Oily Skin Glow Up ✨

avatar
Mallory
I know usually when you have oily skin the last thing you want to do is have a glowy complexion. Usually it’s matte everything. Mayttifying Toner. Matte primer. Matte foundation. But there are the occasional times I like a little bit of glow to my skincare. I believe there is a line between oily and glowing and you can achieve it with the right products. I, personally, have oily acne prone skin. When I want a little bit more of a glow I go with this routine: 1.) Cleanse - GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Cleansing Gel
Gel cleansers are amazing for oily skin! You’re going to get the deep cleanse you need without stripping your skin. I like the fact this one has vitamin C included which is going to help give your skin a boost to brighten a dull complexion. 2.) Treat - Murad - Vitamin C Glycolic Brightening Serum
As much as I like the cleanser including vitamin C you’re going to get the most benefits out of a leave on treatment. This treatment pairs vitamin C with glycolic acid to give you a brighter, healthier looking complexion. The glycolic acid (which is great for oily skin!) is a chemical exfoliator that buffs away the dull dead skin cells to enhance the delivery of the vitamin C. It also has a little bit of a shimmer to the product which gives you a beautiful lit from within glow. It absorbs easily and feels really lightweight so oily skin isn’t bogged down all day like it can with other “glowy” products. 3.) Moisturize - GLAMGLOW - Mega Illuminating Moisturizer in Nude Glow (travel size)
Now if I really want to have a glow I pull this out. You can really replace this with any gel moisturizer you have but this one does have a bit of nude shimmer in it that will help contribute to your glow up! It’s a very light weight gel consistency and a little goes a long way. 4.) Sunscreen - KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32
If you’re exfoliating or using vitamin C you HAVE to wear sunscreen. No ifs, ands, or buts. You have to. Those products, as beneficial as they are, make your skin a lot more photosensitive to the sun. 90% of aging comes from UVA/UVB rays so we need to help prevent this as much as possible. The Kinship sunscreen is a mineral sunscreen that is reef safe and designed for acne prone skin. This sunscreen has a little bit of a peach, glowy tint that rubs into the skin transparent but with a little bit of a glow. It highlights turmeric which soothes the skin (which you’ll need if you’re exfoliating) as well as strengthens and protects damaged skin. It also has kinbiome which will help strengthen your skin barrier. I received the Georgette Klinger as a gift the beginning of the month and I’ve been using it ever since. The Murad and Kinship I received in the 5th edition of the Trendmood box and they became immediate favorites. I’ve had a few Glamglow travel samples for quite a few years now.

mellglossYour hand is shinning under the sunlight! It'd better use vitamin C at night even with sunscreen.

Product Mentioned
Desert Island Products!
These are my desert island products!!! If I was stranded on a desert island and could only bring 4 things, these are what I would bring: DRUNK ELEPHANT - E-Rase Milki Micellar Water If I were stranded I would want this so I could still cleanse my face despite being without clean water 😂 Hanskin - Hyaluron Skin Essence I would bring this because it is so hydrating and if I were stuck in the sun all day I would definitely want to keep my skin hydrated! PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum I literally just cannot live without this product plus it has hyaluronic acid and peptides which will hydrate and help prevent aging KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 Lastly, you cannot be stranded on a desert island without sunscreen!!! And this is such an amazing sunscreen, it is hydrating, no white cast, but is a physical sunscreen!

Sunscreen Steal!
Okay yall, I got this at TJ Maxx for $16! Don’t worry, I checked the expiration date and all that good stuff. So, here is my honest review: BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Mineral SPF 45 I know biossance released a new SPF in place of this one that gets much better reviews. This, however, was not a bad find for $16. Slight white cast but not too bad and it was really hydrating! It’s definitely something I will keep with me in my gym bag for when I’m out and about but it won’t be my go to since I also just got the KINSHIP - Self Reflect Probiotic Moisturzing Sunscreen Zinc Oxide SPF 32 and it’s my favorite spf ever.

Vitamin C: the ultimate glow inducing ingredient
Vitamin C is one of my favorite powerhouse ingredients! This amazing antioxidant is just great to brighten, correct hyperpigmentation and get an even skin tone! 🍊 I personally am a big fan, and love to use vitamin C to get bright, luminous skin. It’s been so useful to me lately as I’ve been feeling stressed and picking at my skin and it’s so so good to correct darks spots and post-acne marks. These vitamin C products from Georgette Klinger (gifted) we’re just the perfect fit for me! The GEORGETTE KLINGER - Vitamin C Complex is a lovely serum formulated with Kakadu plum and hyaluronic acid (another ingredient I just love) to promote the absorption of vitamin C. It’s important to know the correct order to apply a vitamin C serum and it should always be after toner but before moisturizer, following the thinnest to thickets rule and you should always, always apply SPF after! Unless you’re applying it at night, in which case you’re good without SPF 😜 I first learned about vitamin C from my husband, and the statues my own research, it’s been one of my tried and true ingredients for years!

