New and fav mask! 🌸💗
I am someone who likes budget products. This mask right here is perfect! It has marshmallows in it which has brightening properties in it ✨ It leaves my face feeling smooth and you can see a difference. For some, it may take a few uses to see results, but I could see some instantly! It also leaves my skin feeling hydrated and smooth! The texture is also something that stands out. It is so easy to apply, and it looks and feels like a marshmallow! I would eat it if I could lol 😌✨ This is my new favorites mask, I just love how it leaves my skin feeling. I would recommend it to anyone! 🌸⭐️bliss - Mighty Marshmallow Mask

These duos smell amazing, do wonders for your hair, and are just the cutest! I got both of these for $14 at Target. I would def recommend these to anyone! It gives your hair volume, makes it smell great, and it helped mine grow. My hair grew a inch in one month because of these!

Best scrub for removing blackheads!
This blackhead scrub is one of my favorite exfoliants. Even if you don’t have blackheads, this still clears out your pokes and gently exfoliates.. Leaving your skin smooth and beautiful! I would recommend this to people who are suffering from blackheads, or have a oily face. This scrub also helps with removing oil that your skin doesn’t need, but doesn’t strip any of your natural oils! :) Have a great day and stay safe 💗💗

The best products for dry/sensitive skin! :)
These two products are honestly a life saver. They are gentle but they work so well! CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin This lotion is lightweight, and it feels so good on your face! It doesn’t have a smell to it, and the texture is so rich! I would rate this a 4/5 only because if your skin is super dry it will take a lot of uses to see results CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser This is my favorite facial cleanser! It doesn’t have any harsh chemicals in it, it doesn’t strip your face, it just leaves your face feeling clean and soothed! I would rate this a 5/5! :) I would recommend these products to probably anyone. It doesn’t make my face oily, so even people with oily/combo skin (like myself) can use it! And it’s really gentle, so those with sensitive skin won’t have a reaction to it!

Two more TONYMOLY products!
I got more TonyMoly products and I’m so happy I did! Both of these work great for my skin and they’re def a new favorite! TONYMOLY - Panda's Dream Rose Oil Moisture Stick I would rate this 5 stars because it moisturizes and it smells wonderful! I would recommend this to all skin types. It doesn’t make my face oily either! TONYMOLY - Tako Pore Blackhead Scrub Stick I would rate this 4 stars because one, it helps remove my blackheads really well, but the exfoliant could be a little harsh. I have slight sensitive skin, so I wasn’t bothered by this much. But for those with super sensitive skin, this isn’t for you! It has little exfoliating beads in it and they might be too harsh for your skin! I hope you all had an amazing Mother’s Day and are staying safe! Xoxo :)

Korean skin care haul! 💗
TONYMOLY - I'm Lavender Lullaby Sleeping Mask Let me start by saying... I LOVE THIS SLEEPING MASK! It always soothes my skin and moisturizes it. The lavender sent also helps me fall asleep. It doesn’t have any harsh ingredients in it since you have to leave it on for a long period of time. Most overnight masks turn tacky and get all over my pillows, but this stays as a small layer on my skin that almost evaporates into it. I love it! I would recommend this to anyone who has dry or normal skin. (My combo skin falls a little bit on the dry side) I think that it’s so underrated, especially for something that works so well! Stay safe! Xoxo

hydrating toner 🥚
I typically stay away from using anything with fragrance on my face especially if its a toner, but I decided to go ahead and try this since the ulta app listed it as the last ingredient. It’s a little further up on the actual bottle 😕. The scent was overwhelming at first but it wasn’t as noticeable as I kept using it. I like layering my products, so I only use a small amount. Pros: - light consistency -hydrating - layers okay with my essence Cons: - it has fragrance -- it irritated the more sensitive parts of my face (when used w a foaming cleanser) - if you’re sensitive to smells, this might be a no for you Niacinimide is pretty high on the list of ingredients so I’m careful not to use 100% vitamin c with this due to the sensitizing effect it has on my face, personally. I think this would be great for dry skin or normal skin. I’m combination and it works okay for me, but very oily skin may need something more mattifying. Like most of my products, I got this on sale. I won’t be repurchasing it, because it didn’t blow me away with the hydration and it irritated my skin. Aside from not overloading my skin, increasing the hydration that my products give me without overusing them has really helped with my overall skin texture, brightness, and hyperpigmentation :) I give it a 3

Grossly Satisfying: A Copper Dry Brush
The Now - Copper Dry Brush Do you have dry skin on your body? Do you like go self tan? I’m telling you this brush is a GOD-SEND! It’s a copper dry brush from The Now and really don’t have say much else, right? The video speaks for itself. I use this probably once a week to remove dead, dry skin. And yes, I moisturize both morning and evening! My body has been more dry since we started isolation. Dry brushing is a great treatment for getting your blood circulation going and for lymphatic drainage. It’s clearly a great exfoliator as well! I use it to remove remnants of self tanner or to prep before self tanning as well! This is the cheapest option I’ve found. This brush can also be referred to as an Energy Brush or an Ionic Dry Brush.

