Coveting: Skincare Products

To kick things into high gear, I figured that I would show the world what are a few things that I’m currently coveting. For many of you that do not know, I have very sensitive, dry skin. My siblings (I have two) have oily to normal skin, but for some reason I have very dry skin. No matter how many times in a day I moisturize, my skin will always find its way back to being dry. The problem with this is that my skin is prone to acne and scarring. Finding the best skincare products is key to rejuvenating my skin. I went through so many years testing out various products, but recently I’ve found ones that actually work me!

Clarisonic Mia 2 + Delicate Head: I was a bit reluctant to purchase such an expensive facial cleansing system, especially after all the hype. I don’t know how many times I’ve almost purchased these kinds of cleansing system after the one that Vanessa Hudgens was endorsing for Neutrogena (the Neutrogena Wave). I eventually caved in and purchased the Clarisonic Mia 2 via Amazon since it was sold out on their actual website including the delicate head for more sensitive skin like mine.

The cleansing system works like a charm! Even on days that I don’t wear makeup (which is almost always), I would use the Clarisonic Mia 2 just before taking a shower and rinse off the face wash in the shower. Now you’re probably wondering, “Okay so what face wash do you use then?”

Kiehl’s Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser: I haven’t tried the Philosophy facial cleanser (although I’m tempted with all the hype that has been going around), but I’m too loyal to Kiehl’s considering they have a specific category for people with dry skin. Although it’s a tad bit expensive, but I’m willing to invest in a product that actually works and benefits me. All I know is, the combination of both the Clarisonic Mia 2 and this Kiehl’s facial cleanser has left my skin soft, lighter, and acne free (minus hormonal week, if ya’ll get my drift).

That is all that I use! Crazy, right? As far as moisturizers go, I use the generic Aveeno Aloe Vera lotion that you can buy at Target. I have yet to find the perfect toner, too. Bare with me guys! I’m trying!

So what do you guys think? Are you sold on buying one? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks for reading and have a fabulous Monday!

The Birth of Within The Seams

Photos taken by Michelle (the ones of Michelle taken by Cing and Emily)

Hello and welcome to the birth of “Within The Seams,” brought to you by three fashion design students. Here we are going to blog about our whereabouts whether it be together or apart. Let’s start by introducing ourselves, but before we do that, shall we talk about what is going on in these photographs above?

Needing to buy fabric, the three of us decided to head over to Downtown Los Angeles and roam around the area looking for cheap accessories and affordable fabrics for the fashion show this upcoming June. After going through what seemed like endless parking issues, we managed to not only grab a bite (or drink) at Coffeebar, but we ended up scoring some amazing fabric over at Michael Levine’s Loft. We pushed our way through Santee Alley coming out successful with the jewelry that we needed and a few bags!

Now let’s get back to the introductions. The main photographer of this blog will be Michelle Huynh. You probably won’t see her often in photographs considering she’ll be the one taking the photos. She is also very awkward in front of cameras. You’ll have Cing Lun be our model and by model I mean she loves being the one in the photos, haha! Lastly, you’ll have Emily Siu who is the most fashionable out of the three (I mean she walked for 6 hours in those heels today…She’s nuts).

Our blog will take some time getting used to so bear with us as we transition it with links to our personal websites and what-have-you. I hope you enjoy reading about our day!
