100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

So I thought I would do a skin update. All the products I’ve been using have been tagged in the first photo. I’ve started this new regime a while back when my acne got really bad after I tried oil cleansing. And it’s been a long and difficult road since then and I noticed my skins needs have changed a little bit so I decided to update my routine. I have combination skin and the skin on my forehead is really dry and so is the area around my mouth but my nose and my cheeks are super oily. So I’ve decided to start usingThe Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5to help combat this as well as The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oilto further hydrate my skin. I also need a new sunscreen because I wasn’t a fan of the Neutrogena ultra sheer. The sunscreen would take a really long time to rub it in and if I got the sunscreen on my eyebrows or any of my hair it would turn white and flake, which wasn’t fun. So I’ve decided to try the Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30. I’ve also started icing my face recently and I’ve noticed that it helps reduce inflammation from acne. And I’ve also noticed that my facial features have become a little bit more defined but only when I ice my face consistently. While I don’t have much acne around my cheeks anymore, i’ve noticed that I keep getting acne in my upper lip area in the same spots. Although I still don’t know exactly what’s causing this acne I did read that certain toothpaste can contain sodium lauryl sulfate, which can clog pores if you get toothpaste on your skin. So I’ve become hyper aware of toothpaste getting on my skin when I brush my teeth now but I haven’t been paying attention long enough to notice a difference yet. And because of the consistent acne around my lips I have hyper pigmentation and that area is kind of getting dark now. I’m using vitamin C and Azelic acid to treat the hyper pigmentation but I’m not seeing results as fast as I would like. Does anyone know of a way to get faster results or how to treat it more effectively?

let’s talk neck care!
Neck and décolletage care! This type of skin care isn’t addressed as much, but it’s still an important step of skincare! I never really thought about it while I was addressing my face skin concerns, but I once read that it was good to bring your skincare products down to your neck, so I started doing that about 8 months ago. I think my neck lines are partly genetic, but they’re also due to how often I sit in bed staring at my phone, thus creating deeper lines on my neck. I wish I had a picture from 8 months ago, but my neck was pretty wrinkly, it had really deep horizontal neck lines that I couldn’t get rid of even if I stretched my neck. While I still have some horizontal lines on my neck, they’re certainly less visible than they were before. So what do I do exactly? I really don’t do much besides bring my toners, serums, sunscreen, and moisturizers down to my neck, and I massage it in in an upward direction. So with the product on my hands, I start to massage from the base of my neck up to my chin. I do this until I feel like the product has been absorbed. Massaging the product in an upward direction will help smooth the skin and prevent drooping. I certainly did not see results immediately. In fact, it took at least 6 months of doing this little massage every morning and night to see some change. I really just stuck to it and ended up doing it out of habit for many months, then one day I realized my neck looked much smoother than it was before. Here are some of the products I’ve been using on my neck (I usually use these on my face too): innisfree - Cica Toner with Bija Seed Oil innisfree - Green Tea Moisture-Balancing Toner CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Kate Somerville - Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil

getting off makeup and clear skin with rosacea!
okay... so I know I've posted this before, and Cherie is (devastatingly) closing down, but I thought I'd share one last post. This really works. one is a prescription and there are a couple items missing, so I'll add them to the pictures. Here is the order they say to put on skincare (as depicted) 1) makeup remover/wash (I use Queen Helene cold cream that I SWEAR by, sometimes BURT’S BEES - BURT‘S BEES Sensitive Facial Cleanser ) 2) Facewash/second face wash (I use DERMA•E - Sensitive Skin Cleanser and Joeseph anti Acne soap 10% sulfur) 3) Toner (I use THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner ) 4) Serums (I use a few... my prescription Amzeeq, mostly The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% , and DERMA•E - Blue Light Shield Concentrated Serum ) 5) Spot Treatments (Murad - Invisiscar Resurfacing Treatment , tea tree oil when needed) 6) Eye Cream (not pictured - DERMA•E - Firming DMAE Eye Lift Cream ) 7) Moisturizer (2 different kinds depending on how dry I am- pictured: Alba Botanica Aloe Green tea moisturizer, not pictured: skinfix - Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream ) 8) Retinol: Now, because I have rosacea, I use a retinol alternative. The best one for sensitive skin I found is The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion use at night only) 9) Face Oil: HEAR ME OUT: If you have oily skin, it's not the WORST thing to use an oil. As a matter of fact, it may work well. BEST ONE BY FAR IS ROSEHIP OIL. I can't tell you how amazing it is The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil , and JOSIE MARAN - Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment during the day) wear sunscreen during the day, and put it in place of retinol. I use Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen it's a great light moisturizer, too. And at night in the winter if it's super dry, I'll put petroleum jelly around the corners of my eyes and lips. The results don't lie, Cherie babes (: comment below I'd you know of a better eye cream.

Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines pt. 4
Hey ya’ll! In part 4 of Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines we’re reviewing @Raks and @juliachristine’s skincare routines. Starting with @Rakswho reached out to me via Cherie message because she started skincare about a year ago because of her upcoming wedding. She starts by cleansing with theThursday Plantation - Tea Tree Face Wash Foam which costs $8.99 for 5.1 fl oz. This cleanser is very basic. It has tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil. My issue is with the eucalyptus oil, which is a very irritating essential oil right up there with lemon oil and peppermint oil. If this doesn’t irritate your skin then it’s a great cleanser, but I can’t recommend it to those with sensitive skin. Then she goes in with 4 serums. First is thepura d'or - 20% Vitamin C Serum which costs $14.99 for 4 fl oz. This is a really good serum. It has aloe vera juice, glycerin, jojoba oil, and argan oil which are hydrating ingredients, and then it has hylaronic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C. I love it! Then she uses#The Ordinary - Nicinamide Serum[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $5.90 for 1 fl oz. We’ve talked a lot about this serum, it’s very good. Next is the#Tree Of Life - Hylaronic acid serum[products]#[TwoStars] which costs $10.95 for 1 fl oz. I don’t like this serum. It started off good with hylaronic acid, aloe vera juice, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, but it contains way too many Essential oils and irritating extracts. And her final serum is theSkinMedica - LYTERA 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum which costs $130.90 for 2 fl oz, which is very expensive. This is not worth the price. It has nicinamide and glycerin, and then some not very researched acids. I don’t recommend continuing use of this serum. Then to moisturize she goes in with theOLAY - Regenerist Regenerating Day Cream which costs $29.99 for 1.7 fl oz. I don’t like this moisturizer. Let’s start with some positives. It has nicinamide, glycerin, and Vitamin B3. Now it has a lot of bad ingredients also. It has Sodium Laureth Sulfate, which is a harsh cleansing agent, as well as fragrance being the 6th ingredient. The she uses a Neutrogena sunscreen, and occasionally usesThe Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which costs $7.20 for 1 fl oz. This is a great exfoliant. I think @Raks is using too many serums. I would stick to only the Pura D’or and The Ordinary serum, and ditch the other two. Keep the cleanser, and maybe try a different moisturizer. You asked for mineral sunscreen reccomendations for dark skin tones that don’t have a white cast, so I got you girl! I have light skin, but I did some research and I’d recommend the#First Aid Beauty - Weightless Mineral SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $34 for 1.5 fl oz, and the #Biossance - Squalane Zinc Sheer SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $30 for 1.7 fl oz. Both of these have minimal white cast, and Skincare by Hyram recommends them. Next is @juliachristine’s night routine. She starts off by cleansing with the #Vanicream - Unscented Gentle Cleanser[products]#[ThreeStars] witch costs $8.99 for 8 fl oz. This a nice basic cleanser with glycerin. Next she uses the#OBAGI - Tretinoin 0.025% Cream[products]#[TwoStars] which costs $84 for .7 fl oz. This cream has tretinoin which is a Vitamin A derivative which can treat acne, as well as retinol which also Vitamin A. I don’t think it’s worth the price, but it’s okay. Next she uses the #The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%[products]#[FourStars] which costs $7.99 for 1 fl oz. Along with azelaic acid, it has dimethicone which is a great moisturizer for dry skin. Next she uses theCeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin which costs $17.99 for 15 fl oz. Y’all know I love this product! Finally she finishes off with theVERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream witch costs $17.99 for .5 fl oz. Eye cream is definitely not necessary but this one is great! It has glycerin, algae extract, and olive oil which are hydrating, along with shea butter and a blend of peptides which can help firm the skin and increase collagen production which can help reduce fine lines around the eyes. Overall @juliachristine your routine looks great! That’s it for this post please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment your opinions on these products, and follow me for similar content. Upcoming posts include a 1 month Curology review and unnecessary skincare steps you don’t need. -Mae

