Skincare Empties & Repurchases • Skincare Favorites & Beauty Supplements


I don’t often get to show you guys my favorite products and i think it’s a little bit I’m sorry for a Lot of products that i Really Really Really Do Love so today i’m going to show you guys My skincare empties and some of them are Repurchase so let’s Begin Garnier Clearance Instead of Two and One Makeup remover This is by far the most gentle and the most effective Eye Makeup Remover That You’ll ever Come across if you’re someone like me who wears very stubborn and waterproof mascara In a daily basis and you don’t want to over tug and over rub or irritate that sensitive area This is going to be your best friend in fact it has been my best friend for the past i think 2 to 3 Years I’ve gone through probably 10 Bottles and i’m going to continue using this because it is not only affordable but it does the job so well. I only found this In Australia and UK so far and I couldn’t find it in the states but I will put the link down below where you can purchase it internationally. Another cleanser that I emptied out is “Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser” from COSRX.I know this is loved by a lot of you guys out there, especially if you do have oily to acne prone skin this seems to be a really perfect fit for your evening routine or morning routine. I used to really, really like this because I used to have you know way greasier, way oilier skin, but now that my skin is kind of back into balance it seems to be a little bit too drying on my skin so I kind of stopped using it but since it does have pHA technically speaking butyl salicylate inside and it does contain tea tree oil and other kinds of antibacterial ingredients, I started using this to wash my beauty blenders and wash my makeup brushes. It kills the germs and also removes all the makeup residue that’s left on the makeup brushes. For the skin, sadly I don’t think i’m going to repurchase this but it is a great, affordable cleanser. “Primera Miracle Seed Essence” is definitely something that I’ve repurchased over and over again for the last 4 years. I believe now that my skincare routine has become a lot more simplified, I don’t use this on a daily basis necessarily but since I started skipping my morning cleansing routine, I sometimes can’t be bothered to even wash my face with water even so what I do is I soak this “Primera Miracle Seed Essence” saturated in the cotton pad and then I swipe it gently all over my face. It hydrates the skin, It gets rid of all the excess sebum that you build/accumulated overnight Then I’m good to go! I love this product because it has more than 93% of lotus seed extract and lotus seed extract is really, really rich in amino acid. Amino acid is one of our natural moisturizing factor that your skin contains inside the skin and it contains one of my favorite ingredients… yes you guessed it, niacinamide and it has other things such as wisteria and hyaluronic acid. Overall, the ingredient list is really, really minimal, it’s really effective in brightening up your complexion and hydrating your skin, so I highly, highly recommend this. Another niacinamide containing product that I emptied out is “Paula’s Choice Niacinamide Booster 10% Formula”. Now, this comes in a very fluid, watery consistency. It only comes in 20mL, that’s the only thing that is stopping me from repurchasing because it is a lot I can use this up in probably two weeks if I use it every single day. The reason Why I love niacinamide so much is that it promotes the ceramide production and also collagen production as well so it naturally hydrates the skin and naturally plumps up the skin. It also minimizes the appearance of pores and it can also help diminishing your hyperpigmentation or dark spots. What I noticed with this product is that it did really effectively remove the redness or the blotchiness like uneven complexion. It does contain adaxial glucosamine which works synergistically with niacinamide to help in brightening your complexion and it also contains licorice root extract which is known to be a very, very effective brightening agent as well. Other than that, it has other skin replenishing and skin soothing ingredients This was my very first Paula’s Choice product so if you have any other recommendations from her range, definitely let me know in the comment box below. I also did empty out the “Niacinamide 10% and Zinc 1% Formula” from The Ordinary. It was wonderful, It is in fact one of my favorite products from The Ordinary range. It does help immensely in regulating your sebum production and I do feel like the zinc inside is working so, so effectively to a lot of oily skin people out there. However with this product as well, I wouldn’t say it did help at all in fading my hyperpigmentation or any kind of blotchiness or redness to be honest. I know a lot of you guys want me to compare The Ordinary products To a lot of… you know, a little bit more expensive skincare brands that contain the same active ingredient but often times it’s really not comparable because