Just got a few new products in to try! The Indie Lee Cleanser, and toner, which I already really like so far! I’ve been using the Vitamin C serum by Dermalogica and It’s a favorite of mine, so is the Tarte pout prep. I’ve recently been using the Murad moisturizer & FAB Eye cream so I will update my thoughts soon on all the products! INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser dermalogica - BioLumin-C Vitamin C Serum

Product Mentioned
dermalogica for all your skin concerns!💿
so to start i just want to say i am very lucky and have received most of my products i post for free for a few reasons, one is from working with cherie the past few months (they’re amazing!), my best friend is also a manager at ulta and gives me a ton of really nice products for free! and lastly i have 3 good friends who are popular content creators and i’m lucky enough to get the products they don’t want😂 dermalogica - Calm Water Gel Moisturizer $50 1.7oz (sephora) I recently started the dermalogica line a month ago and I’m absolutely loving it. I had dry skin with some oily spots and I’ve been using the calm water gel moisturizer and it has my face so hydrated and glowly..It’s a line I would like to stick with. The only downside is the price is pretty expensive but it is kind of a luxury brand. dermalogica - BioLumin-C Vitamin C Serum 1oz $89 I have been trying to find a product to help with my acne scarring and fine lines, and this works wonders. I have only been using this for 2 weeks now and I already see a huge change in my skin overall. it's cleared, and I feel like I can actually go without makeup now. I definitely recommend this If you want to try a vitamin c serum. the price is just crazy though. dermalogica - Biolumin-C Vitamin C Eye Serum $70 .5oz This product is amazing! I’ve always had prominent dark circles and have used many other products (Philosophy, Estée Lauder, and even other Dermalogica products), and nothing compares to this. This product is excellent at both brightening the eye area, and neutralizing and puffiness. I will be sticking with this eye cream so long as the formula doesn’t change. Another great product by Dermalogica. This and the OleHenrickson are my top two eye creams ever i love them! Ole is about half the price if you want one just as good.

{Skincare} Dermalogica Biolumin-C Serum
{What is it?} A high-performance Vitamin C serum that provides antioxidants to the skin to visibly brighten, firm, reduce the appearance of wrinkles. {Who/What is it for?} Normal, Dry, Combination & oily. All skin tones. Hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin tone. {Texture/Consistency?} I personally feel like it’s a lightweight gel and very smooth. I don’t know if gel is the best way to describe it but 🙄 {My thoughts?} I love this serum! This is my second bottle, as I use it everyday after cleansing and toning but before moisturizer! I wear it when I don’t wear makeup and when I do. It doesn’t make my makeup move or apply weird. When I don’t wear makeup it makes my skin so bright and luminous! Defiantly have seen results as well, my skin appears brighter and firmer as I’ve been using it for 9 months. {Is it worth it?} It’s $87.00 for 1oz so it’s kind of pricy but I believe all good Vitamin C serums I’ve found (please refer me a cheaper one if you know of one!!) are expensive so I would say Yes it’s worth it because I’ve seen dramatic results. I would recommend if you have acne scars, dark spots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines or loss of firmness! dermalogica - BioLumin-C Vitamin C Serum

Mini ulta haul✨
Sometimes $58 can only get you one thing at ulta Today it got me FOUR 😌 Starting off with some skincare from indie lee I have never tried this brand before but I saw they had a clarifying face wash INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleansergot a trial size and that intrigued me into the brand then stumbled upon their INDIE LEE - Banish Stickwhich I think would be great for mascne since pimple patches don’t really work for me ! Also this cult favorite KOPARI - Coconut Lip Glossybut in the original coconut oil flavor super excited to see how this gloss is since I love lip care Lastly I’ve had my eyes on this product for some time now and the price is pretty decent alleyoop - All-In-One Portable Razorhonestly can’t wait to try this little bad boy out I recently started laser hair removal so this is perfect for touch ups and or underarms 😌 Can’t wait to review all these items on cherie!

