Products & Tips for Maskne 😷

FaceBareSkinCare
I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone so wearing a mask constantly at work is not helpful for my skin progress. I’ve been recommending a few products to friends and family and figured I’d share what has been working for me! Morning Mask Routine 😷 1. Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 2. Flawless Serum by SkinKissed (Vitamin C and HA) 3. Great Barrier Relief by Krave (just in mask area) 4. Daily Greens by Farmacy 5. The Beet Shield by Krave (everywhere!) Night Mask Routine 🌝 1. Very Cherry Clean Balm by Farmacy 2. Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 3. Great Barrier Relief by Krave 4. Retinal Moisturizer by Allies of Skin 5. Facial Oil (sometimes & it varies) Heavy Hitters ⚾️ 1. Great Barrier Relief Serum by Krave This serum is incredible. It mimics your natural skin barrier so it is perfect for a damaged moisture barrier as well as providing a barrier between your skin and your mask. The Niacinamide in this is also very useful for breakouts! 2. Allies of Skin Retinal /Moisturizer (Vitamin A) You do not need to buy a super expensive retinal product to have an effective retinal. This was a special purchase for myself and I love it but cheaper options exist! Retinal/ Retinol products can be tricky if it’s your first time but they are essentially acne treatment products because they increase your skin cell turnover. I find they increase healing time and prevent breakouts in the first place and I LOVE them for breakouts and breaking a cycle of acne. Retinol Tips: ✨Use at night as main active ingredient (general rule of thumb is to avoid mixing with Vitamin C) ✨Start with small amounts 1-2 times a week and work your way to more consistent use ✨Your skin may “purge” for a few weeks while starting out. That’s normal and it will go away if it is from purging. This can mean breakouts. I also had some peeling when I first started. ✨Pair with a heavier moisturizer to combat any dryness 3. Very Cherry Clean by Farmacy It doesn’t have to be this exact cleansing balm but always double cleanse your skin after lots of mask wearing! This can be any oil-based cleanser. I personally love taking my time, throwing on some music and gently rubbing this on my face for like 10-15 minutes. Why? Because not only do I properly pull off any oil, dirt, makeup and SPF, but it also removes blackheads. So gross but honestly you can see it working if you do it long enough! Blackheads are oil so it makes sense that an oil would be great to clean them out. General Maskne Tips: 💦 Wash your masks between each use 💦 Double cleanse your face as soon as you get home 💦Using a clay mask or sulfur mask once or twice a week will help remove impurities from the skin 💦 Let your skin breathe when you can- I avoid foundation/ CC cream whenever possible and I think it helps me personally. 💦 If you’re really struggling, I’d recommend using the Healing Ointment as a day moisturizer. Talk about a barrier between your skin and your mask! What are your maskne tips??

Product Mentioned
I paid what for this!?
I got this overnight mask during Black Friday. I am sooo disappointed in the product. Since I’ve started using it I’ve been had white heads, clogged pores, irritation, blemishes and dryness. They claim it’s supposed to: Brightens dull, lifeless skin Nourishes dehydrated, stressed skin Protects skin from dehydrating conditions Anti-glycation protection to maintain fresh, supple skin Ameliorates the appearance of imperfections, fine lines and wrinkles Offers all the reparative and renewing properties of Retinol without any of the traditional irritation Nutrient-rich reservoir that harnesses the skin’s most optimal repair period to heal and rejuvenate stressed,Problematic skin — improving the appearance of pore size, radiance and skin texture Okay. This literally did nothing that it states and now I have to try and repair the damage it’s done. The only thing I did notice was my skin was a bit more firm and supple. Allies of Skin - 1A Retinal & Peptides Overnight Mask I don’t think I will ever use this again. It’s such a shame because it was so expensive. This was $109... I’m so sad I really had high hopes for this. Please let me know if this has worked for you. I am wondering if I could be purging but there’s no way I have that much debris lurking under my skin. It seems more like a reaction.

