Some cool toned empties
😍 = would repurchase or have already 🙃 = didn’t love it, didn’t hate it 💀 = would not repurchase 😍 Sunday Riley Juno Facial Oil- I’ve gone through about four bottles of this. It’s an antioxidant rich facial oil that’s a bit on the heavier side (I prefer to use at night). This stuff works wonders for my skin. It hydrated and balances out my combo skin and leaves me looking glowing like my skin just drank a green juice. It even helps with my acne. Favorite oil of all time. 😍 Hum Daily Cleanse- I bought these in a frenzy when I was going through a weird bout of adult acne and I was amazed. Not only did they clear up my skin but my skin is brighter and glowier than before. Have already repurchased these. 😍 Sunday Riley A+ High Dose Retinol Serum- This is my favorite OTC retinol I’ve ever used. It’s pretty strong for over the counter (.5% when converted by the skin) but I use this nightly with no irritation and it really helps with dark spots, acne, and firming. I also love that this has such a lightweight texture (I find some retinols can have sort of a thick pasty texture that I don’t love) and is balanced with soothing ingredients like CoQ10 and honey. 💀 Supergoop x Rebecca Taylor Defense Refresh Setting Refresh Setting Mist- This was kind of strongly fragrances to me and every time I used it I felt like I was inhaling the product which kind of freaked me out. It also made my hair greasy when I used it so I would not repurchase. 😍 First Aid Beauty Barriar Repair Cream- This stuff is amazing. The texture is really unique it almost foams up inside the jar but once you apply to your skin it’s lightweight and incredibly hydrating. In my opinion a great $30 dupe for the Tatcha Water Cream. 😍 Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask in Mint Chocolate Chip. I still prefer the berry one but any Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a win for me. Nothing makes my lips smoother and plumper than this product. I’ve been through I think 7 tubs now. 💀 Belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb- I know everyone loves this stuff but I just wasn’t sold. It was a little too fragranced for me and I honestly just forgot I had it for awhile. It wasn’t awful or anything but it didn’t really wow me and I would not repurchase.

Mix & match: retinol + HA 💦
Retinol can be quite drying and irritating when you’re first getting on it so it’s important to have the right products to prevent some of that dryness. My favorite to counteract the irritation from retinol is hyaluronic acid, I love to use an essence because it’s light enough so that the retinol can still penetrate through and helps skin retain moisture to help with retinol-induced dryness. This duo is amazing! The COSRX - Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence is just an incredible product that I’ve mentioned time and time again. It just works and lasts forever, I apply it after spritzing my face with the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha these three just work wonders together. Now the star of this trio is the SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum I love it because even tho it isn’t prescription strength it’s effective and does wonder for skin. I think it’s great if you’re in your late 20’s and starting to get into preventive anti-aging skincare.
Acne and Scarring
These photos are a year apart - I took the one on the right this morning. I am going through a transition/purge from switching my whole routine to something that doesn’t overexfoliate, overdry and overstrip like I was doing using some other products. I was beyond determined (still sort of am) to banish the acne and clear up the awful scarring as quickly and as harshly as I could just to fix my skin and after a year I have learned a valuable lesson. Time. Time will give you results. Trust in your skincare routine, don’t switch it up so desperately like I used to. Be patient and gentle with your beautiful skin because it can only take so much. I started over moisturizing and hydrating to fix my barrier, switched to a much more gentle exfoliator and a retinol that doesn’t dry the sh*t out of my skin. And look! It’s working! So instead look to nourish the skin instead of a quick fix and I think you’ll be okay 😘😘 Since this is Cherie, I’ll tag the products that work for ME! Please remember everyone is DIFFERENT and we all have different needs and results.

What’s working for my dry/combo skin!