Part II Empties - Repurchase?
ALL OF THESE I’VE REVIEWED BEFORE IN PREVIOUS POSTS SO PLEASE SEE THEM FOR MORE IN-DEPTH REVIEWS. (Except GR) Medik8 - HYDR8 B5 Liquid Rehydration Serum This HA is AMAZING! It feels like butter! HYDR8 has many great attributes but one that really makes me want to keep purchasing: 💦 Hydr8 B5 contains multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid. The smaller sizes are able to penetrate deep into the skin and draw hydration up from the lower layers. Larger sizes are too big to get into the skin’s network, but sit on top of the complexion acting as a hydration reservoir to continuously feed the upper layers of the skin with water. I can absolutely feel exactly where this touches my face and where it has missed. It’s so good! BUT do I need to spend $50 on HA? I’m just not convinced. I have another bottle I received free with purchase and I’m going to really watch and put it to the test to see if I can notice a difference between a $10 HA and a $50 one. ⭐️ repurchase - TBD GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum This was a mini size I added on a Sephora perk. I really liked it and decided to purchase the full-size when I got 20% off. This HA has multiple sizes of hyaluronic acid as well. It absorbs nicely without leaving any sticky residue. When I am working with HA I’m looking for them to add a fair amount of hydration to my skin. I have very fine lines in my forehead and when my skin is dry they are noticeable. As soon as I add HA they are almost undetectable! So HA is a favorite of mine! ⭐️ repurchase - undecided INDIE LEE - Brightening Cleanser A cleanser I’ll always keep in stock. I’ve used this for years. love that you can leave this on for an extra 10-20 mins to use as a brightening mask! ⭐️ repurchase - Yes! FARMACY - Honeymoon Glow Serum I’ve been using this for 2.5 years and have yet to find something I’d give it up for. I’ve talked about this serum so much (and their other products) people came to know me as the “Farmacy girl.” It’s the one product I could never give up! 👊 ⭐️ repurchase - hell ya! There ya go, all my empties over the last 5-6 months. I probably had more but I can be bad at remembering to save my samples/minis to review. ❤️🍒

These items are 😍
These products are worth every penny! I haven’t had much luck with face washes and toners but these are great! The last two toners I used, left my skin feeling sticky and I was told it was the toner causing that so I checked out Indie Lee! INDIE LEE - Purifying Face Wash I use this Am/Pm everyday and it makes my skin feel nice and doesn’t strip my skin which I love! I love the smell and the packaging is 😍! INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner The second step is this toner and again the smell is incredible! Some days I spray this directly on my face or I spray it on a cotton pad! The packaging is 😍 just like the face wash! These products are definitely worth the money! You can find these on their website and at your local Ulta!❤️

Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner Review
[PRODUCT REVIEW] Toner INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner Alcohol free Vegan Cruelty free Gluten free Contains antioxidants Hyaluronic acid and aloe vera based What it is: A toner/essence spray that protects skin against environmental stressors with antioxidants and also hydrates, soothes, refreshes, and primes the skin. Texture: Lightweight, not sticky, absorbs fast. My experience: One of my favorite toners! It’s my second bottle emptied and it will stay in my rotation. It’s not a miracle product. But I truly enjoy the light and refreshing scent and how it calms my skin and provides an extra layer of hydration. Plus it’s packed with antioxidants (third one on the ingredient list after water and aloe vera extracts)! I use it both AM and PM after cleansing and before serums.

Morning routine
My Morning routine is all about protection! Protection from the sun and pollution in the air. I have dry skin and it needs a lot of moisture and hydration. No cleansing. I rarely cleanse in the morning mainly because I have dry skin and cleansing in the morning makes it’s feel dry. I always double cleanse at night to get all grime and makeup off. I just splash with warm water and apply my products First step is the OLE HENRIKSEN - Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum this has hyaluronic acid in which is great for absorbing moisture and putting it back into your skin. Vitamin C is great for the morning but you must use SPF as it makes your skin sensitive to sunlight but when you use SPF with vitamin c they work together to fight off free radicals. Next is a prescription eczema cream now if you don’t have eczema feel free to skip this step. This cream is specifically for this face as it doesn’t have steroids in it and I put it on my eyes and around my mouth when I have flare ups. Next is the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Eye Duty Triple Remedy A.M. Gel Cream very basic eye cream that helps hydrate your skin and just locks moisture in. Don’t have to use an eye cream but it’s always nice to have Then I apply FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration this is a basic moisturiser that hydrates the skin. It has ceramides and antioxidants that help repair and nourish the skin barrier. It is fairly light weight but very moisturising. The most important step and then final one LA ROCHE-POSAY - Anthelios XL Lotion SPF 60 sunscreen is a must ! And this one is amazing for sensitive skin and is very light weight. You must always wear sunscreen during the day. Because the sun is the number one cause of wrinkles and it protects you from more nasty things as well.

