🔅Skin Concern: Dullness🔅
Sometimes when i pull an all-nighter or have a hectic or jacked up sleeping schedule (pretty much everyday now due to COVID19) my skin looks dull and dry😭. Some stress also makes my skin look dull. So basically when I am not in my tippy top condition, I have dull looking skin. This does bother me to some degree but I have so many products that sort of deal with this skin concern so I never really go out of my way to buy products that target this concern. However, recently I got the PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber De-Tox Foaming Cleanser

PETER THOMAS ROTH
My Go-to Skincare Routine
I've always used Sephora's eye and lip remover, and I finished another bottle last week. I enjoy using it, and it cleanses and removes makeup very well. I use Bioderma's Purifying Cleansing Micelle Solution to remove makeup from my face. I've already finished a bottle and the one in the picture is the new one that I just bought. There is also the milder PETER THOMAS ROTH - Cucumber De-Tox Foaming Cleanserwhich has a foaming pump. I really like the texture of the foam. I usually useLANCÔME - Tonique Confort Comforting Rehydrating Toner first for my morning skincare routine, and I find it quite hydrating. In spring and summer, I will switch to LANCÔME - Tonique Douceur Softening Hydrating Toner with Rose Water, which is more lightweight. I use The Ordinary - Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG as my eye serum. It's amazing for getting rid of puffy eyes. The facial cream I use is LANCÔME - Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturizing Face Cream, which has a light scent that smells amazing. For my nighttime skincare routine, I'll use IPSA The Time Reset Aqua W to maintain skin stability. My lotion is also from IPSA, which is already almost empty. My facial cream is Lancôme's Hydra LANCÔME - Hydra Zen Anti-Stress Moisturizing Face Cream and I'll usually add a drop ofHABA - Squalane l into it to make it more moisturizing.
what the f✨is PHA?
You’ve heard of alpha hydroxy acid and beta hydroxyacids as skin exfoliating and acne killing holy grail’s. but what is a PHA? I first encountered this new acid in OLE HENRIKSEN - Truth Juice Daily Cleanser . Say HELLO! to POLYHYDROXY ACID AHA’s second generation cousin! Common PHAs include glucanolactone, galactose, and lactobionic acid What’s the Difference? like AHA’s, PHAs exfoliate dead skin cells. PHA’s have a larger molecular structure and are mostly surface level. This makes the most irritating and better for sensitive problem skin. They also help prevent collagen demise due to glycation (sugar attachment) Who’s if for? if you have sensitive or dry skin, these could be the chemical exfoliants for you!

