✨ i need the dew
Akar Eye Serum
This is one my all time favorite eye serums I’ve ever tried! Akar is a cruelty free brand, vegan, and doesn’t use any fillers, water, or synthetics in their formulas. The consistency is a lightweight oil that’s soaks in fast. It’s very hydrating and I’ve gone through at least one bottle but it took me awhile to do it bc it last so long. Targets: dryness, fine lines, dullness I would recommend this one all skin types. I would definitely re-purchase in the future. I also used to mix a little retinol in with it for extra oomph. It is a bit pricey but when you consider the formula and how tiny an amount it takes I do believe the price is justified. It leaves the eye area very hydrated and fine & wrinkles are plump and less noticeable! Love it!
🥀Happy Friday Junior!! In this industry it’s constantly evolving and new formulas / ingredients are coming out to give us great skin. Some work & some don’t. Out of the products above,I think it’s a given I’m a @drunkelephant user & they are still in my collection. Why? Because they work for me simple as that. I don’t care about packaging & looks as much as I do ingredients & affordability! 💘 @coola has also put out some great sunscreens this year. My favorite is the silk drop (pink bottle) it’s a serum spf with a slight oiliness to it that helps with the dew I really took it. As for oily girl maybe the white bottle one is more for you! 🤍 @kosascosmetics came through with some wonderful lipsticks that have magnetic tops and the comfort of a balm! 🌙 @farmacybeauty Dream mask was number one UNTIL F-Balm came out, but before you get your panties in a bunch they are BOTH number one for different reasons. Dream mask is very brightening while providing an even tone & suppleness to my skin. It even plumps my lips on the outer edges. I’m so in love with this one!! 🐘Drunk elephants FBalm retailing at $52 and hits the shelves Jan. 1 is one of the most hydrating mask I’ve ever used. The only thing constant in my routine is the @purito_official Centella toner. It’s ph 5.5 & watery consistency. I pat this into my skin (after cleanse) until my skin stops soaking it up. Then, I continue with the rest of my routine & layer FBalm last. I absolutely love it imo. 🍭 @trulybeauty just keeps impressive me every year! Great formulas, ingredients & packaging! I still use the CBD whipped body butter daily!! It’s an absolute dream!! 💧 @ledewbeauty I have a soft spot for their Baby Smooth,, it works overnight & very well! I use their hydrating mist all day it’s amazing!! I now want their Zcreme!!! (affordable oftions) 🍃 Cbd products @saintjanebeauty is an excellent choice clean luxury with numerous awards (link in bio) and @thelordjones has really impressed me with the oil for tech neck.

Donna Karen’s Cashmere Mist I know what you’re thinking, “really, deodorant?” But this isn’t just any deodorant. The first time I smelled it was on my mother the year it was released. It had to be 15 years ago. Yes, that long and yes we’re getting old. It has a very soft fragrance that lasts all day and I’ve been wearing it ever since. It has a comforting smell to it and I may be biased but it reminds me of my mom and now it’s my signature comfort zone when it comes to deodorant and scents for that matter. It has memories and it’s part of me. It fascinates me how smells can evoke memories and feelings. Scent: Moroccan jasmine, luxurious cashmere fabric, sandalwood, amber and vanilla.
SKINMEDICA HA5 REJUVENATING REVIEW I’ve been testing the skinmedica HA5 that retails for 178$ for a 2 oz. bottle. It has 5 hyaluronic acids. Key ingredients are: hyaluronic acid, peptide complex, & vitamin e. However, dimethicone is second on the list. Claims: To increase the water hydration in the skin, thus giving the appearance of younger skin. Application: After toner wet fingertips & apply the HA5 immediately before moisturizer. It has an odd smell of paint. Results: The smoothing benefits were immediate due to the silicone in it & it does feel like pure silicone. It leaves that silky, velvety feel behind. After 20 mins that feeling is gone & it takes on a more tacky feel, which I love! Final Outcome: In my opinion, it lives up to its claims, although I wasn’t wowed by it like I should be for 178$. I also don’t care for applying dimethicone (a lot of it) to my skin morning and night either. I have tried many other products with hyaluronic acid that hydrate me just as well without the dimethicone or heavy price tag. Hope this helps!
