Holy Grail Products

I am finally done marking, and just have some tasks here and there, so here's a post I've been meaning to do up since a long time ago! Here's a bunch of my favourites, all of which I swear by.

HAIRCARE


SHISEIDO TSUBAKI EXTRA MOIST SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
Ever since trying this in Hokkaido onsens, I've fallen deeply and madly in love with the way this haircare range smells and how effective it is. After just one use, I saw results in the form of softer and smoother hair. I used to be a ardent supporter of the Essentials airy and smooth shampoo range, but I have since pledged loyalty to Lord Tsubaki. You can have all my hair, oh Lord.



SKINFOOD ARGAN OIL SILK HAIR MASK PACK
This baby here provides a powerful dose of moisture every time I use it. I try not to over-nourish my hair, so I've just been using it twice a week. Love it! Smells amazing as well (as per usual Korean products).


SKINFOOD ARGAN OIL SILKY HAIR ESSENCE
I use three pumps of this hair oil every night, right out of the shower when my hair is still wet. Apparently, this practice is best for your hair because it helps to lock in moisture and protect your hair. Smells divine like the hair mask mentioned above.


BODY

RO'S ARGAN BODY CONDITIONER
It should be apparent by now that my obsession with argan oil is rather substantial. Here's another to add to the collection! Somehow I feel that products with argan oil have a very noticeable nourishing quality about them, and this body conditioner is no exception. After every shower (or whenever I feel diligent enough), I will spread small amounts all over my body while I am not completely dry yet. This helps to save product, and is the recommended application method anyway. A little sure goes a super long way!




SKINCARE

COSMETICS


I have two concealer favourites, because I use them in different areas and ways...

THE SAEM CONCEALER in 001
For normal school days, when I'm lazy to apply foundation all over my face, this is what I use on my T zone. Most of my redness and bumps are in the T zone, so I just need to give  the area a wash with this concealer. I first tried it in Korea and never looked back. I daresay it's even better than NARS radiant creamy concealer! Both are doe-foot applicator cream concealers, yet I achieve better results with the saem. It definitely covers the redness I experience, and is adequate for small bumps. 


CLE DE PEAU BEAUTE CONCEALER in Ivory
Ultra creamy yet the most natural looking. A sheer layer can provide full coverage over the ugliest of bumps. It's the one I reach for whenever an alien zit invades my facial terrain. Truly a lifesaver. 'Nuff said.
