Should you keep that product in the fridge?
One thing that I, up until I found this chart, was really confused about was wether or not I could OR SHOULD keep a certain skincare product in the fridge. Keep this guide handy ❤️ What you should know— It is not necessary to keep your skin care products in the fridge unless stated otherwise in the storing directions. However, if you feel like giving your skin a cool treat, you can always follow the tips provided below when popping in CERTAIN skin care products, like face masks or eye cream in the fridge. Natural skincare— If you are using preservative-free, natural skincare products, you’ll find great benefits in storing them in the fridge as it can help ward off bacteria and prolong the products’ shelf life. Since they don’t contain preservatives, organic and natural products are more likely to decompose quicker and become a breeding ground for bacteria. This bacteria can cause acne and other skin problems when applied! Apart from extending the products’ shelf life, refrigerating your moisturizer, serum, toner and mask can deliver a cooling effect that can help constrict blood vessels. It’s like a cold compress for the skin that reduces under eye-bags, calms inflammation and tightens the look of the pores. Refrigerating these products is especially beneficial for those with blotchy, easily-irritated red skin (rosacea or erythema) as it can work wonders in calming the inflamed skin almost instantly. Final thoughts 💭 Remember that refrigeration does not equate to preservation. Storing your products in the fridge only slows down the growth of bacteria and does not totally kill them off. While applying cold cream on your face during the dog days of summer feels refreshing, it doesn’t mean that it can double its effect. Experts advise that chilling skincare products does not contribute any additional therapeutic effect as cooler doesn’t always mean better. If you’re not sure about the ingredients in your skincare, then it is probably best not to store it in the fridge, unless instructed by the product usage.
Cosmetic Mini Fridge
Cooluli - Classic 4 Liter Small Mini Fridge I love how refreshing serums, eye creams, masks, face mists and jade rollers feel when they’re fresh out of the fridge! I even keep my contacts inside. The best part is this mini fridge is small enough to keep in the bathroom, so I don’t have to walk across the house every morning to enjoy cool products!

Thayers (n): a product you can always count on.
FOCUS 🎯 ￼￼￼￼ I was looking for a product that would continue to remove my acne, but I didn’t want to risk the progress I made with my skin by trying a new brand. Thayers, a brand I am currently using, has been clearing my skin. So I decided to try a different product within their brand and found this gem, Witch Hazel Blemish Clearing Pads. ABOUT WITCH HAZEL BLEMISH CLEARING PADS🍋 ￼￼￼￼￼Thayers products are natural remedies used with an Aloe Vera formula 🌱, however, this product contains 2% of salicylic acid. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼One container holds 60 exfoliating pads. Since the directions instruct you to use two a day, I use one pad in the morning and one pad in the evening. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Usually, Thayers products have a wide selection of natural aromas to choose from, but the only scent I found was lemon. RESULTS 🧐 (👍🏽 or 👎🏽) (Swipe ⬅️ left to see the progress with my acne) ￼￼￼￼After six days of using these pads, my forehead acne is clearing. I bought these pads on Saturday, May 30th, and immediately, added them to my skincare routine later that day. When I first used the pads, my skin felt tight for a minute or two; then, it felt super soft and smooth. LOCATION📍 ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼You can purchase this item at Target 🎯🐶 for $9.99. The only size I found was small.

𝐇𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐨, 𝐈’𝐦 𝐉𝐚𝐬𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐞. I’d thought I would share a brief introduction since you’ve found your way to my page. 🥳 I’m a 32 year old stay at home mommy that lives in the Eastern Shore of Maryland. (the country 🥴 lol) I’ve always loved beauty products from the time I was around my daughter’s age, playing in my mommy’s make-up and avon (she was that girl!) products. As I’ve gotten older I’ve discovered new and innovative beauty + skincare and I’m excited to see long-awaited doors opening especially for Black companies, MUA’s & estheticians in this field. 𝗪𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈 𝐚𝐦 𝐧𝐨𝐭: An Esthetician, Dermatologist or MUA. I just simply enjoy reviewing products and exchanging ideas with my friends + fam and I thought it would be cool like many others online to create my own space. There are amazing aforementioned creators in all of the professions listed above and I advise anyone who needs more information to seek advice and proper momentary compensation to them. Thank you for checking me out! I’m glad you stopped by! ✨💕
Thayers Facial Toner
Such a life saver!! I’ve tried too many products to try to help with my acne. I soon learned I have a oily face which caused the breakouts. Normally face soap didn’t work as well for me, my acne wouldn’t disappear. Until I tried Thayers Facial Toner.. I just squirt some of the liquid on to a cotton ball and rub it on my face, then all the extra oil and dirt comes with it, not allowing my face to have oil resting on it, waiting to make more zits/pimples. My face never gets dry from Thayers either, as it has Aleo Vero in it to keep the skin moisturized. I personally think the best time to use it is after a workout or after sweating, that way you can see what you just sweat off. Or I’m just weird like that I don’t really know.

Newest Skincare Purchase
StarSkin Pink Cactus Mask This was everything I wanted in a mask, hydration and glowing skin and this delivered. First using a couple drops of the picky pear cactus oil then applying the sheet mask, I usually leave the mask on for a bit longer than usual, then pat in the excess product on the face into the skin. You can also use the rest of the oil on the face if you like, I didn’t feel I needed more oil and left my skin as is. I kept feeling my skin throughout the day and it felt super hydrated and looking in the mirror I could see a glow about it. Usually when I use sheet masks the hydration wears off a bit after a few hours not with this baby StarSkin had hydrated my face all day. Cactus is amazing for hydration and high in vitamin E. The prickly pear oil is high in fatty acids which help calm the skin of inflammation and redness, it also penetrates deep into the skin so it’s not leaving an greasy residue. There are so many benefit for this oil, helping brighten pigmentation, controlling acne oils, replenishing the skins moisture and dehydration. This is my third purchase of this sheet mask and I constantly come back for more. I try and savour as much as I can when using it because I love my skins outcome after using it