The Ordinary it just contains like that active ingredient and other ingredients inside is basically like solvent, whereas other skincare brands would put like skin replenishing ingredients, skin soothing ingredients that will help buffer out the irritation that may occur using that strength of active ingredients. I don’t know, it’s oftentimes really not comparable “Alpha Arbutin” is another product that I emptied out from The Ordinary range. It didn’t do anything for me at least so I felt like I was just applying this like hydrating serum to be honest. I mean, it does have hyaluronic acid which is nice but it didn’t really you know improve my skin tone or I didn’t really see any improvement in hyperpigmentation or discoloration or any blotchiness. I’m sorry the lighting had to change but anyways, the next product that I emptied out is Laneige Water Sleeping Mask” and I’ve digged this so much over the past few months. I emptied it out quite quickly because i really, really loved It and especially during the hotter month , your skin tends to give up hydration significantly because the transepidermal water loss happens, your skin tends to get dehydrated So fast and this is like the perfect product that really, really does the job in quenching back that lost hydration. This product is definitely formulated for those of you guys who have combination to oilier skin types it’s so lightweight, It’s non pore clogging and It doesn’t give you that crazy morning face when you wake up you know that happens to a lot of overnight or leave on products you do wake up with more plump skin because your skin did a perfect job in retaining the hydration product and I do also use this sometimes in the morning if I feel like my skin needs that kind of like quick, intense hydration rather than applying like a thickener, heavier moisturizer, this is something that I would apply for 10 to 15 minutes and then I wipe it off and then I would apply makeup and it just does the job. Without any surprise, I did empty out the “Elta MD UV Clear Broad-Spectrum SPF 46” I love it so much and you guys know how much I love it. I think I emptied out in probably two months when I emptied it out, I didn’t have a backup of this product so I was kind of you know testing out other SPF products That I had and my Skin Was Totally freaking out. I knew this was a good product and living without this product really made me realize how amazing Elta MD’s SPF is because Other SPF made my skin flush and made my skin red and tingle and kind of itchy and sometimes, I would get like whiteheads because my pores would get clogged. My skin was freaking out, I was freaking out and the moment that I got a backup, my skin came back to normal I’m not associated with Elta MD at all like sometimes I wish I am because I really do want a lifelong supply of this product. I take quite a bit of common nutrition supplements and products and at first when I came across HUM nutrition, I thought it was just like another generic you know supplement and when I read the interview of the founder and I think that’s always a good way to kind of find out about the entire product philosophy because it always tells you why they had to create what they’re doing right now. The founder of HUM Nutrition used to have really, really bad acne for years and years. He visited a lot of dermatologists he did everything that he could do topically but then he soon realized he was deficient and nutrients and also the hormonal imbalance and all that so he now really believe that beauty comes inside out which is true and which is something that I really relate to and that’s the only reason why I got into this strand. So I took daily cleanse, gut instinct, flattered me OMG. Ibelieve “Daily Cleanse” is one of the best-selling supplements that they have. It’s for clearing up the skin but how it works is basically detoxifying and also purifying the liver and your inside organs to have better skin. It’s working so far so amazingly and I really love it OMG is basically omega-3 and I love taking that as well but I do substitute with my cod liver oil supplements I take “Gut Instinct” because I sometimes do have kind of digestion problems and I also am interested in probiotics as well. Gut health is something that I’m highly interested in. “Flatter Me” was kind of okay kind of gimmicky but I don’t know if it really worked or not and HUM nutrition green beauty powder is something That you want to get if you hate the taste of Kale or hate the taste of you know green veggies. I mix a scoop of “Green Beauty Powder” to every drink that I have and a lot of my friends who hate like kale juices, they got into it because of me, and they’ve been thanking me ever since so I really, really love this. I think that’s it for now thank you guys so much for watching! If you’re not following my instagram yet, do follow me @aboutliahyoo. I try to upload a lot of interesting content there but you’ll be the judge ^^ Anyways, I’ll talk to you guys there and until we see each other, stay healthy and happy and I’ll see you guys soon! Bye!

