Winter skincare products::CeraVE, Valmont... by Alexa

PREFACE: a good skincare is the skincare that works for you! People have different skin types, so my favorite product may not work for you!


Joise Maran Organic Argan Oil

Based on an average score of 4.5/5 from 2,520 reviewers (on, I decided to give this essential oil a try. It did not disappoint me. two drops definitely cover my face and neck. It is absorbed very quickly, and doesn't leave any greasy residuals. It also works on my hair. Great price, and ORGANIC.

Chantecaille Vital Essence with Arbutin

Another great product from Chantecaille! According to its official description, it is good for both face and eyes (so I use it as eye serum too, never get any reaction!). It is supposed to be an anti-aging product, containing retinol! I don't think any skincare can seriously reverse  AGE.... but let us make aging procedure slow down :). This serum leaves skin smooth, pumped and glossing! Not sticky, never blocked my pores.


Chantecaille Nano Gold Energizing Eye Cream

Very gentle eye cream! Good for my sensitive skin! Like I reviewed in my previous blog post, no eye cream can change or improve  the signs of age just in several months! In general, this eye cream is as good as those I tried from La Prairie. Gives enough moisture, and pumps skin around eye area.


CeraVE cream, lotion and cleanser

Cheap but great! This line is recommended by my dermatologist (same as how Michelle knew it). It is indeed GOOD, and I will say it is as good as La Mer. I recommended this product to many of my friends, and no complaints so far. Worth every penny.


Valmont Renewing Pack

I have been using this mask for 3 years. Usually I put it all over my face before bed and leaves it on for all night. The next morning, I can find my skin pumped and glossing! It is the star product from Valmont (personally, I don't like their other products), and receives good reviews. I like to use it when I don't have enough sleep.... that always happens to a mom with a full-time job.

Fresh Rose Face Mask

The star product from FRESH. I like to use it in the morning! Your makeup will be very easy after you use this mask! Leaves skin soft, moisturized and eliminates puffiness.


  1. Are you using CeraVE sunscreen? What do you put on face at night?

    Thank you.

  2. Hi Lin,
    I never tried. My doctor recommended Vanicream, which is indeed good.

  3. Thanks for your prompt reply. Do you use Vanicream spf 30?

  4. I had SPF60 for summer, and 35 now.
    I use serum + CeraVE for night :)

  5. Thanks for the sharing.
    Coincidently, I have been using CeraVe for the past half a year, recommended by my dermatologist too. Love it! I use it for face and body.
    I just ordered some Argan Oil online and will let you know how it works out for me.

  6. I have been using the Argan Oil for almost a month by now. I am using it as a replacement of La Mer cream, once in the morning and once before bed, face only. This oil is rich but not greasy, carries a little bit of nutty smell when applied, however goes away soon after. I am typically not good at telling any kind of subtle change on my face, but happy with how it moisterizes my facial skin, no irritation for my super sensitive skin. My first 1 oz bottle is half empty now and I am ordering a 2 oz bottle as we speak.

  7. Thank you Lucy for your feedback! Now I make up my mind to order it. Fabby readers are reliable. :-)

  8. Now there are so many beauty products are available in the market. The products which having less side effects will be prefer more than other. But you are having nice stuff.
