Summer Fridays CC me serum
This is a vitamin C serum for all skin type. It targets uneven texture, dark spots and fine lines while brightening and hydrating your skin. The texture is a little bit thicker than a serum and non sticky. When I bought I used it right away everyday and my skin didn’t like it at all. I thought that something in the ingredients made me break out (some dry patches) but it was also the first time I was incorporating vitamin c to my routine so I thought “let the break out clear and try again”, which I did. After the break out cleared I re-incorporated the CC me Serum but this time every other day and it was perfect , now I have been using it everyday (every morning) for a month. I’ve seen my skin texture improve and brighten , I didn’t really have dark spot so I can’t speak for that. But it really did work well for me. And the fact that the vitamin c is mix with squalane makes it great for my dry skin. I really enjoy using it and glad I splurge -> because I found the product a little pricey ($64 for 1oz) but it was worth it in my opinion. I’ll most likely repurchase and recommend it also still making 4 stars instead of 5 because of the price. Hope it’ll be helpful for you guys

Need extra hydration : this is your guy !
Skinfix BARRIER+ Lipid-boost Jelly serum. It’s a serum, with a jelly like texture, for all skin type. It particularly helps improve dryness and dehydrated skin. This serum quickly became a favorite in my routine (AM and PM). It really helps my dry skin, especially during the colder month were my skin was extra dry and sensitive. I love the texture, that is not as liquid-y as a traditional serum but more like a lightweight moisturizer. I use it after my toner let it dry and then proceed with the rest of my routine. I can tell that my skin feel more hydrated and plump since using it. (Almost two months of use, but the hydration was instantly) It retails for $50 at sephora (and weirdly $67 on their website) for 1oz of product. It’s pricey but totally worth it if you are looking for extra hydration, plump, radiant skin. Highly recommend for dry skin. It’s a serum, with a jelly like texture, for all skin type.

BARRIER+ : Skinfix body cream
This is a Lipid-boost body cream for all skin type but made especially to target dry and irritated skin that even have a tendency to eczema. It says that it helps restore the skin barrier for a hydrated skin. It is a thick body cream, doesn’t have a smell to me and I’m ok with that ! The main ingredients are “Shea butter, Moringa, sweet almond, grape and jojoba oils”, oat to helps soothe the irritations, but also aloe. This products is vegan, cruelty free AND pH balanced. What more can you ask ? I know pretty great hein. I absolutely LOVE that it comes in a HUGE cream pot (tubes have a tendency to hold lots of products that you don’t use at the end or struggle to use, with that one : NO PROBLEM!). I love the rich texture that make me feel like I’m really nourishing my skin- if that make sense. I’ve been using it for two weeks now and my skin feel so much hydrated than it was. I can feel it when I’m taking a shower it’s still so soft. I also used it on my son, who has eczema condition, and it really helped him. His eczema had cleared up since we are using it and his skin never felt more smooth - EVER ! The eczema hasn’t came back since using it either. It really amazed me. The only negative point that I would bring up is that the cream doesn’t sink right in. I have to give it few seconds to penetrate but I don’t really mind it. By the time I’m doing my all body it’s all absorbed and don’t feel greasy or sticky. It is a bit pricey ($60 for 10oz) but so worth if you ask me + you have a lot of product. I would repurchase it with my own money ! *sent by the brand but opinion is 100% my own !

Beach please !
Beach please luminous tinted balm by tower 28. This is a tinted balm that you can use as blush but also on your lips (and I’ve also seen girls using it on their eyelids but I haven’t personally tried that one). It has this yummy creamy texture that blend so easily but also is buildable if you want to go for a more “dramatic” look. I’ve been into cream blush lately and that one is so good, first of all this is the perfect shade for me (magic hour : a rosy nude) it looks like my cheeks color when blushing a little, which I love it looks so natural. I usually wear it without any other makeup on as my go to no makeup but better and it last all day for me + give me this subtle glow due to its creamy texture. Keen to try more of their product. I recommend that product that is only $20 ! Yes you can run grab yours, they also have two other shades that look very cute (golden hour : orangy and happy hour : coral pink).

