Fresh beauty kit
The best selling Soy Face Cleanser is my all-time favorite face cleansing gel which gently melts away all the impurities and leaves me clean and refreshing skin. I have been repurchasing this cleanser many times. fresh - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash The Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask is my another go-to product for years. The texture is creamy soft and leaves my skin very hydrated. It is formulated the Black Tea Complex of Kombucha, Black Tea Extract, Blackberry Leaf Extract, and Lychee Seed Extract that helps to protect your skin from pollution and improve skin elasticity. fresh - Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask The Rose Face Mask is infused with pure rosewater, cucumber ecstasy, and aloe vera that helps to instantly hydrate and soothe the skin. After using it, I feel my skin is soft and plumping. fresh - Rose Face Mask The Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask is an overnight treatment mask that infused with kombucha (black tea ferment), black tea extract, blackberry leaf extract, and lychee seed extract that helps too smooth and rebalance the skin. This mask is intensely moisturizing over the night and gives you lifted, firmer look by morning. fresh - Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask
Organic=Effective? My answer is...🤫
Fresh is my favorite organic brand, I am really a huge fan of this brand. I am impressed by their core value that fresh creates beauty products By combining potent natural ingredients, ancient rituals, and modern science. It is wonderful that fresh creates products people don’t know they need—and then can’t live without. Among all the products of this brand that I have used, fresh - Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask andfresh - Black Tea Firming Overnight Maskare my favorite. Both of them have black tea extract and black tea ferment, and black tea has high levels of antioxidants that protect against damaging free radicals, which is really good for mature skin. Also, because of the composition of black tea, the products smell good and they can make me relax and comfortable. There are also differences between the two masks. The white one is an ultra-hydrating face mask that makes your skin nourished, soft and smooth. This product is also famous for its cloud-like whipped texture. With regard to how to use it, this product is used after cleansing and avoiding the eye area, most importantly, you should leave it on your face for 5-10 minutes and rinse it. The black one, however, is an overnight mask. You just need to apply it onto your damp, cleansed skin before bed, then leave on overnight, which can be used nightly as the final step of your skincare ritual. To my surprise, I slept better when I used it! And when I woke up in the morning, I found myself rejuvenated, as if a few years younger. In conclusion, although there are similarities between the two products, each has its own advantages and can be used alternately. You'll see a noticeable change if you stick with it. By the way, the other products of Fresh are also worth a try. Have you ever tried Fresh masks before? Which is your fav?

Worth the hype? Best hyaluronic serum?
VICHY - Minéral 89 Face Serum It seems that everyone has been raving about this product and rightfully so. It is light weight and can easily incorporate into your day/ night skincare routine. This serum’s base is mineral rich volcanic water—89% to be exact, and contains “15 skin-loving minerals including iron, potassium, calcium, and manganese that work to moisturize skin, re-balance its pH, and protect against pollutants.” — Vichy Another bragging point, is that this product contains only 11 ingredients — clean, allergy tested, dermatologist tested , and Vegan. We all know what an amazing ingredient hyaluronic acid is for our skin—plumps and retain moisture. And this product does just that. It’s so simple and I would definitely recommend this for friends that have very sensitive skin. The only set back about this brand (in general) is that I’m not 100% sure of their cruelty free status. According to their site they do not test on animals but it seems that they currently sell/ market their products in China — which requires animal testing. Maybe this is old news? And if not, hopefully one day that’ll change. So I use it and love it with hesitation and I’m not sure if I would repurchase after I finish the bottle. Maybe I’ll change my mind- who knows. If that (cruelty-free status) is not a factor when you buy/ use cosmetics than go for it! It is $30 and it’s super accessible- available on Ulta*, CVS, Walgreens, Vichy.com, Skinstore.com. If you find yourself on a budget, get it at CVS. There’s always a sale and of course coupons. ** Ulta has them in 3 sizes. Here are some hyaluronic acid serums that are confirmed 🐰cruelty-free: THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 Please share your favorites below. Thank you. Be Kind, Stay Beautiful
