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.
