jay58There’s lots of great k-beauty cleansing oils, but I love the Tatcha camellia cleansing oil! Little more expensive than glow recipe, but you also get more product!

GREEN GUY, DID YOU BREAK ME OUTTTT???
What do you have to do when the whole internet talk about “DOULE CLEANSING”. I don’t wear any makeup but i have heavy moisturizer and sunscreen so I decided to try. And all point to the same product FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm Ok, i got it, what you have to do, head to Sephora and pick it up. Hold it in hand, i’m feel so happy 😂😂😂 I use it immediately the night i got it, i have to say: i love the color, i love the smell... the texture look like rock at the first sight but when you use the scoop, it actually like butter. I’m in love 🥺🥺🥺 When i use the balm, it’s very easy to spread, melt quickly. I added some water and it transfer to liquid. After that, i pair with my usual cleanser. After the first night, my face had small pimples. But not a problem. I still try the balm... the second day, more pimples coming, bigger qnd bigger. Painful, redness and itching 😭😭😭 And finally, after 3 days trying, i can feel my face screaming “I DON’T LIKE THAT GUY, THE GREEN GUY” 🤢 So i guess i have to come back with my lovely micellar waterBIODERMA - Sensibio H2O Soothing Micellar Cleansing Water this is is light like water, made my face feel nothing, but i have wipe my face about 3 times to make sure it’s clean. I will going to return FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm i thought that “my green dream”. If you have any cleaning balm good for acne, oily skin. Please, tell me. I appreciate 🥰🥰🥰
My January 2021 empties
Looks like I emptied many of the cleansing products. Star of the month goes to: Bronze - BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream likely to repurchase when finished other eye cream inventories. This is somewhat rich eye cream and glide on easily. Silver - FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm got silver just because it has attracted everyone’s attention. I still have one big jar to go then will try something else after. Gold - DHC - DHC Lip Cream this is something I can’t live without and will never trade for anything else. Will definitely keep repurchasing!
My Power Tools for Winter! 🤺 Stay Hydrated 💦
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - POWER OF DREAMS KIT with AHA + Vitamin C I bought this duo product about a week ago from Sephora. I’ve been reading reviews on this product for over a week now. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. It was on sale as well so y’all know I had to do it for the one time! 😭 I was skeptical because I have sensitive skin. But so far so good :) my skin is currently clearing itself (kind of purging but not in a horrible way. I feel like I need it because my pores have been clogged up) it’s also been lightening itself up thanks to ➡️ insta natural - Vitamin C Cleanser, Anti-Aging (oh yeah this Vita C cleanser is amazing. I have dark spots and it has helped me tremendously w/ the “natural” glow) ⬅️ But anyways! Back to Youth to the People and it’s loveliness. My favorite part about this duo is the Mask 😍. It smells amazing and it leaves my skin feeling super hydrated and might I add, Soft 🤤 After I’m finished with the mask I apply my belif - The True Cream Aqua Bomb THISSSS STUFF IS ICE FOR YA FACE 😩 💧 it feels so good going on (it takes a lil second to absorb) and leaves my skin hydrated af. Since starting this new night regime, my skin has started to clear itself up and also lighten itself. My pores have noticeable started to shrink as well. (My pores are my biggest pet peeve) But I’m going to keep you guys updated and I will post a picture with no make up soon 💓🖤 Peace N Love Fam 🦋
Dream Mask of your dreams!
The Superberry Hydrate + Dream Mask from YTTP truly surprised me in texture, hydration power, and quality. Having previously had issues with YTTP’s hydration capabilities in the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi , I was skeptical this overnight moisturizer would be able to stand up to the task. I was pleasantly surprised to find this product not only hydrates fast but effectively! A small amount goes a long way (which, don’t we all love?) and the texture is as dreamy as the name of the product! It spreads so smoothly and absorbs fast. The ingredients are Sephora Clean approved and are truly Superberry based on the scent. Unfortunately, I do not personally like highly fragranced products so this was a bit strong for me, but I was willing to suck it up for the hydration benefits. This cream smells very fruity and can be a bit overpowering. Another downside was how tacky it leaves my face feeling after application. I tried using even the smallest amount to test whether I was over applying and it still left a tacky-to-the-touch feeling. This wasn’t a dealbreaker for me but it is an unpleasant quality for a moisturizer. The Power of Dreams Kit retails for $24.00 Full size Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask retails for $48.00 YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - POWER OF DREAMS KIT with AHA + Vitamin C YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask

Papaya, glow or no?
I have been using the glow recipe papaya enzyme sorbet cleansing balm as my first cleanse for the last 2 months or so. This balm when emulsified turns into an oil. Using the enzymatic properties of papaya, it is suppose to gently exfoliate leaving you with clean soft skin. The packaging describes this balm as make-up melting and soothing. It takes my makeup off soooo easily, it really does melt. The only con I would say is that it takes more effort to wash off than other balms. For this reason I personally prefer Farmacy’s Green Clean cleansing balm, but this is a solid product. GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm
Sensitive/oily acne-prone skin journey
I recently turned 40, and about a year ago I started working on helping my aging acne-prone skin. I really improved using sunscreen and started using treatments like retinol. Have had some red irritated skin, when I’m not careful but slowly improving. GLOW RECIPE - Papaya Sorbet Smoothing Enzyme Cleansing Balm Started double cleansing at night, love the texture and it doesn’t break me out! KORRES - Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser So gentle yet perfect cleanser for me. INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner This is a Holy Grail moisturizing toner! Hydrates and is so gentle! EMINENCE - Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum Moisturizes and helps breakouts. EMINENCE - Clear Skin Probiotic Moisturizer So moisturizing and calming. BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Zinc Sheer Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 PA +++ First sunscreen I’ve found that didn’t break me out or irritate my skin. Rotating Treatments PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator Helps my acne prone skin but doesn’t irritate. Using a couple times a week. Marie Veronique Gentle Retinol Night serum- Love this! Expensive but I haven’t found a dupe yet. ACNE FREE - Adapalene Gel USP 15G I use this once a week but have to be super careful. facetheory - PoreBright Serum N10 Helps oiliness and brightens skin. THE inkey LIST - 15% Vitamin C and EGF Fist vitamin C serum that didn’t irritate my skin or break me out.

So far I started out my day with one of Drunk Elephants infamous “Face Smoothies” I washed my face with Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser & then combined C-Firma Day Serum, Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil, & Protini Polypeptide Cream together on my mixing trey with a disposable skincare spatula! I applied it all over my face & neck. Once that absorbed, I applied Umbra Tinte Daily Defense SPF 30 over my face & neck & was done!

