I was so surprised with this product! I actually love it. Once you get past the slimy texture it’s such a great product! There’s not a HEAP of science behind this wonder ingredient but it definitely offers and gives a lot! I’m happy with it! My scarring is looking great!

COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All In One Cream
COSRX - Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream I have the COSRX Advanced Snail Essence and that gives me so much moisture I thought I’d pick this up too. I love it! My face feels so much more hydrated and none of the ingredients irritate my skin, which is great! I use this right before I use my face oils and it doesn’t pill or anything. I 100% recommend this! “COSRX Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream is a satiny, lightweight cream formulated with 92% snail mucin and hyaluronic acid to help promote healthy skin repair, replenish hydration levels, soften rough skin, and illuminate tired complexions.

Hey guys this is my first post. Most of these products I bought after reading reviews and learning how to read ingredient lists on here. I use YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser cleanser with an electric silicone face brush. This can be a little hard to fully rinse off but, my skin is soft and glows after. Then I use HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Spray to tone and prepare for my first essenceHADALABO - Gokujyun Premium Lotion which is very moisturizing and slimy. I use this for both the moisture and the niacinamide. I wait until it is fully dry the spritz more rose water and follow up with CosRx snail mucin ferment essenceCOSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence . After that I will either add this combo: The Ordinary - Retinol 0.5% in Squalane and then belif - Aqua Bomb Sleeping Mask or the CosRx snail all in one cream COSRX - Advanced Snail 92 All in One Cream to keep this oil on my skin and not my pillow lol Or go straight to Embryolisse - Lait Crème Concentré this is thick and I will either use it as a moisturizer or load it on as a sleeping mask. I mainly do skincare at night and I know that I should add a vitamin C and sunscreen during the day but, I haven’t found any moisturizing ones that I like yet/that are simple enough for me to slap on and give adequate protection. Please let me know your thoughts 😊

