This serum seriously does it ALL 👏🏽
I love a good serum, seriously.. (it’s a problem 🙈) This serum from Purito is my absolute fave! It is a great multitasker, super affordable, and is made of super high quality formulations. It’s also PERFECT for sensitive skin, those with weakened skin barriers, or have dry flakey skin because it’s combination of ingredients that rebuild your barrier. This serum in unscented 🙌🏽 which is somewhat hard to find these days, and delivers a powerful skin cocktail without any irritating essential oils or harsh synthetic fragrances. Not only does this serum help reduce some of my inflamed acne that comes around my monthly hormone surge, but it also helps repair the dark spots left on my skin. This serum is going to be a staple in my routine for forever because it simply does it all! PURITO - Centella Unscented Serum

Negative temps got me like...
Living in Wisconsin can be rough on the skin. Temperature dipping below zero and whipping wind are harsh. My winter routine is focused on hydration and keeping my skin barrier intact. Here are a couple of products I have had a good experience with this winter. 1. PURITO - Centella Unscented Serum I love this serum because it is unscented and A great ingredient list. Centella repairs a damaged skin barrier and soothe irritated skin. The Centella Asiatica Extract and Panthenol help calm the irritated skin preventing further inflammation. 2. DRUNK ELEPHANT - F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask I use this on top of my moisturizer. The formulation includes a number of different barrier replenishing ingredients including its name sake vitamin F. 3. Krave - Great Barrier Relief GBR is a thicker serum that offers a blend of conditioning oils that helps repair the skin barrier while simultaneously helping with hyperpigmentation and breakouts. 4. EMINENCE - Clear Skin Probiotic Masque This brand was recommended to me by an esthetician. Not only is it moisturizing, but it helps clear your complexion. Formulated with cooling cucumber tones and refining yogurt, which exfoliates and eliminates the appearance of blemishes.
MY FAVORITE SERUMS AFFORDABLE $ ❣️💦
Krave - Great Barrier Relief This is my most favorite one, it has great ingredients and it’s very hydrating, I’m been using it every day 🥰 $28 PURITO - Centella Unscented Serum This is my 2nd favorite, It absorbed quickly, and it’s hydrating as well. $16 CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum This is my 3rd one and it’s very creamy and very good at clearing up my scars from previous pimples. 💜 I use it 2 x week. $15 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I like it, but this is best for an oily skin ☺️ help with my dark spots❣️ $6 Have a great day! 💜💜
SOS Thirst Quenching Serum
This was my first time trying Caudalie. Usually once I’m set with a products I love, I really don’t branch out for a while. Especially if their working ya know? But I’m on this kick where I’m obsessed with buying these kits 🙌🏼 This one made its way to being one of my favorites. I’m definitely going to try some other products of theirs :) CAUDALIE - Vinosource SOS Deep Hydration Serum It’s an oil-free serum packed with hyaluronic acid to treat, hydrate, and soothe dehydrated and irritated skin. It’s best for normal to dry skin, it’s so hydrating. I only use it on my face about twice a week and on my neck every night. It’s such a light weight serum, feels like water when it goes on. It’s definitely safe for sensitive skin!! If you are the Sahara desert dry, you need this boo!! 😉💕 Highlighted Ingredients: Organic Grape Water: Moisturizes and soothes. Hyaluronic Acid: Hydrates and plumps. Olive Squalane: Deeply moisturizes, heals cracked or chapped skin, and soothes eczema and excessive dryness 💞