  1. Ahhhhh I absolutely love tamanu oil too!!! I've been curious Liah, have you heard of African black soap? My cousins recommended it to me and said it worked wonders on her skin, what do you think? 👀

  2. Hi liah,

    I love all your videos so much and I can't wait for your skin care line!!! I have a request for a video: can you do reviews of the best of "american" skincare? I feel like there has to be some good american skin care products and I'm super interested in knowing your opinions on them!

  3. I absolutely loved this video;) your skin is absolutely beautiful and I love your positive attitude<3 thanks for the inspiration. have a beautiful day. love Alana

  4. liah can you please do a review on fenty beauty's foundation? i heard that its very lightweight and feels like skin but since im in korea i cant get my hands on it:( loved the video also!

  5. This is so good–you are so thorough and it helps a ton! Could I suggest that you either skip music altogether or just have something at a lower tone or perhaps just a different type of music as I find it distracting when I'm trying to follow every juicy bit of great info you supply♥

  6. 👋🏻 Liah, I've never really had a skin care routine so I decided to try it out with just the basics. I use the glossier jelly cleanser, soon yoon moisturizer, and the Elta md sunscreen but I've used the sunscreen 2x already and it looks greasy on me and gives me little bumps and white heads all over my cheeks and chin. I've left it out and just wear my cleanser and moisturizer and my face clears up. So its the sunscreen that's causing it. Could it be the niacinemide in it? Please answer🙏

  7. LOVE HUM vitamins – seriously life-changing for my skin and energy! The Gut Instinct Probiotic and Moody Bird are my favorites, thanks for sharing how important approaching beauty holistically is!

  9. Dear Liah, I'm currently trying to improve my hyperpigmentation on my face and stretch marks on my body. A friend recommended Bio-oil and I'd like to know what you think about that product

  10. Hi Liah, I came across your channel recently and it has been so helpful! I really want to change up my skincare routine after watching your videos (about how products advertised as anti-acne can be too drying), and I was wondering if it would be better to change the entire routine at once, or to gradually introduce new products?

  11. I love your channel! I would like to try some of the products you advise, but I live in Italy and it is hard to find them in Europe…

  12. Hey there, love your vids 🙂 Could you please make a video of (natural or not) face masks for post-acne pigmentation. Please🙏🏼

  13. 리아유님!요즘 만물상이라는 프로그램에서 만능 크림 만드는법이라고 소개한 건데 히알루론산 1%용액을 쓰고 있는 아무 수분크림에 3방울 정도 섞으면 고가의 화장품과 똑같다고 방송해서 요즘 좀 유명한 방법인 것 같던데 부작용은 없는지.괜찮은 방법인지 영상 올려 주세욤!!만약에 정말 괜찮은 방법이면 굳이 고가의 히알루론산 수분크림을 살 필요가 없어지잖아요ㅠㅠ♡

  17. Hi Liah, I found your channel a few days ago and I must tell You that your videos are so informative and great i feel much more educated now 🙂 I want to ask you something. I am currently searching for creams to repair my skin barrier and i was curious do you know anything about a korean brand 23 years old? I saw their cosmetics in Olive young and got interested.

  18. I have watched almost all your videos by now. Can u pls recommend any good AHA & BHA toner as I need both for my face. I know u use Benton BHA toner. pls reply… pls pls

  19. Your videos are like super entertaining skincare lectures! I just found your channel which contains so much info and I don't want to miss a bit but I can't take all of that information at once (so many new terms, names and tips) so Im just rewatching all of your videos back to back till I learn every word and become a skincare guru lol (highly unlikely)

    Anyways, thank you so much for all of the effort that goes into your videos and all the info sharing, I feel so much more knowledgeable^^

  20. Hi Liah and everyone, can anybody help me with how to get rid of tiny bumps on your face. Aloe vera, AHA BHA, I’ve tried everything but none of them works significantly and they keep coming back. HELP A BOI OUT

  21. I like your videos but the background noise/music is very distracting. Sometimes you have noise, sometimes music, both of which distract from what you are saying. Sometimes I am so distracted by the background noise/music that I can't follow what you are saying. Please get rid off all background music and try to eliminate the noise. Otherwise your videos are very informative.

  22. I've never heard of hum before but after looking them up it looks like it's worth a try! I feel like my body needs some healing from within! Can't wait to see my results! 🙂
    Thanks for the informative video! I always love your videos because of how in depth you go into the products! 🙂
    If anyone out there wants to give hum a try here's my code for $10 off! 🙂 13E310

  23. Liah,

    I heard that coconut oil and stuff related to it can be comedogenic. Does this mean every coconut-derived ingredient or just raw coconut oil? For example, is Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride more likely to be comedogenic than not?

  24. Does anyone have peeling issue while using Elta MD UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46? I love the ingredient of it. However, it peels on me. 🙁
    How you resolve this peeling issue? please share 🙂

  25. I have an acne prone sensitive skin yet oily T zone so i was wondering if cosrx snail mucin 96 essence would let me break out or help me deal with acne , breakouts and hyperpigmentation.

