Affordable and Effective Skincare Anyone?

Let’s talk The Inkey List. I’ve been hearing about this brand for MONTHS and never really paid much attention, until recently. I started seeing people I really trust enjoying a lot of their products and thought, hm, maybe there is something to this. So, I asked the company for a skincare routine for me based on my type of skin and concerns. So far, these are the products I’ve tried from the routine and my thoughts. I’ve been incorporating 1 new product per week but I started with the basics all together, so the Bakuchiol, Brighten-i Eye Cream, Salicylic Acid Cleanser, and Hyaluronic Acid serum have been in rotation for about a month at this point and were the first 4 products I used together. Next I incorporated the PHA Toner, and lastly was the Vitamin C serum. •Bakuchiol - I like this a lot. It sinks right in and doesn’t leave a residue, but it isn’t quite hydrating enough for me. I do think I’ll need to incorporate an oil on top, but I don’t mind. The only negative I have with this so far is the packaging. I hate this packaging. The product is too thin for this kind of tube. •Brighten-i Eye Cream - I’ve seen nothing crazy with this, but I don’t see anything crazy with any eye cream. I do like this a lot though and I like the applicator. •Hyaluronic Acid - this feels very nice on the skin. It feels velvety on the skin and soaks right in for me. It leaves no residue and I’ve been enjoying it. I don’t know that it’s helping much with keeping my skin hydrated though. •PHA Toner - I think I’m liking this a lot. I feel like it’s helped my texture and made my face feel softer. It doesn’t seem to be causing any issues, but I think it is a little drying for me. A heavier moisturizer would solve this problem, I think. •Vitamin C Serum - I’ve only been using this for a little over a week and I’m uncertain about it. I do not like the smell and and it leaves my skin EXTREMELY sticky initially. Like, I could stick a spoon to my face and it would probably stay, sticky. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to linger and sinks in after a few minutes. Even if there is a teensy bit of tackiness if I get impatient, after putting on a moisturizer it’s gone. •Salicylic Acid Cleanser - I feel like this does work well and is very gentle. It doesn’t irritate my skin or feel drying, so I really like it. It seems to help with blackheads a lot and with any active breakouts I have, so I’ve definitely been enjoying it.

Product Mentioned
out with the old, in with the new: HA
HYALURONIC ACID! I’m sure you’ve heard about it. It’s a strong humectant that draws water to the surface of your skin, it retains over 1000 times its weight in water, etc. The first time I tried a hyaluronic acid serum was with The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 . I’d describe it as ok. I know so many people love it and swear by it, but for me, it was just mediocre. It didn’t really keep my skin plump and sometimes it got sticky even when I applied on damp skin. It didn’t make my skin worse, but I just didn’t see a lot of benefit to it. I actually couldn’t wait to finish it up so I could move on to THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum . I’ve only been using this for a day but I already like the texture of this so much better. It seriously makes my skin feel so hydrated without it being sticky. The application of this serum is a little harder than The Ordinary one, but I don’t mind that. Overall, I think this product works a lot better for my skin than The Ordinary one. I’m so excited to continue using this!

Perfect product for HYDRATION!
THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Serum product that I’ve been loving is their gentle hyaluronic acid serum that ensure skin is hydrated for healthy looking skin. ⁣ this contains 2% pure hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate and matrixyl 3000™ peptide that reduces appearance of fine lines while plumping skin.⁣ ⁣ this product keeps my skin nice, plump and hydrated! it’s a basic HA serum, with watery and easy to spread texture. no tackiness or sticky feeling when applied to the skin. it mixes well with other products too, I always pair this with a thick serum and my skin becomes more hydrated. I highly recommend this product if you’re looking to add a boost of hydration for your skin. 💦

