Transitioning Into My Winter Skin Care! ❄
So technically, I never even transitioned into my "Fall skincare" this year. Where I live, the fall months don't usually get that cold. For the most part, i've been using the same products I was using in the Summer. And that was a mistake! For the past few weeks it's been really dry outside, and eventually resulted in a disruption of my moisture barrier. My cheeks, and especially the area around my eyes felt super tight, and even got cracked and flakey. Lets Talk Cleansers! I LOVE the CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser . It will always be a holy grail for me, 365 days a year. This restores and hydrates my skin, and my go-to morning cleanse. I believe in cleansing twice a day, but the morning cleanse should be with a simple, gentle cleanser. Cleansing can be really harsh for the skin, and using a foaming or treatment cleanser twice a day can stir up trouble! Another good one is the PAULA'S CHOICE - Defense Hydrating Gel-to-Cream Cleanser . This one works better as a second cleanse, to help remove makeup. It foams up, and claims to remove makeup. In my opinion, it doesn't work that well without an oil cleanse or micellar water beforehand. This cleanser isn't AS hydrating but still really good and makes my skin soft. Unlike CeraVe, this one this one has a triple-superfood complex, and antioxidants! Lately, I've been oil cleansing, then going in with the Paulas Choice cleanser, & then the CeraVe one, as my night time routine. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize! Even if you have oily skin, moisturize! My go-to moisturizers are the CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion as well as the VERSED - DEW POINT Moisturizing Gel-Cream . Both of these products I LOVE. They are perfect for acne-prone skin, & at a decent price point. But now... I'm going to start incorporating a more hydrating, heavier moisturizer, like the CeraVe - CeraVe Moisturising Cream . I'm very picky about heavy moisturizers because my pores are easily clogged. CeraVe is always a reliable brand I can count on to have simple, non-irritating products that get the job done. (And DOESNT clog pores.) Another good one is the PAULA'S CHOICE - Omega + Complex Serum . This one is technically a serum but works like a moistuizer. It's very light but super hydrating & moisturizing! It has robust levels of Omega 3, 6 and 9 for calm, stronger & healthier skin. It also has ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid & Shea Butter. Surprisingly, the Shea butter in this does not clog my pores. Hyaluronic Acid! I don't own a sole Hyaluronic Acid serum, but I use the The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA . This is really good at hydrating and plumping my skin. And it calms & depuffs any inflammation I may have. I like that it's paired with Alpha Arbutin so this serum also fades dark spots & brightens my skin. Plus, these two ingredients can be paried with almost any other active, so it's easy to include this serum in a any routine.

Popular Moisturizers for Dry Sensitive Skin
I have tried these all and here is my take. I have combo skin that gets dry in the winter and oily in the summer. So now that it’s winter I have tried some new products and gone back to some old tried and true favorites. Here is my opinion and I hope you find it useful! FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream If you have eczema, dry skin, and or sensitive skin, this is a great option! When I was battling with eczema on my face this was a lifesaver! It’s not just for your face and makes a great hand cream. It works as a great barrier during the cold winter months. The only reason it doesn’t have five stars for me is that even though it soothes dry skin and eczema, it isn’t actually moisturizing enough for me in the winter. It doesn’t penetrate deep enough. It sits on top of my skin and helps it not loose moisture but doesn’t provide enough additional moisture for me. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi Great moisturizer and my go to for the winter. It is so moisturizing and a little goes a long way. No fragrance makes this a good choice for sensitive skin. Squalane is a great ingredient for hydration and you are seeing it in more and more products. Ashwagandha helps with visible signs of fatigue and Fermented Reishi helps detoxify, hydrate, and fight premature signs of aging. It has some solid ingredients. It does have caramel color which provides 0% benefit to the product but nothing can be perfect right? I noticed more plump skin with no irritation which is why this is one of the two moisturizers I use daily. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream Before I got this I had been using the Silk Peony Eye Cream from Tatcha and it’s one of the few eye creams that doesn’t irritate my skin. So I was very excited to see what else Tatcha had to offer. The packaging is BEAUTIFUL but very unnecessary. It contains Japanese Purple Rice that boasts many benefits such as helping the skin recover from stress, pollution, and UV damage for healthier looking skin. For me it fell short. The added fragrance was of no benefit to my skin and something in the ingredient list clogged my pores sadly. I had to exchange it and it made me so sad it didn’t work for me. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream Deluxe Sample I got this first as a sample and I actually really like it! Ok...I love it! Drunk Elephant has some mixed reviews in the beauty world and comes at a hefty price tag but when my sensitive skin finds something that works for it I will spend the money for happy skin. The blend of African oils and the plant derived ceramides really help to give moisture and lock it in. Great for dry winter weather! I have two samples to use up then I am buying a full size! I hope you enjoyed my reviews! Xoxo

