I prefer all things simple ❤️
Budget body scrubs I ❤️❤️❤️!!
Hey guys! Until last year I’ve only ever used one body scrub: lemon juice + sugar + rose water (and I still advocate it strongly!) But I wanted to try something new so I started out with MAJESTIC PURE - Himalayan Salt Scrub and then tried Dove - Exfoliating Body Polish Crushed Macadamia & Rice Milk and I love them both! A detailed description of both is below: MAJESTIC PURE - Himalayan Salt Scrub ￼￼Makes my skin feather soft! ￼￼The oils in it leave a residue (or essence?) but not in a bad way, I barely notice it but it feels great! (PS: my skin is dry so my skin actually feels very moisturized after this) ￼￼Has a wonderful scent ￼￼Texture: it’s like a loose powder and not a paste, you’ve to scoop and apply ￼￼Supposed to have a lot more qualities like relieving muscle cramps, improve circulation, combat water retention, etc. I can’t attest to them very strongly as I didn’t notice too much of a difference ￼￼I use it on dry skin before I shower Dove - Exfoliating Body Polish Crushed Macadamia & Rice Milk ￼￼Makes my skin soft (not as soft as the Himalayan salt one) ￼￼Suuuper affordable ￼￼Smells decent (I prefer the lychee scent myself) ￼￼Texture: Whipped cream-ish ￼￼I feel like I need to use more quantity of this scrub to get the same results as the salt one ￼￼I use it on wet skin but I don’t know if it matters if you use it on dry either I don’t use either scrubs on my face because my cheeks get irritated but on the rest of the body they work great! Both of these don’t break your bank and I love them both.. As of now I’m a little bit more inclined towards the Majestic Pure scrub but I don’t think you can beat the price of Dove! As a side note, I’m also considering using nourishing oils with my natural lemon body scrub to see if I achieve better results coz I am nuts for anything citrusy and I really prefer natural ingredients! Cheers! ✨

My hair feels clean! 😍
Hey guys! So recently I tried out the Neutrogena - The Anti-Residue Shampoo, All Hair Types, 6 fl oz (175 ml) I don’t use a lot of product but my scalp gets itchy with the hard water residue. But this shampoo makes my hair feel clean from the first wash! It also smells amazing!! It says on the bottle to use only weekly and use your regular shampoo otherwise. Since I only shampoo once every 3 days so I use this every 3rd wash. Apparently it’s supposed to make your hair a little dry so I use ogx - Coconut Miracle Oil Conditioner for hydration.

Need help, what are these? 🤔
Hey all! I’ve been recently getting these bumps on my forehead. I’m not a skincare expert so I’m wondering what these are and what I should do to get rid of these? Thanks!
Review of the new CeraVe smoothing cleanser. The new formula is targeted at dry, rough and bumpy skin- it aims to gently cleanse and exfoliate without disrupting the skins protective barrier. This can be used on the face and body and especially good at treating Keratosis Piliaris (those pesky bumps on the arms) so I've been keeping mine in the shower and use it on my face and body in the mornings. The ingredient lists boast three essential ceramides, niacinimide, Glycerin, salicylic acid, hyalaronic acid and one I was surprised about was Gluconolacctone, a polyhydroxy acid or (PHA) which is higher on the ingredient list than its namesake salicylic acid (BHA). PHAs offer less irritation than their acidic counterparts and are humectants, meaning they attract water so they are great at keeping the skin supple and moisturised. So here's my thoughts: I've been using this for three weeks and can see an improvement in texture, my skin feels baby soft after using this and It left my skin squeaky clean without feeling tight and irritated. It would suit all skin types due to its gentle formula, I have dry skin and it hasn't left me feeling stripped it's actually provided me with some much needed moisture. It's been mild enough for me to use before my retinol on occasions, I had no irritations or reactions doing this, I know you're not suppose to mix acids with retinols but I think the added PHAs, ceramides and HA really help to cushion the salicylic acid. I wouldn't say this is great for removing make-up and daily grime as it's feels too mild, I would use this as a second cleanse in that case. But I've found it perfect as a morning cleanse in the shower. All in all an affordable gentle cleanser with some impressive ingredients that I would continue to use as a gentle cleanse. If you're on the lookout for a gentle exfoliating cleanser then this is the one 🙌🏽

Looking for hair care recommendation
I have type 1A hair, fine and straight. My hair is very thin and I’ve lost a lot of hair. I’m looking for a routine or products to try that helps my hair grow strong and healthy. I’m leaning towards natural or environmental friendly products that doesn’t cost me a fortune. I’m currently using the Love, Beauty and Planet shampoo and conditioner. I like the brands and their products but not very impressed with the one I’m using. I still lost a lot of hair every wash. If you have any recommendation for me, I’d really appreciate it 😊
The best toner for dry skin and your wallet
Trader Joe’s really just GETS it. This is their Rose Water Facial Toner and I LOVE it. Function: This product is formulated with real Damask rose water and Damask rose oil (to bedew and moisturize), witch hazel (to balance and tone), and a bit of Quillaja saponaria extract (to soften and condition). Targets: Dehydration and texture. Texture/Consistency: It is a spray that feels exactly like water! Notable Highlights: It REALLY smells like roses! OPINIONS 💫 I really love this product and for so many reasons! It tones your face and hydrates it at the same time. It smells BEAUTIFULLY, and you instantly feel refreshed when you spray it on. It also sprays very wide and evenly so one to two spritz is perfect. I have super sensitive skin and have never experienced breakouts or adverse reactions with this product. I also really get dried out quickly and can always count on this product to tone my face while still moisturizing and hydrating it. I would totally recommend this product if you have dry skin. It’s a toner but completely hydrated and refreshes your skin at the same time. PRICE: It is a 4 oz bottle and the price is.... *drumroll* $3.99!!!! If that isn’t a steal i don’t know what is! I definitely think the price and product are worth it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
How high SPF do I really need?
Higher SPF values? Whether hey’re worth? Well, the fact is a higher SPF may not be worth the extra cost. Summer is coming and is its vacation season. Many should be prepared for the beautiful sunshine. One of the questions people may have is “how high SPF do I need?” and “Does it really make a difference?” I was one of them holding these questions for years. Now lets figure it out! One of the wrong skincare myths many may have is “higher SPF is better” unfortunately , that’s wrong. SPF basically measures how long a sunscreen will protect you from ultraviolet B rays. Which are the rays the damages the outer layer of the skin called epidermis. Some of you might heard that FDA is considering capping the SPF max is 60. This SPF number tells you how long these UVA rays would take to burn your skin comparing with no sunscreen on your skin. Above a certain level, a higher sun protection factor (SPF) has little added benefit compared with a lower SPF. According to a recent study from Harvard, “Experts generally recommend using sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, which blocks out 97% of UVB radiation. It’s tricky that the values above 30 becomes kinda tricky. Higher SPF can be more forgiving..” This means that it may be worth a higher SPF if you're planning to be outside for more than two to three hours. In real life, many actually don’t apply sunscreen exactly the way the instruction explained meaning that they either do not apply enough on the surface of their skin or they don’t re-apply as frequently as they should through out the day especially during hours of peak sun exposure (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). Elta MD UV Elements is a 100% physical sunscreen in a tinted, moisturizing base. This is the sunscreen most recommended to me by multiple dermatologists and skincare experts that I have interacted with. One thing I really love about this product is that its supper gentle. My mom is a super sensitive skin and almost allergic to 90% of the sunscreen. This one works well for her. This has a nice, creamy texture, and and re-applies nicely.elta md SKINCARE - UV Lip Balm Sunscreen Broad-Spectrum SPF 31
