Temporary Products (MIGHT WORK FOR YOU)
As I stated before in my previous post this is something that had worked for me temporarily! im used to having to switch everything i use because my body gets immune to things fast. UrbanSkin - It comes with 2 exfoliating padd & i absolutely LOVEEEE it 5 stars. I can say I noticed a difference after the first use ! I wish my skin didnt get so used to products bc i recommend this to everybody Sunday Riley- Another 5 star product if it wasnt for me now using MdAcne i’d still use this, but too much acidity is NOT good for your skin ! especially bc MdAcne makes your skin peel Cetaphil- ill rate it a good 3 stars bc I think it just wasnt for me.. I have combination skin & an oily t-zone.. it felt good for my dry cheeks but emphasized my t-zone
SUNDAY RILEY POWER COUPLE
I’m loving this. I know some people have said they don’t like it but like I always say everyone’s skin is different. All skin reacts differently and my skin is LOVING THIS DUO. So, I’m not gonna talk about “Good Genes” because I do have a post already dedicated to it. Just know I’m obsessed. This duo is definitely a power couple 💙🤍 Now for the Luna night oil, it absorbs so easily. It does have a light fragrance, at first I didn’t know if I was a fan but it has grown on me forsure. It’s really helped with my fine lines on my forehead as well as softening my smile lines. I like to pat it on my face first, let as much absorb into the skin on its own, and then I rub in what’s left :) Sometimes when I rub things in, I feel like it’s more on my hands rather than my face. I dunno, I think about weird things like that haha :) Pat first, rub later ☺️ If you love this info, please like this post. ❤️ PSA: 🚨🚨🚨 DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE PREGNANT DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE BREASTFEEDING USE SUNSCREEN SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Retinol Sleeping Night Oil WHAT IS IT? A next-generation retinol oil that boosts the look and feel of skin plumpness, while improving the appearance of wrinkles, redness, and pores for visibly younger-looking skin. DIRECTIONS: Apply 3-4 drops at night, to clean, dry face. Luna goes from blue to clear when massaged into the skin. MAIN INGREDIENTS TRANS-RETINOL: Belongs to a class of chemical compounds termed retinoids, it's the potent ester of all-trans retinoic acid. Helps fight the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, promote skin elasticity, and stimulate exfoliation for clearer, smoother skin. Not appropriate for use during pregnancy. BLUE TANSY, GERMAN CHAMOMILE, AND CAPE CHAMOMILE ESSENTIAL OILS: Deep blue-green oils, rich in potent azulene. Wonderful for soothing the look of surface redness. AVOCADO SEED OIL: Great for plumping fine lines. Rich in anti-aging vitamins B,C,D,E, and A. CHIA SEED OIL: Richest botanical source of Omega 3. Powerful source of ALA, which helps minimize the appearance of lines.

Best product for dry and dull skin
I've been still using my CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser and of course it's going great! I've been looking for something that can give me a glow and also reduce my acne scars so I found The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution this really have my skin a boost of glow and gave me a clearer skin. I do see my acne scars fading away but they are still visible 🙃 Since this is an acid it exfoliates the skin so I use this every other day but now I switched to every two days since the weather is getting cold and my skin tends to dry more. After application in padding motion with a cloth or cotton pad I start to pat in the product with my hands so the product could get into my skin. You will feel a tingle but after constant use you will get used to it and it goes away fast. Once I applied the toner I go in with my moisturizer, at the moment I'm using Vaseline - Extremely Dry Skin Rescue Lotion this creme is great for dry skin! I have always suffered from dry skin so this really helped me. It leaves my skin so soft and glowy. Be careful because this can get a little greasy 😶
Cleansing oil, kose it or loose it?
