My Current Skincare Routine + GIVEAWAY DETAILS

5:48:00 PM


If you guys have been following me for a while, you will know how much I love to take care of my skin. Admittedly enough, I only started a "real" skincare routine a couple of years ago but ever since then, I've really made it a point to make sure I keep my skin as healthy as I can with a proper diet, a healthy amount of rest and most importantly, great products that work for my super sensitive skin.

I've also had an obsession with all things French- from the hair styles to the makeup, the fashion and the skincare, I just love how simple and quick French woman are when it comes to keeping themselves looking their best. So you could only imagine my delight when one of my favorite French brands NUXE asked me to work with them! *ugly cries on the inside*

I've been a fan of NUXE for about 2 years now, and I've been a loyal user of their Crème Prodigieuse Eye Contour (more on that later) at night and my under eyes not only feel so much softer and smoother, but my makeup goes on so much better under my eyes too. So, for the past few weeks, I've been testing out a bunch of NUXE products and incorporating them into my skincare especially for this extra hot summer season. I can confidently tell you that not only do these products smell fantastic, but they work wonders for the skin too! Read on to find out just what I've been using and how NUXE has helped transform my skin.

And.... FOR THE DETAILS OF MY HUGE GIVEAWAY WITH NUXE ON INSTAGRAM!!!


Morning Routine


I have a very simple, straight to the point, no muss no fuss routine in the mornings. Since my radio show is from 10AM-1PM in Ortigas, I have to make it a point to leave early in order to avoid traffic. With this in mind, my morning routine is quick, easy and very refreshing.

My morning mantra: Cleanse-Refresh-Moisturise-Protect.


I start off with the Micellar Foaming Cleanser with Rose Petals to gently cleanse my skin and wake me up. Because it's infused with rose petals (the roses that Cleopatra herself used to use btw... no biggie *insert hair flip emoji*) I find that it helps calm my skin and leave it soft and smooth, ready for the rest of my skincare. This cleanser also helped me when I had a pretty bad breakout (this breakout happened right before I switched to a purely NUXE skincare routine btw) and I noticed that my red spots calmed down a great deal the more I used this cleanser.



Next up: My under eyes. Again, being someone who doesn't really use much makeup especially for my show (I'm on radio guys, ain't nobody gonna see me, you know what I'm saying? lol) I needed a product that would not only hydrate my under eye area, but also help hide my dark circles. I've been using the Nuxellence Eye Contour and OMG IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE GUYS! First of all, I store this eye cream in the fridge because of its massaging applicator. It really does help depuff my under eye area especially when I've just woken up and because of its pinkish tone, it cancels out my dark circles- it basically doubles as a concealer! All you need is 3 dots under your eyes and one by your brow bone. The cooling applicator makes me feel like I'm at a spa (at 7:30 in the morning) and it helps wake me up too.


I then move on to moisturising my skin. For this I use the Crème Fraîche 48HR Moisturising Cream. Despite it being scented (it smells glorious) it doesn't in any way break me out. Because I've got combination skin, I find that this thick (but non-greasy) moisturiser is perfect for my dry cheeks and still gentle enough for my T-zone. And because of how thick it is, you really only need a little bit for your entire face. I smooth it on and in no time it's absorbed into my skin, leaving me feeling all French and fabulous (give it a sniff and you'll understand what I mean Haha!)


Lastly, SPF. You guys have heard me talk about sunblock for ages now because let's face it, sun damage is real, girls! There's nothing worse than leaving your house without SPF on- trust me on this. Ask any dermatologist and they'll tell you the same thing. It's not about staying fair, it's about protecting your skin against the harmful rays of the sun and preventing sun spots, sun damage and wrinkles. I've been using the NUXE Sun High Protection SPF50 Face Cream sunblock and it's been such a dream. Unlike other SPFs, this one has such a pleasant and gentle smell, making it feel less like a powerful SPF and more like a moisturising cream. Second, it doesn't clog my pores at all, because it's thinner than other SPFs I've tried. Also, I've tested the camera flashback and thankfully, no sign of Casper the Friendly Ghost in pictures which means you girls can wear it under your makeup too! This is such a staple for me now, I absolutely love this SPF and I'm including it in my April Favorites Video coming soon on my channel.

