Oliveda Cell Active Facial Serum It's star ingredient is olive leaf cell elixir, a huge 70% of this product contains this gorgeous elixir. What is this elixir you ask? It's the cell sap of the olive tree leaves. Hydroxytyrosol for the olive tree is one of the strongest antioxidants in the world. The cell elixir is full of hydroxytyrosol, up to 3000 times higher than olive oil. As you can imagine, this is a very potent antioxidant, which helps fight against free radicals and environmental toxins. Some other ingredients that stand out to me are Aloe vera, Bisabolol and Honey. This powerful and highly concentrated serum they call the fountain of youth is said to firm and tighten skin, repair and regenerate stressed and dehydrated, moisturise and nourish, refines the pores, reduces pigment spots and balances wrinkles. My thoughts 💭 It absolutely helps repair and hydrate and has been an absolute saviour in my recent skin flare up. It soothes, repairs, definitely plumps, because my skin is hydrated my pores appear smaller and it absorbs so quickly leaving my face with a glow. I've haven't tried a serum with cell active ingredients before so was super intriged to see what it does. It's definitely magic in a bottle and these amazing mountain olive trees provide the most beautiful exilir.
olivedao Oliveda released their first product back in 2001, in a tree house in Andalusia! Their formulas are so unique, replacing 70% of water phase in cosmetics with the cell sap of the olive tree! However, none of their products feel oily but instead they feel very nourishing and hydrating! I know my beautiful friend really enjoys their Face Serum and she was right about it, it’s such a beautiful one! My face is instantly hydrated, plump and radiant! Another winner for me was their Eye Cream. I have a particularly difficult time finding hydrating eye creams that wouldn’t feel too heavy on the area but this one is just the perfect combo! My concelear and powder applies smoothly and perfect afterwards!❤️❤️❤️ Unfortunately their Face Cream wasn’t a winner for me but my boyfriend is really enjoying it and said he loves how hydrating it without feeling heavy at all. I highly recommend checking them out because I think the method they use in their skincare is unique and deserves more hype!
AZELAIC ACID Produced from yeast, and found naturally on the skin, Azelaic acid is touted to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes, refine the skin’s surface, improve skin tone and finish post-acne scars by inhibiting unwanted elements on the skin through light exfoliation. It’s also considered the chemical exfoliant of choice when you want to tackle clarity of pores, yet are prone to redness and results can be expected within 3 to 6 months. Having tried over the counter azelaic acid, including the pictured Garden of Wisdom one, and a suspension from The Ordinary as well as prescription strength Skinoren, I now know that azelaic acid, in any strength, irritates my sensitive skin. I’m always left with red sensitive patches and tiny little bumps. However, just because I can’t personally use it, doesn’t mean it’s a bad ingredient - in fact, it’s a star ingredient cross versatile multi-tasker that I wish I could tolerate!
It’s no secret that retinol is the big boss of the beauty game but it is one ingredient that I have largely excluded from my regime… until now! Just over three weeks ago, I began EASING into retinol. I have sensitive, somewhat acne-prone, combination skin and it gets angry easily so, to make this work, patience, control and consistency are essential. . My Goal… To smooth over a few fine lines and minimize the appearance of some pesky pores. . Frequency & Concentration… I have started with a 0.3% Retinol concentration once per week (Sunday’s). After 4 weeks I will add another night (likely Wednesday’s) and continue until the little sample tube is finished. . Quantity… I use a pea sized amount for my entire face and then spot a little extra onto “problem areas”. . Regime… It’s important to apply retinol to skin that is *completely dry* (it helps to prevent irritation)! So on retinol nights I cleanse, pat my face try with a towel, and then wait a a minute or two more for any excess moisture to evaporate. After applying Retinol, I again wait another minute or two for it to fully absorb and then continue on with my routine. On Retinol days I tend towards gentler routines with fewer acids and I skip my LAA serum the following morning. I also use healing and hydrating masks in the day following Retinol application. . Progress… So far I have had zero irritation or flaking! I do notice my skin feels a bit drier the next few mornings but it’s nothing a little moisturizer can’t fix. I haven’t had any visible dryness or peeling. As for purging, nothing notable as of yet. I did get a bit of a breakout (nothing major) but it could just as easily have been hormonal. . Moving Forward… I will continue using the 0.3% concentration until the tube is finished and then will increase to 0.5%. I will *try* to continue with twice per week use but if I notice a reaction I will switch back to once per week for a full month and then add the second day back in. Once I have finished the 0.5% tube (it will likely be a full size tube) I will finally upgrade to 1%.. That’s the plan at least!