  29. I'm currently dealing with dry patches on my cheeks from over sun exposure, I've totally learned my lesson, sunblock will be my number 1 priority, however no matter what I use to moisturise the rough skin on my cheek never disappears! It's been 9 months! What can you recommend? Thank you

  30. I can see from your thumbnail that you tried Zinc Glycinate. I was thinking about taking zinc supplements for my acne since nothing seems to be working. What are your thoughts on the Zinc Glycinate from Now Foods?

  31. I thought my Ordinary Niacinamide was nice but not making a huge difference.. until I ran out. My redness and blotchiness came back, the closed comedones on my cheeks and chin acne breakouts as well…definetely repurchasing immediately, it's their best product.

  32. I really want to purchase the EltaMD sunscreen however I live in Australia. Does anyone know of any trusted sites that deliver EltaMD to Australia?

  33. @liahyoo I've been dealing with acne and acne marks, for the past few months, which is not very normal for me. I also have sensitive skin. I would just like to ask which would be a better cleanser, the salicylic one from cosrx, or the goodmorning variant? Thank you in advance for answering!!! I love your videos, and had been binge watching them lately.

  34. i tried the UltaMD sunscreen and it broke me out so bad. like, legit, my skin was red, bumbs appearing everywhere, my skin was so irritated. it was a bummer that it didn't work out for me and that thing is hella expensive here in Malaysia.

  35. I tested out two bottles of the ordinary alpha arbutin on the back of my hands. I have some sun spots starting to form on my hands. Nothing happened with the one bottle so I thought maybe it needed some more time to start working. Bought a 2nd bottle. Took me about 6 month of applying it daily and nothing happened. I didn't expect it to completely go away but I thought the sun spots would at least start to break down. Not too sure if I will by anything else from the ordinary.

  36. 코스알엑스 약산성 클렌저 저는 엄청 건조하고 피부장벽 무너지게 하더라고요 ㅠㅠㅠ리아유님도 겪으셨군요 아 남은거 브러쉬 세척할때 쓸걸 여드름엄청 나서 화나가지고 버렸는데 ㅜㅜ

  37. Yeeessss girl, and people were hating on tati and her halo beauty. Say it loud and proud! Beauty from the inside out 💪🏻💪🏻 I would love to see you review her halo beauty pills 😊

  38. i reallyy want to know what do you think about the natural pacific fresh herb origin. please answer meeee😂

  39. I found out about your channel last night and since then had been watching non stop😅 I'm happy you also use HUM nutrition because I've been using it since.. perhaps late 2015 and trying different products.

  40. I got excited because I've been looking for a good sleeping mask that my oily, acnenic skin could handle. I checked out the Laneige mask mentioned but I saw it has fragrance added-it looks like all of their products have synthetic fragrance. Super bummed!

  41. after watching several videos of yours I came to a conclusion that my skincare products contain almost everything good for you..in 2 tubes. one is called an acnogel and it has niacinamide, panthenol, aloe, glycerin, allantoin, butylene glycol, alanine, arginine.etc. main thing is that it is optimized with peptides. the acnomoist on the other hand is like the lotion/moisturiser with well..almost similar ingredients like the acnogel but has more on the emollients side

    But I'm not going to say it is the best product because there are like a few ingredients that ranked like a 3/4 on EWG but hey…it works for me..><"

  42. Gracias por la traducción! Tienes una suscriptora más! Un beso enorme desde España 🇪🇸😘😘😘😘😘

  43. hi liah! how do you use the laneige sleeping mask with the other skincare routines? also, i have been following you since 4+ years ago. thank you for your genuine suggestions all the time. i hope this never changes 🙂

  44. I know this video is like a year old and i'm not sure if anybody would see this comment but, can i use the cosrx cleanser at night instead of the morning? Because i also skip the morning cleansing like Liah

  45. Liah can you do more depth video about supplements? I think treating from inside is really really important but I do not know how to start 🙁

  46. Gi Liah, thank you for the great video. I have hard time to choose sunscreen and you recommend elta clear one. Can you please recommend something with slight tint? Or what do you use after sunscreen for ton up face a little bit??

  47. Your voice is so soothing I wish you would read full length beadtime stories, or even skin barrier literature I would listen to your podcast every day

  48. Hi I really want to like elta md sunscreen but it balls up 😢 Do you guys have any tips to prevent this ?
