Before trying Savor Beauty's skin care line, I never had a specific moisturizing regimen, but in general, I used a serum and a moisturizer every morning and night. Given what others have said about my skin, I thought I had really healthy, dewy skin. That was until I visited an esthetician, who told me that I had dry, sensitive skin, milia, and dermatitis. Before this encounter, I had never heard of milia but at last, I could put a name to these small white cysts under my eyes that never seemed to go away.
Here's where this skin care routine comes in! I randomly attended a Korean beauty class, and by the end of it, I learned that I could take better care of my face in four steps (instead of the intimidating, highly popularized 10-step routine). After consulting with a few estheticians, I learned that I was getting cysts because I wasn't exfoliating enough, and just using a cleanser wasn't going to cut it. This line of products includes coconut jasmine makeup remover (step 0), pearl exfoliating cleanser (step 1), lavender toner (step 2), carrot rose retin oil (step 3), and truffle moisturizer (step 4). While I know none of this is revolutionary and most people probably follow a routine similar to this, I love using this line of products because it's easy to follow and smells like a literal spa.
The cleanser is a pearl exfoliating cream with rosewater and it feels like therapy on my face. It instantly relaxes my entire body and I'm pretty sure most of that has to do with the way it smells. The lavender toner is also a gift from the nature gods and I wish I had a human-sized bottle of it to spray onto my entire body every morning. I know that the number of skin care products in stores can be overwhelming, so if you're unsure of where to start and you want something that actually works, this line is the answer. Already, after a month of using them, my milia has disappeared and my moisture level, measured by Sephora's moisture meter, is apparently an 87 out of 100. YES, I fucking glow now. —Christina Lan
