My Night-Time Skincare Routine

Hey musers, 

Skincare is a hot topic everywhere. Even our not-so-beauty-fussed male counterparts harbour secret curiosities about good skincare products.

I get constant requests to update you guys on what products I've been using for my skincare routine; whether I still used Hera, SK-II and if I was trying anything new. So here's to my Updated Skincare Routine video, with a bonus brief room tour for your informative pleasure!

Here are the products I use every night :
Overview of all my skincare products

 The Steps:

Step 1: SK-II Facial Treatment Essence 

I put one pump into the palm of my hands, then pat them over my face and neck.

This product can be used on the sensitive eye area too. (Note: slightly funky smell)

Step 2: Hera Aquabolic Moisturizing Water (For Normal & Dry Skin)
I use a pea size amount for my face and neck.

Step 3: Hera Aquabolic Moisturizing Emulsion (For Normal & Dry Skin)
I use one and a half pumps for my face and neck. 

The Emulsion comes with a pump applicator as it is a lotion consistency, 
whereas the Water comes with an open hole applicator. 

Step 4: SK-II Skin Signature (Moisturising Cream)
- see below for update as of April 2014

Step 5: Skinfood Watery Berry Eye Cream
The texture is light and gel-like, and has not caused any milia around my eyes. 

Step 6: Chanel Hydramax Active Nutrition Lip Balm

And just for the sake of it (I may do a separate review on this product):

Nature Republic's Soothing & Moisture Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel
- I apply this over my body, but it can be used on your face and hair as well.

April 2014 UPDATE : After finishing up with my SK-II Skin Signature Moisturiser, I am now using the SK-II Stempower Moisturiser. It is really a fantastic moisturiser. Will do an updated skincare routine post soon! 

Here's my skincare routine video:

Feel free to ask any questions about the products I use in the comments.

Do any of you guys use Hera?
