Amorepacific trials 💖✨🌺
My skin has never felt like this before!! Was my first reaction after trying all of these super amazing products together 😻😻😻 Honestly, I wish I could easily afford to include all of them in my routine (the essence alone goes from CA $125-$230 😓😿) But the honest truth is that as I was using them (they only lasted a couple of days and nights), I had a complete feeling of luxury enfold my face. The textures of all these products is amazing. The night mask though, has a faint scent of alcohol in it (which I’m guessing is a type of cosmetic alcohol ingredient), but everything else was just luxury layered over my skin. AMOREPACIFIC - Vintage Single Extract Essence This essence is very liquid, super fresh as you apply it, virtually no scent. AMOREPACIFIC - MOISTURE BOUND Rejuvenating Serum Super soft, very light lotion texture, mild and lovely scent, silky texture, absorbs immediately as it is applied. AMOREPACIFIC - MOISTURE BOUND Sleeping Recovery Mask Super light, gel-creme texture, very mild but delicious scent, super moisturizing, feels like my thirsty skin is having a cup of refreshing water on a hot day!!

Little but mighty!
Ok, first things first: This little guy has helped me well with my face mask acne. I already did a full review on it on my previous post, but I believe this little bottle deserves its own space here. The one thing I CANNOT stand about this product is the smell 😩😩😩 It’s super strong and definitely not pleasant. However, when it comes to its effectiveness, I must say it’s great. My skin does feel clean, like I’ve taken away a thin layer of extra whatever was there (sorry lol, it’s hard to explain). It burns a bit on my breakouts, but it has helped reduce them too. This product is NOT to be overdone, it’s a strong formula that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which can be damaging to the skin when not used properly. PLEASE use at night only, and REMEMBER to use SPF during the day as well as minimum sun exposure for the sake of your skin staying healthy and getting the most benefit out of AHA’s!! Kate Somerville - Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment

So, it’s been now over two weeks and these are the fab 5 that have helped my skin SO much from all my “facemask-acne”. Yes, it’s taken a little while, but I am happy that my breakouts are almost completely gone (except for a very stubborn one near my mouth). Please note: I do NOT recommend any of these products for anyone with sensitive skin, except for the face spray!! Ok, let’s go product by product now: NEOSTRATA - Foaming Glycolic Wash I LOVE this face wash! Everything from the super soft foam texture, the small amount you need, and the barely there scent is great about it. The 4 and not 5 stars?? If you overuse it (like I have 🤦🏻♀️) it’ll dry out your skin a bit. So, careful !! MARIO BADESCU - Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater This little spray is everything to me. The main reason: it does NOT have any alcohol in it and therefore doesn’t dry my skin out. I like to use it as a “toner” in between my wash/treatments/moisturizer, but when I need a bit of hydration through the day, I just do a couple of sprays 😊 Kate Somerville - Liquid ExfoliKate Triple Acid Resurfacing Treatment Ok, first things first: the one thing I CANNOT stand about this product is the smell 😩😩😩 It’s super strong and definitely not pleasant. However, when it comes to its effectiveness, I must say it’s great. My skin does feel clean, like I’ve taken away a thin layer of extra whatever was there (sorry lol, it’s hard to explain). It burns a bit on my breakouts, but it has helped reduce them too. Once again, another product NOT to be overdone, it’s a strong formula that contains Alpha Hydroxy Acid, which can be damaging to the skin when not used properly. PLEASE use at night only, and REMEMBER to use SPF during the day as well as minimum sun exposure for the sake of your skin staying healthy and getting the most benefit out of AHA’s!! NEOSTRATA - Acne Clarifying Solution This solution right here is bomb! Yes, I said it. Has to be the best acne solution I’ve ever used. It does work great for my skin. I only dab a saturated cotton pad where I need it (breakouts mostly and oily parts of my face). It burns my breakouts, yes, I literally DO feel the burn lol, which it also means it’s working, right? 🤔 It’s also helped with my redness and the breakout bumps minimize noticeably! And last, but not least MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion Yes, another cult fave that I HAD to try myself lol. I think it’s effective and it does a good work by drying out breakouts (or anything that’s a pustule or such). My only complaint is that it takes a while to see the results. Maybe I was expecting it to be one of those “overnight miracle” products, but it just isn’t. It’s also recommended to be applied and left overnight, which I did, but in the morning my ugly little bumps were still there, just in the slow process of going away...