these are just 2 products in my current routine but these are my ride or dies! starting with the PACIfICA - Cosmic Hemp Balancing Face Wash im on my 2nd bottle of this stuff! it's not drying at all, smells nice and leaves my face feeling clean but not stripped. it's 10 dollars which isn't bad! it contains hemp seed oil which I have found to help keep my skin soft. Fourth Ray - Strawberry Face Milk I also have the coconut one! from colourpop's skin care line, fourth ray beauty, the face milks are perfect for me, as an oily skinned gal, for lightweight moisture that's super effective! it's winter where I am and these usually do the trick! I also keep my skin super hydrated to begin with so that may help so keep that in mind. I got these from ulta, they cost $14 each but I got a sale for buy one get one 40% off. I'm definitely going to repurchase these little gems 💎 when I run out! next up for skin care review... currently trying COSRX - 2 in 1 Poreless Power Liquid and COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence so I will update on that in about 2 weeks or so! thanks for reading. you're beautiful 😍 have a great day 😘
🧼Rebuilding My Moisture Barrier💧🤍
It’s always a balancing act when it comes from skincare. 😅 at least for me! Haha 💧I’ve had adult acne and have acne-primed skin, so when it comes to finding the right products that don’t over-strip my skin but also keep my breakouts & acne under control...you could say it’s been a journey! 💧If you saw one of my recent posts about my retinol breakout 😪 I’m back to familiar territory aka flaky, dry, inflamed skin aka my moisture barrier is damaged. And with the colder months, I’ve been spending more time trying to repair it. 💧These are some of the products that have been helping me: 🧴COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence : I recently purchased this essence and have really loved the effects. I use it after cleansing and find that it helps when I use it when my skin is still damp! It’s made my skin so soft & since it’s an essence, it allows for my other products to penetrate deeper into my skin. I will say, for those who are not really familiar with essences (especially this one), many often have a gel-like texture that isn’t super typical in some products (slightly sticky & for this one, slimy). 🧴CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin : my tried and true!!! I’ve been layering this product on, especially at night after the essence. Day or night, this lotion is a must-have in my book. It doesn’t feel oily on my skin and the hyalauronic acid is such a bonus since this an ingredient that helps draw in moisture into the skin. 🧴Krave - The Beet Shield : WORTH THE HYPE! Love Krave Beauty and I LOVE the Beet Shield. The texture is amazing, super light and dried down pretty quickly without a white cast. It makes me WANT to put on sunscreen and not just feel like I NEED to. 〰️After cutting back on the steps in my routine, and feeling& seeing results, I’ve been reintroducing these products for gentler exfoliation!〰️ 🧼CLARISMA - Cali Dreaming Cream Daily Moisturizer : the Clarisma moisturizer is super light and something I’ll typically wear during the day. It’s gentle and I like to wear it on days I’m inside especially since it is a lighter moisturizer and when I’m outside in the cold, I prefer something heavier. 🧼CLARISMA - Malibu Blush Exfoliating Scrub : the most gentle exfoliator! The exfoliating scrub isn’t at all like other physical exfoliants. The Luffa fruit breaks down when you use it so no micro tears with this one. The enzymes used also provide such a gentler exfoliation unlike most harsh acids. It also doesn’t cause hyperpigmentation, which I’ve experienced in the past with acids. 🏹Let me know what’s helped you with repairing or protecting your moisture barrier! 🤍
I’ll be talking about the pyunkangyul Moisture Set. Just to give you guys an idea about the brand, Pyunkang Yul is made by Korea’s Pyunkang Oriental Medicinal Clinic. They focus on safeguarding the skin by simplifying their ingredients list and eliminating unessential substances that are just there for texture or scent. - Pyungkang Yul Moisture Serum Pyungkang Yul Essence Toner Pyungkang Yul Oil Pyungkang Yul Moisture Cream - >Moisture Serum :This lotion-like serum has just the perfect combination of coptis japonica root extract and oilve oil to help your skin find it’s optimal balance of moisture for a healthy complexion. I use this in the morning when I don’t feel like putting anything too heavy for the day. >Essence Toner :A gel type toner that quickly absorbs into the skin. No water is present in the ingrediens list of this product so it’s full of all the goodness that your skin needs like 91% milk vecht root extract. It was love at first pat for me with this product, definitely my HG toner so far. >Oil :This lightweight oil provides antioxidant protection while keeping your skin radiant. Quick-absorbing as well so it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy. You can also use this on parts of your body where it’s dry or for your hair. >Moisture Cream :A mighty effective daily moisturizer for all skin types, the creamy texture goes on with ease providing a soft and supple finish without feeling sticky.
COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence Retails for 21 USD One of my og kbeauty products ⭐️ x this is great for all skin types and is meant to help repair the skin regarding dry patches, acne breakouts, provide hydration and more. It’s also fragrance free. x texture is a sticky translucent substance, it sinks into the skin quite nice. x I’ve gone through about 3-4 bottles of this and I love it still to this day. This has always made my face feel so supple and glowy. I used to use it twice a day, but have since switched to once a day usually in the evening. at first I was stumped by the sticky texture of it but eventually got used to it. I pat it into my skin and my skin drinks it right up. It does help my face look more plump, is soothing and has helped with providing hydration and a healthy glow. x I know some people have broken out from this because everyone’s skin is so different. I would recommend this to anyone though and just suggest To patch test in stores! Many stores do carry this. Again, I know everyone’s skin will react differently to this but I adore this and it holds a special place in my heart and I think it’s such a good, fairly priced product. x because of my long use of this, my continuously good results and the budget friendlyness of this, I give it a 5/5.
COSRX-Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence
This product.....what can I say. An essence is not essential to your routine but if you are looking for some extra hydration, this stuff will do for a great price. It’s only 23 dollars and you might be able to find it cheaper outside of Ulta. Cos rx is a Korean skin care brand and they are really big on essences. It’s made from 96% snail mucin. I try not to think about it actually because it’s so slimy but it absorbs into my skin like a dream. It fits into my routine wonderfully. I have combo oily normal skin but it can be used for any skin type I think. I’m not sure about sensitive skin though honestly.