🌞MORNING ROUTINE ESSENTIAL🌞
Do you have Vitamin C in your morning routine ? I got the ONE LOVE ORGANICS - Botanical C Facial Serum in my September Laurel & Reed box and haven’t looked back ever since, you won’t believe the GL☀️W. 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| This vitamin C serum is amazing, I’m so impressed with the glow. I’ve been using it every morning for a couple weeks now and my skin has been looking bright and fresh. It’s a clean and effective product with a nicer price point then some of the other vitamin Cs out there. 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| this oil based serum is super hydrating and easy to spread, you really only need 1 pump of this super concentrated product to get serious results. 👃🏻|SCENT| okay, so I actually really like the scent of this serum. Some vitamin C serums can smell really.... interesting ?! I’m looking at you SKINCEUTICALS - C E Ferulic With 15% L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C Serum.. anybody else think this smells like hotdog water? Anyways, This ones a ultra faint floral smell that probably comes from the rosehip oil and rose extract. Which can sometimes give me a bit of a reaction, but in this case it’s quite pleasant and not overbearing 💦 |INGREDIENTS| 🌱Vitamin C ester: a potent, moisturizing and stable form of vitamin C to boost radiance. 🌱Plant-powered C complex: Rosehip, baobab, acerola and sea buckthorn deliver a full range of plant-based C nutrients. 🌱Hops extract- a botanical active to encourage a more radiant complexion 💸 |VALUE| This bottle goes for $95 for 30mls, it’s quite an investment but I think it’s well worth it. I use it every morning and you literally only need 1 pump to cover your entire face. Less is really more with this product. It comes in a brown bottle which is super important with vitamin C serums, that they aren’t exposed to light. I also like that it’s in a pump bottle instead of a dropper so you don’t have to worry about excess oxidation, which will make your serum less effective

Vitamin C + me = a bright pair | 😋❤️✨
ONE LOVE ORGANICS - Botanical C Facial Serum Vitamin C has become a key player for many of us, winning our hearts and brightening our complexions. I’m a huge One Love Organics follower and user, as you’ve probably figured out by now, and getting to try out their Vitamin C Facial Serum has been a dream. It has a slightly heftier price tag at $95CAD for 30ml, but you really only need one pump of this stuff to slather onto your whole face. What I love about it: ✨ Vitamin C Ester is a patented form of calcium ascorbate, helpful for skin, antioxidant protection, and boosting our immune systems. Its antioxidant properties help get rid of dead skin cells, and can even help prevent UV damage. ✨ Texturally, this serum feels incredible. It’s so silky and smooths over the skin like a dream. I typically use this at night, as vitamin C can make us more sensitive to the sun…that way, I can follow up my morning routine with a solid sunscreen so I’m not reversing this serum’s effects. ✨ One Love’s plant powered C complex combines a few powerful botanicals that all pack a vitamin C-loaded punch. Layering these on in addition to the vitamin C ester will ensure that you get the most out of this little gem! ✨ The hops extract in this formula helps to stimulate skin circulation, decreasing inflammation and aiding sensitive skin in recovery. I’ve noticed with continued use that my skin is more resilient and I’m never as puffy when I wake up in the morning as I used to be. One Love has such a stellar lineup of products, and this one did not let me down. I know that $95CAD can be a little much for many of us, but if you’re able to spare the cash, I’d say give it a go! It’ll last a good chunk of time and I promise you’ll love the results. 💆🏻‍♀️ What’s your favourite vitamin C product?! This is only the second I’ve tried, so I’d love to hear about some others! 👇🏻 This great, informative photo is credited to the One Love Organics Instagram. ❣️

