Best Skincare Of 2018 – What I’m Using In 2019 ✖ James Welsh


Hello everybody! Welcome back to my channel, where we talk about skincare, grooming. Today we’re gonna be talking
about hair so if that sounds like your thing, make sure you are subscribed. I have left this so late I feel like I’ve missed the boat. But today we’re gonna be talking about my favorite products
throughout 2018. And more importantly, products
I’m gonna be using a lot of or brands that I want to discover more of
throughout 2019. Obviously, all the products I use
in my videos I really, really like. But these are the ones
that I kinda wanna concentrate on as products that stood out for me. So let’s get into it. We’re gonna start off with a moisturizer. And this
is the NEOGEN Vita Duo Cream JOAN DAY JOAN NIGHT. This is of course, a collaboration
with YouTube Joan Kim. I have so much
I want to say about this. I actually recorded
an entire review video and then
I had a really bad allergic reaction to a shampoo. So I had to ditch the whole video– And the Cetaphil cleanser review video, actually, that I have to ditch as well. But to cut a very long story short, I love this. I love the packaging, I love the convenience and the fact that a youtuber
helped create such an amazing product with such an amazing brand
as well. So yes, it is a 2 in 1. Here you have the JOAN DAY cream
and the JOAN NIGHT cream. Speaks for itself as a day cream
and a night cream. The day cream is a beautifully nourishing,
surprisingly light mousse kind of textured cream that sinks really well
into the skin, even oily skin and has a really nice soothing factor
to it. In fact, I mentioned
I had an allergic reaction– The day cream really
helped soothe any irritation. And that is
because amongst many ingredients the green tea in there really,
really helps with that. Whilst the night cream
is surprisingly thick and nourishing despite being a gel moisturizer. And I love this
because you can kind of layer up the gel moisturizer to get your almost like desired amount of nourishment
and moisture. The glow that the night cream
actually gives your face is so nice that I actually had to use it
as a day cream a couple of times. Because I wanted people
to see my face with a JOAN glow. Yeah, love it. Highly recommend it
and I’m looking forward to using this a lot more. Especially,
seeing how it works in summer. Next up, we have the COSRX
Clear Fit Master pimple patches. Now, whilst these aren’t my favorite out
of the two pimple patches from COSRX, I’m gonna be using these a hell
of a lot more than the others. So if you haven’t seen these
on my channel already, they are self-adhesive clear patches, that you pop on
like a popped spot or a new spot or an active spot and it clears out
all the gunk, it protects your spot,
it stops bacteria getting in and if you’re prone to scarring, it really helps prevent any scarring
from your spot. Left on overnight,
they take out all that gunk from your spot. You see
like all the pus and everything. Very, very satisfying. But I love these ones
because they are next to invisible. In fact, you can wear these out
in public and people don’t realize. I actually wore these in my last video
to see if anybody realized they were on my skin
and no one noticed or you just didn’t say anything. So I will be wearing these
throughout 2019 and no one will even know. Next up, we have everything
by KRAVE beauty. So I won’t talk about these
for that long because they have been
in every single video, I think I’ve recorded this year. But it’s not just the products, it’s the brand,
the whole ethos behind the brand. Of course,
the brains hired of Liah Yoo, I know that this cleanser
for me is one of the best cleansers I think I’ve ever used. and the cleanser
that keeps you hydrated and a chemical exfoliator that along
with COSRX Blackhead Power Liquid, has pretty much changed
my whole approach or my whole opinion on exfoliating. A lot of people have asked
how I get these because as you know,
they only ship to the US and Korea as well. And I’m obviously here in the UK. So whenever I want them, I have to awkwardly message
someone I know in America. Be like, “If I give you money,
can you ship them over?” So yes,
it takes a while to get them but it is worth it. It’s worth
that little bit of an extra cost. They last such a long time as well. So now I’m actually going
to be talking about a service, like a brand. So I’ve been using
this subscription service called a Mask Maven
for about three years, I think. And basically, what they are is,
it’s by Beauteque and it’s their subscription sheet mask service. So every month
I pay about $13 to receive about 10 sheet masks. And each month
they send a really, really good selection
of sheet masks, always with a theme as well. This one was kind of
like dairy or milk or something. I don’t know but I got those
like milk themed sheet masks. And this is really good, if you’re a bit overwhelmed
by the selection of sheet masks available in the market because there are tons. So many. So yeah, every month
I get a really, really good selection. I use them very often as well. So I need that kind of service
to keep me going. So yeah,
Beauteque’s Mask Maven, I’m not gonna be canceling
my subscription anytime soon. I’ll be using that all throughout 2019. Guys, let’s talk about eye cream. You know, I have a love-hate relationship
with eye cream. A lot of them claim
to perform miracles under your eyes and they just don’t do that. So I’ve always been on the lookout
for a noble kind of eye cream that just does the basic job
it’s supposed to do. And I was in Boots,
my local pharmacy recently and I saw CeraVe behind the till and I asked the lady,
if they had any more products of CeraVe because it was just a moisturizer. She was like, “We usually have an eye cream but it always sells out
