Since there has been a countless amount of request I received to make a list of skincare that adds up to less than Rp 200.000,00, here they are, the 200k skincare!
Left to right:
1. Clean & Clear Essentials Foaming Facial Wash
There is one thing I always keep in mind when choosing a facial cleanser: pick the one with the least number of claims/promises.
A facial cleanser that claims to brighten skin, clear blemishes, tighten pores, reduce wrinkles, is a big no. Why? Because they're not being realistic, which is close to lying to customers. Facial cleansers don't get absorbed, they are rinsed with water. So the most important thing a facial cleanser should have is its cleansing performance, without over-drying the skin or clogging the pores.
This Clean & Clear Facial Wash does that. It is not promising unrealistic claims. It cleanses the skin very well, it even removes light makeup extremely well, and not leaving the skin feeling tight afterwards.
I bought it for only Rp 18.000,00 at a mart. You can easily find this everywhere. Oh and I noticed that Clean & Clear has many facial wash variants, but trust me this essentials foaming facial wash one is the best variant.
2. Wardah Lightening Toner
I spent most time finding the good cheap toner because it was super difficult. They mostly have alcohol in it which I wouldn't prefer. But this one is alcohol-free and it has glycolic acid so, YES WARDAH!
I bought this toner for only Rp 23.000,00 at Guardian AEON Mall. You can easily find this everywhere because Guardian has it, local beauty stores have it, even Superindo, Carrefour and Giant have it.
It has fragrance but it's not too overpowering. It tones the skin really nicely, the texture is watery, which I love, and it's easily absorbed to the skin.
3. Wardah Hydrating Aloe Vera Gel (for morning)
I included this item as the daytime moisturiser because it moisturises the skin very nicely, it's not oily AT ALL, easily absorbed to the skin, leaving the skin feels very smooth.
Another plus is that it is a multi-use gel, you can use it on your face and body. So it's truly a good deal.
I bought this for Rp 36.000,00 at Hypermart Kemang Village. Like the lightening toner, this aloe vera gel can also be found easily everywhere.
It's a gel, you can imagine the texture. It's light and easily absorbed. What's not to love about this product?
4. Ristra AHA Regenerating Night Cream
This is a true gem, guys. I am super elated that I found this <3 <3 <3
It's an exfoliant. AHA exfoliant. That is used to exfoliate dead skin cells so your skin looks cleaner because it evens out skin tone. And after using it for a week I can see that it works well on my skin.
And it's FRAGRANCE-FREE! God, I love this product.
For you who are reluctant to buy Paula's Choice AHA Gel because it's expensive, go buy this Ristra AHA Cream. Another interesting thing about this cream is that it transforms to watery texture. It is absorbed perfectly and it improves the appearance of your skin each day.
I bought this at Hypermart Kemang Village for Rp 68.000,00. Ristra is surprisingly good, this is the first time I use their product and I am very satisfied.
5. The Masks
I am not going to explain the masks in detail because they are basically wash-off masks, that consist kaolin so it's good for people with oily-combination skin. The ingredients are pretty basic and simple but that's what I like about them.
And also they are dirt cheap. Each costs less than Rp 10.000,00.
That is all for 200k skincare post! I hope you like it and I hope these products work well on you! <3
