Beauty Routine | Emulsions and Lotions

Wednesday, 7 February 2018
As someone with Normal to Oily skin, I always prefer light moisturisers over heavier ones any day as balancing the amount to my day-to-day skin needs is such a hassle as less of it can result in dryness on my cheek and jawline area while excess of moisture oftenly result in breakouts or clogged pores. To me it's much easier to just use emulsions and lotions as my sealant. For today's post under my Beauty Routine series where I'll be giving out my thoughts on line of products at certain point of my skincare or makeup routine, so I'll be talking about the products that I use at this step in my skincare routines. 




I have several products under this category and each of them targeting each of my concerns. Depending on their respective consistency, I tend to use the lightweight ones in my morning routine and the thicker ones in the evening. I saw some bloggers mentioned that lotions are thicker than emulsions but I have to say that it really depends on that product.

THE FACE SHOP White Seed Brightening Lotion is a brightening light moisturiser that I prefer to use in the morning while THE FACE SHOP The Therapy Hydrating Formula Emulsion; a deluxe sample with anti-aging purpose at night. I really like the latter as the finishing is nice and smooth however it's not readily available in Malaysian stores yet.


Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Lotion is kind of heavy to me and most of the times I felt like the product just sits on my skin without being absorbed. I've tried massaging for few minutes but I still feel the slippery film so I guess I will only be using it on those days when I feel my skin is really dry which is often these days.

LANEIGE White Plus Renew Emulsion is the last bottle I have and it's actually no longer available at the store. I do like this product throughout the time I was finishing the other 2 bottles previously and this works well with my skin in terms of balancing the hydration level and complementing the toner and essence from the same skincare line.


Actually, I'm in the process of transitioning my skincare method. Previously, I use single line skincare products for my morning and evening routine separately and now, I want to focus more on each of the product's texture especially the lightweight ones and layer them on top of each other as they formed a hydrating, brightening and sebum-controlling film. Yes, I'm talking about adapting the "7-skin method" where I'm using several toners; layering one on top of another and sealing them with light moisturisers. This works well with my skin for the past few weeks and I'm going to continue with it for another few more to see whether it works with my skin or I'll just go back to regular routine.


What kind of moisturiser do you like for your skin?
