👍🏽 I got this right before my lips started peeling, and this saved my lips. It’s very moisturizing and conditioning. It contains lanolin, which I believe is the ingredient that really help my flaking lips. The Raw Sugar lip balm adds a nice touch because of the smell. I recently tried them together, but the lip treatment works great on its own☺️ 👎🏽 The only thing I don’t like about this product is how hard it is to apply. It’s really hard to spread at first, you really have work your fingers in there. It also doesn’t smell very nice, but it’s subtle.
PAULA'S CHOICE-PAULA"S CHOICE Lip & Body Treatment Balm
👍🏽 This face and body moisturizer is the most gentle moisturizer I’ve found so far. It’s lightweight, non-irritating, and fragrance free. It’s main ingredient is glycerin, which is humectant, that means it draws in more moisture to your skin😁 👎🏽 It can feel a little bit on the watery side, especially when it’s hot, but it gets the job done. I’ve tried putting in the freezer for a little while, which thickens it up a little.

Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser I finally tried their cleanser and I’m not sure how I feel about it 🤔 It doesn’t foam, hence the name, it feels like massaging your skin with really thin lotion, which is not a bad thing but I think it would be better if it foamed a little bit. But my skin feels soft and clean after using it. Just not my cup of tea I guess. I’m trying to implement cleaner products into my AM/ PM routine and this product doesn’t WOW me. I was expecting so much especially how aesthetically pleasing their branding is. 👎🏽

Drunk Elephant Initiation
*I have used the two products as my night routine. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Cream After using this moisturizer a couple times, I’m a little underwhelmed. It’s lightweight and fragrance-free which I love, but it’s more gelly than creamy and doesn’t leave my skin as moisturized as one would expect from such a high end brand. 👎🏽 DRUNK ELEPHANT - Slaai Makeup-Melting Butter Cleanser This cleanser on the other hand is BOMB. It’s smoooth, like butter😂 It leaves my skin so soft and it rinses well. I just massage it onto my skin while it’s dry and rinse in the shower. I prefer using it with a scrub for the best exfoliating experience. It’s definitely on the thicker side and can clog pores if you use too often, but great from as an exfoliating aide👍🏽
DRUNK ELEPHANT-Protini Polypeptide Cream
👍🏽 Skin care is self care, and cleansing is the most important step, in my opinion. CeraVe makes very basic, but effective products. This cleanser is not luxurious by any means, but it’s gets the job done. My skin never feels dry after cleansing, and it cleans thoroughly. 👍🏽 I use the Alba scrub on my body, but I’ve used it on my face a couple of times and it doesn’t irritate. But I prefer to use it on my chest, knees, and elbows. 👎🏽 This scrub helps smooth out the skin, but doesn’t help with body acne in the long run😞
alba BOTANICA- Acne Dote, Face & Body Scrub Oil-Free
👍🏽 I like to keep my skin care routine as simple as I can. To protect my lips from dryness, I’m currently using these two products. Mario Badescu lip balm and Egyptian Magic all-purpose cream. I’m always switching it up, but these are goood. Routine: 1. Heat a cotton pad or small towel with hot water. 2. Gently rub your lips. 2. Apply lip balm 3. Apply all-purpose cream

Top Drugstore Moisturizers: Weleda ✨
Okay!!! This moisturizer is a game changer. For anyone that has used the Weleda Skin Food but may have thought it was too heavy, thick, or greasy...this product is 10/10. This is a lighter formula of the classic Skin Food and I prefer this one way more. I buy this at Target and I believe it is only $18. I use this at night or on no makeup days on my face and neck. It sinks in pretty quickly but leaves your skin glowing all day while still magically controlling oil. It has plant extracts, chamomile, and calendula to calm redness and heal up dry spots. 🌱 I also use this on my body if I have any sunburns or dryness. It has quite a thick consistency when it comes out of the bottle but thins out when you apply it. Skin Food Light works perfectly on my combination skin so I could see it working well for you if you have normal, dry or oily skin. If you have tried this let me know what you thought of it!!! 🌷✨🤍 WELEDA - Skin Food Light Nourishing Cream

Apply your serum onto DAMP SKIN and follow up with a moisturizer. Why? HA is a humectant so it will pull moisture from the surrounding environment into your skin. If there is no type of moisture then HA can actually start to dry out your skin and essentially becomes a waste of product! #Ex’s Tears - Hyaluronic Acid[products]#[FiveStars] Loving this serum! It’s lightweight and not as tacky/sticky compared to others. It absorbs in well to the skin and I am slowly starting to see great results with my fine lines on my forehead! #cheriepartner #cheriecreator

