French Garbage Water! <3

Trying to find skincare products that you feel confident about purchasing is exhausting. That is only intensified when you feel like you’re breaking the bank when purchasing a product. This was actually less expensive than I expected, though it’s high end (at about $65 for 5.1 oz). BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lotion P50 W
is a French product that is a huge cult favorite all over the world. Initially I thought it was a lotion/face cream but it actually has the substance of a toner. You use it directly after cleansing your skin (they often recommend double cleansing). I wasn’t sure what this WAS but I figured out it’s an exfoliating acid toner (not to be confused with a regular toner). The label on the bottle lists one of the active ingredients as “poly-alpha-beta-hydroxy acid complex”, so unless I’m mistaken it’s a mix of PHAs, AHAs and BHAs. So do not use this on days/nights you use retinol. I call it “French Garbage Water” after reading an article (I have no idea which one at this point) where one woman wrote about how effective and wonderful this is but that it’s “smelly”. Honestly, I bought this expecting a big hit to the nose but really it’s quite mild. There’s a slight vinegar smell and a tiny maybe sulphuric scent, but I find SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum
hotdog water scent to be more powerful (though I don’t think that is particularly powerful of bothersome either). I am perfectly fine with mild natural, less pleasant scents than I will ever be with a skincare product - particularly the high-end ones - adding fragrance. That is unforgivable in my book. That said, I found French Garbage Water to be quite charming and continue to refer to it as such. This is my first day and night with it and I’m excited! I’ll write a new review once I can evaluate whether I think it’s beneficial or not. I’ll include a link that explains all about this acid toner below: https://btyaly.com/reviews/review-biologique-recherche-lotion-p50w/?amp

CandyAI have used P50 W for about two years. I use this or a retinol product each night, alternating. A perfect product. You'll love it!

EerieBabeThanks! That’s what my plan is too! I’m glad you told me though, as it can be a little unclear. ❤️

Is it going to be worth the 💸?
I just received this in the mail and I am SO EXCITED! I have heard so many good things about the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum and as I read further about it, the SKINCEUTICALS - Phloretin CF Prevent Serum Antioxidant Treatment seems to be more suited for my oily and acne-prone skin. I will be trying this product and make a review in a month. I hope it is going to be worth the price. 🙃 Have you tried it? Let me know in the comments!

Empty! - Top 5 Exfoliant
BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lotion P50 W Ah the cult classic. An exfoliating treatment, the lighter version of it to get rid of excess yuck on your face like dead skin cells to get baby smooth skin. This helps with almost everything if you want clear and glowing skin! It’s a really nice acid, I like it and was very effective, and therefore I will be repurchasing this whenever I have the money lol 😂 If you have the 💵 I recommend trying it! And if you are looking for a nice exfoliator, then I recommend this! I like many but this is Top 5

You know when you have rough textures and small white bumps mostly on the face, especially around jaw lines. It can be frustrating and can last for weeks even months. Been there! However, there are thankfully some things that can help. Including this Biologique Recherche Lotion!⁣ ⁣I started Lotion P50W about 6 months ago. Then I replaced it with the stronger version, P50. Now let's talk about the gentler one.⁣ ⁣The W version is an acid toner that's intended for sensitive skin. It uses a mix of alpha, beta and poly-hydroxy acids such as lactic acid and gluconolactone to gently exfoliate the skin. The product claims to exfoliate, regulate the skin's pH and hydrate the skin in one product. The formulation also contains skin and sebum regulating agents such as cider vinegar and horseradish.⁣ ⁣ From many reviews, I already expected this toner will be hurt and really potent. So I introduced this product slowly into my routine. I started using this once a week at night for about 3 months in place of my toner and never with any other acid-based products. But it was actually worse than I expected. I felt burning sensation and my skin turned red for the first few weeks using this. The tingly sensation lasted for few minutes. ⁣ ⁣Quick tips: Start using this product with a damp cotton until your skin built up its tolerance. It will makes the whole experience much better!⁣ ⁣A couple drops are all that's need. No swiping or rubbing, just press and release the product into skin moving up from the neck towards ear then forehead. Focused on the areas where there are more pores form. And wait until the formulation dried before applying any other products. It's nice to layer with because it didn't leave any residue on the skin.⁣ ⁣I saw the result on my skin after about two months when my skin already used to it. Right now I feel no burn, no tingle, no redness; it becomes comfortable to use. I feel my breakout are less frequent especially after I used it three times a week. My pores are still there, always visible but they clog up much less than before. As my texture areas are much less apparent, I also notice more radiance on my skin.

