Rose Mist- grace & stella
This product I originally began using just because it “felt good” when I would spray it. I ran out of my moisturizer and have yet went to get more so I decided to try this to see if it could moisturize my skin until the meantime! R E V I E W: I really like this product. It does moisturize your skin although I’d still use an actual moisturizer and not just this on your skin. It smells good and isn’t too overpowering in my opinion! grace & stella - rose water facial mist

Pimple Be Gone!
This works great for anytime you have a random pop up pimple! You take a cotton swab and dip it gently to the bottom of the bottle and apply it to the area. Leave on overnight and in the morning it’ll be gone! I’m a big fan of Mario Badescu but this has to be one of my favorites! I know what you’re thinking, $17 for that tiny bottle?? But I promise it is so worth it! And it lasts a long time so $17 in the long run won’t be as bad as you’re thinking. This product is not a product to be used daily as well just when a pimple pops up! So this really will last quite awhile! (:

Never Bummed w/ Bum Bum Cream😛
***disclaimer this is NOT for your face and will clog your pores if applied to face*** This smells soo soo good. This smells like a very rich cocoa butter (just to give an idea of the scent) I got mine from Sephora and used it to the last drop! I was literally scraping the bottom. It left my skin feeling silky soft and helped my stretch marks a lot! I got compliments everywhere I went about how good I smelled as well! Overall a 10/10 and I WILL be purchasing this smelly good fav again in the bigger container. SOL de Janeiro - Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

My morning toner (:
I use this once I am fresh out of the shower! Nice and gentle and just balances your skin without it being too aggressive. I love this! I’ve used it for years and it comes in different scents! THAYERS - Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Facial Toner
THAYERS-Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Facial Toner
I use this toner after I cleanser my face with African black soap with a cotton face pad. Minimizes my pores and my skin is GLOWING. It WILL burn and break you out for about the first week. Let your skin adjust!!!!!!! Anytime you use a new product your skin needs time to adjust. This works wonders, give it time. tarte - Knockout Tingle Treatment Toner

African Black Soap
Total game changer!! I use this as a cleanser before bed and it works like a charm. No acne! This isn’t the brand I use though I buy it off the online website of HouseOfBeauty!! (Don’t buy Shea moisture brand that is not real African soap!) PLANTS FOR SKIN - African Black Soap Face and Body Bar

Bye Bye Dark Circles
My dark circles game changed when I finally had my hands on the @olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye cream. At first I was indecisive about buying this product, being a part of this lovely community I decided to set up a poll to help me choose what cream I should prefer, hands down Olehenriksen won. All I regret right now is not making that decision earlier! Majority of the eye creams available in the market target fine lines, wrinkles, & hydration. While they work amazingly well too, but lack the ingredients to realm the dark under eye bags. Here comes in picture this eye cream, a perfect combination of all of these above mentioned plus under $40 - now i know why it is a cult favorite. Did you know it was inspired by the idea of "banana setting powders"?? The product contains ingredients like vitamin C which helps for firming & brightening, aloe,orange & green tea which helps immensely for dark circles, collagen which helps for hydration, reducing wrinkles. While other eye creams cause creasing below the under eyes when used under makeup this cream sits perfectly under makeup specially concealers. I have been obsessing over this eye cream from the moment I opened it, using it daily for day & night time routine. It instantly brightens my under eyes while I observe a reduction in my wrinkles. The consistency is not very thick and also has a banana color tint to it. Using the eye cream alone makes you feel like you have snapped a filter around your face and makes you confident. I am totally hooked to this cream and have recommended it to so many. Suddenly all my other eye creams I wanted to use for review have gone back into the drawer! I want to hold onto this so bad!! If you are eyeing for a good eye cram look no further - here is your pick! (no, it is not sponsored)!! Buy it now, thank me later!! 🌟

Thanks to Vinna, I finally got to try my first Glow Recipe product! KEY INGREDIENTS • Nutrient dense avocado • PHA for gentle exfoliation • Matcha to protect skin • Encapsulated retinol WHAT DOES RETINOL DO? It increases cell turnover and stimulates collagen production to improve the appearance of fine lines, texture, spots and hyperpigmentation, and to clean out clogged pores. HIGHLIGHTS • Creamy, rich texture • Gentle and non-irritating • First time retinol user friendly • Left skin feeling plump and hydrated I knew retinoids could help with fine lines and wrinkles, which aren’t really a concern of mine, so I never thought to try any— But I came to learn that it helps with hyperpigmentation and texture too. I was a little nervous using retinol for the first time, but the encapsulated form in this mask is a gentler and less irritating than traditional treatments. I used it as a wash-off because I move a lot in my sleep and was worried about leaving it on for too long. It felt wonderfully cooling and soothing, and I’m pleasantly surprised with how plump and hydrated my skin felt after I took it off. I’m going to use it once a week and then maybe eventually up my usage to see if I see any improvements with texture and spots too!