Empties that I would definitely repurchase!
Krave - The Beet Shield $20 for 50 ml This is hands down the best face spf I have ever tried! No white cast, no weird sunscreen smell, sits well under makeup, AND spf 50. It dries slightly dewy so if I am wearing it alone I will set it with powder, but if I am wearing makeup it is the perfect primer. Have already repurchased twice SUMMER FRIDAYS - CC Me Vitamin C Serum $64 for 1 oz I have super sensitive skin and it is rare that I find a vitamin c serum that doesn’t irritate my skin at all. This one is super gentle but still has noticeable brightening effects. It is a hydrating serum due to the added squalane, and makes my skin so happy. It smells slightly like cinnamon, but in a very subtle and natural way. Will repurchase once I finish my current vitamin c serum HERBIVORE - Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil $58 for 1 oz This oil is so hydrating and soothing and perfect for the winter! I definitely notice my skin is less red when I wake up after using this oil. It has a natural herbal scent but I actually really enjoy it. I’ve gone through 3 minis and will be purchasing a full size very soon SheaMoisture - Red Palm Oil & Cocoa Butter Leave-In or Rinse Out Conditioner $11.19 for 13 oz I have used this both as a leave in and rinse out conditioner, and while it works great for both, I much prefer it as a leave in. Not too sticky and adds the perfect amount of moisture to my dry, curly hair. This paired with a styling gel and my curls are hydrated and defined and so shiny! I can’t even count how many of these I’ve gone through Not Pot - Pineapple CBD gummies ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ $40 for 30 gummies These gummies help me sleep better and feel less stressed through the day. I don’t take them everyday and so I definitely notice a shift in my mood when I do take one. They taste great and not at all like weed. I’ve gone through 3 bottles over the past few months and can’t wait until they restock! #cheriepartner

My favorite lazy nighttime routine - in minis
A good nighttime routine for me has at minimum 3 vital steps: oil based cleanser, water based cleanser, and moisturizer. This simple 4 step routine is my go-to for traveling because it hits all my requirements plus a little something extra! First cleanse: Elemis Pro-collagen cleansing balm This is my absolute favorite first cleanse. It has a jelly like consistency and removes all traces of makeup and spf fairly easily. It does contain some essential oils which can be sensitizing for some people, but has never bothered my sensitive skin. Second cleanse: Youth to the People Superfood cleanser I really appreciate a foaming cleanser that is gentle enough for use twice a day. This is a thin gel consistency that has a gentle lather. I can even use this to remove any eye makeup that was left behind after my first cleanse. Moisturizer: Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask This is such a multi- use product! It can be used as a 20 minute wash off mask, an overnight sleeping mask, or a daytime moisturizer for those with drier skin. It’s full of ceramides to help moisturize the skin. The mask contains niacinamide too which helps even skin tone and visibly minimize enlarged pores. Oil (My bonus product): Herbivore Emerald Oil I love the cbd version of this oil (there is also a hemp one) to add extra hydration and decrease my natural redness. It’s incredibly hydrating, but sinks into the skin super well and doesn’t feel too oily at all. It also has ashwagandha to protect against environmental stressors. #cheriepartner

