I’ve recently started using one of the emulsions in the picture; Kanebo Emulsion III Super Moist and I really love it. Although I have a bit of an issue with dehydrated skin from time to time and oil based products seem like the obvious go-to choice, this water based emulsion is definitely doing the work. The texture is super light and absorbs quickly, and hydrates like crazy! Honestly, I start off with 2-3 drops of Supermood Egoboost Moisture Kick Serum, then eye cream and then I add the emulsion. That’s it. I don’t need any other product on top (well, if I go out I use BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Gel (6.5) but that’s it)
The word emulsion can be confusing as there are so many names and terms in the beauty/skincare jungle, but simply put – an emulsion is water based which makes it less heavy than a cream. It’s suitable for people with dry skin as it is very hydrating, but works well with oily skin too (being water based). Emulsions are more lightweight than a moisturizer but still extremely hydrating to the skin, and it soothes dry patches while keeping sebum (oil) and acne in check. So, win-win for everyone 🙂
In the skincare routine, the Emulsion III Super Moist can be used to prep for other beauty products, but it’s all down to your skin type and what other products you use. In my routine I use; cleanser, toner, serum, eye cream and then the emulsion. I could add another cream but with this particular emulsion, it’s enough to hydrate.