Caudalie Serum Review!
Hi guys! I just wanted to quickly introduce and talk about one of my all time favourite serums from a i looooove this brand I can’t talk enough about! The Caudalie Vinosource Serum. This serum helps quench your skin when it’s feeling a little parched and dry. I love using this when I accidentally do too much exfoliating and strip my skin, this saves me! This product feels so soft and silky and it just sinks right into the skin like a glass of water and it smells like a clean product. It’s a very hard scent to describe but you’ll fall in love in love with it! You can use this every night if you have chronic dry skin.. or you can use it whenever your skin needs a pick me up!! Overall you should definitely pick up this product next time you go to Sephora if you have any of the concerns I mentioned because it really just is THAT great
So what exactly are ceramides?
Ceramide is a word often seen in skincare but I don’t see it explained very much. If you have dry, sensitive, or sensitized skin ceramides are going to be your best friend. I have oily skin myself and I still incorporate ceramides into my routine. Firstly, what is a ceramide? Ceramides are lipids that help form the skin’s barrier. Your skin barrier is compromised of your outer layer of skin and it acts as a barrier to protect the skin from irritants, allergens, and anything else bad for it. What do ceramides do? When ceramides aid in creating that protective barrier it’s not only shielding the skin but helping prevent moisture loss. TEWL (Trans Epidermal Water Loss) is a common occurrence in the skin where you lose water as it passes through the skin and evaporates. Ceramides lock in this moisture and prevent it from escaping. Benefits of using ceramides? Ceramides help prevent dryness, dehydration, and signs of premature aging. All skin types can benefit from ceramides. Especially if your skin barrier has been compromised due to over exfoliating or irritants. They lock in that moisture which is essential for healthy, plump, and radiant skin. Currently I’m using the BEEKMAN 1802 - Milk Drops Probiotic Ceramide Serum which is a new product for me. I receive this at gratis from work. This ceramide serum retails for $45 and you get .95 oz of product. It’s on the pricier side of ceramide serums but if you’re looking for new brands to try I have been enjoying it. Beekman 1802 is all about infusing goat milk into their skincare as it’s full of moisture boosting fat molecules, has redness calming properties, and vitamin A. This serum contains ceramides, squalane, hyaluronic acid, and plant enzymes. It’s meant to add moisture while giving dull skin a boost of radiance. I have oily yet dehydrated skin and this has done a really good job at bringing the moisture back to my skin. I mainly use this at night time. It almost has a serum oil consistency. It’s not as thick as an oil but it’s a little thicker than yours typical serum. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and absorbs right in once you work it into the skin. It leaves my skin very supple which I’ve been liking. My only complaint is Rosa Damascena Flower Extract is the second ingredient so I would do a patch test if you’re sensitive to fragrance. Personally, I don’t like fragrance in my skincare but when I got to touch this product for the first time the consistency and how nice it made my hand feel made me want to try it really bad. So far I’ve yet to see a reaction in my eczema or redness so I’m thinking it’s a win so far.

Hydration game changer!
PRODUCT: belif - Hungarian Water Essence This is a lightweight hydration essence that hydrates skin from deep within. It has a watery texture that instantly glides on skin. The formula contains herbs like rosemary and lavender that have powerful antioxidant agents. MY THOUGHTS: I started using this essence a few weeks ago and I’m already considering it to be a staple in my skincare routine. I have dry skin so I’m always on the lookout for hydrating products. This water essence is the most lightweight product I’ve ever used. It feels like water as soon as it comes in contact with your skin and I really feel the deep hydration that it provides. Ever since I started using it my skin feels SO much more hydrated and I’ve had no issues with breakouts or irritation even though I have extremely sensitive skin. This is the perfect product to use on your face/neck after cleansing and toning. SIDE NOTE: ✨I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. ✨This product is dermatologist tested and is free of mineral oil, sulfates, petrolatum, synthetic preservatives, dyes, fragrances, and animal origin ingredients. (Clean at Sephora)🌱

More like a great essence/toner but great!
Origins Mega Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment LotionORIGINS - Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion This is my new favorite toner since my skin has been more sensitive recently! It’s meant to help soothe irritation and redness on sensitive skin but is still hydrating. It’s more of an essence like toner than it is a lotion; so don’t let the name throw you off. This toner helps calm my skin down when it’s itchy or red. It’s gentle enough that I used it this week while I was sick and had peeling skin around my nose. I like that it’s so hydrating because I can use it every day and it gives me a nice feeling. Lastly, I like the herbal scent because it makes me feel as if I’m applying an elixir LOL. I give it 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
ORIGINS-Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion
Modulating Glucosides by Niod (Deciem) It’s a serum with thick cream consistency of baby yellow colour. It’s a cocktail of numerous ingredients to target sensitivity and inflammation. What is it for: 🐣calming sensitive skin 🐣reduce inflammation 🐣reduce itching and peeling 🐣restore skin 🐣reducing stinging feeling 🐣reducing redness Overall it’s a great product that calms skin within like 8 minutes. Reducing the feeling of stressed irritated skin. I can’t use it more than once in two days as it can break my skin out, but I still love it and enjoying it. Also your skin will feel more hydrated, balanced and moistured. In a long run I don’t think it had influence on my rosacea or flushing, as Azelaic Acid helps a lot more with this.This is great of your skin is easily irritated by acids, as this serum would go before anything else. The key ingredients that I think make it work is Bisabol, Glucosides, amino Acids, Tetrasodium Tetracarboxymethyl Naringeninchalcone,Superoxide Dismutase (which you can get as Mist from Niod) and others. All of them have great properties and are useful for people with sensitive skin.
