LOL so I snapped this pic in the middle of using The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
and lemme tell you. That stuff BURNED! I was on an off day from adapalene and was having a particularly annoying time with the hordes of closed comedones on my chin and also had some residual flakies from the adapalene that were lingering a bit longer than I wanted. So, naturally, I washed my face with the TULA SKINCARE - Keep It Clear Acne Foam Cleanser
that I’ve been using in the evenings, my first mistake. Never use this mask with ANY OTHER SENSITIZING PRODUCTS which INCLUDES SA! My next mistake was not waiting long enough (a few days) after my last application of adapalene. I believe it had been two nights since I used it last, but the skin on my chin where an active breakout was occurring was NOT the correct place to put this peel. I know better, but do not as I do, please! or you will be very regretful. As soon as I applied this product to thoroughly dried skin, my chin started burning. It stung the rest of my face but not nearly as bad as it did on my chin. I resolved to leave it on for only a few minutes because of the discomfort I was experiencing. I gently washed off the mask with lukewarm water about 4 minutes after applying. My face was pink and so smooth elsewhere, but I had visibly damaged my skin on my chin. I went into recovery mode and slathered my face in COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence
and after it sunk into my skin, applied a thick layer of FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration
and hoped for the best. I woke up in flake city all over my chin/mustache/nostrils. It wasn’t red, but a lot of excess sloughing of dead skin cells was occurring. My barrier at least where my breakout under my lip is was destroyed 🥺. Since this incident (3 days ago) I’ve stuck to only cleansing at night with the TULA SKINCARE - The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser
and the FAB ultra repair moisturizer. My skin has recovered, since and while my breakout is still present, I’ve noticed an improvement overall in my cheek and upper lip zits. I’m going to continue to give my skin a break by only using hydrating and nourishing products, slowly working them back into my routine and will be avoiding acids & actives especially on my chin area until it has fully recovered. I don’t necessarily think the AHA/BHA peel is a bad product, and for some people it really works wonders! I’ll echo what everybody else who loves it has to say about it: do your research, be careful not to overdo it, and DO NOT MIX any other actives in your routine when using this product ‼️ And if skincare burns 🥵 FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WASH IT OFF ! ❣️

laurenbaaderTbh I’m afraid now I have had it forever and avoided it because it’s harsh on my skin and even trying to be cautious, I think my skin is just too sensitized while using acne clearing products!

Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines pt. 4
Hey ya’ll! In part 4 of Reviewing My Followers Skincare Routines we’re reviewing @Raks and @juliachristine’s skincare routines. Starting with @Rakswho reached out to me via Cherie message because she started skincare about a year ago because of her upcoming wedding. She starts by cleansing with theThursday Plantation - Tea Tree Face Wash Foam which costs $8.99 for 5.1 fl oz. This cleanser is very basic. It has tea tree oil, and eucalyptus oil. My issue is with the eucalyptus oil, which is a very irritating essential oil right up there with lemon oil and peppermint oil. If this doesn’t irritate your skin then it’s a great cleanser, but I can’t recommend it to those with sensitive skin. Then she goes in with 4 serums. First is thepura d'or - 20% Vitamin C Serum which costs $14.99 for 4 fl oz. This is a really good serum. It has aloe vera juice, glycerin, jojoba oil, and argan oil which are hydrating ingredients, and then it has hylaronic acid, retinol, and Vitamin C. I love it! Then she uses#The Ordinary - Nicinamide Serum[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $5.90 for 1 fl oz. We’ve talked a lot about this serum, it’s very good. Next is the#Tree Of Life - Hylaronic acid serum[products]#[TwoStars] which costs $10.95 for 1 fl oz. I don’t like this serum. It started off good with hylaronic acid, aloe vera juice, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C, but it contains way too many Essential oils and irritating extracts. And her final serum is theSkinMedica - LYTERA 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum which costs $130.90 for 2 fl oz, which is very expensive. This is not worth the price. It has nicinamide and glycerin, and then some not very researched acids. I don’t recommend continuing use of this serum. Then to moisturize she goes in with theOLAY - Regenerist Regenerating Day Cream which costs $29.99 for 1.7 fl oz. I don’t like this moisturizer. Let’s start with some positives. It has nicinamide, glycerin, and Vitamin B3. Now it has a lot of bad ingredients also. It has Sodium Laureth Sulfate, which is a harsh cleansing agent, as well as fragrance being the 6th ingredient. The she uses a Neutrogena sunscreen, and occasionally usesThe Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which costs $7.20 for 1 fl oz. This is a great exfoliant. I think @Raks is using too many serums. I would stick to only the Pura D’or and The Ordinary serum, and ditch the other two. Keep the cleanser, and maybe try a different moisturizer. You asked for mineral sunscreen reccomendations for dark skin tones that don’t have a white cast, so I got you girl! I have light skin, but I did some research and I’d recommend the#First Aid Beauty - Weightless Mineral SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $34 for 1.5 fl oz, and the #Biossance - Squalane Zinc Sheer SPF 30[products]#[FiveStars] which costs $30 for 1.7 fl oz. Both of these have minimal white cast, and Skincare by Hyram recommends them. Next is @juliachristine’s night routine. She starts off by cleansing with the #Vanicream - Unscented Gentle Cleanser[products]#[ThreeStars] witch costs $8.99 for 8 fl oz. This a nice basic cleanser with glycerin. Next she uses the#OBAGI - Tretinoin 0.025% Cream[products]#[TwoStars] which costs $84 for .7 fl oz. This cream has tretinoin which is a Vitamin A derivative which can treat acne, as well as retinol which also Vitamin A. I don’t think it’s worth the price, but it’s okay. Next she uses the #The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10%[products]#[FourStars] which costs $7.99 for 1 fl oz. Along with azelaic acid, it has dimethicone which is a great moisturizer for dry skin. Next she uses theCeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin which costs $17.99 for 15 fl oz. Y’all know I love this product! Finally she finishes off with theVERSED - ZERO-G Smoothing Eye Cream witch costs $17.99 for .5 fl oz. Eye cream is definitely not necessary but this one is great! It has glycerin, algae extract, and olive oil which are hydrating, along with shea butter and a blend of peptides which can help firm the skin and increase collagen production which can help reduce fine lines around the eyes. Overall @juliachristine your routine looks great! That’s it for this post please cheer for this post if you liked it, comment your opinions on these products, and follow me for similar content. Upcoming posts include a 1 month Curology review and unnecessary skincare steps you don’t need. -Mae

Brands I love ❤️
For Valentine's day I figure I'd make a post about brands I LOVE and highly recomend! Paula’s choice I know I do not own many of her products and I think it’s because I want to try other brands as I explore the vast skincare world. I already know this one is trustworthy in my book. They not only have a great resource with their ingredient dictionary, but they use that knowledge and transparency to formulate great products. Even the negative reviews on this brand that I've seen still say they formulate very well. They are slightly on the pricey side (expect about $40 or more), but you cannot go wrong. I love their PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator especially and have used their PAULA'S CHOICE - Defense Nightly Reconditioning Moisturizer Krave Beauty They don’t carry a lot of products in their brand, but like a fine dining restaurant with a small menu, what they make is their specialty. Their products are reasonably priced and they focus on non-irritating effective ingredients to help your skin barrier. I currently have their Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser and their Krave - Great Barrier Relief Inkey List I love this brand and that they are making simple products with usually only once active and that allows people to try them to see how it effects their skin for a reasonable price. I currently have their rosehip oil because I didn’t know how my skin would react to it, but it’s known for hydrating and evening skin tone. I currently use their THE inkey LIST - Rosehip Oil Cosrx Another good brand that formulates well while still being very reasonably priced. I love their COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence and COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence CeraVe A tried and true brand. There is a reason why dermatologists recommend this. CeraVe is formulated with non irritating ingredients, that may make them seem “boring” by not being packed with actives, but effective. I have a few of their products. CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream and CeraVe - Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum

