Introduction to Skipcare!


A little introduction to Skip-care, how does it work?


Late last year, I read about skip-care and how it is taking over the web. Skip-care is the skincare trend introduced last year, known to be the improvised version of the 12 step skincare regime. Basically, skip-care, as per Amore Pacific, is a skincare method that allows you to identify the essential ingredients for your skin and avoid the use of unnecessary products for a simpler, yet proper, skincare routine.

Skip-care is about investing on the products that works. The use of multi functional products are highly recommended in this method as well which is something I know millennials would agree with as it is very practical yet the purpose isn’t defeated. It is also somehow a detox for your skin without risking the benefits you get from your usual skincare routine.

Most of you know how much I love the 10-12 step skincare routine but on days that I’m knackered from work, I would just skip a few products from my usual regime especially at night time. This was the reason that pushed me to try skip-care for a month.



My usual skincare regime consists of the following:


  • Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water
  • Shiseido Senka Perfect Whip Cleanser
  • Neogen Real Cica Pad
  • Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
  • Cosrx Oil-Free Ultra-Moisturizing Lotion
  • Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream
  • Lucas Papaw Ointment (as lip balm)


  • Bifesta Cleansing Sheets
  • Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water
  • Cosrx Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser
  • Lip Scrub (at least twice to thrice a week)
  • Cosrx AHA/BHA Clarifying Treatment Toner
  • Cosrx AHA Whitehead Power Liquid (every other day)
  • Neogen Real Cica Pad (alternating with the Cosrx AHA Whitehead Power Liquid)
  • Face Sheet Mask (I usually do this twice or thrice a week)
  • Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
  • Cosrx Centella Blemish Ampule
  • Troiareuke Acsen Recovery Cream
  • Mizon Only One Eye Cream for Face
  • Cosrx Pimple Master Patch (for days when I’ve got spots or sometimes a medicated spot treatment in place of this)
  • Lucas Papaw Ointment (as lip mask)



Instead of buying new stuff, I decided to just use what I’ve got and deciding which products to skip was quite difficult for me. In the end, I chose those products which I swear by and have helped my skin a lot already.

My Skip-care regime:

  • Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water
  • Cosrx Salicylic Acid Daily Gentle Cleanser
  • Neogen Real Cica Pad (for toner & mild exfoliation)
  • Troiareuke Acsen Recovery Cream
  • Cosrx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream (for daytime)
  • Lucas Papaw Ointment (as lip mask/ lip balm)

There was no way I’m dropping the double cleanse. Most of you know how much I love me with some double cleanse, may it be daytime or night time. Creating this final list took me a week to finalize as I love all the products in my regular skincare regime but these are the products which made miracles to my skin. I would be tempted to use the Cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence from time to time and wear a face mask at least once or twice a week as I love some extra moisture and pampering.

I was able to appreciate the whole method and luckily, with the whole month that I’ve been following this, I didn’t have any bad breakouts or times I felt like my skin was a bit dry even with the cold and drying season.

I would totally recommend this for those who are very busy and tired to complete a 10 or more step skincare routine when they get home. Would I continue doing this? I think I would but with the addition of the Snail Essence and a good spot treatment, especially for that time of the month when those pesky spots appear.

Do you think this is something you would try or do?

Be pretty, be happy, be you! ~H
