  • - Okay, I am not a pretty sight when I wash my face,

  • I look like a fish gasping for air or gasping for water.

  • They don't gasp for air, they're underwater,

  • gasping for water.

  • (upbeat music)

  • I am so excited to be able to show you my skincare routine,

  • because I am usually used to reacting to skincare routines.

  • I'm not used to showing other people my skincare routine

  • and especially because it's switching so often,

  • I feel like there's no sense of normalcy,

  • but now I'm excited to reveal it to you guys,

  • because so many of you have been asking and yeah,

  • this is just gonna be fun, I'm looking forward to it.

  • Also, I hope that you can appreciate that I'm wearing a robe

  • because it's low key 85 degrees,

  • and I'm actually pretty hot, but you know what?

  • I wanted to stick with wearing a robe

  • because it's a Go To Bed With Me.

  • I don't get this chance every day.

  • You are also joined with me in my room,

  • not in my bathroom because my bathroom

  • is the size of a shoe box

  • and I figured that you probably don't wanna be seeing

  • up my nostrils my entire skincare routine,

  • so we're here instead.

  • So I may have to run in and out out to wash my face.

  • I'm going to be using in total one, two, three, four, five,

  • six, seven, eight products with one skincare tool.

  • So nine products all together.

  • I'm really excited to go through them

  • because these are some new goodies that I found

  • that I haven't shared with many people.

  • So, first thing I do is I use a cleansing balm,

  • I'm specifically using the Then I Met You

  • Living Cleansing Balm.

  • I like this one because, well,

  • I like cleansing balms in general

  • because they're a great way of just dissolving the sunscreen

  • and excess oil and dirt buildup that has accumulated

  • throughout the day off of your skin.

  • Cleansing oils are nice, but sometimes they can be

  • a little bit messy, which is why I like cleansing balms.

  • But typically I don't go for a lot of cleansing balms

  • because they have an ingredient called polyethylene,

  • which is plastic.

  • And I kind of don't want to be putting plastic on my face

  • and having it go down the drain.

  • And this one is polyethylene free,

  • which is why I really like it.

  • So I usually just take a little bit,

  • there's some skincare ASMR.

  • This stuff is like a mango smoothie on the skin.

  • I love applying it because it applies so smoothly

  • and it's formulated with a lot of rich, hydrating oils

  • that are really great for nourishing the skin,

  • which I think is awesome because the cleansing system

  • can usually be a little bit stripping to the skin.

  • And a lot of people don't realize that cleansing

  • can be the most damaging part of the skincare routine

  • if we're not careful.

  • And I really like that this one is formulated

  • with so many oils to just really soften and nourish my skin.

  • It does have fragrance and anyone who watches my channel

  • knows that I do not like fragrance,

  • but I'm okay with it in a wash off treatment.

  • So in my wash off treatments is when I get to

  • splurge a little bit,

  • because it's not gonna be on my face very long.

  • It's gonna be on there for like a maximum of 30 seconds

  • before I rinse it off.

  • So I'm not really gonna see any sensitivities

  • or risks associated with fragrance.

  • I make sure to get on my under eye area.

  • So I don't forget there and just gently work it

  • into the skin everywhere.

  • I always used to think cleansing oils and cleansing balms

  • were for people who wore makeup every day,

  • but I actually think they should be used by everyone

  • because sunscreen is a tricky little thing

  • to get off your skin.

  • And especially with the amount of sunscreen I wear,

  • which is hint a lot, a lot every single day,

  • I'm like anal about making sure I avoid the sun

  • as much as possible.

  • The cleansing balm is definitely smart for me.

  • And then after I make sure I've gotten

  • every part of my skin,

  • I just rinse it off with water and then immediately go in

  • with my cleanser, which I just do all in one swoop.

  • My favorite cleanser,

  • the one that I have to use all the time,

  • otherwise my skin freaks out is the

  • Youth To The People, kale and green tea spinach cleanser.

  • This one, I don't know why my skin gets so upset

  • every time I discontinue using this from my routine,

  • I'll try to experiment with new cleansers and my skins like,

  • what the heck, bro, why did you do that?

  • So this one is a pretty integral part of my routine.

  • I also really like it because I have combination

  • to more oily skin and being that it is summer right now

  • and Hawaiian, it's very humid, of course.

  • I tend to be really, really oily.

  • So I need a cleanser that's going to deeply cleanse my skin,

  • get everything out of my pores

  • to make sure that they're not clogged,

  • they're not gonna accumulate dead skin cells

  • and dirt over time.

  • And this one does a great job of doing that.

  • But my skin doesn't feel overly stripped afterwards,

  • which is tricky to find because some cleansers

  • I find work so well that afterwards, my skin is like

  • (gasp) gasping for water.

  • It's like the Sahara Desert.

  • Again, so I'm gonna rinse off and start applying this.

  • So usually I take about a full pump

  • and it's just gently massage it into my skin.

  • Last time I did this on video,

  • my eyes ended up burning so badly

  • because I'm not used to having my eyes open

  • while cleansing my skin

  • and my eyes are very, very, very sensitive.

  • So I'm gonna be very careful, maybe close my eyes for this.

  • I found that sometimes this cleanser can be

  • a little bit too harsh during the winter time

  • because during the winter my skin tends to dry out

  • a lot more, especially in the cheek area.

  • It gets really, really dry.

  • And anytime I travel to the mainland, whew,

  • my skin gets so, so, so dry.

  • I actually used to struggle with eczema a lot.

  • Thankfully I don't anymore,

  • being in a more humid environment, but yeah,

  • this cleanser really only works

  • for when it's particularly humid

  • and my skin is being extra oily.

  • Okay, once I feel that my skin is clean enough,

  • I go over to the bathroom.

  • I'm still not opening my eyes

  • and this is gonna be a struggle trying to walk to the sink

  • to wash my face off.

  • But you know, I'm gonna do my best, wish me luck.

  • Wow, I made it over to the bathroom with my eyes closed

  • and I did not spill on my shirt, cha chow.

  • Don't always win that battle, but today I did, I guess, woo.

  • Also if you notice that my skin is a little bit red,

  • I have reactive skin, I don't have sensitive skin.

  • My skin can actually handle a lot of products,

  • ingredients, testing, et cetera, et cetera,

  • but it is reactive.

  • If the wind blows my skin's like inflammation instantly.

  • Next I go in with a new step that I haven't been using

  • for very long, it's the Isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner.

  • Now, normally I'm not a big toner person,

  • 'cause I don't really feel that they're necessary

  • to a skincare routine, but this product,

  • the first ingredient is green tea extract.

  • The first ingredient, and it's like super affordable

  • and normally products with that high of a concentration

  • of green tea, heck even less of a concentration of green tea

  • are super, super expensive.

  • So I was pleasantly surprised to find this.

  • And I also don't use a cotton pad.

  • I just put it in my palms and pat it into my skin.

  • You know, it's funny, my nighttime routine

  • was not always this complete.

  • I used to be extremely bad at doing a nighttime routine,

  • but once I figured out to put my nighttime skincare

  • right next to my bed and all have my cellar water there

  • to just like do my entire skincare routine

  • while laying down,

  • I slowly started getting into a nighttime skincare routine

  • until now, which I'm like fully addicted.

  • But for anyone out there who is struggling to keep up