🌙 CURRENT NIGHTTIME ROUTINE 🌙
My biggest skincare goals right now are focused on texture and hydration. I find it can be challenging to find a routine that is balanced in exfoliants and hydrating/ calming products. I’ve tried to rush my skin into results and it never works, and while I wouldn’t consider this my “holy grail routine” it’s something that’s working for me right now to target specifically texture, without drying out my skin. Here’s what I’m using, and why I love it! 1st cleanse: EARTH HARBOR - Sunshine Dew Antioxidant Cleansing Oil a heavenly smelling, effective oil cleanser that gently removes any sunscreen, makeup, or gunk from the day. 2nd Cleanse: CLARISMA - Cool Ocean Breeze Daily Cleanser this cleanser has really been the driver in retexuring my skin, the fruit enzymes in this cleanser are gentle exfoliants that didn’t give the dead skin cells on my face a chance! It really brightened and purified my skin. Serum: #Intoxicated Cosmetics - Snail Venom Serum[products]#[FiveStars] I just did a results post of this serum, and was amazed and how effective this serum was! Check out the post, you gotta see it to believe it 😉 Eye Cream: FARMACY - Cheer Up Brightening Vitamin C Eye Cream with Acerola Cherry I like this eye cream, nice texture and good brightening results! I’ve enjoyed using this eye cream but will probably go back to BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream when this pot is finished. Treatment: HERBIVORE - Bakuchiol Anti-Aging Serum I love this natural retinol alternative! I’ve been nervous to integrate a retinol into my routine so I’ve been happy to use this alternative as a placeholder. Great hydrating and plumping qualities! Moisturizer: SATURDAY SKIN - Waterfall Glacier Water Cream love the bouncy gel texture of this cream. I like that it’s a little bit cooling upon application, calms my skin and makes me feel ready to catch some zzZZzzZ’s. If my skins feeling really dry I’ll add 1-2 drops of HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil to my moisturizers, this oil is amazing for hydrating, calming and reducing redness! And of course lip care! I always slather on a nice coating of SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm before bed, smells amazing and gives my lips a nice drink! Helps me wake up with soft, hydrated lips. I also have been rotating these three masks and using each once per week! LATHER - Honey Moisture Mask with Propolis Extract : For deep hydration, and soothing dermatitis flare ups. HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask : For resurfacing. I only use this for 8-10mins at a time right now to ensure I’m not over exfoliating or over-drying my skin ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores : For pores, T-zone only!

My honest opinion on Summer Fridays ☁️
Are they worth the Ig hype? Yes. My ultimate favorite products are their lip butter balm, overtime mask, and jet lag mask. I’m not a huge fan or R+R. Lip butter balm: So thick and silky, this could double as a lip gloss! It’s pretty long lasting for a balm and has the sweetest vanilla scent. This is my second tube and I’ll forever repurchase this. I notice after eating and drinking it does wear off a bit but it still gives you that soft feel that other lip balms miss out on. A lot of people complain about the packaging but I think it’s iconic for Summer Fridays. It can get a bit messy but I use that mess as a “cuticle” balm and it works well too. Overtime Mask: I love the pumpkin scent and it’s such a lovely exfoliating mask - it’s not too rough on the skin and it makes it feel so soft. R+R: I’m not a fan of this one. It’s excessively oily and I find that I have to wipe off the excess even after washing the mask off. It just doesn’t leave my skin feeling nice. Self Care Duffle Bag: Could be priced a little lower but it does hold A LOT which I wasn’t excepting. Also just super cute with the SF aesthetic. SUMMER FRIDAYS - R + R Mask SUMMER FRIDAYS - Self-Care Club Duffel Bag SUMMER FRIDAYS - Overtime Mask SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm

I FINALLY picked these up! | 🎉🌞🌸
HERBIVORE - Cloud Nine Favorites Collection We all know it’s nearly impossible to pass up a good sale! Sephora has one on now, and I figured it was the best time to treat myself to this set from Herbivore. I haven’t tried any of their products yet, but you guys seem to LOVE what they’re doing, so its about time! The lowdown on what’s inside: ✨ HERBIVORE - Pink Cloud Rosewater + Tremella Creamy Jelly Cleanser This cleanser is said to remove makeup and impurities while hydrating the skin. Using tremella mushroom, a moisture-retaining powerhouse, soothing rose, and pure squalane, this is meant to be a silky, luxurious cleanse that leaves you feeling clean, without stripping your skin. ✨ HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask This fan favourite mask is gentle on the skin, soothing redness and reducing the appearance of pores. It uses white willow bark (a natural BHA!), fruit enzymes, and blue tansy oil to reduce redness and inflamed acne. I can’t wait to see what the hype is about! ✨ HERBIVORE - Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil For Oily & Acne-Prone Skin Another popular pick, once again including blue tansy, is this beautifully coloured face oil. Additionally, it uses kukui nut and jojoba oil to balance and hydrate, our MVP squalane, and jasmine sambac oil to boost elasticity. ✨ HERBIVORE - Prism 12% AHA + 3% BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum This chemical exfoliant is becoming more popular by the day! A mix of AHAs and BHAs, Prism uses naturally derived chemicals to gently resurface the skin, as well as rosewater to help soothe sensitive spots during the process. ✨ HERBIVORE - Coco Rose Body Polish A delectably-scented body scrub, Coco Rose is highly moisturizing and leaves the skin smelling like a floral, tropical oasis. This scrub has some pink clay mixed in to help detox the skin while you exfoliate and hydrate. After seeing so many of you talk about how in love you are with Herbivore, I’m seriously excited to use these products. The kit was packaged beautifully and really made me feel like I was gifting myself something so luxurious. 💅🏻 Stay tuned to see my in-depth reviews on each of these products! 📝

