so that my boyfriend doesn’t have to hear me talk about skincare all the time ✨ NYC | 🇵🇷
The product that gave me my skin back 🥰
✨First, I am OBSESSED with the Krave brand. Second, this product is one of my HOLY GRAILS. It has saved my skin so many times. I recently got carried away with exfoliating acids like AHA and BHA, as well as applying retinol morning and night, and using too much hyaluronic acid and niacinamide. Like what was I thinking 🙄??? I got super excited with all the progress I’d been making with my skin that I just kept doing the most until my skin was literally almost not even absorbing my moisturizer. That’s when I decided to reset my routine and only apply this product on my face for one whole week. It SAVED MY SKIN BARRIER. My skin is healthy and glowy once more! ✨This is a thick serum that somehow melts into a watery consistency on your skin. It is soooo hydrating and healing. The formulation has 10% freshly extracted tamanu oil which helps with skin regeneration, as well as safflower and rosehip oil that are great for oily acne prone skin. It has 2% niacinamide, ceramides, vegan cholesterol and squalane. No fragrance, but still has a nice nutty scent from the tamanu oil. ✨PERFECT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES. It heals a weakened skin barrier, helps provide a more even skin tone by aiding with discoloration and acne marks. It is so nourishing and hydrating. You can use it as a serum or moisturizer. Literally no rules and perfect for any skin type, even the most sensitive types. ✨Krave donates 2% of all proceeds to funding the Great Barrier Reef Foundation in Australia! ✨I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT ENOUGH!!!! ❤️ To me it is a perfect product and formulation, I can’t even believe it. -J Krave - Great Barrier Relief

For all you oily people 😌
✨I live in the tropics, so my oily skin tends to get more oily and dewy with the heat and humidity here. I bought this moisturizer because I needed one that wouldn’t just sit on my face and make me look even oilier. ✨This product is specifically aimed for people on the oilier side. It is very hydrating, watery, and lightweight. It’s a gel cream that is formulated with hyaluronic acid, sea water, and antioxidants to provide a good dose of hydration. ✨WHAT I LIKE MOST: This makes my skin look MATTE, thanks to an ingredient called maltodextrin. It really feels like a makeup primer. It has other ingredients that make the product truly feel VELVETY once it’s applied on my skin. I could not believe how soft and matte it made my skin look when I first tried it. Lastly, this has other great ingredients in the formulation like coconut fruit juice, extracts from red algae, marine based polysaccharides to soothe skin, among the other goodies!!!! ✨THE BAD: I had to stop using this product because it started to burn around the corners of my nose and around my eyes. This tends to be a sensitive area for me, but when a product literally feels like it’s burning, you MUST take it off and stop using it. The same thing happened to me with the Naturium eye cream, which I also loved, but also had to stop using 🥺. I’m really not sure what is causing this, but I reached out to the brand and am waiting for a reply about any possible irritating ingredient in both of these products. I am resetting my skin routine at the moment because I was thissss close to ruining my skin barrier. So once I feel my skin is healthy enough, I’ll give this product another try. Maybe it won’t burn anymore if my skin is all healed and strong. 🤞 ✨OVERALL: This is a great product for oily skin, the formulation is great, and the price ($20) is pretty good. I’d recommend this if you are looking for a new moisturizer and tend to be on the oilier side. NATURIUM - Marine Hyaluronic Water Cream -J 🤍

