Patchy Movement w/ pore enlargement
#influenster #influenstervoxboxe.l.f. - Camo CC Cream #elfcamocream **I RECEIVED THIS PRODUCT FREE FOR REVIEWING PURPOSES** Unfortunately my experience with this CC Cream is not the greatest. This product is supposed to be a no filter color correcting formula infused with collagen, peptides and niacinamide with board spectrum SPF 30 it's supposed to protect your skin with a natural finish. The shade range is about 20 shades with undertones of cool, neutral and warm also labeled in the names of the shades. The color I received was medium 375N with neutral pink undertones I am a brown skin woman with a warm undertone and this shade was too light for me but I still reviewed the product and its ingredients because I received this product for free for reviewing purposes. Let's start with the full coverage claim this is supposed to be full coverage however I do feel like it is medium coverage but it is buildable just be careful upon building and how many layers you do because this does enhance the look of your pores if you have enlarged pores like myself. The smell of the product is minimal but does smell like makeup once applied to my face I realized that it enhanced the look of my pores, I seen patchy spots around my cheek area under my cheekbone and noticed that it started to move. I let the products sit for a few minutes to see how my skin would react I started to notice that there was some irritation where the patches under my cheekbone were. I have enlarged pores and I do feel like this CC cream made them look even bigger and put them under a microscope. In all I would try this product again however I would have to have another shade to fully do my makeup to see how this worked for me and where it all day.

🍚 Dewy Skin Duo: Worth it? 💜
Picked up thisTatcha duo on a whim at Sephora with so many mixed reviews on the new rice wash I had to try for myself! TATCHA - The Rice Wash Skin-Softening Cleanser TOO MUCH fragrance, I really think I would love this cleanser if it was fragrance free, I don’t mind a little scent but this was overpowering and my skin didn’t love it - it’s initially gritty but smooths and lathers really nice with some water. TATCHA - The Dewy Skin Cream This cream is so luxurious ✨ seriously if you want to feel fancy - buy this, I think it would be okay for most skin types, my crazy sensitive didn’t mind it, the fragrance is actually nice and not to overwhelming, I used it in the AM and it kept me nice and hydrated all day long! What did you think of these Tatcha products? ✨💜

To improve your skin
First off I really like the Aztec clay mask. I add a teaspoon of honey and a few drops of the witch hazel. These are great combinations. I highly recommend, becuase it works!! Making my face feel soo nice and soft!!! Let me know if this works for you. You’ll thank me later:D -Some benefits of honey according to my research that: Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention. Aging: Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging. Complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow. -Clay mask benefits: . It will draw the blood flow towards the cheeks and T-zones of the face due to constricting the skin and tissues. It helps to heal acne-prone skin and eases the appearance #THAYERS - Travel Size Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel Toner[products]#[FiveStars] Use organic honey or Manuka Honey.