My true favorite 🤩
I’ve been using this makeup setting mist for the longest time now. I’ve tried several brands, formulations, etc. And for some reason, I just keep going back to this OG 🥰 It’s super refreshing, has a barely there, almost non-existent scent, and it sure DOES make my makeup stay and last for a while! It’s not the least or the most expensive, but I feel like you can splurge a bit every once in a while as long as it’s a justified good product 😉 smashbox - Photo Finish Primer Water

My face after a bit over a week
So, this is what I’m looking like after using all of these products RELIGIOUSLY, DAY and NIGHT (as per their own directions respectively). I honestly don’t know what else to do. My horrid facemask-breakouts have definitely improved, yes, but after a bit over a week I would expect them to be completely gone! Sadly, there’s still bits of them here and there, still visible AND some even painful 😥😪😭😩 Especially the one on the left side of my mouth keeps going and coming back. Some of the products I feel have helped me, but I guess not all of them are as effective...

Primer dupes ✨
These primers are practically identical 😮 The nice thing here is that you can get the same Tatcha silk canvas results for just $8 buying the one from e.l.f. - Poreless Putty Primer The truth is that both products last a long time since you require a small amount. I think I would really continue to buy Tatcha's ($52), I am very visual and I love the packaging and that it comes with a spatula 😬 and I rarely wear makeup, so this products last me forever. Something that I found interesting is that TATCHA - The Silk Canvas Protective Primer recommend using it with or without makeup 😱 However, both products give the same long-lasting makeup effect and blur the pores, so I think both are fine and it will depend on how much you want to invest in a primer.

Favorite Primer - MARC JACOBS UNDER(COVER)
MARC JACOBS - Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer in 30 INVISIBLE WHAT IT IS? Face Primer WHAT IS DOES: Makes you makeup last longer. Smooths skin while also hydrating and nourishing. Ideal for normal to dry skin. TEXTURE/CONSISTENCY: Lightweight gel-cream consistency. White color. OVERALL THOUGHTS: I have dry skin and I have to wear primer every single time I wear foundation otherwise it would look dry, cakey and just not good. That’s why I looove this primer. It’s hydrating, doesn’t pill under foundation and makes my makeup last all day. It’s lightweight, doesn’t have strong scent and it just works perfectly for my dry skin. This is my absolute favorite primer!! WHY I LIKE/DISLIKE IT: I love how lightweight and hydrating it is. It feels amazing on my dry skin. WOULD I RECOMMEND IT ? If you have dry skin DEFINITELY give this one a try. It’s amazing!!! IS IT WORTH IT? 1oz/ 30ml/ $45 It’s on the pricier side but well worth it. I wasn’t able to find cheaper dupe so far.

PRIMER- PORES WHO?
The Primer that broke the internet⚡️ @elfcosmetics. Ft: Luminous Poreless Putty & Poreless Putty. ——————————————- So for the last few months I’ve been going store to store in Winnipeg looking for this primer, NO luck. So I finally decided I needed to make an order online to try these babies out. .✨ My first impression: Amazing! ⚡️. I love the luminous putty. To me it doesn’t chunk up under my foundation and gives me the perfect amount of glow. I did find it’s not as pore blurring as the original but still a new favourite. It has a buttery like texture which feels amazing on the skin. Sheer - poreless putty. I really like how thin and smooth it goes in your skin. This primer is more blurring. This girl needs that, I got some larger pores I want to hide. I really was surprised how amazing my foundation laid on top of it. It gave my skin the perfect blank canvas I need. Overall this is thinner in texture as you can see from my swatches but that doesn’t bug me. Feels light on the skin, does it’s job. ——————————————- Have you tried this line of Primers? If not, what’s your go-to? Let me know your thoughts ⬇️
