FL☀️ Beauty Connoisseur💖 Welcome to my little spot🦋
Night Time Skincare Routine✨🦋
(MALIN+GOETZ) - Face Essentials Duo Set Set Great for traveling. Awesome price. Recommended for: normal to oily/acne prone skin. Aesop - In Two Minds Facial Toner Great for normal/dry to combo/oily (not acne prone imho) BURT'S BEES - Rosewater Toner not the one from the video but definitely a most have for acne prone skin and stubborn white/black heads or texture. One of my go to’s. The one I sprayed is called: ￼￼Rosense pure damascena water from Turkey; you can find it at TJ. Maxx or Marshall’s, maybe Amazon. ~Link Below~ Rosense Glass Bottle Rosewater Hydrating Facial Toner/Rose Water Face Mist 6.8 Oz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0787SVZCK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_HZIOEbBWC7YM9 CHANEL - LE BLANC ESSENCE LOTION Healthy Light Creator GOOD MOLECULES - Overnight Exfoliating Treatment I need to use it more but no breakouts or dryness/flakyness. GOOD MOLECULES - Niacinamide Serum Great value and sinks right in and it actually works and brightens the skin. FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry It works slowly but surely. Only thing is the price and the percentage of the Vitamin C, I wish that part (the percentage) was higher. Other wise very well formulated. I usually apply the Niacinamide serum and then the Vit C. 😊 Osmosis Beauty - Clarify - Blemish Retinal Serum LOVE IT😍😍😍 no flaking or drying out. Stings a bit the first times but it’s really tolerable. Really helps keep acne and hormonal breakouts away. CHANEL - BLUE SERUM Eye Revitalizing Serum Pricey hence why the minus star. I feel like it moisturizes w/o causing milia, keeps the eye area smooth, a little goes a looooong way, LOVE the packaging as it keep ingredients stable. Don’t know if it does anything for fine lines 🤷🏼♀️ CHANEL - LE LIFT Serum Really pricey ($175 for an oz.) that’s why I deducted a star. Packaging is great, sinks right in and I do feel a tightening effect and my forehead expression lines way smoother and firmer. Curél - Moisture Facial Milk Simple. Efficient. Easy. Minimal. Works. Keeps the skin barrier happy and protected with it’s ceramides and the consistency is definitely great as a summer moisturizer/emulsion (2 in 1)👌🏻! Perfect for normal/combo to combo/oily/acneprone skin types. Dry skin peeps can use it by incorporating an oil in it 😊 And my actual moisturizer: belif - The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb I wish it was packaged in one of those air tight pump jars/tubs so it would make it more hygienic and more ingredient friendly as to keeping them safely away from air and germs. Other than that this moisturizer not only moisturizes but hydrates. Lovely indeed✨ Hope you found it helpful, Xo Jen💕

Finishing my Aesop tryouts🧡
Aesop - Fabulous Face Cleanser I give it 3 stars as the price is not fabulous neither is the product. If you like the consistency I would buy Youth to the People Superfood cleanser. Aesop - Purifying Facial Exfoliant Paste I’ve tried many manual exfoliants and this is definitely up there with my HG’s, if not my holy grail! 😍😍😍 beautifully executed, the right amount of grittiness and smells so fresh and clean (herbally to be exact) I would even recommend it for sensitive, mature and dry skin. Great stuff✨👌🏻 Aesop - Blue Chamomile Facial Hydrating Masque Love that it comes in a pump as this makes it hygienic and mess free. Lovely soft smell, soothing really! It definitely does leave my skin visibly brighter and super soft when you take it off, which should be after 30 mins max, I did but used my Thayer’s cucumber rose toner and some Avené thermal water spray. It’s pricy that’s why I gave it 4 star as I am sure there are other things that can brighten up your skin. But if you want quality, mess free, not gooey feeling or like you can’t talk or move type of mask then this one is for you. Recommended even for my oily girls. (Not acne prone though). Aesop - Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Hydrator Fluid Moisturizer This product is soooo weird. I love the cleanser from the parsley line but this is just... 😐 meh. My skin felt good after I applied it (to try it out I only used my cherry bright Farmacy Vitamin C and my good molecules niacinamide which I left sink in, no other stuff). Then I applied the hydrator and it felt nice and smooth but wouldn’t sink in, it took forever to do so... I kept massaging and using my face roller and finally after 30 mins (no I didn’t massage or rolled for that long 😂) it sinked in. Problem is that it doesn’t really hydrate or moisturize... it left my skin feeling sticky and in need of moisture after one hour and a half. If your oily or combo leaning more towards oily it should work for you, but it’s not worth the price tag IMHO! Overall: I stand by my reviews and my ratings BUT thread carefully as it does contain essential oils and nut derivatives. The IN TWO MINDS line from them broke me out and I never get pimples on my cheeks only on my jaw and occasionally my nose. That range just did not work for me nor did the milk cleanser which would be good maybe for someone with really sensitive skin that doesn’t wear makeup. Any questions Just ask! Thanks for reading, Jen xo