Is Luxury Retinal Worth It? 🤔
I have sensitive combination skin and I’m also acne-prone and deal with hormonal acne. This means that retinol is very important to my routine to increase cell turnover and help with breakouts. ✨This prodict is the 1A Retinal & Peptides Overnight Mask by Allies of Skin. It consists of a peptide complex, 9 antioxidants, 5 brighteners and retinaldehyde. I purchased this from the AoS website after seeing it all over the skincare Instagram community. ✨This product is luxury and super expensive at $109 for 1.7 oz. However, with all the rave reviews of this brand I figured I’d start with this item which I will shell out for so here we are. ✨The product says to use their probiotic mist before use for best results so I sometimes use one from a different brand that I love and put it on as my main product for the night besides cleansing beforehand then adding eye cream and lip balm. ✨It smells amazing. It’s refreshing in a light citrus kind of way. The texture itself is silky and light and the product is a light yellow color. 🌻I like this a lot but I’m not sure I’d buy it again because of the price point. I feel like it works in terms of helping with breakouts and I’m definitely curious to try the new formula without essential oils but this is highly expensive and I’ll probably try the Crystal Retinal by MediK8 next which has been on my list. If a product is this expensive, it has to be a miracle worker for me to buy it again at this rate. I will however be trying their Vitamin C and moisturizer at some point. I think if a product is amazing and the most effective, it is worth the splurge but I’m not sure this is the holy grail retinal for me.

My top 3 products for GLOWY skin ✨
These 3 have been my ritual for hydrated, glowy, happy, healthy skin !!💦☺️💗 It all starts with creating a smooth canvas... BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - LOTION P50 PIGM 400 This product truly keeps my skin happy. It has evened out my texture, closed comedones while brightening! This formulation is targeted at brightening and its main ingredient is niacinamide follow by some AHAs + BHAs🌼 Then something to brighten dull skin... MAELOVE - Glow Maker My favorite Vitamin C product to date!! You truly notice the difference within days of use and it has lightened up some tough dark spots. I love the watery formula as it allows for a really smooth and luscious application. It features Vitamin C + Vitamin E + Ferulic Acid and Hyaluronic Acid for a boost of hydration. Plus the price can’t be beat 😝 Finally a moisturizer to lock all the magic in... FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya The glow this moisturizer gives you cannot be beat! You will wake up in the morning with your pores seemingly filled and an appearance of really smooth skin. I love wearing this during the day time too for a subtle dewy no make up look. The ingredients I’m excited about are Niacinamide, Sodium Polyglutamate and 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid!! Not to mention is smells heavenly 🪴

Keep going! It will happen! 💕
I know when you first start your skincare journey it can be so incredibly overwhelming and discouraging. Especially when you drop a lot of money on a product that sooooo many people love and swear by and you just don’t see any results. Well let me tell you! No matter how amazing a product is, it’s going to take time. It doesn’t always take months upon months but you’ve got to be consistent and make sure the products you are using are right for you. YOU. It may take trial and error but you will find what works for you. I have been sticking to a routine for 2 months now. Before that I just used different products here and there. My results you see are a combination of the following products being added into my routine: A good cleanser currently: HERBIVORE - Pink Cloud Rosewater + Tremella Creamy Jelly Cleanser The Ordinary - Matrixyl* 10% + HA I use this ever single day. A good vitamin c serum currently Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum A retinol/ vitamin A serum currently Mad Hippie - Vitamin A Serum A good daytime moisturizer for combo skin like boscia - Revitalizing Black Charcoal Hydration Gel FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream Mad Hippie - Mad Hippie Face Cream Niacinamide serum or powder currently NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% The Ordinary - 100% Niacinamide Powder And a good exfoliant 3x weekly Currently using Mad Hippie - Microdermabrasion Facial I alternate these am-pm just depending on what I think my skin needs most at that time. I do not ever use these all together. I also use some masks a few times a week and those definitely vary. Just keep researching, learning, and trying things. You will find what is going to work best for you. We here on Cherie can tell you if a product work for us but no one but you can tell what’s going to give you the results you want. Just keep going 🧡 You got this!

Current Vitamin C Serum Review 🍊
☀️ I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone. I always use a Vitamin C serum during the morning and have been using this for a few months. I’m currently in the middle of my second bottle and finally feel ready to share my thoughts. 🍊 This is the Flawless face serum by SkinKissed. It is 20 ml and about $33. It has Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid. It is a natural product meant to help with hormonal spots, inflammation, dry skin, breakouts, acne scars, reducing fine lines and stretch marks. It is also cruelty-free. 🌈 I’ve been using this for months now and I’m very picky with Vitamin C products. I have used many and get very irritated when they oxidize quickly or when they’re super sticky when applied. This, however, I love! It doesn’t feel sticky at all, is very liquidy which I like prior to moisturizer and it works. I find this really effective for dark spots. My skin looks brighter than ever and although I wasn’t expecting to love this originally, I’d definitely recommend this product. *pr gifted with no obligation to post SKINKISSED - Flawless Serum #CheriePartner

