Look at that, I’m finally back on the blog with some skin care essentials, a.k.a. my skin care favorites for December. It’s been a long time (well, it’s been a month but still) and a lot has happened in the past few days I haven’t had time to sit down and write. Anyway, just a little catch-up: Happy December, everybody! I’m honestly kind of sad I didn’t have time to squeeze Blogmas in on my schedule because seriously, it’s all I’ve been planning all year round. I’m like, since I love Christmas and it’s my favourite holiday it’s probably just right that I participate in Blogmas! But my deadlines apparently disagree with that so I sadly wasn’t able to properly join in on the festivity of Blogmas. Hopefully next year it happens for me, though!
Although, what I really wanted to catch you guys up with was how these new skin care finds have been working so well on me I just can’t wait to talk more about them!!! My skin is ultra sensitive and one mistake my face just breaks out, but presently, I’m happy that these products got me covered. And I can’t believe I’m saying this but, I’m pretty happy with my current skin situation and I don’t get to say that a lot! So, a whole lot of thanks to these goodies.
1. COSRX Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser
I mean it’s not some fancy lavender or rose or whatever scented facial cleanser that’s on the trending column nowadays, but your acne worries sure will be gone for good in no time, all props to this salicylic acid cleanser care of COSRX. This gem of a product helps clear up my skin and lessens the oil situation going on in there. It also does a great job of calming my acne thus preventing them to grow into an even more outrageous bump that screams ‘Hi, I’m a huge pimple nice to meet you’, if you know what I mean.
2. COSRX One Step Original Clear Pad
Here’s the situation: October was coming to screeching halt and November was approaching. I was mentally freaking out because my skin was breaking out at the time, skin complexion’s all dull and strangely bland, and my face was just a disaster and the holiday was coming! I had to do something about it and I was panicking because I just wasn’t feeling like myself. And then, thanks to my mom for recommending this toner, my skin was saved right in time for December.
These travel-friendly pre-soaked toner pads, another COSRX staple, is the perfect way to even out your skin and helps keep the complexion balanced. Also, I personally think it also does well with helping you clear up the acne situation along with the salicylic cleanser. It’s refreshing and just naturally restores your skin’s former glow.
3. KLAIRS Midnight Blue Calming Cream & Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask
I remember talking about the vitamin E mask at the beginning of the year in this post because KLAIRS is another brand that works well with my skin. And yes, I still am using that product 11 months later!
But another KLAIRS find I recently discovered is the Midnight Blue Calming Cream and it ultimately saves my skin from literally ANY situation. When I suddenly get an acne overnight, I just lightly apply minimal product on the bumpy area and it clears up in 24-48 hours. Sometimes when there’s redness on my skin in the morning, I just apply it on the area and it’s all back to normal in less than 24 hours.
No offense but this calming cream is officially better than all the other pimple cream products I’ve ever tried in the past. Keeping this one for the long haul. Maybe you’ll still see this product in my 2020 skin care essentials, who knows?
Well, that’s it for the updated skin care routine! If you ever consider trying any of the products, all I can say is: THEY’RE ALL WORTH IT. Let me know if you do!
