It took me long enough to appreciate the beauty of this exfoliating acid from Deciem . I stopped using it during those months that my skin is at its worst because it stings like hell. It was an impulse buy without even researching about it. . 🍇 So when my skin got a little better which is only recently. I started using this again and was surprised that it no longer stings. It has an after-use glow effect and smoothens my skin. As per the lightening effect, I didn't see much effect JUST YET because I only use it once a week alternately with my other exfoliants. I am thrilled to really see what more it can do. . 🍇 Important Note : This acid is highly concentrated and not for everyone especially with extra sensitive skin. Do not use it if you have active break outs or suffering from severe acne. Do not leave it for more than 10 minutes or it might burn your skin. . Are you also planning to try this? I suggest you do 😉

Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines pt. 4
Hey ya’ll! In part 4 of Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines we’re reviewing @Raks and @juliachristine’s skincare routines. Starting with @Rakswho reached out to me via Cherie message because she started skincare about a year ago because of her upcoming wedding. She starts by cleansing with theThursday Plantation - Tea Tree Face Wash Foam which costs $8.99 for 5.1 fl oz. This cleanser is very basic. It has tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil. My issue is with the eucalyptus oil, which is a very irritating essential oil right up there with lemon oil and peppermint oil. If this doesn’t irritate your skin then it’s a great cleanser, but I can’t recommend it to those with sensitive skin. Then she goes in with 4 serums. First is thepura d'or - 20% Vitamin C Serum which costs $14.99 for 4 fl oz. This is a really good serum. It has aloe vera juice, glycerin, jojoba oil, and argan oil which are hydrating ingredients, and then it has hylaronic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C. I love it! Then she uses#The Ordinary - Nicinamide Serum[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $5.90 for 1 fl oz. We’ve talked a lot about this serum, it’s very good. Next is the#Tree Of Life - Hylaronic acid serum[products]#[TwoStars] which costs $10.95 for 1 fl oz. I don’t like this serum. It started off good with hylaronic acid, aloe vera juice, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, but it contains way too many Essential oils and irritating extracts. And her final serum is theSkinMedica - LYTERA 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum which costs $130.90 for 2 fl oz, which is very expensive. This is not worth the price. It has nicinamide and glycerin, and then some not very researched acids. I don’t recommend continuing use of this serum. Then to moisturize she goes in with theOLAY - Regenerist Regenerating Day Cream which costs $29.99 for 1.7 fl oz. I don’t like this moisturizer. Let’s start with some positives. It has nicinamide, glycerin, and Vitamin B3. Now it has a lot of bad ingredients also. It has Sodium Laureth Sulfate, which is a harsh cleansing agent, as well as fragrance being the 6th ingredient. The she uses a Neutrogena sunscreen, and occasionally usesThe Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which costs $7.20 for 1 fl oz. This is a great exfoliant. I think @Raks is using too many serums. I would stick to only the Pura D’or and The Ordinary serum, and ditch the other two. Keep the cleanser, and maybe try a different moisturizer. You asked for mineral sunscreen reccomendations for dark skin tones that don’t have a white cast, so I got you girl! I have light skin, but I did some research and I’d recommend the#First Aid Beauty - Weightless Mineral SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $34 for 1.5 fl oz, and the #Biossance - Squalane Zinc Sheer SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $30 for 1.7 fl oz. Both of these have minimal white cast, and Skincare by Hyram recommends them. Next is @juliachristine’s night routine. She starts off by cleansing with the #Vanicream - Unscented Gentle Cleanser[products]#[ThreeStars] witch costs $8.99 for 8 fl oz. This a nice basic cleanser with glycerin. Next she uses the#OBAGI - Tretinoin 0.025% Cream[products]#[TwoStars] which costs $84 for .7 fl oz. This cream has tretinoin which is a Vitamin A derivative which can treat acne, as well as retinol which also Vitamin A. I don’t think it’s worth the price, but it’s okay. Next she uses the #The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%[products]#[FourStars] which costs $7.99 for 1 fl oz. Along with azelaic acid, it has dimethicone which is a great moisturizer for dry skin. Next she uses theCeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin which costs $17.99 for 15 fl oz. Y’all know I love this product! Finally she finishes off with theVERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream witch costs $17.99 for .5 fl oz. Eye cream is definitely not necessary but this one is great! It has glycerin, algae extract, and olive oil which are hydrating, along with shea butter and a blend of peptides which can help firm the skin and increase collagen production which can help reduce fine lines around the eyes. Overall @juliachristine your routine looks great! That’s it for this post please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment your opinions on these products, and follow me for similar content. Upcoming posts include a 1 month Curology review and unnecessary skincare steps you don’t need. -Mae

Loving this chemical peel!
Loving this chemical peel!
Am I the only one who went out and bought this because of Tik Tok? I sure hope not🤦🏼‍♀️ - The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution is a great chemical exfoliant if you’re looking for something deep exfoliating on a budget! The AHA’s work on that topmost layer of skin for a smoother & brighter look and the BHA’s help with pore congestion. So this mask pretty much does it all. You’re only supposed to use it at most twice a week and be sure to not leave it on for over ten minutes. Thats how much power this mask has! - At first I wasn’t too sure about it (and yes it does burn at first) but after I tried it for the second time I noticed how much smoother and brighter my complexion already was. For being such a good price I was shocked! It also has helped a lot with a few small scars I had on my face. Definitely wouldn’t use on sensitive skin.

