This post is based on individual skin type*
My Skin Concerns:
1.Redness and Brownish Acne Marks
2.Occasional breakouts Cheeks area
3.Oily Skin/Combination skin type which can go really dry when I'm exposed to long hours of air-conditioner
4. Sensitivity and inflammation around the eyes area
TO CURB AND FIGHT WITH THIS:
I read that hydration is the key to flawless and plump up skin. So this explains my craze over the number of skincare lotions or skin conditioners!
However, with this amount of Skin lotions my all time favourite that i would definitely go back to would be ALBION skin con+ hada labo+ Fancl lotion.
Nevertheless, today what i am going to share with you guys would be the ALBION SKIN CON! I love how the skin conditioner which is suitable for sensitive skin type and do you know that it is the no 1 best seller in japan since 1974. A long history, however, I find that not a lot of people know about this brand in Singapore. (Maybe its getting popular now, but its selling like hot pancakes in Japan and Taiwan) And how I got to know this brand?
I have been surfing YouTube and been convinced by one of the YouTube beauty girl: Gracetw1988, she recommended Albion Skin Care! And her skin glows anyway! After i got to know this brand, and i hearing that its coming to Singapore got me really excited. As the first time i tried, i seek help from friends who's going Taiwan or Japan to get it for me. Now, save the hassle, i can finally head to Takashimaya Singapore to get them. However, the downside of this is that it comes kind of pricey, so we cannot use it abuduntly. (Price165 ml at S$82 and 330 ml at S$140)
Steps to Albion Skincare:
1.Soften with Moist Exage Milk II (Normal skin type) (Sometimes i skip this, but the Albion counter lady keep telling me its a important step! *Naughty me, Maybe I'm just not used to have a milk type lotion being the first step. Not to worry, ill try to adapt to that, and we'll see if the full Albion skin care step works magic.
2. Albion Skin Conditioner *Favourite!
3. Treat it as a lotion mask if you have the time. (Leave on for 3-5 mins)
*Small tips, wet your cotton or face with any thermal spray that works for you.

My all time choice, as it really suits my acne prone skin. Unlike Sk2 which everyone swear by, given me breaks out. Albion skin con really gives assurance and definitely would be my holy grail product i would swear by!
Okay, Zero make up with tinted sunscreen on that day and my skin glows! Looking at how dewy it has given my skin. I'm super loving it. I can really see that it soothe the redness and its super comforting and cooling while applying on.
Days i had make up on was never so easy without Albion. Albion skin con really preps the skin so well for make up and no signs of flakey or dryness when putting on make up. Oil control as well, and i have no idea how it do it, but it really does!
Nevertheless, i have not tried out Albion other ranges, i think its really good too. Any suggestion and thoughts which really worked well for you feel free to comment. I really love to hear from you guys!
