Toner for Oily/Sensitive Skin
This pixi - Glow Tonic is a super concentrated facial toner that works by getting deep into the pores and removing excess oil and impurities. It works by exfoliating and purifying the skin with the aid of Glycolic Acid and energizes skin with Ginseng! Not only that but it also has Aloe Vera to soothe and hydrate! This toner targets people with sensitive, oily, dry, combination, mature, and normal skin. It’s a pink/orange liquid toner that is unscented making it perfect for everyday usage. This is my second bottle and I think it’s pretty much one of the best toners you can purchase at a drug store! I discovered Pixi years ago but there toner has been in my collection for the last few months. As a daily makeup user, it’s incredibly important that I clean my face every day before bed. A toner is a must for my skincare routine! I love that it does not have a scent because I have used alcohol based toners in the past that make usage almost unbearable. I feel like it cleans and purifies my skin extremely well and will recommend this item to friends and family. The 3.4 fl oz retails for $15.00 and the 8.45 fl oz goes for $29.00! I purchase mine from Target ( which have good sales from time to time) and you can also get it directly from their site. I apply this toner onto a cotton pad and then use the pad on my face, which makes the 3.4 oz bottle last a good amount of time. If you have oily/sensitive skin, then this is the toner for you!
My fave fave faveeee face mask
Gleamin' - Vitamin C Clay Mask Rated five stars because this is my holy grail face mask in the video you will see the consistency of the mask in the jar it comes in also comes with little brush to apply the mask to your face! End of the video will show when the mask is dried on the face do not keep on longer than 10 minutes or irritation/ dryness could occur. This lightens my dark marks from post acne scarring I've had . I have used this mask for about 4 or 5 months and in the second month I was hooked and can't live without this mask. It makes your face feel tight as it sucks the excess oils and tightens those enlarged pores. I highly recommend this mask if your face needs a bit of a brighter look and you suffer from post acne marks/ hyperpigmentation. I suggest you wash your face after use because can leave behind a yellow residue . BUY THIS YOU WONT REGRET ! 10/10 Gleamin' - Vitamin C Clay Mask

Let’s talk face masks for acne
The Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask is marketed as a pore-refining mask with super-powered Australian botanicals. It's meant to be a solution for pores, blemishes & acne, and oiliness. The texture here is similar to your usual clay mask, but what i love about this particular one is how smooth it is and non-drying it is on the skin. Definitely one of my favorite clay mask textures for sure. I decided to try this mask around a month ago since I've recently struggled with acne here and there. I had heard this mask in particular was great for clearing up skin blemishes and reducing acne flair-ups. Plus the before and after photo on their websites are incredible! In terms of my experience, I REALLY like this mask and I feel it is the best mask I've tried that helps with blemishes and preventing acne. It's really one of the few face masks that truly does what it says it does. As mentioned, I also really love how this mask doesn't dry out my already dry skin! Overall, if i put this on when i feel a breakout coming on, it's definitely helps my blemishes fade quickly and redness always goes down fast. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone! Like i said, it does what it says it does and is one of the few products I own that truly helps me when I'm battling a breakout. It sells for $50 which I'd say is worth it since it's an effective product with great ingredients. I would rate this product 5/5. SAND&SKY - Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask

Au Revoir Blackheads. You’re not welcome here!
