My 6 Steps of Morning Burst

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Hello, everyone! It's been awhile since I haven't posted anything... yet. I'm so sorry for the lateness because I've been really struggling coping up with the ass-kissing assignments and a bunch of test from Fall quarter. Now that Fall quarter has come to an end, I will start my winter by posting my morning skin care routine! Anyway, Merry belated Christmas for all of you who celebrate it! May all of you have a holy jolly Christmas :)

Back to the topic, my morning skincare routine isn't really that much as it seems and it doesn't take a lot of time to do at all. Well.. it's because I tend to wake up late almost every single morning, so I have to use my time wisely :]

So, here's 6 steps of morning burst:
1. Cetaphil daily facial cleanser
I assume all of you may have heard about this cleanser, right? When I moved to the US, I tried one other brand before I fell in love with this cleanser. That cleanser didn't work really good on my skin, and I ended up having breakouts everywhere. Then I decided to throw it, and I was searching for another cleanser. At first, I'm not really sure to try Cetaphil simply because that brand isn't really familiar in Indonesia. Last time I had checked before I came here, I think it was only available in AEON Mall near my home. And the price.. wasn't really friendly. But when I came here, and I saw Cetaphil cleanser at one of the supermarkets near my house, the price wasn't really bad, and my friend said it was a good cleanser. So, I decided to give it a try! And it turned out that this cleanser is fit to my skin. I didn't have any breakouts when using this, and it's not a harsh cleanser at all. It's really gentle, and it doesn't have any scent. And this is the first thing that I do in the morning after I brush my teeth, of course! :D

2. Lush Bubblegum lip scrub
After washing my face, I usually scrub my lips with Lush Bubblegum lip scrub. I really like how they made it really nice because the color is bright pink and it has a bubblegum scent! It also not a harsh scrub, it won't make your lips hurt or bleeding when you rub it too hard on your lips. It also successfully removes all of my dead skin cells on my lips every morning. And I kinda feel that after using this lip scrub, my lips are getting more 'pink' than before! What a nice lip scrub to use as your daily accompaniment. 

3. Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3
After I head out of the bathroom and going to my room, this is the first thing that I apply. This toner from Clinique is designed for a person who has an oily skin, which really fits me. One thing that I don't like about this toner is the scent. The scent is like an alcohol and it's really strong. Even though it won't stay on your face, you could really smell it when you apply it to your face. Other than that, this is a good toner. It also helps to remove all of the dirt from my face that didn't go when I wash my face! This benefit is my favorite of all time! It is just amazing how this toner really helps to clean my face. 

4. Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizing gel
This moisturizer is also designed for oily skin. I usually use this moisturizer in the morning and at night. This moisturizer is really easy to be absorbed! Right after when I apply it on my face, it just directly gets into my skin. It doesn't make me feel oily or look oily at all. But I would say that the formula is more like a lotion rather than a gel. And this moisturizer isn't really 'dramatically different' I would say.. because I don't notice any surprising different on my face when using this product. However, it managed to keep my oily skin moisturized without looking more oily! 

5. The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost Instant Smoother
I don't use this serum every morning; I usually use it 2 or 3 times a week. I love how this serum helps to make my face brighter and smoother! However, if you wanna use it, you should really be careful with the amount of the serum when you apply it on your face. Because if you apply slightly too much, it would only make your face look only and it wouldn't be comfortable at all. 

6. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly
Of course, all of you have heard about this famous petroleum jelly! I knew it. And I'm proudly saying that I am one of those people who fell in love with this product. I always use this petroleum jelly every morning and at night before going to bed. It's AMAZING! It moisturizes my lips really well. I used to suffer from a real bad chapped lips! Especially now that I'm going through Winter, my lips really need to be rescued. And this petroleum jelly is the answer to my suffering! It makes my lips feel smooth, soft and healthy. I really love the feeling when I wake up in the morning and feeling my lips as smooth as a baby's skin. No kidding. This Vaseline jelly is worth it!


  1. Vaseline petroleum jelly emang bener-bener holly grail! Aku suka banget sama ini karena multifungsi banget bisa dipake di bibir atau di bagian kulit kering yang lain :D

    1. bener banget! tapi kalo dikulit kering dibagian tubuh aku masih lebih demen pake bio oil soalnya lebih comfy aja ;D