Tour of what’s in my fridge
A skin care fridge is totally not a necessity but they are super fun to have. Things to consider before buying one is: does it fit in your budget, will it fit in your bathroom, what products will go in it? I got mine from Amazon where they range from $60-$150 cad but you can get them from tons of places. The way I use mine is to keep products cold for the experience (de puffing) and to extend their shelf life. Here’s a tour of what I currently keep in my skincare fridge. The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% This serum is great to keep cold as it ensures it is kept at a consistent temperature and in a dark place which helps with stability. The combination of ascorbic acid and alpha arbutin make for a great brightening and hyperpigmentation treatment. THE BODY SHOP - British Rose Fresh Plumping Mask This is a really nice hydrating and plumping face mask that gives a very spa like vibe. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil I love to keep this oil cold as it increases the shelf life. This is a great hydrating oil that also helps acne and hyperpigmentation. THE BODY SHOP - Chinese Ginseng & Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask I love keeping this mask chilled as it helps depuff my face in the morning. This is a very nourishing mask that is also gently brightening. pixi - DetoxifEYE These are great cold as they really helps get rid of any puffiness from waking up. This pot holds 30 pairs which is great value from money. VERSED - LOOK ALIVE Hydrating Plumping Mask This is a great hydrating mask that really plumps my skin and helps when it is dehydrated. Keeping it cold makes the experience even more enjoyable. LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping Mask This is a creamy sleeping mask that highlights cica which is a very soothing ingredient. Applying it cold makes the soothing power even more effective. LANEIGE - Lavender Water Sleeping Mask This is a gel mask that feels great when applied cold as it feels very soothing. The lavender scent can also be very relaxing. grace & stella - Rose quartz face roller I love doing an evening massage, it feels amazing if the tool is kept cold. It helps with lymphatic drainage and product absorption. 👜Sheet masks ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I love to keep all my sheet masks in the fridge as the experience of a chilled mask is very enjoyable.

🧼Rebuilding My Moisture Barrier💧🤍
It’s always a balancing act when it comes from skincare. 😅 at least for me! Haha 💧I’ve had adult acne and have acne-primed skin, so when it comes to finding the right products that don’t over-strip my skin but also keep my breakouts & acne under control...you could say it’s been a journey! 💧If you saw one of my recent posts about my retinol breakout 😪 I’m back to familiar territory aka flaky, dry, inflamed skin aka my moisture barrier is damaged. And with the colder months, I’ve been spending more time trying to repair it. 💧These are some of the products that have been helping me: 🧴COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence : I recently purchased this essence and have really loved the effects. I use it after cleansing and find that it helps when I use it when my skin is still damp! It’s made my skin so soft & since it’s an essence, it allows for my other products to penetrate deeper into my skin. I will say, for those who are not really familiar with essences (especially this one), many often have a gel-like texture that isn’t super typical in some products (slightly sticky & for this one, slimy). 🧴CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin : my tried and true!!! I’ve been layering this product on, especially at night after the essence. Day or night, this lotion is a must-have in my book. It doesn’t feel oily on my skin and the hyalauronic acid is such a bonus since this an ingredient that helps draw in moisture into the skin. 🧴Krave - The Beet Shield : WORTH THE HYPE! Love Krave Beauty and I LOVE the Beet Shield. The texture is amazing, super light and dried down pretty quickly without a white cast. It makes me WANT to put on sunscreen and not just feel like I NEED to. 〰️After cutting back on the steps in my routine, and feeling& seeing results, I’ve been reintroducing these products for gentler exfoliation!〰️ 🧼CLARISMA - Cali Dreaming Cream Daily Moisturizer : the Clarisma moisturizer is super light and something I’ll typically wear during the day. It’s gentle and I like to wear it on days I’m inside especially since it is a lighter moisturizer and when I’m outside in the cold, I prefer something heavier. 🧼CLARISMA - Malibu Blush Exfoliating Scrub : the most gentle exfoliator! The exfoliating scrub isn’t at all like other physical exfoliants. The Luffa fruit breaks down when you use it so no micro tears with this one. The enzymes used also provide such a gentler exfoliation unlike most harsh acids. It also doesn’t cause hyperpigmentation, which I’ve experienced in the past with acids. 🏹Let me know what’s helped you with repairing or protecting your moisture barrier! 🤍

