Need a touch of the Sea?
VitaminSea.beauty is here to provide just that! This company takes all the best nutrients of the sea and bundles it in a very clean and refreshing skin care line. The Blue Sea Kale and Grapefruit face mask is extraordinary deep pore exfoliating mask. Sea Kale has antioxidants to cleanse your skin of harmful molecules. Adding grapefruit to the mask helps with Wrinkles, discoloration, and dullness giving the skin an illuminated glow. Using the mask is very simple, apply a think layer to the skin and leave for 10 mins. After just wash with warm water and it’s also perfectly safe to wash down the drain. Recommend? Yes. It’s a very affordable brand that can be found at Ulta. With all the benefits of the sea included, it’s hard to go wrong. Downside? Those with sensitive skin should take caution; acidic fruits, such as the grapefruit can be an irritant for some sensitive skin. As a sensitive skin person myself I don’t have a problem but it may be different for others. I mainly suggest not to use the mask after a day out in the sun if you may have a sunburn on your face. What are your thoughts on the Blue Sea Kale and Grapefruit face mask?? If there is anything you’d like a review of just send me a message! Thanks Loves!

Guys, Let’s Talk Sunscreen
Neutrogena. Who doesn’t have a product by the brand? It’s your easy go to in the drug store. I needed to add a sunscreen to my morning routine and I’ve had this for a while. Now using it almost everyday, I’m starting to think about if there may be a better product for me out there. I bought this because it didn’t have any chemicals I’m allergic to in it like other moisturizers and because I trust the brand. Downside?? I enjoy this because it’s a moisturizer with SPF 50, it gives you a glowing look with the sleek formula however it doesn’t sink into the skin right away. It also kinda rubs off during the day or if you rub it into the skin to much. You know, the weird little pieces of dried lotion, like if you used a chemical exfoliating mask. Does anyone have any recommendations for a everyday sunscreen? Age: 22 Skin type: combination. Concerns: allergies. So a more natural brand or a brand that doesn’t use a lot of ingredients.

Is It Worth The Money?
Sunday Riley is the brand I never quite know where I stand with. I have tried some products I’ve loved and others I returned very quickly. The UFO clarifying oil is one I just can not figure out. It’s an oil more than a serum so I always put it last in the nightly routine. For the first couple of days using it it helps with the major acne I can’t get rid of. But after a week or so of using it. I get small little bumps that take months to get my skin right again. I couldn’t bring myself to return it when I bought it cause it did help. However the longer I use it the more it seems to upset my skin. Currently I still have it because I paid a hella lot of money for this small bottle. And I’m using it to shave with (facial Derma). I have had the bottle for a very long time now. And I am almost out of it. Would I buy this product again. No way! But I wouldn’t not buy from Sunday Riley again, it’s about finding what works and this did not for me. If anyone has any advice on its use or if I’m doing something wrong please leave a comment. Thanks!

Overnight Hydro boost
Elf is the on the budget BFF. I was in the need of a night cream and randomly picked this one up. Best decision ever! This lightweight formula is not only super clean from harsh chemicals but also provides that huge gulp of water your skin needs every night to help it heal. This product is super smooth and a little goes a long way. I have almost run out and I’ve had the jar for months! And use it every night! It’s lightweight enough to use as a day cream and has very little smell if any at all. One of my favorites and will probably buy a new jar soon.

