My Beauty Holy Grail Products
Today I wanted to share a few items I must always have on hand. These are items I have back ups of because the thought of running out and not having it makes me cringe!
Vitamin C Serum
There are so many benefits to using Vitamin C serum but the main reason why I use it is because it speeds up the heeling process of damaged skin. I have a lot of acne scars on my cheeks and since using this serum I definitely feel that it has decreased and lightened the scars.
Ok so I know most women can’t leave the house without mascara but for most Asian women, we can’t leave home without eyeliner. I have used high end department store liners and I always come back to this one. It’s from the drugstore, it’s affordable and the brush works so good. FYI, I use Ultra Black.
I know I sound like a broken record but this eye cream is seriously the BEST one in the market. I have yet to find another eye cream that’s better than this one and yes, I have searched high and low. This cream is thick and works really well for night time (I use a different eye cream for the day because this one is too rich and thick for daywear– at least for me it is). I know this is a bit pricey but in my humble opinion I think it’s worth it… But for those of you on a budget, I linked a few other eyes creams I like that are a little more affordable.
Yes, I have another serum on my list. I have used this serum since it was introduced to the world. Again, I have tried several face serums and I always come back to this one. This serum has improved the texture of my skin and being in my mid-30’s I feel that it is helping me stay youthful.
For years I used toners that contained alcohol and I didn’t realize I was striping my skin raw! I’m so happy I discovered this beauty water because it’s so gentle on my skin. It is fragrance free and it leaves my skin feeling soothed and moisturized. This beauty water is actually a twofer– you can use it as a toner as well as a make up remover. I haven’t tried it as a remover but I’m sure it would work well.
Micellar Cleansing Water
I use this to remove my make-up every night. It’s so gentle and it draws out my make up, sebum and all of the dirt leaving my face clean. If you wear foundation or heavy make up, you should be using some kind of cleansing product besides your face soap. Face soap will NOT get rid of all of the dirt off your skin. This one can be a little pricy so I linked a similar drugstore version below.
I’ve mentioned this cleanser before and I still like it a lot. It is fragrance free and it works well with my clarisonic. It’s a good face cleanser that gets the job done and it is a holy grail but to be 100% honest, I have been liking another cleanser recently.. I linked it above, maybe i’ll talk about it in another post.