My Current PM Routine
I recently did my AM routine.... Guess it's time to do my PM routine. Keep in mind my routines do tend to change frequently due to me trying different products to review, but this is my current one. THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm (I have to double check, but I think it's fragrence free) So far I'm enjoying this one. I like the ease of the tube and the texture is nice to get off my makeup and sunscreen. I actually like this one better than Then I met you - Living Cleansing Balm (not Fragrence free) and it's cheaper. I still enjoy then I met you, but it's not in the tube and I like inkey's texture better. Krave - Matcha Hemp Hydrating Cleanser (Fragrence free) I've been using this one for PM because I feel like my milky cleansers aren't strong enough to get off the balm (it probably is). It's still gentle, while still feeling cleansing. I will say there's been times where I don't get it fully off and then when I go into my next step, it still foams up and I have to go back in and REALLY make sure I got it off Hanskin - Hyaluron Skin Essence(I think it's fragrence free. Again I'd have to double check) I haven't used this one enough yet to make a review, but so far I like it. It's watery like a toner so that's how I've been using it. My go to is usually COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence which I still use in the AM. I want to like Hanskin because I don't have a toner and wouldn't mind using this product in that place COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence (Fragren free) I've already reviewed this one! Def a holy grail because it makes my skin feel plump and hydrated. If you can get around the idea of using snail slime, it is worth it! ETUDE - Soonjung Hydro Barrier Cream(Fragrence free) Another product too soon to review since it just recently joined my routine. It does leave a little shine while its waiting to sink in so if I keep it in my routine it would be for PM. So far my go to is CeraVe - Skin Renewing Night Cream and I'm curious to find a cream that is a little more complex in it's ingredients list THE inkey LIST - Rosehip Oil (Fragrence free) I've been using this for a few weeks now. It is nice for hydration, but it sits on my skin. I feel like it sits on my skin for a long time. If I'm going straight to bed, I feel like it gets on my pillow and hair making a oily mess. I like to use this if I know I have time before laying down

Ulta & Marshall’s Hair & Skin Haul
What’s up my bargain basement bitches? Due to my recent unprecedented BREAKOUT on my damn chin/cheek/mustache area I decided it was time to use my Adult Money ™️ to purchase some new skin ~clearing~ items. Being that I work for the government, I am absolutely the furthest from raking in that dough, so bargains are v appealing to me. I’m an Ulta shopper, not sorry. I don’t give a dern about makeup and I find that Ulta has that good good, cruelty free, clean, & affordable skin care. Also fuck that elitist Sephora energy, my local Ulta has a salon in the back that I can only imagine is the equivalent of a set of Super Cuts side bangs. Featured in this haul: Ulta TULA SKINCARE - Keep It Clear Acne Foam Cleanser($34) TULA SKINCARE - The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser (free sample) LA ROCHE-POSAY - Effaclar Adapalene Gel .01% Topical Retinoid Acne Treatment($30) COSRX - Hyaluronic Acid Hydra Power Essence on sale 50% off! ($12) Marshall’s Random ass Facial Steamer ($16) “ABSOLUTEHEAT” Pro Iron Series curling wand ($20) Golden Castor Oil with eyebrow/lash brushes ($7) AQUIS - Hair Towel Waffle Luxe Moody Gray($10) I have been using FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Skin Lab Retinol Serumand FIRST AID BEAUTY - FAB Skin Lab Retinol Eye Cream with Triple Hyaluronic Acid which are wonderful, especially the eye cream which completely blasted the dry patch near the corner of my eye that was there for MONTHS but I felt like tapering up a bit after introducing retinol for the first time about a month and a half ago. It is also likely that the breakout on my chin/cheeks is due to the retinol serum (I currently use 2-3x wk and don’t use any actives with it except for Mad Hippie - Triple C Night Creamwhich I’m prettty sure clogs the shit out of my pores but w/e). I will post a skin check-in tomorrow & eventually review these products after I work them into my routine. So far, so good! I will say the Tula SA cleanser had a super strong tea tree fragrance which isn’t a dealbreaker for me so much as a indicator of some powerful shit. Fingers crossed this gets the pesky comedones on my chin/upper lip to dissolve 🤓. In the meantime, comment below with your favorite sheet masks to use with the face steamer! I got it for my bf mostly, as well as an extraction toolkit because he likes to take things into his own hands with his skin and I respect that- so I got him some tools that can be sterilized & keep him from poking holes his face with my stolen embroidery needles.

