WEAR YOUR SPF ☺️✨
Wear sunscreen everyday that ends in y! one I’ve been loving lately is the Dr. Jart+ - Every Sun Day Sun Fluid SPF 50+ . ☁️ - ☁️ it’s spf 50+, a lightweight and white cast free formula. it feels cooling/refreshing on the skin which is a nice plus since it’s been so hot + it’s also very hydrating! I find the finish to be a natural subtle glow finish and it’s been playing nice so far. in the world of masks, this doesn’t pill underneath, also reminder WEAR YOUR MASK pls, it hasn’t caused any breakouts or eye irritation either! - It’s bit pricey on Sephora’s site but you can find much better deals on the dr jart website, style Korean, sweetcorea, etc. it meets all my must haves in a sunscreen so it gets my stamp of approval and also it’s definitely recommended by me.

peace out skincare acne serum
the product: PEACE OUT - Salicylic Acid Acne Treatment Serum 34 usd for 1 oz. ⭐️☁️ - what is it? it is a serum with salicylic acid 2%, niacinamide triluronic acid + centella asciatica extract to name a few and these ingredients combined work to: reduce + eliminate acne/blackheads/blemishes, brighten + fade hyperpigmentation, absorb oil + soothe/hydrate the skin to keep it calm. 🪐 - my thoughts: personally after using this for about 1.5 months now, I can say I really enjoy it in my routines. I noticed it does have a very herbal scent, think dr. jart cicapair line, which I don’t mind at all and it fades pretty quickly. It is very soothing, I have noticed breakouts come and go much quicker than before and it’s been great to combat maskne. one thing I really find quite interesting about this product is that it really does fade hyperpigmentation. quick story: about a year ago now, I got bit by something on my face, a bug probably, and it was red, angry + itchy and left behind some pretty prominent scarring. while using chemical exfoliants and wearing sunscreen helped reduced the appearance of it, it peaked earlier this year until adding this in. It looks so much better and I’m pleased with those results. Keep in mind, I use this daily, sometimes twice daily. - conclusion: I’m about 3/4 done with this and will share final thoughts once finished but honestly? I love it. It’s been a great addition to my routines and has played a role in improving my skins appearance. SIDE NOTE: it does have dimethicone in the ingredients which is probably for cosmetic/feel purposes and I haven’t noticed any adverse effects to it. just something to be mindful of! *This was a gifted product but all thoughts are my own.*

your new favorite cleanser
this is a new cleanser on the block and I’m going to tell you why you need it! Dr Dennis Gross - Hyaluronic Marine Makeup Removing Meltaway Cleanser - This is an oil free, lightweight, super nourishing cleanser that is meant to work as an all in one product. It claims to remove and completely dissolve any makeup, oil, grime, dirt and impurities and doing so without stripping your skins natural moisture barrier and without rinsing with water. Say what? - my own experience with that has been completely amazing. It gives me glossier milky jelly vibes with the texture being so jelly like but I prefer this better! It feels like a big comfy hug on my face and feels so cooling, moisturizing and gentle on my skin. I haven’t tried it’s claims with removing makeup in one easy step since I haven’t had a reason to wear any, BUT it’s done an amazing job at removing the day away and helping my skin feel refreshed. - With ingredients like hyaluronic acid, marine algae and kiwi, this is amazing at soothing skin and plumping it to look and feel healthy and happy! I think this would be great for any skin type so I highly recommend. It does retail 30 USD for 5oz and while I don’t usually splurge on cleansers, this one just makes me feel good and adds to the experience of skincare and selfcare.

It’s very easy to blend into a seamlessly, skin like silky matte finish. Perfect for a monochromatic look if you dab a bit on the eyes and also perfect for the achievable drunk blush look without the drunk part. Staying power is quite long lasting and they have a range of shades that would suit a variety of skin tones. Definitely a cutie brand which I’m glad to have discovered.

Oil control clay mask
ERNO LASZLO - Pore Cleansing Clay Mask Retails for 48 USD x perfect for oil control, this product is a clay mask meant to help fight impurities of the skin. It absorbs excess oils while also balancing your skins natural oils, and also gently exfoliating the skin reducing the appearance of pores. x texture wise — it feels very light and almost like a whipped texture. It also has a light baby pink shade to it. x my experience with this has been pleasant. I think it’s a decent enough pore mask and since sometimes i get an oily tzone, I wanted to see how this helped with that. It does help to reduce the amount of oil my skin produces throughout the day, which I appreciate since no one likes looking like an oil slick. It made my skin feel baby soft and it didn’t feel overly drying on the skin. It does have a sight fragrance to it, which I am indifferent to. If you know, I’m not a huge fan of fragrance since I do have sensitivities to some. I plan to keep using this to see how it upholds and if there are any changes in results/function. x this is almost 50 dollars but you do get 3.3 oz. is that worth it? That’ll depend on each individual person. For me, not so much since it isn’t something I use terribly often, definitely not daily use. However, if you struggle hard with oil production and maintaining the control of oil, I would look elsewhere before considering this. I think there are many great oil control products out there for a more budget friendly price. If this has been on your wishlist for a while though, I’d say go for it. x because of the price, fragrance and the fact that I don’t reach for this too often, this gets a 3/5 from me.