{Skincare} FAB Triple remedy AM eye gel
{What is it?} A fast absorbing eye treatment that hydrates , helps skin appear firmer & diminish the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles. {Who is it for?} All skin types & sensitive. {Texture/Consistency?} It is a lightweight hydrating gel, it smooths immediately into the skin. {My thoughts?} I really love this eye gel! I’ve used it mornings only for the past 5 months and it makes my eyes feel so hydrated & really helps my makeup NOT crease. Its perfect underneath all different powders & concealers. It feels so refreshing and cooling. It helped diminish any puffiness I may have in the AM. I find it doesn’t brighten anything though so I don’t like it at night time. I do like the pump bottle as well it’s very easy and clean to get product. {Would I recommend?} Yes, it worked well for my morning time routine. I am not sure if I like the price, it is .5 oz for $36. I will say the product has lasted me since I opened it in March and I consistently have been using it since July and I’m not even half way done! I only use half of a pump. I find that a whole pump is too much. I would defiantly repurchase. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Eye Duty Triple Remedy A.M. Gel Cream

Current skincare saviors ✨ I h
Current skincare saviors ✨ I have concluded that the indie lee brightening cleanser is as good as everyone has said it is. This potent cleanser is packed with amazing ingredients such as strawberry seed oil, wheat proteins, and tomato extracts. Together, these ingredients beautifully balance, brighten, and hydrate the skin. It’s probably one of the best smelling skincare products I have ever experienced. It has made my dull skin noticeably brighter and unbelievably soft. - I’m also swooning over caudalie’s Premier Cru Anti-Aging Eye Cream*. This eye cream has been coined as “photoshop for the eyes” and I honestly believe it. It is packed with powerful peptides and grape seed polyphenols. The luxurious texture melts right into the skin. This beauty is intended to target puffiness, dark circles, fine lines, and wrinkles. It is incredibly nourishing and really soothes my under eye area after a long day.

Brightening Cleanser
INDIE LEE-Brightening Cleanser
•Neogen Bio-Peel “Gauze Peelin
•Neogen Bio-Peel “Gauze Peeling-Lemon”: how fun are these chemical + manual exfoliating pads? These are composed of triple-layer gauze to manually remove dead skin and infused with AHA to chemically exfoliate leaving skin smoother and brighter (at home peel). They are double sided & have a slot in between the 2 layers to insert your fingers, making application simple. They also contain lemon extract (vitamin C!) for added skin brightening (and they smell so good, like a sweet 🍋). Make sure to rinse after use because they do leave a somewhat sticky residue on skin (included in directions on container). . •La Roche Posay “Hydraphase Intense”: I have used this moisturizer for YEARS & I LOVE it - contains hyaluronic acid for intense hydration but it has a light, non-greasy texture so it works with my oily skin. There are 2 variations of the product: light (legere) & rich (riche); I have both, but mainly stick with light unless my skin is dry during the winter months . •Ole Henrikson “Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser”: I recently received this cleanser & am looking forward to trying it out- can’t wait to see if it truly helps control oil … . •Purlisse “Watermelon Energizing Aqua Balm”: this is a lightweight, oil-free gel-cream that soaks into skin rapidly leaving skin hydrated but not oily. It has a nice 🍉 scent is super refreshing (but not overwhelming)! I am loving it so far! . •Origins “GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream”: this is one of the first eye creams I ever tried (the container has had a makeover since I purchased) but it works really well to depuff under eye bags - it has a cooling/refreshing feel once applied (contains coffee beans and ginseng) and is formulated with natural optic brighteners (has a pearly shimmery sheen to literally visibly brighten the under eye area)… kind of like a 2-in-1 highlighter + eye cream 👌🏻