HaruHaru Cream Honey Green Brilliant Extract of Fermented Green Tea with Honey Initial impression Because I didn’t have the time use the product for atleast one week as I received it 3 wks late (post office issue) I thought I’d share my impression when I incorporated it on my pm and am routine. Packaging: Uhm, hello, do I really need to elaborate how cute the packaging is! Im all for black and white and will probably use as storage or plant pot when it’s empty!Chemical, Paraben & Cruelty Free! Scent: I can’t tell as it’s the first time I encounter such scent. My guess is: Honey + Lemon but muskier. A bit strong and it does not really go away unless you put a sunscreen or sleeping mask on top of it. It’s a bit off for me. Texture: very light weight cream and a little goes a long way. Application: came with a transparent spatula but I’m not sure if you can attach it to the bottle? I’ve been trying to find a way to keep them together so I taped it on top of the lid. Absorption: takes a minute or two til your skin fully absorbs it. Upon application, it has a sticky finish but a minute after, it leaves skin velvety & smooth. AM: use a little amount (pea size) and spread all over the face before sunscreen PM: (Recommended) Apply a desirable amount and spread all over the face. Gently press or tap for fully absorption Final thoughts: Wow, this didn’t sting at all. I usually get itchy when i use fermented product for the first time but this one, left me super soft, repaired my skin overnight and kept me moisturised and not oily. Once Im halfway with it, I’ll see if it helps with my blemishes.

I just can’t believe that this Pyunkang Yul set is here with me now! I am actually looking forward to try more products from this brand after using and finishing their Essence Toner. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner has helped me throughout my bad episode last year when I had dry, sensitive, and flaky skin. I am so amazed by how gentle and hydrating it was for my skin. The texture is medium light and hydrating. It soothes my redness and calm my skin. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I just try out the Moisture Serum, as you can see in the picture, the texture is milky white and quite thick but it doesn’t feel heavy at all on my skin. It doesn’t has any scent. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Moisture Cream is thick and very hydrating. It takes a little bit time to absorb, but then my skin feel so smooth and soft. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you guys tried any of the Pyunkang Yul products? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💙Pyunkang Yul Essence Toner: moisture essence toner which is full of nourishment and rich hydrated. 💙Pyunkang Yul Moisture Serum: the moisture serum fully moisturize your skin and helps you nourish softer, smoother and silkier skin texture. 💙Pyunkang Yul Moisture Cream: a gentle yet effective cream that supplies an abundance of moisture to even the most sensitive and young skin. ⠀
Keep me hydrated! Bliss Drench and quench
Thoughts: This is honestly one of my favorite moisturizers and I had been using this since the summer of this year. I had seen it on the shelf one day while browsing through target and decided I wanted a hydrating moisturizer that won't leave me greasy, break me out, or have to apply more so soon. This had claimed it would do 2 out of the 3 so I decided to try it out. I can say the first day I applied this it was so soothing and my skin had instantly looked more refreshed and alive in 30 seconds. I was very oily in the summer time and this helped to balance that out and kept my skin nourished for hours, I didn't look or feel greasy! It truly does what it says and with it being so gentle it didn't break me out. It's an amazing moisturizer and definitely became a staple so quickly. Claims: for any skin type (including sensitive) giving all day moisture improve skin's moisture barrier in 4 weeks Targets: dullness, rapairing skin barrier and balancing out the skin Texture: Lightweight cream that turns into a water consistency and is very absorbent (Second pic is the texture shot) Some ingredients: Purified micro algae to improve skin hydrating and reduce water loss Vitamin c to brighten and firm skin Milk thistle and passion fruit seed oils to help restore and soothe skin while protecting it from free radicals German chamomile a gentle flower known to calm the skin Price: $20 A great not a break the bank price for all the hydration it gives Recommendation: Yes I recommend this because it really does help lock in moisture and it feels incredible and is so gentle Cruelty free and Vegan 🐇 bliss - Drench & Quench Moisturizer

Don’t Be Prickly.....
This Cactus Moisturizer by Boscia is like a glass of water for your desert style skin. The texture is such a smooth,rich, and thick moisturizer that doesn’t feel tacky or sticky on the skin. It’s weightless on the skin and quickly dries for a nice and subtle look. This moisturizer is said to help with dry patchy skin and I definitely think it delivers!!! It’s definitely a product that you do not need much to massage throughout your entire face. I usually dab a little bit into my fingers and then spread across my face. Definitely let it completely dry before applying any other products. I would highly recommend this to someone with dry to combination style skin. It might be a bit too hydrating for oily skin. I have acne prone skin and this product worked very well with my unruly skin without causing any new breakouts!! boscia - Cactus Water Moisturizer
