💸Luxury Skincare Pt. 4💸
💸 I have combination skin so 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 (sun spots) across my cheeks and my nose bridge (which bother me!). I also have very sensitive skin so I am alwyas cautious with new products or else my skin will becom super red and peel! 💸My first brand for skincare is Olay so when I go out shopping for new skincare, I always peep at what’s new in the Olay section. I bought this OLAY - Total Effects Whip Fragrance-Free Face Moisturizer SPF 25

Just ok AM cream, not worth the $$
Key Ingredients: Antioxidants and essential oils (hesitant about using these since I’ve heard that essential oils sensitize the skin if used long-term, but maybe it depends on the type they are?) . Scent: Very strong coconut scent . Consistency/Texture: Lightweight cream . Price: $68 for 1.7 oz . Experience: This did provide a good amount of moisture to my skin when it was combo dry and when it was combo oily, but didn’t make my skin oily or shiny. The scent is very strong and lingers for an hour or so before it dissipates. I haven’t been wearing face makeup, so can’t speak to its priming claims. It quickly absorbs into the skin and feels very lightweight. This didn’t cause any breakouts for me. I didn’t notice any difference in my pores, fine lines or wrinkles, but this sample size only last me a few weeks. . Repurchase/Recommend: No, while it is a good AM moisturizer, I just can’t justify spending almost $70 on a moisturizer!! It provides a good amount of hydration for when my skin is combo dry skin and when it is also more oily, but without making it oily. I would suggest it if you want to splurge on a good AM moisturizer and aren’t sensitive to fragrance. However, I think the First Aid Beauty Priming Moisturizer works just as well as this one at half the price and the Good Molecules one at a way cheaper price.

Dramatically Different JELLY 🍇🍯
I have always been a fan of Clinique’s “Dramatically Different” line of skincare, so I was very excited to try out this jelly from the same line! My skin is normal to dry and can be a bit sensitive. I like the texture of this a lot more than Clinique’s other moisturizers from the same line! I find it to be lighter and better absorbed into my skin. While I do like it, this is a pretty run-of-the-mill moisturizer in my opinion. It’s not too heavy, not too light. I tend to lean toward brands with more of an aesthetic, so I probably will not purchase this product again. But if you think you want to try it, definitely give it a go!

the GLOW!!! ✨✨✨
GLAMGLOW - Barbie x Limited Edition Glowstarter Mega-Illuminating Moisturizer First off, I’ve used this product in the shade “nude glow” and LOVED how it looked on my skin alone or under makeup. This Barbie edition came out (same price as original so you’re not just paying for the name) in a beautiful pink so I had to grab it. If you don’t like a thick cream feeling on your face then this is NOT for you. I have combo skin, and this glow moisturizer works wonders on my cheeks no matter the season! In the winter it keeps the moisture locked in my cheeks and in the summer it continues to make me glow. I personally love using it on my “no-makeup makeup” days where I just use concealer on any spots and this moisturizer on my cheeks with a little bit of powder in the t zone. I find this is the most flattering way to wear it and really show off the shine, but it is still very beautiful under foundation - you lose some of the glow but you keep the moisture. Absolutely looooove this moisturizer and find it very underrated. SIDE NOTE: I don’t use this on my t zone at all because I’m oily, so I really keep it to my cheeks or else it is too glossy.
GLAMGLOW-Barbie x Limited Edition Glowstarter Mega-Illuminating Moisturizer
Yes I said it this is cheap gold! 👑This is my go to cream after a day out in the sun🌞 or laying out at the pool 🏖when my skin needs a super dense drink of moisture!!! 💲3.67 @ Walmart for 2 yes 2 jars!!!! Honestly it doesn’t get much better than that. Fruit of the Earth - Vitamin E, Skin Care Cream Not that I have anything against products that are not made in the USA this item is an all American product. 🌞💦WHAT IS IN IT?! ￼ this cream contains natures most effective dry skin eliminators! There’s vitamin E, Aloe Vera, wheat germ, sunflower seed oil, collagen, and elastin. ⭐️🤗THE CLAIMS!! ￼ This product claims that all of these wonderful ingredients are meant to minimize the signs of aging, add moisture, soothe, and protect. It also claims that you can use it everywhere yes even on your face. ❤️🥰💦 MY EXPERIENCE ￼I Have been using this product since I was 16 years old, I am now 32 so obviously I am a diehard of this cream! I do not use this cream everyday. In fact I only use it on the days that I can tell my skin is really dry or if I’m having an itchy skin spell because of hormones, but ALWAYS after a day of tanning by the pool this is my perfect after sun ☀️ care for my skin. I have never used this cream on my face. I don’t know what it would do and it is a very dense cream and it does take a little time to soak in. Even if you’ve been sunburned and you’ve put your aloe vera gel on this is a great follow up to just help give some deep moisture to your skin and it will help lessen the amount of peeling that happens. Also my husband and my children have very sensitive skin and we can only use certain detergents and when their skin gets irritated it also gets very very dry and itchy. I just apply this and it immediately takes care of the irritation. P.S. Hope you like my lotion model! That was my youngest princess always happy to help! I cannot say it enough I love love love love this product!!!!!❤️❤️❤️🤗

Mamonde Floral Hydro Cream with Narcissus Flower
➤ ⠀ 𝑰𝑵 𝑻𝑯𝑰𝑺 𝑺𝑯𝑶𝑻: 💧 @mamonde_us Floral Hydro Cream with Narcissus Flower 💧 It is a lightweight gel-cream that instantly refreshes and hydrates the skin. It is recommended for oily and acne-prone skin and/or for use in hot temperatures, though it is suitable for all skin types. 💧 It is formulated with Narcissus flower whose bulb is known to store moisture throughout the winter. Due to this, the Narcissus flower is able to hydrate multiple flower heads when it blooms in the summer. 💧 It has a very refreshing floral scent and it hydrates without leaving any sticky residue. This is by far one of my fave new moisturizers for this reason and season ☀️🥵 Have you tried anything from @mamonde_us? Mamonde - Floral Hydro Cream

Avène Thermal Spring Water
Product Function: Avène claims that this spray soothes, softens, and calms the skin with its central ingredient as Avene’s thermal spring water. It reduces skin sensitivity and helps to restore skin balance. It can also help to soothe redness and calm itching sensations and it is safe for infants, children,and adults to use. Product Target Concerns: Skin sensitivity and redness Texture/Consistency: It has the consistency of water (which is expected of a product named “thermal water”) that sinks into the skin nicely. Overall Opinion: C’est seulement de l’eau dans une bouteille, n’est pas?! FAUX! It’s just water in a bottle, right?! WRONG! I’d heard a lot of really good things about this thermal spring water and I had to try it out to see if it’s worth the hype and I can definitively say that it is. My skin was super sensitized and red a couple of weeks ago, so that applying any products stung. But after spraying this on my skin and letting it sit for a couple of minutes, my skin calmed down significantly and didn’t sting anymore! I love this product and I am definitely going to buy another one when I run out. Would We Recommend? 11/10 would recommend to anyone, especially those with sensitive skin. It is very effective at calming down sensitive skin and for $18.50 for 300 mL, it is honestly a steal. It’s affordable, works wonders, and lasts so long! Rating: 5/5
