I’m heading to Korea tomorrow and in the midst of packing, I thought I’d share a few essentials from my Summer skincare routine. I don’t plan on bringing too many items since Seoul is the number one hub spot for skincare (be prepared for a huge haul when I get back). For now, here are the items I plan to bring along with me on my trip!
Ole Henricksen Wonderfeel Double Cleanser: I’ve always been a huge fan of Ole Henricksen products so when they gifted me their newest product, I had no doubt it would be amazing! It came at the perfect time, too because I just exhausted my entire bottle of Garnier’s Micellar Water (which has been my holy grail make-up remover for months). After a week or so of using this product, I would definitely put this on the top of my list! It instantly removes all the gunk off my face and really soothes my skin with it’s cold creamy texture.
Authority Moisturizer (Day and Night): These are probably my absolute favorite moisturizers at the moment! I always apply this in the morning before applying make-up and at night after cleansing my face. There is a slight ointment smell to it but you get used to it. Overall, it doesn’t feel sticky after application, provides ultimate hydration, and leaves my skin extra smooth.
Laniege Eye Gel: As I’m approaching the later half of my twenties, I’m making it a point to take better care of my skin – starting with my eyes because this is the area that tends to develop the most wrinkles as we age. This eye gel delivers TONS of water to your lids and leaves them feeling so refreshed. I highly recommend applying this before landing for a boost of wake-me-up brightness!
Cosmos Botanicals Everyday Salve: Like I’ve mentioned before, the cabin air and adjusting to a new environment in general can really dry out my skin. This is essentially a multi-stick that you can use for your face, lips, and body. All you have to do is apply it to any any problem areas you may have, rub in the product, and you’ll find that it really helps seal in much needed moisture. I like to apply this to my lips and hands because I find that these tend to get the most dry when I travel.
What’s your favorite skincare products at the moment? I always love trying and incorporating new ones into my routine so feel free to share in the comments below!
