This is what a pure fresh vitamin C serum should look like... This Ginger + Vitamin C serum shot from @sweetchefskincare Sweet CHEF - GINGER + VITAMIN C SERUM SHOT is a good affordable option for addition of Vitamin C in your skincare regimen. I think this serum works well for Lightening, brightening and tightening purpose, though the tightening can not be visible in short period of time but a potent Vitamin C does all three jobs well!! The brand says this about the product: A lightweight serum packed with antioxidant-rich ginger and potent vitamin C for a naturally hydrated and radiant complexion. Ginger helps to neutralize environmental aggressors and revive dull skin, while Vitamin C helps even skin tone and brighten for a radiant complexion. I think this is a purely inexpensive option for L- ascorbic acid as Vitamin C is very hard to make in a stable form for us to use it over the time. Hence the most Vitamin C products are usually at a pricey side but this is equally good option if you're looking for one! ✨ . . . . . . . . .

I have been loving this clear Mega hydrating moisturizer from @shiseido @waso_official SHISEIDO - WASO: Clear Mega-Hydrating Moisturizer in this dry weather so far!! 🍁🍂 The very first time I applied this, my skin felt so soft and smooth I was really impressed by the texture. Unlike other gel creams it doesn't feel tacky and doesn't fade away in few hours. WASO Clear Mega Hydrating Moisturizer is infused with ninjin carrot, a Japanese superfood for hydrated, healthy-looking skin. It also helps to reduce the appearance of pores for a more refined complexion. This clear gel formula can be used under or over makeup. With this being said, it can be used in your makeup before primer or this moisturizer as a good hydrating primer altogether. 💕 I am going to buy a full size of this as this is totally worth the money!! ❤

AHAs to treat Acne! @deciem The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling solution The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution - This saves my life always! I don't use this often but whenever I do, my skin instantly becomes smooth and baby soft. The Alpha Hydroxy Acid aka AHA is 30% which is little potent for frequent use and also it's a good way to prime your skin for BHAs and Retinols. This peeling solution does peel the outer cellular layer, creating channels for the retinol or other acids/ ingredients to penetrate to the epidermis and sometimes dermis as well. This potency is usually used by dermatologists to prep the skin for further retinol treatments. It's good for PIH (Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation), melasma, acne scars and general pigmentation irregularities. @fourthraybeauty Fourth Ray - REVEAL 10% ALPHA HYDROXY ACID SERUM It's a unique blend of two AHAs that is Glycolic acid and Lactic acid combined with Pomegranate extract and strawberry extract. It's again so great because it's coupled with hyaluronic acid which is our key to lock the moisture in the skin. I like this serum because it's very anti-inflammatory and does the same great job of resurfacing your skin. Glycolic acid is known for cell turnover and resurfacing, similarly Lactic acid is good for gently exfoliating the upper most layer containing dead skin cells and impurities. @beautybydesign #Beautybydesign - Treat N 586[products]# This serum was sent to me to try and I loved it! It has Vitamin C, organia casia, MSM and hyaluronic acid. This blend is so good to lighten, brighten and also smoothen your skin. I liked it because I like to pair this one with my @sundayriley Tidal enzyme water cream! Amazing product!❤

I want to share my two #haircarefavorites One from @igkhair Mistress Hydrating hair balm IGK - Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm and another one is @aveda Damage remedy daily hair repair AVEDA - damage remedy daily hair repair 🌹 I love these two recently to protect my hair from getting dry and frizzy. Igk hair balm is so good for my wavy hair, it enhances the look of my long curls and makes it super hydrating and shiny. I have not been using anything else after shampooing my hair. Aveda damage remedy is perfect when I'm going to heat style my hair and trust me it does wonders by protecting them and my hair look sleek and shiny. I use both sometimes when I have an event to attend and I love them both so much!! 🌟 What's your go to for after shampoo serum or balm?? ✨

Do you like clay masks? I am not huge fan of clay mask as I think I like my DIY honey masks or any masks with good humectant is good for me! Clay masks usually dry my skin a bit so I enjoy them in in my T zone area where I get little oily or my chin where I get my hormonal acne. This Pore Patrol clay mask from @blissbliss - Pore Patrol Mask is a good mask so far. It is nothing life changing though but I like the fact that it is creamy formula and doesn't dry my skin down. Their claims are : This silky soufflé mask, aerated with a combination of powerful clays, deeply cleanses skin and minimizes the look of pores, without leaving it dry or tight. French green and Kaolin micro-clays combine with willow bark to detoxify and declog pores Bentonite clay keeps oil in check; glycolic acid gently exfoliates to make sure pores don’t clog up later Hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested I agree with one of their claims is that it is non-drying mask. And it definitely helps with detoxifying skin leaving it feeling fresh. Kaolin clay is a great one for my skin, I enjoy it. 🌟 💕✨🔆❤ Have you tried this product? . . . .