UPDATE: I Quit Differin
This is a long overdue skincare update but I have quit Differin because it started to strip my skin barrier, and I kept breaking out even after applying the gel. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel -I’m about to run out of this cleanser and I’m thinking about replacing it with a more moisturizing cleanser from the same brand. This cleanser is excellent but I wish it was a bit more effective PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator -This has been a little too gentle on my skin so I wasn’t able to experience a huge difference after using this product The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA -This serum is gentle on my skin and I have noticed an improvement in my skin’s tone VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream -I came back to this moisturizer to give it a second chance and I’ve come to the conclusion that it is better for people with very oily skin and I have combination skin PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ -This product is a chef’s kiss. It is gentle, hydrating, and very effective at protecting your skin from the sun I am still breaking out but I’m not sure which route to take. I’ve been exfoliating quite a lot and I’m thinking about going the other path and restoring the hell out of my skin. Any recommendations to restore my skin’s barrier and to increase collagen as well as clearing out my pimples and acne scars would be much appreciated!

Help me 😭😭 PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ!!!
I have been on a journey with my skin this year. In my recent post you can see my skin was clear and nice and I was using Clean&Clear - CONTINUOUS CONTROL® Acne Cleanser and I rarely had break outs. Is it really that bad? I mean it kept my skin clear. I started using what they called better for skin like CeraVe - Salicylic Acid Facial Cleanser and then I switched to the hydrating one and still got break outs. Then I switched to LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Purifying Foaming Gel which claimed my skin down. Then it started getting bad again and I switched to YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Cleanser + Cream Youth Duo Mini last week and it’s okay I haven’t used it long enough to see if it works for me. But I need tips on if I should go back to my clean and clear or if Should just keep waiting. I haven’t been eating as healthy as I was so idk if that plays a factor. Someone please help because it’s really putting my confidence down . :((

The Best Advice For Choosing Skincare Products
Hey Beauty’s 🙋🏽‍♀️ So I’ve recommended a lot of products and thought I’d share some advice on how how I select skincare products these days. ☺️ Thanks to @babesandbeauty on Instagram for the advice. Products that you consistently use I noticed that I consistently use TruSkin - Vitamin C Serum which has Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and Vitamin E as my day Serum. I also have The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 for my night routine. I’ve started using Truskin’s Super Serum at night and now alternate between using a natural Retinol or Vitamin A Moisturiser and the Truskin Super Serum which has Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Niacinamide, and Retinol. I now can’t live without my FORMULA 10.0.6 - Rise of the Foam Blemish Busting Cleanser I use this because of the salicylic acid and hemp oil as part of my double cleansing routine. I’m currently trialing products for my first cleanse. 😄 I noticed the ingredients are ideal for my issues which are rough texture, larger than average pores, dullness and my wrinkles and fine lines. For reducing the appearance of my fine lines and wrinkles I ❤️ hyaluronic acid!!!! Products that are ideal for your skin type I’m a little lucky in the fact that I have combination skin and can use a range of products for my issues. Treating the wrong skin type can lead to irritated skin, breakouts and premature aging. Choosing the correct skin care routine for your skin type is essential for making your skin appear youthful and healthy. Products that do not cause irritation to your skin barrier Our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have. Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong. Using the proper skin care products for your skin type can help preserve this important protective layer. ☺️ Products that fit your budget and life The Ordinary creators have totally changed how we think about and buy skin care. Its allowed us to understand ingredients and offered them in ridiculously cheap formulas. It’s championed transparency in an industry that wants you to think expensive products are better. Nothing costs more than $20. In fact, the majority of it ranges at less than $10. This is largely in part thanks to The Ordinary's dedication to transparency, resulting in prices that aren't significantly marked up. Although if you can afford to spend $150 I’d recommend purchasing a Serum rather than a cleanser or moisturiser. Drop me a line about what you consider when you purchase skincare products. Is it the beautiful packaging, ingredient list or that you just saw a review and want to try it. ☺️ Have a wonderful day or evening Jade 🥂

When hydration is needed 💦
I am a dry skinned girl so I am always on the look out for hydrators and moisturizers. This is especially the case as I like to use actives in my routine and they can further dry out my skin. Hyaluronic acid is one of my go to ingredients as it draws moisture into my skin and it works well with other ingredients. The ordinary offers this serum which is great as it is super affordable and it works well with my skin. What is it: This is a hyaluronic acid serum with 3 different weighted molecules so that it can penetrate and hydrate different layers if the skin. Hyaluronic acids is a humectant meaning it absorbs moisture from the air and draws it into the skin. This serum also has b5 which helps nourish and soften the skin. Texture: This is a goopy and cloudy serum that is easily absorbed into my dry skin. Price: This sells at Sephora for $6.80 cad for 1 oz or $12.20 cad for 2oz How I use this: I use this along with my steamer to make sure that the air is moisture rich in order to draw moisture to my skin. This ensures I get the best result. Pros 👍: affordable 2 sizes available accessible effective cruelty free 🐰 Cons 👎: some people don’t like the texture you shouldn’t over use hyaluronic acid (check other products) The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 this is a super simple serum that has really helped my dry skin

