New Vitamin C eye cream review!
I recently was gifted this Eye cream and I have thoughts about it @mylansea Vitamin C eye cream #Mylansea - Vitamin C eye cream[products]#[FourStars] It's a really lightweight get texture and siliconey formula which feels really hydrating. The silicone based formula also makes it a great occlusive. For my fine lines and wrinkles this is working great to fill in the lines and also smoothening out rough skin. It has Peptides, Glycerine, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C and Niacinamide. I think these Ingredients highlight makes this eyecream really hydrating and brightening! The slightly translucent gel formula is my favorite part about this. I prefer my eye creams to be gel or lightweight as I anyway take my moisturizer all the way to my under eyes! But for dryer days I need something more to lock the moisture around my eyes. With this I experienced my eyes look less tired and the fine lines get filled with the Silicone formula which makes my skin look a lot smoother and plumper. Also, the peptides blend in it makes it a great humectant as well as emollient. However this result is just instantaneous and I haven't seen any brightening yet. I have been using it only for a week to see any brightening effect. I think I'll use it more to see if it does anything more than hydrating ✨🌿
Makeup is flawless perfection with these brushes
These are some of favourite face brushes!! 😍❤️ I am a huge fan of beauty tools and no exception for makeup tools!! I have these face brushes that I absolutely love and makeup application with these is much more flawless and smooth. Good quality brushes are so important for blending seamlessly and I have learned to blend without sweating with these extremely soft bristle brushes!! I wish you could extend your hand touch these, feel how soft these bristles are! 😍 I think that is what makes them super fabulous in makeup! Every product cream or powder blends to perfection with these brushes! I don't like cakey finishes and stripey looks to makeup, and these brushes make it so easy for me! Also, all of them have very sterdy, heavy handles (heavy enough to keep the balance) to hold well and that helps in keeping the balance and pressure while applying makeup. I have many other brushes that I have used in the past and thought they're the best quality before I found these! ❤️ The brushes showed in picture are : @luxiebrushes - The best of the best!!

New favorite Chemical exfoliant!! It works 😍❤️
My new favorite Chemical exfoliant!! ❤️✨ @drdennisgross Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting & Refining serum Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting & Refining Serum This serum is amazing! I have been using this for long enough to make a firm decision and I think I love how it performs on skin! As the name suggests it's a chemical exfoliant with AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid). AHAs are water soluble and BHAs are Oil soluble, that is the main reason they do different tasks on skin. AHAs have several acids under the term These all AHAs are derived from many different plant or fruit extracts but BHA is solely Salicylic acid. It's derived from Willow Bark extract. 🌿Highlights of this product: 🏵️ This serum particularly is formulated to target Pores and blackheads! 🏵️ However, it also helps with skin texture and hyperpigmentation. 🏵️ Formulated with Ingredients: - Agarikon Mushroom Extract: Helps reduce shine without drying skin and firms skin making pores appear smaller and tighter. - Adipic Acid: Smooths the look of skin by filling in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. - Glycolic acid - Lactic acid - Salicylic Acid + Farnesol: Fights pore blockage. 🌿 My experience: 🏵️ Reduced the look of large pores dramatically. 🏵️ Takes about 6 weeks to start seeing any visible difference 🏵️ Smoothened out skin texture and look of fine lines. 🏵️ Slightly evened out skin tone 🏵️ Feels lightweight on skin and absorbs quicker 🏵️ Works amazing with Niacinamide, Alpha Arbutin and Azelaic acid 🏵️ Slightly brightens skin. 🏵️ I used it every other day to prevent irritation. Overall I found this a great AHA BHA serum! 😍 The price of this is a little steep 65$ for 1 fl.oz but all Dennis Gross products are expensive and this serum is the same quality as their Alpha Beta Peels! Would you like to try this? 🏵️🌿

Tatcha Dewy skin cream - Why do I like it?
Why do I like this cream? Or Do I actually find it helpful? Swipe left to see texture! Well, for a moment let's forget the whole beauty influencer community raving about it for feeling good on skin or Hyram discarding it for fragrance! 😅 Let's think do we need to listen to people's individual opinions and make decisions about our skin based off their recommendations? I wouldn't do that, I always make sure I tell my thoughts about certain product only when I've tried it and I never truly blindly believe any beauty influencers and rant about a product. You shouldn't too! So, Try before you have any solid opinion and I would say, Have fun trying new products every month or few months! 😉 I know many people have a love-hate relationship with this @tatcha Dewy cream! TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream But I still decided to give it a try and guess what? I actually found it very well functioning! ✨Why I liked this product? - The main reason is it has Ginseng!!! If you haven't checked my post about Ginseng you should check it out. - Like Niacinamide Ginseng is best friend to your pores, texture and Hyperpigmentation. - Another reason is it's cream gel texture. It's super lightweight but feels sliky smooth when you apply on skin. - One more addition to my Liked factors list, it freaking saves dehydrated skin. I know my skin simply adores it when it's dehydrated and flakey. - Because of Ginseng it really helped my skin tone get even and brightened it. - This also helped a little bit with Acne scars and dry patches. - A little goes a long way, you only need maybe the trial size of it to keep on using for weeks. ✨Now Why someone would hesitate to buy this?? - Ofcourse it's price!! 68$ for 1.7 fl.oz is definitely steep. - Also, this has synthetic fragrance and color added. This cream is truly one of my favorite now. I don't think I mind fragrance or color in skincare but for some who do, the fragrance is very mild and the color is also less. But if you still want to know how this works for your skin, try it! 😊 You might actually find it working Amazing for you! ❤️ Hope you enjoy this review and don't forget to love yourself ❤️

