Season change routine!💋
I am combination dry skin most of time. So basic moisturizers are essential. In addition, I pay great attention to the problem of acne-prone skin, especially for seasonal change period. so I always replace the usual moisturizing toner and serum into anti-acne products.

Expensive doesn’t mean good!!!
Where do I even begin with this product. It is so expensive and really not worth the hype. I am so sad I wasted my money that I occasionally use it as a hand cream so it doesn’t go to waste. It has so many rave reviews it honestly makes me question if they are legitimate. I will delve into what this product is supposed to do. What it does: ￼￼hydrates ￼￼restores comfort and radiance ￼￼restores tone and suppleness What’s in it: ￼￼ginseng ￼￼Rosemary ￼￼hops ￼￼horsetail ￼￼centella asiatica sisley - Ecological Compound I’m giving this a 1/5. This is a whopping $250 and in my opinion did NOTHING for my skin. If anything it made it worse because it broke me out and I had to get a facial to clean my pores after using this. I’m not too surprised after looking at the ingredient list. It has MINERAL OIL, fragrance and parabens. It has such a strong smell. Not the kind of smell that’s natural but really fragranced like a perfume. I would never put this on my face again. There are so many other products out there with ginseng sans the harmful chemicals. Hope you enjoyed my review :)
$170 = all-round player?🔥
Acne. Oily. As sensitive and acne skin, when I started to use this product, the first feeling is the texture is too oil and seems like make no influence on my skin. But I gradually found that my skin began to become stable, acne also appeared less. It won't give you that amazing feeling of getting up the next day, but as long as you keep using it, your skin will get better. For girls who want to take good care of skin, Sisley Ecological Compound is a good choice. Because I am oil skin, I only use Ecological Compound in spring and summer. In fall and winter, I will superimpose essential oils and so on. This 125ml bottle is very durable and can last for three months for me. In fact, for the brand like Sisley or La mer, I always think that the brand level was improved by raising the products’ price. So I question the efficacy of the product before I decided to buy this. This Ecological Compound is recommended by a friend of mine. I remember the price is about $170, which is quite high. If you don't care about the price, this product is really good. The ingredient of centella in it has a strong repairing effect on the skin. I used it for about a week, and my boyfriend said that my skin became better and brighter. Be honest, this product is good, but the cost performance is not. Sisley Ecological Compound is the basic product in Sisley brand. But this product support the whole Sisley product line. Compared to other products of Sisley, Ecological Compound is hyped and cheap. For me, this product has done a good job on moisturizing and repairing, and also helped to brighten my skin tone. However, still that word, if you have money, ok, buy it and keep using it. If not, you can try other products which can get the similar effect and have higher cost performance. sisley - Ecological Compound
My new lover brand❤️
SkinCeuticals has been my favorite brand so far. Trust me! If you are dry skin, go to buy its products quickly, none of them will disappointing! I've tried Equalizing Toner, Hydrating B5, H.A. Intensifier, discoloration defense, and Phyto Corrective Gel. All products are still in use! Today I want to focus on Equalizing Toner. I seldom change my toner. It's either the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence or Shiseido Eudermine Revitalizing that I use all year round. This toner is a new attempt. Equalizing Toner is very durable and has high cost-effective. Each bottle has 250ml, as long as $34. Unlike other products of this brand are almost in glass bottles design, the toner is an ordinary plastic bottle with a spray nozzle. The texture is very fresh, no alcohol, no oil, no strange smell! Ingredient: 1. Light oxy acid It can help to remove aging horniness. 2. 2% comprehensive Alpha Hydroxy Acid This can gently sloughs off dead skin cells and accelerates natural exfoliation. 3. It contains Hamamelis, Platycodon, aloe, sugarcane and other plant ingredients. They can clear excess oil and help skin maintain softness. If you are sensitive skin, be careful to use this product, it will make you feel some tingling. So when you apply it, remember to close your eyes. Otherwise it will stimulate your eyes. If you want this product to be amazing effect, it does not…if you just pursue the fresh feeling, yes! It does! Sales suggested that I press it with cotton pad, which can be used mildly, but I was too lazy. So every time I just spray it on my face. Don't follow me, because my skin is not too sensitive. If you are sensitive, don't do it! SKINCEUTICALS - Equalizing Toner

You’re new best friend HYALURONIC ACID
