If you’re looking to have a good skin day with no make up this will be your best friend. If your you find your foundation is too light this is also the perfect solution!! First off, this product has lasted me sooooooo long. I’ve had it for at least a year and a half and it’s no where close to running out. I don’t use it ever day mind you but you only need the tiniest amount. You just blend it with your favourite moisturizer to give your face some colour! And you have full control over how much bronze colour you add which is awesome for girls who have really pale skin in the winter and tan in the summer. For me, this product gives my skin that finished look like I put make up on and gives my face just the right amount of colour and healthy glow without sticking out like something that’s not blended properly. It blends so smooth because it’s going on with your moisturizer. ( I use really light moisturizers with this so it is super easy to mix together such as DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream

Easy Breezy Minimalistic Look ✨
You know your skin is happy & healthy when no filter is needed! 𝒩𝑜 𝒻𝒾𝓁𝓉𝑒𝓇, 𝓃𝑜 𝑒𝒹𝒾𝓉𝒾𝓃𝑔 - just a couple quick iPhone portrait shots. I’m not a huge selfie kind of gal; I prefer to stay behind the camera but I felt put together for a change! I have minimal makeup on - this is an easy breezy routine that will embrace your natural skin. And YES, I know my eyebrows are way overdue for a waxing, but as someone with an autoimmune illness, my health comes first. 💞 𝒲𝒽𝒶𝓉 𝐼 𝒰𝓈𝑒𝒹 I double cleanse at night so in the morning, I go in with something super gentle to just refresh my skin and remove oil from my skin. So today I used Drunk Elephant’s E-Rase Milki and then 4-5 spritz of the new Sweet B mist. Then I mixed Protini & D-Bronzi, and applied Umbra Tinte for SPF. My skin was looking extra glowy today so to tone it down and reduce the appearance of my pores, I lightly went over with Girlactik’s Luminous Face Powder in Light with a big, fluffy powder brush. Then I used KVD Vegan Beauty’s Cake Pencil in Trooper & Thrive Causemetics’ Liquid Lash Extensions mascara. For the lips, I used Jeffree Star’s Velvet Trap in Celebrity Skin with Bite Beauty’s Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss in Cider Donut! ✨ DRUNK ELEPHANT - E-Rase Milki Micellar Water DRUNK ELEPHANT - D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops DRUNK ELEPHANT - Sweet Biome Fermented Sake Hydrating Spray DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 girlactik - Luminous Face Powder KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - Cake Pencil Eyeliner thrive causemetics - Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ JEFFREE STAR COSMETICS - Velvet Trap Lipstick BITE - Yaysayer Plumping Lip Gloss

A self tanner is a product that contains a color additive, usually Dihydroxyacetone, aka DHA, an ingredient that reacts with your skin to turn it darker. Because of the nature of the product, you can’t wash off the tan. The color will usually last for about a week, depending on how much you sweat and shower, and if you moisturize. A bronzer is a product designed to give you a bronze glow, but it does not “tan” your skin and the color is only temporary. It’s just a layer of color, like make up, that you can apply to your face and body that can wash off.

