Skincare I’m Switching for Winter
First NEW skincare item!
As the weather starts to cool down and the air becomes dry, it is essential to bring out the winter skincare. During the cold seasons, I have dry skin which needs a lot of love and care. The first skincare item I’ve included into my routine has been the Urang Brightening Blue Oil Serum.
This serum promises brightening and toning effect, fading blemishes and dark spots, and moisturizing the skin. Also it contains key ingredients such as Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil (for moisturizing) , Tocopherol (powerful antioxidant for reducing UV damages), and Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil (soothe inflammatory skin conditions and calm sensitive skin).
Full list of ingredients:
Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil, Tocopherol, (-)-alpha-bisabolol, *Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Oil (*Organic ingredient)
So far this serum has been wonderful! I can definitely see a difference after using it. My skin always looks glowy and moisturized.
A few things you SHOULD take notice:
- SMELL ~ Since the serum contains natural or organic ingredients, it has natural scent to seed and flower oil. So don’t be alarm!
- COLOR ~ Why is it blue? It contains German Chamomile Essential Oil which gives it that color.
- TEXTURE ~ The oil is not very fluid. So I recommend patting the oil serum into the skin. DO NOT RUB! *pat pat*
- TIME ~ After applying the oil serum, let it soak into the skin before continuing your skincare routine. It doesn’t take too long for your skin to soak in the oil serum. My skin personally really LOVES it.
Second NEW skincare item!
The second skincare I’ve included in my current routine has been the Urang Rose Ceramide Cream. During the cold season, I definitely prefer using a more moisturizing and thicker cream that keeps my skin supple and moisturized throughout the day. My biggest concern is my skin drying up throughout the day or my base makeup caking up. So I’ve switched up my previous cream to a thicker one.
The Urang Rose Ceramide Cream promises deep hydration especially for mature skin, calming redness, and protecting the skin barrier. Some main key ingredients are Rosa Damascena Flower Water (for reducing redness, antioxidant, and protecting the skin), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (reduce skin dryness), and Glyceryl Stearate SE (works as a emulsifier).
Full list of ingredients:
Rosa Damascena Flower Water (33%)*, Water, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Glycerin, Betaine, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Cryptomeria Japonica Leaf Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf Extract, Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract, Bacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Cetyl Alcohol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Ceramide NP (1500ppm), Rosa Canina Fruit Oil, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil (20mg) (*Organic ingredient)
So far after using the cream, my skin feels moisturized and soft. I haven’t seen much difference with reducing redness (although I don’t really have much) and skin barrier, but I will continue to use it and update you later.
** Take Notice ***
- SMELL ~ Just like the oil serum, the cream has a particular smell but this one is more familiar to the general consumer, which is rose scent.
- TEXTURE ~ It is a very smooth but rich texture, so a little goes a long way. Don’t be like me and lather a big blob on my face. 😀
Overall, I am quite impressed by both the blue oil serum and ceramide cream. They have been a great new staple for my winter skincare routine. For a very long time, I was skeptical about oil serums, but the Urang Brightening Blue Oil Serum has changed my mind. I will continue to use these and update you in a future blog post or Youtube video. Please look forward to it!
