Current Skincare Routine – DAY

Biotherm Biosource Hydra-Mineral Cleanser Toning Mousse

My day starts with a splash of not-so-cold water followed by cleansing (yes we need to properly cleanse in the morning) I really like this product, I usually stay away of foaming cleansers as they are very aggressive, well not this one! Is Sulphate-free and It doesn’t dry out the skin, is actually very comfortable to use.

After cleansing I pass on to toner and this one is a bit different, it has a geI texture and you pat it on instead of applying with cotton pad I  already reviewed this one HERE. I really love it, it gives my skin that little extra moisture and it helps to balance the skin after cleansing.
You may find this step a little unnecessary because I already used the toner at this point but I find this eye lotion very shooting and refreshing, I have been using this for very little time so I don’t really have anything else to say about it.
Some people use eye cream at the end, I like to use it in the begining and this is  one of my favorite eye creams. It was very cheap, its humungus (30ml) and it’s super nourishing! Its anti-ageing but I’m (still) young and can’t atest that (for now :p) It has the texture of a balm, super rich but is really-fastly absorbed. I used to wear it at night but it has been my best friend during the day here in this cold London weather which by the way it’s killing me. This helps to keep my eye area really moisturized and bright.

Nature Republic Polynesia Lagoon Water Hydro Essence
This is another Korean favorite! It’s like a serum but it’s not really a serum, well is lighter then a moisturizer but heavier then a serum, its weird I know but I love it! It helps to boost the hydration on my skin leaving it satin-y and luminous (not oily at all). 

Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisturizer
I’ve reviewed it HERE and I stil have the same opinion, its a good moisturizer but not refining at all. 

Skinceuticals Physical UV Defense SPF30
The only days in which I dont wear SPF are the days I don’t leave the house. Really, I’ve been using SPF everyday for the last almost-10 years in the hopes that it will pay-off one day and I’ll look a lot younger that I really am. Anyway, I’ve tried a lot of SPF’s and this is (by far) my favorite. It has a light texture, sinks very well into the skin, doesn’t leave a white residue and last, but not least it doesn’t cause breakouts or clogged pores. Sounds heavenly doesn’t it? Well.. It is, except for the price, I know but FYI its worth every penny.

    Fiquei muito curiosa com o produto da Biotherm, claro! xD No entanto, confesso que também gostava de explorar mais a cosmética coreana.

    Gostei bastante dos produtos. Essa linha da Skin Food acho que tem bastante saída e gostava de experimentar o creme ara os olhos, que também tenho o hábito de não o deixar para o fim.