Ingredients for Uneven texture! ✨
We’re all after skin with a smooth surface, but the reality is that most of us experience uneven skin texture. This common concern can affect all skin types and often presents as a flaky, rough or bumpy complexion. Whether due to acne, aging or pore size, texture issues can leave skin looking flat, dull and less youthful. Here’s our guide to what causes uneven skin texture and how to fix it. Causes Of Uneven Skin Texture Over your lifetime, your skin will go through many changes that affect and alter its surface. These are the most common causes of uneven skin texture: 1. Dryness: Smoothing dry skin is as simple as mastering two steps in your skin care routine: exfoliating and moisturizing. Regular exfoliation with a physical or chemical exfoliant sloughs dead cells from the skin’s surface and clears the way for healthy cells hidden beneath. Follow up with a moisturizer that is rich in triglycerides and fatty acids; these beneficial ingredients not only replenish moisture, they also strengthen your skin’s lipid barrier. Together, these steps keep skin soft, smooth and supple for longer. 2. Acne Acne is triggered by a mix of factors, including excess oil, bacteria, hormones and genetics. Salicylic acid has a long history of treating acne effectively and efficiently. This gentle BHA clears blocked pores, calms angry skin and prevents future breakouts. With regular use, it contributes to a smoother, more even complexion. 3. Acne Scarring: You can improve the look of acne scars with a two-pronged approach that both resurfaces and plumps your skin’s texture. Look for natural exfoliators like rice flour and Glycolic acid/Lactic acid (AHAs) to refine your skin’s surface as well as ingredients like Vitamin C and botanical hyaluronic acid to improve elasticity and plump your complexion. 4. Fine Lines & Wrinkles: One way to smooth fine lines and wrinkles is to use skin care formulated with peptides. The other powerful Ingredient is Vitamin A AKA Retinol or Retinoids. These help with increasing cell turnover and hence helps collagen cells to rebuild upto certain point. Retinoids also exfoliate mildly which helps in refining skin texture. 5. Milia: Do you have tiny white bumps around your eye area? They could be milia. While milia will often clear up on their own, persistent cases may require extraction by a licensed professional. For this type of uneven skin texture, you want to clear congestion and improve elasticity. Chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) BHAs and Retinols Or Natural Retinol Alternative bakuchiol can help to get into Hair follicles and clear it up! ✨Professional Treatments To Improve Skin Texture: In addition to your home care routine, there are several professional-grade treatments that can improve uneven skin texture. If you struggle with acne or skin sensitivity, we recommend consulting with your esthetician before booking a treatment. -Microdermabrasion -Professional Peels -Dermaplaning

FREAKING AMAZING!!! My hair has never felt so smooth before using this
Lately, I've been having more difficulty getting my hair as smooth as in the past. I've also experienced a more breakage than normal. My hair is thin, fine and pretty coarse while also being stupid frizzy. I knew it's hard to get your hair really well in a short time. So I decided to ask tool for help to at least make my hair not that frizzy. Then I can meet people without being diffident. I bought ghd - Platinum+ Professional Performance Styler finally. I knew about this iron but didn't want to spend all that money on something that you can get for so much less in a different brand. However, now that I have bought this iron I have to say so far it’s seeming like a great investment. Ghd Platinum+ is an updated version of Ghd Platinum, which has a breakthrough in hair care technology, and the damage to the hair has been reduced from originally 50 percent to 70 percent now. It has a great design, and has very long cord. This flat iron only has one temperature setting, and you do not need to control it by yourself since it’s all automatic! Just push the on button and it’s all done for you, automatically adjusting the heat setting based on your hair. Smart technology! It heats up in a matter of seconds. This flat iron curls, glides, and glosses as if by magic! When using, it doesn’t pull and grab my hair, providing me a kind of enjoyment. And once I get my hair straightened, I don't have to straighten it again until I wash it. I can use it to do a fabulous hair job without damaging my hair, and it always leaves my hair shinier and smoother than ever and no breakage! My hair is bleached but it feels a lot softer after a couple passes with the ghd in comparison to other brands leaving my hair with shriveled dry ends. I received many compliments on how healthy my hair looks. Great experience!