I have combination skin that tends to be more dry. I’m fortunate that I don’t break out too much, just the occasional pimple here and there. I’ve spent a long time though trying out products and seeing what works for me. I’ve had great results at times and I’ve had terrible reactions from my “experiments” at other times. Lol These products are my “go to” products at the moment that have been giving me really flawless skin. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Toner I have been using this toner for years and I love it! Seriously shrinks my pores and feels instantly hydrated. I always have this toner on hand. SHISEIDO - Ultimune Power Infusing Serum Concentrate I’ve also been using this serum for several years and feel like it gives my skin a great complexion. It just looks hydrated and healthy. This serum is suppose to be able to enhance your other serums if you apply it before but I usually don’t layer too many serums because I find that it becomes too much and clogs my pores. I have layered this one on occasion when I have severely dry skin but usually I just alternate serums. Elizabeth Arden - PREVAGE Anti-Aging Daily Serum This brand has been around for years and when I saw this line I had to try it because I was impressed with its key ingredients. It’s suppose to protect from environmental aggressors, free radicals, has time release technology, and is anti aging. I must admit, this serum makes my skin look flawless. I’m just not in love with the texture of it, it’s a little thick for me. I also feel like the packaging is cheap. I would recommend this but before I re-buy, there are a few products I’d like to try out first. Elizabeth Arden - Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum Now I’m in love with these capsules! It’s no wonder this serum has won so many awards. Everyone should be using retinol by their late 20s and this one keeps its potency by putting it in capsules and it’s just the perfect amount to cover your face and neck. I always wake up with a great looking complexion and never had a reaction to this one. I plan to keep this in my nighttime routine a long time. SAINT JANE - Luxury CBD Beauty Serum I loved the ingredients in this oil and was intrigued by the high dosage of CBD. I have liked wearing this oil and has a sleek bottle but it’s just not changing my skin enough for me to keep buying. When my skin is under control I really don’t struggle with breakouts or redness so I’m probably not the ideal buyer for this oil. Would recommend though. SUNDAY RILEY - Juno Antioxidant + Superfood Face Oil I’ve loved Sunday Riley for years now! This is my favorite oil so far. (Until I try Vintner’s Daughter.😂) Super hydrating and packed full of great ingredients! Skin always looks refreshed.
My current favorites!
These are some of my latest and greatest top shelf products! I absolutely adore these products and can’t picture my life without them! OLAPLEX - No. 7 Bonding Oil OUAI - Ouai Hair Oil SUNDAY RILEY - Juno Antioxidant + Superfood Face Oil The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 fresh - Soy Makeup Removing Face Wash

I had never bought one of these for myself until I got jealous that I was buying my older sister the limited edition set at Christmas time. 😂 She mentioned her lips were so dry during the winter and I had heard such good things about these lip sleeping masks. I ended up buying the grapefruit one for myself later on and I loved it. The mint choco mask was added to Sephora separate from the limited edition kit and I wanted to try it since I love dessert. To me the scent isn’t as strong as the grapefruit mask, but it’s enough. I recently bought the sweet candy mask during the Sephora sale and I can’t wait to try it! I always use these at night, but if I need it, I will use them during the day too. I don’t wake up with dry or sticky lips like some people experience, mine are juuuuuust right!
LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
Do yourself a favor and get the LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask. I’m obsessed. I’m on my third pot in the original berry mix flavor, which is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants. This Korean beauty product uses an exclusive moisture wrap technology that boasts hyaluronic acid and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture. LANEIGE also makes a glowy balm - the perfect size for your purse or pocket
#SPFeveryday with Supergoop
If you're looking for some excellent sunscreens I highly highly recommend supergoop. Their spf moisturizer is incredible, the glow stick is my dewy sunscreen dream, and I love their branding/message/innovation. 10/10/10/10 ☀️💛
Saturday Skin Probiotic Power Whipped Cream
SATURDAY SKIN - Pretty Pop Probiotic Power Whipped Cream I adore the Saturday Skin bright potion serum, so when they gifted me their new pretty pop probiotic power whipped cream, I expected to be equally infatuated. Cute holographic packaging? Check. Powerhouse ingredients? Check. Probiotics AND prebiotics? Check. Yet it doesn't quite measure up to the bright potion serum, even though I'm aware that comparing the two doesn't make a ton of sense since they're completely different product types. Like the rest of the probiotic power line, the cream has niacinamide (my favorite skincare ingredient) to soothe and even out skin tone, four types of probiotics to improve complexion and strengthen the moisture barrier, and two types of prebiotics to help the probiotics work better. (I know, it was hard to word that bit) There's also hibiscus extract to smoothe texture, as well as moringa seed extract to make skin glow. On paper, this sounded perfect, yet despite the light texture, it left my skin feeling greasy even though I'm on the dry side. It has been quite humid here lately, so this could very well work better in cooler weather. There are little probiotic beads that release upon application, which is fine since it goes on so easily, but that part wasn't clearly mentioned, so when I first opened it I thought mine had gone off somehow. It's too early to speak to its brightening abilities; perhaps that'll change given time and/or using it in conjunction with the serum. I'm all for splurging on a product that really works for you, but in this case the $57 price tag doesn't feel justified. Currently only available online at Sephora

Belif it or not this is my favourite moisturizer
belif - The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb The True Cream-Moisturizing Bomb is an ultra-hydrating rich cream that has a light whipped texture. This moisturizer is formulated with comfrey leaf extract, which makes your skin soft, reduces inflammation and helps to moisture your skin. If a moisturizer can make my skin feel baby soft upon application and after an entire day, relieve my extra dry skin (especially my nose), and give my skin a nice glow I’m all about it. There’s something different about how the Belif moisturizers make my skin feel. They are truly impressive.
