My favorite Glycolic Acid Toner

SATURDAY SKIN - Pore Clarifying Toner 10% Glycolic Acid + Pore Control Complex
Glycolic acid is a chemical exfoliant that treats hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, dull skin, and the appearance of pores. This ingredient is suitable for all skin types. Definitely patch test before using especially if you have sensitive skin. I’ve used the ordinary and the YTTP toners with glycolic acid and out of the three this one gives me less of that tingling sensation. My skin was definitely smoother, brighter, and even the next morning. I’ve been using this for quite some time and my skin loves this! Highlighted Ingredients: ✨Glycolic Acid: exfoliates skin and minimizes pores ✨Witch Hazel: balances skin and improves texture/tone ✨Sodium PCA: supports skin’s natural moisture factor

Saturday Skin Favs
Love all the three products from Saturday skin. It’s great that the product is instagrammable, but Saturday skin is more than just a pretty face... it works great and delivers the result it promises. WIDE AWAKE BRIGHTENING EYE CREAM As far as eye creams go, this is one of the best I’ve used. The texture is more of a dense souffle-like gel than a cream. It hydrates and strengthens the delicate skin around the eyes,helping to reduce puffiness and dark circles. RUB-A-DUB REFINING PEEL GEL This is an exfoliator with a difference… Simply massage the gel into your face as you rub, the formula picks up the impurities and dead skin that clogs pores, causing it to visibly peel off in tiny balls. The result is super-smooth, exfoliated skin, but without the sting that acids and scrubs have. PORE CLARIFYING TONER This toner helps to address the look of skin tone and texture. It has witch hazel, tea tree oil, and red clover. The blend helps create the appearance of a smooth, pore-less complexion.

Pixi Glow Tonic
Pixi Glow Tonic
I’d rather get coal than the Pixi Glow Tonic! I don’t usually have products that just absolutely don’t work out for me but there is this one! And one that the masses love! The product: Glow Tonic that helps deeply clean pores by removing excess oil and impurities. My impressions: so I tried this out and then went to bed and when I woke up I had huge pimples and random bumps everywhere I use the toner, t-zone and chin. The only new product I incorporated into my routine m so I know it was that. Don’t know whether it was just my skin or the other products either way was not pretty. How it worked for my dry skin: it was very hydrating but I can’t really attest to how it was because I used it once and had such a bad effect then I never thought how dry my skin was more was thinking what are these little bumps and how did I get these pimples so fast. Length of use: one use Cost: for a big one $29 Recommend: I know so many love it but I’m not sure why I had such adverse reaction. I don’t have extremely sensitive skin and usually my skin can handle a bit. So can’t recommend just from my reaction to it. Repurchase: nope, I love The Ordinary, and Youth To The People Toner much better! Overall rating:pixi - Glow Tonic just cause I can’t rate lower... have you tried Glow Tonic and what are your thoughts?

Especially toners because I find that they are less drying. The smell is herbaceous but lovely and not overwhelming for those of you that are sensitive to scents. I don't have large pores, but I do have ones I notice around my nose and this has really shrunk those since I started using. For me, this has meant less breakouts from summer sweat. This is a great K-beauty skincare product that I highly recommend. My only complaint is that it only comes in 4 fl oz (but is also available in a refreshing mist option). Highly recommend.⁣⁣⁣
Sahajan 🥥 FAVE OR MEH?
Sahajan 🥥 FAVE OR MEH?
I’ll just start with the verdict: FAVE 🌟 Why? a skincare line that shows more immediate results compared to most brands it’s where Ayurvedic wisdom meets science it’s local to Canada (made in Toronto), with ethical ingredient sourcing sahajan - Balance Toner Key ingredients: Moringa oil (antioxidant, removes impurities), Rose water (soothing), Orange+lemon+bilberry extracts (gentle exfoliation) smoothens out skin texture overtime, with gentle exfoliation. I like to use it for minimizing breakouts and quickly clearing up blemish scars. Also it’s such a good deal for your buck at $40 CAD. I’ve had mine since November and with nearly daily use, I still have half of a bottle left! sahajan - Nourish Face Cream Key ingredients: Triphala (antioxidant), Gotu kola (firming), Coconut oil (nourishing) I started using this in the winter as I assumed it to be a little too dense back when I was introduced to it in the summer; however, it absorbs into the skin so well! I like to use it on top of my hydration serum, especially before applying makeup, as it slightly mattifies the skin with a hint of a natural glow. sahajan - Radiance Eye Cream Key ingredients: Coconut oil (hydrating), Honey (repairing), Triphala (brightening), Neem (anti-inflammatory) Though, this is a pretty new addition to my skincare routine, I really enjoy this eye cream experience. It absorbs super well and is really hydrating. Great for wearing at night after going crazy on the eyes with makeup or just to look more awake! 👀 I’d also like to add that usually I wouldn’t use coconut oil on my face, as it broke me out in high school, but this line uses it in an effective, non pore-clogging way 👏🏽
Balance Toner
sahajan-Balance Toner

One special ingr
juvaskincare One special ingredient in Juva’s products is Fullerene. Fullerene has an antioxidant potential that can neutralize free radicals from our everyday pollution and stress.This ingredient won the Nobel prize, and its antioxidant capacity is 172 times higher than that of vitamin C!! Fullerene is very stable in high temperature or highly contaminated environment. ✨-Brightening Enhancer This is similar to a toner. It claims to restore skin radiance. I like to spritz this after cleanser. It absorbs really well and quickly. There is barely any scent to this product. It leaves my face soft. ✨-Brightening Essence This contains a high concentration of Fullerene. I have been using is for about 2 weeks. My skin has been feeling very soft and skin tone is brighter after using these products. ✨-Brightening Lotion -It contains sunflower seed oil, shea butter, glycerin, and fullerene. This has a lightweight creamy texure that goes on skin efforlessly. It absorbs well. This is a good moisturizer for the summer because it is lightweight. I, however, use another cream on top of this in the evening. ✨-Brightening Facial Jelly- It contains cucumber extract and ginseng root extract. It is supposed to provide hydration to your skin. I definitely love using this when my face needs extra TLC. Overall, these products are good and gentle products. They don’t have strong fragrance; actually, none at all to me beside the jelly mask. My skin feels and looks refreshed and brighten after using these for 2 weeks.
I'm going to bring you two bra
I'm going to bring you two brands that I recently discovered . lingskincare formulate their products using a holistic philosophy merging traditional Asian beauty principles with State-of-the-Art ingredients. 🌿Triple Action Exfololiator formulates with pineapple enzymes, crushed almonds, and honey. It claims to erase impurities and dead skin. I use this twice a week. I was expecting this to be stripping since most exfoliators are. But this leaves my face so so soft every time. A must try from this brand. 🌿Replenish Hydrator contains Hyaluronic Acid and Rose water. This toner helps balance my skin and makes it super soft! I use this every day and oh my love love. 🌿Moisture Replenish Serum contains,hyaluronic acid,bamboo, lotus, and water lily. It claims to hydrate, firming, and diminish the look of fine lines. This definitely a great hydration serum. My skin is plumper nowadays. 🌿DNA DONOTAGE CELLULAR YOUTH EXTENSION CREAM.Infused with Teprenone, hylarunonic acid, and squalane.Teprenone was recognized with a Nobel Prize for its ability to help skin appear healthier looking and younger-acting. It claims to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. This cream is thick and very moisturizing., After using these altogether for more than a month every day. I highly reccomend this brand.