Products Getting Me Through Winter! ❄
Since I can remember I've had oily to combination skin, until this winter. It's been a rough one! My skin has been SO dry, and it's hard to keep up with it. Especially since I'm prone to acne and clogged pores, so I can't use a lot of heavy creams and pore clogging products. These I wouldn't be able to live without this winter! COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence 🐌 I love this essence! This is a Korean product (Korean skin care will always be a hit). And it's made with Snail Mucin, weird right? This contains 96% snail mucin, which has incredible healing and antimicrobial properties. It promotes collagen production and aids in skin regeneration. And it's a top pick for dry skin types because of its amazing ability to hydrate. This has a jelly-like texture and I find myself ALWAYS reaching for this. Most of the claimed benefits do come with time. Another product I'm loving is the DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum 💧This is a serum that came in a DE kit and I really want the full size! This seriously feels like a cold drink of water for your skin. It's lightweight and spreads nicely. It not only has Sodium Hyaluronate, (which is like hyarulonic Acid on steroids) but also Pineapple Ceramide and provitamin B5, an amazing humectant. As well as a lentil/apple/watermelon complex. It's not crazy different from other Hyarulonic Acid serums I've tried, but it's great! I finally got to try the cult favorite DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream . And wow I'm glad I did! This cream does have a few possible pore clogging ingredients so I was afraid to use it, but It's helped my dryness so much! It feels sooo moisturizing and soothing. I love that this is a protein moisturizer that has peptides, growth factors, amino acids, and pygmy waterlily to improve your overall skin health. This is an amazing anti-aging and skin strengthening moisturizer. I love using this it's a great experience. I already reviewed this incredible product, the Glossier. - Balm Dotcom 👄 It's become a staple lip balm for me. It's extremely hydrating and packed with antioxidants and natural emollients. It has Castor Oil, Beeswax, and Lanolin to seal in moisture. It leaves my lips looking sooo hydrated and smooth. It's THE perfect lip balm and I am obsessed. Feel free to comment or ask any questions below 💗
drunk elephant review with fungal acne🐘💗
as someone with fungal acne, buying the same products can be reaaallyyy boring. so this is my review of drunk elephant as someone with fungal acne!! * disclaimer, NONE of these products are fungal acne safe!! use at your own risk * ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser this cleansing balm doesn’t really emulsify when you activate it with water, leaving a really oily feeling😕 and doesn’t remove all my makeup ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Beste No. 9 Jelly Cleanser Deluxe Sample this is a really nice gentle foaming cleanser... and thats pretty much it. ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum i love this serum! its a lovely gel serum that absorbs in quickly and is greak at oil control ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Firma Vitamin C Day Serum this serum is a little tricky, i haven’t really noticed a difference in my skin in terms if brightness, i do have a bit of dark spots and they haven’t budged. not to mention this formulation is a rip off of the SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum ￼ ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream this is a thicc moisturizer that surprisingly doesn’t leave my oily skin looking greasy af. its a good moisturizer for dry combo skin! ￼￼ ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream this moisturizer feels exactly like the lala retro... its just 8 dollars more expensive ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask this mask burns so bad the first 20 seconds but then it settles down. i really havent seen a difference in my skin so ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil ive only used this oil a few times but wow it really makes your skin feel super soft and dewy ￼DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lippe Balm i love this lip balm but its 16 dollars and the claim are completely false! in conclusion, i wont be repurchasing anymore of drunk elephant products because in reality they are just good products... nothing too special ESPECIALLY for the price. they aslo didn’t want to provide information about the percentage of black employees during the Pull Up Or Shut Up movement so yeah. their aesthetic is cute but ive grown out of this phase 😀 like and save!! xo melanie
Dupe Or Nope? Does the budget option REALLY exist? 🤔🤔
SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum is the best-selling product from SkinCeuticals and is known as the gold standard of Vitamin C serum. It features 15% vitamin C, 1% vitamin E, and 0.5% ferulic acid. Vitamin E helps increase the anti-oxidant effect of vitamin C and reduce skin irritation, while ferulic acid provides an anti-inflammatory and soothing effect. There are lots of copy-cat products following its footsteps, attempting to mimic the serums magic powers. timeless SKIN CARE - 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum Refill is among the most common. Today I gonna explore that do they really DUPE? The timeless SKIN CARE - 20% Vitamin C + E Ferulic Acid Serum Refill is super easy to use. The difference between this serum and the SkinCeuticals serum is the 5% increase in vitamin C concentration, but 15% to 20% concentration actually gives almost the same result. The main reason for increasing the vitamin C concentration is to prevent a weak anti-oxidant effect and a poor balance of its ingredients from reducing the overall effect. However, the irritants have increased as well. Experience: Both have a very runny consistency, although the SkinCeuticals serum is slightly more sticky than that from Timeless. I think the Timeless serum feels better on oily skin. Effect: I always use a lot of serum and use it only in the morning. I essentially finish a 30ml bottle within two months. I have combination-dry skin in winter and combination-oily skin in summer, and neither of these products irritate me. Instead, they offer effective oil control and brighten my complexion. All in all, I think the Timeless serum is actually a good dupe. Combo: I normally use SK-II - Facial Treatment Essence (Pitera Essence) followed up with SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, then add a moisturizing serum, either ESTĒE LAUDER - Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex or Timeless Hyaluronic Acid 100% Pure Serum. I then use theESTĒE LAUDER - Revitalizing Supreme Global Anti-Aging Crème as my facial cream. Last but not least is sunscreen, which is absolutely essential! Reminder: Use only a small amount of vitamin C at first to build up your skin tolerance, then slowly increase the dosage and use it up as soon as possible as it won't work after oxidizing. Have you used any of these products? If not, will you purchase in the future? 😝

