Testimonial of a recently converted

12:10 PM Moi Sanom 0 Comments

I recently started giving people one on one skin care consultations.
I try to adapt myself as much as possible to the persons situation when giving product recommendations, but since Asian products are my products of choice, they are the ones I end up recommending the most.
When I started talking to one of my first skin care victims about how the new routine was going for her, we thought that her experience might be interesting for you guys out there, who are considering taking the plunge.

I present to you Katrien, victim number one, she lives in Belgium and had her first consultation with me April 12th.
After 2 weeks of doing a Korean skin care routine
How did you hear about Asian skin care and what caught your attention?
I read about Asian skin care for the first time on your blog. 
After reading some posts on your blog, I googled some more info on the Korean skin care routine and I couldn’t believe the changes and results people were talking about. So I decided to give it a try but didn’t know where to start, that’s how I ended up consulting you. :)

What was your previous Beauty routine and why were you looking for a change?
My previous routine consisted of a gel cleanser, rosewater toner, a serum, eye cream and moisturizer.
I wanted a change because I simply felt that my old products weren’t working. 
My skin looked oily in some areas and dry in others while it still felt tight and dehydrated. 
Also last year I got some pigment spots after being in the sun and they keep coming back.  
The products that were prescribed and recommended to me by the dermatologists were too harsh or not working.

Did you feel like this consultation helped you in any way?
If it wasn’t for the consultation I would have ended up with all the wrong products. 
There are so many sites with hundreds of products and I made a list with stuff I wanted to buy.  
After the consultation I ended up ordering completely different products than the ones on my list. 
I tend to buy products for oily and blemished skin but thanks to the consultation I know those are wrong for my skin.

Where did you purchase the recommended products and how was your experience ordering online?
I’ve ordered from koreadepart.com, beautynetkorea.com and roseroseshop.com.  The ordering process went smoothly and I received my goodies way sooner than I thought I would. 
 Also I really enjoyed all the samples that came with my order.  
There were so many! Especially from beautynetkorea.  
A real treat! 
Thanks to the samples I found some more products I really like and that I’m going to try next.

What was the best case scenario you imagined would happen with your new routine?
I would have been happy with a good cleanser and moisturizer. I didn’t really have much faith in the brightening effects of the products.

What is your new routine and which is your favorite part?
In the morning I cleanse my face with the Etude House Milky You foam cleanser, followed by The Face Shop Arsainte Eco - Therapy Extreme Moisture tonic , the Benton Snail Bee High Content essence, Nuxe prodigieux eye cream (my regular brand), Nature Republic Bee Venom cream and sunscreen (Avene).

In the evening I use the Innisfree Apple Juicy cleansing oil to remove make up, then I use the same foam cleanser, tonic, the Its Skin Power 10 Formula LI Effector brightening essence, eye cream and Nature Republic Bee Venom cream.  Every other day I use the Tony Moly Intense Care Dual Effect sleeping pack.
It’s brightening and moisturizing.

New Routine
What were the biggest changes you noticed with the new products?
My skin feels much softer, my pores are a lot smaller and cleaner, overall my skin is more radiant and the brightening products really do brighten and make your skin tone more even. 
My skin feels moisturized without looking oily.
I had some fine dry lines under my eyes and they are disappearing too even though I’ve been using eye creams for years.

What are your top 3 favorite items you ordered and why?
Well the Benton snail bee high content essence was the first product that I introduced to my new skin care regime and I noticed results in my skin tone and pores straight away. It makes my skin look radiant.

Another one is the Innisfree apple juicy cleansing oil because it does such a great job of cleansing and it’s so soft and moisturizing.

The third one is the Tony Moly intense care dual effect sleeping pack because it makes my skin looks fresh, hydrated and awake when I wake up. It does wonders for my under eye dry lines.

I really like all the products I ordered. 

What do you plan to work on from now on in regards to your skin?
I’m going to continue using these products to achieve moisturized, radiant and bright skin. 
I already have a few new products on the list that I want to try. 
I’ll definitely keep my eye out for products with brightening effects.

"I love using Korean skin care"
 Any tips or tricks for other non or newly converted?
I’d say…definitely try a Korean skin care routine. 
It will change your life cause these products work miracles! 
However I would advise to definitely consult someone who knows more about these products and have a skin consultation.  
That way you can get the right products for your skin type.

And two more question which will be answered 2 months after starting the new Asian skin care routine, and a new after picture will be added too.

What is your routine like now 2 months after starting?
Have you noticed any more changes?

I will probably do a few more of these testimonials so you guys can see how much a skin care routine change, with or without Asian skin care, can make a difference on someone’s skin, even for the less cosmetically inclined.
