I didn't use skincare for a month, here's what happened!

Tuesday, 17 December 2019


If you think you can survive without skincare, think again. I've been using IDS Skincare for 6 years and it's the only brand that my skin wouldn't get "immune" to and it stays effective! I keep my skin quite exclusive to IDS and have been rejecting sponsorships from other skincare brands cause I have extremely sensitive skin. So yes, I only use mainly IDS Skincare products for now. But cause they don't add frangrance their products, my hubby didn't like how they smell. He didn't believe skincare is compulsory and so... after I got married, I went 2 months without skincare and my skin totally went crazy.
