Step 1: Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser & Heimish All Clean Balm

I am sorry that I forgot to take pictures of my facial cleanser and make up remover. If you want to read my post on cleanser, then I’ll link it HERE

Low pH gel cleanser from the brand Cosrx is my holy grail cleanser for my sensitives skin. If you are suffering from sensitives skin and acne prone skin, then I highly recommend you to use this cleanser. This is such a great cleanser for dry sensitives and acne prone skins. It balances your pH level and helps to get rid of your acne.

Step 2: Aloe BHA Skin Toner (daily) & Klairs Supple Preparations Facial Toner (weekly)

As you can see, there are two toners that I use right now. For my daily facial toner, I really enjoy using Aloe BHA Skin Toner from Benton. This is another great toner for sensitives acne prone skin. Now, my skin has become so smooth, and clear from all blemishes. It contains lots of great ingredients for sensitives skins such as aloe, snail and more.

And if you are wondering about Klairs Supple Preparations Facial Toner, I use it about 2-3 times per week as calming toner/essence. I use it to do the 7 Skin Method, and I’ll update about that method later. Sometimes, I pour this toner on my cotton pads and use it as a sheet masks. This is a great tips if you have tight budget and can’t afford too many sheet masks. It has citrus smell and very refreshing. It is also great in calming down red, irritated and sensitives spots on my skin.

Step 3: Missha First Treatments Essence

Essence is like the heart of korean skincare routine. They use essence to brings back all the moisture that lost when you cleanse your face or from the dry air. And they also use essence to treat their damaged skin. Here is an important tips to treat your damaged skins-you have to make sure that your skin cells is fully hydrates and full of moisture. It will boosts the effectiveness of your next skincare products/treatments.

Step 4: Cosrx 96 Advanced Snail Mucin Power Essence

Since I have dehydrated skins, I usually apply another essence to make sure that my skin is fully hydrates. I choose Cosrx Snail Mucin Power Essence because this product is so lightweight, suitable for sensitives skin and doesn’t leaves any sticky residue. Whenever I use this, I can feel that the hydration goes deep down my skin. And I like how refreshing this essence. I only use 1 pump and it is enough for my whole face and neck. A little goes a long way.

Step 5: Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum (daytime) & Missha Night Time Repair Borabit Ampoule/Iope Multi Vitamin Ampoule (night time)

I use different serum for day and night routine. For my day time routine, I use 1 pump of Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum for my whole face and neck. Since I have combination skin types and more to dry side, my skin love this serum so much. It gives cooling effects, moisturize and hydrates my skin very well. It leaves some healthy glow complexion, so if you have oily skin types, then you might want to use it on night time only.

For my night time routine, I use two serum alternately. Currently, I’ve been loving Missha Borabit Ampoule and Iope Multivitamin Ampoule. If you want to read my reviews on Missha Borabit Ampoule, then you can click HERE

Iope multi vitamin ampoule is an facial treatment serum that contains vitamin B3. B5 and vitamin C as well. This serum is so lightweight, but its quite sticky. As you know, vitamin serum or treatments tend to be quite sticky. But, it should be no problem since I only use it at night time only. This ampoule really calms my sensitives acne prone skins, it has citrusy kind of smell and doesn’t irritates my skins at all. It helps brighten my overall complexion, and help lighten my dark acne marks. If you can’t afford the Missha ampoule, or if you have severe scars/hyperpigmentations/dark spots, then I’ll recommend you to use vitamin C treatments.

Step 6: Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning Emulsions (day time) & Laneige Water Sleeping Mask (night time)

And of course, we should never skips this step, moisturizing steps. I also use different products for my moisturizing part. I choose Cosrx Natural BHA Skin Returning Emulsions for day time because it really control my oily T zone. And since it contains BHA, it helps to control my acne/bumps.

I got this small sample of Laneige Water Sleeping Mask from Hermo.my. And this sleeping mask is one of the top korean skincares products. But, since my skin types is more to dry side, I don’t feels that this sleeping mask gives enough moisture for my skins. However, I like its scents, and its so lightweight. It also doesn’t leaves any greasy/sticky residue.

Step 7: Sunscreen

Sunscreens is the most important steps. You need to always apply your sunscreens to protect your skins from harmful UVA and UVB. And it also helps to prevent further damage on your skins. I really enjoy this Regen Cosmetics Ultra Sungel because it is so lightweight and doesn’t leaves any white casts. It also doesn’t irritates my skins. Some sunscreen tends to make my skin become oily and greasy especially around my nose, but thank God, this sunscreen never make my skin become oily. This is like my holy grail sunscreen. Highly recommend it! ❤

So, thats it for my skincare routine. Remember, YMMV. These products works great for my skin types but not necessarily works on your skin types. Please, always remember to read other reviews as well. Okay?

Well, since I started using korean skincare and follow the 10 steps skincare routine, a lot of my friends compliment me about my glowing and healthy skins. They always said that my skin looks moist and hydrates. Alhamdullilah ❤