Indie Lee Squalane face oil
First video be indulgent 😝 - this is a facial oil for all skin type. It helps against dryness , uneven skin tone and texture. - The ingredient is simple : olive derived squalane. And we love that ! - I would describe it as a lightweight oil. - I had this -mini- oil in the discovery kit that retails for 29$ at Sephora, it includes a 1oz brightening cleanser, 1oz coQ-10 toner and 0,34oz squalane oil. You can also purchase it separately for 34$ 30ml or 14$ 10mL. A little goes a long way I’ve had it since October and it lasted until December. I’ve used it almost everyday few drops in my moisturizer when I feel the need of an extra boost of hydration. But you can also use it by itself. I can tell that my skin was left well nourished , hydrate and I even notice that my skin looked plumper. I highly recommend that face oil , the ingredients are simple yet effective. It’s cruelty free , affordable compare to other oil that are 50 and more dollars. Definitely check this brand out, I also loved their toner. I will have review soon hopefully about it. Let me know if you like the videos to see more texture or if photos are best ? Bisous.
Kosas Creme Blush/Highlight Palettes
These Kosas blush and highlighter palettes are so versatile. For my light-medium skin tone these colours all work great for me! I currently have 3 of these creme palettes and they are all GORGEOUS. I first bought my first palette (Tropic Equinox) due to the Instagram hype: if you have seen these on Insta, you will know what I mean - everyone is raving about it. But the subsequent two purchases were because my experience with Tropic Equinox was so good (wearing the highlighter in my selfie here!) The texture is creamy, pigmented, and yet so easy to blend into the skin. I like to use my fingers to apply these and that seems to be the most popular method as well. The finish is natural and has a slight sheen so you always look glowy AF. I like pairing this with a lightweight foundation (I love Colourpop’s Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturiser) because these allow your natural radiance to shine through. I would definitely recommend these to all my friends! For 34 USD this might seem a little steep at first, but I can assure you it is 100% worth the money. I have not used another blush brand since getting these! Kosas - Color & Light: Crème Cream Blush & Highlighter Duo

Honest Beauty Creme Cheek Blush = 💞
This is one of my favorite blushes because of how natural and dewy it looks. For me, the shade Rose Pink is the perfect natural flush for me and blends so well. I love that it’s a creme blush so I can use my fingers and build it how I want. The only thing I don’t like about this product is that you kind of have to warm it up to get it creamy and get the perfect about of movement from it - otherwise it’s nearly impossible to pick up or blend.

FENTY FACE - honest review
So as much as I love RiRi, I don’t love everything from her makeup line :( FENTY BEAUTY - Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation Sadly, this foundation did not work well for me because of the oxidation and shade range. This foundation ( matte only not hydrating version ) oxidizes about 3 shades darker than what it pumps out as right away. I am medium range towards tan range, but with an olive undertone. I wore shade 290 and it turned grey on me after oxidizing due to it being a neutral olive undertone. For such a big foundation range, the lack of olive undertones really bummed me out. BUT regardless of shades, the formula is beautiful and works great for oily skin. It’s REALLY matte and is a hard pass for my dry skin. PROS: Smooth matte finish + long lasting CONS: too matte for dry skin + oxidation Charlotte Tilbury - Lip Lustre Lip Gloss 5 stars for a reason. Absolutely gorgeous primer. Smooths our your skin and fills in pores. Looks incredible with most foundations. I love the smell. FENTY BEAUTY - Invisimatte Blotting Powder Great translucent powder! No flashback and great for on the go. My only complaint is I hit pan too quickly with it! FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer The hype is real! Not a lip gloss type of girl, but after gloss bomb I wear it. One of the most comfortable glosses I’ve ever worn. Hydrating and simply natural and beautiful.