😱Only $36 and you can straighten your curly hair at home!
My hair was permed several months ago, and the curls were too long and out of shape. I didn't find a cost-effective way to straighten my hair until one of my friend recommended L 'Oreal smoothing cream to me. It is a product that helps straighen curly hair. If you want to save money, I highly recommend it. It's pretty easy to use at home! You don't need anyelse to help you. How to use Step 1: Wash your hair and blow-dry it totally. Step 2: Mix hair straight cream and your own conditioner in a ratio of 6:4 and add 5 or 6 drops of hair oil. Mix them together and apply evenly over your hair. Remember that stay away from the roots, or it really sticks to the scalp. step 3: When it is all done, take a few strands of hair from which you'll end up with the cream and pull them. If you can pull with double length and bounce back, then you can wash your hair. Step 4: You don't need use shampoo, and just wash your hair with warm water. Step 5: Blow-dry your hair, apply neutralizing lotion, and wait 15 minutes to wash it off. Reapply some hair conditioner and wash it off after 15 minutes, also without shampoo. Step 6：Blow-dry your hair from the top. If you still have little curly hair, use a hair straightener, and you'll get the perfect straight look. Once it is done, don't wash your hair in 2 or 3 days!!! Any recommendations for hair straightening products? TIA😝
Affordable&Amazing! This is a Game Changer for Oily Skin!!!
I have oily and acne-prone skin, which means I’m always dealing with clogged and enlarged pores, especially in the forehead nose (the T-zone😖). When pores are clogged, it can result in blackheads, acne and dull skin. My skin is also a little sensitive so my idea of the perfect exfoliator is one that can eliminate all that trapped dirt and debris without being harsh on the skin. My sister who studied in Japan recommended suisai - Beauty Clear Powder . I was a bit sceptical at first as it's packaged into tiny capsules which I've never tried before and the fine powder granules didn’t seem very scrub-like at all. However, my impression on the texture changed once I added water, as it lathered into a rich, bouncy foam almost immediately. I just used my finger to lather it up into foam like this, but some skincare tools like foaming mesh can do a better job. After just one use, I did feel that my face was squeaky clean, but not in a drying kind of way. And that my PM routine of toner and moisturiser didn’t feel as heavy. The MOST amazing thing is that the products effectively removed my blackheads!!! I just cleaned my nose with the bouncy foam to soften the blackheads, then use the needle remover to gently remove them. Don't forget to apply some aloe vera gel after that. I'm really amazed at the result! The product contains two different enzymes and amino acid cleansing ingredients that will exfoliate your skin by removing keratin plugs, residue in pores and reducing roughness. The smaller exfoliants that are designed to lift away dead skin cells on the surface before they get trapped in your pores. It's SUPER convenient for weekend trip as I don't have to worry about squeezing out too much product or about spillage in my luggage. I bought it for $24 (32 capsules per pack) and I think its worth it! I'll DEF repurchased it！

So you want shiny, healthy hair? 😎 Let me help
I’m back with another Amazon find, that will change ya life!! 🤑 If you’re like me, your hair is dry, damaged (color or heat) and loves a protein treatment. This is not an exact dupe of Olaplex (literally nothing is, it is a patented formula so beware of anyone claiming to be). However, this replicates some of the benefits that an Olaplex treatment gives you for a fraction of the price. Pros: Affordable Works for every hair type Delivers SHINE honey and hair feels healthier Defines curls, waves after rinsing Cons Small bottle, be conservative with application (maybe 1x a month) If you are protein sensitive this won’t be for you.

Hello BABY skin 😍😍😍
I’ve heard rave reviews regarding Paula’s Choice range and thought I try it out esp while it was on sale. Luckily it did not let me down... Phew 😅 Pic 1 - I had really dry skin around my mouth and nose from too much exfoliation and having the heater on throughout the day. Pic 2 - after using all the Paula’s choice range my skin was soft and dewy - not tight or dry. Pic 3 - in my opinion my make up settled into the skin really nice 👍 Note: - The pore cleanser is gel form - The exfoliant is a clear liquid which you will need to put on a cotton pad to wipe on your face (my skin is dry sensitive so I only used the exfoliant at night every second or third night). - The moisturiser is a white cream very light weight, non greasy on the skin. - The niacinamide feels like water (non greasy), I applied this before the moisturiser. - The face mask was a free gift - gotta love freebies 😉! If I was to repurchase I would definitely purchase the pore cleanser and moisturiser again. The cleanser has Salicylic acid in its ingredients so you could skip the exfoliant. Also the moisturiser is a barrier repair moisturiser which has retinol. This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, smooths and hydrates the skin so I can skip on the niacinamide booster. Love to hear your experience with Paula’s choice. And if you have any recommendations from the range I would love to hear it 🥰🥰🥰

WOW 1 application and I can see visible results!
Took the dive and purchase this pigmentclar serum to reduce the dark spots and uneven skin tone. My skin was really red and skin surface was bumpy. On the first application I felt a lot of tingling feeling around my T zones. Once the serum dried I applied a moisturiser. By morning my skin looked super smooth and soft. Will provide a 1 month photo to see the final results of using this product. But so far I’m impressed!
