2, SK-II: Facial Treatment Essence

5, Dermalogica: Sun Screen - Super Sensitive Faceblock spf30 (reviewed here)
6, Lunasol: Morning Wakening Massage N (bottom)
7, Aesop: B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel (top)
My Skin Condition:
A bit sensitive, combination type, and acne-prone skin.
Oily at T-zone with some blackheads around nose area.
Cheek area is normal but my skin is very thin and prone to reddish.
I'm using dermalogica special cleansing gel. I've been using this cleanser for more than 4 months, I did a review here before.
SK-II Facial Treatment Essence
It is a transparent watery serum, but I use it as a toner.
Normally I use cotton pad to apply toner, it helps to do a second cleansing as well as light peeling effect. But I apply this serum by my hands, because it is pricey and I don't want to waste too much on the cotton pad. On the other hand, it can absorb better with help of the hand temperature.
This so call "miracle water" contains more than 90% Pitera, which helps revitalize the skin's natural renewal cycle to its optimal condition for complete nutrient absorption. It also works to balance skin's pH and sebum secretion, I can feel my skin is well moisturized and less oily appearance on my T-zone area in the afternoon.
I should have tried this serum earlier, I love it and I have already stored up one more bottle.
