Skin Care On The Go

Skin care routine when I'm traveling
I don't skim on my skin care ritual when I'm on the go for these reasons.

ONE // Most important one - Your skin deserves the best pampering, whether you're at home or not!  I won't compromise my skin health and if it means getting up a little earlier or staying up a littler later, I'll do it.

TWO // Not changing out your products too much will help normalize your skin. Plus, you don't want to be dealing with skin reaction when you're traveling!

THREE // Using the same products that you would at home is the best remedy for homesickness.  As much as I love traveling and seeing new places, I get homesick every now and then.  Seeing familiar things help ease that a little bit.

FOUR // Having a few options for those special treats (sheet masks, clay mask, eye-refreshers, etc) is like carrying a mini-first-aid kit with you in case your skin needs some extra attention in your new location.

I stick with my core products and bring full size or travel size depending on my destination

I know it looks like a lot in this photo, but my core ritual consists of only 8 steps with the rest on rotation depending on how my skin feels.  If I'm visiting home, I bring my full-size since I don't have to worry about multiple transit points or the need to do carry-on only.  If I'm traveling to destinations, then I bring travel-size.

The white triangle includes my 8 core steps.  1.   Pre-Cleanse // Tatcha Pure Camellia Cleansing Oil 2.  Cleanse // Fresh Soy Cleanser (Not Shown) 3.  Tone // SK-II Facial Treatment Essence (Transferred to a travel-size spray bottle) 4.  Treat Specific Needs // Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster (for brightening) 5.  Treat Specific Needs // Clarins Double Serum (for anti-aging) 6.  Treat Specific Needs // Clinique Pep-Start (eye cream) 7.  Moisturize // Clarins Multi-Active Moisturizer (day and night)   8.  Apply Sun Protection // Tatcha Silken Pore-Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35   
The yellow triangle includes special treats on rotation.  1.   Hydrating // GlamGlow Thirstymud Hydrating Treatment (use as overnight leave-on sleeping mask) 2.  Firming // GlamGlow Gravitymud Firming Treatment + Dr. Jart+ Firming Solution Sheet Mask 3.  Brightening // Fresh Peony Brightening Night Treatment Mask (leave-on) + SkinFood Blanc Pearl Caviar Cream Mask Sheet 4.  Eye Treatment // GlamGlow Brightmud Eye Treatment + Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist 24 Eye Mask + DHC Revitalizing Moisture Strips for Eyes. 5.  Pore-Clearing // Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Dr. Jart+ Dermask Micro Jet Brightening Solution Mask

Reviewing Dr. Jart+ Dermask Micro Brightening Solution Mask


Dedicating this post to my fellow beauty lover on Instagram, @carouselmakeup.  Thank you for your beautiful IG feeds and for "enabling" me to even more beauty goodness!

Sheet-Masking with Dr.Jart+


FIT // I have a large head and it still covers my entire face.

FABRIC // The fabric is of high quality and is super soft.  According to Sephora, it is "made of soft microfiber finer than a strand of hair".  Definitely feels good on the skin.

ESSENCE // The mask is drenched with essence and there’s quite a bit leftover inside the pack (which I used on my neck, chest & hands).  The texture of the essence is a semi-milky form that gets absorbed quickly once rubbed onto skin.  When I took off the mask after 20+ minutes (longer than instructed), it was still soaked with essence!

RESULT // Skin feels soft and moisturized.  I notice my skin is brighter, but I am not sure if I notice any dark spot improvement.  I don't really expect to see that particular result since, with any skin brightening products, it sometimes takes consistent long-term usage to really see the difference.

FINAL THOUGHT // This is worth the USD $9.00 (at Sephora) and probably as good as the slightly more expensive Shiseido White Lucent Power Brightening Mask, which I also saw a noticeable brighter complexion after each use.

Have you tried other Jr. Dart+ masks? What are your thoughts?
