Today let’s talk about skincare.
Welcome to my minimal skincare routine. I have honestly downsized the number of products I’m using and I don’t wear makeup 95% of the time.
A little background.
I have been having issues with textured skin, especially on my chin and forehead. I splurged money on facials at Kaya Skin Clinic until I can’t afford them any longer. Lol. I saw results, although, to maintain them, you have to keep coming and have your sessions as religiously as recommended. So I experimented with moisturizers and cleansers. These are the only things that I notice my skin will dramatically react to if it doesn’t like the product or any ingredients in it. I ventured on high-end and drug store products and I can tell which one was having a favourable effect and which one was not. Sometimes I mixed the two by using them alternately just so I don’t run out of the more expensive product quickly. But it was not working and I just ended up having multiple products.
So I decided to keep one of what was doing exactly what it says and cut the rest out. It saves me time and gives me ease. Then eventually help me save money and keep everything at a minimum. It has made a whole world of difference.
I apply the Tata Harper Purifying Cleanser directly onto my face without water, day and night. It will turn into oil and you wash it off with warm water. It leaves your skin feeling softer, brighter, and hydrated. And this is the only face wash that cleared out my pimple marks and textured skin. I am not a pro when giving product reviews, just sharing my personal experience. You can check out the products if you wish to know more.
For the Shiseido Scrub Mask, I use it three times a week or anytime I feel like I need it.
I Followed then with Hyaluronic Acid at night and Vitamin C in the morning.
- I could not find the link for the Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C but I purchased them at Watsons.
For moisturizer, I use the Tata Harper Water-Lock Moisturizer. I like this more for two reasons. First, it is super hygienic. It has a very cool pump, you press the green top surface and the product will automatically dispense. There is no need to dig your fingers down into the tub. Second, you can buy a refill. You keep your tub and use it for as long as you two shall live. Lol. The hydration level is superb.
Eye cream is another important part of my routine because I get dry eyes and wrinkles are here so I need the Shiseido Wrinkle Smoothing Eye Cream‘s magic.
The last step is sunscreen. I wear sunscreen every single day and I never go out without having it. I don’t usually wear any during the night if I will just sleep, but I do if I am working.

I hope this post gives some inspiration for one almighty pampered and clear skin that we all deserve! Haha.
