Brand I Love: Sunday Riley

Sunday Riley is one of those brands that I have a special relationship/bond with. When my skin was at its worst with acnes & cystic acnes, Sunday Riley’s products helped me get through that period when I could not see the end of it myself. And even though now I only have occasional breakouts, I still use its products on a daily basis to keep my face clear as well as for its anti-aging effects. I just cannot stop using them (like my skincare safety blanket… )!

If you are suffering from acne as well, these products from Sunday Riley will definitely worth you trying. Its lines of products are just no BS & high-performance. Add your own eye cream, then together they make the perfect night-time routine.

Ceramic Slip Cleanser

When you first use it, you might feel like it’s doing nothing because it’s not your typical foamy stripping cleanser, but as you keep using it, you will be amazed at how clean your pores become over time. This cleanser has two kinds of clays in it, so it can go deep into your pore and remove any dirt and excess oil. And the addition of Neroli essential oil balance out the stripping nature of clay and really calms and soothe your skin.

The way I use it is to apply two pumps of product onto my face, and foam it up with the Foreo. This combination makes my skin refreshed and clean every night.

Good Genes Treatment

When you first use it, you might feel like it’s doing nothing because it’s not your typical foamy stripping cleanser, but as you keep using it, you will be amazed at how clean your pores become over time. This cleanser has two kinds of clays in it, so it can go deep into your pore and remove any dirt and excess oil. And the addition of Neroli essential oil balance out the stripping nature of clay and really calms and soothe your skin.

It might skin a bit when applied and the lemongrass smell is quite strong. But the result is phenomenal.

Luna Sleeping Oil

This is not your typical moisturizing oil. It performs like a serum in the form of oil; so even though it has retinol in it, it is not as harsh on the skin as other retinol serums. The oil was intended for anti-aging and reducing wrinkles, but I found it to be really helpful in reducing redness, hyperpigmentation and healing acne scarring. I put it on any spots that I have and pat it in right before moisturizer. (I have been trying a sample of the Sunday Riley tidal enzyme cream – really love it more reviews coming soon) The morning after, I always find my skin brighter and smoother, breakouts less angry.

If you never use Sunday Riley’s products before or want to get try more products from the brand. You can start with some amazing value sets available on Sephora.

Born and raised in China; went to to NYU for College and going to Columbia Business School for Marketing Degree this fall. I have worked in the beauty industry for a year after graduating from college. But my obsession with beauty starts since high school, when I suffered from acnes. That being said, I have tried out a lot of skincare products as well as makeup and I have a lot of opinions on them (also high standards). I hope this is the place you can visit from time to time to find beauty inspirations or just to kill time :)
