Do not use if you have sensitive skin!!
Do not use if you have sensitive skin!!
Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Stubborn Acne Spot Gel After just two uses of this product my skin was not happy at all. I had red small pumps all around the area that I applied it, I have never had such a bad immediate reaction to a product and I do not consider my skin super sensitive. In the second picture it is difficult to see but it was way more red in person (above left eyebrow) you can see there are very small pumps and it is very red all around the area. After I applied my skin care, as I do every night, my skin began to sting just in the one spot I applied the product. Will not be repurchasing.

LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask So I’m going to start with the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask because it is so popular, but to be honest I don’t see the hype. The ingredients in this product have no real benefits to moisturizing your lips and pretty much acts as a thick lip gloss. I understand why people like this product because it does feel amazing to put on and feels super soft, but truly has no real benefits. BITE - Agave Lip Mask This mask is a great mask! But they have changed the formula from before, but this one I have was when the had the better formula. The new formula many people have claimed is too sticky and doesn’t moisturizer their lips at all, but this one for me is still on the next morning when I wake up and after washing my face my lips are left so soft and moisturized. And it tastes like brown sugar!:) fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 I loveeee this product, I don’t often wear a lot of makeup and don’t like bright colours on my lips. This tinted lip treatment feels like a chapstick and is so smooth on my lips, it adds the perfect amount of tint to my lips and has SPF so that’s a huge plus!! Great product and I will definitely be repurchasing.

dpHUE - Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Scrub As a Canadian who lives in a very cold climate throughout the winters I struggle with dry scalp. I received this sample with a Sephora package and decided to give it a try. I knew that the smell was going to be a little overwhelming because I’ve used apple cider vinegar in my products before which has a very distinct smell, but other than that this stub was AMAZINGGG! I have not a single piece of dry skin on my scalp anymore and rinsing this product out felt so nice and smooth and made my shampoo just glide through my hair and left my hair so clean and smooth. I will definitely be purchasing the full size to detox my scalp and help to keep my scalp happy and healthy!:)

The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Troubles with redness, irritation or texture? The Ordinary’s Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% has helped me (someone with very fair skin so any mark shows) almost illuminate all my redness. The third picture shows the difference of me using the serum for about 2 weeks, as you can see there’s a dramatic difference in my redness. I still do struggle with acne so this product won’t necessarily cure your acne but will help with inflammation and redness. I have gone through a whole bottle and just received my new one, a definite repurchase! Definitely recommend this product for anyone struggling with acne or just redness and texture. Very smooth to apply and leaves a nice glow to the skin.

YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser In the past I have tried harsh and stripping face cleansers to try and help reduce my acne but really would just inflame it more, so I started looking for gentle but effective cleansers. The Kale + Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Superfood Cleanser from Youth to the People is an amazing simple cleanser, after my first use my skin felt clean and purified instantly. I have been using this cleanser for about 4 months now and have gone through two travel size bottles and now decided to purchase the large size. Although this product has not helped to clear my acne, I will continue to repurchase this cleanser because it helps with the overall appearance, texture and health of my skin. Great gentle and purifying cleanser!!

My journey with acne!!
My journey with acne!!
Hello fellow skin care lovers:) So as you can see from my pictures a have had moderate or some may say severe acne, I have had acne since I was 13 (currently 19) and have battled with it all the way through high school and now college. I would like to share my journey with acne and how I have helped to calm down my cystic and hormonal acne throughout the years in hopes I may help someone else with their acne. I know the struggles of how acne can make everyone feel and it is truly a feeling I would never wish upon anyone else! I’m glad I can share my discovery’s and hopefully eventually a solution to my acne with everyone.

