“Honey” oil? 🤔👀
FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum FARMACY - Honey Grail Ultra-Hydrating Face Oil ⚡️my skin type: sensitive eczema and acne prone ⚡️what the product does: resurfaces skin & moisturizes ⚡️what makes it worth it: natural ingredients ⚡️ingredient highlights: buckwheat honey ⚡️what the experience is like: the glow serum is nice but the honey face oil is sticky and never seems to fully absorb. also i do think the face oil broke me out ⚡️in full transparency: i was sent these products as a gift. i didnt love the face oil but i think the glow serum is quite nice! give it a try if you like natural ingredients
🌍Eco friendly skincare packaging = the future
Glass packaging in skincare really is the wave when it comes to sustainability! Glass jars reduce the quantity of plastic waste created by the beauty industry, and I’m for it. I love repurposing glass jars to store other items like jewelry, homemade creams and candle wax! Something Youth to the People does that I find amazing is they sell a large bottle that you can refill smaller bottles with. My mini is now a travel must for me, and instead of purchasing again and again I just refill it! 🍀🌴☘️ I also think it’s an amazing cleanser so it’s a win-win.

Im posting an exfoliation series on my Instagram for those who’d like some more in depth product reviews ❤️ There are so many a few different ways to exfoliate and a plethora of products to help you do that. From scrubs to serums to toners to masks, it can become hard to choose which way of exfoliation is right for you. Too many products runs the risk of over-exfoliating and disrupting your moisture barrier, but finding the right routine can bring you smooth, glow skin 🤩 How many exfoliation products do you have and how often are you exfoliating 🔍 The answer can vary between people, but finding the right formula for you may take some time ✨ Will be diving into this topic in more detail in the coming posts .

Have you ever heard of Tansy Oil?
Skin Type- Currently turning Combo as the weather gets warmer Concerns- Hormonal Breakouts, Uneven Texture One of my favorite skincare ingredients is blue tansy oil. I find not a lot of skincare products use this and when my skin is TRULY on the verge of freaking the f out - whether it's hormonal or redness, my Herbivore Lapis is ALWAYS handy and takes control. I will use this as the last step in my skincare routine. I find that oils tend to work better after you moisturize and apply over. I've used this for over two years now. I'm not sure what YouTube influencer mentioned it, but it has definitely become a staple enough for me to purchase a full size. I do not use this every day, however Lapis usually makes her way to me every time I get my friendly female friend. I will make sure to use this and I truly find that it helps with any redness or breakouts I have going on. Lapis is high in Azulene, which is where this oil gets is blue color from naturally. Azulene helps to soothe dry irritated skin, reduce the appearance of redness and balance oily skin, so yes if you have oily skin, this OIL is actually good to use!
HERBIVORE-Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin
This is described as a lightweight oil that is deeply moisturizing and smooths fine lines and wrinkles. It includes ingredients such as buckwheat honey, sea buckthorn oil, and a blend of five flower oils. It also contains fractionated coconut oil, and Farmacy is careful to note that the oil has been tested by an independent lab and is noncomedogenic (meaning it won’t clog pores). I won this oil in a giveaway, and admittedly I was still very nervous to put it on my face because I’ve had issues with coconut oil causing acne before (those oils were not fractionated). I started by using a few drops of this on my hair, as Farmacy says can be done to tame flyaways. I’ve also used this on some spots of eczema on my arms, and it’s definitely helped moisturize them and keep the scaliness stress bay. Farmacy also says you can blend this with your foundation, but but since my foundation is already an oil, I haven’t tried that. I have since used this on my face a few times, and I’m happy to report that I haven’t experienced any breakouts! It’s very moisturizing. The texture is definitely a thick oil, much thicker than any I’ve ever used before, and it feels luxurious. It also smells like straight up honey, which is incredible. At the end of the day, I really like this product, but I’m not sure if I’ll purchase it once this one is empty. It’s definitely luxurious, and I like that it can be used on my hair, face, and body, but I tend to prefer squalane oils since my skin isn’t super dry. At $48 for 1oz, this is pricier than many oils, but it is unique. I would recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a soothing oil to target very dry skin.

clean beauty you need!
This BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil has been a lifesaver for me lately. It’s mega hydrating and insanely lightweight, and I want to share some information about it! + About Biossance + So this company actually started out with scientists who created an accessible cure for malaria. They were inspired to move into skincare & create products made with science and sustainability in mind. All of their products include squalane; the human body makes squalene (note the spelling). Over time, our bodies make less squalene. Squalane locks in weightless moisture, calms and protects, improves elasticity, and balances oil production without clogging pores. + Squalane and Vitamin C Rose Oil + This face oil claims to visible brighten, firm, and even skin tone. It’s very luxurious, and is suited best for dry to normal skin types, but I’m normal to oily and it’s been great for me! The key ingredients are: tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate (oil soluble vitamin c), squalane, and chips crystal oil (helps nurture). + My Thoughts + I’ve been using this for about 2.5 weeks, and I don’t think I want this out of my life! I use it in my AM routine (2-3 drops in my moisturizer) and as a last step (5-6 drops) at night. My skin tone is less red and more even, breakouts are calmed quickly and fade fast, and my skin is bouncy and also firm! It’s $72 for 1oz, which is SO expensive for me. I’m lucky this was a gift from the brand, but I will repurchase this when I empty it for sure. A little goes a long way, and it doesn’t make me greasy or oily, just glowy and hydrated!
BIOSSANCE-Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil
The Perfect Oil ✨
Skin Type: Combo/ Acne Prone / Sensitive Product: Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil Brand: Youth to the People Goals: To hydrate and add antioxidants and vitamins to skin with fast absorption I love this oil. Not only is it great by itself, but it plays well with others if I’m trying to thin a super thick moisturizer or overnight mask. It also works well under foundation/ makeup or mixed with it. This oil doesn’t clog my pores or break me out and I have very sensitive skin. It adds hydration and makes my skin really soft. It has squalane, omega fatty acids and Vitamin C to add glow. It also has a light fruity scent to it too. This oil retails for $44 but lasts a long time and a little goes a long way. If you’re looking for a reliable staple in your routine, this is it ☀️ Five stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE-Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil
Rose is generally in either water, oil, essence or cream and is known to provide hydration to the max, soothes the skin and is anti-inflammatory (hello pimples). I have been obsessed with rose and it’s delicate scent for as long as I can remember and adding it into my skincare is such a must! This beautiful oil doesn’t have a rose scent, but has all those beautiful properties with the bonus of vitamin c and squalane. Vitamin c is a powerful antioxidant that lightens, tightens and brightens the skin. Squalane is a natural derivative of the body’s squalene that is produced to hydrate and plump and soothe the skin. So it’s an added bonus oil to what your skin decreases producing over time. So this beautiful baby oil is the trifecta of skin goodness! She leaves me with an unmatched glow, the softest skin, and a lovely suppleness. I cannot get enough of her in my morning routine! BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil
