Good Molecules Hydrogel Eye Patches
As someone with large eyes and dry skin I am always looking for eye patches, eye creams, and basically anything that will hydrate my under eye area! It's been very hard to find an undereye cream or gel that works for me but in the meantime eye patches are great for quick hydration. I decided to purchase the GOOD MOLECULES - Caffeine Energizing Hydrogel Eye Patches and for my first try they worked great! They are perfect for anyone with dry undereyes. The serum that they are soaked in is this thick and cool, it helps the patches stay on your face and not slide while keeping your skin hydrated. At first I didn't see a difference after using them but I think it lessened the look of my undereye lines actually! Great for mornings and to use before putting on makeup under your eyes! I did have one small issue, because the serum was so thick when I patted it into my skin after the treatment, it began to roll or peel up a bit. it didn't bother me that much but that is something to think about before buying. Overall I love them and plan on using them a few times a week!

Microneedling changed my skin!
I battle with acne for my entire adult life. It started soon after starting my university career and progressively for worse over the years. I tried everything from doxycycline to strong birth control, to aggressive prescription creams and NOTHING worked ... until I found Microneedling. The transformation you see in this photo was from November 2019 (photos on the right taken on the day of my first treatment) to March 2020 - that’s only 5 months! What is Microneedling? Microneedling is a procedure that involved creating micro channels in the skin using a Microneedling pen. The tip of the pen has lots of tiny little needles that pierce the skin. But isn’t that painful? Not at all - your skin is numbed the whole time! What is Microneedling used for? It can help with many different skin concern such as acne scarring, surgery/injury scars, sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture and milia! What about using dermarollers at home? Many of you may have seen dermarollers that you can buy on amazon and even winners - please do not use these! Because of the way they enter and exit your skin, they can cause undesirable tearing and even scratching of the skin - which can do more harm than good! I’m ready to book a consultation - where should I go? Although Microneedling is available as a treatment by just about anyone - I would strongly recommend only getting this treatment with a cosmetic nurse. Cosmetic nurses have the education to know the skin anatomy and know how to do this procedure properly. I have seen too many things done incorrectly by aestheticians who do not have proper training. Microneedling should be done as a procedure on it’s own and not as a part of a facial. There should not be any masks, serums or creams applied to your face during the procedure! What about recovery? Typically you’ll need about a full week to get back to normal. The first 24h you should not apply anything to your face unless something was given to you by the nurse! 2-3 days following the treatment you can cleanse the skin with a mild cleanser and apply a very basic cream. After 3-4 days you can wear light mineral makeup or bb cream. For about 1 week you will notice your skin is dry and flaky but the dryness will peel away and reveal gorgeous glowing skin! I hope you guys enjoyed this review! Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions, I’ll be more than happy to answer them. The cosmetic nurse who did my Microneedling is on insta as @PlumpItUpp
The Ultimate Cleanser and Exfoliator in One J Be
Over the weekend I committed a cardinal skin care sin – I forgot to put on sunscreen. Anyone who’s interested in skincare knows that sun screen is one of the most important products in a skin care routine. Needless to say, after a few hours outside I got a pretty bad sunburn which lead to major peeling and extremely dry skin. Luckily, I happened to stumble across this unique J-beauty product. Although it’s labeled as a cleanser, I mainly used it as an exfoliator. This product comes conveniently packaged for those who like to travel as the white powder comes in perfectly sized tiny packages. Each package holds just enough product for one thorough face wash. The Suisai Beauty Clear Powder suisai - Beauty Clear Powder contains two gentle enymes and lactic acid that exfoliate dead skin cells, hyaluronic acid for hydration, tofu extract to brighten the skin and royal jelly for skin brightening. These ingredients are particularly great for the skin and for exfoliation. This product is amazing if your skin has been feeling rather congested. Despite its exfoliating properties, this beauty powder is extremely gentle on the skin. The powder inside the pod was extremely fine to my surprise and when mixed with a small amount of lukewarm water the product created a rich, dense foam. I gently applied the foam to my face, massaging in small circular motions for about one minute. After rinsing off the foam will lukewarm water, I could already begin to feel that the roughness on my skin had melted away. Afterwards my skin was clear, bright and firm. Although this isn’t a product I would use on a daily basis, I think it’s the perfect cleanser for once or twice weekly. For only $29.99 USD this container should last me a few months and I’m looking forward to seeing how my skin improves. This product might be the catalyst of my J beauty journey!

