Current Skincare Routine (Mostly Korean Products)

Thursday, May 14, 2015
Hi everyone! Today, I'd like to share with you the products that I use almost everyday as part of my skincare routine. These products are mostly Korean skincare products that I've purchased while I was in Korea and they work well for me.


1. MISSHA Green Tea Eye and Lip Makeup Remover (reviewed here)
2. Banila Co Clean It Zero (reviewed here)
3. Mamonde Lotus Micro Mild Foam - this is a really gentle cleanser that I like to use as a second 
step. It foams up just a little and it's not really all that strong. 


1. Hanyul Optimizing Serum (review coming soon)
2. Hanyul Rice Essential Skin Emulsion (review coming soon)

Normally, I like to use a toner after cleansing my skin. However, at the moment I'm out it. If you guys have any recommendations, please leave it in the comments section :)


1. Physician's Formula Argan Oil (Night Usage Only) - I've been really enjoying this argan oil. I see a noticeable softness and hydration in my skin after applying it on the night before.
2. Iope Ultimate Hydro Cream (review coming soon) - this is a really light weight gel like cream that provides amazing hydration even in the coldest and driest of winters.


Sulwhasoo Overnight Vitalizing Mask (review coming soon) - I like to use this on days when my skin feels a bit beaten up. 


Innisfree Eco Science Eye Cream - yes, I'm still using this product. I've lost count of the number of times I've repurchased this. I adore it and I've yet to find a replacement. (Reviewed here).


  1. I'm waiting for Innisfree eye cream and Hanyul Emulsion review :)

    1. Hi Gadis :) I'm still working on the liebster tag, thanks for tagging me! I've already reviewed the Innisfree Eye Cream ( but I will review the Hanyul Emulsion soon!

  2. Hi dear
    first I am very happy to find your blog. I am very interested while reading it so thanks so much😍😍.

    I'm 27 years old I wanna your suggestions for the best :
    Eye cream for fine lines under eye and for the very dark circles
    toner, emulsion, ampoule and cream to firm my skin, smooth make it more healthy and very dewy and of course whitening objective.

    and if you don't mind. ... iam living right now in seoul i'll get crazy of how korean girls make thier skin very dewy with makeup and seem to be natural?!!! I 'vve tried many highlighters but never got the same results😕

    Finally thanks for your help and your advices 💖💖

    3. Hi Nonna, thank you for reading my blog :) For eye cream, I highly recommend the Innisfree Eco Science Eye Cream. As for the skincare line with an interest of whitening and anti -aging, I recommend Missha Time Revolution skincare line. Laneige is also very good with some of their whitening products. I also highly recommend checking out SUM37 - they can be found in most department stores.

      As for the dewy effect that Korean girls have, you can achieve it through a few methods such as 1) adding a little bit of skincare oil before you apply your foundation 2) using a brightening base (most stores have them) or 3) using a dewy bb cream (such as Iope Cushion XP or Innisfree Watery Cushion). You can also mix some liquid highlighter with your bb cream and apply it to areas that you want highlighted.

      Hope this answered your question! :)

  3. I've been loving the saem 24k gold snail mask but it's really expensive and hard to find outside korea!
    Also adoring the etude house's baking powder pore cleansing foam! Do drop by my site :)

    1. Wow! It certainly sounds expensive. If I ever happen to stumble across it, I will definitely pick it up. Thanks for the recommendation and I certainly will drop by!

  4. Hey Chrissie, I chanced upon your blog when I was researching on Hanyul skincare. May I ask how did the Optimizing Serum do for you? Besides the Rice Essential and Artemisia cleansing foam, are there any other products you'd recommend? Any info here would really help, thank you!
