I have received Skin Balancing Regimen for my combination skin and here are my thoughts after using the products.
1. Cleanse – Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser
2. Tone – Skin Balancing Toner
3. Treat – Optimizing Skin Serum
4. Moisturize – Skin Balancing Lotion SPF 15
Step 1 – Cleanse with Skin Balancing Exfoliating Cleanser (125ml, S$42)
The foaming cleanser contains micro-beads that are not too harsh on the skin to cleanse and exfoliate at the same time. It has a mild spa-like scent and cleanses really gently and effectively while buffing away dead skin to reveal a smooth and radiant looking complexion. Even though some foaming cleansers tend to strip off skin oil, this doesn’t and leave my face slightly hydrated.
Step 2 – Tone with Skin Balancing Toner 200ml (S$42)
First of all, this toner is alcohol free and contains witch hazel to minimize pores. Heard that witch hazel helps with acne-prone skin too so yay! I’ve been using a toner with salicylic acid and alcohol denat (bad!) for my clogged pores so this product came at the right time for me. Also contains chamomile extract to calm and soothe the skin. Use it with a cotton pad and you will be surprised at the amount of dirt it removes from your skin.
Step 3 – Treat with Optimizing Skin Serum 30ml (S$99)
Serums contain concentrated active ingredients to help boost the efficacy of your products, hence you shouldn’t skip this step. The serum is really lightweight and gets absorbed pretty quickly upon application. My skin felt extremely refreshed after using it. The scent was weird but manageable. Also contains Vitamin C that provides antioxidant protection and helps brighten the appearance of the skin.
Step 4 – Moisturize with Skin Balancing Lotion SPF 15 50ml (S$85)
Lightweight and gel like moisturizers are most suitable for my skin. Contains SPF 15, it gives my skin the hydration it needs without feeling too oily or greasy and ensures that there is minimum protection from the sun. Of course, SPF 15 is definitely not enough. Hence, a separate sunscreen should follow through.