The One Serum That Save My Sensitive Skin😝😝
The One Serum That Save My Sensitive Skin😝😝
I have oily and sensitive skin, with dry cheeks and an oily, acne and bump-prone T-zone. This is honestly my all-time favorite skincare product. I used it everty time when my skin is unstable. I should say this product saved my skin!  Feeling: It has a refreshing texture, it's scent-free and it's hydrating, comforting the skin. If I use it during my allergy flares, I'll wake up to rejuvenated skin without any skin redness or swelling. Calming, soothing and moisturizing, it's very suitable for sensitive skin. Its ingredients include: green tea, rice ferment filtrate, and algae. Both green tea and algae are great for acne-prone skin as they help to purify skin and even out skin tone. Directions: After cleansing, pour a small amount onto your palms, then gently pat it onto your face until fully absorbed. TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softeneracts like a toning lotion and also contains ingredients of a serum, so it can replace serums to prepare the skin and boost absorption. You can consider buying this essence if you don't have a serum yet. What is your favorite skincare product?🥰

I finally gave in and tried Biologique Recherche products
I finally gave in and tried Biologique Recherche products
Biologique Recherche Lotion P50T Biologique Recherche Lotion P50 is one of the holy grail products of so many beauty editors, aestheticians, and beauty fans in general. I’ve read so many articles and reviews about the Lotion P50 saying that it smells pretty nasty but it brings wonders to the skin.  During the quarantine period, my aesthetician sent me a list of BR products that will suit my skin condition after describing her how my skin is. Since I have a sensitive dry combination skin, she advised me to buy the gentlest of the Lotion P50 variants- the Lotion P50T. It tingles a bit on my skin as it’s supposed to be, and I apply it day and night using gauze after I cleansed my skin. It feels amazing and my skin definitely feels hydrated. I started using it a week ago and haven’t seen any results yet so I’ll continue with it and report back to you.  Biologique Recherche Collagène Marin Sérum Authentique  This product right here smells like rotten fish but since it’s supposed to tone my face and shrink down my pores, I don’t really mind the smell. Marin is French for ‘marine’ hence the smell of rotten fish lol!  I use it day and night as the first serum I put on my face after the essence. It definitely feels hydrating on my skin but like the Lotion P50T, I’ve been using it for a week now and I haven’t seen any incredible results yet. But one thing I noticed is I don’t have the usual small hormonal pimples I have when I’m due to have my period.I guess this is thanks to the BR products I’m currently using.

katesomervilleskincare kindly
katesomervilleskincare kindly sent me a couple of their new products from their DeliKate line. This line focuses on repairing the skin barrier as bringing damaged or worn out skin back to life! 💜DeliKate Recovery serum- a nice milky serum packed with ceramides, omegas, and cucumber seed oil to quickly restore the skins natural barrier. I’ve been using this serum nightly and really enjoying it. It feels very soothing and calming to my skin! It’s also wonderful for after a day in the sun, the skin drinks it up. 💜DeliKate Recovery Cream- first of all did you even SEE the texture of this cream? It’s seriously divine. Also brimming with ceramides, peptides, and ginger root extract(to reduce redness) this cream is a great addition to your skincare stash. its rich and creamy, Soothing and calming. I did notice a difference in redness of my skin after using this. It can also be used as a hand cream to soothe rough and dry hands from all the hand washing going on!

❌Would definitely not purchase again!😡
❌Would definitely not purchase again!😡
I have combination-dry and sensitive skin. I saw lots of people recommendingSUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatmentand theSUNDAY RILEY - Luna Sleeping Night Oil, both of which are known to effectively reduce bumps and exfoliate our skin, so I bought this set. But I don't really like using them. The Luna Sleeping Oil is a face oil. It is easily absorbed, hydrating, and moisturizing. It has a very convenient dropper and the oil itself is blue. However, it doesn't look blue on your face because it's easily absorbed once applied. It's actually quite effective if you use only the Luna Sleeping Oil as it's easily absorbed. It's moisturizing and it soothes dry skin. But this sleeping oil contains photosensitivity ingredients, so it can't be used in the morning. I don't like using the Sunday Riley Good Genes All-in-One Lactic Acid Treatment as it's so hard to use. It has a bad smell and I haven't seen any results yet. The official website suggested to first use the Luna Sleeping Oil for five minutes until fully absorbed and then follow it with the lactic acid treatment. But the combination becomes pasty and it's not easily absorbed. It even causes acne breakouts after a few days. I saw lots of people suggesting using these two products reversely and I tried that too, but it still became pasty. I will not repurchase this set.

Olivarrier Fluid Oil & Versed Just Breathe
Olivarrier Fluid Oil & Versed Just Breathe
Olivarrier - Olivarrier Fluid Oil * 100% plant-derived Squalane, this fluid oil is made to be similar to human sebum. It claims to protect the skin from dryness and UV rays. And what I love the most about this, and other Olivarrier products, is that it’s non-comedogenic! ✨ Before, I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with oils. I loved how moisturizing they were but I always hated how oily they left my skin. But I have come to realize I just didn’t know how to use oils and I would add too many drops at once. Fast forward to now, I know I can mix oils with other products or apply it alone with just a 2-3 drops. Olivarrier’s Fluid Oil mixes well with other products because it contains no fragrances. It moisturizes well, absorbs quickly, and leaves my skin with a nice natural finish. Definitely one of my favorite oils! VERSED - JUST BREATHE Clarifying Serum . Currently rated 3-stars but may change. This Clarifying Serum contains great ingredients: willow bark extract, zinc blend, and niacinamide which all work together to calm inflammation, decongest pores and soothe redness. I have been using this for a few weeks and have seen no improvements with my acne and pores. Despite that, I cannot say it has not been an enjoyable experience. This product is unscented, absorbs quickly, leaves my skin smooth, and seems to *very minimally* soothe redness. It’s a nice addition to my routine but I may be able to live without it. *gifted
