Skincare Routine | Exfoliating Toner, First Serums and Skincare Booster

Sunday, 20 May 2018




If you're a beginner in using Korean skincare products, you would probably noticed there are certain products that you're supposed to use in between your cleansing products and your regular (hydrating, brightening, or moisturising) toners and these are called either exfoliating toner, skincare boosters (usually filled with sorts of vitamins) and the most familiar I'd think, first essences (lightweight) or serums (slightly heavy) that exist within the same skincare lines or you can get it on its own. 



First is Son&Park Beauty Water. I’m on my 3rd bottle (already repurchased my 4th bottle recently) of this exfoliating toner and I just can’t get onto another similar product yet. I've mentioned this previously that I always use this before any sheet mask session as it smooths out dead skin cells and make way for the essence or serums even ampoules to be well absorbed into skin better as I've compared to few times I didn't use it. I freaking love this toner and I've crowned this with   HG status since 2016.



Secondly, a skincare booster that's filled with Vitamin C; Holika Holika 3 Seconds Starter Vita Complex. At this point, I’ve just opened this recently for its brightening purposes and I'm loving its light texture. Will use more before giving my thoughts on it.



Thirdly, these two first serums that I lovingly use for my morning and night routines separately. If you saw my Instagram Stories around last month, you’d noticed that I actually finished my first bottle of THE FACE SHOP The Therapy First Serum and opened the Holiday Limited Edition of it but then I'm not fond of the plastic feel for the packaging hence I refilled that bottle fully at 130ml and filled the 50ml balance into my mum’s bottle. Indeed, we both are loving this first serum so much!



As for that Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Serum, there’s like little amount of the serum left in the bottle (took this pic last month) and I’m planning to get a backup for this hydrating first serum on my next trip to KL end of this month. That's how you know how I really love using certain products in my skincare stash. I know I've said previously I should stopped buying backups but I assured you that it only applies to facial cleansers at this point. 



I guess that's all from me! Let me know if you're using any of these in your current skincare routine by leaving comments down below. I'll see you guys on my next post! Annyeong~