3 Serums from Skin Ceuticals! Which one do you like?
Hey gals. Have you ever used any product from Skin Ceuticals? Today I want to share my experience after using three serums from Skin Ceuticals. Which one do you like the best? My skin is comibination-dry, sometimes I have acne. My skin is quite good, except for some small wrinkles around the nose or eyes. My main purpose for skincare is to maintain the current situation and brighten my skin tone. SKINCEUTICALS - Serum 10 Aox+(30ml/$70) As part of the Anti-oxidation Prevent Series, Serum 10 has the least concentration. I want to build up my tolerance gently. The texture is a water-like light yellow liquid. It doesn't feel oily at all. The moment I spread it out, it was absorbed. This product is recommended to be used in the morning. I normally use half tube at one time. It is slightly irritating when I first use it, especially where you have acne scars. But it got better soon. It does not hurt at all when your skin is healthy. After using most of this bottle, I think my skin looks brighter and softer. I will keep using this product. Anti-oxidation is a consistent process. SKINCEUTICALS - Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier Serum(30ml/$100) This is the most impressive serum from the HA series! It contains 10% Pro-Xylane, which is effective for anti-aging. This texture somehow feels like a glue, kinda sticky. It is a light purple liquid. You have to keep pressing your face after you apply it, or your skin might get flaky. It can be used for days and nights. After I almost used up this bottle, my wrinkle looked less visible. SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum(30ml/$166) I have been using it for a few days. My face looks brighter. I am also using SKINCEUTICALS - Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 Anti Aging Creamand Emollience moisturizer. I like all of them so farm, and I will post updates regarding these products.

Drunk Elephant Glow! Worth It?
DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream This was the only moisturizer I used while I was on vacation in Hawaii last spring! This moisturizer kept my skin well hydrated, protected, and glowing. I left without any sunburn! I like that there is no fragrance in this and it just gave me a dewy look, even without makeup. There were many days where I just put this moisturizer on, under my sunscreen, and strolled out to the beach or went hiking. I have photos where it looks like I have a blurring foundation on, but this was the only thing I was wearing on my face (aside from sunscreen)! This also blends really well with the D-Bronzi product (review below). Both products have allowed me to achieve a slight tan on the face without the sun during these uncertain times. This is on the more expensive side, but it’s worth it for the benefits! DRUNK ELEPHANT - D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Drops Love love love this color enhancing product! A little goes a long way and the purpose of this is to mix it with your skincare - I usually mix half a pump with my moisturizer but you can also mix with your serum or sunscreen - to achieve a sunkissed/bronzed glow. When you first pump it out, the color looks very dark and intimidating to work with. However, once you blend into your skincare, it just adds a bit of warmth to it and turns my moisturizer into a tinted moisturizer. Please keep in mind this is not a product that should be used on its own, nor is it advertised to be used this way! This also is a great product to add to your winter foundation shade to transition it to your summer shade. Personally, I have a hard time finding an exact match for a summer shade since sometimes going up one number in the color scale does not always mean the foundation has the same undertones. In fact, usually it is a different color/undertone altogether. But adding this to my winter foundation, I get to keep the same undertone (since I lean slightly yellow) and get to just make it literally a shade darker.