Lactic acid for sensitive skin
Lactic acid for sensitive skin
{What are the claims?} A gentle exfoliating serum designed to help skin appear brighter, more even, & minimizing acne while Providing hydration. Some info ; it’s 10% lactic acid, so it’s gentle even for sensitive skin. It also has low molecule hyaluronic acid so it hydrated and doesn’t dry the skin out. {Texture/Consistency?} It is a lightweight gel formula. {My thought?} I bought this 2 weeks ago from Sephora and I’ve been alternating this with my Honeymoon glow serum to help with my hormonal Breakouts and I really like it! I haven’t broken out or had any reactions, and it doesn’t tingle or burn from the acids. I feel my skin looks a bit more “smooth & shiny” the next day as if I’ve had a peel from a facial. I don’t think it helped me with my acne or acne scars but my pores look smaller! My skin looked brighter. It was gentle yet effective for my sensitive dry skin. {Is it worth price Vs. Size?} Yes! For 1 oz. it was only $12.99 and a little bit of product goes a long way! I would recommend it to anyone with uneven skin tone or texture ! THE inkey LIST - Lactic Acid Serum

{gifted}{emptied}{repurchased} THE inkey LIST - Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Serum Skin type: Combination, sensitive Product purpose: Hydration! Texture is a watery gel, product is scentless This product was gifted to me by the wonderful Inkey List team. I will sing their praises over and over - they make simple, effective skincare with no BS and I LOVE it. Not all of their products work for me, but this one is AMAZING. I have tried a lot of hyaluronic acid serums, ranging from drugstore brands to high-end ones. My favorite one prior to this one was PTR’s cloud serum, but alas, it started breaking me out (either the cream or the serum, but I ditched both). So imagine how surprised I was to find a product cheaper than ANYTHING I ever tried (it’s $6.50) that works perfectly well and does not break me out. I use this product right after my lighter serums, right before moisturizer. I use just a pea-sized amount for my face, spray it with a hydrating mist (HA absorbs water) and seal it in with an oil/moisturizer. Using this makes my skin feel extra hydrated and dewy, and if I’m feeling sensitive, I’ll use this with very little or no moisturizer. I highly recommend it. Best case - you’ve found your HG hydrator. Worst case - you lost $6.50, which is relatively little when it comes to experimenting with skincare products.

found this toner last year and it’s been a staple in my routine since the beginning. My skin can be sensitive towards toners but I haven’t had any issues with this product. No redness or itchiness. Over the last few months this toner has helped with my acne and scarring but also the overall texture of my skin and my pores are smaller. After using this product the next morning my skin is glowing and looks so smooth. I definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking to test out chemical exfoliants or looking for a new toner. It is on the pricer side but you will see results. Plus youth to the people have such incredible ethics and morals as a brand so your supporting a good clean brand! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner

The Ordinary AHA 30% + 2% BHA
The Ordinary AHA 30% + 2% BHA Peeling Solution I tend to reach for this when I need a glow boost, I have red spots/scars I want to fade and when I need a little extra product absorption. Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) work on the surface of the skin, gently dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells so that they can be easily removed, making way for a softer and smoother surface. They’re water-soluble, so they don’t penetrate deep below the surface of the skin, but are capable of reducing the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and dark spots. Beta hydroxy acid (BHA) more commonly known as salicylic acid is oil soluble so it can penetrate beneath the skin’s surface, cleaning out excess sebum from the pores and reducing oiliness.

My sister was able to get this
My sister was able to get this deciem peeling solution for me during her trip to NYC. A lot of people say it’s very similar to drunk elephant babyfacial, which I absolutely enjoy ! The colour is a little bit freaky and reminds me of vampires but I’m excited to try it 😂 . The Ordinary is one of the first brands that got me into skincare and I’ve had really good experiences with their products and currently still do. Their products are both effective and affordable so I highly recommend them!

goodbye acne!
goodbye acne!
long story short...I had acne. Looking back it wasn’t the worst thing ever, but at the time it made me feel like the ugliest human on planet earth. I would come home everyday and wash my face thinking that having makeup on for a shorter amount of time would help, and then I would cry. I would go sit in front of my heater so that my face got all red from the heat that it made it harder for me to see my pimples, I would make concoctions in my bathroom trying to find something that would help and stayed up all night researching skin products and cleansers to help...sound familiar? That was my life for about a year. Finally after spending so much money on random products I thought would help me I came across la rochey posay acne kit and picked it up at my local Walgreens. Let’s just say I saw INSTANT results. The first couple of weeks my face was dry beyond belief but with the help of a little moisturizer it was nothing I couldn’t handle. After a month I was only left with scars that faded over time and now..nothing. This is my personal story but I must say that anytime anyone asks me what I do to get such clear skin I send them to go get the acne kit and they almost always love it as much as me !LA ROCHE-POSAY - EFFACLAR ACNE TREATMENT SYSTEM