Brighter, More Even Skin in just 10 Days!
Before we start, pleaaaase pardon my quarantine brows/hair. **GIFTED: I’ve been trying Georgette Klinger’s new Vitamin Collection through Cherie for the past 10 days and have been loving the line so far. This was my first experience with GK and the first time that I’ve ever followed a routine from a brand, so I was excited to see how using products that were designed to go together and comprised of similar ingredients would affect my skin. As someone with sensitive acne-prone skin with a pinch of rosacea, I’m constantly chasing acne scars and dark spots trying to get rid of every last trace of my breakouts, so using a routine fortified with vitamin C has been really helpful is fighting discoloration/hyperpigmentation and redness. I’ve been using each product twice daily. On day 1, I had some hormonal pimples that were on their way out and my skin was super red from being in the sun. By day 5, the scarring began to decrease and I noticed that the bright redness had started to go down as well, making things look more even and now on day 10, everything is barely there and my complexion is noticeably more even and radiant. Dare I say, the vitamin C might be helping keep my breakouts at bay (fingers crossed!!) In addition to brightening my skin, I noticed that the products helped smooth my skin’s texture as well, which is always welcome. Overall, I'm really pleased with the way the Vitamin C collection has been treating my skin and am so happy to have been able to try it out!

My Vitamin C Holy Grail
I’ve been obsessed with my Murad - Vitamin C Glycolic Brightening Serum I’ve received this in my Trendmood Box months ago and I’m still using it! I already posted a review before. I’m here to share my final thoughts. ☀️This serum is made with Vita-C Complex, which enhances L-ascorbic acid stability and potency. It also includes glycolic acid to remove dulling surface cells and help vitamin C support skin more effectively. The dual chamber package gives you a concentrated, fresh dose of vitamin C and glycolic acid with every use. ☀️My experiences with this product has been good thus far. It helps fade my acne scars and lighten my freckles. My goal is to get rid of them. I know freckles is a trend but I HATE them! I don’t like the price ($104 CAD) but I understand the price and I will repurchase this thanks to @paybright at @sephoracanada . With PayBright it’s $26 bi weekly! Now that isn’t bad at all! ☀️If you want a good Vitamin C serum this one will sparkle and please you. This will be a repurchase for me once I finish mine. Question of the day- what is your favourite serum? Keep Smiling and Stay Positive 🍁

☀️brighten UP w/Vita-C 🌞 #cheriepartner
☀️ the product Murad - Vitamin C Glycolic Brightening Serum $80 for 1oz/30 mL a very easily absorbed and POTENT serum (a lil stingy) that brightens skin when used once daily. make sure to use this or any vitamin C or AHA serum with SPF. 🌞 rating 4/5: super effective with awesome ingredients but that hefty hefty price 😭 i wish i could afford the bigger version but i would use it up too fast ☀️ ingredients - Vita-C complex: vitamin C in a stable and effective form to reduce pigmentation, increase skin cell turnover and brighten up - Glycolic acid: a high penetration alpha hydroxy acid that allows vitamin c to enter the skin - phyto-luminescent extract: sounds very science, murad says its like putting light into your skin

Teca 1% Barrier Cream
By Wishtrend-Teca 1% Barrier Cream
𝐅𝐑𝐄 is specializing in skin
𝐅𝐑𝐄 is specializing in skincare for active (sweating) skin. FRÉ Skincare is based on a very powerful and unique Argania Active Complex, made of organic Argan oil, Argan stem cells and Argan leaf water and has been proven to be extremely efficient on acne-prone skins, while remaining mostly natural and gentle on the skin. I23Fre set, which includes: ▪️ Step 1: 𝐏𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐟𝐲 𝐌𝐞 is a hydrating facial cleanser. This is non-foaming cream cleanser with small beads, that cleanses well and leaves skin soft with no oily residue. Actually I cannot understand the purpose of beads, may be light massage, as they are so soft and there are not so many of them for additional cleansing (scrub) purpose. ▪️ Step 2: 𝐑𝐞𝐯𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐌𝐞 is a deep replenishing serum. Hydrating serum with signature Argania complex plus hydrating and nourishing actives. Super moisturizing, nourishing, lightweight, and gentle, this serum has texture of light cream and could replace both serum and moisturizer. ▪️ Step 3: 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭 𝐌𝐞 is an ultra-light moisturizer with SPF30. A hypoallergenic formula that is non-comedogenic and ophthalmologist tested, so it won't clog pores or sting eyes. This sunscreen protects skin from UVA, UVB and IRA rays and pollution damage. It quickly absorbs with semi-matte finish. It doesn’t prevent from sweating, but keep skin less shiny/oily a bit longer. Last, but not least, my husband like all these products too and use them almost daily (serum as an after-shave treatment), and moisturizer as go-to sunscreen, so girls, I am sure your couples will borrow these products too.

