first impressions: MAD HIPPIE VITAMIN C 🍊
Mad Hippie - Vitamin C Serum I thought i’d try something new with the photos so I hope you like it ! I have been looking for ages for a good vitamin C serum that is also affordable as I have never used a vitamin C product before! I am utterly in shock at how amazing this product is after one use. 🍊 claims 🍊 tightens, brightens & smoothes the skin 🍊 key ingredients 🍊 vitamin c (antioxidant that helps reduce the appearance of discolouration, wrinkles and fine lines) vitamin e (protective antioxidant reduce wrinkles and discolouration) ferulic acid (antioxidant) hyaluronic acid (hydration and plumps the skin) konjac root powder (has MANY nutrients) grapefruit (antioxidant and has citric acid. acts as a natural exfoliant) chamomile extract (soothes and helps with redness and inflammation) clary sage (natural toner that helps avoid overly dry or overly oily skin) as you can see this is a whole packed filled ingredient list!! 🍊my thoughts 🍊 I used it in my night routine as I was so eager to try it out. it has a slight yellow colour to it and a thick-ish consistency. it went onto my skin so smoothly and soaked in very nicely. I woke up this morning to the softest skin ever. and when I mean softest, I truly do!! some uneven texture that I had on my face, completely gone, as well as improved dark spots. this was just in one night so I can’t wait to see the results in the near future. I will definitely let you all know how it goes! ULTA- $34USD for 1oz

the BEST TONER in my opinion
peach slices - Snail Rescue Blemish Busting Toner now we know that toners aren’t necessary in a skincare routine, however, because of this product for me, I don’t think i’ll be going back to no toner ! 🌟 claims 🌟 clears pores ”zaps zits” strengths the skin barrier hydrates the skin gently exfoliated and purifies 🐌 key ingredients 🐌 snail mucin hyaluronic acid centella asiatica extract 🤩 my thoughts 🤩 I absolutely adore this product and it’s ingredients ! it’s a thin consistency that applies smoothly, and sinks into the skin so easily. it has no fragrance which I absolutely love too. I use this in the morning and night every day in my routines as it’s so gentle ! I believe that this product has helped to control pimples that I get, dark spots and textured skin that I get around my jawline. I haven’t noticed too much of a difference with my pores/blackheads, but no product that I have used has made a significant impact on them haha (I think they are their own lost cause). I definitely recommend this product for any skin type and any skin concern! $$- ULTA $14 for 4oz

THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum hey my loves ! this is my first ever retinol that I have purchased and I have been using it for a few months now so thought I’d give my opinion on it! firstly, what is retinol? retinol is an “over the counter” version of a retinoid and vitamin A and its benefits include: boosting elasticity and collagen in the skin, improving acne, fine lines & wrinkles, sun damage, uneven texture, hyperpigmentation and large pores. retinol can be a very strong ingredient to use, especially for people with sensitive skin, or for those who are just trying it out for the first time. the best recommendation would be to buy one at a low percentage of retinol first, and then build up as your skin adjusts. 🌙 my thoughts 🌙 I do quite like this product! I do not have any other retinols to compare it to, however I like a lot of things about this one. it is a cream texture, so I put this on right before my moisturiser at night. it’s a lightweight consistency too ! I started using this once a week for a few weeks, and then built up to 2-3 times a week! I do notice a difference when I use this product with my uneven texture around my jawline, and bumps that I have on my forehead. it also helps with my acne scars and getting the pigmentation of those down. I have another retinol that is coming soon so i’ll have to compare it to this one! altogether, I do think this is a great starter retinol to get into and definitely recommend !!

oily skin & don’t know how to manage? I got you
this post is for all the people who have oily skin and sometimes just don’t know how to deal with it! well i’m here for some tips! I have oily/combo skin and I’ve learnt some important info during my skincare journey that I would love to share with you all 🤗 1. still moisturise it is super important for people with oily skin to keep up with moisturising ! you may think that your skin is hydrated and doesn’t need any extra moisture, but it still really does. if you don’t moisturise, or use products to keep your skin hydrated, your skin can overcompensate with releasing it’s natural oils, which in hand, can make your skin more oily 2. don’t be afraid of oils whether this is oil cleansing or any certain type of oil (rosehip, squalane etc), don’t be hesitant to use these products just because of your skin type. for me, oils have made a huge difference to my skin, especially oil cleansing! one thing to remember with oil cleansing, is that oils attract oils, and therefore are oil soluble. products like this help to get rid of grease, blackheads etc and can be great for oily skin! 3. use products targeted for oily skin I know that this one is quite self explanatory, but here are some products that helped my oily skin become more manageable! - niacinamide. this ingredient is amazing for oily skin ! it helps to decrease oil production from within the skin. my fav product is NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% , but I also don’t mind The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% -exfoliation. now with this I don’t mean physical exfoliation, but chemical exfoliation! my favourite exfoliant has to be PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator this one is my HOLY GRAIL product of them all ! I have many posts on this product so be sure to check those out for an in depth description. - clay face masks. these are good for absorbing oil and giving your face a matte finish. some of my favs are PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay I hope this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to comment 🌟🥰

