Say hello to!

Monday, 19 March 2018

Finally after more than 4 years of having this little blog of mine, I decided to get my own domain so say hello to Myra Beauty Diary!

To those of you who have been reading my blog from time to time (or is there any of you who read every post here? Hugs!) I'm pretty sure you guys know that all I've been doing here in this blog are writing beauty reviews, hauls and of course beauty topics. Therefore, I think it's befitting the new name that I chose for this blog as it's pretty much like I'm writing my diary, with snippets of my view on stuffs and some photos.

I have to admit that I've only been so active on social media especially Instagram and sometimes Twitter as I've been working on new contents hopefully in much more organised and coherent manner. It's about time for me to really show you guys on what's going on with my beauty routine and other things I'm eager to share with you guys (hint: I've got new place to live!) as all I've been doing for the past months were just sharing my obsession with sheet masks and some beauty blogger mails and packages. 

So let's engage by letting me know your thoughts on the latest trendy topic on Asian Beauty. If you did left comments before, please know that as I've changed my domain, all comments are no longer available (that's just how Google+ works) so feel free to drop some comments down below. 

Feel free to reach me via Instagram or Twitter @myrabeautydiary. That's all for now and I'll see you guys on my next post! Annyeong~

Blogger Mail | Althea Box No. 40 | 7-Step Korean Skincare

Wednesday, 28 February 2018
Last month, Althea Korea sent me one of their non-subscription Beauty Box; 7-Step Korean Skincare Box and the theme is K-Beauty Glow! Now, I bet you're already know what Korean skincare is all about; the ultimate goal of having bright, healthy (read poreless and baby soft), glowing skin and if you're still new and clueless to this most extensive (rhymes with expensive) skincare routine out there or just want to find some products that can help to cut down some steps in the routine and save some money, just read on and maybe put on some sheet mask on your cleansed and toned skin as this is going to be a long post.

A quick run through on Althea Beauty Boxes, these are beauty boxes that are launched 2 to 3 times a month on their website specially curated by Althea Mermaids with different and interesting themes or trends to basically bring out the K-beauty products to the eyes of ours; Asian beauty enthusiasts. As mentioned above, these are non-subscription beauty boxes so do follow their social media like Instagram for updates on these affordable starters and see if there's one box that befits your needs both for skincare and makeup. I actually bought a box of Vitamins-themed Althea Box before so do check it out here! Before we go to the products included in this box, let me just talk about Althea Korea box for a bit. Isn't it cute?

Althea Korea was still in the midst of Holiday season when they sent me this box hence the holiday-themed package. Quite frankly, I'd prefer to have the word "Holiday" rather than just Christmas as here in Malaysia, we're majority Muslims and as this limited edition box was released during November to January, it was indeed a holiday season with long school break, Christmas, and indeed it was the time when I personally take a long paid leave from work.


The box is in dark blue colour, a little bit of purple undertone with theme park during snowy season illustration on the sides of it. There's golden star patterns printed on the inner sides of it and I just love how cute they are as I opened the box, almost like I could hear chimes softly ring from afar. 


Products included:
  • Natural Pacific Perfect Deep Cleansing Oil 
  • The SAEM Healing Tea Garden Tea Tree Cleansing Water 
  • Dr.Frog Control-Tox Peeling Gel (120ml) 
  • Son&Park BEAUTY WATER (340ml) 
  • Leaguertox V-Shot Silhouette Lifting Ampoule_1ea 
  • Rire Camu Camu Moisture Cream 
  • Lebaton Pearl Whitening Essence Mask

If you've been reading my blog for quite some time, you'd notice that I'm all about brightening skincare products but beginning 2016 I have been incorporating some anti-aging skincare products into my routine to combat the dryness especially around my neck area. For that, I'd tried some deluxe anti-dryness moisturisers and serums but I haven't still found the one that suits my dehydrated normal to oily skin yet so I do actually hope that I might find something good among these curated items in this box. 

As Korean skincare routine generally consists of 2 to 3 products for cleansing stage, scrub or peeling product, toner (or toners for the trending 7-skin method), essence, serum, ampoule, eye cream, spot treatment, moisturiser, sleeping masks, and maybe more of that special kind of treatment skincare products like booster i.e. vitamin-filled product to help boost your line of skincare, activator i.e. product that can help in activating the cells at the deepest layers of skin for it to be able to absorb your line of skincare, finisher i.e. the last sealant on top of all the layers of your skincare, and other types of products with specific target and function. All of these 14 to 16 products basically complement each other and the key for applying them is according to their textures and viscosities i.e. from the most watery to the thickest or heaviest of creams. 