Out with the old, in with the New
Out with the old, in with the New
Hey guys, so I know I posted my old skin care routine when I first started and I initially loved how it made my skin feel, but when I kept continuing using the products, I noticed they were not really giving me the results I wanted so I began to do some more research and I found the Caudalie products. I just started using them on May 27th. Caudalie is known for its clean and natural ingredients and I have very sensitive skin so I decided to give it a try. My main skin concerns is dark spots, uneven skin tone, and a few acne here and there. When I first started the routine, my skin began PURGING! I started getting a few more bumps than what I usually get on my face and I began to panic, but I decided to keep using the products, switched up my routine, and got rid of some of the old products I was using in my routine. Now my skin is starting to adjust which I am happy about. The bumps are going away and my dark spots are actually starting to fade away. It’s really true when they say some people’s skin do better when you use a more simple routine and I think that what my skin needed :). I will share my skin care routine in my next post.

Here’s my perfect combo for glowy af skin! 🤩 I have oily/combo skin but it’s dull due to bumps and texture. I love using the Krave - Great Barrier Relief to restore my skin barrier and it plumps up the skin giving it a gorgeous natural glow, that stays with you. The CAUDALIE - CAUDALIE Beauty Elixir is a great last step in a routine to lock in moisture and add some good oils to keep your skin fresh and hydrated!

Toner, Serum and Mask for Combo/dry Skin
First of all, my skin type is combo/dry, and there are the face toner, serum and mask that I want to recommend to you if you have the same skin type.  Dr. Hauschka - Facial Toner This Facial Toner is more suitable for dry and sensitive skin. It's very mild and I like how it feels on my face . I love its spray nozzle which creates a fine and delicate mist. Overall, it's very suitable for soothing acne-prone skin. Kiehl's - Midnight Recovery Concentrate The price is not cheap, but it's a great product and you only use a little of it every time. This is why I think it's worth its price. Its main function is skin repair. When I wake up the next morning after using it the previous night, my skin feels great and glowy! I think it does a decent job in terms of maintaining skin balance, moisturizing and lightening acne scars. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask I will use it for these two purposes: To hydrate my skin before makeup and for repair after sunlight exposure. I sometimes use this mask to adjust my skin condition before applying makeup. I will use this mask to calm my skin after sun damage. It repairs my skin very well.

Products for dry skin!
🏝My skin type/concerns- I have very dry skin in the winter and a normal skin type during the summer! Occasionally I will get bad acne throughout the year, I also have bad redness and hyperpigmentation! 🏝this review is for products I have tried to resolve dry skin! ✅worked ❌didn’t work 🏝Product list: ✅drunk elephant b hydra- I discovered this product last May when I received the drunk elephant littles set for my birthday! I have been using this for almost a year now! I never use this serum alone! I pick out my regular serum or oil that I’m using that day and I mix this in with anything I chose to use! I never use any serum or oil without mixing this in because it gives me an amazing extra boost of hydration! ✅Fresh night cream- I discovered this moisturizer from a friend recommending this to me after trying it and telling me how much it helped her dry skin! I have been using this for about a year and a half! I always use this at night because I know when I wake up this leaves my skin super moisturized and very soothed for when I start the day! This cream is so thick but still lightweight that it gives me the perfect hydration my skin needs, and it doesn’t just soak into your skin right away! ✅Laneige cream skin toner- I saw this all over social media when it came out, and when I saw some reviews for it I knew it would be perfect for my skin and I immediately bought it! I have been using this for about 6 months! I also only use this at night and whenever I use it I don’t use a serum or oil as well! I just use this because it gives my skin extra hydration that it would be to much to use all of the other products! I always use it right before applying moisturizer! The very thick consistency of this is super helpful before going to bed because I know I will wake up with super moisturized skin! ❌Glow recipe watermelon moisturizer- I discovered this moisturizer just from browsing the Sephora website when I came across this and I love anything watermelon, and it claimed to be a solution for dry skin! I have been using this for about 9 months! I only used this moisturizer in the morning because of its also brightening properties, the first time I used this I noticed it soaked into my skin super fast but so I started to wonder if this was right for me! I used it a few more times and I realized it wasn’t giving my skin the hydration it needed, my skin would start to have dry spots on my face during the day after I used this! I don’t recommend this product for people with really dry skin!GLOW RECIPE - Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum LANEIGE - Cream Skin Refiner fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer
