My Daily Ritual

My facialist recommended these 2 great products from Thalgo. I go to her for my monthly facials and no one knows my skin better than her and my skin is a combination of normal and oily especially at the T zone. At this point, my face is covered in red pimples because my OCP isn't working and my hormones are crazy, not to mention the stress writing my dissertation! 

 First, I use the Thalgodermyl purifying extracts to balance the oily zones on my face, after 2 applications, my skin seems more normal than oily and I could stop using it at night and just use it in the mornings. I'm 25 this year and it's always good to invest in a good Collagen based moisturizer. For collagen based moisturizer, you should always use a good marine based collagen. If you want more expensive brands, you can try La Mer. I spent about 500MYR on this 2 products after the 15% discount on my birthday month. If you're 26 and you don't use anything on your face, at least use the collagen moisturizer.

I recently bought this lovely set from Benefit for a steal at only 160MYR!!! I hesitated before stepping into Benefit at 1 Utama but the friendly guy coaxed me in, gave me a free makeover and offered me this lovely set for a steal. I've been trying to get the Benetint at duty free airports but to no avail. Buy, glad I didn't! This lovely "box-bag" comes with a 22ml Porefessional, 12.5ml Benetint, miniature They're Real mascara and miniature Laugh With Me Lee Lee perfume!

Before I discovered Dr. Brandt's Pores No More primer, I was actually considering Benefit's Porefessional. It's cheaper than Dr. Brandts and it minimizes the appearance of fores, fine lines and it keeps your make up in place. The original price is 115MYR. 

Right now, I can't live without my Benetint. I use it on my cheeks and on my lips. It's really strong so I layer it twice for a natural flush. When I first used it, I layered 3 times and it was horrible! But I normally use this on my lips before a lip color. This product lasts all day and no touch up needed!

I love the sweet scent of the perfume and I'm actually considering to get it and the mascara is just like any other mascara. I'm not an eye person because I hate how mascaras make your eye lids so stiff. I've yet to try it out, I'm just waiting for someone's wedding so I can get all dressed up. 

I loved Clinique's Chubby Stick but since they only had 4 colors before and I didn't bother to visit them to se if they've added more color because I found this "Chubby Stick" by Revlon. I was fooled by it as well until I saw the word Just Bitten Kissable. It's only 23MYR at major pharmacies so it's a steal! 

I loved that it's creamy texture glided on smoothly and it looks brilliant when layered on top Benetint. I got the 001 Honey/Dulce color. Very natural for my skin color! 

Here's a swatch of the color and its such a sweet and natural looking colour! Fits my skin tone exceptionally well! 

So, now you know my daily beauty ritual, what's yours?
