Asia Haul – Skin Care and Make Up

Hi everyone! Just to explain why I have been missing in action for so long. Since i have been living in Switzerland for the past two years, I have barely any time for blogging, not to mention the ability to attend Kpop concerts and events any longer. Usually, Kpop groups only visit the bigger cities such as Paris and London. No one goes to Switzerland for any concert, so i have not been able to get any pictures to keep my Asian Sanity. The only time i get to go back is when i have a longer holiday (1 month) or when i did my internship last year in Singapore.

During this year’s Summer Break, I managed to go back to Singapore and Indonesia. My family and I had some time to visit China before coming back to Switzerland. Other then sight seeing, we did a little shopping as well. These were purchased when i was in Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and China over the span of 1 month.  Lets get them started!

Etude House Haul February 2013 – 30% Off

Since I’m done with mock exams, it means I have more time to blog now, until my real exam starting April until May. Then I graduate from high school. Here’s my Etude House haul I did during the week where they were having 30% off (in Singapore), the whole month of February where there were promotions (In Jakarta, Indonesia) and while I was in Taiwan. So this is a collective haul from end of December till mid February. I will list which I got from which country.

Skin care routine – as of August 2012

This is my current skin care routine which I have tried for 2 months and really worked. It’s mainly Asian cosmetics, and it’s all on my personal point of view. I have to clarify my skin condition – I have oily combination and acne prone skin, and it’s extremely sensitive as well.

Face wash
Daily – morning
Clinic liquid facial soap mild – oily combination

Every 2 weeks, I will switch between these two for my nightly skin care

Wonder Pore Whipping Foaming (Etude House)

This really helped me control my sebum level. i can use sunblock and such but not feel oily through out the day. but I can’t use this too often or my face’s natural sebum will be gone in 2 months. It helps to make the pores smaller after trying it out for a week.

AC Clinic Daily Acne Foam Cleanser (Etude house)

It really helped with my pimple, and relatively helped control my sebum level on the 2 week nights when I’m not using the wonder pore foam.

I have recently changed back to the Arsainte line after trying the Suhwang snow, a really nice smelling toner and moisturiser, but for me the moisturiser does not work. It dries out my skin. This is what I’m using currently.

Arsainte Eco – therapy extreme – moisture Tonic with essential (Face shop)

This is something I have repurchased, and I love it even more! It’s a toner with a little bit of essence in it so there is no need to have additional step of essence in any skin care

Arsainte Eco -Therapy Crystal Water Super Gel (Face shop)

It’s a new product in the line Arsainte Eco. Although its suppose to be a product for dry skin, it works for my oily skin. It does not become oily after applying. I’m not sure if its because its a gel, it gives my face a non oily feel even though i put sunblock after it for at least 10 hours, the after feel when the skin absorbs it is like a natural skin. It doesn’t feel dry nor oily.

Sun block
Natural Sun AG SPF 45 PA++

My favourite sun block of all times! It doesn’t feel oily on the skin nor does it leave a heavy feel on your skin when applied. It can work as a base if you want to use make up.
