Derma Roller Controversy
Oh how I have heard all kinds of horror stories as well as success stories 🤷🏻♀️. I triedZUSTBEAUTY - DERMA ROLLER KIT
Do NOT use a dermal roller if you have sensitive skin or the propensity to irritate easily.
Do NOT use a derma roller without doing the best research as you possibly can. Be careful and follow directions as precisely as instructed.My first try: It's not as scary as some people make it out to be. It is important to note that I am 34 years old and do NOT have sensitive skin. I followed directions precisely as indicated in the pamphlet. It was 0.3mm needles and they didn't hurt me. I sanitized the roller before and after. It has titanium needles. After use I applied the Vitamin C 25% Serum and the collagen cream in the kit. I feel fine. I've actually gotten hurt more by St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I would definitely not use this more than once a week. To give an adequate review I need to do for about a month. So far so good. Before the derma roll I used THE FACE SHOP - Rice Water Bright Cleansing Foam

Green clean 🌿
If you are going to have one make up remover product in your skin care stash....THIS IS IT!! I can’t rave about this enough, from the texture to the skin feel to it’s natural green smell to how it feels during and after wash. It’s hits all the marks. It’s sensitive on the skin but so effective at removing and loosening everything on the face. I haven’t noticed this creating any acne as my skin is prone to this using certain products. Its like a treat for your skin with its hydrating oily silky feel. It is a fairly reasonable price point 22 dollars at Sephora but for what it does it’s worth every penny. Highly recommend this product!! FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Removing Cleansing Balm

Deviant skincare alert!
Newest addition to my skincare family. I used the cleansing concentrate and gentle resurfacing liquid last night. Thoughts: Cleansing concentrate; didn’t quite give me that nice oil cleansing feeling when I use my biossance squalene and antioxidant cleansing oil. Next time I’ll try to use more product. Gentle resurfacing liquid- I think it brought down some bumps of irritation I got from threading my eyebrows for the first time in 4 months. I’m really afraid these bumps will become pimples or even worse dark marks so I’m trying to be as gentle to them as possible so they can go away! The teeny bumps from eyebrows are shown in the next picture. Last night they looked worse and more raised than that. As always when you use new products you need to implement them slowly into your routine so I will be using these every two days and probably try the facial oil sometime next week.

My favorite cleanser. EVER.
Let’s talk about this amazing cleanser. I purchased it for the first time last year at tjmaxx for $3 and it was really an impulse buy (like all of my skincare buys let’s just be honest 🤦🏾♀️) so I didn’t get around to using it until like a month after I bought it and that’s when I fell utterly in love with it. This was the first creamy cleanser I’d ever used and not only was it gentle but it was effective. At the time my skin wasn’t as bad as it was now. I wasn’t really into skincare but it really helped with my acne because my skin was too dry and sensitive at the time to use regular salicylic acid. After I finished my bottle it was hard for me to find a creamy cleanser that lives up to what it was until I finally found it months later again in Marshall’s. The smell of this face wash is very spearmint and toothpaste like (which is something I like but not everyone can enjoy that) and it has a very smooth texture. I enjoy the cleanser most when I use it in the shower. I usually put some warm water all of my face and then rub it in for a minute and after this let it sit with the steam of the shower penetrating it for the rest of my shower. After I get out I wash it off at the sink and my skin always feels soft, clean and hydrated, never stripped and dry. A little also goes a long way ensuring the bottle lasts a long time. This cleanser is an mvp for me all year round but ESPECIALLY in the winter when I sometimes suffer with dry patches ;-; Even though my skin is acting crazy rn I use this as my gentle cleanser both day and night (despite me reading that I should be using a gel cleanser. Im hardheaded I know 🤦🏾♀️) If you have dry skin or combination dry skin this may be a really good cleanser for you (because yk what I use may not work for you) but for $3 it’s worth a try.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