SERUMS VS OILS ?! WHATS THE DIFFERENCE ?!
I’ve seen this mistake made in many routines, including my own! When first getting into skincare, and experimenting with all sorts of new goodies it can be tough sometimes to understand a products function and what order to apply each product. It took me forever to figure out how to incorporate oils into my routine without just making myself look like a greasy monster 🙄 So I wanted to bring it back to basics and talk about the difference between facial serums and facial oils ✨ SERUMS: ✨ These are a treatment step, serums contain up to 70% active ingredients making them highly potent and results oriented. ✨Serums are made up of small molecules that are able to penetrate and deposit powerful actives into the deeper layers of the skin. ✨Serums can have moisturizing ingredients, but aren’t considered moisturizers in the traditional sense. You need to follow a serum with a moisturizer to create a barrier on top and keep all the good stuff in. ✨You should always use serums before moisturizer and never as a replacement FACIAL OILS: ✨Are best suited as a hydration step, the molecules are much larger meaning they are only serving the outermost layers of the skin. ✨Oils provide a boost of nutrition and hydration, they help nourish and strengthen the skin barrier. ✨Oils should be applied after serums and moisturizer, and can actually be used to replace your moisturizer. ✨ You only need about 2-3 drops of oil to cover your face without leaving a greasy film. A couple of my favourite are: SERUMS: ONE LOVE ORGANICS - Botanical C Facial Serum The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% HERBIVORE - Prism 12% AHA + 3% BHA Exfoliating Glow Serum OILS:HERBIVORE - Emerald Deep Moisture Glow Oil YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Oil

Will you sashay or will you stay? 😔🤚🏼
I thought I'd give some thoughts on skin care products I have tried in 2020. I will talk about more products in future posts, but let's start with this. What I loved ❤ NEOGENLAB - Sur.Medic Azulene Soothing Pepthide Ampoule After my skin got randomly sensitive (currently being screened for lupus), a lot of products I already had in my routine just didn't work for me anymore and would make my skin angry. I needed to repair my skin barrier and use different products from what I used to use for my then acne-prone skin that could take a lot. This product was key in calming my skin and repairing my moisture barrier. This contains 10 peptides, Azulene blue capsule and ceramide capsules. Holy grail! The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' I heard somewhere that for peptides to be effective, you have to use them AM & PM. I use this in my bedtime routine to maintain the effects of the NEOGENLAB ampoule mentioned above. It's cheap and the packaging is glass. Very easy to incorporate this in your routine when taking a break from retinol that can be irritating. NEOGENLAB - Real Rerment Micro Essence I use this after double cleansing at night and it's so good. My skin just drinks it up and it doesn't leave any tackiness. It's super gentle and will give you a boost of hydration after your cleansing step. Been using this every day since this summer and I'm not even halfway done with the bottle. COSRX - Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence My skin has gone through changes this year, but this is one of the products that remained in my routine. I use this in the morning before my serums and it makes my skin looks so great! It's kind of gooey at first, but turn to a watery texture pretty quickly. It's actually impressive how this just sinks into your skin. It helps with my acne scars and post-inflammation hyperpigmentation. One pump is enough for my whole face! BIOSSANCE - Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream Many claim that eye creams are not necessary and I believe them. I personally like to use one because I set my concealer with powder and it can be a little drying. This is lightweight and is a good base before eye makeup. Helped with my fine lines and the packaging is glass. 4 stars cause it's not a necessity. Products I disliked 💔 Perricone MD - Hypoallergenic Firming Eye Cream This eye cream is so heavy and oily it gave me a few milias. Total rip off for the price and it contains palm oil. DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum I incorporated more niacinamide in ny routine and stopped using acids more than twice a week, so this is not a necessity unless you have 100$ laying around. Can be irritating. Kiehl's - Kiehl's Ultra Facial Moisturizer It worked good when I used to be on antibiotics for cystic acne, but now my skin doesn't absorb it, makes me greasy and breaks me out cause it's clogging. I recommend only if you have dry and flaky skin.

MY GO TO SPF 🌞💦
I have to admit, I slept on SPF in skincare for waaaay to long. I’m a summer lover, who’s always chasing a sun kissed glow, but would usually end up with more of a lobster look instead 🦞🙄 I’ve finally come to my senses, and since finding THANK YOU FARMER - Sun Project Water Sun Cream I never leave the house without SPF anymore. 💪🏼 |PERFORMANCE| I’m so impressed with this water based sun cream, it is so light weight and leaves a nice dewy finish. Also ZERO white cast which is amazing. I usually don’t wear makeup over it, and just use it as my final skin care step but it does provide a nice canvas if you do apply makeup over top. 🤲🏻 |TEXTURE| A thin white cream, that turns translucent once spread on the skin. It’s light weight, and absorbs quickly. 👃🏻|SCENT| There’s definitely a faint ‘sunscreen’ smell, but there is also some nice fruity/ floral smells that are more prominent but don’t linger. 💦 |INGREDIENTS| 🌞Phyto-oligo - this is a combination of Althaea Rosea Root Extract and Aloe Leaf extract, that offer anti-inflammatory and moisturizing qualities 🌞Inca Omega Oil - also known as Plukenetia seed oil, is a plant oil loaded with nourishing and moisturizing fatty acids like linoleic acid and oleic adic. It also contains a good amount of Vitamin E! 🌞Bamboo Extract - Can help strengthen skin barrier, builds collagen and help hold moisture on the surface of skin. *this product contains C20-22 alcohols - this is a fatty alcohol, that is good for the skin 💸 |VALUE| I purchased this for $35.50 CAD from Revolve, for a 50ml bottle. Because of the thinner texture, its super easy to spread so you don’t need much to get full coverage. I think it’s important to invest a little more into sunscreens, and find the right one for you. For me, the lightweight feel and the absence of white cast makes it worth every penny.

If my skins feeling really dry I’ll add 1-2 drops of HERBIVORE - Emerald CBD + Adaptogens Deep Moisture Glow Oil to my moisturizers, this oil is amazing for hydrating, calming and reducing redness! And of course lip care! I always slather on a nice coating of SUMMER FRIDAYS - Lip Butter Balm before bed, smells amazing and gives my lips a nice drink! Helps me wake up with soft, hydrated lips. I also have been rotating these three masks and using each once per week! LATHER - Honey Moisture Mask with Propolis Extract : For deep hydration, and soothing dermatitis flare ups. HERBIVORE - Blue Tansy Resurfacing Clarity Mask : For resurfacing. I only use this for 8-10mins at a time right now to ensure I’m not over exfoliating or over-drying my skin ORIGINS - Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores : For pores, T-zone only!

🧼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!

🔋 Superfood cleanser This cleanser does exactly what it says! Having struggled with acne for years and this actually feels like it’s cleaning deep within my pores, It makes my face feel super clean and refreshed without overly drying. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Cleanser Refill 🔋 Superberry dream oil I have acne prone skin and tbh I was scared about oils but this oil is not heavy it absorbs very quickly into the skin, the best way to use this oil is to mix it with your favorite moisturizer for a glowy look.YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask 🔋 Kombucha exfoliation toner I’ve been using this toner as directed for the past two months & I have seen such an improvement with my skin! My acne has cleared, acne scars/redness has faded, my pores have shrunk, and my skin looks so much brighter and healthier. YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner 🔋 Adaptogen activated mist I love this mist! it's super fine and really calming for my sensitive skin. I spritz it on prior to using any treatments or moisturizer, Very hydrating, soothing, and refreshing, It’s easy to control the spray and amount, doesn’t make my face irritated or greasy, Absolutely in love with this product! YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist with Reishi + Ashwagandha