Hyaluronic acid? Who is she? She’s your new best friend also called “hyaluronan” hyaluronic acid is found naturally in your body, it’s in your eyes, skin, and connective tissue (she does it all.) hyaluronic acid main function is to retain moisture, it can hold up to 1000x times it weight in moisture! So what is it gonna do? It is going to trap that moisture from the air suck it in and slap it right onto your pretty perfect face And keep your skin hydrated, smooth, plump, and cute! Once it does that it’s actually going to tell your sebaceous gland to slow down on the production of sebum, so if you have oily dehydrated skin this will work the wonders you’ve been looking for. Hyaluronic has plentiful of Benefits, it helps wounds especially from acne so it will help heal instead of scar. Sense your body produces hyaluronic acid it’s actually very rare for someone to have allergic reaction to this ingredient! What I’ve done is put together 3 products ranging from $5 to $100 let’s say hi and talk about them! The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 the ordinary brand has been making its way across social media and I have to say for around $5 you can’t beat it, it has 15 forms of hyaluronic acid & B5 that enhances hydration but one of the negatives is that it has a PH level of 6-7.5 your skin needs to stay between 4.5-5.5 so after using this product you will need a nice toner to bring your skin balance back down to the proper PH. PAULA'S CHOICE - Hyaluronic Acid Booster Paulas choice has been around for A long time! She knows what she’s doing out there 💋 after water hyaluronic is the 3rd ingredient in this product and has been apart of 7 RESEARCH STUDYS SENSE 2003! For a whopping $36 I think if you have the extra coin to try it! Now with this product there are more Pro reviews than there are CONS but on the CON side the main issue seems to be people are having reactions to other ingredients in this product. SKINCEUTICALS - Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier Serum THIS RIGHT HERE! She is one of the top products recommended by dermatologist out on the market she goes for a hefty $100 but lets dive a little deeper, 10% proxy lane which helps the hyaluronic acid levels on your skin stay balanced for a longer time 0.2% purple rice extract, helps preserve hyaluronic acid 1.3% hyaluronic acid (this is the golden number of how much hyaluronic acid you would want in a product) With these ingredients it’s amplifies hyaluronic acid by 30%! Hope this helped you beautiful people out just a little, please follow me for more product knowledge and next time we will dig deeper into KNOWING YOUR CORRECT SKIN TYPE! Stay beautiful stay sexy, you all are perfect the way you are💋❤️
SKINCEUTICALS REVIEW ✨✨✨
Testing out this Skinceuticals lineup 🥰 I really enjoyed all of the products pictured! they felt amazing and my skin is looking glowy, bright and hydrated this evening Skinceuticals pioneered the term “cosmeceuticals”: cosmetic products with biologically active ingredients claiming to enhance skincare efficacy. All formulas are based on optimal concentrations of active ingredients elegantly crafted into functional products- designed, formulated, and tested for effectiveness. 1st pic: SKINCEUTICALS - Phyto + Hydrating Botanical Serum With Kojic Acid discoloration correcting botanical serum with kojic acid that hydrates and soothes SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel : really nice hydrating serum with vitamin B5 (panthenol), is super silky and great at plumping and softening skin SKINCEUTICALS - Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier Serum : another nice hydrating serum! Felt light but very hydrating, had an interesting color and consistency, layered well SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum : really nice vitamin C serum 😍 also has vitamin E and Ferulic acid. This is a light yet effective antioxidant serum that reduces oxidative damage from free radicals, brightens skin and reduces fine lines/wrinkles. Love it! Also very layerable (everything in this lineup is) SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Mask : a clear gel that felt surprisingly rich in a way, it instantly melted onto my skin and infused the surface with hydration! This formula also has vitamin B5 (panthenol) which is incredible for softening, plumping, and soothing. I’ve seen the benefits of this ingredient from some of my hair products as well SKINCEUTICALS - Retinol 0.5 Retinol Night Cream : I applied this on my neck just to test, the texture was felt nice and didn’t irritate my skin at all
I’d Rather Get A Coal Than These Hyped Products