Yo Glow Enzyme Facial Scrub Review
❗️Product Review❗️ ⠀ So happy I bought the Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub from @wishfulskin I’ve really been loving this stuff! I use it once a week on clean dry skin! It provides the most gentle exfoliation and has a sweet pineapple scent to it! ⠀ I love that this product contains BHAs and AHAs but is still so gentle on sensitive skin it’s a physical and chemical exfoliator in one! When I use this product my skin feels so smooth and glowy and my makeup applies so beautifully to the skin! This product will definitely be a staple in my routine from now on! 🍍💛HUDA BEAUTY - Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub
HUDA BEAUTY-Yo Glow Facial Enzyme Scrub
Glycolic face wash for oily skin
I’ve been LOVING this AHA brightening cleanser from Herbal Dynamics Beauty for my morning cleanse. It gently exfoliates and I have noticed that it helps slough off dry skin and keep my skin looking fresh. This is also great for my oily skin because while it exfoliates, it also includes grapefruit oil and rosehip oil to help balance the oil without being too drying. The price point is decent ($24) for how long this cleanser lasts. I only use this in the mornings and think any more than once a day would likely be too much. I like the way this foams and highly recommend this cleanser!
Empty: Murad’s Essential-C Cleanser
Think of this cleanser as the cooler older sister of the Clean & Clear Morning Burst. Murad - Essential-C Cleanser is a foaming gel cleanser that is packed with vitamin A, C and E to redistribute moisture to “environmentally damaged skin.” It was designed to cleanse the skin without overdrying your skin. It has a nice citrus scent, but isn’t irritating My take: My mother got me this is a set that included the matching sunscreen about a year ago. I enjoyed basically everything about this cleanser. I started using it while trying to get away from overly soapy cleansers so it did take me a while to accept that it wasn’t going to suds like I was used to. It took a bit, but I loved that I could cleanse my skin without stripping it. (I had it in the 4.5 fl.oz./135 mL, but it doesn’t seem like that is an option anymore.) Recommend? 👍🏾 It comes in the following sizes on Murad.com: 🔘 2 fl.oz. for $12 🔘 6.75 fl.oz. for $39 🔘 16.9 fl.oz. for $68 Available for purchase at Sephora and Ulta, but not in all sizes.
🍚 Empty! The Face Shop Rice Water Bright 🍚
THE FACE SHOP - Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser About me 🤗 and the product 🍚Skin type/skin tone I have combination skin. My t-zone is in the range of normal to oily skin and I have dry skin on my cheeks. My skin tone is warm ivory with a slight reddish discoloration in my cheeks 🧐I also have some freckles across my cheeks and my nose bridge. My skin type for the rest of my body is dry. 🍚Product function The product claims to wash away makeup using a deep-foaming effect, brighten skin ✨✨, and moisturize it as well 💦 🍚Texture/consistency The product is a thick and creamy paste before water and lathering it. After working the paste, it becomes a dense, smooth and soft whipped cream textured foam 😍 . 🍚Packaging The packaging is a squeeze tube with a simple close top mechanism for the top. Beauty story 📖 🍚Overall experience I heard lots of good things about this product so I wanted to try it out of curiosity 🤔. Before I bought this product I had a cream from them which was pretty good so I thought I’d be adventurous and give the cleanser a try. 🍚Verdict💔💔 I didn’t really like the product. After using the product, I felt like my skin was stripped dry of all its oils and moisture. I dont know if it’s because my face is already partially dry but after using the product my face did not feel moisturized as it claimed to have done😤. Also, i dont know if it’s because my face is sensitive, but after using the product it became irritated and tight 😥 🍚Recommend?👎🏻👎🏻 ❌I would not recommend this to people with combination, dry, or sensitive skin because it dries out the skin and irritates it. ✅I would recommend trying though if you have oily skin since it does a great job in washing everything off. It also does make the skin tone brighter as it has claimed. 🍚Worth it?💰 The product was around $8 for 150ml so not extremely expensive. It would be worth ✅it if you’re looking for a strong cleanser but not worth ❌it if you’re looking for a gentle cleanser that moisturizes the skin at the same time. I for sure will not be buying this again and I’m glad I finally emptied it!
THE FACE SHOP- Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser
THE PRODUCT The fresh - Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash functions as a scrub and face cleanser in one! It is marketed as a gentle exfoliant with strawberry extract and sugar grains, and it is supposed to smooth and cleanse the skin. This is a physical exfoliant that uses sugar as the mechanism of scrubbing action! This scrub is targeted at those with uneven or dull skin, as it helps to shed dead skin cells and reveal a brighter complexion. It is also targeted to help exfoliate dry, flaky skin. It also claims to help improve the skin’s texture through exfoliation. The texture of this product is very hard to show in a picture, so I will describe it as best as possible! It starts out as a gooey, sugary scrub, and once you start massaging it into damp skin the sugar grains melt away and it feels more like a standard face wash. It is like a melting scrub which I find super cool! MY HONEST OPINION I wanted to try this because strawberries are my fav fruit EVER, and I have been using and loving it for about two months. This product is a perfect physical scrub for my skin. The sugar is not too rough, and it smells SOOO good. My skin feels so smooth and refreshed after rinsing this off, which I love. Some scrubs don’t have cleansing properties, so I love that this is a scrub and face wash in one. I would definitely recommend this product to others as it is such a fun addition to my routine! I think it would even be great for sensitive skin because it is not too harsh of a scrub. This would be great for teens just getting into a skincare routine because it is a very appealing product, and it is gentle for daily use. I think that the price point of this product is also very fair. I have the mini size, which is 1.6 oz and costs $15. This size is pretty affordable, and it has lasted me a while. The full size is $33 for 4.2 oz. This product is super easy and quick to use, so time and effort aren’t major concerns when using this. It really saves time by being a scrub and wash in one! So overall, 4/5 ⭐️ rating! I love everything about this product from the packaging, formulation, experience, and price, but I hate that Fresh is not a cruelty-free brand. I hope that they become cruelty-free in the future because I would love to repurchase this some day.

Over-Exfoliated Skin: What To Do NextOver-exfoliation has a plethora of symptoms, ranging from redness and inflammation, tightness of the skin, dryness and flakiness, irritation bumps, rashes, breakouts, and a stinging sensation. With the rise in popularity of at-home chemical exfoliation, it’s easier than ever before to take it a step too far. Everyone is trying out TikTok-famous products like The Ordinary’s AHA 30% and BHA 2% Peeling Solution without an understanding of how strong it really is. Chemical exfoliation is all the rage now, due to its ability to clear up acne, even out the skin tone, and give you a glowy look. But none of these things will happen if you don't exfoliate properly!Sep. 29