Does Neutrogena spf makes your face "burn"?
Since I began using this product, I get this burning sensation on my face, especially around my eyes. it makes my eyes water through out the day. This is the only product that I changed in my routine so I think it's the problem. Has anyone experienced this too? Is it bad for the skin in the long-term? I plan on finishing it, I can handle the burns but if it affects the skin in the long run, I'll stop. One good thing about the product is that it leaves no white cast and this is the first sunscreen that I have used that doesn't do that so I can apply as much sunscreen as I should without the fear of looking like a ghost...just crying like I've seen one. Anyways, these are my concerns please let me know if you have experienced this too. 💗

quick post-workout skincare - it’s important!
As a D3 student-athlete (any fellow lax players on here??), weightlifting and working out is a huge part of my life, and since delving more into skincare, I’ve realized how important post-workout skincare is. Since we are in quarantine, I work out at home, but during normal times, I’d be in a gym with lots of other people’s sweat and germs all around me, and that’s just not fun for skin! A lot of the time I’ll have to wake up at 5:30am to do a morning lift, and often I’ll have to do a practice in the afternoon, and I’ve found that this routine works for any time of the day if I don’t have time to do a full wash-up right after. So here’s what I do to take care of my skin after a workout—whether that be at home, at a gym, or on the field! I typically start off by splashing my face with water and use a clean washcloth to gently tap my face dry. I wet the washcloth and wipe the sweat from my chest and back. Then, I go in with my GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water with Rose Water to clean off that sweat and dirt. Next, I use #BOBBI BROWN - Face Mist[products]#[FiveStars] to calm and hydrate. I’m running out of this face mist so I might consider making my own face mist or buy the J.R. WATKINS - Heritage Store Rosewater & Glycerin Spray because I’ve heard good things about it. Finally, I seal in the moisture with The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil . If the sun is still out, I will layer on a sunscreen because that is literally the most important step! I love dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ , although with the Purito controversy, there is concern that it’s not as protective as they claim. Another sunscreen that’s ok to use is Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30 . If I feel I need it, I might use some PANTENE - Never Tell Dry Shampoo to just freshen up my hair a bit. This routine just ties me over until I can take my nightly shower and do my nightly routine. It certainly leaves me feeling refreshed and ready for the ready of the day, especially after exhausting workouts!

Any recommendations to restore my skin’s barrier and to increase collagen as well as clearing out my pimples and acne scars would be much appreciated!

Tried for body breakouts
#Clean&Clear - Deep cleaning astringent[products]#[FourStars] This is fungal acne safe and has salicylic acid which helps fight fungal acne. I tried this for body acne. It helped a little... What has really worked well for my body acne is The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA which is also fungal acne safe and has helped my skin become a lot smoother! 👍🏼

Why does my skin react different night vs day?
Over the years I have gone through hundreds of products figuring out what works for me. I have finally found a good set of products that I love, but sometimes when I use certain products in the daytime (such as Bio-Oil - Multiuse Skincare Oil and certain facemasks, I breakout so much worse than I do when I use the same exact product at night! I am confused by this so I have been wondering if it’s related to my oil levels throughout the day or what? Should I be using more drying products in the day time and hydrating at night? The only ones that really work for me day and night are The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and THE BODY SHOP - Jumbo Tea Tree Oil although I know Hyram has said oils are not for the face