Let’s talk about one my biggest love affairs with skincare, The Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay mask. Safe to say....a cult favorite. It is an all natural powder clay, made of 100% calcium bentonite; Which is a type of dry, absorbent clay that forms from old volcanic ash. Bentonite clay has been found to remove bodily toxins upon application by absorbing them. Its a vacuum cleaner for things like dirt and oil and hardens on your skin upon a few mins of application. It’s marketed as the worlds most powerful facial with the purpose of deep cleaning the dirtiest of pores and it does not fall short of that. This product has been in my skincare cabinet for a little over 3 years & I wish I had discovered it sooner. When a friend posted it on her IG and swore by it, I ran after work to get it from the Vitamin Shoppe but soon found out I wasn’t the only girl in Manhattan with hopes of flawless skin. Apparently this was when this product had blown up and was sold out everywhere, I ended up finding it at a beauty supply store in Harlem after hours of searching everywhere. Thankfully now, you can find this $9 mask just about anywhere in the city (Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Rite Aid, Vitamin Stores, local grocery stores, amazon, etc) Being the girl that’s always had troublesome skin this mask promised to help get rid of any impurities on my face, Blackheads and Acne being top of my list. You mix the powder with either water or apple cider vinegar 1:1 & get this cream like consistency which you then apply to the face and leave on for 10 minutes. You start feeling your face tingle & tighten w/in a few mins & before u know it u need a straw to take a sip of water. It’s unlike any mask I’ve ever tried. After washing your face is a bit red but followed with moisturizer and it’s like a new face. Any active pimples/redness diminish & blackheads are gone. I use this once a week subject to how much trouble my face is giving me and I have seen this mask change my skin. If you haven’t tried this, what are you waiting for?! 5/5
AZTEC SECRET-Indian Healing Clay
Affordable Night Routine for Oily Skin
Here is my night routine! It is pretty similar to my morning routine(sorry about the cluster of products in the picture i tried my best to tag all the products). This a pretty affordable night routine for someone who used to deal with a lot of hormonal acne. ￼￼Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser Just like my morning routine, I use the Cetaphil cleanser. Sometimes i will use a bit more at night depending on if i wear makeup or not. Also i forgot to take a picture but to take off my makeup I use the GARNIER - SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Makeup Remover on a cotton pad. I try to stay away from makeup wipes and micellar water is super gentle! ￼￼The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% Again, just like my morning routine I use 2 drops of this after cleansing. I seriously recommend this product it’s cheap and very effective! Also make sure not to touch the dropper to your face! ￼￼The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution So I am sure most people have heard of this amazing product. This is my 5th week using it and I can definitely see a difference in my skin! I use it once a week every Friday night. I skip the niacinamide because apparently it’s not good to mix these 2 in the same night/morning. I’m not sure if that’s backed up but just in case I skip this step every Friday night. I put 2 drops onto my fingers and gently spread it across my face. I make sure to avoid the eye area. Leave it on for 10 minutes and no longer. My scars have started to disappear and my skin feels incredible afterwards. I do also use a prescribed acne medication after this step just like my morning routine. I obviously can’t tag it but if you are struggling with acne and are able to, consider seeing a dermatologist! ￼￼CeraVe - PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion This is by far my all-time favorite moisturizer! I use the ultra-lightweight one that’s oil-free. It doesn’t feel super heavy but makes me skin feel very hydrated and soft. I have never used any other night moisturizer because I know I will always come back to this one. ￼￼ESTĒE LAUDER - DayWear Eye Cooling Anti-Oxidant Moisture GelCreme I then do eye cream. I’m not super picky when it comes to eye creams as long as they are not heavy. This product is kinda random when I got it but it definitely makes my eyes feel hydrated which is all I care about. ￼￼Briogeo - B. Well Organic + Cold-Pressed 100% Castor Oil I cant say enough good things about this product. I started using it about a year ago on my eyelashes and eyebrows. I use a clean spoolie and my eyelashes have grown so long. I naturally have thick eyebrows but i will kinda run the excess on them. I still have my 1st bottle and I am surprised I haven’t run out yet since I use this every night. Any castor oil works but this one comes in a bottle!
The Ordinary-AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
❌Stop hair loss for medium density hair!!!
I have thick hair, but not as thick as it was when I was a teenager. Since I have serious hair loss due to the habit of staying up late, whenever my fingers ran through my hair, effortlessly the strands I touched were falling out. Now I only have medium density hair, I am not really satisfied with it. I am afraid that my hair will become thinner and thinner, which is terrible. So I just hope to grow more hair , trying to make up the problem of losing hair. I tend to throw a lot of products on my hair to see what works . What I use now isThe Ordinary - Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density.This concentrated formula is designed to support hair health so that it looks thicker, denser, fuller and healthier. What attract me is that this is for oily hair, which is suitable for my scalp. In addition, its ingredients includes many stimulants for hair growth and strengthening, including Biotinoyl Tripeptide-1, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-3 and so on. The total concentration of these in the formula by weight is 21.15%. The formula is like pure water and is highly liquid, not greasy at all. Most hair products leave your hair feeling icky, sticky, oily, or dry. This does not, you could wear it day or night. After applying it, you also find that it add some volume to your hair. The method of application is simple and convenient. No need to wash hair, but you should ensure you scalp is clean. Apply a few drops on your scalp directly and then massage it with your fingers for a while. For me, this serum truly helps restore most of my hair lost, baby hairs can be seen in the forehead after several weeks. The less hair shedding make me pleasant. Do you like or hate it? Tell me your feeling!
