I’m talking Baby, like face 👶🏻🧠
Hey beauties! I needed to share my feedback about these SkinCeuticals products because I am beyond impressed by the quality and results. The products are pricey but they are well worth it. Consider your skin an investment and spending the money will only help preserve and grow your investment. It’s like your own personal company you get to look at everyday! SkinCeuticals’ products are a MUST to have in your skincare collection. Not only have I struggled with hyperpigmentation ever since I began incorporating birth control into my life I used to WORSHIP the sun and tanning beds! (so glad I’m out of the Jersey shore baked look days, lol) don’t get me wrong I love a nice glow when Im feeling pale which is why I use St. Tropez Self Bronzing Foam ( I will post before and after pictures and blog about that for you guys interested in a sunless tanner that gives a natural appearance, Oompa Loompa skin is not welcome around here!) So anyhow, I began researching skin care companies that were backed by science since who doesn’t like a formula calculated to perfect your skin concerns! Tip: Since SkinCeuticals is backed by science the company invests directly into your skin, there is no aroma, it is fragrance free, if you want something that smells good spray some perfume on you, fragrance free is the way to be! Here’s the products I LOVE: For Hyperpigmentation, melasma, or discoloration concerns: CE Ferulic Serum - this serum provides the skin with a bright plump hydrated appearance. lightweight product, Phyto+- lifts darkened pigment, plumps dull skin PhloretinCF- lifts darkened pigment For hydrating/plumping skin: A.G.E Moisturizer- hydrates skin beyond belief ( I’m not a water drinker and feel like spongebob everyday so I NEED a product that keeps my skin full of moisture) Anti-aging PM- 0.5 Retinol : START SLOW FIRST , less is more as mies van der rohe would say, quick and effective skin cell turn over , repairs dead skin cells and helps new and healthy skin grow faster. I suggest about a pea size of this and use 1-2x a week first then everyday after your skin has adjusted. Retinol makes the skin VERY sensitive to light so PLEASE use an spf 50! Face wash- Skinceuticals gentle cleanser , the name says it al, it’s a gentle combination yet gets the job done

I Discovered a Gem! 💎
I was looking through random serums at TJ Max and discovered this facial oil with Retinol and Blue Tansy as the star Ingredients! 😍 The Blue Tansy caught my eye, because it's not a very common ingredient, especially in cheap skin care. But it's a good one! And for only $5.99, it was a deal I couldn't pass up! Ingredients: 🏵 The FIRST ingredient is Safflower Seed Oil. This is a non-comogodenic oil that can actually be beneficial to unclogging your pores if continued use. This also has amazing anti-inflammatory properties, and it's an antioxidant. 🌼 The second is Vitamin E Oil. Vitamin E oil moisturizes and conditions the skin. It adds a healthy glow to the skin. It's also known to help reduce wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. This is also non-comegodenic, but it depends on the skin. 💙 Next up is Blue Tansy Leaf Oil. Blue tansy does wonders for redness, inflammation and acne. It has antioxidant properties as well. It's often used to calm irritated skin, and has amazing abilities to kill acne-causing bacteria, and clear pores. It's one of the best oils for acne prone skin. You don't find it much, and if you do, it's typically on the expensive side. I really want to try the HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy Mask which also has blue tansy and has raving reviews! 🥜 The fourth ingredient is Jajoba Seed Oil. This is yet another oil packed with antioxidants and moisturizing & soothing properties. It's also antibacterial. It works in controlling sebum production, and is known to speed up wound healing & damaged skin. This is also rated as a non-comegodenic oil. 🧬 The last ingredient is Retinyl Palmitate. It's a combination of pure retinol and the fatty acid, palmitic acid. It's shown to be an effective antioxidant. This targets fine lines and wrinkles, and helps promote cell turnover & exfoliation. My Thoughts? Overall I really like this oil, and it's suitable for my acne-prone skin. The ingredient list is top notch with no BS ingredients. It moisturizes my skin and absorbs well. It doesn't feel greasy after like 5-10 minutes. I use it at night and then wake up with a smooth and even complexion. With consistent use, I think it would be really beneficial. I also love the blue color of the oil. It's so fun! 😄 You can find it online, and it's commonly at TJ Max, Ross or Marshall's!
HERBIVORE-Blue Tansy Mask
Retinol that has changed my skin!
Retinol, the magic behind brighter, clearer & smoother skin!👏🏽 I started using this retinol 2 months ago and my face has since been blessed. Lol but really, i can see a huge difference in my face, my redness decreased and my face has brightened up and it’s just smoother overall. I ran across this by accident, I had run out of my ordinary .5% retinol with squalene and it was completely out of stock and was kind of indifferent if my skin could handle a much larger percentage of retinol so I did some research and found this beauty on amazon for only $20. A lot of other retinols I had seen were well above that. So I took the chance and honestly glad I did! It also has small bead like texture that gives you just the slightest physical exfoliation.💆🏻♀️ It works wonders! ((The ONLY downside is that it does have a slight funny smell to it when you first put it on since it’s “fragrance free”)) 💛Retinol - the “holy grail” of skincare, skin renewal and enhance collagen production (& so much more) 💛Hyaluronic acid - to obtain moisture, & reduce fine lines 💛vitamin E - helps with redness/inflammation 💛$20 on amazon, so right to your door!