getting off makeup and clear skin with rosacea!
okay... so I know I've posted this before, and Cherie is (devastatingly) closing down, but I thought I'd share one last post. This really works. one is a prescription and there are a couple items missing, so I'll add them to the pictures. Here is the order they say to put on skincare (as depicted) 1) makeup remover/wash (I use Queen Helene cold cream that I SWEAR by, sometimes BURT’S BEES - BURT‘S BEES Sensitive Facial Cleanser ) 2) Facewash/second face wash (I use DERMA•E - Sensitive Skin Cleanser and Joeseph anti Acne soap 10% sulfur) 3) Toner (I use THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Toner ) 4) Serums (I use a few... my prescription Amzeeq, mostly The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% , and DERMA•E - Blue Light Shield Concentrated Serum ) 5) Spot Treatments (Murad - Invisiscar Resurfacing Treatment , tea tree oil when needed) 6) Eye Cream (not pictured - DERMA•E - Firming DMAE Eye Lift Cream ) 7) Moisturizer (2 different kinds depending on how dry I am- pictured: Alba Botanica Aloe Green tea moisturizer, not pictured: skinfix - Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream ) 8) Retinol: Now, because I have rosacea, I use a retinol alternative. The best one for sensitive skin I found is The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion use at night only) 9) Face Oil: HEAR ME OUT: If you have oily skin, it's not the WORST thing to use an oil. As a matter of fact, it may work well. BEST ONE BY FAR IS ROSEHIP OIL. I can't tell you how amazing it is The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil , and JOSIE MARAN - Pure Argan Milk Intensive Hydrating Treatment during the day) wear sunscreen during the day, and put it in place of retinol. I use Glossier. - Invisible Shield Daily Sunscreen it's a great light moisturizer, too. And at night in the winter if it's super dry, I'll put petroleum jelly around the corners of my eyes and lips. The results don't lie, Cherie babes (: comment below I'd you know of a better eye cream.

The products that saved my skin!
Mamonde - Petal Spa Oil to Foam Cleanser Mamonde - Rose Water Toner Mamonde - Floral Essential Serum Hello beautiful people! I wanted to show you the products that really saved my skin. I purchased the Floral Energy Discovery set as a treat to my self. I fell in love with the enchanting fragrances of this set! This was my very first skin care routine, which I started about two years ago. My skin felt softer and smoother within days! The results made me start to explore and discover other skin care products, and ultimately helped me to learn to care for my maturing skin. I continue to use Mamonde products on addition to other skin care faves I’ve discovered on the way. What is your favorite Mamonde product? ❣️

Stumbled on this 💎!
Mamonde - Rose Water Toner I went to Ulta and was directed to this little 💎 . I went in searching for a toner that I could use in my morning routine that would hydrate and refresh my dry sleepy skin, as well as gently exfoliate to smooth out the overall appearance it. 💲23 Not to pricey for a good toner. This product claims to be a multitasking water that tones, soothes, and hydrates your skin as well as prep your skin for make up or next steps in your beauty regimen. It contains an antioxidant rich extract from damask rose which soothes and purifies, the watery essence formula in this product provides fast absorbing hydration. It also contains lactic acid which gently exfoliates your skin for a smoother appearance. To use you just apply a small amount into your hand or a cotton pad and gently sweep onto your face starting from your nose and moving outward then gently pat any remaining product onto your skin. You can use this in the a.m. and p.m. I personally only use it in my morning routine. ❤️❤️❤️🌟🌟🌟🌟💎💎💎 Why I love this product and why I gave it four ⭐️ I have only been using this product for about a week so it’s a little early to tell on all the benefits that it claims to provide, but I do plan on revisiting my review after I’ve emptied the bottle. My Experience 😊🔥💎❤️ 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ First I have to talk about how amazing this toner smells!!! I mean when you are putting it on your skin it’s like you just shoved your face in a fresh bouquet of red roses. It is such a nice smell and no it does not get weird after you apply other things that happen to have sent in them the scent does fade, but as you apply it it’s definitely enjoyable. At this time I can say it hasn’t caused any more irritation to my skin, which can happen for me when I try a new product. It is definitely soothing even during hormonal breakouts. I do feel my complexion is becoming brighter, softer ,and it does give a nice dewy look to my skin. The only reason I only use it in the mornings is because over toning my skin for me, leads to breakouts no matter what purpose I’m using that toner for. This will probably become my go to toner. I do recommend this product.

