Pevonia Botanica Purilys Phyto Gel Cleanser to review last January. Pevonia Philippines assured me that it's good for all skin types. I started using it back in February and well, I'm still using it up until now! It leaves my face feeling perfect -- neither dry nor oily but very clean. The steep price tag is justified by the fact that it lasts forever. I've been using it to wash my face twice a day for the last 5-6 months and the bottle isn't even halfway done.
So yes, this is a permanent part of my facial care regimen. I wash with this Pevonia Botanica Purilys Phyto Gel Cleanser morning and night. Until I find something that works better, I'm sticking with this one.
At the Laneige boutique in Myeongdong, I asked the saleslady what she thought was the best line for my skin. She saw that I was a little bit oily on the T-zone but dry and slightly chapping everywhere else. She told me that at Laneige, basic skin care consists of two products: Refiner (toner) and Emulsion (moisturizer). Everything else is extra. She gave me the Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner Moisture and Laneige Balancing Emulsion Moisture (there's Light for oily skin and Sensitive for well, sensitive skin). Moisture is for drier skin. So I bought the boxed set and got free trial sizes of Laneige Water Bank Essence, Laneige Water Bank Moisture Cream, and Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX. The set cost around 50,000 won (around P2,000). You can get a bottle of refiner + emulsion in Laneige boutiques in the Philippines for a total of P2,900.
Thus after washing my face, I tone and moisturize with Laneige refiner and emulsion.
Laneige Snow BB Essence Balm SPF33 PA++ or Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream. My sunscreen varies, but I recently bought a tube of Laneige sunscreen which I will review eventually.
Eye cream is also something I use day and night. I'm overboard when it comes to eye cream. I apply all around the eye area -- underneath (for my dark circles), on the sides (for preventing crow's feet) and on the lids (so I won't end up with wrinkly lids). At the moment I'm using and loving Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye -- a detailed review will be up soon!
This about covers my basic daytime skin care routine... I also have stuff I do once a week and my night time regimen is slightly different from what I do in the day. I'll post about them in the coming days. :D
