On My Radar
I feel like my next Sephora order is gonna be a little more Pricey. Have used all but one of these products (and I'm getting a sample size of that one in the Sephora order I have coming). On my radar at the moment are CLARINS - Comfort Scrub. it's a toss up between this and an exfoliating powder on my next purchase. OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum This is one of my favorite Vitamin C serums, which I am putting head to head with another favorite. fresh - Lotus Anti- Aging Daily Moisturizer and fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer the day time I have tried and enjoyed it. it was effective and nice and light. the night, I have a sample coming so I'm excited to try it out

Best Products with Antioxidants
three ships - Radiance Grape Stem Cell + Squalene Day Cream a light cream texture with grape stem cell and squalane. The grape stem cell contains antioxidants called anthocyanins which absorbs UV radiation. The grape stem cell is also embryonic which means it can change into any cell needed- in this case, acting as a catalyst to new skin cell production. Gives a beautiful glow as well. If you shop on their site, you can save 20% with my code LEENA 20. fresh - Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer Another lightweight cream with Super Lotus as the antioxidant component. Super Lotus was formulated to targets the first signs of aging by supporting the skin’s barrier and protecting from free radicals. The white, large jar is a day cream, while the smaller blue jar is the night cream. Its richer in texture and smells like peaches. fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil a rich but non-sticky oil; vitamin c is a known potent antioxidant, and while acting as a gold standard for skin brightening and hyperpigmentation reduction, its also a great antioxidant to help with preventing signs of aging. KOSMETIC IMMUNITY - Luminous Skin-Defense Moisturizer This light gel-lotion contains mBeta glucan for hydration and powerful antioxidants derived from Lotus, Aloe and Bamboo, helps protect skin, defending against environmental aggressors. All of these make excellent day creams depending on your brand and/or texture preference. Would highly recommend trying any of these if you're looking for a good antioxidant product.
All my lovely moisturizers emptied in 2020
I will get another jar of TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream for next winter and fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer when everything else Going on is emptied. I can’t live without moisturizers, day or night.

Accutane = complete!
I have finished my round of accutane and wanted to share with everyone! The bottom photos is what I look like after applying my skincare that I have below. My skin definitely loves it! I still have some scarring to deal with but I am no longer having any breakouts! My skincare routine: spectro - Jel Cleanser I absolutely love this cleanser. I used this while on Accutane and I did not have any problems with it so this will be my go to cleanser now. dermalogica - Multi-Active Toner I’ve been using this for about a month and my skin is loving this! I spray this on damp skin to really hydrate my skin. OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Serum I use this because this is really the only vitamin c serum I have used. If anyone has a recommendation let me know! dermalogica - Stress Positive Eye Lift MaskI haven’t rated this because I just started using this. Cetaphil - Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion I’ve been using this for months and I actually love this! I also mix a few drops of The Ordinary - 100% Organic Cold Pressed Rose Hip Seed Oil with it to lock everything in. I finished off with Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I actually love this sunscreen!
Helps brighten my skin and add back bounce . My skin looks glowing and plump after each use. Must have
Glow Baby Glow
A glow is what we all crave and strive for am I right? We want our skin to be bouncy, health, bright and glowing and I have four products that help with that! I have dry dehydrated skin that constantly looks dull, so I crave that glow and always work towards it. First of all, a glow is achieved with exfoliation. There are many different ways but I believe gentle exfoliation and chemical exfoliation is the key. I discovered this cleanser by Kopari by chance and it’s literally called a glow cleanser! It works by gently eating away at dead skin on the surface with pineapple and papaya enzymes to reveal baby smooth, clear and new skin. This skin will always look it’s best. KOPARI - Tropical Glow Cleanser Next would be vitamin C. This powerful antioxidant ingredient is skin loving in that it will brighten the complexion, tighten and firm, and correct or lighten any dark spots or imperfections like acne scars. I have dark marks from post acne and religiously use my vitamin C from Skinceuticals in the morning to lighten these spots and even my skin tone. An even skin tone will always shine and glow more than skin with marks. This serum is literally the best of