2 of The Ordinary products that are worth the hype
It was impossible for me to ignore the hype around The Ordinary products. I mean, when it comes to celebrities recommending luxury products on their social media, it doesn’t trigger anything in me as I tend to think it’s just advertising and nothing else. But when social media influencers from all over the world start recommending products that are like less than 10 euros, it is certainly worth a try! In my first order from The Ordinary, I’ve got Natural Moisturizing Factors +HA and Squalane Cleanser and I’m very pleased with them both! Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA The reason why I wanted to try this moisturizer in the first place is the no-nonsense title and label. I mean I just want a moisturizer, why name it overly complicated? Just call it by its name! This one is rich in amino acids, ceramides, hyaluronic acid and fatty acids and keeps the skin hydrated without leaving behind a greasy film. I noticed the results immediately. The skin felt better, properly hydrated, plumper. This is a product that didn’t promise the moon, only moisturizing and did a great job delivering just this. It costs about 5 euros (30 ml) and if you ask me, it is totally worth the hype. Squalane Cleanser I used to be fully committed to my micellar water cleansing routine, but since the Squalane cleanser was a part of the daily set I ordered, I wanted to try. The indication is to rub a small amount of product between the palms of your hands and then massage into the skin of the face and rinse with plenty of water. At first, the cleanser has like a moisturizer texture, but when you start rubbing, it gets warm and turns into an oily lotion. Application is easy and the cleanser does a good job in removing makeup. Since I can’t give up on my micellar water, I am using the Squalane cleanser only in the evenings, to get rid of makeup and the micellar water in the mornings. Squalane cleanser leaves my skin soft and clean, no drying or oily sensation. I’d definitely recommend it to friends!
Sunrise Skin Routine - AM Edition
Hello lovies! I am back with my most up to date morning skincare routine! Some background information is that I have oily combo skin and deal with occasional dry patches on my face. During the spring and summer season I don’t have the dry patches but once the weather changes, temperatures drop, and the air gets dry in the east coast - it’s dry patches around the corners of my lips and edges around my nose. Every morning when I wake up these are the three items is I use, I’ll start with order of use. I begin with the Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser to wash of my face and clear any residue built over night. I like that this product is not too strong nor does it carry a strong scent which makes it perfect for all skin types in my opinion. This cleanser includes five skin conditioners that is perfect for not over drying the face after wash. According to Glossier, it is “soothing, purifying, and nourishing.” I 100% agree with the statement. This item retails from $9.00-$18.00, depending on size. I am almost done with this bottle and plan on repurchasing. The second item I use is the Vaseline - Cocoa Butter Healing Jelly, Rich Moisturizing ! I apply this specifically to the dry patches of my face that I mentioned earlier. I have been using Vaseline on my face for over five years, I think it does an excellent job of providing hydration to the dry spots of the face. Ironically, I have some super oily spots on my face so it’s funny that I have to apply Vaseline to other areas. This item is a steal too - one small container costs only $1.79! During the winter season this baby here is a life saver and even during the warmer seasons I occasionally apply it in the morning too. The last item I use in my morning skincare routine is the FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Pink Grapefruit . This is the moisturizer I apply all over the face except for places I applied my Vaseline on. This baby provides the perfect amount of hydration for the oily, normal, and dry spots on my face! It’s not too overpowering and you feel your face just take in the hydration! I absolutely love that this item can be used for those dealing with intense dryness or distress skin. This works incredible on my skin and I have experienced zero breakouts from this routine. I have been using this specific routine for the last three months! The routine has always been the same it begins with some face wash, Vaseline, and then a moisturizer. I’ve been fortunate enough to win a few giveaway and thus discovered Glossier and First Aid Beauty. I think this combo works well for my skin type and believe it would work well for those with similar oily combo skin types. It doesn’t bring more attention to the oily spots and it hydrates the spots that need more love! Stay around for my PM routine - it’s coming up soon!
Vaseline-Cocoa Butter Healing Jelly, Rich Moisturizing
last empty for the week!
so very sad to have emptied this FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream Intense Hydration ! It’s perfect at night as a rich moisturizer or on my body for some intense hydration. I received this from octoly for a Sephora review! Claims: — head to toe moisturizer — safe for eczema — instantly absorbed — non greasy Key ingredients: — colloidal oatmeal — Shea butter — allantonin — antioxidant booster My thoughts: — she’s thick, so very thick, and so safe for sensitive skin! — hasn’t caused any reactions, non irritating, soothes redness and dehydration! — heals my moisture barrier fast — perfect on my body post shower to lock in hydration, sinks in really fast and doesn’t leave a white cast or anything — I think it’s suitable for all types, but oily face skin might not be the most appropriate. It didn’t seem to clog my pores at all!
