I haven’t done one of these in a while; I’m back with another skincare snapshot.
Banila Co. Clean It Zero Cleansing Balm Original: This super famous K-beauty cleansing balm does a nice job of melting away makeup, but it is very highly scented. Its overwhelming sweet floral scent ruined a lovely effective product.
Retin-A 0.025% Gel (every other night): The benchmark/gold standard treatment for photoageing, non-inflammatory acne (e.g. clogged pores, blackheads), and discolouration. It may require a prescription, depending on where you live.
Curel Intensive Moisture Cream (on nights I’m using Retin-A): The moisturiser equivalent of a plain Uniqlo t-shirt. I prefer a very basic but well-formulated moisturiser when I’m using potent treatments. This one from Curel is one of my favourites.
Sidmool Pure Bifida 95 Ampoule (on nights I’m not using Retin-A)
JUNPAKU SENKA WHITE Beauty Serum (on nights I’m not using Retin-A)