MY ACNE JOURNEY! Part 2
I last left off on being helpless with no idea on what to do next for my face! I looked into the brand Tula and read about differin gel that I could purchase from target. I bought the Tula SA cleanser, Tula salicylic acid gel, differin gel, benzoyl peroxide 10% wash and got to work. AM Routine: •BP 10% wash •Tula Salicyclic acid gel •Skinceuticals Retexturing Activator •Osea Blemish balm moisturizer PM Routine: •SA cleanser •Differin Gel This routine has been a saving grace for me. I started this routine on 10/13/2020 and have been at it for about 2 months now (today is 12/8/2020). What I want you to take from my journey is that 1) damaging you skin barrier is a real thing and it can be detrimental to your skin’s health and 2) skincare routines take time to work. Stick with your routine for 4-6 weeks and if you still don’t notice a change, then you can revise your routine. I’m still researching and trying to find something to help with my scars. The skinceuticals retexturing activator has made a difference I think, but it hasn’t been dramatically different like I expected. The serum was $80 and I’m not sure if I will invest in it again. I do not currently have a favorite SPF that I use. I usually base my face with Ilia Skin Tint that has SPF 40 but it’s too dewy for my oily skin. Thinking about investing in EltaMD SPF. I think having a good SPF will make a difference in my scarring! If you have made it this far into my post, thank you for reading and please hit me with any questions you may have! It’s been a long journey for me so I’m sure I’ve left out some details. Leave your thoughts below!💜 TULA SKINCARE - Clear It Up Acne Clearing and Tone Correcting Gel TULA SKINCARE - Keep It Clear Acne Foam Cleanser PanOxyl - Acne Foaming Wash Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Maximum Strength #Johnson & Johnson - Benzoyl Peroxide 10% Spot Treatment[products]#[FiveStars] SKINCEUTICALS - Retexturing Activator Face Exfoliator DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel OSEA - Blemish Balm

🧼CLEANSER REVIEWS🧼
I love experimenting with different cleansers, so here’s some recent faves! TULA SKINCARE - The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser will always continue to be a go-to! This super refreshing gel-based cleanser removes dirt, impurities & makeup without stripping or over-drying. Probiotics, prebiotics & lactic acid gently exfoliate skin, leaving it purified, clarified & balanced. It feels and smells CLEAN more than any cleanser I’ve ever tried, and my skin always feels amazing after using. bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Gel Cleanser this is a new one for me, but I can already tell I’m going to be a huge fan. This is a gentle, purifying cleanser with BHA (salicylic acid!!) and Brazilian sea water. This foaming cleanser keeps pores clear and skin balanced - without over-drying - for a clear, calm complexion every day. I’ve been struggling with maskne lately, and I truly feel like this is making a difference. SUNDAY RILEY - Ceramic Slip Cleanser this is supposed to be a foaming gel cleanser made with plant based soaps to pull out impurities, clean, and balance skin. I didn’t love the consistency or the scent. I also didn’t feel like it foamed at all. Just meh. Kate Somerville - ExfoliKate Cleanser Daily Foaming Wash this is a clinic-inspired foaming cleanser with AHAs and fruit enzymes to gently cleanse away oil, makeup, and surface impurities revealing smoother skin. More than any others, it has a nice tingly feeling and a great scent! Probably won’t be rushing to buy again, but also did enjoy it! Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser this is a creamy gel cleanser that is okay, but not amazing. It’s super gentle, pH balanced, and didn’t leave me with any complaints, but also nothing to rave about. JUICE BEAUTY - Green Apple Brightening Gel Cleanser I like this stuff for a gentle morning cleanse! The main benefits are it’s brightening effects! It has a great apple smell and a surprisingly runny consistency. EARTH HARBOR - Sunshine Dew Antioxidant Cleansing Oil this has become my go-to first cleanse or gentle morning cleanse! It feels like rubbing a bit of sunshine on my face and has a great lemon scent! Highly recommend if you are okay with scented products!

