Hi there! Today I am going to share with you my personal skincare routine that I used daily for morning and night. This routine is based on the famous 10 step skin care routine that originated from Korea.
This famous 10 step skin care routine is the foundation that leads to clear porcelain skin that we commonly see in Korean idols.
My skin had always been dull and lacked of vitality. It is only after using these products as detailed in my routine where I start to see some signs of life on my skin.
So without further ado, lets begin with the first step
Oil cleanser is my first step of my skin care routine. For this, I use the Neutrogena Oil Cleanser. This product is formulated with mulberry extract for its brightening effect and it is suitable for dull skin like mine.
What I like about this product is that it is actually a make-up remover. It is an oil cleanser that dispenses foam. This special formula contains Micellar Oil Gel that effectively removes stubborn makeup.
This cleanser also comes in 3 types:
· Brightening Oil Foam – For Dull Skin
· Original Oil to Foam – For Normal to Oily Skin
· Hydrating Oil to Foam – For Dry Skin
So if you are contemplating to try this product out however you do not have dull skin, check out its alternatives.
Where to Get: This product can be found in any department store such as Watson or Guardian.
I will also include a link here where you can purchase it online.
The next step after the oil cleansing is the use of a facial foam. This dual cleansing step will clear away all the dirt and excess sebum on your skin.
The facial foam that I am using is the Scentio White Collagen Mild Facial Foam by Beauty Buffet.
The product contains pine extract, the key ingredient for whitening, brightening and firming of skin.
What I like about this product is that my skin feels smooth after each wash.
This product was bought from one of the shops in Bangkok, that sells facial products, I could not recall exactly which shop was it but it is quite common to find this product in the city.
The third step of my skin care routine is the use of this exfoliate – Scentio Milk Plus Whitening Facial Scrub by Beauty Buffet. Exfoliating of the skin is important to turnover dead skin cells and it is recommended to use it for at least 2-3 times a week.
Due to its milk content, it helps to whiten your skin and giving it a natural radiance to it.
In addition, it has a very delicious smell. Click on the link if you want to try it too.
For toner, I am using the Supple Preparation Facial Toner by Klair. It is formulated to be suitable for people with sensitive skin and it intensely hydrates your skin from within.
In addition, it also helps to enhance any facial products you apply on your skin after using this toner.

For essence, I am using the Collagenases Advanced Face and Neck Contour Essence.
This luxurious essence is specially formulated to help provide lifting, smoothing and tightening benefits. It helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles thus leaving your skin looking younger , smoother and revitalized.
I probably will change to another Essence, because I don’t always go to Bangkok. Ha – ha! And it’s hard for me to get it. If you happen to go there, just get one. By the way, just for your information , it is a bit pricey. However, for its benefits that it provide, I still think it’s worth a try. J
The serum is an important step in this routine as it helps to target troubled areas of my skin. For this, I am using the Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum.It is a 100% pure vitamin C serum which aims to give you a healthy looking skin. Due to its high concentration of Vitamin C, the serum also whitens your skin PLUS it has added benefits of exfoliating your skin.
The serum has a 3rd benefit too. It is can help to tighten your pores while helping you to smoothed any rough area of your skin such as spots or acne breakouts.
I have used one of the CucumberEye Gel. This one have infused with soothing cucumber extract and vitamins, and is easily absorbed to moisturizes the skin around your eye area. Furthermore, it also helps to reduce the puffiness of the eye.
I like this, because it has a cooling after effect.
And I also have the link for you, if you would interested to get one too.
Previously I have been using Hada Labo Hydrating UVPerfect Gel. This is one of the best products I have used so far.
It also contains sun block content – SPF 50 PA++. Furthermore, it is an all rounder because it can be used like an essence, Mask, Moisturizer, and UV Sunblock.
I think this is the best moisturizer so far for its value of around $30.
In addition, I had bought another moisturizer, which is the Vitamin 75 Maximizing Cream. I’m still waiting for the item to arrive.
In conclusion, these are the facial products that I use every single day and night which helps me to achieve a healthier looking skin.
- You don’t have to get expensive or branded products for your skin, because a branded product may not necessarily means that it will be the best product for you.
Spend on products that you need, e.g. If you need brightening, get those products with brightening skin will do. Any brand that you like. As long as it’s good for your skin.
Don’t be lazy and be consistent because once you are lazy, your skin won’t improve.
Therefore, you are wasting all your effort and money.