The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
Finally tried this hyped up peeling solution
Finally tried this hyped up peeling solution
This has been a mask that has been so hyped that I had to purchase it and try it for myself. I received this in the mail about a month ago and I wanted to give it a really good try before giving my thoughts. I was so excited to get the peeling solution in and then when I did receive it I will admit I was a little timid because of all the burning sensation talk. The day I decided to use this I cleansed my face and then used a super mild toner to make sure all residue was removed. I did not use and would not recommend using any kind of face scrub or exfoliating product the day of using the peeling solution. I am 45, combo skin, some fine lines, pores and a little texture. I opened the solution and the smell is not appealing but it’s not horrible. I proceeded to apply and it was not bad at all and I kind of quickly put it on as 10 min is suggested time and I wanted to get the full 10 min everywhere on my face. Not long after the this is not all that bad came a tingle, it did get stronger and it did sting. I would not say it burned but I also don’t have sensitive skin. I would definitely say if you have sensitive skin go light and cut time in half. I could definitely see it being more of a burn with sensitive skin. I have used the mask 5 times now and I am loving it more and more each time. I have noticed shrinking of pores and a smoother complexion. I use this at night as I use a heavier moisturizer at nighttime verses daytime. I do suggest a good heavy moisturizer after use. Don’t go past the 10 min mark. 10 min is plenty of time for this mask to work it’s magic. Make sure to not be in direct sunlight after use and wear sunscreen. I am now ready to purchase another bottle and more from TO The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

A REPURCHASE ALWAYS 🥰
A REPURCHASE ALWAYS 🥰
the ordinary’s BHA + AHA peeling solution is trending like craaaazy because of its visible results. it helps with skin texture, clogged pores, hyperpigmentation, dull skin, & skin renewal. use for 10 mins 👉🏻 noticeable results after a few uses! this chemical exfoliate markets for $7.20. many people report of needing to remove it before the 10 minute timer ends because of how badly it may hurt (this is due to the active ingredients of beta hydroxy acid & alpha hydroxy acid). 🌟 BEST WAY TO USE: since it is such a strong solution, i recommend using this once a week. it’s a combined formula of 32% (which is pretty strong) & using this too much may cause severe irritation. use during the PM! it’s recommended to use SPF after any acid usage. this is to help protect your skin’s barrier from UV rays which may potentially increase the severity of irritation on your skin; thus, use this stuff in PM, use SPF in AM. 🌟 WORTH IT? I’ve been using this product for a few months now and have only started consistently (key word!) using it for 2 weeks (once a week). I’ve noticed my skin texture on my left cheek has reduced DRAMATICALLY but i still have yet to see any drastic results until i use it once a week for the next month. i believe it’s a product worth the hype. $7.20 for active ingredients is WORTH YOUR COIN if you know how to use active ingredients properly! 👽 **for those with sensitive skin, take precaution around active ingredients. they can be super beneficial for you if you understand the amount your skin can tolerate. too much can cause too much damage that may be irreparable! as always, consult a professional, queen! 🤠💗 The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
The Ordinary’s AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution has gained so much hype the past couple of months. I caved in an decided to buy it. This product is $7.20 and totally worth it! - This is a 10 minute exfoliating facial that uses a combination of alpha hydroxy acid and beta hydroxy acid to help with the look of blemishes and smooths the look of skin texture. Glycolic acid and lactic acid is going to exfoliate the outer layer of the skin, while salicylic acid is going to exfoliate deep inside the pores to reduce congestion. - This product is going to work for all skin types and people who are struggling with blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles dullness and uneven skin texture. - I have used this product 3 times. The first time I used it I left it on for 6 minutes because I don’t usual use too many strong acids like this. When it was on my skin it didn’t burn or tingle like people said so I didn’t know if it was even working. Then after I washed it off my skin felt so soft and had a natural glow. The second and third time using it I left it on for 10 minutes and it still didn’t burn or tingle so maybe my skin just isn’t very sensitive. After using it my skin once again felt very soft and I’m starting to notice less and less blackheads on my nose. I truly believe in this product and recommend it. - Please be very cautious while using this product. This is pure acid that you are putting on your skin. Make sure you aren’t using it more then once and week and for only 10 minutes. If using this in the morning USE SPF and hydrate your skin. If using this at night make sure to really hydrate your skin and to not use any other strong acids with this product. If you don’t use this product properly you can then get chemical burns and more. Always do your OWN RESEARCH before using this product.

I’ve been using the ordinary L
I’ve been using the ordinary Lactic Acid 5% + HA for a few weeks now. I used to be scared to give acids a try because I thought they would destroy my sensitive skin and basically burn it off. But I’m happy to say that I’ve been very lucky with this product as my skin has improved so much ever since I started using it. My face feels smoother (I used to have a lot of dry, rough patches), supple and I’ve been experiencing less breakouts (was not expecting this as an effect but I’m not complaining)! I think I felt some slight tingling during the first few uses but it wasn’t irritating, so I think this would be great for those who are wanting to try acids for the first time. Overall, this product is not only effective but also very affordable! Win-win! ☺️

Lactic Acid 10% + HA
The Ordinary-Lactic Acid 10% + HA
 The Ordinary AHA 30% + 2% BHA
The Ordinary AHA 30% + 2% BHA Peeling Solution 🌟 This is one of my absolute favourites, the instant results are what make me go back for more, I'm addicted to the glow. Upon application it can sting or tingle for the first few seconds but it swiftly disappears. I'll use this once a month although you can use more if you please. This is a chemical exfoliation mask and heres how it works 👇 Alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) work on the surface of the skin, gently dissolving the bonds between dead skin cells so that they can be easily removed, making way for a softer and smoother surface. They’re water-soluble, so they don’t penetrate deep below the surface of the skin, but are capable of reducing the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and dark spots. Beta hydroxy acid (BHA) more commonly known as salicylic acid is oil soluble so it can penetrate beneath the skin’s surface, cleaning out excess sebum from the pores and reducing oiliness. This mask is my go to for tired, dull looking skin and when I need a little extra product absorption.
