Two Skin Care Brands I Trust

I know it’s been a while since I last shared my favorite skin care products on the blog… so here it goes!

Here are two skincare brands that I have been using for quite some time now. They both have an amazing range of skincare products and they both target different needs. There are no set rules I follow when it comes to my skincare routine, as I basically see what my skin needs at the moment and apply as needed.

La Mer

Miracle Broth is at the heart of La Mer and is infused into every treatment in this collection. This elixir is formulated with hand-harvested sea kelp, and other nutrients and minerals unlocked via a natural fermentation process. This skincare line is all about natural healing. It gives our skin natural moisture and regenerates it from inside and out. It also soothes the dryness and smoothens the roughness of the skin, leaving us with a radiant and healthy-looking skin instead!

Do you know that there’s a La Mer moisturizer for every need and complexion? Here are their magic 5 moisturizers :

The Moisturizing Soft Lotion (leftmost) is a weightless hydrating lotion that absorbs quickly. It is very soothing and moisturizing but does not leave a heavy feel on the face. Its versatile, lightweight lotion formula and its pump packaging make it ideal for climate-hopping! I bring this with me in all my travels!

The Moisturizing Soft Cream (second to left) is a lightweight moisturizing cream that nourishes skin for an instant luminous and satin finish. This is good in healing dryness, dullness and uneven texture on the skin, as well as fine lines and wrinkles. I use this moisturizer at night!

The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream (middle) is a cooling gel cream that calms and replenishes, delivers healing moisture for a fresh, healthy radiance. It is quite refreshing to the touch, so this gel moisturizer is ideal for daytime, warm or humid weather, and other times when a true cream seems too rich. I say it’s perfect for our Manila kind of weather!

The Moisturizing Matte Lotion (second to right) is another weightless moisturizing lotion that balances shine and softens the look of pores for a fresh, matte finish. It is created with the smallest moisture spheres to rapidly deliver hydration to the center of skin. It also has the powerful antioxidant lime tea to protect against stress and pollution. I love how this removes the oiliness and shine to my face!

Creme de La Mer Moisturizing Cream (rightmost) is an ultra-rich moisturizing cream that creates an instant dewy finish. This highly coveted moisturizer is known for its power to hydrate and heal dryness in as little as three days. Skin looks instantly radiant and naturally balanced as imperfections fade. This goes with me in all my travels to cold countries!

Estee Lauder

The other skincare brand I also fully trust when it comes to treating my skin well is Estee Lauder, a brand I’ve gotten to know from my grandmother and mother, two women who took skincare seriously. There are four products here that I’ve tried and tested over time.

Micro Essence Treatment Lotion is the first-of-its-kind “essence-in-lotion” that strengthens our skin’s foundation  to reveal a translucent, “angelic glow” from within. This liquid lotion strengthens our skin’s barrier, which is an essential foundation for healthy skin. It also calms irritation so energy is directed towards re-building and re-strengthening. And most importantly, it intensifies deep moisture so our skin becomes strong and yet supple to the touch and reflects light from within!

Advanced Night Repair Serum (ANR) is a powerful nighttime renewal serum for radiant, youthful-looking skin. It instantly gives luminosity and hydration. This powerful serum dramatically reduces the signs of aging, while maximizing the power of the skin’s natural nighttime renewal. It improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin smoother, stronger, and more hydrated. With this serum, I wake up looking younger and refreshed!

Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix has an ultra-nourishing, skin strengthening formula that provides a 360° cushion of plumping support to give eyes a fresh, “wide-open” look. This product has been proven to dramatically reduce the looks of lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. It strengthens the delicate skin around the eyes. I seriously cannot live without this eye concentrate as it gives me that wide awake look (even though I sleep for only 6 hours or sometimes less) versus the tired looking eyes of before!

Revitalizing Supreme + Global Anti-Aging Power Soft Creme has an ultra-soft, lightweight texture, developed for and tested on Asian women, that delivers powerful anti-aging benefits and minimizes the look of pores over time. This is the one creme that “does it all” for me. This multi-action moisturizer cocoons skin in moisture and is the potent key to younger-looking skin, helping unlock skin’s youth potential. So if you just need one product that can do it all for you — this is the one!

    1. I use a lot of skin care brands, depending on the needs of my skin at the moment. I use La Mer, Estee Lauder, La Prairie, Sisley, Murad and many more! Just like makeup, I dont use just one or two brands. But right now, I am definitely using a lot of La Mer and Estee Lauder — and loving the effects on my skin so far! 🙂

  1. Your post based on beauty trends is unique and good. As well in this post you have mention abouut the products with eco-friendly ingredients, there’s been a consumer-led push for products with packaging designed with environmental conservation in mind as well. Good skin care tips indeed!
