HOLY GRAIL SPF 🌞🌞🌞
Okay guys as I have said before I am guilty of rarely ever wearing sunscreen. I just never liked the feel of it on my skin. I always felt like it made me greasy & clogged my pores. However, once I heard about this product I was very intrigued. NIOD - Survival 30

The Ordinary VS. NIOD, Guess Who Wins?👑
NIOD is DECIEM's most high-end skincare line. Everyone should have heared about DECIEM's The Ordianry, which revolutionized the industry with generous ingredient lists and unbelievable cheap prices. NIOD is an even better and more effective skincare line compared with The Ordinary. I have dry skin that is sensitive to UV and chemical sunscreen, so I always use physical or mineral sunscreens. NIOD - Survival 30-$25.00 for 30ml It feels great to use👏It has a soft, lightweight and gray-white liquid texture. It makes your face look oily when first applied, but soon becomes natural after it's absorbed. It settles on the skin fast, and it improves skin tone and minimizes the appearance of pores. I will not use a foundation if I'm wearing sunscreen. In addition to providing UV resistance, it also fights pollution, blue light, and other environmental and lifestyle-related assaults. Besides, it also has an anti-oxidant effect on the skin. No makeup pigments are used in this product to correct skin tone and texture, so I use this as a makeup base and I won't use a makeup remover to remove my makeup alone to prevent secondary damage to the skin. ButThe Ordinary - Mineral UV Filters SPF 15 with Antioxidants- $10.95 for 50ml It leaves a white-gray layer on your skin. It's also sticky, greasy, and difficult to wash off.😭😭😭 It really took way too long to melt into my skin. Not good at blending and it left a weird blueish tint on my face. And it balls up when I add foundation to my sunscreen. Good price but I would rather pay a little more for one that doesn’t have a weird colour to it and have a better smell. I totally recommend NIOD if your budget allows.👍 Have you tried these two brands before? Let me know 🥰
I use this once a week on my face and armpits. My dark spots on my arm pits have definitely faded. My face at first broke out a lot on my chin but with consistent use all my minor pimples went down considerably. It is a bit messy and I used it straight with apple cider vinegar instead of water so the smell is atrocious.

TOP 3 luxury skincare brands？Worth the price or not？💰💰💰
Today, I'm recommending gel masks from two niche brands, naturaBissé - Stabilizing Cleansing Mask and EVIDENS DE BEAUTÉ - The special mask. Both masks can be very easily washed off, don't leave the skin sticky, and can visibly minimize the appearance of enlarged pores. I have combination-dry skin and really enlarged pores. Natura Bissé is a Spanish royal family-owned brand which was first launched in 1979. It has been the chosen skincare brand for the prestigious Oscars and, together with La Mer and La Prairie, it is one the world's top three luxury skincare brands. Containing zeatin, kaolin, tea tree oil, rosemary and other plant extract, this cleansing face mask can also be used as a facial cleanser. It has a lightweight texture, spreads easily, and has a pleasant scent which doesn't irritate. However, you have to spread it very quickly as it dries up pretty quickly, within 5 minutes on the skin. Gently rub it with water for 1 to 2 minutes, wash it off, then use a blackhead remover to gently remove any whiteheads and blackheads. My pores are visibly reduced every time I use this mask. The only thing I dislike about this face mask is that I need to immediately moisturize my skin after using it because of how dry it makes my skin feel. I wouldn't recommend it to those with dry or sensitive skin. EviDenS de Beauté The Special Mask: It has a light green lotion texture and it's cooling when applied on skin, so it's perfect for summer. It's suitable for both acne-prone and sensitive skin. I also like its light pleasant scent. After applying it for 30 minutes, gently rub and massage it for a bit. You can then wash it off easily and you'll find yourself with extremely smooth and soft skin! The best thing about it is its long-lasting effect and after continuing with my normal skincare routine, I still wake up with radiant skin! It's especially suitable for those who often stay up late or to be used as an SOS face mask!