Now, let's go back to the 7 products included in this box and I going to go with the cleansers and the toner first. 

Assuming that I wear full makeup, the moment I stepped into my house; the first thing I do is to remove my makeup. I use a separate eye makeup remover to remove waterproof mascara, followed by cleansing water to pre-cleanse my skin as it's a habit of mine to just chill for a bit before I'm off to shower. I'd be using a cleansing oil to thoroughly cleanse my skin as it really melts off the makeup as I massage it well for a minute or two on my facial area. Then, I will do double cleanse with a cleansing foam or water-based cleanser. Every two to three days I will use scrubs to remove dead skin cells which you guys know how important it is to ensure high rate of absorption of your skincare products. Lastly, to wrap up the cleansing stage I would use a toner to remove any leftover of the cleansing product and helps restore the moisture loss during the cleansing process. 

In this Althea Box, a cleansing water is included and it's The SAEM Healing Tea Garden Tea Tree Cleansing Water. Any skincare products with tea tree as featured ingredient is basically meant for those with normal to oily skin as it helps removing excessive sebum deep in pores which can lead to acne if not being properly taken care of.


This refreshing cleansing water can be used to remove light makeup i.e. sunscreen or cc cream and impurities that have been accumulated throughout the day and it's actually doesn't require rinsing off with water afterwards. Still, I will at least rinse it off with water if it's the only cleanser I use for the night. 

It's watery, as I use it with cotton pads; wiping it all over my face and it gives me soothing and slightly cooling sensation as it removes my makeup of the day. I really like it and definitely would love to restock this product. 

Next step would be an oil-based cleanser to remove waterproof makeup like BB Cushion or thick foundation. With Natural Pacific Perfect Deep Cleansing OilI don't even need to use eye makeup remover for my waterproof mascara. Just take a few pumps and massage gently the eye area until the mascara melted off although I would massage my whole facial area first then proceed with eye area. I don't want to drag the black ink around. 

In the above photo, there are some of my base makeup swatches; from left, colour corrector cushion, BB Cushion, matte BB Cushion and a full coverage foundation with a pump of the cleansing oil. 


I would just massage the oil for few minutes or till everything is melted then I would just add a little bit of water to emulsify the oil and massage for a little bit more before washing it all off with water. I always follow up with my regular cleansing foam afterwards.

I do like this cleansing oil as it cuts the necessity for me to use a separate makeup remover for my eye makeup and the fact that the oil is light and easy to remove at the same time melts off my makeup really well is making me repurchasing it when I'm finished with it.

When it comes to taking care of dead skin cells, I always opt for scrubs however these days my cheeks are too dry for aggressive black sugar scrubs so I bought a honey version of the mask but still, I'd love to find other options if possible. The last time I tried something with a 'peeling' word in its name it was more like a mask that when you rub it enough on your skin, the substance will turn into  a rubber-like and roll your dead skin cells with it. I guess not with this DR. FROG Control-Tox Peeling Gel.


It's a clear gel and when I spread it around my facial area, it doesn't change into any other form and as I go with the instruction, to just massage all over for few minutes and wash it off afterwards. I did felt my skin much smoother and brighter; as you see in the right photo of my hand. 

Now the product that I anticipated mostly from this box is indeed this Son&Park Beauty Water. You guys have seen it being featured many times here in my blog and Instagram, the story of how I got my hands on the very first bottle all the way from Seoul back in the day (2015) as this brand was not readily available at local beauty store nor online. I fell in love with this toner or should I say Beauty Water as indeed it's more than just a water. It hydrates, gently exfoliates the skin, making it soft and supple and just ready for next product application.


If I were to compare between the one that I bought back in 2016 and the new one on the left that was included in this Althea Box, there's not much of a difference other than the cap is now engraved with the brand's logo. I feel like the scent, texture and effectiveness are pretty much the same as before. I love it, it's on my HG skincare list and I will repurchase it for the 6th time once I've finished with this one.

Next is these two products for moisturisation of the skin and included within the Althea Box; Leaguertox V-Shot Silhouette Lifting Ampoule and Rire Camu Camu Moisture Cream


The ampoule contains patented ingredients; L-Carnosine (anti-aging and elasticity improvement), Oligo-HA (wrinkle and elasticity improvement) and Argireline (wrinkle improvement and lifting effect). These patented ingredients; sweet almond seed extract, pomegranate extract and raspberry extract are sourced from nature.

The ampoule is indeed thick and it has this cooling sensation which is so nice once applied on my smile lines, neck lines even on my crow feet i.e. outer-V eye area. It soothes the tight feeling at these area on my face and neck and I love applying at least 4 to 5 dots on them. As it leaves sticky feeling to my skin, I'd prefer to apply my moisturiser right after. 

I love the packaging for this product as it's in the shade of pink that I like with a golden lid. The design is simple and pretty. To this point, I've only heard the term 'moisture cream' and never had the intention to try one as I always think that it's going to be thick and heavy for the skin. I'm completely blown away by this one.

This moisture cream supposedly provides abundant hydration and nutrition to the skin as it contains camu camu extract that is rich in Vitamin C and camellia oil that is rich in oleic acid hence it brightens (with 9 types of flower extracts and Niacinamide) and anti-wrinkles (with adenosine) at the same time. 


The texture is that creamy, sticky and elastic however once spread and massaged well onto my skin, I feel my skin is so smooth and it does give a subtle glow to my skin but most importantly the cream is not sticky as I had expected. 

This cream gives off strong scent however so if you're not keen on products that contain fragrance then maybe you want to stay away from this one though.

Last but not least, the seventh item included in this Althea Box is a sheet mask and if you ask me, you can never go wrong with a brightening sheet mask in your skincare routine.


Lebaton Essence Mask in Pearl Whitening supposedly brightens up dull skin with pearl extracts and other natural ingredients like Centella Asiatica extracts, ginkgo biloba extracts, aloe barbadensis extracts and camellia sinensis extracts to soothe the skin.

The sheet is quite thin considering it's a natural cotton sheet almost as thin as cupra sheet. The essence is clear and slightly watery with faint scent. I see brightening effect though temporary but I love the hydrating effect this gives. It's really affordable and I'd love to use this kind of mask in my morning routine. Definitely going to repurchase this along with the other 2 other variants from the mask line. 

Overall, I would say that these 7 items are sufficient for those of you who just started your journey in Korean skincare. Once you have patted down these products in your routine, you are ready to add more products like facial essence, serum or treatment ampoules. The ultimate goal when it comes to Korean skincare is having a bright, clear, healthy and glowing skin so taylor the products according to your skin needs.

For those of you who are already down with your own routine, having these products won't be redundant either as each of the product functions on its own and can possibly aid in boosting your skincare effects. Take the Beauty Water for an example, even if I don't do scrub for a week maybe two, the dead skin cells don't accumulate as much as compared to those days I was merely using a hydrating toner. If you haven't jump in on the cleansing oil wagon then you might just try that cleansing oil from Natural Pacific. 

I know at this point of time this particular Althea Box has already sold out and I might say that once the box is gone, it's gone. Though I've seen some boxes made return to the webstore, that's just luck. The prices offered for each of the box are affordable and take this box for example, it's much cheaper to just get this box rather than just getting the Beauty Water itself. Therefore, the next time you saw an Althea Box launched on the store, just grab them if it suits your need and who knows you might discover great new products for your skin. 

Would you be interested in this kind of non-subscription box? Or do you want me to do full review on any of the products above? Let me know in the comment section below. 

Until next post, annyeong~

Mask Review | HELLOSKIN Jumiso Water-Splash Mask

Wednesday, 21 February 2018
I've been so busy especially the past few weeks and I'm so sad as I couldn't finish my January sheet mask challenge even though I've gone through so much finding the required sheet masks to befit the theme of the day and curating the products that work with the sheet mask itself.

  • The cupra sheet is made of 100% mildest cotton yarn
  • The marine plants enhance moisturising effect on the skin
  • Contains shea butter to prevent the moisture from being evaporated effectively, the Phytex G Lotus Al; the patented ingredient extracted from lotus that soothes the skin, ceramide complex that similar to the skin lipids which help strengthening skin elasticity, and 3 Hyaluronate Complex; 3 kinds/sizes of Hyaluronic Acids that enhances the moistuirising effect both on the surface and deep layers of the skin
Ingredients list:

Water, Glycerin, Methylpropanediol, Beta-Glucan, Betaine, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Nelumbo Nucifera Root Extract, Laminaria Japonica Extract, Algae extract, Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract, Enteromorpha Compressa Extract, Sargassum Fulvellum Extract, Spirulina Platensis Extract, Niacinamide, Calcium Pantothenate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pyridoxine Hcl, Maldotexrine, Silica, Sodium Starch Octenylsuccinate, Ceramide NP, Ceramide NS, Triethylhexanoin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, Polyglyceryl-10 Decaoleate, Carbomer, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glyceryl Caprylate, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Caffeine, PEG-32, Panthenol, Allantoin, Dehydroacetic Acid, Arginine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Fragrance, Chlorphenesin, Disodium EDTA.

