Using Facial Products

Nope this is not a sponsored post, neither is it an advertorial.

It all started when I was chatting with Kat on msn, who is currently working in P&G, specialising on Olay & SK-II products.

She told me on her not-lazy days, she would apply up to 11 products on her face. I went WHAT?! I thought I was hardworking when my daily regime consists of 5 steps. *stares at Kat*

What my regime (on non-lazy days) consists of:

Day time:
– Skin Food Black Sugar Bubble Foam Cleanser [ I’m a fan of foam cleansers, there is no fixed one that I use ]
– Su Hyang Snow Beginning Serum
– Su Hyang Snow Boosting Toner
Su Hyang Snow Essence / Dr. Beauty Ion Whitening Spot Corrector [ I alternate between these 2 ]
– Su Hyang Snow Balancing Fluid / Balancing Moisturiser
[I don’t usually put on make-up, but if I do, there’s an additional step of BB-cream here]

Night time:
Peeling Day White Jewel [ Alternate days ]
– Skin Food Black Sugar Bubble Foam Cleanser
Marine Step Cell Cell Revive Mist Toner
Raspberry ROOTS Collagen Eye Patch [ Once / Twice a week ]
– Mask [ Once a week ]
Su Hyang Snow Maximising Gel Cream

Mine used to be all Su Hyang Snow ( from THE FACESHOP ) products, until I explored other brands like Marine Step Cell ( also from THE FACESHOP ), Dr. Beauty ( from THE SAEM, in Korea, not available in Singapore ). So far so good, no major outbreaks for the past 3 months.

And what Kat’s regime consists of: [ Copied and pasted from the list she gave me ]

*Morning [Days when I ‘m not lazy & when I remember I have a bad complexion]
1) Cleanse face when showering
2) Facial Clear Lotion – Toner
3) Facial treatment essence – Miracle water
4) Facial Treatment Repair C [Maintain skin renewal & reduce fine lines]
5) Whitening source derm definition [targeting spots on my face]
6) Moisturiser
7) Facial Treatment UV Protection – Sunblock
*8) Eye Cream [If u have dark eye rings like me]
9) Olay Touch of foundation
10) Concealer [If you have pimples or occasional blemishes like me]
11) Pigeon Powder [Most people will use loose powder/compressed powder]
12) Blusher

*Night [Nights when I’m not defeated by the exhaustion of the avalanche of work]
1) Cleansing Oil [Clean make up] Some people use wipes
2) Water [Oil & water emulsify to give a thorough cleanse] If you use cleansing gel, can skip this step
3) Cleanser
4) Facial Clear Lotion – Toner
5) Cellumination Mask In Lotion [Boost Aura, radiance & whitening] *Optional
*6) Skin Rebooster [Wipe off gel mask for hydration during shower]
7) Facial Treatment Essence – Miracle Water
8) Facial Treatment Repair C [Maintain skin renewal & reduce fine lines]
9) Skin Refining Treatment [Exfoliate dead skin & refine clogged pores]
10) Signs Up lifter [Prevent Skin sagging & Aging]
*Occasional mask every 1 or 2 weeks is highly recommended.

This was what went on in my mind when I saw her list : -_-!!

I’m impressed. How can one be so hardworking every morning??

But then, the face is ours. We should take good care of it, regardless how lazy we are.  Personally I don’t think there is a right or wrong to a regime, as long as it suits you. So that’s mine & Kat’s regime, what about yours?

  1. Hi where did you get Su Hyang Snow essence? It’s hardly on the shelves anymore. Heard it’s discontinued or something like that. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Fion,

      the last I checked with Faceshop, they are discontinuing the Su Hyang Snow series. Currently they only have stocks left for the Boosting Toner, Balancing Fluid and Balancing Moisturiser..

      I even checked with the Taiwan outlets when I was there in Dec, they told me the same thing.

      It’s sad 🙁
