Hi friends! 👋 I’m currently and FINALLY ready to stop being cheap by ridding my Pantene and Garnier hair care products!!!!

help :( best rosy pink/winter kiss blush?
hi friends! 👋😊 I’m looking for a new blush, preferably one that’s pinkish (I usually use ones that are more coral or nude). My skin tone is a light/medium-warm/neutral if that makes any sense 😂 I think I would prefer a powder blush recommendation but I love a good cream blush sometimes so consistency doesn’t matter. I’m just too indecisive to decide which blush to purchase so I want help from you all 😇 Thankuuuuuu!!

help:( best primer for pore/texture smoothing???
Hi friends! 👋 I just wanted to know your recommendations of primers that you feel completely smooth the skin and keep you decently matte in the t-zone area (specifically the nose bc my makeup always fades there the quickest lol). :)))) Thankuuuuu

Have you ever been in such a situation? Sometimes it's hard to get up because you don't get enough sleep last night, but you have to work the next day😥So you need a simple but different hairstyle that makes you look energetic. Also, when you go to the office and see the same people every day, it’s easy to fall into a routine with your hair style. However, you don't wish to do something really complicated in your hair. Then you need a simple, time-saving and stylish hairstyle. It only has three simple steps. If you are interested, just try it!
Night Owls: work overtime while you sleep
When you’re a night owl, you’re probably not a morning person so you may not have a ton of steps in your morning skincare routine or may not want to put in a ton of work at 6 AM. I FEEL you. Trust me. Your new hack is: overnight masks! The two overnight masks I’ll be highlighting here are: SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask & YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask I use one of these masks to hydrate overnight, and one of these masks to exfoliate and refine my skin’s tone and texture. Can you guess what I’m about to say??? Overnight masks can work overnight while you sleep to give you real skin results. When used on a regular basis, these products can really make a difference in your skin tone and texture. First, I’m going to highlight the mask that I use for exfoliation purposes: SUMMER FRIDAYS - Jet Lag Mask You might be saying: “exfoliation? but isn’t it a hydrating mask?” Well, not really. The second ingredient (after water) is chestnut seed extract which is a natural exfoliant. The hydrating ingredients in this mask actually come pretty far down the ingredient list which means they don’t make up a large component of the formula. I typically use this mask overtop of my entire PM routine (including a facial oil) and by morning my redness is gone, pores are significantly smaller, and my skin is smooth as a baby’s butt. Really. The kicker ingredients are play here are not only the chestnut seed extract but the niacinamide and vitamin c. I only use this mask 2 times a week at night only—I never use it as a moisturizer or makeup primer because it is extremely drying if not used over a moisturizer or facial oil. I rate this 4/5 stars because I believe it is falsely advertised as a hydrating mask, whereas it is not hydrating at all! The second mask I’ll be highlighting is: YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask This mask really is a “dream mask.” I typically use this one on top of or underneath benzoyl peroxide which can be incredibly drying. I need to use BP to actively work against my breakouts but I can’t stand waking up to dry, flaky skin. This saves the day & it has ingredients like vitamin c which help address other skin concerns while I sleep. I have to do zero work for full benefits. I rate this 5/5 because it has helped clear up my skin and hydrate it when it is feeling dry! I have fair skin that is combination sensitive-acne prone-rosacea and reactive to many natural ingredients. This makes it incredibly hard to find good products. Both of these have my seal of approval. What are your favorite overnight masks?

💖💖I've tried 5⃣ hyped RETINOL products and here is my personal ranking...
I have combo-oily skin. It’s common to link oily skin to acne. So I am always looking for products that help clear up my acne and blemishes, and give my skin a healthy glow. My dermatologist recommended RETINOL to me. 🧑🏻⚕️🧑🏻⚕️ For those unfamiliar with retinol, it is a type of retinoid. Alongside other retinoids, such as retinoic acid and retinyl palmitate—retinol is essentially a derivative of vitamin A and it helps with acne (including blackheads and whiteheads), also help stimulate collagen in the long term, reducing the overall appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.♥♥ However, retinol can be very irritating if used too frequently or if the formulation is too strong for your skin. So beginners should start off with a pea-sized amount of a low percentage over-the-counter formula, and using it two times per week, slowly increasing the usage to give the skin a chance to acclimate. ⚠⚠ There are lots of retinol products in the market, with various claims and price tags. Today I'm going to review popular products from 5 brands. If the post is too long, I'll divide it into several parts. If you want to try retinol, you may find the post quite useful. 👇🏻👇🏻 Here is my personal ranking: 1⃣PETER THOMAS ROTH 2⃣Paula's Choice 3⃣CeraVe 4⃣The Ordinary 5⃣Algenist PETER THOMAS ROTH Retinol PM Night Shift System-The kit has a serum, an eye cream, and pads. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Retinol Fusion PM Night Serum 🌟It contains 1.5% retinol, making it by far the product with the highest retinol concentration on the market. It is transparent, oily, and has a very runny consistency. It makes your face look oily when you first apply it, but it's then immediately and completely absorbed by the skin. I highly recommend this retinol night serum as it gives you smoother and more radiant skin. It is oil-free, scent-free, and consists of simple ingredients, main squalene for moisture and a little vitamin C & vitamin E. The major downside is the price - $65.00 for 30ml, a bit pricey. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Retinol Fusion Pm Eye Cream-0.5oz for $55 🌟This is a white, silky paste that is easily absorbed and non-greasy. Its ingredients include 1% retinol for anti-aging, anti-oxidative vitamin C for whitening, caffeine to reduce puffy eyes, and hyaluronic acid plus shea butter for moisturizing. It's not moisturizing enough for me, so I normally add a moisturizing product with a higher oil content to my follow-up skincare routine. Fusion PM Overnight Resurfacing Pads-30pads for $52 🌟I will use the resurfacing pads to wipe my face and neck with the Retinol Fusion PM Night Serum after cleansing. The light yellow resurfacing pads turn white after use. There is not a particularly high concentration of retinol in these pads and I don't recommend buying and using them as a single product. I give it 5/5 cuz of the oil-free formulation, the highest retinol concentration and other helpful ingredients like squalene, vitamin C & vitamin E. I'll talk about the other 4 products in my next posts. If you have any suggestions or questions please hmu 🥰
