Has anyone actually found a dupe for this?
I love this eye brightener. It’s the one product i splurge on, and I have tried various other brands and they either pull my eyelid too much or the color is off. This one is gentle and stays on all day!

SKINCARE REVIEWS - The Ordinary Peeling Solution
The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution There have been many reviews on this product and its become one of the most hyped up skincare products of 2020 so I thought I’d join in and share my thoughts. I absolutely love this peeling solution, and its definitely an amazing exfoliating mask, but there are a few risks associated with using a mask with such a high acid concentration. In terms of the results that I’ve had from this product, its not a miracle worker. Its pretty close, but definitely not it. I’ve had some texture on my nose for quite some time, but unfortunately this was not the solution to that despite how much I wanted it to be. On the other hand, its done a fantastic job helping heal my acne scars and smoothed my skin. My concern with this mask is some people have been using it irresponsibly and this can lead to serious burns. Prior to using it, I would ensure that your skin is not sensitive and that you’re accustomed to active ingredients. I would definitely recommend patch testing with this product. Therefore, I think this product is great for people who want the results of daily exfoliation but cannot exfoliate daily or want quick results. However, I think The Ordinary should be more responsible about ensuring this product is used correctly and safely. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this product!

Keracare Shampoo and Conditioner
Shampoo and conditioner is like the foundation to a good wash n’ go. It’s always hard for me to find a shampoo that doesn’t dry out my hair, and a conditioner that actually moisturizes. The Keracare Curlessence Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner really surprised me in those departments. The shampoo didn’t leave my hair brittle, and the conditioner made my curls super soft. I found that my hair was moisturized and soft even after rinsing out the products! This company sent me these products for PR. I don’t know too much about the ingredients, but I know they are sulfate and paraban free. This was my first time using these products and I definitely l will be reaching for them more often. I used the conditioner as a deep conditioner by leaving it in for five minutes and putting on a shower cap. I noticed that this made the conditioner a lot more effective and locked in the moisture for a lot longer. This is a product I would re-purchases because it is affordable and great for curly hair!KERACARE - CurlEssence Moisturizing Shampoo

All my fave serums
It’s been one ENTIRE month of using the revolution serums and it’s time for my thoughts! ——— In order of most fave to least fave: 1) 10% niacinamide + 1% zinc ($7, 1oz) - Used 2x daily, I relied on this to control my bacterial acne, and it did. When I went off Curology, I had a few red bumps which this serum helped to calm. It definitely reduced my oil production. It’s the stickiest out of the group, and depending what oil you put on top, it MAY pill. But, I loved it and am almost out! 2) 5% lactic acid + hyaluronic acid ($7, 1oz) - A mild exfoliator, perfect for those starting with acids. It’s not sticky and layers well. I love the added HA and feel it does a good job layering in hydration. 3) 30% AHA + BHA peeling solution ($10, 1oz) - Used 10-15min 1x a week, so 4x last month. My skin can handle a strong acid, so this was perfect for me when I needed extra exfoliation. A little goes a long way. Definitely a staple now! 4) 5% caffeine + hyaluronic acid undereye serum ($10, 1oz) - Used 2x a day under eye cream. Sadly I don’t think this helped my dark circles, but it does provide instant hydration and reduces puffiness. Not sticky and layers well. While I love layering, I don’t feel this is necessary, but I’m extra af so I don’t mind lol. 5) EGF skin conditioning serum ($14, 1oz) - EGF is a protein that naturally occurs in the skin. Tbh, I didn’t use this much because I use other hydrating and firming products. However, that’s not to say I didn’t like it - it worked well. I just didn’t use it consistently enough. 6) Superfruit extract antioxidant serum primer ($14, 1oz) - This didn’t impress me, and I prefer other primers for my oily skin. It has fragrance and mica listed on the top of the list before any of the antioxidants. Dry skin people may enjoy this! 7) Rosehip seed oil gold elixir ($14, 1oz) - If you are looking for pure rosehip seed oil, don’t pick this up. The ingredients won’t do much for your skin. I already have a rosehip oil Iove, so I didn’t use this. Overall, I was pleased and would say this was a success!

Does this $10 cult favorite mask actually work?
I tried the AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay and here’s what happened: This mask is easily a 5/5 ⭐️ because 👏🏽 it👏🏽 works👏🏽 And it’s $10! 🥄 I mixed equal parts Bentonite Clay with apple cider vinegar (you can also use water) to create what looks like paste. It will start to bubble and pop 💥 ⏰ The label recommends those with sensitive skin only leave the mask on for 10 minutes and up to 20 minutes for other skin types. 🧖🏽♀️ As the mask dries it changes color and begins to tighten. You will feel your skin becoming tighter and tighter until the mask begins to crack. It’s a little aggressive, but totally worth it. 🥵 Redness is to be expected after removal. As you can see in my photo, I have a bit of activation all around my face. I recommend using a warm wash cloth to help loosen some of the clay. 🗓 I imagine this mask does wonders to clear up acne and prevent break outs. I look forward to using it weekly. 👍🏽 You can also mask other parts of your body! Apparently this is a great combo for armpit detox (who would have thought 🤷🏽♀️). ☝🏽Pro tip: If you’re sensitive or just want to spot treat, use the mask in your t-zones to avoid over irritation to the cheek area. ⚠️ I do not recommend using this if your skin is dry or patchy. Clay draws out toxins and can be intense for skin that’s on the dry side or patchy.
