Clean Beauty......

To me clean beauty has been the #1 focus for my skincare, Haircare and makeup routine. For over a year now I always look for the “clean at Sephora” tag, clean or natural wording on a product or shop at my local clean beauty/health food store. So you would think I’m a big advocate right? Surprisingly no. I don’t personally think “clean beauty” makes a difference. What really should be the focus is ingredients per person. Fragrance could be fine for one person, but irritate another. Dimethicone, octinoxate, phenoxyethanol or ascorbic acid can irritate some skin and be fine for others. Pineapple, cantaloupe, lemon, lavender can be saviours for some and terrifying for others. So clean beauty is about not using the nasties or maybe using more natural ingredients and while that could be a saving grace for someone it can also be unnecessary and less effective for someone else. I would rather see things like “fragrance free” “silicone free” “essential oils free” so that people can more clearly target their issues instead of just trusting a blanket term. ✌🏻

Mix & match: retinol + HA 💦
Retinol can be quite drying and irritating when you’re first getting on it so it’s important to have the right products to prevent some of that dryness. My favorite to counteract the irritation from retinol is hyaluronic acid, I love to use an essence because it’s light enough so that the retinol can still penetrate through and helps skin retain moisture to help with retinol-induced dryness. This duo is amazing! The COSRX - Cosrx Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence is just an incredible product that I’ve mentioned time and time again. It just works and lasts forever, I apply it after spritzing my face with the YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha these three just work wonders together. Now the star of this trio is the SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum I love it because even tho it isn’t prescription strength it’s effective and does wonder for skin. I think it’s great if you’re in your late 20’s and starting to get into preventive anti-aging skincare.

•Adaptogen soothe + hydrate activated mist: a very fine hydrating mist. I use this as a toner and love how it makes my skin look!⁣⁣ ⁣ •Kale + green tea spinach vitamins superfood cleanser: this is my new favorite cleanser! It cleanses my skin without drying it out! ⁣⁣ ⁣ •Kombucha + 11% AHA exfoliating power toner: I use this toner every other night and I wake up with such nice bright skin! One of the few toners I feel actually does something. It does apply slightly sticky but when I put all my other products on it goes away. ⁣⁣ ⁣ •Adaptogen deep moisture cream: I’ve only tried this out a few time so I don’t have a full opinion yet but it definitely felt lightweight and sunk into my skin nicely. ⁣⁣ ⁣ •Superberry hydrate + glow dream mask: this is by far my favorite night mask. It makes my skin so hydrated and glowy. ⁣ These are all super star products and essentials in my skincare routine! I recommend these products 100%!

The Superberry Hydrate + Glow
The Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask is truly a dream I have been a fan of this since the moment I used it. I love to use this at night in place of my moisturizer when I’ve been having a really tough skin day. I wake up in the morning glowy and refreshed! The Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil is packed with good for the skin antioxidants, hydrating ingredients, fatty acids and vitamin c. I started using this after I purchased the mask and have been loving these two together! This is lightweight and absorbs super quickly and I always feel like my skin gets the nutrients it needs. The Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream is something I still need to test out I have so many moisturizers at the moment and want to finish up another one before I try this beauty. I love what I have tried from this brand and I can’t wait to try more!

Here's some pink products I've
Here's some pink products I've been loving! I just recently tried the drunkelephant baby facial last Sunday, omg it's amazing. My skin was so smooth afterwards I can't wait to use it again this weekend. It was so gentle on my face and I was so impressed with my skin the next morning after using it. wander beauty glow ahead illuminating face oil is so beautiful, it has a pretty sheen to it once on the skin. Another thing that I really love about it is the brilliant packaging for this facial oil! It's just genius and the applicator is so perfect so not too much comes out at a time. It leaves the skin so glowy and it looks beautiful under makeup or without any makeup on. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Another brand I recently discovered is beladoce skin. I decided to try the subscription box. The products in this box were from the cherry collection. Omg these products are fabulous. The cream is lightweight but so hydrating and did I mention it smells so good. The Doce serum is really lovely as well, it's a great plumping & hydrating serum. Leaves the skin so smooth and the scent of cherries lingers just slightly and I really love it. I cannot wait to try more from the brand. They make fantastic skincare 🤩. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The purcosmetics X Barbie collaboration came out with this amazing HOT PINK peel off mask. It's a wonderful peel off mask, it smells really nice and fresh. I'm not the biggest fan of peel off masks. But with that being said this mask really is nice. My skin was so smooth after taking the mask off. I can't wait to try it again. It's definitely a fun collaboration theme. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Sunday night routine!
Sunday night routine!
My agenda for tonight: bubble bath + #babyfacial 💓 then a mixture of #vmo + #fbalm to hydrate my skin for the week 💦 Sunday’s are my favorite because I set aside time each Sunday night for self care {which is skin care for me} and I get recharged for the upcoming week! This coming week I start school back and I have a very heavy load this semester so self care Sunday’s will definitely be mandatory 👏🏽

Some newbies in no particular
Some newbies in no particular theme ▪️Laneige Cica Sleeping Mask. Curiosity won & I ordered this from Korea. Not sure if it’s coming to the states or when. This has a nice thick texture it could sub for a night cream. Cica is just another name for centella asiatica or gotu kola. Same anti-inflammatory, soothing & healing ingredient ▪️Tom Ford Emotionproof Eye Color. I grabbed a few shades as a Platinum is my all time fav cream eyeshadow. These ones are creamy and do not budge all day. They’re more creamy than the original Tom Form ones & the Chanel Ombré Premiere. The colors are pretty deceiving on the swatches online FYI ▪️5YINA Enlighten Spring Beauty Oil & Hydrolat I’ve been loving this brand for the last year and I’ve already run through a mini set of their seasonal oils. I’m excited to try the hydrolat as I hear it’s phenomenal. Their oils have a really nice quality texture & innovative ingredients ▪️Glow Recipe Pineapple-C Bright Serum & Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist. I just like to play with it. The bottles are super cute and the mist is so fine. I love the watermelon scent ▪️Fresh Beauty Sake candle Peach nectar, mandarin & Chinese osmanthus for a perfect scent

Youth to the People can do no wrong! I first found out about this brand through Instagram/Sephora. What drew me towards this brand is their ethos! They are: - cruelty free - vegan - use sustainable packaging (glass jars, - one world to protect - involved in social issues eg: LGBTQ community, ocean clean ups - celebrate inclusivity and positivity The ingredients they focus on on their products stood out to me! The very first product I tried is their Superfood Cleanser. I remember turning to this cleanser when I had reacted to a product and this cleanser instantly soothed my skin! I have been using g it ever since! The notable ingredients in the cleanser are: kale, green tea and spinach! The next product I tried was their Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream - this is my HOLY GRAIL summer/day time moisturizer as it does t make me feel oily! Superberry Hydrate and Glow Oil was the next product I tried! I loved how it absorbs easily into the skin! I had won the Superberry Hydrate and Glow Dream Mask! I loved how it made my skin feel nourished and moisturized overnight and the next morning after! YTTP recently gifted me their Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream and the Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist - my first impressions of these two: I love it! Any surprise there?! The way the mist just lightly sprays onto your face feels like luxury! The cream is super moisturizing and nourishing! I’d like to try their Kombucha Power Toner, Superfood Face Mask and Superfood Peptide Eye Cream! All that’s left for them is to make a sunscreen 😉 Not only does YTTP make beautifully formulated products, they do so considering the environment and ingredients they use. They don’t only care about making a profit but making a difference in the world!