Usage time || 10 to 20 minutes

Impression || I super love the sheet for this mask! It’s super thin my skin feels like almost naked! It adheres to the curve of my facial area so well too! I walked around with the mask on and it didn’t even slide down a bit. Took it off at 20 minutes mark and the sheet was still wet with essence.
The essence is actually quite thick and ampoule-like. The scent is quite strong so if you don’t like fragrance do stay away from this one

My thoughts || I’ve been quite busy for the past few weeks and my skin is feeling really dry as all I’ve been doing was deep cleansing, toning and sleeping masks right after but still lacking in the moisture department. Hence this mask to the rescue! 

I gotta say that the sheet mask is definitely great for those with really dry skin as it took my normal to oily skin 45 minutes for the ampoule of the mask to really absorbed well into my dry cheek area and I’m still feeling sticky on my T-zone area. I was so relieved that I didn't break out in the morning. 

Overall, 4/5. All thanks to the sheet and how well hydrated (triple HA, people!) I’m feeling right now. I'm pretty sure I won't be opting for this on regular basis as it's too intense for my oily area. 

You can purchase this from Althea Korea at retail price of RM12 each but of course right now it's on discount price of RM7.

I'll see you guys next time! Annyeong~

Mask Review | LANEIGE Water Pocket Mask ​Time Freeze (Face Fit) Dynamic Collagen_EX™

Wednesday, 10 January 2018
It just hit me that even though I love LANEIGE as a brand so much that it currently taking over large percentage of my expenses on skincare, I rarely feature the product here in my blog, much lesser on my Instagram feed. I wonder why. Still, let's get onto this review of a sheet mask that I really love but unfortunately I can't get my hands on it and its wonderful sister variants easily, readily from my local LANEIGE counter here in Parkson Imago, KK Times Square.

Water Pocket Sheet Mask - Time Freeze (Face Fit) Dynamic Collagen_EX™

​I just started using some samples and products from the Time Freeze skincare line as I'm going for the big 3-0 this year hence I need more anti-aging/wrinkle/dryness skincare. I'm a huge fan of the brand Firming Sleeping Mask - better than their signature Water Sleeping Mask and I'm glad that they now included that mask in this line. Definitely going to get that sleeping mask soon!

Beauty Empties | Sheet Masks 2.0

Sunday, 31 December 2017

Finally, it's the last day of 2017 and I want to share with you guys the sheet masks that I've bought and used plus the ones that I've tried some that were gifted to me from other sheet mask addicts and PR companies. These are all the ones that I've accumulated for the past 3 months so let's get into it!


The above, my regulars from THE FACE SHOP and Innisfree. I also tried another sheet mask line from Innisfree; Skin Clinic Mask. Unlike their daily sheet mask, the variants for this line is so specific as the ones that I've tried are Peptide (anti-wrinkle), catechin (purifying Green Tea) and Madecassoside (soothing and calming). Sounds so science-y don't you think? I'm definitely down for upgrade for sure. The sheet for this mask line is so thin and I'm telling you guys that it made me addicted to thin sheet masks! Stay tuned for more to come after this!

I only got several more of those Mediheal X LINE Friends sheet masks and considering to buy the ones upgraded version in their original packaging. I did a review on that Mediheal White Hydrating Black Mask EX so do check that out! 

B.Liv Malaysia sent me their latest Nano Bio-Cellulose sheet masks to try and again, if you haven't read my review on these babies, please check them out as these are just so good or I need to try another five Bio-cellulose masks to try and compare them in order to legitimise my review. They are overall just filled your skin with moisture as all of them are lined with Hyaluronic Acids and coupled with ingredients that are targeting specific concerns for anti-aging, optimised hydration level and soothing inflamed skin. Love them all and I'm seriously considering getting them in boxes. 