Korean Beauty Cosrx Snail Mucin Essence
COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence K-beauty Cosrx Snail Mucin Essence This is my favorite essence in the world currently!! This is a powerful hydrating essence filled with 96% snail mucin which is restoring and hydrating for the skin. This is a gooey texture which I know some people cannot get past. regardless, this is going to prep you for your hydrating products and those that follow your routine to really help sink into the skin better. It’s so important to pretty your skin and make sure it’s not dry when using hydrating serums and products so they can work their magic. This is perfect for that! I don’t find it has much scent - just sticky!! My overall experience with this phenomenal. At first the texture was iffy for me as it was really stringy and gooey. I have learned now to rub it into my hands and then gently pat it onto my skin. This has become a staple 2x a day ever freaking day! I use this after my toner or actives that I apply and sometimes I even use a few layers. I have noticed a HUGE difference in my skin just after a few months. The winter weather is wrecking havoc on my skin and this has help it stay in check so well. I can under stand that some can’t get past the texture or the snail mucin but if you can - this product will actually change your skin. also - it’s only $21 bucks which I find is a great steal!!! I would recommend this to anybody 100%!

AM routine for sensitive oily skin
✨My AM routine for sensitive oily skin✨ I usually take a simple route for my morning routines as I’m mostly focused on hydrating, soothing, and protecting my skin. ▶️ SeSPRING - Cleanse It Out Gel Cleanser - gentle daily gel cleanser formulated with camellia and lotus extracts to effectively cleanse the skin of all impurities without disrupting it’s moisture barrier. A wonderful morning cleanser to help cleanse my skin of all the oils and dirt I accumulated overnight. ▶️ ISNtree - Green Tea Fresh Toner - lightweight and refreshing toner that contains 80% green tea extract to revitalize the skin. I love the hydration this provides as well as the sebum regulating properties which is great for anyone with oily skin. Green tea also has antibacterial benefits to help prevent acne. ▶️ BE PLAIN - Cicaful Ampoule - soothing and hydrating ampoule that contains a whooping 84% of concentrated centella asiatica to help fortify the skin barrier. This instantly hydrated and reduces any redness on my skin. Great for when I’m dealing with inflamed acne breakouts. ▶️ NATURIUM - Vitamin C Complex Serum - gel textured brightening treatment serum containing a complex made up of encapsulated l-ascorbic acid, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, and bioactive fruit blend. This has been helping to keep my complexion bright and even while also providing antioxidant benefits. Pairs well with any spf. ▶️ SeSPRING - So Rich Hydrating Gel - medium weight cream that utilizes camellia and lotus extracts to provide intense hydration to the skin. I only need a small amount of this to keep my skin hydrated all day long. Does leave a more dewy finish though. ▶️ SKIN AQUA - UV Super Moisture Gel SPF 50+ PA++++ - lightweight gel textured chemical based sunscreen that provides strong sun protection. Such a great sunscreen for oily skin types. Doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and dries down to skin finish that has a slight sheen. Spot anything here that’s already in your own routine?
BE PLAIN-Cicaful Ampoule
I’ve been seeing great purito reviews around & couldn’t wait to try them! They are a Korean brand & use EWG Green Level ingredients. These are both amazing but I’m on a pretty strict routine & get the most benefit & use out of the toner. Sometimes I’ll use cleansers or acid treatments (baby facial) that have an acidic ph & to balance my skin back out I’ve been patting in this toner. It’s amazing! Very hydrating & calming! I have been so impressed with every Korean brand I’ve used so far! Amazing! There is NOTHING irritating or drying about it & hydrates well! Toner is in heavy rotation! TONER • ph balance 5.5 • 10% centella asiatic extract • calming & soothing • suitable for sensitive skin • smooths skin • panthenol & hyaluronic acid First impressions on the serum was great! I loved it! It gave me even toned skin & toned down A LOT of redness. I woke up with smooth soft skin! These products are affordable & can be found on Amazon as well :) yay for amazon! GREEN LEVEL SERUM • 49% centella • 3% niacinamide • protects from the environment • reinforcement of skin barrier • helps stimulate collagen • no preservatives so best to store in the fridge • no alcohol

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
