HONEY MADE MY ACNE AND ECZEMA GO AWAY!
ACNE. DRY SKIN. DARK SPOTS. Meet your match. HONEY. I suffer from eczema on my face and cystic acne, but with the use of products with honey in it, I am able to keep both my eczema and acne at bay. I’ve noticed glowing skin and a clear and even complexion from a year of using honey based products. WHY HONEY?
It’s a natural humectant so it helps absorb and retain moisture.

Dry and eczema-prone skin

abbie_cokerWould you say the exfoliator is pretty gentle or more invigorating? I’m new to exfoliating so I have a hard time finding a physical one that doesn’t irritate my skin! ✨

honeybriHi! Yes it is very gentle. The scrub breaks down as you use it and it basically feels like a soft serum feel. You’ll feel it on your skin after like you just applied a moisturizer or serum. My skin feels so soft and hydrated after.

ACNE WHO? 3 PRODUCTS TO HELP CLEAR YOUR SKIN.
These 3 products saved my skin from hormonal acne. Once upon a time I had perfect skin and I’m talking glossier model type skin.. WELP it all changed at 24 for me. I started to go through serious health problems and it eventually showed in my skin. I could feel the shift in my body and hormones and that’s when the cystic acne started to appear. I started breaking out and had no idea what to do and felt like I had tried everything until I came across these holy grail products: BLUME - Meltdown Oil for Acne-Prone Skin An oil for acne prone skin that helps to clear breakouts, calm inflammation, prevent scars, and shrink those pores! - does it really work? - DUH! I would not be giving it 5 stars if it didn’t! Nothing disappears right away, but give it a month and all those pesky breakouts will be smaller and clear skin will be on its way! + a little goes a long way + comfortable oil that absorbs well + use AM or PM (I prefer PM) + natural frangrance + clean + vegan!

My skin has never been so clear since I started using these products.
Today I'm sharing with you all an oil from dewy&bae that has a special place in my heart. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This oil is so lightweight but very hydrating all at once. It soaks into the skin pretty quickly I noticed and it pairs well with all my other skincare products. A little bit goes such a long ways. I've been using this oil for a little over 2 weeks. This oil contains Chlorophyll, which is derived from Alfalfa sprouts, is a powerful blemish banisher and wound healer full of vitamins A, C, E and K. This would make sense why its been working so well on my skin. I've been having some minor breakouts and this oil is really helping heal them right up. The oil also contains squalane which is amazing because it doesn't clog the pores. It also contains neroli oil which is derived from the blossoms of the bitter orange tree, is a luxurious antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic oil. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This oil works so well on my combination / sensitive skin. It doesn't have much of a scent which I also really like. The packaging is again really nice, it's glass and looks so luxurious. I would highly recommend checking out this oil if you love facial oils. This one is definitely an amazing one to try out. I think it would be great for all skin types because it's so gentle. I can definitely see a glow in my skin after just applying this after cleansing if I decided to skip some of my steps. You definitely cannot tell with this oil it's that good. 💚 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
DEWY&BAE-RAW GLOW Nourishing Facial Oil Serum
Biossance tea tree oil
BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil This facial oil is targeted for all skin types who have concerns with blemishes, pores, and redness. It is formulated with tea tree oil, squalane, and rosemary to purify, calm, lock in moisture, and prevent oxidation. I found this oil to be very lightweight and when used on active blemishes, it helped to reduce redness and size. I didn’t see any difference in pore size. It has a very earthy and fresh smell which I loved. I am happy I was able to try a sample of this, because while I liked it, I don’t think I would spend $49 on it. I only use this at night and only when I felt like I needed it for an active blemish or redness. However, I found it mostly effective for what it claims, so if you are willing to spend the money, I would give it a try!
BIOSSANCE-Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil
Gorgeous Face Oil✨
This is the Leah Rose + Glow Facial Oil. It is meant to hydrate skin and brighten skin. Some key ingredients are squalane, Vitamin C and oils. I have combo skin and adore this. This is a stable form of vitamin c that can be mixed with other forms of that vitamin and even retinol. I also adore squalane for its anti-aging and oil control properties and for helping eczema and acne. The texture of this is a little thick but doesn’t feel that way on the skin at all. It’s smooth on application and goes on clear. I noticed a brighter glow in the morning after my first use and that my acne scars had faded a lot. This hydrates gorgeously and makes skin feel really smooth and the ingredients list is gorgeous. It’s also vegan and cruelty free! Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ LEAH - ROSE+GLOW FACIAL OIL

