🌟Late Texture Tuesday Post 🌟
here are some of my fave products and you could see that I’m hitting the pan on some of them.😆 First would be from @farmacybeauty Green Clean Cleansing Balm which is one of my skincare holy grails. This is my second one btw, I still can’t get enough of it! It removes makeup completely and it smells SOOO GOOD 😭 Cheers to you guys for makin this AMAZING product.❤️ Second is my @goldfadenmd Doctor Scrub. I know that I’ve talked about this product before, but I cannot stress enough how this scrub made wonders to my skin.❤️ It made me my skin tighter, brighter, and clearer! I use this everyday and it doesnt irritate me.☺️ Its makin me sad that I’ll hit pan on this soon because I don’t even know when I will be able to purchase one again.😭 Lastly is from @soldejaneiro Acai Body Power Cream. I know every loves the original BUM BUM Cream (I do too), but I’m leaning more to this because I LOVE the scent and does have teeny tiny shimmers that makes my skin GLOW.😍 *some of these items are kindly gifted

SOL de Janeiro
Mar. 4, 2020
Here are my 3 mini Sol de janeiro moisturisers. I know I have said this before but I love it when companies make mini sizes as it means you can try something before spending more money than you have too in case you do not like the product. Bum Bum cream is the companies most famous cream, it does smell amazing, it actually takes you to Brazil. The top notes are pistachio and almond. Middle notes are haliotrope and jasmine petals. Dry down is vanilla, salted caramel and sandlewood. It really is yummy. Coco Cabana. The newest player. I’m glad I got a smaller size as I’m not sure how I feel about it yet. Sometimes I get coconut vanilla, other times I get salty butter. I think a bit more time and I will have a better verdict! Acid body power cream. This one surprised me! It doesn’t have the powerful scent that bum bum has, but it works well if I want to wear a floral perfume. It also has mica particles in it. I actually really like this cream and found it more moisturising than bum bum. Hope everyone is having a good day!
Featuring the soldejaneiro Açai Body Power Cream. This is actually one of my favourite body products, I know Bum Bum is the more popular one as the smell is just Devine but the smell of this body cream just works so well with the perfumes I like. I am in love with rose and floral scents and this just layers so elegantly with them. I love my Bum Bum but it’s a gourmand and I only have a couple of scents that will go with it.

Asking for tips/suggestions!!!
The Ordinary - Retinol 1% in Squalane haven’t used it for a long period of time to give a review. But there are times i would apply this at night and my skin is feeling soft like a baby’s butt. The way i integrate this product in my routine, is that i would use this only as my active and the rest of my skincare is gentle and basic. Cerave hydratjng cleanser, kiehls calendula toner, then this serum, and finish it with a nourishing cream such as drunk elephant lalaretro whipped cream! I know retinol can be very drying which is why i used the moisturizer that has the most beneficial ingredients. I got myself two bottles thinking i would go through this quick, but i thought wrong. Which is why i started using it on my neck every day, i have some noticeable lines that i would like to get rid of. i would buff it with the cerave lotion, and apply a few drops on the palm of my hands and apply it on my neck and chest. I only use this once a week, ive learned it the hard way and used so much actives at once that my skin became hella sensitive. Any suggestions as to how i could benefit more to this serum? YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Tonerno ratings, because i haven’t used it yet! I ended up buying the smaller bottle of it, because for now i’m finishing up the drunk elephant aha/bha serum before i could try this product out. Please give me tips on how to use it, how i can incorporate it in my routine, should i just not have bought it at all? Lol 🆘

