I’m just trying to better my skin
Good oil cleanser
The oil cleanser is great and easily takes away my makeup but I would not recommend using it alone because it will block your pores and make you feel yucky. A plus though is that it’s very gentle and if you accidentally get it in your eyes it won’t sting and you’ll be able to easily wipe away your eye makeup. Always follow up with a bubble cleanser or something to take the oil out and really prep your skin for serums and moisturizer though the one I use is in the picture but I couldn’t find the tag for it.
íUNIK-Calendula Complete Cleansing Oil
I really like the colors and I use it fairly often. I think it’s worth it to buy, but there are better palettes for sure. It’s nothing revolutionary but it works and the colors pop.
Too Faced-Natural Lust Naturally Sexy Eyeshadow Palette
It’s soooooo cool. You put it on your face and it goes from a cream to almost like this watery liquid, it’s incredible. It’s also really light and moisturizing. It’s an experience every skin deserves to try.make p:rem - Hydrate Me Micro Tension Cream

This mask is thicc with two c’s. I use it from time to time and would recommend but my skin is naturally oily and sometimes I’m really lazy and leaving this on a bit too long can cause really bad acne and clogged pores.

Great Pick Me Up
I use this as a pick me up on days I don’t wear much makeup and I think it’s great. It makes your skin look super glowy and fresh after applying. I think it’s perfect for just about anyone, just remember that you have to shake it first before spraying your face.

Daily Face Sunscreen
It’s a perfect everyday face sunscreen for people who feel like sunscreen is normally too thick. It’s very light and feels more like a moisturizer than a sunscreen. I think this would be a great add on to anyone’s routine.

Battle of the Hyped Sunscreens
My skin type is combo oily that can lean more dry during the weather changes or just randomly. My skin concerns are acne, oiliness throughout the day and also dehydration. I’ve ranked these popular hyped sunscreens based on how they worked for me personally (going from favorite to least favorite). My favorite is Unseen because it’s a primer and sunscreen in one, is lightweight and I haven’t had an issue with pilling. I prefer SPF 40 or higher. . Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 Key Ingredients: Complex Derived from Meadowfoam Seed (increases hydration levels), and Red Algae (helps protect against blue light emitted by electronic devices). Texture/Consistency: Gel Scent: None Price: $34 for 1.7 oz / 50 mL Experience: Is designed to be used as a primer, makes it quicker to get ready. It feels so lightweight, I can’t even tell that I’m wearing it throughout the day, doesn’t pill or make me oily. Repurchase/Recommend?: Yes, I definitely am going to purchase the full size of this! It simplifies my routine and lightweight. . Supergoop! - Play Everyday Lotion 50 Default Title Key Ingredients: Sunflower Extract (protects your skin from external environmental elements) and Rosemary Leaf Extract (has a calming effect on the skin and is rich in antioxidants). Texture/Consistency: Lotion Scent: None Price: $32 for 5.5 oz / 162 mL OR $58 for 18 oz / 532 mL Experience: It was too heavy on top of a moisturizer and made me look greasy, but applied by itself it was lovely (have a glow, but wasn’t too heavy). It also doesn’t pill when I put my makeup on. Repurchase/Recommend?: Yes, it would be more for people with dry skin, but it’s moisturizing enough to act as my moisturizer too so I apply it by itself (or on top of serum). . FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 Key Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (physical sunscreen that helps filter harmful UV rays) and Alteromonas Ferment Filtrate and Vitamin E (both help protect against environmental aggressors). Scent: None Texture/Consistency: Liquidy Price: $34 for 1.5 oz / 44 mL Experience: I love that this is tinted, it doesn’t leave a white cast at all! It is lightweight, easily sinks in, and doesn’t make me oily throughout the day. It also doesn’t pill at all, so easy to put makeup on after. Repurchase/Recommend?: Maybe, I just wish it was a higher SPF. . DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 Key Ingredients: Zinc Oxide (physical sunscreen that protects from harmful rays) and Algae Extract and Sunflower Sprout Extract (both protect against free radical damage). Scent: None Texture/Consistency: Lightweight Cream Price: $36 for 2 oz / 60 mL Experience: It feels heavy and doesn’t sink in all the way, plus pilled and made my CC Cream look cakey and terrible. Repurchase/Recommend?: No, it pilled badly and doesn’t work well with makeup on me.
Supergoop!-Play Everyday Lotion 50 Default Title
Another low-pH cleanser to add to my list! the purito Defense Barrier pH cleanser and I was happy to find out that it has a pH of 5.5. This is a gently foaming gel cleanser that leaves my face feeling clean but not stripped. It has a mild herbal scent and a pretty simple ingredients list that includes a gentle surfactant derived from coconut (cocamidopropyl betaine), royal jelly, and tea tree extract. I personally find this very similar to the Cosrx Good Morning Gel Cleanser in its texture and foaming ability, even down to the tea tree scent. I haven't used the Cosrx in a while so didn't get a chance to test them alongside each other, but I do believe they are quite similar. This is also very reasonably priced and would be a great gentle cleanser if you don't want to spend a ton of money.