the moment we get it in stock.” So okay. So I went home
ordered it on Amazon and here it is.
This is the CeraVe eye repair cream. I think it costs about £9 on Amazon, which is okay. So I actually
had to get this off their website. Because all the packaging
wasn’t in English, so I didn’t really know
a lot about the product. But it contains three essential serum eye
to kind of like nourish and replenish the skin
under the eyes and the natural barrier
under your eyes as well. As well as, hyaluronic acid
to help with all those fine lines and wrinkles and niacinamide as well to help soothe under the eyes. And what I love about this is,
it is just a good eye cream. We’ve been like, I think
I’ve been using it for a month now. I do notice a difference
under my eyes, well they’re not visibly lighter, I can see them getting
like a lot more– I was gonna say wholesome. A lot more puffier, not puffier. The skin under my eyes
looks a lot smoother, a lot less dead. I don’t have wrinkles obviously but I feel
like I’m taking their preventative step towards that. So yes, because I know eye creams
aren’t gonna help lighten the skin or lighten the dark circles
under my eyes, I’m really happy
that this is just doing its job and is probably the only eye cream, I’m gonna be using
for the rest of my life. Not gonna lie. Guys, let’s talk about hair. Something I don’t really talk
about on this channel anymore. I put my hair through so much
in 2018. I had a Brazilian Blowout
towards the beginning of the year, which I hated. It made my hair dead straight
and I couldn’t do anything with it. So I couldn’t record
any hair tutorial videos. And then I bleached my hair. I went from jet black
to paper white in a day. And whilst they did an amazing job, they took great care of my hair. They did warn me that this was pretty much going
to ruin my hair, specially, the ends of my hair
and it did. So naturally, I’ve been staying away
from hair styling tutorials and hair stuff. But they did kind of make me realize
that my forte and what I enjoy really is skincare. And I feel like I can talk
about it with confidence. And you know, you know
who to watch on YouTube, if you want good hair content. Not me! But now my hair is back to normal
and in very good condition. Very good condition,
if I do say so myself. Now is in decent condition. Throughout 2019, I’m not going
to be mucking around with it. I’m not putting it
through anything else. This year, I want my hair
to be as healthy as can be. And I want my hair line back. That’s not going to happen. So I’m keeping it simple and I’m using products I know I love. And I don’t know
why I ever stopped using these but I’m talking
about label.m’s products. And not just one in particular,
the whole range. They’re an amazing hair brand. This is like my cleanse, tone,
moisturize of hair care. My very, very basics. So we have label.m’s volume mousse, a nice lightweight mousse that gives you instant volume, very good hold, about the crunchy shine
of an 80’s mousse. Matt Paste is a styling paste obviously,
that I use for everything. From slicked back hair
to the tallest of quiffs, I love it as great all-rounder for me. And the hairspray
that I like to layer up, whilst I do have
an extra strong hold hairspray, I find that
if you use one quick layer of this, it gives you a nice natural hold. If you use three
it gives you a very strong hold. So one hairspray,
all types of levels of hold. So yeah, they really
are my favorite products of all time. Now let’s talk about products
that you’re going to be seeing a lot more of in 2018, it’s just really, really quickly, this is a mix of honourable mentions. Brands I’m excited about and brands I’m excited
to share with you going forward. We have the Groomed Man
Co Smooth Operator Moisturizer. Not just the moisturizer
but all their products are amazing. And I’m gonna be showing a lot more
of them. The products I used well,
pretty much the last three months of 2018
is the Ordinary’s Hyaluronic Acid. The NEOGEN essence
that I can’t seem to find everywhere because it was always out stock that’s how amazing it is. The I’m From Rice Toner that gives me like an instant boost of nourishment,
moisture and radiance. The whole of Wishtrend’s calming range. From their sheet masks to their moisturizers
to their serums. A new breed of product
that I’m excited to keep using. So this year, I really hope
to bring you a wide range of skincare related stuff. Hopefully, a bit more well informed skincare
as well. I’m super
into like research at the moment. You know,
I’ve always researched products videos, ingredients. But I’m kind of hoping
to take it to a new level this year. And there’s going to be a few more opportunities to get extra content from me on like a subscription basis. So thank you guys
for sticking with me throughout 2018. And to everyone that’s subscribed
this year as well thank you so much. I know people say it all the time but obviously, you guys, who kind
of allow me to do the job that I do today. You guys are paying my bills. You pay me. You are practically my boss. So I want to thank you
for all your support. All you guys
at comment on every video, I appreciate it so much. All you guys,
I chat to over on Instagram as well. Yeah, I just hope
that you’ll stick with me throughout 2019. I’ve got a lot of plans. I’ve got a lot of things
I want to do. That means,
we can kind of have a bit more of like a connection. I want to build a group. Like so many of you guys
are interested in skincare. And I want somewhere, where we can like just chat about it, like if you have questions. Rather than
just the YouTube comment section. But yeah, do let me know, if you’re gonna try out any
of these products. What your favorite products of 2019– Where are we? 2018 we’re at and what you’re looking forward
to using in 2019. But that is it for me now guys. I will see you next time.

