Sensitive Skin Routine
My skin is born sensitive. Sometimes when I change skin care products or when I am exposed to the sun outdoors for too long, the skin on my face will become red or even itchy. On this occasion, I would simplify my skin care process and use soothing but moist products. Then I will introduce 3 steps directly. Step1-Cleanse-Philosophy 3-in-1 Cleanser for face and eyes I do recommend everyone to use a facial cleanser before applying other facial products since it can help us clean our skin deeper which promotes better absorption of subsequent products. Philosophy 3-in-1 Cleanser is my first choice, especially when my skin becomes sensitive. Its scent is a mixture of wood and rose, which is quite fresh and nature. The reason why I love it most is that it is mild and moisturizing with sufficient cleanness power. Step2-Hydrating Mist-Evian As we know, a hydrating mist can be used before moisturizer for an extra boost of hydration or be used throughout the day to refresh and revive makeup. While for sensitive skin, it can also hydrate and refresh our skin when the skin is red or even itchy. In addition, using hydrating mist before serum will give an extra boost of hydration and promote the absorption of the serum. To be honest, Evian Hydrating Mist is the most cost-effective moisturizer I have ever bought. Step3- Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum-Elizabeth Arden Elizabeth Arden is an outstanding brand focusing on skin repair and skin remodeling. When my skin tends to become sensitive, this serum is my favorite. Although it is quite oily at the beginning, it is quite hydrated after a while. If you follow my steps, I believe you would feel your healthy and moist skin the next day.

Serums for dry skin-which is the best?
There are tons of serums in the market, and I am always on the way of trying all the popular products and those niche brands. Today I want to share three products I been using, incliding two famous ones and one from Algenist, a brand comes from biotech lab. I have dry skin and I am 23 right now, so what I expect for a serum is either it can make my skin stable and hydrated, or it has some great ingredients and I can see the results. GENIUS Liquid Collagen from Algenist ALGENIST - GENIUS Liquid Collagen Let’s start with the GENIUS Liquid Collagen from Algenist. This is a vegan collagen serum that helps to restore skin’s natural bounce and resilience while diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The ingredients include patented Alguronic acid that is sourced from algae and can minimize lines, Active vegan Collagen that helps strengthen skin and improve texture, and Microalgae oil to hydrate skin. I almost finish this sample and I really like it. The texture is quite fresh and absorbed quickly. I can feel the hydration and suppleness to skin, so I can give it 5/5, recommend! Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate from Shiseido SHISEIDO - Ultimune Power Infusing Serum Concentrate The next thing is the Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. I already used up one 50ml bottle, which is $110. The description says it is a fast-absorbing serum for all skin types that hydrates, strengthens and firms, and also boosts the effects of any other serum or moisturizer layered over it. As you can tell on the picture, it is a lightweight fluid, which contains gingko, shiso, thyme, and lotus germ that will smooth the skin. I think it does make my skin more moisturizing and won’t conflict with other products I used afterwards, but I didn’t notice the firm part. It’s definitely suitable for all skin types, but the price is a little high for me. I think it is quite similar to the Advanced Night Repair from Estee Lauder. I could give it 4/5. Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum from Elizabeth Arden Elizabeth Arden - Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum The last one is Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum from Elizabeth Arden. This is an oily product that contains ceramide, Tsubaki oil and vitamin E, etc., which can help replenish and restore the ceramide that skin loses with age and reduce the appearance of lines. I do feel my skin touches softer and looks more radiant after using for several days, but I feel that it is hard to be absorbed by my skin and I think it ca be too oily for me even I have dry skin. But it is more affordable than the other two serums, so if you have dry skin and want to start anti-aging without spending a lot, you can give it a try. For me, I can give it 3.5/5. So here comes the winner for me- Liquid Collagen from Algenist. And for serums, I always recommend trying samples first and making decisions after using for a while because they are usually expensive. Hope my opinions can be helpful!
Perfect Match for Skin Recovery
Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules+First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream Main Ingredients: Ceramindes 1,3&6, Tsubaki oil, Fatty Acides / Colloidal Oatmeal, Shea Butter, Ceramide-3 Ceraminde can be said a powerful ingredient which can moisturize and maintain hydration. It also effective in recovering skin barrier, enhancing skin elasticity and anti-aging. My skin is dry and a bit sensitive. I would add both Elizabeth Arden Advanced Ceramide Capsules and First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream into my night care routine. The main ingredient of Aden capsules Ceraminde aims at repairing and recovering. one capsule at a time, which is exactly the amount of the entire face needed. The texture of it is essence oil. It absorbs well when massage it. I can feel my skin absorbs enough water immediately. It's so so hydrated. FAB cream contains ceramide and shea butter, which can soothe the skin and add necessary oil to my skin to maintain the balance. It is creamy texture, but it is very light and thin. It has a good repair effect. When experiencing the season changing or my skin is sensitive, the combination of these two Is my savior. Getting up the next morning with a super soft and not oily skin.

