The Skin House - Marine Active Serum
PR| If you are looking for a hydrating and moisturizing serum, this is a good one to try! This serum is jam packed with so many humectants (I counted 10!)! The product is also composed of a lot of soothing and emollient ingredients but watch out, there are a few ingredients that may cause irritation such as alcohol, castor oil, and fragrance. The alcohol did not have any drying effects on my skin whatsoever since it was being overcompensated by all the humectants. The scent is quite strong but it does not linger once the product gets absorbed by your skin. The texture looks and feels slightly gel-like but so easily spreadable. I only need 1.5-2 pumps to cover my face and neck. The serum layers well with all my other skincare steps. I’ve been reaching for this serum mainly at night when my face is craving hydration after wearing a mask for most of the day at work.

ADVANCED CLINICALS - Hyaluronic Serum, Instant Skin Hydrator I asked my husband to buy me moisturizer during this quarantine. I love to try new things. He purchased this serum for me and I’m loving it! I feel like it has definitely kept my skin hydrated and has reduced the fine lines around my eyes. I will definitely repurchase this!

I tried the cheapest Vit C Serum: was it worth?!
I tried the cheapest Vit C Serum: was it worth?!
HONEST FEMME FINDS: All I gotta say is wow, never before have I seen a 4oz bottle of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) serum formulated with Ferulic acid and vitamin E (both stabilizers of Vit C) for only $15. I bought this off of Amazon prime so I actually got a discount and ended up with this product for only $12. That is actually insane because the original formulation by skinceuticals goes for $166 for only 1oz. Patent concerns aside, that is 55x more than what I just paid for. Of course, cheap isn’t always better. This serum by Pura D’or does not go without many many flaws. Here are some of my thoughts: pura d'or - 20% Vitamin C Serum Quantity: this product claims to be shelf stable for 12 months which is kind of suspicious to me as Vit C in its true form is supposed to oxidize easily but if they say so... Impressions and Usage: even before I opened the bottle, I immediately noticed the smell. An herbal floral smell that confused me because there were no obvious fragrances on the ingredient list. Upon application, a sharp and funky scent lingers. I dunno if I want to smell like a grandma quite yet. Then I saw that the fourth ingredient was witch hazel, which may be the culprit. I’ve never used witch hazel before, as I avoid drying products in my skincare. Let’s just say that the witch hazel definitely does its job. Immediately upon application, my skin felt tighter and later in the day, it felt super dry regardless of the usual moisturizers I layered on. The scent and witch hazel are big NOs for me but if you have oily skin, maybe give this a try? Otherwise I’d say it’s a hard pass. The consistency is also extremely watery which is not what I’d expect from a normal serum. I’d say it’s more of an astringent toner to pair with an additional serum at best. Otherwise, the ingredient list looks great, with aloe leaf extract, white jelly mushroom extract, glycerine and HA high on the list. The Verdict: Even though I questioned whether I’d be able to finish all this serum in a short amount of time, that’s not the real problem here. $12 for 4oz of Vit C + Ferulic Acid is indeed a steal; however, at the end of the day, it’s all about how the product sits on my face. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attest to its effectiveness because I simply can’t stand to be near this serum. Cheers to the ongoing search for a good L-ascorbic acid 🥂

It wasn’t until the last year that I began adding an essence into my skincare routine. Although lightweight like a toner, essences are much more & add a deep layer of hydration, when following toning. Essences contain high levels of antioxidants, nourishment, & active ingredients! The Blue Butterfly is one of my go-to products this season. It is filled with organic butterfly pea flowers that replenishes the skin through nourishing flavonoids. It also contains hydrating aloe vera & hyaluronic acid & skin restoring ingredients such as organic jasmine & lavender! The Tahnyc line pronounced tonic, carries a beautiful array of bespoke products. It was co-created by Irene Parsky, who developed a chronic allergy to the parabens that were shockingly & continuously included in skincare. The focus of the line is ‘conscious powerful clean beauty’! On their website it says, “20% of the general US population is allergic and/or is sensitive to ingredients in cosmetics. That’s 64.8 million people & 64.8 million reasons we’re here. Most people tend to think 'oh I just broke out, just feel a bit itchy, or have some red bumps that will go away, soon, I hope' when really their skin is reacting.” #cheriecreator

Bought this from multiple recommendations from skincare youtubers + it was nicely priced 😋 (less than $20) I apply directly after washing my face with cleanser 🧼 and it adds a nice boost of hydration 💧for my desert-dry 🌵 skin 🤪 Doesn’t seem to have any benefits other than hydration 😔 but it works well under a moisturizer at night 🌝 and sunscreen in the morning 🌞 Feels good for any skin type 💯 as it’s nicely hydrating 💦 but also super light 🦋 Overall a no frills 💥 very chill 🌥 serum at a great price 😃

I am so excited to share this gorgeous texture with you today. @byroe reached out for me to be a product tester on the panel for their tomato serum. First impression: I was so excited when I opened the box to find this beautiful, amber liquid. The packaging is stunning and it has a very unique dropper. It is super gentle-no stinging or redness at all. I can’t wait to see what this does for my skin. #byroetester BYROE - Tomato Serum
