Skin care for acne prone skin like mine is so crucial. I have to take care of my skin seriously and choose the right product for my skin so that my skin won’t break out since it is so easy to have one. So here are my 6 steps everyday skincare routine. 




Step 1 – Oil Cleanser

For some people, they will use the fancy oil cleanser for removing their makeup or just to clean their face before face wash, for me I don’t need the fancy one, as long as it works then it will be my holy grail product. I’m using the most gentle oil cleanser in the world which is baby oil. I use from Johnson’s brand, but it doesn’t matter whichever the brand as long as – again, it works.

Pour some amount on to your hand and apply it to your skin with a circular motion around 5 minutes or until your makeup off. This baby oil is also great for removing waterproof mascara. After that wipe with wet paper towel. Remember wet paper towel, because if you use dry paper towel your skin will be hurt or just regular towel but wet. For this big bottle of baby oil, I only paid for around $4 in Walmart  , and it lasts for a very long time.

Step 2 – Face wash

After I removed my makeup by using the baby oil, I will wipe my face using a wet paper towel, and then I wash my face using face wash. The face wash I use is from Equate beauty, this product looks like Neutrogena oil-free face wash, but the price is way lower. This product I got from Walmart for around $4. This face wash contains salicylic acid which is great for acne prone skin as an acne treatment. 

Step 3 – Toner

I use the toner after I wash my face with face wash. The way I apply it is after I wiped all the water from my face. I made my own face toner because until now I can’t find the right one for me, most of the toner I tried they will make my skin dry and make my pores even more visible. This DIY face toner is a mix of apple cider vinegar and water. Nothing fancy just mixes them all and shake it before use. Apply on to your face by using a cotton pad. Make sure the apple cider vinegar still has “the mother” in it.




Step 4 – Serum

I found that my skin will be even smoother if I apply the serum. I bought it from Ipsy because I got a discount. The price was around $16 and because of the discount, I got it for around $7.  It is Clarisea Radical Rosehip. I like this serum because it has the scent of grapeseed after I read the ingredients, it does have 100% grapeseed oil in it. So, this product is not fake. I feel my face is so smooth and brighter after I use this. I don’t know it just my feeling or it actually does. Well, I feel good using this product.

Step 5 – moisturizer

The next step is using a moisturizer, I got from Cetaphil here. I have been using this brand from long back until now. It just good on my skin, no breakout until now, and also because I live in Hackensack which is a cold place, moisturizer is a must. Never ever skip moisturizer even you have an oily skin type. The oily skin is because the skin is lacking moisture, that’s why they produce more oil to moisturize the skin itself.

step 6 – Medication

The last steps actually not for everyday routine but when I need I will do it like a week straight. This product actually is a 10% benzoyl peroxide. I bought the CVS brand because it is cheap and the percentage of benzoyl peroxide is quite high. I only use this product when I get pimples which is once a month, after that I will not use it again. This product can also make the skin super dry and itchy if we apply too much ( like what I did ), so be careful.




Those are my 6 steps everyday skincare routine. I have to do all those steps to prevent my face from getting acne which I don’t want anymore. How about you guys? Do you have the same routine as me? Let me know in the comment below. xoxo

Hi everyone. It has been a long time since I review a product. So here we go, one of the products that I got from my Ipsy July Glam bag, a face mask sheet from the secret key nature recipe in honey. To be honest, I never use face mask sheet before just because I don’t have the interest to try them on, but now I have it from my subscription so why not right. So here are my review | Face Mask from Secret Key.




An Easy Way to have skin care when you travel

I know when we are traveling somewhere there is no way we remember to think about beauty regime like masking our skin, all the thing we need to is just enjoying the holiday under the sun with the loved one, but with this face mask you still can do your skin care in 15 to 30 minutes while you enjoying your journey in the plane.




the application is easy

 As I said before the package is simple and easy to go, so does it with the application. They put way to do it at the back of the package, in case for some people they don’t know how to use it. The mask has a soft scent which I like and it is so refreshing.

The size was right for my big face

As you can see the mask sheet was covered all over my face even my face is big, but I don’t like those part where I think it supposed to cover my eyes. It was just awkward. That part wasn’t cover my eyes nor hanging there wasn’t very useful. So I think if the just put that part over the nose area will be great. Well, you see my nose didn’t get any of it.

This face mask makes me think to have another face mask sheet later on. Ipsy sent me 2 of them but another one is used before I took pictures. The conclusion is I like this product. I saw on Amazon the price for this mask is around $7. I still looking for the real price because I search in ipsy even they don’t have.

I think that’s all my review | Face Mask from Secret Key. Hopefully, you enjoyed it. Thank you for visiting my blog. By the way, do you like to use face mask sheet too? Which brand do you usually have? Tell me in the comment below. Bye xoxo