The Inkey List: A Quick Look
I appreciate The Inkey List for being an affordable and pretty effective brand. Here are brief overviews of the products of theirs that I have tried. If you’d like more in depth reviews on these products check out my other posts! I’ve either already posted the review or will be doing so soon. THE inkey LIST - 15% Vitamin C and EGF This is a mildly effective vitamin c serum and a good product for the price. It would be good for someone wanting to introduce a vitamin c serum into their AM routine. THE inkey LIST - Apple Cider Vinegar Acid Peel I think this is a good exfoliating acid treatment if you have dry or sensitive skin. If those are not your concerns, though, this may not give you the results you’re looking for. THE inkey LIST - Retinol Eye Cream This is a gentle and hydrating eye cream to use in the PM. For the price I think this is worth it. This helps slightly with dark under eyes and wrinkles. THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm I was very disappointed with this product considering all the great reviews I’ve seen. The product tends to separate in the bottle and either come out as straight oil or a very thick balm. It doesn’t perform well near the eyes or with makeup, but if you don’t wear any makeup and just want to double cleanse, this might be ok. Some things I like about the brand as a whole: ✨ the pricing makes them accessible ✨ percentages of active ingredients are included ✨ clear directions on when to use each product ✨ cruelty free ✨ currently 91% recyclable (committed to being 100% recyclable by 2021) If you have tried these products or have any recommendations please leave a comment!

Vitamin C and EGF
I have loved incorporating a vitamin c serum into my morning routine. Before trying this product by The Inkey List my only other experience with vitamin c was with the Sweet Chef ginger + vitamin c serum shot. While I love the texture of the Sweet Chef serum much more, I believe the Inkey List serum may be a slightly more effective vitamin c serum. THE inkey LIST - 15% Vitamin C and EGF The key ingredient in this product is 15% ascorbyl glucoside (vitamin c) which is a good ingredient for dull skin and fading hyperpigmentation. While ascorbyl glucoside is a known for being a more stable and gentle form of vitamin c, this means it may not be quite as effective as other forms of vitamin c (l-ascorbic acid). If you are looking for drastic results, this may not be for you. If you are looking for a gentle vitamin c serum that won’t cause you a fortune, this is a great product to try! While I enjoy using this product, I have not seen a clear difference in my skin. It is possible that my skin looks less dull, but that may just be a placebo effect for me. Also, the dry down texture and the smell of this product can be slightly off putting. It has a light scent of cleaning supplies with alcohol in it, and once the serum dries down it feels almost grainy on parts of my face. I have been using this serum for a few months, but because I don’t love how it dries on my face I have been occasionally alternating it with the Sweet Chef vitamin c serum. I will continue to use it until I run out, and my no means do I dislike this serum! I’m sure with more consistent use I would have seen better results, but I do believe there are better products out there. If you have tried this product or have recommendations for effective vitamin c serums please leave a comment!

Alternative to Retinol- drug store dupe!
What is Bakuchiol? Pronounced ba-koo-heel, is an extract derived from the leaves and seeds of the babchi plant; a common herb used in Indian Ayurvedic and Chinese medicines. It has anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties which help to heal, calm, and soothe the skin. According to a study in The British Journal of Dermatology, bakuchiol is not only as effective as retinol at targeting fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone; it’s also less irritating. Like a retinol, it triggers skin cells to create several types of collagen that are useful in skin health and anti-aging but unlike retinol it doesn’t causes excess dryness, irritations, and sun sensitivities. Can you use Bakuchiol with retinol? If your skin is sensitive to retinol, Bakuchiol is a perfect alternative. But, if your skin is not sensitive to retinol Paula’s Choice recommended that you use them together. According to Paula’s Choice Skin advice/ Ingredient spotlight— Yes, both ingredients can be used together. “Bakuchiol’s calming and stabilizing properties let retinol work better and increase skin’s tolerance to this well-studied ingredient (1). This duo can make an impressive difference for visible skin concerns like wrinkles, dark spots, and loss of firmness.” ACURE - Radically Rejuvenating Dual Phase Bakuchiol Serum This is a unique ampule with a top layer of antioxidant and probiotic rich essence and the bottom is a moisturizing serum blend of Bakuchiol, Blue Tansy, and Probiotics. All you have to do is shake well, apply a couple of drops on cleansed, toned, skin before moisturizer and oils. It sinks so well into the skin- giving it an extra bit of moisture. And it because it is so gentle I can use it day and night. I honestly didn’t know that it has blue tansy in it! It’s a perfect surprise and I need all the calming and soothing ingredients I can get this winter. I’m not sure if it’s a dupe for any of these other expensive serums below but if you are new to this ingredients and you are in the market for retinol substitute, you can get this $20 serum at Ulta, Sprouts, or Acure.com. Or if you are feeling fancy, can use it along side these serums/ moisturizer HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum THE inkey LIST - Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Moisturizer BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Phyto-Retinol Serum OLE HENRIKSEN - Goodnight Glow Retin-Alt Sleeping Crème Clean product: 🌱No Parabens 🌱No Alcohol 🌱No Sulfates 🌱No Nuts 🌱No Oils 🌱No Silicones 🐰Cruelty Free 🐰 Vegan Have you tried any of these serums or cremes? Let me know your thoughts/ other products I should try below. Thank you! Be Kind, Stay Beautiful.