Ample N peptide shot ampoule - Combines patented peptides and active ingredients in ideal proportions, recalling forgotten skin elasticity. The serum is quickly absorbed into the skin and immediately feels suppler, nourished and radiant. Main Ingredients: Niacinamide is applied to the skin for treating eczema and inflammatory acne vulgaris), adenosine (Yeast-derived ingredient that functions as a good soothing and skin-restoring agent.), panthenol (used in cosmetics and beauty products primarily as a lubricant, emollient and moisturizer), pearl extract (The extract of freshwater pearl is used to give skin an instant youthful, glow. Some studies have also shown that pearl extract may reduce skin discoloration and redness), peptide 10050 ppb (It contains 3 peptides which have the ability to penetrate the top layer of skin and communicate with our cells telling them what to do!) Ok – enough of the scientific stuff. This is certainly one of the cooler products I have received as you can see the peptides (yes, they look like worms), but they absorb right in! It does leave a slight tackiness after using that dissipates with moisturizer. I use as a serum in my routine after toner and before moisturizer. If you are scent sensitive this is not for you as it had a strong floral scent. It also contains alcohol which bummed me out because I try to avoid that in a skincare product. So I’m on the fence with this one. I’ll use it up though to see if it makes a difference in any way. I will update this post down the line if I end up repurchasing. I believe it is under $20 as I saw it on eBay.
Lotion P50W is a exfoliating lotion including alpha-hydroxy-acids of Lactic acid, derived from milk sugars, and magic acid. With particles bigger than those of glycolic acid, exfoliation is enabled whilst irritation is minimised. Adding to the blend of large molecule acids if Gluconolactone; a poly-hydroxy-acid that promises to be exfoliating, moisturising and protect the skin from UV damage through its ability to scavenge free radicals - although adequate sun protection in the form of an SPF is still required. This magic bottle also includes the antibacterial properties of horseradish, capsicum to purify and burdock to moisturise, heal and calm. At first I used this a few days a week, only on my chin, nose and forehead area and only in the morning. I avoided my cheeks due to redness and easy irritation. But my skin tolerated this so well, I bumped up the usage and even started applying this to my cheeks and it’s working great. I think it may be a combination of multiple products I’m currently using but my face is seldom flushing, even after going for long walks, and looks more even, toned and clear ✨ Now I know many skintellectuals will freak out on reading this next statement: I’ve even used this before applying tretinoin - with a half an hour interval in-between of course. Irritation? None! Skin barrier? Intact! And that really is a testament to it’s gentle formula, as if I tried this with any other acid - i’d have no face left.
meet the love of my skin
to be honest i can’t live without @purito_official is my holy grail from all the times, if i could marry with one brand would be this one, not only for their natural products and is cruelty free! because my skin has been showing lots of improvement let me start with the dead sea pure water cream is very hydrating so i usually bring this moisturizer EVERYWHERE! i don’t miss the chance to introduce such a friendly brand to my friends, the essence is a MIRACLE it absorbs super fast and hydrated my skin in like 100% and sometimes i feel like i could skip the serum part and go straight for the moisturizer but i don’t, the all in one mild pads is something very helpful and easy to use i’m still trying this one so nope there’s not a review yet for this baby and lastly the centella green level unscented is something i can’t make justice i mean, it doesn’t have any scent but i love the green texture, there’s no white cast!!! and is not sticky so yes i’m sorry but i’m biased for this brand because there’s everything to love! also that is suitable for sensitive skin 💕 *Gifted
PURITO-Centella Green Level Safe Sun
Idebenone is hidden in cosmetics under the name Hydroxydecyl Ubiquinone, it's a synthetic form of Coenzyme Q10 and an antioxidant. This ingredient is mostly used in case of free radicals damage/ageing but Bellflower used it in a brightening formula. This serum also contains Niacinamide, Propolis Extract and Adenosine - 3 ingredients which I really like because they help with acne, wounds healing and brightening. The serum has no smell, at least I can't smell it, the texture is a bit more liquid than average serum bt easy to apply, during the month I couldn't even hit 1/4 used formula - it's a product which you won't have to repurchase for 6 months or even more unfortunately for me I didn't see any brightening or spectacular skin changes, maybe I'm used to peptides and I expected miracles but none of the spots I had on my skin got brighter. It contains lots of natural extract and oils so I recommend you check the ingredients first, I feel like if you want a product for wrinkles then Idebenone serum might be a great idea, but brightening? I don't think so. I already started to use Heartleaf Houttynia Serum from the same brand and it's way better, I also heard that Azulene serum is amazing, I'm going to share this Idebenone serum with my friend hoping that maybe she'll see better results than I did since what works for you might not work on my skin and that's natural.