Absolutely Amazing Facial Cream from Belif!
Today, I'm recommending an absolutely amazing moisturizing facial cream - Belif The True Cream Aqua Bomb andbelif - The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb. The moisturizing bomb has a white creamy texture which is more suitable for dry skin, while the aqua bomb has a gel texture which is more suitable for oily and combination-oily skin. I use the moisturizing bomb in winter because my skin tends to get dry. It has a slight citrus scent with a hint of ginger. It's really hydrating and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy at all. I have combination-oily skin and I wanted a lightweight facial cream, so I bought the aqua bomb for summer. It's a blue gel that's refreshing, moisturizing and more watery and runny than the moisturizing bomb, but it's only suitable for summer use.
Protect Moisture Barrier
A few weeks ago I messed up my moisture barrier and became super dehydrated. Skin felt tight and gross and started to break out a bit. I attributed to the new normal of quarantine from simply not getting any fresh air, but lets face it, I probably over-masked (because really what else are we doing in self isolation?) I realized I have very minimal repairing products, but thankfully I had these two in my travel bag. I quickly used the Lotus Rescue mask and my skin felt immediately nourished and rehydrated. I then followed with a face oil and FAB BarriAIR Moisturizer and used that consistently for the rest of the week and my skin was back to normal within days, i also kept the routine to a minimum.. didnt bother with toners, essences, double serums, just some nourishing face oils and this FAB moisturizer which, honestly, SO BOMB. I think its a beautifully unique and innovative product, theres literally pockets of air in the formula which I think contributes to the hydration and moisture process for the skin. Feels so refreshing. This combination for a 4-5 days had my skin back to normal and looking and feeling healthy and glowy again.
The Do’s and Don’ts for Oily, Acne Prone Skin
Knowing your skin type and skin condition is the first step to treating it. I personally have dehydrated yet oily acne prone skin. The right type of products in a routine can make a huge difference. *Disclaimer: I love all the products above except the Clinique toner (Dont use this please). I will explain below why things are good or bad for acne. Step 1: Cleanse Do - Use gel cleanser like the FARMACY - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser . The gel formula will deep cleanse the face without stripping. Don’t - Use a cream cleanser like the GEORGETTE KLINGER - Green Tea Cream Cleanser . This is more geared towards dry skin. It will cleanse and hydrate but won’t give you the deep cleanse oily/acne prone skin needs. Step 2: Treat Do - Use a product with salicylic acid like PAULA'S CHOICE - SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA LIQUID EXFOLIANT . Salicylic acid is oil soluble and will dive deep into your pores breaking up any sebum or debris. Don’t - Use something with detnatured alcohol like the CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion 3 . It may feel good at first but the alcohol is stripping your skin and does more harm than good. In the end your face will over compensate for the stripping effect and produce more oil. Step 3: Moisturize Do - Use a gel moisturizer like the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair BarriAIR Cream . I love this because it is free of a lot of skin irritants like fragrance and dyes. The gel formula won’t feel too heavy on the skin but will give you all the hydration benefits you need. Don’t- Use a heavy, cream moisturizer like the Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer . Heavy creams are more geared for dry skin. For oily skin it will just sit on top potentially clogging pores (plus I do believe this has some comedogenic ingredients). These are basic steps I’ve been using for a while to make my skin routine the best is can be for my skin concern. If you have any questions about any steps or products let me know below. 🖤 /*some products gifted