*UPDATED* PM skin routine 🌚
*UPDATED* PM skin routine 🌚
This is my pm skin routine, updated. This is my part 2 to my last post of my updated AM routine! 🌊HOLI FROG - Superior Omega Nutritive Gel Wash my boyfriend got me this for my bday, and I’ve used it 2 times so far. The consistency is perfect for what I wanted, I felt like I needed this for my stubborn hormonal acne. It also is unscented. So far, I like it a lot! ☕️ YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner when I exfoliate, this is my go to. I have a review on this in a previous post, where I go into more detail. 🍃NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% this is what I got instead of another TO niacinamide serum. I like this one a lot better, and I think it’s simply because it is formulated better. It doesn’t foam up like TO does, and it’s also unscented. It’s consistency and packaging is also better. The results are what’s expected from a niacinamide serum, and price wasn’t too bad for this serum either. 🍁The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG see my am routine post for details on this product. 🧬GOOD MOLECULES - Hyaluronic Acid Serum I like this serum because it’s cheaper like the ordinary, and it doesn’t foam up like TO did, but it still foams a little bit. It’s good enough for me, and isn’t scented. 🐘 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream this is my night moisturizer, and I love this because it’s thick and hydrating. It feels nice on the skin, doesn’t have any scent, and makes my skin feel plump. It is expensive though, but DE always is. pmd - Clean Smart Facial Cleansing Device I got this in my subscription box, and I’ve been using it at night to wash my face. It has 4 vibration settings, I use the first and second one for washing my face. I do think that it helps with exfoliation, and using the other side of the tool is made for massaging in serums. I found that it does take a lot of extra time when using it for serums. I like this tool, it’s nice, but not necessary. More of a luxury item.

The Ordinary-Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG
Today’s talk is all about rose
Today’s talk is all about rosen skin care, which was designed by Jmaack who was tired of using the same old products to try to help with her acne. She created these products to help those with acne see results by using clean ingredients. Rosen believes that it’s all about feeling comfortable in your own skin and knowing what you are putting on your face. I really love the philosophy behind the brand and the power of each product. Every product that I have tried is potent and effective which is important especially knowing that they contain the cleanest ingredients. The best thing about rosen skincare is that the products are affordable! ✨ Bright Citrus Serum 🍊 ✨ Ingredients: Vitamin C, Grapefruit Oil, Mulberry extract, Radish Root Ferment, Coconut Fruit extract. 🥥 ✨ This serum contains 20% Vitamin C and promotes bright and radiant skin. Anyone who has dull skin and/or discoloration due to scaring would benefit from this. I personally like using vitamin c in the morning to refresh my tired skin. ✨ Rose Water Face Dew 🌹 ✨ Ingredients: Rose Water, Castor Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Radish Root Ferment, Lactobacillus, Coconut Fruit Extract, Rose Absolute. ▫️ This hydrating mist is meant to be a replacement for your heavy moisturizer which could come very handy in the summer when your skin doesn’t actually need all of that moisture. You can use it after cleansing and toning or just throughout the day to freshen up! ✨ Super Smoothie Cleanser 🍓 ✨ Ingredients: Lemon, Strawberry, and Raspberry powders, Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Radish Root Ferment, Lactobacillus, Coconut Fruit Extract. 🍋 ✨ This powerful cleanser is filled with active fruit powders that are all high in vitamin c. It’ll help brighten the skin, fade any scarring or discoloration, and balance out your skin’s oil levels. ✨ Enzyme Scrub Ingredients: Safflower Seed Oil, Walnut Shell, Pumpkin, Lemon, Frankincense, and Jojoba Seed Powders, Lemon Oil, Radish Root Ferment, Lactobacillus & Coconut Fruit Extract ▪️ This is a super fine paste that is gentle enough to be used daily. It’ll polish away those dead skin cells leaving your skin smoother. (cont. in comments)

