Great spot treatment!
Just got this as part of PETER THOMAS ROTH - Acne-Clear Essentials 5-Piece Kitand was pleasantly surprised by it! It is almost like a spot treatment and concealer in one, for some skin tones! It also makes the area it’s applied to matte, which helps cover it or make it easier to apply concealer on top of. It has helped shrink the size of a breakout I had on my forehead, so I’ll call it a win so far!PETER THOMAS ROTH - Acne Spot & Area Treatment
I need advice for my skin please

My skin is dehydrated all the time and pores are awful and haven’t gotten any better so need recommendations please! I am also open to makeup recommendations! It’s hot here so something that can withstand sweat and keep my face from getting super dry.

My Favorite Exfoliating Products
I know a lot of ppl believe that physically exfoliating can harm the skin. However, I am not of those people. I like to use both Physical and Chemical exfoilants and believe they each have their own benefits as long as you’re using the correct products for your skin and nothing too harsh. Murad - AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser - This is my Holy Grail Exfoliating Cleanser. It’s has a blend Of salicylic, Lactic and Glycolic acid to polish away dull, dry skin without irritation. The “beads” in the product are very fine tiny jojoba beads which adds more moisture and hydration so my skin doesn’t dry out. It Reveals smoother texture and a brighter younger looking complexion. PETER THOMAS ROTH - Firmx Peeling Gel - I love to use the gel when my skin is feeling really sensitive but I still need it exfoliate. It doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals or Abrasive beads, it’s a light gel that you rub on your face and the dead skin literally rolls off! It contains Enzymes from fruit and Cellulose to effectively remove impurities and purify clogged pores. My skin is always super smooth after, this is perfect for someone with sensitive skin. JUICE BEAUTY - GREEN APPLE Peel Full Strength Exfoliating Mask - juice Beauty is a great organic, vegan, clean beauty brand that uses all natural ingredients. This peel I also have in the Sensitive Skin Version. It uses acids derived from fruits to give you a brighter complexion. It does have a thick texture and an odd smell, but for the benefits it’s worth it. Murad - Intensive-C Radiance Peel - This is a chemical peel that’s a Rich Gel cream with antioxidants, Glycolic acid and Indian Fig Extract refine skin by gently dissolving dead skin cells and improves texture and tone. Potent Vitamin C enhances radiance and luminosity. This product is definitely the strongest of the chemical peels I own but it really does brighten and reduce my pores.

PTR Mask Reviews!
🎶 These are a few of my favorite things 🎶 🌹🌹PETER THOMAS ROTH - Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask ￼￼￼Claims: Helps improve the signs of aging, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration, dullness and sagging as it strengthens and tones of the look of skin. ￼￼￼My thoughts: This mask is super hydrating, and does help with plumping as well. I use it every time after I use the incredible The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution, in order to keep the peel from drying me out. I keep the Rose Stem Cell mask in the fridge for a bonus cooling effect! I also sometimes use a thin layer as the last step in my nighttime routine for overnight hydration. ￼￼Would I repurchase? Probably, to be able to keep using it after the peel. Right now I have 2 jumbo jars (got a BOGO deal on QVC!) and a small jar, so I won’t have to worry about repurchasing anytime soon. 🎃 🎃PETER THOMAS ROTH - Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer Claims: Helps address the appearance of dull, aging complexion in three ways: by exfoliating with Pumpkin Enzyme, peeling with Alpha Hydroxy Acid, and polishing with Aluminum Oxide Crystals. My thoughts: Ob.sessed. Not just the smell of pure fall when you open it, but I’ve seen amazing results after just 10 minutes! Brighter, more even skin. Would I repurchase? Absolutely! ￼￼ 🌟 🌟PETER THOMAS ROTH - 24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask ￼￼￼ Claims: Helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin looking silky smooth, firmer, radiant, revitalized, and youthful. My thoughts: I tend to use it on my forehead when I multi-mask because that’s where my most prominent wrinkles are. I like it, but I don’t think it’s a miracle in a jar or anything. Would I repurchase? Not for full price, I don’t think it’s worth it. But if I bought the mask set again I wouldn’t mind having this on hand. 🥒 🥒PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator ￼￼￼Claims: Helps soothe, hydrate, and detox the look of skin with botanical extracts. My thoughts: It hydrates well, but I prefer the Rose Stem Cell over this one (they’re very similar to me). Would I repurchase? Probably not. 🌚 🌚PETER THOMAS ROTH - Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask (The best emoji I could find because this is how it makes my face look 😂) ￼￼For details, see my full post about this mask. This one snuck up on me when it comes to how much I love it! 🌊 🌊PETER THOMAS ROTH - Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral-Rich Atomic Heat Mask ￼￼For details, see my full post about this mask. Since that post I’ve started using it to open up my pores before using a declogging mask (like the Irish Moor Mud!). I can’t say for certain that it is beneficial to use it this way, but it helps me remember to use it! ‼️ BOTTOM LINE: These masks are all pretty stellar. There are a few great ways to try them without breaking the bank, see comments!
