A few weeks ago, the #GNO Gang; Michelle, Kimberley, Sheng Mae, Cynthia, Sandra Woo and myself were at Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur for a staycation to celebrate our #PradaPrincess' (it's Kimberley btw) BirdDay.
And you know when girls get together we talk about EVERYTHING and that includes make-up and skincare routine. We started comparing products and routine but mostly learned A LOT from our very own make-up guru, Sandra Woo (we keep telling her to start a beauty blog). OMG, she can go on and on and on about what's the best serum or oil for which skin problem and the rest of us just listened and nods and take mental notes.
Before we went to bed, she taught me her night skincare routine and I was like...
"HOW MANY PRODUCTS DO YOU PUT ON YOUR FACE?"
"Damn chat a lot, Babyyyy. It looks damn mahfan but I find it very therapeutic."
And her answer shuts me up
"BECAUSEEEEE... WHEN YOU'RE 60, YOUR WILL LOOK 30!"
Sooooo... Thanks to Sandra Woo, my night and day skincare routine takes longer than usual now because I am now a Korean skin care routine convert, people!
So here's a list of products that I use daily now;
1) Cleanser - Purity Made Simple by Philosophy
2) Exfoliating - Clarisonic Mia2 (Night only)
4) Eye Cream - Freshel Lift Moisture Eye Essence by Kanebo (Night only)
6) Emulsion - Anti Trouble Emulsion by Yadah
7) Moisturiser - Aloe Vera Gel or Dr. Jarts V7 Relief Vita Drop (Day) / Moist Steam Cream by Nature republic
8) Sleeping Mask - Water Sleeping Pack by Laneige (Night only)
I've timed my routine and it takes about 20-35 mins -__-". It's all about the layering, you guys!
But OMG guyssss... The result is just crazy awesome! This is probably the only time I feel good about my skin in my whole adult life! You know those little white thing you have under your lips, the little annoying ones? I used to have a lot and that area used to be rough. I'm also prone to breakouts around that area especially during hormone change. It's so annoying! But now, they've petty much cleared and I couldn't be more happy.
And now, as much as I hate to admit it, I look forward to my night skincare routine. Sandra was right, it is VERY therapeutic.
Thanks, Sandra. I love you!