✨I bought this cleanser when I was in my “clean, natural skincare ONLY” phase lol grew out of it. Anyway, I recommend the brand Osea in general if you want to delve into the natural skincare world. This organic seaweed gel cleanser is rather good at cleaning away impurities without stripping your skin. I haven’t been wearing heavy make up so I cant really say if only one cleanse does the job, but you should be going in with a cleansing balm/oil first anyway 😉 double cleanse for the win! I like to use this in the morning when I dont want to strip my skin of that nice morning glow but still want a clean base to apply my a.m. products. 🥰 ✨THE BAD: essential oilssss. I personally love the smell of this cleanser, it is super calming. I don’t have sensitivity to essential oils, so this product works for my skin. If you are more sensitive to fragrance then maybe stay away :/ BUT cleansers aren’t meant to stay on your skin for long, so a little calming scent action might not hurt. Just depends on what your skin is sensitive to or can tolerate! $48 dollars for a cleanser tho 🙄 ✨THE GOOD: this cleanser has vegan lactic acid, an AHA exfoliant that is also good at moisturizing. Go clean pores! This product also has vitamin E from jojoba seed oils, a good source of antioxidants. ✨the GOOD GOOD: algae!! Provides deep moisturization and, as the brand claims, anti-aging benefits. Honestly, don’t expect a cleanser to help too much with signs of aging (that’s why we have retinols 🤩). Seaweed is an ingredient that’s at the core of the Osea brand, and I’m really vibing with that. Just the thought of using these products gets me in my chill mode. Have you tried this brand before? Lmk in the comments! -J 🤍OSEA - Ocean Cleanser
I only use this on my NECK 😇 NOT my favorite :/
ok WHAT is this texture? First time I tried this I was like 🥴 it is SO grainy, it felt like a physical exfoliant on my skin. I went to the website to read some reviews because I thought I’d gotten a damaged product but no! Other people think the same, and it’s not too pleasant... But I’ve gotten used to it once I learned it was because of the micro-encapsulation technology in the formulation that Naturium uses in order to make the actives less irritating. You can see from the photo how grainy it is! But science, I guess lol. This product contains a blend of retinols and bakuchiol, a form of retinol derived from plants. It also has Sodium Hyaluronate, making this product quite moisturizing. Naturium also has a retinol cream, which would be even more moisturizing than this serum. Since I use Differin all over my face as my main source or retinol, I just bought this product to use on my neck 😂 I’m pretty self conscious of neck wrinkles and am paying extra attention to them (I’m 22 btw lol). Overall I think there are better retinols out there, even drugstore ones. The texture if just not smooth at all, it just feel wrong. But if you dont use retinol, please get on that asap! If you are more experienced with retinol or use tretinoin, maybe opt to use it in your neck like me 😂 lol don’t listen to me NATURIUM - Retinol Complex Serum Let me know what you think!! -J

ESSENTIAL for winter 🥶
👄I bought this lip mask during the winter in NYC. My lips were painfully cracked and red and irritated. Just applying the same moisturizer for my skin over my lips simply is not enough for me during the winter time. Since I’d heard good things about this product, I went into a Sephora on a snowy day, bought this, and immediately put it on. 👄This product saved my lips during the winter time. I used it every single night before bed, and on nights when I didn’t, I’d wake up the next morning with dry lips again. 👄What I love most about this product is the fact that it doesn’t run. It stays right on my lip area, without getting oily and propagating to areas of my face like my chin. I put it on at night after all my other products and wake up the next day and it’s completely absorbed by my lips. No residue the next morning. Usually with other lip balms, when I go to brush my teeth I can see the balm leave a film on my toothbrush lol idk do you get what I’m saying? 👄It smells very yummy and I believe it has a proper ingredient list. Won’t go into too much detail about this, but includes antioxidant and moisturizing ingredients. ALSO, this has Ascorbyl Glucoside, a Vitamin C derivative. 👄I HAVENT HAD THE NEED TO USE THIS PRODUCT DURING THE SUMMER. My lips are just fine during the summer and they dont crack or need a lot of moisturizing. Which is why this product is just sitting all lonely in my vanity right now 😢. But I’m sure once winter time comes I’ll get back on it! Did I mention this product lasts FOREVER?! You literally need the SMALLEST amount. So I think it’s worth the price!