✨ The Facial Spray to End All Facial Sprays ✨
Hey M8’s! I’m all about glowing skin and ideally, I want my skin to glow without highlighters, concealers and foundations. I’ve tried many different facial sprays and almost all of them made my skin glow - the catch was that this glow would not last through the day. They would also make my not usually greasy skin, look very greasy. The Evian Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray changed all of this for me. evian - Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray The Evian Facial Spray claims to: Hydrate / Moisturise: I was a little skeptical about this claim as it is mineral water; I thought that it may wash off my moisturiser and eye gel but it didn’t! I used the spray like a setting spray (minus the makeup) so I had moisturiser and eye & brow gel under it. It definitely felt like my skin had another moisture barrier and did not wash anything off. ￼Refresh: It’s cool mineral water (if stored correctly). The product sprays out of the bottle lightly and feels incredibly refreshing (similar to the way the Morphe Continuous Setting Mist sprays). To test out this claim I used the product after work and it definitely made my skin look very fresh! This would make the product great in summer because it has proven to be long lasting. ￼Tone: The facial spray removed as much dirt as other toners I have used before. Witch Hazel toner normally removes any traces of dirt from my skin, the Evian facial spray is not as good as Witch Hazel in this area. The product instructs that you can spray it several times a day - I obtained the results above off of just one spray! This spray is the best facial spray I have ever used and I will definitely be buying it again! It can be used at any time of the day or night - and even as a setting spray! Most importantly it kept my skin glowing all day with no greasy look at 5:00pm!😂 If you are in Australia 🇦🇺 you can pick up one of these at your local Chemist Warehouse for $8.01 for 300ml / 10.1 fl. oz.- a bloody bargain if you ask me! Rating: 9/10 ￼Lost 1 point for not being able to tone as well as Witch Hazel. Thanks for reading M8’s!! May God bless your skin and mine !💋
My skincare (normal to oily sensitive skin)
My current routine! I have ups & downs & some I want to improve but this is what it’s currently at! Not pictured: TATCHA - Calming Foaming Enzyme Powder Absolutely love! Was going back & forth between this version & the one for oily skin but this one is juuuuuust right for my picky skin!! Pictured: (in order of use) TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener Omg-it’s a game changer! This stuff may just look like fancy water (lol who am I kidding-I use evian - Brumisateur Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray so yeah-THATS fancy water but I love it! lol) but this stuff is 100% the real deal! I’ve noticed that products glide one & I don’t have as much of the shiny effect after putting on my skincare routine! Yay! DRUNK ELEPHANT - Shaba Complex Firming Eye Serum Ok so warning on this one-you’ll never use a full pump unless you share with 2 other people at the same time-this pump is stupid-I hate it but the product so far has done a good job & hasn’t made me run to go find a new one right away-could it be improved...? Yeah-but it’s a good option for me for now 😊 also-I don’t like using this by itself cuz it’s drying... so for a fix to that I added.... DRUNK ELEPHANT - C-Tango Multivitamin Eye Cream One again-you don’t need a full pump unless you’re sharing-no one has that much surface area to cover with this...ugh. This is the step that was missing when I just was using the firming serum-this is hydrating & goes after because it’s thicker. The combo works for me. Would I rather have 1 product? Yes. Would I rather have a better pump that doesn’t portion out share sizes of product? Yes.... am I rushing to Sephora to find a new one? Ha! No.... Curology - Curology formula My 2 cents on those people who hate this? It’s not for you & that’s ok! But dang does this work for me!! It’s a must have!! Love it!! -or- never and DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum I haven’t used this enough to rate but this is supposedly suppose to help with dark spots & pores? We shall see tester size...we shall see... TATCHA - The Water Cream Omg moisture heaven! Smells like a spa, glides on like a dream AND has gold in it? Sign me up! This stuff is amazing-I love it & it does wonders for me! Add ons! TATCHA - THE SERUM STICK Not in love-good for dry spots or singular areas every once in a while but meh-not worth it & not a fave of mine. TATCHA - Luminous Dewy Skin Mist Also-not in love. Is it nice when I’m dried out? Yeah! Does it last? Nooooot really? Meh-I have it I’ll use it & I won’t buy again... TATCHA - Silken Pore Perfecting Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 PA+++ Meh-this is just....meh. Again will use it up & not rebuy....
September Empties: mini edition!