And that's basically my morning! Super simple but very effective. I've been thoroughly enjoying the products and they really helped lighten my red spots post-breakout. I now understand why French women have such fantastic skin- it's all down to the skincare products they use!

Evening Routine


Now let's talk about my evening skincare routine. If you ask me, there's nothing better than relaxing after a long day of work! This sounds super sosyal of me to say but I love lighting a couple of candles around my room right after I get out of the shower. I love setting the mood in my room as it helps me relax more and get ready for bed. Now if we're talking skincare at night, I have a more relaxed and semi-indulgent routine.


I love to do a double cleanse in the evenings to make sure my skin is super clean before bed. Don't believe everything you hear- double cleansing is a practice that most women do and it doesn't dry out your skin, as long as you use the right products. I start off with the Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Petals on a cotton pad all over my face, regardless if I'm wearing makeup or not (but I always have kilay on because, well, #KilayIsLife girls) I love Micellar water for removing dirt and makeup because not only is it super gentle, but it feel so refreshing on the skin. Afterwards I move on to the Micellar Foaming Cleanser with Rose Petals again, because of how well it cleans my skin. And then we get to the relaxing and pampering part of the evening.


After a long day of working in front of my computer, driving and watching way too many YouTube videos (yes, I binge watch a whole lot!) I love to treat my under eyes to the Crème Prodigieuse Eye Contour, the eye cream that I've been using for the past 2 years already. It smells super relaxing and is deeply moisturising especially for my tired eyes. I love how despite it being thick, it easily absorbs into my skin. I use light tapping motions under my eyes as a little treat too. :)


Then we get to the moisturiser. On days when I wear a bit more makeup or when my skin feels tighter and more tired than usual, I love to slap on the Crème Fraîche 48HR Moisture SOS Rescue Mask for that extra boost of hydration. Unlike those wash off masks, the Crème Fraîche de beauté line is all about introducing moisture and hydration back into your skin, without making it feel heavy or greasy. I just slap it on and sleep with it on my face and the next day my skin feels so much lighter and supple!

On the days that I don't use the mask, I opt for the Crème Fraîche 48HR Moisturising Cream again, because it keeps my skin happy and healthy. The smell is super relaxing talaga guys, it smells like a spa!


And then we move on to my lips. Because my lips are notorious for always being chapped and dry, I've been using the Rêve de Miel Lip Balm. GUYS IT'S LIKE HONEY FOR YOUR LIPS!!! Thick, lush and delicious, this has become my Holy Grail lip balm especially for evenings. It deeply moisturises my lips and I find that when I go to bed I wake up the next day and my lips still feel smooth and moisturised, with a bit of the product still on them. The reason why I don't put this balm on in the morning is mainly because if I decide to wear lipstick, it won't stick! Because the balm is super powerful and effective, it concentrates on deeply nourishing my lips, making them super plump too!


Lastly, to cap everything off, I love treating my body to a shower of the Huile Prodigieuse Beauty Dry Oil. Now I understand why this is NUXE's cult favorite product. Not only does it smell divine, but it doesn't leave my body feeling sticky or greasy. Because my body is quite dry, I used to use lotion all over and then stand for a couple of minutes waiting for everything to dry. But with this dry oil, I just spray it on my body and then rub it in! I really look forward to this last step because my entire body smells super good and my skin feels so well taken care of. I also spray a bit of the oil on the ends of my hair, just as a bonus treat!

And there you guys have it- my current skincare routine. I honestly have never been happier with how my skin has been looking and feeling ever since I switched to NUXE products. Granted, they might not work for everyone, but do keep in mind that my skin is very sensitive and easily prone to bad reactions, which is why I am confident in recommending NUXE to everyone who asks. I was pleasantly surprised to find that their products are also made with natural ingredients, making them suitable for all skin types.