Fine lines enemy🥳Eye cream No.1 reward!
ABOUT ME：Combination dry skin, fine line around eyes. Easy to get fat particles. Getting an eye cream is not a difficult task but finding your eye cream can be a challenge journey. My skin around eyes is very sensitive. No matter they are European or American brands like LAMER or KIEHL's or Asian brands like SKII or CPB, each product has caused fat particles. When I use each of them twice, my eyes will appear “fresh fat particles” in the third morning. That is ridiculous, but it actually happens. So I didn’t use an eye product even over half month before. This eye product from ELIXIR is the only brand that currently hasn’t produced skin problems around my eyes. I truly enjoy the benefits of retinol. Have been using it for 4 weeks, I could tell that it does help my fine line. Expecting to see the solve in 9 weeks! ✨✨INGREDIENT： With two series to choose from, you can guarantee a match to your eyes’ skin. Here I bought is golden packaging, which is effective to reduce wrinkle. There is also a type with silver packaging, which adds a whitening effect. This product contains high purity active retinol, which acts on epidermal keratinocytes and reduces wrinkles that have formed. ATTENTION! This product is to reduce old wrinkles not for anti-wrinkle effect. This ingredient will be decomposed by temperature and oxygen. So the packaging of this product is very unique, the air outside is not able to get into the product inside. ✨✨TEXTURE：This product can be used not only as an eye cream but also as a facial wrinkle cream. The first time I used ELIXIR, the texture felt less like an eye cream and more like a lotion. It's very moist and not greasy. The scent makes people feel pleasant. I don't have visible facial wrinkling, but under my eyes there are many fine and dry lines. After I use it for about a month, the fine lines are really toned down! Most of all, I am really surprised to see that no fat particles appear. ✨✨VALUE：This product is more suitable for 25+. It only has the effect of wrinkle removal. Effects as brightening, fading black circles and removing edema have no. But I think this product has the highest cost performance among other eye products. It sells for $86 of $15g. I am really satisfied that it can have this kind of excellent effect with a price under $100. ✨✨HOW I USE：Because everyone reacts differently to ingredient of retinol. If you are sensitive skin, first use frequency should be 2-3 days once, the period is two weeks. I have A friend who is allergic to retinol. When she first used it, skin around her eyes turned red. But she gradually got used to it after two weeks’ trial. So you have to be careful when you use it. In addition, this product should be massaged from the end of the eye to the front. 🔥TIP：DON’T USE IT ON A.M. ❤️FINALLY, I GIVE THIS PRODUCT RATE 9/10. ELIXIR - Enriched Wrinkle Cream

MY PORES ARE SHRINKING😱
(please ignore how gross my face looks lols) You might not be able to tell up close, but if you were to compare the before picture to the after picture, my pores appear MUCH smaller and tighter. Since you can’t tell in the pictures, rely on the cherie skin evaluation that says my pores went from huge to average size! I’ve had HUGE pores and my skin is very sensitive and prone to acne. My skin was also starting to face some blackheads and whiteheads, so I really wanted to try a salicylic acid product that would cleanse my pores and also help tighten them. I know it’s said to be unlikely/impossible to change the size of your pores; however, PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA (Salicylic Acid) Liquid Exfoliator is not from this earth!! I have found my HOLY GRAIL product!🤩 I’d heard so much about this product and it LIVES up to hype y’all!! I have only been using this product for about 3 weeks, 4-5 times a week during my night routine and I already see such amazing results. I don’t even use it daily and my pores are already shrinking! Compared to now, my pores used to be so LOOSE and not ironically, porous. They seriously look so much smaller and tighter now. I am so so so happy with it! The product itself is quite thin and doesn’t feel sticky or tingly on my skin. Very easy application and fits into my skincare routine without any disruption. No uncomfortable smells, sensations or textures whatsoever. This product SHOWS results and it is not very expensive either. I HIGHLY recommend this product to anyone who wants to shrink their pores, has acne or blackheads. It is not too expensive and definitely worth trying out once!!