OLE HENRIKSEN - C-Rush Brightening Double Crème for a night cream, i use something a little heavier and more repairing to pair with my advanced night repair from the previous step. at the moment i have been using the first aid beauty ultra repair cream as my night cream. this has been working a treat when it comes to overnight repair of the skin! i have even noticed a difference in redness and blemishes. it’s a fantastic product for most dry, normal, combination people as well! FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream step 5 - eye cream 👁 at the moment, the product i have been loving for my day and night eye cream the it cosmetics confidence in an eye cream! this is a fab all rounder eye cream. it contains vitamin c and caffeine for an instant brightening effect and it also reduces bags under the eye too! it also contains anti-aging technology inside as well! the perfect eye cream for skincare newcomers! it Cosmetics - Confidence In An Eye Cream step 6 - lips 👄 final step to my routine! i use a lip balm! at the moment i’m loving the laneige lip glowy balm! it comes in a compact squeezy tube, which is super convenient. the product is really hydrating and tastes amazing. for dry parched lips, it’s one of a kind! definitely one of my favourite lip balms ever.

ESTĒE LAUDER-Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II Duo
Morning Routine for PIH & Oily Skin
I've finished some of these products up but this was what I've used to keep my skin clear and bright! 1. Kosmetic Immunity Enzyme Cleansing Powder - a gentle cleanser that leaves the skin feeling clean using enzymes to eat away at the dry skin. This is super gentle and goals up into a rich lather! I have a ton of cleansers but continue to reach for this often. 2. TOWER 28 - SOS Save.Our.Skin Daily Rescue Facial Spray is my secret weapon against breakouts. It's super simple mist made up of three ingredients - water, sodium chloride and hypochlorous acid. Hypochlorous acid heals the skin and fights bacteria, leaving you with clear happy skin! It smells a bit like pool water, which I actually don't mind since it reminds me of summer. 3. Dr. Brandt Dark Spots No More - claims to reduce the appearance of dark spots in 7 days using a blend of acids at 21%. This is a tiny bottle that retails for $68, which when compared to other treatments with similar ingredients is A LOT. I haven't noticed my dark spots improving any faster since incorporating this into my routine and won't repurchase. I have other products with the same ingredients, that do the same thing, contain .5 oz more product and are cheaper. 4. SUMMER FRIDAYS - CC Me Vitamin C Serum this is a great every day serum, but it's not a great vitamin c serum. It's called a "multitasking serum" and is supposed to brighten, smooth and reduce spots. I found this to really only hydrate and leave the skin looking healthy. I didn't notice a major improvement in dark spots which is what I want from a serum that totes vitamin c. This reminded me more of a multivitamin for the skin, than something that's supposed to address a specific concern. I actually would pick this up again if I was looking for something hydrating and just an all arounder, but definitely not if I'm looking specifically for a vit c. 5. VICHY - Minéral 89 Eyes Hyaluronic Acid Eye Gel Cream LOVE THIS! It's a gel eye cream that is hydrating, without being too heavy! My only concern with my under eye area is hydration so this is perfect. If your looking for something to help with dark circles or puffiness, this isn't it. 6. TATCHA - The Water Gel I really liked this when I first picked it up, it's lightweight and sinks right into the skin. This just slowly stopped being a favorite. I liked it but it didn't wow me. 🤷🏽♀️ 7. elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 aka my holy grail SPF. I love this stuff. It's great for sensitive, acne-prone skin and sinks in beautifully. It doesn't leave me oily and works sooo well underneath makeup. I actually don't need to use a primer over this if I'm going to wear makeup! Will always have this around!
