Honest Beauty & I Dew Care!
My skin care journey has not been easy or CONSISTENT. When I truly started caring what I put on my face I learned that finding out what is in products is important, especially if I was going to start being consistent. With a little bit of prayer and a solid skin care routine my face has increasingly started getting better. Letting my love for skin care take its course and venturing into different products! Honest Beauty Gentle Gel Cleanser- I have been through the bad products and the good products. This by far is one of my favorites especially for my combination skin. Not too drying and the scent is very relaxing. This is cruelty free and free of any synthetic fragrance or parabens. I use this morning and night! I Dew Care Yoga Kitten Balancing Heartleaf Clay Mask- BEST mask I have tried so far. I haven’t tried many but definitely plan too. This is a perfect texture and dries pretty fast. The bits of real heartleaf make me excited to use this, but the outcome is even more exciting. Great for my redness and irritation due to acne and not to drying for my combo skin.

My “Ordinary” Journey
My skincare routine needed a revamp but I didn’t know where to start. I wanted to use products with good ingredients but I know many companies “green wash” to make you believe all their ingredients are great. I did lots of research and decided to give The Ordinary a try. A little background on my skin: I have aging skin (I’m pushing 38) and it’s been on the dryer side since having kids. I also tend to get peri-oral dermatitis every winter. Then of course, I still get occasional breakouts! Yay hormones 😜 In September, as I was running out of my current skincare products, I replaced them with The Ordinary. I chose HONEST - Gentle Gel Cleanser as I didn’t want anything to harsh or stripping on my dry skin. After I cleanse, I mist my face with HERITAGE STORE - Rosewater Spray then apply The Ordinary - Matrixyl* 10% + HA Because this contains HA, it should be applied to damp skin. On top of that I apply The Ordinary - "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% I gave this 4 stars because it’s sooooo sticky and takes a while to dry down before I can move to my next step. After that drys, I go for The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I may not have clear skin all of the time, but when I do get blemishes, they clear up very quickly. This stuff is amazing! I follow that with The Ordinary - Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA and COOLA - Classic Full Spectrum 360 Sun Silk Drops SPF 30 Since starting this routine, my skin looks so much better when I apply makeup and when I don’t wear any, My skin tone much more even. And this year, as winter approached, I did not develop peri-oral dermatitis. My skin retains moisture so much better than it ever has.
Tretinoin and Spironolactone Progress July-Dec
I’m back! And wow what a difference! I’ve since switched upped my dosage to Apostrophe 0.05% tret with 4% Niacinimide cream forumula beginning in November. I’m also taking 50 mg of Spirinolactone now. My face has definitively gotten a lot drier, with some mild peeling throughout the day (any tips are welcome!) I’m going to see how waiting 15 mins before apply tret after moisturizer and 15 minutes after tret will work Overall, I feel like my forehead has a smoother texture, and I’m seeing less breakouts. I now definitely want to start working on reducing the appearance of my acne scars, but with my face so dry right now, I’m not sure if that’s an option. I’m going to wait a while and talk to my derm about adding in any actives. Also very sad about the Purito sunscreen scandal :-( Here’s my routine below: Morning (focus on hydration and barrier) CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence PEACH & LILY - Glass Skin Refining Serum HONEST - Hydrogel Cream BRUJITA - Hechizo Facial Serum BRUJITA - Vegan Crema Supergoop! - Glow Stick SPF 50 Night (applying tret nightly-wondering whether to reduce to every other day ) DHC - Deep Cleansing Oil HONEST - Gentle Gel Cleanser (or COSRX - Low PH Good Morning Gel Cleanser ) dear, klairs - Supple Preparation Unscented Facial Toner COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence HONEST - Hydrogel Cream Then putting BRUJITA - Vegan Crema on my driest areas Apostrophe Cream BRUJITA - Hechizo Facial Serum BRUJITA - Vegan Crema

