My thoughts on clean beauty: @cherie Ann wrote an article about my clean journey ☺️ ((Im not wearing any makeup in this picture at all 💓)) A major thing to take away from the word “clean” is what is truly clean🙁? And what it means to you. Not everyone wants or needs to use cleaner products. But at the end of the day cleaner labeled products can be more effective for your skin needs. So many products contain ingredients that are just not needed or do the opposite of what the product is made to achieve- like putting an alcohol in a moisturizer, this will just make you skin even drier. Going for cleaner products should mean going for clean ingredients as well. What I do for a clean life style: ⭐️Disclaimer: I’m a (junior) biomedical student. So much of what I write here is my personal opinion based on what I’ve learned about the human body and how it works at a university level, but many of these I’m about to explain can be verified by doctors. I’m not a doctor. This is what worked for me and my body⭐️ Overall I’ve learned that you can’t just use these cleaner beauty products/ skincare on the surface and not do anything where it truly counts- from within. Clean beauty for me in more recent years has been discovering what things I can use/eat to nourish my body from the inside. Little to no sugar or heavy carbohydrates like white bread or pasta, NO added color ever. I’ve cut out almost all dairy products (expect for cheese 😩😍) and I take NEOCELL - Super Collagen and HUM - Daily Cleanse Clear Skin and Body Detox Supplement to help my skin and ensure that my body’s cells are processing some unhealthy items/ fatty food items I may eat time to time well. (Look up a Chinese pimple chart to see where you may be having problems with your skin based on organ function it’s really cool) Take care of your body and you will be rewarded. Clean beauty product I recommend: I will always swear by ILIA - Limitless Lash Mascara 🤤 98% natural and melts off with water which I LOVE. because I hate taking off mascara. The best part is my NATURAL LASHES LOOK SO MUCH BETTER than before I was using it. It’s amazing. Favorite beauty tip: I always always am constantly dusting my room and cleaning my phone📱. I think that we shouldn’t turn use face products to conceal any imperfections (not saying everyone who uses it does) but many people tend to. Small changes in your environment and taking breaks from wearing makeup all together can do so much for your skin. Also tea tree oil is a BLESSINGGG with water to spot treat pimples.TRADER JOE'S - Spa 100% Australian Tea Tree Oil Clean beauty overall: Take time to learn what popular ingredients mean and if what you’re using now- labeled “clean” or not is benefitting or harming you. 😊❤️ Dont be fooled!

Best Drunk Elephant Product For Ance🙌🏻
Best Drunk Elephant Product For Ance🙌🏻
DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum is in my eyes, one of the best, if not the best products they make. (I have normal skin for reference) “An AHA/BHA night serum that refines and resurfaces skin to reveal a smoother and more radiant complexion. Framboos enhances the performance of other products by clearing the way for maximum absorption.” Via Drunk Elephant 💓 WHAT AN AHA IS✨? - An AHA or alpha hydroxy acid, is more suitable for all skin types because sometimes BHAs can really dry you out. They work with the surface layers of your skin to give a more gentle and effective exfoliation than a topical exfoliant. AHAs are normally derived from hydrolytic molecules of celluose from plants that help maintain moister. REVIEW💓: If you are totally new to acids, you should start here in my opinion based on my experience. I never topically exfoliated. I’ve only ever used acids since I was young but wow does TLC do the JOB!! I was gifted this product * but I had purchased a smaller one prior to receiving this one in the Littles set, and before that I always was going into Sephora for samples lol. ((At a $90 price tag I do suggest getting samples for a couple months first from Sephora)) I do find the price tag to be worth it. My skin LOOKS so much cleaner when I use this consistently. This formula is a thin gel consistency. ❤️YOU WANT TO USE THE SMALLEST AMOUNT POSSIBLE! When I use too much I actually break out more. ❤️ Overnight the first time I used it to seemly zapped all my pores. I could not believe it. My boyfriend noticed a difference right away. I would recommend this to everyone, and I do. It also is a great spot treatment for acne. The results really are pretty instant, 😅it’s insane. The more I used it tho, I felt I wasn’t seeing results... but that was due to it constantly keeping my skin decongested. This is a miracle worker if you ask me. 🤗ESPECIALLY SINCE IT CAME WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS TO MY ULTRASENSITIVE SKIN🤗