My favourite cleanser
Allies of Skin - Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser It is a pretty amazing cleanser with a pH of 5.5. It is a blend of Antioxidants, Phospholipids, Green tea, White tea, Lactic Acid and Hydrators like Silk Amino Acids, Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Safflower + Moringa Oil. It is sulfate free, no silicones, no drying alcohols, no dyes. It works to restore a dull complexion with a brighter, smoother and more refreshed look. It has no added fragrance and I like the natural mild scent of the cleanser. It is for all skin type This is a very gentle cleanser with a jelly like texture and doesn’t strip my skin. It gently removes dirt, grime and make-up and my skin never feels tight or dry. I really like that it has ingredients which hydrate the skin along with cleansing it. My face feels fresh, clean and soft. I have been using this for more than a month. I am loving this cleanser and it has become my favourite cleanser too. The price is $38 for 100 ml and it is worth it. I highly recommend this cleanser, it is gentle and effective.
Allies of Skin-Molecular Silk Amino Hydrating Cleanser
a lil sink shot featuring some things i’ve been loving lately 💡 i’ve been really into this ernolaszlonyc phelityl pre-cleansing oil, which dissolves oils, impurities, and makeup before going in with a second cleanse. it leaves my skin really soft and i only need the TINIEST amount. it really goes a long way. my favorite use for this though, aside from being a first cleanse, is actually as a cuticle oil! i also can’t rave enough about the new farmacy honeymoon glow night serum ... oh my god. this stuff is so good to my skin! i don’t think my skin has ever been as soft as it is right now. i alternate this with my paulaschoice BHA exfoliant, and my skin is loving this combo 💭 i’m definitely going to be repurchasing this in the future. 🍯
FARMACY-Honeymoon Glow Serum
I wanted to share some new favorites I discovered last week! ♡ First up is the conture skincare 2 in 1 kit. It shaved away the peach fuzz & polishes skin. I haven’t used the polisher yet, but I really like the shave attachment! Keeping your face free of peach fuzz helps your skincare penetrate better & it gives a more polished, smooth, and glowy look. It’s available at Sephora too! ♡ Eve Lom gel to balm cleanser is one of the best cleansers I’ve ever used. It’s perfectly balanced as well & doesn’t strip my skin while removing every trace of makeup! Some people use this as a first cleanse but I use it as a second cleanse. ♡ flesh beauty highlighter stick in Pinky, the illuminating primer, & eye/cheek gloss. This is such a fun makeup brand & beautifully packaged! ♡ georgette klinger makeup remover & vitamin c mask. The makeup remover came in handy last night because I was up late & just wanted to get to bed. It’s a wipe off lotion type remover & it worked quick & like a charm! ♡ twice toothpaste comes in a morning & night flavor with great ingredients! I didn’t expect to like these as much as I do but they’re really good. Everything you need in a toothpaste & nothing you don’t. The duo is $32 & comes in a subscription service too! ♡ My Dream mask by Youth to the people is almost empty & I will be repurchasing! I absolutely love this one. The ingredients are amazing & gives me the plumpest skin the next day! ♡ drunk elephant Baby Facial a forever favorite every Sunday & I’ve been using the Framboos again once or twice a week again too. I actually forgot how good that stuff was.
EVE LOM-Gel Balm Cleanser
Indie Lee Cleanser 😮
I have some thoughts on the INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser !!! This cleanser is meant to brighten the skin and gently exfoliate with fruit enzyme activity. It smells slightly of strawberries (which it is made with!). It’s a great cleanser for all skin types. I enjoy using this cleanser, as it’s super gentle and doesn’t make my skin feel tight at all. The texture as you can see is a bouncy gel consistency. It doesn’t lather up like crazy, but that doesn’t bother me too much. I give this a 3/5 ⭐️ rating, and I’m knocking the two stars off due to the bottle...as you can see the pump gets stuck EVERY time I use this! For $34, I expect the pump to work, so I don’t find this product worth that price due to the logistics of the bottle. Maybe mine is a fluke but it’s really upsetting to me, because I like the cleanser overall!! Does your bottle have this problem?

Happy Earth Day! 🌎🌿 Youth to the People might be my favorite skincare brand of all time for so many reasons beyond their amazing products and formulations. They are constantly using their platform to better their community and the world. This week Youth to the People launched their #OneWorldChallenge this challenge is to be done on Instagram but I just want to spread the word and highlight this brand for taking this initiative. The challenge is really not that challenging at all, it is a way to get people to do little things that can help lower their carbon footprint and get them in a good habit to promote sustainability. *I know this isn’t a product review, but if you’re interested in the Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial check out our IG page @the.top.shelf.edit💚💙

Superfood cleanser 🥬
I got this sample in a Sephora favorites kit. I looked it up and it’s pretty pricey, 8oz for $36. Once I started using this I fell in love. Even after one use I felt my skin really soft and smooth. On my dry areas I didn’t have any tight feeling and on my oily forehead it didn’t strip my skin. I was able to use this cleanser 6 times. You don’t need a lot to wash your face. This didn’t irritate my sensitive skin! I also just got a tattoo and I’ve been wanting a clean cleanser and I’ve been using this on it. Sometimes I like using a gentle cleanser on my tattoo and this is what I use, does not irritate my tattoo at all!! I love that the packaging is made of glass. Youth to the people is a clean Cruelty-free vegan brand. This has vitamin E, C and K. A good amount of vitamin K comes from the kale in this cleanser. It also has alfalfa extract. It’s great since alfalfa extract keeps dry skin moisturized and helps remove excess oil on oily skin without stripping it. It’s a great antioxidant and helps soothe skin. I can’t wait till my full size arrives. Definitely worth it in my opinion and I already got my mom hooked on this cleanser.🧼 #YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Cleanser[products]#[FiveStars]