First day of school!! My last semester 🎉🎉
I never thought I would be comfortable going to class without makeup, but I’m so glad I don’t feel the need to wake up early and put it on anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I still very much love makeup but it’s a chore getting it off properly! I felt the need to share that it is officially my first day of class in my very last semester of college!! 🎉🎉 (I say like I’m not planning on going back because I hate my degree) We’re gonna be rolling into Marketing Strategy with second day hair, brow gel, and some mascara and that’s it! Sadly, I actually have to attend an in-person lecture, but it’s the only one. I also thought that I might as well share the new routine AM: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Lipikar Wash Ap+ Gentle Foaming Moisturizing Wash I gave this 4 stars because while it says fragrance free it has a strong citrus scent and burns the eyes, but it is definitely moisturizing and doesn’t strip the skin peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner I accidentally got this too close to my under eye and it dried it out GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum pretty nice, pretty standard VANICREAM - Lite Lotion DERMA•E - Scar Cream Sun Protectant SPF 35 PM: LA ROCHE-POSAY - Lipikar Wash Ap+ Gentle Foaming Moisturizing Wash *a little pea size amount of tretinoin* GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum VANICREAM - Lite Lotion CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream I apply both moisturizers at night because my skin tends to dry out over night due to me keeping a fan going at all times My skin is a getter drier as the days go by, as expected, because my Accutane dosage has been bumped up and just due to the colder temperatures

Best Products with Antioxidants
three ships - Radiance Grape Stem Cell + Squalene Day Cream a light cream texture with grape stem cell and squalane. The grape stem cell contains antioxidants called anthocyanins which absorbs UV radiation. The grape stem cell is also embryonic which means it can change into any cell needed- in this case, acting as a catalyst to new skin cell production. Gives a beautiful glow as well. If you shop on their site, you can save 20% with my code LEENA 20. fresh - Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer Another lightweight cream with Super Lotus as the antioxidant component. Super Lotus was formulated to targets the first signs of aging by supporting the skin’s barrier and protecting from free radicals. The white, large jar is a day cream, while the smaller blue jar is the night cream. Its richer in texture and smells like peaches. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil a rich but non-sticky oil; vitamin c is a known potent antioxidant, and while acting as a gold standard for skin brightening and hyperpigmentation reduction, its also a great antioxidant to help with preventing signs of aging. KOSMETIC IMMUNITY - Luminous Skin-Defense Moisturizer This light gel-lotion contains mBeta glucan for hydration and powerful antioxidants derived from Lotus, Aloe and Bamboo, helps protect skin, defending against environmental aggressors. All of these make excellent day creams depending on your brand and/or texture preference. Would highly recommend trying any of these if you're looking for a good antioxidant product.
All my lovely moisturizers emptied in 2020
I will get another jar of TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream for next winter and fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer when everything else Going on is emptied. I can’t live without moisturizers, day or night.

I use all these products during the day and my skin does not react badly and above all I have not got any more pimples I have no more redness and I do not have itch either, the truth is this is what helped me, I am fine with the products I have, if I find something that I like, I'll keep that! But if I wanted to try something else, I do it very carefully, but at the moment my skin is better than before with these products.
Toners for Oily/Combination Skin
Kiehl's - Calendula Herbal Extract Alcohol Free Toner $24.00 for 4.2oz - This toner smells floral, uses real calendula, and balances your skin. I liked it, but later learned the ingredient niacinamide would be helpful for me to implement into my routine so I opted for GM. GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Brightening Toner $14.00 for 4oz - Night and day difference. WOW. Very impressed. Love the feel of it. I have been using it for 3.5 weeks and I can’t wait to continue. I use it morning and night, except when I use an acid toner once a week. Definitely recommend!! Great price. Can be found on beautylish!

All the cleansers I have emptied in 2020!! Im still trying all different cleansers but one item I will definitely repurchase: FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm I feel all other ones are replaceable except for this one!
Favorite cleansers & current haircare!
CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser fresh - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash OLAPLEX - No. 3 Hair Perfector Briogeo - Don't Despair, Repair! Honey Moisture Deep Conditioning Mask The Innate life Shampoo&Conditioner ( was not linked :( ) Hey guys! I haven’t done a post in a while. I hope you are all doing well. I can’t believe it’s already December! Wow! I live in Minnesota and for ONCE there still has not been any snow which makes me really sad because it’s not December without snow :(. However it still has been very cold and I’ve currently have added some new products into my self-care routine! First picture- all 3 of those cleansers I have loved and recommend to other loved ones! I get a lot of people asking me what cleanser I use and I always give them those 3 options because they have been the ones to work best for my oily/combo skin! I recently finished the Fresh soy wash and am currently finishing up the YTTP one! The first cleanser I have ever tried has been Cerave and I swear by it so much! I understand not everything works for everyone but these 3 cleansers would definitely be my top best 3! Second picture- The Innate Life natural shampoo and conditioner, This is the first natural shampoo and conditioner brand I have ever used and I have got to say it works amazing for my hair! I love how clarifying yet non stripping the shampoo is, the conditioner is definitely a thin and lightweight consistency but has hydrated my hair very well! I have long thick curly hair and I try my best to stay away from products that contain bad chemicals and ingredients for my hair. I love this brand and will continue to purchase it for my hair. I have never done an in depth haircare routine for my hair so if you are interested let me know in the comments so I can go in depth in what products I use (: ! Third picture- Olaplex No. 3& Briogeo honey hair mask When I tell you how excited I got when Briogeo brought back their honey hair mask! I have never clicked so fast to order something EVER! I SWEAR by this mask. My hair is very dry thick curly low porosity hair and this stuff makes my hair soooo soft and it smells AMAZING! I love it so much, I love briogeo as a whole brand and I love how they formulate their products without sulphates & silicones ( I do not follow CG method but I prefer no sulphates!). I was so happy to order both olaplex No. 3 and the hair mask set and used together will make your hair feel & smell so good! (Like I said I can make an entire post about my haircare regimen if you are interested) Thank you so much for reading ! ❤️
DRY SKIN TRY THESE TIPS!
Do’s and DON’Ts for DRY skin that will change your skincare life! Hello all my fellow dry skin babes. This one is for you! I’ve got to say, dry skin is relatively new to me. I always had more normal to oily skin and then I moved to San Francisco and for whatever reason my skin is pretty dry now. I’ve learned how to take real good care of my skin and maintain moisture to keep my dry skin as happy as it can be. SO here’s some DO this and DON’T YOU DARE do that tips. DO Use a gentle and hydrating cleanser. (Milk makeup vegan milk cleanser) If you’re going to tone, please look for more hydrating toners. (Puristry) LAYER UP! Layer your hydration with different skincare products like serums, face oils, and moisturizers. EXFOLIATE. Get that layer of dead skin off! all the hard work of layering hydration won’t absorb into your skin. Use products with hydrating/moisture retaining ingredients like; Hyaluronic Acid, Ceramides, squalene and Honey. (Honey and Ceramide will change ya skincare game!) DON’T Over exfoliate. This is just going to cause irritation and breakouts, so now on top of dry skin you have broken out and angry skin. Keep exfoliation in your routine for 1-2x a week. Stay away from harsh ingredients. Ingredients like Benzyl proxide, Salicylic Acid, Alcohol etc. can dry you out, so use it in moderation. Don’t over do it. Getting rid of dry skin takes time! Keep a steady routine and you will start to see results. Wear matte makeup! This will add to your dry skin. My best advice is to wear a hydrating primer and then you can go in with a matte foundation. Try to keep away from setting powders. (HG Laura Mercier translucent powder is made for oily skin! Only making you dry skin babes ever more dry) best of all, don’t be lazy. You can’t fix your skin if you aren’t consistent and keep up a routine. **Dry skin can often appear as oily skin, so if you start to get really oily and its pretty far from your normal, then keep that in mind. When our skin is so dry it starts to produce natural oils to replenish the moisture and essentially fix itself. Dry skin can be so severe that our skin starts producing these oils like crazy. I can sit here and really get into it, but I know I’ll bore you and you’ll just skip through it. So follow these go to and simple tips to be on your way to balance and “normal” skin! May the hydration forever be with you 😉 💦
COSRX-Balancium, Comfort Ceramide Cream
Pretty in Pink 💖
