Good evening everybody!
…I just realized that I forgot two products in this routine, I guess I have too many? After the actives, I wait 15-30mins (depending on how much in a rush I am) and then I swipe off the residue with a cotton pad and my Paris Cattier Loition De Beauté Apaisante Rose & Camomille (basically a rose and camomile water) toner. Not particularly in love with this one, it’s okay and I will use it up. Second, after my treatement step I sometimes also use the Balea Aqua Feuchtigskeitsserum (hydrating serum) when my skin feels like it needs some extra moisture. Balea can be found in any DM and with 2,50€ you can’t really do anything wrong with this serum – ingredients aren’t that bad either!
Please remember that my skin never feels dry; the only problem I had was that my skin wouldn’t absorb products very well and in return didn’t get the moisture it so badly wanted. This routine will probably work well for people with slightly oily skin + acne or people like me, who despite having dry skin have acne as well. If your skin is dry and always feels dry and tight this routine might not work for you as well as it has for me because I don’t suffer from those symptoms. 🙂 Since I changed to this routine though I didn’t have any acne at all – I had maybe 2 or 3 small pimples in a month when I would have deep inflamed cysts on a daily basis before :/ A big factor is also the monthly extraction that my aesthetician does – since I started doing that, my acne has reduced significantly and my skin is overall very calm.
Disclaimer: I was in no way paid to make this post; I really use almost only COSRX products at the moment. After failing with many other brands, my most-trust earned brands are definitely Hada Labo and COSRX because they have been working great on my skin. Please always patch test new products as your mileage may vary.
Have you found your perfect skincare routine yet? I used to try out new products all the time but for the first time in years I am really happy with my routine 🙂
Have a nice day/night!
Lots of love,
