Sometimes when it comes to skin care we get so wrapped up in our cleansers, moisturizers & serums that we forget about the little guys. By little guys I mean the treatment products that aren’t always used every day but definitely necessary to have around. The products that pretty much save the day when we are experiencing a breakout, heavy bags under our eyes, dry dehydrated lips, or maybe even recovering lashes, after we take out our falsies. Today, I bring to you four hero products that I have added to my skin care routine to help me fight off any of these issues I may be faced with!

 

1. COSRX Centella Blemish Cream :

The first trick to improving any flaws in your skin is identifying your skin type! My skin type would fall under the “normal to dry” category. With that being said, I’m lucky enough not to experience too many breakouts! But every now and again, I do experience hormonal pimples or zits around my chin or cheek area. And like many others that I know, I pick away at it until the pore is unclogged but will result in a dark spot on my skin. When I got my hands on the Centella Blemish Cream by COSRX, I was absolutely excited to try it out. This blemish cream, I would use as a spot treatment on the affected area and allow it to work its magic on my skin, avoiding any picking, or scaring the skin! Everyone needs a spot treatment in their skin routine - trust me!

2. Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (Berry):

This next product I’ve heard soooo many people rave about over and over again, I needed to find out what the hype was all about! The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask has worked wonders on my lips in just a matter of a week. You should apply this product before bed as suggested, but if I’m being completely honest with you, I use this product all day long! Whenever my lips are lacking moisture, I apply it right away.

3. PETITFEE Gold & Snail Hydrogel Eye Patches:

I’m sure plenty of you have your go-to eye creams for your under-eye area, but what harm could it be to do double the treatment? Under eye patches in my opinion was probably one of the best inventions made! However, Petitfee’s Gold & Snail (yes snail) Hydrogel Eye Patches were quite interesting to me, mainly the snail slime aspect. Gold and Snail Slime Extract penetrate into skin rapidly and help create firm, healthy, and a glowing complexion. I’m always open to trying out new products at least once. I tried these babies out for the first time and immediately fell in love! While it will take more time to see a difference in firmness, my under-eye area felt super hydrated and moisturized after one use.

4. ETUDE HOUSE My Lash Serum:

Last but not least the product I’ve been most excited about, Etude’s Lash Serum! Some people are blessed with amazingly long lashes or lashes that have just the right amount of volume. Me on the other hand, missed the lucky card when it comes to lashes. I’ve been on the hunt for a product to help with the length and volume of these lashes. It is instructed to apply this serum on the lashes before bed, on clean makeup-free lashes. The first few nights it was a challenge for me to remember to apply this product before bed because it is so out of my norm. Each day I’m remembering more and more to continue to apply it to see the results I've always wanted. I can’t wait to compare a before and after photo of my lashes a month from now!