the best and the vitamin e and ferulic acid work to help stabilize and boost the effects of the powerhouse c. SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum Niacinamide is an easy way to achieve glow. It reduces pore size by helping control oil production which can make the pores look bigger and when you see large pores, you’re seeing dullness instead of healthy skin. So this is essential. Caudalie nailed it out of the park with this beautiful cream! CAUDALIE - Vinoperfect Brightening Moisturizer with Niacinamide Lastly I believe in oil cleansing! Clean skin is healthy skin! Oil cleansing helps break up makeup, sunscreen, gunky oil and other impurities from the day to reveal a nourished happy skin!! It can also help get rid of the excess oil that can block pores and cause pimples and clogs. Clear skin glows!! I love Kopari since it’s a lightweight silky oil that smells of vanilla and rinses away in a milky substance. KOPARI - Coconut Cleansing Oil I hope you try at least one of these ingredients to help achieve your glow ✨
SKINCEUTICALS-C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum
Seiso, pronounced SAY-soh, is inspired by the third of five principles in the Japanese 5S philosophy. The Seiso principle means “clean, tidy, and elegant.” The 5S philosophy emphasizes daily improvement, clearing away the unnecessary, and focusing on quality essentials. This line focus on reversing ceramide loss by replenishing skin with long-chain ceramides. Ceramide loss can lead to dryness, dullness, irritation, loss of elasticity and that “healthy glow.” The Seiso ceramide complex is 100% natural and sourced in Japan. It's extracted from koji by using the ancient art of soy-sauce production. Here's the run down: ☁️ Fuwafuwa Foaming Cleanser: this cleanser is already one of my favorites! Fuwafuwa means “soft and cloudlike” in Japanese and it describes this cleanser perfectly. It's gentle enough for everyday use. It's not like other foam cleansers I've used. It's puffy cloudlike texture leaves my skin feeling super clean, soft, and hydrated. ☁️ Pure Ceramide Concentrate: water-like drops that feature 100% natural, human-identical ceramide. It helps replenish the daily loss of ceramides, improves hydration, reduces inflammation, and promotes natural barrier repair. ☁️Ceramide Moisture Milk: this baby soaks beautifully into the skin and also works to prevent ceramide loss, improves hydration, reduce inflammation, and promotes skins natural berrier! ☁️Water Velvet Cream: like a tall glass of water for your skin, this daily moisturizer helps moisturize, plump, and seal in hydration! Helps protects skin from outside pollution, weather, dirt, and makeup! *Kindly gifted
The Perfect Hydrating Yet Light Serum For Summer!
Caudalie doesn’t just manufacture beautiful and effective clean beauty products, but it’s such a beautiful brand too. Founded in Bordeaux in France (hence the abundance of vino, or the French word for ‘wine’, in their product selections), Caudalie makes use of natural ingredients, and it’s the largest beauty company contributor for our planet.CAUDALIE - Vinosource SOS Deep Hydration Serum Their Vinosource line is fueled with grape, which is nature’s antioxidant that helps fight free radicals, fight the first signs of aging, and is a natural brightening agent. No wonder why this serum is known for its soothing, calming, and moisturizing power. It’s also packed with hyaluronic acid, a substance that our body produces, and is one of the most potent hydrating properties in skincare product ingredients. Caudalie Vinosource SOS Deep Hydration Serum credits its effective hydrating and skin nourishing formula to organic grape water, hyaluronic acid, and olive squalene. Grape water offers deep hydration and calming properties to our skin. It locks in moisture in the skin by holding water, quenching our skin’s thirst for rehydration. Organic grape water is also fantastic for calming skin irritation such as redness and rosacea. Hyaluronic acid is very important in treating the early signs of skin aging. Our skin needs HA in order to repair cells, keep our skin plump and youthful, and maintain its elasticity. Our body naturally produces this type of protein, but its production decreases over time as we age hence, our skin can benefit from outside resources to pump in HA such as skin care topical products or microneedling treatments. Olive squalene deeply moisturizes the skin without leaving an oily film on top. It’s perfect for boosting skin moisture but keeping greasiness at bay. My dry combination skin loves the HA in it as it serves as a moisturizing treat to my skin without making my face look like I slathered way too many layers of products on it. I used it with my usual cleanser, toner, eye cream, and sunscreen during daytime. At night, I like layering it with another cream moisturizer to really lock in the hydrating properties in my skin. It’s an ideal serum especially for summer cause it’s so nourishing but it goes light to the skin. So even if the sun is scorching hot outside, you won’t end up looking like you can fry an egg on your face. Super recommend this!

