I completely fell in love with skincare while in Korea. I learned how important it was to keep your skin healthy and how relaxing it could be to add some routine to your life. Unfortunately, during my travel adventures, I’ve gotten out of the habit of doing it, and I can tell. Fine lines are emerging under my eyes, my skin is parched and my face just doesn’t feel as healthy. Time to get back to it! But this time, instead of using Korean products (which are often expensive in Europe) I’m going to focus on using Mediterranean products. So let’s break it down!

Also, I made a quick video showing everything, if you prefer to watch it. Otherwise, read on 🙂

Morning Routine

Toner: Nikel Rose Tonic. Toners can be used for lot of different reason but I like to start off with an incredibly hydrating first layer. Since rose water is the main ingredient in this tonic, it works well–rose water is anti-bacterial which means it not only nourishes and hydrate my skin but also gives it a gentle cleans as well!

Serum: Probiotic Rosa Clean S.O.S. Face Serum. It has probiotics which help protect the skin, niacinamide which is a form of B3 which helps repair damaged cells and a very gentle fine line remover, and hyaluronic acid which is incredibly hydrating! Hyaluronic acid keeps your skin plump (aka wrinkle free) and radiant!

Day Cream: Absolute Organic Aloe Vera Day Cream. This cream is packed with oils, hyaluronic acid, and aloe vera, and it’s not greasy–perfect for under makeup!

Evening Routine

Cleanser: Apivita’s 3 in 1 Cleansing Milk with Chamomile and Honey. It’s filled with a variety of oils which help remove make up gently. It also smells great!

Toner: Nikes Rose Tonic. I apply the toner right after the cleanser.

Serum: Probiotic Rosal Clean S.O.S. Face Serum. I stick with the same toner and serum in the evening which keeps it simple. Ideally, I would love to add some variety to my evening and morning routine just because I think it’s fun but while traveling it’s good to have as little products to pack as possible.

Night Cream: Korres’ 48 Hour Moister Pro Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial Greek Yoghurt. It is a incredibly creamy, moisturizing formula. Like many women who have used it, I felt results overnight! Did you know that Greek yogurt is actually amazing for your skin, it makes a great base for a homemade mask! I don’t enjoy putting food on my face but I am excited to have this evening cream!

What’s your favorite products?

Having a good face routine can make such a different. After just a couple days of doing this my skin feels softer and healthier. I’m excited to keep doing more research about what products and ingredients are the best and would love to hear more about what you like in the comments! Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

  1. Jaqueline,
    Can a person find the Mediterranean skin care products here in the United States? I am very interested in these. If so, where can I find them here? I really love your videos and photos and adventures. My friend, Denise Meuer’s girl, Katie has taken your Adventures in Literature class. I admire your “Catholic” accomplishments at your age of 28/29 thereabouts. I know who your parents are, from church, but not personally. People told me when I was 30-sih that people are drawn to you, Judy, because of who you are, in the Lord. That was short-lived. (Missed vocation call to marriage in 1989.) However, I am so glad to see
    such young people from St. Paul’s and their good Catholic life. Many parents bear ‘good fruit’ – and because of your commitment to the Kitui project videos, I felt so drawn, I ended up giving about 80.00 to the water project.
    God bless you always – you are an inspiration and role model for many. I have no doubt, will continue to plant
    many seeds along the way of life!

    1. Hi Judy,

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful response! I am not sure where a person can find Mediterranean skin care products here in the states. I will have to make another video/post about products in the states:) Ever since my time in Korea, I have really enjoyed hunting for the best skincare products in whatever area I’m living in.

      I am so glad you loved sharing in my adventures! I have been so grateful for all the amazing experiences I’ve had so far. The Kitui partnership has also really changed my life, and I am so grateful for everyone’s generosity and community spirit; thank you for all your contributions and support!!

      I hope you have a beautiful day. God bless!
