1. Orbis The Cleansing One Cleansing Liquid
Use: Makeup removal
Application: Entire face
The texture of this cleansing liquid is between oil and water, which I am very impressed about. I have been using many good cleansing oil products before, yet sometimes they break me out. :(
I usually use two pumps with my dry hands and massage entire face. It works wonders as it really dissolves all my makeup including waterproof mascara and eyeliner with just one wash!

2. (Left) Orbis Oil-cut Clear Wash (Right) Clarisonic Mia 2 with Luxe Facial Brush Head
Use: Night (I use water only to wash my face during daytime)
Application: Entire face
Clarisonic cleansing brush has helped a lot with my acne problem but I do not use it every single day. I use it about 3-4 times a week, or the night when I had full makeup on.
I like to massage my face with very soft brush head so I chose the Luxe range which is for delicate skin type. The Orbis Clear Wash is for acne skin and I have been using it for over 7 years.
The series has herbal ingredients and one of them is gromwell root extract, a compound that enhances the skin’s own protective functions to defend against menstrual acne. And since it is oil-free, it is known to be unisex as well. It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. :)

3. Albion Exage Moist Crystal Milk Type II
Use: Night
Application: Wipe entire face with a cotton pad
This product is a little bit on the pricey side, but it worths the $$! It is said to help “preparing” and balancing your skin to better absorb the products you are going to use (toner, serum, cream…etc. ) after you clean your face. It also helps fighting visible signs of aging. Ever since using it, my skin feels plump and a lot smoother than before!

4. Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist
Use: Day/Night
Application: Mist and pad all over face (around 4-5 sprays)
I am not too picky with toner, so I like trying different products. All I can say is it smells SO GOOD <3 It does the job, restores and hydrates my skin, and the spray method saves my time!

5. Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Use: Night
Application: Dispense 2-3 drops and press onto face and neck
A facial oil that effectively restores skin’s moisture and appearance overnight. I use it all year long and my face never feels greasy at all. It absorbs very quickly. It feels very therapeutic too because of the essential oils ingredients.

6. Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream
Use: Day/Night
Application: Apply gently with ring finger above eye area
Anti-aging is very important for my age now (sadly), so I chose this eye cream among all Kiehl’s range. It doesn’t help much with my severe dark circles, but it does help with reducing wrinkles around eye area. I usually gently massage around my eyes (circular motion) when applying it.

7. Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30
Use: Day
Application: Apply entire face and neck
I only use this in the morning after washing my face with water and applying toner. It is a light-weight moisturizer that keeps your skin hydrated all day. I like the fact that it is unscented and the SPF 30 does protect me from the sun!

8. Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle & Pore Reducing Cream
Use: Night
Application: Apply entire face and neck
An anti-wrinkle cream with quite interesting texture. One of the main ingredients is Apricot Kernel Oil which contains a very high Vitamin E content. It leaves my skin very smooth and hydrated after application and I love it <3 Though I do not recommend using it during daytime as it may be a little too moisturizing.
