Welcome back to Halsadiya Beauty blog 💃🏾
Guys, I haven’t been so active with blogging and even social media. There’s a lot going on with me rn, and I will be posting weekends- as that’s the only time I have to myself.
You all know how I’m so obsessed with having a perfect skin. I’ve always struggled with contact dermatitis, breakouts, acne & finding the right set of products that won’t irritate my skin. Guess what, I’ve found my perfect basic skincare regimen.
Having a skincare regimen is beneficial for your skin. If you are not going to do anything else to your skin, just consider the basics; cleanse, exfoliate, tone & moisturize. Your skin will thank you for the basics. It’s pretty simple and not time consuming.
Getting to know your skin & what your are putting on it is the most important step in finding the right products.

● K-BEAUTY OR NAH???
K-beauty or Korean beauty is the biggest skincare regimen trend. Almost everyone is into K-beauty.
K-beauty products originate and are made in Korea, it is designed to nurture the skin towards your desired results with consistency & highly personalized skincare routine and also work long-term which is awesome.
Also, K-beauty contains ingredients that are innovative and inspired by nature like Snail mucin, Camellia, Centella Aciatica leaf water etc.
K-beauty is the secret to looking youthful. Have you ever wondered why those Korean’s hardly age, like no wrinkles, fine lines, sunburn & have a glass like skin??? Their aesthetic is so different from others as it focuses on health, hydration and lack of pigmentation. It’s all bout nourishing your skin so it looks amazing without makeup, rather than the British & English that invest in products to cover it all up- hiding those flaws rather than embracing them and nurturing them.
COSRX is the only K-beauty products I’ve ever tried and I love them and sticking to those products. Cosrx products are affordable and known yo deliver quality results with consistency.
● MY BASIC SKINCARE ROUTINE
My basic skincare routine consists on just few steps and products. I will be reviwing these products 💁😉
▪ COSRX LOW PH GOOD MORNING GEL CLEANSER
This cleanser is a bomb 🔥. When @beautyretailng told me to try out this cleanser, I didn’t even hesitate, I knew I had to buy it no matter the cost. I got this for 8000 NGN from her.
This cleanser contains botanical ingredients and mild acids like tea tree oil, natural BHA, evening primrose flower extract and lot more which refine pores, control oil and balance moisture. This cleanser removes impurities, while hydrating and restoring the skin’s natural pH. It has a PH of 5 and suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive and dry skin.
I use this cleanser twice a day (morning and night). It’s a clear white gel cleanser and the consistency is great. It makes my face feel so smooth, supple and extremely clean. Yass, I’m going to repurchase over and over 💃🏾
▪ MARIO BADESCU GLYCOLIC ACID TONER
I was a bit skeptical bout this product when I first got it. I bought it along with the Neutrogena acne grapefruit moisturizer. I thought my skin was irritated by this toner till I found out it was the moisturizer.
This toner is pretty great. Mario badescu products are not over hyped, they work wonders 😍. I bought this for 10000 NGN from @thebpshop_ .
This alcohol free and mild resurfacing toner brightens and balances skin post-cleanse. It contains 3% Glycolic acid, Grapefruit and Aloe that works to refine pores & diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone- revealing a more radiant and youthful looking complexion. The pH of this toner is 3.4.
I use this toner after cleansing preferably at night . Just a little goes a long way, I do not like to use much as it tends to make my face a bit sticky. I have a combination/sensitive skin and this toner works great for my skin type.
▪ COSRX NATURAL BHA SKIN RETURNING EMULSION.
My favorite moisturizer of all time. This emulsion is a light weight moisturizer formulated with natural BHA and Centella extract which helps soothe & hydrate the skin, prevents breakouts while keeping the skin free from dead skin cells & excess sebum and Mattify the skin. It’s perfect for combination to oily skin & acne-prone skin. The main ingredients are Centella Aciatica leaf water 79.37% and Betaine Salicylate (BHA) 1%.
This moisturizer penetrates into the skin easily, the consistency is a bit runny. It restores skin moisture levels to normal and prevents further dehydration. I use this every morning and night before going to bed. Using this for over two weeks and my skin feels softer and more healthier. Oily skin/acne-prone skin ladies, you all need to have this.
I also bought this moisturizer from @beautyretailng for 10000 NGN. It’s totally worth the price.
● TRIO 💃🏾🌟
Using these three products together has made my skin “almost” perfect. My facial skin has improved so much and I’ve been getting more compliments & questions bout my skin and products I use. I’m thankful to @beautyretailng that convinced me to try out COSRX products, I love you ❤❤.
I haven’t had dermatitis for almost a month plus and I’m sure I’m not having that soon. I also don’t break out like before anymore, over two weeks now and no single breakout or blackheads. My skin is glowing and I purposely don’t wear makeup to work, just to flaunt my healthy and glowing skin 😁😁
I’m definitely going to try all COSRX products. I’m already having plans to get the Triple lightening Liquid serum, Snail mucin essence and more.
So there you have it, my basic skincare routine 💁. I hope y’all did enjoy this 💋💋