KOSE COSMEPORT - SOFTYMO Speedy Cleansing Oil This bit$& let me down. I had high hopes. This product did not clean off make up as well as it claimed and I didn’t see any added benefits to my pores, skin, anything. I used the product for a month and nope nothing..... It has a weird olive oil scent which in all tranparency made me a bit nauseous🤢 TMI and it didn’t pair well with a hyluranic acid cleanser CeraVe - Hydrating Face Cleanser For Normal To Dry Skin I usually like to start with a cleansing oil then a foam cleanser. The oil also blocked pores and wasn’t fun to use. Also if you have CYSTIC acne I wouldn’t suggest this. And if you are having a bad day this kinda makes it worse in other words. If you are under a lot of stress(about to get real here) it doesn’t pair well with tears lol yes. The back story of this is that college life and relationships get to us. And an important face wash and moisturizer in my opinion take away stress from the face. However, the PEACH & LILY - Power Calm Hydrating Gel Cleanser that I switched to seemed to be sufficient enough for cleaning my skin and giving my skin a good protective barrier, however, if I put on my full face of make up then I need something to take away my powdered donut, so TATCHA - The Deep Cleanse Exfoliating Cleanser is unreal, how much grime, and make up it will take off with such a small amount. But for a cheaper alternative CeraVe - Hydrating Cream-To-Foam Cleanser but for this you should follow up with an exfoliant. I personally, have dry skin at the moment without makeup, so I have to be careful what I use because a lot of products strip everything from my skin. Okay lastly, I personally believe oil cleansing before a foam cleanser is not for everyone. Because I have seen some people have great success and me not so much. But in my experience learning how to exfoliate and cleanse your face is key. And truly understanding your face is key. I’m other words, focus on what your face needs. I feel that face masks twice a week that are for My SKIN conditions are vital to a nice well rounded well shall we say just great looking skin and let me just last note that this is too cool for school - Pumpkin 24K Gold Mask a holy of holy grails. This was incredible! Incredible! Incredible. Treat yourself and find relaxation you deserve it..

My favorite serums- Vitamin C edition
Vitamin C serums are hard. You need to find a good one thats stable, has good packaging to maintain the stability, and you have to be able to recognize when its oxidized. I’ve found some great vit c serums that you need to use up right away- and some that are a bit more stable. L-ascorbic acid is the most unstable form of vitamin c, and all of these serums contain that ingredient. Probably the best two in terms of stability are the VICHY - LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Anti-Aging Ampoules and NEOSTRATA - Vitamin C Concentrate as they are single use products encapsulated in a single use packet like a capsule (neostrata) or an ampoule (vichy). Technically, VICHY - LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Anti-Aging Ampoules is a two-use product as you’re supposed to use half an ampoule during the day and the other half at night, but thats still a good way to keep the product stable. These ahould be stored in the dark to maintain their stability as well. I have to say I favour the Neostrata one because of the texture. Its such a silky texture, it doesnt feel liquidy like the rest, which my oily skin lovesss. OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum has an opaque package so light wont be able to get through, keeping the product stable for longer. It is naturally orange/yellow due to the banana powder in the product to immediately brighten the skin, so its hard to tell if its oxidized, but with its type of packaging, and if you use it up right away (no rotation) you should be good. three ships - Dew Drops Mushroom Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Serum is a natural product source of vitamin c. The l-ascorbic acid content is from the kakadu plum making this product more stable as the vit c source is a plant extract and not the unstable chemical itself. I do have a coupon code to allow you to save 20% on their products- Three Ships is an amazing natural skincare brand! Enter LEENA20 at checkout! Lastly, VIVIER - Radiance Serum has the most stable formula- wirh vitamin e and ferulic acid to help keep the vitamin c in its most stable form, and its stored in a black bottle, keeping light from penetrating. It comes out as a clear serum, so itll be easy to detect oxidization. If used up right away, you should be good too. #cheriepartner
my daily line up
Not Listed face VICHY - Mineralizing Thermal Water Spray Rich in 15 Minerals and VICHY - LiftActiv Specialist Peptide-C Anti-Aging Ampoules body Neutrogena - Fragrance-Free Hydro Boost Body Gel Cream Overall this handful of products keeps me moisturized and clear. The La Roche Posay cleansing bar has niacinamide and keeps my tone even and acne at bay. I love it. If I use a serum, no matter how long I wait for it to absorb if I apply sunscreen there is so much piling :(!! the sunscreen on it's own it's good though, just have to use it on a naked face! I usually have Neutrogena - Neutrogena Hydroboost Water Gel Moisturizer on hand, it makes my cheeks soo plump and have never been able to get them plump without it. I tried this Vichy version and it makes my face have a different type of feel that is also satisfying. i went on a whim and ordered a big haul off the Vichy website when I needed some vitamin C. I dont regret my haul! order arrived quickly and does the trick. for reference, I have soft water in my house and combo skin. oily TZone, normal, and acne prone. I'm 25. looking for an exfoliant!! any recommendations?!?

