#Kbeauty time !
I have not gone for any facial or laser treatments for a year and some of my clients and readers asked how did i maintain the good skin and still keep it good ?
I did my own “facial care” at home. I got my own peeling sets and starting to use more derma skin care brands. But i am also still using HERA toners and emulsions , eye-gel and cell-bio essence ! Their waterin eye gel is good and i have been using the toner, emulsion, eye-gel and cell-bio essence since 2013 !
I mask my face everyday and apply sleeping mask to hydrate my skin overnight in the air-con room. It is all about discipline and the right type of product. Also , i remove make up and cleanse my face thoroughly. And i exfoliate my skin once or twice a week with SkinFood Black Sugar Scrub. I guess that is why i do not have black heads.
I was really busy these days and sometimes i will forget. So i wrote on a post-it note and paste on my dressing shelf. Lol my housemate paste step by step yoga exercise steps on her wall to remind herself to exercise ( she is trying to lose weight ) whereas i paste skincare steps on the wall. Haha !
This is a new brand name im going to recommend : ReneCell (www.renecell.com)
My female Korean housemate recommended this brand to me. That was how i got to know this brand. Did some research and it was selling like hot cakes especially one of their Placen Filler Magic System creams.
It is a high end Korean derma skin care brand.
A 11 steps set cost KRW 1,100,000 !
I finished my old bottle of toners and in need of new one. So my bro-in-law got it for me and brought it to our Taiwan trip to pass it to me! YAYY !
ReneCell Multi-Peptide Toner
It is a hydrating toner and also supposed to provide firmness to the skin with its peptide ingredient.
With a spray noose. So you need not worry about over-spilling.
So here comes the review !
I bought it at KRW35,500. I was expecting it to be a little more serum like since it is marketed as a hydrating toner. The ones from Hera are more ‘serum-ish’ so a small amount will do to apply and spread around your whole face.
The texture for this toner is more “watery” so it gets absorbed very fast into the skin. And the watery texture means i need to spray quite abit inorder to spread it all my face. So does it have any hydrating factor ? Maybe it does get absorbed deep into the skin because it is like water. But my skin is abit dry these days ( i work in air-conditioned enviroment and i sleep in aircon roomeveryday..my hubby cannot stand SG’s hot weather. The fan or aircon is always on and blowing at us ). So i need to spray more. But it works for me. Because my essence and serum are quite thick in texture. So a light and fast absorbing toner will be more compatible. This also will work well on combination skin. I switch my toners between this and the HERA aquabolic moisturizing toner. HERA toners will never fail me. On days my skin felt really very dry , i will use the one from HERA.
This toner reminds me of the one from CNP. Texture is similar.
Should you buy ?
Yes..if you like the CNP toner ( which works and feels similar ) , you will also like this !
ReneCell Absorber Hyaluronic Serum
Bought this at KRW48,000
This is quite expensive and i saw alot of people carted it out and has alot of good reviews. There are 3 serums available. Vita C Face Serum , Recovery serum and Hyaluronic serum.
30ml for KRW 48,000. So i am quite careful when i use it. Lol i try not to pump out too much.
The texture is very smooth and i really like it. It moisturises my skin and easily absorbed. No wonder it has alot of good reviews !
Should you buy ?
Yes..if you have oily skin, maybe you need to go for other serums instead.
I will definitely want to try the other creams and serums next time !
