I’m back with another w2beauty haul! My skin has *finally* cleared up after a disastrous few months with a jawline breakout, so I decided to treat myself to some goodies. I’m now stuck with some pretty awful scarring, but I’m hoping that eventually everything will return to normal. This haul features a lot of products I’ve already tried and loved, but there are some new finds as well. I’m trying to create a baseline skincare routine that I can stick to, and switch just one product out at a time, to keep my skin calm.
First, from the left, we have some Missha Blemish Clear Patches. I haven’t reviewed any blemish patches yet, but know that I am obsessed with them. I usually keep mine on at night, since I don’t like wearing them in the day when everyone can see them. If you have one of those big, nasty, ugly whiteheads, one of these blemish patches can help dramatically. I like to keep them on hand for that time of the month, when my skin tends to get a bit cray cray.
Up at the top is a new toner – the Innisfree Rose Clear Skin toner. I’ve only been using it for a couple of weeks, but I really like it. It smells great and it leaves my skin hydrated and smooth. Let me know if you’d like a full-on review!
Next to the toner are two of my long-time favorite Innisfree products – the Jejubija Anti-Trouble lotion and the spot essence R. The lotion is an amazing if you suffer from acne. It’s lightweight, non-greasy, and absorbs quickly. I’ve talked about the spot essence previously, and whenever you have a nasty little blemish, just sleep with this on and BAM. Your blemish is dramatically decreased by the next morning. Whenever people ask me about an affordable acne care line that works, I always point them in the direction of the Jejubija line. It’s great!
The Benton Snail Bee High Content Essence is another favorite of mine that I definitely had to repurchase. I literally used my last one until I had to use a q-tip to scrape the contents from the sides and bottom…yes it’s that serious. Whenever my breakout would flare up really bad, this was the first product I’d reach for. It really calms your skin and decreases the amount of angry, angry blemishes. I haven’t done a full review, but I am definitely planning one because everyone needs to buy this. It’s really that great.
Ohhhhh the Missha First Treatment Essence. Skincare is a passion, and I’ve tried so many different things, but once I got this back into my life, I just knew that it’s forever going to be a staple. The full review is here, and nothing has changed. Seriously, this stuff is a miracle worker. I used it the first night I got it, and the very next day it looked like I had a whole new face. I don’t understand it. It’s obviously made with fairy dust, and I’ll continue to repurchase forever and ever. I also bought the First Treatment Essence sheet mask because I obviously need to let the magical fermented amazing-ness sit on my face for 30 minutes. I haven’t tried it yet because I’m a sheet mask hoarder, but expect a full report soon.
I’ve heard so many good things about the Banila Co. Clean It Zero so I obviously had to get one. Kerry’s blog is the skincare Bible, so when she said she liked it, I just had to get it. Initial thoughts? I really love it! I haven’t had much luck with Banila Co., so my expectations weren’t that high, but it’s really great. I’ve been using my Sulwhasoo Gentle Oil Cleanser for like 6 months now (and it’s STILL not finished, omg), but I think I like the balm texture better. It leaves my skin smooth and clean, without any film or greasiness. I’ll definitely be doing a full review on this one.
This is now my 4th (!!!!) tube of Benton High Content Steam Cream. If that isn’t a testament to how much I love this stuff, I don’t know what is. It’s definitely my cream of choice (full review here), and Johnny is hooked too. I just have to keep a constant supply in stock because if I run out, it’s a skincare disaster for me.
I’ve never been a big shopper at The Face Shop, but one of my all-time favorite products are the Herb Day Cleansing Tissues. I’ve purchased a few packages over the years, and even though I try a lot of face wipes, I always come back to these. They are so unbelievably soft and smooth, and won’t irritate your skin like most face wipes do. They can remove all makeup, including waterproof mascara and eyeliner. I love them because they’re just so convenient to toss in your gym bag, or in your carry-on for travel days.