My love for small, CLEAN, crue
My love for small, CLEAN, cruelty free skincare brands exploded after being blown away by the formulas and quality of Honua products🌺🌱 These products are luxuriously made and work so well. . Here are my honest thoughts - in the order I would use them. FYI: I have extremely acne prone skin and these did not break me out! ——— ✨Pa’akai cleansing cream - First off, this reminds me of my childhood in Hawaii because of its delicate hibiscus scent🌺 Used AM/PM as a cleanser, this cream deep cleanses gently and thoroughly without stripping or drying the skin. It is divine. . . ✨Hawaiian beauty water - Ok, I’m gonna need back ups of this😭 This has been my favorite exfoliant to use lately. Blended with natural AHAs sugarcane and papaya enzymes, I always feel the product working and love the glow afterward! I also love mixing this with the cleansing cream as a quick mask for some extra TLC. . . ✨Aloha youth serum - This serum is blended with lovely firming and brightening ingredients. It sinks into the skin beautifully and my skin instantly feels hydrated and nourished. Love a good vitamin C serum for my hyperpigmentation. . . ✨Olena beauty oil - I am obsessed with using this both AM and PM. It contains turmeric, an anti inflammatory powerhouse which is amazing for skin with acne and eczema. My favorite way to use it is at night after extra exfoliation - I warm the oil between my palms and press it into the skin. My skin afterward feels so calm, almost like I just came from a spa.

My morning routine
My morning routine
Hi everyone 👋 these are my daily morning routine products! Let me know what you think! bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Gel Cleanser bliss - Clear Genius Clarifying Toner + Serum I’ve already talked about the first two products in my nighttime routine so if you wanna hear my thoughts on those check out my first post! HOWEVER, I don’t always use the cleanser in the morning because like Cassandra Bankson said “how dirty can your face get overnight?”. So I only cleanse if my face is super oily (which it rarely is). If it isn’t oily then I skip straight to my toner. The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% I put this on after my bliss serum only on my problem areas such as breakouts and large pores just as a gentle spot treatment. I gave this 4 stars because I had used up an entire bottle and repurchased and still don’t see wonderful results. It does minimize pores and oil production but it takes a long time to get rid of breakouts and doesn’t heal acne scars or prevent future breakouts like the bliss clear genius does. ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Pore Clearing Moisturizer with Salicylic Acid bliss - Bright Idea Vitamin C + Tri-Peptide Collagen Protecting & Brightening Moisturizer I switch between these two moisturizers depending on what I need for the day. If I’m having a really bad breakout day I will use origins because of that extra acne fighting power. I rated it 4 stars however because it piles off and although it isn’t oily it looks like it on the skin if you put just a bit too much. The bliss bright idea is my go to for everyday and has not caused me any problems. It has vitimin c and collagen which will leave your skin moisturized and help with brightening and clearing scars. It also has niacinamide which is going to help with the oil production. I love this cause it is amazingly moisturizing, fighting oily skin, clearing acne scars, brightening and antiwrinkle!

I have been using these products for the last two weeks as a part of my morning and night routine. I have oily, acne prone, large pores, and sometimes dry skin. 💙 I have been using the Kiehl’s acne treatment cleanser in the morning & night and I really like this face cleanser! I have noticed my acne scars have faded and this has controlled my breakouts. It doesn’t leave my face feeling dry afterwards. I am so happy that I have found a cleanser that is actually showing results. I am hoping this cleaner will continue to work on my face. I sometimes have to switch up my cleansers because they will stop working. Kiehl's - Blue Herbal Acne Cleanser Treatment 💖In the morning after I cleanse my face with the Kiehl’s cleanser I put on the fresh rose deep hydration oil infused serum. I got a free sample with one of my Sephora purchase and I love this stuff! It smells like fresh roses and the smell is not over powering. It gives my face the hydration it needs and I like to use this in the morning because it’s lighter & doesn’t leave my face looking like I dipped it in oil. I would 100% purchase this again. I have also not noticed any reaction or breakout with this product. fresh - Rose Deep Hydration Oil-Infused Serum 🤍 in the night time after I cleanse my face with the Kiehl’s cleanser I put on the ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% -but I only use this about 3-4 times per week. & OMG this does my face wonders 🤩🤩 I use this one in the night time because it is a bit heavy for my face and leaves it looking oily. It applies nicely on my face-no irritation or breakouts. When I wake up in the morning my face looks less red, my acne scars have gone down, my pores look smaller, and my face feels soft and smooth. I am so happy I found this product and am currently testing out other ordinary products at the moment. Will def purchase this again 🥰 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%