Skin type: combination, oily T-zone in summer/ dry in winter LANCÔME Tonique Confort Re-Hydrating Comforting Toner with Acacia Honey Price: $54 for 400ml LANCÔME - Tonique Confort Comforting Rehydrating Toner Main ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Cyclopentasiloxane, Phenoxyethanol, Isopropyl Palmitate, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil This toner can be said one the worst toners I’ve ever used. I bought it because it was sooo popular on the Internet. And compare to other products from LANCÔME, this toner is affordable. I thought it would be fantastic as what others said about it. But it really disappointed me. It says that it is a silky, soothing, and moisturizing toner that gently purifies and rehydrates dry and sensitive skin. Nonsense at all. It’s all lies. The first time I used it, I can smell a strong artificial scent. If you are sensitive to fragrance, it’s a nightmare. Besides that, it’s no difference to water, nothing special. It didn’t hydrate my skin at all, not to mention soothing and purifying. Will I recommend it to my friends? Absolutely no! CLARINS Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate Price: $89 for 30ml CLARINS - Double Serum Complete Age Control Concentrate Main ingredients: Turmeric, Oat Sugars, Orthosiphon Extract, Callicarpa Extract: Revives radiance. It is another trendy serum on the Internet. According to these ingredients, it should be anti-aging, visibly firm and lift, helps improve the skin texture and revives radiance. But it did nothing. It’s an oil type serum with an application that can control the amount of usage which is the only advantage. Even it’s oil type. I was hoping that it can be absorbed easily. By contrast, it can not be absorbed. I fell my face was soaked into the oil. Besides that, it leads to breakouts. It clogged my pores, which made my pores unable to breathe. I didn’t use much of it, one to two drops every time. I just cannot like it. Go to rubbish! It’s expensive! I can find many other useful serums which are much cheaper. I would not recommend it to anyone. It’s totally overhyped.

Mix them!you will get surprise skin!
Most of time, using Sisley products’ customers will use all series of Sisley products, same like La mer. For example, someone use Sisley ecological compound will use Sisley anti-aging hydration booster or some other Sisley serum, or someone use La mer concentrate will use La moisturizing cream in the same time. But in the recent times I have seen some bloggers recommended the combination of Sisley ecological compound with La Mer concentrate. They think this way can make the skin better maintain the stability of water and oil. So I started to use these two brands together, and found that the effect was pretty good. Both of them are top products of their own brands. I remember one time I went out for a tour, sleeping at 3 or 4 a.m. every day, and got up at 7 a.m., but my skin is still in good condition! I think the credit is due to this combination！ First of all, let's talk about Sisley ecological compound. Since using this, I seldom used other lotion. Its smell is very light and good. its texture is not very thick and can be absorbed well. I did not find any stimulation reaction. it is very moisturizing, and sensitive skins can also use. Secondly, La Mer the concentrate, a translucent and thick texture, has a very good effect on inhibiting acne and pockmarks. Although it is mainly used to repair skin, most of time it can only be used as moisturizing essence. The combination of the two will not cause any skin acne and redness. I like this combination!! Mixing can keep my skin always in a good condition! LA MER - LA MER The Concentrate sisley - Ecological Compound
Perfect Match - antioxidant boost!
We all know that slapping on some vitamin C in the morning before heading out. Usually i go with a serum. This Clinique even better clinical serum is an extraordinary way to help protect your skin from free radical damage. It is been proved that one of the main reasons we age is because unstable electrons in molecules (called free radicals) attack healthy cells and change their composition, which causes them to no longer function the way normal, younger cells do.That's why using a vitamin C serum is vital that helps us to protect from UV light by sacrificing themselves during this process. CLINIQUE - Even Better Clinical Radical Dark Spot Corrector + Interrupter Some may not know that vitamin C does a better job at protecting the skin from sun damage when combined with Vitamin E. When you adding vitamin E to your skincare routine into the mix, it can vastly improve the effect.when vitamin E and vitamin C come together, the antioxidant effects of both are actually boosted Vitamin E is no slouch as a skin care ingredient itself, but when paired with vitamin C, the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University states that the combination is more “effective in preventing photodamage than either vitamin alone.” Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream for Night I like to pair with Vitamin C serum with this night cream from Neutrogena where you can find almost in every drugstores even Walmart. The formula is quite simple. The texture of this retinol cream is thick and silky in texture, and it feels really nice on the skin. My skin is extremely sensitive and tends to breakout from most anti-aging products on the market. This product has not only worked for clearing my skin up but it changed the texture of my skin for the better. These two combination is by far my fav.—it's kind of like a double shot of espresso but for your face. Together, vitamins E and C are an antiaging powerhouse, protecting your skin from the damage caused by UV rays while promoting healthy skin-cell growth.

💙The Game Changer💙 Perfect Match for Oily Skin!!
