SUNDAY RILEY HYPE
Guys! This is seriously a gift. I have seen such a difference in my skin. I feel like my skin looks smoother, my pores have gotten a little smaller, and I seem to have a more even texture. This is the only new addition to my many skin care routines, so I definitely am thinking it’s due this serum. Look out because I’m going to be posting so many of my routines very soon 💕 SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment I am loving this so far. I truly see a difference. It can be a little hard to rub into the skin. I do wish it was a bit easier to get an even spread. I find that if I put tiny dots everywhere then I get better coverage. Before I really rub it in, I put one of my night serums with it and it’s easier to get even coverage. If it was easier to get even coverage then I would totally give it 5 stars. And the fact that it’s ridiculously expensive 😩😩 BUT my mini one has lasted me for a hot min now. I use it day and night. So I might be cheap and just keep getting the travel size one hahaha.

Oils for acne
Recently, I have been on a beauty oil kick. My skin ranges from normal to dry and I seek hydration in any product I can. Sometimes, my skin can become acne prone if I’ve been stressing out, so I wanted to find an oil that hydrates the skin but also aids in reducing blemishes without irritating sensitive skin. A lot to ask for from an oil, huh? BUT, I think I’ve found it ☺️ The Beauty Foundry Tea Tree Beauty Oil caught my eye due to its claims and it’s price! Here is some background: “The Beauty Foundry Tea Tree Beauty Oil effectively clarifies and balances blemish-prone complexions with the purifying benefits of Tea Tree and Rosemary. The breakthrough formula contains a detoxifying blend of botanicals and the highest concentration of Tea Tree to refresh and rejuvenate for toned, hydrated skin.

At The Beauty Foundry, we take pride in bringing you functional, results-driven formulations. All of the ingredients are consciously sourced, creating clean, non-toxic, nutrient-rich beauty products that effectively address a multitude of skin concerns. *No Parabens, No Silicones, No GMO’s, No Animal Cruelty* Features & details * Uniquely formulated with effective ingredients for acne-prone skin * Helps to clarify, balance, and detoxify stressed complexions * Helps diminish the appearance of pores, blemishes, and uneven skin tone * Nourishes to support clear, healthy looking skin * Infused with Tea Tree, Rosemary, Squalane, Coconut, and Vitamin E” I have been using this product for two-ish weeks and I have been impressed so far. The facial oil is hydrating and soothing to my skin. It clarifies and balances my complexion in a gentle way. I have seen a decline in my blemishes, as well, which is very promising! I like that this product is gentle and that it nourishes my skin. The consistency of this oil is not too thick and not too thin. It is that perfect in-the-middle-of-the-road consistency. The fragrance and scent of the tea tree and rosemary is very pleasant, as well. Overall, I do recommend this product because it shows results and it is gentle. I like how affordable this oil is. It ranges from $6-$14 for 2fl oz depending on where you purchase it. The oil can be found at Amazon and at Tjmaxx. I think that it is worth the price. This product has my stamp of approval and a 5/5 star rating from me ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Rocking Retinol For My Huge Pores And Uneven Skin
Ingredient: Retinol Product: PETER THOMAS ROTH - Retinol Fusion PM Night Serum I discovered this product while looking for retinol reviews on YouTube. I came across two YouTubers who were both raving about Peter Thomas Roth Retinol night serum. Retinol promises to help the renewal of your skin’s upper surface to reveal a younger, healthier skin layer. It also helps in shrinking huge pores, tighten it, and even out skin tone. Sounds too good, right? I checked this serum online and I was lucky to see that it’s 50% off so I didn’t think twice, and immediately purchased it. This product is light, clear, almost like water. It feels like light oil on my face when I apply it. On nights when I use it, I start off with my usual double cleanse routine, then I wait for an hour for my face to be completely dry before I apply this on. It’s integral that your face is 100% dry as retinol apparently reacts with water so make sure that when you use retinol products, you wait long enough for your face to be totally dry. I started using this about 2 weeks ago, and I use it very sparingly as I also use Biologique Recherche Lotion P50T. They’re both acid-based so I try to be super careful so as not to introduce too much acid on my face. I’ve seen a massive difference in my skin’s texture but I notice that when I use this, I get a small pimple the next morning. Maybe it’s the reaction of my skin to this product and the Lotion P50T. I haven’t noticed any difference in the size of my pores but my skin feels amazingly soft and smooth. Love this and will continue using it.