Beat Acne With This Simple Guide
( This is not my photo but I have tried most of these combos)✨ Comedones: these are flesh or white colored bumps (usually most common) Bakuchoil: gentle alternative for retinol. THE inkey LIST - Bakuchiol Retinol Alternative Moisturizer Azelaic Acid: amazing acid (I just reviewed). Great for acne and pore exfoliating! The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% Granactive Retinoids: lower irritation than retinol (less strength) The Ordinary - Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion (I find using Differin gel can help to but it can be irritating and shouldn’t be paired with other active ingredients) Oil Production: Niacinamide: vitamin B3 that helps with oil production (especially paired with Zinc) The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Bacteria: Bakuchiol Azelaic Acid Inflammation Niacinamide (best as serum) Bakuchoil (best as moisturizer) Azelaic Acid (better in cream form (especially if you have sensitive skin) Granactive Retinol: (better as serum) Remember to always layer from lightest to heaviest! My personal routine for active acne: Morning ☀️ Cleanse Tone Serum (The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% in oil areas) Treat (The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% everywhere) Moisturize Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 30 (great for sensitive skin and when mixing actives) Evening Cleanse Tone Serum (The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% in oily areas) Treat (DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel ) Moisturize CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion mixed with Cliganic - 100% Rosehip Oil ) I have used alternative retinol, but I found my skin to get used to it and I wanted something stronger. If you mix these products together (as suggested by the guide) stick to granactive retinol and using bakuchiol. Less chance to experience irritation.

The gift of good skin!
For Christmas, I made my sister a new skincare routine! She has combo acne prone skin with some sensitivity and redness, she also complained of some dark circles around her eyes. She currently uses terrible products and is pretty lazy when it comes to skincare so she doesn’t even wash her face everyday! I tried to design something simple, affordable, and easy to keep up with (e.g. mostly drug store products) but also an effective starting point for her skin needs! How did I do? AM: Cleanser: OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser Eyes: THE inkey LIST - Brighten-i Eye Cream Moisturizer: Aveeno - Calm + Restore Oat Gel Moisturizer PM: Makeup remover/lazy day cleanser: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Micellar Cleansing Water Ultra and Makeup Remover Cleanser: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanseror CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skindepending on what her skin is doing Eyes: THE inkey LIST - Brighten-i Eye Cream Moisturizer: CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion For dry days or dry patches: CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream Spot Treatments: ORIGINS - Super Spot Remover Acne Treatment Gelor PEACE OUT - Acne Healing Dots Masks: OLE HENRIKSEN - PHAT Glow Facial Maskand YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask

Up close and personal !
As I’m waiting on my new skincare products to arrive as it might take a couple days I just picked up three products from my local Sephora. I was looking for a good oil cleansing balm because I LIVE for the double cleansing method it saved my skin from all that yucky grime. Anyways I picked up the THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm tonight and yes it’s my first day using it but I love how it’s so gentle and soft on my sensitive acne prone skin. I will keep you all updated on it though for the weeks to come. Next I have heard such great things about First Aid Beauty and how they’re known to make products that are specifically for people with sensitive skin so I picked up the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream Safe for Sensitive Skin I AM ALREADY OBSESSED! It is so light on the skin, but at the same time feels like it’s really seeping into my skin and getting what it needs to make my skin barrier nice. I will keep you all updated on it as well. Last I love me a good eye cream, I tried finding the THE inkey LIST - Brighten-i Eye Creambut they were sold out.. so instead I got the THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Creamand I like how it’s light weight as well, but of course we will see a difference hopefully over time. Once the rest of my products come in I will all show you and update you on my skin journey❤️

