Hi Gems! We are now in the full swing of October so it’s time to review what I emptied in September! DevaCurl - One Condition Decadence for Super Curly Hair This conditioner was good for my damaged curls! It provided enough hydration, but I didn’t love how it felt going into my hair. I loved the subtle scent of and the bright packaging! Although this conditioner is great, it is pricy especially when I use so much of it! I have since moved on to trying another curly girl conditioner that I will review soon! JERGENS - Natural Glow Instant Sun Mousse This has been my go to drugstore self tanner for a while now! I never have any issues with it streaking when combined with my tanning mitt and it fades well. The smell is pretty bad and it can be very sticky, so I only leave it on for around 5-6 hours and use baby powder to combat stickiness! The color is great and not too orange! ogx - Renewing Argan Oil Of Morocco Weightless Healing Dry Oil I love this hair oil! It smells amazing AND tackles my frizzy curls like a champ! It is truly weightless and never leaves my hair feeling oily or weighed down! If you have trouble with frizz or just want your hair to look healthy this is definitely for you! I will be repurchasing! Fruit of the Earth - Aloe Vera 100% Gel Every girl needs a trust worthy aloe vera gel in her beauty line up and this is a fantastic one! This gel doesn’t have any added color which is why I like it! I use this on my face and my hair! For my face, it helps to hydrate and heal imperfections. I use it in my hair to help hydrate and lock my curl pattern making it a staple in my hair care routine! Neutrogena - Hydro Boost Hydrating Cleansing Gel I have been using this cleanser for months and it has never failed me! It foams wonderfully and has a minimal fragrance! It is reasonably priced and never makes my skin feel striped, which is always a concern with cleansing. The Hydro Boost line is one of my favorites but I am a huge fan of trying new things though, so I am testing out a different cleanser this month! DRUNK ELEPHANT - T.L.C. Framboos Glycolic Resurfacing Night Serum I got this in a trial size to test it out because they’re products are so expensive! The packaging is adorable, but it’s what’s inside that counts! I honestly didn’t see a huge difference in my complexion and overall it didn’t wow me. LOVE beauty AND planet - Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Radical Refresher Body Wash This body wash smells HEAVENLY and the packaging is adorable! However, it doesn’t leave me feeling as hydrated as I should or as other washes have! TRADER JOE'S - Nourish Hyaluronic Moisture Boost Serum This serum was great and inexpensive! It always leaves my face feeling super hydrated and supple! It lasted me a long time which made my really happy!

THAYERS Toner Review
[PRODUCT REVIEW] Toner THAYERS - Rose Petal Facial Mist Rose Petal What You Need to Know: Cruelty free Gluten free Vegan Clean skincare Contains natural fragrance Witch hazel acts as an astringent and it can be potentially irritating My Personal Experience: A decent toner! Smells like just like roses. The fragrance isn’t irritating to me but I can’t say for people with more sensitive skin. I really like that it’s alcohol free and provides antioxidants. The simple ingredients (no actives) make it easy to use along with my serums and creams. I use it right after my face wash just to add some extra moisture. I don’t put it on cotton rounds or anything, just on my palm and press/pat onto my face. Are cotton rounds and cotton balls a “scam”? I don’t know but if you use a cotton round, you’ll use more product lol. And for me those things, however soft, always feel a bit irritating like a physical exfoliation on my face. One thing I don’t particularly like is that even though this toner is “recommended for oily skin” it’s not as fresh and light as I’d like it to be. Sometimes if I accidentally use too much it can feel soapy for a second. Also this toner doesn’t do any wonders to my skin as THAYERS marketing/advertisement claims. Does it “cleanse pores” or “bring out a glow”? I really don’t know. And I don’t expect a toner to do that honestly. Final Tips: Toners ARE NOT a necessary step in our skincare routine. If the toner doesn’t have active ingredients in itit more or less just adds moisture to your skin. Then it’s up to your personal preference whether to add a toner in your routine or not. ⭐️ The reason for that is because we have (and should have) better cleansers now that don’t throw off our skin’s PH level. Therefore no need to “rebalance” it. 👌 Toners are not cleansers! NOT cleansers! If you put your toner on a cotton round and swipe across your face and see makeup residue it’s because you didn’t cleanse your face thoroughly enough not because the toner is working!👀
