inflammation after using this product as I do use a combination of other products. But one thing for sure this product did not cause any breakout to me ! . Extra thumbs up as it comes in a pump as well! Makes it so much more easier to use and definitely more hygienic. It comes in 100mls which makes it travel friendly too ! It's just such a simple, yet effective product that makes me keep reaching out for itπŸ’• . πŸ’ΈI got this from @hermomy for RM75 . Also available on @yesstyle for Β£18.78 . πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ . #abcommunity #asianskincare #koreanskincare #kbeauty #kbeautyaddict #lightmoisturizer #skincarediet #skincareblogger #skincareregime #skincareproducts #skincarejunkie #cosrx #acneproneskin #birchsap
Can't miss #texturetuesday ! . πŸ“Έ @skii Genoptics Aura Essence πŸ’§ . It definitely feels more like a serum although it is named as an essence.
