May 2014: Updated Skincare Products

Since it's summer season, I wanted my face to feel light so I trimmed the products that I use on a nightly and morningly(?) basis and if you wanted to know what I'm using before plus the extras please go to My Current Skincare Products post.

Let's start with the morning skincare products:

Laneige Moisture Power Essential Skin Refiner
I thought that this is like an essence and I blame the refiner in the name for buying this.  This is a really good toner:  it's not drying, with minimal tingling sensation, it does soften the skin and removes residue from my cleanser if I don't rinse my face properly, but at the same time expensive as a toner.

Laneige Water Bank Essence
I got four 15ml of this essence and it's light enough for summer yet moisturizing enough for me to sometimes skip an emulsion or cream.  This is a bit similar to the Missha Super Aqua Essence that I tried before but this one is more moisturizing while the Missha one is more refreshing to the skin.

Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Eye Cream
I got this eye cream in sample sachets because it's so darn expensive!!!  My undereyes is still the same as before but I like it in the sense that it just moisturizes without being heavy even if this cream is thick.

Missha Super Aqua Hydrating Emulsion
I ditched moisturizer during day time and replace it with emulsion.  Although it takes a bit time for my skin to absorb emulsion, it's not as heavy as a cream yet it moisturizes almost like a cream during summertime.

IOPE Mild Sun Cream
(link from a similar product)
I use this instead of the Missha emulsion when I'll be out under the sun for hours.  I like how it gives my skin a nice glow and it doesn't make my face look flat and white.

For my nightime skincare routine, I usually use these products:

Laneige Moisture Power Essential Skin Refiner
Same as above but I make sure that during nighttime, I use cotton pad to apply this product to really just make sure that my face is free of make-up and other gunky stuff.  I sometimes just put this toner at the palm of hands and apply it on my face on my morning routine.

Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule
The bottle is gorgeous and so is the content (mine is just the 10ml size).  This oil-and-serum-in-one (well to me) ampoule just brightens my face, my skin is glowing in the morning when I wake up.

Sulwhasoo Concentrated Ginseng Renewing Eye Cream
Same as in my morning routine.  Sometimes, I use this after my moisturizer.

Olay Regenerist Wrinkle Relaxing Cream
Not my favorite cream but I got this for free when I bought the serum from the Regenerist line.  It's thick that turns into somewhat powdery after some time but that's not what I'm not into it...there's a weird grits that I'm feeling when I'm applying this but it seems smooth in my eyes (unless the grade of my eyes went up again, uh oh).

Do you change your skincare products in every season of the year?
p.s. for the prices and other details of the products, just click the name and it will lead you either on amazon or to the online shops of the brand or to someone else blog where I heard the product


  1. You have some great products :)

  2. I think I only change moisturizers. I switch to serums in the summer. The olay radiance serum is good.

    1. will look into that serum when I'm done with all my stock :) thanks

  3. I know the looms are supposedly for children, but you can make such cool designs and I can’t help it!
    So many nice products that I would to try!!!!! Everyone loves Laneige and Iope, they say they are really good brands and Missha the Time revolution Line is so tempting too!!
    I don’t exactly have the habit of changing a lot of things between winter or summer but you should and it seems that you even should change a little of your routine when that annoying time of the months comes along, because our skin and hormones also change a little. The Korean make-up artist Jung Saem Mool advices to use an aleo vera gel before our normal routine, when the time of the month arrives, that’s why I want to get an aloe vera gel.

    1. the looms are so colorful, very summery....I think we watch the same video ahahaha for me though I have to reduce the amount of products that I use for summer because it's just so hot


Share that amazing thought!
I do reply and you can also leave your blog's link so that I can visit it. Thanks :)