Face masks galore!!
I can confidently say that the biggest contributing factor to my skincare success as of late is....🥁🥁🥁 face masking. I face mask almost every. single. day. Depending on what my face needs that day. Here’s a peek at my current collection, a few missing bc I didn’t feel like taking them out of the fridge ☺️ Current favorites for various purposes: ￼￼Declogging pores: PETER THOMAS ROTH - Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask ￼￼￼Exfoliating: PETER THOMAS ROTH - Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer ￼￼￼Depuffing: CLARINS - V-Facial Intensive Wrap ￼￼￼Eye mask: pixi - DetoxifEYE (feel amazing after a long day of zoom calls!!) ￼￼￼Just all around magically making my skin smooth and even and glowy: The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution which I always always follow up with PETER THOMAS ROTH - Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask I also LOVE multi-masking — I often put a charcoal/declogging mask on my nose, a lifting mask on my forehead, and a depuffing mask on my cheeks/under my jawline. Throw on some eye gels and you’re sure to freak your husband out like I do regularly!

super ingredient: VITAMIN E 🔍
have you heard of vitamin E? this super ingredient is fairly new to the mainstream cosmetic scene, but there’s a lot of promising claims including: -moisturizing -slowing the effects of free radicals -fights inflammation -antioxidant -may promote wound healing because the data on vitamin E is still developing, make sure you do a patch test if you have a history of allergic reactions to skincare. YMMV! some of my absolute favorite skincare products have this super ingredient in common. Then I met you - Living Cleansing Balm part one of the duo cleansing system, this balm is incredibly luxe and gentle. it’s an almost therapeutic experience, and it removes makeup SO effectively. the best part of this balm is it leaves your skin still feeling soft and supple, no harsh stripping! PETER THOMAS ROTH - Peptide 21 Wrinkle Resist Serum this serum is VERY expensive, but one of the only things I’ve tried that I can say is truly worth every penny. I have used this when I have stubborn cystic acne and this was the only thing that helped clear my skin. it’s extremely hydrating and can be used on your eyes as well. if I could only use one serum for the rest of my life, it’d be this one. it has all sorts of great ingredients in it, including vitamin E! Sweet CHEF - Sugarcane + Vitamin E Lip Sleeping Mask this lip mask looks like the glossiest, yummiest gloss. but it’s a mask! I love using it overnight, but I’ve worn it out and about as well. vitamin E is one of the main ingredients and I can honestly say it hydrates my lips beautifully. have you tried vitamin E? #cheriecreator #cheriepartner
PEPTIDES. Are you considering a peptide serum but not quite sure what they are or what they do? Simply put, peptides are the building blocks of proteins, including keratin, collagen, and elastin. They signal your cells to produce more collagen (which happens to be one of the major building blocks of the skin). By applying them directly to your skin you’re telling your body it needs to make more collagen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Synthetic peptides are used to support and boost skin proteins and the 3 most popular include signaling peptides, neurotransmitter-affecting peptides, and carrier peptides, which each work and benefit the skin in different ways. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve been consistently using a peptide serum for a few years now and find them to be an essential part of any anti-aging routine. Here are some of my faves: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ HYDROPEPTIDE Power Serum Line Lifting Transformation* contains 4 Volumizing Peptides, 4 Plumping Peptides, 3 Relaxing Peptides and 2 Preservative Peptides to offer maximum and superior anti-aging benefits. It is pricey at $144 for 1 oz/ 30 mL but it’s also packed with antioxidants and growth factors which gives it a real bang for your buck! HydroPeptide - Power Serum Line Lifting Transformation ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ PETER THOMAS ROTH Peptide 21™ Wrinkle Resist Serum* contains a 73% Peptide and Neuropeptide Complex that helps to visibly reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. I really like the lightweight lotion consistency of this formula and so far have been happy with the results. $125 for 1 oz/ 30 mL PETER THOMAS ROTH - Peptide 21 Wrinkle Resist Serum ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ DR. JART+ Peptidin™ Firming Serum with Energy Peptides* contains an Eight-Peptide Complex that replenishes and recharges fatigued, depleted skin. At $48.00 for 1.35 oz/ 40 mL this is the most budget-friendly of the bunch and a great option for those looking to incorporate peptides for the first time. Dr. Jart+ - Peptidin Firming Serum with Energy Peptides
Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Bright & Plump Cream
This is a thick and creamy moisturizer. It’s supposed to brighten your skin. Upon application, the thick cream becomes lightweight and absorbs quickly into your skin. I noticed when I use it, my skin is instantly brighten. I’ve been using it since September. As the weather becomes colder, my skin becomes dull and dry. This moisturizer helps with both. However, it doesn’t keep my skin moisturized. I apply a Hyaluronic acid serum before I apply the moisturizer. This helps keep my skin moisturizer and bright. The main ingredients are 10% THD Ascorbate, 3% vitamin E, and 2% Ferulic Acid. It helps brighten and firm your skin. It helps with anti-aging too because it has hydrolized collagen. The collagen helps restore the youthfulness in your skin. This moisturizer is definitely worth trying. It is on the higher cost side of moisturizers. However, it combines the hydration you get from a moisturizer and the brightened from a vitamin C serum. Great moisturizer for all skin types! Price: $68 Rating: 4/5

Peter Thomas Roth Potent-C Serum and Scrub
Killer duo courtesy of @peterthomasrothofficial . Love PTR products, as well as Vit C products, so you bet these two have been a great addition to my routine. Cannot say anything about the serum that hasn’t already been said. Gentle on the skin, no irritation, feels hydrating and works slowly, but surely. After using it for around a month I can confidently say that it helps to even out the skin tone and bring down the intensity of dark spots. The scrub is great as well. It’s not too rough, but it makes my skin feel smooth and refreshed after I use it. If you’re looking for something to help you with dark spots / hyperpigmentation, I think you better use the serum, since it’s a leave in product. The scrub is a great addition, but it alone won’t help with dark spots. Overall, I like both of these products for different reasons, and highly recommend them 🙌 . . . both gifted
Yup yup yup I totally agree with this post - Vitamin C ingredients in skincare. I started using skincare that contains Vitamin C and I could see the difference. My skin is more radiant and with more even skin tone. This is my second bottle of PTR Potent-C power serum. I totally loving it. It is lightweight and not sticky. I’ve been only using during the night so far (because the price is quite a pinch for me). It is suitable for all skin type I would say. It is totally fine if layer with products containing Hyaluronic acid.

New AM & PM routines!
This is a major update to my previous routine post from a few months ago! I’ve been wanting to switch to primarily using one brand, and I just LOVE Sunday Riley. One of my favorite things is that all of her products are designed to work together — so minimal fear of negative interactions! And, if you check out my before/after post from a few weeks ago, you’ll see why I’ll be a longtime SR user!
TWO WEEK DIFFERENCE!
I’m thrilled to share my Before & After of just TWO WEEKS of progress after switching to an almost all Sunday Riley routine (and face masking 5-6 times a week!). I took these in the same room with the same lighting, no products or makeup on my face. I thought maybe one was in the morning and one at night, but just checked the time stamps and they were within 5 minutes of each other! AM: 1)SUNDAY RILEY - Ceramic Slip Cleanser 2)SUNDAY RILEY - Pink Drink Firming Resurfacing Essence 3)SUNDAY RILEY - U.F.O. Ultra-Clarifying Face Oil 4)SUNDAY RILEY - CEO 15% Vitamin C Brightening Serum 5)SUNDAY RILEY - Auto Correct Brightening and Depuffing Eye Contour Cream 6) SPF (SR supposed to be dropping one next spring, but I will share another post about my current favorite SPFs soon!) PM: 1)SUNDAY RILEY - Blue Moon Clean Rinse Cleansing Balm (usually leave on for 20-30mins) 2)SUNDAY RILEY - Ceramic Slip Cleanser 3)SUNDAY RILEY - Pink Drink Firming Resurfacing Essence 4)SUNDAY RILEY - A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum 5)SUNDAY RILEY - Luna Sleeping Night Oil 6)SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment 7)GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Eye Sleeping Mask 8)SUNDAY RILEY - Saturn Sulfur Spot Treatment Mask(if needed) 9)PETER THOMAS ROTH - Un-Wrinkle Night 10)SUNDAY RILEY - Juno Antioxidant + Superfood Face Oil (if needed for extra hydration)

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench SPF 45
The weather might be getting cooler, but that doesn’t mean you should be putting away your sunscreen! A lot of people think that because the sun is not as hot in the winter, they’re safe from its rays. Unfortunately, that’s incorrect, and you can still get a sunburn even in December. Make sure to protect your skin all year around. Right now, my favorite sunscreen that gets the job done is Water Drench Broad Spectrum SPF 45 from @peterthomasrothofficial It has a super light, but extremely hydrating texture that keeps my skin safe and moisturized all day. . . . . gifted
what better day to talk about SPF than sunday? ☀
let me start by saying, I was raised thinking that because I was brown, I didn’t need sunscreen (laughing sweat emoji) thankfully, that misconception has been dispelled. EVERYONE needs sunscreen and I now LOVE it. it’s arguably my favorite part of my AM routine. I love changing it up, I love testing different formula, and I love talking about it lol. here’s the ones I’ve currently been rotating through, with some quick thoughts: PETER THOMAS ROTH - Max Sheer All Day Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion max sheer SPF 30 this is one of my top 3 favorite formulas. it is hydrating without being greasy, it sinks in quickly, and it leaves my skin looking and feeling plump and beautiful. no white cast on me! PETER THOMAS ROTH - Water Drench Hyaluronic Hydrating Moisturizer SPF 45 SPF 45 is a tad bit more hydrating, but the issue I ran into was TASTING THE SUNSCREEN no matter how I applied it. I didn’t apply it on my lips but I swear it seeped in through my skin. for those reason, I’m out. lol, jk, but I don’t reach for it like my other ones. no white cast on me. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Weightless Liquid Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 weightless mineral SPF 30 I went through the ringer with this one, lol. the first time I applied it, it was perfect. I didn’t even feel it, BUT my skin got insanely dry? legit dehydrated. the second time, I applied a little more, no dryness, but it felt super heavy and greasy. third time, I applied it with a stipple brush, and it felt like a CC cream. it’s tinted so it provides a smidge of coverage, which is nice for my no makeup days. I read some people had issues with piling, I found it did best over heavier creams. no white cast! Supergoop! - Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 glow screen SPF 40 I loved this the first time I applied it. then, when I realized I wasn’t applying the right amount for my face (1/4 teaspoon), I had to admit it felt pretty heavy and greasy :(. no white cast, but pretty shimmery for all over the face. not my fave. dear, klairs - Soft Airy UV Essence SPF 50 PA ++++ soft airy essence SPF 50 the is also in the top 3 group. incredibly lightweight, the most protection, and zero white cast. it also dries down to the most beautiful satin finish. love love love this one. SPF Rx - Ultra-Clear Daily Skin Hydrator SPF 50 ultra clear daily hydrator SPF 50 this is it, my favorite SPF. well, one of three at least. I absolutely love what this does to my skin. my skin feels so firm, but not tight. even when using the 3 finger method, this sinks in seamlessly. plays perfectly with the rest of my routine, never experienced any white cast, piling or tasting (?) lol. it’s also mineral based so I can’t imagine this formula could be anymore perfect if it tried.
Fresh af Morning Routine ☀️
YOUTH TO THE PEOPLE - Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser great for all skin types as it cleans without stripping. CAUDALIE - Grape Water great refreshing water filled with a great antioxidant, resveratrol which is anti-aging as well. Perfect before makeup, after makeup, during the day or as a refresher💁🏼♀️ THAYERS - Cucumber Facial Mist mine doesn’t have a mister, but this product is awesome and does not irritate at all. I even use it on my eyes and there’s zero stinging. Leaves your skin prepared for your other skin caring steps. Goos to use as a cleanser before makeup when your feeling lazy 😅 FARMACY - Very Cherry Bright 15% Clean Vitamin C Serum with Acerola Cherry Good serum, not bothersome, could be a bit tingly when you start using it if you’re sensitive. Skin looks brighter but it’s definitely a slower worker than other vitamin C’s. I would say the serumy consistency and other soothing ingredients make it a recommendation from me to my sensitive skin peers out there. (MALIN+GOETZ) - Revitalizing eye gel Definitely a gel but it’s almost a cream gel hybrid. My undereyes are really dry and this product really hydrates them and serves as an undereye primer as well without feeling like a grease ball. Definitely recommend if you’re undereyes are dry and need some hydration (*not moisturizing just hydration*) Curél - Moisture Facial Milk Great day time moisturizer especially for summer time and for those who have dry/normal to oily skin. Not those it only protect your skin barrier with it’s ceramide filled formula but it softens and hydrates, keeping skin smooth and supple. Tip: if you want more hydration or glow just add some drops of any oil you have or mix it with another moisturizer that might be to heavy on it’s own and voila, you got yourself a summer time moisturizer ✨👌🏻 L'ORÉAL - Pure-clay Cleansing Mask for Dull Skin definitely brightens and pulls gunk out from the skin, the only downside would be that it is pretty drying but when you’re skin feels really congested and gross I definitely recommend this. Tip: use as spot treatment to suck out the inflammation and gunk from the pimples. Hope as always that you found my reviews useful and my video informative any questions feel free to always ask🧡 Ps. I used Good Molecules Niacinamide before applying the Vit C. Sorry it wasn’t recording😫
THAYERS-Cucumber Facial Mist
Today I am brightening my feed (and hope yours as well) with products from amazing Canadian leaping bunny brand 𝐋𝐈𝐅𝐀𝐍𝐂𝐄 Lifance is a generation of skincare with clean complex formulas that are highly effective to deliver the results we expect and deserve. Ingredients chosen for LIFANCE formulas are hydrating, skin plumping, reduce redness, reduce inflammation, minimize fine lines and increase cell renewal. All formulas are proudly cruelty and toxin free with the most potent, rare, scientifically proven botanical and marine ingredients in the highest concentrations possible. Restore Botanical Facial Cleanser is non-foaming cream, which not only cleanses, but makes skin soft and hydrated. Renew Serum Botanical retinol with 10% vigna botanical retinol + goji berry oil + alchemilla vulgaris + calendula extract. This lightweight emulsion with pleasant natural scent absorbs in seconds, gives immediate hydration, plumps and rejuvenates skin. I can use it alone or with moisturizer on top and it works great both ways. Revitalize Day Moisturizer with peptides, HA and botanicals is a great addition to serum. It hydrates, moisturizes, plumps, brightens skin, makes fine lines less visible and skin tone more even. I like how comfortable my skin feels after applying it. Purifying French Pink Clay Facial Mask with probiotics, botanicals and squalane detoxifies, reduces inflammation and gently exfoliates skin, makes skin bright and clear, while complex of vitamins and minerals protects and repairs the skin. Overall impressions are great, all these products are right up my alley, their formulas are clean, but with science proven ingredients, which make them highly effective and absolutely safe for health. Now I want more these beautiful bright bottles on my vanity 🖤