A roundup review of some pink products I’ve been using! ACURE - Seriously Soothing SPF 30 Day Cream This SPF moisturizer boasts niacinamide and blue tansy to sooth and even skin out in addition to being a moisturizing mineral SPF. I gotta say I’m not a huge fan of moisturizing SPFs in the first place but this one looked nice to me. It’s got a thin consistency coming out the tube but as you spread it on it’s pretty thick and heavy feeling. In about the middle of the ingredients list is coconut oil, a very occlusive and comedogenic oil, so I definitely wouldn’t recommend this to anyone who is oily or acne prone, but it hasn’t broken me out at least. It’s not my favorite SPF I’ve ever used, but if my skin is super dry or sensitive I’ll use this over my others. fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash I love this cleanser! I use it twice a week for some nice exfoliation. I’ve always preferred physical exfoliation over chemical (I know I’m in the minority here) and this one is super gentle! The sugar granules are small and dissolve pretty quickly, and the cleanser itself is a non-foaming jelly, plus it smells like a delicious strawberry smoothie. My skin doesn’t feel dry or tight at all after using it. I will definitely be purchasing the full size when I finish this! FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry This is the serum that changed my opinion about serums! I used to avoid them because I hated the sticky feeling they would leave on my skin, but my skin had been lackluster and I wanted to add a vitamin C to my routine. This serum is amazing y’all! It’s only 15% vitamin C derived from cherries, so it’s gentle and natural, plus it has 4 different derivatives of hyaluronic acid. It just smooths over my skin like butter, I love it, I use it as needed for extra hydration or if I just wanna feel extra glowy, plus it smells so good and sweet! I’m glad I took this plunge, I highly recommend it! ORIGINS - Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay I’ve only used this mask twice but so far it’s been really nice. I am a masker, always have been, and while clay masks aren’t really my go-to since I have dry skin, I’m glad I have just this one. It really tightens up my pores and my skin just feels sooo smooth after. It is a bit drying after washing it off but after serum and moisturizer it’s not an issue, and when I wake up my skin feels smooth and clear. Overall i think it does what it claims to do very well!

#waterwednesday ft. My @earthharbor collection i
I came across earth harbor about 3 months ago and I immediately wanted to try every product. That’s when I bought their radiance reveal kit & glow on kit. I’ve been on cloud 9 ever since as you can see my collection has grown quite a bit! If you don’t know what @earthharbor is here’s a little insight: ✨ natural + non-toxic & cruelty free (did I mention plant based 🌱) ✨ made without synthetics, toxins, fillers, and mineral oils (just to name a few) ✨ the founder Ali believes in giving all of her customers ethical, sustainable, and scientific based products. Every single one of her products are so unique and there’s something for everyone! Earth harbor is truly such an amazing brand and I am so proud to support them as they grow 💕 *Disclaimer I am an ambassador but I did become one after I fell in love with their products. Also bought all of these products myself because I truly do love them. * Stay tuned for ever more earth harbor goodies (I have a few on the way 😉) EARTH HARBOR - ALOHA LOVE Nourishing Cream Cleanser EARTH HARBOR - MARINA Biome Brightening Ampoule EARTH HARBOR - Namaste Adaptogen Clarity Ampoule EARTH HARBOR - Sunshine Dew Antioxidant Cleansing Oil EARTH HARBOR - GLOW JUICE Refining Enzyme Mask EARTH HARBOR - Celestine Hydra-Plumping Peptide Serum EARTH HARBOR - TIDAL ROSE Crystal Hydration Toner
EARTH HARBOR-ALOHA LOVE Nourishing Cream Cleanser
I'm really a HUGE fan of PIXI...
Pixi is a British niche brand which has a light, elegant floral aroma. The packaging looks very refreshing and summery! Let me introduce you to a few products I bought: pixi - Glow Tonic Cleansing Gel This is my first time using a gel facial cleanser. It cleanses just moderately, but it's very gentle and doesn't leave your skin feeling tightened. pixi - Glow Tonic I love it! It's a must-have for double cleansing! Normally I'll use it as a toner mask for one to two minutes then wipe it off. It feels very refreshing and it also exfoliates. I don't recommend girls with sensitive skin to use it every day. pixi - Glow Tonic It's a small bottle with a dropper, which makes it more hygienic. The texture is a little sticky, but it absorbs pretty quickly. Using it on top of another base serum is even more hydrating. pixi - Phenomenal Gel I don't usually use heavy facial creams in summer, so a lotion is just right. It doesn't ball up when I use this product with sunscreen and foundation. Pixi On-The-Glow Multi-Use Moisture Stick It looks a lot like lipstick. According to the official website, it contains vitamin D2 and imparts a glowing effect on your complexion while protecting your skin. However, I haven't figured out where I can incorporate it into my skincare routine.
