Antipodes avocado pear night cream
Antipodes avocado pear night cream
I have combination skin and recently switched to a Korean Beauty regime. I cannot speak highly enough of the change I’ve seen in my skin. It’s brighter, firmer, clearer… I can’t remember a single pimple since I’ve switched.
As for my night moisterizer I use LaNeige Water Sleeping Pack. It’s pretty cheap ($24 from Target and similar from Amazon) for a generous size tub. It absorbs quickly, has a really nice texture and leaves my skin feeling hydrated but not oily. I highly recommend it!
marleebee1: I actually got a lot of help from the Bees on here when I was doing my research (so many products and brands, ahhh!). I’ve included the post I started below and there are more if you do a search but most of them are older. I also did a ton of googling, looked at information from multiple sources (peach and lily, sephora, all sorts of beauty magazines), and read pages of reviews before committing to a product. I would suggest price checking items before you buy, amazon is usually /vastly/ cheaper than ordering through a specialty website.
I’ve added a few more products/steps to my routine that I didn’t update to my orginal post. If you’d like me to send you my full list I can, I just don’t want to hijack this thread!
mangosandcats: I quit using Rodan & Fields about a week ago and started “washing” my face with coconut oil. I had an appointment with a reputable esthetician this week and on her list of “acne causing ingredients” to check in my makeup, lotions, facewash, etc was coconut oil. I was like “no! Ive read so much positive feedback online i thought this was my all natural solution” and she basically said I came in just at the right time for her to do extractions of the damage I’d caused that week.
It clearly works for some people, but not acne prone people like myself 🙁
jerseygirl28: Thanks! It makes sense, but even a few drops tend to destroy me. I guess it’s just not for me? I also tried a coconut oil shower soap bar. The first use was amazing and left my skin ridiculously soft. The second left it dried out and flaking. I’m bummed because coconut oil seems to be a miracle for most people, but I guess it’s just not for me :\
korres black pine night cream! I LOVE IT! Plus it smells amazing 🙂 I get mine at sephora so I’m sure a sales associate can give you a sample of it to try and make sure it’s right for you.
marleebee1: I’ve also recently switched to using a korean skin care routine with a mix of my favourite products that I’ve grown up using. I didn’t want my skin to freak out if there was too much change, lol.
I purchase my products online at sokoglam.com or peachandlily.com
Feel free to PM me if you’d like to know everything I use 🙂
I use the Midsummer Night’s Cream from Trader Joe’s. And I +1000 to everyone who says Cetahphil! I put that on my cracked feet when I sleep and it works
mangosandcats: I’ve basically been told not to put any oils on my face! I use aveeno positively radiant moisturizer that I really like and doesn’t have any pore clogging/acne causing ingredients. I’ve been told to stay away from using the following oils topically on my skin: coconut, argan, carrot, olive, moroccan and jojoba. Sunflower oils are okay. For facewash I started using the care line through my aesthetician (with the exception of aveeno moisturizer and rodan and fields acne serum which I still use through those brands) and I use a 100% glycerin soap bar in the shower.
Hope that helps!
I went to a Merle Norman skin bar, and the woman said that my face needed to be exfoliated on top of being heavily moisturized. She suggested that I use their Skin Refining Cleanser and then use their Intensive Moisturizer both in the morning and at night. She stated that it was cheaper to use simply their Intensive Mositurizer twice a day than to purchase an additional night creams. She said many of the consultants would try to get you to buy the eye creams, night creams, and all that jazz but to stick with the exfoliant and the one cream. My skin has never been softer!
Nip+Fab dragon’s blood serum is fantastic, it sort of creates a barrier to lock moisture in and isn’t greasy or heavy feeling at all. It really fixed my dry patches.
if you have a Kiehl’s nearby try their ulta facial cream. I have issues with buying the same product twice (commitment issues haha) but have bought about 6-7 tubs of this already. Cetaphil works great too and is much cheaper but leaves my face greasy. You can also go by any Kiehl’s and ask for some samples so you can see if it will work out for you before commiting.
