New Skincare I’ve Been Trying

As you may know, I love skincare. I have been working on finding a skincare routine that works. Like makeup, I enjoy trying and buying skincare but I do this much less frequently than I do with makeup.

During January I did an order on Wishtrend to try a few Korean skincare products. I have been curious about Korean skincare and as you know, have been using the Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop so I wanted to try a few more items from the website. I ordered the Gentle Vita Exfoliator from Skin and Lab. This is such an interesting product. It is an exfoliator that you use on dry clean skin (so after your double cleanse) and it literally balls up your dead skin and cleans off that layer of dead skin. I also ordered the Klairs SPF but have only tried this once (it’s winter what do you expect). It was really nice and no heavy so I will report back when I used it a few more times. Along the cleansing line, I bought the Camomile Waterproof eye and lip makeup remover. This is nice, but to be honest I like the Marcelle Micellar water much better than this one. This removes mascara but not nearly as easily as the Marcelle, even the waterproof mascara. If you want to try anything from the camomile line I would go with the cleansing balm.

I received the Vichy Mineral 89 from Top box circle, and this has been a lovely source of hydration for me. Would I repurchase this? Yes, I would. However, I don’t see a huge difference between the effect of this product and the Neutrogena hydro boost. However, the ingredients list for the Vichy is much shorter meaning the hyaluronic acid is more concentrated (at least from my understanding). It is also 89% their thermal water which creates a boosting effect.

I have also been trying the Body shop Himalayan clay mask. This is a really nice, clarifying, nonirritating mask. I used to the love the L’Oreal red clay mask but I found that unless my skin was super angry, it slightly burned. This mask does not burn upon application and leaves my skin feeling rejuvenated and brighter.