Just because you have acne and scars doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to take care of your skin. Don’t let the stigma of beauty make you feel like you shouldn’t care for what you have. I used this routine for a week now and I’m impressed at how light my dark marks are getting and the texture of my skin is so smooth and supple. The Sand & Sky mask really helps plump up the skin and that’s why I also use it over my lips. SAND&SKY - Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask

MILK Makeup Flex Highlighter
Milk Makeup sent me the shade Blitzed, which is a rose gold highlighter, and it is b-e-a-uuuutiful! Highlighters have been a hot trend in the makeup industry and I’ve accumulated quite a lot of them for my collection, so it takes something special for a highlighter to WOW me, and Milk Makeup DID THAT! If it was publicly acceptable to cover myself in this highlighter, I would. Milk Makeup prides itself by incorporating quality ingredients into their products, all while being cruelty free & vegan. This shade is so stunning - the rose gold is true to color; not overly pinky, not too warm, not too cool, not too gold. The texture of this highlighter is silky; it’s so silky smooth, you’ll be tempted to keep running your finger over it. The hyaluronic filled spheres allow this highlighter to be hydrating, so it doesn’t crumble, it doesn’t flake, it’s not drying and it will give that wet shine that we all love in a highlighter! The component and pan is generous in size, giving you the option to use a more precise highlighter pointed brush, a fan brush or even a bigger, fluffy brush so you can apply it on your body if you’re feeling extra! The Flex highlighters retail for $28 each, with four shades to choose from. You get over 6 grams of product in the pan, so I think this is a very reasonable price point!

KVD Beauty True Portrait Foundation
If you are someone who likes to wear foundation on a daily or regular basis and enjoy coverage without the weight that typically comes with full coverage - this could be a great foundation for you to try! This medium coverage foundation, which I have found could easily be built up to a decent full coverage, is super lightweight thanks to the liquid to powder formula, which I found unique. The texture of this foundation is a bit runny when you dispense it, but it blends out beautifully and dries down to comfortable matte powder finish. I found that this foundation wore beautifully and lasted a full 8-10 hour work day with minimal touch ups, and it never cracked, separated or settled into fine lines on me.

Holy Grail Face Oil
Luxurious is the perfect adjective for the Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil. I’ll be honest - I was not a fan AT ALL of facial oils before this one. I have combination skin; mostly oily with some dry patches here & there. I tried a handful of facial oils from other brands and I always looked like I stood in front of a fryer for 23 hours. When I received the DE Littles kit a few months ago, I figured I would give facial oil one more chance; I created my first DE smoothie using protini, 2 pumps of b-hydra and 2 drops of the Marula oil - I was in love. My skin felt so nourished, soft, and hydrated. I couldn’t stop touching my face, saying “wow” to myself! Fast forward to today, I mix 2-3 drops each night for my night time routine. This facial oil is a must have for me & definitely here to stay. 💛 There are absolutely no additives - Drunk Elephant takes the ingredient straight from the Marula fruit leaving it untouched, delivering a product to consumers that is in its purest form. Loaded with beneficial antioxidants and omegas 6 & 9, this facial oil seeps into the skin to help reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, redness, and blotchiness, while giving you youthful, hydrated glow. I should also add that this product is versatile considering it can also be used for your nail cuticles and hair. Available in several sizes, the price point ranges from $40-$72, but Drunk Elephant also has gift sets and kits that contain mini sizes of this product (which will last you awhile). I also love the packaging / component of this product; it certainly gives you luxury vibes. The minis come in a pump component, where as the midi and full size come in a luxurious glass dropper. I 100% believe the price is right, especially since there is a variety of sizes ranging in price to accommodate whatever budget it is that you may have. I am a firm believer that skincare is a worthy investment; your makeup only looks as good as what is underneath.