TRULY - Dew You Love Me? Jelly Face Mask This is cute. That’s where it starts and ends. I honestly only bought this for looks because it has little heart flakes in it. (I have normal/sensitive skin for reference) This product is meant to leave you with “glowly bright skin” and is a mix of retinol and vitamin C. TEA🤡: What really gets me about this is the name was ORIGINALLY “Truly Organic” and have since changed their name to “Truly” after many found they are truly NOT organic. Super misleading of all their products. This product on Ulta still says *organic but ... I don’t feel comfortable using this anymore since they weren’t honest. I only got it at Marshall’s for $5 because again it looked cute. I did use it once. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone knowing they’ve mislabeled ingredients before 🤢 I totally do not like this product.

Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment This little guy costs $32 which is reasonable at Sephora. It’s meant to detoxify, smooth and balance your scalp. It totally did all those things BUT I’ve used it maybe 4 times and mine is almost gone🙄🙁 So for someone like me with a lot of hair(15+ inches) , I would hope someday they create a larger version. That being said, I have a super sensitive scalp. On a good day my hair is quite wavy naturally- looks as if I just barrel curved it. I’ve been having so many issues with my hair lately ... so this was the first product I really did try almost a year ago. I can’t use much that won’t cause my scalp to be inflamed. I steer clear of so many products and have been having a lot of issues with my hair health in general lately. I feel like when I use this it completely regenerates my hair. I didn’t recognize it the first time I used it and I saw photos. It looked full again (my hair has been falling out and I’m only 21). It was super tedious work for me personally to put into my scalp. I do have so much hair though it is thinning at the top (not severely but enough). It took me about an hour and a half sectioning my hair loss and really rubbing this into my scalp to get results from only the first use. I would definitely recommend this product to everybody, scalp issues or not. I just wish again that it was bigger because I go through it so quickly but the price, in my eyes should be slightly less. It does smell slightly of charcoal and is very cooling to the scalp.

Good lighting on a cool day is a blessing but so is Skincare portion: TATCHA - The Water Cream I was hesitant from the price ($68$) for a moisturizer but when I saw it as a beauty insider gift I had to try it😩 I’m so happy I did. My combo skin soaked it up and I looked so dewy all day long. This was after the first use. I really love the texture, it’s literally like water The mini version I got as a gift is also available for $25 which I find more reasonable but doesn’t make sense when you compare oz with the larger one. I would def recommend this. I honestly cannot give ALL that credit to Tatcha’s water creme because I do normally use DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Antioxidant Face Oil which I’ve always raved about. I felt the water creme just gave my skin that extra healthy glow 🤩 Makeup portion: Now I’ve made another post about my lashes (ty Ilia!) check it out if you’d like ☺️ But the star of my makeup here is truly BITE - French Press Lip Gloss - Dirty Chai I ADORE THIS GLOSS!!! It wasn’t sticky, it wasn’t too thick like most glosses. It stayed on and the shade is just beautiful for my skintone if I say so myself 😂 I’m SO SO SO SAD because Bite Beauty has this baby currently discontinued because they transitioned to fully vegan. I couldn’t even find it in Sephora when their stuff was on sale and to my surprise(and joy) I found it at MARSHALLS OF ALL PLACES!!! Its truly the perfect nude/caramel and I’m praying it comes back. If you guys can find them anywhere I totally recommend you try them, they’re most likely at Marshall’s and they have 6? Other shades which I need to snatch up. Goodluck finding this pretty baby there. If you see any let me know I’ll buy it from you 😭 I would say a dupe to this is probably KYLIE COSMETICS - Literally Lip Gloss don’t be fooled by the ugly photoshopped lip swatch because it is so much prettier than it looks there. Happy shopping 💓

First impressions - I really enjoyed using product! It’s such a unique one too! As you can see, the consistency is quite runny, but it seeps into your skin during application and in seconds, you’ll start to see the dry skin pill up. I think next time I will use a bit more of the product - I wasn’t expecting it to sink into the skin; I thought it would more sit on top of the skin, but it doesn’t. It’s very easy to wash off; there is no residue left behind at all - just clear, fresh, glowy skin! 🌟 And I’m happy to report that there is NO strong scent in this product; if you’re familiar with Huda Beauty products then you’ll know a lot of their products are heavily scented, so I was skeptical about this product because I don’t care for a lot of fragrance or scents in my skincare. I haven’t researched into whether this is completely fragrance free or not yet though! HUDA BEAUTY - Wishful Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub

