Skincare Routine - Face

This is my happy Laneige skincare products (plus vaseline ;P) that I use on a daily basis at my university residence. My skincare routine changes depending on where I am at the moment (back home or at my bf's place) so that I don't have to carry all that stuff with me all the time. My alternate skincare products consist of biotherm and lancome products. I'm not sure if there's a great effect from constantly changing products, I personally don't see much of a difference in my skin as I'm more concerned about the convenience issue.

I used to use the blue line (Basic Care and Water Bank line) all through high school and into university. When I went to Hong Kong in January this year, the sales lady suggested me to use this green line designed for sensitive skin. I thought I would try it out to see if it makes an improvement.

Refiner (I just call it a toner), Essence - The essence makes your face feel so hydrated. It dries quite fast, so after drying, I can go ahead and apply the other products.

Dual Enhancing Cream (includes eye cream and face cream) The eye cream is not bad. I have used the clinique moisture serge eye gel (I forgot what it's called), and I would prefer the clinique one over this.

Water Sleeping Pack Plus - I apply this probably once per week. After applying, it feels like a mask on your face. Your skin will absorb all the water that it needs when you are sleeping. It feels so good :)

There's one downside of the green line. If I'm not mistaken, I think the price is similar to the basic line; however, the amount of product is so much less! The bottles are smaller and you finish them so fast. I use about two pumps of the essence every day, and it's about half gone.. and I've just used it for a bit more than 3 months :( (remember I'm not in my residence 3/7 of the time so I don't use these products every day)

Lastly I use vaseline for my lips, dry areas on my foot, and so on. I have such dry lips :( If I don't moisture my lips for a day or so, I'll have bloody lips.. Anyone do lip conditioning treatments, or if these treatments even exist? I use lip blams when I'm going out, but I haven't found one that can give me as much moisture that I need as vaseline. Please let me know if you have similar lip conditions as me and have any suggestions on what I can do.

Much Love.

Just stumbled onto your blog. I'm glad Laniege water pack works for you. I was just staring at the jar last night wondering how I'm going to chuck it out. For some reason the fragrance in it doesn't make my skin happy. Thanks for sharing your skincare routine.