My quarantine skincare routine - simple and short. But mostly just trying to finish up products before buying anything new 🙃 My routine during this quarantine hasn’t gotten elaborate or anything it’s probably just gotten more simple bc I’ve completely stopped wearing makeup unless I try a bit on here and there. These are some products that I’ve been enjoying and going for a lot lately! ☁️@versed cleanser- this is a great everyday cleanser for any kind of skin! It’s gentle, effective, takes out all the dirt and makeup and feels good on the face when washing. Has a nice light minty smell too! ☁️@versed brightening toner- I have dulll skin die to my hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. This toner instantly gives me brighter loling skin with a glow. I use this almost daily! ☁️@dhcskinare - this is a great oil based cleanser to remove any impurities and makeup. I use this to get out all my makeup and it works great. Even for eyeliner and waterproof mascara. It’s gentle and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean! ☁️@peachandlily glass skin serum - still continuing my daily use with this serum. The biggest difference in seeing with this serum at this point (3 weeks of use) is my pores look less visible and acne has calmed down ☁️@herbivorebotanicals pink cloud moisturizer - I’m almost out of this one.... but I’ve been using this one daily for the past month and it’s just a great everyday moisturizer for any kind of skin. It smells lovely too ☁️@ohiibeauty get fresh toner pad (brighten) - this was a random buy! These are great of your feeling too lazy to wash your face 🙋🏻♀️, for on-the-go, take to the gym etc. easy and convenient and they do a good job of cleaning and exfoliating your skin. Just use moisturizer after!
DHC-Deep Cleansing Oil
Ranking the Farmacy “Farmers Market” Products
I have been wanting to test out Farmacy for quite sometime now, so when I saw the FARMACY - Farmer's Market Kit at Sephora, I thought it would be a good intro to some of there best selling products. Here’s my rating of the products from least favorite to most favorite. FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm 🍏 This stuff gets the job done, however I am not a big fan of cleansing balms (personally prefer micellar water for double cleanse). I felt like I needed a lot of the product to dissolve my makeup, and I do not the oily feeling on my skin. However, when it comes to cleansing balms, this is one of the better ones I have tried. I will not be repurchasing for the above reasons. FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya 💧This moisturizer is super lightweight and spreads easily on the skin. The texture feels nice. For me, it doesn’t give me as much hydration as I like from a moisturizer, it also made my skin feel somewhat tacky after I used, which is why I don’t love it. I think it will be a staple when my skin is feeling oily. This moisturizer has a great product list, including hyaluronic acid + a blend of phytonutrients known to help clear pores + reduce shine. It also has a lemon/limey scent to it. I would consider repurchasing if my skin were feeling oily. FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask 🍯 I swear this mask is magic. At first I thought I was putting honey on my face, but it quickly turns into a warming cream. While creamy, it also has that natural honey smell and gives you the same great qualities honey does. It gives my skin a soothing and rejuvenated feel after using. Although it seems like it could be messy, the application was super easy. This is a perfect “spa night” product. Love the was this feels on my skin. Definite repurchase! FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry 🍒 I did NOT think this would be my favorite product out of the kit. This is a 15% vitamin C serum powered by a potent cocktail of vitamin C-rich acerola cherry and hyaluronic acid and it works. I am usually not a fan of vitamin C serums because the make my face feel sticky. After using this sermon daily for around a month I have noticed more radiant skin. It also has a nice, light natural cherry smell. I have been putting this below my eyes and my dark eye bags have reduced greatly. I will definitely be repurchasing, however the price for the full sized product is pretty steep ($62.00). Overall, I am incredibly happy I tried the “Farmers Market” products from Farmacy. All four of the products were high quality and great. I recommend trying these out for a great introduction to the brand.