Hmm help? Advice ? Lol
Hey everyone , So I’ve been sorta breaking out, well right now in the photos it’s been healing you can say 😅 but I was hoping if anyone else has an other suggestions I’m open to all recommendations! The last few days I’ve been using Morning : CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser CeraVe - AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 Night : CeraVe - Acne Foaming Cream Cleanser CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion I’ve seen little by little improvement but hopefully it gets better ! Fingers crossed 🙂
accutane (isotretinoin) treatment PM routine
This routine has been working for me! If you refer to my last post my skin has definitely cleared up a lot over the course of 2 months while on accutane. I’m case you are unfamiliar to accutane, it is a medication that is only prescribed to severe acne cases. I take the pills twice a day along with birth control (since Accutane can cause birth defects). While on accutane your skin can get super dry, so I have to moisturize a lot. This contrasts with how extremely oily my skin was before. I don’t know what to put for skin type but I will put everything I guess haha. Also my skin is pretty sensitive and gets irritated easily by certain products so I am super please that these products are very gentle and non irritative. I only recently introduced that last eye cream into my routine because of the sleepless nights college has wonderfully provided 🥳 But I haven’t used it consistently enough to judge it, so I will come back to review that another time. But it is a part of my routine, new or not, so I felt the need to include it. CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser I already reviewed this product in my first post but I’ve only grown to love it’s gentleness even more. It’s a classic and it’s got a great texture and easy to use. I would recommend this to anyone going on Accutane or with very dry skin already 10/10. RATA & CO. - Rose Water & Witch Hazel Facial Mist Toner I think I gave this a lower review last time but I think that was because I was using this while rotating pure witch hazel in. I learned from one of you guys that witch hazel can be irritating. Now i know this product still has witch hazel but I think it’s mostly rose water because it’s just so refreshing and I feel like it reduces inflammation and redness. Especially after washing my face. CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum I LOVE THIS!! If you see my last post, my acne scars have been saying bye bye 👋🏼 and I thank this serum for these results. CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Boring but a classic and it gets the job done ✅ ESTĒE LAUDER - Free Revitalizing Supreme Plus Crème Deluxe With Brand Purchase Like I said, it’s too early to judge but it has a nice smooth texture. Don’t get it in your eyes like me though 🤦🏻♀️that stuff burns

Super affordable and great quality! Medik8 - Clarifying Foam LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Ultra Face Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin Aesop - Chamomile Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The glycolic toning solution is a little harsh on sensitive or skin that’s angry and reactive and thus I only use this every other night and ensure I moisturise well and limit the actives! This ensures my skin doesn’t get too Irritated and I still achieve the clear/glowy results! Really great but quite harsh! Aesop mask Really enjoyable calming mask that visibly reduces my breakouts inflammation. You only need a little each time! Medik8 clarifying foam cleanser Super gentle yet effective cleanser, feels like nothing on the face however does a great cleanse! Refreshing feel. La Roche posay Super lightweight and extremely calming moisturiser amazing for irritated or sensitive skin! Super hydrating yet non oily and lightweight. Sits well on the skin and mixes well with various serums! Only complaint is the size (40ml)

Derm-Approved Routine for Acne and/or Aging!