Aesop two minds mini review ✨
Aesop - In Two Minds Facial Hydrator - Will update as I continue to use - Aesop - In Two Minds Facial Toner lovely ingredients, nice herbal scent, doesn’t sting or burn. Aesop - In Two Minds Facial Cleanser soft lather, doesn’t give a tight feeling but does leave skin feeling dry but at the same time soft. It’s like it sucks up your oils but the surface feels softened. It’s hard to describe! I do think oily/acne-prone skins can benefit from this cleanser. *beware of essential oil sensitivities* YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser Mini I wish it would lather more or that I would need less cleanser for it to cover my face and make it feel clean. Overall great cleanser, bought a second bottle! CHANEL - La Solution 10 de Chanel Simple, 10 ingredients only, great for sensitive, dry, mature or normal skin. Doesn’t clog pores, no scent, just a beautiful formula.

Nicotinamide——The natural treatment for our skin!
My skin can easily get darker and uneven because of the sunlight, and scars and marks are just taking too long to diminish, brightening is always something that I pay a lot attention in as I prefer lighter complexion. I’ve tried a lot of whitening products and the most common ingredients that will help lightens up your skin is nicotinamide! I guess most of you have heard about the praises of it. NEOSTRATA - Enlighten Illuminating Serum NEOSTRATA Illuminating Serum Nicotinamide is not the main ingredient of this one, but it contains a variety of ingredients with similar functions like acid and VC that help restore skin’s regeneration and melanin protection. This is especially great for healing after pimples. As attracted by the ingredients, I even use this serum for scar repair. I can feel my skin becomes smoother and stronger, and the nicotinamide makes the dark mark fades away faster. Incorporating this serum into daily skincare routine, you can use it to replace toner, and remember to use it nightly or use it with sunscreen! LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Duo Dual Acne Treatment LA ROCHE-POSAY Effaclar Duo (+) This one is designed for active pimples and reduce acne blemishes. This is only for topical use, yet I don't get pimples very often, so I didn't use it a lot. I don't know why, but I feel this product is a little bit irritative for me. Might because the percentage of acid is too high. If you are sensitive skin, start with a low-concentration one. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% THE ORDINARY Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Niacinamide is the main ingredient of it and the effect is evident! The previous two products focus more on topical whitening or acne repair, this one can be used for the overall face area and after finishing one bottle, it illuminates my dull and uneven skin tones! While this product has a relatively high percentage of niacinamide to 10%. The recommended way is to start with little amount and then gradually add usage. For sensitive skin, it’s better to do a topical allergy test before applying to your whole face.

