My New Basic Skincare Routine

Recently, I just found a super suitable Skincare Products for my very sensitive Skin.
I finally found it! Yay I've got many problems of  trying out new Skincare Products, I am super afraid of what if I get Break-Out of itchy red spots again!

Before I start using Avene. My Skin was peeling off because it is too dry and flaky but my inner skin was oily, so it's terrible! Imagine I got lots of oily clogged pores and skin peeling off I really don't know what to do.
This was caused by using Neutrogena ENERGIZING Foaming Cleanser for Long Term. I always thought Neutrogena Products are for Sensitive Skin but I was wrong.

Sadly I've been using it for a few years and I dare not to change, I thought that it does not causes me to have serious Break-Out so I continued for a long time. For any Facial Cleanser I do not want to try on any Japan or Korean products because they are not suitable for my skin.

The Cleanser Foam is pretty Soapy, I got the wrong concept of Cleanser, I always thought more Soapy will work cleaner for my skin. =X
I am not saying that this product can't be used but it's just not suitable for my super sensitive skin type.

I just start using Avene for about 2weeks+. Avene was introduced by my Dermatologist. I got very serious Break-Out during my teenage days.

How Serious was my Break-Out?
You can never believe how serious to the extreme I dare not to go out of my house. My mommy was also worried about my face so she decided to bring me to see consult a Dermatologist.

My face was more serious because I put make up with unknown knowledge of cosmetic products and how to remove Make-up in the proper way.

The Dermatologist gave me "Oratane" pills to consume, I recovered after eating few months plus using Avene's Soapless Gel Cleanser.

That's why I decided to change back to Avene and see if my skin will get any improvement.


Avene "Cleanance" Soapless Gel Cleanser, it's under "Cleanance" Category so I tried out other similar Products from "Cleanance" Category too. :)
It's mostly under Oily Skin Category at AveneUSA.

I got actually a pretty small face so I only need this amount of Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser. Pad some water on your face first.

Although it says Soapless but there are still foams.

After washing my face with Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser, next I will use Avene Anti-shine Purifying Lotion,  it is a bit dry like other toners but this Purifying Lotion do helps. So after using it you need a moisturizer.

Bottom of the bottle you can see a layer of powdery milky substances.

Shake it!

Use Cotton Pad and pour out about the amount same like you use Toner everytime, and pad it on your face.

Avene "Cleanance" Anti-shine Regulating Lotion, I totally love it. It suits my oily inner skin. I can't use any types of moisturizing cream but this is just great for me as it controls my oily skin too. Oil-Free! Woo.. but it's pretty small I think very soon this will finish up quickly, and I need to buy a new 1 again~

Small tube T_T My skin does not allow me to use moisturizing cream because they were so oily that they clogged my pores, eventually my face felt very hot and makes my pores hard to breathe.

Use Avene Anti-shine Regulating Lotion after using Avene Anti-shine Purifying Lotion, looks like cream but it absorbs to my skin quickly and feels not oily for me.

Yay, no more peel off dry skin outside and oily clogged pores for my skin.
I will continue to try out other products of Avene when I get better.
Only 1 week I can see the differences.

Is it suitable for all Skin Types?
I dare not to say all because I am not a skin specialist and I have combination sensitive skin. Ask for samples to try it out first.

Where to buy Avene?
If you are at Singapore you can see Avene anywhere.
Watson's or Guardian, they are having 20% Discount now. Salesgirls are very nice if you ask them they are willing to give samples. Especially West Mall's Watson's Promoter, she's very friendly.

Overseas you can check at AveneUSA, AveneUK, AveneNZ, AveneAU etc.

First time users.
For first time users you will think it does not helps because if you have not used any Soapless Cleanser before you might think that it's not clean enough. I got the feeling before when I used it for the first time. It is for sensitive skin, if you got normal skin and found suitable facial cleanser I think you don't need to try anymore hehe... If you are curious just try to ask for samples. :)

How Often do I use it?
I use it everyday, Morning and Night. It has became my New Daily Basic Skincare Routine.
All 3 Steps.

Why I discontinue using it during my Teenage Break-Out?
I feel that I've recovered so I changed to other cleansing products, at that time I don't understand how important it was to use suitable products for my combination super sensitive skin.
