I use the pad to target my oily t-zone after cleansing as it helps to minimize my blackheads and potential pimples as it get rids of excess sebum for me. He uses it for calming down acne and redness and what he loves most about it is how clean it leaves his skin feeling with such a simple application.

Why we love it: This fragrance free moisturiser is a favourite of ours because of it’s simple ingredient list that is suitable for all skin types. We both love using it as a daily moisturiser that helps even out skin tones and keeps skin feeling hydrated without having to add on extra products.

It keeps our skin in control when we have sudden bouts of inflammation and has no greasy effect even when used in warm environments like Singapore.

Khiel's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque

When you're feeling a breakout about to happen, tap a bit on it and this will help with the inflammation. The fact that this particular masque has a very neutral smell and feel makes it ideal for the evening where you would both be masking in front of Netflix. What's more, the price of this is technically divided by 2, as you and your partner would both surely reach for it again and again.
