Skincare Targeting Dark Circles & Dryness
It's very common to experience fine lines and or dryness around your eyes, especially as you age. Hydration is key to healthy skin. Tip 1 drink a lot of water, your skin will thank you. Sometimes you think you have the start of wrinkles when its just signs of a dehydration. There is an inexpensive product you probably already have at home that will help with hydration, that is Vaseline. This product will help lock in moisture. I apply this right on top of my skin and under my eyes after using a serum and moisturizer. The Vaseline acts as a barrier over the skin and protects the skin because it is very occlusive. It will help lock in moisture and has healing properties. I will take a small amount on my finger and lightly dab under my eyes with my ring finger. Using your ring finger will allow for less pressure in such a sensitive area. Do not over do it, you don’t have to apply a lot. A pea sized amount tapped into the skin is just enough. Be sure to do this on cleansed, moisturized skin. You don't want to trap in dirt and oils underneath the product. To target dark circles, a Vitamin C serum is essential. This can be used all over your skin and under your eyes and has many benefits. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that will help reduce the appearance of dark circles. It helps build collagen and elastin in the skin. It will help plump skin, smooth fine lines at the corner of your eyes and brighten the under eyes as well. It is one of my staple skincare products. I take the syringe and drop two drops on my fingertips, warm it up between my fingers and press lightly under my eyes until it is absorbed. I apply every morning once a day before my moisturizer and spf. This is one of my favorite skincare steps. I see a huge difference in my skin and my under eyes from Vitamin C. This will help achieve brightness and make your glowy skin care goals come to life.

This is for my chicas with dry & sensitive skin
Recently, I have gotten a few questions about the products in my skin-care routine so I decided to go through my skin-care drawer (yes, an actual drawer) for products both past and present that I have used, loved, and re-bought. I am going to share my PM routine because I really like to take the time after a long day to just pamper myself. Cleanse 🧼 I am currently using Avène - XeraCalm A.D Lipid-Replenishing Cleansing Oil as my go-to cleanser. Now, if I am wearing makeup I will first use my cocokind - Oil to milk cleanser to remove all my makeup. If I am going all-natural I will just use 1/2 pump of the Avène wash my face, and then repeat. Others I have used & loved CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser skyn ICELAND - Glacial Face Wash this product saved my life at the height of my hormonal and cystic acne phase Tone 🤍 I actually don't use a toner because I feel like it strips my skin too much for my delicate skin. But if you have one that you like please let me know! Eye-Cream 👁 BAG BALM - Bag Balm Ointment I have talked about it in my makeup-less routine. But bag balm is essentially Vasoline, but it is said to also erase wrinkles so ill let you know in 10-15 yrs how this is working for me. Treatments 💫 This is when I use my serums so above I have my tree of life trio which I talked about in my brand review of the Tree of Life if you are curious. But at night I will use the retinol serum, but only 2-3 times a week because it can dry out the skin. TREE OF LIFE - Hyaluronic Acid Serum - 72% ORGANIC TREE OF LIFE - VITAMIN C SERUM TREE OF LIFE - Retinol Serum Then featured above is my most-expensive skin-care purchase ever. SKINCEUTICALS - Blemish + Age Defense I use this on any and all pimples that show up. Unforantly because my skin is so dry is basically dryes the pimple and all surrounded skin so it just peels off. Because of this, I dispense the spot-treatment onto a qq-tip then hold it directly to the pimple. I probably won’t buy it again because of the $$ but I use so little of it with each use it might last forever. But it works Grand Finale: Moisturize 💧 VANICREAM - Moisturizing Skin Cream is my best friend and that's all I have to say. *Mayan Magic*. I did a whole post just on this one moisturizer so check that out and check them out! I do and have used Cetaphil and CeraVae moisturizers and they do work! Miscellaneous 📦 skyn ICELAND - Nordic Skin Peel I use these maybe once every week to two weeks just to exfoliate. I do love the brand as a whole so I might be jaded. Aquaphor - Healing Ointment Skin Protectant I swear if you use this you’ll never have chapped lips again -hil <3
Brand Spotlight: Tree of Life
I am all about finding brands and products that are truly helpful, without breaking the bank. It can be so easy to fall for a product with promises, beautiful packaging and the claim that the price is worth it. I am lucky enough to have a best friend that’s in the beauty industry so that I have an insider scoop on products. About a year ago I was sitting in her salon chair when I realized that her skin was absolutely crystal clear and glowing. That’s when I was introduced to Tree of Life. Tree of life is a company that spends $0 on marketing in order to make products with high-end ingredients that’s budget friendly. Inside every order is a coupon for another full-sized product. Serum Combo 3-Pack for only $19.95 USD 🍊 Vitamin C TREE OF LIFE - VITAMIN C SERUM Vitamin C is the hot topic in the skincare world these days. This serum is used to help fine lines, dark spots, and wrinkles no matter your trying to prevent or treat them.

When to apply ☀️ vitamin c and hyaluronic acid 🌚 retinol *** important to NOT apply vitamin C and retinol at the same time due to pH levels in the skin being altered*** Other brand highlights: Cruelty free 🐰🤍 Most products are vegan 🌱 Made in the 🇺🇸 Natural ingredients 🌱
This vitamin C serum is pure magic!
