Light as air moisturizer!
This is my new holy grail moisturizer! 😍 actually this brand has now become one of my favorite skincare brands! They heavily considered people with sensitive skin and this moisturizer is no exception 🙌🏽 My skin type is very sensitive, combination, and acne prone. I need a moisturizer that is moisturizing, not to watery and not too rich (full of essential oils and fragrance). If you have a suspicion that your skincare may be breaking you out, then I would check for those things in your skincare. This moisturizer is the best of both worlds: no essential oils, no fragrance, rich but not too rich. It’s everything I wanted in a moisturizer. Also, the packaging is pretty big! First aid beauty’s price range is up there ($25+) but they give you a lot of product, and you can tell they a lot of work into making their products sensitive skin friendly! After using the moisturizer for a month, I’ve been keeping my acne under control! Sometimes I even put the moisturizer on my hands because it just feels therapeutic.

Why is your skincare pilling up?
Nothing is worse than finishing off your skincare routine to find that something in your routine is balling up on your face. This can be such a pain in the morning because you basically have to start over before you can even start applying make up. There are a few reasons why this may be happening. 1.) Ingredients aren’t meshing well together This has been the case for me lately with the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Oil-Control Moisturizer and Supergoop! - 100% Mineral Smooth & Poreless Matte Screen SPF 40 . Then first one is water based while the second one is silicone based. When I apply the sunscreen on top of the moisturizer it pills up immediately because they don’t mix correctly and separate. Despite loving both products I’ve found they don’t work well together so I no longer use them together. 2.) You’re applying products in the wrong order This has a similar point as point one. Water and oil don’t mix. If you’re putting oil based skincare on before or sandwiching it with water based skincare their is a /potential for pilling. Generally you want to use your water based serums first and then use any oil based skincare on top to create a barrier to seal in any actives. 3.) You’re applying too much product I’m definitely one to want to throw everything on my face in way more quantities than I should but now is definitely the time to take a step back. It’s very tempting but less is more. Your skin can only absorb so much product. If you’re overloading it on there is potential for unabsorbed product to pill. These are all potential reasons why skincare can be pilling up. It’s a total pain to deal with but hopefully realizing why it might be doing this is the first step to correcting it. 🖤
Get your greens!!!
Starting this beautiful Monday off with all my favorite greens. A green detox juice from my local juicery, Farmacy’s Daily Greens moisturizer, and YTTP’s superfood cleanser. I just started using FARMACY - Daily Greens Oil-Free Gel Moisturizer with Moringa and Papaya as it was one of the minis in the current Sephora favorites kit (you get to try 5 things for $10 a steal!). I have combination and acne prone skin so I only use heavy creams at night, and switch to gel moisturizers in the morning. I wanted to try a new gel moisturizer and had seen so many people talking about this one. It is amazing! The perfect texture and my skin drinks it up in the morning. The smell was a little different from what I expected, but overall I really like it. Many people said this is perfect for summer, which I do agree with, but I will likely use it year round. I already have a post about YTTP superfood cleanser but just want to say again how much I love it. Antioxidants for the win!

Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin✨
FAB Ultra Repair Cream: Product Claims: Head-to-toe moisturizer that provides instant relief and long-term hydration for dry, distressed skin, even eczema. The beautiful, whipped texture is instantly absorbed with no greasy after-feel. Safe for sensitive skin, the cream can be used by all members of the family, even children and babies. Product Target Concerns: Dry/Flakey skin Texture/Consistency: like a cloud, so fluffy, and absorbs perfectly into the skin. My thoughts on the product: So I was really nervous at first trying this moisturizer, because normally when testing moisturizers, a lot will break me out. This one by far, is just perfect. No scent, beautiful texture, and really has been a saving grace for me in restoring my moisture barrier!! Recommend to Others: 100% yes. This in my opinion, would be great for anyone, especially for the amount that you get!! Price: $32FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration
FIRST AID BEAUTY-Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration
This moisturizer has helped my skin- which needs moisturizer but only a light amount- so much. At first I was using too little so my skin was dry, then too much so my acne became more prominent, then I found the perfect amount and it keeps my skin fresh and moisturized! The consistency is a little jelly like and it cools down my skin so much. 4/5 (just because you have to toy around with the amount you use for a little)

Yummy Cherry Jelly Gel 💖
This moisturizer caught me off guard when I first got it! I wasn’t expecting it to be completely see-through! It smells delicious, and didn’t cause any issues like acne or blemishes. As a moisturizer is super hydrating, almost to the point of being flat out wet on the skin 😅 This feeling may not be for everybody, but I thoroughly enjoy it because it makes me feel like I just did a sheet mask 😍 it’s quite slippery, so a little goes a long way! innisfree - Jeju Cherry Blossom Dewy Glow Jelly Cream

Milk Makeup Vegan Milk Moisturizer
The Milk MAKEUP - Vegan Milk Moisturizer is a SAVIOR for dry skin. I am really happy with how how well this is working for me. This moisturizer is vegan (clearly by the name) and fragrance free which is something I love. It’s meant to hydrate and nourish the skin. No actives in this, just a good moisturizing concoction. I will say, I was nervous it was going to cause serious breakouts when I first opened it because SHE THICC. This cream is sort of like a body butter in consistency. But after using it for weeks, no noticeable breakouts other than my usual stuff. In terms of what skin type, I would definitely say it’s geared toward super dry skin. It is extremely moisturizing and left my skin feeling soft after using it but not greasy at all. I don’t know if someone with oily skin would like how heavy this feels so if you are oily, I would say try a sample first. I also am a little nervous about the consistency going into summer. I am hoping it doesn’t melt off my face, but we shall see. For now, it leaves my skin feeling absolutely silky and amazing. I can use it both morning and night easily. It works well when mixing an oil into it as well. The packaging is cute too, but it doesn’t come with a scoop, so make sure you have your own if you plan on purchasing. Overall, this worked really well for me and I would recommend it to anyone with super dry skin looking to add some moisture back