What is your favorite cleanser?
QOTD:What is your favorite cleanser?Do you know its PH level ? Quick short thoughts on these cleansers that I have been using 🌱RedEarth Beauty Brightening Refining Scrub with Kakadu Plum- The texture and the pearly color of this product is very pretty and soft on the skin. My face feels soft and cleaned after using this. There is a pleasant floral fruity smell which I love a lot. 🌱Panacea The Aegis Daily Facial Cleanser- The packaging of this is very sleek and minimalistic. It lathers on my face really nicely. The scent is a clean fresh scent, It leaves my face squeaky clean. Maybe too clean for my liking. I think if you are into a squeaky clean or if you have very oily skin, this might be for you 🌱Youth To The People Kale Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Superfood Cleanser- Beautiful packaging and natural ingredients. The scent is fresh like a kale smoothie if you are into kale. I love it personally. It cleans my face and leaves my face really soft. I would love to buy the full size of this. 🌱Tatcha The Deep Cleanse- I Love the luxurious scent and the soft creamy texture. It is one of my go to cleansers lately. It leaves my face soft and feels very clean. 🌱Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil- Beautiful packaging and gentlest cleanser out of the five. Maybe it is because it is an oil. Beautiful scent and leaves my face soft and clean. I highly recommend this product.
TATCHA-Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser
Farmacy Skincare has to be one of my all time favorite brands. I quickly fell in love with their Bright On Mask and Green Clean Balm. My newest addictions have to be their Honey Butter lip balm and their newest Freshen Up deodorant. I love that their products are cruelty free and made organically which makes them even more amazing. I love that their products work so well but aren’t harsh on the skin
FARMACY-Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask
indie lee Rosehip Cleanser，Brightening Cleanser. Indeed, those two look quite similar. Both products contain a blend of natural ingredients and completely avoid synthetic chemicals like parabens, phthalates and sulfates, so it's ideal for all those who like their products clean, sustainable but still look stylish. However, it’s quite different experience with Rosehip cleanser when using the Brightening one. The former is still the best when it comes to hydrate and smoothe out the skin; I would still recommended it for dry sensitive skin. It also smells different. The strawberry oil in the formula gives the product sweet candy scent that provides a little extra mood boost. Not only that, strawberry also known as natural exfoliant to brighten and even out the skin. It's claimed to renew and revitalize skin with free-radical-fighting lycopene which is a natural pigment found in red-colored fruits like tomato. It's a strong antioxidant that 10x more efficient than beta-carotene to defend against some of the factors of skin aging and to avoid inflamed skin. I use this for a morning cleanse and the second part of a double cleanse at night. It has a light gel texture that can foam slightly once it's in contact with water. Don't expect soap style lather. It rinses clean and does the job to remove dirt and sebum without leaving any residue. It leaves my oily skin in a comfortable but slightly dry state that is ready to receive the full benefits of any skincare that follows. It's very kind and gentle to my skin barrier, I notice that my skin feels a lot more balanced and less sensitive. Having said that, I didn't personally experience any brightening effect.

Awake : Glow Smoothie Jelly Cleanser
I love a sample or trial size of a product! It’s great to test out new things without potentially wasting something that I have too much of to use. I got this travel size #Awake - Glow Smoothie Jelly Cleanser GlowSmoothieJellyCleanser for $14 from Ulta, and it contains 1.6 oz. I’ll list the specifications for the full size bottle below, because I will definitely be repurchasing this! 🌱 vegan/animalcrueltyfree 🔗 @awakeskin 📍Ulta 💰 $22 for 5 oz / ~$4.40 oz (a better deal than the travel size I purchased!) 💬 The packaging and look of this product pulled me in immediately, but when I smelled it, I was hooked. It smells like the clear gummy bears, which I believe comes from the pineapple extract in the product. This also contains apple, açaí berry, raspberry and grapefruit extracts, along with vitamins A, B, C and E. Packed with antioxidants, this jelly cleanser hydrates and brightens. Questions? Let me know!

BESTE No9 JELLY CLEANSER 🐘 This cleanser contains omega 3 & 9 oils to give a more powerful cleansing. . 🐘 Ok so I didn’t like this to start with I found it super drying on my skin and I knew I wouldn’t be able to use this every day. . 🐘 I bought the Nooni Marshmallow Whip Maker (I have a post on this) which foams up cleansers so I tried this with this cleanser and it was a game changer, it no longer felt drying on my skin. Now if you don’t have that you can really wet your hands and rub them together with the cleanser until the gel turns white and foamy and then use it. I personally don’t like how I have to do this first just because I can be super lazy at times and don’t want to have to foam something up to make it work for my skin. . 🐘 This leaves your skin feeling squeaky clean so if you don’t like that feeling then you might not like this. Once you hydrate again afterwards that feeling dissipates. . 🐘 It removes make up and SPF really well and with ease. 🐘 I can feel that this stings my eyes if I get it a little too close, and I tend to do that all the time because I’m lazy and just work product in and then think about it afterward. 🐘 I’m not saying this is a bad cleanser but for me personally I prefer others that I would reach for more that do a better job. 🐘 This will last you a really long time because you only need the smallest amount to do the job. 🐘 I won’t continue to use this one as it’s not my favourite out of the 3, I may use now and again for a deeper clean.
