Vain

Breaking my absence from blogging again with this post! I've been finding it hard to balance my internship with my academics and THE thesis. Thus, I have been making more excuses to write even a single blog post. huhu

Anyhow, I was reminded few weeks ago of how I lack posts about beauty/ skin products, so I decided to do one. Very timely because my vanity was reaffirmed yesterday with the help of my friend haha. I have a very oily/acne-prone skin ever since, so it takes a lot of effort for me to take care of my skin. In other words, I regard my skincare regimen very seriously. I could leave the house without any makeup but I would die if I didn't follow the famous steps of cleansing, toning, moisturizing and applying sunblock! I thought I'd share with you some of the products that I'm using as of the moment. The products that I have included in here really works for me right now. :)



Clinique Derma White City Block Anti-pollution SPF 40 
I am head over heels in love with this product!!! My mom gave this to me recently since she was not hiyang to this, but I'm so happy it works well with me! I use this sunblock after moisturizer and I just apply baby powder or a little bit of concealer, then I'm good to go! 
This is my "the one" in terms of sunblock. A little pricey though, so tinitipid ko talaga haha.

Benefit Benetint
I'm not a big fan of blushes, but I use this whenever I'm not super lazy to apply makeup. This works well with me since I just use my hands to blend this to my face. I also love how natural-looking it is once applied.
Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Eye Concentrate
I've been using this product lately but I can't fully say that this is my favorite eye cream yet.
Kiehl's Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution
This is something that I also really save up for. Funnily, I tend to buy this product as a birthday gift to myself for two years now hihi.I have dark spots/ acne marks, and I really do notice significant improvement when I use this. I make sure to use this at least once a day or every night.
Happy Skin Shut Up & Kiss Me in Girl's Night Out
I've probably told most of my closest friends how much I love this lippie. This is really my favorite shade.I'm still saving up for a MAC Rebel, and this lippie is considered as a dupe for it.
Kiehl's Blue Herbal Moisturizer
My favorite moisturizer for two years now! This is perfect for people who have oily skin like me. I love how it also mattifies the face. Annnnddd by this point, it's already obvious that  I really love Kiehl's.
Mac Studio Fix
It is impossible for me to forget this miracle foundation. I've used this during my post-chicken pox phase, and it was the ONLY foundation that worked well with my face during that time. Until this day, I still consider it as the best. This is one of the best beauty finds I have ever bought in my life hahaha.
Happy Skin Second Skin Creme
I always prefer natural makeup look ( except for the lips), so I make sure to skip those that I don't need.This SS creme is something that I use during OJT. It has a light coverage, and it does not make my skin breakout! 

Much Love,
Nikki
