Skin analysis or diagnostic is crucial to determine the type of skin we have and the type of skincare products our skin need. Almost all major counter skincare brand have their own skin analysis device. And recently Biotherm Malaysia launches a brand new device called the Blue Smart. It is a hand-held gadget but powerful digital device that changes and revolutionize skin analysis.
Toner, or some company refer as lotion is generally used after cleansing but before applying moisturizer. This step is crucial as it act as a bridge between the cleanser and moisturizer. Many would skip this step thinking it is unnecessary or not important, just like how some people would skip eye cream, which they deemed as unimportant as well. I was one of the many a few years ago. I would skip toner but not my eye cream because I learnt about a simple fact on using a proper eye cream than relying on face moisturizer as an eye cream. Anyhow that is a totally different topic 😀
Today I’m going to talk about the basic of skin toner. I’m not going into extreme detail i.e. astringents, floral water, fresheners, herbal toner and so on. I’m going to cover the few different types of toner in basic. This is what you should know at least. I remember a few years ago I would skip toner because no BA would tell me toner is equally important in a skin care regime. They would tell me I can skip it as it doesn’t do anything to the skin. There are so many different types of toner or lotion available in the market. Do you know which one you need?
While I was composing product review for a new skin care range that I’m currently on, I feel the need to walk you through types of moisturizer and how to choose the right one for your skin type. Come to think of it, it will be a bit odd (for me) if I don’t start from the cleanser up to moisturizer. Being as random as I can be sometimes, this brings us to today’s topic – Facial Cleansers.
There are so many different type, brand, texture, function and benefits cleansers out there to choose from. Sometimes I can’t help but to wonder, is it really necessary to came out with so many type? I don’t usually go with a specific cleanser targeting a skin concern unless I have a severe breakout then only I’ll start searching for something to calm the breakout. Otherwise, I’m more into texture type of cleanser.
Last month’s local magazine has been keeping me busy and I thought boy, that was such a good GWP magazine edition. None prepared me for this!
It all happen yesterday during lunch time. My colleague told me that one of her friend posted a picture on CLEO Collector’s Edition January 2014 that comes with a set of Biotherm skin care worth RM200. So three of us (2 girls and 1 guy) hopped into my car and I opted to go to the nearest Borders outlet and that’s at Tropicana City Mall.
CLEO Collector’s Edition January 2014 is a limited edition magazine collaboration in conjunction with the magazine’s new look. There are ample supply of stocks right at the entrance of Borders Tropicana City Mall. The picture taken at the store doesn’t justify the stock level but trust me, it’s a few layer stacked up. I notice that most people will just stand in front of the magazine, stared at it and walk away without buying any. I’m curious why lol.