A quick Cheat guide to choosing the right Acid ✨
I find this Flowchart to be a cheat guide to start with your Chemical exfoliation routin. 😊✨ Exfoliation is one of the steps in your skin care routine that can elevate your current routine from good to great. So often I find my skin starting to feel a little bit dull, and I realize that I have been leaving out exfoliation. When I wake up after a night that I have applied a chemical exfoliant, (I really like The Ordinary’s 7% Glycolic Acid, Sunday Riley's Good Genes) The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment I notice my skin has a much more rested and fresh look. Also, my skin has that 'Glass skin' look and feel. My textural irregularities get even and my skin tone is evened out! Some of the skin concerns that exfoliation is great for targeting include: 🌻Enlarged pores 🌻Uneven skin tone/Hyperpigmentation 🌻Rough skin texture 🌻Fine lines So… back to the big question: ✨What does exfoliate mean? Skin is consistently renewing its cells, by shedding its surface layer. When dead skin cells are flushed away and a fresh layer of cells comes to the surface, the new layer is younger and smoother in appearance. This process is frequent in younger skin, however slows with age. The process of exfoliating is advancing the process of removing dead skin cells and revealing the fresh new layer of healthy skin either physically or chemically. Physical exfoliators are granular, using natural beads or crystals that are rubbed on the skin, sloughing away the dead cells on the top layer of skin. Chemical exfoliants work by targeting the bonds between cells, breaking these bonds, allowing the dead skin cells to break away. Chemical exfoliation is able to penetrate deeper into the skin, targeting congestion that is associated with clogged pores leading to acne. In short exfoliation simply means to shed away dead skin cells with the help of a product. Want to know which exfoliating acids are best for your skin? Follow through the flowchart in Image above to figure out which is best for you! Here are some options/products I love and you can choose from: The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment The Ordinary - Mandelic Acid 10% + HA NATURIUM - BHA Liquid Exfoliant 2% The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque THE inkey LIST - Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner TULA SKINCARE - Pro-Glycolic 10% Resurfacing Toner Allies of Skin - Mandelic Pigmentation Corrector Night Serum

For the love of god please help my skin
One thing I'd like to mention first, please ignore the bright red creasing on the inner corners of my nose, I am legally blind and my glasses are very heavy. okay! so, I've had acne since I was 8-9 years old (approx), it has ranged from cystic, blackheads, pretty much any kind you can get I've probably had or do have. I use acne patches for the really bad ones, but with the amount of acne I get it's not feasible. I use the inky list salicylic acid face wash currently, I tried CeraVe hydrating face wash, but that did horrors to my skin I'm still recovering from. I've also tried the cult fav peel from the ordinary, and their niacinamide 10% with zinc to no avail. I do still use CeraVes day time moisturizer, it doesn't really have any pros or cons for my skin, but also doesn't cause breakouts, right now I use it because it's what I have. Everytime I try using vitamin C my skin breaks out pretty bad which is a shame because I want to clean up the scarring as well. I've used retinols before, they normally work for about a week then what I normally assume is the purge doesn't go away until the product does. (products are listed at the bottom) A lot of my acne is stress based, it noticeably clears up when I'm not in school, but I hate just walking around like this my diet is about as great as any college kids diet, I do eat a lot of protein, and try to keep dairy on the lower side, but not cut out entirely, same with pasta, not much, but not gone. I'm really looking for something that is low on the budget side, but effective. a lot of the products I see are $60-$70 and that's just not practical for what I can afford please help my skin THE inkey LIST - Salicylic Acid Acne + Pore Cleanser CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Target’s Vegan Line Versed
Target’s Vegan Line Versed
As a young adult who finished the peak and still endured acne, I live with a lot of PIH, especially on my cheeks. I have tried for years to find a product that would brighten and even out the dark discoloration but failed every time no matter how long I stuck it out with a product. Strolling through Target months and months ago, I saw a shiny end cap full of pastel colored vegan skincare products. I eventually caved, hoping that there could be a solution for me here. The first product I ever decided to use was VERSED - WEEKEND GLOW - Instant. Game. Changer. Right away I noticed a difference in the appearance of my skin. I used it AM/PM, and quarantine really got me sticking to my routine. After just a week, the dark spots on my cheeks were FINALLY starting to fade, and the texture of my skin was becoming so smooth after previously suffering from tiny little bumps of acne all over my forehead and cheeks as well. After about a month and a half I was confident in this product line and decided to purchase more. VERSED - WASH IT OUT Gel Cleanser VERSED - PRESS RESTART The gel cleanser is so gentle and easy to use. Usually being on the dry side, this product doesn’t leave me feeling stripped and does a pretty damn good job at getting off my makeup. The light minty scent is just an invigorating bonus! I really wanted to LOVE the retinol serum, which is super easy to apply. Hydrating, NO red burning and flaking skin which I’ve previously gone through, but definitely yields similar results when it comes to purging acne and resurfacing skin. Ultimately, this product was not for me, but it is definitely a contender for other people’s skin concerns. I look forward to trying more products from Versed as their line grows. If you’ve been considering a purchase but haven’t plunged in, I absolutely recommend it.

