I used the skin ceuticals Vitamin C holy grail
6 months after I started to take better care of my skin. Here’s some pics non filtered of my routine. 1. I purchased the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum the most recommended from dermatologist and was definitely not sure whether to purchase or no because of its price. Thank god I did 🙏 this is really the holy grail. 2. The OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Eye Crème this eye cream was gifted to me by cousin over a year ago. I love it. It’s absolutely amazing. 3. Last but no least thanks to Cherie for gifting me absolutely the best eye cream ever used Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Highly recommend these products. The most important is being consistent and using them every morning. 😘

Favorite bronzing powder
Over the years I have tried many different bronzing powders. This particular one BOBBI BROWN - BOBBI BROWN Bronzing Powder is definitely my favorite one. I carry it with me all the time. This is in shade medium 2. I will buy this again and again. Highly recommend it. I always purchase the travel size. If you want to try it travel size is the best option. That way it also allows you to purchase other items that might work better for you.

Did you put your leave in conditioner today?
My favorite leave in conditioner- CHI - Silk Infusion Silk Reconstructing Complex I love this product. It’s very simple to use, you apply a small amount onto palm of hand and work evenly throughout the hair. Leave in and proceed with styling.

It’s cold outside New York- stay hydrated
Here’s a reminder to stay hydrated as it’s currently 9 degrees in New York. My top three hydrating must have: 1. Vaseline - 100% Pure Petroleum Jelly, Original this is actually the CVS brand but they are the same to me. Vaseline needs no description. It’s absolutely a must have. I use it on my eyebrows, eyelids, my ears and my elbow. 2. CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I love cerave and this product is very light for daily use and especially for a day when I’m home I love using. 3. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 just because you’re home don’t forget to use your sun cream ladies. I received this from Cherie as a gift and I’m so happy I found out about it. Will purchase it again. Stay hydrated and glowing ☀️☀️☀️

Your face will thank you when you’re 35
I have no doubt you have already heard about the most amazing SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum !!! I started to use this last year in October and wanted to give it some time to see a difference in my face. This is by far the most expensive product I have ever bought and was for sure hesitant to purchase it or no. I decided to go ahead and buy it and have no regrets. Will purchase again and again. This is really the holy grail. Your face will thank you when you’re 35. What did I notice in my face personally? Over the summer I get dark spots on my crow’s feet. Upon starting to this vitamin C I have noticed my skin has gotten brighter now and the dark spots are disappearing. Don’t want to forget to mention that I used before the La roche pose vitamin C but did not see any difference in my face. Highly recommend this product for everyday use in the morning and please follow with your choice of sun cream... 😘SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum

Retinoid and double moisturizing
Dr Shah finally got a prescribed retinoid cream. 🙏👩🏻🤝👨🏽Unfortunately I cannot tag the product here but we can recommend you go see you a dermatologist and they can prescribe you one. When to use a prescribed retinoid cream? Why? Prescribed retinoid creams have a higher concentration of benzoyl peroxide and adapalene. You use it to prevent wrinkles. Ideally when you turn 30 you must use one. Every skin is different. It is recommended to use every night or every other night if your skin gets too irritated. Also it is normal for your skin to hurt a bit as your skin is peeling off and getting used to the changes. It is recommended to double moisturize your face (before and after applying the cream only to the area where is needed) and wash your hands right away. Do not touch any other part of your body if you have the retinoid. It may cause skin burn or irritation. Riki is using CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion at night and Avène - Cicalfate Restorative Skin Cream in the morning. This is the first week he’s been using it and he is very excited about this. We would love to hear more about what kind of prescribed retinoid do you use and how did your face reacted... Xoxo 😘🤗🥰

Weather changes causing dry scalp?
Weather changes along with stress, diet, and many other factors can have an affect on the health of your scalp. The Briogeo Scalp Treatment Briogeo - Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment Serum is a dry oil formula with tea tree and charcoal to help heal and balance the moisture levels of your scalp! I discovered this product during spring last year when I started having dandruff for the first time since I was a kid. I imagine the weather changes along with increased stress levels were making my scalp super itchy and dry. I looked on the Allure best of beauty list for 2018 and this oil was there, so I decided to pull the trigger and splurge on myself. I am SO glad I did. I use this about every 2-3 washes to prolong it (it’s an expensive little bottle) and my scalp is happy and healthy through all weather and life changes. It has a strong tea tree scent and leaves your scalp feeling “mint-tingly” but that goes away after it soaks into your scalp. Since this is a dry oil, it doesn’t leave any strange residue on your hair or increase the frequency in which you must wash your hair. It’s like a hair product but just for your scalp! I also adore the design of the dropper to help angle it to hit the sides of your head! My tips for using this product are: -use it AFTER showering while your hair is still wet -use the scalp massager Briogeo - Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager along with this to help work the product in and disperse better! I used to just use my fingers which was fine but I found my fingernails were just too sharp and they hurt my scalp. The massager has silicone tips that won’t harm your skin! -store with your other frequently used hair products to remind yourself to use it My one complaint is the price. It’s $32 for 1oz. Honestly if it didn’t normalize my scalp as well as it has, I wouldn’t be here recommending it! It’s one of the few products I will allow myself to splurge on. If you are having dry scalp issues I recommend trying this out! I have to rate it 5/5 for my great experience with it!!

Beauty Hack to clean your razor
I posted this to my Tic Tok account its a beauty hack I have been using since I was a kid to clean hair out of my razor and to Clean it. Also Helps you get a few more uses out of your razor. Materials need 1): Bowel 2): Razor 3): Alcohol Steps: 1: put razor in bowl 2): pour alcohol in bowl just covering razor 3): if it has a moisture strip let it sot no more than 5 mins the alcohol can dissolve the strip. If it doesn’t have a moisture strip let it sit for about 30 minutes. 6): kind of shake it a little bit in the bowl and then run it under warm water and there you go clean razor I recommend this to anybody it’s simple easy. It’s something my mother taught me to do, to clean my razor out when I was a teenager to get more use out of it, and clean out the hairs and gunk. Try it out let me know what you think Venus Gillette - Venus Razor Refill Cartridges I am a huge fan of Gillette Venus razors. I specially love the ones that have thick moisture stripes. They just glides across your skin and helps prevent nicks or cuts. The refills are a little pricey but I think it’s worth it they last a long time, and if you use my trick above you can make them last even longer.

I have joined the party
I don’t know why it took me so long.....probably was distracted by all those sexy lipsticks and hot bronzers. Excuse my fickle wallet. I am here now and excited to join the fandom of Laura Mercier setting powder. Although I have combination skin, I never used to set my foundation. 🤷♀️ Travesty I know but now that I have grown older, I have come to my senses and I am here to stay, powdering my T-zone like a boss.
