I thought I’d quickly share my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE skin care + makeup product and the face that comes along with it 😂 Anyone that sees this post, I challenge you to do this with the same layout and tag me!! 1. Mad Hippie - Vitamin A Serum This product is my saviour of everything pigmentation and hydration! I started off using it every other night but now I use it every night. In the morning my skin is plumped, SOFT AF and smooth like a babies butt. It’s basically a super gentle serum that shares properties of retinol but super safe. Whenever my eczema gets bad and my hyperpigmentation gets worse from the sun, using this product overtime has helped me so much! Physical exfoliants and salicylic acid tend to be very harsh on my skin and 9/10 my eczema reacts so to have a product that sinks into your skin and compliments your skincare routine... yes please. One thing I will say is please be patient. I purchased this product almost two years ago and I thought it wasn’t good because I didn’t see immediate results. Giving it a second try last year BOY AM I THANKFUL. If you want an exfoliator that is not overly drying and safe for sensitive skin... look no further 2. DERMABLEND - Loose Setting Powder I’ve spoken about this in a previous post but I love this product SO MUCH for the smooth airbrushed YET natural look effect 🥺 I use this DAILY with DERMABLEND - Flawless Creator Multi-Use Liquid Foundation Drops and they work perfect together. Another reason why this is my absolute favourite is because it keeps everything LOCKED. I’m extremely active and I’m constantly moving around and/or sweating. It’s so nice to have a product that keeps my concealer and everything else on stuck ALL while NOT clogging my pores (girl yesss, I know!!) I’ve recently started using the powder by itself after my moisturizer because (according to dermablend) it can help lock the moisture in and so far my skin looks and feels silky smooooooth Okay thanks for reading my long essay Bye guys!! :)

I’ll make this super short and quick. I purchased this mask because I was looking for a hydrating, dermatologist approved, safe for sensitive skin face mask. Unfortunately this face mask didn’t do much. The texture is creamy and easy to apply. Ultimately this mask is suppose to cater towards a healthy glow but I didn’t really see much of that/I own face masks that could do a lot better. After applying my skin didn’t feel dry (which is great) however it didn’t feel super hydrated either 🤷🏾‍♀️ It also didn’t work well on my sundamaged skin area because it was slightly irritated the next day. Now I’m not saying this wouldn’t work for you because a good friend of mine calls this her holy grail but to each their own 🙂 3 stars for the scent and cute packaging Thanks for reading yall 💓

Current AM routine (early 2020)
Hey guys :) Thought I’d share my current skin routine that I’ve been using consistently since mid January 2020 For those who don’t know I’m on this whole “less is more” agenda which is why I know longer use a cleanser (in the morning), toner, super expensive serums and/or sprays Pros from this routine 1. Face is QUENCHED (i love using that word) 2. Weightless feel (my face can BREATHE) To keep this simple I use hyaluronic acid - moisturizer - eye cream - SPF Ok let’s start :) reversa - Hydra-Minéral Concentrate Before using this product I was using La Roche posay hydraphase intense serum. That hyaluronic serum was SO GOOD but SO EXPENSIVE for its quantity. $45 a month (no thank u) A super nice lady at shoppers recommended Reversa. Very similar in pricing but that quantity though >>> This product provides me with a plumped and refreshed feel however in regards to hydration and treatment long term this is NOT a product you can use alone (like the bottle says) 4 stars because 1. anti pollutant (these streets stay dirty af) 2. Aloe Vera 🤤 Avène - Skin Recovery Cream Just need to clarify with this product there’s the rich texture vs emulsion... I have emulsion As someone who has eczema, Avene (SUPER UNDERRATED company btw) has been so good to me They talk about thermal spring water in their products a lot and I’m not 100% what that means but I would personally like to bless that water. I get flakey on irritated parts of my face. I thought the rich creamy texture would be better however the emulsion is extremely hydrating and super light. So for my ladies who think you need to layer and drenched your face in order to stay hydrated... girl try this please! I give this 5 because when my skin gets irritated from either sun damage or eczema, the moisturizer doesn’t “sting” or “burn” it does quite the opposite (thank u spring water i think) and that’s why Avene needs the respect that is deserves... NEXT The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG I’ll be honest I think a lot of eye creams are gimmicks when it comes to curing dark circles. At the end of the day a lot of it comes down to nutrition and genetics so get you an eye cream that FEELS GOOD and provides hydration :) I give the ordinary 4 stars because uh the price and the fact that this product has lasted me almost a year. 2 drops a day keeps the puffiness at bay + I really enjoy the sooth feeling for 2 seconds Kk almost done LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios 50 Ultra-Light Tinted Mineral Sunscreen SPF 50 Need an spf that wont give you that pasty white, reflective power ranger sheeny look? Look no further. la Roche posay products are usually eczema friendly so I trust the ingredients for my sensitive gals. The texture is super light you could even mix it with your makeup (yes I’ve tried) Ok thanks for reading 🥺