Just realized that I’ve never posted about my favorite local brand yet so here’s one dedicated to them! In Her Element is all about using only the cleanest of ingredients (no fillers whatsoever!) and seeking new formulations that is highly effective. They promise only one thing: maximum glow for minimum effort—which I am all about. Low pH Rose Gel Cleanser - one of my top 3 favorite cleansers ever. This has a pH level of 5.5-6 (perfect for maintaining your skin’s moisture barrier) and contains active botanical ingredients that gives you brighter skin. Lathers just the right amount and smells absolutely beautiful! Glow Job 5% Glycolic Gel Cream - I’m going to be honest, I haven’t used this consistently enough but just to give a little info, claims to get rid of dark spots and dull skin gently. Has AHA that is able to penetrate into your skin to unveil bright skin. Petal Skin Rose Toning Essence - so good I’m almost done with it. Rose water infused with anti-oxidants and niacinamide to clear up your complexion. Great for that layered skin method for extra moisture so you can use less products in your routine. Petal Skin Rose Clay Mask - features rose water with rose clay to get rid of impurities as well as glycolic acid to quicken dead skin turnover. Out of all the masks I’ve used this burns the sides of my nose the most but I actually like it, that way I know that it actually works!
Tatcha Ritual 🧖🏻♀️✨
If you’ve ever been interested in Japanese beauty, Tatcha is a luxury brand you definitely need to check out. In December, my skin was at an all time low. I have very dry skin, so living in southern california and working as a lifeguard doesn’t help. I had an uneven tone, patchy and flaky skin, cystic breakouts, and dark circles. Within a week of using Tatcha my face changed for the better! My face has never been more smooth and hydrated, my wrinkles went away significantly and my tone is finally starting to even out! I found that my previous face wash was over stripping my skin and my moisturizer just wasn’t up to par for my skin. I genuinely love Tatcha and I’m so happy I splurged. TATCHA - Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser The Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil is a light weight oil that turns into a milky water once washed off. It’s extremely gentle on the skin and does a great job at getting off all the leftover makeup. I’ve never been a huge fan of cleansing oils but this one really stands above the rest. There’s no leftover residue, just a clean face TATCHA - The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder This facial polish has lasted me so long, I’ve had it since January 2020 and I still have a little less than half a container left. The Rice Polish is a powder that turns into a soft foamy exfoliant. you only need a dime size of it to polish your entire face and neck. It leaves your skin so soft without being too harsh on it. the best thing about it is that Tacha has multiple versions of the rice polish to fit your specific skin type! TATCHA - The Essence Plumping Skin Softener The Essence was something I hesitated buying for a while, only because of its steep price point ($95) I ended up purchasing it in Tatcha’s Dry Skin Ritual set, which has both of my favorite cleansers, The Dewy Skin Cream, and The Essence. I was so excited to try it, and i wasn’t disappointed. My skin felt so... plump! The hydration was definitely noticed and my skin is so soft! The only reason i knocked off the star was because of the price and as amazing as i think it is, I know that a couple face masks and a few serums could easily achieve the same amount of softness. The Essence also claims to help amplify the properties of other skincare items by helping the skin draw it in deeper, I don’t think it’s noticeable at first but after a while of continued use I am starting to see a difference with my other items! TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream Hands down my favorite moisturizer for my dry skin. I don’t know how else to say it! It’s a creamy, thick, moisturizer that leaves me feeling good even when I wake up, with other moisturizers i find myself reapplying throughout the day and especially when I wake up. With The Dewy Skin Cream, I don’t have to. I do admit i have to use more than the recommended pea sized amount, but it still feels amazing