Eye Serum for Fine Lines - Hyaluronic Acid to the Rescue!
My grandma instilled in me as a little girl – “Take care of your skin early-on!” When I was 13, I began taking care of my skin against acne and concurrently anti-aging. Now, over 12 years later, I think my skin has significantly benefited from the early attention to fine lines and all-around health. Eyes tell the story of your soul, and we want them to shine bright! We all battle with fine lines appearing and fighting the tests of time, but you do not want the skin around your eyes to pay the cost. I have always experienced difficulty with eye creams because: · If I apply the eye cream too low, it will cause acne on my sensitive-skin and cheeks. · If I apply the eye cream too high, it creeps into my eye in the middle of the night and I’m temporarily blinded and in searing pain! This sounds ridiculous, but I have come to the conclusion that it is my long eyelashes pulling the product into my eyes to the point of stinging and burning. Therefore, I have to be very careful about the products I use as well as their placement. Favorite Product to Date Since many eye products have not worked for me, I have opted for an anti-aging moisturizer that incorporates Hyaluronic Acid into a serum. It is delicate, very gentle, and effective (without blinding me!) My favorite recent discovery is the Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Grace & Stella. I found this product through my Fab Fit Fun box subscription, a cosmetology and lifestyle service that sends trendy beauty products to your door once per season. Why I Love It The reasons that I love this specific serum by Grace and Stella includes: · Paraben & fragrance-free · A non-toxic beauty brand that I trust · I can use on my entire face, all wrinkles, and fine lines (not just around eyes) · The formula is incredibly soft, lightweight, and feels ultra-hydrating · Removes blemishes, acne scarring, and fine lines simultaneously – As a 25-year-old battling multiple skin concerns, this is what I need out of a product! You can easily spend hundreds on numerous products, but this is a great all-in-one option. Why Hyaluronic Acid? Some of the benefits of hyaluronic acid include: · Adds a moisturizing effect to the skin that ‘plumps’ out fine lines and sunken wrinkles · Adds suppleness as a humectant (humectant is a natural moisturizer that draws water from deeper layers of skin cells, essentially acting as a sponge on your skin for hydration) · Generates cell renewal so that your brightest and freshest skin layers are resurfaced daily · Related to cell turnover, pigmentation issues decrease (such as age spots) · Protects your lipid barrier, leaving the skin resilient against free radicals and external toxins, such as pollution. These are just some basic facts that drew me to hyaluronic acid, but always do your own research to know if a product or chemical is a good match for your skin type. Nearly half of my life has been dedicated to proper skin-care. Due to this, I recommend you start hunting for those best-fitting products sooner rather than later. Science, dermatologists, and countless studies have proven that it is nearly impossible to remove a wrinkle once it has solidified. Therefore - prevention is the best treatment!

CSLA Anti Aging Serum
This is the anti-aging serum sold at Corrective Skincare! This serum with pure retinol improved the appearance of my pores while preventing breakouts. A thick layer of this serum provided lots of moisture while firming and plumping my skin, I’ve seen amazing results especially under my eyes. It is great for most skin types, but if you have sensitive skin, I’m not sure how you’d incorporate this retinol 0.5 in your routine. This serum has a lot help with some discoloration. I’m not saying toss out your vitamin C products, but I did notice brightening! Because the ingredients have no preservatives, it’s best that this product is kept in the fridge. I was informed that outside of the fridge the self life is 2-3 months, in the fridge 4-6months. It retails for $64 which I find pretty average for good retinol products, but there are brands like The Ordinary and The Inkey List that provides GREAT quality for a fraction of the price. I loved using this product after a dermal infusion treatment because it was like the best in making sure I was heavily hydrated! I want to look into another anti-aging, maybe from Paula’s Choice.
Undecided on cult favorite
I am still up in the air on how I like this “well loved” serum. For me, the first time I started using it I noticed breakouts. So I held off and gave it another try. Again, with some small breakouts. Now, here I am going to give it a third try as it claims to be a very clean formula and is packed full of “superstar” ingredients. I just don’t want to give up on it. The previous times I tested it my skin was very sensitive and I was dealing with other stressors in life which could cause the breakouts. Now I feel ready to give it a chance once again and hoping it won’t let me done. If not, I gave it a fair go and time to put it to rest... What is for: Dullness and uneven skin tone Rough skin texture Wrinkles, fine lines, sagging Dehydrated skin (Alicia's Tip: dehydrated skin lacks moisture. Oily skin types can have dehydrated skin, too) Redness, inflammation Ingredients: Peach Extract: full of vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids to help keep skin resilient Niacinamide: helps quell inflammation, brighten and provide antioxidative benefits Asian Mountain Yam Extract: dramatically helps to reduce flakiness Madecassoide: derived from Centella Asiatica Extract, it helps curb inflammation and stimulate collagen production Hyaluronic Acid Complex: a proprietary blend of short-chain, medium-chain and long-chain hyaluronic acid molecules that moisturizes every layer of skin, leaving it hydrated, plumped and radiant Peptide Complex: a proprietary blend of peptides that signals collagen production, helping fill fine lines and deeply-etched wrinkles, while firming skin for a smoother, glassier appearance #CherieCreator