Summer to Fall Skincare Routine Changes🍁
I have sensitive, acne-prone combo skin. I live in New England so when the weather changes I find I need to make some adjustments to my regular routines. I plan this out ahead of time so I know I have products on the shelf and ready because when it gets cold here, it happens FAST. My current summer base routine for the day (pictured): 1. Water-based cleanser ☀️ Current = Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave 2. Vitamin C serum with Hyaluronic Acid ☀️Current = Face Serum by SkinKissed 3. Moisturizer ☀️ Current = Daily Greens by Farmacy 4. Sunscreen ☀️ Current = Beet Shield by Krave As it is now summer, this is a lightweight routine and I love it. This addresses my concerns without making me feel greasy. When fall comes, my goals are the same in terms of preventing acne, keeping skin bright, etc., but I also need to focus on hydration. Here’s an example of what I’m thinking💭 🍁 Fall Routine 🍁 1. Cleanser = Matcha Hemp Cleanser by Krave $16 for 4.05 oz This cleanser is actually already very hydrating for my skin and I love the ingredient list, price point and of course it’s packed with antioxidants. This is a year round product for me now and I’ve been recommending it to my friends. 2. Vitamin C- Vitamin C Serum by Mad Hippie $33.99 for 1oz I’m struggling a bit with Vitamin C. I like the one I have, I’m just ready to try something new and this one looks INCREDIBLE. It has amazing ingredients that are anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, soothing, brightening and hydrating. This product is also vegan and cruelty-free. I always have a Vitamin C serum in my morning routine because it helps my skin so much! I’m also going to try the one by Naturium just to see if it was worth the hype and drama. 3. Moisturizer Day time- Oat So Simple by Krave $28 for 2.7 oz This will be a new one for me, but as you can tell, I adore Krave. This still looks fairly lightweight and with the oat, it is calming for irritations and rebalancing for stressed skin damaged by environmental aggressors. Night time- Healing Ointment by CeraVe $12 for 5oz I stopped using this at night for summer, but as things get cold here, having that layer of super hydration at night will really help my skin again. I love this product. It’s super affordable and honestly always helps. It has Hyaluronic Acid and Ceramides in it too. 4. Sunscreen = Centella Unscented Sunscreen by Purito $15.90 for 2oz I stopped using this for summer because it’s a bit thicker than Beet Shield and more hydrating which I didn’t need this season. This has soothing properties and feels smooth on the skin. I absolutely love this and will use it each morning when it starts to get chilly! I’m also buying it for my mom who struggles with dry patches and redness. 🍁What are you adding into your routine for fall?

Yes ❤️✨
Great product for all skin types. I use this almost every night due to my skin being dry and my moister barrier is thin. When I'm trying new products, I know this product has my back to make sure what I try doesn't ruin my skin barrier. If you have oily skin, probably not something you need to use every day, but to have on hand when you do have a day your skin is sensitive and irritated at something. This also gets my fragrance and essential oil free stamp of approval! It has an oder that you have to get past, kind of earthy (so you know even without looking at the ingredients it's free from perfumes). On top of that, they list the % of their actives in their ingredients! This is the first product I've tried from Krave beauty and I'll likely be trying them all. Very pleased

MOST RECENT UPDATED AM ROUTINE WITH THEIR PRICES
I’m been going through many products, most of the time focusing on ACNE; a month ago I was watching Hyram YouTube videos and he mentioned “Damaged skin barriers” in that moment something told me “You need to focus on hydrating your skin, and products that help you repair your barrier not Just acne products” “” while you are repairing your skin barriers you will be also helping with healing your acne scars and future acne” .. **When you are using acne products they can be very strong on your skin that can cause irritation, dryness; damaging your skin barriers. That’s why it’s very important to moisturize your skin a LOT even, if you have oily skin. ** So here I am feeling better with this routine: 1. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Face Cleanser ** I don’t use it every morning, only when I feel my face dirty because I have very dry skin **gently and has niacinamide 😬 so a + $14.99 2. I'm from - Rice Toner It’s my favorite toner so far!! It’s soooo hydrating 🥰 I already order another one 😬 $27 a little pricey, but it’s worth it! 3. Krave - Great Barrier Relief Best serum I ever used! It’s very moisturizing and it just feel great on my skin. $28 4 LA ROCHE-POSAY - Toleriane Double Repair Face Moisturizer It’s very hydrating, but at the same time it doesn’t feel heavy on my skin. $14 5. Krave - The Beet Shield *Just started using this one so I’m not gonna rate it yet, but so far it’s good, I noticed it leaves your face a little bit shiny, but doing bother me much. $20

