Clinique Facial Soap and Clarifying Lotion


I sort of ‘failed’ my skin care contributions last week. I should have posted daily too, so all I currently use I could have covered than only the newly incorporated to my routine. Anyway, skin care week is over, but I’ll resume to write about the others I use, particularly, the ‘oldies, but still goodies.’ 🙂

Skin care week: COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pad


Starting today until the end of the week, Joiz and I will blog about current skin care. Please keep in mind we both have oily skin, so some might not work for you if you have dry skin. We hope you’ll find this series informative. Please leave a comment if there’s something you still wish to know about our skin care products or routine. 🙂