Clean your beauty blender in 1 minute￼
I saw this Beauty hack on Tik Tok and thought I would give it a try and see if it actually worked. It’s suppose to be a one minute hack to clean your your beauty blender. Materials Needed: Microwave Microwavable glass Dirty Beauty blender Warm water It was such a simple process and these were the steps I did Steps: 1). Wet your sponge 2). get a glass fill with warm water add a few drops of liquid dishwashing soap mix up with finger. 3). drop the sponge in the water, make sure it’s submerged 4). microwave it for one minute, let the glass cool down before removing from microwave. 5). After the water has cooled, Squeeze out the beauty blender and run it under warm water while squeezing. Repeat depending how dirty your blender is. 6) let it dry overnight This was a quick and easy beauty hack and it worked great on my blender as you can tell from the picture. I recommend you try it out and let me know how it work for you. if your blender is really dirty you might need to repeat steps My blender wasn’t that dirty so it only took one time for me to clean. REAL TECHNIQUES - Miracle Complexion Sponge This is a good dupe for the Beauty blender sponge. I use a brush for my foundation but use this to blend around my jaw line & for my concealer. I have repurchase this sponge several times. I highly recommend this product check it out it out at ulta for $9.99

Let’s talk BUTTNE 🍑 Drop Comments 👇
Okay everyone, this is a topic that a lot of people don’t want to discuss but that many people deal with. It is embarrassing, can be painful and itchy, and can really bring down your self-esteem. I’m talking about BUTTNE! (butt acne). I want to know what products are the BEST for this and what your routine is to keep the pesky little zits away from your derrière! I’m going to select products and test them myself for a couple of weeks each and leave my honest review after. Once I find a product that works I will share 🥰 Let’s talk in the comments!! 👇 👇 👇
CHANGE YOUR DIET
One thing not talked about is your diet — Sometimes if you have really bad hormonal, stress, inflammatory acne you may want to switch your diet. I myself needed to cut out a lot of foods to help my skin and found alternative foods. CUT OUT: DAIRY (studies have shown that dairy can affect your hormonal balance and thus your skin) - Alternative: Water, almond milk, lactose-free cheese, gelato PROCESSED SUGARS (eating bad sugars is just never a good thing such as juices, pop, candy etc.. it affects your skin and overall health) - Alternative: For someone who craves sugar, I opt for dark chocolate, natural gelato, organic oatmeal balls, vegan treats, or fruits ALCOHOL (if you look at certain actresses who don’t drink, their skin has remain youthful and clear. Alcohol can cause aging and the sugars cause skin problems) -Alternative: having a couple drinks here and there is totally fine, just avoid sugary/wheat drinks. I go for gin mixed drinks or tequila shots p.s taking shots before going out helps with bloating and not having to pee so often GLUTEN (some have intolerances to gluten and i found that eating less helped with my acne. Having too much gluten isn’t always good for your diet anyways) -Alternative: gluten free bread, pasta, pizza or just reduce the intake by eating rice or potatoes, EAT MORE: GREENS: Eating veggies will give your largest organ the best nutrients it needs. The darker it is the better such as spinach, broccoli, zucchini, avocados(my fav), chard, cucumber etc any veggie really is good for you! OMEGAS: These essential fatty foods are the best way to get the calorie intake you need but in a healthier way such as avocado, salmon, tuna, eggs, nuts, tofu etc GLUTEN- FREE: avoiding gluten is great so adding alternatives can benefit your diet such as granola, oats, lentils, couscous, rice, quinoa, beans, chick peas etc WATER: water should be your main source of hydration. I drink a minimum of 1 litre a day but occasionally I’ll have pure apple juice or coconut water. Disclaimer: I am not a nutritionist but with my personal experiences avoiding, lowering, and changing my intake of these foods/drinks helped fight off my acne, improved my energy, and overall health Hope this helps :)
A comparison between probably most famous affordable cleansers by cerave I will touch on 4 features: ingredients, texture, performance & user experience. Promise to do my best to keep it short and sweet 🤭 Note: Foaming Cleanser - FC Hydrating Cleanser - HC ✍️Ingredients: As you already know, cerave uses basic ingredients they focus on protecting and/or restoring the skin barrier. FC - 3 types of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide (stellar ingredients), is soap & fragrance free. HC - of course ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and MultiVesicular Emulsion Technology (MVE), a Cerave patent Technology designed to release moisturising ingredients to the skin for 24hs (I did not feel that on this particular product). 🧖🏻♀️ Texture: FC - gel formula that turns into a foam when massaged into the skin, thick lather, ‘sticks’ to the skin; HC - creamy/watery texture, very lightweight, thin when applied onto the skin. I would say in comparison to FC this cleanser glides nicely, almost disappears when massaged onto the face. 🌟Performance: FC - designed for normal to oily skin, this cleanser is brilliant at removing minimal makeup, oiliness, spf & impurities. Forms a very thick lather when in contact with skin & water, therefore performance-wise, very effective. HC - In order to achieve same results as FC, I would need a few more pumps. That being said, it does not emulsifies as well. Bare in mind this is my personal experience. Designed for normal to dry skin. 💚Experience: FC - in terms of effectiveness and results, I would prefer FC over HC, however despite having Niacinamide (great at calming & healing) & hyaluronic acid (humectant), it does feel slightly drying, tight after rinsing and drying the skin with a towel. HC - not as effective as FC, however, it does not dry the skin at all. Brilliant for those days when skin is over-sensitised or for dry to very dry skin. Final thoughts: I really like both & I would recommend both cleansers. However, I think I would appreciate the FC more in summer, whereas HC is a good all year rounder to have in your stash. If I had to choose one, it would be the HC. Both products cost £9.00 & have 236ml📍
