Makeup and Skincare Purchases: Nivea, Za-Cosmetics, PAC and Majolica Majorca plus Freebies plus Makeup Hand-me-down from my Mom

Hi! I have another post of my new purchases for today. However, this post will not be just about my recent purchases. As you read in the title of this post, I also have freebies and makeup hand-me-down from my mom. Let’s start! 😀

First part: My Makeup and Skincare Purchases

Beauty bloggers say that before putting on makeup, you should moisturize. This is a very important step that up to now, I am not yet putting into practice. Eeek! Sorry… Haha! 😛 So, I finally bought a moisturizer. For Nivea, I got the Smoothy Cream from their Nivea Baby skincare line.

I am lucky that I got the last stock when I tried to look for this at the baby section in SM Makati. The sales assistant told me that this is a really good product and that this is their bestseller for the Nivea brand. Well, I guess that’s true because based on what I read from other beauty blogs, they also have a hard time looking for this. It is always out of stock. By the way, you might be thinking why this is included in my post. It is a product for babies. Yes, it is! However, I read from several beauty blogs that this is an affordable yet an effective moisturizer. So, I got this one for now. 😀

For Za-Cosmetics, I got the True White Plus Liquid FoundationTotal Hydration Fresh Lucent Toner and Deep Cleansing Oil. I have been planning to get a liquid foundation for a month now. Finally, I got one. Yey! For the toner, it is another add-up into my skincare routine since cleansetone and moisturize are the basic steps for a clean and clear skin. So now, I think I’m on the right track. 😀 For the cleansing oil, yes, another makeup remover. Let’s see if this is a good one.

Skincare Purchase: Etude House Products

Aside from researching different makeup products, I am also now into knowing more of how to take care of my skin. Of course, how can I enjoy doing my makeup if my skin is not clean and healthy, right? I am a total convert now. Before, I just use an ordinary hard soap to clean my face. That’s it. But now, not anymore! I have to follow the correct and complete skincare routine so as to make sure that my skin feels fresh and hydrated all the time.

I don’t know if you will agree but when it comes to skincare, I guess the perfect routine to follow would be those done by Koreans. Why not? Koreans are known for their really flawless skin. They seem so perfect! However, it is no joke if you are going to follow their skincare routine.

There are 5 basic steps to follow (from k-popped.com):

  1. double cleanse (consists of makeup remover and cleanser)
  2. massage & mask
  3. tone
  4. essence/serum
  5. moisturize

The routine can even go further to 11 steps (from skinandtonics.com):

  1. oil cleanser
  2. foaming cleanser
  3. toner/booster
  4. eye cream (optional)
  5. sheet mask (optional, nighttime only)
  6. essence/serum
  7. emulsion
  8. spot treatment (optional)
  9. cream (optional)
  10. sleeping pack (optional, nighttime only)
  11. sunscreen (morning only)

Whew! Well, I might go for the 5 basic steps for now. The 11-step routine could be soooo expensive. 😦