  3. What’s your stand point on prescription strength retin a? I’m trying to get serious with it and work through the ‘peeling phase’ I’m in my 30s and led to believe it’s the most (other than spf) preventative step we can take! I’m an oily combo guy too

  4. I love being your boss and give you the permission to freely do your thing! You know… do whatever you want!!! 👍👍👍😁😁😁

  5. Pillow…❣️

    Thanks for being here. Thanks for being you.

    Wish you a very happy new year from the Holy Land, Israel.

  10. Love Neogen ( but mind out for SD alcohol they sneak it in now & again) COSRX, wanna try Liah's line, Make P:Rem, Purito and Manyo Factory with some Deciem thrown in for good measure! Look forward to more of your vids bro and a happy 2019 to you xoxo

  11. r u really an indian ? you don't look like them tho.
    also, why don't u use dermapen? not the brand, but the technique, vertical microneedling.

  12. I think you should try the SNAIL WHITE Skincare Brand from Thailand. It is popular in Asia such as Philippines. Their product contains snail filtrate as a main ingredient for moisturizing skin. It became popular for its healthy glowing effect in just a first wash. Take note, in just a first wash.

  13. Thank you so much for skincare related videos 😘🥰 btw, I just wanna ask what brand of serum that you’ll recommend for oily skin sensitive skin that in a humid weather? 🙏🏻💞 Thank you so much 🤗 & Sending love from Philippines 💖💘

  14. I always love your videos you feel like you're talking to a friend 🙂 Omg i'm looking for the neogen essence too! I got the missha first treatment one to try and i dont think my skin enjoys the fragrance so i went to restock on the neogen one again and…… nope its sold out again lol

  15. Hey James, when you do your daily face wash routine, do you wash off the product before putting on a new product, like which products should I wipe off before continuing? Thanks

  16. Love every video informative and interesting def gonna stock through 2019
    I know it’s a complete diff path but some natural skincare routines would be cool to c I spent a lot of time in India and whoa do they know how to turn a kitchen into a Derm lab

  17. Hey James, new subscriber here, I love you and your videos! I was wondering what steps you take to bring your skin back to normal if you get a bad reaction from a product?

  18. Okay, now, can any one tell all the ingredients I need to see and don't need to see when it comes to choosing skin care products. I have oily sensitive acne-prone skin… and also, I'm living in the Philipines, (just to know if the difference in weather can affect an ingredient's performance)..

  19. What products do you suggest to use for Day routine and night routine for someone with semi oily skin. Like in what order to use them for a daily routine all year long?

