I mentioned about recently adopting a comprehensive skincare routine in my previous post. I first learned about it when a former colleague of mine came across YouTube videos of Korean skincare. A bit of digging led her to the 10-step routine page of Soko Glam, which details each step, and the importance of each to keep one’s skin amazing. To be honest, I’m not following all of the steps because I have yet to discover a nice eye cream, though I heard the Olay Total Effects 7 In One Anti-Ageing Eye Cream should be effective. Have to check it out.
Anyway, if there is one addition to the routine that has proven to be helpful to my skin, it would be the “Treatments” which come in the form of boosters or serum—I just use the latter. Serums are skincare products with active ingredients that address specific issues one has with their skin—dark spots, enlarged pores, etc. These ingredients are more concentrated and are supposed to be more effective in treating one’s problems. I have always had issues with my pores, so it’s just natural for me to get a serum to target this skin concern of mine.

I have been going home lately every weekend. I’d be out drinking with friends and/or just go around the Metro and eat midnight snacks. Safe to say, I’d be on my bed early in the morning, just before the sun rises.
Before adopting a comprehensive skincare routine, my bad weekend habit would leave my face dull, too dry and as a result, rough. It’s an upsetting problem, especially when I devote a great amount of time to cleanse, tone, serum, eye cream and moisturize even when it’s 4:30 in the morning. Thankfully, I was able to find a solution, and really, by pure chance.

When I went to Singapore earlier this year, I told myself not to go anywhere near the big shopping mall areas. No to Takashimaya. No to Suntec. No to Funan, Vivo City, and the list goes on. I wanted to see the other places in the country. I know, I have been there countless times. But, I am convinced that even if you make me stay there for years, there would always be something new to discover.
Halfway through my 5-day trip, I wasn’t able to resist it; I ended up going to Bugis Junction because I was in the area anyway. While going around the mall, I happened to pass by a store of Kiehl’s. If you have never heard of it, it’s practically an “entry-level” luxury skincare brand. I consider it as such because while it’s more expensive than the typical products you might be using as a child or as a teenager (unless, you’ve been exposed to it early on), it’s not too costly compared to the likes of La Mer, and Perricone MD, among others.