I have sensitive, combination skin with post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, eczema, and hormonal acne, which led me to reach out to Apostrophe to see an online dermatologist. I was prescribed tretinoin, which doubles as both a stellar topical treatment for acne and the gold standard in anti-aging! To go along with my retinoid, my derm suggested simple products that center on hydration and respecting the skin barrier, plus avoiding skin triggers like fragrance and essential oils. They worked wonderfully for me and I experienced a lessening of acne and PIH, until stress and COVID mask-wearing got in the way. But I’ve noticed over the last 4.5 months that the few fine lines plaguing my forehead/mouth have all but disappeared, with blemishes resolving more quickly than they had previously. I’d definitely recommend these products for those that want to keep their skincare as simple (but effective) as possible and/or those that have “tried it all”! • Gentle Cleanser: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser and CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser are fantastic cleansers! Harsh surfactants can remove not only the day’s grime and makeup, but they can easily strip your skin of skin-friendly lipids that nourish your skin barrier. Respect your skin barrier by utilizing gentle surfactants and humectants. • Prescription Retinoid: Apostrophe 0.05% Tretinoin + 4% Niacinamide Lotion ★★★★★ is absolutely wonderful for topically treating acne and/or preventing signs of aging. It’s not harsh at all when used 1-3 times per week, my skin easily adjusting with minimal peeling/irritation. Tretinoin is a retinoid, increasing cellular turnover and reducing sebum production, while niacinamide at 4-5% has been shown to not only reduce sebum production but also reduce the occurrence of acne breakouts. • Simple Moisturizer: You can’t go wrong with a simple, nourishing moisturizer after a retinoid! CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion is fantastic, starring humectants like glycerin and sodium hyaluronate alongside skin barrier-supporting ceramides and cholesterol. The inclusion of niacinamide makes it additionally soothing! I also love stratia - Liquid Gold and NATURIUM - Plant Ceramide Rich Moisture Cream • Occlusive Balm: CeraVe - Healing Ointment is the key to my zero-peeling tretinoin journey! Using this as a spot treatment kept my skin delightfully soft and moisturized, as occlusives form “breathable seals” to hold in water. • Sunscreen: Just use sunscreen. Every day, reapplied every two hours. elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 is the one my derm recommended and I love it- check out PURITO - Comfy Water Sun Block for an affordable substitute! #CheriePartner
AM Routine - Dry skin, pores and acne scars
1. PAULA'S CHOICE - RESIST Perfectly Balanced Foaming Cleanser obsessed with this cleanser 2. BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lotion P50 I have read a lot about the magic of this product, I think it works well but haven’t seen the amazing results people describe. Smell is strong but you get used to it 3. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Niacinamide Booster just started this AM/PM but like it so far, some acne scars have lessened 4. CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Radiance Serum don’t see any changes with incorporating the product, but the smell is fresh and the consistency is light 5. PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster this is really helping clear my skin 6. Avène - Skin Recovery Cream I’ve tried thousands of moisturizers and this is my favorite. It goes on super light, soaks in quickly and has no smell. Highly recommend 7. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 60 Face Sunscreen for Combination Skin SPF 60 usually sunscreens break me out but this one has been relatively innocuous. It also sets in rather quickly. Can sometimes leave a white-ish residue so need to blend in well
PAULA'S CHOICE-10% Azelaic Acid Booster
Morning routine for bright and glowy skin
Me last year = lots and lots of breakouts. Me now = still very acne prone BUT got a hold of it and now I want to target acne scars, get glowy skin and avoid any future flare ups. My morning and evening routines are fairly different. In the evening, I do a double cleanse and use products like my benzagel face wash to reduce the chances of getting acne and mix up a couple different products such as acids or retinol depending on what my skin needs. But in the morning I try to go for a hydrating and brightening routine that will help me reduce my pesky acne scars and make me look glowy and more awake! I also love this routine because most products are from the drugstore. Products: CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser This is great for the morning. It’s gentle, hydrating and won’t strip the skin. Definitely worth your money. I'm from - Rice Toner Loving this toner for the morning to help keep my skin plump and bright. This is one of products that I depend on to gently fade my acne scars and overall brighten my whole face. Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum I’m not quite ready to give a full review on this yet, but so far, so good! This serum has a higher percentage of vitamin c (10%) than the latest one I was using and also vitamin e and ferulic acid. Overall, skin is glowy and it’s not irritated at all, so I’m happy. THE inkey LIST - Caffeine Eye Cream Keeps eyes hydrated, helps de-puff, all good in my books. HONEST - Hydrogel Cream So excited to put up a full review about this product, but overall, great ingredients that keep skin moisturized and I love how glowy it makes my skin look in the morning. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid SPF 50 Light-weight, good protection, no white cast and also helps give skin a little glow in the morning. Super happy with this purchase so far. Thought of the day: I had been doing a water cleanse in the morning for the last few months but recently read that it wasn’t the best idea. So I’ve started to use this gentle cleanser from Cerave for now. My skin seems to be liking it so far! Does anyone else do a water cleanse in the AM?

