Clogged pores = acne. . Lots and lots of concealer to hide acne + hormones = clogged pores. Oh the vicious cycle😔 . Recommended by @sophieskincare I purchased Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid with Salicylic Acid. . This exfoliant claims to gently remove built-up layers of dead skin, unclog pores and promote skin renewal and clarity. Even right after the first use, it’s supposed to give you smoother skin, smaller pores, a more refined skin texture and less visible lines and wrinkles. The Green Tea in it helps to calm the skin. . Verdict? I love it. My chin is still unrelenting but after just one week of usage, my skin condition (overall) has improved tremendously. Spots heal faster and are less painful, pores have shrunk and skin is a lot less oily. . It does, however, dry the heck out of my skin which I try to counter with an array of hydrating serums and oils. Could be the fact that I’ve been using this exfoliant daily. . This constant battle with acne is exhausting and depressing, but I am still hopeful. With the right skincare products, supplements and diet, I hope to see better skin days🤞🏼 . . . . . Pixi Hydrating Milky Serum . Pixi Jasmine Oil Blend . Herbivore Phoenix Regenerating Facial Oil . Herbivore Lapis Balancing Facial Oil . Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil . Sephora Lotus Eye Mask . My Beauty Diary Hyaluronic Acid Face Mask
Stress affects everything. Mental health, physical health, emotion and skin. So far, my skin has been taking some hard hits and it saddens me deeply that I now have to deal with scarring, on top of the daily battles with new spots😣 . I haven’t been very inspired lately but thanks for sticking with me 😌 I hope to bring you better content soon. I’ve recently ordered some new products that I hope can help my acne situation but in the meantime, here’s a mess of lovely things💕 . 🙅🏻‍♀️ Son & Park Beauty Water, a purchase inspired by @sugarcoatedshushu – A multi-tasking toner and cleansing water with willow bark and papaya extract that I use after double-cleansing to wipe away dead skin cells, as well as every other time that I wanted to clean off spot treatments. The best thing about this (for me) is that Witch Hazel is the 3rd ingredient in the list, after Water and Rose Water👍🏼 Witch Hazel helps control sebum, an excess of which will clog pores and result in more pimples. . 🙅🏻‍♀️ Mario Badescu Dying Mask . 🙅🏻‍♀️ Herbivore Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask . 🙅🏻‍♀️ Herbivore Lapis Balancing Facial Oil . 🙅🏻‍♀️ Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream . 🙅🏻‍♀️ Etude House AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot . 🙅🏻‍♀️ Cover FX Correct Click Color Corrector - Perfectly masks the redness of my pimples. I love this so much but why, WHY is the product so small??? I mean come on...😭 It is as if this is a sample, instead of a full-size product. . 🙅🏻‍♀️ IT Cosmetics CC Cream . 🙅🏻‍♀️ IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Full-Coverage Treatment Concealer - I absolutely appreciate that my concealer is in the same shade as my CC Cream base. It makes a world of difference, for someone who has to cover a large surface area with concealer and not needing to worry if my concealer is obvious (being in a different shade). It also acts as a drying lotion with ingredients like zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, tea tree and sulfur. A winning product but full coverage? Not quite, I’m afraid. . 🙅🏻‍♀️ Cosrx Acne Pimple Master Patch - Great for broken skin. Keeps the pimple clean, then heals them, ever so slowly though. . . Long post but if you made it this far, thank you for reading!😘💕

Since I got the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion, my face is hardly not dotted with the pink powder. I love the idea of my pimples shriveling up and dyinggggg😈 So when I heard about the AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot from Etude House, I had to give it a go. I’ve gotten a comment before saying it’s better, but I was wondering, if they’re basically the same thing, how is one better than the other?🤔 I must try them! . They both have key ingredients such as Salicylic Acid, Sulfur, Calamine and Zinc Oxide. . The AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot has a much longer list of ingredients, but the ones that make sense and stand out to me are Tea Tree Oil and Madecassoside (which I love). Also, it substitutes water with Cypress Water, which is known to be used for treating congested skin by means of controlling sebum. . The Drying Lotion 29ml (RM91.00 via Sephora) VS the AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot 15ml (RM47.50 via Hermo). This is a tough one. Both does the job well but if I really have to choose one, I’ll repurchase the Pink Powder Spot because I do find it to be gentler on my skin✌🏼 . . . . . #skincare #skincareproducts #skincareroutine #skincareregime #skincareaddict #skincareenthusiast #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #skincarereview #instaskincare #beauty #intothegloss #makeup #makeupmalaysia #beautyproducts #beautycommunity #kualalumpur #skincaremalaysia #sephoramalaysia #hermomy #etudehouse #mariobadescu #acne #acnetreatment

Another week has passed, and another wave of hormonal acne has come and gone. So sorry for being MIA, I didn’t think you’d want to see photo after photo of my acne-fighting routine... Boring I know😜 . That said, despite some scars to remind me of what was there just over a week ago, I’m loving my skin very much. It could be the fact that I have been drinking A LOT of water lately, or these products that I have on rotation: . Pixi Peel & Polish Resurfacing Concentrate, to polish off dead skin cells and lift the dullness... . Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask to brighten and improve my skin’s clarity... . A'pieu Hamamelis Cream as the first layer of my routine to keep my sebum levels in check... . Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream, doing WONDERS with its star ingredient Guaiazulene that is so calming and gives my skin so much relief. Dealing with the redness is one thing. It also seems to speed up the healing process for my existing spots. I love this blue cream. Why is it in such a small jar! LOL . Herbivore Phoenix Regenerating Facial Oil, because the Blue Calming Cream is technically not a moisturizer☺️ This oil is so hydrating ANDDD it evens out the textures that my acne leaves behind. . A'pieu Honey & Milk Lip Sleeping Pack, saving my lips from my terrible skin-peeling habit. . . . . . #skincare #skincareproducts #skincareroutine #skincareregime #skincareaddict #skincareenthusiast #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #skincarereview #instaskincare #beauty #makeup #makeupmalaysia #beautyproducts #beautycommunity #kualalumpur #skincaremalaysia #sephoramalaysia #hermomy #herbivorebotanicals #freshbeauty #klairs #klairsmalaysia #apieu #apieumalaysia #pixibeauty #pixibypetra