Dermatologist’s Tips for Starting Adapalene
Adapalene is my go-to retinoid for beginners! Why? It’s prescription strength, clinically proven to improve acne, hyperpigmentation and acne scars. It’s also the gentlest of the prescription-strength retinoids and one of the most stable, meaning that it can be used during the daytime and at the same time as benzoyl peroxide. And to top it all off, it’s now available over the counter! Here’s how to get started: Take it slow! Adapalene, like other retinoids, can cause irritation and purging in the first few weeks. The easiest was to avoid this is to start slowly. Start out applying it 2-3 days per week and gradually work up to daily application. A little Dan is all you need! You don’t need to be bathing in adapalene to see good results. In fact, applying the correct amount (a pea-size) will help ensure that you’re getting the benefits without increasing the risk of irritation. I like to take my pea-sized amount and dab it on the forehead, nose, chin and both cheeks before spreading to ensure even application. Slap on a moisturizer first! Another way to make adapalene more tolerable is applying it AFTER moisturizer. I know this sounds counterintuitive, but some studies done with other retinoids indicate that applying moisturizer first decreases irritation with no impact on effectiveness. I swear by this method myself. Be patient! Like with any change to your skincare routine, don’t expect to see substantial results until at least 6 weeks of consistent use. It might be hard due to irritation and purging but try to power through – the benefits are worth it. Most importantly... Adapalene can make your skin more sensitive to the sun, so don’t skimp on the SPF, hats, sunglasses and protective clothing. Though I know you’re doing that already Which one to choose? There’s not an easy answer on this one. Most over the counter adapalene gels are similar. I’ve used and enjoyed both La Roche-Posay and Differin’s versions.

🐌Snail Mucin, 🐝Propolis & 🍵Green Tea serums!
$17 each 1oz Beauty of Joseon is an affordable Korean skincare brand with a focus on clean ingredients & effective formulas paying homage to the 'Gyuhap Chongseo' 📜 The 'Gyuhap Chongseo' which is referred to as the encyclopedia of the Joseon Dynasty, was written by Yi Bingheogak, a female Silhak scholar born in 1809. The Joseon Dynasty ruled over a united Korean Peninsula for more than 500 years, from the fall of the Goryeo Dynasty in 1392 through the Japanese Occupation of 1910. In addition to various methods of housekeeping, methods of shaping eyebrows, cleansing for smooth skin & caring for hair were recorded in this book. People of the Joseon Dynasty regarded flashy adornment to be obscene & low class. As a result, women from noble families focused more on creating beautiful skin rather than on applying makeup. Now onto the serums! These are a great price at $17/1 oz Very natural, dye & fragrance free. Virtually odorless. Beauty of Joseon - Repair Serum : Ginseng+Snail Mucin 🐌 63.36% Korean ginseng water & 3.01% Snail Mucin This one & the Glow Serum tie for my favorite. My skin is so even & radiant! This is great for acne as well. It also contains Niacinamide, Matsutake mushroom extract & cacao seed extract. I think a great aspect of this serum is the triple punch of Hyaluronic treatments. It has Hyaluronic acid, hydrolyzed Hyaluronic acid, & Sodium Hyaluronate. Sodium Hyaluronate, like hydrolyzed Hyaluronic acid, has a lower molecular weight than Hyaluronic acid, meaning it can be more easily absorbed into your skin, allowing your skin to accept the benefits deeper. It feels hydrating & nourishing. It absorbs very well & is not sticky or tacky. Beauty of Joseon - Glow Serum : Propolis+Niacinamide 🐝 59.94% Propolis extract & 2% Niacinamide This is the most hydrating of the bunch, & also the thickest texture of the 3. I don’t have a lot of experience with Propolis serums, but this was not sticky at all, It feels so lush while still being very lightweight & well absorbing. Propolis is resinous mixture that honey bees produce by mixing their saliva & beeswax with exudate (pollen, nectar & saps gathered from botanical sources) Therefore the chemical composition & nature of propolis depend on environmental conditions & harvested resources. Bees use it as a sealant for small unwanted open spaces in their hive. This serum also contains 2% Niacinamide, Sodium Hyaluronate, cacao seed extract, Tamanu oil, tea tree extract (not oil) & Chinaberry extract. Beauty of Joseon - Calming Serum : Green Tea + Panthenol 🍵 76.49% green tea water & 2% Panthenol Great for sensitive, oily or acne prone skin. This ties for second place with the Repair Serum as the most hydrating, but this one wins most lightweight texture & absorbs the quickest. Very soothing with Irish Moss algae & sugarcane +this one also contains Propolis. All 3 have cacao seed extract & Sodium Hyaluronate.