Today I’m doing mini Monday a little different! I used up a ton of products in the month of September, including lots of mini’s while traveling. So today I’m featuring my thoughts on the mini’s I finished. Stay tuned for my full size empties tomorrow! ✨ . . 🤷🏽♀️ voir - Sunrise Rituals: Signature Shampoo voir - Sunset Rituals: Signature Conditioner : Nice but I have long hair and it’s really hard to tell my thoughts with a tiny packet! But it did smell amazing. . 👎🏼 ORIGINS - High-Potency Night-a-Mins Mineral-Enriched Oil-Free Renewal Cream : this is a nice thick moisturizer for night time. But I can’t get past the smell. It reminds me of some bad fruity drink I had in college 😂😬 . 👎🏼Kiehl's - Calendula Serum-Infused Water Cream : this is just way too light weight and not moisturizing enough for my skin type. You might like this if you’re oily. . ❤️ philosophy - Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Shower, Bath & Shave Gel : yess this is the lemon custard and it smells soo good! . 👎🏼 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 : this is SO greasy I can’t stand it. . 🤷🏽♀️ DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream : I don’t get the hype behind this. It’s also too greasy for me. And I’m not supporting DE right now. . 🤷🏽♀️ Milk MAKEUP - Kush Lip Balm : I like it! But not extremely long lasting. It did melt and get messy though. Would maybe repurchase on sale. . 🤷🏽♀️ NARS - Climax Mascara : nice for volume but it dried out quickly and flaked a lot. . ❤️ CLINIQUE - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm : yes really enjoyed this. Would get on sale. Probably will save this little tub to put some balm from my full sizes in for future travel! . ❤️ REDKEN - One United Multi-Benefit Treatment Spray : yes a solid leave in conditioner!
Save yo $$$
I’m taking back a previous review because after a while, this product joined a list of products I would never use again. Sorry, HERBIVORE - Moon Fruit Superfruit Night Treatment but you just ain’t it. This is *meant* to be an exfoliating night cream but I feel like it did nothing but clog my pores. I don’t know what happened but one day it just started pilling every time I used it. So rundown of how it went: at first I felt like it made my skin feel smooth when I used it. But after it being open for about 3 months, the texture changed. If I used it with any other products, it pilled. If I used it alone, it pilled. So I ended up not using it. The pilling caused my skin to break out ❌❌ I feel like a 3 month shelf life is RIDICULOUSLY SHORT especially for that dang price. Not to mention, I left it sit like another 6 months without using it because I was holding off tossing it for some reason, and it was MOULDY 🤢 so that’s a total of 9 months before it was rancid. Long story short, save your money unless you want to use only this every night for about a month and use it all up immediately. Just not worth it to me
HERBIVORE-Moon Fruit Superfruit Night Treatment
I’ve had this cream for a while now and I have been using it for my neck, chest and pits. I realized how important it is to also take care of those areas since they also get wrinkly and saggy when the time comes 😢 Anyway, it contains fermented Maqui Berry extract, a known superfood for its antioxidant properties and Sunflower seed oil which helps aging skin. It’s said to be recommended for ‘turning back your skin age time’ which clearly isn’t the first thing I look for in any product (yet). 〰️ PROS: - Lightweight - Moisturizing and absorbs well without leaving any sticky, greasy feeling - That’s (90g) of cream - Reusable packaging CONS: - I find the scent quite strong so this ended up as a cream for other areas. - Contains allergens and non-EU approved ingredients - May trigger fungal acne 〰️ I’m so excited to empty this cream and it took me almost a year haha!
LUXURY FOR DRY SKIN. Ceramide Skincare.
✰ 𝕕𝕣𝕪 𝕤𝕜𝕚𝕟 𝕤𝕒𝕧𝕚𝕠𝕣 ✰ seisojbeauty I never had a serious issue with dry skin until I moved to San Francisco. Spring time in the bay causes my eczema to flair up and my skin breaks out like crazy from being so dry! Seisojbeauty has the most luxurious and effective hydrating collection I’ve tried yet! Seiso has a special ceramide complex that is all natural, the Cerakari-20 complex. This complex helps replenish moisture, increase elasticity, restore the skin barrier, and of course give a gorgeous GLOW! The prices are on the high end side, but these products feel both in hand on the skin like true luxury. Using them is like my own personal spa experience. seiso JBEAUTY - Fuwafuwa Foaming Cleanser the most hydrating cleanser I’ve ever used. Normally foaming cleansers tend to strip the skin, but this is velvety smooth and so soft. My skin feels baby butt soft after using with no tightness. This is $38 and I would honestly purchase this on my own! seiso JBEAUTY - Pure Ceramide Concentrate feels really great on the skin. It is said to be the most effective ceramide on the market. I need to use this longer to see more results. This is $155 and that price is real scary lol, BUT this performs as well as it says it does, I will consider this being a Klarna or Afterpay purchase. seiso JBEAUTY - Ceramide Moisture Milk skin conditioner said to help plump and firm the skin. I love that it is more layered hydration for my skin, it really needs it currently. This is $95 and I am absolutely obsessed with this. I will be saving money and purchasing more when I’m out. seiso JBEAUTY - Water Velvet Cream a dream! This is like the belief aqua bomb, but better! This is the perfect last step to seal in my whole routine. It is a water based gel type of texture and is so silky smooth. Absorbs into the skin beautifully and adds a gorgeous glow. Wears great under makeup. $65 is way more than what I would typically pay for a moisturizer, but I really love this and the experience that I would spend the coin on it! The pricing is quite high, but let me tell you that these products have changed my skin so much. My dry skin is under control and my breakouts are so minimum! If you’re willing to spend the money on Tatcha, then I would definitely consider this brand. These products were gifted to me, but all thoughts are my own.
