My 2013 Asian Skincare Routine

Hello sweeties,
I'm back to share with you my latest skincare routine. 
My skin is dehydrated (lacks water), really oily (produces tons of oil on the T zone), i have hyperpigmentation issues and clogged pores on my nose and chin area. I've been following this routine for 3 months. It basically consists in a Morning and Night care plus Pore Cleansing 2x per week and Deep Hydration 2x per week.
I'll be showing now which products i use and how i use them. They are mostly korean or japanese products since it's cheaper(and better quality) for me to buy products from japan and korea than buying products in Brazil! 


Morning: I only have a little bit of oilyness on my skin that've been produced during the night and i wanna remove that,but without drying out my skin. So i use the Missha Creamy Latte Cleansing foam to give a little fresh feeling to my skin. This foam is really gentle. 

Night: When i'll cleanse my skin at night i have tons of makeup on, pollution, oilyness, and dirty on my skin. So i feel like reaally cleansing my skin to remove everything. To be sure that my skin will be cleansed properly i chose the double cleansing. 
First i use the Shiseido Perfect Oil which is a cleansing oil that removes all my makeup and waterproof mascara with only 2 pumps for full face/neck. After that i wash the excess off with water, wash my hands to remove the oil with normal soap.
 Apply the Shiseido Perfect Whip on my wet hands to start to foam it up. This foam cleanser really removes all the cleansing oil residues and creates a soft foam. After applying the foam i get my charcoal konjac sponge and rub that all over my face so i can guarantee that my pores are been cleansed. 
The days when i have minimal makeup on i'll use the Haruhada cleansing water with a cotton puff to remove the excess makeup and dirty!

Hydrating + Treating

Morning: I apply my Etude House Skin Mal'gem Fresh that is a toner for oil control that provides a little bit of moisture and exfoliation on my T zone. Then i apply the Hadanomy Collagen Mist all over and pat until absorbed. I follow with the Skinfood Watery Berry Serum all over the face and when i feel my skin needs some more moisture i'll use the Skinfood Facial Water Vita C Cream.

Night: After cleansing i'll apply Pond's Flawless White Toner with a cotton pad. I use it to control my hyperpigmentation areas. Then i use my Skinfood Watery Berry Serum, and on top of that my Missha Time Revolution Night Repair Ampoule ( which i got a 10 samples packet to try out, but it really last a long time O.o) and finish with my Skinfood Facial Water Vita C Cream.

Night Packs and Eye Area

Morning: During the morning i'll apply concealer and makeup so i try to go as light as possible with creams, so for my eyes i'll only use Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Serum.

Night: After hydration i'll apply my Skinfood Salmon Brightening Eye Serum to my eye area and after the absorption i'll apply on top of it my Mizon Collagen Power Firming Eye Cream or Lâncome Genifique Yeux
For my face i finish sealing the moisture and all the products that i've applied before with a Night pack. Depending on the day and how my skin feels i'll use one of those Tony Moly Intense Care Dual Effect Sleeping Pack when i feel that my skin needs deep hydration or brightening/whitening. Laneige Water Sleeping Pack when my skin is just ok and doesn't need anything extreme. Skinfood Watery Berry Wrap Mask (i got the 10 samples packet to try out and each one is enough for 5 days use) when my skin is deeply dehydrated.

Protection and Lip Care

Protection: To protect my skin from sun i apply the Shiseido Hada Senka Mineral UV SPF 50 PA+++ all over the face and on top of it i apply a layer of bb cream to help to protect my skin from pollution and dirty. The ones i use now are the Skin 79 Super Orange Vital BB cream and Lioele Dollish Veil Vita.

Lip care: After hydrating the face i need to hydrate my lips, for hydration i apply a lip essence. The ones that i use are Etude House Kissfull Lip Essence and Isqueen Honey Kiss Lip Essence. After my lips beeing hydrated and plumped i use a lip balm to hold the moisture on it and prevent from beeing dehydrated again. The ones i use are Maybelline Baby Lips Glow for the day and Hip Hop Candy Bubble Blitz Lip Balm for the night.

Pore Cleansing and Exfoliation

Exfoliation: I exfoliate my face 2 times per week with Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream or Methode SWISS Radiance Resilience Peel ( i got some of those miniatures from I exfoliate my Nose area and Lips 2 x per week with Holika Holika Pig Nose Clear Sugar Scrub.
Pore Cleansing: I'll cleanse my nose and chin pores 2 x per week. One time i'll use the Innisfree Blackhead Heating Gel + Daiso Charcoal Mask and finish with the Lioele Pore Clean and Tightening Pack. The second time i'll use the Lioele Products. First i'll open my pores with Lioele Pore Opening Massage Gel, follow with the Lioele Blackhead Clear and finish with Lioele Pore Clean and Tightening Pack. Once in a month i'll use the Lioele Blackheadzero Nose Patch.

Face Mask

Hydration: Two times per week i'll be applying face masks or face packs to keep the hydration and nutrition of my skin! I just randomly use the mask that i want.

  • Innisfree It's Real Manuka Honey- Açai Berry- Bamboo- Gold Kiwi.
  • My Beauty Diary Black Pearl Mask
  • My Beauty Diary Bulgarian White Rose Mask
  • Cosline Strawberry Yogurt Pack
Soon i'll be adding some products on my routine. A new hydrating essence, i'll get a toner for whitening hyperpigmentation since my pond's one is almost gone. I'll be buying new face masks, a face mist to use when i'm out.

  2. So many products. Lol. I seem to have similar skin concerns to you, though. I might check out the Missha Creamy Latte foam. ^^

    1. Aww, you really should, is a really nice foam x.x the scent is just amazing for morning! x.x

  3. I need to try your pore cleansing routine! Lioele cleansing products work for you? I'm always kinda insecured with the products I've never tried before as I have acne prone skin :/ but thank your this great post! I will try to look up lioele products :D


    1. Aww, i've been loving this pore cleansing routine. I tend to have alot of blackheads and clogged pores and this is really helping me out to keep my nose and chin baby smooth x.x Lioele products are really good... i like them better than etude house skincare stuff :)My favorite one is the Lioele pore tightening pack that's a mud kind of pack that helps to clean the pores and tighten them after you have removed the blackheads ^^ Thanks for visiting Misa!!

  4. WOW no wonder you have such nice skin!!! a couple of the products you're using are on my wishlist!!


    1. My skin have alot to improve :x hehe the nice skin you see is alot of nice makeup hehehe :x I would love to see your wishlist! x.x

  5. Wow, you have an amazing skin care routine.
    I've been wanting to try the Haruhada cleansing water.
    Is it good for acne prone skin?

    1. Oh thanks :D i'm glad you enjoyed this. This cleansing water is just ok. It doesn't remove well eye makeup like waterproof mascara and black pencil liner. But is great for removing the excess of bb cream, foundation and those stuff. I only use it when i have only a little bit of makeup on, and i still wash my face with foam cleanser after that. ^^ It would work nice i don't think it would break you out but i don't recomend using it as your only step of cleansing because it ain't enough.

  6. i really love the Laneige sleeping pack! it's makes my skin so nice and dewy in the morning! this post really makes me want to try so many of the products :)