Winter slugging 2.0 🐌❄️
In Canada winters are harsh and the Cerave products are hard to come by (always sold out in Montreal anyways) so I used to slug with just vaseline. It works fine, but I decided to upgrade after finding this baby at the drugstore. I was surprised to find the cerave baby line also had a ointment and skincare junkies seem to not have found the baby aisle just yet! CeraVe - Healing Ointment The ingredient list is a bit different from the regular one but it’s very similar. It contains: Ceramides that support healthy skin barrier ✨ Panthenol which is a humectant that has anti inflammatory properties 🧴 Hyaluronic Acid that helps the skin retain moisture 💧 Mineral oil & petroleum that are amazing occlusives 🚫 Since slugging with it a couple nights a week, my wind burns and sensitized skin is so much better (my skin can’t tolerate much actives and I sometimes push a bit too far). I try to use it the night before I wash my hair because it does travel. I also don’t usually cleanse in the morning but If I used petroleum the night before, I will use a gentle cleanser in the morning. I would not recommend slugging to someone with active acne or super oily skin. Petroleum is non comedogenic if you apply it on clean skin but it traps everything in the skin (the good and the bad) so if you produce alot of sebum or have severe acne, maybe it’s not for you. * I do NOT believe in « clean beauty » and couldn’t care less about your fear mongering about petroleum, mineral oil and all of the « harmful ingredients » you think is in this product so please don’t even bother. I will not get cancer from it, i’m fine thank you. ☠️

Accutane update!
I have completed my first month of accutane! Now that I’ve finished the first month, my dosage is going up so I’m anticipating more dryness. 😩🏜 PROS: WILL I EVER WASH MY HAIR AGAIN!? It’s never greasy anymore and has so much body! THIS PART IS BOMB. Cons: oh my aching EYES. You know when it’s allergy season and your eyes ache and burn? Well picture that but like you’ve slept with your eyes pried WIDE OPEN ALL NIGHT with sand and sun blowing into them. Also, skin around nose is dry AF. Love looking like I have bats in the cave at all times. Also my hands peel?! I’ve never had ashy dry hands til now. Products that have been helpful when dealing with the shedding uglies and dry skin misery: CeraVe - Healing Ointment Feels greasy but offers sweet relief from painful skin cracking. Dr.Dan's - CORTIBALM LIP BALM HOLY GRAIL LIP BALM. Bio-Oil - Dry Skin Gel Feels greasy, but makes body skin feel nice after showering and before bed. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer Sinks into skin nicely, doesn’t clog my pores, keeps skin feeling good all day. Murad - Anti-Aging Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++ I loved this before accutane and still love it. It’s a nice sunscreen because there’s no white cast and the shiny goes away quickly. GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum Nice applicator and bottle, sinks in quick and not sticky! AND ITS CHEAP. Winner!! Tried one bottle and ordered three more because it offers such a nice hydration boost. ACCUTANE USERS: I CANNOT RECOMMEND THE DR DANS LIP BALM ENOUGH. IT IS NOTHING SHORT OF AMAZING for painful lip cracks, shedding, and tightness in the lips. 1000000% worth finding.

My fave Korean Sunscreen: The Beet Shield
Krave Beauty has a sunscreen product called The Beet Shield. Since the sunscreen regulations in the US are lightyears behind everywhere else, they couldn't market it as a sunscreen due to the advanced chemical filters. So for now it's labeled as an "Antioxidant Day Fluid." The regular Krave Beauty fans know what's up. Anyway this sunscreen comes out as a lightweight white cream that blends into the skin. No white cast for my fellow brown and black folks. I have combo/oily skin and this doesn't make me greasy or oily. This is by far my favorite product from Krave Beauty. What are your favorite Krave Beauty products? Their cleanser is pretty lit too. I've only tried a small sample of their Kale-lalu-yaha chemical exfoliant so I'd like to try a full size of that as well. Krave - The Beet Shield

