Hey! Today I wanted to something else than a review so I’m going to list the essential beauty products catered to the lazy girl in all of us! Since it is winter this list is going to include stuff that would be ideal for the cold season.
A good nourishing face cream.
Skip the lotion and finish your skin routine off with a face cream. It will moisturize better than a lotion and it will help seal in the moisture from escaping throughout the wintery season and hot heaters. I’ve been using the SK-II R.N.A. Power Radical New Age cream and it’s great for Anti-aging and firming the skin. This one is a high end brand so it is a bit pricy 139,000KRW for 50g. A budget friendly alternative would be the Vichy Idealia cream which goes for 59,000KRW. I will have a review on this product soon!
A tinted moisturizer or a BB cream
If you don’t have the “time” to put on foundation all you need is pair of clean hands and a tube of your favourite BB cream or tinted moisturiser. It takes a minute to put on and you’ll have covered all the bases like sun protectant, primer, and foundation. It’s easy to put on and you can’t mess it up. Also you don’t have to fuss over blending, brushes, or sponges. Try the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 they have a bunch of shades to choose from that will hydrate and even out the skin tone. It goes for 62,00KRW but in the States it’s 44.000USD. :/ Not sure what to think about that.
A cream blush that can also be a lip color
Sallow complexion in winter is never good, so warming up the face with a cream blush will give you skin a dewy warmth rather than a powdery look that will accentuate the dryness of your skin. You can use the blush as a lip tint as well. If your lips feel too dry then just layer over it with chapstick. Stila has Convertible Colors that can be used fro both lip and cheek. It’s 38,000KRW or in the States 25.00USD. The Korean road shop Aritaum has Sugarball Cushion blushers that has a small puff inside to apply your cream blusher. It is 8,000KRW and I use the color no.3 Daisy Coral.
Lazy girls such as myself love to sleep so with basically with no effort you can still have diligently well managed skin just by ending your day with a general slathering of a sleeping pack cream. While you sleep it will moisturise and also deliver the nourishing ingredients to your skin and the great thing is that you don’t have to deal with peels, mask sheets, or post washing of the face. A lazy girl’s dream come true. I’ve been using the BRTC Vitalizer Whitening Sleeping Pack that costs 31,000KRW. The review I did is here.