SUMMER FRIDAYS-CC Me Vitamin C Serum
SKINCARE LINE-UP: RETINOL NIGHT
It’s retinol night! So these products I have grouped together to give me the best results with retinol and prevent any irritation! Background info: I have combination skin that is sometimes dehydrated. My skin is also very tolerant of active ingredients. SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel My go-to Hyaluronic Acid serum! It’s my favorite hydrating product because the Hyaluronic Acid seriously plumps up the skin and brings hydration to the surface of the skin. I apply a few drops of this on my palms and press into the skin. SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic with 15% L-ascorbic acid Vitamin C serum for skin My favorite Vitamin C/antioxidant serum! It brightens the skin, and boosts the performance of my sunscreen so I make sure to incorporate it into my routine every morning! This formula also includes L-ascorbic acid which is a rich antioxidant ingredient that neutralizes free radicals and protects against oxidative stressors, and Ferulic Acid which has similar benefits, enhances antioxidants and stabilizes the Vitamins C & E. SKINCEUTICALS - RETINOL 0.5 Retinol night cream Retinol! This night cream contains 0.5% pure retinol which helps to promote cell turnover, improves the appearance of lines, wrinkles, discoloration and pores, and reduces breakouts! This particular cream is formulated with a Soothing Complex that calms the skin with Bisabolol and Boswellia Serrata Extract which soothes and comforts the skin. I apply two pea-size amounts on my finger tips, rub them together and press into my skin (focusing on problem areas). VINTNER'S DAUGHTER - Active Botanical Serum This is a powerhouse serum full of botanical oils and extracts that really help the skin. There’s a full list of ingredients on their website but this serum basically heals, balances, fights free-radicals with antioxidants, strengthens with ceramides, nourishes with fatty acids and brightens with vitamins to renew, repair, protect and tone skin. Like what else could I ask for?! I use their push/press method to apply! PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster When my skin needs an additional boost I like to mix a tiny bit of this booster into my moisturizer (the next step). Azelaic Acid is amazing for gently exfoliating the skin, unclogging pores and refining skin’s surface. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi To lock in all the active ingredients in my toners and serums, I love this cream from Youth To The People because it feels thick and nourishing. The key ingredients in this cream include Squalane, Ashwagandha, and Fermented Reishi which together helps boost skin hydration, minimizes risk of clogged pores, reduces visible signs of fatigue and detoxifies and combats signs of aging.
PAULA'S CHOICE-10% Azelaic Acid Booster
SKINCARE LINE-UP: GOOD SKIN DAYS
This is my go-to skincare routine for days when my skin’s looking pretty good and doesn’t need much help! These are basically my staple products and contains both hydrating, active and protective products! Background info: I have combination skin that is sometimes dehydrated. My skin is also very tolerant of active ingredients. PAULA'S CHOICE - Clear Regular Strength Anti-Redness Exfoliating Solution This BHA exfoliant is a great gentle toner that contains 2% Salicylic Acid which helps to exfoliate the skin and keep breakouts at bay! I use this on a cotton pad because it allows me to gently remove all the dead skin cells with each swipe and reveal brighter skin! SKINCEUTICALS - Hydrating B5 Gel My go-to Hyaluronic Acid serum! It’s my favorite hydrating product because the Hyaluronic Acid seriously plumps up the skin and brings hydration to the surface of the skin. I apply a few drops of this on my palms and press into the skin. SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic with 15% L-ascorbic acid Vitamin C serum for skin My favorite Vitamin C/antioxidant serum! It brightens the skin, and boosts the performance of my sunscreen so I make sure to incorporate it into my routine every morning! This formula also includes L-ascorbic acid which is a rich antioxidant ingredient that neutralizes free radicals and protects against oxidative stressors, and Ferulic Acid which has similar benefits, enhances antioxidants and stabilizes the Vitamins C & E. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi To lock in all the active ingredients in my toners and serums, I love this cream from Youth To The People because it feels thick and nourishing. The key ingredients in this cream include Squalane, Ashwagandha, and Fermented Reishi which together helps boost skin hydration, minimizes risk of clogged pores, reduces visible signs of fatigue and detoxifies and combats signs of aging. SKINCEUTICALS - Physical Fusion Uv Defense SPF 50 One of the greatest sunscreens I’ve ever used. This is super lightweight and feels like nothing when you have it on the skin- it’s the only sunscreen I can get my boyfriend to wear! It has 100% mineral filters that provides UVA/UVB protection and adds a natural glow to the skin. This simple routine is my favorite for days when my skin looks like it doesn’t need too much help!