So the main questions I have come across with The Ordinary products is HOW to use them? It may seem like buying a bunch of different bottles is excessive BUT with The Ordinary products it is meant to be like that. Its a way to customize your skin care routine to best fit your needs and quite inexpensive. This way you use what you need or what your skin tolerates versus buying expensive creams that might contain an ingredient that it not suitable for your skin. So the question is HOW to use it? I too had similar questions and read so much information and blogs. I had a chat with one of their experts regarding a good regimen, considering that the skin tolerates all the ingredients. Two tips to start with is: 1. Test each product individually. Meaning if you but a few different bottles don't use all at once. 2. Wash face thoroughly and pat dry. Sample AM: Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc (day on, don't rub) EUK 134% Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG SPF + Moisturizer Sample PM, Option 1: Lactic Acid 10% (or 5% if sensitive) Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc (if acne prone) Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Moisturizer Sample PM, Option 2: Retinol 2% (or your desired Strength) Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Moisturizer (The expert mentioned that the Retinol could be applylied then followed by the Vitamin C - Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate, IF a few test patches were done, however I think mixing the two is a big No-No, maybe alternate nights) Sample PM, Option 3: Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate Solution 20% in Vitamin F Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG Moisturizer PM regimens can alternate nights too. The key step on all these steps is Moisturizer! Any brand or type that works well for you is fine, doesn't have to be pricey as long as it is providing moisture. Additionally, let's talk about the famous AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, this could be used 1x a week, IF you're not sensitive. I find that instead of waiting the full 10 minutes you could do like 5 minutes one time a week or even 1x every 2 weeks and increase the minutes as you continue to use until you're able to leave on for the 10 minutes as instructed. I have tried the above combos slowly and so far it has been great, but what works for one person might not work for another. When in doubt you can always ask an expert through their site. Overall, my FAVORITE product is the Niacinamide 10% + 1% Zinc. It has left my skin super soft and the slight redness I used to have is gone. I have fair skin and I feel this has helped balance out my skin so much. I am not oily at all during the day, and this is a huge deal for me. I live in S. Florida and being oil free during the day is a big win. It also leaves me with a dewy look which just makes me feel great in my skin. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Progress of clear skin using The ordinary

Okay so first I wanted to explain the type of skin I have which is very sensitive skin. I have ezcema but I get oily in my t-zone. People say it’s better if you are sensitive to not use this product. Because it will irritate the skin. Been told It’s more efficient for combo or oily skin. Well it was hard for me to find a product since (( I have sensitive skin ))to get rid of my acne. So I decided to buy it and I have watched many people videos on YouTube but some don’t explain how to use these products throughly. I had to do some real research on how to use it. What products to use with it , to leave it on or wash off, do I use before or after? Those are the concerns I had that many people didn’t talk about but they did explain how many times out of the week and the benefits you gain from using it. I wanted to know the routine. So for those who have sensitive skin I would try it cause it may work for you. But I used all three product on separate days, mainly at night. I waited each 24 hours to see if I got a reaction. I put it small amount on my jaw line. So make sure you do that just to be cautious to your pretty face. There is a disclaimer YOUR SKIN WILL BE DRIED IF YOU DON’T USE A THICK MOSITURIZER . This is my routine for Tuesday and Thursday only at night : I washed my face with a cleanser, toner then I applied 4 drops of the aha peel leave for 5 minute and wash it off. Do not rub it when applying the aha . Just apply it with light stokes. After i put niacinamide over the aha peel add moisturizer and that is it. ( I use niacinamide 5 days out of the week) Saturday: Cleanser, toner, lactic acid, niacinamide and moisturizer. That’s it ! This is my 2nd week using the products and I see a huge difference! Thank you for reading my ted talk !

Closed Conedones.. let’s talk ✨ I’ve had these my whole life! I’m 17F so still battling it. These products have worked wonders. I have always used The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution and it was the only thing that helped my skin for months, but not enough. So I’ve tried so many products and during a pandemic I took the time to do research and landed on the rest. With the The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% my bumps went away overnight last night, my first night trying it. And with OXY - Acne Medication With Benzoyl Peroxide it kept my acne from forming and keeps my skin clean, it smells like pool water but don’t let that fool you! They all worked wonders for my oily bumpy skin.

Bringing to you The Ordinary (@deciem) for my #FriyayFaves and I mean who doesn’t love seeing The Ordinary on their feed? I know I do!Featuring: ✨ Granactive Retinoid 2% in Squalane: I absolutely adore this product, it has truly changed my skin for the better. This is suitable for my dry/sensitive skin which is amazing because sometimes it can be hard to find things that truly work for my skin. And its great for anti-aging. ✨Niacinamide 10% and Zinc 1%: On top of having dry/sensitive skin, I have mild acne-prone skin (occasional mild cystic acne). This product as many of you may know, reduces the appearance of blemishes and congestion overtime, and it does exactly that for me! ✨”Buffet” Serum: This was the very first product I ever tried from The Ordinary and I genuinely loved it. I am on my 5th bottle now. This contains many different peptide and probiotic complexes as well as hyaluronic acid complexes that help target skin aging! My skin seems more youthful looking and glowy and I notice the difference whenever I don’t use this! I am looking to try the “Buffet” + Copper Peptides 1%, if you have ever used that before, please comment how it worked for you and if it’s worth giving a try? ❤️ ✨ AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution: Ok, so. At first I hated this product. Let’s be real, if you have dry/sensitive skin.. this will burn as hell when you put it on. The first time I ever tried this, I couldn’t even bare keeping it on for more than 3 minutes. My skin felt itchy, hot and it was just overall not a good feeling. Fast forward a few months later, I love it. I realized I needed to build a tolerance to high % of acids before using this again. Once I started to commonly incorporate different AHA, BHA to my face on a more so regular basis, my skin is now loving this product! I wake up the next morning after use, and my skin is GLOWING & feels so smooth. Let me know what @deciem products you like below. 🌱 #TheOrdinarySkincare