My intensely hydrating morning skincare routine!
My intensely hydrating morning skincare routine!
My morning (am) skincare routine!! 🌿Skin type- my skin type is very dry in the winter but pretty normal in the summer! My skin is never oily! My face tends to get some redness, but my skin isn’t acne prone at all! 🌿My morning skincare routine- the first thing I use in the morning is cleanser! My favorite one for the morning is the olehenrikson truth juice cleanser! This smells exactly like oranges and is super fresh, and really helps to wake me up in the mornings! It is very brightening which is great for before I do my makeup, but it also leaves my skin super moisturized and didn’t leave it striped! the next product I use is an essence mist! My favorite essence mist is the Saturday skin daily dew hydrating essence mist! This is a very refreshing and hydrating mist! This helps to deliver moisture over and under makeup which I love for my dry skin! The third product I use is serum! My favorite morning serum is the volition beauty strawberry serum! This serum helps to brighten my face with also giving it a dewy glow that I love! And it does all of that while also moisturizing my skin as well, it is very hydrating and helps clear dry spots on my face as well! The next product I use is eye cream! My favorite morning eye cream is the Saturday skin wide awake brightening eye cream! This eye cream is very hydrating, and also illuminates and refreshes the eye area all without striping my under eyes moisture which is awesome! The final product that I use in the morning is moisturizer! I love the fresh vitamin c glow moisturizer for the morning so much! It’s a very lightweight moisturizer that still carries lots of moisture which is super helpful before putting on a full face of makeup! It awakens skin for a daily dose of glow but keeping true to its hydrating properties, which is exactly would I need for my dry skin! 🌿how I discovered my morning routine- I kinda just slowly started to discover amazing products that worked super well for my dry skin! After talking with a bunch of friends and people on social media, I had lots of recommendations of products for dry skin! I would always read reviews on products and one day I had an amazing routine that worked miracles on my skin for the morning time! 🌿how long have I been using this am routine- I have been using this routine for about 8 months now and my experience couldn’t be better, it is absolutely amazing for my dry skin friends!

I PRESENT TO YOU ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAV TONERS!!! the indie lee COQ10 toner- hydrates and rebalances the skin with ingredients such as hyloranic acid and aloe vera. This toner is formulated with antioxidants and leaves skin protected from pollution and environmental aggressors. this toner comes in a spray form my opinions- LOVE LOVE LOVE this toner. I use this when i need that extra boost of hydration and radiance. The smell is AMAZING and it always leaves my skin happyyy :) I will say the one down side of this product is the packaging. This packaging is glass, which makes it very easy to break. I broke the back of my bottle and since then have been very annoyed with the hole thats there😂 overall i absolutely adore this product and would recommend for anyone needing that extra hydration boot🤩💦 INDIE LEE - CoQ-10 Toner

youthtothepeople Hydrate and G
youthtothepeople Hydrate and Glow Dream Mask: This ultra velvety mask boasts some absolutely incredible ingredients (maqui, vitamin c, squalane, and hyaluronic acid) These ingredients work overnight to reveal truly hydrated skin in the a.m. It has been a true blessing in this arctic tundra I that I now live in. herbivorebotanicals Emerald Cannabis Sativa Deep Moisture Glow Oil: This green goddess has quickly become one of my favorite oils ever. Beyond the beautiful hue, this oil contains some amazing ingredients that truly help to soothe irritated skin. The lightweight oil is formulated with hemp seed oil, squalane, and meadowfoam seed oil. It really helps with redness and definitely locks in moisture. Say what you will about overly hyped cannabis/hemp products, but this one really works for me. olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme: Anytime I post a picture with this eye cream, I get quite a few questions about it. So, why do I love it? For one, the texture. This Vitamin C collagen-boosted lightweight cream sits so beautifully under my concealer. It absorbs quickly, yet leaves my under-eye feeling completely moisturized. At first, I didn’t notice any sort of brightening effect. Overtime, I have definitely seen a overall brightening of my eye area. freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser: This cult favorite cleanser is highly regarded for a reason. It gently dissolves makeup without drying my skin. Beyond cleansing, it leaves my skin feeling plump with each use. Borage seed oil, rosewater, and amino acid-rich soy proteins promote balance and elasticity. It’s so simple, yet effective.
