You have requested for a review on budget friendly skincare. After trying out many brands, I can finally shared with you, Laneige. It is my favorite budget friendly skincare and is available at Target. Target only carry a small assortment, but they have some of their hero products.

Here are the products I purchased and my review:
Laneige 200 ml Multiple Forms Moisturizing Facial Skin Care Sets $29
Radiant skin at your fingertips. This 24-Hour Ultra Hydrating System features Laneige’s exclusive skin-perfecting Mineral Water. From deep-cleansing to intensive revitalization. This six piece, travel-size kit in its own zippered pouch includes:
– Multi Cleanser 30 ML / 1.0 FL. OZ. I find this cleanser too dry for my skin, but it’s truly a foaming cleanser.
– Power Essential Skin Toner 50 ML / 1.6 FL. OZ. This toner has a lotion texture and makes your skin very hydrated.
– Balancing Emulsion 50 ML / 1.6 FL. OZ. If you have oily skin, you will like it this one. This is a very light weight moisturizer without SPF so it can be used day or night.
– Water Bank Serum 30 ML / 1.0 FL. OZ. A serum for all skin types and for people with a dehydration concern.
– Water Bank Moisture Cream 20 ML / 0.6 FL. OZ. A moisturizer for normal to dry skin. There is no SPF so it can be used day or night.
– Water Sleeping Mask 20ML / 0.6 FL. OZ.
This is a overnight treatment and over the face cream. I LOVE this!
Overall, I love the travel set and for only $29 you can try 6 great products. After using these products, I purchased the Water Sleeping Mask $23 with 80ml.
This overnight Water Sleeping Mask Recharge dehydrates the skin overnight. Highly concentrated, ionized mineral water and ceramides delivers intensive doses of moisture to stressed and parched skin. Aromatic Sleepscent — orange flower, rose and sandalwood — relaxes and rejuvenates while apricot and chestnut extracts, brighten, and purify fatigued skin. The result: skin looks and feels radiant, refreshed. Wake up to soft, glowing skin with Water Sleeping Mask.
Wearing makeup is not just for only for women anymore. Many makeup brands are starting to carry men’s makeup. Let even skin complexions help build you’re confident, which will impact self esteem.
The best compliment you can get is “Your skin looks amazing. What skin care do you use? “ The worse compliment is “ Wow I like your foundation. What brand you are using now?” I am going to share my favorites products that will help you achieved a natural makeup for both men and women.
I like L’oreal Youth Code BB cream because the BB cream is very light (feels like a non-greasy, lightweight moisturizer), evens our my skin tone and provides a broad spectrum SPF 15. When you apply this BB Cream it melts into the skin and makes your skin look and feel more radiant, soft and hydrated. However, if you apply with your finger it will only offer low coverage. If you’re like me, I need more than low coverage so I use a sponge or beauty blender to apply the foundation and get more medium coverage. To get a more defined look, I often use two colors “Light and Medium” to created a super natural contour look (check out my YouTube video for demo) for $13.99 on Target online.
When I need complete coverage I also use the Laneige BB Cushion after the L’oreal Youth Code BB cream. It’s still a BB cream that’s also very light but in the compact form. For men, you’d have to see beyond the compact adn focus on the result. Laneige, offering a fuller coverage, is a Korean brand used to only be available at Korean markets but they are now available at Target!! BB Cushion is very unique with a SPF 50 broad spectrum protection. The liquid makeup is saturated in the sponge. See the image below. I recommend using the sponge and pressing on the skin for fuller coverage. You will be surprised how your skin looks after the makeup. So glowing with an even compexion! It will almost look like you have no makeup! The BB Cushion is only $34.00 on Target online, includes one refill.
I also use Chanel Les Beiges; this press power can be use alone or over the makeup. This press pwder gives a natural and translucent finish. The best part of this compact is that it comes with a mini brush for application. Chanel.com $57.50