Skin Care Done Right!!
Skin Care Done Right!!
My favourite Skin Care Morning Routine at the moment" Skin care & skin prep is so important especially if you want to have beautiful makeup application. I am someone that struggled with knowing what products are right for my skin & what products I should try out! I was able to see some amazing recommendations from Cherie & these are my absolute favourites this winter cold season. I start off my cleansing my face in the shower with the @farmacy Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser. I then go ahead and tone my face using the Waterfall Gentle Tonic Toner. Its so gentle and doesn’t leave your skin feeling dehydrated. I then went ahead off camera and dermaplane my face to remove dead skin & baby hairs. Now with a clean fresh face- without dead skin we go ahead and apply the Serum. My favourite at the moment is the @Esthederm intensive Hyaluronic serum. This is perfect to bring that initial moisture into the skin. The hyaluronic acid instantly targets dehydrated skin and plumps up the fine lines & wrinkles. Then to moisturize I use the @Ethederm intensive Hyaluronic cream. I love how this feels on my skin & Instantly feel hydrated and awake. For eye cream we will be using the @farmacy Cheer Brightening Vitaminc C Eye Cream with Acerola Cheery. The Vitamin C helps brighten and help the appearance for dark circles and wrinkles. I personally like how hydrated it makes my under eyes feel. Then I will be going on with the @fourthraybeauty Strawberry Face milk- its strawberry seed oil, almond milk, marshmallow & lotus flower. The flower formula will supplement and condition the skin. Summer Fridays Jet Leg Mask- you guys know this is my ABSOLUTE favourite mask & primer duo! It is great for dehydrated skin & check out my previous post for more of my favourite ways to use it! INSTITUT ESTHEDERM - Intensive Vitamin E² Serum INSTITUT ESTHEDERM - CRÈME INTENSIVE HYALURONIC FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask INSTITUT ESTHEDERM - INTENSIVE HYALURONIC SERUM Fourth Ray - STRAWBERRY FACE MILK Lastly , you have to take care of your lips!!My favourite right now is the Vasanti Cosmetics Hyaluronic Lip plumper in clear. It moisturizes your lips and leaves them so plump and supple.

Ingredient spotlight: rice powder
Ingredient spotlight: rice powder
Tatcha’s rice polish is a newer product to me, but one I’ve really been liking lately. I think it’s a great alternative to harsher physical scrubs because honestly, this does not feel abrasive at all. The key ingredient ground rice bran, which as you can see from the photo results in a fine powder. You pour a little bit into the palm of your hand and mix with a few drops of water, and it somehow transforms into a creamy foam that feels heavenly on the skin. It also has enzymes that provide mild chemical exfoliation. It claims to prep skin for makeup and reduce fine line and hyperpigmentation. This product feels very luxurious to use, but I don’t think I’ve seen any dramatic results from it. It does make my face feel very soft, but I haven’t noticed any change to my hyperpigmentation. I think it’s a really neat product as I had never used a powder-to-foam exfoliant before, and I don’t know if any other products that use rice bran in this way. This product is $65 for just over 2oz. You do only need a tiny bit for each use, and if you use it a few times a week, this tub should last a long time. However, I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing because at that price point, I’d like to see some more noticeable change in my hyperpigmentation.

Urban Outfitters gifted me the Freck BEAUTY - CHEEKSLIME LIP + CHEEK TINT WITH PLANT COLLAGEN in the shade Cuffed and omg, I can’t stop using it! You would have to rip this off my cold, death hands because it’s just too good. It definitely reminds me of Glossier’s cloud paint in texture and wear time, and they’re in about the same price range I believe so not really a ‘dupe’ but just a similar product by a similar brand. The shade cuffed is a warm, peachy shade that o really love on my skin tone. It’s formulated with plant collagen to help skin look plump and healthy and blends so well! It’s easy to accidentally over apply it since it’s also very pigmented so I like just doing a small dot on each cheek and blending it in with a brush or sponge. Overall I think it’s a beautiful product and I definitely recommend it ✨
