After Tet holiday, and I have to say after using makeup for a while my skin broke out like crazy. Maybe it’s because of I used cheap makeup… or like I have some situations going on with my period (…can blame this one). So I think i’mma need to take good care of my skin or it’s gonna be so fucked up.
My makeup routine is getting back to how it is: Lipstick only. Well sometimes I may use some concealer n eyes shadows on but not very often since i get more n more lazy :)) um, but still, for some important occasion, or like whenever i feel boogie af, i’mma put dem on (still not go ok with foundation since i haven’t found any drugstore foundation that make me feel comfortable with).
Alright alright, so here’s what I use for my skincare:
- The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Solution: AM & PM
After using Acne.org for awhile and got really good results for a year, I have considered to use like powerful stuff for my acne, cause I didn’t really have a chance to continue order more Acne.org stuffs (1, It’s a bit up price; 2, the way too big bottles last longer and cheaper but I don’t feel very sanitary with em, 3, it would take more than a month for the delivery…).
So this guy is a direct acid, pretty strong tho, I use twice a day, AM & PM, feel pretty good tho, but I have to use sunscreen more cause you know this acid would exfoliate and make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
2. The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution:
My god I’m obsessed with all the Ordinary packaging, like I mean the whole Deciem things: packaging, description, how their website design… It’s hard to find Deciem product here in Vietnam, I have only see like 2 shops selling the Ordinary and only one selling the Fountain (I’m not into this cause this is like beauty water, kinda fancy thing). I can’t find Niod and Hylamide. Maybe I can try ordering some, but i hate waiting for delivery tbh. I’ve read comments online and people have really good cmt for the Niod line (a bit up price), I can’t wait to try.
Ok back it again with this baby. This is another kind of direct acid, but like a more powerful one. It’s pretty strong actually so they recommend not to use this more than twice per week and only at night time. I did and feel pretty good afterward. I mean I have use these two babies for almost a week now and I feel fine with them, I can see my skin improve day by day.
One more thing I love about this one is the colour and texture of it. Man, it’s super fucking close to blood :)) I feel fancy like using blood facial every time I use this one. About the smell, none of these two smells good tho, i have no expectation.
3. The Body Shop – Tea tree skin clearing & mattifying toner:
Good old days! I haven’t use this one for like a year, but after trying out with others I still have to go back for this one. This is like a pretty good deal actually, cause I get the 250ml for only 260k.
They changed the packaging, look cooler :)). um the funny thing about this toner is that there’s a layer of mattifying powder at the bottom so you should shake em up before applying. These’s really helpful for my overly oily skin. I use this one like all fucking time!
Say no more!!!
BTW I really want to try other products from this tea tree line of The Body shop like mask n cleanser kinda thing. hmm waiting for my salary :)))
4. Vichy – Normaderm Correcting Anti-Blemish Care
hmmm Vichy has such an amazing line for acne skin like the Tea Tree line from the Body shop. I have been using Vichy products for more than 3 years now and I’ve never had any problem with any of them. The only thing is that I feel this one may take like slow effect. You have to use them for a while and then slowly see things work out for your skin. I love the Normaderm line, smell so good, so purifying, fresh and gentle.
I have use half of the bottle, AM only after using the ordinary serum. I have mix feeling about purchasing this product again. It’s very gentle, moisturize the skin but sometimes I feel like it’s too gentle. hmm i’mma think about that. Still like it anyway!
5. Vichy – Normaderm Nuit Detox
Another product form Normaderm line, for using before I go to bed.
I don’t like the smell of it comparing with the previous one. I see my skin’s getting better day by day tho. Hope this one can detox my skin for a better result.
I don’t really use any cleanser at this moment. I’m still looking around to find one that suit me, the one I’ve tried before or a brand new one…
