5 star products in my morning routine


I’m not a morning person, at all, so I need all the help I can get to start my day right (you know, after I hit the snooze button 20 times). So today, I’m sharing 5 amazing products that are the stars of my morning routine!  My customized planner I try to write down my to-do’s the night before so that there are no surprises the next morning, and I can start tackling my tasks after breakfast. I’m currently using the monthly and weekly inserts from Sessa Vee and I love their minimal + elegant design. Definitely check them out for planner inserts and …

Great picks, love them! Especially your amazing planner. Mine looks nothing like yours, I kind of feel like running to the stationery store and buying lots of cure sticky notes ahah

Thank you Naya! Stationary stores are my weaknesses, I want to buy all the cute stickers and pens whenever I'm there! (≧▽≦)

I'm a very morning person, much more productive during mornings. But I also need a routine to get out of bed, if I don't have to do anything I'm like "nah..." lol Ever since I was in high school I can't live without a planner! I also use it like you say, write everything I need to do the following day at nights and start checking it out after breakfast. Dove makes amazing deodorants and most of them (I think all?) are aluminium free, which is also very nice. They also have some of the best scent for them, I loovee how they smell jaja

I totally agree, if there's nothing to motivate me that day it's hard to leave my warm bed, haha. Having a planner with all my tasks of the day ready definitely helps!

The Dove deodorant scents are lovely, though I think the one I have has aluminum. I'll have to check out their other ranges to see if some of them are aluminum free!

Ah, Dove. I love their deodorants. I use their dry sprays, though I might have to give this one a try!

So glad to hear that! I do like the refreshing feel of dry sprays, though sometimes I'm never sure if I've sprayed enough!

I've never tried Micellar Water, but I do wonder if Son & Park Beauty Water -- which I am currently using -- is the same as that . . . I may have to give that one a shot one day ^^

I saw that deodorant in the the store the other day. Was going to consider it :D Do you know if it leaves stain on the clothing? I am debating on this on and Lavanila because theirs is aluminum-free. I feel that aluminum-free deo doesn't irritate my skin as much!

I feel like the Son & Park Beauty Water is a fancier version of micellar water, since you can use it as a treatment essence and toner too! I do want to try that one day, I feel like it would make a fantastic AM cleanser :D

So far I haven't experienced any issues with staining, but I think they have an invisible variation in case you're worried. I'm always curious about how well aluminum-free antiperspirants work, especially since my sweat glands are quite active!

is it weird that i'm happy this post is sponsored by dove just because i use dove deodorant myself? Lol. we don't have the dove deodorant in stick form here though; there's only the roll-on version and i'm currently loving the original scent. dove's deodorant is probably the only one that works for me and my sensitive skin (i tried rexona and it sucks. i tried nivea's spray deodorant and it sucks too. plus, it makes my whole room smells like chemicals and just blergh no)

okay, double happiness because i spotted skinaqua right there and it's such an affordable, decent SPF! urgh, love that thing.

my must have morning products, huh... the only constant ones are my skincare regime LOL i switch between two cleansers though; either a hada labo foaming cleanser or the garnier pure active matcha face wash which is really good when i have acne (since it contains salicylic acid).

Haha, that's a good thing, it'd be awkward if you were anti-Dove :P It's weird because I don't see stick deodorants much in Asia, it's usually spray or roll-on types - I guess they're more refreshing for the warmer weather? The garner matcha face wash sounds lovely! I do love all things green tea :D