Daytime skin care routine!
I like to keep my daytime routine super simple. First I wash my face with YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser which is I find perfect for my combination skin! Non stripping but yet still makes my skin feel clean. SUMMER FRIDAYS - CC Me Vitamin C Serum I’ve used this for almost 2 months. I only rated it a 3 star because honestly I don’t see it making a huge change in my skin. It does brighten and help with dullness a little. but I don’t see a change in my dark spots. I will use this up but I wouldn’t be re buying it. I’m personally just not a huge fan of it. GLOW RECIPE - Banana Soufflé Moisture CreamI recently just got this hence why I didn’t rate it! It smells amazing just like bananas. It’s nice medium thickness moisturizer. So far I don’t find it super thick on my skin and it doesn’t make my t zone look oily. From what I’ve tried I’d rate it a 4 star. I don’t think this will be enough moisture for me once winter comes but I do think this will perfect for summer. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 I love this sunscreen doesn’t make my face feel oily and doesn’t break me out. Also I love using this under makeup. If you don’t like siliconey feels then i don’t think you’d like this.

I really really need help
Ok so I have no idea whats going on with my skin. I struggle with hyperpigmentation. Wether i pop my pimples or not, It will usually end up scaring or turning darker. Its like a vicious cycle and I cant seem to get my skin clear before my period and the whole pimple and scaring starts again. So I decided to change my routine, since my old one was not doing anything beneficial for my skin. Believing the hype I decided to get “The ordinary products because I dont have to wallet to afford more expensive items and I dont even live in America to shop freely for the items i need. Here my current routine innisfree - Volcanic Clusters Pore Clearing Facial Foam FARMACY - Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser On alternate days ill use The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 5% + HA The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution And lastly The Ordinary - Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin I use the niacinimide before the Hyaluronic acid, and i only use one of the 2 listed cleansers Im not sure if im putting to much on my face but Im feeling really hopeless and i would love if someone explained what is happening to me. Ive obviously purged when i used these products but now my skin is acting like it’s breaking out. Its been almost exactly a month and i dont see any difference in my skin

EMERGENCY DRY SKIN REPAIR!
EMERGENCY DRY SKIN REPAIR!
Ok, so you have dry skin and you messed up. You tried a new cleanser that turned out to be stripping. You didn’t put on enough moisturizer in the winter. Or maybe you did nothing wrong, but your dry skin is mad at you anyway. For me, my most recent disaster was dermaplaning on dry skin ( I know, I know, you don’t have to tell me). The point is, your skin is REALLY dry and probably even a bit flaky. Here’s how to fix it: 1. Use the most basic cleanser you have (or don’t use a cleanser at all 😬). If you need to cleanse because you’ve been wearing makeup or exposed to pollution, use the most basic cleanser you have. If you feel like you can get away with it, try not cleansing just for one night (I KNOW it’s a skincare sin, but one night won’t kill you). 2. Apply a thick moisturizing mask. I personally think that the Farmacy Honey Potion mask works great for this, but there are many that will work. When you remove the mask, do so very gently, and if you feel comfortable, leave a little on and massage into your skin. FARMACY - Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask 3. Apply hyaluronic acid serum(s). Whatever you’ve got probably works. We’re just trying to get as much moisture into the skin as possible. I have been using Glossier’s Super Bounce and Awake’s Glow Pill recently (normally wouldn’t use them both, but this is an emergency). Glossier. - Super Bounce Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin B5 Serum Awake - Glow Pill 4. A lot of moisturizer. I mean, a lot. Apply a thick moisturizer all over your face the way you would normally apply a sleeping mask. Depending on the consistency of the moisturizer, your face should either be really shiny or slightly white at the end of this. I love the Lala Retro cream because it really locks in moisture. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Lala Retro Whipped Cream 5. Sleeping mask. This step is optional, but I highly recommend. Take your hydrating sleeping mask and apply a layer to the especially dry areas (for me, the forehead and cheeks). It may seem like overkill, but we’re trying to pull our skin back from the brink. Extreme measures are necessary. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask Now your skin should be feeling all better! As a note, all of the products you use should be fragrance free or very little fragrance. Hopefully this helps! Am I missing any of your go-to skin savers? Let me know in the comments! I’m always looking for new ways to fix my skin when I inevitably mess it up again.

