Several weeks ago – I shared with my IG followers, some goodies that were sent to me from The Face Shop to incorporate into my daily skin regimen. I was naturally quite excited to try the Korean skin care line at home – as it’s no secret I struggle with maintaining a good skincare routine. The paraben-free products have been on my radar for some time, and I’d love to share my thoughts with you on what I love about the SMIM line.
The line itself includes about 8-10 different products offering the ability to care for your skin both first thing in the morning, and at the end of the night. As I am super pressed for time, I started small with limiting the number of steps I included as part of my routine – to get comfortable with daily use of the line. The following has been part of my nightly routine.
- After washing my face from the day’s makeup and oil build up, I start with The SMIM Radiance Collagen Toner – perfect for improving elasticity and providing deep hydration, while brightening and balancing out skin tone.
- I then moisturize with The SMIM Firming Care Emulsion cream – which tackles wrinkles and brightens the skin texture.
- I cap things off by applying The SMIM Firming Care Cream, which further solidifies Step #2 – in working to prevent fine lines while hydrating the skin.
- I keep the Oil Control Water Cushion Foundation compact handy for long days – as I’ve always had oily skin. It controls sebum while adding a polished liquid foundation look.
It’s only been a few weeks with sticking to these three main steps – and despite being too tired the odd few nights to go through this routine, (
I cave every now and then with my usual kitchen sink Sunlight face-wash special), I have noticed a difference in my skin. Its softer, less oily, and makes applying layers of makeup in the morning an easy task. To ensure I wasn’t being duped – I invited a friend over for a girls night and had her also go through the steps, and she loved it!
Each product from the line ranges in price of about $40-$60. While it may seem daunting to purchase each piece of the line all at once – I encourage my readers to start small with a couple of essentials and work towards owning the whole line. You won’t have to think twice on this given how amazing your skin will feel!