KEY TO GLOWY SKIN 🤩 🌟✨
KEY TO GLOWY SKIN 🤩 🌟✨
the pixi glow tonic is a toner with 5% glycolic acid. glycolic acid works to get rid of the dead skin cells on top of your skin to reveal brighter, glowing skin. WHAT SKIN TYPE IS THIS FOR? the pixi glow tonic is good for all skin types! there’s no alcohol in this toner making it great for people with dry/combination skin since it won’t dry out your skin. for those of you with sensitive skin, like me, i would use it only once a day either at night or in the morning. i personally use it at night so my skin is fresh in the morning. HOW DO I USE IT? depending on your skin type, the pixi glow tonic can be used two times a day, but i wouldn’t do more than two. for those with sensitive skin, once is good. after cleansing, apply the toner all over your face with a cotton round and make sure to put a little bit of pressure to get the outer dead skin cells. after that, apply your favorite moisturizer! ADDITIONAL NOTES <3 for me, the first time i used it my face was a little bit red, but as i used it more and more my skin got used to it. make sure to moisturize and cleanse day and/or night to get the best results! hopefully this was helpful and get your glowy skin asap!! pixi - Glow Tonic

Toner I’m most thankful for
Toner I’m most thankful for
I'm thankful for this being the first toner I tried out and made me love toning. Thoughts: This wonderful toner I always go back to it in the night time. I feel like it helps me to get the pure cleanse that I need without my skin being stripped. Everytime I use this my skin always looks much more radiant and back to life. I been using this for almost a year and would rotate between using it in the daytime and nightime. During the summer time I used it in my AM routine and I loved how my face would go from oily to soft and supple with the right amount of hydration. During those hot months it always helped maintain my skin clean but with enough nourishment. Now in the winter time, during cold nights, my skin gets the hydration it needs and mainly the healthy glow it craves. Personally this toner is a favorite of mine because it didn’t irritate my skin, break me out and wasn’t harsh on me. I saw instant results when I first applied it and how my skin could look every day (Glowy and alive) I’m glad I decided to try it it out after seeing all the hype about it on instagram. Claims: it’s gentle for all skin types to exfoliate, brighten and smooth skin Targets: Dullness and impurities Texture: It is a orange liquid consistency almost like water with soap. Price: $16 and definitely worth buying when you need something gentle yet effective to help achieve glow and hydrated skin in seconds. Recommendation: Yes, I think anyone would enjoy this. I highly recommend this to anybody with any type of skin if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients, of course. Some ingredients: Aloe to help soothe and hydrate Ginseng to improve circulation and energize 5% of Glycolic acid to exfoliate Cruelty free 🐇 pixi - Glow Tonic