I got that Blossom Jeju mask from Kurator Malaysia as a Gift With Purchase and I know it's being raved among those who love premium skincare but as I haven't done much research before using it, I ended up using the whole packet of facial oil though I was taken by surprise when I didn't break out from it. Probably going to get the new upgraded version now available at their store. 

I finally tried a Papa Recipe mask that have been raved among those with dry skin so when its number come up for me to to use it during October's masking challenge; Honey category , I'm so happy! There are 4 variants available at Sasa Malaysia and I started with the one that I anticipated the most; the whitening one. It does brightened up my skin a little bit but I love how well it moisturised my flaky jawline area! 

Now, I have to say that Skinfood mask is the first snail-based product and I'm going to say outright that I love this stuff! I was afraid to try any before this but guess I'm okay with it! Let me get some more of this! I love that dusty pink by the way! Perfect undertone!

I also picked up some sheet masks from brands that I haven't tried before like SNP, Pascucci, and Color Combos. For me, all of these are basic sheet masks that I use in the morning as they're refreshing and hydrating at the same time. 

The above are some of the sheet masks that Putihtalk sent me for review purposes but for now, do visit my Instagram as I did a micro review on them as required. Overall, I'm just frustrated with the fact that none of the sheet masks are readily available here in Malaysia as I really like all of them!

Recently, I've also discovered affordable sheet masks from the brand A'Pieu and it's great that these are easy to get your hands on as they're available online and Malaysia-based as well so no waiting time for shipping Seoul-KL and to KK for East Malaysian like me. I got all the variants for the two sheet masks above so do stay tuned for my review on them.

As I was also getting sheet masks from our local drugstores; Watsons and Guardian, I've encountered those cute in-house brand with fruit-themed packaging (again these are for October's mask challenge) and a new brand being introduced in Guardian, LipHop. It's from Korea and the products aren't just sheet masks as I do noticed lines of skincare as well.

Some variants of my favourite Taiwanese sheet masks; My Beauty Diary the new 2017 upgraded version of Natural Key series. There are two types of serums; Hydrating which is slightly milky and thick serum whereas the Refreshing serum is slightly watery and transparent gel. Love the refreshing ones (Damask Rose and Royal Pearl) for morning masking while the hydrating ones (Natto and Imperial Bird's Nest) for my night session. Overall, love them and will repurchase when I actually finished all 25 of them as I bought 2 or 3 for each of 10 variants. I know it's a lot but that's just me when it comes to stuffs I know I'm going to keep coming back to and it's great as I got them at discounted prices at Sasa Malaysia. They sell My Beauty Diary sheet masks in boxes (8 pieces per box)  at RM49.90 or loose packets RM6.90 per piece but I got them at RM25 for 5 pieces. 

Of course, one of my favourite variants from Naruko, it's cooling so and perfect for chilling out after work. Those from Dr. Morita are black masks that are great for morning session. One of the first Japanese sheet masks I've tried and it's quite average despite its price but I guess I'm going to finish all the four them before putting my final thought on them. I got them at at RM40 for 2 boxes of 4.

Phew! I guess that's all of it! I'll see you guys on the next post. Annyeong and Happy New year 2018!

Mask Review | Naruko Bunga Raya Snow White Ice-Cooling Mask

Friday, 22 December 2017
On my previous post, I talked about how I'm loving daily sheet masks from affordable Taiwanese brand; Naruko and I actually tried another variant from this brand that I really like to the point of ordering the whole box for myself after trying one. 

This time around, I'm going to share with you guys about this really cool sheet mask, literally.

Description || 

Provides hydration, evens out the skin tone and reveals calmed, soothed skin.

Usage time || 15 to 20 minutes 

Impression || I was really pretty skeptical at first when it comes to cooling sensation, thinking this probably just gonna feel fresh but boy, it’s cooling like putting my face on the wall of my fridge. Yes, it happened way before when I foolishly tried one of those local products that gave me burning sensation. I don’t have thermometer with me though. 

Hibiscus extracts are known for many of its great features such its ability to even out skin tone, anti-aging property as it's rich in antioxidants e.g. anthocyanosides but of course these applied when it's in high concentration i.e. skincare products. Still, a low concentration but repetitive usage as in using it for daily sheet mask session can probably give you some result.

This mask also contains Niacinamide for brightening and Panthenol for soothing which both are my favourite ingredients right now. Did you noticed the pinkish essence for this mask? Now that’s a first for me.

