My Husband Got This For Me 😍
My husband saw this in the CVS near our house. He knows how I feel about Cerave and knew that it wasn’t something that I had tried so he decided that he would purchase it for me! I am so grateful he thought of me while he was there. I have been concerned about moisture retention especially with the seasons changing yet again. I haven’t tried this because I already own their moisturizer and did not see a need to get it until I was done with the other one. I am glad he did because my skin definitely needed a change! I have used the CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Creamfor the first time tonight. It was applied after my serums and I was pleasantly surprised by this tiny jar of cream. Honey!!!! It is THICK like the backside of a Video Vixen in one of those Hip Hip music videos! It is the thickest cream I’ve applied in a long time. It is supposed to “improve the appearance of fatigued skin” and I know why now! It is supposed to renew as well as protect the skin barrier overnight and with how thick it is, nothing is getting lost through this especially not moisture. It also has my two favorite ingredients- niacinamide and hyaluronic acid -which clears pigmentation issues, manages acne, deals with wrinkles forming as well as keeping the skin well hydrated and smooth. I can not wait to write a full review on this! Already from my first initial application I can tell I’m going to like this product very much. Stay tuned for a full review later!

The gift of good skin!
For Christmas, I made my sister a new skincare routine! She has combo acne prone skin with some sensitivity and redness, she also complained of some dark circles around her eyes. She currently uses terrible products and is pretty lazy when it comes to skincare so she doesn’t even wash her face everyday! I tried to design something simple, affordable, and easy to keep up with (e.g. mostly drug store products) but also an effective starting point for her skin needs! How did I do?

Night cream 🌙💫
CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream ￼I was doing some online shopping 🛍 for night creams on ULTA because I had a 20% off coupon and found this gem 💎 ￼it has peptides and Ceramides. Claims to soften & restore the skin overnight ￼I usually wake up with dried, flaky skin around the mouth, cheeks, chin and temple area - not so much the nose and forehead, that stays pretty neutral. This has helped cut back on the dryness. ￼I do enjoy this, it’s a rich cream and I just dot it on the face then rub in. Good for winter days too 🥶❄️ CONS ￼it’s pricey for the amount of product so I feel like it’s a bit of a rip off and on top of that the jar wasn’t filled all the way. 😣 Apart from that I enjoy this cream and will continue to use it. If I don’t find a better night cream then I would buy this again 😊
2 products that use hyaluronic acid!
💦Key ingredient- hyaluronic acid 💦what is hyaluronic acid used for?(function and effects)- alleviating dry skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and speeding up wound healing. 💦why do I like this ingredient- Hyaluronic acid is a frequent component in acnetreatment systems, and it really helps to treat any acne I get on my face! 💦does hyaluronic acid really work in the peter Thomas roth cloud cream and the youth to the people kale and spinach green tea moisturizer? Yes definitely I see huge results! In the Peter Thomas Roth moisturizer I see big results in my fine lines and wrinkles! It also helps amazing with acne! And the youth to the people really helps with dryness on my skin! 💦advantages and disadvantages of the Peter Thomas Roth cloud cream- a good thing is that the texture is absolutely amazing it is so refreshing on the skin and it feels exactly like a fluffy and moisturizing cloud on your face! The effects on my fine lines and acne are amazing! And one disadvantage is that it is very pricy it is $52! 💦advantages and disadvantages of the Youth to the people kale and spinach cream- the texture is amazing and keeps my skin hydrated all night or all day depending on when I use it! Also another advantage is that it is 2oz which is a great size for a moisturizer! A disadvantage is that it is $48 which is a little more pricey then other moisturizers! 💦I absolutely love using these products and will always continue to use them even though they are more pricey, they do what I want them to do to my skin which makes me happy! I think my favorite and my preference is the youth to the people kale and spinach cream because it is super hydrating for my super dry skin and feels super refreshing on my skin, it also smells super fresh and is very pleasant!

