my accutane journey updates with some beauty and skincare products/reviews :)
127 days on accutane! update 🥳
hey everyone!!! sorry it’s been so long since i’ve posted a real update on how my skin is looking, i just started a new job along with having school and it’s killing me 😫 my skin is clearing pretty amazingly!! i just looked at pictures from august and i’m astonished. as for side effects, it’s still dry around my nose and my eyes, but everything else is good! i stand for 10.5 hours during my shifts so that is definitely taking a shot at my joints, but other than that, i haven’t had any horrible headaches like i had been. something i’m really looking forward to is treating my scars and hyperpigmentation. that’s really my biggest concern with my skin now as i only have one really small pimple that was definitely my fault for messing with my skin 😭 if anyone has any recommendations for brightening, hyperpigmentation, scars i would love to hear them!!! i’ve been looking into that a lot because i’m nearing the end of my treatment 🥳
Skin Update! (With makeup)
hey everyone!! i couldn’t not post a skin update today, because i’m so excited with how my skin is clearing up. it’s so much easier to apply makeup with no active breakouts 🙏🏼 i pray it stays like this because i’m almost on month 5 of accutane. i will definitely post an update with no makeup, and after my next derm visit :)
93 days in :( — accutane update
hey everyone! just coming on here to update how my skin is looking. i just got my period, so my skin is calming down from the pms breakouts, but i’m still kinda confused why it’s even breaking out at this point. i have my dermatologist visit a week from today and then i’ll be starting month 4 and my skin really hasn’t improved a whole lot, which is upsetting to me. i still have a lot of breakouts around my chin and they’re really painful ;( i’ll update you guys after my visit, hopefully she increases my dose!
mask friendly makeup look ⚡️
hi everyone! i have been trying to wear less makeup because - 1. you can’t see half of your face wearing a mask and 2. to help my skin heal (hopefully). with this being said, i find it hard to make a quick makeup look pop if you don’t want to do a full eye look. i have been loving adding a fun color on my bottom lash line and i think purple makes green eyes stand out the most! i think it’s a really easy way to make your makeup look more put together. i still feel crazy only doing half a face of makeup but that is the sign of the times right now 🤷🏼♀️ for this look, i just used a little concealer under my eyes and in between my brows, filled in my brows a little, blended some purple under my lash line and added mascara! super simple but i think it’s still super cute :)
MAYBELLINE-Fit Me Concealer
new painful breakouts :(
just wanted to come on here and update you guys on how my skin is looking. i would be lying if i said i didn’t just finish crying over how my skin looked before taking this :):):):) i’ve been so extremely stressed and mentally exhausted from college so my skin is going through it. i’m back to feeling really discouraged because i thought i was finally at a phase with my accutane course where my skin would only improve from there, but it seems like within days of posting my last update it flared up so badly, it’s even hard to cover with makeup. i hope everyone had a great week and is doing great tonight :) hopefully more happy updates to come
🎵Ettusais Lip Essence Snoopy limited edition🎵 This lip essence is my favorite! Brand: etussia is a Japanese brand. Most of its products have simple and cute packagings, and contain natural ingredients. Claims: Gives your lips a rich glossy luster while treating roughness, dryness and protecting them from UV rays. Lip Essence promotes blood circulation needed for pink healthy lips. It keeps your lips moisturized with hyper gloss oil, while reducing the look of vertical lines on lips and protecting lips with SPF 18 PA ++. It's the lazy girl's way to pretty lips. My thoughts: The normal version of this lip balm is a pink tube, but I prefer this snoopy limited edition. It is definitely not that kind of lip care product that only have cute packaging! You can slide left to see the texture of the essence and the design of the applicator. Most of the essence in my impression are liquid, but this lip essence has thick texture. I prefer to have beauty products with pleasant scent, this one is no-fragrance so it’s a bit disappointing for me. Its applicator is designed to fit the curve of your lips, which can be spread wider when used, which is good. If you apply it before bedtime, the effect on the next day is amazing. You will understand why it is an essence, not a normal lip balm: it can soften your lips, save you from chapped lips, and reduce the fine lines on the lips over time.

It has been a long and TOUGH skin journey for me, but I finally made it and couldn’t be happier. This time last year, I hated my skin. Every morning, the first thing I did was look in the mirror to see how bad my skin looked. That’s what I worried about 24/7. Everywhere I went, I was always worried that other people were staring at my skin; it was all I thought about all the time. I was disgusted by my skin and it really lowered my self-esteem. But I FINALLY made it. I’ve realized that it is a NORMAL thing, so don’t beat yourself up about it. If you’re going through this right now, just know that it does get better! Keep your head up, beautiful! :) *These are results from taking accutane for about 5 months.