  20. Of course we will keep on tuning in your channel. Love it! It’s my favorite. Was surprised you didn’t mention Innisfree. You used to use the Green Tea product line, which is the main reason I purchased it. Anyway, thank you still because it’s currently helping my skin. 🙂

  21. Hey,….I have been following you from a long while…I used Korean product Innisfree Tea tree serum and volcanic mask but it wasnt worth it…Can you provide an alternative to it which are also available in India???
    Bdw ur last video for products from India was months or mayb years ago…can you make a video for best products available in India??? Also, do make a video on best sunscreens??? Another request is make a video for all skin types and not just oily although ur skin is also oily..but it would be favourable if you could cater to all skin types….Loads of love from India

  22. The joan day moisturizer cream combo is in my wishlist, heard loads of good things about this cream. The facial sheet mask subscription option is such a great idea!

  23. As a woman I live for a guy who loves good skincare..btw you talked about klairs cooling skincare, I think you would like Missha Super Aqua Ultra Waterful Control Emulsion, It also has a cooling effect as well imo very similar to klairs cooling range. My skin is like oily / combination and I really liked it as I feel it kinda soothes the skin and leaves this nice cooling effect. Also it is a tad bit cheaper than klairs.

  24. Try mizon snail repair eye cream, there's also a collagen one in drugstore, otherwise the Ginseng one from Origins. I've tried so many, finally settled on these. And for hair my holy grail has become and will always be HairOKreme by www.thenaturesown.com

  25. Try WildFerns Manuka Honey range. The night cream for combination skin is awesome. And the serum treatment essense too.

  26. no mention about your favorite sunscreen? I'm under isotretioinine so I need to use it all the time now without forget it. This treatment is so weird! I had to move from oily skin products to dry skin products. In one week my skin was already super dry and not oily at all.

  27. Hello buddy! watching you, I'm so inspired , careful taking different creams to your face, you really looks lovely with your porcelain skin.. ugghhhhh I'm still a guy even I give you a kiss 😙🤤 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  28. Do you use anything for scars? I've heard of Scarguard and was wondering if you've used it? Lmk if you have, its supposed to be good at flattening raised scars. I need something for my scar on my cheek 😩

  29. Damm… I want to try this cleanser and this moisturizing creme. My favourite product of 2018 is
    Klairs rich moist foaming cleanser.
    Klairs supple preparation toner.
    COSRX
    Aloe Soothing Sunscreen .

  30. James! Seeing your love for skincare, can you do a review on Belif's The true cream Moisturizing Bomb or The Aqua Bomb.

  31. Hi James, once a while, i think its good to review on what we take orally to reveal the good nice skin, inner side, supplement, rather than a bunch of good products..give it a shot james!

  32. Question James the skin care i havent seen them hear in usa i use the body shop & try diffrent skin care . 😐& diffrent product .

  33. Have you tried looking on soko glam? they have amazing products. i know the acwell licorice toner had did my skin wonders but i stopped using jt after i ran out 😭

  34. Thanks for making these videos, you make me more excited to take CARE OF MY SKIN! Like I had mentioned in the other video, I'm waiting on those bull dog products but I am interested in the NEOGEN x Joan Day + Night cream and CeraVe Eye Cream., anyways thanks again you're awesome!

  35. Hello, as for the eye cream I consider this a hack: I use the CeraVe PM moisturizing lotion. It is a very light lotion so it won't cause milia under the eyes and it just very nourishing and gentle! You get 3oz for about $11 and no need to pay $30 for a tiny amount of eye cream.

  36. hate to bring it to you but I have seen piles of those milk masks for 10 bucks on YesStyle (so 13$.. not a great deal!)… good to know they are good tho and I get it, this way u get to try different ones. Still this subscription services look to me like a form of skin care slavery… I dunno…

  37. I love the Cerave under eye cream, it really does its job. Another one I like is the Kiehl’s midnight recovery under eye cream, they are the only two I like and use daily.

  38. Also does anyone know a good haircare and hairstyle channel that I can trust as much as I trust James with skincare?

  39. You are such a sweet heart. I honestly didn’t think I would learn anything from you as you are a guy and I’m a girl but… you have proven me wrong. Your adorable and know your stuff. I’m so glad I found you. Enjoy watching your videos.