Holy grail - for uneven problematic skin
Holy grail - for uneven problematic skin
For a looooong time, I’ve been looking for a “tinted moisturizer” that could 1. Cover areas on my face with severe hyperpigmentation (thank u eczema x sun damage) 2. Not irritate my eczema (I flake BAD when irritated) 3. Not too heavy because I work out a lot (sweat) and who wants clogged pores post training??? :( Truth is, I don’t think a “tinted moisturizer” like that exists 🤷🏾‍♀️ Dermablend flawless creator pigment drops however... saved my life (yes I’m serious) My biggest battle when searching was finding a product that was not pasty (whitish undertone) in colour and had some super magical smooth skin coverage. Yes yes I know what you’re thinking, “mam have you heard of concealer?”. The truth is, my relationship with concealers on sun damaged, flake prone eczema loving skin is not a thing because majority have thick clog poring ingredients (that I cannot prononunce) DERMA BLEND PIGMENT DROPS: I kid you not, 2 drops and it covers EVERYTHING I consider it more like a tinted moisturizer because at the end of the day I control the consistency. I think what sold me on this was the “less than 10 ingredients” I’m on this whole “less is more” routine because I’m convinced almost everything irritates my eczema and I think this product is a great daily cover up for skin that is trying to heal. I still use a concealer for under my eyes because I prefer a lighter shade, HOWEVER for everything sun damage and pigment, dermablend covers everything with a natural finish. You’d never know I’m wearing foundation. The fact that even on days where my skin is on the drier side I KNOW the flawless creator won’t make it worse and that is why it is my holy grail. SETTING POWDER: Now to quickly talk about the setting powder, I purchased it because my under eye concealer is famous for sliding off my face within 2 minutes of application. Again, as someone who’s super active, the setting powder keeps everything together all day and I loveeeeeee the smooth canvas natural look it provides. I thought the white powder with a matte finish would be a problem for my brown (yellow undertone) face with dry eczema thirsty ass skin but I can assure you if I dumped the whole thing on my face it would not dry out or give me that wretched casper the ghost flashback ashiness in photos Together these products have made my morning routine super easy and have made my journey to better skin 10x easier. I highly recommend this brand guys :) Cheers, T DERMABLEND - Flawless Creator Multi-Use Liquid Foundation Drops DERMABLEND - Loose Setting Powder

JELLY!? For your face!? Yes please! 💁🏻‍♂️
JELLY!? For your face!? Yes please! 💁🏻‍♂️
Okay so I’m trying my hand at a many “non mask” masks these days and when I spotted this colorful little container filled with a jelly like consistency I was instantly confused and curious and knew I had to try it! I didn’t think this was going do anything but make me feel like Winnie the Pooh, all sticky and sweet but seconds after application I was hooked. The tingling sensation from the ginger, I assume, was super gratifying. I was also afraid the turmeric was gonna dye my face orange like it does my fingers when I cook but there was no trace what so ever and the vitamin c content was just enough to not overpower the glorious smells of spices. I was like, okay yes!!! It says to leave on 10 minutes but I could have kept it on longer for sure! When I wiped it clean I instantly saw brightness and tightness in my pores as well as a much softer complexion then I had the day before! I must say this jelly was a pleasant surprise and I can understand why they say use up to three times a week on the packaging! It’s like a soft kiss for your face, which who doesn’t love!

I just used the last of this amazing power scrub mask! Not only does it smell SO GOOD but it works wonders for my combination skin, and when the seasons are changing or i'm having a not-so-good skin day, this replenishes my skin INSTANTLY. The packaging says that this product contains many "nutritive ingredients such as fresh plants, fruits, etc. to keep our skin healthy." You know me, I like to dig a little deeper into the ingredients. This product contains: Sucrose: an ingredient that soothes the skin and moisturizes, helps with blemish control, and is a natural exfoliator. Glycerin: helps with acne, wrinkles, good with oily skin types while still attracting moisture to the skin to keep it soft and supple. Seed oilS: anti-inflammatory properties, restores our skin barrier, and hydrates AND SO MANY MORE AMAZING INGREDIENTS I give this product 4/5 stars because it does have fragrance, (though it's the last ingredient) and has one paraben. Overall, This product is to die for! Skin mask junkies, invest in this for ONLY $10 at ulta!

Protect your skin from UV
Protect your skin from UV
Yes I’m talking about sunscreen. Did you know that protecting your skin against UVA/UVB rays is the best way to keep your skin looking young. It helps protect against sun damage- and sun damage is the culprit to wrinkles and sun-spots (duh) so do the needy and protect your skin 😉 I absolutely love this sunscreen, it is the first spf I tried that doesnt leave a white cast, doesnt feel oily or greasy, doesnt feel grainy textured due to the mineral zinc oxide, but smoothes onto the skin seamlessly and feels super comfortable! Having oily skin, I struggled finding a sunscreen that didnt make me look shiny and feel gross, so I was really happy when I found this product. I actually had it applied as a last step when I got a facial one time, realized it was medical grade skincare/spf and even though it was expensive, I thought it was 100% worth it

Vitamin C power✨
Vitamin C power✨
reversa - Radiance-C Concentrate 20% Pure Vitamin C One of the most important vitamins for skincare is vitamin C. Vitamin C is crucial for 20 years olds. This product helps with dullness, hyperpigmentation, uneven texture and evens out skin tone. Additionally, vitamin c aids in sun damage and works tremendously with SPF to protect the skin. The concentrate also has hyaluronic acid and vitamin E which aids in moisture for the skin. Great for normal to dry skin types. ——————————————— How to use? This product is a stable vitamin C, thus it is safe to use during both, the AM and PM. However when using during the day, SPF is a critical. Rinse the face, tone and apply the vitamin C by gently patting the face. ——————————————— My experience I live by this product! I have using this for over a year and it has literally saved my skin. I suffered from sun damage, I had white spots, lots of hyperpigmentation and dullness. The high concentration of 20% has cured the hyperpigmentation and the sun damage. It has significantly treated the dullness in my skin and the hyaluronic acid has simultaneously created hydration. ——————————————— Recommend 100% As a result, I highly highly recommend this product. It is important to build a tolerance for vitamin C. Start with a low percentage (5%) and slowly build a tolerance. A continuous daily use will create huge a difference to the skin!