“I’d rather get coal than”
“I’d rather get coal”than K Beauty brand, Dr. Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Serum. I was so enthusiastic to finally own a Dr, Jart product. I wanted to see what all the internet hype was about. Tiger Grass Serum, sounds fancy right!!??? Let me tell you about this serum before I go into what it did for my skin. As someone that struggles with hormonal cystic acne. I have a lot of scaring & hyperpigmentation. This serum is labeled as a “light” serum for oily, normal, dry, & combo skin types. It is a highly potent serum used to help with dryness and redness. It’s supposed to soothe & repair damaged skin as well as improving skins defensive against irritation & damage. Let me just tell you, never in my life have I used a product that is not an acid treatment & felt like my skin was on fire! As soon as I applied this my face turned the deepest red... I could not wash it off quick enough, then when I tried to soothe my skin with other products I was unsuccessful. Just to make sure it wasn’t only me that felt this burning before I gave a negative review, I tried it on my fiancé as well. He wasn’t too happy with the burning either.. being my guinea pig LOL. For a product that is supposed to soothe the skin it did the polar opposite for me. I only had it on for a few minutes severely broke out, which is a big deal for me bc cystic acne is no joke. It took almost 2 weeks for my face to clear up. Also, I do not understand why this is labeled as a lightweight serum in my opinion it’s very heavy I also don’t like the scent. I privately messaged the company & went to their Instagram page commenting under “tiger grass serum”photos asking if the burning sensation is normal, I did not get any reply back from the Dr. Jart brand. Dr. Jart+ - Cicapair Tiger Grass Serum
Dr. Jart+-Cicapair Tiger Grass Serum
It has a special oil-absorbing complex called Sepicontrol A5 which helps decrease shine, keep your complexion clear, balanced, and healthy. Has mixes of hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to sooth and relieve acne, witch hazel to tighten pores, also packed with natural botanicals like cinammon and ginseng extracts as well as vitamin C to fade dark spots. - This is targeted for people with oily or acne-prone skin but personally I feel like it’s great for sensitive types as well since t’s lightweight and mineral oil-free. This watery gel-cream moisturizer has been greatly helping me at balancing out my oil production while still nourishing my skin. Haven’t seen any fading of my dark spots but maybe with continued use there will be? Gonna have to get back on that!
I started using Mario Badescu products about 6 months ago due to the hype. I was not a conscious skincare shopper and thought it was something new to try. With my new knowledge of ingredients, certain chemicals in these products can harm you! This company uses a lot of dyes and fragrance to make the product look prettier, but it leads to congestion, dryness, and acne in the long run. I try to stay away from those but they smell really good! MARIO BADESCU - Healing & Soothing Mask This mask is an exception from what I said there^ . This mask does a great job at drying acne and making them go away in a couple days. It has niacinamide (my favorite for managing oil and sebum production), Zinc, AHA, BHA, Sulfur, and other seed extracts and I just love it. MARIO BADESCU - Enzyme Cleansing Gel First of all, this cleanser smells like papayas and it tastes good if is drips in your mouth from washing. But, it didn’t do much for my skin. I really didn’t see an improvement of dullness, acne, oil production, and texture at all. I use it sometimes in the morning to attempt at brightening my tired ass, but I’ve never been too impressed. MARIO BADESCU - Special Cucumber Lotion I REALLY don’t like this product. It is not hydrating, in fact, it made my combo skin dryer, it has multiple dyes in it, fragrance, alcohol, you name it. I didn’t see an improvement in my occasional breakouts, in fact I think it made them more irritated. Don’t recommend MARIO BADESCU - Witch Hazel & Lavender Toner I mean, it’s aight. It’s your standard wit hazel, but with added alcohol and fragrance. It’s fine for every once in a while but not every day. MARIO BADESCU - Vitamin C Serum I liked this serum. It’s helped with my dark circles A TON and same with my hyperpigmentation. Definitely recommend. MARIO BADESCU - Seaweed Night Cream Didn’t dig it. It did hydrate my skin for sure, but made it a little too greasy for my liking. It also has alcohol and fragrance and I didn’t like that either for my sensitive skin.
