MASK UPDATE
MASK UPDATE
Now that I’ve used this product multiple times, I feel like I can give a better review on it. So again it feels very cool and minty. There’s a little tingling once you get towards the end of the 10 minutes, but not super painful of course. It’s not the easiest to wash off, but the results make it worth it. I bought this mask to get rid of sebaceous filaments (commonly mistaken for blackheads) and let me tell you... this stuff REALLY works!!! After only about 2 or 3 uses, I could see a difference! I had so many sebaceous filaments all on my nose and chin. I’d spend hours squeezing each one to try to get rid of them, but this mask basically did all that work for me! I’m telling you guys, if you have a lot of blackhead looking things on your face, definitely buy this mask! It is like magic! Of course my pimples and stuff haven’t gone away completely, but my nose and chin are looking a lot better! I definitely 100% recommend this product!!!

SULFUR SOAP
SULFUR SOAP
so I bought this sulfur soap for super cheap (like $3 I think). it’s called THE GRANDPA SOAP CO. - Face & Body Bar Soap Thylox Acne Treatment. my first impression is it feels really weird. it lathered you need nice but made my face feel.. weird. i don’t know how to describe it. maybe like waxy? anyways, sulfur soap is supposed to be good for acne when used 2-3 times a week. sulfur has anti-fungal, antibacterial, and keratolytic activity. sulfur soap can treat a lot of dermatological conditions including regular acne and rosacea. i will let y’all know if this stuff actually works but y’all should definitely try it!

SKIN PROGRESS *ignore the ugly lol*
SKIN PROGRESS *ignore the ugly lol*
so this is my most recent curology update photo. i think my skin is doing really well! i still 100% recommend curology. like my face has never looked better. first off, my provider actually updated my formula from 2% azelaic acid to 8%. i definitely felt this, the formula has more of a burning sensation now, which i feel like means it’s working idk. I’ve been using the Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque like 2-3 times a week and it is AMAZING. i actually saw progress the SECOND time I used it. it got rid of most of the sebaceous filaments (blackhead looking things) on my nose and chin!!! this product is a must! i LOVE my new VANICREAM - Free & Clear Liquid Cleanser it literally is so soft and soapy. you can tell it’s for sensitive skin. i feel like there’s absolutely no bad ingredients in it. it’s probably THE best cleanser I’ve ever used fr. anyways my skin is clearing up nicely besides a few pimples here and there. ive been drinking more water as well which is helping. will keep y’all posted!

JUST RECEIVED! HAUL!
JUST RECEIVED! HAUL!
so i just received in the mail VANICREAM - Free & Clear Liquid Cleanserand Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque. (still waiting on the sulfur soap i ordered) im really excited to try these products! im going to be trying them right now before i do my makeup for the day! so here’s my review: FREE & CLEAR LIQUID CLEANSER: The cleanser foamed up/lathered up very nicely. After washing my face, my face felt very healthy. No redness. No irritation. Nothing. It’s supposed to be a gentle cleanser for sensitive skin, but so far I’d recommend this product. MINT JULEP MASQUE: I applied a thin layer of the mask. It was kinda hard to apply but not complaining lol. It feels very cool, not really any burning or tingling. Just a cool sensation. I bought this to supposedly help with sebaceous filaments (often confused with black heads). I will let y’all know in the future if actually helped with that. After washing my face, my face felt very cool and refreshed. PS: I also got these things at Walmart that you use to wash your face. supposedly they help exfoliate. I’ve used it twice so far and I like it but not sure if it actually helps. if anyone’s interested, they’re called lil scrubbies and I got them at Walmart.

COSDNA.COM

ok this is basically just a ~shout out~ to cosDNA.com AND to my curology provider. if you go on curology’s website, they talk about this a lot, but basically cosDNA.com is a website where you can enter in the product name of almost A N Y cosmetic product (makeup, skincare, even body wash) and it pulls up a list for you. you select the right one (aka the product you are specifically searching for) and it tells you if theres any harmful ingredients in the product you searched. honestly, it’s crazy because you could be wondering “why isn’t this product working for me?!” when it claims it removes blackheads or gets rid of redness and acne scarring or WHATEVER it claims it does. and then you go search it on the website and you see that it has a 7 for some ingredient in the acne or irritant column. anyways, it’s really easy to use, super self-explanatory! personally, i would use this website to research or AT LEAST check a new product before buying. or you can check the products you’re currently using and if they’re bad, you can use it to research new products! i’m also including pictures of my research based on a message my curology provider sent. i told her that i felt like i wasn’t seeing much progress, but she told me she ~did~ see progress but she also gave me a bunch of recommendations. (i’ve checked all of these on cosDNA fyi) the first are gentle cleansers that won’t clog pores, cause acne, cause redness/irritation, etc. the second is products to help with sebaceous filaments (which are v often confused with blackheads). she specifically recommended the Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque, Oily and Acne Prone Skin(the rest are just ones i found). and then the last page is different sulfur soaps to help with overall acne. i tagged the products that i ordered in the pics! i’ll let y’all know if i like them or not after i receive them and use them! products i ordered: VANICREAM - Free & Clear Liquid Cleanser Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque, Oily and Acne Prone Skin THE GRANDPA SOAP CO. - Face & Body Bar Soap Thylox Acne Treatment FORMULA 10.0.6 - Thirst No More Moisturizer

MY SKINCARE JOURNEY SO FAR
MY SKINCARE JOURNEY SO FAR
this is my first post lol but anyways I’ve tried sooo many products (just like everyone else who struggles with acne). i don’t have a definite answer as to the magic cure (since everyone’s skin is different and what works for me might not work for you). anywaysss MY SKIN TYPE: personally, i have combination skin. my t-zone can get pretty oily but the rest of my face (mostly my cheeks) is normal. the majority of my acne is on my forehead, nose, and chin. on my forehead i get normal pimples and a few blackheads and also i have a lot of acne scars there (i also get a lot of pimples in my hairline). on my nose is pretty much all blackheads. on my chin is mostly blackheads with a few whiteheads here and there. recently, ive also been getting these small bumps (pimples) on my lower cheeks. PRODUCTS I DONT LIKE: some products that i don’t like are: ST. Ives - BLACKHEAD CLEARING GREEN TEA SCRUB . personally, it just didn’t work like it said it would. all of my acne remained no matter how long i used this face wash. CLINIQUE - Moisture Surge 72-Hour Auto-Replenishing Hydrator i used to love this moisturizer so i don’t know if they changed the formula or what. but i feel like it’s too wet and leaves my face feeling oily and just...wet. i can’t think right now of other products i don’t like. PRODUCTS I LIKE: so i got the free trial of curology a few months ago just because i kept seeing all the ads for it being so W O N D E R F U L. honestly my face started clearing up after a few weeks. it’s not TOTALLY clear yet but it’s getting there. so for now i’d definitely recommend the Curology - Curology formula especially since it’s customizable. i personally liked the Curology - The Cleanser and the Curology - The Moisturizer BUT i didn’t wanna pay so much for skincare products every month so instead, i found that curology actually recommends face washes and moisturizers on its website. i’ve been using Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser which it’s not my FAV but it does it’s job pretty well. curology basically recommends any gentle cleanser so there’s my recommendation. as for moisturizer, i’ve been using Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Gel-Cream and it works great! it’s not too oily and it works! i actually just ran out of it (and im planning on trying FORMULA 10.0.6 - Thirst No More Moisturizernext so yeah) That’s all for now :))