is Tata Harper WORTH it??? 🙃
💚Will I repurchase this product??? It’s a hard MAYBE for me. For the price, I believe there are moisturizers out there that are just as good and less expensive. The moisturizer is $68 initially, and the refillable pods are $62. HOWEVER, Tata Harper products are luxurious!!! and this is why I was attracted to the brand in the first place. It’s just a very pleasant experience to use their products and have them in my vanity. Branding & packaging am i right🙄 💚Ingredients include: orange peptides, pomegranate spheres, and macro hyaluronic acid. These ingredients are supposed to create a breathable, smoothing effect. It is branded as a lightweight, silicone-free moisturizer-primer hybrid. I personally would NOT use this as a primer, as I feel it just SITS on my skin, not really absorbing and mostly leaving me quite glowy and I’m already oily. But if thats your vibe, then go for it! ALSO, this product contains AHA. 💚Since it is branded as really working mostly on the surface level of the skin, not penetrating too deeply, to prevent transepidermal water loss, I use this product at night to lock in all my other actives. It is silky and I LOVE the texture. I haven’t had any adverse effects with this moisturizer! 💚To be honest, to me it smells really yummy and citrusy/flowery. BUT I know there’s a big divide in the skin care community over FRAGRANCE so if you feel very strongly against fragrance, pretend the Tata Harper brand just doesn’t exist lol. It’s all flowery and pretty scents here. Luckily I have almost no sensitivity to fragrance, so I enjoy these products a lot! 💚ALSO I LOVE THE REFILLABLE PACKAGING! Let me know what you think!! -J

My skin loves this moisturizer!
I'm sharing today the newest product of .dear, klairs - Fundamental Water Gel Cream I haven't tried any from their Fundamental Line collection so I was very excited when @wishtrend sent over this. Their claim is "Feel Lighter, Go Deeper" as they use ‘Hydra Emulsification System’ to perfectly balanced the texture between gel and cream of this moisturizer. Aside from the texture, the key ingredients are so promising which I know most of you will like. 🌱Jeju Green Tea Water - great for skin calming, brightening, effective antioxidant, and retaining moisture. 💦Panthenol - contains Vitamin B5, good for skin hydration, calms skin irritation and delivers hydration to the deeper layer of the skin. This has a very smooth texture (swipe to see a #textureshot video) and I was pleased on how lightweight it is on my skin. It melts while I apply it and absorbs nicely; definitely going deeper on my skin. I tried layering it and it doesn't feel heavy at all (great for summer or hot/humid weather). I enjoyed using this at morning just before my sunscreen and at night too while doing a quick face massage or use it as a sleeping mask. It makes my skin soft, well hydrated, moisturized, plumped, plus it leaves a healthy glow. I'm so happy to report that this didn't give any irritation on my sensitive skin, it has no fragrance, and somehow controls my oil. If you are looking for a lightweight but nourishing moisturizer, I'll suggest to get this one!* ▪️More in my blog! https://heyitstintinb.wordpress.com

Wake up with glowy (but not oily) skin 😴
I👏🏼am👏🏼obsessed👏🏼with👏🏼glowy👏🏼skin. I am always trying to find products that give me super glowy and bright skin. I’ve really enjoyed vitamin c products and specifically with the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C SerumI think their combo of vitamin c and vitamin e is amazing (but $$$). So I’m always looking for ways to obtain a similar result. Enter, freshly juiced vitamin e mask! The good: + The texture is SO cool. It’s almost like a jello consistency and then when you start to work it in with your hands it melts into this more watery texture. It’s very cool, I haven’t tried a product like it before. + Very lightweight on the skin. + When I combine this with a vitamin c serum at night, I will wake up and my skin feels so smooth and bright. I always feel good about my skin the next morning. + Key ingredients include: vitamin e (antioxidant that brightens and works well with vitamin c), niacinimide (brightens and controls oil) and adenosine (claims to help with anti-aging). + Definitely appears to be helping my vitamin c fade some of my acne scars. There’s one in particular on my forehead that I’ve noticed a huge change in over the last few weeks. + A little goes a long way. The not so good? - I believe this is advertised as both a moisturizer and a sleeping mask. I think honestly this works best as a sleeping mask. - If you cant stand products with a slightly sticky texture, this might not be for you. - Although they claim Adenosine is a key ingredient, it’s fairly far down the ingredient list. - If you are sensitive to essential oils, I would also stay away because this product definitely has some citrus oils included (although it does smell very nice). Is it worth it? So this mask is around $25-$30 depending on where you buy it. I do think that’s a pretty fair price point actually! A little goes a long way when you use the product and the results are good. To me, worth it! Will I repurchase? If this continues to help with my acne scars, then yes, 100%. Ps I have combination (right now, it seems more oily than usual) and acne prone skin.