Fungal acne routine & getting rid of it forever!
I’ve struggled with malassezia Folliculitis/fungal acne for 6 months.My skin’s improved but you do need patience! Now I breakout occasionally, have redness and pigmentation. Disclaimer: Everyone’s different & this is what I’ve learnt. Leave suggestions below! Treatments: I ruined my gut health and ended getting constant yeast infections which links to malassezia as both are overgrowths of fungus/yeast! I recommend an anti-candida diet. Celery juice, apple cider vinegar in water, probiotics and supplements to boost my immune system all helped. I used Folliculitis scout to search for malassezia-safe products. I’ve used other websites and tbh some of them aren’t accurate or their recommended products broke me out. Every oil (except squalane & MCT), fatty acids and lipids is used by malassezia to grow! Once you eliminate these (which is hard), you can use glycerin or amino acids in your skincare routine and makeup bc they need oil, lipids or fatty acids for malassezia to grow off them. Skin barrier health and moisture is important. Don’t use too many treatments bc your skin will just get sensitive, dry and produce more oils. Also the Nizoral shampoo will ruin your skin barrier even if it kills malassezia off. There are other ways to treat it! Skincare routine: Morning: Benton - Deep Green Tea Toner green tea extract inhibits and combats malassezia. It’s a soothing and moisturising toner/essence. It’s antibacterial properties can target other types of acne too. skinstitut - Vitamin C 100% mix w/moisturiser for pigmentation/scarring Like I'm Five - All Day Soothing Gel Lotion I LOVE THIS. It has xylitol that combats malassezia, glycerin and hyaluronic acid as humectants and panthenol for healing. It’s on iherb for 12 AUD too! A steal! The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane squalane has helped my skin go from oily to normal, hence stopping your skin from over producing sebum where malassezia grows. elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 have had a hard time finding a good sunscreen this is one of the few malassezia safe sunscreens. Helps with hyper pigmentation. Nighttime: BIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water have tried others and always go back to this. Tried MCT oil, it’s malassezia-safe but oil cleansing is time consuming for me personally. ETUDE HOUSE - Soon Jung, pH 6.5 Whip Cleanser I’ve tried vanicream but this massively changed my skin. facetheory - PoreBright Serum N10 only use on problem areas 2x a week. Salicylic & azelaic combats malassezia. Or AZCLEAR - Medicated Lotion Benton - Deep Green Tea Toner Like I'm Five - All Day Soothing Gel Lotion The Ordinary - 100% Plant-Derived Squalane
ETUDE HOUSE- Soon Jung, pH 6.5 Whip Cleanser
review my morning routine!
Hi guys! Here’s my core skincare routine for most mornings. I’ll throw in extra products or swap some out according to my skin’s needs, but this is it about 90% of the time because consistency is key to seeing results. My current concerns are acne and post-acne red marks, as well as dryness from tret. 1. I cleanse with Dewy·er - Spirulina Face Wash . I got this because it’s touted as a miracle product for hormonal acne, and while I really like it, it’s not enough on its own to tackle my hormonal acne on my jawline. It lathers very well and doesn’t leave my face dry or tight, though. 2. Next I use PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator . I love this for gentle, everyday exfoliation and blackhead control. 3. LilyAna Naturals - Vitamin C Serum is my favorite vitamin C serum—it’s affordable, effective, and doesn’t smell like hot dog water! It also has vitamin E and hyaluronic acid. 4. I use Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel on the days I have a few pimples I need to get rid of fast. BUT note that if I use this, I don’t use the vitamin C because benzoyl peroxide oxidizes vitamin C and makes them both ineffective. 5. I moisturize withPAULA'S CHOICE - Omega+ Complex Moisturizer , the only moisturizer that’s been able to actually get rid of my flaky tret skin. I love this stuff! 6. Last, I protect with PURITO - Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+ , the only sunscreen I’ll ever purchase for the rest of my life. Seriously, the hype is real. What do you guys think? I’m happy to talk more about any of these products or my routine as a whole!
