Summer Skincare in Hong Kong

Monday, August 21, 2017

I kid you not, summer in Hong Kong is blardy warm.

If it wasn't because I've been to the Hong Kong Disneyland, I probably will get super upset with the weather. Thankfully, I've been there and I didn't bother to wait until the firework show. By 3 pm, I just wanted to go back to the hotel and stay in with 16C air-conditioner cold room.

The first thing I did when I got back to my hotel room - shower and apply mask sheet.
tip: keep your mask sheet/mask pack in the mini-fridge in the hotel room to enjoy the cooling mask whenever you need it!



WHAT'S IN MY TRAVEL SKINCARE BAG?

Simple Dual Effect Eye Makeup Remover: This is a crucial step for me as I use waterproof mascara most of the time. It's so easy to remove my entire eye makeup without excessive rubbing needed!

Shu Uemura Skin Purifier: I will first use this cleansing oil to remove my entire face makeup before proceeding with double cleanse my skin.

Glamglow Clearing Cleanser: I have a few different types of facial cleanser at home and I would use them according to my skin condition. I decided to pack this because it is in travel-sized and it really cleans my skin nicely!

Simple Kind To Skin Facial Toner: I love this toner, it keeps my skin fresh and clean without drying my skin! The affordable price point for this product is a bonus too!

Kiehl's Acne Blemish Control Daily Skin-Clearing Treatment: I can't live without this spot treatment, this really works like magic on my acne and blemishes!

Skin Doctors SD White & Bright: I use this as a moisturizer twice daily as it helps with the appearance of skin firmness and moisturization. It has added the benefit of UVA filters too!


Rappol Ultra Calming Sunscreen: I can't live a day without sunscreen. This particular one from Rappol is a highly moisturizing mild sunscreen (SPF25 PA++) for daily use and has a unique feature formula of Dust Cut and UV Protector formula that helps to create a barrier between your skin and the outside world pollution. It has a mild plesant scent and not greasy at all, love it! As much as I love this product, I wish it has higher SPF especially with the crazy warm weather, I had to reapply this sunscreen every 2 hours to make sure I have sufficient SPF for my skin throughout the day.

CICA Renew Tea Tree Mask and Geranium Mask: I always bring minimum 3 sheets of mask sheet of the different variant for my trip. Tea Tree mask is perfect for my skin as I have acne prone skin type; while the geranium helps to reduce skin inflammation, relieve pain and lower stress level after a long day out! Applying mask sheet is always a way for me to allow my skin absorb the concentrated essence almost immediately and keeping my skin hydrated at the same time too. 
tip: apply the mask after toner will allow your skin absorb the essence better! ;)


ENCOS Arbutin 5% Whitening Cream: This product claimed to help whiten and brighten the skin over the time with the regular application of it. It contains arbutin 5% and it's the only skin lightening ingredient approved by KFD! I normally apply this on my cheeks as it does help on pigmentation. Although I do not have any visible pigmentation, I'm still quite worried as I am exposed to the sun almost the whole day during my trip. 

That pretty much sums up my skin care regimen during my trip to Hong Kong!