PAULA’S CHOICE AZELAIC ACID BOOSTER REVIEW
If you deal with stubborn redness, I highly recommend trying the Paula’s Choice 10% Azelaic Acid Booster. The effects from this lightweight cream booster are pretty magical— it tackles redness, uneven skin tone, dark spots, skin texture, and just improves my overall complexion. In addition to the azelaic acid, this booster contains salicylic acid to add exfoliation. I love this most for its ability to smooth out my skin texture and even out my skin tone. However, it’s quite strong, and can be sensitizing to my skin. I definitely have to avoid my mouth and eye area when applying this or else my skin will become highly sensitized. I have to make sure to wash my hands after applying this or else it will transfer and cause sensitivity. When applying this, I mix it with another creamy serum, like Krave’s Great Barrier Relief or Make Prem’s Tamanu Calming Serum. I find that this balances out the intensity of the product. I rarely use this alone anymore after some bad experiences. I’ve heard this is great mixed into or applied after moisturizer as well! It’s $36 for 1oz, but I use only a little but so it lasts quite a while. Paula’s Choice also always has amazing sales so you can definitely get this for less. I think this is a staple product that would work for most people because it helps with so many skin issues: acne, texture, redness, hyperpigmentation. If your skin is super sensitive, definitely be careful, because it is strong. But you can make it work by balancing out the intensity! PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster

HYDRATING TONER FOR DRY SKIN 💦💦
The Nuria Hydrate Moisturizing Toner is an amazing toner for dry or sensitive skin. It’s a light, gentle, moisturizing toner. It helps hydrate and soften my skin, and is never irritating. It’s actually one I reach for when my skin is sensitized! It’s made with Mallow Root (a soothing antioxidant), Chamomile (ultra-calming & moisturizing), and Rose Oil (boots elasticity & skin texture). It’s not milky at all, it’s a water consistency that is very refreshing, especially straight out of my skincare fridge. I love Nuria’s products because they’re completely clean, made without parabens, sulfates, irritants, etc., and they’re all vegan, cruelty-free, safe, and most importantly EFFECTIVE. I seriously love all their products. The prices are great too! This 6.1oz bottle costs $24 and lasts forever. I’d recommend this to anyone, especially those with dry or sensitive skin. 5 out of 5 stars! Such a fan.
I love Youth to the People’s superfood approach to skincare— adding the powerful foods we eat for body nutrition into skincare to boost skin health. Their products are 100% vegan, natural, nontoxic, cruelty-free, sustainable & ethically-sourced. 🌿 — 🌱Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser ($36 for 8oz or $10 for 2oz): Probably my favorite cleanser of the year?? Or top 3 at the very least. Super gentle but rich in nutrients, this is an amazing non-drying cleanser that balances the skin’s pH levels. ⠀ 🌱Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist ($42 for 4oz): Definitely my favorite mist!! I like that this is essentially a powerful hydrating serum in a mist form. The mist is super fine though, so you have to spray quite a bit to feel adequately quenched. ⠀ 🌱Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask ($48 for 2oz): Such a rich & creamy sleeping mask that hydrates, plumps & brightens the skin overnight. I always wake up with supple, glowing skin after using this! ⠀ 🌱Superfood Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer ($48 for 2oz): A lightweight, whipped cream that is loaded with superfoods like kale, spinach & green tea. A solid, refreshing moisturizer great for dry or mature skin. I loved this during the summer for a lighter but still ultra-hydrating option, but tend to reach for richer products in the winter. ⠀ 🌱Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream ($58 for 2oz): I didn’t notice any improvements in my skin while using this so I rarely reach for it. However, the adaptogens like reishi, ashwagandha, rhodiola & holy basil provide benefits like protecting the skin from environmental stressors like UV rays & pollutants, which makes it difficult to see visible results. This may just be one of those that I have to trust is working! But I prefer their Superfood moisturizer for more instant results. ⠀ 🌱Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliating Power Toner ($38 for 4oz): This has 8% lactic acid & 3% glycolic acid to smooth & firm the skin. Full review on this to come; I’ve only tried it a few times & my skin reacted a bit.
