“Feeling good about being in your own skin is important.”
Living in the Las Vegas (basically a dessert) really takes a toll on your skin.
The first time I’ve experienced the heat here, when we came looking for apartments, my skin felt so dry. And no matter how much moisturizer I put, it doesn’t last that long. At the time, I didn’t have a proper skin care routine than the one I have now.
I started using Innisfree after trying on a sample of their intensive hydration set. One use and I was hooked! My skin felt so smooth and hydrated afterwards. I’ve been using the 10-Step Korean Skin Care Routine but in this post I’ll only be talking about the Innisfree products that I have. (I’ll blog about the rest next time.) This post will mostly focus on hydration and moisturizing which are great tips now that summer is fast approaching.
Innisfree Hydrating Cleansing Foam with Green Tea
This feels great after washing your face. It’s very soft and foamy. It definitely cleans up my face but not to the extent that it dries it up. I usually use this right after my micellar water to remove makeup. After applying the foam, you don’t feel any left over residues. My skin feels fresh and supple after washing. And I suppose with its green tea content, it’s also very soothing.
Innisfree Intensive Hydrating Serum with Green Tea Seed
This has been my go-to when I’m too busy to do my 10-step routine. There are moments when you get too busy or tired that you don’t have time for all of those steps. But this is the one thing that I can’t live without cause it just works so well for me in terms of moisturizing.
This serum does not feel sticky at all when you apply it on your skin. It does have that slippery or watery feeling but it absorbs right away and you’ll feel very moisturized afterwards. I love that it’s very lightweight and it doesn’t make my skin oily afterwards.
Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Mask Aloe
I don’t use this all the time. Maybe once or twice a week. But every time I use it, I always have that minty fresh feeling afterwards. One thing that I love about this is that it’s not drippy at all when you remove it from it’s packet. It has just enough excess for rubbing on the neck and chin.
Right after removing it, like most masks, it’ll leave a sticky but cooling effect on your skin. It takes a while for it to be absorbed but once it does, the sticky feeling goes away with it and it leaves a tightening feel on your face. And even after waking up the next morning, you’ll still feel smooth and well hydrated.
Innisfree Intensive Hydrating Cream with Green Tea Seed
This is usually the last step of my skin care routine. I don’t apply too much of it though since it’s very heavy and thick. Also, this might not be too good for those who tend to have oily skin. But it does provide a lot of hydration for your skin which will make it feel softer and bouncier. In my opinion, this is better used at night when you don’t have any makeup on.
“Be your own kind of beautiful.”
Overall, since we’ve moved here to Las Vegas, my face has never felt dry or stretched out. Even with just the serum, I have never had a problem with the heat and dryness. So yes, I would highly recommend this as a means of hydration for your skin.
Do you have any tips for hydrating or moisturizing skin? I would love to hear about it in the comments section!