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi
Many people are wary of oils. I used to be too, I thought the same as everyone else with oily skin- this being: ‘I have oily skin, I don’t need ~more~ oil’. • But the wonderful thing about oils are that they don’t have to be comedogenic and they make a great occlusive or emollient. Some oils can even help with comedones such as the Luna shown above. • My quick overview on each product is below: • Luna sleeping night oil is a product I wouldn’t like to live without. It’s truly a game changer when it comes to calming acne and keeping my skin fresh. It’s possibly my favourite product from sundayriley (9/10) • The ceo glow from sundayriley has a beautiful fine texture and has the added benefits of turmeric and Vitamin C (THD Ascorbate) for brightening, no complaints here. (8/10) • The drunkelephant marula oil is a nice to have in my routine but I don’t think it’s a necessary. It’s hydrating and absorbs well but I don’t believe it’s a desert island must have product (7/10) • The same goes for The Ordinary marula oil. It’s thicker than the drunkelephant but they more or less work the same. I like to use this one on my hair as it can be too heavy for face- unless we’re talking facial massage which it would be good for. (6/10) • I really do like the koconoi hydrating face oil. It smells delicious and has such a fine texture. It’s made up of coconut oil, sunflower oil, moringa and vitamin E. I don’t find it to be pore clogging but I wouldn’t put it over acne. (7/10) • Overall I think oils are nice but I can take or leave them if they don’t have active ingredients that will give me amazing results.
The Ordinary-100% Cold Pressed Virgin Marula Oil
Drunk elephant brand spotlight!
The drunk elephant b hydra intensive hydration serum is like a cool drink of water for thirsty skin! This can be solutions for dryness, dullness, uneven texture, and uneven skin tone. The texture of this is a lightweight gel that can be mixed with any other oils or serums or can be used alone! I have been using this since May because I recieved it for my birthday and I use this product every time I do my skincare, basically every single day! This is my favorite serum and probably one of my favorite skincare products I have ever used! It is so hydrating for my dry skin, and didn’t break me out. This gave me amazing results in my skins dryness and I will never stop using it! It is a little more pricey but is 100% worth the money! It is $48 for 1.69oz which is a good amount The drunk elephant protini polypeptide moisturizer is a protein moisturizer that combines an unprecedented array and concentration of actives for improvement in the appearance of skins tone, texture, and firmness! It can be solutions for redness, loss of firmness and elasticity, dryness, and dullness and uneven texture. It is great for normal, and oily skin types! The texture of this moisturizer is a thick gel cream, that is very cooling on the skin. I really don’t like this moisturizer and especially for the price. It isn’t hydrating at all and makes my skin greasy. I purchased the littles set from drunk elephant that came with this, but will not be repurchasing! I would definitely not recommend this to others with dry or combo skin! It is not worth it at all, it is so pricey, it’s $68 for 1.69oz. The drunk elephant c tango eye cream is a great one to help moisturize my under eyes in the winter! I love using this at night because my eyes are so hydrated when I wake up the next morning! It is so thick and creamy and makes my under eyes so soft as well! The packaging is so cute and this mini size is great for travel! It is very pricy and sadly won’t be repurchasing because I have other eye creams that do the same things as this one and some that I even like better! Drunk elephant virgin marula facial oil! I love using this oil in my skincare routine so much! I love mixing this with all different Serums for a lot of hydration! I love mixing it with my b hydra serum and my tlc franboos serum from drunk elephant! I definitely see a difference in my skin when I use this! It is great for the winter months! The drunk elephant t.l.c framboos is a an AHA/BHA night serum that refined skin to reveal a smoother and more radiant complexion. It enhances the performance of other products by clearing the way for maximum absorption! It is a gel serum that resurfaces dull skin, gentle lifting dead skin cells away be dissolving the glue that holds them to the surface! It has done wonders for my skin and will forever be repurchasing! Drunk elephant is a brand that I have always been really interested in! I first found in from a friend who showed me all about it about 2 years ago! I immediately got there littles set that they had at the time and loved most of the products! I have now repurchased about 5 of there products in full size and will never stop using the b hydra, tlc, the marula oil! They have been some of my favorite products ever! I definitely recommend drunk elephant to anyone who has never heard and haven’t tried this brand at all, they have amazing products for all skin types!DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Antioxidant Face Oil DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C.
