Benefits of using mucin: -Seals in moisture and helps skin
cosrx Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence. this product is 96% snail mucin 🐌. Snail mucin, it's the slimey little trail the snail leaves behind, and comes from your ordinary garden snail. No snails are harmed when it comes to collecting snail mucin, quite the opposite actually. In order for a snail to be able to produce optimum mucin, it must be well rested and feel comfortable and relaxed in its environment. How cosrx collect their mucin is, they'll be placed on a mesh net in a dark room (they're nocturnal) and are left alone to freely roam the mesh for 30 minutes, then are placed back in their home, the mesh is collected and hey presto! You've got yourself a mesh covered in mucin. The two weeks that I've been using this product, here are my visible results: -Plump and hydrated skin -Existing cystic pimples have dramatically reduced in size - Acne scars seem much less visible -No new breakouts 🎉 The product is thick and slimey in its consistency, clear in appearance and has no noticeable smell. It applies and absorbs effectively and layers well. I use this straight after toning and have no problem layering other serums and moisturisers on top, they all absorb beautifully and no stickiness is left behind. Snail mucin contains ingredients like glycoproteins, hyaluronic acid, and glycolic acid. Benefits of using mucin: -Seals in moisture and helps skin heal -Rich in hyaluronic acid and antioxidants -Plumps the skin and smoothes out fine lines and wrinkles -Stimulates collagen production -Fades acne scars and dark spots -Improves skin's texture 🐌 For me, this has been my hero product and has seriously helped improve my problematic skin.

Maybe magic is real ✨🧚🏽♀️✨🧚🏽♂️✨
This profesional-grade gel formulation contains 2% hydroquinone, azelaic acid, phenylethyl resorcinol, and kojic acid all to help brighten, correct, plump, and even out skin tone. The product itself is a clear, unscented gel. It’s a lightweight gel formula that’s a little more on the watery side. It’s not as viscous as a lot of gel products tend to be. This allows the product to be spread over the face with ease, which means a little goes a long way. It’s not sticky, greasy, or drying. It addresses pigmentation issues from sunspots to PIH to stubborn hyperpigmentation. This is such a great product!! I discovered it about 2 years ago when I went to see an esthetician and she recommended this for post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) I used to have really bad cystic acne that left me with marks all over. Nothing really worked for me until I started using this. The results were insane! Not only did I start to see a difference, but other people did too. I can’t say enough good things about this product. It’s hydrating and plumping all the while targeting pigmentation. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is dealing with an uneven skin tone and is concerned with pigmentation. 5/5 stars all day. 🌟 p.s. I know some people have an aversion to hydroquinone, but PCA does offer a hq free version of this product.
PAULA’S CHOICE AZELAIC ACID BOOSTER REVIEW
If you deal with stubborn redness, I highly recommend trying the Paula’s Choice 10% Azelaic Acid Booster. The effects from this lightweight cream booster are pretty magical— it tackles redness, uneven skin tone, dark spots, skin texture, and just improves my overall complexion. In addition to the azelaic acid, this booster contains salicylic acid to add exfoliation. I love this most for its ability to smooth out my skin texture and even out my skin tone. However, it’s quite strong, and can be sensitizing to my skin. I definitely have to avoid my mouth and eye area when applying this or else my skin will become highly sensitized. I have to make sure to wash my hands after applying this or else it will transfer and cause sensitivity. When applying this, I mix it with another creamy serum, like Krave’s Great Barrier Relief or Make Prem’s Tamanu Calming Serum. I find that this balances out the intensity of the product. I rarely use this alone anymore after some bad experiences. I’ve heard this is great mixed into or applied after moisturizer as well! It’s $36 for 1oz, but I use only a little but so it lasts quite a while. Paula’s Choice also always has amazing sales so you can definitely get this for less. I think this is a staple product that would work for most people because it helps with so many skin issues: acne, texture, redness, hyperpigmentation. If your skin is super sensitive, definitely be careful, because it is strong. But you can make it work by balancing out the intensity! PAULA'S CHOICE - 10% Azelaic Acid Booster

COSRX - AC Collection Blemish Spot Clearing Serum CentellaAC-RX complex formula +Niacinamide + Ceramide. Niacinamide helps reduce hyperpigmentation and helps brighten skin. Ceramide helps lock in moisture and protect your skin from environmental damage. Another gentle and non-irritating product! The serum is liquidy and not tacky. I need about half a dropper of serum to cover up my face and neck. I didn’t really see a significant change in my hyperpigmentation but then again, my PIH are just generally very stubborn and I have been working on fading my PIH the last couple months. I did not find this serum hydrating so I tended to layer it with another hydrating serum product. This was not a big win to me like the other products in the collection.
COSRX-AC Collection Blemish Spot Clearing Serum
Great for Hyperpigmentation and redness!
After finishing a whole bottle of this product, I give it five stars due to the fantastic results I've seen with my skin. This product is great for those trying to get rid of acne scars/hyperpigmentation, those trying to treat acne, as well as those trying to treat discoloration. This product has done all of the above for me and left my skin looking radiant and beautiful. The retail price is also relatively cheap at $16.00 through the colourpop website.Fourth Ray - Remedy 10% Niacinamide Serum

Good Molecules Discoloration Serum
Here is another serum to add to my collection of favorite serums ever!!💛 this serum is the good molecules discoloration correcting serum! I was very kindly gifted this serum by good molecules in PR. This is the serum that I saw immediate results the first time I used it. And that is not an exaggeration! I had a dark spot on my chin from a previous break out and I had tried so many things to get rid of it. I seriously could not find a product that would help at all. I tried this serum immediately after I received it in PR and within a week the spot that I had been fighting for months was gone. All of good molecules products are incredibly affordable and give off amazing results. If you are looking to fight off a dark spot I definitely recommend this serum to you it is so so so worth it!!
