I must halt my spending money on shoes, clothes (my new year’s resolutions) and lavish things that I’d only wear or use once or twice a year, but focusing on looking after my skin on a regular basis to compensate many years of neglect in skincare since early adulthood, curse you freckles and English water. I’m approaching 31 in April and can’t imagine turning 40 in 9 years time, yet I’m still a complete novice when it comes to finding appropriate formulated beauty products for Asian sensitive combination skin, I’m still searching and discovering.
I was introduced to Alpha H Liquid Gold (helps tightening enlarged pores) over 2 years ago by a makeup artiste friend Kenneth Soh, who uses Alpha H products consistently for 3 years and swears by it. At the moment I’m using these skincare set which I’m using religiously on a daily basis – Alpha H’s Balancing Cleanser, Liquid Gold (3 times a week), Eye Serum and non-heavy Age Delay Night Cream. My skin feels hydrated and smoother even when I turn a heater on full blast, the surface of the skin doesn’t feel dry…goodbye skin crust.
After a fun beauty advertorial project with Editer.com and Creme de la Mer’s Soft Cream back in September, I took a liking to experimenting more of their other products that I feel deems right for my skin – Blanc de la Mer Brightening Essence Intense (ultra-gold-dust-amazing product for Asian skin, but it will cost you), Moisturizing Lotion and SPF18 Fluid Tint in Light which is a great alternative to BB cream. Both Alpha H and Creme de la Mer (full review coming soon) products sits well together on my delicate skin, but it will cost me to keep this routine on-going until my kitty coin bank is refilled.
