Better than Cerave???
Vichy’s 3 in 1 One Step Cleanser for sensitive skin is a cleansing milk that also tones and removes eye makeup. This particular cleanser also hydrated and leaves your skin baby smooth... I went into my local shoppers drug mart to find my holy grail Cerave Hydrating Cleanser was all sold out and I had to get something because they were out everywhere... covids new trend of skin cleaning I guess? But boy am I ever glad I asked for help and an alternative!!! I have never had my face feel so supple and soft after a wash, the Cerave does do that but even this morning my face is still the same from the night before... BABY SMOOTH😍😍😍😍 I paid $14.97 on sale for 200ml and a little goes a long way! A great alternative for double cleansing followed with an oil or foaming cleanser! Try it out and let me know!!!

Natural Rose Quartz Gua Sha Stones
Refer to previous post for a little watch!!!🥰🥰🥰 Gua Sha is a massage/scraping technique that is typically founded in Chinese medicine. Gua Sha stones are typically made out of natural rose quartz and jade stone which both have heeling and self love and care properties inside. This facial massage technique increases circulation in face, neck and body while also relieving the everyday tension and stress that builds in our facial muscles. Gua Sha can also be used for lymphatic drainage in the chin and neck. Gua Sha massage tools also open up the micro channels founded in our skins layers which allows for better penetration of facial oils and serums. What tool do I use for what region of my face? Left: Under Eye, Cheeks, Jaw, Forehead, Chest, Neck Middle: Nose, Eyebrow, Jaw, Cheek, Neck Left: Jaw, Cheek, Neck, Under Eye, Nose, Forehead

I stumbled across Gua Sha about a couple of years a go and thought it was yet again some silly trend that we all on jump on... boy I was wrong... since following chinese acupuncturists, aestheticians and holistic skin care specialists I have become truly inspired to start my own Gua Sha journey! @Looloolentil and @noyskincare on insta and tik tok have truly taught me how to do this properly. Go check out their informative videos if you want to start this journey too! Make sure to clean your skin and tools first and use a facial oil or serum to help glide the tool! Place in fridge for 10 minutes and it becomes a facial treatment😍😍Let’s keep our skin young and fresh!😍😍😍.

It serves as an amazing anti-oxidant and will brighten the skin and build collagen over time. Use this in the AM after cleansing. elta md SKINCARE - UV Clear Broad Spectrum SPF 46 You all know this is one of my favorite products of all time. It goes on without a white cast and contains niacinamide, which is amazing for acne and rosacea-prone skin. CeraVe - Resurfacing Retinol Serum Retinoids are the cornerstone of my skincare routine. They have anti-aging and anti-acne benefits. They fade dark spots and improve skin texture. This product by ceraVe is a perfect starter retinoid because it contains an encapsulated form of retinoid and licorice, which helps to calm down inflammation and fade hyperpigmentation. Use this at night after cleansing. Avoid this if pregnant or breastfeeding! SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment This is one of the best exfoliants on the market. It contains lactic acid, one of the most gentle and effective alpha-hydroxy acids you can use in your skincare routine. It also contains licorice, which helps to fade dark spots and calm redness. This is best used 1-2x a week at night. Avoid using it on the same nights as your retinol.

SUNDAY RILEY-Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment
Bubbling Face Mask?!
Oh K! - Exfoliate & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Face Mask If you want to switch your face mask up and have some fun.... this is a mask for you! It BUBBLES!!! Don’t worry the mask is just reacting with the oxygen in the air and forming these tiny bubbles that become very sudsy after 10-15 mins on your face. 10mins is truly enough with this sheet mask, the bubbles get big. The cleansing bubbles in the mask react with the sheet to gently exfoliate dead skin, leaving you with a brighter complexion. - In full honesty I didn’t notice much exfoliation after but my skin felt so soft after, followed by my oils and serums and the Chok Chok Soothing Eye mask which I rate 10/10 in my last post! Go check out it’s beauty😍 This is a great mask to do with your girlfriends! Grab a glass and relax🍷
Oh K!-Exfoliate & Cleanse Bubble Sheet Face Mask
after the past month that has been quite frankly traumatic, I’ve had a well needed rest... and then some! Skin wise - after spending 6 months getting over post-pill hair loss, acne and irregular cycles, I am back on the pill. Don’t. Even. Ask. Loooool 🙈 With that and the hormonal fluctuations from this month, my chin area has totally erupted. Trying to keep things extremely simple whilst my hormones level out... again! This is my current morning routine with the exception of the AOX serum, which I alternative with acaderma Invisible Shield. . ✔️ ISClinical Cleansing Complex as a morning cleanse. Currently using this daily with the hot weather to prevent congestion. My favourite low pH gel cleanser! . ✔️ A mixture of PaulasChoice Antioxidant Pore Purifier with a tiny scoop of #TheOrdinary L-AA Powder. I’ve tried the Pore Purifier Serum in the past and wasn’t overly impressed at the time, but the 0.5% Salicylic Acid has been a great addition since I cannot exfoliate frequently with using Differin. I’ve noticed a reduction of blackheads on my nose with daily use. Not mind-blowing r.e results, but the texture is stunning in these warmer months and it really does aid in keeping congestion at bay. I also find it works a great at reducing redness. I’m finding my feet with Deciem again and thoroughly enjoying this powder - I’ll talk more about this soon as I think it warrants its own post. . ✔️ Treat the eye area with TheOrdinary Caffeine Solution which is one of the best products I’ve tried for puffy eyes. Extremely lightweight (if you have dry eyes, you’d need to layer with a eye cream) and provides instant gratification. I am so picky with eye products and I’ve tried so many at all price ranges, it’s almost funny that my favourites are this one (and I think it’s one of the best products in the TO line) that’s £5.80 and the cerave Eye Cream that’s £11. Can’t beat it. . ✔️ Finish with my favourite SPF #KraveBeauty The Beet Shield. Need to stock up ASAP on this one.
The Ordinary-Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
Overnight Hydro boost
Elf is the on the budget BFF. I was in the need of a night cream and randomly picked this one up. Best decision ever! This lightweight formula is not only super clean from harsh chemicals but also provides that huge gulp of water your skin needs every night to help it heal. This product is super smooth and a little goes a long way. I have almost run out and I’ve had the jar for months! And use it every night! It’s lightweight enough to use as a day cream and has very little smell if any at all. One of my favorites and will probably buy a new jar soon.
e.l.f.-Nourishing Night Cream
Huxley Secret of Sahara: Oil Essence 🌵✨ A lightweight serum formulated with 61% Organic Sahara Cactus Oil, Quinoa, and Acai Berry which help in providing moisture and nourishment to the skin. It is free of parabens, synthetic dyes and mineral oils. 〰️ I apply this after cleansing and toning and upon application my skin feels instantly supple and radiant. I really enjoy using this one and it’s enough for my oily-normal skin. I saw some with dry skin that didn’t get much from this product - which is really unfortunate. 😓 Some were thrown off by its scent - I, on the other hand, love it! 💖 I think it’s relaxing and I love the texture and how it glides onto the skin without using a lot of its product. It also absorbs very quickly and you know how much I love products that doesn’t give you that greasy feeling. ☺️ One thing I hate about this product is the dropper but I’m doing this thing where I’m getting the serum on the sides of the dropper. If that makes sense.. I’m really saving every drop of it because it’s quite expensive. I would repurchase someday! I really want to try the other variants as well. 🤔 Rating it a 4/5 💖