When you’re trying to have a conversation with your husband but you can’t help but notice how his eyes keep darting to the GIANT PIMPLE that you have on your forehead... and then he reaches out to poke the OTHER ONE on your chin. A sock in the arm is in order😒 . Been majorly stressed out at work. Before I know it, BOOM!💥 My rollercoaster emotions led me down the road to Painful Cystic Acne Town. So here’s a little self-loving, acne-combatting routine that is giving me a lot of comfort at the moment. This, and some online retail therapy🙈 Just some😬 . . . . . #skincare #skincareproducts #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincareenthusiast #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #skincarereview #makeup #makeupmalaysia #beautyproducts #beautycommunity #kualalumpur #intothegloss #skincaremalaysia #sephoramalaysia #thayers #thayerswitchhazel #pixibeauty #pixibypetra #apieu #apieumalaysia #herbivorebotanicals #mariobadescu #klairs #klairsmalaysia #cosrx #cosrxmalaysia #hermomy
It’s couch potato Sunday! It rained in the wee hours of the morning so the weather is cloudy and cool, and the pillows on my couch beckons me😄 Still, no reason to leave my skin unattended while I catch highlights on the FIFA World Cup🤷🏻‍♀️ (Messi with his beard, c’mon😍!!) . 💐Pixi Rose Cream Cleanser with Rose & Chamomile Flower . 💐Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner with Aloe Vera . 💐Pixi Peel & Polish Resurfacing Concentrate with 6% Lactic Acid & Papaya . 💐Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Rescue Mask, Seaweed Radiance Facial . 💐Fresh Vitamin Nectar Vibrancy-Boosting Face Mask . 💐Kora Organics Balancing Rose Mist . 💐Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil . . . . . #skincare #skincareproducts #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincareenthusiast #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #skincarereview #beauty #makeup #makeupmalaysia #beautyproducts #beautycommunity #kualalumpur #skincaremalaysia #sephoramalaysia #thayers #thayersmalaysia #thayerswitchhazel #freshbeauty #kora #koraorganics #pixibeauty #pixibypetra
As much as I hate to admit it, or would like to stall it, anti-aging skincare is something I need to look into (already😩). But before I start on the heavyweights, I’d like to try a couple of regulars that I’ve been seeing all over Instagram for some time. Welcome, Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Activating Drop & Midnight Blue Calming Cream. I bought these 2 separately for different skin needs but I read that they seem to work best together. Here goes nothing🤞🏼Updates later!😘 . . . . . #skincare #skincareproducts #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincareenthusiast #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #skincarereview #beauty #makeup #makeupmalaysia #beautyproducts #beautycommunity #kualalumpur #skincaremalaysia #antiagingskincare #hermomy #klairs #klairsmalaysia
I’ve been keeping to this routine for over a week now and my skin condition is restored to its regular health. I have some newbies here which I believe have heavy contribution towards keeping my skin clear. . ⭐️ Thayers Rose Petal Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner with Aloe Vera. Something incredibly soothing about this one and it’s fast becoming my favourite. I read that Witch Hazel is “a natural astringent that can help control acne by reducing inflammation, and decreasing oil and redness. It can lessen bacteria growth on the skin while speeding up the healing of scars, scabs, and infection”. I love the sound of this! . ⭐️ A’pieu Madecassoside Cream with Centella Asiatica to strengthen the skin barrier, retain moisture, soothe irritated skin and repair skin damage. It also has Niacinamide somewhere in its list of ingredients and it’s known to improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, dullness and signs of aging like fine lines. . ⭐️ A’pieu Hamamelis Cream for sebum control. After some reading, I realized that Hamamelis is actually the scientific name for Witch Hazel. It makes perfect sense now 🤣 I apply this day (after the Madecassoside cream) and night (after the Moon Fruit). . ⭐️ A’pieu Honey & Milk Lip Sleeping Pack. I’m a chronic lip peeler (bad habit + nervous tic) and sadly now, I have much less dry skin to peel 😆 . . Two more sleeps till it’s Friday!🥂Good night lovelies! . . #skincare #skincareproducts #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincareenthusiast #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #skincarereview #beauty #makeup #makeupmalaysia #beautyproducts #beautycommunity #kualalumpur #skincaremalaysia #sephoramalaysia #pixibeauty #pixibypetra #thayerswitchhazel #apieu #apieumalaysia #herbivorebotanicals #hermomy

I witness, horrified, as my chin self-destruct. My hormonal acne refuses to go away but I’m not giving up just yet. While I continue treatment after treatment, I want to take a moment to appreciate what this beauty does for me in this emotional time. It absorbs like a dream, never once made my skin appear oily, balances my skin, calms the redness and helps get rid of other smaller blemishes so that I can focus my energy on the big suckers. I don’t know of any other Blue Tansy face oil dupes that are available here. My guess is there is none, so right now, this Lapis oil has my heart💙 . . . . . #skincare #skincareproducts #skincareroutine #skincareaddict #skincareenthusiast #skincareobsessed #skincarejunkie #skincarecommunity #skincarereview #beauty #intothegloss #makeup #makeupmalaysia #beautyproducts #beautycommunity #kualalumpur #skincaremalaysia #sephoramalaysia #herbivorebotanicals #lapis #facialoil