The Infamous Indian Healing Clay
No matter your level of expertise, you have to have heard of this product. This clay mask is a highly rated favorite, all reviews from beauty media that I’ve seen, rate this product as 4 stars and nothing less! Naturally I’d have to try it for myself. This jar itself contains bentonite clay. The Instructions state that you can mix it with water or Apple cider vinegar (which is recommended). It’s important not to mix this with any metal utensils because it won’t work as well. The clay is meant to deep cleanse the pores, it can even be used as a hair mask, bath, and foot soak. When I use it, I use it with ACV and I try to do it once a week. I once tried twice a week, however, my skin felt very dry and tight afterwards. I try to keep it on for 10-20 minutes. The mixing of this mask is pretty easy but I always have trouble with the exact ratio of ACV and clay so sometimes I have more that I put on areas of my body that have acne. Application isn’t that bad either as long as you get the right consistency and apply the right amount. When washing this product off, I noticed that it has come off in tiny clumps, which can clog your drains so I recommend washing it with a wet washcloth or paper towel. The clumps can be very annoying to deal with if I’m honest. I noticed that my skin was softer and oil free after use. After using it regularly I did notice less acne and dark spots. However, a thick layer or using it too often can result in very dry skin! I love to use this mask, despite the issue of clumps. However, if you have sensitive skin, I think this might be too strong.

Will I purchase the full size?
ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex $72 (1oz) I’ve been using this night repair during my nightly routine for awhile now. I received a nice sample in a mini set that I picked up, and I’ve been really in love with this serum. The reason I love this product so much is because of what it does to my skin. Every morning when I wake up, I can feel the difference this serum has made on my face. I wake up feeling great and my face feels very soft and healthy, which is a great feeling and a greta way to start your day. I’ve also noticed that my acne breakouts haven’t been happening when I’m using this serum, which is nice because with other serums that I’ve used, I would get a acne breakout periodically. I think this product is definitely worth a try if you are prone to breakouts or acne. This serum comes in multiple sizes, along with a mini size, which makes it easier for people to get a small bottle to test the product out before committing to it. The standard size bottles are a bit expensive, but it’s definitely worth it. The results can be seen overnight and you do get what you pay for. I’ve also noticed that there’s a few mini sets and gift sets throughout the year that does include this serum as part of the set, which is a good way to get a sample to try. That’s how I was introduced to this serum, and I have no regrets whatsoever.

😱If you have large pores, you should give them a go! Trust me!👉👉
I always have problem dealing with my large pores that caused by the wrong way of cleaning blackheads when I was in the middle school. When I was 12-15, I have combination to oily skin with acne, and I just couldn’t stop using my nails to squeeze my nose and get the blackhead out. However, that leaves really large pores on my nose and even skin around nose. I tried a lot of ways and here is how I clean my pores every week. The first tip is using cleansing mask and hydrating mask after cleaning. Choose a cleansing product that suits your skin type is very important. I used to have combination skin when I was in college, and I would use a mud mask such as the Supermud Activated Charcoal Treatment Mask from GLAMGLOW and theKiehl's - Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. They can both draw out pore-clogging impurities like oil, dirt and toxins. However, they can be a little dry for dry skin, and I recommend only use them once a week. Right now, I usually use a gentle face exfoliator after shower so that the oil and dead skin cells will not gather in pores. Then I will use a hydrating mask to cool my face down and shrink pores. The next tip is to moisturize and try products containing retinol or VC. Some of my friends who have oily skin don’t like using moisturizer. But I learned that no matter you have oily or dry skin, moisturizer is the most important step of skincare routine because skin needs to stay neutral. There are lots of oil-free moisturizer in the market, and Hyaluronic acids is also effective for hydration. Products with VC (use in the morning and use sunscreen after) and with retinol (use at night) can increase cell turnover and unclog pores. I know that enlarged pores can’t be shrunk, but you can still try not to make them larger. Cleansing and moisturizing are the key points, and other helpful ingredients are for long-term results. So be patient, and never squeeze blackhead or acne using hands.

The Importance of Finding Your Skin ConfidenceCherie creator @Chardeny shares how she found confidence through her skincare journey.Feb. 4
My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.4 DAYS AGO