PURITO-Centella Green Level Unscented Sun SPF50+
My (Less Than Perfect) Morning Skincare Routine
First off, I love this gentle cleanser in the morning. It’s gentle enough for my sensitive skin. I’ve switched to a different cleanser for night just to help get the rest of my makeup off, but this is perfect for when I have sleepy skin. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser I’m not in love with this vitamin C serum. Granted, I haven’t been using this for too long, but I’m concerned with how long the effects might last in the bottle. On a positive note, the smell reminds me of Froot Loops! DERMA•E - Vitamin C Concentrated Serum I do love this moisturizer! It’s great for any skin type, but especially great for people with dry skin. There’s no scent or fragrance to it and it’s not overly priced! The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA Honestly, I’ve used better sunscreens. With this, I need to wait a good 5-10 minutes after applying my moisturizer to apply this sunscreen. If I put it on too soon, it will pill up and roll off my skin, making my routine last much longer than it should. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 60 Face & Body Melt in Sunscreen Milk SPF 60 Any suggestions would be appreciated! 💖

daily skin care routine 🧚🏼♀️✨🍒
so this is my first post !! i’m so excited i found this beauty community !! a little about my skin,,, i have oily, sensitive, acne prone skin, with a bit of eczema so i’m always weary to try new products in fear of a reaction. i’ve had acne for 7 years now and have tried every product under the sun,, but nothing seemed to work for me. but this quarantine has given me so much time on my hands i’ve been able to do a bunch of research on ingredients and different products. but i’ll get right into the review & my opinion on these products :)) 1) CeraVe - Renewing SA Cleanser For Normal Skin i really like this cleanser because it is super gentle on both the skin and acne, and i can actually feel it soothing my face when i wash with it. it doesn’t lather a whole lot and my face doesn’t feel stripped or dry after using it. i don’t use a full pump either, just half works for me. it has helped soothe some irritation and redness in my skin. 2)The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% this product or ingredient even isn’t something i had heard of until i really started getting into skin care but it is totallyyy underrated. i feel like not many people know how amazing this product is for so many skin concerns. i have a lot of hyperpigmentation and redness and this has helped calm my skin down a wholeee lot. i don’t look like a complete tomato without makeup now. my scars and pigmentation are starting to fade and my face just feels so much less irritated. definitely one of my holy grail products. 3)The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA okay so this isn’t one of my favorite products in the world, but it gets the job done. i’m actually just using this until my new moisturizer arrives in the mail. this product is a bit thick but does a good job of moisturizing. i just prefer a lighter consistency. it doesn’t make me oily at all, even after 12 hours of wear. i don’t hate it, but i’m not in love with it either. 4)CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum now i would like to say that the general population is completely misled about retinol. it is marketed as an anti-aging product, which it does, but was originally developed to treat acne ! this is the very first retinol i have ever used and i started about a week & a half ago. even with this little time it’s been used, it has helped my acne sooo much. all of my pimples have gotten smaller, my texture has smoothed out dramatically, and it’s even changed my skin from oily to combination. i am in love with this product so far and i can’t wait to see more results in the weeks to come. definitely my holy grail !! (I only use this at night) 5) PURITO - Comfy Water Sun Block something every skin care fanatic needs and should use everyday is a good sunscreen. as an oily-skinned gal, i was less than thrilled when i found out as sunscreen usually just made me an oily mess. but this sunscreen is great !! absorbs quickly with no white cast. works great under makeup too.