Skin Care Routine for Dry Skin
I have dry sensitive skin with a thin cuticle layer. I don't have any serious skin problems, so my main concern is only moisture retention. Today, I'm going to share with you my skin care routine.😊 This Clarins facial cleanserCLARINS - Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Shea Butter with shea butter is for dry sensitive skin. This is already my second tube. It smells good and leaves my skin squeaky clean and silky with no tightness at all. Those with sensitive skin can use it without irritation. This toning lotion is also from Clarins.CLARINS - Toning Lotion for Dry/Normal Skin It smells good and is developed specially for dry sensitive skin. It is also alcohol-free so even those with irritated skin can use it.😉 The Clarins Day Cream CLARINS - Extra–Firming Day Cream All Skin Types is better suited for dry skin and not recommended for combination-oily skin. I haven't had issues with skin peeling after using it and it also has brightening and anti-wrinkle effects. I use it interchangeably with Kiehl's Ultra Facial CreamKiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream. I really love Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream.Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel-Cream My skin felt so smooth after applying it and even my friends complimented me on my brighter skin. Many have said that they got milia after they used the Kiehl's avocado eye creamKiehl's - Creamy Eye Treatment With Avocado, but I didn't have that issue. The application is very important. Make sure that you don't wipe it on. Just dab it on after you warm it between your fingers and don't apply too much each time.👍

First things first, follow me to see more content like this✨😘. Pretty please🥺. So let’s talk about my night time routine. It’s pretty simple only because I’m really tired at the end of the, but I still want to make sure I wash my face 🥴. So I start off with the fenty skin cleans’r, then I go in with the fat water and finish it it off with the fresh lotus anti-aging night moisturizer. 💖- So I finally found how I could fit my fenty skin products into my routine. The total cleans’r in my opinion is a very basic cleanser. It’s suitable for all skin types and if you’re someone that is just starting out or a skincare beginner, this is really good😊. If you are sensitive, or just don’t like fragrance this product isn’t going to be for you🙅🏾♀️‼️. I personally like the fragrance, it smells really nice. My face feels soft and very hydrated after. I’m not sure if I’m going to buy this again yet, I’m conflicted. ($25)FENTY SKIN - Total Cleans'r Remove-It-All Cleanser 💖- I still don’t like the fat water. My face feels sticky after and I really do not like the consistency 🤢. Other than that I think it’s a fine product. I just don’t like or understand combining a serum and a toner, I think that should be two different products. But I’m pretty fine with it since I get lazy at the end of the day🤷🏾♀️. My face doesn’t feel extremely dry afterwards, just a little tight. Probably won’t buy again. ($28)FENTY SKIN - Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum 💖- last but not least is the fresh lotus moisturizer. This is a “light weight night cream powered by antioxidant-rich super lotus that helps skin recover overnight for a more youthful look by morning”. My face is extremely hydrated after I use this and my small wrinkles under my eyes have disappeared 😊😊. I would recommend this product if you are concerned about wrinkles or dullness. I have the mini version because I like to buy minis when I first try a product if it’s possible. I’ll most likely be buying this product again. The only think i don’t like is that it does have a strong scent but it goes away pretty fast. ($19 for mini and $48 for the full size)fresh - Lotus Anti-Aging Night Moisturizer Again, like I said I’m pretty lazy at night so my routine is very simple. Once i use the fat water up, I’m just going to use a regular toner. Feel free to comment and critique my routine 😘💖.
FENTY SKIN-Fat Water Pore-Refining Toner Serum
my skincare routine this morning. My day begins with me sneezing, with allergies flaring up I have little patience for a longer routine though I have the time. So here is today's simple routine: I cleansed with skindewi Raspberry Hydrating Cleansing Milk, this has a nice herbal scent that I like. Thick milky lotion that is easy to work with. I used 3 pumps of this and gently massaged my skin. This cleanses effectively and leaves my skin feeling soft and supple I use a Vitamin C serum preferably L-Ascorbic acid based right after cleansing in my morning routine. I have been using the Femmue Lumiere Vital C which contains 2% Ascorbyl Glucoside, a stable vitamin C derivative. This also contains other hydrating, soothing and brightening ingredients. This is viscous in texture and extremely hydrating I skipped the toner today and went with the two layers of tiam global Snail and Azulene Essence, I have been using it for the last three days and like it so far. It has a thick viscous consistency, no fragrance that I could detect but it is not slimy / sticky. For other kbeauty lovers - this does not feel the Cosrx snail mucin essence if that texture bothered you. Two layers of this is equivalent to 6 layers of a light weight toner I finished with this beautiful Starry night balm by thegranolagoat , I added a second photo to capture the beautiful color and texture. This minimal ingredient balm contains Watermelon seed oil, Shea Butter, Blue Tansy and Geranium. I love everything about this. The scent is calming and relaxing and Blue Tansy is supposed to help with allergies too. On contact, the balm transforms into oil. This is deeply moisturizing and nourishing, leaves my skin looking healthy.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
