PRIMER- PORES WHO?
The Primer that broke the internet⚡️ @elfcosmetics. Ft: Luminous Poreless Putty & Poreless Putty. ——————————————- So for the last few months I’ve been going store to store in Winnipeg looking for this primer, NO luck. So I finally decided I needed to make an order online to try these babies out. .✨ My first impression: Amazing! ⚡️. I love the luminous putty. To me it doesn’t chunk up under my foundation and gives me the perfect amount of glow. I did find it’s not as pore blurring as the original but still a new favourite. It has a buttery like texture which feels amazing on the skin. Sheer - poreless putty. I really like how thin and smooth it goes in your skin. This primer is more blurring. This girl needs that, I got some larger pores I want to hide. I really was surprised how amazing my foundation laid on top of it. It gave my skin the perfect blank canvas I need. Overall this is thinner in texture as you can see from my swatches but that doesn’t bug me. Feels light on the skin, does it’s job. ——————————————- Have you tried this line of Primers? If not, what’s your go-to? Let me know your thoughts ⬇️

My Skincare Story: Eczema +
Over the years, I’ve dealt with acne and dry skin, but in the more recent years, nothing has affected me, in terms of my skin, like eczema and the resulting infections!!! Staph anyone? From November 2017 to August 2018, I’ve had bouts of the worst flare ups in my life. Let me just say, that period of time has probably been the hardest period of my life: I got into a car accident, I’ve got into a few gut-wrenching emotional fights with people, and the worst thing of all, my father passed away... while I was still finishing university. I had to miss 2 weeks of classes due to my skin condition because it was painful to move when the eczema was on my body from head to toe 🤕 To say that I was under a lot of stress is an understatement. Eczema is still a pretty mysterious health issue to most, but the health community is being very adamant about finding its different root causes. One thing for sure, it’s definitely not just something that appears on your skin “just because.” I believe that my skin was expressing all of the ways I was feeling. Stress literally compromises the skin barrier with stress hormones like cortisol. It was also hard to take care of myself, I began eating a lot of fried foods, so my gut was impacted by “leaky gut” syndrome where I developed many food sensitivities. Finding some of these answers through research, many appointments with various health professionals, and self exploration, I have hope that eczema isn’t something that I’ll have to deal with forever. Though I still deal with some eczema flare ups from time to time, it’s never completely out of control like the ones displayed in the pictures. I’m still finding ways to heal myself, as it isn’t linear, but in the meanwhile my favourite eczema management product is purO3 - Ozonated Olive Oil (only a 4 ⭐️ because it’s smelly!! I wouldn’t wear this on a date or out n about) Ozonated olive oil is a one-ingredient saviour that has great skin healing properties. It reduces inflammation, kills Staphylococcus aureus infections, and aids in quicker repair of the skin. I start seeing results within days of using it. You can also use this product orally (gum infections), to heal wounds from cuts and bug bites, as spot treatment for acne, etc. It even helps reduce hyperpigmentation scars from eczema and acne!!! 🎉 let’s just say this is my staple, like some would claim coconut oil.