This is my all-time, holy grail, ride or die serum...and I’m out 😭 Here’s a brief overview of my skin before I get into the product review: My skin is not problematic; I get a breakout during ‘that time’ of the month and I have a wee bit of redness in my cheek area. My skin is however incredibly, painfully dry. I can’t use anything that isn’t suitable for dry skin bc, if I do, my skin will feel like it going to crack. The Glass Skin Refining Serum ($39) created by Peach and Lily, is serum that I use every 👏🏻 single 👏🏻 day. I’m seriously bummed that I cannot go out an repurchase this atm. The cocktail of ingredients is amazing for people with incredibly dry skin - it is good for all skin types though. ✨ This serum has a hyaluronic acid complex that draws in hydration and deeply hydrates every single layer of my skin by using long-chain, medium-chain, and short chain hyaluronic acid. ✨ Peach and Lily included niacinamide; an ingredient used to reduce inflammation in the skin. Niacinamide, because it reduces inflammation, is a really amazing ingredient for people with ance-prone skin It’s also and antioxidant, so it’s also a wonderful anti-aging ingredient. When I use this product, my skin glows brighter and my skin feels bouncier! My skin drinks it up! I am constantly trying new skincare products, and I very rarely repurchase unless I am absolutely obsessed. This will be one of the first things purchase once quarantine lifts!

Some faves from Grown Alchemist// ▪️Age-Repair Eye Cream ▪️Hydra-Restore Cream Cleanser ▪️Hydra Repair Day Cream ▪️Polishing Facial Exfoliant ▪️Matte-Balancing Moisturizer ... This gorgeous brand focuses on creating botanical skincare that is clean, green and functional. All the products I have tried have a pleasant herbal smell. (No overpowering floral)... The Hydra-Restore Cream Cleanser left my face feeling moisturized and fresh. However, it did not take off my mascara as promised. For me, it works better as a second cleanse... The eye-cream was definitely my favorite! Maybe I like it even better than Drunk Elephant’s ctango 😬they serve different purposes so thankfully I will continue to use both and create my own “eye cream smoothie”. Grown Alchemist’s eye cream is definitely worth a try!
GROWN ALCHEMIST-Age-Repair Eye Cream
All the Urang products that I am using I genuinely love them. The Rose Ceramide cream is no different. This dense cream comes in a beautiful glass packaging with a super cute spatula (swipe for the picture). Like all Urang products the ingredients in this cream are high quality, natural, organic, safe, gentle and have received an EWG rating of 1. Notable ingredients include Organic Rose Water (33%), Betaine, Macadamia seed oil, Shea butter, Saccharomyces Ferment Filtrate, Soybean Ferment Extract, Sunflower seed oil, Jojoba seed oil, Ceramide NP, Rose flower oil and other plant and fruit extracts. The soothing , nourishing ingredients with the barrier protecting ceramides make up this a wonderful cream. The texture is smooth and creamy, appears dense but on application is non greasy and is absorbed instantly into your skin. It has a beautiful natural rose scent. A treat for all you rose lovers. This can be used as both an AM and PM moisturizer. This is available for $47/50ml.

I had read glowing reviews of atopalm products.I paid a trial fee to try their Moisturizing Eye Repair Serum. ✨Claims: A paraben free, unique, eye serum with multi-benefit, US Patented Multi Lamellar Emulsion technology containing concentrated infusions of specialty elements to help fight visible signs of aging and bolstered by plant derived ingredients, natural oils and plant extracts (from their website). ✨This serum has been repackaged and comes in a tube now instead of a pump. Packaging is functional. The serum has a lightweight gel like consistency, one that I prefer for my under eye area than a cream. I did not detect any fragrance. Key ingredients: Niacinamide and Licorice root extract for brightening Meadowfoam seed , Green tea seed and Grape seed oils - rich in antioxidants, nourishing and moisturizing Amino acids help diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles Ascorbyl Phosphate Succinoyl Pentapeptide-12 is a combination of Vitamin C and Peptide Fusion that defends against environmental stress (as per their website) ✨I have been using this serum for close to 2 weeks in my am and pm routines before using a facial oil / moisturizer. It sinks in instantly and moisturizes the under eye area well does not help with puffiness though. I use it even on my eye lids too. I do not use make up so I cannot comment on how well it works under make up. For now, I like the consistency and the new packaging of the serum and reach out to it everyday. That's a win because I tend to use face serums (excluding Vitamin C) and moisturizers and do not really remember to use a separate eye product. Since the claims indicate long term use, I will continue to use it for 8+ weeks and post an updated review if I do see changes in the appearance of fine lines 🤞🏽