My thoughts || I love this sheet mask! I was right about using the mask in my morning session. It hydrates, soothes and actually brightens up my skin a little bit. After 20 minutes, though there’s a lot of essence not yet fully absorbed, I just tapped my facial area lightly for a minute till it dries down and I just love how it doesn’t leave me with tacky finish. I just followed up with light moisturiser and my favourite anti-pollution sunscreen.

Overall, 4/5. A minus point would be the preservative (phenoxyethanol) being high up on the ingredients list but that’s just it. I guess that’s why masks from Naruko usually have 3 years of shelf life. 

Purchased from Hermo Malaysia at RM36 per box of 10 sheets which is awesome compared to RM6.90 at Watsons Malaysia. Definitely will repurchase! 

That's all from me, I'll see you guys on my next post! Annyeong~

Blogger Mail | Hermo Christmas Holiday Like a Star

Sunday, 17 December 2017

Approaching towards the end of 2017 with sales both online and offline; I mean seriously? Have you walked down the shopping wings in Imago, KK Times Square the recent weeks? I know I did though only for a little bit of time as things at work rather multiplied itself around this time of the year. Which is why lunch hour at the office can't be more exciting with the online deals, vouchers and discounts especially at Hermo Malaysia

Now, talk about this Holiday season, whether I'm just hanging out at home for the weekend or a quick getaway with my family, COSRX products are always be among my beauty essentials. Be it my favourite exfoliating cleanser, Salicylic Acid Exfoliating Cleanser, my One-Step Pimple Clear Pad to remove dead skin cells and my new favourite, One Step Pimple Clear Kit which include a cleanser, the toner pad and a sheet mask in one packet; all of these are among the products I have in my weekender bag.

Of course, with my current obsession towards sheet masking and as I've been using at least once a day in my evening routine (sometimes morning), I just had to grab these great daily sheet masks from Naruko. I got the above 5 variants along with the limited edition that only being released here in my country, Malaysia; the Bunga Raya Snow White Ice Cooling Mask. 

I've been loving lots of regular or daily sheet masks as I call it as they're simple, easy to use and the texture is refreshing and hydrating at the same time; two things I need throughout the weekdays as I don't really have much time for a 10-step skincare routine in the morning. Just cleanse, tone, do the sheet mask for 10 to 15 minutes, light moisturiser and finish off with a light-textured chemical sunscreen. Then, getting ready for about 20 minutes and I'm off to work!

I've been into shopping online for Korean beauty products since 2014 and quite honestly I don't even know that I'm a Platinum member on Hermo Malaysia until I started to use their Mobile App and saw the member status on the Account page. I usually just put things on my cart and checkout while I'm shopping on my desktop. Though I can't enjoy the member privilege during the sale time but still, the deals are just so irresistible!

I guess that's all for now and I'll be seeing you guys on my next post!

Skincare Diary | Brightening AM Skincare Routine

Friday, 8 December 2017

For my morning skincare routine, I focus on brightening beauty products and these days I prefer to have simple i.e. 3 to 4 steps with lightweight consistency so my sunscreen can glide on smoothly.

As I received the brightening tone-up cream from THE FACE SHOP Malaysia back in October, I went and got myself the rest of the skincare line except the face cream as I still have my LANEIGE White Plus Renew Original Cream as my brightening day moisturiser. 

The White Seed Exfoliating Cleansing Foam contains small beads that can help in removing dead skin cells as I wash my face. I just need small amount of this as I don't need deep cleansing especially in the morning. 

As for the White Seed Brightening Toner, it works like a regular toner to me. The consistency is still watery with milky colour that disappear once I wipe my facial area with cotton pads. I usually go for a second sometimes third time with this toner for extra moisture by merely tapping my skin with it.

The White Seed Brightening Lotion that goes after my morning sheet mask routine is a nice lightweight moisturiser that helps the White Seed Spotlight Radiance Cream; the tone-up cream to glide on my skin evenly and smoothly. I only use the White Seed Pure Vitamin Concentrate at night for spot treatment. 

Then, I followed up with my current favourite chemical sunscreen also from the brand, Natural Sun Eco Daily Essence SPF40/PA+++ as it's really light in consistency and just perfect for under makeup. 

I have to say that I'm liking this routine as I don't feel congested throughout the day and for the time being, I solely depend on my sebum-controlling and pore-blurring primer, Benefit POREfessional Primer for my oily T-zone area. 

I guess that's a quick look on my morning skincare routine. I'll see you guys on the next entry under this Skincare Diary. 

Until next post, annyeong~
