As promised, here is my post on all my hydrators and oils for my PM skincare routine.
Step 4 - Hydrators and Oils
a) The Ordinary(TO) 100% Plant-Derived Squalane Oil
I purchased this together with my TO Retinoid as they said squalane oil is good to combine with retinoid. Probably this oil is the reason why i did not have any aggressive reaction towards my retinoid usage. This is a lightweight oil which has high absorption ability. It doesn't feel too oily once you apply on the skin. My flaky skin love this oil but i still haven't use it long enough for more review on my side. Here is the description of this product from The Ordinary website:
Squalane is a saturated and stable hydrocarbon that is found naturally in the skin. It has very high emollience, is an exceptional hydrator and can prevent ongoing loss of hydration that impairs dermal suppleness. Squalane is non-comedogenic and is suitable for use on all skin types. It can also be applied to hair to increase heat protection, add shine and reduce breakage potential.

b) First Aid Beauty(FAB) Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer
It is a lightweight moisturizer. I definitely can use this during day time. I apply this FAB on top of the squalane oil. After applying oil and acids ingredients all over your face, basic moisturizer is all you need:) its strong enough to hydrate my skin and doesnt break me out. I love this but i will still buy other moisturizer brand after i finish this one up :) No offence FAB :)

c)Embryolisse Concentrated Lait Cream
Ive been using this moisturizer before i purchased both TO squalane oil and FAB moisturizer. Finished the whole tube last month and will not repurchase this for awhile either. Not that i hate this, but i love to try many other good moisturizer out there. This is a medium to heavy weight moisturizer and good for all skin type especially dry skin peeps.From reviews that i read, most makeup artist love this on their clients. It goes on smoothly under the makeup and effective enough to cover flaky skin. It did not make my skin oily but it sure did not feel like wearing a gel moisturizer thou. Try it if you can get your hand on it :) No regret!