I DEW CARE Yoga Kitten Mask
I used to be not a fan of clay masks, but this mask absolutely changed that for me! . Unlike other clay masks, this mask doesn’t turn into hard clay and dry out your face. It has amazing ingredients such as eucalyptus, tea tree extract and kaolin, all of which are amazing to calm and clear irritated and blemish prone skin. . Personally, my experience with this mask has been nothing but great. I use it at least once a week. I put a thick layer of it all over my skin and let it sit for 10 minutes, after which I wash it off with water. It does dry down, but it doesn’t dry down hard enough that I can’t move my face. As soon as I wash it off with water, I can see that my skin looks much more calmer, especially the redness around my breakouts. It doesn’t make my skin dry, or irritate it. . All in all, I absolutely love this mask and highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a product to tackle their acne. . . . gifted
👏🏼 this mask is a performer! please clap
lmao excuse the 2nd pic i finished up the tube before i could get a more aesthetic photo. so enjoy this throwback from an instagram story of mine 😅 god i love this mask. the mediterranean rose clay in this mask has bestowed magic upon me. ORIGINS - Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay 🌷PROS🌷 —————— • it breathes life back into tired and dull looking skin. • short drying time. a thin layer is all that’s needed! a little goes a long way • more gentle than most clay masks. i was able to use it basically everyday (unfortunately this routine is not recommended for sensitive skin) • kept my acne at bay. it was even able to smoothen out the lil pimple bumps on my forehead • always softened my skin and never left it feeling dry or tight 🥀CONS🥀 —————— nothing bad to say about it 🤷🏻♀️ this mask out performed other clay masks i have tried in the past in order to tame my super oily, acne prone skin. i am in love with it!

Youth to the people DETOX Mask
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Skin Reset Antioxidant Mask I’ve only had this mask for about a month and youth to the people is just always worth it. The mask itself is green as you can see and is the perfect consistency between thick and liquid. Very easy to apply and spread, I do feel some tingling once applied but nothing uncomfortable. It’s truly like a reset for your skin that detoxes and helps with impurities but doesn’t dry your skin out at all. My sensitive skin even uses this 2 times a week and I’m obsessed. It’s kind of pricey but you actually don’t need that much product and it’s so worth it. The first mask that works like a clay mask but doesn’t dry me out and leaves me hydrated. I recommend washing it off with a wash cloth since it’s just much easier. Totally underrated mask that everyone should try! Perfect for my acne prone, sensitive, combination skin!

✨ MíDFLOWER HA moisturizing mask review ✨
so. i really, really don’t like sheet masks and it’s probably mostly because they usually end up sliding down my face because i can never sit still. that being said, i do like this one. 🌸 skin info – combo, oily t-zone, somewhat acne prone, sensitive 🌸 price – 19.00 usd / 5 masks (via amazon) 🌸 first thoughts – i received 3 of these in a beauty subscription box and originally felt kind of milquetoast about it. but! having done my second TCA peel on tuesday, my skin has started to peel and had been feeling dry, so i decided to give it a whirl. like many other sheet masks i’ve tried, this one does slide but i’ve come to accept this as just a thing that’s gonna happen regardless. this mask smells SO good. it’s not a strong smell, but it smells and feels so fresh. it’s very saturated with the product, which i like. i read in a skincare subreddit about saving the extra product from sheet mask packaging and the OP had enough product to use for another treatment??? i wasn’t able to save the extra from this one because i didn’t have a jar on hand, but easily i could have enough essence for a second treatment. per instructions, i left on for 20 minutes (minimum) and wow. just wow. it felt cool and soothing. it almost was like i could feel it absorbing into my skin. upon removal, i patted the remaining essence into my skin and it was a little tacky at first but absorbed well. i followed up with a lightweight moisturizer, which i felt really sealed in the moisture from the mask. my face feels so plump and glowy now, which is hard for me to achieve! overall, i like this product. at this time, i won’t repurchase as i have 2 left. i recommend this for anyone doing at-home chemical peels when you need that extra hydration boost. 🌸 rating – 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Stop - matcha time!
PANTONE ▫️Pantone 14-1911 Rosewater Mist ▫️Pantone 14-3612 Rosehip Omega Face Oil ▫️Pantone 7493 Matcha Magic Super-Antioxidant Mask ▫️Pantone 9180 Resurfacing Treatment Toner & Peptide Trio Eye Cream ⚡️Matcha Magic Super-Antioxidant Mask is a winner! I’ve been using this for years and tried many masks in the meantime. Clay masks usually dry my skin out but this one doesn’t! It’s gentle enough to calm redness and strong enough to clear breakouts. I love a mask that allows me to knock out multiple issues in one session. I’ll get enough matcha but smearing this all over my face helps me feel like I’m living my best life. Stop— matcha time!

ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Charcoal Honey Mask to Purify and Nourish What is it? - A gentle, purifying mask that detoxes while nourishing skin, leaving it feeling comfortably clean, clear, and conditioned. What’s in it? - Formulated with Bamboo Charcoal, this purifying mask actively deep cleans & draws out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, impurities & debris. Golden Wildflower & Fermented Honey help nourish skin. - It’s formulated without parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, propylene glycol, mineral oil, DEA, petrolatum, paraffin, polyethylene beads, formaldehyde & animal ingredients* (*except cruelty-free honey & beeswax) How to use it- - Use once a week or as often as needed. Apply on clean face and allow to dry (approx 10 min). Rinse well. My review- - I have dry, sensitive, and acne-prone skin. I purchased this product before realizing how packed full of essential oils Origins products are, and how they can be harmful to the skin. However, I still really love their masks. First off, this mask smells absolutely amazing! It has a comforting, warm honey scent. The mask also has a gorgeous golden bronze appearance. I typically leave it on for 10 minutes. When I wash it off I’m left with smooth, hydrated skin. It really does what it says, it purifies and nourishes the skin! If you liked the pore-clearing of the effects of their original charcoal mask, but found it too drying, you should definitely try this mask!

🌞Versed Find Clarity Purifying Mask🌞
VERSED - FIND CLARITY Purifying Mask About me 🤗 and the product 🌞Skin type/skin tone I have combination skin. My skin tone is warm ivory with a slight reddish discoloration in my cheeks 🧐 🌞Product function The product claims to clear the pores while mildly exfoliating the skin by using ingredients such as clays and charcoals. The product is also completely non-toxic, vegan, cruelty-free, pregnacy-safe, and free of the bad things such as parabens, silicones, sulfates, and of course, animal testing. 🌞Texture/consistency The texture and consistency of the product is thick and creamy yet pretty spreadable. 🌞Packaging The packaging looks like a one use palstic packaging but this product actually has 12+ uses and has a plastic twist on cap that leaves the product clean and ready for another use. It is squeezable, making it slightly messy really prone to over-squeezing the product. I feel like the packaging is also extremely vulnerable to punctures😧? But haven't had any problems so far and its been a while. Beauty story📖 🌞Overall experience I bought this product along with another Versed Clay mask ( reviewed in another post) when I was going through the isles of Target 🎯 (no surprise). What caught my attention was the interesting packaging and the simple yet pleasing packaging. Picking up the product and seeing that it has such a great formula led me to purchase it right away! I loved seeing that its free of parabens, silicones, sulfates, and 1300+ other toxins. I incorporated this into my skincare regime and used it twice a week. It applies so smoothly onto the skin and can be used either as an overnight spot treatment for pimples or used on wet skin as a clay cleanser which I found out works great for oily skin! 🌞Verdict ❤️💔 I really enjoy using this product since it is so easy to apply due to the creamy and smooth consistency. It also feels so soothing and refreshing on the face! In my opinion, I feel like this product is slightly hard to wash off though since it is pretty creamy🙄. I did feel like it slightly calmed inflamed skin such as some pesky pimple but didn't completly get rid of some.🤷🏻♀️ 🌞Recommend?✅❎ After using this product for several times, I do feel like this clay mask is not as strong as other clay masks that claims to purify and cleanse the pores. I would recommend this product to all skin types but more for people with problem skin since it does help a bit with the redness of some pimples. I would also recommend this product if all you're looking for a is light cleanser that feels calming and smooth. Even though this product does get rid of some sebum and oils, I feel like it is still okay to use if you have dry skin since it doesn't overly dry up the skin. I used this product for several times and never had any issues with breaking out nor had any problems with my sensitive skin. My skin did not become irritated after using this product. I would not really recommend this product to people who are looking for a strong clay mask that would strip everything off your face though since it is pretty gently on the skin. 🌞Worth it?💰 This product retials for $9.99 for 1.5 fl oz/45 mL. I feel like for the price, this product is worth it. Even though it is not as strong as the BCL Clay mask that I reviewed in previous posts, it is a nice little essential to have if youre on the go and have a little pimple here and there and have some excess dirt or sebum.

My Mental Wellness Improved Through My Self AcceptanceWhen I was around 13 or 14 years old, I remember routinely taking one of my older sister’s black eyeliner pencils before school every morning. I’d arrive early so that I could slip away to the girl’s bathroom to apply a single black line to my eyelids. My parents didn’t allow me to wear any makeup at the time. Although this smudgy line on my eyelids didn’t make me look all that much different, I never felt comfortable at school without it. My teenage mind convinced myself that I needed some sort of cosmetic symbol in order to appropriately express my femininity. Up until that point in my life, society had told girls that looked like me - tall, Black, and with kinky hair - that we somehow weren’t as beautiful as the other girls. For far too long, I believed it too.Feb. 17