First Impressions: Krave Beauty 🌊
First Impressions: Krave Beauty 🌊
I’ve been wanting to try out this brand for so long because not only did read wonders about its formulations and ingredients but also because of their mission and stance on environmental sustainability 🌱 💡About the Brand: The focus for the brand was to simplify your skin care routine to the essentials and to repair of your skin’s natural barrier function. Alongside simplifying the skin care routine, the company stands for the reduction of overconsumption. For example: using up your products before restocking- this process will help consumers to purchase products less frequently, thus reducing waste and mass production. ❗️ Krave Beauty has 6 products categorized into either core (cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen) or supplement (toner, serum) ✅ The Products: Krave - Oat So Simple Water Cream Creamy. Light. Nourishing. Plumpness. I have normal skin leaning toward oily in the summer. When I look for moisturizers I’m not one to look for extra extra light ones. THIS ONE is a good medium between light and heavy. It makes me feel hydrated long after applied. Krave - Great Barrier Relief First thought was - hmm this smells different. I can’t really put my finger on it BUT I don’t think it’s a bad smell. And once you work it in, the smell dissipates. It’s a light weight creamy serum that easily sinks into your skin. I bought this because Liah claims that the Tamanu Oil in the serum will help with scarring and hyperpigmentation. I’m excited to test this out long term and see if my scars fade away! Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser Amazing soft scent. I definitely notice the oat and matcha (since I consume those often 😂). The cleanser is gentle and lightly foams when you work it in. I let my face dry afterwards and sat with it for about 15 minutes and I did not feel dryness AT ALL. 💭 Overall Thoughts: As for a first impression, I don’t think I have any bad things to say about it tbh. No Fragrance. Nourishing Ingredients. Suitable for all skin types. IM A FAN 🤩 I’ll have to check in in a couple of months to give an updated review.

Calming gel cream for oily & acne-prone skin
Calming gel cream for oily & acne-prone skin
I’ve been trying out some new gel creams lately and my latest one is the íUNIK - Centella Calming Gel Cream . This gel cream claims to provide brightening benefits, wrinkle care, and calming skin relief for sensitive and blemish prone skin. It contains 70% centella asiatica leaf water, 10% tea tree leaf water, niacinamide, arginine, sodium hyaluronate, allantoin, centella asiatica, and a ton of botanicals. This has a lightweight, opaque gel cream texture that smoothly glides over the skin. As you’re applying it, it turns into an almost watery consistency that melts into the skin. Once fully absorbed, it leaves a nice hydrating finish without feeling heavy or greasy. This was actually my first iunik product, and I was quite impressed with it. I can see why Hyram approves of it so much. It layers well over products without any pilling issues and keeps my skin adequately hydrated throughout the day. It also doesn’t make me greasier as the day progresses either. The calming and brightening benefits of this are nice as well since my skin looks slightly brighter and less red after application. I can’t comment much on the wrinkle care as I don’t really have any to worry about at the moment. There aren’t any fragrance in the formula but it does have a citrus scent due to the bergamot oil. Luckily, this hasn’t irritated or cause any breakouts which is always a win for me. This is a great moisturizer for oily skin types. Overall, this is another great gel cream to add to my routines and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying it. I can definitely see myself repurchasing this.

THE Most Underrated Skincare Brand 🏆
THE Most Underrated Skincare Brand 🏆
I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone. I was dealing with a lot of hormonal acne as well but I’ve finally gotten it a bit more under control but do get breakouts and acne scars still. I’m also very sensitive to fragrance. Recently I bought a few products from Krave and I never plan on going back. They don’t have the fullest range just yet but the products they do have are total rockstars in affordability and ingredients. 🌱 Krave is all about taking a clean break. There are a lot of misconceptions and nasties in the skincare world that are not needed and not smart. Krave is all about taking a break from that and resetting. Here are my current favorites: ✨Great Barrier Relief Serum $28 for 1.52 fl oz 🔑 Key Ingredients: Tamanu Oil, Safflower Oil, Rosehip Oil, Vitamin B3, Ceramide These ingredients are for skin regeneration, hyperpigmentation, anti-aging, brightening, acne-fighting and generally repairing a damaged skin barrier. This serum is turning into an all time favorite between the ceramide and niacinamide ingredient list. I actually use this after a lighter Vitamin C serum during the morning on my mask area and I think it’s been really helping to create a barrier and prevent breakouts from constant mask wearing. This product is great for mimicking your skin’s natural moisture barrier so it’s great for skin that needs help from too many actives, sunburn, etc. ✨The Beet Shield $20 for 50ml 🔑 Key Ingredients: Beet root, Allantoin, Vitamin C, Resveratrol and EGCG. This daytime fluid has ingredients that overall give skin antioxidants, prevent signs of aging, soothe skin, fight free radicals, reduce pigmentation, reduce blemishes and moisturize. This is a chemical screen that is very lightweight. It doesn’t leave skin sticky or leave a white cast. It also has Vitamin C which I love! I feel like using this and their serum has maintained my clear skin even with the mask. Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser $16 for 4.05 fl oz 🔑 Key Ingredients: Matcha, hemp seeds, oats, almonds, Vitamin B5 and Sodium PCA. ✨This cleanser is stunning. It is highly hydrating and skin barrier friendly. This can be used morning and night and a little goes a long way. The normal amount I’ve used in the past covered my fave, neck, chest and back so I’ve been able to use less by using this product as well. It doesn’t strip the skin and packs a gorgeous punch of antioxidants and hydration while cleansing. Perfection. ♻️ You can also choose carbon offset shipping for $1 more when ordering from them and the products come in a 100% recyclable carton with no excess fillers.