My face tends to get some redness, but my skin isn’t acne prone at all! 🌿My nightly skincare routine- the first thing I use at night is a cleanser! The cleanser that works great for my skin type is Belif jelly cleanser! This cleanser has never made my face break out, and it doesn’t strip my skin! It helps lock the moisture in! the next product I use is a toner! My favorite one is the indie lee CoQ-10 toner mist! This is amazing for my skin, it hydrates, soothes, and keeps my skin from being dull! It really helps to settle my skin without drying my skin out! The third product I use is serum! My absolute favorite serum that I can’t live without is the drunk elephant b hydra! I have ranted about this product for years now and will never stop using it!

youthtothepeople Hydrate and G
youthtothepeople Hydrate and Glow Dream Mask: This ultra velvety mask boasts some absolutely incredible ingredients (maqui, vitamin c, squalane, and hyaluronic acid) These ingredients work overnight to reveal truly hydrated skin in the a.m. It has been a true blessing in this arctic tundra I that I now live in. herbivorebotanicals Emerald Cannabis Sativa Deep Moisture Glow Oil: This green goddess has quickly become one of my favorite oils ever. Beyond the beautiful hue, this oil contains some amazing ingredients that truly help to soothe irritated skin. The lightweight oil is formulated with hemp seed oil, squalane, and meadowfoam seed oil. It really helps with redness and definitely locks in moisture. Say what you will about overly hyped cannabis/hemp products, but this one really works for me. olehenriksen Banana Bright Eye Creme: Anytime I post a picture with this eye cream, I get quite a few questions about it. So, why do I love it? For one, the texture. This Vitamin C collagen-boosted lightweight cream sits so beautifully under my concealer. It absorbs quickly, yet leaves my under-eye feeling completely moisturized. At first, I didn’t notice any sort of brightening effect. Overtime, I have definitely seen a overall brightening of my eye area. freshbeauty Soy Face Cleanser: This cult favorite cleanser is highly regarded for a reason. It gently dissolves makeup without drying my skin. Beyond cleansing, it leaves my skin feeling plump with each use. Borage seed oil, rosewater, and amino acid-rich soy proteins promote balance and elasticity. It’s so simple, yet effective.

I have been enjoying this bran
I have been enjoying this brand quite a bit. The Honeymoon Glow was a favourite find last year and Green Clean is amazing! Honey Drop moisturiser is a nice light hydrating moisturiser. Green Screen works well under makeup and casual days, I would use something higher in spf and waterproof if out side a lot though. I hate to say this but unfortunately the Honey Potion does nothing for me 😭. Have to keep it real on here, everyone seems to love this mask, but I have two other honey masks that I love more. Again everyone’s skin is different, for me it didn’t do enough, it didn’t do anything bad either, it does feel quite luxurious though!

Sharing the beauty of YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Adaptogen Deep Moisture Cream with Ashwagandha + Reishi This has got to be one of the most hydrating moisturizers I’ve ever tried. And this beauty goes above and beyond moisturizing. This is a fragrance free formula made with Squalane, Jojba and Shae Butter. An Adaptogenic extract blend helps cope with dryness, redness, fine-lines and wrinkles while calming Peptides keep the skin response to environmental stressors in check. Proprietary Adaptogen Blend: Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, and Reishi. The use of adaptogens as medicine, taken internally and applied topically, has been championed by Eastern medicine and Ayurveda for 5,000 years. (Verbiage from their site) . Claims: 100% Vegan ingredients Recyclable packaging Made in USA 🇺🇸 Non-comedogenic No animal testing 🐰 No dimethicone No parabens No phthalates No fragrance I’ve been using this cream for about two weeks now. Out of all the moisturizers I have open I keep reaching for this. I have normal to dry skin and this helps keep it in balance. And I know I always say this, but just a dime-size seriously covers my entire face and neck. My favorites of theirs are - YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Yerba Mate Resurfacing Energy Facial YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask - this one is a must have! Oh so good!!! I have so much admiration for this brand. When you go to their website the first thing you see is their support and dedication to taking a stance in ending racism and well as their long-time support of the LGBTQ community. 100% of the profits from their YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - With Pride Minis Kit 🏳️‍🌈 goes towards GSLEN. This kit has some of the top products. I’m headed to grab myself one right now 🏃‍♀️($34) . #contentcreator