Did you know OLEHENRIKSEN was one of the first brands to use vitamin C in their skincare products? PRODUCT: This Truth Serum is a potent vitamin C and collagen serum that helps brighten and firm the skin as it provides long lasting hydration. It is enriched with orange and green tea extracts and aloe juice to help nourish and soothe skin. It has a orange citrus scent to it and has gel-like texture. MY THOUGHTS: I’ve been looking for the perfect vitamin C serum for my skin and I finally found it! It’s been about 2 months since I’ve started using this serum and my skin looks so much brighter and firmer than before! I absolutely adore the mild scent of orange and the silky-like texture of the serum. It glides onto my skin and has truly made such a huge impact on my skins overall complexion. I highly recommend! What is your favourite vitamin C serum? SIDE NOTE: This product does not contain parabens, sulfates, or phthalates.
OLE HENRIKSEN-Truth Serum
GOOD MOLECULES - Super Peptide Serum is formulated to create a healthy, youthful glow by hydrating, smoothing, and brightening your complexion. Copper tripeptides stimulate the production of collagen and elastin to smooth, plump and firm the skin. Peptides help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I would recommend this for those in there 20s or 30s to help prevent the formation of wrinkles since the peptides help reduce the wrinkles caused by repeated facial expressions. The pH of this serum is 6.28. . I won this in a giveaway on Instagram and recently started incorporating it into my routine. While using this, I have noticed an improvement with my skin looking more plump and even! I’ve also noticed it does help with moisturizing my skin. It has no scent, which I really appreciate. It also quickly sinks into my skin so that I can move onto my moisturizer and be done. I love the dropper packaging of this, it’s so easy to either put into my hand/fingers or drop directly onto my skin. I definitely see myself purchasing this from the brand in the future due to them being cruelty free and their affordable prices for products that actually deliver results! Price: $12 for 1 oz/ 30 mL Rating: 4/5
GOOD MOLECULES-Super Peptide Serum
Empty product:( DEF replacing!!! Shiseido!!
SHISEIDO - Ultimune Power Infusing Serum Concentrate This product of mine is nearly empty and I will absolutely be purchasing again!! I got it with one of my rewards from Sephora and let me tell you, practically overnight my skin changed. ✨Product function: a pre-treatment to strengthen skin and defend against multiple signs of aging and daily damage ✨target concern: saggy wrinkle prone skin. Damaged skin from the sun or overall exposure to the climate you live in. ✨texture: liquid gel type. Isn’t sticky and absorbs into your skin within seconds. ✨my opinion: NEW FAVORITE brand! NEW FAVORITE product. I am 27 and have had melasma because of birth control. I’ve also done my share of tanning because it was cool when I was a teen. Now I am doing damage control and I am telling you this product is INSANE!! It firms and tightens my skin, while brightening, hydrating, and rejuvenating it as well. This product is going to be a staple in my skin care routine. It feels amazing and smells amazing too, which I can’t say for every product I have tried. I decided to try it because I heard a lot about the shiseido line just never wanted to spend 100 dollars if I didn’t end up liking the product. This is definitely something you will want to save up for if you don’t have 100 dollars to spend on one product, but it is SO so worth it. I would recommend this to anyone!! It not only does everything it claims but you just feel so clean and refreshed after using the product so it’s kind of a no brainer I LOVE SHISEIDO!! You can find it at Sephora!! It’s 100 dollars for the big one!
SHISEIDO-Ultimune Power Infusing Serum Concentrate
Drunk Elephant - C-Firma Day Serum & C-tango Multivitamin Eye Cream Firma: 4.5/5 Tango: 3/5 Firma Claims to brighten dark spots, firm and give luminosity - Brighten: Yes / Firm: ? / Luminosity: Yes! Texture - Serum-y, runny Scent - Bacon ——— This is a very good and potent vitamin c! I was skeptical using it at first as it was already oxidized when I got it but I really eased into this one... I didn’t enjoy using either because of the smell! First it smelled like sesame seeds and then plain bacon. Now I can however look past the smell and enjoy the wonderful results! This is the fastest acting vitamin c I have ever tried! I still love my Melano CC, and will forever. That one fades my most persistent scars but C-firma gives me a super healthy glow and radiant skin every time I wake up. It’s very effective in the way where you can actually see results immediately after a day or two. I was pleasantly surprised and will probably repurchase it after my mini. It really brightens my whole look & contains such great ingredients. I can’t see any firming so far but I still have young skin so I leave that for someone else to review. How I wish it didn’t oxidize this fast and smell like bacon. Also I don’t like how sticky it leaves the skin, that’s where it lost points. However, I really recommend this to everyone for results. Super impressed! ——— Tango Claims to brighten, firm and give radiance - Brighten: Yes / Firm: No / Radiance: No Texture - Creamy Scent - No smell ——— I have been messing up my sleeping cycle in recent months so I gave this one a go. I feel that it’s doing a good job in lightly brightening up the bags under my eyes but I feel no radiance or firming. Again the firming part I can’t speak much about but no radiance. I’m usually skeptical about eye creams, and I really do like the ingredient list of C-tango. It’s full of vitamins and peptides. Nevertheless, it’s only slightly brightening my under eyes so I can easily skip it in my routine. I believe it is a good eye cream since I find it hard finding one that does more than hydrate, it’s just not doing super much for me and I don’t love it. Purchased at drunkelephant - Littles Set $90
