My Japan Holiday Trip – Skincare Routine

I thought I should share what skincare products I brought and used during my recent Japan trip. This particular one is special because I’ve yet traveled in any winter weather since I started my skincare journey few years ago. So let’s just say this is sort of an educated experiment that turned successful.

Obviously, I researched and visualized the weather conditions and temperature. It was the end of winter, coming into spring. With that in mind, I had a general idea of a set of products that I want to bring with me. Of course, they have to fit into my skincare bag. I had to negotiate here and there to make sure the bag isn’t too heavy. The total weight overall came to around 1 – 1.5 kg, I think. Or probably more *HA*. The bag did feel heavy.

Another info you need to know is I got sick a couple days before my departure. Sore throat, fatigue, headache. All escalated into one nasty cold, congestion with frequent coughing within the first few days of my trip. Thank goodness, I was prepared.

Without further adieu, let’s get to it!


Face Oil Virgin: Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant +

Now, let this be an advance notice that I am a beginner in the whole face oil territory. I’ve only started using face oil dutifully sometime earlier this year. I began interested in face oil after reading DesZell’s article about the Trilogy Rosehip Oil Antioxidant+. Believe me, I still had that why-the-hell-do-I-want-to-put-oil-on-my-face look. But then, lucky strike came along and I got this at an auction for an extremely good price, or shall I say, cheap! I thought, hey, why not give this a chance.

I tried this a couple of times, three, max, and decided I didn’t like it. Or, more like I was confused about it. I feel it didn’t quite fit right into my still-raw skincare regime. And so, I left it on my vanity table for the longest time. That was in 2013. Not until I read the article again and by then my skincare regime had fully grown, I felt the need to give this another try.
