BBcream, It'sSkin -

I wear light make up day-to-day and I don't like the heavy feel of foundation on my face. My snail-extract BB cream does great job for an everyday use. It's lightweight and breathable with natural medium coverage - enough to hide my redness and minor dark spots. If you have dry and sensitive skin like me you'll love it :) very comfortable to wear and gives your skin has a healthy glow after use. It comes in a single shade (light beige shade) - best for fair to medium skin tones. View here

exfoliator, Skinfood -

I'm using this black sugar mask pack once or twice a week while showering. It's one of my favorite, most effective face exfoliators I've used so far. It's a great pore cleanser, especially for the t-zone area that it's very problematic and breaks out easily. I love how my face feels clean, moisturized, and soft afterwards - and the smell is incredibly delicious :P It also does a great job getting rid of surface imperfections.   The only downside is I need to be careful not to rub my face too long with it as the sugar granules in this mask can be a bit...
