boo this sleeping mask
i’ve used many products from this brand before and honestly they haven’t been my favorite, but they have always don’t their job. one or two of them i absolutely love, but they rest are meh. i’m not sure if anyone else had this issue, but when i tried to gently rub in the product, it just balled up in my face. also not sure if it has done anything for my skin. i will not be buying again.

Toner for pore care and blackheads
⭐️ 𝗥𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄 ⭐️ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Etude House, Wonder Pore ($8-15, iHerb, Stylevana, other k beauty retailers that offer Etude House) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ———————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⇛Beauty (⭐️⭐️): This is a PH balanced toner meant for pure care - cleansing, blackhead removing, balancing, oil controlling, and tightening. It’s fine for balancing the skin after cleansing and prepping for skincare and makeup, but I haven’t noticed any improvement in blackheads or pore refinement. I have issues with blackheads on my nose, and I haven’t seen any difference using this versus any other toner. The second ingredient in this is alcohol and there are a few citrus essential oils, so if you are sensitive, use with caution. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ———————⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⇛Business (⭐️⭐️⭐️, not cruelty-free): I have only used a few products from Etude House, which is a Korean skincare and makeup brand. The overall aesthetic is very cute, and they have a wide range of products directed at the late teens to early 30s demographic. I generally enjoy their products, but I do think they are gimicky. I haven’t yet tried a product I would repurchase. One thing good is that Etude House has wide distribution, so you can find their stuff easily and at various retailers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ——————— ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I purchased this toner
Dr. Bronner’s 18 in 1 pure-castile soap
This amazing soap is technically the first step to my skin care routine, but I wanted to wait and do my review on it after I had already gone over the other products I use because I use this product for multiple uses. ⭐️To start, I use this soap as a face wash. This may be surprising to a lot of people, but this soap is actually perfect for reducing redness and preventing acne. I use 2 drops (do not squeeze the bottle just let it drip out!!) and then I mix it with a little water and gently rub it on my face in circular motions. Since I started using this as face wash my skin has been significantly less red and and has has a better texture as well! ⭐️Another awesome use for this soap is body wash, just let 5-10 drops drip onto your hand or a loofa, dilute with some water and scrub away! This soap is perfect if you have sensitive skin that commonly breaks out in a rash from body wash. ⭐️The final way that I have been using this soap is as a shave cream. All you have to do is take 10-15 drops on your hands and then rub them together to make a lather, then put the lather wherever you want to shave. I have been doing this for a while now and have found my skin is so much softer and I don’t get as many ingrowns. I would buy this soap over and over again, and if you are interested, you can get this soap just about anywhere such as Target, Walmart, and many grocery stores. DR.

Oil control must-have!
OLE HENRIKSEN - Cold Plunge Pore Mask PRODUCT Ole Henriksen claims that this product is a “detoxifying, cooling clay mask that instantly reduces the look of pores, smooths skin texture, and controls oil all day.” This is a mud based mask which has a thick, but smooth paste-like consistency (and a Tiffany blue hue!). The ingredients list features snow lotus and Alpine Willow Herb Extracts, as well as Lactic and Salicylic acids to exfoliate. It can be used all over the face to help control oil production and clean out pores, or as a spot treatment. EXPERIENCE I received this product complimentary from the Ole team in exchange for an honest review when it was released in May of 2018. This product has since become my go-to whenever I have an event or night out and I want my makeup to last. I have combination skin that gets very oily in the t-zone. So, I use this mask as a spot treatment in my t-zone and slightly on the apples of my cheeks to keep the oils at bay – and it works! It keeps me matte for ~24 hours, which is absolutely perfect to me. I also find that my pores are cleaner after use, which is amazing. I would recommend this product to others who have a similar skin type to mine, but recommend that those with dry or sensitive skin steer clear of it. It has a very heavy eucalyptus scent (and a fair amount of coloring agents), which can be irritating to many. Though it does bother me slightly, I am willing to put up with it because of the fantastic results. For $36 for a 3 oz. bottle, I say this is well worth the price! I give this a 4/5 stars because of the scent and coloring, but still recommend you check it out!

Can’t live without my Lumispa!!
I highly recommend the Lumispa if you’re looking to get a deep clean without the irritation! This device is by Nu Skin and features two oscillating heads that pumps out the bad stuff in your pores. It’s covered in antimicrobial silver so it feigns bacteria, and it’s really easy to use in the shower because it’s waterproof! There’s a paired cleanser that has the perfect viscosity for the device. If the cleanser is too thin, the device could tug at your skin, and if the cleanser is too thick, the patented oscillation will not clean your pores right. If you’re interested in the Lumispa, leave a comment and I can help you find it/teach you the correct way to use it! I can also get you a discount too. 💕