Review My Nighttime Routine 🌙
✨ I have sensitive combination skin that is acne-prone and I also get hormonal breakouts. My skin doesn’t love fragrance and also really benefits from consistency. 🍉At night, I double cleanse to remove make-up, dirt, SPF and impurities. I typically use Farmacy’s Very Cherry Clean balm and Krave Beauty’s Matcha Hemp Cleanser which are gentle and packed with perks from Vitamin C to antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. 🍊After that, I use an eye cream. Lately, I’ve been using my mini Jet Lag mask for this purpose and love it. I find this mask to be so multifunctional and really hydrating. Sometimes I’ll use it as a nighttime moisturizer too but not tonight. 🍋Although it varies depending on the night and need that day of my skin, last night I went in with a retinol once my skin was drier after washing rather than keeping it wet for a different serum like HA, etc. I don’t adore this retinol and have a new one coming from Allies of Skin but this does a good job with cell turnover despite the questionably long ingredient list and questionable customer service/behavior of the brand. 🍏After that, I used this moisturizer by Farmacy which I wasn’t in love with at first but it is growing on me, especially for summertime where I want a bit of a lighter finish compared to some of my winter nighttime moisturizers. 🍇Then to lock everything in, I use this gorgeous oil by Leah Skin. This is an oil that actually can be paired with retinol according to the brand owner because it is a stable form of Vitamin C which is super cool. 🌈 I like this routine quite a lot minus the retinol although it does the job for now.

🐌 Gary Had Secrets - Secrets to Hydration 🐌
When I think of skincare, I don’t think of snail mucin (slime - snail secretion filtrate) but lo and behold it exists and its a holy grail product 🐌🙌🏻🐌 The ancient Greeks knew Gary’s secret looong before I did. Then France, then Chile, then Korea. Basically everyone else way before me. 💁🏻‍♀️ Snail mucin is actually incredibly beneficial to skin thanks to some of the different components in it: glycolic acid glycoprotein enzymes copper peptides hyaluronic acid Its also...anti-microbial 🐌 All of these pieces make it great for repairing skin damage, evening skin tone, fading hyperpigmentation, firming and tightening the skill, boosting collagen production and hydrating the skin thanks to its hyaluronic acid. Do I like it? Absolutely I do! Its one of the only moisturizers I’ve ever found that soaks into my skin so nicely and leaves my skin feeling so plump and hydrated AND it hasn’t caused any acne flare-ups for me at all. Actually its been helping my skin stay hydrated and keeping my acne down. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Price? The price is comparable to some other Ulta / Sephora beauty picks, but its also a fair price considering a little goes a long way ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Recommend for? I’d recommend it for all skin types, even oily 🙋🏻‍♀️ It is on the lighter side though, so dry / dehydrated skin types might not benefit as much from it. But if you’re in the market for a lightweight moisturizer, give it a try 🙌🏻 Texture? Not gonna lie, its a little slimy / sticky and it took me about ten minutes of just playing with it between my fingers before I actually put it on my face. But, it spreads easily and absorbs quickly ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Overall thoughts? Overall this product is amazing, its hydrating but light and it really is the only product that I’ve used that has really brought my dehydrated skin back to life and even moreso when combined with my other hydrating products. It makes me hesitant to even think of trying a different moisturizer because my skin feels sooo good ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ingredients? Snail Secretion Filtrate, Betaine, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Cetearyl Olivate, Sorbitan Olivate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearic acid, Arginine, Dimethicone, Carbomer, Panthenol, Allantoin, Sodium Polyacrylate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol, Adenosine, Phenoxyethanol.
