Cleanse, tone and moisturize that’s the skincare routine that most of us grew up to and that’s what I did until two years ago. When it comes to skin care, I can say that I’ve always been diligent. As early as 14 years old, my mom got me my first skin care kit with facial cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen. She nagged me every day to use them, or else I will regret it when I get older when dark spots and wrinkles start to appear, and of course, I was scared so even though moisturizer at that time felt oily I still followed her instructions.
I believed her because growing up I saw my mom lather cold cream on her face every night and until now she has the softest skin I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately for me, I did not get that soft skin gene, but I can say that her nagging for me to do my daily skin care seemed to work well because I grew up without any major skin issues. But then two years ago something changed, my skin just can’t take any skincare product. Any product even facial wash makes my skin super red and itchy, I thought I was just allergic to the product I used, so I went to buy other brands that are hypoallergenic and even tried baby products, but still my skin still got itchy and red, and worst I even had skin asthma. I was so frustrated at that time; then my dermatologist told me to try Korean skin care, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Taking care of your skin is so important for many reason. When it comes to finding the perfect skin care regimen it seems like you either know what you are doing or, it’s a bit difficult. If you are anything like me, it can even feel next to impossible to find just the perfect combination of products. Either something isn’t working or, I completely miss something which means that one or all my products aren’t working to their full potential. One thing I learned that I was missing in my routine was exfoliation. Sugar scrubs are the perfect way to exfoliate your skin.
Disclosure: I received Rilastil products for this review but all opinions expressed here are mine.
I am turning 40 this year and my skin has gone from fab to a little sad. I am always searching for a new system to take care of my skin. I was excited to try Rilastil. I am sure you are wondering what is Rilastil? It is an Italian based cosmetic company whose goal is to use targeted dermatological solutions to combat and resolve every problem of skin elasticity.
The first thing I did was go to the Rilastil site and I used their diagnosis center to determine what products would suit my needs and help with my skin issues. We all have skin issues so this is a great way to have the products that you need selected for you, check out their Skincare Advisor.
Here are the products that they suggested me to get:
I needed the daily care Purifying Cleansing gel. This is what I use in the shower to wash my face and before bed. It has a light fragrance and it doesn’t bubble that much. I like that after you wash your face it feels clean and there doesn’t appear to be anything left behind.
Then I get out of the shower and I use the toner. I selected the daily care toner with the vegetable extracts for normal to sensitive skin. I love this stuff it always amazes me how much dirt is still left even after you wash your skin. The toner is a great way to resolve that issue.
Then I put on the eye cream nothing looks worse then puff eyes with dark circles. I had horrible ones so I selected the Micro eye contour cream. It fights wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles with ease. I really loved this product my eye circles really resolved them selves.
Well, I guess seeing is believing these are my before images
And here are the after:

Effectively maintaining a skin care routine can be tough for busy moms! We are pulled in many different directions, and we often put ourselves last. Skin care is so important, and I recently tried a wonderful and affordable skin care system by Laneige which retails at Target. I absolutely love it! There’s wonderful science (Advance Water Science Technology) behind the Laneige products which is great, but for busy moms, it’s affordable, easy to use, practical, and gives you great skin!
Laneige offers several products in their skin care line. You can visit their website here and take the quick survey under “Find your Laneige” to see what products are best for your skin type or the issues you are trying to address whether it is anti-aging or moisturizing your face, etc. After answering the questions, the products recommended are listed for you. It’s simple, easy, and takes out the guesswork!
I use the hydration products. The Multi Cleanser has a refreshing scent which is great for the morning and calming in the evening. I really love the scent! It lathers easily and washes away the makeup and daily grime with no residue. Other products in the hydration line that I really liked are the Power Essential Skin Toner, Balancing Emulsion, Water Bank Serum, Water Bank Moisture Cream, Water Sleeping Mask, and the BB Cushion Medium. I love the velvety softness of my skin while using the products. The BB Cushion is great because it has a SPF of 50 and adds some color to my skin. It’s quick, lightweight, and easy to apply.
The science and technology behind the Laneige products is superior! My face is moisturized with a velvety softness all in the comforts of my home! I would recommend this skin care product to anyone!