Those with oily skin are always after skin with a matte-finished effect. Aesop's Aesop - Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream and Aesop - Lightweight Facial Hydrating Serum can achieve that effect instantly. I have combination-oily skin and Aesop is the best brand that I've ever used since I started using skincare products. Aesop's most popular product is its Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Serum, but it's not very suitable for oily skin. The beauty assistant recommended me their Aesop - Lightweight Facial Hydrating Serum. It has a gluey texture and runny consistency. If you directly apply the serum in your face, you will find it terribley sticky! The correct way of using it is to emulsify it between your palms then press it onto your skin. It's absorbed quickly and is not greasy. It offers amazing oil control that lasts the whole day. I don't like the smell personally, but I don't think its a big problem as it works well on oily skin. Aesop - Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream feels refreshing on the skin and it's not sticky, yet it is super hydrating. My skin flakes easily in winter when it's not well hydrated and it's especially obvious after applying foundation. After using this facial cream, my skin no longer flakes or peels. Pairing and using them together offers great a moisturizing effect and oil control, making this combo extremely suitable for oily skin. Aesop's products are plant-based, so keep an eye on the expiration date.

Best & Worst⁉⁉ My Personal Ranking of 4 Hyped B5 Products...
Vitamin B5 helps keep skin soft, smooth and healthy. It has an anti-inflammatory effect that can help stimulate your skin's healing processes. I have combo skin and I've tried 4 hyped B5 products. Here is my personal ranking of them: 1⃣LA ROCHE-POSAY Baume B5 2⃣SKINCEUTICALS Hydrating B5 Gel 3⃣The Ordinary B5 4⃣LA ROCHE-POSAY Serum B5 The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 $6.8 for 30ml This is an amazing product at an inciting price tag. You really can't go wrong with $6.00 for this goodness. It has a sticky consistency with no scent. When you rub it into your skin, it suds up a bit. After a moment it seeps into the skin. Another thing to note is that it peeled under my sunscreen and makeup products, so I just used it in the evening. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Hyalu B5 Pure Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum $30 for 30ml The one major flaw in this product is the fragrance. It is a heavily perfumed scent that takes a long time to disappear and its not suitable for sensitive skin. The texture is sticky but it didn't ball up on my face. It seemed to absorb slowly, which means I had to wait along time to apply moisturizer over top. It may have worked to leave my skin hydrated but I will not repurchase it for the texture and fragrance. SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel $83 for 30ml The price is kinda steep but you get what you pay for! The texture is silky and a little goes a long way. And it didn't ball up at all. It keeps the skin hydrated and plump. Although the product is pricey, it lasts for a long time and does the job, thus it is worth it. LA ROCHE-POSAY - Cicaplast Baume B5 for Dry Skin Irritations $15 for 40ml This is my holy grail irritated skin rescue product! When I suffered from sensitive skin conditions or went too hard on the retinol, it works well to speed up the skin recovery process and moisturize dry patches. My skin even gets sting when I apply La mer, but this balum helps so much to reduce the irritation and soothe the healing skin. I HIGHLY recommend for any irritated skin that needs quick healing. If you have any questions or suggestions hmu 😘💖‼️

Mini Products, Maximum Hydrating Effects
Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Hydrating Moisturizer I got this mini travel sized moisturizer as a free gift along with a purchase. I’ve been using this for 2 days now and I am seriously considering getting the regular tub. This product is packed with hyaluronic acid, and we all know that hyaluronic acid is responsible for making our skin look supple and youthful hence, anything that has HA in it is super hydrating and will really help our skin maintain its youthful glow. Within the short time that I’ve been using this product, I feel that it’s extremely moisturizing on my face. My face feels so plump and bouncy right after applying it. The moisture lives on even after a few hours after application. I use it in tandem with my normal routine of cleanse, tone, serums, and my dry combination skin has since been loving it. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Potent-C Vitamin C Power Serum This is another travel sized mini product that I have been loving lately. Vitamin C is known to counteract hyperpigmentation and uneven skin texture so anything with it is super helpful if you have the same issues like me such as sun spots. This serum feels so good. The only downside is its smell but it’s not overpowering so it doesn’t really bother me too much. I can look past a product’s smell if it delivers me great results. Like the first product, it has only been 2 days since the first time I’ve used it but it does make my face glow and appear brighter than it was. I think vitamin C has an instant effect, and with that, I’m very thankful cause I like my skincare products to deliver me quick results. If you’re looking for a brightening serum to combat your hyperpigmentation, try this.