Meebak Cica Cream
Perfect for the upcoming winter months is this thick meebak - Cica Face Cream Moisturizer ! I’ve been using this for about three weeks now, and can attest to its usefulness. This product was technically gifted but I reached out to Meebak as I was highly interested. Retinol and cica in one product? Sounds crazy. However, I truly do like this cream and would recommend to anyone. I have sensitive skin and it didn’t break me out or irritate my skin. Some of the product claims listed below: — Calming anti-aging cream is formulated with the healing power of Centella Asiatica and Madecassoside to strengthen the skin barrier. — Rebuilds and regenerates the skin barrier with ceramide and adenosine. — Consistently hydrates your moisture barrier with hyaluronic acid and ceramide. — Retouches your skin texture with Niacinamide and corrects your wrinkles and fine lines with retinol. This is a lovely lovely night time cream! It’s got retinol for age repair and cica for healing. How can you beat that? AND the price is so very affordable - $17 for 1.8 oz. Just remember to follow with sunscreen in the AM!! 4/5

My favorite SPF moisturizer!
The Murad Essential-C day moisture broad spectrum spf 30 is a powerful antioxidant rich moisturizer that shields and revitalizes environmentally stressed skin! This can be used for normal, oily, combo, dry, and sensitive skin types! This moisturizer creates a powerful shield to protect skin from UVA/UVB rays and free radical damage and renews skins moisture barrier. It can be solutions for skin clarity, firmness and elasticity. The texture of this is very thick and creamy that feels amazing on the skin! I really enjoy using this in the summer and any super sunny days during the year to protect my skin! I received this in an Ipsy bag a couple months ago and am definitely gonna buy the full size when I run out! It didn’t break me out and is super hydrating for my dry skin! I saw great results and my skin wasn’t getting as red as usual from the sun! I would recommend this to others as the third step moisturizer in any Murad environmental shield regimen! This is definitely worth purchasing! It is not cheap but a good splurge! It is $65 for 1.7oz but it’s really worth it!🧡🌴 Murad - Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++
Murad-Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA+++
Broke me out. Really bad. Had cysts all over my neck, which I never break out with. Not sure what ingredient it was in the formula but my skin did not agree with it. I had this little mini, but I also had the full size (I returned it to Sephora). I don’t recommend this product to oily or acne prone skin, if you have dry skin the thick texture could be great for you. Patch test first ☹️ Do love the pump design on the full size 👏🏻 Also expensive AF. 1.69oz for $60. No thanks. Quoted via the sephora site: “What it is: A rescue cream infused with six rare African oils and a ceramide complex for intense moisture and replenishing barrier support. Skin Type: Normal, Dry, Combination, and Oily Skincare Concerns: Dryness, Fine Lines, and Wrinkles Formulation: Rich Cream Highlighted Ingredients:- Six Rare African Oil Blend: Nourshes, rejuvenates, and moisturizes. - Ceramides AP, EOP, and NP: Help soothe and maintain the moisture balance of skin while protecting against water loss. - Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer: Has a smaller molecular weight than hyaluronic acid and is able to deeply penetrate skin, delivering excellent hydration and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.” DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream

Skin concerns:￼ firmness, Fine lines & wrinkles
I’m 40 now but since my mid 30’s I have been on search for the perfect night cream to help with firmness (elasticity), hydration, and help with my fine lines & wrinkles. I have purchased several Elemis products before & absolutely loved the Elemis anti-aging Eye serum. I have read & heard so many good things about there night cream, I decided to give it a try. I have been using this now for 5 months every night before bed & I feel in love 😍 The texture is thick, rich & creamy but doesn’t feel heavy on your face or leave your face feeling greasy. It has this soft calming smell, that is so relaxing. My skin is just loving this product, it just drinks it up. You can start to feel it working the moment you apply it, Instant softness. They give you this little tool to dip in and a little bit of this product goes along way. The next morning after my first time using I woke up to my face feeling amazing, very hydrated, super soft and smooth. Over the next few weeks I noticed that my pores were looking more refined, my skin looked dewy and more youthful. I noticed my fine lines on my forehead Were not as noticeable, and my complexion looked more uniformed & glowy. It Definitely helped calm down the redness from my rosacea, and has helped immensely with my dry skin. This product overall has left my skin feeling soo much healthier, brighter and youthful. I highly recommend this product to anyone over the age of 30 that is looking for a great night cream to help delay the signs of aging. It’s pricey at $120 to $160 per bottle but it is worth it. 5/5 ⭐️ If you sign up for Elemis text you get 15% off your initial purchase and they will let you know when they’re having sales which they do a lot.

Drunk in love with LaLa
DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream The Lala retro whipped moisturizer with ceramides has been my winter moisturizer for almost 2 months, and in those two months my skin has felt more hydrated, less red ,and nourished. This has to be one of my favourite drunk elephant products. I love that the consistency of this moisturizer is whipped but it’s not greasy, it’s sinks in perfectly. The added bonus of having ceramides is wonderful. Ceramides are great for moisturizing, protecting, and reducing any inflammation in the skin. This is a moisturizer I fully recommend for anyone with any skin type.