TATCHA-Pure One Step Camellia Oil Cleanser
Out with the old, in with the New
Hey guys, so I know I posted my old skin care routine when I first started and I initially loved how it made my skin feel, but when I kept continuing using the products, I noticed they were not really giving me the results I wanted so I began to do some more research and I found the Caudalie products. I just started using them on May 27th. Caudalie is known for its clean and natural ingredients and I have very sensitive skin so I decided to give it a try. My main skin concerns is dark spots, uneven skin tone, and a few acne here and there. When I first started the routine, my skin began PURGING! I started getting a few more bumps than what I usually get on my face and I began to panic, but I decided to keep using the products, switched up my routine, and got rid of some of the old products I was using in my routine. Now my skin is starting to adjust which I am happy about. The bumps are going away and my dark spots are actually starting to fade away. It’s really true when they say some people’s skin do better when you use a more simple routine and I think that what my skin needed :). I will share my skin care routine in my next post.
CAUDALIE-Vinoperfect Brightening Glycolic Overnight Cream
Boujiee skincare nights✨
Well this was recorded before I gave my final verdict on May Lindstrom’s Blue Cocoon, so at this time it was still on my trial period; I have a full dedicated review to it, if you want more info please read it🙏🏼😌 Let’s start reviewing: ARCONA - Night Worker I just wish it was a true serum. Other than that it smells nice, like peaches or apricot; it’s mostly clean and has really good sourced ingredients; made in the USA; it’s a smaller company and they produce products freshly. The consistency is like a cream so if you have dry skin/normal or combo/dry, this will work greatly for you as it doesn’t irritate at all. Also the Vitamin C is stable as the container is completely opaque and has a pump which is also great. Definitely see some brightening action and smoothing of the fine lines in my forehead. SkinMedica - Retinol Complex 1.0 It is really gentle for being a 1%, I assume it’s due to it being encapsulated retinol, which means it gets released slowly and not all at once. Definitely no irritation even when I use my DE glycolic serum/gel and followed it with this. I just wished, again, that the consistency was more thin. Other than that great formula and packaging keeps everything stable as well. facetheory - PoreBright Serum N10 I feel like it has definitely help with my acne, as I started breaking out due to hormonal imbalances and this helped greatly. I do however like the Good molecules Niacinamide as it’s cheaper and has zero stickiness to it and absorbs quicker. I am mixing this with my Chanel Le Blanc lotion and that helps this product sink in way faster as well as to not have that sticky feeling. facetheory - Regena C20 Serum I have to further keep using it, but right now it has given me zero irritation, has great ingredients and other brighteners besides vit C and sinks right in. may lindstrom skin - The Blue Cocoon Please read my review on this. BURT’S BEES - Rosewater Toner Love it, great for texture! Wish it had less alcohol. Chanel Le Blanc Lotion ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ As usual, 5 stars, I have reviewed it multiple times and just can’t get over what a great product it is. Aesop - Gentle Facial Cleansing Milk It’s okay. Nothing exorbitant. I would say it’s good if you have really dry skin or for the winter months. Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Smoothing Gel Exfoliator 150ml Smells great, leaves my skin soft as a baby’s behind, really small exfoliating beads, none irritating, good price, lasts a long time and doubles as cleanser after taking your makeup off, of course. GLOW RECIPE - Avocado Melt Retinol Sleeping Face Mask For now I give it 4 stars as I need to use it for a longer period of time. Good thing’s about it: doesn’t irritate or make my eyes water, hydrates and smoothens. Wish it wasn’t in a jar.