The Ordinary - Niacinamide (aka: a skin saver) ✨
The Ordinary, where do I start? I have never had a product that is so insanely inexpensive have such amazing results. And I mean that. For only $6 ($5.90 to be exact) it’s a real steal, and here’s why! • Backstory: My skin has always been highly irritated (like me) & has gone through plenty of rough patches growing up. Having acne issues in my family though I remained lucky in the fact I never had skin that wasn’t impossible to tame, just impossible to predict. And for me, someone who has recently been told they have an extreme hormonal imbalance, that explains so much. I have fought with my skin for years, finding products that would work for a few months only to have no lasting effect, which I now understand the issue came from an imbalance that was constantly throwing my skin for a loop. I could never find something that could keep up the constant fluctuations that I had no idea were even occurring, & then one day, before I even knew what was going on, I found The Ordinary (on TikTok, duh)! I saw the Peeling Solution first, but I still hadn’t been wooed. It wasn’t until a friend of mine (thank you Cadence!), who is very open with her acne struggles, had tweeted that The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% had changed her life! And that’s when I made my first purchase! • Review - the Pros & Cons: • Pros: ✨ INEXPENSIVE - don’t go spending $30+ on anything else until you’ve at least tried this first, the $6 price tag is worth a shot ✨ last forever - one 1.0oz bottle last me at least 3 months, AND I used it TWICE a day ✨ none irritating - I never experienced any irritation or chemical reaction with this product, you just need to be careful when applying to skin with open sores ✨ very light - the consistency is so refreshing & feels a lot nicer then you would expect. It’s refreshing on the skin ✨ applicator is everything - absolutely adore the packaging of this product. The dropper allows a very sanitary application (just try to not touch the skin, I’m guilty!) ✨ the payoff - I saw results in less than a week, & I say that’s getting wayyyyyy more than your money’s worth ✨ lasting results - YES ✨ aesthetics - it’s just cute y’all, that’s that • Cons: ▪️ can be tacky - depending on how you store it the consistency could become tacky, but it never bothered me ▪️ using a dropper - this application process does take come practice and getting used to, & remembering to not touch the applicator to your skin can be hard ▪️ it can be hard to find - it’s VERY popular so you may have a hard time shopping for this one (I’m literally just knit picking, this product is a DREAM) • Overall: 15/10, life changing, a dream, a must have ✨ • All n’ All: I’ve used this product for MONTHS & I have to say I absolutely adore it! I’m on my second bottle (about to be on a third), & I don’t think I’ll be changing this aspect of my routine anytime soon! • Just a Suggestion: I keep this product refrigerated (as I do many others, I love my skin care fridge), & I HIGHLY recommend it!

After seeing so many raving reviews on this product, I have to say I was definitely expecting something different. This product contains AHAs and BHAs which are meant to: •AHAs (aka Alpha Hydroxy Acid) is known for its collagen production stimulation, helps with inflammation and hyper pigmentation, and how it works great with dry skin types while... •BHAs (aka Beta Hydroxy Acid ) is known for really "degunking" pores, fights against acne, and is great for all skin types, especially oily skin. It's safe to say these chemicals work wonders on our skin but should not be on our skin for any longer than 10 minutes, as warned on the packaging. If that doesn't sound scary enough, when I put this face mask on, it instantly BURNED. PAINFULLY. Y'all, when I say I have never experienced this in skincare, I mean it. I've always had sensitive skin, but nothing made my skin burn like this. Not willing to give up on this glorified product, I tried it again. It still burned my skin but less this time, as maybe my skin was getting used to such chemicals. Besides the burning, I give this product 2 stars because it did bring down a couple pimples I had at the time and I felt like my pores were so clean. BUT if you have sensitive skin, USE THIS PRODUCT WITH PRECAUTION.