the BEST toner for combination skin
the BEST toner for combination skin
all right listen up because ya girl has combination skin through and through and i have found the toner that saves my skin. THE inkey LIST - Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner is absolutely a game changer. this product combats uneven skin tone, dullness, and fine lines/wrinkles. it’s a super light-weight, clear liquid, as you can see from my texture shot! the PHA gently removes dead skin cells, which i love, but the other star ingredients include niacinamide and aloe leaf juice, which makes it super gentle! i use this toner both morning and night for that reason. i’ve been using this toner for 3 weeks and like to apply it with a cotton round and gently patting the product on to my t-zone. that’s where i find i have the most build up, which is why i focus on those areas with this toner. i would recommend this to anyone who struggles with combination skin, and at the price point of $10.99, its hard to find a more affordable option that works this well! i did receive this product in a PR package, but i will absolutely be buying this toner when i run out. The Inkey List is one of my favorite brands because of how affordable it is & how well it works. this product is 5/5 stars in my book and i would recommend it to anyone with combination skin!

Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner
THE inkey LIST-Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) Gentle Exfoliating Toner
If I had more thumbs 👍🏻👏🏻�
If I had more thumbs 👍🏻👏🏻👍🏻I would put those babies up for @somebymi because this has to be my favorite products of 2019. There, I said it. The cleanser, the toner, and the serum combine in such sophisticated manner that left me in shock on day 1. The translation of ‘some by mi’ is attracted by beauty which shows in their products. 🤓 - 💚𝐓𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐫: contains AHA (0.05%), BHA (0.01%), PHA (0.01%), Tea Tree Water (1%), Niacinamide (2%). The texture is watery with a scent of mint (peppermint last ingredient). Absorbs very quickly into skin with a moisturizing effect which is super surprising for me. I HAVE NOT used any other actives for acne because I wanted to see how it works and WOW! The only thing I added is @paulaschoice 2% BHA every other day. The ph being 5.5, I wouldn’t call this an acid toner and percentages are just right for exfoliation. I am absolutely shocked, stunned, and highly recommend this. I recommend especially for acne prone, any type of oily skin. -💚𝐒𝐞𝐫𝐮𝐦: Formulated with tea tree water as well and the inclusion of centella asiatica. This serum is amazing for any type of troubled skin. The dual-layer of plant-based oils that balance moisture is ideal as it exfoliates, moisturizes, and calms inflammation all in one. The dropper is amazing for spot treatments and I’ve actually started using it on any cuts that I have, and it does wonders.

Good Molecules Review 🙌🏻
Good Molecules Review 🙌🏻
Good Molecules Review ✨ . I am one of the lucky people here on instagram to be sent some Good Molecules goodies to try, I am so grateful about their generosity! Just so you know I am now picky or let me say being careful about what I’m going to put on my lovely face 🤣. Then I gave this brand a try and I am really amazed about their products in terms of price point, simplicity and performance ⭐️ . I am not going to be as detailed when it comes to ingredients/formulations of each products. I want this review to be focusing more on my experience! Please don’t be lazy checking their products at beautylish or use google baby! 👨🏽‍💻🤭 . Overnight Exfoliating Treatment - I used this every Wednesday, my skin is used to acids so that means this one is a little bit mild for me. PM routine and the next morning my nose area is much more clearer, that part of my face is prone to black heads. love this because I can just leave it on and follow up with the rest of my routine. Honestly speaking the only one ingredient that bother me is Alcohol Denat, I hope they can remove it in the future 🤐🙏🏼 . Hyaluronic Acid Serum - My skin sits on the dry skin type, always matte looking. So my skin is always thirsty! I tried using this everyday as an added shot of moisture. Surprisingly the name live up to it’s function, my skin’s hydration is a bit leveled up. This is unscented and it did not cause me purging or break out. Highly recommended!! ✨❤️ . Niacinamide Serum - 10% Niacinamide that will help you minimize the apperance of pores? YES! The area around my nose, cheek area is almost looking poreless! You cannot get rid of pores but atleast this product help me made them look smaller. Brightening? Nope, I did not notice it from this. I love this, poreless looking skin is my main goal! Highly recommended, will choose this over the Ordinary 🤷🏼‍♀️ . Niacinamide Brightening Toner - this product has the most reviews online among their other products, it did took away the dullness, specially when there is time that I don’t have enough sleep because of my job, It’s alcohol free, No scent. My skin felt revitalize, healthy looking glow. I love it! ✨❤️