I’ve Tried Murad Retinol Youth Renewal For A Week And Here’s What Happened
This is a best-seller this year but I've never used it before so I just bought a set (serum+cream+eye cream) and gave it a go. I've been using it for about a week as of now and here is my review. I have combination-oily skin. Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Serum It looks thick, but it actually absorbs very easily after application and doesn't feel greasy at all. It feels very moisturizing instead and smells nice. I've also been using retinol for a year already so I didn't find it irritating at all! I couldn't see any immediate anti-aging effect, but I could feel my face revitalized. The only downside is its bulky packaging which means it doesn't come cheap! 🙃 Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream The texture of this one feels a bit granular, so it's not very delicate and is relatively oily but it's still quite easy to apply. It feels a little oily on my face but not so much that my face shimmers. But I really dislike its smell. 😰 Murad - Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum This has a very thin texture and absorbs quickly. As an eye product with Retinol, I think it is worth a try. It does take a bit of time to see the effect of retinol on our skin, to me, the most important thing is to find the right product then use it consistently. 💪🏻💪🏻

Drunk Elephant B-Hydra
The DRUNK ELEPHANT - B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum overall is a great product to use in conjunction with another product. I have found that using the B-Hydra on its own did not give my dehydrated skin enough hydration. As of late the way I have been using this is by mixing it with the DRUNK ELEPHANT - A-Passioni Retinol Cream and that been my super star retinol combo and in the morning I am not waking up with dry skin or anything like that!
DRUNK ELEPHANT-A-Passioni Retinol Cream
My go-to skincare night routine🤩
I have combination skin as my T-zone is oily while the other parts are super dry. As you know, since we’re suggested to stay away from the crowds, I‘ve been staying at home for quite a time and the dryness caused by the air conditioner has been more severe. I must admit that it’s drunk elephant that pulled me out of the dryness concern.In my PM routine, I use Clinique’s toner, then drunk elephant’s B-hydra, followed with its Marula oil and end with the Polypeptide Cream. I’ll tell you in detail about this de’s family.Drunk Elephant B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum $48I got this baby from Sephora for $48. I think it not pricy for a 50ml face serum. It’s said that it can replenish the skin complexion and improve the look of skin texture and tone. I bought it for the concern of skin dryness, so I do not pay much attention to its targets of dullness, uneven texture and fine lines. I love the Pro-Vitamin B5 in it as it’s a good helper in holding hydration to the skin. The formulation is very light and it’s very blendable. It absorbs into my skin very quickly. I did feel my skin drinking enough water after applying this. One bottle can last a very long time so I think it’s really worth the price.Rate: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Will I repurchase? Definitely yes!Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil $72Since my T-zone is quite oily, I seldom use facial oil. However, after reviewing so much positive reviews on Cherie, I made my decision to have a try. It’s not cheap as the name says, luxury😅 but it did change my mind on oil. It’s very lightweight and really blendable, I love the idea of de’s skincare smoothies, so I often mix it with the Polypeptide cream, it can make the cream more blendable. It won’t make my face feel oily, which is amazing. I love the water-like texture and I do feel the hydration effect of it. But I seldom use it in my AM routine since I’m afraid of my oily T-zone. Considering the high price, I rated it 4 stars. Rate: 🌟🌟🌟🌟Will I repurchase? Maybe not considering the price.Drunk Elephant Protini™ Polypeptide Moisturizer $68This one is definitely my true destiny this year!!! Most of bloggers praise its effectiveness on anti-aging, but I would like to highlight its hydration effect. As I said, my skin was going through severe dryness. This moisturizer smooth my face and make my face so soft, without dehydration. The lotion-like texture is very lightweight and very easy to blend. I cannot help touching my face the next morning☺️ And for 50ml, $68 is acceptable. I really appreciate its cost-to-performance ratio. You can also try mixing it with the marula oil. I’ll repurchase this cream for sure.Rate: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Will I repurchase? Must.If you have the same dryness concern like me, please review below and tell me your fav skincare routine😉 I‘m very willing to explore more amazing beauty products.