✨ Luxury Skincare - La Mer ✨
My skin type is typically normal oily, but has been leaning towards normal or normal dry due to using a topical acne cream from my dermatologist and it drying my skin out some. Due to this, acne and hydration are my main skin concerns. I got this ~faNcY~ LA MER - The Treatment Lotion in a Sephora Favorites set a couple months ago that was suited for dry skin! I kept putting off using it because it was so fancy and didn’t want to waste it lol. I decided to grab this specific Sephora Favorites set because it included a couple of mini size products that had been on my wishlist to try and my skin has been more dry so I knew I’d try everything. . Online at Sephora and by the name, I was expecting a thick lotion type product, but it more like a liquid, essence type product. It has a noticeable scent, I’m not sure how to describe it but kind of smells like baby wipes to me lol. It claims to be a fast absorbing treatment that delivers hydration to visibly soften, nurture, and improve the appearance of skin’s texture and support the rest of your La Mer regimen. Their site notes it’s key ingredients include Miracle Broth, Revitalizing Ferment and Softening Waters and that it’s formulated without parabens, phthalates and sulfates. . I used this as more of an essence/serum type product in my routine in between washing my face and moisturizer. It did make my skin somewhat more hydrated and calmed down my skin, but nothing more than any essence or hyaluronic acid serum does. The full size of this at 5 oz costs $165, while there’s a 3.5 oz size for $115. I don’t like how they market that it needs to be used with their other products to make a routine, each product should stand out alone and make you want to purchase it and not make you feel like you need to purchase a whole routine from one brand to actually see results. The price point is very off putting as well, especially when you need to use it consistently to see results. It was just an average product to me and didn’t like the strong fragrance, so I definitely will not be purchasing the full size in the future. This brand is just paying for the name, the Ordinary and Good Molecules make great budget friendly products and you can through in a few extra products if you want to splurge. . #cheriepartner
LA MER-The Treatment Lotion
Works wonders !
So I’ve been on the fence for something that costs so little however I was glad I took a chance. It claims to help with: Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores Reduces the appearance of congestion Balances the overproduction of oil Cruelty-free & vegan Formulated without alcohol, oil, silicone, nuts, or gluten Which is all true ! I suffer from combo/oily skin and have been trying to find the right product. I was using the body shops tea tree concentrate (the watered down one) and it seemed to help control oil but wasn’t balancing my skin the way I wanted. I still suffer from oily skin & enlarged pores but that’s what you get with SPF. I love this product and go back and forth at night with my Radial Dragon Blood hydro mask. ***I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for some clarity with their skin & balancing oil/ pimples! ***

Does 90% Centella Asiatica help?
Does 90% help??? The Answer is - Yes but it can be sensitizing as well. If not used properly it may irritate/ burn skin. 🌿Centella Asiatica (Cica) is very well known in the skincare community to be healing,calming and helping with irritation and inflammation. 🌿But what is Cica? Centella Asiatica is Asiatic/Indian Pennywort, is a herbaceous, perennial plant in the flowering plant family Apiaceae. It is native to the wetlands in Asia. It is used as a culinary vegetable and as a medicinal herb. The medicinal values and wound healing properties are known from ancient medicinal practices and values. The mention of this plant and it’s herbal and medicinal properties is found in Ayurveda (Ancient Indian Medicinal values) and Chinese Gotu Kola. The widespread clinical research speaks about it's quick wound healing properties and it is shown to increase collagen production and increased tensile strength in newly formed skin in the wounded areas. 🌿Now talking about how is it helpful for people with Acne? It works in similar fashion for compromised barrier with Acne, Sun damage and other skin concerns. It helps to heal the skin with rapid collagen production and elasticity. The Centella 90 Ampoule by @pureheals PureHeals - Centella 90 Ampoule has 90% Centella Asiatica ingredient and is relatively inexpensive for that concentration of the ingredient. 🌿Details of the product: ➡️Skin irritation tested. Uses EWG green grade ingredients. ➡️Contains 90% of Centella Extract to soothe irritated skin for a healthy radiance. ➡️Reinforces collapsing skin barrier with Ceramide NP to protect skin. ➡️Fortifies skin moisture barrier to protect skin from the external aggressors. ➡️Contains Adenosine to improves fine lines and Niacinamide for skin brightening. 🌿My experience and thoughts: ➡️Although Cica is known as anti inflammatory and antioxidant, for my Hormonal acne skin 90% Centella Asiatica is too harsh ➡️ The consistency is watery and absorbs quickly but I experienced slight burning on my face which was reactive to my skin and I was fine with it. As I'm sensitive I'm reactivate to few ingredients. This was one of them. ➡️ Did it help my inflammation and irritation? Yes. But at very mild level. Because of it's high concentration my skin was infact facing contact dermatitis so I started using very little amount and it helped. ➡️ I like @elemis Cica hydration juice ELEMIS - Superfood CICA Calm Hydration Juice better than @pureheals one. ➡️ I believe if anyone who has redness and active inflammation, they can use two- three drops and get the benefits of this. ➡️ Niacinamide and other ingredients are perfect in this formulation and they definitely help with hyperpigmentation. Do you like Centella? Which products do you like and helped you?? Let me know! ❤️
